"If I'm really being honest, I mean, he took the model that we use and just ran with it and was either his experience like in the beginning, I was kind of doing my own work, but I thought, God, he's just so much better at it than me. I have to let him run with it. And really, for the bull run that we've seen from for all the time, just about that you've been with extreme value. It's been the best way to deep value multiples and things. That's not been the way to pick stocks. Since you started with extreme value, right? So the way that you do it has been the best way because that's how you get those perfect moments to find the great businesses that we like in extreme value. But what I'm getting at here though is it seems to me so different. Like when you tell me, you know, hey, you're the extreme value guy. Well, in extreme value, we're looking for really great, generally mature businesses that have big competitive advantages and they gush cash flow. They generally have great balance sheets and great managements and the names are well known. Stuff like Waste Management or Starbucks or something like that. But for that guy to turn out and tell me, yeah, I'm looking to make ten X and I'm calculating the intrinsic value of something that doesn't have earnings yet. Of like, make the connection here for me. If anybody can make the connection, you can, but, you know, it's not instantly visible. Yeah, and you make a great point. And it's funny when I think back to how it all started. I do screening. I look for stocks every day as part of what I do. And what I began to notice was that there were all of these companies. These obscure, smaller companies that I didn't know anything about. And as I looked closer at them, I thought, okay, I like that story. I realized the thing had already gone from two or three or $5 a share up to 40 or 50 or a hundred or a 150. And I thought, wow, I never knew anything about this. How did that happen? How did it go from 5 to 75? And I never knew anything about it. And I decided that it was time to figure that out because there were quite a few of these things happening. And I thought, not only am I as an investor myself missing out on an opportunity,.

How Do We Return a Politically Divided Economy to Normalcy?

"I'll tell you what one of the struggles I'm going through Charlie. I mean, I'm not a, you know, I happen to have written a book, I'm writing another one, but I don't think of myself as a commentator and author. I'm an entrepreneur, I do things, right? And so how can I sort of drive change in a positive direction? And look, here's what I think could work. And here's my reservation about it and here's why this still think it's a good strategy. Here's what I think could work is corporate America will respond to one thing. Getting hit where it hurts in their pocketbook. And I think right now, there are 70 plus 75 plus million Americans who are disaffected from their economy who are disaffected from their culture who are quietly kind of forced to buy products or to work at places that don't actually respect them and they know it. And I think that's bad for our culture. Now, what does that mean in terms of a business opportunity? Black rifle coffee just listed announced a deal to go public via spac for $1.7 billion, whatever it was a couple of days ago. That's the right wing version of Starbucks coffee. Do I really want to live in a country where there's a Republican form of coffee and a democratic form of coffee or dare I say one day a Republican Florida right wing version of baseball and a left wing version of baseball? I don't, actually. I want to live in an economy that brings us together across our political divisions across our cultural divisions across our racial or other divisions. That's what that's the real private sector we ought live in America to thrive. And so as an entrepreneur, I'm really skittish about the idea of creating a right wing alt version of an economy. That being said, I think the next step has to be to create market solutions and alternatives that respect that group of 70 75 million Americans with companies that do share their values to tell them that they're important and valued to bring them back in to steal customers to take those customers from the rest of corporate America, which will then I hope have the effect of not allowing those alternative businesses to succeed massively unchecked. But the rest of corporate America doesn't wake up and say, oh my God, we missed that. We got that wrong and swing the pendulum back. That's where I'd like to go not to two economies, but to use that to be able to catalyze a return to normalcy of what our private sector is supposed to represent in a political space that brings

And it's always amazed me as to how people get excited about things. And I sometimes wonder if it's real or if it's for an effect. You would think right now, people would be talking about the elections that happened in New Jersey and Virginia and the new mayor in Boston and New York. Sure, people in those areas are talking about it. But right now, all I ever see on my timelines and I mean my timelines, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, are the fact that the new Starbucks holiday cups are finally out. Now I understand people getting excited about a specific drink coming back at Starbucks. It's almost like the pumpkin spice latte people getting excited when that comes back around each year. I don't see anybody talking about the Starbucks drinks that are coming back. They're talking about the four new cups, wrapping paper ribbons, holiday lights, candy cane, like it matters. It's a paper cup or a cardboard cup or whatever they make them out of. It's just a cup. What's in the cup that matters, doesn't it?

The Mystery of America's Current Labor Shortage

"There's a mystery out there, and you can help us solve it. Some of you have an idea of how we can answer this question together. I think I have a good idea of what is happening, but I don't have the complete picture. But I definitely know the problem, and we're going to talk about the problem together, and then we're going to figure out what exactly the main reason the driving reason is and then what I think their solution is going to be. Wall Street Journal writes this piece and it's exactly what we've been saying on our team because we're traveling the country and we saw the most bizarre thing yesterday. So The Wall Street Journal has the piece where did all the workers go? So we are in loudon county and we on our way to Vermont, and we asked ourselves the question we said, why are the Starbucks? And again, some people on our team love Starbucks, I know I'm going to get blown up by that but whatever. Go to second vote dot com and learn how terrible Starbucks actually is second vote dot com. Promo code Charlie to get some money off. Starbucks were closing at ten a.m. in Northern Virginia. They were open for 5 hours. They could not find the workers to keep Starbucks open. We went to Cheesecake Factory last evening after our event. And I kid you not, there must have been what 20 tables that were not wiped off are cleared on our way. They said that they have only half of their workers showing up to work. I went to a place in Phoenix Arizona last weekend protein house, great place, if you're in Phoenix you should check it out. It's a terrific restaurant. Two great conservative Christian patriots that run that place. And they said that they are paying people as cashiers, $17 an hour, and they can't get people to do the work. $17 an hour, and they just kind of show up whenever they want to show up they do whatever they want. We are hearing about this labor crunch all across the country. People are calling it a tight job market a strict job market and I can't quite figure it out. Now before you email me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com you say, well, Charlie, it's obviously the stimulus payments, those have stopped. Charlie's obvious the generous unemployment benefits. Those have stopped they're still continuing in certain states, nowhere like where they used to be. Or Charlie, it's all this, so let's work. There's lots of different elements to this. There is no obvious answer. If you think you got the obvious answer to this, then email me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com because I'm genuinely interested. There is a labor shock and shortage that we've never seen before.

I think with starbucks and those things look you gotta you gotta take your people have unionization is what it takes then okay. I didn't know. Yeah definitely i mean. I think we're all seeing that. The degradation of worker rights that led to the wage stagnation of the last forty years and frankly is probably contributing to people not wanting to go back to jobs that have been historically kinda crappy for a really long time Unions may have their issues.

"It just proves the inherent greatness of the business. So this is one. I've said this before chris. Like if you don't own shares of this and you understand that it's richly valued. That's totally fine if you're interested in it by like one chair if you can do that if you're here in the united states if you're overseas like just and you don't get the benefit of free trades just make a small amount just a small trade in the stock and then you know build over time because this is one that is not going to get cheaper anytime soon but its greatness is going to compound well to go back to to starbucks and again i'm not knocking. The wall street analysts. Who who come out with these notes. And that's their job and they're smart. I'm not. I'm not questioning. They're intelligent. I do however like to remind myself. Every now and then they're timeframe is different than the time frame. We talk about here at the motley fool because yeah starbucks. The picturing china is not perfect. And there's always going to be challenges in running and growing a business that big but johnson's experience. He's got a smart team around him. He knows what he's doing. So it's like okay. Yeah if you're timeframe is the next three months. Yeah i get why you're neutral on starbucks. If you're thinking about it for five and ten years then what are we even. And that's kind of how i look at shop like i don't shares it's on my watch lists and part of me was like i should probably just by a couple of shares just to stick it away and not think about it for the next decade because i bet a decade from now which is my time frame. It's going to be higher right. And i i look at it. Same thing right like the starbucks argument is do. We believe people are still drinking coffee and drinking in greater volume over the next ten years. Yeah i think so. And with with shop affi- same thing. Do we think a greater portion of business will be done globally and online. Do we think that's a reasonable assumption. I think the answer to that is yeah. I mean the portion of business can be done online or done in a hybrid fashion where you order online and pick up or order online and get it delivered. Yeah that's going to happen and it's not going to be centered around one vendor called amazon. It's going to be a lot of businesses. I mean if you were to put shop affi- amazon together and you thought of shop. If is one ecosystem and amazon is the other. How much of the world's business are you talking about. It's a lot but it's also still less than fifty percent. That is extraordinary. So i think there's a lot of room for growth here. Chris no doubt no doubt in my mind. But yeah there. There's also no doubt it's a it's a very richly priced stocks so one or two shares. Tuck it away. I think it's a good strategy. Tim byers always great talking to you. Thanks for being here. Thanks chris. there's always people on the program may have interest in the stocks. They talk about on. The motley fool may have formal recommendations for or against saddam by herself stocks based solely on. What you hear.

The past got winery, located in Sharp Binyamin Industrial Park of the West Bank's area C fought for the right to be labeled made in Israel, even though it was located outside its sovereign territory.

With those products susceptible to boycott in other words, that sells that even cells into today and Samaria. The supermarkets, the ice cream parlors or anything would be subject to boycotts.

How many gas station water bottles have you bought this month or dago water bottles. I mean even if you're just buying a water bottle once a week you're spending one hundred fifty bucks per year unjust plastic. Do yourself a favor and by the twenty dollar reusable water bottle and fill it up all the time. There are so many everyday things we can swap with reusable counterparts bringing your own bags to the grocery store instead of using the plastic ones which will save you some money in states. Like new york where you're charged fee forgetting bags at checkout and plus their way more comfortable to walk with you can put way more stuff in there and you can bring your own coffee mug to starbucks. You can use a dish towel instead of a whole bunch of paper towels and okay. I hate using a crusty dish towel as much as the next gal or guy but newsflash. It's twenty twenty one nasty dish. Rags are things of the past. They now make dish towels that come with soap in the micro fibers. So you don't have to also by dish soap which yes comes in a plastic bottle so instead of buying a multi pack of paper towels three times a month you have a one and done dish towel.

Oh yeah what's interesting is that we don't just own staff but we often find ourselves bewildered that we own so much stuff almost as if we didn't have agency acquiring all the stuff ourselves so we look around us and we see how could i possibly have collected all the stuff around me. Yeah well that's kind of the reasoning behind the title of the book possessed and it's a play on words because you know say possessions are the things that we own but i'm also alluding to the fact that this is almost as if there's a sort of little demon inside his which is compelling us to go for more things like this irrational little monster who who controls our consumption.

Too Soon? The CDC Relaxes Mask Guidance for Fully Vaccinated

"Okay ellison aubrey. Since the new mass guidance from the cdc came out different groups. Industries have responded. Let's start with businesses. Sure i mean. Many of the big retailers are dropping their masking requirements including walmart. Costco starbucks walmart says. It supports employees. Who may choose to continue to wear masks. Even if they're fully vaccinated and all of these chains are encouraging people who are not vaccinated to continue to mask now over the weekend cd. Rochelle walinsky was pressed about the new policy and she cautioned. That masks will be with us for a while. Likely said a lot of people are not vaccinated and they should be masking in many settings. He or she is on nbc. This was not permission to shed masks for everybody everywhere. This was really science driven individual assessment of your risk. And now we all need to work together and cdc is hard at work now saying what does this mean for schools for travel for camps for businesses. I think what she's getting at here. Mattie is there is more guidance to come now. They've shifted this strategy unmasking. A lot of the other guidance for what to do in the office what to do in schools will need to get looked at again reviewed now given how hard it is to police the new policy. I mean it's hard to know who is or isn't vaccinated. This really just comes down to the honor system and dr walinsky ask people to be honest with themselves because people who are not vaccinated are putting themselves at risk. Yeah i i mean alison. This was the part kind of blew me away. I mean this puts the burden on individuals to do the right thing by themselves and also by others. And i i don't know i don't think we have evidence that an honor system will work in the us especially with the stakes being this high. Well there definitely are critics. Marc perron is president of the united food and commercial workers international union which represents about one point three million frontline retail and grocery store workers. He says the guy insists confusing. And that the cdc has failed to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to people who are not vaccinated. And some refuse to wear masks. I think that the guidance should busy. People should wear masks at least until we get to that herd immunity number. We're not there yet. We only have about forty percent of the population fully vaccinated and i. I think that we could have waited another couple of months. And there's also similar concern from nurses mattie leaders of the national nurses united which is the largest union of registered nurses in the.

"With Starbucks and internal memo sent to Starbucks employees last week specifically warned staffers against wearing accessories or clothes bearing messages in support of the black lives matter movement the memo remind staffers that such messages are prohibited under the company's policy against accessories that advocated a political religious or personal issue now they're not the only company doing this because I know Publix now when they're doing they don't want any messaging or writing or anything like that on face masks that their employees where they want there's a couple of different very plain styles that they're allowing and that's it so this is something I think you're saying it's not just happening at Starbucks is happening at a lot of different companies because all of a sudden the mass thing has become people are using it to to get messages right no I get that but I'm gonna call out Starbucks whoever Alcor parade is saying is because during pride month they have a whole line of Starbucks pride shirts at the employees where well yeah this piece notes that numerous employees told buzzfeed news who put this together that the company regularly allows or even encourages employees to wear pants in support of LGBTQ equality especially during pride month every June right but they they have printed Starbucks logo pride shirts they wear not all lighten or like out your pride had its like issued from Starbucks no one so why are they even added another vehicle because why are they drawing the line on yeah wearing a black minds matter you'd think Starbucks will want to promote that with all the stuff that they've gone through what discriminating against you know people a black person going to Starbucks to be accused of god knows what the data when the bathroom and called the police on the guided by remarks yep I would say if I owned a company no messages I don't want any messages on the mass no political statements like you're here to just do it you don't need to be mixing it up you know what you know where that's going to lead it's going to lead to a customer getting pissed off it's going to lead to a conversation that could get taken the wrong way they could get in flames quickly I just I I would want the nonsense but that makes no sense if they're doing the pride month stuff right but then they're saying you can't do the black lives matter thing and I like how they put in I guarantee you if you throw in okay well what if somebody the works for Starbucks wants to wear a mask a mask how would that work exactly you know that's the slope that that's why I would want to deal with it there was a piece in the Tampa Bay times that I thought was interesting because we recently talked about all the individuals they keep getting fired because of the things that they're posting on social media and we actually went through some of your rights and the rights of companies have when it comes to this kind of stuff the Tampa Bay times had a piece on whether or not you can be fired for protest thing and so they talk to a woman in who said he was fired from Johnson's barbecue in plant city last week two days after attending a black lives matter protest she said she's white that she was told the firing was due to her views now the owner said the same that wasn't true and he supports his employees right to protest he said she was fired for violating company policy and that violation took place at a protest but didn't specify the policy saying that he respected her confidentiality sana what happened there what do you think about this get can a company here in Florida if they find out the you went to a protest and I like I don't want my employees going to a black lives matter protest images fire you like that well number in Polk County they almost try to fire all the teachers that went to Tallahassee to protest are you remembering the legislative session so but I mean I take here's my thing because there's that aren't that story enters one down a little further where yeah yeah you got a fact check because and you could use the time just for doing talking to the owners of the employers because a lot has people come out and say like well they fired me because I went to a protest like now if I right right X. Y. NZ cool totally unrelated so there is a thirty year olds Baker manager at Seminole heights general store she said she was fired from she was fired by her boss after she was confronted about Facebook post supporting protests and racial injustice the owner of the store so she wasn't fired for that but quit when she failed to show up for a meeting one day and never came back to work to my point of difference yeah the owners said their water in place post on social media is their own business and I never discussed it what's this other one the guy here posted often about his job as a per resa in Saint Pete he said his bosses knew for years that he also uses accounts to advocate for conservative politics this thirty two year old white any person against the black lives matter movement which he believes does not promote racial equality he was fired on Monday after the cafe received complaints about a recent post stating that black lives don't matter to black lives matter white privilege is racist line so.

"Today's better than a dollar tomorrow. You know I think back to like the Walmart episode. There was Sam Walton. What was it forty four million dollars? He grew his business. Or billion billion and lake at what point is it not just enough and I don't think I can't imagine trying to manage that kind of company. No N even as we grow. I mean I'm not saying there's a point where I would say over so big. Let's not go after any more business but like I desperately want to be able to do good for others in this business is the means to do it are why is saving folks time and energy for what matters most now. How do we do that? The services we offer and the different ways we do it the other folks but even then if we had a thousand employees. I wouldn't want that to ever change and then for each of those employees. I want to make sure that we're able to provide meaningful work that allowed them to save time and energy for whatever matters most in their life. No one should be missing their kid's baseball game because you're stuck at the office little tangent before on here and I'm just going to go ahead and say it again. We strongly believe in what we do in that it provides a great efficiency for people in Kyle real great about San. I don't think we can help you or you know. This is what you're really going to have to do. And I know it costs a lot naked unless you do it and I appreciate the honesty wing at our car in the shop recently and they told us it was going to cost this much in the we went to pick it up and they said Hey. It wasn't actually what we thought it was this. And that's five hundred dollars less. I was just dumbfounded. All things mechanic. Louis Oh yeah Oh yeah especially after. They told us you know and so of course thanked him. He saying that's what we're in the business of doing and You know main on anyways him just being on it. It is the only thing off topic. It's honest to what your mission is. This whole book is about you do it. You have to be honest. What that goal is something? I talked about with a our oldest son little bit. You know like was talking about a sin right to send something you did wrong but if you look at what the word actually means you original like Hebrew text of what that means is simply means to Mr Target so sin is missing your target. So if you've got the wrong target then you're definitely doing bad. Yeah so the. It's all they talk about that a little bit. In the seven habits mentioned last time we're going so to go back to our business in an effort to do right by people just recently redeveloped more consulting. Pack again we are. I mean that's one thing about kyle. He's always like how can I make this work for all sized businesses got? Can I help people so he just developed different levels of Quality Assurance Plan? We've got like three different tiers on strength from business. Your but an example. You have to be able to not just adapt and change that so cliche but you have to find ways to truly serve people. We're working with people. I don't care if it's a trillion dollar industry miller business or million dollar business. I'm talking to people run it. You have to help people and so we're trying to do here is get it set up so that it supports our vision of saving folks time in energy for what matters most and just because this is the best example. I can think of because it's what we do is if what matters most to you is advancing your career. Great that's what matters most to you. Let me make some time available in your day so that you can go to that next week thing. You can tackle that next big project and you can keep climbing a ladder as Dave Ramsey says. Just make sure your ladders against the building knows when you get to the top. You'll be disappointed or maybe it was like me like I got tired of this. My Kid's baseball games that that was the those line for me and so that's what we want to do. But if you don't know what that why is and you don't have to be this year of the company for the white matter. Every individual person has something that they're going after and they need to align their life with the target. I think that's important to note because we haven't really talked about that. We've been talking about the why as the in. Everybody has a Y. You know you have to think about what Israel why. Why not necessarily? Why are you at this job or white? Like what is your Wi in life. What is it you really care about? I mean what is it and everyone is different. I'm not going to see what it shouldn't be. But they had gum got to know it in. You've got to have a target and eager to hit the target. I would say if you're having problems in the only met day. Seven Habits of highly effective people will help you. Think you know when we first started talking about why. I'm a mom a wife. I'm a Christian. And he talks about all those different roles digressing so long. You should sit in the office where the someday. I'm barely so to get back. Somebody outside the last thing again reporting at the Canon which is a very nice very love it share and so it's got glass walls around us but some of them are frosted. But Yell See people a bit like Pecan earlier we did an episode on South West Airlines. Oh Yeah Yeah yeah episode. Sixteen and I think you're going to put these and again financing talks about southwest airlines. Because several months ago before we got a little off topic I talked about. These guys are not gods gift right. They are the fiscal blind. So you've got to be really good at expressing your Y and talking about it and use it continues past and hiring the right person like we talked about before Christina Harb's bridgeport financial. She had hire the right people to send those cards. So Herb Kelleher. Who believes the one that started seamless airlines was looking for a successor? And he was going to interview. Somebody named Howard Putnam Putnam goes into the funding. He noticed that Keller her had kicked off his shoes. Keller is the currency right and Putnam is personally interview. He sees the kick off his shoes in the Callahan holes in his socks airlines. This dog for me. Listen with this and he said you know. I'm an every man to kill her. Had to figure out that PUTT. Putt was the right man for the job. So Simonsen it talks about. He got a chance to meet with Putnam because he did get the job and during their meeting which was hours long. Silence of what we go get a cup of coffee from starbucks number replied in this is quoted. I'm not going to starbucks. I'm not paying five dollars for a cup of coffee. And what the heck is a Frappuccino? Anyway the everyman up plenty embody with south. It's an airline for the everyman fancy frills and whatever you just need to get from eighty you open every man airline and so they need every man. Ceo with holes in his socks. Say Do actually Oh. I don't do. I made sure I have this. This may be not the quite podcast material but like recently. I've been rereading first and second Samuel and I was just very confused because two different priests. Their Son's turned out just absolutely terrible horrible and his sons read the ones that are supposed to seize them. I remember thinking like you'd think they'd do a better job with kids so that their kids would be able to succeed. I mean that's no different what we're seeing here. These are the same stories whether you believe scripture not these are the same storage repeated thousands of years apart is it is so hard to get the literal next generation or figurative nece- oh to get the next generation on board the same way you were and it's something that lots of folks have apparently had problems with toxic good comparison. You know you as a parent are raising your children. The way you believe you want them to live in the world and so you have to not only physical embodiment that find a way to infuse that into your children so that they live that life and it it's tough but these skills are the same whether it's work home church that matter salt salt same skills people are people you deal and live with people. Perhaps I should have done the seven habits. I I am excited about reading the seven habits. It took me a long time to get start with why but in Jane were found this reading at the along. My friends were reading. You can set a goal and reading a something that I used to watch. It really loved and then we had one cat and then we had to and then we had three and we have a business and I really got away from quits. We told me. Is You. Sit a goal for yourself a target. I now if it's a good target. I'm actually feisty succeeded. I wasn't able to finish the start with why and I'm ahead of my own. And you know this was the seven habits listed next one in the list and I'm reading. It's it's pretty needy young. It's it's a very different book than start with why. I'm almost halfway through with it. So we might. We might start a mini mini series. Take a break till I yeah to it. It's all good enjoying this. Absolutely it really matters to your quality it does in life in your quality of business it does. It does again as a cumulus bootcamp. We talked about four over half the material we cover is about this type stuff. Is You have to work with people. It does not matter how technical or good of a plane you add is. If you can't get someone else to believe it all right thanks listen..

"A lot of people like starbucks. Yes very well to do company. I really likes that makes you nobody. That's why it myself because I am not a coffee drinker. Therefore I don't care for starbucks and I actually don't care for starbucks also because it's very loud yes. I used to be though Mel chairs in the loud music. Playing people talking. It does not feel very homey it used to be my ideal go to study spot in college but it did say it's not talk about. Yeah so starbucks was started in nineteen seventy two by three guys in one thousand nine hundred eighty two Howard Schultz took over increasing the bigger vision. Okay he really likes the espresso bars of Italy unloaded ring some of that Erica. He wanted to create your third space somewhere between work and home so somewhere. That's cozy that. You can work right so People started buying into what starbuck stood for. Great Cup of coffee can have a Danish. She can stay in. Hang out you know. Those kind of things They serve their coffee and ceramic knives and their danishes were on ceramic plates. So it made it feel homey because you're eating on real dishes now not no more. They won't even give you the little cardboard thing. Keep you from burning your hands unless you ask for it. Well that's really crap. Yeah it is so that was to this was still why. Scholz was in charge that became too expensive maintain and they did away with it. Going for the paper cups and Simonson again in the book said something like Oh nothing says because he likes here. Here's a disposable cup. Now get out of my house. And they're like here's a cup of coffee and a disposable. Thank you WANNA get one to go. Yeah I might give you one but look if we kinda friend. They'll just Hanno cups of coffee a stop off of that. That's not what they were so starbucks. Save Money Trust. Because this is what we've got to you. This isn't what we know. It wasn't what they were built. On so Schultz was still there. He was the physical embodiment of the. Why right and so even though they did away with all that stuff he was still able to lead his employees in the wine they existed the third space he left in two thousand and things started to get worse in eight years. The company grew from one thousand. Thirteen thousand stores. They became over extended and they were facing competition through like McDonalds and places that starts sell coffees. That tastes good. They're serving and to go now. I can drag. It must faster the starbucks and cheaper the starbucks. I'll tell you I like McDonald's coffee but her in laws don't like McDonalds but like two coffee. Hey maybe you can give us your opinion copy. Bring me up bring in the cup and our podcast bringing the Dr Pepper and tell me I'm pretty as my as my less. Funny Fried Excel. So they weren't over extended because of their growth. They were overextended because they forgot their why. Because they're not in the in the business and the only reason I ever liked them again with wasn't because they had the best coffee in the world and it's not GonNa go there just because I want coffee like it was where I went when I just wanted to cities last. Yeah I could just drink. Cup of coffee flipped from a textbook. Talked friends. Like that's what it was. I think about like the show friends the TV show Kirk had a couch. And I just didn't visit starbucks enough to know but I don't like they used to have the areas to be cozy and was upholstered even in me. I would not know. He's meetings at starbucks. And it's just you know. I remember when I was going to school at Lamar University of Beaumont. And you think about the morning anything terribly nice but they had a they called Mirabeau's and it was a little coffee shop inside the university. Oh my Gosh I love going there. They had like all Nice cushy couches you could sit on tables laid out and like I mean it was nice in the tables. Were big enough. You could actually put a textbook. Not like these little tiny circular. Outta town and I just get tired of being at home waiting on the kids cohost like I wanted to. I started reading more this year. That's one of my goals is to read a lot more and I just I asked you know I hold facebook just read and of course there was a lot of outsized jetsons but it was a rainy day and finally. I just was. I just going to go to Barnes and noble because I remember that they had couches and cheers you can sit on the comfy and I wish I don't even drink coffee but starbucks had some the way that I would go get a hot chocolate and sitting inside okay. But it's places that we've had say that's the same thing. It's the metal chairs scrape anyways so Schultz sent a memo to his successor. Jim Donald and said it's quoted. Make the changes necessary to evoke the heritage the tradition and passion that we all have for the true starbucks experience. And that's it. It's an experience because you can get a good cup of coffee for a dollar. At McDonald's starbucks is not going to beat that but they offer something. I will never go hang out at McDonalds. But I'll get a coffee from starbucks. Offer that anymore now competing. No I mean I'll happily pay my you know it's six dollars and two cents for a problem. Yeah just a little bit but I'll happily go pay it if I could just sit and hang out but like you said it's just really noisy and and I'm sure that's partially on purpose because it's not so noisy they just go just going in and whatnot so bad but recently I am. I just got tired of sitting in the office working. And so there's a starbucks like around the corner from our office and so I just walk down there to work a few times and it's a little noisy but you know they've got at least a nice place rob go sit down and work and when I noticed is they have more business of people who have ordered on their mobile phone and go in and pick up and walk out than people to actually come into the store the majority of the at least one location. I can't speak for. The franchisee is one location by our office. More customers come in for their cup of coffee than anywhere else now. I will say that the staff there is really nice and friendly and there are regular people that come in everyday give exact same. Drink the exact same time. They know all mobile name. They have little Chitchat and leave. And so I guess that's a good experience But that's not the experience they were set for those people. That don't have time that don't WanNa come in sit but for the people that need the third spe. Yeah because I need a third drink coffee. Yeah like I got plenty of comfortable places to sit at my house. Yeah but sometimes I want to change just winning and I don't WanNa have to listen to Mel shares scraping loud obnoxious hippy. Music Yeah and I. Don't mind hippy. Music but I don't want I don't even notice it city so if you like hippy music I'm sorry so after seeing the memo I guess Jim Doll didn't do it. Because Schultz returned to takeover donald with a new leader trying to get starbucks back to their. Why the problem was as I mentioned earlier. Schultz was the physical embodiment of the white right as long as he was there. You're all the employees still believed in it and that was fine and so Simon Sinek talks about the CEO's that we've mentioned and he talked about in businesses. None of them are God's gift business they are just the physical environment of their y their businesses. They started as their what to their watch. And so they don't do a good job of communicating that to everyone yoke especially their successor than died when they leave in this long to change that. Like Steve Jobs have come back even bill. Hanna come back so he didn't come back. Ceo But he talks about several people that have come back and working in a comeback work. Again it talks about Simon's talked about. This is why we call them the successors young they supposed to keep maintaining success and improve it for the next generation but they're focusing on the short term dollar is just. It's so tempting ensue. Appealing dollar.

"Should never have at Starbucks in there take has done is to ensure that it doesn't happen again it's the way the course is going to happen again unless they change the way they trained they just stumble over themselves last year with the same sort of thing with the rest room I mean come on and that's resulted in that in them having no needle depository boxes in their in their restrooms because remember Starbucks was the act of the last year's incident in Philadelphia it was two black men who were asked to leave because they were like setting up shop and that because this backlash of race so now they're letting anybody being on drugs and all sorts of things to the to the detriment of the employees have to clean the bathrooms that's why you're a crime has healed bottom right when I get to the bottom fast I think I feel the worst for the employees because it feels like they're in a no win situation like they closed down last year to have the sensitivity training where they're supposed to you know be sensitive to all of their customers needs and in this situation someone comes up and maybe it's a pretty silly kind of ludicrous for Christ to say like I need all of the police officers to leave or get out of my line of sight and so it's like what they do in that situation because what if it went the other way it's like they didn't ask the police officers to leave and then the person who said something big stink on social media and suddenly they look bad to this other group of people so it just feels like there's no way for the cost for the the employees to win but you can't you can't ask someone to remove someone who's not doing anything wrong from their line of sight what if somebody who was a right you know what I did you yeah these one of these black people are fighting to get him out of my way I don't like homosexuals get them out of my way back lashing that president yeah not it's not a we know who the person was or what the circumstances were the person who requested that the police be removed I haven't seen anything about that person but it's really been focused more on Starbucks reaction to a the purse right what qualities do you hire to change the culture you get a team of people who have the same basic attitude and you want to change the culture of the company there is a big company you'd think they'd be diverse but I'm not sure that they're finding people that have the quality that they're looking for is that they don't pay enough money they don't pay enough attention to detail they don't grab it's a big so if I you twenty one hundred stores not like their little company I've never had an issue when I the only problem I've ever had in the Starbucks is that the line is too long and sometimes it takes awhile and then I decide okay this isn't worth going in because it's going to take awhile but I've never had an issue with anyone working there or any of the customers either so I don't understand where this is going on using me like it's like the person who asked the police officers to leave it sounds like that person was just being overly sensitive to another customers need and maybe didn't made and the reason I asked about who was this person was this a racially motivated thing was it a black person who went to the Starbucks employee in said the police officers there are making me uncomfortable or or their presence is making me uncomfortable and then that employee then went to the police and said look you're making our customer uncomfortable like the chain of events seems very unclear but it seems like whatever happens the employee according to what to do clearly culture thing and that's the issue for me would seem I don't go to Starbucks and once in awhile it might have gotten a penny sandwich at one point in time but I have over prior because the anyway and everything else and there's over price far as I'm concerned I don't I don't feel I don't feel warm when I go into one of them I don't I just don't like him and so but with you talk about the general lets them even move away from Starbucks and talk about the general malaise when it comes to hiring people do we hire people who are all just like us at the same sort of trouble it seems to me in this day and age exists when you try to have people on your team who are all the same but I don't even think it's that I think that Starbucks is and I wasn't obviously we none of us are Starbucks employees we weren't there for the sensitivity training but what what this tells me is that across the company there they have these wonderful theories of things yeah this is an inclusive place and this is peace love and happiness the employees on the day to day logistical operations of how to run a retail operation and and instead of having let's all hold hands and come by ya how about saying okay when someone approaches you in and gives you this scenario this is what you're supposed to do and I don't think that's what they're doing I think they're trying to just be too on the macro level not really getting into the my new show of how to.

What Howard Schultz is bid for the White House could be in for Starbucks. Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is potential bid for the White House could be problematic for the coffee chain. Just as it starting to rebound from a slump in the United States. Joining me now from Los Angeles is Wall Street Journal reporter, Julie jargon. Julia. We should start by pointing out that Scholtz campaign has angered many people, namely Democrats who argue his candidacy would split the vote and propel President Trump to a second term in the White House. But so far shelters been brushing off that criticism, right? He his continuing to appear on television news programs in an appearance on CBS this morning. He said that he must be doing something right because he's getting so much attention. So at the moment, he doesn't appear to be backing down. Now when it comes to Starbucks Schultz also made waves for the company when it comes to expressing his political opinions or even in one instance, where he encouraged employers to engage in charge conversations with. Starbucks customers. Right. There have been different moments of backlash in the past at one point he encouraged baristas to engage customers in conversations about race relations. He asked them to write race together on people's coffee cups, and that angered a lot of customers who said that they just want to get a Cup of coffee, and they don't want it to be politicized. He also inspired calls for boy Kat threats a couple of years ago when he announced plans to hire more than ten thousand refugees and people were saying why don't you hire Americans veterans, which he has been doing. He's been hiring a lot of veterans as well during his time at Starbucks, but the other maneuvers times in the past when he's taken a stand on certain issues, and it's inspired outcries. But these cases were when Scholtz was still the head of the company, so why is his potential candidacy causing problems for Starbucks? When he no longer runs the company. Well, for one thing a lot of people probably don't realize that he has step. Away from the company he retired officially in June of two thousand eighteen as chairman of the board. But he is probably always going to be forever linked with Starbucks. He was the one who didn't found it. But he he got involved when there were only four stores, and he expanded the Starbucks brand across the globe. So it's been you know, he's been the public face of the brand for about thirty years. And I think it would be hard to separate him from Starbucks. And as you write in your piece for the Wall Street Journal, this is also a tricky time for Starbucks, which is trying to drive more traffic to its stores, especially in the United States, and amid a more crowded marketplace when it comes to coffee, you know, the company has been struggling a bit lately in the US from declining customer visits. They've been trying to get people to come back and and come back more often, and they just have started to turn a corner. The last quarter. They just reported traffic was flat to their US stores, which was an improvement from last year. Or the prior fiscal year of there's when traffic was down. So they've been doing a lot of things to try to bring more financial discipline to the company and bring more innovative into the beverages and starting to offer delivery now. So they've started to do some new things that have brought people, you know, kind of stabilize the business and now they're dealing with this. So Julie, what do you think we can expect in the weeks and months ahead as the campaign for the White House in twenty twenty heats up? Well, Howard Schultz has not said that he's officially going to run out. He said he is seriously considering he is just embarking on a national book tour for a new memoir that he has just published. So I think he's trying to test the waters and in the months ahead..
