"Now how did you first see that. As a parent. I wouldn't think necessarily like cia. Training and parenting have a lot. I would think those van diagrams are just two separate circles right. But what even gave you this concept. I love that you said van diagram because that is totally how. I've used to see a. And i describe it like that a lot because i thought of like. Here's my life over here at the cia and then it became apparent and they're like these two separate spheres but really there is so much overlap in it wasn't until i had observed away. My husband was parenting. So he had three kids when we met and they were six eight and nine and he was already using some of these principles. And i remember. I was kind of skeptical at first. Because i had viewed visas parts of my life. And i always thought i would be more of a helicopter type parent. I was a lot more anxious than he was. Of course. I was coming from the analytic side. I was someone who's more data driven. More kind of black and white. The way i viewed the world or my husband is much more kind of suave lives in the gray true spy i suppose and you know he was using some of these principles and i noticed that he gave his kids so much autonomy but he also just kinda gave him this independence. They were making purchases in the store by themselves. They were all able to ride a motorcycle at those ages. They were shooting bowen arrow. They would just really interesting kids so well rounded and that's one of the key qualities that we emphasize throughout the book. It's this idea of being well rounded because when you're conducting espionage you're building relationships with other people with an ultimate goal of getting them to agree to a clandestine relationship with the cia riots union to build trust with them and one of the best ways to build trust is to build a rapport through common interests and socio officers often want to be very multifaceted so that they can build these relationships with people in so that's a concept that we've adapted with our kids and that was one of the things that i noticed right off the bat with ryan's kids when we were dating was that they were so multifaceted and they i mean they were more interesting than i was and i was nearly thirty years old and i was like. Oh my goodness these kids have all these hobbies their incredible and so i knew he was doing something right. You might think from the outside that teaching kids to ride motorcycles and shoot bows arrows and being ready for any outcomes that that would create kids who are constantly looking over their shoulder who were fearful or who lived in our reality where something really bad's going to happen all the time but in practice you have found that's actually the opposite is true exactly so yeah it does the opposite.

So start right with some fun facts about me So I'm originally from Ghana West Africa and I I actually grew up in South Africa. Small country called Swaziland. The Kingdom of size is one of the last remaining market in the world And it has about one point. Four million people so from very small tastes in Africa so I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs by parents. Aaron started off as teachers and I had the I guess I was fortunate. Watch them set up the own businesses whilst they were teachers indeed My Mom's side of the retail business. My Dad started my dad and my mom together started a consulting business in on. I was the African parents that to gifted children involved in your businesses so I I was involved in various aspects sometimes running by MOMS retail business. When shows away in my dad's business As dry vice over as Within the office realm so give me some good experiences. I was growing up so that I started my sneak of business so my mom used to as to start her business she should bring home some goods loss us as you said. Travel there on Welsh because back in she brings him good spots in for me. It was necas most of the time and I used to go to school. So Primary School in high school in I'll be walking. People become mention my sneakers and it took me a long time. Jackie free to create. That can actually make a business again. Why I'm wearing? I can actually bring to the people make some money so I sent it to source some sneakers locally inside. I got them for about twenty dollars. I got the start up capital from my mom I got them between Dawes. in-and-out seldom for about sixty dollars. So I mean some good profits in good the public money off that business I did that for a few years. And then I ventured into music so music writing music producing music. And I'm I'm doing the Polish Abang concerts and stuff like that so Figuring out how the music business works in that giving another arm armaments to learn how to build a business to learn how to make money radium. Each I moved here to the US. When I was nineteen I move for school? ooh And I studied computer science It was very interesting because I actually. I wanted to study business but I remember one time whereas Doing my assignment a friend of mine. Who Mentions me till this day your side Vm? He he told me hey. I think you'd be really good at computer. Sciences should try it out and I tried chided up and I never looked back. Site initially went there to study business and I change into computer science I studied in the smell coach. Westminster College in Fulton Missouri every small casing but again heavy time. GimMe opportunity to focus and to build myself as an engineer Either back on payments in the payments industry so I started off my sophomore year. Interim Mastercard work through software engineering in Minnie eventually a fulltime start working for them within biometric authentication. So that's been my core experience in fulltime. So that's been fun and lastly ask you Just recently moved to the bay air so the months ago I moved here actually three days ago as exactly three months. Oh still new to the area. I'm looking forward to exploring the era meeting more people right so this is just like A visual of my journey so the first one obviously a very happy mander was a struggle. School is struggling computer science met. That's what I studied in the struggle by that was the stock to Mike On right side Suicide my former company mastercard. I was basically working with the team on pitching a new product. And then on the bottom. NAFTA's about two weeks ago at my company Verizon media where I was lunching my product media commerce across Fanti company so that was finding new and in the middle was before I left mastercard. I didn't own your career panel where talking about the importance of knowing you are in making taking that risk to do exactly what you'd like to do in which for me was moving from software engineering product which is really fun. And then on the Bottom Reich. Mike is Me and Harvard. Business School with few Khalid's their house. Basically doing some diversity recruiting which something really passionate about in I still I don You're doing that for her as needed right so started. So what is product management. And so this is the industry definition. I have watched hundreds of Product School Jones and I always see this. Come up all the time if you go if you do a quick. Google search is the same as an intersection said a defining part on the intersection of US tech and business and then in the middle of magic you there. That's what they call the product management. What I agree with this Sunday by actually like using take a few aspects is a big element that's missing so this stakeholder management basically between us experience on January and business which could be marketing in sales and so forth? But there's no immensely add tate's the product manage. I feel like being being a product manager. Also it means that you need to manage yourself so I think that's using here so my a different version. I think it's missing you as a product manager. It's a big element there and you'll see wise relates to imposter syndrome and then there's some other Aspects that could doesn't actually say what you do as a product manager doesn't indicate why you do what you do and then how you GonNa do those things knock greedy evidence within the diagram so wise park management so I think I believe park management basically communists to things. So it's the why and the watts. That's what the product manager owns to the Y.. is going to be the traffic strategy. And then what is is going to be the product roadmap that you define based product strategy And then basically across this you're GonNa define what commensal wet solvent that always problems to solve in product management by product manager. It's your job to kind of define on actually decide what's important to solve in prioritize and in all this is brought together by the product. That's the bottom so this is my definition of park measuring

"Over there, golden, coal and some other things. Tourism used to be a big part of for that for of Swazi income. What was interesting Swaziland is Africa used to have very restrictive laws in terms of casinos. Swaziland didn't so many years ago when I was growing up old people from South Africa, especially from Johannesburg used to take weekend trips to Swaziland and go to casinos and brought in huge dollars with. Vacations and travel and gambling and went South Africa's laws liberalized and their loud casinos, which was built in all over the country. That really impacted. I think the Swazi tourism. So they've all they're always looking around in finding and finding new ways to to bring money into the country and bring industry into the country. Well, you know, it's it's the perfect example of of a population of about one point three million people. So you don't have sort of fifty million or eighty million Kenya or or or Ethiopia save a small population and the importance of focusing on what we call sort of in the world part of our doctrine for Africa's developmental commerce, which is all about eight trade and not aid. Because I think you will underscore with me the the wisdom of engaging.

"Of course, being a forestry company it employed, a large number of people Bethlehem state fellow for many years and over the years. My father did little deals with the kingdom of Swaziland. And two in those deals of land was swapped. They went to land that was gonna be flooded for a damn they wanted land for other purposes. My father swapped land with them and ended up with a whole range of properties all over Swaziland Muslims, which were developed all sold off to Swazis. What is interesting in that? You can't come in as a foreigner own land. Swazis can own them. But because we owned land there for so many years well before those laws came in. We were grandfathered in so. So we're kind of rare as a foreign owner of Landon in Swazi. And most of the land is owned by the king. What you know? What's interesting here Craig is for our listeners. So they can understand this unique location of Swaziland small landlocked monarchy. It's one of the last day. I think it is the last remaining monarchy on the continent of Africa.

As much as I love my adopted country. When the wheels of the aircraft touchdown in Africa. It's always a homecoming for me as well. Very special feeling, isn't it? It's a very special feeling heavens. No matter how often I now I go there multiple times a year. It never goes away. You know, I've been lucky enough to be successful in in my little endeavour in aviation in the US, and it's such a pleasure to be able to go back and figure out ways to invest in Africa. In the country. Which is in desperate need like a lot of African countries of outside investment. And it's not awesome of American company will come along and put money in into S fourteen. So we've been doing that. And we're just doing our first planting of hundreds and hundreds of trees at the moment. So it's still gonna be several years before this is producing farm. But on a good front. It's in an area in teeny. Where there's not a lot of employment. But there are quite a lot of people that have to travel far if they are looking for employment does bring jobs and that does bring. Vital investment in the country that they really need.

But I do spend a lot of time in the central part of the country between Manzini in Mubin, which are the two big cities enforc- land. There's a lot of agriculture and huge pineapple is correct. Huge pineapple growing and processing export they they did benefit a little bit too in sanctions against South Africa, quite a few companies move their operations and headquarters to Swaziland. At that time. So they are but some manufacturing here and there and also like a lot of developing countries they've been able to do some. Clothing manufacturer and things like that. They are also some mining interests over there, golden, coal and some other things. And then tourism used to be a big part of for that of Swazi income. What was interesting with Swaziland is Africa used to have very restrictive laws in terms of casinos Swazi, then didn't so many years ago when I was growing up old people from South Africa, especially from the Bulgaria used to take weekend trips to Swaziland and go to casinos and brought in huge dollars with the vacations and travel and gambling and went South Africa's laws liberalized, and they allow casinos which were built in all over the country. That really impacted. I think the Swazi tourism. So they've all they're always looking around in finding and finding new ways to to bring money into the country and bring industry into the country. Well, you know, it's it's a perfect example of of a population of about one point three million people. So you don't have sort of fifty million or eighty million suggests Kenya or or or Ethiopia save a small population and the importance of focusing on what we call oasis world part of our doctrine for Africa's developmental commerce, which is all about eight trade and not aid. Because I think you will underscore with me the the wisdom of engaging. These remarkable cultures in Africa from teeny across the continent into the north people really want to take care of their families. They want to be self sufficient, don't you find that to be the case? That's absolutely the case. As with your experience.
