Hammer J. Helmer, former mortgage originator and founder of OriginatorSuccess, began his sales career selling vacuum cleaners. Hammer pursued a mortgage career after finding that an originator led him on while buying his first condo. In 2008, he fell victim to the housing crisis but eventually found a position as a Business Development Manager at a large corporation in California. After discovering that he didn't like corporate America's ‘red tape', Hammer started OriginatorSuccess, which assists brokers with leads through Google and social media. OriginatorSuccess also offers free daily lock advice. Hammer's thoughts on the Fed rate hikes? The mortgage industry will now see the effect on rate sheets because investors and markets are trying to stay ahead of the rate hikes. “They kind of quietly gave us a one-two punch because we knew the tapering was going to happen,” Hammer says. “We're probably near some of the worst rates we'll see this year.” Hammer also believes that we won't see another housing crash due to the number of cash buyers and that consumers who are taking out mortgages are more qualified than before. Additionally, there is plenty of equity, allowing consumers the opportunity to consolidate debt. How can brokers succeed in 2022? “Sharpen your pencil and work on your sales scripts,” says Hammer. Brokers will need more flexibility, which is a massive benefit in a rising rate market. And, “increase your at-bats” with digital marketing. Embrace marketing your brokerage on social media, and opt for creating a Google Business Profile. Organic search traffic can obtain many quality leads and large loan sizes.

In any TTRPG, but perhaps especially D&D 5E, the DM runs the world and the players run their characters, who are built within the rules of the game. You should let players build the characters they want to play, but that doesn't mean you have to like it! It's OK to have a TTRPG PC build that pisses you off. Whether it's because they're unkillable, unhittable, undetectable, unsurvivable, or, like our listener question this week, they passively perceive absolutely frickin' everything! This may mean you have to change your game or not use pieces you wanted to use — like big dumb monster fights against casters with Banish. (“Which is BULL$#!7!” – DM Thorin.) But you can adjust both your own DMing and the player expectations of how their showcase abilities work in the game. In this episode, Thorin, Tony and Dave talk about how to handle builds that piss you off or at least challenge you as a DM. Along the way, they talk about builds, abilities and spells they've struggled with and how you can handle the situation without ruining the game for yourself or any of your players. 2:00: Extreme passives: A listener asks how to handle a D&D 5E PC with extremely high passive perception and investigation who expects all the secrets to be revealed automatically 6:00 Respect is a 2-way street: Just like the DM wants to run the world they built, the players want to play the characters they created 10:00 How we handle passive perception, use stats and dice rolls, and the problem with dice rolls 16:00 Is it unfair for a player to build a character so good in one area they automatically succeed? 21:00 The Observant Problem: Creating challenges and obstacles for builds that see all the secrets 26:00 DMing Sherlock Holmes: How do you reign the player in but make sure they're still having fun? 32:00 Player builds and abilities that piss us off — and why Banishment is a really poorly designed spell 45:00 Moon Druids, Barbarians, and dealing with ridiculous damage absorption 55:00 Challenging control and stealth character builds in D&D 5E 64:00 “If we're not encouraging clever ideas at the table, then what are we doing as DMs?” Adapting your DMing style to fit the character builds at your table 69:00 Final thoughts Support this podcast

In Season 6 of CPR's Connect the Dots podcast, we're discussing climate resiliency — that is, our ability to handle the stresses caused by climate disruption and adapt to changing conditions. The crisis may be stark, but there are solutions and pathways to a viable, sustainable future. Kicking off the season, host Rob Verchick digs into resiliency, real estate, and how climate change is beginning to impact people's decisions on where to live -- or move. Rob is joined by Daryl Fairweather, chief economist at Redfin; Philip Mulder, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business; Matt Kahn, Provost Professor of Economics at the University of Southern California and the author of Adapting to Climate Change; and Sean Hecht, CPR Member Scholar and Evan Frankel Professor of Policy and Practice at UCLA School of Law.
Do we underappreciate comic writing ? It's 400 years since the birth of France's great satirical playwright, Jean-Baptiste Pocquelin, better known by his pen-name Molière. Stendhal described him as “the great painter of man as he is” and his works have continued to be translated and performed on both the French and British stage with recent adaptations by Christopher Hampton, Anil Gupta and the Scottish poet and playwright, Liz Lochhead. She joins Anne McElvoy to help consider what we make of Molière now and how well his plays work in translation, alongside Clare Finburgh-Delijani, Professor of European Theatre at Goldsmiths, University of London and Suzanne Jones, a Junior Research Fellow in French at St Anne's College Oxford. Their discussion looks at various adaptations of Tartuffe, Moliere's play translated as The Hypocrite or The Imposter, which was first performed in 1664. Listen out for a Words and Music episode which picks out key speeches from plays including The Miser, the Imaginary Invalid, The School for Wives and the Misanthrope. You can hear that on BBC Radio 3 at 5.30pm Sunday 16th - followed by a new adaptation of The Miser scripted by Barunka O'Shaughnessy. You can also find out about the court music of Lully in Composer of the Week and there's a special edition of Radio 3's Early Music Show. Producer: Ruth Watts
Growing up, Paul Belcher's dad taught him that regardless of your circumstances, you never empower yourself to quit. Adapting, changing and following your dreams can lead to great things when you never give up. As a young college graduate, Paul bought Mountain Crane through grit and determination and just finding a way. Paul now runs the 15th largest crane company in North America. By recognizing and leveraging your personal assets, you'll be amazed at what you can do. You can learn your way into success. By challenging yourself, your family or company to be challenged every day, you teach resilience and responsibility. Those become assets and open doors for you and your loved ones. Paul touches on how his family handles social media and how we can be better at handling challenges of modern technology with our kids. Have a Great Week! Kirk Chugg & Cory Moore
Skills shortages have always been an issue for employers and have certainly come into sharp focus in recent months. Skills mapping, predicting future skills requirements and opening up talent pools via hybrid and remote working are just some of the solutions employers will be looking at in 2022. So what kind of strategies should talent acquisition and HR leaders be planning, and how can technology help? My first guest of the year is Vanessa Tierney, CEO of Abodoo. Vanessa's organisation recently surveyed 100 HR Directors and C-Level Executives from the world's best companies to work for and asked their opinion about their firm's working strategy, talent, workforce, and social infrastructure. Unsurprisingly skills were the number one issue. In the interview, we discuss: Attrition and skills shortages Opening up talent pools globally via remote and hybrid working How do you make people feel connected? Adapting working models Presenteeism How can employers better understand the skills in their workforce? Hard and soft skills matching. Predicting future skills requirements and understanding gaps Spotting opportunities in geographical skills clusters Driving inclusivity in talent identification The Metaverse Advice on selecting HR and Recruiting Technology What should we expect in the medium and long term future?

This week's show brought to you by: LMNT When coaching endurance runners of all levels to be their best, I always emphasize the need for proper hydration with the right balance of electrolytes. Most athletes I've coached are surprised to learn that their sodium needs are actually much higher than they expected and it's been hurting their performance. Part of the reason athletes need much more sodium than they think is not just because they lose electrolytes through their sweat, but also because athletes tend to eat very healthy diets. They've been told that salt is a bad thing in food and frequently don't get enough for their lifestyle. Much of the science of sodium is based on people who eat highly processed diets which also are very low in potassium. It could actually be the low potassium levels causing the issues that sodium has been blamed for! What is clear is that both sodium and potassium at the proper levels are essential for high performance (and for life in general!). That's why we partnered with LMNT to offer a free sample pack of their electrolyte mix. Head to drinklmnt.com/runnersconnect to get yours now. The Sample Pack includes 8 packets of LMNT (2 citrus, 2 raspberry, 2 orange, and 2 raw unflavored).

Say It Skillfully® is a show that helps you to benefit from Molly Tschang's expert guidance on the best possible ways to speak your mind at work in a positive and productive manner. In Episode 112, Molly is joined by Jillion Potter, captain of the 2016 USA women's rugby team. When she was 5, Jillion's parents split with a joint custody arrangement where her sister, twin brother and her moved each year. Adapting to different cities and different schools wasn't an option. Jillion shares how sports were integral to her own groundedness, and an early, unpleasant example of how bias from her high school basketball coach—who kicked a player off the team for coming out—affected her emotionally. She recalls growing up very low income–living on food stamps, going paycheck to paycheck, standing by the oven for heat…all fueling her deep sense of empathy for others. Jillion shares her unique and unlikely rugby journey: being a complete beginner in college, meeting her wife Carol through the sport, and ultimately becoming an Olympic captain. As tough off the field as she is on, not only was Jillion able to recover from a career-ending type of neck injury, she also recounts her experience of overcoming cancer twice, not letting fear keep her from re-joining the Olympic team and deciding to raise a child despite her illness and uncertainty of the future. Jillion also dives into her transition to the corporate world, and what being a mother means to her. Tune in to hear how going with the flow and doing the absolute best she can led Jillion to succeed in multiple facets of life. Jillion inspires all to know no boundaries and to commit to taking action so that all can be safe, seen and heard, and our true and best selves.

Mentorship is a sexy topic that gets thrown around in a lot of interviews, but this week's guest does more than just talk about it. We caught up with her JC Lapierre, the U.S. Chief Strategy and Communications Officer at PwC as she was wrapping up with a regular mentorship session that she offers to her team. If you really want to see change, make some changes to your schedule; allocate time to things that you say are important, such as molding a younger generation of leaders and do something about it.“You have to listen through informal channels. Before I jumped onto this [interview] I was in what I call a coffee chat with about 15 members of my team. I do these three times a week. I open a sign up for 15 people if [they] want to just have coffee and talk for an hour. It is one of my most effective listening channels. It takes time. It takes effort to listen, but if you really pay attention, my team tells me what I need to do. My team tells me how I need to communicate better. They help tell me what steps I need to take to make it better for them. And to help us have more impact on driving our results. But it all starts with taking the time and creating the spaces to listen.” JC leads by example through active listening to her team and their clients, and she does that through her actions as opposed to just rhetoric. In this episode learn more about the ways JC is focusing on stakeholder and audience personalization, a bit about the new partnerships at PwC, the need for good communication in a large organization, the shift in the ways that people are consuming media. Plus, JC provides us with an update on PwC's new strategy more than six months into its launch. Hear more from JC and PwC on this episode of Marketing Trends. Here we go! Main TakeawaysWe have Lost Valuable Strategic-Friction Time in Our Day: Amidst all of the disruption and change in the past couple of years, one of the things many people have lost is their commute time, whether that be flying to meetings in other states, or just driving or walking to the office. That friction in your day, used to allow you to reset yourself a bit in-between parts of your day and parts of your life. Having lost that means losing valuable time to be quiet, and think, and it's important to realize this loss and create intentional space in your day to let your brain wander.Focusing on Stakeholder and Audience Personalization: Stress less about making sure that every single media channel is broadcasting the exact same message. The more you can personalize your messaging for individual stakeholders and for individual audiences, the better. When we talk about personalization, it can mean swapping a customer's name into an email, but really you need to be going much deeper than that. Curating messages for customers and segments of your audience based on their other interests is the best way to get attention.Evolving Channel Landscape and Consumption: As things change rapidly on the media channel front, it's important even as a large company to stay nimble and willing to try new things and experiment in channels that you are not as familiar with. You can read stories and reports about what the best new tools to use are, but testing it out is the best way to find out what works for your own brand and message.Key Quotes"It all starts with listening, no matter what role I've been in. A I've had like nine lives, nine careers in my time at PwC, but one of the most important things anyone can do in any relationship, personal or professional, is to truly listen and to ask really effective open-ended questions, without judgment, questions without assumptions, embedded assumptions, and to really try to understand what is it that you aspire to do? What are the impediments or obstacles to getting there? What's the opportunity? And then when you've listened to a whole bunch of different data points and a whole bunch of different perspectives, you can start to build.”“You have to listen through informal channels. Before I jumped onto this [interview] I was in what I call a coffee chat with about 15 members of my team. I do these three times a week. I open a sign up for 15 people if [they] want to just have coffee and talk for an hour. It is one of my most effective listening channels. It takes time. It takes effort to listen, but if you really pay attention, my team tells me what I need to do. My team tells me how I need to communicate better. They help tell me what steps I need to take to make it better for them. And to help us have more impact on driving our results. But it all starts with taking the time and creating the spaces to listen.” “We call this the ADAPT framework. There's five forces that are pushing on the world in significant ways. First is Asymmetry. We see asymmetry primarily in the income inequality gap, but you see it in other ways in which you see haves and have nots. D [stands for] disruption that gets at both technological disruption, as well as climate disruption. The second ‘A' in ADAPT is age. In the U.S. we have an aging population; we have fewer workers than we used to and that trend is going to continue. [This means] we are going to have fewer people to work in the workforce. The P is for polarization, I think we all see it's happening within our four walls; it's happening across the globe, but that increased polarization is growing. [Finally,] the T is for trust.”“The more we focus on stakeholder and audience and personalization, the easier it becomes. The team doesn't have to keep recreating stories or recreating what they are that they're doing [across every channel.] We have to just be consistent, simple and measured in terms of how we bring our audiences along.”“Our people are some of our best brand ambassadors.

[Example,] the work [we did] with Hulu and streaming is outperforming all of the metrics that we set out for it. We are [even] starting a Tik Tok channel.

Episode 5 of the Fit Mother Project Podcast is all about adapting to weather and how different kinds of environmental pressures impact our health routines. When winter sets in, it gets dark earlier and the temperature drops. And for those in areas where things get really cold, wintertime is when a lot of people get into trouble with their health. They're often less active. They're not outside as much. They're eating more sugary foods. But, these are symptoms, not the root cause. It's a symptom of people not being able to adapt their health routines to the new changes and pressures of a colder climate in a darker environment. But you can adapt your health routine to deal with any kind of weather! In this episode you'll learn: How to establish a personal health routine. How to adjust that routine as your environment changes. Why you need to focus on sleep, movement, and nutrition — and how to do it. The importance of vitamin D and how to get more of it.

At about 8 in the morning on March 22, 1622, warriors of the chiefdoms making up the Powhatan confederacy attacked the settlements of the colony of Virginia. By nightfall, the devastating attacks had killed between a quarter and a third of the English settlers, destroyed many settlements and farms—including their food supplies, and forced the survivors to take shelter in fortified locations where they were unable to grow their food because of groups of warriors who continued the attack. Suddenly, just when Virginia seemed to be on the verge of success, it was thrown back into the position where it had been 13 years before when it was just a few hundred people within the palisade surrounding the settlement of Jamestown—under attack, and on the verge of the starvation. It was the beginning of a brutal war that would last for years, the second fought between the native of Virginia and the English interlopers. With me to explain the long life of the man who planned the attack of 1622 is James Horn, President and Chief Officer of the Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation, which is affiliated with Preservation Virginia, a private non-profit organization and a leader in historic preservation. Horn is the author of numerous books, from Adapting to a New World: English Society in the Seventeenth Century Chesapeake, to his most recent A Brave and Cunning Prince: The Great Chief Opechancanough and the War for America. While this is conversation will be about one of the most critical moments in the history of North America, and about one of its most fascinating unknown personalities, it's also a conversation in our continuing series on historical thinking. As you'll see, James Horn's book deals with many questions of evidence. And evidence is the answer to the question “How do I know what I claim to know about my question?” As you'll hear, that is a question that James Horn had to ask himself many times as he worked on this book.

A good customer experience requires more than just making the sale. It's taking a look and analyzing every little detail that pushes them further and further down the funnel... If you design it the right way, the customer experience should be serving the customer first while giving you the conversions you desire. As an experienced marketer Jonathan Rowe, the CMO of nCino, a cloud banking solutions company, has welcomed the challenge of working in a highly regulated industry, servicing big banks. “From a customer perspective, make sure that they're getting the most value from what they purchased from your product. That's being proactive and giving them that information. It's making sure you can add. We work with our institutions. I've had marketing conversations with CMOs of banks, just because they want to learn some of our best practices. [Think] how can your organization go above and beyond. And then help infuse your brand with your customers; make them help sell your product.”On this episode of Marketing Trends, Jonathan looks back at the exponential growth that he experienced at nCino. He looks back at his academic roots that he says laid the foundation for him that helped spur that growth. But behind the numbers and metrics, what separates nCino and its marketing department from its competitors is its company culture, and Jonathan and I dive into how he's built a culture, what pillars he leans on and how he thinks about hiring and recruiting talent. Learn more about the way he approaches team building, thought leadership, and good communication up next on Marketing Trends. Main TakeawaysTransitioning from Academia to Marketing: The skills that it takes to be a great academician are more transferable to a career in marketing than you might first think. When you look at marketing as ‘education' things begin to fall into place. Even if you're not in academics, looking at the craft of marketing from a slightly different perspective, instead of just focusing on converting customers, maybe a focus on educating them will actually drive more conversions.Looking Like a Billion-Dollar Brand: Even if you're at the very beginning of your business journey as a start-up, fake it till you make it! Presenting your brand like a top-dollar player from day one sets a tone of excellence for your team, your business, and your customers. Everything you do, every piece of communication, marketing materials, conversations, and attitude all should reflect the top-dollar attitude you want at your company.Use the Channels and Communication Styles your Customers Prefer: Maybe long emails don't perform well anymore by marketing industry standards, but maybe your customers, in your niche market, still like to receive and read longer messages in their inbox. Adapting your marketing channels and even messaging for your audience shows them that you're listening and will only enrich your interactions with them.Key Quotes“'I never expected an academic background to transfer to a startup and now high growth company. But marketing is really about educating, right? You're educating a lot of stakeholders, whether it's partners, whether it's potential clients, whether it's customers, whether it's investors, whether it's your employees. And so that to me was a very early realization that really it's about education.”“First and foremost, who are you selling to? Make sure you understand your target market. It sounds so simple, but when you understand who you're selling to, you can then ask yourself the next two or three questions, which is, ‘Where do those people go? What do they look at? What are their interests?' And that's even before you get to, ‘What is your message?'”“‘Everything we do represents a billion-dollar brand.' I literally put that on the wall because I think this is true of anybody, even if you're a small business. What do you aspire to be? How do you want your employees thinking about every day when they walk in or take a phone call or make a product or do a service delivery, how do you want them thinking about your business? One of the things you realize in marketing is you don't own the brand. You're a steward of the brand. You may help set direction for the brand, but your employees own the brand, your customers own the brand. All your partners are invited like all these different people. In those early years, I wanted us to look and feel like a billion-dollar company.” “[Go] back to understanding your audience, what channels do they engage with? In a lot of industries, you may say, ‘I'm not going to write a document that's longer than two pages because nobody's going to read it.' That's true universally, but I think in banking, folks are still reading a good deal of information. They also like research; so for us, from a customer perspective [how can we] be a thought leader. It's really understanding our ability to not go to a bank and say, Hey, we know how to do things better than you, because obviously you never want to do that. But to go in, challenge and share research and share data, because now it's your point. Now that we've built up 1100 customers, we're learning a lot about the industry. And how do we share that back to the point about what we talked about with Salesforce, kind of creating these, this community of raving and nCino fans, where again, we entered an industry where a lot of the banks are competitors and they used to never talk to each other. And here we are, you know, almost 10 years later.” “From a customer perspective, one, make sure that they're getting the most value from what they purchased from your product. That's being proactive and giving them that information. It's making sure you can add. We actually work with our institutions. I've had marketing conversations with CMOs of banks, just because they want to learn some of our best practices. [Think] how can your organization go above and beyond. And then help infuse your brand with your customers; make them help sell your product.”BioJonathan Rowe serves as nCino's Chief Marketing Officer, helping fuel growth for the worldwide leader in cloud banking. Jonathan and the Marketing Team are responsible for the Company's global branding, public relations, conferences, creative design, digital, and product marketing functions. Jonathan also oversees nCino's Recruiting Team and all employer and culture branding initiatives.

As it says in his bio, Brent “had it all and lost it all…” as what happened led to Brent and his family's story (and the story of their company National Prearranged Services Inc. (NPS) — being an episode of CNBC's “American Greed” documentary series. In today's episode, Brent tells his “favorite mistake” story about how trusting his dad, who had already been convicted for fraud, led to him getting into a lot of hot water with the feds… with many lessons learned in the process that he's kind enough to share with us today. We talk about that story and other topics including: Was your dad forthcoming about that first conviction? Was the CNBC story that accurate? Crimes and intent vs mistakes?? What the five rules that helped you survive prison that can be used in everyday life? What happens when your worst fear becomes your reality? Nothing is ever as bad as your mind makes it out to be. What has your life been like since you got out of prison?

This episode welcomes Julie Stamm, author, MS advocate, and proud mom of Jack to the podcast. Julie, who wrote the recently-released book, Some Days, A Tale of Love, Ice Cream and My Mom's Chronic Illness, shares with us her insight on raising a young child while having MS. Her thought-provoking book, written from a child's perspective, proves that through a child's eyes, things may not be exactly as they seem, and the pressure you may be putting on yourself to perform for your child is likely an unrealistic, self-imposed expectation. We hope you walk away from this episode with an enlightened feeling of relief, knowing that in the end, all your child needs is your time and your love.

I recently had the chance to read the book, “The Career Toolkit.” The reason this book really resonated with me is because of my journey transitioning from within the corporate world and then out of the corporate world. As an entrepreneur this should mean everything to you. Where is it you want to take your career? What is it that you want to build in this career path? What are the tools that you need in order to achieve these goals. In this episode, I have the author himself, Mark Herschberg, who is a CTO, an MIT instructor, author, and speaker. “Your career plan is not just your title.” IN THIS EPISODE How Mark ended up where he is now when he started as an engineer and physicist. What skills companies are saying they want in employees. Why are these skills not being taught? Adapting to consumer demand. The disconnect in schools. The importance of setting a career plan. Misunderstandings about career plans. Reasons people don't make career plans and how to overcome them. Why you should create dynamic tools and review them often. How to create a business plan and how often you should go back to it. Mark's app and how it can help you.

On this episode of the East Meets West Hunt podcast, Beau Martonik is joined by his Dad, Joe Martonik. Joe is well-known locally for consistently killing mature bucks every single year with a bow on public land in Pennsylvania. This year, he shot a once-in-a-lifetime mountain buck after 6 years of history with the buck and over 21 days of continuous hunting for him this season alone. We discuss finding this deer years ago, attempting to find his core area, adapting in the middle of the season, still-hunting him from the ground, staying mobile, and the setup for the final encounter.

Before we get started, I want to share a few things about the value with this week's episode. Over the last 20+ months, the world has been in a unique place. There's been a record number of people quitting their jobs, and our country's supply chain has been challenged in extreme ways. Even with these challenges, there are men and women across the United States committed to buckling down and producing the things we utilize daily. Even with all of these obstacles, there has been tremendous demand and increased opportunity. My guest today is Andrew Green. Andrew Green is CEO of Parkway Products. Parkway is a national injection molding company across the United States and Mexico. After spending the first 16 years of his career with the multi-billion dollar publicly listed company Sonoco Andrew decided to take a different path where he wanted to take some risks and become a CEO one day. This is a jam-packed high-value episode where you'll learn: What it's like having a significant life experience and re-evaluating is this the path you want to be on the rest of your life. What about the people that have a passion for manufacturing. Without us, the service economy wouldn't exist. There's a benefit of being backed by private equity. When the model works, you can't grow fast enough. Adapting to change. Why robotics and automation creates more opportunity for those willing to learn and evolve And much more!
