"salesman" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart

"Considering all the same things that he's considering are my best days behind me, what have I entrusted to some sort of legacy? How have I impacted people's lives? My family's life have made a mark in this world. Willie loman says, man can't go out the same way he came in. And that's something that I was considering, too, as an actor at this point in my career. What is my body of work where have I triumphed? Where have I failed? And when am I going to do about it at this point? Stage of my life and my career. So it spoke to me. A real deep personal reflection has happened within me as I considered the role. And that's what great art should do, it challenges us to reflect on our journey here and decide what our values are and act on them. And hopefully, in a positive way, because the cautionary tale is making sure you don't take those actions that ultimately could destroy you in a negative way. Let's talk about your role as Willy loman as a black man. Death of a salesman is set in 1949, smack in the middle of segregated America. Talk to me about exploring the American Dream through that lens. Well, you know, during the research on this was amazing. First, I thought of my father. Who, at 17, drafted, goes into the war, fights in Saipan in the Pacific theater, fighting fascism morale in the world, ultimately living in New Orleans, he returns to the fascism of America. And people always say that sometimes that's a strong word to use. But it has been. It is the American paradox that my father was as it was as much endangered in New Orleans when he returned from the war as he was on the beaches of Saipan. That his life wasn't valued,

"I'm Jonathan capehart, and welcome to capehart. Death of a salesman is Arthur Miller's classic drama, a tragedy really, about a man's tortured relationship with the American Dream, and its impact on his family and the people around him. Each revival of the classic has featured a white actor as the protagonist Willy loman, until now. Venerable actor Wendell pierce, best known for his role in the wire, brings his heft to the role, not only that, for the first time, the lowman family is black in this latest revival. In this conversation, first recorded for Washington Post live on October 24th, pierce talks about how death of a salesman can be seen in a whole new light with a black family without changing a word of Miller's classic. It is a depiction of the African American experience and humiliation of racism. The ugliness of the American paradox that you see how

Reaching the Finish Line With JD Vance

"Tim Ryan, the pretend moderate, calling for a release of half of all the federal inmates, play cut one O three. Thank you. You've made an ACLU commitment to reduce mass incarceration by 50% during your presidency. So speaking of that commitment, can you walk us through how you would go about doing it? Yeah. There's a lot we have to do. And it ties into a lot of other areas. But I would personally try to start with marijuana laws and getting marijuana off the schedule. Man, just open up our prisons. By the way, anyone who panders like that with the ACLU should not be a senator for the state of Ohio. Because ACLU are the same people that are cousins and sister organizations to people that want to legalize all drugs and then meanwhile, fentanyl is destroying the people of Ohio. People need to know about this. Yeah, that's exactly right, Charlotte, actually our team just identified a video of a couple of days ago where Tim Ryan said that he does want to abolish all limitations all legal penalties for drugs, including fentanyl, which, you know, it makes me realize Charlie like both at the individual trafficker level at the Mexican drug cartel level. And even at the level of China, which of course is manufacturing this fentanyl, the Democrats want to go easy on everybody that's causing this drug problem in the state of Ohio at all across the country. I just got to say Charlie sort of separate the substantive disagreements that I have with Tim Ryan. I watched that clip of him and I think to myself this guy after we beat him is going to have a great career as a used car salesman. There's just something about his voice or about his manner where, you know, it's like he's got a great 1994 Buick. It runs like new and he's going to give you a great deal on it. That's his entire ethic that's his entire attitude. And I think because of it, we're going to do very well in November.

Harry Cohn and Rita Hayworth's Tumultuous Relationship

"Harry Cohn at one point took all the credit for creating Rita Hayworth. He was obsessed with her. I don't blame him. She's my tippy top. She was Columbia's first sex goddess in the 40s. But she kept getting married. Her first husband was a 40 year old car salesman, then she married the director arson wells, then she married Ali Khan, who was the arid parent to a Muslim throne, then she married the singer dick James. Every time she got married, her box office started declining. It eroded to the point where it was shit. And her marriage to Khan, who was a huge Playboy huge womanizer, that kept her out of pictures for two years. And it really infuriated Harry Cohn and it really alienated her fans. So after Rita Hayworth returns to Hollywood in 51, Cohen wanted one of her pet projects, which was Joseph and his brethren, and until then, her husband dick haymes had come into Harry's office with a perfectly chiseled beard and demanded to be cast as Joseph. And instead, Harry Cohen decided to get back at Rita Hayworth because it was still madly in love with her and he was also pissed that he let Marilyn Monroe slip away, believe it or not, and I can believe this because I'm one of those people who's not super impressed by Malin's beauty. I'm just not like there's certain pictures I get it, and the voice I hear it. But when you take everything into account, she's not my favorite movie star or sex bomb, not at all. And I think she was like probably too big and too sloppy and fucked everybody just not my cup of tea. But Harry Cohn felt the same way he wasn't impressed by her beauty. He didn't renew her contract in 1940 to 6 month contract. And he said, you know what? I'll take the next pretty girl that walks in my office and wants to be a star. And he did just that. And that was Rita Hayworth.

How Stallone Created Rocky Balboa

"Way back in the early 70s. Stallone was an unknown actor trying to make it in New York, he had some minor success, even though soft porn movie, but he answered minus his actions in a movie called the lords of flatbush, fun movie, right? He was still broke. It didn't make big money. He wasn't paid a lot of money for that. And after the launch of flatbush, he figured it was time to maybe give it a shot in California. So he moves out there, and things were not going well for him out there at all, either. I mean, things got so bleak that he actually had to go out and sell his dog because it was either that or the poor thing wasn't going to eat. So one night he goes to see Muhammad Ali fight chuck wet. Chuck Webb got big old white fighter who was known as the Bayonne bleeder. Bayonne is a city in New Jersey, tuft city, the Bayonne bleeder on account of how a lot of fighters opened his face up and he bleed through a lot of his flights. He was that kind of guy with there's some fun in boxing. You hit him and they bleed. You know, a lot of scar tissue, what have you, but so he's watching shop raptor Muhammad Ali go at it? And he really saw something very extraordinary. He sees the Bayonne bleeder. He sees chuck wepner fight the greatest fighter who ever lived. And for one brief moment, this supposed stiff turned out to be extraordinary. Not only did he last the 15 rounds with Ali, but he not the champ down. I was a kid, you didn't see Muhammad go down much. I mean, there was a couple of the bigger fights or Frasier and stuff like that. But he didn't go down mom, especially not to an old stumble bump like chuck Webber. Stallone sees this and he thinks, you know what? This is a metaphor for life. And you can see where this is going and where the character rocky came from as a matter of fact. Years later, Trump wepner who went on to be a liquor and beer salesman sued Sylvester Sloan because he said, look, he took my life and made it into the smash movie. I want to be compensated. And they fought their lawyers for it. And finally, they would finally there was a settlement.

Is Trailblazer Rickie Fowler Headed for the LIV Tour?

"What we can definitely say without a doubt in our minds about Liv golf is that they are getting personalities, right? Remember when Ricky and I are the same age. Remember when Ricky came out 12 years ago and everybody wanted to talk about Ricky, that was it because he was the first guy that wasn't wearing khaki pants with triple pleats and cuffs and huge baggy shirts. He was the first guy that revolutionized kind of the look of the golfer. And he caught a lot of shit for it for years. And now what? Now what's everybody doing? Now what's everybody wearing when they go to the course outrageous looking bullshit, they've got khaki pants or not even seen anymore. No one wears khakis anymore, but Ricky started all that. People forget that Ricky was kind of a trailblazer 12 years ago on the modern golfer. And he's still relevant today. People, Ricky's not relevant, hadn't been relevant for years. Bullshit. Ricky's been pumas number one salesman until Bryson came along for 8 or 9 years. So I think it's as smart of the live tour to go after these guys that not only are they going to play great golf, their personalities and they're going to talk to the media and they're going to put content on social media. That's not going to get pulled down by they don't even say that their employer. They're 10.99. So they're pulling their shit down. It's not going to get pulled down or any of this dumb shit that's been happening on the PGA

Jack Ciattarelli Is in a Surprisingly Tight Race With Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy in New Jersey

"You, I love New Jersey. I know a lot of people are always kind of trashing on New Jersey. They have some of the toughest, proudest people in the country. They really do. They love their state and they're very defensive of it. New Jersey was supposed to be a cakewalk. Ten points, Murphy is gonna waltz to victory. And by the way, if Murphy ever thought him going on television and campaigning was a good idea, he should have pulled a Biden. As soon as I saw him on TV, I got animated to try to make sure he's never in leadership again. He's kind of got that. What did you say? Roger Keaton look, like Michael Keaton look, Michael Keaton used car salesman better call so hello, everybody, and I am now the governor of New Jersey. Thank you so much. Am I playing my role? Fake smile, thank you. Good to see you. And as a challenger, you have Jackson orelli, who just ran a grassroots campaign in the most no help whatsoever from the outside. Zero help whatsoever. And breaking right now as we are doing this show Republican Jack chitrali has just taken a 700 vote lead in the garden state. None of this was supposed to happen. Phil Murphy is calling up Tony Soprano. He's calling up Don Corona. He's calling up everyone he possibly can. And look, it's New Jersey. So if you want to talk about shenanigans corner cut and they perfected that entire thing. I don't say that as an insult to New Jersey. I'm just saying, buckle up. That's where that's where a lot of this stuff, unfortunately is centered. Now there's still a lot of votes left in Essex county. I'm sure Stacey Abrams is on her way up. But again, they probably, most of these ballots were probably on a ship off of the coast of Long Beach, California, and were never able to make it.

It puts the democrats in particularly vulnerable position at it and i mean i'm no strategist but i would say two things. Having worked on the last election one is honestly a bit of frustration a little bit honestly because they're the democrats learned how to win the election. Democrats won the election and they did so in a pretty strategic ray right they. They created a big base. they were great about messaging. They had like it or not ally learn how to like. Stick it to the other side by. It wasn't so much the exact issue it was about getting out of the issue and making the other side respond to the message. That your message and the minute. The democrats won the election. They stopped doing all that stuff. It's kind of like. Oh we won the election now. People are gonna come back to our senses and so whether or not you agree with the lincoln project. I realized a lot of people did the methods that groups like that were using was basically. Here's how you crap the narrative and make the other side respond to you and to forgot how to do that right all of a sudden. They're on their heels. Everything is response. Everything is playing defense all the time. Which is what's gotten democrats in trouble all the time and so again message.

I think about this in terms of public health and the engagement with community public health. Certainly in new york.

I would just say as somebody who studied this. There's a bigger ideology right. Which is that playing by the rules. Reinforces existing power strips. Right so the scary part here is.

I was watching the news and an anchor said this if you are watching this right now and you feel riddled with anxiety. You feel depressed or frustrated. You're not alone. I don't think that i've ever seen or heard an anchor say that before on the news. Which is the recognition that every single segment every single story that they are covering as their job to enlighten. The american people provide information on where we are and where we are headed is becoming so desperately troubling. Because you don't know where things are going and you don't really know how to provide calm and assurance to people let alone yourself. The reality is is that every day that you've been waking up in this country for the past several years we are beginning to understand what it is like to live in an oppressive state. What it is like to live in a country whose leader she can't trust who don't have your best interest at heart and i remember you know traveling around before covert when we were able to travel and feel good about traveling you know going into these countries where their governments were kind of in shambles but the country was beautiful and the people seem nice but they don't really have any opportunities and there wasn't a whole lot going on.

The Legend of Charles Hatfield: Rainmaker

"Since ancient. Times wanted to understand the weather but without science they had to invent creative ways to explain it so the greeks told stories about a pantheon of gods who used whether for their own ends. The book of genesis gave us the story of noah and the catastrophic flood but by the time the industrial age was in full swing. People wanted to do more than explain the weather. They wanted to control it. After all by the nineteenth century powers that once seemed impossible. Even supernatural becoming commonplace humankind had harnessed electric light in glass bulbs. Couldn't someone figure out how to control the rain. The first man to vie for the title of scientific rainmaker was james pollard. Espy an american meteorologist. He believed that he could set these massive forest fires that would heat the air up and create enough condensation to make rain. Unfortunately for him and the forest he obliterated his theory didn't work. Throughout the rest of the nineteenth century other would be rainmakers had similar non results and pretty soon people began to suspect that the whole concept of weather modification was just wishful thinking until the early twentieth century. When a self taught weather aficionado enter the picture with a bit more optimism. His name is charles hatfield as a young man. Charles is working a day job as a sewing machine salesman when he comes across these stories about rainmakers like james pollard. Espy and he's like these guys are pedaling something valuable more than hope. They're selling life. Charles spent his youth working on his father's ranch in california so he understands the importance of rain. Water crops means a healthy harvest which means enough food to eat. If you could find a way to prevent droughts there might never be another famine. Sure every attempt at actually doing it has been a pretty big failure but maybe charles can crack the code and if he can he can definitely make a pretty penny off the deal. So charles learns everything he can about meteorology atmospheric pressure humidity wind patterns. It's not a formal education. But he feels like he really has a knack for it and when he's done with his books. Charles starts experimenting. He climbs a windmill tower near his father's ranch and starts messing around with some chemicals to create his secret formula. I'm not exactly sure what these experiments are or what goes into his miraculous rain potion. Charles never tells anyone his secrets. But i do know that by nineteen for a twenty nine year. Old charles is ready to go public with his new technology. He plays some ads in the local paper calling himself. A moisture accelerator. His work isn't magic. He stresses he says quote. I do not make rain. That would be an absurd claim. I simply attract clouds and they do the

"And robin. Welcome to the creative. Thanks for taking the time to join us. Absolutely so i found out about you guys and your company bright blue gorilla when you guys wrote in and when i saw what you did i thought. Wow this is weird and it's cool. Which meant a kind of a no brainer for me has having you as But before we get into your work. I wanted to ask you. What did your parents do for work. And how did that end up. Shaping influencing the choices that you both made threat your lives and careers Interesting question. my dad was a salesman and His grandfather who came over from europe in the twenty s. He started business in new york and it was like stainless steel giant. Kettles that you cook bagels in or certain kinds of metal that they used on ships so my dad came out to california with my mom in the fifties and it was it was great because they were the first of the family to travel and get out of new york and leave tradition so my dad and mom really had a a pioneer spirit upcoming to a new place and setting up their lives here in los angeles. And i think that really influenced me that it's okay to go to new places and reinvent yourself and plus my dad. Being a salesman was a real people person. He's always been really good with people very friendly. Not afraid to talk to someone who doesn't know and That came in handy when i started booking our concert and film tours because you have to talk to a lot of people and you have to be persistent because you get a lot of knows along the way so i think i picked that up from my dad and my mom Mostly a homemaker but she was also into market research for a little while and she actually pretty good painter. So i think that influenced me plus. She always liked to wear bright colors.

And what impact that end up having on the choices that you've made with your life in your career fabulous question. Might i grew up in a lower middle class family. My dad was a salesman and he sold glass and this was in the time before shopping. Centers were big and he just landed a deal to put the glass windows and in a in the king of prussia shopping center outside of philadelphia and it was only shortly after that that he died and so We grew up in a family that my dad was someone who could care less about how much money was in his bank account but how much love was in his heart was the most important thing to him in the world and i became like my dad. It didn't ever matter to me. He was my idol. He was my. It was my teacher he was i my god he was everything looked too but he died with a mountain full of debt and one black suit and his closet because he gave to everybody else even didn't having it. My mom was a secretary in a synagogue and so She also contributed a little bit. But it was. She was the type of mom who wanted to be home to make cookies.

Networking is the foundational component of social media.

"So joe for those who might not follow the nhl super closely. Can you just give us a sense of what jon cooper has accomplished during his as a coach in the nhl. Definitely jon cooper is the longest tenured coach shell. He's on an eight th anniversary of his hiring on this week. The winningest coach in franchise history for the lightning. And i think he's highly regarded as one of the better coaches in the league and probably a candidate coach team. Canada at the next olympics are positions and olympics for the trump player so deadly highly regarded coach but up until this past season. He hasn't won the big one and that was kind of the big question surrounding it. And how would you describe his personality. Well he's a players go. She's a really fun personality. Like you quotes wedding crashers. Upper seventy six. No excuses public champion. You uses a champion. The only person you have to answer to when you go home at night is really yourself. The national media loves him because he is a great world this charismatic. You're going to get knocked down. There's no question people are going to push down. Because ultimately they want to see it fail if you think maybe teams on trips to like field of dreams when he was in earlier years coaching. He's all about the different sides and binding guys together on the ice and that if you get is connected as a group and the for each other and very process over outcome kind of guy and so you definitely has that charisma that makes them unique. I think the players like that. We'll show you recently. Wrote about how jon cooper has followed perhaps the most unconventional path of any stanley cup winning coach. So take us back to the late. Nineteen ninety s. What was john. Cooper's lifelike at that time he was living in a condo east lansing area couple remains but he was just trying to figure out where you wanted to be in his life. What he wanted to do for work. He was good ball. Charismatic lawyer but his heart wasn't in it always always wondering when is the fulfillment. When are you going to sit there and wake up every day and say. I can't wait to go do what i'm gonna do. He was defender district court in lansing michigan about a thousand dollars a month. You know we're going for indigent clients. He was working on. du is having divorces. You've got a two person law. Office him in a paralegal. He's still didn't know i guess. Were taken at that point. And you got in touch with the judge. Who worked with jon cooper back. Then what did he say about cooper skills in the courtroom and you just notice and how clients clients listen to prosecutors respected him i think is the kind of ability that transcends coaching the ability to persuade players to adopt your system or just believe the approach. So you know. He's he's a good salesman. He always says convincing players. Convincing a jury and i don't think he knew then that it would be kind of the key to him. Maybe starting coaching career. So how did jon cooper go from being this lowly paid lawyer and a former lacrosse player. Who had only played a year of club hockey in college to being high school hockey coach. Well the run in his son playful lansing catholic high school and they needed a coach and so he knew of john skills on the ice and new of his charisma and then he is asked to one day in the building. I saw the coach. would you be interested. He looks at me and goes. Dc the stack of resumes. I have he says. I'll tell you one thing you coach kids high school hockey team and i will take your resume from here. We put it here. Just this exactly. That was his first kind of foray into coaching hockey. Was nine thousand nine hundred nine hundred thousand lansing catholic cougars hockey team and that was seventeen. You actually talked to some of the players on that lansing catholic team. What did they tell you about jon. Cooper the high school coach. I think what's interesting knees. They remember the first meeting in the cafeteria where he's using himself to like twenty kids and parents and those us have just nervous as they were and are waiting to hear whereas the hockey background. Who did he coach before. Because one of the red wings was he part of this huge talk about law school in wall street and this guy another guys were in the nhl players. Even highly college players inducted himself would be anywhere high in coaching world. A reflection of guys play together. I think they'll be the first ones to tell you. None of them really on the track to make the national hockey league but they were such a joy to be around the competed their butts off just line. Who an awkward gesture. The of funny kid and team talked about like there was a hill just a mile from the school that the workouts outside the big hill. The he must've just saw he was driving around and he made us run up this hill with do bear calls and stuff. That is the source. I've ever been my life like. I could not long like off chris. Monrovia now works the red wings. Illitch family talked about how they had this practice where they had no on the ice and they're doing push ups and sit ups and kristin ross. Who served in the military students in afghanistan he goes. I went through the army for seven years. And i went through a lot of work out a lot of hellish days. Afghans dead. That's one of those days that i think back much. It's not as bad as back. And what else did you learn about his coaching philosophy back. Then you know like what were the things that were important to him that he really emphasized to the team. Making guys feel connected or part of it no matter if you were the best player on this team or like the thirteenth forward and i think jeff swan is appropriate examples. Like i wasn't the most natural coordinated like county out now who put me not aligned with the two players. Mike sack out with the most gifted athlete. That are high school in you. The team is better holding. Some of its part. They wanted them to play. Have have meaning and swan. Storing the biggest fools that season the most for player that year. So you know. He's told everyone the most improved player really halls like a special place for him. Something he takes lightly. It was a really really nice compliment. They talked about the hard hat that they gave out. After every win which was an all white instruction half that was something that the player of the game whether at block shot or a big hit or in ceremony the post game. We'll get this production. How they put their name and a sharpie but it was more of a. What did you do to help the team. Really recognizing layers who maybe didn't shop scores sheep but who are just dedicated themselves to helping the team. These success those are moments that came together that they remember forever and become an integral part of their story on a way to winning out like the championship. Well this sort of ragtag bunch of guys did win an unlikely state regional championship in almost mighty ducks kind of way and joe as you talks to all these guys who played for jon. Cooper what connections. Were you able to make between cooper the coach of the lansing catholic cougars and cooper the coach of the stanley. Cup champion tampa bay. Lightning guesswork me. Talking to guys. That new men who've now that he hasn't changed much in terms of his personality he had kind of style which coach's house you through professional level versus coaching. high school. Kids a lot of the same kind of tenants but he had then he still uses today. Kerry that floss with me all the way through the nhl in onto the honestly. It doesn't really change. Human beings are human beings and everybody needs to be motivated. It's just finding the right way to motivate. Rose stood up in my living room and watch the game and cheer tampa.

The History Of The Cola Wars

"In the late eighteen eighties. Pharmacist named john doc. Pemberton decided to get rich selling homemade cures and elixirs. We should note in spite of his nickname. Doc wasn't a traditional doctor. He hadn't trained in mainstream medical practice instead advocating for alternative treatments and remedies and he wasn't alone in his passions late nineteenth century doctors and patients. We're wild about drugs. And even pharmacists could get rich quick selling inert or sometimes dangerous products as cure all remedies before pemberton's time even something as benign as ketchup was marketed. As a treatment for diarrhea jaundice and rheumatism bayer pharmaceuticals pedaled heroin as a cough suppressant and a safer alternative to morphine and literal snake. Oil salesman claimed that rattlesnakes fluids could cure their gullible customers. It's no wonder that. Pemberton figured he could brew his own dubious remedy in make a fortune. His first hit product was called. French wine coca. It contains several ingredients that would raise eyebrows today but they were considered healthy at the time. Things like wine and coca leaves which contain cocaine. Pemberton claimed that french wine coca was an energy drink and a remedy for morphine addiction and the people loved it. Unsurprisingly the beverage sold well but it wasn't long before pemberton ran into an obstacle just months after french. Wine coca hit. The shelves at the end of eighteen eighty five fulton county georgia outlawed alcohol atlanta based dot. Pemberton had a new problem realizing he probably never strike it big with his mental tonic. Pemberton went back to the drawing board. He wanted to replicate french wine. Coca success but with a non alcoholic beverage. Luckily he had a new product in. Mind it too featured coca leaves but he added the kola nut a west african fruit pit. That's high in caffeine. The mixture of coca and cola gave customers a mild buzz and inspired the drinks name. Coca-cola the beverage sold modestly in its first year unfortunately. Pemberton wasn't particularly skilled with marketing. and distribution. so shortly before his death he sold the business to a fellow druggist with more business. Sense acer candler from their candler built a beverage empire through soda fountains in the nineteenth century. Chola manufacturers generally sold syrup to local businesses. This was more efficient because soda. Bottling technology was fairly new and not widespread yet. They're carbonated water was added to the syrup. So the coke was fresh and fizzy when it was served. Gamblers forward thinking mindset. Didn't stop there. He knew he could reach more customers if he didn't limit his avenues of distribution so in eighteen eighty nine. He sold bottling rights to a plant in chattanooga tennessee. Now customers didn't need to visit the nearest soda fountain for a glass of coca cola. They could buy it the corner shop and drink it at home then. Candler made another even bigger shakeup. He altered the coca cola recipe. We don't know all the changes candler made to the recipe. But we know one of his goals. He didn't want to sell cocaine to his customers and he had two reasons why first candler was very religious second and more importantly he was racist. Most soda fountains were segregated. So only white people could drink coca cola on tap but once he started selling bottled coke. Southern newspapers began printing rumors of quote negro cocaine fiends. In quote white supremacists suggested that the soda drove people of color to commit violent crimes including sexual assault hypocritically. Nobody expressed any concern. That cocaine might drive a white people to commit crimes and to be realistic. There probably wasn't enough cocaine in the beverage to spur consumers to violence although it's hard to say because it doesn't seem like anyone was tracking how much they were using in the recipe. Regardless candler was committed to eliminating the coke from coke.

How To Silence Your Saboteur with Remy Blumenfeld

"My guest. Today is remmy blumenfeld. Me is one of the world's leading us coaches in advisors. He's contributed more than fifty articles to forbes and has listed by the independent newspaper as one of the twenty most influential. Lgbtq people in the united kingdom. He's been featured the new york times the sunday times. Forbes and inc is clients are leaders from across the creative sector from film. Tv advertising publishing in gaining. Thanks so much for joining me today. Remmy ion is my pleasure. I am thrilled to have you here. We're gonna be talking about a subject. That number one i think is so important for business. Owners and founders but also so timely. I guess i i would say it's probably evergreen. You know it's probably always timely. But it is about that that savage that inner salvator that we have And i would really like to start with asking you to share. What what you think that saboteur is and how you see it affecting business owners yeah so the saboteur is a voice in your head and of course we are all made up of many different parts that may be the salesman that maybe the publicist that may be the shy retiring person with complex beings but when we have a conversation with ourselves in our head very often the part of ourselves that we're talking to in our head is not the most helpful part very often. The part of ourselves with communicating with is the saboteur. And the sabah. I i think it's helpful to think about this in terms of evolution you know. The saboteur is the voice in our head was designed to protect us and to be helpful to all survival by saying. Don't try that come up before and it didn't work And that's very helpful when you're going to be eaten by a barrel full down a precipice in primitive terms. It's very helpful to have a cautionary voice in your head that saying. Don't take that risk. Don't try that again. That could end in failure. You could eaten by a lion but these days you know when the risks were taking not life threatening risks for the huge majority that voice in our head. that staff from evolution is really unhelpful. Because it's it's a. It's a constantly questioning challenging. Tao ching voice the taps into environmental circumstances to remind us why whatever it is about to do could end up in bad trouble and and the bad trouble that it could end us up in. These days is really only failure. Failure as we know is necessary to success. Because if you don't fail dozens of times you won't succeed in my business. Before i went into coaching i was in. I was in tv entertainment. And you had to pitch a whole lot of ideas before you gotta yes. There was a saying that our industry sounds like yes. No no no no no no no no no no yes no no no no no no and you know the voice in your head would always be saying. Oh don't do that. Don't pitch that show put in that proposal. You could look foolish. You could fail. It could be rejected. Who are you to do this. And i think diane you're right that the voice is evergreen sadly but in these times off of stress and scarcity and on news waves being completely clogged with with negative messages. Al-sabah has a lot of material to work on. You know because it. It doesn't take much to derail you because you know. I thought i mean a very simple one is like don't do that. It's a recession. Who will want that. It's a recession and that immediately kind of short circuits so many things just thinking well the economic times a bad so the voice in my head. That saying don't do that. Whatever that might be launching new product lines. Start a business hire somebody expand. Whatever it is you might be thinking of doing when that voice in your head you're sabotage says don't try that those a recession on think you. Are you crazy. The other part of you the pop. That's perhaps a little bit more and daring is very easily put off. So maybe that's you know that's a helpful kind of overview of our savage basically the voice in your head that says. Don't you try that. you'll look foolish. Don't try that it won't work. Why are you even thinking of doing that. Who'd think you up to do it. That's the sabotage on. It sounds like the there are times when the saboteur sounds like the their reasoning is valid. Like what the example escaping. Don't you that. There's a recession right. So so it feels like it's we. Can vince ourselves saboteurs right. A hundred percent hundred percent and the and the sabah works on pre existing agreements. Which are out there in the world which it's part of a that you'll never gonna ditch your saboteur and i think it's perhaps even useful to to recognize that voice in your head has has a place it has a place and if you think of all the different parts of yourself as being you'll personal board of advisors than having one board member who saying don't try that as a recession. Don't try that it went. What don't do it again. You'll look foolish. That can be okay. Annoying let's no pretend it's not annoying tablet board member like that. It's annoying but it can be useful. I think the problem diameters for many of us alone in our heads with the board of one the board member of one that we have is the salvatore and until we labeled at bold member as the saboteur. Recognize that you know. She has a value but she's not driving us to the place where we want to go quickly or in daring courageous ambitious imaginative way initially realized that than we. Oh yes that's the truth. Well it's not. The truth is just one perspective. It's just one it's one perspective and you could even argue that it's a useful perspective but it it. It's the only perspective you become allies because all the conversations that you're having with yourself you'll sabotage in your head end up in feeling defeated and feeling like Thank goodness. I didn't try that because i would have looked foolish as though you see. I think the saboteur believes the failing and looking foolish are the worst possible things that could happen to you. And of course a part of you part of me believes that too because we've all had bad experiences with failing looking foolish and so when the saboteur voice in our head says that we listen whereas the reality is we should as a good chairman of our own board. Say thank you for your contribution. I will bear that in mind and then take some other input right. That's that's the way i look at it. Yeah yeah yeah definitely okay. So how does someone silence that saboteur question. And i'm afraid the answer is you cannot silence you'll sabah. Zabaleta was put that by evolution. Some people's loud too some people sabotage more frequent. However what you can do is put your saboteur in that place and i think the first thing you can do is just by recognizing it by recognizing the that voice in my head that i'm talking with all the time is very often my saboteur and when it creeps in need to recognize that that's that's the perspective but not the only respect. So that's one thing you know the very first thing but it's really important. Recognize the voice in my head is not me it's by sabato and then the second thing is maybe just to kind of put it in a box so i think of my subah diane like a like a still away on my ship right. So i'm the captain and the captain decides where we're going to go how we're gonna get the how it's going to be. Who's gonna come along for the ride and the saboteur is a stowaway who i don't really want on the ship. They are there any way and they are always undermining everyone on everything and it has a useful function but they are still away.

"He's the president and CEO of Cutter's Edge. Also the sponsor of life changers, So I'm so glad that you're with us. Today on this Christmas weekend, Christmas is over, but we're still you know, celebrating the Christmas spirit Right now. We've been talking about your lifestyle changes within families and how it's very important as maybe how you've been brought up. Uh, do you take the good And then throw out the bad and tried to, you know, do differently with your Children. And is it important where you put people even business wise? We say often you could be on the right bus, but you could be in the wrong seat. You're absolutely correct. Now. You know you have to put people in good positions and you know whether it's your Children. Whether it's your employees. You got to put him in the right spot to be successful Drive to thrive. Right? So you know where I have three kids, Each one is in a different position on what they do. Oh, I had my oldest daughter's been working for me for a long time. She works in the office. She's very technical. She does the payroll. She does the counting. She does the HR. She's not a social butterfly, so putting her in a position of sales. She wouldn't do very well but putting in a position to calculate to put numbers together to type up letters. She's extremely good. You know, She's extremely well my middle daughter. We brought her in to work for a little bit. And although she was good with the customer service side because she's very talkative, Um she loved animals. And so now she works for a veterinarian, and she very, very, very doing very good in there. Kevin is, you know he's he's got that laid back as we talked. You know, the first part, laid back personality about him, eh? So he's kinda good with both. He's very technical. He's got computer skills He's got Um, you know, you mean, you know, being a young kid today, you gotta have computer skills, but he's also very sociable, and he's also very serious. So, uh, come across very stern Go into both worlds. You go the boat for us. He He's like a chameleon. I would say he's like a command. He could changes colors when he needs to change them. So it's very good, but going back to what you're saying about putting employees to putting them in the right position. You know, we talked off here about be making mistake one time and push. For when I was with free delay route salesman to become a district manager, and he just wasn't good at he was. He was an excellent route salesman, probably one of the best awas, and when I put him in a leadership role, we had to teach other people to do what he did. Hey, failed miserably at it. It was just it was very hard on him. He just couldn't do it. He couldn't understand why everybody wasn't like him. And I think that's the hardest thing. You know. You know, Kevin and I have that conversation all the time because he gets See we have about 100 employees, so he gets to see you know all the different personalities and now we have to handle each personality. Different. So, Kevin, how do you see that from your young age and your impressionable, But you're also learning leadership skills. Um, what have you learned about putting people in the right seat on the bus? Um, like my dad's that obviously like everybody's different. Everyone has their own way of doing things and dreams, how they on how they could do their job, and you just don't want to put someone in a Uncomfortable situation or not, even like you did it purposely because you don't know you don't know what they can do and what they can do. So you gotta kind of, I guess, get to know them a little bit. And no some sort of what history what They know what to do and what not to do and is put him in a good situation where they can succeed and feel comfortable in the job they're doing and really strive from from that position. Now, sometimes as leaders we can see that a person might have a capability of something that they don't even see in themselves and They're scared to even try. How would you? How would you try to help that person? Maybe say, Listen, we want to give it a try and see. See what happens. I'll give him a little motivation. Let maybe a little speech and M and tell him Don't be afraid to do it like you can do it. You have C give you're capable of doing it. You can do it And don't hold yourself back because there's so many doors and you just have that one key. And if you have that one key, you can open up on many doors as you want and keep going through them. That's Kevin going that you just knocked me off my seat here, just the way you articulated back. That was that That was great. You go out there and teach that you know Kevin's mentoring Mike's son, who is a year younger to him, and he also comes in in the morning. And you know Kevin's taking that role of You know, directing teaching on seeing where he's comfortable what he's comfortable doing and not doing. You know, It's been a learning experience for Kevin tonight, because I you know, one of the first things I always say is, you know when you take a new leadership role, it's always best to set back the 1st 30 Day 60 days and see what your team could actually Diogo instead of coming in with a hammer and trying to change everything up front, and you don't know how people going to respond to that, and so Sometimes the first person you meet on a new workplace. You may think he's the best employee and then realized after 30 days that the guy that you thought was the worst employees actually the best deployed and the guy that you first met because they come across a pony or fake and they know how to, you know, cut to showcase some. They're good talkers..
