Family fighting sends U-Haul on a detour
"<music> Claudine obeyed mcelwain is a self-described very bad driver. Her friends actually categorized her driving skills as the worst so I don't know why I thought it was okay for me to drive a U-haul from from Washington D._C.. To Boston by the last leg of the ten hour drive wedding was in doing so great she kept missing turns and it didn't help that her boyfriend Colin with whom she was making the move was being a total taxi driver and he's like you're supposed I told him and just were definitely at this point both at our you're breaking up spraying. I'm like you don't live with me here. You're GonNa go move somewhere else. <music> cloudy and eventually navigated the U.. Haul onto storrow drive a two mile long parkway with what locals would probably call wicked low clearance and I look up and I'm like there's a tunnel and this wasn't great eight news because the tunnels that it was the same height as a truck now. There's an entire sub-genre of youtube fail videos dedicated to rental trucks not fitting under tunnels spoiler alert. They don't end well. I mean we're the hell. Are you supposed to go right right so right there. In the middle of the very harrowing store Oh Dr Surrounded by drivers that some people like whole mass holes Claudine made an executive decision. I decide the smartest thing for me to do regardless of like where the lines are in the roads to go down the very center of this tunnel because that will be the highest point and my boyfriend's like what you're going to be straddling two and I'm a shut up. That's what we're doing. Sh- Claudine decided to take it slow like really slow. I'm like so freaked out that I'm not GONNA fit that. I'm driving like five miles. An Hour. People are like honking and screaming and like leaning the windows and Collins like just driving. I'm like shut Claudine hunched and fear around the steering wheel while Colin White knuckled the door somehow we it does like it just fits and and then we get over on the other side now if you can get through a u-haul move together you can probably get through anything. Claudine and Collins stuck it out and got married and vowed never to move themselves ever again. Claudine gene is far from alone in her U-HAUL related family. Drama plenty of spouses and siblings and parents and children have buckled under the stress of a D._I._y.. Move Another family that suffered U hauls founding family the Schoen's U. Haul is one of America's largest family run businesses. It was founded by Leonard Samuel shown in nineteen forty five he went by L._S.. As enterprise the multibillion dollar company is in unequivocal success. You can't get on a highway way in America today and not see a u-haul truck or trailer but while the business succeeded the family did not there were attempted therapy sessions fistfights in the boardroom and even accusations of murder and the outcome was a family family fractured in two thousand tiny pieces. I'm Lauren over an from American public media and the Carlson School Management University of Minnesota. This is spectacular failures the show where we let failure into our lane on the highway even though it's terrible emerging growing up in Oregon during the Great Depression L._S. shown learned to hustle family didn't have much so as a kid. L._S. worked on farms and helped his family with a variety of small businesses. Show those were formative experiences. The caused my father to be pretty determined hardworking working guy that's Mike shown the second of thirteen kids and the only one of the shown siblings who responded to our queries. L._S. worked his way through college by running a chain of barber and beauty shops eventually he enlisted in the Navy but while in the Navy L._S. contracted rheumatic fever which wasn't so bad because it gave him a lot of time to scheme at the time when he was laying in bed recovering from Ramadi fever in in the navy why he was trying to figure out how to transport his wife and his blog gains from southern California back to his what would be as home somewhere near Portland Oregon. L._S. was hardly alone and trying to figure out how to pack up his life on the base and move back home. It was really a time of expansion within the United States after the war you had a lot of military coming home and the jobs weren't necessarily where they had grown up and of course the generation in the military had been used to moving. That's Amy Helmand she's the dean of Arizona State University's business school and also a member of the Independent Governance Committee of Americo U Hauls Parent Company after I had no options to move there things they either needed to rent a trailer and return it to the same place for they rented it so California to Oregon in back or they needed to hire professional movers or they needed to to fit in their car. LS and his wife Mary ended up choosing option three. They packed up their car and transported all their belongings from California to Oregon but necessity being the mother of invention and all the pair new. There had to be a better underway so here's what L._S.. Anna Mary came up with you rent a trailer from their new company U-HAUL drive to your destination and leave it at one of u hauls partner service stations that had agreed to provide storage of the trailers for cut of the Prophet Pretty Simple right but what if your destination didn't have a partner location I they said okay if you're going to run a trailer and you're gonNA drop it off in a city that we don't have any representatives. Try to find someone that looks reputable and leave the trailer with them and hand them this package that says congratulations. You're a new U-HAUL dealer. illman says one of the most remarkable parts of early U-HAUL was that it was built on trust trust that the service station partners would be on the up and up trust that customers wouldn't steal the trailers or get them stuck in a tunnel somewhere or light them on fire trust that you can make this totally bonkers idea work eventually LSS faith would be eroded but in the beginning trusting Lakewood workout just fine line all rental businesses are built on trust to some degree but you can't rent people things if you don't have anything to Rent L._S.. The Capital D. by a bunch of trailers so he Barda book from the library about welding and cobbled together some early u-haul prototypes types shout out to libraries the D._I._y.. Spirit of those early trailers was the first pillar of U-haul the second was family. A lot of the employees were relatives and the all came from this <hes> uh you know honest sort of a hard working environment and they were happy to be a part of something where they could see advancement and they they could see progress rather than just working for a wage. That's it's not gonNA ever change from U hauls earliest days. It was a family business. Mike shown remember is being put to work at the early age nine and I worked in a little fabrication place for remade trailers and I- I swept I do little jobs and I got a Coca Cola lunchtime. I remember that eventually Mike and his brother Sam graduated to a proper wage a dollar a day to do some entry level punch-card computing. Don't spend it all in one place these guys as you grew. L._S. was on the road all the time. He started out doing this thing pretty much on his own by the Sivas pants he would show up in these backwaters with a toothbrush and a smile and a change of underwear and talk people into deals. That's Alan Prendergast. He's a writer who profiled L._S. for the L._A.. Times magazine and he wants bragged about eating at McDonald's like for three weeks in a row while he was on the road doing this and that's where he liked to have early board meetings or whatever but up about that Bob. I'm loving this meeting. Agenda does say that L._S. was a workaholic would be laughable understatement. You Hall was like another child for him. Sometimes it was. His favorite child to the detriment of his actual real life children in talking to L._S.. There were times when you wouldn't know he's talking about his family or the business <hes> to him. They were all part of the same thing in a way and <hes> I think in some ways he was sort of oblivious to the family growing up around him because he was so tied up with his work but in nineteen fifty seven L._S. snapped out of his oblivion at least momentarily Anna Mary who was an equal partner during the business and had already given birth to six children died of a heart condition at the age of thirty four all of a sudden l._S. was a widower was six kids under the age of thirteen and a growing company that needed his constant attention his son might he had formerly relied upon his first wife to make sure the the home family and all the kids were set up straight and everything was working good but that didn't really work after she she died Anna. Mary was the love of LSS life the woman he collaborated with and sought council from and her death forever change the family but not just for reasons. You might think Anna. Mary didn't have a will and because she anelle s were equal. Partners partners in u-haul her children automatically inherited her stock in the company. This was on top of the voting shares that L._S. had already gifted them when they were born and if you do the math that means an instant lss motherless children together other owned a greater share in the company than their father and this says Professor Amy Hillman is very unusual most family businesses to promise is you will own this when I am no longer here but what the ownership doesn't directly transfer to the kids so early in life and I think you know had they had an estate plan for for lack of a better word where the families shares would have all been held in a certain trust. That's what you see a lot of companies now even that are publicly controlled by family members that they all have to agree in some way and that just didn't happen because of Anna Mary dying so young and without a will and as we told you an episode for you gotTa make a will like right now but I mean like after he finished listening while LSS kids had a lot of u-haul shares on paper their father was still in charge of the business but home was a different story. L._S. realized he couldn't handle six kids on his own and run a rapidly expanding u-haul so he remarried move the family from Washington state to Palm Springs. Mike shown remembers that almost from the start of his father's second marriage life at home was rocky lss new wife. Suzanne was almost twenty years her husband's junior and had to raise six kids who were not hers. Mike says the couple thought all the time you know his relationship with his second wife was very read tumultuous and I did not want to be part of that or near it that turbulence second marriage plus the fact that his work often came before his kids gave L._S.. A Monster Parental guilt complex something he wrote about in letters to his kids later in life as a result reporter. Allen Prendergast says he gave his kids a lot of leeway and as the children got older I think he started to reproach himself as he realized that he was not setting the limits that he probably should have both for the family family in terms of doing things outside of U-haul and also just in terms of finding time for himself to break away from u-haul still LSS corporate baby kept growing by Nineteen fifty-nine u-haul had more than forty two thousand trailers on the road in the U._S.. In Canada and they just introduced rental trucks into their fleet and they still made almost everything themselves from box trucks trailers to the hitches they were connected to in just over a decade. The company became a leader in self moving and they did it without any traditional advertising. You know they don't advertise they advertise on the side of their trucks so that in itself was genius that you'd be driving down the highway and see you know in the olden days trailer that said two dollars a day and say okay okay during this growth period lss second wife cranked out five kids in eight years with that many kids. Mike says things kept getting tougher on the homefront he and his brother Sam got shipped to boarding school while the rest of the kids stayed at home home. It's never easy to handle family drama not for anyone but the shown family drama was particularly dramatic the kids whether the death of apparent move to a new city a new step mom and a packet of new siblings though I imagine it could have been a hell of a lot easier if they weren't working together side by side in the family business reporter. Allen Prendergast says L._S. never considered that he just really wanted to bring everyone together under the U.. Haul banner I think that he demonstrated over and over over that he had this notion that again. It's the big happy family notion that everybody is going to be involved in the company and everybody's GonNa see each other all day long and then they're gonNa go home and have fun and they're gonNA party together. I don't know well. It was was pretty clear he. He couldn't put the family back together again with his in his marital situation so he was trying to do it with the business. If nothing else L._S. wanted to put his family on firm financial footing the kind he never had growing up. There's no question he was going to make things better for his kids which also means easier which isn't always better because when you end up giving voting shares of the company to eleven of your children and so you have an established any boundaries around Oh shares and when you don't have a clear succession plan. You're asking for trouble all those kids they don't get along but every last one of them has a big money stake in the company. Um We're going to take a quick break when we come back.

Thanks welcome back through spectacular failures. I'm Lauren Ober back in the late fifteen hundreds this guy named William. William Shakespeare wrote a few plays Hamlet Macbeth teaming of the shrew to name a few much ado about nothing is probably my favorite mostly because the title is basically my life every day anyway. One of the bars masterworks is King Lear the King Lear your saga is one of the most terrifying stories about family dynamics ever written. It's about a king who is approaching the age where he's no longer fit to be king so he decides to give away his kingdom to his daughters. That's Dr Michael Whitmore. He's the director of the Folder Shakespeare Library in Washington D._C.. And I figured he might be able to shed a little light on family business succession which is basically what King Lear is all about no that we have divided Vijay didn't three kingdom and fast intent to shake all cares and business from our age converting them on younger strengths while we on gooden kroll all told not quite sexy Leo but it is a very frothy Sir John Gielgud playing lear in a BBC radio production of the play leers about to unload his kingdom but the way he tries to go about doing this. Oh Man Dan bad idea dude and so this scene which is called the division of the Kingdom is one where King Lear listens to his daughters say I love you. I love you. I love you and then based on what they say. He gives them a piece of land. Now I could've told the King trashy way to divide up your wealth and power. There's just no way this can end well and it doesn't from act one scene one. The family starts to crumble and the reason why is because the king is trying to give away his power and power is almost impossible to give away this idea that power is almost impossible to give away especially to your children is central to both the story of King Lear and into the story of the U.. Haul Dynasty L._S. shown the company's founder never required a loyalty tests from his kids know I love you. I love you. I love you but he always had in his mind that he would build up the company so that one day he could give it to them. Lor Union Executive Director of the Institute for Family Entrepreneurship at Babson College says that wanting to leave things to your kids is really cool in generous but it can be tricky when you have a large number of family members who are owners the company then it becomes much more complex so it helps if you ask yourself some fundamental questions before you start raking in the big cash and slicing up pieces of the Biz which family members can be involved in the business or how family members was qualified to be involved in the business. <hes> what are the rules of families as shareholders. What are the rights of family members who are not actively involved in managing the business versus the rights of family members who are involved in running the business? If you don't have those things in place then you are inviting disaster like with the trailers L._S. Anna. Mary just trusted that everything would work out. We don't know of the couple asked these sorts of fundamental questions when they created the company but if they did they he didn't implement any sort of plan and it showed by the early nineteen seventies lss four oldest sons had worked for U.. Haul in some type of professional capacity Mike by then a lawyer had overhauled the company's legal department his brother Sam <unk> a trained physician was LSS right hand man in this was exactly what else wanted a successful business where his kids worked together but says union there can be some pitfalls to that the members of the family have to have an agreement that they have a common goal that is more important than their individual egos and if that is not the case then you are really at risk of tearing the family apart art combined family drama with the everyday stress of running a business and things can get dicey real quick especially when there are unforeseen bumps in the road for much of its history u-haul relied on service stations to house their fleet of trailers and trucks talks about fourteen thousand locations at its peak but in nineteen seventy-three there was a gas crisis there were embargoes and shortages gas prices were insane and lines at the pump were epic. There was a whole thing in the wake of the crisis. Almost almost half of the service stations you partnered with went out of business professor. Amy Hillman says that this was really bad news for the company when the gasoline crisis hit and they lost a lot of dealers that's when l._s. really got desperate and started to worry that this business was going to ultimately fail and I think made a classic mistake of thinking. We know how to rent just about anything so that's when they started renting. I mean you name it. They were renting it like mailboxes cement mixers and crutches. They also rented videos under the new business name Hollywood. Get it H.. A. U. L. Lee would Hollywood amazing at the time newhall also tried to get into the van line moving business but there was already a lot of competition. This diversification was disastrous for two reasons one. They lost a ton of money chasing all these things that were not part of their core business and to because it amped up all that sibling animus brothers against brothers those that agreed with the way he was taking the business and those that saw that their fleet was getting old and in need of repair and very worried that the diversification diversification was going to take the business down this feud about the direction of the company plus the fact that L._S. had been gifting shares to his many kids over the years and basically trying to give away his power King Lear style created a leadership dilemma. Sam shown was the heir apparent his father's u-haul thrown L._S. groomed him for the top spot for years but Salmon Mike found themselves in the opposite side of their brothers Joan mark who oppose the direction the father was taking the company it became I'm a bidder stalemate. Remember the shown siblings had been given shares of the company when they were born and the oldest six kids had inherited their mother shares when she died so on paper the shown siblings especially the oldest ones had a huge huge amount of wealth built up in the company it was their birth rate and they all had thoughts on how best to protect it professor. Laurie Union says L._S. should have seen this coming in the case where you have twelve siblings and there's not a clear understanding understanding of how should we act together. Shareholders that that right away is setting yourself up for a potentially disastrous situation. There are so many many stories about the siblings strife at U.. Haul during the seventies and eighties allegations of harassment and violence and just general bad behavior from few of LSS sons the shown kids there ended up being thirteen and all we were only able to talk to Mike and he was pretty tight lipped about that whole time I'm curious about when you know four for the siblings and for the family aspect of business that it kind of started going south. That's a real good question. I'm probably not can answer it and I can tell you why I we had a pretty hard fought battle over the control that corporation lasted many two years and took its toll and as a part of that I was sued for liable on a case it was the second largest case I ever handled and tried we went to trial and that took a piece out of my hide and I don't really WanNa do that again. My older brother Sam was similarly sued for libel several years later and I assisted him on the defense that case both of those cases we won but it's not something I'm looking forward to do <hes> at this point in my life I mean who does WanNa get sued definitely not me reporter Allen Prendergast cover the family and and remembers that they had some real challenges. I mean the one family member would lose control an assault another. There was a lot of incredible claims flying back and forth among the family about various kinds of skulduggery. Rian litigation that went on and on and didn't you know in many cases the was unfounded but you know it was like seemed like it was there to try to drain the other sides assets or something like that I mean this was this was going on for quite some time. There was a great deal of of just toxic stuff going on between different family members here L._S. shown kept desperately trying to put his family back together. He called in therapists and he tried to make the warring brothers go to counseling sessions but as anyone one in therapy we'll tell you in ain't GonNa work if you don't go and not all the brothers participate. All of this bad blood came to a head when the final battle for control of the company began in nineteen eighty six at the time L._S. own just two percent of u-haul doc eleven of his thirteen children each owned more of his company than he did even though he was still the C._e._o.. And or chair by this point all of LSS shareholding kids were old enough to vote their shares and some of them wanted their father gone so those siblings voted out board members loyal to LS and voted in folks who sided with them. It was like some hostile takeover by LSS own children after four decades. L._S. was out and his third oldest son Joe became came C._e._o.. And you can only imagine the family drama of taking a stand against your father or holding up your father's view and how that must have divided the family and then things got not even worse multiple news outlets at the time reported that at a board meeting in one thousand nine hundred nine a fistfight broke out between Sam and Mike shown on one side and their brothers mark in Joe U Hauls New C._E._O.. On the other Mike didn't WanNA WANNA talk about this but the instant landed him in the hospital with injuries to his neck and back after the brawl a visibly rattled l._S. was quoted as saying I created a monster then in one thousand nine hundred ninety. The family endured a tragedy Eva Burg shown the wife of LSS oldest son Sam was shot and killed in her telluride Colorado home. It was a mysterious crime because there was no obvious motive. The crime scenes pinpoint to any of the typical reasons stranger would break into a woman's home and kill her but the family situation had devolved so much that people immediately started speculating that it was a contract hit which it was not l._S. pointed the finger right his sons Joe and mark the ones who turned on him and in doing so turn the family even further inside out not only do we have this really strange murder case but we also had this family that was apparently <hes> you know a part of this long standing feud over this big business there were all this money that we all this bad blood and that certainly needed some investigation. After years of investigating the death police closed eva shown case after a convicted addicted rapists confessed killing her but the damage from LSS accusations about his sons involvement was hard to ignore it Kesse Paul not just on the shown family but on the company as well so living in Phoenix even today when you you mentioned the company U-haul people will often give you a funny look and there's something off about the company but they can't remember why professor says most people probably wouldn't have paid any attention to the inviting at U.. Haul were not not for the homicide that whole sorted situation really put a dent in the brand in two thousand three U Hauls Parent Company Americo filed for bankruptcy after a number of accounting snafus and in the past few decades the company has found itself South at the business end of a whole lot of personal injury lawsuits people who rented their trucks and trailers claim that they got hurt because they're rental was somehow defective but you all continues to zoom along as the nation's Premier Self Moving Company Company and in recent years the company has made moves into these self storage space a logical extension of their self moving brand obviously providing places to put stuff as opposed to renting giant trucks to any Dodo with a license. That's a much less risky venture for the company. Despite u-haul successes the shown family is still splintered albeit very wealthy LSS fourth born son. Mark left the company a couple years ago and is now Arizona's richest man is net worth about three point three billion with a B. As in boy. That's a lot of money. Mike Sean hasn't really had anything to do with U-HAUL since two thousand five. That's when the last family lawsuits settled Mike was in litigation allegation against his brother Gel in the company on and off for almost twenty years but he says he's moved on the sibling. Thing didn't work out very good I. I don't think that's any any secret and I learned a lot through it. All tell you but you know it's it's. It's in the past and I today. I worked to to be a person that if I can to bring more peace than discord in the world all like to do that L._S.. Shown really never got to see that play out in one thousand nine hundred nine at the age of eighty-three the U.. Haul founder drove his car into a utility pole and died. His death was ruled a suicide out of humble beginnings L._S.. Mary's company became one of the most successful family run businesses in the U._S.. Remember that first pillar the company's D._I._Y.. Spirit that says yeah you can rent this gigantic esque truck and you definitely can drive all your stuff across the country country to start a new chapter of your life no problem. That's still going strong but the second pillar the family part that one totally fell to pieces Laurie Union at Babson College says in any family business. It's critical to keep in mind. Just how important family is to the whole equation. The most important goal is the family relationships and the value the family has through those relationships and the wage maintained that is not necessarily to have all all the family members in the business but rather to have all the family members be appreciated in valued for what they bring to whatever work that they've chosen to do anyone with family knows that can be tough and entering and do business with family as a whole massive challenges. I mean I love my family but there is not enough ZANEX in the world to get me to go into business with them. I'm sorry mom and dad you hall fundamentally changed just the way Americans move but L._S..

For by the circumstances not necessary appropriate or justified its synonym of the word. Unwarranted gratuitous can also mean given unearned or without recompense or costing nothing free in legal contexts. Gratuitous means not involving a return benefit compensation or consideration. Here's the word used in a sentence from Forbes. By Mark Cohen the language of lawyers often disparagingly referred to as legalese is abstruse verbose rife with gratuitous Latin phrases and design to create a linguistic barrier between lawyers and non lawyers. Like the words gratitude grace and congratulate gratuitous is a descendant of the Latin word grotto's which means pleasing or grateful when gratuitous was first used in the seventeenth century. It meant free or given without return benefit or compensation the extended meaning done without good reason or unwarranted came about just a few decades later perhaps from the belief held by some people that one should not give something without getting something return today that extended meaning is the more common sense employed for example.

Welcome welcome welcome. Welcome back episode niki. Podcast happy new year my friends. It's been a long time. And i have missed all. I hope you miss me too so in this episode. I wanna talk about what i've been up to you because it's like a little life update and a perfect hard to january end to kick off this new year twenty twenty one so for welcoming twenty twenty one. I realized that there are certain montrose. What is the macho. First of all so that we can avoid jergens Is usual day. You choose to live by or something you remind yourself feeling down or low or just stick by the namara. Watts mancha could be like a quotation that you really love and just really gets to you you know. So that's what wants rise for me. I decided that my much used to be Love yourself okay. So throughout many twenty months was love yourself and what happened was that that's where experienced most. Scroll because no matter what happened. Even if i was experience downfall experiencing hardships and like no matter what it was. I remembered to love myself. When you start putting arsov. I you make sure that the energy is putting out in the world are clean assualt because many love yourself only dan. Can you love others so that was really did. Help me out a lot of twenty twenty but for twenty one. I wanted to try out something new so this year monta so far for the past twenty days has been hell bent on creating a heaven so i don't know i got it from. I have no clue where that comes from. And i'm gonna give credits to whoever came up with it or i don't know found came up. Basically this mantra is what this means in my head or to me personally. Is that no matter what happens. I will support thoughts in my head so many say hell bent on creating a heaven is the fact that everything that happens in this world every emotion everything experience happens between our own to us which is our mind the only thing we can observe and not control. I'm not gonna say the word control because it is wrong to try to control anything. In this life men become controlling. It becomes hard to overcome them. It becomes hard to let things go because you tried to control everything. So yes when may try to observe remind and we try to become silent observers of the thoughts and the actions that we take. There's one thing that constantly comes up bitches negative thoughts and more often more often heart. They don't know how to deal with those negative thoughts just because they're so overwhelming and they start spinning rounders like a web. So it's almost like starting more one negative thing out of nowhere. Something else will pop up right. If i'm feeling low about one thing out of nowhere a thousand more things were definitely pop up and this used to be happening a lot with me in that. First of all does not signify that someone is a pessimistic person. Or someone is negative or their indulge negative thoughts. Because that's oftentimes the storyteller ourselves when he think that i thank negatively or negatives than associate with as someone or associate my identity as someone who's pessimistic so i up for me was to identify that having negative thoughts is him in. It's very very human view. And for i too have. Negative thoughts are to experience negative emotions. So that was i tap into realizing that anything negative is human and meant to be experienced. We cannot always be having positive experiences. We cannot always be thinking about positive things because that would one day become toxic. So it's okay to have negative thoughts but then how do we get out of the deep dark. It pushes us down into. Let me start thinking about one bad thing and then so starting you want the other bad thing and it just goes on until our day is completely journey just because of this one tiny moment i'll give an example actually so the other day i was drinking coffee and probably by all these episodes i have given a lot of examples of coffee because i love coffee. That's i note. So i was drinking coffee and i jog. The cop like i told you about this story before. But here's a different angle to it. I spilled coffee and what happened. Was i started feeling bad that i just spent like six bucks here now. It's expensive. i just spent six on this law. Teigen i was super excited about it because today i finally decided to allow myself to have some sugar after all the working out i've been doing in this law was going to be kind of my prize. Any only really award yourself once in a time once in a wired right like at least from he. Awards are something that i look forward to and i want to enjoy them. So that law. I knew i associated of meaning to but it was a work for all the harvard. I've been putting so. I wanted to sit down on it and enjoy it slowly. And what happened. Was i pulled it after the national reaction for any human being i taught at that time would be to get cleaner throughout the cup and get another one right but that wasn't what i wanted to do. I wanted to spend some time being angry about it. Feel bad about the money is spent on the cup of coffee and then slowly. What happened was started feeling bad while howard spiltting however been called butterfinger swap my my whole family. Thanks as po. Everything in pick ripping seven called butter fingers and what started happening as started thinking about the butterfinger. I started thinking of all the other. Different things i've been called in my life and one after the other. I don't know how. I landed up in this series off. Negative thoughts one spilled cup of coffee turned into a nightmare of a day for me. Just because it brought in all the feelings rushing in that. I hadn't thought about and had been ignoring so not even that in fact i started digging for more negatively. Even if i was having a perfectly planted a beautiful day. I started digging up things that did not even think about labels. That didn't even matter to me. I feel bad like ivory causes. Okay like this is just a small example but if someone calling Are you blind using some kind of rude language that i don't mind because i know it's a joke. Put in that moment cup of coffee. Spill finished our team of butter fingers. That label are that cool. Came back to me as while people always mean to me. People are that this that this at in everything so we started to turn to negative so this experience it made me wake up to realize that one small second are a fraction of an action can completely transform my day in slowly. Those days can turn a lifetime off misery because if one small moment has effect to send my whole day down the drain that means that him allowing moments to have power over my mind and negative thoughts. Keep on coming up and coming up in coming up. So i thought there has to be real like. I'm not a pessimist. I knew for a fact that i do not define myself as a pessimist. There has to be a way out of this misery and the coffin moment is a very small example. Because i'm pretty sure you prince tons of moments during your day or more throughout the week that have the same power over you very. You will one small thing even if it's like as small as losing your cell phone for ten minutes or being spoken to rudely or missing a call from a friend that you were expecting any moment that i can't even think right now because it's so insignificant if he talk about verbally but any head it has the power to destroy the progress. You've made anti completely take over your brain those experiences. We have them from time to time and pretty much energy lights so mine. My my point here is in tiny twenty one. I wanted to make a consistent constant end conscious effort to make it out of that web and share with you have been experiencing so i thought like why make this experience more complicated because i mean all that is already complicated. It does have the power to put me in a super bowl mood at me becoming or turning into a person that i'm usually not it gets me to speech religion. The people around me so having negative experiences a negative feelings turns me into a bad not a bad person in negative person for the time being and that has attempting effect on how i speak to the people around me our relationship so i do hate that simple as that. I simply do not like that. So it is a super complicated and it did look very complicated from you to get out of it so i wanted to make getting out of it. A habit and a simple habit so first of all over here was identifying negative patterns so for me it was identifying what moments have that triggering effect on me. I started to realize that there are two to three things that always trigger me the same. The first one was spilling things. I'm not kidding. But whenever i spill things there is certain level of consciousness start being things about myself or this consciousness. Start feeding about myself done man. You can't do anything right. Okay the second one is food. I am ebbing foodi. Answer me if i end up eating something that i shouldn't be eating in my books. According to mars rules that say sugar. I will feel a little bit ahead about myself. So first of all was identifying. What moments have a triggering impact on me and my mind so simply doing that First of all today find out was by journaling. My feelings or just simply becoming more conscious towards how i'm responding. Are she acting to situations. So i step was identifying triggers seconds tout blows my To overcome this experience. If you're not willing to help yourself out if you're not willing to grow the navy this episode now free this not in a bag way because life is our teacher and also Need to so. Don't feel bad about it. If you don't feel like switching out of your patterns emotions feelings right now that's okay. I understand but for me. I felt like i had had enough office. Negative thinking of these negative patterns in a wanted to break free from them so step two with this willingness to break out of my patterns. So after i wanna did was like i said before mantra or rule is something that i tried to cultivate Why not come up with a simple one liner literally. Like forty five words. That will help me volvo. Pull me out of this situation so for me. Those words magically. I don't know where it came from. Ended up being hell bent on creating a heaven. So let me give you an example. So whenever i'm experiencing a moment in my life. What i used to do like i said before would be to pull up more negative moments too. I don't know why that would happen. But i would start like like. I said before it would be like a chain reaction one negative woman to another another to another and suddenly. I am gianing in a series of negative thoughts so instead of doing saying that i decided that i need to help myself in the moments were feeling down and low. And that is by trying to create consciously trying to create a heaven in my mind. What that simply means is when you see yourself experiencing negative todd instead of feeding a rain. More negatively consciously. Feeding itself positivity and support. So this moment if i was to experience it again. I'm pretty sure. I'm going to spill another cup of coffee sometime Another because it's just been twenty days of this year. But i'm gonna do that. I'm sure your dad for short guarantees. I'm going to spend on the cup of coffee. But what i'm gonna do differently. This time is as soon as the see myself saying. Hey butter fingers. You can't do anything right. Look you spilled coffee again as soon as the my brain saying that to me and i will. I know it's negative pattern. It has been falling for years. Mike job over here on my mantra job over here would be to suddenly get conscious light up the ding ding ding rain. And say. stop it right there. I'm hell bent on creating a heaven and all star feeding my brain positively non-asia that is okay. Everyone's pulls coffee once in a while. You're human come on spilling coffee. Means nothing first step acknowledging that the action means simply. It's an action. It's simply the universe together. I don't know what happened. But they were hundred other things that happened around me for the cup of coffee to spill. I'm not the person to take responsibility for this action. So maybe there were. I know something distracted mean. Maybe i don't know it could be anything right. Like just simply acknowledging. That inaction is just an action. You don't need to make a mean more than what it is right Do not do not like you know. run away from. Don't say like i didn't do that. Guy do understand that the right action would not be too for the coffee to fall. And i'm going like underscore. It's okay to do this. I run out of starbucks. That is not right. that is not what i'm saying. Do take responsibility for what you do. But just be a silent observer of your minds actions. What that means is. Let the action to spend action. I spoke a cup of coffee. Might next action is to clean it up. Move on with my day. Not making that action mean more than what it is. Came to data steph gone into hell bent into creating a heaven. Mantra the second step for me is to consciously support myself so giving myself words of courage and support when i see myself going down a negative dark hole telling myself no but look. You did this as well. Look you've been growing so much. Look you have this consciousness. Now you're trying to help yourself or just simply remind myself of another positive moment. I had the same day. Or what got me in this moment. Why was it here. Drinking coffee was because of all the harvard putting in to all these days throughout the throughout the years into building myself up. Where did i get the money from to buy. A cup of. Coffee is because of working is because of what i've been doing I not sounds like a small amount but just just example. Also move on from the details. Let's focus on what. I'm trying to say here What i'm trying to get at is being Acknowledging what led to that moment in a positive light so even having the power to buy coffee is huge. We don't realize very past for drinking. Teas coffees as a leisure activity. There are places or not everyone is able to enjoy the same thing in even. If you don't look that we sometimes are not in a condition to. I don't know get a cup of coffee because you're so busy day so even being able to take out that time of the day i tell myself that Angry at you got to take that time of your day for doing something for yourself right so as soon as a see myself building a negative vibe. I again practice. Mantra say hell bent on trading heaven. Hell bent on trading heaven. I would consciously tried to create a heaven in my mind by bringing up positive thoughts positive energies and supporting myself through that moment. One big elephant. I want to address. The gym over here is toxic. Positively first of all toxic. Positively t what that looks like is pushing positively on south. You don't feel like it pushing positive codes and thoughts and everything from other people. When you don't feel like it and talk to positivity can what it does is. It makes astronomy from our emotions. Our feelings end. It often suppresses negative emotions. As bad being conscious of the fact that i never called negative batra gaps because activity comes up and downs invades end. It is very very normal so couldn't be become toxically positive. Let that means. Is we label emotions as good and bad than do that. The make it very black and white because there's an array of colorful emotions that come in between happiness and sadness in between feeling down and high okay between low and high. There's like tons of emotions so toxic positive positively only pushes us towards positive positive positive until it gets annoying and like the word describes it toxic. So don't step into that and that's not what my mantra asks me to do. All it does is it tries to look for ways to support myself in the moment instead of bringing myself down so that's from my end on how have started this new year Practicing this little one line forward five were mantra in my life. Every single day has helped me a lot if this helped out than. Try this mantra for yourself. If not sit down with yourself today and try coming up with five words of your choice. That will help you in situations where you're not able to help yourself or anything that encourages you and you keep playing it in your head to love yourself. Support yourself in keep drawing.

Let's get drive into it without and that there's like like the main concept here which is off scar city. Were abundance so the audience here. Could you describe what that looks like. What is scar city in. It's true essence. Because sometimes i think we have the money. We have everything anything like. I'm not carsick. I do have it but could you explain that mindset and what that looks like absolutely. That's beautiful question because like you said very often when we think like oh scarce the okay. I have money so now i live in but scarce the minds of means that you are not living fulfilled life alive did fills really true enrich inside view. Meaning that you know that you are enough that you know what a gift you are relatively the world and scarce is when you're looking outside of yourself for other things to fulfil you because when you first fulfill yourself and tap into this abundance mind abundance mindset. It's knowing who you really are knowing how special you are knowing that All the beautiful gifts that you're bringing to the world are making you magnetic you become confident and courageous and then it's like life it's serving you versus you being a slave to the life and working too much no matter how much you have. You're still not feeling fulfilled. The scarcity means that you're living in a win lent. I call it when i have money. I will be happy when i have the relationship. I will be happy when i have the perfect body and held. I will be happy. No you want because you will get there that and you're still not fulfilled because you are going into these places from place of scarcity meaning. There is something missing so we really need to learn to live from a place of loving what s and knowing the possibilities right. that's Strong because can now living possibilities and Petya lake you know over there. You said that becoming like you know having an enjoying happiness in the moments saving it for the last. So how what is the most common data believes. You see that people have around money or around you know What are the most outdated believes that hold people back from enjoying jordan's i feel what i'm seeing on my journey and my clients and even on the retreat that we're hosting in person attendees com. What i'm really seeing. It's the sense of unworthiness. That's really what keeps coming up. Not feeling worthy and deserving also having the things whether it's experiences whether it's material things whether it's just deserving people treating you fair and wow like really the sense of undeserving ness an impostor syndrome like. I don't know enough. I am not smart enough. All of these stinks. Keep coming up with people in win. You learn a gain who you really are in your sense of deserving nece and worthiness everything becomes so much easier. Everything becomes a beautiful flow. Because you'll learn to trust the universe. Whatever you believe whether it's god the universe source whatever there is a power bigger than ourselves in it truly has your back So that feeling of enough. How do you think we can be enough because this comes up all the time that we don't feel enough in so many areas for life whether it's decrees because it's not in any more because we feel like he cannot get a job with a degree. How or because we don't look good enough in other people's eyes during the middle that thinks how can be enough. Or how can we be fine. That contentment ourselves Like you said it's you get to find it within yourself because my whole so many gorgeous women so many beautiful woman in their shy and timid and they have the worst thinking about themselves. I'm not thin enough my skin. It's not pretty enough. My heritz good enough. I don't express myself well enough. The most beautiful woman that you would look at there can be the most insecure so it's truly about the judgment of the world o'neill but the your judgement about yourself. It really comes from outside. So you know we all have the inner critic we just do like it's like you. I don't think that we are born witted but when you think about it we are growing up in the world of knows when you start rolling up your parents start telling you know you cannot do this. No you cannot go there. No don't do this. Don't be too loud. Then what you go to the school and the same thing you are being told what to do to be so you police everybody else around you when you learn to please yourself first and give your mind a different evidence. That's when again there will be this beautiful sense of fulfillment like really knowing who you really are. When you're not everything for everyone and you know. I i got my bachelors degree. I got my master's degree business and i was thinking. Oh my gosh. When i finish my degree everything will change. in my life. everything will become easier. I will get more money. I'll get a better job. You know and you know i guess my degrees and nothing changed like my first stop like. Hey what's wrong with me like why. It's not everything changing right but it's truly again looking for the win. But in the now find fulfillment in the now find joy in the now. Because when you do you really get to ask yourself. Does this really matter when for example. Think about your beauty your skin your makeup. Your hair like with pandemic eyelid gold. My you know fake nails that i had for acrylic nails that i had four like seventeen years you know and so many things came up like oh i should have my nails so i look feminine so i look professional. You know all these doubts. Come up but when you ask yourself will this really matter in ten minutes. Ten months ten years. Maybe it will matter in ten minutes because you're still feeling insecure but in ten months ten years will it really matter you got a or see on your test. Finish your school. I'm not telling failure clash. And i'm not saying that but we are so competitive comparing ourselves with other sweet thing that everybody else has as you know. You have to have ace really how about you really doubling down on your strikes instead of trying to better your weakness. That's something that i had to learn in you know in in my university times too because we are investing so much time in trying to better our weakness us instead of doubling down on your strengths. The moment that i realized what are my strengths. What comes to me. Easily with comes to me. A fourth leslie. What people are asking me what people are coming to from from three side. Hostels islet everything goal. Put everything on my coaching business. And i tend time my income. And if i can do it you can do it. You get to really focus on your strengths instead of looking at adver body iran. If you wanna look around you look for inspiration but not comparing. Now i am going to Just talk about the liberal more elegant. I would like free to talk by the or here. So you said that can is university student at so powerful that as university students we often get lost into thinking of what we don't have a focusing on our weaknesses because it's so much easier to find your weakness than to find her strengths right. So can i ask. You never got introduced to the idea of abundance. Almost everything seems to be in scar city. The positions in programs the jobs the degree. So what impact do you think all this lake embedded minds that we gain inner-city has on the weaving camp money in the world around us. I mean i think like even identifying. The problem is fifty percent to the solution to be nice. If you could talk about that yeah absolutely end you know. Have you heard before the term self fulfilling prophecy Yeah that's what's happening. If you think that there's a scarcity they will be scarcity if you think that it's really hard to find a job. It will be hard to find a job if you think that. It's really hard to be a well-paid well that will be your reality not mine. I believe that everything is working out for me. I believe that the perfect people perfect opportunities always comes my way and you can. there are an. it's so funny. I had this conversation earlier today with my mom because she started to read the book secrets so now she has a million questions. You knob level of attraction. And what does it even mean. An really excited for her journey. And i'm on this journey already decade right so it's like going back to the basics but it's really about what are your beliefs what beliefs you hold into because my grandma can tell me like this is really hard. This is really challenging. Well maybe for you but not for me. Because i don't believe i am choosing differently and it's not like you're going to lie to yourself or just ignore the reality but you can say. I used to believe that. Finding job is challenging. Now what. I'm choosing to believe that. Finding a job will come to me the perfect time with the perfect opportunity. You know so you are choosing your beliefs. You are choosing what is really going to be true to you in high end that no problem so that power of choice i think just because just knowing that we have the power to choose the situations around us what happens to us on the circumstances so do you have any advice on someone who's just starting out on shifting their beliefs because that has active decision. It doesn't happen by itself. So yeah it's beautiful like you said it's really about the decision. You're really gets to decide. How do you want to live your life. Do you wanna believe that everything is hard than you have to work really hard. That's something that i believe. In the past. I believe that to make money. I have to work really hard. I believe that. I have to have all the possible degrees and certifications just so i am abundantly paid and for me. The truth is different. Because i chose to be me. I chose to be me unapologetically. And that's what created this magnetism that you describe at the beginning of our talk in the beautiful introduction that you have done that you become a magnet for other people and opportunities by fully being in embracing you. It does imagine you're going for an interview of whether you're doing it online whether you're doing it through the email application whatever the energy you sent out there it's so powerful so if you believe that what is in your highest good and the highest good of all will happen. It will happen. You don't have to worry you don't have to compete with anyone. People will choose you because of your energy because of your personnel. Because of your experience. So when you i tend to yourself you feeling good you feeling confident you feeling trusting having a fate. It's a life changing. And like i mentioned before it doesn't matter what you believe in. Maybe you just believe in yourself. And that's great but you get to have the belief having a believe that there is more than enough jobs. there is more than enough opportunities. If you would have tell me five. Ten years ago that i would create a nine month six-figure coaching. I would think you're crazy literally. I'm like i'm not coach. I don't know enough. I don't have my life together. You know. I told that. I need certifications. And all these things and you don't would you truly need to do. It's trust in yourself and doing things that really light you up. If you're in a school for something that truly lights you up when you go out there people can sense it. You know how you walk into the room and you can ride away. Tell if the person it's a good or bad mood you can tell right and the person doesn't even have to talk. The same happens with you when you're applying for a job. The same happens when you are looking for You know like interviews. You are the magnet for the perfect opportunity. There are going to be the match to your energy. So take care of you. I in really step into abundance mindset in abundance might appreciating the richness of live wherever you are wherever you are you can go into nature appreciate the sunshine. You can appreciate the snow. You can appreciate the fresh air you can appreciate. How many books do you have. You can appreciate abc. You're writing on all of the signs of abundance. It's it's not. Just take so many things for granted so i know it's like so much to grasp of the biggest things really. It's have faith trust yourself in truly become unapologetic about who you are.

#B229 (boucl to bouleversement)
"Hello Word nerds welcome. To. The Dictionary there's some interesting words in this section I think it's a lot of French stuff. So we are at the top of page one, forty six the first word is blue play I'm going to have to do a lot of spellings and extra pronunciations in screwing things up. Probably this is spelled B. O.. U. C. L. E. With or without an accent on the e, it is a noun from eighteen eighty, six, one, an uneven yarn of three plies, one of which forms loops at intervals. To a fabric of Boo Klay Yarn. This is French like I said, Boo Klay means curly from the Verb Clare which means to curl. Boca, which means buckle or curl. Now we have Bhodan. B. O. U. D. I N. Noun from eighteen forty five one synonym is blood sausage to a spicy Cajun sausage containing rice and meat as pork or seafood. Meat. Seafood is meet Some people don't always think that but food is meat so it could say as pork or seafood. and then this is just a a French word that means sausage. Next we have boudoir. B. O. U. D. O. I R. Noun from seventeen eighty one let's see how many words of these will be French. We are three for three. This is a women's dressing room bedroom or private sitting room. Oh. Interesting. The etymology says like I said, it is French from the word Boudair, which means to Pout Peo- ut like this is so such an old word Old Way to use this but like. When a woman needs to go pouch, he's going to go to her dressing room or bedroom or private sitting room. I mean I feel like that's probably what the mindset was, but that's just so antiquated. All right now we have Boo Font B., O. U. F. A. N. T.. This is an adjective from eighteen thirty two. Yes it is French and it means puffed out as in Bouffant hairdos. A bouffant Vail. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but I have no I, know I've mentioned this before but I haven't animation called Bulbous on that. I did not right but I did the animation for and so how could I not mentioned this when we are at the Word Bouffant I'll put a link in the episode show notes so you can go watch it Let's see. This is French from the verb bu fair which means to puff. Now, we have a fun one. Bougainville Yahya Bougainvillea or Bougainvillea, or Bogan v Via Bogan via. B O u G. A. N. V.. I L. L. E. A.. You could also do the spell the last part. L. A. E. A. This is a noun from eighteen, forty, nine, any of a genus of the four family of ornamental tropical American woody vines and shrubs with brilliant purple or red. Floral BREX. The four o'clock family. Okay. The genus name is Borgen veal yeah. Well, it's the same word and this is not French this is from a Louis Antoine. Day Moonville that was his whole name that's a fancy name. All right. So we're one word is not French so far the rest of a Mario Right next is bow B. O. U. G. H.. It is a noun from before the Twelfth Century, a branch of a tree. what what's in that poem when the bough breaks. Nurse non nursery rhyme but it's you know that thing it is a branch of a tree especially, a main branch and bowed is an adjective. This is middle English. It means shoulder or bow from old English bog, which is akin to the old high German blog, which means shoulder from the Greek. Pickus, which means forearm. Not sure. That one got in their. Next is bought like I bought some food. It is the I form. It is the past and past participle of the word by B U Y. Second form of bought is an adjective from fifteen ninety nine and we have the number two definition for the word store as in bought clothes. Next is button doesn't seem like this is a proper word, but it is an adjective from a seventeen, thirty eight. It is a chiefly dialect. And then the synonym has bought. So bought or button as in the only boughten carpet in the region, and that is a quote from H W, Thomson. Seems incorrect to me, but I guess, some people say it. Next is Boozy B. O.. U. G. I. E. Noun from Seventeen fifty, five, one, a candle to a a tapering Celinda. For introduction into a tubular passage of the body. and. Then to be synonym is suppository Buji. Okay. this is it's a French word from Buji, which is a seaport in Algeria. Next we have buoy base or. As or yeah. I think that's good I always thought you pronounce the ells in this one but I guess you don't be oh you I l. l. a. b. a.. S. S. E. for those of you who want to know how it is spelled. It is a noun from eighteen, fifty, five, one, a highly seasoned fish stew made with at least two kinds of fish and then number two we have the number two definition for the word Potpourri. Next we have me on. Bouillon Bouillon Bul. You could say, Bouillon B., O. U. I L L. O. N., this one you do or can say the L.. It is a noun from circa sixteen, Fifty six, a clear seasoned soup made usually from lean beef and then just broadly the synonym. Broth. This is a French word from. Immune from the word blue year, which means to boil. Now. We have Bouillon Cube Noun from circa one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, a cube of evaporated meat extract. Next is boulder. You could also spell it You know the normal way is be, oh, you also spell it with a B. O. W. This is a noun from sixteen seventeen, a detached an rounded or much worn mass of rock boulder is an adjective. An Boulder E is an adjective. That looks very boulder e to me. It looks like a detached and rounded or much worn massive rock. Why does it have to be rounded or much? Worn can just be I don't know there must be some reason. This is short for boulder stone, which is from middle English boulder stone spelled differently which is part of translation of a word of Scandinavian origin akin to the Swedish dialect word. Boola. Buhler Ston, which means large stone in a stream that's very specific from Blair, which means noise plus Stan, which means stone. So it's a stone in the stream the stream is probably making noise. So that's how they got Buhler Stan and then we went to boulder stone and then just went to Boulder Next is bouldering now N- From Twenty the sport of rock climbing on large boulders or low cliffs boulder is an in transitive verb and boulder is a noun. Next we have Bouli. boulet. Both of those are good. It is spelled B. U.. L. E. I form Noun from eighteen forty a legislative council of Ancient Greece consisting first of an aristocratic advisory body and later of a representative Senate. This is a Greek word. boulay literally means will W. I l. l. from bliss tie which means to wish and. Now, we have the second form, but it is pronounced a little bit differently looks like it's just a bul one syllable instead of the two syllables for the last one. This is a noun from nineteen eighteen a synthetically formed mass as of Sapphire with the atomic structure of a single crystal I don't know what that means. This is a French word which means ball and there's more at the word bowl like you put your Syria cereal in a bowl. Next Rehab Boulevard. Boulevard now now, there's a couple of different pronunciations noun from seventeen, sixty, eight, a broad, often landscaped thoroughfare. This is again a French word modified. Middle Dutch is that what the D. MD Middle Dutch. and which the Middle Dutch word is bowling bulwark. Which means bulwark? Okay. Don't know what that is. We'll get there later. now we have boulevard Da. Or? Deer. This is a noun from eighteen seventy, one, a frequenter of the Parisian boulevards broadly. man-about-town. You you if you just walk you. nonchalantly. Casually walked down up and down the Parisian boulevards and you are a boulevard. Read our last word is. Move Their Samoan Move Air Samonte. Something like that B. O. U. L. E. V. E. R. S. E. M. E. N. T. Wolves Muehler Simone. Funny enough. It's a French word noun from seventeen eighty, two number one synonym is reversal and number two a violent disturbance synonym is disorder. So we had a boy, I'm not even going to say the words but let's see one I'm to count how many were French one two. Three. Four not this one for the this is fun right? Everybody's having a good time Five. Six seven I think that would be eight. no, not that one. Nine. What's that one is Greek so yeah, nine. Ten eleven twelve twelve of them out of one, two, three, four. Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seven, eight. Yep, definitely.

Awaiting a Covid-19 vaccine. Planning for its distribution
"Louis C. K. U. O. W. Calcium more details are emerging about Washington state's plan to distribute any potential covid nineteen vaccine. The state's plan was due to the CDC on Friday and it'll be released to the public this week. The plan is the first draft of answers to some huge questions around ethics and logistics for local public health officials here to walk us through what we know so far is K. U. O. W. reporter Anna Boyko Winrock Ana Hi hello. Well, let's tackle the ethics piece of this I who does get priority for a covert vaccine here in Washington? Great question the state is still working out the details. So this is the stage that there at in the states plan, there is a step to create another plan and that second plan will prioritize who gets the vaccine I. Okay. So they have a plan to create a plan, but in the meantime, the state must have an idea of the direction they're going to go right? Oh. Yeah. If and when a vaccine comes out, there's going to be a very limited amount at first and the state has an idea that the first doses should go to healthcare providers, older adults and people with chronic health conditions. Those people are going to be first in line after that like I said, the state is still settling on the details and in fact they have. An online survey, you could go fill it out. It's a survey monkey actually, and they're trying to get public input about how to prioritize vaccine. So they're also talking with different organizations they're getting lots of input and in the meantime, some big national groups are also looking into this and so health officials are watching how others are are thinking through. How to answer this question and just to lay out what's at stake here? Ethically, this is probably one of the largest ethics problems they've ever dealt with because they're deciding who should get what is a scarce and potentially lifesaving medical technology in the middle of global pandemic, and there are also still a lot of unknowns. Here's State Health Secretary John We. SPAN. Really depends in part to on which vaccines actually get the go ahead and what we know about their effectiveness and for which populations they are most effective. So we're doing everything we can up to this point to get prepared for that your. Different factors that could play into these decisions. So in a without knowing which vaccine they're going to be distributing, how is the state preparing to distribute any vaccine that comes for the coronavirus? So this is where the logistical decisions come in You know who is going to be injecting that vaccine? Where are they going to be administering at? For example, right now, the state is signing up healthcare providers to deliver. The vaccine also the states figuring out basically customer service WHO's going to be taking the orders for the vaccine staffing who is going to be answering questions about ordering vaccine, and they're also figuring out how they're going to keep track of the vaccine and it's getting administered. Then finally their communication plan, how will they get input from community groups? How will they educate the community and educate healthcare providers about the vaccine? That's K. U. W.

Listen to this sneak peak conversation. Because i'm sure that the some transform your life and the advice combined from all these twenty. Oh my god. Let's just see what can make that happen. Cre- you so let me know. What compensation excites you. The most here we go with the first sneak peek and going to be willing in. Moore's so welcome to the podcast. I'm your host on the scott. Let's get drive into it money that if we were to shift them like if you were given the power to shift them change them. Oh gosh a lot. We have such feelings of guilt and shame and embarrassment when it comes to our money and so i really feel for people because we are in financial education crisis at no point in our lives. Are we taught how to manage money. And then were left as young adults college grads to figure it out all on our own so no wonder we feel this embarrassment in this sphere and i. I just feel for so many people because it's not their fault. It's not their fault that they weren't given the resources they need to succeed. So i think one mindset shift that we need to see happening is going from okay. Yeah i didn't get the resources i needed. And that sucks. I'm not educated about finance. But how can i empower myself to take control. It's never too late whether you're just graduating and you're twenty two or you're thirty five or you're fifty five or sixty five. It's never too late to educate yourself and empower yourself because you can do a complete one eighty and change your financial future in just a matter of a few years. So that's the first thing. And then i would say the second thing is is kind of moving away from the scarcity mindset for example. I grew up in a household where we were always on a strict budget. And i grew up in a really wealthy county so there were people in my high school that we're getting brand new. Bmw's when they turn sixteen. My family was not operating that way. I mean we were not going to on family trips. Let alone going out to eat at restaurants so in my family money was always a stressor. We were always on a strict budget. And i grew up inheriting a lot of those beliefs that tends to happen. We inherit the limiting beliefs of our parents or our siblings or friends are the people we grow up around and those beliefs don't always serve us well in the long run so for me. It was this. There's never going to be enough money or oh my gosh. Money is always a source of stress. Or if only i could just make more money. That was the belief system i had. I had to learn over time how i could change that into something more positive and move from a scarcity mindset to more of an abundance mindset so learning how tell myself things like money is easy. Money comes easily and effortlessly to me. There's always more than enough money. And i'm grateful for everything that money affords me so i think those are some of the thought patterns. You can start recognizing and changing throughout time. Thanks and I wanted to ask you on. Thanks over there. You mentioned as a college graduate like oftentimes just left on our own to figure out our financial situation. So what did your Look like when you graduated. My budget was super intense. By the time i graduated. I was always quite. I was already the little finance nerd. I was a nerd ben. I'm a nerd now and so. I was very frugal. I had read enough books. And learn enough on my own reading blogs that i knew that i wanted to save aggressively. I didn't wanna graduate with debt. And i wanted to live frugally as possible because i knew that the sacrifices i made then would be more powerful and more impactful than the ones i might make later on so after college. I was only making thirty six thousand dollars per year. I actually never made six figures from a traditional job or career. So a lot of people think that i was making a ton of money. And that's how is able to achieve financial freedom. But i wasn't. I was making thirty six grand after college. I found a way to save half of my income. Even then so i was living off something like fifteen hundred dollars per month which is super super low. Now some people in new york or california they might be laughing like that's that's less than my entire rent just to live in this. You know expensive city. But i did have the benefit of living in louisville kentucky so of the things i did to save on housing costs was i found a roommate. I found a woman who had an extra bedroom in her condo and she was going to be renting it out for like four fifty or five hundred a month flat and that included utilities. So i chose to live with her. You know we shared a kitchen. We shared the common spaces. But i had my own bedroom and bathroom and that really saved a lot on my housing expenses. I also did things. Like i only drove used cars so my first car purchased on all on my own was a six thousand dollar used honda civic that i purchased from my parents and to this day. I've only driven used cars. I've never bought new. I've never leased a car. you know. Being wealthy has a lot more to do with living than living in a big mansion or driving a sports car. So that's something. I always like to tell. People is when you're in college after college. That's the time to make a sacrifice. That's the time to live frugally. Get a roommate cut back on expenses. Because what you do. As a young person will have a huge impact on whether you're able to achieve financial freedom future in a what i love over there is that before you talked about abundance mindset and now you're explaining how being smart about her decisions than thinking long term can have a huge impact so i like how they can go hand in hand we can have an abundance mindset and still be thinking long term about saving money Two things that seem to a big part of your journey our savings investments. Rachel correct me. If i'm wrong so can we tackled one at a time. Oh my gosh for sure. I love talking about investing and saving at a young age. So i always give example. And i'll use you as my guinea pig. So i'm going to ask you a question though if i gave you a penny and i told you to double it every day for months so in day one. You have one penny day to you. Have two pennies day three. You have four and then eight and so forth so if you double a penny every day for a month how much money do you think you'd end up with at the end of the month. Probably thousand two thousand okay. So that's what most people say. Most people say five hundred dollars thousand dollars. Five thousand dollars something like that you would end up with five million three hundred sixty eight thousand seven hundred and nine dollars. Isn't that crazy that's crazy. Talk over five million dollars just by doubling a penny every day for thirty days like you wouldn't even conceive of that it could add up to so much but it does at the end of the thirty days so the point is this illustrates the power of time and the power of compounding. If you kind of look at this in a graphical representation after fifteen days or so you have a couple hundred bucks a fifteen days of doubling a penny but right around day twenty four. It shoots straight up in the air. That's when it really takes off. So it illustrates the fact that if you want to expand your wealth and grow your wealth over time the earlier you get invested the better. Because it's those end days. It's those end years that you're really going to start doubling your money and making exponential wealth so i always tell young people. Time is your biggest advantage. Even if you don't pick the best investments in you don't have a ton of money you will still be better off than an expert investor. Who waits ten years from now to start investing as the saying goes. You know the best time to plan. A tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is today so definitely get invested right now. That's by trade. And rachel if someone doesn't have any kind of like experience with investing do you have any resources that recommend where someone can start. Yes there's definitely a books that i love. There's rich dad. Poor dad in. I'll have to give myself a plug in money. Honey i have a whole section about investing where i talk about how to invest with screen shots and everything of. Here's how you make a trade so that's been really helpful for people to get started. There's also a great podcast to listen to about just financial independence and money management in general. There's one called choose f. I select choose financial independence. And i love afford anything by paula. Pant okay so much sources. I'll put a link to them in the description down below The other one is saving. So what is your postal savings. Yes saving so important in money. Honey i talk about this concept called the golden number. Your golden number is your monthly income minus your monthly expenses. So it's how much you're saving each month now. I run workshops. i'll ask people. Hey if you're trying to save up money quickly. What sorts of things do you do and people will say. I'll eat out less you know. Make my coffee at home. I'll cut back on online shopping. Those sorts of things. What i realized after time at there's kind of a common theme in some of these responses we are all first and foremost focused on decreasing our expenses and that is very important. that's crucial. We must live within our means. We must watch are spending or we're not gonna ever make progress but what. I realized that there's only so much you can do to decrease your expenses. You can't stop paying your car payment. You can't stop buying food right so there's a little bit of a limit of how much you can decrease your expenses. So there are two ways to save more money and to increase that golden number. You can either decrease your expenses or and you can increase your income and the beautiful thing about your income is that there's no cap on how much money you can make a year. There's nothing stopping you from making more money. And the best part is you don't have to give up your quality of life in order to do so so i always tell young people if you really wanna make an impact with your budget and save a lot more money. You should be focusing on both decrease your expenses and increase. Your income. right reminds me off. Are these books. Tell you to cut on your latina money's installs and it seems an impractical wise. So i loved up. There is a flip side to rachel. It sounds like you always clear plan or maybe just like some sort of ideal. Your personal financial goals look like so. Do you have any recommendations as to. How can someone start discovering their personal financial goals. Yes in terms of discovering your goals you really need to dig deep and understand your why because saying something like i want to achieve financial freedom. That's not specific enough. So i like to do this exercise where i asked and why and why and why so if somebody says well i wanna she financial freedom will why. What does that mean for you. And maybe they'll say well. That means that. I get to quit my job and i'll say why what. Why do you care. What does that mean for you. Maybe they can get away from an abusive boss and again so i'll just keep asking me again and again why. Why why. and that's time thinking thank you.
