Arizonans 65 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting next week

"This hour we took you live to the Arizona Department of Health Services Update on the covert 19 vaccine distribution. We had some technical difficulties, but we have those resolved and we want to bring you now. The rest of that briefing with all the details. Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks. The first pharmacies to come on board in Arizona are gonna be fries, Safeway and Albertsons. And so those will be included on our sites as we get notified, which pharmacies which specific pharmacy locations will have that scene? But they will be on our website and will be another source for those that are eligible to receive vaccine to go get vaccinated when this program becomes fully activated, more than 800 pharmacies will have covert 19 vaccine available in Arizona. We currently have more than 200 vaccination sites on our website that have received vaccine and this includes 45 community health centers as well. So if you are eligible and you receive care at one of our community health centers You could check on our website to see if they have received vaccine. And again just another update on helping our Arizona hospitals. We have been recruiting nurses with a nursing staffing contract here in the state. That's been one of our most successful endeavors. We are very excited. The majority of the nurses are here. When they arrive. They will stay on site for eight weeks with an opportunity to extend that On gesso. As of last week. 348 nurses have started work. We anticipated almost 200 more arriving this week again that We don't necessarily count them until we've heard that they have Arrived in the state and are attending on boarding at their assigned hospital. But we continue to work with our staffing contract to get all of the nurses that we can here in. Arizona State health director Dr Cara Crist went with her press briefing on covert 19 vaccine rollout that coming from the state Health Department. Go

Im a travel blogger. How do I pivot my business during COVID?

"The travel industry has taken a major hit because of covid nineteen and today's listener. Today's qna wednesday question from jim is spot on. How do you pivot. How do you change how to make something happen. When you took such a blow. I recognize the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter is because of covid. people can't travel or at least depending on the country. You're on the can't travel easily or safely. This is a suction we all say to ourselves. But it's partly true. Can't travel maybe internationally but people can do some traveling like a road trip even if you're in a country like australia where they really are super super strict when it comes to the covert restrictions where the close the borders between states like. You can't leave the for example. New south wales which is a stash rilya when there are a few cases pop up. You know the borders get close but you can travel within new south wales. So let's just define the problem. You can't travel internationally. travel blogger. the world's your choice ter- and there's so much material out there but this is an opportunity for you to create a different stream of income a different Chapter in your business career. Local travel road trips exploring. What's in your backyard. And of course you could start with your own local area but just because you can't go somewhere. Let's say for example. You can't go to australia and Help people in their local area to do some local travel you can curate some content curate. Some ideas from other videos other blogs and serve your audience for example in new south wales in australia. You can go to beaches. You can go to the blue mountains. You can go skiing. In the winter. In kosciusko mountain you can go to byron bay which is scored like a yoga hippie. Beachie vibe you can go. There's so many options within the state and people are hungry for break right so this is another option. Just kind of pivoting your business. Creating maybe books guys videos courses live. Coaching calls summits events where you help people or guide them to travel. Locally is easy for us to focus on problems and not think about. What can i do rather than i can't do. So yes you can't travel internationally but you can locally or you can help people travel locally another thing that comes to mind when it comes to travel blogging. It's like hey. I usually do. Exotic locations like how to go to vietnam for two weeks under three thousand dollars or backpacking around europe. And these are not really options anymore for your target audience. Yes they can't travel now but any of these trips will require planning and planning can be done anywhere. For example nicole took eight weeks and did a bit of traveling in europe and that trip took about nine months. The plan we did with some friends of ours. Jason and carolina zuck with a lot of fun. But there's a lot of coordination especially you want to many countries the different modes of transport. Those flying this train. There's renting cars there's accommodations their sites. They wanna see in each city. There's downtime there's beaches there You wanna shop so it takes time to plan a trip like that and for most people. They're not going to go on a trip. Like i gotta go to europe every day or go to vietnam every day or go to costa rica so they want to make the most and planning is a part of that and in my opinion planning is a big part of the fun of going on a big epic journey. A big trip is a travel blogger. You can really hone in on the planning part the preparation part of actual travel. And that's from the bag of tricks. Of rick steves He really focuses on the planning. You can do the same and you can even do A little bit of a niche thing like budget or luxury and you can even just down a little bit and either do luxury travel or budget travel or to travel in a big group that type of thing and this is actually a good time to do it because you know people are starting to see. Hey maybe we are on the other side of cova. The vaccine is how maybe in six seven nine months. It's possible to travel somewhere. Maybe in a year and that's just enough time to get the planning going to have everything sorted out so when you can't travel it's all planned out. You're all set. You're all excited. You're all packed and you're ready to go so planning is a big part of that so maybe spend some time focusing on that on your block. What to pack Luggage what to buy beforehand. What about travel insurance. These are all ways for you to really have revenue streams where you can do amazon associates and get commissioned when you recommend certain products items. I always say when it's downtime in your business for example in the software world and the bbc world december january notorious for being slow. So when it's slow when you're having a downtime it's a great time for you invest in content. So if right now things are a little slow in your travel blog. This a chance for you to really invest the time in building a youtube channel in writing a book on your travels and why you should travel or where you should travel to travel guides because it's going to take some time for you to create this content publish it put on the world market and by time it's all set and done people will start thinking about traveling again and it's an asset that you can use forever. It's not like you write a book and you only can sell it tomorrow. You could sell it for years to come. and of course it's trout guide. You can use as a basis to sir. Updating it year after year the other day our team at women ninja were running. Some webinars get. We like to use their own software and one of our team members. Cj she sharing some photos from our last Team retreat in bali and we were reminiscent with these photos. And who's just reminding is a how much of a great time we had on that trip. I thought to myself how many people take all these photos when the epic trips and they never look at them they never reminisce. They never really looked at it. And say wow what a great time. Those are ray positive feelings and more people should do that to remember the good times. remember the travels. So that's something you can lead that something that you can create for your community a weekly webinar where somebody can share their last trip. Share the photos share what they learn. Share their favorite memories. Everybody in the webinar can experience that plays virtually and get really excited about when they're going to go and see that place and of course if they're doing the sharing gives them a chance to rekindle their love for travel.

The year is over and workers left almost all of their vacation days on the table

"Guess I did like I say, I guess because I was told I did. But I don't know what happened to it. I can't. I can't. I can't figure it out. I give. I give Amy kind of a hard time because She gets a lot of vacation time She'd been working here a long time. She's been working here almost twice as long as I have. That makes her the senior member of the team and she gets to go on vacation when she wants to, and I get to go on vacation when I'm allowed to I'm allowed to when she's not so and that's fine. That's absolutely fine. That's the way it works in this business, although some people is some radio stations if you have a team like us to people or three people working Some and I had this happen in Los Angeles they hired hired me and my partner that I was working with. They said that they said, Well, look, rather than break up the team. We'd rather If one of you goes on vacation, the other takes a vacation to us. Oh, wait a second. You're telling us we get twice as much vacation than we otherwise would. Oh, yeah. I said no, Let's not do that. Really? I said, Yeah. I'd rather not do that. That means that the two of us are gonna be on vacation like eight weeks out of the year. That's crazy. How do you expect the radio state radio listeners to? Ah, you know, grow to like you if you're never there, So anyway, it's just a It's a weird business. But here's the thing. The National Bureau of Economic Research has done the research because that's what they do. And they say, on average this past year, First of all, the average workday lengthened by nearly an hour for everybody who had a job, And that's because there's a lot of people that did not have a job where they lost their jobs or They were under employed so To take up the slack. Those of you who were not furloughed or let go. Had to work a little bit longer than just a little bit every day, but it comes up to about an hour. The average workday. So that Z kind of a drag. As clear Barnes, senior vice president of human resource is that monster worldwide, said When your kitchen table becomes your office, it gets harder and harder to distinguish between work and home. So she's talking about people working at home. It's a lot of people have done and that's a nice thing. It's a It's a cool thing about, but like most nice things, it's somewhat a double edged sword. She's right. You can't tell the difference between work and home. And it doesn't occur to you to take a vacation and I suspect a lot of us. You have a strong work ethic kind of thinking the back of our minds. I don't really need to take vacation. I'm me and I'm home. Don't have to go to work, so I'm not working Well, you are working. You're working from home, but you're still entitled to your vacation that people are taking their jobs. Even before the pandemic, American workers used only about half of eligible vacation time.

Omni Hotels Accepted Millions In PPP Funds But Didn't Pay Workers

"A lot of hotels closed their doors in the spring. And some still haven't reopened. These hotels were able to keep their workers on the payroll because of funding from the federal paycheck protection program. But one national chain omni hotels and resorts is under fire for laying off than and workers. They use the funds for other purposes bill driscoll of member station w. esa in pittsburgh reports one. Leadoff worker is killed. Sia moronta a health club attendant at the omni. Providence in rhode island. She's worked there twenty one years more onta. A single mother with children applied for unemployment and food stamps. Then she heard what she thought was good news. I well struggling to provide for my family. I learned that they only have received some ppp money great. At least you know. They're going to help us. Can't buy when it comes to basic needs. The ppp is the paycheck protection program. The half trillion dollar initiative was part of the huge pandemic relief. Package congress passed in march. The p p offered loans. That are forgivable if employers you sixty percent of the money for payroll related expenses. Ep was designed as an alternative to unemployment at least for the eight weeks of payroll benefits. It supplied the omni. Providence applied for a two point six million dollar loan and said it would be chained some two hundred fifty jobs. Balloon was approved in april but eight months later with unemployment benefits run out and health coverage long-gone meranti and the other laid off are still waiting right now. We are in december and we having here anything about using that money to help. James employees moronta belongs to the service workers union unite here with three hundred thousand members. In north america using government data unite. Here says omni. Hotels received a total of seventy six million dollars. P p p loans about a third of that went to hotels where the union represents workers. Carlos outta maiyo is unite. Here's executive vice president boston. I've spoken to hundreds of workers to work at the army. Parker house at not of them have received a single dime of this money and looking at this winter a lot of them could really use it. So where did the money go in a statement. The omni chain based in dallas said it didn't use the funds to pay workers because the hotels were closed or operating at low volumes. Ppp rules allow a business to use the funds for payroll even if it were closed but the omni chose not to instead the chain promised to repay the loans with interest at least the part of the loans that are not forgiven but these loans carry a below market interest rate of just one percent which angers demayo it's disgusting companies. Wanna try to use this as a way to get a low interest loan from the federal government. Critics say repaying the loans beside the point. Lisa gilbert is executive vice president of watchdog group public citizen. Thank you think about other businesses.

Complete stranger's generosity helps save a baby's life

"Percival's dead U S. Coast Guard chief Petty Officer Collins Spencer as the Fisher House story of families. Love continues. When we were staying at Fisher House. Courtney was still on bedrest pregnant with personal 21 weeks along, and there was a family that was staying there and they had six cans of the husband and wife and I've never met him before, but we just started chatting one night at dinner and I came out and I just sat with him because I didn't know anybody there, really and I started telling our story said that Courtney's What kind of right on the cusp of viability for for a baby if he was born, we're not quite there yet, And I remember this guy looks at me and he goes to see this little baby over here and he's holding about 1.5 year old, he said. This baby was born at 22 weeks and one day and I said no way and said We're like five days from that, and six days later, personal was born. I never knew how important that would be to make that connection that night at dinner, and to this day, we're still friends. They really helped us through our nick. You stay because they had literally just gone through the exact same thing a year and a half horse. Confusing because of how scary the position we were in, and it's very rare the position we were in giving birth earlier, possibly giving birth but early for calling to come into the room and be like you would not believe who I met out in the dining room, he tells us and then he gives me the wife's number. And I didn't meet her until personal was three or four months old. But we were messaging each other every single night and especially after he was born. I'm like, I don't know what this means. Oh, my God, I'm scared. And it was just this complete stranger that call. It happened to me in the dining room there. The Fisher house that Yeah. Now 18 months later. It was amazing to have that support to know someone who's been through what we went through. And it was completely serendipitous. So personal. The main part of our story here was born at 22 in two days of station. Normal entity, a sporting peaks on guess, Oh, anything but before 28 weeks is considered a micro preemie, very small. A lot of hospitals in the country won't even try to offer care for babies born before 24 weeks. But there is about one third in the country that will give her give recess of Asian or offer care to try to save babies born at that 22 23 with Mark and we just happened to be at one of those, and so one morning I woke up. It was about 4 A.m. and I was in pain and I'm like something's not right. I was 22 weeks and two days pregnant. This is January and the last cup we head straight to the ers. I'm telling the story of your birth. Um, I ended up spending seven more days in the hospital fighting an infection, so I was able to go down and see personal all the time. Colin still stayed in his room a few nights and then stayed up Fisher House and would come back. I was released after seven days of being impatient, and that actually really started our big journey of Fisher House. We had been there about five weeks before I gave Earth. We were there another six months after I gave birth for about the first two months. We weren't sure if personal was gonna live or die. He got sick it times. He got an infection. He ended up meeting heart surgery, and we took turns calling and I one night one of us was from the night of Fisher House, and one person would sleep in Personals room. The next night, we would switch back And there was a lot of little things that it was so nice to go back to an actual home and not a hotel room and not the hospital room. And so many nights, you know, you would show up at seven at night after spending a day in the Nikki with personal and I'd spent the night before, and I was eating hospital food, and there would be a random group that donated a dinner. You know, there was little things that Fisher House kind of helped with. They found some people in the community and we got some donations of some baby stuff, which was actually kind of amazing because I was so early at the time. I didn't buy anything yet. We didn't have anything reversible, and so you know, they kind of organized I got some gift cards, and I was able to go buy out one's ease. And it gave me a lot of hope. It was really nice to sit back in the room or to go out, you know, and pick out something and say, Hey, one day, my son will get aware that especially during those first eight weeks or so when it was really Really if he if I had a chance to talk to the Fisher family, I would probably just start out crying because honestly, I can't articulate how much it meant to us, and I would just tell them then they're geniuses. They came up and they implemented and they designed this idea for something you didn't know you needed. But it it makes the world to so many people who need it. It will always sit in my heart as one of the most amazing foundations, one of the most amazing places and just the best charity in the world because they really helped us just a normal family. A normal military couple in our greatest time of me. And they helped us not only with the bare minimum, but they went up. The Fisher house is above and beyond what you need. It's what you more than what you need. It's enough to help you thrive through these hard situations. Courtney and Colin. Thank you for your service and best wishes for Percival. The Fisher House story a family's love. We'll be back to close

Remember When? 2020

"Welcome to new challenges remaining our usually annual most years we get around to it remember when episode four twenty twenty. I've been rothenberg. Always remember my dear friend courtney win. Hi courtney how are you. I'm doing well then. And how are you happy. December happy december to you as well. We were just sort of talking before we started recording about how this like year feels very different for this show. Like remembering things experiencing things was very different in twenty twenty and there's obviously know like a very clear break on in the episode about in chronologically when we stopped when we were going to things and we stopped going to things we experienced things remotely and in person. So i'm just curious before we forget started like what was this exercise of. Try and get notes together or wherever for twenty twenty. How how did it feel in vague terms. Yeah i think the initial challenge for me was trying to divorce. How i felt about the twenty twenty tennis season literally the encore results and the story lines and the narratives of what would be normal tennis. You know under any other circumstance trying to divorce that or untangle that in my feelings about that from my feelings about two thousand twenty as a year and it you know. I don't anybody who has listened to. Ncr is throughout you know since february knows about you know the arc and the struggles. I think both of us have had with respect to once. The shutdown came and once so much uncertainty hit the tennis tour but even more so so much uncertainty hit our lives in addition to just living in the midst of a deadly global pandemic that it was just hard to care about what was happening after march. And maybe obviously. I think that that you can talk about it separately from your experience for myself. There was an uptick of that once tennis returned so once we got back to to to to work for me effectively in palermo and palermo rolled into prague and progress into lexington rolled into cincinnati new york. A and you know. It was really nonstop but my memories of january and february so being in australia and then being in doha which was my final tournament site are so much more vivid and crisp and clear in my head compared to the effectively. What eight weeks or so of tennis smith longer than that. I suppose but but tennis that we got once we returned in july. It's all very much a mushy pile of potatoes From from august on yet. Because for me. I feel very similarly and for me. It's weird because usually did remember when episodes the tricky parts. The hazy parts is january. Right is the beginning of the year. The stuff at ten eleven months has passed since we've experienced it of piecing together like. Oh yeah i remember this that whatever. And that's still kinda the case in twenty twenty like those are still like descendant memories but they're also in some ways the clearest ones we have because those are what we were there in person for. And i'm thinking about how experienced the french open which was the most recent major tennis event right. It was me sitting at my desk and my computer. Which is something i've been doing. You know in various forms since in this room since april whether it was binge-watching british game shows or watch enough it all kind of just like in the same place in senior doesn't change and we're so used to these rhythms of being along the travelling circus tour and having this scenery shift all the time. Even if the players say the same the people say the same largely lake having it. Be a moving picture in here. Only very small part of the picture. Move ray at our screens moved and so that makes it like it. It makes it much smaller. If like you're if you're watching. Were staring an envelope. Only the postage stamp is changing. It's still the same envelope and that's sort of how it feels for parts of it. So it's it's a less a lot of it's going to be a lesser visceral memories. We have things like you know even like big things like jovic getting defaulted from the us open. Let's say like a big like remember where you were when you did. That was like yeah. It was my room like it's very pinky and the brain. Like what are you going to do tonight. What are we gonna do tonight. brain. We're gonna do what we do every night. Pinky we're going to try and take over the world. It this is. The pandemic has kind of felt like that in a lot of ways. It's like what were you doing. What i did the entire pandemic. That's what i was doing when x happened when this happened. It's just like you know it. It's yeah it's it's tough. It's tough to sort it out and you're right. I think that the lack of change of scenery and just and you know as just common sense like the lack of electricity. That we in an adrenalin data today. One that we are used to enjoying not enjoying like a good time but like that we get the benefit of the adrenaline. Were running on fumes during slams. I mean like it's exhausting. It's a very high stress environment but it. It helps you to your job and here. It's like rolling out of bed every day at one thirty. A m forcing myself to go to sleep at four. Pm the night before like all of this sort of stuff you know it For weeks on end trying to get excited about something. That's happening in the middle of the night like i'm so clearly you know when we're in australia. We know what's happening in the middle of the night in the us. But it's not the middle of the night for us there but here like covering the french open at four five o'clock in the morning west coast time. It was hard. it was hard to motivate. And therefore you're distracted you're distracted you can't really focus on thing that's happening. I'm not a neurologist. Obviously but i do feel like there has to be some sort

Because of Vaccines, Ultra-Cold Freezers Are the New Hot Buy

"In a sea of stress. Inducing headlines there is one seemingly perennial bright spot these days vaccine news the scientists researchers and doctors that have been working on a covid nineteen vaccine seemed to have made great strides toward finding effective inoculations to help protect us from the virus. Pfizer was the first to announce its vaccine in early november. The company said it showed more than ninety percent effectiveness but the vaccine also has an inconvenient distribution issue it has to be stored at minus seventy degrees celsius. That's colder than antarctica in winter. Maderna's vaccine announced later in the month had similar efficacy rate and similar storage needs. Both vaccines must be sold in special ultra cold freezers throughout their journey from manufacturing plant to where the vaccine will be administered. Those super cold freezers cheap. Their price tags may be as high as thirty thousand dollars but those frigid freezers are selling like hotcakes. Hospitals in government entities have been snapping them up to help distribute the vaccine to the masses even employers are getting on board. Automaker ford bought twelve ultra-cold freezers last month. In an effort to ensure its employees can get the vaccine tra- cold freezers. Aren't your garden variety ice cream and frozen pizzas storage units. They're typically the domain of university labs in hospitals that need to store cell extracts dna or other specialized materials at extremely low temperatures. Both a ba leading vaccine's use a relatively new technology called synthetic messenger are in a or emaar in a which attaches to the virus helping the immune system recognize attack it. The challenge is that ima- a needs to be kept super cold. Keep enzymes from breaking down according to smithsonian magazine when the team at so low environmental equipment manufacturer of these units got wind of the pfizer. Vaccines storage requirements. The company started ramping up production so low vice president dan hesler toll cnbc quote. It's been crazy. The company stockpiles been depleted in orders or taking six to eight weeks to fulfil one of solos biggest. Competitors thermo fisher. Scientific was ramping up production at the fastest rate in its history according to a company spokesperson talking wwl a local abc television affiliate in asheville north carolina. The company expects fourth-quarter earnings to grow about sixty percent over the same period last year driven by covid nineteen response but even with ultra low freezer manufacturers. Hard at work to meet demand. These vaccines have unveiled another weakness in the supply chain the cold chain. Most vaccines need to be kept at a specific temperature until they're administered. That's typically around thirty five to forty five degrees wired reports but the super low temperatures that the most promising covid nineteen vaccines require. Make it tough to distribute the vaccines widely in the highly developed north american economies. Let alone in places where equipment capacity isn't close to sufficient like parts of africa. Asia and south america wired estimates that upward of twenty five percent of all vaccines are lost because of a lack of reliable coal chains in some countries. Just one ten. Health centers have a proper vaccine refrigerator according to that report and that includes rural hospitals in the us. Allen morgan chief. Executive of the national rural health association told stat news that poorer hospitals can't afford the pricey ultra-cold freezers nearly half of us. Rural hospitals were operating at a loss as of april of this year and the pandemic has only made things worse that means that workers and residents in these areas may not have access to the vaccine. It's possible that the manufacturers may update their cold-storage guidelines or that new vaccines. That don't require such ultra-low temps may come along. But for now lack of a stable co chain to distribute the vaccine to some people who need it most is a situation with legitimate chilling concert

Challenges Await Next Treasury Head

"Former federal reserve chair janet yellen has been at the forefront of us economic policy for decades. If she's confirmed as treasury secretary she'll be taking on a new role during a time of deep political division and significant economic challenges. Joining me now to talk more about yellen's career and the roadblocks she could face going forward his wall street journal senior writer john hills and wrath. Hi john thanks for being here her. They're great to be here. So john janet yellen if confirmed would make history here as the first woman to lead the treasury after also being the first woman to lead the federal reserve. Tell us more about her extensive resume and what's led up to this moment. I don't think that's the big history being made here. The big history is that she's the first human regardless of gender to be treasury secretary chairman of the council of economic advisers and federal reserve chairwoman. So she's had a tri factor. If you add in the fact that she's also a tenured professor from berkeley then. She's hit a grand slam. This is an achievement that no person regardless of gender has achieved and the realm of economic policy. Making you know. I compare her to george shultz the republican. Who served as secretary of state for ronald reagan and also treasury secretary secretary of labor and director of management budget under richard nixon. This is just a person with about as complete resumes. You can get so. Let's talk a little bit about her previous roles as opposed to what treasury secretary rigby much less political role than treasury secretary. What about her past experiences in washington have prepared her for that. And where might we see some challenges if for her taking on a more political role. The fed is a very close in academic place. They kind of pride themselves on not getting into the mix of political debates and being. I wouldn't even say bipartisan. But eighty partisan nonpartisan. Janet yellen did serve as the chair of the council of economic advisers in the clinton administration in the late nineteen ninety s so. She has had exposure to political debates with big personalities. It's interesting though. She's married to george echo off. Who is a nobel prize winning economist in his own right and when he won the nobel prize back in two thousand and one he wrote in his autobiography about the challenges that she faced kind of managing the point ical heat waves of washington the role. He played in supporting her so she's walking in to an environment right now. That is going to be very heated in very point ical. There's gonna be a lot of fights over how much spending the government should do to get the economy out of recession and how much debt it should take on in the process. And she's going to be right in the middle of it. She's a very highly credentialed individual. And i think our challenge is going to be managing the human part of it the political part of it with republicans on capitol hill and the inevitable divisions that are gonna show up inside the biden administration itself. How do you think she will work with congress. She has support among democrats and republicans. Well you know. She knows her way around washington. That's clear and as fed chair. She did have to deal with congress. She had to go up there and testify on a regular basis to give reports on the economy and monetary policy and regulatory policy. So she knows her way around capitol hill one of the reasons that i think that president elect biden chose her is a because it does seem like she's going to have buy in from the progressive wing of the democratic party. She's actually very close to elizabeth warren and also moderates among democrats and then i would say she has a chance with some moderate republicans to try to win them over republicans in the senate in particular to try to win them over on some big debates. And that's where. I think she's going to end up focusing a lot of her attention. You know if she can hold the democratic party if i should say biden can and then win a couple of middle of the road republicans than they might be able to get their way on really big questions about fiscal policy and stimulus and driving this economy out of recession. That was really devastating and twenty twenty and that brings us to some of the key challenges. What do you think some of her first actions will be treasury secretary. And what are those big challenges. She'll be facing from the start. There's so much and this is one of the issues where the job. The treasury is much different than the job at the fed. The job at the fed comes down to two or three things. They gotta make a decision. Every eight weeks about whether interest rates should stay the same or go up a little or go down a little. And then they've got to be they're very involved in the regulation and oversight of banks and then they've got to be ready to deal with crises financial crises at the treasure. You have the tax portfolio you have sanctioned portfolio with international sanctions against countries like north korea and iran. You have the debt portfolio. You have some say in the budget. Portfolio is just a very wide and expansive portfolio. I think the first thing that she's going to confront is a decision that her predecessor will have made. Steven mnuchin called on the fed just a few days ago to end some rescue programs that were aimed at small and medium-sized businesses related to corona virus. The treasury had been designated some money to contribute to the fed program and secretary mnuchin said. The program had expired in the feds gutter return. What's left of the money but you know the new treasury secretary is going to have to decide whether the end that program as mnuchin has set out to do or renew it when that gets to the bigger issue. which is the economy itself. Is it a major crossroads right now. We had a devastating downturn the economy effectively shut in march and april it reopened. We had a very large bounce back in the summer. But it shows signs of slowing. And it's incomplete this recovery at a time when the corona virus is spreading again. Some states are putting in new restrictions on economic activity and there is a race for a vaccine to control the virus. So there's just so much happening right now and it's gonna be yelling role to guide. President elect biden on how hard the government should push to help the economy through a period where it can go one of two directions. It could go back into recession. Or if we get to vaccine quickly enough we could be into. You know a really strong extension of the recovery that we had earlier this summer. So there's just a lot of uncertainty and a lot hard choices to

Doctors and nurses stress as COVID-19 surge overwhelms hospitals

"As cova cases climb in hospitals around the country filled to capacity nurses doctors and other healthcare professionals were caring for these patients. Say they are burned out. I am elizabeth riley and a registered nurse. Elizabeth works in cumberland wisconsin where corona virus cases have skyrocketed over the past few weeks back in the spring. She volunteered to go to new york. City were infections were surging there and working in intensive care unit but now she seeing troubling echoes of that earlier stage in the pandemic it own hospital when we don't have staff because they're out sick or out quarantine then we've got people who are picking up extra shifts and we have people working long long hours many days in a row and that was something i did when i was in new york and i didn't i didn't make it my full twenty one days just because i was so sick and so tired because i work that many days in a row of twelve hour shifts now. We don't work eighteen days straight of twelve hour shifts but we will work a lot of extra hours a lot of extra days. Everybody has banded together as a team. I think you're going to see that in any organization especially this one where i work within the last probably eight weeks. We have seen a huge spike in cases and it has had a profound effect on what we want to do and what we can do both in that there are high high numbers of infected people in our communities many of whom are winding up coming to our hospital but we also have staff members who get infected with covid and then they can't work but even as elizabeth and her colleagues have banded together. She struggles with the number of people in her community. Who continue choosing not to wear masks. It's i don't wanna say hurtful. Because i think that people who decide not to wear masks are not necessarily trying to be hurtful. I think a lot of those people simply don't understand the truth of the situation or choose not to believe the truth of the situation and when that affects my coworkers in the way it has. I find it quite upsetting because i believe i work with the best healthcare professionals in the country in the world i feel like they're sacrificing themselves to some degree for people who for whatever reason don't want to believe it's as big a problem as it is. It hurts my heart to see such really wonderful professionals. Having to put themselves on the line time just trying to get through in the community without getting

She thought that was going to help the baby, make it to the safer zone of twenty eight weeks. She was experiencing lots and lots of bleeding and at twenty eight weeks doctors would have given her an APP doral and she would have been induced to deliver but just twenty weeks again, she began bleeding excessively leading to an emergency hospital visit. She wrote the fluid around Jack Become very low. He was barely able to float around at some points. I swear it was solo. I could lay on my back and feel his arms and legs from outside my belly after couple nights at the hospital my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming it was time to say goodbye he just wouldn't survive this and if it went on any longer I might not either she also addressed the people that were calling her out and took issue with her choice to share Saatchi personal emotional experience on social media and she said initially she and John Legend or uncomfortable with taking those photos of Baby Jack after they knew he had passed and They were holding him in the hospital.

Now for the trump campaign incumbents generally have a financial advantage but there's reporting that that the trump campaign has raised one point one billion dollars since the beginning of twenty, eight nineteen and has spent more than eight hundred million of that already, and some questioning of why the trump campaign for example, spent money at a super ad long before average voters are tuned. In and meanwhile Jason the Biden campaign raised three, hundred, sixty, five, million dollars in August alone, which is a new one month record for fundraising like that and I. Mean obviously money is not everything trump was outspent in in two thousand sixteen but it's it's interesting to wonder whether the management of these campaigns could play play a role in the dynamic in these last few weeks to. Share and I think you know the Biden people. They have a lot of support in among wealthy people. I think Kamala Harris has been probably a good fundraiser among California's well to do, and so I think you know a lot of a lot of people have decided. that you people who run companies and so on. Have decided that you know they don't want any more of the trump show and I do think that they're going to give Biden a fundraising advantage I saw that the president is thinking about spending. Hundred million dollars of his own money by. You know I think I think that that's that that's a red flag for him. If he doesn't have enough if they don't have enough, for example, the contest in Michigan Nafta books on other states and that's also. Going back to what Kim said about the Senate not just going to hurt the president but hurt Republican chances in the Senate if the trump campaign has to pull back in be more selective about where they're spending. Kim. which which way do you think that cuts if president trump writes his campaign one, hundred, million, dollar check I mean Democrats will of. Course say he's trying to buy the election Republicans will say that he really means business and that it shows that he is a successful person who knows how the economy runs and it shows that he he can't be bought I mean there there are running your campaign. A check is a fundraising question of course, but it's also a political question. Right. One thing that I find interesting about Democrats is How none of them are talking about the issues that they were even talking about four years ago or eight years ago, which is how terrible it is that there is even money in presidential politics and how everyone ought to just take. A vow to not go beyond that federal matching fund that comes out, and that is a long gone theory at this point, and so it would just be humorous if nothing else for Democrats to say Nanna, you don't have enough money look our outspending you..

"And that's the problem with the Nana sources I mean, look, this is a bigger problem in the press. Okay. Just even four or five years ago. The use of anonymous sources that was meant to be something that you used as a last resort. Because everyone understands that you need to try to publicly identify sources as much as possible so that people understand where they're coming from and are able to gauge their reliability and credibility. Also in the past, you used anonymous sources to protect someone and one of the things that I saw pointed out by a another journalist was was saying look presumably I mean these remarks were made years ago who's being protected by keeping the names quiet here you know I it just looks like a hit job in the end and the bigger problem I think for this article. Is that you've now had more than a dozen people who were on that trip come out and say it simply is not true. So you're gonNA trust the people are on the record I'm by the way some of those include folks that really don't like Donald Trump very much including John Bolton saying I was there and this just didn't happen at least not when I was present. So you know I think in some ways, this could help the president a little bed in that There's not a lot of belief or trust in a lot of the people in the media these days, and they're certainly theme going around that the press is out to get the president. and. You have a piece like this is just it's very, very hard to to believe it given the unwillingness of someone to simply come forward and then by the way come for put your name out there, and then let your colleagues who are around you say if they remember things that way. By the way Kyle You. Know I don't think that it's made up completely I don't think that the sources just fabricated something, but it's just what's missing its context and you know. The story the part that is in quotes is one word you know losers and so on and you don't know really what was being referred to what was the context what was being talked about before was this a bad attempt at joke you know I'm sure something happened I. Don't doubt that trump has said you know extremely rude and and horrible things but you know it's just it's just a bunch of sort of out of context quotations strung together with an obvious. Motive of what it wants you to think. So you know I, think there's a distinction between. Making something up out of whole cloth and taking things out of context and spinning it. Another thing that could potentially change the election dynamic is a trump agenda. So we talked about this on a previous podcast. The president has put out a list of bullet points that he wants to achieve in a second term, but they are very nonspecific. For example, one of them is to cut taxes to boost take home pay, but no details on what taxes would be cut, who would benefit how it would be paid for. So some details from the president on what he wants to accomplish. I mean maybe could be used persuade some voters and we might get one item this week Cam there the president trump in two thousand, sixteen released a list of judges that he would consider appointing to the Supreme Court. He said he would do that again during this election and there's some reporting suggesting that could come this week I mean, do you think the courts is a.

"But how do you how do you think people should regular voters should? Take information like that. That is alleged in an article with all anonymous sources. That's really hard I mean I think it's an example of how you know Donald Trump has. Broken. With all sorts of norms and acted on all sorts of ways that you would not expect the president to act, and in the same way, the press has has done the same thing. So in this case, you know the press has its own norms of regulating its behavior normally. You know you wouldn't without evidence without something corroborating based something on the. Word of anonymous source in this way to say and. So you know for trump supporters, it shows the that the press is still out to get him and still ruthless and discarding safeguards as long as it's going to get at the right outcome in negative story about trump and. For his. Opponents at Joe's would. Would you know what horrible character has hasn't a disgraceful? Remarks that he has made I don't think it's going to move very many people I mean. I. Do think that's part of what his These are supposedly military sources and I think that's part of his sense of why he's now firing these these sort of over the top allegations that the military feels that the military establishment doesn't like him. I don't think it's GonNa move things I do. I do wonder this sort of this Russian bounty story that. The Lot of Putin had a bounty on American troops came out after his. His intention to withdraw troops from Afghanistan I think it's definitely true that just like any other bureaucracy, the military does leak stories to further its. Political interests at a at a given time and president trump has vehemently denied making those comments. Here's a tweet for them. He said. Quote. I never called John Loser referring to John McCain and swear on whatever whoever I was asked to swear that I never called are great fallen soldiers anything other than heroes. And as as a lot of people have pointed out, trump is on tape in two thousand, fifteen saying he never likes John McCain because he doesn't like losers. So at least half of that denial has a problem with it, but there's it's the question is is how much do you rely on and trust Kim those sources that you don't know the names Of them and so the for example, the Associated Press and Fi- a Fox News reporter have said that they have independently confirmed that those comments were made by the president but the confirmation also came from anonymous sources and you don't know if it's these the same group of people that are making their way around to different reporters confirming what they told the other guy..

"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal this is Potomac Watch. Welcome back and it seems to me Kim that trump's biggest problem is. What he struggled with all along, which is message discipline and a prime example of that is his Labor Day press event He started out talking about positive job numbers touting that this is going to be a v-shaped recovery talking about opportunities zones, but it was a pretty long event in by the end he was talking about how the top people at the Pentagon quote want to do nothing but fight wars so that all those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else they happy unquote he brought up. Then, he called Joe Biden quote a stupid person unquote and I I it's. It's beyond me to understand why someone in the trump campaign can't get him to focus more on the message that he wants to win this election. Well Yeah but could you name anyone over the last four years that has been able to convince Donald Trump to stay on message? And it's weird. He'll go through periods of time where he does and I've come to note them. It's funny if you listen to him when he's on the Tele Prompter, he tends to have this different cadence to his voice. It's almost kind of a little bit more sing song and you can tell he's reading. He's supposed to be reading but you just can't get him to do it for very long and that press conference was an excellent example of the problems of that in that he had some really strong things to relate in the beginning and they are by far the best issues for the campaign. talked about the uptick in jobs ten point six new ones since May. Unemployment numbers dropping talked about his plans to end the pandemic and work that was being done on the vaccine talked about his promises on how to continue re growing the economy whether it was tax cuts or further cutting regulations cutting new trade deals or opportunity zones, overlooked portions of the American economy, and then all of that Kinda got swept away as got on iffy started talking about Hunter Biden, and then he started talking about his disagreements with John McCain over the time and. Whether or not? Yes there was this military industrial complex his out to get him This just allows the press to go with those issues and print headlines other than the ones that are actually helpful to the president's reelection campaign in John McCain came up I believe in part because of this Atlantic article this article in the Atlantic magazine last week with had some pretty explosive allegations from anonymous sources. So it says that during a presidential trip in two thousand, eighteen to France. There was a scheduled visit to an American cemetery was that was canceled and then here's a quote from the article says in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers unquote and Jason there has been a a lot of a lot of commentary about this..

"You, know I think the some of the pollsters have tried to address that since two thousand, sixteen error when they called those battleground states wrong and they had hillary up by several points going into the election and then she lost those states by. It's going to depend a lot on. You know how accurate these calls How accurate these balls are and the map also can change. We've got to keep that in mind too I mean though the state that looks closest to joining the battleground crew is Minnesota has stoically a democratic state and trump did not win Minnesota in two thousand sixteen but he lost it by only about forty five thousand votes and I. It's conceivable that he could make that up this year. And another thing we should keep in mind cameras that they're still still eight weeks to the election. I mean what could change between now and November third could we have a couple more months of really nice jobs numbers have the trump administration announcing that it's approving a covert vaccine those are those things that could change the dynamic or there are other things that you'd have in mind. No? Definitely, there are lots of things that could change the dynamic number one. I, think is going to be the question of how prominent Corona Virus continues to be as daily theme only because remember Democrats made very clear all the way months ago that that was going to be their number one campaign tactic against Donald Trump they were going to say he was responsible for us in fact, responsible for lives lost I still remember Barack Obama during the Democratic convention blaming one hundred and seventy thousand deaths directly on. Donald. Trump, which is bizarre the idea that one politician has ability to stop a germ racing through a country, but that was going to be their main. Strategy against him now, we've seen the second wave begin to recede in the south. And southwest and the question of course, do you have yet another one If you look at places like New York, which has largely continued to go along without seeing a resurgence there is some hope out there among people that maybe herd immunity is a little lower than we thought or there's some aspect of this bias we don't understand, but there's a potential that it. Begins to recede as a daily drumbeat of news that gives Donald Trump the ability to talk more on the economy and the recovery We had some great jobs numbers that came out last week d other big thing that I and the other big thing that I think you potentially could be a big changer and we'll see as the debates that are coming up.

And then you can also take eight weeks. It's free paid vacation to sit at home. You know, what my biggest problem is with that that punishes people like me who didn't have kids. No it does.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's called for early elections for April setting the stage for three month campaign, riding, high in the polls Netanyahu appears all but certain to win a fourth consecutive term and place in history as the country's longest serving prime minister, those prospects could still be derailed by a decision by the country's attorney general on whether to file charges against Netanyahu. However Netanyahu made scant mention of the bribery and breach of trust charges in the three different cases in announcing the April ninth election. It's a question.

What might make chickens happy? They're putting sixteen breathes through some tests watching how well birds scramble over a barrier for food. How skittish they seem and whether they play with a fake worm. They say playing with a fake worm may be a sign of happiness. The researchers say it's an example of looking beyond how to minimize suffering to exploring whether animals can also enjoy their brief lives. Such ideas underscore, the broader lack of consensus around chicken, welfare animal welfare advocates think today's chickens have been bred to have massive breasts that harm their health and that the industry needs to. Switch breeds not just treat chickens better.

"Up. She charged one hundred twenty dollars per child for one hour class held one day a week for a total of eight weeks. She then made over two thousand dollars from that first class working total of approximately eight hours. So you do the math that breaks down to about two hundred and fifty dollars per hour. After that, she decided to expand. She has two classes that craft class n a jewelry making class. She also began to offer her class to other elementary schools in the area and to now holds class at five to ten schools per week. In eight weeks time doing this, she made twelve thousand dollars pretty good profit for working only one hour a day. You could say, making money using this model is child's play, but to be clear, this kind of work is it for everyone does take a certain personality type to work with kids and may put it's perfect side hustle for a stay at home mom or anyone with villa -bility in the afternoon. And team side-hustle school would like to add would also be good if you had a lot of patients to deal with large groups of young children. So far as worst part of the experience was teaching the very first class, she says it was chaos. She wasn't sure how to set it up or teach the kids and manage time simultaneously. It was a challenge to maintain control while keeping the children engaged. She learned from that experience. However, in is now a master at kids craft instruction. She also says it's helpful to research project ideas on Pinterest and Google image search before starting classes. So if you fit the Bill, if you are interested in this kind of project, how could you get started? The first step would be to approach your local elementary schools or your school district. If they allow private vendors to hold after school classes. The next step would be to find out what kind of background checks insurance you need. Once you take care of those prerequisites, all that remains is deciding what kind of class you'd like to teach. So what's next for this crafty mom for Noor may wants to continue expanding her classes to more schools which makes sense that she's doing really well with it. She also has a website where she offers it to to'real for sale on how to start your own after school enrichment class, even considering the possibility of franchise. Okay. So this is a service based side hustle, as opposed to a product may has to physically go into the classroom every day or whenever her classes are and teach that class to the kids. She's a really good hourly rate for it, but of course she has to be there. So these facts on their own percents, pretty obvious pros and cons. First of all, super low start up costs for project like this and her case. She had to do that background check in purchasing supplies, but the supply purchase, we're good for an entire year. And once you have that background check done, then it's done. It's a one off cost. There's also no inventory aside from those supplies. So the approval from the school board could take a minute but side from that, this kind of project is the sort of thing that you can start really quickly. You can start and get real world feedback. You know, right away pretty much if it's gonna work or not, or at least if it has real potential not stuck in a waiting period. You're not having to make decisions without a lot of information. So all that is great. Now with the product, on the other hand, you have more of an opportunity for passive income. Okay. So we recently featured the guy who has the three hundred thousand dollar. Coffee grinder. It's not a coffee grinder for sale for three hundred thousand dollars. He's just sold three hundred thousand dollars worth of this manual coffee grinder. A very small and simple basic item, and that's a product that sells every day on Amazon. Okay. So the guy who sells it can sleep in one day. If he ever decides to take a day off, you can say, you know what? I'm gonna sleep in not even gonna make my morning coffee. And yet when ever he rolls out of bed at noon and checks his website, stats, he can see he's made money in those hours that he was oversleeping. Okay. So that's pretty cool. Another consideration this decision of Joe have chronic have service, which we won't go into a lot here today, but just to touch on it is the role of personality. So often talk about skills like how skills are so important. And I think it's actually more important to pay attention to your skills than your passions while your personality also matters. So some people really enjoy teaching or doing consultations or coaching or mentoring, whatever it is. Other people would say, absolutely not. I don't want to do that. I wanna stay on my computer and find coffee. Grinders can resell to other people that I never actually meet. So there's a lot more to that, but that's the general principle. It's not just what business is best with side-hustle. Should you choose? It is what is best for you and also for you at this time because to go back full circle where we started, I also can change and it's actually very common that you're gonna do something for a while and then something changes either you change or the environment changes the market changes, the need to find something else. So may was able to do that. She had a previous business reselling phone chargers which has nothing to do with this project that was a product based business, but she was able to apply her creative thinking skills and her willingness to take action to create this new completely different side hustle service based business where she brings in twelve thousand dollars eight weeks. So good work may. Thank you for sharing your story with our community and listeners. Hope you enjoyed this one. Always remember, inspiration is good, but inspiration combined with action is such better today. Shouts are at satisfied school dot com. Slash five ninety eight.

I hope you enjoyed yesterday's buzzword these story all about these six figure, beekeeping business that was beekeeping business set in Minnesota, which is not known for being the most hospitable environment for bees. But as you may have heard yesterday, that couple found a way to make it work and it's working really well for them. The journey continues today, and let's talk about this principle of how what you're doing now is very likely not going to be the same thing. You're doing five years from now, and that can be turned a lot of careers, even in terms of day jobs and things you go to college for, you're not necessarily going to be doing the same thing five years from now, but it's especially true in the world of side hustles. Now, a lot of business advisors will tell you that you need to select projects that are sustainable for a long period of time. I think that is really bad advice for regular people. This show side-hustle school and everything I do in my work, it's focused on individuals. It's not focused on companies. So if you're out there trying to build Microsoft than maybe that advice is good, but if you're out there just trying to do something for yourself. Not everything has to be sustainable, not everything has to last forever in my journey. I've made many changes on lots of different kinds of projects, and that has been a strength, not a weakness. So keep that in mind. And today, story in particular is about a mom per Noor who starts new project that brings in twelve thousand dollars in just eight weeks of this is a service business. And recently we've been talking a lot about products. So at the end of the road, I'll give you a little refresher on the pros and cons of each of those products versus services.

I can sixteen may about was a working mom. Looking to start a side hustle wasn't new to the entrepreneurial lifestyle. And the early days of ecommerce may ran a business re-selling phone excess series on EBay Amazon, but after eight years and a lot of other sellers entering the market, her business was no longer profitable. She and her husband were also clipping security cameras that this market quickly dried up to. Because of her experience with the ups and downs of business may wanted to diversify. She was reluctant to be totally dependent on one source of income by this time or son was in the third grade, and she wanted to start a new business that had a low start up costs and wouldn't take up much time while considering options may remember that her son enjoy taking after school enrichment classes. These classes are offered for one hour immediately after school dismissal. They range from sports like basketball and tennis to less physical activities like chess or mad science. The courses are offered by private vendors who come to the school and kids would stay after school to participate because they were fun. This was also ideal for parents couldn't pick their children up right away. They would pay a fee directly to the vendor and can rest assured knowing their kids were safely entertained while having an extra hour in their day. When may son was in preschool and kindergarten, he really enjoyed making crafts. However, the country school stopped making crafts with kids after first grade. This was as inspiration. She says, starting crafts after school enrichment class at her son's school seemed like the perfect new project. May's first step was to receive permission to become vendor to do this. She had to present her class idea to the school board when she received approval. Her next up was to complete a criminal background check required by law for those working with children. She also had to purchase liability insurance. That may sound complicated. It's actually pretty simple for the background checks and insurance. She paid about three hundred dollars and craft supplies for a full year emir four hundred dollars. So start up costs are pretty low. And after those needs were met, she was ready to get crafty make expectations low for enrollment. In the first class, she thought she'd be happy of six students enrolled but much to her surprise and pleasure. She had eighteen kids sign up.
