COVID-19 relief bill negotiations fall apart as lawmakers remain divided

"Congressional leaders, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi met with the trump administration today for what we think was an eleventh round of face-to-face negotiations on another covid relief package for Americans who are out of work or otherwise up against it in the seventh full blown month of this pandemic Democrats offered to knock about a trillion dollars off of their relief bill, which should otherwise been pegged at three point four, trillion, the White House apparently said no to that offer. Many. The deadlines to replenish or extend the relief programs that Congress has passed in the past. Those have already come and gone deadline to continue paying the extra six hundred bucks and unemployment benefits that tens of millions of Americans have been relying on since they've been out of work that deadline came and went July thirty first. The deadline to extend the ban on people across the country that passed on July twenty fourth now as many as twelve million people or risk of losing their homes if they don't get help. Technically the paycheck protection program the Federal Loan Program to try to keep small businesses afloat. Technically, that program is still alive that program doesn't expire until tomorrow, but it does matter tomorrow. With all these federal leaf relief programs either collapsing on the verge of collapsing the trump administration is saying no to the Democrats compromise offer they've been making vague noises about the president trying to do some of these things by executive order the president talked about that tonight at his golf club in Bedminster but then quickly pivoted to spending the next half an hour remarks basically holding a very small campaign rally. Left unsaid at all was how he intends to muster the authority to try to do any of this single handedly since it's congress, not the president. That holds the power of the purse tick tock though in terms of how much Americans need relief right now, there's no end to this pandemic insight. The reason these things are expiring is because when they initially past people thought this would be over by now. It's nowhere near over Americans are suffering just as much as they were when these things were passed in the first place. How's this going to resolve? Joining us now is the Great James Clyburn South Carolina Congressman Chair of the House Select Committee Oversees Virus Relief Funds Congressman Clyburn. It's really nice to see you here. Tonight it's been too long since you've been here on the show I really appreciate you making time to be here. Thank you very much. Can you just give us your overview perspective on what you think is going to happen whether you think that these programs that so many Americans have been counting on will get extended what kind of lapse that will be looking at between those programs initially expiring and them getting re upped when ultimately some deal hopefully, it's worked out. I think we. WORKED OUT WE'LL be the tremendous amid of the week. Weekend. We will have. Some politicians tomorrow I think we're getting close to something happening. That will be beneficial to everybody. When the president talks about doing some of these things by executive order, I feel like I'm going back to my school house rock it's just I'm just a bill kind of basics about how the different branches of government work I mean the one thing the president doesn't have is the power of the purse when he says that he can do some of these things just by signing. An executive order when we're talking about, you know sending money to people weren't talking about an unemployment benefits boost when we're talking about changes around taxes that he's talking about, it doesn't seem to me that he has the power to do any of that as as president. But yet, the White House seems to think that that's a that's another way to get at the relief that's needed. The purchasing is saying that there is no congress, the acid deal with no people the he has to listen to He says these things up think as always throwing something up on the wall to see if it was. I think he knows better than this. The general owners that he issues have gone to court time and time again and they've been thrown back into his face as appointed time. I think he's get the message from the Courts as well. But keep working and we'll come to some agreement I. Wish that Mr McConnell or in the room so that we can get the legislative bodies together but he seems to have. Turned over to the White House, but we'll get something. You you sound confidence and that. Is booming to me because I feel like you're pretty clear eyed observer about what is capable what what Capitol Hill is capable of doing just ask what you would say to Americans right now who are really scared about not just the health aspects of this but the economic aspects of this I mean so many people that I know just in my personal life with their small business owners or whether they are employees of public or private entities. people are worried about whether or not the the economic. Blow that's been dealt to individual families into our country. Right now is something that we're going to recover from in the long run. How do you? How do you see that and? How do you think the government has done in terms of trying to fix some of these these wounds? People are worried and. Something, I'm worried. He got a really a pandemic, but then a pandemic here. When you really look at it they got a big healthcare crisis. They got an economic crisis, and as we focused on trying to do something about the economic crisis, the fact of the matter which are not yet it saw without solving this healthcare crisis. So it's a double whammy here. We have to try to operate knowing full well that you cannot operate within the silo here

"You know this? This lack of go ahead. I'm sorry. I know that, but but let me jump in here. This is the reason why, you know if you are hurt in an accident, God forbid or or something happens. It pays to find a good lawyer. Higher J B. He will do the investigation for you. He'll get on the case early. They'll figure out what's going on. He'll be able to tell you your rights and explain to you what's gonna happen and when it's gonna happen. You want to go with someone who's top flight like babies firm? Uh, because you're going to get a better result. You know, it's just a fact. Not now, guys. That's that's that's transitional ittle bit from just DRAM shop to potential slip and falls fights. Ah, number of things that happened in a nightclub all alcohol related. I know this is in both of your wheelhouse is And so the DRAM shop has to do with the actual car. And so Zach a hall related these other situations. You know, they happen in a bar and there alcohol related. You've represented me Pat in a number of them. And as a bar owner. I would. I would try to do my best my literal best to protect myself. I even at one point said that my attorney when we were going to do with that position Cannot, you know? Can I put together a waiver that somebody waves you know that there's alcohol being served? Here? We clear we have, you know, taking every every possible safety precaution. We've trained everybody. But if somebody gets in a fight, or if they slip and fall I remember I was talking T Drew Malik. One time I called them and I got a lawsuit and it had my name on it like they all did. Even though I was never Previa too. You know whatever happened and he said to me what happened And I said, Well, I hit the girl with a bottle and he said, What were you talking about? I said, Oh, no, I'm being hypothetical here. I must have hit her with the bottom because my name's at the top of the lawsuit, right? I of course, did the girl with the bottle, But my point is, we didn't even have an incident report. We couldn't even prove That it happened or it didn't happen. How did how does a bar avoid situations and Kenneth can putting together a waiver help? Particularly you're doing the right things that unless you're a private social club, you're not. You're not getting a waiver. Ahh and even a private social club. We difficulty get a legally binding waiver. For your own negligence. You what is going on that I I just think it's bad. I think I'm a plaintiff's lawyer. So don't do whatever you want with a waiver, but it's bad for business. And it's how do you administer that? Yeah, I think it would be a plus. I'd ripped out apart. I'd say well, the minute the person's drunk or if they signed a drunk. I don't know The waiver thing I think goes too far. There's a balance here. I have a question over Joe and pat. But that You know any time I do a DRAM shop case, I'm thinking Why can't you put like one guy at the door whose sole responsibility is check people on the way out. Is that feasible? Pat isn't advisable, Joe as a business owner, Is it something you could have done? Where that guy is the designated. I'm going to check you out for visible signs of intoxication and weld the door way. So we had security at every door. Mostly it was for people on the way in. Mom and you know, we also of course, they have their eyes open in every particular scenario. So out of times, people can't do because they can't afford it. We had a lot of doors. And so we You know, way had the ability and resource is to be able to do that Other other people, you know, and again, J B that often doesn't happen until something Like Pat was reiterating one of it awhile ago, and something happens at that door until you get bitten. But by something like that, and and and and then And and you talk about video impact. You talked about it. I mean, a lot of times and we had video but it was hard to see. I remember one time we had video. We gave it to the police. There was an incident. I forget the incident. And they called me up the next day. Tell me they were going to put it on crime fighters, right? And it wasn't a big and I'm thinking to myself, my guys, You know you're going. You're going toe, you know? You really give me problems here? You know, I'm gonna lose my potential business. I'm doing you a favor, and now you're going to put it on, you know, TV, and so I often felt like that Didn't that didn't help much because we rarely could see anything. The video, although it's necessary, and we used it for security for our bartenders to make sure that they, you know. We're watching a piece and cues. But there was a lot of situations where where you just you gotta learn by experience. But, pat well, Joe and Joe, you're running the business. I mean, frankly, it is. Look Not if you're going to start checking patients when they leave. You know, Does every club do that? We're going to go in that of the four seasons downtown. Are we going to do in that park on Rittenhouse Square is very. It's a very interesting point. Very interesting. I mean, you know they're still in business. They still have to have the customers leave happy, so those customers come back. And you know thus far, this statute hasn't been extended stature. Doesn't say a bar has to make sure no one leaves intoxicated. It just says no one should be served while intoxicated. Right, correct and different. There's a different distinction that that is a good distinction, and it goes back to a point You made earlier. Um but, you know, I think there's a lot of wiggle room in that serve and that causes could cause you some problems. In serving a visibly intoxicated person. There's a lot of wiggle room for me. There are some problems. No guys. I mean, she's a question. Having said that parties in all goatee and I'll go to you. J B. These type of bar. I mean, I have my own opinion on him. I've seen them happen. You know, I can't remember when we ever went to court. I have to think about it. But Are most of the bar oriented DRAM shop, and I'm assuming the DRAM shop. You know if it's a really serious situation, somebody gets killed. Somebody kills other people may go to court. Depending upon the magnitude, But I've seen some pretty serious situations on day and they were either arbitration panels of settlements. Are there other a decent amount of jury trials? Are they that they set a lot? Or the arbitration panel. Joanna. First of all the level of cases I'm doing or not arbitration panels, which is a certain monetary limits. Um, I'm doing mostly big cases, catastrophic cases. And mostly, that's why That's firm is on the other side because there's substantial cases I've never had to actually go to the mat to a jury on a DRAM shop case. Typically on you know, my firm's skill set is creating risks. That's what we do. I mean, the risk creation business so that pat you is the business owner and your.

It's a little Corny but Camille tells me that it works also spoke to mark Hohmann who is a small business owner he's got a camera store in L.

I talked to a guy who is a classic salesman he works for Schneider Electric going from town to town. Selling his electrical outlets to hotels, and now can't do that. He told me what he really misses the handshake walking side by side the opportunity to finish the meeting grab lunch afterwards that's what he misses. But for Tyler Hake what he can do is have a lot more meetings because he's not traveling. So he can see more people in it's working out.

"I appreciate that, Pat. Thank youand. I have ample respect. Two for my friend and formidable opponent, Pat. We actually don't have a pact between the two of us, so we don't actually go against each other. If we have a case it pats on the other side of Wait, flap about partners or who's handling the case? Just a little deal. We have being such good friends. At any rate. What I do is I represent people will get hurt. Who gets catastrophically injured on DH? I'm in a much smaller firm than Pat. I have my own farm with my partners. Joe Stamp pony. Kevin O'Brien were trial lawyers, which means that we have the skill set and the experience to know how to try a complicated catastrophic Injury case, and we bring a personal touch to it. That's always been important in our office is that we handle personal injury personally so that we know that your family that you your loved one's going through tragedy and trauma when a personal catastrophic injury happened to somebody, and we handle it that way. Were available, and ah, we take on the big boys. That's what we do. We have funds to handle these big cases. We know what to do and how to do it. And in a DRAM shop, for example. If somebody is a bar, and they got served beyond being visibly intoxicated and get into a car accident on the way home and maim or kill somebody We will sue the bar and say that you should have known this person really intoxicated. And you didn't. You didn't follow protocol procedure. And when we when we let the bar know we're coming, they call somebody like Pat and ah You know, And then we know we've got a real battle on our hands. But The nice thing about working with professional like hot even though I don't work personally against him, But I know his work and his firm and other attorneys from his firm that I've worked against is it's always Good. Intellectual battle. It's a good fight, but it's gentlemanly its civil It's the way it should be, and we move the ball and try and do what's best for both of our respective clients. So having said that when a DRAM shop case happens, and we're going to get onto the different types of it, because I've I've seen them all. And, you know way worked incredibly hard on our standards and all that. But what's the What's I remember getting the calls from Drew Malik or not, you don't want on on a regular We got one and sometimes we knew what was coming. Sometimes we didn't We had a high volume facility and you know we were heavily secured, heavily trained all those things. But when you do in volume, something sometimes things happen. Sometimes things happen. You don't even see comment. And so that this show, Ladies and gentlemen is going to be in a lot of ways about the bar business about the nightclub business centers equi a lot of really talented individuals carrying owners. Individuals that are trained to take this business incredibly serious, But when you're dealing with alcohol, you know it's a very serious situation and you need to cover all bases. Having said that we're going to go to break in a couple minutes, but I'll go to my attorney. Pat Lam and said, What's the first thing? Ah bar owner, a restaurant owner, a night club owner and all those by the way that air in harm's way right now, with Cove, it And our thoughts and prayers go out to because it's been such a difficult time. I'll stand up for everyone that I know that our outstanding owner so and any employees A lot of them Goto our former employees as well. But having said that when somebody gets in a situation where a possible case happens, what's the first thing of a bar owner? Or an establishment owner should do in regards to evidence in regards to, you know, ah, procedures when they find themselves in that situation. Right. So the first thing I recommend on this is not self serving. To a bar owner. Any restaurant that gets wind that they're going to have a DRAM shop claim whether they hear about an accident where patrons in an accident or somehow otherwise get noticed. He's to immediately contact the lawyer and the reason why I say that is not self serving. It's not because of the lawyers because Their conversations with the lawyer and their employees. Conversations with lawyer are privileged. Whatever the employees say to the lawyer, whatever the owner, stated lawyers privileged and can't be discovered later. Honor can be brought out later on. One of the mistake. I see many part owners, D'oh. He's immediately after an accident. They have their people sit down and write out what happened what they remember. Very often. Those people don't have great memories. They may be guessing in the statements that may be saying things that are inaccurate, and they don't realize the significance of what they're saying or writing down. And how that could be used against them later on. It's tremendously important. Get an attorney involved and then start gathering your evidence. Start doing employee interviews. Start sorting out what happened and where your defenses are. If you are sued, and typically, what we would do is we would Obviously, you know, we were pretty trained. We would have our managers. We sit down. We have our own incident reports or we understood it that way. But we would also contact our insurance company who would immediately I think I mean, my brother used to handle that stuff, but he would who would contact You know the attorneys and and we would actually probably go through. You know what happened when we knew it. On the other hand, J B if somebody finds himself on the other hand, if they know if they were involved in a specific Type of DRAM shop case. What's the first thing one of the first steps they should do in regards to evidence and in those things if they find themselves in that situation Well, you know, I'm going to be more self promoting the Patties modest and he's and he's wrong. I just want to echo one thing. First of all, if you're a business owner, a bar like our club owner like Joe was and you get a new A DRAM shop situation you get noticed from an attorney like me. You got a problem? You better call pack..

New York Fed: Black-owned business hard hit by pandemic

"Owned businesses are the least and black owned businesses, the most affected by the Corona virus pandemic. So, says a new report from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The overall number of active business owners fell by 22% from February to April, the largest decline ever. But for black owned businesses. It was almost twice as bad. 41% folded for Latino ex owned. It was 32% Asian 26% but only 17% of white business owners went belly up. The main reason cited in the study. Black owned firms are more likely to be located in Koven, 19 hot spots, the Paycheck protection program reached 20% or less of eligible firms in states and counties with the highest densities of black owned firms. And black owned businesses had smaller financial cushions and weaker banking relationships before the pandemic even hit

Should You Outsource Your Paid Ad Marketing?

"Many. Small Business Owners after a few months of being in business already to investing in paid advertising, you're a new company new business a new brand, and you want to get your name out there. You want to start bringing in new customers and long-term marketing like content marketing Seo may take some time to start seeing some traffic. So many people are left with the question. Hey, should I start learning how to run my own facebook? ADS or instagram ads or Google search and cut out the middle man or woman and go ahead and start spending money on. It's a lot of people say, Hey, I'm spending money on the ads themselves I can put my whole budget into the ads themselves. Instead of you know having to pay somebody do it and a lot of cases it's not super inexpensive to hire somebody to run your paid ads many firms will take a percentage. Of your spend to save, for example, you spend two thousand dollars on ads this month, the want to charge you twenty to thirty percent of your spend. So we're talking about two to three hundred dollars may seeming significant the start. But as you start spending, you know five, ten, twenty, thousand dollars on as is not uncommon. It gets a little pricey. So I wanNA share with you a little bit about the experiences I've had in our. Businesses. is my own ads I've hire people do ads for us. I've kind of done something in between as well. I I want to say that when I started to run my own ads, I had to actually take a full course on how to run facebook ads I started with facebook This is even before instagram was out, I pay five hundred dollars for the course it took me about three weeks to finish the course. Even then it took me maybe about a good solid two months to start running high converting ads in the beginning you spend a little bit of money because you know what you're doing. You're still kind of. You're trying to find the audience all that kind of stuff you're a Newbie, but once I started to get it it was starting to convert and I was You know making good return on investment for the ants. The problem was is that in order for me to optimize dads to improve them to continue to come up new copy in new ads constantly, it was taking a lot of my time. I would say it would take about three to five hours a week. So from there I moved on to hiring somebody to take care of my advertising. This particular firm was taking a flat fee of two thousand dollars. Now, this was back in two thousand fifteen. So I would imagine prices being much higher now I actually no, because I've kind of shop Toronto a little bit and the going rate for. A flat fee is around three thousand and those are really rare by the way getting a flat fee contractor a flat fee agency to run your ads for flat feet and not kind of run based on your spent most agencies will charge you like I said a percentage of your spent twenty thirty percent of how much you spend on ads. I know that kind of sounds weird. Why would the spend? Have, anything to do with it because it's not like they're running more ads, they're just spending more on each of those ads, but that's just how it works in that market

Black Entrepreneurs Urged to Seize the Moment Despite Difficulties

"Business becomes part of the conversation, and it becomes part of the community. You write about how These black own franchises of McDonald's shape the community around them. They goes beyond providing jobs. They play a leading cultural roll. Talk a little bit about that. Right, so African American franchise owners take on the role that black business owners have historically taken on, and that means that they're providing other resource is in communities because of the color line in government services and opportunities. So they're underwriting youth programs in schools there, making sure that first jobs are actually being created. In the communities. They're sponsoring things like the early Martin Luther King Jr holiday, So you start to see their influence not just in the business sector, but for historically black colleges and universities for the creation of the all American basketball team. And so these black franchise owners become incredibly visible and incredibly popular in these communities, because, as I say in my book, these communities are cut off from federal resource is and other types of opportunities in order to have their needs met. So, Dr Chaplin. How far does it extend beyond McDonald's? Because we do know that today in 2020 the gap in wealth between black Americans and white Americans. His massive. Why didn't this catch on Mohr beyond McDonald's? Well, we think that the reality is that you can't solve robust and complex and deep social problems simply by having business leave the way that we have. Public fear we have public policy with public resource is like taxes in order to do that. But what it does reveal is that this moment that McDonalds is in right now, saying that they stand for black lives donating to the end of the CP. It's not knew we have a 50 year plus history of McDonald's inserting itself into the civil rights struggle. So that they can appear that there on the right side of history. But in this early period when MacDonald was extending the opportunity for Franchising, people did not have the full understanding of the consequences of fast food on the American diet. As well as the concerns about wages in the industry today supporting black live visa be McDonald's has more to do with the quality of work. And benefits and providing for its people than some of these other solutions from the past.

Create Your Business Space Doing the Opposite - MicroFamous Matt Johnson - burst 13

"But. You talk about several things when it comes to shrinking a battlefield. First of all, it's creating niche. If we've talked about at at at length already and then creating that person combining, we've talked a little bit about we can exhibit combined existing niches that can make them more focused and define niche. You also talk about reframing a reposition, but the one element that I really loved that you do is opposition. When it comes to shrinking the battlefield. So. Talk to us about. Using opposition as a way to shrink our battle because I found this fascinating. Yeah and I love this example. I'm really pumped that you asked about that one because there's a bunch of a bunch of ways to create a niche or combining reframing all this stuff, and they're all there on the book, and that's awesome. But the one that's one of my favorites to talk about is doing the opposite, right. So how do you shrink the battlefield? If you'RE GONNA choose to focus on a certain group of people or a specialized segment of your market or something like that? Like how do you? How do you choose the right one? Well there's a great example from Jackie Chan Right Jackie. Chan. Is this martial arts you know really really famous and martial arts, but he is very different from everybody else like if you grew up a Bruce Lee fan like he did. Bruce Lee was the legend of the icon like he will never be surpassed. And how do you grow up as young martial artists? In China, how do you grow up Bruce Lee Shadow and expect to make anything of yourself in that community and in that that line of work? So Jackie Chan looked at that problem and instead of getting discouraged, he looked at it gwent. How can I do the opposite of what Bruce Lee does. Okay. Well, Bruce. Lee. Is Like A mazing. Super Fast, invincible. Well, what if I did the opposite and I was more vulnerable immuno even and showed myself getting her like did my own stunts and like showed showed the real thing happening Bruce Lee's films are pretty straightforward. Right What if we did something comedic? What if we did something that was almost slapstick? So he starts asking themselves these kind of questions. Just how can I do the opposite of the person who is the dominant name or the dominant brand in my space ends up coming up with his own blend in crates, his own genre. Basically of this kind of con- comedic martial arts. I don't even know what you'd necessarily call it But he invents his own fighting style that goes along with that expands into movies, ends up being like one of the highest paid actors of all time. One of the biggest stars in the world. And it all started by doing the opposite. And we can do the same thing right whether you are the florist whether you are a brick and mortar. Business owner whether your real estate agent whether you're coach consultant, which is the world that Iran and more taking what you know think about you know again, contrasting with Gary v like if you're in that space and you WANNA teach people how to market their business. Good luck. Just going on being another Gary v because you end up just being overshadowed by him and delivering the same message to the same people. got. Gary. V. So what are they? What are they need you for? But if you go out and you do the opposite, it gives you a chance to cut through with a message that actually speaks really really deeply to a smaller group of people and plus fun like figuring out how do the opposite you end up coming up with some really fun and interesting combinations. He may end up creating a niche that you dominate for the next thirty years. It's really

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire

"Unless Congress takes action, millions of Americans are likely to be evicted from their homes. Berry soon, and this problem is more than just a crisis. This is a crisis that the American people are dealing with, but there's also a crisis when it comes to Congress and how utterly? Our lawmakers are when it comes to providing the economic relief that Americans desperately need so there have been numerous stories published about the number of Americans who are likely to be addicted, but these numbers keep ballooning so for instance last week, the Federal Moratorium on Evictions and also on federally backed mortgages expired, and so there are some states that have implemented their own addiction. Moratoriums but you have to keep in mind. Mind that some states have not done so and we still have tens of millions of Americans who are jobless who lost their healthcare coverage as a result of being laid off in the middle of this pandemic, and then you also have Republicans who refuse to extend the unemployment benefits that were provided under the cares act. That was the additional six hundred dollars a week. That Americans would receive if they filed for unemployment. Unfortunately it seems like there are some members of democratic leadership who were going along with the lies and deceptions that are being message to the American people. So before we get to that I want to share some statistics with you. The Urban Institute estimated. That provisions covered nearly thirty percent of the country's rental units and I'm talking about the Be Moratorium on evictions by one estimate. Some forty million. Americans, could be. During the public health crisis, and of course, this is the most unsurprising part about all of this minority. Groups are the most. Vulnerable when it comes to fiction, so people of Color, according to CNBC are especially vulnerable, while most while almost half of white tenants say they're highly confident. They can continue to pay their rent. Just twenty six percent about african-american tenants could say the same around half. Hispanic tenants said they have little to no confidence. They'll be able to stay in their homes. And if you look at data, state-by-state to see how states are impacted by this. You Look at Louisiana, for instance, fifty percent of ten say that they can no longer afford their rent. A fifty one percent who say that they can't afford their rent in Florida fifty eight percent, in Tennessee fifty nine percent in West Virginia and again Benjamin love for you to jump in the frustration. Here is the utter lack of leadership, not just in in the federal government with the trump administration, but also with Congress right what we're seeing here is just it's. It's shocking, but it's not surprising race. It's almost like the natural combination of how are leadership has been leading the direction. They've been going. They are really pushing the people as far as they possibly can I. Think you are Frankin Clippers stain on. Twitter, said that they're trying to find the very least that they could possibly do without causing a riot, but you know when these numbers start hitting the fan right when people actually are put out of their homes with nowhere to go, and then if they if they're lucky enough to get in a homeless shelter night, we do not have the capacity to house. All of these people in the homeless shelters across this country, but even in that scenario they would then be exposing their families to covid nineteen. This is not something that's but the fact that they're playing chicken and taking it. All the way to the wire is is disgusting. Absolutely, so you have the moratorium on fictions on one hand, and then you also have the issue of the unemployment benefits which are set to expire on the last day of July, and so of course, when you hear the rhetoric coming from the Senate Gop, and also from the White, house, there's this live that keeps getting repeated over and over again about how well these unemployment benefits are just too high, and as a result are refusing to go back to work. In fact, one of the Republican senators. Who was her pet? This nonsense was Ted Cruz over the weekend. Let's take a listen to what he had to say. And then I wanNA. Compare what he said to democratic. Leadership Listen. In terms of the unemployment benefits do you object to providing any kind or any amount of federal boosts unemployment at this point, because not everyone is choosing to be out of work. The policy that Nancy Pelosi Democrats are pushing adds an additional six hundred dollars a week of federal money to unemployment. We have unemployment system system. Down, to seventy percent. Problem is for sixty eight percent of people receiving it right now. They are being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job and I'll tell you. I've spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas. We're trying to reopen and they're calling. Their waiters and waitresses are other busboys, and they won't come back, and of course they won't come back is the federal government is paying in some instances twice as much money to stay home, but APP may, and to a lesser amount. At look at what we ought to focus on instead of just shoveling trillions out the door, we ought to be passing a recovery bill. What's a recovery bill or coverage? Bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the tax which would give a pay raise to everyone in America. WHO's working? That actually gets people back to work.

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

Seattle protests remain peaceful after 47 arrested in Saturday 'riot'

"K G W News reported. Seattle protests remain peaceful for 47 arrested in Saturday riot I'm not getting this natural headline. Kgw dot com. Seattle protests remain peaceful after 47 arrested in Saturday riot I feel like like there's contradictions in that particular headline. Over in Seattle, Things have gotten pretty wild. I burned a Starbucks sounds exciting. A video of the Starbucks, which is completely trashed. Set it on fire their apartments above the Starbucks, by the way, which is always great. So they're they're threatening people who lived above Also Petey announced that they had been arresting people who are firing mortars. I literally said the people are firing mortars of them fireworks and mortars. Seattle P D tweeted this out. On it. Saturday evening. Police have made at least three arrests and continue to work to this first large crowd on Capitol Hill. Earlier incident was determined to be in life safety issue declared Riot individuals continue to throw explosives and fire, mortars and police. As the battle the bones. At least two officers have been injured. Good times. Meanwhile, Seattle P D has declared that you're on your own. The chief of the Seattle P D. Carmen best Quote Dear business owner and or resident. Please know that the Seattle Police Department is committed to addressing life safety incidents and calls for service and responding to ongoing demonstrations and unrest in the city. He's also know that the City Council Ordinance 11 95 98 05 Crowd control tool goes into effect this weekend on Sunday, July 26 2020 This ordinance bands in Seattle police officers, the use of less lethal tools, including peppers, right that is commonly used to disperse crowds turned violent. Simply put. The legislation gives officers no ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd. It is important to bring to your attention that yesterday I sent the City Council a letter ensuring them. But as the chief of police, I have done my due diligence and informing them numerous times off the foreseeable impact of this ordinance on upcoming events. Letters attached for your reference For these reasons. Seattle police will have it adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend. I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in the same place in other words enjoy and naturally, the mob did enjoy burning out the Starbucks. Attacking other shops. Threatening people. Really, really good

Justin Maxon on Leading & Thriving as a 3rd-Generation Business Owner

"Well Justin thanks for coming on the show. Welcome to dose of Leadership Hey. Thanks for. Having me on. I love talking to young executives. Particularly in senior leadership roles I can relate to that I. Mean I think when I was about your age and your thirties that correct that's correct. Yes, outside of the Marine Corps I was. Getting a lot of accountability responsibility, but in the business world I was given a tremendous amount of my thirties in them, so I can relate so Was it? You ended up at NCRI and got to the senior position as such a young age. So the company in Sierra, national catastrophe restoration actually started. In nineteen seventy two, so we're going on forty nine years old and the founders of the company are actually my grandmother grandfather Oh cool so I was born into this. If you will plead in Sierra, blue in kind of a came along grew up in the company, so no one in the in the INS and outs of restoration and knowing the INS and outs of. Being being a leader is something that was groomed to do from from day one. Love, those stories and you know that the family owned businesses gives. The following rations, a tremendous opportunity that being said it certainly presents itself. What's unique challenges as I I? Can Imagine what what are some of the challenges that you faced again? Being being young as you are, and a family owned business right I mean there's some challenges there. Absolutely double jeopardy. They're. So being being a family member and being a young executive absolutely has its challenges I on the on the young executive portion. Of the big things, not only four with employees with our clients I think is that the the stereotype and specifically in our industry respiration reconstruction stereotype that. Equals experience. The what I've tried to do is really a kind of break that barrier and make sure that individuals employees and our clients understand that you know really knowledge. In your in your particular craft and in your industry, and your profession is what equals experience. I love that answer in. You're right. I think that I've I've trying to think of a couple of times I've coast couple of individuals who were in that consume spot that you were right and. One of the pitfalls that I've seen. In my experiences with the family owned businesses and someone that's young is the the inherent cynicism that you get from your team members right, and when you, when you feed off of that inherent cynicism, which is GONNA be there regardless of not no matter how good you know, no matter what type of leader you could be the best leader since. Gandhi or whoever? You're you're going to be faced with that. kind of inherent cynicism right. Yes, absolutely so. Yep being being a family member has even own set of challenges yet, but I think especially being third generation I think the statistic for third generation is as soon as their generation takes over. That's when the company takes a dive. So no pressure, no pressure meaning. No pressure compressor, so you know so big focus for me. has been the go against the odds. Yell? Don't be a part of that statistic and but to do it in the right way also not just to. Try to approve its the continue on the legacy. If you will the company but then also build on the exceptional Nissim that know the exceptional. Base that we've had over the last forty nine years, so that's that's really kind of a drive for me. In the reason that I wanted to get into this reason I'm still in it today. Yeah, love that answer and you can. I can tell from you know part of the solution to kind of. Challenge that you've been again that you've been faced with nothing you can do about is to. Approach it with that humble teachable spirit that I'm hearing from you right, and to appreciate in the awareness of the uniqueness of. The family business and what I also hurting your answer was you completely understand that you're standing on some pretty significant shoulders, and you better not screw this up right which I love that that's yeah. I love that kind of That humility I. Guess you know what I mean. That's what I heard from your answer. What do you think when you alive? Yeah I appreciate I present that if you could make a phone call into a few family members later and with the no. That would be fantastic. I mean you know every day? Within its no matter, the size of family business they're they're presents its own challenges you know it's unique in in our industry with the rest racing industry like I said with the age stereotype so. Every day is a new challenge. in all I can do is ask that Each for ways in each our clients continue to trust. What we're building in I continue to you know what I continue to bring to the company and what I'll continue to bring. Over the life of the entity in the legacy that in Sierra breaks so

"You know that thing where you know something bad is coming and your senses just kind of start going in slow motion, but you can't really do anything about it. Yet that except the economy, we have been spending this week looking at the different ways that six hundred dollars a week. An extra unemployment benefits going away next week is going to play out today. Slice is people in the GIG economy. Who as marketplace's Mitchell Hartman reports are likely to feel the pain most acutely. Jennifer Jesse has a one woman sat and act tutoring business in Woodbridge Virginia, heading into the spring. She had lots of work lined up. Then cove nineteen hit in mid March, and the cancellation started that when people would contact out. I don't think there's going to be an sat act and with money being so tight I would hate for you to waste your money for incomes down from about one thousand a week to less than two hundred hundred, and as a solo business owner. She wasn't sure where to turn it. Never really clear what I'm able to apply for, so I started with PPO. She didn't get one, but she did. Get unemployment through the federal program that opens up benefits to independent contractors and GIG workers. She's received about two thousand dollars. That kind of money is a godsend in this pandemic shocked economy says Heidi Sheer Holtz at the economic policy. Institute it's been absolutely essential. Ten million or more people who wouldn't ordinarily qualify for state benefits are getting them now. Now the Federal Government picking up the TAB and adding six hundred dollars a week, but that's about to run out rear talking about a pretty mammoth drop in income, if the six hundred dollars to expire fire, take the example of Austin Texas Theatrical Technical Directors Crawford. He's been able to make it through so far unemployment, but when the extra six hundred from the feds disappears I don't know yeah that Levy at four hundred a month with Texas unemployment benefits, which is impossible to live on.

"Welcomed or guest today, Hector Baretto Hector form headed up the United States. Small Business Administration today. He's the chairman of the Latino Coalition. Thanks for waking up early with us. Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader very. Very charismatic you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

We're dealing with unemployment we're dealing with racism. Some minority business owners are really really suffering from both the riots and covert nineteen pandemic so Steve Let's go to the phones talk to the People Ida everybody You know doing this time that we're all coping with on so many different ways. We decided to take some calls and just hear from some of our listeners. We don't have a all. We don't have a topic. Topic is just what's going on in his world to down me. It's all the same thing you know a moment ago. It was covert nineteen, which was the conversation and now I think we've gotten onto something that's. Equally as important in starting to have a more resounding effect or more people than I even thought it would, which is could be a good thing for the cause, so we're going to go to some of our listeners on the phone Let's go to our first. Call is Steve Harvey. Who is this? Is My spine. I'm calling from Atlanta Georgia Hi Myra. Hey, listen. You're a business owner here. How how is this affecting you? And what would you like to say I? Would they Jesus be Bob wire fence right now because this is a lot. I have been through an economic downturn. I've been through the recession. I've been through two three Republican administrations as business owner and I can tell you I've never seen anything like this. This is crippling now. I know for a lot of businesses. Before we got the people out in the streets, pandemic has a close so many businesses. How is Your Business closed I? Don't you don't? Don't have to give the name of what what type of business do you have and is it closed? And what do you foresee happening? Wish? She thought well I can tell you. This is my tenth year in business in this brand. I've owned Salon for twenty years. Over Twenty Years Since Nineteen Ninety, nine I'm moved to Atlanta. Nights and ninety eight and when I pull you. and. We felt in have always felt like. The streets were paved with gold. This is not a political city. This is not a city like New York Chicago, Detroit L. A. The cost of living with debt for entrepreneurs. So if you could see in, believe it, you can have it that reality television Atlanta, because I've been on reality TV and I know what that looks like, but this is real business people who if you set your mind to something and you had a drink could accomplish it, and it was not stagnant based on. On politics and the cost of living allowed it to be that, but this pandemic was nothing. Anybody could have prepared for in any way shape or form this the not like the housing crisis. It's not like the great recession where you could blame people who have forecast or over leveraged. This was something that was beyond our control and I'm in the beauty business where we can't. We can't say six feet away. You have to touch people and my salons and businesses have been closed since March twenty third. We opened three weeks ago. And to fifteen percent of the revenue that we normally do during this time of the year, which is our busiest time of the year, which is prom season, which is tax season, which is Mother's Day? Every major holiday before June is off big time of the season and our business was at zero. And it was if I hadn't been the type of business that I am. My employees wouldn't have I. See a dime because my employees are actual employees. They're not subcontractors their employees, so if it weren't for the federal government stepping in and giving the extra six hundred dollars on top of the basic unemployment that they get, they would have been homeless, and this is disheartening. It's sad. It's troubling and all of this. It's too much. Too much while. I understand that and now you know we we. We put in for you I mean we're praying for everybody to get through. This is still going to be some challenges even with the stimulus packages, and and even when it gets back to a sense of normality, still gonNa be a bit it just is. It's going to be a bit. It's GonNa. Take a while to get back to normal and I don't know what the norm is. GonNa look like either I don't know if it's going to be. Anything like it before I can play that. There would be what we had before. And you know what I'm okay. I mean things change. You know life has changed. Maybe this will cause some other things to be looked at everything so hanging there. Hey, will really appreciate your call meal and we pull it for you sister. Thank you so much for the call.

If we knew actually what we're in for we probably never would have struck out on our own because it's just way too crazy absolutely it's kind of the debris mindset in the beginning like. I could be my own boss and comes second. So so why is that? Isn't that because we read all the things about these great incredible success stories? And we think we'RE GOING TO BE THE NEXT. Michael Dell Bill Gates. Yeah exactly I think in some peoples cases like myself. It's it's forced onto them so I actually ended up getting laid off at the big box gym and Had become a small business owner but then just the dream of. Hey now my future is really in my control. And I'm very confident myself and I'm GonNa make the same big of course that's the dream like. Okay now I work for myself. I can work anytime I want to with anybody that I want to. It's going to be fantastic. I control over my own life but it doesn't quite turn out that way does it. Yeah no not not quite You find yourself working more hours Less less pay more expenses. And you're not like really doing the fun stuff anymore. You're not doing the stuff that you were doing beforehand. Which my case was actually doing the training with with the people who is more about the marketing bringing New People on organizing all of that. And I think that's the most difficult part of having your own business because most of us get started to solve a problem. Help a customer but we don't realize there's all this other stuff right around running a business as you said marketing keeping track of. Who's paid who hasn't paid setting appointments all the things that kind of get in the way of actually doing the work yeah. It was very humbling. I was like Oh yeah I can. I can definitely track money on my own I can. I can organize my calendar on my own. I can keep track of all my clients Piece of paper or my head and then it actually start scaling and I'm going. Whoa spending twelve hours a day trying to manage the business. And then you know it felt like another twelve hours doing the actual training and that's a that's a real big issue. You said when you scale tell us about your journey and how it all worked out so when I was in the big box gym I had like a or nine clients which was a good load for me I was also doing a full time college at the time too and then a little thing called college right. Exactly just mixed in there Anyone I struck out on my own I actually took a year off college and decided to Kinda grow. That business I.

"business owner" Discussed on The EntreLeadership Podcast

"Almost twenty years and served on our operating board. Jax thank you for being here with us today. Thank you good to have you jack. You and I Week ago were on spring break and we came home Monday morning and went right into what we've kind of called a war room. We took our normal operating board meeting and our weekly rhythm and disrupted that and said. Let's just jump in with all of our leaders Dave and start figuring out how we're going to respond to everything that's going on out there and so I want our listeners and viewers to remember that we also operating a business just like you guys and we're trying to figure out how to respond just like you guys. Are we all have new problems? Now that we're working to solve together so Jack Monday morning we come in. There's a little bit of energy in the air. What was going through your mind when we came back from spring break and realize like we've got a whole new situation on our hands it was so surreal because we left both of us left and things were sort of cautious like we were waiting to see how things might go and while we were gone. All of a sudden are building is emptied out everybody's working remotely which we had never done before We're trying to make sure things are gonNA work. We're trying to figure out. How do we do business while people are gone? How do we lead remotely which we had never done and we come back in and everything is different and all the plans that we had laid out where planners here all of those plans are put on hold while we stop and go? What's really important right now. So as a business leader know certainly we're trying to lead with confidence and also it's going through our head. What is worst case scenario? How do even plan for worst case scenario when we don't really have a precedent for something like this and of course we don't panic and go to worse worse worst case scenario and we don't want to freak out our team but we also have to kind of be realistic and you know how. How have you seen us? appropriately kind of set the the level and say this is potentially how bad it can get and then back out of a plan from that point. One of my favorite quotes. I've heard during this time. It's facts are our friends and what I've learned is with me and with other seasoned leaders is when you come in your emotions will tell you that your worst case scenario is far worse normally than what your actual worst case scenario is likely to be and so when we start laying down. What do the fax tell us. What do the numbers of our business tell us if our sales dropped by this percent or this percent or this percent and what I've found is in my own leadership time if I will look at on paper what the worst case scenario the most likely worst case scenario is an deal with that and get peace with that that if everything that could go wrong goes wrong? That's our worst case scenario and just take a moment as a leader and just breathe and go. I hope that doesn't happen. But that is my worst case scenario now I can set it off to the side and go. Let's get to work. Let's get to work making sure that doesn't happen. But I've Kinda Gotten Outta my head so that that emotion doesn't just hover over meal like cloud while we're trying to work our way through this when you're putting those ideas on paper and trying to figure out what numbers to us. You know. There was a scientist who said every model is wrong but some of them are useful. Yeah you know so. I think we can't go to like trying to perfect and have a crystal ball. But there's there's something about plugging scenarios. How do you kind of get close enough and move forward with that plan versus like you know really trying to get down to the exact percent? I mean. We can't perfectly tell so. How do you balance that tension? Well here's what we did here. We came up with phases. Hey Phase one is our revenues dropped by a few percentage points or less and And it feels like this is a a a difficult time in our business but not catastrophic. And here's what that looks like. And here's what we're going to do about it. Face to is worse. Our scenario is our revenues are dropping by more. This is happening. This is happening. Maybe the government doesn't let us come back to work as quickly as we thought. And what does that look like? All the way to a third phase. Which is wow. Things are far worse. They're closer to that worst case scenario and that we've planned forum but when we got him on paper and they will change they have to be fluid. They're going to change sometimes. Daily definitely weekly but as things are changing. We're able to sort of line up. This is what the facts are telling us today. These are scenarios in phases that we laid out that helps us keep a level head while we try to work our way through this. I've talked to a lot of business owners in the last few days and there's two different conversations around Worst case scenario and what you communicate with your team Some of my friends in the business owner community. We're telling our team everything and there's some who are saying. Hey my face. Three includes laying people off. I'm not gonNa tell them that because I don't want to panic the team. What's your philosophy on? How much to share. It's a balance for me. And here's what I mean by. That is as the leader. I can handle more fearful emotions. I feel like as a season. The leader then my newest leader on the team or somebody that just moved their family across the country to start with us and so. I want to be completely honest with our team. It doesn't mean I tell them every single thing that could possibly keep them up at night and what I mean by that is I. Want to be real with my leaders. But real with my leaders not sobbing uncontrollably out of fear about how great I am this business. I still am the leader and I'm charged with taking this group of people in leading them through a crisis but if I'll be authentic and sincere and tell them guys I didn't sleep last night either. I'm afraid I'm dealing with some things I've never dealt with before now. Let's roll up our sleeves and see how we're GONNA get through this. 'cause I believe by looking at the facts and the scenarios and the talent around this table. I believe we're GONNA get through this and so it's an opportunity to be sincere not over share but be sincere. Be Honest never mislead in any way and walk people. Sometimes they can only handle little bit of information at a time. Even though you've got a greater picture in your mind a love that that is so true Jack I WanNa talk about how we get our leaders. Our team to help us solve these new problems. I've noticed just among some of our leaders in the last few days that they're still a little bit of hesitation on what is my role now. My role two weeks ago was very clear. We talk about it all the time and now all of this new information is coming down and we're making quick decisions moving really fast and I think a lot of our team wants to get it right. They WANNA help but they also still need us to say. Hey I'm looking at you. Take this ball run with it. It's not normally even your job but I just need. Somebody who know can be the champion of this thing. What's important to bring our team in terms of communication with them. Bring them into the problem so that they have clear lanes to run IT I. I'll say that I've found. That are titles right now. Have less to do with what we're doing day to day than at any other time in twenty years that I've been here the CFO might be helping carry out an initiative. That has nothing to do with accounting. And that's the same way around. Our table is whatever needs to be done. Whoever's got talent the ability and the bandwidth to move that ball forward might be given that ball that opportunity to run with for the next twenty four to forty eight hours while we move the thing forward. Here's another thing I've found is when you give people responsibilities and they share in whether or not we weather the storm or not. It gives us more confidence. It gives us more of a sense of control that we have something to do with the outcome. We feel less like a victim and we feel like we're all working together instead of relying on just the leader or the leader and a few others to get us through this. We're all responsible to do whatever it takes to get through this well. These are great tips. You know we've talked about planning for a worst case scenario. We've talked about the value of getting your plan ahead and onto paper We've talked about appropriately sharing and being pretty transparent with your team Also let them know what the problem is and invite them into that so we can work on it as a team. How do we deal with the fact that we're all running about three times harder than we were just a month ago and we're exhausted? Our teams exhausted. I don't know about you but I mean I'm jumping out of bed first thing in the morning and it's just like this time-warp you know and I look up and all of a sudden it's nine or ten o'clock at night and I'm getting off a call and and I love a part of that because I just feel like our whole team is coming together and over communicating and working to do whatever it takes and I also know and and you do too that. It's not sustainable. So the value of downtime the value of taking a break and figuring out okay. How how am I going to pull back from the chaos for a second? How can we give ourselves permission to still do that? When everything's on fire when there is a fire in the business or just in your life when there's a crisis adrenaline goes way way up and all of a sudden you've got energy that maybe you didn't have before this crisis and you are able to work harder longer hours make decisions faster. And there's a certain amount of of positivity in that and adrenaline energy in that and we teach people to do the same thing when they're getting out of debt. Hey take an extra job. Throw some pizzas. Do whatever it takes but just as we've learned and getting out of debt that you can't do that as a long term plan you can't lead twenty four hours a day for a long period of time without hitting a wall and you may not see the wall coming but your body and your mind have a limit to where that adrenaline is. GonNa run out. And if you don't have a planned break in there to recharge your own batteries personally spiritually physically resting if you're not if you're not taking care of sort of the four walls of who you are as a then you're just going to run out of gas and you're not GonNa do your team too good. You got to plan. Some downtime. To recharge spiritually physically emotionally relational Jack Unit. I've talked about this. One of what I believe is one of the greatest leaders to ever walk. The face of this earth is Jesus Christ and if you read the Bible like I do you'll see times where Jesus was healing people and the multitudes were lined up and then all of a sudden he just went away to be alone and it never says in the scripture when everybody was healed then he took a break I mean. Can you imagine this line of people like a greeting line? And he just has to pick. And Say Hey. I'm sorry I can't get to you and help you right now because I've got to go be alone and pray. Recharge my batteries and so often think you know if Jesus did that None of us are him even as leaders. We WanNA fix every problem out there and unfortunately we're not going to fix every problem. I think is what we're saying Jack. This has been incredible before we jump off. Any final thoughts are words of encouragement for leaders right now in the midst of this chaos. Speak to their heart. My final thoughts are this. If you find yourself out of control. And there's some forced downtime a Lotta Times it's business owners. We are so busy working in the business that we're really not able to stop work on the business and we complain about that all the time. There's not enough time to stop and really think strategically about the next ten years. This is the perfect time for that. This is thinking time. It's also relationship time when this storm passes and it will. Your team will remember the things you said and did during the storm. Use this as a time to encourage to inspire to lift others up when you see them. Getting tired and weak use this a time to build relationships or to mend broken relationships and win this passes. You will be glad you did jack. Thank.

"No you said on our operating board and and Dave is very much in this stage right now where he's thinking about how our business nine hundred people lives is passed him. So what has it been like to get to spend time with a business owner that is in that stage. Well it's really great. You know and I gotta be honest. I was really in mature and and kind of naive in my world view about business when I started here and Davis taught me so much about thinking about this idea of legacy and what. I've learned what I've been inspired by as I've ever as I've said at his feet and I've I've heard more about this idea of second generation and third generation fifth-generation businesses that are thriving. You know it really is sad when somebody works as hard as most business owners work to build something and they're planting in these is fields that at the end of their time that the whole field just dries up. That's really sad. It doesn't have to be that way because they're still employees. They're still customers you. You've done all the hard work to get something off the ground. Nurture it and feed it and it should live beyond you. That's one of the really cool things about businesses. You can create something that for generations to come continues to have some type of life some type of energy some type of blessing people whether it's the the team or the customers hours and of course it's going to evolve and shift and the business model is GonNa look different from generation to generation but you could start something and get it into motion and so I would just challenge you know if you're on the treadmill and you go on sounds great but I'm just trying to pay the bills I get it. It's hard to think about legacy at that stage but ultimately what's life really about out. It's not about us. It's not about just growing our lifestyle and in the bills and and getting to have material success. It's about investing in people and bring in life into to the world in a way that they're really empowers people and builds people and so we get to do that with our team we get to do with our customers and and hopefully we get to do it in a way where they get to continue. Doing that was something we started even. We're not here well there. You have it the treadmill operator. The Pathfinder a trailblazer the peak performer. And it's all in and the pursuit of being a legacy builder Daniel and Sarah. Thanks so much for your time today. Thank you for walking this path so that others.

What stages our business in and as you start to become more aware aware of kind of where you self identify as a business leader the next question that always comes up for someone that's growth oriented is okay? Well how do I get the next level. How do I get to the next stage? And that's a question we've asked for a long time now and we're starting to get some answers because we've learned from business owners around the country that if you're going to move from one stage of business.
