Now this arrest in california shows that somebody is incentivized or at least maybe. He did this on his own. We don't know to go get ballots now.

Symptoms of Mold Exposure
"Two questions one. What are some of the symptoms of mold exposure and to can a family that lives in the same house. Have one person that has symptoms of mold exposure while other people in the family don't and then to expound on that. If i'm thinking answer's yes if so why does it happen. Okay so yes. You're correct answers. Yes basically how this works. Everybody has their own you know immune systems and their own. Let's call him talk city levels right. You have thresholds certain people are gonna reach those thresholds fashion others and there's so many variables right so for instance if the husband or wife getting. Let's say and they're not feeling well a could be because when they were a kid they were exposed to environmental exposures. That kind of are at that helped them reach that threshold sooner than the other person so not point there they have. They're having these exposures they're starting to just it just gets triggered it gets exacerbated and essentially they start feeling these effects way worse than than some other people i. I noticed usually in a family of four. It's usually one of four or two of the four that are not feeling well and the other two are typically fine which can make things a little difficult in terms of just getting that support system that you need. It's hard to. It's hard to support someone around. Something you haven't experienced yourself aren't human nature. Essentially what are the symptoms of a range. I would say the biggest implants that year of our brain fog. Chronic fatigue syndrome have eczema skin. Rashes is etcetera. You have definitely cognitive impairment on top of the brain fog.

GOP Recall Candidate Larry Elder Aims to Help Voters ‘Connect the Dots’
"Welcome back. This is ed morrissey of hot air dot com filling in for hugh today and welcoming our great friend larry elder to the show. Give us a check in on the california recall effort and his gubernatorial run. Larry great to talk to you today to thank you for having me appreciate it. So what is going on in the campaign here. I mean you've really shaken things up here you've you i think reenergize the whole recall effort by jumping into this. And i'm i'm thrilled for your for the energy that you're bringing into this. How how are you seeing things out there in the campaign trail well so far so good the polls show that. I'm head of my republican rivals. But that really isn't the issue the issue is the first part of the battle is very simple. Do you want this man. Gavin newsom recalled it fifty percent plus one voted So the second question is whom do you want to replace him now unless fifty percent plus one says they want to re recall gavin newsom. It doesn't matter however republicans do and that's why i'm urging all of my republican rivals to keep your eye on the prize and the prize. If you have a nuisance surprised is the two point. Two million californians that signed the petition to get this guy out at least a quarter than it or independence and democrats. Who voted for him. Two years earlier the are angry about the corona virus mandates then only angry about the mandates are angry about the accuracy. You know he said up there that french laundry restaurant with the very people that drafted the mandates violating the mandates not wearing masks and that socially meanwhile his own two kids were enjoying in-person private education or at least slammed down education for everybody else in the state now the educational system already pretty bad especially for urban students seventy five percent of black boys believe it or not in california cannot read at state levels of proficiency and those levels. Ain't very high. Nearly half of third graders cannot read it they levels of proficiency and they lost a whole year of school learning three hundred thousand public school teachers. It is estimated by everybody. I talk to that. At least five percent of them are incompetent. That fifteen thousand teachers who are not be teaching now that we're the lapd there's roughly ten thousand officers lapd had. Let's assume five percent of them were bad. That's five hundred officers that are planting evidence or engaging in excessive force racially profiling. We wouldn't put up with it. We're putting up with fifteen thousand. They had teachers. Many of whom ended up In the inner city they're not in the west side not in the valley there in the inner city. That's why two thirds of black parents. According to a recent report i read do not want to send their kids back to the los angeles school district in the fall. They argue that the teachers end up in the schools that need them. The most and this is the teacher's union They are the largest funder of my opponent. Gavin newsom they adamantly opposed choice in school because they know that the teachers will not automatically be union members and they won't automatically get those dues. So i am an adamant. Adamant adamant proponent of choice in public school and my opponent is opposed to it.
"two questions" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030
"I have two questions, and I think you know, maybe maybe there's a couple of other people that need to be illuminated. Because we haven't paid such close attention to this except to see some of these Images and testimonies. But exactly worked is the point Today of this test, these people testifying Well, there is a what has happened was that the House speaker? Uh, and decided that Congress Wanted to have a, um like, uh, an investigation. Okay, So this is a select committee that was voted on by Congress. Uh, And as in any other committee in Congress, there's a certain number of Democrats in a certain number of Republicans, and since the Democrats hold the majority of thin majority in the House They get a majority of members on the committee. And the purpose here is to find out According to what I understand is what happened. How did it happen? Why was it not prevented from happening? Uh And how do we make sure it doesn't happen again? Those sort of you know, there was there was a problem and And the purpose I assume, is too they begin today, just like any trial lawyer would in a trial. They began to tell the story. Today. They did a 3.5 hour hearing, which they had four Members of law enforcement to members of the Capitol police and two members of The city. The city of Washington Police Department come and testify as to what happened to them. And so this was the opening of this committee and I believe that this committee is going to go on for a long time. Um, and it will actually write a report. To what end to write Well to write a report one try to correct things. If there was information early on, which was ignored. Why was it ignored? The same as like a 9 11 commission. We know what happened. Now we have to know why did it happen? Was this just coincidence that these are 500? People decided they were going to storm the capital. I don't think so. I mean, no. Yeah. What sort of coordination was and certainly, um the the Democrats made it pretty clear today. That they wanted to find out. Um what was going on in the White House on January 6th once The problem started. Yeah, That was my second question, Dan. Yeah. Mhm. It's going to be a strange question, but I have to ask your what I mean. This didn't happen by accident. Obviously up right from stood in that square or wherever exactly, he said. I'm not sure I hadn't had his Let out whatever he had to say it slow Look way And the next thing you know, uh, this happened.
Israel's Health Experts Warn ‘Long Months’ Ahead in Battling Delta Variant
"There on hewitt. Thank you for joining the hugh hewitt show. I'm joined by. Dr michael oren former israeli ambassador to the united states. He is now in israel. Hello doc orrin good morning. Good afternoon the morning hue to it. I've got two questions for you. The first half to do with the return of cova de israel. The delta variant is surging. California's got los angeles. That go back to mass mandate half of america is an got to vaccines or fully vaccinated with one john. Jay shot and therefore it's ravaging the unvaccinated india's got three million dead. What's the situation in. India and in israel and inter we have the highest level of action seems last march about fourteen hundred people per day. But the number of people actually hospitalized ventilate is very very low I think there's a fear among the health. Experts at this can get out of control very very fast. We don't clamp down now. We'll lose that control People very nervous You know we're finally getting back on our feet getting through recuperate from the losses of two thousand twenty one and twenty twenty and and here we are getting slapped down again and You know speaking berkeley out of my work as international airport open. Well you know it's interesting to me that i. I wrote a piece for the washington post this week. We don't know what the absolute variant will be very up to omega but it is entirely possible that one of them have aids the vaccines unless we shut it down now. It could go very bad on us. We're just sort of assuming the worst is behind us. That's a human sort of natural bias towards best case scenario but there is no best case scenario. There's only what's gonna happen. Michael do the israelis that we get it. But i think the defense. Here's because among young people. The young people paying the price for elderly people and that This is a new reality. Amer just going to have to live with it. And i hear that from young israeli after the youngest rarely And not just young people
Q&A: Is My Side Hustle Too Niche?
"And thinking about starting a side hustle selling candles for women specifically to black women with quotes of inspiration and all work with the potential to expand to question plates. My question is is this to niche. Why restricting myself by being so narrow. I made a few candles to friends and family who loved them. But i'm sure if this is a hobby rather than an actual business great to hear your thoughts and thank you very much for your show salena. Thank you so much for listening. Thanks for calling in and this is an interesting scenario because there are actually two questions here. First question is. Is it a hobby or a business. This particular project and the second one is specific idea to niche or to specialized. So i want to focus on the second because for the first. That's kind of up to selena. It's one of those projects that could be a business or it could just be a hobby. So that's gonna come down to what her specific goals are for the purpose of the question. Let's assume that she does want it to be a business. Is her product or market to niche. Is it too specialized. I don't think so. But i would suggest she thinks of the market a little bit differently so she talks mostly about the product but product and market are connected. The candles include quotes of inspiration in artwork featuring black women and selena mentioned the market. Being black women. I would suggest that she keeps the product the same but think of the market a bit differently i would actually think of the market a bit more broadly partly because over the past year. There's been a lot more awareness and sensitivity to racial issues Books by black authors in particular have greatly outsold most other books at least many other books. There were a number of weeks on the new york times bestselling list where more than five of the books were by black. Authors also just heard anecdotally from black creators and entrepreneurs side slows in our community that they have seen increased general interest in their products. And i desire from a lot of people to buy black or to support artists of color or makers creators of color

So I remember in the 50 60 seventies. When the media was leaned left, But you could still find out what was going on in the world. You can't find out what's going on in the world with the media the way it is today. Let's take what you were talking about. Did we finance The development of this virus. In what? Well, not only did we finance it, the second question is, did we then try and cover it up there when I was being finance it and then try and conceal it. That's the story of the

What's the Objective When Presenting an Oral Defense?
"May thirty first twenty twenty one today. I want to talk about the main purpose of presenting an oral defense.

You're putting together ideas in your slides in your powerpoint presentation that number one you have included your research questions just before the method section number two that those research questions are in fact being answered in your results and discussion section. Sometimes it happens where at the end of this whole process. We still are going back to our research questions to slightly modify to tweak maybe tighten our research questions to make sure that we are directly answering those questions. That's very important sometimes. This might mean merging questions. Maybe you're combining two questions into one question maybe. In some cases you're completely removing

He needs to us figures out how to roll the game back to a previous edition. Now he knows how to launch the game with these modifications so he can play his own levels on the game. Keep in mind. This had nothing to do with school this nothing to do with any requirement. This was just something that he wanted to do something that he is naturally gifted at and naturally naturally passionate about and that is that's what that's one of the things i wanna point out here. Today is your passion in life is most likely going to be something that you are naturally geared toward you are naturally good at and maybe even it may even be something that you have spent a lot of time practicing and preparing at and you've spent a lot of time working on developing that skill. It could be anything from woodworking to the medical field to an to. I'm the the passion ideas for your life are virtually endless. But you heard me referenced. The nine line framework earlier. And as i look at this nine line framework. You know again. It's it's this step by step guide. It is the process that helps you rediscover passion in your life after the military. And i look at these these lines in here. These chapters and the storage is told about my son. I can see him in these chapters. I can see how his passion is coming out just in the things that he is naturally doing now in the last episode i mentioned and talked about quite a bit actually line four. Which is what is my personality type. you know. why does it matter. And it's not even so much. Why does it matter. But how does that. Impact me and my passion and my purpose for life. And so i'm going to touch on line for a little bit today but i want to give you some examples from line five later in the show about discovering that passion in your life but line four again i used sixteen personalities dot com. You can go there right now. You can take this free assessment to figure out to learn what your personality type is and again that is not the only tool you can use you. Can use myers briggs. You can use the disk assessment. There are so many tools you can use to figure out your personality because in the military unless you are you had a way different experience than i did. They really ask you. What your what your passion was or even more specifically. They didn't ask what your personality was. Just said hey here the jobs you can pick from pick a job do your job and then you go your military career and you get out and now you're here listening to this show and saying man. How do identify my passion in life. What is it that i am passionate about. How do i find that. Well you'll hear me say this more than once. Pick up a copy of the resolve book. That is really your first step to figuring out your passion and your purpose and your meaning in your life after the military but again light for just goes over. What is your personality type. It walks you through that process of discovering who you are and who you're meant to be and line five asks another question it says what do i have to offer. And that's very specific to you. What do you have to offer the world. Because i believe that. A life focused on making a difference in the world as a life worth living. I think that's really what we're all after is that we want to make a difference. Maybe it's just in our own personal lives. Maybe it's in the lives of our friends or family or our church or our school whatever it may be or or if your teacher may be your students you want to make that positive impact and so line five walks you through that process of figuring out what it is that you have to offer so coming up after the break. That's what i'm going to talk about. I'm gonna share some examples and walk you through blind five and sharing this for free and you can pick up a copy of the book on amazon or on kerr's to fight again dot com but i'm gonna share the the line five here with you and some examples that can help you figure out what it is you are passionate about in your life. That's after the break. Stay with us. Many americans today. Don't realize the stress and anxiety they feel is most likely because of their finances according to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others.

You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right so as we go into these examples. I want you to have an open. Mind here right some of these examples. You may not even thought of. But i i want you to keep in mind that some of these may not apply to you. Some of the may apply to you perfectly but before we get into those examples and went to review. Read you this quote from a retired general martin. Dempsey actually had him on the show. A few seasons ago A great conversation. You can go check that out. He talks about you know continuing to provide leadership in your post military life again. If you don't know years he is the former or the lissi would number was of eighteenth chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and so again great guy. We had a great conversation. Should go check that out. But i want to read you a quote. He said sometimes we wait for thunderclaps drum rolls and clearly on calls to alert us to what's important when actually it's most often the subtle and persistent signals around us. That make the most difference. I want you to think about that for a minute when you think about your passion and life and what. You are naturally geared toward what are those subtle and persistent signals. So in in the book. I talk about the subtle and persistent signal. I got even as a child as a teenager. Really that writing is something i am. Naturally gifted at is something. I'm naturally good at in fact My mother found a poem that i had written She was cleaning. My room was teenagers. Don't ask me why she was cleaning my room and she didn't make me do it but i'm very grateful for her but she was cleaning my room and she comes into the room and she sees this poem that i wrote and when i get home from school she asked me about it. She says hair. Where did you copy this phone for. Almost didn't copy it. I wrote it. And i'm all of a sudden proud of myself because see my mother had always been this voracious reader with a strong command of the english language so hearing her say something like that. Which implied the poem was of this incredibly high quality right. It has stuck with me to this day. That aaron you you're naturally gifted at that and that the poetry. It wasn't anything i had to do. It was something i had in my head and maybe even my heart and just wrote it down. It was something. I felt naturally wrong to do. Just like my son was naturally drawn to develop this modification for this game and figure out all the additional software he needed and how to modify it and how to play the game afterward. I was actually drawn to writing so in that case even though my son and i we get along great and we have great father son relationship were way different as far as our passions. Go and that's okay. It's the thing is my. My writing skills are they. Were constantly improving through my life and the funny thing is even as i wrote the book wonder like am i the most qualified person to to write this book. Maybe maybe i am gifted at writing right. Maybe i am good at this. But am i the most qualified person and so why do i tell you this right. I tell you this. Because i want you to realize something that i'm still learning myself. The skills you have are probably around eighty percents better than you actually think. I want to say that again. The skills that you have are probably around eighty percent better than you actually think. Now what are get the eighty percent number. You know statistically they say what is seventy. Six percent of statistics are made up on the spot. I will say this. Evidence is more inaccessible and nature. But the things you are passionate about. You are geared toward learning more about it it just this natural thing. It's not something that you can really force. Can you learn things and learn more about Passions in your life. of course. you can't can you learn how to take care of the zales in your garden or in your new hangar. The year rose garden right. Is rose garden on. That makes sense but i looked at my window and saw zulia so i i mentioned it so it. Can you learn about that. Scher will you be passionate about it. Maybe you can develop a passion for it but passionate in your life is is this area of your life. That's built in. Its this natural part view. And so where do you go from here right. What are those examples that promised you a before we get into those examples. I want to share with you just a few questions that you can write down to ask yourself and you can kind of fill these out like to help you figure out where you go from here and figure out what it is you have to offer the world so the first question goes right along the lines of my story. I just told about not only about my son but about myself. I have always been good at blank. Fill in the blank there. What is it that you have always been good at something. That seems easy for you for me. It was english and grammar and for my son. Tech is easy for him. Technologies easy for him super easy a he is are basically our systems administrator at the house. he knows so much about For my daughter the things she is naturally good at and she finds easy music. She finds that incredibly easy from wife. She finds the medical field incredibly easy to pick up on. And it's not because it's not challenging to learn it's because we have a passion for those particular things in our lives. Here's a second question you can ask yourself. I don't know why. But i really just enjoy doing the following things and then list those things what things that you do really bring you joy for me. It's writing it's crafting something from nothing. It's looking at this blank page and putting words on it and impacting the world with a those words. And let's see what's the next one number three this. This is kind of long ones. All probably read it a couple of times. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until what so for this question. Think of a time your life in which our knowledge or skills or ability was needed. Think of a time when you were able to use it and you suddenly realized that brought you joy so i to read that one again and explain that a little more. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until this particular event in my life. I never thought about me being really good at writing until my mother when i was fourteen. Fifteen years old picked up that poland in my room and said hey this is really good. Where did you copy this from. I never thought about that. My son may not have ever thought about how good he is attack. Until i pointed it out and said dude that is amazing that you figure that out on your own you contact the experts in and you did everything needs to do on your own and so when you think we think of that like okay. I never thought about what i'm naturally good at. And what i enjoy until a particular event in your life and you think about when your knowledge or your skills or abilities were needed and and then you say okay. I was able to use it at that point in my life and then you suddenly realize man that made me feel really good. That brought me joy. That was dare. I say it fun and a lot of times. We as adults we. We tend to tend to think like well. You know i'm an adult. I don't need to have funding more. I shouldn't be having fun anymore. I'm more focused on business and and making money taking care of my family. Those are all great things but at the end of the day passion following that passion pursuing that passion your life a lot of times what it feels like is fun just a lot of fun number four thing. You can ask yourself. I was able to make a difference in a person's life by using one or more of my unique abilities which not only made a difference but it brought me joy as well and the question is list those skills or abilities that you use to impact someone's life or to make a difference in the world for me. They'll be writing for my son that might be tech my daughter that might be music for my wife that might be the medical field. So there's so many things that again virtually unlimited number of things where you can find passion in your life and it's those things that you are naturally geared toward they. Here's a few examples. I'm going to review these for you just to give you a sense of where you can find passion in your life and don't get caught up on the stories themselves. I want you to imagine yourself. What is it that you personally find your passionate about. Here's example number one. I was a cormon in the navy. And i learned a lot about helping others in times of medical crisis. I found so much joy. In this. I knew my job well and i knew i was making a difference. Pretty simple right pretty direct and so this person says hey. I knew what i was doing was making a difference. And i found joy in it. Here's another really good one along the video games. A video games idea. I love playing video games call of duty fortnight minecraft you name it. I get a sense of joy out of playing them and truth be told. I'm pretty good at it. My unique personality which i found in line for which i now understand. It equips me well as a teacher and so a combined those elements to start a video game players club in my community. We get together. We eat snacks. Play video games. Hold tournaments and get to know each other better. It's such a great time. And i love it. So being a woman in the navy versus playing video games way different right but still these people can find passion in these things see. Here's a here's another one very a very hands on example. I've never really enjoyed school or sitting in the classroom. But one thing i do enjoy working with my hands getting my hands dirty now that i know my unique personality type again that he learned in line for i understand more about wild like this type of work and why i tend to dislike sitting in the classroom. I love solving problems. I distinctly remember one time when my elderly neighbors toilet was leaking. She asked me. If i knew someone who could help and gladly volunteered myself. I checked out the situation figured out what. The problem was unseated. The toilet installed a new wax ring and reseeded the toilet. She was so grateful. And i had fixed a problem for her. I felt really good about myself. That's huge The the the What do you call it. The joy the inner joy that comes from making a positive difference in someone else's life is absolutely huge. Now here's here's the last example share with you because we're running up on time but this one. I really liked this one. Because i have a dog. I love my dog and a lot of you probably have pets as well but this one says. I am a pet whisper. Yes it may sound silly to some. But i have an incredible heart for dogs cats birds and just about any other animal who is suffering or quote unquote down on their luck. In fact i have adopted two dogs and two cats. I've them better lives. This has been so rewarding to me and it is a passion. I continue to pursue. See the thing is there is not one specific passion that we are all going to find fulfilling the passion in your life is going to be your own. Here's the last thing. I want to share with you how we are built as humans. We're designed to live our best life in the context of relationships with other people. I to say that again as humans. We're are designed to live our best lives in the context of relationships with other people. You know chances are we're not all going to be billionaires or a world famous politicians. Are you know billboard topping musicians but we can all make a difference when we find that passion in our lives. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Hope it's been helpful for you and that you've learned at least a little bit about identifying that passion in your life again you can pick up a copy of the resolve book at courage to fight again dot com or on amazon and i will share those links in the show notes as i typically do. Leave us a review. I tunes at definitely helps so much. Of course follow social media kurds. Finding in dot com is our website. Thank you so much for listening. We will see you next time.

"Into start things off today. I wanna play a little game. I want you to mentally or even allowed as long as other people are not looking at you. Strangely to answer the following questions as quickly and as intuitively as possible first question is name a brand of computer the second question name a make or model of a car and the third question name the color of a piece of clothing. If you're like most people those three things that you named you have come into contact with very recently. Maybe you're looking at somebody with that piece of clothing on that's blue or maybe you own like i do an apple computer or maybe you just saw a commercial about one. Maybe it's possible that The car make and model that you listed was something that you own yourself or maybe you just read an article about tesla today for whatever reason. It's likely that you came into contact with those three things. Of course that doesn't mean that it's impossible for you to have recalled something that you haven't come into contact with but when your brain is given this task it fills in blanks with things that it believes. A relevant and relevance is a very topic when it comes to our brains and that's what we're talking about in stays episode. My name's jonathan cottrell. You're listening to developer.

"Reveal party sparked a wildfire that has grown to nearly ten thousand acres in California as of this. A woman died over the weekend while hiking amid a record-setting heat wave in the state, and at least one, hundred, forty, seven, covid nineteen cases have been linked to a wedding reception in Maine in the midst of all the bad news one, Christian celebrity wants to focus on the good news candace Cameron. Beret was asked recently if she would ever reprise her role on the talk, show the view. The actress channeled and said, no, I'm done with that Chapter I'm very grateful for that time in my life but I don't want to talk about politics. She explained not because I don't believe that my viewpoints and opinions are important but I would much rather share Jesus with people. That's my real passion notice that she doesn't want to talk about religion or even Christianity but about Jesus that's because. Jesus is a real living person not just an idea or a worldview. He is changed her life and she wants everyone to know that he can change their lives as well over the Labor Day weekend my wife and I watched a rush of hope Greg Laurie's marvelous and moving cinematic invitation to meet Jesus after blending spiritual films and music about our Lord. The program then focuses and the pastor. As he explains who Jesus is and what he wants to do in our lives. Laurie did what candace Cameron Beret wants to do share Jesus with people in a broken world filled with disaster disease and despair. He is our only hope even more than we need a covid nineteen vaccine and solutions to the divisiveness of our day we need to know him not just about him we need Jesus. Here's our problem. Secularization has convinced secular people that Jesus is merely an idea or historical figure. They can ignore if they wish even Christians can fall for this deception turning a personal relationship with their personal lord into a religion about him they could observe on their terms. Such decisions become tragically self-fulfilling in sociology the Thomas, the Eram states if men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences. For example, thousands of people over the Labor, day holiday refused to take precautions against the coronavirus pandemic, their false belief that masks and social distancing. Her unnecessary will lead to very real consequences for them and for the rest of us as well. Similarly, if like majority majority of American adults, you believe that Jesus is only a man. You'll refuse the salvation only the son of God can offer as a consequence. You will spend eternity separated from God and you will miss all that his divinity can do in your life today, and if you believe that Christianity is about attending church and being religious, you will miss all that the living Lord Jesus wants to do in in through your life? Today Yesterday we focused on the fact that God wants to use our temporal work for eternal purposes noting with Oswald Chambers that a river touches. Of which it source knows nothing today. Let's focus on the work before the work chambers encourages us to never allow anything to come between yourself and Jesus Christ no emotion or experience nothing must keep you from the one great sovereign source. When you are connected to the living Lord Jesus, you will find that God has nourished you in mighty torrents of blessing for others. This is because when We encounter Jesus Second Corinthians three eighteen tells us we all with unveiled face beholding the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another commenting on this astounding statement Greg Denison notes. When we spend time alone with God the Holy Spirit longs to lead us into direct tangible and transformative encounters with the glory of God Christian. Spirituality is all about. Direct connection with our heavenly father and not about engaging in religious practices just because we feel we should you might be thinking, but you don't know my failures in my mistakes. You don't know all the ways. I am unworthy to experience the Holy God you right. You are not worthy to experience God personally neither am I. This is one reason so many Christians settled for religion about God. Rather than an intimate relationship with him, it's why we read the Bible pray and attend worship services. But when we're done, we are the same as we were before we began. Here's the amazing good news. You do not have to be worthy to experience God for he is made you worthy as Craig, explains, the death of Christ has made unveiled encounters with God completely available to you whenever wherever All across the gospels whenever and wherever people chose to trust in Jesus and stepped into a personal relationship with him. He changed their lives and he is still the same today as he was. Then as a result, let's close with two questions. I was the last time Jesus Changed Your Life. When we read the Bible with the prayer that Jesus would speak to us he will when we pray with the desire to speak to him and hear from him, he meets with us when we worship for the purpose of connecting with the Living Lord we do when we serve in submission to his calling and power, we experience him as we partner with him. So I'll ask a second question. When next will Jesus Change? Your. Life. If you like what you heard. Please leave a rating and review for the PODCAST.

"Not like things think of the the greatest ideas in the last ten years Lubar if you ask ten people on the street about Uber. Ride hailing service. They'd say why do I need that. Feels unsaved and why do I will stranger drive me around AIRBNB. Would I let somebody into my home to rent a room. That's crazy crazy so you want people to not like it if everyone likes the idea. It means they've already been conditioned so you're trying to do a better job of what somebody else has. And that is not a recipe for success in technology you. You talked earlier about Scott Cook and being the best product guy. You knew. I've also heard you use use. The term savored surprises. I think that's a really good good. Good framing principle. So can you talk about that a little bit sure. That's something that I learned from Scott one of the thus parts of teaching how much you get to learn and we are really fortunate being here in Silicon Valley that we can write cases is about companies and then have the protagonist of the case. Actually come to the Claus to discuss what happened and not give you the Revised History Patel you what actually and so. I'm incredibly fortunate to have taught a couple of classes. Where Scott was the guest? He was the prime minister. Jason Guest and one of the amazing easing lessons that I learned from him was a concept. That is a core part of the intuit culture now which is to savor lever surprises and by that they mean that whenever you create a new product and bring it to market either as a minimum viable product to group of five users or or two thousand users. There's always going to be a surprise something when you didn't expect people to react to positively or negatively and Scott found that all of the value wise in the surprise. Nice and it's and it's interesting. I've heard him say that in in another forum which was so we weren't paneled together. Wants South by South West and he brought this up and he said that when he's in a meeting and somebody's proposing a big project or a launch or a new initiative. He would ask well as you did this analysis and work. What surprised you? And what what he learned was that if if the people couldn't answer that question they were really just trying to get their agenda across they were just really trying to get money for their pet project. But but how how could you possibly have a market discovery or customer customer discovery exercise. Were nothing surprised you right like how could that. How could that ever make soon right in consensus quadrant? If you have which is death or your or you just weren't you're listening to the market. It's so where where we internalized. It was now when we talk to people. We say every iteration so every company in zero two one prepacked market fit mode. We like to say as an iteration tempo at so consumer product every day. An air price. Software Company can't deliver half a loaf in general motors so their temple maybe slower But we like to say you must have savored surprises at the end of every iteration. We're on some level. You wasted the iteration you didn't you didn't gather any new secrets In the engagement with the customer our president at Wealth Front as is a great saying that the definition of a good experiment is one from which you learned not one that succeeded right right so if there are no USA prizes then you didn't learn anything right. It wasn't a good experiment. And and what was the biggest mistake. You've made it wealth front where you look back on it. And you're just like I should have no I. I I know that was unforced. Air So number one was. I ignored a lesson that I teach my students over and over and over again. which is don't project your own tastes onto other people? This is an enormous mistake my MBA's Mitch. They say well I wouldn't I use that product therefore it's not a good company. Well you might not be the target audience. So that's irrelevant. and is a venture capitalist. You know that's one of the first things you have to unlearn. So I did that. In terms of thinking about the attractiveness of what we initially offered and then the other thing was the original implementation tation of the idea was a marketplace where you could choose investment managers who we would apply the ivy methodology to determine who is likely to outperform on the market and we did a really good job of picking the managers and nobody cared and part of the problem was we applied. Steve Steve Blank's customer development methodology to one side of the two sided marketplace. But not to both thoughts because at benchmark we had back at the number of very successful marketplaces or network effects business. A I had effectively co-founded Equinox which which is now a multibillion dollar so I've seen that firsthand we had open table we had operating systems companies. Red Hot we had a bay and bay. We had a ton of them. And so what I learned from this experience was that it's hard to catalyze a marketplace. So you tend to focus on the sell side before the buy side. I even recruited Jeff Jordan. WHO's now partner in recent Horowitz who had run ebay North America and and pay pal? Oh and after he retired from Ebay actually ran open table and other network effects business marketplace and. He agreed that this was the right thing to do. So we spent spent all of our efforts applying customer development to the sell side and never to the buy side assuming that if we had the liquidity that the buy side would just come. That was the dumbest thing I ever could have. When did you have sort of the epiphany that uh-huh I'm I I need to remember some my thinking on this well. We were failing that your attention we had about San eleven months a cash left in the bank we were. We were growing but we weren't growing at the rate that would get us another venture financing. I knew that we had to do something different. Interestingly the night that I made the decision I was reading a chapter of a Clay Christiansen Book that I was going to talk about in my product market fit class and it just hit me like a sledgehammer. That what we were doing wasn't disruptive in the Christianson definition. Listen it was better but that doesn't matter and it was one of those. Oh my God moments this makes no sense and I've been trying to get my VP of marketing. To Talk to people who started assign a process but didn't follow through to see why didn't and one of the challenges with millennials and. Forgive me for for saying this. I'm sixty years old. Is that people in my generation. Like to talk to people millennials. Don't this is the key to the success of wealth by the way is our clients. Pay Us not to talk to them. We deliver a full suite of next generation banking services and investment services. Mrs Without having to talk to us about anything everything's automated. The downside of it is the only WanNa look at behavioral data or or email feedback to make decisions and I knew we had to get out. Steve says you have to get out of the F. ING building to talk to customers so after six months of trying to get my VP of marketing. Do it. I was a first time. CEO and. I didn't want to step in and tell her what to do. Because that's not very empowering and finally only I said the hell with it I'm GonNa Start Calling these people myself and the feedback. They gave me was unbelievably consistent. which was we used to just address the Public Equity Portion of your portfolio. which is about a third should be about a third of your money and people said rather that you manage all of my money adequate quit Rian inexpensively than a portion of its superbly? And how did you nail your niche early on. Actually it was a great. It was a crossing the chasm suggestion Chin from one of my angel investors again. We had started as this investment management service so we had evolved it was it was a pivot because ninety percent of the software. Where was the same? Instead of having a marketplace of investment managers it was just us that manages your portfolio out a board meeting before we launched the new service and I said to my board members people who are exposed to this love it but my biggest concern is that we have a chicken and egg problem. And that is people don't know how to evaluate a financial advisor so they use assets under management as the proxy for Quality. It's actually terrible proxy for Quality. It's a great proxy for how good someone is at selling others. Yeah not how good they are at investing and so. I'm not quite sure what we're GONNA do here. And Doug McKenzie who's a retired partner of Kleiner enter Perkins who believed in crossing the chasm. Because he's my age said Andy. Why don't you focus on young people in tech because because they'll care a lot more about the quality of the user experience than they will the assets under management and you and your team have enough credibility in this community that they'll take the early adopters will take the shot at the proof of concept that was the critical insight in the history of our company? Said whatever wait what do you do. Just call up people at facebook and say try this. Facebook was about six or twelve months away from IPO or number of employees had sold secondary stock talk. We thought well who are the best connected people in Silicon Valley. It's the people who work at the social networks so we did three or four seminars at facebook and linked in where we educated people on investment best practices practices not wealth front because we wanted to get the engineer as the earliest adopter because we thought they would provide the references to the less well educated people on investing and what we know about engineers is. They hate.

Radcliffe the person credited with coining the term product market fit and since getting product market fit is vital to a raw startup. We thought we'd get straight to it and talk to him. This is Mike. MAPLES junior floodgate. And it's go time with Andy Radcliffe. Welcome to starting greatness. podcast dedicated to ambitious founders. Who WanNa go from nothing to awesome super for fast when you're a startup? Founder you have to channel your inner James Bond Your macgyver. Your wonder woman. I'M GONNA help you win by creating the lessons of the super super performers but before they were successful so without further. Ado We sequence. So let's get started in one thousand nine hundred five Radcliffe Co founded the firm benchmark capital to be one of the best VC firms in Silicon Valley with some of the best start up investments of all time. He's also co founder and CEO Wealth Front so as ideas about doc product market fit and startup. Success are just academic and speaking of academics and he also teaches the renowned class at Stanford Business School aligning startups with their markets. Yeah he literally is. The professor of product market fit. Let's catch up with them. Andy Radcliffe thanks for joining our podcast. Thank you for having me handy. One of the reasons that I was excited to talk to you was to talk about the idea. Product market fit which is probably one of the most famous descriptors descriptors of. What is your at a one star up trying to get to? Where did that term come from in the first place? And what's the origin story. I can tell you the origin story the concept I I learned from sequoia capital. Don Valentine really invented okay dom used to say I. I'm looking to invest in companies unease. That can screw everything up and still succeed because the customer pulls the product out of their hands. I'm on paraphrasing. I'm not sure I got exactly right. He felt that way because the startup will screw everything up. So I want if I want a company that that is such demand from the market that they can literally screw everything instill succeed actually define it in terms. Used by Steve Steve Blank. And Eric Reese they were the first to apply the scientific method to business. And I think that Steve's great contribution to the entrepreneurship business was the idea that I you have to prove value hypothesis and only once you've proven the value I policy. Should you test test a growth hypothesis to me. Product market fit is when you have proven the value hypothesis so the value I- prothesis is the what the WHO in the how. Now what are you gonNA build for. Whom is it relevant? How's the business model? I get this question a lot. How do I know when I have? I have four here is that I used to for consumer in two for enterprise. Okay so the two best consumer ones that I know are Exponential -sential organic growth. People can game growth and they do it all the time and I'm always amazed that people fall for and that they killed themselves into thinking their product market fit because they bought it. The only way to know is if you have product market fit is if you get word of mouth. I learned Mr Scott Cook whose the best product that government and so Scott was riveted on word of mouth while the best test of word of mouth is these exponential organic growth. Because the only way you can get exponential organic growth is through word of mouth. The other heuristic that I suggest is his net promoter score which is a proxy for word of mouth. It's not quite as good. And there are outliers where it just doesn't work so Chenoweth Paulie Appalachia who started the growth group at facebook. Once told me that. At the height of facebook's growth their net promoter score was negative for teen so it's not always an ideal indicator on the enterprise side. The the two that I suggest are one that I learned from mm-hmm one of my teaching partners at Stanford Mark Leslie who created something called the sales learning curve and now one of the metrics rex. The mark used in to determine where in a company's life sales life it was was by measuring the sales also yield the sales yield is the contribution margin of a sales team divided by the total cost to field the old the sales team. So if you have a direct sales wrapping SC inside. Sales Rep and management overhead. A sales team might cost on the order of five for six hundred thousand dollars. Not until what. Mark and Chuck Holloway his Co author of the paper that they published on Harvard in Harvard. Business Review found was that when a company gets to a sales yield greater than one. That's how you know you've hit product market fit. That's to me. The the best test of enterprise product market fit the other one I learned from Gug Leoni of sequoia all my best ideas have come from other people. I just put in his moderate rated chandelier wisdom exactly and Doug who has one of the best noses for product.
