"Mba gm nba jam. I've obviously i kinda game. I grew up. Playing with it is is a big part of the beginning of your book. Just give one of one of your book is so good against called. The hot hand is that it has a balance of nerdy stuff in a balance of fun stuff so that everyone you sort of get everything you want and the jam stuff is like squarely in the fun stuff. I didn't know anything about the origin of the jam. Give people like a minute on the founded. The guy who made nba and the initial public reaction to nba jim nba gm was created by a genius guy named mark terminal. And when mark was a kid. He loves three things. He loved video games and he loved basketball and what he really loved was fire. He was actually a bit of a childhood pyromaniac and he would eventually combine. All three of childhood loves into the greatest hit game of his career. Now i m like squarely in that. Nba jam demographic where it was ubiquitous. When i was growing is your team would you play with. you know. i knew you're gonna ask this. And i was thinking about it last night and i think there were two teams. One was the charlotte hornets. Which i think was larry johnson and kendall gill When when i was playing. And also i grew up in new jersey's play with the nets which was derrick coleman and patrick which is which is kind of remarkable thing about what was yours. I was warriors with tim. Hardaway in chris mullin. And i would just have chris mullin. Shoot a million threes. i've tim hardaway barely got to shoot. You could get some fast break layup. So i would just pass the chris mullin and take threes well. Nba jan was very funny because in some ways it prophesied the modern mba where it's all layoffs and three pointers so the thing about nba jams. That i played it all the time you played at steph curry also played it. He actually sometimes played with the hornets because in some versions the game he could play with his father. Who is in the game which is very cool What i didn't realize is that everybody played nba nba. Jam was one of the most successful lucrative arcade games ever made in. Its first year of existence. It made one billion dollars in quarters. That's billion with a b. Like people looked at the data that was coming in from test arcades and they just couldn't believe it like they thought their eyes were playing tricks on them and so the question is why right like why were we so addicted to this spectacularly bizarre rendition of basketball and i think there are lots of reasons right it was. It was fun. You could do crazy things. When you're on the court you could hear the announcer say a whole lot of crazy things like boom shaka laka but i think there was also something addicting about trying to get hot because we know what happens in. Nba jam when you make the original and shoot every time. Because when chris got hot i was going to score like fifty points in two minutes. Your heating up and then you are on fire. And i think that marked hermel singlehandedly brainwashed generation of impressionable young minds into believing that the hot hand was real. Once you see someone make a few shots in a row. He is almost guaranteed to make his neck. Shot did did good. Shooters wasn't smart enough to know that. Chris knowledge hotter from three point range for longer than alonzo mourning was. It's a. i don't think it was smart enough to do that. Right in my head as a kid chris. Mullin was like the best in the nba. So but he's going to stay hot longer. I probably the game was that program that level while it was really. I think probably you were less likely to make a few shots in a row with alonzo mourning than you would have been with chris mullin but there's something funny that happens where it actually was not one hundred percent guarantee that you would make your next shot when you you're on fire. It was like somewhere between ninety. Five and ninety nine percent because one of the hallmarks of marker mel's philosophy as a maker was he wants you to be surprised and delighted at every turn and so there are some times when you're hot when you don't make it and those are probably not the The moments that you remember what we remember are the times that we do when we get hot and we seem to be Transcending the odds and beating probability in this superhuman version of ourselves or these video game character when you miss on fire. That's win if i lose. I blame the computer which was which was the classic way to rationalize away. Loss to one of your friends The computer just against me all right. Let's finish on a nerdy a nerdy thing. Because you don't just study the in basketball. You study you look at the sort of the study of streaks and connected to the renaissance of the hot hand. The comeback of the hot hand in the last five years is this scientific breakthrough basically centered around streaks and sequences of coin flips. That blue. everyone's mind it. Blew the minds of the smartest people in the world. No matter how many times i read it blows my mind over and over again because it just doesn't seem to make sense and yet it does seem to make perfect perfects so please explain in the best layman's terms possible. What in the hell these dudes discovered and and why it applies to the handed basketball. So before i do that let me explain who these two dudes are and how they discovered this bias right. So these two are two american. Economists in europe named josh miller adams on her who and they were thinking about the hot hand and they had the really clever idea of looking for evidence of the hot hand in three point contest. Because if you think about what three point contest is it's actually kind of this controlled shooting experiment. There are no defenses. They're definitely not adjusting to your behavior when you're hot so all that noise that clouds the data normally will you. Just remove it from the equation. So the doing that. It's actually harder than it towns. They track down footage of old three point contest on youtube. They paid some guy in switzerland. Who for some reason had vhs tapes of every three point contest and the hand coded every shot that had ever been taken three point contest. This was right before twenty fifteen. Which is the one that steph curry one. In new york and the first player they looked at in their sample was. Craig hodges so crashes one the three point contest in nineteen ninety nine hundred ninety one and nineteen ninety two i three pete and he was invited to defend his crown in nineteen ninety-three even though he was no longer playing in the nba in ninety three which is nuts but the idea of three point contest without the great craig. Hodges just unimaginable nuts. What do you think about. It would be like inviting reggie miller now which fight invite a movie cool if they invited. Reggie miller great stunt. The whole thing is a stunt anyway. Why not invite reggie miller right. So they're watching him shoot and they are running the math. And they're using this statistical test in the original paper and that have been used in every paper since then and those numbers suggest. That craig hodges is not hot and they think this can't be like we are watching this guy with our own eyes. He is clearly on fire and adams as to josh. There's something wrong with our brains or there's something wrong with the math and it turns out. There was something wrong with the math..

"Does not play like someone who cares about the team belonging to him who cares about his numbers who cares about who cares about any of that stuff he he is selfless he. He parts of his game are activated. That are not highlight parts of his game. Like he's a good cutter he slows for a fast guy he slows down in transition to kind of let the waves of people wash over him because he knows someone's going to become an open behind me or he has a six cents or can hit grayson for a he just doesn't play like someone who's concerned with. He's highlight player doesn't concerned with making highlights or making his arm. All in on him the two players are most interested in. Let's start with jackson. Because i think jackson's really good offensive player. He's obviously rusty. My question for you is long-term. Is he a four or five. What's what kind of front court because they've they've made. Hey now with slow as their starting for jonas as their starting five word is jackson fit into that. He's virtually gotten all of his minutes at at five. Also but i think that even as time goes on that his destiny is going to be a four. I'm interesting yeah. That's why because. I think that you are going to want somebody else to have to do that. Banging and cause as long as there are the nba leads the dirk itches. And the whoever right this guy is going to shoot an immense amount of threes. The attempts have been there since. He's come back this year but go back last year and the attempts got up really really hot and so he spaces the floor in a way that can be so beneficial offensively. And i don't know who is going to be. You know as time goes on. Who is going to be a center. Or whatever. But i mean i will tell you you mentioned xavier. Tillman who has been. A revelation is the second round pick. Jared was his best man in his wedding. Day are thickest thieves and so playing alongside a guy like that in theory again. It doesn't have to be tillman but somebody that's just gonna go in on the night where you're playing embiid and yokich and whoever else. I think jaren much like how anthony davis doesn't want to do that. I don't think that the destiny of jaren jackson. Junior is to be banging against centers every night and i certainly don't think that's how you would get the best out of him along because to your point when it's when it's jackson and clark together. He is typically guarding the fives gal. Who guards him is different story. Because of teams will put their lives on clark and their four on jackson because of the shooting but he's typically guarding the fives that lineup. Those two were about dead even in point differential last year. Obviously this year is a small sample of clark balance. unicef has been pretty successful frontcourt pairing for them for a couple of years. I don't the answer. Of course is gonna be a little bit of both right depending on personnel depending on what he wants but it's when his shot is going the more they can play him at five. The better mirant is going to be in the harder. They are going to be the guy. I mean this team. That's last in the league. In three point attempts in terms of percentage of their shot attempts. they don't shoot threes. Need more shooting. That's gonna change the jackson back. But i think he's. He's a really good player. The other one we have to talk about is the winslow thing is not working and you know they didn't trade. Tom crowder good. And and you know would be a starter for them now. Probably or could be a star for them now but he's good to cap space they forfeited. Maybe it was a big deal. Maybe was not. I mean. This is a team that has turned cap. Space in the draft picks and stuff in the eighty dollar tree. But you can't pull that every summer. The trade didn't really bother me in terms of in terms of the the opportunity cost of it. But i don't know when we start saying well. He's rusty when we stop saying than he's rusty and he's whistle out of time and he's only played twenty games it just the fit with him and mirant was always going to be a little weird it just. It just doesn't look right right and he can't shoot from anywhere he's always been a bad finisher but it just doesn't look like he's found a comfort zone it just in terms of his role in what he's doing on the floor. This has been a big issue for the last honestly six games because first thing on the trade the guys that they moved are not guys that the impact of of them not being around them last year was going to be felt nearly as much if you looked at a box score as it was just around that team I cannot say enough positive things about jae. Crowder and the other guy was solomon hill. Who ended up getting moved these guys in a time with. I've been around all manner of veterans over the years and they were absolutely positively invaluable. The season did not start off well last year. And you when you have those rock-solid guys that are everywhere on time that are willing to help young guys that are hard workers that give it everything. They've got every about being a professional that those the players on this team that were young they really really looked up to those guys. And i do think that those guys in the short amount of time they here had a massive impact on the job mirant and the jaren jackson's and everybody that was young on that team. Because if you get if you some veterans that aren't alike that it can it can also have the flip side a damaging effect forever on guys. But so i. I love those guys and those guys. I do. think at a profound impact on the team. The winslow which i was super excited. You know maybe he gets healthy. You know it's just been a disaster. He went to the bubble and then he all the reports were. He was amazing practice and he was like the jimmy butler type right. He was being a leader and he was everything and then he fell and he hurt his hip and then and to be clear he even now as as broken. He's looks on offense he's still very good defensively and could guard every position. That's still there. Yes and he didn't have a list of the bubble then. He didn't play this season that he played like seven games and then he went out get and he came back and there are so desirous to get him going that they were like all right like obviously it was going badly. He was playing well and so the answer was hey maybe we try him you know. He played point guard in miami when he had some success. Maybe that's what we need to do..

"Which then kind of teeter down. And then you had really the end of that that first visit dell year when they made the playoffs in played in the first round against san antonio and went to six games. And then you know that you really ran some people off. But it wasn't long enough that you couldn't bring them back. Because he had this horrible tyree givens ben mclemore garrett temple just a debacle. And that's how. They ended up with darren jackson then next season so as one really horrendous year and then the next season they were worried about giving their pick to boston so they played it out and so it was like this mismatch. They traded mark assault but they still add commonly avery bradley. They had jonas fallon tunis. They had these guys and they were playing it out and and then they just scott lucky and they got joh- and he is the biggest star that has been in memphis by a really wide margin. Like i mean he is. He is treated in a way. That like if you go. My son is eleven. If you go to like a basketball practice and the coach brings out jerseys. These kids are going to fight over getting number. Twelve all of them. Every one of them has job. Maria jersey said as much as everybody loved the team that team that was the grizzlies and everybody had their favorite guys. Zebo or tonio lender mark assault or mike conley like this guy. Like all the kids and there's murals all over the city and i mean it's just a different level and like you know. He has a highlight single night. That goes mega viral. And so it's all just such a new experience and the level of attention that he garners that of course people locally are going to be all then because people worldwide literally are all in. There was a year that i joke about this. The other day. John moran has a highlight every single night. That is like you can't believe it. There was a year a couple of several years back where they did the nba top ten. Plays of your seat right the grizzlies. Eight of them or seven of them were james johnson. Dunks because he was the only guy on the team that dunk only what was on the team that duct. It's never a highlight team. It was never like that viral life team and now they are so yeah. People have people on and press the hell out of me. It's been a you know it's all relative it's been a very mad season because there haven't been streaks there hasn't been like they've been they win to and then they lose what they lose to and then they win. What and so. They're five hundred. Season is not constructed of you get really really high. Because you've got along lou win streak or really low because you've got a long losing streak like they either way if they win a couple than they dash their hopes five lose if they lose the couple then they get you right back on board by winning and that kind of contracts five hundred season. But if you would've told me that. Jackson was only gonna play was gonna play less than twenty games them being a five hundred team. Would i know. And he's clearly gonna take him a while to get back to form on. Both ends is not look very good so far but it's early and i'm a big fan. I better the first portland but again you playing against the third worst fits nba history. And i think it's also interesting you know. They're trading away their guys didn't have this drama and the stir of some of these other teams trading their big names. 'cause they were older on the aging galea. Those two trades of gasoline. Conley are going to turn out pretty damn well for memphis console. Trade gets you balance eunice. Who's a monster and dhillon right. Who then gets you. Multiple second round. Picks i think from dallas commonly gets you grayson allen. Who's good who's essential was essentially an extra first round. Pick zoos a first round pick. They use a rookie. Jae crowder and we'll talk about where jae crowder white and who came back for him The rights ends up being brandon clark in the draft who good they have another pick coming. That's going to be a top six protected next year from utah so probably a bad thing but you never know you never know and a trade exception that they used to get igwe dala but which they get another draft pick like they did quietly did a really good job spinning those guys into stuff that is still spinning now getting stuff for them and they also set those guys up mark was able to go to a good team and win the title as being part of that raptors team and mike. Conley is gone to a team. That's got the number one seat in the western conference. It's not like they ship them off elsewhere and those guys you know they'll always have this love for so is kind of it was nice that the organization was able to take care of those guys and those guys feel great about that because marcus all got his toronto ring and he engraved in the inside of it grit and grind the mike. Mike conley has never taken the grizzlies app off of his phone. He still listens to the podcast. Do locally because i mean these airs. There's a connection there forever. And the grizzlies didn't screw those guys. Not only were they able to get return. Those guys have this amazing feeling about where they were able. Because i would have hated for those guys to land somewhere and then they just play their career out and their best moments ever were moments where they fell short in memphis. But let's i want. I want to focus on two guys that emerson. 'cause i'm all in anjar. I've been all on justice. The first moment. I watched that do play. I'm all in on him. And i've said before my favorite thing about the highlights are is yes great almost highlights to like last night. He had this cutting dunker. He cut jumped caught the ball in the air and tried some sideways. Dunked it at the back of the room. Like i'm afraid he's going to hurt himself and that was awesome ended. Didn't go in and.

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.

TCEA '21: Vernon Wright

"This morning. Our kickoff guest We're very excited to welcome an entrepreneur speaker life coach consultant and a former educator of fifteen or so years Vernon right. welcome to the morning. 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.

Has Washington Made a Mistake Dropping Alex Smith?

"For me. Alex smith if you're loading up to try and win the super bowl and the next two years because you've got stafford for these at least two years. I would think that having an experienced. Backup quarterback like alex smith on your roster that would be. That'd be a nice luxury to have. Yeah no for sure. I mean despite worries about being in the same time ever stand those worries. I seen those production meetings with alex smith. He's hot i got it. Yeah yeah he's he's a handsome fellow So lies so. I i'm with you right. I mean if god forbid something were to happen. Stafford's someone capable as him. Yeah a backup quarterback and we've seen a lot more injuries at the quarterback position over the last five to seven years. I i do think it's really important position to have. So i'd or if we're gonna talk football greg then i'll just simply say then since they wanna be boring i'll simply say that that you know I think alex smith is actually still a starter. And i'm not quite sure you will want to be a backup. Because they went five and one with them and that team was trashed. Let me give you the flip side. You ready for this. Which is let's say. Matthew stafford has a couple of bad games. It won't take long for everybody to go. Hey you got alex smith. He had a great career. Give him a shot. I've never heard of crowd. Beg for alex smith before my life. It hasn't happened to him. He's had that he had a really crazy career. You know when he was in san francisco and every year they were changing coaches or coordinators. He had this one game. I'll tell you guys were a divisional. Round game against new orleans. And he ran a bootleg for a touchdown. It took to overtime. And then he threw a touchdown. Pass vernon davis in the this old candlestick community thought. Alex smith was on his way at that point and he's just caught bad luck. It seems throughout his whole career but he's had a great career because he's a winner everywhere he goes. Now he's like the most inspirational guy on the planet. Yeah it really is inspiration for sure what he went through his wild for. It's crazy that he's sixty when i saw it.

"Nine, hundred, ninety when they were doing those changes. So even with us most students we go. Well creatively. How do you want to what kind of changes do you WanNa make we have a program in Chicago on our Design Explorer Program and we called Twenty four twenty, twenty five colored rebranding themselves right because here on the south side of Chicago, you have young men in their pre brandon. Like. Well, if they wear their hair this way or if they do this and that means they're they're this. Slide no, that's your perception. So but we talked in themselves and we say, well, you know this is what people are saying who are you did you? So we take that. Pass up soon here on. Shall we use that in? To about their brands, I talked to him about my brain. Right and then they rebrand themselves and in a few of those young men and now turned into successful businesses. So as Moses is in the trenches, actually getting things down, we do all kinds of programs express yourself portrait's. Things that empower are the next generation of creatives, but it's not just trying to create an army of designers. We're about thinking like how you build a better bridge. How could you look at your community in designing in a better way? How can you use creativity as an impact change? So that's kind of our philosophy. We have these crater starter kits. We also make sure that we don't. We're not dictating to them where creativity looks like for them. We will give him the starter kits in talk about the tools they go onto their thing in tanks and create amazing things in. So modern lesson out of this, being able to see all that that happened you know and even with the diversity like the word diversity because a lot of people use it as a placeholder word and. When I was growing up in in even in College Guana schools and looking at projects and even with our firm in company. So we want to be diverse so they'll get an Asian person, a Latino person hyper. They go boop, do a brochure. Now we're diverse. No, you're not diverse. That's the your stamp version of diverse but being inclusive is different. That's. Can you can you? So that means having my fish fry you know you can come over and when you have your your food from your culture, whatever it is, you invited me are. Are Much is getting on the bus or your you're getting on a bus going to school. I'm checking to make sure that they're saying that's community being exclusive it's it's getting invitation to be able to be partisan. And so what's happened in the black community when it comes to be treated in design design is in a US, a European approach and is he even talk in schools you have a house you have all these different movements you know Scandinavian and that's viewed as good design. So but then when you talk about other cultures and things like that and other palettes and other things they go oh, that's not good. That's not considered. Good design will design is not always respected, and so that's one of the main things that we share with our young people that asked Moses. We're not taking anything away from because that's beautiful designed to, but the designed from coaching cultural communities that you're from is just as powerful and beautiful. So learn. You know if you really want to be a powerful Zainur learning understand cultures in my people do they do? You know learn a problem solving to, and then you can be you can not only design for other cultures and communities but you understand the fact that design can make a not only solving a problem but also addressing how people think I definitely agree with what you said there regarding kind of design is what's hot in this European approach. I actually did this like townhall thing. I. Think it was maybe about a couple of months ago or something and a question was asked about like how do we use alternative approaches to design? That's like not swiss-based or German base because that's all that I've known and. I think I just said like you have to research like there's so many countries in the world that are not Switzerland or Germany, or you know what I'm saying or The Netherlands where you had to learn to particular European solid design, there's fifty four countries in Africa that means it's probably at least fifty four different design types or cultures that you can pull from. You know not to mention countries in Asia and the Middle East and South America and Central America like. Spanish or expand your mind like it's not that hard especially with the Internet like come on. That's exactly it. That's exactly it. And that's really what we're. You know trying to get our young people engage into no. Again, there were designers and pioneers that while before you like the example Charles. Dawson. But also what they face Charles Dawson, for example, designing like Obama rallies hair product plays where skin bleach argue no coloring was involved. So they're trying to design and do things from a black perspective, but they're facing the pressures of people wanting into design things in papers and things like that to white. and. So they're being forced into this euro design approach and they resented that they wrote about they talk about it. So actually showing our young people, their writings and information and what they experienced that empowers them. Right. So as Moses is about not only just teaching design. And as a craft, but understanding your culture where it came from and how influences you and what she can do and what you have to share, not only understanding euro culture, the Swiss the bows the German but also understanding like you said, Africa Understanding East Asia understanding you know Bahamas in in all these Brazil and all these other areas where designers of colored have made a huge impact is not just act is madden really when you look at it in perspective you know from from a numbers standpoint, those numbers for outweigh the minorities far outweigh those who are considered practitioners today in design or add on prescribed to the when I grew up I, recognize the design. In many areas in the communities was a little boys network and so my mindset was okay. I'm here to infiltrate this process and you know you may not like me for it. But. You know obviously policy to go in in to to get connected. But the whole idea is that numbers in these opportunities after change, I'll tell you a story. A dear to me. I was going to USC to meet with Chuck Harrison Wedneday in was walking. Up to the school near the young people that were standing outside of near the young men and I walk up to them and in house looking China look and see what they were looking at star. World.

"How did you first get started with them? I got started with Ob. It was probably and almost twenty years ago. Now, actually long nettles around the same time. I was already my business and what happened was there was a conference of demand sent me an email. There's a gentleman, his name Richard Nelson I grew up with him and saying he's designer as well. The designer of color he works. He's worked with this firm Kiko Baden guns amazing pieces right but. Him Grew up together and he sent me this message over the phone saying there's this organization called organization back designers you should. We should learn more about it. And when I got it, I was like, wow, this is amazing and I looked up some things about them about the organization about David Rice and Shana as you mentioned it and they have conference coming up and I don't remember it was thinking might have been in Atlanta. They were having a conference in that. Basically say I'M GONNA. Vote of this. And I went to the conference I said, you know at some of the sessions and I went to presentation and they were talking about the different cities in starting these chapters and somebody said, well, what's happening in Chicago and David Says Wow, hearing thing but complaints coming down in Chicago I don't see where I took that personal because I was represented at the at the conference an onsite Westwood. I said, well, what do you mean I went up to him and I was like so He says, well, there's no, we had a student thing in Chicago by then it was. So I was inspired is a great conference I mean all these designs color and that really change my perspective. PROJECTOR in this business and how was going? Wow look at all of us. Starving through that just seeing other designers of color and. I and talking about their pants. So I quickly went back to Chicago. So inspired our colleague David has like you know what we want to do some Chicago we wanted in Rupa bus. Consortium of Chicago got together in head a little round table. Instead we got started we WANNA do a chapter here, and that's a we did actually was the. Co Co co-chaired Obedience Chicago for fabulous out of the chair for another four. So for nine years I was you know doing ob and Lovin it and learning about. Culture. So similar to you, they were before us, but you know they inspired in Canada. Are Pads, kind of intersect. There was an intersection there with what we do, and then with ob D- what happened is Greta. We started as a group we wanted to do more. We noticed that in Chicago there was you know in the public school system and everything if if? Artisans who citizens designs nowhere to be found. So we recognize there was no programs at anything we want to do something. We didn't WanNa be this organization of designers color. They weren't doing anything for the next generation, and so we had these design pioneers like chuck when like I mentioned earlier that would was telling us the you know you all number one is business people of the biggest problems we have people called doing business is we don't to park their brother sister grow attitude mess at the door when doing business and she was big. If okay. Definitely accounted. House the thing that Chuck told me I asked, what's the most the thing that we're missing as people of Color in business and how we interact With one another and he said that was. We don't autopart attitude. He he was. He used this. You know colorful words they're to. It s a at the door we doing business I bet stuck with me and I said. That is so I see that and I said saw with this organization with we're doing. In starting this up, we need to turn this into something is GonNa be tangible and a business. So I say we don't want to just be paying lip service to this. We want to really be trying to make an impact, and so there was a group of us in and with all respect with ob what we were doing with ocd we were like, well, our path projector you're in Chicago is in Chicago chapter start really going to start really really getting big and we started to say, well, we're doing things on the mentoring. Front, and but we recognize that there were certain legal things that wasn't in place really for obedient. So let me say we have to make sure from a business perspective that we not just doing. This would add it to that. We have this stuff in place in. This is a business where it's going to be sustained and make an impact that goes beyond Darla. For the next generation that they can take us Moses in do whatever they choose. Right. So that was our objective we came up with the term project as most as as Moses is a scientific term, it actually means. Creator fluids from money into the spectrum to the other. So we just added the rate of to that, and we just said this is about creative fluids in our community going from one end. Of the spectrum to the other, then we came up with and we sat in a it was a company called giant step in a yeah may aired Bailey who was part of a group. Lisa. Moran of the just trimming him as a bunch of us that just sit. Let's turn into something silent Angela Williams, all these folks of color and we kind of went from OBT OCD in reformatted ourselves into project. Moses in the rest, just it just took off from there. So as Moses. One person thing. It's a group of people who believes Dream Self expression and community that was our our tag you know and that we also recognize that the world is designed by design. In We're dealing with not being included by design and we recognize that that you design inclusion things like that. And people are starting to people who've get a lot of observers but actually doing work to make a change people weren't doing. And we were like well. Moses has to be something has actually in the trenches that's making these changes and and not asking for permission to to make the change because that's how things don't change. You know under the things I learned brearley's that either with the civil rights movement that was a movement down by young people. You know you see him now and you go out talking be like I said you realize like one, thousand,.

"Home, and watch him every day they had. Every day they had all these astroboy Alterman, all these like great superheroes from the seventies right in. So I literally of inspired by these superheroes in literally. Like I said these though the icon in titled to this to. This. Day. I'm looking at the art on the loose website like your ultra man someone is Milan. Someone is C. Three, Po someone's black widow. that. So you see we have a matrix cells. Right we wanted things we do with autumn in with our brand is in calling ourselves creative therapies. We've you branding as a design problem to so many of our clients when it comes to us, they may think that they need one thing. But when we do our interview, we'll have sit on our couch. We have superheroes all over the office we have everywhere. And we try to get them to tap into their sort of inner self Amrou Creative problem, and then when they start to talk about you what my brand is this, our our my website is this they may think they're coming impressed work on the local, but we they out the big brand audie or they may need all these other things and so we come in with this kind of superhero mindset that we're coming in to save the day and to make sure that we rescue our clients from whatever uh challenges they may face and that concept and has been very effective for us. Especially comes to doing work in our communities. Design work for our communities, african-americans, infant backgrounds, also native of. So we do a lot of work in those areas. So you're a ahead of the curve with all this superhero idolatry via movies and everything you've got. You caught on quick as good. I said to myself there's something to this. Hope so Marvel into this day I'm a fan of all that stuff. Yeah. Everyone remember ultimately was live action to right? Yeah. Yeah. What. Sort of like a like a precursor to save power rangers or or something similar was like Japanese show that was sort of dubbed into English. Yeah. What are the best types of for you to work with as you sort of started describing it when you told me earlier when I asked you what your title was you said I'm a creative therapist and even just now when you're talking about, we have them come in and on the couch like it sounds that sounds like that's where all that sort of comes from. But when you're analyzing the clients I guess it's kind of a good way to put it like what are the best types for you to work with? So for US I. Think. We like to work with people that are passionate about what they're doing, and we working on projects the deal with. Education a deal with young people but we also work in the corporate environment we worked for for example, Exxon is one of our clients be working. They're designing their annual report when diversity right? And reworked gone. Museum projects. One of our clients is actually the Marcus Garvey Museum in Jamaica. So we designed the Marcus Garvey, museum designed to Peter Tosh Museum in Kingston. Jamaica. and. So a lot of clients that you know the deal with Music Derek community deal with problem solving but mainly things about self identity these that are similar to project as Moses. We the energy that we create attracts those kinds of clients because. They know they were concerned about our young people that we do work in the community looking at creating opportunities in the crater round for for young people. So it's amazing. Be a wound up attracting that kind of work Okay. So you had this affinity for superheroes. You've put it into the business like I'm curious. When were you sort of exposed to design? It sounds like this is something that really you kind of had grandmas and she were a kid. Yeah. Yeah I was very fortunate. So my mother who again baby girl her name's Elnora Lockhart affects you call her baby girl. She wanted to be a designer, my family's from deep South from Starkville. Mississippi. and. My father from Jackson but my mother, my grandfather had over one hundred acres of man down in the deep South in the Negro Leagues and stuff play Baseball on his laney editor baseball field and all these creator things around. So my mother who have drawing horses and baseball players and and things of this nature. And my her sisters. When they got age, they want it to become teachers and nurses and things like that and so they became a part of the great migration north. My mother wanted to be a designer. She entered a mondays art contests books from like the famous art courses back in the sixties. Fifties and six. And she entered a contest in one and so from that, you know she wanted to become a designer but her parents didn't know what that was. What is this in Seoul? Instead they said what will you can work at? One of the restaurants in and so she worked one of the restaurants to build money to buy her own books. So she brought these famous, our course books, a series of them. And in was self taught, she started studying art in doing the exercises and sending them back and worked at A. Few things some things on the fashion, but mostly making clothes and things are sisters and and people locally in the area. So when I started drawing and doodling as a child, we moved to Saint Louis and I saw was Chiba I was born in Saint Louis and I started when I was like four and five I started doing leans edging and she noticed that right away and she took my drawings and put him on a refrigerator a baby you can be anything you want you grow up and be you So I got that could on that PAT super early I was like five and she gave me those books. So at eight nine years old, I have these Norman Rockwell and learning about these artists of Oh in these sketches and so I studied those books as a key it's about time I was ten and eleven I. Knew I was going to be in noon that I wanted to Megan impacted in Seoul. Went to a high school started studying design in Saint Louis was really hard to find a school brisk wind up going to a technical high school o'fallon text design, and from there you know start taking business things, Dale Carnegie Courses, and then I got a full scholarship to the Institute in Chicago Solo I. Oh, my mother and father for putting Annette Path and Kennedy endorsing my father didn't know what it was. You Know My mother my my dad was like more. You're going to work, use your hands and so. Has. Helped me now because I do a lot of exhibit design, you have to know how to build things too so. Yeah. That's how I got here. I'm curious. Do you still have those books? I do. I have four of the now I gave to my niece. Jaber. WHO's artists up and coming artists to pass that on. That's kind of a family heirloom to her and told her the story behind it. She's a up and coming artists yourself. And that's one of the things that I do project Bass Moses of course is is making sure that the next generation has access to these kinds of creative twos when I became a designer and started working out and used to always tell my mother when She Sydney to college I said I'm going to bring a degree home free for you because of the love that you've shown me but I started telling my mother would I'm going to do is when I become famous designer I'm about his big Old House Mc Donald's I'm about y'all these things you want to. Say Baby I'll need all that I'm.

"Through in-depth interviews, you'll learn about their work, their goals, and what inspires the as creative individuals. Here's your host. Maurice Cherry. Hello everybody. Welcome to revision path. Thank you so much for tuning in time your host Maurice. Cherry and this week I'm talking with Vernon, lockhart, creative therapist artists and executive director of project most out of Chicago Illinois. Let's start the show. All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Vernon Lockhart. I am a designer. I call myself a creative therapist. I am a exhibit designer, a brand developer interactive designer. Artist. and. I. Am the executive. Director of a program project called project as Moses out of Chicago. Now. One thing that I've been doing for everyone kind of just the start of these interviews during this pandemic kind of just doing a check in to see how folks are doing. So how are you holding up? You know we're given the space in times we're in we're I'm holding up pretty well I think one of the saving grace for me in a lot of this is. When you grow up on from the lane of saying boo as I grew up in a very rough area in Saint Louis and you know we faced adversity every day so. You know you have the coronavirus in things like that now. But for me growing up, you had to face all kinds of threats, potential adversaries so Well given the circumstances, I I commute back and forth caring for my mother who affectionately call a baby girl just can't for. So that's probably one of the key challenges but as far as. Things go we still have a lot of clients that we work with online and for project ASS? Moses alive things virtually with the students given the circumstances I'm I'm very grateful and feel very blessed to will be functioning at full capacity. What does a regular day look like for you now? So for me, a regular day would be getting up one thing that I don't have to do as much in. Okay. With this is not commuting back and forth so much. But getting up saying my prayers getting some breakfast getting on my laptop, looking at emails checking the circumference of the day clients. Immediate needs doing those usually that takes me up until about mid day I usually try to schedule any meetings I have around thirty two noon referee and then any errands I have to run out of usually do air early evening I'm a southern boy living in a city. CHICAGO. So I still have a yard and in a house and things like that. So you I'm out cutting. And things like that towards the evening. So I would call it a pretty normal southern boy day usually my average day but I'm a businessman at the same time. So you know it's a balance between the two but that's an advocate from. So speaking up about business you have a design firm called art on the loose is that right? That's correct. Tell me about it. When did you first start that? So are Donna loose very interesting. We been in operation. Now for about twenty three years I started in the late nineteen I'd say about ninety six and tonight six roughly. And we I was actually working at northwestern university in their at their center for Public Safety Division and we will working on a lot of. Copro shears and things like that in. So it was kind of mundane just no adventure knitted all in myself in one of. Colleagues that I work with addicts Ner we had conversation as I wonder do more I want to be free. I would have some creative freedom here in we started talking about doing our own design work. And in our conversation start playing with name ideas in that I mentioned you know I wanna be free I want to be loose in a good way right as a heart let's let's and so we kinda because we were both artist and he says so let's just call the artem loose in. That's how the name was born in banding Hannah came from this whole Superhero Ultra N-. Staying that I was called as a key going up still combat to this day and so we use kind of empowering. The word artem lose but also with the whole color Palettes, we used our background is how we grew up to create the the business name and I have to just this quick story about ultraman lousy key kids were were calling me ultra because my it was pointed they call me the football hero Alterman. I was like you know and I came home from school I'm I'm one of ten kids, right so I came home from school that I was upset and I start crying to my mother baby girl and I told her what the key is will call him the main she say at wait a minute isn't all tremendous food bureau SABA come home from school to watch ultraman every. Day, and she said I thought he was a superhero say he is. He says we'll take that negative and make it a positive and so I literally went up to my room and start designing year Alterman on and I, went back to school they pop my collar and was like they were like ultimate success right on alternate and so at three sixty beds. So it started all Japan. And took that negative in Medan deposited but also is one of my personal experiences and Brandy. In power of branding, and so I took that icon and symbol. Even. If you look on our business site, you'll see that iconic symbol for for ultra mass I knew. To this day in and I got my design in artistry from my mother, my mother went to design marks. So that's how artem loose in the name came in existence with the story behind it to wow ultra man that's a that's a deep cut i. don't know of many folks listening might remember ultraman though that might not remember. Can you tell us a little bit about what ultra man is? Yeah. Alternate Superhero Easy Scana I guess people you know from Voltron and things like that. He was Asian Superhero and he was this normal his out of. His normal self his name was Hiawatha he had to think all the Beta capsule. So whenever you took that data caps held to decide who will be transformed into this gigantic superhero called ultraman. ultraman got his energy from the sun and so you had this pulsating thing on his chest that represented his heart and so he needed to so he would fight off these monsters. These guys, Zillow type creatures every episode, another monster that he had to rescue and say the city, and so I was just so inspired by his ability to go in and protect the rescue. You're not you myself as a protector and so he would go in and rescue and protect than. So our lives or something just inspired me as superhero character Saba, come.

"Hey everybody. Welcome to this episode of the Kirk Show. I am joined by Vernon Jones who spoke at the Republican National Convention both spoke together on the opening night of Vernon Jones is a former Democrat? Or is a Democrat I want to have him say it from Self Vernon. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show tell us your story and tell us why you support president trump. Well, thank you so much. I am a lifelong Democrat I am. But I'm also out touch with the Democrat Party meaning. Them, they let me of the things that they embrace. Now such as no bores turn their back on law enforcement how the Democratic Party has treated African Americans. Although we've been a captive audience at infrared past thirty to forty five years, they haven't done anything reduce while look at President Donald Trump. He has a track record of getting things done. He's about results in certainly now he has lifted his entire country, but he has a track record. He's done more to help American community than any president probably going back originates. Talk. More about that because that is not the conventional. Perspective of the mainstream activists press they say that president trump is in as an enemy of black people were. Can you walk us through that especially for some of our listeners and viewers that don't always hear the perspective that you have Well. The liberal media is part of what I call slave masters They're the ones who literally plant. I would say those agent provocateurs to attack independent thinking black men like me in women from coming off the plantation why? Because they don't want us to be able to think independently. Now thing that was clearly demonstrating a couple of more recent examples one Joe Biden talking about if you don't vote for him, you ain't black to when he said that black people stinking or not as diverse as Latinos, and then more recently again with liberal media. MSNBC when you saw me during the interview with Craig Melvin because I was telling him sport is president of based on his policies and based on -sition and what he's done directly for the African American community. He didn't WanNa hear that. What he wanted to hear was what he asked me was in that was what he asked me I'm sure someone whispered in his ear, but he said, are you being paid by the trump organization that was bigoted in L. that shows that liberals s station are upset because I didn't fit their narrative I think you're there wall I didn't attack. Don Trump ironically, it was a report that was being paid and the station is being paid to attack Donald Trump and not let African Americans feel that they have people who feel express the way themselves. I do come on their show without being attacked and run back into a whole, but they didn't do. I'm not like Joe. Biden, I'm not. One of those which ICAGO stains that come out every year trying to determine what the weather's going to be. A groundhog yet I'm not a groundhog. rummy back in this president is not a ground hall He is really working to earn the black vote and they can't scare them off by the traditions their Republican candidates. So can you walk us through more of kind of did you support President Trump in two thousand sixteen what was your view of him in.

"From piece out of CNN, by errol Louis Comma, Harris is a veteran campaigner who has made history over and over and over again first woman district attorney San Francisco First Woman Attorney General of California i Indian American elected to the US. Senate and only the second black woman senator and After Convention vote that is really pretty much mere formality. 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.

"Revenue and solid potential for growth. The best course of action is to wait until your company is on solid ground before attempting an IPO after decades of steady growth. Lillian knew this was finally the right time to take the leap in nineteen eighty-seven. The Lillian Vernon corporation opened on the American stock exchange now known as the new York Stock Exchange. It was the first company traded on a major stock exchange that was founded by a woman that first year they collected twenty eight million dollars from trading one point nine. Nine million shares in the company. It was a smart move. The Lillian Vernon corporation was still growing exponentially and now they had money to seriously invest in their future. Within the next year, Fred oversaw the construction of their new distribution facility which opened in nineteen eighty eight that year sales skyrocketed to one hundred twenty six million dollars nearly two hundred sixty eight million dollars today. But as Lillian learned before business success and marital success don't always go hand in hand in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight Lillian and Robert Katz divorced after eighteen years of marriage as Lillian later wrote in her autobiography, quote his eyesight and hearing failed and in his rage at life. He struck out at the person nearest to him me and quote, Lillian now sixty one marked her second divorce. With a bolt choice, she would no longer be known by the surnames of her husband's past present or future. She would rather associate herself with something more permanent and more personal her business in nineteen ninety. She officially changed her name to Lillian Vernon. The nineteen nineties proved a tumultuous time for Lillian Vernon, the woman and the company in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine for son, Fred hockberg had been promoted to chief operating officer and president of the company. Fred had already taken over many of the day to day operations of the company. And the idea was that he would soon take control of the company completely wants his mother retired, but Lillian now in her sixties showed no signs of slowing down in nineteen Ninety-three Forty-one-year-old Fred abruptly left the company publicly, Fred claimed he was leaving to focus on charitable and political causes. This was technically true. He went on to be the acting administrator of the small business administration, co-chair of the human rights campaign and chairman of the Export Import Bank. But it was rumored that the real reason for his departure was. A dispute with Lillian about the timing of this takeover of the company. It's possible that after nineteen years of working for his strict work, obsessed mother, Fred, couldn't bear the stress a day longer. Lillian later, said, quote, regrettably, I believe that Fred never heard my gratitude apparent criticism often sounds louder than praise and quote. Once again, Lillian demanding temperament in the workplace had destroyed her relationship with one of her closest family members. She'd Fanta learn the oldest business principle in the book, family and business don't mix. Lillies younger son, David continued to work for the company as vice president of public affairs, but he was his father's son. He had no ambitions to run the company neither Fred nor David, both in their early forties had children of their own to bring into the company fold without a successor. The aging Lillian would have to stay on and shepherd the Lillian Vernon corporation through the nineties herself. The early nineties were difficult time for everyone in the mail order industry. In the fifties. There had been only a few dozen mail order catalogs in circulation by the nineties. There were more than ten thousand and they were all competing with shopping malls discount chains like WalMart and TV channels like the home shopping network with the market. So oversaturated the Lillian Vernon corporation would have to do something different to set themselves apart in nineteen Ninety-four Lillian turned her focus. To new technologies TV shopping and the internet items from the Lillian Vernon catalogue were sold on QVC shopping network, and the entire catalogue was included on one of the first major online shopping CD roms a year later, the company launched their AOL storefront including an online catalogue and website. Lillian was practicing unnecessary business principle
