"You know To enjoy what you do. So i think those are things. I wish that people with me think more about. I mean people definitely do. It's just that it's not something that we talk about with day-to-day basis. And we should talk about it more. I i totally agree with this. I think especially right now. A lot of people like me. You're kind of stuck in your home and The year has happened to you In some regard you kind of feel like have have kind of Swept your feet out from under you and it's very easy to focus on the manusha When this happens right it's why we can work until seven. Pm at night and check our email for the remaining time that we're awake that's the minutiae and we're not paying attention to your point We're not paying attention to our operating system and certainly that is the kind of thing that can wear away at that. Drive at the colonel That you mentioned and so it does make sense to take a step back and remember and unlike computers we are. All of these systems are are deeply integrated with with each other So the the things that are happening at the edges actually affect things that are happening at the core and vice versa So i think we do have to take a step back and say okay. What am i forgetting to take care of that. Especially at that firm where layer. I think that is so often forgotten. Especially when we're going through stressful periods.

"This problem in a few steps. So i hope that you can follow along with me. There's a loose logical team so where to start is that most developers are familiar with strategy games. And they think that that strategy. But you're kind of being sold a bill of goods there because strategy gains the kind of offer you infinite runs of the final game. There's a start in end And you can run them over and over again to get better and veteran ever a strategy in life gives you one run of an infinite misinformation outnumbers information in the rules a constantly in flux way strategy games. Don't change almost perfect information. So we very very poorly prepared and and by the way strategy games. This is an analogy for Should be like statelessness. We'd like to view things like we've been disability. Life doesn't have any of that. So it's a very very difficult thing to transition to and i think one of the reasons is important. Is that realizing that when you study highly productive engineers or her top engineers. It's not so much the output that the the like You know actually have a quote from somebody. Google who talk about sunday yelm wet. Jeff dean individuals attributed contributors in google. They actually are not that more productive than a swat three like a junior engineer. Google the insight is that the really applied to productivity to things that matter right and it's about choosing problems more than being a code wizard That just blows through one hundred hundred times more tickets than other people. It's not know you're out you're you're probably unit at output is not your tickets and we were trained to do that because that's how we're incentivizing managed but Really it's picking important problems. So strategy by definition strategy is the problem of choosing province. Better he answers. What should we be doing. Strategy defines where to play in how to win. So that's that's kind of where i want to set the set the the level like we are not used to play this. The rules are very different in and we are so used to solving problems that we are not good at all at choosing problems. And so so i think the four tools that we need to tackle that and this is not my definition is actually something that comes from a bunch of people study strategies so i kinda just rephrasing what you need a mental model prison reality. So where you your. Competitors in the larger technological landscape are you need a vision of the future where you want to go so where you are. We go eat a plan from getting from here to there. And then you need a policy for choosing what to do and what not to do With a clearer understanding trade-offs. So that's that's kind of like the four part breakdown a strategy. You can try to make that two things that you can actually do to execute that semi sense. Yeah can we go back through those four things. just just in straight list. Yeah the simple. The easiest one is a mental model of president. Reality like are you looking around you and having a clear view of where you are were you. Competitors are in we're the larger sending multiple landscape is going. Is that too much. Thanks so much for listening to today's episode of developer t the first part of my interview with six.

"Feel like mind. Filled with just things that are happening outside of work. And you pause and you think about that for a moment and you're like, that's True right and. What you said again, I could not agree more as like our responsibility as leaders then becomes how do I make that part? That is your work part. you know not contribute to even more of it. How can I make sure that you know any bad parts fine whether it's in the type of work you do where whether it's in the support, the flexibility, the Games, the social events that connections like, and that's just harder to do in this environment. It just stakes a lot more effort but that is the best that we can do. That is the best thing and just I don't think you can over communicate enough to your team members that you if they need anything where there. and you know you just keep reminding. You know another funny example of this one of our really strong developers in one on one asked me and I could clearly sense that the person's going through a burn out rate. and. We were just talking about that and he's like. Is it. Okay. If I you know set my hours from like ten to five for a couple of weeks. Are you kidding me. I I don't really get about the hours or number of hours and things like that like it was just such A. was just I'm like does isn't that obvious like that should be known like that? That's fine and You know after five nobody is you're GONNA be on anyway or you're putting an extra time or whatever, and the thing he said to me was. At? No, I knew that but it also helps to hear you say that. Because here I am thinking like you know if I really con- my hours. That's. Eight hours and you know I'm really feeling a little stressed out and I want to get into habits of more separation and I want to try schedule out. Because what he found was he was putting in the average burgers really busy work. You like sitting in front of a desk because you feel guilty about not having put in enough hours and honestly that just complicates problem more right right on and probably doesn't produce anything new value either it doesn't. It totally doesn't. and. So again as managers and leaders, even though you think and that was a big moment for me to like I thought this was understood you. But it still helps for your team to hear you. Say What's important you and here you. Just, care for them on a personal level. Thank you again to rob's car for joining me in today's episode, and in the next episode of developer, not we will continue talking about all of these. Incredibly important. Leadership Principles of being honest and open with your team. In the next episode, the second part of my interview with routes.

"At the detention center. and. It was in the middle of a blizzard. It was very cold outside and I hate the cold growing because you're a Texas girl right I know like anything under seventy I'm like, where is my partner and Ferber? Fake Ferber Tom. So the guard he calls me and he said Hey I know that you've been having family stay at your house because you know I lived right across the street I was familiar with the guards and they knew who I was. By this point he said there's a young woman who just won her asylum case and she's being released today her family lives in a completely different states she has no money. She has no cell phone. She has no way to get to the bus station. What do you think about coming picking her up and letting her stay at your house and you know I Couldn't make an excuse. What was I going to say like traffic was too bad like I'm looking at the detention center it's a five minute walk. So I said sure and I walked over didn't know what I was doing but I walked into the lobby and I I found her I introduced myself and and the only way that I could really explain it was you know I told her it's cold outside I. Have a coat in my house for you. Do you want it like Spanish was very rusty and I only could get out a few words and she said, yes, you know she literally had no other. Option because when you're released from the detention center, you can't say, Oh, wait a minute. It's in the middle of a blizzard. Can I stay for a couple more days? So she had no other choice she had to leave, and so she we walk over to the apartment and found a coat for her and we called her family and started making arrangements for them to get her a bus ticket and then that night I don't remember what we had. Maybe we had soup but she got a bus ticket her family purchased the bus ticket in the following day I drove down to the Greyhound bus station we. Packed a bag of snacks for her gave her a pillow and she was on her way and I. I'll never forget as we were walking out of the apartment taught the CASA and headed to the bus station. She saw the United States flag flowing in a blowing in the wind, and it was right above the balcony of the apartment insurance in she stopped and she stared and she's just gas in she was just so in awe that she had made it to the United States safe she could feel comfortable again in not continually worried about being attacked from the situation that she was fleeing from and she said. Do you mind taking a picture of me and under the flag and I said, of course, you know. So we did a little photo shoot and it was cute because the coat that I had given her was really big. She was very petite. I am not petite and so she wanted to take off the coats and that she looked cute pictures and the sweater that I had given her. This is funny I haven't thought about this in a while the sweater that I gave her was the smallest sweater that I had and it was my date night so. I'm still seeing that I was single back then, and so it was like the sweater that I wore when I wanted to Q. on a day. So I gave it to her in it was Maroon and with lace on it, and I still have the picture never in a million years thinking a few years. Later, we would have a full blown post release support program for folks like floor who were being released from detention, and as of last week we have hosted three, thousand, one, hundred and eleven. Immigrants from seventy seven countries. That's over two thirds of the world's country. Some Mazel have passed under cassidy posits amazing.

"So I lived at the pause at the very beginning years we were in a one bedroom apartment for about four years until we saved up enough money to be able to move into an actual home, and then we have now a house with guest bedrooms and then bedrooms for us to live in who lived there as well do. You live there now right now, I do not unfortunately a year ago. My brother was diagnosed with stage four cancer. Okay and he lived at that time about an hour away from where the cost of was so I moved out and I'm right in the middle of where the cost is the cost in I'm in the middle and then my brother so she can do both. Yeah. Yeah that's good. That's good. Okay. So I don't want to sound ignorant here. Sarah. So please help me out. Telling me is that for four years you lived in a one bedroom apartment and you opened up your doors to strangers and said, I don't sleep on the couch I mean here's the fridge. Here's what did that look like yet that's what happened. I had this idea get this apartment and then I just wait I'm like waiting for that first family to drive in and it took a couple of months and what do you mean? Like you're passing out brochures or how they know about you. I was passing up Oh sure as I was networking with other nonprofit organizations in Denver that worked alongside immigrants in the immigrant community, and so finally one day like two months later after. Opened up and ready to go I get a referral from hyper who works at the American Friends Service Committee and there are a bunch of quakers town that are doing great stuff and she said Hey I spoke with a family who's driving in from Oklahoma. It's a mom and her four kids. They're here to visit their father who's been detained they don't have money for a hotel they have no money for food. They barely had enough money to put gas in their car to come visit their dad this thing that this custody pas saying like, are you still doing it I was like, of course, I'd still doing it. I haven't even had one family yet of course, still doing it and she can give them your number of -solutely. So the mom called me I gave her directions she arrive and they walk in and I'll never forget this. They're tired and weary from a long journey and four kids in a car for that long OAF schoups either down to that. And they unload all their stuff I told them hey, take two bedroom. There's my bed only had one bed. Take the bed I'll sleep on the couch will figure this out and then we started making dinner together and we were having soup and it wasn't anything fancy I mean it was a canned soup that I opened up and heated up on the stove and the kids scarfed down and we're asking for seconds like within minutes of eating their first bowl and I was thinking This is like not even tasty to me. It's very bland and doesn't taste why do they like it so much but I wasn't going to ask so I gave them another bowl of soup the kids went to bed, and later on that night, the mother was telling me that when her husband was detained, he was the main income provider for the family. So they ended up being evicted from their home because they couldn't afford their payment and they were living in an abandoned home on the outskirts of town and they had no running water they had no electricity and so when they ate soup in their home, it was literally eating it out of a can it was not warm. It was. Cold and so when they had this opportunity to just have a bowl of soup that was warmed up, it tasted.

"At south by our immigration policies, there was something in my gut that was like this is not okay I don't know why it's not okay but I just know this is not the right way to treat people and when I came back from that trip I had this moment where I knew my life was going to change I didn't know how and I didn't want it to change either I was very, very, very happy in my perfect little life in Colorado Springs and I knew if I followed that calling of okay something's going to change that it would be drastically different. But I couldn't escape it and a couple of years. After that trip I ended up moving to Denver there's an immigrant detention center in the city and just sort of sat here and waited for further clarity in what I was supposed to do. It was a very interesting time. Wow. My okay. So have questions you go down to the border and Arizona what city Arizona did y'all go over to the border and it was Douglas Arizona which is right across the border from Agua create the Mexico Okay Gotcha. So you go down on this trip for your free trip to Mexico which makes me laugh so much there that you're like I'll go like okay I'll pretend to care what did you see there that made The trip more than just a free trip to Mexico I saw complete strangers turn into my family and let me explain what I mean by that. There was one particular evening in Mexico. So are group's spent half the time in Mexico and then half the time on the US side of the border there was one evening on the Mexico side of the border where our group had dinner at a shelter for men who had just been deported from the United States to Mexico. And I sat next to a young father whose name is Augustine. And Augustine began telling me his story of being deported. He told me that he was brought to the United States as a young child and when he was sixteen years old, he asked his parents for his birth certificate. So he could get a driver's license and it was at that age that his parents told him he was an undocumented immigrants brought to the country without papers and he would not be able to apply for A. Driver's license. So Augustine the following years you know he graduated from high school he started his own construction company. He met a US citizen woman he fell in love they got married. They had children he was on his way to school one day to pick up his two young boys and in a school zone we all know we're not supposed to speed right I've done it not once but twice, and that was a hefty fine. But for Augustine speeding in a school zone could have meant him being pulled over being found to be undocumented and then deported. So for Augustine, he drove under the speed limit in a school zone and just as he was about to get to the school parking lot he saw a police officer at turn on his car lights and pull him over. So he pulled over and the police officer said, do you know why? I pulled? You over and Augustine had no idea. He said, no I don't. He knew he wasn't speeding and the police officer said you were driving under the speed limit and that's why I pulled you over today they found out he was undocumented they put him in an immigrant detention center where he was held for over half a year separated from his wife who was pregnant and his two young boys and finally ended up losing his case. And he was deported to Mexico, and that's where I met him in that shelter for men who had just been deported and I remember as he was telling me the story and you could see in his eyes, the yearning to be reunited with his family. He had never even held his newborn baby daughter because his wife gave birth when he was in the detention center and as he was telling me this terribly disheartening time of. His Life I saw his face more and all of a sudden I saw my father and I remember thinking if this was my father who had just been separated from his wife and his three children is this how I would want him to be treated and the answer was a resounding. No. So as a follower of Jesus, I love the Lord, my God with all my heart, my soul and my mind and I love my. Neighbor as I love myself, and if I love myself.

"Some research has shown that accountability can have a profound impact on your ability to follow through with a commitment what exactly does it mean to have accountability and how can we bill cultures that support accountability while also retaining empathy. My name is Jonathan Katrina listening to develop pretty my goal in the Oh stop driven developers like you find clarity perspective and purpose in their careers what exactly does it mean to have accountable woody at the most basic level accountability is about letting another person no whatever your commitment is ever the measurement is measurement is an important word in that the you want to stay accountable to it provides some kind of abs observable access to the thing that you committed to and whether or not your following through on that commitment and the content most of a company culture you might make a commitment to a timeline or maybe set of particular behaviors maybe you are committed to providing more feedback on some code From from your peers whatever your commitment is at the most basic level having accountability means someone else either on your team or your manager or maybe somebody entirely off of your team has some visibility into what you're doing and what you said you would do but effective accountability goes beyond just observability and visibility into those measurements. Effective accountability includes some kind of reckoning event and when we say reckoning it sounds scary and often unfortunately accountability ends up feeling scary too because when we are held accountable it's very clear what the gap is between what we did and what we said we would do and this is one of the reasons it can be quite effective when we can clearly see the gap between what we said we would do and what we actually did we have some more questions to answer what exactly caused us to have that gap this can be scary because people don't like to not follow through with commitments just at a psychological level but we also can add to that fear in a work environment by hinging promotion off of whether or not you met the things that you said you were going to meet the things you committed to so how can we create effective accountability systems. We've already talked about some of it One is the observability aspect. The second is the reckoning moment or that meeting where you talk with that person who's holding you accountable can you talk about you know you kind of have post mortem of where you are so far on that measurement of accountability but there's more to it than that how can we create accountable cultures that are also supporting people and are beacons of empathy for the people who are the members of those cultures. That's what we're going to talk about right after we talk about.

"So thank you so much. Sarah Jackson and keep doing what you're doing. Yes. Our that was awesome. Thank you. Yeah. I mean that's it really is dedicated to her, and other groomers because that's her comment is what made us want to do the show today. So man, where do we start being a dog groomer? While what a life. It's very, very tough. I mean, Siamese you life. It's uneasy life being a dog groomer because first of all, it's something that most people would not choose to do. I think in less. You really, really have it in you. To be a dog groomer, which we have obviously being that we've been doing it for so long. I don't know how you got. It obviously got into it. Threw me. But I'm sure you'll agree. Like, once you start doing it. It's kind of like, man, I don't wanna do anything else, like I really love the dogs, I love being around animals, and helping them I think that's the main reason why most dog owners get into it. Yeah. For me it, you know, obviously I was a little different for me at first because, you know you're my dad's. So I loved like hanging out with you all day that was cool. And, you know, I stepped away a couple of times to try to go for the, you know, I guess you can call them more normal jobs, because you do have to be a little bit crazy to be a dog groomer, but I hated nine to five. I'm a clock watcher, you know, and I love dogs. So it's like no matter how many times, I tried to step away from this business. I always found myself just coming back to it because it's not a nine to five and you get to be with dogs all day, doesn't obviously dog grooming doesn't come without its many, many challenges. But I don't know. You're totally right. You just kinda drawn to it. Once you start it. Yeah. There's no other job like it really. Yep. It's true. I mean, I've even tried to bow out of it, you know, in the beginning because I was like, man, I don't know if I see myself doing this long term and in the beginning, I was kind of doing it on the side and still contemplating, whether I should keep my job. And or do dog grooming full-time, but after a while as I got better at it I was kinda, like, well, wait a minute. I can groom dog. I was grooming out of the house at the time. I can groom a dog in an hour, two hours and I just made fifty bucks like nobody's paying me that kind of money for an hour or two. So maybe I will do this, and you start doing the math, and you start going well do two dogs a day, and I'll do three dogs a day, and you really start to fall into it. And I think what's happening nowadays is a lot of people with YouTube and everything a lot of people are actually doing the do it yourself stuff, and they're finding out that they can get good at it, too. And I think more and more people because of YouTube are going. To be choosing dog grooming, as a as a career and I really hope they do you know, it's also smart the way you want about, like, what you just said..

"I'm sure that beer had nothing to do with that, too. Now. Absolutely. You you're, you're very, very aware. It was vodka an electronic cigarettes at that night. The electron IX illogic skews me have to plug this in. Yeah. Right. Has anybody have a USB port? I haven't to charge my cigarette. That's so funny, dude. Yeah. Even if you have a hammock where you wanna put one up, you gotta get lucky enough to find two trees that are like, you know, perfectly spaced. Yup. That's another good point about them. And then they try to do the whole thing where it's like they give the ones with the metal supports, and you don't need the trees. But again, how are you staying on that? It's like trying to take a nap while you're trying to surf it's just, you know, I don't get it comfortable. It's a summer thing. And again, all right. Be outside. It's gorgeous. But it's like you know. Just lay on the couch. Tot. Let's go outside and to make it really hard to hang out. I like the ones where like you sit in them. But the trees are too far apart. And when you sit in your basically just sitting on the ground like, because the hammock all the way to the grass. Exactly they're a bad idea. They're a bad idea. I don't think they ever should've been invented. I don't. Here's the thing. Don't get a hammock unless you're at what's that show. Naked afraid that the only time a ham it can be useful.

Yemen. I'm looking out the window right now. It's just a white sheet of snow. Yeah. Beautiful out New Jersey reminds me of that of the song by black Sabbath snow blind. I'm not I'm not I'm not too sure that it's actually about snow, but. And is about a white sheet of powder over. Yes. Exactly. You know, our lovely Ozzy Osbourne. Yeah. Snowballing love that guy. Dude. I was on YouTube recently checking on our channel have you seen a Maru and Hannah the cast you mean, the two cutest cats in the world. The ones on YouTube. Borrows like this like chubby little cat that he loves boxes and. This is watching them. Oh, yeah. He's so good for the camera to you could tell he knows when they're filming them. It's almost like the cat knows. Hey, you know, what we can make a lot of money. Post post this on YouTube. I like boxes what more. Do you need? You know, exactly. It's literally like he's probably saying like guys, listen, I'm a cat. I like jumping in and out of boxes and I ride a sled. Let's make some money doing this. Right. Lead. One was amazing. She's got like almost a million subscribers. And it's a cat. It's a it's a smart cat guys. I urge you please go on YouTube and checkout Maru the cat. It's I think it's a are. You hysterical. Right. Yeah. That is a door. Watch him for hours. I have watched him for hours. Funniest cat. Are the cutest thing in the world. I love that cat. Oh, yeah. He's such a sweetheart. They love him too. You can tell. Oh god. Yeah. I mean talk about pampering your pet. I mean, the both of them. I watched the video of them. And it was just the two of them and the owner just heading them for like twenty minutes as they're purring in squinting. And then Hannah's just starts licking my ruined. It's just it's just so funny to watch if you guys like videos, I love their addicting. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Cavaliers are some of the most addicting videos on the internet. Yeah. It's like riding a sled. He's in a hammock. I can't even get into a hammock ever tried. I have always fall out. Yeah. I wanna know thought that would be a good idea. They're not. It's not a good idea. I don't I don't know. I don't know any desperate. But even if you get into one could you imagine fall asleep and one and then like, you know, waking up your back is just Roach. You look like the letter c walking around because you know, you're spend too much time in a hammock. Here's the thing with him, basically, if you're lucky enough to even get in one and fall asleep. Why would you want to sleep in something at any? That's like getting into a bed that any moment can just break. And you know, it though because like if you fall asleep and a hammock you're waking up with your face in the dirt. It's just guaranteed. Eventually you just flip over. Yeah. I'm not a fan of having to balance while I'm trying to relax. It's hard to fall asleep that way exactly I don't wanna have to act like Indiana Jones while I'm trying to take a nap. Somebody could cut the one end at any moment. It's like trying to fall asleep while you're on the treadmill. Yeah. Exactly trying to fall asleep while you're taking a job one time. I was at a party, and that this is true story. I was at a party, and I was like and they had a hammock and there was nowhere to sit. So I'm like, you know, what what's the worst that can happen? I'm just gonna sit on and my legs are still on the ground. So no problem, dude. Within five minutes, I'm doing a backflip down the yard. There was a little hill. Now, I'm tumbling down a hill. And all we're trying to do was hang out. Yeah. I'm sure the beer had nothing to do with that too. Now. Now, absolutely not you you're you're very very aware vodka and electronic cigarettes at that night. The electron. Logic skews me I have to plug this. Yeah. Right. Does anybody have a USB port? I have to charge. My cigarette. Oh my God. That's so funny, dude. Yeah. Even if you have a hammock or you wanna put one up, you gotta get lucky enough to find two trees that are like, you know, perfectly. Yup. That's another good point about them. And then they tried to do the whole thing where it's like, they give the ones with the metal supports, and you don't need the trees. But again, how are you staying on that trying to take a nap while you're trying to surf it's just you know, I don't get comfortable. It's a summer thing. And again, all right be outside. It's gorgeous. But it's like, you know. Just lay on the couch. Todd. Let's go outside and to make it really hard to hang out. I like the ones where like you sit in them, but the trees are too far apart. And when you sit in your basically just sitting on the ground like because goes all the way to the grass exactly there are a bad idea. They're a bad idea. I don't think they ever should have been invented. I don't get. Here's the thing. Don't get a hammock unless you're at that. What's that show naked and afraid that the only time a it can be useful? We gotta get off the ground because there's fire. Ants crawling. Okay. So we gotta get we gotta get off the ground. That then I understand. That I get that back yard in Clark, New Jersey, get rid of the hammocks. We don't need it. You know? There's no fire. Ants. This. Why love doing the show with you, man? It's just one. Mentioned grooming yet. I know that's the thing. This is rooming show groomer humor. But we're hammocks the fire. But yeah, that's the beauty of having your own radio show, which we're very grateful for by the way. Yeah. But let's get to our topic before we even get to that. I want to give a special shout out to Sarah Jackson, who is a ten year veteran dog groomer, Sarah, this show is dedicated to you and groomers like you. Thank you so much for your comment that you left us on YouTube. If you want to check out Sarah's comment, go to our channel go to YouTube punching grooming by Rudy, and you could see all of our videos along with Sarah's really kind common. So thank you so much Sarah Jackson and keep doing what you're doing. Yeah. Sorry. That was awesome. Thank you. Yeah. I mean, that's it really is dedicated to her and other groomers because that's her comment is what made us want to do the show today. So you know, man, where do we start being a dog groomer? Wow. What a life. It's very very tough. I mean, Siamese you life. It's uneasy life being a dog groomer because first of all it's something that most people would not choose to do. I think unless you really really have it in you. To be a dog groomer, which we have obviously being that. We've been doing it for so long. I don't know how you got it. I obviously you've got into it threw me. But I'm sure you'll agree. Like once you start doing it. It's kind of like man, I don't wanna do anything else. Like, I really love the dogs. I love being around animals and helping them I think, that's the main reason why most dog groomers get into it. Yeah. For me, it, you know, obviously, I was a little different for me at first because you know, you're my dad's. So I loved like hanging out with you all day that was cool. And you know, I stepped away a couple of times to try to go for more. I guess you can call them more normal jobs because you do have to be a little bit crazy to be a dog groomer. But I hated nine to five I'm a clock watcher. You know, and I love dogs. So it's like no matter how many times I've tried to step away from this business. I always found myself just coming back to it. Because it's not a nine to five and you get to be with dogs all day doesn't obviously dog. Grooming doesn't come without its many many challenges. But I don't know you're totally right. You just kinda drawn to it. Once you start it. Yeah. There's no other job like it. Really? Yep. It's true. I mean, I've even tried to bow out of it. You know in the beginning because I was like man, I don't know if I see myself doing this long term and in the beginning, I was kind of doing it on the side and still contemplating whether I should keep my job or do dog, grooming fulltime. But after a while as I got better at it. I was kinda like, well, wait a minute. I can groom a dog grooming out of the house at the time. I can groom a dog in an hour two hours. And you know, I just made fifty bucks like nobody's paying me that kind of money for an hour or two. So maybe I will do this. And you start doing the math and you start going. Well, I'll do two dogs a day, and I'll do three dogs a day, and you really start to fall into it. And I think what's happening nowadays is a lot of people with YouTube and everything a lot of people are actually doing the do it yourself stuff. And they're finding out that they can get good at it too. And I think more and more people because of YouTube are going. To be choosing dog grooming as a as a career, and I really hope they do. It's also smart the way you went about it. Like what you just said you started off a lot of people quit because they don't do what you did where it's gotta start with one maybe two dogs. You can't just go in full force. And you're going to do six or seven dogs in one day when you first start out, you know, it's pretty smart decisions on your part because you probably would have given up if you try to just go dive right on. All right. I gotta do seven seven groupings in one day. Your brand new to it. There's no you wouldn't even have the time. There's not enough hours in the day. When you first start to do even five dogs in one. Now, you can fly throw them, but you know. That's a great point too. Because again, I think a lot of times it's underestimated the work the experience that you have to gain. It's not the kind of thing that you're gonna learn right away. And that's what I meant by. It's hard. It's a tough thing to learn. But with anything that's tough. There's always a great reward at the end. But again, it's just something like you said, you're gonna learn slowly you're gonna learn how to do one dog before you could do to, you know, and then onward because again, it's that type of profession where you really really have to know what you're doing. And that's why I really want to thank all of you professional dog groomers out there guys, especially people that have stuck with it for over five years and stuff like that. Because most people bounce most people bounce rate out of this profession because it's just a very very hard job to do without a doubt. Without a doubt. A lot of people fall off like you said they bounce the precision. That's required to do. This stuff is that's what gets me. These days when I was younger, and I would see you being nervous. And scared. I you know, I wouldn't understand until I started trying to do it myself a little bit. And nowadays man when I see you with a real nervous dog on the table. I just think right away. How are you gonna scissor that how're you supposed? Yeah. Scissors up to this dog's head who won't stop moving and keep your cool and not freak the dog out anymore than he's already freaked out. Like gosh, it really does take a special kind of precision and artistry really pull off even one grooming. You know, never mind an eight dog day. Sure. And in that moment that you know, you finally get the dogs attention you're able to get like a sniper to and you know, you have to worry about somebody walking through the door. And now, you're just restarting you're starting over again. And or a loud noise a truck going by whatever it's just really it's a very tedious tedious job. And again, the dogs are gonna feed off of your energy. So like, you said you really got to keep your cool. You gotta stay calm. You gotta be pay. Patient. You have two dogs are taking to it right away. You may have to put that dog away for a while. And take out another dog and retry it just to get like even something as simple as the bangs getting trimmed, especially on puppy. That's never had it done before or anything. So it's more than just grooming. It's a lot of emotion. It's a lot of a lot of fear. You don't want to hurt the dog..

Someone who calls themselves damn salvation is reacting to. We were talking before the break about Serena Williams, getting drug tested more than other female tennis players. And this person says, I doubt she gets tested more because of her skin color or birthplace. How many amazing athletes leader turned out to be doping plenty.

"Criticizing what she wears to work is where the true disrespect lies. So is there too much policing women's bodies in. Professional tennis. I think you know, I think it's just in life period of of how people are viewing women's bodies in it, and it shouldn't be that. I mean, when you look at someone like Serena, who is arguably the greatest player of all time in what she's done and how she promotes sport and even how her tire has changed over the years, you know, we should be applauding what she does to bring attention to to grab is of young players in particular who want to go into the sport. Her outfit at that particular event was was designed to to help her with a medical condition. Apparently they didn't know that beforehand. And if you've seen her play at Wimbledon, she even had on compression tights under her all white. So she's made adjustments in her. It's higher, but I think you know, coming back and competing for the first time it was important for her to make sure that she felt comfortable and could go out and play and still be a Representative of the sport. So I see here the you in a. Interview a little while ago said that it's it's impossible to push progress or boundaries as a woman and a special woman of color without without knocking down or knocking up against some construct. She said that there are always glass ceilings to break from females perspective and even more so from an African American perspective, an and I gather that you mean that that's especially that's also true or perhaps especially true in tennis. Well, of course there's true in tennis. I mean, when when we look at, you know, we'll go back to alpha Gibson who really was the first one to break the color barrier in in tennis for men or women back in the fifties and what she accomplished accomplishing the adversity that she had to deal with and and pave the road for Arthur Ashe to become who he became into accomplish, what he did in everyone that followed after them. You know, from Leslie Allen Zina, Garrison. Lori McNeil Chanda. Rubin Venus, Serena myself, and others. It's, it's still a small percentage of players that are out here. And every time we step on the court, you know, we, we are carrying the weight of an entire society of people in in trying to accomplish things. So when you're talking about breaking the glass ceilings, anytime that we are trying to accomplish our chief anything, we have to work twice as hard because we, we shine and everything that we do because all eyes are typically on us. Well, Katrina Adams president and CEO of the US Tennis Association joining us today from the US open. Thank you so very much for joining us. Thank you for having me. It was a really great to have you hope you guys have a great tournament there as well. All right. Well, Zina Garrison. Let me just get your quick response to what Katrina Adams just told us about sort of the inevitability of pushing up against traditions and barriers as a as a black tennis player, especially a black female tennis player. Yeah, I think Katrina was spot on. And I mean, it's just it's goes back to what I said earlier as you coming up in the sport as a black tennis player. You know that they're so obstacles and things that you're going to have to be to go against and you can't be afraid because if you are afraid in it's not a sport or sports, so you should not go into. And that's just part of the way that we evolved grown up. We've had mentors and people that have come before us at help us, you know, understand what we're going into an also not make it where. You feel like, you know, it's it's a negative because you can easily use as a negative and never get anywhere. I mean, the world today is a mixture of a lot of different things, but you know more than anything, you know, my like my mom, you saw, say, to me is you shouldn't.
