"soper" Discussed on The Town Haul

"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the town hall as all move forward we have been stuck for like two and a half months now and it's really weird time in history but the town hall is staying dedicated to telling really important sustainability stories. And we're lucky. We get some really massive brands. This episode is one of those lucky ones. Today I'm actually joined by two guests. Jones enlisted were from National Wildlife Federation earlier in the year. Rubicon was named the official sustainability and tech partner for recycle mania of the competition under the management of the NWF but will get into all of that and enlists. Thank you both so much for being here today I've only done multiple jest episodes like once or twice so let's just establish a little bit of water for answering some of the questions. Honest truth besides my husband and my dog youtube or the only people. I've interacted with today so I'm a little over all of us to bumble words over each other so Liz let's start with you. Tell me a bit about your role at. Nwf A little bit about your professional time line and how you can got to where you are and then in that time line or in your story what do you think sparked passion for environmental sustainability in in Christie. You're on deck and I'd love to know the same free. We'll start with this. I am the director of Pre K. To twelve education for National Wildlife Federation. I have actually end with the fedaration for most of my career. I'm going into my twenty four th year and I really started off in a regional office and did a lot of regional education work and for the last eleven years have been focusing my efforts and the national level And really pushing forward the work that we do with schools and other informal education opportunities and community My background actually. My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology and forestry and I started off as a wildlife biologist but Kinda fun interesting fact is I found. I had a lot more fun topping and and I feel like I made a bigger impact talking with people within the community that I was doing my research in collecting data. You know like the nighttime Barstool chat where we were talking about. Grizzly Bear Habitat. And what it meant to you know Maintain and keep that habitat healthy and the ways people get involved so that that's somewhat how I moved from that into education and got my masters in education at in Oregon And then pretty much. Except for one other job with The Lake Champlain Basin Program doing watershed education. I've been working for WF And you know my my passion for this work. I I think really stems back from my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend every single summer and a place called a Greensboro Vermont which is in North East Kingdom of Vermont on Kathy Lake. It was my grandparents Cabin and my parents would just throw out the door every morning We'd be gone all day with the catching crayfish and swimming at night. We'd be catching lightning bugs and watching a shooting stars with my grandparents and it just it set the stage for my wanting to be able to pass this Passion for Nature and the environment and to also protect loved that Christie Europe. Sure yeah so I have been with National Wildlife Federation for several years as well. I think I'm going on. I started in two thousand three at National Wildlife Federation. So I guess I'm going on my sixteenth seventeenth year. I've worked in higher education program so I manage higher education programmes at National Wildlife Federation working with colleges and universities working with them to help them advance their efforts on campus Sustainability Renewable Energy Waste Reduction Habitat Restoration Green purchasing that sort of thing. And I've I've done that since the entire time I've been at NWS We also in our program here. We also help college students. Young professionals develop leadership skills and also learn more about career opportunity so career development to learn what their opportunities are in conservation field or their opportunities are in learning about sustainability and sustainability skill. So they can bring that to whatever a career field sector. They choose to go into after they finish school. So I believe you know similar to Liz. I grew up outdoors playing all the time spending all day in the summertime that we would be out as soon as the sun was up and become home. You know. As soon as it was starting to get dark I grew up camping. You know we would go to the closest national park to win where we grew up was Shenandoah National Park here in Virginia and I still live in this area in that area. So we we go to the park all the time. It's beautiful and so I take my little girl there as well So just growing up. We spent a Lotta time outdoors. I really enjoyed seeing wildlife and spending time and hiking and going to the beach and searching for seashells and that sort of thing when I graduated college. Actually a little bit. Before I graduated college I went on a trip to Andros Island. The Bahamas in it's a family island in the Bahamas and I went to a field station their biological field station and that is where I spent the next six years of my life. After College I worked at the field station. I worked with college. Students and high school high school students helping down learn about ecology and learning field skills in that type of thing and that really helped me really understand value of hands on learning. So you know whenever you education as you know there's sitting in the classroom and learning there is value to that there's also value to being out in the field learning skills. You know the experiential part of that and so. When after that after I left the field station I worked for nonprofit for a little bit in the environmental security sector and that really looked at conflict around natural resources so water timber diamonds was another example and that that was looking at conflicts most likely outside the US. And then. When I started looking for a new opportunity I was really attracted to. Nwf's education programs. We have a very large education program. National Wildlife Federation engaging. Little kids all the way up through adults and so that is kind of what got me hooked at. Nwf and applied for a job on the campus sustainability team. And so I've been here since two thousand three. That's awesome okay so I will let you guys now kind of feel these answer. You know whoever wants to answer white and build upon each other's responses in we're going to focus a lot on education recycle mania but you know the. Nwf Is a massive umbrella brand for a lot of different environmental conservation causes. So I did want to do a little bit of background about the mission. You know the strategic plan the six pillars of what makes the NWF and then we can get into the specs of the educational programs so whoever wants to field kind of the overall NWF mission answer can A. I'll go again and you know the midst of NWF is really to unite ensure that wildlife thrive in a rapidly changing world and There's no doubt in all of our minds and these days that our world is rapidly changing whether it's with this pandemic Like we're facing right now or the pack that more than one third of Americans. Fish and wildlife are at risk for extinction or the climate crisis. And of course all of these impacts what the impacts are on any of our marginalized communities so you recently. I just wanted to mention this because I think it's really important and it really sets the stage who I believe. Nwf is particularly right now and our it was CEO Calling Amarah who recently said that we need to be leading this charged with compassion. You know during this time because this pandemic is clearly showing that men. There are many structural inequalities in our societies such as access to clean water food healthcare or the

Own a Business, Not a Hobby with Jason Khalipa

"Guest is someone who knows the value and the struggle of the grind mini no Jason Khalifa. As the champion of the two thousand eight cross gains gains. But since then he's dreamed up started in scaled a thriving business. It's called NC fit which in addition to having over twenty gyms around the world old it's pioneering widespread corporate wellness programs reinventing fitness in the hospitality sector. And even changing the way people think about fitness. This but this growth journey all started in two thousand twelve when he was forced to confront the fact that he actually did not own a business at all he simply owned a hobby. I had a mentor of mine. One day we were walking down the hall of this one Jim that we owned as they. Hey Man I'm just letting you know that all this can go away tomorrow and that what you have here is a hobby not a business because if you get hit by a bus this thing's going away and he said that to me and it really resonated and after that day I started putting things in place. Get to the point where it's bigger than me. It's not just me. It's it's an organization and and you might be a figurehead of it but it's just still be able to have people in place that could lead it on the future and that was really important. Took a long time to get to that point but after a year or two weirdly developed a team that which actually worked out really well my favorite because I started developing the teen because I WANNA have business not hobby but then my daughter got sick and it ended up working out really well because I stepped away from the company for a while and it just kept running on sale and kept running so you had prepared for that moment without even realizing it worked out really well my goodness so two thousand eight you're pretty scrappy at that point was it literally soper. Noor you were starting on your own or yeah okay. Yes so from a business perspective. We opened up fifteen hundred square feet. Fifteen hundred dollars a month six month lease and we opened it with ten thousand ars in so in a way we opened the business. What did you know about starting a business at that point? Well that's really interesting so at that point I knew I love to coach. I knew I wanted to make an impact on people but I also didn't realize at the time but I had backed it up with a lot of confidence because because I've been working at the health club for so long. They Health Club was all about the business. It was all about sales. Were working at just a regular gym regular health club. Yeah and cross all about anti sale anti title business like you know. Let's go coach. Let's let's really help these people and there were just totally different ideologies. He's in in which was really good for me because I had so much exposure to the business side and then I had a lot of exposure to the coaching side. And try to marry those two with when we started the business and so you probably brought a little bit of your sales experience because I mean we believe around here that if you are truly selling your serving someone Oh yeah if you're selling to the right person I'm extremely grateful for my lessons that I learned working at a desk selling gym memberships because we had a lot of different diversity in the area I was in law. Different cultures came in. And so you learned how to adapt and grow your business based on talking to somebody and he started to learn how to listen in here. What are they looking for out of this gym membership in how ultimately going to get them to sign up was question but I learned a law about people and talking to people and so that played huge? Dividends ends early on the business. Because you get people to come in and there's nothing to sell them on except yourself in your service and that was an important thing that I learned throughout college. Was this selling my passion right. More sharing my passion say a read something not long ago that it said the millennial generation and the generation following following it more than any generation in recent history in the United States is interested in the topic of entrepreneurship and starting a business but then it also said more than any generation in the history of the United States. They're less likely to step out of actually start a business so they love the idea of it but it seems like they're terrified and I say we right. It's my generation. We are terrified. Actually step up and do something. So what are the prerequisites. What are the things people need to have from your perspective looking back back in order to start a business? I think at the time if I can go back and advise myself I probably would have advised myself not to open a business and the reason why I would've widow of is because I don't think I had the background to feel credible enough to go do it now at the time. No eight the economy's in the tank cross is not even well known at all all and I decided to go to business and looking back on it. I don't know if I would have advised myself but I also think that I had things lined up to do you. Were right meaning. I didn't have any external pressure I didn't have any children. Timing was really good. I just won the game so I had this kind of notoriety and and I had had a background in the health clubs so I don't know of back then I I had as much as I wanted to have now but I'd ask anybody who wants to start a business. Do they have that confidence. So they have that background to know when they sign at least they're going to be successful because one Sali's begins you start acting irrationally. If you're in the tank too quickly you'd have things lined up for you. You know it's one thing to say that I wanNA star Weirdest Tomo Coffee. I've talked about this before I love coffee. Yeah we we were talking about the fact. That Jay's shop is probably way better than Arkle Luge Coffee Station copying personally zone it teaches own but I don't know the first thing about sourcing it roasting in selling it. I don't know anything about the health laws in my area area. If we want to open it meaning I know a little bit about business but I will need to go learn from people glide densify mentors go work at a coffee shop. That's doing the best in the world. Go take things I like in build them into my business. Take the things I don't I can leave them behind. I shouldn't have for longer right and I think that anybody who wants to start a business go to school for as long as you can before you actually signed the lease because once you sign you gotTa know your playing in. You're playing to win. The clock started at that point. You're already in the game. I love that though. Because what you're saying is just being passionate about. Coffee is not enough. No I mean the restaurant. Business is a great example. I love food but I. I don't know the first thing about sourcing these products. How long we keep them for? I would need to learn those skills for a long time and then identify key people that have have unique sets of skills there and then bring them on board. Because you've got to understand about starting a business like what makes you different. What makes you uniquely better than your competitor? And how are you GonNa win is just what we think about. If I can't answer that we probably shouldn't be pursuing it and you said go to school earlier. I assume that's not necessarily just formal education right so it's connecting acting the right people learning from them putting yourself in positions where you anyway surprised if you connect the people in the right way in authentic way people want to help you. They do and they WANNA share their information but you need to go identify that and you need the work and you need to back that up with action. I cannot tell you how many people on a regular basis so last sure did this thing where I talked to four hundred Jim Owners in the span of six months on the phone just to check in. Hey how's the industry. What are you seeing? What are we see? The how can I help you to really want to understand. Is Our business on the right path and for all these people I talked to you and all these people I meet in person you can you can give them the world you give them anything you want you can give them. The answers are looking for. But they're gonNA fall in depth ear nine times out of ten. I'll look at these people back. Dude all you gotTa do is go do this. Is this your call them in six months and they haven't done any of it is because it doesn't mean anything unless you put action behind it You know when I talk about going to school I talked about. I would go to school in the morning morning. I work at night and I go ride the elliptical till super late at night with the owner of this gym almost every day for years picking his brain. I wouldn't just say hey. Can we meet on. I don't have time. Oh well what are you doing later on. Do you mind if I go jumping elliptical like being assertive you know what I mean. Ask Ask ask until I tell you to stop asking. We talk all the time here. One of our kind of mantras is you gotta live like no one else so later you can live like no one else and it seems so often and we see the picture of the entrepreneur that is scaled a business bigger than themselves traveling to the Bahamas and is making money while they're they're not checking their phone and that's just not an accurate picture. It sounds like no. It's not and I think it's actually a really sad thing because people want instant gratification and in entrepreneurship and business it doesn't happen and overnight you have some anomalies of course right where you'll have a startup that startup gets you know goes for an IPO twenty four months later and all of a sudden get paid out hundreds of millions leads dollars. But for the most part I didn't see what that person went through before the IPO D- and that's just the exception to the rule in general more times than not it's in the trenches working for long periods of time and then eventually start building up some momentum and then it snowballs into something

Federal prosecutors are looking into blackmail claims by Jeff Bezos

"And let's get into this. Jeff Bezos story. Jeff as an Amazon probably taking up more oxygen than any other. Today on the Bloomberg terminal, and candidly sort of out in the business world Spencer Soper tracks that closer than anybody. He joins us on the phone from our Seattle bureau, so Spencer, let's start with bazo 's and the National Enquirer, which is candidly, just a riveting story that I think no one saw coming bringing us up to date on the latest. Okay. So the latest dropped yesterday with a medium post from Jeff Bezos sandwich. He revealed these Email exchanges between his representatives and the national enquirers representatives, and he's basically accusing the National Enquirer and AM. I media of blackmailing him in in. There was a proposed deal from the Enquirer in there that they would refrain from refrain from publishing graphic pictures that Faso's had taken of himself and send to his girlfriend, which the Enquirer pain that they would refrain from publishing those pictures, if bazo ceased his private investigation into how the Enquirer pain, these pictures in the first place, you know, that's kind of my big question. How the heck did he get somebody get them, but he kind of digs deeper to this back and forth between Trump and us has been going on for a while. Right. We've seen Donald Trump certainly push back against the company. In terms of what the postal service charges Amazon for shipping. And we've seen some other post. Some pushback is certainly the president's been very critical often about what how the Washington Post has covered his administration. But there's there's another angle to this, and this has to do with the Manhattan US attorney's office. Tell us a little bit about that. That was an earlier cooperation deal with prosecutors that the National Enquirer and their parent company had tell me about that. Yeah. So that's how this does tie back into Trump still tangentially in in with respect to bazo. But that's how this agreement potentially doesn't a sense that there was an agreement an agreement between the Enquirer and these prosecutors, and basically what that agreement entailed was that they in exchange for the inquirer providing information that helped. Investigators looking into allegations of Mr. procreation of funds and things regarding Donald Trump's alleged extramarital affairs that exchange with their with their help on those that they would not be criminally prosecuted. But now this latest allegation of extortion. Could you know short circuit that that agreement? Right. Am I agreed not to commit crimes as part of that deal? Right. Void prosecution ever hush money payments to women who claimed relationships with President Trump. So that puts all of that in jeopardy. Yeah. So Switzer shifting gears a little bit closer to home here for us in New York City is this deal. Maybe that's falling apart to move part of HQ to to Long Island city. Wow. That happened fast. Yeah. There was a story in the Washington Post today attributed to anonymous sources that Amazon was reconsidering this move. We've done some reporting ourselves. That's kind of throwing some skepticism on how serious this reconsideration might be. We have some sources telling us that people have already been, you know, executives within Amazon have already been notified about the need to relocated to New York, and that within Amazon the motion is full steam ahead. So there's definitely some questions about the timing of this story. And right, whether it could even be a political ploy just to try to cap down some of the opposition. That is really really, you know. Been running forward like a like a freight train to try to tamp some of it down. But, but yes, that would be the news is that there's some reconsideration going on about this move. So we've really been trying to stress the importance of these stories or lack thereof. What it means for the company Amazon? Right. We think about investors. So investors be concerned with all this today. Spencer. Well on the on the Enquirer front, so far they are in you. And here's why you know, this isn't all of his relationship stuff. It's a personal matter. There's no allegations that ain't it was work related or could blow up into you know, sexual harassment lawsuits or anything like that. So that that's off the table. And then, you know, the, so then the next thing is, okay. Is it is it can distract him and bazo seems to be trying to preempt that there was one particular line and his medium posted jumped out to me where he emphasized. Oh, I hired this investigative team to look into this. And I and I told them to prioritize protecting my time, and I felt like right there, even though he's kind of in a muck and fighting this fight with the inquirer. He was signaling to investors. Like, don't worry. I've got my best people on it. So I can focus on the company. So, you know, the investors really haven't ever to this much at all. And in terms of the HQ expansion. I mean, you know, so what maybe another city and investors aren't even care about that very much. They just to get out.
