Interview with Brooke Schultz
"Creativity is more than just having talent. It's about making a choice to utilize whatever talent you do have. That's a lot easier to say than do sometimes because self doubt and insecurity can service considerable obstacles. It didn't start that way because as kids we created without such distractions sometimes I think we spend a lifetime trying to unlearn all that stinking thinking. For Brooke Schultz her love of photography is more than just about making memorable portrait's families but helping other photographers to leverage their desire to be creative person. Using her workshop center podcast heartful with Brooke. Celts, she does just that. This was a conversation that very much looked forward to as it provided a special moment of positivity during some very dark times. This is e body and ex and welcome back to the candidate frame. The KENDRA frame thriller Nice to have you Thank you so much for having me a buyer your next. Are you know Marshall is often about more leading a creative lifer leading fruit for photographic line, which is all about just being creative in your your podcast in a lot of what I picked up from you focuses on that as well. So I thought this might be fun time not just the learn about your work but just to have. A conversation about creativity. Let's do that as much as I wanNA learn about you in your work I think. Having a conversation like this, like this is always always good to have someone. Yes. Thank you. In one of the things Dow was kind of interesting was this idea of giving yourself permission to be creative. And having been a man I you know I always taken it from the male perspective because it's the only choice that Hap- But. It's interesting in terms of something that I heard in terms of what of your episodes speaking from a woman's perspective especially, a woman who is. A wife, a mother, and in terms of sometimes the guilt that some women feel who are under the circumstances about making the choice to be creative from the cells in in terms of seeing it as something that selfish. And thought that was really interesting and it's not something that I really have had an opportunity to really discuss specifically of touched on it. I. Think at least a couple of times on your podcast I thought that would be really interesting way of starting in the conversation so. Talk to me about that. Wow well, I'm curious to know. have. You ever experienced that like a guilt feeling for being creative or is it just like I'm creative and I need to kind of work through the creative process but not so much the gill in terms of other aspects of your life most of my guilt is been not doing mea. Not so much that I felt like I was depriving. The. People in my life something as a result of making the choice to be creative. No every you sharing that because I think it's speaks to what women currently experience in a cultural sense that to be a good wife mother or just women in general, you are expected to do it all do it all perfectly and don't let anyone see you sweat dining and Especially to be a quote unquote mother you're expected and it's kind of like this seeing that runs in the background I think of just give yourself entirely to your children and any time that you spend away is somehow. Demerits or like a is taking away something very valuable from them, and so that's been something that I've had to really consciously. Reprogram in my own belief system to believe that the creative impulse is a human impulse and regardless of our roles whether it's a mother grandmother, you don't professional creative person or just someone who enjoys taking pictures or whenever you're creative outlet might be that those impulses are human that any humans in your care whether it's children or otherwise are going to be benefited by that creative impulse in my watching you be creative. Did. You ever feel this before you were a parent or is something that seems they've. Become especially pronounced after every given birth to kids. I think it's definitely more after having kids kids are so needy. ME. Need you all the time and especially as. In my family and many women as a mother, you're the primary caregiver and so you're the one that it falls upon to fill those kids needs all the time and my kids are really little. They're seven, five, four and three months so. You know they they need me a lot and so walking that line and that tension and dance between how much they need me and what I need. Myself is a really interesting one to walk and I think all of us walk that one way or in creativity because we have other obligations besides just you know sitting around getting inspired making creative work you know. So it's attention that everyone can relate to but I think it's especially prevalent in mother had.

He didn't have a place to stay when he started business. He'd come up our house out of house. My daughter Lake sleep her bedroom and she goes to the couch and he he was sleeping in the van and You know we can come real good but this guy was vigorous coward. I had ever seen now. We good brands. I'm just telling you out on the street and stuff and then but he was good entertainer learn how they're going to change and he did what he had to make money in that you know. I guess that's mainly gay. But when I'm saying there's nobody out there legitimately bad that I know except you would be the one I would have. I don't know if I don't WanNa Care Baseball Bat or I think David here I don't know from from an L. digits hand to hand combat. I just know there's different levels of tough you you've got your you've got your guys. And like I think you've got referencing. Beaucoup was one of the baddest guys that was ever to business. I think I was called into the mold of a man. I was like a cockroach you know. Take the punishment of the business town. Dr Almost get paralyzed finish match. The Oh yeah that kind of tough. I want to go back to you just as far as you gift of. Gab and I know you guys grew up dirt poor and before your father passed away. What was he doing line of work? I'm just wondering where you're gift of Gab. Come problem with talking your way out of situations backing up. Would you had to do or just being in the woods in Tennessee and Texas? When I started talking on my trash you know people WanNa and where did that come from well? That's just the people that I that I grew up hanging around and that kind of stuff that I started spitting out so that was my style so he would get Gab. Coming from from being poor talking your way out of situations or having a back your situation up that is just like camera naturally to you because you also as far going into your bounty hunter days were able to really not manipulate people but talk them into. Hey man you need to give yourself up. You've always had to give to persuasion. That's right that's right and let me tell you that helped me more The wrestling talk and interviews and all that and like Memphis all live interview. You know that when you were down there live. It wasn't no delay in anything and you had to concentrate on what you're saying you know you couldn't use curse words or anything else. They cut YOU RIGHT OFF IN MEMPHIS. Lot of places have a delay you know when they clean it up all that but you know it was so easy to do to talk to these guys though because like Lance Russell would just feed you feed you own Brown with the and I mean they would let you talk hotel loans. You was carrying on a conversation the Gab that they was interesting listen do they get they get So into you talking that they just about be memorized listening to you and they'd say Oh my God what am I going to be now guy you know he does. And I know I love Canada. That was where I I really loved that up within Leyland and he would go to hard to come out and say yeah this your gut it can talk and taking Followed up relax into and And then I got into Bali hunting. You know that was the that was the wrestling plates. Such a big art my bounty UN's but people would seem the all year on TV and go out. And I had people come here living largely. Oh Yeah Docherty's man. Yeah Oh yeah baen going jail him. Okay when did you start well?.

"Months never happened and it wasn't because of that speech but if I did not tell the truth if I wasn't transparent. I didn't ask something of them. starbucks would not have transformed itself yeah and so leadership also is about having the confidence in your people to understand and being with with you. The other thing is I was very vulnerable in front of ten thousand people and I think leaders especially men have a hard time demonstrating inning vulnerability and I think it's a strength of character. Not a weakness and people come to come to you when you're vulnerable yeah I. I have two more but I know I'm reading right now. Yeah I agree. I have one. I have a bunch. I'm obsessed with it and so there and I'm talking for like the great young entrepreneurs when we do this podcast. That's my inspiration and they don't get to hear someone like you very often. You build an empire conglomerate and you build it through great people. How important a is people in an organization one and two if Howard Howard Schultz was twenty two at a B. School or just out of graduate you graduated from school and you're broke like a lot of our listeners. We all were broke right. What what advice would you give yourself or twenty two twenty three year old on how to impress someone a coward. If I want to get a job in your offices Seattle so so first off Alex I do not have a business degree. neither do I. I visited me three yeah so nice. Everything I've learned in a sense I learned learned growing up and and learn from others so what I've told my own kids. is first off. You have to find something that you really love and you can't fake and I got to be really curious about the world and put yourself selves in situations where you're uncomfortable. You're meeting. People were not part of your sphere of influence and be curious as possible about the world in terms so in coming into starbucks about interviewing for jobs when pressing me I'm not concerned about your resume. Away went to college. I want to know about your life. I want to know about your personal story. you know one of the questions. I I ask everyone. I've ever interviewed is tell me the book you're reading and I'm I'm not so sure they just want to know. I want to know more about you. I'm when I'm when I'm always looking for is people who are hungry people people who are willing to sacrifice for the company and every one of us is going to make a hiring mistake mistake and the hardest thing for an entrepreneur anyone one in business is to realize that you made the higher mistake because you convince yourself that you can change that person and more often than not you can't so one. One of the lessons of entrepreneurship in all aspects of business is if you're GONNA fail fail fast yeah and admit it and move on yeah and try not to make that that mistake again but but there isn't a business that I know of any business that is not skewed towards the values and behavior of people and the people must be aligned must be facing the same direction and everything about behavior matters and everyone everyone's is is on the leader and so live your life like the cameras on yeah. Did you have another question for you. Go last question Okay Alaska and maybe a short unbelievable. Oh you kidding me for your team. They're fantastic. We we love. We love our shows. We Love starbucks and homecoming for me so I'm happy to be here in a great mood Howard when you think about the early mid eighties thought about this dream that you had and by the way you didn't tell us that you had to convince Sherry to you. GotTa come with me honey to Seattle because there's something she's like. I'm not going to anyway. That's another conversation but when you thought about your performance you get your. Mba guys to right. Here's the three five seven-year performa you left something out and it was going into communities. African American Communities Hispanic communities like my community and for whatever reason to three or five dollar starbucks. Maybe wasn't in the plans a guy a six foot nine point guard comes into your office right. Magic Johnson says I can be your partner. You've never franchise at the point right. What about Magic's pitch right convinced you obviously it was a very successful hundred and twenty five stores then you bought back. My question is tell tell me about Magic's pitching what you thought. When you walk into your store sure so I had a mutual friend who said one day that that Magic Johnson wants to come to Seattle meet you so you mentioned the Michael. Jordan store said I'm absolutely worse you know so so Irvin Magic Johnson walks in and you know his personality he is a few yeah and and he had a genuine genuine concern for bringing quality premium products into underserved communities and he said I'm coming here to invite you to something I want to invite you to a movie theater owned in La and I said so we later we met magic. We had dinner We knew what he what he wanted to do. What the pitch was and he said I want to show you come to the movie theater so he was involved at the time. I don't remember the company Sony Anne Theater Okay so guber yeah so he took me there. and what I saw was the without question the fact that he and his understanding the African American community specifically skewed towards doing something for for them that they would not have had access to so for me it was it wasn't so much magic. Although it was it was an opportunity opportunity to bring starbucks to underserved communities in a way that at the time we didn't quite understand. We didn't have the the the knowledge of how to do UH. I think we have the license to do. We didn't so we needed. I think an ambassador and and magic turned out to be exactly what he said he would be. He showed up and he was real. we had a great partnership and then as we got bigger and more scale got into other businesses. It was just an opportunity. I think think to realize we did great things together. We're still friends today but magic opened up the door to some underserved communities for us and it was the only time we did anything like that and and Jordan's wedding and so I'm still friends with urban still we're both rooting for Michigan State yeah. I think we both probably be at that game on Sunday. If they play Duke I know Howard representing over sixty million Hispanics and having starbucks all over our community entities yeah. We love it and we thank you for. Can I come when we're starting so I was in Miami two weeks ago. Okay and you know I have a an endeavor. We're going on right now about thinking of running for president. I think I heard something about that Alice. Did you know that I did and then by the way the peoples of means thing. You got roasted for that you know. I think it'd be fantastic. Thank you so while I was in Miami. I gave a speech at Miami. Dade it college okay yeah and then after that I was invited to Vicki's bakery in the Cuban section of Miami okay and I had an extraordinary opportunity to talk to about one hundred people in front of this very famous Cuban bakery and all I heard all all afternoon was these greats American stories of Cuban Americans who had come from Cuba and realized great success and so when I hear the President President talking about the downside of Immigration what I experienced that day gave gave me great hope and understanding about the power of immigration and these wonderful cuban-americans. I love that that's been tasked love that yeah yeah all right you ready for a little rapid fire. New Yorker Matt Matt Your Mind. You're fine. I'll start easy what what's up with the sizes.

If I become President I will change it back to small medium and large. I've vote for you. I have no involvement with starbucks but okay I mean we created a language in America but it's I mean I always say small medium. WanNa know what you mean right okay so they get your name right most. That's what name do you give. I always get my real name. Yeah yeah exactly I worry last-named cats. I'm a bigger guy okay and you're about to have a son. I understand yes so will he be little cat. Yes he will until big and then he will. I don't know what he'll be. Maybe Tiger Tiger okay yeah. What about Oh. I actually thought of this while you're talking about the roasters you talk about innovation with the row stories. What have we had a person at the front door. Who just made fun of you when you walked in the door and roasted you? You said you were in innovation a you. In the way you walk in. It's just he just urine ugly. You know and just yells at you and then boom. You're in the rosary. I I think we will pass on that. Okay all right. That's fine Alex Miss sometimes it tops don't fit and I still that's a problem. Okay said saw a problem. We've had that problem. I think I think it's been fixed but I apologize scheduled on your pants yeah every now and then yeah yeah next time it happens chimney cleaning bill okay there we go I actually have something door. Forego the the cleaning cleaning bill the ice ice coffee. It's not uniform so sometimes they'll be like a little luke warm and then sometimes it'd be too much ice. I need a uniform. I know how much I getting. How much ice would you like. I'd like a good amount of ice where it doesn't like sometimes it's at the end. You're drinking like this weird weird gross lukewarm. There's no one is left so we're. GonNa have to work in the okay the straws. Are you GonNa do pay us or you know we're. We're and actually doing that now. I believe what about Metal Strauss people don't like metal stores because they could hurt kids a metals if the future father. I'm I agree with you. There okay I don't even know how that works that this. The big straws are sometimes a little too big. They're like actually all the time because they're the same size they're like. Maybe half an inch too big so we're going to take that back Yep. Okay you got that one. Just keep that What about getting my dad brain dump literature okay.

"I went to Cooperstown with my son Jordan and at a in the the breakfast in the morning every every hall of fame player Iconic Player was walking through so Ernie banks before he passed away Hank Aaron Bob Gibson. I just I couldn't believe it. I was just in our this thinking myself. I've only my father was alive to see this but about ten minutes in a God walked in and I'm looking at him and I just I can't believe it's him and it was one of the ones like you just mentioned off. Stay stay before we got on about Michael Jordan when he when this guy walked in. I couldn't talk I was like starting to sweat and it was Sandy Koufax. Oh Wow and Colfax walked and I swear the whole room turned around everyone and he was so regal and so handsome and so a wrecked shape great shape and and I just couldn't I couldn't get off my chair and my son Jordan kept on saying you gotta go introduce yourself. I couldn't do it now. Of course I missed it for listener though because yeah if you say a little I don't really WanNa talk to you then. You lose that for our listeners. you know one of the things that people don't know about Colfax besides being greatest pitchers of all time he was even bigger icon in the Jewish community yes and wouldn't pitch and he would've pinched Shalom right. I mean it it was down for Chabad but I spent some time with him in the world series and I gotTa tell you he is probably the best left handed pitcher of all time and even a better person with unbelievable character there and like you said our incredible regal carries him. He's a good looking guy. This looks like the white hair ear and the Guy all right look. I'm feel find saying remember when he came out. When the dodgers in the world series last the world series a million times never won it but he comes out and it's like well kind of breathtaking Sandy Koufax. There is all right so those are baseball like little mini entrepreneur to be a great leader so let's let's start with the story of starbucks. Maybe walk us through you graduate. Ah College Xerox Yeah and by complete almost accident you walk into a starbucks store right. You tell us that story. I was working for a company that had sold a product to starbucks so I came to Seattle for the first time in eighty-one and I walked into the first store at the pike place market and was was swept away with just the essence of the experience and basically for a year I tried to convince the two founders to hire me and the and I was successful came out in one thousand nine hundred to my wife. Sherry and I and our dog Durham golden retriever drove three thousand miles kane the Seattle. We had six stores. When I arrived a year later I went to Italy for the first time to a trade show for starbucks and while I was there ran into hundreds of Italian espresso bars prior to that starbucks coffee company did not sell any beverage average just coffee for the home so when I saw the romance to theater at a sense of community I raced home to the founders and said I I think I've seen the future of the business we have to transform starbucks and bring out Espresso. They didn't think it was great idea so they didn't want to do it so to make a long story short. I left starbucks and started my own coffee company and open three coffee bars with Christine Day. Wow too in Seattle one in Vancouver. What what was it called illegitimately came after the Italian newspaper I don't know how long we have but I gotTA keep place. Okay okay so I don't have a salary. We're just really struggling and starbucks itself gets into financial trouble. After it acquires a company in California called Pete's coffee the company so pizza in starbucks one company. The founder of starbucks comes to me and says we're going to sell starbucks. We can't keep both companies. He's we think you're the right. GotTa buy okay. Two quick stories. The first one is as I said I had no salary and she was pregnant with our first. The child Jordan and Sheri's parents come and visit US insurance father says I like you. WanNa take a walk with you. Oh that's always is a problem yeah yeah okay so we go for a walk and he says listen my my daughter's eight months pregnant. She's she's still working You've you've got a dream but it's a hobby. You gotta get a job. Why I start crying. Thank crying embarrassed. I said well I I understand. Let me talk sharing so that night later that night there they go to bed. I share the story. She's outraged that her father would have said that to me. So at that moment of Sherry would have said I think he's right. there'd be no. I wouldn't be here. You'd be talking to somebody right. She says we're GONNA see the stroke and she supported me. We raised the money however in raising money to acquire starbucks something really dramatic happened and that is he gave me sixty days to acquire the company. This is the pizza owner yeah the original start regional starbucks yeah right and not so sixty days exclusive and he came to me and it was three point point eight million dollars to buy six stores in eighty-seven now. I didn't have three point eight million. I had to go out and raise. The money counts to me in thirty days and he says how you doing so so I got half of it raised. I'm sure I'll find the other half but I did not know if I could and he says to me. One of your investors from Ilter Nali has come to me. Four million dollar offer all cash no due diligence. We're GONNA have to take and I said no way. You can't do that right so here's the punchline I tell a friend of mine the story my whole life is about to end this is going to be a crushing blow and he says estimate you gotta go see the senior partner of our law firm tomorrow morning. I said Okay I will who is it and he says a name. I never heard Bill Gates senior. Oh my gosh senior right not gates right so eight o'clock in the morning. Go See Bill Gates senior. I tell them the whole story and he says digitally you left anything out. I said no everything you told me true. I said yes and he says come back in two hours literally okay so I I leave. I come back in two hours and Bill Gates senior says Howard come on. Let's go for a walk I said. Where are we going. He said we're GONNA. Go see the man. The man is trying to steal the company. Oh Wow so. I don't know if you call them. I don't know any is it okay so we my heart is palpable tasting. I don't know what's what's GonNa Happen. We walk in and he storms into the guy's office and he and sit Bill Gates Seniors six foot seven big man and at the time was the lawyer in town. This other guy was to tighten businessperson in Seattle at that time and eighty seven and he leans over his desk and he says you should be ashamed of yourself. I saw trying to steal. This kid's dream so this is what's going to happen. WE'RE GONNA Walk Outta here. Howard's going to buy the company and you're going to stand down and we walkout and I say I said Mr Gates what what just happened right and he said you're going to buy the company and I'm going to help you with my son. My son and I can help you now. Mike now listen to this day. Bill Gates senior never told a soul of the humble act of helping me never charged me nothing so year and a half ago at the Microsoft CEO Summit. I'm speaking and sought at the. NFL The CEO Microsoft who's on the starbucks sports is you've got to tell that story because bills in the front row I tell the story. I assume they'll knows if I get off stage and he says who was that who was the guy and I said you don't know he said my dad never told me the story story so the humility of brigade senior and having my back like that helping this kit so Sherry Schultz at night says we're in this we're sticking and Bill Gates senior. the reason at starbucks was able to build this company. That's fantastic. I mean that that believable unbelievable what I love about those stories I think a lot of people who glorify entrepreneurial like behavior haven capitalism which you built your company on think that it just someone who did it all now sells and they were better than everyone else but you're you what you just said it. Is it takes you know some help. It takes some lock. It takes like people too. I'm not the smartest room on the way but it's a team sport right it. So now we have a lot of young listeners that are in college going to school entrepreneurs and they all look up to you walk us through the exercise sure cise so now. How old are you at a time.

"Nineteen eighty-one visited a store called starbucks coffee company in Seattle and obviously the rest of great history so Howard first of all. Thank you so much for being on our show a great to be here thank you both. I've been a big Fan. I obviously I got here in one thousand nine. Hundred four arrived here a seventeen year old and I just knew the Seattle was the furthest place from Miami and the dodgers had the number two pick that year and truth truth be told. I was hoping that will go play for Tommy lasorda. We almost actually had deal done and the mariners drafted me God here and the entire city Eddie had cody of starbucks and obviously the culture you created here first of all. Just tell us a little bit about your childhood your New York sure so I grew up in the projects in public housing in Canarsie section of Brooklyn like so many the of us. My childhood experiences shaped my life. a number of different episodes produced a level of insecurity. Shame shame vulnerability of being a poor kid I when I was seven years old. My father was a truck driver picking up and delivering delivering cloth diapers before the invention pampers and he was a winter day he fell sheet of ice nine hundred sixty and basically if you're a blue-collar worker in nineteen sixty and had an accident you were dismissed fired soda with no health insurance no workers compensation and I at the very young age of seven kind of witnessed the fracturing of American family couldn't pay the ninety six dollars a month rent and went through a whole whole series of issues watching my parents struggle I never possibly imagined that one day I would be ambition to be part of a company build a company but everything I've done professionally at starbucks has been more or less to try and build the kind of company my father never got a chance the workforce so dignity and value and then twenty five years before the affordable care act providing companies have health insurance ownership for every employee and then three years ago free college tuition for everybody and so you know in the Environment Taurean now to hear people criticize vilify success or capitalism starbucks in so many ways is a I think emblematic of a company that's been built by balancing. Prophet and social responsibility and demonstrating that success can be shared so i WanNa talk about your college years and the fact that you're the first person in your family to go to college but before that sports growing up Yuccas because you know any I think we find when we talk to people entrepreneurs or people at the top of their profession. They have that competitive itch at an early age whether it be through through school or sports yeah. It seems like you were someone who had it through sports what we're sports like for you. When you were growing up so we had a school yard that was too small for all the buildings in the projects so from morning tonight there were three full court basketball courts and a school yard so all these kids came down at the exact same time eight nine o'clock in the morning to play one of those games and if you if you got in the game and you lost your basically. Siklie spent the next three hours sitting and waiting this is concrete so you did anything you possibly could to stay on that court and that drove a tremendous amount of competitive pressure. You did not want to sit for three hours. It was that kind of environment it was also an environment of a tremendous level community because the environment was very diverse so I grew up with kids very different than myself. We had one elevator in a building with eighty apartments very small. everyone shared the same kind of we were all in it together. we knew each other really well and then when I got to high school I was fortunate enough to play quarterback on a high school football team many many years ago and throw the ball. I was yeah I had a very good arm not not as strong as Alex's but that's another story yeah. and I was fortunate enough to be noticed one day by somebody who was looking it for another kid. It's really kind of weird story and that's how I got northern Michigan University. However when I went there to dream about a plane football I noticed that they were a little bigger Michigan. They weren't Brooklyn Yup and they wanted to move me to a wide receiver worse than that defensive back and I and I just not into that defensive stuff so I ended up not playing but I I went to school with Tom. Izzo and St Mary's right and so watching is the last week or so has been great yeah and can. I mentioned what I just told you say so you know my son Jordan and C. Game Com have this podcast call pull up and Izzo was on two weeks ago and he said something that was just so apropos for life and so the question was what kind of kids do you try and recruit and Izzo says streak kinds of kids kids like it kids who love it and kids will limit uh-huh I recruit kids will live that's awesome and and that you can take that and apply it to anything right business entrepreneurship sports and that is about sacrifice loving so something so much that you're willing to do anything and that also goes back to starbucks rex because the odds on nine hundred ninety seven when it had eleven stores one hundred employees today would be virtually impossible. Yeah it can only happen in America right so you would say you like sports. You like no. I loved it. I'm living he lives. starbucks live my family. I think yeah yeah you didn't live full. I did live the Yankees stone right yeah. Andrew tells about the Yankee. Look you own a sonics for well. We'll get there but baseball is one of your I love. I Love Baseball and your father yeah tell me about that yes so my father and I had a tough off relationship and he was very bitter came back from World War Two and never found his purpose but he was a massive Yankee Eh and so three or four times during the summer we would take the subway and go stadium and sit in right field and Roger Marris was right in front of a while so nineteen sixty one which we named the team yeah this sound crazy. I'm about the Yankees and so Whitey Ford number sixteens. He's pitching yeah Yogi Berra number eight or elston Howard number thirty two is catching Moose Karen. I base number fourteen Bobby Richardson Second Base Number One Tony Kubeck shortstop number ten clete Boyer Third Base Number Six the MIC is in center number seventy seventy Roger Marris in right field number nine and then left field is either blanchard or Tommy Trash fifteen manager manager three Casey stangl and Ralph Help Number Casey stangl thirty seven. Yes Ralph how this is. You know what this is. Can I just stop you for. This is very comforting because a lot of times. I think all the sports knowledge that I know has stopped me from being like really successful yeah because it's all just trash in my brain but hearing you rattle off the nineteen sixty one yankees yeah the person you are yeah look kids who listening at home. You can actually care about sports. It's and care about stupid statistics still making and there's so much about baseball strategically that applies to so much yeah because the game so much science game yes yeah in science and his failure. If you fail seven times okay right you you walk into the hall of fame and is really the gritty the the people that can actually persevere and deal with you know the negativity right and most people can't is is often not the most talented is people like Marino in jeeter and pettit. I mean there's probably a thousand pitchers that are better than Andy Pettitte yeah but if he's in the fall stadium knowing you will pick on top of anti pattern number forty eight forty six forty six. Ah would you buy the Yankees. They went for sale not for the price. They would be yeah. The only Yankees kicked the tires. Yeah it was a pretty last week and and talk to Reggie but the highlight you were in Tampa. I wasn't Wa the highlight for me. I I was just out of my mind talking Aaron. Judge and I could not believe the size of them. I mean to be that big and that athletic and so humble and such a gentleman ah what an x ray kid fantastic a lot of time I mean who brought him up through the minor leagues and he has not changed one bit. Here's a guy that's six foot. Seven two two hundred eighty pounds less than ten percent body fat as a thirty two inch vertical and can hit a ball five hundred feet. I told Major League baseball this week you should spend tens of millions of dollars marketing Aaron judge because he's the one guy that not only transcend sports but he's the one guy that you can build over the next couple of decades. He is is any place of the Yankees so so that's interesting. We'll get back to your business career but we alex and I always talk about it because I I love baseball but it's not my I love football more than anything and we always talk about baseball and image problem of having superstars. You grew up in a time when baseball players were they were like the American superstar Yankee Manager. Was the Tom Brady peyton manning or Aaron Rodgers like that. Was it bigger right. So where do you think baseball can do to kind kind of rectify. What spin a little bit of a slip last ten year round so why it's interesting when I was at spring training what I noticed is how old and most of the people there I guess one because Florida Tired People Florida but I I assume that the baseball audience the generations getting getting older. How does baseball market to millennials when the game is long slow? I don't have an answer for that. Yeah off and baseball unlike other sports in my mind is generational in terms of team you root for so if your parents or your father is not a baseball fan. You're not growing up in a house over you watching baseball baseball. I also think it's the issue that I can't really wrap my head around is it's so city specific you root for your team in baseball and that's it whereas on NFL Sunday you watch every game. It doesn't really interesting thought about it. You know like I don't care about what's happening in the Al West or the you know what I mean are the a central in the AL or something like that so it's hard to to care about other teams whereas basketball and football especially you can kind of watch any game and you can't really watch if you're not a fan of the Yankees. You can't really watch a Yankees. Orioles came in April so this is interesting so when we all grew up as suppose number one today's he's number three. Maybe four I think is a classic case of good as enemy of great. I mean good is the enemy of great and the reason why when I entered the major leagues I was eighteen years old right here in this city and Seattle now the industry nine hundred ninety four was a billion dollar industry. Today is ten billion baseball. Yes when it was major. League baseball was at a billion in dollars. The players took home sixty percent of the pie. Today is at ten billion owner are taking percent sixty percent of the pie a massive shift so because it's a ten billion dollar industry in many ways owners don't WanNa mess with the good right in many ways the best thing that can happen to baseball is to fall on their face a little bit and half to play aggressive to catch up like the NBA and like the NFL has done a fantastic job growing the game globally but also connected to the next generation because they can take more chances baseball is married to his history but you WanNa make that asset your biggest liability so also oh. I think little league is way down. in terms of how many kids are playing baseball now yeah. Can you tell you a hall of Fame Story About Baseball so my dear friend Tony. The getting inducted to the hall of fame. I'd never been a cooperstown..

And now had seems like perhaps across the country. We'll see we'll see. So for people who might have missed this Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO says that he's considering running for president. I why did they have to do these multi-stage rollouts I test the market. Okay. And he's got sell some books. That's right. One of the best tweets that is for cash. Exactly somebody's the book is called from the ground up. And somebody said clearly it should have been called from the ground up. Got to grow. Maybe that's the problem at any rate. John you had a very specific reaction when you heard the news that Howard Schultz was considering running for president for sop. This isn't this isn't a big surprise. He's just formerly coming out now and saying that he might be considering note, he is considering he's Concetti might might running. Correct. You know, hey, I'm from a couple of schools of thought on this. It's a democracy. Anybody should be able to throw his or her hat into the ring if they feel compelled to go in compete for the presidency. So Howard Schultz more power to 'em to launch in there and see what he can do. That said I mean, if you wanna get into the personal personal politics of it. Howard Schultz would not even win. A city council seat in Seattle, let alone on a national basis, and there are several things that actually actually struck me here. We're based here in Seattle were part of the coastal elites if you will. Or however, you want to call it, you know, this, and I think Howard Schultz is a product of that born in New York grew up in New York has lived much of his adult professional life in Seattle. He's a product of the coasts, and my personal opinion is this next presidential election is not going to be won by people who represent the coasts. It's going to be the heartland my home state of Ohio, it's going to be people that can identify with the problems of people in Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in Indiana, an Iowa and the upper midwest if you want to win the presidency, thou those are the people that you need to convince and I don't think Howard Schultz is that person. But maybe he obviously believes he is he believes that he can not only win it or at least contend, but do it as an independent, and it was interesting. Jay inslee. The other person from Washington. State who's considering a happens to be the governor? Yes. He came out and said that was reckless of Howard disagree with that. I mean, I think it's a democracy in any. And there's no reason that we have to have these two gangs of Republicans and Democrats as the only people that are competing for this office. Now, do I think it would potentially screw things up for the Democrats. Yes. Do I think that's a problem given the current political situation we have yes? But I mean, it's it's I don't think there's an reason why our Scholtz shouldn't be able to to do this. Now, some may say he can only do it and only run because he's been able to amass this massive fortune that allows them to do it not no ordinary Joe or Jane can go out and decide they're going to be an independent candidate. And actually have a chance of winning. What do you think of the fact that it's Inslee and Scholtz of all the people who could be running from you might say going on this because this was this was we were talking on our slack a little bit about this. And this was actually. A column idea that I threw out there was with all the great people from Washington state, and there are many why do we have these two that are potentially representing? What's what's your problem with these? I mean, they're both. I think they're genuinely decent people. But they're not my first choice of people. So I would like to see step up and serve our country and lead us out of the morass..

"What happened back in nineteen Ninety-two? It's not the perfect analogy for today. But no story would be Ross Perot was a well known businessman when he decided to run for office in the early nineties. Same is Howard Schultz is now and like today the sitting president, George H W Bush was in trouble the economy was faltering. He was worried about being implicated in the Iran, contra affair, and what you saw in the start of nineteen Ninety-two was Bush's approval rating was plummeting a year earlier he'd lead the country victory in war. The first Gulf war to get Saddam Hussein out of rack in early ninety two February nineteen Ninety-two Bush's approval rating false of thirty nine percent. And it's in that climate that Ross Perot goes on Larry King show. Larry King Live on CNN is any scenario in which you would run for president. Can you give me a scenario which say, okay, I'm in? Number one had a want. King asked him a bunch of times. Hey, you know, people are looking for would you run for president? And finally on you know, third passer so Perot finally just says if you're that series the people are that series. You register me in fifty states. And if you're not willing to organize and do that, then this is all just. Are you saying to the ordinary folks if you're dead serious starting? Sweat Alyce some sweat. Why do I wanna see some sweat? I said it earlier I want you in the rain. It's amazing because you basically don't have an internet in the way, we know it today. You don't have social media in the way, we know it today. And yet, it's this this sort of viral moment that word of that moment, the clip of that moment, you know, spreads spread slower than it would now. But over the course of days weeks and months this massive, and I truly truly massive grassroots movement emerges that starts getting Perot on the ballot. But spring ninety two by May June ninety two Ross Perot's running in first place in the national polls. He's a head to George H W Bush Clinton is far far behind and people are contemplating the possibility that Ross Perot might actually win the presidential election. Become an independent president blow up the two parties. Of course, this worst case scenario is not what happened Bill Clinton one is. I was president some of blame Perot for Bush's failure to win reelection. But Steve disagrees says pro was just a symptom of Bush's ailing presidency. Not the cause even so pro did manage to get almost twenty million votes..

"The twenty twenty presidential field is getting crowded. They're the big names Kamala. Harris Elizabeth Warren Huston gillibrand, then they're the wildcards like the spiritual guru Marianne Williamson. She announced he was running his democrat earlier this week. But part of what's making people so upset about Howard Schultz is that by running as an independent he can skip the whole weeding out process of the primary, and he's got the money to hang around. If all someone knows about Howard Scholtz is that he runs Starbucks. And that's where I get my coffee. Is there more to him that we need to understand? Or do we not know yet? Yeah. I mean, I think you do need a bigger story than that. He look at the the third party candidacies that have you know, that have gotten some traction. I think the the best one the most encouraging modern example for somebody like Howard Schultz who might be thinking about running third party would be Ross Perot in nineteen ninety two. The guy heckling Howard Schultz that in New York City bookstore and all the people ratio him on Twitter there haunted by the ghosts of that nineteen Ninety-two election like Howard Schultz Ross Perot ran is a billionaire and a Washington outsider. He actually got nearly twenty percent of the vote wasn't enough to win. But some say it was enough to change the outcome. So as Steve to put me in the back seat of his time machine. And see if we could get a better idea of how one third party candidate influenced and election, and what that might say about how Howard Schultz could change the outcome in twenty twenty stay with us..
"schultz" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"Well, four an exploratory bid. And you're wondering who you know, Howard Scholtz Howard Schultz is the super lefty CEO, former CEO of Starbucks and he went on sixty minutes last night. He said he's thinking about running. He probably is going to run if he runs he's going to run an independent bid for the presidency. He will largely self fund. He's a multibillionaire and the left is apoplectic about it. I do have to say it is a measure of the partisanship in the media is how they're treating the Howard Schultz bid. Normally the media run stories about how great it is. There's more participation more women, they're more. They're more millennials are more people running for. Presents a wonderful democracy and strong. Now this guy comes in and he wants to sell fund in Ron booth. Our boo you're going to get Donald Trump reelected. I mean, the media is tree this complete meltdown by members of the media. Not just not just partisans not just partisan pundits. But some reporters are clearly showing their partisan stripes by how opposed they are to the idea of Howard Schultz running because it's not about more democracy. It's not about participation democracy. It's all about stopping Donald Trump. And that that's aggravating to me. Now, you should know. I did the research today I do expect to be voting for the president in twenty twenty. I mean, he's not my favorite y'all know what I think about him. But the Democrats are clearly moving more and more hard left more more vindictive against people faith, and anyone that doesn't support the progressive agenda. I tried third party in two thousand sixteen it didn't work out. It just makes me more aggravated that that I supported that guy. Som- probably gonna go with the president in twenty twenty. I've had a number of candidates who have come down to Macon and met with me to pick my brain or a minimum at the airport in Atlanta. The got a great conference facility there and just had a great chat with them about running. And I've told them all I think it would support the president. But their critiques of the president. And why they think the running are interesting something the White House needs to consider something. Everybody should consider it a lot of it is about the president. Basically they. I think that the the president's administration serves reelection, but not the president himself that ultimately, but a mind damn Glock Lynn boiled, it down to that from based on what he read I wrote you can read it at the resurgent dot com, but the Howard Schultz bit is interesting because the left immediately presumes it's going to hurt a democrat because Howard Schultz is going to run on fiscal responsibility. He's gotta run on the deficit and otherwise to run a socially progressive. He's for gay marriage. He's four transgenderism he's for gun control. He's for making the Christian bigots bake, the cakes. He's for liberals on the supreme court is for all the stuff the left wants, but Scholtz wants to run saying pox on both your houses. The Democrats are fundamentally broke it in the Republicans are fundamentally broken Schultz has said and is now saying repeatedly the thinks both parties have led America stray he thinks both parties have been bad for business and bad for the Konami alternately and bad for our future. And you know. There is a legit. Critique there the Republicans for the longest time were perceived as the ones who are good for business. Good for the economy and good for spending good on the national debt, and the Republicans are spending as much as the Democrats have wanted to spend. They're not doing anything to control the debt or the deficit. They are they've lowered taxes so purportedly. They're good for business, but the long-term debt burden winds up impacting businesses and bond rates in the like, the president's tariffs with China are impacting the economy. The Chinese economy is slowing down pretty significantly, a worldwide recession is imminent. I can't tell you. Now, the number of of business people and elected officials who have been receiving the private economic briefings from the fed and elsewhere and from private analysts, all of whom are starting use the r word recession, and I think there's something to that. So Scholtz's running essentially as Donald Trump is bad. Bad in his mishandling, the economy and spending. But Democrats are no better on those issues, and the Democrats were livid left wing activist groups are declaring boycotts of Starbucks. No..

He cannot be faded folks. So this is Howard Schultz who I get someone informed me of this addition to being the Starbucks Scott. He's also the asshole that fucked up the SuperSonics, right? Oklahoma city's fan of this. And if you go to the Wikipedia page for two thousand twenty potential democratic presidential candidate, no is no, it's a very broad list. It's got a lot of crazy names on their Mark Cuban and stuff. It's the broadest possible list, but on the list is Howard Schultz. Okay, wasn't considered. Remember he was on the shortlist for Hillary's cabinet. He would have been at least secretary of I think labor, and maybe even like commerce or fucking treasury. Well, this is interesting because in these books he offers a fairly telling vision of the ideology of contemporary capitalism. Into this. His first book is called onward, which I think was the same slogan as the Italian.

"Charm offensive was extremely successful and the end result was was that schultz got off on his trial that he was not found guilty that the system at the time required a consensus vote to find him guilty they were not able to achieve that so his case was tossed out schultz was genuinely surprised by his victory and the small town judge was a poem and the judge of the case was just infuriated and actually gave a little speech in the courtroom saying basically implying that you know out of town people have come here and tried to impress the locals and this is terrible and basically scolds the jury author thomas repetto the judge ruled later that those folks could never serve on jury he said this this decision is against the evidence dutch had beaten the government rap for tax evasion but on his return to new york schultz discovered that other forces had also been conspiring against him schultz one and malone but he quickly realizes that he's been betrayed by one of his closest associates bo weinberg who's been with them for years with schultz on the ropes weinberg had been plotting to betray him to his archrival lucky luchino lucky luciano he was in communication with a guy named long willman and was sort of communicating with them and basically saying i'll help you take over dutch schultz's criminal empire if you give me either a chunk of the proceeds or let me run part of the empire myself so bo was thinking very much scholtz is either going to go to jail or get kim.
