"zero entitlement" Discussed on The Bible Recap

"But then in chapter three nebi sets up a ninety foot gold statue. You really takes that dream and runs with it. Like gods said i'm the gold head so let's do this whether this statue is of nebi himself or of a babylonian god or of something else. The connection is clear is making an idol of his own identity. You so prideful. That he misses the entire point of the dream. Which is your kingdoms are temporary and god is sovereign over them all. He orders everyone to worship statue even inviting foreign dignitaries to join them but daniels three pows or like. that's definitely not kosher. Despite the fact that nebi promises a fiery death to anyone who doesn't bow down to his statue they resist some people tattle on shad me and abednego and nebi furious but he gives him another chance. They say that's going to be a no for me dog. And we know you're going to try to kill us for it but we have a hunch we're gonna survive because we know what god is capable of regardless of what god chooses to do we will worship him and only him. This is another example of confident humility. There's zero entitlement in their statement. They're not demanding. Anything from god in response nebi is so offended. Maybe because he just gave them promotions that he says to turn at the fire as high as it will go for them. Sometimes when we obey things get worse and in fact the fire is so hot that the people who are responsible for tying them up and putting them into it are burned alive in they go and they should die on the spot but somehow they're up and walking around in the fire unbound and they brought a plus one. Some people like king nebi believed this was an angel others believe it was a christophe that god the son was the one in the fire with them. Nebi is shocked. Obviously so he orders them out when they come out unbound. They don't even smell like smoke. And if you've ever sat by a campfire you know that's a miracle. Speaking of which the only thing the fire did to them was set them free from the things that bound them reminds me of what we read in. Isaiah forty three two..

It's just done a really good piece of land were probably upwards. Two million Why don't you sell some of the land and keep the cottage?

It was that it was the lake, part of it, right. Yeah, It's just generally having even a piece of it, you know, just said Just the memories that are attached to this. The area.

We sold it, You know, Instead, you got your you know, because you've saved up a half million dollars and you could about half the property and Had themselves off the other half or something like that, and that would have scratched your itch and then you then at that point, you become a customer of the estate, not someone who just feels entitled to it agreed. I agree. Yeah, just have the conversation. But I wouldn't go in there saying, Hey, this is what I want. This is what needs to be done. Just as we don't have any rights. Yeah, You're not entitled to anything. I'm sorry I hurt your feelings. I understand that. And it does mean a lot to you emotionally. I hear you saying that, but that doesn't give you any moral or legal or even emotional rights to it. We have a Lake house. And if I decide to sell it tomorrow, uh, it would break my kids hard because they've all learned to ski there. The grand babies have all spent time there. We all love it. It's the same kind of a thing. It's an emotional piece of property for us. It'll break my heart. Anthony Anthony Anthony Anthony would be crying. He's already his. His eyes are already leaking.

"Fifteen sixteen years old and he went through the process he only grew bigger and stronger more powerful than honed his craft and but the thing is the story about. Trevor isn't the physical stuff. It's the mental stuff. Is the competitive stuff. I i remember at the opening. The he was there He he was a sponge. Wood craig nall. One of our coaches who played seven years in the nfl was bugging him late at night going into his room after hours and asked him to teach more ball as a kid that love football he loves to learn. He has zero entitlement to him. He has no ego. is the team above self guy. So he checks every single box. There is to check as a prospect and he was checking back when he was seventeen years old. I mean i remember seeing watching them at the opening. This guy could go to an nfl training camp right now and throw one on one throw routes on air and look like an nfl quarterback you talk about that. I think that remember getting tough for him a little bit at the opening in the finals. What did you discover and watching him. Go through some adversity as a young person. Well that's the biggest thing. I look for quite honest with your ally base a lot of my evaluations off. How they respond to setbacks we look at it in game with an acronym pace plays after critic flares Study that really hard and in that environment of camp environment or a high school football game environment. A practice environment off the field. A guy can be a knucklehead off the field in house respond to that after the fact. So i think it's i think that metric evaluation has a lot to do with their long term success. Because you're gonna have a lot of setbacks. You're going to have a lot of adversity. And it's it's not what happened to you. It's how you respond to it and then trevor's a guy that whether it was the old venetian whether it was not winning the final game of his high school career. Whether it was a setback at clemson he's always been a guy bounces back better the next opportunity. And that's really what you're looking for him and tom. Brady's throwing a lot of interceptions. He's lost a lot of games is a lot of stinkers. He's got a lot of bad series. I think what separates ms that relentless pursuit of the next opportunity. And that's why he's been at his best for twenty one years those situations. Yeah me kind of echoed. What what he had said to me right back. I mean is it. Looks like an. Nfl quarterback is high school. He did and and talked about the adversity. That trevor faced during that event and our say having competed against trevor during that event it was difficult for him because it had been very easy for him to dominate. And it's the first i would say. The playing field is level s. o. The seat trevor have some struggles but to see the resiliency. The toughness grit and determination where he was able to bounce back and finish off strong Once again when you're evaluating quarterbacks you're always looking at how do they respond to bad things dead event. Trent kinda talked about. But but trinh kinda saw some of those things that we all see and we all like about him his build toughness. 'cause i think toughness comes out in a few different occasions. They know to how our next guest. Here's somebody that's known trevor..

"And you had a chance to visit with our buddy trent dilfer. Obviously this is a fun time for us. Because i feel like we get a chance to see these young quarterbacks grow up in front of our eyes. And so what i would like to do is go back to twenty seventeen to the top guys that came through the process process. Trevor lawrence justin feels. Let's story trevor lawrence when you first laid eyes on trevor lawrence. What did you think he was a sophomore or freshman highschool care member. And i said i'll be here was a kid that already was mature beyond his years obviously was a great athlete but was also pretty clean. You've been coached very well. In georgia by joey king had developed well had played a lot of seven on seven and already had played a lot of football level so he looked like a man even when he was fifteen sixteen years old and is he went through the process. He only grew bigger and stronger. More powerful than than honing his craft. And but the thing. I was the story about trevor. Isn't the physical stuff. It's the mental stuff. Is the competitive stuff i i remember at the opening of the year he was there. He was a sponge with. Craig nall one of our coaches who played seven years in the. Nfl was bugging him late at night going into his room after hours and asked him to teach more ball is a kid that loves football. He loves to learn. He has zero entitlement to him. He has no ego as team. Above self guy so he checks every single boxer is to check as a prospect. He was checking back near seventeen years. Old i mean. I remember seeing watching them at the opening scene. This guy could go to an nfl training camp right now and throw one one throw routes on air and look like an nfl quarterback. You know it's funny that you talk about that. I just think that remember getting tough for him. A little bit at at the opening in the finals. What did you discover and watching him. Go through some adversity as a young person. What's the biggest thing i look for. Be quite honest with you. Ally base a lot of my evaluations respond to setbacks We look at it in game with an acronym pace plays after critical flares Study that really hard and in that environment a camp environment or high school football game environment of practice environment off the field. A guy can be a knucklehead off-the-field and housing respond to that after the fact. So i think it's i think that that evaluation has a lot to do with their long term success. Because you're gonna have a lot of setbacks. you're going to have a lot of adversity. It's not what happened to you. It's how you respond to it and then trevor's a guy bit whether it was the old venetian whether it was not winning the final game of his high school career.

"zero entitlement" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio

"About you, master in the frozen for they were on Lee, Not Minnesota team there yet. Minnesota Duluth, Minnesota State in Saint Cloud State. But they ruined that Minnesota Invitational NC double A champions are the you, Master Intimate. Greg Carvell did a great job with this program. They don't have four players for the semifinal won that game, and then they just the mob's winning the National championship Coach Carr Bella's here. Thanks to the Good your hotline coach. Five years ago, you had ST Lawrence with that program. Five years later, your national championship coach with U Mass. What is that journey been like in those five years? It was a lot of work, but I was surrounded by a lot of good people, and that's what the most important thing I had a vision of how I'd like to run a program and I was doing that ST. Lawrence and I realized I didn't know house if I build the region national championship level there, So I moved on to U Mass where the research is work with better and hired really good people, and it was a grind our first year. We lost 17 games in a row. Two losers look to in the first year, and this year we ended the year with 15 game on beaten streak, so quite a turnaround in five years. Go back to that first year, you lose 17 straight. What was this journey like getting to what? You just mentioned it and winning it all. Well, it's a process and, uh how about culture and again so both people have high standards. Good players, high character players, and that's that's to me the data that is finding the right kid so you can push and coach there's there's zero entitlement in our program, which is to me. Really important, So we get great kids. We keep kept raising the standards and good kids push in the right way to care for him and You're honest with them, and they they understand that you're looking for help for their best interests will keep pushing for you and not just what happened over four years. We play. We play in the national champs of Game two years ago with a very young team. We're all freshmen sophomores, and this year Two years later. We're much more mature team in the shoulders. We weigh handle the championship game quite easily. Coach Pretty not can't tell you how many times we talked to a coach, whether it's Davos, Sweeney or Nick Saban or Ryan Dave at the collegiate level, and they all say that same word that that you just mentioned culture. How hard is it as a coach to build that culture and then sustained that culture that you're doing right now? Do you mess It's a lot of work its data date. It's every decision and the consistency has to be Absolutely pure. You can't treat any kids differently that zinnias. She had a lot of programs where you start treated differently than here. Your lower in players and it's not the case for us, and you saw that when we lost four players. For the national semifinal, do the covert restrictions. Everybody thought we were dead in the water picks up books for those of us inside the program because it didn't matter if we lost the first one there fourth liner. We lost our first string goal and we lost our leading gold score and we found a way to beat the team of the two time national defending champion. Great stuff by great Carvell, the head coach at U Mass winning a national championship in hockey, joining us and Freddie Fitzsimmons on ESPN radio. I'm gonna go back to that world culture. How much of that was really key? Because you said with covert 19 and everything that you were spent after this whole year with your team, how much of that really was able to have you last and win a national championship because of the culture. We went in the year and I said to the team. Whoever can handle the cold dead situation. The best is gonna be a big advantage. I saw a lot of teams go on pause. Our team never had a positive, colder test until that national semi final game with and it was one kid s. So we went the entire year without a positive test, And that allowed us an upper hand in a lot of games with teams coming up positive, so Kids sacrificed a lot of big sacrifice things that other student athletes were willing to sacrifice and again that goes back to culture and the stronger culture in the more committed your kids are doing committed to following High standards and to me that ended up being I think the difference for us is that we would be able to be consistent all year long. Not get shut down. We have to stop and start except for one stretch for the state. Shut us down. It wasn't a case where our kids have done anything to catch the virus. And to me that was a key and culture is everything And we would be preaching it for years and you get to a point where you stop preaching it and the players start preaching up. And it becomes very powerful and got us to where we're, uh And I got chills watching that moment. Um, three month, three minutes to go and you call your team over. Describe the people exactly what your message was. And why this was so important for you to tell these young men Embrace this. Oh, you were fortunate. Not many championship games. Do you have a, uh followed leads where the game and determined And in our sport, you know, with time out with five minutes are left left left in the game, and it was 3.5 minutes, so the game was over. All sense of purpose is but what? It gave me the opportunity for new ones that clock struck. You know, everybody's gonna go crazy motions with flow out and I had their attention and more than anything I wanted to thank them. Because we've pushed them hard, and they've responded, and so one of them to look each other in the eyes and a tight circle. And I figured that'd be the moment that they'd really remember when when you called him in, and I asked him to Think think about where they're at right now. I told them it's time is that it? I'm telling you, I'm 50 years old. It's not gonna get any better than this, so soak it in for the same time. You can't think you kids enough for what you've given to me in the program, So it was a nice opportunity. Oh, really have a memorable moment.

"zero entitlement" Discussed on Borne the Battle

"Listener for awhile you'll know that every time i pro- and upcoming episode it's like bad juju because it never works out the way i- promo it But we're doing it Remind you that. Were two episodes away from secretary. Mcdonagh's interview here on born the battle. The a employee or not is not very often that a veteran gets to interview an incoming secretary so early It was cnn. Jake tapper was first up and then us So stay tuned for that. That will be episode to thirty five. Received a couple ratings. And got a clarification. From what i put out on last week's monologue last week i that i was going to do some digging concerning vr. Army and i did We had a review for episode. Two thirty and i went deep I wanted it to be as clear as i can find it. I wanted to go straight to the source material Last week responded to review. This said Then she informed me that. I had zero months. Post nine eleven. Gi bill and that. I would not be able to go to college. According to the program director v houston that is ally according to the eight national director. I'm assuming he means undersecretary. That is a lie. Okay so on episode two thirty. Vr director william stripe burger talked about the subsistence rates at around the twenty eight ten mark talked about having one month of bill entitlement to receive the higher gi bill substance rate. It wasn't a question about overall eligibility and an overall tuition issue like a reviewer posted and i researched so bad on me for not going to the original conversation and actually listening on where we were in the conversation when we were talking about the army and this one month of gi bill entitlement again it was about the level of subsistence. The vr and e program could buy. That's one to emailed some more folks over at the veterans benefits administration. And i asked them to cite the policy or federal law. A definitive source in their response about this one month irs. Zero months When it comes to substance subsistence and this is what i got as outlined in thirty eight c. f. are in that means code of federal regulations. Twenty-one dot forty and twenty one dot fifty eligibility for the vr an e program is not related to the eligibility for the post nine eleven gi bill and we weren't talking about the eligibility per thirty eight. Cf are twenty one dot three to zero while a veteran participate in a training program. He or she may qualify for subsistence allowance or monthly stipend the then go onto into the tenants of eligibility and benefits. Which were the same that we discussed on the podcast. Then it says as outlined in 'em to charlie dot victor dot bravo dot seven dot zero seven. Which the manual for how they administer the benefit and i. I went on and read this. It's available online. The rate at which the stipend is paid could be comparable to the post nine eleven gi bill basic allowance for housing rate is. The veteran has at least one day of chapter thirty three in tatum. Remaining under the education program if the individual has zero entitlement remaining he or she does not qualify for the b. h. rate but would be paid under the vr in each chapter thirty one rate Which that rate is covered in the entire m. twenty-eight charlie dot victor dot bravo dot seven section. It's the manuals the m twenty eight. Charlie trust me. This is all searchable. And i went down a rabbit hole in this one and i looked at it and and this is what this i was reading. the vr any chapter thirty one rate is based on their training program enrollment rate and number of dependents if applicable the rate of the monthly stipend is the only connection between vr e and gi bill programs eligibility for either program is not contingent on the other however they cannot be used concurrently. If you qualify for both you gotta pick one or the other. So the information and mr straight burgers interviewed lions up with the federal regulations in the manual. On how it's administered Sorry p soren That you had a bad experience with the program. And i'm not familiar with your case about not being able to go to college under the program. Anything i would guess about the issues that you had would be speculation at this point When it came to the back and forth the training that was thought needed to gain entry into the design career field and whatnot. Piece worn four-to-three shoe email to podcast dot gov and unless talk all right and i was also notified by a listener over the week Who twitter That the app pod chaser actually has reviews and that had a couple on there had no idea. This was a thing The review is from joe's stone says five excellent podcast featuring powerful stories from veterans. If you've served these stories are not only a great example resiliency but also a reminder that we are not alone in our experiences and our struggles plus the podcasts also features frontline information on resources with the department of veterans affairs.

"Here? What how did you get to be able to do this? Or how did you get to know how to do this? Vocally or whatever it may be an honestly I tell people hey go suck for awhile. Meaning get out of your little pond big fish thing and go and be the least talented person in the room and on the on the Tyler Perry tour. I was by far the least towns a person in the room but I learned so you just a sponge. Oh such a sponge dude. I was the first one off the bus. I was getting people's luggage and by far and I was one of the. I think I was the youngest person. Because the these folks I mean you Cheryl Pepsi Riley. Who is an RN? B. Singer in the nineties had a couple of hits and Palmer Williams Junior? Who's on all Tyler Perry's TV shows? I mean these are older folks you know they got fifteen twenty years on me and some of them were singing on Broadway all this stuff and I am a little old me you know. What was the reception like? They were great this young kid. Yeah Yeah I was the one of two white folks and there was a female named Stephanie Ferret. Who's unbelievable singer But the because of my attitude going in the reception was great. Meaning I I walked in. I had Zero Pride Zero entitlement. I was there to learn. I was there to complement the other's and just you know kind of have the I was. I was super vulnerable and I was not a threat to the folks in other words. I didn't come in acting like you know I've got all this swag and walking around like belong. No I was the opposite I was like. I'm so thankful to be here. Thank you so much for allowing me to be in this cast. What can I learn? Feel free to critique me you know if I can do something better please feel free to let me know. Can I help you with this? Let me get your bag. You know I was paying my dues. I knew I'm very very socially aware and I think that's so for folks as you're just start now. Go hit open mics. Go Suck for a while you've got to. You've got to get out there. Get Out of the comfort zone. Go learn and be a sponge instead of being the big fish small pond. Because guess what you're not GONNA learn you're not gonNA grow if you're that person so I love Being the the lease towns a person in the room honestly. And that's where all my connections come from and and I have no problem. Admitting there's always someone out there that's way better and that once it more than you and I always had that in the back of my brain. I was always humble and hungry for that. Are you a competitive person by nature I am I feel like the older? I've gotten the least competitive I get I like to celebrate other people's success and there's not a lot of jealousy. There used to be obviously but I feel like the older. You get the more experience you get the more comfortable you become your own skin and absolutely and this business isn't any business to be quite honest. That's just life and I love. I mean this business is cutthroat enough as it is so I love to celebrate us to celebrate other people's wins and They do the same for me and I. I just think sure look. There's enough talent to go around. There's enough gigs to go around. There's enough you name it. There's enough records to go around. We don't need to compete with one another. We need to lift each other up. Man That's fantastic Perception absolutely see Did Tyler. Perry or you did the Tyler Perry Gig. How did how did that turn out. And where did you go? You went to a Michael Jackson tribute tour from there. Yeah so that that show. Unfortunately we were supposed to be out for fourteen months. Touring theaters all over the country and as an aside. That's the most fun I've ever had in my professional life. I wish I could do it again tomorrow. Unfortunately we got taken off the road. Pretty quickly About two months in. Unfortunately Tyler's mom had passed away so we we all got you know everything. Production to Scott immediately. I think we're in Detroit at the Fox theater and our tour manager came back so hey guys a meeting and I said Hey. This is what happened. This is our last stop. So we're going home in a couple of days so we were supposed to play the Kodak in l. a. where the Oscars and all those awards shows we're supposed to play the Fox in Atlanta. Which would have been a dream for me and all these huge amazing iconic venues and that got cut short unfortunately but from there One of the CAST members. I struck up a friendship with I got a call randomly. Probably a few months later this out of the blue and Yeah I joined A Michael Jackson tribute show called man in the mirror and that was put on by spirit. Productions out of London and Yeah they wanted a white guy and the the guy had worked spirit reductions in the past and he was like. Hey I know the white guy let me call him and so man. It was a blast. It was like a theater show. It definitely wasn't an impersonation it wasn't like that it was more okay five or six singers doing their take and we'll each. Each person had their own moments throughout the show but liberty. Yeah absolutely we had set would change and we had dancers and That is where I got to see the world The company was based in London did Multiple UK tours. We did Amsterdam Barcelona Monte Carlo. In Monaco right on terrain and a matter of fact. That's where I got engaged. I flew my now wife out there and I proposed and the exotic gardens looking over the Mediterranean in Monte Carlo. It was ridiculous same spot. Let's ask the same right so that was so cool and getting to see the world. I think that was that was one show where you know. There was a lot of a lot of stresses that went with it. You know the day to day. Miss home in All kinds of stuff. I'm I'm all the way across the world but I still woke up with. I cannot believe I get to do this. I'm getting paid to sane and my voice is taking me all over the world like literally. I just thought that was so cool. I would never ever have those opportunities coming from. You know small Georgia at the time. Now it's a bigger down. Obviously but when I grew up a hardee's dairy queen you know and this little you know southern boy from rural Georgia now gets toured the World Sing and soul music from Michael Jackson. I mean that was A. That's a dream you know so I I look back on that and yes now like the music sucked either right right every night man. I never got old. It really. Didn't that performance itself and just getting to see the world and try like there was one day you know because we would go into a city and if those of you listening wherever you live if you think about your nearest theatre or whatever or win like Hamilton comes to town. It's there for two or three weeks. You know it was kind of the same thing so we weren't just in an out. We were in a city for a long time so we got to see a lot of the cities and there. There was one weekend in Amsterdam We had already seen the city. We'd been there two weeks or so and we had two consecutive days off and I was kind of a loner at this point to be quite honest I didn't really hang with a lot of the cast because I miss my wife. I wanted to be in my room facetime with her. I didn't want to get into some of the things the others who were doing. I'll leave it at that but yeah two weeks in Amsterdam right right so I don't want to get into all that but so one day I used to stay up super super late over there so it would be on time so I'd stay up till five. Am and which is normal bedtime for the US. I can't remember the exact time difference but sure but I would watch braves games on my laptop till four or five in the morning and Amsterdam you know and just act like that was a hard fan and I would sleep super late and but yeah there was. There was one morning I woke up. I was like man. I WANNA Google. How far is Paris from here and I just looked up and auto whim. I bought a train ticket. I think is a three and a half hour direct train ride and I went to Paris for the day by myself and I walked her. I was there for probably ten eleven hours. Did the Eiffel Tower thing. You all the touristy stuff went to the Louvre and just got back on. The train went back to Amsterdam and I did all that by myself on a whim it was just so cool to get to see the world like that so it sounds like man that was a pretty terrific gig But it couldn't have been just all terrific other than missing Sandra and and being away from home and the weird hours like what part of the Grind. Kinda was difficult. It sounds like him but surely something was hard. Sure absolutely well for first off as a just a thirty thousand view for those listening no matter what Gig you get A. You could be drummer out there wanting to land the biggest most a list act ever. I promise you there are downsides to it in those terms would tell you what those are. There's no matter what you do. Every gig every single gig there's there's there's rough patches because you know we only see the performance right but there's there's a grind behind the scenes and for me on that tour. I think if I'm super honest. The the management of the company that we were out with was not great They were a little sketch and yet look out. Make sure you got your correct amount in your check. And you know stuff like that. And you had to you know some cities the contact or the talent booker. Who brought us in to the city would cover art lodging and all this stuff so in Monte Carlo which is one of the in the country of Monaco is one of the most richest countries in the world and they put us up in a five star hotel. Oh well I'm in a five star hotel for three weeks in freaking paradise right. But then we go to the U. K. Tour where the.

"But yeah I mean honestly the money. I'm not sure of the market now but it used to be fantastic. I mean Gosh you could be making at the time. Well I mean think think. Think about a twenty two year old kid. You know in the early two thousand. Yeah you're making a thousand thousand six. Yeah I mean you're you're making a thousand something like that. Yeah after agency our agency gets cut. And there's some travel expenses but if you do one hundred of those a year man. You're looking real good you know and of course. I was so I was a typical young silly kid and I didn't really know how to save money but Like like most of us but But all that to say that's circuit and I'm assuming it's somewhat the same but if you really work on it and you have a really good promo video and you sell yourself to agency. It's a good means to make a living for sure. Well man that's also how long. How long did you do that for? Gosh that was probably off and on for if I had to guess maybe eight years or so to be honest. Hit The we at the pinnacle of it and we you know we want some awards the most you know best coffeehouse quote Unquote Act this year and whatever year it was and so that meaning we. We just got the most bookings and we're the most Sought after act. I guess to go to your your school and So yeah it was. It was a great time and it was it. Was you know it's easy? I mean looking back on it. A young twenty something. I wish I had my head on straight a little more easy to get trump and and just do stupid stuff as most kids do but essentially Right out of high school if you really look at the timeline of it right out of high school. I'm signing a deal and a year or two later. I'm on the road. I mean it's like hello real world. You know there's no more English class now. It's like hitting the pavement and see and stuff and the on the road majority say notice stuff. Yeah exactly how she did that for so you did that for a good while. It sounds like through your twenties for the most part. Where did what? What opportunity did you get from that? Or how did you were? You able to leverage anything in that in the circuit to kind of go from there to your next step. Yeah I think honestly what I take away from my time. College touring is probably just experience. I mean truthfully the depending on the night each show depends on the quality of the student activity board at the school. That booked you meaning. You could go one night and have a contact or a board who so excited about you come. And they've promoted it and they put you in a theater and there's three hundred people there four hundred people there and then you could go the very next night an hour up the road and it's the the person in charge is just doing it to get some credit and they don't care about the actual event itself there's no promotion and there might be three people no joke one time. They put me in a computer lab and there was one dude in there and when he saw US setting up he turned around looked at us and he put his headphones on you. So it's like all that to say I mean and this is when the Youtube Star Church Church youth camps that started like that exactly and and this is when the youtube thing was really starting to take off so people were recording us our shows and honestly dude We had we would travel to wherever and people were singing our songs back to us and even though they weren't released they were just seeing them live versions on Youtube. I was like how cool is that. You know so it was a good. It was a good way to get exposure and to gain fame and to make really great money But at the same time it's really just every single day was a different situation and it wasn't pretty one By no means was glamorous. It was cutting teeth pay in your dues and learning how to work an audience. Even if there's three people or three hundred or four hundred and you just learn to work an audience and tell funny jokes and be silly and not take yourself too serious. Is there a place that If you find yourself taking it too seriously as place you have to go to kind of mentally trick yourself into like. Hey man three people give it. Give it the three thousand. Yeah absolutely mean I think that circuit to be honest that circuit unfortunately gone are the days of record labels paying attention and go. Hey man this this guys out there tour and like crazy but you know all you have to do like is tour that circuit with the understanding that you're not necessarily going to get a deal out of it but just take it for what it is. It's it's a great circuit to make great money build some fans get some emails on your mailing list and just cut your teeth. You know. But when I was young I was thinking this was going to launch me into a big record deal you know and so I was a little disappointed in that because quite honestly record labels. Don't pay attention to your amount of tour dates from colleges. They just don't because it's a completely separate world but may have but once. I stopped taking myself so serious and just doing it for what it was a man it was it was a blast and even if it was one of those shows where there's three people you know at the end of the day. I'm getting paid really well to travel and play music for an hour an hour show. That's it so I was like man. How could I complain about this? So it's all about perspective you know and I learned that at a young age as well sure. Now that's GONNA perspective being able to zoom out and say you know Kinda. This is the big picture and this is where this event fits in. So let me give it everything I got right and especially for folks that have hopefully are listening to multiple of these. Podcasts are going to find out that they're going to see a pattern that you guys giving it everything you got for. The three people is usually what opens up the door down the road. Not necessarily you giving it your all for three thousand people. Because that's kind of easier expected right. I mean one thousand percent. I mean it's it's all about habits and honestly just honoring honoring the craft. Nothing worth it is handed to you. You know it's not supposed to be easier otherwise we would do it. And that's just not the case and you have to be okay with that you know there's zero entitlement and this business has a funny way of knocking. You back down to Earth once. You think you've made it Yup. I picked up a picked. Up From my father-in-law is the hard way. As the easy way which basically goes both ways right. If you put in the hard work it will ultimately becomes the easy way to have done it absolutely but if you try to put in the easy work it becomes the hard way to do exactly as the hard way the hard ways easy way a anyways and that applies here is exactly what you're saying. Hundred percent applies in the business world. As well where I do most of my work cool so you did that for a while. And where where'd you go from there? And what made you Kinda step out? Yes sure so. I was still kind of doing it for a long time. Slowly slowly tapered off. I mean I started over this time I was married. I ended up having a Kiddo three years ago so technically. I'm still on an active roster. I just don't get as offers like I used to because I kind of made it clear to my through. Neka yes I. I made it clear that agency is like. I don't really want to go do that that much anymore. If something comes up cool hit me up I'll say your name but You know in you know desires change. I didn't really want to be on the road row dog in it so much. A hundred percent began with that right. So like from there Gosh years and years of doing that but while I was home in the summer because obviously at the time. There's there's no touring there's no college during the summer. So I started making connections in Atlanta just being that I was born and raised here and there was a started making a name for myself and I would have residency gigs. I'd play Sambuc Jazz Club on Thursday nights I would play Gosh there was a cigar bar and Alfa Reta Georgia. I would play on Friday nights and it was just. It was always places to play and I was always getting GIG GIG GIG GIG and I would just start striking up relationships man relationship. I you know and then I started. Land some great gigs. And Gosh from there I joined a cover band does like corporate party stuff so they need the tour bus. The whole nine yards so base. Go on the weekends. If if there's really expensive fancy wedding you know in Texas or something. We'd go and we'd perform do cover tunes and it was like a dance thing so you dress up and you got a big huge ban. I'm sure we've all seen stuff like that at weddings yet. Insane with corporate events started doing that as well with with this band and I started getting attention from Tyler. Perry's world who is obviously a media mogul And I got I got asked to be in the cast of his stage. Play musical called laugh to keep from crying and that was I want to say that was around. Two thousand eleven to two thousand ten thousand eleven and Man. We were playing For about two and a half months on the road nonstop playing sold out theaters. All across the country is great. What did you get from the Tyler? Perry GIG both From a networking standpoint and talent wise. Like what did you? What did you grow as an artist in that season? Yeah man my takeaway. From that was to be honest. I always tell people People are so kind to come up and say man. How do you get.

"You have done a masterful job of capturing and then shaping and then writing like your humor has developed a lot over the since our first book I would say say your ability comedic. -Ly I think so. I think a lot of it was confidence. Just weren't this is number five so you get those reps in and again. Good deadline will force. It is kind of you know. Pick Elaine go with it and just bright the second. Guess Yourself Yeah. I've oftentimes when some whenever anyone ever accuses me of being a Douche or hard to work with can't write five books or someone to be hard to work with like it just can't be flaky. It can't be unrealistic. You can't be a lot of negative things that a lot of people are who you work with and do five books someone over the phone especially because it won't it can't work. I don't know how or you know the good thing about you. Is you've medium low self esteem. I've like medium low self esteem so we don't. We don't have any hassles and we don't have we. Don't have any loggerheads or anything I am. I don't I like I like a nice low self esteem person. Not so I can run over them just because I'm low self esteem and it makes it easier to process entitlement zero entitlement. Yes Zero and not in pat myself on the back. I doubt there's a lot of people in your who'd be like yeah. Okay we'll talk a one in the morning my time while you're driving back from the comedy store. Yup I remember a few of those phone calls and I always gave you the caveat of. I know it's late where you are and I'm not gonNA hold it against you but that's also the deadline comes in and it's also where assertive reality comes in is it's one. Am Your time. When I'm driving home from the comedy store and we're working on the book Now you could go to bed but it doesn't mean that chapter is going to be put to bed. See what I did there. You're going to it. Just means you have to do it the next day and then that may but up against that chapter from that day and I think once you start thinking that way life gets a little more realistic if not easier. Yeah well I was thinking about talking with one of the the game. One of the great clients I got as a result of being on this show about Work Ethic and we were talking about both had paper routes growing up and how that that is something. We don't have any more debt we need. I've started working when I was eight. Yeah you know my first job. I was eight years old. I was delivering newspapers. I would get up on the weekends. It would be six in the morning. It would still be dark out and I'd be hauling big fat Sunday papers and collect the money and I had to myself and pay off and well. Let's let's discuss this because I was just discussing that on the podcast the other week rush saying like you know the bygone era of the of the paper around teaching young boys mostly to work and what was entailed and we got into some detail about it and I thought it was important but oftentimes think of two of my best friends growing up. One of them was a paper route guy and the other one worked at. Kfc GOT A job. There could have been like fourteen and a half or fifteen worked every waking hour for minimum wage at the KFC in North Hollywood on Lankershim. He was there you know it's like when we out doing this. He was working at the. Kfc You know and it was like eight. Imagine that's not a very glamorous job but he worked and he worked hard and he any saved up. I don't know some outrageous some like thirteen hundred dollars or something and by the time he was a senior in high school he could by himself a US. Vw Bug and my other friend saved up. Thousands of dollars are maybe twenty five hundred bucks or just off of this paper route but when I was a senior in high school I was worth seven dollars. Maybe and I never really worked. I didn't have paper routes and I didn't do that stuff that a lot of you know. I went to my uncle's farm and he taught me the value good working. I didn't do any of that stuff later in life. I was like you'd better get together. You better figure you better start learning how to do this and a lot of it was out of desperation but those guys ended up being pretty much failures and I ended up being successful so there wasn't a straight line that might grandpappy taught me. You know that kind of thing because I grew up. Just you know people flop down on. Sova watching Maude you know. Look there's no ethic. My never told me anything. There's no business or family business or even chores and you know we we flopped. You wanted to clean your room. Because Lena Room you didn't WanNA cleaner and then don't clean your room like that. We didn't learn anything. I figured out at some point that's never gonNA work or is not effective or doesn't serve me. I have no idea why those guys who had that great base of work never turn out. Never turn out to serve them later on. But I don't know how do you explain that like? What would you chalk that up to? I don't know there's X. factors with everybody. That's you know as therapist like you. You got to do the work of getting to know the individual because there's always those those variables I in what the X. factor is for you that that had you go wait. This isn't working. You know the the old joke. How does the fish know that it's wet like you grew up in this environment? You should have just accepted it and Ben with but you know this is fucked up. I'm Marilyn Munster here what's going on Where that comes from. I don't know what that is and I don't know what to ascribe it to and it goes in the opposite direction to like. How does somebody from an environment where there were good boundaries and structure and everything like that? Go go awry. Well I guess the answer is there's always going to be a handful of folks to the good like me who just grew up in a bad environment with no structure and then got structure and got it. And then there's always going to be the guy was structure in boarding school and all the whatever. Od's at twenty six. I I there's always gonna be that but I guess those are the outliers and the the moral. The story is is if you have a paper route. You have a better chance because you're probably not going to end up in one of those outlined groups anyone yeah or just occurring to be now like if it is it. How was that valued when you did work hard? Do the paper did mom dad say. Hey good job buddy. I'm proud of you or did they go. Yeah okay whatever and if it was yeah okay. Whatever maybe then learn. Oh hard work doesn't matter You know the the response could be one of the variables that changes the dynamic the process of writing the book. I guess it's a it's just big the small right. We just start with the concept. You start with an idea. These are huge in. And you just keep refining distilling it down and down and down. Yeah this this book. I remember exactly where I was. When it you know the concept kind of popped in my head. I emailed you that day I was. I had gotten strep throat so I kind of quarantine myself. My parents towns like crashed at my parents place. So that you get the family sick and I was watching clipper you on Laura Ingraham and you were talking about John Mayer talking about toxic masculinity and you are you know doing a a rant about that and you said you know I wrote a book called in fifty years while checks. I didn't realize of his WHO's going to be about nine and a half not fifty and I was like yeah. It's it's time it's time to do a sequel. The culture has accelerated absurdly in this direction. And it's time to update it with because when we wrote the first book I mean you. You may not have even been on twitter at the time you know. We didn't address any of the social media stuff. You know metoo hadn't happened yet. Trump wasn't president yet. There's there's much stuff that has has come in in the past five years That just needed to be addressed. Yeah I I DID NOT. I mean obviously I felt something in the Zeitgeist in the way the wind was blowing otherwise we wouldn't have titled the first one in fifty years. We'll all be checks but so there was a sense of. I don't know I I always talk about my grandfather. In Hungary in nineteen thirty eight or nine or something going. Hey Man I'm Ju I'm I'm GonNa cut out and everyone's like where are you going? Lots and he's like I'm I gotTA leave. And he felt it others felt it and then others had no idea what was going on and ended up going to gulags and worse. You know. So it's like I guess there's an element of trying to be tapped in a little bit so that you can kind of arrive at places before other people arrive there you know. It's funny that people call like predicting or prognosticating or whatever. But I don't know I think it's more just being dialed in a little bit so that you can. It makes your little bit clairvoyant. If your little bit dial then yeah I mean I think you know that's a skill that and I think you've made this point before but worth repeating the idea that you came from a construction and your work with cars. You need to know five steps ahead you need to know how things are. GonNa lay out because you need to put them in sequence. You know you tell that story about you. Know putting the drywall up and covering the rough electrical and that up like you need to know the the order of Events. Well you apply that same logic to the culture he go. This will happen. This will happen then. This will happen in fifty years. We'll all be chicks. Yeah I I I do like the I do. Wish like the military in Israel like I was saying when I was talking about the newspaper routes like everyone should year fast-food duty. You know at age. Sixteen or seventeen. Everyone should work on a construction site for year like the construction site is a perfect metaphor. Because it's all the different trades together and you know people think of people's like as a construction guy or carpenter guy or something. But the guys you do.

"He showed a tweet or text him. Any questions that you have and I hope you enjoy good afternoon. Thank you so look I think there's there's so many different things to talk about today But what I really want to focus on is really the two extremes. The more I spent time in the business world in life in general the more I realized that the middle sucks that there's so many people that got caught up in the middle and what I mean by that is. I really genuinely believe leave that. What makes us successful business? And then more importantly much more importantly I think what really helps someone be happy is really winning. Hang on the edges and what I mean by winning on the edges is the following. I've come to realize that since at a very young age. I've been playing in the two extremes streams of having a North Star perspective a mindset that has allowed me to be happy and then all the way on the other extreme be wildly and deeply plea in practitioner ship and actually making and doing and even seeing this gentleman wearing the clouds dirt. Sneaker that was. I'm not sure I'm ever going to position anything or any product in more honest place from where I play because really I am a complete byproduct I product of somebody who lives in the clouds and plays in the dirt and in the analogy. I started this with. which is the middle sucks? I generally watch people play in the middle so they don't have a strategy or when I say strategy they lack self awareness of WHO. They actually are deeply dependent on other people's judgment. There's a whole lot of hopes and wants versus realities and and they're just genuinely not not structured to be happy because of the circumstances of DNA parenting environment and and that's the clouds like so. It's just so fun fun to live a life where you're not worried about other people's opinions when you're not dwelling on the past when you lack the ability to expect things from others because what it leads to just a whole lot of happiness it also leads to all the stuff I talk about when you genuinely are happy about your process. You really enjoying what you do. You really tuned out both the cheering and the booing all of a sudden so much good behavior comes from that. You don't buy dumb shit to impress impress people because you're not worried if they're impressed or they're not you do make content or start things because it fails. You're not worried about them booing you. Oh you're not worried about the judgment you it's just such an interesting place and I will probably spend the majority of my next sixty years trying to get to a place where I figure about different ways how to communicate this clouds thing because it's extremely obvious to me that my mentality. The way I was raised. The serendipity serendipity and this is completely driven by gratitude I get the stand up here because of the luck of the moment that my parents decided to have sex right because because this is a DNA DNA thing. I mean that I genuinely mean it like like my perspective on life. My complete and utter obsession with not having any expectations spectator from any other human being having no expectations having zero entitlement genuinely not thinking. I deserve anything still being in a place where I was at the airport. Just now I took like seven southeast before I boarded some guy slides and I saw him watching the whole time slides in these like you ever tired of them like never never.

"But he'll let chiefs credit card. But so Chris and Charlie Philip just having people that I can talk to about business is you got to have people who are experts in areas. You're not I'm on an email list right. Nell were of this Mexican story. That I was talking about is circulated and there actually is some very interesting data about the family in Mexico that They they're nuts farmers in northern Mexico and they've lived in the area for a very long time time They had some very big business deals there and there are others who were tried to cut into their business. Deals It just it's it's. There's a rivalry taking shape south of the border. There's gang violence south of the border. And it seems that the American media has a hard time figuring out how they're gonNA deal with it because they don't WanNa play into Donald Trump's hands because they're so against the president's immigrations plans is difficult to get the truth out of what's happening in Mexico because I think if people understood what was happening in Mexico they would be more concerned turned in more willing to agree with the president that the border needs to be secured then so the media is essentially trying to downplay stories in Mexico of violence in order to avoid avoid. The president's immigration plans getting traction. And that's something. We should all be concerned about now. I I need their circle. Back to the issue of Aaron Calvin and cancel culture. Aaron Calvin is the reporter who worked for the Des Moines Register. Sister and Aaron Calvin did a profile of who he calls local celebrity Carson King and it cost him MS job. Carson King is the twenty something who stood up on ESPN and held up a sign saying send me beer money and had his vin Mo- number Where people could send him a text and he could get beer money me and he got over a million dollars from people by holding up that sign and he decided to partner with local children's Hospital comporting with the local children's hospital He would give them money. Anheuser Busch partnered with him. They were GonNa make even more money. They were GONNA put his name on cans and then Aaron Calvin showed up. Let me read you a little bit of Aaron Calvin who wrote the profile of Carson King. We King announced that his fundraiser had crossed the million dollar mark. I decided to write a longer profile of him. I drove out to his home Minna suburb of Des Moines. I've been talking with King via Facebook Messenger. But this was my first time meeting him in person he was unable and struck me as a genuinely kind. And well-meaning person as I began writing an editor requested that I run a background check on King. This is standard practice at the register as it is for many newspapers when reporting on public figures. I looked at King's court records as well as public social media and I found a few racist jokes. He tweeted in highschool in context. I could see these had been references to sketches is by the comedian Daniel. Tosh I told my editor about the tweets. It was asked to reach out to king for comment. I believe this was the right thing to do. Performing background checks on public figures is part of a journalist responsibility responsibility. If I had found the tweets others would too I approach king with an understanding. That what you tweet in highschool is not necessarily representative of your beliefs as adults and he duly apologized apologized. I included a brief mention of the offensive tweets and kings apology toward the end of my profile. It was a small moment placed in context of the end of a positive story. The tweets were part of a narrative of growth maturity and compassion. Not An accusation. gotcha moment when I asking about his tweets. I try to communicate. I wasn't trying to bring him down. It was clear to me now though that he was worried about personal blowback blowback as is common in the world of celebrity. Pr He moved to get ahead of the details that would be revealed in the profile. He held a press conference and he. I apologize publicly in a statement given to the local television statements. He noted a register reporter had brought the tweets to his attention. I was not provided the statement. I don't believe kings out implicate me but because he preempted my forthcoming profile. People believed I hadn't intended intended to impugn his character. You know what I can stop reading this garbage. This guy welled up losing his job by by sabotaging king. I want to again and read you a couple of key phrases in here the standard practice at the moines register it just as it is for many newspapers win reporting on public figures performing background checks on public figures is a part of a journalist responsibility but this Guy Carson King is not a public figure. He's a guy who held up a sign on TV. Asking for beer. Money in the media made him famous in this time and time again is what the media does it builds the people up it makes them famous than it seeks to destroy them in. This guy can't seem to understand that he played a role in. He doesn't think it's his fault but not only that he doesn't WanNA still acknowledge that cancel culture exists in fact. He says he was fired. He wasn't canceled. He was fired. But that's the whole point of it. I maybe he takes it to literally. The word cancelled will love not cancelled. I'm still here. No no kid. You're cancelled the media has fired you and good luck getting a job. He's happy go As an act dependents to the Columbia Journalism Review and right from his side. How he did nothing wrong? And and and he's he's he's a he's a fallout from people going after but he wasn't canceled but he was. Maybe it's cognitive dissonance. I don't know But this guy blew up another person and he got caught in the fallout of his own story. What's interesting is that one? He can't recognize that the person he covered wasn't a public figure. This guy's job Darren Calvin at the register he's the guy who got Calvin who who sabotage Carson King. The kid who got a million dollars beer money by holding up Asahi's Bien and donated to the hospital and Aaron Calvin One cannot accept that Carson King is not a famous person. He can't accept he's not a public person a public personality because his face was on. TV He must be a public persona and therefore east fair game to be covered including clean. All the stuff he did in high school is fair game. Except he's not he's not a public person and this guy doesn't doesn't understand it not only that he doesn't understand that yes the mob did come for for him. He can't accept the mob came for him either. The reason he can't is because he was on social media before all this happened and he was mocking the idea of cancel culture. That cancel culture doesn't exist that the the whole idea behind counterculture isn't real and yet time and time again. We see that it is real where the left-wing mob tries to get someone taken down taken taking out removed from a job removed from the town square where they can speak truth to power. They're not allowed to anymore. They get thrown off social media. They get thrown off a TV. They get thrown off. Radio Radio They're silenced the silencing of the person is cancelling them. But what's more. He laments that there was no union at the Des Moines Register the head of a union member. I believe I would have been more effectively. Had more effective advocate for myself. The day I was fired. The Department of Justice approved a massive merger between Gannett and Gatehouse forming the largest media corporation. The Nation the gatehouse merger will result in a historic monopoly over local news media. And we'll properly will prompt widespread layoffs. This is a progressive Calvin. He rejects cancel culture. He thinks people who are punished by the social media mob deserve it. He doesn't think he deserves serves it so he doesn't think he was cancelled. Even though he was anything's unionism would be great. progressivism leaks into this because it is is the logic of an insane asylum. progressivism does not make sense. We're we're still in the early days of shaking out the doctrines voteless and this is part of it. Unions unions are good unions would protect him. Cancel culture isn't real but he got cancelled but he wasn't really cancelled. And what did he do. He turned the social media. Mob Bob against a guy who just wanted beer money and when he got so much he donated it to a local hospital for the children. A guy was literally raising money for children's hospital an errand. Calvin turn the sights of a newspaper on this private citizen and now justifies. It wasn't really a private citizen. He got on TV therefore he must be a public persona. So I guess that e I mean by Aaron Calvin logic anyone who appears on the nightly news has the right to a media rectal exam because a their public figure now they've been on TV. That isn't a standard. Anyone should uphold the fact that this kid justifies work. In that way suggest we're still going to have a long way for the media to go. Oh before it begins to recover. Its own credibility because the media has lost its credibility over stuff like this over reporters like this. The media media has real biopsies. The media has real problems in it affects their coverage of Mexico. It affects their coverage of the president affects coverage of private citizens. Who just happen to get a little bit of spotlight? They go after the sports star Dr in College. Who did something dumb on twitter when they were fifteen years old to try to ruin their career in the name of well? They're famous now. This is what we do to famous people. The media continues to affirm the idea that it loves to build people up to tear them down and now it's beginning to tear the media down and honestly I'm Kinda glad glad I was kinda shocked to see the story in the Wall Street Journal It's a good one though irrelevant to those of us here in Georgia a came out over the weekend. The headline if you can manage waffle house you can manage anything. Running a twenty four hour a budget diners glamorous clamorous but it forces leaders to serve others with speed stamina and zero entitlement. This is a piece by Sam Walker in the Wall Street Journal. He's he's a former reporter and editor the Wall Street Journal and the author of a new book the Captain Class A new theory in leadership and he basically studied lead waffle house and his kicking off point was of a young lady from Georgia who Who headed to college? Decided to get a job at Walmart Let me read you some of this. I it's very very very interesting here. Oh what does it take to be a successful waffle house manager. Speed for one thing to meet the goal of serving every customer eight minutes or less the wait staff doesn't bother punching eighteen orders into a computer they write them down in shorthand code. They read them aloud to cooks the cooks remember them by arranging condoms on empty platters. I always wondered about that. A face Lisa mustard packets signifies a pork chop for example if the restaurant is busy or short-staffed managers dive in the company's training program teaches them how to analyze is profit and loss statements but also prepare them to clean and wait tables now.
