"Back to the gmc book review. Podcast i am speaking with return guest susan k hamilton today about her new paranormal. Romance the devil inside. Let's get back to that interview. Talk a little bit more about mara and about her. You think will resonate with readers. Sure i think for some. I think she'll appeal to different people for different things Some will appeal or connect with her ambition because she she certainly wants to be Number one in her field. And i think other people will really connect with the fact that she's she's really trying to figure out who she is and there's some pieces of her background that i won't go into less. I give anything away that she hasn't really shared with other people because she she doesn't think she's not sure what people will think if they they see the real her and i think that is something that a lot of us can relate to 'cause sometimes you know if you're at your regular job sometimes you don't feel like you can always express who you are 'cause you know maybe it's a more conservative or more liberal workplace and depending you know what what your beliefs and what your personality is. It might not not always fit in. So i think that will be a big connector for some people and then the idea that that you need to stand up for the people. You care about And she does definitely do that in a of different areas And i think that is something that will appeal to people as well. I definitely i wondered when i was writing. So i'm like. I'm really writing about a devil and they're not exactly the most likeable characters that you can come up. One side is like i need to find some humanity within her character so that people can relate to her. And not. Just like whoa. She's a terrible creature. Why would i even care what happens to her. So hopefully i've i've woven in enough of her personality that People will will start to to see her as a definite hero in the story. But i've noticed from the two books that we've talked about since you've been on the podcast that you tend to write a little more on the darker side of paranormal. Is there What do you think draws you to the to the darker aspects of the genre I think some of it is i. That's a very good question. I think some of it is that there's always there's dark and light and we do I mean certainly. We'll be the first one to say. I enjoy reading high fantasy where there's very distinct heroes and villains and things can be very black and white and there's a there's a certain appeal to that but i think generally speaking that in life there's a lot of grey areas and i always found it interesting. I heard it once. And i can't even probably attribute it to the correct person but the idea that every villain is the hero of their own story That just because we see the person as as evil we don't necessarily always see the full character and not knowing why they're doing things like that now certainly you can write evil character who's just a reprehensible human being and has no redeeming qualities and his flat out evil but i think in a lot of cases we've all done things he maybe done not as the the the the wrong things for the right reason and nobody's perfect so i i like to try and explore that and sometimes that tends to lean a little bit dark because you need to see what people might do wrong as well as well as what they do right right right and then you can explore the they're the darker aspects where people would think. Why would i want to like the character like you said and then You can explore. Well that's not the whole picture and here's pursley here. The good things as well about this about the character a person. yeah absolutely. i'm actually And i think we'll probably touch on this later on. But i'm working on a different manuscript right now. That's actually a departure for me. It's it's going to be women's fiction not a not an l. for fairy or or anything like that incite but there is a love triangle in it And one of the themes that touches on that idea of infidelity in such. That's a really hot topic for most people. Because they feel very strongly about it one way or the other and i really wanna try with my characters to to show that they are none of them are bad people but a couple of them make some really dumb decisions and it's yeah and that's just it's like somebody who is having a fair isn't necessarily doing it to be hurtful to another person they might be feeling some very deep and painful things themselves and and make this this decision and it might be a terrible decision. But they're not necessarily doing it out of malice that i'm trying to find a way to show these characters as empathetic but also is really truly human because there again there some a couple of we're making some dumb decisions that that have some serious repercussions in their life. So and it's a hard line to walk. i can imagine yeah Back to the devil inside. You mentioned the the mortal plane As the sort of corporate entity did you. Did you do any kind of world building for that entity. I did a little bit. Because i wanted to. Have it be similar to corporate office in oakland. And since i've worked in corporate america for for most of my professional career. I i sort of have been doing research my whole life. I guess in that respect But things like you know hell has an hr department And of course you know you skipped out. He sent down to hr and helen. You're probably going to get eaten by another deem as opposed to discipline So things like that. But i also tried to look at from. Maybe a little bit more metaphysical standpoint is. There's always there's heaven hell and there's people either talk about purgatory or the afterlife or something like that. I wanted to have this other area. So i almost drew it up like ven diagram with these. Two intersecting circles of heaven jalan in that middle section. I called it the null plane. Because it's it's it's nowhere and everywhere. And that's where i have. Some of the bureaucracy happened. That's where your soul goes at first to be. You know if you're if you're not being scooped up by a by a devil You go there to be processed and sent through and you're you're good and you're evil in your life is way. Then you get sent on your merry way. Whichever area you're going to end up in And have that the kind of that gray.

Almost always karma karma karma and to do get compensation that question gets asked by everybody and people just assume so what he walks out. Tell me he got paid right. State makes it up to them. Not no i mean illinois has to statute but you have to basically go through another fight called a certificate of innocence and after that is another fight for the federal level for federal civil rights violations.

"You said to some of the worst of the worst prisons. Yes stay bill. When job in allama area tried to play passed a game bang dice games and try to educate them got a grant to correspondent classes in law. Is it as bad as everyone thinks it. I'm a natural survivor ryan. So right now in the wintertime although locks are cut off the windows so the natives don't make knives however with that does the allows your cell to have enough ice on you can make a snow cone right. Off the bars and freezing temperatures mice roaches so me roaches. You put a potato chip bag. In the corner of your segregation sale and the roaches go unanswered. That can't get out and so you hear kind of like the scraping and that was the roach motel. Nfl's panopticon they actually it's a landmark. It's a landmark and of the two point two million people in prison. There are a lot of them. Don't have air conditioning. And i know a guy who died recently in texas prison. He told his brother that his brother said why. Don't you have any sodas. He loves soda. You can't keep sodas in your cell. He said i can't 'cause they explode because it's too hot like what the fuck even is that while isis. The commodity might get one cup of ice in the morning cup of ice at night. I says a commodity so you will deal with the elements and Right around april fifteenth. They will turn off the every year like clockwork despite the elements right in chicago. You got some elements here. God knows so. And i'm always fascinated in the maze by people like yourself who managed to go through this ordeal as innocent person and the extra psychological damage that must do to a person who's undergoing extreme physical hardships And the loneliness and all the rest of it. The violence in the prison. We talked about at the terrible food. It's sarah said the cold heat and then you are there. You know innocent forever innocent. I was done all my appeals. Were done. I was done in court over with that. Being said you found this something. This inner strength perseverance. Whatever you have you describe it and malegaon you give up but first of all you have every reason to give up motion after motion after motion denied the and neither one. Yes needed once one. Yes and how you've got to. That is a really credible story. So you're denied denied denied now as i understand it the law in illinois at the time allowed for post conviction testing fingerprints. Dna but not ballistics exactly so in two thousand i s for the testing obscene an article in a trivial about illinois state. Police now starts using the either system intrigue a ballistic identification system which uses algorithms connect ballistics to crime scene. So i was like that can free me. I knew it could free me. It was it was just that simple and unfortunately because law didn't allow for it in two thousand two thousand one. Why for the courts was like no the law would have to be omitted. The law would be a changed in order to grant me the gun testing which would potentially exonerate me. That was two thousand one right so you were stuck on a technicality right. 'cause you knew that you had this evidence because your lawyer had tested we go back to that right. And that's your lawyer had had the sense to go and get independent lab independent lab. This lab only testified for defendants four times. So now a lot of people would say okay here. You are in the segregation unit of one of the worst prisons in america. Not a great education. You have a law degree. You didn't have science. Degree would seem to be hopeless but somehow or other you manage to actually get. The law changed from inside your cell so so long. Long story short. It's two thousand six child hall. There's a award. And i would say southern gentleman. Maybe impasse life yet slave ships. He sees my prayer beads. And he says are you allowed to have him sir and meet being sarcastic basta diane my book up in say yes sir. So he looks at me says. Are you sure you're allowed to have on your attitude. He sees the energy company. I say sir yes sir. And so he gets a little closer in my personal space in the tar. Man's out with the gun. It's about two hundred inmates and he says i don't like your attitude said we don't like your attitude either. Surgery brought much misery and suffering to the land as a result went straight to segregation six months in some of the worst conditions the united states but while they are headed tiffany and i wrote an article that became state law. And what is that law. Yeah exactly here. We go so. The law is seven twenty. Five five one. Six dash three as october. Twenty seven. two thousand seven signed by governor blagojevich. I should probably send him some money. For compensation he actually. He helped me. No really he helped me. I just slips my mind sometimes but he helped me. He really did. He signed my idea to law. If you remember back in two thousand nine illinois governor rod Goya vich was indicted on corruption charges that included the alleged solicitation of personal and exchange for barack obama's recently vacated. Us senate seat was. I remember that well. It was bizarre episode. Anyway he was later guilty of seventeen. Different charges including wire fraud attempted extortion conspiracy to solicit bribes and sentenced to fourteen years behind bars but before he left office he did sign patrick's amendment into law. Now back to the law. Bill ryan worked for the department of children and family services as an advocate for long-term offenders he had a newsletter that was circulated throughout prisons as well as two families of inmates to law professors in colleges and even legislators and politicians mr ryan published the article. The patrick wrote about amending the law to include post conviction ballistics testing through the integrated ballistics identification system. Also known as ibis intern illinois state representative arthur turner senior sponsored the legislation. Imagine the letters that come from prison and so bill ryan are a long term advocate explained to me and michelle says patrick you just don't get it. I had full of letters a reach down and grab one letter. Open it up. You asked me to give it to the senators. And i did so. It's completely biodegrade. The creator completely fortuitous. Anomalous whatever you think. It was all just lock on all right. No i'm even the stars lined up words genetic combinator. It's all the bub. It's it's a. It's a combination of everything and so ultimately the log exchanged. They opened a jail doors. Let you our no. Never not evacuate. Its so the longest chains illinois becomes the first state in the country to have this law that in order to grant me the gun testing so the longest change in general black which were in the shadow of my attorneys over there on clark street and spent four point. Five million dollars over ten years to get me exonerate. Well first of all. Let's not leave out there a lot of heroes in your story right a lot. None bigger than you by the way. Not and two of them are in the room. I want to recognize steve drizzle or i rider from the.

"Along with the narrative and took a back the narrative of her terrorize spoon fed and patently. False confession and her grand jury testimony was she and patrick were having financial trouble and on the night of the murder. They were driving around in search of a house to rob when patrick told her to stop on silent road hopped out of the car. Put on a blue ski mask told her to keep the engine running and ran off toward the apartment buildings then a few minutes later she heard two gunshots and patrick returns to the car carrying a taurus. Nine millimeter hours before being threatened with a life separated from her children and regurgitating this narrative for her false confession. Samantha's apartment was being searched by the police. Were photos were actually staged. Were staged photos of her. Taurus nine millimeter being stored in plain sight for ease of use. The whole gun situation as far as like pitchers where the gun was like. I had children my house. I'm not gonna have a gun. Ten-year-old get it. It just wasn't a whole narrative hot was put together with so far. It's just crazy but early on you had lawyer who actually made one move. One move changed for your light. Yes oh every defendant. I think in the course of america. Says i didn't do it. I had a young lawyer who was beginning his career. And was i death penalty case and then i had the older lawyer who just letting moutier so the young lawyer in his pushback right. You know you didn't do it well. We'll test the gone really. You can do that yes please. Test gun test. That's how it all started. That's what got me here. Ballistic testing is very important to this story. Ballistics is the study of the dynamics of projectiles or of the internal action of firearms can tell us what type of firearm was used where it was fired from. How many shots were fired. And most importantly for this case it can be used to identify a firearm by the markings left on bullets and bullet-casings after firing so after both states crime lab and the defense is independent lab. Test-fire crabtree's nine millimeter and compare the bullets and casings from both test-firing and the murder. The prosecution's expert testified that the gun used in the murder was crabtree torres. Nine millimeter and this direct quote to the exclusion of all others powerful testimony. False powerful while the defense's expert testified that the murder weapon was likely tourists nine millimeter but not crabtree's however the expert hired by the defense could not conclusively exclude the gun. So the about this you. Now have the state testifying with absolute certainty and the defense inconclusive. In their exclusion of patrick this along with marvin wyndhams incentivize testimony and samantha crabtree's initial false confession brings us to where we know. This part of the story tragically went however the ballistics testing becomes crucial again. Many years down the road when the jury went out now seeing a bunch of dirty tricks. You've been around the system. You grew up as you said in the streets so you know what can happen. You're a young black man at this point in the clutches of a system that is designed to chew you up and spit you out. I the lupe called the plan convalescence. Ask out that That being said when the jury went out did you have hope. Oh yeah i knew. I didn't do it. I know it's going home. And so when they return a guilty verdict. I i really don't even remember how i got back to sell. Because i guess the blood drained off my body or something just went body numb and i couldn't believe it i just i couldn't believe it if i don't think anybody here can possibly gender understand that somebody else here has been through what you've been through nine. Now you're facing the death penalty the yes. So you come back for sentencing. The judge says because of the inconsistencies of the evidence of knock on. Give you the death penalty however we'll give you natural life a minister and this is a time where people were actually picketing for megan. New trial was very strange. Very strange correlation. What was going on indexes per se was. We're not gonna kill you quickly but we are going to kill you slowly right. I'm having mercy on because that's cbs in evidence. But you still go buddy. It was a cry courtroom when he announced at my daughters were there. It was something else.

She always started out of reach of her small children. While patrick fled on foot and cops raided the apartment they brought samantha in for some aggressive interrogation. And i'm putting that mildly interrogated my girlfriend for like twelve hours. She was pregnant. You know just basically force fed narrative to her while disregarding glaring contradictions and so your girlfriend was pregnant. Mother of two or three never been in trouble. Three kids three shovel impregnated so she's a target for twelve hours in the police. Tell her if she doesn't tell them exactly what they want to hear. She won't see children's till she's forty. So here's how this unraveled. So they take from directly from the interrogation room to a grand jury where they make her repeat the story right now. She's under oath right on get under substantial evidence in later so she tells them what they wanna hear. A girlfriend to her everlasting.

"For being with us here today. And we're so excited to hear your answer on this month asked mark anything so let's get started so our first question is about endometriosis. What is it what can cause it. And if there is a woman that suffering from this What can be done to help her. Most vexing problem is often undiagnosed for years. Sometimes decades for women who suffer from big symptoms like menstrual cramps irregular periods of very very painful people people on all kinds of horrible stuff and essentially. It's it's something that has been thought to be a hormonal condition but it turns out it's probably more likely auto immune condition and essentially what happens. Is that women will have portions of their endometrial lining none of this lining of the uterus. Move into places it should be so they can get through tubes and into the abdominal cavity and deposit on the colon on the small testings on the bladder and kidneys on the wall of you demand every time you have a period. It's like you're bleeding into your abdomen. Which is the worst and most people bank possibly imagine and it makes me miserable also caused infertility in. It's not a fun condition It's really problem for many many women. So the question is what is costs We'll get to that in a minute. But mitchell focal medicine perspective. The approach is quite different than a convention approaching conventional medicine repression cinci to create Treatment that shuts off your period. Which is something that women do anyway. Given this crazy way that we practice medicine now that almost pursley given the pill the stocks periods of that. But i think that in neo can be very helpful. The the the hormonal programs are often very tense. They might Premature menopause sometimes really heavy new drugs. They can use it gets really bad. It's often diagnosed Drew surgical approach on. You'd have to leprosy topic exam so you go through the button. You look inside of the little microscope and see all the everywhere is really the most effective way to see what's really going on. It's hard to pick it up. Otherwise and making cauterize her. Burn up those lesions but it's like mopping the floor while the sinks overflying little just happen again and it can try temporary relief but it said about the vicious cycle in so we're learning about From from a functional perspective terminal science is telling us now this maybe autoimmune nature then the question is what what do. We do for autoimmune disease. How do we regulate those things and really when you think about immunities from a functional medicine perspectives. Really five main causes a combined with new genetics. Your predispositions but it's toxins and in terms of hormonal issues. Toxins acute player Both heavy metal toxins as well as the petrochemical toxins which are calm persistent pollutants Or estrogens and they're very very hormone stimulators or hormone disruptors. That can be found in pretty much everything in our society all the plastics and cosmetics. Sunblock name it. It's in their makeup and that's really why work the working group to help educate people about the sources of these compounds in their food in their water in their kaz medics in their house. Oh clean products that you can really reduce your exposure. So that's really important Second there may be gut issues. Well we keep god through tentatively dese be bounces in the in the gut.

Those gaps can bother you and can take you away from the store that was one situation where you know he ends up. We see him hanging. Of course the other cop falls and hits the ground dead and then we see jimmy. That's had you know he's got some sort of brace around his body and into cain. What do you think happened. I mean what do you think happened in that situation. Did he fall did he is. I should hasty fell but in a much better way than the cop did this. Jimmy didn't fall on his face and it showed a cop. Did it showed from the cops perspective. Now using the vertigo. This was tremendous fall. Like your feet like you wouldn't survive this fall You know that was the only thing that kind of like You know. I kind of my instinct. Says he would be dead if he did that. But looking back from a filmmakers perspective hitchcock setup moments in this film like this to let you create conversation which he liked to refer to as the ice box effect. So they're sat in there in pieces like you know herbie and all of a sudden. She's nude in the bed. The fall things like that were set in there and he wanted to have conversations around what was called the icebox because people would go to the refrigerator that time and icebox and they would have conversations talking about widely cooler conversation right cooler conversations spots and that was at that time fifty seven so honeymooners was the first time ever heard talk. Exactly it's going over to the icebox two feet away from me. Apartment's tiny. so what do you guys think about those kind of you know gaps. I mean do. Did they bother you in the story or did you kind of just ride with them and go with it. I kind of feel like you have to go with them. I mean the story should be the it's not a story about how he fell or whatever it is kind of. Here's the story if you wanna talk about a gap. It's the end of the movie. Is the gap because she takes a brody off of the tower because she's scared of nuns and they not jimmy stewart looks over the edge like it reminded me of that scene in ravenous of Robert carlyle is going after guy.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelley. And I'm Ari Shapiro stunning development is an overused cliche. But in this instance, the phrase fits it happened today in the trial of navy seal Edward Gallagher chief Gallagher's accused of warcrimes including killing teenage ISIS captive today. A fellow seal testified, that he not Gallagher is the one who killed the young man and warning. Some of the details of that killing are disturbing to hear reporters. Steve Walsh of member station. K PBS has been covering the trial in San Diego, and he joins us welcome. Hi ari. So you're in the courtroom today, tell us what happened sounds like it was just a shocking unexpected turn of events. No, it was completely unexpected. It was like something out of a Hollywood movie. You don't expect someone to declare that they're the real killer, especially when that person was a witness for the prosecution exactly their witness for the prosecution. So Corey Scott was a medic. He was there on the scene in Iraq with Gallagher. He was beside him and. He testified much like prosecutors expected him to testify that Gallagher took a knife plunge into the neck of this wounded Iraqi fighter that they were providing medical care to it was sort of blow that was not designed for any sort of medical treatment, but to injure the Iraqi fighter, and it was all following the script and then Corey Scott says in cross examination by the defense that it was not Gallagher that killed him that it was. In fact, Corey Scott who killed him by closing off, breathing to for the wounded vita. And then he slowly watched him die. That was Scott had presumably gone through positions. How does not come out earlier? Well, that's what the defense was saying. They're saying it's sloppiness on the part of naval investigators and prosecutors, obviously prosecutors were incredibly upset by this turn of events and they pointed out on the stand that he had spoken to prosecutors several time, they'd ask him to go step by step. In this, and that he had never mentioned closing off the airway. And he'd never said that in any of his testimony to naval investigators either, and he now has unity so he won't be prosecuted for this. Is that right in the whole build up to the case, one of the twists and turns that there are seven seals that have been granted immunity to testify in this case, Corey Scott is one of those he can still be prosecuted for perjury. But he cannot be prosecuted for any statements that he makes, including apparently admitted to killing and what does this mean for Gallagher, the man on trial, who's accused of this killing, as you can imagine during the first break after this testimony Gallagher was out in the hallway with his family and children. They were jubilant. They see this is a real turning point in this case, though, he's not only charged with killing a teenage ISIS fighter. He's also charged with shooting at an elderly man and young woman with his sniper rifle on the other side of prosecutors are still moving ahead with their. Case. There were calling other seals from Gallagher's, tune to testify in this case as well. So they're moving ahead. They were already making the case on the stand, that, Corey Scott is not telling the truth. And the reason why he's never said that he killed anyone is because he's a friend of Gallagher's he was asked, what do you think of chief gallery said that he liked them? He had no problem with chief Gallagher, and that he didn't want him to go away for the rest of his life. That is reporter Steve Walsh on a dramatic day in court in San Diego. Thank you very much. Thank you. This month marks the fiftieth anniversary of stonewall, the uprising New York far, that gave rise to the movement of four LGBTQ civil rights. But the success of that movement, brought a powerful backlash from the modern religious rate and Pursley fato reports that for decades, the two sides have been counter activists in a culture. That continues today the police rate and protests around the stonewall in June of nineteen sixty-nine were a seminal moment movements need cons movements need martyrs movements need heroes. That's Lillian fadiman and LGBTQ historian, stonewall. She says, is that I con it's not though the riots themselves that account for the progress that we've made in recent years, it's what followed the riots groups began to organize to demand rights, eventually allies were on our side and help us fight for the battle for rights. Key points, the formation of the gay Liberation Front, the first pride parades in several cities, year later to commemorate the uprising and at first Bateman says the religious right ignored these events as blips, but then as the gay movement succeeded, and as various cities began to pass gay rights ordinances that woke the religious right up to begin to push back the real beginning, I think of the culture wars in earnest was in nineteen seventy seven that's when Anita Bryant pop singer and pageant, Queen best known at the time as the face of Florida orange juice. Began a public campaign to fight an ordinance that passed in Miami Dade County to protect gay, lesbian bisexual people from housing and employment. Discrimination, it captured the national media's attention extremely religious. She says she feels that God has single around to spearhead of crusade to prevent admitted homosexuals from teaching her children to one voters chose to repeal the ordinance her celebrity because of her efforts on a national scale, this became a national conversation in a way that it hadn't necessarily been that's Johnson historian at ball state university in Indiana her book. This is our message profiles female leaders in the modern religious right, Brian. She says became an icon in the fight against gay, lesbian bisexual rights traveling across the country to oppose similar ordinances as we trace this history from seventies to the present. We see very much not. Two separate movements that are each building their own agendas. But to movements that are building their agendas, and they're talking points in relation to inoperational to one another from the anti-discrimination ordinances the fight for marriage equality to today's battles over transgender people's rights to use the bathroom of their choice or continue to serve in the military each movement strategizing to counter the other, they are perfect enemies journalist Crispell, that's the title of the book he co authored on the religious, right? And the G Q movement. And in the last couple of decades, what we saw was really an amazing string of victories by the LGBTQ rights movement.

But it's when I'm walking out the door. You can do gut. Check did I cash today or did I give my best effort in? Did I provide value to my clients compete more calls is there anything that left? Undone was in a meeting, right? Didn't either provide some value or, you know, move ins forward when I was thinking, my colleagues was I positive upward incur ING. If we had a problem with the project will return to solve a problem or cast. It's all those types of things that you can just go through and bring and at the end of the day at leisure with emotional feeling of success or failure success writing better will end that's what I was gonna ask right is. So is that for you does that tend to be sort of congratulatory, celebrate, Tori conversation? Is it a coaching a self coaching conversation where you're thinking, you know, what I need to work on x y or is it a self deprecating conversation. God, dammit, Craig would you didn't do this. I think mostly itself coaching conversation. But there are times where I've screwed up or not giving my best effort in your own that you gotta make sure you don't do a day after day routes three six months from now, you're not gonna be. Pipeline's dried up, and you're not able to be successful. Very cool. So creek I'd like to ask and just get some perspective. Is there something you believe that the average sales rep would think as crazy so relational selling doesn't work anymore may have long time ago? But not in today's marketplace, if you haven't read challenger sale in if you haven't read the challenge of customer, that's something I recommend reading because this is research on that topic. And you know, there's I can name people have been all my sales teams or that I've been Pursley with that relationship selling was their approach in. If I look at them today where they are in their careers today. You will see that they are not successful could be an una relational person. We want to build a relationship, but I do it in a consultative solution selling mode. In. So you're doing relationship bringing out it's not, you know, you're not bringing baseball you're not just taking him out to dinner. In fact, we were out on at a new customer, large enterprise customer in meeting with our client, and their internal IT group in Israel going around doing introductions, the head of the VP of IT group said so let me get the street. This person's the lead designer this person's approach manager in this guy. Here's the guy that go to go to get tickets to game in the fact that he looked that way said that was offensive but in the creative industry, right? Do you think of marketing, agencies, etc? That's what the rule of that account director have been reducing in. That's not. However, you what we do what I do. And so, you know, it's important to media change that perception he's not the personal sold to. He he doesn't know at all what he was kinda kept characterizing. That is that's what salesperson dozen space met you answered. Most of the question. I wanted to ask right, which is is sort of drawing this distinction because I think it's dangerous. Right. I think that relationships still matter read it it's not like they're not out of the equation. And and if you read you really have to read the whole of challenge, I think challenges really really dangerous if you only read like the first quarter of the first third and you stop, right. You have to read the whole thing and understand that these things all come into play. But if I were to recapitalize what you said, and I would agree with this is that it's the wine and dine style of relationship. If it's only about I'm just gonna try and make you feel good, and there's no substance to that relationship. And there's no value to that relationship. That is the wrong kind of relationship sales. I agree. Cool. Now, what about the foot side? What does the average sales rep believe that you think is crazy? I think you know, sometimes success can be your failure. Right. So if you're if you get into your your role. Quick success right out the gate, and it may have been a blue bird may have been just some circumstance that allows you to win really big deal. You read your own headlines. You could kinda believe that what you're doing is gonna pay off in the find is it will short term. But then you'll see a big dip unknown the active become it goes back up again. And I think the average person may not believe is being consistent over time is going to help you create excess more so them having bursts big effort when I first got into the US design industry Lincoln connections ahead about seven hundred, but they were all in t side on on from telecommunications, data networking perspective. So I really had to build a whole new network inside set a goal of making new connections day pretty modest little in that also reaching out folks just doing one on one just doing the activity in that first. Didn't seem like that was gonna pay off because I wasn't seeing uptick in opportunities. But within about thirty sixty days conversation started farting in introductions to other people started sparking and all that in those early conversations allowed news practice my pitch in practice. My questioning they'll in stumble over my words cetera in so, you know, I think sometimes with the nature of sun were everyone's provided script, and they know the playbook and all these things or opponents of being set for you, whatever it is just, you know, putting in the consistent work to learn do is gonna pay off in the long term
