"Retail food bank. And so they would have pallet loads of food, dropped off, and it was this pastor and his wife were the ones that were breaking these in like 500 boxes and then distributed it to 500 people. So I saw that. And I thought I'd never heard of this church. And furthermore, it's a Spanish church. And so I waited for the sun to come up. And I called a pastor, not knowing what kind of reception I would get. And I introduced myself. And I said, could you use some help? He said, oh, we sure good. And by 11 o'clock, I called I called some sake presents. I call it Randy Rigby, who oversees just serve and Davis county. But 11 o'clock, we had 70 people there. And we broke down the food and then later that afternoon, the people came by and picked up the food. And then the next week, we did the same in anticipation of Thanksgiving. Well, as a part of that, then I'm developing this relationship with his pastor. And I turned to him and I said, so what are your needs? What are your dreams? And he pointed to his worship facility, I hadn't seen on the inside, just looked like an old warehouse. And he said, oh, we want to turn that into a temple. And he said, we need carpet, and we did this and we do that. And I said, let me see what we can do. So I contacted the state president in that area, who was most supportive and excited about getting involved in this and reached out to some local merchants who donated carpet, the steak and the ward there. I donated the labor and then a whole bunch of other things end up donating all through that. We've had a great connection with the stake to this church. So through this experience, we've become very close with this pastor and his wife as a co pastor, pastor novice, and the cost of anything else, and we help them to get their facility ready to be dedicated as a temple. I also worship for them. He's apostle from Guatemala City, flew up from Guatemala for the dedication, which was last April. I was invited to speak at that dedication. The dedication was three and a half hours long, included about an hour and a half in the middle of a Christian rock band, and it was quite remarkable because it was very loud. And then it got very quiet and very reverent. And this apostle ordained this pastor, these pastors who passed on his wife is very sacred. Most a wonderful experience. So it sounds like it really begins it's easy to assume in Utah where you are familiar with what other denominations or churches there are, but to be proactive and really looking for opportunities to step in and serve and lend a hand. Correct. Yeah. Those opportunities are there. And we have other congregations. And so we are working really hard to connect the local stakes and bishops with these congregations. I'll give you one other experience. Two others, so there's a Spanish Hispanic church of occasional that we work with. They've had needs, they're parking lot needs to be repaired and sealed. And they've had some issues in their basement with mold. And so the state communication contact has been very actively involved in getting contractors and leaning on people for lower bids and donations. So it's works when we follow the procedures and intend to be things work. Yeah. So I want to pivot back to your time as mission president. What was your general approach to his own conference? Did you have a methodology there that was your own conference? I'd always pray about a topic. And we would have a particular thing, and we'd ask as the missionaries to come prepared with a 5 minute talk on that scene. And then at random, I would call on a missionary and some would play the odds. And get caught. And you knew when they got caught? One of the funniest ones was I called on sister Judith street once as a 5 minute talk. And she was not prepared. That ended okay. Anything else his own conferences that were? So we would it was a process that we kind of developed over time. We'd have workshops, workshops would be led by either assistance to the president or zone leaders. We would have from what I remember. It's been a while. And these workshops would center on missionaries skills teaching and finding and those kinds of things such as would lead to workshop on might be cooking or sewing or some helpful skills that way. We would for the new missionaries coming from the states we'd hold a workshop workshop should be held in English, but for everybody else they were held in Spanish. I recall, hey, had an assistant from Argentina, who was learning one to learn English. And I had him come into the office to be one of the office workers and he, one of the office missionaries, and he told all the other elders who were all from the states. Said don't speak Spanish. She said I want to learn English, which he did. He became quite fluent. And then later in his mission, he became one of my assistants, and he would teach the English workshops in English. Oh, wow. So now I'll roll the clock forward several years. This elder became let's call as a state president. This would have been two or three years ago down on the stake that was created the very tip of South America, Louis shuya steak. It's the southernmost stake in the entire church. And it'll hurt a lot of Romano. Is the safe president? Wow, this is awesome. That is great. So we'd have these workshops. And then the afternoon, we'd have a lunch and they would in the afternoon. Substitute us. And I would give some spiritual issues around the theme that we're talking about. And then we'd hear a testimony generally from those that were going home. One of the things that concerned me when we got her a mission is I didn't feel like this sister missionaries were treated with great respect. And so we worked really hard on that. We'd have started by having the sisters when we'd be meeting in the chaplain or zone conference. They'd sit up front. And we've been working on this. And I kind of felt like the elders were starting to figure it out and they were starting to treat the sisters with a little bit more respect. But I wasn't sure. And so I intentionally that one zone conference I set up fewer chairs and tables than there were missionaries. Now, elders are really hungry. And they'd come to his own conference. And they just wanted to eat. But my intent was, and I called the sister missionary as a side. And I said, don't let us do. Said there are not enough chairs for everybody. And I want you sisters to go in last. Let's see what happens. Nice little social experiment there. So they were excited about this. So the others get in there, of course they're all sitting down. And all the shares are taken and here come the sister missionaries. And I believe it's a zone leader at the time. Elder Pearson got really nervous when he saw these sisters couldn't find a seat to sit. And he started ordering elders away from the table. And inviting the system and generates to sit down. It was just sweet. Nice. So it's taken hold there. They're cold. That's awesome. That's awesome. With these workshops, was the point just getting people in smaller groups. So there's more interaction there. What was the they tended to be a very open classroom kind of the setting. And again, we'd have three going on. So you could have it a zone conference. You could have typically about 40 or.

"Bit of experience with this. The role of the 70 is to carry out the mission of the 12 that they represent the 12. And the 12. And so is a 70 goes around. He represents the 12 in the responsibility of the 70s to make sure he clearly understands where the 12 set and their positions are and what their areas concerns are and what their focus are. And so we would have regular training and then working with the area presidency who have the direct contact with the 12th on an ongoing basis. Theory presidency then develops an area plan that area plan then gets passed to the state presidents. And then the state presidents and will tweak and adjust their stake plan, but it's under the umbrella of the area plan. And then the state president, then works with his bishops, and that it just funnels all the way down to the end of the role. To how does the primary president relate to this area plan of strength? Yeah. And as far as sometimes it would be difficult on the stake level and the word level to if they don't understand that area plan and maybe it's hard to fit that into your agenda. And whatnot, when you want to carry out maybe a different agenda. That's exactly right. Yeah. I think it's important that we recognize in the church, we do the decision we talked about earlier is needs to be supportive of the brethren. There's a Nelson on down. What does their vision and in this vision we have for our ward or organization? Is it consistent? And isn't under that is it under that umbrella? Yeah. President packer talks about which way do you face? And so our responsibility as leaders is to face the brethren, understand what their hopes and expectations are and then do our part to turn and implement that as we lead those people in our congregations. Not the other way around of well here's here are the needs and the people the organization I think I know better than what president Nelson might know. So the question is which way do you face? Yeah. So anything else in relation to the shared plan process? I think the other thing is just to make sure that the goals, the goals we have in place are the members of the team the followers are bought into them. They agree in their supportive and that they're working to make them happen. And then don't be afraid to make adjustments as you go along. Because things can change. Yeah. So what else as far as key leadership processes that you found? So we have a plan and then we implement it. And we measured as we're going along. And I think, and I won't go a lot into that, but I think the last thing I would say is when appropriate, celebrate successes. And sometimes that can be there can be a goal that's set up front. And if we achieve this goal, here's what we'll do, or it might be at the end. There's some celebration of we've all worked together and we worked hard and let's celebrate the success. I'll give you an example from our mission. We've been in our mission a couple months, and I felt it would be appropriate that we established an overall mission baptism goal. And that was the only goal I wanted to establish. And I remember where I was, the moment I was standing in front of 80 missionaries in his own conference and in a number of popped in my head and it was a baptismal goal for the whole mission, which was almost double where we currently were. So I just threw it out there. Urgent gas. I remember that president chidester is new. He doesn't always talking about. And I said, so when we achieve this goal, sister jitter will make cinnamon rolls for the entire mission. It took till that following July. And we achieved the goal. And we went around and delivered cinnamon rolls to the entire mission. We hauled a microwave and cold milk. And the machine isn't really still talking about that. And just kind of a follow on comment to that, when we establish that goal, I know it was just the beginning. Which it turned out to be. Yeah. But just taking that moment of celebrating that rather than all right, we got that, let's move on to the next thing. It was acknowledgment of a job well done a little a lot of effort by an entire mission. That's cool. Awesome. Let's go back up here. Anything else as far as you mentioned power and influence. Anything we haven't discussed with those two aspects. Yeah, so let's go back to doctor Kevin and one 21 39 three 41. It talks about unrighteous dominion. And I would suggest that when a leader approaches their responsibility not to influence but to power and overpower people that that might be under righteous dominion. But if there is such a thing as unregister minion, I would suggest there's such a thing as righteous dominion. And then I would say that that's the ability to exert proper influence for our followers. Yeah. And how did you see when you felt like you were in that zone? Where did that often look like or because especially with missionaries, I would imagine that this sometimes she just want them to comply. Just do what president says. This will be great. But then there's other times where it feels like, man, I feel like I'm in that zone that doctor Evans won 21 talks about anything coming to mind as far as what that looks like. Well, what it looks like is when the spirit is there in full abundance and directing it. I found in looking back that if those uncharged elite feel and know and recognize that I love them and I love those that they are leading, it makes all the difference. Yeah. As opposed to if a leader is proceeded to have his or her own personal agenda, and people are questioning, why is he doing this? Why is she doing that? Or when the motives are pure and people really sense a great love and that we're doing this because we love God and we love his children. That to me is always the telling feature. One of the things I've learned over the years is that God truly loves his children. Yeah. And he really wants them back home. And so as leaders, we have an opportunity to participate in that process of helping God's children back. I'll share an experience again for our mission in Uruguay. This happened about three months after we got down there, there was this elder who had three months left in his mission. He I don't think his mission was what he had hoped it would be. By the time I got there, I think he pretty well given up. And he was pretty negative and critical of me. He just was a thorn in my side. He just went, he did about everything he could do. He knew every hot button I had. And he was really good at hitting everyone. Oh wow. And so here it comes time for him to leave. And I had made a personal goal before we got into Uruguay that that final interview I'd have with a missionary would be positive would be upbeat because I recognized what was going to happen as I was sending these missionaries back into the world, even though they had been maybe 8000 miles away from home. They'd really been in a protected state as the lord's side of our servants. And being a missionary. And so I always wanted that final interview to be just a positive upload here. I still remember to this day been in this mission in the mission home doing these final interviews with these mysteries are going home and I knew this elder was the next one to come in the office and I closed the door before he came in. And I got on my knees and I asked for help because I didn't want to be disingenuous. But I didn't have real positive feelings towards him. And so I asked for help. He I got up I invited him and he sat down. And here we go. I took a deep breath and I looked up and over his shoulder. And this was the first office I had down there was really tiny. It was almost like a closet. But on that back wall, there's a painting.

"So i recorded an episode on little black dress. Basically talked about like the things that i fear and goes into it. You should listen to it. Retold audience you and go should listen to it but yeah like so we are. We're gonna buy another location. And i'm gonna do a second startup and you know what all the things that i have learned from. The first location were just quitting. Make the second one that much better. So and i'm going to of course document the entire journey so man if you're in the middle of doing a startup let's you went together. The making of is going to be small and cotija now that yeah make news. How far is it from your actual practice in thirty five minutes. Oh cancel the is it. But i don't know what do you it's it's far enough that it pulls a completely different demographic but still close enough that it's driveable like you can listen to a podcast episode. Where are we going to document this on my ass. Black dress on the making us and i am. I'm so gung ho about like the documenting part. Because i feel like the first time around. I didn't do enough as far as like telling the actual concrete details like this is what i needed to secure funding. These were the forms that i filled out like. This is what the first bank told me like. You know all of those those steps but now that it's fresh my head. oh man it's so much content who let's do it. let's make it. Hey question about that. do you get annoyed. Still when you see people copying your name looming. They say invitations the greatest form. Father eric i guess it's annoying but i can't i mean i have to accept it it. It's it's amazing that people are finding inspiration in filing co and what we've built so i will take it as a compliment those wondering. What did somebody sue you for. The other one isn't illegal. Don't get the whole. I know technically. I could go after anybody who comes remotely close to my name but who we okay. Everybody listen we. We even saw one. That had the same spot in everything we were like. Are they for real. Happy got anyways. That's exciting super duper exciting. That you're gonna start your next. I don't wanna ask all the details yet. We can we start documenting that right mike. Now rue yom yom. Let's say okay so you need to teach me your amazing videography skills you know. I a gamble. 'cause i am. I'm going to do this right. I'm going to do the floor plan. And i'm gonna bring the video into like meetings with my contractor and with my designer like all the things it's going to be amazing. Denver gonna make a youtube channel on the whole process on my says we're gonna do a smiling core reality show. I like how you were like. All i want to podcast. But i'm opening up a second and then wanted to throw a startup But a it's a you were talking about. This won't point where you were like. I don't know if i want to be the the that one practice who just does is known in the community that's it or open up multiple locations And what made you decide to open a multiple occasions. honestly i just. I know that we've outgrown our space. And as much as i complain about your overhead and lake staff costs and everything just so expensive. I'm so proud of is just a culture that we've created in our office and i love my team. My team work so amazingly well together and the idea of giving my team in actual break room in actual space where they can relax inn where we can meet in have real meetings where they can sit down at the table together like a family. That's what i want. And this this building i was. I was with brian. Brian has a broker who was introduced to him by his partner and He showed me like this other location. Like i was looking just in folsom and mike. My plan was always to keep the original location. Because i love it. I love how cute are are smiling. Co office is so that would be like my quote unquote flagship location. And his broker. Minutes one day and we just peruse some properties and i also met with another broker and it just didn't work out but this one broker said like after he showed us one. Property said yeah. It's okay. I mean it's fine. And he said you know what else. I don't know if you're thinking about maybe a little further. But i do know this other location that you may wanna see. And as i entreat dryden. I said okay. So how can you see like killing. Go there right now at his. I let me check in. And then he ended up showing us that afternoon and michael. Oh my gosh. As soon as i saw it. I just said okay. Let's do this again. Wait are you going to get rid of your other than okay. No so we're going to have two locations and you know okay so may team. I just told them on tuesday this week. I just told them. Because because we just secured funding that long ago. And i didn't want them to get their hopes up and then funding false through or we fall out of contract right by told him on tuesday and they were so freaking ecstatic giddy and you know it was like the cutest response ever. That almost made me cry. They said so. Does that mean that we have to split up ma lake. How amazing is that right but a they love with each other so much that even though they're so excited at this growth on this new location thought of not all being together all the time with saddening.

"And we're like okay in so basically. She was finding an excuse to not come anymore. Yeah like i wish you would have just said you know. I'm sorry but. I really thought i could do this. Commute and i can't not like trying to make a up other excuses so so you let her go but yes so. She's she's not in office anymore than for a while. We just didn't have a third hygienists too. Now we do in. Our last one is amazing. came on board not too long ago but so far she's been awesome so you have. How many employees total there are fourteen of us. Have you lost anybody. Like like that after cova. There's i don't want to do some unemployment now. We have everybody in then hired more coveted for that one. They geneticist. Yeah yeah okay. Gotcha really quick side. Note reading the review from the guy. You were telling me you were talking about. Yeah yeah he he. He said he didn't miss any appointments on. My god says sash ally. i'd can we talk about. This can read it or no is totally against the hip he says like. I'm not gonna read aware word for because just in case but like he's the one who wrote the review so that's public record if you wanna read it. It's true because he says. I do agree however that it was time to go when i realized that business practices. There are to blame the customer when clearly it's the responsible under the iowa's four but when clearly it's the responsibility of the business to explain the policies which is actually the very first thing that the patient signs when they come in for the new patient exempt. It's like a two page like these are our policies for it. We would kindly ask you for x. Amount of time if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment it is so clearly stated there so i was gonna say like i write to him and be like you know what i mean reply. Can you do it on uber. No at a now. I feel like such a mafia dude. I don't even know i. Freeing yoke is like the bane of mine existence like they just hide all of your five star reviews. I have so many of us that are not currently recommended right so they won't show it and they're all the five star reviews that's awesome but but at least did you have an average of five on there though you know what i mean small company. So that's good so then since the last record what else is happening. I know you started a podcast. Know it's gonna be like a little bit sidetracked but like i feel like last time we spoke. You were super busy and and did you mention a second location. Plus one too because i all that and then i'm like oh man talk to you about that well since you brought it up. Thanks michael you mentioned it in the last one. No now knowing. Actually i did just so. We started a podcast in then on the latest episode. I actually just announced it but yeah we are only smokes. We've so these past four years have been amazing. Lake truly truly amazing. Lots of growing in a lot of great memories and i also think that i've just changed so much since the first time we recorded like. Remember how. i didn't wanna delegate. Anything i wanted to do all the social media. I wanted to seal the patient sake. It was a mimi meet. Had so many hands in all these different cookie jars and then. I didn't really know how i was going to react to letting another doctor seema patients. Will you did at one time. Remember and you handed. I hated it. I hated it because it was the wrong time like that was when i left for maternity leave so it was like i was forced to let someone help me but i wasn't ready mentally for that. Like my mindset was all different. Were you ready now or no. Were you still like Like how do you know when is the right time then. I think you have to just figure that out like your your minds you win. You are finally in this space where you can let go of control in your office when you are better at delegating when you hire amazing people and you trust that whatever task they're given they're actually completing it that i think is one of the first step but if you're if your idea of hiring in associated just like oh yeah you can use just want the associate there so you can play golf on friday like i think. That's i mean it works for some offices but then also there's offices are the ones that are gonna cherry pick like the cases right like i truly truly just want honesty if i could just podcast all the time would it's pretty. It's and you know. I like to talk. You know that no way remember. You've told me that. I could just like have a conversation with mice herself of even here so i think so. This whole like four years has been a complete evolution. It's been a. It's been a journey for me from wanting everything done exactly my way wanting it all to be about me me like i'm the brand. I'm the face now. I don't like it when i see on the schedule. Dr ashley only for a patient pop up. I'm like what is that. Why does that patient. Only wanna see me like i met him one time. Why are they requesting. Yeah like so so. I don't want that anymore. I want i want my amazing associates to flourish. I want them to be the new face. Like i don't want people to look for me. I wanna be hiding out in the corner. So i could just creaking recorded podcast and then plan are freaking startup retreat house. They're coming along all. It's not you know because we saw many things that i'm still trying to do right. You know how many people have asked me about it. Like hey i want. I want to do whatever i can all. I don't know it's it's all ashley like i don't know what to you. Wanna be a part of the planning obviously going to be there. Yeah yeah we'll be heard podcast sake before we get on this champion of retreats since you asked me about like where i'm at with the practice. Okay so now. Obviously we started off with just me. And i had three employees in the beginning And now i have fourteen of us and a wing. I don't know why. I get butterflies saying this out loud but i was deciding for a really long time whether or not i wanted to open another location and just over the weekend like So everything is still very much happening now. Because i just secured funding at the end of last week.

"Blocked three hours for crown. Perhaps would dr cassie three hours. That he failed to show like he. I think he message in our before. And of course it's not enough time to fill three hours so now kassy's like doing nothing right twiddling her thumbs. So then we finally said you know what we're just going to tell this guy like we have to impose this lake cancellation fee and you headed imposed the other times. No we didn't. And then he went on on yelp and google and was talking about how blah blah blah. We don't respect his time in. And even i didn't even talk to him. He even pools my name into the conversation that he tried to get in touch with me. And i just ignored his request blah blah blah like. Oh my gosh people will just say whatever the heck they want at the time they'll be like look sir. You've ditched us five times. Yeah i said that. In very broad terms said i'm sorry but the ser- cancellation policy. We really think about this before we act on this because we don't we do value your time and we do understand that emergencies happen. But then i said but it fits the fifth time then yes. It's obvious that it's just not going to be a good fit moving. Yeah can you even say in the review like hey three hours of our time not even close to fifty bucks like you know what i mean. Oh yeah oh yes. Oh i think someone from the maybe judy had had charged him like one hundred dollars and that was pretty cheap like normally. It's fifty dollars per hour that you reserve right. Because that's a lot of time. And he's like he even talked about that he's like fifty or a hundred but can you believe they have the nerve to charge hundred dollars this amount of time. He's like i can understand twenty five dollars but like i like you think the doctors time is worth twenty five dollars did he replied back to your reply or now. He did on yelp so he changed his to sergio to one star. He said for your information. Like i know a haven't i haven't missed five in a row. That's a lie all the stuff. I'm i'm not gonna play this game. I'm not gonna go back and forth. This is what our records show this. Not the office for you you know. What sucks dude. Is that type of stuff that lives in our head like rent free. You know what i mean like. They're just living in there. Yeah and we ma'am becky. We like literally our office bend over backwards to accommodate these patients. Like if they're running twenty five minutes late for a sixty minute appointment we accommodate it because we know that it happens. Like okay okay. Yeah we'll see you. We'll see you. But i think you know something i've learned or something. I'm still learning. Is that a lot of these older offices. That i worked at like. I never understood that before. But the older did the other dentists. They withdraw very firm line very firm boundaries on what they will accept in what they will not accept from patients like they draw the line in the fans. Say you know what is this. Patient is ten minutes late then. We're going to reschedule. It's about training the patient to respect our time to. Yeah that's true. The shows talking to sandy perdue about that the other day. She's like yeah. You have to train your patients like kids you know and I guess you kind of forget that. I mean you want to be nice to. You're a nice person. So like i would always want to be nice to like. I don't wanna be like that. Yeah such a think. I would have to delegate at the somebody yeah. It's o n and Something else that. I've been thinking about was i obviously smiling because my baby mike smith started baby in for so long. It was just me and i would get triggered if my reviews. Were you know not a hundred percent not stellar and i thought after stepping down or stepping taking a step back from the clinical because now i have two other dogs who are doing most of the new patient exams most of the recall exams on. I'm barely there. When i'm there i'm taking care of like my cosmetic cases invisible line as basically what i've been doing. I've been focused on. I thought that if i am seeing patients i wouldn't be as triggered by negative reviews and it is not the case at all. I still very much like even. If i've we've gotten recent like four star reviews. And i'm reading the four right now. Yeah and i. I'm not even in those reviews anymore like i. sometimes. I don't even know i've never met these patients and i would think like okay. Well you know growth happens like some you know some. It's not it's not going to be a good fit. Or whatever. But i take every single review so personally still like. It's still my baby. And i don't know how to not you'll that way detached from yeah. I don't know dude. But look like i'm looking at your your your five year. Average is five. It says five for seven hundred. Fifty two reviews. Your average is five. Lak- i will focus on the non five stars. What is up with us. Humans like that. I am i one hundred percent kinda gets you. Sometimes you everything right. And then why why. Why why are you like that. Yeah that's something i guess. Maybe just yeah what you're doing. Turn off everything right it so anyways. You're still getting good reviews. You're getting a bunch of people who are being right and then you are now hiring on a new hygienist. 'cause the last one left or what. Yes so. We have a hygienist apply. She had been following our social media for a long time and she actually knows someone who is on the team already. So she's ever since she she finished her. She got her hygiene license. He said like. I wanna be a part of your team. The problem is that she lives in galt. Which is like an hour and a half away from folsom could second hour and half the way and we said you know these are our hours. We don't want you get burnt down like a very long commute. And she said no. No no i totally. I am good. Like i really just want to be on this team blah blah blah. I'm find the commute. First thing we know is like a month later. She basically said adds. The hours aren't working for me. Like we literally said these are the hours that we need somebody. And then what do i do. Of course i try to accommodate right. I'm always trying to comment like okay. Well i know that we really need someone for the six o'clock shift but okay how about we have you ended four. Pm in have you only do one nine shift and that was a month in. I was already bending over for that. And then a few weeks later. She's like Yeah i think. I have health issues like Really sick i can't. I can't come to work.

"And could you believe that an entirely empty and then seating a couple at such a large table that he could have easily placed this at okay so then after she saw. You guy told her that what happened. After that. she left to or now now. They ended up saying saying. I know that would have been amazing if everybody just walked out of this with the end of the story was going to happen having drop by. You know what's pretty cool like because of social media 'cause they put it on. I didn't put them on blast like whatever restaurant was because social media so many people ask me what restaurant that was because they were visiting maui within the next few weeks and i told them what happened. None of were going to eat there. Were like oh my gosh. I'm so glad. I ask 'cause. We almost made reservations there so it wasn't just me. It was like multiple reservations afterwards. That this stupid person thought that he could just like what is even the point of that. Like why would you treat people like that. I don't know maybe he just couldn't like understand. Some people were like my brain doesn't work that way ahead already set to this. I don't know only heat. No he just had a ridiculous power trip like he was like he wanted to prove a point. You couldn't beat the system by making a four reservation on its reservation in magically. Combine them like he taught us he taught us was. That was such a long tangent. I just had to get that off. My chest is what is what is. Roy's roy is the a nice establishment. I'm gonna go just to check it out to make sure i'm just kidding. Yeah right now. Can you make a reservation for three in. it's only us. And your wife leah Do that sucks man that really did you leave a review or no no. I didn't leave a review. Oh my gosh are you serious. I should've i hate leaving negative reviews. Because i i'm so triggered by them like it hurts my heart to get a not five-star reveal so vowed that i won't be there at person that karen who lives arena. Even though this one was well deserved. Have you gotten a negative reviews Share yeah jim abuse triggered by them that actually turn off my email notifications like have such a thing about always wanting everyone to be so wowed by us you know and it's it's tough ever since ever since cova. Did i feel like the expectations from people have become crazy. I like i. Don't i think that people have been quarantine for so long that they now have forgotten manners and patients and courtesy. It's like they might only there's only four people in the world that exists. Exactly exactly why. Have patients like come out rooming or you pay. She amount of families that we've dismissed after reopening from cova has skyrocketed and also the okay so the thing that i hate about negative reviews especially i mean the fact that we are. We're bound by hibba compliance. So a patient can basically live through their teeth about what happened right. Because if you even mentioned a fee of any gravity right like you can say oh you only twenty bucks and you actually collect right or you. Demand collect in that from the patient and they don't want to that could trigger a very nasty yelp review and people all the time ryan. But you can't you can't defend yourself. You can't talk about anything that happened with patients case. He can't talk about treatment. You can't you can't basically tell your side of the story. So that's what i hate about it like i feel like we're at the mercy of a crazy person who ends up leaving review. Who most likely we didn't even want in our practice to begin with like there's this one guy who left a review that he went on and on and on talking about how he is like this He he spent so much money at our office that he was a valued client and then all of a sudden we hit him with a fifty dollar or whatever on late late fee cancellation for doing that. You do that. Oh yes we've totally done that and that is what pissing everybody off but honestly when you're already so short staffed we went from three hygienists down to two in men. Now we had no no hygienists to cover right like nobody wants to work and then We just did not have anywhere to put these patients. So we're like. I'm so sorry please word like over staff. There's a national hygiene shortage. We please be patient with us. We're trying to get you in so we have basically a wait list of hundreds of people. Michael who the girls at the front our check marketing and making sure that we're trying to get them back on the books. It's that bad so the that bad understaffed her. or what. do you mean not anymore understaffed. but we were understaffed like we just hired another hygienist. But if i were to be like okay patient. Elena's schedule haven't merged or not. I just want to schedule. An appointment like monday could i. I think the next time that we are available is like months. I were booking into next year for new patients like someway march. It's crazy okay. Go back to the dismissing of the families. Then so you're dismissing families a time because you feel like they are mainly because of the cancellation fee. Now what no. They're just rude like everyone on. Our team is so gracious. And so kind and i mean i hear how they answer the phones. I hear how they talk to patients when they're dismissing them welcoming them into our office. We deserve to be treated like crap. Yes it's an awful situation in our schedule is crazy right now but we are trying to make things work and it's the people who have zero patients okay. So this guy guy on my gosh. Every time he was the variables. What's you made it up. Every bee doo shen. He may be a douche in. Yeah you'll be d- everyday douchen this guy. All my gosh. He had already late showed or or when he does show up. He's forty five minutes late always and men he knows showed or late cancelled so with less than twenty four hours.

"Is so sad tangible. You know that's how i roll. Is i feel like there's so much to tell you about because we haven't spoken is totally. Okay so brian. And i and our family we went to hawaii. Only gosh michael for anniversary no mystery. That was close our anniversaries in december. But this is our first like real family vacation since quarantine ryan to to maui. This was at the end of july. So basically celebrated cody our baby. Who's not who's not a baby anymore. He's like frequent three years old. Gosh yeah the poor kid has never had a birthday either. Like a real Gangster only like five people in the whole until you until we went like more of mine was blown but anyways i wanna tell you this other dining experience because it was so bad so if you were listening to this make sure do not eat at. Roy's in kana. Polly rosen manhole. I saw this argument. Tell you the story you told me. Okay okay so covet right just screwed everything up right so now hawaii you lake you after book out all your restaurant reservations months in advance like literally months in advance. If you are planning on traveling to hawaii you have. There's a good chance that you don't even have a car rental unless you reserved it in months also in advance like there were people driving u hauls because there was no but okay some brian. Of course we didn't really understand the gravity of the situation with preserving everything before. We went and brian when when we did reserve it was maybe a month and a half before we were scheduled to go so we wanted a really nice family dinner one night and it's brian myself are three boys and brian's parents so there's a total of seven of us right those you brian. Okay yeah no. I wish that allowed us carry. Cody kidding howdy. There are seven of us in our party and in hawaii on open table. You can't reserve a party larger than six radio so brian. He made two reservations to try to beat the system. He made one for party of four and one for a party of three. Four plus three will seven days in kapor faster trim but but honestly this was also like on a random tuesday but at four thirty. Pm for dinner like producer early dinner early birds special right. So bryant's like okay. It's four thirty. Who the heck is going to be eating dinner for thirty so we made it in. We get to the restaurant in this douchebag. Michael i swear. I get a lot of dushi people who i guess to have your neighbor. Who's a douche mike okay. We'll talk every day. He'd be douching. Every should be economic l. k. Said this guy. He's like checking in the party us and he notices like okay. There's seven of us and he said okay. I see here though that you made to reservations one for four and when three like the because we couldn't do it online while you have to wait and i have to see what we can do about it. Meanwhile we look around. Roy's there's literally three other parties in this massive restaurant michael three other. The the restaurant is empty. He i need you to step aside on while i help this next couple so a couple walks in after s known the story. You can't even make it up. A couple walks in after s literally to people and he seats them. He checks them in and seats them. Right away at a round table for eight. Okay just keep that in mind. Hold on just. I want you to see the picture. There are lots of empty tables and now he's seats a party of two round table for eight. He makes our party. Wait maybe another five six minutes longer and then he calls us up and he says okay. I was able to find you a tables. And he's like follow so we walk. We walk we walk. We're literally passing probably fifty tables on our way to the back of the restaurant. Michael the the the restaurant in so empty. He continues to walk literally. I think he almost walked us through the back door. And there are two tables of four set up and they are six feet apart and he says okay. One party can sit here and one party can sit there and then we're like okay. We'll just move them together. Because obviously i have three little kids your sons and he's like i'm sorry by the state of hawaii that we are not able to combine these tables and we'd like look at him and we're like so you want our party to split up even though we came in the same vehicle here because of this covert regulation. He's i guess. That's what i'm telling you because you guys entered two parties to reservations on open table and and then brian was getting so heated. Like you could see he side. I'm sorry i feel like. I much more aware of co vid than you are being that i'm a physician and a guy was so right and i am and i said so you're saying that you're basically punishing us for making two separate reservations because this is what you're saying is the only thing that's available at the moment even though we are looking at a completely empty restaurant and the couple of to that you just sat at a table for eight you think that was a smart choice. He's like well that was That that was what we had for them. That's what we had reserved for them for a party of to like we were getting so heated. And we're like you know what we want to speak to your manager said. Well i'm the manager of this location and then we said we're not dining at this establishment. The level of customer service is horrendous. It was so bad that the other three parties that were there including the couple so the couple. We started walking out towards the front. The couple who's sitting at a table for eight. The woman stopped us. And she said what's going on. And i told her. I say we're actually going to be leaving this restaurant because of the level of customer service. We've never been so mistreated before any of our previous dining experiences. He's telling us that we are not even able to combine the two tables and she said well. That's ridiculous here. you can take our table on. Need it like why don't you. Why don't you and your family sit here. And i said all thank you so much. I really do appreciate that. But that isn't the point. The point is we don't want to give this this restaurant our money. See that when she did. Oh yeah everybody's with. Did he knew he was just quiet. Quiet.

"Hi stranger it's been it's been. It's been six months eight days to our. Since you've been anyways is very much. It's been over the last time we spoke. You started a new podcast. You have twins now own a mansion a shat did. When was the last time we reported it was what was it. Twenty twenty like in the middle of a shot at it was in the middle of like quality. Do i think the last time we recorded. My office was boarded up to remember the brian. Yes because the looting. How did i you ever have now. Thank goodness nothing ever happened but we were ready to is crazy. Dang that was less summer and then you spoke that you hired more people honestly. I think i saw a picture of like your team on instagram in i was like i don't recognize anybody would judy anymore. Oh my gosh did you. Did you see that we. We celebrated our four year anniversary. Oh yeah yeah. And i and i have. There are fourteen of us now. For convoys in so crazy how much is your overhead percentage wise like percentage weights. Would you say eighty percent like how much Two hundred percent it to. I'm just trying to hire everybody so that we can just party all the time. 'cause we throw some kinda crazy no our overhead like i feel like i should know these numbers you have to. You have to let me do some research before. I hit record. 'cause you know i don't know any of this off the top of my head. Is that awful to say as a business owner it's awful. I don't know i like. That's what i'm saying. Like i like your your way of everything you know. George and richard in that would be like you gotta know the analytics everything. But i'm kind of your your style like manages to make sure i got money in the bank. Said yeah no we. We have like fifty cents in the bank. We have like fifty cents day. Exit your overheads over eighty percent share. It's i think our overhead is seventy percent not too bad. So then what did you do for your for your anniversary. All in some is fun. Okay so i was debating whether or not i was going to take another limo to napa to bring the girls over but then our team is so big. And they're like you know maybe we can save that for our five year anniversary. All yes a good idea so because we have a new podcast. We have little black dress pod. Of course i was like well. Let's just go out to a nice steak house and the dress code is going to be little black dresses and that was our theme. So i took the entire team to fancy steak house in midtown sacramento and we had such a nice dinner in cocktails in after words after dinner. Omegas case the You would think that a really nice restaurant would be like crank in the a c. Well okay. I think they probably were. They sat our party right next to the bar. Which typically if you have a small group you wanna have like a more private dining experience in towards the back of the restaurant which they did not so and the bar they had joe rogan. Joe rogan was performing at at the state chart. Ask you saw him no. I didn't see him okay. So where where. The the the kings play where it's called doco which is downtown commons. So the steakhouse is inside of the kempton. Boutique hotel it's called the sawyer. So it's it's shares the plaza with the arena thousands and thousands of people so the bar to the restaurant typically. They haven't closed so that they could only serve the people inside the restaurant for the event. I'm thinking they wanted to capitalize on the fact that there are a lot of people wanting to get wasted right before they go see joe rogan so they had the there. There are those Ah glass store. It almost looks like a garage type of door that will swing up also so it was nice it would have been nice except it was freaking balls hot outside so all of us ladies are in our super nice black dresses or makeup is done are hairs did and we are freaking soweto To we asked the manager multiple times. Hey can you like crank. The ac in they did and you would feel the a coming for a little bit but because we're right next to the open bar so yeah we were like fanning ourselves while we were eating revived like this is not is not sexy enemy Girls they have my words. Smells like we were. We were so hot that the seats are made of leather off. Speaking of freaking seats are like this is not cute. I know that women aren't supposed to sweat a man. We were like like literally peeling ourselves off of these chairs and you know like in the age of covert right like nobody wants to work and the restaurants are still trying to see all of these patrons because they've been shut down all the businesses are just trying to survive. Service was slow. Were now sweating our asses off and we literally like literally and they entire dinner was. We're we we almost ran late for our next reservation. Which after dinner we planned on going to the rooftop bar which which we did it's called the revival at the sawyer. It's so nice you'll see downtown sacramento all the lights. And then there's this huge pool in the middle of the rooftop bar and just ample seating. there was just so nice to connect with the girls in just talk outside of the office so that was our four year anniversary is awesome blows the risk. The i was the first restaurant is echo in rig. They didn't have like good a happening. Like knows it. The ac was fine. It was only because we were sitting right next to the bar. And the bar had their their florida's ceiling windows open the outside people. Yes so the line to get drinks. Just outside of the restaurant was so long. Said what the hell. Why can't we sit in the back. You ask a matter though. No do but who. Who does that. Who puts a party of fourteen or thirteen like right in the front.

"But really stop in and congratulate yourself because every stage that you're in is always a hard stage if that makes sense like when i when i first opened i just wanted to get x. Amount of patients. I just wanted to hit these numbers for my first. And i never celebrated the fact that my overhead was still low because my team was small. And and all of that and the now that i'm in this stage i'm trying to think of okay. Do i get another location. Do i build again. Because we're at capacity. But i also think like oh shoot. My payroll is amount every two weeks. My overhead is out of control like we tend to never really be happy where we're at and And it's important just to appreciate it for what it is every every every stage that we're in we should celebrate the milestones that have that we've achieved so that is my one. I guess that would be my my thoughts. were today. yeah what elebrate have you thought about how far you yes i have and it's it really is. I mean it's been amazing. Like colin texted. A group picture of our last baby shower. So one of my girls is leaving Today your last day for maternity leave and then collins texted i. She's like whoa our last maternity. Our last baby shower was for bianca which was two years ago and there were five of us in the photo and now there are fourteen of us in through. Yeah you you've thought about it right like how far you've grown like ashley's grown right not so much smaller co but you. Yes and i'm. I'm giving myself more freedom and flexibility to just do a lot less and be happy with doing a lot less because it's not always about the next big thing we should be content with where we're at my i think Do you feel like that's what. When did you start seeing that recently. When i started therapy which was a skier. Oh really so during the we're still technically during in the pandemic but cove. Ed i think covert really forced us to think about what we want in life and what was making us happy in what was causing a stress. It was a really good magnify here and during covid. When i really thought that mike. Hey i don't wanna be practicing so much. I only want to do what i wanna do. And that. that was my first decision to hire other dogs. Yeah the truman like to be content satisfied to know when there's enough more isn't always better. You know what. I mean in a lot of times. That's the easiest thing to do. We tend to try to throw more at a problem and hopefully it gets fixed right. Whether it's more money more employees more whatever right ran like why is it not fixed but in order to figure that out you have to do a lot of analyzing yeah absolutely and that's hard to analyzing you know what i mean. 'cause then you don't want to blame yourself either even though it probably might be your fault a lot of the times you know. That's good man. That's really really good. Awesome so with that being said ashley. I don't know where we're going to record again. Maybe next week maybe the following week. No hitter miss. I know but If anything siamese out thanks guys for listening to a very inconsistent episode of the making of yeah let us know what you want to hear in terms of smiling co if you want any more details join our group.

"The aspect of it but the the debate here is in in your mind is doing this. Or i mean pulling the trigger on this or dealing with the debt or it's or it's just a small office taking less patients. Yeah so what. Why would you do that one doing the small office. Why did that one. Why is that an option. Because it's less stressful. I i mean. I don't have to worry about increasing my debt load And we can maintain profitability if we just dropped a lower paying insurances. It just seems like less stressful to. I want you wanna do. Because it's less stressful. Yeah and the other one you wanna do because it increases our capacity to grow okay so the other one you wanna do. Because it's i feel like it's kinda like what you want but it's it's harder i think either way you look at it. It's harder because if we eventually take ourselves out of insurances like it scares me to think that we're going to be losing patients. If we're out of network with their plans so then let me ask you what does small and co need right now to be better. I think we need more space more parking. Okay space bar and the guy next to you has moved out right now he built. He built his office. I think they're open now. I sell cars parked in his property. Might god it's been like what a decade he's barely open now generally. yeah basically. Why shouldn't be like the number one fan of this podcast now. He's listening stuff. Okay so then you think you need more space to be better right. I would like more space. Yeah that's it. That's the only issue. I think our our customer service is amazing. If we had more space would just feel like less cramped. We have so many people in our little space. And i barely have a break room. You saw it and we have no parking. But i think from a patient perspective. I think i have an amazing team. A i can't imagine having anything else change when it comes to that. Okay so everything you've been telling me about right like the patient. The business what they needed to be better and things like that which is great right. Let me like you're not now. Let's get a little selfish year. What do you want. Where do you see yourself in a happy place in happy mode. Maybe ten years from now or five. I mean like honestly like realistically like you know. Let's just say like ten years from now. What do you want not so much thinking of the patients. Because you've you've you know the patients are taken care of right now as we speak as we're doing this interview your patients are being taken care of. So what do you want. I want to practice. Clinical dentistry may be two days a week. Only focused on the pas. Medics and invis- line and i would love to be a fee for service practice where we're getting the fees that i believe we deserve and i want to. I want patients who value what we do and know our worst. Okay that's the business side personalize what do you want. I want to take a step back from the practice. Know that it doesn't need me. I can run without me. You're still talking business. Actually what do you mean personal side personal side like personally what you want like. Do you want a you know what i want to. I don't know like some people are like. I want to make a family or i want. You know what i mean. Look like that at all personally. I want to take more vacations. No i really do. Who doesn't want to you know what i mean like. I'm now i want to I wanna feel i. I just wanted to be healthier focus on my health. I want to sit and read a book an uninterrupted like me time so i just one more time to space out and think about what i want. Okay so one when you when you think about you right which is good because like without you. Obviously none of this would happen. I wouldn't even be interviewing the you know what i mean. Nothing nothing smaller cohen. And be here right so think about it. Everything you said for. You is the small fee for service or boutique type of practice. That you know what. I mean that you were you. Drop insurance As you take on more. I guess high quality patients. And then you're like you have more time to yourself it. It's it's there when you think about the business you think about growth and you're like okay. I need to make more space more things more all these things now in ten years. When you're thinking about this let's say you went with the growth side of it. You decided to open up another thing. Do you think you finally be able to satisfy your personal accomplishment. Like i me like i just want to relax to more vacations. You know what i mean and do all these things if you were to do the other thing like have another practice grow more and things like that or now. I think as long as i have a team in place setup yes to the team is right if the team is there and if the systems are in place in yes but i mean it's always harder than more you you have to manage eight to manage in tartu losing change in transition and all that stuff the bigger you get so honestly like i don't know man to me and i know listeners can tell me and be like michael a stupid. You're wrong to me. It sounds like you kind of want. you're leaving a little bit more towards the you know what i mean like the fee for service type. I don't know. I don't know it sounds a little bit like that like but at the same time. You gotta the entrepreneur side where you to could you even could you even just.

"For the year. Right yeah like our. Our collections have been pretty consistent about the two hundred k. Okay okay. that's good so then you you've done the numbers and everything like that right and you're like okay. We can bring on someone else. Yeah well honestly. I'm not a numbers person as you know. I just higher in highland hire as many people as well no but We were pretty high volume now and And i also know that. We're in grossman. And i'm not su- yeah so one of our girls is going out on maternity leave. Actually today's her last day. So having an extra set of hands in the back i think will be less stressful. I think that's the predominant reason why looking for another assistant got okay. And so how do you even bring like. How do you even think about that. The clinical manager thing like. Where does that come from. How does that look if somebody's like he would. I need a clinical manager now while all of our different providers because it's not just the docs and the genesis i also to e of tooth so they're essentially their own provider in the scheduling. Because they're able to handle a lot. Were we're running so many columns of patients. And if i don't have a dedicated person just managing that aspect managing back office. Everything's going to slip through the cracks because you can't always just be in people's mouths and expect the day to be organized and run swiftly so collins main role now instead of being so much chair side. She's taking a step back in an her goal is to organize organiz back to make sure everything's running smoothly. Basically right yes. Gotcha pretty cool to have something like that. And then judy her and judy kind of like oversee like the team leaders right. They're the ones who gets and then right now. How many sincere in growth mode. What are your patients looking like a month right now. You patients We've had anywhere between sixty to eighty six new patients You're gone. It's going good at growing and we're not. We're not doing any marketing. Which is kind of crazy. I mean we haven't really ever done marketing. In fact i'm trying to figure out how to get us out of insurances planning to go a whole well best the plan like i really want to remove myself as an in network provider because one that will make it will definitely fill the associates schedule. More and to like i really. I only want a dentistry. That i wanna do like. I don't wanna. I just wanna do the cosmetic cases in like the full mouse we have cases. How many would you say you guys. You have a like a month. Those cases only have currently like about one case a week which is awesome. That's all. I wanna do what you said you wanted to do. Remember that you're like. I just wanted to dude. You're exactly at where you wanted to be at one point. Remember your whole team. Yeah be happier. Ash is getting no. But that's really really cool like i remember in. I think it was a lhasa. The last before that you were looking at a bigger place to have you found not always looking for a bigger place. Oh man you haven't found it then. No i haven't in. Brian always keeps telling me like you need to figure out what you wanna do. Like is your goal to manage to locations and have an even larger team or is goal to figure out how to remove yourself from the equation. Figure out how to drop insurances and just have a smaller smaller staff and and less less patients coming through the door but still maintain profitability. So i go back and forth depending on the hour that you asked me I really do. And i really do go back and forth between do i increased my hours because i wanna i wanna see more patients again because now i have all this wealth of knowledge in my head that i'm not utilizing more like we just want to focus more on the business in spend more time with my kids. What what do you feel like. You're leaning more towards in in those decisions. I in my head. I really do want a second location and i want the second location to be a bigger location. Because i want my general dentistry to be done there. And i want to use my first location as my smile boutique with because merit a cosmetics. And then hopefully we start incorporating fillers in both talks and i wanna photo studio and yeah so. That's what i want okay. So that's right now. That's what you're you really want right. That's the main thing you want right. Now that's why don't you do that. Well good question. I had looked at buildings and in my area. Buildings are ridiculously scarce. Which makes them ridiculously. Expensive under is something on the market. The last place. I looked at it was about. It was okay. So it's a single stand. Single is a free standing building and it has tenants in the the entire property. Is i believe it's eighty six hundred square feet but i wouldn't occupy all of it. It would only be half of it but the way it set up is we would have to move one of the tenants. Over in order to make a cohesive four thousand square feet otherwise it would be like diagonal from each other which isn't a good workflow. And and so i'm looking at purchasing the building but the building like the purchase price was like i think they were asking two point five two point six and that does not include actually building out a dental office. So you'll know that building a dental office is not cheap so that's my hesitation Because do i really want to increase my dad again. Take.

Death is thing isn't it rarely anyway. I'm probably being a bit facetious with them. Let's see what more this very very polish medium has to say and Was a happy person and while roundabout fifty five to To sixty advantage but this is the twentieth century. Can you honestly expect people to still going believing in ghost in this day and age. Now there's a question and a half isn't it. I mean fabulously the journalist because he could have very easily been like. Whoa done up to the nines. You're clearly very icon question. What you do for a living of course but it didn't he was like don't you think it'd be silly to believe guests and this answer is actually very good very good. Well i think we perhaps believe not in actual guests but the man survives the grave because the too many of us that it's true and things over three million people in great britain believing it There must be something in it and of course there is. Well done mr bosch psychic. I do like that answer. Not necessarily the well. We don't necessarily believe in ghosts part. But i do like that.

"Yes yes that's right This guy thinks scary than the exorcist would be. If selectors pops into the exorcist film will remove the demon possessing reagan and the student activism and poltergeist activity to the nth degree people being mad by demonic forces will remove all of our and instead the exorcist will be a few footsteps few milk bottles clanging and of course the toilet flush. I think we can all agree. These this activity here does make the acussed. Look like mickey mouse being facetious on it. But it did over satellite disney. Let's be honest okay. Anyway now he gets a one of the employees stories. And i like the employees stories because the it seems to be women in these little interviews they seem to be very authentic and the men. Just be well. I don't believe in it's all you know. As long as you've got right and closing down the number bothered brennan way. This is one of the employees stories. And i had a footsteps behind me. How can i stop knows nothing. Nobody there and that kind of that. Continue to up to the top of the stairs so stood for me to you now and then only automated some of the things that i had had to and i thought who could get pushed down the stairs headmaster little miniature to and then i felt a presence suspect somebody quite close to me. Didn't touch me. And then i just started downstairs and i look back again. But they're still. I didn't say anyone until now what you will see. She's a lovely lady and what you will see when the video thing together is when the bit where she says. I could be thrown down the stairs. She as a massive grin on her face like she was really disappointed. Really excited to the fact that she could have been thrown on the stairs. It's like look could it be thrown downstairs thought ground dear then i'll insult the devil himself and see if you'll choke me downstairs full lami working day. Now what you'll hear next is this guy's clear obsession with absolute paranoia and fear about toilet flushes ereli. Most because he's already said that. That makes it scary than the exorcist. The fact that the toilet worst and he just can't let it go other people talked about. Laboratories flushing face when i opened warm. This boy must have Came in here on the scene plus and plus catches stuff on the floor. The party like this on the pane of glass which was across in there. Which is you could see. Very bigness has been smashed across the core. Here it would have to fall down there. You'd expect to just all this was out with everything cleared out of here onto the floor now but anywhere else that goes into this office. I will say they're stuck. I was talking there. He seems genuine and he seems genuinely scared. It's like he's a. He looks like a caretaker a guy and he's clearly in his takes office and is gonna look up fearing faced when the guy says like can anyone else get any and he's like no just many he looks genuinely scared so he's an bit difficult to make out what he'd be saying there. I think party was accents. Part because of the recording equipment in the seventies bought yeah. He's quite convincing. If being perfectly honest now you're going to hear one of the bosses now and talk about someone trying to give like an absolute corporates answer to xs zoom questions. It's amazing listen to this administration to exercise this year. I understand the same. We have a problem that of course that we probably got about fifteen religion the factory. So do we get fifty ministers in. Did we get all the religions to agree on one minister to the exercising the more corporate answer to the paranormal. It's amazing i mean we got an place all the time not to do with exorcisms but it's kind of like can i take days holy next week. Well you can. But there's a lot of people want today's holy if you have to give you a day's holiday then give everyone a day's holiday and therefore what you want to do. Ask everyone if they can all agree. Who should have the day's holiday that's basically what he's gone there with the paranormal. So hats off to that. Ceo of that company there fantastic okay. Let's delve back into the seventies yet. Another interview okay. So next we're going to a knitwear factory in nineteen seventy three years now unlike the swimming pool guy. Who's like i'm going to star in this from. Start to finish in my coffee in my swimming costume baby this one just jumps inventive with staff and stuff however it does have one of the greatest former owners of the companies names. Listen out for it. It will be obvious when it comes on. 'cause i'm going to jump in and mention it but it's amazing anyway. This is one of the employees stories thrill one morning about. What's right into the factor. I'm ooh talking about to sell and one of the guys you stop talking. And i said what's the matter to just live jessica walks in and we're just sorta turnaround in this salt missing. Nothing you cannot say you think of that. Justice rather went down smoke now like i said the elliott. The two women in these interviews seem to be more authentic and what i love about her little speech there is the fact that she doesn't try and like embellish issues and say those a man in the left or there was a figures she's like it wasn't a figure we couldn't make out what it was. It was a shape. It was a shape of smoke and it just went up. It's so authentic shiva saying because it's like she's just literally saying what she's seen it's catchphrase. She's just saying what she says. So yeah she rarely She made me a believer of this little story. We're not going to hear the the boss of the time of that knitwear factory. Tell us a little bit about the history of the place which is very interesting and then we lan obviously the name of the former owner. Well this story goes the in the day it was a knitting mill was one of the largest in the trunk in eighteen nineties j w was recalled nuts mr starr. It was the end of this. Did you get that's right. The former owner was cold. Mr bastard or mr start if you will please please pronounce my name properly. It's a start you don't get many bus styles about these days. Do you know not since the court did you change your name. Now you'll hear on the next part. Unfortunately he met an untimely end. The poll starred committed suicide on the premises in which is now our knitting room. And how did he commit. They only himself in the offices and seemingly overlaid on the same and he's never arrested. All polka. paul starred killed himself over. Lady how very eighteenth century well nineteenth century very like ero. I shall live anymore. I wonder if she said. I can't be with you. Pass start for our sons and daughters will all be starts. Maybe he's like oh right even if we're married before birther be passed our odds perhaps by the way. That's sad isn't it. yes it is. And then you're going to hear next. Is another description of axes in terms of the fact. They've got an existential power in this place and it makes me think in the seventy s accesses must've had no free time because these seemingly everywhere and every northern factory the must like an on-call accessed and as happened in this place they also got an accident can been cold and he's out the next offseason fifty. You really think it's.

"It sunday. Call me a little bit. Unawares here. Because i've just scared the cat because she's scared me. So what's happened is of into the recording room and the corner of me. I i see this little thing. Move an eye shriek. It's the cat tile so my shriek makes the cut ron so we skirt each other and now what you're staring at each other as if to say who's in the wrong here. Let me tell you my feline friend. It's me i'm definitely in the wrong. I apologize cat. Do you accept my apology. Take that's slow. Turn away as a yes. How are you all doing guys. I hope you're all doing wonderfully well. It is sunday. It's a bit of a different someday. This week or patrons know why that is because i to say that i'm ramped at work and snowed under is a complete understatement. That's no information of any use to us at all but it is for the next part because we're going to say now is it means i just don't have time to record an episode today. I really wish i did if i did. It means i'll be doing it literally up midnight after work in solidly for about maybe eighteen hours. Something like that and no one wants to be honest. Nobody wants to fund a little bit of downtime to record a bit of an intro which is this and also record a patriot episode for our wonderful patriots. So i thought to do instead. Guys is doolittle intro for this. And i will play instead a patriot on episode. One that you want if you're not a patriot and obviously if you a patriot don't because you still get a picture on episode today so we will all be patriots for this very special day and it's a one off and i hope you forgive me for having no standard episode out but if you're a patriot is still going to get an episode. And if you not. John is still going to hear an episode that you've never heard before so everyone's a bit of a winner. Petty does yawn. That's right breakfast. And yeah and if you've signed up the patriot. I won't be singing your name in this show of course but obvious reasons but i will in the next show and if you signed up to patron to see what all the fuss is about what you're about to find out rarely go to pitch dot com forward slash. We need to talk about ghosts. That's patriot on dot com for slash. We need to talk about ghosts. I will be over my hectic week next week. And i will be back with you as per normal or as per usual as lawfully side note back and i used to think that as pay usual meant every other time which was amazing for me. Because she's the most intelligent person. I've literally have matt. So when she was like every other time i was like. Oh my god. It's something i know that you don't and it's a very short lived and very cheap victory. But i do hope that you're all staying. Well stay till next week. When will give full improper episode in the meantime. Please listen to care from the past the past With an old patriot. Episode to fully boots. Because i will still always inevitable content out. Even if i can't physically do it myself and for patrons you lucky things will have a normal episode anyway. I'll catch you next week. I love y'all tatty.

"I don't think it has and I don't think it will because especially with expanded playoffs going forward. There's going to be value with winning your winning your division because you're going to get home phone not first round or a buy. You know like there is there's something to be said about just getting in the Nats. Just got in last year. That's all they had to do. They just had to get in and they went on and and want it all. Yeah, you know. and so I think there still is value because You're not questioning seating because if they give those division winners a top a top three seed automatically mhm, then you're good right off. So, I don't know. I've always feel like there's value in winning a division as a Mariners fan. I'm just like just get in. I don't even care if you get swept just to get in that's all I care about, you know, it could be a wife to be be a bit division title, but I don't know and it feels like where you're at, you know as a Yankees fan. You don't want to get in as a wild card. You want to get in as a division winner? Yeah. Absolutely. Right? Yeah, but I think there's still value to it. We're speaking about two different things here. And this is where I find it really interesting you're coming at it from a practical perspective you're saying get into the playoffs new breath New Life magic happens. You never know and there's that's exactly right. You're you're not wrong, but what I'm viewing it as all the flags on the flagpole right like the birth The culture of the the emphasis on the what used to be a pennant race like do you think that that sentiments still exist? I don't think anybody could argue with get in the bath off. So that's you're absolutely right. But I want to talk more. What do you think? Do you think that there's that that that's the fans or the teams or whatever do you think they value the the pennant to fight back the pride? I think that I think they do just because like if you've ever been to a major league game and your team has one or two or three or fifty whatever 15-year whoever your team is, it's cool seeing it..
