This is Who We Are
"The Sixth Session and Buddhism. We say that there's two approaches the intrinsic and method basically and. That's basically what you know what we do when we when we do session is important to to realize the one. It couldn't be another way. You know this is the way the life is. And that's very important is Asian. Most people are trying to change those things that can be changed before they even the sun. How those things work out of session is simply witnessing and engaging in what is until it is seem what is real what is always here. What is can always be relied on? And then seeing those things in terms of behaviors practices that we do on on a daily basis that either enhance our lives and the lives of people around us or they create suffering in terms of living fairly simple in terms of back. You don't really need to get too complex with the way of awakening. Basically recognize awakening is like this and I say like this. And it's not fixed seamless and Continues throughout life right from the beginning right through to the end. One of the great realizations is the realization is always been like this. And why am I looking for something else? That's where the process comes in. Why am I looking for somewhere else? Nowadays when you when you read books see self-improvement videos etc is always a movement from this place before you even see what it is towards something. That sounds better. Health Happiness Financial Stability Invulnerability. Many things like that those movements great. We end up with goals in our lives. Goals can be great but they can also obscure what we already have and they can become a disease so if I say. I want to be enlightened. Then that's great but if he stays on the level of goal something that is going to happen in the future. There's going to be a problem. It needs to be actualized thus where we have a thing called practice friend of mine who is Koreans N. Teacher News. Also Carpenter was was making wall one day. A news cut in about forty studs. Use going isn't it amazing? Just this until you realize just cut forty stood short but you know this is aspect of engagement. They can't stay on the on. The level of the theory is the engagement. You know what's engagement I might in the right. Measure measure it twice. Check after you cut one. Is that right okay? Then settled do it and in terms of living is very similar. Thing is what is practiced. And then make sure it's maintained the eightfold path which is basically a thing. A thing that tells you how to practice in life. Is that way you see things as they are. Do you see things as they are. Come on you see things you see you see on the good things. Okay then the second part of that is due I. How do I go from that? We'll then I intend to maintain. Do you intend to maintain meantime recognize what you like to do instead? And then putting that on one side and then the third one commit so then says right speech that release committing to now once those three are in order and fairly easy to do the others and then the debt the ones practice really is on how much you really looked into that and see how much you need to do it. It's like nowadays people say well. I'm going to take these vows to these promises. But they don't mean much because their accident making down a look good but don't really intend to to do it. You know vowed really is contract contract. You know wet weather is Consequences if you if you don't do it you know really that's that's the thing is if say. I'm going to do something and then do it and that's very important but it doesn't mean I'm going to do it for somebody ads and means I'm going to do it period. I'm going to do it now. If you can do this this aspect of commitment I am going to do it no matter what. It doesn't matter these no clause in this legal contract saying that. There's an escape clause. I'm going to do it then you'll do it. Nothing in this world will stop because he won't be a matter of circumstances. I'm GonNa do it all right so when the difficult circumstances comes up. I'M GONNA do it nowadays. I hear so much as well. I can't do it in my in my lifestyle. Why why Connie now this way you come back to. The intrinsic thing is intrinsically. You know as as we are we are Buddhist. We are awakened but as maybe watch that out of your mouth but it is a little races back that up a little bit. Which is nice. You know we are awake. Wants to us. We've we are wake as much as we can be awake at this moment in time. We called the anymore way than we all right now because this is who we are. This is what life is so if you recognize that pot then you also recognize that you are doing it. There's nothing else beyond this point than being awakened and be awake to. It doesn't mean that it's going to turn out in a certain way. Ludlow people say well. I can't practice 'cause I'm busy I'm serious. I mean you bet you've heard yourself say that right but how can you stop being yourself awakened to whatever it is the staff? I remember two things from my Zumra. She and I'm going to quote from all over the place because I don't want to quote. He's all people but I will. He Said said to me one day when it was hard he goes tension. You know when it's hard it's hard. Gee thanks but can you really say that to you so this is the way it is. It's hard right now there any excuse that no but there is one thing is that it will be done. It will be taken care of to the best of my ability. It will be lived through to the best of my ability myzone row. She T- to use him as a as an example K. Came over from Japan and fifty six or seven. I think it has you know. Correct me if I'm wrong. What is close and came over with a hundred dollars in the suitcase? And now this this is. This is a very monolithic story. I'm telling you a lot more to it than this. And so then he started doing all kinds of things to what his mission was to transmit. The dumb and many of us have done things. The similar had a small amount of money. Invested made all kinds of things happen. You know which is a very wonderful thing but then you put another level of difficulty on the which is he's Japanese after World War. Two and how people treated the Japanese after World War Two sometimes a houseboy. People elevate my Zimny Roche's righteous dude. Put we put them up and down. But then just like us have feelings but they do and use that ingredients. He one of these ingredients was people say he was an alcoholic binge drink but it didn't stop it from for teaching and doing stuff like that for anyone that stood. It'd be all you had to do is recognized you drink. Don't drink with now. And then the teachings would come in. You would love those things but he made it happen. He was like you made and this. This is the reason I use these stories. The stories of all of these massive. When they were they were they were great people and special in that way so of elevated themselves. Some of them putting themselves down depends on who you look. They will like they had ingredients but the main thing is in the in their own in their own heart is. I'm going to do this. There's no excuse now. And then to use the president of of the of the old people again us the meaning of color the press. They saw it this way I can to. They met precedent you know. Can I manifest this in my life? And of course wasn't that question came up. Can I yeah? I will this this thing. Cobb I will. I'll do whatever it takes remember Halfway halfway through my you know my basic training with Zuma Rocha about eight years in a so seem like it was very long sessions. Probably every every other month of that time and then being very very active with all the all the things to make sure that the center worked and I remember going to Koreans then Senator and here in this phrase from an old Korean master which meant with the mind of compassion. Only go straight ten thousand years and I just remember having to sinking feeling ten thousand and then so. They came up familiar like well. What are you doing now? I'm doing this. What would you be doing ten thousand years? I'd be doing this still dealing with this. The the radiance of this world would still be teaching me on a momentary basis and still be interacting with people completion lack of completion. It's always those elements in our lives and it'd be living ten thousand years. Is this moment in time you know does. It doesn't matter how long it takes did a lot when I began to finish dog but do we ever get done this thing Paul completion. You know we we put. We put the Buddha in a complete position quite often. I know I did. You know he was the one used the Xm great and all that stuff but the Buddha had problems. He had difficulties. I quite often mentioned those and really into it today. But the thing was that The work of the Buddha continued right down to the present day. Two thousand five hundred years. What is the key to that you know? Basically one teaching in response one teaching in response to whatever comes at any given moment no master-plan and also It'll be done. Nothing will get in the way no matter how difficult it is. You don't have to worry about how it is down the road how it's going to be if you can take care of this. There's more there's more a chance to be able to take care of that people. Worry about Karma how they're going to be reborn and stuff like that. I just have to live idea what is going to happen. Then the thing is if you can take care of this then you can take care of that. And what's the reward? Was the reward of practices going to happen. Late liking caddyshack rather eat. You runs into the Dalai Lama's Cabbie for many tells them to use a set ninety gets off you're going to be reborn in so well. Bill Murray goes. It's that important to you. Somebody promises you something. You want that reward. Now the reward is in how you live. If you live with no regrets you live to the Hilt. You live fully. What else. What else could you have in? This will the rewards the secondary. Is that this story of Mr Mr Size Horse. Maybe maybe we'll use the one about myth mountain century instead so there's a fire mountain center and then she should call up and said and we survive and yours you'll practices really virtuous because you survived the fire and then the floods come along cup. Everything he was just like just not person. You get swamped and you get the you got the punishment after it too. It doesn't matter whether you're rewarded or punished. You know he was just joking but it doesn't matter if you're boiling point he's like in the heart Sutra. It says completely clearing misfortune and paying and pizza people think than will any misfortune is going to disappear. Nothing's bad is going to happen to. You have to remember this if if the Buddhist said this. He's a hypocrite and tries to kill him four times. Misfortune know misfortune is not misfortune. It's I will go through this and I will go through this to the best of my ability anytime anyplace then. It's not misfortune. It's life if you've got that kind of mind. Nothing gets in your way. I will do it you know when I was a kid I would go to my mom and say I can't do it and she said there's no such word as you never know if you can until you do it and that's an amazing things see if it can be done and it may be beyond you always remember the rest of the universe is also practicing with US whenever we chandler sent you being numberless. I've out to save them. You have to remember is working in the direction to. It's not just a one. You not the messiah say saving everybody and maybe you are a let the world help comes from anywhere know so. Let's let's raise this this moment in time Maccabi us. What the ultimate does again. It's not something on the on the Alta like booder it's not again given our obedience to the L. Dead Dude which most people think it is is raising their aspect vast empty no hindrance so that can be remembered and carry it into the rest of our daily lives are all too then can be in terms of words. I can do it. This is the life of the Buddha. Everyone you meet is the Buddha every interaction you have is an interaction of the dumb all the truth. You can raise it up instead of the usual. I'm just shit it's killing killing time. Raise that up you know it's like Jack Kerouac who I really admire. His is attempt to do this Sutra and he did the scripture golden eternity and in that. I'm going to cut a bit out but yours the greatest gift you can give you a brother or sister is the reassurance that he or she is the golden eternity. The realization of this will bring tears to your eyes so the realization of this will bring tests year. Is You know we have this right from the beginning but we overlook it while we're looking for something else looking for this this great enlightenment which nobody's really told us what it is and how it how it works slight the Unical. Somebody says just round the corner so the looking around the corner we go running. Somebody says it's in the parking lot we go in the parking lot. I said you should sit all night and day. We do it eventually. We just got so tired of looking elsewhere we breath and then we see that this will the life that I have lived since beginning with time. It's an amazingly valuable thing. You can't put a value on tremendously valuable. But we look for something else. That's very disease but as muster chef community said you know But because of our upside down views we fail to see it again. The main ones when I become when mind settles down when people start getting me some respect it will be hold your breath this time anything. Can you swallow all of your ingredients? How as you are with all of your suffering and everything. Can you really swallowed? The this is the life of the Buddha where faith comes in. But it's not faking something health you know. It's just I think this this is what my life is. I may not see it but I'll do it because something is calling us home. We recognize something. You put whatever label you want on. Something is call in his home. We get we get educated for you know at least eighteen eighteen years or so to to differentiate to split atoms to be critical to make ourselves separate from others. And then what do we do after that? We want to go home. We won that intimacy. You want to return back to our true nature that we had little kids where we didn't differentiate so much now we can never go back because we've learned we've learned differentiation. It's important we have to know the difference between Shit and shy Nola. You know we do in terms of our lives but at the same time is that that basic desire to return home is the process in itself but home is already here so again. It's the returning in terms of practice of really illuminating. Where we stand rather than where we will be nice kind of interest in how many of you have read. Read the oxygen page. So senior pitches goodsell. There's some there's some context ten pitches. Everyone has a circle on it. Yeah and it doesn't matter whether it's the beginning stop or it's the or it's the end picture. Every one of them circle that is the key to to to the entire oxygen and pitches cam not going to tell any secrets. I'm going to leave out uncovered icon do that. It doesn't matter where we are in this process. We complete really needs to be seeing. That really needs to be seen. Couldn't be another way. That's Arca completion. Mean say. I'm not just saying it in an an an intrinsic way we still contain this whole universe. No matter where we are the only thing that we really have to lose is the the the ability to attract ideas and beliefs and trust in them. Is You know. It's mainly an empty now process now. Togan says probably the most profound teaching of the process of Of Meditation which is for the time being now. This is very important for the time being for the time being ever forever put thoughts on one side. Why because we're really good at masters of thinking you know. We can work at all kinds of fame. But we're not good at being. You know I mean just just look at nowadays most of the most of the entertainment we have takes us away from the place where we are all we can allow it to take away from the place that we are very driven to fill up that space and I am concerned about the current generation. The so much living in say technology and ideas notions and very little actually Immersion in in being doing that's where the world can really come in. That's the thing that really teaches us. Human beings that interaction many people getting alienated simply because of not experiencing directly the world. And all that. He's coming in on a momentary basis. That's that's that's an amazing gift that we have. We'll do. We really appreciate that Paul again. That's the CAN. I really sit still in the midst of this or my driven by my own impulses inhabit to go and look at all of all of this other stuff yeah intrinsically were fine you can. You can get lost like that but so much suffering comes from not being able to to sit still in the midst of those those impulses if you can then an amazing strength comes out about an amazing flexibility the will be with you for the rest of your life so again we have this intrinsic pop with their already now. The main thing is to stay that. How do we do that again? That's what the practices are. Sit still in the midst of it. And then in time what happens is then the emphasis on thinking is dropped. And then just allowing that being to to be there occurs and then beyond that it's important to interact and immerse and whatever's there so it's not always an observational quality. I am looking at that. All the guys likes being chewed on by amount in life. You you know this. There's that aspect of connection. We have that naturally to do something to take care of it as best we can. And that's why we have say work practice and we have wordpress because we need to do work. That's one aspect which is fulfilling wants out publications as the Word Salmon. The second part is doing nothing. Which is that is exactly. We're not doing something for something else is just the immersion in whatever. Is that so that will not hold it onto the observation. Quality which again is many of the inhuman activities. You can't observe you have to be in it you have to be doing and you see it. You see that in pieces of art you'll see it in and musicians playing you'll see that in performance you know. We quite often use that word. But they're engaged. There's nothing else that just in it. I remember seeing one of our track to drive it. You know just like a heads pointed points as look look at that concentration loss just like you know you don't just be the ball and this case he's being the tractor you see it you we recognize it but in the main. Is THAT NOWADAYS. The way the meditation is tall is observational is not interactive now with interactive. You never lose the place that you stand simply because you're not trying to hold on to a state of mind now. There's there's a call on that I think from the book of Equanimity says the the Buddha's okay so the awaken one's body of reality is like the vast sky so if you now just apply that to yourself. The awake one body is like the vast sky that stretches a bit and it's this functioning is like the moon reflected in water so that that's how a mind basically now when I say that that don't think the meditation is one thing that you hold onto a meditation state. You know so for instance. I've seen people drive off the road simply because they're being meditative but not interactive in that way. Is that an again. Just look at one's own mind is like when you when you when you deal with child then your mind goes ally right. Maybe you won't trust yourself to do. And then when when you somebody who is who is older maybe frail? Then your mind goes in a certain way and that way when you dancing then your mind goes in that way when you're repairing to watch than the mind goes that way if you try and make a Mayo pick zen state an overlay though something you're GonNa have. A problem and a lot of people will have problems in terms of of of say a Meditation Center in trying to do that. There'll be a pain because the mind wants to conform. Naturally to whatever's there you know mine doesn't like being fixed remember. When I went through my first I call on Mu since like a joke now but you know I I would focus like day and night on something you know and after I passed. I couldn't do that anymore. I just couldn't do it going. Just open buoying so I stopped doing that. And that was the star of letting things correspond to whatever's that and it's very important. The mind is intelligent. Say the mind. I'm not just talking about the brain. Buddhism mind is the whole thing so you look in the seat your subject object process of each sense Tho. Those are the what they call the lists in the heart Sutra. You know all of those things. They correspond to whatever's there. And then that's the aspect of natural practice. Where you can you can engage with people and in whatever way of life there in not appeal. I'm a Buddhist I've gotta hold onto. You know I won't kill these people won't steal from them rather than you know. Interact see who those people are. Maybe you should know so we have the function and now we're on the six. The six day you can experiment with the concentration. We'll get deep enough those places where you don't be you can concentrate. Do it try it. Extend you know. And then at the end of the end of session for instance see how you can interact with that kind of consciousness naturally without kind of go finish now. She's the I mean it's been going on for forty fifty years at least that's what happened. Just see if you can just extend that that that of of natural interaction into into other areas. And then you know. Another piece of advice is also. Don't think that session finishes tomorrow. You can use thought in a devious way which is put it in your mind. Lifts session doesn't finish until next Wednesday and then that transition between so-called session daily live Continues you put it into Paquin driving and then and then it begins to extend more more into your daily life which is which is the real beauty of of Practice this that. Eventually you recognize that consciousnesses South. You are the containable all of these activities. All of these states of mind is not that you have to put something else on and it will really do that. That transition into daily life needs to occur. And if you do it repeatedly at some point you recognize the Yukon escape this no matter where you are and if you play that game it's fun. How can I escape this? They are for the George. How can escape patrol guys giving you speeding ticket? Which happened to me four weeks ago? How can I escape? Thank you officer was be but you know life is exactly what it is. How how do I live to the best of my ability when dog talks about sincere practice? It's kind of interesting in the bottom. We don't talk about deep or shallow. What what what's an reason? We don't talk about well we do. Deep and shallow is basically is that. There's no metoo there. How do you gauge that? We don't judge deep and shallow. What's most important? Is One sincere practice on? What what sincere practice. It's not like. It looks like something this ballpark. No obviously but is that. Are you really dealing with what you need to deal with human being? Are you really facing up to that? Sincere practice as simple as that. It's not how you look anyway. Wants to time. I'll be doing my watch. Those blind people over there anything. You like me to address in toll for another ten minutes and if not finish please complacency is practice. You don't have to practice complacency no. I'm serious you know people say well. I gave up practice. We never give up practice. The reason I say that we practice something you know. Whether it's denial avoidance we practice these things and they occur. Now this is this is the key to say. The eightfold path is see things as they are. If you see things is the are you suffering is GonNa wake you up suffering release mechanism for change. You know it's not always a bad thing you know if you re and it's the same thing is that when you see suffering with people around you eventually you're going to be awaken to. I can do something here if you keep on looking at something at some point you become clear the reason it doesn't become clear as we look somewhere else that's the first oxygenating pitcher by the guys you know. He's the trace of the ox right here and he's like. This was one of those two prints on the ceiling. But but that's the thing is you have to deal with that. Nobody can do that for you. So he's complacent you being complacent put put to raise. Raise your standard there or lease keep looking at it because it's to jog you out of it at some point now when a when look. Edina mentioned suffering is the you have remember the in the Eightfold Path. The four noble truths that preceded the full path. The Buddhist says. There is the fact of suffering. This one here is a stock axle wheel which has got more of a of an internal thing Then he says there is a cause of stock axel illness or suffering. There's an end to it. And then he gives you how to do it. Which is the whole path. Now this is this is really important in terms of practices that you suffering a mechanism to chain for change. Don't cover it over so something's not quite right and again so friends like a weird word in English. She's got Judy Krisztian connotations which gets mixed with sin and all that kind of stuff you know when really. It's a mechanism you know. It's just like it's like the thing with the stuck Axa wheel. Is this certain things that you can do depending on. What kind of accident is the first thing is you? You can look and see if it if it's got a rock in it in his stalkers rock into the wheel. You look basically you look into your own major and then you see ways of actually turn in and so then. It is a mechanism for change. You don't need to avoid it like a lot of people do and and you have to remember again. Is the the Buddhist said that after his enlightenment so a lot of people's think well you know he was fine then he was in light? But why wasn't he fine? Why wasn't define still suffering people ever at everybody is? How can he be phrase that it goes on? I mean I don't do this just for myself. I'd rather be at the beach but it works. You know I mean this didn't work I wouldn't do it. Nothing we all benefit more. If we don't let's go to the beach we can waste turn their instead a serious but this you learn how to do it and then suffering is not a barrier is a part of life in which we we grow together. I mean it was neat. Somebody somebody came in and said how you doing usually doesn't happen. He's exposed again. We this is you know I mean we use these. These high flu was like Mahayana. Great vehicle we all the Mahayana. We practiced together the great vehicle. That's the great vehicle all of our pauses. Don't know how to say this. The great in the whole is that right something like that. We we make a greater greater bit. Yeah Sorry Guan some of its. Yeah six session question. What words but it's beautiful. I mean that's the thing with community is that sometimes. I'm all of the people a down and I helped them and the time down on people we have one another. Some people have practicing very diligently encourages me to do that by people all the time. We have these examples anymore and other. It doesn't happen just here but in our society and families to recognize that not just go well okay because so and so that really nice rather like what's going on here because we can lymph negatives as much as we can learn from positives and if there's that sense of we're in this together then it's important that we you know. I put myself forward to help somebody else and I say that. Because that's up to you. It's not like we do this. I don't know you do but I see what you've when you hear so anyway. It's not a matter of time. The important thing is the whatever time there is now is used that to the best of your ability thus what session is to gather the energy bring that in then the energy can be used in many different ways thank you.
Why You Mad
"Dad. was unimaginable crime. We believe something like that. What happened here? People dead all from the same family. This is the pike. Massacre. Listen to the pectin massacre on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. To four, what would you talk about on your on your podcast? Strand. Percents. Four. Fifty Shelf. So. What happened to yesterday's fifteen minute morning show people are really pissed off. We didn't have a nightmare I must say that it is it was the control unit that I used to record a show every day like in the middle of the fifteen minute morning show. It just shut off, but it looked like it was still recording. So I'm like, okay. I'll just let it go I didn't WanNa say anything and then when it was over I tried to recover it. The whole had to reinstall firmware formatted the hard drive. It did all kinds of crazy crap and so did not exist. Oh. So you're saying. Technically speaking it shit the bed. To bed. For the shower everything. All. Old, engineering firm I. In the fifteen minute morning show. Zumra we've got scary. FROGGY Danielle Gandhi and there's Garrett there's Day Brody I Brodie Hello Rob Huckabee straight nate's cameras on. From there. He came into my studio and he goes. Like give me the cut sign like okay. So he doesn't he doesn't WanNa talk or be seen on the Turkey. Minute morning show podcast I. Don't know. Hey, nate doesn't want to be seen something.

For that. Yeah I tried to forget that anyway. So we didn't have a fifteen minute morning show yesterday, but we did talk about things that make us mad. I love that. So. I mean I was kind of hoping that would have stuck because we had some great answers whatever I was mad about yesterday I'm not mad about today. So now saying it's over. We. Met about new things today. Sure. Okay Gandhi you start. Why are you? Okay. So my sister's birthday was yesterday and I had all of these super super fancy plants for her and one of them. Wise. I was going to blow up a bunch of balloons and just fill the area right site right outside of her room with them when she came out. So the night before I went in to blow up. All the balloons and when I tell you, I nearly blew out my cheek trying to blow up these balloons I couldn't get one to blow up not one balloon turns out apparently I bought the wrong kind and there's some type of super-duper heavy extra latex balloon that is good for water balloons not regular balloon. So instead when she woke up just through all of them at her The non blown-up balloon so I was upset about that. That's why you're mad. Don't have stuff. Look at Garrett he looks really pissed off. Why you know why Yuma? Well yesterday the podcast because of the behind the scenes people come to me listener wise going hey, you didn't post the podcast or it's wrong whatever. So kinda had to explain technical difficulties but everyone thought we were trying to pull the wool over people's eyes. But if you read the description in the podcast, I specifically said. An oldie. But Goodie sorry, we had technical difficulties. Here's the episode where we tried to get uncle Johnny on zoom. So people started. Going back and listening to the show they're like, well, they said they were going to try to get uncle Johnny on it was all ruse on the air one big lie but yeah so. Whatever?

Your It was from my mom's car. She doesn't need it anymore. She said, can I sell it? So I got like twenty five bucks for it's a cassette player anyway the guy emails me and says. The emails me and says, the face plate doesn't fit. I'm sending it back I want a refund. On sorry, send it back. Well, guess what the Prick set me back somebody else's face plate and somebody else's radio. It doesn't match pictures I sent him or the Sarah Number. So F you have to call Ebay now get my money back because he tried to pull a fast one Timorese? For getting merch back, that's how it works. You have to send them a refund on the shipping. And then the refund. Processes Scam. Tell you. You definitely. You have a legitimate reason to say, didn't get scanned scary. I have photo evidence not to work. But I'm just So. FROGGY why you man I'm not mad today. I'm actually don't have any reason to be pissed off yet, but the days early. Okay I have no reason to be mad scary why you mad I spent the greater part of yesterday trying to plan a belated birthday for my girlfriend where I wanted to get all her friends to go on a boat ride out of Tom's river where it's better, go down the Jersey shore a boat ride rather than sail from. New York because New York is like, okay we've been here. We live here. Let's go down there. Well, the pushback I got for this. All I can drive an hour and a half I can't do this. I'm like Oh my God it's a Saturday morning people why can't you just make the trip I'm talking paying for the thing just smile and say thank you. I see why you're mad. They've been stuck at home for the last five months. You think they'd want to get out of the House and go somewhere out of your house I'm so angry I want this to happen in the worst way and that's the way it will happen. Sounds like was pretty bad. It's the worst. Hey, what about you Daniel why you made I'm just mad because all the crickets are sold out at the pet store and I can't high bearded Dragon Tonka because I don't know if there's a quick at shortage for some stupid reason but I have to wait a couple of days for his damn crickets. So the all. Along with the supply chain as they call it. The mountains of crickets out here have I. If you guys noticed, this is the biggest summer we've had in a long time. The good news is that we were talking about this. The other day butterflies we have millions of butterflies. It's the most beautiful thing in the world I can't believe people are scared of butterflies. Butterflies, but we at least butterflies, but maybe you could feed butterflies to your your talk. So I don't. Be So tough to watch. Poor Butterfly. So those are the reasons were mad but back to brody brody has a legitimate reason to be mad. You sell a lot of stuff on Ebay how do you do really well with that? Yeah. Yeah. I saw a lot of stuff I clem clear. Not My garage during the pandemic just whatever have laying around whether it's clothing or electronics or Posters even other people's stuff like mine he's like, Hey, skier eighty dollars for this neutral at blender. Is that Okay and? then. Mommy the money here giving his. I haven't gone a selling spree myself. I've tons of stuff I, get rid of it. I just I don't understand the packaging and the shipping and that kind of stuff. The selling tight you gave away a road caster yesterday. I'm selling the twenty dollar radio so I can have dinner and giving stuff away. So you're a better man than I am I still A. Hey y'all God. So scary told us something earlier speaking of stuff brody has just laying around scary said and I need to know if it's true from you brody. Don't WanNa believe this but I don't. He said that you gave him a bunch of smart ones and other frozen food and he was rummaging yesterday and discovered that those smart ones expired in which year scary two, thousand, seventeen, eighteen, and nineteen respectively. Oh. Is this time They were frozen for three years. You haven't touched them. I don't I don't recall in there that long I mean I I may have I got him from the supermarket maybe they were old when I got him but more importantly and I need your guys opinion on this hold on, you may maybe right Gandhi may be old. I gave scary cozy shack puddings to keep in his refrigerator, and then during Brooklyn Boys podcast this week I hear. He's eating my puddings I asked him the store in his refrigerator don't. To be fair, you said as a storage feed, you would allow him to have one cup of cozy right. He was on, he said. He told me I have to left which means eight two of them. Oh I mean, and it's been a week. Been in my fucking free. Every day wrote it will take another smart one on or cozy shack or your brody is to have hey, you're you're you're frigerator is back on again why don't you go down to scary housing pickup thank you l.. Okay. The last time I went to scare his house. He says do me favor. Brody. Call me when you tended soy. So I can be ready. So I called them when I was ten minutes away I waited downstairs he texted me I got some according to do you're going to have to wait and kept me outside for forty minutes on his driveway. So I'm not going to his house and waiting I'm his servant. He. He was nice enough to store your frozen foods I mean it does take a lot of effort to put it in his empty freezer. It's over. dammit. Cramped probably, not good anymore. I would eat the crap. Yeah. You can have it scary decrepit. Record. I I wish I could come up with a reason why I'm mad. I'm not mad good. Doesn't awesome. Feel like I'm left I'm left out. Oh. I know why you're mad. You're mad that. The unedited version of WOP or even the Wettin danger of what? I just think that you know we are so careful in the radio world because we have these transmitters we still use. Most people I don't even know if anyone's listened to the transmitter anymore because we broadcast to a transmitter to an antenna that people can receive on radio we are regulated by the government and we are told what we can and cannot say we're totally Cana cannot play as far as you know words and suggestive. Thoughts and whatever and songs. If we were just on digital, we can say whatever we wanted like here for instance, on this podcast. We can say whatever we want. We can't do it on the radio. We're still held back by the FCC. It's the so. The idea of if we actually played wop on the radio of bunch of suits sitting in a room in Washington breaking down the exact. That we played on the radio is funny enough not worth the money but funny enough thinking about them describing and trying to describe what we played on the radio. Exactly I feel like we're living in the past well, anyway. So I heart radio we have these songs that we that we play up stations like all these markets, right? The one nine that system because we should take that word out of that song there. So now the whole country is playing his version of what he thinks is right. and. They take out the dumbest Shit and some some of these songs him shift doing. Especially when you see what they leave in some of the songs are like wait a second. That one guy must've missed this reference or has no idea what it actually means it is because they leave a lot of stuff in there that is really suspect foul, but then they bleed the word like drink. It's true I? mean. It's one guy who's I mean he's older than me I mean he's some old white man who's making decisions for our entire country in. Jesus he doesn't even understand what the macaroni noises reference. So he just left that Martin, but then he took out. That's my favorite part of the song. Akron noise. Croat's. Macaroni in a pot brody, you know what that is so. I'm to urban dictionary in a few minutes. You what's behind you on the shelf? was on the shelf today. Oh. My favorite restaurant Carman's is now jarring their sauce. So they sent up a case to the radio station and I just got the. House because he took him home for me. So I gave him frozen food. He gave me the tomato sauce. So thank you Glenn eeking speaking of Glenn at car minds. Are you know he does a a cooking show with Gloria Gainer? Singer. and. So and I'm a big Fan of hers you WanNa. Do it. So I'm talking to them today we're we're going to do a cooking show together. Is the name of the podcast I will soon be. The crickets you wanted. Oh. My Gosh Dr. Crickets joke UVI.

First Impressions with Daija
"To Four. Would you talk about on your on your podcast? Stranded percents. Fifty. Sixteen minute morning Shell. All right the fifteen minute mornings I'm sorry. The fourteen and a half minute morning show podcast. We could just we could redo that opening and make it shorter and have a fourteen minute and forty five second podcast. It's up to you, guys. It hasn't okay with the link. Speaking of length share of the text message you got today, froggy! Which one? Grew Oh text message. Hold on a second I'll pull it back up. It says dear froggy. I grew three inches in two weeks. Would you like the same results? Click this link to order now. Who? Is it heightened? Has, all take it. No, I think it was. Thirty. Four. Gandhi doing a larger penis, you can do it that way. I'll take a larger penis or three inches which would make me buy three. To question, I mean we. We could all use that energy. You know what I'm saying. Good number one who the fuck. Up for something like that number one I did wife. Number two does not really work like. Are People really taking these penis enlargement pills? Jarrett into work with you. Brodie they work. There's not enough pills for me. On purpose. What does it? What is it in the background? Behind you brody Oh that all thing. That's just my surfboard. was always the other day. It's always been there. Wasn't. Guys let me let me let me open the room. Okay, so here. We are the fourteen and a half minute more podcasts. We've got froggy. We've got Danielle. We've got scary straight. Nate, Gandhi and there's Garett Thursday. Brody and our best friends smiling Steven from to Philly. Hi Stephen. Good with a beard. And revered. All right so Do. You want to set this up with what we're doing with. Deja, yes, so smiling. Stephen has while he's getting a little bit of vacation. Rightly so I think we all deserve it and he needs to train a replacement somebody to run our show on his end while we're on vacation, so he found Asia. Who by his account is a great board? Op knows her stuff, but doesn't know the show so. She's learning the show, but at the same time doesn't know the show in that. She's never seen s except for you. Elvis so Steven Reich it upon himself to say okay, we'll. What do you think all of the CAST members look like? And so she came up with some descriptions of what she thinks. We look like based on what we sound like. Okay, before we get this going because I think this is a brilliant idea, stephen, you have total faith in Deja and her ability to not mess up our show more than we already messed it up. Yet running it all day today, so it's been sounding perfect and she's been doing a fantastic job. I've just kind of been in that. Know in the driver's car when they have do. The driver says about like emergency brake I'm there just in case I need to hit that break, but I haven't had to hit it at all, so she's doing well. Good okay by the way. Brody says he can't hear Stephen. Can you hear Stephen nut? He's not going to be. Here Gary, unfortunately, because this is configured. Yeah, sorry. Why why why figures away? Cards run. You're both talking at the same time. What is going on here? Nope, Garrett, can you hear me? Yes, I can hear you. I won't be able to hear Stephen because he's on a different program because he's on a different program, it has to come through a different source so us. Brody and I will just sit there and nod like we're listening, so it goes well. One of were recording the zoom room. But they can't hear brody or Garrett. Deanna can't hear you for. FROGGY is froggies picking up all the audio from microphones, not a problem. The only difference okay is brody and Garrett will be able to hear zumra audio, which is Deja and Steven because they're in the room. So Deja, my apologies us, and we won't know no. No, no, we'll. So, so brody and Garrett I apologize, but you can listen to it later. This is kind of cool. All right Stephen. Is it time to how do you want to do this? Are you going to introduce us today? We we by the way guess what she looks like Gandhi did anyway. Do you want to remind us what you guessed Deja? Look like yes I think she has black hair, Brown skin, maybe a little bit darker than me, but not too much I think she has a really pretty smile, and she seems very bubbly like she's always smiling. Just good energy. Okay, okay. All right, so, Steven! It's up to you. Whenever and however you want to do is Do this in. Invite Deja to the Zumra shouldn't. Shouldn't he tell everybody what her answers were before she? He brings her in to see us or. No because we're looking at her, I oh okay. Thank. You scary, never seen us. Offering Sounds good all right here we go. Cisco let's switch places all you. This is exciting. We've never seen. Days. You're so beautiful I mean we sh. objectify people, but let's do it. Looks disappointed. Helix disappointed in us. Still Happy Okay so okay. Here's how deja describes the quake, so we got that out of the way, so you described. You don't okay. Don't acknowledge who you are and I'm describing. Hear a dog barking. DEJA. Is that your dog? Whose dog is that city? That was Brodie so data. You described froggy, a short on the Chubby side with Brown hair correct. Yeah! FROGGY yourself. I am six foot tall six. Wow! A Little Chubby To lose a pound or two, but no, I'm not over. Shut up. Here really does not. David is it all the more reason we should be judging people all right so Danielle you described as short red hair, blue eyes, pale skin, say hello to Deja Danielle. Collarbone hair, so you're kinda less. She was called the only thing she really didn't get. Was the Blue Eyes I have brown eyes, so she was kind of course. I'm only five foot two on a good day, so you know. Okay. I think by process of elimination DEJA. You figured out. You described as Brown. She has brown skin black hair. She's short, not petite, but big BOOBS. Ghandi's. I think you're right about everything. Except that big boobs, I got nobuko Danielle got all the bullets I'm jealous yes. Days are my boobs are bigger than everyone's boots on the show, but they're big old man boobs. All right, so Deja you describe. As average looking college student, and he carries a book bag around I. Do you want to explain exactly what is? What does this you're describing? Not Not, really even a nerd like just that like busy guy in the city at city. One of those bags I go across your shoulder just like. Carrots. And you're! Pretty much. So that straight mate and he's leaving, he's. He's not going to cut his hair. In the year, twenty twenty decided looks like a mad scientist. Description just a little bit like how I picture you to my head, just a little bit. See. Every looking. Last by the way we average. Very every. Day Jesse. No one thinks nate is more attractive than nate rather way you just need to. LUSCIOUS! Now now, deja finally our favorite response from you.

Mix Dj I can't spend so so Dacia tells about you. Why why do you want to work in this this this world that we're working in what what attracts attracted you to radio in media, and I just like the talking I love Music I. Guess That is pretty much sums it up in a nutshell. It's good reason I won't be worked there. How long have you worked at IHEART IN PHILLY? Since November I just graduated college and graduated from simple and May. so yeah I did radio there and just kind of something I always like to do. Well congratulations congratulations to us and.

#593: The Questions We Didn't Get To
"Hey welcome back to the event selling podcasts the longest running sales training podcast as we are in the middle of a corona virus disruption and. I'm glad to have with me on phone. I'm on the phone. The guess because it sounds like you're on and on so on my bad headphones we are doing or stream. You're doing a remote recording of course because we're afraid of each other and being in saint ruined each other so we do we do when we record. We sit six feet apart.

We're going to talk to you Friday and start to tee up what you need to be doing now to get ready for the opening of the country because if you wait until the country is open to get ready you're already behind and so we want to see you.

If you're on our email list you probably have already seen and There's a link there that kind of lays out the process and everything but if you are not on our email is for some weird reason go to advance selling podcast dot com okay. Also we had one couple of weeks ago and we had a really nice outpouring of questions on it and there were a couple of questions. We didn't get to that we want to talk about today and if you've registered than you probably got an email back and we want your questions for tomorrow but these are kind of carry over leftover questions from last time so Brian. Do you have wanted to do the first one that will tag team I do. So we're GONNA talk about. We talked about a few of these. We're not going to go through those again. But if you were going to a very similar thing This coming Friday so warm up here is what is really good. Question should individuals and companies try to maintain their existing fail strategy muckraker possible or take time to create a new one should individuals and companies try to maintain their existing sales strategy as much as possible or take time to create a new one. What do you think about that? One Mr Color Blind in black and white so I did a black and white may can hang. Thank you thank you question. Thank you person. I don't have I don't have who rose and the question I'll take a stab us down. Well of course I knew exactly. It's it's a trainer trick. I always tell people when he gets stuck in front of the room. All you do is you. Let's go to question whether you guys think it's a great when you don't so first of all pullback for second I think you should always be retooling. Your sales strategy always now. I don't think you should be scrapping it and starting over but I think you should constantly be retooling whether there is a pandemic or flood or fire or death or anything bad in your life or whatever all the bad things you should always be retooling. Your sales strategy always In My side hustle business refereeing football in the NFL. There's not a team coach or player that isn't constantly retooling their processes in our strategy constantly. They're never sitting still Santiago's worked for me for fifteen years. I'm gonNA keep doing it. None of them. Not even the ones that you know that when a whole bunch of super bowl champion Jabs none of them do that so I answer is you should always do. This has nothing to do with that. It's unrelated you should always be a regionally. Now take the time to create a new. One is the one part of the question I want to hang on here. Created new one. I don't know that you need to create a new one in terms of like with scrap the whole thing. Some businesses have had to do that because of the business that they're in the most notable ones we all hear of are the people that make gin and vodka who switched over to making hand sanitizer. That's a full on shift that's temporary it's just temporary in part of it's out of the goodness of their heart to help the country not other stuff so I don't think you should create a new one. I do think you should look in. Say What have I learned from this whole event? That's positive that has taught me something that I can end. Blow up carry on down the road that makes sense so a for instance would be in our world if we've gotten if bill and I've gotten all of a sudden pretty good at doing zoom meetings and we're realizing we can recreate a pretty good experience. Maybe not as good as live closer than we thought. Now we can say. Hey I could actually be virtual training zoom. You know that's an example or maybe that wasn't my strategy six weeks ago now it is but it doesn't mean that scrapped all of our content. We haven't changed the whole way we think about was. It's not a wholesale change. The way I read this was not should I create a new business but should create a new strategy is at the meeting that I had a couple of things. I agree with all of yours too and I had a couple ads here one is. I think we have to as we're looking at read retooling reinventing as you say. We always have to be doing that. But if you're not doing it today for the next six months or the next year or even the next thirty days then I think you're missing an opportunity to reinvent appropriately and that is what is the market need. What does the market need today? And I think we have to be careful about and I've heard this in the last two weeks you know. Let nobody buying in. My customers are kind of out of business right now. They're all closed up. Well that's not really true. We don't really know that. And Yeah of course. If you're in the if you sell to cruise lines probably going to have a tough six months. Manana End I saw where cruise line bookings for two thousand twenty one or twenty twenty one. Were off the charts high because people expect it to be over. Then they want to go out. They've got money to spend so some of this might be short lived. I think you have to say what does my market need during these times number two. I think you have to consume thought leaders. You have to look at. What are the experts saying? About how businesses will change. Don't take everything they say. FOR GRANTED. And don't take it as truth but put a lot of things into your brain and start to say you know. I like what Tom Peters said. I really liked what Brian Neal said the man. I really liked. What bill cast. And they'll say that but listen. Listen to some thought leaders in your in your world in your industry listener Brian. I listen to others and start to create a plan based on what you're hearing if somebody says you know what all the banks are going to fail and you say thanks aren't gonNA fail. That ain't GonNa happen then. Don't worry about that when you've gotta use your judgment but I would say put as many thought leaders in your ear as you can right now. Listen consume and make your own conclusions while but Conclusions on that your own conclusions. Yeah make your buy in everything you hear at all no. I think we've learned. We've learned that unless you. Let's thank you to make sure you pay attention to as you're doing your next plan six month plan. Let's say is there's going to be severe economic scrutiny. Scrutiny scrutiny to what gets bought nearly flip scrutiny and day babe so there's going to be a lot of scrutiny when a company gets ready to to spend money because it was this way back in the crash of two thousand eight. It was an it wasn't that they didn't it's every every expense was scrutinized through the filter of this. Is this going to make us? Money is going to save us. Money is going to be economically beneficial for us or we just buying it because we buy it every year. I think there's GonNa be a lot more scrutiny. So for you as a sales professional. You've got to make sure that your sales process is true too. That is congruent with that. And if you don't have a part in your sales process where you talk about the economic value of what you sell. You're going to be shunned because people are going to say. Well you know what they one hundred hundred grand for that and I'm not able to make the connection between what it's going to save us or make us over does not gonNa do it. You'd better get really sharp on your sales process. Especially that little section in economics I would also add. I just read a Lincoln Post from getting David Duke here in Indianapolis in the part of a really cool startup I now I just avow David Duke knowing that wrong guy. That's right. We talked about him. That's right David doing this until younger. Little more put together. He people don't run when he walks in a room. People don't run. People are listening. Like what are they talking about? They're gonNA Google David Duke. They're gonNA find a young kid from Indianapolis with a startup. Company called medicine. And they're gonNA find the other. David Duke fills docket about but he forwarded something today linked in. I can't find it right here. My fingertips I don't think I can. That was really great. Essentially it was talking about for lack of a better term justifying or defending the spend of your products with a with a customer. Another words if you if you sell. Software and software Is under scrutiny? Bill saying which it will be is your main point of contact have enough good evidence to defend the position to keep your software when he or she gets asked by their CEO CFO or whatever or even if you're selling the CFO the CFO have enough you know and or if you're talking to the CEO do you have enough information quantitative and qualitative info. That will help you defend your position to say you need to keep this on board or software going. That's a great thing for salespeople to get good at right now economic evidence economic. So that's the save that's to save a client. Yeah gets to renewal and also to generate a new client. Because at some point the the money gets tight and personally. I think everybody says I think we're going to head into recession. What you talking about already in one. We are in a recession right now. Yeah Yeah for sure. And the question is it will probably end up being a depression or somewhere in between a recession and depression and again lots of millionaires and billionaires were created starting in the in depressions and recessions. This is not a bad thing. It's just you got to change your habits. You've gotta gotTA tighten up your skills a little bit so that you can sell during these times. It's also funny. People say we're in recession like okay like Thanks for telling me 'cause it doesn't matter it just doesn't matter you just have to worry about your deal your customers and doing what we've always taught you on. This podcast is to think about good intention helping your clients and customers in whatever way shape or form you again and trading money for that and believing in abundance because it's still there even air quotes recession. All that means is we've gone backwards for two quarters. That's right math end. That that's kind of an opinion debatable. Opinion People think well maybe three quarters. Maybe it's one quarter. Yeah Yeah now you can get all hung up in the in the yes words around it. But here's the deal and maybe we can end on this if you have thought to as a we are all communicating and selling things that are valuable for our market and valuable means that either. Solve the problem that they have it avoids a future problem or it gets them to a new future. There's there's really three reasons people by and be to be so if you keep that in mind. The problems haven't gone away. They probably become worse. The all people still have visions and goals abolished. All those people still want to save money. WanNa earn money so if your product fits in with one of those three which I think it almost always will then. Don't worry about what we call it. Let's just go out and let's get our basics better? Let's work on our principles our foundation and let's prosper through this thing. Yep that's it gives people do as people in fact the vast majority of people do they just do fours looked to rethink your business. I mean come up that at anything and I know it's hard for people that are hearing this some view listening you like you've lost your job against furloughed or whatever you WANNA call it stockton. I get it it sucks. It does and even with unemployment rates. You're like Oh my God. The unemployment rate was shocked at thirty percent. No-one says the employment rate is seventy percent. Seven out of ten people have a job still. That's pretty good anything you know what I mean. Seventy percent pass completion seventy percent batting average. Seventy five people like my. It's really really good really good and so we have to keep things in perspective here keeps going just us. Sounds good so make sure you join us go to advance selling PODCAST DOT com up a section?

Hey guys I'm Whitney port and this is with with a lot of you may know me from reality. Tv and the reality is a lot's happened since the hills with wet is dedicated to having real raw and occasionally ridiculous conversations with the people who have had a profound impact on me. Life changing moments life-changing people because on with webbed very little is off limits. Hi Welcome to with wet. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that. Clutter and disorganization. Really stresses me out. I always feel a positive shift in my mood. When I take the time to get my work schedule slash to do list Organiz as well as get my house in order. Decluttering can cause a huge lift of stress off my shoulders. I'm thrilled to introduce you to my guests today. Courtney carver she lives by the mantra. Be More with less. She believes living with less. Clutter Business Stress and simplifying Your Life. Help make room to do. It's truly important to you. She is here to talk about project. Three three and the process of creating and maintaining a manageable capsule wardrobe. Here is Courtney Hi there. Hello how are you good? Thank you so much for coming on as you were telling me before. This is your second book. It is yes. Yeah so your first book was. My first book was soulful simplicity which was published the end of two thousand seventeen. Okay and then you talked about this project. Three three in that book and your publishers. Read like you need to do a deep dive into this right. Yes and this challenge takes over the conversation. No matter what I'm talking about wherever I'm talking about things. People are just super curious about it. Yeah so okay. So tell us what project three three three s because it is really really really fascinating. It's so simple. Yeah there are a lot of questions that come up when I talk about it. So I'll just give you the the brief overview yes fleet is. It's a fashion challenge. Minimalist Fashion Challenge. Where you dress for three months with thirty three items or less including I'm watching your face. Yeah crazy includes clothing jewelry accessories and shoes. Okay Oh my Gosh Whitney just passed out. I'm already sweating. But it doesn't include underwear sleepwear lounge wear so stuff you might wear around the house but never leave the house in Okay and it doesn't count workout clothes but your workout clothes must work out God at so if your Yoga Pants. Don't go to yoga anymore. But you like to wear them. Just count them towards the thirty three items So before everybody freaks out I just want to refresh and remind everyone. This is three months so as an only ninety days about that. You're experimenting you're trying this to see what you really want and need in your closet because so often we're just adding adding adding and then we're overwhelmed by all the decisions we have So for me I mean it's so hard to even like picture myself doing this. Just because so much of my life is about taking pictures and wearing things that are on trend in the moment and so it's so hard to think about limiting it to only thirty three items. I feel like there's this idea people are like in these days. There is such a fast fashion thing where people were at once. They get photographed in it. They posted on their social. And they won't wear it again so I think it's really fascinating that your urging people to really like declutter distress and realize that you can actually live with less. An in. A case like you're describing. Yeah really be an invitation to be more creative with fewer pieces. That's true that's really true. I know it would be really challenging for me. It is a challenge. So what prompted you to want to do this? Are you like a really organized? Slake curated less as more type person. I am so unorganized really believed. And that's why living with less serves me because I don't have to manage all the stuff. Okay so in two thousand six. I'll just kind of give you the back story. Yeah I was working in advertising sales just completely burnt out from life and work and the way I was treating myself and was diagnosed with Ms. I had like this really bad case of Vertigo and the teague and just felt terrible and I could brush off those symptoms from time to time prior to that but they all happened at once. Like tingling in my face numbness in my hands and that was my wake up call. That was my okay. Something's not working. Something's not working enough is enough. How far are you going to push this right? And so I really just pulled back and decided to eliminate as much stress as possible from my life. It started with really changing my diet and then looking at debt We were tens of thousands of dollars and consumer debt. I mean this is a long time ago. It feels like but decided to eliminate that stress eventually our house and my job went and really. Just reinvented my life. Your entire life my entire life and started trusting myself to know what is best for me not to say it's best for everyone but for someone like me. Living with blasts truly is better It just allows me to pay attention to people where I really couldn't before I was so scattered and like hanging onto one. Conversation for a few minutes was almost impossible at me. I didn't sleep very well. I just didn't take great care of myself because I was too busy. And a lot of people can relate to that like when do we have time for ourselves when everybody else has so many demands lays right so how did then it sparked. You'd be like oh I should clean house. Essentially how did you know that living with less was going to be the thing that you needed to do so I had no idea yeah? It wasn't the initial goal. The initial goal was eliminate as much stress as possible. Okay because so much of the research I did showed that with. Ms and other autoimmune conditions stress can really trigger relapses and exacerbations. So for me. It was all about stress reduction And when it came to the part where we're paying off our debt. I wasn't shopping because that was really focused on Saturday. Men and nothing was coming in the house when I started to kind of. Pay attention to the stuff in my house. Like I'd never really thought of clutter as stress but there is Zumra stressful. Not only is it just in the way and distracting you but at least for me it was always reminding me of my debt and discontent like why did I constantly need more more and more And I never felt better right. Will you feel better in the moment? 'cause you have that like instant rush of whatever it is those emotions of like excitement of newness of something fresh and excited to wear it and then that fades after you've used it once or twice and then you're back to square one again right exactly? Yeah it's never enough never know especially with clothing and closet stuff yeah. I didn't do my closet right away. I did the rest of my house. Oh Hey it was so much easier because I still was like. Won't shopping relieve stress for me? I never really put it together. That shopping really was adding a lot of strong So the reason that I tried this challenge is because I had simplified so much of my life but I didn't WanNa do my closet and I knew that the approach that I had wasn't GonNa work that I needed something kind of fun. Something I could be curious about something. That wasn't permanent. I wanted to try to kind of sample what it would be like without actually doing it. I totally get that. I mean that it feels like it would be too much to just go to the extreme because then it may be too overwhelming for you that you would just go right back into old habits exactly a- As am blue light lenses also you can take this really awesome quiz at home where you have personal questions about. What kind of shape you like. What kind of color you like. And then they will send you three to five pairs at home. You get to try them on before you make the full commitment to buy it. So it's so great makes shopping. Super Easy gives you lots of options and they just make it so accessible for you. This is a free program that you get for five days. So you basically have five days to try on the five pairs and there's no obligation to buy they ship totally free and they include a prepaid return shipping label. Another reason I really love Warburg. Parker is because they give back. They really care about their impact for every pair of glasses. Sold worby Parker distributes a pair of glasses to someone in need. If you didn't know almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses this means that fifteen percent of the global population cannot effectively learn or work which is crazy because glasses were invented seven hundred years ago so to try five pairs of glasses at home for free go to Worby Parker Dot com slash with wet again. That's where be parker dot com slash twit and now back to our chat there. I'm more McGowan founder. And CEO of career Contessa the largest career resource inclusively for women.

Contessa DOT COM. So you said that you didn't want to do your closet that you started with the rest of your house. What did you do? What did that clean out process? Look like in the rest of your house. It was several stages of decluttering so it started with just getting rid of the stuff that I didn't really notice or care about it all it was that easy for you just the easiest okay. I started. I didn't go into photo albums or like do the tough stuff. I just started with easy stuff. So for instance maybe basis that I never use more if I had duplicates like two sets of measuring cups I mean why right no need no need. But there were an spatulas. My God I had so many spatulas wire whisks because they're adorable and I wanNA them right right and as I got into it and started to really appreciate the space that I was creating and how I could feel it. Not just physically. Like in my spaceman mentally. I had more I guess. Focus and attention And that made me really curious about taking another pass so interesting anyone easier. Yeah it's like you must have been so in tune it must have had such a huge impact that you could actually feel it. You know because I think a lot of people would do like a little clean out and they wouldn't recognize how big of an impact it's really making on them like it obviously was really hindering. You from living your best life for you to feel that. Yeah and I think when we approach it in terms of like spring cleaning hm we don't notice it because all clean out and they wouldn't recognize how big of an impact it's really making on them like obviously was really hindering. Gil from living your best life for you to feel that yeah and I think when we approach it in terms of licks spring cleaning. We don't notice it because all we're doing is focusing on the task at hand. Just clean up everything or get organized START FRESH. You just fill up all the space again but for me. I had such a solid y on what I was doing that I had to pay attention. so it wasn't making a difference because I tried a lot of things in life. That didn't make a difference at this time. I was noticing. So is this helping if it is. I'm going to do more of it if it's not going to dump it and move on. Right. So how did you first approach the closet before you had this idea of project? Three three three or this was the way you approached it. That was because before. I just didn't want to let go of anything right. You Okay so you were one of the people that really really held onto things. Yeah so for people that are like that. I'm not one of them. I'm actually I do have a lot of stuff but when it comes time to clean out which do like once a month like it's very easy for me to just donate it or I don't want to get rid of it because that sounds harsh but to release it. So what would be your advice to people who have a really hard time getting rid of things. This is what worked for me by doing this challenge. So when you start it you get rid of anything you just remove it from your closet or wherever your clothes are okay so for three months. All of that access is out of sight and that separation proved to be really powerful for me so it wasn't just a separation of the stuff from my sight but how my heart was really holding onto that stuff changed as well So at the end of the three months when I went to these and I had boxes and boxes and stuff. Yeah and when I went I was like what like? I don't even need a phone and I didn't care about it. I didn't Miss It. My life was easier without it. I finally had some free time in the morning because it didn't take me so much time to get ready so yeah I would say. Try The challenge and just see for yourself Because suspect that at the end of those three months it'll be so much easier to let go because at first it's hard right. Of course I've done a similar thing where I've cleaned out so many things and then I won't even remember what I cleaned out and I'm like Oh my God the fact that I can't even remember what I got rid of means that it meant nothing to me that those things did not serve me in my life so when you approach this project. What were the types of things that you can besides just the categories like of the thirty three items. What were the things that you kept so I still do the challenge Aspen over ten years and I still dress with thirty three items or less. Every three months has it has served me so well. And because I'm presenting this idea to an amazing community of people and I want to show them that I'm not asking them to do anything yourself totally and again. I just really love doing it because every quarter I decide. What's going to be in my capsule wardrobe and then? I don't have to think about clothes shopping or anything out right and I know this doesn't suit someone like you who that's part of your lifestyle and your work but for many people it does because yes just thinking about it like what's on sale. Where should I go shopping? Do I need? It's just this constant never ending cycle until you would have stopped to it so for three months. I'm not thinking about it at all. And typically what will be in one of my capsule wardrobes of I just break it down by category This'll probably might freak you even more. So it's it's not that it freaks me out at all. I think that this is so valuable. I think like you said if I had a different career and fashion wasn't like a big pillar of my existence. I would one hundred percent find value in this and I think that it would suit me even now like it could be a creative thing for me like some sort of creative challenge for the majority of people whose existence does not revolve around fashion. This is very very valuable so you don't want us a thing that I could never do. This would never that. It doesn't work for me. Yeah so interesting because most people are already dressing with way less than they think. There's still choosing from a giant wardrobe. Well I find that too especially since becoming a mother I have. I'm using air quotes like a mom. Look which is just like a sweatshirt and jeans and it's kind of the same rotation of three sweat shirts and three pairs of jeans anyways so I feel like there is something subconscious that I'm doing. That's like this project without me. Even being aware of it I mean we wanna wear a favorite things right. There are obvious things that we always like are attracted to it. Okay so you were telling me what was part of the thirty three yes so for. Let's just focus on clothing. Yes clothing I might have like four bottom. So maybe pairs of pants and a skirt and then I'll have address so I'm GonNa try to do the math while here do you want me. They write it down while you're going to have five. Yes we'll have three pairs of pants yet one skirt and this is not a skirt of formula. I mean you can do whatever you why because some people love dresses and so they wear dresses every day. So maybe they need ten dresses right. She's from Bray. Okay okay. So that's five okay so then I would say. Let's say two jackets. Hey Seven and understanding about collection like a puffer best. Okay so are we up to eight now and then the rest is going to be mostly top so sweaters and shirts okay but not up to thirty three but right. We've that for a minute. That's fine question mark. That's fine because I think my total on clothing right now is about seventeen item no way but because the rest are just accessories shoes all have. I think I have four pair of shoes. Got a pair of Platt's a pair of sneakers a pair of winter boots and hair of like heeled boots. Yeah and then for accessories. I've got I think seven but I'm just GonNa try to do a mental calculation here. I've got sunglasses a purse A tote bag a scarf and then where I live. I need hat and gloves and I know there's one more thing but I'm not thinking of what it is so okay let's say they don't count no socks underwear BRAS. Don Correct right okay. So whatever's leftover is. How many shirts clothing comes out to be about seventeen or eighteen and the rest of them like the fifteen are accessories and shoes and in the summer. I don't need a hat gloves winter coat and so I might have more room for other clothing idolize. Oh Hey that's amazing so when you're doing this when you're in like the third month you start to get sick of what you have and you're ready for something new. How do you deal with that? It's so interesting because I don't don't make and in the very beginning so for the first three months. When I wasn't shopping I did have a lot of those feelings like I'm bored with my wardrobe. Always get that feeling when I had a giant wardrobe. I'm bored I'm always bored and I have a giant wardrobe okay. I'd be frustrated with it or whatever but those three months when I was in shopping. That pain away that boredom and frustration. I got to really sit with it. And I discovered that there was often something else in my life that was bugging interesting but because I could blame it on my clothes so easily. I never figured out what it was right so now. When I'm feeling those feelings I actually feel the feelings and deal with in a different way that said some people may wonder if it does just get boring overall having a limited wardrobe or not shopping. Or you know not spending your time that way And what I've found is that I have more time and attention for things I really care about and since I'm not in the fashion industry didn't really care about my wardrobe to the extent that I was demonstrating that I was like all money and time that I spent on. My clothes was just ridiculous. It was like you were just filling some sort of avoid. It wasn't in fashion. Like you didn't really care about the clothes. You were just feeling something. I always trying to dress either to get the pain out And I didn't know I was doing that but also to prove who I was by what I wore so I would dress for work completely differently than I dressed in my real life to the extent that you know. I'd wear specific shoes to sell things like advertising because I got it made me look more powerful or more trustworthy or I'd wear a suit into meetings. Even though that was the last place I wanted to be was a conference room but I tried to dress. The part and that led to me pretending a lot Or an impostor your own. Body yeah sucked. Wow so you've been doing this for how long almost ten years. Wow Oh my gosh. Every three months it's a rotation every three months not a full rotation so I don't have a totally different wardrobe Like I think last year in between fall and winter I might have changed out to items but this year I probably had five or six changed out. But if I'm going from like summer to fall there might be more probably fifty percent at least comes with me into the next season. Wow and then. How often are you actually shopping? Like are you ever buying new things? It depends though so it might be quarterly. Might be less than that. Do get really excited to go shopping. Not really you don't know because I'm generally replacing something that I already have a function of whatever that thing is and now. I don't want to spend my time like that anymore. What do you say to people who are worried that if they get rid of clothes they will have too few options left? I'd say we have to stop believing every single thought we have so I get scared about a lot of things or worried that things are going to be a certain way and then they usually aren't And so now instead of stressing that entire time or not doing something. Because I'm worried about it. I just remind myself that my thoughts aren't always true backed. They're usually not in her so I would say see for yourself if you will have enough or not. You know you're not getting rid of your other items. So let's say you're doing the challenge and you realize that you need something that you don't have just go into your clothes and get it right. No one's grading the states right. This isn't like a pass or fail. Allen writes totally. It's like have some patients with yourself. Ally yourself a little wiggle room. Should you feel this way? And you're also going into your own wardrobe. It's not like you're purchasing and you know filling it up with new things your recycling and I mean there might be a situation where you have to buy something new and I always say. This isn't a project and suffering. It's really designed to reduce stress in your life. So for instance my daughter Bailey and I were in New York. I think this is about a year ago and we were going to the met. And we're in the subway and we had our coffee and I had a blue and white striped shirt on and I went to take a sip of the coffee and the LID hadn't been put on right just like all over you run on my shirt and I thought to myself well. I'm doing project three thirty three so I'm just gonNA wear this. Stained wet shirt to them that right. Yeah or anywhere right right but instead we just immediately went to a store and I bought a new shirt right. I mean it's not a test. It's not like someone's going to school. Do It's not about perfection right right. 'cause then that puts too much pressure on you and then you just won't follow through with it. Exactly right anyone repeat it. What other fears have you encountered from people? What kind of tips do you give them to get through it? So we have some very common fears that come up. But almost always their fears expressed from people who haven't tried the challenge yet and not people who have done it because they discover that these fears weren't really a thing But they are very specific and they come over and over again so the first one is laundry. I can't believe how curious people are about laundry. I think it'd be so much easier. It doesn't really change in that. I mean you still have to wash your clothes right right so unless you like. Where a month's worth of clothes before you do laundry I don't think you're gonNA see a big difference The only thing that changed for me is that I take better care of my clothes so I wash everything in cold water. I line dry as much as possible. That is super helpful. Your clothes will last longer and then the other fear is weather like what am I going to do? If the weather changes and I need a raincoat and it's not part of my thing then go into your Jovan get the rain co right. You've got it not to mention that the thirty three items actually takes me through a lot of different weather changes so there is like a melody there is room for it to in my case. I mean be in the eighties in the beginning of October and then be snowing at the end of December. And I'm still fine right right once. You pass the challenge. You have any rules you can get people for future shopping. I think people discover so much about themselves after they complete the three months that they'll set for themselves so I was just actually doing an interview before I came to talk to you with Josh and Ryan from the MINIMALISTS DOT com. And they were telling me about this thirty thirty rule they have. Joshua has where. If something's over thirty dollars he waits at least thirty minutes to buy it and I can't remember what he said for a hundred dollars. Maybe he might have thirty days. But if you are prone to like add to cart or buy on impulse if you set some boundaries for yourself it can really help so that you can take a little time to think about. Do I really want or need this for me. It really helps to write things down to that. I think all I need that and then I'll write it down and then I'll forget about it and then I mean that he really actually didn't. Yeah my mom. When we were younger always would say when we really wanted something to just like sleep on it for the night and if we are still thinking about it maybe like two days later than we could discuss it to obviously depending on the price on what it was but it is so important not to impulse. Buy For sure for a lot of the people that are listening to this. This may sound really difficult because you may have acquired so much stuff over the years. But you know you. Maybe the people that actually really really need it. Courtney was saying how she talks to Kinda minimalists time. Don't always even have thirty items in order to do this so I don't know something for me really to think about to try to do. I don't know that I could actually get rid of everything in my closet but maybe I could just corentin like an area where I keep the things and only poll from there. It just may be hard to not pull from everything else. I don't know so I did. Thirty days of different outfits with the thirty three items. Somebody actually did. The math of how many different versions and this is including jewelry accessories and all this. Are you ready? I'm ready twenty. Five thousand one hundred seventy six now Benicia from only thirty three items so you could wear a different outfit and and granted it might just be like changing earrings Every day for the next sixty nine years without ever repeating the same combination. Wow so I get that the combinations would be different but do ever get concerned that people are going to be like. Oh you've already warned that sweater like four times this month already like do ever care. I'm so glad you asked that question because I used to care a lot. I used to really care what other people thought of what I was wearing. Even if they weren't saying it just what they were thinking what they were thinking not only about what I was wearing but about how I live my life And when I first started this challenge as I said I was working fulltime in media nobody noticed for a full year nobody not share and they just didn't say anything or think these were the kind of people who would say something like we were that kind of group of people. Okay I would have been called out for sure. Nobody noticed and that gave me so much freedom in remembering that. When I'm doing things or thinking about things are going to try something new that nobody really cares. I mean anything that do say about. It has really nothing to do with me right. This is about them and their own insecurity or not even insecurity but whatever. They're thinking about themselves or they had a bad day or they don't like their breakfast. I don't know it rarely has anything to do with me. So no people don't really notice with the clothing And you know what if you posted the same outfit on Instagram? For a week. People are GONNA call you out on it properly. That's so different than like day to day. Life right right I mean there for me. There is always pressure to be wearing something new and not repeating things. But I also think that that's self inflicted pressure. That's not anybody telling me that I have to do that. It's me feeling the need to do that. So that's really more to pay attention to for sure. Yeah we'll where can we find more about you and more about the challenge? Yes so you can learn everything you need to know about the challenge in the new book project. Three thirty three. You can find me on my website. Be MORE WITH LESS DOT COM ON INSTAGRAM.

This is Apples secret weapon to make you care about AR (The Daily Charge, 11/20/2020)
"Support for this podcast comes from. At and t. you know throughout history. Switching to new technology wasn't complicated. Ancient roman acts made water fast reliable secure and nationwide. Electricity made candles fast reliable secure and nationwide. Today we have. At and t. five g. it's fast reliable secure and nationwide put into a historical context gets kind of a no brainer. At and t. five g. It's not complicated. Five requires compatible. Plan may not be in your area. At dot com slash. Five g for you. For details tech giants like google and apple has long been high on augmented reality even if consumers have been lukewarm about it. But apple's got a secret weapon with they are ordering the latest items on roger. Chang and this is your daily charge with need. Scott stein are guru on virtual and automated reality reality reality to welcome scott a thank you so i'm gonna reality or a are has been something that tech companies trying to make a thing for years and the best example that we still point to which is several years old now is pokemon go which really drew people into this world at least for this kind of gimmicky game. Where are we couple years since then. I know there's some folks are so played a very many as as during the peak was the state of aol. Right now transitional. You know. I feel like what we're looking at We you know we had these the magic leap in all lens that we're talking about how that's all going to be coming soon. And it's not and those expensive multi thousand dollar headsets ended up being slotted into business use. And you never see them in the real world the things you see our vr things. Even those are pretty rare and are kind of like a special treat that people get themselves so the air on phones has just been continuing to evolve and apple has been doing this all along. Google has a our tools That are baked in. And i think what we're seeing now with with a are is a move to more practical things in the in the past. A i got to talk to to apple mike. Rockwall alexandra mcginnis and they're saying that the first goal was just get you to get it to exist in the world in two thousand seventeen so that was your whole like pokemon dinosaurs things that you know. Oh this magically appears it's cool by their latest focused similar. Google is to do something productive and whether that's helpful information or creative stuff. It's like two different pads on the lighter side. Apples made a big deal of lighter sensors on the iphone twelve pro on the ipad pro. Those are opening up into basically creative. Augmented reality yeah. Let's let's slow down for a second there. Let's talk about light art because light are really is the eastern referred to as one of the secret weapons. That apple has a to make a are thing but just for listeners. Who don't know what lighter is. Could you sort break it down for us. Yeah absolutely. I mean stuff like this has been around for a bunch of years of being following tack Google tango. If you're if you're a technical you follow this stuff Years ago had same idea where you would scan the world. It's shooting out. Little infrared dot dot array like like like the face. I d camera or the microsoft connect with that technology way. Back on the connect was shrunken down in one of the makers that was incorporated babble was a bob apple So what it's doing sending out this like these little things. Is there a light pink measuring the space and you get like a dot matrix. A measurement of the space really fast and that meshes meshes is the term for creates a a basic map that space and instead of just saying oh. I recognize a floor. It's like throwing a blanket on the world where it's like. Oh i see where the chair comes up. I see where the walls are. I see where everything you know. And then that combines with things like computer vision which is like recognizing stuff like people you know where the camera like. Google does a stewart's like that's a person that's dog that's so it's a combination of those two things. That's what light are is. Helping do is mapping about five meters away from you see. I've seen this impractical cases where the aca Use your phone to scan living room in the flyer. Central recognizes though. This is a couch. This is the floor is your tv and it'll not consistently put your whatever i hear. You can't pronounce names anyways. The whatever the cabinets and intellectually know that the cabinet will will slot in there in between your tv. Your couch how he said lighters been around for a while. It's just coming into these phones or death on twelve lineup. now we've had a offer while. I'm just curious. How like what does light are do. Now that like these phones couldn't do before. Yes so that's where like when i was mentioning the super weapon in the story. It's kind of double. It's double edged. Meeting one is that it's lighter. But i think apple's real secret weapon is scale so when i talked to developers it's like you go. Oh there's already bad here what's the deal. Well it's kinda like when you see a technology and you go will. It didn't feel like a got there until it got there. Like i feel like what apple is doing is the same idea but refined and pushed into a lot more devices so the iphone twelve pro and the ipad pro but much bigger footprint than google tango was on just two very fringy phones and but but what google in the other thing that track. Here you're right like what really does for a are is. It makes things speedier and better like it gets a ping on stuff faster but it's simultaneously happening with computer vision getting better at doing the same thing without that so google has been doing this with just cameras. Were vr headsets. Do this with four cameras and like they can approximate a lot of that really fast. So it's a dance between that and the more advanced sensors. That's get under the hood. But like i think just means it's faster and better recognizing the world but the second part that i think is interesting is this whole like three d. scanning movement that has been around for a while but is about creating three d objects that you can then share with other people that's getting more of a groundswell in is becoming less fringy and nerdy with every passing year. Interestingly enough to the we're talking about this on phones there's constant rumors. That apple is going to release a headset. At some point of. Do you think the future of a our lies it glasses or in our phones. I think it'll be both. And i think what what you know. Talking with adobe briefly about like their head of a are about what they're doing air creative tools a very interesting observation. He made where they haven't thinking for a while is that it's very hard to enter the ar vr space Until it works with the stuff you already got all your apps like an oculus. Quest is a game console. it doesn't interact with like your phone apps. And so you wanna open like zumra wanted open document. It's a pain. You have to huggins so google apple. Google did this with daydream. Kind of but google and apple needs to approach having work with the phones and qualcomm is already laid this groundwork out. The qualcomm makes the chips in like all the air vera had set right now apple could be the other big competitor in that space. But what they've been talking about is plugging phones in headsets with usb c or wirelessly there already a few emerging anything that's wet provides the power but also like you say the app compatibility so i guess like we the reason i say yes and is like so your app on your phone could do a lot of it and then you plug in your headset like headphones for your eyes. And you're doing the rest of it. I think that extends it and then you think about apple that makes a lot of sense because like the apple watch it becomes another peripheral that makes sense in the sense. Like you're relying iphone is really the brains of the muscle powering experiences but ultimately you view it on your headset or your watch or whatever that doesn't require heavy lifting isn't required you don't necessarily wanna processor heating up right by your exactly and that gets you to things like five g because like talking to developers about five john headsets. It's very slow. Get for that exact reason like qualcomm has has the roadmap for five g. Headsets but it adds a lot of battery drain. You got to build more of a thing on your head No one's really done it yet. But like you're five g phone powers that gets to all the five g. Ar in the cloud stuff. That like microsoft. Google apple. like everyone's going for that. So i think it makes a lotta sense that that would be the path and then like apples processors. Like we're seeing the mac book and the am one like they just keep getting more crazy powerful and you kind of say four. What but like a are is a very intense said a processes and so. That's the stuff that those those processors could drive a lot of that. And then you again. You're not sticking it on your head. Otherwise i don't know will make something. That's like sleek on your face. It'd be hard if you had to put all the stuff in there you talk about a are as a creative tool elaborate on this idea of what. What exactly can visiting with a are so like when i downloaded the first set of like light are unable apps. It really surprised me going back to the ipad pro in the spring. Like the first bunch of a our apps again. We're like pokemon go dinosaur you know dinosaur play game. A lot of these are three d scanners and they are. They're pretty alienating at first. 'cause you're like you bring it up and suddenly you wave it around and you're creating this measure of your room and then you get this like crazy kind of dollhouse three d. model. And if you've never done it before you might wonder where to start how you create this. Some of them look kind of broken. In an interesting way spoke to like one of the bigger repositories of three d objects stock like it. Sketch fab saying it takes them finessing to get there so like these things and that's the stuff that's happening now with lighter. It's not there are some like. Oh the games run better. You can have like a remote control car now your table and like the table blocks it right and it can like hit a wall or like a it could hit like a box like recognizes all the things in your world which is like air. Headsets are going to start doing. But i think it's the creative part. That's interesting whether it's like really scanning in creating tools. And then both adobe and apple have a our creative toolkits with reality composer ero where. They're trying to get people to do this too. So that's what i mean by that. But it's so interesting to me when i look at the iphone. How little of that is at the forefront of what you see on a daily basis like you would never be aware of it and that's the hard part to get on board like apples. Camera doesn't have three d. Scanning it just but it uses light are for focus like in the background so apple definitely hasn't like made it a main part of ios yet but it's in the background of it and we're saly accessibility implications you brought that up at your as well. Yeah this is fascinating because like the same thing you're solving for a are is the stuff that could help people. 'cause augmented reality like for a while. I've been thinking about some books. i'm reading. Everyone talks about like that. It's superpowers for your senses. And it's rather than like a virtual world it's really it's literally augmenting your sensory stuff whether it's hearing or vision or or touch technically. That's what augmented reality means. So like hearing. There's a lot of companies like facebook's looking at this with with smart hearing assistive tech for their future are things apple's doing it to some degree already with airpods in various ways So there's a lot of audio stuff out there. Visually apple just updated. I was fourteen point two. We can hold with the The magnify app in accessibility. You can tell the distance from someone and it recognizes people. So it's using the same. A are tech. You with lighter but again mike rockwell rockwell mcginnis. We're talking about have that's just the beginning. You know that the sensory idea of your environment once you solve for that with the headset all that information can be something that you could assist someone with low vision it could it could enhance contrast or recognize objects or could who knows what else that company mojo lens and making the contact lenses that are a are and away. Those aren't here yet but the first thing that company is going for is is visual assistance. Repo with degenerate. Macular degeneration. And i feel like with apple. You could see them. Taking a similar path with health benefits or revision benefits for something like glasses similarly to how they do with the watch scott stanley members with Degeneration we've talked about this in the past and that technology that that's really exciting to me. I did want to talk a little bit about facebook. You brought it up a couple of times. They're obviously very in a r and vr as well dave increasingly Were to own both hardware and software experiences. You see oculus and in vr. Also you imagine that thou similar case with they are but this was a question for more by listeners. But do you trust this company to offer relief. Full experiences of full Experiences given its track record on privacy and how it uses its users information. it's very uneasy landscape. It really is like i feel unsettled by yeah. I use facebook. Even though i don't like what would facebook is up to on a lot of levels with with you know your data and in some other stuff but i still use it. I love the oculus quest. Does like it's it. There is nothing else that does it. But then you also have to weigh out this other stuff these questions of like and they keep going in that direction also stuff like so. I've written about this yet but oculus just updated software. There's a fitness tracker now on the oculus quest. His really fascinating the universal tracker that can look at your activity and motion super cool but then again you wonder like is actress like information that facebook will have about like my you know they can have my fitness data and there are clear lines. I think that's something that facebook is going to be running right up against with the more they push into the space they're hitting right into the personal information will flow worlwide and that like unless they make that stuff. It's going to be really really awkward for people. I think that's simultaneously. When google apple going to emerge their stuff so then like facebook has to decide i would think the destiny for facebook would be to just have it work of like fit bed or or any of these analogies are good but like we have a lot of smartwatches that have their own ecosystems like a fitbit a garmin or whatever else and then they work with your phone that that that's like what facebook needs to be as an app connected device but just be friendly to other things looking into it right now. It's getting more closed off and that's going to be a a really weird turf war with all the other players in the landscape like they're ahead on vr. But i don't know if they're going to be a head on a are or you know the the there just a lot of different players. That's my thought on right now. I still recommend the oculus quest to like. And i think it is a fantastic little console. You just have to know about like do you wanna live your whole life in their ultimately you special when we collect what does its future look like teaser and do you see a killer app coming along like another hickeys. At example again another pokemon go the comes along that actually makes a are relatable to mainstream customers. Like apple had interesting way of putting this in practice it because Rockwall mentioned that. The almost sounds like the apple. Watch the goals of keeping being glancing almost like like five or six interactions little things that would be be instant. You get them when you need them when when you encounter something so it's more of a flow and it sounds less at based and i so in that being kind of the killer app and being like this invisible layer. I don't know like for me. I think it would be helpful. Whenever it's like an extended to all of like with the phone could do like a try quarter. I think of it like you get to this point like can you quickly measure a space. Can i like. Oh can you just. Also i think about communication now like my dream thing. I hate zooms on unscreened. So like if i could just like sit down and chat with somebody. That'd be cool like it would be not just futuristic but it'd be relaxing if i could quickly pop in have a chat Leave and it's not like it's your marvel hologram fantasy but like i think those abuse super killer apps. I think it's really hard to think about individual games. Because the problem is they all feel like novelties. And you go. This is really cool for a while but like in the like i need a break in the need. Ever get back to it so i think it has to be something. That's like you're always going to us. I think it's super talk about a are. It's so hard to pinpoint. Because i don't even think it's a thing it's like a it's like a layer as everyone says so it's it's more of what we mean by living on our phones and Yes i think. And also i think the killer app is extending your senses like If people could could hear things better see things better and it really worked. That sounds like something you'd want. Use alive yeah definitely that. That's truly life changing technology. Scott thank you for your time. You can check out his story on. Cnn dot com.

Snow in Seattle, vaccine equity and an officer-involved shooting, this week
"Welcome to friday. Welcome to weaken review our chance to get together and figure out what happened this week. What it means. And what's making a smile and my journalists panel. This week is as always. They're making me smile. Founder of converged media salisbury. Welcome back to the show. It's great to be here. Thank you city hall reporter for the stranger natalie. Graham welcome back. thanks val. Happy to be here and k. U. a. w. reporter casey martin. Welcome back casey. Thanks thanks bill. I appreciate all of you being here instead of out hoarding toilet paper for the blizzard of twenty one. The last forecast i saw was for half a foot to a foot of snow in olympia. Less as you come north so four to eight inches in seattle. Two to six in everett and as always that's a mixed blessing snow is lovely can be fun can be dangerous unnavigable. The cold and wet can be miserable and natalie opening emergency shelters is of course complicated by covid. Yeah absolutely i mean. The city opened around a hundred and sixty Spare beds of emergency shelter this week. But a lot of that is reduced capacity. Because we're not allowing people to congregate the same way that they did. Maybe blizzard past because of covid nineteen protocols so my big concern is are we to have enough shelter space for for the over five thousand five hundred people who sleep outside in our city It's cold out and the shelters don't open until at least eight pm and i don't know if you guys noticed but it. It was like thirty degrees this morning. The cold is not waiting until eight. Pm so. I don't know how these people are spending their day besides being cold amari. How does your outlet converge media work with local government in a snowstorm. Well you know so. S dot kinda. Got out early with with They were intentional in their communications working. By the way that's the transportation department for people who don't know our media seattle department of transportation. They were real intentional with us even a few weeks ago. in over a representative to to Talk about best practice and preparation for inclement weather What people should be stocking up on. don't wait until the last minute how to be a good neighbor in some everything else in so Has been good for us because for for weeks now we've been able to relate some of the best practices around Staying safe warming prepared for for this For this limit weather how well do you think the city and county of handled this so far. Well i would definitely say in communication. They you know. They've handled a great snow. The snow will tell actually how it's it's totally handled here on the end. But i mean we saw the press conference the other day where you where you had the city of seattle representative as well as the county and as well as the state. They're all you know. Seem to be on the same page and communicating setting messaging. I think that's a strength that we've seen here Even around other things Win when the city the county and the state are all on the same page so they're definitely getting the word out on you know across all channels and platforms. Of course we'll have to wait till the snow hits the ground to be able to determine how they actually do but They're i think they're spot on. Its whereas the messaging does. Kyw's casey martin. What are you looking for thinking about shelters and a lot of people who don't have a choice to to leave saying attended katmandu or all of their possessions. I was going through my camera roll from photos of just february of last year. And i was scared of you reporter walters and we interviewed some folks Living right along. I five in u. district and i remember they had generators inside their tents on at the time they were burning hand sanitizer to say warm and flat out because of their stuff. There were of course going to abandon a lot of bicycles to get to work You can take that to shelters. It's a practice saw that some shelters were classified as co. ed It just there's so many hurdles shelter already and then on top of the snow I it's just so difficult. And has natalie said there's thousands of people outside year round and then all of a sudden it. The snow falls. That's when we decided opened up emergency shelters but you know. I'm thinking about in december when that huge rainstorm hit. And you know there's like river water downtown and we decide to open the shelters and again they opened up late. People have to get out of their super early in the morning I remember i was there last year. It was like seven. Am clearing out out into the snow to go out because they had to leave at seven am so every year. We kind of talk about this of. Oh we have to open up to the shelters and it always feels like a band aid on a huge news long crisis natalie. I mentioned at the top ingest hoarding toilet paper. But you notice that a supermarket shelves don't seem to be as white as they were right before our last giants. No yeah that any of you guys go to the grocery store yesterday. I probably should have. But i didn't. We'll it felt like a normal shopping day. If this was the past there would have been a war over the last banana Toilet paper would have been wiped out. i think i think because of the of of that huge shopping scare or that that rush to the supermarket in march of last year when everybody when the pandemic started i think everyone's over The the the panic by that we used to see in seattle in years past for these kinds of weather incidents It's a new normal. A calmer seattle in the snow will help people though right tunnels from last march. So i'm still shocked. Because i was not i remember. I got like six hundred a little. I didn't mean to hoard. I was hoping to burn through those tales. But i i realized i still have else. In twenty twenty my children feel the snow has been poorly allocated costing us precious snow days between the weekend and the remote school. What a waste as my daughter. Put it totally totally. The snow day is dead in zumra. That's my that's my Take only power. Outages are a snow days. Yes that is right. That's the news today. I gr- windstorm. We had a couple of weeks ago. That was a snow day. Actually to be clear. I grew up in omaha. Where snow meant shoveling but casey. That's not as true here again. This is something we talk about. Every single snow Happens in seattle. Is people just aren't typically used to dealing with the snow and there's always this debate of all the I think sidewalks and accessibility is a huge issue. A it happens every year sidewalks are unworkable. They're impossible for anybody who's trying to go down the sidewalk Ice snow et cetera. And the other day. I tweeted and i do it every year. Because i think it's funny. I tweet out the seattle municipal code spells out. Who's responsible for taking care of sidewalks homeowners of course property owners. If you own the house you own the adjacent sidewalk you have to clear and it says clearly you are responsible for ice and snow and somebody tweeted out me thinking. Oh that's adorable. You think that's going to happen. And i don't think it's going to happen. But there's always this confusion and finger pointing every year of the city should be applying it or somebody should be shoveling it and it's there you know it's on the website people should be taken care of it and also i from folks that say you know. My landlord lives in idaho. Or they live like they're never gonna show up his walk. So that's another issue. I remember last year Mayor dirk and had the you know. Pick up the campaign like shovel. Your neighbors walk kind of thing But it's a problem if you if you get on seattle streets you see people go into the street because it's been plowed in staying off the sidewalk because it's walkable right. I think in in so in our neighbor of a lot of Our community aren't necessarily homeowners A lot of them are renters in you know so. They're not so much worried about the sidewalk but they're also there are a lot of them are in public transit and so although i did hear Link light rail say or sound transit said that they were going to increase the frequency some Between every twelve minutes to every you know between every twelve minutes every fifteen minutes that also run the trains throughout the night to keep the ice and snow off the cables i. I'd like to see him. Increased the frequency. Bring that down just a little bit more. Maybe like every eight minutes or something like that Just because it is very very cold people are sitting out there. Literally you know in in the elements waiting on a train waiting on a bus. Yeah buses are the in in hilly seattle. That's its own. You know headache especially for people who it. it's not optional. Depending on on those buses as our people in south park and white center who get often cut off because of snow routes metro was able to cross the bridge and they're already coordinating texting each other of like. Okay well somebody car to get me into town and th that's how they have to do it like there's no other option and you talk to metro and they say well if the if the accesses even with studded tires and chains able to get to that neighborhood. We're not going to get to that neighborhood and people are still trying to get into work and family. So it's it's it's such chaos. Every year i think for a lot of folks one concerning they cut out. Sorry i hear that they cut one hundred. And seventy eight routes in those emergency snow routes hundred seventy eight routes or one could concern that special to this winter is of that could slow vaccine distribution or make people miss their appointments their for their first shot or their second shot. Which is a concern. But natalie you've been reporting how people are still waiting to be eligible for a vaccine at all including a group that you've been talking with this week. We explain. Yeah definitely so a group. That i don't think a lot of people are thinking about in terms of vaccination are sex workers and this is a job that has continued throughout the pandemic and a lot of these people are doing this work to survive because A misconception is that sex workers precede stimulus payments or unemployment. But in reality a lot of them didn't because of a myriad of reasons maybe being on banked only using cash or just fear of Applying for a federal benefit and getting arrested because expert is illegal. But that doesn't change the fact that this is ongoing and A lot of this work is done. Unmasked and in close contact and Usually either so there's an exchange of bodily fluids. I'm not sure that phrases ever been said on public radio but that that's a fact and so a sex worker. I talked to said that she believed that. Maybe this was. They were the most high risk workers. And what is they're they're not. They're not deemed essential workers when it comes to vaccines what's being proposed right so the hypothetical phase that they could receive vaccine priority for is one be to which this is. This is the group of phase that consider as high risk work. And there's a bunch of Jobs listed like agricultural work food-processing grocery store workers teachers childcare corrections et cetera. And so the thought process is will. Maybe we can just add sex work in there and so in the spring Sex workers could start to see these. Vaccinations and at the first tier is fifty years older. So it would be the people in that profession who were older and then tier one beat your four years under for the people in those professions and so that is kind of the The argument right now is. Hey maybe we should include this line of work because These are real people in. These are real jobs and a lot of the times. These are people from marginalized communities low income people of color and they are high risk. And if we're not vaccinating them were just allowing them to continue doing these. This work that will put their lives at risk. And maybe the lives of their clients. Any reaction casey or amari. It was such a great piece and it was so important. And i. I highly recommend it to everyone listening and it was a brought up this conversation. I've had grandparents who they're definitely eligible to get vaccinated. They haven't yet and they have had this debate. Not that they don't want to but they've had this debate of. We never leave our house like we plan on leaving. And when natalie is like we know that there's so many people that technically don't qualify yet or not meeting the era but are at higher risk. That are going out and working every day that are bringing in income and there is just the struggle for my grandparents of you know there are over seventy five. They begin bexley but they almost feel like they wanna give that. Does you know for somebody else for somebody. Like unnaturally story of these people are going on in exposing themselves And of course it's just it's big debate of who should be given this spectrums. I for for me. One thing that we've been tracking closely is the Vaccine pop-ups that seattle fire department as has been out in front of We saw the you know the the went to basically the adult homes. And then you know the the adult homeworkers. The people four hundred for grocery store singer workers yesterday. We're there at first ame church in what used to be the central district. Now's capitol hill And three hundred and thirty seven doses of vaccines are individuals who serve there and it was a collaboration between the city of seattle and the seattle fire department but the central area senior center in several black churches all came together and to get three hundred and thirty seven of our elders most vulnerable there vaccinated so one one thing that i've that i've seen is that When it comes to our community when you talk about essential workers we we've seen like i said the fire department pop up. When we seen elders in our community there popping up as usually between three and four hundred people vaccinated every time. And you know could there be more a faster better systems. I would say so but also can't diminish the effort. This being given and intentional effort there were seeing off from chief. Scoggins and different People players in the community to get somebody's vaccines out to people. Need it the most. Well how fair do you think. Amari this This charge is here. A play the seattle city council president llorente gonzalez talking about how the covid vaccine distribution is not good enough. i have become increasingly alarmed by the widening disparities. Racial disparities in the distribution of covid nineteen vaccinations and the lack of shots. Making it into the arms of vulnerable individuals and groups particularly from black brown indigenous and other communities of color. So that a fair. Meanwhile you don't have to be a rocket scientist here to know that everything's inequitable. You know what i'm saying. Well this is great all right. Hey thanks for bringing attention. But yeah i mean especially when you when you look at nationwide and you also look you know even here in seattle. I mean the report said that like Sixty seven or sixty seven or seventy percent of vaccines have gone to basically white people Like five percents gone latinos but they make up thirty two percent of the cases among probably a little bit off your on the numbers by then we get the idea we see. I mean yeah when you see hospitals here given vip service to to to donors it and and their special friends and everything else see. I live in a world though conference. Central chicago seattle. And i know that injustice inequity and all of these things are omnipresent and so really my focus is to be able to try to get resources to our people. Despite all of these things that are going to occur no matter how big red flag that these people kinda wave who would imagine th that hospitals in things like that would have their vip room set up and so in every situation. People are always going to find a loophole. The poop on little guy. This is so. I'm not surprised but all we could do in our community is keep pushing finally natalie on the topic of sex work how i was wondering how much sex work has migrated to to remote sex work like so many things which may sound like an oxymoron. But what have you found. Yeah no. that's a great question It's a complicated question because so when you say remote. I take i take online from that. End clearly see onlyfans. The subscription porn site that has become really popular during the pandemic and that's one example but is an oversaturated market and it's incredibly hard to it takes a lot of labor to make that work for an individual a lot of marketing and what we see is that through laws that have been passed in the last three or four years. Like foster incest which are anti-trafficking laws A lot of these online sex spaces where sex workers are were able to vet their clients and basically be safer space in and more control of their work in their industry Have been shut down because of these anti-trafficking laws and so the while the industry has been changing through all these regulations and all these complications like in covid nineteen Not everybody is able to make online work online sex work work and so oftentimes people are forced into going in person on the street and into environments where they're not necessarily Comfortable or familiar with. So it's it's this. It's a really complex and complicated problem and there aren't very many exact numbers because as you can imagine. This is pretty a pretty taboo subject. That is not heavily reported But yeah it's it's really. it's really interesting And it's ongoing. Finally natalie i assume that king county could take that step that you mentioned and make sex workers eligible for a vaccine county by county basis. Do you see any sign that that's going to happen bill. I really don't know. I i would like to think so just because i mean talking to these sex workers for this piece that i wrote this week. This is something that really worried about. this is a this. They're they're only they're trying to do as many coloured nineteen protocols as they can like Sanitizing in washing Taking showers beforehand and trying to vet their clients but really at the end of the day. It's just impossible risk analysis of okay. Well i need to put food on the table. But i don't want to expose myself to too many people. So what am i gonna do And there were. There wasn't indication that the county was can county was interested in in Moving sex workers are putting workers into this vaccine prioritization group. According to the sex worker. I spoke to but that that changed as soon as she celebrated the news that that might have happened And there's no indication why that changed Or if anything will will move forward with with actually factoring sex workers into the vaccine allocation. That's natalie graham city hall reporter for the stranger we've also got. Kyw's casey martin here and from converge the founder omari sows berry. And here. we're talking about equity so in a moment we are going to check in on seattle's attempts to invest away from policing and into communities of color. That's when we return on. Koa ws week in review. This is week in review. I'm bill radke this week. Brought some turbulence in seattle's mission to invest money and communities of color last fall the city council overrode the mayor's veto and spent three million dollars hiring a group to study where investments of money could go and that study is known as the black brilliant project will this week the researchers that were hired say they no longer will work with the organizers king equity now omar. You're following this closely. What's happening. Follow it closely. Men is trae on a holiday. My co-host she's a she's a part of king county equity now. I mean in in the bigger picture. What i'm taking away from because you know there's there's different allegations about work conditions and In in people's attitudes and things like that. I've i've tended to put to the side and kind of focus on the facts of what i've seen it and what i've seen is black black brilliant research of the researchers that's not all of the researchers so it's like a cohort as a big group of them That my black brains researchers What king county equity now is saying is that. They focused a lot of their research. Basically on On areas the king county equity now is so for example. I think like fifty percent of the research has been done might have been around. Lgbtq plus Don't quote me on ebola. A big percentage and there's a lot of research has been done also in the east african community in different communities. But there's a lot of of other research soaking county equity now saying like well. We want more legacy black Researcher researchers funding or or. That'd be like things like want to worry and their researchers are nurturing routes they're researchers and so i mean to me a big part of it is a break in the ideology of who thinks people who should be talking to who Yes a big deal. Because one point eight million dollars has been spent thus far you know honest to research also brings up a bigger issue as well as like you know we're talking about you know black or by Communities overall with what people are talking about research but also as opposed to come out of this though is public safety recommendations for an entire city. And so there's still to be said as well as like you know who house the rest of the city Get get heard from Because on participatory budgeting recommendations for this this other thirty million. That's out there to fund the The suggestions that's a participatory budgeting. Which right now. They're suggesting that every citizen seattle ten years of agent up should be able to participate in in giving information on how the money should be spent. And that's also presents an issue because you know the there's no infrastructure currently set up in seattle to for that many people that many categories to vote so It's it's been it's been interesting thing here you know. I've spoken to all the parties Around this i've spoken to some the blackberry. Researchers spoke to johnny equity. Now we try to follow up with the city is well. There's supposed to be a final report is going in february. Twenty six king county equity now tran. A holiday said on a morning. Update show that they're gonna push by that i think contractually they'll have until march thirty first. It'd be able to to submit their final report to the city council But i'll say this you know. I mean speaking as just a member of the black community must be for all black folks though but definitely a member of the black community is that you know it. It was definitely a sense of sadness across our community when when this news came out And we know that a lot of times presses city here in seattle. I mean it's a lot of people who are like. Hey will you know what The way we've invested in black people we've invested in. Something happened in our didn't work so you see what i'm saying and they don't have a willingness on a on a the support of things like we already know that that's what happens in the city and so i think a lot of people in our community no matter what we're just kinda hoping against hope around this situation. It had been something where you know. There have been rumblings about about the to these. Two groups have an issue for months But you know. I think a lot of people. We're just really hoping against hope in the sense that whatever their issues where they'd be able to figure it out and and move forward so now king county equity. Now who's actually you know under contract via freedom project City council contract They you know they have to. They have to submit the data. They have to submit information when asked trae holiday. She said they'd be using some of the black brilliant research has been collected in also A lot of other researchers that king county equity now has either on staff or that they're going to be funding. The remaining one point two million dollars. Okay i'll share. What city councilor tammy morales said. And then i'll ask for any reaction from casey and natalie. Counselor morales told the seattle city council insight blog quote. The issue is not whether this is a typical research project but is instead entirely about how to teach community members. Exactly how to critically analyze the impact of policy on their neighborhood. It's access to power that my community has never enjoyed participatory. Research is about building the capacity of our neighbors to understand what's happening in their community and to increase civic engagement so they can inform future policymaking. This is what we mean. When we say the power and resources now she was speaking there before. This latest kind of dispute was going on but she was saying. This is a normal process. This is participatory budgeting and it's different. And and get a lot of non answers at all these city council members and we get a lot of non answers out of morales. Says well lots of platitudes and everything else and you. All the right words all notes understanding and a feeling of people the question we talked about this on the show this morning man just be straightforward people. Tell the truth. But i mean the issue might issue with this isn't methodology. You know what i'm saying. I'm not. I'm not when when these guys. He scientists map scientists around statistics like that. So i don't. I don't have an issue with methodology. Or if if it's talking to people this way or use an ipad or on paper or questions. Whatever my my issue is this. Get into the finish line and and this being representative of public safety needs and concerns yet in our community but also something that the city as a whole because participatory in their including a whole city can buy into doesn't matter if the outcome is great. If we're doing participatory budgeting here. All these people are participating in it and they don't buy into it so these are things we got to keep in mind. I mean and you know. This is a politician answer we need. We need straightforward answers around around this very important issue here And so. I think a lot of people. Let's let's be honest about this bill at the end of the day it. I'm not diminishing the research at all and these guys are out there. They're doing their thing. I'm away in less. Let's look at the research. Casey and black. Let's look at that but the at the end of the day. We know what the research is going to say. They're just join it down. It's gonna say there's under sir. Portion of our population has been continuously under served and marginalized in lots of different ways. And you know these are the ways that people feel that they can find some equality in social services and public safety. We know the outcome. That's not what people are. clamoring about. People are clamoring about you. know what. What's what's how's the transparency around this you know. How good are the deliverables around. This isn't inclusive enough. So that's the issue that's morales is talking laughed and or right or whatever direction but not directly to the point again to be fair to counselor morales. I got that quote from before this week. It was sort of earlier on when city. Seattle city council insight blog was saying this is an unusually structured contract. But anyway. I want to finish with any reaction from casey or natalie to this case. Yeah i think omar right. I mean this is. This is a really complicated issue in it has received a lot of scrutiny. Especially from that the sec seattle city council insight article. But i i've been covering it briefly As as the reports come through city council and one of the things that i think is a really hard part about this which omari was was talking about standing up this entire participatory budgeting system citywide And so the the most recent preliminary report outlined kind of a basic idea of what that could look like an it seems really complex and i mean that's what that thirty million dollars that the city it's under proviso right now but if the city votes after this final report then they'll release those dollars and then we can start seeing that That happened but My understanding from talking to the black brilliance research project reporters is that too not too much should change since the contract with the city is technically was never with king county equity now It was always with the freedom project. But i do think that there will be some hierarchy changes because i think king county equity now still took the lead and then the freedom project was subdued. Vendome isn't So so the thing is yet king. County king. county equity now wasn't a nonprofit at the time in so it's made through freedom freedom project but king county quickly. Now there is an addendum this in the contract. Were they're actually in the contract. So if that addendum wasn't there then it'd be like f- freedom project would be like at what whatever we're just getting an different subcontractor to deliver these deliverables to the city but My understanding of the contract is is that king county equity now freedom project in the city of seattle are tied together some regards to deliverables around this in so some of the changes that i think people early on that might be real easy like. Hey we could just do this or that Based upon the contract of what's in there And we'll do a little bit more digging around. It's not gonna be as easy for them. As casey n is is in there as delivering the black brilliants. I'm looking at the clock. yes i wanna. There's a couple more items i want to get in. Can we pause it for their a. Do we stop in the middle of a thought. Natalie can i know i was just gonna re rephrase so it's fine. Yeah okay well. We'll we'll this will obviously continue to be very closely watched. So we'll see how this sort of difference of opinion plays out. I want to mention that you know. A big driver of these. Investments in in communities of color was taking money from the seattle police department which the city council has said has been over police policing over incarcerating killing people of color based on racism and this week police shot and killed a man near the northwest african american museum. Something else that you have been following our amari converged media. So would you tell us what happened that night. And what was the reaction yeah. It's it's been an intense week for us over year converted. Start off the week with this With this other news. Now this shooting. Here up there on tuesday and i mean basically. You know there's this is something that's close to home for for us And it was. The there was a tenant. The maintenance man greg greg taylor who's a history of issues over there in that building He went and approached this car. It was random violence when approached his car and started shooting in the car. And we know they're dead on the one. One person died There but it was. It was crazy for us because those the girls who came over there to that building actually came to pick up the son of someone who works here at converge. And he was he was he got out there to the door and he forgot his laptop and he ran back upstairs get his laptop and when he came back down Greg taylor is shot up the car. you know i'm saying and this has sony dynamics to it. I of all like we. We needed to get out there to the public that this was a random act of violence and also to the police everybody else. This was a random act of violence and the narrative initially was when which was so crazy year. And you know we see so much of the super woke you know i. I like to call them. The the people drink the new world coffee and everything else who who came out there and you know they. They was trying to make this murderer a martyr. I mean it was crazy early on. They were trying to make they. Were trying to make greg taylor a martyr. But because the police seattle police department killed him. You know he went. And i mean and this is the and this will. I'm talking about if you give me a medicare bill. I'll try not to rant too long. But this is what i talk about about a lack of leadership and people just not being able to tell it how it is. In the city of seattle. There was not enough people. Just sit there and be like look at the headlines on the paper of people should should be shamed with themselves these headlines that they put out here in the newspapers and everything it's like. Oh yeah we'll. Spd kills black man and central district s pd killed. A man who murdered two innocent people in the problem is people here in this city. Don't know how to tell the whole truth. They ala carte the truth for their own political advantage or even right. Now look at all these city councilmember scared to even come out and say something scared. Even say as a tragedy scared to say anything because they're pandering to the twitter sphere. They're pandering to their base instead of pandering honesty instead of pandering to integrity instead of pandering to the truth. And this what we see here in the end result is you've got the new woke the culture vultures and and and the appropriators. There are over there actually writing murals. They're going over there to nam writing writing a building. Vigils in murals over there to this guy. Greg taylor who who who shot into the car and killed and killed one person over there and so so now but my coworker here. She can't even bring her son home. Because there's muros out there to the person who murdered her friend. Tell you how bad we are here in seattle. Just tell you how backwards. How the how. How hyper won't the super left is out here. Did any old thing that they can do. They just jumped on the bandwagon without knowing that. Ask you about an hour out. Talk anybody in the community. Amari that the people who want to a who say abolish the police department. Aren't they arguing that even in cases like this police shootings are ultimately not the solution in the long run whether you agree or not. Is that the argument. I mean i don't. I don't i don't i don't subscribe to their ideology so i don't follow it so you need to ask them. You know what i'm saying is this is. That man was a cold blooded killer. And that's what needs to come out. I in the problem problem is over here. Look at this. I mean bill. That's a question. But man. I reject that question because as crap at the end of the day. The bigger problem is is. Why do we live in a city. They would even tolerate the opening. The opening line about this being like. Oh cop kills black man just black man just cold blooded murder kill somebody. This is the fundamental problem in the city. Who cares what these other people think. Wasn't they kids out there. It wasn't they babies a got shot up. It's not their child in the more. So of course. They have all these ideas and platitudes till it gets close to. You is to tillerson your home. That's what impacts people starts about things reaction from natalie or casey when news breaks like this We as journalists were i. I'm not gonna use terrified about getting the facts right. And there's of course debate over Officer involved shooting Versus you please. Killing and when. I've seen their immediately of social media. Go seeing a lot of reaction from people saying i don't i don't want to hear that you know i don't wanna the facts. Come out. they just want to know that. The That yes there was an officer involved shooting the seattle officer shot and killed this person. And that's all that. They're interested in knowing and mari that it's we're just so quick to accept a narrative and to jump on that narrative and then go out in the streets in march and we just kind of racing and scrambling keep up with facts Even after it's too late so i was. I was shocked. A little surprised that immediately afterwards people are crying protests. People are planning to show up you know to to spd's precincts and literally saying. I don't i don't wanna know story. I don't i don't want here anymore. I just want to know where to show up. And i agree with them are that they're really doesn't feel like there's any dialogue. I feel where we were a year ago. And just the divide between police and community groups a lot of very passionate activists A lot of are looking for a reason to go outside. They're they're kind of jumping on every single news story to go out and protest. Well you ain't gonna take advantage of the pain neighborhood. Tell them that you're right. People wanna take advantage. Where i'm tired. I'm tired of people especially white people in this city appropriate and black people's paying for their political advantage. And it's to stop today. Air might remind me when. I both abusing. Everyone's seen this when you black lives matter marches to see people marching and then to see a whole bunch of white people in block block pulling dumpsters throwing garbage and then black people running oversight no stock that what are you doing. Why are you causing stuff. And that happens all the time. And i'm just i. I don't know if there will ever be a dollar between people who claimed to be supporters of black lives but are are not exactly in communication or in coordination with black people in the city. Natalie did you want to say anything for we roll on. I don't think i have anything to add. That hasn't already been said but Yeah i am really surprised about the that narrative that that false narrative that came out about how the shooter knew the victims. I that was really disturbing to me. An and i'll just say this. And i know we gotta move on. Is the man we had to push for that. We had to push. And also i give credit to hannah scott over at cairo. Fm because we we were pushing on on the dave. Ross shore early morning. I was like man. This is wrong. this is traumatic to the family. And and you know what's amazing about seattle and i'll tell you is when people thought it might have been drug deal gone bad or something. The media really didn't care to be honest with you but now that is a random act of violence of what it is man. You should see him much. My phone is blowing up. People wanna know and everything else and all this other stuff so. I'm glad that that and i'm glad that's happening. But that just tells you how important it is to actually get the truth out there and be able to get these narratives right in the last thing. I want to stay as i challenge our city leaders in our community later leaders to stop being cowards. And how some courage and be able to come out and just say when something is right or something is wrong. We're tired of you guys being cowards in city hall we're tired of you guys being cowards running these community organizations. If something's wrong just say it's wrong. A marsalis berry founder of converged media. Where with city hall reporter for the stranger. Natalie graham kyw reporter casey martin on the week in review. And we're going to be right back with a loss for tim. I'm in an wrap things up. Stay tuned it's kyw's week in review. Bill radke this week. A judge found that anti-tax initiative promoter. Tim i'm in violated state campaign finance laws. Judge james dixon find. I'm in two point six million dollars and barred him from financially controlling anymore. Political action committees this court fines and concludes that mr almonds violations of the fair campaigns practices act are numerous and particularly egregious. And we're quote intentional. Close quote as that term is defined by law washington attorney. General bob ferguson told king five that among other things. I'm into hundreds of thousands of dollars in unreported kickbacks from a signature gathering firm some of which he spent on himself and he did it anyway. And that's what. I found so frustrating about this keys as he just seemed not to care. He thought the rules not apply to anybody. Get away with it. So here's what i wanna know. I don't know if there's going to be an answer. natalie. I'll start with you. Does any of this mean tim. I'm in can't or won't promote more tax cutting initiatives even if he can't be the treasurer and then i could also ask if not him the somebody else come along. Why is this about tim. Henman any of these things a great question. I wish i had a better answer than What is going to be a lot of speculation but No i don't really think the stops anything. Pretend i am. And he had a similar case brought against him in two thousand two where he was supposedly going to be banned for running. Treasurer campaigns are being the treasurer for these these campaigns. But that didn't stop him he just doing it. Unofficially so maybe there will be more a more More stringent rules against that. But i don't know man. I know him i mean he is just been released successful in in doing what he does. Which is promoting these thirty dollar. Car tab Initiatives and people really like getting their their taxes capped. But i do think that his unique personality may May have helped him along in that effort because he's like this kind of pro trump right where he is really good at appealing to people's base sense of selfishness. And you know throwing the the government under the bus for being liars and cheaters and asking you know why should pay these taxes for things that don't just benefit the individual and at the end of the day he's he's doing this while while positioning himself as an outsider as somebody who is outside of of government in the system. And yet here here. He is dipping his hands into the campaign Camping coffers for his own personal game. I don't think to my minister going anywhere. But i hope that people would tire of him and you know maybe he has paved the way for other drifters tres and other populists to come through with their own. Data's but that still remains to be seen mentally mentioned pro-trump and we're talking about how i'm in cases compelling partly because he is so defiant some people call him trump like whether you accept that or not but that's part of the intrigue. Yeah i mean. I thought he had a pretty interesting. Season's finale and next season. I can't wait for whatever the pilot's going to be sure it's going to be a good show. Stop probably is going to do the full to our With lots of build up to my. He's not going anywhere you know. This was great for him. You know he's all over headlines again he looks. It looks great. Looks defeated is just gonna. It's gonna to his cause Last person was outside of mayor jenny. Durkan's office and he was of course renegade inside to do something and he had this sign that had a few swear words on it and he looks to the press and before he's like present this case or something he. He says he goes. You guys think this this is offensive. And he's asking us the press the reporters. We're not going to tell you what we think of this. And i thought it was so it was very trumpian of just. Hey does this senate offend anybody. And that's just as brand. That's his style you know. I've interviewed people that. Say they love the thirty dollars car tabs. They hate to my mind so he's not going anywhere i think. He accepts his kind of villain role and Yeah i i'm popped popcorn and he's going to be back for sure amara we were talking about and we always in the show on a smile and you're saying tim. I'm actually not a bad candidate. That's not going to be my smile but for this week but you know one thing i will say is meant. Tim was in a lot of people. Might not realize that we see. I haven't met he. He was out there campaigning in chop and every the protests vote on capitol hill for people who don't know exactly yeah to try to get an interview with everything. I don't know too much about the case like that only does way. Yeah that's that's my story in the newsletter after after the court now okay subscribed well. There's let he couldn't his pay pal link Yeah okay but are more you can top that when it comes to a smile you said you know what man would really made me smile. And it's maybe something where a small can come out of something tragic where really made me smile is in our own talk too much about us converged but you know i'm gonna talk about a right now. That the little engine they could the guys that are punching well above their weight class was able to just push the needle in a little bit to make the seattle police department. Update their statement about what happened with with the shooting in. Thang is other thing that made me smile. Is that's an acidy of a small journalists of small operations big journalist. Small operators like justin carter capitol hill time capital seattle dot com the capital seattle blog and the report and he's doing and hanover kiro fm. And then how the reporters wants to actual story got updated. Made me smile that that so many journalists in seattle took interest more interested in his story. Inner digging deeper in it and everything else and it almost makes. You wonder like if we weren't involved in this and we weren't pushing pushing this in pushing for it to come out the same narrative might be out there. You know seattle might be going in a different directionally this story so i'm smiling about that today. A plug for local journalism. Casey or natalie what. What made you smile this week about my first motorcycle. It's a hundred twenty-five. Cc honda monkey. It's very very small and So i'll be out there some of my face wind in my hair. And hopefully axiom. I coursing through my veins. That's what i'm hoping for monkey in the snow on flip that time for me. Oh gosh well you guys picked really meaningful ones. I was really following the frivolous. Was that so go ahead. I said feel free free to be frivolous go great. I'm very purpose. But none gorilla glue hair story. Which what. The woman texaco brown. Who ran out of hairspray. And so she used a gorilla glue adhesive to keep her hair in place and she had it stuck in her hair for a month and then a tiktok video she posted about it which was really funny but also like you could tell she was really sad It blew up. And then everybody put in all this money and A plastic surgeon of in la volunteer to flyer out and do a procedure for free in her hair. She got she got the piece of out of her hair after month. And so it's a nice. Yeah i got my first reaction. Was i couldn't fathom putting some post purposely posting something that i had done like that i would have been embarrassed and yet it worked out so well i don't know whether she was embarrassed or not or conflicted but there was something kind of yeah. There was something smile worthy about. If she put herself out there and she got a free free helping california. That sounds like fixture problem. Now everything is content bill even paying. There is a video that she posted of her hair and she was putting shampoo on it and it just slid off. It was like a helmet. That's how solid it was anyway. It's done now Hopefully she can get hurt on the cat filter guy off of the smile of the week. Fifteen minutes we're over him cat filter guy if you missed it. It'll be another one coming along.

Income Statement Ratios
"Welcome back to another episode Marketing Management and Money Host Ryan Mary. I'm your host Brian Owens. So today we're going to dive in to the finances but we're we're GONNA get nitty gritty like we're gonNA dive into some financial ratios and we're going to be. We're going to be covering some calculations this this one's going to get a little bit deep but I can tell you this. You need to know this stuff. Absolutely this is really really good stuff. it's going to be dealing specifically with our income statement and that's not something that a lot of people get the value Out of that. They really should and so by learning these things and taking the time to understand them and implement them and implement them we use it was I was already okay. Okay if you if you take the time to do that it'll provide some really solid lead value for your business because here is the mistake and if you are in this boat you need to get out of this boat and you need to start doing things correctly but this is the mistake. So many times businesses fail to use their financial statements as a powerful tool rule and instead it becomes a tax document at the end of the year. Oh crap I gotta do my taxes so I better put this stuff together. Give it to my accountant and never look at it. Again is a huge mistake but it happens all too often. You've gotTA use your financial statements as a tool tool that you got to understand how to do that. Yeah I really is such a high hate called a failure but it really is such a mistake. You know it's you can use the word failure. My feelings aren't hurt. I know we know the on ours so but it really is like stepping over this pot of gold of information that you can use to run your business so much better so please just do it so learning and do it so let. Let's let's start with a little bit of what financial ratios are okay And why we even care about these things because if we don't lay okay the premise. This is what I'm afraid is going to happen. And I'm going to warn our listeners upfront. Because I don't want you guys getting sucked into this trap and that is this this can get a little tedious or it can feel a little tedious is really not that bad you know. These are some basic calculations. We're not getting into anything into deep in terms of the math but it can feel a little bit overwhelming and so as we go through these calculations since. I don't want you guys tuning out. I don't you guys in. Oh that's not for me because either is for you now. Financial ratio is nothing more than making an apples to apples comparison. So here's the deal. Let me reiterate that really quick okay. Okay it's apples to apples like you're not comparing I'm to totally random things it's you and as you go through you WanNa make sure that that's that's part of it. You're comparing the correct things. Yeah so so I'm GonNa take something thing and I'm going to divide something else into it. That's the the calculation of a ratio. Is it's a division calculation and it's either going to end up as a percentage manage. It's going to end up as a decimal is going to end up as you know. Maybe even a you know a number that might be greater than one but regardless regardless. It's going to help us tell a story. And that's the power of ratio analysis is what it does is it. Takes the numbers out of a numerical the miracle context and it puts them into this. This story where I can literally see what is going on in my business and I can understand and if I'm growing at such a great way to put it really is your businesses story. Yeah and one of the things that you always have to hear me say a and we get sick of it. Is I love things like when you look at a business and you say okay. Am I increasing at an increasing rate or my increasing at a decreasing rate is increasing in both instances. But if I understand the rate at which I'm increasing all of a sudden I can tell you you you know what phase you know in in the in the life cycle of either a product or the business what phase of my at because then I know what phases coming next next can plan for these things exactly so exactly a lot of information in this so we gotta get through this. It's not gonna be that bad if you follow with us so it may be one you WANNA listen to a couple of times you know until you get that kind of routine down where it's like. Okay this is what I'm GONNA do. Azzam News The saints so by all means use this as a tool to to get you to that point. Yeah Yeah so let me give a high level overview you of hurry ratios that we're going to cover and Then we'll kind of dive into him so we're talking about income statement ratios. This is measuring the profitability often ability of your company. That's what we're looking at. Today's we're looking at the profitability of your company off of the Income Statement If if we remember from previous episodes the income statement is also the profit lost the PL. It's all the same thing and so we're taking information from those statements. Now if I have have a bad if I've got bad information if I failed to put together the correct information no these ratios are going to matter. It's it's going to be just just garbage and so make sure that you've got quality information that you're starting with and we're going to dive in so there are five ratios that we want to cover today. Sales growth contribution margin break even gross margin and profit margin. Those are the five. Let's kick it off right. Take take us through. Sales cruiser so sales growth is actually pretty simple right so it's just the it's the ratio of sales growth so it's it's a percentage change year over year that your company is experiencing so the goal here is obviously to have growth and not just growth if you want consistent steady growth And manageable growth. Exactly so I don't know this is something we want to go into right now. But it will It'll help us look for her to help us identify things that maybe coming that we want to prepare for and all ratios will help us see Z.. Things within our business. Yeah and so. I think that this is kind of something that we want to. At least let our listeners be thinking of as they go through these racial because as we talked about earlier. There's a story behind all of these numbers right. Okay so how. How do you calculate cell growth calculating sales growth again is really not difficult at all so you take your current year sales and the first thing you do? Is You. Subtract your previous yourselves from that. So current your sells minus previous year cells. Once you have that told you. Divide it by that same previous year sales and will give you the percentage of growth between last year and this year. I haven't easy peasy. Easy peasy so you can look at that from not just last year to this year but you can look at it year over year over year and get that trend line and make sure you're having steady growth. Make sure you're having manageable growth. Make sure you're managing your growth correctly. So yeah beautiful beautiful so that one. I think a lot of people are pretty comfortable with day because this is this is something that they're probably already doing. Hopefully in most businesses are looking at some sort of growth ratio. If you're not it's it's an easy one to get into. It's it's like a it's like a gateway ratio. Aw Welcome yeah I once free. Oh Gee I had to drive a home. You didn't get it Okay okay see I was thinking gateway I'm going to Disneyland Gates just opened and I was a little kid. You were going there. Oh I was taking you to Disneyland. You're taking me to a theme park the financial rat of lifetime. Jeez okay so next one that we're going to jump into his contribution margin now contribution margin is really. What's left over to cover your fixed cost or your fixed expenses? We did did an episode Just a few weeks back on break even where we talk about contribution margin and in this one were going to just just give you the calculation and honestly so contribution margin doesn't necessarily need to be in in this mix of ratios. It's just such an important step to get to break even and and exactly and it helps you understand break even a little bit better. So Oh for sure me personally when I am doing my own ratio analysis. I just do break even because it covers contribution margin in it but this is your first step to break even so so. Let's go ahead and do the calculation so the calculation is one minus your variable expense percentage percentage that that's what the calculation is. Let me break that down because that might be a little bit confusing if people were like whoa. I don't even know what you just said. You didn't go from one to sixty you. Went from forty five to six people are waiting at one like wait a second so in every business business. I've got my fixed costs and I've got my variable costs fixed costs. Are those costs that are going to be there whether or or not I have sales. It doesn't mean that they don't move. That's that's a common misconception. It just means that they're always going to be there so things like rent things like take a lot of my labor costs are going to go into a fixed cost. You know My utility bills. You know these kinds of things are all going to go into a fixed cost so what. I'm looking at my expense. I'M GONNA break out my fixed costs and then everything that's left over. Becomes a variable cost variable costs. They move in relation relation to sales and so if I'm purchasing goods to turn around and sell right as a variable costs if I have some direct labor to manufacture those goods. That's variable costs if I offer sales commissions. That's variable cost so I'm going to take all of these costs. These variable costs and I'm going to take them ask ask a percentage of sales and that's going to be my variable costs percentage or my variable expense percentage. And then all I needed to get. It is the inverse of that that's why it's one minus variable expense percentage so if thirty five percent of my sales sales for every dollar I sell if it costs me thirty five cents to you. Know Manufacture my widget. I have a thirty five percent variable costs. I take one minus variable cost my contribution margin is sixty five percent beautiful. Did we cover it. Okay we're all caught up okay. We're all at sixty weekend so the next step is your break even and I think this is a really funny funny one to approach a lot of times because people they shoot for that break even they wanna go for that break-even but here's the kicker break-even equals zero break even is Zumra. You accomplish nothing. It's not the Tuban helpless. Nothing you've accomplished quite a bit. Actually it's just that like you've got to keep going a lot beyond that to make it worth it right so we talked about the risk versus reward in a previous episode. And and you've risk Schal out at this point and have yet to see the rewards of it so we wanNA keep moving past. We want to be able to calculate this break even move beyond that so the break even point is again. It's at which point your sales cover all of the expenses of your business. There's no profit and there's no loss right So again once you have Once you have that contribution margin. That's why it's so important to include this and again it can add some valuable insight into your business calculating looking at contribution margin But you take your fixed expenses. So we talked about separating those out now we're going to bring those back in fix expenses and you're going to divide that by that contribution margin percent that you just calculated in the last ratio And so we went a little fast on this one. If you want to dive in deep the episode that we just did on on break even is really where you're going to want to jump in because we take you through some actual example some numbered examples to show. Oh you break even and contribution margin how to use break even but all I really want to cover in this episode is the reminder that these are all All helping us understand the profitability of the company if I have sales growth but my break even and is getting chipped away if it's getting harder and harder and harder to hit break even even though my sales are growing the story is watch out buddy. You're in trouble. Yeah and so. What coming less efficient? Yeah and WANNA see. All the time is I'll see these businesses that they will focus so heavily on sales growth and ignore this break even piece and then all of a sudden they wake up one day. And there's IT's like water. Yeah like what in the world just happened doing so good And now the camp. They can't pay their debts and they can't you know yeah. Yeah they're they're they're they're just they're just not where they thought they would be with all of these. You know all these sales numbers coming in. And so so you're really looking at the full story story going on with profitability. And you know the story starts with sales but it ends with prophets and you have to have both and break even really tells you what's going beyond that. Yeah these are all indicators as to how healthy your businesses how how well you're managing and running your business and so let's jump down. We've we've got the last two that we want to cover You know we've got this gross margin. We've got this profit margin. They're essentially saying the same thing but One is looking at kind of the maybe the what. What do I want to call this at at your gross margin all? We're taking out his. Were just looking at the gross profit and were saying. I'm just looking at like my cost of goods. I I WANNA WANNA know. What does it take for me to sell my goods? Now I'll tell you and I've had some different accountants disagree with me on this but I am going to apologize to you. Know all the accountants out there who are listening and you know if you WANNA call me out on it go to our twitter S. M. Small Business and you can tweet how. I'm completely wrong here but I wanNA hold true to this and that is if I have a cost of goods sold it means I sell L. goods if I may service based company that does not sell goods I do not have a cost of goods. Sold therefore therefore I don't have a gross profit therefore I don't have a gross margin so you really only want to calculate gross margin if if you have a cost of goods and you really only should do a cost of goods. If you're a product based company not a service based company so I just I want to insert insert something here redeem me. No no no no no no rename you so if if there's backlash on twitter winter which I assume there will be. I just want everybody to know that while he's out there staking claim on he's calling on my on this hill bill. I'm going to be cowering back here in the shadows letting it happen. So if you'RE GONNA call him out you know m small Biz on twitter. Call Out Ryan Not Ryan. Brian Super Easy. Just make that distinction make that distinction. Oh Man but when we're talk about the margins this you know when people say I've got good margins on that product that's what they're saying they're saying what's the gross margin. The calculation is simple yet. I take my gross. The profit I divide it by sales and that gives me my gross margin so super easy calculation. But it really only comes into play when when you're a product based company and I'll tell you any good production manager they know this stuff. Yeah exactly. This isn't new stuff stuff and so if you're production manager doesn't know this stuff you probably shouldn't have hired your nephew. He's going to say I feel like I feel like half of our at least least half of our audience just laughs if you're production manager. They're like what production. My nephew doesn't know Jack. Aw but the one that I care about is profit margin because this goes with every business every business has a profit margin Bengo and I like to look at it this way so I I use this little saying. For every dollar of Sales Dell's my business has whatever. Your profit margin is in terms of cents to Improv. I said that really complicated. DidN'T I. Yeah you could try again. I'll let you try again to rewind if I have a ten percent profit margin for every everydollar in sales. I have ten cents in profits. Sure how did I do that time. I was better was better. Yeah Okay So. The calculation relation on profit margin is just my net profits over my sales. That's all I have to do. And the thing. That's so interesting is we're trying to drive profitability. You can't spend sales right. You know you can only spend prophets. The owner gets the take home profits. They they don't get to take home sales exactly and so if I'm losing margin but my sales are increasing at starts to become a red flag. You know that's the story that is being told here exactly so again. A lot of these things are are looking at the the health of Your Business. Business and the effectiveness thereof right so self growth is looking at how much growing year over year. So you can can then come back to make sure. You're managing not appropriately. Make sure you're watching Contribution margin break even are really really looking at making sure that your efficiencies are are where they should be in that. You're not going to go out of business with record sales right. Yeah and then the same thing with gross margin And I also I'm step back into the ring here. I also like profit margin a lot better but again with profit margin Making sure that your prophets are where they should be that as a business owner that your your reward is is there you know you made this risk. You overcame the risk. And now you get to reap your rewards. That's what this is all about right. Otherwise why are we do right so so I I want to. I want to let listeners know that when we go through these financial ratios first off. We're going pretty quickly because on a podcast episode you know it's a little tricky to get into ratio analysis. But it's important and that's why we're doing it is because you know find another show out there. That's willing to tackle this important of a topic. That's that's difficult to do but if we went too fast I would recommend that you you know look it up you can find all of these ratios. They're they're they're pretty uncommon and so you can find them easily online and go through Ron a couple examples and you know reach out to us with questions or whatever. What if you have we're going to be continuing with other ratios and we're going to? You know go ratio analysis. I will tell you that here. Marketing management and money we use seventeen in different ratios. That's what we focus on is just their seventeen ratios. You might have more or less. That are going to work for you. But these are the ones that we're going to cover and so in future episodes will be getting into you know the the balance sheet ratios will get an in the cashflow ratios You know and and covering all of these topics so we appreciate you being with us. Yeah St Stick and sticking to it and and and it hang out the whole time. Hopefully you learn something. Yeah absolutely if you want to reach out on twitter. That's at 'em small business if you WANNA fight with Ryan about these ratios if you WanNa give me me I five on twitter at 'em small Biz. We also have trainings. That can go through this more in depth. Fill free to reach out however you need to. We look forward to another episode. Next week we'll see that and be sure to subscribe shared man.

"Today's show is prerecorded. Yanni. Our. Old. Okay. Only. Your. Turn. Show will good morning everybody you listen to the voice. Come on dig now. What it only Steve. Harvey got a radio, show and man. Almost forgot I had one this morning. I'm okay I'll tell you why I'm at a little bit. You get around man so much, but. Man Good Morning. Everybody Oh. You know today. I I was having a conversation with my wife last night. and. We were talking about our plan. We often sit down. You know just like a married couple of me. You know married, you know we have children. We have aspirations. We have hopes we I mean. We have things we want. You know when you're married, you know. I mean it's important which apartment? I'm not telling you anything you don't know. It's common sense. Really it's important to sit down with the person that you've chosen decided to share your life with and have multiple conversations on a lot of things, and we try to make sure that all of our conversations aren't always just business related and always kid related. You know because that that that becomes. It's a part of it, but it. It waste so much on the marriage that because that that's the grunt work of being married. You know your children, your family, your bills your mortgage. Your your car notes. You know what's do what's coming up and if you're not careful. You'll you'll start. Debt becomes the focal point of you all's conversation. And this woman or man or person that you've decided to have this life with all of a sudden. They're an extension of your business. And you guys become business partners, or whatever and just get so anyway I'm just saying that that is important. Sit Down and had these conversations, but it's even more important to have the conversation. She knows it's important with the person that you plan on making a run with to sit down and talk about other things you know, own a more upbeat note you know. We were having a conversation that she was reminding me of what she loved about me, and then I in turn, was turned around telling her the things. Things that I admired about her and loved about her and we Kinda. Have these all the time you know where we sit down and we talk about the things that we still enjoy about one another all we may talk about some of the things that we miss in one another, but we constantly had these conversations about appreciation you know is so important man that other person feels appreciated so these things important, but we got into the conversation deeper last night and I was telling her about this idea that I had. And I wanted her to help me with an and make a phone call for me because she knows these people and I was going to be doing this and my wife reminded me of something. Not once again you know as always you know what I'm talking to you, I. Just keep his real as I. Can I don't know the Bible inside out I? I can't quote to you scriptures and tell you exactly where it is i. just you know I heard a say, but it kind of blew by me. I was I was telling you about something. I wanted to make happen, and she reminded me the desert scripture somewhere in somebody emailed it to me today I'm sure. Where the Bible reminds us not to be anxious for anything. Don't be anxious for something and you know it really mattered to me at that point yesterday that she bought this to my attention, because how many times I've been guilty of that in my past. And I've learned better now, but every now and then I need to be reminded. And I think what that what what she was saying to me. Was You know I've gotten to a point in my life, and we all should get to a point where you know. You've heard people say this. If you're GonNa pray about something, then don't worry about it and if you're gonNA worry about it, don't pray about it. Back to this. Be Anxious for nothing. Don't if you going to trusting God didn't do that. And trust in him. Mean sometimes you got to be patient. God has never been too late. You don't know the plan he has. You don't know you don't really always know his wheel. You definitely don't know his route his way of doing anything, so he's always on time. He's always been now on time for me. He's always been there on time for you. How many times have you thought it was over only to find out? It's really just begun. How many times have people row, chew off. Those of you who have lost jobs, but you are still maintaining, but man God is already began to turn around process for many of us. Some of US lost jobs, and now have better jobs, some of lost jobs, and now has forced us to rekindle that dream, and that vision for business. We had it sometimes. The mishap is thing you need to make something good happen. See A lot of times. We get so comfortable in our life where we just We complacent we, we just settling in and win misses it, and this is what I'm doing, but in actuality God has a tremendous amount of abundance for you. He has an amazing amount of things. He has all these boxes packaged up with your name on them that he's willing to ship if you would just. Align yourself with some of his wheel, so you could get some of these things. How many times have you thought it was over and it didn't really Gov. How many times have you thought had well this? Is it and it? Wouldn't it at all? Well? How many times do you thought? Don't look like this. Go and work out and it didn't work out, but there's something better came along. How many times has that happened? You. You've got to realize man I was talking to a family who had got displaced from the Katrina. thing that happened down in new, Orleans and man out when they said yeah, we got a displaced from Katrina and I braced myself because the whole war was me. Here comes this story I got to hear this and I gotta be encouraging. Think something. It was totally different. They totally totally blew me away. Man, the brother said man is actually the best thing that ever happened to my family. And I, won't he? Yeah, he said because what happened was he said I got settled in. He say, plus I was doing some things outside of my marriage down there. He said I was doing some stuff in the streets. I need to be doing he. It all got washed away. We thought I. Life would never be the same, but he cement. Need to be say. He say man now we live opean Texas. We got a house. Don't know nobody he said. I ain't got nobody I know to get into trouble with. He Man Outta rediscovered my wife how beautiful she really is! How much my family really was counting on me, and he managed straight me up. Man He so so I gotTa tell you. It was the best thing that ever happened to me now. That's not always the case. But it's how you look at a situation, but just don't be anxious for anything. 'cause. God got a fix for you. If you just let him work, so just stay on, course, stay focused. Don't lose faith. Don't be anxious. Man, just just stay in the wheel that God work which he got some great stuff in store for you.

He is sixty three and I am forty nine, his ex wife, and I have become good friends, and she told me that he is a good man, but a terrible husband. We live in a big beautiful home, but it's in his name. Only he treats me like a queen in front of others, but behind closed doors. He's a different man. is Ex wife cheated on him because he was gone a lot as a fireman, he told me he took. Took extra shifts to take care of his family, but his ex wife said all of his extra shifts where with women all over town. I believe what his ex wife tells me about him, and he can't stand that we're close. I have continued to try to work it out with him, and we are finally talking about marriage. There are only so many issues with him. There are so many issues with him. He calls. is Ex wife a garden tool? And he gets upset if I try to defend her, he says I have misplaced loyalty then there is the issue of him being a trump supporter, and he has contributed to his campaign several times. Our finances are separate. So I'm not concerned with what he does with this money but I don't know how he can support the current president I will be fifty soon and I want to be sure I am not wasting time with this guy I hate to uproot and start over, so please help me. We have great sex, and he is a great father to his children. Is that enough to stick it out another seven years to make this relationship work? Okay, this letter is about a whole lot of stuff I mean. It's a lot dating for seven years. Friends with his ex wife who says he's a good man. Terrible husband, trump supporter all those things you know, stick out to me in the letter, but like I said it's a lot going on in this letter. I'm assuming you want to marry him. But you know. Why have you been with him? This long seven years without a ringer anything. Are you still trying to. Figure it out. Are you still trying to do that? I think it depends on who you believe. Do you believe his ex wife because she does know a lot? But, she did her dirt to so, can you really trust her? Is She trying to get back in there? I'm sure that he doesn't. Want you guys to be friends? I'm sure about that because. Of what she could still reveal to you about him I. Mean You know and do you love this guy? Do you love him? Never wants day here. You mentioned that. I don't really hear that in the letter. You say he's the trump supporter that bothers you. You know behind closed doors. He treats you differently than he does in front of people in front of people. He treats you like a quyen that bothers you. The good things you do have to say about him or not many. You said he's a great dad, and the sex is great, and you want to know if this is enough well, is it? Is it to you just these two things and I'm GonNa? Tell you I don't think so. I think you need a lot more to make a good marriage. Stick and a good marriage work so. I think you know you ask the question? Should you spend another seven years with? This guy doesn't look like it so far. I would have to say no. Steve. I don't really see the redeeming qualities. In here. I don't know why you why are you writers? You dating this guy seven years he sixty three, you forty nine. Unum became cool. Would his ex wife? Already. This is starting to not smell good. She told you.

His death comes several months after he revealed that doctors were treating him for stage for pancreatic cancer representative Lewis served on the House of Representatives for more than three decades more than thirty years Steve According to the black information network representative, Lewis was one of the original freedom riders. He was the youngest keynote speaker from the nineteen sixty three march on Washington he was the leader of the bloody Sunday March and Selma Alabama back in nineteen, sixty, five and I. Want you right now to take a listen to Reverend Jim Clyburn of South Carolina. He's going to talk about our hero and his friend Congressman, John Lewis. You're GONNA, Miss, John, Lewis. But John Lewis. WILL BE EPA. Hearts. Minds and yes, in our souls. I'm doing this tape. Doing Sunrise because I do believe that it's a sun set on John Lewis Life last night. The Sun rises on the movement. That will never die. Thank you, John. Rest in police are breath. Yet you know he was who devoted his entire self for for the for the right of Justice and equality for black people. I mean this Dumais was so well respected. In Washington. Everybody respected him. You know with the exception of the president who he respects nobody. John Lewis Mel was a cool dude I the last time I saw him. Was that the beloved event a Chick-fil-a. We did together in Atlanta. At Mercedes Benz Stadium and Bruno. Mars performed. We had a funny moment will stage. And as lady came up on stage was part of presentation and she started dancing. And I stepped in front of him because I on stage widows it now now now now. Dance with no damn by. DONALD DONALD TRUMP CDs you you ask on tweet so kind of a cool moment we had, but he was always mad at the forefront of the fight for Justice and equality for black people. He didn't care how you felt about it. He didn't care what you thaw. I mean this dude was the real front line soldier, and if it wasn't for John Lewis, we are not where we are today. In terms of Civil Rights Voting Rights Act integration. Housing schooling. Prison reform. This man right hill didn't miss out on no causes he was that guy all right? Coming up is our last break of the day. You Rather. All right. Coming up and forty nine minutes after the one Steve Harvey is here with some closing remarks right after this you're listening to. Morning Show. Here, we are our last break of the day on this Monday. It's been a good day. Yeah yeah, it's been a good day every day. What are they? What did I you all right Steve you can. Let us have it very. Enough, something's on your mind. Well, you know, I just so count to reiterate. To make sure we get focused here. The election is in November. And we need to get focused. We need to make sure. That of us are registered voters. And that everyone in our family that is of age is a registered voter. And, then we need to prepare. To vote early. And if you don't vote early, we have to make sure we show up to vote on that day. This is probably one of the most important elections of our lifetime. I think the election of Barack. Obama was one of the life time achievements for me personally and for a lot of us, because I personally thought I would never live to see the day. that a black man would be president of this country. I was wrong. God is good. But this election might here is so important for us because we are. In a time where? This! Black lives matter movement. Can really take foam. And the reason I'm saying that is because first of all. We have more than just black people. Fighting this calls right now. I went online to Nike of the day in the first thing that popped up was black lives matter. Watching a lot of. Companies pay attention to it now talk about it and now is the time to do something about this thing. This is a wrong that can be right it over a long time. Now I'm not hearing much in terms of government policy right now. But. I see a lot of corporations trying to fix some things. And so this this movement has really taking. Hold and I really do appreciate the young people's efforts out there. With that being said we've got to make sure. that. We get the job done in November that we've cast our votes. That we make ourselves heard that we put a stamp on the black lives movement. We put a seal of approval on the black lives matter movement because black lives matter most. Would we have to be counted neat. Black lives matter most who we show that we can change the direction of election. So we've got to get this thing done. And we got to be focused y'all. None of this foolishness. This Konya running for president in twenty twenty, making statements about Harriet Tubman didn't really free slaves. She had them working for other. White people. This tiber. These things. Are we kidding me? We have we don't have time for this? We really don't. J. Anthony Brown said it best off the air. We were talking. We ain't got time for this man. This is a serious election coming up in November. We have a president that is so divisive. And he figured since he's not gonNA. Get the black vote. He's gotTa make sure. He gets every divisive white vote that he can. So he uses rhetoric that incites his base. He's saying that black lives matter in the confederate flag is freedom of speech. He's not saying anything one way or the other. He doesn't see how we allowing these people to erase our history our history. See this history that Donald. Trump is talking about is what his hat was about in the beginning that make America great again. His view of making America great again goes back to a time period. Where just wasn't good for us? But he's comfortable with that. And that's what he's trying to do. Now this is what he's trying to do. To get re-elected. If you let him win again. And he doesn't have to concern himself with being reelected. What measures would he take? I mean he's done some. Astonishing things. As a president sitting on his desk, posing behind some beings, I mean stuff that you've never seen happened in the White House. Negative comments about people directly people's appearance. He's always lashing out at some African American whether it's the movement whether it's Colin Kaepernick with this the athletes kneeling, but it's always directed at something. We're doing because he knows how to his base. We've got to get serious about this November election y'all I'm not gonNA stop. I'm not going to stop until everybody says you know what he's right. We have to vote. We've said it before and over and over again, but I can't even tell you how important this is. This is so important for us as a people. Because I'm telling you, we can send a message. See. This the way they lobby for our votes. And, then get in there and do nothing. See, but this time though. They think we're going to be disinterested in the election. But we're going to fool them. We are very interested in this election. We are tied at you. Never having said anything about all breeze death. You say anything about George Floyd Steph. You didn't say anything about Eric. Gardner, you have said anything to make the oppressed people in this country. Any better you haven't said one thing to make black people think that you even would consider anything that there possibly feel it. 'cause you don't. And since you don't, we don't either. We.

MBA1620 Q&A Wednesday: Whats the best mic for podcasting?
"Welcome to the hundred dollars show Biz building goodness every single day with their daily. Lessons for the real world. I'm your host, your coach teacher. Omar's then home I'm also the CO founder of the hundred. Dollar. Mba. Company business training and community online and said he's episode is a human a Wednesday episode on our hyun Wednesday episodes. I answer a question from one of you. One of our listeners. If you have a question you want to ask just email me over at Omar at one zero. Zero NBA Dot net today's Kushner's from Norman and Norman asks what's the best Mike for podcasting Hey Lemar looking star a podcast for myself. You've been an inspiration. So I WANNA start my own but I'm totally lost when it comes to choosing the right microphone. There's so many choices out there and I'm not really sure which one I actually need. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot Omar Love, the show Norman. Grisham Norman and congratulations on starting your own podcast. Love it. So in today's Cuny Wednesday will be answering Norman's question I'll talk about what your best options when it comes to microphones for podcasting now I know there's a lot of choices like Norman mentioned some really give you the straight answer. The straight juice on Wigan need to record your podcasts with a great Mike. An actually share with you something more than just your microphone, how to actually create the right environment so that with a good microphone. The quality of your recording will skyrocket even with a low cost microphone also talk about what are the differences between the more expensive microphones and a less expensive one, a more rural one, and do actually need to go that high market. We get into all that end more hint today's episode Sa-, let's get into it. Let's get down to business. Support for today's show comes from podium. Are you looking to put together and sell an online course downloadable of some kind or start a membership site? One of the biggest challenges in doing that is the technology how do you put together your sales pages and your course pages to make sure access is secure and collect payment there's so many complications and there's so many complicated options out there. This is why we love podium podium is the easiest way to sell any kind of online course downloadable or. Start selling a membership I'm speaking out of experience. I. Use podium to sell our courses. What I love about it is that it's clean it's great looking and it simple. So I don't fiddle around in fact, I put together my last online course in about one hour I'm talking about eighty Z. done but don't take my word for it a try four free sign up for Podesta's fourteen day trial over at portia dot com slash NBA again, that's podium P. O. D. I A. dot com slash NBA. To, kick off his answer to the Cuny Wednesday question. What is the best Mike for podcasting? WanNa start by saying that I've done a ton of research on this topic. I've done a incredible amount of experimentation We've recorded over sixteen hundred episodes of this podcast and every single time record an episode. We try so many different things to improve the quality of the audio of the sound of the edit to continually be professional and compete with professional podcasts. So I'm not going to geek out on giving you all these different types of microphones you can buy on. Ana, give you the summation of what I've learned over the years. Will you really need to know what I would tell somebody if they're getting started with a podcast? Actually going to start somewhere completely different somewhere. The whole thing to do with microphones because you can have a state of the art microphone that costs five hundred dollars plus but it will do you. No. Good. If you're space is awful if we're you record is not a good space as conducive to recording, it doesn't matter what you're going to use to record for example, very court my podcast with a great quality Mike but There's construction going on there's noises dog barking I'm in a room with high. Ceilings and no installation that record is going to sound straight trash. Okay. It doesn't matter that you have a great Mike because your environment is horrible. Good news is that you can easily manager environment and make sure that wherever you record, it's actually conducive to agree recording. So one of the things I highly recommend is your cord either in a walk in closet or closet, the has shelving the bare minimum have your mic on a shelf in a closet and you record into that shelving into the closet. Because your voice is being projected towards the mayank into the closet, and because the shelving is kind of. Confined like into a box, your voice is not going to be bouncing around a lot across the room. It's going to be confined to the closet. This is sort of creating a makeshift soundproofing or sound booth. This is going sound a whole lot better than you just having your Mike at your desk in a big room. The next level up is to actually record in a sound proofing box. This is an actual Foam box has soundproofing that you place your mic inside. And you place that box into a closet or a shelf, and this really makes everything sound like studio quality. It's incredible and your listeners just using a portable soundproof box that you can buy Amazon it's about two hundred dollars, but it's actually worth more than the actual Mike it's actually going to improve the quality of your audio more than the actual. Mike. Itself I actually. Just. Looked it up on Amazon and the one I was thinking of a travel on, which is two hundred dollars. There's actually an alternative one that is in portable, but it's only thirty six bucks. It's called the choice studio sound recording, vocal booth thirty, six dollars. It's basically a box me out of foam where you can place your mic inside and talk right into it. That is going to make a tremendous difference. Now, let's talk about Mike's There are whole much of mine because I can go through but I'm GonNa give you two mikes. One that I would say is absolutely amazing for the price and you can actually use for all your podcasting with that soundproofing for as long as you like, and the second one is going to be if you insist on buying something expensive, this is the one I recommend. So the first one is the Audio Technica eighteen or twenty, one, hundred, it retails for about one hundred bucks on Amazon it's a be an xl are Mike, which is great. That means if it's used. To your computer and record using your recording software right on your computer or they're using quicktime or Daswani, or garage band or whatever using record your audio. Now I mentioned ex- LAR-. It also does acceler excellent actual cable that needs to go into a sound or quarter like a Zumra quarter if you don't own talking about then this is kind of technical and you may want to Google that but if you're interested in recording on your Laptop than you have to get a Mike, this be compatible which is this one, the audio tape, a tr twenty, one, hundred. This is why I think is one of the best Mike's you can buy period for podcasting for a webinars for calls. It's fantastic. It's really really an amazing quality Mike. It's on intellectual mish means that when you speak into the mic picks up your voice and it does its best of not picking up. Anything that's around in the room. So even if somebody's shouting across the hallway, if you're in a different room, it won't pick up normally I would just end this episode right now to say, Hey, this is the Mike you need. Go with the one hundred two fantastic Mike. Gray value It's reliable. It's You know last pretty long time I've had a belief four, eight yards five. Not because they break, just because I've had one for travel one for podcasting on my desk, Nicole's gone one, my co-founder and wife. So all that stuff we we like it so much keep behind it. It's a great Mike I would also recommend getting one of those foam covers on top of the Mike you can get like a bag of them like I said a ten for like five bucks on Amazon this. will allow you to have some protection from what's called pluses. This is when you use your PS and bs and you're really pushing a lot of air out of your mouth. This protects the MIC from getting all sounding weird and Wendy. It's sort of a pop filter so to speak so I would recommend adding that to the MIC as well. Now, if you insist on geeking out and spending a lot of money then I recommend. The shore SM Seven Be The shore Mayank is the Mike. You probably see in the very, very fancy studios on other big podcast, the Joe, Rogan experience and Mark Marins podcast. It's known as the legend because it's been around for practically forever, and because the Mike is just great great quality to keep improving the technology of course but the core elements of this Mike has been known for being amazing not only for podcasting but for music recording it's a well known because Michael Jackson Thriller was actually recorded with this Mike. Now, this Mike is not a USB Mike, an ex alarm, mike which. Means, you can't just plug it right to your computer without a mixer. So you'll have to buy mixer separately. The other option is to record your audio with audio recorder the. One I recommend is the zoom recorders. This is like a handheld or quarter that a lot of studios use a film crews use, and you basically save the Audio on as D. Cards, and you plug xl our cable to that recorder my favorite Zimmer. Quarter. H Four. N It's pretty good. Bang for your bucks about two hundred, seventy dollars. It lasts a lifetime. We actually recorded the hundred Ambi- shows I I would say four hundred episodes with Zumra quarter with xl cables with our. Mike. But we actually didn't see too much of a big difference between using excellent and be so for convenience and for speed and for travel, we started using USB Mike's and straight to the computer connection just. Using quicktime I wanna say the shore Mike is Fantastic. But for the vast majority of the world's population, they will not know the difference between you using the twenty, one hundred or the shore because it's just a subtle difference in terms of quality, it's just a different kind of sound and even if you're listening to it side by side like one clip from this one clip from that one it's really hard to to really. Know the difference unless you're an audio file and you really know your stuff but for the vast majority of listeners of podcasts, if it just sounds cleaning crisp and good, they're happy. Now if you love the sound of this podcast and you, he won't might use a wanted to sound just as good will stay tuned I'll share with you that information right after this message from our sponsor.

Now the traded cub crypto show talking business in blockchain. Everybody welcome to the show. Hope wakened. If you'll still having a wicked, you're enjoying it, and that will put you in the hemisphere. Hello to Nolan hemisphere friends. All right. So what happened over the weekend? We'll kind of us as jested might have happened in that video. I put out across Facebook in my socials. Now on those, of course, you mad go get across my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube page at tried to call across all of those. Oh, so go ahead and get involved. But look, it's just going very solid. Whereas as always liked to talk through the side of the wake, I with a top ten run through and look, go, be honest with bitcoin. There's nothing happening. It's really straightforward. This pullback in that cradles on, we've seen a very sort of Wiki tot Canada with no Haina lobe closing around at where it happened, Saturday's Canada was very small with very little volatility going on. And then against Sunday, also very close to close in our and a half. And if we look at the four out, but you actually go and have a look at it, it's just very sideways and look. It's no surprise not at all. Nothing surprised to me. Why is that? Because of the weekends, we do tend to see the quality drops. With certain extent, there is still some volume, but not a great deal unless there's some mental being carried into the weekend. It's June. It's generally a period of time where I daren't tried and it's good because you're not gonna family, and it's good to take some time out from staring at the markets. All you go damn life. And that takes time to relax. Do whatever it is that tickles your fancy and looking here. Now the theory and I can tell you what the theory and there was a pullback your that cradles. I'm not happened on the close the candidate closed Saturday morning. Now I didn't go ahead and raise the orders for that. I can because it's the weekend, but also it goes a massive divergence on the chart. Now it is starting to look. I mean, so it is starting to look like it's been going sideways that that's the first thing to to sort of suggest. And look this very strong divergence there. And once they are going to say, is the weekly still massively over extended, not pulled back. We've not been in that cradles iron since the sixteenth of July. So it's been a very long time dropping and look at does cover extended. I'm not suggesting this is the bottom for theory, no way in the world. I wouldn't do that. I don't do that a Ray, the charts and in downtown, but there's just nothing there for me right now. Bitcoin cash. Really boring, really slow, really average really know of any interest to me Ailes now he's wants a little bit more interesting sort of holding out maybe even giving a little consolidation. Let me have a quick look. They might be the potential for bright cat to the upside haven. It's a little while on eighty to see a lot more, but it's definitely looking a little more positive than most of the charts out there. Donna is finally slowed down also consoled I didn't quite nicely. They, it has been. It's been getting absolute baiting, especially against bitcoin with bitcoin, sort of holding its value. Any other outlets fallings fooling at a great route right of knots again. Instead of bitcoin, which is obvious because they cost against each other, but there's nothing really going on there as well was still still flat. The saw as we have been for a long time a little bit resistant, seven at twenty one cent Mark, and that is a live on going to be keeping an eye on actually as we build up into that point moving along to near his thing within the always watching for potential break had over the weekend. Now did console into the level. It didn't give me a place to put a stop loss. And if I'm honest, when it broke Bronco wasn't that a watch because I just I wanted to say console throughout the weekend. It didn't do that. And there's nothing really to talk about beyond that is the sign very Sawas ripple. Also sitting very saw as actually sitting struggling with the resistance to that twenty eight cent Mark. Now, when I look at the markets look Zumra with the Wakefield, the monthly identical homework, which is putting in the lines, the support and resistance launch, going way back and with the law and hip. You know, if you draw around twenty cents and go all the way back into. Basically these Tom last year, you'll know there's this really strong level of resistance, and then then ripple do break at in December and hey, selling for some. So hasten perspective for you on crypto in general, like so riffle Las, Jay. It did well full from June through till December. It didn't do a great deal. It sat between a range of about thirty cents and thirteen cents, so it just went very sideways. Then in December, like the dight broke out of the resistance was the eleventh of December. So the eleventh of December, we went to twenty nine cents. Well, we pay, we tell you, this is interesting. This is some wonderful perspective. We pay on the fourth of January nor even a month. We paid on the fourth of January at a high of three dollars thirty. They guy there's some perspective. So within less than a month, we went from thirty cents to three dollars thirty. Multiple. Eleven times growth. So I feel sitting there wondering was in the market doing what I wanted to do wasn't going, why am I bawled? Why is it not happening? Just because just what you tend not to suggest that it's going to happen again because it hasn't happened this year. Not at all, not once this year. Have we seen these massive pumps across the market as a whole? We had cinema year in year and it might take a bit longer. This is definitely being a trader's market as I look at lot here again, very uninspired looking pretty average Debbie. This has definitely been a market for traders. The volatilities Bain there. She's been more to the downside when a has gone up. It's gone up in short little shop bursts. And again, for trade is we've been doing well because we look for entries and exits. We're not just looking for entries now, of course, as an investor, if you've got projects, you believe in, you might be building positions throughout this period because we have got good. We say, process pullback, whether they're good processes on up, you know, truth will be taller than long-term, but we have had opportunities now. Now it's a matter of just whiting if you're not going to trade, if you're trying to matter of acting. So you got to work it which one you want. It's. Try it as year this year. I mean there's been nine months where if you've been huddling you've probably been saying your portfolio diminish, if not, I'm so stoked view, and if you have on this is the reality check this happens. But year investing time, worry, relaxed. You've got a plan in place for those that are sort of sitting there and watching it every single day. Then why should time if you wanna watch it every day, get involved in London, trae guard. So that's pretty straightforward. Pretty simple.

I'd also like to welcome you to throwback thursday. This is a segment where we take an end up. Look at someone who story has evolved considerably since we first featured them today feature. We'll hear from the founder of a service called focus. I think of his service as being a business built for the zumra even though it started at least a year or two before then so focused made us all about helping people who work alone work productively over the past year. I've heard from a lot of listeners. New remote work situations many them have been struggling. Others have been succeeding sometimes. It's some of both right. You could be struggling one day and then succeeding the next. It's not so black and white. I think it's also good to remember that you are not necessarily productive during every minute of your job if you're at an office or workplace right so you're not a failure if you become distracted sometimes at home as well still being able to work. Effectively and productively is a huge need. That's important to many people. As i said focused mate definitely in the right place the right time helping lots of folks what has happened since they first launched a couple years ago. Let's hear directly from taylor founder. He's now operating at full time. I will come back at the end to wrap this up last year. Showed us that you never know what life is going to throw at you. Use credit cards to pay for unexpected expenses. It can be overwhelming to manage that debt. take control with upstart. You know exactly what to expect if debt is taking over your life.

I'm in new york city in united states and my side is actually my day job now. A startup called focus and yeah it was on episode seven. Fifty one focused me is really a community of people who generally work alone from home. We're interested in being more focused and more intentional with their time and the main way that we do that is to people get paired up for a fifty minute video call where they keep each other company and show their accountable while the haege work on their own projects for me. I had this pain. When i started working from home ten years ago and at the time i was like an office and having people around structure in a place to go that provides a lot of support and accountability and camaraderie these things that i took for granted at the time. So yeah now a lotta people are have had that that experience for the first time realizing it can be can be lonely can be really hard to get your butt in the see. It can be hard to sort of stave off other distractions. There's a lot of challenges that come at the way we just got started. It was just saying. Hey this is a hack and if you're interested in doing this with other people just joined this facebook group and i was really how we started to validate. This was something that more than just a tweet me wanted to do and then from there was like okay. How do we make this really easy software to make a real easy you know. There's many other possibilities in terms of what the product do to make that experience awesome. But yet i it's just facebook group so we were four hundred weekly users. Last time we spoke were at four thousand now ten times the number of users every my suggestion would be to keep things simple and specifically to really focus on. How can i solve this problem. Like getting away from on building a product right. Like we're you know we're blink building software and we have so many ideas of what it could be and what it looked like what it can do whatever and if you get too distracted by that i think it can pull you away from just like. Are we solving really painful problem that people have. And how can we do that. Because if may not be software right. Some of the initial steps throughout the entire journey might not be software so just really stay plugged into. How can we solve this problem and it helps that. I'm i'm one of our target users. Able like think of a moment in the life of the person. You're trying to help in like what's going on and then how are you. How are you going to participate in that moment to change the story for a so like the focus may be like i'm feeling really love right now and you know left to my own devices i would just go get some pizza and ice cream but i know that what will make me feel better. Is i meditate and actually work on this blog that writing you know what if somebody feeling what are they doing and how. We can participate in their lives So that it doesn't become about moving pixels around and adding new things that do things on screen awesome. Thank you so much taylor. Just a couple of notes. I wanted to add myself. I think this is a really interesting service. As i said you know built for the remote work zoom era i can check it out at focus. Mate dot com. I also thought you know you can do this on your own. A couple of good friends of mine. Jonathan fields clay bear. They have this writing session that they do a couple of times a week. I think they just get on and they they're kind of working simultaneously. But not on the same things writes. They've created their own little focus mate but of course this service makes it really easy to facilitate connections and such. They even have a free version where you can do it. I think three times a week without paying anything and also this is my other comment. They have some really cheap plans like it just costs five dollars a month. I think what taylor said. He has four thousand users now. So if you do the math there you're like well that's really good amount of recurring income but just from a business perspective here. I would be shocked if they couldn't make a lot more money. Just by adding a single premium even for ten dollars a month. She can keep that five dollar among tier. Don't take anything away from those people. Add a premium option of some kind. You know ten dollars a month even if it was just seven eight nine dollars a month. I really feel like ten dollars. A month is reasonable and they could get away with that without any complaints at all. You definitely make a lot more money so just a suggestion there. But i'm really glad it's going well. This segment overall throwback thursday was one of the most popular new features of twenty twenty. So as you've heard were keep it going this year as well. Let me know what you think. And who. you'd like to see featured from our archives of well over a thousand stories. I guess it's over twelve hundred stories fourteen hundred episodes so far. If you've got a question of your own if you'd like to update us about your side hustle. This is a community effort after all. Just come to school dot com slash questions. Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you'll come back tomorrow. I'll be sure you're subscribed. My name is christina about this is side. Hustles school From the onward project.
They escaped Chinas crackdown. Now, they wait.
"This post reports podcast is sponsored by the Association of American railroads. New Technology creates a smarter and Safer Freight Rail Network. That is ready to meet the needs of tomorrow visit Tejedor Dot. Org from the newsroom of the Washington Post Robert Samuels from the Washington washingtonpost. Hi this is this is post reports. I'm Martine Hours. It's Friday November twenty seconds today a weaker. Woman's journey from each Penney's interim camp to the suburbs of Virginia and the sound of the Nuremberg trials. Spoke so I covered China hideout for many years that was based in Beijing for the Post and base in Hong Kong before that and since two thousand nine. The situation for the workers has been getting progressively worse and worse and worse and over the last three years. It's gotten really bad. I'm only Rollin. Covers Foreign Affairs for the post. She's talking about the Muslim minority in China. They have been systematically targeted by the Chinese government and in effort to make them more more like the majority Han population roughly three years ago. China's building this network of you know quote Unquote Reeducation camps basically weekly mass in turning the Turkic Muslim population. And we've been reporting the story from within China from Kazakhstan but it's extremely rare to actually meet people who've gotten from the camps all the way to United States so a few months ago we're connected of mine put me in touch with his family and I was. I was really surprised that they're here. All so tell me about this family that you met and how they became victims of that campaign so this is a family that lives in the regional capital city called room chief local smoke then. The woman's name Zumrat and there has been named is Imron. And he's Pakistani He's a traitor. He does business between Pakistan and China and they met there many years ago and they have three kids and things really took a turn for the worse for them in March of two thousand eighteen. So I read it all started with a phone call from the police Komo also CONSI getting a call from the police. If you live in that area does not mean good things so they bring her into the police station. She says she was taken down to a basement room. It was cold. What balls Aqualung News? And what were they asking her about. Why were they targeting? Her the interrogator seem to be very focused on the fact that she had foreign connections. And you know she said my husband's Danny he's a traitor home about one of the best pucks thunder could. Of course there's inlaws or in my phone and of course we do business about this but this is part of a broader pattern of people there with any ties abroad to neighboring countries through business being targeted and viewed viewed with suspicion. And so after they started questioning her. What happened then? So she's there for twenty four hours as she remembers it. She's then transferred She said she was taken hooded shackled to what she later learns Sal and she remembers being put in describing a floor so thick with women that she couldn't lie down and she wakes up in the morning and confirms that she's in what is essentially a an off books prison detention engine center internment camp so her husband because he's as a for national had been pressing the consular officials to get her out so she's in their day sixty one day sixty two. She's led to a different front part of the facility and her husband there. He takes her home and what happened after that they go back to their life in the capital. Uh she reunited with her kids but she still doesn't really feel free and she's living with the knowledge that if she does anything that's Buta suspicious. Whatever that might be she could get that set-back sometime? After she was released. Local officials started coming to her about the fact that she had three children. So why were they concerned with the fact that she had three children. So China has strict controls on population and for many years if you are a member of certain minority groups instead of having thing one child under the one child policy you could have. Two and Zimmer had three children so they ended up coming to her and saying listen well. You've violated the policy and we're here to tell you. The government will be providing you with a complementary sterilization. What exactly she didn't want it to dreamed of having a child old another boy but she didn't feel like she could say now so she did it she did it on? National was the two very matter of fact describing unofficial came to my house and with some other women. I went to the hospital and I went into the room room. And they gave me a general ed aesthetic but when she came to describe what that meant for her and her her family and the future she wept war. We'll edit so at that point was that when She and her husband decided they can't be there anymore. So it's really hard for workers to get out of China right now. I've been covering this for many years. And I've still 'til interviewed very few people who have been in the camps and are now outside but this family was unique because her husband was Pakistani and also also unique because as relatively wealthy traders. They had a few years back obtained tourist visas to come to the United States. They wanted to take a family holiday. So the sterilization. They started campaigning with local officials. To let them out of the country. They said listen. My husband's father's -ill please let us go please. Compassionate will definitely come back. We promised we promised you promised back. And for whatever reason the local official agreed and so they left they board a flight in a remedy for Islamabad and they made their way through the airport and they couldn't believe it and they took off they get to Pakistan and suddenly there outside of China's censored Internet. They're watching youtube videos. And they're realizing the full extent of what was happening in China the more than a million people are in detention according to US and UN estimates. And they're realizing while we we really can't go back but they're also realizing if we don't go back there probably GonNa go after our family. So why didn't they. They end up just deciding to live in Pakistan so they start hearing stories about people who fled to Pakistan and are getting forcibly deported. They realize it's GonNa take a long time for them to get policies citizenship to naturalized there and they basically decide. We can't stick around you know we're going to get sent back to China so they knew that they could get to the United States unlike most people they don't let you get on a plane if you don't have a visa so they decide to roll the dice and they got on a flight and landed at Dulles airport and really worried at all about the fact that if the Chinese government knew that they had essentially lied about their promise to return time that it could have repercussions for other members of their family. They were terrified just after they overstayed the date of their return. Zumra got messages on her phone there from her brother and in a series of of desperate messages he says you know. Where are you from grandchildren? Agam Kanda Jeffords. Aren't you calling me back. You know so and so went to interrogate our father. It was it was devastating for them. She knew and she had her brother's voice on a voice. Message saying we're we're in trouble. They're coming for us. Would I follow your Ma. She also knew that she had three kids with her and that if she went back she would certainly be going back to detention if not prison and that there could be trouble for her husband and her kids as well so one was it that they I got here. And how long have you. You've been here now. They got here in April. So it's been a few months. They had their first American summer while they sort of got used to living in suburban Virginia and developed a plan. We're standing outside outside the mosque in the Virginia suburbs and just rain you can hear the crooked and their two daughters eleven and six chips hamburger high. Yeah she's selling hamburgers at her imaginary store. The community help them find a home to rent. They started settling in and they filed for asylum. And what are the chances at that asylum petition will be successful. So it's really hard to say. Various government agencies have condemned the camps State Department and Pentagon so many people have said you know what China's doing is a travesty at the same time the trump administration has generally tightened controls on refugees and asylum seekers. And so I can imagine that. Maybe the reason why they wanted to talk publicly about their experience and about the fact that they were able to escape from China is partially to make the case for why they should be able to stay in the US because things were so bad for them there will. The decision to speak out for them was excruciating as they started to settle in to life in the United States and asserted to meet with members of the Diaspora. Here people warn them. If you do this there will be consequences yet. They've still been pretty public about about their experiences for about a month. They said we don't want to do the store. We changed our mind. Were terrified and then over the summer they change their mind. Thank you thank you ambassador. Gingrich per case caught the attention of the State Department and she was actually mentioned in a speech by Secretary of State Mike Tale really. He mentioned her and her family. In that speech he gave a speech on religious freedom. One of them was a woman named Zumrat. Dr Root She was shackled interrogated and taken to an internment camp where she was forced to recite Chinese propaganda and beaten forgiving tailing fellow prisoner or food. All of this for the crime of being Muslim there was an immediate reaction from the Chinese side. There was an article in one of the Party. Controlled troll news outlets condemning. What POMPEO had said As part of that they had found video which they said was made by rats brother the little dogs of the Dow in which he condemned his sister's testimony and also condemned directly. Mike Pompeo for his speech American Opio up in writing. Her family believed the brother was coerced into this testimony. The Zumra feel like she has kind of a responsibility to to talk about the things that happened to her. Just because it is so rare for someone who has been to the places that she's been in things that she's seen for them to have gotten to the US in gotten to safety that's exactly how she feels. And that's why she decided to tell our story as she went back and forth over the summer about whether or not to go ahead with the story you know. She was weighing her responsibility to her family. And then this sense that she'd had when she was in detention of. Why isn't anyone doing doing anything about this? Why isn't anyone speaking out? And she said that's why she ultimately decided to tell her story. Emily raw covers foreign affairs for the post Uh this post reports. PODCAST is sponsored by the Association of American railroads. New Technology Technology creates a smarter and Safer Freight Rail Network. That is ready to meet the needs of tomorrow visit. AARP DOT ORG and now one more thing from reporter. Michael Rouen about recordings from the Nuremberg trials. Were Nazi officials. Were prosecuted after World War. Two you you have testified that Many of the execution order were by Miller is the recordings.

You're about to hear our our graphic you here in these audio recordings the actual words of witnesses and defendants you. Oh you hear crimes described you. Hear Hans Koppelin The Norwegian describing his torture at the hands of the custodio where he was beaten and head pins driven under his fingernails and was tortured brutally but I came back to life again by the smelling of the burnt burnt and then one day Gestapo agents Dinu little sorta lamp bugging me on my feet. And you hear an American lawyer read. Rudolph Haas's affidavit he was the commandant at Auschwitz. And you hear him. Describe how we executed mass murderer if people was great efficiency. I personally provide explication outlet until Aberdeen the body and now how he murdered people. In huge numbers two hundred thousand people murdered hundreds and hundreds hundreds of thousands of others who died of disease he describes going to Treblinka which was another concentration camp and seeing how they did their job and realizing that they were inefficient that he could do much better job by building bigger gas chambers and instead of using carbon monoxide ride to kill people you realized that he could use this poison Zyklon B which was much more effective three fifteen minutes to kill L. People in the Death Chamber depending upon by Matic Condition. We knew when the people were dead. Because they're screaming. Stop Doc we he then describes how long would wait before they took the bodies out how they would remove gold fillings. It's in teeth and jewelry. And at the end of his testimony. The American lawyer.

I am doing great how you doing. I'll do it very well. Do you have a quarantine scheduled the our way through the day. That's the only way that I'm surviving. I'm such a routine person in general so this has been like heaven and hell simultaneously though as long as I keep that routine. I'm all right like a lot of people. I've been listening to a fair amount of podcast students that I you are podcast. Called the RE. Watchable IS BILL Simmons. Where you were talking about Groundhog Day is one of your favorite newbies. Ucla you're living through that now. Yeah definitely I think which is that one of the greatest movies of all time one of my favorite movies and it was such a treat to talk about that. But it is like you're waking up with the fame alarm every single day going to the same parts of your house. The only sad part is that there consequences for my actions. Were you always? Have you always been a big bill? Murray and I mean I grew up on ghostbusters. Yeah he's just always been a staple seen him on Saturday night live. Obviously he's just. He's tree is a tree. Another tree is is mel on Jeremy. And you guys did this film together. It was supposed to premiere at South by southwest. Of course that was one of the many things was canceled Now it's GonNa Premiere Tell a little bit about movie. Yeah the movie is about a couple that is kind of reached a stagnant winning a relationship and are going out on you know a a night out there going on a night out and they are framed for murder like it's good though sometimes needs needs to be framed for murder to appreciate one another yet the spice things like you know worrying and I want to know what you're like when our lives on the line there is there's a horse in the film This is not a real horse. Throughout the course of the film there was fake horsing happening there was some fake core. Serie A for our safety for Kamau Safety You know he him. A trailer gets kicked by horse and I made sure when the real horse was there that I kept defense from from it. I'm like you hundred. Never feel comfortable around horses. I Don a not even have you written on. Horses seems relaxing even all not relaxing. No I'd like I'd horse thing but even that someone was holding my hand in guiding me but no I've you written I have hundred and every second of it. It's not I mean like I. I just don't like that. Some another brain is in charge of my speed exactly You're supposed to give your faith to this. It's an animal and yet even like there's no reasoning with can do whatever feels like so. It's it's horrifying a lot of attention for my money correctly. So has been paid to the transformation of Canal Who has for long a long time during the funniest people working and then he got casted a marvel project and now has the most Subaru body of time. I'm wondering if onset for this film which was the four that he shot his marble projects With Kumail very I imagine conscious Ziti. He was conscious. He just started the journey and to me. That's having because I'm a fad. Diet crash diet percents. I'm always doing something so to meet a guy who just as food conscious is. I do just like to try different things. Sure Partners Accountability partner but He really just took it to another level. And I'm extremely gentle San. I also congratulate you. You've got another season insecure and you posted a photo. You are writing in Zumra go. It's it's you know watching fifteen squares on the screen from being in a room where you're used to cracking jokes and things like that so hard to to get that chemistry right but we're we're managing and maintaining also. It's not a place of laziness but I think sometimes you're writing collectively. There is a lot of time that is sort of wasted but in a way that it's the juices flowing I do not feel that juices slow typically well through the zoo boxes now. It's so much more efficient in the worst way is like these hours and we just get down to business. I think they're rare lapses. The black laugh but we are getting way more done so. Hbo Is Getting Bang For Their Buck but less enjoyable. I WanNa talk about a season for new you mess around with a narrative structure and that was really cool. That there is a you've played around with time. A great deal of first. Half of season was building forward. Almost with a monstrum Each episode what made you want to approach the season that way where you had you become bored of the way you were doing before or is it just superior as an idea. Yeah a little bit of both. It's always fun to just like. Change up your storytelling. And we knew going in that. We wanted to start with this very controversial salacious statement from The character I play about not messing with her best friend anymore and so we wanted to show the bills to that. Because we knew that we were we were building a communication breakdown in a French. And sometimes it's just a little things those little moments bad lead to the deterioration in friendship in that. That really interested us when you come up with an idea like that is the writing staff from the beginning. That's such a good question they are. They are cautiously optimistic. Just like oh. This might be great. I'm so sorry I go with this guy. I love it. Is it a that is an actual doorbell? You've okay you all but now going to. I have good. News is way more embarrassing. It was. I mean it was like your theme song or something. This is way at least we believe that it came with the House Man. I'm fully after the. I forgot the question. That's why I do it. Ask You talked about how you molly. How falling out the show you know that is sorta the strongest branch of the show and you must get back in real time from What is a very fast fan base? How people reacted to that. People have been very very one-sided in terms of who they're blaming. I've seen a lot of like arguments online and you know we've been off the show we've been off the air for like a year and a half and it has been a kind of ghost in a way so. I forgot how how much people interact with shows. So it's actually a great in exciting thing that they're they've latched onto these characters in these sides but also fully and saying well it must be great care that much about show. It must be wonderful that housing back in your ear. Yeah I'm I'm grateful. I will say that as a lot of opportunity and it is great to have people saw invested in this story that we're telling that's awesome. Hey congrats on having another season? Coming congrats on film.

388: What 2020 Taught us About Communication
"Bullshit it's the no bullshit marketing show. I'm dave masto vich. Ceo and founder of mass solutions. The world's only no bullshit marketing firm or about to end the year. Two thousand twenty and during two thousand twenty. The most important tool for all of us was communication when you have a worldwide tragic event that's longstanding like the pandemic. It really comes down to how well we communicate how often we communicate what we communicate when and where we communicate and two thousand twenty taught us a lot about our communication the companies that were able to quickly communicate to all their constituencies about how they were adapting and innovating to the pandemic those were the companies that were able to quickly turn things around and too quickly even grow and turn this into an opportunity. They were able to quickly communicate in multiple channels to multiple audiences leaders who were able to communicate with employees peers. And there other stakeholders are the ones who were able to motivate educate and inspire their teams to survive and then thrive throughout two thousand twenty. What we learned about communication was exciting to me as a person who has made a living and been passionate about and been a leader in communication throughout my entire life. Entire working caribbean even prior to my working career always was a student of communication a student of storytelling a student of marketing to sit back and watch how companies and leaders have adjusted and enhance their communication during two thousand and twenty was just spectacular for me. It was like this case study was this extra. Mba in communication. And here's some things that i learned. People wanted to know that you cared. They wanted to know that you were listening. So leaders at took the time to show that to show that they did care and how they were care with specific actions and they were able to listen adjusted to this thing called that some of us used you know maybe for five ten percent of our communication maybe fifteen percent and others didn't relieve no zuma's or a heck of a lot of people that had never used zoom or something like that so leaders and companies quickly said zoom skype webex. Whatever the technology was there were going to leverage that and change that and use that. And we're going to be frequent with your messaging. You're gonna listen and you're gonna craft and tell stories what we've learned. I hope is that there are all kinds of ways to take what we learned and apply it when we are able to be face to face. So let's say fifty to seventy percent of our communication was face to face prior to the pandemic. Let's say that one to ten percent was on zoom calls and ten to twenty or thirty percent was in email and three to five percent on phone calls. Whatever it doesn't matter exactly what the number was the key is this. We learned that face to face is still incredible. It's the most powerful and valuable. Mr both healthy most healthy we. We need some kind of human interaction but we also learned that. We don't need as much as we thought so. Three six eight months from now when we're able to be more together and do more face to face communication and interaction. My hope is that we realized that we don't have to require everybody to work from the same place or even eighty percent to work from the same place on a daily basis we were shifting we revolving the last twenty years to see more and more people having some hybrids working from home time spending some time working from home having people that weren't necessarily in their market that were still a part of the team. Mass solutions has been doing that for fifteen years. I am when we first started doing people. Scratch their heads. And so what do you mean you. Don't everybody in the office. what do you mean. And then over the last ten years even prior to the pandemic so more and more people doing that but then you saw the stodgy conservative companies realizing now that they too have to allow some sort of hybrid level working because getting up and commuting every day to drive to a place where you're sitting in your cuban communicating via email and slack and whatever your version of slack is and possibly zoom eighty percent of the time that you were in. That place isn't efficient. It just isn't so if we're saying everybody drive in five days a week to spend sixty to eighty percent of your time not really interacting face to face anyway so the hybrid way can work and i think that the more we all embrace that and say that when we get back to the able to see people face to face that we can do the hybrid for any size company not just a nimble agile company like mass solutions but also the big multi billion dollar companies can be much more comfortable with it than they were they might say they were comfortable with the reality is they weren't and then they had to be another realized that it's an opportunity. A second thing is the business of sales and business development has traditionally been done lately face to face as much as you can and what we learned here is if we can all respect one another more including me. I'm so to quite a bit. And i'm also trying to sell to people to believe in the no bullshit marketing way. We all have to respect each other and be more open to doing zoom coast or some sort of zoom whether zumra competitor because the old way of email email phone call email direct mail. email email. Phone contract seem to you. Got to face to face. Appointment is incredibly inefficient. And the phone call. Itself isn't as strong as a zoom call so if we can be a little more respectful and little more direct and tell people. I don't think a candidate for free. I don't think i'm in your ideal customer profile. I don't think i can value your services right. Now get that out of the way. You're now a no but if there were even remotely a maybe instead of trying to take all the time to get the schedules to align the planets align do the quick zoom call and be able to see someone and get more of a fuel from them so the zoom call as the introductory call is far stronger than a phone call and it's far less expensive than a face to face so if we can just evolve and all of us has both buyers sellers can try to leverage that it will improve our communication because the zoom co should be more effective than a phone call and it will be definitely more cost effective than a face to face call and we can continue to do this evolution of the cells aspect to more wa- to more efficiency less waste of the time with six hundred emails and phone calls voicemails. And whatever else direct mail to try to get a face to face when you can just get people to use actual zoom calls to replace some of the face to face and the entire aspect of people doing what they do well wherever they can do. It has been something. I believed in for over twenty years my entire adult life i believe in. I had to fight the old way of doing things in that. It doesn't matter so much where you're doing things. It's just do get the job done. Are you communicating well and if yes then you can work from anywhere but what. I will tell everybody. We'll have to communicate better even on our team. We talk a lot about this because we have some people working for somebody different places. It is on the person working from that place. That isn't in with the group as often you do have more of the responsibility. I know employees aren't going to like to hear that but you do you do now. You can not accept that and disagree and that's fine. The reality is that you have a responsibility to make sure that you're figuring out how to maximize the time of those as well as your own time. The of those who. You are no longer face to face with her. You're in another market from this. Means you taking the time to communicate better whether that's using videos whether it's using email when it's using voicemail whether it's actually using a zoom call whether it's scheduling the face to face whether it's finding out when that person is available because this is what happens a lot people will just potter along and go. I was available that afternoon but nobody else was. And so we didn't talk and i'm gonna talk the next time then. We didn't talk the next all of a sudden. You've gone a bunch of days or weeks without having a face to face on screen conversation to get caught up or just pick up the phone. The phone is still extremely valuable to just pick up the phone and talk through a problem. So that's on both sides not fair to just always say it's on the company that's not fair. You have to say that this is on the company. It's on the leader in its on the team member and each person has to do it and team members that are working remotely. You have to take responsibility for that. You have to say how can i make sure i communicated better and more frequently with my peers. The team leader and clients. You have to take that responsibility. That's part of being in it together. You heard that phrase so much this year now. That phrase continues that role in this together. Well that's what it means to all be together. It's not just to say well. I was available. Nobody called me. I was available now cancelled so we just didn't talk that week. Yeah they did cancel. But what else could you have done to do a reschedule. So that's the stuff. That gets me. Juiced because i think if we can all open up and try to adapt leaders peers team members clients. Everybody just try to adapt to this. We can end this crazy difficult. Two thousand and twenty and we can go into this exciting two thousand twenty one and take this hybrid of what we learned can work. And we've closed that gap and reduced the fears of so many people who thought that you couldn't do predominantly zoom calls that you couldn't do remote work for every single team member at least a portion of their week and we had people who thought i needed to in the office and i don't know that i liked this technology. I don't like not having the interaction. let's get the hybrid in two thousand and twenty one. Let's try to maximize both. Let's keep the efficiencies of not driving through the commute everyday to sit in a cube and barely talk to someone but we then have to make sure that we communicate is strongly as we can on zoom and other ways. But let's do have face to face because you have to have that face to face at some point to build that strong relationship to to energize each other and to have the true team. And that's what we really need to do. In two thousand and twenty one. Two thousand twenty again was the year of the communication tool and the power of storytelling. We've all been talking about the power of storytelling a mass solutions for probably about eight to ten years using that terminology which has become really popular in the last two or three and this year was the one where everybody said. Wow i've got to communicate better stronger more often. I've got to use anecdotes analogies to make my points. I have used multiple channels any use zoom. I need these you use phone calls. I need to leave voicemails and descend better emails. I need to use tax. I need to make stronger presentation decks. I need to listen more. So communication which is both verbalizing and video and texting and audio. but it's also listening. That's a big part of communication and the companies that leverage the power of storytelling that listened to employees to stakeholders to clients to each other. that then communicated stronger. That's who made it in two thousand twenty and took two thousand twenty and turn it into a positive so let's leverage all that stuff. Let's combine the best of both worlds as we move into two thousand twenty one and we begin to get back to where face to face come june or july or august or whenever when face to face is much more prevalent. Let's keep a hybrid and take advantage of all of these different things that we learned in two thousand twenty. I want to thank all of the no.
