How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall
"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah.

Next traffic update less the intimidates away in Delhi, CBS. Ta Glickman is in the Weather Center right now, our meteorologist Todd, It's good to have you here because I'm just a civilian and I can only see a little bit of data, but you've got more information than I do. Are you seeing actual flooding happening anywhere Because of this? Yeah, we've got watches and flash flood warnings out scattered about. I think it's going to be another couple of hours before it comes widespread, Wayne. Ah, just looking at the radar right now. The kinds of radar echoes. I'm seeing other kinds that could put down 1 to 2 inches of rain in it ours. So you do that for two or three hours, And that's of course, an instant flooding. And as we've been saying throughout the day, most of that is going to be occurring. From the city, West and north.

Seattle Kraken: NHL announces name of 32nd franchise
"These story of the week the Seattle thirty two's have a name. They are the Seattle cracking before we drill down and getting some of the. Pacific says a Sandy Atlantic about this. How important was the events of this week for Seattle for the NHL? Like how big a deal is this for the League? It's a huge deal and first of all. It was a fun topic Jeff. Life is hard for people right now. And that was a fun couple of hours. The reveal the video, the look at the Jersey. The name like whether people like the name or didn't like it. They were kind of laughing like Whoa. That's really off the board and I know you don't like it. Because of the nicknames that can come from it, but I love it. It's different. It's different for hockey. It's a step out of the. The normal, it's bold. It's it's a change. It's a try it something new, and I think hockey badly needs that. There were a couple of interesting things I've found out in some conversations number one when they were talking about the Jersey with the people from Adidas one of the things they were saying is we have to imagine what it would look like to lift the Stanley Cup? In this Jersey we can't think that it's going to. To look terrible to lift the Stanley Cup in this Jersey and I liked the Jersey. I liked that way of thinking i. think that's very big. The other I heard that was interesting, was that they chose the name crack and I, and then they went about the identity, the logo and the Jersey and the like the story line of the cracking, and there were some people who heard the name and they were like, are you? You, sure about this, is this really a good idea? And then they started to see the logo and the identity behind it, and they bought in and a lot of times when expansion teams come in. They won't reveal the name the logo end the Jersey at the same time they'll do maybe name and logo at once and Jersey later. This was a win because they did all three at once and I think that's sold people. I think they had to do it that way. And I I think you're right and to the point like we've talked about before I, wanted sasquatch. Works on a whole lot of levels, but again as I pointed out on this podcast before I've realized, and I've been dragged kicking and screaming into this realization that not everything is for me, and that's okay now. I don't want to I gotTa WanNa shoot an Arrow and then paint a circle around it after it lands I. Don't WanNa. Be That Guy Oh. Yeah I, liked it all along cracking his great. Oh a homerun tape measure, but at that reveal. I didn't hate it. Like I love the colors I love you collars look great. The colors are great. The logo looks great. I can get used to crack in and the one. You're think is a good one. It is different. It is distinct and the one expectation that I think we all have a bow. Seattle at this point is that everything they do is going to be new is going to be progressive is gonNA surprise a lot of people whether it is the name which is very nontraditional, whether it's the first you know green arena climate pledge arena. Everything they do is going to be different. We expect that they're hiring policies progressive the way that they are going to do business as progressive I. Just hope that it doesn't stop now I. Don't think that it does but what does do Elliot selfishly since I have conceded sasquatch. Bang the drum for different colored ice for Seattle Oh my God. I knew you're GONNA. All all our producer I wrote down actually I got to tell you I wrote down. When does jeff come up with the different colored? Ice Oh my God yeah. I'm telling. Pretty, it'd be this early. It will put it this way Jeff. If one team's going to do it, it's going to be this one well. They WANNA. They're promoting. They have the green arena, so do green ice here you go. Here's your chance. I'd love to see if the NHL allows this you know. It reminds me a lot of the raptors. When the raptors came in new, there were a lot of people didn't like raptors and I remember. John Bits of doing an interview on the Fan with Bob McCowan and John. biddle said Bob. What do you think of the name and he goes Bob? Said I hate it and John biddle said good. That means that you're not in our target audience so I! Don't care what you think about it. And the other thing, too, is you talk about the team? Look at their twitter feed now that we have a name or strategizing all the ways to draft your favorite player. Yeah, like there are people in the league. Telling me I'm sick of these guys already sold. The rivalries are building. Yes, rivalries are building so the other two Jeff I I'd heard was. I heard the amount of meetings over the small details were unreal. The color of the is how many is you know I didn't realize I saw the video. When you look at the logo, the S has tentacle through it. like that black line is the tentacle of the cracking, and there was one person who told me that They weren't so sure about this until they saw that video and I have to say identify with that. When I saw the video and saw that that's what that black line was supposed to be. I thought that was really cool. What are the things about the whole reveal by? Seattle is the security around at the secrecy around. It the lack of leaks. I thought for sure that by the morning of the announcement it would be out there and confirmed by somebody I'll tell you the one thing that I learned from one of maybe if not my favorite movie of all time jaws. Is this Don't show the shark. Secret that movie is they don't show the shark until much later on. Don't show the shark and the one thing that Seattle did in this entire process is. They didn't show the shark like sure. There was a temptation there to extend the metaphor. Show the shark, but they didn't do it. Even in that video as everybody is going through this pruder's style frame by frame by frame, trying to look for clues I gotta give it to Seattle Man. They didn't show the shark at all. One of the big conversations I heard after they decided the name was. What's the Mascot GonNa look like. Well and that's when you get the rivalry about DETROIT WITH DETROIT. Yes, it looks too much like a traditional octopus. It won't. There's no way it will. No of course not, and they also said like the Jersey, the crack and has to look. Not like a WIMP, it can't be a wimpy cracking I. Don't know enough about mythological creatures. I'm not sure there can be a wimpy cracking. Does it exist I? Doubt it every movie I've ever mccracken. They're pretty nasty, but they definitely talk about that. We can't have a soft cracking. So the jerseys were revealed the branding is revealed and Tim Leiweke, who's a CEO of the Oak View Group was on hockey central with us. The day of the announcement and he let something slide. Let something slip. That was pretty interesting. We spent more time going back and look at the Metropolitans. In the fact, they won the Stanley cow, so we spend a lot of time looking at that history and tradition. I won't spill all the beans, but I'll tell you. There's a third and Fourth Jersey coming. Eventually wore on her that legacy in that tradition. Hundred Seventeen team. Of course when the won the Stanley Cup I would imagine that if they're winking at history that hard, and I think that they will. That will probably see Abana raising on opening night while you're going to do something special rate. I think they'll do a number of the special things on opening night I would imagine that would be one of them. Yes, and you know a nice touch too here. We are here here. He goes, SEATTLE. Here's here's a million ideas here on this podcast. HAP Holmes was the goaltender for that Seattle team homes played on a number of Stanley Cup, champions real good goaltender born in Aurora in the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame, died relatively young I think it is early fifties in Florida, but he wore a baseball cap. I think it might have been the first goaltender in the NHL to ever wear a baseball cap. It would be nice if they did something with HAP Holmes and abate. I don't know what it is I'm just doing this off the top of my head, but if someone is wearing a hap-. Maybe it's whoever the goaltender is for. The opening ceremony wears a HAP, Holmes baseball hat that would be a nice touch for the. Hockey nerd like me out there. WHO DIDN'T GET SASQUATCH well? One thing I looked up was to Seattle have any retired numbers and they don't. Remember when Ottawa came in had an old retired number. Frank Finnegan, and they honored it. But Seattle, I can't sense that they do. Okay, so now. Seattle's job is to make this team to create this team out of nothing not unlike what Vegas went through most recently. Do. They have a friend in the flat Cap Seattle All I. We talked about this last week. I, think they're a huge winner. In the new CBA their job just became. If easier is the right word, but I they gain some real advantages and. A few teams have said that to me that the mistakes Vegas they were going to avoid them now. Circumstances have dictated that someone's going to have to make them, and it's a huge advantage for them. There's no question from a financial point of view Elliott. We just mentioned the flat cap here second ago. Given the economic realities NHL NHL is going through now, and we'll go through in the next couple of seasons I know. I opened up by saying how important is Seattle team, but I'll ask it again from an economic point of view to this team, not just become where the more important teams in the NHL team thirty two new infusion of money. Well there's no question that that's true and new infusion of enthusiasm to the Batman, and daily made it very clear and their negotiations with the players that ownership cash flow was very important. They got expansion money that players don't share in from Vegas and there were some owners who thought they didn't get enough. In terms of the system stuff, edgy arbitration that they wanted, but one of the things they could be sold on was that they've expansion money coming in, and that's their win, and that's cash, so there's no doubt that Seattle's big for a lot of reasons, and the other thing too is even before this. There were people who were predicting. Predicting that Seattle would be a top ten revenue team in the NHL. They're gonNA need that. They're merchants already hot negative. That's one of the reasons. It didn't get out because it's not ready at right me, you can order stuff, but I learned through this process that one of the ways that logos and names get leaked Jeff is that you have to share them with vendors or you presale them to vendors and things like that. They didn't do it this time. They didn't do it this time day. Kept it all close Alright talk, congratulations, seattle you now have a name in the NHL has team
Dave Franco Set to Play Vanilla Ice in an Upcoming Biopic
"Rapper Vanilla Ice. That biopic is called so far to the extreme. That's the working title right now, from a high school dropout selling cars in Dallas to having the first hip hop single to tap the billboard charts with ice ice baby. Ah young vanilla ice struggles with stardom, extortion attempts and selling out as he makes music history. Amen. I'm here for that. My first reaction is not right now. But no, I'm definitely we all own to Ta scream in. Ah, vanilla Ice. Had a had a couple of records. I really liked eyesight, Baby, It's a tough tune. Good boy that got damn ninja rap off the teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle soundtrack. Now that was fire dropping clues. Bomb forgot. Damn Ninja Rabbit injury Golden Joko Ninja! Go, Go, go! I do. Remember, though it's degree was seen going to rock the town without being seen. Have you ever seen a turtle get down, slamming and jamming to the new swing?

And they said it would be kind of like how they took a liking to the disaster artist, which at that that movie was hilarious. So I mean, as long as you don't get it, theatrical release, you know, I'm saying as long as there's something like a made for TV movie. I'm fine with that. If it gets like a big budget, theatrical release, I'm screaming white privilege all goddamn day. Okay. But I'm sorry to bring up a lot of issues about like a white rapper tapping the hip hop starts and all of those things so they could be interesting. All right now, J. Cole
Trump's tanking in the polls
"Anzalone, welcome to campaign HQ David Blah always good to hear your voice. Yeah, you and I met I back in Iowa back in the eighties, not to date ourselves, but the answer. Let me start with this. Let's talk about swing voters for minute. Obviously Joe Biden is doing. Incredibly well in public polls I'd assume he's also doing well in your own polling correct. Yeah I think that it's fair to say that. We're seeing a lot of what the public polls are showing that you know. This is in some ways I. Mean you've seen you've been through a lot of presidential campaigns, and as you said, we've been in this together for over thirty years, so we've seen a lot of historical data and quite frankly what we're seeing right in the public bowls and internal is. Is pretty historic right, so let's start with what we might consider. The Swing Voter Side of the ledger, and then we'll talk about some of the turn out registration targets, so you know you have been part of campaigns world. We Lost White Seniors by twenty points. We a static. You guys right now. white seniors or tied of which means with seniors overall your head. Talk about that like why is that? How much of that do you think it'd be maintained over the next fifteen weeks? I think that there's a couple of things you know. When we take a look at swing, voters There's actually like four really important groups that. You know everyone wants to compare how Biden's doing public Poland's with Hillary but what's really interesting about key group set of moved from sixteen. Is that Biden's not only doing much better and leading in most polling with Voters over sixty five, but he's leading with suburbanites. He's leading with independence, and he's leading with college voters, and so those are like four really important groups that not only did trump win, but is you know Romney won right and so listen? These presidential candidates. Have Different coalition I mean people like to talk about the Obama coalition in. It's important. But Biden's coalition, GonNa look different and clearly part of this started in two thousand, eighteen where we saw suburban women Super White Women College Educated Women but also college educated men really move. I mean take a look at Gretchen Whitmer who is a a a client of ours in places like Oakland County Right She also wanted to Comb County Reagan Democrats which is interesting, which also biting one in the primary, so we're seeing these swing. Voters these groups that Biden is bringing around that is different than the coalitions that we've seen. Seen in the past while at the same time narrowing margins within the Republican base with white voters and also rural voters, and keeping on par with our democratic base, right with young voters in women, and so You know when you, of course you know two thousand eight you. You saw this I. Mean when you are moving, and you have a moment, or if you sustain that moment, you tend to do well almost everywhere, meaning that even in the Republican base voters, rural voters and things like that, you tend to narrow the margins, and they're on margins. In tough places. Is just as important as doing well in some of these other swing areas. Now just specifically unseen Yars I. Listen, you know we see trump's jump rating just getting worse and worse on handling the coronavirus eppendorf pandemic clearly seniors Vulnerable the most at risk, and I think they're reacting directly to that risk in terms of feeling like he didn't get serious enough. He didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan and now with the kind of the surge feel like he's put his head in the sand and I think it's just cost him dearly with that largest age bracket the motor sixty five, and over the last Democratic presidential candidate to win sixty five and over. Is Al Gore so that Kinda gives you an idea. Of! How important this is! Yeah, reminded. Every election is its unique beast so on whether it's seniors suburban voters, you mentioned both college educated women and men Joe Biden right now, doing extremely well. Two questions for you John Do you think he's close to his ceiling there and the job really for your campaign is to maintain those numbers. Do you think there's room to grow? And secondly just how durable do think it is? Do you think that some of these voters are already locked in and is going to be really hard for trump to dislodge them? You get a feeling that where we are today. is very difficult for trump and listen first of all we should say we. We all have a collective PTSD right from two thousand sixteen, and so none of us are getting overseas, but at the same time you know you have to acknowledge the good polls because you know, there's a couple of things that are different from where Joe Biden is from past democratic nominees, including Barack Obama and and twelve. In that, he's also at fifty percent. Right at this point in time whatever what hundred four days and you know there's been no Democrat or Republican candidate you go all the way back to two thousand who's reached that threshold and so you know that's really import. The other part is is that Joe. Biden isn't scary to voters. I mean that's one reason he's leaving with independence. And if you take a look at I don't know the NBC Paul I think is is a good example or one of the most recent ones where I think it's the Fox foxhole. We're Biden is actually above water popularity. Naturally trump is underwater, but trump's very unfavorable is at forty seven percents, and binding I. Think is at thirty one. There's win been one thing that I think when they write about Joe Biden in the primary and the general election is the stability of his vote, right? It really hasn't moved that much. I mean trump's has moved down during the primary I mean. We're biden kind of started at the beginning. He ended at the end. It was very stable. Other people moved all around, but Joe Biden was incredibly stable and I think. Think that we're GONNA see that same dynamic here and we have really in the last several months. The Joe Biden's vote has been incredibly stable it's in a couple of points to the fifty percent mark. trump has moved down right and that is that is a good thing but the stability is important for Joe Biden. One is how voters view him and to how voters view trump. You know there was the I think it was the B. Poll that showed fifty percent of voter said there was no chance at all that they would vote for trump, and so your question is you know, will biden's numbers remain stable, and there just seems to be a universe of voter that is completely cut off from trump and it's because of how people you him prior. Let's think about this. Let's dissect prior to the pandemic. People you know we always heard the same thing. Whether it was you know for for Biden. Her for US Senate race for a congressional race. Is that people disliked? His behavior is tweeting his bowling. He was a jerk They basically just didn't like him as a human being, but hey, you know it's not like some of his agenda and his policies. They like how he took on. The median shook things up in Washington, DC. Now they're problem with him. Is Not only behavior how he reacted in a protest and things like that doubling down. Of Racism but their main problem is. Is that they feel that he failed the leadership test on the three crises, whether it was the health and crisis, whether it was the police brutality protests crisis, and now the economic crisis, which is hurting his economic numbers, and so they're now viewing him His biggest problem isn't just his behavior which they haven't forgotten. It's his lack of leadership or his mishandling of these crisis, so three and a half years in their judging him president. President. They're not judging him as a personality. That is his biggest problem right now, and you know I don't think that you know that's going to change. I think that we have a couple more crises potentially coming very soon, college kids and K. through twelve kids start going to school and mid August and you know it's GonNa be It's going to be really a a really tense time. I think it's GonNa. Be a problem for a lot of communities, a lot of states, a lot of holds and that is the problem. They're going to squarely put. On trump because he didn't take this series at the beginning, you didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan. And that's a problem I mean. We have more crises coming quite frankly. Yeah, now that's that's a great point and your point about his very under favorable I mean if he's sailing into voting time in late September and October with forty seven percent, unfavorable lombardo grounds He's really up against a wall there so John. I, think one of the mistakes. Sometimes you can make whether it's politics. Are Businesses your opponent? Your competition does something puts. Puts out, an ad or new strategy and you know you're like well. That's dumb and of course I've learned like you better. Take a minute and think through why they think it's smart right, but on this suburban thing what what strikes it's almost like trump got a briefing saying you're hemorrhaging the suburbs and he's like Ooh I. Know what I'll say. I'M GONNA say Joe Biden is going to destroy the so like. Do you see any evidence that that tactic which seems to be front and Center for trump, and his campaign now has any chance of succeeding. Listen I think that you know you and I have been through a lot of campaigns, and when you're in a campaign where you're behind, and you're behind eight or ten points, what do you do you just kinda start throwing things at the wall and he tends to throw things at the wall I. Mean You know in one week? He's hitting us on. China I mean all paid TV the next week. He's in his on. You Know Nafta now. Now, he didn't on defunding the police and so they try a lot of different things out right but the fact is is that trump was up on TV in the battleground states for a couple of months prior awesome. You sure what the number is, but I think it's close to fifty million dollars. We never saw the numbers. Move I. Mean you see that in the public calling right? I mean our numbers actually got better. His numbers got worse even though he was on TV by himself and very high levels as well as with his allies, and so you know now. We're on TV. So now we're in a position to you. Know have our own message. Ever Own Voice of voters see what Biden's about What's his agenda and his vision and again we don't see any deterioration a matter of fact, if the last ten days are any indication and again we don't you know. We don't get over our skis on this but the. The. Number of polls have showed this in double digits. is a good place to be. It doesn't mean that we're not gonNA work hard doesn't mean we don't take anything for granted. We know that we just gotTa fight for every vote and we know that it's going to get closer because that's what thing, but that's just. The natural physics of presidential races but I think that again it goes to the opponent meaning Joe Biden. clearly isn't Hillary Clinton. You were talking about very unfavorable in two thousand sixteen. Trump's very unfavorable was forty seven percent, and Hillary's was forty five percents, so there was a lesser of two evils dynamic. Going on, you always see this kind of analysis of what they call double haters, people who dislike both candidate. Well you can't call them double haters this time because they are. They hate trump, but they just kinda just like Joe. Biden are they dislike politics? Right is so his very unfavorable with that group is you know literally I? Think it's a quarter of trump's, and he wins that group by forty plus points depending on the pulled that you see, and that's actually really important again. They don't see Joe Biden scary. They see him as a compassionate relatable. Guy you know they keep the fact that he's lunch Pail Joe and he's a guy. WHO's GONNA look out. For Working Families and he is, you know someone that one. The trump and their allies throw punches. you know they? They're not sticking like their sticking and past presidential campaign. Right, so I WANNA. Talk about filling in the blanks on Joe. Biden, what you guys have started to do, but I want on I. WanNa talk about battlegrounds from and so you made an important point. which is you know when you've got momentum? Momentum in a campaign particularly national campaign. You see you see you see progress everywhere. It's just not in a particular state or region, so I a couple of questions one. Are you seeing with swing voters in particular? Are you seeing the same strength for Joe Biden in the south in the Midwest and the West and I guess secondly I would've thought. Let's say ninety days ago hundred twenty days ago, trump's floors, floor and battlegrounds. Forty six. It looks like it may be lower. So what do you think is I? Mean I agree with you that you know when you see a poll right now. That shows Biden fifty forty. You know the other ten percents gotta go somewhere. And you know probably more of that comes to trump it goes to you guys because you're bumping up against a pretty pretty good and healthy ceiling, but I'm curious kind of what where? Where you see both, is there uniformity in terms of the movement across the country and secondly kind of? Where do you see trump's floor now? Yeah, well, I do think that there's again. We you know you can talk about Joe Biden's feeling, but really when you look at it, historically all the way back to two thousand is just presidential candidates ceilings I mean there's not a lot of presidential candidates who've gotten over fifty percent. Who won right and so the fact that we're in this divided country and there are third party. Candidates who siphoned off universe. Hopefully it won't be as much as two thousand sixteen, and we don't think that it will be but the ceiling is is is almost as close to fifty or a little above for almost everyone right I mean that just kinda historically has how it's happened. Happened in the battleground states like you, you say whether it's Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Arizona I, mean he's having trouble getting to the mid forties right I, mean he in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania in Wisconsin in the real clear politics or the fivethirtyeight average of polls, he stood at forty, one and forty two percent now Florida in Arizona and in North Carolina or Kinda GonNa Act like Florida. And North Carolina in Arizona, they're they're always going to be tighter. Right I mean like Scott Ours no always says Florida tight and that's true now we haven't. You in a lead that's above the margin of error. That hasn't happened very often. That, you and I have done enough Florida. politics polling to know that that is a state that tends to tighten up again. I think that we have. An advantage there because of how we're doing with seniors, and we're competing David I. Mean you know it's like this campaign is going to look a lot like you to you like two thousand eight because of where we're competing? The balanced expansion. In the media markets in Florida, well, where do you WanNa? See I mean I. Remember Two thousand like it was yesterday we were. We were up on TV at high levels. Competing with McCain wear Panama City Talahassee. Jacksonville Gainesville, we were fighting the fight in the panhandle. Right and you know. I mean protect protect I four and all that type of stuff. You GotTa do well Miami Dade Palm Beach etc, but when you see a campaign competing against the Republican in the Republican areas That's what you gotTA. Do to win a place like Florida, and a lot of campaigns often have to make the cost benefit analysis, or make the bad decisions, and this campaign, because it's been under great leadership and the reason, a lot of money gives you the ability to run the race. You need to run to win, right? So I want to just ask you quickly third party because you mentioned it and you live through this horror in two thousand sixteen, where trump could win states like Wisconsin with forty seven point two percent of the vote because the third party vote share was. Higher than historical averages right now in your research and it seems to be true in public research. You're seeing that those numbers may revert more to two percent or less that we've gotten used to write, and that's huge because your ceiling is higher than trump's. I would guess at this point right and so I think that I think that this is how I look at that and you know I mean when you pull when you add third party candidates two point, they always get more on the pole than they actually do on election day right I mean. That's just kind of the dynamic, and so you know you have to. You have to test things a bunch of different ways. But I think there's one thing that we all kind of instinctively know that in two thousand sixteen. There were how a lot of voters Bernie voters etc. WHO stayed at home? WHO VOTED FOR GARY? Johnston voted for Jill Stein and ninety nine percent of them who vote did one of those three things were ninety nine percent. Sure that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, and so they were doing a protests about. those voters now know what's at stake. And they're You know their their enthusiasm. If you will to get vote or get, trump out of office is incredibly high. It's an incredibly intense, and so I think that that dynamic and quite frankly Bernie Sanders and his campaign and the Joe Biden and his campaign have worked together on a plethora of issues. will make the dynamics here much different so we don't see that bleed, and and internally we see we see that you know. Joe Biden just has better with Bernie Voters Than Hillary Clinton did in two thousand sixteen well does tighten up. That's going to be such an important dynamic. So, You mentioned You know the Biden campaign. has a very expansive electoral map again. Something we might not have expected months ago. and you know those are pretty weighty decisions. You're involved in those decisions with General. Molly Dylan and Donald other leadership in the campaign, but John when you think about the places that look now plausible. Not Win them, but you know Georgia in other poll out in Texas today publicly had Biden Upright one Ohio Iowa those are likely not going to be in. My view is two hundred seventy electoral vote, but do you think there's a scenario where you could get surprise? Where maybe you don't win in north, Carolina and Georgia, or is there really a stack ranking on these states? Well as you know, there's always a stack ranking and you were at the you know. Know Genesis in two thousand twelve of analytics right, and so there's a there's a lot of simulations things that you know you and I didn't learn about growing up in this business and there's and there's tipping points, states and things like that. I think that at the end of the day again. The leadership of this campaign is incredibly focused and disciplined, and you can see where we're buying TV. It's public and it's always you know reported on. You know we're very focused on the six battleground states, and you know until you know, they move on to another state. We will be focused on those six states in a very disciplined way, because that is the ball game I think that what's difficult for trump is that he's not only communicating in those six days. He is playing defense right now in Ohio and Iowa, so he is spending a lot of money in Ohio in Iowa. Just protecting himself he's also up in Nevada right, which I don't understand, but you know, right. Right and so she's the one that is actually expanding a lot of money. and I can't say in an undisciplined way. He is in trouble, so he has to expand his hip protected. He has to expand but right now. the Joe Biden campaign is very disciplined and very focused and you know will there be expansion states. You know there's a big map on the wall just like there is you know in two thousand, eight and twelve and sixteen, but you gotta be careful, and you have to be very analytical about doing that.
America's 'Never-Ending Battle Against Flesh-Eating Worms'
"It was two thousand sixteen in the Florida keys, and a little species endangered deer called. The key deer weren't acting right. People just start noticing that these seem to be having these wounds on their heads that Sarah Zang a reporter with the Atlantic. She says the deer looked like they'd been injured by something. There were gashes on their heads. They're kind of like walking on the street like really shaking their head and they're trying to shake something off. Warning right here. It is about to get gross like like real Gross Kim Gable is a big, pine key resident and the deer in her area. You'll see gaping holes or wounds, their neck, or in their in their head, and you'll see them shaking their head. You would see dear like almost half its head would be missing, and you could see down to the skull. And eventually ears start dying in. You know it's become this big mystery of why dying, especially with these really really awful wounds on their heads. Local scientists looked into it and eventually tests confirmed the deer were infected with the parasite. Its scientific name is see Omnivore ax, which means man eater. It's more commonly known as Descru- were. The scorer is actually the magic of a fly, and this flight only lays its eggs in the wounds of live animals, and it's maggots squirm only life flesh so they're. They're flesh-eating squirms and. Sarah they sound. Your they're your best friend not. As they eat, the wound grows attracting more flies, which create more maggots which turn into more flies, you gotTA. Be can spread really fast, so local authorities in Florida took some drastic measures to okay. At least fifty of the one thousand key deer, the national key deer refuge have been euthanized on the roads out of town. Checkpoints were set where anyone traveling with a pet needed to stop, so those pets leaving the keys have to get their animal's checked out to make sure they are clear. Clear this deadly parasite, the goal which they achieved by the way was to protect as many deer as possible and keep the screw worm from leaving the keys see this outbreak was kind of a fluke screw worms used to devastate livestock in the US, but they were a radical more than fifty years ago and that's because to this day. The USDA maintains an international screw worm barrier. Along the border between Panama and Colombia, the thinnest strip of land, connecting north and South America and every league planes loaded with sterilize squirms fly over this patch of land and release millions of sterilize squirms. And this has been going on for decades. It's the biggest parasite control operation. You've never heard of at least. This is wild. Sarah I am embarrassed to say. I had no idea now I also no idea until twenty sixteen, I started writing about scurrilous.
How Vivian Kaye Turned Her Hair Care Needs into a Multi-Million Dollar Biz
"K. is a fourteen year veteran entrepreneur who has bootstrapped to companies from the ground up for the last seven years. She has strictly focused on the e-commerce world where she built kinky curly Yacky, which offers textured hair extensions for black women to over one million in annual revenue Vivian has been featured on shop. Expert Academy Series Ted Conferences the way we worked and has been featured and digital publications such as Black Enterprise Magazine and refinery twenty nine Vivian, welcomed being boss. Thank you for having made such a pleasure to be here. Vivian! We've gotten to know you a little bit over the past couple of days. You've popped in on some of our sessions. You've been offering us so much guidance and. Radiance and your smarts and all of the things. So now I'm dying to hear your story like, can you, can we? Let's rewind a little bit and we're GonNa. Get into all of the wisdom that you have to share, but I want to know more about your entrepreneurial journey, so tell us like. Where did it begin? How did you get to where you are now being on Ted and refinery twenty nine this morning i saw on your instagram. You're on somebody's vision board like talk about goals. How did you get there? Honestly I really don't know. Because, it's not like being an entrepreneur was a big thing right, so you know back when I was growing up? Being an entrepreneur was for people who didn't have jobs. And so I kept you know I was always in jobs where the one person department one Person Marketing Department and then you know I was at a job one day and decided to start side hustling. So I started out my first business as a side hustle and then while I was running that side. Hustle I got fired for sorry I got laid off. That's the momentum. Laid off from that job, and then at that point I said. You know what let me just let me just go for it. Just go for it and do whatever I need to do. 'cause I'm young I'm free and I can. I can do whatever I want. And while I was running that business I started running, and then I had started a side hustle with kinky curly Yacky, so it was like I had businesses running at the same time so it wasn't something that I set out to do, but with both businesses I set out to solve my problem. And at the time I didn't realize that that was the best way to start a business. But that's what it was I. set out to start to solve my own problem or to solve a pain point that I saw people were having so so that's how my entrepreneurial journey began. What was the first sight hustle? The first sight has a wedding decorator. So all I would do is go in and decorate people's wedding so instead of being on a an event planner doing you know doing all those little things I focused on one thing and what it was I decided so there's a whole story behind that so I'm one of four girls and I'm the second the number two. So my older one was getting there. My older sister was getting married and she hired a decorator who who sent you decorate the wedding for? Say a thousand dollars right, so she paid her deposit. Everything was good, but two weeks before the wedding she came back and said I need another thousand dollars, but didn't have a reason why. Right so I thought well. Of course, she couldn't have paid for A. She couldn't afford to pay her, so she ended up having to hire different decorator that decorated did a crack tastic job. And so I'm like. Why is it so difficult? Why can't decorators just say that they're going to do X. Y.? And this is what it costs and Bass what they do and keep it simple, so then I thought well. I'm just GONNA I was been into decor and HGTV when TLC used to beat more home decor than reality so I would So I started I decided I wanted to be a wedding decorator I. wanted to create weddings that were simple, but fabulous so I would ask. My bride's like okay, so do you remember the last wedding that you went to? And they would say yes, will do you remember the centerpieces or the decor? Remember. It was pretty I'm like that's what we're going to do. So instead of spending mortgage down payments on decor. Why not create something that is memorable, but affordable and people just remember it was pretty, and that's it so that's what I set out to do. And it was a it was a great success, and this was a business that I started with no prior knowledge like I just figured it out as I was going along. And so I can tell that you're a branding lover at heart because you're like, forget pretty. I want memorable and I think this is going to be a thread that we we've through all of your stories, but before we get to connecting those thoughts. I went to hear more about kinky curly Yucky, so what was? What was the problem that that was solving? And how did well I I'm the worse doing I always do this. I always asked two questions in a row. So question one is more about kinky curly yacky. What problem did that solve? And then I'm really curious to hear a little bit more about how I do think that whenever we have side hustles and day jobs and we're trying on a bunch of different things they all start to. Tie together in some ways like we're always learning lessons from one thing to the next. I'm also really curious to hear. What lessons did you learn from wedding decorating that you're able to take to kinky curly yacky. That's a great question. Okay, so the first question was How can you KEROUAC even started? About problem so the problem was I as I was a wedding decker, and so I'm I. I actually live in Toronto, so it's one of the most Toronto Canada, and it's one of the most diverse cities in the world so I was doing everyone's wedding from you know the Muslims to South Asian to Indian to everyone, everyone's wedding so This is going to be a bit explain if anyone really wants to know the real detailed answer. I could always do that at a later point, but. For Black Women. We have to present. We have to show up in the world in a certain way, which is quote unquote presentable so most a Lotta Times wearing our hair, as it is naturally with kinky curly with kinky hair It's not professional. Why don't go professional? So I wanted something that looks like my hair. But would protect my hair because our hair is not suited to this north. American environment, it's it there's not moisture. It dries out really quickly but anyways I wanted something that looked like my hair and know what asked me where I bought it because I didn't want that whole. Nikki manashe thirty two inches of blonde wig down to my I wanted something that looked presentable. So I searched and searched and searched for something that looks like my hair, and then when I found it I weren't to a meet up. To just like a general networking event, and another black woman came to me and said WHO's your hairdresser? And what is your regimen for keeping your hair like that? And I said girl. This is a wave. And she was like I would buy. And this was in this was in two thousand eleven, so I thought well if she would buy it. And I bought it. There's gotta be at least a dozen. Other women would buy it to now. When I was looking to solve my problem, I saw I saw the gap in the market I. Thought There are no companies just selling kinky hair, but I was already running the successful decor business. I was buying my coach bags. I was going on vacation. I was happy with that, and then I decided then I thought well. You know you know. Weddings have a down sees. It feels like you know what I can't like. Itching the back of my brain, so then I said to myself you know what in the down season of of of Vivian the core I'm going to launch his company and I literally made up the name while I was in the shower like I was like Yankee curly. Jackie, O okay and I bought a domain name, and I launched it in December two thousand twelve, and it immediately took off. Okay so I actually do want to hear the details about the actual hair. You don't mind no worries because okay, so I remember talking to emily in the early days of ALMANAC supply company, which is her business and she was trying to find very specific candle containers to pour her candles into, and we talked about some deep googling like how you just have to search like. Get real good at searching. So how did you well? I guess two questions? Are It was a we've, but it looks natural so I think this goes back to that almost that brandon conversation of like it doesn't have to look quote Unquote Professional. Let's make it memorable like let's just make it bigger. Bigger let's make it more of a statement. which I think is so cool so I guess I have two questions here one. How did you find the natural hair? If there is a gap in the market? How did he find a? We've that had the natural texture and then in that might be getting too much of your secret sauce like you might not have to answer that one, but like how do you? How do you find the materials and then guess my next question is? How did you start to then scale and expound upon that not having any experience in that industry so how? Sold! The key was that I was trying to solve my own problem so What I was doing is I. Would I was doing that deep googling I was in facebook groups I was on hair care black hair care forums. Just you know just. Talking with other people and people of course at that time, a lot of people were sharing okay well. I bought this here I. Bought that there, and so that I would of course make note that, because again at the time I was not looking to start another business I was just looking to solve my own problems, so I wrote. You know I would contact every. Every single factor, every single manufacturer, every single website that said they would do kinky hair, and the once I found the one I was like. Wow, this, actually a pretty decent I would ask them to tweak it a little bit. Just a suit, my needs and they did it and I was like okay and I thought well after the girl confirmed my idea. I decided okay well. Let me see the state. Factory can still do it and I would order the same product under different names and asking to do different things to it, and they would do. So I thought okay. Okay. I'm onto something here. And so that's how that's how I was able to. I guess perfect the product because again. I I like to get high on my own supply, so that's the beauty of the businesses that I M my customer. I know what I'm looking for I know what problems I'm looking to solve I. Know What my pain points would be. And what other black women's pain points would be, and the only person who's able to address that is me. So of course I use that to my advantage You know to tell my brand's story but at the time again I listen, I'm an immigrant. I'm a college dropout and now a single mother. So I had no clue. About all these storytelling and branding mark I had no clue I just thought it was just doing what kind what came naturally to me. So so how I scaled that business well, I think one of the mistakes that a lot of people are making in starting businesses that they don't have an audience for the product that they have and so then what I had done again I inadvertently created an audience by by being on those facebook facebook. Forums a facebook groups that had black hair care forums because I was shining. Just being Vivian online people remembered me. So bad, and the funny thing was what I, when I when the business launched, no one knew it was me I didn't. I wasn't. My face wasn't the base of the brand it was just like here's some products. You guys will love Ed Oh. My Gosh and people bought it, but what happened was. I was facebook group and someone I didn't do. The WHO is on the back end of my website do that. Who has privacy on the back end of my product? Someone in one of the facebook groups created a fake place book profile and posted all my information in those facebook groups. Saying this is the person who owns that brand. So what she meant. To to like to help me to make me fail actually was what turned my like. What is what actually skyrocketed my business? Because once people found out that I was the person behind that brand, they were like well. Shoot I'm going to almost support her because she's this. She's that I remember she's Great. She's awesome, and that's what took off so I realized then that. My brand, my person like why. Is What is going to help me succeed in business. Amen I. Resonate so much with what you're saying and. I have branding agency as well and really focus on personal branding and I i. feel like one a lot of people always tell you you need to identify your customer and what they need, but I always think it really does start with you if you can start with what you need you like, you can trust that. We're not all that different and that if you can just get specific about yourself, you're going to be getting specific about your dream customer. Customer so we are so aligned there and then the fact that I mean it was an unfortunate, and you know really inappropriate way to learn the power of personal branding, but you did learn the power of personal branding, so that is incredibly exciting and I. WE'RE GONNA dig into more about like how you leverage that and who you are, and what you do, and how you bring it into your business and draw boundaries and all of the things but. We do have an attendee question that I. Want to slide in here if we may. I'm in this question is from. Death and I think especially for creatives. Who is you know most of our crowd here then we add like to hear your. Hear your thoughts on this, so here's your question. so Vivienne said she had the hair problem herself and chose to solve it, but what kept her on that path instead of ending up as an all purpose, beauty, Guru or similar. To be honest. Hair is not my jam. So really what I? How I think of it is just the ends to a means way or means to an end it's the means to an end, so my real goal is to give black women confidence to show up as they are in the world. So hair just so happens to be the the means to that end. So how I just stick to hair you know I'm pretty. I'm pretty good at focusing on the one thing like it's what I've learned is You know niche of and that's my I will preach about I say niche, but its niche. You know it's either. We can use them interchangeably potato potato. Okay, so with me I. Find that if You speak to a very specific group of people, and you sell them a very specific product. They will be your most loyal fans. They are cheaper to market to they. Are you know more about them? Especially when you already are them so for me that makes it very easy to stick to that one thing because I know that very well and I can speak to it now. Let's just by started venturing into. Say. Make up girl I'll even know how to put on eye shadow right so it wouldn't. It wouldn't. I wouldn't have authentic voice I can't lend that often into city to that product, but what I do know is hair. I'm not a hairdresser. I'm not a hair stylist. Because I had a passion for solving my own problem so that I could show up as quote. Unquote professional in the world. I can solve the I know what looks professional for me. You know I learned you don't like it. That's your problem. Not Mine Right, so we as a black women. What started in two thousand? I want to say. In Two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. Is that Youtube? We started all jumping on youtube and teaching each other how to care for our hair. We stopped putting before. We're used to put chemicals in our hair in order to straighten it to look to fit that European standard of beauty. But then we were like you know what I'm tired of that crap. We're tired of that. We don't want that if that's not Howard. The hair grows out of our heads. You're either going to accept this as we are or not right so so the goal of. Of making black women confident in how they show up in the world is really what keeps me focused on here. There's other people and I and I realized. I'm really good at that, so if I just if you just focus on the one thing that one goal your why. Then you're. You'RE NOT GONNA get distracted by all the Shiny Mirror. The the shiny objects that are floating around, because yeah I could make some easy money doing makeup, but I'm not passionate about that I. don't that doesn't that's not my jam? I love the what you did was instead of doing. The sheds are what people may have expected you to stuck with thing I think oftentimes people in this crowd see either see someone who have sort of diverged from that path, or so. They're thinking okay I. Should I should diversify as well or they sort of get these little inklings of like going to different. Different things I love that what you've done is just focused. You focused on doing the one being amazingly well exactly, and that's and that's the one, if I had to give one piece of advice to anyone is do that one thing and do it really well before you move onto anything else because you know doing that. One thing really really really really really really. Really really really advising that really do that. One thing really well. Guess what you can do anything you can apply that same, so that's what I learned in billions, the core I learned that if I kept it simple and I just focused on providing my brides with this one product and do it really well, it would speak for itself, so I took that same. Simple yet fabulous and I applied it to. Kinky Curly Aki. So people like what can I all? I'm explained the Kinky curly Yacky. What is that, so? It's Kinky kinky hair, and it's curly for curly hair, and then there's Yacky. So? Yuck, so yacky actually is short for Yak, or against the long overreact so back in the day when they wanted to mimic black women's hair straightened. They use hair from Jack the animal. So the industry just put an eye on the end and call the Yacky, so you would know what Jackie was. If you were a black woman, so any block won't be like. Oh! You got that Yacky in and so it's a sort of tongue in cheek, so you would have to be part of that target demographic in order to understand the name of the the name of the brand clear I love that. You're very specific about your dream. Customer to effect. Because I was her I get hot on my own supply. So at some point, did you end up closing the decorating business I did? I closed it I. Shut it down back in two thousand fifteen, and the only reason why I did is because I got practice. More. Yeah so I launched kinky curly. Aki in the summer of two thousand twelve by July of two thousand, thirteen. I was in the business was doing really well at that point? It was I was just doing just under four hundred thousand dollars in sales. and I found out in July I was pregnant. Anti ago. And so you know with my? With wedding core I had brides booked a year out. Right so so I was still doing those weddings, still going to the still going to meetings breastfeeding doing weddings that type of thing. And then I started I wasn't really paying attention to what can carry Aki was doing I didn't know all these numbers until later on because I was doing it just because I just loved it and I was learning about H. Tim Allen Marketing in Seo and I just I just threw myself into it, but wasn't paying attention to the numbers. I just knew it was doing well. But then when I found out, I was pregnant. I was like okay. Okay, the being you got to the chill, you gotta chill. You can't be can't be doing everything and then in two thousand, fourteen march, two, thousand, fourteen I, gave birth to my son and he's been wonderful ever since he's six now. and then I saw what can curly accu was doing I thought. Ma'am really half assing it. What happens if I put my full ass into this? And once I did again. It took off, so so yeah, okay so. I I know that whenever entrepreneurs are listening to this or site hustlers listening to this. They're like wait a second. She accidentally created a half a million dollar business and wasn't even paying attention. So how does that happen? Did was that like word of mouth or referral? Launches You have specific marketing plans. What did that look like for? You had none of that I had was what people knew me from in the facebook groups, and and because I was also also go. Gee of the niche, their niche of just selling kinky hair did not exist before I. Start before I created my company. So because I saw a gap in the market I'm A. I pioneered that so any other company that you now see selling kinky hair is because of me. And so then because I was first to market with that bat just. Exploded because that's women were looking for. I was solving their problem and on top of that I looked like them. Right so it's like they were like girl. You know, 'cause. One of the things would be like girl I was tired of the whole African in the front, an Indian in the back. If you're a black woman, you know what that means, so what that means is we're all from. Black women are from the African for so we had these tight kinky air, and then we are putting on these silk weaves. I didn't blend with our hair. So I was tired of the whole African in the front and Indian in the back, and that resonated with people, so it just and I didn't do I didn't i. Here's another thing I just literally launched with one product. I locked to one product and I only had three lancs. I only had three lengths. I remember at the time, and someone would buy one I would take that money in going by two. And that's how I built. My business I didn't I. Bootstrap I started from zero. I took no outside capital I didn't have any debt I literally started from the bottom. And was it easy. No, no, it wasn't. Is that possible ABSA freaking move?

So I, WanNa talk a little bit about authenticity because you. I feel like that's the core of who you are is being who you are even whenever it's not. By design, you know it just kind of showed up that way. You are your own client and I think that's one of the greatest ways to be authentic when it comes to creating what you do. So. Let's let's talk a little bit about that. Why do you think that autheniticity and being true to yourself and using your own personality is important for anyone who is building a business or a brand? Because people don't necessarily. I think one of the biggest things people need to keep in mind as people aren't necessarily buying the product. As you can see, it's not like I'm the first person to ever sell Kinky, textured hair extensions and back. There were tons of companies that had it, but what they did. is they buried it underneath the silkier texture, so not the first. To Sell Kinky textured hair extensions. But what people don't realize that people aren't necessarily buying the product. They're buying the person or they're buying the emotions. They're buying lifestyles behind the product. So brand is where you can tell that story so branding will help you. To, help you, stand out in the crowd. It will help people remember and especially when you have a story that resonates with someone one. That's what they're buying into. They could care I. Mean Yeah, you could, you could be selling something. That's more expensive and more has a tools unless this unless that, but what they're buying is the person or the idea or the emotions behind. It so I that's what I realized very quickly is especially in the wedding decor. Businesspeople clouds giving. You made me you made it. It feel so simple. You made me feel so comfortable, and you made this process so easy for me and I realized. It doesn't go learn how to do all the fancy. You know all the fancy. Do Decor all I want but that's not what they care about. They care that I made them feel good about the money that they were spending made their wedding. Feel pretty like I made them feel that way. So that's that's really what you should focus on. I love that you said that you're not the first person to sell kinky natural hair extensions, but that it's been buried, and so you took a product unique in on it, and then you highlighted it, and it's beautiful, and you're owning it and you're helping. Other women own it I'm curious, little bit with some of the activism around. Natural Hair California has banned hair discrimination. It's something that I was so excited to see and when it continue to see, are there any levels of like activism or do you think even products like yours have helped? Create that kind of. Activism you know? Do you think that it's like no? This is who we are and this is just as professional as any other hair well I. Think the problem was that we were letting you know black women in general were we were leading the world? Tell us what was beautiful. And you know Youtube and you know the the beauty of the Internet was us being able to see each other people outside of our own communities, and how they look. How many rock their hair and all that jazz so I think really it. It just helped people just be who they wanted just to be who they are like just to be their authentic selves and truth be told, and it does just women in general, because even society tells us. Women were supposed to look like like I'm pretty sure after this quarantine thing has done. There's going to be a lot of people who were blonde. That aren't blonde anymore, right? But you know with black women where we're especially, you know we. Don't want to say Alison to say hated on because of how we look, and so then this i. feel just the way to just listen world we have to teach. We have to teach the world. This is how we are. If they don't like it. That is their problem. Because this is how my hey, this is how the hair grows out of my head naturally. It's curly it goes. It goes to the heavens because that makes me closer to God in the Sun. Right, as so if that's not something you think is professional, I think you really need to reexamine what your idea professional is. Karen sorry. Goes show that Chad. Presentation matters absent. That is what the Internet gave us. It gave us access to each other and to To all kinds of beauty and bodies and ways of being right, and it allowed us to see ourselves and others, and we can't help it, but need permission you know, and that permission sometimes simply in representation I have so many role models where I'm like. Oh, I didn't know I could do that until I saw them do it. And you're providing tools for that awareness as well which I think is like that's an important part of this, too. It's not only having access to the vision of its having access to the tools to, and that's even what you've done. Okay Vivian, you're you just radiate confidence? We all see. We all feel it over these past couple of days, do you? Some of our listeners are indeed here today WanNa know. Do you ever doubt yourself like? Do you ever have what we call being bossed? Friday? Feelings I mean especially going into industries that you didn't have experienced in. Full frequently. Battle with imposture syndrome Prodi feelings all the time. But then. I. Think to myself you know what. If. I don't do what I'm. Put on this earth to do then nobody will. Nobody will be able to do it either, because people who who look like me or even in the same situation as me so I. Guess I'm a single mom. I've been through depression. I've been I've been through all the things that tried me and I came out gold. So if I don't tell that story, I don't tell people how it's done. Then everyone's just this is GonNa be one hell of a boring world so if I. Let that Imposter Syndrome. Eat Me! Eat Away at me. Then that's not that's not fair. It's not fair to anyone. Right, so I shine so that everyone else can shine to. Raise that's like. Your purpose higher than your emotions absolutely. Thinks the. Catholics. Say she's like yes. I, know what with his quarantine? My bow talks has worn off so you can see my reaction. That's right. My eyebrows moving now. I love it. Up Cackling. Right I'd like to bring this to. The branding things, which you've talked a little bit about and the conference, but not everyone has been a part of the conference like listening to this we have. So many more people who have been who have been here with for the past couple of days, so I wanna to talk about this personal branding piece. And if you have any top tips for anyone who's looking to infuse more of their personality into their brand, how can just any old person in by any old person I mean? Everyone is a snowflake How can anyone shine in their business and use themselves as a tool for growth? Or what I want to remind people is you don't need to be me. So you, you know there's. If you think about people like if you think it will jams, right? There's different Jams Jentzsch. Ruby shied differently than a diamond emeralds than that, so you need to be exactly that so be yourself because the minute you start being someone who you're not. It's going to feel like work. It's going to feel You're going to hate it. People will see right through it. So you really don't have any choice, but to be yourself and so sometimes that means you being quirky, or it means you know. Maybe you do more blogging than you do video or whatever the case may be. You just need to show up as yourself. In whatever platform however way you want to do it and the people who it will resonate with. We'll find you. They will find you, so don't be. Please don't be anybody else you don't. That's not what you were. Put on this earth to be to be someone else I just doing yourself a huge disservice by not being yourself. How windy you feel the most yourself Vivian. Like sometimes it's hard to know like what what is me. What should I be sharing? Where do I draw these lines? You know what you know you know where the lines are to be drawn right? You know you know liking. We women. That's one thing I find with specially with women, and there's a lot of things on finding, but anyhow with women we need to trust. Our guts were always second guessing ourselves. We're always doing all these things, but you just need to trust yourself because you know what you know where that line is. You know what you should be sharing what you shouldn't be sharing. Someone there's comanding that unlike very existential questions, which is basically sums it up I'm like, but but even are we but a bundle of sell. What is time? What is personality? What is money. So sorry asked me asking the question again, so I can play it all night, so the question is windy. You feel most yourself like. How do you know what is authentically? You because I think all of us. WanNa show up as we are and who we are. But we can start to second. Guess Ourselves, so you were saying like we. As women need to listen to our guts like we know, it's in our guts. But how do you tune into that like I know like? Let's just say. I remember doing a couple of years ago, I did. I was I was asked to speak at a hair like a beauty hair brand thing and I didn't like it. 'cause hair was not my passionate kid. I could give to kicks about hair, but put me on. Put me in a forum or an opportunity like this. This is where I shine. So I know. You know you know like you know like you know. I'd so, that's the only. Way Can I can explain. We know you know you know. My in I think even what you're explaining is that you know by trying things, and then like listening to yourself right, so you did the hair thing or you went and spoke at the hair thing and you're like this feels gross like, but you wouldn't have known that if you hadn't tried it. I ache, factly eggs, and that's the key to life to. You gotta try. You gotTA. Try GotTA. Try GotTA. Try 'cause. That's the only way you're gonNA. Find out what you. You like and don't like you can apply that to life like you don't know you like Kale until you try it. You don't know you guys that do this until you try it. You have to go through and try a bunch of different things, and then and you know one of the things I started to realize because I'm I'm forty two, so at forty I was like you know what I'm done trying to live in this Fox like I'm done, it's over. I'm Vivian means lively one so Vivian you just need to go about living your best life because. You know all before I was forty at kept trying to be. Everyone kept trying to put me in this box. You know be a box. Go in the box. You know what I. I discovered that I was a parallelogram. Graham is is a sideways buckler rectangle that has. The Google it okay. I was a parallelogram and I was tired of being put into the box, and so once I turned forty. I just flip the bird to everything and said you know what again if you do not like it, I do not care. That is not my problem. You can go kick rocks with an open Tokyo.

How to Leverage Long-Tail Keywords to Supercharge Your Traffic
"Welcome to another episode of marketing. School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel today. We're GONNA talk about how to leverage long tail keywords to supercharge your traffic. So long tail keywords are keywords that are three four five word phrases, not those one or two words, not key words like credit or auto, insurance or cars. Those are all had terms. We're talking about things like cheap auto insurance. That's example of a long tail keyword, and the thing is is like what most people don't realize. Is You already rank for some key words even if you'll get a thousand visitors a month or five hundred visitors? If you actually go to Google search console. See what you're ranking or. And, you take a longer tail variations of that keyword, so even if the term, your ranking for is a forward term like California cheap insurance. You can end up going in finding variations and then rank for five six or seven word terms. Yes, they don't get search as much, but if you're already ranking for terms on, you know, Google added in longer tail variations of that term, even if it's adding additional word or two words at the end and a great way to boost your travel, your one of the biggest things we did with this I mean in the old way of doing this. Is Yes, you gotTA. Do Your keyword research you can use. Uber suggests there's a lot of different tools out there, but when you think about creating your content, one of probably the biggest pain in about is, let's say you hire other writers. They don't necessarily know how to do keyword research. They're not going to want to spend time learning how to use a new SEO tool. What if you train them up on how to do? Do It, you know Neil's got videos on youtube for free I have videos as well and how you can do it. That's an easy way to put long 'til keywords into your content because the beauty we always talk about importance of upgrading your content or maintaining your content so whatever you do that. Let's say you have a piece. That's driving a good amount of traffic. Let's say a couple of thousand visits a month you had. Had a paragraph to it maybe every other month, or so now in that paragraph, it's usually stuff it with a bunch of stuff. That's useless. You got to think about not only am I gonNa do the keyword research for keywords at a relevant to add into it, but also think about how do I continue to make the experience better how to add more value to the piece that I'm upgrading and then you're able to add. Add in these long tail keywords to existing content or even content that you're on new content that you're producing. You're naturally going to pick up more traffic from doing it. A lot of people don't think about the long tail, oftentimes, even today in two thousand and twenty people still think about. Oh, I should be ranking for basketball shoes instead of thinking about Air Jordan, basketball, shoes, or something like that, which is more long tail? Another easy strategy that you can end up. Using is a and this will I like to funny enough actually mentioned the content decay tool today in one of my blog posts, but we like doing is we look at the content that's getting traffic that has been decaying over time, and then we go to those posts. Refresh them up in refreshing boost our traffic, but at the same time we'll do keyword research, or whatever you want us and go find more longer, tha variations and shove him into the article. Shove. Literally mean just plays there. Their a flow hassled. Sound right has make sense has be I informed optimized for the user, not Google, and what will find is not only are we able to get back our traffic that we lost who were able to get back even more traffic than what we had originally before the contest started came. Because we update and make it better, we also added and other term variations of the Iraqi Raines.

But of course, covert and everything else going on. has kind of shifted everyone's everyone's life over the last several months, and so today of injury, prevention or yoga for runner is. We wanted to talk about your for stress, release or stress management. And how you can use different Yoga philosophies whether they're asa like the physical practice. Mindfulness and breath work and all that stuff, right? Absolutely. You've got all the things that will help definitely, if scrutiny of the. Not. Good For, don't forget to don't. Don't hesitate to correct me. Well. Well, but but before we get all that. How's it going here? In North Carolina users still closed by law, so your studio has closed. What have you been up to you? Yeah? The studio has been closed in the physical fence. For almost four months now and Which is a big change? Yoga's very powerful, if ta and practiced together in person but we have gone online to like a like. Most studios have to offer livestream and on-demand classes have done a few outdoor classes. says big change. I think that's the big undercurrent right now for everyone is big changes going on in our lives. On many levels and a lot of uncertainty, and not knowing what. Tomorrow or later today we'll bring sure. Yeah so I think it had talks Matt. Frazier nine talks. I. Don't know a couple months ago about how? We was an episode on how people are pivoting and changing and and how we hope that some of those things stick you know once. Everything opens back up to normal and I was Kinda bragging on how you guys got the on demand like you recorded videos where you have a log in and you go on, and you can look at the library of different classes and. You know. Take any sort of your practice. You want through you. Your Studio House bragging on how you guys did that so quickly. So congratulations on that for sure. And if someone is interested in doing that, where would they were? They learn more about that. They can go to black. Mountain Yoga Dot Com, and we have a whole section there. That describes our online yoga offerings. We have over fifty practices online right now, and we are therapeutic studio, so a lot of our practices, most of our teachings are therapeutic yoga, which go beyond just physical postures into healing, the body mind heart soul. Which is kind of what we're talking about today? It's it's you bet. And heavier abyss nut to leave out. That you've offered a ten percent discount. Yet with Japan, could what? That what it was got it okay. Great awesome all right so. So. Let's talk about Yoga for I. Stress Management, so I think a lot when a lot of people think of Yoga they think of the physical practicing down dog and you know warrior, one and tree pose, and all those like poses that everybody knows and. I'm sure that people do associate that with stress relief or at least. You knows in right 'cause Yoga in kind of big correlation. But. How does that actually impact your? How does the physical practice actually impact? stress management. That's a great question, so we have for many decades when studying stress. Have turned toward the mind. which is very important, but a lot of The. Tools that have been offered have been around the mind, and what is being discovered now as it's being studied more. Is that one of the best ways to release stress in the whole system the mind, the nervous system in the body is through physical movement and that can take many forms some of y'all as runners. No, you go for run and you just feel reset. The stress reduces in your body and your mind, and whatever perspective you had before changes. And Yoga postures are similar and they're specifically designed to do that. Because you're in a posture, you're holding it. Sometimes, it can create a stress response where you're feeling intense feelings. Things are hard your mind saying. Let's get out of this. And you stick with it. Drop into your breath, and you learn how to be in relationship to that stress in a new way where you notice that you observe it. And you stay with it, and until it releases, so you are learning not to be taken over by the stress response, but instead how to notice when it's happening in your body, and then respond to it and I really mindful way.
Do Relationships Have to Be Hard Work?
"Thank you so much for joining us again, Dr Licks. Thank you so much for having me I love being here always a pleasure, always a pleasure to chat with you so I thought that today we could talk a little bit about just this idea that relationships and long term partnerships have to be a lot of work. So this is something that we have heard a lot about recently, but it also feels like historically i. often hear people talk about like Oh my goodness. Marriage and partnership is just so hard and so I just want to hear your thoughts about like why we kinda. Hear that so often. One of my favorite facebook means going around has been I. Don't want my grandma's marriage. Right, I've been doing couples therapy rare for ten years now and sex therapy along with that, and oftentimes I always ask couples who are good models. We're models for positive ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS IN I get most folks saying like I didn't really have a model. They had one aunt or maybe a grandparent, but not a lot of people had models, and we forget that relationships way back in the day. Even though they were built somewhat the same, some monogamous, some had rolling stones, some were practising consensual, non monogamy, and just have the words for it. In they all existed. However, there's just this lack of understanding with one another. And I think that's where it gets passed down where it's. Women specifically told you gotTA. Make sure you have your own. You don't need to be dependent on naturally emotionally would ever stability wise on a man, and then all of the other like local things happen where men are feeling gutted, men are. Get ownership men appealing like they don't have roles in relationship, or they're not necessarily. able to understand how they'd been victims of Patriarchy to, and haven't had access to their own emotions or relationships flourish, so it gets a bad rap. It gets all you gotta do hard work when you get in a relationship, that's not true. I mean there is some work to do right I mean because we're human. But it often sounds like this pain staking. Why would anybody ever WANNA sign up for this? Yes. I agree I think there is some work to do, but I don't think that work is always relationship. Work Right so I tell people have is a therapist. Take care of the relationship between you two. And I don't think people come to relationships fifty to fifty I think you need to come to a relationship, one hundred and Hyundai. And maybe like eighty five day, and that's okay You need to know that like a bay. I'm not one hundred. You know this is what's going on for me. Baby is going to be like I. Bet so what you need for me to support you it one hundred. right in that tower. Relationships play out. That's where the work is coming together. Most people think that they're going to solve. Be Marriage. Conflict in the marriage. And that's not true because there's always going to be something twitchell, right? Something's going to pop whether it's a level wine or a level tain of disaster. Pop, up, it's going to be conflictual, but that's not which zoos and helps marriages bribe hopes. She resolve a little bit faster. Some curious actor when you say your job as the couple's therapist is to. Take care of the relationship and I would imagine that a part of it is eventually helping the couple to learn to take care of the relationship. I WanNa know what does that look like taking care of the relationship as opposed to the two people in the relationship or the however many people right right? For Knowledge Pollyanna Fan of. Yes so when I take care of her relationship. It's not my job to like. You're right you're wrong. You need to do this. You need to do that. which is how people come to arguments right and we have people who hear that little voice with women, but they go past that little voice and keep on going. And! We have people who are. Trying to prove their point, or they're trying to defend themselves from being criticized. Or we have people that just get so overwhelmed down right so they're like. Nope I'm good, and then we have like belligerent foes who are saying if you don't get in the ring to fight with me and I'M GONNA press every trigger that I. Know to make sure you're getting ready to fight with me to show you that you care about me. then. You don't care if we don't have these. Down word based fights, then you don't care because you can just easily walk away and these are the things we've been trained to think for TV through our relationship. And it's not necessarily true right. These are these are actually the horsemen relationships as its aided by Gutmann at. The Inter relationships so taking care relationship saying you all had injury here. Your bond has literally been attacked by both of your behaviors. Are you willing to change that? To support this bond between you two. Are we going to be able to put your pride aside? Right. Because do you want to be right or do you want to be in a relationship Yeah, that question comes up often right. Yeah, and then it's also. What are you going to self sacrifice for goodness? 'cause, it doesn't seem like it's working. Both of you are just very happy.
Tourner Sparkling Brut
"A cheap sparkley line cheap bubbles. She fumbles made in the traditional meth. Shop Watt style of Champagne. And from all the cost six hundred nine. which under a few years ago I would not have. I wouldn't hesitate anyway to bought it. But Not Anymore healers two major ways to make sparkling wines right the process go Cycle style, which is the from at the wine launch and they put into huge. Pressurized tanks and then they had Houston sugar and went out. One again. Here comes. Okay and then they add. Measured! Amount of sugar and yeast. and. As the carbon dioxide gets released from From the fermentation, the pressure is put back into the tank. Into the wind. and that's the nineteenth century technology to get bubbles into wine. and. It works for Seco-. They sell like crazy I like. I like winds. It's pretty damn, cool? Traditional method. Which is Sixteenth Century is where they fermented wine port in the battle. Every bottle gets a little bit of A. Little bit of sugar. And the cap it off and then for the next. On champagne a year and a half. The turn the bottle every two days a quarter turn so the dead use of the stick to the wine. And then neo this you know. One more. Yeah I think they're saying no way. And You, know they still like care. It's probably nine months, and no one says was making this. How how it's made, but that's how the traditional nothing words. And you turn it per. Quarter turn every couple days for months. And then when you have done, you've gotta breeze. The topic is All that uses now basically. And you gotta freeze that you can pull that out, and then you had to add. Some does size which is. Pre made. Pretty much the same. The same bubbly premade bubble you add to fill up and you can change the sweetness. Screener bubbly or he'll dryer just to just to. Go One more time. Yeah Way and Then you have to after you do that, you start. You gotTA. PALEA back backup you. Put the cap back on that and then you. And then you go another few months, maybe even longer just to aged agenda. Get everything. If everything to settle down. It's a huge commitment. To make traditional method sparkling wine. And when you see it for six ninety nine. Like wow, because no one really cares if they're six. Ninety nine sparkling wine is made in the process. Or Champagne Metro other than me. Because you know when on seven bucks got bubbles in it, it tastes nasty. It doesn't matter if it's sixteenth century, technology or Nineteenth Century Technology. It's all good. And this one is surprisingly. I, don't know. Are. But it's got nice flavor. The the acidity is on the. One year ago. Late and On the. On the cantaloupe, the edge of being a latched, but still faust, but not three we noticed. That has any right to complain because it's a six ninety ninety bubbly. What kind of crazy person complains about that so? I just took a SIP. It tastes great. It's six ninety nine traditional method. That all the all these blinds. Leeson all the neighborhood is just a mess. You can't tell what's what's. The. There's three of launders forty seven of another. You you might be sick, chardonnays and nothing else. But if you look and you try to find out what skin there. There's some pretty good stuff in there. I mean I'm shocked to their. Thousand, nine, hundred ninety nine champagne from last year was I. think my favorite wine of twenty nine thousand. It was excellent. Still talking about it, and it's July.
Setting and Understanding Expectation
"Stephen Covey. He called sharpening the saw. Seven Habits of highly effective people right. A read the book. It's a little dry Stephen Dryer to listen to. If you have the audio book part of it, but man is some good stuff in there ready years and years ago in a couple of times cents. If you take a break to sharpen the saw blade. It's pretty simple. You cut more. Would right I guess you could? I guess you could use a knife in the kitchen as well. I guess you could be a woodworker. It's a seraing same thing. But whenever you sharpen the saw, you're going to be much more efficient than what you do. The same thing applies pretty much every aspect of life now a very long time ago when it began to working with people like we're talking. Twenty years ago, this point longtime ago. I realized. A formula is a good thing, and certainly formula for momentum is a good thing, and there is a very predictable repeatable path that I learned over the. That just has to happen, and it has a lot to do with your physiology. In other words, your body can only take so much focus and activity the whole thing. Your mind can only hold so much in terms of momentum. Houma got him excited and then one day like I. Don't WanNa. Get Right. Had that happened before? It's pretty predictable because we're humans and were made up in a certain way. And eventually we just gotTa wear out. That's why we. Kinda sleeping on a Saturday or Sunday morning sometimes, so my formula years ago became. Ritual rest. Rejuvenate Reactivate and repeat. I called it a five hours I. don't call the virus much anymore because we will say five hours that, but to me. It's five hours ritual rest reactivate. Rejuvenation. Reactivate and repeat. What do I mean by that number? One success comes when you perform ritualistic actions every single day. Good stuff right things that are going to move you in the talking about my my client. It was trying to get US credit to go up, and he just basically had to pay his bills on time ritualistically, if not every day once a week have had a B, but every single day you got to figure out what works and ritualistically go do it. Don't keep trying to reinvent the wheel. Figure out what works lock it in place and go do it. You will build over time kind of layer upon layer upon layer of ritual activities that are good for you. Most people when they start out, just not recognizing the activities are actually really positive for them and the dwelling on the ones that are bad for them. We'll just don't do that. Just find this good and go do that every single day. Now next. Running full out all the time is something that is not really sustainable. You need to stop and rest I know you're a superhero. You can go go go go go, but you know. What have you ever noticed that? Even though you're going, you're not completely totally in the game. Is Kinda get tired emotionally. We're a little bit, so it's not really sustainable. One of the biggest things when I'm chatting with people all the time they're go, go go go go Scott I'd stay up later. Get up earlier. I said Yeah. How long can you do that? It's unsustainable so once we get the ritual activities every single day. We need to focus in on some rest. The rest could be you know asleep. Good night it can be taken weekends off could be an occasional vacation or are more than occasional lots of vacations if you're really thinking, right. But you have to stop and breast and I know it's difficult, sometimes particular time to stress out a heck to arrest right now when I got to get stuff done. I don't even know it's going to be happening. But ritualistic behavior day by day by day, and then taken the time to rest, because you need it and you human, and it feels good and other people can like Murphy do. It's a good thing. You gotTA start. From rest. What's next. Well As your body to do something and your mind by the way in a big way to rejuvenate and become healthy again. It just like working out at the gym. People go to the gym and they don't WanNa. Take a day off the bit by the gym bug. You're going to go, go, go, go, go and I get it right now, right? They're not. Everybody's GONNA JAM and we're not back yet either, but maybe maybe soon get that comfort zone to go back to the gym and get our workouts in. But, what happens is you start working out like crazy new? Push it. Push it. Push it pushing pushing. which don't realize, is it's that rest time when you stop when you sleep when you just take a break when you take a day off, your body rejuvenates when you go to sleep at night, your body on. You're GONNA rest mode. Your body's rejuvenating your everything about it. and. You need to give it time to do that, so we know ritualistically every single day as the example we go to the gym four days a week, right? there. We're going to make sure we get time to rest. Because during that time we begin to rejuvenate, you have to allow rejuvenation time. If you don't. If you get rest and yet, maybe you're. You're fitfully sleeping, you're you're not eating right things like that and your body's not rejuvenating. You're kind of missing part of the part of the formula here. You gotTA. Make sure you rejuvenate during those times maybe. It's resting and going to a SPA or something. Spicy stays right so does not know the rules a spas right now. But they must have them. What's ex reactivate when you're ready? It's time to get into reactive action mode again I want to me that you reactivate yourself, so have you ever felt this feeling? I feel it all the time you get tired. It's time to take a break I've been going I've had my rich realistic activities have taken. My rest of my body feels like it's really absorbed the time been. It's rejuvenated a little. Little bit and just start getting like I got to get going I gotta think if you don't have that feeling likely. You haven't really really rejuvenated yet, but if you've ever felt I know, you have felt it yesterday. Maybe today or think back in time when you were just like you know what enough of this I need to get back to doing. Some feel that that's what you want.
Carolyn Goodwin - Marketing Manager at Barn
"In a nutshell. What Is Barn? Well Barn is a is a community. It's basically it's an artisan community formed of artisans from all different disciplines who have come together and initially worked to create this space and now work to. Invite people into it to learn and make things now. You have a number of primary studios. Here I. Believe Ten. What are those. Well, we have everything from electronic and technical arts where we have three D. printers and laser cutters and laser editors and a lot of people who know what to do with them. and we also have fiber arts where we do weaving and knitting and sewing. Glass Arts where they do Stained glass and mosaics and Fused glass we've jewelry and fine metals where we do all different aspects of jewelry, making from the Lapidary or stone cutting work to the working with to gold and silver and other metals We have a kitchen arts. We have a commercial kitchen here, so we have a group of people who put on classes on on kick cooking, all different kinds of cooking from all over the world we have print and book arts where we have a professional quality, prince, making equipment, and also teach bookbinding and book arts. And we have a writers group where we can teach people both the craft, and the business of writing and then finally last, but not least we have. The the woodworking studio which is has been incredibly popular and and is just always full of people making things whether woodworking studio is what brought me here, initially It's kind of my thing, but I've been so impressed with the you guys offer is is just amazing now. How did this place come about? Well it. Ta started in about two thousand twelve where. Initially. It was a woodworker who had an idea to that he'd seen a community woodshop shop in Arizona think and thought wow, that would be a great thing to have on Bainbridge island. And you know he worked on it. And then was looking around for a existing space on the island to do that in and in the process, other people kind of started thinking well. What if we did that, but we also added a print studio, and maybe we did that and had a jewelry studio, and the more the more people that. kind of joined in the more traction that idea got and eventually. It morphed from looking for a space that existed that we could put this into to. You know if we're GONNA do this right. We just need to build the space from scratch and so. So that's where it went and it actually all kind of came in the idea gelled in a famous. Band tour there were a group of about. eight or ten people that were in a van on a trip to go look at another artists space in the area and on that trip the whole thing came together. It was kind of like well, you know. Let's just build it and they came up with the name you know. Let's call it barn and they came up with You know really the whole this I. Guess I. Unfortunately I wasn't on that trip, but apparently it was just incredibly exciting time for where where everything just kind of gelled and from there. We we went into the. The Next phase which is building the building. Yeah and I mean it's it. There's a big step between this would be really cool to actually breaking ground, and and it's just everybody I've talked to this whole. I don't know if I. DO SHOULD I call it an institute or just a this Space Barn? was seems to be such a Labor of love. You know everybody's passionate about what they're doing. It met a lot of the other instructors or the studios yet, and but it's all. It looks like you're doing it right well, it. It's It's brought together just an incredible group of people from the very beginning, it was the initial group. We started in a little, tiny, twenty, five hundred square foot, building up on the other end of the island and. Everybody was piled on top of each other, and there was a crammed into every little nook and corner in the space, and and it was just a crazy small space, but it. It was a place where. The you know, the people started coming and the ideas started flowing, and we figured out how the whole thing was going to work and started practicing, I guess, and because from there we grew to this twenty five thousand square foot building, so you know a tenfold increase and just. A huge explosion in the number of people and classes, and so it was great to have that tiny little space to to figure it all

An Omer sorta wasted no time bearing the lead as it were It's been a minute since we've actually been on this show. We had a little bit of a hiatus. as I imagine most of. Most content providers out there just trying to sort of make the most of these sort of. Challenging Times of trying to secure people in trying to find the time in the space to record, so we are really excited and and especially grateful that ma'am. Louis was able to take the time out of his demanding busy schedule to be with us on, so thank you again as an I. Echo, everything, immerse, said not growing up in a small town so much, but you were also sort of NBA hero of mine. I came of age in the nineties when I came of age I.

And because she saw something in me when I was playing I win in. Playing Street Ball I didn't know anything about organized while I. Mean I'm taking it driven through people and I'm making my shots. Coach added me listed son. You, gotTa pass the ball. And make a long story short. My first game in elementary school I remember. This guy named Aaron Ross. I'm nervous. Right man would i. do you follow me? By the end of the game. Of the game coach was giving me ISOS telling him get out my way. I ended up with twenty one points, my first game, and just to see the crowd, and the excitement man I was like man I love this atmosphere. is feels especially a little. You a black kid coming out of the ghetto. You know, mother you. Know File Right A. Grown up in poverty surrounded by drug addiction, mother had an eighth grade education. So you're looking at something, and you get this attention from a skill that you have. And now it's dawning on you the May. This could be something. Right. This could be a way out and so that was like really for me the beginning. That moment when they were screaming and yelling. And it wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't like pure. Not like. Your College College Teammate Shaquille. It wasn't like you were this massive. You know massive Guy Hulking Guy. You're probably based. There probably saw your quickness in your your agility new shooting right that that they that they liked yeah. I was I was born with. Vast which muscles being quick and explosive, but until you meant after that moment. I began to wake up. My regimen was four o'clock in the morning. Then I would wake up at five and for years. My Mother did know this was happening. Because I'm not about down a mother her to cut it off. Work to I mean at. And so I would wait until she left I. Heard the call. Crank the not get up. Get myself written. It's still dark outset at the attack. And I decided at that age of of Nanan Jianye said man. This is what I want to become. Be The best. and. I knew that I'd have to come up with a strategy because I'm small to give myself the best opportunity to do that something. What can you do that? Nobody else or not, too. Many people don't dawn at this aid. And I, just decided man. You GotTa Get Earth.

He was not bad but I do remember this. In two thousand edited interview with Tyler quietly and he made the best point about why the forty bars and everything made people so uncomfortable.

"The charge would not allow black man to be clergy and so they went to the coach to talk about a protest and kicked all of them off the team. Just for walking in the door to talk about it right. They didn't come. They ain't even get the chance to embarrass them in front of nobody they just brought it up right and they toss them all off and so a one level. I think we look at this and say you know these cats flex their power. They can throw all Nevada here but it's kind of like fit on like if I parked illegally in his. Everybody else do it. They can't tell all our cars trucks will happen to them. They went to other programs in recently. Wyoming is tried to do some measure reconciliation. But they won't go so far as to apologize in you know taking black because how else we all going to be any good at football y'all in Wyoming right off off the beaten path places. They always were about that diversity. Yeah come on over here to the middle of nowhere you know show up we got you and so I wonder like how hard is the power structure willing to go on. Somebody's mad as to where they'd put everybody out because it feels like you can't do that in the money is to Straw. But we don't see people said money on fire forever in the name racist. Oh Yeah Oh yeah in a second and a second I mean I would argue. There's probably some financial incentive for bringing cap back actually long term. You know what I mean like. I would argue like there's something in you could. You could make some sort of financial case for that. Will maybe. It'd be hard this year but you know what I mean. Two years down the road. You know what I like. You certainly can make that case especially for somebody really needed a quarterback you know But and if anything VIC shows how quickly why people forget things when folks winning you know what I mean like how like football even in that case even as much as they loved it dogs me as much as they love their dogs once. They've got that started winning. You know too much about dogs. No more don't ask. That was the study. 'cause I was stunned when they signed him. That people were still so mad because I thought they got over it and then I remember. Kevin Cobb started that one game. He got her V. Came in and you could tell Eddie read. It always wanted to do. He was good enough for me. New Starter that guy right there. That had a Yeah he's crazy. I sent Donovan mcnabb packing for Kevin. Cobb are you. Hi that Guy Right there come on over and you write. Everything was cool because then they were winning. And that's what I always said about cabinets people compartmentalize in a very interesting way that Colorado up on a team and was able to make a little something happened on twin. It go out the window here. Bet on the titans. This year he'd been on the forty niners four. They would've won the super bowl. Yeah it'd be very very very different conversation very very different conversation. Perhaps folks know that if he had been on a team that won the Super Bowl. Disneyworld is not asking him to say. He's on the way absolutely not imagine collar on that float with a black leather jacket fist. Up Ride down past the badging. Do No it's crazy. It's crazy this is. This is a very interesting time to be watching these dudes and to you know be dealing with the ethical issue of whether I should be watching it in the first place you know what I mean and what that means and what what we're supporting and yet you know what I mean. This is this. Feels like a really really revolutionary. You know moment For this forgiven the centrality of football pro football to to American life. You know What do they do? We have three four black quarterbacks in the playoffs we had a shot and all black super bowl for a while there. I think we had six anyway. It was very high and I was afraid that it was going to take out like the Democratic primary. Thank yeah you know you look up right Jimmy Garoppolo right right right right right down. A suitable ball is big and to me. You are from Baltimore and like I wanted this like if you were kid in Baltimore right now and the more Jackson emerges is there any other store in your orbit? No absolutely not actually does the sucked for forever Since I was in high school We had a brief ninety. I guess absolutely not I mean it it. It is an incredible incredible thing and especially for town. You know what I mean where the Colt having laugh and avoid that. That laugh and then. It's wow how ravens leave. They leave. Cleveland you gotta be come to immediately become a winning franchise. Yeah well I thought about that. Those is horrible. I think maybe like a gotTa be within five years leaving Cleveland Lewis John Ogden immediately after they left they drafted those dudes Ozzy draft the first draft in Baltimore two hall of Famers First Round where Israel first round first round. Boy that's cool. I thought about that but I remember like when I saw the mar and look somebody along. The way made the decision where we watch cam not camphor this in fact I probably would encourage some of the same. We WATCH PEOPLE NEED. Limo Polish right. Like if you're going to be the front of this franchise in this way and all of us get a little more policy as we go along the way no matter who you are like. I don't think that ideas necessarily offensive. But we're Lamar. They may be telling him to get some Polish autumn. But take your time because I love him for that Speak Speak. I respect it like in some ways. I'm like your public. You could probably improve right even if you speak how you speak. Because he's new but now the ravens have been like now. Whatever you gone up here. We understand what he said. And that's always by by the way you understood what I was talking about. Why we what are we doing? What do we do not understand? What did he say you know what I mean? You know? Long as he can understand it when he called him audibles okay. We'll go to the end. I'm like it's all good while it's all good now to be fair good but at pilots wouldn't save. We've gone bad anyway. Dak Prescott getting out here starts stinking. Ain't nobody going to be firms in Angola matter but part of that is he just associating How you talk with Intelligentsia which is you know always and forever incorrect and wrong and nobody you know anybody should know more about this than southern. White folks. You know what I mean. Yes but of course. That's Kinda normalized. In a way that you know how stuff is not so yeah but but also also wondered part of that has to be endearing the Baltimore because everybody trying to trip how y'all talk and I'm not even being funny like Oh. Yeah there's a video out there with like accent doing a Baltimore Act. I can't remember what the sense but they make them say a sentence and they try to get them. I guess to pronounce it the way it's supposed to be the my wife always like with the he said. I was like all right the city exactly what he says. I do something what I earned. I'M GONNA say it denying earn. Which is I guess. In America is Aaron burned an iron earn? I didn't know that there was a Baltimore exit until I got to college and I was like. I didn't know that you had to find out that the rest of us did talk like that bad. Oh man no. I didn't know I didn't know but Nah no you know we. We kinda used to that. You know what I mean and and other things like there's a whiteboard accident ain't the black lorrimore accent. You know what I mean. You couldn't do that with a white dude from bald. They've got their own accident. Which is different you know but like I got to college. My roommate was from Philly in that is a whole world like phillies like Oakland. East Jato News. Any words that anybody else uses does not travel across city. Line state lines anywhere else. Yana though only people who talk like this. I'm like Oh board from Tina. I grew up in Texas. I'm like bowls show the Bulls. Okay Gotcha I guess I get into here now. I have no idea like in the college for me was just a whole lot of like. I listen to a lot of rap. I thought I knew how people talk. I did not not at all event. What else you got going these days man so Trying to figure that out man I published a novel came on. Our dancer came out. You know Last year you know. We're lucky to do you know reasonably well and trying to figure out just trying to try and trying to figure out man. I you know it's like you know having been at the Atlantic for all those those years it was like it was always clear what was knacks and now you know. It's not always you know so office. Harthill view to do I. Yeah no that's true. That's exact fact. That's exactly it? That's exactly exactly. Yeah I mean I. I will always continue to write books. That's definitely gonNA happen. I just really enjoy that that practice but you know it's like Every time you do a different book it really is a different book. You know And you've got to figure out how to write it and you know I. I really really enjoyed that. So you know. Probably look at something you know in that range. One of the most admirable things badge and I thought about it with all this. Kobe stuff was like Kobe. Had this outright. Lack of fear of failure is the cloud. Kobe for the idea that he was trying to wrap but I read this story. That was like Kobe battle. Anybody Cobos Battling dudes in hotel lobbies just for saying that he could not rap and he just didn't care if he didn't go well like you're always looking for something else that provides the challenge rather than stay in as something that you demonstrated that you can do. And that's just wildly impressive to me. Yeah no man I think it has to do with your self esteem is though like My Self Esteem for the most part I mean it goes back to where we started this conversation with like. When do you get on it? And if you get on in your thirties a lot of times you have to build yourself up as a person and an identity separate from what your career is. Your vocation is made. That's not going so well. Why didn't go. I mean book. I was unemployment when I was thirty. Two you know what I'm saying so I had to develop some sort of sense of who I was in other places and believe it or not while my writing is really really really important to me. it's probably not at the core. You know what I mean. It's probably you know. Probably my kid is at the call. My wife had to call my mom and dad and my brothers and sisters. You know my friends like that. That is you know like when you want unemployment you better have other qualities that people around you value for right you know what I mean so. Hey I'm a good friend. I got you know what I mean like. You have to figure out other things. People value good friends they actually do people value family members. You know what I mean who Who was alad and that sort of thing and so with all this other stuff started happening. It was like what is going on. You know so I you know I i. if it goes it goes bad. I don't want to go back. You know but thrill of trying something new to this. You know you know Trying to make this shift over to fix it you know With significant and in many ways you know But I think you'll get it's like you're always just trying to tell the story that that part you know what I mean never never leave you know but the thing I gotta she was was Kobe. Any good y'all rapper was good wasn't bad. That will probably be the best way to put it but you know it was wild. I'm evaluating that. According to what the game was in nineteen ninety six I feel like if I go back and listen to some of that stuff now. I might be like Yo Kobe bars. Don't because like would it mean what it means to have bars..

"Do you feel like this. Generation of black quarterbacks More conscious and more aware like of their relationship to the NFL and that this will not always be a party again. I keep I just happened to watch Sean thing before we got on and he was like one thing that he said you know. He's talking about his financial stuff and how He really uses a catastrophic injury away like he was clearly aware that that's a great question right because also think we're dealing with some interesting class and race stuff within the black quarterbacks right so this year top five offenses in the League. All black quarterbacks. It wasn't the Texas don't like like he's out of his window. But Patrick mahomes live the different life. The Russell Wilson lived a different life than Lamar Jackson were. The Mar- Jackson's life is much different than all these guys right and so we get into both know. Sandy dared his skin shade. Research is some of the best stuff that anybody's gotta go and people don't realize how much of an effect that has like Russell Wilson half of America Things Russell Wilson has white parent in kind of treats him as such in that way. Patrick Mahomes Biracial. Russell Wilson's Biracial. They do Patrick. Mahomes is biracial. Dak Prescott is bi racial and by the way I have to bring it up with these cats because we're Prescott for example in Dallas. People have talked about this. The idea that him being biracial allows him to talk to both sides of the locker room. They say that Yup which by the way on in the world is a tacit acknowledgement of the segregation of NFL. Locker rooms right. Yeah but to that style. These things matter in that way. And I remember seeing interviewer Prescott wants and Prescott was like. Yeah you know is helps me because I used to hang out with my white side of my family? You know their teachers the stuff and I go hang out with the black side of the family and they sell drugs and it was like. Oh No oh no but I could be wrong here but I feel like a dude who's inclined to say something like that is a dude who probably thinks it's all going to be gravy forever and that you know. I'm being treated like the other quarterbacks are but I don't know what's going to have any issue with him with the position he took you know in terms of cabinet with like look Don't ever take alphabet houses. Don't ever do that as you just gotTa agree with cats. You Ain't got to do nothing but don't defend them. Don't ever defend though you know what I mean because they will put you out in a second everything and nothing of it. I imagine it can be a little confusing. Because I think football especially builds a kind of fraternal feeling. You know especially when things are going great and I don't even mean just between the players I mean you know with the coaches with the owners. You know what I mean. They you know owners talk about it. There's a family eight things like that And then when it comes You know Look Salary Cap. Look whatever they're very clear about it being a business you know And I I worry you know what I mean when I hear something like that. The folks not as savvy as they should be while it's all good. It's all good but the test is what happens when you slip just a little bit. You Ain't even got a slip. A lot is when you slip just a little bit. And that's what I don't know if these young cats believe because also import like I don't feel Patrick. Mahomes is living with the for lack of a better term stigma of being a black quarterback Russell. Wilson has in part because he won so much young but also I think in part because of how he presents right. He's not being treated like Cam. Newton was treated for example. And they're not being treated like Lamar Jackson was being treated and Lamar who I would imagine knows. Exactly what's going on here right? I worry about him because if he comes out next year like Peyton manning and his third or fourth year was bad right. This happens with quarterbacks at this point in their careers if he comes out and has not great season I am so fearful of what the reaction is going to be because there's so many people who ultimately want to be proven correct and the only way they can is through his failure and look. This happened even to Robert Griffin. Who has did more to bend over backwards to please people in that way then anybody? I remember right. That's a tragedy that was attracted me right there. Man that that really really wasn't tragedy. I mean so like the question I gotta ask though is like. Do you feel like if this was twenty thirty years ago. Do you think like Russell and Patrick Mahomes? Do you think they would? They would be under the stigma then probably has. It has have certain things just shifted because like the line is shifted a little. I think so. I think if you go back like I say. I don't have the same recollection of what it was for Randall. Right but I mean thirty years ago. We're talking about being in that era. I think about the early nineties. How few black quarterbacks even like passed through the doors to get a chance to be the dude that we talked about like? It took a while like this if you remember. This is like the second or third black quarterback renaissance right. We have one in the late nineties. We had one in the middle of the two thousand and then we had this one stands out about this. Is I want to say last year. They were eight. Starting Black quarterbacks overall out of the thirty two teams and with the exception of one or two at Tampa Bay in Indianapolis. Everybody else was bald. And like it's spelled out the fact that. Oh we have some black quarterbacks if y'all out here ball and they ain't about to be no version of the black nick foles hanging around here being sorry and getting fifty million dollars. Black Nick foles. Don't not going down equal. That's what we know that's not equal and there's a black nick foles every day right like that that part. We're not getting too but I wonder if they would you? I brought up like how aware these cats are because like I know myself personally up until I was about twenty five like I grew up. I grew up going to school in a small town in Texas with a bunch of white people who I would say overwhelmingly treated me. Well like I was quite the optimist about these things until Katrina came and I watched the news coverage of Katrina and I was like. Oh Okay my bad you right dead. I misunderstood like what you had conscious. Parents Family Yeah but as but I thought everything was cool. I thought that things were better than they were. And I feel like when you're young and you're successful in everything's breaking your way even if you don't think the world has changed you think you so special that the world angle come get you and they go come get them all at some point the world is going to get them all like Patrick Mahomes. How many touchdowns? He got to throw where he can have. A bad season and people won't be ready to throw them out. Because I've seen a black quarterback even though even though he's not getting that stigma right now it can happen and its way around the corner ever outperformed raises. Do Galaxy could outperform raises. Right nobody's ever been so good that it never came up. Yeah and I hope they know that no I hope so too I really I just. I just hope that ready. I hope folks Actually because there's a lot of celebration right now you know what I mean and it is a and you know but the thing would act you has something positive change though like like like the presence of these cats in the first place with these different things are better like they're eight black quarterbacks in the NFL. And I don't want to get to a point where like the Malcolm X. You know you pull the night six inches out and call the progress right. Don't be that guy but yo man. There are eight black quarterbacks in the league. And here's what's about to happen. I've talked about this on here before. But this this is my blow your mind a little bit in the League right now. There is not an excellent white quarterback who was drafted after two thousand nine because Andrew Luck is out of the League. Now none of the white quarterbacks who went in the first round of the last decade are really any good trubisky yup and you get like Derek Carr in the second round and Jimmy Garoppolo. You get a few guys that come lower but college. Ranks are not producing the great white quarterbacks that they did and they've been selling quarterbacks in this league for so long drew brees Peyton Manning. And Eli Manning Tom Brady Ben Rothlisberger in spite of being Ben Rothlisberger. Like these white quarterbacks have been the fate is the reason why we don't call the NFL. A black Li we'll be call the NBA Blackley. 'cause we got these white dudes out front. I don't know what's going to happen here. But now that the spread offenses have come in and reads simplified which means that your biases against black people. Because they go they too stupid to read a defence when Irena defense is easier than ever so your your story that you tell doesn't even hold up anymore and you might look at look around and see. This league has sixty seventy percent black quarterbacks and I don't know if anybody's fully ready for that yet I would change a lot. I mean. Would you try to imagine like with the Labor Relations are in that situation being? Nfl what it is to own a ship actually is how it's marketed to America. I mean that and then I have to You know what I would hope would happen and I have. I have to believe this would happen because it took a while but it have any NBA. Eventually these cats realize their power. I would say you know. Lebron's Generation Day undestood. Some things. Not because they you know maybe necessarily but I mean each generation builds on the life but they understand some things maybe buckling Jordan's generation. Didn't quite you know right? So at that point we'll folks start to understand that power like what that actually means that they can you know. Will they actually be able to make some demands? Well FOR INSTANCE FOR INSTANCE. A cabinet protests. That happens in that time. Does it go different because it go different? And how like? How hard would owners be willing to go? And by the way. Shout out the gate. He pointed out. Carson Wentz. That's probably the best of the white news from that decade to come out but escapes is but that's one L. oil. That is correct. That is that is simply one. But like the thing I've always wondered about those protests and things Are you familiar with the story? About the dudes at the University of Wyoming in the late sixties Lacey's disagree but go through a vaguely off campus here so basically they wanted to do a protest before the game against Byu because Byu will not allow black people to be clergy the LDS Church Now Byu..

"Bayside forgiveness. It would have been nice but you know the flip of that is. I mean probably didn't have the social capital at that point to say kick this dude the world because they would have bought up the dog dog. Y'All but I do remember this early. He was like yellow. Forgive him and we go do this a few days later. Big Was a cap like yogurt. I've done all these. These catch trotter. Here I've said all I have to say it was just like I don't know what to do. I'm trying to try to bridge the gap of try to bring these people together. But like Cooper stadium had a good year that year and I'll just always remember like decide Jackson catch a touchdown. Riley Cooper tried to give him a high five saw Jackson keep already like a radical got it existed played. Woodward Year has not been seen since they tease like Nevada. We have now. That's what happened. Wow like he went to Tony Dungy. Who was kind of like football? Iota and Amanda White People Trust is largely because of things surrounding his faith. Which for what it's worth. I think it's important to know gives Tony Dungy some political allegiances that can probably get him into rooms with people that might not let the average black coat super bowl to not get into those rooms right and so he had to write COSI Christian pieces he. What is he is he? A Republican would've won. It's it's its fundamentalist Christian and the things that often come with that right right got it but he but he you know he had the guy that was able to do that and then he came out involved bald. Like I wonder how this goes if it comes out of jail and just like a regular quarterback how this works as opposed to coming out of jail in that twenty ten year Bolland. Yeah yeah yeah well also I mean I mean. Eighty was in financial trouble. So I mean you gotta you gotTa situation there you know so it. Was you know he had to be able to handle that? But it definitely complicates I just I mean and and I think like we go pass. This allows watching. I was watching this thing on the Sean. And there's that moment Earlier this year with somebody is like questioning to sean about some pass or something. He basically breaks down the entire play right and the semi the labor. These guys have to. Do you know what I mean like this year amount of work and so to come out of prison. Get your body right that to get your mind right. You know what I mean. Um Run that offense and to to do I mean it's it's tremendous and and we just sort of like we say were they work hard. They were caught. And and you Kinda like skip. Pass it on. I mean but I I thought that was one of the things you know it clarified. I mean I coulda you know. Us actually a little bit more about that. Because I'm I'm I'm interested. I was very interested in how you have to be different in order to actually be successful. You know you're not quite as fast fast. Not Quite as used to be so you clearly have to know things in a different kind of way. Then you did you know what I mean. Yeah and I thought it was interesting talking about him working with the trainer when he got out of jail. Because that's probably the hardest ever had to work in his life right like I know what is life for me when I got to graduate school and I realized for the first time. Oh so you're telling me that the other smart people work hard to. Oh my bad. I thought we were just demonstrating how smart we were in. That was enough and it's also now. I have to work hard and that almost brought me vic I can imagine when he's up there doing them cone drills and everything else coming out of jail he was like. I'm not fast anymore like I. I bet that was jarring to immediately. Try to cope with remember how old he was when he came out. He is my age so he was twenty eight twenty nine. Okay okay so just maybe just about You know start to dip a little bit. But he hasn't been working out. You know what I mean. He hasn't really been doing what he was. You know yes. Maybe he's working on a little bit but certainly not. Nfl level in prison for his off ain't no training stable in Leavenworth ain't no training taper off nowhere doing pushups.

"Gotta be real like part of it. Was it put some other ethical conversations like the one corners does and taxi by. There's one call and says he says well. What about horse racing? You know what I mean which is brutal sports British board. You know what I mean but the thing I think about is. Why IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN FACTORY? Farming like it's not. It's not really clear to me. You know what I mean. I don't just mean straight up. You know meat meat consumption but given what happens in factories and it don't have to happen that way like it's not like it's a thing I went through. Okay what would with dogfighting? There's an element of torture. You know what I mean for pleasure. So that's all well. In fact he farm in fact act is an element of torturing four pleasure. You know what I mean you can have. That pop is saying we can have that you know that nothing against the seventy not trying to call it out but in general decided Colorado. It's fine. It's fine. It's like the other thing that came down to me was just like how much of this is about. Power like how much it is about. What kind of cruelty embracing what kind that you don't you know you're in the affection for dogs right and the affection that people have for dogs and I think the roles that like dogs play in people's lives and they see them as their general protectors and all of these things like this is like. This is the one they have been out there fighting roosters which is a thing in other places. We're probably not having this discussion. I think anybody would have to be honest. What we're talking about here is not strictly a matter of principle. That's why some of the things that people say after the fact get me about big lakes over one and you know what he did with. Data is wrong. There's no way around that right but I hear people say well you know people who torture animals they how many of them eventually become serial killers. Show me to trail of bodies right. That's like the people say marijuana is a gateway drug show me Willie Nelson on heroin like by now this would have manifested itself as he came up but I did not know when I tell people I had no idea that people had these attitudes about dogs and dog fighting until didn't know I gotta say I mean look. It's not something I would have done. But like he's talking about like you know like dogs outside and all of that. I remember that we had a stray dogs running neighbor like I remember that you know what I mean like. That was a a not to foreign thing. I I wouldn't have been into it because I'm not. You know into that sort of thing but the notion that like We never occurred to me that you go to jail like that for emptive. That never would've that was not something. I would have been aware of and I gotTa say while on one level it due to deal with the effects and people have for dogs. I mean you gotta say it also has to deal with how people feel about you know black men and how they felt about that particular black man. You don't do executed executed. I mean even at one point two Peter do says listen. Let's be real. This was pay matter with us. We know that I wonder if pita 'cause pita stuff would races always weird because they do so much stuff too like they. They compare the struggle of marginalized people in this country. The struggle of animals in a way that black label kneeling something recently. It was all the animals they had. They had a salmon meal fish right with the national anthem plan. And it's just like Yo man. What are you doing right now? Like how does this go? And as I've made his point on a different podcasts where I was like a lot of black people believe that the animal rights movement sees these animals is being more valuable then black people are and they bristle at it and they resisted and I totally get it but when you saw those clips of those people being like Michael Vick needs to be hung and it was like Whoa Whoa. Don't you think we're skipping some steps? Buddy wow wow wow yeah yeah yeah so. I know I mean I I laugh just Really impressed with him. Because I just think to go through that and I'm going to be real about this. This shadow over that doxa me also was like watching Alan Iverson yes And watching the contracts and all that obviously you know why love demand I mean obviously went to Georgetown. You know Is that how it at at the time? Then you know Goes to the sixers and you know actually was living in Delaware not too far from there so just huge huge Alan Iverson Fan and like how it feels like he to this very day doesn't quite understand you know he's almost like conscious rebellion right against something because even demeanor was just different. You could just tell you could tell you know what I mean. It's not like you know somebody's asking you to reject where you come from. I mean my say very early in their. If you love what you from. You're going to be unhappy person. I thought that was one of the most profound actually profound. But it's one thing to love where you come from and it's another thing to say I'm forever here. I will always be here. This is all about and this is all I am. You know it was just A. It's a it's a difference and you can see you know like Vic seems happy now and it's interesting because when I go back and look at that stuff. While he was playing for the Falcons. I'm actually not sure how happy he actually was right. Like you've never heard of him smile or anything like that Allen Iverson. I've read enough and talked to enough people to know that this is a man who has never been happy to be honest. I've been dealt the hand that he had been dealt like. I never had to go down the street to buy dope from my mom right and then never had that same mama believed truly God sent me to this planet in order to get her out of poverty and so he gets her out he gets everybody out. Amen I've seen Iverson rally the All Star game a couple of years ago and none of them do still there right and I don't know why exactly all dudes those dudes are not there anymore but all of these people these day ones. You don't see much of them around averaged in anymore like it seems like the existence for him is just kinda lonely to the point where he strikes me as you know those people that you have a conversation with and you try your damage to avoid asking so it's been to write. What would the answer be if you ask Alan? Iverson what he's been up to. Yeah probably not good. No good fight hunger. And you know I I gotTa You. Kinda hinted at it and what you just said like so the shot over all of this. Because you can't stop thinking about you know what you know. Why is your boy coming to college? While I went I went to high with you know when both went off to school. Why why was it? The case that there were always people who didn't go there and the fact that a matter is what is back home like what what is going to happen to you back home. You know what I mean and you know that and so you feel like I mean again. This is very humid for me late. Very humid you feel like okay. I got an opportunity to go. You know make something out of myself and do X Y and Z. And while I do that I'm thinking about you left in this situation. You know no jobs. No you know what I mean. Unsafe area you know guns drugs etc you know poverty you know I. It seems very humid. If that's your boy actually people that say. Now you come with me. You'll safe here you are you. And who am I supposed to hang out with year right because I think especially for athletes right who are not going to college on some academic track that is probably taken them and put them around more different types of people whatever they get near they just kind of like. Yeah like victims about going to Blacksburg Virginia after being in Newport news this is like the super culture shock right. He's always getting out there. And you know Nelson did a good job of that. I showed a picture wife holds onto quality. What they were doing it. I go if I Michael Vick. I think we underestimate about college. In particular how frightening it is for people especially if you don't have much of a background and your people didn't do that and that people that's why people drink so much in college right like they're they`re. They're afraid when they get there. And so you get to bring your body and it was like okay cool. We're going to be all right and you're young. You don't really care like I remember one of my my roommate in college. He was from like Stewart Avenue in Atlanta. Somewhere over there and he always had partners that were coming up on the yard import because they were just as partners in he was in town and the other thing was like you said where were what were they. Doing that was going to be better than this. And then there's always the fun of when the pilot the debris is becomes part of the social structure of your school and now he's hot girls and everything else and then he's just walking around with a backpack with no books in it. Yeah would you happen like I'm English? Major yeah which is exactly what happens. You know other thing. That's interesting about the DOT is. I could be wrong about this and I I certainly don't you don't want to like. I mean he's an incredible incredible dot. I felt like I was watching it and I could see shadow of the OJ. Doc as joint like I felt like I could really feel I mean in a good way you know what I mean like I. Don't you know I'm not trying to somebody's buying anything? But it was just amazing to me like how it felt like shaped. It's pasting it's tone and everything maybe Stanley on that. Before as maybe as God if I don't know but that was that was one of the things that got me to join us this bell road in my head and I just can't forget it. You know y'all because that OJ dot. Because I remember Ezra had sent me when I went to Paris as was like Yo. Can you make sure that coast to look at the dock cool do you have a DVD? And I think that you gave me the first episode. Why couldn't find episodes and I watched a DVD. And I was like I have to see the rest of us. Yes no because something you know as well as was trying to show it to me and you know a buddy of mine you know mutual friend of ours you know it was like As was doing well. Maybe as we're told me I'm doing a six hour seven however long it was dot when I said no sports document documentary about. Actually be good for that long. It was nuts. It was docked. He managed in the fifth episode of that to produce a comedy. And that is maybe the most amazing part of the whole thing is the it. It becomes the funniest caper in the history of mankind. Right about story was vicxtory. Didn't come with a lot to laugh at right later. It was like okay. I'm glad just turned around in the end. What they thought about this documentary too and I was curious if you notice this there was not and I wonder how went over for a lot of people. A lot of what's happened since big went to jail has been centering of the dogs. Who were involved like people who still write stories about the dogs who lived? They found near where they are. You know where are they now? Basically on these dogs and stand may what I thought was actually a fairly bold choice which is to say. We're going to make clear that this was improper behavior. But we're not going to focus on the cruelty that is surrounding this because like if there was court you could argue is prejudicial you know like this is a terrible thing to say. I never read those stories. I never watched I just I. This is taboo. Just I don't. I'm not interested in that. I'm I'm happy that you know it ended up. Wow don't get me wrong but I like I'm not I'M NOT THAT DUDE. I care about vic I care about the person I care about the black man I. I'm just being real with you. That's who I care about. That's what I WANNA. I WanNa know what happened. You know what I mean like I just I don't again. I hate to keep going back to this. But it's like you know we live in a in a in a in a country where our food production you know about. You know Do you know. Many things competed a committing cruelty. That certainly on the level of what they committed and we find it goes every day every day every day so I mean I'm about as interested in that as I am the turkeys that don't get executed on Thanksgiving. You know you're going to pay like the part and the Turkey. Pardon you know that's about how interesting it you know. Those stories autumn me and I thought that the decision to make it a story of redemption was interesting because that was what the focus on was the redemption of because the thing is he did two years in Leavenworth. You about prison breaking people descend into any over to a prison. I've heard of right ain't never heard of no prison because of how easy was right. You only hear about prisons if they mean so he gets out of that and he did everything on the back end that you could possibly ask for somebody to do. If there's some atonement that is necessary. Like he is actually the template for what people want and then the the the part. That's always made me a little uncomfortable with him is he turned into a forgiveness machine for everybody else. Like I wish they would have been time to talk about when Riley Cooper got caught saying inward at Kearns. Sorry he got. He got an extra two years in the league. I think only because Michael Vick was on that team and Michael. Vick was required to forgive everybody because he felt like place..

Chicken fingers because he just didn't know any better right. There's like and that was the thing that he recognized chicken fingers. Because he'd never heard of filet Mignon vigors right U K. They'd be like Oh no no. He'll take what I used to take. He'll take I'll take a new usual right right exactly exactly and and and I think that's the thing that you know we've seen play out athletes and entertainers over the is man and I have to tell you the thing that makes me wonder about is not like the Michael Vick. That's not what I wonder about. I wonder about the lebrons. I wonder about the Kevin Garden that I wonder about the ones you know. I don't know everybody's private life but I wonder about the ones who come in at young come from a similar environment and yet okay you know seem to be at least from what I can tell. Seemed to be relatively okay. I I wonder how that happens. You know what I mean like the thing actually isn't that surprising you know The dogfighting us back of it. I I was surprised. Some of the folks turned on him. I was surprised about his cousin. Giving them up that quick. Yeah that was a little surprising. I get how one ended up in that situation. I very much get out and I actually find out a little bit more comprehensible than how one doesn't end up in that situation. You know you mentioned the idea of his buddy coming with him to college. We both went to. Abc News One thing. Abc You has is the do. That's just around right. You don't know why exactly he's there. He's cool with somebody right. He's around. And then I got to Carolina for Grad School and I didn't realize especially with the athletes and football players. That dude is all that yard to just around like. Oh you guys are paying for you. Stay there okay cool. I'm here and so vig his boy quantities and the thing that struck me about quantum. That documentary did you notice how many times he said we about Michael Vick's money man. Yes I do. We going back to a regular life. What we do and the thing was like. I didn't realize that they had had a break until relatively late. In the documentary. It's only after they had party which was insane. It was only after they had a party quantity you know him. Actually say we ain't smoking. Is You know And I you know I think like I also wanted. And this is Kinda hinted at all through like how much of this was like his wife. You know what I mean. Yeah I mean you you. You're very very lucky. If you meet somebody and you are you a hundred million dollar contract lose everything. Go to jail comeback album. Would they say had negative thousand in the account and that person is still with you you just I mean just that is that is a different you know so the thing that somebody actually cares about you and so I wondered if you know how much of that was like you got you gotta check. I mean she said it seems like he can't be around that it you know. I mean this sounds terrible to say but you know how that'd be due for showing up in my party and getting shot all right like I know he didn't WanNa get shot. Nobody wants to get shot. But like you'll man I'm just getting back are probably shouldn't be having his party in the first place. Why are you here? Why are you here? He's like yeah we back we back like that. That was struck into the the level. Tony it always have when he talked about as we go into Atlanta what what. Yeah but he said he'd do it again. He said he'd do it again. I asked him.

"Name is Bomani Jones. Thanks for listening. Wherever you get your podcast rate. Us review gives five stars. You only get four stars. I'm inclined to think you are a hater This is the time a week where we do interviews and I was talking to a buddy of mine about the Michael. Vick documentary. Does the thoughts that we had and so I thought it'd make a pretty good podcast joining us now. He is the author of four books. The most recent is called the water dancer. Be sure to check that out. His name is tied to Hussy Coats. What's going on man? Hey how you doing vocal to talk to you too? Great to have you at I wanted to. I've been actually waiting for the right time in the last two years to get you on. The documentary was one. That really got me right because part of it. We've also been talking this year. Bellemare Jackson and a lot of stuff that you'd be from Baltimore so I just thought it tied together with so many different things I thought was like what was Michael. Vick to you like as it was going on. Did you see him as something beyond just being an entertaining football player because one thing the documentary did was look at him as almost like a paradigm change. Yeah you know. There's a moment in that doctor. I think about actually answer your question Where he's actually with the Eagles if the latter part and he comes out and eagles have like sort of a throwback joint on he's wearing number seven and I was watching it with my wife and I got emotional because I said Oh moment like he looked like Randall and so like I like the first person really like I thought it was incredible. And this is you know. Take Away but you know like I thought about Randall. Having that can of rambled through a ninety five yard touchdown united joined Fred Barnes and I thought about random and how run around all those incredible plays and you know what I think about is like where league was Randall. With an where it was with vic and where it is now and I you know I have to say like you wonder if if if it had been where it where it is now like for vic and for Randall. You know what I'm saying whether things would it would have been different and you can see the you know the difference in progress. I think they've got to do some things. Rental didn't quite get to do And became an icon in a way round. Didn't really and then you want to do like mahomes. I mean you know just incredible. Just incredible Sean. On any of these guys Lamar any of these dudes man. The the black quarterback thing is interesting for me because I grew up in. Houston so we get to Houston eighty seven. We Got Warren Moon. I saw a black quarterback playing every week like somehow. I don't think I fully understood like what the deal was but I knew at random when he was at I was like okay beyond the fact that he's black. This dude is running like this is a whole different. Like level of excitement. That comes here and I don't think I was able at the time just because of limited experience till I really do the math and understand what was going on with any of these guys and what they were overcoming in order to get to the place where they were now. I understood it when they ran worn. Out of town. Kota Carl's all of a sudden. Everything was like crystal clear. It may says that. Boy Right but I- Randall. Randall was dead. Do but I find interesting. Because I don't like I don't remember people thinking of Randall. Quite as a pioneering kind of figure in the way that in with vic really jumped off the screen just like Oh wait a minute we never see no and I. I feel like he might. They might not even referenced him in that Doc. I don't think not really like Randall came up. I don't I could be. I could be way way wrong and it sounds a little too surprising to say that but I kept waiting. I mean and that's that's that's no disrespect to the dock. One of the things that you know I didn't understand was like Tony Dungee. You know the fact that Tony Dungy. They you know have played a call. You know play the quarterback position that had you know you know contemporary warm Moan and I get that they would probably trying to provide a you know a more historical perspective and everything but you know. I knew Randall was doing something different. I mean let's be straight. He didn't run. He's run a four to forty. He wasn't as fast as I mean he. Just wasn't you know I? I know that so. I'm trying to say the same dude you know Vick was just extraordinary man. I mean vigorous. He was absolutely absolutely extraordinary because he had that Canon. You know When he wanted to he could be so accurate. And just the sheer speed. I mean I think it's you who says very early in the DOC. What would this cat have been if from jump? He said you know about football and it's scary. It's got I've forgotten. How good he when he came back to the Eagles too. I've forgotten. He's actually that good. You know what I mean. We just pretty. Maybe wasn't as good as he been. You know what I mean but it was. It was a decent Second Korea. You know what I mean right and like I think like I had thought about vic because part of the disappointment was the interesting thing in watching that dock. Where like Tony Dungee example for me? They're like hey. Tony Dungy was a quarterback and then they made him play defensive back well to be fair. Tony Dungy was six foot. One hundred and eighty pounds right like. I don't know exactly what quarterback it was that he was going to be and then he wound up being a different pioneer. 'cause he was defensive coordinator at age. Twenty six right with the Pittsburgh steelers like that. That was a big one when moon hours remembered like hearing about how Warren Moon went undrafted. And I thought well okay. Well maybe there was this thing or whatever and then you go back and look at those clips of him in college. You're like what the hell was anybody. Talking about. Here is the racism. Then how do you remember that game against Kansas City? We do for like five hundred year. Kansas City was like the number one ranked. I know they planned to run a shoe but Kansas City Recalling the number one defense that year and he went out there and. I had never seen anything like that. I know I mean so even for me and I guess you know Not Being in Houston. It was clear to me that this dude is on a just really really on another level and it's only one of you know it's really only one of them out there right now but it wasn't until I was an adult and I realized the Warren Moon Mad at anybody else. Now I love one more. Yeah now he made any black quarterback that was at that level matters a lot to me. I mean I I remember my dad. You know for instance you know When when the Redskins go to the Super Bowl with Doug Williams and j straight gets hurt and Doug winds coming I can. And my dad was so ecstatic was like you know what I mean. He wasn't a big sports news but he was ecstatic. You know what I mean. Watch it watch it Doug Williams do his thing you know. Don't WanNa Ricky Sanders and Tim Smith. I mean he was just off the charts excited man that Douglas Zohar to explain to people. I talked about it. I said look I don't fully remember. I remember Doug winning that Super Bowl but I don't really remember what it was like at work and stuff the after right but I remember what it was like what Obama got elected and I imagine that would williams what suitable it had to be something that had to be Louisiana so doug was a whole different level them in that and adopt one. That super bowl boy I just. I wish I would have been more. Like contemporary coming out of grambling. Fear you know brother coming out of. Hvac you to do that. Doug was like like I was saying if like a couple of moments from the eighties. Their speak to like this is what life is like being a black quarterback one Doug Williams guide the Tampa Bay buccaneers a quarterback when they went to the NFC championship game. And then they offer. Alpina my contract that worse than the contracts of half the backups in the NFL evaded the early nineties. Warren Moon had a clause in his contract. That said if I am one of the top three quarterbacks in passer rating at the end of the year my contract gets bumped up to the average of the top three quarterbacks Eddie. Nfl and he did that but Adams the owner was like. That's Nice we're not gonNA. Hey Are you serious? I haven't haven't he I think he did but they told me. I was like a billion bucks or something like that and there's like. Nah No thanks. Does this right like this. Is like the condition of the black quarterback coming up. And so then you do have Randall Cunningham. Of course cats were killing it in college. You know and all that stuff came around and then Donovan. Mcnabb comes and him. Being booed will always stick with me in the greatest quarterback in the history of the franchise. I guess you didn't know what at the time but then they still talk crazy about right. I was left with so many conflicting emotions watching that man. Like on the one level. I was really really happy. That vick turned out the way they turned out. You know what I mean. He actually was you know able to get settled in prison. Destroys people. Prison destroys people. Say Give me time to think and I put my life together and I'm sure that happens but you put that you know next to what prison you know actually does the most people. I mean it. Just sort of see him you know. Turn out okay. You know what I mean. The way he did you know it. Just it just left me feeling really really warm but at the same time you know being in this moment. Right now We're black quarterbacks being so prominent and also being in this moment where. Ct At head trauma is so well known. Why do things happen to thank Tom Right? You know what I mean. So it's like this this man I gotTa tell you this. This is the shadow over everything anytime you know. I'm watching a game or fear and I was looking at this. Joint of Deshaun Watson and still had a boardroom Sean. So impressive this an impressive dude. You know what I mean and just think about like how much you know. Head trauma is just hanging on a C. T. is hanging over this stuff man like I was thinking about. You Know Steve. Atwater is going into the hall of fame and I was like. Are they going to be able to play? The Steve Atwater highlight reel at the hall of fame. Because we don't do that anymore right like I think about the hits that we use to look at. It'd be like yeah you now it happens. You're like yeah. Yeah Yeah and now yet. That's what's the guy in the hall of fame speech about what it was. He did that thing. That's right like what is your primary skill. You don't want these problems right right. Right right over. Here is a world problems. That's what I thought that and I'm wondering what is speech. He's got a big bitch into the fact that like Yoga and they'll never be another guy like me in the hall of fame because they don't let you do this down. Let you do this anymore. They don't let you do this anymore. Now it's crazy is is is really really crazy. I was a huge Steve Atwater Fan. Dennis Smith Man. I you know. And that's what they did. That's what they did. You know it's it's it's really really interesting but I enjoyed it man I I was I saved it you know. I taped one and didn't watch it until the second one came on. Because I didn't want to have to wait. I knew it was GONNA be Stanley. Nelson is like he's the broader. It is right now. You know these Docs. I knew what it was gonna be but it struck me in so many ways you know him. And I've thought about this a long time but I thought him discussing the dynamics of why you bring your people which you was probably the most powerful and the most clarify for folks who are not you know outside of the experience To see but you know like for somebody to say you're at this point and now everybody was around. They can't come or most of them. Maybe not everybody your Momma can come. Wife can come right but these people can't come with you and you gotTa be around this new group of people and this new and let's be clear what the NFL is. This new group of people are trying to take from. They're not people that are going to be on your side. No matter what happens you know and so like just the loneliness man. I mean must be incredible. You know you know it's funny. You mentioned that because like you and I have a similar thing. Now you know you genius now you know you live. Chain is a little bit. You get a little more behind you. But that happened to us in our thirties right. And so like the people around us were kind of formed and they were in their lives and probably settled and what it was that they're going with going to do like. I always say the greatest luxury I've had is hardly anybody's ever asked me for money. People have but it's not like this long line of people who now expect me to take care of them. I can't imagine being twenty one years old and you look back at everybody and you use the not having nothing so the idea of using all of it to bring somebody with you. You don't think you need extra money. Extra money is not a contract you know. It's not a concept. I mean. Not only did it you you know. Does it happen to you at that age? They're looking at him in high school. Like always GonNa Happen is GonNa Happen. He's going to beat I. Do you know what I mean. He You know takes them to college and everything and I I get it man. We're talking to. The brother was the financial advisor and a brother Well Mike said to me. If I'm steak you know I want everybody around me. Eat Steak and I was. You know literally talking to a body about that you know. And he was laughing. I said you know this is hard but I can't it like it's actually you know like who what kind of wife psychopaths jog you know. You gotta be a certain kind of person. Now maybe you will end up in.

So everyone knows I'm a big hater of of ripple a have traded at the one thing that I like more than hating anything as making money. So agree to piggyback on that, you know, it is what it is, but while we're talking on bitcoin, I think it's it's essential to maybe one of the first segments that we do to talk about that since that is, you know, a lot of the traders and stuff that I talked to, we talked to, I do all of us. The big thing that everyone wants is, you know, the reason I trade all coins is to accumulate more bitcoin, obviously, so bitcoin kind of rules the market it is, you know, everyone's might say it's the mother mother bitcoin. A father, bitcoin, whatever you want to say. So you know, saw today is the twenty third were in my opinion, and I'm not trying. I'm getting kind of windy here in your, you know your lot smarter than I am, but we saw bitcoin to seventy eight hundred today kinda got semi rejected, not too bad, sit and been sitting around about seven thousand seven, twenty five for most of the afternoon in the United States. So what what are you seeing now? I guess before we get into this be good time to say, you know, none of this financial advice Josh's not telling you what to buy. He's not ever gonna tell you what to buy. We're just basically help using this to help educate people that are listening. Maybe dive a little more this. We realized on on the podcast that you know we might lack in the TA FA department. So we're trying to to help our listeners and cover all of our bases. So Josh and I'll just let you kinda take over on on that from their rate right now right on so. So I think everybody who listens to the podcast knows. I mean.
