Is the Republican Wave Building Fast?
"Which means the business of the house. It goes nomos. Where is my article here? Yes, there it is. By Chris Solis, the Republican wave is building fast. With just over 5 months before the 2022 midterm elections use, that's where they're wrong. It's not 5 months voting begins in four months, actually. Since we have voting month in America, it's kind of this perpetual voting season. On Thursday, the cook political report, Amy Walter, a nonpartisan handicapping service, moved ten of its house races in favor of Republicans and adjust that its GOP gains in the fall upward between 20 to 20 to 35 seats. Given that Biden's approval rating is underwater and dozens of districts he carried in 2022, any Democrat sitting in a single digit Biden seat or Trump seat is that severe risk and even a few seats and that Biden carried by ten or 15 points could lose. Crystal is a rights at CNN dot com, the confluence of these predictions are built on several historical trends that have been predictive over decades. The first is that midterm elections tend to be bad for the president's party. Since World War II, the average seat loss for a president's party in the midterms of 26, I think Republicans are going to far exceed that.

The reality of this current political moment is that things appear to be getting worse for Democrats, the closer we get to the election, fears of a wave washing away even incumbents previously considered safe, now seems entirely justified.

I taught I helped teach. I worked with a playwright at Rikers Island in their incarceration facilities. And I work within mates and then the playwrights would help them write plays and then we as actors would come and show them the process of the actor and do readings and so on and so forth and these plays were riddled with curses, right? These are all kids who have just been denied denied denied who are angry, angry, angry and so all they could spit on on a page is after this and have this and have this. And I remember distinctly when I was doing those programs is watching the playwright find a way to let them know that look, this word doesn't mean as much if you say it's 700 times, but if you never say it and then you say it, it hits in a certain way. And I thought to myself, and I just remembered that from my teaching artist years and I thought, okay, well, maybe that's what can happen is that I can just pull it away. So if, in fact, I do, right? You can do it. In fact, the producers, the writers, they say to me, he's got a curse right now. I go, great. I can do that. Because I haven't done it up until now. Right. Right, right.

It just means if I'm playing somebody who's working in a very hostile environment, I have to be able to go, okay, where was I? Oh, yes, I remember that time that I took my trip to Morocco and landed it for in the morning and had to find my way to my hotel to my Riyadh at four in the morning inside of a Medina in the heart of Morocco and I'd never been there and it felt dangerous. Right. It felt dangerous. Yeah. I have that experience. I have that reference. So I can reference that when I'm now sitting in a room playing a guy who does that. I have references of trying to convince people that if they don't do what I'm telling them to do, there will be some kind of consequence to pay. I have that reference. Right. So I use that reference. I need to be able to have some kind of reference. And in doing so, I layer that reference into the characters that I play. Yeah, and I've heard Ray Liotta, I think, said this for Goodfellas.

He's a good businessman. He's a very good, honest, straightforward businessman. And in doing so has to make some very difficult choices from time to time. And unfortunately, in the world that he does business in. The decisions he has to make are specifically for the world that he does business in. Draw that he has two these two, what would assume to be non in the world of his business characters? Draws him even more because he sees normalcy. He sees sort of a logical, legitimate, what has been not given to him in his world, which is legitimacy. He sees that. He sees the opportunity and being a smart businessman.

And then my dad sees him as somebody else and my friends see him as somebody else and I go great. I've been able to like James Earl Jones once said about acting. He said, you what you need to do is you need to have ropes that you shoot from your character out to every single person watching you. And then once all those ropes have connected everyone who's watching, you send the story through those ropes to those people. And what you hope is that what the story that that connects to that audience member is different than the rope that was connected to that one and that one. And that one, and so you give yourself a complete, varied, multi layered performance that gives the audience their own personal opinion about the character.

You played the FBI agent and you're on the other end right now and Ozark with Omar Navarro playing head of the Mexican drug cartel. Do you find and I tried to a perfect way to phrase this question? Have you found that being that FBI agent, you found ways you can effectively, you know, ways to portray the varro. In other words, being in the other end of the spectrum. Do you get ideas from playing that I don't want to call them a villain, but you know what I'm saying? You get ideas from other performances you've had and like, does that give you ideas?

I've heard dogs, you know, wine, but I just never had heard a sound come out of a dog's mouth like this. And I turned my partner, my partner, unhooked her seat belt, she jumped into the back of my truck, and I said, what are you doing? She said, I can't take it anymore. She unhooked him. And the crying stopped, and I looked in the rearview mirror, and he was curled in her lap. And I thought, and that's when I thought I was like, okay, I don't, I don't practice religious religion. I'm not a religious person, but I kind of went universe, anything higher power than who I am. I've gotten the message, this dog will live the rest of his life. In the best possible way he can. So that's the knucklehead. I didn't want to change his name too much because I didn't, I didn't want to go through the process of that. I know what that's like. They say it's an easy process, but for me personally, I didn't want him to feel he's already in a strange place. I didn't want to give him even more of a strange thing to have to relearn his identity. So I just took that and I chose somebody who I found him in Los Angeles. I was living in Los Angeles at the time of no longer there, but I thought, who is somebody that I believe stood up to adversity overcame tremendous amounts of pressure and backlash and all kinds of things that are awful that have occurred to our civilization and history and I thought, oh yeah, that guy.

Then you can build on top of it so actually a lot of what i've done has been look around fund what somebody else has done. That almost solves my problem take that and then build my own things on top of that apply to my problem. Say if we compare now to even ten years ago. I'd say it's much easier to do it now.

How many years of studying that you can do rudimentary things with a. Yeah that's a hard question If you come from a more traditional. Solis born health background It's going to take longer just because if you take a sport science degree for example usually there's no real programming component. So you don't learn from an early stage about the potential of computers and how to communicate with them. Because that's what we're doing here is. We're trying to train a computer to do it job for us. That's basically why we use So if you come from an it background. i would say go for it. Unites within a year or two. You can probably be building applications. Do you want them to do if not then. I think you've got to start at the beginning naturally. Learn the basics of of programming to figure out how to actually get the computers to do what you want. If you can't do that you know even if you find open source code that's promising if you don't have the ability to work with it and to build on it then you're not gonna get a working solution..

Those words are used but those are words that appear when you see them advertising You know whatever new toy they have that has a million different parts that aren't compatible and need upgrading. And you know it's a cash cow obviously and That's because there's no serious threat. No one at the pentagon would actually put up with this. If we had a serious threat on the horizon it would be about what is capable of getting the job done but we really don't face any potential and so it's it so it can just be a rate on the treasury. Well devil's advocate here. What about The idea that people value things more when they're just more expensive regardless of what the actual inherent value of the thing is as an example. You know you might care for a pair. Ray ends a hell of a lot more than you would you know cheap ten dollar para sunglasses. They pick up on a street corner vendors something like that. What what. what if we're just paying more so that we can care more about her stuff. I mean i think there's there's some some something to say for that. But i would just say that in this case lives are on the line right and it's not their money it's the public's money if you choose to spend that money on rayban because you wanna like signal your status or something or you just like paying more for stuff you feel better knowing that you paid a lot more than you needed to for something that could have gotten the job done a lot cheaper and i'm fine with that. I don't care great. You know your money but it's not their money. It's not their money and that's the prosecutor in live around long when you can't eject safely out of an airplane that's going get shot down if it gets into some kind of dogfight or skirmish which i knew. It wasn't designed for dogfighting. Gone the f thirty five too much for that.

"My name's zoe set a kiss ski. And i'm a senior electra. At the school of design at ut and a lot of my research is around how we can visually communicate ecological issues like climate change and biodiversity loss in a way that engages people in mexican think about action that they can take and ways that we could adapt to live differently for a more sustainable future. So what is comet fatigue. And why don't we feel it. Yeah climate fatigue and eko anxiety. This lots of tomes for these things And it's it's very real. I mean i feel a sense of grief and anxiety often in the research that i do But i think what's really important is starting to accept and engage with those feelings and not hide behind them feeling the feelings it seems straightforward but when we're experiencing such lodge ecological shifts at a rapid right. Zoe explains that. We must reckon with the inevitable. Greif of that experience in order to create change. One of the. I guess the the incredible moments for me. We call it a disorienting dilemma was. When i'd been overseas i was on a research trip overseas in november twenty nine and so i actually missed the start of the those horrific bushfires that blackened seve knee and i arrived at after a month of being away and as the plane flew into sydney.

Progressives Have Made No Progress - They've Only Made America Worse
"How are things getting better. Exactly heart diseases up. Eroticism is up mental. Health issues are up now. I'm not there. There's been a medical. Innovations praise got better better of course ability to detect detect tumors ability to treat alzheimer's those things have objectively improved over the last decade.

Cornell Professor Suggests Collusion by NEA Chapters in Lawsuit Against South Kingstown Mother
"Now with Mrs Solis received the motion. For the temporary restraining order and injunction yesterday. She asked if teachers unions bullying moms will be an everyday thing now. Okay? Cornell University law professor William Jacobson, whose legal Insurrection foundation Has filed similar public records request to the South Kingstown School district. Wrote Wednesday that the lawsuit makes little sense on its face, He said the district is not shy. About asserting exemptions, as evidenced by the hundreds of fully redacted pages. It turned over to Jacobson's foundation fully redacted. That means like page after page after page is just black, nothing And there's no reason to believe the information that concerns union qualifies as public records. Jacobson says his initial take That smells like collusion. The South Kingstown school district doesn't want to produce records and the union is helping them out. That's what he says. At least it looks like to him.

"One of my favorite journalist John Solomon, has website called just the news dot com One of his riders there. Guy named Greg Piper has a story. I can remember the day when we talk show hosts would use expressions like you're not going to believe this. Sadly, these days, we don't use that expression expression very much anymore.

Interview With Sarah Wilson
"Sarah welcome back to the podcast. How you doing all things considered that she passed in twenty. I'm pretty good of managed to kind of mold. My mindset intra-group place. Good and what's been key for you doing that. Well it's an attitude modal shift. It's about coming quite close. Grind new everything because we kind of has to from a physicality pointed year but also say i don't accepting the world's assets and during what al various antithesis of done during tough times and bunk down and refocus attention on allah chains which what are united out to be more important things like loved ones and shot and just noticing. Things are being probably more discerning. Yeah thank descendants and deliberateness probably cheap things. Nothing on. I haven't thought about this until you just asked me out but that certainly not being doing out cut and the the wonderful thing is is it's actually being the shift a wanted to do anyway and nothing forced into which funneled into it and i wonder how many other people going through this are going through similar thing where you know. It was time to maybe make some adjustments in reprioritize. And now this is. This is forcing things. Stop for people. I call kinda the great reveal and it's of covid uncover a redundancies pop from anything else. Try that just no longer service. And we've had to kind of look at them. I mean i don't know is it's a sign over there in the northern hemisphere shorties replay magnified somewhat than. What are these down here in australia. But during the whole kind of shutdowns will be head. He people have these big shiny. Black full will drive sitting in their driveways doing nothing. Solis things that i'd put money and to suddenly didn't really count. We had to racist bunch of things. It's good from that point. And i think a lot of people have been surprised that i and very climate activists and and people who are in the values community has been trying to spread many many years old. Got illustrated gossip dumped on all of this in all at once. And even even the inequalities that i think became manifest during this period. They needed to be outed. I mean that was a gift in itself. You know seeing how i'm stanley paid nece and from one work is often with bankers and stockbrokers who all of a sudden didn't serve a purpose but also singing in the racial inequalities. I'm not that surprised that the black lives matters. Issue surfaced is such a broad way during olive. Fits those scab taken. And we're having to deal with the. Wade's and that's a great thing. And i think a big part of this in something you talked about in. The new book is dealing with uncertainty. There's so much uncertainty even in the middle of this pandemic were. We're not through this yet. We're still in the middle and figuring things out so there's a lot of uncertainty and that's that's inherent life general. But i think this. This is zoomed in and focusing people in on that and making people figure out a way to deal with that in a healthy way. Yeah i mean. I think what it done system once again as a reveal it as the reveal. It's revealed how ill-equipped we are to deal with uncertainty as united. Just you know talk about this in quite a bit of detail. Part of the book is set it up so that i try to articulate what the issues are why we are where we are so i will nearly capitalism out consumption addiction and then the lonely and fragmentation but one of the things i talk about is how we have become a society. Couldn't ourselves from a whole bunch of discomfit right including uncertainty. So i use the example of how we order a pizza seraing on an at. We don't make enough to sit down. Go wonder how long what hates is going to take because the app tells stride. There's no delayed. Gratification is nice spended knowingness we have cocooned ourselves from all the discomforts acceptable real life. Because real loss when it hits us is uncertain. You get what you want. There's a whole on knowingness this itchiness. Louis says is frustrations disappointment. Manage to kinda seductively convince ourselves. We don't have to deal with those things apps and coal centers and we complain about everything the whole karen's nominee on that kind of thing. Where where this is all happening. But of course when a real disaster hit over real uncertainty strike says with got nine muscle with mental grit and resilience. That's what i identifies pot of the core and zaid the global anxiety that west kneeling at the moment comes from that we are ill-equipped and so my book tries to in the course of a couple of hundred pages make up the lost ground and really rally people to get onto re appreciate abuse of getting resilient to this stuff
Business Wars: Behind the scenes with David Brown
"Business. Wars is a lot of fun. It's when i first heard that this might be a possibility. Someone said the thing about business. Is that quite often. We think of wall street or the financial centers of london nerve. Tokyo shanghai but sort of solis sort of dry. The fun in business is always that human element and so the founder of wonder. Which is this podcasting company based in los angeles. He'd come up with this idea. What if you could kind of go deep into the heart of some of these great battles like coke versus pepsi nike versus adidas or nintendo vs. Sony your net flicks versus hbo even before that. You probably didn't have blockbusters. Did you have blocked jason lately. Yeah okay well so there you go. So everyone kind of connects to these major brands. Right and in fact a lot of us feel very think about how you have apple people windows people. I mean we invest a lot of our identity into these brands. Will that i think is what business wars is all about. We're sort of looking at these battles between these titans. A lot of these brands that have become household names. And we're looking at it from the inside out so sometimes you get a sense of how. The ceo or the entrepreneur started up a business because they wanted to get rich or they just wanted to get someone's attention sometimes. It's because they want to beat the other guy you know. They think they can do computers better. You think about the steve jobs story for example is those kinds of stories and when we started to go deeper and started to do some the early research on the program we realized. Wow it's calm surprising that this hasn't been mind more. You think about the recent movie. What is it the movie about. Ford and ferrari in a way. That's a kind of business where unto itself and it's so cinematic and there are these larger than life characters behind the scenes and those are the kind of characters we try to bring out in business wars usually at six episodes over the course of about three weeks or so with two episodes coming out every week and each of them has about thirty minutes long and at the end of these six episodes quite often will spend another thirty minutes doing an in depth interview with someone perhaps someone who wrote the book on this particular business war or maybe someone who knows a lot about the industry that kind of thing. That's what business was is all about. How did you come to host one of the most popular business. Podcasts wasn't an idea that hernan lopez the founder of came with or was it. Something you suggested it was it was actually not neither a. We didn't know each other he used to work for. You probably heard of the fox networks. I think there's a famous australian behind some of that famous. Yeah well he used to work for the international arm of that and he saw what was happening with podcasts. Several years ago and so he'd come up with this idea. Well i used to be the host of a program on public radio here in the states. it's called marketplace. Still on the air and it's a national public radio style program and it's heard across the country and i was based in l. a. And while there. I made a lot of great friends and rub shoulders with a lot of really terrific producers and one of those producers ended up at wondering in la. And i had since moved from los angeles to austin texas which is why more met now. And one day. I get this call. And it's from one of the former producers at marketplace and she says. Hey i'm working over wondering what's wondering whether it's a script podcast platform and my boss. I told him about you because he has this idea for business wars. Would you be interested in talking with him about it. He got on the line and he said i'll send you over a script and maybe we can just Just wanna hear you talk. And so we started talking and he said well. If you'd like it we'd love for you to do it. And it all happened very quickly. And i didn't really know what i was getting myself into. I figured maybe this will be a three or four shows and so now here it is about to two years at a couple of months into it later and We now have gosh. I don't even know how many episodes out there now but a lot
DHS chief claims some deported parents "have chosen to separate" from their kids
"The status of children separated from their parents at the US border, the media focused on a headline. Five hundred, forty, five kids, and they can't find their parents. It was so sad it came up during the debate Biden, referred to what is criminal Well, we turn to the National Review One of the few main one of the few media outlets that will actually look a little further into the story. And even trump didn't really answer the question because I don't think he knew how to handle the question, but he didn't read the report. Well. As they right here. There's a couple of numbers that have received significantly less attention to most news reports about the ACLU's legal fight. Four hundred, eighty, five, the number of children whose parents have been located and zero. The how many of those parents have sought to have their children returned home? That's the true story here these four hundred eighty-five parents have gone back to their home country they got deported they got deported and they didn't want their kids to go with they have been contacted by Homeland Security and they have refused to take their children back. They don't want their kids sent back to the home country. They want to wait and see if there's some way they can get into the United States to be reunified with their children. Go the I mean this is this is big because. The. Way The story was presented. It was like Oh are incompetent solis government leaving these children stranded without their parents can't find their parents know they've been actively looking for the parents but many of them are in foreign countries but they have found four, hundred, eighty, five of them chase jennings is a spokesman for the Department of Homeland. Security. Any says the simple fact is this after contact has been made with the parents to reunite them with their children many parents have refused at the four, hundred, eighty, five children. That, we've been able to contact. They have yet to identify a single family that wants their child reunited with them in their country of origin. That for family values how where's that for a headline? On. Line an ACLU lawyer by the name of legal aren't said well, yes. It's not because his parents don't want to be reunited with the kids they overwhelmingly do. It's just that they don't want to be reunited in their home countries well, rather they want to be reunited in the United. States
Upgrade your tech every year?
"Find out more after the show. It's always great hearing from your fans even when they want you to shut up. I got a lot of nasty tweets and emails this weekend in response to my piece about surrendering Apple Samsung and Google, and just admitting that perhaps it's best to just upgrade every year. I mean the new phones are so good. You'll pay about five hundred dollars a year swap them out if you resell the latest version. For the new iphone twelve I get a markedly improved camera. A screen said to be less susceptible to cracking spitfire processor and all in all a sweeter design. I think it's worth five hundred dollars a year to get the latest and greatest even pandemic but you know it's all relative and it's about your priorities. Others didn't exactly agree with me. Here's an email from an unsigned fan quote wake up to your surroundings, Graham are you happy writing terrible articles with no basis people are laughing at you they make fun of your work because it's Solis in inconsequential. It's amazing how people can get upset over an article Another responded quote. Do you really believe what you wrote? I never send emails to columnists but this annoyed me enough to look up your contact information. The article had no basis in reality. Okay, your basic troll insults the one point that did come through for many however was that I was advocating something that harm the environment quote your justification for why you need to upgrade a one thousand dollar plus phone. Every year is environmentally and financially harmful and ignorant said one said another well yeah. Of course, it's better for the industry in the economy to force people to buy a new phone. Every year who cares about how wasteful that is or how most people can't afford to choose to do something like that unquote. So let me respond I never suggested tossing the phones away never, but instead to trade or sell them to let others use the phones there are many sites that by back phones for cash like decluttering Gazelle and apple in the wireless carriers offered trading value on new purchases. In both instances the phones get refurbished and used again usually in developing countries what about longevity aren't the phone's built to last of course there's no reason you couldn't keep using phone from three or four years ago maybe even older, it'll do. Okay. I like the new advancements in features you may not care. That's fine. But there are situations where your old phone may be cracked. The battery may be falling apart. You can't charge it as well as they used to and websites won't load because time has moved on and new software won't work with them anymore case in point I spoke to someone complaining that her zoom sessions kept breaking and the sound quality was poor.
Former Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis endorses Biden at 2020 DNC
"Joe Biden has a plan to help working families and small businesses. Our next speaker healed us. Elise worked alongside him as secretary of Labor to make sure that there were good American jobs and that Americans were safe on the job. To hear more about the Biden Harris economic plan, please welcome Hilda Solis. Hello. I'm Hilda Solis. The day, Vice President Biden swore me in as secretary of labor was one of the proudest moments of my life. My parents realize they've achieved their American dream. Because the daughter of two blue collar immigrants would make history and give voice to people just like them. American workers need a fighter now, more than ever, and Joe Biden is that person because he has done it before, and I've seen it firsthand. He and President Obama made it easier for home care workers to organize. They extended overtime pay to more than four million workers. They say the automobile industry and a whole lot of good union jobs with it. And when millions of families lost their homes. My friend from California Senator Kamala Harris took on the big banks and won. But because of Donald Trump's failures, we must once again rescue a sinking economy. Millions of Americans are out of work and communities of color are the hardest hit. Millions of a central workers are putting their lives at risk with little protections and millions war are just playing tired. That's why Joe Biden Kamala Harris actually have a plan not only to recover what we lost, but to improve upon it. Toe build back better, creating five million good union jobs by bringing back supply chains to America that's building back better. Creating millions of jobs by investing in clean energy that's building back better and making sure that working families can't afford childcare. That's how we build back better. So let me borrow and slightly edit something, Joe Biden said at my swearing in when it comes to expanding the economy for all people, No one. No one is going to be a stronger voice than our next president Joe Biden.
Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Susan Rice
"Joe Biden is believed to be getting close to naming his running mate in this year's presidential election. One of those on Biden's short list for the job is Susan Rice. She has deep experience as an ambassador and in national security, but not as a candidate. NPR's Don Gani reports. Susan Rice has a ready answer when asked about the possibility of being Joe Biden's pick for vice president, whether I'm his running mate, or I'm a door knocker. I don't mind this was on NBC's Meet the press, and I'm going to do everything I can. To help get Joe Biden elected him to help him succeed is president. Her resume is deep. Rhodes scholar, State Department ambassador to the U. N. Obama's national security advisor, rise His vice presidential prospects gain strength as calls for Biden to name an African American woman grew during this summer's black lives matter. Protests And she is known to be tough. This is from an appearance on NPR last fall, My dad had a mantra that comes from his experience growing up in the segregated South, and in the twenties and thirties and Serving and segregated Air Force A Tuskegee during World War two. Hey, always told me and my brother don't take crap off of anybody. Of all the potential Biden running mates. None can match rice on foreign policy. But to many her inclusion on the short list is curious because that skill set duplicates Biden's own strength. He has deep foreign policy experience from his decades in the Senate. There is one big gap in Rice's resume. She has never held elective office never been a candidate, veteran Democratic strategist Patti Solis Doyle says in 2020. That particular shortcoming may not matter at all, given how campaigning has changed under the pandemic. No arousing public speeches, no handshakes at the local diner That's not happening anymore. And so that skill is not as valuable as it was, Say four years ago. The pandemic also complicates the vetting process. Those one on one get acquainted meetings between Biden and potential nominees will certainly be different. But Biden already knows Rice well, including from hours and hours together in the Oval Office during the Obama years. If there's one person that knows that Susan Rice has been in the room and can handle the pressure, it's Joe Biden. Joe Joe Biden has seen it firsthand. One certain line of attack Republicans will use against Rice. If she's on the ticket is Benghazi. That's the 2012 assault on a U. S diplomatic compound in Libya that killed four Americans. When it happened Rice one on TV and called the Assault an act of spontaneous violence that was later shown to be incorrect. All these years later, it remains a rallying cry for Republicans. In fact, here is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just this month talking about Rice and Benghazi on Fox News. She went on and made up a story about a video in a protest when she knew full well that this was a terror attack. In the end, multiple GOP led congressional enquiries into Benghazi uncovered no wrongdoing by the Obama administration. Susan Rice, meanwhile, is looking ahead early this year. She was on a panel and caution that if Democrats retake the White House, they'll need to respect institutions and show respect to their opponents. There will be

The banks were a bit slow to be able to set up websites that customers found it impossible to get to a to a human being or to find out where they stood whether their applications were going through and there was a general feeling that given that all of this was being done on the Internet the Internet companies might be better doing it than the banks were so relatively quickly. This program was opened up so that the eligible lenders included not only banks but also Internet companies Lake Pay Pal and quicken and square. Gotcha I mean. I feel like one of the questions about these lenders. And FINTECH companies and neo banks in particular is that in some ways they serve. Replace this idea of the Community Bank. Like do we have any evidence that they are or could be more inclusive than established lenders. I think they are in the if you applied for P. P. Loan from pay pal. Then your chances of guessing it. We're probably the same no matter who you were given that many of the people applying if not most of the businesses applying had no particular relationship with these Fintech to begin with now doesn't mean they're going to get that loans. It's far from clear that the ability of pay pal to get loans through the SBA system and get people. Funded is any greater than any other bank. But at least you can feel that you're on a level playing field if that's any. Solis which you probably isn't to be honest. Who is applying through? Let's say pay pal or square or into it. Who are these small businesses to a first Brooks mission? Everyone who didn't get a loan or wasn't able to get through when applying through that bank. Whatever the reason was if you haven't got your money it's not give up on your bank entirely but you say well. Maybe I can't get a loan through my bank. I should try a getting along with someone else and given the it's not difficult to apply through pay pal. Oh quicken intuit it. You May as well try if they come back to you and say hey you've been funded. Brin and you can take the money and if they don't it's no harm no foul and is there any evidence or will there ever be a way to tell you think whether they claim that these kind of like tech driven platforms are more nimble and better able to get your application through than a big bank the banks and the Fintech have all been extremely unhelpful? When people like you and me have been asking them for details about how many people try to apply. How many of those people who try to apply actually got their money those ratios on not public information than the information that the SBA has see you need to get that information directly from each one. And I don't think any of them are going to be releasing that data on the kind of apples to apples basis that we'll be able to make that determination. Is this an opportunity for these companies like if they are able to establish themselves as this type of lender or just do good by some small businesses is an opportunity for them to build a customer base down the road I think for about twenty four rows an opportunity to get some goodwill? I think the small business owners actually went to those places putting their applications and then didn't receive any money that some of that goodwill did evaporate. What's more of these companies? Aunt actually lenders at heart companies like paypal and square a much more based on payments on loans. And so. It's not clear that even if this did give them a foot in the door when it came to small business lending that something that they would really want to be right and it feels like certainly some of them have provided loans like cabbage are into it but the others haven't to think they're likely to discover that in fact. This is a terrible morass that they would like to back out of slowly. Small business loans were horrible thing to be in in general because small businesses so many things can go wrong is so difficult to really get under the hood and find out how credit worthy they are for. P. It's different because it's all guaranteed by the government so you don't need to spend too much time really underwriting the loan and understanding the business before extending the credit but if you want to actually lend money to small businesses as part of your business especially if you're doing unsecured and you're not you don't have access to cash flows which you can just S- ts to pay back the loan. Then yeah it's really Nali business where lots of lenders have become unstuck. And it's not clear that very many investors want these companies to get into that line of
The Speaking Opportunity We Have Right Now
"Right after I released the last episode that is when Corona Virus. Hit the reason you haven't heard from me on this follow up episode was because I wanted to wait just a minute to get a feel for what was happening because it seems like what's happening changes daily. I can't give you a lot of accurate information. As far as how corona virus will affect your business other than sane. Things will come back around. They might be different but they will come back. Eventually we will start getting together again eventually. People are going to want that human connection they want it now. But we've got these substitutes. We've got podcast like this one. Like your podcast. Maybe blog post email newsletters but speaking at least in person that is not one of those things that we have now however because it is coming back. If you're ready for it you are going to be in great shape. So let's get you ready. I want you to think about the stock market in the nineties. Everybody was making money. But you had to have money in order to make money. If you weren't able to invest in the stock market in the nineties you couldn't take advantage of it and in order to invest. You had to do the work before the thing hit. They didn't know it was going to hit like it did. And that's what I'm trying to get you to do now. You can't remember the nineties. Maybe you weren't born yet thinking about real estate over the last few years the boom boom that we've seen in real estate over the last few years that same type of boom is going to happen for live events and speaking like. I said we're going to be ready to get out wherever you ready to see. People again and when that switch is flipped. You'RE GOING TO BE READY FOR IT. On the last episode grant covered a lot of ideas regarding speaking. And he's certainly done a lot more speaking than I have because speaking was his job for me speaking his way to spread a message. It's a way that I built my company. It is a way for me to get information out to people that I want them to know so I want to share some big ideas on speaking there from a little bit of a different perspective. This is from a guy who had a business has a business and uses speaking to grow that business built connection with people and to make money sometimes directly through the speaking sometimes. It's something related to the speech that I'm giving. Maybe I'm getting business directly from that speaking in. Sometimes it's just to expand my authority because when you come in like an expert you don't have to market as hard people come to you and you are able to charge more when you were seen as a celebrity in your business. So here's some big ideas on speaking from that perspective. Somebody who does speak a lot but does speak on a regular basis. By the way I had about four events cancel within a week after Corona virus hit a road warrior. But I'm doing this on a pretty regular basis and have been doing this for awhile and that brings me to my first big. Id Ah you need to jump in with speaking and the way that you may be able to do that now just to get that training be ready for when that switch flips and we're ready to go back to live. Speaking is doing it via online broadcast via live broadcast that could be via zoom. Something like spreaker. If you're more of an audio person that lets you distribute your message live just like a broadcast radio show. And here's the point of why you WanNa do that. The only way for you to get better in front of a live audience is to get in front of a live audience. I started doing radio in nineteen ninety one and when I started it wasn't live on the air. I wasn't a jock. I was a production guy. I was doing documentaries. I was doing stuff where I will go out. Do Research Comeback to the tape room and it was a tape room. It was literally magnetic tape that I had to slice with a razor blade. Taped back together with tape. I was doing much like I'm doing but the process took a lot longer. I will go out into the field with Marantz tape recorder like a cassette tape recorder and it was good but it was still on cassette comeback. Put It on a real. That's when I would chop it up. Get the edits in anyway. It took a while for me to get that content out the content wasn't live but it did get me used to speaking. So if you're doing a podcast even if it's not live while the best way for you to get used to speaking is live the skills you are developing by doing something you edit later. That's still going to help you. But it's not a replacement for getting out and doing it. Live the transition for me to doing live. Eventually I moved up. I guess it was move up to live on the air. Play music going in and out of tracks. Sometimes I would do interviews but not like. I'm doing now so that was a different skill. Had the live thing but it didn't have the long form content that I'm talking about now with either speech or doing something like a podcast and that transition continued with getting in front of a live audience like where I could actually see them was getting on various panels. I was flying around the country going to a lot of music marketing events. This is back in nineteen ninety-five in the late nineties tons of panels. Sometimes I moderate them. Sometimes I would just beyond them and I did dozens of these things from south by southwest in Austin Texas to see him Jay in New York to really anybody who would have me. I remember doing at least a couple of events in Athens Georgia Indianapolis. There's something to West. Virginia I was going anywhere and everywhere that would have me and for me. That was easy because I was able to bounce my message off of what somebody had previously said or more or less conversation with the people who are on stage with me. If you've got a podcast you might be able to relate to this because a lot of beginning podcasters what do you do you have a co host. Yeah people that you're interviewing you like to bounce your message off of other people and it's not all on you to have one hundred percent of that content and that'll help you for eventually getting in front of a live audience but if you WanNa get good doing something in front of a live audience one. You've got to do it. You're probably going to fail. It's going to at least be a little bit rough. It's got to be just you the very first speaking presentation that I had. I think it was the late nineties. Remember it was in. Philadelphia is an old theater on arch street again. I was used to doing panels but I had one of these independent music events. She said why. Don't you come on up here? We're not doing panels? But you can speak and I think the reason why she did that was because she didn't want to fly a bunch of panelist in imagine this. You've got five or six of these sessions. Each of them has three. Maybe five people. You've got to fly those people and you've got coordinate with them first of all you gotta find him. Even that can get complicated getting somebody to fly across the country just to sit on a panel for one hour so she wasn't doing panels and you'll see this with a lot of live event. It's much easier to fill in event with single speakers. Then it is panelist and I never done. Solis Behemoth Four. But I've been on panels before and I've been doing conference calls. We used to do this thing via the phone. I will get on speak much like it was a radio broadcast people who are calling in also via the phone. They would listen to me at a book. At the time I was very familiar with the content but on the other hand I had no idea what I was doing or what it was actually going to be like and this event. It wasn't really organized. She didn't walk me through the process. I was good at the skills that I had. The event promoter just assume that I was going to be able to get up there and speak by myself. I wasn't luckily a friend of mine. The air guy named Eric Sievers. You may have seen some of his. Ted Talks read some of his books. He was in the music business with me at the time. So he and I got in front. This group together heeded the heavy lifting and by that I mean he shared the stage with me. I was doing as much talk in his Derek. Was We're going back and forth with each other? It was a cool event. It wasn't like I was just hanging there in the sidecar but having him there enabled me mentally to organize my thoughts. It gave me more confidence because there was more or less like a panel. And tell you this story to say this if you are nervous about getting in front of a crowd. This may be an option for you since that time. I have organized and promoted a lot more events than I've spoken ad and I can tell you that this happens all the time. People want to come in as a package deal. They want business partner. Sometimes they'll won a spouse. They want somebody up there with them on stage. It also happens on radio. People are nervous about their voice going into the airways. The are nervous about people hearing them and sounding like an idiot. So they'll bring in a friend. Hey I can bring in a band with me. Hey could bring in this guy that I'm working with. He's got an interesting story does it lend me your option somewhat. You're going to a live event. People might not want to fly in the second person. You might be on your own for that but it is an option it will get you in the game and it may build your authority in a different way than you could do it on your own
