How Would Financial Transaction Tax Affect Retirement Plans?
"Biden Well, he wants to study the idea of a financial transaction tax. Lots of your tax that you'd pay each time you buy or sell a stock Congressman Patrick McHenry. He's among those that believe this would be an absolute disaster for our retirement accounts. The financial transaction tax is intended only had Wealthiest, But when average everyday investors still buy stocks and bonds, they're gonna be hit. There's one study that shows that people have to work an additional 2 to 3 years in order to make up the difference for this financial transaction tax, a transaction tax talk. Talk to me about that. How will that affect our retirement badly? Just I hope they stop studying that and work on some other things. A lot of Democrats have backed his tax and its own stock trading. As a way to raise badly needed revenue and address concerns about the health of financial markets. So House Financial services chairwoman and Maxine Waters said she's quote unquote very interested and quote unquote certainly looking at a financial transaction tax, so they want to put a 0.1% federal tax on stock. On and derivative transactions in there saying, Hey, this could raise $777 billion over the next decade, according to a 2018 estimate by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. But first of all attacks like this would have fierce opposition from Wall Street, and it's unclear whether even the moderate Democrats would support it and opponents warn Hey, this is going to backfire on the retail investors by raising costs and making financial markets less liquid. Because look is going to trickle down and everybody who knows stuff like this and what I means not trickle down. Economics is trickle down. If you want to put something every time somebody buys or sells a stock every time. Well, most people inside a four Oh, one case they're buying and selling stocks that that's that's what's going on. It's not going to just impact the wealthy, and if you're going to start putting taxes like that on there, it's going to be hard for people to accumulate more and save more for retirement. When every time you buy and sell is going to trigger attacks blood, there's some other stuff We already know from attacks perspective that that's coming with a new administration. That's bad enough. We don't need this one. But don't you also think that people who maybe want to try their hand it doing buying and selling some stocks, or maybe I just want to dip my toe in it to see if I'm comfortable with it. Well, now, if I know I'm going to get taxed every time, even if I'm just learning the process, I'm going to step back and say Maybe this isn't for me because this had more of a negative ripple effect than they perceive. I don't even think they're looking at that. I think what they're looking at us, man. We're getting ready to write this check for 1.9 Trillion. We wrote trillions last year how we're going to cover this stuff because right Now there is no plan to figure out a way to pay this money back other than keep printing more, and that's not a plan. It's you know, just kind of hoping for that. I'm not even gonna say Get out. Get out frosted hope for the past. Pray for you know, it just it doesn't make. It really doesn't make dollars and sense. The only benefit to this is He is going to raise revenue for the government to cover all the debt that we have. I mean, that's it's not something that's gonna discriminate between the wealthy and the middle class. It's just not going to do that is going to impact everybody and maybe they don't care. I don't know, but it really doesn't make sense. It's just it's a shortcut just being You know really good at what they're trying to do. And just a little loophole here, we're gonna slide this little tax in and maybe maybe maybe nobody knows where people won't think it's so small that it's not that big of a deal, but it is every time that's a huge deal and how you're going to do that on retirement accounts, Retirement Council tax deferred. So now you're gonna have somebody pay a tax on account that's growing tax deferred. So you're gonna have to pay taxes on money that you are using that Shelter, but it's sheltered from income tax. But it's not going to be sheltered from the quote unquote federal just transaction tax like

More Former Aides Accuse New York Governor Cuomo Of Sexual Harassment
"The pandemic, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo transformed into a fully fledged TV star. Let's remember some basic context and fax society functions. Everything works. There's going to be food in the grocery stores. Propelled into the firmament by his daily Corona virus, free things that reassured an anxious, leaderless public hears Ellen de generous and Trevor. Noah. You call yourself a Cuomo sexual and I e. I agree with you. I feel like I'm a homosexual to it genuinely has been very inspiring and refreshing to see. A leader Like Cuomo, new fans declared their adoration in Tic tac videos, Means and song, the Great Randy Rainbow Stranded in my bedroom. Then there he give you an update as to where we are today. Mature me treatment of the governor, of course, extended to many news networks like CNN, where Chris Cuomo asked the tough questions Now you know, I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the love governed. I'm wondering if that's bleeding into your demeanor. It all making you a little soft on the president. Love girl. I've always I've always been a soft guy. I am the love government. Cool, dude and loose mood. You know that. But in the past few weeks, Cuomo's TV persona has faltered. Report from the state attorney general and a court order found that the official count of deaths of nursing home residents due to the virus was nearly doubled The figure first reported by the Cuomo administration. Plus, as I write this three women have accused the governor of sexual harassment, some in awkward, geeky detail, including two former aides. Alex Preen Stuff writer. The New Republic recently wrote the article. The Andrew Cuomo Show has lost the plot. Welcome back to the show. Thank you so much. I'm glad to be here. You know, two people who have closely read about the governor in the newspapers over the years as opposed to TV. This version of Cuomo, this bully in cynical operator isn't Knew How have the media changed the message? If you are a long time consumer of mainly print news about state politics, you had untiring chronology of Cuomo scandals even if you forgot some of the details. That didn't necessarily get a lot of play on TV news. Keeping up with Cuomo news over the last decade, has also required being familiar with reporters from The Albany Times Union or or newspapers and Rochester. You know these places where the Albany bureau is still really important and a big part of their beat. And a lot of that news, the complexity of it and specifically, the way it fit. A pattern of behavior with Cuomo was usually too difficult to get across, and especially in like a short television segment. I know a lot about this because I actually listened to the local radio station that produces the show. That's how come I know about the Moreland Commission. But you said this story never made it to prime time because it's too complicated. Absolutely, Yeah. All of the past. Few governors have gotten in trouble. Cuomo was running as the guy is going to come clean it up. And so he sets up a commission called Moreland Commission. He says they have the authority to investigate corruption and all of its forms here in Albany and they will be independent. I will not meddle. I will not interfere. He's shuts them down less than a year later because they start going after people too connected to him essentially and people who worked on the commission. They went to The New York Times, and they said Cuomo was meddling. He stopped us and we were getting too close to his allies, so that stuff was out there. But when the story made it toe TV news, it was stripped of the level of detail necessary to understand what had happened and why I like in this interview with Charlie rose months after it came out that Cuomo's office Had hobbled the aforementioned Moreland Commission governor Andrew Cuomo is reestablishing a family dynasty in New York politics, though he's had to get used to criticism. Of his leadership style. You micromanage. They say that delegate more right and you're not transparent. They say then. And they say you don't suffer fools and you know, Yeah. And you're not You push too hard. Yeah. You micromanage? Yes. All of that. You plead guilty or not guilty. You can't have one without the other. I plead guilty like not only was was Rose asking and easily Dodge question. He was almost ventriloquism. The answer's four Andrew Cuomo, right. It's like the old job interview joke. What's your biggest flaw? You know, I'm too hard on myself. You take issue with the defenders of Cuomo who say that Hey, His most important audience. New Yorkers always have known about the governor's bullying quality. That sharp operator with the even sharper elbows and all of that. And they like it third, this idea that he has cruise to reelection twice. They must know who this guy is and support him. And that's why I draw that distinction between corn on the TV character and new favorite Cuomo's, Because if we have listened to a few clips of him on television He's not berating anyone. He's joking around with his brother. He's performing empathy for victims of Covert 19 or Hurricane Sandy. Is Daddy complete with the dad each exactly. He's New York's dad now. It seems that Cuomo has been able to keep his TV persona and his newspapers persona separate. Why are they colliding? Now? For a few reasons, one important one is that people Do not want to go on the record attacking Andrew Cuomo because of the power he holds in the state, especially elected Democrats. What happened this time is that Ron Kim and Assembly member Received a bullying call from Andrew Cuomo for speaking to the New York Post about the nursing home situation. Kim had been at a briefing where a top Cuomo aide said Yeah, This looks bad that we reported the wrong number of people who had died in nursing homes. But you have to understand, like we need didn't want it to become a story basically, like they were like Trump Trump DOJ is gonna make a thing of it Trumps could make a thing about that's why we covered it up. So anyway, Ron Kim went to the post and gave it on the record quote to the post about that meeting. That was the subject of the call where Cuomo allegedly sat. According to Kim, I'll destroy you. In normal Albany affairs. What happens next is either Kim shuts up. Kim goes on background to The New York Post again because Cuomo as in other cases, finds an irregularity in Kim's background. And implies that that could be used against him. And what he would end up doing is at a press conference Bring up Ah, years old story about how Kim had flip flopped on Is Bill about nail salons, and he would outright say Kim was crooked right after Cuomo does that press conference. There's a story on CNN about how Cuomo had made this phone call to Kim the day before, and that's not the kind of thing that legislators and Albany usually do when they get Implicitly or explicitly threatened by Cuomo. They don't call CNN and go on the record and say the governor threatened me. I think that Cuomo got away with it for so long because no one wanted to put their name. To descriptions of his behavior. But Kim, he knows well, I have a story. Now I have a compelling narrative in which I'm the hero in the governor's The villain and TV likes stories like that. And he ends up on the view. Tell us what happened after he called you or when he called you? Yeah, it was last Thursday night. I was about to bait my three kids when I received the call from the governor. He spent 10 minutes threatening my career and ordering me to issue a statement. They will be used to cover for the states that you wrote quote. If a politician acts as if he believes his voters experience politics is a television show, the best way to harm him is to make yourself a compelling character.

"Much can we get away with when they need to be asking. What are the consequences. What are the consequences of prioritizing conspiracy theories and violent incitements simply because of the high rates of engagement. What are the consequences of not just tolerating but rewarding content that undermines public trust and lifesaving. Vaccinations what are the consequences of seeing thousands of users joining extremist groups and then perpetuating an algorithm that recommends even more it is long past time to stop pretending that this approach doesn't come with the cause polarization of loss trust and yes of violence. A social dilemma cannot be allowed to become a social catastrophe. I'll just stop there for a second. It's an obvious reference to the social delayed documentary on netflix. Which i highly recommend back to the article. The fact that tim cook doesn't name. Facebook somehow increases impact. Because as you hear cook speech you can't help but immediately think of the house that zuckerberg built the problem is that apple's and facebook's business philosophies are diametrically opposed to each other apple a lifestyle brand and part of the lifestyle apple sells users having more control over their privacy. Facebook on the other hand is in the data business the more data they collect on users more effectively they can sell targeted ads but collecting and selling all that data comes at great cost as cook highlights quote the end result of all of. This is that you are no longer the customer you are the product unquote cook. Went on to further. Highlight the differences apples and facebook's philosophies and no uncertain terms quote. We believe that ethical technology is technology that works for you. it's technology that helps you sleep not keeps you up. It tells you when you've had enough it gives you space to create or draw or learn or right not refresh just one more time unquote first glimpse. It might appear that apple and facebook or on diverging paths but in reality. They're on a collision course. Okay then there's there's more in this article and that's got an inflammatory. But i completely agree with the sentiment and certainly agree with what tim has been saying. I'm not naive enough to believe that. If situation's reversed that apple might not be data mining as well but as it turns out apple sells hardware. They sell cool products. They happen to rights great software. That goes with that.

"Quote in which the government instead of getting an order just goes out and purchases the private records of americans from these easy and unregulated commercial data brokers are simply above the law unquote. He called the practice unacceptable. And an intrusion on constitutional privacy rights quote the fourth amendment is not for sale unquote. The government's use of commercial databases. All location information has come under increasing scrutiny. Many smartphone apps log their users location. And the at makers can aggregate the data and sell it to brokers who can then resell it including to the government. It has been known that the government sometimes uses such data for law enforcement purposes on domestic soil. The wall street journal reported last year about law enforcement agencies using such data in particular at found to agencies in the department of homeland security immigration and customs enforcement and customs and border patrol have used the data patrolling the border and investigating immigrants. Who have who were later arrested in october. Buzzfeed reported on the existence of illegal memo from the department of homeland security. Opining that it was lawful for law enforcement agencies to buy and used smartphone location data without a warrant. The department's inspector general has opened an internal review. The defense intelligence agency appears to be mainly buying and using location data for investigations about foreigners abroad. One of its main missions. As detecting threats to american forces stationed around the world but the memo said the unidentified broker or brokers from which the government buys bulk smartphone location data does not separate american and foreign users the defense intelligence agency instead processes the data as it arrives to filter those records which appear to be on domestic soil and puts them in a separate database agency. Analyst may only query that separate database of americans data if they receive special approval memo said adding quote permissions to query the us device. Location data has been granted five times in the past two and a half years for authorized purposes unquote. Which sounds like a reference to something. I mentioned at the top of this article so anyway there's a couple of things first of all. The obvious one is that we do in. The united states have fourth amendment against unreasonable searches seizure. Which at the end of the day means that an order to go through your stuff. They need to go to a court somewhere give probable cause and convince the judge that they are likely to find incriminating evidence there and then get a warrant but and this brings up the second point. The problem here is. We are now in an age of surveillance capitalism because so much of the internet that is quote unquote free is only free because.

An army of robots with gun arms is not kicking down your door to arrest you instead. A robot snitch. That looks like a rolling trash can his program to decide whether a person look suspicious and then call the human police on them. Police robots be able to hurt people like armed predator drones used in combat yet but as history shows calling the police on someone can prove equally deadly long before the nineteen eighty-seven movie robocop even before karel capic invented the term robot in nineteen twenty. Police have been trying to find ways to be everywhere at once. Widespread security cameras are one solution. But even a blanket of cici tv cameras couldn't follow a subject into every nook of public space thus the vision of a police robot continued as a dream until now whether they look like the boston dynamics robo dogs or nightscopes rolling pickles.

"So when you enter your password is hashed and that hash. What is sent to the server and the server checks. The hash that came for the past regis entered to the hash. That was there when you first signed up and if those hashes match than the passwords must match now. There's a lot more technical stuff behind that that i'm not going to get into. But that's that's how that works so you might be thinking okay. Well that's that's a great idea. So if someone steals the password database and that password database just full of a bunch of ashes and those ashes can't be reversed. Then what's the problem. Well here's the problem. I the real problem is that humans are horrible at creating passwords on their own. So if your password is password p. s. s. w. o. r. d. Or maybe you got super clever and you made a zero for the show or maybe you went that extra step and said password. One two three those are. Those passwords are horrible. And they're so bad that the bad guys take these lists of known bad passwords and they've tens of thousands of them plus they take the english dictionary or whatever dictionary for the country. You happen to be and they pre calculate the hashes for all of those passwords and simple combinations of those passwords. So that when they see a hash and a pathway database if it matches one of the ones they have for one of the really horrible very decibel passwords than they know what your password is so what these things are doing what they're doing two things they're a they're looking for your email address because most people's accounts are signed up by email address and password so if they find your email address and password data breach somewhere then they alert you say hey. This email address was associated with breach somewhere. In fact it was associated with breach at name replace homedepot and so that prompt you to go to home depot and change your password but it also can do is is take the passwords that are in your password manager and take the hashes of those passwords and see if those hashes.

"Happy Childhood. I was very lucky that my despite a divorce both my parents were extremely streaming present. My Dad is an academic and worked a lot at home in the holidays. We spent a little time with him. So I have very happy memories of just mucking around around either in London or in the countryside grew up between the two there is a very relaxed childhood but always with a big emphasis on creativity ativity and learning and curiosity and I hope that that's what instilled in some of my core values so I very happy memories of my childhood somewhat eccentric. Take my dad as was my mother so we were often can. Olympic roses some entrepreneurial crisis bitten by the bug launch petroleum. My Doc self published some of his books remember stuffing envelopes Philipson sending the people in the country. My mom started a crisis line for people that were going to hurt their children and she didn't. I think it was inappropriate to take her from five six seven year old daughter the center that she was stalking listening to these really hardcore compensation so it was very and fun and happy and I feel very lucky to have been given up brew basis of encouragement obviously the thing that you are really known for. Well certainly the beginning thing. If you'll career is foot really being a true internet pioneer. You know I remember I was actually in the travel industry and I think I was twelve travel Martin London in two thousand and two watching you speak on stage and I think I remember that I think I was sitting that. You are a couple of years younger than me and I was sitting there. Thinking wow this is incredible and I was not working at an Internet travel company at the time Ziggy Dot com in Singapore it what I'm interested in is really how you found yourself in that spot at that time because it was really an incredible time timelessness it was a window of opportunity you know in some ways it feels like a parallel lifetime because so much sanctions than both in the landscape of the Internet clearly on the UK and just my own nicer. It does feel something going through a dual in this landscape there it was exciting because there was an energy in the people that had begun to gross potential power. Washington it was going to do and that was immensely energizing and the company was growing very rapidly by two thousand three. We had about three thousand people across Europe. We bought a lot of companies with our IPO money. We may be done about fifteen acquisitions. Stock value has gone up download the place and fundamentally the premise that people were going to buy things on the Internet had been started to be proved right and that was not given it sounds sounds extraordinary now but it really wasn't so I feel immensely lucky to have had that experience. You know it was such an outlying thing to have done restarted last minute. Dot Com is twenty five was twenty eight and nothing I remember it just being total Kale's most of the time Brent remembers it slightly more organized but I think it was complete. Chaos most at the time it was a moment where did feel as though things were going to very rapidly change and remember this was really pre. Google facebook pre twitter anything Ashby smartphone all of these things and the Internet out like it was going to be a different place in who's going to play for paternity. Entrepreneurialism wasn't going to be this big platform base balkanized. Oh can is Internet was going to be a small distributed new voices based Internet and that was something that was you know as you say new and different really exciting and in that time the late nineties aside from the vet digital e commerce companies were almost unheard of and having to explain to potential investors the merits of last minute dot com you also a woman. How did you find trying to be taken seriously at age. Twenty five with people like potential L. investors. I think you know the real mixture and some ways being a young woman was one of the most extraordinary assets to all business and I think I would be disingenuous. Now not to reflect flicked on the fact that you know we attracted attention. I was unusual. Sometimes it was just deeply. sexton suspension in this was Brent's idea which he very generously said knee right from the get-go Geico that he would be cut out of articles pictures in because he was a white man and that was a bit less interesting than putting a young women on the cover of whatever it might be but there will still laconic compelling energy brought to the fact that this was going to be something that looked and felt a bit different so that was the kind of positive side. The negative side was you. You will complete opposite that many moment so the travel industry is you'll remember clouds decrease exist if the tech business was bad as in the one and it was dominated dated by a type of skill just generally of the last decade women haven't gone into as in software engineering the travel industry was awful and I really remember being as shocked by going to these big travel conferences whether the power dynamic was deeply stubbing. You'd have lots of sort of young either people who worked in the service business whether it was asked you as oh cool centers in hotels and then management who generally women and the dynamic in the conferencing to be everyone would be very drunk and then we'll just be praying only the younger women. The really really screwed up. I hated it so on some levels. It was no easy to be across those two industries where women in senior positions things were unusual so I really would be being rewriting history. If I didn't say gave the business a boost in some ways that I was unusual face it came at some personal cost whilst to be honest and it wasn't easy and I had to be better than the men on had to prove that it wasn't just a young Blonde Bimbo didn't only thing that I was actually a serious person that you might business and so on for show and I'm curious from the perspective you have today. Do you think it's got better or easier for women in tech heck in particular or is it a worse scenario. Now I just don't know and I'm not dodging that question. Was He. Selling I think about a lot a couple of things. I think that there's more conversation about what it means to be. A woman in tech the importance of having diverse voices not just women but different ethnic backgrounds backgrounds different socio economic backgrounds zone than they have ever been and that is a positive but whether that is really being translated into change. I'm very skeptical about you. Know obviously I try to help any young woman that reaches out to me and I hear some really shocking story. Sometimes the young woman I was helping with the presentation you know the Dan she the really brilliant presentation about project that she was trying to get funding for and she rang me off to the presentation and he told me that they've been one question no so even worse the only comment at the end the presentation from this team of VC's had been Ukrainian voice a half now so this is two thousand eighteen that was and that could have been a question that I was back in the days. I was Austin our best the presentation what happens if she gets pregnant was that question so it some ways it doesn't feel at the dolls moved to tool and when I look at the dynamics of the sector as in the things that are going to be important I believe in the next ten fifteen years ago to be blockchain these these technologies and cyber technologies deep machine learning deep tech if you like which isn't that women conduit what I want to do it but just for lots complicated cultural and system reasons not going into those bits of the tech sector if those are the bits are going to be most valuable. It's like we're going back to square one again. Absolutely Soup Luke Feature Society is so dependent on getting. This ride isn't it. Yes absolutely yeah. moffitt changing subjects really completely natalie. After last minute you left I think in two thousand and three and you went off on holiday to Morocco I believe for sort of starting the new chapter of your life and you're involved in a terrible car accident where I think you broke lots of bones and even had a stroke. It sounds as if the accident has really severely impacted you as you go forward in your in your life. How has that experience changed changed. Life your outlook how you think I imagine it. His just changed everything here. It's hard to talk about not because I'm not wanting to but it's so deep it's kind of hard to put into soundbites to be honest spent two years in hospital. I broke twenty eight bones. I had a stroke I had to me build everything thing and it's so fundamental that it's hard to be objective about yourself in that way for me and very personal assistant his classmates a bit like grief defoe imagine that you'd go on your own. The personal journey and some of its people take things that are relevant to them and he ever going to be individual but for me. I don't think it changed my fundamental outlook on the world in thank. I didn't do some sort of Oh my God and changed my life and I want to be this person yet. If I hope it reinforced what I always thought was important which is my friends might network support my family and wanting to contribute and do something meaningful in the world in a way. I don't mean to sound churlish. I know it was an extraordinary experience and I I'm so lucky to have had it in a way. Love is strange experience in my life and I didn't wake up wants to be a tech entrepreneur. Ido Assu something more public service based and I guess the accident gave me Chee to assess my working life and go bit will back into that but in terms of them more substantive stuff about what it makes you to be a human being. I hope it just doubled down on my belief that in the end you earn his good as the way you treat people around you and those moments of extreme miss. That's what really tests that and I genuinely not a day goes by. I don't think about my friends who didn't let me be alone in that hospital him once for two years and continues to be suctioned amazing support network my mom my now husband. Chris all of these people who quite honestly dragnet from the deep too aggressive but now it's like another job. That's probably the best way to explain it. It just it takes up a bit of your brain all the time and it's very hard to explain that to someone who hasn't got some kind of chronic thing that they're managing because it can make irritable at moments it can make you suddenly unable to be how you want to be. It can take time and attention in a way that takes away from something else and that's what's the hardest thing I think so. Don't go into too much physical detail for your listeners. I'm sure they could be spared that but you know with a stick outside. I do every day. I manage a lot of pain. I'm pretty incontinent have random things that can happen because of all of the above that just takes time and energy and I don't. I don't want people to see it necessarily every day. I will to hide it and so that's the way I choose to be in my life but it is like another job. Gosh I caught much in how you cope with that every day but you must have found some things sort of mindset tools and things insight that the perhaps of helped you cope. Is there anything that you can think to the has really helped you apart from obviously the the social support and the support your family that you have around you. I'm very goal driven person and always have been too micro level and macro level so we have in my head the three things and trying to do everything might be as of today or it might be over the next six months by the end of the yeah near that can be very specific to me like I just moved house and has that kind of stuff can be specific to my work so these are the things I want to try and get done or it can be back for like over the next five years I wanNA try and have built my voice around this issue so I guess getting from a position of not having sat upright for six months to then have to learn to walk again. I found it like you. You just have to drive yourself through really specific goals and try and keep that motivation so I find that very helpful in how I get stuff done but then it'd be alongside that there's no special magic I mean it very very Cecilia when I said that without that would be maybe thirty or forty friends and my family there is no question in my mind and I would have been a wheelchair or dead because that energy that they brought to me every day was quite astonishing how incredible you had two years in hospital spital. What did you do when you decided you were ready to not just be a recovering sort of patient from an accident but actually get back into some form of work. What was your first foray. Twelve February was lucky voice. Joseph started planning before the accident. APESSE bench that I wanted to start doc just for fun on the side. It's a we have now twelve venues around the world that Karaoke bars you hire private revenue sing with your friends. We lost the first one. I think the year after I got hospital so we've just another one in central London so that was fun but I I wasn't running. It is just an investor founder. I started thinking about what is going. The do an I started my own small charitable foundation because that was something that was in my control and I could work as much as little as I wanted so I did that and then I the opportunity to join the Voter Channel Four Broadcasting Company here in the UK and often ready to do that he onto sticks debris broken but actually has encouraged to go for it..

I was like yes I do about business and I was just a friend who this mutual friend who knew the team and so it kind of showed up and rocked up up and I was twenty four. It's so funny I look back at it. Now I see my old notes. I was making management priority lists for them and and I was like running their P now's looking at categories and how profitable each category was and they were this cool little magazine and they had one this big pitch for Levi's to create magazine for Levi's was kind of the start of custom publishing and they were doing some art direction for Laurie Al for sort of John Pogo perfumes and our money perfume is just thought it was the most glamorous Morris clients sat coming from booth chemist to being able to sort of own my God. I'm like one step away from Mr Armani and I think you know I used to work. Click nights and weekends just sort of sifting through their terrible bookkeeping. You know they were just like forget. Zeros at the end of it was just the bookkeeper was a a part-time artist and it was a mess and it was so funny and I think I came in with so much rivera in sort of bravado and good information for them to Yes yes I. I can't not give myself some credit but I was sort of like ten steps ahead of where they were at but I loved the business and I loved the the potential and I had no idea about fashion publishing about the fashion industry from that angle but a new that again I loved the team and I loved the clients my loved the potential and sort of after essentially delving in and sort of soaking in everything I decided to quit working at Maricon fantastic ex-pat package. That's a that's a huge thing because I know exactly what expect men yes. It was big and my parents were terrified for me. They were like are you serious. You're going to go work for teeny fashion. Magazine Live live in London one of the most expensive cities in the world and essentially work for free for two years and I was like I am that was seventeen years ago and when you look back on that now yeah I could completely insane sane and I can see how all my friends and family thought I was insane to but the thing is I think I'm an eternal optimist and I just think that I can work through anything thing and I thank God for that Naievety and that optimism inmate because my God it's been talented thing and yet so incredibly rewarding thing but yeah. I think my parents like two years ago. Maybe at my fifteen year anniversary a tank finally said okay he you made the right decision. Ga A- and I think I probably knew that the minute I started. I'm intrigue because you said it's been lots of challenge yeah. Owning a small business is so full of highs and so full of the lowest lows I mean you guys probably know this too in. Any entrepreneur knows this but nobody ever tells you that a business this is only. GonNa survive dependent on two things and that's cash flow and people and nobody really tells you that as a budding entrepreneur that like it's all about cash flow you just think. Oh if I'm profitable it'll be fine but paper prophet and PNL and account. If you don't have the cash you're not making any business you equal pay people can't bear people and then you need really good people in order to make really good things and I think going into this business. I did not know that the business partners certainly didn't know that and I learned that the hard way and there were times when I was like. I don't know if we're GONNA make rent. I don't know if we're GONNA make staff payroll. I don't know if we're GONNA make city council rates up like can we do this. I'm proud of surviving. I'm proud of surviving as an independent print magazine kind of at the core of our business to have survived for over twenty twenty years is a huge chievements and what is tank look like today because congratulations on the twenty years thank you. It's a question tank looks both completely completely different if anybody from twenty years ago we'd come back they'd sort of say we looked very different but at the core of it. I think we've always wanted to tell stories and and have a platform platform where either underrepresented voices could share their stories and also be a place where fashion fashion could sit very comfortably next to politics could sit comfortably next to philosophy art and architecture so tank is sort sort of print digital. Those two things are sort of the lifeblood. I don't think you say digital and print or separate anymore. Yeah and what about the other parts of the business so we do a lot lot of brand consulting work strategy work on marketing for mostly luxury and retail fashion brands jewelry brands and cultural institutions and we still do lots of that. I'm really curious though because you've come into the fashion world and yes it was your absolutely love but you you came in really really young yeah. Have you ever sat in a room and felt like an impulse Ta. Oh all the time. It's hard to shake that impostor feeling feeling and I've listened to numerous. Your podcasts were so many of other female entrepreneurs. Sir Really talked about that issue but yeah absolutely I've put myself in so so many positions where I'm doing new things and I love that. That's the one thing that I think has created. This weird. Multi hyphenated career of mine that I say yes two things that I don't actually know how do and that impostor feeling is ever-present because I am putting myself in those situations nations so about five years ago funnily enough one of my ex partners from consulting firm Maricon from my San Francisco days had joined joined Nordstrom a huge American department store in retail brand and by having kept in touch with him he introduced me to the Nordstrom Team mm-hmm and I ended up designing with my name in a label eight collections with the arched team for the American market credible apple incredible. I look back and I go again. How on Earth did not happen and I had never designed closed before sure I had never gone to design school and Nordstrom. If you're listening closure is they luckily and I think that's one of the things that got excited with that. Here was a woman who is sort of out about. She's businesswoman. She has a professional life. She travels house a lot. I need clothes will work hard for me but I care about what I wear and I think that the clothes reflect your mood reflect how you're going to perform that day day it's such a such an extension of who we are and they trusted in me he this incredible huge business and new label and it was called. Nordstrom Nordstrom signature by Carolina he saw but every design meeting. I'd be sitting there going like I actually don't know what I'm doing but instinctively I know about style. I have an opinion and I have a point of view and I think it's so important to show up with the point of view and people can like the point of view they can hate point of view and luckily you work with people who want your point of view but Nordstrom is just one example of time where I was given an opportunity that that I had zero preparation for and how did you get through it and you head. How did I get through it in my head. I said to Myself Multiple Times that they obviously some see something in me. That's like I. I'm not sure what it is but that you know are compelling Ma'am to give me this incredible responsibility. The great thing is that you've gone with it. I said yes yeah the thing I think that defines my career is that I say yes a lot and I liked to put myself in situations that I am uncomfortable in yeah in a sense of career expansion suspension and so I do a lot of things that I on paper don't know how to do. I like to think that I'm resourceful and I listen in and I learn and every new experience has built up this fantastically complex floral pattern. I can pull on and it means that I'm open up to a lot of new possibilities others listening who may be offered similarly sort of opportunities where they haven't had had direct experience might have absolutely said to themselves no. I'm not ready yet. No I couldn't do that. If someone in that situation came to you for advice. What is it that makes you be able to say yes. I think I would say you're highly capable person. What's the worst that can happen if you're interested in this. Why not try it you know and put your heart and soul into it and if you're passionate about something good will come out of this whether it's learning learning whether it's a beautiful product you know. I just think people have to say yes more often. I think people have to take themselves out of the boxes that we sort of put ourselves in. I get so many emails or direct messages from lawyers or management consultants and bankers people who've read about my history and say like I love fashion like how do I get into the fashion world and I'm just like email somebody that you love shadow somebody that you love good with fashion. Show and ascot could designer if you can work backstage. Just put yourself in a position where you're doing something new. You're learning and you're sort of putting yourself out there because if you don't put yourself out there nobody thirty one is going to now. I think the more that I said Yes to weird new opportunities other brands or other partners. Were sort of saying Why can't we consider caroline she could do that. You know I'm just been asked by very incredible luxury brand to potentially work on a really really big project and I've never done anything like it and I was putting together the proposal this weekend going God. Can I do this like I don't know I'm terrified it but I just said like if I said no I would regret it for the rest of my life and really I have such a great network to draw into. If I really you can't do it. I can ask somebody who can help me and I can get there and I can get to the answer so I think I've also built up that network. where I feel like I can kinda tap happen to anybody and everybody and they might help me out? I mean you certainly got a heck of a network. Yes yes. Let's talk talk about another side of you. That must be quite pressure. I would think which is your social media profile. I think you're up to nearly two hundred thousand on instagram followers and every day I would imagine that it's quite a responsibility and a pressure yeah because a lot of is about you and what you're wearing. So how do you do with that. You know it's been so fascinating about the social media phenomenon coming on is that when it sort of exploded I was sort of swept up in a sea.

Thank you is to have you here because yes. We've known each other for a very long time. Yes we have yes. We just worked out. It was seventeen nearly eighteen years ago that we worked together together. In Singapore crazy crazy happened five million years ago madness and only seems like yesterday and we worked as consultants together. Yeah Management Consultants in a new office in Asia and it was such a heated time for us both it was I feel like so much has happened since well. It's hard to believe we're actually there but we're GONNA get into that as we go through this wonderful for interfere 'cause it's pretty exciting now a big adventure it certainly has and you guys might have met in. Singapore but here we are today sitting in a a studio in the center of London in London last Sunday. You lines during anytime well as we usually kick afar interviews. What I thought was I would just ask you. How would you describe what you do today. It's so hard to put it into even a sentence but I I guess the way that I would describe what I do today. Is I am a storyteller and an entrepreneur. I I tell stories through many of the mediums that are available to us and usually across the worlds of fashion and culture culture. I run my own business in order to do so a new as you said you've got many hats and you'll see O- of Dank magazines and then the fashion director as well as I mean we're a small business so you tend to wear millions of hats when you own a small business but you know I'm business development. I am counting liaison I am. HR and social social media expert and the list goes on but I definitely am very proud of my multi. Hyphen career in most people are like slash. Josh Slash several slashes to my career business card. Yeah absolutely we're going to explore. The isn't a little bit but before we do you come. I'm from a very adequate exotic exhauted and also exhorting Langres out. Tell us a little bit about you'll childhoods and why he grew up grew up in the very non exotic Canada I was born and raised in Montreal but I was incredibly lucky to be born to a Chinese mother from Singapore in fact and Lebanese Iranian father to my father was born into Han but was raised in and they kind of have this incredible love story they met in Austria and then they by chance immigrated to Canada where they had my brother other and I and so I grew up in this incredibly idyllic very open country in which the media my first generation immigrant parents sort of had their own business. Ns and I kind of grew up feeling like anything was possible which I think is a very both Canadian thing but also having two parents from two totally different backgrounds kind of allow me and I think it should number one question. My life has always been where are you from. I think because because I look like complete Mishmash of cultures no one can ever sort of place me which I think I've always used to my advantage wantage. What do you remember from your childhood. I had such an incredibly lovely easy encouraging childhood. My parents parents were both on the one hand incredibly strict but on the other hand so open and I loved school wall had a great set of friends kind of was just so lucky in my childhood and even when at the age of thirteen scouted to model my parents were gassed ast Kinda let me at the age of fifteen and sixteen and when I was remember sixteen or seventeen they had to let me spend two months in Milan by myself and I look back going. How on Earth did they have the guts and the courage to let me do that but I think they were so oh. I would like to think that they were so secure in how Boston feminist I already. was that the new I wouldn't get sort of led astray even at my two months in Milan taught me that I did not want to have a fulltime modeling career because it was quite sketchy what you mean by sketches he's got you know. I saw so many girls get eating disorders. I saw so many girls get sort of hit on by horrible sexist man because they were powerless in this sort of fashion industry and it taught me that if I ever worked in the fashion industry I wanted to be on the side where I've got to make the decisions and when I came back from that Summer Marin Milan I decided to go to business school undergraduate business school and I gave up modeling and that's when I went to wharton wow yeah and had you always wanted to be a model or in the fashion industry as you were growing up. I think growing up I always was obsessed with fashion magazines. I subscribe to magazines. I loved upped the continental of the storytelling. I loved the photographs and my parents sort of let me indulge in that modeling. I think it was a great way for me to learn how to become confident young woman and it took me time to get there but I was really actually was so positive in my life life. What was it about modeling that experience that gave you the confidence because I can imagine with some of those other goals you witnessed to develop eating disorders and felt very powerless powerless. The opposite could happen. What was it that gave you the positive outcome. I don't know I don't know if it was the constant encouragement and sort of also the sort of my parents would be like you know looks. Aren't everything imagine a time when you're GONNA get older or I remember I had a buzz cut when I was in college and I they thought it was more like an Audrey Hepburn Pixie cut but he was actually a buzz cut. I remember I called my mom. We're going my God. I got a buzz cut and she said Caroline think of the people who have so much less than that. Your hair will grow back out your looks. Are Nothing like never pay your confidence to your looks. She was quite adamant about not repeating that constantly and it was always about being academically ahead. She's a Chinese Tiger. Mom and I think my parents just said look. That's a wonderful thing to have modeling pulling. The fashion. Industry creativity is beautiful. The business of fashion is fascinating but don't ever catch yourself up by conflicting beauty with confidence or beauty with power or your ability to do anything and so I think that lesson was really ingrained in me so you kind of walked away cold Turkey almost from modeling study business and what was going through your mind about what you were going to do next and did you view it as a stepping steppingstone with the idea of running your own business out. It was that very much still in the rain off a good question. I think my college experience I went to college in America. Gotcha and I really had no idea what to expect and I went to this very hardcore undergraduate Ivy League university that was going to McGill. I was going to stay in Montreal was GonNa live with my parents and just continue being a total nerd there and is that I decided to be a total nerd Morton where it was highly competitive and doggy dog but I loved Dan. I thrived on it and I just sort of like minded curious international students that really I think again were really encouraging. I didn't know what I was going to do. I met Bunch of Management Consultants at work. You either became a banker or management consultant. You know I did interview for marketing position at Avon that was kind of of like like I love. Ud L. Fashion like Yvonne Sword of in the beauty world and I got quite close to that and then I met the management consulting firm that both clarinet I ended up at American and I really fell in love with the people and I then spent two and a half years as a young analysts crunching punching numbers when I graduated but I really fell into that I didn't even know management consulting existed prewar -an but it was such a key point in my career actually and led to so many amazing coincidences and opportunities later on that I'm forever grateful but it was like a the world wind that I barely remember because I think as a young analyst you're just working locked and you're living in a city but not really living in that city 'cause he. It really sleep that long. There's new sleeping I'm really I don't think I'm the best number cruncher either. That's not the skill set. I now realize realized that I was destined to sort of become a master at and I'm grateful to my old consulting for American Arcand for kind of having let me learn about a rule and business fundamentals that I do absolutely think prepared me more than any college. Textbook ever could have fish oil and of course that segues presumably to breach to where we are today albeit you've had had numb a number of years with Tang but from management consulting you joined tank. Yes I did and that was such a weird fortuitous route because actually I'd moved to London London. I was working on a retail company but up in Nottingham doing strategy and achievement AIDS fruits. I was working with the chemist. Yup and Nottingham and somebody introduced me saying look. There's this little cool independent fashion magazine and there are small team mm and they just need some help with their books. Can you just go take a look at them and just see if you can help them out.

"Know. The podcast launch is another business to help start another woman to help you know fail you better. 'cause you know we live in a world that tells us where she a lot of the time and it's exhausting. If you look back what what would you say as being the toughest moment the toughest moment they've been a few social media pilots that have been really tough. I won't lie. I think the toughest moment I'm Anna Business Thare was probably when we went from start up to Skyla up. That's a really dangerous time and it's time that I wouldn't have picked as dangerous because it's like. Hey money's he's coming in the door. Were hiring lots of people gosh. There's more hands on deck. That should be a fantastic time but it's actually a really really dangerous time that time of Garth for a couple of reasons the first is that culturally what makes you great as a start up is not what can make you work as a Skyla if it's a completely a different culture what makes you stop and I'm happiest in startup culture. I have to say is the kind of seat of your pants freewheeling risk-taking move fast and break things things but as a sky up in a grownup business you can't move fast and break things because the things quite expensive when you scaled up and what a key sort of challenges lessons that you've had working with your husband with Jason in business and at home well we have separate bathrooms when we drive to work separately that es que and I'm not even drinking. It wasn't easy at first because I think I had a Nagar about at fissile just grateful that there was someone else to Latin Lloyd and I didn't have to pay them because I had money so it was like Oh yeah and then it was like well. Oh I really want to consult you. I'm used to Maggie making all the decisions you'll baby. It was my baby so so then that was a bit of a and then it was like no. I don't like your idea. I don't go to work and then he's. ID's generally did work and that was knowing and then it was. I was like Oh hang on. I want to be the boss and then I realized you know what actually impose on a I really don't want to say are it's a much harder job than mine. It does not apply to any of my strengths gopher and that was a few years ago that I really rolling question that I wasn't jockeying for position anymore and I let my ego guy that must be hard to do sometimes though was there a catalyst was something that happened or because it takes his maturity and strength to do that I think I realized that I was fighting for the job didn't want like I really didn't want it so I let how leaning to my strengths and even to the point now nobody reports to me in any official capacity custody because of a managing paypal Siamese of managing particularly young women for about adding more than twenty years and I'm a bit tired of it and bent out by not. I don't do it anymore. I think the hottest times of working together a behind us but you know there were times when we just try to quit. I quit you quit. I quit. We take you have to take it intends to threaten to quit. Let's do you talked about managing young men and you know we have very similar values and WanNa make easier for women to co create a future society and yeah. That's so important. What do you think if it all how have career problems changed for young women today versus when you started in women's media such good question? I think that there is probably an expectation of more flexibility in terms live from harm being able to work four days or whatever it is by the same token I think that as a boss their expectations of availability that more than they used to be you you know being able to contact people at all hours which is why I always make sure when new people join the company if they work with May in my area that I say Hey I might amount of slack you allow is but I don't ever expect your apply until you're next back at work. I think that way were much more focused on the ladder. The career ladder aw and I think what I try to explain to people now is that it's more like a lashes career pods and more like a lashes because there are very few ladders and you ladder limits not and what's much more important now is being more lateral in your school set so not just being able to write because then what happens happens when podcasts come along and suddenly pay plot rating anymore you WANNA be able to try to do video and you want to know about social and you want to know a bit about podcasting a and the more laterally certainly as a content create at you can guard the more valuable yergin Abadia future employers and I try to say also particular not to my content teams daren't get obsessed with this idea of progressing and becoming an ETA because it is actually more dispensable than content creators is content creators of the ones that can get the profile that can get the following and that are probably more valuable to employers talking of advice. You know forty seven yes. So what advice would you give your thirty year old self. I probably would say have shot of Tequila before you get the Tattoo. UH-HUH I got a tattoo on my I did a where was it and if you can tramp stamp or scrag sometimes nine on my lower back Amy Sherman style go with the low. That's May vary regional. It's an Aztec design. I'm glad you sorry I I was at a I swipe my head space at the I was a single parent. I was kind of grieving for. Ib that I'd lost half way throw pregnant. I'd say I guess I would say forget about the checklist forget about the way you thought things were going to guard and just be open to the way they might be and slow down. Don't be in such a rush because I think being in such a rush to the editor I and have a baby and then have another baby and then by big house that's ultimately what calls my marriage to collapse and I think that foundations I've come to learn is the most sexy word but the most crucial thing whether it's in romantic relationships relationships in friendships or encourages anything that happens quickly will probably unhappy quickly because when the wind blows you house will fall down if you don't have those foundations built so do you have a philosophy or a motto that you live by in your life poppy king who is the first lady startup and female entrepreneurs that I've anew she started lipstick line when she was I think nineteen and they were no other people her age or any judge outside the estate Laura's in the Revlon's that were making lipsticks and I've reconnected with her a few years ago. Just when I was starting my career in a magazine she was starting her career in lipstick beauty editor at the time so we kind of came up together but she sort of flamed out in Australia and went overseas and did some things over there and we met up and we were talking about what had happened to us in the preceding twenty years and some of the bad things in the disappointments in the phillies and she said you Ni- success just this confirms what you already know about yourself failures the Arne treat. HR and so we've got a word called flaming which is failing and learning which is a way to make yourself so feel better about filing what I learned from these value but it's true would've have learned flange whatever learnings paying off learnings and so you say you know. I guess it's like there was the silver lining on this really shitty cloud. It's what have I learned from this because if you're not filing then you probably not trying. I mean there's no entrepreneur who won't file file because you can't grow in less you make some wrong decisions as well as some right ones so I guess it's what you can learn from from filings the floating brilliant motto brilliant well. Thank you so much. Thank you for having been such a pleasure to sit next to you and unjust learn about this amazing journey that you've been on and this incredible platform that you've built to give women are voice now our listeners. I know UH likely towards know bit more about you. How can they find you? That's not stupid question. Hey sorry you can go to any chains whether wherever you get your podcasts and and if you search Mama Mia m. a. m. a. m. i. A. You can find costs or you can just switch no filter for the interview podcast that I do and then an instagram is my platform of choice so it's just at may afraid Mun. WJ remain thank you so much.

I love listening to thank you. Thank you thank you and I love how Nia is so passionate and brave. I mean must've taken such a lot of great to hanging on that television job and insist that she got the redundancy she deserved yeah absolutely and of course it was that redundancy that helped her start doc herblock back in two thousand and seven which became the thriving business memories today indeed it is I mean his career advice to women who worked for her was really interesting as well not to think of their career as a ladder with just step up step up peanut upwards progression but to also think of it as a lattice with sideways diagnose steps step speed just as valuable thing that.
"stop" Discussed on Don't Stop Us Now! Podcast
"I'm really relieved and grateful that I felt fortified enough to do that. Yeah absolutely and then you went on to stop Mama Mia from your living room I did well didn't save my living room. It was it was every my house because I two laptops so I I just walked around my cup of tea my laptop looking for someone to perch not knowing what I was doing but knowing that that was a gap in the market and I believe democracy in that gap that I wanted to feel because back in two thousand seven women's websites will vary silage so there were parenting sites or there were gossip sites. Although cooking sites will they were beauty we saw it. I was interested in those things but also news and current affairs and culture and I want it all of those things in one place which sounds very obvious now because at towle used to getting Ou- social chlamydia fades with a story about Syria next to a story about the Kardashians but back then people couldn't understand it. I mean women could understand it but I remember trying to explain the concept tour. You're a man in an advertising agency and he was like women. Wow that's a really interesting nation sort really just for our listeners. How goes this? This was around ten years ago. That's just crazy as a really interesting niche but I guess it must have been hard to she then think about what what's the actual proposition particularly advertises bringing money didn't get it yeah so I know so I was just focused on building an audience and I had no business plan. I had my plan. I it just was creating every post teaching myself card resizing images moderating comments in sometimes it'd be two thousand comments on a pilot and I'd have to moderate them because I didn't know that at the time there was no ability for me to pray moderate comments ahead to motivate them as they came in live on the side and then you delete someone's comment and then they'll leave another comment demanding to know why they commented Advain delighted that sounds hideous it was hectic and it was like it nowadays seven days a week and I had another baby during that time she did in ninety eight. I don't pretend that I I was kind of just you know but I was breastfeeding through the night answering comments and working long hours but all I knew is is that I wanted to build this audience and kind of imagined that someone will just come along and by May which shows you how little I understood because my husband pointed out. There's nothing thing to buy. Its you walking around the house laptop like you come by that and I was like Oh also you couldn't skylight which I learned after two years of earning like adenoid three dollars Google ads and running myself absolutely into the ground so it wasn't until my husband who was looking for a business to kind of invest he's timing decided to offer his services inci Wadi Fi come in as well and we try to actually monetize it in the first thing we need to do is stop it from being a single point pointed failure in you and make it into a women's website edited by you not with every piece of content created by and all the comments moderate and all the comments Rhonda Rider by and I said that's the worst idea evolve it won't work and of course it were and he was right because what was the tentative. You are omnipresent in some ways. Is You know you've we've heard about all the different channels and programs and Poke Austin sites up Mama Mia has but then the social media channels to connect as well. How do you manage that for you personally that always on nature of of Your Business and your presence so I've lived a very happy twitter free life for a long time? Now facebook has moved more to groups. Instagram must really really love but again I try to stay disconnected from the commentary around what I share having said that I've got to be super super careful of what I share because I can share picture of May doing something silly on the weekend and then it'll end up in the Daily Mail L. and now writer whole story about it so that we'd and disconcerting but you have to accept that as a public figure and social media is like if I'm putting it out yet not like they came onto my property in stock a photo lands through my window so I just have to be careful having said that I try to use my platform to do good things like to support women's businesses all shutters of what my stomach looks like you know to Cape Israel because it can be really easily seductive to get into that thing of all just post a photo auto and I'm looking nice today or when of got something good to say whereas I think it's also important to be honest about the vulnerable times one area that we Taylor taught you about because I think it will really resonate for many people is your experience of suffering from anxiety yeah. Maybe you could talk about what what that journey has been like for you. Show I guess looking back now. I can say that I had anxiety even as a kid. I just kind of hold. That's what life was like lowering that my parents. The home from work had been killed in a car accident. When I was attained I started to have sex warring that I would get? Hi even though I hadn't actually even had sex and and I knew how HIV was transmitted but just bang super health anxiety around warring then anxiety around flying so we tidy often it will attach itself to something might be tunnels. It might be spiders bay flying it might be what if I have cancer your anxiety will can get very good at attaching itself to something so I had a really bad bout of health anxiety about six seven years ago when I had like a panic attack lasted about eleven days this is the one where you thought you had count Yeh Eh and I saw my therapist and when I got home for excels on holiday at the time and she sent me to a psychiatrist who specialized in Zion and hey diagnosed I may with generalized anxiety disorder but he said once you've had one of these bad panic attacks you'll probably get another one. It makes you more susceptible and it had just been sorry completely gos- okay that he said you know you might WanNa consider medication and I was a little bit reticent at first because I think there's probably internalized stigma that we just have about medication and also what I realized that my anxiety made me so sensitive. I didn't have caffeine or anything so I was very worried about altering my mood that anxiety medication occasion might alter how I felt anyway I had besting I have adid and I've never looked back from it. The drug Alexa pro and it's just been quite life changing soy from May. It's not that I don't sometimes have bright throwing Zaidi and it's Simon stress. It's nothing like stress and stress that can handle stress actually Eh. I thrive on it. In a way I can find stress quite motivating but anxieties just like that pete existential dread and you stomach or just Maine's getting through life is just really difficult if you can't fly and I had to getting on planes all the time and that's one of the things that my anxiety at a touch self to my life was just getting really hard to leave just logistically pod and so now I get appliances. If I'm getting into a neighbor it's not a problem and my health anxieties now gone but it's under control. I've actually just gone back to therapy just to try to sold a few things out. I'm a big believer in therapy. My mom was a therapist so I've grown up in a family where it's seen as just like going to the dentist all going to the car pro the Osteo. Will whatever happens today. It's just something that you do to help manage something. That was such an interesting deep dive into exile because I think it's really misunderstood Cambay. I know I misunderstand it because I've just smits link from. What did you think anxiety well? I think this the confusion between really high levels of stress and anxiety attached touchstone to something on it completely utterly debilitating. Sometimes I'll be stressed about something and my anxiety will touch itself to something else as you so then I'll go okay what's going on right now a my anxious about something and I'm really worried about flying but what I'm actually worried about is this other thing. RV He and it could be a work thing. It could be something to do with my kids on my something else that I'm anxious about the thing that you often ill attach itself to is not necessarily as a -sarily the cause of it if that makes okay sorry so sometimes obviously when I'm really stressed I'm more prior to anxiety but they different things. Yeah makes sense yeah that does make sense and that's why I need to be careful. Am I getting enough sleep. Am I out of my retain. One of the things that can greg's item as traveling and funnily enough holidays really really anxious around holidays and it's a weird thing. I've heard it's not the most uncommon thing because anxiety often if you're prone to it you need to have have a pretty busy mind but like a cattle dog names to have a lot of jobs on the go or it'll kind of tear up the garden the anxious mind like structure and likes retain and likes destruction and you go on holiday and suddenly you've got all this time and you've got all of these space too thin. Can you know what times breakfast I I don't know what time would you want it to be. What we GONNA do today where we're going to sleep tonight and everything's new and Sofa May that can be atro- makes me great fun to go and I never understood why I always wanted to come home early from every holiday I'd ever been on including my honeymoon? Go until I learned more about anxiety. Wow Yeah joked about the sleep and everything what other tools or things you'd recommend others trucks assize. I'm also a really being flavor medication and I am not going to pretend that I don't rely on medication. Heavily exercise is non negotiable for me. I used to think 'cause I had an eating disorder when I was young when I was a teenager Belania and so I've always been really since my twenties he's often very strict about exercising and I always used to think that it had to do with body image and it again eilly since learning more about anxiety. I've realized that I've been instinctively using it to trait my anxiety exercise. Varying Zeidan Depression Kansas Bay an absolute game changer so now I exercise seven days a week. It's non-negotiable Bill. I don't even think about it. It's like brushing. My taste has anxiety ever stop you from being able to take risks gigs. I think he got the business relate nor I love taking risks having said that my husband is the CEO so ultimately there are risks to take together as co owners owners of the business but one of our core values is measure twice cut once because I can be too into taking risks whereas Hayes very much. It's like we've got a deuce measuring before we make the cut so whereas like these let's do this. Let's do these so if anything I'm much more just just pushing forward pushing forward pushing forward pushing forward. I've got ten podcasts that I want to launch this year and I just have to try not to break the people around me so just moving on now. What a successful it like for me a Friedman? I wanted to stop Mama Mia because I knew what it felt to look in a magazine and not say anyone that looked like May I knew it felt like to stand in a bookstore and not say any book that was about miscarriage at a time before the Internet when I'd lost a baby halfway through my pregnancy pregnancy and I felt like the only person in the world who had failed my baby in to that level and I felt completely line and I didn't want any other women have to feel Weiss mom as dotted with this instinctive desire for every woman to fail sane and racial and included and represented and sorry success to me feels like making a difference for women whether it's by posting a photo of my stomach and making someone go thank God I'm not the only one who doesn't have a thigh gap in a rock hot add six pack six pack two days after giving birth. So how will you know when you're done. I'll aww done done is always.

Toner for like is not even know that if I'm really honest because I'd never even done any printing and I was like am I going to be able to do it. Can I do this stuff so that was also scary. I haven't had the scare mongering worry about failure because I don't believe in failure is just not in mind mindset ever believe you can fail. I believe that things things go wrong. You learn from it and then you do the next thing but it's never failure Sorenson lied. I can't fail Qanoni learn a bunch of stuff. I don't really know so they fighting bet.

I'm very pleased to say we haven't gotten because we're building it in its slightly different spirit. One thing I'm curious about is you'll relationship with money because you know having heard about your childhood. How do you think about money so you as a means to an end and to enjoy in life had Latin the reason that I never thought I'd do is stop his worried about pay packets now sort of like okay.

Sometimes you relationship with money impacts. You know whether you had to take the risk of going to do something thing. ENTREPENEURSHIP will no. I mean it was always in my head. As fear of you know that was the reason I told myself I would never do startup right which was liable the money Reynaud because the money and then you get to a point well I got to a point which was not a point Idaho to get by the way because this was completely ridiculous that I I was earning a lot of money by and he didn't many happier doesn't money everyone knows that is true and made my life luxurious it made it easier easy mental could treat my friends and family in throw massive parties and unquote name from policies good to the scout them back down to them in my house other than in Congress places but you know as long as I can provide for my family in that's my immediate family my extended family than it doesn't really matter and it's also the other thing I know is I know I can always make ends meet which is sort of thing the Baco which is if the worst comes to the West can i.

Komo pop continuing to climb and sometimes resist being the only one within certain opinion about what's the right strategy. Ford which you kind of number one a piece of advice for younger women so ultimately for me. It's all about when you get your joy from now that sounds really luxurious and it sounds sounds like career luxury to be able to say that you should do something that brings you joy but I think when I look back at my career the moments where I've changed or done something different is where I know that in spite of doing a good job in spite of delivering the result so ending more money or whatever it might be. I didn't feel feel the joy anymore there wasn't I didn't come into work and felt like I was fighting a fight that I believed in so do what you believe in an have a passion for what you day. So what advice would you give your thirty route south. If you could go back in time so at thirty I it was quite marmite. which is the? US Hey the UK equivalent veggie might that mean for our hate right so the thing the drive. We've talked about the passion that I have the resilience. The constant such a demand to navigate knows the on suggest the starting point it meant the is many people loved me as hated me and in my twenties probably through to my early thirties so at thirty was when I started to realize that what drove me drove others to distraction and often reaction and sort of rejection and I think that the advice I would give myself then something until myself regular. which is you have to get to know the person that you're dealing with when you're trying to do things differently so as much as I would argue data and that's what we talked about about and I'd be relentless onslaught of missions to do things you know understanding why the other person was saying no and putting myself in their shoes often it would be an APP director who would try and block what I was doing because they didn't advertising to be impacted rightly and then trying to frame everything everything from their argument as well as just being a little less than a little more collaborative in still being resilient city and having that stuff so my third year old south would have been told by the forty five year old may stop being mom might be a tweak lit which is the smack in the UK is got marmite covering on it but even if you don't mind Mama it's bearable and you can eat it so don't change yourself? Don't change the ingredients agents who you are but literally make a bit more palatable. Turn them down tearing down a bit and just listen harder to know what people are saying but the signals it knows that giving you which is often more of an indicator of why they're saying no on why you might be having as you can tell my career had quality of conflict in it to kind of change outcomes and I think in the early days I probably created all of that conflict myself just by being site bloody minded well great advice to yourself off stopping say bloody d have a motor in life. I do have many mottos by the way but my main mater transpires the apparently something Amazon's Day which is what called have Mike History. I've been saying it for twenty. Sir is obviously spirit. I should've been an entrepreneur before now but yeah what college have fun make. History is my overwhelming I tried to build teams with businesses by live by and then along the way a helpful ones like if your market make friends with financing get married to tech if you're just starting out seek forgiveness not permission Russian and like they roll off because I'm a marketeer right yeah but that work work hard have fun. History released sounds like you up. It does the making history. It is the thing that ultimately. I think matters because if you're lucky enough I've been to find something you really care about.

How resilience must have taken during those nine years trying to persuade bosses they needed to change the business model and charge for online access and I it was an incredibly long time and what a great example of someone believing in something so passionately they just won't give up and she he was proved right shoe was Katie's approach to failure also really resonated with me. She says there's no such thing as failure. I think your words it was something like I believe that things go wrong and you learn from it and then you do the Knicks theme but it's never failure and that is such a great way of framing things. Oh Oh yeah really is and actually I signed up tortoise and I absolutely love it. I don't think she's GonNa fail to be honest and if she does she's going to be learning exactly well..

The new offices so thanks for hostess Naipoto is exciting to be here and one of the things that we usually do when we start. These interviews is is just ask you a really sometimes hard question. which is how would you describe what you do today today? I am a CO founder. Onda of a entrepreneur starts up here in London good tortoise and I would describe myself as doing anything that needs to get dumb but prior riotous six months ago I would have said I was a veteran of news cool. You don't like a veteran.

We're going to really delve into that journey that you've been awnings in where you are today with Tortoise Otis but before we do that I wanna go back in time and ask you. How do you remember your childhood. Oh I remember achieving mainly as growing up in single parent household even though my dad was around until about eleven and then it was my mother so my mother was a strong force which Gotcha in weight will need strength is a life at my mother bought up myself my brother my brother's logistic and I remember having this sort of life that was yeah I never knew I was pool which is unusual relinquish shook and make me emotional in the first five minutes entitled say if a talk about my childhood but interestingly Dingley. My childhood wasn't that simple so my mother then decided she was going to send me to Catholic school. I also told by Nuns I wasn't too Catholic and at the age of seven they found I'm Dr Wilson to Catholic because they were like you can do headed. Communion is like what is that they said well you church every Sunday charge on they were like Okay Mama summoned school and I got baptized and it was nice not to in will pull the second was coming to the UK so we got to be held up the new converts to Catholicism so I remember that but also I remember my childhood that sort of idea of never really fitting in in but belonging which is sort of an interesting thing which is I will save seven that I had two sisters and that my father had been married before gosh so my childhood is sort of Staccato Staccato finding out things about myself that I didn't really know until after the fact so we didn't know it with the second family then went on to have more. We didn't know the Catholic he thought we were taught by nuns otherwise why would you into by nuns and then I didn't always pool and found out that we sort of lived in a council house when I was fourteen genius of John Now. You're going to be surprised you think you're gonNA think I was a bit backward and it was because money wasn't thing in our household and because I'd always been into schools where the had pay for me to go to school three 'til eleven by That's why they were so upset. We went Catholics. I'm eleven to eighteen. I was on a scholarship into a private school about five minutes away. It was anyone else fourteen and I wanted to go the ski trip with the other children that my mom pointed out that actually what hadn't hadn't realized about the fact that we were living accounts the state and we didn't have a lot of money and she wasn't a working mother. She was a single parent on what had passed me by. Why so I had this sort of slightly odd childhood that was sort of a delicate one hand with lots of weird things happened. Gosh is amazing. And how do you think ah that childhood impacted than where you went in your Kariya question. I mean I'm pretty resilient but most quite not good at sort of thinking about how to make things happen. That don't seem obvious so I think in my career I didn't really know I wanted to be in journalism. Awesome all sort of in the commercial side of Judson I actually wanted to go into educational fundraising off to university in Japan and when I was living in Japan tiny penny black in his first government he got rid of the assistant places game which was what I was the beneficiary of that so that means that you can have as a parent or parents if you will child Pasta the eleven plus you had a means tested top pop by the government go to any school so I went to private school because of my mom's situation and all situation all of my fees we pay. All of my clothes were paid all my train fad lunches. Everything is really big am brilliant way for people all to create social mobility so because it got rid of it the government. I was like right. I'm fired up. I'M GONNA Comeback Educational Fundraising. That's what I WANNA do. People people from my background's be able to have the same access education and learning and is changed. My life ended up. Oxford was amazing. I went and had twenty something job interviews it with charities in the charity sector for summarizing and everyone offered me a job but they offered me a job unpaid right to which I said I can't really afford to do that. What's your one lovely woman. Took me aside and said okay. Let's give you some advice. Go get a job in sales and marketing right. Go get the experience and then come back and when you've got the experience you'll be able to get a job because you'll be coming in at an experience level sire as what I did he why you were looking for educational fundraising fundraising rose. Someone advised the going get a normal job. If he like in sales marketing. You ended up in media at times. Is that right. He owns the Times. How did you fine media because I would in the media back in the nineties and it was a pretty Blakey world. What were your impressions in that first early stage it really plaguing absolutely am sort of inappropriately so we can talk about Blokhin Blakey inappropriately Blakey but it never affected me in the sense that if I was ever on the receiving end of it I was cool out quite early on from the lunging in the lift to the he just behaviors in boardrooms to cooling out to hr if someone said if you know what you're talking about in experienced a lot of the stuff that I think many women of our generation did particularly in media but on the other side I mean it is the most amazing industry to be Paul and the privilege of working at the Times now at the job I went into without they they gave me advertising sales titles. I did two days went to see this lady Leslie Web mazing woman who ran the HR department at the time for training and the thing that was amazing talking about her. She understood the human everyone so when I went to see her in said thanks for the safe. May It's terrible. I hate it and Mike and sell Advertising Co.. Cooling career in distribution companies to take an ad in a report not show this is for me. She's your history graduate on me and I said yes. She said well you know and she's done research on me and she said why don't you go and spend a day in the archives. Thought okay Hokey you better than selling advertising at the time and this lovely man took me into the archives in the times has been published in seventeen ninety five and it has all of its archive going back to seventeen ninety five. They showed me all this amazing stuff like how the Times is that during history so you see all the people that make up to the top of Everest so tenzing and Edmund Hillary are- but this oversight photographer photographer was the times photographer so he had also made up to the mountain but wasn't in any of the stories including the opening of the Tuten commune's into the Times photographer died as well as the mystery illness that Calvin in the others they went into the team. How amazing amazing it sounds like they really tapped into your values and purpose under certain that storytelling face was amazing just that day that is the reason that I stayed doing what I do and I think it was that day and then as I left Evans said you will you do realize that the Times doesn't make money and at the time of being published in seventeen ninety five in the mid nineteen ninety s and it's never made a penny and the reason the I stayed in journalism and the reason I love what I do is because finding ways to make money for bronze like The Times that I think have a purpose in not just you know L. lives as consumers informing entertaining and educating us but they have a huge Rolls Plan Society in Healthy Democracies that we need to find find a way to make them profitable because you can't always rely on large philanthropy voters and I'd love to Segue and because what you ended up I'm doing over? The decades that you spent at News Corp in at the time was really pioneering. It seems to me from what I've read pioneering the whole getting a consumer to pay to read news story. You know the whole digital payroll as the enormous disruption of traditional media newspaper organizations nations occurred when the Internet really arrived in force. How hard was that so actually the active asking people to pay for things they value is not very very hard transpires. The act of selling into an organization is extremely high. I I ran digital in the two thousand thousand and I was the digital director of the times and Sunday Times. I had actually just come back from traveling around India. It was the editor of The Times Time Gentlemen Cope each sorta to come up and said is this thing called the Internet and we need somebody to run tonight's that oh I know nothing about the Internet Patriot said but you're young so I got this great job and I came in ask super excited and I was quite surprised by how much money we were spending even then in two thousand I was quite surprised by what I would call the wild west behavior all sort of ability to the communists will be great and none of it really sort of resonated while none of it sat at Twelve none of it felt real it felt sort of even then emperor's new clothes that euro also was this the late nineties early two thousands.
