I'm joanne jarrett. And i am your host. And today i have with me. Brand girlfriends sean. Tara who. I have been following on instagram and on her blog but she is just needing me for the first time today. Santana is a mom and a wife and a model. And she blogs at shanta mcintyre dot. com sean shontae. Thank you so much for being with me today. I think a mean inviting. Meteors face absolutely will fill in the blanks. What did i miss about who you are and what you do. I guess an important context part hoyas. I played basketball from sixth grade through college. Oh wow it don't really play much anymore. I played division. One basketball decided not to go any further. But i think that that is an important part of the essence who. Am part of why. I can stay so motivated and persevered through things. I don't like to do you learn delay. Gratification ended i and pain tolerance and all the thing. I was a gymnast not in college. But all through high school in blow. And i hear ya yes yes and then were infertility warriors. We've got four children but we struggle with infertility and so after. The first baby adopted a son because he really wanted a large family. I really wanted a large family and battle with infertility for four years before we were blessed with two more miracle babies and so i'm a mom of four also. That is awesome. And how old are your kids now. My kids are eleven eight soon to be six and soon to be four. Oh my gosh. Wow yes oh. My kids are teenagers. I have two teenage girls. So i'm in a different wild and crazy stayed past the them needing me every moment rate rate which the how often not moment. It's going to be here shortly. So if you hear any of her angels in the background just be cool neck natural listeners. White knight occa- so i have been following you for i think about a year. Maybe a little more than that and i understand that you recently quit your day job to focus solely on your modeling career. Can you tell about that. I did really. I didn't. I didn't quit it to become a model. I quit my job. Because i wanted to be a stay at home. Mom awesome but coming from corporate america and having a steady paycheck. That really freaked me out. And so i worked a lot to get some supplemental income somewhere and so modeling was something i did before children and so i just three signed with my previous agency before children so that at least i could say i had a job. Don't worry on the bring. Insulin come here and there at least you. I have a potential to do. So exactly really. I just wanted to be a mom. That's all i really wanted to do. It's so ironic. This whole pandemic thing has really tested. Did you really just want to be a mom do right. You can't even leave a beautiful journey. I've been so blessed by but yes so do model. Instagram is really paying the bills right now as well. Thank god but my my love is is being a mom. Yeah and that show. That's so shines through it all your content. Yeah absolutely your heart for family in your heart for god and your heart for women. Just striving towards wet really lights them up. I think it really shows through so me. Thank you. That's what i try to do because i feel like my own. Instagram journey started. When i was pregnant with my fourth baby. So we got pregnant naturally adopted a baby then tried for four years surgeries. Lots of cd's shots lots of gesture own. If you're in this infertility you'd always talking about And then we got pregnant and we got pregnant with our third baby when the the doctor baby was a year old and so it feels like we've got twins and then i got a new promotion finished my master's degree and within a month in my job. I got pregnant with a fourth baby. Which definitely do not expect ben so i was freaking out at. I reached out to instagram. They didn't reaching out to them. But i was looking for inspiration. Any mom of four. Who didn't like she was crying. Hot mess that's what i was. Show me your otherwise. I don't care if it's a highlight reel. Just show me your makeup and your hair combed. Because i can't do this. You know and so once i figured out i could that i did get so much inspiration from moms. Who don't know who. I am still to this day. I felt like. I owed it to motherhood community to then push that back into the environment that you can totally do this. It's just us freaking out in a little bit of pregnancy hormones and all the things you can totally do it. I love it okay. Let's get to know you a little better by throwing venture rapid fire questions at you. If you had twenty four hours in your home alone with no pressing to do what would you do. I would organize my closet. I know that sounds so sexy. But if you're over thirty that sounds like a really. I was like i can totally relate okay if you could rename yourself. What name would you pick blue. When i was a little girl named maybe dolls michelle. Oh i didn't know that but my mom vividly remembers that. I think michelle would have to be top of the list. Also i think sean tears pretty cool. I might have spelled it slightly different so that people who don't know me can pronounce it right away. Yeah i went for really unique names for my girls. Pretty unique names for my girls. Cause i had four joon gymnastics team. That was annoying. Yes but i also is like i gotta make sure i spell it so people how to say because i don't want my kids cabinet deal with that. Yeah i got sean tony. Like shelton eh. There was a lots of ends of recently on a photo shoots. That might come on. Girl is even close personally. I'm joanne so. I answered a joan joni joanna but you know joe anini i would be like no wait where that come from my gosh. What's your favorite phone will instagram. Gosh i spend way too many hours. They're having unfortunately. I just started cycling. I like to in january. Make an obnoxious goal. Just to see if i can do it in. It's i dunno. It's random i always do something like just that if i actually do what. I'm surprising myself and so this year. My surprise is i wanna do a triathlon and afrikaner ext. I hate to run at. I don't know how to freestyle swim. And i just learned how to road by a couple of days ago and so your and your ambitious and phil might be rap right now is my tax in. That's like a road bike app. That i can ride stationary but still get the simulation of hills and nice. I'll linked to that in the show notes for any of you. People who are just as ambitious dante nine. Have you ever met a celebrity one time. This is random but this is the first thing that popped in my head. We were in hollywood just as blue little kids in just sort of star gazing at the little stars on the floor and little richard pulled up in a limousine and was passing out. Bibles and i remember. He had so much makeup on even as a man. I was like ten or eleven by never at that point in my life ever seen on a woman or man. He had so much makeup on my mom being very excited that it was a little richard and of course i had no idea he was a district member a lot of makeup and his handing books and my mom was very excited so cute i love it. Do you have a favorite joke. My favorite joke is knock knock. Who's there interrupting cow interrupting kowloon. I love it. that's cheesy and i love it. Yes well as you know. The point of this podcast is to tell our most embarrassing funny stories so that we all feel less alone in our imperfections and that people who may see the polished version of us can remember that nobody is as fancy as they look. So what do you have for us today. Might absolute most horrifying to me embarrassing story. I was thirteen and it was probably my second cycle of my life. And i was at a basketball tournament and i didn't wanna tell my mom that i had started my cycle again because you know i've just still uncomfortable with it and so i just put a whole lot of toilet paper and my chinese and kept playing basketball well unbeknownst to me at fallen out on the court and so i ask you a hall win. Something on the court. That shouldn't be. the referee. Blows the whistle stops the game and then goes to pick up whatever it is right whether it be a loose ball or she lays or water but whatever it is and so i'll never forget. It was on the like free throw line area and the ref blows the whistle. And he's looking at this thing trying to figure out what it is and then because he's looking at it so confused down my coaches on the floor looking at it. My coach goes to pick it up and before he touches it he realizes what it is and he liked erupts in like disgust. Oh angry who's that who's of course. Why would we at thirteen gray man for the what my body language look like because i was more to. And so you know. They had to get a whole crude it. Up and disinfect. Like a bomb had gone off in the gym and i was only have mercy. They bring in. The has matt team has matt team and it wasn't even a lot of blood because i was thirteen. And oh airy okay. I want to go back and hug thirteen year. Old shanta and tell her in the future there will be so many worse period All the girls standing on this court every one of them will have one eventually right louis and then i want to go to the wrath and that coach and i wanna shake their shoulders and tell them to be better human beings better adults. Do better adulting rewrite. It was one of the girls on the court. Lord you've got these young teenage girls who are embarrassed to be alive. Now they're bleeding. And i like to talk about it and it's so hard i remember just thinking this is it. I already thought. Life was really hard. And now i have this to deal with and i'm gonna lose my mind. Yeah no it just was like uncomfortable pastime for me. I didn't really feel like life was over. I felt like one more thing growing up over. S like straw. That broke the camel's back. I don't feel like a woman. I feel like an inconvenience human. Oh my gosh you poor thing a so what did you do did you. Just keep playing. We just kept playing. I was almost relieved because it wasn't as much blood as i thought it would be like. Oh we're good. I can finish this game with what is your most recent embarassing moment or is it to fresh. Don't share anything that you're not ready to laugh about. I think the reason why. Nothing's popping off. The top of my head is because it takes a lot more embarrassed me. But i think what i should be embarrassed about it recently. Oh i guess. I got to. So i've been starting cycling and my husband is one of those you don't take baby steps in. So i got the full gear. I've got the clip in shoes and the skinny by didn't the but pads the whole nine and because he's really into cycling. I should say also okay. So he knew how to gear you up. Yes and part of the reason why i decide to triathlon is because i thought if i have to buy which my husband loves this and so i feel i have to at some point entertainment sports that he likes Then i should at least do something that i want to do. And so that's how the triathlon was born So we went on our very first ride and we crossed a busy intersection and i did not clip in successfully and fell very hard on them and i felt so good that the patine fell off and you each purple bruise on my bottom but traffic stopped and people were jumping out of their cars to make sure that was okay. I should have been very embarrassing but was more mad at my husband. Like how come you didn't tell me. This was a hazard of riding bikes. Didn't know research on this. I did not know that. I could fall very hard. This was a risk. I didn't know. I was putting myself in jeopardy and these people you could fall like going down a mountain. I didn't you could ball starting at intersections go. Yeah oh shoot. Yeah well it showed you the kindness of strangers right. They were all worried about you. Know i jumped out of their cars quicker than i could even realize they jumped other cars. I thought shadow with over me. You're like what's happening right now. And what does your husband do. Well he immediately got this video that turkey. Oh man oh man he did but then when the people jumped up faster than him he he put it away because he realized i'm probably not looking like the best husband always are concerned and i'm videotaping. And then he's like oh. I should've told you that this. And that and this yeah buddy. Like he's he said a lot of. I should've told us the job. I don't remember. Because i was just mad like there was a list of. I should have told us on the floor. Region just mad. It was a it was a whole team. You know what sometimes the anger supersedes embarrassment. Which i think is a good defense mechanism. But the other thing is you know when you're a grownup and things happen it's like well all you. People are so welcome because now when fall on your face in front of you know people at the mall. 'cause you slip on the floor or whatever you can remember this lady in the middle of the road absolutely remember this lady. I know i'm like how can we have never seen anybody pulling off their bike. While i'm driving this this seems like a common occurrence but have you ever seen anyone. Just fall off their bike. The road i'm thinking i don't think i have. I don't think. I know plenty of people who fallen off their bikes. But i've never actually been present at the when it happens every degree then the next day we went on again and i fell again but this time because my husband had after i fell. He taught me all these fancy had signals. So that i wouldn't fall again. And so when he got to the end of the street he was supposed to do the hand signal for stop but he said he just assumed that i saw him stopping. And i didn't and so then i fell right before we got to the freeway. But this time you you take again because my husband loves videotape. And so you can hear on the videotaped me saying mike. What are you doing. Oh i'm gonna fall. And then i just crashed out and i go mad. But that's why i feel like it's gotta be a little common cause i was too too so i cannot be okay. I think what are the beginners to afraid to show themselves in daylight or what. Maybe you're just more than everyone else. I'm probably a little stupid to don't writing in the darkness when you're a beginner i mean i think that's just in another. I don't wear these. People are but my husband used to mountain bike a lot and when we were first dating. He felt so bad that he was like covered. Road rash All over i can remember. I used to think they still are his shoulders or so beefy and he pulled his. This was before we had been dating for very long. I was a medical student assignment. He pulled his shirt down his shoulder to show me this huge road rash and all i could think was gosh like the shoulder so strong lately i mean. He used to fall time and people do so. I don't know i think. Here's here's what. I think you and i are such careful drivers. We are watching the road. I don't know that makes extra careful and we're not. We're not aware of our surroundings. Acid peels over on a bike. If we're missing it totally noticed that have been told many times. I waved at you the other day you were driving. You obviously didn't see me like i'm so clueless as do you happen to have a life hack that you think that listeners would love. What's something you that makes your life amazingly easy that you were so excited when you discovered something that i've just started doing is i call it power our for my kids. It didn't start off for an hour. I always call the power hour even before it was an hour long and they have to stay in their rooms and play or dance or color or whatever it is they wanna do. They know that they can not leave the room for an hour. And so during that time i can do whatever it is that i wanna do. I can exercise. I can sleep. I can cook. I can harvard meditate at whatever it is but i started with just fifteen minutes power hour twenty and just sort of stretched it out that they figured out that they could manage their own lives and i was thinking just recently. I think i want to stretch it out even more and go. Maybe our half hour forty five minutes. It has changed my life because all of them simultaneously will leave me alone in an hour for mama. Four with little is like a golden gapped during the day. And my littlest six out. So that's not even her naptime. Oh so learning that skill even though she's napping so she's napping and doing power Have you ever experienced a crazy coincidence that you can think of and tell us about. I would say just meeting my husband. Actually because his whole family is probably two blocks away from where my grandparents live But we didn't meet until we moved went to college which was four and a half hours away from where we both grew. That's awesome yeah. It's because i should have gone too much core university that i went to. But it's amazing that you let eighteen year olds decide where they're going to study for the next four years. Somehow it worked out that. I think it was a little serendipitous that he and i both went to the same college and then ended up being married and living happily ever after i love it. Yeah that's awesome. So where'd you go. We went is no statement. No shade against president but i was accepted to every ivy league school or was really great. Gpa and i was good at basketball and literally. I turned down cornell and brown and yale and harvard. Literally all of those universities. Oh i was so afraid to be nerdy. 'cause i was already in high school and i never heard of anything like no. I'm party girl. Watch me go to fresno and what. I didn't want to keep that legacy. I've lived in early life. I don't want to keep doing that. Just want to see what like real life people. I want to be invited to the parties or at least be around them. I just felt like herbert would be boring. and so i just said no straight faced. I don't care how many times you guys call me. I'm not going ivy league. And instead i'm going to go where there's really great football and at the time frozen state was up coming and their quarterback david carr who made the cover of sports illustrated that year in its said fresno question mark and i just thought this sounds like a good place and their team was good but not so great that i couldn't play starter as a freshman awesome and i just felt like this is going to be home. And in retrospect i'm like why did i go to california state school and turned out of all these private school. That was so stupid but it worked. Now you're choosing based on stupid things. Like i literally was looking at the football rosters of the schools. Yes yes how. Many potential men gonna marry on this roster. i was. I had moved from south carolina to reno nevada which was basically like moving from the garden of eden to move being to the surface of the earth. So i'm going somewhere green. And that's all i care about so i ended up in seattle and it was green but it was also cloudy. The whole time i was there i had visited in august and it was gorgeous but never there in august two grant because i went home during the summer symptom. Yeah i should make that decision at such a big decision no fence in eighteen year old nails. But i wasn't what you've been loving lately that you think the listeners would love to so i i love that meam that says you own that britney spears village you need a night serum but and so i've been loving hyler on a gas. I know this is probably not what you were thinking. But i definitely had few britney spears jumpsuits. I like to use a liquid vitamin c. I feel like that has done quite a difference for brightening but for plumping. I think nothing does the job like heireann acid and you can acerra mask. It doesn't matter. But i think if you are not using onic acid. I don't care if you're twenty. You are missing out message. Mailing what you're currently using all linked to it in the show notes. Okay that sounds good. Company will be like what just happened. I know we all want to look like a watermelon. Like it's like a sleep mask on. I link get to you but it smells glorious and it goes on like you're at a spa and then you get to sleep in it and than you wash up in the morning and it's been really nice. What is one surprising thing about you that nobody would be able to tell just by looking. I'm very shy really. I know i mean. I'm not uncomfortable talking in front of people. I've definitely been keynote speakers at a million events. And i think that's the basketball in me that got me comfortable do not but if i ever had the choice i would never be in the front. I think part of it is that being six foot tall. I don't hide very well. And so i know that guy. Don't show up to a party and think please. Everyone disturb me. But i know that it's going to happen so i have to had on a big girl face but would so much rather blend. Just be in the background and no one noticed me really what i. That's another one of those skills that you i'm sure you developed because i'm super shy to to the point where my mom had to kind of. Teach me how to talk to people. And now here. I am interviewing. She's like if you told me when you were little girl that you were going to be so outgoing. I mean i'm so outgoing. But i'm also shy and i also get worn out you know if you're an introvert you can be social but then you get worn out so then are it's you have to really pick and choose what you let were you out. The pandemic has been such a mess blessing for me. I know extrovert won't ever ever understand. But i'm like max capacity at any store i go to. Nobody will be close to me in line. I just wanted as you really have to stay home. And no one's going to judge that. I've been in my house for the last two months like i am in. I mean virus could kill us at any point and my husband's a first responder and you know my show. No but you have to look for silver linings. I feel like. I've told several people that this holiday season was so weird for us but it was my favorite in a way because there were no social obligations and where i love a good thirty but after three or four good parties. I'm fried mike. It's get my crappy leftovers and that's not fair and my husband. Yeah i've learned better how to modulate that. So i don't get fried as easily but yeah if it's automatically done for you then you don't even have to make those choices you know put together. I don't have to even pretend myself. I think it's interesting to now being that my a big chunk of my livelihood is social media and being extroverted f. I when i started this journey. Piazza started this journey. Because again i knew that. I wanted to be a stay at home. Mom and i saw on good morning. America when i was pregnant. My last baby that you could be paid for instruments equate. What tell me more about this. Because i was trying to look for an exit plan for my corporate job. Since i had my first baby. I realized that if a trade was be uncomfortable and sharer who you are authentically to get the ultimate goal of being home with your kids and present with your kids that sounded like a fair trade to me and weird thing is sometimes do. Forget that i'm speaking to tens of thousands of people because it does very intimate that i'm just talking to my cell phone but then i'll see people out and about and they'll be like sean. Tia house this. And i'm like oh details. Yeah are consuming this. I remember one time. I was watching my niece. Watch my stories in my house. And i got sizzle overrun feels like oh my gosh. There's people all over the world what you do. Nothing like weird but also all they do. No they didn't. I couldn't be home with my babies. So yes i love it. And here's the other thing. I think introverts still crave connection and so for me. Social media has been in amazing because it's connection without direct interaction so i can have more connections worn out. Do you find that a little bit. I think what social media has done for me is. Just keep me inspired. I don't know if you've pays can relate but i love to watch the workout videos. I don't always do them. I do to inspire much home. Like eight thousand pushups. I'm like yeah girl. You did that. And so i think i try to keep my feed with things that are continuingly inspire me. I'm not moving oration. That's left social media. What topic or upcoming event or mission or project are you excited about that. You don't wanna miss out on sharing with our listeners. I always do crazy things at the new year but also my birthday is in december and every year i try to gift myself something meaningful and something that what do i think. I'm worthy of taking a chance on that. Nobody else would really back me on. And so fifteen. Years ago. I started a modeling agency on my birthday And that road. I wrote that way for probably twelve year old. No guess fifteen years just closed at. Because i just i'm ready for the next adventure and i'm starting a clothing line called change c. h. a. n. j. diplomatically and just yoga and workout gear that i love and i'm so excited about it and i'm also really working hard to make it a mommy and me mine which you're totally sneak peek of that because i probably won't announce that it's mommy line until about three months after my line goes live. Could i'm just. I'm so excited because lit truly things that i love. I could not that. I wanted. And so i was like self because it's my birthday again like it's time let's make this and so i have traveling yoga mats because i've been looking so hard for one and i couldn't find one Workout sets with really cute unique designs. And i'm just really excited about it. So you design these clothes and you're having manufactured and selling them online. I'm so excited about it. I am going to be watching change.

How To Stop Asking For Permission To Show Up In Your Life and Take Charge of Your Dreams

"When you get absolutely certain about something you like. I'm gonna do this then. What happens is it comes together. It does now i do. I'm gonna do. This sounds different when you go. I'm gonna do this and the opportunity comes up and you're like i don't have the money no no. You weren't certain. Hey i can do my podcast. Yeah she's driven. Which is really the number one podcast for entrepreneurs who are really wanting to like consume great content on the go on a run. Go out for a run while watching listening or watching this s really listening to this podcast or people who are in corporate and have a career and they're like they want. They've always thought that they have a calling for being an entrepreneur but really don't really know how to put all the pieces together or what they should sell so welcome so this episode. That that we're going to give to you right now. Is on my hardcore business facebook page so you can always watch. It live on our hardcore business. Facebook page. Go live monday through friday. Please come subscribe to that page and be with me live in the morning at seven. Am but until then you can watch a rerun one of our more popular reruns and i hope that you enjoy it so thankful to be here to talk about this conversation around leadership in the conversation of when you've built an ecosystem around you that that people don't support you or that people maybe don't trust the fact that maybe that you're gonna follow through this time because maybe in the past you started things and for whatever reason you weren't able to pull it through. Maybe you had a situation like. I just had where my i got a phone call. And my mother was being rushed to emergency Or maybe you wrist your money on something and you know it was the wrong thing and it didn't come together or maybe you know you lost your courage. It's you felt so much stronger when you wrote things down in a journal but at the end of the day the journal didn't really create the journey that you thought you were gonna you're going to have in your life in other words. The path wasn't as straight as you thought and the vision that you had. Well you didn't take account for all the road bumps along the way that you were going to have to encounter some solar to jump on because you know as we coach thousands of people. That's not me just saying that. We really do coach. Thousands of people hundreds of people every single week and i get to hear the stories. So for instance. I just heard a story for one of our coaches who is sharing of two women that have conversations with their husband to build their business to the next level and bolted. These women it was. It was a breakthrough for them to stop asking for permission to grow right and so there was this great message from one of our coaches and she sharing you know. She remembers when that was her where she would say. What do you think about this. What do you think about this. And and she'd wait for the approval of her spouse to say whether or not like wait. Are they happy about this. They not happy about this to the approved. They not approve before she would go forward and she remembers that there was one point in time that we were doing. This endurance challenged. the course. doesn't matter but we're doing. An endurance challenge and our coach now went to her husband. Said i have to do this like i have to do this. Give me give me sixty days to make up the money that i invest in this course that she was doing anyway. Long story short. She actually created the money in sixty days. But the breakthrough was not in the course. She took it was. Actually the breakthrough happened before. She took the course. She became the type of leader that went to her husband and she made an agreement with him. She didn't just beg and plead for him to pay for. She didn't like asked for his approvals. she didn't get in a fight with about it. She actually went in with the level of determination. That i'm going to do this. You know when you absolutely certain about something. I'm going to do this. Then what happens is it comes together. It does now. It i can do. I'm gonna do. This sounds different when you go. I'm gonna do this and the opportunity comes up and you're like i don't have the money no no. You weren't certain. Because i'm gonna do this without a doubt means that you don't ask money for permission you don't ask your spouse for permission and let me open this up pseudo. I don't get anybody who misinterprets says you. Don't ask on timing if it's if if it's not if it's positioning to do this let me go back to the spouse thing. I have a spouse. We've a very great relationship. And i say i said to my husband. I set up the agreement right at the beginning and the agreement was that i will never stop you from doing anything that you wanna do. And you don't get to stop me in actually said to him if you ever asked me to give up my business then your choosing out. I'm not let me explain. Not even deeper. I don't neglect my family. And if i did. We would have another agreement that we'd work on him build to not neglect our family because building a marriage building. Business building your fitness. It's all built. Which means that. There's lots of imperfect moments but there's an area. That can be really proud in the area. That i really do take off five months a year. I really do take off the last week of the month. And i really do take off weekends. I worked this saturday which was so rare. I mean it was so rare for me to do something like that might happen. three times. a year I really do take time off. And i go twice a month to my son's school now is my commitment to be able to spend the day with him twice a month at school like where i'm sitting in all day you know. I didn't have a mom that did that. Not that she didn't want to but she worked at nine. Am to nine pm job and didn't understand that leadership is actually the thing that changes everything not making more money. Make more money when you actually start working on your leadership. The reason why our coach fresh did financially and continues to crush it financially is because of the fact that she actually stood up and said. I'm gonna do this. And she made an agreement with her husband so when this story is going back and forth in our coaching throughout this morning. Another story comes up. And it's right after. Our coach shares her story about these two women. Who have this breakthrough around really stepping up not stepping up to their husbands up to themselves to actually be the type believe that that actually enrolls their husband being like in agreement a new agreement right and so right after. That story comes out another one of our coaches steps up and says oh. I have the opposite side of that story. I have a story of a woman. And i even brought this down. His exact words were just talking to a woman yesterday. She was such a brilliant woman. Like this is my coaches. My coach saying this about somebody's speaking to does she. Such a brilliant woman and she has a desire to build a business but her husband is not enrolled at all and her spending any more money to build a business or any more time because she's failed at everything that she's done so just so you know. Great leaders will fail as many times as necessary. They will fails many times necessary. And the minute that you break through a ceiling. Somebody else's building another ceiling on top you because people have their belief systems about what you're capable of but the truth is is you're capable of a lot more people of scene. I know i got more inside me. I know you got more inside you. So the truth is is any any limitations any judgment any judgment. I use it like like critical judgement criticism but like they've got a good reason to believe it right so any of that any of that type of thought process from somebody else is just a ceiling pulling but the truth is is you have to keep breaking these ceilings so so Our coach says houses at world inter spending any more money on this business because she's failed at everything she's done. And so she. Her breakthrough was her breakthrough. Was i'm not going to impose a my husband anymore. I'm not going to impose on my lover anymore. I'm not gonna impose a my parents anymore. I'm not gonna impose on anybody anymore. And she took action to become the provider role of her own income. She took responsibility to become the provider role of our own income. So here's what. I keep hearing. When i was hearing this morning i keep hearing like. I'm like you know. I think it's powerful that this realize that. She doesn't have to go to somebody else for money. She can create it. I love the idea that somebody else's breakthrough is stop asking for permission to show up in your life right. Stop asking for permission. Nobody has like if you if you want people to support you. Then you're going to have to create a track record in the next couple months of whatever you do come together will. The only way that that happens is that you follow through and so you got to manage your emotions so that you get up and go to the gym even when you don't want to you get up and do sales calls even though you don't want to you get up. Do facebook lives. Even though you're absolutely afraid to get up and you do the work that you know you have to do in order to create the result that you want even though you don't feel like it. So there's nothing more heartbreaking than i see entrepreneurs out there and and or people that want to become entrepreneurs and they. They're so stuck in a limiting belief about what they think. Their identity is that they short the short circuit their ability to actually realize that money is easy to make. It just means you provide something that somebody else is feels as valuable so that could be teaching people how to organize their home. That could be teaching people how to be a better parent. Do you have to have a parenting certification. No no you don't you don't need to have a cert. There's no better credibility than you were already good at something so sometimes people need to just actually stop looking for your business to be your passion and by the way. I'm not saying you can't be passionate about your business. I love coaching. I love it. I love coaching a knack for it. I just love it. I really do. And now my life is evolved. All you really enjoyed training. And so at and i have a knack for it and i've developed in sharpened that nat and so what that what that looks like at the very beginning is i used to be the girl that gave a lot of advice to my friends and my family. I was the big mouth and so you have to look at your children. Look at yourself look at your friends and instead of constantly. criticizing what. We're not start looking at what we are right. We are all a miracle walking. We're a miracle emotion every single one of us the fact that we made it to life on the planet is such a wear miracle in its own and so there's no way that you were meant to be criticized or to criticize other people and if you wanna change your environment you have to become a light you have to be a miller lite and as you become a light it means that you're actually walking in the identity of who you know you are so i just wanted to do this. Live and i just wanted to open up the possibility the possibility that you're not at the end of your story the bus ability that that this whatever stuggle. You're in right now i mean. I hope you're in one. I'm in one. I'm always in one. I hope you're in a struggle. Because the struggle that i used to have in my marriage created the relationship and the friendship that i have now and i'm not done. I'm not done without marriage. It's not if i'm not done. There's more in my husband. That i have not been able to tap out of him and i don't know there's more me that he doesn't know there's just more to like who we are as human beings that we don't know about each other so i my intention is to never stop learning about who the man is that i married right and then and then i'm going to struggle with my business. It's growing so fast. And and you know i just i have to up level different leadership quadrants inside the company which is under having and so. I know you're going to struggle in if you're not then please you need to do some soul-searching on playing bigger game because you should be in a struggle and so instead of looking at the struggle in all of this is the complaint. I have realized that this is our story. You're the hero. I'm the hero of our own stories and in that means that we're creating something right now. So how you create it. Are you going to create it with a good attitude. Even credit with a bitchy attitude. Are you gonna created where everybody can't stand to be around you because you're so bad under pressure or are you going to look at this pressure like like noticing everyday like have the discipline to actually right at the end of every day. Five things you achieved in a day whether it's personal business. Whatever comes out of you and start. Anchoring yourself in the light so that the people around you don't have to suffer as your walking through different pressure point moments because the chances are you're probably never gonna stop walking through pressure. I just haven't met somebody that hangs out around my pages or around our community. That is it somebody that keeps getting inspired to do more with their life and so that means that you either get great with pressure or give up right you get great with pressuring to give up. I just don't think you've given up yet and so if you haven't given up then the way we deal with pressure has to be done in a way that actually allows people be em- pleasure around us so that they keep supporting us the way you build a thriving community of customers clients and family and friends is to be the person that lists people up when they're around you and i don't mean being like a pollyanna i mean genuinely in your gut in your heart like your heart's clean because of the fact that you are anchored in. What are your achievements every day. It's really easy to see what we don't create an what what we're still working on. But that's because it's drawing our attention because we're supposed to be working on it. It's it's it's it's it's it's the part of our story that is called our legacy but like if not anchored in what you're creating along the way then you're going to be miserable and if you're miserable you're either going to quit or people are going to quit you. You're either going to quit or people are going to quit. You and i don't want you to be alone. You know what i mean. I just don't want you to be alone. The bible says that the person who is an isolation. That's the that's the scary. I'm not saying the scripture but it's that that's the dangerous part like pray for the person that gets up and nobody's around them and they're by themselves. You want to be the person that gets up or when you get lost you have people that come chasing for you to find you to pull you up so i'll leave it at this final last thing This is more of just a an awareness online right now. A woman showed up at my house yesterday that there was a fake account that was put up under my name and we see this all the time. Unfortunately they take pictures of me. They take pictures of my son. They take pictures of my family and they report it to facebook. Facebook would not take down this page They usually do and instagram. Has been credible at it. I don't know why facebook just would not take down. We had multiple people report. The site as shonda e sumter while he is not my middle name and so and then they put all my stuff up anyway. Long story short. They defrauded a woman of a couple thousand dollars and they pretended to be me in her chat. She'd noticed that it didn't sound like me And they basically ended up sending her leg and she ended up paying it. And although i'm not responsible for that at all I ended up giving her her two thousand dollars back yesterday. And i can't do anything about it by people. Were defraud me all. They pretend to be me online all the time. And i would just say you know you guys. Don't give your credit cards out online and I'm not. I don't have multiple different facebook accounts. have multiple different instagram accounts. I have one account under my my business. Name here hardcore business and i have my profile name on clubhouse shanta sumpter and clubhouse agenda sumpter on instagram and not selling bitcoin. I'm not. I share things about real estate on here. But i'm i i sell leadership and business coachee and so it's really important that if things are happening to over and over and over again our people reaching out to you get on the phone and talk to somebody before you just go ahead and give your credit card information out This woman can't get her money back. They're still trying to reach out to her yesterday. The police just tell her she has to go to like a a federal investigation. It's like anybody knows of anyway to clear stuff like this. Please posted on the chat here so that we can see but it's just unbelievable how little there is in the system to be able to help us with things like this. Please know that. I'm not trying to sell you bitcoin. Because there's somebody running around trying to get your guys stuff your money and it's not me okay. And so i don't operate like that and so Just know that in no that and keep yourself. Keep your stuff safe. Don't click on links that has been sent by group tax You know from people like just. Don't don't click on things just whenever i get a group tax and there's a click like a a leg to pick. I don't click on it because it's so easy for people to hack our system so also double it's annoying but we have double double authorization on all of my account so if somebody on my team goes into one of our count it text messages via code that i send them to be able to get in to our accounts and so i know it's a pain in the ass but you really should do these things because i knew my account wasn't getting out but i can't stop people from pulling stuff online and creating accounts in and if your accounts get big enough people going to do it to you they take your products or services. They resell them online. It's just unbelievable what people do But so i just wanted to share that with you guys. Because i felt really sorry for this woman who again. She's she's lucky. I sat my house. And i said have the money to give her and you know. She borrowed money to be able to invest in something that she was. She was motivated by me teaching online. And somebody else exploited that motivation and took her money and stole her money and so I just wanted to share that just two. I'm not rich. i don't. I don't prospect in your inbox guys not in your inboxes prospecting you. That's not meet so somebody. If a girl by the name of faith reaches out you. She's on our team. Name is suzanne which is ju- she's on our team But i don't i don't prospect You guys in your inbox as it probably could make a lot of money boots on what we do sell anyway. Lots of love to you if anybody knows any insight on how to help that woman or anybody else Was cyberfraud online. Just definitely take a moment and posted on my on the comments section and everybody also be really powerful knows somebody that is battling with their identity not fraud identity but badly with their identity of asking for permission to grow their businesses are asking for permission to to show up bigger than just take a moment and share this.

"So today we're going to do something a little bit different. A morgon talk about deals with how to cope with our social anxiety or indeed Any mental health or stress Issues that we might face in our lives home and a lot of that. Believe it or not can be mitigated through meditation. Now like some of you. I was very I i didn't like meditation. Didn't like the word meditation. I thought it was New age and You know when you say meditation involved with you know other words as far as doing yoga which i do and then Dealing with Hippies or whatnot. A bunch of stereotypes that i was ignorant of when it came to meditation. So we're not go talk about just any meditation we're gonna talk about biblical meditation and biblical. Meditation is learning to fill our minds and mouse.

According to all that is written within it for then you will make your way prosperous and you'll have success. Mitigating on the promises of god is something we are called to his believers I need replace my thoughts with his and my thoughts are very via. Thoughts are definitely not gods thoughts. And i need to have that meditation to not only focus on lord and what he wants me to do but also to cleanse my soul in the morning or at night or whatever you choose to your meditation so that actually you'll be able to be a bit less stressed Have less anxiety For those you who are new to it.

Comp- renewed medicaid meditating pivots around three learnable skills intention. attention and observation intention is Meditation is skilled that must be developed. Therefore you make most must make time in your busy schedule. Attention is being press or the most effective tools as been found in our stressful world. Health folks seeking mental change their lives to teach them how to breath and other words. You breathing will when you breathe. You're breathing with the cleansing breath when he breathe deep from your diaphragm euro. Almost changing the way you think everything slows down. So as we meditate you'll realize how through breathing everything slows down and almost as time slows down itself. Through the meditation you breathe. You focus on the present moment now. Understand thoughts will come. Let thoughts calmly thoughts go but if you focus on the lord during this time on what the board wants for you then i promise you. You will have an effective meditation and the last is as i said observation now. Observation is sort of taking a short scriptural phrase and using it as the sinner or per focus such as the joy of the lord is my strength. The peace of god have mercy lord. Jesus by his stripes. I appealed can do all things through christ. I am precious. In god's eyes. Fear not for i am with you. Speak these phrases mentally to yourself with your breathing and becomes especially powerful when you find a scripture phrase. That uniquely applies to your life and began to deepen the meditate on it. Now again like i said You're gonna have a lot of thoughts invade when you meditate but if you meditate and you breathe. Then i guarantee that if you've continue to meditate every day throughout your life i guarantee that you'll not only develop a closer relationship with the lord but you'll also bring your stress level down your anxiety level down even maybe to appoint the dismantle.

It's quiet there's not loud noise it could be outside it can be inside A park is a wonderful place to meditate Inside a quiet place a comfortable place. The home is a great place meditate not on your bid Basically because if you lay down in my fall sleep well but when you meditate you had to keep your mind active so what you need to do is after you Getting this comfortable decision then. Spend the next three minutes meditate Going gonna play some music. And what i want you to do. I won't to breathe deep from your diaphragm. You breathe through your nose out your mouth break deep through your nose and out your mouth and do this.

This show wouldn't still be around if it weren't for listeners. Like you so. I am truly grateful to have such a fantastic community before we dive in. I wanted to share some exciting news last week. I made another appearance on the. Johnny talks podcast. This episode was all about how to spend money guilt. Free and the interview is worth. Listen i am not the main guest for this one. So you won't see my name in the title but jonah thens main interview in this episode. He invited a few friends such as myself record their own money tips. So you're going to hear a familiar voice.

Financial wellness is a huge part of our overall wellness. And i think it's going to be a really great conversation now. Switching back to this week's episode this one is especially timely. And it's one that you're really going to love. I had the chance to connect with dan and shanta sullivan. The founders of my diesel physique. My diesel physique is a six week fitness challenge group. But as you'll learn in this episode. It's about a lot more than just fitness. Dan and chande are a husband wife duo and a total power couple in the wellness space. In this episode. We talk about the power of progress over perfection letting go of that all or nothing mindset that we tend to have when it comes to our health goals and how our physical health goes hand in hand with mental health and of course because we can't leave out the wanderlust part of wellness and wanderlust. Dannon shanta also talk about their move to the virgin islands and their own. Nothing traveled the world philosophy. I was so inspired by our conversation.

And as you'll find out they even have a scheduler on hand who can help you figure out when actually schedule those workouts into your day. So i think that's so important.

I will let our guests fill you in so without further ado. Let's get started. I think you so much for joining me. Wellness wanderlust today. Thank you so much sadness excited. I am so excited to be here in. Have you here. And the timing couldn't be any better. I think with back to work for so many of us at this time. Can you each tell our listeners. A little about yourself. Your wellness journey mining shindo sullivan. I met my husband nine years ago. And he taught me so much about nutrition and wellness and fitness. I actually struggled with eating disorders my entire life. I had believe me anorexia and binge eating disorder. So i would go from one hundred and thirteen pounds to one hundred and forty pounds up and down. I struggled with mental depression. Anxiety insecurity and i just felt like i was in this prison and up my mind that i could not escape when i met my husband And he showed me that there is another way besides starving yourself. there are workouts. You can do that. Don't make you feel like you're going to throw up your heart. It's going out of your chest ones that you can actually look forward to islam. My life truly began to change. And i decided to study and follow my passion. It's i tell people it's it's crazy. How your pain in your life can actually become your purpose and for me that the case and my ultimate goal with my be physique was to bring up peace there people in a allow them to see that you can live a healthy lifestyle. You can love yourself inside. And out. Without being in a prison of starvation or crazy workouts. That's right my name. Is daniel sullivan. And i'm the owner of my diesel physique and i started this fitness journey a bow i could. I could go on forever but i've always worked out. My family has been pretty healthy. Since i was in grade school kindergarten in the only reason that is because my mom actually had a ten percent chance of living. She had cancer and my dad made funeral arrangements. The entire nine yards. I actually lived in. Md anderson That hospital lived over there for a year and my mother. They gave her a ten percent chance to live up to three years and she swears to this day. That nutrition saved her life. I mean she juice she ate good. I mean she juice to the point of so much carrot juice that her hands turn orange and she refused chemo. She refused radiation. She wasn't going to go down that road and moms one of the strongest people. I've ever met in my life and i definitely one of my idols. And you know that is one of the main reasons i started. These groups is seeing her transform from being on her deathbed to getting healthy just off of nutrition which was absolutely insane was mind blowing to me and it you know. I grew up wanting to be a professional athlete. I grew up wanting to be a sports agent. You know and all this other stuff here we are. You know twenty years later in here. I'm a nutritionist. And you know it's definitely my calling and that is one thing that i want to teach. People as nutrition can help with so much sickness. Depression anxiety the whole nine yards. It helps with everything. And i want to change the world. One person at a time and make everyone healthy and that is the goal with my diesel. See i think that is so incredible and inspiring both of your stories. I think you know so often when we think about wellness and health we really approach it from a place of restriction and yes sell patriot and especially. I think there are a lot of women that listen to this show and so many of us struggle with body image in relationship with food and i find so often i am the healthiest when i eating real foods that came from the ground that i know the source of where they are and your mother's story is so inspiring while just a little side note as a child. I was really sickly. And i we juiced and i ended up being. I was an orange child for a little will. Change your skin tone. It's insane how does that but you know it's i wish you know in a don't go against what doctors say you know. I'm not that person. But i will tell you. I am a firm believer that nutrition can save your life in exactly what you're talking about eating things that are grown from the ground. You all natural things to all of that helps. And there's just been this misconception that we have to take a pill. We have to do chemo. Treatment radiation. We have to do certain types of treatment in order to get better which in my opinion is false in a lot of it can be done with. Nutrition and health. Difference between attrition and medicine is that medicine is usually to treat symptoms q. And the difference between nutrition is it can cure you. It's amazing and it's been proven. I mean our bodies were designed to heal themselves. But what's happened over the years. Our food has become so processed and so contaminated with toxic metals and chemicals. That armenian systems aren't functioning correctly Our gut health is so poor which eighty percent of our happy hormones come from our gut and so if our gut is not functioning at its best. You're going to experience depression and anxiety and a chemical imbalance in your brain so just the simple thing giving your body what it needs on a daily basis when it comes to nutrients exercising water. You can heal yourself inside an out and you can make yourself have all of the dopamine serotonin in those happy hormones that you're supposed to have on a daily basis absolutely and i know for me when i eat those processed foods. I you know it's like a switch goes off and i will react horribly to everything. My skin gets worse. I am you know. Everything is a lot worse than i feel like. I just handle stressful situations better. When i'm eating the right foods definitely definitely makes a world of difference. Now i would love to know a little bit about what led to the creation of diesel physique. Okay so back in two thousand seventeen I did these groups And it was called. I trained with daniel and We had a great great group in A large group and we ran those groups for about two years after about two years. I just i really. I was so. I was out in california training professional athletes and the partner that i had at the time did not want to do these groups anymore and there are so many people in these groups that it's amazing. It's a lot of work in me and we can handle it a lot but when she decided not to my business partner decided not to do these groups with me. I kind of went a different route so back. In two thousand nineteen shannon. I moved to the virgin islands August fifth two thousand nineteen and We went down there. And you know we've always done nutrition. We've always no personal trained and that's what we did down. The island is well and you know it came to be used like you know what we can put all of our focus on these groups in larry lob to new xactly what we love to do in help each individual because we have so much time on our hands on the island that we don't go to a nine to five you know so that's what we do. We could up from the crack of dawn. And we're answering questions. We want to get your questions answered as soon as possible. Even if there is two thousand people in the group we want to answer it within that our we wanna get back with you and we wanna help you and again moving down. There really inspired us to focus on this group and put everything that we had into it. And man it's been it's been a blessing just to see the trant just the transformations but just how happy people can be. You know just off of nutrition and workouts and the motivation an uplifting that you get in this group is beyond anything that i could have ever even imagined but the inspiration was we felt like we had gotten lost in a rat race of life. You know you buy a house you get the cars he worked and then we were just like. What's the purpose here you know. We're just working to make money. And instead we sold everything that we minimalist everything we sold. All of our clothes. Shoes are home to the virgin islands in the goal with this group was to focus on doing what we love and it just blew up. I mean we wanted to take the knowledge that we have and share it with the world because we see every day. I hear it every day around me. I need to go on a diet. Let me cut all my carbs. Only you're gonna die. I need to run ten miles a day. All these crazy extremes things that we know people will never be able to stick to and why there's so many fad diets out there. I mean we watch tv every day and we see all these commercials of these pills that make you lose weight or the next weight loss surgery all these things that have really negative effects and don't and they actually cause more damage than good. It's kind of a toxic cycle because the goal for them is to bring you win. Starve you you can't stick to you all the way back. Then you're gonna come back for the next program a few months later that they come out with and say is the best ram out there and so our goal was to to stop that and share the truth and show people that this is false information being out there. You don't to starve two hours of cardio. You don't have to give up your favorite foods. It's all about balance it's about giving your body exactly what it needs and when it becomes something that you can do that's easy it becomes a lifestyle you can stick to it and there's no more of that crazy roller in yoyo. Exactly what we did is we created this group so that you can live a healthy lifestyle. The easiest way possible with no restrictions getting one percent better every single day that's our motto one percent better every single day and you know with that. We don't ask for perfection just progress just progress if you're if you're going after perfection in my opinion you're setting yourself up for failure. Get one percent better. Every single day in that adds up to a ton. Think of that one hundred days if you do want a one percent better everyday in one hundred days less than a half a year. You're going to be exactly where you want to be. I think that's so inspiring and something that so many listeners. Need to hear. Because i think so often when you have a health goal a lot of times. You're looking at that end destination and it's like i don't know how long that's gonna take. That's that's crazy. How am i going to do all of that and fit that into a day but to really be you know taking those steps over time because i always think about this too that you know you didn't have it today and the time is going to pass no matter what so if you are a little bit better. Hey you're a little bit better exactly. I saw something online like years ago and it said you're laughing everybody on the couch. I love that. Because i'm like it doesn't matter how slow you go you're progressing and we put so much pressure on ourselves were all. Most people are all or nothing. They're all in if they mess up. They just quit. And that's what we teach in our challenges that failure is an opportunity to learn reevaluate in grow. It's not quit. it's try again tomorrow. If he fell again the next day. Try again the next day but never it's okay to struggle. It's never ok to quit phil harder. Yeah that you know only lakeville harder harder the next day going into you get better and better every single day again. That's exactly what we teach. I love that. I know so many people who you start a program and if you mess up on day three then you're done with it. Well i guess. I messed up and i'm not gonna absolutely in the monday motto for people wall starting on monday. I talked to him like well. There's seven days in a week. Why can't you start tomorrow. I mean this is a lifestyle. It's okay if you failed on thursday. You can try again on friday. Yeah don't keep pushing it off. Because truly i mean this is your life and you only get one and you wanna live at your absolute best and it's okay to have failures. Those are just great lessons a now. I love that approach. Can you tell me a little bit. Walk me through what those challenges look like and what some of those changes are that you work with clients to me definitely So we provide fine meal plans per week and the purpose in this is that we believe there's not just one way and we wanna make sure that everyone has the best way for themselves that they enjoy everybody's different everyone has different tastes beds and so we offer vegetarian kito flexible balanced and then a strict plan In the street plan is it's pretty strict but with those five plans like shanta saying there's so much variety in those plans that you can choose whatever one you want and again those mules change every single week. You're never going to eat the same thing for the six weeks that we have this town. Yeah and the great thing is with our meal plans as we allow you to mix and match them so if you wanna do vegetarian day and do flexible the next day and do balance the next day you can eat differently every single day. If you'd like to or if you want to save a ton of money and maybe sixty five dollars a week you can do one plan for the whole week so you get the best of both worlds. You didn't have to cook a crazy amount of food. You didn't have to buy a crazy amount of ingredients and that's another thing my plan says i don't want the recipes to have twenty plus ingredients. That's expensive it's overwhelming. I every time. I've seen a program. I feel like st mill plans where each recipe is twenty plus different ingredients. And that's so expensive. It's confusing i. Don't wanna spend much time each week at the grocery store and so our goal was to make this simple. It's black and white. It's written down in front of you. There is absolutely no guests work. You don't have to guests what time you should eat. You don't have to guess how much you should eat. We tell you what seasonings and sauces you can. Have we tell you how much water to drink daily basis. We tell you how to enhance the flavor of your water in a more healthy way to help you get it down and we also teach you do three videos a week on monday wednesdays and fridays and each video All the challenges coming in watch and we're teaching you something about nutrition or training that you can take this knowledge and you can share it with others and you can live this lifestyle and it not just be about keeping you within the challenge but you actually learning and taking this on your own so you can continue it forever. That's and then on top of our milk plans. We have four workout plans per week. And those include at home with no equipment at all you can just have your body or you can do at home with dumbbells resistance fans or you can do gym workouts and we even have a cross fit style training program for those that are definitely a little bit more advanced and like those quicker more intense workouts. That is so cool. I love with the meal plans to that. You know nothing is going to be the same from week to week. So i think yeah once. You're past the plan. You have all of these meal ideas. Because i think so often. Yeah i go to the grocery store. There are so many options. Like what am i gonna make and just having some of those ideas there. Were you know if i'm getting in this kind of this is what my body is going to need. The one of the main things. I love about this Challenge that we have is shanta even mentioned it just a second ago is we actually have a guy who does scheduling for every single person if they need it in the challenge in what i mean by that is we have. Er nurses we have nightshift workers. I mean we have people that worked fourteen hour days and they all come to us. Like i can't eat this. i don't have time. i don't have time. i don't have time. Well we have a guy who's a guru it making schedules and he will write you a schedule until you exactly what times to eat each meal throughout the day. My favorite part of the challenges from the beginning to the end the first week you hear a lot of i can't by week six absolutely love hearing pretty much one hundred percent of people saying wow i can. I can do all of this. I just wasn't aware of how to do it when we don't know how we immediately think we can't but that's where we come in and teach you how and we show you how. We make sure that it's doable. And it's easy and it may not always be easy. I tell people all the time. Choose your hard. It's hard looking in the mirror and not liking what you see. It's hard putting on an outfit and feeling uncomfortable and not wanting to go out. It's hard feeling hate for yourself. It's a terrible thing to carry around. Choose your heart. Go through that little phase of part of a huge adjustment in your life learning these new healthy habits and then it's not hard someday it becomes easier and easier and easier actually fine. Ms the thing about the challenge to valerie. Is you know. We don't just teach how to eat good. We teach mind body and spirit. That is our main thing in. This group is mind body and spirit because you have to be in a certain place mentally before you can get somewhere physically. And i'm a firm believer in that in you have to love yourself and that's what we want. You deserve this and we want to give this to you we want. We want this to be amazing for you every single day for the six weeks. I love that. I think first of all with having the scheduler i mean that takes out so many of these is say no for me. I think my my wellness journey really began. When i was in grad school and working fulltime and eating those dinners either rushing. You know at five o'clock between class work or at ten o'clock when you got home and to have someone to kind of walk through the day with you help you figure that out. I think that that's huge. But you can't be healthy if the physical is great but you have to focus on the mental and spiritual health has definitely inside and out. It's not just the physical. It's mental more than anything and so we definitely preached and we're there for people i mean we. Everyone has daily stress in their life. They have events that come up that they weren't planning and we're there for our challengers not every day. We get messages on a daily even. If it's just to have a talk about how they're feeling we're there for them. We're not like regular coaches even with the over a thousand people in our challenge. You can ask them. We are there. And we've we have a few additional coaches within our challenge to that help us whether it be scheduling helping you show you to lift properly just to motivate you inspire you or just to relate to you. I love that about their group. Because i tell everybody it's bigger than yourself and it's awesome to be a part of something bigger than yourself and we don't have any negativity or any of the craziness you know. Goes on the world within our challenge. This is their safe-space. They can come to ice and this community and be inspired and phil joy and phil hope and on their hard days. Were there for them to let them know. It's okay to fail. it's okay to struggle and we're here for you that's retro. I love that. And i think the accountability piece is so huge with that as well. Because you have people who have either gone through before going through it right alongside you having some of the same struggles. You're having and be able to talk to. I'm sure other community members as well as having coaches that can lead you through it. That has to really help most definitely. It really is an amazing group. It really is in. We're like the family. We are a big. I tell people in the group all time. I'm like we love y'all league your family. We associate ourselves more with this group than we do our family because this is this is we love. This is what we do and you know. We're we're with these challenges in in this community. Twenty four hours a day basically seven days a week. We're answering questions on monday. Through sunday there is not a day that we take off because we want to be there for you every single step of the way until you have the knowledge that we have where you can go on your own to do it. Thank you for that. Because i know that the people going through your program that has to really help and i think makes habits sick for sure. I was just gonna say something that you had touched on his while. You know you mentioned unexpected events. And i think the last year fifteen months have really been just a series of unexpected event. I think that you know for so many of us. This was either a time where you really focused on health or many sitting on the couch. I think a lot of mental health really struggled during this time and to know a little bit of what you would suggest for those kind of struggling to get back on the wagon. Kind of as we're coming out of this in getting back to normal in finding maybe our pants don't fit and you know right. We'll the the simplest way to put it. Is you literally have a nutritionist personal trainer in your back pocket in your in your phone so even if you are at home and you're struggling mentally all it. Takes his one click. And you have the help of an amazing community amazing coaches that are going to help you and motivate you in teach you more discipline and that's more of that's more of it than anything is discipline. It's easier to find motivation. That is disciplined. And when you can find that discipline when we teach you how to find that discipline. You're going to be so much better off out to tell you during kobe. That's actually that was our biggest spike is in our group was during covid because we had at home no equipment workouts. We had you know you know people were ordering instacart in you. Know getting glued delivered to their house. It's simple you can do everything literally from your couch if you want. Do that way them something to look forward to. Yes last such a depressing time for many as i. It may have felt like a little vacation. But being stuck in your home's not getting to see your family and friends and associate with people. This group gave them that social aspect and that inspirational aspect something to look forward to each day. It gave them a schedule each day. Well even if you're at home all day you have these sell things to do throughout your day. So you're not board or lost a it gives you a purpose when he fill purposeless and i think that's why we grew so much during is because people just felt lost and this gave them something to guide them in journey to be on to better themselves during this time. I think it's really a healthy way to cope with the anxiety and the stress of you know such a difficult time where we truly for a long time and and to an extent. Still don't really know what's next. And i think it's a great way to be dealing with the stress compared to other vices. I think that we kinda turn to you now. I love to know to you know for myself. I'm going to be going back to work fulltime in person next week and for many of our listeners as well they're making that transition from working from home and having you know maybe not always having the disciplined. But you can you know. Walk away from your computer and work out or maybe having a little bit more of that time for meal. Prep and things like that. What are some of your suggestions for those who are getting back into the swing of things and even balancing social life in this time because that was something we didn't deal with. That certainly has a role in our health. I think as well definitely. Yeah i feel you on that. Not having to wear masks everywhere. i realized. I have to socialize again. I feel like i'm relearning. How to have a conversation with people and smile. You're smiling a little bit but yeah so going back to work on one thing i tell everybody is failing to prepare is preparing yourself to fill though one of the easiest things about our challenges that we have you. Usually we recommend that you cook your food with a two to three hours span. On one day a week you can cook an entire week's worth of food but it in tupperware and put it in your fridge and what's so also ms. You're done for the week. He's going to work. You grab breakfast. You're lying in your snacks. And you bring them with you in your purse or your bag and you're done all you do is pop into the microwave. It's so easy and it takes those extra out of your day of cooking each day if you can just take three hours on one day to get it all done and that's probably been the most beneficial for those that are super busy is that it's just grabbing go grabbing go and again going back to work as well. It just makes it that much better to have someone who can create schedules for you. Create meal plans. That are black and white literally. Everything is done for you so you don't have to think about it. It's all on the pedia right in front of you even your schedule. And that's what. I love about going back to work is people did before covid. They would take their hour lunch break. Hit know thirty minute. Workout forty five minute workout at the gym. You know on their lunch break if they if they had time and that's one thing that our guy who creates the schedules does is. He can tell you exactly what time to go workout wind to have your post workout. Neil win to have your next meal win. You're going home to have dinner like it. It just. It's so simple. And i wish i i can't. I can't even elaborate enough on it to to to get to the listeners. A how easy. This really is to live this lifestyle. Our twelve i. You know are busy moms and dads who were to college all of the things that this has simplifying their life. Yes because they're not guessing each day what they're going to go eat. They're not going to get in fast food. they feel better inside out. They have more energy. I'm we have a lot of Working people who have all of a sudden started getting up before work something. They thought they would never do. And we're working out because it gives them so much energy for their day that they're like this is so worth and i feel so much better and then we have others who enjoy getting off work and releasing the days tension and stress at the gym or at home with their workouts and my favorite part of it. All is that parents children. They're watching. I tell every parent. Your kid does not do as you say they do as you do. They're watching you and learning so all of our parents. Our children are watching them. Work out their joining their workouts. Their kids are actually eating amazing meals and recipes that we have in their enjoying them and they're wanting to be like their parents and their parents are feeling this amazing sense of pride because they're instilling health in their children. Which is something. I didn't know how to do before. It is the cutest thing ever to see all of the photos and videos posted in our group of the children even on the mats with their mom. You know doing sit ups in their little bitty dumbbells like. It's the cutest thing that i've ever seen in my life but at the same time i'm like good for you know what good for you as a parent. Because you're giving you're you're giving your child a chance. You're giving your child a chance to live a healthy lifestyle from the very beginning and lied. Channa said earlier and this is another saying of mine. It's bigger than fitness. It's going to be bigger than fitness. It is bigger than fitness. We want you to see your grandkids graduate. We know that's that's the longevity that we want in life in health and that's what we want to give you guys. That is incredible and i love the idea of the little kids learning differently. I will never forget you know. My dad is pretty into fitness. And i remember doing you know in the early nineties doing eight minute. Avs and eight minutes. I actually s we still spandex and we still quote them a note. We probably know it by heart at this point but it really raised you know. And i think that's so inspiring to you know to see that that's inspiring the next generation already. Yeah i think that's so incredible. Now so many people will say that there are just not enough hours in the day when it comes to food nutrition exercise all of it and advice. They are anything ninety mistakes you see people making that are small switches that we can all make. Well you know a lot of big gainers. What they'll do is start with the milk plan because they're not sure how they can fit it all in and that's what we preach with one percent better as if you can just do the meal plan that's okay. The meal plan alone is going to increase fat loss. Increase your energy. Just start there start with what you can and as time goes on it's crazy because people seem to be able to pick out those moments in their day that they didn't realize that they weren't utilizing in a positive manner more so maybe scrolling through your phone hours and you don't realize that you do that or your thirty minute break at lunch. They replace sitting and talking with going for a short little walk. They have their meal. We hear that from everyone in the first week is others just not enough time in the day and they're just so amazed when we show them that there is an we showed them in those areas of their life where they can simplify or how to make it easier and i can tell you with our workouts anna cardio included one. Hour of your day is all you need. That's it if that if that and you know you don't have to do it all at once. We have a lot of people who will do some cardio at one part of the day and then they'll do their workout another part of the day so like to possibly thirty minute sessions and they figure it out or if they can't work out you know five days out of the week. They hit two to three times out of the week. And that's totally fine and like we say it's not about perfection. It's just about progress in putting in the effort and trying to show up for yourself every single day and so they don't have enough hours in the day. There's no busy enough schedule to where you can't eat healthy because there's no difference in time when it comes to putting something unhealthy in your mouth or just putting something healthy in your house is very very true. Even if you're eating out there is always a healthy eating option at any restaurant. I can find something healthy. I any fast food as well believe it or not. You have gotten actually. That's another thing that we do. Is you know. We have several challenges. Go out of town go on vacations. Go out to dinner. It's an anniversary dinner. It's a lunch with mom. They message us every single day. Hey i'm going to this mexican restaurant what can get. We're going to tell you exactly what you can get to stay on track. And that is. I think something that we provide a lot of people in groups and in other nutritionist. Don't do because they are so focused on stick to the plan to stick to this. If you don't if you if you veer off the plan it's it's all or nothing you you you've lost. No that's not what we preach here. And that's we wanna teach you how to live the lifestyle even when you're going out to eat to dinner Ruby tuesdays even applebee's like we can tell you exactly what to get japodlay. There's so many options out there and again that's just what we love to teach. You know that healthy lifestyle. You can do this anywhere at any restaurant at home wherever you are in the world literally. That's amazing and i think it's something that a lot of people struggle with. Is you know once you go off the plan in any way and you and you have to get fast food for some reason you know something unexpected happy and up in a restaurant and it's easy to just say well off the plan so i'm just going to get whatever i want or sometimes just truly not knowing sometimes you may think the salad is the healthiest option in. It's actually not exactly well. We actually tell people that all the time they're like. Can i get a caesar salad. And i'm like well. Here's the thing with a caesar salad. Not something you don't know. Is this about eight hundred calories just in the the addressing it which is absolutely insane. And i was guilty of that too because i love caesar salads but we taught how to make actual healthy salads and beneficial nutritional that actually benefits throughout the day and can give you that fuel that you need to get through the day instead of going and getting something in stepping backwards. Basically in your progress of something. That's not healthy. When you think in reality it is absolutely. Because i i don't know about you. I don't want to eat the healthy option. That's not really healthy. If it's not even going do that anyway than lee. I'd rather have a really awesome meal. It's one thing we're told what our challenges is. I'm eating better now than i did before i mean these are like gourmet foods and recipes. We have casseroles tacos burgers soups. We have ice cream. we have cheesecakes. I mean the. The list is endless of the recipes that we provide. Because i'm a foodie i love. I knew from a young age as a kid. That was one of my biggest issues with binge eating disorder. Is i would think oh. I need to start myself. I can't have these things. And then i would go and binge on them. Because i didn't give myself it and i thought i wouldn't gonna get it again the next day so in that's unhealthy toxic cycle. So it's better to have balance within your day and enjoy those foods but a healthier version of them. Even when it comes to like the caesar salad we have healthier versions can still have your awesome caesar salad but there are other brands that are much healthier to get versus the ones that you've been getting and it's just awesome to see people. It's so funny you know if you work in an office you have deliveries it so common to have fun cakes and awesome food delivered. Our challenges love their meal so might sell sit there with their tupperware meal and eat it while everyone else eating the delivered food. Enjoy their meal and when you have like ice cream for snacks and cheesecake for snacks. What are you missing out on. You don't feel deprived in any way so you don't have those crazy cravings. I know before. When i would even say the word diet to myself all of a sudden i wanted a chocolate cake. Exactly you know. I just started craving things. Because i was telling myself i couldn't have them and that's not what we in our challenge. There's absolutely nothing that you cannot have going to tell you how to alternate certain ingredients to make that recipe work and portion sizes to make that work. And i'll tell you you eat a lot of food in our challenge. People amazed a. That's the number one thing we're told us. I never thought. I could eat this much food and lose body fat. It's amazing and our group is about the scale we tell everybody. Forget the scale because as you're building lean muscle mass and you're cutting fat. The scale doesn't know what is what that's not the determining factor of fat loss. It's all about cutting fat and building. Lean muscle mass. We do measurements. We do check ins on fridays. And we go based off your measurements because as you're building. Lean muscle mass. you're the skill may have lent. Upper went down or stayed the same but we see those inches come down. We know for a fact that you lost fat week. And it's amazing and you have to build lean muscle mass get permanent results. If you don't building muscle mass. Your metabolism does not increase so the whole goal for our challenges. We want you to build. Lean muscle mass. Get that tight shape that you wind have permanent. Change versus temporary change in the morley muscle mass. You have the more food you can eat on daily basis because your body naturally burns more body fat drope. That's awesome. Because i think so often we do you think about the sales are success. But i think it's those non scale you know wins that we have and i've never had the scale. Actually tell me how close fat. I can be the same weight at accurate non skill. Victories are number one absolutely though. Unskilled victories are number. One in shannon. I will sit here and tell you. If we would've listened or looked at the scale we would quit a long time ago. Because i'm actually fifteen pounds heavier at ten percent less body fat than i am nine years ago. Yeah it and that's what we tell our challenges to don't focus on the scale. It's something to go by. But we do measurements. Which is that that right. There shows everything. I've had challengers lose six seven pounds but twenty inches won t inches twenty five inches. And i mean that's i mean that's just you know that's just inches. I mean we've had. I mean we've had challenges lose over one hundred pounds in four and a half months in our group starving in non starvation. It's unbelievable to see the transformation pictures of how they're frowns when they first took their pictures and then how freaking happy. They are when they took that four month. That six month picture and it's just it's it's it's overwhelming to see honestly it almost it over it over joy shannon. I just i we literally. I mean like it's this is what we want. We want to change the world one person at a time for the healthier version. You know. that's exactly what we want. In the most joyous part is every day we get to wake up to messages from people telling us that this is the best they've ever felt about themselves or they accomplished something they didn't think they ever could or a. We've had over fifty surprise pregnancies within our challenges the past year. People who with fertility issues. Because like i said nutrition can kill you and that's beautiful and not only that we've had several challengers an what's crazy to even say. This is a a doctor will tell you. It's impossible but we have had challenges. And i want to say at least ten or twelve. That have come off diabetes medicine. I'm talking metformin and insulin. They have come off completely and his. It's changed their life for the better. And it's amazing to see that instead of living in fear with diabetes every single day and watching your blood sugar in doing all these things to try to keep alive basically to have someone come off of those medicines is a huge win. That is huge story was told and then suspended probably about six challenges ago. A woman had not had a period in fifteen years and doctors couldn't actually give her a reason why they just kept prescribing different medications to try and she never she was unfortunately never able to have the children that she wanted to because of that issue. She'd in our first six week challenge. She got her period for the first time. In fifteen years fifteen years the doctors were blown away. they didn't know what to say It was amazing and she's had her period every month since then. Our bodies a certain things are hormones are affected by what we do on a daily basis. And what we need only basis. So we're just every day we get your watching people who are healing themselves. It's it's to see a really truly is that is so inspiring and i was going to ask you about some of those success stories and that's just incredible to see how something as simple as getting a little bit more movement in your day and eating less processed foods. How far that can go toward healing. Your body most definitely most definitely. Now i would love to know Win win is your next challenge and you know. How often do you run these challenges. We run our challenges every six weeks for for the entire year. Basically our challenge in week four right now. We just started week for We have a about a five day grace period in between the challenge where you can sign up and meal. Plans will drop that following friday. July ninth is a friday. I believe that our new plans are going to drop july ninth. The official start date is july twelfth. But like i told you earlier if anybody listening to this podcast wants to come onto our challenge in enjoyed this lifestyle we will let them sign up a few days late can get into this challenge and change their life and the first week of our challenge is a week of learning. It's not so much about perfection that week because you're not gonna have it all together. The first week is going grocery shopping. Finding you know all the things that you need. It's getting your tupperware together. It's learning how to prep your meals than it's learning your schedule and then we to rolls around and you've really kinda got it figured out and it's a lot easier and that's week twos earlier week where you really get started because it's so overwhelming you know we tell everyone not gonna be one hundred percent on your first day of a new job or your first day at school and that's how our challenges are first week is teaching you showing you how it's gonna go and how it's gonna work. You know being very patient and helping you with all of your questions. We want there to be no guesswork whatsoever. We are there to teach you and explain until you why so that you can learn and then secondly girls around and you know you figured out your schedule. You've got everything prepped. And ready and you are ready to roll that's awesome. I think having that extra time for prep is so important. And i think that's just going to solidify those habits as you get into it because again it can be so hard to get overwhelmed at the beginning of anything new. Ask and that's what we tell people. All the time is when they first get into the challenge. I'm like it's like going to class like just got your class schedule. Your freaking out. Because you don't know where to go eight. Am don't know where to go for block to same with the job. Just like shannon said you know. It's like a new job. After that first week we get roland so simple. That first week is kind of. I don't want to say hectic. But you're kind of like fat. O'brien gotta rainy like okay. I got to gather all this information. And you do you really do. And you get it in about three or four days and after that you're good to go and you start living this lifestyle and it's amaz- it's literally as simple as checking your new meal plans on friday figuring out which one you wanna do going grocery shopping. Prep your near meals and following your workout plan. It is that black and white. it's that simple. That is awesome and one question. I do have is someone who has a lot of food sensitivities. Do you have substitution for say someone. Maybe you're not vegan but unfortunately you don't tolerate eggs or a few need to avoid gluten. So i will never allow anyone to eat something that they do. Not like or that. They have an intolerance or an allergy. So we have alternative slips and if your item is not on the list you just ask us and we'll give you two three options if you don't like those options we'll give you other ones. We will never ever ever have eating anything that you dislike or anything that you have in any sort of intolerance to and that's the best part of our is. The flexibility is endless. That is awesome. I think so. Many listeners who have autoimmune disease and just different sensitivities where it can be very tough to get. You know meal plan sometimes. We're there's no wiggle room and you have to stick to it and kind of figuring out on your own could be very stressful and not always the best option based on what your activity level is yes in one of the number one things about food sensitivities which is so common these days. They're actually caused from a lack of good gut. Bacteria hell so when we heal your gut. Your actually. I'm amazed to see over the course of six months to a year. Lot of your intolerances go away now. Food allergies are a different story. And i'm someone who's allergic to a lot of things and i grew up with autoimmune diseases as well so i completely understand that and the struggle with it especially when it's a thyroid issue and which can affect weight loss and we're here for you and that aspect too because we have a lot of knowledge about hormones auto immune in how nutrition can help heal that and get your body running at its absolute best. That's fantastic. I know for me personally. Certainly nutrition has played a huge role in just functioning on a day to day basis. With having some of these issues. I would be in a lot of pain and a lot of the time from when i was eating very very very processed foods especially gluten. I would find even my back with her just walking so i think that that's so helpful especially for people wanting to increase their activity level to be able to feel their bashing. Well that's wonderful now. I would love to switch gears to ask you both a few of our rapid fire questions so listeners can get to know you a little better as well. I'm definitely now. This might be a hard one. What is your top wellness tip. Top wellness tip focus on getting one percent better every day versus perfection. Love that i would say that. My top wellness peak would be she kind of took. My answer to another one is just start. Everyone has a day one. Yes just start start where you are start with your failures start with your unknowns just stars. That's great where's your favorite travel destinations. I love relive. We live in the virgin islands back. We live on saint thomas island and it had an honor but we simple we plan to travel the world and we've already traveled a lot. We're actually planning on one month trip of just going down either. The west coast or east coast in a motor on Rv just experiencing in everything. I wanna see the world. The world is so big and growing up in small towns. You don't realize how much beauty there is out there. And we love experiencing other cultures and other people's perspectives on lives and getting on life and just getting to see all these different communities and ways of living life and perspectives. And that's my favorite part of travel. But if i had to pick one place in the world it would definitely be where we are very chose to settle down. We absolutely love saint. Thomas and i would recommend that place to anybody to to visit this word before they die for sure. That's amazing and what was the transition like moving over there for me. It was tough in. Here's why i am such a busy body. I i was used to working five. Am to ten pm every single night. Coming home getting on the laptop doing diets so i was go. Go go all the time. So when we went down to saint thomas. we weren't go go go. Actually we didn't do anything for about the first month we were there. I had a couple of clients that are trained. But i didn't a set schedule. So i kind of freaked out a little bit. Maybe a little panic attack. Just because i wasn't used to be in so i felt like i was being complacent that was number one thing and it took me about a month and a half to get adjusted but once we got adjusted got scheduled down. We were good to go. i am. we're opposite so it was a super easy. Move for me. Because i am an extremely simple person i could live in a tent. Just fine And we live in dallas. Life was just so busy in crazy in one thing when piece of advice. I'd give to anybody as just slow down. Minimize your life things. Don't bring you joy meant to and we actually don't do gifts anymore. We had a pact memories over things. Yeah that's incredible. I think that you know those experiences or what you're going to take with you and a lot of times as material things they don't mean a whole lot it's more the story behind them most. Definitely yeah well you know we. We were people to like. We had our our dream home goal. We it's funny because you know it doesn't matter anymore reach those goals and they're really cool at first for a month and then you continue to work to pay for them for the next five years if it's hall and you come to realize that you become a prisoner of your your objects and when we simplified our lives and we got rid of all these things we had this amazing thing called freedom and peace and a choice of what we wanted to do and we got to live more in the moment and i would recommend that to anybody. Simplify your life you know. Don't be a prisoner to things or in that competition rat race of who has the most who's the most successful because money is nothing. You have only so much time on this earth and so important to enjoy imprison every moment and that is priceless harness. Everything one hundred percent. And i cannot tell you the feeling i get when i walk into. Unfortunately it's my guest room that is just stuff and it's all hand out and you know just seeing that you've definitely inspired me to downsize a little bit Yes facebook marketplace can take care of. Yeah it has such a psychological effect on us more than we especially 'cause you know none of it is anything that's actually important to me and certainly we find that your stuff can get a hold of you more than more than we would like so we everything we own can fit into two checked bags. Wow that's amazing. it's really awesome. Those awesome now switching gears. If you're an animal what animal would you be in. I would be a dog. The endless happiness no matter what the endless joy loyalty in a dog and we we have a dog diesel who is our absolute pride enjoy and we love him so much and endless love and happiness and joy is something to definitely learn from the same thing definitely dog spelled backwards as god. You know that's That's it speaks volume. It really does. And i say this with joking matter too if you don't like dogs i don't like you think that but i'm totally joking but yet shannon definitely hit that one on the head for sure i honestly we're animal lovers so on our island there's like thousands of wildcats and we kinda just love all of them and the the whole island is the same and we i mean. I'm a huge. My dad's a horse trainer. I love horses. I love the piece of riding horses. They're amazing beautiful magical creatures but favorite of all fascinating it his. Yeah i got so spoiled. My i don't have a dog yet. But my parents have a few. And i worked from their house for a couple of weeks on and off throughout the pandemic and just having a little blind deaf cavalier king charles all his little snores and there's just so much love that they have in any time. Our dogs didn't like someone that person as bad news. They know absolutely absolutely can read the energy. It's amazing to me. Yeah i wish. I could bring my dog for for business things to they could probably absolutely i love you know. Having our businesses are can he can be with us. We spend time together. We don't have to be a part for the day. And i love that. That's amazing now. If you could master completely new skill what would that be. I would love to be able to dance like the amazing choreographed dancing. I actually watch it all day on my phone when i'm in the gym and then when i get home and i'll pretend when i'm doing my cardio that it's me doing the dances. Maybe someday i'll try it out. But if i can ever master a skill definitely would i watch a lot of cooking shows and i wanna be a chef like i to the other day i was like i want to quit everything i do and i want to be a cook like i. I love food and like just. I mean we watch. We watch the food network all the time. If that could get a skill that would be like. And i'm talking not just a normal cook like i'm talking top of the line like hey you need to call me out. Fly to new york. And i'll cook a steak like that.

Thank you so so much to her for coming on the podcast in here's the interview hope you guys enjoy thank you judge shanta owens for being on the capela hunters podcast. Thank you so much for your time. I know that you're busy. I registered through your bio another extremely busy lady now you and i first met through the leap program law enforcement action partnership ship so yeah i remember that as well as is just tell us a little bit about yourself and how you gonna without. I am residing birmingham alabama so i am i'm from the south and i attended elevator state university for undergrad and then i went on to louisiana state university for law school i i completed my law degree and a bachelor of civil because i also studied at the university of x. Stay in provence sprint where i enrolled in a dual degree program a._m. And after i completed law school and moved back home to birmingham alabama and began working as a prosecutor with the jefferson county district tourneys office in jefferson county the largest county in the state of alabama and so i worked there for about five and a half years and <hes> started up as a baby prosecutor and when i left five and a half years later i was the senior trial prosecutor in my signed courtroom. Let's hear and and i ran for the seat for no for a district judgeship. At that time i was a district judge for ten years and in january. I have two thousand nineteen. I was appointed by the governor to fill a circuit judgeship and that's what i'm currently doing currently preside over a felony any level trials and the circuit court in the criminal division of jefferson county and i just recently became involved with law enforcement action partnership ship. I think i was invited panels to picking a panel here in birmingham concerning <hes> the organization and just kind of fell in love with the work and just all of the just the policies that are instituted through the organization and so and that's how became involved so i haven't been involved with leaps very long about been involved for a little out now okay good now. Do you actually went to france for your degree. Is that right. I sir i study this semester and france was there for about three to four months <hes> because part of my law school i attended lock. The the anna and louisiana is civil law jurisdiction. It is a little different from the other <hes> forty nine states when it comes to the court of law so bill went for a semester full semester there and you because i enrolled in a dual degree programs for our received a juris doctor her when i graduated and also a bachelor of civil law because i did a lot <hes> actually studied a lot of civil law now that didn't help me much because i move back home to birmingham alabama which is not a civil law jurisdiction and so i ended up taking the alabama bar up in here practicing since that time but it was wonderful experience can imagine it was now. I'm not familiar with the civil. Would you mean about civil. Law state was at me. Most most states follow the common law but l. but louisiana is a civil law jurisdiction and it really is just really more interest seizure in how they <hes> in how things things are done in the courtroom. There is not much different except prestige relief. Things are done a little different in civil law versus common law but european countries are civil law jurisdictions and so that's why i studied in france because france is civil. Law jurisdiction follows a civil law code okay. I should have went to law school. Maybe i'll be able to father so as i was a review at your background background to the website judge owens dot com and i read through a lot of that and there's a lot to read. You have done a lot. I don't even know how you found time to sleep in. Have a couple of kids so good for you so you are very heavily involved in the drug courts and drug rehabilitation you believe in programs. Can you talk a little bit about that. I sure tan <hes> four when i initially took the bench in two thousand nine and two two thousand nine <hes> i was the presiding judge of the jefferson county drug for a program here in birmingham and jefferson county drug court is the largest drug court program in the state of alabama quite naturally because jefferson county is the largest county and so during that time my docket rocket consisted mainly of drug cases namely now heading regular just a regular docket but i would say about ninety percent of my docket consisted consisted of drug cases and a great deal of that <hes> consisted of presiding over the drug court program and our drought the program here in jefferson county and of course i. I must admit i am bias but i believe it's one of the best throat for programs just in the nation and i i've had the opportunity to travel to several different jurisdictions and take a look at their drug court programs but what we do in birmingham is if you're we're charged but they drug offense you would you will appear for an assuming your case is eligible. Most trust his are eligible unless it is trafficking charge on belings. There's evidence to fill that is not eligible construct for truly three habilitated a drug addicted offender and the amazing thing that i love that our programs at once you for programs here in jefferson county then you're felony conviction is dismissed did did it set aside. It is dismissed with prejudice and you can thereby get punched in your record <hes> at a later time but even a thought from ah program is a real rehabilitation around it is one by k senators we actually we have that maybe about seven or eight case taste manager so he will have a case managers that report to we have a prisoner coordinator on seth have a medical team who's appear to assist with medical medically assisted treatment after those offenders who may have a hard time how many off of drugs especially especially opiates cold turkey. We're able to assist in that. I mean it is a real aerobics program. We help with housing we help with transportation we with treatment need that is full service program that seeks to change the offender's live the not not just get a quick result. You know i tell i used to he told the descendant of the drug court that this is not a diet. This is not a quick a quick diet this lifestyle change what i'm not here to try to help help. You lose five pounds in a day. I'm here to truly change the way you look at your life decisions that you're gonna make everything we do in the program is designed to do that and let me say this is another thing that we do out program that a lot of programs don't do we have an assessment of each offender who comes into the program. When the assistant takes a little bit of time it took about ninety minutes but based upon that assessment we know where to place a descendant <hes> we have four track trek one through four traffic one thing the shortest track track four hours typically our high need offender story typically i._v. Not heroin drug users who have attempted treatments before and they and they're just having a hard time because we try to keep different levels of people separated from each other other and try to treat high risk high need offenders together by not mixing them with our low risk offenders. Gotcha wow do you does that particular program keep statistical data. Do you know how successful the program is. I have not been a the drug court. Judge chang berry when i got a point it so i don't know what the data is but we most definitely statistical the data and our numbers last numbers. I checked before i left we were we had an eighty eight percent success rate when i left. I don't know what those numbers are and i would sown. Those numbers are still just as good if not better because the judge who appointed to replace me feel has a heart and a passion for thing people succeed not in the drug court program but <hes> i was very proud of our eighty percent success rate with that large part to to understanding addiction. <hes> you know i'm a former prosecutor and i can tell you i did not go to law school because social worker drug were a bunch of social work on understanding addiction so i had to do a lot of outside work to understand that addiction is not an exact science and you can't put a number on how the person tests positive for how many times they relapse or they go back to a behavior as long as they continue to work the program program then you have to have the resources available to help them and that's what i was committed to <hes> the ten years that i ran the program so judges are picked. Ah for this particular assignment because of passionate you had or is that how it's done no no the way our adjust tips work here is that you run for the seat and i'll tell you this is how i ended up running for that seat. I've never been into politics back and say and i was fairly young when i when i left rested e._s. office to run for the but i ran for the seat because that's kind of the judge which started the drug program he retired he retired from the bench after so the governor at that time appointed someone to the seat and i was really really really concerned i was you know i've been the d._a. Dasa's asset tom for about five years of five and a half years and i was concerned about the person who was appointed because i said these are people's lives. I've never ever seen this person in the courthouse. How can you preside over a program that directly affect people bligh's in every courtroom in the criminal justice system affect people's lives you know we're talking about life and liberty and i was so upset by that that i've literally just talked to my husband about it and said hey i think i can do this i have i don't have any political capital. Don't have any political experience. I'm not connected to anyone but i believe i believe that i can do this because i do not like people sitting on the bench making decisions about people's life liberty and they haven't been in the courthouse before so in iran for the out of passion for for the criminal justice but not necessarily out of a passion for drought belt but that passion rooms wants voice. I put that seed and i put myself in addition to learn as much as i could about drug footsteps throughout the nation and i built our program and i had a i had had a good program to start with because i didn't have to start it from the ground up. The previous judge started the program but i was able to really enchants our program ram different things for after year drafted years that i was there. Oh that's nice. That's good. That's good. That's really interesting. I did not know that that's the process process. Do you know if that's the process is at the process that other states in the union take as far as their drug courts as far as people running for seats and ah good. I was gonna say alabama lease typically. We choose a so you know what you're getting into. When you run four-seat four-seat you know what docket that he will handle now. The presiding judge of the circuit can always transfer us to different divisions <hes> he or she has the power transfer within the surfeit two different divisions so you always you can always move but now most other states. Don't do it like that. Most other states they have with they call rotation like you may be in civil court handling civil cases for a while then you may be moved to the criminal dockets hits but most states do not have where you run for the drope feet and you will be a net until your retirement <hes> unless you're moved because in in all honesty you should probably only preside over a pretrial diversion program for about five years at a time there should always be fresh eyes on the into carajas barring death also yes. I'm pretty sure that's the way connecticut. That's where i'm at is in connecticut and i'm sure there's a rotational type of tenure ear or whatever so with that is so i also see that you're heavily involved in the community what i was most impressed with according to this website jones jones dot com is that <hes> you had <hes> middle high school classes high school classes. Come to your courtroom and watch the corporate seatings and can you talk a little bit about that. I quite often will host middle schoolers and high schoolers in the courtroom and i will have them to come in. I will try to always tell them on a day that will have something in for it because i know they like to see what's going on in court so i will always gisele them when i'm having four or when i'm in <hes> in the process of the trial i let them <hes> about. Maybe an hour of what we do in a row or an hour what we do in court and then i step off awesome bench and i talked to them and allow them to ask me questions and they will typically ask some questions. About how long did it take you to go to school. <hes> you know what major interested in it. How much do judge it's made. What do i need to do. If i'm interested in lost the conversations are always just wonderful for me. In which is why always do it because i enjoy that but i do that <hes> probably three to four times a year in my courtroom and then we <hes> we will always have a conversation for station about they interaction with the police <hes> responsible use of social media and then i will always end with talking about the the consequences of their actions like when they're wrong of the talking about how their criminal history with them their entire lives and good decision vision making and the consequences of actions even when you're young and you aren't really thinking about it so typically is when i do it i i typically we spend about <hes> maybe twenty two and a half to three hours just to students. Wow that's a that's a considerable amount of time. Yeah i really enjoy elliot because he joins talking to the younger younger kids <unk> at because sometimes i'm not so sure people really understand that their criminal history will follow them their entire lives and told them alabama we just got a provision for a few years ago but up up until then even if the case was dismissed against you we we did not have any provision for your record expunged even on a dismissal until a few two years ago <hes> the legislature passed laws whereby under certain circumstances the circumstances are still very narrow so i try to get them to understand about friendship and if you and your friends are riding in the car and if they're four people in the car and there's marijuana found you know in the center console who gets charged ours and that starts a really good conversation typically with young young people when i tell them everyone get charged in the car the police there. They don't have to figure how you know who actually boston marijuana who placed it there. Everyone is imposition of it so we typically have a long talk about destructive possession versus it <hes> so that they will understand that you can be constructive possession. If nothing just five gene in the area or heading it you know just in your presence aw i can remember having a conversation like that with my son and them not understanding standing there and he was like what what so yeah consistory like a main every time i have the conversation. The kids are always like what you mean to tell me. I can get charged and i'm and i always tell them. This is important. According to choose the company you keep very widely and then i always tell them that i've never had anybody come into my courtroom and say hey judge. Let him go. Oh it. Those were my drugs. I want everybody gets charged. Your left to fight alone for yourself on your criminal history. That's it it is odd for ever. Are your criminal history follows you forever. That is something that's definitely needed night and i'd like to do more of speaking to young kids myself. Stop to help them to understand these particular sentiments and tactics that the police used different laws and things like that so. I think it's really important. I think that's good that you do that. I can remember number being a young kid and gone to court. We didn't ask those type of questions but <hes> but <hes> but i certainly think it's it's really really important you and i both relatively we knew to leap organization in leap is is geared towards getting the public in the police to see eye to eye to work together a criminal justice reform and things like that. Tell me what you what your thoughts are about criminal justice reform across the board police interactions. I'm researching another topic right now about asset forfeiture. Tell me what your thoughts sir about all this kind of stuff. Oh wow okay let me start living story here. <hes> bail you know. Let me tell you my thought unveiled because this has been a huge ordeal in alabama <hes> within the past few years try to get the public and judges to understand that bell is to secure present in court and it's not to punish an offender for the crime charge however <hes> judges must be very careful <hes> we must with bell we must seek secured the descendants presence in court must seek to protect the community from violent offenders but more often than not fail issues punishment for the crime charged and and i have a problem with that that you know of personally for me i have a huge problem with that and an impending problem with that i am not a judge will around and get a signature bond to shwe capital murder defendant or to a defendant who charged with curric- rate. I debris case but i will say this. I lean toward independent being on bond until they are convicted. Now there are way too many descendants across this country who are are incarcerated on nonviolent offense and they cannot make bond. I have a problem with that. I have a problem with incarceration of people on nonviolent offenses often. They're unable to make bond <hes> and sometimes the judge will reduce the bond mountains they will have reduced it but if the defendant still cannot next bond that is tantamount to nobody and even in some of our seemingly violent tasted the state of alabama <hes> well i was at the state eight of alabama but the state the commonwealth or whatever jurisdiction whatever prosecuting authority you live in if they're acting that a dependency held on a no bond or if you're asking that a defendant beheld on a very significant bond then they should be able to demonstrate to the judge that the defendant has a a prior criminal history in violence to the community that that descendant has previously fell to appear in court before and therefore should be held on a higher. You're fine or that. The prime is particularly heinous in comparison to other crimes and so therefore the community needs to be protected and and more often than than not that it's not that's not the case <hes> and let me give you an example just recently a young man a here in in jefferson jefferson county but it did not happen happen in the birmingham division it happened in the best merger division of our county are county school differences two divisions but a young man tate in jail. I believe for two and a half years at least two but i believe it was two and a half years. He was charged with. I believe like a burglary charge or rate charge d._n._a. Evidence show last week just last week after he sent two and a half years in the county jail d._n._a. Evidence show that it could it. There was no way it could have been him. He maintained his innocence. All along kit. Mom could not afford to bail him out of jail and so he stayed in jail two years. Those situations happen way too often ways you often this. Young man in two years could've could've been in school. He could have been in college. He could have been manager at a job that now he lost two years of his life for crime that he did it. Not commit and i'm not saying and i don't even know who the judge was. I'm not saying that that judge should have released him on a signature by but i am saying that the judge should have require the state the prosecuting authority to give him some reason as to why the defendant could not have remained on bond pinging the investigation trial of this matter and you know and that's running sample but these examples happen faith examples are they have been across this nation every day and that is an example of violence aged but there are many more examples where defendant discharge with nonviolent offenses. They are being held in jail another thing to stop the end. No no no no i was i was going to was going to <hes> there was a case in new new york city and i was just looking that up a new york city where a kid was held almost the same amount of time two years or so for for stealing a purse or something like that and then he couldn't make bond and he came home and committed suicide. I don't know if you heard about yeah yeah zone type of things they've got to stop happening but it also means that our judges have to be you know socially conscious about about other people in their positions and so for diversity on the bench is is a really good thing it is an important thing and it is a good thing and i'm i'm talking about diversity versity across all ethnic groups across gender because as a woman i bring to the bench something that my male colleagues you know they don't bring and of course they bring thing that i that. I can't bring as a woman but i am a mother. A wife and i'm a former prosecutor so bring all of those life experience to the bench <hes> and that's important like moss perspective is important and it needs to be valued and so therefore we have to make sure that the infamy because among the bench. I'm passionate about this up to make sure that we have black judges twice judges latino latino judges asian judge. We must have women men. We've got to have people who are homosexual heterosexual. We've got to be able to have people on the bench who do not look like us. Who do not have the same life experiences as a new run a where we have to run on a party line in alabama are judgeships. Are you have to run into the democrat or republican or whatever party you want to democrats and republicans are the party here what we democrats and republicans on the bench and we need them on the bench in every facet of the court system and that doesn't always happen but because when we have a diversified dench that will see true criminal justice reform but as long as everybody is preaching the same message and the you know. They're the query thing in the same songs. We're not gonna get anywhere so it's very important that we that we constantly constantly that we are constantly seeking to understand people outside of arab position and and people who are less fortunate than us typically has there date in the criminal justice system and we've got to be able to understand their circumstances. We've got to be able to understand the indigent population. We've got to be able to uh understand people that grow up without a mother and father in the home and if they had a mother and a father that they come from less <hes> less less situations than what we come from but we got able to punish people appropriately understand how to use the power that that we have within a while. We're on the bench and so you know this is a conversation i could go on for days about things about those are just two of the things that i'm passionate talking about. How receptive are the people that you work with. I'm talking about prosecutors and judges to your that frame of mind to have that we need more dirt diversification. I will say luckily here in jefferson county. I had the opportunity to work with colleagues. Were extremely receptive. Cadet extremely <hes> the process of prosecutor's office is out public defenders offices. I get an opportunity to work in. What i i believe the progressive jurisdiction like we're really interested in criminal justice reform here and it's and it's from our judges to our prosecutors to art to arizona's now with that being fit we are only one of taking steps counties in alabama and i'm not saying that other sticky fix aren't progressive <hes> and and there are few work entirely are progressive but the great number of counties in alabama are not. They're not as progressive rested minded as we are here in jefferson county when it comes to trying to trying to really do things criminal justice reform here and and so it makes the little part for the entire state but jefferson county where our we have a diversified bench here that i'm proud to say now. That is the jefferson county. I would assume it's very sounds more liberal and more diversified in and of itself. Is that a reason why you're absolutely right about that yet so i ah i assume not listen. I'm from connecticut and all i hear is about the good old boys good boys in the south so i don't wanna i had actually sleeve plan to move to the south but that is a concern of mine as to what part i moved to because that is a great concern because because i'm not i'm not going to tell you that the good old boys aren't here but i am here to say that you know jefferson county and some of our other surrounding townies and and other places in jefferson county i mean not in jefferson county but in alabama a wonderful places to live alabama they beautiful place but i wouldn't lie until you that we don't have a ways to go you know when it comes to force thinking and you know trying to think about encompassing think of a world that encompasses people that don't look and think like we do have a ways to go in that at the state as a whole but they're a wonderful places here in jefferson. Everson county tends to be a gym here like it it it is. It's the gym in the state of alabama. I'm partial to it but you know i but i'm here i work with it and i know the a great group of people that i work with here and you were born and raised there in alabama right i was i i'm actually originally from selma alabama. I was actually my mom unidad or both from my father's deceased but my mom is still living and we moved to birmingham. When i was in second grade. I lived in montgomery alabama. <hes> which is the capital of alabama i lived in montgomery and four year when i was in first grade and then a second rate we've moved to birmingham and outside college and law school. I've been in birmingham tab and your work with police officers. How was that. I saw that you work with their police cat birmingham police academy at one time. How do you <music> how's that experience been okay what i would do during that time and i would teach new recruits about the alabama criminal code and about testifying a just felt courtroom demeanor and i did a lot more of that when i was the prosecutor and the d._a.'s office but i have a great relationship with law enforcement <hes> here we have and several birmingham police department being our largest <hes> police department here but <hes> i have a great relationship with even the smaller municipalities ladies and i am proud to say that for the most part of course you know you always have a few bad apples but for the most part i'm really proud proud of our municipality here and especially birmingham police department really proud of the communities that they have that here and how they're truly trying to be community. Officers like i'm proud of that and most people wouldn't think that because they hear alabama and they think police they just think really bad relations a relationship but that's not. I don't find it to be the case here. I don't find that to be the case well. That's great to hear. I i mean this podcast is dedicated towards building the relationship between the community and the police and i'm glad to hear that that certain things that we've heard here the northwest i've heard are not necessarily the truth. That's that's good to hear. <hes> and i wouldn't think to overstate it and say that there aren't some bad experiences but overwhelmingly more often than not avenue the relationship here with the police and the community <hes> is one one of collateral types of relationship across the nation. It's that's <hes>. I'm very glad to hear that very glad california recently passed a law a._b. Three nine two so you familiar with this they pass a law changing their standards force particularly use deadly force from reasonable to now. It is what's is necessary. I have you followed that case at all yeah adam elliot that okay so basically what they've done is they've adopted the they've gone away from the use of reasonableness right what a reasonable officer believes that certain time whatever he's dealing with two now the standard is that the officer has to be fairly certain and necessary whatever it's whatever use of force and hasn't been necessary now it has not been defined by the legislature is what necessary is so what's going to happen. Unfortunately is that someone's going to be killed killed by the police and then they're going to apply this law and see if a the judges or wherever believes that whatever actions he took actually necessary so it's gonna be something that's going to come out so wow okay i didn't you know that's always you know a pretty hot topic jake and i. I have lots of thoughts about that. I have lot thoughts about that. One one of my thought is i went an an officer leaves home and this is how always explain it to people when an officer lake home <hes> he hopes to return home to his family every day and we're asking asking officers and first responders out here. We're asking them to put a lot on the line. Protect us when each of us we're endanger you know we pick up the phone and we call the police because we're expecting help in that same vein we that that the people that they encounter that they will not need those people with career a gun and a badge. You know those are never builder. Not that's not a good nick whenever you have couple with a gun and a badge but we also in this is what i tell young people but the police should also be able to encounter you with respect. That's going to be very interesting for me because instead ed every time i hear about someone dying. I'm setting every time i hear it in circumstances and situations are different and i think you have to take it on a case by case basis vases but i think we should be able to kill our police officers that we will respect you and we will abide by command but we should also be able to tell our sons sons and daughters and family members that if they need the police that they will not be met with here particularly because of the color of their skin and that they can make it home yes i i totally agree with that. I think that it's a two way street cooperation as the two way street. Police need to cooperate with us in. We need to cooperate with them. You know there shouldn't be <music> not to show our hands or to run away and things like that for that's my advice first of all to make sure that you're living life but you don't have to run away from the police first and second of all we need to be able to do escalate a situation. I mean things going awry unless we. I don't think it's too much to ask for would that our officers are sure about what they're doing. <hes> shooting i and saying <hes> he might have had a cell phone. I might have been a wallet is completely unacceptable acceptable gavel unacceptable every day of the league right listen. This was a great great interview. I certainly thank you for speaking with me. Is there anything that you'd like to say as far as wrapping wrapping up. How can the community the police work together as far in euros judgeship. How can we all work together to form a more perfect union if you will. I <hes> you know i always say that ordered for us to to come together in order for us to have a great relationship community and law enforcement have to to spend more time together. It's like any relationship any friendship any marriage. Gotta spend time together and you have to spend time together when you're not <unk> arguing that you know you gotta spend that time together so neighborhoods as we're at the officers who patrols the beach they they need to be there and in the public the community. They need to welcome those officers. They're like you know. This sounds a little bit of alabama ish but i not get that but what about heaven likes all over the auto control your beat you know to the table for dinner. You know you once. It's a month or something just kinda help. Stop end you know those types of things to build a mobile relationships and the community and especially for people of color we we have we always we have always been taught to have a distrust of the police. We gotta start changing the conversation. You know l. and we we have to start telling our children like when my children were young dog. I always told them the police. Alter your community helpers. That's what they are. The when you see the police earth community we've got to start changing the narrative of what we teach our children. We've got to start spending time together and building a coalition lucien soda when the police team <hes> even a crime being committed something wrong so that they can say hey take kamir stone so come here. You you know this wrong around. Come up. Let i gotta shake down become. Let's do this without anything bad happening on our part. I think to do that in my courtroom. I send people to prison isn't every week appear <hes> because i am a felony court judge so people go to prison but i'd do it with respect. I do it with kindness. Elect them mm-hmm their family members before i take them into custody and i let them know that their voice will be heard but it also do my job and if you gotta go to prison you gotta go to prison and so we gotta start spending time together quality time together i believe once we spend quality time together and we start telling young people a restart reshaping their do law enforcement we we can change we can definitely change the relationship between the community and and law enforcement. I don't think that is that is very alabama should all i think that that's very i think that's actually very wise. When i was on vacation. One time i ran into a preacher sure <hes> reverend in he was from philadelphia. I start you know we have a conversation. I tell him what i do. Tells me he's a preacher and he said he misses the time. He's african american as well. He misses the time when the police officer was a was a cop on the beat where they were in their vehicles and they were actually walking around and getting to know the public and i think that that is and so my chief well. He's a chief in another place. Now the former chief of the waterberg police department he actually mandated that our officers use our downtime to walk through parks and just go see about how the people are doing. Doing you know walk to walk down the street yet so that was it's not it. That community oriented oriented policing very important <hes>. It's certainly not something that's that <hes> that is isolated in alabama like i said the guy from philadelphia wanted are police chief want to do it and i think that many people are really understanding that community oriented policing means getting auto cars and doing what you had to do in meeting with people that the things department which i just left they have actually instituted these community type days they shutdown whole street and have like a kind of city kind of block party <hes> they just had it <hes> last month in july so where people they gave up hotdogs and people could come and look at our command vehicles since the police cars and all that kind of stuff. They can see exactly what we're doing in. They had a bad they had a bouncy house and all that kind of stuff so it's extremely important extremely important awesome important and we do more of that than things will change. Definitely the relationship will change absolutely absolutely. I want to ask you one last question. You talked about bringing prisoners. <hes> you have to send prisoners to jail every week. Does that take or tenant to prison. Everybody does that take an emotional oceana toll on you to do that. Wow it's amazing you add that. I'm ashley before this call. I was actually <hes> in a murder trial at been trying a murder murder case this week of a young man who had never been in trouble before came from a good family never been in trouble before the jury returned the verdict at ten a._m. This morning and they returned a verdict that they didn't find him guilty of murder but they found him guilty of manslaughter which is included offense of murder her and looking at him hugging his family because i took him into custody. He was out on bond upending the trial. I sent them into custody. He hugged this family. The two families the defendant family and the victim's family they were crying and hugging each other <hes> in telling them that you know they were going to pray for him. Although he got convicted they they were all. I got emotional and our pretty cookie but i got emotional and i got emotional national because i felt now my job is going to begin because i'm gonna have to senate an october and october. I have to send it to him and i said wow nails nails. The pressure is on me. About what do i do with this. Young man a lot you too has taken another life and their families here who were civil to each other like they have lost a child and once out one family lost a child through through debt and another family. They blocked their star today beginning to serve some time in prison and that took a toll on me because i'm a mother in for a moment i became emotional. I don't wanna say that. The job job takes an emotional toll on me but i will say this. I think i am appropriately emotional because i never want. I don't wanna lose my pet of having any emotion about this because if i do then that means that i will easily send someone to prison without thinking about the loss of their liberty and i don't wanna do that. I i want every time. I finished the man or woman to prison i want. I want to feel some kind of way about it because i never want it. Do i never want it to be worth me taking someone's liberty away from them. It's just <hes> they'll be okay. They can go to prison. No i wanted to always be thoughtful. Income liberate thing that i do and i send it to young men on monday another murder case. I tried a month ago. His sentencing was monday and i sent it attempt to life without parole without the possibility of parole wasn't easy. It wasn't easy for me to do that. I did it because the facts of avec case and the law dictated that that's what he needed with life without parole but it wasn't easy for me to do so yes it does take an emotional toll on me. Nick welcome there and i don't ever want that to leave because as long as i'm handing out and it says <hes> imprison. I'd need to be emotional about it so i will hallway understand that i'm taking away. Somebody freedom that is that is awesome. That's good to hear that there are judges out there who have some type of sympathy and empathy eighty four there <hes> defendants wow judge owens.

Hey, guys. Welcome to coffee was Shanta Chris Naga with me, and we were already discussing the education around money I'm excited to dive in to your story Chris I'm excited to dive into preparing people for what's Common Market some of the best. Coming up for people to be to create insane amounts of well, no matter where you're starting from, it really is a great. It's like this quantum leap is war time machine that's going to be in front of US people know how to use it. So until about Iraq story, then we'll jump into this sure ain't grow up with money or in a family with money but I grew up dreaming big I. I became a pro snowboarder at a young age self employed by sixteen years old with escape or work clothing line and I did that for many many years all the way up through early two thousands I was. Running my skateboard shops. Traveling the world being a professional snowboarder and then all the sudden when the first recession hit, I ended up having to get a job and landed financial world in adviser and I did that night. I. Rose to the top of the top three advisers in the firms that I was at crushing. Up till two thousand eight and that's Andrew Real estate in two thousand six, you watch those TV shows and you're like. House and started doing a couple of flips here and there none of them went well and then in. I was top of my game making a ton of money, and then I decided to develop a strip mall to move one of my stores into it, and that's right when the recession hit. So I had got deep into this this plaza and then I went almost broke. I almost went bankrupt doing this right during two thousand eight when the crash it and I got out of it because my girlfriend who just moved into my house ended up helping pay the mortgage, the utilities and I rented a couple of beggars out my house it you know truth hurts sometimes but that's what it took and now through fourteen. Not because they had support your that because I let my eyes sold my car. You know to build this business I. Let three homes go into foreclosure. I couldn't short seldom because when the market was really bad, it was it was still too early like the banks aren't as motivated. So they weren't sure they were like they were short-selling that they were getting hit on the tax on the back end and so I let them go into foreclosure and those decisions. I think sometimes the people listening right now that are going through a hard moment and they're making themselves bad for the wrong for I. Think it's really important to understand that the most successful people have these stories so to not like to walk through them a little bit more gracefully. So keep going I just wanted to land at because it is importing. I didn't want to spend too much time on the story but in Oh eight I mean I just breezed break past there was nothing easy about it. I mean one came away from being completely bankrupt making that decision with a brand new girlfriend who just moved in who could have just walked out the door with a question like that I have no choice in order to turn and then I got back. On my feet Oh, nine to fourteen got up to thirty six apartment units in cash going back to those times I I'll tell you what happened but you know I bought offers pennies on the dollar literally I look back at what I paid for them and I'm like holy smokes that was insane and in fourteen I didn't know what I didn't know and was borrowing money from banks personally, and then all of. A sudden the bank was going through a merger with a larger bank, they froze my lines of credit. They called my mortgages and I had to sell all thirty six units me and my wife will shoot my fiance. Then I had a dream house. So here I was you know Oh. Wait I lost all again all backed by fourteen, and then in fourteen I lost it all again and that was that was. Way Worse than the first time because you know you can you can fail once. But when you fail twice in all of the sudden, you really look at it you start questioning everything like what I question is, how can this rollercoaster be Real Anna high level financial adviser, and I'm writing this crazy rollercoaster something's wrong here I was wrong and that's when the journey began in fourteen because I literally had an awakening. In fourteen I almost lost. You know the love my life week she's not my wife and we have three month old by she almost was gone. The Dream House was gone the whole portfolio lose on in my bank accounts were gone and I. Have One of those moments where I said, you know what? I'm GONNA follow the wealthiest people I know when I'm going to seek out the wealthy to figure out what they do different. By that point in my life being high level advisor, what I've noticed is I've noticed that the wealthiest ones that I work with number one had the least amount of money in stocks like they never wanted to invest me and I'm like come on you got all these millions like Gimme some of it. They were in real estate and they were doing other things and then all of a sudden I started falling in connecting the dots loans just like wait you do this. We just say you do this to what is it that I wasn't taught as an advisor. Then all you guys are doing and that's when I entered. The World of the Family Office is in the ultra wealthy, and then I really started to see it and when I saw two, thousand, fourteen, anxious fifteen, I think fourteen or fifteen cheesecake backer in Salt Lake. City with a very wealthy individual, he told it's me and I'm like you got joking me this is what you're doing and we'll get into that but it's just like that's where the awareness started own up through two thousand, eighteen, my wife or flipping lots of houses. Two, hundred, sixty, two, you know up to that point we show on HDTV risky builders for flipping houses. We did that for six different six different houses we did there and it was awesome. But that's when I really started you secrets and I'm sure we'll talk. A bit about. So. So it's so first of all, you're obviously smart guy and I. Think. So a lot of people you guys were right now you can think like you have to be super smart to be successful and that is just not true. It's it's not true. You have to follow the pattern and success always leaves patterns and I. Think That's Chris started to establish because you are super smart and you failed two big ones almost lost. Your your personal life at the same time because the amount of pressure that goes on our relationship in moments like yours. Not Yourself at this point and I'm sure people can relate to this right now in their own lives and we're about to walk into I think a lot of people are there in their own world bubble I even had an epiphany when they were like I. Did I did a infomercial once twice actually and? And when it went on the air, the clients I got, we're not many people like I was like I didn't realize some of the people that were in the world that came in I was like, oh my gosh these are not people these this is called the world. You get what I'm saying and so we live in these bubbles and we think the world looks like the the life we've lived and that's just not true. 'cause there's all these micro bubbles of people that are communities feel like we're in a bubble right now and everybody a lot of people think it's fine and not saying it's not I'm so excited about the world walking into but if you were prepared for did now that's when you can really lose your ass and has some hard. Times those funds will build massive amounts of character, massive amounts of character if you not a victim, but let's talk a little bit about what's happening in the world right now while okay. So I mean, this is obviously my area of expertise is what I did is a high level advisor market patterns and understanding these trends, the signs, and you know the scariest thing is is right now. So many people are being led literally offically, I like to think of it as you know, remember the old. Cartoon, the Roadrunner, the roadrunner would always leave that big thing a smoke in the IOT was always chasing. But when the smoke dissipated, where was the every single time off the cliff in falling right at almost every time that's where we're at. We're all caught in this smokescreen of manipulation in what I call biggest magic trick. You're ever going to see in most of your lifetime's, which is what is happening right now you've got the perfect storm. You've got a crazy political battle going on you've. Got were coming off one of the best economies ever your way past the typical pattern that you would be with the stock market, which is year seven to ten year pattern were were coaching the twelfth year here, not too long and all of a sudden everybody watched the market tanking in March the got scared some smart ones bought near. We've made a lot of money, but here we are we're back above the march, the march highs. But what part of that makes any sense none of this? I mean it's kind of like I look around and I'm like. What are you? What are you smoking something like what glasses are you wearing that? You don't see what I see and what I had actually do is of go off of the beaten path and actually go almost underground into for the hedge funds trains talking to my friends there say what's going on here because the markets are not doing what they should be doing. The whole world is falling apart Hogan's literally the world on its knees and yet the market's Rayleigh and he explains he says, the hedge funds aren't trading the half volume. This is a giant manipulation because it's a political year and because there's a lot going on in the tech world in attack companies apple just announced. A two trillion dollar capitalisation. So you take Apple Amazon Netflix Microsoft and A missing in in alphabet, which is Google, you put them together they they make a huge part of the overall index is so of course they're doing well, but everything else is failing. So you're not getting a read on what's happening and That may bring this. Let me bring this down everybody's level right so that like people don't follow stocks and people don't understand this. I was in real estate investing when the market crashed right so embarrassed turns went under and things like that. Happen nobody thought those things would happen I i. understood what was happening but like my mom and like a good many of our clients wouldn't have understood like. You know. Sometimes. What what are you talking about? Great understand these big companies. But what does this mean for us? Right. So what does this mean for us I ranch? Yesterday giving. A real market like. People need to understand that we're not living in a real market in they need to get in their heads that the things that you see on the news, the things that you the like you know even unemployment I mean it wasn't long ago people like. Good I'm like Oh my God like we are we already knew the market was going to crash because of artificial intelligence. We already knew this was coming like the beginning of next year Spent. A lot of things. So what were we? What do we need was the average person you to think about right now jer and that's a great question. So I mean if you just take some simple advice from people at worn properties says vilo sell I don't lose money. He also says when others are greedy be fearful when others are fearful be greedy people are greedy right now. So what should you do? Well, I would say, I, Los, you already did. The buy low. So maybe now is the time to take your profits off the table all that stuff I talked about which is building up like where we're at we are literally on the bring up something happening when I don't re- Dalia, can't even tell you when it's happened, but it's going to in. So many people are going to get hurt when it happens my job is to bring awareness to people. So what do people need to do so learn from? The asked the first thing two, thousand, eight, nine. What are some of the things that happened while a lot of people you're in California a lot of people got caught with their pants down in a way because they were living off a lines of credit big equity in their homes and retirement accounts and investment accounts. We'll all of that went away in two thousand eight and it's going to happen this time. So if you've got home equity lines of credit in. Lines of credit right now and they're sitting there and you're comfortable. But you think that money is available to you. When this thing pops all starts going down, those can get stopped immediately they graduate reduced don't rely on that. If you have money in lines of credit I'm not telling this is inappropriate for everybody but what I did a lot of my my colleagues and friends at work with we took all of our money out of all of these lines of credit. Like yeah. But that causes. To, call the credit -lutely not but then don't just take your money out of your line of Credit and put it your bank account. That's silly. You gotta shuffle that money around you got to move it around the Cup game right now not not in this cup, hide the money, but do it. You know obviously legally and I say, hide the money. They can macho sure now listening diversify accounts take the money from the one banks line of Credit and put it over here to community bank or what what most people will do the ultra wealthy I mean, and you can look at it as they built privatized banking accounts which are not at banks their held at mutually owned insurance companies big ones. They create these banking systems through mutual insurance companies. Get. There is full control of their money. That's the thing that mcdumber stand for everyone. So I ball Chris were already getting messages in. You're saying just like August I just started building my portfolio and other people are like Oh. My Gosh I've got my walks do I do right now? We sing by a Burkett. Every. People are happy. They're liking their liking that we're having this conversation, which is great. So you guys if you have questions, obviously go pop it into the chat so we can see them right. But it okay. So so okay. So you guys. When he says, move your account, move your money around. You know I told all my all my clients to go get lines of credit and pull their line of credit out and so many my you know this is the unfortunate thing. A lot of people like I, don't want debt but. Like. STUDT. Lake. Crab it is to be used. That's why we try and get high credit scores not to keep not die with an eight hundred credit score. The point is to actually use the credit score to be able to get access to money, and so there's accounts like whoever you would go to normally for likes investing your money. Ameriprise plot, you can Google and find lots of places that set up your 401k's and things like that. They have accounts that you could actually put your money in that the chances of anything happening to it they're not an adviser. And I'm not advising you but you know think outside the box because even when I work with an adviser I I have never settled for Justin adviser. My first adviser was long steady wins the race 401k's I. You know and as like Magadan inflation is growing faster I was smart enough to look at going these is going to work. They're not GONNA pay for a retirement for me. This is just crazy and so i. it took me a few years and I have a great network to really find an advisor that was working with really high net with Networth people. At the time I wasn't at that level, but I enrolled them to take my money and start working with me and so what happens is you start to start to get better advice because you'll people like that around you. So I keep doing what I'm doing like I always like I'm always like what another million in I know that sounds crazy but that I'm always Like in that game like creating cash flow, because that's the part that I understand that men. I. Grabbed some like Chris and a someone like Chris says, no, you can't keep that million dollars there or could be twenty thousand eggplants right now one of my clients like got a great two, hundred, fifty, thousand in the next couple of months. Great. Why don't you do at the? So, two hundred fifty and two months scenes hard I'm like, yeah. But cut your cut your time in half do it in a month like charm yourself inside out right now make sure you're coaching good coach join yourself inside out right now and hit those numbers early. So people like Chris can come in and how move that money in places that actually is secure I like liquid. Like I like real estate on looking to buy when the market crashes. I'm definitely looking to buy a building and things like that much commercial real estate market crash in like Woohoo that makes you feel even more secure because I don't know anything about commercial real estate but I know I wanna get in on something like that. KNOW WE WANNA buy like two three acres of land right and build like epoch house on it here. California. Some sharing this with you guys because I'm. Like I don't know what I don't know and I learnt from people like Chris that I kept my mind focused on my vision of what I wanted and I kept focusing focusing on creating cash people like this come in diversify it. So okay. So on. The moving money around. So it's really important. It's simple and a lot of people I. Love that you said that you told people to go take their money out of the lines of credit and the first thing people will say when you tell them that is I don't why I want that payment but you know what cost is only an issue in the absence of value. What is the value if when this does go down, you don't have access to your cash to buy Tesla or hundred and fifteen like I did back in in March in. By the way I've sold Tesla sense that but you don't have the option to take advantage of opportunities when they come if you're not willing to get ahead of the curve, which is exactly what you're saying. So the cost yes. Is there an additional cost using the lines of credit and shuffling the money there is but the cost is so minute compared to what you'll be able to do with it. So let's let's talk about some of the biggest things we've all been taught about money asking a lot about 401k's which they dude lines including. Careful. Careful So. Let's just put it on the record like Chris Advising not advising you what would you do? Personally I zero money in the stock market except for shorting the S&P five hundred in shorting certain banks. So that's where I man. If you ever watched the movie the big short to understand what shorting needs watch the movie I truthfully I don't believe in 401k's traditional sense because what? have been taught to do is to give up control of our s knowledge today if you took a dollar out of your wallet your dollar. Dollars. Worth the most it will ever be worth they just printed three trillion dollars folks where do you think that three trillion gets value from? Well, it doesn't get value from the Fort Knox like a used to because the leprechauns found a way. To Take that, rainbow. Four, Knox steal the goal. So now the new money they print steals its value from your current dollars. It's Paul inflation to hidden tax in. If you don't understand that that's step one, but we are taught to give up control of our best ours put money in 401k's for that money him US sure you get a deduction today on it. So from a tax. Standpoint it helps you but really what are you doing? You're not paying tax on the seed and then you know you're paying tax on the harvest you put money in these not roths way me's you're getting a tax deduction on today raider you're GonNa pay tax on all of it, and you gave up the opportunity to be in control of that money all those years in what in in. Exchange for a return on the stock market, you could get somewhere else. So that's the first thing. The second thing think about what we do with money because what we do with money is different than what we do with things that money buys would you ever buy a loaf of bread come home that loaf of bread in your freezer shut the freezer door in week five, ten or? Fifteen years. Then take them loaf out look at it and be like I can't wait eat would you buy your car and wait five ten fifteen years to drive it? Would you buy your Dream House in wait five ten or fifteen years to Boob in your dream house? No. But that's what you do with your money because you've been taught to do that. So it's not your fault. It's people you know when I used to be when I was in advisor that's what we were taught to do. So I'm not faulting advisors. We're taught to be professional sales people when when I wasn't advisor of no longer in an adviser, I'm a mentor now and I got off at that little your path there. But I don't like for one case I, think the biggest mistake people. Make is giving up control of their money, and that is absolutely why people ride the roller because if you learned with the wealthy, no and how to be in control of your money so that opportunities common you take advantage of them you have zero risk that would be something that would change each and every one of your. So let's the number one selling needs to think about right now. The number one focus is they need to understand that there's something coming. They need to understand that if you're chasing returns in the stock market right now, you're going to get bitten the. But so that's step number one number two you need to start looking at where does wealth Whereas big money, go that gives them guarantees I'll tell you work goes goes to mutually owned insurance companies by the billions and trillions is where it goes. Because in these accounts, you have full control, you earn a guaranteed four percent, the the mutual insurance companies pay you given at an when you want your money. Yet just go and take it and use it. But when you use your money in these accounts are privatized banking infant banking as a lot of different names. This is just one thing I'm just trying to give you some tactical stop you take your money out your money never stopped earning interest. So if you had an account, you deposited your money in that insurance company, pay you. For example, when you took my, you still earned interest I get it was that was my first. That was my first investment, my first investment as. As a single woman and I said I want. I want something that if I ever needed cash it made me feel like pull out of it and it would still grows if the money was still in there. Is One hundred percent right four percent for sure. But often it's much higher at least on my accounts and I still have that account and that is. A feel the safest out of anything I use that account when Delta House I pulled money out I bank ruled some construction than I. put the money back in like. Four or five months later, the goal is to always get the money back in because you don't want to take it out and keep it out but you're paying interest to yourself I mean. You become your own bank. So it really we actually had somebody come in and teach that one of our mastermind as. We had a couple people do it one of them actually got cancer right after she she she had account for her husband account for her thank. God because they probably able to do that afterwards and that set their family out for really I. Did it for a security when I was older the. Tax Free Income. I was. Later on in life if I needed it and that's really what it is. So this isn't the answer for everything but this is the starting place where money should start. So you really all you need to do to do that as change one thing, and that's where your money goes I. You put your money over there. You take your money back out. Let's say you're. A big stock person then you wait for the market to go down when everybody else's fearful you take your money from your banking policy, move it over into the stock market. Now you're making money twice organic real estate, put your money over here. I take it out and go your real estate I making money twice you. If you're the bang, you're doing what anx do. See. Here's here's what I remember earlier. I Santa followed wealthy people, multi, millionaires, and billionaires, and you know what? I figured out I figured this out but I figured out what they do with a really good APP is not letting their money. Sit there money is constantly in motion and they describe it like a raging river. You'd never eat fish out of a stagnant pond. So. Why is your money sitting like a set in pot you need your money moving. So you just gotTa find a way to continuously move your money in and out you described and then make money the entire time. That's what all my videos are like. If you underneath my name there, my website like I got a ton of training videos on this, they're all free like. Now, it's just can't. Chris Nago Dot com for slash resource is that what is resources? Resources Resources. My website, you go to the resources to have a ton of free videos and you just watching it teaches you all this stuff that I've learned. Awesome well, I got a traffic coming up next in cell as were. We're doing client acquisition like crazy and going all in bullishly online right now. You know because of the fact that we know that this market is moving in that direction and we wanna get so far ahead of the game and Chris never even talking nobody has a crystal ball could be as soon as six to nine months it could be twelve sixteen months. which would mean that you still have Tom. How do you definitely have time? That's good news. Now, US still have time to be able to create even more cash flow to get going. But now is not a time to sit back and. And be complacent. Now's the time tobacco. Go I have. Done enough. Time to think about overflow you WANNA get into overflow right now momentum creates massive amounts of overflow. So nobody knows what the mark like. Be Shit store. It to be a mess and the mess. A lot of people, in their. CLEANING IN WE PLAN ON BEING that our clients plan on being not as well. So. Thank you Chris.

Inside LAs Covid crisis podcast

"Today the story of how los angeles county became one of america's worst covert hot spots. I went to a outdoor funeral. For the mother of juliana. Menez says it was in a parking lot of a church. In south los angeles was socially distant gathering attendees there were face masks and plastic shields and kept distance from each other there was a marriott band that came in played a song and played a tribute and everyone. There wore masks the entire time in including the band members who are singing. Some levin is a journalist for guardian. Us and for the past few weeks. He's been reporting on the pandemic in los angeles who was just a surreal and really sad scene. I saw people just wiping their eyes and crying. Under layers of masks and face shields and juliana who had lost her mother and her stepfather saying that they made sure not to hug each other. And you know they made sure to keep separate from each other in. This family was very frightened and so they wanted to do everything possible to be as safe as they could. Funeral that psalm. Describes is sadly one of many taking place across los angeles county in recent weeks. A third of all keva deaths. There have happened since christmas. Leaving hospitals and funeral services struggling to cope from the guardian. I'm rachel humphries. Today in focus inside l. a.'s covy crisis from you've described that funeral. In a car park and owen juliana. He was laying her mother to rest. Who is she and what can you tell me about her. And her family juliana men s maza forty one year old los angeles resident who lost both her mother and stepfather to cove it just eleven days. Apart in december. Her mother maria was sixty. Six years old retired her stepfather. Alberto was fifty four years old and had worked as a handyman. they both had pre existing illnesses. That made them vulnerable. She had lung condition. Pulmonary fibrosis and already depending on oxygen. Before she got covid and he had both asthma and diabetes and juliana lived with her parents in the same household and her brother and his family lived right next door. My mother was a very struggled woman. You know life had already given her many punches She was very hard working woman. She works in a different fields. I wanna say her last job. Was that at the machine operator but you know. She did whatever she had to a lot of labor. You know whether it was cleaning you know selling clothes a different different types of jobs to be earning t near my brother and always talked me to be strong to strive to for better future. Sounds like a family. He were very close very close. Yes her family's extremely close Like many families. They have gatherings they spend time together. And at some point at the end of november all of them got infected with covid is more than ten family members at the moment that los angeles was experiencing its worst surge yet of the pandemic. It's really start of a two month increase in cases that was exponential and catastrophic and devastating. I remember my mom had shed wounded the sweater cashmere type sweater and she said she felt like an allergic reaction like something in her throat. So she had a little calls and then She took some medication. It kind of went away and on sunday thanksgiving weekend on rental mom on my stepfather depot started with Persisting call on tuesday. I took them both each to their primary doctor and they basically just Were prescribed kassir on friday night. He told me you know what. I can't fell short of breath. I feel my buddy weekly. I'm gonna see what point does when we took him to the hospital december fourth so once they both got sick and we're having trouble breathing. She had no choice but to take her parents. To martin luther king junior community hospital in south los angeles close to her home. It all just happened really fast. Her mother passed away on december nineteenth and her stepfather was intimated on december fifteenth and he passed away on december thirtieth and the hospitals are closed to visitors so she couldn't be with either of them in their final days. Once they were admitted to the hospital she never saw them again. Just such an unimaginable and devastating situation for juliana. It's also an incredibly common story in los angeles right now for so many families from your conversations with giuliano if he found this has been like for how will impact is this having on her one of the worst parts of the experience was that after her mother passed away juliana was able to go to the hospital and very briefly. See her mother's body to say goodbye. But because of concerns around. Cova ed shanta wear a gown and gloves and a mask of course to do that. She was in this room trying to say her goodbyes and tell her mother that she loved her. I can't even describe the words of of the feeling of senior mother's spotty. They're not filling comfortable to fill restricted to hugging her kissing her. In the sense of guilt noggin able to kiss her without the mask. Because any deceased is terrible. Feeling among explaining myself correct Understanding how what. I'm trying to sell you absolutely know having to having to restrict your sauce Pretty pretty heavy told us some that his parents were treated at martin. Luther king hospital in south. La and you went there recently as part of your reporting what was that visit like i mean what can you tell us about the hospital. So martin luther king junior community hospital is a one hundred thirty one bed facility in south los angeles which is one of the hardest hit neighborhoods in the region. There essentially the epicenter of the epicenter of the crisis in america right now. So located in a poor neighborhood primarily latino and black and just four percent of the patients there have private health insurance so in normal times the surrounding community just has so much chronic illness compared to the rest of los angeles respond three twenty six degree. Betty rapid response wrong three twenty six. Then be three thousand. Swiss spent some time inside the hospital and the beginning of january and this was when away was at the peak of the worst phase of the crisis yet and at that time the hospital was treating nearly double the number of patients than its normal capacity. dr elaine bachelor. The ceo said they just have been forced to do so much care with the same amount of resources today. Our on one hundred thirty one hospital has two hundred and twenty five In patients and one hundred and thirty five cova pay shots while we are licensed for twenty. Icu beds and we have forty icu. Patients in the hospital. Right now. So when i got there on the outside we walked through some of these large white tents essentially field hospitals that they'd set up in the parking lot for triage and intake and their patients who are suspected of having covid are separated assessed. They're lying in gurneys with these small curtain dividers between them and then inside the hospital it felt like they had re purposed every inch of the hospital into treatment spaces. So there's an old gift shop inside that had gurneys inside the small sign on the door. That said you know patient karen progress. And then icu. I was really struck by the sight of just of patients back to back lying on gurneys inside a narrow hallway and you've doctors rushing by in these enclosed air purifying helmets that look like astronaut year and so graham to think of these people fighting for their lives or being stuck in this hallway because that is the only place they can go. Tell you about what. It's like them to work in this hospital at the mainland to nurse on as korea after my visit she's the nurse manager for the intensive care unit and she told me a bit about what this last surge has been like for for her and for her staff being not a great outcome because they are coming in sicker so we are seeing what feels like a higher mortality. And i'm not too sure about the data but it does feel like a higher mortality with the second surge and so we've had A lot of deaths in icu. and it's been emotionally across thing for the staff there. Anything else that you would want to share about this moment. Honestly honestly i. I don't even know what anymore everybody says you know. Continue social distancing. Continue wearing your mouth. But i think at this point is the situation is so dire. So what we find. The biggest challenge is when patients get admitted families. Don't talk about what their wishes are. I worked to not have capacity to make medical decisions for myself. This is what i would want. Ninety percent of the time families will tell us. We don't know we've never had that conversation. That's our biggest challenge in. Icu is just have more of those conversations with your family. it's okay. We need to release the stigma from that. Some people ending up in this hospital. I talked about this with. Dr elaine bachelor. Who's the head of this hospital and she was saying that one of the biggest systemic problems with our healthcare system is that it's essentially separate and unequal systems. So people who don't have private health insurance don't have access to good healthcare in normal times. And so that means that the people who are requiring health now are coming in with so many serious illnesses that make it much much harder to keep them alive and there's just serious disparities in the kind of treatment that different communities in los angeles get. We're located in a community. That's voluble these. Aren't the us drivers the people that stocked grocery shelves in clean up so they've continued to be exposed to cove it in the community before the covid pandemic we were seeing more patients in our emergency department than most hospitals and the people that are coming in or people who have in stages and complications of treatable chronic illness amputations and wound care for diabetics. Are the number one surgical procedure. We do hospital so even before the pandemic we were dealing with the community. I was in. Its own little crisis right on and the patients that we see Cohen patients are predominantly latino eighty percent of our Ends are latino. The situation became so dire at mo hospital that the ceo. Dr bachelor sent an urgent letter to the california governor gavin newsom just before christmas requesting help and explaining how cove it was devastating her community in south la and overwhelming her staff and her facilities and the governor in response sent three national guard medical teams and extra nurses. But when i was there two weeks later the situation was still very serious. You described being at the funeral de leon. His mother at the start of this interview. And i wondered how the high death toll in hospitals like martin luther king genia have impacted the funeral industry in the county so in recent weeks. We've seen just total breakdown of the funeral. Industry in the entire region of southern california. Basically every part of the system is overwhelmed. One of most grim illustrations of how dire. This has become set. There's actually a backlog of more than twenty seven hundred bodies stored at hospitals and coroner's office and because because of that local air quality regulators announced that the county had to actually lift the limits on the number of cremations that are allowed in the region. Cremations release toxic mercury emissions. And there's usually a cap on the number allowed but because there are so many bodies to have to speed up. The cremations sounds incredibly grim. I mean presumably this backlog is impacting funeral services that that aren't out. Gunning impacting the whole process. And of course it's grieving families who are suffering the consequences of this so if you lose a family membership covid right now during this horrible wave it you have to spend hours and hours calling funeral homes trying to find someone who will essentially take your loved one and you'll be told that the mortuaries are full and they will be full for the foreseeable future and if people are able to find mortuary with the capacity to take on their loved one or if they get on a waiting list often and told that they have to wait more than a month for a service. So it's just an awful situation for people who have already gone through something so so traumatizing. What was this. Like for for juliana. What she tell you about her own experience of this extremely painful for juliana to just have to wait and to deal with all of those really grim horrifying logistics when the whole system is overrun. Just made the entire process for her. Even more painful did have other families services ahead before of us so the almost three weeks had to wait to to be. Have my mom's memorial pain and of pain having await you know you don't get to be in peace or have a little more peace until you know that they're put to rest their body coming up. Why win cases still so high. A parts of la county starting to ease restrictions. London stock exchange group is here to be your essential global markets infrastructure and data partner. Wet open is just a platform but a philosophy giving you the freedom to make your mark in the world. Elsag open makes more possible. Some you've been reporting on this for weeks. You talked about why. Martin luther king junior community hospital is seeing such a high caseload. But why has the county been so badly hit one factor that makes los angeles uniquely. Vulnerable is that we have a severe housing crisis. Here most crucially. We have a huge problem with overcrowding. You have large working class families and multigenerational households that are sometimes all sharing a one bedroom apartment l. a. has one of the highest rates of overcrowded homes in america so that means when one person brings the virus home everyone falls sick because of rising cova cases in los angeles county. The message there is now to also mask up at home It will just add a layer of protection while we get through this surge and try to get our case. Numbers are transmission. Way down is interesting. Isn't it you talk about overcrowding. And i think for many of us in the u. k. The los angeles. We've often been shown as hollywood's not poor areas. Is this a crisis. That has disproportionately affected different neighborhoods. Yeah the toll of the pandemic here is not equal so proportionately we've seen that latinos are suffering. The most can dying at a rate that is two and a half times greater than white people and black americans in los angeles are dying. At a rate that is one and a half times greater than white residents. We've seen this pandemic just looks completely different depending on where you live. Why do you think this has got saved bind now. One of the main factors is that. There's a ton of fatigue with restrictions here in los angeles and california more. Broadly has had some form of restrictions throughout this entire pandemic and so i think people are kind of exhausted with that and people are giving up. You know trying to be safe and then combined with that. We've had the holidays one after the other. I think from halloween to thanksgiving christmas to new year's just so many different family gatherings and social gatherings. That probably should not have happened but did well has. The leadership from public. Officials been lying. Public officials have been begging people to stay home and wear masks socially distance throughout the entire pandemic but because the rules have changed so much and so frequently i think that people have sort of stopped paying attention and they've stopped listening to those guidelines And at the same time you've had accusations of hypocrisy with public officials most famously. Our governor gavin newsom was actually caught eating a this posh restaurant and napa valley. And that doesn't it. I mean i think that really was a turning point in his leadership here. You can quibble about the guidelines etcetera etcetera. But the spirit of what. I'm preaching all. The time was contradicted. And i got on that. And so i want to apologize to you because i need to preach and practice not just preach with this. Rising cases has governor gavin. Newsom tightened restrictions. Are things changing. We've gone back and forth throughout the entire pandemic. i think we've had three different rounds of the state doing statewide restrictions. But actually this week. At the end of january we've lifted the state restrictions and los angeles is going to be removing some of its restrictions. Right now we are in a position. Projecting four weeks forward with a significant decline. In the case rate positivity rates we are anticipating declined still more decline in hospitalizations and more decline. I see us. And that's why we're lifting that stay at home order effective immediately today. The reason is that we're starting to finally trend in the right direction. That being said the numbers are still astronomically. A and so. I think some people are struggling to understand why we aren't keeping much stricter regulations in place to one hundred million shots in one hundred days is not the end. Point is just the start. We're not stopping there. The end goal is to be cova. Nine thousand nine hundred. Do you feel more optimistic now. That joe biden is president and has a very different plan to tackle corona virus than donald trump. Did there's a lot of hope here that this will be a turning point in the pandemic especially when it comes to vaccines but at the same time. The toll has already been so so devastating that it feels like some of it might just be too late for so many families that it is too late. Finally some you've been reporting on this tragedy but you will say very sadly experienced kobe in your own life of your grandmother who lives in la contracted it and passed away. How has this affected the way you think about what is happening at the moment. It's been really hard for me to go through this process myself while reporting on this. This is one of the most traumatic losses i've ever experienced in. I got a call about i. Grandmother being moved into the icu. Right as i was heading to mlk hospital to report inside of an icu. And i think experiencing this personally has made clear to me. Just how prevalent the viruses in la right now. It just feels like everyone here. Can't escape it where all sort of harmed by this catastrophe in one way or another so. I think there's just a lot of trauma on top of trauma for everyone in la whether it's reporters or essential workers or people going about their lives. And i think my my grandma's passing sorry and i've flown felt like our country has been failing us in so many ways during this pandemic and i think my grandma's passing really put that into sharp focus for me. We should not have lost her and her death absolutely feels like an indictment of our government and our health care system. You know we did everything right throughout the pandemic right throughout the pandemic but it wasn't enough and the fact that she lost her life after nine months of being isolated and after nine months of following all the rules gestion of happened. The thing that strikes me as being so difficult in all of this is trying to remember the people who died when this much death happening at the moment. What was your grandmother's name. Sam and how would he be remembering her. My grandma debbie had overcome so much in her life. She actually grew up an orphan. She was basically abandoned by her parents at age three and left at a nunnery and was raised by nuns without family and Overcame all of that to just build an incredible family and you know give a life to her children to my mom that you know she never had as a kid and you know she does sleep behind an incredible legacy here So so beloved by her family by the and long beach. And i think we are all suffering through this horrible feeling. That was just too soon and it wasn't her time she was eight years old. She was healthy. She had two decades left in her. I believe really believe that You know me and my brother who live in. La did everything we could to both keep her safe as well as keep her company. And so you know we would go to her house and have these outdoor socially distance backyard hangouts where we'd each chinese food and burritos and every other cuisine. We could bring. And i feel so grateful and lucky to have that time with her but we weren't able to have christmas like we normally did. We weren't if have thanksgiving we have any of those family gatherings because we were following the rules and we wanted to keep her safe and ultimately it just wasn't enough and that is so unfair and should not have happened. So i'm so sorry for your and your family's loss and say much for speaking to me. Thank you so much. That was sam.

What Book Hooked You?

23:43 min | 2 years ago

133 Author Isabel Sterling

"This is what book hooked you. I'm Brock Shelley, and thanks for listening, I guess, for this episode is is about sterling who's booking? These witches don't bring is out now from razor bell. I was glad to get the chance to talk to is about to hear what she was into when she was in her why years, how she got into writing and what books have really influenced her right now. So listen. So isabelle. What book hooked you? So the book that hooked me was L enchanted by Gail Carson LeVine. I actually still have my childhood copy that has the instinct get with reading sticker in it. So what time what how old were you, then when you read this book? Oh, jeez. Probably, and he's third or fourth grade. Okay. And why this book, what is about this book? That is the book that really comes to mind when asked this question. Yes, this is the first book that I can remember, you know, picking out the book reading it, and just wanting to live in that world view books that I read over and over and over again, as a child, I'm not much of every reader still to this day. And this is one that I always wanted to go back to, and especially loved, you know, all the different creatures and all the different made up languages. It would just so captivating too. Young me just wanted to disappear into those pages. So tell us then because this was a book that you read kind of in your middle grade years, what we would call now. What type of child when you kind of reflect back with type of child were you that this is a book that kind of really you latched onto? See I was very much a school kid in that. I love school. I loved learning. And I think that's part of what I liked about this book, is that, you know, Ella with a girl who was very smart. He was very funny inches good with languages. And that was that was without her more so than yeah, she wasn't mean she ended up with the prince, but she wasn't to Princess. She was kind of a normal, girl, the wisdom, you know, obviously with some difficulties with her. You know, very Lessing cash Peters, but I think just being a very. Kind of wish kid when it wasn't cool for girls to be at the pub, one of the reasons rather like this bucks. And so over all then beyond just this book, what type of reader were you were you someone that read widely, or was Ellen Shanta kind of that one book that kind of cropped up, but for the most part, maybe you weren't as big a a reader as most. Know I was a huge. I loved reading definitely kind of propelled me into a right a lot fantasy. You know, like most people my age grew up with Harry Potter near those coming out right around the same time that was roughly the same age hairy. So I guess I'm gonna last fantasy and I also read a lot of once I got to lose before it, even we really had why it was like the team fiction section and borders. I lived in action when I was growing up on all the older. So then, as you got older more in that what we call now the why a stage where you a big reader still did books were you, did you still have quiet for books? I'll say or did kind of adolescence in school kind of slow things down down, as far as you're reading life goes in high school. I still is very much a big reader. I do drop off really. When I went to college, but in high school, I read I read all the twilight books, I read almost everything that make cat it put out. I read the entire, I think, Cate Tiernan, the sweet series twenty bucks in that series at all of those, I was just reading, constantly I had grew up with a ton of siblings and reading, kind of like my alone time, just keep from the men, that's at home. And was it around this time that you kind of had the ideal or were making attempts at writing stories of your own? Not really. I really didn't do much writing. When I was younger, I did a lot of times of. I know it I guess it'd be like, sort of internal whole fan fiction, I never wrote it down. But my parents were divorced every other weekend we would drive an hour and a half between the houses. And I would spend the entire ride thinking about stories and they David stories and won't their extra character in this book. You know what would that person do? And now that self insert sort of dance it, but it never actually wrote it down in part. It was Julie to it was so dark out when we're doing the drive. I couldn't read. All right. I just can't imagine stories what point in your life. Did you kind of have that drive or have that wanting desire to start writing? Yeah. So I think they came to it late. I didn't start writing until I was in grad school. And I think part of that was channeled my creativity in a different way through college. I was actually a music composition, major I was writing, you know, string quartets and, you know, choral music, and that kind of stuff. So it's rep a lot of my creative energy for the four years. I was in college. And then when I went to old kind of gotten burned out through like the news thing I realized, I had gone from there is much more. I was like, no really good compared to other people who are trying to do that. And then went to college, and I was like, oh, no, not that good at this, and I never had the I didn't love it enough to fight for the kind of growth needed to make it as a. He's a greater. So when I went to grad school and for completely different thing and went forth. If there's so worked in student housing for a long time, my second year, I would miserable, and I needed an outlet, but I was still had no interest in going back to dick. And that's when I was like, oh, I should write a novel because that seems like something one would just do. So was there a book or maybe a couple of books that were kind of maybe get a little bit of credit for being part of that inspiration to kind of get you started to right? You know, I'm not sure if there is a book that I read and I went, oh I could write this. But I do know a few months before started writing is when I first started rereading me. That rerating but getting back into reading, so the summer before I started my source book, I read the entire hunger games trilogy. I read his in debtor's first books, something change deadly just starting to get back into why. An I think that helps because I was back into sort of a reading group at that point, I don't know if I had read, though, they might not have had the sought to write a book. And so then when you started what were those first attempts would John ra- category, kind of what kind of themes or elements where you can play around with. Yeah. Some very very but then I wrote, which was total garbage. I basically through in everything that I liked it tried to make all work in one book. So I had like every type of fantasy creature you could imagine. I had, you know, some of these like separate magic factions. And, you know the one girl who had, you know the power of both. Oh my goodness. What's going to happen? And so that was a train wreck. But it was it was fun. You know, I think that I did you know, Raimondo in twenty twelve is my first time I wrote something I did it with the whole story in a month is the first time ever trying that gave me a lot of confidence of, like, hey, I can do this thing. So then I had to actually learn how to revise it was hot. And then from there, I wrote the next year, I wrote a high fantasy novel, there's a little bit better. And then I wrote something that was sort of slow historical fiction, kind of witches have like a non linear time for like timely. And then Finally, I ended up writing the first draft Bush's. Don't burn would have been the late winter early full of twenty fifteen sounds. Right. And so as your writing was there a way that, you know, because this isn't necessarily, what you went to school for, what did you do to kind of I'll say hone your craft maybe at writing are, how did you kind of get plugged in to whether you want to see the industry are just getting into maybe best practices when it came to exploring? An expanding your craft. Yeah, that's a good question. The very first thing I did kinda hit went to Google and looking, and they ended up pretty sure it was a paid course totally lie on how to revise her novel, of course. And I was like, this is exactly what I need to do to revise, I, but this is great. So I went through that to all of the. The very detailed process of reading your novel and figuring out what you have and what it is you meant to write. And how do you bridge that gap? And that gave me kind of my first Dacian of, like characterization and the promises you make reader and world building that makes sense. So that was really helpful kind of laying the groundwork. And then I will enter talking to other writers, but I found. Dinnertime mentioned earlier. She has a wonderful amount of resources on her books. I and I was telling her kind of as she was first writing those blog posts. So I kind of used that to help hone in on what religion meant to me. I met some key partners. Some of who I'm I'm still in contact with today. The it though the sharing of our work really helpful in getting teeth back. I'm also joined a local writers grew to share chapters. So to try to find everywhere to get information as I could kind of goes back to being a very focused person, and I didn't have the money or time to go back to learn to do this sort of tried to create my own learning environment as much as possible. And so then after putting all that into it and having these other stabs at books you mentioned it already you have your first book, these, which is don't burn, which is out by razor Bill. So let's start talking about this book and give us the synopsis of what this book's about. Yeah. Chevys which is don't burn is about Hannah while she was out lesbian, but she's closeted as a witch in modern day Salem, and things kinda take a turn for the weird and sukey when blood witch in danger territory and starts going after heaven. And so. What was that? Maybe spark, or what kind of got you that initial idea that got you writing this book. Where I think part of it was having a lifetime of reading and watching stuff about which is so that's always sort of maybe percolating, a conscious, but I would just one day mighty my own business. And all of a sudden I had this character, my head, and she was working on the touristy magic, Sean Bensalem and was just irritated about the whole thing because she was real, which, and that was kinda the seed of who is this person? And what is her story, and it kind of snowballed from there until you're much in that? You always, you know, grownup sort of watching, and, you know, experience different medias. It had to do with witches. So what may have been some of those that may have in direct or indirect way influenced this book? Many. I definitely I think the Tiernan book first week, he reads when I was a kid. I think that just really solidified like the love, which is the magic system. Isn't it all the same? But I think what if I became that in Harry Potter, there was no no going back. I was going to be anywhere. Just forever. I think I would have the Laskar vendor also played a big role really got me into the elemental magic, which pinks makes up part of the book goes, it'd be the main ones. I did. I read this any kind of which book and I read twitches when that was for coming out, and those were scholastic like books are books. I remember getting those out anything 'cause I would read. So you mentioned an if I think I'm counting. This is was is your fourth attempt at at a book to get published, or at least complete. So when you look at this one and you compare it to the other three what kind of stands out that this one is the one that ended up kind of coming together and, and working, we'll say. Listening for book that I had written very and I think the thing that made it different when ended up being the one, I think, with the most heart in the most authenticity. And I think part of that was as I was writing all these books, I kept writing books with more and more, your characters in them, and not really knowing one, I and then Louis book, finally, after I'd written the first draft the light bulb went up, and I was like, oh, I live living. That's why I keep reading these books. And so once I had come out and was experiencing life. And I bet my wife, Michelle mauve and, you know, experience lives, as somebody who is longer street changed a lot about what I knew about these characters. And I think infusing that into the book made it much more like authentic and real and also just every books I tried to level up my skills, as far as characterization. Apply. And I think it was the combination of, you know, kind of like getting getting to that point as a writer, where I was reading and all of us feels I need interests, but also has the heart that needed to go on it, too. And. Taking a step back. Was it always sort of when you initially kind of set off to right? Did you always sort of having in mind that you would be writing within the why a space or did it kind of come that, as you were writing the type of stories that you were ended up kind of gravitating towards on the page would end up in just happened to fit back into why? Or was it purposeful that you were writing why? Yeah. It was it was always intentional that I was writing. Why novels only from the first one those are always the books that I loved the most. And I never really because I stopped reading more or less when I meant to Paula JR. And then when I came back to reading, and it was back to why. And I haven't really got too much into it. Delta. Who's always meant to be right from the beginning. And so what through all this, what is your reading life like now as a writer, is it something where you really try to kind of get immersed in other fantasy type stories and just wanna kinda soak in? Maybe what other people are doing their do you try to maybe avoid that? So as not to get to impressionable and you know, fearful that you might end up borrowing too much from someone. Actively drafting in new project, typically, don't read much during that like six to eight week period. Smokey just don't have time because I tried to write as much as I you know, right in the morning, and I go to work come home owner. And there's what time to read so much, so during them, they usually and more going to be doing like industry type pud tax and stuff. But when I'm actually drafting I try to read, I'm trying to read more broadly, in general, but I try to read as many different genres. You know, to top of the fantasy. So I kinda know what's happening in my sphere. But I also branch out to, you know, contemporary around palm and thrillers and try to get his wine of abreast of different genres, mostly within why that just kinda my happy place, though. I am trying to relive it more adult stuff just to, you know, learn from other authors and see what they're doing, but I don't actively ever like a voice something or. I was trying to read broadly. And they thought you to in terms of the authors that I'm reading trying to make sure I mean here, even different voices that I have heard. And as you've been reading widely I'm wondering is there a book that maybe really surprised you as far as you know, because it's not necessarily, maybe a John RIA, or a topic that you would typically, you know read on your own, but Reno really just kind of grabbed you in surprised you with the story and the writing? Yeah. I think probably your three that immediately come to mind. I, I just read this weekend, I red white and Royal blue, which is an ill. Don't wrong calm. And it was so good. I can't even speak intelligently about it yet because it was so good. We're just a characterization was, so deep and the tone and the voice is just so like snappy, and funny to that one I normally don't go for the you don't stuff. But it was amazing. And then that one, I think Casey, Kristen, I think, is the author of that one. And then actually devoiding from was, like, I don't wanna read that it's not really my thing. I don't wanna read that and the girls from everywhere they hide you highlight. I kept putting on my I don't know if I like time travel, I'm sure him like this and turn tastic in totally on my mind. And I was mad that I should. Sooner 'cause it was so good. And then the other one I just read recently with the called once and future, which is the like gender Benz King Arthur in space, so good. Muslim that really like a stays person typically, but it was based was magic. And you know there's a ton of your character. So I was having to give it a try. And again, it was so good. It was so tightly plotted. So those are ones that I probably wouldn't normally pick up but I just loved. And then when you kind of look over the years that you've been writing, you know, actively in kind of purposefully. What do you think maybe is the biggest kind of lesson? You've learned through the whole process. Good question. I think the biggest thing that I've learned or that I'm trying to learn is your patient, and let him books, take the time they need to take. So with my sequel that's supposed to me now in twenty twenty. Was super disaster to write had to write it from scratch board time. And I think a lot of that was because I kept saying, like, well, I don't really know strike to be that was gonna write it figure it out and pushed through and gotta hit my deadlines when they're just get it done. And I think doing that as taught me, you know, you need to allow yourself time to figure out what the story is you can't just force yourself. Look out the words down, and I'm gonna keep going forward when the word part golden right direction. So I think patience has been the thing that I have learned that him continuing to learn. Right. So let's we're gonna wind down. Now, I'm going to ask you a few questions as we do the first one being what is your favorite movie, that's based on a book? Probably the Harry Potter movie. So they're always feel good like going back to those. Okay. But when everybody answers that I always make them, choose, which one maybe all of them is your favorite. That's really hard. Probably prisoner of asking, and I think that's the one where her mind it gets the punch Malfoy the say, so we'll go with that. And then my second, not Harry Potter, one, I think, by more recent one would be left Simon love that movie an episode. Great. Next question is there a book or a series that you're willing to admit you've either never read or never finished? I not finished the rainbows series that one. I started it. And then I just fell off. Good. And then finally, what is the last great book that you've read? I'm going to stay the red white and Royal blue again, I am obsessed with that book. I read it in twenty four hours a guy stayed up late. Got up early. Read it for like six hours about eating taking a lunch break. It was so good, and like most books that kind of like gets into your soul. Mate sucks. All the right heartstrings, and I mean new very happy. Willows. Well, the book is these, which is don't burn and I wish you and the book all the best. Thank you. And that wraps up this episode and I wanna thank Isabel sterling for joining me, again, her book, these witches don't burn is out now. I hope you enjoy that. Summertime is upon us. So if you're looking for books to devour this season, go through the archives, checkout, some of my other conversations with why writers to give you some of those ideas.

Whatever you're getting right now you have the power within you to change and create the result to be whatever you want it to be now first and foremost foremost? Let's talk about the results that you're currently getting right now Whether is in your relationships whether it's with your spouse whether it is with your health and your weight or it's a financial goal the results that you're getting right now are the direct descendant of what you're currently doing now. I'm going to share air this formula with you because it blew my mind yesterday. Results are what happens when you add commitment to focused activity so focused activity plus commitment eagles. The results that you're currently getting now for for me for example I'll share with you one of my results results. I I want an intimately passionate marriage I get to create an intimately passionate marriage now at the beginning of this year a year. I realized that this was one of the things that I wanted to change for. Twenty nine thousand nine my wife and I in the beginning of two thousand nine hundred have been married for twenty five years so I wanted to be more intimate intimate more passionate with my wife. It your twenty-five than I wasn't here one most men will say less than impossible. Always like no I get to create the marriage that they wanna have so that desire. was there the commitment. Was There beginning of twenty nine thousand nine hundred. I was full on board. My wife was totally on board. Of course she wants our marriage to be intimately passionate so they commit. What was there? I was all in one hundred percent hundred percent of the time the commitment was there and I realized that in order to get the results that I wanted order. Get the result that I desire to see. The commitment wasn't enough. I had to add focused activity now. This were got interesting because what can I do in the beginning of twenty nine thousand I ask myself what can I do to create a intimately passionate marriage orage and I got back to the drawing board and I remember when my wife and I first started being made I. We first started off intermarriage which we would date each other almost weekly basis so I went back to the drawing board and I said if I want my marriage to be more passionate intimate in in your twenty six than it was in year one. I've got to get back to what created that passionate intimacy begin with so in the beginning. Twenty nineteen I committed to dating my wife at at least once a week. Now we are almost toward the end of the year. We're in the middle of November. And I can tell you that I've only missed two dates. Hates this entire year to coffee. Dates this entire year was because I was traveling in the other ones because I was deadly deathly ill but the commitment a plus the focus activity has created a marriage stronger. Now in your twenty six than it wasn't your one and I love the results that I'm getting because the results are immediate immediate feedback telling me that not only does my wife appreciate the effort in the energy there and putting in to making our marriage intimate passionate but it's also so creating the results that I want. I want my marriage to be intimate passionate now. What I love about this formula? COMMITMENT PLUS FOCUS activity equals results is that it can be applied to everything and anything that you're doing in your life. I look at my son's seventeen hundred thirteen year old son. My desire is to the how a connected relationship with both of them are my seventeen year old is driving now. He's a senior in high school. He is applying to digital media media agency internships. He got accepted into college of his choice. My thirteen year. Old Son is is a stud. He's baseball superstar and I love them. Both what I realized is that in order to be connected to both of my sons I have to not only have the commitment. I have to have the focus activity so with my older son. I'm walking through the process of of how to apply for colleges how to write essays. How to look for internship opportunities how how to be responsible with the vehicle that he's been blessed with how to create the life that he wants to create with thirteen year? Old Son Connection means being at the baseball games connection means being the loudest cheerleader. Dad are in the stadium seats connection means being with him at every you practice in making sure that he has all the geared at he needs. And what I love about this is. I'm seeing the results. My relationship with both of my sons is risk so connected that they can come in with liberal everything. Sometimes it's too much but they can come to me with literally everything and anything knowing that I'm not gonna go crazy and because our relationship so strong they can share with me their most intimate desires and wants and needs now when we apply this to our own in life whether it is with your spouse with with your kids whether it's a financial goal you can look at the results that you're getting now and because the results never lie you can go backwards in reverse engineer the results that you're currently getting and ask yourself which of the two components is missing in my life in my committee enough to make the create the result I want and if I'm committed enough am I focusing the activity that might doing the activities that I need to do in order. It create the results that I want. This is what I love about. What asked share at the pace mastermind yesterday? Commitment plus focused activity activity creates the results. That you desire that you need that. You want to see so when you're looking at your life and you're looking at where you're currently at in life whether it's with your marriage whether your children whether it's a relationship with your friends whether it's financially whatever result you're currently experiencing right now is a direct line between your commitment and your focused activity now from personal experience. I can tell you firsthand that it's typically we never that commitment. That's the issue right. We're all committed to living better lies raw committed to playing bigger committed to having more money raw committed to creating the bigger impact to commitment typically for myself has never been the issue. I always been committed to be bigger better stronger faster than I am right now. Where her I have found myself wanting is in the focus activity now what I love about focus activities by definition? It's not just activity. See for the sake of doing something. It's focused activity. That's going to create the results that you want so when you talk about weight loss for example My wife is on this weight. Loss journey she's always been healthy but the challenge has been losing those last five to ten pounds now. Aw Putting my coaching with my wife is always a challenge right. I always have to tread lightly when it comes to my wife because I've been in business for so long there is. There's a safe zone house where I don't get to coach her but every once in a while because I love her as much as I do. I'm willing to pay the price of being shut shutdown if it will serve her in one of the things that I was able to surfer in in her weight. Loss journey was in this. Losing this last five or ten pounds uh-huh that she's been wanted to the commitment. Is there for those of you who know my wife. She's in every morning five o'clock while I am still in deep in rem sleep. She's at the gym. The commitment has always been there but the focus activity is what was missing so we looked at the different activities that she was doing whether it was through her diet whether it was through The Times of day that she ate and we realized it was the sugar intake. We realized the sugar intake was US much higher than it should be much higher than what was a necessary to create the result bishops. She wanted she wanted to sugar fast and immediately lately dropped two pounds in this sugar fast. This is the power of commitment plus focused activity to create the result. That you want now now as you look at your life ask yourself. What areas of your life are you not seeing the results that you want to see and then take a deep dive into the commitment level? Take a deep dive into the activities that you're focusing your effort energy and spending your time on and then ask ask yourself if those do think those two things combined will create the results that you're asking for right. I love for you to share in the comment section below. Hello what are some of the results that you're wanting to create in your life. What are some of the results whether it is a more passionate marriage whether it is a more connected relationship with your children children whether it is generating more revenue on a monthly monthly basis? I'd love for you to share in the comment section below. What the results are that? You're you're wanting to create in your life because there's power in declaration Lauren. wrote my commitment is to be fully self expressed. This means I'm getting more just went away. Financial Security Michelle said focus activity. Creations will absolutely way You declare whatever it is that you're wanting to create the universe. Aligns everything to help you achieve your goal whether you are a believer or not. The universe wants you to succeed. The universe wants you to reach that next level whether it's financial security whether it is a launching a business whether it is dropping that last ten pounds uh-huh wherever it is the moment you declared what the result is that you want to create. Is the moment that things start to happen. It's it's the moment the door start to open. Caroline says build my coaching Brennan. Practice Marti agrees fully self expressed. This is a powerful declaration. These are powerful declarations. Because now you're putting it out there in the ether saying I WanNa Build my coaching practice. I WANNA launch my brand. I want to be more self express. I WANNA have financial security putting these things out there now it has created a vibration in the universe. Now what we get it to do as creators of the results that we desire is to ask ourselves the question. Am I fully committed in my one hundred percent in one hundred percent at the time it it's going to take no less than one hundred percent of your effort. One hundred percent of the time to create the result that you're looking for when Martin wants to be unapologetically me absolutely MARDI financial security but helping women breakthrough via fun community adventures. Think about the things that we get to create. Think about the impact. Act that we get to make on those around us. Think about I think about every Saturday when my wife and I are sitting down for are non-negotiable coffee dates the impact. That I'm making on my wife. I think about the impact that are making on my marriage. I think about the impact that I'm making on my children and the impact on making on my friends around me. Being married is sometimes difficult and for those of you who had been married for any period time. You know it's not all UNICORNS and rainbows. It helps you get past the challenges in the obstacles as focusing on the results that you want to create now building business and launching a brand is going to be challenging lodging. It's not for the faint of heart being unapologetically. You is not going to be easy. It's not for the faint of heart but when you were focused solely on that commitment good morning Suzie Q.. Popping come on popping my business in Pace I love it when you are fully one hundred percent committed to being what you need to be in order to create the results you want to create. Nothing stops you. That is the power of commitment when you are one hundred percent committed when you have that one hundred percent intention to create the results create the future create the life that you wanna live. The intention opens up was called mechanisms. The mechanisms you're focused now with Suzie Q.. For example there are things that she knows does she must do in order to pop her business in pace. She was in in this case mastermind with US Monday and Tuesday and she knows that commitment isn't going to be enough to get her business to pop in pace. There must be focused activity. She must do all those things that we talked about from commonest ladder to doing the sales to getting everything in place. There are things that she must do in order to create the results that she she wants to see the beautiful thing about this and this is what. I'm going to leave you with this morning. The beautiful thing about creating the results that we want to see. Is that every single person. WHO's watching this? Live every single one of you every single who you who is watching this as a replay has the power within you to create the results that you want to see. There isn't a single one of you on this live. There's an single review watching this as a replay who doesn't possess the ability or the power to create the results that you want to see to create the future that you want to see or to create a life that you want to see what truly it comes down to is your ability to fully commit be one hundred percent one hundred percent of the time. Once you are fully committed the mechanisms will show up the the things that you must focus on will show up just like with my wife and that lasts five or ten pounds. That she's been struggling to shed the moment. She became one hundred percent humidity and was willing to do whatever whatever she needed to do to drop that way. She became open to me sharing with her. The sugar fast that I read about Online the moment she became open to it she applied and implemented in created immediate results. That is the power of the universe that is the power of intention. That is the power of what happens when you add commitment to focused activity every single one of us this morning has the power to create the future that you want to see. Now the flip side of that is if you aren't living in the results that you want to be seeing you have the power within you did shea jr where you're currently at right now. So what I love for you to do as we end this live is ask yourself the question. What elect area of my life and my not seeing the results that I want to see? Good Morning. Pamela what area of my life am I not seeing the results that I want to see. Take a deep dive dive. Take a moment today to reflect on that one area and ask yourself which of the two components and I do I need to shore up. Is it a commitment issue or is it a focus activity issue. It might be both for a lot of us. It's both were just not committed as much as we need to be. And because has the commitment. Is there the focus. Activity is is next to is next to nothing so when we look at our life whether it's weight loss whether it's our marriage whether relationship with children popping business like Suzie Q.. Or getting to the place were financially stable. Whatever area that is in your life we have the power to change it? Take a deep dive. Reflect on where you're currently add today. Ask yourself the question honestly truthfully answer the answer because this is something that only you have the power to create. Are you one hundred percent committed. Are you one hundred percent in all the a time to whatever the result is that you're wanting to create. Are you one hundred percent in to doing what it takes to create the result. If the answer's yes then ask yourself what what. Focus activities must accomplish in order to change the results that I'm currently seeing into the results that I desire to see once. Yes you combine those two things you will create the future of your designed you will create the life of your design you will create the results results of your design right.

"Welcome to click bottles radio where we go. Behind the scenes and uncovered the tactics and strategies. Top entrepreneurs are using to make more sales dominate their markets. And how you can get those same results. Here's your host. Dave woodward every welcome back cook fellows. Radio this is gonna be what else podcast where you can go. Oh my gosh. I need to go back and listen to that again. This is a. I have the opportunity bringing on michelle palmer michelle. Welcome to the show. Anki day thank you for having me. So michelle actually is is new to me a new introduction from shanta center those guys listening by podcast shanta. I had the opportunity saving a wonderful gift. Chande and that was michelle's matt visit energy healing matt as we're talk a little bit about this because people always ask me dick so tell me about what all the biohacking things that you do. What are the things that is russell always trading back for different ideas for biohacking and obviously is an entrepreneur. One of the things that matter most is your health. And as you're trying. I see so many people sacrifice their help as trying to go after the wealth but for me. I was so impressed by the matt that i wanted to actually meet the entrepreneur who actually created so. I reached out to shannon said china. Can you connect me answer. Michelle is the founder and creator of his energy. Healing company ends energy. You can add at ge energy z. E. r. g. y. healing. You could see some stuff there and then Our website is energy. Healing co dot com. But what kind of dive into here are two different parts of this conversation. The first one is kind of why why this whole biohacking and health matters so much as a business owner entrepreneur but then also from her perspective. What are the things she's doing to scale in the grocery business which i know matters to others who are listening so with that being said michelle can't tell people what in the world is energy healing. 'cause i let me i'm going to discredit first from my perspective and you can give all the all the good stuff behind it so i get this map and i get this box and it's heavy. I'm like oh my gosh. What in the world in this thing. And so i i on full this man. It's a full body match and you plug this in in the best way for me to describe it is. It's like the most relaxing healing. Rejuvenating matt that you get i. My wife and i basically fight over. Who's gonna lay on before we go to sleep at night and we'd have to start ticking joins here but part that i'm most excited about is just after a long day the rejuvenation and the ability to get a for me. At least i'm i'm tracking sleep all the time aware or ring you've always asking. Are you tracking things so those religious track things through an oral ring. I'm not a big apple. Watch person so sleep readiness off fitness steps on that guy step. Those are the main things. I'm measuring so just as much as i measure things on the metrics spars running the company. I also measure a ton things with my health. And i think it's important no matter who you are in your business as well as in your health you're gonna find when you measure those things that are going to improve the most so i'm always measuring quality. Sleep the length asleep. What am i eating. How am i tech things and put it into my body. How do i actually really improved my ability to focus while at at work and as much done as possible and for me one of the things. I'm loving right now as my toy. Is this whole synergy matt. So that's my advertisements zenati michelle. Why don't you tell people what really is interesting. It's got it. I'll let you explain. Yes it's testimonials and people just getting the response of blazel rejuvenation as my why behind it. It's got five healing therapies. so the first For most is the far infrared heat. And what that does penetrating deep into your tissues on a a deep cellular level like two to three inches. And it sort of far infrared. He sort of like a hug from the sun and so with that you're stimulating the circuit Circulate issue and as we're doing that aren't read heat. Also assist the body and emitting nitric oxide and that's what allows the blood vessels to dilate so that's increasing the circulation to our bodies in facilitating that relaxation response if the muscles and infiltrating recovery and in addition to that we have on the jemson shockers and by on hot stone so i ask this The matt is energy matters heating. It is These stones superconductors. So we've got the different elements of each shock. Rile which a shocker. As energy center in the body and They're seven Kind of common ones that we talk about there's many more and the stones aligned with the trucker as and And as well as the by hot stone and by an hot stone emits an ultrasound station so as is it's superconductors. So we're emitting this far infrared heat along with the stones deepen our tissues. And that's what we're getting. That deep cellular response of relaxation vitality in those key they negative ions and negative ions are amazing. Because we're always being bombarded by radicals like the computer that we're on right now right. And so those native ion sort of neutralize. The free radicals are the positive ions and that were bombarded with and you get a overall sense of well being so there's different things there is found in nature. That's why we feel so good when we go and nature like we go to the ocean waterfalls it's emitting negative ion so it's the overall sense of well being and then we also have the red. Photon light therapy. M in the matt as well. So it's sort of like supercharged asset like you. Say the tesla of therapeutic mats and getting five healing therapies in one mad when when main yeah healing treatment in thirty to forty minutes like you've experienced it's just really profoundly relaxing and and just Recovering your body in a on a cellular level that facilitates all the benefits. We know it helps with sleep. It helps with pain. it helps with a muslim recovered. You're an athlete A lot of our clients with back pain auto immune issues diabetes circulation anything circular sucre tori like portfolio vascular disease. All those clients really benefit from the healing benefits and bio hackers. So i have a master's in exercise physiology that i got years and years ago and i've never ever used so i understand a lot of the terminology but i don't i the scientific. I don't techno babble. i don't spend a bunch of time on these days. All i know is that it's amazing and feels great An infrared sauna. My house that i use in the morning and Different lights and things. I could if you've watched any of my instagram watching russell. Van de far as this biohacking is really as an entrepreneur. You're health is probably one of the most important things that again. I can tell you speaking from personal experience. I didn't really care that much about it was more about just making money on. It was just like focus. Focus focus and i've seen now that Again everything from from drinking a gallon of water every single day and and making sure that i'm folks more on the fuel that amusing to feel my body are the things that i spend a bunch of time on. I know for a people. It's interesting as i as. I had the to spend time talking about this when you look at at growing business like this. There's a lot of entrepreneurs and business owners you get started and there's a passionate highness and i know michelle just even looking at you right now. How passionate you are about these mats and help me understand. How do you take that passion and actually make it a business react. You're making money. Well my passion behind it is. My background has physical therapist. So i sort of took that knowledge and more importantly ten years into my career. I became a patient and so during that time I was looking at the panicked. Of like what am i going to do by can't return to my occupation. I had a neck injury that was so severe at you. Bulging disks and if like someone the rating pain was going to my elbow felt like someone was stabbing my elbow with a pig apps and i was on the road to surgery and And so that's when. I sorta certified as yourself like looking at alternatives to western medicine that i was department of. I became the patient on mike. Is this how my patients spill. Because i was so you you kind of go through a cookie cutter of first the medications and then you know the injections and then the mri and then the surgeon and and when it came to that nothing was working and surgery is going to be. My option is when i. I said this this i. That's not an option for me. I didn't want to be at franck back. Patient started looking energy work and No alternatives a lot of traction and foreign thread heat was one of the modalities and i just felt like all of all of our healthcare professionals are amazing in that. Visit me last thirty to sixty minutes. But what our clients doing the other twenty three hours a day at home and so that sort of what was a big difference for me in what maintains my house. I was able to avoid surgery by time. I to the surgeon and told them i was pain-free he didn't want to hear my new stuff is always like to end. You want it now and he. You don't need surgery you don't have paying though he didn't care so That's sort of my passion became and transit translating that into being an entrepreneur Yeah it's a lot of work but it's exciting. Because i really just want to make people feel better. I really wanna make an impact in a larger impact For for my patients that were my patients In into really bring this more mainstream that so many more people know about it like yourself. I afar infrared sauna. And i tend to use my matt a lot more for the convenience and a lot of people don't have access or room for an infrared sauna. The i use my matt more frequently so bringing that in an transition not to a business model Yeah it's been a lot of new exciting things to learn as entrepreneur. The holy world i think. Marketing is the biggest. You know i did the design and the you know with the engineering and manufacturing and all that seems like simple when you compare that to marketing And what what there is to learn about that. So i would say Your keeping it simple. I like working with chande. Having a coach like somebody like Herself to is amazing with heart for business. And having a coaches to kinda guy you along the way in how to create that audience. And and how do you know generate leads. I think that's that's the most important thing is you can have the product. But if you don't have the customers are selling jail so lead generation obviously a business click funnels. I think it's probably like a really great time to be an entrepreneur because there's so many amazing i think what the is narrowing it down. Which one do you pick which system. Because there's so many amazing things out there to assist entrepreneurs with sales like look funneled so I think that The you guys if Sort of high neared the process of simplification and for people like myself Yeah to make it a lot easier. So i think that's i think that's the biggest thing is is mark you than learning the marketing. I appreciate that. I know that for a lot of people. It's i think the exciting thing is you find a passionate really involved in trying to get that message out to the world. And i think there's a lot of frustration that comes in and how to actually do that. Obviously it's been a budget time on people with regard to click and everything for one final challenge lee challenge and a whole bunch of other tools and resources. I'm kind of curious How do you deal with with the entrepreneur frustrations when things. Don't go the way you want them to. I lay on my energy at two hours instead of thirty two hours on it. I appreciate that because people to have one. That's right so everyone that's listening. It is energy. Matt i yeah i really think is yes i think. Having a ability buddy I really like about working with shanta. right now. is like we're in pau odds. And so you're working with a group and i think just getting that feedback in that sport and And with the different trainings. I've newsday mindset is really key. I think that's what i've really grown in Especially since going through shadows leadership a training is the mindset. And that we all it's easy to get sidetracked in new york to preneurs they. Everyone says oh the shiny object syndrome. Like i should do that. And then you're going this direction. But now i need to do this to your constantly feeling old and it's too many directions so i understand the frustration. And i'm for me right now Building a team. You know of getting people to be able to support me on the things. That aren't my expertise like social media Isn't something that. I really on friday this but now i need to be as an entrepreneur so learning learning those things and then another thing i said i said i'm going to start new company and it's going to be called hire a teenager and attack you know isn't isn't my thing You know health care You know provider and and so yeah getting those people that are experts on things that you're not an expert on you be you and you know what you're what your superpower and then hire you know. Find the right people to support the unit other areas. Because it's a lot to do. Yeah no i appreciate that. I think the Dr house a book called not how. I think too often as an entrepreneur as you made mention so we get so focused on trying to do it all ourselves in the reality is it can find the right team and higher team out to actually do that it does. It's not one of those things that needs to cost a whole bunch of money as much as it is on someone we can bring in a goes back to the idea about leadership. I can really be super clear on my mission. And what i'm trying to accomplish. I will find the right. Who's that can help me accomplish. And they'll build and still not that passionate that business behind it. So i appreciate the importance that also obviously this idea of accountability. I'm curious How how large the pots about five or six people. Perfect so i can tell you for one of the things we've seen is anywhere in that five to seven eight is kind of ideal when it looks to accountability and what i typically also find is you can find these accountability Obviously on facebook groups or things like that huge believer in coaching programs. Obviously we ever to coaching program as well. I think that the real key though is you gotta find people who will accountable and you have to hold them accountable as well. I was joking around with the russell. The other day The store basically came up where years ago he. He was a mastermind and one of the guys they said. You don't all hold you accountable if you'll hold me. Accountable says fantastic. Sounds like a great idea and the guy said art. What i need to do is any direct. The ten thousand dollar check also like why would i ranked one thousand or check us. We're not gonna cash unless you actually don't follow through and do what you need and the alright you at ten thousand dollar check and will use as as biscuit hold each other accountable and you said that move got skin game. that's fascinating. I ended up telling my boys about it and They both want me to write ten thousand checks them so i would start working out on a more regular basis but So funny i love it. I think the key is you've gotta have skin in the game and whoever you're going to work with accountability. I think some of the best skin is. I've seen it work the other way. Where person says well. I won't cash the check. But i'm gonna give it to whatever 'cause you're completely against and so you have to find whatever the stick is gonna motivate you Against donald carrot and stick so sometimes the carrots not as attractive as the stick is set for benefit of medicine. So whichever way you decided to go from accountability standpoint as you're listening to this please please reach out and make sure you have an accountability partner. I think it's by far one of the most important parts results. We kind of get close to wrapping things up your any partying words for our audience things you encourage them to do besides going get his energy map. Absolutely get a center at well. I actually love what you open with was just like you know in a sense health as well and so i think with entrepreneurs what we In i'm guilty as well is We're so busy and focused on what we're doing and have so many things to do in that list is. I've been coached on like keep you know the main people one thing one thing at a time and but also just not forgetting like you said like the the workouts and the food intake and and all that is just self care self care and self nurturing. So that's why. I designed as energy as well as its for busy entrepreneurs. I feel like it saves. it's saving you time like it's it's so it's like an investment that will pay you back You know tenfold. 'cause you don't have to. You're not going to get that massage. You can actually feel like you've got a massage every night at home You know versus the time that you go out and get and get treatment so just not forgetting that self care and sleep are so important. And i know it's a big A lot of customers use it prior to sleep because it really makes a difference for them. So that's i think a big thing is is not forgetting self care. Insert self nurturing appreciate. That'll take we don't have our health. We don't have anything right especially we know that right. What we're going through during these times are interesting so you want to find out more. You can check out at is energy healing on instagram or is energy healing code dot com michelle.

It was like no. It's like y'all. I can't do this. It's not going to work so the fact that i have. I hope he's in whole a hole in the half. I'm sorry i'm a fool in the half as won't let you know this sean. As a fool in a half. Johnny is three in one fourths of a full read. That wrong she said. I thought it said whole foods. I was ready to talk about food for this whole thing. It's bullshit i quit. 'cause you do. I've never been to whole foods. No black person's been a whole foods. The whole place is built up against us. We can't even get through the door to trader joe's sprouts. Y'all that's my speed traderjoes far. And that's where hippies but when you walk in a whole foods immediately think you're shoplifting.

Oh yeah that's right sean. Takes thank you for correcting me. So sean tae and her co hosts thank you. Thank you know this is way too but how we do it right talk show by having little.

Oh lord we re nine in nursing school. She is doing her fucking thing. Don't don't ask me about my wife. You know i get wet. You may have either of you heard this term like i saw someone say it's about this guy that she was like i am why am i sup- for him and she said why am i. Sup- over him. And i'm like what do you mean yourself over auto liquid. There's nothing solid. See what that doesn't mean. I didn't know so i thought she like. Autocorrect is for some reason. My autocorrect always corrects food. Too good on my. I know what the fuck i'm saying. It's like what so. I thought it was autocorrect. And i was like. Why are you so over him. She's like no no no. It means as means literally what you said. I was like oh wait. I'm cuckoo way so over him so think about tomato soup. There's nothing solid liquid completely melted over him. Yeah i have no idea. I like run. That made sense to me immediately. Right okay see i. I guess. I didn't think of in that term because i thought that was like an old age state like like what is the. I'm not souped or whatever. Just an average man really have to try to point of view won't see saudi almost died really wouldn't being prepared for this i- y'all y'all missing some goodness because my god that was funny i was like why is he about the fall off his. I'm not souped You no seriously when you think about it. The the term soup When you when you make a soup even if you put some forms of solid into a whether it's chicken or or vegetables or whatever it may be the primary thing in a soup is liquid. Yeah so panty. Soup and god. Oh we're like. I really thought it was all the correct over family. Conversation to has even started over already. But she said i'm sup- o'brien and it was like oh same same to put that in ratchaburi club that is like i'm like i'd never heard of this and i'm like oh lonesome nipples guy hard that shit. You haven't even seen brian. So that is immaculate. This is how it goes. This is supposed to be a real show we are. We are like professional content creators. but we're also meets tanai are one and a half of. I think we're moving up to at least two and one third but again johnny. Three one force of this. I've known you since four and a quarter. I'm just comfortable here okay. I am in an element though. I just want to let you know where you are. You're the show title. I am otis. I am. I'm not even i'm not even fronton are qualms if i died tomorrow. I would note that the show was in great hands. And i keep everytime we do show on single simulcasts. I ask shanta why she won't do certain things on the podcast and that's not me trying to force her to do things on a podcast. That's me giving her ideas. From when i thought and retire like sante yours. Now what you going to do with it. I talked about tarot cards. When i told you about. When i talk about this bomb. They got us out. She's like okay so right so much but let's get started so we're going to start with giving them give them their roses so this has been always a fun part. I love giving people that roses meaning people that are still ear and i gotta give them roses because my god sometimes. It's like the work that y'all do baby good to hell luck everybody. So the first set of rules. I wanna give is to rashawn and sean because one. They won their here. And to as i always can just talk to them and i tell we're this and he'll be like oh what you talking about. I don't know what to say it but in year one. I was literally thinking about stopping and i was like i don't know and then we're like i like your show. You're doing a good job and it was at a moment where i was just like. This shit is not working. And i don't even know why i'm doing it so i tell everybody is like if it wasn't for a johnny. I wouldn't still be doing this. And i know. Teresa is listening. She's probably going to send me a voice note and she's gonna say stephanie. What do you mean you were going to stop. Learning how i said it. I'm just saying you're one. Your one is hard. But you can't blame me for this. You are like gear. Podcasting style has always been oil. Fire once you got hot there was no putting you out and hit your stride. I knew you were going to be great. Like there's no other way around it. You fuck like no. Don't thank you. I mean i guess thank you but no you would have done this if no one else has been there around you. And the thing is for everybody out. There who aspiring to start a podcast. Yes the first years hard. It's lonely you know anybody's you wonder if you're an echo chamber wonder if You're actually reaching the people you wanna reach. But then at some it just clicks you realized you know what i have to have my own voice. People find a friend and steph found out pretty early. You're just fine. There wasn't shit. I had to say to you like you had the drive and you had the desire to do this. What the fuck marg on do negotiate sucks die. Like if i would've done i would have done. This told me to go fuck myself and kept moving and just cut me out. Which is what you should have done. I'm still see this is what see. Also y'all were sean kane take no compliments so that's why he's doing this. I'm still going to give him the compliment. Because i get what you're saying but it's like i'm someone who's psyched myself out for like six most were even starting and then i started with a co host. And this wasn't what she wanted to do. And it's unfair. Also y'all are asking y'all not asking for our podcasting advice. But i will tell you if you decide to go into a podcast with other people. Please make sure that's what they want to do. Because sometimes you yes. Why don't wanna do this. No more sean. Let me free you. I makes me. I will be taste. Don't do that. I wanna moving nisha on. What the moving you nigga on what. It is such a beautiful thing when you have a co host. Who actually wants to walk with you on this path in fat. But it's also beautiful because a lot of people don't know how hard and get how rewarding it is to do a solo podcasts. There the certain cutie and being able to know that everything that you said was your words. There was nothing that was Augmented or altered by somebody else's thoughts like you'll hear a show of ours. Now we're all star one opinion in the morning and by the afternoon. Shanty has talked to me. And i'm like you know what. I don't believe in acid memorial. Don't work like when you're doing a show. By yourself that is you unfiltered and all unadulterated Just brilliance and so for you to do that in and out for this long shit. I wish you would've tried to quit right now. Twenty five dollars a friend. I can find my way that much. I can come out there you go you. Just wait snyder maryland. It's fine no twenty five bucks. I would have flown out there and the fuck you doing trying to quit. Who told you to quit mike. Yo you can't you're doing. It is southwest. Is crazy right now. But you're doing your home spirit. Why are you quoting spirit. Prices on south west south was like how fucking dare you. We are forty five dollars. Maybe today thank you bitch. You better fly out on tuesday or wednesday thursday friday bitch. Look we busy in booked but honestly our inspiration inspirational mini folks. Who came before you an after you. So you're not allowed to quit dante. Same thing for you mean myself fuck you like maybe a year left. I'm insane after four years now. So now he probably got another podcast. It's coming into fall. Y'all just be ready right right. I'm just let me don't be together. it's going to be a new podcast is coming. Let me tell you. I'm jeremy says i got all the pocket someone do. I look like michelle. Maybe i mean i put my crocheting braves back so now you can't you can tell us apart is like there is stuff that i actually do want to do. So it's like it's scary when i think about it. Yeah just try it like if it works. If it doesn't work then you gotta start. You got a single episode. There was a podcast. I don't know if they made it. But i'll be non-interest still around but there i did with literally we come up with new podcast ideas for every episode and it's called the single serving show if the if i made that up not to do that for every episode trying something new and they never tried it again. Why does this sound like something. You would actually do right this dope. I'm pretty proud of us. So that's a cool idea. And if they haven't done it that it's a cool idea to go ahead if you because especially because you don't have to you can get all the good stuff of that one thing and not be burdened with trying to make that same being really go week out or whatever so one week. He'd do a movie review the next week. You do a video game review the week out talk with the next anthrax. Join a solo. So you're talking like there's so much stuff you can do. A solo show for or a not a solo show but a single serving show. So can i tell you what my ideas. I'll put it out here because it's still 'cause i wanna do movie reviews but i already thought about the name a super weird that. I'm doing this mostly. Because i enjoyed godzilla vs king kong. I enjoyed mortal combat. And i was like. I kinda wanna review stuff on. Hbo max call. It mocha to the max right. I liked the name. I'm like what saddam you nothing. Then why are we doing it. What's what's what's happening here spacing opportunity. I mean that's pretty much. What wait wait. You got eight. Max right and do you think the movies nigga. Here's how it works still osho finish. The movie turns the right. Get on your computer. Bang out a review fifteen minutes. Put it on their nick. I'm so sincere. Because that's the that's the timeframe that people are looking for for a podcast specially for a review. Fifteen minutes real quick. Here's here's what. I didn't like boom five lewistown. Whatever it may be boom boom bill putting fast lewis. Yeah yeah so yeah. this is off. Mike league is coming y'all hbo. Max has been cranking out some shit and now at all the one or brothers movies are literally going to be premiering on hbo. Max it's just not ready to review. Craig creek because i'm down for that series watson often. Yeah oh look. I'm a steve universe girl. So you know that the creek is like yeah. You should be able to do this. And it's like okay. We'll beat on it. I'm into it yet. Let's do it. Because i'm like something i wanna do. And also patriotic. Yes this is stephanie. We're giving flowers so also the oscars were this weekend so that literally signals the end of award season. Meaning that somebody here not here in this one but somebody who literally has been going to all of this stuff because we lost her husband last year she can now just literally just go and spend time and greed without having to be in front of people and that is simone lead word who is chaptered widow. Wanna give her flowers. Because i'm like. I know this has to be a lot like this has to be lot is like she was with him the whole time. He was going through colon cancer. She lost him last year. She had to memorial and then and in that he's a spectacular actor so of course she had to be around for award season. I feel like there should have been. I haven't seen. I have not seen his last two albums albums movies. that's netflix. i just. I can't do it yet. Because i cried when he died. So i'm like i'm not ready. So the fact that she can get glam and just. I don't know if she has canned thoughts about what she's going to do or how she feels what she does for the speeches. She has all of my sympathy and empathy and she gets all the flowers and roses. That i can give her can only imagine what you have to be on for everybody because we lost chadwick. Boseman like show see definitely gets roses from me. Yeah so. I don't even know. I don't know if i could function that way. I just really camera. Y'all i can't do this. I'm like no is just hard but to see the love that she gets. It's like i don't know if that will make it easier for me. Maybe it does for her. I'm not sure but yeah so now. That award season is over. We'll we'll i'll give you guys. The quick hits the oscars no. I don't watch this shit anymore. But we'll talk about that. But i wanted to give Simone her roses. It's it's really scary right now To be i feel horrible for her. And for you know. Jim x.'s Significant others to lose somebody at the at the height of just their time right when they have so much more to give and the way the my mind is set up. Is i literally get scared. Every time i love or somebody. I admired in the in the world of television or movies. Or whatever dies. I get a i think about my own mortality And chadwick was heartbreaking and like literally devastating in the find out that he knew about it for so long and his wife walkway him. That hold time. Gosh like you hear about all these white. Dudes were politicians like our member. Who was whether mitch mcconnell. Who was whose wife was sick and he literally left her in the bed. Was it wasn. Dick is wondering why boys who his wife was sick with cancer and he left her in the war and went and got with another woman while he was still married to his wife. I mccain or was it was it was it or was a new gingrich. I'm no. I'm just couldn't i mean there's so many there's so many people where unfortunately when women do get sick that they get hung out to dry by their husbands. When did not go like that so it could be any number of fishing for people that do this shit right for really. Yeah i'm just sitting here like it's one in the bad part about his is one of them one of them. Somebody somebody did it but do either one of you have roses that you wanna give out I don't fucking flowers kidding sean. Sanyal I i do honestly hold on one second you you right there you the pretty lady hold on one second. I'm gonna give flowers to my wife. And i want her to be here to hear it because she don't listen to podcasts. Yeah come on baby. Boomer company ladder literally. You were literally one of the bravest smartest most driven people. I've ever met in my entire life and the fact that you are knocking out every aspect of nursing school while still having time. It's been with children while still help me out with the consistently. Good is incredible. I couldn't believe that you wanted to leave the state to become a nurse. But i knew that it was your dream and i am just amazed at how well you are transitioning to make this dream come true making it look so fucking easy when other people have fallen by the wayside every god day. You aren't allowed to quit. Because i've seen just how great you do this. But you don't wanna quit. Nestles bright about sure inspirational to every person that you meet and it is absolutely beautiful to see you at baby making this so much better. I love this. He's like hey you must have welcome. Yeah you okay kid got through your healing from your from your surgery extremely well in with the mindset. Help like i guess. That's good talking about our. What no that was on unburdened where also talking about. How devon has grown up in a household where there is no boundary. As far as if you do this you're gonna lose my support in my love. He's run up some more love his entire life. And you see a flourishing in him in a thirteen year old and it's just awesome to see like it's inspiring but the flowers more for him today to refer nisha. Hey so Okay so let's go low key. Because i mentioned the oscar so let's go low key with the oscars so they happen. Okay see. i need to stop doing that. I'm just like they happened in my blah but I just want to know. When are we getting together to have a party for regina king stylus because my god. She ain't been missing all year last year. I'm sorry. I'll know who regina stylists are because god damn they'd like she turns it out and she always been turning out and i just want her to Be celebrated. She is a woman of certain she she in our age bracket and i just want her. I'd just wished for her to get a man who worships the ground. Does she walks on and gives her the best dick every night. That's all want fourteen game. I'm like i just want a nice thing. Or if she don't want that she don't need that and she just enjoyed the fuck out of our life because my gosh she is incredible That has nothing to do with oscars of the fashion. I don't one of these days. I'll get back to doing fashion rewind. 'cause i do enjoy doing them as just well. So you know the podcast idea. Fifteen minutes all you need so yeah my way. I just wanted to go like. you're right. So the ceremony happened. Yesterday it was the upsets definitely. Were the fact that viola davis and chadwick. Boseman did not win. That was like damn. It went to anthony hopkins and even he was just like he didn't think he was going to win. And so he pays respect to chadwick boseman. I think he also put a video on his instagram and dedication to chadwick boseman. So i think everybody thought this was chadwick's award to lose a seems in that to win because i think everybody thought was going to win and the fact that he did didn't is very okay. All right i am not surprised More people i was shot in black win in the outskirts. Honestly yeah like look. It ain't been that long since blindfolds been getting their what they deserve the oscars. I am not surprised when black folks don't win. I was yeah. We were all there to make the means in the jokes when Moonlight in la la land had that incident. Yeah led did you think you'll going to happen twice making that mistake twice so when they can just like joost chadwick mistake. What going to snyder. Cut the fucking oscars. Is that what you do now like the remote. Yeah cyber. I still have not watched that static. I honestly refuse. It's four hours. what the that's what. The movie is is four hours right. Four hours i can't do it. Mind you. I'm somebody who went to see voted rings in the theater and it's like but that's only but also events but again. Yeah good movies like seriously when somebody asked you if somebody came up to me and said yo derek. What's the snyder cut about. Four is a four hours about four hours. That's what it is. Let me tell you something after. Like one woman eighty four and my two hours. That i really am by the file a lawsuit about what my time you know. I'm going to list stuff. That i could have been fucking doing for two and a half hours at the top of this fucking sleeping the gatt damn list and i'm like no i could do after that was like. Let me tell you something if i if it doesn't sizzle my spirit to watch this movie. I am not doing it. So yeah no fuck. That's not a cut. I don't give a damn. That movie is awful. Did it's like an extra two hours of awful. I would rather stick a hot poker in my i. I mean the the good thing about it is it. Did give a cyborg more time. The bad thing about it is given cyborg more time. It also gave his dad more time in his dad is played by papa pope from a man daniel but they didn't let him papa pope out with master monologue didn't get a monologue exactly exactly. That was my biggest beef. go give this negative stage. And don't let him nick out. Well the panel. We're getting a flash movie. So harare his way out. So i know papa. Pope won't being so yeah. Nfl we're getting man too. It's like like blue definitely soup over. Okay get out of here. So the actor. Category like anthony hopkins. One is like seriously as it sir. Anthony hopkins to a certain extent. Get it but also there were also other people of color of amount of color- stephen is when or yoon you. You think he was nominated for minority rizza. Med was Nominated for sound of metal. So i was very impressed. Gary oldman will always be dracula to me is like he came out. He can't person i'm like. Oh look dracula as commissioner gordon. I'm sorry it's either that or what is the gatt from the professional dance. He is stance. He's gonna be dracula to me. 'cause guide bram stoker's dracula is one of the best list. Were hindsight walker wiig. For what gun dammit. The best national oliver. Oh well okay. I'll have to actually sit in like really sit down watch it the whole it's so bad that whole storyline between leon and the little immaterial out. I'm here like like. I'm making a face like your little girl literally told them. He's my lover. And that's when my soul departed my body. That was when i was who who are making that jay z face. Ooh yeah if your grow okay. So here's the other category. That was super weird to me. So kaluga won best supporting actor so leslie junior which please wear gold tux everywhere you need to go. It's my god. It looked good and also l'equipe stanfield was also in in disappointing for this same movie. I'm like so a- daniel and lucky for both supporting who's lead actor in that movie. The do the word. Fuck the window this as a rule. What i'm because. I'm like my you and they didn't have a big role so that's why i was sitting here like wait. A minute lead actor but notice. They don't have no lead actor for the black messiah anyway. Let me yet. it bothered me. I feel like day could have been lead actor but that's a legend that's that's the restlessness nope about the is at least for at least for like when i was younger. I love to watch you know. I love movie off so love movies. But i mean like i love that part of it and you know favorite actor wayne or whatever but the older i get the more i realized that it's you know that it's so wack subjective will wack yes but also like super-duper like really really really subject about like thinking about like when like once. I realized that anthony hopkins was nominated. It was just like oh. This is an easy choice for a lot of people hopkins as even got ended. Ain't gotta be about whether or not this movie was good or anything. It's just like you know what. I could take risks. Nobody's gonna say anything about gaming. Anthony hopkins fucking anthony hopkins. It's been a long time. since he's won an oscar. Why not go ahead and give him the author is it is just and that that kind of why not give it to him vibe or give it whoever. Yeah go with any of these time with whenever any of these people went. It's like when denzel one for training day. Dental could've won for a whole machine in toronto. He won but he was like they finally had to give. It was like it was finally his turn. And it's so it's shit like that. I can kind of come around with people that it's not even really about the the work that you did in that year. It's just like well we gotta give it to. Somebody might as well give it to him. You know whoever you know so it's hard to to watch and enjoy when that's kind of you know behind it now. You can start now you know. Fourth of ribs of med had one steven yeun had one way. You know if you know chadwick one and still would've been dope for them like on a personal level but just as a spectator is not dislike. I don't care right. 'cause they might as even if it didn't go to anthony hopkins. If it went to steven steven yeun. I feel like it would have been a big deal. Because i feel like the last asian man who won best actor was your brenner. If i'm not mistaken. And i'm like jano along those like i would have been like okay. What the fuck is chadwick boseman. But still i feel like there's a lot that we can go back because i'm with you. I'm sorry malcolm x. Was the oscar that he really should have one. Because i'm like my god. He was so good as malcolm x. I like train day. But it's also the. I've seen him play a cop so i get it but it's also this don't seem like denzel part but it's like sometimes when i look at trying day i'm like is this oscar-worthy may the but i don't. I don't know i'm just sitting here. Like i don't know so. They one sole one best enemy to feature and original score. I was like oh shit now and miss her. She has an oscar because she won for best original song for judaism. The black it was like. Oh my gosh trayvon free. He wrote and directed a short film. He won for his film. And mia neil jamaica wilson and sergio lopez rivera made his rifle winning for best makeup and hairstyling. Tools people are vile davis's personal makeup and hair stylists makeup artists in here solid. Say so. yeah there's a there was history that was made. There were snubs that we saw. But it's like. I didn't even think i didn't even realize that. Wow there's never been a black person to one makeup and hairstyling. You're sitting here thinking now as good as black people are hair makeup on this is weird to me but also I'm not surprised at all. So y'all it had wait so the personal one in hair. Styling was regina kings makeup by day. So for costume design. Did the woman from coming to america win. I mean look. I think she did hold on. Let me call it out. She'd it was. Her work was gorgeous like it and so no. It wasn't her but because she wasn't maybe checks who wasn't nominated she was okay. Might make of. It was actually an roth from my rainey's black bottom. She's the one who went for costume. Okay i'll tell you that. Maybe maybe coming to america's going to be next year may maybe because i think it came out. What in january something like that. Yeah so maybe it might. It might be next year. I'm also noticing that the folks Diag color from moulin was also named for costume design sidebar. I really enjoyed the live action on me to really liked it. I was like this. Actually come up with this. I don't miss the song. Because i actually kinda just like this better that i find that it is always better to just watch it. Here's take do and then just go quietly about your business like don't worry about what other people are saying. Yeah 'cause i'm waiting for raya to me too. Yeah because i wanna see it. 'cause i'm like really good so Disney hasn't had a lot of mrs. And i know we all have our different beefs with the live actions if i had to rate them i feel like the poor babies and but i will split the jungle book at the top because i was very impressed by that was note and i didn't like the animated juggle book i was like i'm fucking scared and also sheer concerts. That fucking bejesus out of me shooting. This is the greatest classic disney villain plastic villain. Classic villain knows another good disney villain. Because the movie like fucking sucks. That everybody doesn't miss it. Gaston now i did that. Double kill because that's also saying the beauty and the beast sucks talking about the animated folks of so. I have a feeling they are never going to make this a lot of action because the animated movie was so pan. And it wasn't that great. But the hunchback of notre dame. Yeah oh the villain from them. Movie is literally one of the best. And i'm like god damn so if there's no as judge frolo that is developed. He's one of the best villains ever but because he's in a very sucky ass movie that's why we don't care yet to to quote the green lantern in teen titans go. We don't we. Don't talk about that. There was a hunchback notre dame movie about this opening but that will be sucks. It's horrible but the beginning some of the like the it's beautiful right at the movie is about. I mean let's be real talking. Mike how to fuck to begin here talking gargoyles and a fringe zone man and then the g word there were no longer were saying because it's offensive. Y'all exactly so we can't do this movie so we're never going to get it but also we're not gonna get a pocahontas movie. No one's asking for that because no because no because no So let's move on to a new story in next door you low key so a man went to high school went to college. Got drafted gun to nfl. His last name was johnson but because of his jersey number. He changed his last name to his georgian number. He changes to ocho cinco. Which is eight five. But not eighty-five. And i you will say here. Go like wow. That's not smart but you know this weekend. He decided to be the self drag that he has been for quite some time. So that was the jokes about like. That's not eighty five. That's eight and five but Channel joe cingo divulge that he graduated with a two point two. Gpa and he thinks that's a flex. And i feel like well. I mean he is the man who changed his name to single not eighty five. So there's that so he decided. Mind you screen. Shot of him texting with his child. he'd say parenting one one kids don't understand the sacrifices it takes so i guess this is his daughter. Daddy yes ma'am let me know when you go to token miami to get some shoes. Because i'm come with you because i want to get these keys. That they have first of all love yourself more fucked by c. c. number. So what anyway. He said you said you were getting a job. I worked at mcdonalds by edison to attain actress stuff. I wanted in high school when i finish school. I'm getting one when i finish school. I'm getting one how. I'm get a job and i have school in track practice to attend throughout the day him. This is what he thought was the mic drop. I caught the bus to school then. Went to football. Practice called the bus to mcdonald's for a six hour shift all while maintaining a two point two. Gpa and being a star athlete. God that's probably one. That's probably why you had a two point two gpa. To who knows if you really had if you really earn two point two gpa. 'cause it sounds like they were just like let's keep him eligible so he can keep playing back toward what yeah like like. Let's just keep him eligible so he can keep playing football. Like that is part like waited miss. What was really going on for you. As far as being like if he was really as bad assets. Football player. As i'm sure you were they were pulling strings for you because cool strings for all kinds of different people and we all probably know somebody who prot who. If they didn't play football well they probably wouldn't have graduated. Let's be real like yeah with chad coach. Come on in come on go. Whoa whoa chad. I just i just. He's never portrayed himself as being anybody who's the smartest nagin the bunch and he came from web boca raton florida. Somewhere around there Everything so santa is absolutely right. I'm sure that they pushed him through. Because negatives outweighed there weren't really looking at education as their way out of where they were living like. If you can catch a football at a young age that point in time you were god status narrow just like do what you have to do it so south you know football in the south a whole different breed so he didn't have to worry about it. I'm like a no. It wasn't a two point to You know how they have the rule of four and they have all these other roles. We got the rule of eight five. We got the role of ocho cinco. Whatever great when she goes you take that first number and take to off their mother app that point to you got a point to point to smart you realize that's not beyond the other reason why he got a point too because he could point to his steps and be like me yet. There's no there's no that's a deed deed. There's no reason for anybody to be touting that they had a d. average to tell somebody that this is what they need to aspire to as far as like his you know what he did in school like a d like. There's no just shows that he's not like the the brothers not smart that's really what. Oh he has an update tonight. Oh here's an update Apparently him and his. I think he's trying to say this is his daughter but because we don't see the top being but but apparently he said his daughter said why are they going in on us in the comments like maybe they may not do okay but then he said they don't know i'm trolling. That's what makes it funny. I love this. Shit is so funny and entertaining. They by that. I mean they could be going in on her. They could be going on as i want a. They went in on me. And it's like no no. This is why i'm like. This is very interesting. Someone responded to him. The whole point of becoming successful is so your soul. You kids not your your. You don't have to go through what you did. Struggling is a necessary to make you a good person. You re tweeted this and said look in the mirror. How you giving advice on parenting when your parents failed. You don't understand but this is a negative head but his wife. So i mean i don't. I'm not surprised so we can't be. I'm trolling but then you're like you ugly bitch it's like here's the thing about about chad. College okay i know i know. I know. A lot of y'all colleges the nba. That's fine but there's a lot of other ways to get to where you need to get to rather than other than going to college. I just want to point that out. College is important but it's not important to everybody into me. I had a horrible experience so college that could said college but he didn't get the nfl. Chad could have kept it. A hundred and be like you know what i did what i need to do to make it to the league. How many said. I bet you can still this post. I got a two point. I got a point too and i made it to the nfl. And i'm a hall of famer. I bet you can't still this post. We just did a show on hindsight about the program which is about a college football team. Okay one of the folks that were on their people that they portrayed in. This movie was dude named alvin. Mack alvin mack was a outside linebacker. Who was destined to go to the pros. Like he was the end all and be all for defense for school though when he's getting tutored fourth grade reading level. His tutor says swim. Alvin did you learn anything from what i read to you yesterday. About exactly about who these two cities were who were in this war. And he'll like detroit and buffalo and the dude was like alvin. I just read this yesterday and he was like. I'm not worried about that. But then the very next scene they cut the alvin in the Watching film with the defensive coach and the coach's like yo rookies this. How you need to be out you ready now. I got that. And he's like yo. The coach says if they're running display on third down. What are we running alvin. Just like this i back. Thirty two formation. Unless they get into the i formation that we do this and blah blah blah. And he's hitting it off like a rapper freestyle down. it's beautiful. It is literally poetry. Everybody's mind is made for education right. Your mind might make something else. And there's no shame in that correct until you try and build yourself up and then once you put yourself on a pedestal. Like you know what i did. This and i did that. And you humble bragging about it. That's when you get that downfall. Also if that text messages between him and his daughter made it up publicly and he didn't put it on there then he might want to talk to his daughter about yo. I didn't want that to get out there. Don't get mad at her. Don't samer don't do anything like that. It'd like oh. I wanna let you know that ray point isn't something to be proud of in hindsight. That's what i got. But i was focus on other things in my career. Yeah if you go to college this is what you should be looking to attain this the lesson that he could have happened instead he wants to pander to the public like he's always done and that's why chad oto single point to in my opinion because the nigga stupid. It's interesting that he's saying that. This is trolling. I'm like but you're putting up. What you're saying is a conversation between you daughter. No one asks for this right you. You're now you're saying i'm just trolling. I'm like maybe we don't care about you. I don't care brandon marshall right. It's like this. Is my you and brandon marshall goddamn goofy yelling on youtube and brandon. Marshall is dead ass wrong about this and the fact that he's like men don't apologize as he sat there and didn't apologize is so super weird. We like you're not apologizing. You ain't shit. I don't know you don't know nothing nigger you just got your wayward lock and you yelling next to andre johnson. Saying anal. difference than me him i think. He said he run fast. And andre johnson's like nick. How have you lost your goddamn line. There's a lot of different ways this could have been handled and he just chose the wrong way. It's like you it's like oh you could just kept it in your group chat. It's like fuck you anyway. So really what. It is keeping group chest keeping address. Visit your charts message. You realized your text messages are only because you told and okay so another person who literally literally people literally could go to hell is tower. So i saw this on twitter to say what is he was wise shaven. His girlfriend kuchie on instagram. Said i what so. He put it on. His instagram is deleted. Because well obviously so in the video you just see. Her toes is using. I the razor. I'm looking at it. Like i feel like it's not even a really good razor but you know it's reese hatred or nothing better in a big that you get in the hospital before i feel like six girl. I saw the video of those Venus razors it is being is. It is a famous. But i feel like it's too cheap venus being rude but he deserves so this is the same man who after he was like so at the beginning the voice he was crying. Saying i want my wife back. Maybe i just want my baby So four months later he now has a new girlfriend named zely timothy. so apparently they've been doing a lotta. Pda on the on the social media on on file. So i don't know so apparently He has a new job. So i mean he's in the new fast movie which by the way the looks very interesting but it's also fast so i feel like the next step is space. I don't know if that's going to happen. But i feel like the next step release space like a young nigga is going to be on the moon stealing cars or what. I'm trying to galactic like yes like in the future like this is jason x. I feel like that should be your hindsight to until halloween. Please do jason x. Because my god is like it probably dates next. You're going to see what she started idea. Because i'm like we gotta do this. Because i'm like focused. Why is jason space and also. Why are we doing jason space same stupidest. Hail so manly his girlfriend was the one recording in and so it's only him you honestly her toes you don't see her coochie elise. I hope she don't because i refused to watch this video. 'cause my god no so. She is recording. Her legs are lifted and mere. Theresa's had i'm like. Oh so girl. What look you might as well be like One a hells energy from the diplomats. Not jim jones santana. You like you better be given back like if you wanna be like these other niggers on instagram camera. Given backsides and then deleting because i'm like yes i was like i so i'm confused sir. This is why they have the only fans. I feel like a main distracts. Weren't that great. But it may be onlyfans. Level is why. I thought this is what this video is going to turn into She told him to put the cream on. I mix it with some oil because apparently this is his video. I will never have her video. I will never ever let go by king but does your man shave your shave you though. No you know what i just wanna. I just want to jump in real quick. No i don't know why like i what to do. Exactly what shit like. That looks like. you'll be painful for like no. There's never go back show. S just not that special. I feel like there's women will for one. I feel like there's women who Who likes stay shave but you know end up pregnant and their partner. You did yeah. It's not it's not a novel thing more ado touche like this one on one shit like these things called professionals and also a less dense party your intimacy your kink. 'cause there's some people who enjoy it. I've watched that episode sex in the city. Although i'm sorry tarries need to be funded. I mean he needed throwing our. I don't have time for balasuriya's please fund tavarez. So apparently he deleted it. Or maybe it's on hers who the fuck knows. And i'm like i hold on. I need to check something. 'cause i feel i have a feeling i know what's going to be on this page when i click her name. I just want confirmation. Because i feel like i just what i what i really wanna know is. Yep that's what i thought. No gotta go started. When she started filming it was theresa. Okay with it. Like did he find that. Like that's of course. Not because i only saw like a little snippet of it when her feet were already in the air and all that kind of stuff was he cool with being filled in what he is gone online like again. That's another thing like with chad. His daughter like yellow. I'll have a talk about what you wanna do with this video. There are certain consented to happen. Even if you're shaving her cha-cha okay. Cool and is not your couch on the air. You're shaving it. You still have an image. You'll have a brand so like this. Is the same thing to me. Member way back shontae. When brian mcknight put out that video about letter you pussy works. Let me try to make it squirt. Were miss that same shit to me. This isn't that same realm. You're doing something good but at the same time jokes are going to commoners waken. Avoid a pleasure teresi. You're gonna stay losing. I would talk to her like yo video stays within between us. You don't put that out there. I know you're new to our relationship and all but i'm trying to have a very private lifestyle so winter page is literally i thought was going to be but there's more. Oh oh so okay. I gotta go back now. I'm very. i've been very vocal about this. Everybody knows how i feel about. Leo's i am so you already know how i feel this bitches. Lille she going to go forward this bitch on her story. I'm sorry this this lady. I kind of like her her leo tattoo but she has a whole story of her being tattooed. And i'm sitting here like you know. If you had just taught theresa do this you could. You could save some money because you know you into him doing these things but she also has up in our story wait. Let me get this. I'm supposed to seek validation with my life from your mother fuckers. I don't know who got it. And i'm like but ma'am you are public looking at her pictures and a few things one. She looks very young. She looks very very young to all of her picture. She has a really nice like she has nice thighs. And a nice zeke. Well she and she's he's she's taking pictures. That are what we used to call her. Straps snow seems like she's out there like you said for the attention like one hundred percent. She she's our dominican. Leo allegedly several others. I could list. I'll go look for that list. I literally will search for any other dominican woman who is leo and i mean i don't know if she was getting these Getting these numbers in her. You know these numbers as far as her pictures or whatnot before tirees for shirt down. Maybe she's just you know caught up in the rapture of of being in this relationship and having notoriety because of him and and because of what she's already doing but yeah so you know it's really funny now. We're all old enough to remember how res made it a point to rail against plastic surgery. Make up in here. And i'm looking at his choice of girlfriend and i'm like yes. This is why. I know y'all full of shit y'all full of shit. Stop this. y'all full of shit on the why y'all be is seen a bonus internet line like a bunch of niggers that lie. It's like yeah. I'm like you got these thirty three year. Old women full. I know for a goddamn fact full ship going end well for one of them. It's probably i hope it's therese because i don't want bad things for this nation not at all not at all your aca say a lot but it seems like she might be like the type that you like. Oh hey how you how you doing. Can you tell me about yourself. She probably told me. Google her and he's like i don't need a google bezerra. Agai don't see that's route Stephanie growth trying to try to be better hearing finished which year he finished mcdonald's so so good luck theres's now maybe he's going to go to aestheticians school. 'cause you know doesn't case another near the rock decides to make another movie that his ass ain't getting casted in and he had a fallback plan might he could use. This is like maybe if he to use video see ashamed girlfriends kuchis. I'm like. I just need some tips. Multi do extractions so mickey this weekend also along the oscars. We had the memorial for d. m. x. And i literally thought he was sunday. And so when i missed it i say they missed it but of course you can go back. There's plenty of clips. I'm glad that there are a lot of people out there. People trying to were kind of being safe but also they're like bitch. I got the vaccine. So i can be near you niggers and i'm like see that's not how this works but okay It was good to see a lot of the rough riders. Come out I think a lot of speeches were done. Well and i will say the swiss beats. His speech is a black black black speed. Because i feel like every black feud you go to. There's that one person that's going to remind you. Where the fuck y'all when he was alive and the fact that his swiss beats is interesting. 'cause they're like mantras broke like where were you. Where are you. It was kinda like you. I wish i will be around him. I'm like oh i'm sorry. Did i miss you. In his aggie stories oil is instagram. That i miss de mexico you in threat or did i miss it. But you know it's kinda like it's it's part of the black fiona. There's going to be somebody that speaks. That's gonna say y'all bunch of raggedy bitches for nasa poor my nigga when he was alive and i was maybe a little bit surprised speeds but i guess i shouldn't be i mean but you gotta be honest when you say swiss beats never been the most aware of the room back to alicia keys and his wife and we shonda so needed to fight. But i think for me the best part of this The clips from the phone has to be the relationship between to share a simmons and does lindstrom sold t of because everybody knows to share as his ex wife but does was his fiancee at his passing and two one to shiro looked casca sharp in two for the fact that she said i'm a real woman i do grown woman things that she said you grown women things and to see literally the love between those two. You don't typically see that a lot So i think that just marks how much of a grown woman to share a really is and how much does array is so the see them embracing was just a beautiful moment and i was just like see. Y'all need to stop at like black women. So candidate can't support one another day camp and so this is what sucks is like. We don't always get to see that. I'm like it's like we know it but we're just like it's good to see it on camera and then other people can see they're like oh my god. This is like a uniform. And it's like it's truly not. But i feel like for some people. It does feel like an unicorn and it's not but one. That's probably why i've always kind of liked to secret sipowicz. She always seemed like he had seen as an again. We over but you know if all of my kids that's it i'm never going to hate them So that means. I feel like in. She couldn't possibly hate as right. I feel like she just couldn't do it like she. Not the reason that we not give is his as his cheat nez in his like him cheating and also his Issues with drugs again. Swiss beats baby. He'd been on drugs since he was fourteen. So please don't do that please. Don't ever sir you cheater. Shut the hell up. Sorry see but nothing quite like when somebody who des mexican swazi were together at the very lease when the mx put together his second album Which came out a ninety eight by ryan. I'm almost certain that in the studio where they were putting these beats in this in these songs in this production everything together. There were drugs. Because i've been in the studio before who i am. Also very certain that swazi didn't say anything to curtail any of the drugs are going around there Being allies foreign but being an after the fact is just cowardly. You didn't stand up during the time when he was actually doing the drugs in like x. Your family needs. You don't need to be doing this x. let me walk you the right way. Whatever it may be so you can't stand that her funeral and be like i was. I may not have helped out. But i wasn't the only one who didn't help out if you say we all failed him. I'll be okay. What you saying. We all fell diem. Mex- i mean. I still say you did it more than me because you had access to them. But i do understand but viewpoint finger at everybody else to say that they fell. Joe nigga. yeah. That's what i was like. See and that's like that's so part of black funerals always at one person. That's like where the fuck y'all went like. Well we don't know what a fuck you were. You studio woodham the thing about either like it's weird like where were you always like but the thing about it is. There are thousands of people. Risking the rona. They may not have the vaccine to come to pay respects to d. mx so as to a certain extent. I hear you but a comma. All these people are actually here. they could. They could be like. I could literally be at home watching paint dry. Swiss beats you have millions of dollars and you are living with that lady who got off fooled and things you don't wanna fuck and make makeup asset it because fuck y'all okay. It's like you know what i'm that god is so we should just be natural ma'am please cell that the people who don't know make up. I'm just saying you have an opportunity to help somebody help somebody. But don't be there after the fat like y'all didn't help him either like that's what i'm saying. I was like okay. So i feel it. This roads a wrong way because one. It seems like he died. He had a heart attack suddenly so it wasn't like he had been sick for a while had been in hospice. That's totally different. 'cause y'all not doing all this shift a black ride. Nope he down to here. Here's a here's the thing. I have just as much of an issue. No not just much. Oh yeah. I have an issue. No i'm not talking about black rod like that when he died. I was like whoa I have an get you city. I have an issue with people who don't help when they could have helped. Just i haven't issue with people who record themselves helping when they do though. These are two different of the spectrum. But if you're sitting here looking at homes people like why didn't anybody else feed them with. You could a fathom money to do so. I have an issue with you at the same time if you're right here with the selfie camera taking picks or what the camera tell you what why you cook. Every bit of food exactly issue. What you to so sweaty for you to ask where anybody else was. I have an issue with that but no one swazi in the way his life has led if he had helped him he probably would have been like mamiya extra going to the to the fucking rehab right now so we can get reiten ain't nothing you're shaming him by helping him. Yes so so. Here's the thing. So this is why i have a bigger thing with Black rob the fact that he had a gofundme. Me and diddy is a whole billionaire. Like why the fuck are we doing. Go fund me and dibiase a billionaire that is slowly fifty cents in your pocket. Get five cent your goddamn pilot pocket. What the why. Excuse me did he is right there. Mr take that take that like why why nobody coming after duty. It became like everybody felt. No no why. Why is it everybody on bad board. Except maybe sort of faith. Evan but also is probably because she's on song writer be the reason why she's a little bit different but everybody else get. They don't have love stories. They don't have like a long jetty in the field. That is music. Nobody has a good story that there's no way blake the that way period. I don't care if you had talked to him in years. You're a fucking billionaire. I'm not open your purse. They we should not be asking. People like debbie. You could've just did. It is like even. If you're like. Well i can't save them. Well then you can make sure he like. His family is struggling to take care of him. Take care of his funeral arrangements. I'm like you could just do that. I'm like are you fucking getting me. But y'all wanna tell me what did he think i give a fuck. Did he thinks about anything at all. Nine hundred fucking weather. What did you think about what. I don't give a damn what that nigga think now. We're black rob dying the way he did absolutely not. You can like leave me the fuck alone because you wanna let him porter that way. I just noticed the mother of your children. But it's still somebody that you care about who literally like. I'm sorry helped make you rich bitch. Because he surely didn't make himself rich. He helped you make you rich and you couldn't just buried him without just alleviate something like i wasn't there but i'm gonna make sure this is not something y'all got to deal with going into berry somebody go ahead. Bassani didn't black rob. Wasn't he a big reason. Why puff daddy in the family. You know puppies. I cd were puffy. Couldn't wrap it all nigga literally said i don't write rhymes write checks black rob shop like a lot of those songs and helped him go platinum on that album. I mean black. Rob came after biggie died. And oh yeah. I mean the but what i'm saying is residual residual getting something. Sunny gotten something. What the thing. But that's the thing deity sean. Combs is less scumbag. Like you look at him as a scumbag bottom line. It totally makes sense at every last one of his artists. Outside of life like stephanie. Said like faith evans. They end up in a worse situation or a best option than they did when before they got into it like they say ride the you know they live in you know and everything is don't for a little bit but eventually there she falls off a ditty she keeps on rising. And that's basically it is like you know. I don't know if the right word sukey bruce but that's all i can think of is. Just where where he he takes the lifeforce of other people you know. He takes what he can get from them and once they can no longer perform anymore. Whatever that performance is sin. He will move onto the next thing and until he got to the point where his star was big enough where he didn't necessarily need to have artists under him anymore. He didn't need to be on anybody's video. Albany video and all on this stuff you know. Once he pain you know capital. Be diddy then. He didn't need artist anymore but for a time he was he was on people should he was out there and but he he is. You know you know what it is. What is the record. industry Number ruinously rule or thousand and eighty eighty. Yeah record away with her sadie exchange thinking damn and there's your handling they go through there but it's like they're mismanaged. They signed bad deals. They gotta walk to get cheese cheesecake. I wish fuck up. What ads are. Why is walking to get you. Cheesecake the flex i was like. I still don't understand that. And so i was watching rodney. Voice will youtube and he was playing a song by the girl that used to be in diddy dirty money. Kalina nat don richard. The other one so he was playing a by i to figure out what song it was. Those like that's how i like to songs like there's talent and it's like but no way that a billionaire should've let black rob die that way because if this was a white billion yada came after his s. What the fuck. Why are you not helping. But it seemed really. You know this guy. Stephane wall of we can't be attacking the berlet. Y'all know what their situation is. And yeah man gang. It made his grandmother. That's exactly how they do like like it's one thing like they're quick to criticise certain people thing on the other on the flipside. Whenever somebody might be justified we being criticized they quick to be like well. We don't know really going on on the situation day. A bad douyin. He's a billionaire. They only they only ask for fifty thousand dollars. This not a lot to a billionaire is not and he got and that's the other thing too like saying billionaire. Who knows if all on site friel money billionaire. But you got fifty k. You offline thing last month nigger fuck you like you got it you know. There's a certain point with some. You know making you rich. I know you rich like we might like you have like like in you. Buy like a private jet whenever you feel like you know like probably should. That's out of the realm of possibility even though you're talking like it isn't a real possibility but you got fifty teenagers. You got it. There's no reason for somebody like that to be doing. Go no way. And he got as much as he did. Because he's black. Rob and you're and you're pulling on people who like know if i'm gonna get a four stimulus but i got twenty dollars and i'm gonna give it to black rob. It's like that's what we're looking at. Nicholson fucking purse. But that's how we see that's how people who don't have it moves where we don't when people don't have it. They will give that. Monday will kick out that twenty dollars to somebody if they say that that twenty dollars can help and somebody who really does have it. They act like they. They can't do it strapped. I'm strapped. I wouldn't will turn around and say the reason why. I'm successful when you're not because i've money to people and i teach them how to like them negative. We're talking about aid. Rather have a meal with jay z where they learn how to make eighty million dollars. You get eighty million dollars. That's them like no. I don't need you to teach me how to make five hundred thousand dollars. I need you to give me one hundred thousand dollars. Don't be the gateway. Don't be the gatekeeper to like negative. You could've saved her life. You could period period. That's what that's what all boils down to. And i hope he can't sleep thinking about that shit but i know he sleeps mainly just everything ends up being okay for him. Every time that he's involved with one of his artists he comes out. Okay are this comes out. It's not just black rob. it's also shine. It's also biggie. It's also little kim. It's also craig mack. It's also day twenty six and then we've got. The cheesecake is dead. He came all the way down. All where the fuck is one. Twelve edward fuck is wallace focused. Something like damn. I gotta go down the diddy rabbit hole swallows. Let me tell you something. One twelve made the bob but that versus was like i feel like one. I don't like jagged edge enough for this in this really ain't this ain't the. That's not the battle that i was looking for quite frankly. It really should have been drew hill. But that's never mind. Let me be quite 'cause. I don't wanna i wanna ride nigga. Probably think that y'all probably still on this. I don't want to rally the negative who think that chris brown is ashes contemporary. He ain't i'm not. i'm not even his worst day. Even when boggs day we have you have you right now because my beloved wife nisha let me know in the car. She jumped me. I wasn't ready for it. You know me you know that. I'm a big hamilton head right now. Like i listen to hamilton. At least three times a week okay. So when she hopped up and played ushers of wait for it From the hamilton mix tape. I was taken aback. That's why us right now. It's really eddie. And that's why we're gonna move on so you know what we're not doing ashram in the fourth weena. We not doing this i. His first name is not gonna get it. I guess first name was not usher. Madame his first. Name's us shah show a. Shes did you hear that new us so yet was to urge her is like a low. No usher is charging. You need to find a seat us. I'll know if you get fan and turkey. Focus what they call them. I'm just me. And my eyes. When i when i explain to you when a church in the old the old church mothers are coming in they get help out by hersher. Hersher helps them today. Seat young nick is on the block when they find out. That new us should on came out. It's a whole different face. Thing y'all you hear that new usher shit. This is why. I'm like. I'm sitting here like yala telling me the nigga who can't get off the booger sugar for at least three weeks is going up against the mega. Who got a fucking las vegas residency. He's learned the long lost super bowl halftime. Show that we deserve. I know you're fucking line to me. Like i need dr stop deaths it. Your parents need to love your better. Stop stop sniffing paint. Stop licking other fuck. Y'all doing. i'm like y'all have lost your mind on we're cam was like i could have been ushered he really could have and i would i. I'll allow it. 'cause it's fucking tevin campbell but like stop trying to pull random i if you won't give him somebody give them somebody better. I said it no. It's not just in fucking timberlake. You know goddamn well in a never going to be you know. They can't be no birth. Anyway this is black. Only iphone versus right and it's gonna be r s e. It's i this. I'm like so we just singing versus. What are we doing. What are we doing this. Why can't we just say okay. We got the eagles verses. Fleetwood mac and alone got reba. Mcentire parton sally own. Don't even fame up. You gotta get christina. Let me tell you need versus christina's like okay. So this is the versus. We didn't ask for. But i'm here for it so you do that. I mean i'm just saying. I mean i get it is is like yeah no okay so last story maki is actually a couple of stories about Actually no it's just the doctor story. This is dr rosario to you so apparent we're on the zoom. We're still in the paint pepperoni pizza. And we still don't zooms. so this. is the thing about pronouns entitles folks high. hr here If someone gives you their pronouns in their titles or announced their name you use it you do not have to look at what it says. Mass zoom title. 'cause it's like when you're on zoom for people who don't know you can either if you don't change it you can change it whenever you want but if i Changed to one hundred. Percents that bitch in a professional zoom. I hope y'all won't call me one hundred percent one hundred percent. I mean i feel like that's fine. But i feel like i get a talking to so why do you have bitten your title. 'cause i'm a hundred percent that bitch that's why but i'm at work so they had a a g. all right so i'm going to read this all out so zoning commissioner and greensboro north carolina so you already know how this is going. We're in the south thousand going. So he's in a Electable in voted in position. He's out of said position by unanimous. Vote because he refused to acknowledge a black doctors title during a meet a public meeting. Meaning that no-one didn't drop this out. This is for the public. Everybody can see this so in the meeting. Tony collins was talking I think she spoke and then he was responding to her. He called her. Mrs mrs rosario mid he's at so mrs rosario dr rosario so ms are it's Doctor was arielle. Because i think the reason that she repeated it. Because you know when you're zunes sometimes we always don't here like women. I'm sorry there's somebody say something. So that's why the second time he said it. She didn't say nasty. 'cause that's happened on things like what did you just say. So then he looked up at the screen and said well it says carriers are. You'll your thing. Hi carey if actually dr rosario. So she did this a multiple times and she said i wouldn't call you tony. She's please sir comments. I would like to be called. That's what i identify myself. Because she said. I wouldn't just call you tony though you see this quip so apparently during the meeting before somebody else called her mrs collins and she corrected them so it's not like he didn't know her other people she had to correct and the thing about is is she's leary told you she's a doctor wash. She had to put dr carrie. Rosario you probably still would have called her carey or miss. Rosario your because it don't say doctor and you're gonna fix it no you weren't gonna say anyway bitch. So why are you at like she wrong. But the fact that. I have a feeling because apparently after the zoom and people called and like people apologize to her. Currently he left her a voicemail and apologised. Yet you can keep it. So he got voted out. But i have a feeling it's mostly because of wien public response to it as opposed thinking like so. Why didn't you just or better yet. Why didn't anybody on that call step in to say. Hey hi so tony. If she's asking you to call her. Dr king you just mike you know you just call. Her doctor is is it. An issue is like the same like it was an issue to cali. Black person are doctor. But i have a feeling because tony is no doctor. County hate nasa fucker. That's and that's why again new job childish though hoteliers. Yeah go ahead. i'm talking to. It's just a it's just a strange thing to just be stubborn about how somebody wants to be addressed especially something like that because it's like i'm sure he's come across dudes are doctors and if he has mistakenly not called him something or whatever and they've corrected him he's probably called the doctors or is this just weird it's just like why wouldn't the person you know and also i mean maybe the person wants when they're speaking if they're you know depending on whatever kind of doctor they are they want you know whoever's listening to know that this they're a learned person learning person so you know they are doctors. So they're not just some regular motherfucker. You know out here. So why shouldn't title you know. Why should they be addressed with their title. How their own title. yeah. I don't when my mom got To worst he worked to be before she retired. I it was it was. I think she was vice. President of the company something like that. She worked hard to get to where she was. Yeah that was always at least one guy in the tele meeting that they would have who always would try and flex in test the boundaries of what was acceptable to be said to this woman. Who was their manager or who was literally under only one person in on one point The president of the company was about to speak up and stand for my mom. And i'm not saying this to reflect back on widened. This woman do this. But we're mom was like i don't need your voice if i use your voice in one situation they're going to always expect your voice to be my boys like that's you speaking for me. I can take care of this myself. But she check the fuck out of that young man because he was in the wrong he. She checked out of that white boy because he was in the wrong It's not always like that. Though where to lug with everybody else to check the fuck out of this dude who kept getting broad like your silence is literally encouraging him to keep going with his bag with his poor decisions and so it's not difficult for you to simply turn to him and even if it's even better if y'all friends to turn to mri like y'all chill you know what. The docs name is called her by her name. Call her by what she wants to be. Called the crazy thing about it. is this everyday occurrence. And it's like you want me to call. There's folks who will say you need to call my mother or father mr mrs or whatever because they're older than you gotta respect your elders s cool. I needed to call me by my pronouns. Districts bag except mine is life and death in your digest. You know you want me to kowtow to your your parents when really done shit to or for me so right now. Correct alike i. She had the composer that black women in corporate spaces. Have to your. And i'm just like the bad part about it. If she had literally laid him out he would have deserved it. But here's the rub. If she had been all son everybody would have piped up and say okay. Let's move on. It's like women. Why not. why did i have to get to seventeen on seven and wanna correct him now. You wanna tell me act dumb. No do it in the moment. Stop apologizing to as like. Oh my god that was so crazy. I'm like why are you saying something. Now you saw it then you know what never saw being absolutely infuriating is when somebody does some fuck shit and people can soul you in private messages right. Oh and there were there publicly. That i'm like and you said nothing because i i can't believe he did that to you. I can't believe that that that that that that that he tried to make their stand. Where were you when it actually happened. It happened yeah. You remind me to tell you a story about a clubhouse him later with johnny because yeah. I don't know why these kids play with me. 'cause baby i'm not the one or two In please baby. I've been an adult for way too long. And i know how to play this but anyway so let's move on. Let starting hockey. And i cannot believe. I'm putting him in hockey. But i'm putting him there for a reason. Mr talla perry. He wanted yesterday awesome. He accepted the jean hersholt humanitarian award for his work feeding helping others during a pandemic. So that other people won't won this award at the oscars is oprah angelina. Jolie harry bellefonte. Debbie reynolds and gena davis recipes. Debbie reynolds adorable. I just miss her. So part of his speech was a little bit loan. There's a snippet that is on the time line of people having an issue. So i'm going to read the whole give. More context could quote. But i still got an issue with it and i'm having another quote from something else that will make this under this tight end. So he said don't speech. My mother taught me to refuse hate. She told me to refuse blanket judgment and in this time and with all the internet and social media algorithms and everything that wants us to think a certain way the twenty four hour news cycle. It is my hope that all of us we teach our kids. And i want to remember just refuse hate. Don't hate anybody. I refuse to hate someone because they are mexican or because they are black or white or lgbtq are refused the hey someone because they are a police officer. I refuse to. Hey someone because they are asian. Now the sentence. I refuse to hate someone because they are police. Officer is what's on the time line right now. Now in a more that gives context that he's like my mama told me not to hate nobody. And you know we all in the peplum address so you know we we all got to be together. And i'm like that's very nice at the oscars at the bt wards a few years ago he said this while everybody was fighting for a seat at the table talking about hashtag oscarssowhite oscar. So why. I said y'all go ahead and do that. But while you're fighting before seated at table i'll be down in atlanta building my own when i started hiring raji viola davis in egypt's elba idris egg like hell. No i'm sorry. He gives you the miraculous. I don't know her. I don't know they couldn't get jobs in this town but god blessed me to be in a position to be able to hire them. I was trying to help somebody cross in a time when in a time where my counterparts were making way. More than i was tyler. Perry was the first. Pay me my work. That is what to raji head and to a certain extent he is. Yeah because because he got top billing in tyler perry movie because of a maze so much it was easy for having her to have the discussion so i actually give that to trust me. I'm tyler perry also said every dreamer in this room. There are people whose lives are tied into your dream on your stuff on your business on your way. So it's very interesting that you're saying something different to not apples and oranges. But it's very interesting from tyler. Perry so i've always had a problem when we talked about this before if i'm not mistaking the whole idea of the building of a table which is cool. You know laundry inviting other people to sit at like you can't build your own table and then be like this. New golden state will yes. Just you need a writing table. Sir and editing tape ahead right right like if you have these the your your crowing about how you couldn't now shows like sisters words all black women but you're the only rider so there's nobody to bounce your bullshit off though the you're not helping anybody. Yeah you're out now black actors and actresses but you're not helping now black writers elmore now. Yeah black directors help this whole other genre. People were looking for a way through. Because you don't want to give up that power even though you get more power your mother motherfucking. So that's why. I had to take a big gulp. It's like it was coming. It's like let's go. Let's death because every single time that he says he's doing something he's really not and there's a ton of people out there who will say well. I've done this this person. But that benefited you too rod. You became a star not because of you but in spite of you because honestly i still don't know how she got on their goddamn boat and this is and i told somebody else's this is why i am never gonna watch that movie. I'm like you're not going to get to jokes. I'm like no. I'm i'm pretty. I'm on upticks. What the jokes are is. I'm not doing this. I don't know no no don't wanna know because then i'm going to be mad in fact that caused interviewed his ass and he still didn't answer the question and it was just like so nigga you know how she got on the boat either. Besides baby boy was done by john. Singleton that was her first big seen her bursts. Our first big thousand one was done by john singleton which means that. You didn't discover her. Yeah she may not have gotten another roles but she got another role regardless. because she's a fucking star. You did nothing with her but put her in these movies. Where she was just south thing he couches it in. I discovered her which is not true. You're right it's not shaves. Losing like i got top billing taliban movie and this made a whole bunch of money. So when i ask for more money and he's white movies they give it to me. Why because perry has very low budget but then he makes like forty fifty million dollars at the box office. And it's like oh well you're bankable stars so yeah let's make sense. Yeah what i'm saying. Is why would white folks give you money just because you were in a tyler. Perry movie most folks. I know what it'd be like go back. Well i'm talking about like the the the bankable box office numbers. I think it's just the money i am. It's just the money. no. I'm not debate net at all. I'm just angry at him for thinking that his this is why immigrants. No yo ass. He'd be like what you're you're you're you're discounting all at our talented by saying that them being in your head exactly. This is the part that i have a problem. Because i didn't even realize he said viola davis and i'm like so i had the issue with you saying vile excuse me the the black excellent. The black excellence that viola. Davis is your lucky show. Make no fucking music. 'cause she'd been the e got by now so for you to be like you claiming this for viola ex like she been fucking doing this for god knows how long and also she wasn't sean land for how many us making sean delaying better. I mean she had carried everybody else. However it's like it's vile a fucking davis queen of screen and fater. I know you fucking line if you think in that because she was in my movie. I'm like you mean the ran. Random movie Madeup fame media goes to jail. I'm glad you said it. Because i wonder what movie she was in. She was a medieval she was. I'm trying to. She was like a therapist or a police. I don't know what the fuck she was because she he had. Derek luganda literally the best cryer i've ever seen in my life. You'd fucking antoine fisher in your in. Your movie is interesting. You aim listed him. You like you either album. Did not get where he was because he was in daddy's little girls. Fuck that movie. By the way. And i love gary. Oh you still fuck that movie okay. Oh my god if you doubt what happens to my kids your they're fucking father. You fucking kidding me. Any what seeing ma'am give man but the family. That preys really is amazing. And i noticed you not throwing alfre woodard in that list or God lee so now liken sonali now leighton if gabrielle. You do we really want to be about it. What's the name of the woman who was in misery. Didn't you say yes. Like yeah like you can't say nothing about kathy bates cause you ain't make kathy bates country say that about why people didn't you white people want you to say you may black people because you think white gonna believe because they don't pay attention to talk about. I'm like so loud. Davis busted her soda. Taurasi p hinson. You didn't you. it's kind of like. She didn't use the box office numbers to get the money for a top billing in a white movie. But please don't think if you put her in a movie she wouldn't be nowhere and it's like that's that's complicated for me. That's why it's like. I have a complicated issue tyler. Perry i don't knock anybody who likes and stuff because it's like that's fine. It's like i get it. It's like that's fine. But i think sometimes what he says so weird when he frames it in says. I just can't hate nobody. But you telling us that i depend on. Why people in my bill my own table. I'm sorry baby you're talking about is it's like i don't like wait a minute. What does this sound different. Because you in this room full of white people for bt you wanna come and say. We need to make our own table. I'm like you don't hire no writers. And editors because they have a fucking union. You don't wanna pay them. Let's be very isolated. please spare me. it's like i i is like you see. I'm like you almost got me. See there you go. I'm like i'm not only by. Not the lifestyle peres is not what we saying. Well hold on. I can't speak. I clean up way minutes. So one day for retro book club. I am going to read animal farm. Just so y'all know. And you prepared for mentally ratchet book clubs gonna read animal. Farm has there so much shit that happens in animal farm. The nigger just missing tyler. Perry in a comparison. Animal find Tyler perry is crowing that i kicked all the humans off my farm and now too far for animals and then as soon as he gets everybody off the farm all the white folks off his farm he wanted like a white person he starts walking on two legs now he wants to act just like them we looking back and forth like we can't tell between you and then white people tyler. Yeah you have that place out in atlanta. Yeah you did avengers endgame over there. Yeah you brought condom to atlanta. Yeah that's great and all that but what have you done for the folks who don't have voices you know who don't have voice of the people who wanna right people who take out billboards to be your stuff and you're like oh my god. Why are you doing that. But then you hired her. I'm like so it worked is what you're saying. I'm cool on tyler. Perry for a million different reasons. Pass what everybody makes. Fun of is like do i like that. You help people to pandemic absolutely because that is a humanitarian thing. But i really wish like your work. You would edit yourself when you talk. 'cause i'm like i don't think you realize how that sounds and it's pretty fucked up like we need to stop hating each other. But i'm bill my own table. Fuck these white people. I'm sorry. Wait what's and i'm like an also. Why are you actually acting like it wasn't because outside was closed last summer all of a sudden why people like. Oh my god. There's racism and not elaine. My god where the hell by been in your white bubble bitch like act like literally we had to have a global pandemic still had to shut down for people to risk for white people to realize what we say. Black lives matter is because when something happens to the us. Y'all act like it's not a big deal that's on my stands on some is next for nine minutes and thirty six seconds. Yes thank you trial for clearing that up. That's living burned into my brain. I wish it didn't live there. Rent free that that is not okay. Literally the only reason why it's more why people on us out of this is fucked up is because y'all can't argue against it does no. You could argue against for some reason. Y'all argued against tamir rice in some weird ass reason. Yeah argued against mike brown. Your argues against eric garner. You argued against travel martin. Who was not killed by police officer but literally. He gets the same kind of privilege which interesting for this. You couldn't because literally was closed outside and nothing else to focus on and all them shows were on break. 'cause it's a pandemic they stop filming and outside close you're like oh my god. This is what black people go through girl. George floyd wasn't the only tragedy that happened within three fucking month period and that is the bad part there were others others that we're just finding out about because i had no idea who pam turner was in texas mike weight focus partner like what. What are you talking about and has happened in two thousand nineteen. Yeah yeah last stories. Makhaya bright what happened to her. How y'all have literally been proving our point when we talk about when it comes business. Why after the verdict was read. And then they had everybody and their momma coming to talk. I appreciate sandra bellin cousin talking like like are you excited. And she was just. Like i'm sandra bland's cousin what the fuck you mean like you. She's not unhappy. For george floyd but realize that's not going to happen for her cousins. Sandy how do you think that makes her feel emmett. Till's with george floyd family emmett hill like jato like it's like this. That's the kind of bullshit that we're talking about emmet fucking till so. If y'all have y'all been sitting under iraq is just y'all been extremely predictable about about mikhail. Brian and there's like literally several different raves about. Her name is being spelled. I honestly it doesn't matter what spelling her name is. Kind of like if you spell it. Ma k. Hi okay if you spell it. M. i k. I y h okay all like i'm trying to figure out what her how her name is. Spelled i think is may h. a. Is her name. How expelled i. If i'm correct. I think that is how her name is spelled. It's also an apostrophe in between a occa- but for a hashtag of course it's not going to be it's not gonna work for a hashtag so they hand memorial hall and someone put it out on the facebook. Fyi i went to the memorial yesterday spoke with mikhail bryant family and friends. Those girls one was a twenty eight year. Old adult had come to mikhail. Brian's foster home three days in a row trying to fight her the foster mom is the one who had the girls come fight. Makhaya claiming she was unruly. Everyone in the entire house was against yet. When her father came she finally felt safe enough to come out and fight. Imagine a fifteen or sixteen year old depending on the us thinking process of having to fight a twenty eight year old and others and her foster mother calling to have her beat up. Mike is little sister is the one who made the nine one one. Call three days straight all by herself. I'm sure mci was extremely scared but felt she had to be brave and protect herself by any means necessary. This information has come out in the media just yet but if the investigation is done properly and there's transparency you all will hear about it have the cop taste. Her simply attempted to stop her from stabbing the girl he could found that out. And that's why he along with the foster mother. An all is one of these All the all the adults are at fault. And that's all. I have to say so. There was a young man who got shot in a school bathroom. They believe seventeen his golf. Apparently his girlfriend came home with bruises. So her momma called and called. The police police went to the school and shot him. I have seen more sympathy for their boy in a young woman who literally was defending herself and people are literally bidding themselves up getting on the fucking google to look up how Training police training and using terms for the center mass to defend why shooting a four times a sixteen year. Old girl like a dog is okay and literally as you're saying that officers say that other girl's life that boy they got shot allegedly put his hands on someone's daughter see. That wouldn't have been the call. The call would have been so. I just beat this boy with an inch of his life because he put his hands on. My daughter boy is getting more sympathy. Then mikhail bryant and you're approving the point. This is why. I had a problem with comma harris talking about police brutality and thing especially black men. I said stop doing that. Stop doing that because that literally. You act like when it is black women who get killed or sexually assaulted like in oklahoma. Hello officer horse qua- when that happens when they get sexually assaulted in custody in because there are state laws that say police officer can had consensual sex with people they arrest. I'm sorry how are you making sure. This is consensual. If he's arresting me. This is why. I have a problem with y'all doing y'all found every reason not to just go. Yes shooting her down like a dog foot. Four bullets in her is an issue. Y'all louis finding ways but y'all got hashtag protect black women s tag girl man and y'all bios y'all can just delete this shit right on out. 'cause y'all don't believe it don't put that. Don't girl gerlad adding your bio. 'cause kobe is no longer with us. Don't put don't put protect black men. 'cause i'm sorry Black women because dwayne wade. Lebron james tweet get shit out. Y'all don't believe the words you say because you can't even just say look what the fuck happened to. Her should not have happened especially when she was defending herself. Her mama can't even like she's like i trouble just saying i only have four children because she mcconnell was her fifth she's like i have trouble saying that but y'all want to argue about semantics and police training when i literally saw video of a cop gets stabbed in the neck by a white boy and it didn't even occur to him to shoot him he. You're like literally is on the line because he stabbed you in the neck you. You're chasing him with your gun. Been shoot pin switch from a gun to a taser. Still didn't take him and stopped up the wound and still delo boy still alive. There man stabbed you but you're actually trying to tell me that. He had to put bullets in this girl. Y'all saying that ship. John want say basis. But y'all want us marching for you just like asia. I forget koran gains either. 'cause i listened at those videos of korean came out and no same men were just like. Oh my gosh and black lives matter and what you get the air on and brought up every black man has been killed. Same men were saying if she just complies she still be alive. Pretend makhaya brian is a black man. Then you'd have some sympathy for her yano. You talk about tony mcdaid. Tony gate was a trans man and when you ask me like why they they miss gender him and called him a woman so you're still proving our point. Y'all only talking about brianna. Taylor could celebrities are talking about brianna taylor. Y'all want really talking about a on jefferson. I want really talk about sandra bland. There's a say her name for a reason is because y'all don't say them y'all like bury them under like ten. Black men have died. They should they should still be alive to. But when y'all make excuses about why it's okay for black women and black men to that. That makes it easier for white people to do that. Shit a lot of the arguments. Y'all have from cairo brian. I've her wipe people say that about every black man. Except maybe george floyd that has been killed by a cup. Why look fucking stupid. Y'all get on my god damn nerves and it's just hurtful because the bad part about it is we as black men. We still on march for ya. Essy's still y'all can't even just re tweet. Y'all can't even just put something positive. You can't argue against the status quo. Y'all can't even do it. It's like if y'all don't stand up for us why you think any non black person would stand up for us. That's why they don't like police brutality. Don't happen to us. You don't know the danger of being a black woman in this country truly is 'cause the call is coming from inside the house and across from the fucking st john wants to have that conversation because is diluting. The fight for black lives matter. I'm black mci. Bryant was black. Tony mcdade was black. Every black trans woman has been murdered by a black man. They were all black too. But i guess you're only talking about black men right. I'm glad it's dying down because my god y'all pieces of shit that you can't just go up and also because i think the other thing with the young man in the bed in the bathroom is because his girlfriend's mama is white so now it's like she said that luke she set that black boy up to be killed if he put his hands on my daughter he would be killed and would need to call the cops because at a beat his ass. And you're acting like because she's white we're going to act like him putting his hands on. This girl is okay. They young men who got shot in his grandma's backyard. It was like oh my god. This is terrible until we realized how he don't really like black women so when black women like we're not doing this how you're just not going to stand up for him because he didn't like people who look like me but then all of a sudden it became like why are we not about why you're not talking about it because you actually black women were. Y'all wanna organize and have a movement. There will be no black lives matter movement without three queer black women but jaw kind of ignore that part. We wouldn't have no pride month without black and brown trans women but again you act like we don't matter and it's just gross and pathetic in tired and late on women who march george floyd. Some of them did not march brianna. Taylor they were not marching for black trans lives in new york. They much for y'all s and y'all wouldn't even like like y'all won't like reach we yelling. Did something similar social media. There are people who put their lives on the line for some odd reason when it comes to blackness the face of it is assist head black man as if black women weren't in them field with you didn't come on the boats with you but sure. I'm sorry i'm done just wasn't supposed to be a monologue. But i've been holding onto this and i gotta say before i started crying because i'm sick. A y'all sorry at all because i wasn't gonna say shit because just talking about it makes me mad so i Yeah yeah like. I said before. People never fail to fail me. She was only sixteen. I was a kid many baby twenty eight-year-old your father like she won't clean her room. She's are you fucking kidding me Eighteen and also. Why are you calling adults to beat her up. When his first guy reported what they said was that she tried to stab that cop and because her family came out there that's why they had to change it. That's why they got. The body came out so quickly and typically they don't move that fast but y'all had oh no. Cc she was violent he didn't try to de escalate. This shit at all. Just fucking make me sick.

And i'm now it's if i'm shining means i made it but you also still trying to help other people shine your experiences whether good or bad is going to help somebody else move forwards and sometimes you're nothing more than just a point in the road. You are nothing more than a sign pointing of people in the right direction. You gotta be okay with that you. Not everybody's going to be a landmark. Sometimes you are the the marker the conduit sometimes you're the conduit to something better You have to be comfortable. Everybody can't be Over shawny 'cause everybody knew what you mean.

REINVENTING GENEROSITY

"It. This is where normal comes to die. Mediocrity meets its final demise and the status quo. Is unabashedly dismantled? Welcome to reinvention radio. Now, here's your host Steve ulcer a horrid, you open to initiate year of reinvention radio J hanging out with the lovely Mary, Julio, Mary, lay Riccione. What's up my brother? How you doing, sir? Great. How about you? All right. All right. Wait way, down the studio and Kelly's gathering control back at headquarters and super excited today to get back onto the reinvention radio wagon here and and sit down with a friend of mine. You've actually been in my house, you know, that Shanta you've actually you remember that you've actually been in my house. It's so funny. So Shanna centers hanging out with us today and you look amazing in your new house, by the way, we're, we're where is that? Beautiful home of yours Salona. Are you in Salona? In Cardiff, Cardiff rice. Yeah. Nice beautiful. So a custom home, you guys built that one you and ask built that one from scratch. Yes. And we actually bought an old broken down home in with a beautiful view and tore it all down and, and built our own house. Right. A couple blocks from you, probably an ensign Ito's a wonderful was very close. So, so Shanta, lots of amazing things going on for you. I mean you're, you're rise has been nothing short of stretch spirit to say the least. And so knowing, how busy you are, and everything that you've got going on. And by the way, you are well protected woman. Like I can't even get your phone number from ash. Your husband, like at your husband won't even give your your phone number. I'm like I gotta tech Shanta S. What's Jan does not like no response. The guy does have a phone because he yes, he doesn't think so. It's bad. My husband even as fears of people like coming by our house because we had a weird thing happened at events not too long ago where it was a scary situation. And my, my husband was just like seriously Chamdo like we have to get everything unlisted. So. Do so. Many of ants and were were online so much and we like were traffic is just off the charts right now. And, and it brings that next element that you're not ever expecting. And how old is your your little man right now? He just turned four just turned four. And so we filling that house with others. Or are we done? We are working on a baby. We got this big house down. Now we got to fill it with love and noise, right? That's, that's the plan. Awesome. All right. So look. Needless to say you're unreal mentioned radio. We cover a lot of ground. Not the least of which, of course, is how you have reinvented your life in your business to get to where you are now. It's not always been sunshine and flowers and roses and beautiful views now now. And it's and it's not now either. Like like even I feel like every gross, it's like a new reinvention. You know what I mean? Like it's like it. Yeah. It's just I was just coaching someone who said, you know, she she makes you know, she's going to eight hundred thousand dollars this year and, and she was she was asking to come into our coaching program in, and I just don't have any space and this level. Right. And so. But I was talking to her, and I just helped her anyway and she's worried about like growing our company too big and still being able to be among we, you know, in that fear and growth. And I said, do I said, you know up until about three to five million? I know that's a gap through to up to three to five million. Honestly, you still do. Don't need to have to really understand how to run a business. I mean you can you can you can really do that and not kill yourself, but out about the five million dollar, Mark, it starts to get really weird, and it's like you, you hired somebody that you thought was amazing. And then you find out there bi-polar, and they're putting on you in the middle of the Nabet jer you know, like just the weirdest things start to happen. And I even had a moment. The other day where, you know, we do a big zone event, every year, Steve coming up, it's coming up here in a few months. And by the way, I plan to the with Kelly Kelly, we, we both have Kelly's, and actually you have to Kelly's. So you're one up on me in terms of Kelly. But, but yeah, actually planted the c with with Kelly this morning about trying to figure out how to, to do some stage time there and maybe sponsor, your stage and all that stuff. So we'll perhaps we'll play their way, we can chat about it, but it's like at a moment where I literally sat in bed, and I cried for about sixty seconds. And then I looked at my husband. I said, I just like this isn't going to get anywhere. Like I just need to like put on my big girl, panties and. Go. And it's because we've got three to four events a month. We got. And this isn't me like this. Like I'm humbly saying this like it's like it's a good out of control but it's out of control growth. It's like careful what you pray for because it's like the door, they just keeps coming in, you know, it's crazy, so feel like I'm reinventing myself again, I, I will not give up being a mom, you know, at two forty five I stopped my day, and I pick up my son from school, and he sees my pearly whites many comes out of the school, and I'm there to grab them and hug, Goldman drive them home. And, but I started work at four o'clock this morning. You know, and so, but I and I could work till ten pm but I won't. So it's like I it's like the whole game is like how do I keep reinventing myself because everybody tells me that after work these crazy hours? I'm gonna tell you. I haven't had to do it yet. Right. But it's not without pressure. And letting things believe to, to that in, you guys have a ton of questions and we'll get to plenty of these as well. But so two thousand eighteen revenue de mind sharing with those numbers weren't what you're intimidating for twenty nine hundred generally speaking, so twenty nineteen we'll be at twenty eight million to eight twenty million time mazing channel congrats on that. Well crazy twenty million sales. So taking. Yeah, for. Sure. And what's your over your growth and where we add in twenty eighteen do you generally? I'm so not driven that way last year we did. We brought in the door six million. So we probably sold like eight and a half, meet none. So, yeah. It's, it's explosive growth. It's explosive and I'm just getting started. Right. So let let's take it back, though, a notch going back to some of the more difficult times. Have you have you always been wired as an entrepreneur, did you have family support where just take us back through some of the early entrepreneurial days or early job days? Yeah. So my dad is an entrepreneur. My mom was a furniture saleswoman that stayed in the same company for as long as I can remember, but I liked my dad's life better. Honestly. I think that's how I became an entrepreneur, like my dad, my mom are separated. They're good friends, but I go to my dad's house and you know, it was amazing dinners. We had we had like, you know, a driver and like a live in like cook. And just like it was just a different life you go. There you go. There you go. The mall on girls love to shop. Go the mall and my dad would buy like five pairs of the same running shoes because he knew he liked. He didn't wanna come back. You know what I mean? So I just liked that life. As in my first. Limousine with father in Los Angeles. And I remember being in the back of limousine and kind of pouting because I wanted to be back in Canada with my boyfriend and I was way too young to be dating. And I remember looking at my dad, and I said is on the other side of the limo. And I said, dad, you know, the world looks so much better from the inside of a limousine, and am I dad looked at me and goes, Honey? Never forget that. And it was an honest reflection that had nothing to do with money. It had everything to do with the freedom the and how beautiful the world looks when you sit inside of a beautiful car and a beautiful limousine like driving through even the most ghetto places in Los Angeles. Look better from the inside of a limousine, I think I started getting attracted to entrepreneurship there, and but, but the but I didn't really like nail it. Entrepeneurship what I grabbed onto was I liked the power. I liked the freedom. I liked being important in so. So I think everybody in their life like we all have a driver and significance tends to be a lot of our drivers. At least as entrepreneurs wanna get that we matter. We want to get that were significant that what we're working on, you know, it's I, I don't know, I've never been able to keep a team member because pay the more you know what I mean. Like it's they're unhappy. And they think it's money's gonna make them happier. I've given more money and it's like no, like unhappiness comes from deep within and also happiness comes from deep with it. So I chased that freedom in corporate America, and what I found was, I would even lie even work for one of the companies for six months for free and, and built a whole division that ended up being over one hundred million dollar divisions in less than two years. And again, I don't say that from bragging standpoint because I can't even tell you that I could do that, again, like it was a great brand that opened doors and they believed in me. And so I didn't know I was going to create something like that. But what I did find out is when I got to the top of that ladder. That real estate and that world like it, you know, a came with I was drinking too much. I was doing cocaine. I was, you know, I was just living a life, that wasn't me. I was up late. And I was still up early. And, and realize this is not my life that I want. And so that's when I started my coaching company after that. It's such a trip like the journey is a trip like I don't know. Don't look I feel like people just need to realize, like the pretty pictures that you see on Instagram, like I do content day for those you not. This is actually all I looked like all the time. I look like this, you know, like, and I think it's really easy. I even with talking to my frame, Randy guard and I don't know if you know him but I was talking around the gardens wife and in Hawaii, like last week and I was like, you know, what's weird is looking at this girl on Instagram and like she was perfect. And I was like, and I loved the way she dressed in, like gosh, she would love to dress like that all the time and to have lips like that. And to have like, you know, a body like that. And, and like I was talking to as doing around his wife and I was like, you know, what's crazy, like the truth is, I'm actually like a baseball cap leggings, sloppy shirt, type girl. And that's really who I am. But we look at these pictures and we think that that's what it looks. I think people look at entrepeneurship ago. Oh, it's like the, the jet and the world's rice, like it's, it's just not it's just not like half the people are renting the Rolls Royces not to say there's anything wrong with that, but renting them and putting them in their shots because they're trying to entice you to a lifestyle, which is why I even got into entrepreneurship. And let me tell you that lifestyle comes with a lot of pressure. It just does comes with a lot of pressure. And I love it. And I love it. Like a love it. It's funny because we're we just finished beyond eight figures and you qualify for both. Right. You'd literally could be on both shows. Are we going to have around beyond anything? I know there's a part of me that, like, do I ask beyond eight figures, questions, reinvention? So I just so I heard the story with dad in you see the vision and I'd love your honesty that you, you know, went into, like I don't even know if that was entrepreneurship that I locked onto as much as like the power wanted to be significant nights. So thank you for your honesty. Their first and foremost and, and. When you said. So we talk about them beyond their figures, I'm gonna kinda go between both these shows we talk about starting scaling and exiting, and you are. Obviously scaling right now. So and we covered a little bit of what got you started. But since this is reinvention radio on this actual show, and they tune in for reinvention, what made you say here I am this corporate. I did this and now I'm going to go into coaching like what, what was that jump? What was the start? Let's say so I wanna say that I am deepen scripture now and deeply believe in scripture. And before I believed in God, and I was deeply into shamans and things like that. And I actually went to sue shaman and had an experience with the shaman and thought I was going crazy. Like it was like I had a reoccurring thought inside my head. That was a voice. And I honestly thought that something was, like something was wrong with me, and that, that voice is what I really believe it was God based on so much that I've heard and read from people have had these experiences because it was a very echoey voice. It was very strong and for two and a half hours in my car kept telling telling me that I needed to teach financial freedom in real estate. I built this big division. I wasn't necessarily happy, but I liked. I liked parts of the job. You know, when people say, I love what I do I love parts of the job. And, and basically, this voice was leading me to coach, speak write books, and I was like, I'm not a speaker. I didn't even know speakers. I didn't know any of this was a real thing, like I never would have thought like today in this world we do. Podcasting. You know what I mean? Like, or that, like I just I just even like being an author was a fake job to me, you know, like it didn't feel like a real thing. Like I didn't aspire to be a motivational speaker when I grow up. Like that's not wasn't even my realm. So I was fighting with this voice saying, not a speaker. I don't want to, I don't I don't want to coach at I don't do any of this stuff. I just want to do what I'm doing, like, I'd, I'd just flying to London every two weeks, I was I had built over one hundred one hundred seventy million dollars in sales at that point on the books in about fourteen fifteen months. It was like I'm on something good. But I feel it you know what I mean? I was in alignment with it, but I should I knew I should have loved it kind of like growing up getting married and getting a house, and having kids like I should be happy, but it wasn't you know. And so, finally, because I kind of got freaked out. I just said, all right. My friend, Robert. And if he does this with me than all launch a program, but I never want to hear from you again, and the voice, just stop and I called Robert, like cut my word and Robert said, I would be happy to launch something with you. I've always thought you should be in the space and gave me twenty four hours scrape program. I sat on the ground, I meditated, I had crystals all around the I'd candles lit, it was like it was like something drop into my mind about what to teach. And then I launched my first program and had the aha moment of how much loved it. I saw this company truly started. Mary, do you wanna give us some background, like what was your first product? And then maybe your first program, I event, things like great. Yes. So now I am an event company on I'm a coaching and event company when I started I started with I six eight week program. I can't remember if it was six or eight weeks. It was held the art of receiving money is very confused about who I am, like my spiritual or my business. And so I just kind of merged them together and did somewhat of a personal development money. Course what I knew is that it's kind of like Tony Robbins Russell Brunson. And dean Graciosa just launched the, the whole knowledge blueprint thing that they did we are in a world that we get paid for our knowledge. We just are. Do you know what I mean? And so I kind of just somehow intuitively was like I could get paid for learning how to spot opportunities and getting myself to execute them. I didn't know that. Resilient that I was selling. But that's what I launched, and I sold, and I, I, I think I sold it for like something like, you know, three or four thousand dollars in like eight people said yes, on a conference call, and I was like crazy crazy. I didn't even don't even know these people. And and I just was hooked after that. And then when I was coaching them. No Maginness at the corner office in the corporate building. And I'm sitting in my car, you know, for hours coaching before I went in the building, because I just loved coaching Bebo coached them literally, if they booked me for private coaching like fifty bucks. And now like people, you know, spend anywhere upwards of fifty two over that to coach with me for four hours, you know, like fifty thousand so it's, it's such a trip, how this whole thing came about the events are insane. Talk about reinvention. I was afraid of public speaking. I mean back when I started if you guys asked me to even do a show like this, I would have told you. I was sick. Like I, I just I wouldn't have wanted to show up because God forbid, if I didn't say the right thing, or, or like it wasn't good enough. Then then, like, what would that say about me? So I avoid success like the plague and so, but people kept pushing me forward and people kept calling me forward, but I was afraid of public speaking, and now it's crazy. I just I always say entrepreneurship or reinvention, however, you wanna look at it like the next level of life business. Whatever has actually nothing to do with you. It's all it's all about generosity and giving. And when you realize like if your marriage isn't working, then what, what are you really not hearing? And what do you not giving? You know, if you're if you're like overweight, it's like okay like like you're not like, what are you not willing to do? You not really willing to give yourself the time to prepare the meals like or you're not willing to pay somebody to come in. There's always like some give that happens like has to do with a give. And so what I've found the secret to, to me, reinventing reinventing, remedy and unhooking from the pressure like super quickly, like my sixty second cry the other day. You know, it's like that's not me being tough like I I'm it's not me being tough. I'm not being tough. I hate this whole independent woman thing, like I don't like that. Like I actually liked to be hugged by my husband liked to rest into him. I like to be a girl, and I also get there's masculine follies of Dr. Having a point that are really important. Right. But he's reinventing points of always come in these moments realizing like, like, okay, it's all about me if I'm struggling it's all about me, like it's all self imposed. It's all self you know, consumed when I start thinking about me for a second. Think about like what would happen if I did this radio show. Like what, what could that do for someone? Like what could what could happen if I just got up on that stage and made an offer what like what could happen if I really took myself seriously, and, like got in the best shape of my life, like, what really could happen like maybe I live longer. Maybe I you know what have you get. What I'm saying like the unhook nece to reinvent. I believe the secret is generosity. I think it's the answer to everything. Just kind of going back a few steps to because I think I was at a Zona viewers and whenever you did at the hard rock in downtown San Diego. So maybe that's three or four years ago. Yeah. That's okay. Yeah, yeah. So few years, obviously more than a few years, then a go here. So at that event. I mean at that point, you had a pretty good sized crowd. It was a really impressive event. What were you offering at that point in terms of because you're, you're clearly a natural born leader? People are attracted to working with you. And I know your company hardcore business is really structured around, you know, helping entrepreneurs share their gifts and be able to monetize those gifts. So you had something I think called pace club back then that was that what it was called pace cross. Yeah. As private now. Okay. It's a program with private coaching in it, gut here here is so again. You guys I have to walk through being bored, with my program, not wanting to teach it anymore not wanting to do. And I've had to fight every desire like I would love to teach a bed, I do sixty plus events year. I love like I like watch the people. Teach you a bed like solo. Product would tickets to a get on the road dog and pony show? And I'm like I've done none of that to go five and a half months year. You know what I mean? Like I've done done of that, like I would love to teach that, but like again, entrepeneurship or just life really truly like you will get what you we heard. We've heard that saying, like give and you'll receive right? We don't really believe it because if people did, they would just go to the give all the time, and that would just be they're getting unstuck. But it's like I have just sold that program for basically we're going on the night. You're of our company. I have sold that program, I think it's either seven or eight years. And that's the main thing I talk about is that. Program everywhere, Ila, same problem, you know, seven eight years later, I still see the same problem. When I figured that I asked them, how many people have an audience or an Email list of five thousand ten thousand twenty thousand and nobody has it. It's like like a thousand people I just didn't event. I asked that to, you know, we do all these, like, two three hundred person events. Do two or three of those a month. And you lied all those who do you have a team that leads those I lead to a month and I've somebody else, leave the third one about me though. But I'm I go on at eight thirty I start at nine and I'm done at four thirty. If I went into an office. That's what I would do. You know what I mean? So it's all built around, like a quality life list. That's one of the questions you run through. You started going through some of the things that you ask them. So I asked him if they have an Email list in the last group of, I think it was like one hundred and fifty the last one, and, and literally there were two people in the room that had an Email list of five thousand there was, nobody that has illicit them thousand I see this everywhere. So just because I talked to preneurs ship. I'm like I wouldn't start with cold traffic. I wouldn't start with trying to become an online influencers because I don't own that traffic. So we go into that. But it's like it's like I just, I just tell the same thing because I still see the same problem in the marketplace, people are not bad stupid. They're not that, like they just have put their, their resources in the wrong order. Let's go into that. If you don't mind because I'd love to know then what it is that you are teaching your people. There's, there's so many coaches out there who you know, frankly, are, are really good at what they do, but they just can't seem to to get results for their students. You, you seem to get really great results for your students, which is I mean obviously a testament to, to you and your leadership abilities, but also had then reflects in the growth that you're seeing year over year with with, you know, with hardcore so, so what is it that you're actually doing then with these, they come to this event, and then they, they sign up for pace, or one of those what are you taking them through? Can I preface it with this really doesn't matter? What I'm teaching even though I'll tell you, you know, obviously, that'd be great, but it's not if, if someone's gonna learn from this piece, it's not really what I'm teaching what's important. Is that you influence one like one thing for many, many years. Like whatever thing that you see is, the is the foundational problem of whoever your ideal client is. Whatever the foundational problem is like I don't even it's like people with weight loss. Like I, I don't want to teach weight loss and so much bigger than weight loss. And like her if you don't want teach weight loss like you, you've mastered that piece. So teach it, you know, teach it teach other people at a teach it, you know, and build a company around that. And then people will you create wealth by people sending up. So what's one site? So once I make my offer for my online. Thank on my foundational program pays private then sixty percent of them like a send up to marketing mastery, and they and they stayed there like that's the wealth chain because there's no there's no customer acquisition at that point. And it's just cost of the expense of delivering that program. Smell inside the company. But, but if you pick one thing, and whatever it is that you've mastered, whatever knowledge, you've mastered, and you just to see for the rest of my life as long as this is relevant. I will teach people if they keep coming, I will teach people how to do this piece, and then you'll see you just ask them. What's that next thing that they want, and they all want, like a similar thing, and that becomes the big promise that the next offer, and I just focused on that for many, many years now? I have a speakers division and I have a leadership division. But that's because people's leadership they kept needing me for their leadership, like it's like the woman with their child or children, and she's nervous to Grover company. I'm like, that's a leadership thing, the way, I'd take off five and a half months, a year is not time management. It's actually a leadership training. I keep building my leadership. Young. Not totally makes sense. Reggie sure. Just like a million things. But it sounds like 'cause there's two main things I wanted to kind of go into it sounds like part of what you're just saying is you solve your own problems. So you saw your own problems. You were leaving this old job. And then you solve your problem. But you had no list you had you had to start somewhere. So, so questioned one, we'll be what exactly was that, when you had no start because I'm gonna give you a little bit of hard time. You obviously had cold traffic some point in time, not now. But. But just that cold, traffic and last two years. Sweet. That's awesome. So I want to hear more about that. That's super cool. And then secondarily, though is kind of on the faith slash reinvention. How much do you think this is you reinventing yourself? Or since you're diving more into faith, is it more? You uncovering yourself. That's a really good question. So I said to my husband the other day that we just get we were in Carmel. And you know, we went to why we came back with the went to personnel. We built an a two day event around one of my friend's birthdays. And then we treated our friends to an incredible like few days in Colonel, and, and I said, you know, at any point, all of this can be gone, because at the end of the day, like I just feel so blessed that I get to live the life that I get to live right now, and I'm really present to that. That's not just a good story. Like I literally was saying, that's my husband, the other day, like we are so lucky that we get to live like this, and we get to do something we love like that is, as just a blessing. But I feel like this is like, like. I can recreate the structures of what I've done, but I have listened to the calling on my life. And this is probably why I know and why I anchor this in so many people that chose to be an entrepreneur, we've a bunch of new entrepreneurs coming online, because like not only do we most likely have a recession coming into play. I could just say we do have a reset most people know this. It's coming in right now, but we also we also are moving into an era that, like peop- like I'm have more clients. Now that are talking about Botts and, you know, they're like I mean, even our sales process is streamlined. A lot with Botts and things like that, and then they moved to real people. So it's like you know, lots of jobs are going away. So I think there's people that are gonna come online that if you heard me four years ago, I was like you, you're either born, an entrepreneur, you're not right now. I believe that there's going to be a new entrepreneur that's one that just replaces their job. So, so, but what I will say is anybody who chooses to be an entrepreneur other than possibly the new. Ones that come on board, which I don't know a lot about yet because we haven't lived this area. Entrepreneurship traditionally has nothing to do with us and everybody wants this huge success, but you can't like you can't get there by saying, I'm bored, or I don't feel passionate about what I'm doing anymore because it has nothing to do with you. You know what I mean? Like it's, it's, it's like, would you have somebody on your like an employee that said, you know what I'm just a little, I'm just a little bored. With running this marketing department. Now, I'm a little bored with it's like I'd be like, oh shit. Time for me to look for somebody else like, but then these people like think that it's okay to just like somehow it's okay to just recreate another product service because they feel inspired and do it. And you see the best marketers out there. I mean I'm not going to say them, but, like I just saw two men partner together and they're popping out another program, and they're like, we're partners. Now, we're and I'm like, come on, guys like who's going to take a real. Stand for like alternate grow leads people are cashing in on people's like investments, and then they're reinvesting them and they're making lots of money. But, like what about the good old days where you buy a product and you stay with the company long-term because love it like I think Sara Blakely has got that down with space, right? Like I'm wearing a pair of spanked leggings. You know what I mean? Like, and I love them, you know, like a love them. They're like so my point is, is like, maybe I was never a pro- like a buyer of some of her other products but I love these leggings. And I've told everybody about them like what about like that? Like what about real business? You know what I mean? Like real business. And so, yeah. So the answer that the I'm sorry, I kind of tangent on that. But I have a role like wake up everybody. You know, like yet. So I have a calling on my life. And everybody does. And I don't believe I read scripture almost every day. And I go to church on Sundays, and I hate the spiritual conversation, sangam spiritual, not religious. And like, will you are religion because you're saying that it's all segregation. And I just feel like I, I don't know. I just feel like God is God and, and we all have the same create or make her whatever you wanna call it. And if you listen, if you listen to pull, and you walk through your fears you're going to be pleasantly happy, you're going to be taking care of now. That doesn't mean that you don't have looked like I've had foreclosures in my background. You know, when I started this company, I let go of three properties when the market crashed on the kept going down down down, and I made a move and decided to let go of them and live in one of my properties, for like, ten months mortgage free. But I chose to believe that this was part of the plan, you know, like this is the opportunity here. Is that the typically many people's biggest nuts when they're growing anything? In life is your mortgage, and don't have these. I don't have these mortgages anymore. And so for ten months, I'm living free. So I better figure out how to do this, you know, like little things like that. And then so that was the answer to that question. It's like. Do you have another question with that? Like, no, no. I mean you kind of you answered it. And you kind of answered it by merging the two. So. No. I got it. Thanks, so. Yeah. Married, did you because I know you're on the religious side of things, and then there's a spirituality side, and how it relates to business. And just I'm. I'm I'm sensing that that's like resonating pretty pretty deeply. So I've done the whole, I'm spiritual and try different churches and whatnot. But I'm okay cradle born Catholic. So I've definitely come back to my Catholic faith, which is extremely spiritual and extremely rich, and people labeled it a religion. So that's fine. But I definitely live in the divinity of our my faith, not the humanity because we're all human all centers, we're all going to make mistakes. We're all gonna fall on our face so just focus on the spiritual part of it. The richness the scripture, I read every day as well so. Yeah, yeah, well, even like even that piece like, you know, like, like we're all sinners like a lot of people can't hear that because they don't understand it. But it's like the, the piece that unhooked shoe from feeling bad about that is like forgiveness. Like I imagine, like I'd another client that just crossed seven figures, and, and then I noticed she was pulling back, and I've been watching her lose ground, and I was like I want name, but it's like you know, let's call her Tracy I was like, Tracy like what's going on? And there was like some shame in her life. She made a decision that put her on the hook for co-signing for somebody, and it was a bad move, and it was a bad move. And she feels shameful about it. I'm like, like forgiveness, like you know what I mean? Like it's just it's you know, I've found in scripture and in, like studying God's word that there's a lot of peace that if you understand the it's kind of, like, you know, somebody you can be in a circle, and you say something you whisper to somebody by the time it gets around to the other end, it's completely different story. That's my experience of people's relationship with God. You know, it'd be like they don't actually get into the word and really studied the entire word. I mean, even in scripture, it says, like the church is one of the most attrition is one of the biggest centres all depending on whose leading it was, like, that's the humanity part of it. Exactly. And we'll have that humanity in us, and I totally agree with the forgiveness part because we, we definitely should out ourselves. And we, we do not live up to what he put in to be nothing. We certainly do not so Bravo on your work. So, so let me ask you. There's been obviously twenty nineteen shaping up to be an amazing year. I mean, more events more people talking to Kelly on your team. I mean you gather hoping to get sixteen eighteen hundred people at the next event hoping you will get sixteen hundred eighteen hundred people. Yes. We don't actually operate like that. We always over exceed our number's always in. So let me just ask you this because on the surface. Right. I mean, again, you look at you gorgeous girl beautiful house, beautiful family. You know the businesses crank in. What, what scares the hell out of you, though? I mean, what, what, what are you still struggling with what, what keeps you up at night, so to speak? So you know what really scares me is growing the company and the culture ever changing. Like, I, I love the culture of hardcore, and I know that at some point, we'll have a CEO running this company and I'm already ready to take that hat off. You know what I mean? And so I wanna make sure you know, I just scares me that, that changes because I care about our team members inside of heart floor. So as we're helping entrepreneurs become wealthy and enrich really and, and have strong leadership qualities to be able to responsibly transform not only their lives, but the people that they're working with, as we do that work in people, you know, I wanna make sure that internally our team gets wealthy to, and so, like, you know, my advisor many of like our ad so we do gross revenue sharing inside my company. Every porter anybody's been with the company for a year. It gets gross revenue sharing every quarter, and like I still feel like I can do better. So now I'm like, they have this extra money coming in every quarter for like some of them, it's like they. Just added a significant amount of money to, you know, I mean, if they get, you know, five thousand dollars a quarter or seven thousand dollars a quarter or three thousand dollars report, or whatever it ends up being for that quarter. It adds up over the year. And so, and they're not getting advised on how to use that not. I know it's their responsibility to do that. But like this is why generosity is so important like I actually stay up at night and think, well, I'm not ready to do an east sop with the company employee owned company. I'm just not there yet. I like I'm working, I'm working on my own trust factors and all of that, I'm just not there yet. But but and I'm not going to do it just for taxes. Like it's that's not like that's a perk. But that's not why I would do it. You know what I mean? And so, so we're going to bring our advisers in two. Now coach our team. And these are like, really expensive acid attorneys advisors tack consult, you know what I mean like feel and it saves me six. Thousand dollars in my taxes, like my team doesn't have access to that, nor does it make sense for them to for many of them made my executive team, but many of them to invest in that, and so I bring them in to help them like know what to do with that money based on their goals. So it scares me to lose my teams into the abyss of an ever-growing company where they don't Bill love taking care of, and I wouldn't want to be sitting on their side of the computer their side of the desk. And like see somebody pop up. It happens all the time, like I work part time in two hundred fifty dollars and they're like, what? Let me ask you this because part of, I think the struggle for many folks, like like you, like me, like, you know, the Brennaman shards of the world, those sort of folks, who have these for lack of a better term expert or guru, led type businesses would I become very clear on in the last. Lines, not so in to lend. So let's talk about that. Because I know what I've become very clear on, is, especially in, over the last three months is that the business that I have been building over the last nine years is, is certainly sustainable. It's, it's certainly scalable. But it's not necessarily salable because of the reliance on that leader being me to take the stage or to do the podcast or to do the events, or to create the courses, etc. Etc. So you were structure as I think you were just about to say is, is different, and then you're thinking about it, perhaps from an exit perspectives. We can you talk about what you're thinking about as it relates to an exit, and then how you are structuring your business. So that is scalable sustainable, as well as salable. So once I got into Inc. As one of the fastest growing companies, I started getting calls from people that wanted to invest in venture capital, not Tempus stuff. And I haven't entertained any of them and, and I have the guy that does everybody else's, you know what I mean? Like Brendan's bell. So it's like it's not like I it's not right there and super tempting, but the truth is, is it's actually not my vision to sell the company. And so we are actually building up the company and had been, I aimed it heart for business, not Shantou Sumpter, because it's never been my heart to be the guru just like I don't, I don't need to run this company like I would like to do my role that I do really well and a great coach immigrate leader. I can get almost anybody through whatever it is. They're facing so that they can fully optimize their life find that next year. You know what I mean, like, and there's a huge value to that. And I feel lit up when I do that. I'm also great strategist, but. It's like the hats keep coming off as the company grows. And so, but what I would like to do is, I would I would like to I, I guess, everybody, well, maybe not I, I feel like the calling on this company is a billion dollar company. I have no desire to grow a billion dollar company. I am very comfortable. I like it's I'm good. Do you know what I mean? And honestly, this company is just getting started. Like we now know every funnel that we need to this point. We, we have essentially plans, we like we're good to go. You know what I mean? And so it's just getting started where opening up Australia, we're going to Australia for month in mar in March, Greg from wrong here. But I mean you are still doing the videos you are still only but I don't lead most of the masterminds. I don't lead out of the sixty plus events year. I'm now leading the two the two two of the coach yourself to success groups a month. I love it. That's enough. I would do no matter what a love that. I so but out of those events I mean. Other than the coaches off to success events that I do I only lead to client events. A year zone newly bet when of course, and on event to client to client events year, the zone events, two days, the Zona bed. And now I'm starting to do these two day events that I started halfway through last year. So I guess what I'm when I'm also trying to find out if you were coaching someone who was starting from scratch and building a business that revolves around some sort of, of leader. How would you coach them to structure that so that it was scalable, sustainable? And saleable of someone is starting from scratch knowing what, you know, now, probably you would do may, maybe you wouldn't. But maybe you would do some things different, I honestly wouldn't stay, because like even our speakers division is not around me. I don't teach any of that. Our leadership division is like one hundred percent not me. Speakers divisions, one hundred percent at me and pace private is one hundred percent not me other than their today mastermind the end. And marketing mastery I go because I'm actually learning the same stuff they're learning. You know, it means I'm actually a participant in the audience with them. And of course, I feel like a celebrity to them, but I might say something for maybe half an hour, but I don't have to be there and I'm learning from them, I'm like, I'm learning from the people that we have training and the trainers. So I have developed a trainer based company and the trainers are interchangeable, and I am a trainer within the company, but, but I, but I'm like, almost out of. I actually I really am out of training other than the two day pace mastermind like, I'm gonna go to graduation of our leadership program tonight. I wasn't there. I just have some friends doing it. So want to be there for graduation. You know, like, yeah, I was just gonna maybe close the gap teeny bit on where where I think you were going with that Steve is. So you mentioned you only got into cold traffic the last two years. So what, what was that first step in? How did you first get started because you didn't have money for a team? Or maybe you did. Because sounds like you built. Now. I didn't really what was that, first starting stepping off in the reinvention. And how was it just calling your Rolodex, and telling people you're gonna start coaching because there wasn't cold? How'd you do it? I a friend of mine started mailing their database for me, and he would mail, like every, like two months for me and helped me get like my program sold out, and then his dad would help me with some of the tech stuff on the back and I'd hand like three hundred bucks a month. And sometimes it was like he would just do it for free to help because he so believed in me, and that, I mean, then what I realized is in real estate, what had negro so significantly as leverage other people. Gene, malysz. And so what I realized I didn't know like like an online summit or, you know, basically a podcast that instead of it being opened people mail, it goes through not debates to here. The interviews. I didn't know that was a real thing I just created it. And then I found out, it was a thing. So like that, that, like we created our own version of how to do that. Our own generator. Emails are like everything was created out of nothing only because I knew that I was dead in the water fighting control. My traffic. And so that's what so when I started doing that to sell my product that nobody got any results from because I didn't know what I was doing. Thank god. I managed my mind and walk through that step. But then I started teaching other people how to do what I did that printed, the freedom, only because it gets seen when I would talk to anybody nobody had lists. You know. So it's like everybody's like twelve steps ahead of the list there. It's like when I did an infomercial. I went and met with my friend Gingras. EEOC and I said, I gotta figure out like this. Like, do I go with this call center this call centers like shout? You don't think about a call center because you don't even need a call center importation, not successful is like everybody's like creating their products or services. They're talking signature, talk and all the sudden, like nobody's going to see. It is really hard to go out and look for the audience, I would like to control the audience that I could message at any time. Super smart, and you've built up. I mean, obviously a specific specifics, if you don't want to, but you build up a pretty good social media following you built up a obviously a salad Email list, what other channels do you use in terms of platforms that, that you control. Are there other channels? Events are events, you know, we are events are incredible. So we, you know, we, we completely train our information products in total like for free, so instead of having to invest fifteen hundred or three thousand for information products, you could still do that. You see if were at an event in your neighborhood, you can come for completely free, and people walk out with the entire information product completed and workshop doubt like they've done it. Do you know what I mean? And so during those workshops, we, we people always come to us like on day, one people are asking us to hire us like in our coaching zone, and our coaching zone, a strict strict orders to not make offers to just help get people clear we serve, I then we tell them if you want to hear how to work with us. We're gonna make an offering that room. So we stay respectful and people who want to make an offer. They come to another room with us. And then I'll show them like all actually do. Full-blown pitch. And, and I tell them, I'm pitching, you watch it. You know what I mean? Like, watch what I do. I tell them what I do and they're adults and they can make a decision, if they feel like they would like to continue to coach with us, and get all the things that we offer, then they can come into our ecosystem. And, and you walk the talk. I mean I, I know you invest also into other mentors and coaches, and so on matter of fact, I have never been a part of her program, but I think you and I first met at a Suzanne Evans event. Yeah. With repairs and just kind of hanging out. I think that's where we actually I met, many, many years ago. So as you've invested in some of these other types of coaches over the years. What what do you take the most pride in terms of doing differently? I'm sure you've learned from all of them and, and ways to do things ways not to do things, what you like, what you don't like structure that system, etc. But what, what do you consider to be the biggest? Differentiator between you then and some of the others even some of those that you've learned from over these years, what it would have you. How would you summarize that? Honestly, I think that I chose coaches that were much like me in different areas like I coached with dean, as well last year invested one hundred thousand dollars to two like coach with him Suzanne, like, you know, I- Suzanne's very misunderstood in the marketplace. She's a very generous giving human being. And some people think that she's not because she's so straightforward. So it's like I don't know. I think. What they all did for me, as they all, like saw me and believed that I could and what none of them did for me was put their models on top of me and have me become them. And so I just I do everything different from them. I mean I really do like Suzanne taught me how how to do avent's, but, like I don't do anything like her. You know what I mean? Like not even like she's much more of a hustler than me, and I might add that her, like, I admire her hustle. The only reason why I haven't gone for a New York Times bestseller yet is because of my like that hustle. And I and I work hard, you know what I mean? But like that's full is insane. So I have to really build myself up to, and I worked, my husband would like if he was downing your he'd say, you guys don't let her kid you. She hustles you know, but, but, like Suzanne is a much better hustler than you know what I mean. Like she will show show work through twelve cries. You know what I mean? Keep going, you know you just won't. She's just relentless. You know, I'm resilient but I'm not relentless. What do you mean? You have to know your you have to know your character and work in the areas of your character that worked for you. You know, like not try and be somebody else. So I would burn myself out when she's like I've been on the roads for, like basically a month and a half or two months, and Mike. I like no way like no way. And here today I do many more events than she does today. And that's not a competition. I'm just it just shows you how if I would have done it, her way, I would I would have given up on a bet. Right. But that's because she's drunk than I am in that way, you know. So I do it my way, and I do many, many more events than she does. And then most people in the coaching market. Somebody told me sixty plus events you must be exhausted. Like, do you really think I lead all those no win? Just get a too few minutes left here. But let, let me just ask you this question. I mean, obviously, you invest one hundred K with somebody like dean, what, what was your biggest takeaway out of that was it was it worth one hundred K is it just a proximity thing to develop the relationship? I'm just curious. Like what, what, what do you get out of one hundred K? Yeah. So I think people underestimate the power of relationships and so I did pay the hundred thousand dollars just to develop the relationship with dean and how this is what I was already doing. And what I realized is like the way he operates is like so it's so genuine and it's so neat. So I gained more confidence against I like way ahead of me in years, like we are so similar in the way that we speak in market in, you know what I mean. Like it's like it, he kid, I built my whole last zone events around dean showing up and making it easy for being in his backyard. And of course, he showed up and sure he would've showed up. Anywhere because that's just the type of guy he is in, but I did that to honor him, and then told him while he was on the stage and I've seen them used that in, like multiple different launches. And I just loved that I got to be a part of, like you know giving back to him. And you know, when I screwed up my clothes, I totally screwed up my clothes at that event. And then I went, I told everybody I screwed up my clothes and made a repair and forty percent of the room said yes, to working with this know and it's a much bigger room than when you saw it. Right. And so, you know, demons like that is insane. Like, you know, and, and, and it's cool when you have somebody of that, caliber, and that experience, look at you and say that. So it's like I don't know. They just I just picked, good coaches and they, they believe in the people they coach and they're not all about the money. They're actually about us. We'll let me give you an opportunity here to share then in his last sixty seconds where should people go to find out more information? What would we want people to do is? As the, the world of Shanez concerned at the moment. Well, without a doubt, if you wanna four extra company and see what I've done from inception of idea to where it's at now.

"My Name is Sarah Attorney and you might have heard of my sister lists story before the best bits but I promise never heard it like this on voices for Justice and going to dive deep into a case like never before. I'm going to interview people. You've never heard from 'em going to expose more about the police my family and myself than ever before. I'm asking you to acknowledge that he wasn't the case that you're not going to do and I understand but he was. He said that he was aware that the Renault sexual allegations which is completely crazy to me. Because there's over twenty five people in your documents that Alexis so when he says that I don't know what he's talking I've held back a lot for a long time and I'm ready to release it on my own. Terms lease told me that my best chances media exposure I've been working for years to amplify my voice through others but now I'm ready to make some noise subscribe to voices for Justice. Today on I tunes and most podcast players sets tried something and told them very graphic very me and what there were lots. Whatever you'd like to say I'm not going to go round and round. It's all email was public record unhappy happy with that. This podcast may contain content. That is graphic and disturbing nature listener. Discretion is advised in a story of teenage relationships and rivalry. The jealousy of one teenager would become the impetus for a shocking crime. That involved. Not One or two but four murderers and one innocent twelve year old girl. This is a case that will have all asking if there is such a thing as redemption. This is episode. Seventeen the Chande Scherer Story Hi Amy I'm Megan. Welcome back good to see you. Good to see you too. Have you heard of Chande Sharon before I have not but it's quite the tongue twister? Name I now I worry about my pronunciation as well. This is a somewhat older case and I have to say that this isn't one where I'm coming in going. I'm really excited about this one. This one was probably the hardest case I've covered yet and I mean hardest in terms of the facts of the case and Hardest not just for women crime or direct appeal but hardest. I've ever covered in my career. Wow I can say that. I'm not excited to cover it. But I think it raises really important questions about rehabilitation and redemption and what our feelings are on that and the justice system so that is something that I would like us to dig into and that is something that I hope the listeners will think about as we go through the story and you hear all the facts and the subsequent sentencing and punishment think about the justice system. Chande Cher was born on June. Sixth nineteen seventy nine and after her parents. Jackie dot and Steven share divorced. She moved to Louisville with her mother and her stepfather. But this marriage would also ends and after this marriage ended. Chande and her family moved to New Albany Indiana when they moved their Chande. I attended Hazelwood Middle School but shortly after she transferred to a Catholic school but what happened before she had transferred schools. Shannon became involved with another girl. Her name was Amanda Heaven and this was right before she went onto the Catholic school and Heaven who was two years older than Chande. At the time so Chande was twelve. Heaven was fourteen had just ended a relationship or with seemingly ending a relationship with another teenage girl and that was sixteen year. Old Melinda loveless you say relationship you mean romantic relationship or I do okay I do. I mean romantic relationships so Melinda loveless was furious when Chadha and Amanda attended a school dance together and she began writing threatening letters to Shanta telling other people that she was going to hurt Chande. And this is actually. The reason the impetus of why Shannon's mom transferred her schools so quickly after their move but it was the relationship between these three girls that fueled an incredibly tragic event early in the morning of January Eleventh Nineteen Ninety. Ninety-two Melinda loveless and three of her friends. Lord Chande out of her home and into their car. I want to give listeners. And you a little bit of caution here. These details are very difficult to listen to. So just please keep that in mind. Loveless had been saying that she was going to kill Shanta for her involvement with Amanda Heaven. And now it seemed that she might actually carry out her plan to keep in mind that these are going to give you the ages of everyone going forward but these are teenage girls and this is Shannon. Who's a twelve year old girl? The girls in this situation which there were four of them. They tortured chanted to death. Most of this taking place on an old logging road near one of the assailants homes and mostly the two ringleaders in this crime and the two ringleaders are Melinda loveless and Laurie Tackett. And I will introduce you to Laurie. Tackett shortly over the course of something like eight to ten hours. They beat Chanda at first. They began beating her. They choked her. They stabbed her. They sodomized her They tried to slit her throat. But the knife was too dull and that wasn't even close to the end of what they did to Shanta. The girls put her in the trunk of their car and went to Laurie. Tackett HOUSE WAS. She still alive at this. She was so when they were inside. It's house they could hear. Chande still alive in the car crying out for help crying out in the trunk and so they took a kitchen knife and stabbed her several more times. And then Tackett and loveless took Shanta in the trunk and began driving around so there were two other girls involved. They're not in the car at this time but they've gone back they've Stab Chande. Chande is bleeding. She's dying in the car in the trunk of this car when you say that. They lured her to the car. Did she know these girls that she willingly went? Did they promise her something had they get? Yeah so they actually said that they were you know. Friends of Amanda. Amanda wanted to see her and so Chande being twelve year old girl was so excited about seeing Amanda who she really liked. Yeah that she went with them realizing at this point. That Chande still wasn't dead. Melinda loveless took a tire iron and hit her over the head who've and there was a lot of blood that came from this down the face but Chande still survived. Believe it or not I know. This is the part that so bothersome and so they hit her several more times with the tire iron and it was also offered Jesse know forensically. That tire iron was also used to sodomize. Chande at some point would not admit to this kind of activity but when Chanda was still alive though when she was barely alive she was beaten and bleeding. She was gurgling blood. Her is distorted. Her body slumped over on a desolate road. Where the girls had taken. Chande cried out her last words for her mom but the girls in response to that cry out when she was dying poured gasoline on. Chande and set her on fire. Burning her alive. Wow it's one of the most brutal accounts for me like I said this was difficult because this is the we cover brutal crimes And several of them were brutal. But this is the most personality I've ever seen and especially out of younger so keep that in mind. Gender and age are going to become very important here are so. Let's get into the investigation. Shadows body was found by two hunters later that morning naked and and burned the worst burns. Were from the waist up and police were called into this horrifying scene. And I read that. They've never seen anything like this before. Meanwhile a very shaken Toni Lawrence. This is one of the four girls that I haven't mentioned. Almost immediately confessed to her parents that she had seen a murder. And Laurence the Laurence is took her to the police station. Now I read something that they also Hope rip the other four or the fourth girl was also kind of on the verge of confessing as well or may have confessed as well but her parents wanted to see a lawyer before they went to the police station so Tony Lawrence and her family to the police. Where Hope Ripley and her family. I believe seek counsel I. The police quickly secured arrest warrants for all the girls based on the information that Tony Lawrence gave them based on a missing persons report. This SHENDA's family had filed and autopsy revealed the extent of torture. There was severe rectal bleeding. And that's why theorized that she was sodomized She had soot in her lungs which indicates for people who didn't know that she lived during the burning. She was alive for that there. Was you know the extent of the stab wounds? The choke wounds the beatings. It was all revealed in this autopsy after the autopsy. What emerged was that? The instigator of this Crime Melinda loveless age sixteen seem to have a particularly bad childhood having reportedly been sexually abused by her father for years along their other siblings. So I did a lot of research on what the extent was and how serious this was. And there were a number of reports that describe a very volatile open relationship between Melinda's parents and an abusive in many different ways Larry loveless which by the way just think. The name is here right because it's loveless abused and raped his wife in front of his children several times and he was eventually charged with several different charges actually assault rape but after he spent two years in prison. The charges against him were dropped because the statute of limitations had expired so they couldn't even technically try him He was no longer eligible but he was charged the year after his daughter was. I think this was a response to his daughter committing the crime and all these reports that came out about having law enforcement. I think rightfully so probably felt like they had to do something so what happened was that he wound up being in jail for about two years but then he was released all right. So that's Melinda loveless. Laurie Tackett who was the second main accomplice. She grew up in a very strict religious household and seemed to be rebelling against her parents taking to shaving her head wearing black claiming ties to the occult. I saw some reports. Also that child welfare services had visitor home a few times but I couldn't verify this to the extent that I could verify Melinda loveless his background. So take that at face value. She was aged seventeen at the time of the crime and she again was probably the second leader in this murder. So far we have loveless and we have Tackett aged sixteen and seventeen the other two girls hope Ricky and Tony Lawrence Age fifteen at the time when along with this violence. But what's really surprising about this? Amy Is that they were friends with Laurie. Tackett but they didn't know Melinda loveless and they didn't know Chande Scherer at all and so these girls still participate in this crime. They lured Shantou out telling her that Amanda wanted to see her and not knowing her or loveless so we already have to question. Why would they become involved. There were fifteen and they're older friend. Was she sixteen or seventeen. So Laurie Tackett was her friend and she was seventeen so the older friend. Two years doesn't seem like a lot but when you're fifteen seventeen year old is someone you admire it. Sure is and she's a strong personality and I'm not sure. To what extent hoping will you'll hear a little bit more about hope and Tony when I get to them but Lawrence and Ricky. These were the two younger girls. The ones that are just covered. They were charged with murder arson assault and other offenses while love. Listen tack it. We're also tried with these offenses plus additional felony murder charges and child molestation charges despite their ages. All four girls were waived into criminal court. But they wouldn't stay there for too long as all four girls would eventually take plea deals so waiver are transfer laws apply to juvenile courts and they vary from state to state. But what happens is there are certain conditions under which juvenile's under the age of eighteen can be waived or transferred into criminal courts to be tried as adults in some states. Are I'M GONNA say most states are going to do it by the serious nature of the crime so because of the serious nature and the heinous nature of this crime they were all to be tried as adults immediately. Other states have prosecutors. That can decide judges who can decide but the the usual way to do that is based on crime. So now I'm going to tell you about their plea bargains. Because they all took plea bargains. I won't go into talk about their sentences. What sentence they actually served and I'd like you and the listeners. To really think about the role gender and age played in their real time sentences and whether you think this was fair whether this justice whether you agree with these punishments the first to take a plea was Tony Lawrence and if you call Tony Lawrence was the one who confessed immediately. And she was the one who said she witnessed a murder so what the authorities determined was that. Tony Lawrence didn't have much of a role. She drove the car But she did not participate in any of the actual assault on Shanta which again does not make her innocence still culpable to some degree. Tony Lawrence cooperated. She gave all the information and she did this. In exchange for a twenty year sentence in two thousand after serving nine years of her twenty sentence and after earning a college education imprison. She was released so twenty years but she actually served nine. And this is kind of the difference when you have pro boards and when you don't so parole boards or able to lessen the sentence and let you out early whereas in some cases or some states for certain crimes if you get twenty years you have to serve at least seventeen or at least eighty five percent of your sentence by the way Tony Lawrence later said that she was absolutely just terrified so she said that she only went along with even staying with them or driving the car because she was totally afraid that Melinda and Laurie would kill her if she was only fifteen she was fifteen and I can't say whether or not that's true or not but if you have two girls who are turning violently on another one and they're willing to start committing these acts you might be afraid well did. She claim that she didn't know that this was the plan she did. Yes so both girls both Tony and hope kind of thought that they were going to rough this girl up and teach her a lesson for messing with Melinda girl and did. The two older girls corroborate that. Do we know to some degree? They do corroborated but they also would somewhat say that they really didn't expect to murder Chande. I know they would describe things getting out of Control. Spiraling out of control the anger the emotions. Yes they plan to definitely do things that were worse but I think the two younger girls definitely thought this was going to be like you know throwing someone a beating as a lesson. Not that that's excusable. But certainly they didn't think murder is going to happen. Hope Hokey took a plea also. It took her a little bit longer though. She received a sixty year sentence. Sixty sixty with ten years suspended for Mitigating Circumstances. So that would be fifty years okay. Her sentence was later reduced to thirty five years and after serving fourteen years. She was paroled in two thousand six rookie participated a lot more than Tony Lawrence. Having held Chande down at times and she assisted in other ways. So one of the things that I didn't say that hope really did admit to doing with spraying. Shanta with windex cleaner In her eyes and when she was burning but also rookie is the one who poured the gasoline on channel. Okay now rookies account of that. Is that Laurie? Tackett told her to do it like she said. Said Poor you she said no and tack. It said do it now. I can't corroborate that or not. Rookie was a little bit more impressionable. I have to believe that she did. Some of these things probably a little bit more at the behest of leader than on her own. I don't think she would've taken her own initiative here so it makes sense that she served a bit longer than the first girl so okay so far. This is making sense. Yeah so for. The order is making sense but you have to keep in mind that these again. She got out after serving fourteen years and she went in when she was about seventeen so she got she got out about thirty or thirty one a whole life ahead her whole life in front of her. Okay let's talk about Tackett. Laurie Tackett took a plea and also received sixty years in prison and was released in two thousand eighteen after serving twenty five years in prison now. She gave an apologetic interview. It was aired on. Dr Phil It was several years later. She was speaking with a crime show crime reporter and she spoke directly to Shan does mother and she talked about the regret that she had in causing her mother. This much pain and she also said though. She wished that she didn't do it. She wished that she would have stopped. The situation spiraled out of control and that she didn't intend to murder Chande but she should have stopped and she should have known better and she don't know she didn't know how it got so out of. Control Shantha's mothers response was interesting because she said that. Tackett it said in an earlier hearing there are several hearings. There's a sentencing hearing. She said that Tackett had said something like she always knew. It was her destiny to murder someone and spent her life in prison at one of these hearings tack it strikes me as someone who had a desire to really hurt someone in licked pain on someone and tack. It also describes on this by the way this Dr Phil episode that I watched and encourage people if they can get it to go ahead and watch it because it's with shadows mother. Shanta sister and I'll tell you hope comes on the show and they play some Tackett so Laurie Tackett also described what a person who murders another person like the reason why and she describes wanting to inflict pain on someone wanting to see their fear. She wasn't exactly she wasn't supposed to be describing herself. But afterwards Shannon does mother and sister kind of said she's describing ourselves and I think that's probably more of her motivation for this as well issue remorseful. Truly it's hard to know. I watched the interview and I mean you know. She seems somewhat remorseful after several years in prison. But I don't know the extent of that remorse hope Also went on the show and she was directly on the show. She was out of prison and she was confronted by Chande sister and her mother hope cement on the show. Very very remorseful. She said that she was rehabilitated. And she said that she was so sorry for being a weaker person. At that time I mentioned his mother and sister had no sympathy for whatsoever and of course they wouldn't but Jena's mother also said that she didn't believe it took a weak person said another person on fire which was an interesting point. Because if you think about the you know comparison here like I did it because I was weekend because they told me to do it. But you're still doing something. That is a really really brutal act on another person no matter what. She apologized extensively. And the only thing. Shannon's mom said is you know the only thing I ever wanted from you girls was that you serve your time so if you really. If you're really remorseful you really felt bad. You wouldn't have petitioned so hard to get should serve more time right. That's a that's a tough one but we could understand jammed question but of course you know you're going to petition for parole when you're in prison right. Amanda Heaven was also on the show now. Amanda Heaven was the center. She was the girl that ignited controversy. She was the one with whom Melinda loveless had the relationship and then Shanta had relations. She wasn't part of that crew that she was not part of the crew that committed the crime however heaven on the Dr Phil. Show admitted that Melinda called her after and told her about the crime came by showed her the bloody clothes and again said that they killed Chande showing her evidence and Amanda. Heaven didn't tell anyone so the his mother and sister were very angry with Amanda Heparin. So they said you know she didn't tell anyone. Why didn't she call the police? Why didn't you do and Heaven said well? I wasn't sure if it was a story or if it was the truth at the time and you know I had told people ahead of time when I knew Melinda was threatening her chand I told people I told a youth prosecutor told as parents or I told other people which is why Shannon was transferred school so I did do things ahead of time but it is point. I didn't tell anyone on. She also discussed the impact that this has had on her life and how and his parents you know. Kinda came after her a little bit too but she was not charged with anything right. Nothing the thing about heaven is that she was very seemingly unsympathetic to Shannon's family. She talked about you. Know Dr Phil. Like e seem a little callous. Are you seem a little unsympathetic? And she's like well this impacted my life to you know I mean. They took me off the basketball team at the time and she was just. She spoke like a child but she wasn't a child anymore. Because this happened. The doctor Philby was something like she would have been at the time. I enter thirties whether or not she should have been charged with a crime. I'm not sure they did tell her after and she didn't I do actually think she should have been charged. Maybe withholding evidence or accomplice after the fact she didn't report it and I think she had an absolute duty to yeah. I don't know how she feels. But I don't know why she doesn't feel more responsible. Shannon's parents filed a civil suit Justino shortly after the sentencing because they had heard rumors that the girls were talking to a movie. Production Company about their stories and her family didn't care about making any money but they just wanted to see the shutdown. Indiana law already prohibits making money off of your felony. So there were no movie deals to follow so now. Let's get Melinda loveless. I'm on edge of my seat. Melinda. Loveless was paroled in two thousand nineteen after serving twenty six. Not New Jersey Right. Not In New Jersey. Okay Indiana so. She was paroled in two thousand. Nineteen after serving twenty six years in prison so she was the last and she came right after. Laurie Tackett but something pretty amazing happened while Melinda was serving her time at the Indiana women's prison so she became one of the best dog trainers in the can program. I'm sure you've heard of it is there. The ICON is Indiana Canine Assistance Network program. So we know a little bit about The puppies behind our puppies in prison programs. And from what I know they actually have some real strong success in helping to rehabilitate offenders. And give them real skills. So here's the all right so the incredible part is not that she came a trainer but she did become a trainer and I watched an interview with someone in the prison and they said she's absolutely hands down the best. The incredible part is that Shannon's mother donated angel a puppy in Chambas honor for Melinda to train specifically. Why well I can tell you that. Shannon's mother at I was very unforgiving as you would be and she had said you know if you WanNa see something basically lifeless look at Melinda. Loveless is but she said that after learning about loveless partaking in this program and doing so well and the reports that she thought you know what she should do a donation in. Santa's honor so that Melinda do something to honor Chande and she would have to do it all the time in remembrance of her and doing something positive because this was now something positive that she was very big of the family to do it was very big of Shenda's mother and Chambas mother. What she said was that she was happy to see a positive change Melendez life. She said that she never wants contact with any of the four girls. She doesn't feel the need after you know. She did the and confronted them. She doesn't feel the need to buddy up with any of them but she was glad to see that there was something in Melinda's life that was honest and true and that there was some type of rehabilitation in the ends loveless was pearled. Now I am at the end of the story and I want to get to the part where we talk about our opinion. So do you WANNA go first? Amy Sure I think so. Heinous the crime was really hard to listen to. But I truly believe that except for you know the worst of the worst I think twenty five years should be a max and especially since these girls. They were girls when this happened. And it sounds like you mentioned them going to school or doing the training program. They all do. They all did educational things in prison. I mean they all. They all did something productive with their time in prison. Sounds like they're remorseful. It's unforgivable what they did but I also have worked with offenders who have done worse and I honestly think they're wonderful people so I do think people are redeemable. I'm okay with the fact that they're out okay. And the sentences for the younger girls. Did you feel like we're the sentence is appropriate? You Think Yeah. It's really hard fifteen's really young fifteen. Also you have to think what was going on in these girls life. That made them. You know that enabled them to commit such a heinous act there clearly victims in some way as well. I'm not saying they didn't. They don't deserve to be punished for what they did. But I do think it's important to recognize that something has to be going on whether it be environmentally or biologically for fifteen sixteen seventeen year old girls to commit such a heinous acts. Yeah I read it so I didn't report too much on Hopi and Tony Lawrence their backgrounds. Because I read really mixed things. Some people said that all the girls had some challenging childhoods where other report said that Tony Lawrence and hope he had pretty normal childhood so because they were conflicting. DidN'T WANNA speak about that. It does seem like Tackett and loveless loveless in particular. There's no way to dispute that. Her childhood was horrendous. And so we don't excuse it but we we can explain it at least chronologically as well too. We can understand so this is a very difficult case for me. The perpetrators were very young and we have to account for the lack of their mental emotional and intellectual development and we know so much more now the court the courts no more scientifically we know brains aren't developed twenty five but this was also so savage and so depraved. That on the flipside. I wonder if these girls are so savage at this age would they then develop into even more brutal types later so it makes me. What if you're if you have signs of this type of antisocial behavior this young what will happen later on? Well the hope is that in prison. They received services. Maybe fave received the attention that they needed. I don't know what kind of mental health programming they got in prison. But I would hope that. They received some sort of services that they wouldn't have otherwise received. You know that kind of alters the trajectory of where they were going but yeah we can definitely hope for that So for the girl sentences for Tony Lawrence. I thought that was an appropriate sentence. I don't think hope preppy served enough time for me. To be honest. Fourteen years wasn't enough. She poured gasoline on her she. She did some extremely vicious things and I think she should have served more time than that to be honest. I'm not sure how much more but more what about the ringleaders. So that's where I struggle the most. Obviously Tackett and loveless were two of them. Were like this perfect storm to now. Had They not come together? Would they have committed crimes against other people? I do think yes. So here's why twenty five or twenty six years. It seems appropriate. But here's my concern. They both get out in their early forties. We know that offenders age out of crime and we know that people start declining with crime with forties. But they're still young enough so for me I'M GONNA save at No. I would have liked them to serve. I would like to see them. Get Out in their fifties because I do believe it fifties. They are probably not much of a risk to commit more crime. I do believe they've aged out more getting out. I saw them their pictures when they got out in the forties. They looked like young women to be still and I still have substantial concerns about their behavior but also if you think about it the strains that are going to face as those essentially grew up in prison whether you're forty or fifty coming out you're going to experience the same strains trying to get a job and everything else that they may end up back in prison simply because they can't survive on the outside because they don't know how the world works. They have obviously a felony record. And who knows what kind of support they have so they might be doomed anyway right. We don't know much about them. I will say that. I hope for society I really hope for everyone that they are rehabilitated. In that these four women realized the severity of what they did. I hope that they live with it. And that they think about it but that they're able to productively move on with their lives and do something good. I also think if I'm assuming that there weren't many infractions or island infractions while they were incarcerated so that helps lend itself to the idea that perhaps they are more towards rehabilitated. Than not the best we can do right now is really really root for them and rehabilitation and that's for us and the rest of society. Thanks Megan thank you.

Arthur and last amateur stand up comedian in party clown. That walking in phoenix played in job of said it before. I'll say it again. That was another one of those times in my life. Where i was one hundred percent sure i was right. When you said incorrect or when you hit the buzzer. I was like you're dumb. Dealing awesome wrong. arthur flick is not necessarily the jokers. Name it's non canonical isn't there wasn't Zan jack nicholson's joker named jack. I think so. I almost had it on the air. But i thought that. It's nicholson dome ethnic. No but i thought his. I thought the jokers name in batman eighty nine. Was jack something. Jack napier yes. I would never use a nephew their flak in comics. I don't know no. I mean 'cause that's the comics are the the cannon that is what the story is in it and according to Was this entertainment weekly or whatever. It is not the canonical interesting.

Meese ling in the board game but now for the next four weeks that basically leads us right up to christmas time. yeah So it's not going to happen. I hear this possibility.

I'm the scouring your camera. Chris in the in the studio looking for it in the background. I haven't done assuming that you were hiding. I want people to forget about it and then just happened What's the best pizza in maple grove. Man i love shanta clear. Shanta coors great good news pizzas. That's elite chanted. Great though is vegas going to happen if it does what we still be to go to be. Dobson have full speedups closed. Not i'm kidding. I honestly when it's awesome to vegas a couple of weeks ago. I hadn't really thought of that angle to me. That's that's the that's the problem. I think vegas power vegas march. Twenty twenty one will happen but being capable of doing a live broadcast and a two hundred or three hundred people. A closed restaurant. I think is very unlikely. How many shows do we usually do three nights to right because we normally go wednesday morning. This show thursday and friday so that might be the only thing that changes is. We may not do live shows which is a weird thing to have a power trip. Show go on the road cavs right. Have you come with us to see the show. And then we don't do two shows. I don't know how that would work but again if let's say the vaccine starts rolling out in january and by the end of march were two months into waves of vaccines. That might be possible. I mean right. If if we're on a good pace distributed here then i really believe. I think we'll be okay. I think it'll happen. I really do mark. What if like you know the nfl was going to do that. Stage in the bellagio. Yeah and have everything outside. What if we shut down drag strip for it and we just go from the right found. Yes love it. S from the shore send. I'll send him an email and see what they think about it. The mall of america ever get back to you about my coaster they're dodging they're dodging the question man. They're they're too scared they fair question. It's it's it's fair. It's a very fair question but because i'm not for unfair question. Do you have any of them over there Yeah the planet hollywood event room instead be that would be cool if we do need bigger place. But oh yeah yeah. That's where like britney plays in that kind of thing would be way less fun. That's why we switched to beat up in the first place. Instead of just sitting in staring at us people could order food. People could have rank could definitely do it in a ballroom and socially distanced people if the virus is still a problem at the end of march. It's definitely less fun doing it that way. But that is a backup option. That is definitely not ideal though right mayor. Sorry i know. I'm old man. I don't know can't old to some day. I swear to god. I'll be dead by them but i'm gonna rub it in fact glad you will rub it in the grave. Masturbation jokin keep voting won't be like hawk is rolling over in his grave.

But i pulled off a brilliant move and some people in chat probably did this to so tastes them hill. Because he's such a weird position has typically been slotted as a tight end on. Espn fantasy football but this week because drew brees got hurt. They gave him dual position ability for a quarterback tight end so needing to win to get to the playoffs in the next couple of weeks. I picked up some hill to start in my tight end spot and he was named the starting quarterback so now i get to play two quarterbacks this week how bad it gene how bad it who stays i use. Espn fantasy football in there. It's down. Oh i'm sure people are i would god. I should've fucking done it. And they can't they can't change it because they started at the beginning the week and gave him that position label. But yeah if you can go pick up taste hill and espn fantasy. Go do it. Shot himself Bill gardner would like your take on last week's episode of fargo corey. I don't know what everybody else azan. But i loved it. I just thought it was super unique super different. I don't totally understand why they did what they did yet. Maybe we'll see that in the last two episodes but i thought it was terrific. I love the wizard of oz. Amodu that was super smart. I gotta get caught up. I thought it was super super so the season season before this is what season for three. Yeah i don't know if not. I got to figure out who was in three three mcgregor mcgregor where he played both finished that one. That was very because you mary. Elizabeth winstead shows button. she's gonna three great sorta slab. Aj guy de out of my office. I don't wanna leave it because this is the nice stuff. And i don't want people take it for me. He's like guerrilla relatives. The best uses for the cables tape down in the studio do all the is that what that's called off the brand well. I don't think. I always want to usually say hey for thanksgiving time to polish What's his name iliad. Todd fuck fucked it up content that there really is when we go deep on fantasy football and this podcast that fox somebody has. She's seriously you can you. Can you can track the of people who are adding players. It'll say like up sixty percent. Whatever i guarantee you. He's rockets so in the future but next week. It'll go back next week. He'll go back to either quarterback tight end so this is like a one week situation where they they weren't sure because sean payton hadn't named a starter so they had to give him dual position leaks. Is your italy menu play. I'm in one league right now. Are you trying. I'm trying you haven't talked about it since week. One started four and six. And i find it to be extremely boring when people talk about their fantasy football just kidding months ago. I'm really not very good at it. But i did score thirty two points last night. Congratulations i oh i. Because i have that quarterback. He's been the for my team this year. That kid is unbelievable. Yeah he didn't and he didn't have a great game. I know my his standards last week. Daddy saved my week last year. He runs in halftime. He's second in rushing touchdowns to dalvin cook. Yeah that's crazy. That is cray cray. There was before last night. His numbers are better than lamar jackson's when he will year that lamar a unanimous envy pray and almost no one's talking about an mvp candidate that's all good. His numbers are hey zach. How old is mark rosen Sixty nine how old will he be in may sixty nine her. Why does sauce drive. Pass three or possibly four targets to go to the no would target settlement sentimental reasons. There's a set of mental reasons. He decided that you know to say that. Like twenty feet away from a microphone and now and now we're stuck in talking and now i can't go back to that one because he's wanted. He's on the lam because he paid for an item and walked right out of the store with painful price and why they write down in the ladies like nice. If you you know you could just probably cut it off with a pair of scissors. I tried that once with one of the things they put on clothing. That doesn't work load. Have you got some snow. Pants sucked up a whole nicer. We did the drive out of you and the the and we got him home they had. The thing is still going to go back lot chris.

Chad mentioned the meets us workout video yesterday. Yeah yeah did you post. I tweeted it out again. And i went back and watched it. When's the last time you watch that video. Oh my gosh. It is so freaking. Funny i i watched it and i laughed out loud through the entire thing and i noticed that half the video. The camera is shaking. Because in real time. When i was laughing trying to not and greenway was a freaking beast. I don't remember. I just remember thinking. Those guys are both machine. Oh my gosh. Even though i thought. I remember thinking that i would have done better than sauce but like two percent better than i would have been absolutely in ass kicked mode as well in dragon ass right there on that rope shit around f batman well as a heavy levers obese. Right levers a strong guy in great shape. Yeah greenway was getting those things up a good foot higher than lever was even when he was a stupid question but he was still playing. She was was that his last year. This is an offseason. Play was doing personal last year. Under reported how weird. How weird is it. Though that that greenway grew up idolizing. Ben leave right and then is no shouted but you know greenway had a better career than ban lieber right so you got you grow up worshiping a guy or idolising a guy then your instant friends with them and then not only are. You equals a lot of ways. You st- career-wise surpass what your idol did not weird. Yeah what a weird dynamic to like. We want to be ben so badly then your best friends with them and then you go on technically have a better career ben in an awesome careers. Obviously but greenaway's you know by the way do green is going to be ring of honor at some point. Oh yeah for charlotte. As soon as he he retired as a viking. That's a big always played is a what trying to compare you and sauce to greenway and your budget. Is that what you're doing. yeah year whispering. My name was whispering. In what way you and and saucer-like greenway and lever. Well i grew up idolizing him. Yep and now. I'm all your friends. And now he flips my tits everyday.

So to be really clear today's coffee Chande, you really should have a pen and paper. So that you can write down things that I share with you today. So if you are new to coffee, Shannon, note that every six on Monday to Friday example, standard I'd hichiara nyc Christina, and we usually have about one hundred two hundred forty people live and then throughout the day. We have tons of people who watch copy Shantou, there's someone that you feel should hear this somebody who's struggling in business or frustrated in business where someone you believe in that you think could really take it to the next level. The plea show this same coffee with Shanta with that. I'm a big big. Big believer in looking up and helping people win with you. So sometimes the biggest breakthroughs e you can have your ingrowing businesses actually being the type of person that not just helps you when they ask for. But actually, look something helps people when they don't ask for it. When you just know that you could help them to make a difference without a saying that says your network is your network, and I've been saying it for years at if I can look back to the big levers by business that have moved by business vast is it's always because I need somebody great that I was able to make a difference for in in the byproduct of that is when you ever backtrack. So many times I talked to somebody the reason why they charge enough or they're afraid of the sales conversation or they're not speaking on sieges, yet often comes down to a worthiness question or a worthiness battle that they have inside like not show that I'm worth they or but enough which is another variation of worthiness. And so the way that you over come that vastest is to be so useful to people around you that when you put your head down on your pillow at night time, you realize while I really am were the because I'm the type of person who helps people on a regular basis. It is the quickest worthiness. Dial. So talk about something called your big dials. If you've got a worthiness conversation. It's the quickest thing to turn up your worthiness conversation is to look out and see who can help today. What are the things I'm doing that are causing to have success in my life? And how do I share that with people or who I know can help this person succeed, even better? And by the way, it doesn't have to be just a struggling person could be I mean, I I have many many wildly successful friends of my life. And I am constantly looking up to see. How can I move that? Dial in their life to help them be more successful or have more happiness more free time in their life. So no that you can still help people who are wildly more successful than you. And you can also people who are struggling worse than you, regardless. Just become that type of person. I promise you the worthiness issues that you battle with around charging more around. You know, stretching yourself into a challenge that feels crazy for you to go after if you want those things to amp up turn up that dial gonna promise you help people succeed around to put your focus there. So talking about the one thing that translate that I've seen transform entrepreneurs from zero to millions and how you can do it to write this down those really three things that identified that. I think will help you think I know help you because of coached over three thousand people as end growing rapidly, and I can tell you who's going to be successful. Does not right off the bat based on these three dates? So the first thing is to become obsessed obsessed write this down too. Obsessed with one thing in your business, so often offi let fail love coach. Like, I coach a lot of coaches because I am a coach should happen to be people want the model that I have which is I get to work from home. I am going to be up in office. But I get to work from home. And I think the last week of every month I've been doing that for like over three years. I just sat mastermind and people were talking about, you know, taking time off and I took off five and a half months last year and still Mike groomed company quantum leaps. And so when sharing with you, I actually do and what I can tell you is you have to become obsessed about one thing. I'll see a relationship coach that I will help grow them, you know, whether making half a million eight hundred thousand a year, and by the way, that's not an income claim just sharing just some real numbers of somebody digging my head, and then all of a sudden people's are coming up to them saying, I really wanna. We know how to make that type of money while you're doing it. Can you teach in that might be another coach relationship coach in the middle o- Shanta, ding, ding, ding, ding. I can see I can make some money over here as the open up once called into the vertical, which is basically another division inside their company just to take those people to teach them business yet. They're not a business coach their relationship coach as I share this with you. Because if you just chase the money what you're gonna find is even though the money might be there. I find it. I'm Maryam spiritual. And I read the bible, and I'm I'm very scripture base. Not religious that varies absorb ace and structure will talk about something the enemy or whatever you wanna call that. And it's in my opinion, the enemies way of distracting your mind a little bit to the right? So that you miss your big jackpot. And so, you know, I have a couple coaches that are doing that where their industry unique abilities right here. But then they can see a way to make money. And they'll jump over here and start taking that money and they'll do. Okay. And it's very tempting it's very tantalizing. But yet, I know they are behind closed doors, and they're, you know, either not making offers in the right place in their business or they still are doing everything themselves. They don't hover chill systens, and they're still by the way, you can still make half-million hundred thousand dollars a year not have virtual system not saints. Good idea, but it can happen. Right. And so as the back end of the day on the back into their clearly not is this coaches, but they're taking that this on because it's not because it they can make some money on it. So watch the temptation of chasing money because chasing money, you could be in a fulltime job. And you're calling your heart is calling you over here to create a mentorship programs or to create a home schooling system, or to, you know, become a stay at home. Mom. Is a job, right? You your heart could be calling you over here. But like you're holding onto the money as watched that temptation 'cause in scripture that would be the enemy is trying to pull you off cores because if you go down the course being called to you're gonna have this huge explosion of faint, abundance and growth. And so look at that become really obsessed with one thing let me take it into Barbara tactical place. If you are saying you have to hire. So right now, I've been on a big hiring frenzy of last year and a half inside of heart hardcore, and so I've had a master hiring and get comfortable hiring and get over the hiring is the hardest thing ever said for about six months to years. I'm visits. Like, harry's. The hardest thing ever going to finding people to replace you to continue to grow the business. And now, I'm not in that conversation. I have new light. Because I've stayed obsessed with getting good at hiring. So this could be also with webinars in. Doing the same. Webinars for a year and a half a year and a half and some months when I changed new tweet to that Lebanon. I'll do a four or five times over five weeks or over three weeks. I might two or five times over three leads. But traditionally I'll do it once a week until I feel like I've mastered that piece and then I'll let that webinar role. So look at your look at your life to look in your business and be like how many things are you one offi? Right. Your like again, China webinars. I did. Okay. Let me just let that go. And let it go into evergreen, which means is playing without you. And nothing happens. It doesn't produce anything. But you just kinda pretend like it's not their new did that what next distracting to go after to figure out a master. Don't do that, you know that one little thing. I talk about this instead to that one little thing of mastering can really quantum leap your business. So that you're not so frustrated, right? So eleven are can bring in you know, twenty. Thirty one hundred thousand dollars a week if you mastered it a week, if you mastered it how many times since you've been taught how to do it. Have you actually practiced it and on the same thing over and over and over again still being frustrated but did not working? Okay. Let me see what's not working. If I look at the attending his are. They staying right to the end. Okay. They're sting writes the end. Okay. So maybe I'm over teaching and the confused. Let me ask some questions on my next Lebanon are to get the chat roll rolling in your chat role is like a survey and look at the chapel and see what's going on. I watched to chat role. Once I was doing a webinar the same Lebanon are for envision soft in their client base and watch the chop as and I had all these questions about who this who like how this model can help all these different industries, those one main industry, which was that remarketing, and I was shocked. I was like. Never ever thought people would ever ask that question. So my next webinar to one thing, and I shared a network, marketing example of how my model actually helped one of our clients get twenty seven reps in you know, one week from one webinar our model helter twenty seven reps in that. Sure beats like like home meetings, you know, and then, you know, Alexandria match. If you did that webinar for Esther's, right? And so it's like there's these little disease little things that if you optimize them. You would actually get a huge result. It would move the lever on your business. You don't have to work so hard the internet is a leverage online marketing is a leverage place, and the things that you learn if you if you obsess about mastering them, you're gonna find that your lover goes, and you can move into millions will the quickly the second thing that talked about is known is going to do it for yourself. This is that lever thing I talked to. To this guy at my mastermind, and he's really good at moving. The big dials in the big dials. Are you to ask yourself this question? What is the one thing? If you take step number one obsessing about one thing if you obsessed about one thing and your business right now. What would be that one thing? That would turn the big lever. Now, it might not be what you think. So for many of my clients. It's actually hiring a salesperson hiring somebody who can go that out either set up a sale so can either be Alex like a bird dog for you in some way, or it could be someone to go five people to watch webinar that you create so that you could be the person if you've got legal reasons for real estate rate for raising capital might be like you create the webinar training, and you have somebody urge ocuple the send that too. So we're Doug as a real estate term for coach consultant in might be what one of. Your clients is so amazing that you could actually teach them how to sell and so that would be a big dial. So I have a client right now who Creena who made more money this quarter than she made all of last year, and she did two things she hired me and the one percent club. So she hired a be like doing VIP day with me. And so she put she put her vestment on the line, which doesn't hold you accountable. And then Secondly, she high I taught her how to actually hire a couple of salespeople lectuing of being from our community. And so we have tons of entrepreneurs Arkady or powerhouses, and so she she moved those two big dials, right? Like, I be a hundred thousand dollars a year for my mentorship. And that was honestly, I get way less coaching. I mean, I've been trying to get a hold of my coach, by the way. I'm not kidding you for over a Ma. Month and having got may answer. And so it's not about me being smooth fed is that big dial of that vestment like VIP day or something like that to be the big dial that get you motivated when I could stop myself from being on my phone I hired Craig from perfect formula them twenty thousand dollars for VIP day. I'm telling you phone is in the box. It was in the oxides night. It was in that box almost all day yesterday. It's in the box. So that I can actually be with family and be a great mom, otherwise, I'm guilty. I'm not have enough willpower to not to stay off base book Instagram. I'm just I don't have a will enough power to do that. And so with that being sense to the beating myself up. So you're a bad mom. You are a bad entrepreneur. I can't believe that you can't stay off. You're going to be present at put the super phone box. So that I'm powerfully putting systems around my life. So that I invest in my future investment. As of moment. So look at what are the big dials in your business? Is it learning a webinar and mastering it the Bill came with it might take you one month one week or might you year and a half to master that webinar don't compare yourself to anybody else because who the F cares? All that matters. Is it turns that big dial and trust me bul becoming to asking you. How are you doing it? You're like really I just stopped doing all the other things that I was doing. So look at first of all step number one is obsess about one thing. Step number, two, taken accession and put it towards a big dial inside your business. A really big dial the third on my talk to you about which is all of this stuff is around one focus, which is Howdy focused on this to be able to turn it up. I'm breaking down the focuses of one thing that entrepreneurs to do to go from zero to a million. I'm not kidding. You don't have to have a ton of talent to do this. You do have to think like this though the. Third thing is is that you need to optimize what's in your space. So remember about step number one? Which is what like learn how to obsess about one thing, which means you have to turn everything else off. Then the second thing is gonna put that focus one big dial. So that I can leverage in turn it up my visit. So that dial. Dasa from bay dro- seems like I'm just really good at focussing on the dial. He doesn't he doesn't operate. Facebook. Doesn't check in boxes. He's not all over Facebook comments. Do any of that stuff? Because he's looking at the what he doesn't sign checks. He also doesn't go unfixed. He shared something with me a few months ago where you at and fix something in the house for his wife, and then he had somebody else. Take a client of his that ended up could've been like a huge sale and they lost the sale because he was fixing something for his wife, so pay attention to the handyman to do those things for you. Or ladies hiring somebody to help, Danny. And I'm not saying outsource your child or parenting saying helps us have some help. Nanny has somebody help you on the house to do your laundry? You know, stop doing those things even if you can't afford them telling you, you will miss turning the big dial. And so therefore, you will struggle forever. The third thing is in the focus is you need to optimize your gate. So I went to a mastermind just recently, my master ride and on a sleep at going to be really honest of it wasn't not the best mastermind of into this route the only one out of all of that in two years that honestly I was like why my heater have you ever been those in those moments? Like, why am I here? Like, we talked not one bit about business really for two days. And I've got just in about from our betas in Barbados for two weeks, you know, as home for two and a half days, and then I flew out to buy mastermind, and but you can't sit in that moment. So the minute I noticed by self that conversation. I said to myself really like why am I here? Okay. We'll maybe here to to help people. They don't have a breakthrough. And that's like I go to I go to is what I started this six coffee Chande with is the quickest way to increase. It's your worthiness because sometimes you can't see a strategy because you don't feel like you're worthy of the strategy. Or they'll be people come to help me grow a business a layout the planet like nothing. I'm ready for that. I might yet. You are you've been praying for this for a long time. Stop blocking the success. The not becomes fear of success. And I I believe your success is greater that veer failure because fear fear of failure. You can see fewer for success. You can't see it's really hard to see because you've convinced yourself peg. You're not ready. You've convinced yourself that you don't have enough. And so you've convinced yourself to control your growth, and that is the biggest facade bullshit story that convinces us to hold back from creating millions. And so he tried to control and push ourselves into success. But the way to do it is to actually let go. Oh, which means that in this moment. There are people who study with me. Don't watch coffee was Chande if you're in our community, and you watch coffee was Shamba, you get to seriously go wake some people up and say you need to start watching coffee was Shamba. Even if it's not at six AM, you're watching the replay. You know, ask somebody like teen to even message you the replay Monday through Friday, whatever it is estimated remind you get a buddy to help you, you know, stay accountable and debrief the coffees shipped at, but I give some incredible content that is valuable content that I will give to my private clients that you could use to move those big dials in optimize your thinking. And so us what in your face to optimize? If you belong to a mastermind, even if it's not my mastermind, and you're not showing up to the calls because you are not you're not shooting the masterminds. You can't you can't expect these huge freighters. And so when I guarantee your. His working really hard. What you're working on your missing the leverage points. You don't know of these lovers points are gonna come together. And so you've got to put yourself in the arena of success as so the first in that we liked to do a were avoiding success is we get really really busy. So the biggest challenges for success to come in is busy energy. And so I really recommend you. The breath. The breath into your day. If you're too busy to meditate you too busy. If you're too busy to work out you too busy. If you're too busy to shut your mastermind trainings. You're definitely too busy. Which means that you my darling or sir are facing a fear of success. If that's happening in your stayce successes trying to bust through and you're preventing it from coming through. And so I invite you to look at these three things, and I'll just repeat that for you. And if you're just joining coffee Chande, go back up religion to it to stop this replay. If you're on Instagram, you can find us on hardcore business dot com or you can find us on hardcore business on Facebook and advisory piled life the beginning. But the go back and now this little went into this coffee with Shanta take a piece of paper and say, what is the one thing that if I focused on it obsessed about it. And optima. By thinking that I could move this. Big dial inside of my business. What would that be is it you need to hire a virtual system is it you need higher? Nandy? Is it you need to start working out? Is it that you need to figure out how to do a webinar is it you need higher sales person is that you need to hire somebody who can find sales for you is it that you need to build a bigger Email list is that you need to figure out signature talk. What is it isn't that you need to hire a mentor is that you need to invest more. What is it for you? And then obsessive that so those three things come together as one made thing that transforms entrepreneurs from zero to millions, and I've coached over three thousand people at this point. And that's basically my last year's number of three thousand I know of coach many more this point. I just have reacted them up point is is that you can do this. You can do this. I promise you you can do this. You just have to change the way that you think all right with that being said, if there's anything I can do please feel free to send me a private inbox message have patients with me a not an asshole because they don't get back to two seconds. I will get back to you at sometimes it takes a few days because of our inboxes that come through. But if I can help you semi private buses, please go ahead and do that. And otherwise use these three steps to focus on this one main thing to optimize yourself to a million dollars. It's amazing. How generous you can be at seven big. Here's it's amazing. How your vision starts to get bigger after seven figures for you start to look at multiples of Vigors, eight acres at the end of the day, your life matters, and the more people that you can help in your life. The more money you can make just tells me how many believe actually helped. So let's optimize. Our our lives up to our ability to help our people and just use marketing to create a movement in your life. Alright I'll talk to soon SU too long running unsuccessful coffee with she. Bye.

And how big big dreams for their life to create something amazing is the art of just not ruining your life in the essence of your goals and your ambition and your careers or building your empires. There is this balance. that happens between balance. isn't the love balanced dallas. Because i think it gives a fake. I think it gives a persona a game like it's supposed to be in harmony and the truth is is that things are not in harmony very often in our life and that there are moments like maybe where you take a trip to maui and it feels very amazing and in harmony. And then there's times that you're building your business or maybe have some big dreams and ambitions or your closing a gap in your life and you feel lopsided but something that's become very very Apparently there's been a problem forever by what's been really really apparent right now as the clubhouse app is out you've got facebook instagram. And you've got you know Talk in action hiring tiktok coach right now to help with tiktok. I think it's going to help you all the different platforms and as as house were building these platforms which by the way we rent and we don't own right so this is why i say. Watch where you put your time there. Is this real challenged. People are having around. How do they run their life. How did they run like their businesses their careers their goals through our missions without like ruining their life in the process so he wants to let you start. Let's run it so so we were just having a conversation behind closed doors that has stimulated us actually opening up this conversation. Which is the conversation of even clubhouse bright the conversation of pows so people are getting on clubhouse. It's great app like a monday undoing. A room at eleven. Am california time which is just for just for ladies guys around. how women are there pulled. Our time has pulled differently than men are time is pulled and the demands on our time. How do we still build seven-figure empires and sometimes some i've clients. They're doing seven figures in a weekend and so on behalf of the man i want to ask. How's that not relevant to men. It is honey but we just. We just did it okay. So here's a good example like this is driving me nuts. Because i'm like i'm being really honest with you so as you're asking that like me nuts because i find it distracting so you know this is the conversation i wanna have in front of the audience because i think a lot of times. We have this conversation like you're seeing pictures online. You're seeing videos online and you're like oh their life is so perfect and then you go back to your spouse's the people you're dating and you're like i can't look right. Sorry why can't it looked like that. And so and so you know. I just want to have this open. Honest conversation about this clubhouse. I think is a problem right now. It's a problem for a lot of people's boundaries and. I think that a lot of people are feeling the need. Excuse me. do you have to go good. Just easing okay. So am i. Computers lacking out for some reason it keeps like resetting. But i think people are. They don't they don't know how to deal with the boundaries boundaries. Is not something. I ever liked to talk about but the conversation of how do you babe about it because i come out the conversation. We had exactly mike right. So we're having this conversation behind closed doors and what's happening right now as you're getting distracted on joins people say selects the real conversation with you. Let's have the real so. The real conversation is the conversation that people are so the unclog house for hours and hours and hours instead of like creating time for their families or creating time fitness. And even though. We're doing a training on monday. Which we've planned for the last two and a half weeks where we're training female entrepreneurs how to create million dollar businesses on clubhouse on monday at eleven o'clock california time and that's you know that's that's going to roll but it's going to be done like a training but the is is that people are sitting on this app and they're not scheduling their life which i love what you guys are doing with a club house because you started something called the growth network where people can actually go and register and find out like what topics are being top talked about. Because here's what's crazy. You're jumping rooms. You've no idea who speaking you have. No idea if they have the real results. The byles are not always telling the full truth right. Like i was thinking about the figures age figures under. Yeah telling not telling the full truth and and and there's even more smoke and mirrors and the great thing. Is you hear them talk. You can usually sense it right but but like how many people right now just going to chat. How many people right now are finding that like something like clubhouses like sucking your time. You probably had a time issue before close. But it's gotten even more amplified like going the chat and share that with us it's gotten even more amplified right and your family if you're on an android. I'm sorry considered a blessing for now. Inserted a blessing. Because it's one less thing that you have to worry about right now but it's coming right and so and so you know let's talk about. Let's talk about the ditch behind it and let's talk about how you actually go about changing this. You had to realize what a great opportunity for me. I i am clubhouse addict. I ever clubhouse attic i i came into it with this idea of. Wow what a great platform i could serve. So many people existing clients. And i went to this conversation of i create a strategy on us and i got addicted to the strategy on clubhouse then i got addicted to the numbers clubhouse when i used to not think about. I don't even do posts on instagram. Here i am investing so much of my time and clubhouse so i think this is now as we're talking about. This is becoming real for me as i. This is now an addiction for people that may not be a video person or image person but they are audio people so like at one point before addicted to blogs doing blogs writing blogs reading blogs. I don't even know if it matters about finding that is an addiction. But you know why. It's an addiction and you android owners are going to know this soon right but just like have the conversation because his conversation is happening in different areas of our life and we need to talk about it so that you can't keep going on and having like banging your head against the wall eventually. You're gonna get a divorce if you don't spend time on your spouse silly you know you're going to gain too much weight and find it hard to take that weight off because you're not prioritizing yourself however this could be a moment a moment of realization that you're not alone and that you know every every human being has the tendency to want to be important and wants to be needed and cubs just an amplification of that need and so the reason why you feel addicted to it is because you get to make a difference for people right away but it also gives you the feedback of i'm important hundred percent hundred percent happens is like our sun. It set my our son. Well can i share really okay. So this morning. I just want to just this morning. I was thirty three minutes late to a coaching. Call with eight people and handled it really well though so i just wanted to just let that in for a second so it'd be like if you are a fireman and you are being called and you're thirty three minutes late to save somebody's life. That's that's really what it is and so there. There's any people counting on on me and i'm gonna leadership coach and here. I am being completed the opposition of that. I'm not leading my life. I'm being reactive at eight thirty three. Am as i jumped out of bed to be with eighty people and you know it's interesting. He was also up at five. Am because i was up i was up at one o'clock in the morning and He was up at five. Am and he said. I'm still tidying. Go to bed. And i said i just work out or something right now and it's five five thirty in the morning by the time you went back downstairs those like. There's not much time to sleep now at this point like get up and move today right and he's like no. I'm going to go to sleep. And so that's a great example when we press snooze on our life and notice the areas in your life that you press snooze on your life and you're like you know what i'm just gonna just gonna rest a little bit more. Don't get me wrong. rest is important. It's so important but like if you actually lean. Johnson did a podcast on napping and the circadian rhythm of your body. Napping is extraordinarily unhealthy right and so actually going to bed at the same time getting up at the same time or when you wake up to stay up it's actually much more healthier than to go to wake up and then go back to sleep right and napa you've been up and keep so i missed the call and what's interesting is i got the feedback from because that's what i shared with the with the group this morning it was crazy is the all were like. Thank you for sharing messages on enschede for like though. Yeah i mean. I'm human we have those moments and so what i wanted to share it. What's interesting zaki me. The feedback yesterday. Who is our son. Was arthur new five year old six. He said dad. You're always on your phone. And i am like. Oh no no. I'm not on my phone all the time like it was going through my head excuses. Then you gave me feedback last night and you give me feedback a couple of times last night and then some more times and then i didn't. I was listening to. And i heard it but clearly it didn't sink all the way in and this morning. I got a wakeup call in my life so just to see that all the feedback was happening. I'm like okay now. I have to have an interruption. I have to have a massive interruption. So and it really came down to is like okay. Clearly you've been telling me recently. Actually i'm not hearing it. He said you're just being comfortable not comfortable. I don't know. I'm not being comfortable. And i am being comfortable or else. That would never happen being comfortable enough to say. Hey i'm going to be on this platform. So i was being comfortable but if i look at a deeper is i'm not being intimate with time and i haven't been i haven't been time for for a little while now and now it's just like this is an opportunities platform actually creating opportunities addiction for your opportunity to see that. I'm not as intimate with time. As i used to be. At one point at one point. I was very and i'm totally not intimate was raised to wake up at five. Am like boom. Never come out so we have ten minutes but we can serve you coming up so i wanted to share with you guys. You know sometimes the people in your life that are giving you feedback first of all. If you're giving somebody feedback in your life right now that you that you love and you care about like my feedback to ashes. Not like you're a loser. I can't believe it's not like that. It's like it's like bed like you got to put some boundaries around this because if you don't you're gonna find that your son's going to start giving feedback or and i don't say this in front of our son right and all of a sudden zach says to him last night he says dad. You're always on your phone and you said that you come play with me. And i'm watching him. Come play with him. he's trying to be a good dad and fit his son in right and that's not as intentionally no his commitment and so i'm not trying to make them feel bad. I'm not yelling at him. I'm not any of that stuff. But i am bringing it up. Which can sound like. I don't want to hear that coming from the other person. But i do my best to stand very very neutral in just saying hey care about you i love you and this is not your vision right. This is not your vision. And then we noticed that our son started replicating lost his lost his belt at karate right for not being present being focused and guess who has idolised right so now. This isn't guilt and shame we're biblical we don't believe in guilt and shame at all in fact this morning you were incredible when you were like I can't believe that. I'm like thirty minutes late. Like any starts to feel that energy of like that guilt energy. And and i'm not good enough now shifted really quick and you looked at me and he asked his wife for help. He asked me for help. And he said honey. I just i need your help right now. How can i turn this around. How can i turn this around. How can i change the agreement with how could make it better for them. And i'm like. I don't know what you can do and i'm like let me think. Let me think. And because he was so consistent with. I need your help to think through this. How can i make this better for them. How can i and so. How can i over you know deliberate deliver which is different than bringing your spouse to your girlfriend. Your boyfriend flowers. That's amazing but honestly by the time they've gotten flowers by the fifth time for the same shit. They're over it now. Your flowers are not they have no integrity with them right and so you got to learn how to partner with the people in your life were you realize like where do i fall short things. Where do i need their support. Because they're going to mir back to us how we stand for them so you shifted. You walked into that room. I'm sure you were battling with your mind. Walked him to that room and he stood there like a powerful leader and he gave to them and in a way. And i said do my said first of all uses an opportunity because everybody messes up and you know again we're biblical so i call it the enemy right the devil satan like he would love you to think that you are a piece of you know what he would love you to show up shameful like your way and that and honestly and here when i say this that is what a losing strategy would look like a losing strategy would be to grab a hold of that. There's no leadership in that. That's a losing strategy. There's no respect. Didn't that there's no i look up to you and that there's none of that you have to shift go. I forgive myself. Forgive myself. And i'm going to show up and i've said this to some of my friends that have had somebody in their life that is like to them and go into a forgive Process forgive yourself completely and then speak it to that person. Do you know what i am. Sorry and i forgive myself. And i hope you can forgive me too so that you can get your power back and then it's up to you to show up in a different way but if you keep short trying to show up in a different way apologizing your way forward than actually going four and you're begging for love and power and leadership and they're not give it to you because they know that this is a failing strategy intuitively so we show this with you guys all to say. Listen like were walking through this together as a couple. Our son is walking through this with us. In fact clubhouse reminds me of kids and their online gaming systems where they're going into other people's rooms and playing games with them We just found out that our son gave his his ipad password to an older boy at school. And you know even though i'm biblical obviously i know all the stories about what happens at church sometimes like some of the most trusted people. But that's not just a church half of the Sexual predators are your uncles. Your aunts your best friend's husband or son or daughter or you know what i mean. This is why our son is not allowed to stay at anybody's house and he will never be allowed to stay at anybody house. You can judge me for that all you want. But he will never spend the night if somebody's house. Because i know what the statistics are. And i'm not gonna put blinders on and go. That will never happen to arcade. So i got to show him videos of little boys that are playing online and the chats pop up in. Its you know if you go to instagram. Go to my instagram. shanta sumpter. Look at my stories and go watch the video post on. It is so profound to watch because we think it's always a little girl thing is so profound that this month We have don't needed a bunch of money to christine caine. We're in the process of doing that right now. around human trafficking and then we're encouraging people like you to go to a hardcore gibbs page Tending to say this. But i shamelessly say go to hardcore gives dot com and literally we are. We are assembling different products and services to teach you how to build businesses and giving to you are stuff for free to donate fifty five dollars one hundred dollars as a couple of different options on the pages you can do a one time give or you can do a reoccurring give and every month. We're picking different God anointed places. And the only reason why i chose that yes i am biblical but the reason why i chose that multiple different cities and countries and then they had faith driven nonprofits go in and because the faith driven brings the relief like the physical relief and the money but they also bring the faith. You know an entrepreneur without faith is isolation you know a a give without teaching somebody that there's something bigger than the jet. There's something bigger like we like. There's just something bigger than than you making a lot of money and building something. I know you know that intuitively. But i can't even imagine what life without like really having a connection that so much bigger because then surely the hustle doesn't stay at the same hustle level because everybody has a comfortable mark. And when you hit that comfortable. Marcus what that's word. The trauma triggers are coming. That's were depressions coming in. That's where the feeling of not being good enough. That's where all that comes in so you better have a connection with something bigger so because the studies have shown that that people are taught faith and top biblical principles. What happens is that those those cities and countries actually re- rehabilitate. So that's why we chose that versus just straight nonprofits. But i love nonprofit So we're giving one hundred percent of that money away. We're giving ten percent of our income away so this month done human trafficking so have a podcast coming up. Any final words just listened to the feedback. You've been receiving be honest with yourself. Don't defend it don't defended own it own it and then create a commitment to move it forward.

Somebody's live naming curse people to give hardcore gives which i don't take any of that one hundred percent goes goes away we match our money with yours and i believe that we have massive favor on our company and definitely on my life and i would love to share that favor with you as we pool our money together to make a difference in the power of just a higher.

You do blondie in iran. Ah and you're good at all of them. So i was really impressed. But we're here to talk about your original music So what started you in the music industry like made you want to be mission. I'll let you go first. Us thank you. Thank you say for listening. Tour covers where. We're putting a lot of for trying to entertain people For now that we cannot play any live gigs at the moment. And that's our challenge. So i'm really happy that you're liking them and well. I don't know. I've always been quite like obsessed with music since i can remember like music. So is something. That's been around me. And i think i when i started learning to play guitar just became a way for me to be able to express myself and i just really liked it and decided i want to like the be able to express myself to other people on stage and just make some nice. When did you pick up qatar. I think i was like fourteen years old. That's a good age you. Who would you consider someone in terms of the best advocates. Say eddie van halen jimi hendrix. Yeah well anyway. Helen definitely is probably one of the best guitarist that ever existed his technique. Just amazing. But i am more influenced would say probably from the school of jimi hendrix or even joan. Shanta they to me. They speak a little bit more in there like the way they play guitar. Talks to me more jack. Why is also a massive influence for me. And how were they different. Well i think that. At least in my opinion i feel like they were more focused on expressing themselves without having to be technically perfect. And that's something that i really like because to me. Rock n roll should be shouldn't be perfect one hundred percent. It shouldn't be sloppy. Sometimes and i think the jumpers shanta jimi hendrix are very good at it like they prefer feeling an expression over technicality and to me and say everything he has to say with a couple of notes without having to be like the the hardest solar to play. And that's something that has always like It always grabbed me. That's a very really cool actually nation. I like that thank you like. I actually just have largest as show He airs tomorrow night and he has classical influences and as as a versus the Legacy guitars as pretty cool to hear that. And what about you. jonathan sesame. I started about the same age is all to be fair a senator maybe attainable tain like best year from junior high school and it was. The guitar actually wanted to play sax festival but Aaron school band so tar was in the end than I guess i always song as well deciphering growing up in the car with that sort of thing and kind of tend into something that i decided one day i wanted to do roughly Be i guess so here. I am in london. A few years. Later meccanico Pretty much what about you in terms of Points on your qatar i think it's Like i was never the best guitar school. I went to school some very talented kids. So i let pretty early on that. I wasn't going to be this phenomenal late guitars so i saw to focus more on the singer. Songwriter kinda angle guess For may one of my heroes would be benefiting finding out of inga australian australian singer. An isa's very talented in that sense. Like a love his malaise. He's always very comfortable playing in singing when he does He kind of scots into the boundaries of being a front man as well because he just puts it down just jumps around So i think that's kind of where i took a lot of influence on my. Let's see why would focus on your phone calls saw You're wrong was very very strong. enjoyable to hear thank you. So what would you background growing up. Where's your problem background like. Who introduced Suddenly pick up an interest in music. I think i mean. I grew up in a musical house in terms if there was always music playing. But i don't think anyone in my family was ever really properly classically trained in any way. Mum played the flute a bit growing up. But that was it but I was a pretty good lia You know. I played a little bit of piano bus younger as well and never really followed the notation. I always learn the songs by eia Woman teaches but Yeah i i just kind of. When i got about imposing picked up the guitar lessons such as kind of lent into that a little bit i guess in still learning stuff for me. It's any more have gone like multiple colluded with the theory Thing but it was always just about the enjoyment of may in so long. As i was enjoying it i wanted to do more of it ends. I just did. I became really sipa gamer cope ramallah and continued to be you our well. I think it's almost a very similar story today. Actually and my family's always been into music my dad from a very early age. He was like almost forcing me to listen to the beatles. Or let's apple in. And like since i remember i've known like most of the songs and they've always been very musical. I have an uncle that used to play guitar in a band. As well. And i think when i started picking up the star. He was probably my first guitar hero when i was a teenager. And and then he was the one that was like giving me some tapes at the beginning. When i was starting. He will in a band as well. And then i guess that's when it kind of clicked probably unconsciously that. I also wanted to be in abandoned like blame my own songs that's awesome. Let's talk about the ban once they find really unique and cool your ban. Is you have an aussie. You have somebody progress l. a mexico and scotland. It's almost like a joke about someone going into a rock band that happen. Like how did you guys meet. And i'll let you tell the best part of the. Oh thank you thank you gene. Well i think it has to do with the fact that we all came to london to play music and away or another and london is very multicultural. City it's very similar. I would say with some of like where it's a big city is one of the biggest in europe. So you have people coming from all over. Doesn't really matter where they from. People like g end up playing music with a lot of different people from different backgrounds. It all started and also probably thanks to the age of the internet. That helps you connect with whoever. You're looking forward to have a jam with. I started playing covers in our in a cover band. Goose then we decided we wanted to make a band of regional songs years later. We met louis Putting an ad Also on the internet in his throat reports all of his music school and then at the same time When we started looking for someone that could properly sing. We came across the same thing like the internet. Come with adverts lot of bands. John jat kisa. Yeah a lot. Yeah multiple list of them. I don't have them all on my head. But i have seen that and your songs are definitely reflective of your bans lifestyle and year youth actually lake city nightlife and your personal experiences one of the tractor featuring that will be played. A company has little shop. It's a funky tune was also hard your other tracks. Listen to all your music Talk about the song. I wanna know about it so I guess what you're preparing with. The soft influence was probably made this film. Just because that was the first track. I properly wrote from the ground up with the band We did have another song coming out. This kind of the ab singer released to bits sort of counted to it so very much back on track in terms of being a bit heavier in a bit louder and everything but that song was a definitely great. Said it's a bit softer k. Came from a Been playing around for years and years And i kind of took around the world with me really couldn't quite find while i wanted to actually make the song about then. I go to london. Had a bit of a rough time. Travelling in a bad breakup. Oldest things in Met maya flatmate. We've become really good friends. Figured in a why write a song about this girl the without with menaka breida mice own my flatmate and make it about that it more about friendship and kind leaning on each other in the thing and that's kind of powder someone was i. Suppose if it's banned in an attendant something more well. The name is the cat in english. Yeah so it was her name kathryn and his mental. But yet now that's pretty good actually could guess mental. But she's just very the line. I would say as as a person. People embody certain animals and certain characteristics. I would descend. She's very feline. And so i just have nicknamed bicyclers was called a cap and she's french swaps hence the taught in french. That's pretty cool After a cat a call. I have a daughter that's They actually to a stepdaughter. Allstate cat so yeah. Let's why ready to that so The story you guys about a lot of coverage on that he did talk about the some of the reviews that follow the saw Well i think people were happy to to listen to something. that sounds more evolved. That would say it definitely shows How the band's can now start making more like start being more multiple saddik in a way brother than just playing some old not all like some old school rock and rolling as we've received really good reviews from song thankfully where really happy with that. It's our most successful release to date as well in terms of streams and views. We've all got really nice comments and like we definitely can't wait to play life. We're gonna listen to shout A read Man sand bio spa pads san know. A lot of things I really enjoy the song. Answer it's really a different way of the tracks as someone who really like it. I have read all the reviews finance there. Thank you One thing is consistent. Is you've been again given the I guess the moniker very energetic on stage. gates good. We want people to to remember when they come to see definitely We really are from the point of view that like you need to put on a show. People are paying a ticket to casillas. You need to make memorable. Didn't makes it unique to make it worth it for them to To come and also to come back and also have a good time notoriety in the london rock surf. Thank you. yeah. I guess we figure like if if you to dance around tacconi expect the audience to you know. If you're having fun up there is going to have fun. You kinda cycling. Eve also played a Pretty popular revenues borderline camden ninety three feet east to have the monir. The big red which was wasn't he liked to play at the boast. Or do you have any stories for one of those venues. Well there is this one place called the dublin castle in camden which is not the most not place to play add. But we've never left that place over so we've always had a good timing that place and it's quite it's got some rock and roll history as well. That's where amy wayne has used to to her gigs. Arctic monkeys played the couple of times. It's a really cool place to play. We've blade also like borderline. He's one of the biggest venues we played so far. And that was a really really fun. Gig but to me probably. My favorite one was They they gave when we released a previous singles which was our last gig. That was definitely one of my favorite ones Had a really good time and that was borderline. The was in place called the gallery gallery in north london. Which was it was really really cool to play there well. It was just a very festive environment. We were just releasing some singles and people were really up for it I think it was like the best kind of mood to play. And also because he was asked is probably the one the makes it like more like most algae can not a whole lot gigging going on right now. Let it all so Camden actually is well known for quite a active succeed. Yeah yeah yeah definitely. It's got a lot of a lot of history. It was the birthplace of punk rock in the seventy s. Also a lot of in the iraq going on in the two thousands. It's a really cool place. If you ever come to london we'll take you for a drink and camden. Why did you take a mask about all these things i like to know. You know because it gives us One thing. I don't like to travel and do the tours thing. I i like to go where the locals hanging out and elect. That's the way less way to travel. When i do travel. I'm not really a traveler. So don't like. I will show up at your front door. There were what about your influences like. Yours sounds fairly habit I would say italian. I get the seventies feel as a seventy sound but it's a completely unique and you guys go There's no You can't really put in asia on even though are rock which i would just say your rock. But you have a lot of flexibility in yourself down and Being able to put great music out regardless you must have seventies influences. Yeah i think we all worship that europe the show quite disparate in the benz. We like and then we have overlaps as well so like i mean for may wanna models Like in excess and michael hutchinson Things a alike to channel. That where i can and then i know how like yourself may official big fan of queens of the stone age nasa thing. I think that kind of ripples zone through at times and has mad about foot biters lowest listens to absolutely everything have never met someone. Recession eclectic tastes in music. So i think because it quite well. listened in. Broadly listened as well kind of the. I think we can't help. Be the eclectic in the music that way that we make in a kind of naturally happens. Yeah it's funny. It's funny how you say that. Because i think that we all have our different influences but we can all agree. That seventh is rock has definitely made an impact analysis as well as all the other bands like for example led zeppelin All those bands from that time cream. I love the app. Show is a very big ginger baker as a drummer so we have very diverse influences but we all agree on a lot of seventies bands. And i think that's what makes a band so diverse in suspicion. Where sometimes so grounded is that we. We have a lot of variety in our influences but we we have a lot of similarities as well. I think i think that's That probably is reason That your music is considered John rug defying. because of all. These different influences. I i can't. I can't say any band that's in rock hasn't had Any of those bands affected but not often. You see all those influences. Come into a bands. Music definitely have been successful. Juno that the i launched the podcast on january twelfth. Do you know the reason to you know the reason i did. There was a uk bam that produce recorded a ep. Their first ep. It was paid for by the lead And the manager yet. It was released in the us under label and it was released in january twelve nine hundred sixty nine by another none other than lead social. Was the day this show launched say i i was i had to. Do you know anybody that falls. Music has to do something to honor the gods right. yeah so what. About the extracts. We're gonna hear is a bit happier very great. I love the drums guitar and vocals pursue jason song overall What's that song about. Well that song. I think kind of a break-up another gun lover who's break at this time. It's a sad boy song mine Well i guess it's just about the feeling when something and and you. It's the frustration that you get when Trying to keep kind of falls down and combined with a couple of drinks you know nights out I guess it's trying to cope with the things that you cannot change. I guess that's how nicely put ovoid behaviors. Yes business shall we say. Bonding avoidance boy. Is that what you chose to make the track cathy. I guess so yeah. It's a bit of an angry track. And i think it's also a bit conscious of itself and i guess it's a bit of like just overall frustration. I guess i like the track as a big getting strong reviews. i would assume it would Well it's one of the Or favorites lung simply life and definitely got some attention once once it came out People people are liking it. So yeah it's one of my favorites. We're i listen to it now. So now pursuit com man baker way home break first so that song out in november two thousand fifteen and as i said before a shot Just recently last november Why was there a gap and making music band going through some changes. Are you just writing period. Too heavy riding to be on a similar kind of still in that at the moment. Lift a load of songs not finished close to being finished in of the set in the works on down. It's been amazing that really. That's that's one thing. I'll say this has been really good. It's been able to focus on writing and I'm just kind of social content. And that's the thing. Is you the same with the covers. In a way that i don't know what allies like when normal in any gain all the time he doesn't have time for these sorts of things so it's been nice created this foundation while we can yes and also as soon as we released. The previous singles is when lockdown started happening around the world and we had actually planned to try to start playing outside london just to get like a bigger kind of following around the uk and then covid hit and we had to say at home and like we use that time to write songs and finish the shot and single. That is coming after definitely that that made an impact because we could not go back to the studio until mid twenty twenty. So he's been. We had this song already written probably before the pandemic hit. We couldn't really hit the studio until mead's last year the way you record at the studio secret. Warehouses shout out to get value yeah. He's one of my favorites man. I love he's great and he has such a passion for music us. Anyone very towns. What's your creative process site deserve. What are the band members johnson. Ju- right most of the murrow. There are is a collaboration between the band. Like out of this songs come about so. I think this a change in evolution in the way that we've done things like the the shah is the core of whoever is bands and then for some of the other songs next release was collaborative. And then the newest Working now this next batch. It's someone will move mobile build on that national hilario. Whatever you know. It's kind of been that face. It's nice his way of getting much. That i think Had just rising old together. Yup sound coming out of that flow thing. I think we are in a constant pursuit of of finding our own sounds as trying to evolve it and sometimes like every song has a very different process. Sometimes journal writes get diarrhea. And i absolutely destroyed and turn it in something different that become too strong sometime We just jamming the studio and suddenly we have a couple of raves. That we're using different songs so the writing process is very different like we just one person brings a little see it and then between everyone just turns it into what we think is a song and i i find that process really interesting and i really love it. How it never ends up how we arrived to the studio. You can say that that's interesting. So what do you feel is the industry. Outlook is a also you for the industry as well. Let's start with you and then the industry's hall because you guys seem to be. You did react positively to cova by creating keeping busy so what do you feel. The band's out looker where going from pan. While i think what we've got a bunch of ideas in the works online while we can't be doing shows necessary thing they has as lockdown needs is a little bit for us in the day the next day. Will they probably logistic shows sort of thing before we are able to play for big squishy sweaty. Why the news kind of affects is going to be initially. What do you think yeah. Yeah the jonas definitely ride like now. Trying to keep people entertained. We are playing our covers and at the same time where Writing a bunch of songs to have very by the time where allowed to go into the studio and then afterwards just try to get as many gigs as possible. Get award around that Where we've got some new music Going into the studio recording then just tried to play over the uk. As soon as we can. I think that's mainland. Satisfy saying you're going to go back where you were before and to get your sound at threat the uk. Yeah they say yeah but it will be probably stronger. than we would have been full simply to the following online more exposure that way and then also i think actually met as much better musicians since been amazon myself. I feel like. I've improved loads from the covers and comfortable hand and conto from doing the covers. Name really nice is while it's kind of i think shyness the boundaries of what we can do will be not the thing as well so it's but we will be coming out of this stronger musicians bringing that content that the songs less Away on almost kind of glad that this has happened. It's probably gone a bit longer than would like put them nice to hear that. I share that always every challenge chance. Chancellor steinman yeah yeah definitely. Yeah well that's too. That's too simple boy. Joking certain industry. Okay i'll give you a question Do you feel that. A lot of musicians or artists fans may decide not to pursue a career in music because of the pandemic and the issues fair. Boscell not really possible. I think quite a few bands that would have otherwise fallen by the wayside. And we'll see on the other side of walk down that that his event known told anyone yet. I i know a couple of my friends who wanted to get into the music industry from a business perspective of actually looks the other way now instead of looking for other industries to lack him because that saying how fragile it is as pandemic rato's nays united that the scientist root for us to be doing so. I think you're absolutely rises sounded pessimistic but i think that is the guy is on on a positive what i think will happen now is that town will lead itself so if you while his sock than a but people that put the head down and really pushed her. We're still about working hard and having phone in the process. I think i feel the law. Bans such as yourself I have to use this positivity like you guys have writing better music gathering Their skills up and very welby incredible explosion of music pressure renaissance. That'd be great. Yeah it would definitely be definitely be why. No i'm going to be down for going to a long and it's been too long too long here as well because i think we we sit now little bubble. Sometimes we get locked studio this writing music and stuff then whenever we get the you know the audience is missing. Watch shows just as much as we missing playing enough. Oh yeah i. i'm not one to go to. The movies are vicodin. Since i was younger. I saved up my money to go to rock concert to go to festival like to me. That's fun sitting in the movie theaters staring full front for whatever the amount of time. It doesn't fun. I like being in a in a crowd make friends instantly with the people with you just simply because you love the same band and the next night gigs. Nothing nothing compares to being sweaty next to some many other people is into the same song that means so much to you. Yeah so you talked about direct nola and you sort of mentioned about a new release coming out. She know the date that it might outer random. The the date right now is a bit of a mystery for for the audience and for us as how history i think people can expect some music in the next couple of months i would say depending how able and how open the countries to for us to start making music videos in like that because since we have a new release we want to make it the best way possible. We want to have a music video for it. We want to be blamed for it and hopefully also make it a little bit closer to when people can go to live again this to get people interested but definitely will have some new music coming soon in the next couple of months. So we're really excited for that one forward to hearing. Definitely we can send it to you agents. can you want jimmy my friend. You've ever seventy releases. I love the i'd love.
