George Washington Knew 'Home Is Life'

"The whole process around Washington, though, leads us back to Mount Vernon. It leaves us back because he always, you know, from reading what I've done on reading and studying and going to Mount Vernon and others. He always had this idea that where he that home was his life. That was, that was his world, but when he would go out to serve, whether it be in the military or as president or others, it was always to come home to Mount Vernon. Is that what you got in your research before we get into some of the business issues? Very, very much so. And you know, he, I also sort of gave us the idea of the citizen legislator. He gave up power twice, both when he was when people tried to make him an emperor when he was victorious with the Revolutionary War, but he said, no, I'm going home. And then he was sort of drafted to be president and went home from that. But he really made Mount Vernon into a show plays an Anna place that, you know, was like, what they might even call an incubator today in venture capital terms with so many business enterprises.

John Berlau: George Washington Made an Art of Reading and Questioning

"You know, industry John, I want to talk about it because you're very well schooled as well. I mean, I've been to, you know, as my dad was said, I had more degrees than I probably understood. And I get that, but you know, the one thing though, that I think is missing, and if you don't mind jumping in here, because you said it, he learned by reading and asking questions. Is that a lost art in our and I'm going to jump to today's one? Is that a lost art in our world today? There are a lot of people who still read and ask questions, but as I say in my book, George Washington entrepreneur. Available for sale at Amazon and whenever wherever books are sold, I'm talking about to talk about books. This is he made an art of it. I go into one of the examples in my book about how he wanted to build a greenhouse that they had greenhouses back then, even with the lack of electricity, building material, but it was some greenhouses in Europe and a few around America, but it was very rare, so he would ask everyone he knew and Virginia and they mentioned some people, Catholic family, the carols and Maryland, so he wrote to them. He wrote to the widow of a farmer who had built a greenhouse and she knew a lot of herself and she corresponded with him, Margaret Carroll, so that's the thing. He would just, he would just write and ask questions, almost doing like an interview, whether it's to build in something in business or on the military or a greenhouse at Mount Vernon. And would also read a great deal about, you know, he was a great horseman. Thomas Jefferson said he was one of the best horsemen. He was the best horseman he had ever seen. I mean, there's famous he's famous for riding into battle, but he actually read books is invoices show of the book the order from everything from how to care for sick horses to actually make jumps.

Environmental Racism is Real

"Are going to talk about environmental justice and along with that environmental racism and which describes the fact that people of color and low income people are most likely to be situated in your sources of contamination and away from clean water air and soil so research by the la times finds that in the us. The best predictor of whether you live near hazardous waste site is the color of your skin. That is wild but not surprising right. This is america so now from not far from where i live here in the very latin next community vernon here in los angeles families have been waiting for over three years to have lead contamination. Cleaned out of their community. Contamination came from the exile plant which melted down. Used lead acid car batteries. You don't want that in your backyard. But that's what these families had in their backyard which state regulators had allowed to operate on a temporary permit for more than three decades so state regulators like thirty. But you keep doing it. And then they kept letting them do it for over thirty years. It's crazy right. And what can i tell you. More about this. Despite history of air pollution and hazardous waste violations. They were still continued to operate ex. Able to operate it. California health department analysis found that nearly three hundred children under six years old living near exide have elevated blood lead levels in two thousand twelve. We've known this for a while. The last year the plant was in full operation in twenty twenty. A court allowed exide to walk away from its clean up responsibilities leaving us the taxpayers with the bill to clean this up and i wanted to echo this example or highlight these example because a heard of exits. Its own backyard but too because you see the failures of the government time and time again in airing on the side of corporations and this is an example of environmental racism at play and unfortunately as a nation points out this is. There's nothing you this has been happening for decades and decades and a few insights here about specifically about the us fifty six percent of the population. You're toxic waste. Sites are people of color. People of color have thirty eight percent higher nitrogen dioxide exposure compared to white people. There are two times more likely to live without potable water and modern sanitation and ninety five percent of people of color that have claims against polluters denied by The environmental protection

Kickoff is so good to happier will good morning right from the great state of texas. But you know what. Here's what's really interesting to realize into. Think about what was a conference right that that originally started here in texas to see the worldwide impact and for me to be a part of this collective dialogue while just absolutely while so so privileged and so honored to be with you all this morning and You know just ready to go ahead and pour into the people. And i want to say this real quick isn't i don't want to break any rules. Andrew is it okay for me to drop a protest this early is it okay Hang on let me choose it okay. And we check. I think we're good taking all right. You'll take you take the hit for the team. Absolutely all right. Let mcglade dropped approach. Have for you guys here real quick. There is a word that really comes to mind for me in. It's the word convergence may say that one more time so if you're watching this right now welcome so glad to be with you all this morning. That word is convergence and you know talk about not only pedagogy but talk about tech and to talk about. Seal and talk about all of these other things you know what really we're faced with right now and and i say faced with really we're embarking on this great opportunity. Take a step back. Look through the lens of convergence. Where do all of these things come together. And just why did i mention that before. Andrew the word. Wow just absolutely while i love wow right i like glenn virgin says well you know it makes you think of like you know when we were chatting before we even started. We were talking about how you know decisions you make and everything you do has to be contextualised right. You have to understand the effects something. We'll have i think of when i think of convergence then it's kind of like their many different things out in the atmosphere but we can find those points where they come together where we can get like a you know a little bit greater value than than what something might have a loan and one of the things we discussed. Was this word as well value. What is valuable. What makes something valuable when we think about the challenges were facing as educators Wh-what where what. What kind of should we be looking for what what what to us should make something valuable. It's not just scarcity. You know because we know there's no shortage of knowledge and always being generated So that can't be how we define value has to be something more based on how effective or useful it is right. Yeah and you know great topic there and great question really for all of us to to think about to look through and so i will share this So grateful for the clients that i've worked with in my private coaching. One on one. And the school districts that i've done consulting with and i will share this with you. All one of the things that i share with them is really talking about exactly what you have mentioned. Which is this term value. And so that tends to be a little nebulous sometimes right. It tends to be a little vague. Like what is value. Vernon what is value andrew. In simply i say this and i share this value is when we help someone else achieve. What is important to them. Say that one more time value is when we help someone else achieve what is important to them because when we hope someone else achieve what is important to them. Guess what we have done where the we have helped them in the beginning of the process the middle of the process or the end of the process or maybe all the way through the process we have made an impact. And let me tell you something folks. We all want change right. We want substantive and sustained change. Those are the two s.'s. If we don't make an impact ever really done what we need to do to change Yeah i can imagine you know. There's the sense that sharing something Creates more of something right. I loan you a book. We don't actually have to make two copies of the book you've got your you can read it and i can read it By helping someone. You're just expanding you're just adding positively right Is that kind of when you look for things that that can sustain. Things that can have an impact How're you personally measuring that value. Yeah in so really for me and let me say this real quick again. What a wonderful conference Just thank you and major prostitute an idea because this really brings us to very much so in line andrew. I don't know how you're inside. Saddam my head andrew. But you're doing a great job of it thank you. That's why they got me here. Is that whether you got you here. All right well. I appreciate it man because it really brings up another word. And that's this concept of community and when we when i ask people through the various speaking engagements that i've done in a different clients that i've worked with again At the district level and those one on one in small groups. I've asked him what is community mean to you. And typically what will we naturally think about community especially pre pandemic. We would think that community is really those that are geographically around us right. Those that live in our neighborhood. Or maybe in our city or town but really community as a broader definition in community really. Is this concept of those that we choose really engage and interact with around shared values. So as we go through this conference this weekend really through the whole month of march really looking at the replays and and just really diving into it over and over right. I want you to think about this. Who are we in community with whoever we invited into our communities because that is a game changer once we connect with people in community. Guess what happens. We start to find out what's important to someone else and as we start to interact and we start to learn about people's stories. Guess what happens. We get the opportunity to invite people into our stories and to find out what's important to us once we have that foundation. Yes what happens. We are able to say to ourselves. This is what's valuable to this person. And once we find out what's valuable to someone and what something is is that is truly meaningful to them. Then we are able to add clarity to this concept of what is quote unquote of value.

She'll be the first woman of color named to a major party national ticket but will she turned the tide for Punxsutawney Joe? I'm fine coming in calling him who's been running that rather lackluster gaffe. Campaign, six, thirty, nine, now, thirteen ten KFI. May Thirteen Ten K. K. A. DOT COM morning. So Gail Live and local via the collision specialist studios joined this morning by Vernon Robinson the third and a Bruce Abberley authors of coming home how black Americans will re elect trump vernon bruce. Welcome back to the show. Thank you. It is so great to hear your voices I am so glad you were available this morning. So I wanted to get your take on. The. Pick of. Kamala Harris and I am. Pronouncing her name correctly I hope I. AM commonly Harris as Joe Biden's running mate Joe Biden have anything to do with that pick Vernon. I doubt it. I. That's what I thought. So tell us why. The puppeteers. have. Decided, they want Kamala to be the president of the United States? You know it's possible that Mrs Biden plans to do a Wilson and try to run the administration from the east wing of the White House but. I don't know I. Guess What It'd be telling is if disaster strikes and they are actually elected. The mass incarceration ticket. What will happen is you need to watch who gets in the cabinet if they're all come folks than you know on the way out on the twenty, fifth amendment. And I can't help. But think you know it's interesting to Dunno. If you saw this but The Washington, post of all media outlets summed it up I thought rather well saying that basically what this election boils down to is a vote for Comma Harris versus President Trump for president bruce, your thoughts. Well. I think there's a lot of truth to that and I think though the this is an formula type of pick sounds odd because she's the first. African American woman to be on a ticket, but it's also an old ticket old form. Choice because The idea is what we're GONNA check off this box. We're GONNA put an African American on our ticket and then so that gives us the African American vote. I don't think that's going to happen at all I. think that courses already out of the barn and it reminds me a little bit of the Republicans back in nineteen thirty six who thought well, you know. Now, we really do have to go after the black vote but by the time they decided it was way too late and I think that that vote is already out the door that that Donald trump is still going to win twenty five percent of the black vote in this coming election and I don't think there's had Dang thing the Democrats can do about it. So this is a desperation move for. Desperation move. Well because what we're as choices Susan Rice brings a whole lot of baggage right Elizabeth Warren. Yeah well no, that's not going to happen. So but it is interesting that you make the point about. Dr Jill Biden because my understanding was, she was the stumbling block here after colleges or into Joe, Biden, about bussing basically calling him a racist didn't use the word but come on I mean you knew exactly what she was saying and Dr Biden Joe's wife not too happy about that Vernon. Well. What's what's really interesting? Is. that. come on during the debate. Essentially said. That Joe. Is a segregationist because he did not want the schools in Delaware to be desegregated. And that he specifically said that he didn't want his children growing up in a racial jungle. which was how he described what desegregated schools would be like the most humorous part of that discussion. was she also took him to task? For, working with segregation, you know other segregationists in from the south. And Biden's response. Is I work I Work across the aisle well. Joe That's not across the aisle they were all democrats. and. I still have to wonder we talked about this last time. I had the pleasure of having you both on six forty three by the way thirteen, ten, KFI thirteen ten. K. A. dot com joined by Vernon Robinson, the third and Bruce Everley authors of coming home how black Americans will re-elect trump but we spent some time talking about The gaffe prone. Joe Biden and his interview with Charlemagne, God words to the effect of if you have to. Think about whether you're gonNA vote for trump or vote for me. Then you ain't black but the gas continue, I mean this APP after he I mean it was just it was mind blowing when he went after that reporter and basically asked him if he was a junkie and then there was I mean I didn't even know how to respond to that. I don't know about you gentlemen but I was just blown away and then he gets into this. Whole thing about how the Latino community is more diverse than the black community bruce how does he get away with this I don't think years getting away with it. I mean I think that the idea he can he's basically said, well, the black community you know they're just don't think other than being Democrats they. They're never going to go away in the Democratic Party I mean they have to. I'm he just feels he talks like a plantation owner sometimes. And he doesn't talk like somebody who sincerely going after the black vote who really wants to say here's what I'm going to do for Black America where when his he ever said that and I think he was not going to say that because he has nothing to offer to the black community..

I didn't know I couldn't but I've tried. But she ended up in Notre England so I went up there to say hello and yeah see. Stay up there for England's difficult north okay. This winter fell val. The wildly lived. There is very difficult to work so anyway Does what I discovered because I was on unemployment only benefit. They give you a bit money every week. Like seventeen pounds a week. It was enough to feed yourself a lot more not again. Somebody called enterprise scheme which is a mega satcher price time. She had put a system in place. So you can make forty pounds a week for one year and then they would help you meant to you in a business. Whatever Garage Yoga you had some ideas? What type citing and graphics into that and with government help and those same meetings on trying to do here as well it's leg they're they're local version of destiny? But that should give you a bit of money and mentor you in a in a place you know they give you free space to work in. And so that's something I'm working with the ICT here to do the same. So Yeah I did that and then I I moved from there. After a few months into teaching They Call Tech. It's government run I Dunno organization and that's where they all this equipment and they he didn't know how to use it Macintosh stuff so I I basically operated it and learn how to do magazines and do production. And now he's teaching people how to do that at at the same time so I discover the ability to learn something really quickly and then teach it like known for years. Yes so that became the businesses just basically teaching people how to do it. Not going that lead onto. I went back to London after your nine year and then worked for company for a couple of years as published a couple a couple of months as a publisher consultant teaching as well and then doing my own so I was teaching every day. It was good money Teaching and then they said. Can you supply the equipment and then you know the the staff grant business very quickly for about a year and then it went bust. Okay so what happened during that first buskers discuss again. Well this is looking up and down if I never seen so many ebbs and flows right and this is again you went there and boom. What what what happened? Well well that they the government we they were giving you a government guaranteed loan was fifty thousand pounds. Now made a lot of money from my I I deal with the same company that I went bust. Okay because they have to buy all his equipment so I bought it might profit moved into four storey buildings supplying all the staff recruitment and training maintenance all equipment stuff and then start picking up clients but my biggest client they owed me like at the end they load about two months worth list of salaries of supplying staff. Wow and venture capital pulled guy. And I'm stuck holding the bill. I'd already paid the staff so I had no choice gold and start again. That'd be weeks brain dead and then you start again okay. Now let's see. I think I need a break. This is this is an amazing amazing story. And we're not even halfway per se right now. I've left out a lot of good stuff. Okay let's do that. Let's take a break when we come back. Let's talk about the next things. How was he was able to bounce back from despots? Talk about that more after the break. And we're back from the Maldives. I'm just getting back into the break with Sylvan. Mark Mark Vernon for a season finale to hustle share. I'm still blown away. I don't even know I can't even like they just how much things happen and just short the amount of time but what. I want to find out after folding. How did you get into tech shareholder twice? Wow I start against Mola Allah but I kept having these three robberies in a row and so when bust again start even smaller than what it taught me was to just be really careful. Don't extend credit and stuff like that all anyway ended up teaching a lot a lot of. It stuff guy. Yeah and then that was brought up about nine hundred. Eighty nine hundred ninety four and I'd like to be able to teach without being invaded. I had to figure AH put video onto CD already been done on videotape Deck Academy at the time. Yeah so I worked out how to put on CD okay and that was brand new wasn't even NPC's that and it was. Where were you okay? So I worked at a put like eight to ten hours. A video on CD Oke High compression so most products for desktop publishing stuff we knew and I actually also about ten of those products of period of time but we make the CD so we took a few three months to make the first CD. And then I went in one thousand nine hundred five New Year's Eve again while they went to Mac Expo in of Sam Cisco Okay and I shared a little stand and I sold CDs off to stand now and then I met my first employee there then we set up a little office with peanuts. Hardly any money yeah then by then and So that was the growth of the US company but there was some history from my previous going. Bus Rheinland Yeah and I put my ex-girlfriend in charge of the company. Okay very good so we we had we after about a year year and a half. We had a big deal with a publishing company. And she didn't like it. I I liked all that and then sunny lawyer's letter saying desist and come back to the UK. And I said okay. No so I actually split and Dan had to recreate all my own products again. That company went by the wayside and UK elite on the tech side and he stayed in San Francisco traveling back and forth. But you yeah most of the time in Silicon Valley South. I'm Cisco what was it like back in the ninety s when not much different expensive and got it so I lived in Converted little tiny shed on a farm like a like a one acre plot of land that was grandfather they couldn't sell it. Isn't that was in Stevens Creek Boulevard. which is right behind Apple Ella? So I drove past apple every day. My my little office Two men office and it grew from there. But basically we're making CDs selling them and then in Nineteen Anti ninety-six. We went online with the first video courses. So I did all this stuff. What was it called? It was quick. Quick Day yeah but that was the only way of getting video online and they came up with a new version stream online and I didn't get any joy from apple so I sent like email emails to everyone. That's always as job Steve Jobs. Whatever okay eventually one of those goes through and within twenty minutes there were three managers asking me? What can we do to help you? So what. Oh you ha- you've got the real Steve Jobs. Yeah with one email well. It took a cause I didn't know his email. A lover motormen insent like five emails bull and one of them was one of the amount so that was a big hustle. There absolutely. Yeah so you know you can't do that now you're gonNA end up in spam so we had apple support for a while and as we grew and But it took like five years before the market today in the in mid nineties in Silicon Valley was but it was new the Internet bubble on the same street as Netscape and and that was exciting and working with companies. We were in a kind of a boring content business right and so it's just like working with authors to get content out and then get them out and see and online and you can see some of that stuff on the Web The way back archive you can see us back. Yeah we go. VTC and I had an investment from Japanese company that wanted me to go to Japan to produce content over there and that was a venture capital.
