How do I shut off my brain so I can recharge?

"So Marivan emails me this great question for taste Cuny Wednesday. He says lately I have been working a lot. Most of which requires a lot of thinking I'm a web developer I love my job and what I do so much that I can't stop thinking about it when I'm eating when I'm working when I'm playing games, even when I'm hanging out with my friends, and family and I just don't want to do that I want my brain. To shut off, so I can recover Sarkin recuperate. Love the show. Love the podcast so much marathon. Thank you so much for that. Great Question Marathon and you are spot on. Many entrepreneurs. Many professionals deal with this issue and I'm GONNA. Give you my strategies. comes to dealing with this number one. It's good that you recognize you have the self awareness to understand that you're doing something that is maybe not the best for you where your mind is racing constantly. Some people think hey, that's great. You should be thinking about your should be carrying about all these things. You should be thinking about what you're doing. Y Shut it off while there's a big reason. There's actually a real biological reason why you should do it. Scientifically proven that your brain works at its best at its subconscious meaning. have. You ever noticed that you might have a problem in life or in business and you slept on it? You get the chance to sleep to rest, or you stepped away from it for a little bit. You went for a walk and it gets solved why you come up with great ideas well, how does it happen? It's because your subconscious brain allows itself to work on it. You have to allow your brain to shut off a little bit you need to. Stop thinking about it in. Your conscious mind. This is why it's actually good for your business to stop thinking about Your Business or whatever you do. Your subconscious mind is going to allow yourself. To solve problems to think of better ideas. There's only so much your conscious mind can do. So there are a few things I want to mention. These are the things that have worked for me number one. It's very hard when you're awake when you're actually in the daytime when you're spending your days when it's the weekend. To kind of just shut off your brain. You're not sleeping, right? You're not unconscious. Right so you want to do something else. What should you do to stop thinking about what you are constantly thinking about? This is where immersion comes in a big believer that in order for you to stop thinking about something or to take a break from something. You have to immerse yourself in something else. That's totally immersive. That takes your full attention that requires you to focus completely on it, and this could be several things for some people. It's like snowboarding or skiing because if you're down, the mountain on skis are on a snowboard unit focused totally on what you're doing. You're avoiding trees avoiding people. You're controlling your balance. All that kind of you're just totally immersed in that. You can't think about anything else. And the feeling that people have had a full day of skiing or snowboarding is a sense of zen sense of relaxation. How could that be they physical activity for six seven hours well, it's because their brain got a break. You gotta break from what normally thinks about. It pushed all your common thoughts to your subconscious, and your conscious mon was consumed with something totally different. This is just one example I know a lot of people. They have the same experience when they're in a very intense card game in a poker game. Even in an game we're requires their total focus and concentration. Another example is sport like if you play in a league, the safest companies they soccer basketball like I played basketball for recreation, and you can't think about anything else when you're in a basketball game you're there's so much going on. You need to focus on what you're doing and you're dribbling shooting. You're passing your thing of strategy. You think of the score. It really allows you to wipe your mind for a couple hours, and it's actually you come back feeling a sense of relief. For some people, it's a gripping novel that puts them in that place. Unique to find your think, marijuana and everybody listening you have to think what can I do? That can immerse myself. Rum totally focused on that task. These

In his years that he's been a Professional Anaconda put you into that group Not so much because your age because frankly I don't know how much or how old you are. You don't need to tell me that but I think that you've done a lot for the number of years that you've been making a living for yourself. So that's another reason why I wanted to have yon of the draws cast so So before we get your professional cry like to kind of set it up and find out a little bit of background about the people that are interview so Where did you grow up. What city specific did you grow up in? Sure so starting I'll tell you I'm thirty one so that we can get that out. Okay well then. You can be a whiz kid concerning. Yeah Yeah for me. That's a whiz kid. And I look sick. Buffalo New York in just the suburbs village called Williamsville. Just fifteen minutes outside of the city. You know. My my dad was a military guy. He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake. How listen and then throughout college and somebody's work. I Work Sides Washer. We'd orange juice plus boy creative people as host and just went through all. That was kind of my start hospitality and stuff but I love this area. I'm a diehard bills. Fan Bills Mafia. We're we're out here representing and I've lived away a couple of different places and now back. So you're part now is did you say it was the Buffalo Mafia or the bills Mafia bills? Yeah I had heard that term before. That's pretty interesting So that was going to be a question of mine if you were an a sports fan for the sports that are in the buffalo area but it sounds like it a yeah. I usually if you're from Buffalo. You're you're a big bills and the sabres kind of life around here whether we're good or bad and you say bad but we're good fans and we have a lot of fun so having been to buffalo a few times myself For those of you out there who are listening that have never been to Buffalo Niagara Falls is what would you say about twenty minutes? North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here. I am this young kid and deal with all these adults different people and everybody's hungry after church. The breakfast in Hama just taught me a great deal of patients and just kind of savviness of just kind of dealing with people of all different ages and expectations

"I have to confess. I was telling today's guests that I had not heard of him. Although we have mutual friends until one of his blog posts popped across. I believe my facebook feed and I realized that this is somebody who really fits in with one of our main goals is to break down those knowledge. Siles silos or with Dr Benjamin Stevens. He's a chiropractor in. Canada is a educator and the reason that I was really interested to have him on his he wrote a blog. Post called dear therapist. You're not a strength coach or personal trainer so Dr Stevens. Thank you for taking time to talk for moving to live. You're very welcome. I'm really looking forward to this. My first question I always ask people on moving to live because everybody likes to put labels on things and we know in the age of Social Media. Everybody puts on a front. You see somebody in an elevator. And you're wearing a t shirt from your clinic or you're clearly somebody who's in the medical field and they say. Hey what do you do? What's your elevator? Spiel you explain to people. This is what Dr Stevens does usually cy. I entirely can aside my hands over my eyes. Look Tired House long answer. But for the most part I usually just answer sports heartbreaker in a lot of time. That's kind of a cop out answer but Sometimes I'll say I ideally concussions. Sometimes I'll stay I'm a professional educator. I actually I make more of my living in spend more time educating than than anything else right now And sometimes I say I run a couple of businesses so kind of depends the company that But most time Most of the time I decide because I'm literally always I'm always doing about five different things all very much related but I'm always doing different things So it's as you've probably figured out not a lot of time and I know that's something the five different things we're going to get into a little later. I'm always interested when I interview people for moving to live if you're in a movement profession and I would put sport Chiropractic in a movement profession. Were you an active kid and if you were an active kid was because mom and Dad said get the heck out of the house and don't come back. Were you a kid who is an athlete all along at some point? You realize you know. I might not be able to make my living as an athlete. But I'd really like to do something that allows me to be around people that move. Yeah I think I'm I'm of that era where it's you you. You don't bother your parents by hanging around the house in hoping for something to do because they'll get annoyed with you kick you out tell you to essentially come back whenever it gets dark right or comeback. When it suffered time right so I I did. What a lot of kids. I grew up playing with a lot of the neighborhood kids I played pretty well every single sport. that I could get my hands on on the entirely honest I always I tended to not stay with many sports for very long in a lot of that was For me I really enjoyed movements But I was very self paced person and was very noncompetitive. And so you know at this age I can realize a lot of it was kind of a big artistic streak in me on and I really appreciate it. A lot of movement disciplines that allowed for rather than having highly stringent rules in highly competitive Matter of Italian board I really appreciate it. Things Ettelaat more expression to them and so even even the sports that I did plan. I always found myself wanting to play the position. That was either extremely important or you have freedom of decision-making so the goalie in hockey or soccer in some way shape or form you know. I try to try and play point guard in basketball all these different things where I kinda got to not run the show but in some way making decisions on the fly because I didn't really enjoy running back and forth on a field for the running back and forth out of fuel but chase a ball so I ended up playing pretty every single sport of Ice Hockey Goalie for twenty years started. Snowboarding got into different kinds of dance and Essentially tried everything else in the meantime Olympic lifting. Powerlifting competed in bodybuilding kettlebells WanNa do for a long time And I'm a I'm a chronic dabbler in every movement discipline and usually I'll just look at something that looks like a lot of fun and figure out a way to try it and sometimes it's six sometimes it stays for years sometimes for days. Yeah creative lifestyle. It's not really something. I have a specific discipline that I that I view as the better discipline. I just I kinda WanNa try them all wanted experience them all and I'll put one that you can add on your bucket list for my local. Fit pittsburgh-based podcast. I interviewed a place that does High Level Pugo sticking and I actually now have an air airfield pogo stick which is absolutely if you ever had a pogo stick as a kid. It is the most fun thing the world record for the high jump in the Pugo stick is ten feet where you have to. You can step off something but when you go over the bar you have to bounce three times. I have no desire to do that. Bouncing around is just that novel or new moving activity so check out X. Pogo chancer or check out. Some of their videos. Because you look at it and go well that might be in business for me or wow. That looks like a lot of fun and I can see how I might want to add that into my life. Yep there's there's a unique aspects of bouncing that's really might have a four year old daughter and she goes the gymnastics and unfortunately they recently changed the rules around this six months ago. Took her to gymnastics at a drop in all the other parents sitting in the corner on the phone and then roaming around like jumping from trampoline the trampoline fifty feet in the air and a lot of. That's just because I did a lot of stuff as a kid you know. I used to being in the air and it was just so funny. I completely forgot all the kids were there and bouncing around for five minutes like heart rates through the roof the love bouncing just flopping on my back in front slips and backflips all these different things on. I'm at an age probably shouldn't be doing that but I get done like a sit down. I look up and like all. The kids have stopped doing gymnastics. And they're just like what's old guy but there's something unique about dancing up and down that Michigan Giddy like a little kid exactly and I'm always curious when I interview people. I've got the advantage of being able to read the form. You filled out prior and check out your webpage. You go to college. I believe majored in biology. How did you decide to major in biology? So the funny thing is I started in biology and I really didn't like it So I worked. I'd been working various jobs in some nine. I started with a paper route and so ended up saving enough money to go to pay for at least my first year university on my own and so kind of like I have the money. I don't really know what exactly what I WANNA do. So I went and started kind of a just general bachelors of science in Biology. Not Knowing where it was going to go and I absolutely hated it mostly because it was. I like the freedom of university compared to high school beard kind of having a job but I mean I was studying flat worms in Geology. And you know social history and just this kind of broad scatter plot of staff which I understand is important for certain things Did that for twelve years. Studied a little bit of everything for twelve years like this is just not fund is doing more of the same so I quit. After my first year I came out to British Columbia in western Canada's SNOWBOARD PUN for year. And then I went back and started a theology degree or something Human Kinetics degree and love every second of it and essentially it. Just kinda a lightbulb moment really hit this is what I. This is what I want to be studying. This is how i WanNa be thinking where I want my brain to spend all its time from now on when school was really easy after that into it's amazing. I had a similar path when I took general education classes my first year. My GPA wasn't very good at no. When I got into athletic training classes all of a sudden it's like Oh this is interesting. It really doesn't seem like work when you have something that you're interested. Yeah Yeah it's funny because I was so we ended up in the last semester of my wife was with me and ended up last semester in school with almost no courses because I literally had taken like seven or eight courses a semester during my entire Undergrad started switched to kings. Y'All AJI and most people are just like trying to figure out what they can get away with that I was literally trying to overload my schedule going like we haven't advanced exercise physiology court. How could I not take right light? It's like this is amazing inside. Take absolutely everything to the point. Where in my last mess courses soda almost essentially ended the whole thing really excited right whereas prior to that it was kind of just like you said it was like an ominous through is like study for this. I found myself. You know reading ahead chapters in anatomy classes geology classes in stopping. I think it's a good sign. You know when you get to that point and I think it's something there's some people who are just hardwired that way. They just have that innate curiosity whatever they learn there's like other there must be something more to learn. Yeah Yeah I think I think honestly a lot of people have built in And the people that don't think they have a built in. They probably just haven't found the same yet. That's all

What Exactly Is a Sales Funnel?

"Concept of a sales funnel has been around for some time but they became very popular in the last five six years because of the Internet and how easy it is to build pages and websites for yourself a funnels basically a procedure to get someone who's interested in what you have to offer to the point where the our customer so if you can imagine or you can visualize a fun on your head right now. You know the type of funnel you'd use to change the oil oil in your car has a wide top and a narrow bottom so in sales and marketing terms. This basically means that you could put a lot of people inside the top but As they go through only a few come out the bottom. And that's just the nature of business you're gonNA attract a lot of people. A lot of people would be interested to walk into your physical store four but a fraction of them will buy your job is to try to increase that fraction rights. Increase that number. Try to get as many people buying from the top of the funnel. So what does this mean practically for you in your business. Well you may want to create a funnel to attract somebody to your entry level product addict so many is an example just to make simple. Let's say you're trying to sell your ten dollar e book so funnel foreign e Book would look something like a page on your website right that offers something for free in exchange for the name and email address. This is the top of the funnel. And let's say you're a book is all about snowboarding for beginners. Then on this page page where give their name and email address in exchange for asking them. Hey opt in and I'm going to give you the five most important steps in beginning to learn. Learn how to snowboard. So they're going to get something for free. You can watch video. That's going to show them the five steps in starting to snowboard learning how to snowboard. And that's GONNA attract a lot of people because a Lotta People Wanna learn something for free especially if they're interested in learning how so bored once they give their email address there in your funnel that means now now you can contact them you can email them and you could follow up with them to offer them. Something else in the next step would be like a paid. That has the video that you promised and then the next step the whole point of a funnel. Is You walk the customer by the hand and you never let them go until the actually actually by and in fact even after they buy there are other steps by other things right so let me walk through this funnel so you could see this example so the opt in give their name and email address in exchange to watch that lesson that video and on the video the end you say hey Krista below and download the first chapter of my book on how to be a proficient snowboarder for example and then you'd foul up with an email. Hey did you download my first chapter of my e book you could download it here if not the email another email. Maybe a couple of days later giving him a few more tips another email me a few days later saying hey. Here's a blockbuster you might find helpful. And then maybe the next email is a link to a page that explains to them why they want to by the holy book for Ten Dollars Video. Maybe says what the book includes in all the chapters basically a sales video for the e book and you tell them hey the next step go ahead and buy the book below the video and there's like a checkout area. They by the book and now they're accustomed right. But in most businesses there are levels to products so the books just the first step. Maybe the next step is your online course than is your mastermind group and then after that you have A live event and that continues the funnel holding customer by the hand showing him the next step so as you could see. This is a procedure to show your customers by the hand what to do next. It's like a personal sales person to for them to help them get get what they need from Your Business. So how do you actually do this. How do you actually billing for yourself? Well I actually think you should start with a paper and pen. It's much easier for you to visualize what you need to build what you need to do. I on paper and then you could just use it as a reference. This is what I do actually have a big like A three size paper and I draw out my funnels each page. What's the next step Laura emails? They get all that kind of stuff so for every funnel that I have inside my business. Yes so you can use the example. I gave with the book with your own products. What is the Freeman thing? You're going to give and then after that. What are they gonNA get as like a bonus like a free first chapter and then what kind of email fauves will you have? And then what's the offer high gonNA sell that offer with a video the sales page so even if you just literally right on a piece of paper my final has four steps here. The forceps use emails a fire. These are the subject lines of these e mails. And it's going to take you about an hour to write that all down into draw all now but then you have a plant. That's an actual plan for funnel. So how'd he actually make it real on the web so you have a few options you can can build it yourself if you have somebody that runs your website and can build pages for you. They can build the pages that you sketched on the paper and tell them what you want them to do and when the opt in they want them to join this email list on my email marketing software. You can actually do it yourself if you know a little bit about how the create websites even if you're using a tool like elementary or for wordpress which allows you to kind of drag and drop pages or you can use. WHO's a all in one? kind of tool like click funnels or lepage's click. Funnels actually made a whole business based on this concept and they're probably the ones Eh. Do this the most or probably the easiest way to create a funnel is strategic funnel so they have the whole funnel built out for you The templates for you. You could do with Lepage's as well but just be a little bit more step by step the only disadvantage to using a tool like a clique finals or Lepage's is that Eh. your templates are GonNa look similar to other people are using that tool My advice if you're GONNA use click funnels or early pages or something like that is to modify the templates and you could do that. Change a chain of fonts make a look your own and you could do this or you or you can actually buy a template from their marketplace to Frenchie it yourself. A little from the rest of the people are using these tools. And if you're using something like look funnels then it's pretty straightforward. It's actually very very easy. And you could pretty much build out The pages on your site in the funnels in about an hour or two. Maybe three if you're customizing things to make it look you. You look like you're on the thing that's going to take most of the time. Though is the content. The videos are gonNA shoot the emails that you're gonNA write the copy that you're gonNA write on the actual website. The content is gonNA take some time so make sure you a lots of time for that because I would say all in all the content for me of any given funnel take me about three. Today's about four or five hours on each day. If I'm doing it all myself Luckily I have a team and you know we have connor. WHO's or great content writer and he helps me out Tremendously in these types of things rights are emails. That helps you copy and all that kind of stuff. I should the videos. But it's GonNa take a chunk of time for the content because that's really what's going to sell your funnel or sell whatever you're trying to get them to opt in for the premium or even the actual product when you sell so this is what's going to take the time time you can't get around that no Safra's going to build your own video for you all software into right the emails for you to convert properly for your business and brand but you can save time with tools like like funnels and Lepage's When it comes to the page creation

"If you're going to be heading to the local mountains to ski or snowboard there's a new warning that you should be aware of this study cautions helmets do not provide complete protection for skiers and snowboarders from a surgeon from Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center well to ski injuries over an eight year period they found skiers wearing helmets were less likely to have skull fractures but were more likely to suffer severe injuries including bleeding in the brain researchers believe the discrepancy could be due to the fax gears wearing helmets were more likely to take risks on the slopes or were more experienced and thus likely to ski more difficult trails the study's authors said they want to take a closer look at the issue in part because over the last decade head injuries have doctor Klein despite a doubling in the rate of helmet use Bob Brill cannot since

Went from a bachelors back to an associates. In game production. So. We learned the basics of everything that goes into making a game. Things like design arts animation programming all that fun stuff. and. From there actually was a QA tester to K-. If you've ever played the game, x Com. You're welcome. I mean I was just the tester but. Actually not the funnest job, but What what is quickly because I know that's a lot of people when they wanted to get into sports or wanted to in the gaming. Gaming particularly. Yes, cigarettes entry level it like the dream job right? Yeah, yeah, and I! I was imagining like Grandma's boy. Everyone just sitting around playing video games all day high fiving each other. But? It's basically you're you're playing. A broken piece of software. Over and over. For eight hours a day. Minimum. There's lot of overtime. And you're you're looking for bugs and logging the bugs. Wow, that sounds thrilling is grueling. Prefer too late to the game comes out. Yeah Yeah. And then. From there action went to t h Q, which is now defunct. Publisher for for Video Games. They were up there with like EA Knack Division things like that. I was doing trade marketing there, which is like retail marketing, so we worked a lot with. basically like physical stores for the marketing that goes on in there like you know these big displays in the store, or you know how to position the game on the shelf and things like that. It was a mix of that as well as trade show coordination, which is really fun I. Really Liked doing the trade show stuff. There's a lot of moving parts. So I got to flex my project. Management skills there That's where I learned a lot of those skills and. You get to travel a lot. which was superfund fun. There would be like six months out of the year where it's just like nonstop travel going around the country even got to go to whistler. Canada, which is like Super Nice. Snowboarding slash ski resort town. That was really really cool and I found out that Canadians are just way way more active than. than all of Americans every day there, let's go bungee jumping and. Let's. Let's go skiing and snowboarding and let's. What is it called? Let's go zip lining unlike. Anita NAP. Yeah, I think Austrailia goes to whistler to work on the mountain. So many Soviet, my friends throughout like this, a high school and college years ended up going to whistle to like train people. Get to work out the lift operators or trade. kind of stuff. So. Yeah, you make a lot. Australians there as well. How did you get into product management specifically? Well. As well with a lot of product managers. That was kind of something that. Is Not something necessarily planned on. Something I kind of fell into and then fell in love with it. So basically I was at. A Marketing Company for beauty products. In their digital department, for like their websites and everything and I was doing what they called I was digital producer. is mostly because they were a TV company. They made a lot of infomercials. That's their bread and butter and where they came from. Then they introduced. They found out about this thing called the Internet and. You know. Put their products on the websites and everything and they were just like you like you coordinate and. Developers and all these people to build stuff. Oh, you're your producer digital producer your digital producers. But it became clear pretty quickly that like for this company to succeed and grow. You need to embrace this whole. Internet thing. It's not going away. So they decided to get really serious and build out this department and and start to treat this department and the rest of the company more like a Internet company like an e commerce company. And so that entailed redefining some roles so one day they were like. Your product manager now and I was like what is i. don't even know what that is. So I looked it up and I did all his research and. Along with my fellow digital producers now recently product managers. And it was really cool like it. Like opened up this whole world I didn't even know was there at the time. And I. Remember One of my my co workers. He's like. This whole product management thing this is this is a really big deal like this is a huge step forward for us like take this very seriously and so I did and I studied the hell out of it. You know trained myself on a lot of best practices and things like that reading books, articles and Talking to people and was actually able to help. Build out the product management discipline. there. Since I seem to be. One of the folks that cared. To do so and. Yeah just. Being able to learn and teach these things and then apply them in real life. was just so cool and it's one of those jobs that like. You can see the results with with numbers and everything and you can. You can gauge success. And I mean that's how I got started. And then from there I went to that that learning company I was telling you about would that have made sure product management organization already in place and. was able to learn a lot more there

"snowboarding" Discussed on The Dave Gram Show on WDEV

"So we also work with I think Adam touched on it earlier, but we work with the governors conference on or physical fitness council to make learn to packages really affordable for kids learning to ski and many of our ski areas. I'd say the majority work with their local schools to bring school kids up, you know, on Thursday or Friday afternoon for a multi week program. So I would say, you know, there are a number of ways to stave on and trying to get into the sport little bit less. Expensively Ataman, Molly actually, I'll start with Molly on this one. We haven't talked about snowboarding, and I know that, that is a. Obviously an important activity for, for a lot of the resorts. How much of an impact does this have is, as just sort of being a slice of the ski economy in Vermont? What by scary? But and when we say, ski area, we say ski as sort of the, the term for both sports, which I know some snowboarders like offense up. But so just put that out there writing. I think as the proper skiing, and riding, and you could say skiing and riding areas, too, I suppose. However, so, but the general the general statistic is about eighty twenty I would say or it might be a little bit higher. At some areas. I've seen it up to upwards of twenty five percent at some ski areas. Okay. So borders to fierce. Yep. Eighty twenty eighty percents twenty percents. No borders. Okay. That's what I that's what I thought would would be the statistical breakdown roughly there. And, and are there some resorts where where there's any, I don't know, raised eyebrows, or, or other expressions of preference, here, how's that work? We'll certainly mad river Glen stand out because they don't they don't allow snowboarding there. And there are only number area that does not allow it and only one of several in the country, actually, that don't allow snowboarding, but I would say, no boarding, very, very mainstream and so much so that, you know, you're now getting the kids that grew up, snowboarding transitioned over to snowboarding from skiing are now raising their own kids, and so starting them off as. Is a snowboarder, maybe not as skiers which traditionally, you know, I think you see you saw people start out a skiers and then progress into snowboarding, and then you see people that that's which back and forth, but I know our partner Burton has put a lot of resources into trying to bring that next generation along, and helping those families things like the regular park and Wrigley technology, which is that is, you know, co-ord- that will attach to special snowboard created four children. So that it makes it easy for instructors, or parents to, you know, get them into the sport by towing through some, you know, small terrain elements so they get the feel of it. So you're seeing some innovation like that, and they are taking out to the schools as well to try to help grow the sport. It's good for for everybody. Let's take a couple of callers our last few minutes here. Wade from is on the line. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. It's way from northeast slopes. So Hello to your guest. Skiba on how we doing. Only raider reiterate right down the list from from the time. Your guest started down through and, and we are if you're not familiar with northeast slopes. We are just microcosm of the ski industry. We are all volunteer run right from the president all the way down to the to the beginner slope rope tow operator, and everybody just does it out of the, the love of their heart for the sport of skiing. And our percentage of the four point two million skier visits. Vermont decipher is out to zero point zero zero zero seven one percent. No that I mean that's absolutely mirrors talking about. We had a twenty percent increase in ridership. We had a twenty percent increase in, in gross income, and profits and and fifty percent increase in in smile ability for for the season that we had because we are all natural snow. We have no snow making. And so you're like this is something we really depend on. We just take them as they come back in was it fourteen fifteen was a bit of a disaster. But we survived it. We don't have a lot of overhead. And we got to rope does, and a and a t bar and are, are places very conducive to that twenty or twenty five percents snowboarders because it's a very wide open slope. And we are finding that people are coming back to some of the smaller ski areas, especially at sixty three year old, you know, radio hosts that want to get back into it. That needs a little crooked a little fixing up, but now are much more conducive to getting back into skiing. All right. Your guess, agree with that, that manufacturers now are just making, you know, the wide wide planks they're much easier to ski, they're much easier control. They're much easier on the joint. Absolutely. Yeah. Takes a lot less energy to initiate a turn on the new equipment than it did. If you are skiing, you know, if you haven't skied since the nineties, he definitely should try the new equipment and wait. I'm so glad that you call them. Because areas like the northeast Globes are so important. So the sport, you know, small community hill, if people are we're talking about the school programs reporting it locally. We have an off season event, which is a music festival, all of its profits go into our local, you've ski program and leasing equipment for kids at normally, couldn't have it and getting volunteer instructors, they'll never a day week for that, you know that six weeks during the middle.

An Investigation Into The Opioid Epidemic

"Chang journalists Beth Macy covered every facet of the opioid crisis as a reporter for the Roanoke times in Virginia She embedded with, addicts trying to get clean she followed families grieving after overdose deaths interviewed heroin dealer sifted. Through drug studies in court documents and now she's written a book based on that reporting, it's called dope sick in which she attempts to capture the sheer scale of the crisis we have lost three hundred thousand Americans in. The last fifteen years to drug overdose deaths and, we're going to lose that many and just the. Next five Macy traces the root of the current epidemic to the mid nineties that's one Purdue pharma debut the blockbuster drug Oxycontin which was aggressively marketed as an addiction free painkiller. It was the strongest, version of an opioid painkiller that had ever hit the market and because it was a twelve hour time release doctors were told that this is absolutely safe and patients. Were told this is absolutely. Say that addiction is quote, exquisitely, rare, as one Purdue officials said that turned out to be hollow promise as Macy's on her reporting Dependence on Oxycontin and other. Painkillers laid the, foundation for the current heroine epidemic, she begins her story with a teenager named, Jesse who made the jump from pills to heroin and, didn't make it out alive because wanting these rambunctious kids who rarely napped as a little. Boy he would fall asleep with toy still in his hands and early on they put, him on ADHD medication he also had some football and snowboarding injuries when he was fifteen and sixteen and was prescribed opioid painkillers then. His mother isn't exactly sure at what point he, became hooked at what point he realized he was. Dope sick but he knew he could trade his ADHD medicine for the opioid pills and one thing led to another when the pills got harder to get because of doctors cracking. Down on prescribing that's, when the heroine started coming in his mother Christy she asked you she said she wanted to know how he got to that place and that becomes Sort of your books underlying question how do you try to answer, a question like that well I just tried to listen to her in. Here what her concerns were I. Mean she asked me to go interview the drug dealer who had landed in her town a few months, before jesse's death and who had. Increased the supply of heroin in that town but our main question was how is, my gorgeous handsome charismatic son nineteen years old never missed a day of. Work even up until the moment he died had missed a day of work how does he end up overdosed. On someone else's bathroom floor and she says I. Thought, it was just. Pills and, I heard that over and over she thought it was, quote just pills What's compelling about this book is, you come at it from all sides, you spend hours with a drug. Dealer named Ronnie Jones who ran one of the largest heroin? Rings in the, mid Atlantic region how did you, coax Ronnie to open up to you. About why he did what, he did You have, a story, to tell to and I also interviewed, his brother who was a. Very successful rap recording artist and producer and you know. He had tried so many times to help Ronnie when he would get out of prison and jail from his former, incarceration stints and Ronnie just could never. He you know having this early felon on his record he can never go legit he tells me he tried to over and. Over again he tried to start his own business in this little town that he landed in to work in the chicken plant and no one would rent, to him. And he also is not quite willing to, take responsibility for the dust that his supply may have eventually caused. In that community that's what struck me when I. Was reading the section about Ronnie because he kind of rationalized his business. As providing a service that he was offering heroin discount price he was saving people that trip to Baltimore which which would be. Much more dangerous to be much more dangerous it was like he was doing something of value To the community is the way he looked at it he. Said my hair on doesn't have federal in it You know he was. Kind of proud of that but Ronnie story illustrates how. Little we do for felons trying to reenter our society we don't make it. Easy for them, to get, jobs they often come out and they only fines and he tries. To go, legit he ends up, you know he starts out selling weed again which he had been selling before but meanwhile, since, he's. Been imprisoned this opioid thing has exploded, and somebody tells him in the break room. Of Georgia's chicken hey man if you wanna make the real money you need to be bringing heroin in. Connection he starts bringing in it in bulk in, from Harlem. And overnight as as the prosecutors, still the story I think there's a little more, nuance than. This but overnight they say the town of Woodstock Virginia goes from having a? Handful of heroin? Users. Thomas hundreds what do you make of the federal government's response to the crisis so far under this administration yeah so President. Trump said he was going to declare a national emergency And several months ago he declared, something that sounded like a. National emergency but was actually a public health emergency which. Released no new funds are no new with authority and again with one hundred. And forty five, people a, day dying of this we need to as one person in the. Book says, with Zico we sent, helicopters we need to send helicopters and what I believe we need is more across the, board, access. To medication assisted treatment and which study, after study shows is the best way to. Help somebody with opioid use disorder prevent an overdose death and I realize there was so much disagreement about. What the what treatments should be I mean you, talk about. Buprenorphine for example which is an, opioid itself and how it could be effectively incorporated, into treatment. Programs but there's a lot of resistance to that why is that most of? The treatment centers? In. America believe in abstinence only care all the people that I was Following on the. Ground in Roanoke Virginia and elsewhere including Jesse my football player up in the Woodstock area they were all being sent. At great expense to their families to these very expensive abstinence only centers and when they get, out they're opioid naive, because they haven't been taking it and then when they relapse which most of them. Do that's, when they're the most, vulnerable to, overdose and die are you worried that the public and maybe even policymakers are reaching. A point of fatigue when it comes to. Stories about opiates the way the public has reached a, point of the, teak about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan I have to tell you I reached a point of. Fifty myself I, put a Google alert. On opioid epidemic when. I, first started working on this book, almost three years, ago and, there were so many articles I couldn't even. Read them all I mean there are scores of articles every day but they each of them only. Deal with a little piece of something going on right now and my goal. With this book was not, to just show you how, we got here and what it's gonna take to get. Out of it but also to inspire people to care and I really hope that that's what I've done that Macy is author of the new book dope sick thank you very very much joining us thank you so much also

"snowboarding" Discussed on Cleared Hot

"I hated that as I was seeing these mountains change and realizing that my footprint and and the resources, and you know what the it got harder to justify burning that much gas to go snowboarding, don't you say change or just talking about what they would look like year after year, the snow starting to really. You know, see climate change, take effect on these areas that snowboarding and and my snowboarding was was at was part of that problem. And then I really got. I started having this craving to not want to go back to my hotel room at the end of the night. And it was, and it was a really big turning point for me and it was terrifying as actually in it's funny, the things that have kept me up more at night is not this like serious mountain. I'm going to snowboard, but these changes or decisions I've made in life. So. The anxiety of like it was very funny when I and I told my sponsors as very honest, I'm like, hey, I'm making these big changes at that point. I was thirty snowboarding thirty years old is technically kind of the that's the equivalent of like eighty years old and pro snowboard years masters category. Well, your master's and you're kind of like, this is probably my last contract and I'm like, I'm going to do this on my own way. I have this path. I want to go on all that that ecosystem films and photographers and riders. None of them came along with me on that a loss of sponsors on it, which I was totally comfortable with. And I figured there'd be the smog group of people that like these films, but I- largely figured I would was kind of autumn my on the way out of being in the spotlight being in magazines. Stuff. So the equivalent of with helicopter we film eight lines day on foot. We were lucky to put three film lines down in a month of being out there. I don't know if people listening, we'll have an appreciation for less. They go watch some of your films your when you say hiking or on foot, right? Just go. Yeah, I'll put a link to all of them. You need to go watch to get an understanding because there's some hiking and on some on foot stuff. It'll make you sweat watching it and the distances not like you're talking one hundred yards. You're talking miles. Yeah. And it's it's funny because you know along the lines when I started protect our winters a couple years prior to this. Which is foundation focused on slowing down climate change. But my friend, you know, my friends and these people working with, you know, kind of under their breath or like, wow, man, this he's taken this environmental stuff really far and they jokingly be like, how's that hippie snowboard film come in. What they didn't realize is we're like seventy five miles from the closest road camped out underneath the biggest mountains and lines that I had ever tried to snowboard and I was my goal was going if if I can figure out this foot powered stuff and how to hike these things, I know have ninety five.

Lululemon's Chip Wilson made billions by changing how we dress

"It used to be that the clothes you wore to the gym. We're like the absolute worst clothes you on the radio t. shirt. You got for free at some event sweatpants with your high school logo, the kind of short shorts Dr j. would've worn on the past couple court. Anyway, most of the payroll was cotton-based. Baggy didn't look so great. And honestly, nobody really cared. You had one job to do which was to sweat at the gym, but at some point in the past ten or fifteen years, all of that changed because severally the clothes you war to work out. Also the clothes you wear to the grocery store or at a restaurant or even at work. So for better or worse, people were wearing their gym clothes outside of the gym on purpose and this trend it was called at leisure and chip Wilson. He was one of its pioneers, the brand he built out of his house in Vancouver. Is now worth more than fourteen billion dollars. Now, before I go on, let me just address the elephant in the room ship has said some things that are well had I put this rude and Borish he's put his foot in his mouth. On several occasions, he's embarrassed the company and you will hear about some of that later on in the show, but he's also an open book and open to getting grilled all about his life. He's not a cautious media trains soundbites guy, which is in part what makes him interesting because that's sort of how chip grew up without any pretension middle class kid and Calgary Canada. Chip was athletic. He played hockey and football. His dad taught phys Ed at the local high school, and his mom was a seamstress. She lived for it. It's we're total passionless. She tried to make clothing for the kids, but of course we didn't. We'd never liked what she made for us. But you know if I want to spend time with my mom. It had to be foot in the solar. So did you learn how to? So like from an early age? I can definitely so, but more so I think it was working with the butterick patterns in watching my mum, lay them down on the fabric and then and then how she moved them into his them in order to save fabric. And I always say how important that is because once I got into big production and you'd lay fifty to a hundred layers of fabric down when you can save even five, six, seven inches of fabric, it can mean thousands of dollars before chip would go on so and design clothes for living. He actually got his first real job at an oil company working a grueling, but incredibly lucrative job on the Alaska oil pipeline for almost two years. How much do you walk away with how much can well interesting in today's dollars probably about six hundred thousand and it was, but one hundred seventy five thousand American is amazing. Amazing. You were like. Nineteen. This cash, and that's simply because it was all of this money to work the Alaska. Well, by blood, I guess. Right? And but I, you know, I traded my life in for money. I mean, there was no girls. There was nothing there except for you know, you work. So I always wonder, you know, if everyone got that opportunity with, they have made the same thing out of it. I did pretty good. You're eighteen nineteen or twenty with a bunch of cash. So what did you put you do the money? Well, at all, had three goals, Alaska when stolen my own house by the age at twenty to be in my own business by the age of thirty and retired by forty and retirement meeting that I was doing exactly what I wanted to do so. So I did. I bought a house and then I finished up my degree and I worked for an oil company. And this isn't company back in Calgary, right? Because you moved back there some, right. And I guess in like the late seventies right, pretty much around the time you graduate. Culture or you start to make shorts like baggy shorts from in? Yeah, because I didn't. You know. You have to get it what it was like at that time, men were very short shorts that were very, very tight. You know, you only have to look at movies from from the late seventies to get that kind of picture. And and they made a lot of sense to me because I had very big legs and I was, I think, because I was working out three times a day, I was always in constant sweat, and the idea of wearing shorts fulltime was very appealing to me. And. And so you and these were like flower printed like loud, Hawaiian. Like trader Joe's like those shirts. Like that's what the shorts looked like. Yeah, exactly. But you know, we have to see it in a context that there was nothing like that before. Everything else was that era of Brown rust off color, okra yellow, like solid colors. There was no brightness in the world at all that time. So that was a radical look. So I started because I couldn't get loud flowered prints in two thousand. Meters, which is kind of what a person needs to go into business. I started doing what my mom did. She quilted fabric, so I would get masses of different types of patterns of fabric, and then I would
