We know, we know: it's Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but in addition, #HANUKKAH is super early this year!  So, your favorite stylist, Holly Katz, has hand-picked some very fashionable gift ideas to share with y'all! #OneForTheJews Introducing the Fashion Crimes Podcast Hanukkah Gift Guide, packed with stylish items from our #BestieBrands: women-owned, independent designers and creator brands who live and breathe the slow-fashion movement.  We want you to #ShopSmall this year (and always, duh)! Oh, and don't let us forget to tell you at the end of the show: we have a Hanukkah Gift Giveaway event going on right now on the Fashion Crimes Podcast Instagram account, running through Nov. 28, 2021. Stay tuned for how to enter!  Anyhoo, Holly has been busy scouting one-of-a-kind fashion items that are “Holly-Approved” and definitely not fashion crimes - nor gifts that will ever be exchanged or shoved in the back of a closet.  In this week's episode, we introduce 5 of our #BestieBrand designers and Holly's recommendation for the best gifts ever: #1.  ALLY SHOES, NYC  Created by designer Samantha Dong in NYC, these shoes are made for walking! After suffering from heel pain and a serious hiking injury, Samantha had a difficult time finding comfortable and stylish shoes. So, she partnered with a podiatrist, a former innovative director at Nike, and a very talented designer to start this brand and create a truly pain-free high heel that still looks stylish! Ally Shoes gorgeous styles - which include a classic pump, a kitten heel, a strap heel, and the wildly popular block heels - also offer many different sizes, with four different widths from narrow to extra wide. Shoe sizes run from 4 through 12, with half sizes, so anyone with any kind of foot shape can really find their perfect fit in our shoes. Of course, we cannot recommend gift ideas without trying them on for you to check for fit and function. Holly fell in love with their style, of course. But as you will see if you visit her Instagram account, Holly is literally dancing and twirling in these amazing shoes.  SHOP at https://www.ally.nyc #2. CRISCARA JEWELRY Second on our Gift Guide is modern, bohemian jewelry for jet setters, dream chasers and magic makers, created by designer Crista Grasso. Holly met the glorious Crista in Arizona at the She Podcasts LIVE event this fall - and Holly knew instantly that this jewelry would be perfect for her clients, to give as gifts - and for all y'all!! Criscara's very affordable and sexy jewelry designs are 100% made in the USA and are a very high-quality fashion line that she created to help people express their individuality. Crista feels jewelry is a strong part of self-expression. So, when she wasn't finding anything that represented her, she started creating items for herself, and the rest is history. Holly is really drawn to the boho, desert, festival, free spirit vibe. Crista loves layering necklaces, and she is well known for her hand- and foot-chains, which are some of her best sellers. If you picture a bracelet connected to a ring and an anklet connected to a toe ring, that's the style she represents...easy, fun, boho and free-spirited. If you're heading out to a networking meeting, and you're shaking someone's hand, when you have these amazing hand-chains on, it's a great conversation starter.    SHOP at https://criscara.com/   AMANDA PEARL Amanda Pearl jewelry is a women founded, women run, sustainable fine jewelry brand providing revolutionary pricing and sustainable luxury. They are also famous for their celebrity-coveted clutches often worn on the red carpet by Meryl Streep, Michelle Obama and more!  The Amanda Pearl team crafts lasting, fine jewelry every day of the year, which results in 60% off of traditional retail prices every day. There is no need to wait for sales. You get the best price every day! Their manufacturing and business models have cut out the middleman, and all of the markups that come with traditional retail, so they offer customers real, fair prices. Their chic, fashion-forward jewelry is proudly crafted in New York City using recycled gold and ethical diamonds. They are trying to create as small a footprint as possible, making small collections throughout the year so that there's less waste by not mining metal or stones - and just being as gentle as they can on our planet. #motherearth This business strategy also allows the brand to give 10% to a different cause each quarter. Right now they are giving to the Trust for Public Lands, who does amazing work creating and maintaining green spaces for us all to enjoy. SHOP at https://amandapearl.com/ 4.) VIENNE MILANO Vienne Milano is the first luxury hosiery brand and online boutique dedicated to thigh high stockings. Their products are made in Italy for women who want to reveal their style and confidence by being elegant, playful and sexy in every occasion. Stockings are a true fashion complement, as they can define the outfit - legs are a canvas for color and texture, thigh highs allow you to use it. Yet Vienne Milano is not just about making a fashion statement: by wearing thigh highs, a woman gains a little glamorous secret that provides her personality with an extra boost. Vienne created her brand because she couldn't find thigh highs that would stay up on her leg. She used to work in corporate America and was trying to find stockings that were comfortable to wear to work, that were appropriate for work, and at a price point that she could afford to wear everyday, as well. She had traveled to Europe since her teen years, and Italy was the first country in Europe she spent time in. She knew this style of hosiery existed in Europe, especially in Italy, so she spent three months there, almost 10 years ago now, sourcing products, and launched the business in 2011.    Holly loves these stockings – and let us tell you – there ARE NOT your mother's panty hose!! They are much more comfortable and come in various patterns, levels of opaque-ness and a variety of leg bands for comfort and style. Holly says they are GOR-GINA!!! And they are extremely luxurious and indulgent. #sochic   Shop at https://viennemilano.com/    PARIDAEZ Paridaez designs are modern, modular and minimalistic clothing essentials for life's everyday adventures. Everyday can be an adventure— that's why each piece of the Paridaez clothing lines can change into completely different articles of clothing.    Allison Daroie, the CEO and founder of Paridaez, designed this line with utility in mind, so, you can easily transition from a professional setting, workout, evenings out, and it's great for travel. She taught herself to design, learned the production process, and bootstrapped the company because she wants other women to be ready for anything!   Holly is absolutely enthralled with this Boston-based brand because it is super functional and fun: she can put on one of the shirts, and then turn it around backward, where it becomes a different top.  She can then put it around her waist, and it becomes a skirt! What??    Even better – Allison's clothes look amazing on everyone. Mainly because of the fabric they have chosen. Their main material is ponte, which is a rayon/nylon/lycra blend. The ponte knit is very opaque and always flattering, but still has a lot of stretch. It's very breathable, and looks really good in any setting. It's machine washable, driver, dryer, safe wicks, moisture.  Shop at https://paridaez.com/ We are so grateful to each and every one of these BADASS BOSS LADIES, and the time they were able to spend with us on this episode.

For regular listeners of the show, you'll have noticed it's been a bit quiet here since Season 4 launched. Instead of the usual weekly series, only the first two episodes were published, and then silence. I sincerely apologize for this, it was definitely not the intent. Here's what happened. As you'll know, the show features podcasters opening up about their personal stories. These are stories that may not have been heard before in public, and can be very raw and emotional, and I sincerely thank all of my guests so far for being so open with their stories. This can lead to emotions in me coming to the fore, when the struggles of a guest are ones I've been through myself, or loved ones around me have. Some of you may know this about me from an earlier episode where I spoke with my wife, but I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety around 4 years ago. For the majority of the time, it's something that I can manage, but now and again the shadows block out the light. This has been particularly true with Covid, and its impact on all our lives. Everything has changed, and sometimes it's hard to see where all this might end. Especially when you have two young kids that you're doing everything you can to protect them, in a world where not everyone wants to be part of that protective community. Anyhoo... as a result of the increased emotions from the stories shared by my guests, and sheer fight or flight exhaustion in trying to keep my family safe, I decided to take a mental health break where I could focus on the lighter side of life. Summer at the beach, getting out on the lake, experiencing the beautiful natural surroundings of where we live, etc. And it was exactly what I needed to refresh both my creative and personal energy. So, Podcaster Stories will return very early in the New Year. I have some amazing guests lined up, and each one has an incredibly inspiring story to share.  In the meantime, to keep the podcasting juices flowing, I've just launched a new show called Memories of 3DO, which looks at the history of a gaming console classic that was ultimately doomed to fail. This is a fun little project for me, and may lead to others in a series. The show is snackable content, with each episode less than 5 minutes long. If classic video games are your thing, you can find out more at http://3dopodcast.com/ (3dopodcast.com) Thanks so much for being part of the Podcaster Stories community, and thanks for your messages and emails asking if everything was okay, I sincerely appreciate them.  Until the next time, stay safe and take care.

HPR3473: My journey into Amateur Radio

Hacker Public Radio

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 24, 2021


Opening Hello, my name is Dave, and welcome to another exciting episode of Hacker Public Radio. It's been a couple of years since my last episode, and I know that HPR is running low on shows. As I have had this one in planning for some time now, I though this was the right time to get it finished. Main At the time of recording this, I've been an Amateur Radio licence holder for 6 months. I took the notion of studying and applying for my Foundation licence (the first of three stages to a Full licence) when I read a blog post by Jon Spriggs G7VRI, back in March, entitled Might Amateur Radio be a hobby for you? I saw a presentation by Jon at OggCamp in 2018 in Sheffield where he gave a whistle-stop tour of what Amateur Radio actually is, and how easy it is to get involved in it. As a bit of background, I was quite involved in the CB Radio scene back in the late 80s and early 90s - I was introduced to CB by my dad, whose handle was "Screwball", in the 70s... he had a CB rig in his car since as far back as I can remember. I picked up the hobby from him, by actually liberating him of his rig when he stopped using it. Unfortunately it got stolen from my car. C'est la vie. Yes, my handle back then was "The Love Bug" - in fact, it was whilst looking for an alternative to "Kool Kat" as a handle that I first used the moniker "The Love Bug" - probably in the mid-80s - and it just stuck. So, after reading Jon's blog post, and doing some research into Amateur Radio myself, a whole bunch of things happened at the same time: I bought my first radio - a Baofeng UV-5RTP [Amazon UK], I joined the Radio Society of Great Britain (not a requirement, but I would recommend it), signed up for Essex Ham's Foundation Training Course (not a requirement, but strongly recommended as it's geared around the examination, and it's free!) The training took 3 weeks (in my own time), and I applied for my exam as soon as the training was complete. The exam was an hour long, under as close to exam conditions as an online exam would allow, and I was told by the online system that I'd passed as soon as I submitted my answers. It then took a few days to get the confirmation of passing (and a certificate) in the post, which then allowed me to apply to Ofcom (the authority for the radio spectrum here in the UK) for my licence and callsign. I was able to choose the suffix of my callsign, and - as BUG was taken - I opted for TLB (for The Love Bug), and thus my callsign is - currently - M7TLB (Mike Seven Tango Lima Bravo). I say "currently" - I'm not allowed to change my callsign, however the callsign is specific not only to me but also to the fact that I'm a Foundation Licence holder. Therefore, when I go for my Intermediate and then Full licence, I'll get new callsigns for each one, each superseding the previous. Anyhoo, once I got my Foundation licence, I went out that Sunday to log some contacts, or QSOs. So I parked up at a high point near to here, put a small aerial on the roof of the car (so that I didn't warm up my head when transmitting), and started calling CQ - essentially a way of saying "I want to talk to somebody" - "Seek You". As part of the licence conditions, you are only permitted to make contact with other identifiable and identified amateurs... general broadcasts to whomever might be listening are prohibited. Except when calling CQ to initiate that contact. So I'd call out something akin to "CQ, CQ, this station Mike Seven Tango Lima Bravo, Mike Seven Tango Lima Bravo Portable, calling CQ." The "Portable" indicates that I'm not at my home station location. It's also a good indication that my transmission might be variable due to the portable nature of the station. I was transmitting using 8 watts of power, two watts fewer than the limit of my license, but significantly lower than the 400 watts that I could be using as a Full licence holder, so my hopes weren't high. My first contact was with a chap just outside Caistor, Lincolnshire... about 38 miles direct from where I was based. He was also using a portable station, but with a directional beam antenna, meaning that both transmission and reception from his end was able to focus on my direction. So yeah, impressed! My second contact was also a portable station, located at a high-point by the Woodhead Pass, in Penistone, about 18 miles direct from where I was. This contact was the gift that kept on giving, as there were two other portable stations at the same location, so I got three contacts in the log for that one. Things went quiet after that one, so after a further 5 calls out, I figured that was my lot. Still, I was happy with four QSOs on my first day! Later the same day, I went out for my daily constitutional, so I figured I'd take the radio - with the standard short rubber-duck antenna, and an earpiece - with me. At least that way, I wouldn't look too silly, or a target to be fair. My intention was just to bounce around the frequencies and listen to conversations, rather than put out any CQs myself... I was in a residential area, so I didn't want to draw attention to myself. Whilst listening, I heard someone calling CQ and inviting respondents to a different frequency, so I followed and listened. There were a couple of contacts already there that I couldn't hear, so I waited for the initial contact to finish working the first. When he put out a call for whomever originally responded, I jumped in with my callsign, thinking that there was no way he would hear me. Consider that I was walking around town, in a reasonably built-up area, with probably the worst antenna I could have chosen for distance, and he wasn't exactly coming through strong. He responded to me directly, asking me to standby whilst he worked the other station that responded. Well, I was shocked to hear him say to the other contact that he was in East Yorkshire, about 33 miles from here! He was using a directional beam antenna which was pointing due west... whereas I am south-west of his location, so when you consider the other things I mentioned, the fact that he was also not pointing his antenna directly at me I was completely amazed that I was able to hold this relatively decent quality conversation with someone that far away. Well pleased was I. Cost-wise, I should warn that Amateur Radio can be an expensive hobby, but it absolutely doesn't have to be. At a bare minimum, to get me "on the air" I bought the Baofeng (£42.99), and paid for my Foundation examination (£27.50), so a little over £70 overall. I actually bought a number of accessories for the radio, and joined the RSGB, but these are in no way required expenses. The standard radio on its own is more than sufficient to gain some decent contacts, as I hope I've proven with the success from that Sunday. Since then, I have bought an HF (or High Frequency) radio from India, it's a low-power model (or QRP) which is unlikely to get very far, but there are transmission modes that I can use that are specifically intended for low-power operation. My next big thing is to get an antenna up in the back garden along with a decent tuner so that I can actually use that radio!! By the time this episode goes out, I will have started an intensive course with OARC (Online Amateur Radio Community) which is a UK-based club - a more fantastic bunch of people you are not likely to find - so I'll be able to change my callsign to one beginning 2E0 or 2E1, and be able to use up to 50W to transmit, even though I don't have any equipment capable to transmitting 50W - yet! I point you to the excellent Ham radio, QSK series on HPR where a number of correspondents have recorded shows about Amateur Radio that you may find interesting. I'm putting this episode into the same series. Questions Are you an Amateur Radio operator? Let me know. Call to action Drop me an email to hpr@thelovebug.org, I'm on Facebook and Twitter as thelovebug, or leave a comment on this episode, or record your own episode in response. At the time of recording this, HPR is low on shows, if you have any shows in progress, or something burning in your mind, get it recorded. Find out more over at hackerpublicradio.org. Close So, that's it for today... thanks for listening. Wherever you are in the world, stay safe. Come back again tomorrow for another exciting episode on Hacker Public Radio. 73 de M7TLB

About CourtneyCourtney Nash is a researcher focused on system safety and failures in complex sociotechnical systems. An erstwhile cognitive neuroscientist, she has always been fascinated by how people learn, and the ways memory influences how they solve problems. Over the past two decades, she's held a variety of editorial, program management, research, and management roles at Holloway, Fastly, O'Reilly Media, Microsoft, and Amazon. She lives in the mountains where she skis, rides bikes, and herds dogs and kids.Links: Verica: https://www.verica.io Twitter: https://twitter.com/courtneynash Email: courtney@verica.io TranscriptAnnouncer: Hello, and welcome to Screaming in the Cloud with your host, Chief Cloud Economist at the Duckbill Group, Corey Quinn. This weekly show features conversations with people doing interesting work in the world of cloud, thoughtful commentary on the state of the technical world, and ridiculous titles for which Corey refuses to apologize. This is Screaming in the Cloud.Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by our friends at Jellyfish. So, you're sitting in front of your office chair, bleary eyed, parked in front of a powerpoint and—oh my sweet feathery Jesus its the night before the board meeting, because of course it is! As you slot that crappy screenshot of traffic light colored excel tables into your deck, or sift through endless spreadsheets looking for just the right data set, have you ever wondered, why is it that sales and marketing get all this shiny, awesome analytics and inside tools? Whereas, engineering basically gets left with the dregs. Well, the founders of Jellyfish certainly did. That's why they created the Jellyfish Engineering Management Platform, but don't you dare call it JEMP! Designed to make it simple to analyze your engineering organization, Jellyfish ingests signals from your tech stack. Including JIRA, Git, and collaborative tools. Yes, depressing to think of those things as your tech stack but this is 2021. They use that to create a model that accurately reflects just how the breakdown of engineering work aligns with your wider business objectives. In other words, it translates from code into spreadsheet. When you have to explain what you're doing from an engineering perspective to people whose primary IDE is Microsoft Powerpoint, consider Jellyfish. Thats Jellyfish.co and tell them Corey sent you! Watch for the wince, thats my favorite part.Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by our friends at VMware. Let's be honest—the past year has been far from easy. Due to, well, everything. It caused us to rush cloud migrations and digital transformation, which of course means long hours refactoring your apps, surprises on your cloud bill, misconfigurations and headache for everyone trying manage disparate and fractured cloud environments. VMware has an answer for this. With VMware multi-cloud solutions, organizations have the choice, speed, and control to migrate and optimizeapplications seamlessly without recoding, take the fastest path to modern infrastructure, and operate consistently across the data center, the edge, and any cloud. I urge to take a look at vmware.com/go/multicloud. You know my opinions on multi cloud by now, but there's a lot of stuff in here that works on any cloud. But don't take it from me thats: VMware.com/go/multicloud and my thanks to them again for sponsoring my ridiculous nonsense.Corey: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud. I'm Corey Quinn. Periodically, websites like to fall into the sea and explode. And it's sort of a thing that we've accepted happens. Well, most of us have. My guest today is Courtney Nash, Internet Incident Librarian at Verica. Courtney, thank you for joining me.Courtney: Hi, Corey. Thanks so much for having me.Corey: So, I'm going to assume that my intro is somewhat accurate, that we've sort of accepted that sites will crash into the sea, the internet will break, and then everyone tears their hair out and complains on Twitter, assuming that's not the thing that fell over this time—Courtney: [laugh].Corey: —but what does an Internet Incident Librarian do?Courtney: Yeah, I'll come back to the first part about how—some people have accepted it and some people haven't, I think is the interesting part. So technically, I think my official real title is, like, research analyst or something really boring, but I have a background in the cognitive sciences and also in technology, and I'm really—have always been fascinated by how these socio-technical systems work. And so as an Internet Incident Librarian, I am doing a number of things to try to better understand—both for myself and, obviously, the company I work for, but for the industry as a whole—what do we really know about how incidents happen, why they happen, when they happen, and what do we do when they happen? And how do we learn from that? So, one of the first things that I'm doing along those lines is actually collecting a database of all of the public write-ups of incidents that happened at companies that are software-related.So, there's already bodies of work of people who collect airline incidents and other kinds of things. And we don't have that [laugh] as an industry, which I think is—I want to solve that problem because I think other industries that have spent some time introspecting about why things fall down, or when things fall down and how they fall down. Take the airline industry for example; planes don't really fall out of the sky very often.Corey: No. When it does, it makes news and everyone's scared about flying, but at the same time, it's yeah, do you have any idea how many people die in car crashes in a given hour?Courtney: Yeah, yeah. And we'll come back to how the media covers things in a minute because that is definitely something I have opinions about. But, I'm not trying to say I want to create the NTSB of the internet; I don't think that's quite the same thing, and I really want something in the spirit of software, and the internet, and open-source that's more collaborative and it's very open to all of us. So, the first step is to just get them in one place. There is no single place where you could go and say, “Oh, where all of the X incident reports? Where all the ones that Microsoft's written, and also Amazon, or Google, or, you know, whoever.”Corey: They have them, but they hide them so thoroughly. It turns out that they don't really put that in big letters on their corporate blog with links to it. And when you look at one incident report, they don't say, “Here, look at our previous incident reports.” They really—Courtney: Yeah.Corey: —should but no one does.Courtney: And I think that's fascinating because there's a precedent. So, there's two precedents, and I just gave you basically one side of the two, which is, the airline industry has done this and it's not like people don't fly, right? So, a lot of internet companies, a lot of software-based companies, seem to be afraid of what their customers, or what the stock market, or what folks will think. Mind you, these are publicly traded [laugh] airline companies. People aren't going to stop using Amazon just because you give more of this information out.And so I think that piece is—I would love to see that stop being the case. Because the flip side of the coin is that this is a rising tide lifts all boats kind of thing, which granted, not all companies agree on, especially really big ones because their boats already mowing all the little ones out of the ocean. But that's another story.Corey: Sure, but also, it's easy to hide an outage. “Our site is down for you can say three days. Great, if a customer didn't try to access the site at all during those three days, was the site really down in the first place?”Courtney: Oh, the tree in the forest of internet outages. Yes, it's true, although I think that companies are—they know that people go complain on social media, right? I think there's more and more of that happening now. It's not like you can hide it as easily as you could have before Twitter or Instagram or—Corey: Right. Whereas a plane falls out of the sky, generally it's one of those things that people notice.Courtney: Yeah. Even if you weren't interested in that flight at all.Corey: Right. When it lands in your garden, you sort of have a comment on this.Courtney: [laugh]. Yeah. Pieces fall out of the sky. That has happened. But I think the other flip side of the coin I already mentioned is the safety of airline industry has increased so significantly over the past, you know, whatever, 30, 40 years because of this concerted effort.And the other piece of it, then, as an industry, as technologists, as people who use software to run their businesses, some of those things are now safety-critical. And this comes back to the whole software is running the world now. Planes now actually could fall out of the sky because of software, not just because of hardware failures. And nuclear power plants are [laugh] run by software, and your electronic grid, and your health care systems, heart rate monitors, insulin pumps. There are a lot of really critical things, and now our phone services and our internet stuff is so entwined in our lives, that people can't be on their Zoom calls, people can't run their businesses. So, this stuff has a massive impact on people's lives. It's no longer just pictures of cats on the internet, which admittedly, we've really honed the machine for that.Corey: No, but now when software goes down, the biggest arguments people make, the stories people tell is, “Oh, well, it meant that the company lost this much money during that timeframe.” And great, maybe. We can argue about is that really true or is it not? It depends entirely on the company's business model, but I don't like to tend to accept those things at face value. But yeah, that's the small-scale thing, especially when you start getting to these massive platform providers. There are a lot of second and third-order effects that are a lot more interesting slash important to people's lives, than, well, we couldn't show ads to people for an hour and a half.Courtney: Right. Yes. Absolutely. So, T-Mobile had this outage, what is it, how is time—time is still not working very well, for me. I'm trying to remember if it was earlier this year, or if it was in—it was last year. I think it was 2020. And you're like, T-Mobile, oh okay, whatever. You know, like, cell phones, yadda, yadda. 911 stopped working. [laugh].And it was a fascinating outage because these are now actually regulated industries that are heavily software-backed. There was a government investigation into that the same way we have NTSB investigations into airline accidents, and they looked at all of those, kind of, second or third-order effects of people who—you know, a grandma who was stranded on the road, people who couldn't call 911, those kinds of things that are really significant impacts on people's lives. And the second-order effect is, oh, yeah, AWS goes down—like you said—and Amazon or people like to say, Jeff Bezos—I guess, now, are they going to complain about how much money Andy loses? I guess so—but [laugh] what lives on AWS, that's crazy to think about, right?Corey: Yeah, the more I learn the answer to that question, the more disturbed I become.Courtney: Well, you'd probably know a better answer to that question [laugh] than a lot of people.Corey: They have the big companies they can talk about. What's really interesting is the companies that they don't and can't. An easy example: financial services is an industry that is notorious for never granting logo rights. Like, at some point, they'll begrudgingly admit, “Yes, our multinational bank does use computers.” But it's always like pulling teeth, and I get it on some level; the entire philosophy of a lot of these companies is risk-mitigation, rather than growth and advancing the current awareness of knowledge. But it does become a problem.Courtney: Yeah. It's interesting, I need more data, which we'll get to—help me, people—but I am able to start seeing some of those interesting graphs of, kind of these cascading effects of these kinds of outages. And so I strongly believe that we need to talk about them more, that more companies need to write them up, and publish them, and be a lot more transparent about it. And I think there's a number of companies that are showing the way there that—and it has to do with your first question which is, we've all sort of accepted this, right? But I disagree with that.I think those of us who are super close to these kinds of complex, dynamic distributed systems totally know that they're going to fail, and that's not shocking, nor the case of incompetence. We are building systems that are so big and so complex, no one person, no 10X engineer out there could possibly model or hold the whole thing in their head. Especially because it's not even just your systems… we were just talking about, right? Your stuff's on GitHub; it's on AWS; there's, like, three other upstream providers; there's this API from over there. These systems are too intricate, too complex; they're going to fail.Corey: So, we're back to why all these things failed simultaneously and it comes out it's a Northern woods, middle of nowhere backhoe incident. That's right, if we look at the natural food chain of things, fiber optic cable has a natural predator in the form of a backhoe. To the point where if I'm ever lost in the woods, I will drop a length of fiber, kick some dirt over it, wait a few minutes; a backhoe will be along to sever it. Then I can follow the backhoe back to civilization. They don't teach that one and the boy scout manual, but they really should.Courtney: Yeah. Oh, my gosh. There was a beaver outage in Canada, which is the—[laugh] God, that's the most Canadian thing ever.Corey: Can you come up with a more Canadian—Courtney: No.Corey: —story than that? I would posit you could not, but give it a shot.Courtney: No, probably not. Anyhoo. So, I think, like I was saying, those of us close to it accept that, understand it, and are trying to now think about, okay, well, how do we change our approach and our philosophy about this, knowing that things will fall down? But I think if you look at a lot of the rest of the world, people are still like, “What are those idiots doing over there? Why did their site fall down?”Corey: Oh, my God—Courtney: Right?Corey: —the general population is the worst on stuff like this. The absolute worst.Courtney: The media is the worst. [laugh].Corey: It's, “How did they wind up to going down?” “Yeah, because this stuff is complicated.” Back when I was getting started in tech, I thought the whole thing worked on magic, so I started figuring out different pieces of it worked. And now I'm convinced; it runs on magic. The most amazing thing is this all works together. Because—Courtney: Yeah.Corey: —spit and duct tape and baling wire holding this stuff together would be an upgrade from a lot of the stuff that currently exists in the real world. And it's amazing.Courtney: I know the secret, Corey. You know what holds it all together?Corey: Hit me with it. Hope? Tears?Courtney: People.Corey: Mmm.Courtney: Technology is Soylent Green, Corey. It's Soylent Green. It's made of people.Corey: And that's the thing that always bugs me on Twitter. The whole HugOps movement has it right. When you see a big provider taking an outage, all their competitors are immediately there with, “Man, hope things get back together soon. Best of luck. Let us know if we can help.” And that's super reassuring because today is their outage; tomorrow it's yours.Courtney: Yep.Corey: And once in a blue moon, you see someone who's relatively new to the industry starting trying to market their stuff based on someone else's outage, and they basically get their butts fed to them, just because it's this—it's not what you do, and it's not how we operate. And it's one of the few moments where I look at this and realize that maybe people's inherent nature isn't all terrible.Courtney: [laugh]. Oh. Oh, I would hope that would be something that comes out of all of this.Corey: Yeah.Courtney: No one goes to work at their day job doing what we do, to suck. [laugh]. Right? To do a bad job.Corey: Right. Unless you're in Facebook's ethics department, I completely agree with you.Courtney: Okay. Yes. All right. There are a few caveats to that, probably. But you know, we all want to show up and do good stuff. So, nobody's going in trying to take the site down, barring bad actor stuff that's not relevant.Corey: When Azure takes an outage, AWS is not sitting there going, “Ah, we're going to win more cloud deals because of this,” because they're smarter than that. It's, no, people are going to look at this and say, “Ah, see. Told you the cloud was dangerous.” It sets the entire industry back.Courtney: Yeah. That's why we need to talk about it more, and we need to just normalize that these things happen and that we can all level up as an industry if we get a lot smarter about how we, A) think about that, and B) how we react to them. And we will develop much more useful models of our safety boundaries, right? That's really it. You don't know—no one at any of these companies hardly knows if you're five steps from the cliff, five feet, driving a Ferrari 90 miles an hour towards the edge of it.Like, we don't know, it's amazing to me just how much in the dark we are as an industry and how much of the world we're running. So, I think this is one tiny, first little step in what could be sort of a sea change about how all of this works. So, that's a big part of why I'm doing what I'm doing.Corey: Well, let's talk about something else you're doing. So, tell me a little bit about VOID?Courtney: Yeah. So, that's the first iteration of this. So, it's the [Verica Open Incident Database 00:14:10]. I feel like I have to say this almost every time John Allspaw would like me to say that it's the Verica Open Incident Report Database, but VOID is way cooler than—Corey: VOIRD?Courtney: VOIRD.Corey: Yeah, that sounds like you're trying to make fun of someone ineffectively.Courtney: Yeah. And there's a reason why he's not in marketing. But what this is is a collection of all of the publicly available incident reports in one place, easily searchable. You can search by company, you can search by technology, you can filter things by the types of, sort of, kinds of failure modes that we're seeing. And it's, I hope, valuable to a wide swath of folks, both technologists and otherwise: researchers, media and press types, analysts, and whatnot.And my biggest desire is that people will look at it, realize how incomplete it is, and then help me fill it. [laugh]. Help me fill the VOID, people. I think I have right now, at the time we're talking, about 1700, maybe 1800 of these. And they run the gamut. And I know some people who like to quibble about language—and I am one of those people having been an editor in various flavors of my life—not all of these are what a lot of people directly related to these, sort of, incident management and whatnot would call ‘incident reports.'I wanted to collect a corpus that reflects all of the public information about software-related incidents. So, it's anything from tweets—either from a company or just from people—to a status page, to a media article, a news article, an online article, to a full-blown deep-dive retrospective or post-mortem from a company that really does go into detail. It's the whole gamut. It's all of those things. I have no opinionated take on that.I want that all to be available to people. And we've collected some metadata on all of the incidents as well. So, we're collecting the obvious things like when did it happen? What date was it, if we can figure it out, or if it's explicit—how long was it? And those kinds of things and then we collect some metadata, like I said. We add some tags: was this a complete production outage, was it a partial outage? Those kinds of things.And this is all directly just taken from the language of the report. And we're not trying—like I said—we're trying not to have any sort of really subjective takes on any of that, but a bit of metadata that helps people spelunk some of this stuff. So, if it is the kind of report—these are usually from a status page, or a company post about it—what kinds of things were involved in this outage? So, sometimes you'll get lucky and the company will tell you, “It was DNS,” because, you know, it's always DNS.Corey: On some level, it always is. That's why—Courtney: It always is.Corey: —DNS is my database. It's a database problem.Courtney: It's a database problem. And sometimes you get even more detail. And so we will put as much of that that's in the report into a set of metadata about these things. So, I think there's some fascinating, really easy things that I've already seen from some of these data, and we kind of hit on one of these, which is the way that companies themselves talk about these outages versus the way that press and media and other types of organizations talk about these things. So, I think there's a whole bunch of really fascinating analysis that's going to be available to nerdy research-minded type folks like myself.I think it's a place, though, where technologists can also go and spelunk things that they're interested in, looking for patterns, anything that's really—there's an opportunity for experts in the field to add insights to what we can discern from these public incident reports. They are, like, two orders abstracted from what happened internally, but I think there's still a lot that we can learn from those. So, the first iteration of the VOID will allow people to get a first look at some of the data and to help me, hopefully, add to it, grow that corpus over time, and we'll see where that goes.This episode is sponsored by our friends at Oracle Cloud. Counting the pennies, but still dreaming of deploying apps instead of "Hello, World" demos? Allow me to introduce you to Oracle's Always Free tier. It provides over 20 free services and infrastructure, networking databases, observability, management, and security.And - let me be clear here - it's actually free. There's no surprise billing until you intentionally and proactively upgrade your account. This means you can provision a virtual machine instance or spin up an autonomous database that manages itself all while gaining the networking load, balancing and storage resources that somehow never quite make it into most free tiers needed to support the application that you want to build.With Always Free you can do things like run small scale applications, or do proof of concept testing without spending a dime. You know that I always like to put asterisks next to the word free. This is actually free. No asterisk. Start now. Visit https://snark.cloud/oci-free that's https://snark.cloud/oci-free.Corey: I love the idea of having a centralized place where outages, post-mortems, root cause analyses—I'll let you tear into that in a minute—and other things that are all tied to where can I find a list of outages. Because companies list these on their websites, they put them in blog posts, and it's always very begrudging; they don't link them from any other place, you have to know the magic incantation to find the buried link on their site. Having something that is easily searchable for outages is really something that's kind of valuable.Courtney: Yeah. And I mean, some of them are like—I'm looking at you, Microsoft—I like you for a lot of reasons, but hey, I have to scroll your status page. I can't link directly to their write-ups, and—this is Azure—and it [laugh] please stop. Make it easier. [laugh]. You're driving me crazy; I don't even have a data model to figure out how to make this work for people, other than, like, taking screenshots of them.So yeah, so there's shades of grey and black in how much they'll share, or how easy it is to find these things. So, it'll be interesting to see if there's any less-than-positive [laugh] reactions to all of this being available in one place. I'm anticipating at least a little bit of that.There is one other type of metadata that we collect for the VOID. And that is the type of analysis that is conducted if it is clear what that type of analysis is. And there, some companies explicitly say, or call it an RCA, “We did a Root Cause Analysis.” There's a few other types; some people talk about having a Contributing Factors Analysis. Most people don't consider a formal analysis type, but I am trying to collect and categorize these because I do think there are some fascinating implications buried therein, and I would like to see if I can keep track of whether or not those change over time. And yes, you've hit on one of my favorite hot-take soapbox things, which is root cause.Corey: Please, take it away.Courtney: Yeah. Well, and anyone who's close to these systems and has watched these things fall down has the inherent sense that there is no root cause. Like—[laugh]—let's—great. One of my favorite ones: human error. We don't have enough hours for this, Corey. I'm sorry. That's one of my favorite other ones. But let's say somebody fat-fingers a config change. Which happens—Corey: That was fundamentally the S3 service disruption back in—Courtney: Yes.Corey: —2017 that took down S3 for hours on end.Courtney: And took down so many other people that relied on S3.Corey: Everything was tied to that. And that's an interesting question; when something like that hits, does that mean that everything it takes down get its own entry in VOID?Courtney: I hope so. If everybody writes them up, then yes. [laugh]. So, if S3 goes down, and you go down, and you write it up, and you put it in the VOID, then we can see those things, which would be so cool. But let's go back to the fat-fingered config file—which if you haven't ever done, you're lying, first of all—Corey: Or you haven't been allowed to touch anything large and breakable yet, which, either way, you're lying on some level. So, please—Courtney: Yeah. I mean, I took down [Halloway's 00:20:53] homepage when it was on Hacker News because of YAML. So, anywho. Even if you fat-finger a config change, that's not the root cause because you have this system wherein a fat-fingered configure change can take down S3. That is a very big, complex, and I might add, socio-technical system.There are decisions that were made long ago about why it was structured that way, or why this happens that way, or what kinds of checks and balances you have. It's just, get over it people. There is no root cause. These are complex, highly dynamic systems that when they fail, they fail in unpredictable and weird ways because we've built them that way. They're complex because you're successful at pushing the envelope and your safety boundaries.So, if we could get past the root cause thing as an industry, I mean, I could probably just retire happy, honestly. [laugh]. I'm a simple woman; could we just get one thing, people? [laugh]. First of all, then it gives non-technologists, people outside of our bubble, the media, you can't hang it on these things anymore. We all have to then grapple with the complexity, which admittedly humans, not big fans of, but—Corey: People want simple stories, simple narratives. When people say, “Oh, remember the S3 outage?” They don't want to sit there and have to recount 50,000 different details. They want to say, “Oh, yeah. It took down a few big sites like Instagram, United Airlines, and it was a real mess.” The end. They want something that fits in a tweet, not something that fits in a thesis.Courtney: Well, and if you have a single root cause, then you can fix the root cause and it will never happen again. Right?Corey: That's the theory. If we're just a little bit more careful, we're never going to have outages anymore.Courtney: Yeah, if we could just train those humans to not try to make the best possible high-quality decision they could possibly make in that situation given the information they have at the time, then we'll do better. But I mean, that's why your system stay up most of the time, if you think about it. It's shocking how well these things actually work the vast majority of the time. And that's what we could learn from this, too. We could, you know—oh if we would write near-misses up, please.I mean, if I could have one more wish, I think one of the coolest things the airline industry and the government side of that did was start writing up near-misses. It's, wow, what do we learn from when we're successful, versus trying to, like, spelunk and nitpick the failures.Corey: Most of us aren't so good at the whole introspection part. We need failures, we need painful outages to really force us to make difficult, introspective, soul-searching decisions and learn from them.Courtney: Yeah. And I don't disagree with that. I just wish one of the things we would learn is that we should study our successes, too. There's more to be mined from our successes, if we can figure out how to do that, then there is from our failures. So, I have a metadata category in the VOID called ‘near-miss.'And oh man, I really wish people would write those up more. I mean, I think there's, like, five things in there that I've found so far. Because the humans hold these systems together. We make these things work the vast majority of the time. That's why there is no root cause, and even when we're involved in these things, we're also involved in preventing them, or solving them, or remediating them. So, yeah, there's no root cause. Humans aren't the problem. Those are my big hot button ones.Corey: I really wish more places would embrace that. Even Amazon uses the ‘root cause' terminology internally, and I'm not going to sit here and tell them how to run large things at scale; that's what I pay them to figure out for me. But I can't shake the feeling that by using that somewhat reductive terminology that they're glossing over an awful lot of things the rest of us could really benefit from.Courtney: Well, so the question then—one of the other things that I look at is, personally when I read and analyze these incident reports, these public ones a lot, I always ask myself, “Who's the audience for this?” And there are different audiences for different types of incident reports and different things. The vast majority of them are for customers, partners, investors.Corey: The stock market. Yes. Yes.Courtney: They're not actually for the organization. There's usually an internal one that we don't get to see—maybe—that's for the organization. But a lot of places feel that if you have a process, and a template, and a checklist, and a list of action items at the end, then you've done the right thing. You've had your incident, you've talked about it, you've got your action items. Move on.Corey: Right, and it always seems with companies, that as you get further into the company, the more honest and transparent the actual analysis is. Like, at some point, you wind up with the, like, they're very public and very cagey, and under NDA, they open up a little bit more, and a little bit more, and finally, when you work there, their executive team, it turns out, the actual thing was, “Well, Dewey was carrying arm full of boxes in the data center, tripped, went cascading face-first into the EPO cutoff switch that cut power to the entire facility.” The cagier they get, the—I guess, not to be unkind here—but the more ridiculous whatever the actual answer is. It's one of those things where, “Really? Someone tripped and hit a button. You didn't have a plan for that?” “Well, not really. We sort of assumed that people would”—Courtney: Why would you have a plan for that, right?Corey: Right.Courtney: I mean like—[laugh].Corey: Why would you have a plan for that, the first time?Courtney: Yeah. I mean, so imagine this exercise: sitting down in a room with a bunch of people and going, “What are all the things that could go wrong?” I mean, [laugh] ain't nobody got time for that? That's not how it works. You all have other jobs to do, too, and systems to build, and pressures, and customers, and partners, and features to build, so admit and acknowledge that you just won't know all of the antecedents and how do you respond when things happen?Which is a whole other, you know—I know you told me you recorded an episode with Dr. Christina Maslach on burnout, which I'm so happy you did, and there's a whole ‘nother piece of incidents and incident response, and burning people out, and blaming people, and all that stuff that's a whole ‘nother pod—it sounds like you might—you know, probably not incidents with her. But still, these things take a toll on people. And people who, like I said, show up every day really hoping to do their best job, and go up a ladder, and get a promotion, and whatever. So, I think not just treating those things as checklists has broader implications as well, just for the wellbeing of your organization.Corey: On some level, the biggest problem that I think we've run into is that, as you said, it all comes down to people. Unfortunately, legally, we can't patch those. Yet.Courtney: No, [laugh]. No, no. Not most kinds of patches, no. And that's messy. And I know some people are like, “Everyone should learn to code.” And I'm like, “Actually, everyone should get a liberal arts degree.” Come on, help me out people. Because there's so much of these socio-technical systems where the socio part of it is more relevant than the actual technical part.Corey: I believe you're right, for better or worse; there's no way around it. Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me. If people want to learn more about what you're up to, where can they find you? And we will, of course, throw a link to VOID in the [show notes 00:28:06].Courtney: Yeah, I also like to talk on Twitter, like you do. I'm not as good at it as you are, but I try. So yeah, I'm @courtneynash on Twitter. And at Verica, you can find me at Verica as well, courtney@verica.io. And those are the best ways to find me, I would say. And yeah, please people, write up your incidents, send them to the VOID and let's all learn and get better together, please.Corey: Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me today. I really do appreciate it.Courtney: Thank you for having me on. I know—do people say this: I'm like, “Yeah, big fan,” but I am. I'm a [laugh] big fan [laugh] of the podcast.Corey: Oh, dear Lord, find better things to listen to. My God.Courtney: [laugh]. But it's been a treat.

Welcome back to our chance every day where we get to hangout and talk about traffic and funnels and all of the fun things. Excited to be with you guys here today. It's actually kind of cool be in this whole quarantine thing. Where outside everything looks normal and it's this weird, eerie feeling. But then inside we can hangout and be with our family, our friends, we can go live, we can share thoughts, ideas. I think this has been a really cool time for so many people to start sharpening their saw, and starting to get smarter and better about what they're doing and why their doing it and how they're doing it and all kind of stuff. So I'm excited to be here with you guys today. We're going to be talking more about traffic secrets. Today we're going to be covering the third type of traffic. Yesterday we talked about the first two types of traffic. Traffic that you control, traffic that you earned and then today we're talking about the third type, which is traffic that you... you guys know what it is? Traffic that you own. That's the best kind of traffic. So we're going to be going to that in here a few seconds. But while we're waiting for everybody to jump on and get here, I want to make sure you guys know that we're in the middle of the traffic series book launch, which is kind of fun. We've been selling books like crazy. This is the highest numbering funnel we've done so far. So for my funnel hackers, if you're going through the funnel make sure to buy slowly and watch the process and see what's happening and why it's happening because it's doing really, really well. You can go to trafficsecrets.com. This is it right here. There's the video. In fact, you watch the video, I'm very proud of the video, hopefully you'll learn some stuff just from watching that. You can see the offers, you can buy the book for free, just cover shipping and handling, it's 9.95 shipping in the U.S., a little bit more internationally, but you can go get that there. Scroll down you can see the sales pitch. This is a chance, look at what I'm doing, you guys. I spent two years writing the book and about the same amount of time brainstorming this funnel and getting it live and ready. It is over 20,000 books sold and it's kept a $63 average cart value, which is insane. Especially knowing that a lot of you guys are my funnel hackers. You're like, "I bough the book six times. I want to get everybody's bonuses." With that said, to be able to keep the average cart value that high I would say the real average cart value, if I were to pull out all the duplicates, the average is probably 80 plus dollars, which is insane. Most book funnels are 20 to 30 bucks max. The funnels are awesome, so make sure to go watch it, buy slowly, learn some stuff while you're doing it. You just go to trafficsecrets.com. For those of you that are extra bored, especially if you're bored with your kids, right here is funnelflix.com. And if you go to funnelflix.com, you can get a free premiere week. Which basically you go in there, and you get a bunch of video for free. Including the very first one, which is from, I don't know if you can see it right there, that is Frank Kern... this is Frank Kern right here. He spoke at Funnel Hacking Live. Nobody knew he was coming, we kept it a surprise and he came out and people lost their mind. Frank is one of the original OGs. When I was learning internet marketing, Frank was one of the dudes teaching it. You can actually go and literally go watch his presentation online for free, bunch of other ones as well. Julius, I hear he's got 5,000,000 followers on Instagram. He walks you how he does it, how he did it. You get that one for free. You get one from me for free. Anyway if you go to funnelflix.com you get Funnel Flix premiere week for free. Then if you go over here to trafficsecrets.com, you get Traffic Secrets for free. So anyway, that's what's happening. All right with that said, you guys, we got a full audience between Instagram we're about 160 people, Facebook we're at 155-ish, so we've got 300 people here. We can start this party and get started and it should be fun. Lionel said, "I think I found my ADD community." Yes, welcome to the ADD-nis. All right. Okay, so today we're talking again about Traffic Secrets. If you don't have your free copy of the book, go to trafficsecrets.com. And this is the box set with all the books.

And Traffic Seekers is the third and final book in the trilogy. And Unlock the Secrets is this amazing workbook that goes with all of these books here. It's kind of fun. Anyhoo, let me pull out book number one. All right, the Traffic Secrets book. So here we go, Traffic Secrets. Today we're going to be going into one of the secrets. Brian saying, "How do you get the box set?" The box set is not for sale right now unless after you get the Traffic Secrets book the upsale may or may not be the box set.

So you just got to go to trafficsecrets.com and slowly today go through the funnel and have some fun with it. Reesio said, "How is my quarantine?" It's been good. We're having a good time. I think I'm driving my kids crazy sometimes, they're driving me crazy sometimes, but as a whole, we're doing really good. Thank you for asking. All right, hope you guys are all doing as well, good as well. My job for the next 25 minutes or so is to entertain you, get you excited, inspire you, open your mind to how to get traffic. What you do with traffic, how it all works. I've been doing these live on Instagram and Facebook every day for the last two weeks, so if you missed any of them feel free to go back there. We may or may not also be launching a Traffic Secrets podcast that'll have the recordings of these too. That may be live in the next day or so, I'll let you guys know and then you can start listening in there as well, which will be kind of cool. All right, here we go, Traffic Secrets. So what we covered so far. Section number one is all about your dream customer. Secret One we figure out who's your dream customer. We talked about figuring out and understanding them at a deep level. Figuring out are they moving towards pleasure or away from pain? What's interesting in this market today, I think two weeks ago a majority of customers were moving towards pleasure. Which meant your ads, your advertising is all focused on grabbing people or trying to move towards pleasure. Over the last two weeks, people are in pain and they're now in a state where they're moving away from pain. Looking at that lens, most of our advertising and marketing should be shifting from speaking to them moving towards pleasure to speaking to them moving away from pain. So there's a little hint from Section number one. We also talked about the difference between a searcher and a scroller. What advertising networks people are searching, which ones they're scrolling and how you differentiate your ads and your landing pages and everything based on if they're a searcher or a scroller, the pros and the cons. That was all secret number one. Number two we talked about now you know who they are. Where are they hiding? Where are they congregating? We've got to find those pockets of our dream customers so we can go and target them. We also talked about then who's already congregated and who are our dream 100? And we built the list of our dream 100. After that, secret number three, we talked about hook story offer. How do we throw our hooks in the water to grab their attention and we tell the story to increase perceived value of what it is we're selling them and then how we make them an offer. And secret number four. Yesterday we talked about with your dream 100 how do you work your way in and how do you buy your way in? And that's what brings us today. Today we're talking about secret number five, which is traffic that you own. So I'm going to jump right there, we're going to go through that. This is the best type of traffic of all the types of traffic that are out there. So many things I have to gloss through because this book is super huge and I can't just cover every... make sure you still get the book and read it because there's so many things, like in here, just in the last chapter, I walk through five of our front end funnels. I'll show you the stats, numbers, every single funnel, how it works. I talk about how much you spend on traffic, how much on ads. I give you very detailed numbers. It's like six pages of the numbers of the funnel that you can get inside the book and look at and say, okay, here's the product. How much is it sold for? Here's the order form bump. Here's the commissions, the percentages, here's how it all worked. I breakdown every funnel in great detail. Those are all things I can't do on a live like this that you get inside the book. Okay. Secret number five, traffic that you own. So if you look at the image here, you can see here is the dream 100, right. If you've done this exercise with me over the last couple days, here's Facebook, here's all the people that have already congregated my dream customers on Facebook. Here's Instagram, here's a lot of people that have already congregated in my dream customers Instagram. On Facebook, on YouTube, on Google, we find those people, we have our dream 100 list. Now we're trying to figure out from yesterday how do I work my way in and how do I buy my way into these audiences, okay? Because that's where are traffic's already at, we're just trying to work out way and buy our way in into the audiences. And then from there, this is what this whole secret's about: Traffic v. Yield. So all the time we're getting traffic, our goal's not to get traffic to sell products, our goal is to get traffic where we're either getting traffic that we've earned or traffic we control and we're converting it into traffic that we own. That's the big secret, okay. So, for example, traffic that I earn. If I'm earning traffic, it means I'm going out and I'm working for it, right. I'm getting on podcast interviews, I'm doing Facebook lives with people. I'm getting somebody to promote my product for me. This is stuff I'm not paying for, but I'm earning it, I'm putting in the time and the energy and the effort, okay. Traffic I control is I go to Facebook, right. And I don't own Facebook ads, right? Mark Zuckerberg, he owns all that traffic on Facebook, but he allows me and you to go to him and say, "Hey, I want to control some of that traffic. I will pay you if you let me divert some of that traffic from Facebook over into my funnel," okay? It's the traffic you control. There's traffic that I earn, I'm working my way in. There's traffic that I control, where I'm buying my way in. Now the goal of both those traffic sources is not just to sell a product. This is where most people get it wrong. This is the very shortsightedness of almost all entrepreneurs. They're like, "Oh, cool, I bought traffic from Facebook. I'm going to sell my product." Yes, that's part of the goal, but the bigger goal, the overarching strategy is to convert traffic that you earn and traffic that you control into traffic that you own. When you own traffic, you own your own destiny, right? If Facebook shutdown tomorrow, I'd be okay because I have an email list of, I don't know, one and a half to almost 2,000,000 people. So I own that traffic. Any day I can wake up like, "I want to send traffic to this." I can send an email and, boom, traffic goes there. I launch a new book, I want to send traffic here. Because I own that traffic, I own this ball of traffic, I can send it to this page or this page or that page. I can send it wherever I want because I own that traffic, okay? So all the other things I'm doing, all the other exercises of buying ads and working my way into doing podcast interviews and all those things, the only goal of those things is to convert the traffic that I'm controlling and then buying, or that I'm earning and controlling, into traffic that I own, because then I control my own destiny. For me, for the last few years, I've been working on that. For the last decade and a half I've been building my list, building my following, it's traffic that I own now. Even if Facebook disappears, if Google goes away tomorrow, I'm still going to be in business because I own traffic, okay? And that's the mindset shift of what you guys are all having, that you need to understand that you want to be able to own that traffic, okay? So that's what this whole secret's about, owning traffic. When I first kind of started understanding this, let's see... When I first started understanding this, it was back early in my journey. One of my first mentors was a guy named Mark Joiner. Some of you guys know Mark, he's amazing. He's the one who kept telling me, "Russ, we have to focus on building a list, building a list, that's the secret to internet marketing. Building a list, building a list." And I remember at the time there were all these people that were doing different ways to make money. And I was so grateful that my first mentor told me, "You have to build lists, you have to build lists," because that thing has saved me now for a decade and a half. During the ups and downs of the trials of my business and the safe parts of my business. Having a list has helped me to endure. The people who have email lists right now, are the ones who are going to thrive during this whole crazy recession and depression, whatever ends up happening. I don't even know what's going to happen. But those people are surviving because they're prepared for that, right? It's very important to understand that. Let's see. There's so many things I could share with you guys. Just get the book and read it, it's so good! Anyway. Okay. Oh, there's a story in here, but the story's four pages long. Part of me wants to read it, and part of me is like if I read that I'd lose half of you guys. I'll tell you the gist of the story and I'll read one part of it. So this was the day that I learned about list-building, the day it really got sunk in my head. I was like, "Oh my gosh, I need an email list," right? In fact, I told this story yesterday on an interview with Jim Edwards, it was kind of fun. All right, when I first started learning about this whole game of internet marketing, I started hearing people talk about email list. I remember reading and article online and it was about... sometimes you hear about the gurus and they make $30,000 in a weekend and you think it's scam, right? And the guy's like, "No, it's not a scam. Let me explain how this whole thing works." And he explained, he said, "The gurus, whatever you want to call them, they have an email list of maybe 10,000 people, or 30, or a 100,000 people." He said, "All they do is an email out to a 100,000 people and if they send an email to a 100,000 people and they get 10,000 people who actually go and sign up for the thing," right. "Say you send an email to 100,000 people, 10,000 people open the email, 5,000 click through to the thing, and then 500 of those people actually buy the product and let's say it's a $20 product, you just made 10 grand or 30 grand, whatever the math is," right. And he's just like, "It's just a numbers game." He said, "The reason why these gurus make a ton of money is because they spent the last X amount of time building up these huge email lists, right, traffic that they own." And when I read that I was like, "Oh my gosh," it was the epiphany and all of a sudden I understood." I was like, "I need my own email list." I didn't know how to get an email list. So the first thing I did was I jumped on Mr. Google. I said, "How do you get an email list?" And I started searching around and within a few minutes I found this website. I can't remember the domain exactly, I think it was spam for emailaddresses.com. I was like, "Sweet, that's what I need, spam for email addresses." So I went and there was some DVDs where you could buy a DVD with a 100,000 email addresses, one with 500,000, one with a 1,000,000. I'm like, "Well, if I'm going to get an email list, I want a 1,000,000." So I spent 70 bucks and bought a DVD with a million email addresses on it. I waited for it to get sent to me, I get this thing with 70,000,000 email addresses. I'm like, "I'm going to be rich." I'm doing the math in my head. Send an email to a 1,000,000 people, if I get a 100,000 to open, 10,000 to click, 5,000 to buy the thing times $20. If I could send an email every single day, I'm going to be rich. I'm doing the math in my head, I'm trying to explain to my wife, we'd just gotten married at the time. "You can literally quit your job tomorrow. We are going to be rich. I figured out the secret of internet marketing. This is going to be so easy." So I took this DVD, and back then the way we sent emails was different. It wasn't through an email auto responder, you had to buy desktop software. So I bought the software, I put it on my desktop and I uploaded the DVD with a 100,000,000 people's email addresses. I wrote an email and I remember that night, about to go to bed. And you have to remember this was almost 15 years ago. It was, no, probably 16-17 years ago. Anyway, it was before we have high speed internet, before we had cell phones, things like that. If you remember the internet back then, usually you had one phone line and it was your phone or your modem. So I had to crawl under my desk, unplug the phone and plug in my modem, get online. I remember that night writing an email, clicking send and then telling my wife I was like, "We'll be rich by morning. You can literally quit your job tomorrow." And I remember sitting there watching the email software, boom, one email sent, two emails sent, three, four. I'm like, "Oh, this is amazing!" I go to bed that night and I'm like a kid at Christmas time, laying there in bed thinking about it. Every couple of hours I get out of bed and run in, move the mouse to get my screensaver off and 600 sent, 800 sent, 2000 sent. I'm just freaking out, right? So finally the next morning I wake up, my wife's getting ready for work, I'm getting ready for school. And I sneak back in the room where the computer's at, I look at it. And overnight we'd sent, I think we'd sent 6500 emails or something like that during the night. And I was like, "Dang it, I thought I was going to send a million overnight. It's going way slower than I thought." Then Colette was like, "I need to use the phone." I'm like, "You have to use the phone? You don't understand, we're printing cash right now, we cannot use the phone." She's like, "I have to use the phone. I have to call someone at work." So I crawl under the desk, I go and unplug the modem, I plug back in the phone and as soon as I plug it in, I'm still under the desk, I hear the phone ring, brrg. I get out, I pick up the phone and on the other end was my internet service provider yelling at me and screaming at me and cursing me out. Telling me how many spam complaints that they got in the last four or five hours. They're shutting me down and they're going to potentially file a lawsuit and all this stuff. I just like, oh, crap, and I totally freaked out. Finally, the guy hangs up on me, shuts off my internet. I hang up the phone and Colette's like, "Who's that on the phone?" I'm like, "Uh, nobody. Oh, and by the way, please don't quit today. Just wait it out a couple days." She kind of laughs at me. Anyway, she goes to work and that day I'm kind of bummed out. I'm licking my wounds and I go and I put my backpack on and I'm walking to school. I get to school and I'm super bummed out because I lost internet. I can't even check my email, I've no internet right now. I go into the computer lab at school and I check my emails. I said I felt like, "I wonder if anybody bought anything?" So I logged into my PayPal account like I did many times prior, and every time I logged into PayPal in the past, there's always a big zero on top. How much money did you make? Zero dollars. I'm like, "Ah." And I logged in this time and guess what? It didn't say zero. First time ever, it said 70. I was like, "What?" I was like, "I made 70 bucks." The way I did it apparently was illegal, but I did it, I made 70 bucks. This actually works! And it was the proof I needed. This whole thing actually works. This whole idea of having a list works. I did it the wrong way, but there's got to be a right way to do this. So it started me on this journey of I have to figure out the legitimate way to build the email list because other people are doing it. I got a little taste of it, I made 70 bucks the wrong way so I got to figure out the right way. So I started this journey of I have to learn how to build a list, have to learn how to build the list. That became my obsession for the next decade of my life and it's still an obsession today, which is why I have a big email list, because I focus on it. In fact, every single day we have a company-wide meeting. We call it the Click Funnels Pulse Meeting. And one of the stats we share every single day is how many people joined our list yesterday? That's the number we're looking at. It's a metric, it's a KPI in our company. How many people today joined your list? It was interesting for all of you guys who are watching this, if you're not looking at that metric daily, your list probably isn't growing. I've seen some people who have a business, they'll grow a list and they get 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 people on the list and then they stop and go, "Oh, I got a list." And they send emails to the list and they're making money so their fine. But what happens is that list will start to atrophy over time, get smaller, smaller and eventually your business just disappears and dies. Your focus point is you need to consistently, continually always be building your list. That should be the number one metric. You wake up every morning, how many people joined my list yesterday? How many joined yesterday? I remember the first time I got that, one of my friends, Dagen Smith, he told me that. He asked me, "How many people a day join your email list?" I'm like, "I don't know." He's like, "You don't know that number?" "I mean people are joining, but I don't look at that." He's like, "Dude, what you watch, what you measure grows." And so I was like, "Okay. I'm going to start looking it." I started looking at it. I remember at the time there's probably 60-70 people a day joining my list, and so I started watching it. And what's crazy is I started looking at the numbers every single day, it started making me upset in my head. "Ah, only 70 people." Then your subconscious mind starts looking for ways. "Well, how do I make this bigger? How do I make it bigger?" As I'm sitting there thinking how to make it bigger, new ideas pop in my head. Then I morph from 70 a day to 100 a day to a 150 a day, and 500 a day to a 1,000 a day, to 2,000 a day. And it became the focal point of my business. For all you guys, when you start getting this book, that's what I talk about. All the things you're doing, from traffic you control, the traffic you're buying, the traffic that you're earning, the goal of all that traffic is just to convert into traffic that you own, which is your list. Your list is the key. If you look at, "What's the biggest secret of the Russ Brunson's internet marketing?" Your list is the key. You need to be building your list. That's the big aha, okay? You have to understand that. All the things I'm doing, from Facebook live to videos, to podcast interviews, to buying ads, the goal of all the thing is to build my list. And the key metric, the KPI I look at every single day, the most important one of my business for me, is how many people today joined my list? Okay. So all you guys need to be focusing on that. That's the big thing. Someone said, "What software do you use?" I use this weird software called Click Funnels. Click Funnels builds my list, it does everything. All right. That's the big thing to understand. Okay. So there's my little tangent, the way to understand, it's the traffic that you own, okay? And I told you that story already. When I'm doing all this stuff, when I'm buying ads, when I'm earning traffic, the goal of both of those is to get into traffic that I own, right? So when I'm on a podcast interview, I'm doing a podcast and I'm earning traffic while I'm there and being interviewed. At the end of it what do I say? At the end of it I'm like, "Hey, by the way, I got this cool new book called Traffic Secrets. Go to trafficsecrets.com to get a free copy." People go to trafficsecrets.com, they click on the button, they put in their what? Email address. Then what happens? They join my list. Oh. That's the goal. If I do the podcast interviews, not just do an interview. I do an interview the interview's not like that's okay. Yeah, I want to sell copies of the book, but the only reason I'm trying to sell copies of the book is I want you on my email list because that's the game, okay? Hopefully, that helps you understand that. So all the traffic you're buying, all the traffic your earning is all going into one spot where you can build an email list because that's the secret of internet marketing. If you look at these, some of you guys have already seen this. This is one of my squeeze pages, okay. If you go to marketingsecrets.com/blackbook, this is one. This lead page alone has generated over 300,000 leads for me. 300,000 leads, okay, boom. This is where my book funnels. The goal of it is to get somebody to join the email list. I'm sending people from all these places to spots. You notice that every page I send somebody to, like right now I sent you to trafficsecrets.com. When you go there, guess what happens if you click on the button? You join my list. I send you to funnelsclick.com, you go there you get this free stuff or I give you this bait to go watch Frank Kern's presentation, Julius', and mine, right. It's four hours of free video, but what happens if you watch those videos? You give me your email address. Now you join my list. I'm working my way right now to you guys, right. We'll then buy ads to this video, which I'll be buying my way in, but the goal of all of them is to get you on my email list, right? I've been telling you you got two email lists today. That's my goal. I'm trying to convert all this traffic that I'm earning, right, I'm earning it, right. We've still got 160 viewers on Instagram, we got 185 in Facebook. We'll push these things live over the next two or three weeks. We'll probably get, I don't know, 50 to 100,000 people to watch this video. From that, hopefully, I'll get, I don't know, 20-30,000 people to join my list from it. That's why I'm doing these exercises, okay. That's why we do all this stuff. So I hope you guys understand that. Okay, one more thing I'll talk about list-building, just to give you guys some metrics to make this really tangible for you and then we'll wrap it for today. When I got started, I had one of my friends, who's actually Mike Filsaime, I love Mike. Mike told me, he said, "You should average, on average you should make at least one dollar per month, per name on your email list." And I didn't know if that was high or low. It's actually really low. You should make more than that, but this is a really good baseline, right? So what that means, let's say you got a 100 people on your email list. You should average one dollar per month, per name on your email list. So I got a 100 people on my email list, I should make at least a 100 bucks a month from those people. I got a 1,000 people on my email list, I should be making a 1,000 bucks a month. If I've got 50,000 people on my email list, I should make 50,000 a month and so on and so forth, right? And for you guys who are starting your business, you're growing your company, you're like, "How do I grow my company?" That's the big secret. How many people are on your email list right now? If I ask you and you're I don't know, then you don't have a business. You're goofing around, okay. Engagement on Instagram does not count as an email list, right? The goal of engagement on Instagram is to get people to go to your email list and join your list, right? That's the tangible business that we're in. I remember he told me that, I was like okay. So I started at that point, it was my very first product called Zip Brander and I had it top of my list. I started driving traffic to it. I remember the very first month I got 217 people. Isn't funny you remember some random numbers like that? 217 people joined my email list that very first month. In that month, I think I made $300 in sales. I was like, okay, that's a little more than a one dollar per name. I'm going to keep focusing. I took that money that I made, I reinvested it back into more traffic. I got more people in and in month number two I had 600 people on my list. That month I made like 800 bucks. I was like, uh. So I reinvested that 800 bucks back into ads, I kept doing it, and soon I got to 2,000 people on my list and 1500 people, then 2,000 people on my list. And that number stayed pretty sync. When I had 2,000 people on my list I was making a little over a two grand a month. When I had 5,000 people on my list, I made five grand a month. When I had a 100,000 people on my list I was making a 100 grand. Now I'm at over 1.7, 1.8 million people on my email list, we make more than that per month, right? So those numbers sync. And what's interesting is you get better at this game, you get better communicating with your audience, better making offers, better telling stories. All this I'm teaching you through these books that number will go up. You shouldn't just make a one dollar per name on your email list. You can make five dollars or $10. Sometimes I see local businesses where the list is small, they only have 800 people on their list, 500 people on their list. It's usually because of the relationship, because they're local they're able to make 10, 20, 30 bucks per name per email on their email list, okay? I want to give you that number as a metric. Because if some of you guys are like, "I need to retire." "I want to work from home," I want to do whatever, right? That's the number you should be looking at, right? If you're thinking I need to make six figures a year. Okay, if you had 10,000 people on your email list, you're averaging one dollar per month per name, that's 10 grand a month times 12 months, that's 120,000 a year. If you can focus, and get 10,000 people on your email list, based on the math, you should be making 120,000 bucks a year, your six figures a year. If you're like, I need to make five grand a month to survive, cool, you should be focusing on building a list of 5,000 people. You get a list of 5,000 people, you should, based on the math, if you do it okay, you should be making 5,000 grand a month. If you're I want to make a 1,000,000 bucks. I want to hit two comma club, cool. It's just a math game, right? That means if you want two comma club, you need to focus on getting a 100,000 people on your list, 100,000 people times 12 months is 1.2 million bucks a year. That's the game, you guys. That's what you've got to start to understand. The list is the secret. That's the metric, that's the thing we're all focusing on. So all this traffic stuff we're doing, as much fun as it is, like how do you Facebook ads, and Google ads, and do integration marketing? And how do you do growth hacking? All the things we're talking... as exciting as those things are, and they are, they're pretty amazing. The real secret, the real big aha, is that all the focus point of that is to turn it into traffic that you actually own. And I think tomorrow we're actually going to talk about followup funnels. I'm pretty sure. So tomorrow, we're going to talk about followup funnels. So followup funnels is like now someone's on my list, now what do I do with it? How do you make a dollar per name per month, Russell? Well, you do it by the followup funnel. This is the sequences and tomorrow we're going to go deep into that. But I'll give you guys a hint, just so you know. I was doing a... and I'll show this tomorrow, we'll go deep into this. I was looking at my front end funnels and we did a 30 day snapshot in a window. And in a 30 day window, for every dollar we made on one of our front end funnels, those are the funnels that buy ads too where I push stuff through like this. I'm buying my way, working my way, for every dollar I make in that front end funnel, we made $16.49 in the next 30 days through the followup funnels. These are the emails and messages that are sent to them over the next 30 days. So that's the big secret, you guys. So, again, I will share that with you guys tomorrow. If I can do nothing else, to drill into your brain, say the traffic secret to drill in your brain today, the most important thing you'll be focusing on is traffic that you own. How do you convert all the traffic you're earning, all the traffic you're buying into traffic that own? Because then when the storms come, and they're coming, you're feeling it right now. When the recession hits, when the depressions hit, when Facebook is shutdown by the government, when whatever. The platform you're on, the people are huge on buying and then buying got destroyed and then people have podcasts. Let's say the podcasts disappear. Who knows what it's going to be? But as long as you're focusing all your efforts on one thing, traffic that you own, you'll survive the hard times, okay? I've survived two collapses of the economy, excuse me, one big collapse of the economy, two collapses of my business. I've survived all these things because of one thing, and one thing alone: I have my email list. That's the big secret. You guys got that? That's the big secret. So always have to think about that today. In fact, that should be your goal right now, as you get off this thing, start thinking, okay, how big is my email list today? That's number one. If it's zero people, now's the time to start, okay. But look at it, how big is your email list, that's number one. Then number two, how many people per day are joining it, okay? Again, if that's zero, then that's the next thing, how do I get people every day to do it? Then number three, okay, how do I make that number bigger? What you measure grows. So if you start measuring it, it'll grow, or shrink if you're in weight loss, right? If you're measuring your waist every day, you don't want it to grow, but it'll shrink. But in business you want it to grow. So whatever you measure will grow. So every single day the number you should be looking for is how much did my list grow today? How many leads have I got today? That's what you got to start focusing on, okay. Help you guys to survive the storms or the craziness, that's just as important. So there you guys go. That is the Traffic Secret for today I'm going to share. We had a good turnout today. You guys must be bored out of your minds at home during the quarantine. So if you are, what I recommend doing right now... by the time we hangout tomorrow, you guys could listen to this entire book. Go to trafficsecrets.com, you can pre-order a hardbound copy of this book for free. They don't ship until May 5th though, but the order form bump is the audio book of this. If you get the audio book you can plug it into your ears and you could listen to it. It's seven hours of me reading the entire book, word-for-word. By this time tomorrow, you can have it done, we can get back to work. That's your challenge. While you're sitting around, go do it. Let's go. Trafficsecrets.com, get the hardbound book. There's also a whole bunch of amazing video bonuses you get. You get a presentation from Prince Ea who has over three billion views on Facebook. He does a presentation you get for free in there. Payne June talks about how he does his social media, presentation for me about traffic. A bunch of cool stuff you get for free in there. You just got to go get the book for free and then get the audio book you can start listening to today, if you want. Those who have been asking about how do you get the whole box set. The upsale flow you can get the box set in the upsale flow, so that's there as well. And then, you guys, after you've done that and you're like, "I need more stuff, Russ. I want to keep geeking out. I want to sharpen myself, want my brain to get bigger." Then just go to right here, funnelflix.com. Click Funnels has entered the streaming wars, we are trying to destroy Disney+ and Netflix and all the others. No, I'm just kidding. This is way better.

Oh, you joined my list! "What? Russ practices what he preaches! Oh, this is so crazy." You joined my email list, right? Boom, you watch Frank's presentation. Then, number two, you go right here, and you watch the presentation of Julius, who built an Instagram following of I think 5 or 6,000,000 people. He's a magician, his presentation was insane.

Sunflower Radio Promo (1970) The Beach Boys - Slip On Thru (Instrumental backing and backing vocals ) (1970)  The Beach Boys - Forever (1970)  The Beach Boys - Til I Die (vocals only) (1971) The Beach Boys - Add Some Music To Your Day (1970)  The Beach Boys - Seasons In The Sun (1971) Originally titled "Le Moribund" ("The Dying Person"), it was a huge hit for Terry Jacks in 1973, who had previously been part of a husband-wife band called The Poppy Family. The Poppy Family had a sitar player in the band. Four people. One was a sitar player. ANYHOO, Jacks tried repeating his luck by recording another Brel song, "Ne Me Quitte Pas", as "If You Go Away", but as the French say, "La foudre ne frappe jamais deux fois." Wikipedia: The first version of the song was recorded by Jacques Brel, who also wrote it in a brothel in Tangiers. Sung in a marching tempo, it tells of a man dying of a broken heart and shows him saying his last farewells to his close friend Emile, a priest friend, an acquaintance named Antoine, and his wife who has cheated on him numerous times with Antoine. Despite knowing of Antoine being his wife's lover, he wishes no ill upon him but tells him to take care of his wife. The American poet Rod McKuen translated the lyrics to English. In 1964, the Kingston Trio first recorded an English version of "Seasons in the Sun", which was later heard by Terry Jacks and became the basis for his rendition. Jacks rewrote the lyrics, although he is uncredited for it. He justifies the rewriting by stating that he deemed the original version and its translations to be "too macabre". The inspiration for the rewritten lyrics was a close friend of his who was suffering from acute leukemia and died four months later. The Terry Jacks rendition, which was later dedicated to the friend, has the dying man giving his last words to his loved ones with whom he shared his life, much like the original. However, unlike the Jacques Brel version, the man does not die broken-hearted but instead, acknowledges the rights and wrongs of his actions in life as he passes away peacefully. In the rewritten version, the man first addresses his close friend, whom he had known since childhood, and reminisces the happy times they had such as playing and studying together ("climbed hills and trees", "learned of love and ABC's"), and friendships with others ("skinned our hearts and skinned our knees"). He then addresses his father, who tried to give him a good upbringing and exert a positive influence on his undisciplined life ("I was the black sheep of the family", "You tried to teach me right from wrong", "wonder how I got along") which included overindulgence, vices, and revelry ("too much wine and too much song"). The man finally addresses "Michelle", possibly his daughter or niece, and stating how she lifted his spirit up in times of despair. Before he dies in peace, the man reminds all three that he will always be alive in their hearts and will be present in spirit when they see people or visit places; pretty girls (old and new friends) for the close friend, young children playing for the father, and flower fields for Michelle. This version is actually produced for The Beach Boys BY Jacks. He produced this one song and they gave him the heave-ho. Maybe he said, "I'll produce, but there's this song I wrote called 'Put The Bone In' which you might like." The ticket back to Vancouver was on its way.  Allan Sherman - Pop Hates The Beatles (1964) The Average Disco Band - Eleanor Rigby (1977) Coming soon, my Amherst Records show!  The Average Disco Band - Help (1977)  Avon "Elusive" Salesperson Ad (1969)  Bill Haley and His Comets - Rock Around The Clock (1974) Live from the Hammersmith Palais in London.  Bill Haley and His Comets - Rock Around The Clock (1979) Amsterdam, Netherlands. Notable as having Chico Ryan from Sha Na Na on rhythm guitar. To me, I guess.  Bill Haley - Rock Around The Clock (1968 vocals, accompaniment overdubbed horribly by a bunch of anonymous guys.)

They have been entertaining alternately between the Montauk Golf & Racquet Club and Gurney's Inn for the past three years. Off-season, Bill and Lisa perform on cruise ships, including trips to the South Pacific and the Orient."   Kool and the Gang - Raw Hamburger (1969) Formed by Robert "Kool" Bell, his brother Ronald Bell and a bunch of their New Jersey teenage friends in the mid-60s (then called the Jazziacs), Kool & the Gang played traditional jazz in regional venues for several years, slowly morphing their style to incorporate emerging funk sounds of Sly and the Family Stone and James Brown. They were signed by the De-Lite label in the early '70s and gathered a small but loyal national following (in particular for their 1971 release Live at the Sex Machine). The group's fortunes exploded in 1974 with Wild and Peaceful, an infectiously raw album that spawned three smash hits, "Funky Stuff," "Hollywood Swinging," and "Jungle Boogie," all featuring great instrumentation and lyrics virtually shouted by the group. However, as quickly as they rode to fame, Kool & the Gang faded, their rough sound appearing out of place against the slick, dance-oriented sounds that began to dominate popular radio in the late '70s. And then they broke up, never to be heard from again.  Kool and the Gang  - Country Junkie (1972)  Looking Glass - Sweet Something (1973)

Today will be fun as the guy who fixed the ceiling also is here to fix a fan in a garage. Of course, he is using a saw so he is a part of the show too. I even have his battery charger charging in the house as I am recording this. I tell ya people think I just sit in my house. No man, I'm Pinky and The Brain up in here. Except I don't really want to take over the World. Anyhoo, today I am in the streets ha I should say outside for some answers to a question, sharing some stories that caught my eye and a random question. This guy and his saw brt. So I am loving all the compliments I am getting on the hair lately, it's all about the curly hair squad these days. So many women! Song by: Sugar Beats Do It! Yo so I saw this Instagram of this lady getting her hair trimmed, and her hair was long and I guess unhealthy. The comments about the amount cut off reminded me how when I was younger I wasn't trying to cut my hair either. Friggin hairdressers with the life lessons. You gotta let go to grow. Made me think of other things we don't let go of. Jobs, relationships, clothes. I've been playing games and having fun with the energy, seeing what I need to let go of. Okay so onto the show, you know Pfizer is now FDA approved right? Ummmmmm. But remember we had to get vaccines for school. BUT, For the conspiracy theorist, they are not helping. You guys let those movies come out that just seem too close to real life and there are those of us who believe that it comes out in the movies first and then it happens in real life. I know your cool friends told you this. So you cannot blame people for not trusting you. Plus all the real-life crazy. They need to handle this much better. Onto Good news, living longer. A longevity researcher gives us some tips. More news and New Segment: The Nerd in Me, SO…there is an asteroid that will be passing near Earth in early Sept. this thing is Huge, larger than a football field and taller but Nasa says we are pretty much free of and direct hits until next century or so. Back after the break, the question that has been on my mind lately are labels. Are we separating ourselves more by labels or are they bringing us together? Labels or pictures create meaning for us and do we then live up to the label? When you first meet someone is it more about how nice you are rather than what your label/title is? So rather than me rambling on I went and asked some folks. So before we run outta here, I am gonna draw a random question from the candybowl. Gotta watch or Listen on the podcast platforms. Man this show was fun! Hit me up on social, if you have a question to go into the fishbowl or a topic I should ask folks about hit me up!

Hey Folks! So, I have been productive and just had a great weekend tour, I was blessed to play in VT and NY. So fun. Uh had a lil scare, got to have the driving while black in the middle of cornfields moment. Well, I don't know they were cornfields, but I was in the woods and my taillight went out. I had taken a puff before I hit the road, I just worked hella hard and I had the roach in the ashtray. Yea homie smelled it, I admitted yes, I took a puff and I got to take a DUI test or DWI whatever it is, yes I passed, because I travel and don't travel while fucked up. He kept asking me did you drink tonight? Question: Is it surprising to hear the DJ did not drink at the party? I rarely do. Anyhoo, in some other say word news, I bit the bullet guys. I got my first dose of the vaccine; I have some gigs coming up where I know I will be questioned or at least expected to have gotten one because of my role. Also, I am DJing a party tonight actually for nurses, who worked during the pandemic. So, I am not one who likes to be forced or told what to do, or live in fear so I did it. Surprisingly I did not get the Pfizer one. Do your research and choose, do not be forced. I trust and do not trust our government. Oklahoma, The Tuskegee experiment. I had so many questions. I got a few laughs, and some came from me. In some other news, the Aaliyah Book is dropping. I know the author!!! I know the author!!! Lmao, I bet she has been getting that for weeks. Get your copy and find out more about the artist and woman we all loved and miss. Babygirl, better known as Aaliyah. Ummmmm R Kelly's trial is also starting. Okay, Universe. Even that, is a straight result of me going thru the bullshit I did 15 years ago.

Word is orders are coming that all personal will have to get the vaccine. Switch, In some other news, Idris Elba is going to be the voice of Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog AND Shamar Moore. They trying to get us in the theaters y'all. Wait does anyone else have a hard time fantasizing about married celebrities? One more story…Robin from Batman and Robin will finally come out as bisexual. In a story I just had to share because it's facts…did you know the space program is real? The Air Force is now running the program of keeping the skies safe. Hmmmm. Btw The new name for UFO is  Unidentified Arial Phenomenon. Nuff said. Our storytime and topic today. Miscommunication.

Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.This week was good fun not only because we had the whole team together to record, but also because we are still basking in the endless glory of our winning a Webby earlier this week. Frankly we are still shocked. But happy-shocked, like when you get a new toy and it is covered in static electricity.Anyhoo, we had a packed show with much, much left on the floor as we tried to shoehorn the week into our time slot. Here's what we got into: The world of connections: Fave raised $2.2 million to connect fandoms, Somewhere Good raised $3.75 million to build feedless micro-communities, and both Spokn ($4 million) and Spot ($5 million) are hoping to use the spoken word to connect companies and their staffs. Honestly we think that the overall connection-community world is super exciting. Piano, one of those startups we actually have the luck of using, raised $88 million for analytics, subscription, and personalization tools. We get into why the round makes sense, and why one investor stood out more than the others. Corporate media: Coinbase is building out a media-ish org (Alex wrote about it here on his personal blog; Scrawler.co has more on the matter), and with TheSkimm hoping to find a corporate home and The Hustle doing the same, we had to dig into the matter. Our take is that content marketing is a response to expensive social advertising. And that it's fine. And that it is not news. Shoutout Forbes and its new union effort. Well done. Uptrust raised $2M, which let us talk about the venture-sized opportunity in fighting the billions of dollars wasted on useless mass incarceration. And then we chatted about the public markets. Monday.com's IPO is filed, Marqeta's IPO is filed, Squarespace's direct listing is done, and more. It's hectic out there for late-stage startups.The show flew by, much like our days recently, simply because it was so fun and jam-packed with news. And we got to make jokes about our listeners and Monday.com PR timing, so what else could we ask for? Talk soon!

Love is a noun, a nickname, a type of shack, a god, an emotion, a verb, and a score of zero in cyber-tennis (how'd they arrive at that one?). All things are not what they seem. I, Kirby, look slightly fatter than last week. Yet, my bloat is just a bellyful of apologies for the delay of this episode. As you'll see with your ears, we got our boat rocked in the making of it. What's in this episode? Hypothetically, your partner has their central nervous system threaded into an entirely new body – what would that entail? Let's just say a lot. Even in Neo Amsterdam, bodies don't grow on trees. When a body pops up, and the city council doesn't quite know what to do with it, circuits fry. Turns out there's a lot of insensitive folks out there trying to put us in a box. They try to define us. And if we resist, they may try to confine us. Pray it ain't solitary cyber-confinement. That smarts. I hope that clears it up! Oddly, this show is brought to you by S.T.U.A.R.T., Streaming Terms of Use Across All Registered Trans-media.

Great shown with the owners Candace and Shikha of C+S. Lu, xury Brand. on their CBD products, being an business owner in a pandemic, meditation, stretching, fitness, nutrition, all their products, COVID-19 , friendship, business, family life, yoga, and more! Hello there! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read our story. Each one of us have a story to tell and each of our stories are unique, right? It's an honor to be able to share our story. Well, lets see.. where do we start? Our names are: Candace and Shikha, hence, C+S. We are both creative entrepreneurs and we met at a wedding planning school in 2013. Yup! Everyone asks us the same question…a wedding planning school? It must be fate. We got along very well and our nature was very similar, our backgrounds were similar, turned out, we were both Virgos and into creative planning. Anyhoo, long story short, we became really good friends. What do we have in common? Many many things, almost everything :..)…one thing we both love to do is workout and plan things. Matter of fact, Shikha owns a dance/ yoga/fitness studio and Candace owns an event planning studio, both based in Los Angeles. During COVID-19 both of our businesses got shut down, lost numerous jobs and clients. Nevertheless, we stayed positive. Thanks to all the fitness regimen, yoga, meditation and practice of gratitude, we supported each other throughout the tough times via text messages. One day, we decided to catch up and workout. During that workout session, we ended up having a profound chat where we both discovered that we both adore the idea of giving and creating gifts. We both had a vision of creating thoughtful gifts. It was a no- brainer. Who doesn't love gifts? Giving and receiving gifts is a language of love. It is a form of expression. A gift can light up someone's face and brighten the day. Have you ever received gifts that made no sense? Like someone just picked it from the closest mart because it was available or cheap. How did that make you feel? Or when you received gifts that was curated to you like someone knew exactly what you wanted.. how did that make you feel? Giving gifts is not only about the person who is receiving it; it is also about the emotions of the person who is giving it. Giving gifts is a form of gratitude, a gesture of love, a feeling of joy, a sense of healing and a grace from the divine. We had to do it. We decided to create soulful luxury gift sets, hand picking and creating items that we both love. When we started sharing the products each one of us use and loved, we said.. “we could actually put it together and share it to others.” In that moment, C+S Luxury gifts was born. It felt perfect! Our hearts knew that it felt right. We decided to call it “ luxury gifts” because we all deserve to feel luxurious, each and every single one of us.. why? Because luxury doesn't mean just big mansions and fancy cars.. to us, luxury means the feeling of being loved, an open heart, self- love, taking care of yourself and your loved ones, sharing the simplicity and comfort of life, to experience living in abundance because this universe has so much to offer. Each products that we selected in C+S has been made with love and has good vibration. It is charged with love and gratitude. When you purchase these gifts, we are amplifying a circle of good energy. You are supporting a family and women with dreams and desires to serve millions around the world. So, we would like to say “Thank you” from the bottom of our hearts, for giving and receiving this luxurious gifts of love, for sharing beautiful energy and for supporting our livelihood. We are truly grateful.

Brian Kinney is a primetime Emmy-nominated makeup artist and a Journeyman in IATSE Hollywood Local 706 Make-up Artists and Hairstylists Guild, where he serves as Makeup Craft President and Executive Board Member. His work can be seen in feature films and television shows, such as Fear The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Westworld, Purge: Anarchy and CSI. Check out his extensive IMDb page to see the hefty list of credits. Brian came to my workshop just after Christmas 2019 and we had a great afternoon catching up and recording a chat. It seems funny to remember when you could just be in a room with other people normally and not wear masks... Anyhoo, we started our chat with the time Brian visited the workshops of Stuart Freeborn (original Star Wars trilogy, 2001, The Bridge Over The River Kwai) which is eye-watering nostalgic. Brian has a fantastic manner, combining the makeup artists skills with exquisite etiquette (plus a great voice for radio as you'll hear!). We chat about being responsible for things on set, how bosses may allocate tasks to their freelancers, case-hardening skills learned in makeup school in the real world and being available to help others. Check his website out here. He is on Instagram @bekinney. --------------------------------     Many thanks as always for your time checking the stuff out.

Well friends, it seems Quarantimes™ may finally be coming to an end. Gyms here in Virginia are starting to re-open and other parts of the country are either already open or not far off from beginning the process. Unless there’s a seismic shift in new cases of the virus, we’re on an upward trajectory towards some form of normalcy. The real question now is how will the fitness industry adapt to our new reality? Coronavirus isn’t miraculously vanished, of course, and it’s going to leave a lasting impact. Some businesses that couldn’t stay afloat have closed their doors permanently, and even corporate giants like Starbucks just announced they’re closing 400 stores in the US as a result of decreased sales due to the pandemic. So how will gyms fare? And what effects will this have on the other areas of the fitness industry? If you’re a coach or personal trainer, is it time to pivot to a new career path? To help make some Nostradamus-esque predictions, I invited Adam Schafer on the podcast. If you’re not familiar with Adam, he’s a host of Mind Pump, one of the biggest health and fitness podcasts, which garners over 1 millions listens every month. He’s also a coach who’s worked with over 1,000 people, and taught other coaches how to be better leaders and sell their services. So, Adam knows a thing or two about business and recognizing trends in the industry. In fact, that’s one reason why I started advertising Legion supplements on the Mind Pump podcast. Anyhoo, in this episode, Adam and I talk about … - The joys of texting - “Microinfluencers” and podcast advertising - How coronavirus will affect the fitness space including commercial gyms, home workout equipment, and country clubs - Why the fitness industry isn’t likely to disappear and will continue to grow - And more … So, if you want to hear our thoughts on where the fitness industry is headed, get out your crystal ball and hit play! 4:24 - Adam and Mike’s thoughts on texting 7:27 - Mike’s thoughts on Mind Pump’s coaching program 8:37 - Adam’s thoughts on effective advertising 22:33 - What is the future of fitness after COVID-19? 1:11:51 - How do you think COVID-19 is going to affect the macro trend? --- Mentioned on The Show: Legion VIP One-on-One Coaching: https://legionathletics.com/coaching/ --- Want to get my best advice on how to gain muscle and strength and lose fat faster?
