From Public Defender To Stanley Cup Champion
"So joe for those who might not follow the nhl super closely. Can you just give us a sense of what jon cooper has accomplished during his as a coach in the nhl. Definitely jon cooper is the longest tenured coach shell. He's on an eight th anniversary of his hiring on this week. The winningest coach in franchise history for the lightning. And i think he's highly regarded as one of the better coaches in the league and probably a candidate coach team. Canada at the next olympics are positions and olympics for the trump player so deadly highly regarded coach but up until this past season. He hasn't won the big one and that was kind of the big question surrounding it. And how would you describe his personality. Well he's a players go. She's a really fun personality. Like you quotes wedding crashers. Upper seventy six. No excuses public champion. You uses a champion. The only person you have to answer to when you go home at night is really yourself. The national media loves him because he is a great world this charismatic. You're going to get knocked down. There's no question people are going to push down. Because ultimately they want to see it fail if you think maybe teams on trips to like field of dreams when he was in earlier years coaching. He's all about the different sides and binding guys together on the ice and that if you get is connected as a group and the for each other and very process over outcome kind of guy and so you definitely has that charisma that makes them unique. I think the players like that. We'll show you recently. Wrote about how jon cooper has followed perhaps the most unconventional path of any stanley cup winning coach. So take us back to the late. Nineteen ninety s. What was john. Cooper's lifelike at that time he was living in a condo east lansing area couple remains but he was just trying to figure out where you wanted to be in his life. What he wanted to do for work. He was good ball. Charismatic lawyer but his heart wasn't in it always always wondering when is the fulfillment. When are you going to sit there and wake up every day and say. I can't wait to go do what i'm gonna do. He was defender district court in lansing michigan about a thousand dollars a month. You know we're going for indigent clients. He was working on. du is having divorces. You've got a two person law. Office him in a paralegal. He's still didn't know i guess. Were taken at that point. And you got in touch with the judge. Who worked with jon cooper back. Then what did he say about cooper skills in the courtroom and you just notice and how clients clients listen to prosecutors respected him i think is the kind of ability that transcends coaching the ability to persuade players to adopt your system or just believe the approach. So you know. He's he's a good salesman. He always says convincing players. Convincing a jury and i don't think he knew then that it would be kind of the key to him. Maybe starting coaching career. So how did jon cooper go from being this lowly paid lawyer and a former lacrosse player. Who had only played a year of club hockey in college to being high school hockey coach. Well the run in his son playful lansing catholic high school and they needed a coach and so he knew of john skills on the ice and new of his charisma and then he is asked to one day in the building. I saw the coach. would you be interested. He looks at me and goes. Dc the stack of resumes. I have he says. I'll tell you one thing you coach kids high school hockey team and i will take your resume from here. We put it here. Just this exactly. That was his first kind of foray into coaching hockey. Was nine thousand nine hundred nine hundred thousand lansing catholic cougars hockey team and that was seventeen. You actually talked to some of the players on that lansing catholic team. What did they tell you about jon. Cooper the high school coach. I think what's interesting knees. They remember the first meeting in the cafeteria where he's using himself to like twenty kids and parents and those us have just nervous as they were and are waiting to hear whereas the hockey background. Who did he coach before. Because one of the red wings was he part of this huge talk about law school in wall street and this guy another guys were in the nhl players. Even highly college players inducted himself would be anywhere high in coaching world. A reflection of guys play together. I think they'll be the first ones to tell you. None of them really on the track to make the national hockey league but they were such a joy to be around the competed their butts off just line. Who an awkward gesture. The of funny kid and team talked about like there was a hill just a mile from the school that the workouts outside the big hill. The he must've just saw he was driving around and he made us run up this hill with do bear calls and stuff. That is the source. I've ever been my life like. I could not long like off chris. Monrovia now works the red wings. Illitch family talked about how they had this practice where they had no on the ice and they're doing push ups and sit ups and kristin ross. Who served in the military students in afghanistan he goes. I went through the army for seven years. And i went through a lot of work out a lot of hellish days. Afghans dead. That's one of those days that i think back much. It's not as bad as back. And what else did you learn about his coaching philosophy back. Then you know like what were the things that were important to him that he really emphasized to the team. Making guys feel connected or part of it no matter if you were the best player on this team or like the thirteenth forward and i think jeff swan is appropriate examples. Like i wasn't the most natural coordinated like county out now who put me not aligned with the two players. Mike sack out with the most gifted athlete. That are high school in you.

The History Of The Cola Wars
"In the late eighteen eighties. Pharmacist named john doc. Pemberton decided to get rich selling homemade cures and elixirs. We should note in spite of his nickname. Doc wasn't a traditional doctor. He hadn't trained in mainstream medical practice instead advocating for alternative treatments and remedies and he wasn't alone in his passions late nineteenth century doctors and patients. We're wild about drugs. And even pharmacists could get rich quick selling inert or sometimes dangerous products as cure all remedies before pemberton's time even something as benign as ketchup was marketed. As a treatment for diarrhea jaundice and rheumatism bayer pharmaceuticals pedaled heroin as a cough suppressant and a safer alternative to morphine and literal snake. Oil salesman claimed that rattlesnakes fluids could cure their gullible customers. It's no wonder that. Pemberton figured he could brew his own dubious remedy in make a fortune. His first hit product was called. French wine coca. It contains several ingredients that would raise eyebrows today but they were considered healthy at the time. Things like wine and coca leaves which contain cocaine. Pemberton claimed that french wine coca was an energy drink and a remedy for morphine addiction and the people loved it. Unsurprisingly the beverage sold well but it wasn't long before pemberton ran into an obstacle just months after french. Wine coca hit. The shelves at the end of eighteen eighty five fulton county georgia outlawed alcohol atlanta based dot. Pemberton had a new problem realizing he probably never strike it big with his mental tonic. Pemberton went back to the drawing board. He wanted to replicate french wine. Coca success but with a non alcoholic beverage. Luckily he had a new product in. Mind it too featured coca leaves but he added the kola nut a west african fruit pit. That's high in caffeine. The mixture of coca and cola gave customers a mild buzz and inspired the drinks name. Coca-cola the beverage sold modestly in its first year unfortunately. Pemberton wasn't particularly skilled with marketing. and distribution. so shortly before his death he sold the business to a fellow druggist with more business. Sense acer candler from their candler built a beverage empire through soda fountains in the nineteenth century. Chola manufacturers generally sold syrup to local businesses. This was more efficient because soda. Bottling technology was fairly new and not widespread yet. They're carbonated water was added to the syrup. So the coke was fresh and fizzy when it was served. Gamblers forward thinking mindset. Didn't stop there. He knew he could reach more customers if he didn't limit his avenues of distribution so in eighteen eighty nine. He sold bottling rights to a plant in chattanooga tennessee. Now customers didn't need to visit the nearest soda fountain for a glass of coca cola. They could buy it the corner shop and drink it at home then. Candler made another even bigger shakeup. He altered the coca cola recipe. We don't know all the changes candler made to the recipe. But we know one of his goals. He didn't want to sell cocaine to his customers and he had two reasons why first candler was very religious second and more importantly he was racist. Most soda fountains were segregated. So only white people could drink coca cola on tap but once he started selling bottled coke. Southern newspapers began printing rumors of quote negro cocaine fiends. In quote white supremacists suggested that the soda drove people of color to commit violent crimes including sexual assault hypocritically. Nobody expressed any concern. That cocaine might drive a white people to commit crimes and to be realistic. There probably wasn't enough cocaine in the beverage to spur consumers to violence although it's hard to say because it doesn't seem like anyone was tracking how much they were using in the recipe. Regardless candler was committed to eliminating the coke from coke.

How To Silence Your Saboteur with Remy Blumenfeld
"My guest. Today is remmy blumenfeld. Me is one of the world's leading us coaches in advisors. He's contributed more than fifty articles to forbes and has listed by the independent newspaper as one of the twenty most influential. Lgbtq people in the united kingdom. He's been featured the new york times the sunday times. Forbes and inc is clients are leaders from across the creative sector from film. Tv advertising publishing in gaining. Thanks so much for joining me today. Remmy ion is my pleasure. I am thrilled to have you here. We're gonna be talking about a subject. That number one i think is so important for business. Owners and founders but also so timely. I guess i i would say it's probably evergreen. You know it's probably always timely. But it is about that that savage that inner salvator that we have And i would really like to start with asking you to share. What what you think that saboteur is and how you see it affecting business owners yeah so the saboteur is a voice in your head and of course we are all made up of many different parts that may be the salesman that maybe the publicist that may be the shy retiring person with complex beings but when we have a conversation with ourselves in our head very often the part of ourselves that we're talking to in our head is not the most helpful part very often. The part of ourselves with communicating with is the saboteur. And the sabah. I i think it's helpful to think about this in terms of evolution you know. The saboteur is the voice in our head was designed to protect us and to be helpful to all survival by saying. Don't try that come up before and it didn't work And that's very helpful when you're going to be eaten by a barrel full down a precipice in primitive terms. It's very helpful to have a cautionary voice in your head that saying. Don't take that risk. Don't try that again. That could end in failure. You could eaten by a lion but these days you know when the risks were taking not life threatening risks for the huge majority that voice in our head. that staff from evolution is really unhelpful. Because it's it's a. It's a constantly questioning challenging. Tao ching voice the taps into environmental circumstances to remind us why whatever it is about to do could end up in bad trouble and and the bad trouble that it could end us up in. These days is really only failure. Failure as we know is necessary to success. Because if you don't fail dozens of times you won't succeed in my business. Before i went into coaching i was in. I was in tv entertainment. And you had to pitch a whole lot of ideas before you gotta yes. There was a saying that our industry sounds like yes. No no no no no no no no no no yes no no no no no no and you know the voice in your head would always be saying. Oh don't do that. Don't pitch that show put in that proposal. You could look foolish. You could fail. It could be rejected. Who are you to do this. And i think diane you're right that the voice is evergreen sadly but in these times off of stress and scarcity and on news waves being completely clogged with with negative messages. Al-sabah has a lot of material to work on. You know because it. It doesn't take much to derail you because you know. I thought i mean a very simple one is like don't do that. It's a recession. Who will want that. It's a recession and that immediately kind of short circuits so many things just thinking well the economic times a bad so the voice in my head. That saying don't do that. Whatever that might be launching new product lines. Start a business hire somebody expand. Whatever it is you might be thinking of doing when that voice in your head you're sabotage says don't try that those a recession on think you. Are you crazy. The other part of you the pop. That's perhaps a little bit more and daring is very easily put off. So maybe that's you know that's a helpful kind of overview of our savage basically the voice in your head that says. Don't you try that. you'll look foolish. Don't try that it won't work. Why are you even thinking of doing that. Who'd think you up to do it. That's the sabotage on. It sounds like the there are times when the saboteur sounds like the their reasoning is valid. Like what the example escaping. Don't you that. There's a recession right. So so it feels like it's we. Can vince ourselves saboteurs right. A hundred percent hundred percent and the and the sabah works on pre existing agreements. Which are out there in the world which it's part of a that you'll never gonna ditch your saboteur and i think it's perhaps even useful to to recognize that voice in your head has has a place it has a place and if you think of all the different parts of yourself as being you'll personal board of advisors than having one board member who saying don't try that as a recession. Don't try that it went. What don't do it again. You'll look foolish. That can be okay. Annoying let's no pretend it's not annoying tablet board member like that. It's annoying but it can be useful. I think the problem diameters for many of us alone in our heads with the board of one the board member of one that we have is the salvatore and until we labeled at bold member as the saboteur. Recognize that you know. She has a value but she's not driving us to the place where we want to go quickly or in daring courageous ambitious imaginative way initially realized that than we. Oh yes that's the truth. Well it's not. The truth is just one perspective. It's just one it's one perspective and you could even argue that it's a useful perspective but it it. It's the only perspective you become allies because all the conversations that you're having with yourself you'll sabotage in your head end up in feeling defeated and feeling like Thank goodness. I didn't try that because i would have looked foolish as though you see. I think the saboteur believes the failing and looking foolish are the worst possible things that could happen to you. And of course a part of you part of me believes that too because we've all had bad experiences with failing looking foolish and so when the saboteur voice in our head says that we listen whereas the reality is we should as a good chairman of our own board. Say thank you for your contribution. I will bear that in mind and then take some other input right. That's that's the way i look at it. Yeah yeah yeah definitely okay. So how does someone silence that saboteur question. And i'm afraid the answer is you cannot silence you'll sabah. Zabaleta was put that by evolution. Some people's loud too some people sabotage more frequent. However what you can do is put your saboteur in that place and i think the first thing you can do is just by recognizing it by recognizing the that voice in my head that i'm talking with all the time is very often my saboteur and when it creeps in need to recognize that that's that's the perspective but not the only respect. So that's one thing you know the very first thing but it's really important. Recognize the voice in my head is not me it's by sabato and then the second thing is maybe just to kind of put it in a box so i think of my subah diane like a like a still away on my ship right. So i'm the captain and the captain decides where we're going to go how we're gonna get the how it's going to be. Who's gonna come along for the ride and the saboteur is a stowaway who i don't really want on the ship. They are there any way and they are always undermining everyone on everything and it has a useful function but they are still away.
Success and Revenue for Your Online Business - Guaranteed with Keith Lynch
"So keith. You actually guarantee results for your partners. And i love how you say. Hey i mean we don't guarantee results for everybody for our partners who we specifically choose because they have the right idea that we can support in the right manner. But we're talking to guarantee brother of ten k. revenue per month for each and every site so give us a little bit behind the scenes. I mean i know you can't give like the entire ingredients and all the potions and all that jazz but how does your team follow through on this. Yeah absolutely of course. Can't give away the secret sauce recipe. But i will say there's a lot of blood sweat and tears into it. We do a short and sweet version of jail is that we have a system and a process that works exceptionally well along with an amazing team. Who's dedicated to the success of all of our partners so a lot of moving parts to it as with any agency again it's the development the research the marketing etc etc. But at the end of the day we're committed to achieve success. And if you want to look at it from contractual perspective where we're contractually obligated to reach that ten k per month so we do work around the clock so we hit it but again. I think that when it comes to business when it comes to as you said earlier providing value achieving value versus just plain old success is about backing up what you say you can do. And i think that's where the guarantee comes into play again. That's where we kind of take partnership approach with with all of our clients. Let's maybe brag about when your clients. Do you have an example that you liked to talk about. I mean we can be specific or nonspecific as possible but hey feel free to give him shout outs. There may be getting some free fire nation love as a result. So i mean you know as a one or two companies that may be our little interesting and different in and out of each other so we need a couple of different perspectives. That you are just in love with. And that's why you brought him on and they're rock-n-roll and for different reasons absolutely. We've got several that. We love to brag about. But there's actually one this month jail excited to tell you about. We had a. We have a partner that we brought on last year built an entire website for her of course in a specific niche actually print on demand. We designed all of the t shirts that she wanted to sell. Very much related to Here in the states being somewhat patriotic not political of course but patriotic and sort catering to that demographic got everything built out and for any digital markers in the fire nation. They probably feel my pain and twenty. Twenty digital marketing specifically on facebook and instagram has been interesting has been a nightmare so we hit a lot of challenges in roadblocks on facebook just like every other agency and the digital marketing space. What we did with this particular partner. Is we kind of took to getting some media attention with her and for her to kind of call out the fact that these challenges exist within social marketing digital marketing on social platforms. And it's funny within a week of doing so. Not only do we cross the ten case. She actually hit about two hundred and fifty thousand in sales just from some unique. Think outside the box. You know good old school. Pr kind of thing. So that's my most recent bragging success story with the quantify ecosystem. I love the recent one. So give us one other one. It could be two years ago. A year ago could be any timeframe just for a little different perspective and again we can be asked pacific or as vague as possible. If you want to protect the person forever you know reasons. Because you know i do understand. Fire nation where makes sense where potentially people are crushing it with a specific product on amazon. And they got this niche carved out and hey if it becomes a saturated market. They lose that and so. What do you want to share in that area keith. A lot of partners that come aboard love to ask about the niche choice rights that we that we create right. So that's always you know big number one question as they come aboard. We've got some strange ones out there. But of course it's all validated with data etc. One of my favorite ones a few years ago. We we dug into the bowtie niche. Which i know sounds bazaar but it turns out. Bow ties having sane margins so as we. We develop this business for this partner. We found that bow ties often retail whether it's online or off for you know in the neighborhood say twenty to thirty dollars. A bowtie turns out those bow ties. Cost about seventy cents to a dollar and a quarter wholesale. The margins are insane so that is another example of as we go through we carve out niches in these businesses for our partners we discovered a sort of these niches or sub niches that we didn't know existed and It's pretty easy to get to ten k. A month with with something like that so we got that one to ten cameras pretty quickly so i can see it now. Fire nation. a bunch of people are going to be turning into bowtie salesmen and saleswomen. Which is why. I gave you the opportunity. Not too specific but hey he's giving away the farm here which is pretty flipping awesome. And let's be. Honest is huge benefits of partying with quantify. Is that your team literally. Offers end to end. Training end support fire nation and support. We're talking market research. Drop ship product and supplier sourcing. Which by the way supplier sourcing a pain in the i can talk from experience with all three of my journals holy crap. We're also talking. Website design developments marketing automation advertising campaign development. I mean this is. The whole package is an end to end system. So those are a lot of moving parts keith. How do you ensure that each business continues to run smooth in support of of these partners of yours. It's a great question. The the longest is with us jail the that we always tell our new partners. We don't go away until you hit that ten k. Or greater within a calendar month and even then we we really. Don't go away until you tell us to. It's a true partnership so we don't really go anywhere until the partner tells us to do so until they got the steering wheel so to speak. But i will tell you. We've some challenges in that space in the past where a partner will say okay. This is awesome. I've got the business. I co managed with you. You shown us everything we need to know. And then some and then you know they'll go away fly the nest so to speak and then they come back three months later saying okay. Something's wrong so it's one of those things that we there's. There's never a phone call. We won't take but it is one of those things. Also we're we we really gird our partners a stick with the training and the support that we provide for them term. That's why it's there fire nation. That is why it's there so keith. You've given us a ton of value. Give us one Major value bomb about commerce about the conversations that we've had today what's one minute thing. You wanna make sure that fire nation walks away with. They can really kind of putting their hats. Learn from an execute upon absolutely i would say online businesses in general fire nation whether it's e commerce or otherwise is the easiest fastest path to cash so to speak and lessons provided or learned with any digital. Excuse me with any business type. That's available today. And i would say it's the path of least resistance gonna give you the less at least hurdles in any industry so whether it's through quantify whether it's simply watching youtube and immersing yourself in that industry or any industry i would say e commerce is the way to go keith. Give us a final call to action. How do we learn more about quantify. How can people contact you. How can people. Maybe you know pitch themselves to potentially become a partner of yours. Absolutely quantify dot com of course qualifies with the w so cute w. ify dot com forward slash. Fire will get the fire nation. A couple of different things We would love anybody who comes from fire nation and becomes a partner with quantify. We'd love to give them some advertising spending cash as they get into their ecommerce business with us and launched. we'd like to offer them a thousand dollars toward their their spent as they get into it and with your permission and blessing jd. I'd love to be able to give them the mastery journal as well or yeah. I'm a huge fan of the freedoms. I got it a couple of years ago and now i find myself buying it on. Repeat for friends family colleagues and partners. So i'd love to be able to offer that the fire nation as well for anyone who becomes a quantified partner. God that's so cool. I mean that's really cool. Fire nation. so man you're hearing that keith. He walks walk. He talks to talk one more time. He's kind of run through what fire nation gets if they go to quantify dot com slash. Fire fill out the application or the inquiry ford to become a partner. If you become a partner with quantify will give you a thousand bucks towards your ad spend as you launch your new ecommerce business that we built with you in four and of course the famous jail de mastery journal which we think everyone on the planet should have
The 3 Stages of your Selling Skills Development
"Today we're talking about the three stages of developing in sales specifically selling skills and most salespeople stop at either stage one or they fall victim to stage three point five in previous articles we cover the journey segments of a sales career in a four part series. I went through the life and times of the early years all the way through to the later years of a sales career. He can go back and look for the blog titled the life and times of an egg sales professional their early years and so on so forth. Today we cover the selling skills development stages these are how you learned to sell learn to manage a territory learn to become a positive brand new. Your customers and ultimately remain top of mind as the go-to salesperson in your market will stage one. Is the basics this. This is hard skills. It's the beginning the bread and butter the basic training course on sale. This is getting your bachelor's degree in selling skills in the stage you learn how to connect with customers. Ask questions present on your products and finally asked for the sale. Most of us have been to one or several of these courses. They are engaging for sure for the new salesperson as they find out that there's an actual process to selling which they can go through to help them. Sal now the majority of this development stages designed around what to do rate when you get in front of a customer and that's pretty important you got to know that in order to continue to sell. Everybody knows how to drive their vehicle out to the customer and meet them now. You need to know. What do you do from the minute you get out of your truck and start talking to your customer. When the last thirty years. I've been through about a dozen of these programs and a facilitated hundreds of them they're great. They're a requirement while engaging for a newcomer they can seem repetitive to an experienced sales person especially the person as an instructor but they are a great refresher each time. You go through them. And you hear new ways to understand the old basics. Here's an interesting thing. Often sales people think they will attend a course like this and learn some revolutionary way. That no one else knows no one else out. There knows the trouble is that selling steps are a fairly old concept. And they're all based on the same or similar staps. This stage is really the you gotta look at this. Stage is like the anti-gay it into the selling game. I'd like for you to look at it as just as described. Bootcamp your bachelors. Do your stage one in your development now if you want to be just a little better than the average sales person out there tune in to stage one point five and that is time and territory management. I've written a couple articles. Call the number one and number two salesperson killer and you can go in there and google and you'll find those articles they're great. The number one and number two sales person killer is not the steps of the selling process. It's disorganization and calling on the wrong accounts. Both of these are fundamentals of time and territory management and the problem is that few sales training courses ever discuss these topics as a salesperson. We are left to figure it out on our own. Give us the keys to the territory so to speak to a pick and keys to a territory or the assumption is that we will interrupt our very busy sales manager and ask her. Hey what should i do next. Or who should i call on today. You know that's just not going to happen. We're not gonna stop and ask for help like that. We office from our homes even more now since the pandemic so we wake up take a guess as to who should go see and then turn right or turn left out of the driveway for the day and i know many of you just like i did got to. The top of the drive win said flip a coin. I don't know let's go right today or we go see the accounts we haven't been to in a while or the accounts that have been complaining recently. Kind of the squeaky wheel. Well let's move on to stage two and that is what we call the soft skills and i like to call him the essential skills to that sounds better. We're getting now into the best part of selling and developing yourself in your role. The essential selling skills are often mislabeled. Like i said as soft skills as if their easy the soft really means that they don't have hard and fast measurements however they are the most important for long term success in your agribusiness territory. These skill separate the sales person from the day to day weekly or monthly selling process to that of the trusted adviser very important. Step the salesperson. Who goes out and does their job of asking questions and presenting on their products and then closing sale. Will they'll have success. you know. rinse and repeat. Keep doing it keep doing it. Keep doing it. You'll have success however they will also get price shopped and they're gonna fight the feature benefit comparisons that customers are constantly doing by applying the essential selling skills. You can begin the transformation from vendor to trusted adviser now. This doesn't remove all price resistance nor does it combat all objections however it does tip the scales in your favor. A question is how much or how many dollars connect charge from my tractor versus the next competitor. Mike seed variety versus the next competitor. Well that's a great question. One that i spent a lot of time discovering with sales people in workshops and coaching discussions and as always it depends. It depends on how much you can differentiate. How much value do you bring. Your customer and value is in the terms of dollars time or emotional impact. That's the only three things that you can provide of value to your customer. It's either you save a money making money save time make them time or you have a emotional impact. You reduce frustrations you increase Happiness or you reduce risk. Whatever the case is so what are some of the essential selling skills out there that you need to develop communication empathy teamwork interpersonal skills work in problem solving flexibility continuous improvement and finally leadership. There's others i'm sure. But those are some of the key ones that i like to think about as i work with developing sales people and how to go from vendor to trusted adviser as you can see. They're tough to measure and tough to determine how important any one of them is over the other however they are learnable and they developed over a lifetime career in sales the struggle is that nobody really teaches them specifically and speeds up that learning process. So that's what i want you to do. Speed up the learning process on the essential. Selling skills will you can also of see that no matter how good you are at asking good questions inclosing or using the right words in your closing the hard skills if you lack some of these essential skills. You're not going to sell customer for very long. You might get a sale but it might be the last one you get ultimately these to develop in stages lead to you becoming a brand so stage three. Is i want you to think about your development as you becoming a brand in a recent training session a salesperson in the group i was talking about prosperity. He stated that if the prospect doesn't buy from him on the first call he moves on and does not return. What i. I had a lot of doubts on this and i started a challenge. Does that's not normally the case. We have to call people out no three four ten twenty times sometimes in order to get them to buy from us so some discussion. It turns out that this sales person has been selling in his market for over twenty years the customers he works with have some of the highest production yields on their hurt so this salesman's local brand image is so high that he only works with the big herds who know him you know. He is filled the his territory and only takes on a few new customers. So if you are a prospect and you wanna work with him you need inside pretty quickly now. This is a unique situation. And i had to challenge that you know. It's it's an example of the highest form of a personal buran. He is very well known and people prefer to work with him. I'm sure it didn't happen. Overnight in this salesperson goes above and beyond for his customers and the reward comes in the form of excellent referrals and customers who value every chance to work with him to important concepts to keep in. Mind when you think about your personal brand number one. You do have a personal brand. Yes you have a company brand and a you know maybe a manufacturer's brand but you also have a personal brand to your customers. And i describe it as what it's like to do business with you specifically you your customers form this brand of you in their mind over the years as they work with you. Let me share a few personal brand images of sales people that might be out there first of all helpful to talkative. See him when there's a sale stops by with no real purpose driven to do what's best for me well connected in the industry. She's my go-to person when something goes wrong. Talks and talks but never delivers on the talk old school. But we've done business with him for so long. Those are some examples of brand images that customers may have of you. Secondly it's important to keep in mind that your customer owns the brand of you. Yes that's right you can. You can and you should do allow positive steps to develop your brand. But they actually own their
New Agent (or Returning Agent) Immediate Action Plan
"Three to one and we're back. It is january the twentieth. It is inauguration day. I understand our new president will be standing in front of a bunch of lights and flags as he takes the oath of office. Not quite the same as a normal inauguration but a historic day nonetheless. And that's the end of our political banter for today's podcast actual factual okay. So we meant to talk about this topic yesterday and frankly we got hooked into talking about zillow which was something that. I'm glad we talked about because many of you reacted very positively as we were. I think confirming a lot of your suspicions. About the fact that zillow is definitely not your business partner in the sense that You know a business partner abnormal normally be helping you and your business lewis definitely been waiting in the tall grass for over a decade Essentially to displace you to disinter mediate you and clearly. That is what they're doing so we talked about that yesterday. Make sure you listen to yesterday's podcast the day before that we were talking about this very topic in this topic is something that is near and dear to our hearts because of the fact that we have so many people joining our coaching business You know coaching business focuses primarily on teaching agents that complete system a system. That's designed to get them into taking listing so our businesses primarily focused on agents. Who will learn how to be listing agents. Because frankly we know. Obviously we touch on the buyer side. We touch on building team writing staff. We do all that stuff. But we want your focus on being powerful listing agent. Because that is where you ultimately get the most leverage that is regenerate the most profits. Frankly and that's how you create a real business Focusing on buyers as we discussed yesterday a bit of a perilous path going forward. If you have not listened to that podcast please listen. Because i think you'll be very very clear that the buyer agent business as it's been really i think prevalent since the ninety s when buyer agents became a thing. I think you really gonna discovered that might not be the future you over invest in giving what zillow and so many other companies are doing so. Please go back and listen to a podcast from yesterday. But today's podcast is a continuation. It's a focus on what action steps. You should be taking now. If you're a new aged or really. I returning agent and my by returning. I mean getting back in the business but maybe returning emotionally to recommitting to your real estate career. Is that about right julie. That's right. So i think a lot of these points. Apply to everyone as a revisit to your education. You can take any one of these points even if you are a fairly grizzled veterans. You know what. I need to brush up on that. I find that you know embracing the fact that knowledge equals. Confidence in ignorance equals fear. That's one of the core things here right. So i find a lot of returning agents new agents newer agents. They have kind of like an education deficit and experienced deficit. And that's really hard to just like give someone but these points are designed to shorten that learning curve. You have to acknowledge the fact. And i don't want to. We won't drill down on this too far. But it's really important that you acknowledge the fact that You're probably in a there's what four distinct arguably five distinct phases of learning phases of mastery. There's a incompetence conscious competence. There's there's what's the next one. Let's say you start out unconsciously incompetent. These views means. You don't know what you don't know literally what they mean unconscious incompetent. You don't even know that their stuff you don't know until usually something kicks your butt and then you move into the next stage which is consciously incompetent now. You have an awareness of your incompetence. This is usually when people invest in coaching Then you start to have conscious competence. You are working on your skills but you still have to be conscious of the competency. You're working on like getting your relisting package in gear and having a really great predictable listing presentation but you having to make the efforts. You're consciously competent. It takes mental and emotional effort. Because it's not you're not on autopilot in the last basis unconscious competence. That's where you don't have to think about it anymore. And then some people would argue that. There's a face beyond that but just for the sake of expediency and explaining what we want you guys to understand is chances are if you're new. Well not chances are if you're new in the business you're unconsciously incompetent in other words you don't know what you don't know if you're a returning in the business maybe you've had a bunch of false starts. You're in that same face to and that phase is not something to be ashamed of. That phase is something to be embraced because it means that you're basically a blank slate. Now this is also the most vulnerable phase that you can be and because you're gonna be susceptible to charlatans you're gonna be susceptible to snake oil salesman you're gonna be susceptible to people selling your shiny objects
Avon Rebrands Amid a Surge in Reps
"Month brought big changes to a beloved brand avon. I made a name for itself by offering housewives away to earn independent income by selling skin-care perfume and cosmetics from home but the iconic american company is no longer an independent corporation or based in america the household name cosmetics company is now to companies owned by two different international corporations south korean consumer products giant elgin household and health healthcare which bought avon's north american business and brazil's largest cosmetic company nature cosmetic os which bought the majority of the company in a deal that closed this month. Lg is also a significant investor in the net. Sure deal. it's another end of an era story which has been a familiar. Refrain of late for nearly a century and a half. Avon's presence has been a constant in the beauty sector. Now you'll say lights from the beginning. Avon was a trendsetter decades. Before american women had the right to vote avon founder. David h mcconnell gave them a chance to earn an independent living. Mcconnell was a traveling book salesman who offered perfume to his customers. As a perk. The perfume was so popular that he soon created his own product line in the late eighteen hundreds. He recruited women. He met during his book selling days. As the first quote avon ladies in the century that followed the company became a direct selling amazon with more than six million home-based representatives at its peak. But the beauty behemoth suffered an ugly fall in more recent years value plummeted from its peak of twenty billion dollars. The company struggled to keep pace with changing consumer tastes one forbes. Report blames the company's decline on a failure to adapt to the changing role of women in the workplace. An ill conceived plan to crack the retail sector in stores like sears in jc penney after well known ceo andrea junks. Ouster in twenty eleven one citigroup analysts said quote. You guys are so totally screwed up in. So many ways that change has to be radical a report in fortune recount. The company also failed to anticipate new competition. Both from companies like amazon and from upstarts like rodin and fields. That's the skin care. Brand behind the wildly popular. Acne treatment proactiv rodin and fields was purchased by estee lauder three years later and converted into a direct selling company. The brand now grosses more than a billion dollars a year. Largely because tech savvy. Soccer moms sell the lotions and serums to their pows by a social media but avon may win the beauty competition and the end. Direct sailings appeal has faded in the us. But it's still a popular concept in many other countries and the new international focus means avon can better capitalize on hot markets like the uk where pandemic job losses led to a one hundred percent surge in new rep sign ups last year and of course avon will still be doing business in its country of origin. So if you need glimmer sticks or skin so soft well fear not. They're still just a socially distanced. Quarter away

How Do Democrats React To Biden Winning The Presidency?
"In republican circles in washington. Dc the scrambled for the lifeboats appears to be underway as it becomes clearer that the ss trump is holed below the waterline monday. The electoral college did as instructed by voters last month and formally anointed joe biden as the president elect following the reluctance of an assortment of chuckling judges to hear any trump's lawsuits. The jig would appear to be up a now. Senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell has often his grudging. Congratulations to the incoming forty-six president on joined with more on this by scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. First of all to senator mcconnell's concessions slash congratulations. How big a deal is that. It's a big deal in the immediate term because it finally tips off that the republican heavyweights in washington are going to accept a president-elect biden now there will be a few house republicans who i think. Make a couple of false on january six which is when you have the formal congressional confirmation of the electoral college vote but by but mcconnell action only put out a statement yesterday. He sent his jeopardy john tune around to legislators to say that that house rebellion amongst republicans would not be very welcome. So i think the immediate issue is slow. Joe biden comes in as the forty six american president but there were onto the next two issues and one of those is whether mcconnell will work with the biden administration or just keep trying to obstruct it and then perhaps the broader issue at least for the republican party is that even if donald trump is water president. He may not be ready to cancel the reality. Tv show yet. So how does the gop try to count. Try to deal with an insurgent trumpism trying to take over the circus. Being mcconnell's acknowledgement is of course roughly the equivalent of admitting that the sun is going to come up tomorrow morning at eight hundred knowledge of reality but how much political calculation is mcconnell. Still making their because ridiculous. Though it is to even stated out loud feels we. There will be now a not insignificant number of trump voters american citizens who feel like senator mcconnell ease in on the plot. It's already out there. I mean donald trump was on twitter. Re tweeting and tweeting messages. Yesterday that mcconnell had sold him out and a very hard right polemicist information free performances. Still influential mark. Levin was calling last night for the resignation of mcconnell his replacement by someone more appropriate but becomes been around for decades. And he's pretty sharp. He's carried water for trump for almost four years. He no longer is facing that issue carrying water for trump facing that issue of word as the gop. Go nuts nuts andrew. We looked at another signal from yesterday after weeks. Indeed months of holding up a corona virus stimulus bill mcconnell was finally discussing it with leading republicans and democrats like the house speaker. Nancy pelosi in other words. We may get a deal by the end of this week. Which would be bipartisan. Which would be a stimulus deal in which neither side gets every thing at wants but it's actually a sign of cooperation now. We'll mcconnell can do that through the spring or will he as he did with the obama administration only a few years ago. Try to block it at every turn. I think that's the big immediate question. In washington even as the republicans try to grapple with what their identity is not post trump but still in the midst of trump. i mean. How difficult is that going to make life full mcconnell and what we might still think of as mainstream republicans in the mean all political parties have a lunatic fringe. That's pretty much on avoidable. But the republican party has been now more or less entirely captured by this poll off. The poll shows that a heavy majority of republican. Voters believed that last month presidential election was rigged despite the fact that not one shred of evidence for this assertion has been presented. Yeah but andrew. I think working at two levels in this new form of twenty-first-century politics and we're not sure if one triumphs or were not sure even if they coexist with each other in some strange political fantasy world and by that i mean what are they mitch. Mcconnell's looking at is you looking at the day to day workings of washington and that is donald trump doesn't have that many troops in the senate. Donald trump doesn't have anybody in the agencies because they all hate him. Donald trump does have sung trump est in the house The mcconnell thinks. Look you know i can deal with those folks and i think in normal times he could can mcconnell deal where the trumpster strongest however which is in this world of the airwaves. The hard right attack These aren't news companies. These are basically propaganda. L. newsmax breitbart and even most of fox. You know kim mcconnell actually deal with that media invective. it's become date after day after day. Which will say if he deals with democrats he sold out. And what if we get the spanner in the works and it may be sooner rather than later that trump says hey guys. I'm running for president in two thousand twenty four and he tries to dominate the new cycle with the day-to-day spectacle of. What's donald going. Do next i. I still think that the idea of a trump is takeover. The republican party is probably not there. But i do think. The trump insurgency at the level of the day to day chatter is still alive because again quick reminder more than half of republicans fifty four percent said in a recent poll that their favorite candidate for twenty twenty four donald. John trump. Well on that happy thought. How big a thing is it going to be. If on january twentieth president trump declines to turn up to watch biden be inaugurated as his successor and perhaps even tries to stage some sort of rival event. Well it'll be as big an event as the media makes it and here you know. The media doesn't make the news but it's got a role to play. It's been a part of the problem in the united states. It's part of the most critical point for america right now since. Nineteen forty five if the media gives attention to trump which tries to override or at least tries to rival. The inauguration play into his hands if the media effectively ignores trump which is a possibility. Believe it or not it just keeps focused on the inauguration and keeps focused on the business to be done in a pandemic in which one of the three hundred thousand americans died. Look trump only only gets spread his particular type of political whether you call it snake oil or poison. If someone's there to buy it is the media doesn't buy it snake oil salesman. You got nowhere to go

The defied but We'd in effect bomb charlie At an induced shutdown of parts of the economy hit many types of small businesses. Very very hard and We made some provision for that and march in terms of the cares act but then nobody really knew how long the Now this self inflicted Recession would would last with this particular effect on small businesses so We need another. We need another injection to To complete the complete the job and congress's debating right now and i just hope very much that they extend the p p. A plan on a on a large scale to Let the people who may see the of the light at the end of the tunnel. Get to the end of the tunnel but So it's it's very timely. It's very important and And i do think congress will do something. And i hope they step a very soon because every day is important make people wonder why would bid business. Leaders are are stepping out and speaking on behalf of some of the small businesses. What what is it that concerns you about this. Why is this an issue that you're you're really putting yourself out there with well. Big businesses generally a gun very. Well not the if. They were traveling. Entertainment related days. They still have difficulties but The fed did a terrific job. The they saved us from something that would have been a lot worse than two thousand eight nine When they acted in march so large companies who in the middle of march early march were were going to have no access to capital The market just open wide and the corporate issuance was huge but the small businesses Received some help.

Interview With Shawn Van Dyke
"John thanks for taking the time to come and chat with us today. How's it. How's it going on doing great man. Thanks for having me. will you give us. I read your bio on your website. But will you give me in the audience of big picture of your background and kind of have to where you are now in. kind of. Give us the backstory. Yeah sir so by education and training or by just sending a lot of tuition money to the university of tennessee. I eventually ended up with a couple of engineering degrees. So i started my career in construction even though that might offend some people when this always used to be an engineer i make fun of engineers used to be one but i got a degree in civil engineering and then a master's in structural engineering and then went out and did the engineering thing for several years and then realized i don't really know how to build anything and i wanted to get out on the job site so transition from i'd say transition from engineering into construction. I really got laid off from the engineering firm. Heart was working for In went and joined project management team for large commercial contractor that. Put me out on large commercial sites Building all sorts of seven are really really like that Did that for a few years than my way. Up working for some architects and then for real estate developer Doing construction management so. I ended up traveling around the country building commercial real estate projects. You know big stores in the out lot developing out lots and all of that kind of stuff in that for several years. And by this time i was married had five kids now so the second kid was on the way my wife was like. I'm glad you're enjoying your job but You gotta stick around mean. I was on the road three or four days a week wherever the projects were so. That was my first business. Started back in. Two thousand five was a construction management and real estate development company. I'm here in knoxville tennessee. So as doing that work here locally then two thousand eight hit and banks were not lending money to real estate developers anymore So i transitioned from there and started a remodeling in general contracting business People these days called a pivot. I didn't realize pivoting at the time. I just time. I had four kids. Three four came back them So put the tool belt on and started a small construction company. Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and He he so he said I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so
"salesman" Discussed on What A Day
"Seventy, five, thousand plus dead people Ito in this country because of his action. There were a lot of brown character witnesses that described how not racist and accepting America is while also vilifying immigration even as they personally benefited from it. So perfect example, there were two Guatemalan. American sisters who runs some small business that was never really clearly defined but they received a stimulus loan touting their achievement of the American dream like they really did it. But I kind of misses the point that trump actually gutted that immigration policy that allowed Guatemalans to come here, and also ignores the fact that while their business whatever it is is still Standing a lot of small businesses aren't or may not come back in the next several months without any legitimate plan to address the pandemic in any meaningful way. Also, there was some weird liquid around dodge. Juniors is when he was yelling about how cool thinks his dad is I? Just I have questions that deserve answers tears for his father and for America of most of the Cova conversation too was kind of about placing blame on Democrats for past comments at the start of the pandemic and this whole thing of people had gotten it wrong they had. They had shown fealty to trump as it were when they were desperately trying to get resources from the administration when he wasn't. Giving them to democratic cities and states, and then acting as though it had been taken seriously by the administration as opposed to those Democrats that it was largely solved, which makes sense again, because trump is pulling in the gutter on the pandemic and everything related to it so. In order to insulate him, they had to form an alternate reality and the only recourse then is fear mongering about Democrats but it's hard to save that as moving anyone because the pandemic is still. So Front and center in most people's lives overall I think what this show does. It's tougher to make the case about what might happen when a lot of people are judging at the moment what Is actually happening amen. All right. Well, if you WANNA watch the RNC first of all, why Second Watch it with crooked all right. We've got this thing called group thread going each night this.
"salesman" Discussed on What A Day
"Today show it is one of the Republican National Convention then some headlines But first the latest in we'll start in Kenosha Wisconsin where protesters gathered for a second night following the police shooting of Jacob Blake at twenty nine year old black resident who's reportedly still in the intensive care unit at a local hospital protests over the shooting and racist policing have also spread to other places including Minneapolis New York Los Angeles, and DC Gideon we started to get news about the shooting on Sunday. So catch US up on. Where things are standing right now? Yes. A little bit of the backstory I. As you said, a police officer shot Blake on Sunday and there's a video that was recorded by a bystander from across the street that captured the graphic incidents and it shows blake trying to get into his car while police officer follows him and points a gun at him and ultimately shoots him in the back seven times and you can't it on the video but Blake's three young children were reportedly in the car as he was shot. Local police haven't released much information at all at this point saying that they were responding to a domestic incident but a lawyer for Blake's family says that Blake was trying to break up an argument between two women when the police arrived and shot him hundreds of protesters started to gather almost immediately downtown Kenosha on Sunday night to protest the shooting and then police use tear gas and several vehicles reportedly set on fire yesterday the police said a curfew of APM. In the National Guard was sent in the protests continued last night even after curfew and were ongoing as we go to record. And just a quick reminder that tear gas causes choking and coughing and being deployed during a respiratory pandemic and potentially causes other health effects. There are now accounts piling up from Portland of tear-gas causing menstrual irregularities. So the police solution to the outrage about a black man being shot seven times on video is to terrorize people upset about it if essentially hurt even. More people but back to where things stand now, investigation has been opened up. So let's talk about that. Yes. So as of now, the investigation has been turned over to the Wisconsin Department of Justice in the State Attorney General, and so they are going to be gathering information on what happened, and then we'll hand over their evidence to the local district attorney. To decide whether to bring criminal charges against the cops, the district attorney also said yesterday that he hopes federal prosecutors will conduct a parallel investigation into the shooting that is in addition to that, and in the meantime, three cops that were on the scene have all been placed on administrative leave though their names have not been released and one note on additional video. Evidence that may or may not come in police officers in Kenosha, do not wear body cameras and according to the. Times the city aims to start using them and twenty, twenty two but they've been a matter of debate before now. So most police cars do have dashboard cameras, several local and state elected officials have spoken out about the shooting including Wisconsin's Democratic Governor Tony. And Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes who said quote this was on an accident. This is not bad police work. This felt like some sort of vendetta being taken out on a member of our community. Speaking of State Officials Governor and Lieutenant Governor also called for a special session to pass police reform legislation. So what do we know about that? Yes, versus calling for this session to happen next week and he wants to state legislature to consider measures. He proposed back in June following the police killings of George, Floyd at Minnesota and Brianna Taylor and Kentucky, and so those measures include things like establishing a state wide use of four standard banning choke holds and no knock warrants. Republican speaker of the House in Wisconsin has already dismissed the governor and say Republicans have tried to undermine at almost every turn throughout this term so far in a statement, the Republican speaker said he was disturbed quote officer involved shooting but also disturbed by property damage at the protests and said now is not the time for politics. So Akilah that phrase officer involved struck me as odd and used seemingly all the time I saw someone tweet yesterday that it'd be like saying a shark involved shark bite. So let's delve into this a little. Bit Yeah I mean I think it's an absolving and police curated term and it puts the blame on one. It's the passive voice that completely misses how the officer was actually involved. So I think we have to retire the phrase so many gun advocates an police advocates and just to be clear that diagram is a circle say that guns don't kill people people kill people then they need to keep that same fucking energy and say with their chests a police officer shot a man seven times in the back in front of his children. WE'RE GONNA put links in our show notes to resources to where you can donate and how to get involved to support justice and accountability in Wisconsin. Really sorry that we have to keep waking up with news like this and I'm just sorry that this is a reality. But the best thing to shake us out of one trauma is another. So let's talk about the opening day of the RNC. If. You have a windmill anywhere near your house. Congratulations. You House just went down seventy five percent in value. Are Right so before all the prime time speeches began last night, there was some official business that took place in Charlotte North Carolina, during the day yesterday the Republican Party shock surprise officially renominated president trump and vice president pence and trump and pence also spoke during the nomination proceedings during those speeches they touched on judges a big focus of the Republican Party for years and one of the lasting legacies of the trump administration and they started to. Drum up this theme that happened later in the night, and it's going to keep happening that the Democratic nominee Joe Biden is too politically radical, which is somewhat ironic. Coming off a week in which Biden Irksome progressive actually by saying things like quote most cops are good and devoting some airtime to Republicans vouching on his behalf. But let's get into the nighttime event which took place mostly live at a speaker's podium in Washington. DC. With some videos interspersed. This election is a battle for the soul of America your choice is clear. Do you support that cancel culture the cosmopolitan elites of Nancy Pelosi Chuck? Schumer and Joe Biden who blame America first. Do you think America is to blame. Or do you believe in American greatness but in yourself in president trump in individual and personal responsibility right ankle mercy. Really can't take anymore That was Kimberly Guilfoil a top fundraiser for Donald Trump and the girlfriend of Donald Trump junior my condolences shouting her endorsement of the President and painting Biden as a threat to. Erica which. How she kept saying I'm Erica. So sure I guess that's how we're saying now. Yeah, and I think that this is a good example because it shows that the whole of that was kind of like CPAC the conservative conference where you would have folks from Fox and other sort of conservative media figures talking and I think. Guilfoil was saying sort of typified a lot of what this first night was about, which was trump and how great he is, and it was interesting to me that going into this. Week. You know there are some quotes going around from folks about how this was supposed to be the optimistic convention but there was a lot of dark stuff in this speech and throughout the night you know it was a lot of Democrats take control cities will be overrun suburbs will be destroyed and your livelihood will be threatened and I also think on a separate note is pretty remarkable that there is you know the another police shooting that we're discussing Wisconsin and yet much of the discussion at the. RNC had to do with protesters being violent and dangerous, and politically speaking on a final note I do think that this message of course appeals to some people. But I don't know who goes from being on the fence about trump being for him from hearing this it kind of seemed to me at least that you already had to be fully bought in. But AKILAH. How would you describe what we witnessed overall to someone who didn't watch I mean I would say that they're flag budget was huge so That's important to note, but honestly, I just tell them, it's exactly what they'd expect which I think sets the bar a little low for divorce from reality at actually ended up being. So the RNC's Afar has just been pushing the fantasyland version of America or the pandemic has been solved. All these mean Democrats just WanNa shut everything down for no reason because they can't mention the pandemic and then there's that same lie about how trump saved and economy that was already steadily gaining momentum after the last Republican recession. We didn't hear any plans for how to stop the spread of the virus or how things are going to get any better. We didn't hear anything about one, hundred,.

"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the Fifteenth Story from the Personal Stories Section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled the salesman and was printed only in the first edition of the big book. It's one of those stories that listeners may be hearing for the first time that prominently featured Dr Bob and other early members of a personally helping another alcoholic achieved sobriety and now the salesman I learned to drink in a workmanlike manner when the law of the land said I couldn't and what started out as a young man spun became a habit which in its later existence laid me by the heels many a time and almost finished my career teen years. Were uneventful with me. I was raised on a farm but saw little future in farming. I was going to be a businessman took a business. College course acquired a truck and a stand in the city market of a nearby town and started off. I brought produce from my folks place and sold it to city customers and there were plenty of them with bulging pocketbooks. Back of me was the normal life of a farmer son. My parents were unusually standing people. My father was a lifelong Conrad till the day of his death. The business theory I'd learned in college was now being practiced and I was equipped beyond many of my competitors to be materially successful soon. I had expanded until I was represented in all the city markets and also in another city in nineteen twenty one we had the forerunner of the later depression and my customers disappeared successively. I had closed my stands and was finally wiped out all together being a young man of affairs I had begun to do a little business and social drinking and now with time on my hands I seem to do more of it following a year of factory work during which time I got married. I got a job with a grocer as a clerk. My Grocer employer was an expert winemaker and I had free access to his cellar. The work was monotonous in the extreme behind the counter all day when I had been used to driving around attending a business meeting people and building for what I thought was a great future I marked to a milestone the death of my father. I missed greatly. I kept hitting the wine with just occasional use of liquor leaving the grocery I went back into the produce business and out people went back to liquor again and got my first warning to quit before it got me. I was anxious to get with a concern. Which would give me an opportunity to build up again and landed a job. With a nationally known biscuit company I was assigned to a good business region covering several important towns and almost at once began to earn real money in a very short time. I was the star salesman of the company winning a reputation as a business getter. Naturally I drank with my better customers for on my route. I had many stops where there was a good business but I had things rather well under control. And in the early days of this job I seldom wound up my day's work with any visible effects of drinking. I had a private brewery at home which was now producing fifteen gallons a week most of which I drank myself. It is typical of the attitude. I had toward alcohol at that time. That when a fire threatened total destruction of my home and garage I rushed to the seller and rescued my most precious possessions a keg of wine and all the beer. I could carry and got pretty indignant when my better half suggested that I had better get some of the needed effects out of the house before it burned down. My home. Brewing gradually became a bore and I began to carry home bottles of powerful bootleg whiskey starting with a half pint every night and winding up with a cord as my daily after allowance. For Time I kept on the job. Spacey my drinks and route and very little of them in the morning hours. I just couldn't wait until I got home to drink. In a very short time I became an all day drinker chain store managers and quantity buyers. Were both my guests and hosts and every now and then we had prodigious parties finally in a reorganization shakeup resulting in new district managers with a pretty poor territory. Deal for me. I gave the company two weeks notice and quit. I had bought a home but in the year and a half following I had little income and finally lost that I became satisfied with just enough to live on and by the liquor I wanted then. I landed in the hospital when my car was hit by a truck. My car was ruined entirely that loss and my injuries. Plus recriminations of my wife sort of sobered me up. When I got out of the hospital I stayed sober for six weeks and had made up my mind to quit. I went back in the business where I had been successful salesman but with another company when I started with this concern I talk things over with my wife and made her some very solemn promises. I wasn't going to touch another drop of liquor by this time. Prohibition was a thing of the past and saloons and clubs where I was well known as a good customer and a good spender became patrons. I rolled up my business until I was again. A star but after the first four months on the new job. I began to slip. It is not unusual in the drinking experience of any man that after time of sobriety he comes to the conclusion that he can handle it in. No time at all liquor again became the most important thing in my life and every day became like another steady drinking in every saloon in club on my route I would get to headquarters every night in a top heavy condition. Just able to maintain equilibrium. I began to get warnings and was repeatedly fired and taken on again. My Wife's parents died about this time. In unfortunate circumstances all my troubles seemed to be piling up on me and liquor was the only refuge. I knew some nights I wouldn't go home at all and I did go home. I was displeased when my wife had supper ready and equally angry when she didn't I didn't want to eat at all and frequently when I underestimated consumption of the amount of liquor I brought home. I made extra trips back to town to renew the supply my morning ration when I started out with five double whiskies before I could do any business at all. I would go into a saloon trembling like a leaf tired appearance and deathly sick. I would down to double whiskies feel the glow and become almost immediately transformed in half an hour. I would be able to navigate pretty well and start out on my route. My daily reports became almost illegible and finally following arrests for driving while intoxicated and on job at that I got scared and stayed sober for several days not long afterward. I was fired for good. My wife suggested I go to my old home in the country which I did continued drinking convinced my wife. I was a hopeless case and she entered sued for divorce. I got another job but didn't stop drinking. I kept on working. Although my physical condition was such as to have required extensive hospitalization for years. I hadn't had a peaceful night's sleep and never knew a clear head in the morning I had lost my wife and became resigned to going to bed some night and never waking again. Every drunkard has one or two friends who have entirely given up hope for him but I came to the point where I had none that is none but my mother and she devoted soul had tried everything with me through her people came to me and talked but nothing they said some were ministers and others good. Church members helped me a particle. I would agree with them when they were with me and as fast as they went away. I'd go after my bottle. Nothing suggested to me seemed to offer a way out. I was getting to a place where I wanted to quit drinking but didn't know how my mother heard of a doctor who had been having marked success with alcoholics. She asked me if I'd like to talk to him and I agreed to go with her. I had known of course of the various cures and after we had discussed the matter of my drinking fairly thoroughly. The doctor suggested that I go into the local hospital for a short time. I was very skeptical even after the doctor hinted there was more to his plan than medical treatment. He told me of several men whom I knew who had been relieved and invited me to meet a few of them who got together every week. I promised I would beyond deck at their next meeting but told him. I had little faith in any hospital treatments meeting night. I was as good as my word and met the small group. The doctor was there but somehow I felt quite outside the circle. The meeting was informal. Nevertheless I was little impressed. It is true they did know psalm singing nor was there any set ritual. But I just didn't care for anything religious if I had thought of God it all in the years of drinking. It was with a faint idea that when I came to die I would sort of fix things up with him. I say that the meeting did not impress me however I could see man whom I had known as good hardworking drunkards apparently in their right minds. But I just couldn't see where I came into the picture I went home stayed sober for a few days but was soon back to my regular quota of liquor every day some six months later after terrific binge in a Maudlin and helpless state. I made my way to the doctor's home. He gave me medical treatment and had me taken to the home of one of my relatives. I told him I had come to the point where I was ready for the remedy. The only remedy he sent to the members to see me they were both kindly to me told me what they had gone through and how they had overcome their fight with liquor they made it very plain that I had to seek God that I had to state my case to him and ask for help. Prayer was something I had long forgotten. I think my first sincere utterance must have sounded pretty weak. I didn't experience any sudden change and the desire for liquor wasn't taken away overnight but I began to enjoy meeting these people and began to exchange the liquor habit for something that has helped me in every way every morning i read a part of the Bible and ask God to carry me through the day safely. There is another part..

"Cement within the spaces between particles? And it's found in sedimentary rock or soil. So they are the word. CONCRETION is derived from the Latin meaning together and to grow so concretions form within layers of strata That have already been deposited. Detailed studies have demonstrated that concretions form after sediments are buried but before the sediment is fully liquefied during Diogenes Ass- so before rock formation happens. There's a period where these concretions are capable of being formed so typically they are formed when a mineral precipitates and cements sediment around a nucleus and that nucleus. This is often organic. So it's kind of like a Pearl. Yes whoo yes. oftentimes it can be like a leaf or a a tooth or a piece of a shell or a fossil and so for this reason fossil collectors commonly will break open the concretions in their search for fossilized animals malls implants specimens so the cat tiki boulders which are found on the north facing shore of Shag point Which is about twelve miles? South of where the Moi Rocky Boulders are found these concretions occur as both spherical cannonball sized and like a disc shaped Ktar Oval concretions and these often will contain the bones of mosasaurs and please sores. Wow did not know that. So it's probably just remnants of time travellers barbecues so the more rocky boulders are concretions created by the summation of the Cleo Cleo seen mud stone and they've been exhumed by coastal erosion so the main body of the boulder started forming and. What was marine mud near here? The surface of the Paleocene seafloor and then as there was erosion they became unearthed. The Parana Basin in South America has concretions. Chretien's containing fossilized fish preserved in three dimensions providing really unique snapshots of the past some of the fossils. Even show larger fish rush in the process of eating smaller fish right of fuck yeah so. Researchers at Nagoya University have analyzed dozens thousands of these concretions from three sites across Japan England and New Zealand. So it's like a little snapshot officious going along and he's looking for a meal. Any sees a smaller fish and he opens up his mouth. He's just about to swallow it and then what happens to make them three. Dimensional fossils calls that we find in these time travel balls. Well any number of things could have happened. You know. Maybe there was some sort of ecological change. Maybe he choked on the fish. I don't know okay but researchers at Nagoya University have analyzed these Chretien's and even though they were thought to have taken hundreds of thousands to millions of years to form instead they instead apparently grow at a very fast rate over several months or years. Wow so that might explain why fossils found inside are so well preserved okay. Have you ever found anything. Modern like beer cans or say plastic bags. They found things. Yes amber getting to that. So as as an animal or plant dies their remains become embedded in the layers deposited on the bottom of the lake or the sea and the decaying organic matter releases. Calcium that it reacts to form the mineral cow site the cal site then cements together the sand in the clay particles. This happens quickly before the animal or plant decays completely which helps pervert ver- preserved that fossil and sometimes a three D. fossil crazy. Yeah so it's almost like if you were to drop a droplet of glue mhm in sand and then the the form that would eventually come out of that. The decomposing cal site releasing organic body is the glue so more and more sediment is cemented together over time that forms the hard compact concretion around the fossil and and as soon as the formation of cow site stops there's no more calcium present in the sediment so it stops growing erosion then removes the softer sediment around the concretion John and leaves these balls so it kind of smooths it out when it when the erosion takes place. No there's really no smoothing it just grows that way it grows in in all directions at the same time. Some of the most unusual concretion nuclei that have been found are in an English coastal saltmarsh where they have found World War Two military shells and bombs and shrapnel inside concretions. Is there a special kind of concretion that are called side right concretions. So some of these could contain live munitions share some of them could explode blowed especially in certain parts of the world. Probably don't have to worry about it so much on the coast of New Zealand but we just don't know we don't know clear it could be ancient alien theorists say yes probably not. So that's concretions and that is how we happen to have the Moi Rocky Boulders. I thank you so much to Kelsey for that suggestion. Well I think it's a plausible theory. What you've put forward as to the cause of of these you you think that all of the research that I went through and the many many sites that I visited and the sources that I spoke about awesome possible plausible theory? Yes more likely ha that it was garbage from time travelers picnic. If if I were GONNA time travel I'd want to have a barbecue the fact I'm writing a short story based on time traveling barbecue and I'm thinking thinking of turning it into a musical tie 'em travelling in barbecue as thinking it'd be part of the overture.

We wait until the spring and we had the the annual springtime clearing of the poop festival.

"This is our one hundred ninety four th episode and over one hundred ninety four episodes. It's we've had messages from people. Little incidents of synchronicity perhaps elements of coincidence involving the show. Oh and here. Here's an example. This just came in moments ago from rb Lewis you guys. This is crazy. I work in a library and often listen to your podcast doc. Wallet Work Injustice. Jeff was talking about the Bruce Slash Brenda Story. I was putting away the book. The boy who was raised as a girl which is about that I had a little freak out and was very happy. Nobody around me heard me as I screamed. Oh my God very loudly. This isn't the first time I've listened to an episode that covers something that I had been thinking about but it was definitely the first time it happened in real full-time anyway. Love Your podcast. And I'm really bummed that I caught up and now I have to wait for the next episode by the way. If you've listened to every episode those of you who have accomplished that feet you now have. The you've been awarded the coveted title of Major Freak. which is something I made up on the spur of the moment? I was GONNA say major major free major freak is that Bob are below general free. That's that's slightly below okay. Yeah I get them. Confused actually should be the other way around because general freak is a general freak but a major freak is major freak. I guess it depends on the kind of scale you're using. It's very confusing much. Like being being a freak is any hustle. Welcome back. We're glad that you're here. It's nice to see you again and we are getting very excited because we're about to go on a cruise news but before that we We get to do a show Joe in Washington. DC which which were very excited about in tickets are available. If you'd like to join us at the DC comedy loft. The show is going to be on the twenty nine th which is Wednesday today and there are seats available. We would love to see you. It's the first show in our what you got for me. Live tour twenty twenty. So what are you got excited okay. Kelsey scientists message on Instagram. And she said Hi cat and death row question mark back and then asked if he if you actually got on instagram. And then she mentioned her experience with This topic and and and then I wrote her back and I was like yes thank you. I'm absolutely going to look into this. I will certainly not tell him. Okay so that's fair. I've stolen this idea in just for me. Ha Ha. We're GONNA talk about the the MOINA rocky boulders. The more Iraqi boulders are unusually large and and spherical boulders lying along the stretch of the COQ. Ha He beach on the west coast of New Zealand between more Iraqi and Hampton. We've done this one. No we have not your ass ace from making you fuck you Ass No we haven't done this one go ahead. You look so pleased with yourself. Yeah yeah just really enjoyed that. I love you did proceed. The formations are called concretions now. According to the mayor legends the origin of the boulders dates from the loss of the ouray. Take you to one of the large sailing canoes that came from Distant Hawaii he They explain them as the remains of the big melons and potatoes and baskets that had to be thrown overboard to save the sink. That ship from sinking okay was part part of the legend of this ship. Going down the canoe going down. And that's how these formations were created. How big are they? They varies we're getting getting there. They're supposed to be like fruit. Are they fruit. Sized is what I'm wondering. Some of them are fruits is some of them are car sized. So are they implying that that back in those days in the South Pacific islands that there were fruit. The size of Buick's. I don't think that's what they were implying. But but you know how ancient legends about the formations of certain things go It doesn't always line up with what we see and make take a lot of sense. The Earth is not a turtle shell but do we know definitively though that there were not automobile sized iced fruit. So wait you're asking me now is if at this time these people were familiar with fruit the size of of a Buick. And that's why okay. The reason I ask is because I had a dream that I ate an apricot the size of a Nissan Zahn Centra and I was thinking maybe it was another one of those synchronicity things like we hear about all the time involving this show. I'm just GONNA continue summit. Let's say that these are alien eggs which apparently had been laid in the ocean. I don't know you know it's one of those things that they aren't particularly unique alien eggs. No I'm feeling excessively playful. So there's a place called Valley of balls or Tory Ish Valley in Kazakhstan and there's a stretch of a semi desert landscape which is covered in concretions uh-huh ranging from tiny marble sizes two huge boulders. Again nearly the size of a Nissan sized apricot. It's crazy there. There's a place called rock city part of Kansas State Park featuring nearly two hundred large sandstone concretions claim to be the largest such collection on earth. And they're the roughly spherical boulders have grown to nearly thirty feet across so they grow they grow okay continue in the Australian outback. A crop of iconic concretions known as Devil's marbles or car Lou car Lou which literally translates to round boulders are connected to a variety of ancient legends and they hold great spiritual significance against for many of the aboriginal people and those stories are passed down through generations and I tried to find some of those but The word is that they don't don't share them with non Aborigine and so that's why I couldn't find them or you know. Maybe I'm just not very good at googling who else in southwest China near the the village of Gulu. There's a cliff that has a very mysterious talent which is They call it the cliff that lays eggs and it is is the cliffside where you will see these concretions becoming more and more exposed as the cliffside wears away. And then the concretions concretions fall to the Ground Clinton taking a dump yes. The cliff is taking a dump. And they're highly prized spiritual dumps that Ed people take home for good luck. Even the ancient Klerksdorp spheres found in South Africa. Some claim Are concretions. Are those the ones that are perfectly spherical in have like the grooves in them. That look like they've been machined in and they find. They have found those in stratus suggesting that they are millions of years old hundreds of millions of years old but yet they looked looked like they were made that they were machined. There are many people who suggest that that is evidence of time travel. And it's not it's probably a concretion. No it's it's time travel so in New Zealand the most striking aspect of these boulders that they are very large and and They range anywhere from about three feet across to anywhere seven feet across Most are spherical or almost spherical and those that aren't are slightly elongated parallel to the the land that they're on so they might look more like a biscuit so louis time travel spheres. I saw a youtube video. Where a guy saws them in half to see what's inside of them and they're full of sand sand detailed analysis of the fine grain rock using optical mineralogy x Ray Crystal Auto Griffey which? I don't think I I said that. Right and electron microprobe has determined that the boulders consist of mud fine silt and clay and they are cemented by cal site. Yeah that's what they say. But how did the finely machined grooves in the middle of them take I debated about including the Klerksdorp spheres ears in this story. Because we're talking about time travel though you can buy them on Ebay. The Degree Korea of sanitation varies from being a relatively weak in the interior of a boulder to quite hard on the outside rim there actually harder on the Outside than they are on the inside inside quite soft outside quite hard this comes from wikipedia the rock making up the bulk of the boulder is riddled and with large cracks. Called CEP terrier that radiate outward from a hollow core lined with calcium crystals the process that that created this area within the boulders and in other concretions remain an unresolved matter for which a number of possible explanations. The nation's have been proposed okay overall on a basic level. What is a concretion so a concretion is a hard compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral.
