"Someone that you've made a major difference for the person i'm thinking of was a Here's a college administrator. And she had been through a couple of different physical therapists for her back pain. She had even I saw her here locally. I shade even driven up to baton rouge which is about an hour and a half away to get treatment up there because somebody recommended you know. She was not messing around. She wanted to figure out how to get better. And it presented in conventional terms very much like a herniated disk and it was quite debilitating for her. And i got her diaphragm back. In the right decision they know through the manual techniques energy techniques and the having her do some exercises and she gets off the table and her first reaction is that she's kind of confused like she's wrinkling her bra because she can't figure out where cain wedge like this is. This is hurt so many other times. When i've gotten up and now it's not hurting what she's looking around a little bit confused and then she was angry because she had. She's like why didn't why wasn't this easy. It shouldn't have been easy to get better. And why didn't this happen sooner. So that's really one of my favorite reaction. That is so interesting. She was angry. Did that anger last very long. No no but all of the leading pain science experts will tell you that they get really excited when somebody cries gets angry when they explained pain to them or work with their treatment. Because then they know they're going to get better because they're getting into that limbic system and you're releasing that the chronic pain and i suspect that not just chronic pain lives in our limbic systems but chronic limiting beliefs chronic habits. That you know because we're all emotionally attached to those things so she just had a big emotional release. She would probably still grumble a little bit but she has a good sense of divine order in the world to that. You always get what you when things come to you at the right time. You're ready to receive the so then. Is it true that you can work remotely with almost anyone. Yeah yeah and that's been just such a joy for me to have that different format and figure it out and so like recently. I worked with an entrepreneur. Who was really for the purposes of making a breakthrough in her business in business terms. I would say that that hip issue is where her inspiration her structure were at odds with each other and she sure enough. Because i picked up energetically. And i asked her that question. I said tell me where you know where you're what you're inspired to do. Isn't like the you don't feel like you can do it because of some system or something that's happening and she had a very clear answer for where she was struggling and she did how some hip pain. It wasn't enough to require medical attention or anything like that but as we talk through it and got it sorted out in her body and in our business than her hip pain went away in that session to trusting and so we be really embodied the stress in these. Yeah i think it's so important to capture it address when it subclinical before you end up needing to be in medical professionals office not that. That's i mean we're all here for that you know and but the but i think that business has a in our public health and their schools and things like that have a real opportunity to front end the so that fewer people and up needing reactive treatment that you know in you know to give people some of these tools so that they can start to figure out where you carry stress in what story. You're literally living i One of my favorite stories That i use and my brother that. I'm writing right now threads how i've lived the story that it's the egyptian myth of isis cyrus. And i'll give you just the nutshell. Version of a cyrus was the king of egypt and his brother sat was jealous and angry and wanted to be king. And so set trick desirous into laying down in a bejewelled coffin. Had his soldiers shut the lid. Nail it carry him to the nile river to send him downstream to his death cyrus his wife isis found out about this and she retrieved his body took them to a cave and breathe new life into him when set found out about this he was furious and so he tracked down. The cyrus chopped his body into pieces and scattered the pieces down the river. And then i again when she found out about this she retrieved all of his pieces and brought him back to the cave. She was able to find everything except for his phallus and for that she made a new one and she brought him back to life long enough to conceive their divine child. Horace and then a cyrus went on to be king of the underworld which for the egyptians was where all life came from an all treasures were found. And if you were close to cyrus in that story you probably would have thought that his destiny was to be the king of egypt and yet as too. True destiny was become the king of the underworld and he literally had to be dismembered to come back together in a new way. And we use dismemberment metaphors in our language all the time. We say we can't get it together. Were falling apart. Our lives are shattered. Our hearts are broken.

"And i'm here today with the expert on the vegas nerve. I'm here today with melanie. Weller melania mindfulness. Today absolutely i strive to live in mindfulness mode and not just to have it be a segment at my day. That's a that's a great thing to strive for. And i do the same so melanie. What does mindfulness mean to you. And then we'll get started talking about the vegas nerve to me. Being mindful is really being fully embodied to being like body full or like instead of mindset. I actually liked the term body. Because i think mind is kind of this slippery energy. Sometimes that's not You know our minds don't always have our best interests in mind. I think the But your body will always tell you the truth and to really bring mindfulness into the by really It bridges the gap between our conscious and subconscious and like brings all of our shadow elements into light and Allows for an aspect of flow in our lives that i think we're all seeking in terms of reconciling our inner and outer worlds. Well it's interesting that you say that about the mind because you know i know the mind can bully us quite a bit in. It can lie to us quite a bit. Tell us things that it thinks will protect us but that is not necessarily the case. Well let's get digging in about the vegas nerve you tell us what is the vagus nerve. Where does it live. What's it all about. The vegas nerveless almost everywhere. It is your tenth cranial nerve. We all have twelve of them and so it starts in our brain stem and it goes all the way down into the pelvis. It invades our vocal cords our hearts and our justice systems. When it comes out of the brain stem it actually goes down to the heart and loops. Back up to the vocal cords. So i like to think of it as the nerve that allows us to speak our hearts as it travels down the esophagus and goes.

We have got home have a Robinson on the show and have her is recognized as one of Scotland's leading Educators and Bridal hair Specialists within the hairdressing industry and you can find Heather online at HR hair. Co. Uk, but ever came to my attention during the first lock down. The reason she came to our attention was that she was creating some incredible lives on the Weller Global community and her stars are brighter. What was brilliant and looking deeper into heaven. I checked out so much of a work. I was really inspired what she was I loved the way she presented but what really grabbed my attention with her was that she was running a salon confidence club and this is about teaching hairdressers how to actually develop their confidence that really shocked the coughing. Maybe cuz I've been somebody that maybe has had passed worries of certain hairstyles or dealing with certain clients and your confidence can really wobble. We all know if your confidence looks a bit wobbly in front of a client and that can happen real knock-on effect for you working with that client. So that's what we're going to dive into with this episode today have us going to talk us around how you can develop your confidence. We're going to get Heather's back storage and we're also going to hear how she really wasn't interested in being a salon and why she wanted to be a freelance hair stylist educator. And also what is great in this episode is how much of a geek she is home address in and to hear people really passionate and see her dressing as a hobby. It's so inspiring and I think as we head now here in England into our second lockdown, I think it's now the time to really connect with who you want to be as a hairdresser go in forward. So I think you'll get loads out of it. And remember at the end of this we are going to drop off into the extra shows if you want an extra show remember page On. Com slash how to cut it. So let's get into this interview with today's guest have a Robinson. Welcome to the podcast ever. Hello, how you doing? I'm all right. Let's give a heads-up who you got in the background. You've got some company there tonight. Yeah, I've got login in the background now Logan is about going off all of them. Now if you watch Heather's lives. Yeah Logan has become the superstars the lives and this is f as dog by the way, and yeah, he was he was chilling out earlier when he having a good snort. Yeah. So in the background as always, it's like every time I go live if such stolen I'm like, I don't always try to tell me a little bit. So come on in have a there's a beautiful Scottish accent there firstly song Long listeners around the world. They want to know where abouts in Scotland are you from so I'm from Glasgow. I'm still in Glasgow. Just got Morgan Heard the door. It's fair to go through Thursday is by the way, you could see Logan in the background just a little wander around. Yeah, so I'm in Glasgow and I'm based in Glasgow snacks as possible. Yeah, it's quite yes. It's a little bit. Texas so we're going to today really I want to learn a lot more about you ever because I know so much about you yet. I feel like I know so little about you as well and I think for our listeners but the actual title we going with with this one today is be the bad a stylist you were born to be and I really want to jump into confidence as a hairdresser and how yeah because naturally we all just in addresses are super confident wage, but we're not and I want to go into that but first up just give us a background to you yourself at the hairdresser and the educator that you are so dead silent test for Life vests make an celebrating a thirty years in hairdressing since I went and got my first start to get old job, but I should have I know I can't believe it's not long and I'm not I've grown up enough to get it that long and but I have I've been a free-lance educator for the last four years as coming up to and pring. Is two that I was a full-time well educated as well. I still freelance in a silent a couple of days and a solid know and I feel as forging the soldier about three lines to work for Whaler and I Ramon courses and do and sell and training for silence as well. So you are a perfect example of somebody that works in a very you're not just doing the one part of hairdressing here, which I think is really interesting to hear isn't it? That is quite diverse when you say what you do. Yeah. I like have them back all the one left out as well because unfortunately it's not prominent just no but I'm also part of our wedding company too. So one of my friends just got our wedding can't lease or purchase required me to kind of like high-end weddings for like American guests coming over to get married in the Scottish castles. So yeah, I've got a little bit of everything. Unfortunately. It's it's a little bit quiet or Not Dead. Just now so when you say wedding here because you are multi-talented and I know I mentioned in the pre r i mean you've won so many various Awards having you just again, just listen this through some of those awards that you bought one just because I want to set up the you know, who you are to our listeners. And it's it's more more sleeping within the the whale education sites. So I've won three awards for real education. So of one field technician of the Year back in 2009 and that you also one overall technician of the years of technical educator and then I'll one field technician of the Year again in 2012, which was great home and and I also from that we got to go to Malta and that was voted one of the top three and email which was like year of Middle Eastern Asia, but it went to someone else so I thought it was so great to the nominated.

"Were two hundred and fifty six tennis players in two major events, and there was one positive test. The fans to me are still a little jarring but anyway Let's Let's wrap I. Don't. There's not I mean you know I'm sorta looking for news stories. The ATP looks like for the for the first quarter of the event they're gonNA reduce cries, money. At. Two fifty, five, hundred level advances as you would think given the reduction of fans Andy. Murray had A. Physical. Setback the W. T. looks to be adding. Events They're really scrambling there. Many more ATP EVENTS WT events. Part of that is because this is the China swing for the W., T., a. and obviously The China events were shut down months ago but playing opportunities are sparse and scarce players. looks like players are going to have to depart for Austrailia in the middle of December. So the the off season already small to begin with flick window got even the. Smaller and It's a it's a strange time in normal years. We would say that the second half of October is a strange time. But all the more. So in in two thousand, twenty anything it feels he add Jamie. Now that that's it I mean, yeah I think that the biggest thing I'm looking not looking forward to but just anticipating is the decision making surrounding the Australian Open given that as you said, it's it's right around the corner given that quarantine time and You know be another another major to just see how things are handled and who plays, and of course, as you mentioned, there are some injuries Roger Federer? was expected to be back in two, thousand, twenty one but you just you just don't know given the the situations that it would require for their families and travel, and frankly I I also think that it might affect some players just training generally you know because there they do try and take time off. But I think that's a really hard thing to balance in this time where you might have taken. Time off during the shutdown or maybe you just Didn't didn't train hard or I mean that whole idea of tapering or preparing for a big event I think has been completely thrown out the window for so many players and for me that training arc and how you prepare for a tournament and just prepare for a season which is you know now with tennis..

"Appreciation for. Entertainment and how fast it can all go Like on an life in general, you just later appreciation for everyday life not to get too deep philosophical. Simple pleasure going to a sporting event without a mask. This is great. I'm glad we were glad we did this and I think people will wait for your book if the Marcelo Rios Story is chapter one keep going. You've got something here. John I, appreciate it I I. Hope we can do this again sometime. Louis this was we'll. We'll. We'll check in soon and we'll see hopefully sooner rather than later. I John Take care all right take it. Easy. Thanks again. Thanks to well or for the for the wide ranging conversation always enjoyed talking to him on the road someone who again a straight shooter who really knows the INS and outs of the sport and? The players have confided in for years and you can see why thanks to Jamie our trusty. And Co conspirator odd Jamie I'll bring you in I will bring you a now I I, don't know if you've ever. Meta Weller Evans but one of those essential figures at all workspaces in all sectors have that just know where the bodies are buried. Be Know How things get done. They have institutional memory they are. Pragmatic One of those figures that sort of keeps keeps the wheel rotating. Yeah, it was really interesting to hear him talk about everything I. Mean You guys covered a lot of different topics you know from those crazy stories he has to you know about. Bailing people have jailed to how people perceive the unquote athlete life and lifestyle and all that how he had to deal with that and how you know experience he had so that there was a lot of different interesting topics yet his job You know I think it's funny when you asked. What's your? What's your story because? I feel like he definitely has one of those jobs where it's hard to explain but people are really interested once they hear at least his title or the people he interacts with. So definitely an interesting conversation as you said from a long time tennis insider. I think it would probably mean burning if not a firebombing bridges that there was a great book in there somewhere just a war stories I mean the other thing that struck me and strikes me quite frequently is just how tennis have different tenses from other sports especially team sports and you know you you look at a media guide for a team and it looks like a conventional or chart like we would have a sports illustrated or like any business would have tennis. Doesn't really have that It's knock set out like. A team, but the flip side is I. Think People Sometimes underestimate how many people are part of this ecosystem and.

"I, Agree John I I don't know where the movement stands since the tour shifted over to Europe. But you know the group that I saw assembled on on the grandstand court at the US. Open last month that I just referenced it lacked the critical mass that one would have hoped to have had I think and and I I. Don't think that group. Would have. Very much credibility and probably no leverage with you know ten is's other entities. So. I also found it a bit insulting. for anybody to equate gathering with the the nineteen eighty, eight parking lot press conference. I mean. Let's good. Why don't you point out the differences? I think that's important. Well. The first ten years of my career I worked for the ATP when it was a players association. and. I will tell you that we as players having three votes on a on a nine member governing body We didn't win many votes. We didn't. We didn't make too many gains or advances as you can imagine. And so You know the. We. Finally, we not only the players but even the tournaments we. Convinced, to go along with us. Finally decided look there's a better way to do this and. We each have a stake in. The other partner successful. So, why don't we break away and form our own tour and the ATP can go from being just a a noisy players association to having a a real presence within the sport and so that's really what the nine thousand nine, hundred, eighty, parking lot press conferences is all about it was a a landmark event which initiated real change and it gave you know the players an opportunity to take. Responsibility for equal ownership of the tour. And and so to equate. What happened. With. The P.. T. T. P.. A.. Assembly at the US Open with that. especially for me who fought so hard for the creation of the each I founded. Founded as I said a bit insulting. What do you think? It's obviously someone more nuance than this, but basically, it's a partnership between..

A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.

Please welcome Stephanie to the show. Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening. So cool and so. You had your first business you? You began doing that twenty years ago. And then you landed to the happy planner, which has been a huge success and It's a it's a beautiful book. It's something that you want to. Hold in your hand, and just like carry with you all the time. It's so cute and fashionable. Where did that idea come from? And how? How did you of get to that point? Where like I want to be in this market of making planners? Happy like honestly we've had a lot of great products that of sold weller mckellen's pretty cool, but the happy planner is like it's so me. It's totally me so the the way we came up with. It was pretty much the same process that we did it with anything. As we and my sister is heavily involved in product about men in our company as well, but we watch in decide okay. scrapbooking was huge for a while, and so we were able to kind of ride that. That wave and we've kept coming out with products and line extensions and and then you kind of see that it was kind of starting to taper off. It was not as popular and the products weren't as weren't selling and going doing the having the sell through that they did before, so we're like okay. We need to know what creative women are doing next. which is what my mom did, so we would always be looking for what. What what do i WanNa do what is something that's interesting for me. and and then also kind of searching pinterest looking around water, creative women doing so for some reason on pinterest people were taking just regular planners from staples, or whatever and they were putting our scrapbooking products, stickers and things and making them cute but the scrapbooking don't really fit like they don't fit size-wise. They didn't fit if you're you know the stickers we were. Were to commemorate memories and things, and that's not necessarily the things that you need for planning so I kind of just you know, and they were boring to staples like office supply things. They have black brown different color bays. You know really great. You know what I think. Someone would would think the businessmen would like. And then there was like three designs that were like purple. Paisley or some ugly grandma color. You know I'm a woman, I. I don't want that, so we thought definitely we could do better in design. We could get them more affordable. We could create accessories that would go specifically for them, and then you could put in those accessories like things that are positive so that every single day when you're planning when you're having fun putting stickers out ever, there's this creative positive message that makes you happy that keeps you going, and so it was just a kind of another. Offshoot into what we normally do. What are creative women doing? And at this point? It was like people are busy, and they want to be creative, but they need that little bit of licensed to say it's okay when you're planning your schedule. You can kind of put a sticker downer. Says you can do it or just. Those little positive affirmations make a make a big difference. I love that so much were all about positive affirmations and There's something that I still love about having a planner in front of me like an organizational planner. Where where I. Can you know touch the pages and I can mark things off. It's so different than a calendar on Google you know and I've always I've i. still have a planner, so I love that, but I'm curious because you have built such a successful brand and obviously. You've separated yourself in so many ways by having something very unique You offer as something that's very I would say year to the millennial woman. But how how have you separated yourself with your branding? I'm just so curious about like where your sales come from utilizing social media, you have a huge social media following. So, how what kind of what was your? What was the method to your madness at that point when you started thinking ahead? Yeah, so at that point. We had we had a very successful company in the craft industry and up? Until that point, we had what I figured successful products. We didn't really have necessarily like brand. Following social media was just coming up, but you know there was something about the happy, and I think my own personal passion for the product helped in planning it. No Pun intended. because. I feel like we got to this place or like this product line. I just feel like we need to be able to have a brand. There's gotta be a message behind because the message of the product is so powerful and so really. What happened I mean there wasn't? A Master Plan I love this product so much. That I just started talking about it and sharing on social media back in the periscope days. You remember, periscope yeah. Remember. About it and I just said you know what I would anytime we would come up with something, or we had something new exciting happening in office. I'd like I'm just GONNA share. It's just going to be I wanted to our product and the brand to feel like like we were just friends sharing like. If I was you know to call you up and say Oh, my Gosh I'm so excited. We just got this prototype in, and here's what it looks like. Here's how I'm going to use it and every. Every new products came in. We previewed it on periscope did live Q. and A. is, and and that's before people really doing that and we were sharing the process and the product, and sharing my excitement, geeking out over stickers and a paper planner you know, so. It became I thought there was really no plan other than to share authentically, and that was really before, but you know everything authenticity be authentic was just such a overused catchphrase, but that's what it was because I didn't actually want to be the spokesperson. For our company, and because it's such a team effort, and so I'm not. I'm not maybe maybe I wouldn't had the idea for. Let's let's look into to paper planners, but I didn't create designs, and I not the artist, and I'm not the one who source the product and sold it in such a team so but. In order I felt so passionately that. Don't have relationships with companies. They don't have relationships with products, but they have relationships with people and brands, and if I could be that conduit. To Give A. Personality to our land our company then. I'm like all right. I'm willing to do because I was the one before it was like no, I don't really want to know I'm just I'm fine to not do it, but when I was sharing something, I was so passionate about the following just came. We did not say hey. We want to get to I. Think we're over six hundred thousand on instagram. We didn't have a plan for that. I mean eventually to grow. It takes you get to a certain point. It's like okay now. You have to plan, but we grew our numbers very very organically, and by just engaging with them. You know true engagement and it's. It's not even just the number in the plan, but it's like. Are you engaged? Do you care about your followers? Do you care about your customers and deal you know? Are you engaging that way? Are you doing it for the rise near following? Are you doing it for the sale? Are you doing? Are you doing it because this? Just feel so right to you know. Yeah while you're on that topic, too. Because so cool that you grew organically because. I mean it's such an easily marketable product, but also like how how do you stand out amongst your competitors are? There's other planner companies out there. So what's your differentiating factor with your product? So at the beginning? We were the only ones pretty much doing what we did, so we stood out really quick, and it's almost like I. Always say like it was like. Like when I had my first when I said WHO's very well behaved typical. I am such a good mom. And then my daughter came a second, and she is like great, but she's you know totally like wild spirit and I'm like oh my gosh. I need to to work at this little more. So when we did when all of a sudden you're like It's growing and you're thinking. Oh, my gosh is great. People are just listening, and then all of a sudden when you're onto something, people and other brands and other companies go. They're onto something I. Think I'm going to try that, too. And then what you were doing so authentically is being duplicated right so. So what we have always done I think and even back in the scrapbooking and paper. Crafting days was just advice. My mom gave me is just really don't worry too much about what other people are doing. Find out what you uniquely do. What is it that your company or your brand do what do you? How do you stand out and for US There's a lot of people who have high end stationary and people. People that are saying a professional and I want it to look like this or I. Don't like this about your as well. This is who we are. We are colorful and fun and were affordable. We have a disc bound system where you can change things in and out, and those are some things honestly and with the brand that will turn people off when you really claim like who you are. Some people are going to say. Well, I. Don't know but I. don't like that well, but this is who we are when you can really find that those are the things that just kind of narrowed down, and you nail it down so much that these are the things that make us unique, and so for us. We embraced all of that. That is who we are fun and colorful, positive and an interchangeable, and all these things about the product and about our messaging. That's what we focused on, and I think even especially going forward when it becomes harder and you. Maybe at this point, we're going like you see a slowing in not just gaining followers as fast when you get up high. And there's more people in the space so for us it's how can we find? What, we, what is it that we offer? That's unique whether it's the message product. And, you kind of have those pillars of our being authentic. Is it something that's different or are we just white noise in the space? Should we be making a change? We be pivoting. Right now do. Is there something we need to be doing to be more aware of the surroundings of the economy of this of society so You're constantly looking for you have to just be aware. Of who you are where you're going and not being paying too much attention to. The competitors and the people aside. It's really hard though it's hard to do because you find yourself looking. They're doing so good over there. Maybe I should change and go that way so knowing who you are is a huge part of that success for us. And, I love how you really made an emphasis on. Being okay with not being a good fit for everyone, and you know we talk about this even on social media. How you know people always give us questions on. You know my Gosh I I lost if I don't post for three days. I'll lose one hundred followers well if those people want on, follow you because you haven't posted three days. They're not your people. Like they were never people anyway, so I love that you have you have a focus and you understand your branch so well. The you know who you're catering to, and also you mentioned pivoting when you need to because. You know I think that people get so focused on the end goal, and if it's not if it doesn't turn out exactly how they anticipated that it would be, they give up right, so I think that's I. Love that so much and it kind of brings me to my next question on. The hardships entrepreneurship because I think that when people look from the outside, they see this beautiful brand that you've built a successful mom who's who's doing it all, but it takes so much work and behind the scenes that the people don't see. Can you walk us through some of those hardships that you faced in how you've kind of gotten through them? Oh yeah and I think. I'm so glad you brought that up because you especially on social media, people will see their, so they'll say. Where were you because I'm pretty active on my own, and then also I with the happy planner, but it like where were you? We Miss John there. I'm like you guys like if I would have shown. What I was doing for the past seven days, it was get up in the morning. Go to work. Stay there till seven o'clock have like meetings altay come home barely figure how I'm going to get the door dash before I wanna fall asleep, and then you know over it over and over again and I'm like it's not glamorous. It's hard There's a lot that goes into it. You know and you have to love it if you are somebody who has your own business or your own brand? You have to love it because it is not I mean I would say. Ninety, eight percent of it's not glamorous, but it's rewarding. You know it's something that you love, but you're GONNA have failures. You can't be afraid to work hard and fail. Because, you're GONNA. Do both of those all the time? And you know and learning from your from your failures for me. It's like you know we've had products that the ones that you've mentioned like happy planner that quadrupled the size of our business in the matter of two years But in the in between, and we had already had like a pretty successful company, and we were like well, but what you don't see, are all of the things where you come out with the product and you're like that's a dog. You Know Kate next. What do we? Can we learn from that? You know that's what you can't. You can't shy away from it, but nobody wants to see that nobody, but those are the lessons. Are you know what you're seeing? When when you see the happy planner is our success of you know Gosh over twenty we did that. It was fifteen years. I think into the our business before we hit that like Grand Slam, we'd had several. You know that was. This product was a triple. This one was a strikeout. This one was a base hit. And then you know, we never know we not. Even we're not even. Promise that we were going to have that big of a success that we just kept going and every time we did we learned something like Oh we didn't do. The packaging wasn't right or you know. Maybe we rent to too early into that trend, or maybe we didn't research it enough or maybe we learned something every time but I mean we've had. We've had product failures. We've had really difficult times in the economy I've been around here through September eleventh through the two thousand eight crash where the business was doing great, and then all of a sudden we've had were having to like have layoffs and figure out how to make the hard decisions. To keep your business healthy and around and surviving, and that's really hard. I mean that's something that right now we're going through. You know we have. Luckily we've got a great basin. We've had a very successful business, but this is a gut punch, and for a healthy business like ours. This has been really difficult and I can only imagine if you're struggling before this, but you just have to figure out you. It's almost like a business as almost like being a parent. You've got to make those tough decisions. Decisions you know that not everyone's going to understand. That's going to be hard. It's going to keep you up at night. and those those you don't see those on social media. No one's sharing like we had to really hard today and or have been meetings all day, and if they are, they're showing you the picture of themselves looking really cute, and you know here I am with my thing and it's. It's just not always like that victims hardly ever like that, so I think it's sometimes i. I've shared lots more real version especially on my own personal social media on instagram. Especially because I, think we do a disservice to. Everybody but to women's in general specifically where it's like if you're trying to be an inspiration and trying to share with other women, this is what if I can, we can all be here for each other. You, know in business, and this is how we can succeed. We are doing a disservice if we are just showing what our lives really never looked like And how how then do those? How'd you push through? How do you push through at the worst times for people that are listening that are entrepreneurs have launched their business or not seeing success right away. Like what have you learned to cut has kept you going. I think i. mean this sounds like something that my husband would go. No, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it because he's. My husband was our CFO CEO and. But for me, I, it's so much into an instinct. And then pushed through because I believe in my instinct very strongly. There's a thing like I feel like you know for us. We were very fortunate that the business that we started stayed healthy, and was viable forever, however I. Kind of look at our product launches in our product releases and different product types almost like many businesses, because there comes a time when you know this isn't working, you know there comes a time when you're like. We just need to let this keep going. We need to work at market. We need and you just you kind of. If you're really being honest with yourself, you know when it's like am I pushing too hard for something. That's not really making. Any headway or do I just need to keep working harder and I feel like You know if we ask ourselves how we done everything. HAVE WE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION? That's what I think. We need to kind of listeners, though because I just feel like if you are sitting here like. With a struggling business, let's say whether it's from the economy or just like I'm just not going anywhere It's hard because some people will say just keep going. Just keep going all the time. I don't think you should do that all the time. Sometimes you want maybe need to move onto. Something different doesn't mean you're not going to be. In business or start your own company, or but maybe this, isn't it? Maybe it is? Maybe you're just sitting there going. You know what this is going to be tough times, but I believe in this business i. know we have and we're going to keep going, so you kind of have to listen to that. You know you're got to say. Where are you? Are you? You know? Do I need to keep pushing through this, or is there something else that I need to be? Doing are exploring. It's such a weird time to because with everything going on I. Mean People are obviously doing less news less really to plan but I think there's still an opportunity and it's great that the product isn't just a manner planning out your daily activities that can also be used for intentional set goal setting in just writing down thoughts that you have journaling so I love that it's it's I town that regard Have you guys thought of ways to during this tough time? Kind of still sell your product in different ways or maybe thinking about different product lunches. Were you know what kind of has been brewing in the last few weeks, so it's like a perfect example of. Of evolving and pivoting right so like. Yes, when you're when we're looking at people that are planning your days just filled. My days were just like I couldn't even have the whole damn thinking. How tiny can I right because there's so much going on, but you know one of the other things we have in our product, minus positively journaling and guided journals, and then when you you know for us, it would be so tone deaf to be talking. Talking about we know you're busy. Let's just talk about busy busy busy schedule Hustle. Let's go because this is not the time for that, so we had to look at. What do we have in? You know in our offering. And what do we have What do we think is important or is there something else we can offer so for us? you know slowing down journaling 'cause for me. It's all about putting the pen to paper. I Love I love my. Technology and I. On my computer as well, but there's something to me about writing stuff down whether it's my schedule and prioritizing key efficient or whether it's like you know just journaling what I'm grateful for writing that down I did a whole like wellness like year in two thousand eighteen, where every single day for the entire year I journal. Like what am I feeling I thought it was going to be like more. Of a fitness thinks I like. My cholesterol is high, and I needed to lose weight, and I was going to do all these things I'm going to travel the stuff and what it became was. Oh my gosh, I'm realizing that I'm tagging my emotions now like when I would write things down the journaling became the biggest part for me is what I was feeling like I was really I felt very marginalized that meeting today, and I came home, and I think like I was going into hibernation. You know and I was angry and I was, but I was identifying my feelings. Why was I instead of just going like writing down my food log? You know it's like it wasn't helpful for me. I. Know How to eat healthy. But to realize that when I feel angry, I don't know what to do with those feelings and to eat them you know, or and I'm like an eye stuff them and I. Try and do anything in Canton. and that was like a realization for me, so we're kind of leaning into that and saying hey, right now when you're stressed or you're afraid or whatever it is that you're going through. What can you lean into? And how can you get in touch with your feelings whether it's do journaling or if you really do maybe you're a mom who is trying to work fulltime at home and also. Also home school your kids to the distance learning the. Maybe you need to be really efficient, so you need to you know. What is it that you need and listening to that? Do you need to be productive? Do you need to be kind of moving a little more inward, and then just writing it down and really getting out of your head and onto paper, so you can help process it. Yeah I need to start journaling. That is something that. I know he's for the whole year. Did you notice that it had a huge impact on? It changed the way I thought it totally and I'm the same way because I'm like I'm so famous for starting a journal. And then it's really good for like a couple weeks, and then it's empty, and I keep it and all these like you know journals that have a little bit done in the beginning, and then like I wish I could combine them all. And are they now? It's like so I just said I have never made like a year long commitment to myself I. Will I mean I will do anything for my kids. My husband, my family, my, you know the team of me me and my big ideas, but for me. It'd be like I'm always the first one to get shoved off the list and so I, said I need I was stressed because just like what you were saying. Our business was. Wildly successful that year, and the year before that but I was so stressed out. Because when you quadruple the size of your company, and you're trying to do the same things that you did before scaling it and learning how to do that so quickly is really stressful for a for a creative person who likes to do things like. As I'm inspired. And so. So dealing with that was huge, so all of these things that I saw which were gaining weight having high cholesterol, not sleeping at night, having hiring Zaidi I was thinking, it was because I'm out of shape or this and I didn't really realize accepted the journaling. which that's not what I started to do. That it was more than just that and so this journaling process just gave me. Such clarity and insight into my own feelings that I had no idea and I don't think if I if I just tried to do that at the very beginning for just a little bit I, don't think I would have. Gotten as deep because like doing it every single year someday the destroy today sucked. He knows the worst day ever and I didn't know how to see it through, but then as I got used to journaling just as an exercise every day. I learned to go. You know to just kind of. I guess like look a little deeper. Really. Shed light on stuff that I had no idea I was looking for. I feel like now. I'M GONNA. Go buy one of your journals because I'm so inspired by that by just what you said and I think that I'm someone that just keeps everything in my head and I talked to myself all day every day just. All the things that have to do all the things that should you know that are behind me? That I should have done yesterday it's that's great. I love that with you. You know you don't realize that when you're not like kind of emptying out. It's like for me I was not able to. I was not able to like think of I was kind of creatively blocked, and then I was like even motion. Lee blocked and they just didn't realize because I'm the same. I am an over thinker. I like I process everything and I just I kinda hold onto it and I get very wrapped up in my own head, and so it was just almost like an emptying of it and helps me sleep. Helped me do all that stuff, so my guys. I think you'll love it. Okay. I'm sold. journaling. Borsch, now let's talk a little bit about living intentionally, which is very much related to what we're talking about now, bite. What does it mean for you to live intentionally? And how can people cultivate a more meaningful life? Because obviously you found your passion, you work really hard at you. Know keeping your mind rate, and it seems like you're a very self, reflective person, but how how have you gotten there? I think. I've always been somebody who really likes. Growing looking inside I ask a Lotta questions of myself and. Other people like I. Try and tell my husband like I'm not really trying to psychoanalyze you. Even I would love to just get into everybody's head, but I think that there's so much we can learn. And one of the things that I have learned just by trying to grow as a person and being teachable. Has Been You. Know there's nobody in the world that is going to take charge of my life, my happiness, the things that I want that me. Matt what happens around me it doesn't you know we can all we can all be complaining about what's happening in the world with your job with your relationship, but when it really comes down to it, you're the one that's responsible for what it is. You want in your life and how happy you are. And so for me, it started with number one. I needed to. Learn how to love myself because I didn't love and accept yourself believe you're worthy of all those things, and then once you believe that those things started kind of coming into my life and a realize it's like you know. That was something that I had to really focus on. I had to work on with myself I am. We're a project, so if you go out there, and you really want a job, or you really want to start a business, or you want a relationship. You have to almost I think. Go for the life that you want with that same passion and I mean for me. It's just been about really starting to identify. What is it that you want? What is it that makes you happy? And how do you need to get that? I think that's why I'm a planner at heart, because living intentionally as really planning, you're trying to like you have to identify something first and then figure out how you're going to get it right, so it's like for me. Identifying. What makes me happy? What the name of our podcast plan? Happy Life at the Tagline for our company. Or for the for the happy planner, because really feel like you know if if for me, I need to identify what it is, that makes me happy right, and so I'm not somebody who is an Adrenalin Junkie I'm not someone who needs a lot of activity in my life, I need I need serenity a need. Calm I need a place to be creative I want to go travel I want to be with my family so when I. Start to really identify Granular Li, like what it is, that makes me happy and what I want I can easily say you know okay well. Then I am intentionally going to make the choices that get me closer to those things that I want and. It's really a responsibility. You know it's really taking responsibility for For the actions that we take and you know and I think it's empowering I actually feel like instead of going like Oh. My Gosh I'm responsible for all of these things in my life and no one's going to do about me that makes me. I think it just gives it gives me the power back to say you know. Stuff can happen all around me. Crap can just be going on like everywhere and internally I can live intentionally with what makes me happy, which what? And I can be. Responsible for especially this stuff that's going on in my head. You know so setting intentions of you know whether it's daily whether it's setting an intention for a year or whenever you're feeling like you need a little more clarity into. What am I working for I think it's a really powerful thing to do and I know sometimes when things get more popularity. They gained that whole like people in Oh. Yeah, okay. Setting intentions are doing all this, and it sounds a little Wu, and all that and I'm like it, but it really really makes a difference in how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make yeah, and it's all it all goes back to taking accountability, right and totally nine I. always talk about this on the podcast where a lot of people struggle with that I. Think they kind of have this. Poor me, mentality or you know I could never accomplish that I'm not ex- enough. I'm not educated. Enough I'm not. You know fast enough smart enough pretty enough whatever it is, and I just do I. Hope that if pe- when people listen to this episode, they really if they take anything from it. I really hope that they listen to what you just said. Because it's so powerful, that's such a like. I can't I've had a lot of things. People will ask me like well. Of course, it's easy for you to be happy because where you are today, you know and I said, but but here's what you don't understand is that? The reason I'm happy is not because I have all the things that I have the reason I have all the things that I have is because a happy positive person who believes that I have. that. What happens in my life is a result of you know of the way that I go about it and what I believe I deserve and how and then I can have those things I'm happy. And I'm positive period. Doesn't necessarily. Happy happy I just mean like I'm going to be content and positive and optimistic in my life. No matter what is going on and I have lived through a lot of things I've had like I said I shared with you. Guys had some traumatic things in my childhood that have happened I was had a child eighteen I had a lot of money issues. I'm growing up. I was in an abusive relationship with physically and mentally, and there's a have been drug abuse them I mean lots of things that I've had to deal with and. I could very easily any of those instances been. Why did this happen to me? I could never start a business because I don't have a college education and they don't have any money, and they don't have this and you know. What will people think of me and you know a? Growing and believing that you can do something, no matter what like having that resilience and having that. Like I'm just going to figure it out like I said I. It pretty much anything now I'm probably going to be more of a of a jack-of-all-trades master of none but that's okay. That's who I am, and that's really has gotten me where I'm at, but yeah. I just I think if anything I totally agree with you. If I share anything, it would be that no matter what your circumstances are in life. I think optimism and. And believing that no matter what happens to you, you will get through this, and you make something of yourself, and you can get the things that you want in life If you know if you're working, you work hard. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to be teachable if to learn to be confident, but all those things are things you can control. And it doesn't really matter what your circumstances are. So that would be something I mean. Yes. I love the product. Yes, I love our brand. Yes, I love all these other things, but that's just something that I think everyone can take with them throughout their lives. Such great life advice, and it's so true I feel like there's been looking back and reflecting on my own experiences to and the hardships that you know everyone has different forms of adversity, but how you respond and react to that is I think all the difference and I think it was a murray furlough that said everything is figure out. That just. When you said that because it's true like if you have that drive and that hustle enough to do what it is that you WanNa, do you can figure that all out and I think Alex also reiterated several times. There's this concept of just start now. Figure everything else out along the way as you go. Otherwise, you're never gonNA start. You're never going to achieve those goals but in terms of goal, setting and just organizational tips. I mean I feel like the ideal buyer of the happy planner is a very organized individual, or maybe they're aspiring to be more organized. So what are some good organizational tips just in general that people can start practicing and then apply to the happy planner. And I am not a naturally organized person. At like what you see back there on this video that we're recording over is not what it normally looks like I'm a creative person so I'm very like. Just kind of scattered and I will follow an idea like if I have an idea, I'm like I'm down that rabbit hole and. There's a chaos and mastic usually follows so being organized and using happy planner and using organizational tools is actually been essential for me to be like a productive society member of society or running a business, so one of my favorite tools and I think we kind of alluded to this a little earlier was getting things out of your head in getting him down I use a master What I call him Master Action Item List, so it doesn't matter if like you are thinking of I've gotTa. GotTa do cupcakes the Kids School I've got empty. The dishwasher I have a huge project that I'm working on. That's do every little thing. Take space up in your head and It doesn't really you know you're not really. They all have the same weight, so you're thinking constantly of the Dishwasher, the cupcakes and all of these things and you don't have the space to really think about Give yourself like. Hey, now. I'm really focusing on the project because there's so much stuff spinning in your head. And, so I think David Allen I think is his name he said you're. You're headed for having ideas, not storing them so like for me. It's like Oh, my gosh, that is so perfect so I take and had this one massive list actually I have to, but it's ones home in one's work, but usually for most people one will do and. If everything that comes out of my head is something that I have to do if it's an action item. I put it on my list and then I work from that list. Would plan my weeks when I plan my days, so I look at Monday and I think okay. I've got five meetings not lot. Stuff's going to be coming off that to do list, but on Tuesday I have one meeting in the morning and I had the whole day that I. have so I'll go off of my master list and then start working from there. I'M NOT GONNA forget my tasks that way. It's not going to be like oh shoot cupcake sting it. You have your your things that have due dates and everything so when I'm working from it I don't have fifteen sticky notes everywhere and a piece of paper that I wrote over there. That I got lost cause. I left it in my car and you're constantly then figuring out. How do I remember where it was that thing so keeping everything kind of in one place has been a big tip for me. the second organizational tip that I use I plan every Sunday I plan my week out every Sunday so or whatever the day before the start of week.' In for me. Mondays the start, so I sit down I. Take a look at what are all of the to the must do's appointments. The the deadlines that have to happen that week and get all those things in there and I. I plan everything out from date night with my husband every week. we're putting that in their first wins the time that I need one of my GonNa. Go exercise. When am I going to those put in appointments, and then I start to fill in again with things from that master to do. If I don't do that, then you know, there's things that come up and they're just time. Thief's and they come in to take in all of a sudden. You look and you've spent. Monday and you're thinking I've done nothing you know. It could be a week and you're going like shoot. There's nothing off my list. conversely you can take a look at that, and if you've been really productive, there've been times. I had no idea I could get that much done. So those are two tips for me to stay on and just to contend me. Being organized means being productive, because if I'm not productive, my stuff's all over the place. I get very easily overwhelmed, and that is not a good place for me to be. I was GONNA ask as well with with your master. Master list you add everything from like emptying the dishwasher doing laundry like every task so usually I have like if those are ongoing I will have just started doing this, which helped a lot, but all I kind of assign like if something that occurs every week for me I have a list. That's basically recurring tasks, so if you're if it's a cleaning thing, it's like an you know you've got changes sheets. You know the bathrooms or whatever I've got empty Roomba. because. Just, all those little things that are like take the trash out. Those are of things that I put off to the side which are more recurring tasks. And then when I sit down. Unday, I think you know empty room by the today's the in the evenings and do my meal planning here and those things happen all the time. The the Master List for me is you know the things that are their projects or their like like for me for my work one. It's like every time like I need to talk to him about this Call up this person and make sure I return this thing and check out on. All of the let's marketing meetings scheduled out. Make sure to reach out and so then I can cross them off. On Cross them off. And then when they're done, they're done, and of course you know once it gets to about halfway marked off at create a new list because it's prettier. And I like doing that, but yeah, the reoccurred things I keep separately. Of It, so we're GONNA. Get this all in. Your home about really what you're saying is it comes down to time management skills right, and yes, you know like you said there are some days ago by and I'm like. How did I just spent two hours scrolling through instagram? Checking emails bearing bearing myself in emails that really don't I don't need to get back to these people right away and you self reflect and go like that I see I'm busy, but to hours of that time was wasted. Time management is huge, and that was another thing that I uncovered in my memorabilia box that said think I was in like fourth grade and the teacher says like Stephanie needs to learn time management. Because it is true, because I do the same thing and I feel like there's so many times when people say I just don't have enough time and I'm thinking i. just spent four hours binge-watching. Whatever I. We. Do have the time and that's okay. If you're going, you know what I'm going to. It's going to be a binge party like I am going to be watching and It's fine but I think we need to be aware like you don't WanNa miss out on the things that you either want to be doing our need to be doing because you're not managing your time well and like I said it's a constant struggle. This is going to be something that I'm GonNa be. Be doing for my whole life. Because you know because I'm just not naturally inclined to be that way even, but it's a habit you know, and it's easier for me now, but managing your time well and scheduling it out is is a habit that we form you know, and it's just like it just becomes easier and then yeah, you find him. There's nothing to me like when I look at a list I'm like. Oh, my gosh look! How productive I was this week! That is such a good feeling when you even when you finish the day, and you're like man I was on point today like I knocked this off the list and I. Did this and you just feel good? There's just this feeling it brings. There's something about they say like an actual like I don't know what gets release, dopamine, or whatever that when you cross things off your list. That, yes, go. It is what? What are some other resources that you? You've enjoyed yourself or that? You would recommend to listeners in terms of time, management or building, good habits, organizational tools and practices. I think that like to meet. Okay decluttering. Making sure that you like you don't have because again. The more clutter at the worst and I know they say you know a messy desk or whatever they say, but the MESSI dozen. Beans or whatever and it is, but it's probably one who's just driving themselves crazy 'cause they can't find anything so developing somewhat of. Of A protocol for how you're GONNA. Plan your weeks and then also. One of the things I don't know if it's not really a resource, but it's something that I learned that. I kind of tend to first thing in the morning. I want to like answer all like you're saying I. Want to answer all my emails, and then of course I go down. Somebody's asking you know unsubscribe to all these things now and then I started subscribing, and then I go down, and so somebody told me to block off your days and at the beginning. Do the most important thing for you that you need to. To get done in the morning or whenever it is that you work I work best in the morning and freshest van, and then about three o'clock, I'm looking for anything else. I'm looking for something to snack on or any distraction and it, but some people are not also if you're like going, this is when I do my best work. Then make sure you can identify those times because you're gonNA. Find that you have. You're going to get more done. You'RE GONNA feel more efficient more. More productive and I think that's going to help I. Definitely, figure think that if you can figure out how technology and productivity work for you. I am kind of a hybrid between outlook and all of the technology that we can't. We have that really does keep us I've got when I have meetings. All my stuff is stored. I, don't WanNa. Right down the zoom. Call Identification Number and the password, and all these things you know, that's all stored in my outlook and I have a really good relationship between paper planning and my tech, you know. And then but I have a process every time I have like a nice system. I think I think that works I've been I've used a lot of productivity tools into honest with you. Nothing's really kept me more productive than just keeping it simple and planning things out and getting stuff done I mean it. It starts off great, but then it's just something else for me to. Keep track of so having something just right in my face whether it's my outlook, calendar or or my paper planner I just like I, said I've tried I've tried them all I've tried. And I know they were really well for some people, but for me it's just all about keeping it really simple and just getting stuff done. Yeah, and you know what I love the realness because we get questions, sometimes of like. How do you have a business and you work fulltime in your mind like? How do you do all the things? And I always kind of self reflect in its and I always think you know. You make time for what's important to you. That's the bottom line. We all have twenty four hours a day. I think that that hustle mentality isn't always helpful and isn't always positive, but at the same time if you have something that you want to accomplish. You just have to do it. You have to figure it out and do it. That's the bottom line. So Yeah? I love what you said on that. You know what I'd like to ask you Stephanie. If there's some sort of book or podcast or resource that you'd recommend for our followers, I don't know if you have any in mind that something that is is really impacted you in some way. Yes, so two different two different things so a book that basically just changed my life completely were was the gifts of imperfection by Bernard Brown. And it was one of those things where I just realized I don't have to be perfect I'm worthy of just the way I am, and that just really kind of just her whole. I love her so much that book. When I started to believe those things about myself, things change. They think changed in my life. They changed in my business That's why I think that no matter what you're looking at doing that. Inner work is I. Don't don't try and like. Get the promotion or getting the relationship, because you think that's GonNa make you more successful or happier, or whatever, because if you're not okay with that first step I it's all going to be empty. You know you're going to get the promotion, but it's not gonNA. Feel as great as you thought it was. Because you're. There's there's that whole in there that you're trying to fill so. That personally was amazing for me and then I love how I built this by Cairo's and. The podcast and for business. That's something that I listened to and I just. If, you're ever wanting to start a business and you think well I don't fit the typical either entrepreneur or business owner, or whatever I don't fit that mold listen to those stories there from every walk of life and every kind of story. It's so empowering to listen to them, but it's also really interesting to see how some of those people dealt with you know the setbacks, and how they how they innovated, and how they funded their businesses, and it's really interesting, and so, and they've covered just about like every aspect of business so I love those, too. Such third-rate episode actually heard how I built. This I've never listened to it, but I've heard it is great good, so that'll be one that'll that'll be added to my podcast list. podcasts our life right now in quarantine.

A Tale To Warm The Cockles Of Your Heart
"We drove about an hour south to visit the Manchester Research Station where Jodi Tuft and her colleagues are based for the untrained eye. Us is just a random collection of buildings that a federal facility tucked away in Manchester Washington. Which is a semi rural area? Not too far from Seattle but really this is the heart of where shellfish research and restoration happens in puget sound. We walked into one of the buildings with Jodi and her colleagues Stewart. Disease them cockles. Right now Stewart is going to open up this kind of funky basket jovic purse. What's going on here so? Yeah these are a handful of cockles. That are roughly one to five millimeters and look like tiny little pebbles. Yes these were from spawns. That happened in early summer. June baby cockles are adorable but it turns out. They're not that easy. To produce at least in a federal research facility has robin found out when she tried to find examples of research on local cockles. Nobody had ever tried to breed them. We have some magicians on staff here. Who are really good at breeding shellfish and so we collected some cockles. Brought them back here. Nothing happened there was no magic. There was wonderful people doing great work and just a whole bunch of cockles sitting in buckets of water and they were not making any debacles. But even before. Jody and the team tried to get the cockles to spawn. They had to make sure they had healthy. Cockles and Vivian. Says that wasn't so easy. Either because some of the cockles had cockle cancer and they determined that they had a communicable cancer neoplasia. So they could all be brought into the hatchery right away. So they had to be quarantined for two weeks in a lab about fifty miles away and kept in a each individual in a separate bucket while they were tested for neo plays see even shellfish have to be quarantined. We really are all in this together. After quarantine the cockles had to be tested to see if they were sick sound familiar or generally there were enough tests but it turns out when you test a cockle for cancer. Sometimes the stress makes them spontaneously released all their spawn in a last ditch attempt to leave a baby cockle behind. And we certainly concerns that we were GONNA do a great job screening for Neo pleasure and then we will have spawned Oliver Cockles. And then that would be that because once a cockle spoons it takes months before it's ready to make babies again. Luckily the cockles did not shoot their load and that was in part because the team had another magician on staff with a very gentle touch to get the blood. They needed for their cancer tests. She was kind of kind of got the nickname the the cockle vampire because she was so good at drawing blood. After the cockle vampire had done her thing all but five of the cockles tested clean which left Jodi and her team with thirty cockles to make babies from this was their brood stock and then the fun really began so we tried. The first time around failed tried again failed. Maybe we could call it. We learned not failed but yeah we failed. They didn't produce anything and then the third time around. We brought them in and use a technique. That's pretty common. And other kinds of production of shellfish other commercial techniques and injected them with Serotonin and they they were off to the races and this also took a gentle touch because the scientists had to inject each cockle by hand in the gonads with a personal shot of Serotonin the Cocco Viagra test to make things even more interesting. Jody and the team had to set up a group sex situation because cockles have a tendency to fertilize themselves. It's actually called selling so. Yeah so the the the cell thing which your face is not making it easy for me to laugh but you know we're professionals here. We are such professionals that we are going to say it again. Just for the GIGGLES. When a cockle does the baby making thing by itself that's called self ing And that's because cockles are actually hermaphrodites. The same animal can be at different times either male or female so if a cockle is alone and it releases eggs than it can release sperm next and fertilize its own offspring. So the thing that comes from the Hem afforded expanding of the cockatiels also great sentenced to get to say is it can be a challenge for maintaining genetic diversity if a cuckold creates thousands of baby cockles. And they're all exactly the same genetically. That would not be a good thing as jody. Says there'd be basically no genetic diversity so with the group sex tank and the cocoa Viagra injections the setting was finally right and the result was cockle. Babies about a million baby cockles. Many of which are out with partners out squamish now growing bigger. Bigger bigger the took all those cockles and put them out in the shallow water of the sound in a floppy an acronym for floating up Weller System. It's sort of like a nursery for clams that is outside so there's water flowing through twenty four seven so they have food all the time and oxygen all the time and that's where they are right now once the baby. Coco's get to about the size of a quarter they can start living where. Coco's belong in the INTERTIDAL zone. We thaw that. They would have been ready by now but they're growing very slowly. There's not that much food in the water right now. Although they're not dying they're just kind of waiting waiting for spring waiting for the big phytoplankton bloom and I think they're really going to start to grow soon. Some of the cockles they raised. Were extra tiny stragglers. Those were the ones that Jodi and Stewart had in the building to show us. We wanted to see them jump. Coco's don't do anything on demand. Apparently okay let's see. Oh Yeah I just I don't. They're not opening and just the shells. The shells are beautiful and I have a whole bucket of shells that the I will show you in a bit because as exciting as You know five millimeter baby cockle is it's not exactly a meals worth now. We only looking at it. You can imagine what they'll look like when they're big they're miniature version. I mean the crazy thing about looking under a microscope is they. Do Look back at dinner. No one's really fun to see. Miniscule baby cockles under the microscope but we really wanted to know was. When will they be ready to eat? So that's the question we keep asking are. Biologists are constantly hearing from us. So when will they be ready? When will they be ready because people talk care about like medicine in terms of food as medicine and Sometimes people say I need to feed my Indian and it's that old school Indian ancestor piece inside you. That really needs these foods. These sovereign foods that we've had since time immemorial to last time I had cockles was about three months ago but that it had been about two years because I just don't Wanna eat them before we can save them. But we're had to have some gotta feed Indian sometimes

War Two on in New Orleans so my cousin Frederick Weller really good theater actor and really good actor twos my cousin a Following my footsteps I was always in New Orleans. I just got back from New Orleans and I'm in New Orleans a lot so no one is more of a home to me anyplace anyplace because anytime we're downtime. We're New Orleans with alcohol's anti cousins. Whatever that's where they really with the families of when when did when did all of this become interesting to you? I mean honestly looking through the things you've studied and and the fact that you do a little bit of everything it's it frankly it's overwhelming how much you know and how much you've done but for you as a kid what we did one come. I know I always wanted to be miles Davis worse things. Well you look when Whiplash K.. Two movies came out one year. That just reduced me to ashish. Cash and Was Whiplash and I went to North Texas state always with the four o'clock five o'clock bands. There's like six bands the you you had to really fight to get in them. Most kids could not get into one o'clock band birth. You know Lou Marini in in Bones Bologne all these guys that you see on Leno and whoever back and and just to be clear North Texas state which was then called universal. You know now it's called University of North Texas. Then it was called north state. Okay but Leon Breeden is the first this guy to ever set up a contemporary music school. Like if you're going to study music at judo places before Berkeley School Music Boston Point Four. Miami's emmys drawl is amazing places. The North Texas state was it. You need every band or was You know with through through there to pick up musicians for the summer. Yes showing that Jesse though as we were coming over today just so people understand that that was like the Nape Lou ultra of of jazz acid usually. Yeah that was the ultra of jazz education. That was that was a cynical on non converged and so I have no more Latin at in any case. That's why I went. I wanted to be and I saw whiplash is it that was me. You know you know it wasn't necessarily unburdened but it was his unfurling who in one o'clock weller. Nation forty eight two three four bone. CUT IT Jesse in out and finally after that I think Mike Okay. I'm playing and doing it in a plan doing it. But do I want to go through this for the rest of my frigging life before nine dollars and change and then I realize I'm not going to be miles Davis. What else do the only thing I did was act so I am in the Theater Department Kinda as a loose goose thing not to go to Vietnam so so when I when I saw whiplash and how terrifying that somebody called neponset route? They made a movie about going to jazz school. It certainly sounds sounds like you and I go. Look there's no one who's GonNa make a movie about going to music school anywhere particularly contemporary music. That's going to get it. And then I saw that movie and has reduced as right. I was just reduced to nothing and then the thing that kicked it is a month later. A buddy of mine calls me and says hey man there's a movie out that will really nail you. I've already seen it whiplash. She goes no no no. I'm not talking about that. It's about dignity after action hero finding dignity after action hero. It's really about the actor but it's about you do what does that Birdman. So then I go see Birdman and that just brought me to the end. I thought God God bless you Michael Keaton speaking for you know the five of us who have said no part three right which he I did and I did and maybe some other people did because we wanted to find the other way and that movie just it made me laugh and cry at the same time so two movies one year. Just reduce me man. You know and you you. Somebody's GonNa come up until you that. Hey this is a movie about your life. No Oh it's not they don't know what it is Robo Cop and life after robocop. Yes yes they do. Somebody knows it is a music school. Yeah so that's that's what I want to be. Miles Davis and I wasn't miles Davis so they're not going to be an actor and I never get it I was I was hitchhiking being down also and my father had left.

Sea mentioned. You mentioned Mike Nichols Mike. Nicholls apparently was Godfather of cinema. So many people who worked for him You know like a proselytizer.

I mean Iraq on tour and quick A one liner you know one liner quake. But I guess he was. I mean He. I was doing a film shakedown with. Sam Elliott. What are the last New York action in films?

Bergman has you know they call seventh seal. You know it's overrated. It's like hype and spend Nichols this is like who cares. It's static tableaux photography with no particular invention. I said well I disagree. I mean I think that you know this is the post second wave of feminism.

"Hi I'm Leonard Maltin Jessie Nelson. And you're listening to Maltin on movies and I'm very pleased to say that our guest today is actor director musician scholar teacher polymath and so much more Peter Weller. How are you Leonard? How are you just fine? We are fine to have you here. I am happy to be here in particularly with like a fan. One of yours for a while now and More intelligent commentator or assessor Don't think I could find so I'm happy to be here. That's it's very kind of you. Thank you flattery will get you everywhere. I I missed a chance to interview you in Nineteen eighty-seven when a little film you'd made call Robocop. Oh Cop came out but I asked a stringer for entertainment. Tonight was in New York where you were at the time to ask my questions for me that I could put into this piece about robocop and about the fact that you fashioned your physical movements in that movie after the actor Nikolai like Cherkasov from Ivan. The terrible part to psycho wait a minute. There's a big mainstream Hollywood movie influenced by a Russian Russian classic and then I found there was a second Russian classic so excited knocking over. And then I found there was a second Russian classic evoked by a film that some and that was the untouchables which Brian depalma staged a sort of a replay of the Odessa steps. Sequence from Potemkin. It's like wow I got a piece I got a story for my TV show for my very mainstream TV show and got all that on the air including you talk a lot of people. Don't I don't know who Eisenstein is though and the sad thing is what I find sad. I just gave a paper on it. At the Sixteenth Century Society is that you can jump into film schools until Zilkha schools. Now and you can go right into say postmodern contemporary film. And you don't have to know who is is is this a renoir. Those guys the guys that I see you hit the floor as an actor or director particularly as a theatre actor or a fan of film in the sixty seventies eighties. You have to look at those movies. Were the cornerstone of the whole art. Nowadays you can go no man. You know what I WANNA do. I WANNA study Uh You know Jim Jarmusch. That's not to take anything with him but you can't start with him now. It's the idea might my dad. There's a quote that swell misquote misquote. But essentially goes around on the Internet where he says if your film education begins and ends at Star Wars than a severely handicapped and that is like say not in any way disrespecting star wars and everything it's done but to me when I meet someone and they tell me they love film and I say okay like what and they list off the avengers films and I get nothing against any of those but it's the idea to me if you love something. Don't you WanNa Watch and consume as much much as possible so that you have a million different Ideas and examples exciting Jesse particularly if you'RE A director. My dilemma and I direct a lot of high end television now. It's have a Lotta Fun because you get you get three weeks to hit a home. Run home run but at the same time I run into directors in actually directors and photography. And I it's so forth who don't have a language for it so subsequently currently the I came up with a couple of amazing people who schooled me and one of them was Mike Nicholls Mike Nichols would bring up a subject. Okay Very Funny Guy. But also various serve guy and he would say you know Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. I said well I don't know that movie and he goes okay. Weller we will. Oh not discuss for film noir again and he must have done that fifteen sixteen times in my life right and I would go go. Wow I mean how could I see Film Noir when I'm looking at you know Out of the past you know when I haven't seen any of these people started subsequently directing and you go okay when a hinge that means like walked into the room and reveal Leonard. Here comes Jesse's as you walk through the room and you just stay on her. And you've that's a William Wyler technique that he did over and over and over and over again and then go dark. You know bumps it from the With the new the new wave and doesn't like many times he's hinging people everywhere so just discussing this with the with the director Qatar via had no idea that these hint shots are that old. You know that's all you think. This is all a product of postmodern DOC simmers. So it's the vocabulary got the story. Yes that these films give you. But it's the film vocabulary and how they shot it and by the way. Let me just in this out there. One of my favorite films. I saw my dad when I was a kid. I don't know why I liked it. But something about it resonated with me because it it was about likable but evil people and I haven't criterion and it just came on a two weeks ago on a Sunday maybe as we hear on Sunday and I I you know I recorded it and my wife came and sat down my beautiful white shirt and she sat down on Sunday morning. Sun was eight year old kid he was like doing something like would you said look and so. It was introduced induced by the guys on on Turner Classic Movies and they said this amazing thing this that not only. Do we consider this one of possibly the finest film in America about America but maybe one of the three finest American films ever made and it's sweet smell of success. How do you beat that Leonard? I'll you tell you beat the dialogue. And how do you beat Lancaster's performance and Hammy is. Tony Curtis artists who became a friend. Later on as Hammy as those guys could be whole shots with him undressing and dressing in the one thing where he's firing everything they they build up. Burt Lancaster's entrance. Oh my gosh. They're leading up here in the nightclub. Burt Lancaster in this film. which if you haven't seen you should? Now he fifty seven sweet smell of success he plays a really a lethal. Yeah and cruel Broadway columnist columnist columnists in those days held a lot of power. And then Jiechi ruin your make you WANNA learn exactly. So they're building up to his our first view of him in this Copacabana style nightclub and finally the next to last shot is him signing a check a a checkup for the for the Club for dinner that night and then you see him but they build up to it so perfectly so beautifully. And that's the outdoor the exterior photography by James Wong Man. Is that it killer watching New York at that moment in time Manhattan. Forty seven nights. I mean but but these these are like huge cameras right there. Big Mitchell I dunno panavision was just starting to come in. But he's a big Mitchell cameras that he's shooting at night. The the credits are loan dusk. It's not dust. Yeah love love that look and the credits from the back of one of those New York Times is out in. Broadway's lit up behind on you. The film vocabulary in it is staggering and to walk from like back lit neon in black and white. By the way the dark Broadway into the worst phosphorus lit diner where everything is blown out. It's not only just changing the focus on you know. Oh you gotTA stop stops and do that was insanely difficult. But the performance is in it or are amazing and there are wonders where people go growth through rooms. You follow him all the way through rooms and the only other shot is the person watching me wonder means the cameras is following. I don't know I watched that movie and you know it's like watching. Ching certain films like apocalypse. Now let's take that. For example. One of my oldest friends and beautiful reds spent. Thanksgiving with him is is Laurence Fishburne I don't know why he calls me peewee. He's called me pee wee all my life and I call him Lorenzo and we've called it so we were talking about apocalypse now and the people table that net seen apocalypse now because fifteen sixteen seventeen year old twenty one year olds right. They know him from other movies and TV shows but they don't know him that he was fifteen years old doing apocalypse now and we were all discussing my wife about that. No sweet smell of success pockets now. Maybe there's four the films you can be going on a dinner date and then all of a sudden your cable. TV Station when it comes on and you say okay all right. I'll just watch Komo Martin. Sheen go up the river. You know. I'll just watch the divall. Seen a luck luck you're there you're there for the IT IS A. It is a train wreck doc so anyway my point is that I am in Japan in nineteen ninety something or other at the at the National Festival. Tokyo and with victorious Doron the toys Toronto arguably shifted the technique of color film and that is one of the first filter technicolor. And I didn't know you. I WanNa read a great book. Read by Oswald Morris Second Guy but worked with We have a problem Houston about him given The first Moulin Rouge for John Huston. You know a monochrome. The chrome back the bleach it out so it looks like to lose track because I did not know that technicolor was truly the mob. You didn't get your film released unless they sat down and said great three three basketball good released so you could mess with them but they sold a lab to Roman storrow because he was working for people like Dr Gento and and especially if the the car guys. He wanted a monkey around with huge light contrast like neon beer with a bare lightbulb. Now we look at it. You could see that blue. You could see how bear this is. This is like yellowish and you could do that now. In a chip that doesn't matter in the sixties. That was hard to do. You had to Futz with it and subsequently physically a filter technicolor. So when I was with him I said you know me. The modernist art guy said. Who's your favorite painter and studied art and he said Well have you ever been to Padua to see jolt tall in the Arena Chapel Chapel. Which is I? Don't even know who joe tow is man and he took his scarf. I've told us the MINI DEVI is researching like Coppola set to apocalypse now Pakistan. Right off the toys. The only guy could shoot in the mud in the Philippines. Come away in a white suit. Because that's what that's all Vittorio is man so he took his any flipped it and he said we can talk about us being talion guy and Ah I WANNA be but I went up to him and said Toya's pretends does your your. That's pretty pretentious. He goes no you. You are pretentious. Peter you are pretentious because because you have no context you have no if you tell you go into the arena chapel and you see and you see the first one two one six five like a television frame of space depth tears action motion a movie movie the narrative first one ever done since Rome. Everything comes out of that Peter. He was telling me you know because jolt does the one artist from whom all Western art stems and his and his reputation and his legacy has never come into question since Dante mentioned him. No one Picasso. It doesn't matter who you're talking about. Mark Rothko looked at Joe Talk Rauschenberg. They're all joked os. I didn't know who who this guy is. So I'm like the guy who says no star wars or this kid I just ran into God. BLESS HER ON CENTER WIPE IVO she said. I'm going to fill school. Honolulu teaches which is what we're looking at all films now. Like what out of Africa Occa- okay I get it..
