"I'm your host k j and today we got a special guest because what we're doing today is we're really talking ammunition and i know you guys are out there you're screaming. Where's the ammo. But we've found the ammo and what we're talking about. Today is rimington's new core locks tipped. Yes it's new tipped and we've actually got some animals on the ground with it and here to talk with me about that. Today is joel hodgson. Wormington ammunition joel. How you doing abe. I'm glad to be here. And i'm always talker walk. So let's do it. It's good to talk because you know. I think what a lot of folks thought was ruined. Remington rim cammo didn't go anywhere i think that needs to be set it remington ammo did not all of a sudden go. Well we're closing the doors. That's right that's right. We we took a little nap last falk. Aj but you know over the last year we've really bumped up production in we've hired hundreds and hundreds of people and i mean you've been our factory man yet cpas just cranking it out so it's cool to see the energy back in our plant in arkansas. All those new workers in the door and yet we're we're making more than ever yet. When we were in lonoke it was really amazing me because i at some point inevitably i get separated from the group just it just how it happens and i was actually outside shooting some and it was during a shift change. So the day crew was leaving the night crew was coming in and not a single person i saw entering. That building didn't have a smile on their face. And i think that's not something to be said from that And the people who are leaving man they hadn't even bigger smaller face they were either going to shoot Looking forward to the next day but people are happy to be there. I think so. And you know i like. We both grew up hunting shooting. I'm sure tons your listeners. Did too and that's really our whole factory. I mean you know. I don't think he'd take a job at a ammo plant. Unless you own the trigger and having fun what you're making and so we got a lot of good old boys in good old gals from from Middle arkansas there were at our plan in. So it's it's definitely a passion. You can tell a lot of folks really excited. You know you gave me an idea. Just right now to sit there and go wait if if i can't find him. Oh and i need ammo. Let's go work at an ammo plant. Like i think like anyone out there using their listening ears or if they're watching this on on youtube or whatever platform you're on like maybe that's the idea. I mean i'm sure you guys got some positions opening up all the time because you're producing twenty four seven. I mean shame was plugged. Please come work for us if you live anywhere around central arkansas. We are hiring and it's not just. Yeah we've got plenty of positions for everybody. I mean that's operations finance accounting supply chain. You know out on the floor making product every day like we've got plenty of good spot so come on by and You know what age are. No i sent i sent you. You might get a finder. See i don. I don't know about that but range and we'll work something out so yeah that's see. That sounds good but of we. It's funny how we got. Kind of sidetracked. But we were sitting here and we're talking about Corlett tipped really kind of our focus today in and i bring up remington. Not going anywhere because you know. Typically in tougher times companies kind of scale back. They kind of watch how. The market's going to go and then all of a sudden they're like okay. Now we can start ramping up. Remington didn't do that instead. Remington chose to deliver something. Which honestly. I thought it was crazy. Because you're you're not changing something but you're adding something to a traditional like presence in all of our range backs and that's core locked. That's right if it seems it seems audacious but remington. Does that. well you know i. So when our new parent company walked in the door year ago and we wanted to get remington back on its feet big. Big big green back to me. Nothing says rimington corps. Lots right. It's the deadliest lesser in the woods. It's probably put more animals on the ground that any over the any other bullet relaxed eighty years right especially more white tails and you know i. I'm kansas guy right. Deer hunting is like my passion. So that's for me. You know it was that green yellow box korla grown up in so you know our management challenge us and said hey how do we take to make it better And that's what we went off and did and then. I should also very important caveat here. So we're not stopping making core locks. We're making millions and millions around the core locks yuban up the page in our catalog get on. Our website remains dot com and see core locked. We're making you know. Twenty five odd six to three hundred wisdom or bigger right Locked and we're not going to change that what we're doing is we're big green. We got the capacity. Got the room in the factory. We said hey. How do we add on something special. Bring a new product in approved core locked. And i think that's what we did with one. I think i think guys need to understand. First what quarterback tipped is so. I'm gonna let you give a brief rundown. And i'm gonna give you the application. Because i just returned from end a western big game hunt antelope hunting where we got to utilize In two seventy The corlett tipped. And i'm gonna tell you how that went down but let's i get an idea of what exactly are we talking about. Core lock. tips awesome. Yeah so. I think you know. I'm going to describe it but again encourage folks to hop on our website hop on social media chocolate all the cool video graphics illustrations. We have with this new bullet end this new Family but really what it is k. J. is We took that traditional corn locked. Locked boyd right. Lead jacket copper. Or i'm sorry lead corker copper jacket locked together right right like we always have and we said hey. How do we make it better. How do we improve the bc. How improve the accuracy of around How do we make more central to like. You're like a western hunt down. So what we did is he. Put a palmer. Tippett a synthetic tip and what we've seen is that's about a twenty percent accuracy improvement versus traditional core locks and so You know we still got the classic. He has p roundnose or locked. But now we've got the tip version that i think doesn't awesome job of maintaining that same terminal performance so it's the same art hitting power it late on your deal late on your meal. Whatever you want but now we've added that extra kinda icing on top of better. Accuracy of palmer tip better be see any you. I think it's really a kind of a all range bullet that you know for the first time you can stack up against a newer bullet like a you know an acura bond. The necess- t. Adrenal ac- i think. Now korac finally in that consideration said so on encourage folks to try out and see what you think compared to the classic We're real excited about for sure. Now there's there's a big difference in in western big game hunting. I think when guys think of western big game hunting they think edf open range. And that's really what what i think. You're you're hitting on really big time. But guys like in georgia or south carolina or louisiana. Tennessee like those guys aren't taking those further ranging shots and they don't and if you look at wind wind specific to hunt when can kill a hunt for sure we all know that and in my dealings with it because i want more open plains kind of like what you did in kansas. It wins just a killer on especially when it comes to ballistics. That's right and you know so then kind kinda fight that a little bit you wanna give yourself as much as possible and you wanna use a bullet that is going to be a little more forgiving more flat shooting one more accurate further out. So i tell that guy in louisiana in tennessee alabama look if your stole whacking a deer at twenty five fifty yards tips. You know go with the classic stuff. Right go Classic do what you've always done or making any of that. I promise you guys you'll be able to find it. But for the for the dude that wants to go out to kansas wyoming colorado. And you're taking that hundred three hundred four hundred even further than that. These guys i mean. I've seen some of the distances. They're shooting and right now. I wouldn't do that just me personally. and i've got a whole grant that i could go off on long range but you've gotta make sure your gears in order and and what i noticed so one of our dear dear..

"A lot of eastern white deal hunters and all and now. You've got a lot of attention of people hunting out west doing long range shooting warning to do long range shooting and they speak in these strains tongues used phrases like bc. You know what is the bbc. What's the ballistic coefficient. Give me an idea of a couple of these bullets. Where are we with these. Yes so you're gonna see definitely an improvement over that classic pointed soft point point that you've you've come to expect with korac so court lock you know. We range from like a point. Three five five up to a point five three zero and to give them the listeners. An example You know my favorite Cartridge my favorite caliber one hundred one hundred eighty grain three winchester. You know you you take a big bowl like that and our traditional core locks with our Soft point you're getting like a point. Two eight four. You know respectable but nothing to write home about no and now if that exact same grain wait steam chamber thin caliber winchester You're going up two point. Three eight three. So you know practically speaking tom that means at a at a three hundred yard shots know with the old school core locked You're gonna get a drop of about nine inches at three hundred yards right. And and then with the new stuff with quarterback tips you dropping about six inches a little over six and a half inches so I think it's just a again a great option for a newly hunt and alcon pronghorns Something that's not just up in that white town the woods back and it's not just drop with a higher bc. You really seriously do reduce the wind drift. And that's maybe even more important you do. You do wind drift and the bullets more efficient in flight. And then you know. I think there's some really great data and research out there on the effect of palmer tips on expansion as well so you know. We think that. Not only that bullet going to get them more efficiently and be more accurate Give you better long-range potential. But with that palmer tip. It's going to shear off an impact like we'd come to see happens and fluid will fill that cavity and then the boardwalk band as well so You know some of the deadliest that we've seen from korla. Tips are just as impressive as the original core walk and in some cases. I think he's better all right. Joel got an authority here because you may not know the answer this. I didn't tell you. I was going to ask this but it just popped up. Maybe a homework assignment. You may have to go find out and come back and let us know later. But we're seeing in forty five. Acp and ten millimeter cases using spall primers whereas those were large pistol. Primers in the past. You have any idea why we're seeing this change. But i i i don't tom I'm just the marketing guy. What i'm gonna do is i'm gonna go to the really. Smart engineers are folks that remington asking if they've heard about this Of course you know with with ten millimeter getting more and more popular than than we hear every day. And we've actually got a a couple of ten millimeter offering coming out soon as well in our high turnover performance handgun wine. So you know i'll I'll get back tom. Great question you know. If you'd have some tim coming out. I know i know where you could get some of that. Actually did we lose him. Oh no we just lost him. You know i know what happened. He said he had ten millimeter. Now i was about to say. I know where you could send some of that for testing and then that's all of a sudden. Oh we lost him. Young up did happen there. You go cool stuff. Yeah obviously remington. Wherever you get your ramdan stuff tipped korla.

"Aren't searching Names So you don't have the fame son or what. Maybe so. yeah so we all are figuring out how to make it work. And i think people are also just being more flexible in compassionate with each other. You know i mean i had. I have a client. Who had her baby on her. While we were doing our session. I offered to reschedule. And she's like this is this is like she won't she won't mind. She wants to be an. I'm where i wanna be. So i think we all are doing arrested. Make it work these days. That is wonderful that probably the perfect place to wrap things up. I just realized we're almost going on an hour. Where we need to divide you into two episodes. I know you might have to be a two episode. Or i could go on for another hour talking about habits. I would love to let you go on and on but we'll yeah we'll schedule something because i feel like there's a lot to talk about. You've said so many things that i'm like. I wanted to a whole episode on that well so because of that we may have to do a little shorter version of look. Listen learn Just pick. I pick a favorite ones so we can make sure the whole idea is that podcast is for busy moms. We we try to make it. You know we've been trying to make it About a thirty minute episode. And so far. I don't think we've gotten it below forty five because no we'd like to chat. We don't very often so when we do. You can't stop us. Maybe we can. Maybe its strengths in one and habits and the other we could fill the whole week. Maybe that's what we'll do. We'll just do a whole week of january so funny. So what have you been listening and learning or just pick one the thing. Well we we looked at. We watched last night. That truman show. Had you never seen it. I had seen it okay. We've been watching wanda vision. And i keep on saying this like this seems really familiar truman. Show and then the kids are like was show that the old so we watched the preview a couple of weeks ago. And they're like okay. I think we watch that so we finally watched it and it was so funny because afterwards my son who's eleven looked at me. He's like you know what. I googled name yesterday to make sure that you guys aren't just doing a tv show about me. Thought he thought maybe he was the next truman disappointed. I think he was ki- kinda was like people are not actors. This is really who they are. This is just your real life kids. Not maybe that's why he thought he had a. He was practicing an essay for school. Admissions test and the question was to write about time. You've been happy and he is. I like any graham. Seven is the seven. That's the real happy. Go lucky like john shine and things good and happy whatever and he just looked at me and he's like i can't remember a time i was happy and he said it very dramatic like in a a silly way but i think i think in his joke. It was partially partially true. Because you know when you're eleven and you've spent ten percent of your life stuck indoors with your family that's got a mess with your mind a little bit. You just messed with mine. By putting in percentage around it. I know you're like i can't blame him for wishing he was on the truman show as an excuse for why he can't leave anywhere. Maybe maybe there isn't a pandemic. my parents are just trapping. Me here for my airing of my show. What we need is another conspiracy. Yes the truman conspiracy. Our kids are going to be like big my ears. It's because i have to be here for my show. If they thought that at least my they might be more pleased with the whole situation. I'm going to go out and make mine watch it. That's the deal. we're on a show to. Yeah we're just for lockdown. Sorry get now. Maybe they would behave a little better. They knew they were on his hatred. Also being films twenty. Four seven about you. I have been reading v. Drake starts over have you either of you read that. I've never even heard of it. I had. I can't believe i hadn't heard of it somehow. I missed it. It's by linda. Holmes who is. She has a podcast. I don't know if anybody listen either of you. Listen to pop culture happy hour too. So it's super fun. It's usually fairly short. But it's a roundtable of several people and they delve into either a topic or film or just something pop culture. And i love it. It's a great podcasts. I missed that. She wrote a book. i don't know so she did. She only talk about it in one episode and i missed that episode. I don't know and then a friend of mine passed the book on me and it's just it's fun it's light but it's not fluffy if that makes sense great book with great characters and so it's fiction it's fiction arquette and one of those books that you think. Oh i just wanna go. I just want to go be in that world for a little while set in maine which is my dream and so i do. Tried to get an island for my birthday and it didn't happen over our anniversary.

Personal growth is like by jam. So i wanna talk about. I'd love to love to be resourceful. Feed so yes that's awesome.

"If because if you're just done making decisions for the day i mean you've had to figure out all these different things we get to that point where i'm just like i don't even know. Just go get anything from any restaurant. I don't even want to have to decide what i'm eating for dinner tonight. Choose i said that's a lot like don't make me choose the so if you're that done at the end of the day just making basic keeping you alive decisions. And how can you expect your brain to make any more decisions. That are the good ones about this. Will bring that you're trying to achieve whereas if it's a habit and it's just something you do and you don't even think about it is just one less thing to think about. Absolutely i mean there's there's so many great books i know you guys Mentioned atomic habits a previous podcast. I really like the book Tiny habits so he wanted to dig in on this. These are breaking down into micro decisions around a habit you want to build and it's a sad them with breaking breaking habits habits. You wanna break in. So we wanted to take as much of the decision making our process like at the highest level in the cliff notes version. Is you wanna make few decisions as possible. So you want as much of the process to be on autopilot as you can get for example. I now walk with someone every day at six. Am i can guarantee you that. I have not walked for three miles every morning every weekday morning. If she wasn't standing out in front of my house. I don't have to make the decision about when and where and how far walk and all of that is wrapped up. I made that decision once in a committed to another person just that put on a beer together so if it's a cold day put on this and if it's not at all in the same place so it's not automatic but it is close to automatic as my body can get and i now walks three miles a day at the beginning of every day. Six to seven. Am so that's an examining. That's just one example. But i took as many of the decisions when where how who out of it into now it. It just automatically Not automatic automatic. The thing is like if i if i want to be honest with you which i do so much of coaching is about helping people to change small habits to get themselves on the path what they want. Sometimes they don't know what they want x. Less common most of the time people know what they want in can't get there because there's too many obstacles in their way often times. A lot of those obstacles can be overcome without arraigning habit. However thinking all right all of these things are so we can get tripped up on so yeah and actually before we jump into the look with enlarged. I wanted to talk about more this coaching and hiring a coach. And the way that you work with your clients so it sounds like you don't have to be in the austin area correct to be able to work with you at something that especially during covid times that you can do virtually. So i'm guessing most coaches work like that. yes. I think that i don't. I don't know what the numbers were. Before i decided you know virtual and Seeing my clients on zoom worked for my family answer in enabled me to be able to grow my business. So there are quite a few coaches who see who saw before covid evil virtually I think almost every coach does now. So yeah and i've had. I've had clients on the continent. Africa had clients in europe. So i think one of the benefits of this virtual world that we are all now in I've been here doing this for a long time. It's i find it's just. It's not quite the same as being in person with someone but it is really nice. It's really nice to be able to see someone up close. We often see a little closer on virtual screens. That we might in real life might not sit face-to-face this year to really take notes in dive into things So so yeah. I love working with people. This way. And i noticed that a lot of even therapists and our doctors are now moving to tell al so i think it's i don't know how many people will go back to in person. It certainly super helpful for us to be able to to not stop getting the help and the resources we need. Oh yuck because. I think it's such a valuable resource for people trying to meet their goals. Or just kinda get settled in their mind. What's what's going on in their But we can always find somebody. Excuses child care or Or traffic is too hard to get there. It's just nice to know that you can access this. Great resource coaches like you. I was about to say. I think the huge obstacle for a lot of people whether it's perceived or real is just the getting out of the house to do it when you remove that that's one barrier gone if you can just sit down and log onto zoom and you. Don't have your house clean. I would love to show you guys the my closet right now like you can sit down and log onto zoom and this is what they see and you don't have to wear pants in just and i have a client here. She was working on habits. And so we actually long time she She did ram call and she wouldn't take one hour walk during our coaching time. And so we're great way. You know it was something that we discovered that. She said she never had time for herself. And she was dedicating these hours to herself care and but she was missing getting getting out. So we experimented and what was nice is through that process. We discover that. She's a genetic learner like she. Stuffs settled into her in a different way and she's got a lot out of that time so i think it's great to have any kind of health all of the things that we need to do need around arrives. That's never been more true for mothers. That made is now You know having you know in my house for still doing virtual school so my my work has to fit around being the monitor making sure people.

"I will give your name to every person i know has a. It's a good sales quality. Brian show bag is. That's an example of something that might not be attractive to you or i because we don't need it for our work but a lot of times. What are shrinks are actually pull us into certain kinds of careers. So so. that's something else people might look at it. If it's the are like you mentioned that people are looking at getting back into the workforce. It's a great place to start. You are kind of shaking up the dust and you want to get back into. It might be a great place to have some real positive language around yourself. That's actually a really interesting point. Because i guess. I have primarily thought of a lot of these tasks as something that people would use to either start a new career or get back into the workforce and kinda fresh nipson skills but for someone. Who's like okay. I'm brand news. Stay at home mom. I don't know these things about myself. there's still value in knowing that and knowing yourself and having better understanding of what drives you what your skills are. Even if you don't feel like you're going to be negotiating a business meeting anymore just negoti you're gonna be negotiating though. Yeah exactly yeah just different. Yep they're smaller clients. They're the most demanding clients. You will ever have benefits terrible terrible to take your clients with you the worst back when we what is that again. What are those. oh. I miss airplanes. Did you ever think you'd say that. No i'm just out of my own curiosity you're so well-versed in the strength finder. Like how were you introduced to it. And how long have you been doing it. Yes i i learned about it from that first job where we did admire. Sprague's ended the myers briggs weeded strength. Finders we did all kinds of team team building activities and this was. This was one of them. But i kind of put it away because i i just did a lot of things away. Anna back out After i became a coach and you know it was really fun to look at them. Most fifteen at the time fifteen years later. So it's a. I love it because it really does. Stand the test of time too. So that's that's another reason. I really did i mention that. It's not very expensive. Compared to some of the other strengths. I love that part of it is. They're a cheap strength for strength you. That's a good question are all i'll get back to you on are frugal. This know that one like i value that. But i'm batted putting it into practice because i'm lazy about it whereas like oh well this one. I can stomach the cost of that. So i'm just going to do it. I'm not gonna look for the cheaper one. Yeah i would say like just rolling through the list. It's probably going to be a disciplined. Strength is gonna be You know where being frugal end to. Discipline is executing strength. It's knowing what you want and being willing to hold yourself too much money manager behavior what you will do and won't do the doing. It's not doing too because you're very clear on what you watch. I'm guessing that's like number thirty six for me. I just think he primarily trying to like exercise and eat right So this isn't even like a work related thing. But just i don't know if it's pandemic nece or what i feel like i have just lost. All of my was now willpower. What was it just discipline lost all my discipline and willpower to be able to just kind of stick to those goals that in this you know i heard in one of your other.

"That's all in in playfulness. So you have your first. Two strengths are inputs in each heuristic. Okay and those are strategic strengths. And so those are you know thinking big things. They're getting not necessarily the getting stuff done but seeing the big picture so of those two so we talked about input. So futuristic this is this is where your creativity being a visionary inspiring other people using your imagination. So does that are those resonating with you for your futuristic strength. I think so. I wouldn't i do. I don't know if i do a lot of inspiring others in creative pursuits. Yeah and so you know when we're looking at the your first two And by the way might not have heard it but missy was saying oh yeah you do so. I'm just gonna guess your meeting leading this and you have a community that's listening to you. This is where you know. I'm not your coach. But i would say you probably might not be giving yourself enough credit here. Just just a hunch. Okay so your strategic is how we move forward in us our best resources so if something needs to be done. This is where you're going to look at. How do i make it happen. You're going to be thinking about your current problems that i'm referring to my notes. Hopefully you don't mind Dreaming about how to overcome tomorrow's big challenges and for the best ways to move forward so there's quite a few different strengths. Does that does that about right. Especially like in your advocacy work. You are getting things done. Maybe you don't have an execute or strength but you are absolutely looking at. Here's the problem like with the bus driver thing which that's a whole story that we're not going to tell right now on the podcast but i mean you saw a problem. You have bus drivers who needed help. And you've fixed it in like minutes. I mean it was a half a day you were like this is what we're gonna do and this is how we're going to get food and drinks to these bus drivers who weren't supposed to be working on this day. I'm summarizing really badly but you did it like you're super passionate and i think that shows..

"The myers briggs at one of my first jobs back my very first job in fact and you know taking it again. After i was a mother. I think i took it about ten years ago. And yeah the. The results had changed completely. I'd kind of i think. Let go of my control freak side and just had become more is whatever's going to happen today is going to happen which is kind of what my life at a stay at home. Mom was so no. I'm really interested in this. And i love the idea that there's this flexibility and believed that yes. It is a point in time and it doesn't define you forever but it's how you can take a look at where you're at right now and see what you wanna move in the adjustments or tweaks that you wanna make like if you see a strength that you either low like say we go deeper than the five and in my top twenty. There is something that i wish i had more. Can you develop it. Can you say like i know. They say you can teach children. They don't use the word stick to it of nece but you can teach him to have that moxie gumption. Can you say. I want this strength to be more prevalent in my life absolutely and in fact while i don't usually suggest that like right off the bat i find that once we go through. Someone's strengths like you know. Suzanne if we were to go through your strengths or likely started to talk about a little hard time about not having executing strength so for example when i might do is encourage you to look at some of the get it done strengths. So for example just based on a little bit that you shared with me. You might look at the achiever strength. So the achiever works. Hard has a lot of stamina take satisfaction from getting things done in moving explore so we might just decide as a team that you're cheaper strength is number six on your list..

"I don't think the big stuff that i really want to get done. I get done. I do a lot of the things that i wanna use to procrastinate. The thing i'm not getting done back filling your busy. I'm filling a busy with a bunch of little amount a little things. That didn't actually need to get done Do you want to tell everybody what your top strengths are. yes and i will. I will confess right now. I am brand new to this today. I just got my handy ops zander book and test in the mail today so these words are kind of new to me but so i have input futuristic adaptability developer and empathy. So when you read this were there any crystal. How did you feel. Did it feel like a yeah. That's just a or to. Do you know what i since. I'm since i'm so new to it. I don't know that. I know like the follow enough definition of each of them to know that i do know and i don't know if this says something about me at least two questions on the test itself because they give you twenty seconds per question and two of them they just took away from me and said like if you're out getting a snack you know get ready. So does that does that. Impact the accuracy of the test. Or do they use that to inform that this is the kind of person that really takes too long to think about the only one who ran out of time taking the any on any one question. The good news. They ask a lot of questions in a lot of different ways in some of them are really close like You know empathy and developer a really close in empty in harmony. really close. so what they're doing is asking. You know it's not just. They'll ask some apples to oranges. And then they'll ask apples to apples and then at green apple steel apple so they're going to dissect it in lots of different ways Okay they apples to oranges ones. Threw me off. It's really tricky riots. I love to hear what three what what was that about. That i wish is so funny. I almost took a screenshot of one of the pages. But then i look down. The left is do not take any. Oh and now. I can't even think of exactly what it was. But it was basically like Do you like high or do you like hamburgers. And so i was like i like both or there was some whereas like i am neither so i would just do the middle. Yeah and so. I was curious then. I'm like oh i don't know is it. Is it knowing that. I'm neither of these instead of both of these and i'm sure that they have looked through this a million different ways and what i would say about that. Is i know test. that's perfect. I'm just say you know all of this is one point in time. It's an imperfect system. What i would say is we just do the best leeann. I've actually took the test first jobs i worked at a startup. They offered this as a as a team development. And then i took it began as a coach so you know twenty years later and mine had changed and changed quite a bit men so it's interesting so on any day so on this day on january thirty first..

What her strengths. So when i'm listening to what you've got going on. I am listening to it through the lens Right so Do you mind if i tell the. Tell the world what your strengths are. Would you like you tell them to tell them. Yours in the intro. But we'll go to that. We'll get to that. So we'll start with me really let me introduce missy sure. Strengths are context. Empathy harmony restorative and adaptability. So just that is a real first of all of course it is. That's so you but if you were having trouble with remembering your strengths for example let's just dig in earn. Is everyone that insecure. Feels a little tricky free. Who sometimes when you were Restorative and adaptability both of high. Okay well let's just start with immerse store so so just so everybody knows restored. It is executing strength so in executing strength is a get it done strength so the fact that you haven't get it done strength is super important. Not everybody has a get done strength suzanne. You don't have any get strikes doesn't mean stuff done but gun seems about right. I get stuff started. Yes you do awesome so so missy this is your get. It done strength. This is your problem. Saw in Strength so this number shortage strength actually goes really nicely with harmony which is which is your third strength so for you. So is there something. Mci feels tricky about restoratives. That we can. I can answer or wink. I don't always feel like get it done person. Because i do also have like this ever really mean internal voice and she's not nice to me and she's a critic and nothing is ever quite done perfectly so i really i want things to be done super well and so if i see that.

So much for having me jump in with the initial question. I had because i am a little bit of a test addict. I draw the line at the ones on facebook that like what kind of cheesecake or you. Or whatever tests. But as far as like you know myers briggs the strength finder and we are learning more and more about the program. I just loved taking them But i don't say. I necessarily act on the findings. It's more of just a. This is interesting. Okay now. I i am so would love to hear some more from you about like. I know that you love the strengths. Finder like some of these different tests and the different purposes they serve and how people can use them to learn more about themselves and what they should be doing with their lives. Yeah that's a great question and a great place to start. So i like to use the strength finder It's it's my go-to it's where i start with most of my clients. In fact it's the world gift i give most of my clients if they haven't already taken the test themselves so there it is soon so most of my clients. Are i. guess not most. Many people that come to coaching have already like you said have already taken an assessment or two. They may have taken. Any graham or myers briggs people who are seeking out coaching are often in a self growth mindset anyway personal growth mindset and so in my intake with most clients. I ask them what. Your myers briggs. What's this i had a client. Send over her color her color scheme and there's an assessment around colors and she was a red and i had to go read up on what that meant kinds of assessments out there and so what i would say is i encourage anyone to look at the language around it and if it really speaks to you then that's a great one for you..
Fisher Vs. Keynes: Investing Tragedy And Triumph
"Irving fisher was born in eighteen sixty seven in the town of saugerties. New york got his phd economics from yale in eighteen ninety one and for most of his adult life he enjoyed this almost unparalleled streak of success. Yeah not just as a great economist but also as an entrepreneur and investor. Tim harford is the author of the data detective. A new book that includes a chapter about irving fisher. He was the basically the inventor of what we now call the rolodex card filing system. That made him a multimillionaire. He was a diet and fitness expert. He published a book called how to live which was the freakonomics of its day. Only sold five hundred thousand copies. He set up the life extension institute. He was a campaigner on prohibition. He was a vegetarian. Assist an astonishing a prolific campaigner and thinker and he made a lot of money in the markets for a while as the stock market in the nineteen twenties was going up and up fisher was investing more and more money into it in fact even though he was already investing a ton of his own money he was also borrowing even more money to invest in stocks so that he could boost his returns fisher was just supremely confident about his forecast that the market would keep going up confident both in his own intelligence and also in the possibility of using data and statistics to predict the future. So that's where irving fisher was right before the crash of nineteen twenty. Nine john maynard. Keynes the other. Great economists of the era got there a little differently. Canes was definitely already considered one of the great economic minds of the time and just like irving fischer canes knew. He was the smartest guy in every room. He walked into same. Yeah me too something. We all share with gains right. But unlike irving fisher john maynard. Keynes had gotten some things wrong. By that point he had been humbled by the market before he had an early investment fund immediately after the first world war that just went went bankrupt and it was fine canes raise more money went back into the market. Got everyone's cashback. Everyone lived happily ever after but he had that experience going. Oh yeah. I thought i was smart on the market. Maybe i'm not smart on the market when the crash of one thousand nine hundred nine arrive. The stock market collapsed more than twenty percent in two days and within three years it had fallen more than eighty nine percent from where it was before the crash. Both and john maynard. Keynes lost a lot of money on their investments in the crash but there is a huge difference in how they responded so after the crash fisher kept doubling down on the same investments. He even kept borrowing money to invest in the same. Losing stocks for example fisher owned stock in a company called remington rand and right before the crash remington rand stock was at fifty eight dollars share but after the crash of two three months it was twenty eight dollars. A share and fisher was borrowing money and buying more shares at twenty eight dollars for years into the crash. It was one dollars a share. That is how to be a millionaire. Lose everything maybe fisher believed that his precious data just could not be wrong or that he could not be wrong or that. His self worth was tied up in this idea that he was right. Whatever the case he couldn't change his mind and he lost everything. Canes was different kane street at his failures as a chance to learn a chance to improve his process up to the crash he'd been investing based on his ability to predict the ups and downs of the whole economy. But after the crash he decided that that was just too hard to unknowable so he changed his strategy to investing in companies that he believed had good management and he thought would go up over time no matter what the overall economy was doing. Canes made a fortune for himself and for the endowment of king's college us money he was managing one of the things he said when he was trying to raise money from his own father was win or lose. This high stakes gaming amuses me. That's that's just an amazing linked to say when you're trying to persuade someone to give you money and yet in the end it helps because he just didn't take it so personally for the past few decades. A psychologist named philip tat. Lock has studied the behaviors that lead to better forecasting being very precise predictions constantly. Checking to see if your forecasts or proving true and updating your forecast if they are not true all of these make you a better forecaster. But tim says if he had to summarize. All of this research on a bumper sticker. Full cost is better when they recognized. They might be wrong and they are asking themselves. What am i missing. What perspective having tie considered. Who haven't i talked to that sort of almost paranoid suspicion that you might have messed up. And the willingness to change your mind that leads to much better forecasting you know it sounds so obvious. Just be able to change your mind and yet in practice. People really struggle to change their minds especially about their deeply held beliefs. That irving fisher could not change his mind and john maynard. Keynes could ended up making all the difference in how they lived the rest of their lives a few months after the second world war at fissuring canes both died fisher was alone and nearly bankrupt hitting bailed out by his millionaire sister-in-law and he'd completely lost his reputation as a result of his failed forecast. It's such a tragic end to a great career. Canes died a millionaire the most famous and celebrated economists on the planet and there is a quote that sometimes gets attributed to canes that. Tim also likes to remember him by. He probably never said it but he lifted which is when the facts change. I change my

Can't block the sale, but all all the conversations that I had about And one not necessarily dropping a seat of hint. To other nations out there. But all the discussions that I've had over the years of wealth of Zavod over the years about true sovereignty would have to include. Defensive Our borders meaning. The ability to form something beyond a police department. Right. So. Anyway that's.

NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week
'Remington's nightmare will come true': Gun control advocates savor Connecticut court victory
"So who is responsible for mass shooting in the United States? Could that list include the gun manufacturer, a court has been grappling with that question? And yesterday, the state supreme court in Connecticut ruled that families of those killed at the sandy hook elementary school in two thousand twelve they can move forward with a lawsuit against the gun manufacturer Remington one of Rimington's assault style. Firearms was used by the gunman in the massacre that happened in Newtown, Connecticut, left twenty children dead six educators as well. Ian, Haug -ly lost his six-year-old son Dylan in that attack. He is part of this lawsuit. Any spoke after the judge's decision. Came down are excited ruling. I wish it was never here. But what we've said from the outset is all we want is Dane Uncalled cool. for the low to be upheld Jerry to decide. Okay davis. Donovan is reporter for member station. W S H U and has been following this case Davis, thanks for being here. Thank you, David. So exactly what these families are are hoping to sue Remington four. How would this legal casework? Right. So they started this law suit as a wrongful death lawsuit against Remington because as he said Remington makes the bushmaster air fifteen style rifle that was used in the shooting, and what they what they're really interested in is a part of this. It's called wrongful marketing, so the family's attorneys pointed to some ads from Remington the showed the rifle with a slogan that said consider your man card re issued or adds that show alone gunman on a battlefield, and they say also Remington marketed this directly toward young people. They say the basically get product placement in in violent first person shooter video games, like call of duty. Okay. So the supreme court seemed I mean convinced by by some of the arguments here and follows a lot of battles and lower courts. It was just listening to that father there. It's how how would you ever be excited about something like this? But but are they feeling like at least there's a path forward? Now. Right yet A are. And you know, that's what they've said. Essentially is they want gun companies like Remington to be able to be held accountable. Originally, lower court struck down because of two thousand five federal law that said, you know, gun manufacturers aren't responsible aren't liable for shootings that are committed with with their guns. Another one of the parents on the lawsuit is is David Wheeler and his son. Ben Wheeler was one of the children who died in the shooting. And here's here's what he had to say. There is a reason this particular consumer product is the one that is used by people who want to inflict the most damage that reason very likely partially resides at the feet of the manufacturers in their advertising. Marketing policies, and then another family member named Bill Sherlock whose wife was a psychologist at sandy hook. He said he expects to spend the rest of his life on this avenue in in one way, shape or form. So it sounds like this case might have real implications. Not just for Remington. But but other again gun manufacturers as well. In in terms of how they they market their products to people, right? So I obviously it establishes a precedent. It opens up the possibility that gun manufacturers could be sued and other state courts after shootings. But also if and when this goes to court now attorneys can get discovery. And that means they can get Rimington's documents memos emails having to do with marketing. And then they might get a clear picture of what goes on behind the scenes at gun companies when they're deciding how to market the guns, and that's what the nine families in the one survivor involved in this lawsuit have said, they really wanna see.

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Rachel Martin in Washington DC, the company that makes the semiautomatic weapon used in the sandy hook massacre may now be held legally responsible. The Connecticut supreme court ruled that families of those killed at the sandy hook elementary school in two twenty twelve can now move forward with a lawsuit against the gun maker Remington the suit claims that Rimington's marketing campaigns violated Connecticut's consumer protection law Davis. Donovan is a reporter from member station. W S H U has been following the case and joins us. Now. Davis. Can you just start by explaining the substance of this lawsuit? That was brought by sandy hook families. Right. Right. So this regionally started as a wrongful death lawsuit brought by nine families and one survivor the shooting in two thousand fourteen against Remington because Remington as you said makes the bushmaster AR fifteen style rifle when when they originally brought the lawsuit. They also actually brought. It against the gun shop to where the shooter bought the bushmaster and originally a lower court had struck this down because of a two thousand five federal law that said, you know, gun manufacturers, like Remington aren't responsible aren't liable for shootings that are committed with their guns. But what the families are most interested in is a part of this. It's called wrong for marketing. So the family's attorneys point to some ads from Remington that show the rifle with the slogan that says consider your man card re issued or ads that show a lone gunman on an empty battlefield. And they also say Remington marketed the bushmaster directly toward young people. They basically get product placement violent first-person shooter video games like call of duty. So essentially, that's that's sort of loophole, right? Because the the so-called shield laws that protect the gun manufacturers. Those are quite strict. Right, right. Yes. And Remington argument has largely been that they're protected under these laws. How are the families reacting to this? Well, the they've largely said what they want is for companies like Remington to be held accountable. They've said that you know, they want to have their day in court. David Wheeler is one of the parents on the lawsuit his his son. Ben Wheeler was one of the children who died in the shooting. And here's what he had to say. There is a reason this particular consumer product is the one that is used by people who want to inflict the most damage that reason very likely partially resides at the feet of the manufacturers in their advertising marketing policies, and then another family member named Bill Sherlock whose wife was a school psychologist at sandy hook. He said he expects to spend the rest of his life on this in one way, shape or form. And he says right now that means he wants to see what went on inside Remington with their marketing so clearly Remington disagrees with that. They don't believe that because they make this weapon that they're to be held responsible. But have they been given have they given any specific response to the judge's ruling. Right. They didn't have much to say yesterday beyond that they had no comment. They said they'll have no comment for the foreseeable future. They've largely stuck to their position that they're protected under the law. You can look at the reaction from some of the gun from some firearm trade groups, and you can kind of see what the reaction from the industry has been NRA TV, basically said this could lead to more lawsuits, that's the media wing of the IRA. And that for that reason, they didn't like it. And then there's a group called the national shooting sports foundation. Which is a major firearms trade group, factually based in Newtown, Connecticut, and they said, they think this is an overly broad decision that could set a dangerous precedent. But just briefly I mean, could it are there other lawsuits that could arise as a result of this? Ruling it could it opens up the possibility of gun manufacturers could be sued and other state courts after the shooting. So this is now getting sent back to Connecticut state court. So this sort of. Says that the federal law doesn't apply in state courts. And it also gives attorneys the opportunity to get Remington documents like memo's communications emails having to do with marketing. And then they might be able to see what was going on behind the scenes when these guns are being marketed Davis. Donovan a with W S H you thanks so much. You're welcome..
