"Are we really going to pretend that they would let you travel around the world with no problem. It's not what they're telling you it is well. That's another consideration. Certainly i mean i have been asked. That question actually got some play in the press. When i made the answer. I think that if in fact it is seriously considered. It's on the table. we're not there yet. In fact if you look at the six point program that the president came out with a couple of days what we were talking about with travel was doubling. The fines of people who in fact are traveling. And don't get tested. And i and i lead that the idea about requiring vaccination travel is something that is on the table discussion. It has not been decided yet. Great so now instead of the century and we're just going to charge you double for it right so go ahead and spread it. Going spread the biggest pandemic in a century. We'll discharge you. We'll put on your tap but it's for your safety though right. Just give us money and we'll let you go and spread it and that's keeping everybody safe. That's the stupidest thing in the world. That's like carbon tax right so we're going to pretend like by taxing everybody that that it's going to stop the problem right right because the problem is the average person using gassner car. No the average problem is the gigantic corporations destroying the planet. And they'll just pay the tax and keep doing what they've always done and use it as a cost of doing business but you who can't afford it you'll cut back because you can't afford it that stop the problem. No it just puts more money in the pockets of the people that are to convince creating the problem. Yeah but we'll double fined you for doing something that's super dangerous gonna kill everybody like good. God why are we too stupid to see this..

"Is Laura Gassner adding? She's a keynote speaker, author and founder and chief catalyzing officer at limitless possibility, also the author of a book that you may recall we profiled when it came out limitless how to ignore everybody. Carve your own path and live your best life, but there's just a lot that's going on lately that we probably ought revisit this subject, so Laura thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me back. When author's books, particularly what I would call a self development. Book. I mean in that category. The author themselves. Develops and grows and changes and has a new view. Your book is titled Limitless I wonder if your view of what limitless is or means has evolved since you've written the book. Well my own definition of the book actually has evolved since I. wrote it. When I I wrote. The book actually thought I, wrote a business book. This is a book about. How do you figure out what means what meaningful work is and then create a career to do it? And then I started getting media attention. I got I got. Invited to the today show Good Morning America and all these places, and they were asking me questions me that their audience was like. Well, what are you talking about? Why would I the book doesn't make any sense for this? It's a business book for entrepreneurs. It's for business people and they're like yeah, but and what I realized is that I didn't business book I actually wrote a personal development self-help book, and then I had this leg. Oh God, I wrote a self help book Oh terrible until I realized that. That self is actually all business. Books are actually self help books because it turns out that you need to give people some help when you've learned something, but they have to bring the self, and when they bring the self, it's a whole lot of work because they have to be willing to change grow, and so any great leader has gone through a ton of personal development so. Just the idea that that business books are personal development books just in and of itself was was a huge learning me, but I've also learned to find my own voice because when I first started speaking from the book. I was absolutely speaking like here's. How a Ted Speaker speaks read. I was like doing the whole. This is what making looks like. And when I realized, nobody wants to hat.

Jason Lemkin Clip: Why now is the best time to start a SaaS company
"A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to chat with former founder. Active venture capitalists and driving force behind. Sastre Jason Lincoln. Jason Zoster a community for Sassan cloud founders also organized the annual Sastre Conference in San Jose. That now attracts five figures. Were the folks each year. We spoke with Jason before the novel. Corona virus had evaded containment efforts affecting domestic markets after upending their counterparts abroad the current community since dacians forced Jason Deport. Sastre back a bit. But that doesn't mean that our chat with him any less timely in our forty five minute conversation we covered a ton of stuff from the potential for cloud slow down to how founders should use or not use venture debt to Jason's outlook on SAS consolidation. And even half asked. He's writing checks today. We're sharing one of our favorite clips here. The rest is over on techcrunch for excellence subscribers we're GONNA get into VC's lately that have been talking about the beginning of cloud. Slow down and I I. This is a very specific thing. What they mean is cloud is no longer an upstart phenomenon. Saas LONGER NASCENT. We've now seen a large percentage of the inner voice software world move over to SAS and nine means that the growth rate will descend as the actual aggregate basis larger and critically. They think that this might lead to income and squeezing out startups from certain spaces in the Saas market. That might have been attractive before. And this is from Alex over at scale venture partners recently and I thought it was interesting hypothesis. I don't see why wouldn't be correct. But I want to get your take on. I know your cloud optimist. You've always been a believer in my experience. So when you think about the maturing of this ass market does that leave less space for starts in as you look at the the overall landscape. Well let's see. I think there are two different points. I have two different perspectives. If you look at data from Gartner which is imperfect. But at least we haven't you. Can you can say that. Maybe thirty percent of old school on Prem type software has gone to SAS thirty percent so the pollen of user seventy percent left but the flipside is. That's a lot of market penetration right. It actually starts approach forty fifty percent. You should see a slowdown this secular trend into SAS. When when even when you started doing sas certainly when I started doing it was risky. It was quirky. It was weird. It was it disliked. It was it was not trust about two thousand sixteen through about Twenty Sixteen. Maybe even a little later at the first astronaut. Aaron Levy came one week after the box roadshow and asked him what the public markets. He said they're starting to learn about it. They're starting to get comfortable in two thousand fifteen. That's that's only twenty five years ago so we are so that thirty percent was probably eight percent right and so there is so there's so so there's a the good news is seventy percent left. The the risk is like you know there's only so much of this crazy growth and another thing happened. Which if you look at any Gartner or whatever this and this no one anticipated more of. It went we all knew there would be a substitution that of however you define it a trillion three and there's different metrics how much infrastructure include. We all knew that like the old the old on Prem Safra would go to sas we didn't realize that it would. It would take up thirty to forty percent more of those. It budget so they used to so we got an extra boost. People are spending more on software. No no one from scale no one from anybody realized we would spend more on business software because of SAS but has physical limits. It budgets are only be so much of global two thousand budget so these Amazing Trans created many many Saas companies. Doing a billionaire are billionaire are but but they're gonNA hit headwinds there. There's no question those headwinds that's different from whether that's going to box out startups. By the first half of the apotheosis there is going to be a slow down as we just forty fifty percents over the next five years. Yes there has to be and as we stop putting more and more of our fixed. It budget into SAS. These are two great trends and they will reach saturation. Got It okay. Now on certain point and and being boxed out using more skeptic I think this is the best time to start a startup time. Tell me why because all the SAS leaders are billion. Two BILLION COMING UP ON A billionaire. Zenda shop is the hub spots. They don't have taught they don't have time so if you're a billionaire and they're all growing like a weed growing thirty forty percents shop advice. Going fifty percents off. But they're all growing. They're all growing with a few exceptions. They're all growing north of twenty percent. All the leaders true. So let's imagine you're in a building air which now they're like twenty of these companies. How much do you have to add this year? Two hundred even three hundred. Maybe a lot you're thinking about non-organic time to compete with your little startup. That was just on tech crunch. You know ten years ago. Five Years Twenty fifteen. When when Aaron came from box Aaron would see a startup. Doing five millionaire. Get a little worried. I mean not literally worried but they. Hey this may disrupt me. Is that right Stewart. Butterfield doesn't have time he's GonNa read it. He's all over social media. He's an incredible founder but slack doesn't have time going to a billionaire to worry about someone that did five million has got to worry about. Microsoft has gotta worry big guy so that means you have a lot of air cover to get not just to a million before your competed with by maybe one hundred million owes underneath the. We'll just ignore you because they have to focus they have to hold it and adobe turning around now and everyone from fig on down is competing aggressively with them. But why because they're stupid of course not? They're very smart. Sap there they were busy. It's too small. It was too small right and there's too much growth in creative cloud creative cloud fuel the dobies text market cap growth. So they just. It's not that they don't watch what's happening with web flow and figment everyone. It's just too small until it's nine figures in revenue because figure has become materialists. I don't know how they're all super successful and it's not because anyone was dumb. It's just because you can't compete when they were small you just can't. You're too big. You're they've grown too quickly so it sounds like instead of this problem. It's actually there's there's more freedom because become now too busy to kind of mess with you get up to ten fifteen twenty million a are before they even begin the guns on your ship and because cloud got so big. These niches got big. Every niche. That used to be a millionaire NECC- now can be one hundred million Monday dot Com. Where you're talking about who we needed another project. Management for Non Tech folks that went from one hundred twenty million in four years. But that's a that's a piece like ten years ago. That would be a two million dollar business going to two hundred million so let's whole years one hundred times bigger. This little niche that Monday found and they're going to do a billionaire art. So let's talk about Vertical Saas. Jump ahead my question because this is what I wanted to get. Borough Ready It seems like you're thinking about Vertical Saas than isn't that this is GonNa be constricting idea but inside these these these takes on like the dentist industry or whatever and building software for those could be enormous because the niches have gotten larger to your points. I presume your a bowl on vertical sats. I've always been a ball. I would say even more simply. Look at any company to billionaire. Look at his desk job. Okay which is already two billion. That means they're gonNA keep growing. That means they're going to get to five or ten billion. My rough math is there's another billion vertical version of that so there's another billionaire could be more and that means there could be ten UNICORNS. One hundred million ten verticalised desks right And doesn't even have time to meet with them right. I Investment Company gorgeous which is like a vendetta ECOMMERCE. They're almost all on shop. Affi- it's very niche right. They're gonNA be growing three. X Ten million error. Is that tune it? People thought this company was to NICCI twelve. Apparently it's not nine. Three hundred percent honest has an offering it as a great product but all they do is make sure your fulfillment from instagram to shipping. That your contact center works magically. Which is good enough. Note is enough. It is enough to build a three hundred million Arab business. But it's just a niche today. That's so big because cloud is look how shoplifting. Today seventy million dollars in two thousand fifteen it was worth eight hundred million so these niches have grown astronomically and that means these vertical SAS things. We've like gorgeous and others. You turn around. And how could we do be a unicorn? Well it wasn't four or five years ago right when I met I met the founders only twice twenty fifteen. They were great but it wasn't clear it could be as big today but cloud. Gubbay point about Zen desk in there being room for ten unicorns underneath the desk at one hundred air. The implications vertical sights will still generally smaller companies than the original broader. Sass play so to me even smaller than salesforce. That's an example I don't Viva is a Pharma. Sierra Viva is the most successful verticals ass company so the CTO salesforce left salesforce a decade ago founded VIVA. It only raised three million dollars from emergence plus. It's now worth twenty billion dollars. Today he was also in my class. Like everyone did better than me in my bye-bye on the show but you should just get out. We should bring Peter Gassner. He's like a hundred times would have been me and vivas was twenty something billion and then how to products and he. He said look sales versus a great horizontal play I WanNa do Pharma and there. There is a legacy vendor in the space and it's big. It's a big space and all their deals are seven figure eight figure deals. But it's still. It's still a thirty billion dollar company and salesforce is one hundred fifty billion so I can't think of a vertical SAS that is bigger than its horizontal play but it may well it may well exist but thirty billion still outcomes. You're at three million dollar investment. Even if they are smaller by definition you know there's going to be enormous your general point about the client it's up it's becoming growing the high antigone larger piece of the overall. Everyone seems to be very hot. Verticals ask these days. So that's why I wanted to ask because they like it because the cloud got bigger and because competition is simpler the amount of domain expertise you have to do to build a viva is. It's rich compounds on itself and there aren't going to be twenty startups out of y Si. They're going to build that. But but and so there are these verticals because finally they realized they can be three hundred air business and then they can actually millionaire and they realized look it actually works. I can like I. Invested in in a SAS company just for environmental compliance called map history right. They disclosed their first. One million dollar deal okay. They have like no competition not in the whole space but in what they do they can have a few bumps and they can get through it. They have time they have times. There's not ten other players in the exact same thing. We've guys may disagree. But they had like one or two competitors and their original competitor was I think. Ms Dos based in offices. So you have time and so like this because you just. You're you're overwhelmed with the competition. You're overwhelmed with everyone. Wanted to take on snowflake and data dog and and there are many great apm companies. But it's exhausting. How do you know what's the next day doc?

"Up and I had that moment at like four thirty in the morning when I couldn't sleep on the plane and I was like shocked in the center seat in between you know the the CPA go back and I couldn't fall asleep and I opened my laptop and I just started writing and I was like it's four twenty eight. Am or maybe it's one thousand eight. Maybe seven twenty am. I have no idea all I know is that I am like in the space between the chaos. That was yesterday and the castle be tomorrow is where I am right now. And it's wonder hell it's like it is so amazing and humbling and special that anybody wants to spend even five minutes thinking about a thing that I created. That is such a wonderful feeling and also I have never been tired of my entire life. It's hell it's wonder health and I wrote this thing. Rise like and you know what happens in wonder wonder. How is that space in your psyche? Or the burden of potential walks in and unpacked backpacking. Like hey mother what you got for me. Are you gonNA live into this right like you've just seen that you're capable of more than you thought you could do? What are you going to do with it now? And I think there's Rubicon moment where the world opens up and you're like I could lean into this and I could do more with it or I could choose not to and let it pass by. And what do you do in that moment? I think this moment of wonder how I think that there are people who thrive in it and who have succeeded and I think there are people who drowned by it and I'm so fascinated by that moment and I want to interview you know. It doesn't well-known individuals and hear from them. What the themes are like. Why did they do it? And I think they're probably things like you learned to get over Imposter Syndrome by understanding that you could teach other people what you know like you could give kindness out and the more that you use your knowledge as currency the more that you actually love this moment or things like there will be people who you will have to drop. Who Don't like you because you've outgrown the small ideas that they had from right. I think there are these these hard moments you have to go through the next book. I want to write is going to be called. There's actually a really useful concept people always say. Do I know when to cut someone out of my life? There's some obvious people that this person still identity. Those are bad parents or bad siblings or whatever but there are other people in your life that are super negative or or not negative at all but insidiously keeping you small absolutely. I think there are people in your life who will actively who will knock you down into savings. And then they're people in your life who are like. Oh that's a really great shirt. It's a lot in the last time. Yeah Okay and then there are people who don't say anything at all. Never cheerlead you and I think those people are just as toxic as the other ones. Those are the WHO didn't corner. And they wait and they bide their time and they keep score and they're just like they don't show up when you're succeeding. They also don't show up when you're failing you need them. The most and I think those toxic vampires are the ones that look. We all have enough voices in her head. She'll say like Oh what do you do on your crazy? You'RE GONNA fail at least four right now. We all his voice is like we need to add onto them with people who don't have our best there. People always talk about the Jim. Rohn quote that you don't think the average of the five people you keep close to. I just a couple of weeks ago. Saw John Wooden you? The basketball coach said you will never out perform your inner circle and I thought that is such a good concept right so I keep around you and the ones who are keeping score and who don't have this abundance mentality the ones that are like kind of just sitting there waiting and biding their time and I think when he known to cut people out when they're not actively cheering for you all the time good or bad and if you don't want active leader for them that's interesting that's really. It goes both ways. Most people don't think about that. So what would be the first step someone after hearing this shit even takes in order to like one start applying this to figure out. What am I doing the right thing? That's the right thing for me or am I just delusional in thinking that my current career is good for me. Yeah so there's a couple of things the first is anyone who's like okay calling connection contribution control that sound sort of interesting. I don't really know where I sit. I have an assessment online. I think you have it in your show. It'll be the show right limitless assessment dot com. And it's a fairly intense quiz takes about twenty minutes. Anyone who's listening can tell them. Yeah I you know. It's funny because I I know that I'm supposed to make these quiz like super easy and really light. And you're supposed to feel all awesome about your day but I feel like anybody who's going to take time to actually invest in an idea and who wants to think about and wants to improve their life like tickets like it's your life taken seriously like you can afford twenty minutes like get a glass of wine or goblet of Oj or like whatever your drink of choice goblets house dungeons and dragons tournament orange juice. I played a mean game of Dungeons and dragon back in my day but I think I so go and take the quiz right the end of it. You get a beautiful radar chart and there's two different charts in one shows you. How much of each of the four you have in your life and the other shows you. How much of each of the four? You actually want to have in your life right to it shows where you're not incontinence where they don't overlap and then there's some actual specific practical tips but I would say if you're sitting here and you're like well. I'm not really sure maybe I have. It may be I would ask yourself who set that definition of success for you. Is it yours. Is it what you've always wanted to do? I mean when I was ten years old I wanted to be an astronaut right like I'm clearly not an astronaut today. But why was that set from you separate because that those are the careers that I saw those? Are the ones that were put in front of me? Those are the ones who like when they brought people into career day at school. Nobody brought in like software programmer. They brought him firemen. That was exciting. Sexy was interesting so I would ask yourself who set up my definition of success one of my pursuing and then why am I doing it right? Is this something I really want to go after and to really have that conversation with yourself about whether or not the things that you liked to do when you're not being paid to do that when you're on vacation do you gravitate towards the stuff that's actually part of your work or are you going so far away because you just dreading Sunday night you get like the case of depression you don't want to go in and then it's like well? Is it the work? Is that the environment. Is it the career that I hate that I have is at the workplace? That's just not really part of what's interesting to me. I don't like the people that are there. I don't feel like they're looking out for my best interests or is it me and have my goals changed. Since I've changed. I get asked a lot on interviews like what would you tell your twenty two year old self to terrible vice right so at one point in the book came out. I did like a hundred and I got. I got a little cranky on one of them. I was asking me really just wrote terrible questions here and so I said well. That's A. that's a terrible question. My twenty two year old self. Who's listening to a podcast? On my mobile device that was recorded over the Internet. Those things existed when I was twenty two so even if I knew I was when I was twenty two which none of us did the world around us has changed so much that we will have to change like we have to do different things we have to continue to evolve and to grow and to reevaluate and I think just not being afraid of reevaluating. Nothing afraid to say this was a path I was on. It's not the path I wanna be on anymore. I mean in twenty years of doing executive search the most interesting actually the only interesting people that I spoke to were the ones who took left turns in U-TURNS and right turns like the ones that just set the straight and narrow path incredibly boring. I never presented them as candidates. It's interesting I've got a friend in Toronto. She's listening to the show. I I was going to name her but maybe she doesn't want me to do that. She used to work at like some corporate job making a ton of money and she quit and she's like an actress now in Toronto and we email back and forth as I do with many show fans. I think she's happier now but she literally can't afford good food sometimes or food in general. She's like a local actress but she's happier now having left corporate and she thinks she went to Stanford or Harvard or something like that. I can't remember now but she wasn't exactly she was getting Goldman Sachs. She wasn't just like working. You know on the back end of whatever that's GonNa come out route. No matter how I say. In a really high-powered corporate job that would have resulted in a lot of money and everybody reluctant. She was in saint of do it and it may be. I think we take other people's opinions of us as definitional when they're not they're literally just opinions and the person who tells you that you're crazy because you want to do something about the time. They've gotten their coffee at starbucks and gone back in their car. They forgotten all about your station in sticks with us. As if it's like. Oh that person thinks I'm crazy right but like he wouldn't if that person gave you incredibly wonderful compliments about the show. Would you take them seriously? Maybe maybe not so. Why are you taking their concerns about you seriously? Also because they're really just about them so your friend. Who's the actress? This is where she is right now at this stage in her life and it may be that there's another stage where she's like. This doesn't work for me anymore. It worked then. It caused me happiness then now. I want to do something else and just if I could wave a magic one for all your listeners. I would just like release them of the burden and the stress of living into everybody else's idea of what they should be in who they should be and God forbid what they can't be and let them just define for themselves. What's going to make them happy? Laura.

"Said no forget about them but we we have this thing where God forbid. We say you know what I am. Happy this good. I like what I'm doing I'm enjoying it. I'm going to send a little time in the space and let things percolate and grow but it is. It's this I the Heisenberg principles. Great Way to think about it because we have this notion that it shouldn't be shouldn't be happy. You Know God forbid we are and then we are. Maybe we're settling inches further. And Yeah I think we can be happy. Now it's okay so we are taking input from people votes from people in our lives. It shouldn't have votes. It's kind of the way. Yeah we shouldn't take votes. We should stop taking votes from people in our lives. It shouldn't even voice right. Yes that so. That's really important to note and I don't want to gloss over it because it's really easy to put that on instagram name. And then send it off into the Internet. But it's true because we don't just do that when somebody says you should be a lawyer because you argue a lot. We do more subtle ways. It gets more insidious than that. That's the obvious example but there are other examples that are less right on the nose where we see like our brother or doing something while they're working in finance keeps bought a boat and then it's like okay. That's the rat race. I'm not GONNA do that. Maybe that's the adult version of. You should be a lawyer because it's really really clear but there are other things where people would say. You're being irresponsible. If you work from home and start your own company right now because you're gonNA make partner in five years or why would you leave the hospital job and go into private practice in a clinic in a poor area like what is wrong with you and then you start second guessing yourself? No one saying this to you. You're saying to yourself but it's based on a program that's been installed in your drive for a long time. I you know it's when my kids were in second grade. My oldest was in second grade. One of the parents got divorced and another parent got divorced then another parent got divorced and I remember saying my husband. That's like divorce contagion right because in the beginning was like the first person who got divorced. It's like woo-hoo on free and all of a sudden the unhappy parents were like. Oh that looks pretty good disintegrate. Because you know all the we we see the highlight reel. It's a weird thing. The highlight rumor like this decisions. Making them happy. The maybe decisions I've made have made me unhappy like their kids. Not Shoplifting. Right we can do it in won't shoplift everything will be fine right. No problem like nobody shows you the crystal ball from ten years ago when Tom's on crystal meth now divorced Causes Crystal Meth. That's what you should take. That'll take away from this thing. I am a train expert of Causes Crystal Meth Addiction. But we do. We do have this. It's everywhere I mean. It's an advertising. What size should you wear clothes that you wear? It's in the movies that we watch the voices that are elevated on television radio and the ones that aren't we see it everywhere and it's really difficult so you know. How do you figure out? How do you figure out what's actually going to make you happy? Should you leave the hospital job? You should you leave the corporate job and I tell a lot of people that would get it wrong because we think that we have to have purpose right big losses higher goal of purpose like as if the only jobs matter jobs of service and service only counts. If it's sacrifice look if you're literally not taking shirt off your back for some kids in Haiti like your job is just useless in your like mailing it in. We see these friends on instagram. But on facebook with like the pictures of them with a bunch of black and brown faces around them. If they're holier than now and the truth is it's just like fashion tourism on my God. Don't even get me started. Influencers doing that. There's a whole lot of people that have like their one or five photos from their trip to Africa and you see them on their feed once a month. Yeah 'cause they're in the rotation and I'm like do you even give you started? Yeah I did a whole Ted ex honest as you go. Yeah like this question of new. We see this big horrible thing that happens in the world and the first thing we say is how can I help right? And you're like oh how can I help? How can I be the center? How can be the solution? I'm a nail problem. Must be a hammer and then we send Teddy Bears to Newtown Connecticut or we send stuff Koalas to Australia right now. Our we send winter coats to hater mill to Japan or Australia is like you have any idea how flammable these stuffed Koalas by the way in Japan during a lot of dairies. And it's money that it costs to ship into store and to distribute and eventually to land it'll to landfill all of these things. Incinerate all these. Teddy bears could be better used for other things and so my whole Ted ex is about this idea that we have to stop asking this question. How can I help and ask the question? Which is what needs to happen. What needs to happen so that these things don't happen again. What needs to happen so that we put out. The fires needs to happen so that you know there's better buildings of earthquakes. What needs to happen so that we don't have these massive Shoot ups in schools. So you know. The whole thing is rail against people who are like check. I did it. I get the job short term comfort. And everything's wonderful now and I've got my picture on Instagram to prove it and it. Just it's crazy making today you're listening to the Jordan Harbinger. Show we'll be right back. This episode is sponsored in part by Felix Gray so we all use devices. Phones tablets computers. Tv's kindles they all have blue light. I'm not sure if people know what that is. I know a lot of you do but a lot of you don't blue. Light is essentially that strain of light. That comes through something. Like a screen tells your brain that it's daytime out and that can be a huge problem especially if you're using devices at night these huge. Led displays are blasting you with light and some of you watch TV in bed. Enter Felix Gray. If you're spending too much time in front of screens like we all pretty much are you can get headaches blurred vision. Dry Tired is trouble sleeping I tracked that with my ring. As there's all mentioned later on the show but these Felix Gray glasses they filter out. Ninety percent of blue light in the most damaging range eliminates ninety nine percent of glare through their lenses. And I love these things. I think they're super comfortable. They look stylish. They look like regular glasses. They don't have these sort of like weird hipster lenses or anything like that. It's Kinda like Sunscreen for your eyes which actually now that I say it loud doesn't sound comfortable at all but I promise you that are so. Try them risk free for thirty days. If you're screens aren't easier on the eyes you can send them back for a full refund. Jason Felix Gray glasses dot com slash Jordan for the absolute best quality. Blue light filtering glasses on.
"gassner" Discussed on The Jordan Harbinger Show
"Company. All right here we go with Laura gassner audio so I normally don't ever start a show this way but I happen to re never never a good sign by the says that you said your audience is primarily made up of millennials and Gen xers who want to improve their lives true. They are educated. They're affluent and they have choices true but why does somebody who's educated affluent and able to pivot? Listen to a show that engages on topics about improving their lives. And you say because with all the success. They aren't actually deeply happy and I'm like well. I'm not sure I agree about that. Because so people who are happy then conversely go. I don't need to improve myself because I'm deeply happy so I'm never gonNA work on myself. Yeah I think a lot of people think that they're really happy and they don't WanNa do anything and they're fine. There's that the thing is happiness is a temporary state. I agree with that and I can be happy if you give me chocolate cake right now. Right the woman who walked in with girl scout cookies. It looked pretty good. I I think we could take. We could take US definitely for sure but I think that you can be happy in a temporary state and then we hit these milestones right. Maybe it's a Asia has zero at the end of it for me. It's the fours and the nine and you have those like. Oh God I have another year and then it's going to be a big five or big zero. What's M I in the right place in doing the right thing? My married to the right person in my living in the White House. They'll have the right job. And those are those moments of self assessment. When you're like yeah. This is what I was supposed to be doing. I did all the right stuff. I went to the right schools. I got the job I got the right title and I created the life. That on paper looks really good right. It's supposed to make me happy. It's like a look good goal from the wall boards. Is it weird that I don't have those thoughts like I'm going? Oh forty he will finally take me seriously. Which by the way I think. That's that's the problem. Yeah because I I. When I was thirty I was like. Oh no one's going to be like you're not going to be a business owner now. Of course all these supposed- entrepreneurs are like literally eleven or nineteen or twenty two so knowing the old guy which is good but it hasn't really worked for like people taking me seriously. Yeah I think that's why you keep your hair short on the sides. I think it's great. It's it's out it's edgy. No it's also great. It is exposed. You don't care expose. Aw literally I went to. I went to get an emergency haircut yesterday because my signs are really growing out and it was like damn local yeah. I like to think you've got the haircut for me. You wanted to up your game defi- I barely remember even have this until about I was late so five minutes on you there. I think here's the thing I think that when we spend our lives pursuing success as identified by everybody else to a place where we're late on paper it looks perfect and then we're like why am. I not happy reading all these self help books. Why do I go on Instagram? Why do I look it? Names of girls and flower crown staring into the sunset. Because there's something that's not there and that's we had this Middle East crisis or a quarter each crisis or boomers aren't letting go of leadership because they're so afraid of over those cliff that they're free to be with you will over the health so I don't know you don't have those ideas you don't have those thoughts that's great. It's probably because you have at every turn your career mates Pacific decisions about things you wanted to do. I mean you're a podcast or days interviewing people but subjects. You find interesting so you have always pursued. Curiosity always pursued interest. You've never shied away from. Here's a subject. I don't know here's a topic. I don't know so that in general that's going to lead you into places where you're constantly growing and changing and learning. It's when people aren't and they're just pursuing the title or title job or the title of the car the title of the. House whatever the title may be. They're not stretching themselves. Not asking is is something. That's really interesting to me or is it just something that someone told me to pursue jitter you just. You can't insatiably hungry for someone else's goals and I think a lot of people are in a place where they've been handed somebody else's goals early on you've spent your career pursuing your own mining interesting thing so it's not surprising to me that okay you don't have the votes good. I was wondering about that because I mean I did end up a lawyer because you know one aunt who is like a gym teacher was like you should be a lawyer because you argue a lot. Which isn't real advice from somebody who should be taking advice from. I had a fourth grade teacher who told me his very argumentative. And then I'd be a good lawyer so I went to law school awesome. Yeah except I dropped out but you're ahead of the curve. Well we're maybe I just got worse grades my first year. That's also very possible. That doesn't weed out a lot. Well I smoked a lot of. We need that loss call. He joined the Clinton administration. So you know that worked out. Well so yeah and then all your weed was free. We will your book centers around many questions but one that I noticed was what if success and happiness for like two different things would have. Success didn't equal happiness. Saying this right. Yeah Yeah so. What do you mean by that? Then for the the listening audience. What does that mean? It means that you're going to spend your life trying to be successful right. We all want to be successful. But where do we get the idea of? What successes so right. You had an aunt who said you're argumentative. You should be a lawyer. I had a teacher who said your argument. If you should be a lawyer when I dropped out of law school and I joined the Clinton Campaign I ended up in the White House and when I was there I met and began to date. The man of my mother's dreams. Right Success Mary the Nice Jewish medical student. You Know Nice Guy Good family good teeth all the rest except there was no chemistry at all right. Every time I kiss him and be like I got to pick up the laundry. I gotta get dry cleaning like he was success on paper but he wasn't wasn't making happy to see you ever. Do you think he read the book. And its like God. I'm getting bring up that example. This is the first time I've seen it. You know but it's a good example. We've all been there right where you've got to fix you up with so and so for the life of you just not that exciting share can't get with it and I think I wish I knew his last name. I wish I could find him. I don't know what his last name was. I wonder whatever happened to him. He primate somebody else very happy but he wasn't GonNa make me happy. I think they're probably a lot of your listeners. Who were sitting in the corner office? We're driving the fancy car and we're like okay. This is what I was supposed to be doing right. This is success and I realize that I'm not really cut out to be a lawyer I wasn't cut out to work for somebody else. I'm I'M A serial entrepreneur my like being in control of my destiny. Even if it's scary as can be. I have no idea what's going to work out or not. I like to know that on placing a bet on myself. If I'M GONNA work my ass off it's going to be for my own interest in my own dreams and my own goals and I'm going to be the one who defines what quality is in the work that I do not somebody else and so I think this idea that there is. Success is based on this idea that somebody else's defining for us and we just can't pursue that and expect that that's going to be fulfilling to us. Individuals were all individual so if we are doing work and we feel stuck even though on paper we look like we should be crushing. You think that you know likelihood that's a problem how we've defined success or maybe we haven't bothered you define it. We just let other people to precisely that. I think that we let other people define it. Yeah there is a moment when you're fifteen sixteen seventeen years old where somebody says. Pick a path major. Pick a college right to job. Pick trade pick something and you're like yeah okay awesome and then you go and you do it. And then that six years later you've developed the frontal lobe part of your brain that helps you make good decisions. So how are we supposed to make these decisions that are going to affect the rest of our lives before we literally have the capacity? Goose curiously should have gone to college and I was thirty when I was twenty. Nine thousand nine absolutely absolutely. So you'd like you're picking a major based on what based on what your parents Lucia. Do Your aunt tells you should do based on what some random teacher tells. You should do how we're not even fully developed yet so you don't know what you're good you don't know what you love. So that's the first thing is that we don't define for ourselves and then the second thing is even if we do we don't give ourselves the grace to look back and say neal wanted to something else. Maybe I'm a different person or maybe I'm going to different season of my life right now. Yeah we get costs right like I can't do that. I went to law school. What are you talking about? It can't just quit everything and start a business. I didn't need to go to law school for that. I didn't even need college for that. And I went through that thought process and then it was like. Yeah but what am I gonNA do about that? Just keep working in the legal field or to start now can go back in time but I think a Lotta people go. I'm not wasting this education right. So you're going to say like okay. I'M NOT GONNA waste these three years of my life at the cost of the next sixty insane. I'm not going to have these go to waste. I'm going to double triple down right misery. I hate this. I'm GONNA keep doing exactly show them? Who's boss exactly? I mean that's so you've why would you do that? We all have this one big juicy life on this planet and there are so many interesting..
"gassner" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio
"Why are we playing captain kangaroo right here a cranky Boyer showing this talk radio well we're doing it in honor of rednecks Gassner is Jamie and nurse Jamie is a registered nurse and EMT as well as a father to four including six zero triple all my gosh he knows a thing or two or chat about getting kids into healthy routines especially when it comes true brushing their teeth the right way and Jamie created kangaroo oral care to help make brushing easier for both his patience and his own children and you know Jamie I have to say that as a little girl I watch my father brushes G. then you have to take out his partial and I said what's that Daddy and he's used to say if you're if you're not true to your team they'll be false teaching your I know five I'll tell your voice tell us a little bit about what you're what you're really trying to accomplish here because you know and I know that oral health is so important I mean it really is it's not just about brushing our teeth it's about taking care of our malice because our males hold the key the plaque in our mouth is an indication of the plaque in our body in in our heart and it's it's a very very important story and as a nurse I'm thrilled you're you're teaching this to kids yes of course will thank you so much for having me today well it's nice to be here but just go into a little bit you know with kids no kids like to have certain things that are fun for them they don't like shores doing to do things that you know that the game or get a private what about all of us right right we all we all want some prizes you know with with with with everything but you know it's pretty and specially especially conservatives that is definitely what we get our price but as an adult our price that we have no good clean teeth that we often go to the dentist for a star cavities that's all that's our pride so are we have to keep our money in our pockets whatever the prize but until the children it's very challenging with them because again if it's not fun for them not gonna do and something like fresh energy which is very important that you have mentioned and that could cause all different diseases in cavities and other come problems they have to do something that they want to you know that they'll make they'll abuse and then they would actually like so something like the kangaroo brush I made I do try to do an old one for them so wanted in towers and say listen this is mine when I finish in two or three in two or three months I get a new one I have the pre filled the truth you meant to supply of toothpaste with the two question there with a tongue scraper two men LED timer so everything in its its its own one for them too and that was the same thing yeah that was yeah yeah I was it was the main thing again even the LED lights you know my my trip was along the doctrine to contain the way off in the closet and difficult dance party with a toothbrush you know but you know well this call long and but again but it's it it's fun for them and they're using it that we get to try to encourage kids to to do a direct thirteenth with some type of incentives and disincentives more just that there isn't there to face you're not sharing toothpaste you know to the other people which also connect insecure one other child the cyclic thing so germs in general are our problems and we what we were trying to avoid whatever we can't allow them and wanted to do this type of habits brushing their teeth you know twice a day you know at least at least once but but that's really that's really the thing that we want went again so I you know as as a tool of the tricks for parents that make you listening what can the Jack if they do X. Y. and Z. in town comes under the brushing that's something and I would again on my kids are six years old triplets and a four year old so I I I'm dealing with them right now been dealing with them for the past few years I know I I know I I know I I always I would be an extra extra bottle the ordering of the plane because it's always it's a crazy I don't want kids one one way one gets on the other way so I'm I'm in constant motion with these children hi yes I'm sure you are yeah yeah I can only imagine for kids under six no I've heard this yeah so I was rushing it's it's it's it's it's it's in your challenge once you have to work with I foresee that the work with all close in age better young with the need to brush your teeth so it's it's very important it's not personal by the way you're going to the dentist with cavities and teeth be pulled and you want to eat as much as it's hard for the parents to do it you need to do it because it's a help your life in the end it is and again it might it might be it emerged in the TV is for the parents as well but you do not yet understand that you know that in the long run it will help you and I'll have your child as I always say you know to have you know have everything planned so you know it's it's it's no problem so for example of a mother father when they go before they go to work they have one drink their coffee but if you have kids in the brush their teeth so so if you're drinking your coffee was cleaning up your toothpaste that's all over your walls in your thinks we got a pic one so you don't want to do that so they were the king repressions ample everything is pre filled there's no master comes out nicely in exactly the right amounts you have to put it on I'm with the two minute timer that he can't cheat that's really the main thing so something that's fun for them that's and that's why I created this one from for them plans for my patients that are easy to hold that was that I was the main thing that you that you want to use my brush another brush something that's that's an anti to to them and they'll use so you guys don't have that issue absolutely tell me what it's been like at as a nurse Jamie first of all your concern about dental hygiene for kids as they get older is is is really the reason why you created these products and and just this website but tell us more importantly the germ aspect go back to that germ piece because that's really critical especially this time of the year so there are so many different things with terms and that Kerry that we don't we're not even aware of until we actually have a problem whether it be an adult or child and that's when the parent or the caretaker is really coming soon my Kidder we had this issue now on with this with with the disease gum disease I'm back here in the mouth which can actually affect the rest of the body also your brain your ears sinuses there's a lot of things that can affect that we're not aware about these microscopic things will crawl off and affect a person and again and if we don't see on a daily basis but the law and in the long run if we're having problems with our mouths and cheese and other issues it could be released all the way back to a person's mouth so I would my recommendation is don't wait until you are if it's a stick with something like that because you're gonna have a lot more issues if the dealer yeah I was in the service we don't see it every day that's fine but you don't know what these are building up so you are a little bit you have to be it yeah yeah yeah you have to be have to be careful not to be careful and you you also make them get into eating right and and physical activity and it's all combined it's all part of the the whole person approach that you want to really encourage and have is that we will have our entire lives sure so with our first of all just going back to the point you said before even as adults I'm not sure if one has no has good habits and as everyone know two minutes is it if you if you could set your watch into and all of your watch with a two minute walk away connect two minutes later you're gonna see that's right out very long time no one really is yes I it is a large absolutely that's a recommendation to source the Russian each quadrant fifteen seconds okay I mean it's a with instructions so if it's in there you're brushing that's the recommendation from American dental association's wall centers you want to follow that these these are these days these people are the experts when it comes to it and we follow the experts is good reason why it's two minutes not just any number you want to follow that as well as can to please also do we know that all state you not to put you know a whole bottle to face in your toothbrush he thought little content well plus by the way Jamie there's a warning sign on our troops pays so I'm telling everybody they should really make sure that they picked the right truth pays for your kids because there's a warning sign if you you know inhaled too much toothpaste call the poison control society so it's very fun though for this segment thank you so much give us the best website we're out of time nurse Jamie thank you so much or Kerr dot com thank.

"From addiction as someone in recovery since nineteen Ninety-three from drugs. Now Kahal I want those who may be sick and suffering in those who love people who are sick and suffering to know what that recovery is possible. And there are millions of us. It is made those things I was terrified of and she hasn't in Princess public speaking in network in seem petty when compared to the mission, and I don't even think twice about smiling for the camera meeting. New people are stepping up to a microphone. It's not about me, but about the mission. Yes. Well, first of all, congratulations and well done that is impressive and hard work. And thank you for the work, you're doing on behalf of so many people that are dealing with, with addiction issues. So I just want to first of all. Put that out there. I think that's great. I think that that is. I mean, that's it's perfect question to, to end on because she is in continents, what she does matches who she is in such a way that all the other stuff that scary doesn't feel scary people always ask me, how do I get so comfortable speaking on stage? And I'm like, I, I don't know. I just I love my mission. I love my my, my story. I love the message that I'm bringing out into the world, and I feel this burden of potential, that I have to get it right. Because when people listen to me, they change their career. They changed their lives. I mean, somebody tattoo limitless on their arm after reading I saw I say it's incredible. And so you get this, and you're like, well, if I'm getting messages from people saying, I read your book, I was at an event last night at a woman said, I'm halfway through your book, and I quit my job today. I was like you should read the other. But, you know, those kinds of things where you think if there is there is a the potential of this. Like, once you realize you have an idea and you have a skill set and you have a gift that has legs, you know, you need to work with it. And once you figure out that it has wings, you know, that if you don't actually bring it onto the world, you're stealing from the world, set goat, and always says, if you have a gift and you're not actively using it every day you're stealing from other people, and I believe that's right. I think we're all here to, you know, show up shut up do the work and uplift each other. So I love that. She's doing this work. And I and I think it's such a perfect definition of what it really is to be in alignment and flow to what you just said. So zig has a famous quote, if you have a product or service that, you know, can help somebody, it's your moral obligation to sell it I- door that because of so many people's, you know, that have something precious just as you said that they can offer people live, how you. You put it if they don't they're stealing it from them, and it's going back to the to the earlier store. Like if the financial adviser is not telling people why he's in this work, and he's selling this. He's selling who he is. He's actually stealing his gift that he can give to people by not actually showing a hundred percent of who he is in why he's in this work. Well, no better place to end in that Laura. Thanks for coming back with us. Thank you, again, the responses from your first interviews with us or incredible. I'm so great that you came back. Glad you came back to do this. It's like a free coaching session, everybody. Just got. So we'll sell it for nineteen ninety five and see what we can do. Thank you again.

I was expecting like the full thing I have so many notes, I was expecting. Okay. Well, I can certainly you more.

And what I do is I say that my superpower is at I'm able to see the greatness in people that they may be have never been able to see themselves or maybe never been able to believe themselves, and actually own it and act on it in a way that they can create extraordinary results, I am so invested in having this conversation because that is it just gives me chills to talk to someone who has that as their thing. So, so many different places to go. Interestingly enough. Michael port also has a similar thing about his when you open yourself for speaking, gauge -ment where he's like the shorter. The bio, the better and I was kinda hang onto that and it's. Acting to Klay as a similar thing when I go to networking events. I usually when people say, like what do you do? I try to make up something that's ridiculous so that they have to ask a follow up question. Now just kidding.

"It's about sixty or so questions and it walked people through the four CS of connection calling connection contribution in control and helps them to see how much of each they have and how much of each they want and that it overlays them in this beautiful little radar chart where you can see if you actually ARIN continents, and you can see where you're not. And then it gives you ideas of things that you can do which are big things slay the dragon save the Princess or side quests now tend the crops earn some money. So that you can be ready to go. When the time is right. That's awesome. That's something to the side quest. Yes. Well, it gives us the control back that even if it's not right now, I can still do something which I think is really important and that will get us feeling stronger. And better and often will give us the energy that we need to go sleigh. The big dragon. If we can just ten some crops and recognize that maybe I've got to eat. I may make some money. I before I go and do that big thing that we have we have we have people who say, oh, you can dream it. You can do it. And honestly, I think that's also terrible advice. I dream that I can be the Queen of England all day long. But, you know, nobody's bringing me tea and Crump it's at three pm, even I've asked doesn't seem to happen. But how do you get daddy get the identity and the confidence to dream those big things it's by having the competence to start doing the smaller thing. So nobody wakes up on dates as I'm going to run a marathon they wake up when they go. I'm going to run a mile today at once you run the mile, and then you run a five Kane a ten K and a half marathon, then sunny or like, you know, I have the confidence. Through this big thing because I have now shown over and over again, the competence of doing the smaller things, and so we can build that any side quests or a great way to start creating muscle memory around competence that gives us the confidence that we can be limitless awesome. That's fantastic. So folks, if you wanna get Laura's assessment limitless assessment that calms itchy talks about the four CS around contents calling connection contribution and control.

But then I started looking around, and I realized it's not working for everyone men or women, and I started feeling really guilty about all the advice. I'd given to people about will you just got to work, harder and hustle more. And you know, like hustle porn is terrible. And and then I realized the problem wasn't that. I was leaning in. It wasn't how I was a cheering success because it was really working for me. It was how I was defining success, and I was defining success by checking all those boxes and being the person I was supposed to be in every part of my life as opposed to the person I wanted to be in every part of my life. And so I love Dolly Parton because Dolly decided who she wanted to be. And she leaned the Helen to that in such incredible and energetic and successful way that for her. She she she achieved success, but she achieved because she define what was going to be for her. And then she went for that. Well, in that success, if we can figure out who we wanna be be didn't land purpose every single day, or at least as often as we can we're gonna we're gonna be successful as we could. But I'm closer with with a tough question because all the stuff to to me. Anyway, I feel very uplifted and very wonderful about this opportunity to to get that consonants. But you know, some days, I'm sure you to right. We don't feel so limitless. So how do we get that back when we kind of lost our groove? How do we get that back when it's been a couple of days, and we're like man, I'm just not feeling it. Well, this is where I have to defer to the brilliance of my sixteen year old son. So my sixteen year old son plays a lot of video games. And an I'm very I'm very good mom because I've let him play all these video games, which has given me a bit that I can talk about now from my book. So I can I can tell him that. Now, he's like see the video games were useful. You talk about this from stage all the time. So hoist a petard? He tells me that I should go on a side quest. You know, what aside questions? Oh, that sounds interesting. I'm not quite sure. What does it mean? Okay. So if you are hanging out, finishing washing the dishes after dinner, and you cannot wait to get on your video game and play your adventure video game with your friend. But your friend has not quite finished washing dishes after dinner with his family, you're sitting there, and you're stuck and you're like, I gotta save the Princess in the castle. But I can't go on the quest to save the Princess and the castle because my friend is still cleaning dishes because he's slow right? Like, he's gonna get faster. What can I do? In the meantime, well, I'm going to get to the capsule, and I need to slay the dragon, and I need to save the Princess I'm gonna need a sword. And I'm going to need a horse to get there. And in order to get that I'm gonna need some money in order to get the money. I'm gonna need some crops. So I can tend my crops. So the idea of a side quest is that if you want a place where either you are not mentally not emotionally, not physically. Ready to take that leap into do something big on a side quest you can tend your crops. So that you get the money. So that you can buy the source that you can have the horse of that you can slay the dragon, and you can save the Princess in the castle when you are ready to go. So I have created an assessment called limitless assessment dot com or at limitless assessment dot com where your listeners can go, and they can take a quiz..

"But yeah, when I when I read that I went and looked him up right away and military audiences are tough. I've talked to them as well. I get to talk to them about about communication sometimes. And they yeah, they're fun because they do sit like this. But that doesn't mean that you're not registering with them. That's just the utmost respect that. They can give you is to give you your attention because so much is so stupid that you're like, I'm not giving everybody my attention. But if they give you that you did a great job, Laura. I love it. I mean, I I am. As you know, I in my in my avocation, I do a lot of political fundraising. And I spent a lot of time that I might my litmus test is service. So if somebody served in AmeriCorps, peace corps, the military I on both sides of the aisle, actually, and that took me some time. But I figure if we're gonna get people on the other side of the aisle. I'd rather have people who have a predisposition to service towards country rather than service toward self and party. So I not get political on your show. But I do believe that I, you know, I dropped out of law school to join a political campaign because I believe in this idea of service, and you know, service in exchange for college tuition, domestic GI Bill. And so I I felt so honored to be there. And I I do a lot of homework and research prep before speeches, but I don't know that I've ever done as much as I had before this one because I felt like I need to get it. Right, right. A democracy is not free. And there's a price that has been paid. And I'm not paying it. And so I I believe. Leave wholeheartedly that I I needed to show up as my very best self because these people are. That's awesome. That's the best gift you can give. And that's fantastic. So thank you for that. As a as a price member. That's a big deal. So thank you for that for sure. So well, let's move on to some a little bit later here. And that's some towards the end of your book, you say that Dali Parton is your own personal life coach. And yet you've never matter. So what the heck is that? Because she does nine to five or what what's the deal there? Laura dally partners the greatest human on the planet. I- Dali Parton says that you should crowd who you are. And do it on purpose. And can you think of anyone else on earth who has figured out who she is? And does it on purpose or the Dolly Parton? I mean, I don't know what's in those those dresses or those nails or those wigs. I don't even know. But all I know is it's consonants. She is so confident with who she is. She says, you know, it takes a lot of money to look this cheap. Like, she just she knows who she is. And she is out there. And she. Makes no sense whatsoever. Like singing the aria from Carmen on the stage of the met, but she could work at nine to five till the end of days. She sinks, Joe Lee and brings a tear to your eye kief, the think about how many artists have covered that song right mean? It's just it's spectacular. But I love this idea of figuring out who we are. And then doing that leaning. So, you know, I read lean in when I came out, and I didn't like it. And I felt like I was supposed to like it. I felt like I was somehow betraying the sisterhood of women that I didn't like lean in. And so I didn't really talk about it that much, and then I started getting more and more annoyed at at at this idea. Like, I leaned into everything in my life. I leaned into building my business. I started my business when my son was six weeks old, right? I'm like, I'd I had an unplanned c section and still started my business. You're six weeks old. I could barely walk. And but because I wanted to I had to I needed to do everything I need to build my business built my family and built my community. And I was exhausted and the truth is that the leaning..

"But not all so why is it so important like right now, I think we have a lot of demographic shifts that are happening that are forcing this. So you've got baby boomers are retiring at recog- numbers ten million a day and. That number's not right that seems very high. But are they are they are record. Number retiring, you've got gen Xers who were caught in between young kids and older parents. And then you've got this millennial generation by twenty twenty five we'll make up seventy five percent of the workforce, and the millennial generation cares deeply about purpose in such a way that they are forcing conversations that are happening right now in the work that we've never had before. And because there are so many of them employers have to figure how to take it seriously. And so, you know, we're in this interesting in this interesting place where their conversations happening at every single level. And all of a sudden people wonder how to what to do. So it's it because employment is is is low. The workers of the ones that really have much more of a choice about where they're gonna work, and whether or not it matters to the conversations that are happening in the workforce have to reflect that so you have that. And then at the same time in two thousand sixteen we had a election in our country that really forced a conversation about what we stand for. And who we are. And whether our values matter, and I think we didn't see it in this year Super Bowl, but certainly in last year Super Bowl every single commercial was about was about ethos. Many saw commercials about women and access education and the environment and LGBTQ issues, and it suddenly was this moment where where boards realize that the weight increase shareholder value is to connect more with customers, and what they actually care about. Why they why they wanna wear a brand on their back. And so we see that happening both outside of work in inside of work in a way that I think has has has has never happened before. And then an environment of social media where people are really wearing the who they are it much. More or twenty four seven kind of way. Yeah. While I think those are those are really good points. Every time that we we get forced to question. I think we forced to answer. Right. So we asked us questions that we wrestle with the uncomfortable. -bility that maybe we don't know the answer is maybe the answer answers that we've been told maybe those need to be challenged. Maybe they maybe they are the same. Maybe you know, maybe my kindergarten teacher was right? Maybe not. Right. So I think that's that's really really interesting that we talk about that. But you know, if we have this big purpose, though, I mean, it doesn't that kind of overwhelm everything else. Like this. Josh Manson your book here. The guys the luckiest guy on earth that is dead for fifteen minutes. And yet it wasn't enough. And that's so interesting to me. I mean talk to us about that story, please. Because I think that's so instructive and yet like kind of depressing like my gosh this guy, and he's not what. So Josh Mance is a guy I actually met him because we were both speaking for American dream you at a at a an army base in Japan. And when I was when I was volunteering to go speak for this nonprofit that guy who's arranging it calls me up, and he's already so we're gonna have six people who were speaking army base. And it's all about how to help people transition out of the army and fine employment and we've got the COO Starbucks Japan. We've got a woman who runs a nonprofit for homeless women veterans..
