How Beauty Insider Tina Hedges Created LOLI, an Environmentally Sound Brand
"Career has taken her. From the perfume counter at macy's inside a conic brands like Christian Dior Estee Lauder Al. but after almost two decades beauty shetty personal crisis that inspired her to start lally beauty the I zero waste organic food grade approach beauty we talk about her a Pitney the one thing she asks every investor she meets with and why she is so committed to getting this, right. Teen almost two decades in the beauty industry and then you had both a health scare and day crisis of conscience. What happened I had spent about almost about to get decades or so traveling the world in pretty high powered marketing roles and innovation roles for big companies in the industry pretty much helping, decide and create all the products in women's beauty cabinets and. started. Simultaneously, I had this weird across section of I started having all these other immune issues and systemic allergies. A No physician could sort of pinpoint what was really triggering it as well as went through early menopause. And I was in my mid thirties and no underlying health conditions for that and I started to think about. All of the products have been applying to my body from head to toe for almost two decades and I started thinking about all those buildup of toxins and chemicals, and I realized that I had been polluting my own body and simultaneously. I had this consciousness of wow. Not only have I been pushing into the world products filled with all these chemicals and nasty since and and carcinogens endocrine disrupters all of this you know really scary stuff but on top of that were blending all of that in eighty to ninety five percent water because most of your skin hair and body products are literally water you're paying for water. And then wrapping all that in single use plastic and when the world is running out of water, it's one of our most precious resources when the boy to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by twenty, twenty five. None of this makes any sense to me or None of that made any sense to me a when I had this convergence of the crisis of health and crisis consciousness. Once you had that a home moment what was the first thing you did to sort of take that idea and start? Making it an actual reality. So I had already left the corporate world and I had gone into the start world. I launched a very successful. vegan sulfate free hair brand. Actually I was the first to use reality TV show on Bravo a show called blow out about a hairstylist in La and his hair salon. But because of us sort of uniquely understood, it was basically an hour long infomercial. We turned the industry on dime because prior to that I mean it was super early days of reality to be. We're talking like two, thousand, four it was America's biggest loser where for the straight guy blow out and the apprentice those were the reality shows that were on at that time and I realized wait a second. This is a show about a hairstylist. Want we show him developing his own brand? and. Don't have done that. So we were the first do that. And the purpose of going back to that stories I know how difficult it is. To start a business especially as a minority Hispanic female founder over the age of thirty. So I was really scared to start this and I. Just. Kept finding excuses left a brighter I'm going to consult or help this person with their brand, and it finally got the place at I was just sitting there and I realized. What do I have to lose? What's the worst thing that could happen? So I- self-financed and out of my upper side small studio apartment I launched a test of Lawley and so that was the beginning. Lawley is the world's first zero waste organic food grade approach to beauty. I want break each part of that down what does it mean to be Zero Waste We go to farms and fairtrade cops around the world, and we find parts of organic food that are being wasted or being thrown away in the process. So for example, our Plum Elixir, we work with a organic farm four generation owned in France that grows a very rare plummets called the end tape them and sa- tiniest considered like the fog or caviar of plums it's it's quite unique. It's extremely potent in antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, and when they make prune juice or pitted prunes, they were throwing away the colonel. And the Patriarch the father of this owner of the farm. About ten years ago said wait. We, press avocado oil from the pit of an avocado. We press all sorts of oils from pits Robin Doyle, why can't we press an oil and organic food grade oil from the pit of the plum? And he literally invented it like they're no one had ever had plum oil, and then he worked with the French bent to get it organic certified and recognized as a food ingredient, and then we started working with them and realized how powerful it was for skin hair

"Then, one of the things as as bad as you can just be like, okay, I'm done here piece I am out I have to say I'm mystified by Dane Cook being the leader of this production I was confused by Dan Cook when he was wildly popular when we were in college and he was doing his comedian thing I didn't didn't Take him for being the leader of the fast times at Ridgemont high virtual table read with this group of ultra famous people So I also want to get a feeling for Dane Cook's vibe. I was just like who is this man these days but he seemed pleasant enough. He seemed happy to be emceeing. He seemed like a really great I'm MC. Okay I think that's great. I was not that curious. Did you catch the moment where Chrissy Teigen walk past John Legend's computer was like, what are you doing though but that's funny I do. She was like. She I think she genuinely didn't know about this and John Legend sitting down to do it and she was she looked very nice. She was around like read. Like a Rober address, she looked lovely and like she was like you talking to you and then she sees ever on the screen Oh my God and she runs away it was it was really funny and then Julia Roberts Jennifer Aniston discuss how they don't look as Nice when they're at home just hanging around the house so. Great. I, mean, that's nice. That's the stuff i. like it again to your point having celebrities all in one place. Of their own volition on their own terms with slightly better production values than you know your average reality or influence or instagram post I'm pro all of that I. Think I just Frankly Juliette I just learned that Borgen. The Danish TV show is finally on Netflix this week. It's been on ethics for several weeks but again, I just is not plugged into that particular corner of the Internet and I just wanted to be watching Morgan all of my free time, which was not that much because there's a lot going on I wanted to devote to bargain and too, and so I didn't watch this and I recommend to anyone who's interested and personally I would not go at the dubbing I. Would I was in, ask House the dubbing. So I had seen organ. Like many years ago via you know what? It wasn't the most legal of of ways. But I'm I'm a better person now. Okay and now, and the problem was that forever, you couldn't watch forget and you had to like buy the the DVD's. which I don't have a DVD player anyway. So I had seen it with the original version. Then I turned it on Fox and I didn't know there was going to be dubbing and I was very confused for four minutes and then I switched it back to data was up titles because That's just how I wanted to watch it. I gotTA check it out. People are raving about Borgen. Shop. Just other personal celebrity news though even come back to you in a few weeks time and preparation for the release of emily in Paris net flex, which is Darren. Star's new show starring. Collins. I did a lily collins deep dive World before I learned that she's dating Charlie McDowell son of Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen and that neither today and I really look forward to at one day soon, discussing this with you. I can't wait this was filmed in Paris, right? Oh. Yeah. Was it sure was yeah Oh wow I just can you imagine i? It's I follow one influence on instagram which I'm back on though I'm trying to be responsible about, but I'm a human being and. I follow one Frangieh influence her. I just what's happening in Paris through the eyes of this influence or who looks for sheep Bardo is just very different from my day to day experience. I am at a loss sometimes, but it will be nice to see Paris in in a fictional setting. Well, discuss it in a few weeks. It's finally out last topic of the day. Megan Harry News. You know what's a week without to Meghan? Harry News? Is it a week at all they? Their case against The Mail on Sunday continues they're suing associated newspapers, which is the publisher of the Mount Sunday in the mail online and as part of the proceedings, it came out that to quote the Duchess's lawyer, the claimant Meghan and her husband did not collaborate with the authors on the book nor were they interviewed for it nor do they provide photographs to the authors for the? Book the Book and question is finding freedom, which we have mentioned quite a few times and I think had just been operating under the assumption that they were somehow involved much like Diana was somehow involved in Andrew Morton's book her back in the ninety s I believe eighties can't remember but was a early nineties I believe rights and I saw that was not worthy. Yeah. There is it's very specific wording and I did read I couldn't sleep a couple of nights ago for you know. It's twenty twenty. That's why and so I've reread part of the Tina Brown book because that's what I do when I can't sleep I know it's very weird and I was rereading part of the Andrew Morton section and I. I think that there are a lot of different definitions of collaboration and I and I think this is a legal case and I. The two things I would say is number one used the law to the fullest sent that you can megan and Harriet and number two. I don't really think that there's anything wrong with a speaking to someone and letting your version of events go on like I I think there's just kind of the timing of this case and everything that's happened in their life, and the book is all like a bit confusing. kind of transitional moment for them, and also for their press strategy, which I continue to think is slightly muddled. And again, they're trying to they moved literally across the world and had to move again and are trying to figure out what a post royal life looks like. So you can understand why but I think it's just there's a lot of information coming all at once that I wish I had a or I think if I were them. Advising Impress Raji I like I'm looking forward to when I know what? Harry and Meghan or four and like what their next chapter is and what I can affirmatively invest attention in that for if that makes any sense and that obviously takes time but that's kind of my read on all of it. Yeah. I agree I think the wording of this stuff is very specific. There's so many other small things that happened like every day related to them on exhausted by can't imagine being that like just like to small examples. Harry his birthday. All the royal accounts posted pictures of Harry Willing Kate in like left Megan out. Then that's then that starts like a whole round of rumors about like who's mad who's not mad but the trying to say are hiring will talking harring Willard talking more than than they were before whatever yeah and then Jessica Rony like posted on instagram that she still friends with mega mega great friend and then deleted it shortly thereafter and it's just like..

"W tvn John says Tina John, Welcome in in mid year tax moves to consider, yes, tax move on a little reluctant to come on today with after that. First segment. You guys were wild. Well, don't be scared. Don't be scared. It's so funny People. People don't get it that we're messing around. Some people don't anyway, but you know different. Yes, I know. Junior leg. Yes. Well, let's talk about the mid year tax planning. After all, it is September fall has begun. I think today And so one of the things you wanna look at. You may not have brought about Is some charitable deductions. People want to give to charity all the time. And they realised that through the new cares act that they're limited and so what they're attempting to do is take the standard deduction. But there are some benefits under cares. It's we want to take a bank job because there's an above the line deduction. That's those are always the most valuable above the line deduction available up to $300 for donations for non itemizers. So you mean if you don't itemize? Don't get $300 deduction. And furthermore, through the new act, there's a new maximum on the amount of stuff you can give things not money and used to be. The guy was 60%. Now you give up 100% of your adjusted gross income, So there's a lot of room for charity for those folks. You're looking for something to do. And another one is There's the, uh We want to look about is the capital gains. And for some people they haven't thought about the capital games but recognize that you could save money if you plan your capital gains. And you could play them a of using the losses against Gaines and therefore not paying income tax or can use the gains against the losses by versa. And you could save a good deal of money. If you have to pay ordinary income tax on the short term gains. For example, your income tax could be up to 37%. We don't want that. But if you use the losses properly, get down to Capitol game losses. And so you have no in town. But you, Khun, um, plus up to another $3000 against ordinary inject. That's another one. Than the last one, which is a home run. And you might want to do this. If your child is younger that you know you may be said them away the camp of the summer and you paid for that, But now they don't go in Bordeaux. The campus closed. Let's suppose you have a parent or sibling or someone like that. You want to help you out, and they want to take care of your child because you have to go to work so you could happily pay them for their assistance. And the beauty of this is If you pay them on the 1st $3000, you can get a tax credit of 20%. So that's a pretty big deal. That'll save $600 real taxes that just for one child, But if you have to 20% on to sew those few things to look at for the mid year You got to get ready for tax planning before the year is up.

New Nintendo Switch Rumors
"Joining me today is Tina Amini. Sam Claiborne. Everybody and Justin. Davis. Scoop Scoop. With great show you this week we're and talk about who Sony has deemed worthy of free ordering a place should five. We've got new details on. Lord of the Rings. But I. Do but I yeah. I gotta say that was a great read. You did a great job Tim. Thank you. Thank you. I was very nervous. New Rumors. Actually let's let's go this route rumors about a new version of the switch intend to switch or not new, but new rumors have surfaced this week. This is according to a report from Economic Daily News. IDEON the new version of the squid. Is set to lodge at retail first quarter twenty, twenty, one early next year report claims to be informed by sources in the console supply chain stores. The new version of the switch will feature improved. And a better quality display. Like I said the rumors about the sort of thing or not new. Tina. What's your read on this one? How likely is this to come to pass? You might say there. You'd rumors Damon because you're right. It's been a kind of like a a suspicion for awhile and it would not be outside the norm of of what Nintendo could do in terms of making sure the sustaining the life cycle of the switch. I know a lot of people wanted a pro switch. There's obviously a lot of conversation around the power not exactly being up the speed in terms of the current generation. especially as we're entering in the next generation, it's kind of being more becoming more important for Nintendo to. Make sure that they can step up on a graphical level as well as the convenience level because there's so many gamers that love the option of having to play their game on switch rather than ps four or or the xbox because you can just take it around with you. It's it's incredibly flexible. So if they are able to increase up to like four K. support for instance I, think that's going to be the kind of thing that brings them a little bit up to speed as we head into the next generation. Now you sound a little quiet on my end I. Don't know if there's anything you can do on your end or Chris who's our td working behind the scenes maybe he can work on that. But to get some more of us on this Sam. I believe you said a very recently that you don't even need a new version of the switch. That's still sure. Yeah. So what I think now is that there there's probably a good reason that the new switch is going to happen no matter what like I think like there are parts of that switch that are three or four years old that are harder to get now the new parts that are better. So we're to you know like if there's like a, that's what's funny when he brought up the supply chain part of this like if they're actually going to keep on making switches and remember it's hard to get a switch right Now Yeah that's a problem, right so if they want to get more people switches, they might need to change that up and if they're gonNA, do that they might as well upgrade it. So the screen is more definition as new processor those too easy things to kind of go forward and battery as the other one right up. But those two are interesting because I think that switches nice win. It can pace along with having the things like the witcher and which are three and and contemporary games on it like doom. If. It can't do cyberpunk if it can't do the things that are still like current generation but are coming at the end of this generation I, think that's a problem and that that's why okay. Well, if I'm really really being honest with myself, I would love to play cyberpunk on my switch I know to look. Here. It's a giant RPG that I'd want to like just veg out in bed and play you know. Just non woody what do you think? I consider these rumors renewed rumors. Tina. Put an extremely credible implausible You know it would explain it would explain why they're released calendar for the second half of this year is so so light to to non existent. The teams the Internet you know the subtext being that the teams are probably working on, you know switch plus games I'm less sure that being said that. They could make an upgrade to the switch hardware that doesn't necessarily make it more powerful the screen, and to be clear I, love my switch. But in the year two, thousand, twenty, battery life is very bad The screen is not incredibly high quality and it actually has a huge black basil. So, there's an opportunity you can see it right there on the screen like they wouldn't even need to change the switch factor at all and just make that screen edge to edge. Improve the battery life and make improvements like that without necessarily having to make a console that can do four K. output on TV or something like that. So I'm curious to see which direction they go like is it truly a switch plus that can do four k. you know when Dr met has more horsepower is just sort of like a switch plus that has the same internal components but maybe just a little bit you know nicer and premium feeling.
Michigan announces $600 million Flint water crisis settlement
"Yesterday, the State of Michigan announced a six hundred million dollar fund to Compensate Flint residents who were harmed by lead Tina drinking water. This goes back to two thousand fourteen when Flint's which water supply from the city of Detroit to the Flint River in order to save money the city was facing financial issues and was under the control of a state appointed emergency manager. Still State environmental officials advised flint not to apply corrosion control measures to the water. Even as it was flowing through old pipes city residents started to notice an issue with the water. It was discolored had a bad taste. It was causing rashes and a lot of. Other issues at the time local and state officials continued to insist that it was safe. It wasn't until outside researchers tested the water and found elevated levels of lead that residents particularly children were urged not to drink. The water residents had to switch over to bottled water for more than a year and lawsuits filed against the state a couple years later, Michigan Civil Rights Commission determined that the water crisis had its roots in systemic racism and was a quote complete failure of government in a city where most residents are people of Color,

So if you're used to getting your Monday fix from here, you want something on Tuesday Estra Club. The past few episodes it's kind of leaning towards like self help which I guess is just what my body needs right now to tell the world So there's an episode about being assertive about self esteem about self love. Self, love is not just masturbating. So out Estra Club, it's on Youtube and wherever you listen to your podcasts and. Without further ado the doctor Caroline's vagina. Here we go. Hey. Esther. Hey Caroline how are you doing? What's new? What's Goss? I'm great. I'm always excited to see your face and talk to you and I WANNA die frightened right in because we have a guest today who I am more questions for than possibly humanly imaginable. So Carolina, you do the honors of introducing this woman as she as i. do think that you guys know each other quite a bit better than I know her yup, I mean this woman knows me better than anyone in my life I, don't. Know she knows that better than my mom, my dad, my significant up not actually no, she's a equal on equal with my significant other. She didn't agree having this. This guest on is a dream. I've always have it's been years in the making I'm so honored and excited that we were able g able to finish it into her busy schedule. Today, we have on Dr Tina Cooper Smith who is my overall doctor and more importantly my guy no. And I. Rely. Tell US everything. We need to know about. Caroline's China. Yeah. He's not using. Our. I. How how is it? Is it healthier? The rumors true is it really green? Very Out Green Light Shrek, right? So. My kids are all Shrek so I can say that so. That's their last name. Is here to help me announce that I have a rare disease called Shrek, pussy? No. He's here to help raise awareness for racing ascot in all seriousness this woman. Dr Cooper's is such an amazing woman. Amazing doctor. She's not just yes she's an amazing dino. She's an incredible doctor who knows so much but she's also so knowledgeable on all things wellness and all things female wellness. Whether or not it's nutrition Integrative. Medicine end and she's extremely well versed in like female sexuality and all these different things that should be part of our wellness practice meditation so much stuck in every time I go to Dr Cooper. Smith after she pulls her hand out of my nether regions fish with her scraping in her polling. She I always got the best conversations with her about all things wellness and I just love energy lovers so much. So happy she's here will I am very ill all the time mentally and physically so I ready to I'm ready to learn. So the opposite of wellness which is ease is this. No disease, right. So Disease Israeli disease, the body out of ease right? Our body should slow and feel great in feel well. Disease is when we don't flow. Allow that's guy. Is Not flowing. We WanNA WE WANNA float down the river of life right and if we had an obstacle, we want to go up it around it not try and go through it, but we want to just figure out how to maneuver. And pivot and keep flowing. And too. Often we struggle because Iraq and you're not GonNa go through the Rock so you have to go up and around it. Oh. Gosh. So I I don't even know where to start I almost want to ask like. This might be kind of a broad question but what are some of the like main wellness complaints that you see from women of me and Esther's generation and our age Feel unique or you know feel. Like important to bring up and talk about. I would say at every age it stress ride and it's how. Everybody in America feel stress right now with Cohen, its legs stress on steroids right. Like we're stuck inside and. We don't know who to talk to how to talk to them. You wear masks do not wear West. Yes. Please mask. I'm indoors right now without anybody around me so I can have a mascot. but. So I think in Your Age Group It's designing your life and people are stressed out because. It's really easy. I think through age I don't know twenty one to twenty four to just go through the motions of life and what he did you go to school and he get a degree and you keep going and keep going. And then all of a sudden you get out of college. and Oh. Now. Right now, where where's my life going? And for me, I actually that took me. I didn't wake up for many years. I would say I went. To College. Med School. Internship residency, fellowship kids and I never took a break really till I hit forty. Before I kind of went. Oh, I'm actually living life have I thought about how to live right? So but a lot of people get to hit that and I I actually bravely say that it's better to hit that when you're twenty, twenty, one, twenty, four. because. You have many more years to design your life and not go through the default of the path that somehow you chose or somehow chosen for you and you didn't really think through it. So I spent a lot of time with women. At several calls today, right about designing their life, do they freeze their eggs? Do they not freeze their eggs? So they want consider not want kids do they WANNA get married? Do They not get married? You know eat pray Love was a great book right in the first job dirge. She's like in the bathroom hysterical because she realized she she loved the guy she was with, but she didn't want the life. Of being married and having kids and he did. And so she had to make a decision to live her life. She went on to travel and write books and be a really inspirational figure to so many people. But it wasn't hurt life to just be at home and raise kids. And So. Anyway, I think the biggest thing that people in your generation have to. Not, your generation particularly but that age. Is. What kind of life do I wanNA live? And most people. Don't ever actually sit and think about it. They just keep doing. That's what I did..
Starting Zocdoc with Oliver Kharraz
"Oliver Karaz was born and raised in Germany mostly in rural parts of the country his mother was German and his father was from Iran in came from a long line of doctors. For me, it really starts in some ways with my dad and. The timing rapidly had every reason to become a social activist and and so he came to Germany from the Middle East when he was very young around twenty with no money in his pocket no language skills. And you personally then worked on of odd jobs, but he eventually became a psychiatrist but what has really shaped me much more than being born in Berlin is. Social. Active. Isn't that I that I saw him live and that he really made our family mattress we always talked about talent responsibility and the need to use. Whatever telling behind to help those. Around us that we can make a difference. Given that your father was Iranian and your mother was was sort of. German. An Uber even though you were born in Germany, did you feel did you feel as Germany everybody else? So I didn't have a second identity. We only used spoke German at home and yet. As you say I was also a not always fully accepted. So if I give you an example, my school twelve hundred students and you could pick out to the didn't look like everyone else and I was one of them right and even an enlightened country like Germany. That is notable. So I had what I call a visual accent would people would see me on the street and they would ask me how to speak German. So well and But they also school the skipped my name when reading out scores because they weren't sure how to pronounce my last name and opportunities taken away and even at was physically threatened so i. I think that really shaping in many ways because I realized. Very early that in order to be as successful as everyone around me I would have to be dramatically better in really work much much harder than anyone else and so that used to be strong work ethic in me. For the record Oliver is somewhat down playing his work ethic. Because just out of high school, he actually started his first successful company. It was the early clunky days of the Internet, and he designed a way to help people send emails more easily and he wound up selling that business not for a ton of money, but enough to get him through medical school. But. After practicing medicine for a couple years Oliver realized he couldn't stop thinking about that first business he'd started and how he wanted to start another. So he quit his job in medicine and consulting job with Mackenzie and eventually moved to New York. That was my goal was actually to start another company that that's A. Healthcare, but I I'd also realized at the time that I sold my first company and far too cheaply in that I should learn more about business I and at McKinsey God exposure to balance sheets and panels and hit a lot of very practical experience and what it means to manage business. And I think they fondly of my time at McKinsey was one of my better decisions. McKinsey GonNa Mackenzie is a little bit like going to business school. A lot of people at McKinsey have come from business, schools. In that. Many people go to business school thinking they will find a co-founder. Did you were you actively looking around at your colleagues to think maybe I can do something with him or her you know maybe that person. Absolutely and were you just thinking about different business ideas all the time? Well, it is actually very hard to find good ideas and my definition of a good idea was that it needed to have a great mission I. wanted to make sure that we actually do something good in that. We stayed true to sort of talent breaks responsibility, but also wanted to be a large market and to have a great motor rounded and also I wanted to be based on contrarian inside. Because I thought that all of the best companies have that at its core. While she wanted mission, you wanted a company that could kind of dominate its field by building a motor around it, but was also contrary and that's that's that's those are some interesting. Criteria. And that's why I screen for several years rejected pretty much every idea that that I came across And meanwhile. While you're going through all that I guess you meet this guy Cyrus Masumi. WHO's another McKenzie consultant and and just you just. Become friends like he's like somebody like in and you guys start hanging out. While we got put on study together that required us to travel globally and you've ever done that it meant frost were sixteen eighteen hour days together for three four, five months on end and we really. Got To become great partners in that and and what we realized that we had some. Very complementary skills. Cyrus is one of the most charismatic and gregarious individuals. You'd ever meet his very passionate. He could be more forceful, which sometimes was needed to be effective with clients. And you've talked to me now for a little bit as you can probably tell. More dispassionate and logical and more measuring. German? More, German in many ways, right. also was effective with clients by by. and Cyrus is American right? He's American this but that That close listened and how we work together that really started friendship and we stayed close for the study and be caught up over lunch pretty regularly denounce different business ideas off one another and. I think we connected because we had similar interests because. On. Some levels We were equally passionate about what we're doing higher says, passion was more visible to others than mine but we. Were close enough together that we both accepted. The other as. individual that that we could learn a lot from. Was it was it clear pretty soon after you start hanging out, Sarah's that this was the guy because you were. You're on the lookout for a partner. They I think it was was absolutely an option I know reality is that. With. Both founded companies before Mckinsey and we both knew that we wanna do it again and as I. was always great about being. Very honest. Rather than just nice and and I value that a lot. Yeah. All, right. So So this guy, Cyrus Super Charismatic, really smart clearly, the two of you start to to work together. And what what kind of business ideas are are you coming up with? While we kind of fell in love with a new idea that came about a one of these launches were Cyrus. Told me about how he recently ruptured his eardrum by flying with a cold and then found it very difficult to actually find a doctor and he had asked for recommendations and called down his insurance directory listing started with the as. Doctors weren't accepting new patients some no longer accepted two centurions one provider Pasta Way and so he said, well, why does it take four days to the doctor when I'm in pain right? And why can't this much easier? And we. Both very quickly. realized the potential of this idea from. Working at project be new helps us the for actually spending millions of dollars for marketing to grow their patient base because they had wasted inventory, right they had something that I like to call hidden supply, which is these last minute cancellations no-shows reschedules. That the that go to waste, and then on the other, there are the patients who had a hard time accessing this. You thought it immediately clicked with these my God. Yes. Doctor's appointments connect patients to doctors. Yeah. Well, look if you go through the forfeiture that I had read, it's a great mission right? We're making one of the most personal needs more accessible for for patients we can help patients to get in fast we can help the doctors become more efficient. We can make the entire health care system more cost effective people out of the emergency room things like that, and it's a marketplace. So there is a strong mode and clearly anything in healthcare is a large market and I think the contrary and inside that we had. was. The fact that. Most people thought it's normal that people have to wait twenty four days to a doctor because there's a doctor shortage in read our inside was really no doctors have asthma debate ability because of these last minute cancellations, no-shows reschedules and so I felt very about this idea. So. So you member like how long between the time that the you had that first conversation To the time were both you said, let's start this business was like monster or weeks or days. was was weeks. We what we what we started doing is actually. Mocking up the side in how imagine back then in powerpoint pointing just the wire. Website. Yeah. Wire frame. Exactly. We would. We'd go into starbucks and we'll chat up strangers and say, Hey, here's a five dollar gift card. Give me your thoughts. Sorry I'm GonNa. Go back. You just go to people in starbucks Gift Card and say, can you give me your thoughts? Random Person? The absolutely that's that was sort of our market testing. They wouldn't. They would be like excuse me this is a little weird. You're my space. Might also happen from time to time but you know there's lots of people on starbucks is very in German of you. That's debris because usually he would be to report tentative about doing that. Well, you know I think there was a lot less rejection than you think people actually quite open I. Suggest you try this out but if you If you're unthreatening in Luke harmless as we probably dead and then they'll be pretty open. You went up to and starbucks and you'd say, Hey, we're thinking about a company here. Can you just look at his powerpoint give you five dollars Gift Card and what was in the powerpoint, the popcorn and was just what we thought. This website would look like and we would ask them is the set service that resonates with you would you use it and and we got an incredibly valuable feedback here and really set us in many ways on the on the right track right? So and what pointed to the two of you decide let's quit McKinsey. Let's. Let's pursue this. Probably a month or two after we initially discussed idea did anybody say you were crazy for quitting? Everyone. Everyone told us. Crazy and got a lot of negative feedback on the idea to write people would say this is Bloomberg out I would never pick my doctor on the internet or I already have a doctor or you know doctors wouldn't accept patients that that are looking on the Internet of all kinds of protections that people had when they were thinking about their own situation by. When when you talk to people and starbucks, they actually thought about it much more positively. So we were encouraged enough to say, well, this is going to work as long as we get out of our circle and don't ask McKinsey consultants doctors. The responsible be better. All right. So you are in your thirties at this point. And presumably were making pretty good cash at McKinsey because you were probably you'd know expenses you're on the road all the time so. When you quit, I'm assuming you had some money to launch the business and probably live off for a while. Yeah. So I very deliberately had never raised my living standard to the money that the paying McKinsey and I had saved every dime so that I could. No be in a position where can fund this embraced can afford not to take a salary for a couple of years. Wow. So so a couple of hundred thousand and you saved. You know. Maybe. I'm to Germany to discuss personal finances but. I had. Built this. Radio, you can tell the. Story Yeah I I had I had enough money to live off for for several years but I also Saturday night both finance the company early out of our own savings so that clearly diminish We had leftover after that. So now, you both decided to quit. and. You have some technical expertise because you had. You had done some coding but this is next level stuff. Were you able to be that technology founder and Cyrus was going to be the the sort of the business founder? Absolutely not as I add coated but at that point, I had not touched a computer for a long time We knew we need to have a technical co founder and so Sarah's knew a guy named Nick Guanzhou from the time together, trophy software, and this is another company that they would both worked at the that's the company that they're both previously worked together and Nick just brought a totally different perspective and really educated Addison me on a lot of things and and he was really the one who understood a building a seamless experience for the consumer and ends May. Zach Docs. Early Genius, did you did you have the name dock from the beginning? Not, not initially we we went to several phases on on what the right name could be for for while we wanted to have a descriptive name. So we looked at physicians, dot Com Doctors Dot Com, and we actually tracked down the owners of one of these domains and they wanted several million dollars for the domain name. And and we were finding the company ourselves. So that was out of the question. So then we just sat in a room and we brainstorm a list of fifty or one hundred names, and then started eliminating names until we arrived at Dr. What does it mean? or it doesn't mean anything which was the WTO bit we could. There were zero search results. Okay. There's no meaning behind his ACH. There's no meaning behind and and in hindsight it was precisely the right thing to do because it really was a blank slate for us to fill with with meaning and really build a brand around. Zero such as October we started. It address nate the right lake once you know that it takes more than three weeks from picking up the phone and dialing for doctors till you actually see someone you realize Oh, this really not much else that we have to wait so long for to get. And this is more important than most of these other things you already have. Fantastic access View Magin. If air travel way that healthcare workers that wouldn't be an expedia that wouldn't even be Delta Dot Com that would be individual phone numbers for every plane. Imagine. If that happened, you know a half the planes would fly empty it would be a massive pain and that was actually the state of health care before sock. Is Amazing that that the nothing like this was out there in two thousand seven. I look at I. Think. In many ways you couldn't build it a much earlier. In the early days. When we went out there, we were the ones installing Internet of the doctor's offices. We. They they were a many times just migrating from a paper books to scheduling systems. We were at the cusp of digitisation for healthcare. We were just lucky in our timing to get this right in and start offering the service when that also happened. All right. So you decide to pursue Zach dock and it's the three of you. I'm assuming really just at the beginning and were you working out of out of one of your apartments? Did you guys rent space? No, we worked out of respect for. Many. Times we came to make yet the nicest apartment and and we could bring breakfast Burrito and bake him up and you know the the reality is that we originally had a pretty ambitious launch plan right so we got together around July. We wanted to launch by December of two, thousand seven. Something interesting happened were nick send an email suggesting to look at what was then called techcrunch forty. Take is is now a household name but the draw for us back then was there was a fifty thousand dollar prize now it's called tech crunch disrupt think. So it's a major a startup competition. It's a startup competition and we were the first class of this was much less known be budgeted two hours to fill in the application in really which will send it off. He didn't think about it anymore that there was an early July and early August we've heard that we had been accepted, but there was a complication we'd have to be ready by September eighteenth or. That was three months sooner than we had originally planned to launch. So you'd have a live website by September that is right that is right with doctors with doctors, right So we actually debated for a few hours whether we should even tried to go for that but we ultimately said, yes, we can get the website working and we wanted to have enough doctors just a bars wouldn't look pathetic. Brayden. Coded Night Neither Day and nick really busted his but he did the patient facing side of the website and that was the programs. What was potentially even harder because we're tried to launch a marketplace was to actually get the initial supply on there and remember the website wasn't there yet so. Tires ended up going door to door for doctors offices. Excuse telling them a powerpoint page, and this is really a testament to cyrus sheer willing determination if you think about what it means to really start a company early on, there's nothing to show right you may be a powerpoint but there's no website there's no patience. There's no other doctors no social proof and it has to run on passion and very clear that that is Cyrus superpower. He just went to random doctors offices or he had like a list of doctors offices and he started kind of walking block by block. Well, there's a lot of walking involved a we launched in Manhattan so you can literally go down the street and you see. The signs and you walk in. And he was basically saying look, it's a way to connect you to patients. How was how many by the way? What was your objective? How many doctors do you need to sign up to have this website look okay by September Between six and ten was our goal. Okay. So just doable it is a was extremely hard really. Is telling doctors is one of the hardest things to do why were they saying? Well, first of all, it is baby very hard to even speak to a doctor they are being shielded. Their time is very valuable. Office managers are trained not to let anyone talk to them to protect the doctor from people walking in selling them stuff shirt them. Secondly, they many didn't want to give up control over their calendar which has to write. We ask them to post times that a patient could book into it and it was just a far fetched idea for many of them the patients would actually do this. So he got a lot of knows he got a lot of knows. He'd go there and he just simply not leave until he got a chance to speak to the doctor and a few times. It was even escorted out by security. I really think one in a million could have put this off. I mean was he going to particular kinds of doctors or was he generally focused on an Internet general? Practitioners Ob sobe began with dentists Okay. Because our thinking was that. People go to dentists most often, and we wanted to make sure that we have an offering that is relevant for patients as often as possible. I. Got you so so eventually unassuming, you do get what six to ten or how many did you get by September of two thousand seven Eight. In the meantime, you inequity doing the back end stuff you were doing the coding and building the website does right and as you were building it. How did it look? So. The bit that Nick Build looked awesome for the time I think. It was impressive. We were. Very. Satisfied that we had a scroll bar that we had a map that we had back then already the insurance selector and a lot of feature that. Weren't to be found really anywhere else. All right. So September two, thousand, seven, you are ready to reveal. This service at. Tech. Crunch. And Doth Review present or did did Cyrus kind of wishy the spokesperson? Cyrus. I presented Nick stayed behind in New York to make sure that the less the website was actually up and running This is in San Francisco that you went to the we flew out to San Francisco and So we lost sock talk in front of Eight, nine, hundred people. A lot of them were journalists when the judges opened up with feedback guy covers ocoee who we newnan in valued. As embezzles forever apple he came out to said he he didn't get it. He would never use this in front of everyone right and. His direct load something like honestly Oh, it just never occurred to me to go to any doctor that's really burned in in my brain and what was worse is that he seemed to be right we didn't get a single booking. We were hoping that this PR would get us out of our initial batch of users, right because your other. So many tech journalists there. So you know the publicity may be would would would lead to bookings and that was the hope but. It actually took three days before regard our first legitimate a patient, and and in the entire first month, we only got five bookings. You come back from San Francisco and. You know you had Guy Kawasaki. Say I don't I would never use this service? I'm sure he feels differently today but man maybe then Ezio said that but did did you come back feeling like like dejected like losers or or were you excited like how did you feel coming back? While you know I think we obviously hoping we would eventually get more bookings and In the beginning you probably refreshed. The Bookings Report Hundred Times a day by as we were thinking through what we realized. It was really a typical two sided marketplace challenge It's just a classic chicken and egg problem. You need the supply to get the demand and you need the demand to entice them supply and for dark was even trickier. Right when you think about it, healthcare is hyper local. Very complicated. So you have to match. Supply and demand on a Zip code specialty level, and then we have thousands of insurances take. Until we realized that our odds of actually finding a patient that wanted. An offer there. Quite low, and so the best path forward was to methodically build up supply, and so we just kept going put up a huge map of Manhattan on the wall, and then a sleep put little flags on of where the doctor's brother we're on the website in which insurance is accepted and we just we knew the perseverance. Is the name of the game. Back in just a moment how oliver and Cyrus Begin to drum up interest in stock and how they even start to raise some money at figure out how to dress differently, stay with us guy rows and you're listening to how I built this from NPR.

Nick are basically powering through with Zach dock going door to door trying to convince doctors. It's a valuable service and the thing about doctors even though they're really smart and capable and we depend on them. A lot of their offices especially back in two, thousand, seven or sort of technologically in the Stone Age. There was incredibly complicated to sink the doctors calendars with ours. Because none of the software was actually made to sink. Were even in the places where we had syncs up and running, we would frequently get. Feedback while the punishment didn't happen because the doctor wasn't available and we really couldn't figure out why this was the case because when we did screen chairs with the office to their calendar and and our calendar, it was identical right and couldn't figure out why that's happening. So I decided to sit next to the office manager I went there and got to know him and his family photos of his dog. I fixed the printer taught a better strategies to play minesweeper still couldn't figure it out. Until one day, the doctor would come out and she'd say, Hey David I'm out next Friday. And then what does David do does he go into the calendar and block out next Friday or does he take a post? It note On a doctor out next Friday and sticks this too is monitor. In the real world. These post it notes, of course happen and but once you know that Matthew Friend, you can start filtering this out and that's one example they were literally a thousand point, one percent solutions that we had to figure out to make this work. Wow. That sounds I'm getting exhausted. Just hearing about that because this is like even like Google calendars, right? Yeah. Yeah. That was that was early days and what we were extremely focused around were making show the experience was fantastic. If something went wrong, we fix it. Right. So I was our customer service I personally would call the doctor and and confirmed the appointment was all said if it wasn't I, personally contact the patient to let them know and then I would offer them. Amazon Gift Card alongside with an apology those actually one case where it didn't catch a patient in time. and. The were in the subway to the doctor, and so I raised them to the doctor's office and picked up a bouquet of flowers on the way there and met them in person to apologize. And that was really a turning point burs. The service has to work and we need to be have this patients I attitude in in terms of how it works completely ingrained in the company. All right. So you clearly need to kind of grow this Were you offering this service doctors for free at the time? Initially. We for free by we eventually started charging fifty dollars per month. But Sam doctor you come into my office and you say, Hey, if you pay me I can bring you more customers. I would be skeptical I would've said to you you who whose, who even knows about you. You'RE GONNA you're asking me to pay you money for Phantom bookings for maybe no customers I mean did some of the doctors say Many. The US summarize our sales challenge. Right? It was very hard because even if you wanted to, we couldn't easily share how many patients their competitors are down the road God like that was something that was confidential. All right. So you are you got this chicken and egg problem. Not, enough people signing up and he gets skeptical doctors but you know that the service could really benefit the doctors, but you also need them to pay for because otherwise you know but business. Meantime at a certain point I'm assuming you guys start to think we'd better go out and look for money if we're going to really make this thing work. Yeah. Yeah. That that happened in the spring of two, thousand, eight we decided we raise series. And we we make the rounds we get in front of a number of the big name, BC New York the also go to Sandhill road in impel. Toho Santo Road we leads and road initially were very successful at all we got Polite knows. and. Ray No feedback control someone took us as I told us you know what the idea seems. Good. But you're consultants I'd and the perspective of its consultants can't get anything done and what realized is that even though we had both founded companies before our Mackenzie Pedigree in our keys and button down shirts, they were really hurting us, and so we wait rank Khakis and button down shirts. It sounds crazy. Were they pleaded pants or were they at least nine pleaded please. Yeah Yeah. Yeah we after hearing that feedback We very quickly just went to the next gap and bought jeans and t-shirts and from that on the combos with VC's when but a lot better. So you went from McKinsey consultant look to this are the tech casual uniform of jeans and t-shirts that that's exactly right and we introduced ourselves not as NBA's and McKinsey Consultants but we introduce ourselves previous entrepreneurs that are starting their next company. was was anyone biting? Were there people who were like? Yeah there's a great idea I'm in. So interesting enough we had raised some money from. Friends and colleagues, and many of those they invested in US business plan unseen just based on the fact that we. Were giving up our careers at McKinsey to pursue talks. So that felt really a great. and. As we started changing how we appeared in how we introduced ourselves to venture capitalists L., we started to get offers and so in August of two thousand eight, we ended up raising five million from KHOSLA ventures expeditions mark. Wow Mark Banya Jeff bezos, and Venus is. All their. Funds are in which sounds like a lot before you WanNa do it's actually. Kinda limited because you still it seems to me in two thousand eight even though you have five million dollars a lot of money you still have this problem which is you've gotta get. Customers, and then to get customers, you need lots of doctors had lots of options but to get doctors, you need lots of customers booking through the site to you do that precisely D- These five million dollars per lily earmarked for making New, York, work, right, Miguel, I market work but. immediately after raising the money the financial crisis hit. And You may remember there was rest in peace a memo that went around about startups, right? Yes. About start ups, never being able to raise money arrested in peace good times. So we got this job is to make the money stretch in. We probably learn not during this time This was really our first go round making hard choices and what I want to be frugal and not to do things we can't afford and We learned to not let money replace critical, thinking and creativity. But now we continued to grind away at New York and at some point felt while if you want to get. To the next level we have to prove. Dr Isn't just a New York City phenomenon. Right? We had to prove that it would work in a second city But at that point, we didn't have the money to do this anymore, and by the way you're still your approach was still the same. It was door to door. That's right door to door and how how you building awareness about the about the fact Zach existed with customers with potential customers. So we it was day very difficult to get someone. To the website. Yeah but when they did. They loved it because it was such a step change from how healthcare used to work for him. Right they used to have to pick up the phone and wait on hold and then plays scheduling. tetris. With the office manager, can you do Wednesday morning about Thursday noon? Friday afternoon, and now they could do the same thing in a minute and have complete overview about the ability patients loved it and they told their friends. So we we started to get word of mouth. Going, and so we saw New York really taking up and we felt like, okay, this does this go into work in New York. At a minimum rate, but we also realized that it took us a fair bit of time. And money to get it going. In New, York and do we couldn't with the money we had left from the five million easily expanded into a new city at the same time. Raising money was going to be difficult because the next generation of investors wanted to see that it works and other cities as Walter. So we were a little bit in this catch twenty, two we ended up. Applying to. Force boost Your Business Competition Four. Forbes has his competition as sell to where they give away money right to they were promising a hundred thousand dollar prize. And at this time. We won. And Yeah what did is they gave us one of these large publishers. Clearinghouse is sex and very useful actually used to cover a hole in one in our only conference room. There was a hole in the wall and we covered it with that. At, this point you are, you are working out of an office, not not an apartment at this point we were working out of A. Shared Office space we work. Yeah. So they had given us publisher clearing house is is check but they fail to give us the small check for three months and we were getting really nervous, but it would still get it but. But ultimately, we got that one hundred thousand dollars and that's what we used to launch and our second market in DC in Washington DC and would did it require you guys to move down there or were you did you hire because I'm assuming you had to? A lot of your early capital was going into sales. Business Development hiring sales reps, is that right? Right, we had a couple of sales reps at the time. A. Very first employee ever was a sales rep is still with the company today and He was great. He figured out how to. Really charm his way. To the doctor. So there were no more security guards escorting anyone out. When did you? I'm assuming that even in two, thousand, nine, two, thousand, ten, and beyond we're not yet profitable. Far From It? Yeah. Far from it right because it's a capital intensive business. Yes. We obviously invested heavily in customer service wanted patients to have a great experience. And we had a quite sizable engineering team because that was actually a major engineering effort. So what started to happen when did you start to kind of see? A real turning point. Yeah. So we we we had launched New, York successfully with. Years. Of hardwork, we've gotten it off the ground is transported that to DC at work well, in DC, and now he said, well, why are we not in more cities and so we actually we raised serious be with fouled respond and We used to expand off the East Coast Francisco then Chicago and we just got better better at it. So we then ended up raising serious and two thousand eleven from Goldman NTSC, and we primarily use this to grow our sales team and sign up more more doctors in from two thousand eleven till two thousand, thirteen, we launched roughly thirty new cities I read that by by two thousand, fourteen would covered. Like forty percent of markets in the US, which is huge I mean that's right I mean that's a huge number of cities. And in that year evaluation. Of tzakda. Past Billion Dollars I mean that's That's pretty remarkable i. mean you were kind of on this like really rapid trajectory and you a pretty straightforward model right and you were charging doctors a flat fee every year and then. They could take all the bookings they wanted and I think that by that point like by two thousand, fourteen knew it was not cheap. It was expensive viewed really raised the price it was like three thousand dollars a year, right? Something like that. Yes recharged Dr Three thousand dollars a year and and there was a flat fee. No matter. How many bookings Actually facilitated for them and and the reality was for some doctors that got a lot of bookings that was a great deal. Yeah. But but there were also doctors that God a lot fewer bookings and for them that fixed cost was actually too expensive and some of them were starting to leave the service, and so we got into a situation that required us to invest a lot to stay where we are and then invest even more to continually grow our overall provider base, which means we had to build out a massive sales team to always sign up more doctors right and. Some point during this time L. Nick actually ran an analysis showed that it would take several years if ever fries to make our money back on on many of the doctors we signed up because you would have to sign up. X number of hundreds of thousands of doctors paying that amount every year. To make your money back to to make sort of our the cost of the sales team back. Wow and L. it. This was pure that would make us dependent on external capital for our very long time, and now it's a clearly there are many companies that have taken. Grow fast at all costs approach. And They Held onto this forty extended period of time by L., it clearly puts talking to a dependency to. Investors in their mind says, yeah. So. Meantime. You know I I from what I understand. There's disagreements I mean there there are you know the leadership team including Cyrus he he's I. Think he's he's sort of his position as the flat fee model is actually the best way to go is that a fair assessment of of his position? Yeah. I think that's right. I. Mean there were two fundamentally divergent ways held the business could go forward right. One way was to continue to work on optimizing the unit economics of our subscription model and the other way was to think about how to make it more transformative leap and then find a new more profitable. And more sustainable model and. Their. Look I can certainly understand The reluctance and taking this leap if companies rechange their underlying business model once they have a certain scale and then live to tell about it, right. We know the names of the companies that have done this net flicks, but from DVD's to streaming adobe. From box software to the cloud, but there's not a lot of companies that do that. and. Needed to make a choice which which direction I wanted to go. And and I should say over that. Became intensely personal for you because hugh and Cyrus really disagreed on on on the direction of the company should take. Steps down he he left the company and you moved into the role of CEO. Those right and what ask you about this neo. Beauty's in the flies of this show is its simplicity and we talked to one person or sometimes too. It's a single narrative, and so we don't have cyrus with us to tell us what happened but I wanna ask you about this time because. This was your co founder. This was your partner This is your friend and he was leaving the company. How did you feel at that time? I all I can say was a very hard and very emotional period for everyone involved and It was certainly a departure But how was through that given these two divergent choices you you couldn't. note, both of us could be useful to talk and. I have to imagine that for for period. China. was sort of the friendship. Look been we were very close we. Were not only friends we had worked for eight years believe together fourteen hours a day, and we probably talked more to each other than to anyone else in our lives but you know. Still touch from time to time and. I think he's joining us on from sideline. He still at prison million owner of the company Yeah, he's still. Here's the thing I mean we've we've told stories about breakups we've had we've had episodes were there were married couples who split divorced but continued the business e O products. Susan Griffin Black and an her husband Brad They continued the business stacy's pita chips continue the business after the divorce sold it for a quarter billion dollars. You guys were worth value to one point eight billion dollars at this point. was was ever party that just thought you know, God look at what we're doing on the core we're going and. I mean did you in service it down and say you know this thing is just growing and? Let's just figure this out. I think the challenge is that it's not as if there was an article way to decide what the right path forward is. As long as investors wanted to give us money growing all costs was yeah. Fine Strategy. The question was just how dependent you wanted to be on the continued goodwill of investors. It sounds like you were tired of going out raising money. You didn't want to do that anymore. Oh, not at all but I think you want to raise money from a position where you know what your turn to is and and. It wasn't clear that the business model would work in in a way that that we could just flip a switch and be profitable. Yeah. So. That was a tough year for you. Two, thousand fifteen. There was an article in business I think business insider, and it was about the sales team. It's October that year and it was. It was some allegations that you know Pete member sales team using adderall even cocaine they were under immense pressure. They were working all the time when you saw that article. And I'm not saying you even aware of any of this. You may not even aware of it but I. have to think that that article really alarmed you and and maybe even embarrassed you. Look A. There were a number of articles in two thousand fourteen fifteen. Didn't absolutely get everything, right but Budweiser I can say is that At. The time doctor had their sales team and we're. Getting very quickly and Your maybe maybe. Too focused on. L. Hitting targets and. Not. Focus enough on creating a strong culture the I hear these stories from six years ago from from time to time and from from now from candidates and and really every time. This happens like a Gut Punch. Because, this we know we're completely different company now. On on so many levels, but clearly, you saw that in new that you had to change something. While yes, I look I l there's a there's a couple of things about this. Right? We are a technology company, but we had said ourselves up too much about. Instead of writing wins and really too little about being adaptable and darning and and building the trust required to try things that now pet the risk of failure. and. So one of the first things I did is to change core values. You know to emphasize those behaviors each one of our values adaptable, not comfortable and other one is progress before perfection learners before masters right and. We only kept really one DIA CONSTANT DEL patients I. Personally that. That was more of the culture that I thought was right for Doc to succeed on many dimensions. So, you take over the company it's got high valuation, but you're still not making money and you know that you've gotta change the underlying business model you're never gonNA make money. And from what I understand this is the beginning of what you have internally described as the second founding of the company. That is right. That is right and that basically happens in in two thousand, eighteen you you launch this new business model where instead of the the dollar membership fee. Basically, you would charge doctors a lot less like two hundred or three hundred bucks, but then every booking you, you would take a cut from that booking. So like a travel agency. A little bit charge for new patient booking. So the existing patients to practice we made free but yes, there was the fundamental idea and. It sounds like such an obvious thing to do but but here's the problem with it and why why are we thought it was incredibly risky to try this. Our best customers that had been on for a long time. They got lots of pockets right and if we start charging them per bookings, their prices go up very significantly in some cases ten times more and that seemed. Competing, insane to us. In. Particular because when we talked to other companies that were at gone through similar changes and even pricing experts, they're number one advisor was make sure whatever you do never charged your best customers more and frost would be precisely. The opposite. In the thing that was counter-balancing this in our mind was well, maybe we'd be able to bring on a lot more doctors because the barrier to entry is now much lower that was there was the back and forth in the team to figure out whether that's the path we want to want to go. So, this is still a risky strategy because you're depending really on new bookings because the two hundred dollar annual fees dramatically lower and I have to imagine in year one, you actually saw drop in your revenue in the year one of of this curve. Second founding. Right. Well, it's from a risk profile worth at that. Right the warriors that you lose all your best customers in with it, all the bookings day used to be getting. and. So we needed to be ready for a very significant drop in bookings and revenue and the second Challenge was here that. The beauty of this approach modest and we got all this money upfront right and Sharon. Now to bond, we're getting paid after the booking with with a thirty day payment periods, we had a huge working capital requirement to make that happen. So did you see a drop and revenue in two thousand eighteen when you rolled this out? No we didn't because we actually didn't see the doctors leave the way that we hit on -ticipant did in fact, you know while we had very much worried that they would be upset and some of them certainly were upset. We were providing so much value to them that. You know what? What took you. So long I knew as getting a great deal all along. So that worked really well, and we had piloted in Georgia initially in April. Two thousand eighteen and then that had worked. So we we then all allowed in Colorado a few weeks later that work to, and from there we went to Washington state and again, very positive results and after these three days. Okay Great. We know this works does it out in our largest most important market? Let's go to New York and that and terribly horribly wrong. They the doctors in New York. Not only were so pissed off they actually I read. mounted a change dot org. Petition I. Don't know what to to to end this practice or something. They were really mad. They were really really mad and I guess you guys responded you said, are we won't we won't roll this out in New York for a while. Yeah look in New York. We. Facilitate Roughly, one in five new patient doctor relationship in the entire city on dock and so. The economic impact for the providers in. was much greater than for the providers in Georgia Colorado Washington. So yes, to give you one example, there's a dermatologist and so and he paid under the ultimate model ten doctor say paid thirty thousand dollars and under the new pricing model, his cost was going to go up from thirty thousand dollars to roughly three hundred, forty, thousand dollars. Wow. So what was your response to that? I? Mean it seems like a pretty reasonable. Concern. Yeah. So look after the conversation with the Dermatologists I. Actually. Put down the phone and I thought you know what? He's right. And so I pause and we regrouped and. We did a couple. Of things during this time, like the first one is we just went on a listening tour. You know we talked to provide their feedback and we just adjusted our this plan to give providers a much longer grace period to decide whether the wants to addition to the new model or not, and then. So then we read on New York six months later and and when dramatically better. So the strategy works and you see results from the strategy pretty quickly like within a year. Within a year, we had we finally at some incredible momentum was really going better than we had expected in our wildest dreams. Our existing client went down to essentially zero. I mean people still retire and and move jobs by no one really left the service and we were adding more and more providers because the barrier to entry was low and So in two thousand, nineteen we began growing profitably. It sounds like two thousand and nineteen was really the banner year. Two thousand nine hundred was a was a fantastic year and honestly we had so much momentum coming into twenty twenty and feel like, Hey, we worked really hard for three years and profitable and now the sky was the limit until. Tells Sam until March of two thousand twenty. Two Marjo twenty twenty and that's. That's really maybe the third founding DOC right? Well, I want to ask you about March twenty twenty because. Your Business is based on people booking with doctors and going to the doctor I have to imagine your revenues must have plummeted like every other industry like I mean doctors offices are still in most of the country. Slow or are trickle of patients coming in. With the lockdown started happening we saw impersonal bookings declining anywhere between fifty to ninety percent by the end of March I'm not surprised and lot of that buys I was getting was to. Lay off people and make sure that we hunker down to weather the storm but I saw an opportunity to build windmills, right so I thought well, we need to be there for our patients. We should be expanding into telehealth and I need every team member to help me do that and so we. Really went all important and supporting video visits and I'll probably June eighteen began redesigning the tire marketplace support virtual care, and so we actually released. Doctor Video Service and we made this available to. Any. Physician whether they are on soccer. for free. And by the way head, you plan to do this. How long would would I mean I'm imagining if you said in in February district I really want to focus on telehealth Would you have expected that by May would have been ready to go. Absolutely. Not I think what has been really fantastic to see is how? We really finished two years of roadmap in two months. Wow, and it's great because it's just gives us a window on what the next phase of doctor will be and really looking forward to that in my mind were the point were Amazon started from going. Books to also adding CDs. We have just gone from doing only in person to also A. Doing telehealth and I can't wait to see how this unfolds. It sounds like you. Might be reading between the lines but. You. Really, admire and respect your co-founders particularly. Cyrus and the work that he did to to build this company but I wonder if do you think that you will a I dunno, rekindle your friendship i. Is it something that is in the cards because a break is? Is Emotionally, it's hard Mesa really hard. Yeah, look I Do I think we'll work fourteen hours together again maybe not but you know I I've gotten through tougher breakups and reconciled in my past, and so I think we are we're in good shape and honestly know we are meeting were talking from time to time Yeah. We both have things to do and places to be so we're. Not, hanging out all the time. But it's now also five years ago So We are we're merch focused on making our join the baby successful. When you think about your journey and All Its happen to you how much do you think this has to do with? with luck and how much do you think it has to do with with the hard work you put in your your skills. Well I'm going look I I believe that there's really three ingredients to success. In order importance there are lock the talent, then hard work and. The only one. That's comedian. You control his how hard you work right and Now working hard to gives you more shots on goal It helps his day on the top of what you your talent allows and absolutely restarted at the right time the right place. So What what I'm proud of an all that journey has only that yet when we were wrong and when be had to revise and. When we needed the grit to actually make it work. I L we lived up to that and and that's really The all that anyone can ask themselves to.

Mail Delivery In Swing States Falls Short, Worrying Elections Officials
"You're planning to vote by mail this election, there are troubling signs that on time mail delivery is not meeting the standards set by the Postal Service. A PM reports the investigations unit of American Public Media analysed first class mail delivery data, and it found that mail service in critical swing states is worse than a year ago. Elections officials worry that late ballots may never be counted. Tom shek has the story. The Corona virus pandemic has prompted tens of millions of people across the country to consider something different this November voting by mail, Wisconsin resident Eliza Werner is one of them. In June. She and her husband requested absentee ballots for the August primary. But she started worrying after not getting her ballot after waiting a month as people started talking more and more about the upcoming election. I just thought, you know I really should have received that by now. It's been a couple of weeks, she says. She was told other voters in the Milwaukee suburb reported similar problems. The clerk canceled Warner's initial ballot and re sent new ones. Elections officials say Nearly 700 ballots were not delivered to Milwaukee area voters for this week's primary. And that comes just months after thousands of ballots didn't reach Wisconsin voters in the April primary. And analysis of mail delivery confirms voter complaints. The Postal District serving eastern and southern Wisconsin repeatedly failed to meet on time delivery goal since 2016 putting it in the bottom quarter of districts across the country. Wisconsin isn't the only swing state Postal district failing to meet delivery standards. Detroit's on time delivery for two day male plunged nearly 22% since last year. None of this surprises. Tina Barton, She's an election's manager in Michigan and says some primary voters there complained about never even getting ballots in the mail. So even a couple weeks prior to that I had a City council member tell me that they had gone four days and had not received any mail and so about a couple weeks prior to the election, I was really starting to sound the alarm to people and I had important, says she started telling voters who requested ballots in the run up to the primary to return them in person. Timely mail delivery is important because Michigan, like more than half the states requires ballots to be returned by election Day. Postal officials are urging voters to mail their ballots at least a week before Election Day. They also say they're working with elections officials to educate them about election male standards. Speaking before the Postal Services Board of governors last week, Postmaster General Lewis to Joy said election male will be delivered in a timely manner. We have delivery standards that have been in place for many years. The standards have not changed, and despite any associations to the contrary. We're not slowing down Election mail or any other male. We are dealing with a directive under the new postmaster general that is not seeking to improve the delivery performance. Timmy Patrick is an election male expert for the Democracy fund. She says to Joy's recent changes to how the postal services run will make mail delivery slower at a time when it needs to speed up When you eliminate over time when you change the work ethos of an entire organization that is get the mail through To leave it behind. It's going to cause problems to joy made his changes after the on time delivery data was collected for the last quarter, leading Patrick to suspect It's even worse now. Individual postal carriers and a union leader representing postal workers also say the changes, air leading toe upheaval and significant delays across the country. Elections officials are urging voters to hand deliver their balance to a drop box or elections office if it's close to election Day. Still, some voting rights advocates say that doesn't go far enough. Allison Riggs leads the voting rights program at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in North Carolina. She says. North Carolina doesn't have a lot of experience handling mail ballots. Couple that with mail delivery worries and rig says it's better to vote in person were suddenly talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of new things to be in the mail. Back in Wisconsin, ELISA Werner says she'll again request a ballot be mailed to her for the November election. But she won't return it by mail.

Well, you know what is interesting that you ask her to marry she shared with sued asked to marry when she turned fifty twice. But you didn't really want to get married. Then I think I've heard you say that no, no, no, no no. The truth is that I was. Trying to show Tina, my commitment Oh. Good. You know I think when the woman turns fifty she should have a commitment from her partner. Yeah and that's why I opposed and and asked the question. Wrong. Would you say well, I said. Will you marry remarry with me? And of course was. Not In my view. To me it was like, okay. Okay. That was a mistake. I. Wasn't I wasn't so into the proper grammar at the time. It was cute. I was committed I was committed and wanted her to know it and I wanted to show this and so I went on my knees I never did that before I was never married before. Yeah. I. Have My Ring Ready and I had this ready and I had everything ready. It could have happened that you noticed said, yes, I didn't know. So she sorta said nothing and then strung you along for. Data. So that was okay with me I I could read between the lines. Yeah. Because did you feel that once he asked you that that he was committed to you did you feel no Oprah Even though he asked me I, didn't think it was real I didn't believe him. But you didn't want to say I didn't WanNa say no because I want to continue the relationship. Got It. I. Got it now do you feel married? Do you feel married? It's been a week. I think Our love for Relational Partnership? Was upgraded after twenty seven years you either goal for it or you don't respect and so I think that's what we both looked at each other we said, should we upgraded Should we make it a little bit more legal. Should we make? It should be yeah and that's basically what we did. The age difference ever bother you know it to me Tina is not old teen is not young. Yes. She she time she's not black. She's not white I mean to me as a woman I love and that's it. I mean I don't have any age related thoughts. Can I ask you this? I. Know. The moment for all of us sitting at the wedding was when we heard. Frank Sinatra's voice. And the song's started. I did it my way. And that was your wedding march basically, I did it my way. What was the significance of that? I chose the song because. When I listened to the words it was very final and he said and now. Time is calm. Is the introduction. Something's down the final curtain. Yes. I might cry if I sing it. I like when he said a bit off more than, I. Could Chew when I spit it out. It's like you know. I've been on every road that you can travel through. Warren says, that wouldn't have been my way, but that is the way it was. Yeah. And you were actually smiling yeah. Could you say that that was one of the most perfect days of your life? That moment. The Perfect Day started two years prior the consolidation and getting all of that together. That was the beginning of me saying, Hey, wait a minute. Something is happening Tina. What I talked to myself. So this is a movement coming here and then that day. Just is summarized. Yeah. That was it. Now, I have a husband and we will go the rest of our rest of my way together.

At that time he was totally gone in my memory or anything. So when I heard heard, he was dead. It was almost like hearing a person that I didn't know anymore. This is why you are not just a role model from everybody knows that I'm a big fan and it's actually difficult to interview somebody when you're as big a fan I am of you. You obviously a role model for me, but you are a role model for the world because I remember when I was interviewing in two thousand, eight you and share in Las Vegas and we started talking about aging and you. Were So. Profoundly eloquent. How do you feel though about getting older I have to say that I welcome with open arms because my my senior live is so much better than when I was young I am the wisdom the way I think. My attitude towards things it really there is a change when you steal healthy and you still look good. Yeah. So your whole outlook changes on everything and you really have you don't mind being sixty eight, the number doesn't lead. You have no regretting of it. Not of death not in any of that.

That's where we're trying to get to where you desire nothing. I it's a journey you're on, you go through the journey and then you need the journey. Now how you manage the journey is very, very important. I stayed on track I stayed on course. Now why I stayed on course I had a wish. My wish was to arrive here where amp today in this frame of mind and this physique and this healthiness and this it's a happen is that I never knew. That that's what happened is was I'll try to explain that you're happier than you ever imagine yourself imagine what happened is was and the past happen this was. About, address Oh this car and Oh we just bought another house It was all material things. Yeah. There's one when I get up in the morning and I go and sit I have a big chair in my room where I meditate, I, sit there to finish waking up. Inside of me is I is a feeling of I, say I give thanks for this feeling. It's a feeling comes over you a wellness. Over. A free.

I have the House I have the comfort I have the cars I had the jewelry I. Have the peace of mind I have the friends what else is there to want. Sounds like Nirvana to me, it sounds like nirvana to me sounds like. Is it true? Are you now? Of Switzerland? Yes I am I feel totally safe there. I like how they live. They lived strictly by a law that they've kept from the very beginning how I know from the very beginning because when I went for the interview for the Citizenship Act to really learn. How this was people are yeah. Had to take the test as people do when they're coming to America's tell me about this though. Is there something about being over here, Switzerland, but in particular that you feel embraced ECHINACEA it longer. Okay. I went on tour when I was sixty nine. And you know I toured in today's yes and I I always took the bus we we didn't fly plane only when we have to. And I really looked at the land. You know seeing it for years and years by buzz and all over. An Oprah have to say it some kind of way I felt like I had finished living in I felt that you've done it that I had done it in. That was not a desire anymore but I was maybe it was because I had something had lived in Europe and felt something different. And I know that. In all that you've done and all that you are, you are also a giver. And that you're giving back to the That really started your beginning the flag school in Nut Bush. What does that mean to you? When? Tina was a young girl back nut Bush Tennessee schools were very much segregated. She attended a one room schoolhouse for black, children call Flag Grove School for the past forty five years. It's been used as a barn. But last year it was moved to a local museum to be restored. Tina is not only helping with restorations, but the school will now hold treasured memorabilia from Tina's music career. I am getting involved with that school because I feel a part. Of Heritage. Legacy legacy. And what will be ultimately? You think I think the school is a wonderful legacy. But. When you look back at your life, and now you're in the Nevada stage of your life what is the legacy of Tina Turner? Oprah. Thank you. I. Have to sit over red and talk about that. That's a joke. Endurance you.
"tina" Discussed on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations
"Look at the. Watching with people I'm on the edge of my. Really yes. Yes. Yes. Nothing like nothing like nothing like it. What does it feel like out on that crane it felt so good because I saw all of those faces that you don't see stage only a few when I was over there, it was so rewarding to give myself to them. They sought me with their own eyes and not on a screen. That's what I did for myself and for them when I went out there I went to them. How to singing take you beyond. Doing my time. When you saying? And Man, will singing and dancing. You fly you you move away from everything that real. You are into something that's coming out of a note or a song or a note or feeling, and you get totally wrapped into that and with the motion of that in the dancing and the singing it's like flying because you're not thinking of eating or sleeping, addressing the song and the singing. Totally take your out. Tina Turner has always said her brutal sixteen year marriage to I. Turner was actually much worse than portrayed in the film. What's love got to do with it now just a look at your life up until the time you were able to escape really a kind of you're in a slavery it was hell it was held. But what I want to say to the public is My struggle started inside of my mother's wound. I suffered all the way from childhood. Right up until the end of. And what kept me on course was mean something I was born with I believe that I was born with keeping in touch with. Staying on track because I always prayed. anime bullet was born in nineteen, thirty, nine in tiny nut Bush Tennessee her parents floyd in Zelma had a volatile relationship and split up when anime was ten. She. was about to leave him when she found out that she was pregnant with me. And the fighting had already started. But what I liked about she fought back what I remember about them when they fought there was no him standing over her she was a factory Walmart you grew up watching your father be I watched them fight. Not. Him, beat her up I never saw him when. She bought sticks of wood and everything I mean she was really vice but the bottom line is she didn't want to have another didn't want to have an at I knew it. So I kind of grew up. So you were that baby that she was that day. I didn't know what Love was as a young child, but I was born independent. After the By eighteen years old and. Changed forever when Ike Turner the lead singer of the Popular Saint Louis Ban Kings rhythms brought her on stage and handed her a microphone was. I knew he had found a star and charmed Anna's mother into letting her join the ban. When we were talking alone last week. So if you don't want to talk about it, just tell me and talk about it and I ask you do you remember the first time I kit you? And you told me the first time. Do you feel comfortable telling people? Okay. Okay. I didn't talk about it when I recorded the song a fool in love I took it to New York judge Mary of sue records. He said, why don't you keep it with the girl's voice I like it. And then you know he had considered that so then. I xe problem was he was a musician that always wanted to be a stock and was the star locally, but never internationally to travel so he then changed the name to i. And changed my main to Tina because. If I ran away. Tina. was his name. It was patent as you call it so so he could own you so he could own. SMART. He wasn't educated smart man, but he has a common sense in a really strategy and con so you owned you. So he came back. I didn't even know that that was the name on the record, and so I started to feel something and he started to touch me. I, really didn't like because that was my brother that was my friend actually maybe I wouldn't have been here today if we had not if I had gotten a relationship with him because we were very close as friends so you weren't even his girlfriend. No it was just. I had sex with everybody around him over everybody's wife. So then I said to the woman that was helping him at the time I said. I don't want to do this. I knew how I was he had beaten always fought the always fought women men everybody. And my instincts told me I was moving into something that wasn't going to be good and so she went in and told ISO then he said she said I wanna see you so I went into his room. And he started that he had. A sick way I found. He started it with what are you trying to do to me, and then the next thing it would pick up something because you know if you play guitar, you can't fight and play the guitar. So you always thought with something. Against the against the head always ahead with a shoe stretcher and I had never been meeting. She'll stretcher. And it really hurt. But I was still trying to figure out what was happening. And then so then the the beating came you know, yes, you'd like all the rest of I was down by then really starting to cry and then he said. Yet in bed. that. was really all. Sex. After. The I, hate you how can I let you? How can we make love now if it's love yeah, and went through that and then I lay there with a swollen head. Just having sex. Feeling like you have really gotten yourself into something I had nowhere to go ahead a child. I had already a child from one of the musicians I know where to Ron I needed to make money I want to sing to make money. In nineteen seventy, eight, I can t divorced Tina was left to raise her two sons one from Ike and one from a previous relationship. She also adopted two of ice children as her stepson's everybody who's watching this right now, who's living this right now you told me something I thought was so. I mean, profound you said, sometimes you'd walk in the kitchen in the morning. And say what's on your mind? And you say nothing you have to start working on having nothing on your mind. So when it has, you wouldn't believe and nothing was on your mind. Sometimes now I really love and he was really crazy. Crazy. It was crazy because how could you not have anything around always have something on your mind something always on your mind stupid. Over. Also happy I can laugh about my pass because when I look back well, actually today the we did laugh about him a lot. He was alive behind his back because everyone knew that it was ridiculous how he was. Do you remember Robbie? Montgomery. Robbie. Was a support for me in those dark days. Might choke up here a little bit. Robbie was like a sister. When she was an i. get you know Ms. Robbie. Montgomery. Is The star of the hit show. Welcome to sweetie pies but MS Robbie. Got Her start is one of the famous I cat's singing backup in the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. And times when I didn't have money..
"tina" Discussed on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations
"They could be and they work and they were in two thousand nine when music legend Tina Turner took her final bow that curtain closed. One of the most storied careers in music history after half a century eight grameen's and nearly two hundred, million albums sold the Queen Rock and roll had left the building. Tell me you were sixteen nine for last tour. You put away the Lou batons you're the only human being I. Read. So choose that whereas up there with the red social before we knew what red social that. Okay so you put that away. How hard was that to to hang up the shoes oprah my friend. Very easy. Really I've been working towards that. For so long over I worked hard all my life you know gave me ever a thing and I when I started to take care of my family I would say. Oh. I wish someone would do that for me and I knew that it wouldn't happen. So I worked. And when that happened that means I balanced my money and I had to make sure that financially that I could do it and when I left there I, put it to rest I, put it to sleep. I tried to forget all of those stressful moments even the dressing room and not feeling like going on stage whenever it's time for me to be Tina something turned and that's that professional set I became no matter what I felt sick I was or aching leg ideally because I wanted to leave that stage knowing that everybody had a wonderful time and. Again. Every time I've seen you perform and I've seen you perform for them anybody else on earth I. Remember standing in Houston with a woman who was crying and said, I now know I can do anything just from watching you on stage and that's what you wanted every time letters saying it was more than singing more than a rock and roll star didn't know how my style of work on stage to give people hope and make them go out and make it happen for themselves and all of the male that came in to me said after seeing your show. I went out and I made my life. That is what I achieved. Yeah. That is what you achieve. That is what you need. So the night in Sheffield England when you knew that was going to be the last performance. Was it bittersweet at least no opera Now this I have to be careful how I say this because the public will get it wrong when you've waited for something decades. I went back out the I can tina days were over where I was a slave I had to go back and slave again for myself. And that whole. Because to have enough money to address to take care of family and to take care of responsibilities and all of my Chinese Allah. In that position so don't worry about it. Yeah. I. Wanted to retire and not worry and that is what that did for me. So I got to my goal I received that moment a revelation of this is it I'm going home now Whoa I was going home in a big way more than just a house. I was going back to a place where I had decided. In. My last stage of my life where I want to be. Yeah. No one ever knew unstaged. How much? I really was tired of singing and dancing. You were tired of it. It's work I I know it's work but it's something when you do all of your life yes every night that's all you do you know everyone is having a tam up there working. It's just was years and years of and. Again the body has started to react on working on high blood pressure. Yeah. I was taking medication which pulled me back I didn't have I couldn't get into that second year to to to buy is that what would happen to you on stage? It feels surreal. It was the second year the first few seconds was you know the look and everything and then the second song I started to press buyer and I was losing beauty but that wasn't important then because I knew I already had my audience and then I make the first costume change second year. I went for third gear. That was when I changed clothes the last time on that crane and went out to the people and that was it. So it started to become harder I couldn't hit my notes. Dammit I wanted to get those nodes. And I had to really fake those notes. Somehow you know but I managed it it took every drop of energy in life out of me afterwards I took a hot bath and just laid. And then I would eat it would take really until the next. To. Restore that energy back. So I did nothing but that so that I could complete continue. Yeah. So everyone thought because it was so you were so believable onstage effortless. It looked effortless if not that I didn't enjoy it oprah I enjoy that done You know whenever I got to certain songs like simply the Baz Proud Mary are what's love got to do with it there was certain key songs, but there were certain songs in between that worked me a little bit harder to get to those ones. My idea is still if I ever go back for any reason in any way I will have to create another way. That will get people to accept it because no one ever wants to see Tina do performance any other way than that right? Well, you can't hundred, eight, hundred, ninety. So I don't think they would accept me standing in a wonderful gown singing. That's not me. Yeah. Every now and then I always loved that point where we get to problem Mary, which is always one of my favorite moments you say every now and then we want to do something nice and easy right Yeah. But. I like to do it. Nice. Talk.

Before beyond say and we were born Tina Turner was selling out stadiums around the world as the first black female rock and roll star. And it's no secret. I am one of her biggest fans Tina Turner is one of the greatest role models for women of any generation. Every note she sings declares I. Am here I will not be broken today at seventy three years old Tina Turner says life really is simply the best this Summer Tina married her longtime partner of nearly thirty years and I was fortunate enough to be there. To. Be a part of that big day I'm in the south of friends where Mr and Mrs. Urban Bach have been enjoying their honeymoon. We're at the most elegant grand, Hotel Cop Rod, one of the finest hotels in the world. Body. My God look at you. You are the role model for the twenty-first century thing over you.

So you've been on a honeymoon for a week and I wanted to ask is something you need to share with us. Are you pregnant? Are you pregnant? Of My girlfriends not don't go start having children. So I thought I knew you pretty well and then when I heard, it announced that you were going to get married. Little. We did we went. Watch and for what and for what can you answer that question? Comes a time in life and as everyone knows, I'm seventy three years old. You must put things in place I I started consolidating getting rid of property. I got rid of the House vast property in America I how they made a situation for my son's yeah anything that was costly. I totally got rid of. And then the next thing I found that. If something happened in depth for me which urban I weren't married before now he would have no say and I thought it was a bit unfair to live with someone for as long as we are. And not to give him any say yeah. Tina and urban met in Cologne Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six at the time urban was a record executive and pick Tina airport before concert despite a sixteen year age difference Tina says she felt instant attraction. So every time I had talked about marriage before because he said to me didn't ask you when you when I was fifty when I was fifty years old, he asked me if I would marry with him. Oh, it was so cute and he's much younger does and I simply said I don't have an answer because it wasn't yes and it wasn't known. About marriage he said, we have to do something because if something happens to me, you can't get my money. How's that? Okay. I kinda thought like. Marriage says ownership you my wife? And I didn't want that my anything anymore and had enough of that from growing up with with my family and that situation I just wanted hands and controlled anymore didn't think that urban would. But he might've because psychologically that that law changes people's. Fouled that hasn't been the thing for me to do certain things not because you my wife well, yes, and also this what happens is that people I think traditional men feel like the word wife means something. Yeah. All right and I noticed you these at the wedding fans everybody which was great. Yeah you know sometimes. In a restaurant you see a really lady dressed very nice and she picks up the menu or something and little fan always a newly big fan as a little. Nice. Little Nicer. Little one I love this little fan always a little nicer. Planned every detail of wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever seen. More than two hundred friends and family members joined Tina and urban at their Swiss Estate Chateau Algonquin. Justice Tina envisioned the wedding was magical with personal touches from her everywhere. View. of. Tina's longtime Canadian rocker Bryan Adams performed his classic song all for love as a couple of walk down the aisle. An. Hour. Pink Armani Flower grow dresses were just the most magnificent. I've ever seen and one of my favorite details a stunning wall of roses created by celebrity florist Jeff Leith Going on when wedding invitation requested that all the guests wear white because normally you never wear white to wedding on said yes. So I knew that you must have been coming up with something spectacular you and Giorgio Armani at that dress was something I have to tell you do you have a favorite moment from that day? The day of the wedding yes. Do you have a favorite moment? Okay. I have to tell you because I started to plan January and I really gotten tired I was tired of thinking about it. I was of waiting for the day I wanted to get in the car and go to Italy before it's time. To, urban I said, you know Darling I'm GonNa, miss all of the I want to see it. So then he he started to think for me. So he said you know what if we get a place in the house or you can sit? 'n peak and look what people coming in. So your favorite memory is looking out the window and watching us all come in. So I stood in the window. And I've had an open just enough and you could see my face reacting to certain people some lab. Step bit and some was awesome. Those ladies dresses were. Everybody looks. So yes, you know it was very interesting about it and I was so absolutely honored to be there and I said at one point this feels like the great gatsby for real and it also anybody who's been an experience like that. You feel elevated by the experience feel elevated by the experience in real now. I am rock and roll I cannot envision performing any other way. By the other side of me is that elegance and that's what I wanted for that day it was not about my career, play my music or to wear hot funky close it was to wear the best I could be and that I wanted my my garden, my house and my guest to be the best.

We're so happy to have you back to. so it's been. Intense that's kind of. An understatement in China. Living here has been intense in this country from the pandemic to racist police violence I mean even this Sunday, there was a five point one earthquake in North Carolina where you Live apparently the largest and over a century. Right. Here in Harlem trees fell down last week because of the storm. So this is just a very first question to ask you how you doing. So Tino, we're going to start with you how you feeling I am tired all the time like I can't complain really too much everything is. Fine but I'm very tired. Okay. Yeah. Short and sweet the TASHA. Who would be a podcast in itself I told you I. Felt. New podcast. How feeling? Is. What. I am I'm having actually every human emotion you can have, and I'm having an all at the same downtime. I'm angry, sad, scared frustrated hopeful fired up every motion human emotion. You can have I'm having and this moment of few weeks ago I myself actually tested positive for covert Nineteen Latasha. It. was the most nerve wrecking name Sweetie. It so I'm here for you sweetie. Oh you understand. Thank you so much and I'm so glad that you are will I had a mild case of but I think more than anything. It's the worry because you don't know how it's going to respond to Matty and then I'm worried about people being around me and being around my family. So I am just petitioning for a twenty two over I was just like a lot of talk to about this. Talk to the manager I need to recite twenty. She's a woman by the way. Exactly I know. So listen. I know first of all, thank you for sharing that. Latasha and. My heart goes out to you for anyone has to go through that especially in this time but we do want to discuss the twenty twenty election. It's less than eighty five days away. As if we're not on edge enough this year and honestly I'm going to come in as the Puerto Rican reporter. I have news to share with everyone in the world. What are we just had a primary election on Sunday complete Shicho. Alison show up two pressings. There's calls of. Delaying. It and moving into next Sunday and it's just it is complete. Chaos down in my home island colony, and I'm very worried now that this is just a prelude to what's going to happen in the united. States on election day November but we want to talk about the power of voters of color and the issues of voting rights. The backdrop of this election season is the coronavirus pandemic. There are now five million confirmed covid nineteen cases in this country, and the number of those infected has doubled since the end of June and then we still have to mention. Joe Biden's comments last. Thursday during a joint. National Association of Black Journalists and a BJ and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists which was an h j of what he said. What you all know. But most people don't know unlike the African American community with notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With incredibly different attitudes about different things. This completely overlooks sees issues of race identity ideology, intersectional communities, I honestly think that this kind of statement, the trump campaign's like bring it on because it's just GonNa be used to divide and conquer Democratic voters.

There's a there's a number of things I'd like to talk about with you today including your. Your advice on integrating meditation and Yoga into our everyday life and are busy schedule as well as your work with Yoga and breath work in a clinical medical sending including with your with cancer patients. But I, I like to ask you about how you got here how we got here with you, and maybe we can start with your own yoga and meditation training under your revered teachers in Nepal and India. So can you give us a brief version of of how you began your studies to help us situate where you're learning has is coming from Sure sure. Emmy see how brief I can. So really when with the Tibetan tradition, it really started when I in my first trip to India in nineteen, eighty nine. And I was really looking for teacher. I wasn't sure if it was going to be an Indian teacher Tibetan teacher I was more familiar with the teachers I did get to meet with Yuji Christian motifs of not the famous one JD. Wonderful Yuji Chris for more and more. And then some g my analogy, and then actually when I met the two BETTON SAT in La. It really started inspiring me and particularly the way that. They had this devotion to the picture of its own is a Lama and I have to admit I didn't know too much about His Holiness yet. But then doing the trip. It was when he was. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize I was actually cashier at that time I remember reading that in the US favor now it's like Wow so happy a give my mom. My Dad had been awarded the prize and and and I said, I need to meet this man. In fact that evening they showed on the Indian TV. Heart of Tibet. That I la that was actually the forward or was by pressing Carter. And I. So I went from touch me to down silos where the Delilah was. It was. During that time, he was the fortieth anniversary of the children village. That's the first time I saw him talk. Then I went for you know a public interview and I kind of. was trying to be there as much as I could and at the same time I got my first. Personal teacher, which was you should origin. Bodies, Yogi. And he was particularly into the tradition of true and. Whether he was the Weatherman for the Dalai Lama. and. I started training with them I. Did my longer with him or started the non right ended up seventy slater finishing That really led me to come back towards t Tina where I'm originally from. And really start devoting a lot of time to practice and then was in ninety one that. I, I met a number no group chain that he came to Argentina I nine, hundred ninety and I am Alejandra can I can I just mention here that that sort of what you're talking about a little bit is that when the Tibet you mentioned that you met the Delami in in in northern India in Dharamsala. And this is after for our listeners who don't know the when the Dalai Lama a came into exile when he left Bet in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he and about two, hundred thousand. Refugees settled in the northern regions of India and where the Dalai Lama lived was Dharmsala, and so that was one of the first places that you went to in. That is sort of this hub of the Tibetan diaspora that is sort of surrounds the Dalai Lama, and then eventually Tibetans have gone of course throughout the world and there's two. Betton. Buddhist. Centers throughout the world and so you were kind of a beneficiary. You came along in nineteen, eighty, nine, nineteen ninety and started studying with some of these teachers who weren't only in India around the dilemma. But who had gone elsewhere you mentioned non-pwi Norbu Rhumba Jay who had gone to to Italy, and then there were other centers where you were living in Argentina. Yes, and so I. I did consider you know for for some time Don, Sala my second home I spend many months there. And that's where actually ish adorned pitches monastery wall. So. As, you said Dharamsala was this hub and I really considered my second home. I spent many months there intermittently going from there to other places and back, and that is really were you had his monastery and and. So meeting the Dalai Lama and trying to be as much as possible with them. But also really having a personal teacher like you should was really important to me so that when I came back to Argentina that I felt there was no one there in luckily I was wrong was a small. Karma Kagyu Center. And also kind of a unique center the first teacher I met when when I go towards. Metering And then Nunca Norman as I mentioned the Nunca over pitcher was a big change for me. In the way he taught. So the Tony Brooke he brought the teachings. Into everyday
Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.
"What's up everybody is you and skipping meals David Hatfield joining this week is Tina mini everybody just Davis. Scoop and friend and SAM clayborn. We've got a great show for you this week we're going to talk about. The crazy crazy crazy deal about spiderman being exclusive to playstation. In Marvel's AVENGERS WE'RE GONNA flip through the August nineteen ninety issue of video games and computer. Entertainment. But I. Really all you need to know right now is that spunky to is finally finally coming out, September fifteenth just over month away I couldn't be more excited listeners and my friends on the show have long long heard me talk about how much I love love love spunky. Maybe my favorite game of all time cheese maybe I don't know why does it need sequel? Doesn't necessarily need one, but the like I, I. You know spunky. So brilliant and they've spent so much time making the sequel like I'm really excited to see you know how do you with with this one and what? During their, how deep they're going to get maybe they'll go so that they a lava world. You, what do you want different in this game? Necessarily different but I mean just play spunky I can't believe. We're still talking about this. You don't want the game he don't own a to do extra. This is the problem is that people like you demand sequels and they should be made everything was fine. I was I was never demanding a sequel I've been excited for the sequel though it was announced we've had to edit these episodes several times to remove your demands they're getting increasingly. Violent. My demand for this game increases. If you're if you're an Egyptian prime subscriber, you dame, it's eighteen minute weekly rant on spunky to yeah they go to edit editor. Yup you can download them. Eric while you're excited for this game looks like it has more digging. Know. It's all about systems. Interacting with each other in in unexpected surprising things on your quest to reach the end of the game. So I'm just excited for all the new stuff that they're going to add to the game. Off many many different ways to unexpectedly die during a I love spunky and. I was just joking about all that before I think the cool thing about spunky is the thing I like about Mario Brothers Games where it's like. So focused on secret stuff and as people discovered all the secrets. That that probably alone gave me hope that this game would just be like just full of like crazy cool Meta difficult things to accomplish. That that's why I needed a sequel, you catch all the seeking discover all the secrets you need more secrets. To. Shoot up date. They're like we added a bunch of secret stuff. That's the patch notes like that's the patch. This passes a secret. Good candidate for guides him. It is it is although it's kind of a it's really hard to write guides for Rogue Lakes because I'm you can kind of like classify like eventually with speeding this game became really interesting spunky because. You know there was like a type of orientation of the first level that like made sense to not restart on I think. That's really cool. Right. People basically start breaking the game to figure that stuff out but otherwise, you just gotta be like. You might see a snake. Not If. You know there's there's like a shortcuts to people could take that are built into the game that aren't yet I don't break the game. Yeah. You can tell people never to pick up certain weapons and stuff like that I. Think there is a There's an element to that type of strategy guide writing, which is interesting because there's there's a there's a public out there that I know people don't don't expect this. But it's true that just read from start to finish a game skied while they play it and I did that when I when I was a kid rock Tynan skied and didn't lessen my enjoyment of the Game I. Love The indepth page by page look at all the stuff in this game aspect that guy and people like that. So that's different from like a spunky guide readers like here's some tips. Good luck. And then apparently also. The Sony State of play today it was announced at Alan wake is coming to control DLC. Correct, but we don't have more information than that. Yeah. Honestly. I had like a I haven't been able to watch state of play in its entirety myself, but it was narrated to be my friendly gears. He makes an appearance and it has been long speculated that the DNC in meant in question would be across over with Alan. Wake. So this kind of confirms it but apparently, the trailer did not divulge much more about like. Easter kind of character or is this going to be like a playable character or villain may be and I? I guess I didn't catch this while I was playing control but I suppose or maybe I don't remember but I suppose we're a lot of references to a writer. So that's why we're the relations coming
Breaking Down Beyonce's 'Black is King'
"In my life is talking about this. Beyonce's film that dropped on Disney Plus and so yesterday, Okay, I need to watch this. I must watch it. It's very similar to lemonade. It's a visual album, and I didn't realize this and I probably should have connected the dots before, but she was so inspired by being in line King. That there's lying King in Black is king. So you hear Simba like Morphosis talking in the beginning, and I'm like, Why is move faster here and then Nala And then later on, she's talking about the Matanza. And there's Timonen Put Mamba and so first that was like, Oh, okay, I get it. Now I get why it's wanted us to be plus so going into it. Had you done much reading on it, or you kind of just went in and then maybe checked on some stuff afterward. Sounds like Yeah, I checked on stuff afterward. That's generally what I like to do just to kind of make sure you know, kind of get a Clean slate while I'm watching it going, okay? This is how I feel about it versus you know, being tainted by somehow lately I'm the same way use. Yeah. The only thing that I heard before my brother had watched it before me, and he just said you must watch it. And so there you go. That's all I heard. But so compared tto lemonade. What was the experience like? It was similar in the sense that there are a lot of Visually. It's stunning, absolutely gorgeous. I mean, you just think about just her accessories and fashion how many racks they needed Because every scene she had a few different outfits that she wore huge outfits of tulle and Metallic puffy sleeves and lace. And just just imagining that alone is Lau and then I also wonder if her mom designs a lot of her clothing. How involved Tina? Her mom, you know was in the process, so just that alone. Stunning and the story itself. She kind of expands on the Lion King story. But there there were a couple moments now, First of all, Let me just say this, too. I love Beyonce. So I'm looking at it through those colored that vision, you know, because I know that she is gets a lot of pushback for you know, trying to be too perfect and I do feel like it must be exhausting to be Beyonce because she she always looks amazing. She always looks amazing. You know, that's what we expect from her. We expect it to be like just perfect pristine and she did deliver that. You know, so At the same time, you know, I do see that At one point, I was watching it on hills like, Oh, there she goes again, You know, like she's looking absolutely gorgeous. And you know, it's really Beyonce focused, and it really starts that way so she isn't and it's available. On Disney, so you can watch me. Plus? Yes. Yep. You can watch the whole thing. It's It's almost two hours. I want to say, Oh, wow. It's Yeah. Oh, Is there an album that you can video like, 10 minutes? Oh, no, no, it's a whole film. No, it's like a whole movie experience. Yep. Come and they're in with. There's a short song that she does with her husband be Jay Z. Forell is in it at one point to the one of the songs that kind kind of teared up a little because it felt so empowering. She's like a mood and it just Her daughters are in it as well and and her son, her kids, You can see them, Shell says. A song with Naomi Campbell and Lupita and Young Go and Kelly Rowland, and they're looking at each other. Just like you're so beautiful and, you know, felt like good sisterhood. And they all telling Beyonce she looks beautiful or each other. They're telling each other Okay. Build a little awkward to be like. Oh, well, I would like you to tell me how beautiful I am. You do feel that sense, though, because even when they're doing like group dances They're the dancers are all in one color. And then Beyonce's in a different shade of the same color or something completely different. Like a contrast as if that's what you're looking at. Yeah, you're just looking at Beyonce dancing, you know, so I mean, and the hair extensions alone. I can't even imagine there's one where she's on like a Uh, you know what the painters like some scaffolding and The hair is just Like two stories. It's super long
Mariko B. Ryan - The Opposite of Fear is Freedom
"Wondering if you could just stop by. Giving us a little bit of your background and might tell us about where you grew up. Sure. Thank you for having made by view if I may start with something slightly different, and then kind of Wolf into your question, it feels right this point knowing that you're gonNA have USTRALIAN lesson, and possibly some New Zealand looseness, listeners and Mahdi listeners live in Australia. To greet them out traditional way so if you don't mind to do that and they go into Chris Hayes. Yeah let me to buy a native. The Mahato Hawk of the cut th-wa. They not cut the auto thin lot further fatwa unlike a made Tina yet to. while. The Tate Ottawa. Took it. So I've just greeted them and let them know who I am. Tribal is speaking that I'm from the northern. Off said Ottawa, and what we, the in the region that we call tied, took it so I have placed myself now in a location. For your listeners. Thank you for that. We did I grow up now this this will take me out of my tribal in grew up in Oakland. I was a child of parents and grandparents who had been part of the Ibanez Ation Price Ace that occurred during the fifties and sixties so the government. Made some economic policy decisions, which made that many of my relations hedge leave tribal areas to find week. I'm a child of those. Generations brought up in Oakland end lift or conceivable years to Levin L appliances in new. Zealand as well which I think was a very positive thing to do to get out of a US associate like this. And experienced the region's. Pivotal years because they caused mess cultural disconnection. And, they enabled the government to grab huge tracts of land, making it impossible for many Erie tune in my family and my upbringing. was part of the impact where we could go what we call home to travel lanes, but we no longer had lanes the so we couldn't retuned to love. And sorts so that whole part of my life now I look at it. In terms of what historical periods did I grow up and? What was my experienced during that time had an impact Mian tombs of going forward as a young. Girl in thin woman unto the swilled. And what have I been able to extract? From the things that we'd lost by being why from l.? A. And I gained, so they were really interesting. Innovation Spring, curious in my growing up is. My Molly side. But we were really fortunate as well because my father and grandmother who lived close by maintained connections very strongly with a tribal areas, so we travel back and forth as whichever back and forth Tortuga liens constantly I remember vividly. It would take us more than twelve hours driving to get what is now about a five hour drive. And the roads were pretty rough, but it gave me a really sound connection to my roots, and we didn't become strangest to tribal land and to our entities. So in that respect. We were very fortunate. That wasn't the case for many of my relations who? Lived and different eras around the country, and many moved over to Australia and been have been unable to reconnect. Yes so, that's that's that Christian. Beautiful and sorry sounds like it was a real priority and our real conscious choice feel family that, even though they might have been physically moving away from these tribal lands that really wanted to maintain that connection, and as a what astray leading girl I'm really love to hear more about like what that looks like in your family life. It looks different now than it did when I was a child so when I was a child, I remember my my father, my my parents and his relations. Attending what will we code land meetings and Oakland so we're in a very politically charged time, so they were very conscious of the. Bureaucratic. Colson wheels that had been put in place to land off them. And they had to fight a beer credit in cool system in order to hold on to name, so there were several land to meetings are record as a child where people would get together and figure out how they were going to respond to a very complicated legal system that was biased against them. And so I remember very much being a part of that in an although I, was more likely to be outside playing with the other children I do recall many times sitting inside the Ramos Waylon this name. To what was being seed in also hearing? On natives because? Switching, languages constantly throughout the conversation which I said do it in a book. It's a kind of a reflection of my neighbors of how the language switching was to so fluid.
Tina Tchen, CEO of Times Up: Building Better Workplaces
"I WanNa talk about your advocacy work both as The work that you did especially with education girls or the first lady, but also in regards to what you're doing now at times up. We've heard this phrase. Come up when you when you think about what you were doing with them Mrs. Obama, which is the importance of measurable impact. What does that mean? I learned that from her by the way because she was very clear with us that we were going to design initiative for her to spend her time on that. You know it had to have measurable outcomes. She was not one for just a feel. Good campaign writer just appear campaign and had to be something that people on the ground could actually see the results and yet I also knew that. That when you're dealing with somebody like the first lady when you're dealing somebody with with folks like people who have been committed to times, You also need to do things that operate at scale because affecting just twenty or thirty people at a time wasn't going to be good enough and that's hard to do. It's hard to develop things that will operate at scale and yet have tangible measurable. Impact and that's sort of what we tried to do. Then with each of the initiatives that will be different. With let's move and joining forces for veterans and military families retire for kids to college, and then she reference, let girls learn which last one to support ellison education around the world, and then what I'm doing at times up right, which is also to be building better replaces that will finally end sexual harassment and supports interesting victims, not just one or two at a time, but it scale, and it workplaces across the country, and that's what I've been trying to do but it takes. You know takes really some careful thinking about. How do you craft not just a PR campaign on around issue, but actual strategic changes that will have lasting impact. How do you think your leadership style has changed from the White House Two Times up. A lot of what? I learned at the White House. I'm actually applying at times up in ways that I had no idea that I was going to. I had no expectation I'd never run them out for profitable for lots of that proper poor. I've been donors of that for profits on one fulltime before. This is new, but I'm finding. There's a lot a trick that is transferable from the White House to this. Like I said I mean I didn't realize, but I do think of my time leadership race of our founders, people like O'Brien John Under vibes and Katie McGrath and others through multiple industries, not just entertainment who have put their brands behind times up to power times up there like Mrs Obama there my principals, they are these folks who have tremendous voices megaphones, and they are willing to commit them two times up to whom I owed. The obligation asked the CEO, now of building strategies and messages campaigns that are. Are Worthy of their platforms and the trust that they have put in need to do that and be smart about it, and then I owe it to the millions of workers out there who are working for design strategies that will actually work for them. That aren't just a twitter campaign that are things that will bring paid sick. Leave to up right to speak of the issue that we're currently working on so vigorously in the middle of the Kobe nineteen precious you know our goal, there isn't just A. Headline around you know paid sick leave, but we need to actually have paid sick. Leave provided not just during the crisis, but on a permanent basis for worst. Tens of millions of workers across the country I mean here's the thing you know. As we emerge from the crisis, we're going to have to deal with these issues and make sure these issues are baffert just nice to do things when times are good now these are essential workplace bay basic functions that need to be incorporated in how we build our workplaces. Even as we're rebuilding after this crisis, because for example, if every company had had paid sick leave when we went into the crisis, we wouldn't be scrambling right now. Right they would have had those costs already baked into their business plans? Workers would already know they had paid sick leave and it'd be able to take it right when they got sick. Eight is a really stark example about why these issues around building better workplaces for employees or not just nice to do things they are essential to build resilient workforce's and workplaces for the future.
Achievement Vs. Fulfillment: Which Do You Want More?
"Right so. He has no last week at Lake POW with my family, and we had an amazing relaxing vacation, which is really good problem with the entrepreneurial brain. US EP entrepreneur personality types. When we try to relax, we can't and it drives US crazy. Because we gotta be moving forward momentum, right and so. I started thinking about projects and things I wanna to do things that are fun and like. I know some years know that I am working on eventually writing next book, which could be the bootstrap book Tunnicliffe Story, but the problem is Cleveland Stories and that done. Yes I. Don't know where it's going to go or source was kind of like this things in the back burner that I'm going to do someday. It's not a huge rush. But I'm excited for that, but I was like I almost any something fun to be creating right like I dunno, as a creator, I need to create sure has the same way right and and I'm creating. You know we have the New Tacoma Quebec's coaching programs creating a lot of fun i. want something just. Excited enjoy this is fun and lighthearted deadlines or thing just to create to create right. It's all I had an idea. For Project, I'm going to tell you the details, the name or anything. Other than it's, it's going to be the one and only time I ever talk about personal development. Anyway, right marketing guy that's. Sick with but obviously I've had access to a lot of people. Most people have access to in this world and its lifetime, and had a chance to learn from some amazing people and. Wanted to create this thing I don't know what it's GonNa. Be I duNNo, if it's a real book of it's like a book feminine, just giving away for free as the lead magnet, I have no idea. But. The title I'll tell you. The subtitle subtitle is the science of achievement. The art fulfillment in Vero Tony Robbins Talk. He talks about a lot of times to master masters signs of achievement where the had know the science and how to achieve anything, and then you have to master the art of fulfillment and funny, because he talks about a lot of times, but always struggle with that personally. Because he doesn't go deep into the whole thing you know, and so at Lake Powell this week thinking about this sure thing about the art and the science. And the science of treatment is lost. If I talked about anyway, you know here's the step-by-step, I? Here's the things you need to do things in this order and you have success, but the article films I personally struggle with like I'm such an achiever. I want to this this this and you. What's next on each next thing the next thing he moving towards? Running towards this this invisible goal that we don't really know what it is. I think a lot has producers and entrepreneurs and people like me and probably you. With the film, and like, how do you feel fulfilled and cinching? Is that the article film? It's tough because it's like art. It's not like the science sciences like here's the things to do to get the thing like this art fulfillment and I've always struggled and so as I was thinking about putting together this project. I started thinking about that and I started. Just think signs of cheating. My brain goes GonNa Mike Okay. I'm Jim achiever. Boom here's the thing. But then I started realizing that like the the the path of achievement the article film. It's almost the opposite like a union being and I served Rosina's like. Oh my gosh, they're looking deeper. Different topics have been concepts I was like. Oh, my gosh is true and so many things. Then you realized before so for example. This example shared kind of help s even what I'm. I had. Everyone talks about morning routines right. If you follow any of the fitness, guys, a health and fitness, the bio hackers the the entrepreneurs they all talk about you gotTa have more routine Tina's structure and things like that? You GotTa wake and you gotTa know. This always seems right. Talked about morning and starts accusing to do before you go to bed to increase your sleep patterns in all sorts, and and that's very scientific writes the science of achievement like do you want to have more success? You create habits. Can Habits been creating a routine thirteen? You stick the routines I think that outcome and eventually you have success, right and other big believer that actually so I'm making fun of by any stretch. It is part of the. The the science of Chiba having that right so if you by the way struggled achieving things in the past, maybe because you don't have. Scientific like you just do these things and the outcome happens just magic. It! Just it just works. So there's a science of the problem though is, is it doesn't create fulfillment. Stickney for second I did a podcast about this six months ago or something. I was in I was in. I was in Puerto Rico with brand new Bouchard big. Bunch people and one of the guys there there's getting create. Clements and Craig was We're sitting there and he started talking about. Our brains where he said you know a lot of. Older. Years of getting shorter wait times flying rallies, and actually true, so the reason why is because your brain looks for patterns of the same thing happening over and over and over again deletes them. because. It's like I. don't even remember this because dude. Every single morning we do see every single week every single thing. As, we said he said so literally, your brain is deleting nothing's happening, and so your life seems shorter because it literally is shorter because those memories, it's like Hey, every morning from nine from seven ten, the same things under remember this because the same deleted, and so because you use five hours in your memory every day and see life years go faster days go faster faster and your life goes faster. He said that the problem is he's like he's like. If you. If you want to extend you, know, extend time You have to create called him event horizons! PODCAST? Talk a lot about him, but it was interesting because he's like this mastermind group in the very first year we did it. We all in Wyoming would flew helicopters shotguns. We rode horses.

So this was when she went to the shelter and tried to check in Tessa Gaymond. So according to Katrina, Tina refused to stay at the shelter, and the two girls walked back to a corner and Tina told Katrina that her marijuana had been laced with something and she was starting to hallucinate. Katrina stayed with Tina until close to sunrise. Then a dark truck pulled over and waved to Tina. She walked over in hopped. Right in. So saw police car follow the truck and she was relieved by that.

"Hello There Jenny Falkiner back here to welcome you into the run club of the podcast world at run pods been going quite a a few months now and already. I have experienced firsthand. How it's actually uniting people? There are people who listen while they run then. There are people who who listens to get motivated to run and then there are those non runners who listen and I want to run so for instance. My mom never ever did that. I think Dave where she went. Quite trying this running malarkey. Well it's actually happened on my husband. He is running a five k fairly regularly early and again. This is something nobody saw coming. So here's the thing I've learnt is that runner's unite and it doesn't matter what level of running your at the fat. The you run gets you in the guy you qualify and someone who is in touch with the running community more than most is my guest today. Eh Tina Moore is a runner. Who has her own running podcast? We should actually be rivals. Why are you here is cold running for real? And it's been going for quite quite some time. When did it start two and a half years old two and a half years ago? It's also is huge in the states by the way where Tina is based and you tackle of running related today. Shoes welcomes Rod. First of all by the way thank you. I'm excited to be a very excited to have you. And what is it your listeners like hearing ah when it comes to running I think I cover a lot of the things that people are either the too afraid to talk about or just kind of feel uncomfortable talking about states things the the whole reason. It's called running for real. It's those things that run as experienced but we kind of may not feel the confidence to be able to actually say yeah. I do that too like bathroom mysteries. That tends to be a good example. Oh we everyone loves to talk about the but lots of people do have the guts to talk about. If you listen to the episode with Ben Shepard we have a whole discussion. Melania on yeah about how you have to run with twenty P in her pocket just in case but it is an issue people. People do to call runner's trots. This is very very early to get into Well here I did. I feel so much more scared when I'm in England than when I'm in America because America this fast speed restaurants everywhere you know you can always get into McDonalds or something like that but hey I felt like you kind of have to plan a little bit and if you even get ah warning sign you. You'd better move you'll re- to somewhere that gives you a safe option so pleased you set that because I do have a running the tapes me. Pass the McDonalds and everyone laughs. Laugh south choice you have to you. Have you have Tennessee one place. You can go into where they don't really raised my heaven and you always pretend you for water or some Now I just kind of like what Pasta in Ohio pretend. I'm just waiting for some chicken nuggets. Now obviously do it and I just go to the toilet run on wonder if anyone if you go into a McDonalds and they think well that that Kinda doesn't make sense you've gone for your run and you come in here to get some McDonalds but okay but then they see like go left and then they're like Oh that's another one I do. I think there's probably tons of the famine. The buzz have come clean. It must be. There's plenty of his and so can I ask. Why did you start? Running import costs are no way I did mine stars. Well actually I highlighted a running put costs before this one. I think it was two thousand fifteen I I was working for a company in the US running company and they had to put cost and he said to me my boss you can either. Takeover are running put cost or you can do. He's some kind of video channel and I didn't have the slightest thing about video and are not really someone who Tends to you know get dressed up every day. I'm very much As I am as you see right now my hair is curly and is kind of wild And so I thought you know what put costs. I don't know what that is but I know it's just voice so I so I started that and that's where I kind of got the hang of podcast and I quite liked it and then when I went out with my iron than mine started so that was just kind of a continuation of that right so you kind of got flavor for and thought I can do this and my own terms talk about. I want to yeah because you are a runner and although we live in the state you're from here. Oh Yes oh you're out to be. Tell me about your running. When did you start? I've told the story a few times. I remember starting running running. I remember hiding in the toilets not wanting to be on the cross country team when they were doing the trials or wherever they were called to be on the cross country team head in the toilet so I didn't had no interest in being on the team and then I seem to just kind of blackout and suddenly I was on the team like I don't. I don't remember going from peak losses to on on the team but some somehow I ended up on the team and I remember running around my local town of Saint Albans and I finished fourth and I thought is pretty good and so that's kind of the moment I remember thinking like okay. I think I can do this. How old are you them? Fourteen fourteen to just started from that because then since and And you've not only become pretty good at you've actually represented great. Britain has. Yeah that was my proudest moment official. So when was that that was March what twice. Much two thousand sixteen and then July. The same year gave which sham events for those in The world half marathon championships were in Cardiff Artif- and people may remember that if they like watching events like that It was a horrible day like really windy really code and I remember seeing the video of Mo- running along with some other Kenyan athletes I think and he got like they got blown to the side of the road during on the screen let you sort of wind gusts so it was a horrible the day but for me like if anyone in the fight of me finishing a you probably seen it at some point I have the biggest smile on my face so I didn't was that Glee because you were taking part or Leagues League because you'd finished. Oh just the fact that I heard like little kids going go. GP that for me was the dreamlike foam that fourteen years old that became the dream run for great the world championships. Wow so impressive and so how did you do. Not Haitian I was forty nine th and I was I was happy with that because I was third Brit in in and out five and I was only code up to go on that team three days before the race. So I I flew in. I'm from America. Three days might have been two days before the race And so they just called me because someone was ill or something like that so to do to to come in the last minute. I was really happy with that. And then the one I did a few months later in Amsterdam was a European Athletics Championships. that one I felt like I am. Ah The other one felt like I was kind of a sub so then the second one was also kind of more meaningful in some way. Would I do have a really interesting story about that. One if you want to hear okay gopher okay so for that one. I was Amsterdam and everyone drinks coffee everywhere and I got used to having my one coffee a day but I didn't realize Amsterdam. The coffees are really small have etiquette. Well they're tiny little espresso cups so when I push the button in the hotel to get my coffee I pushed it and it came out and I thought one of US really small. They've any given me as like a tiny one so I pushed again on a pushed again. So you had a triple hits Yup of full-fat full-strength Caffeine Yep and so I was and it was really hot and I just was totally out of it. I remember saying to my husband when I was warming up like something is wrong with me like I don't feel right. You're totally buzzing. I think I think I'd gone the other way I think I'd kind of like crushed but I run really fast. No I felt I felt terrible from step one to the finish like it was just. If I wasn't running Gbi a hundred percent I would have dropped out. Wow but you but you did you carry on yeah and again because of fourth bread but it was it was rough day see how amazing to compete for your country. I mean that's you're really good runner. I mean if we just go through your running credibility Latino rookie right. We're GONNA do time so if you're running now and say you're just going like five K.. Or you're running. You're running for half an error. Could you ten. CAIN Hafner No I couldn't I might. Fossils was thirty three minutes. Oh disappointing now I can get us. That's amazing thirty three minutes. What's your best five K.? Time Sixteen O Eight. Oh I read Justin Sane and you're half marathon one thirteen one thirteen eighteen and your marathon t t six. I mean all these times are just. This is the kind of stuff that I dream of. I mean it is literally only a dream agreements because it takes a lot of law effort. Oh Yeah it definitely is a go. Ho- wealth I know your family's world is is consumed by OTA is interesting. You say that and I right we do this. AS Roma's I felt the need neely to qualify myself. Like when you were saying about being foster was named like but you know Charlotte produce running to twenty four or whatever Ebbert is like. It's hot as run as we do that so much and I I had to stop myself just then of being like well. It's not that fast. But we do that. You do that too with probably people who run four and a half hour. Marathon is They think what you do is absolutely incredible. I know but you never I think maybe that's it. You're never satisfied the time you've do you think could have done better but at the time you you you actually couldn't because you would've if you could have run faster at that time you would have absolutely don't have but it's only in hindsight your life. I know I actually I kind of eased off a little by the time and didn't fill it up and hindsight I walked for that little bit. Marijuana Prohibition Dema I think I could have seats eight save thirty seconds news all those little things and if anyone is listening and they're going for a run okay. What would your top tips? Be to them. If they're Calleja. I mean I feel like I have to do this. I don't know if it can be bullard. We'll firstly you're not align. I think we all feel like that especially coming from an elite background. People look elite runners and they think oh. It looks easy you just jogging along. I'm not an even if people say they are. They're not still having hot days. So you'll you'll one of many a and you're going to have many of these days but what I remind people have days that When you just really not feeling it is that these days that matter on race day if you had haddon entirely perfect build up everything when exactly right you'd actually have a lot harder over time on the day the new would hud? You had things gone wrong because then you could say well. I went through this to get hero. I became this injury or remember that really rainy day where I had to get twenty miles in freezing but I did it so be grateful for these these days because the days that are just really bad and making you feel Tougher for when it comes to the day that actually matters you've built some toughness. The DASA also really good way of looking at and also by the way I also find that sometimes you go and like I went I when I was training for the marathon. I was meant to be a long run day and I got really bad. Stomach ache and I was so upset because I knew how to do this. Long run by physically. I felt dreadful. And then I felt guilty for not carrying on uh-huh and I actually phone someone to say is all right not to do this today. Yeah of course I wouldn't monitoring or policing other than yourself and now you feel let you have to explain yourself then. You're you're like well you know this happened and that happened and I just was like fine. Don't run then in your head. You won't someone's let's go newest. Obviously find your role right. I feel it and I think that's a lot of people. There's a lot of guilt enroll manner. Oh Yeah and for people who don't run they don't they come. I like just take a day off or just stop. If you don't feel right what do you stop button and actually I had a psychologist. Oh my cost. He was talking about this and he was saying about how in most other sports. If something's going wrong or they they're not feeling it kind of say all right we'll cut it here but run is just get through it like it doesn't matter if it's raining it doesn't matter fits fits if you have a stomach bug you on. Maybe not stomach bug. But if your stomach's bothering you you might go to the toilet and then carry on So we just kind of get on with things wchs which is a good thing I think does that mean that we we say we as runners like having the we are on our project. You're just faster that soul is but do you think we as runners are art tougher than those other sports. Is that what it is..

You don't have to do this having to appear in the news. It comes from Peter Gross quick. What would you do if you were attacked by a bear. You don't have time to think. Do you run through stick at it. Jangle your keys in its general direction. Shen or do you do something more. Shall we say Unconventional Brandon laddy twenty seven year old man from Prince George British Columbia is safe and sound after he and a friend had a harrowing harrowing encounter with a black bear at the Ferguson Lake Nature preserve the immediately ran away but the bear gave chase when they split up the bear ignored his friend and was right eight on top of Laddy who presumably smells more like food. I almost got stuck in a swampy area. Laddy told the website BBC local news and the bear was on my back. I jumped into the water with no oh game plan but he came up with a game plan when the bear caught up with him and was holding him under the water. laddy scared that he was going to die was able to get his head above water for just a moment and Vinnie turned to the bear looked him square in the eye and said you don't have to do this now while they do keep record record for most home runs touchdowns shortest time as White House communications director no one has definitively determined the stupidest thing ever said to a bear but this has got to be in the top ten miraculously though the bare backed off. Maybe it was batty's dramatic scolding or maybe it was the fact that women showed up just at that moment with her dog who who barked and scared the bear off but honestly I feel bad for the bear which is a more embarrassing story to tell your buddies about to eat. This guy in dog scared me off or for that was brought to this guy but then he looked in the eyes and told me I didn't have to do it and it really made me think these are your choices the phrase you don't have to do this showed up in the news. This week wasn't from Adam felber. What the most Florida Lord of men ever to go on a Florida Man Caper said to the police got him audience likes that was it from Helen Hong a diet APP up calls you don't have to do this which tries to shame people into not eating and just makes them mad or from.

I really like the floor the bear the bear you like Peter Story the run the guy who fended off the bear with Tom UTICA reasoning well to bring you. The real answer are we spoke to someone very central to the real story is holding onto water on you. Don't have that was brandon. Lady the man himself talking about how he told a bear which you may not have been able to hear was holding him underwater. He's sort of put his head out of the water and said you don't have to do this to the bear and he survived. You got it right. Peter was telling the truth he gets appoint. You Win our our prime anybody you like in the show on your voicemail saying leave a message for emily but you don't have to do this. Fighting exciting -gratulations emily bye bye and now the game where we ask people who've gone a long way to make a short little detour. Tina Charles grew up across the river in a little town called Queens and was already a legend in highschool for her basketball skills. She went onto star at Uconn them went number one in the W. NBA draft. He got two Olympic gold medal he won W NBA rookie of the year and the MVP award which is now the starting center for the New York Liberty. Tina Charles welcomed the wait. Wait the always ask this of elite athletes when I get to meet them. How young were you when you knew you. Were really good at this. That's how Oh really. I feel like every time you I felt that I was getting better. There was a reason why I wasn't there was a coach. There was a person to remind me to stay humble so so I wanNA say around. The time high school graduated high school. I was one of the top players and then I got to Yukon where there's other top players. I had to learn what it took to play hard it really. I feel like nothing came easy for me. I was going to the parks in New York. I was the last one picked. There was different teams that I tried out for that. I didn't make I had to hone in on my skill. I had to be in the gym early before class. I would try to go to the park early so I had humble beginnings for myself. Okay 'cause here's like there are many differences between you and myself but other than the foot in height palm in one of them is is that when I was a kid and I tried to play sports and didn't get picked and I was like this is dumb and I went to the librarian stayed there so until like a week ago just got out but you said you were like not pick you the WNBA MVP was not picked for the teams when it really picking players and your reaction go. I just need to practice more to get better pick next time yeah exactly. I just stayed on the court until I did get back there. That's amazing Peter. Peter doesn't even me that if you've been I understand that would've been reversed. She would have been interviewing. I have to ask you this now that you're a star. You're very successful athlete as well. Do you go back to the playgrounds where you grew up and go. Hey anybody want to remember when you didn't pick me thank you for. I hope the people who didn't pick your still on that playground. The only thing that I still do that I did as a kid is always on the subway. I'm always taking the train refuse to drive I'm your average New Yorkers traffic so it was anything that I still do. I'm Zillow as either on the line. See You name it. I'm just imagining you standing in the subway reaching reaching down to hold the strap. I have to say I mean there are a lot of differences between the two styles of play in the NBA and the WNBA is the best thing about playing playing in the WNBA. The fact that drake doesn't show up at your you know and it's actually a shame because nurse who's a fantastic player all-star starter she's in her second year. She's from Canada so I'm actually expecting to seizure at the game so drake and he always listens drake the we're expecting you at the next liberty game. Show on up. Take a subway drake. They'll get there faster. What is the dumbest question that people ask you about playing in the WNBA. Tell me question Is it one that you've heard in the last five minutes. I have a list of questions here and I'm going to knock man. I can't I duNno. I think every question is is a good question. There are really some individuals who who don't know that you know play basketball that there is a professional league so I'm very I like Sanlitun them. You know I don't take it hasn't job like tell them yes. Oh you're so diplomatic been probably the nicest most sort of friendly diplomatic person I've ever interviewed. We had not been able able to entice you to say a bad thing about anyone which I admire because we've tried very hard on the court. Is that what you're like. I wouldn't say I wouldn't say so. No Oh okay put put ten shells on the court. Another side of you comes out. Do you in fact trash-talk. No trust talking now is just try to just yeah but yeah better better silent cluster so your attitude what you're saying. Is your attitude. When you get on the court has not these are all valuable people who were pursuing their careers? I respect back. That's not what you wanted to ask here in Newark as someone who grew up in Queens did you have an impression of New Jersey. I it did and keeping in mind your somebody who can stand there and the paint and just take it from the opposition. Are you willing to say what you thought of New Jersey due to.
