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.

"This is before the widespread corona virus outbreak here in the United States. So that's not mentioned in this interview. What I will do is put a link in the show notes to some news from AIRBNB. On how they are helping hosts customers as well as first responders. Let's start the show all right. So tell us who you are. And what you do hi. Maurice I'm Tim Allen. Vp OF DESIGN AT AIRBNB. And I look after designed functions globally across design research you X. Writing and creative. Wow that's a lot to look over. He added quite a bit. What's a regular day like for you at Airbnb? Does that exist? I don't know if it does exist regular day. It's a lot of context switching. I can tell you that. Sometimes they'll have a day where I try to avoid these but you know it just sort of back to back meetings with wildly different context for each meeting but typically some combination of our creative culture. You Know How do we feel that? How do we calibrate it? You know what is quality look like which leads into product however we impact in customers lives through our product and maintaining quality again. That's pretty constant theme. And then creatively. Our we creating residents with our brand so in some variation sometimes all three Sometimes just kind of focusing on one like like people. I'll have like one day where I'm focusing just mainly on. You know one on ones in connecting with folks making sure folks are being enable to to do the best work. How did you get started at Airbnb? I got started through a conversation much. Like many other positions. I've had I had a conversation with Alex. Slide for WHO's our chief design officer and we just hit it. Hit it off immediately. Our sons are about the same age so he was actually on his way to pick up his son the first time we chatted and we started talking about her. I eat dosen like what we believe in that. Pretty much rhymed and that was a great way to kind of started relationship so just had the conversation and then before you knew it to work at AIRBNB. That's that's pretty good affect what's the best thing about your The I guess the best thing about my job. I think it's just being creative to thinking or Thog me about business. Challenges Customer and community challenges then apply my own cincy. Tuition in background to those challenges is pretty exciting. Tell me more about the team. You mentioned you kind of doing a lot of context switching talk about the teams that you're adrover see. Yeah you have experienced design which is a pretty broad function you know the we have generalists here. So good range of folks that you know either index on visual design or Interaction Design. Or some you know mostly a combination thereof but with varying levels of capability on either side of that the research and insights sort of survey science data science and. You X. Writing Information Architecture. There's a quite a bit of variance. There it's interesting that there's all those positions at a company that is. I don't know what you call airbnb tech companies. That's mostly sort of deals. I would say with. I don't want to call it hospitality. But with lodging in a way yeah. Accommodations is one big part of our brain. You know. We've recently expanded into AIRBNB EXPERIENCES. Where you know. You don't have to own a home to or you know. Have a home in order to share your own or to be a host. Basically talk to me more about that. Yeah it's all AIRBNB. Experiences is all about sort of best in class experiences. So when you arrive at a location you can feel like you're at home and you feel like a local as opposed to feeling like a tourist like we have different categories such as animals just launched recently to a lot of a fanfare. We Have A. We have a couple of categories. That are getting ready to launch Soon as well cooking is another category. That's a very popular. We also have adapted experiences too. So just in terms of inclusivity accessibility. A lot of times people with mobility impairments or people that are disabled. Have a tough time when they're traveling being integrated into experiences until we have a whole host of adaptive experiences that are specifically catered towards disabled and the combinations that are required. So it's it's not even so much. It almost sounds like a built in kind of a package in a way. Like of course AIRBNB. You're renting out someone else's space but it sounds like with this. It also kind of lumps in different activities. You can do like maybe going out to eat or I don't know seeing a play or something like that. Is that kind of a good way of describing it? Yeah I mean mostly. My job is about innovating around the entire consumer journey across digital and offline experiences from the moment you think you want to go somewhere Inception moment through planning through gain obviously through hosted a big experience in terms of your commendation and the experience. You have while you're traveling and so it's like how do you create the best trip possible and make it as magical as possible? I never thought about it. I guess in the end to end sort of like that. It's not just that you're providing lodging. You're also providing entertainment. You're providing turkeys almost tourism. I guess in a way. Yeah yeah a big part of our brand is is is around Tourism we have A ECO-TOURISM Category of experiences as well. So yeah. That's a good way to think about it. Nice to see so one thing that I've I've heard a lot about with AIRBNB. We actually have had some firm AIRBNB on the show. This was years ago. I don't even know if he's still works there anymore but he talked a lot his name. Arena Anthony. I think he was in the production design department but he talked a lot about AIRBNB. And it's very open culture Is that something that you've experienced since you've been there? Yes I'm one of the biggest things that drew me to. Airbnb was like my perception. I'm from the outside of the community. Then now that I'm a part of AIRBNB it's definitely wrong true That open theme is definitely there. I think it's because of like the company mission is resonates so deeply with so many people. It's usually the number one reason people join or WANNA be a part of the company Any No company missions can be Also fluff sometimes right But I think the the actual intent of delivering on the mission of creating a World War. Anyone can belong anywhere So intentionally going after that and then also having the means to deliver against that I think those two factors create this culture that it's sort of like a baseline understanding That people have shared purpose that allows people to be open in a different way. I know that something that you know in really I think in a lot of big tech companies having an open culture seven. That's really important because diversity inclusion is important. They want to make sure that people can bring you know the notion of bringing your whole self to work is something I would imagine in your position being a VP. That's a really big deal. Yeah I mean if you think about the long game the I think about belonging is almost synonymous with creativity. I think when you overlay the factors that add up to belonging with the factors that enable creativity there very similar in a sense of safety With this fearless -ness of you know not in creating errors and The openness of communication feeling like you can contribute all these things that when you when you feel like you belong It's very it's very much a way of cultivating creativity to which is basically my job How do you help to enable that throughout your team that you oversee Will what they start with is just like this foundational representation I think homogeneous teams Usually make a homogeneous products based on homogeneous strategy strategies and. That's definitely not what we're aiming to do again. Like we want anyone to belong anywhere when you say anyone you know. How can your team stretch as much as possible? Across the breadth of human diversity in terms of gender raise Gender Identity Orientation background ability disability and and so forth. We've got a a good range of folks So you know you start to get that diverse perspective built in Who have we don't have it solves a? I think we still have a ways to go as you know. Many organizations do but that is definitely our intent at at foundation. So let's get a switch gears here a little bit. Of course people know you from that gesture. Work that you've done while you've been an AIRBNB but also a lot of your other design leadership positions which will get into later. But let's let's take it all the way back. Tell me about where you grew up. Yeah so my father was in the military so we moved quite a bit I actually spent a Lotta time growing up in Japan several years in Okinawa and several years in Kuni Then we moved To you know what California's South Carolina. Dc northern Virginia area and ended up going to high school sailing in North Carolina and In Yeah went from high school to College in Design School in North Carolina as well. Yeah it saw. I was going to do in my research. You got your Undergrad and you got your graduate degree from NC SEO which featured on the site before we've talked a lot about how great the program is we've had a few you alums on the show to what what was it like there for you like paint a picture like what time period is this when you're at NC Asu man so this was a while back at NC issue. It was called the School of design rather than the College of design It was I I WANNA say it was one of the top. Ten design schools are so so coming into for me was a very big deal. I was like so excited to get in on a I got there. I felt I did feel like a fish out of water though I was like I am. I like these are real designers around me. You know just like You know my background is airbrush. And so I had my little airbrush Compressor and airbrush like already like do some design work and Paula. Becker airbrushing like like how people airbrush t shirts or something like that. Yeah Yeah that's actually how I got into guess designer I with the art by then. Okay School Yeah. I have my own Airbrush company. Yeah t shirts in like sophomore year in high school My Dad got me Air Breath set as a as a gift. 'cause I just drew all. The time was big drawers and I just drew drew cartoons and stuff all the time and then he's like you should try this and before he knew it like. I was making t-shirts for like basketball team in football team. Like all my friends. And then that blue in to blow up into like Cars and boats and then I started doing like businesses in the area and stuff and by the time the senior had this like a whole portfolio business Which I use that as a portfolio which I didn't even know what a portfolio was to get into design school. So you are airbrushing t shirts in the south. I I'm imagining. This is probably like like mid nineties. Probably midnight yeah. You were cleaning up because I saw Airbus. Pretty big back then huge. I had a pretty good pretty nice business as a little high school student Now I was it was good and I just love doing. I just stay up Literally I'd start like I dunno after Dinner Ish Ngos airbrush all the different. Like I guess clients until two. Am or so get some sleep and then go to school in hand out all the the merch nice so it sounds like your parents were pretty supportive of you kind of using your talent in this way. Yeah I mean even just introducing airbrushing you know as like really really supportive of our gener- I I know that's not always the case But Yeah That that that definitely was the case with my family. Did they introduce you to like art and design at an early age or was it? Something you just picked up was interesting because both my mother used to Teach art and then my father was just like a dude ler and I just would see him doodle and it was. He's actually really good artists And he he taught me how to draw when I was super young and then I just kept doing it. Wow and then that of course inspired you end up going to North Carolina state. So tell me about the program. Do you feel like it really helped you once you sort of got out there in the world as a working designer. Yeah Yeah I mean I. I'd say there was like a couple of very fortuitous events that happened and mentors that sprinkled in there that just fueled the passionate already had on around art into design in like Not only helping me understand what design is but also like how it relates to art. You know the very fortunate to be in a curriculum that was labeled art and design Intermix of like subjective emotion and then objective problem-solving in how things relate still to this day kind of foundational in the way I post design Yeah I was You know Dr -tunities that had really were straight coming in One of the professors saw my airbrushing. And you know airbrushing is very Value Metric and that was like one of the things that drew me to it so easy to shade and so forth. And so he's like you know.

"Ken Doll you know and Jesus is literally got a thyroid problem is. It's it's one of those trolls with the little. Yeah that's that's okay. You and I both came up started. Stand up comedy in the eighties and Leno Genesis. Jay Leno. My boyfriend. Yeah and and and you still doing it right. Forty four cities just finished the hardest working man. Do you think now it's a little bit different now this pc culture out there makes it really hard. I think my act if I ever brought that old backpack I'd be driven out of town. I grew up. life-changing with Lenny Bruce the bit he did in sixty one here New York you can't I have to point point to it to have go read. It changed my life about everything I've caught about how it was amazing. I grew up on Richard Pryor. You can't even go back and talk about the book. He wrote again what I gotTa do sometimes as explained which I hate in bigger arenas that this is a thought police thing and I do not like it but when I use these words words. This is my intent behind those words so as long as you understand my intent. I still get people just say it and I said I'm not going to do but they take it out of context and put it on twitter. Facebook I'm surprised they haven't I'm surprised they haven't because I do use some provocative words but I tell them it's really got from my parents. You know they they. They said this stuff and we talked about. I can't even say it here can't even point to it. It is an alarming thing for comedians. But my act has really been about family and kids and grown up anyway but I was going to say if I do my my. The women in my life were whatever political party. It was always the hated the government. WHO'S GONNA pay for it? Yeah they were the always argued about that over over vodka. I don't know the government all this and if I bring up that whole story about my my grandma wants because they stole money money from my parents I never worked and my one grandma a little Democrat down and do that in Miami people laugh and cheer you do wood reading Pennsylvania. Oh why why reading. Well it's a little bit more democratic. They didn't like that in the city so when I did the political stuff. It's a little bit more. They don't really do political stuff. It's it's more of a perspective but I said words words do matter but I said Lenny said they didn't and it was sixty one. Yeah even if you go watch the movie blazing saddles again. You can't even watch looking around in your own home. That's that's true. Yeah and that's my brooks So my family loves your show last man standing. And it's a huge hit. So congratulations It's interesting now in a talk shows on TV. And don't worry I'm not GonNa get you in trouble. This is known but it's conservative because you're a sporting goods store on on the show that sells guns. It's interesting you call your character. Mike Baxter Archie bunker but college educated. Why do you think it was and I I actually on the show? I think there's both sides it's an eight but why was it important to show different kinds of politic. What we wanted to do is not make fun of Religion Not Make Fun of family celebrate and wanted to have a relationship chip that's Affectionate just celebrate. What's good about American family and but be provocativeness archie bunker the Winter University of Michigan. That's what I WANNA make sure that we constantly have these jokes they go. He doesn't hang about Cappuccinos well. Of course he knows about Cappuccinos. He's not that deal and basically what we WANNA do but this long story short we you know we started with Obama President Obama so it was fun poking fun at him because he had a big sense of humor we really thought it. Who's going to be Hillary? So we're all geared up. This is going to be a great year because we love taking shots at the Clintons and the you know all hell broke loose and I said now it was just fun because we already kind of positioned him to be that character and it was real fun especially in California to poke fun at the liberal side of things just because they're so. Oh can you pay folk funded. The other side is more fun than to poke fun. Well I use this. As an example I met your father. He was literally did phoned razor in the first one. I was invited to because they never know where to say from. My Dad was so funny when you go out after he he was a wonderful guy and I said I always joke that the Democrats generally real in public and private kinda scary and rice vice versa. Republicans Kinda too high a pants and the golf pros in their speeches but outside of it. They're really funny. And then I mentioned this is with lock in these two guys I read. I'd be interested. Virginia and Were school wrote a whole piece on the best part about Republicans and the best part about liberals and it changed. Its again that Lenny Bruce saying we've losses US ability to compromise my brother and I both opposite sides of the spectrum. He read it he goes damn. I'm a conservative. He's not I read the thing depositing about liberals eight damn. I'm a liberal. I said that's where our show we tried to do this. Bow and learned this. This word called compromise. That's where we don't hear anymore. uh-huh.

"Be right back later. Lindsay on the run by rope. Video of Senator Lindsey Graham wanting away from an Iraq war veteran and what Joe Biden says Lindsay will regret for the rest of his life. Thanksgiving League we're talking politics At Our table we have to talk about that. I can't not talk about tomorrow. The one and only. Ll Cool J. is here hang with the ladies. I'm a new on. ABC Still Ahead. Last man standing start Tim Allen. The holidays are here on year deal. So percents Lindsey Graham continues to baffle folks with some of his behavior and his response to an Iraq war veteran who tried to have a civil conversation with him didn't help matters take a look a onslaught and I believe the prisoner. Trump is not over. You took them and you have said was was. Did he think that. What do you think happened did he just what was what he's thinking? Oh my God. He's going to get me to talk against trump on my God. I won't be able to win the election next time and trump will turn on me between some and I have to go back to whatever I was doing before became a senator. Oh my God. That's what he was thinking. He's a savvy enough politician. At least let the Guy Finish what he was saying or respond him and and maybe that was a moment of weakness. That Panda Graham at least come out and say I apologize for doing that. What I what I don't like seeing people losing their humanity losing the the people that they are because of trump because he's not going to be in office forever over and I I just don't people I don't think I don't think he knows long term? I don't think this is going to be pressed for live better and this is someone who has served for all of us. At least let him finish what he was saying or have a conversation his. I'm baffled by WHO LOVES THE VETERANS UNTIL THEY ASK them a direct question strain and then suddenly veterans. Who cares well? Well I think it. I've been in situations like that in the Senate Hall or the Congressional Halls and there's always people trying to to make news with cameras. It happened like I can write Code Pink One time like storming my dad's office and you never really know. He should be respectful to all veterans. I didn't interpret interpret that the same way Lindsay is really hard for me to talk about in public because I've had to reconcile his politics right now are very different than mine. But I've known the man since I was ten and I love him very much. So it's hard for me and again that's the best part about being on the view is that I don't have to pretend to be a journalist and I know he's currently fighting with Joe Biden right now now and it's literally like watching family members go after each other and I think trump used you wear things too weird people and I don't condone what he did but I get it because when people come up to me with a veteran probably do whatever they want to be But I don't love it but I can't talk crap about. I'm sorry that's that's all right. You don't have to talk crap about him but one could say you know you got to be a little more respectful to beds you just you just do. And he was thirty three years. So you know I mean. If he's this longtime friend of Joe Biden and now he is sort of spearheading. We're heading an investigation into Joe Biden's son and so I just don't understand where his loyalties lie. Well you know what other than craziest about all of this is you know. Muna's has oh I have this information and this one says I've got this information. Well what Anjar whip it out when this all started you know. Stop plan with. I just stopped playing it. You have information if you have information that is going to to help.

"It's GonNa be tight as hell. I'm excited about it so the over a thousand thirty y'all who are on Patriot dot com slash Ross Bohlin podcast. You'RE GONNA have your own hotline just because like the the eight eight W. R. Bowlin number is so got we get thousands and thousands of calls so it's gone to the point where I can't even screen them and unlike for instance to find the three that I'm GonNa play today. It took about forty five minutes because there are so many of them are people just like talking about what what they like about the show or asking questions. It's a lot of them are stuff that is not meant to be played on the show now. That's what I want. The hotline like just like that text number. I just gave seven four one seven four one. The crisis hotline now obviously utilize services like that before you do what I'm about to say but the other idea behind eight eight eight W. You're bowling was always always always have a place that if somebody felt alone or like they just needed to unload or say a few things the you could do that like. I'd prefer obviously obviously that you call with a question or a hypothetical trash trash who tells the story or singing a song southern. I can use this content to put on the show and then get paid and entertain people because that's the idea here but if you need it for anything else it's their point being it fills up like a motherfucker now so I've gotta get the other hotline going for the Patriarch People. Only that is going to be cool. Keep an eye out for that. I will announce that number when I I'll do it this weekend. I've got a lot of time like I said I'm not even put pants on this week and surely I can handle a thirty minute phone call by the way I'm getting the new iphone to that shit should be at the house by the time I get back the iphone eleven as far as I can tell well first of all I should doc note. When you have a media company you get to write off like all your technology stuff so like McCabe cable bill my phone the Internet all that stuff obviously this for work man and it's my fucking career so I'm not paying for the phone myself all right. It's on the company and it's a tax. Write off that being because this shit is ridiculously fuck twelve hundred get more expensive every time it just blows my damn might. I can't stop myself from buying the biggest one with like five hundred one in sixty gigabytes or what I need. Maybe two hundred maybe I. I'm not even close to fill in this other one up that I've got but I can't stop myself from buying the biggest one so so. They're crazy expensive. The point is that's one tight advantage of starting media companies you get to you like I feel like not an asshole for ordering it right when it dropped even though I absolutely absolutely do not need it. You know what I mean. You know what I mean because those of you listening who are like yeah I already got my iphone eleven max pro or whatever it's called. I got that one the fucking I'm such a Douche I don't even know what why are we talking about this. Why why Ross is we're doing hotline. 'cause why eighty eight eight eight doubling get is a number. I get to do something cool for the first time ever now with this new Konya Machine I put on my headphones and now I can hear myself which is always a little uncomfortable. It's weird. I hope I'm not talking differently. Now that I can hear myself I put on my headphones and I get to manually clay each hotline. Call the needs to be played and then respond to it in turn so without further ado here's your first call for the day. Hey Ross. This is from South Carolina was good. I was just looking at twitter the other day. I saw this crap going on about Takashi six nine. Oh no I just wanted to hear your thoughts. Do you think that Takashi six nine is on the same level. As the king of the rat bastards Tim Allen ganging union by hanging wow wh- seriously though that is that is an incredible. The question is We have to talk about this. Should I guess I guess we have to. I've got some look. I've got some to cash. Six nine takes attention to get off my chest. This stuff has gotten completely insane totally out of control. His trial has started with those of you who are unaware. He has begun testifying against seemingly everyone he ever met in fact. Aj ended up making a mean last night. It might be the funniest Mimi I've seen. It is bar none the funniest tweet I've seen. Aj far fire fire out he find out the pick of Takashi on the Stan. Would this motherfuckers in a suit with a number six nine tattooed on his forehead. It's just it's mind-blowing. Did this is where we're at and says your honor. His name is Ross Bohlin and he's the leader of the ORB EP gang. He's the one who rated that you put. Lahey is three kilos of Napkins at his Austin residents residence which is a hilarious tweet but the point is this. The man is reading on everyone. It is one of the all-time great rat jobs being executed before our eyes like yesterday in an incredible turn. Somehow Jim Jones got swept up like Jim Jones from the dips like Ballu data doc guy. Here's a fucking well actually put out an album like in May or something but it hasn't made an album the mattered in like a decade or longer uh dip set what should stop mattering long like college dropout. That's the last time Cameron mattered Jim. Jones is a in a gang. Isn't it like fifty fucking years old. Wasn't he a fucking rap what Dude Angkor DB got swept up in this shit somehow this bitch. She cannot stay out of trouble anyway. I actually think this is trouble for she apparently has admitted to being a gang affiliated before but this dude is is going in in in court. He doesn't give a shit so Thursday what he ended up doing. He named fellow rapper. Jim Jones as a member of the nine Trey Trey Gangsta bloods which by the way I gotta say you hear a name like nine. Trey Gangsta bloods and you're like well. That's that's you guys could have done a better branding ending jobless not very good but it's intimidating. Still you're still you. Don't WanNa fuck with that. I don't hear that and think man yeah. Fuck those pussies. I'm I'm a mess these dudes no. I think yeah I'm a probably avoid all contact with the nine. Trey Gangsta bloods. Holy Shit the most disorganized bunch of morons in the entire a fucking world. These people are trash by definition. These are the trash people hashtag trash so this idiot idiot to Kashi Daniel Hernandez his government name. He's on trial for racketeering drug trafficking and many many many many many many other crimes and he was asked by prosecutors. Jim Jones was and he answered quote.

'Big Bang Theory': Why Jim Parsons Walked Away From One of TV's Biggest Hits

"About. Density, the nearly fourteen billion smash hit big bang theory, will air its final episode tonight. But you know why the show is winding down. The main star of the show, Jim Parsons, who plays the role of Sheldon Cooper, actually. Is ready to, to, to stop the show. He was previously rumored to be behind the decision to not return beyond season twelve while the show is an ensemble class Parsons character is the most well known and beloved and is usually the brunt of jokes or is the focal point of whatever major plops going on because he's the most complex of the characters, we don't know if he's got ADHD. We don't know if he's got some form of autism, you know alway no if said he's not crazy because his mother had him tested. We know he's hyper intelligent. We know he's a bit arrogance but he is capable of feelings. Because we've seen his character developed from neurotic to romantic. With Amy Farah Falah is onscreen love. The forty six year old actor has won several EMMY awards for his portrayal and did you know he had a massively successive Broadway successful, Broadway career? I didn't know he was forty six this. I thought he was younger than that. But that's why he was hired to play this role because he looks a lot younger than he is speaking to the Hollywood reporter Parsons explained that he didn't want to play the part anymore. Ironically, he is the only member of the cast that will stay in the big bang theory. Ecosystem, thanks to his voice over will role in the prequel, spin off young Sheldon. The star wears many hats, including a producer of the Netflix series special. In addition, he'll reprise his Broadway role and the network adept of the boys in the band. Now, boys in the band, was a revival that Jim Parsons, had a big role in bringing back of a Broadway show. It was the first Broadway show about homosexuality. And this the boys in the band, and they're all in the closet, and they're all talking about. An deals with all that. And then, before that, didn't he star in rent, I thought he starred in the musical rent might have been a Broadway. Not the movie, the Broadway production of rent I thought that was where he made his bones, Jim Parsons, so. And the boys in the band was written in the late sixties early seventy s. Yeah. Yeah. And it was monumental, but I don't know that it was huge and his revival. I think is was huge. So serious creator Chuck Laurie explained that he considered moving this show forward without Sheldon. But ultimately decided not to Laurie previously found himself in that position when Charlie Sheen was fired from two and a half men. Another of his shows he was ultimately replaced by Ashton Kutcher and the show continued for a little while longer before taking its final bow. But it was one of those jumped the shark moments for that show when he was gone, all of a sudden, the focal point was gone. So this that what is your favorite? Is there a favorite big band theory episode, or maybe catch phrase, or maybe, you know, there's so many, I, I, I don't know it would be difficult for me to I think my favorite was when Sheldon decided he was going to interact with everyone virtually. So he created a virtual device. Nice of a of a monitor attached to a robot. Yeah. And had a had a shirt hanging on it. And that's what he was going to do it wasn't going to interact with people at all. And I think that was some of the most clever jokes. They have come up with on that program. So I have to. All right. Mrs Mike and the love canon, my producer when they won the costume contest of the comic book shop. Yes, I love that episodes that, that went right into my brain that, that was because Kaley CoCo is dressed, as wonder woman. Yeah. And. Very accurately. And I you know she kept putting on the brunette wagon I was like now leaving the wig off. You make a great blonde wonder woman. So I had that those right. Yeah. Second one was weighing. Leonard was dating Raja's sister. Yeah. And the roommate agreement fight the roommate agreement fight, and when she got Sheldon because she was a lawyer. Yes, that was brilliant. And we certainly have seen all of the characters evolve. I mean rise, the, their friends, the astrophysicist went from beings in completely incapable of talking to women unless he was stoned drunk. Yes. To actually having relationships and we've seen a penny Kaley. Coco's character go from a flighty airhead blonde to someone who really has character in his out there, working as a drug rep we've seen all three we've seen Howard Walla wits go from being a creep, a complete odd to creep to actual pal. Being palatable now and then Leonard we've seen him grow from, from being a complete nerd to, to actually being the one. I think that is the deer in the whole ensemble cast, because he's the one that has has had to deal with Sheldon. He's been Sheldon's caretaker, at the same time he's had to do. Penny Kaley Coco's character and has done so successfully just by being himself, though, not by changing who he was because so many times, you tried to change who he was, and it didn't work, and then was started when he started to be himself, that's when it six. So that's why like that. Oh, there's a third one and it, it helps and we've seen all three of them involve themselves in romantic relationships of all form for that matter. Go ahead and there's the two that evolved football. Yes, there was the one where. Entered learn to watch the Rams brash game. Yeah. And then I jumped onto my chair when I realized the writers in messed up on one of the one of the things that was in that it was a minor mistake. But it was now being being a geek, I was like that's why you like this show because it's about you. And then the other one was whenever they were over at his house. Yeah. And the football game was on and Sheldon started breaking down place. Yes. Because his dad was a high school football coach. His dad was being high school football coach which led to Sheldon. And he was sitting there and he's just breaking that stuff down, that is that those were good and you know, what else they handled very, very well, because you never saw, and that was another thing that was very sometimes when you have a character you never see. But you hear it's solid gold. I'll give you an example, Tim Allen, and his neighbor that you never saw above the is okay, hi-de-ho neighbor that was solid gold a closet that Tim, Allen's character could go into and get solace. Howard wallets bother. You always heard off camera or offset, and you never saw her. You just heard all these outland outlandish descriptions of her and turns out, she was voiced by one of the script coordinators. She was a minor bit play. She wasn't an actress. But she just had that Brooklyn accent. And, and anyway, she in real life passed away of cancer. And when she passed away, they chose to eliminate the character, and so- Howard wallets his mother passed away. And I thought they handled that very thought. Oh my goodness. They really did that. Because we, we read that she had died during the hiatus. And then when the show kicked back up again, this is about three years ago, I guess, maybe three or four. And then they did the episode where his mother died on. She went on vacation and died, another how is comedy like this going to handle a debt and they handled it very well. They didn't do well on it, it was just she died wallow. It's his character had to go deal with it. And then that was, you know you didn't see him anymore, wallets woods for a little while. So that was handled very, very well. Now I've read I've read that something similar will happen tonight. I at least there were hints of it are they false leads probably when the final episode of Seinfeld was coming down? I think I read three or four all this is the script an exclusive look at the script, and none of them were right? None of them were even close. I do know each and every one of the actors normally they do not get to keep wardrobe or props. But each of them got to pick their own prop to keep. So Bernadette got to keep her glasses that she's always wearing even though she doesn't in real life wear glasses. Wallow. It's his character kept the Nintendo belt buckle that he wore in the very first episode. And, and each one got to keep something so that that's kind of cool to their own. Little memento from the show. Yeah. And then shell does not going anywhere because he's hinting that because he still voicing young Sheldon. There's we're going to see how far they're gonna take young Sheldon you know, because we know certain things about shell for instance. No big spoiler here. We know Sheldon's father eventually dies of a heart attack. You're looking at me. Like you didn't know. No, you're right. You're right. It's it's referred to unless they decide not to deal with it at all because they can do that as writers. But anyway, then one episode Sheldon is going on about his dad, and then, and then, unlike my dad because, again, his dad never shows up in the in the later episode, you never see his dad, and it's because he died of a heart attack. And at one point Sheldon, made the made the comment, you're going to like my dad and my heart explode when I'm forty six or whatever it was. It was. But anyway, so we know

"Tim Allen important at Christmas from the Santa Claus franchise. I'm more important. I totally agree with it. A lot of drama in this latest episode. Yes, because Molly is very frustrated with the subpar quality stuff that's being put out there. And so there's some discussion of that early. Go deep go deep on the net. Flicks. Q and you'll find the worst of the worst. You watched the Princess which just recently fantastic. All that. She's gonna get married at the at the Royal place. And there's yes, Vanessa Hudgens. Sure, you're talking about four Christmases the movie for Christmas and never seen it. That's a good one. You should see Vince Vaughn and Jon ever. It's quality work. All right.

"Isn't Tim Allen stats for you? How eighty eighty million is NetWorth? I I'm surprised it's not higher than that. Truthfully. Yeah. But you gotta consider the fact that like okay back in the nineties and shit when he was crushing it. They probably didn't have it set up the way they do now to I mean, if you had a show with the success of home improvement now in two thousand eighteen you're gonna end up in your the main guy, which he was you're gonna end up making more than that. Because Netflix the way deals are structured back into vote us is all that shit. So I think that's just as a result of him having most of his success twenty thirty years ago, but eighty millions now than shake your dick at and he pulls in two hundred thirty five thousand per episode of last man standing which again, it's funny. It's like, you would think it'd be more. But two hundred thirty five grand in episode is is again, it's a respectable amount. Apparently made one point two five million per episode for the final season of home improvement which ended in ninety nine. He got five hundred K for toys story apparently five million for the second one. Twenty two million for the third one. They're doing a fourth one right now. Tim Allen is a very rich man in a lot of people went to prison. So that he could be that. I'm not saying one anything else other than that should not be forgotten to Mellon is a rat bastard. That's not something you could run from. You want crazy statistic? Sixty six percent of men lose their hair by age thirty five. How how insane is that shit? Sixty six percent two-thirds shitty is part of that is when you start to notice hair loss. It's too late. Obviously it's much easier to keep the hair you have then replace hair you've lost. So you have to ask yourself is my hairline slowly creeping backward on me, if I've got a bald spot going, how confident am I that a year from now, my lettuce is still going to look as full as it does at this very moment..

"And I'm not saying anything, I'm just reading this particular little section here. Okay. The headline is remember when Tim Allen nearly got a life sentence for traffic and coke, and it's got his mugshot, which I put up on our Instagram last Friday, but thinking about this for few days to great. It's very entertaining situation me, here's the here's an opening paragraph. Most of America knows Tim Allen best as the genial lovable sitcom dad from home improvement in his current red state. Reassurance vehicle last man standing this was written? Twenty fifteen that show probably doesn't exist anymore. But if you're looking for coke in Kalamazoo Michigan in the mid seventies. You might have known. Tim Allen is your drug dealer enough. People knew him as such that in nineteen seventy eight and undercover cop set up a sting operation that might have landed Alan in jail for life. Had he not snitched on nearly two dozen other dealers. I want to focus on that port for a second. Obviously this man read it onto dozen people, and we gave him a pass as a country. We let him become home improvement. This is this is a mistake an oversight by the American people. I'm gonna continue reading this just for a bit more long. Here you go Allen who was born Timothy dick holy shit. That's an awful name had a fraught upbringing in nineteen sixty four when he was eleven his father was killed in a car accident while returning from at university of Colorado football game two years later is family moved in Michigan and his mom remarried. He eventually match tricky related at central Michigan university on what the fuck that means. But soon transferred to western Michigan university in Kalamazoo where he would meet his first wife, and according to one biography begin dealing drugs. He graduated in nineteen seventy six and by October of nineteen seventy eight he was staring at decades if not life in prison, and it's funny because there's so many the details. Of the situation outside of the ones. I've already given. You are pretty scarce. And Tim has been asked about this this time he's done in prison. Many times over the years. I'm sure he's sick of it. For the most part. He's just acknowledges that that it that it grew him up put him in a position of great humility as he puts it. It's funny to describe you put almost a couple dozen other people in prison in you, describe it as a position of great humility that you were put in the it's just interesting part of the g code part of the code of the streets, part of the just common sense tells you that, you know, if you if you get caught committing a crime, you you be a man and you do your time. You don't flip on other people? You don't talk to police you don't put other people in a precarious situation where they're gonna lose days hours years of their life because because of a mistake you were busted for that's the general understanding of the g code and how it works. If you get busted in the game. Tim got caught up in the game any broke the rules. He snitched his heart as you can snitch. He got out made millions of dollars. Came buzz light year. He did fuck in jungle two jungle. And yet nobody remembers this shit that Tim Tim Allen is a rat bastard. People need to remember. Okay. He traded names for time. He did not stick to the G code. Tim Allen is a RAB bastard and should be remembered as such also I love the closes out. This is from click hole, which is like the union. It's very funny. It's believe it's owned by the owner. It's curable. Yes. It's owned by the here's a headline from from click whole people whom Tim Allen read it out when he got arrested for smuggling cocaine in the nineteen seventies talk about how home improvement got them through prison. That's funny shit as good ship props to whoever wrote I've got a few things that are about to blow your mind blow it home improvement on the air for.

"International airport for possess. Session of over six hundred fifty grams of cocaine. Up one cycles as someone who is unfamiliar with cocaine that sounds like a lot of cocaine. So it's it's one point four three pounds of blow that Tim Allen Allen, the were familiar with got arrested with that's that's a a lot a lot a lot a lot a lot of. I mean, you get a life sentence for that back then in the seventies one point four three pounds of cocaine full blown drug trafficker, Tim Allen was he actually pled guilty to felony drug trafficking charges Tim Allen. And for those of you have heard this. I'm aware. It's you're like, yes. Yes. Ross I know my mind has been blown by this two years ago, or whatever it is that you found out, but there are too many people who still unaware, and that's why we're talking about it. He gets busted with one point four three pounds of coke in the airport pleads guilty to felony drug trafficking charges provides the names of the other dealers in exchange for a sentence of three to seven. Years rather than a possible life since he read it, Tim turned Tim went state's witness, Tim is with the feds, Tim is a rat. Bastiat? He's not with us. He's not violated the G code and. It's a bummer. But it's something that we need to face, and we need to not forget because as you know, if we forget history would doomed to repeat it in Tim. Has some history that needs to be discussed. This is important. This dude gets paroled June twelve nineteen Eighty-one he served two years and four months in federal prison in sandstone Minnesota shoutout to the good people in Minnesota. You know, I love you dearly. The Tim Allen, Tim Allen buzz fucking light year home improvement, dad, one point four three pounds a coke. Two years, four months in federal Correctional Institution rats out is boys. It's crazy. There's also this in the legal section of his Wikipedia in nineteen ninety seven Allen was arrested for DUI in Birmingham. Michigan at the time has blood alcohol. Content was zero point one five nearly double the legal limit in Michigan. He was sentenced to one year probation. He entered a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol abuse as part of his court obligating. Now, this is not crazy people get DWI's. And do you is every day? They don't get busted with one point four three pounds of cocaine every day. They do get D wise DWI's and such every day. That's that's a more common crime. It's just funny to me that Tim only got one year probation. This is a guy who was previously been busted with six hundred and fifty grams of coke the way crime is supposed to work is you can do something really bad like re. I mean you fucking kill somebody. If it's an accident, and you've never done anything bad before you probably gonna be okay. Probably now if you've ever done anything bad before. And then you do something else bad these things start to multiply they're like exponential. And that's when the court system really starts to fuck you up, and that's how people who get caught slang in like, you know, shitty. Little amounts of we'd like corner selling weed on the corner amounts of we'd grams eight sin quarters and shit. You get popped like a few times in suddenly you're serving years on an idiot crime. And that's a huge issue with the prison system right now that we're trying to reform that some people are trying to reform anyway, some people are just fine with the way it is way. Too many way way way way too many people for the record in my opinion are locked up for stupid drug crimes that don't have anything to do with anything at all. And far more dangerous people are still out on the streets. So just on that to keep in mind, in my opinion. A lot of these these drug charges that were handed out over the past. Like, I dunno hundred. Two years are bogus. Tim Allen back to Tim Allen focusing on Tim Allen, no politics. Just Tim any one year probation for that DWI DUI is interesting, but I'm originally little bit about this Tim Allen cocaine situation that some a lot of people know about this. But it gets overlooked overshadowed. He's buzz light year for God's sake. Here's here's here's a couple of paragraphs from defame, our which is a golfer website article..

Tim Allen on 'Last Man Standing' — and President Trump

"Let's talk about Tim Allen, the comedian the TV star. Of course, his show was dumped on maybe you could go back to the dumping of a show on ABC and his most recent defense gasp of Donald Trump. So take us back to the beginning here. Oh, sure. No, no, Tim Allen had a top top particularly in a Friday night time slot for ABC. Disney sitcom on television. Ami EMMY award nomination and. You know, it's so difficult to get a a hit television show and yet inexplicably in the sixth season. ABC dropped the show it shocked the whole cash, and there was no business explanation that made any sense whatsoever. Spokespeople for ABC. Disney said it the cost had risen too high. Which? All right. Fox entertainment jumped in which smartly and picked up the show, and it will debut. This fall dodge Tim Allen has been a little bit more open to interviews because he's promoting the show. And I think the show is going to be perhaps even a bigger hit. You get a call. It will it will it maintain the same name as is still going to be last man standing. You know, I don't have confirmation of that. But I would think they'd be able to work that out that would be important. Yes. So I expect it will be. But it might be Tim Allen's last man standing, okay. So Tim Allen does this. Interview with Entertainment Weekly. And in the interview, he said. Notice because the economy is better. And he said, I like Trump we need a guy like that. It'd be able to get things done. Well, that sounds like a Maga Trump's supporters. So now, Tim Allen was already kind of in that barks. But but the fact that he is out there saying this now. Shows a lot of actually a lot of courage in the light of the atmosphere that is in the entertainment business because there is backlash against him for saying things like that. Because they Trud President Trump is irrational and crazy and a kind of a

Tim Allen Breaks His Silence on Roseanne Barr's Firing: 'She's Just Not That Person'

"That if the deal goes through where disney buys fox that the simpsons could be displaced because disney wouldn't want somebody else's animation on their on their network that can't be right can it it's not actually as it turns out we're in the middle of the television critics association tour we're all the networks present you schedules shoes two television critics Kayla Cobb is out there right now she's actually jump into the day but yesterday was the day and of. Course they're right up front right at the beginning about the whole merger and said basically not much is going. To, change at least that's the plan right now in terms. Of Disney taking over FOX, referring to it as a quote unquote FOX which is not an official name. But that's what they're going with the moment and. They said that programs like. The Simpsons will most likely continue on FOX because. It's such. A part of a brand they don't wanna change, too much if I was. To speculate beyond what they said the big thing that most likely will happen is you have this forthcoming Disney video on demand service and you'll probably see things like the Simpsons that ever really, huge back? Catalogue of episodes at going over to that so you'll be able to watch the old episodes. There instead of potentially things like app asks, plaster affects now But in terms of watching it off the channel I think. You'll be fine you won't have. To change too much good very good news looking. Very forward to Monday better call Saul the season premiere I have to say I love breaking bad and when Bob Odenkirk and saw showed up on that show I'm like this so so serious he's just this foil. And I don't know if it fits and now I ended up liking better call Saul better than breaking bad I, have, to agree with you completely I cannot. Believe it but it the show is wonderful it's phenomenal it's a beautiful show it's a slow show but the way. That I I was talking to somebody about it the other day around the office is it's purposeful, there's a lot of shows. That have Dallas the age of peak TV have, just very long targeted looks. But they don't really feel like anything they, feel like they're supposed to be saying something everything, is better call solve needs. Something and without spoiling, anything I've actually seen, the first couple of episodes of the next season and it's. As good as. Ever if not. Better breaking bad fans, are gonna freak out about the things that happened throughout the course the episodes again no spoilers and in particular It isn't exactly but she has been. Sleeping, on. Race seahorn plays Female opposite, Amish show but if this season does not, win her an EMMY just based. On the episodes I've seen alone there is no. Justice with oil she started out slow in my book to boys, she has a very deadpan delivery and I'm not really a fan and then she totally grew. On, me to wear just blossomed in just such, a fantastic character yeah there were a if you watch the show there. Was some big events. That happened to the end of last season a major, character died she her character ended up in this awful car accident and if, they don't let go of that in the first couple of episodes they deal with it and delve, into it and the emotional weight of all that at in particular a lot of. It is. On her on her character? And it's beautiful heartbreaking work it's wonderful where did she come. From I don't know? That I'd ever, seen her in anything else anything before. The show I'm usually pretty. Good at noticing actors and actresses like that but I, never saw her before she came out of nowhere and she's really good she, was comedian she sort of bounced around for a while she was with me the wooden coming show, a couple of years she was on a show called I'm with her head cases. And other. Things but like you said? This was something where she popped onto better call Saul and. Suddenly completely blossomed wonderful Myself in aluminum foil and one of those blankets and watch the upcoming By, far the best for fans of twenty, four it may be coming, back but it may be coming back twice explain This is from the FOX TV a day it seems like they're not. Totally clear on what they, wanna do other than, the fact that. They love twenty four and wanna keep making it forever whether it involves keep yourself they're not right now there's two ideas one of them is. A twenty four prequel that would focus on Jack Bauer at what brought him up cheerio at the beginning of twenty four and then the other one which I think is actually. More interesting and much weirder is a legal drama in the style, of twenty, four and in the world of twenty, four so where you've had Jack Bauer and then in twenty four legacy, Corey Hawkins character kind of jumping. Around the world inciting people this way to follow the legal reprecussions of all those things or at least that's the idea and that's almost weird enough to work with the gimmicks still be there that each episode each one hour episode is? One hour of twenty four, hour day or are they scrapping that. Idea I don't know but my guess is they would keep it just because I remember them talking about twenty. Four legacy when that came, out and they felt like that was such a part of the DNA of the series that they really can't lose that conceit right so I think. That will remain integral going forward I always thought to make that, gimmick realistic, let's say you sleep six or seven, hours out of the day six or seven episodes should just be your, main character sleeping when that's he. Funny one hundred percent I mean you can watch big brother I love that show and I'm not caught up so what will happen to Julie Chen if something happens to les Moonves says By the way. Someone has, texted us and said Bill. And the decider which is of course Alexander who. Works for decider dot com it said? That Colbert definitely did name moon van I The. Name that's more interesting if he, says, wow. Fascinating Tim Allen has been on the news in the news, lately Yesterday he was? Kind of defending Roseanne Barr talking, about, it. Did you get a chance to hear any of his quotes I did we. Wrote it up for the site a little bit you know Keeps being upfront again this is stuff from TC a. They're talking about last man standing which is bumping from ABC over to FOX they talked. A, little bit about how the show will change, or now that's on, FOX basically they're not gonna come right out and say he's a Trump supporter. But he's definitely going to be conservative as he was. Previously on the show they also talked, about how they're pickup of last man standing was specifically because. Of the success whereas which. Led, it to his conversation where he talked about I know Roseanne. My daughter. Well she. Sets weird things about her being the most diverse person. He does Doesn't really. Make sense And and he also, said some pretty frankly without getting around without it where things for older comedians about who's, making, up, these doubt, comedy. Benthic PC culture etc so it, wasn't anything too shocking particularly if you're installing to knowledge clear in the. Past couple of years but he also do outright, come out and say I support what Roseanne said about Valerie Jarrett. Or anything like that thank God for FOX footy didn't sticking with the fact that his show got cancelled because he is a. Fan of Donald Trump's. He's sticking by that that's so nice Oh yeah It was worth a rating stellar for. That show that's what. Confuses, me The ratings were very good. It was, I believe in number two comedy on TV at. The, time but, frankly in terms, of broadcast, TV ratings are. Not great overall you know you. Have Keeble, you're streaming you're of everything differentiating where people, are watching TV so frankly even if you had a really. Popular comedy that doesn't mean that it was right for ABC going forward and. ABC is changing a lot of its programming going into the, new season they're changing both. The drama and the comedy side FOX's. Well pivoting away from one camera comedy is. Back to, three camera comedies so there's a lot of changes going on and honestly I, would point more towards overall network things rather than anybody's particular political leanings tell Tim Allen that. We already know that We're, done with you on that people like you I I, mean it was, funny but it's kind of the same delivery of what he's. Doing. Sure last man, standing I've watched a couple. Episodes it's. Okay I just don't understand the. Big I'm baffled by, it but it has been very, popular but, I'm I'm confused by. Myself. Alex great to talk to. You and, again if you had to pick something big to watch this, week it's probably better call Saul right over on. AMC, yeah. Absolutely if you're not caught, up go into the, season it's all on Netflix right. Now leading fourth, season which premieres on. Monday it's. Fantastic you won't regret. It. Good and preachers getting very weird and. Dark so, weird, dark, Betty Buckley jump on. Board I'm. Sorry I love that. Show Basically turn. Your. TV on AMC and never. Turn it, off that's the way it'd be it all right well thanks, Alex appreciate it have a great weekend it's Alexander's. From, decider. Dot com.

"Young man that sitting there in a cafe and he's talking to his mother and his mother doesn't recognize him it as over sixty million views and when you look at some of the comments when you sit there with your mother and it's really not your mother anymore i think we have an expectation about roseanne barr i think abc had an expectation about roseanne barr that probably was not grounded in reality and when they saw that reboot and they saw the money and they saw the cash i think tom arnold is right about that he said over a billion dollars is connected that show that is one of the best reboots if not the best reboot in comedy that they've ever had well let me finish i wasn't done so and then jump at tim allen for instance he got his show back as a result of roseanne barr getting her show back so go ahead and jump in that's what you just said proves the point i'm trying to think of is that she she is a capable person you do not rise to the station that she rose to in this world without having capabilities and being able to manage your life in a way because there are so many things that go on behind the scenes to do a major network television so whether you're negotiating with executives are going through complicated contracts managing a writer's room where you're going to have a dozen or two dozen people coordinating shows where you're filming story arcs for an entire season of television doing all the promotion all the writing all of the payroll dealing with photographers and cameramen and makeup and moored roman sets and all the things involved with with being your name is on a show is incredibly complicated so let's not undersell the how capable roseanne is so let's say that she did have multiple personality disorder then she she should have the ability or her people that are close to her should recognize then multiple personality disorder if one of them is racist tendencies and twitter accounts do not mix then you need to have in your sober moments where you're predominant personality is running the show of.

"I'm just curious did everybody take away i mean tim allen doesn't have a history on twitter but please tell me they took his twitter away too i certainly hope so there's there's a qualitative difference between tim allen and roseanne barr that there's just no getting away from that so interesting is that there's going to be a temptation to acquaint the comedy that roseanne had on her television show where she had an entire team of writers who were really trying to get into the psyche of a middle america voter i actually did a good job at making jokes from our perspective outside of the coasts and roseanne barr who really set some pretty troubling things on twitter i think that to your point about tim allen you know network executives will write off the roseanne audience at their own peril because that audience wasn't tuning in for conspiracy theories about pizza gay nine eleven they were tuning in for what really was decent comedy and i think that the comedy the roseanne show presented it was the products of a lot more than just roseanne the actress so yeah good riddance to her sort of bigotry and racism but what she tapped into what the writers of that show tapped into is very real yeah i i agree with that and and one of the things that is lost in the conversation about roseanne i think rightfully lost at this point in the last twenty four hours but has been lost and i i had talked about it before on on some tv appearances and whatnot was everybody forgets remember she was really a strong advocate for lgbt causes and introduced that topic in a in a very sensitive way to a national audience back in her first run i mean so it's not all bad but boy gosh you can't come out and make just blatant racist statements and for people to defend that or in the case of our president to somehow make it about himself philip wegmann how did this how how is president trump able to make everything about himself it has nothing to do with him what we're talking about i mean i guess.
