"START WITH. You agree with me that the top players not playing college basketball actually not good for the NBA. Now don't agree with you. I think this is great for the NBA. And it's going to obviously have consequences at the collegiate level but this intended shot was really at the NBA Lavar Australia. That was starting to poach that same collegiate talent and they were foregoing their college experience to go to Australia for a year didn't make it to the NBA NBA realize that. Hey the only way we could fix. This is to really up to Anne in terms of compensation nor for five hundred thousand for the top players and also not just get better prospects for better people. Let's get them around some coaching. Let's get them off the court and life skills academies and really groomed him for their experience in the NBA. The collegiate experience it turns a college basketball was already being suppress was already being sabotaged by doing. We're not getting four year. Starters that our top collegiate athletes prospects anymore. Those are the one and done and a one and done. You're not getting life skills. You're going to a meaningless class studying astrology. That won't help you going forward. You're not learning anything off the court and then on a court a lot of evaluators say you have to open up. A prospect from their collegiate ballgame. Because of how the collegiate gave is played past half remedy perimeter pass path past. Run down the shot clock finally shoot and then you get to the NBA. You have to really open up that package and really let that play play itself out so I just think that the unintended consequence that the collegiate game continue to suffer and they weren't the initial target but they have to suffer but the NBA is. GonNa profit report it's good potentially great for the NBA. It's obviously bad for the NCWA but collegiate sports and collegiate basketball did this to itself by being like newspapers refusing to adapt or die. The idea that they're now open to the idea of guys being able to utilize their images for their own. Benefit is a little too late and so I don't think I don't look at the NBA is having to solve the NC double A.'s problems. The issue was that they had the best players. Were not going to college if they weren't if they weren't going to the G. League or they weren't they were all going overseas. Rj Hamson Lamelo Ball. James Wiseman did go and played three. Games got a twelve game suspension and said. It's not worth waiting that out to play Anthony Edwards. Nba Fans couldn't pick him out of a lineup. As of right now wiseman Lamelo ball and an Edwards are the top three picks in this NBA draft. So ideally I'd love to see the NC AA as a of exposure for players coming to the NBA. But the reality is that model is dead and gone. Kids are deciding now. I don't need that so the NBA. Now has the opportunity to create exposure for people to get to know the kids coming to get to know greed where they wouldn't have if they were going to the NBA. Nobody's seen Lamelo ball play over there. Nobody saw RJ Hampton. Play over there. Again I love the idea of college basketball being the platform that takes kids to the NBA and utilizing that to build their brand in their exposure. But Zion Williamson was a brand and was a youtube highlight before he got to do duke help. Yes but IT DIDN'T MAKE ZION. And certainly nobody was watching the Anthony Edwards at Georgia. So I believe that this is simply realizing the situation adjusting to modern times and saying look if the talents go play. Let's have the talent play for us. We're all in agreement that the NC AA in college basketball is dying of self inflicted wounds bad leadership. Lack vision totally agree with that. I here's where we disagree the NBA should be trying to help the NCWA fix itself because there's great benefit. I'm just sorry John Williamson was a nice little youtube story. He was the second or third best prospect. Come coming out of high school. Duke made him a superstar and a guy that could drive television rating. The branding and the exposure and the height comes from participating in college basketball. Which has one hundred years worth of? History has a fan base a passionate loyal fan base this pathway program if the NC Double A. Were smart and if the NBA were smart they should be partnering together and giving up their top collegiate players for the summer to work with the NBA and the G. League and the Summer League or whatever pay the kids. The top players participated in that during the summer. And then send the kids back to college basketball and let them continue to build their brand in a system that's already built the G. League is never going to create a Dick Phi Tau. Who's a great person to help college? Basketball players build their brand again. Not as Jay Bilas these other people that these television networks have a system built around college basketball. We're going to blow all that up and none of these kids will ever come to the NBA with the kind of hype that John Williamson head. Certainly with the kind of hype. That Magic Johnson Larry Bird Michael Jordan Bra. When you start looking at why Lebron James has never been able to catch Michael Jordan as a brand or as a shoe endorsing. He didn't have the college basketball experience. He didn't come in with the kind of brand and packets that other superstar college players have have brought to the NBA the NBA benefits from college basketball. They should put these guys in a head lot and help them fix college basketball. Don't let just college basketball down a vine of its own stupidity. There's bitter it's why the NFL draft just had sixteen million people. Watch it. It's why we all know who Jordan love is. It's why we know who any of these guys is why we Jonesboro any of them because of college football ourselves I see you shaking your head. How do you disagree with that? I think your argument is eaten. Hisself comparisons analogous one in in football. You have to be twenty years old. Three years removed from high school because of that mandate then you allow the hype machine and take course but in in College Basketball. That's not the case. I the NBA negotiated with the NBA APA and couldn't come to a conclusion. How the deal with the one and done rue so basically in college you're dealing with a one year sensation he's going to leave and the NBA was trying to figure out. Hey Do we have to force these guys to go? Because the two year rule didn't work so a lot of infighting between the three entities they'd never came to a resolution. Then if you talked about the marketing of the hype coming out of college. These guys hype is being suppressed more so than ever think about it who who goes into the tournament and actually wins it of late. Villanova's Virginia's the teams that have three four year. Starters on guess what those are not the best prospects. People were skipping that live. Like Lamelo ball will because they're like why? Go through this process and try to do team building for hype exercise. That is GONNA prove futile. You can still get hype eggs. Not even go to the college let alone. You're saying Zaylon.

"Me back Aaron Rodgers at thirty six thirty seven. I think still has a lot of value in the national football league or if the colts hat and made a deal for Philip rivers my God I to me. They would be trying to go all in on. How can we get A-rod to Indianapolis with the team? We think is ready to win. Now he could be our quarterback for the next four years a-rod still has a tremendous amount of value. And while he has it I think he's going to force his way out of Green Bay in the next twelve months. I can't see that happening. You gotTA understand one. Your Love was a project and that project needs grooming grooming. Can't be any better place than under air rogers in that situation. If you're going to hand over the baton to they're still the jury out of Jordan. Love is even going to live up to the hype that he has he had. He had a bad last year at Utah State. We understand you. Lost his top. Three receivers as coaches see all those things considered is still was the reach to some that Jordan. Love will be gone. So if you're Aaron Rodgers you don't have to look over your shoulder necessarily because love is not that close to you. There is rooting motivation to get them close to you because they like his personality better than yours. Air Rogers but the production is yet to be seen so I can't see Aaron Rodgers being in a place emotionally so disturbed that he wants to leave a situation that he helped create. I don't think he's forced out does he. I think this is part of a bigger plan. It's a bigger plan for the Green Bay. Packers Bill. The kind of team that they feel is necessary to be able to compete in this new. Nfc actually in this NFL. I think when they took those two sevens against the San Francisco Forty niners Matt. The floor had to look at his mentor. Pummeling him with the running game and the Shanahan system which is that outside zone run and the stretch bootlegs and play action combination. Here's what no one will talk about when it comes to air rushes. Aaron Rodgers is difficult to game plan for because the majority of his plays come off the script so when you play caller it is hard to call plays. When your quarterback likes to improvise. We saw last year with met in the floor. We saw it in previous years. Mike McCarthy what we're nail seeing coaches have a tough time coachee number twelve and so is you can't coaching you replace him as before is bringing in Jordan La Nha Dylan and some of these other guys so they can run the system that they WANNA run. He has success when he saw in Atlanta we cow Shanahan. Having success he saw cows. Janney in Sean mcvay success with the Rams and the forty niners respectively run into system. He wants to run the system. And if Air Rogers won't comply you will get out the way enjoy love. Run it the way that he sees fit limit. I'm going to tell you the other thing I think is missing here is look Matt Leflore and the general manager of the Green Bay Packers Brian. Kuna they believe Jordan. Love is a great quarterback because they went up in the draft to go getting when they really didn't have to yes he had a bad last year Utah State. I'm not comparing him to this guy. But there is another quarterback who had a bad senior year and was dogged by rumors. He was a party boy and he failed to the bottom of the first round of the draft is named Dan Marino. He had a lot of high after doing year fell to the bottom of the draft. The Miami Dolphins got him. Don Shula believed any. I'm not calling Jordan love the next Dan Marino but clearly to me Matt Leflore and these guys believe in him and think he can play in perform at a high level. Everybody that got drafted. There's a mystery about him who knows what they're going to live up to the hype but we know the Green Bay really believed in this guy and they're gonNA bend over backwards. Do everything in their power to make him successful. Let's move to this final question as it relates to Aaron Rodgers if he does not win another super bowl before the end of his career. Who WOULD YOU BLAME? The packers organization are Aaron Rodgers for that failure. You could argue either side. Had the packers given huff support or has a-rod has been too difficult to a fit into a team environment and do what Tom Brady did. In Green Bay Marcellus. Who would you blame the organization? Roger where he said I could blame either side. How about blame no side? I mean Damn. He got a championship. And if we look around a-rod has only been a starter for twelve years. Yeah he'd been League fifteen years but only a starter for twelve years and half of those. Tom Brady Stone Championships. So you down a six. Then you get paid medicated couple. They're down the four. You get you get drew. Brees out the data three. The point is let's blame probability. Let's brain the math. But this whole notion that he didn't have enough weapons around when I'm watching.
The Skinny on Brown Fat
"Be surprised to know from a brief introduction that we have different facts in our bodies white take brown fat and the Brown is sometimes referred to as Beige or Brown adipose tissue but white fat is probably the factory to be familiar with white fat cells. Have have a single lipid droplet and the lodge fat droplets stores your energy around the body and as we know too much. White fat isn't a good thing. It forms from from taking an extra calories and it can lead to obesity. Higher Risk of heart disease and diabetes for example was Brown. Fat Differs to White Fast because his stores energy at a smaller space and the self contained many small lipid droplets. Not that of one large. It's also packed with Owen Rich. Might Conrad which it's how it gets. Its Brown color and Brown. adipose tissue can dissipate significant amount of chemical energy through uncoupled respiration and he he production and the heavens by a process called Thermo Genesis so Brown Fat Burns Energy and produces people predominantly have brown fat in areas including routing on neck's all codes kidneys and spinal cold and when activated by a cooler temperatures. Brown fat uses sugar and fat from the blood to generate heat in the body. So we know that one way to burn energy rather is free exercise obviously Brown adipose tissue also contributes to energy use. This why is quite fascinating. Because it's the type of fat that actually helps us burden more energy as it dispels energy as heat so it's able to potentially help us counterweight game. So how can we increase our levels of Brown fat. According to a twenty fourteen study conducted by the National Institutes of Health Research is which was then published in the journal Diabetes. I spending time in the cold may show Brown fat more active. And it can actually cause you to grow new brown fat cells. and this cold exposure activates the Brown adipose with host tissue Associated increased energy turnover and lower body. Fat Mass. There are also experiments conducted on mice. That showed that adding more brown factor to mice has been found to increase the rate. It was burnt energy reduced. The amounts of fats on their bodies and protect them from Diet induced. Obesity said it sounds pretty amazing. Leasing if you ask me. Further studies on mice and Brown adipose tissue also found that a protein called arison made help transform white fat to Brown and humans do producer sin and research uncovered the people who are sedentary produce. Follow letter this protein compared to those who exercise often so if people are doing intense aerobic interval training then they might have more chance to transforming their white fat to the more beneficial brown fat again. Another big arguments as to why are exercise. Size and health and fitness is so important further research obviously does need to be conducted into Brown. Fat and research is really still trying to understand it and understand the genes that control. How White Tim Brown fat develops in one study? Scientists engineered mice to be born with very little brown fat by limiting a protein called type one. ABM Receptor Sepah but when it comes to the cold the mice created brown fat from their white fat and this shows the power of recruitment office. That cold exposure can actually help us increase all brown fat fat levels but again this isn't as a house and start taking ice baths and turning down your thermostat. It needs a little more research to be done in Egypt. Consult your doctor as well. But but the core principles obviously we still are basic diet and exercise but also finally want to leave is on this note that there is a research going on into a fat grafting getting procedure to convert White Brown fat. So Columbia engineering team led by someone who is a professor biomedical engineering. They've developed a simple innovative method. That converts Brown outside the body. So this happens. Outside the body and they re-implant a hint to a patient and this fat grafting technique involves harvesting fats from under the skin. And then re transplanting it into the same patient wall reconstructive purposes and the report in which was published in scientific traffic reports said they successfully converted hot unharvested white fat to Brown fat in the lab which shows its potential use as therapy so be interesting to see the space I developed but again want done by balanced diet exercise adequate rest. We we've seen from this as well now. Exercise Not being trained allies can also help Lavar Brown fat level so again encourage you to get out and get your daily dose of exercise but

There's a lot of debate around just how bad the fashion industry is for the environment. It's complex multi layered supply chain touches agriculture her livestock petroleum mining construction shipping and manufacturing and the advent of fast fashion the mass manufacturing. I mean if cheap trendy clothes hasn't helped but she's in particular have a terrible rap. She shoe ashamed me because they essentially never biodegrade they just live on and on and on and twenty billion pairs of shoes are manufactured captured every single year. So where does that leave all birds. Joey had an enormous amount of expertise here. But we believed we could do it differently that we could bring New Materials to beer and footwear And we could focus deeply On them and innovate around them. We could do that and not just because it's the right thing to do but the but do it because it made more comfortable products and a bitter experience and I think that's a really key in early. Incite people die by sustainability ability that by great products and it's incumbent on sort of business to sort of change and make things in bid away and that was a really key plank for the way that we were working and we sit off to do that and we did with one material and wool. And we've added another in in Eucalyptus fiber and subsequently again. A soul mate from sugarcane and at belief is that it natural materials the pathway to bid a practice for the ministry. They're certified the core and you've stayed true to ear commitment. Not only in the construction of the shoes. Are you trying to be environmentally sensitive. But what about all up and down the supply chain. It's a a lot to do with certifications. You can't be everywhere so you need to invest in materials that You know the best in the business and lean and certifications that are meeting the right type of environmental standards and we do it in the case of I. Wo- would Z Q Bone Sucre with a A sugar and if a C- Fard Stewardship Council for FRY EUCALYPTUS So those things really important and then you know you want to. You want to also sort of measure and understand your Kaban. So that was. That was another big thing and I you know. I think it's a really key point because the topic of sustainability is a really complicated and confusing. And I think if we went went around this room and asked people like what does sustainability mean. Some people might say it's about what you Jin land usage and others might say e quality and someone else is GonNa say Indiv- life or transport for And and the reality is all those a true and important but they ladder up to the singular idea that Kaban is the. Is the school cod. That we're going to be judged by as we as we work our way out of this environmental Crosses that were and so that was kind of a key insight for us as we've as we've gone through some measuring Carbon Kaban deeply all the way through US applied China something that we've we've done largely from the beginning. Let's talk about the Amazon controversy. Were you surprised that they made made all birds knockoffs and how how pissed off or you know. It's not the first company to being to being imitated by them to you. Yeah you know I. There was frustration. I mean I think we've we've had so many copycats since we've launched launched its been mind-blowing and I'm going to north of twenty at least An eye that cropped up at a regular on a regular basis. But when the world's you know one of the world's most valuable Oh companies gazette and what we sort of thought was I was a little bit unfair way We were disappointed. And more importantly I think it coincided pretty pretty closely with Some of the urgency that that consumers and customers are feeling around the environment sustainability and they copied the design and they done copied materials girls. And so we were thinking okay. We'll phys copied the design. But you know what would be really great as if you copy you. Copy the spirit of what we're doing and in fact Joe are we. Your partner posted an open letter on medium to Amazon last month. He invited the company to Steal Your Sustainability Practices. Not just your designs designs and are you optimistic. That they'll take you up on that and one person asked me to ask you if you've ever heard from Jeff Bezos after he stole your shoe We haven't but we hope to end genuinely mean. Our out absolves and made from sugarcane when we launched that material innovation. We made it console so that everyone could use a fact. I think that's an interesting point. Ten that you share your innovation with anyone because you would love a lot of people to use news these techniques and other ships and other products in general absolutely and we did that not just because we're good guys completely understand that the topic OPEC challenge of sustainability is not going to be solved by all birds or even by one brand. It's going to be solved by lots of companies sharing best practice and working together. And so we've understood that as being foundational but we also is that this new material the more people that use that the cheaper it would become. And that's what's happened now twenty companies. I believe planning to use this material this year so we must have missed the Amazon. Why don't use that to? That'll be great. And so that was the source of Joe is litter and it went. Well you've got sixteen retail stores worldwide and you're opening up twenty new retail locations. I guess in Twenty Twenty Yup correct is really exciting and retails being phenomenal for us so interesting because you know that other people are going the other direction right And not opening up I guess yes. There's a combination of what people are doing with bricks and mortar stores versus online shopping. You feel like you want people to have this kind of experience of seeing the actual shaw product absolutely. I mean everyone the myth about retail dying or being did I think has been greatly exaggerated and Particularly cleaned the case of shoes. Everyone's got a childhood memory of going to a shoe store and trying on shoes with that middle device that knows the name of and and so we he was one of the knows no knows the thing And and so we wanted to do it. I think we'd be blown away by just how much how customers have wanted to come and experience and touch the product and the US really really deep questions and then the other thing that's been amazing. Is You know the real innovation. Opportunity is with the people that work in retail. Who for the most pop- not treated all that well and so you know we've tried to really think about the training uh-huh and and and investing in the people that were stools? And that's just an amazing opportunity that we just beginning to uncover and we're excited about sixteen stores in the twenty more that will add and The opportunity to Mike working at retail. Something that people are really proud of so workplace. Culture is clearly really really important to you before we came out you were talking about how difficult recalled it is especially as you grow and expand and more more and more people are working for you. What about four hundred ninety now? It's summer summer around the and yet as I mean we've you always have little speed bumps and I I think it was it was it was easy in some ways when you have on name and you knew they families and you knew what what was going on and you Steve was breaking up with his girlfriend or whatever it was and then when it gets bigger just how do you scale the things that you as founded founders. Think a really important and she those messages And create the kind of culture that when we have twenty five people in Shanghai in an office there how you know how do they take what we think is important but shape it into their own version of. What's important and I I'd be lying if I said we've got that worked out but you know what I do now is if if you get that but right even over and above the product innovation the design? You go a long way being successful so we think a lot about it a little bit. with Minneapolis. That we don't you'd have before I let him go so I asked him if he had any advice for aspiring entrepreneurs out there and his answer was well pretty honest. I think the entrepreneurship has been sort of romanticize normally enormously difficult and I've been very very lucky I talk about my family because I've leaned on them To get you know. Get off the ground..

"Fashion the mass manufacturing of cheap trendy. Andy close hasn't helped but she's in particular. Have a terrible rap. She shoe shamed me because they essentially never biodegrade. They just live on and on and on and twenty billion pairs of shoes are manufactured every we single year. So where does that leave all birds. Joey had an enormous amount of expertise here. But we believed we could do it differently that we could bring New Materials to beer and footwear And we could focus deeply On them and innovate around them. We could do that not just because it's the right thing to do but but do it because it made more comfortable products in a bitter experience and I think that's a really key people die by sustainability that byproducts and it's incumbent on sort of business to sort of change and make things bit away and that was a really key kind of plank for the way that we were working and we set off to do that and we did it with one mature took wool. And we've added another in in Eucalyptus Fiber and subsequently again a sole made from sugarcane and at belief is that natural patrol materials The pathway to bid a practice for the fashion industry. They're certified core and you've stayed true to your commitment Not only in the construction of the shoes. Are you trying to be environmentally sensitive. But what about all up and down the supply chain. It's a lot to do with certifications vacations. You can't be everywhere so you need to invest in materials that are the best in the business and and and lean and certifications that are meeting the right type of environmental standards and we do it in the case about wolves Z Q Bone Sucre with Sugar and if a C- Far Stewardship Council for Eucalyptus. So those things are really important. And then you know you want to You want to sort of measure and understand Kaban so that was that was another big thing and I you know. I think it's really key point because the topic of sustainability is a really complicated and confusing one and I think if we went rent went around this room and people at what does sustainability mean. Some people might say it's about water usage in Lan- usage and others might say equality and someone else is going to say end of life or transport And and and the reality is all those a true and important but they let her up to the singular idea that Kaban is the. Is the school cod. That we're going to be judged by as we as we work our way out of this environmental Crosses that were in and so that was kind of a key kind of insight for us. We've as we've gone through some measuring. Kaban deeply he played all the way through US applaud. China's something that we've we've done largely from the beginning. Let's talk about the Amazon controversy. Were you surprised that they made all birds arts knockoffs and how how pissed off for you. You know it's not the first company Dubin to being imitated by them him to you yeah. I was frustration. I mean I think we've we've we've had so many copycats since we've launched it's been mind-blowing and I want to say this north twenty at least And I cropped up a regular Uh on a regular basis but when the world's you know one of the world's most valuable companies gazette and and what we thought was I was a little bit of an unfair way We were disappointed. And more importantly I think it coincided pretty closely with you know Some of the urgency that that consumers and customers are feeling around the environment sustainability and they copied the design and they done copied materials. And and so we're thinking okay. Fears fear copied the design. But you know what would be really great as if he copied You copy the spirit of what we're doing and in fact Joey Your partner CNOR posted an open letter on medium to Amazon last month. He invited the company to Steal Your Sustainability Practices. Not just your designs and are you optimistic. That they'll take you up on that and one person asked me to ask you if you've ever heard from Jeff Bezos after he stole your shoe We haven't but we hope to and genuinely mean our out absolves made from sugar cane and when we launched that material innovation we made it open source so that everyone everyone could use it in fact I think that's an interesting point ten that you share your innovation with anyone because you would love a lot of people to use these these techniques and other shifts and other products in general absolutely and we do that not just because we're good guys when we completely understand that. The topic of the challenge of sustainability is not going to be solved by birds or even by one brand. It's going to be solved by lots of companies sharing his practice and working together. And so we've understood that as being foundational national but we also know. Is that this new material. The more people that used it the cheaper it would become. And that's what's happened and is now twenty companies. I believe a planning to use this material this year. Yes Oh the Mister Bay is awesome Amazon. What it used to? That'll be great. And so that was the source of Joe is later on and it went well. You've got sixteen retail stores worldwide. And you're opening a new retail locations. I guess in twenty twenty cricket is really exciting and retail has been phenomenal for US interesting. Because you you know that's other people are going the other direction right And not opening up. I guess there's a combination nation of what people are doing with bricks and mortar stores versus online shopping. You feel like you want people to have this kind of experience of seeing the actual product. Absolutely I mean everyone. You know the myth about retail dying being did I think has been greatly exaggerated and particularly in the case of shoes news. Everyone's gotTa childhood memory of going to a shoe store and trying on shoes with that middle device that no one knows the name of and and so we want is that no one knows the thing and And so we always knew we wanted to do it. I think we've been blown away by just how how much how customers have wanted to come and experience and touch the product and then us really really deep questions and then the other thing. That's been amazing. Is You know the real innovation opportunity is with people that work in retail. Who for the most part and not treated all that well and so we've tried to really think about the training and and and and and investing in the people that work for us in stores and that's just an amazing opportunity that we just beginning to uncover and we're excited about the sixteen stores in the twenty more that will add and You know the opportunity to make doc working at all. Birds Retail something people really proud of so workplace. Culture is clearly a really really important to you and before we came out you were talking about how difficult it is especially as you grow and expand and more more and more people are working for you. What about four hundred ninety now? It's a summer some summer on the and Oh yes I mean we. Yeah we've we've you have little speed bumps and I. I think it was it was it was easy in some ways when you have nine and you knew they families and you know what was going on and can you. Steve was bragging was girlfriend or whatever it was and then when it gets bigger just how do you scale. The things that you as found is a really important and share those messages And create the kind of culture that when we have twenty five people in Shanghai office there how you know how do they take what we think is important but shape it into their own version of. What's important and I I'd be lying if I said we've got that all worked out but you know what I do now is if if you get that but right even over and above the product and the innovation the design? You go a long way to being successful so we think a lot about it a little bit with mini- ounces that we don't have before I let him go. I asked him and if he had any advice for aspiring.

"Brown was eager to see if his shoe idea had any traction so he went back home to New Zealand. Shot a little video on a friend's sheep farm and posted it along along with the six pairs of wool shoes.

"Recently had the chance to interview Tim Brown for our very first. Next question live an intimate innovation focused series in front on of a live audience in New York City. The last one I saw you interviewed Sheryl Sandberg on stage and it was pretty intense. Abuse is I was a little nervous. I let's the friendly worry. No I think you're not in the hot seat like facebook was. I went pretty easy on him. We started with his background. He grew up in Wellington New Zealand but came to the states for college attending the University of Cincinnati for design. Eventually he went to the London School of Economics. But what's unique about. Tim's background is that he spent the better part of his twenties as a professional athlete athlete when the rest of his friends were grinding away and offices. Tim was on the field playing soccer. Or as it's known across the pond football you you know. I don't think I was a natural athlete by any stretch but I was determined and I was competitive and I realized that a very heightened to lose really really to lose and And so that became a kind of a theme of my sporting career and I kept edging towards doing a little bit more a little bit more and then you you know the goals keep expanding and then all of a sudden you know. You're you're at a World Cup in two thousand and ten so it was just incredible journey and I was. I was lucky. It was a journey that set the the flight path to all birds. It was like a boyhood dream to be able to play football professionally and then you realize like anything else. It's a job and the some great things about it and some not so the good things about it. One of the great things about it. was you free gear and And I was sponsored by one of the big sports where companies that. I don't like to name and I uh-huh and I want and and it's a frigate and it was. It was cool. It was awesome and this idea was really born out of that. Everything had goes I felt like a kind of a walking billboard at times for this Brandon and certainly in the context that I was living in it was very very hard to find a simple shoe without without that logos toy rather naively while I was still very much focused on soccer. Need deepen in my career Sit UPS Transi. If I could make one what Tim wanted in a shoe was something simpler. No bells no whistles. No fuss a designed that didn't need to be thrown out an updated every year and he. He didn't think he was the only one who wanted that. Did the would need another shoe Brin. I definitely saw a kind of a white space for for a different type of design philosophy but the ruins saw came win. One of my off seasons. I flew to foot refectory that I've found online and I walked into.

NFL career here in which he was selected to nine pro bowls he finished his career with over a thousand receptions and one hundred touchdowns he is enshrined in the pro football hall of fame and it is an honor for me to say Tim Brown welcome to First-class Fatherhood. Thank you very much yeah. Let's start here. How many kids do you have. And how old are they. I have four kids and thirty year old son and a twenty one year old daughter and a sixteen year old boy wardrobe twins. Wow okay very cool. Yeah I have four children myself. My oldest is thirteen so I got a ways to go yet. what type of sports porch activties when they all into you know my oldest. really never wants to do sports because sports thing that sort of kept that away so he you know he was a bookworm apology major in college. He's a nurse now children's hospital here in Dallas so you know he was really not into sports. Whatever the other three were heavily into sports. My daughter played volleyball. I ran track and the twins you know cheerleading and the only way to play football basketball track and now is just concentrating on track a little bit but I think it senior year next year. He'll get back out takeover sports so we kinda have no doubt about that yeah very cool. Do you ever get involved with coaching or is that too much of a distraction that you could enjoy from the sideline. Yeah I coach my son's eighth grade football team much three years ago. I quite frankly there's five of the best of my life and having off off to coach kids had successful football season and to be there was just on was was a hotline for me no doubt about it and and you know there's a good time but yeah you know the girl those girls sports but yeah with my son and that certainly got out there yeah awesome all right. Tim If you could just take a minute here and hit my listeners but a little bit about your background yeah well. you know the the fifth of the sixty. It's it's a baby in the family for about seventeen years my parents to try to that. They want to have another kid but so I grew up in a family and my mom with the missionary church mass or we win Friday nights which I wasn't playing football on Friday nights. I was always in Church of course all day Sunday. We have Sunday morning service Sunday afternoon service and Sunday evening service so that's just how accurate but so you know I think from that standpoint you know he's up my parents you. They were married for fifty two years. It's dad passed away back in two thousand eleven. you know. I think their main thing for us was. Let's get an much case. You know they didn't have that opportunity or at US. That's all they talk about. So you know so a lot of my decisions over the years I've been based on. You know. not trying to be better than what my dad but you know trying to. He was able to go okay. You know and certainly wouldn't be up to go to University of incapable came around it. was you know we care less about football. All we thought about was education and you know at the door to go to college. I've ever paresis what real football so you get them back in didn't get the works so and with that that mindset I checked off go on to the University of those and I think that much well for me because I wasn't worried about mistakes. I made a football field or even when I play great focus was was Spoi- Wurley on on graduating on time and I called and and all that changed with great little champion and when he came Andy Andy Basically told me that he thought it'd be the best player in the country and because of my attitude towards football at that time you know I tell them. You got the wrong guy coach. You know oh I mean I'm here to education. Go back home. My husband sweet thinking church has six kids belong my life you know and he said well you make all that what you're going to be the best player to catch here so so and you know two years later best player in the country and Heisman trophy your kids. Rafter Tourist Rather League you play seventy years. NFL ended up in the hall of fame sort of when I last nineteen eighty-four head adding to the other day but I think we have good intentions man you try and do the right thing. Great things happen. so that's a plus. I took it back yeah. What an incredible journey that you had. I love the fact that you keep God first in your life. I do the same myself here. I feel like the combination nation of God being removed from so much of our schools in society combined with the fatherless crisis that we have really has a lot of devastating results in our country. Are you still involved with mentoring teams and kids with the athletes and entertainers or kids yeah most definitely. I'm actually wearing a shirt right now. I'm driving another world. I I do a Lotta stuff. FCA around Dallas and certainly around the country. I have mentioned many camp up in California that I do every year for twenty years now so we have certainly tried to keep on those two that because you know anytime. There's not to speak just kids. you want to you want to get that out there without so but for me it is awfully you know the most important thing. I can do at this particular point because I don't believe that God put me here. You know came up -tunities. Choose the hall of Famer and all this other stuff for me to just sit on it and to throw it up because you know I got this jacket. I got this raining. Okay all this stuff that could easily be going tomorrow but they'd be on the record but all that that tangible stuff can be gone but you know. I certainly believe they took here to be able to let folks know men women boys and girls that you know Oh. Hey you know I'm here. I'm here for you and I give you all the sounds neat you try to give it right back to me and whatever way you see fit that you that I think is what it has to be there. Yeah very well said and then you didn't you didn't play football as a high school freshman. I know your mom didn't want you to and then you kinda snuck in there. I guess it was yourself more. I schoff more years schools and a lot of parents that they they're on the fence about letting their kids play just because of all the different reports for the C. T. stuff so so what what's your opinion eighty nine like a young kids playing tackle football. What's a good age. You think that I'm GONNA START WELL I. I actually thought it I I was playing. My Mom. Just knows oh spicy didn't find that out. I was playing a kid my myself and my dad had some some going on and 'cause you know basically practice during school hours fraction rex not school and I been because I was in the marching band. She just felt that I was packing much ban after school and before and myself year you know I had a couple of games early on and was named Sophomore sensation for the month of September and Oliver your friends will call and they're telling newspaper and she came to me thinking that I do some wrong and she was searching through all the bad parts of the newspaper. Look its name and finally I feel it. You check the sports page and I was on the front page of the High School Section of the sports page anyway so that that you know an argument southern suit that that that was me but I don't know about that but yeah he did the right thing and she was all right with the for the most part you know always wanted me to get football but you know not to report where she kept me. Yeah that's incredible Tim and what what type of what type of disciplinarian are you as a father. You know I mean My father was a very strict disciplinarian. He was he rented and if you didn't know anything all the time but he was just one of those men that were each slow. That was no pulse talk no dog no. Oh anything that was that was whether you like it or not. You may walk out the house. Muslim and I walked away from here in London so low that he can be heard. Eh Won't be a problem but you know so and I didn't necessarily have a problem with that because you know if I nine ten eleven years. Oh you know they didn't have to worry about being more I was. I was straight laced. I understand one thing. I remember the last thing I got. My Mom told me all you have to do who is do what we do at you'll never get into and if it's a wrong thing then that's that'd be on us and I you know I saw that. You do everything in my life. I guess my wife I would like to do a little bit more but other than that you know my when my with my teaches at school you know I just did what they actually do. End Up picking it up by then I couldn't. I could never be wrong and that sort. I love you know is the way that so all that man. You know you know these kids. These days is so different right. You know it's hard to you. You know it's worth and to have the last word sometimes but so I will engage them at some conversations but then you know enough is enough. They come and so forth. Where would you say you know what what's been. Chad or you know when it's the final word is a word and you know. I think they understand that about me. They understand that I inflexible at the same time when I say that's it you know at you get along very well and it all right.

"And on the flip side. What has you excited every morning? Oh, the short answer is everything. I think the boating business in an in an brand is hot, and it should be. And so you're wise if you're wise if you're doing it, right? I think thinking about the teen things you could be doing Bitta at any given time, and certainly that sort of we know we've we've had some success and so much to go so many more things to do the coming in. I mean, again that team thing will come back to it. But that's the group of people we've seen Buddha's really special. And and that's the fun the fun. But and with tackling something that's serious and hod, but there's a little after that sense of being part of part of that team is is this. There's nothing better than that. What about if you could go back in time, give young Tim Brown advice in his early twenties? What advice would that be oh, keep going trust your instincts? I the number of times in early nearly sort of quit. And if it wasn't for people close to me, particularly my family go for now wife to just keep on going, wouldn't I wouldn't have got here and and tr- trust trust in my instincts, even more than maybe I have surrounded myself with people that I I wanna hang out with inspire me. I think sometimes it took a long time to kind of wick that out to sort of say to the way that I kinda, you know, designed my lawf-. And so the confidence might be to do that. But look, I just feel very very lucky. The Ginny that I've had you know, through sport, and the now with the business, and the people that I've met and now, you know, working with and fabulous things. I feel very lucky. Can you talk about saying no bit more at something? I'm learning to do. And I'm hearing a lot of people are successful. I think there's an aunt to that. I don't know that I have all the answers by any stretch. But I, you know, you've got a hundred units of energy cool. And how you deploy those is very important, and you need to to think carefully about about with a with I go, and the vast majority will be family. I think if you're doing it, right? That's true. And the we work, and then this friends, and how you think about that is is something that you need to be careful with and it's very easy to deploy those points of energy, if you fully my metaphor through in the wrong spice, and so you have to think about that. Especially in San Francisco. Oh, look, there's someone told me there's always another Email to rot. There's always another thing to do. And you know, I think if we go back to sport, I think the wrist is just as important as the performance, and so you need to be you just need to be full about you use of time to maximize performance. And again, that's something that I look on by think a lot about. I'm certainly not sure heavily the ounces. But I think being intentional about about the way use time. And when you work, and how you were sort of really important to that Tim Brown. Thanks so much. Real pleasure. They hit thanks so much. Thanks. Hey, everybody. I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you all for listening to the podcast and say that we wanna listen to you. So if you have any questions any dream guests, we are all ears.
