I will take a check. You recognize her from anchoring on CNN, CNBC, and Bloomberg. The only financial expert you don't need a dictionary to understand. The cold lappin. Today we're gonna do something a little different. In this episode, I'm gonna be throwing it back to 2008 to talk about the subprime mortgage crisis. One of the goals on the show is to break down the headlines, and yes, I do unpack headlines that are in the current news cycle, but I also think it's important to dissect the hot button topics from our past, especially when those hot button topics are historical moments that financially crushed innocent people like you and me. It is true that the only way to protect yourself from repeating history is to understand it, so that you can make different choices in the future. The housing crisis is one that's worth understanding, especially in today's climate with questions swirling around crypto being a bubble. Depending on how old you are or where you grew up, you may have a really different understanding of the subprime mortgage crisis. Some people who experienced financial losses during that time have irreversible distrust of big banks and or the government's ability to provide for the health of the economy. If you weren't affected by the crash, you might not understand why some people are so wary of the financial system, all these years later. Sure, you can understand why someone would be scarred after losing money intellectually. But to distrust the whole government and banking system, why? The answer is rooted in how the banks caused the subprime mortgage crisis and got away mostly unscathed. Real estate was all fun and games until the 2008 crash. There's a long history of the U.S. government, really encouraging home ownership and out of that came some investment vehicles like mortgage backed securities. So WTF is a mortgage backed security? Well, banks were essentially smushing mortgages that they owned together and baking them into one big mortgage pie. Then they would sell investors slices of that pie and give investors pieces of the interest that the banks were making on these mortgages. Throughout the years, investors had gotten more and more excited about mortgage backed securities because they were told that they were safe investments with a steady rate of return. So banks did what anyone does when they have a popular product. They made more. Before this time, banks were really careful and selective when giving out mortgages, because if they gave a mortgage to someone who wasn't able to pay back the loan, also known as defaulting, the bank would potentially lose money. But when mortgage backed securities proved to be a profitable offering for banks, banks wanted to find more ways to generate more mortgages. So, lenders started issuing sub prime mortgages, which were loans given to people that would have typically been rejected for a mortgage, maybe because they had low credit or maybe just because flat out they couldn't afford a house. Sometimes these subprime mortgages were brought on by the borrower. Other times, lenders pushed people into mortgage offerings, they couldn't afford. For example, some lenders would offer adjustable rate mortgages at really, really low rates to lure people in. You may be thinking, didn't pay lenders, I think that some of these subprime mortgages were a recipe for disaster. Didn't they assume that at least some of these people would default on their mortgages and investors would lose money from morphed backed securities? Actually, some lenders felt that mortgage backed securities were pretty foolproof. The financial world assumed that even if someone defaulted on their mortgage, the lender could repossess the house, and then sell it to another perspective, home buyer. Many people considered this home repossession option like an insurance policy for mortgage backed securities. Therefore, mortgage backed securities earned a triple-A investment rating. The rating given to the safest investments. The encouragement and ease of home ownership led more people to buy houses and as we know because of the rules of supply and demand when there is more demand for something, the price tends to rise. And boy, oh boy, did housing prices rise. At the time, some people thought this was proof that real estate and mortgage backed securities were a good investment. In reality, the housing market was a bubble. In finance, a bubble is a scenario in which a particular investment is overvalued. Meaning the price is going up because of popularity or supply and demand or speculation. Factors other than the investment actually generating more intrinsic value. And like any bubble, financial bubbles, pop. And when they do, it's disastrous for investors. The bubble indeed burst when the people who had sub prime mortgages started defaulting on their loans. So the lenders stuck with the game plan and repossessed these houses and then put them back on the market. However, because so many houses were going back on the market, the prices went down. As you remember, being able to resell these houses was the investors safety net. So when that safety net dissolved, the whole housing market crumbled. Yes, of course, the government has institutions in place to protect consumers, Federal Trade Commission, or FTC, and investors, Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC, but these institutions did not diligently oversee big banks and other lenders during this time. Once the housing bubble did pop, the economy went into a tailspin. For many Americans that suffered during the collapse in the years that followed, the whole mass felt extremely preventable. And yet they suffered at the hand of an inattentive government that left an extremely fragile and consequential system unchecked. What made people's frustration and anger worse was that the government passed the troubled assets relief program or tarp. Most commonly known as the bank bailout. This legislation gave out $700 billion in loans to prop up banks from utter collapse. It is indisputable that the crashing U.S. economy would have been even further devastated if huge financial institutions went under. But try telling that to a family who lost everything at the hands of an irresponsible bank and is now watching that bank get financial aid from the government. It's a hard pill to swallow for sure. There were so many people who got screwed over by the 2008 crisis. Families who were encouraged to take out mortgages that they couldn't afford lost their homes. When these families stopped paying their mortgages, investors lost money in their mortgage backed security investments, it was a really, really terrible time. In fact, this whole mess was actually what motivated me to become a financial journalist and financial expert. I wanted to help the people that big banks and maybe even the government weren't looking out for. And most importantly, I wanted to help people protect themselves from anything like this ever happening again. It's important to remember that there are three types of bankers involved in the 2008 crisis. There were bankers who thought the housing bubble wasn't a bubble at all. That mortgage backed securities actually were one of the safest investments you could make. These bankers did have contingency plans for their investors. Those contingency plans didn't pan out because they were predicated on the belief that there wasn't a housing bubble. But these people were genuine in their belief that they were acting in their clients best interests. There were also bankers who simply looked the other way. Who decided that the money was just too good to address the creeping suspicion that things were about to go terribly wrong. Then yes, there was that third group of bankers that knew they were playing with matches, but didn't hesitate to pour gasoline because they didn't believe they would be the ones to catch fire. For today's tip you can take straight to the bank. You shouldn't hold yourself responsible for catching complex issues in the U.S. financial system. That's the job of the government, and since 2008, there has been more regulation to protect consumers. But one thing you can do to protect yourself is keep your guard up when you think an industry is overvalued. Crypto, for example, is a potential bubble in the making. And that has less government safeguards in place than the housing market. My recommendation don't put more than 1%.

Pittsburgh Houseplant Merchant Blossoms During Pandemic
"Now. This is a really cool story today. Two weeks ago we focused this episode this segment around a guy known as plant influence sir. The plant influence up toronto. And naturally we try to space topics out of bit When i was looking at all the notes for upcoming throwback thursday segments. I saw that this one was about plants i was like. Oh that's cool but let's let's push the plants back just so we're not like all plants all the time. But when i listened to the interview with abby some parts of which you'll hear in a moment. I realized she had a really good story that i just didn't want to wait for you to here. So this is the month plants. Apparently and after years of being part time abby opened her shop in january twenty twenty she opened a retail shop in pittsburgh and naturally was quite worried. Because you may recall. January twenty twenty was the last normal month of life for most of us especially anyone who is a public facing kind of business like a new retail shop but in her case she really ended up turning things around so she's got a great update along with some helpful lessons. You always hear this thing about you. Know find your niche and chief and mentioned sat in her by. She's like yeah. You always hear this thing but it's so important in a crowded space and she actually was able to find a good one so it's always good to look and say okay. Not just find your niche. But how does one do that. What are specific examples of people that have done that because that will perhaps allow somebody else to think. Okay what is what is my thing. Not just my broad area. But what is my specific plant expertise. Am i going to be the plant. Influence her going to be abby from pittsburgh or am i going to be myself. You know the best answer is probably to be yourself. But how can you make that marketable anyway enough about me. I learned a lot from abbey's interview. So let's hear some highlights from her. And i'll be back at the end to wrap it up. My name. is abby calcio knee from pittsburgh pennsylvania and i own jericho plant co which was previously featured in episode eighty three. I started back in twenty eighteen. I was working a full time corporate job in the supply chain in finance world and just wanted to do something in my free time on my own with something that i love which was plants. So i started in online houseplant shop. You can hear more about in that previous episode. And i did that for about a year and then in two thousand nineteen. Whenever we recorded that last episode i was just branching out into doing local pop up shops around town and finally getting my hands. what in selling in person instead of just online and having my husband come and help me because i needed extra help because they were doing so well Yeah it was. Just you know. A pretty stereotypical side-hustle just kind of finding time wherever you can find it so once. The lockdown happened in pennsylvania It was also very uncertain. And we no one really knew what to do however my space and the warehouse i open in pennsylvania technically allowed to stay open. Because i'm an ecommerce company. So i was actually set up pretty well for covid and the lockdown was already set up to ship customers their orders. And that's exactly what i did so honestly i don't know if i would have grown as much as i had twenty twenty. My first technical big year in business had it not been for people really wanting to have plants in their home so that they were all stuck at home and finding my business especially here locally. I was shocked at the amount of people who are willing to pay for shipping. And i was sending it to miles away because they could leave their homes. So i all my inventory was already on the website. I've still have that same shop. Affi- store that i had for the last two years so i was really set up for success. Actually which was incredible and then just sort of went with the flow for the rest of the year. Like i'm sure every other business owner has has done and i continued pop up shops where possible and doing sidewalk shops. So that was also a great way for me to advertise and shop. Affi- put in place a curbside pickup option into their interface. So from may onwards. That's how i've made most of my money as people buying online and picking up on my warehouse here in pittsburgh and i still ship across the country and that's still a great avenue for for revenue for me. I was fortunate enough to hit one hundred k. And revenue by november of twenty twenty which. I didn't expect to happen at all. I was very happy with that. It was sort of a struggle of mine. What's i kind of got to see. How the hub. Year risk going in terms of hitting six figures in nine months in a business essentially started the pandemic i. I'm pretty happy with the growth. That i've had and continue to see going into twenty twenty one one of the biggest challenges that actually any house plant or plants seller in general husband. Basing is a plant shortage across the entire country This is both in seeds and outdoor plants. I think demand is skyrocketed this year. Which i've obviously benefited from. However that's led to incredible shortages at the growers in florida and on top of that they are also dealing with the repercussions from fad hurricanes in the past five or ten years because the plant supply chain. It takes so long if you go to a store and buy a five foot tall tree just think of how many years it took for that plant ticket that large and if a thrower gets its inventory wiped out or damage that can be years of sales that are taken away from them. So my advice to you in. If you're looking to get into any sort of plant business would be to find your niche differentiate. Yourself and i know that is sometimes just something you hear about and you know marketing class or whatever but in a saturated market like online plant. Sales are or you know. Even locally you're competing with other plants stores florists and garden centers and lowe's and home depot You really have to differentiate yourself so. I focused my entire websites on helping beginners. Find their plants. Just sort of like a questionnaire like form type of thing you can go through my website and then everything is kept nice and simple on the product pages to really just get people started with house plants one of the biggest surprises and benefits. I am getting out of starting my own business is so i do the retail side and the wholesale side and retail to make people happy every single day by giving them plants which is so much fun and talking to everybody is so much fun but what i didn't know i would enjoy so much is talking to my wholesale clients and getting to know other people who are running businesses. Because they're in it with me. They no one else knows unless they're nba arena there few fighting the same fight. You are like the struggles. Of how am i gonna pay rent this month. All right my heating bill was really high. What can i do to reduce that. And and how. Am i going to get inventory and a consistent schedule talking about those problems and helping other business owners and learning from other business owners spend such a wonderful benefit of. It's sort of like your own little. Nba i feel like without having to pay all the money for an mba.

He's managed this all throughout the pandemic of course so he's got some good lessons about time management etc. Now we. I heard from matt nearly two years ago in the original story Let's now hear directly from him. And i'll come back at the end.

We are located in indianapolis indiana on the north side of town. My side hustle from seven. Twenty seven was kevin's lockouts instill as epa clubhouse side. Hustle is a resale sports in store. So i essentially. I had goodwill's stores scrap sales markets and then essentially resell gently used sports fan gear. And it's pretty much anything ranging from palace pros From both ear to cycling ear to winter jackets could be anything from maki North face to to the old nineteen ninety a starter jacket. Everybody has the chicago bulls one that we all grew up more so i always try to find the brand. The brand names let everyone tries to buy but off discount and then obviously compared to larger with nike and medicine and things like that. So essentially i just i go to stores deal mainly for stores buy low sell high and try to offer big products to people and it seems to save to be working where people are always gonna be wearing that either to a game and obviously you really go into games right out. During a pandemic people like wearing that stuff going on their favorite team. I started this back in two thousand seventeen of between teaching jobs. I left my previous school for a new teaching opportunity. But i was also unemployed needed cash so i kinda just sold things on the side that i wasn't using it like an old jersey so i sold an old chicago cubs jersey for seventy bucks tonight. Said well you know. Maybe maybe something to this. So i'm going to sell an i. I probably had thirty forty jerseys. I want i sold them. Georgia this cycle a mortgage. And i was like okay. Well they sold pretty quick. You know maybe maybe this is something. I can actually take off and run with and actually create business but you know between north korea and mainly will be clothes. I've been able to manage to make profit enough where i can officially retired from teaching. And make this slimane hustle. I before i left. I needed to see the numbers on my end of a meghan. You know five six thousand a month okay. You know sales growth sales. So i knew that i was it. Was it was a good enough jump to to try to make this full-time gig. And i'm lucky to last year's at it has even with my biggest challenge right now is that now. It's time time time though is going to be a challenge. I think i think a lot of people will tell you that My my i love working at night. And i'm kind of like a night out precise so i'll let you everything done late at night. Then as morning hits you know it's hard to get up at seven eight o'clock and try to figure out you know. Hey i need to get all this stuff done before.

I wanted to really make make that my project per se of like you know what it's time to get up. It's time to be productive. It's time to get to the stores. The fun part about all this is that you can go on thrift and you can go and find all the stuff. The hard part is get it all up getting listed getting measured and then getting shipped out with someone. That's that's always the nasa art so just trying to balance both has been tough but again realizing that this is my full time job like there is no teaching job anymore. They're in snow. Kindergarteners coming in for p. Like just to be completely focused on everything.

We couldn't keep it in stock and In two thousand seventeen. I decided to leave my full time job. To focus on the business. We also launched matching outfits for men women and kids around that time which has done incredibly wellness. Actually the the majority of our business at this point last time we were on the show at believe we were doing around two hundred fifty thousand dollars. In sales we are continuing to grow our direct to consumer market. We also partner with different wholesale accounts retailers but our main focus is definitely d to see sense. Our episode with you guys. We actually were on shark tank season. Eleven about a year ago and we've almost doubled our sales Since being on the podcast with you guys so just really focusing on growing the business and Scaling dot fully but also As quickly slow. One chip i have seen since the beginning of working apparel industry. Over fifteen years ago is a lot of people make the mistake when they want to start an apparel business specifically. They tend to copy what they see as popular. Maybe they change it slightly but they see growth in an area and so a can of knockoff. A popular design and that almost never works out successfully might gain some traction. But you're not gonna gain a really dedicated customer. I don't believe in create a brand story that you need to to be successful in an industry like ours where you can't patent apparel design So i think the most important thing is coming up with a design that is unique and authentic to you in a real reason of why you're creating it to fill gap in the market and then staying true to your brand and gray density not just copying. What you see is popular out there. Which is tough to do. Because know there's so much inspiration out there and there's so many credible companies that i think everyone looks around. They're like tempted to go a different direction. Just when they see something that's shiny new awesome But i think just trying to always go back to yourself said his authentic to you and your company and staying true to that is stepping. What's most important in our industry. Thank you so much not really appreciate those updates and it was great for me to be reminded of dog threads. I remember working on that episode long ago and thinking. This is the coolest thing as you heard. They were doing something like two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year when we first had them on the show and now they've doubled it Lots of other improvements as well so it just a couple of comments here. Gina was talking about how a lot of times in the fashion world people just kind of do knockoffs and they look at something. they're like. Oh that's cool and they make something a little bit like that and as you just heard from her like she's like i don't think you can create a brand story which is what you need to be successful in. An industry like the fashion industry right. So a brand story is this narrative customer loyalty that trust that people kind of give overtime or you could say a brand builds up over time. Depending on which perspective you're looking at and that is the real value in a business like doctrines which by the way. Gina pointed out to a separately. The pet industry is pretty much recession. Proof like during the pandemic animal. Adoptions have gone way up already had pets have been spending a lot more time with them so dog threads is well positioned

That just takes a little You gotta take effort and you have to develop a track record of being honest get your reputation To change from being a liar to be someone was standing in person. but for the most part I think everyone can stop lying.

I understand the guy doesn't want to have a relationship told you that they just wanted to sleep with you told you a some people have to learn things are unfortunately That's just how it goes no matter what type of advice you give them They just they. You don't understand because you're not going through it but Sometimes i think the date but the dating the dating relationship. The dating is noth- funny anymore. When kane have the basic being honest if you're gonna number and everything you know. I'm happy about it do you like what am i going to get a drama getting. You don't even excited about like. Yeah whatever. I agree with you sandwiches like i will. I don't give people the benefit of the data used to give them. I mean every now.

Because it's like people wanna have leveraging relationships now and they're willing to what it takes to get their every even if it includes line. So i mean does the fun out of dating like you used to fix it. Takes the fun of bull gender having fun and we used to bull gender live bad when the guy was being lying to women.

"I agree with you on that when when you're when you have this picture in your head of what you want things to be is very hard to shake that pitcher and get back to reality is easy to see with other people but when you're in yourself it's very difficult but I think when it comes to lying is early in their relationship then and yeah it in may depend on. What your lineup. Now i guess. Maybe there's some there's some ways you can tell like this crystal. If you're dating this guy has been like so you're just really starting to kick it good with the do and his ex girlfriend sends him A new photo or cell phone unsolicited. He didn't ask for anything she just spent into him and use you. Thank you see. And then he tells you nothing. He tries to play off of whatever i mean. Is that something. We're breaking up over or do you think that's just him trying to avoid unnecessary argument over something that he didn't initiate well. This is a rule that i know. Is that when you need someone. The first few months of that so call relationship. He is letting go of other relationships when you need him around and you may not be you know seriously. But he's in a relationship with somebody fucking so by the time you decide that you are going to be the one quote unquote for now Then he has to let go these people and most people men especially i think most people period don't like confrontation so they kinda like just eventually. They hope that a person would go away if they don't talk to them they don't call them. Don't do woman These women these xs on quote are Are in the throes of this person. Not calling and the goal so these like what's going on life and he called me when you know me. I need to do this. We need to do that to step up my game. So this is what's going on in their mind cause they actually think they do have some sort of relationship with this person so this is why they do that okay. They didn't get phone and he's trying to forget it and he's trying to just this it go away so you can see something in very well. Maybe nothing like. She may not be anything to him but So in the beginning. I i would say. Don't worry that too much because that's just the way it is. I mean i don't know why people actually think that this person was on an island until you showed up. That's illogical but most people do actually feel that way. It's it's weird crazy right now and we're all right another crisis and shake you out on fire. I mean i agree with that. A hundred percent because Like i think from gosh respect when it comes to women even when a woman breaks up with certain news. He's still her due to. He decided to go away. Because i always say that women always have a guy in their life and thinks that he's their boyfriend and so i don't think that a person should react to anything christmas it within the first month or so the relationship because people are still trying to reach out to them because it's not like it's been announced that hey i'm no longer single. I'm with someone i mean even going on facebook. No one cares So it's like people have to get the hint sometimes that you moved on. And if you don't just come out and tell them to earlier then they kind of just have to find out on their own..

"So but that has been one way of you know kind of telling you someone is lying or is trying to evade the truth. A little bit But i think really only in america do we each other in the i like that. That's part of our culture to stare each other down kind of things but in other cultures is not. That's not a part of what they do. Some some of some cultures signed a very Insulting to look someone in the eye or you. Don't look at people in the eye. I mean it has nothing to do with them. Lying just a part of the culture and so you have to be mindful of that too but but you can take that along with other tells Dealing and things like that that can give you can give away this in line. Okay mason points there and But i ask your opinion on when it comes to lying. I mean how important act contact cannot person look you i and lots of you and you not know. Oh yeah I've seen that from recent history. So i mean i know it can happen but i mean there's other other subtle things that you that you can pick up on. This pat us Every in every person's different but you really can figure out how to pretty easily pretty quickly. So you know long as you're paying attention your head in the clouds. I mean there's pretty is pretty much you know once you realize it and really and truthfully hey attention to some of the people some of your close friends that you know. Get your best interest in heart heart you know. There's some sometimes other people can catch the whole lot faster than you can. So is always important to kind of listening to them to me. I know you you know you have to defend the people you risk or whatnot but at the same time. Pay attention because when other people see patterns that you may not be able to see needs to be really paying attention now me personally. I feel like the only way person will reveal that. They're lying through. There is that they feel guilty about what they did If there's someone that actually has remorse. I think you can see it in the is it. This person is not sorry for what they're what they did. Many will look you in the eye with a coast there and sit there and tell you did not have sexual relations with that woman. Miss monica lewinsky. They won't take anything you know. So i you kinda plays a role in and that you know. They say one way to spot a liar. Pay attention to the details that they're giving out because they may give out relevant details and crystal you guys get caught up in. They give out so much detail. They can't remember what they say about the next on the story. Yeah that's that's something that's Yeah natural one of the ways of telling a liar Which is why you know. We often interrogators.

3D Printing Enables Distance Learning Materials
"My name is marcy klein. I am the owner of a company. Three ducts design and we are based in the court connecticut and this is a follow up episode to episode number seven hundred and thirty. I started Three ducks design an educational products. architecture modeling sets for kids and learning programs. That kids can use a poem or in school. I actually spent most of my adult career. As a pediatrician Working in the community and about seven years ago the creative entrepreneurial side was kind of knocking on the door and i developed an architecture system. it's actually a modular furniture system that i created originally and went through the process of trying to figure out how to start a company and how to make furniture and wound up actually opening up a workshop where i had scenery and it was never really easy But we actually in the factory. Thirty printer and a cnc router table to cut wood and my kids are. We were hanging out in the factory and developed an architecture modeling that uses cardboard. And i thought it was a little cheap business so we went to some farmers markets and actually a light bulb went off in my head because people were buying their product. And they had actually. Anthony muscled more product than i had in three years. So i was like okay. This is an educational building sat for kids. I'm a pediatrician. China make furniture and my kids. Company just like overtook my company. In three months the last feature honest show uber pretty early on in the process and i knew our product was amazing and i knew it was really educational but i wasn't really sure nor were my kids weather. This really have case in a market in its way industry or in education so we really built out a lot. More value to the product itself by creating learning programs so apparent at home for example can get on our website and they buy any one little tiny thing they have access to all of our lessons and they can print out a fun little tiny house challenge for their six year olds and the little kid can learn a basic level. Basic geometric shapes. They can on their angles. They can learn a little bit about area. Anthony spatial concepts. So that's just like one lesson at a like have tens of lessons now and we also have video content. Think the learning curve of knowing who your market is or for me at least knowing market is knowing how to speak their lingo A major learning herb. You know i mean granted. I'm a pediatrician. So i know like children's development amount of teacher so i don't know teacher talk and i'm competing with people like lego in scholastic you know and we're just like a little company so we really had a now the booth and the display and our our story And just as cloven hit. Like i really feel like we just totally nailed it like you know people would just buying right down in air at the expo site now. Getting their principles like running over with their principal. You have to see this product and we literally in north carolina at an expo heading over to south by southwest. Big education competence. And it's like. I was in the car. And like cancelling it so my products web to texas and i'm home So we really backpedalled in all of our lesson plans and curriculum had her be essentially need written for remote learning so and what schools are now discovering now that we have the product the contents. That's remote friendly is that kids especially little kids are incredibly challenging to teach remotely because they're not engaged. Our product is engaging to them so the content. We created all summer and we actually be packaged our products. So that rather than selling a classroom kit where it's like a free for all for every canned like a big box of lego. We actually individually packaged each kit into a bath path. So every student can get their own bath pack. They can be sitting at their own table. They have their own materials. So it's actually been a really good experience for us even though it was like a huge hurdle to overcome in. Psychologically when you know you're like there and then all of a sudden you're not you're starting all over again figuring out how messaging online such a tactile digital products helmet the message so we really had to like me. Create our marketing efforts need create our content and create our packaging so like the whole entire company. basically had to be like packaged. So yes was busy for us

Brittany and jack shocked us whenever they posted similar announcements on their instagram. Saying they will not be returning for another season vanderpump roles they also said they are excited to take this time to focus on their growing family.

"I'm always looking at the threads. I'm looking at what's trending and specifically see this on lincoln more and more people trying to translate their personal brand to other social media platforms and even in real life. You know and i always be people up speaking. They take pictures of themselves on and they showed the social proof as it. Were this important weeks. Important for visibility is what so for people to see if this is part of what you do is part of your brand in terms of having social proof and in terms of your credibility as well So should everybody look at speaking as one of those ways to amplify or embodied their personal brands. Well i think he. I think speaking is one of the. I don't just think this is actually been supported by research and and and actually some very big name people. Yeah who who would attribute public speaking to the differentiator for their success. Meaning turn the tide for them in their success was when they not just started speaking but when they actually invested in becoming more than. I'm glad you said that because in my experience and i'm a former corporate media trainer so helping c. level executives get ready for that big platform or even going. Cnbc goering the bill at new york stock exchange and do the junket but at more and more i'm seeing more i would say regular professionals now. Just see sweet trying out speaking. Because they know they've seen it. They seem their friends taking pictures of themselves and putting it only din or instagram. And they're like me to go before you know it there jumping on stage at the first opportunity. What advice do you have for them. Because it sounds like you need to get ready. Well is interesting that you say that. I actually wrote a book on amazon e book right now but it's it's the eight things you need to know before you step onto the platform the eighth things you need to. It's all about what you need to prepare. It's not just about gain on a platform and speaking. I think the biggest mistake that i see a lot of people who now began to speak or put speaking as part of their business is that they think that speaking is just talking and giving information right when it's not my tagline is don't speak to inform speak to transform yes and how you shift so it's not about you the speaker it's about. What is your audience going to take away. Yes yes you know what a person we both know because we came through the cap institute valorie burton has been on the show before we talked about this and some of those terms. When you start to take the emphasis off of you and understand that you're there to serve. How does that shift things for you. On the platform huge huge. I mean you're a person who struggles with any kind of nervousness or exiled you know there's there's always going to be a little hint of what i call the tinguely's like you're just okay. You want to do a good job but it shifts your whole energy in your focus when you begin to shift it from. It's not about what i have to give although you want to give value. But how can i help. Make a difference. In the lives of the people that i'm communicated to and so when you do that you're you're focusing the shift to not just give a perfect say not being perfection but connection moving a perfect presentation. But how can you intentionally connect with your audience in meaningful personal ways and when you do that you begin to your confidence level changes your whole way of preparing changes but also you realize you know what if i if you come face to face and some of the things that maybe that you need to hone or to them and developed some skills because when you see that navy you've lost your audience or your confusing your audience than you realize okay. I need to change my messaging. So that i'm concise and clear but also that it's done in such a way that my audience feels like i'm talking to them or i'm speaking. Yes you know. That's a wonderful point. Some people get very very nervous because they think of this year numbers. That may be sitting before them. But when you think about the fact that you really speaking to one person exactly instead of these whole well they may fit a profile. That's for sure but you have to have that person in mind. And when it goes from one to one communication or goes from speaking to many to one to one communication. How does that shift things for speaker. That is huge. I'm so glad you mentioned that l. Michelle because we have this saying that. I picked up from one of my mentors. Craig valentine it and it's this it's when you onstage or when you're on a platform you're speaking to an audience even like this on a pod. Well not so much the looking but this is when you have an audience trying to you want to focus and you speak as if you're speaking to one but you look to all so you're in front of a visible audience. You wanna look to all you wanna make sure everyone feels included. That involves your is in your body language but you speak to win so so you have to change your language in order for them to feel like you're speaking to you. That's an entire shift it and i. I work a lot with corporate folks and folks in business and they tend to think that speaking is presenting a powerpoint. And that's one form of it right but the kind of speaking that we're talking about really is about delivering a message that will like you say transform. What's the difference will the difference. Is this a people. Walk away so people people can might sit to listen to you and feel good in the moment because of what you're presenting or what you're communicating. But when they walk away what difference does it make in their life and do they remember that message weeks months down the road when they run into a situation. That maybe you've spoken about. Let us do. Are they bringing something forward. That's going to help solve a problem for them. Shift a mindset out the move forward and that's what you want as a speaker you it's a privilege for bowl to be in front of you and so you want to honor that by saying i wanna do i wanna give them value so that it can help them move from where they are. Maybe even one step closer to where they want to be. How you do that is is in the way that you communicate. that's huge. We talked about this. I do a whole executive presence platform around rock the platform while it does not center on. This is how you should speak. It does talk about how you prepare before you go into the room to understand that the room is the only thing you're speaking to bring value is what you just said. So that after it's over you can't leave the room because the people wanna talk to you not.

Minimalist Backpacks With a Cause
"My name is Kelly from Denver Colorado and I'm the CO owner of adventurous backpack company along with my wife Matilda. Adventurous was previously featured on episode five, twenty, two of side-hustle school back in two, thousand and eighteen. Adventurous backpack though we designed minimalist backpacks with a cause for every backpack sold, we provide twenty-five meals to families in need across the US since adventurous backpack. Oh. was featured on the show back in two thousand, eighteen Matilda and I have both transitioned to running the business full time. So now we're we're both a full employees and owners of adventurist before ice wished I was actually working as a real estate agent but also. Directly before I was working as a lift driver and Matilda was a nanny. We've been fortunate enough to get our backpacks into urban outfitters we've been accepted by feeding America into their enterprise. Society. We've expanded our website adventurous two at Cox Dot Com, and we've been forced a enough to have our backpacks featured in outside magazine Forbes Travel Channel Woman's Day pop sugar and more. I would say that as many businesses are experiencing the you know. Setbacks from covid nineteen right now, that's obviously a big factor in a lot of our decisions and options moving forward since a lot of our retail sales to stores, universities and events have slowed way down. Since the pandemic we've chosen to focus on e commerce and direct to consumer sales, which is really the only avenue we have completely in our control and so we've worked a lot on making. Our website adventurous backpacks dot com as a user friendly as possible, and it's actually ended up being kind of a blessing in disguise because we're now learning how to increase their sales online on our website. Since that's the only thing we're able to do you wish will be even better once all the craziness ends and we're able to continue supplying retail stores in universities with that accident as well. There there are always. Downsides to owning a business with all the freedom that it allows like being able to create your own schedule, go out and hikes and take photos and do something different every day there's also the pressure to to make money because it's a business and if you don't sell your product and you're not able to make money than. Going to be able to grow or continue, and so there's there's definitely a fair amount of stress. You know you try to find ways to cope with the stress but. It definitely can be their state. You have like a slow week of selling backpacks. We can be like, oh no what's what's happening is the you know you can have a tendency to almost overreact, but the truth is as long as you don't panic and you kind of just put in the the work necessary. Even if things are slow at the beginning or even if something goes wrong, there's always a way to overcome that and continue doing what you're doing to make to make it would. Thanks so much Kelly thanks as well to Matilda. The adventurous backpacks team. Now, listeners I always want to encourage you do the thing that is available to you. Win. An obstacle presents itself. Sometimes you can choose to attack it head on or you can say, okay, this is a pretty big obstacle such as cove. Nineteen. And this is affecting my main strategy or it's affecting a lot of what I could do. Let's say a lot of things are outside my control. So what can I do instead? And for the backpack team like focusing on retail stores wasn't a great strategy for twenty twenty they began with with trying to build more retail wholesale relationships, etc. But then obviously, it became quite apparent that that wasn't going to work so well for most of this year. So they changed it up and began paying more attention to their ECOMMERCE model. Now in the future retail may become more important again but the time and attention that they have focused on ecommerce only help them then. So do the thing that is available to you. That's my encouragement to you into myself as well. I. Think there's always a good thing to think about when you're stuck when you encounter obstacles, what can I do now? So much is out of our control what can I do? That is within my control.
Organization Expert Declutters 150+ Homes
"My name is Lisa Hobie I live in Seattle. Washington and I was featured on episode three hundred fifty. Three. Yoga teacher cleans up and I'm also in the one hundred side Hustles Book My side. Hustle is as a home organizer I like to say. My superpower is my ability to create beautiful functional, highly personalized spaces for my clients. I got the idea for my hustle kind of like a bolt from the blue during an interview with Chris. Gilo I was at a live taping for Gretchen. Rubin Liz Crafts podcast happier. And of course I was sitting right in the front row because I'm a superfan. And Gretchen interviewed Chris About his book born for this how to find the work you were meant to do. And I had this epiphany. I love decluttering organizing and making things beautiful. It's what I do to play. I lose track of time when I do it. Because I'm so focused, I'm like a dog with a bone plus I twenty five years teaching experience. So at that moment, it dawned on me. People actually pay me for. This skill was featured on the show in December two, thousand seventeen, and since that time. A side Hustle of home, organizing became my full time job. And my full time job of Yoga, teacher Yoga decreased down to a little side. Hustle so in that time I am I worked in a hundred and forty nine homes for a total of one, thousand, eight, hundred and seventy five billable hours. This is pretty much a three year span. and delivered three hundred and fifty two carloads of my clients donations to places like the refugee women's Alliance, where I volunteer, and to the local food banks to goodwill as well as delivering specialized recycling, so things were going great. I was working five days a week. In clients homes, I was booked out weeks in advance with a wait list. And I love my work and then the pandemic hits. And everything changed and I. AM recording this on Day. Ninety of Seattle stay at home order so I'm right in the middle of a lot of uncertainty and change. I would characterize these past three months at home as a time of service and experimentation right away when the pandemic head I knew I wanted to serve my clients because this. Is US super stressful time for everybody so right away. I started teaching Yoga every morning on zoom, and so I went from my group twice a month to teaching seven classes a week. I knew I wanted to serve my organizing clients. And I have been working with clients virtually op zoom throughout the stay at home time. I wrote an e book as a thank you for joining my mail list I rewrote my Introduction ladders. I added online scheduling option I gave a few talks on zoom for a couple of different companies. I wrote and sent out three newsletters to my mailing list as constant contact. So all of this. All of it felt like a pretty steep learning curve actually. Feis I get to someone who's thinking about becoming a home organizer. This is a really good time to do a lot of reading I would read books on organising home design housekeeping habit change. Time Management Paper Management, digital management I actually pretty frequently. Get requests for informational interviews so I have a pdf of my favorite resources. I'm happy to yet email it to anyone who's interested. You can just reach out. I guess the last thing I would say is in this time of. Such huge transition. Happen All I can do is keep offering excellent service to my clients between home, organizing and teaching Yoga and getting donations to people need them and keeping stuff out of the landfill. I feel like I'm living in integrity with my values, and that I'm being of service to people in ways that are easy and enjoyable for me and beneficial for them, so we'll just take breath time.
Bestselling Author Publishes Novels, Online Courses, and More
"Hi I'm Jessica, Birdie, and I'm full time novelist living near Portland. Oregon I was featured on episode three three of the podcast and a full time novelist. My side hassle is a company called writing mastery, which is dedicated to teaching other writers how to elevate their writing and the writing careers through online courses, webinars, youtube videos and blog posts got started because I was doing a lot of speaking engagements as As higher to speak to writers at writing conferences and different writing events, and I found myself travelling a lot, and so I actually discovered a online learning platform called you to me, and I decided as a test to transform one of my workshops, that I would do live and transform it into online course just as a test and I. put it up on you to me and it ended up. Being very successful you, too I think we made a thousand dollars first day or something and we were we meaning me and my husband, who is my producer for the courses We are so excited we were like what else can you talk about And from there I started to brainstorm a bunch of different topics of things that I felt like I was good at or that writers often asked me about so meaning they thought I was good at it so I came up with A. A bunch of topics and I just started to go through them and and creek courses based on them so the second one. We launched a few months later. also did really well. That was a course all about productivity hacks for writers, and we've just been producing courses ever since everybody your after I was on the podcast I released my very first nonfiction book, which is a book all about how to plot a novel how to write a novel and it's called Save. The cat writes novel. It's based on a very popular screenwriting method called. Save the cat and I have adapted it for writing novels I looked back when I was on the podcast four. We had thirty seven hundred students on you to me and today we have thirty thousand students on you to me. Where I first launched my courses, so that's just crazy to me, but then I think the most exciting thing. Thing, that's happened is is was in January. Which is My husband and I launched our very first online learning platform that is all hours and it. It's called the writing mastery academy. It is a subscription site where you pay twelve dollars a month, and you get access to all of my courses unlimited access, so you don't have to decide which one you wanNA. Take our. You can dabble in them. You can take them in any order. Take them as many times as you want I think when people when people want to create online courses, they struggle with either two different kinds of things. They struggle with either what's called experts, syndrome or imposter, syndrome and experts. Syndrome is when you are so knowledgeable about something that you don't. You can't break it down or you can't figure out you. You can't wrap your head around the fact that other people don't just naturally know how to do this, so you're just so good at it that you don't understand that it actually is a skill that many people don't have that. Many people need to learn, and then on the other hand is this. This. This impostor syndrome, which is where I think people say why can't create that? Course because I'm not the best in the field like I'm not the best at whatever I do so why would people turn to me to learn that? So they feel sort of like an impostor by by making a course, and and saying I can teach this. They'd feel like a little bit of an the impostor syndrome, and I think I have I have some advice on both of those. I think for one. For the impostor syndrome, I think the key thing note is that you do not have to be the best at something in order to teach it. You just have to have some sort of skill that other people don't have, and even if that means, you're not the best in your field, it means that you have something to offer people who want to learn about that field in terms of experts syndromes. That was a little bit harder to overcome, but I think the whole idea behind creating courses is being able to break down. skills and knowledge into these bite-size learning. Nuggets or these fights is markers on a journey, so I structure all of my courses as here's a pain, point that you need to overcome like conquering writer's block, and then I look at it in. How can I break that down into bite sized skills, or bite-size sidesteps so I, think a lot of people that they make when they create a new course. is they sort of trying to tackle it all at once or they or they sort of topical, a little bit of this skill, and then a little bit of the skill, and it doesn't really have a clear learning path so I guess that's my my best advice for anyone who's trying to break into the world of online learning.
The Craigslist Photographer Returns With a Report
"Hustle is over ACIS photography, and I was featured in a really early episode episode number nine. The way started with the side, hustles I always a visual person and I've always enjoyed the arts, and in doing the tiger free, since I was really young and over the years. When you're young, you're still learning photography and you start off in the days, and you don't have a job to pay the bill you basically just. kind of stopped, but then what happened with this particular side Hustle in college, a gained the reputation, being known as the guy with the camera, and in my senior year I got asked by a friend to photograph for wedding, and so I said yes. At that time. I didn't really know it didn't even start doing any waiting at that point, but I knew I was excited to try. and. When I kinda sat down, and excitement stopped the realization of all. My Gosh I'm a photograph. My friend's wedding and I've never done this before, so instead of calling my friends saying. Hey, I don't think I can do it. I decided to go with it and I made a post on craigslist, saying hey, I am starting autocracy and any writing the groom's that are looking for Harper, an inexpensive dog of her, and suppose it up on craigslist, and a couple of days later got a reply and bride and groom hired me really quickly off craigslist I still have the day job and I'm still loving. This stay job up to this point just celebrated my twelfth year employment with my current employer so I'm really happy with that, so I I am still a civil engineer and still loving it to this day sense being featured on the show, a lot of things said change in. With the weddings I've slightly increase my prices from the thirty five hundred one. I did the episode to just about a little bit over four thousand at this point, and that was primarily because I started getting a little bit more business, but then I also wanted to concentrate on other parts of the business, and so I thought okay. Let me raise my prices. Maybe they'll slow it down. It did slow it down to a point where I could start. Investing more time in other parts of the business, and so now I am dependent on what hat I'm wearing. I'm either still a wedding photographer, and that's usually primary marks through September, and then throughout the year I can either be doing commissions for landscape, and now with the newest thing with architecture. I'm slowly getting into trying to work with architects and engineers on photographing. Photographing their projects for anyone wanting to start their business, the most important aspect is know how to use camera because the thing is as photographers were basically trying to problem-solver, trying to capture an image given the conditions whether it's like conditions, weather and you are being paid to photograph that given whatever it is. I mean sometimes. It is going to be your call. Hey I cannot get that shot for you today because of a B and C and if you don't know to use your camera, you can't tell your client confidently that you can't make that happen. And you know lastly the best thing that anyone can ever do as the target for is just go out photograph every day. you know practice that skill set because there's always a lot of new technology and all the techniques. There was no one way to get an image. There's multiple routes to do it so always trying to keep fresh with your skill set, and understanding how things go and evolving I think that helps you start off in that business. Well, there are a lot of photographers out there a lot of them who are struggling trying to get their first clients and such. If. That's you if you know somebody, you want to go back and listen to Oliver's original story. If you missed it. Basically, he offered to do his first gigs to strangers on craigslist for a very low amount of money
Returning to the Workplace AFTER Quitting Your Job
"I'm curious similar Graca. I live in New York City. I was featured on episode twenty one and my side. How Saul is Rosa Gold? Which is a multichannel ECOMMERCE BUSINESS? That sells personalised and monogrammed accessories and the biggest item. That we sold were monogrammed. Lincoln scarves the way that I started this business. It was really organic. I was working as a television producer in a role that wasn't as creative as I had hoped it would be so I think in my spare time. I felt like in creative so I started to make things with my hands and my my natural habitat in new. Creativity is was always sewing making apparel and clothing and accessories. That's what I had always done when I was a kid for fun so I started doing that again. I just needed to inject some more creativity into my life and I created this monogram scarf for myself and I wore it and all my friends were asking for one so I was like maybe this is something that people want and at the time at sea was kind of on the newer side and it was only for handmade items so I put this one style of scarf on se. This was my first foray into commerce and it sold like I was selling stop. I wasn't telling Hind but people were buying these monogram scarves for me so it clued me into the fact. I L like people want this and it's something that you know. They're willing to pay money for and I was getting good reviews. Those like great. They like it and kind of expanded from there in a way that I never intended to start a business. I did it for creativity. I did it as a hobby Once I put everything on ads e e commerce became very really fascinating to me. How it works how you can get ideas from customers how you can try new things with like a very low fall on your face rate like you can try something out. It doesn't work. You can change direction and it's not that big of a deal so yeah it was berry not normal. In the sense I started with the thought of Business. I just wanted to be creative again. And then from vast from the business and what I realized in that process was I really enjoyed thinking about other types of businesses how to make them grow and while that happened the passion for my business or the joy that I was that I used to get for my business. I it just became really Adult doubt a little bit. I was working a lot by myself. I felt a little bit isolated so kind of all in that timeframe I realized that I really now am fascinated by ECOMMERCE and every day. There's something new. There's a new way to get stuff that you need deliver greater house and bought on the Internet so I sort of decided that using all of what I learned from starting my own business and running it for a few years and then now helping other commerce business owners. I wanted to take all of that and land myself a role so go back to her. Which is the emphasis of what many people start out when they start when they start side hassle to but I decided I want to wanted to go back into the workplace at a company. I was really excited about working out with people that was really excited. Were with and to work on an ECOMMERCE Seymour. I felt like I was part of something in. We were really growing it. An exciting things were happening there. So that's what I did. I now work at a health and wellness. Start Up New York City. I love it. It was for me the best decision. I get to spend my days with the smartest people out there. I'm challenged every day. I get to work on a team again and that is really fulfilling and rewarding to me to work collectively with other people to accomplish something so my side. Hustle. Rosa Gold is still operating. One of the challenges was when I was going to go back to work a nine to five. I knew I did not want to just shut down my side hustle. It has brought so much into my life that that would be a disservice to me for many reasons. I had made friends through it There are so many reasons why it was so great for me to keep that side-hustle running the biggest challenge right now is figuring out how to transition business And continually come up with new ways to allow it to rise on removing me from a little bit like the day to day operations. I still am involved but I just needed to not be the line running day-to-day thank you so much. I really appreciate those updates. I know our listeners. Do as well. I always like hearing from people who find different approaches or creative approaches who are pursuing kind of hybrid model. We have a lot of listeners out there. Who are you know aside hustling while? They're working their day job than they go all in or maybe they go half time. Maybe they're focusing on parenting for awhile. But then they're also trying to build an income source. Maybe eventually go back to the workplace. You know everybody's navigating these things differently like we're all on a journey right so I think the key point is you have to find what works for you like you've got to find the thing that works for you at this time at this season in your life recognize that it might not be the same thing that other people are doing recognize that it might not be the same thing you did last year. It might not be what you ended up doing a year from now. And just having that flexibility adaptability really is a key to success or at least a key to wellness. People often feel pressured to do things a certain way. And one of my favorite things with this podcast. Twelve hundred episodes and counting Is showing that there are a lot of ways? You don't have to live your life the way others expect which is kind of my life. Mantra what I've been teaching in different ways for ten years more than ten years now at this point so it's just fun to highlight different examples. Thanks again to Kirsten for bringing a new one
Designer Scales Personalized Wedding Products to $1M+
"My name is kristen. Berry Mr Morris I live in New York City my business side hustle is Miss Design Berry and I was on episode one seven eight. Miss Design Berry is an ECOMMERCE shop. We specialize in custom illustration pieces for weddings and other big events. I graduated and moved to New York in two thousand eleven and I was working in advertising and even though I was making good money I still needed extra money and I had gone to school for design and illustration so I just started an se shop. Dan started doing it on the side after work and slowly slowly grew it and then in two thousand fifteen. When I ended up leaving my fulltime job to run missed designed very fulltime. Since I was last on the show I ended up working with a business coach for about eighteen months and he helped me actually really changed our pricing model in the wing. Interact with our clients. One of my goals was to move. All of our business off of betsy took us about one year and we did end up doing that. We sell to a smaller group of clientele now with a much higher average order value. So as of Tony. Nineteen or revenue was still about one million and so this year will probably grow about twenty percent the on that we are launching a second brand children's brand later this spring which makes kind of sense. It's the logical next step because the next thing for our clients get married and they start their own families. You'll be doing lots of stuff for sort of a first child in new families and then the last update is that I have started doing some consulting work as well or other small businesses. Who are looking to move from a primarily ESI focused business to their own website as well so I have launched my own website and we'll be launching an online course for that later this year. If you are a small creative business at a really wonderful things to start you're able to get sort of built in traffic. You can test out products and really see what the market wants. And what's maybe not so popular and you're able to get a lot of feedback from clients and really kind of figure out where you're putting years and what you ultimately want to be selling for us. We reached a certain point where there was a lot of competition who were fiercely just ripping us off We were paying an insane amount in fees yearly for SC and was Changing a lot of their their logistics in the way that they ran thing so what had worked for us for several years in terms of advertising in that sort of stuff had really started to become a lot more expensive and we read a point where we kind of knew what are we knew. target Intel was and. We felt like we were ready to move off the platform. And just have a bit more freedom. I think for anyone who's looking to sell art or illustration design some kind of something under that umbrella. Online it really is helpful today to have a very specialized niche because the more specific you can be in what you're selling and who you're targeting. There's a lot out there. There's a Lotta competition and if you're trying to blanket and you know sell to everyone salter no one and for us we've realized we've gotten more and more and more specialized as the years go on and that's only helped us grow which sometimes it can seem like that doesn't make sense that it really does one really special component that we've kind of added into our business model is we have partnered with a dog. Charity called the Beagle Freedom Project and a portion of all of our sales now. Goes directly them. it's something. I'm really passionate about dogs and rescue organizations. And so that's been like a goal for me ever since I started my business. So I'm really happy. Now that We're able to really give back to them through our business and all the clients that raval to service. Thank you kristen very much. Appreciate those updates and advice. Let's talk about for a moment before I wrap it up. You know it's it's not just about the listing and sales fees and thinking about this because I often mentioned how sometimes people who sell on the end up getting frustrated and going on to do their own thing. You know setting up their own websites. They're not dependent on that platform which is a good thing to do. But I think it's not just. The listing entails piece. It's also about this advertising arms race to where you know to be successful especially in a competitive market. You don't just pay the basic commission. You almost have to pay these increasing advertising costs and we see this with facebook as well. You know businesses that are built on facebook. Ads sometimes ended up in an industry which is super competitive. You'd have to keep spending and spending and spending and so fortunately Christian has found a way to essentially exit the arms race. So good for
TBT: Bridesmaid-for-Hire Keeps Walking Down the Aisle
"My name is Jan. I am currently living in New York City and I was featured on episode eighty three about my side hustle which is bridesmaid for higher. I started bridesmaid for higher. After all of my friends got married early in my twenties and I found that I was always behind the scenes at weddings and what I noticed was in a billion dollar industry. There was nobody there whose job it was to be there for the bride if they had a wedding planner. That person was often really busy. Planning the wedding setting it up dealing with bender's but no one was there to deal with people problems so I started a company where I provide professional bridesmaid services. Surprising needs they. Hire me to their personal assistant on called therapists. Social Director Peacekeeper has literally every wedding has drama. And nobody's there to deal with it. That's a lot of what my company does service both brides and made up honors and we service bride so that they can hire their own brides meat have day of coordinator or just have a wedding consultant. Be there for them on the phone to answer all their questions when they get engaged we were bridesmaids as well to help them figure out how to do their job for the first time. And finally we work with honors doing maid of Honor speechwriting and also coach them through that position because it does sometimes feel like a fulltime job. Since last on the show I decided to do an evaluation of all the packages that I offered and instead of having many different packages to serve. It's different clients. I decided to reduce it down to a core three to service to specific clients the bride and bridesmaid or the maid of honor. In addition to bad I've had over forty thousand people apply to work for me and one of the cool things I don. In addition to hiring more people I think I started with three and now I have seven is I found a way to incorporate a product to sell the people who I cannot hire so so many people reached out wanting to work and I cannot hire forty thousand but now have an online course where I can train them to start their own in the wedding industry that destruction just like mine another major project that I launched in addition to this business called finally the bride as an extension to my personal life where I just got engaged and now I'm letting people vote on my wedding decisions in my wedding planning and I'm using a business model around that also generate income off of the original brand brides the for higher the biggest challenge currently facing is that even though I have been a business owner for five years. I'm still extremely stubborn. WanNa do everything myself. You know at this point in my business. I do believe I should be having other. People helped me with certain tasks certain projects that I still have this mindset that I am the only one who can do anything and I know that. That's not true so one of the biggest accomplishments that I personally made as a business owner. This year was hiring people to do. Some projects for me is in consulting for me because I finally realized that. If you are a one person show you can't be as powerful as you possibly could be if you allow other people to enter your business and do the things that you either don't have time to do or you're not the expert and I want to continue. Optimize aimed at improving brides meat for higher. Continue to make our core products even stronger and perhaps you something that helps brides and bridesmaids the maid of honor while they're on the go and facing problems in real time so I think those are going to be some of the big future goals for the company. I think it's also really important to remember that you can enter and disruptive industry that you don't know much about and you have never had experience in never wanted to be in the wedding industry and they were thought. I would have a business in the wedding industry but I found myself going to a lot of weddings and noticing that this is a problem that wasn't solved so if you want to get into business in you're wondering what and how and why start asking people. Hey what's your problem and I know that sounds defensive and rude but the more you can get people to open up about their problems. Not like they're you know really deep emotional problems but just everyday problems like hey. My shirt keeps not untie. Gives coming on tugged or you know. I have a really big problem where it's raining in my umbrella. Always breaks the more. You accumulate problems. The more you'll figure out okay. What isn't unsolved being an industry that maybe people have tried to solve that? They haven't solved good enough. Maybe you can put your own spin on it so asking people what the problem is and then testing out maybe having a minimal viable product that you share with some people get some feedback and keep improving. You know. I always say start. Now start with a bare minimum. It's never going to be perfect but you continuously can improve and don't over think it some of the best business ideas like mine. People say to me all the time only guys thought about doing that but just never did. We'll do it well. You heard it from her. The bridesmaid for higher original the one and only although she has forty thousand other people who want to do the same thing So good for her. Congratulations yet. It's so wonderful to hear how your business has grown. And even though she's grown that business quite a lot also realized she was getting spread too thin and had too many packages too many offers essentially she had all this demand so she thought she had to serve all the people but then you kind of realized that simplifying would actually help her so she reduced it down to what was it. I think two to three packages also really liked what she said about how the problem you saw doesn't have to be in an industry. You have a background in. This is kind of interesting. It's kind of provocative in some ways because at least contrary them and even for me I would say often. I encourage people to start with that. Like start with your own industry. Start with your profession. Start WITH YOU. Know what you're familiar with But it's not the only way as she has demonstrated or maybe I guess you could say it was an industry. She was familiar with from having been a bridesmaid so experiencing it from that perspective but she never wanted to be in the wedding industry. She was just going to all these weddings and noticed. This was a problem that wasn't solved so as she said. You don't have to find deep emotional problem. You can just find everyday problem. And there's a lot of money in solving everyday problems a lot of money a lot of demand a lot of neat as I think you can tell from her story again. I would encourage you to listen to the original episode. Which was a? Let me see once again. I think it was episode. Eighty-three you can just go to school. Dot Com slash eight three to hear

"Jessica thank you for joining us on live. Happy now thanks for having me. This is an interesting topic because we have written and hot so much about foam. Oh and so when I saw that you were writing about Jomo. Oh It's like we've got to talk to him and so I guess first of all. Can you start by explaining to everyone what you mean by the joy of missing out yet. So many people have heard Komo would like you mentioned which stands for the fear of missing out and not refers to this feeling that we get often when we're on social media scrolling through our friends photos those were they look like they're having a great time and we just get this feeling that were that other. People are having better lives in us at cooler than they're spending their time in in a more fun way and it's really bad for our self esteem or anxiety and so- Jomo is kind of the flip side of foam and it stands for joy of seeing outside this is about really embracing that sense of you know. Maybe I'm not out at this cool party. That looks amazing on Instagram. But I can still have fun if I'm home by myself. Yourself or not out at the coolest event. But there's lots of things I can do. Better shoots myself and who I am without having to participate and and maybe events or life that doesn't always look as amazing on social media. So are you saying that every moment doesn't have to be instagram. -able true it's true. It's entirely instagram. I love social media. Yeah I think it's about being conscious of when it's not always the best for us for our self esteem our emotions Sion's at that moment. Yeah I know when social media became so ubiquitous and there are a lot of studies that showed it does connect people and then it kind of peaked and we saw the the flip side of that where it really especially among teens and young adults really started increasing as you had mentioned anxiety and foam. Oh and so now to able to back off a little bit is a real skill. So how does someone start to do that. Because it's hard to not get sucked in. It's really hard. Yeah and now with smartphones with US twenty four seven in our pocket in our bags. It's really easy to just constantly be on it and not not got check ourselves on whether it's really helping us out so but I like to do things like I'm reading a book. Put my phone in a different room so I can't put down the book when I see a notification absent mindedly. It'll be scroll you can delete APPs that are making a lot of your time or even just turn off those notifications they send when so until your photo and one thing I've tried to do is try to use social media as treat someone hasn't been waiting in line or an elevator just automatically pick up my phone and start scrolling occupy my mind but I'm trying to look at it more as something thing like a weekly manager or a cookie. I might treat myself to leave but that is not my default being to fall back on board. Yeah I as I was just thinking about this interview I was in the elevator and our building and there are several people in the elevator with me and I looked around and every one of them was scrolling. Their social media feeds on the ground with subway. I live in New York in the mornings. And every single person including me Hazar had down in their phone at I'm not interesting at all the APIS but it's really amazing. How much phones have really taken over our lives in every basically every moment and to start embracing Jomo no you kind of have to shift your mindset and as you said you've created away to see as a treat but how do you get to the point where you say okay? This is even something I want to to do. How do you completely start shifting that mindset kind of the steps to get to where you are yeah? I think it's about just checking in with your own emotions on it. I Yeah I think a lot of us can use instagram or facebook is something that does bring us joy and something that does connect us even more friends and family bite. If you start to notice that it's really making you feel like you're missing out on things or you need to be living a different life and the one you're living to impress other people. I think that's where you need to start taking Steps like I talked about the curb social media usage or just find a hobby or call a friend or do something that more about real connection in your own life versus kind of spectating into other people's and does that feel uncomfortable at first. I think it can. Yeah I think when you see and when you look at your fees and you see everyone posting all these events and they're hanging out friends and you're not or they have a partner in your single right now. It's really hard at first. Yes but I think the more that you can be in tune with yourself and disconnect when it feels good to you then you know the more untrue Yobe and the happier he'll be in the long run absolutely and your writer. You've done a lot of things and quote was it. That made you decide you. Were going to start looking at Jomo and go ahead write about it. Can you talk about your journey to this point. Yeah I mean I have a Mo- at suffered from Pomo if you will and I think being a writer these days days means being connected to the Internet all the time and being on twitter and instagram and kind of talk about creating personal brand is a writer and I started to realize that that wasn't doing me any favors and it was making me focus. More on how my life appeared to others. Then how I was actually experiencing any gauging with my life and the people in it. I didn't invent the concept of Jomo but I heard about it and I started researching it and I thought. Wow this is really a good antidote to a lot of just a constant twenty percent of connectedness that is rampant in our society right now so then I started to dig into while what if there were resource where you could find. All these ways I dea is prepping to do that. Don't involve scrolling through your phone. You brought up a great point. Because it's for riders. It's artist anyone who's trying to build their own brand or just keep in the forefront and keep working you know you are encouraged to to really use social media. So how do you balance that out. Yeah I mean when thing I do is I tried tried to let myself be on social media and the Internet during the day when I either need to be for work or you know if I'm if I have a free moment and I want to look at instagram. That's great but I try to really unplug when Working Stein and think now is my time to focus on my family and my hobbies and connect with friends. And so I kind of I try to compartmentalize mental. Is it as much as I can but challen and I think something that if you really want to make an effort to do to really focus on day by day in our our and the great thing about your book is that you give us so many ways to handle this first of all. How many suggestions are there in the lot? There's over three green fifty between four hundred. Yeah so basically. If you can't find one to go within this there's rate how how did you start coming up with all of those because they cover such a broad range of things that you can do so many things that I wouldn't have thought of there is a broad range. I started with my hobbies activities and I just mind my own life for things that I enjoy doing and then I started serving friends and family and say okay. What do you do when you have a night in at home and you WanNa relax and so is the latter crowdsourcing some research and yeah but it was fun research? I'll say that. And so can you Kinda talk about. Let's say three of your favorite ones and then sure one of my favorites is have a hash. Tag Free throwback Thursday so there's excuse me there's this instagram movement called Hashtag Tag. TBT where you post old photos of yourself. But there's one of my favorite ones is coming up with ways to honor that don't involve social media so whether that's old photo albums asking parents to share their favorite memories or their old photos so kind of taking a moment to reflect on and maybe stir Robson happy nostalgia without having to go through your phone and posted you that another one of my favorites is meditate in unusual ways. I think awesome. We think of meditation as involving chanting or something. That's like very spiritual but you can actually meditate in ways that in all kinds of ways when my favorite is I find cooking Mary soothing so something like chopping garlic or onion lab repetitive movement. Like that can really quiet. Your mind will be just as powerful as at spiritual meditation. And then what am I it just silly favorites is having a nineties. Rom Com era eastbound from the ninety s that are on basic cable or a lot of us still have DVD's for. I doubt sitting in Beijing. Binge watching that was Hemi pretty
"tbt l." Discussed on Set Lusting Bruce: The Springsteen Podcast
"I was wearing a buddy holly t-shirt Because the Buddy Holly Story with Gary Busey had been released and I had just gone to a premiere or a movie. Yeah and and Bruce was a big fan of buddy holly and he. It's a big fan of Boolean at. That's why Philadelphia he brought GARY UC up on stage with him He commented on my shirt and Max looked at pretty said you went. I think I think that Bruce really like that shirt. So that's what I did. I gave the gave the shirt off my back that his greatness. Wow that is cool story. Yeah that would that is wonderful. How many times have you seen him? Total perform can't give you an exact number but I would say it certainly between ninety nine hundred so as I mentioned to you a glass track Bruce between seventy six seventy seven and the truth be told I of of course boarding the USA. But I didn't see any of the shows on the reunion tour which is something that I regret date is on my regret regret list as well just because life being the way it was just as a side note in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine? What became your day job something that until doing today? Today I worked for a small communications company. Montreal mostly work in the production end of things. Our clients include who does some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the US For instance like Pfizer. Each talk about your book or books. Why did you sign to do this? GimMe kind of the your origin story of why you decided to publish a book in in Canada that tail okay so As in your production you reference books so yes I've done published. I'm another author a lot of times I get mistakenly referred to as an author a letter writer. I was a photographer. But I am the publisher and publish two books on Bruce. The first one called for you and the actual full name that look everyone. Although we all referred to has for you is for you original stories and photographs by Bruce Springsteen's legendary fans. That's the the the full title That book was published in Two Thousand and seven and very limited edition so rolling talking just under under three thousand books hardcover but by two thousand eight. It was sold out the reason that I did that. Boca's because I felt that the the the springsteen audience the fan the community springsteen fan community needed a touchstone be able to relate their stories their contact with Bruce. I mean Bruce Unlike most artists there's no wall between Bruce and his and his fan base is fine community and this is this is demonstrated the day after day tour after tour year after year. Not only during the concerts when he allows himself to be woodsmen Stewart. I'm looking for where where he lies down in people move him through the audience. Right going crowdsurfing crowdsurfing exactly. I mean that was himself to be crowd surfed to the to the time when he does everyone to you know when Eli fans the Plays Guitar when he brings up you know. Eight and ten year olds sang songs with him and and and squeeze the sponges of water on his face. Get his soldiers no wall and let's face it. He's walking down the boardwalk and he picks up a guitar and he started serenading newly engaged. Couple he gets on stage at the Stone Pony so everyone has a story. I mean we all have stories and this is what I'm doing now. I'm telling you my story Fried Moist story was that I loved Bruce From the release said well the mid seventies and I was a photographer and I want I knew that. A lot of fans had photograph Bruce in the early seventies mid seventies and they had negatives and slides and images buried away in shoe boxes MHM In their attic in their parents hall. And I wanted to bring all of those things those hidden treasures into a book with people stories. And allow that to get out you know to the springsteen community and that's what I did I spent a long Awda time. You asked a lot of money. Because it was self published it was had to distribute myself and every minute was worth it. Because does the community was extremely extremely generous with someone who they didn't know was so here they are submitting their photographs. Their original negatives for me to work with And their stories and there were a lot of doubters oughta people wrote about it saying you know we hear this guy's putting together this book we don't know if it's ever gonNA come a be careful wherever and ultimately it did while I you know. There's four copies available on Amazon. The cheapest is three hundred and forty eight dollars and fifty cents and the there are two Going going up to four hundred ninety nine dollars. so yes it is certainly A collector's edition It looks folks. The cover looks beautiful and once again. This is what when I've done a couple of podcast asked I. I do a castle podcast. I do Dr. WHO bought gas? I am passionate about A LOT OF TV shows. I watch and I visit but I really did. Ah I went to our PODCAST leader and I said I just WanNa do springsteen podcast because I think and I guess maybe maybe I'm just biased. But I believe that springsteen's fans are the closest. Everything is the grateful dead right. This there is such such a community and such a caring of each other and so many great stories. I just think this would be an interesting podcast than rob was like. Hey you're passionate about it go for it and so far I've gotten great response and I'm so humbled that so many people want to talk to me so it sounds like a lot. That's what you did with the book you just. I want to have this collection for fans exactly as beautiful. It's exactly what I did. And and and let's face it Jesse. Everybody everything that you will interview will be biased. Yes it's yeah. Ah It's true If I might say just add one little thing of the book so the book as I mentioned has been sold out since two thousand eight eight since two thousand and I'd say ten for the last five years I've been raffling off a brand new when I say brand new this from the first printing I saved about twenty five copies of the The the the the Hardcover Book for You Save Twenty Five of those specifically to able to raffle those off for different charities and institutions and things like that and I've done so over the years and raised the old just about over four thousand dollars And I do that twice a year I do it in September in April. And it's any of your listeners. Listeners are interested to concertedly. Go to the lake That you're going to provide you on the show to to Uh either book because I still have a a website for the original book which is just for you Bruce Dot Com and the the other on the darkness tour We we post information on that. So that'll that'll be coming up. In April of twenty sixteen so if anyone is still looking to win in a book for that not having to pay the three hundred forty five dollars USD surprise me by the way I mean I know. Sometimes the books appear on On Ebay but I didn't know that there were a few available right now and the the most I've ever seen one Go for it was about three forty three fifty. Yeah but there are. There are four on Amazon. They're all from third party dealers. Chris and You know there is one for four ninety nine and The light in darkness There's eleven used. Most inexpensive is fifty six bucks but most are more in the Ninety to one hundred and none of them are new. Okay so then your listeners can can can take advantage of the very few that are left. Have the new. And and if they order them if they so desire and they want me to sign the book. I'm glad to do that absolutely and yeah I will get that blink. I certainly urge everyone to go Check out the book page and I know that I'm going to mention to my wife that this the light and darkness would be a great Christmas gift to go with me along with Bruce's new box set So that is amazing. That looks wonderful. Is there any specific. We're going to kind of come up soon. But is there any specific bruce songs that speak to you. They have a personal meaning to you. That you've used either during a celebration part of your life or a tough part of your life. My two favorite songs are from the darkness album I remember badlands ends. Buffalo may have seventy Gal. I show since. Let's say threw off the shackles of the restraining restrictions. Ryan Clark where he couldn't record he could play in. That's why he was able to do the chicken scratch tour and the other one. I mean. That's how you know. That's how he made made a living yet to make money. He had to pay his band. Great history banned but badlands. You know what I mean. He was fitting that hung out. It was so defined. It was so like you know it finally gained back by freedom. Yeah and I mean you know you could see the veins in his neck bursting he he was just on a mission and you could see. I mean You can see that he was ready to take the audience with him You know whether who would you know basically whether it was going to kill him and his audience as well. So that's that's a song that I relate to all the time I mean badlands. I mean I think take. That song is a song that he performs just about every concert on tour. I believe that's one of the top ones the other song which I was fortunate enough to see him perform With the extended extended intro Again after all those years was proven all night again. I I believe a defiant song. The song that the it's actually Tucson's because if you listen to the intro. It's it's it's beautifully intro. I mean it's it doesn't foretell anything. Think of what's about to come when when you know when he gets into the crouched and and just get into that Guitar Solo. I mean that that is something that is very special so those two songs really speak to me have over the years. They're absolutely my favorite you know. Even though I've heard it you know I've seen ninety two hundred shows. I've heard it ninety two hundred times four in Tehran still. You cannot the the the urged fist pump to sing along to feel. You know this is this is. This is the Bruce Fan community. All you know as one and you know I mean I I find those songs extremely extremely compelling to listen to you even even now you know and you know some people you might be fed up with ever have hope that the Lord let's say satiric songs or maybe not not as popular songs You know get played but I have to say that during those three songs if while for sure we always hear a badlands. Always you're born to run not always prove it all night right So one other song that will throw to you I think that's A bit appropriate drive at all night. Yes sorry drive all night all night them. That song again played beautifully. I mean remember Version of it from Florida with Bringing on Clarence and my Miami Steve and That that version really really just hits home with me you know something very different than than go up tempo. Som- something that you know shows Bruce as a writer of love songs get as as a writer of songs the almost like a ballot. You know something that something that you know is is longer. It's something that extends and you know those three or four songs I guess or at the top of wireless all the time. So if he tours in two thousand sixteen and A. There's rumors that it's going to happen. is there anything you want to hear if you get to see him live you know..
"tbt l." Discussed on Set Lusting Bruce: The Springsteen Podcast
"Well then I'm listening to set. lusting Bruce Starring Jesse Jackson who I met last year in Dallas. He's a beautiful man. Rock on Jesse Jesse. Hello everyone and welcome to a new. The episode of set lessening Bruce. Your podcast all about Bruce. Springsteen is music in mostly his fans. I'm your host Jesse Jackson. I always enjoy having people join me onset. Less than Bruce. It is what we do is what I love but I especially am happy when I I can get someone who's taken their love of Bruce and express it in a creative way and my guest yesterday. Daniel has done exactly that Daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me so tell our listeners. A little bit about yourself My name's dining Johnson I live in London. UK My two passions avoid been Makin love music. Unfortunately I have no skills for music so It's it's listening to music which is my passion. Which of course brings with Bruce Right? Yeah Yeah and So we're going to get into a little bit but Daniel has done So far to and how many episodes are you hoping to make or is this a well. It's GONNA be. I think originally my plan was to have four episodes as like a first Siri's okay And then to really decide it might just sit. Wow Is this little four episode arc about breach fans or maybe it will l.. Continue on but the good thing about doing a web series that is completely independent is. There's no roles. Do you know what I mean. I could just stop at the two. I've made only more It depends on the availability of the actors. They're very talented and they get a lot of acting jobs. So it's who knows but yeah well good. WELL WE'RE GONNA get into that a little bit more. I have tweeted the link to The episodes roads and so hopefully my listeners objected out and we'll also have more details in the show notes to bid the start out with though you mentioned you have two passions you know music and film making but talk about growing up. What what Kinda captivated you about music and filmmaking I noticed on your facebook page. You've got a clip from one of my favorite movies. The apartment so hello it is such it is such an unconventional love story. And and such a you know we we could get on to that for a whole hour out so now about the apartment feels so relevant and knew when when I mean it doesn't feel dated whatsoever absolutely do you know. Sometimes when I recommend out friends Out Friends out films two friends. I have to warn them that is dated dated a woman. But you know you have to give it a gut but with the apartment I think you within a few minutes of watching it. You'RE GONNA love it because it's so so well made it filled. It feels like it could be modern film to happen to be in black and white like a period film because it's so is just so well may I do agree and and and you know I do the same thing you know. I'll discover an older film and I'LL WANNA share it with a friend and And like you know the John John Ford stagecoach like okay you. You're going to feel like this is a cliche big all the characters but understand. This was one of the first time they had done on that kind of Laurie. Yeah absolutely and sometimes it's the films of influence other films. The end up looking the most unoriginal yet. Because we've seen everything that's come come since I started going. No no no I was just GonNa say but like I had not seen in a while or I really had never watch watch the day the Earth stood still the original and four or five years ago. I watched I went. Oh my goodness there are times. When people say a movie he is a classic and it's more for the influence it gave and how it broke ground? Yeah and then. There's other times where you go. Ah That's just a great movie absolutely and it's funny because I think that the apartment and bruised. There's something very similar in town. Do you know what I mean. The apartment is just something that was very. I think if you love. The apartment is a very personal connection to very personal movie and I think that is like the relationship issue people have reversed. You know what I mean bothered in being. The apartment doesn't always get listed top ten films ending the apartments. Something this always there bought Bob the people who do love it really love it. Yeah and Daniel in a Lotta ways the Shirley maclaine character could could very very easily be a character in Abreu Song you know. I had a friend once that said that often the female characters in Bruce Songs have a little bit of a past and are a little bit damaged as is the male characters. And so you know. I've never thought about that before. But the apartment truly could be a springsteen song. Yeah because you know And we talked a little bit on email before about thunder road at right like they both have flaws in that song and they're finding each other there and I think the characters in the apartment the same thing absolutely yeah instant yeah very interesting so I wanna go both ways so you you're picked you wanNA talk about growing. What kind of music you listen to growing up or you WANNA talk first or films you wanted to talk about about whatever I mean? We talked about music and I'm not sure I will do cross over but yeah music. It's funny 'cause you implied email. You'd be awesome question. I was trying to think about where where I came from. I think two things one is. I remember. It might be my parents I remember. Just sit in. That'd be sitting in the living room watching TV or whatever that'd be doing and my dad had this big pair of headphones and is to sit in the corner with headphones on and just would be begun varies records and he say days and stuff just to sit in that listen and like so much of my interest in music came from die experience and that has a very young age. That was nice like eight nine ten eleven and in the second. Paul that is I think in school around the age of fourteen. Fifteen if Dane. I didn't I think I was different to allow the other kids. I didn't have the same interests them. and whatever was feeding their minds in their lives in society wasn't and wasn't doing the same thing for me and I needed something different and that came from from films from books and from the music. Listen to and it was around them when I started finding you know the the I still to this day obviously including burst Daniel. Do you know like like what kind of are there a couple of films that really you know struck you as Oh my God this is something magical in maybe influenced you a good question. You know it's interesting. This is my interest in film. I never had that experience that people talk about when and you know they watched eat he and it and it just took rushing for me. It's a lot more against that personal connection of you know again like the the apartment is an interesting point because I'm a poster in my room here I've got. Its its films like that and it. It wasn't a ways I mean I remember when Jerry Maguire Guac came out I was only I was like twelve when that came out and that again is not necessarily anyone sees as a classic movie but something about the character in his journey. I'm just connected with me. And it was that thing of being able to watch a film and see someone go food the everyday conflicts that we'll we'll go through and come out. The other side is a changed person and that for me was the magic of it. It didn't have to be the big sci fi movies or any Jonah on a main things that into this day like it's funny everyone again. I have a movie night. My Bravo will watch like a bunch of films was and we're very specific in the. We only like stuff that we feel like almost like it would be able to happen to us if you had in that place and as soon as as we see someone jump on a spaceship when now that's not the film homeless that one really real. Yeah I I totally understand. I am a big comic book Nerd and I love You know a lot of science fiction films and everything but it is the smaller caller like for some reason notting hill as a modern film. Just if I'm flipping channels in its on. I'm locked locked in absolutely guessing. I love that journey. And just the yeah the back and forth of that Do you know I think that is as well. Like a specially with like romance films. I know in here was a great example. Is that it's sometimes. It's hard as a guy to be that romantic or to admit you care about love that monkey so when you from one of these films and we might these excuses always just flicking through and blahdy Blah but actually I think it really resonates helps us live ourselves ourselves that we probably don't always give ourselves access to you know and and I also think not only is it a it's a neat story and great performances services but I love the soundtrack on that movie and the way they use music on their date and when they go over the wall all and and that scene where you know when you say nothing at all which is one of my favorite songs and they just capture that and then the The year you go through our. He's walking in the museum. Yes really really create does some of that film I think he was Elvis. Costello's The steelers shave great music in that though migrate absolutely so Daniel Win. Did you find Bruce and why I was he some things specialty. Good good question. I I was one of my favorite bands when ours was counting. Crows their work. And they they'd cover bruce quite law and they had one of their songs rain king where they would actually sing the whole of thunder road in the middle of it. Honey honey if you haven't heard it and the listeners it's what I love it by grew up with some people you know real bruce traditionalist listen to it and they're like Oh always wreck in the song but I love it and they covered Atlantic City and some of based on pieces. And there's something in that band. I loved the tone of they sing about him when I was finding this. Remember as well in nineteen I mean I was born in nineteen ninety four okay and by time napster came around trusting was with the late nineties. I was I was just very curious about music and I would if someone had cover of US interested in cover versions of songs to the point where you know obviously like everyone I knew born in the USA but and thunder road and born to a biologist outgoing type in the song name and download. Everything could've been a cover of it and I just died..
"tbt l." Discussed on PT Pintcast - Physical Therapy
"So yes that was my talk and as I walked off stage some Bellamy joins me right now I'll be honest kind of different I mean I was excited when you guys asked out something you did outside this podcast but yes you have the experience of a live when you do them right and man everybody this year really didn't right they're awesome but what was that experience when you really force someone to be on time or knowing that anything can on through and that was great on the part because that was really like a great time to versus a full room it was actually easier with more people but you know definitely definitely exhilarating definitely the NFC right hersal having having done at the year before so let's talk about the themes of what you talk about Iraq a little bit similar to what I talk communication skills are going to hell pt's PTA's students across the spectrum that careers area where you feel that you know pt's PTA's and students as a whole Nita step up was one of my you know kind of points to hit because a feel like myself included when I was a ever see I over your shoulder you just want you want to get as much of it out as you can you know is probably the thing we should focus listen as a student I don't care for your it thinking about it like that approaching it like listen you got fifteen seconds to give this answer what is the most it'd be thank out five minutes is going to be really valuable what's remarkable how much story there could be key school I have to think if you're most confident about your ability to talk patients you have a memorable sort of patient experience that that gave you a valuable lesson in terms of how you talk in a rehab all through the summer and then get back to being a teacher being a gym teacher P. E. Teacher Actually Day was actually my last day and I remember her just being you're a lot more you're a lot more relaxed now than time she's slowly Kinda backed off it's one thing to talk to a patient it's another we have someone looking over it was making a comment from me over twelve weeks and she's like I essentially net that actually went a long way for me so that when you got that feedback were you able then Ed that would you met your next patient for the first time because this I pay some were so honest ask from her was if you're going to really give me an honest and true compliment you really mean that that helped a lot so I I really didn't appreciate that so I'm Oh I think we focus on a lot of what we know and not enough in the delivery on hey what will your plan of attack be you know how are you going to deliver this it can be a really long a short question with a long preamble so we've talked about the first awareness problem and so usually whenever that conversation starts starts with somebody sore physical therapy can have a profound impact and there are lots of those examples right what's in there so frustrating because we know physical therapists can make an impact but at the same time hey they prefer the idea physical therapy to surgery or prescription drugs even if that doesn't necessarily I believe physical therapy can work and public that basically doesn't use physical therapy as say it obviously includes ingrained cultural behaviors about how quickly there's GonNa be lot preamble as a related aside you know America's obesity if we kind of you know if we take those other things off the table and we look at but there there's a difference to you made their compared to something like direct access on a day in and make an impact in terms of raising awareness in terms of telling people what they do he's whether you WanNa talk about areas of you know such as you know pediatrics up providing kind of enough data but not so much data that we overwhelm people the message lost and so do you have one mine mine typically is branded on I don't have a the vast inpatient acute outpatient I mean we can go everywhere recovery fleet.
