Jessie holds an MA in clinical mental health counseling from revere University and is a fierce Coach heartmath certified trainer and best selling author of if not you, then who? To learn more, visit Jesse Harless calm. Jesse, you know, you and I were just talking a second here, you and I met. It's been about four years ago. And it's just, it's amazing to see, you were saying you just started your journey, how far you've come along now. And even then, I was a fairly heavy drinker, then, at that point in time, and I don't think we I don't think we ended up doing a podcast, we did like an introduction, we had some conversation. What's interesting that I'd like to share with you I mean, it's been it's been nearly four years since I've had a drink. So it was shortly after you and I connected that, you know, I stopped drinking. And, you know, you had some spiritual experiences myself, which led into spiritual dope. So welcome back. You know, it's great to reconnect and you know, love to hear kind of what's going on with you right now. Jesse Harless 1:57 Yeah, well, congratulations on four years of recovery. That's awesome. And yeah, what a journey I'm sure that's been. And yeah, I'm, I'm grateful to be here. I'm grateful to have this discussion with you. And four years later, it's been it was four years this month, when I started out as an entrepreneur and left my job. So just a Brandon Handley 2:16 hell of a journey, right? A little a little scary, no doubt, especially especially the past past year or so probably, probably kind of scary for you, in terms of like, how is this all going to work out? I like to start this off with the whole idea, Jessie, that you and I are vehicles for source energy, God energy, whatever, whatever. You know, whatever you feel like that is, and it speaks through us. And if there's somebody on the other line that's listening in on the podcast today, that's going to hear a message that can only be delivered by Jesse through this podcast at this time. What is that message today? Jesse? Jesse Harless 2:51 Well, I mean, just like anything, I'm living by my heart and intuition, so it's whatever needs to come out today whoever's listening to this, you know, that's what's going to come out and that's how I live I'm an intentional person, intentional man, I set intentions every day and you know, that I let go, you know, it's about who I'm being not what I'm doing. So um, you know, that's really where I'm at today is just letting go. Brandon Handley 3:16 Of that is, uh, you know, I had a guy when I was doing the follow up for the rest of this podcast who didn't like the word intention. And I really, you know, I really couldn't put a finger on it. Has anybody ever kind of given you pushback or guff using that word yourself? Jesse Harless 3:38 No, I think if you know the definition, then you understand what it means and you'll understand that it's very powerful word just means what is your deepest desire your primary motivation that's all it is it doesn't have to be spiritual it's just your deepest desire primary motivation so instead of me getting up and and saying oh, I'm gonna get seven things done today and I'm gonna do all this stuff and you know, I'm going to do that anyways. So instead I'd rather set intentions and be like, you know, my intention today is to be present. My intention today is to be here now my intention is to be connected. So that's that's how I look at it as a way to get clear on my primary motivation and deepest desires for the day Brandon Handley 4:14 right No, that's me that's perfect and and to be honest with you, that was my view. I was like, how can you have a problem with the word intention and there's there's something behind it like there's something kind of like purpose driven. And like you're saying, you've got you following your kind of heart and intuition and you couple that with like, the intention and you've got something really the drive after with that. And also saw that, you know, your heart Master Trainer as well, what's that been like for you to kind of hop into that space? And, you know, are there people out there that might call that pseudo science and then like, what's your reaction been there? Jesse Harless 4:50 Yeah, definitely. It made people call, you know, eating fruit pseudoscience. So I mean, it's just, you know, it's each his own. And I think, you know, heart math is Something that came into my wheelhouse. After I went to the global event in Mexico, I was a co facilitator, I was invited to go out and meet the founders. And they ran this big global event. So as I facilitated on stage with them, and got to feel out their tribe, and the people who is who are involved over 100 people, I, you know, I said, Wow, there's something to this, let me investigate it. And they have all this technology, they have all this technology that actually, there's a piece of technology called the inner balance, and it actually can monitor heart coherence. So if that's pseudoscience, and I don't know what sciences, because that's backed by 400, peer reviewed studies, the the actual work that they're doing so, you know, if anything, it's more science and math or science I've seen because of the amount of studies they have. So yeah, it's it's a really interesting thing to think about. It's not suffered, we were taught in high school or growing up, but definitely, really something interesting to know that the, the heart in itself can take a memory, and this whole books on this, and the heart has its own nervous system. And I don't think people understand that, and that's okay. But it would be worth maybe researching. So yeah, so I got, I got certified and what's called heartmath interventions program, which is for I'm a clinical mental health counselor. So like, it's one of the things that I've done in a past life, but not really a past life, I just did it for my masters. And so that I did that training, which is for practitioners. And then, and then I went on to do the, what's called activating the heart of teams, which is bringing heart math into companies. And so yeah, it's been quite a journey, it's it's really interesting to use the self regulation techniques. So they're not teaching like meditation or teaching self regulation, which is probably the most important thing we could have ever in the history of the world is learning how to self regulate stress during all this pandemic stuff. And all this stuff we've been through. So yeah, it's it's a really interesting. It's a really interesting business concept. And I think that once you explore that, it's backed in a lot of the science of the heart, when we know about heart brain coherence. It's really much deeper than what I think people understand. Brandon Handley 7:13 Promise super high level, what is heart brain coherence? Jesse Harless 7:18 Well, it's a ways for your, your actual physical heart, to start to get into harmony and balance with your actual mind. And the way that can happen is through deep breathing is one of the ways or this conversation, as we didn't accommodate this conversation, we're still gonna, we're gonna feel a sense of like, not exactly flow, but you could call it that might be one way to describe it. And that's coherence. It's like these perfect sine waves. So both of our hearts were connected to the inner balance machine, we would actually see this coherence between both of our heart rate variability. So there's a space between the heart rhythms or the heartbeat. And the space in between the heartbeat is these heart rhythms, you can measure them. And if you're angry and resentful, which you might have been before, when you were drinking all the time, that is, we would have hooked up your heart, or let's say, know your heart, but hooked up your, let's say, with that machine that actually is Bluetooth and connects to your ear. So we would see through your heart rhythms, that you would have this really this rigidity, we would have saw this rigidity in your heart rate variability, because you'd have been angry, resentful, probably a little snappy. But when we're when you're in the flow, and now maybe at times in the morning, during your coffee or prayer, you're you're you're in the state of coherence, and we can actually see these perfect sine waves, which is these perfect waves that are created when you're in this state of heart, brain harmony. So that's the most simplest way there's scientific ways to explain it. But to keep it really simple, there's just the heart and the mind coming into balance and coming into harmony. And you do it all the time. It's happening all the time. But you know, you can also measure it now, which is kind of neat. Brandon Handley 9:02 And that, being able to measure that does not allow you to figure out ways to get into coherence. And if I'm kind of following a little bit here, that would also help you and your self regulation. Jesse Harless 9:14 Exactly. It's all about self regulation. Because if you're in a state of coherence, you are regulating your state, your emotional state, your spiritual state, your mental state, it's coming into balance, so that you're actually feeling like, Oh, and by the way, you know, the studies that they've shown is that even your immune system is boosted. When you're in a state of coherence, it can actually boost your immune system, it can really release certain hormones that help boost immunity. So it affects your memory, it affects your performance. So if you want to have higher performance, you want to have greater memory, getting in a state of coherence. This is what athletes do is what CEOs text, you know, tech startup people who are really trying to get out there and make a difference in the world. They'll use these coherence techniques. They're called coherence techniques. self regulation techniques, but they're specifically called coherence techniques. And this is a way for the mind to have like, and some people would say, like, if you're talking about Joe dispenza, and these different people, they would say, you'd have super memory, you know, and Stephen, you know, okay, again, some people would call that pseudoscience. But other people would say, that's changed my life. So it's one of those things where, you know, when I was on the outside of it just kind of looking in, it was kind of like, Well, you know, I don't really know. And then when I was deep inside of it, and having all the studies and reading from all these doctors, and really looking at the work, and then doing it myself for over two years, you know, that's all the anecdotal evidence and actual peer reviewed evidence that I needed to be like, wow, this is something that's happening all the time in teams, high performing teams are in a state of group or team coherence. And that's why that's why they're performing at a high level. Brandon Handley 10:58 So outside of outside of where I work, I've never heard anybody else really kind of talk about like high performing teams, right? So love to love to kind of touch on what that looks like. From from this perspective, like what's it look like to approach like a large business right now. And I think that I think that we're on like this cusp of of this type of conversation being easier and easier to, to approach like a large business to say, hey, I want to talk to you about your team and your heart mind coherence, and, you know, how that can be beneficial to you? What's the reception like? What's I guess? What's the pitch like for that? And then, you know, what's the, what's the reception man? Jesse Harless 11:39 Well, I, you know, to back up a little bit. So heart math is not my primary selling tool, you know, so I'm a professional facilitator. So I have been trained in what's called exchange facilitation. And so that's what actually taught me how to actually get in front of people, and actually how to make conversations worth have having happen. And and create a state where there's actual opportunities to experience change, where instead of being the, you know, the, the guru with all the answers at the front, the guy the sage on the on the guide on the side, who's helping people to facilitate conversations worth having that the company is not having. And so coming into a company, that's primarily what I do is I help them tune into their innate resilience. Now, on top of that, as a small segment of the time I have with them, which could be a 60 minute Lunch and Learn or it could be a two hour three hour event, I will bring in something like a heart brain coherence technique, because this is being used by state troopers. This is being used by the US Navy, this is being used by major institutions. So I'm bringing that in at one piece, to teach them how they can self regulate, which is a huge thing for HR. Because with the rise and climb of marijuana, and rise and climb of alcohol use and mental health decline in the workplace right now, which is probably the worst we've seen, there's never been a better time to start to teach self regulation techniques. But that's not the primary reason I'm hired to come in. And my primary reason for coming in is to teach innate resilience, to teach them to start to be able to co create or crowdsource their highest strengths, crowdsource success factors of why they're a high performing team. So that's kind of primarily where I'm coming in. And then when I'm there, it's like sneaking the medicine with the cheese. Now that I'm there, now I'm going to teach them a technique that they're not going to be learning during their nine to five, I'm going to bring it to them as like a heart mass certified trainer or a clinician, because I'm technically a clinician, so I'll bring into teach self regulation, only for a small segment of it. But it can be a significant opportunity for them to start to just practice deep breathing and heart brain coherence. Brandon Handley 13:51 Gotcha. Let's talk a little bit about the path of like, headed into sobriety, right, like what were some of the what were some of the things that flipped a switch for you got you into wanting to be sober? And what are some of the steps that you took, you know, who was suggested before this Jesse? Right? And, you know, the reason I like to do this is one of the one of the things that I was actually interviewed last night. But similar podcast is like, some people forget where they came from, right? And it's like, well, we're, you know, Justin, you might have been a sinner before you became a saint. Right? And yeah, so who was the center, Jesse versus the st. Jesse, what we're seeing right now. And we're it's transition, Jesse Harless 14:38 where you got to ask yourself, what is addiction? What does even mean? So we know what the definition of addiction is, which is, diction is, you know, according to gabber, Ma Tei, is anything that you do repeatedly. That causes pleasure in the short term, but has negative consequences in the long term. So when I say that definition of addiction, I just called out about 99% of your audience out there have addiction or probably 100 Because there's something in their life that they're doing that that does have pleasure, maybe they're eating at night, like 11 o'clock at night, they're still eating, you know, food addiction, maybe they're caretaking. Maybe they're people pleasing. Maybe they're all about validation at work. These are all addictions. So, you know, for me my addiction, hold on one second, Brandon's gotta grab a little sip of water here. Thank you. So, for me, addiction started with trauma, because trauma is the root cause of addiction for most people. Now, when people say think of trauma, they think of sexual abuse, or they think of physical abuse. But that's not just what trauma is. trauma is includes that but trauma could be your best friend moving away when you were nine years old. Trauma could be the divorce your parents had at seven. There's there's many, many different ways that people experienced trauma, which is can be physical, it can affect your nervous system. So for me, when I was a child, my dad left at four never came back, never saw him again in person. And it was also in a car accident, I put him in a coma for 22 days, so so he had brain damage permanently. So at four years old, I experienced significant trauma. And then we moved a bunch of times. So from that point on, it set the stage of how I was going to self regulate my emotions, how I was going to regulate my, you know, my little nervous system. And the reality was, I didn't have a lot of coping mechanisms. So when it up happening is I found things ways to numb out. And then eventually I picked up physical substances, like drugs, like alcohol. But that didn't come to later. That came probably when I my first year of college, you know, I dabbled before that. But when I got that first year of college, that's when I started to really jump into substances and alcohol. And when I flunked out of college, which then added to my trauma, because now I'm the only son to ever attempt college and I failed. I'm the only person in my family to attempt college and I fail. And so now I feel the unworthiness again, which is an addiction and a trauma in itself. Because you can become addicted to your unworthiness. So I actually felt like a piece of shit. And then when end up happening at 20, my father died. And even though he wasn't in my life, when he died, it was my It was the first time I used cocaine. And so that's all it took at 20 was for me to have that experience and chase after that for the next two years, to bring me all the way to a place where I was going to go to prison because of it. So that's kind of what happened to me. That's my story. And then I found recovery at 22. And it wasn't, you know, wasn't like an option. It was like prison or recovery. So I was like, Okay, I'm going to do the recovery, of course, I'm not going to go to federal prison, because I didn't have state level charges was federal. So I'm like, I'm gonna change my life. So 22 got into recovery. And then from there, recovery kept evolving. So recovery, recovery met at 22. And what it means now for 16 years later, almost is different. But some of the fundamentals are the same. So that's kind of the higher level backstory of that. Brandon Handley 18:07 Yeah, thanks for sharing and and Jesse just because, right? Sometimes some people are still stuck maybe in, in between, right in between, like, hey, maybe I'm going through recovery right now, my life has always been shit. And I've always had this unworthiness. And, you know, I've always been looking for these ways to numb out and I don't know if my lives are gonna turn around. And you're proof, though, of like, you know, how can you take what you went through? and turn it around? and turn it into something useful for others, right? How can you All right, now that you've been through this process, and you figured out ways to regulate, and you figured out some of the signs and symptoms, and you've got a way that you can help people now because of what you've been through? Jesse Harless 18:54 Yeah, exactly. I mean, it's lived experience, I've helped a lot of men, I've helped a lot of women throughout my last 16 years, I'm very blessed that I was able to do that. But I also learned a lot about addiction. And I learned a lot about myself. So I think that's the key is like, at some stage of the game, you have to take a look at your own deal. You have to look at like, what's really running my life? Am I running my life? Or is my trauma running my life? Am I running my life? Or is my emotional addictions running my life? So that's really where, you know, for me, I had to take a hard look at that later into recovery. I wasn't even able to see a lot of that until later on in recovery, to really understand the role trauma plays, and the way that emotional injuries that had happened in the past was still playing into adulthood. And it was causing me not to step into the mature masculine man, it was still keeping me stuck. It was keeping me in that loop of a wounded spiritual ego. And I see a lot of that happening in recovery. So I think that that's where, for me, that's the stage of the journey I'm in now. I was I wasn't there 10 years ago, but now I'm in that stage of the journey of taking a hard look, that there was no initiation into manhood. There was no You know, steps for me to feel whole and feel like I could step up and do what I needed to do. And now today, I do feel that, and one of the reasons is because I have gotten out of my comfort zone, I have faced a lot of fears. And I've had done, I've done it with a lot of support, because I realized that asking for help was the number one thing that is the wounded masculine, is not asking for help, even in recovery. So that's where, you know, these are things that took a while to come into my wheelhouse, you know, these are blind spots. But once I surrounded myself with certain men, certain people that could understand that and were living that it was like, oh, wow, this is how I want to live now. And that's when, you know, entrepreneurship, and this idea of a new type of freedom started to happen, because I realized that like, Oh, I'm still operating in many ways, from loops that are happening when I was 20. So that's not serving me as a loving adult. Brandon Handley 20:58 We're talking about like the wounded ego, spiritual ego, in recovery, and people getting kind of stuck in a loop, what's something that you've been able to learn or figure out that can help somebody get get past that? Jesse Harless 21:11 Well, I think a lot of people are stuck in there. They're like, stuck in ways that they don't even understand like that there is a way out because they're already in recovery. So they kind of feel like this. Is it. Like, I don't think it's better than this, but I'm just grateful. But that's the whole problem. It's like you're, but I'm grateful. It's like, No, you're not. So the reality is you're not grateful. So what are we going to do about it, and part of it is really getting clear of your purpose. When you start to get clear of your purpose, that's when all of these things pop up. Soon as you're like, Oh, I'm going to go write that book. That's when all the boom, that trauma comes up, oh, I'm going to go do this. I'm going to travel here, I'm going to take my family here, I'm going to make this happen, I'm going to start this business, all of a sudden, all these fears come up. And what we can do is we can numb out emotionally, or we can run towards them, ask for help get a coach, talk to someone who's been there, get a mentor, and then go forward towards the fear, feel the fear and do it anyway. So it's kind of like that idea that your fears are the compass to where your full potential is. So so that it's that simple. Like when you if you feeling that way in recovery, and especially if you're not feeling that way, because you're not in recovery, either way, you can actually feel it when you go out and go to do something that you know is going to benefit your life and you can't do it. That's that those are the things that are blocking you from your purpose. And you can say divine purpose, because I believe we all have one of those So, so the that's the compass. And so when I, when I left my job four years ago, this month, I came up against the greatest fears I ever faced, because I realized, like, Oh my god, I was playing it small inside of the company, not living out my true potential. And as soon as I left, and I had to figure things out, it was like, Oh, my God, what did I do, but it was also the most exciting journey of my life. Because I could finally start to see how I was playing much smaller than what I'm capable of. And four years later to, it's still expanding, it's still growing, you know, because when you're on your own now you have to figure out how you're going to make a living without having someone to support and you know, there's nothing wrong by the way with having a job that's I'm not knocking a job I had 18 years, but what I'm saying is, for me, I had to make the jump, because I needed to get that that on the other side of that healing so I could help others and serve others. Brandon Handley 23:30 But know that that's awesome, right? I think that the idea to have surrounding yourself by some of those strong and encouraging men to get you there. Right? And haven't haven't that kind of support. And then you're talking about that jump to was a have another buddy of mine that I always make the joke of nobody makes their first leap right? It's really, it is very, very matrix II like you know, trying to make that leap from your corporate your corporate gig and you kind of got almost a protection there, right? And then now you're like, Alright, well I'm gonna drop all that I'm gonna try and make this jump and in the movie, of course, you know, he falls and hits his face and it's all kind of bloodied. It's just like it's all in the mind, though. Right? In the matrix, right? Real similar to these fears that you're butting up against the sun was thinking about Jeopardy, that science experiment where you put the penny on top of the water. surface tension never did that. So I mean, basically, you can float a penny on top of water just because of surface tension. That's real close real similar to our fears, right? You can do it. And there's that tension right there on the edge. But right past that edge is where the breakthrough happens, right? everything kind of opens up and that's where the growth is. And it's unlimited, right? I mean, that's kind of the beauty of it. That's what I'm hearing you say to right like it's just keeps growing and growing and growing. Yep. Jesse Harless 24:50 Yeah. And never and never stops. Really. Because what I thought I hit I, you know, the beginning of this year was one of the hardest times of my life. And you know, I figured out Well, no, the hardest time My life are over there already past those already had those when I was 22. And it happened this year. And I realized that like, Oh my god, there's higher ceilings I can get, I can break through higher ceilings, and that's what happened this year. And it's the best thing that's ever happened to me. So that's where, you know, it's exciting because there is unlimited growth potential. And I think that's what life is about is, is living on that edge. But like not living on the edge, so that, like you're drinking alcohol and doing drugs every day, and you're barely making it by someone I mean, I mean, like living on the edge of like, Oh, I'm, I'm a little too comfortable right now I need to figure out where can I push myself and also take care of myself, you know, put myself first and have the self care needs, so I can serve my family. But also, what is the edge where where can I be today that can help me to really grow. And for me, like, there's always an intention. That's why it goes back to intentions of like, you know, my intention is to live my divine purpose. So what does that mean, exactly. And some days, that could just mean taking care of myself and self care. And I think every day is a good day for that. But some days, it could be like finishing the audio book, it could be doing things that are hard, that take a lot of work. But you know, on the other side of that it's very rewarding, and it's serving people it's serving. My purpose is connected to serving people. So I think, yeah, I think we can we can find a healthy balance between our comfort zone and being outside of our comfort zone. Brandon Handley 26:28 Yeah, I mean, I've got that written down here actually, is my next question says, I can't cope. What's the finding the right balance of growth? New, how do you keep yourself from, say burnout? Especially as an entrepreneur especially? Or even how do you find like you were saying, The, there was a point where it was pretty scary, divine intervention, but then it's like, it doesn't sound like you're driven by fear. You know, as far as I can tell, you're driven by an abundance mindset. How do you maintain that right? Or what do you do when you catch yourself? In a fear based mindset? Jesse Harless 27:05 Well, I think that a lot of people think abundance is like having a Ferrari, they don't understand that abundance is simply having food in your fridge abundance is simply having walls, to some, you know, structure of your house to keep you warm, like that's abundance. And I think as soon as we start tuning into gratitude of what we already have, that's when we unlock this energy that we're able to then get more of what we're already seeking, which really is not money. We're trying to seek security, we're trying to seek safety, we're trying to seek love. So that's really where that abundance mindset is really useful is like, instead of me getting up and saying, Oh, I wish I had this. And I wish I had that, which is what's going on a lot of times, even when people are praying. So instead of that, I rather say, Oh, thank you so much that I have that fresh water in my house, and then I have, you know, the food in my fridge. And then I have already what I have like that. Now if I do need my if there are needs and money that is needed to have, it's like, Okay, well, let me ask for help that, instead of like, trying to say that I have it all figured out, let me actually humble myself, and surrender and be able to ask for help and see what happens and not judge with the support comes from. And I think that was the big epiphany and 2021 for me is asking for help. And then allowing the help to come from wherever is going to come from, because anything else is me controlling that as an ego. That's an ego based mindset. So I was able to let go. So abundance is a very powerful shift, you know, from where we might be living in this current moment. But it doesn't mean that we're aiming to be millionaires, it just means that we're being abundant. And in our emotions, we're being abundant, our mental state, we're being abundant, our spiritual state. So that to me is like the shift. And once you start asking for help, be ready, because it's going to come, it might take three months, it's coming. Brandon Handley 28:56 So I mean, you're also not asking, you're saying that you're letting go the control, right? So the timing? Well, it's great if it happens sooner than later. Sounds like you're also just being open to it and allowing for it to show up when it's absolutely probably most needed. It's probably shows up right then. Jesse Harless 29:17 Yeah, because it could be a friend calling you out. And you're like, wait, that's not the help I wanted, but you don't get it, you don't get to choose it. And that's my point, you might start asking for help. And all of a sudden someone calling you out on your behavior that you didn't even see. And that's the beauty of it. You can't dictate then what it is and where the Help is going to come from. So it can be unexpected. But that's the whole point of staying surrendered and hoping and open to what is to come and, and that whole idea of surrender is not a word that a lot of men like because they're operating from this wounded masculine idea that they have to do everything themselves. And I did that too. They used to call me stressy Jesse, okay, they used to call me that for a reason. That wasn't like, you know that people really calling me that It's because why I try to control everything. I try to control everything. And I try to do everything I could not to ask for help. Even in recovery, I'm talking about no asking for help, you know, oh, I don't need you. I've already been through all this stuff, like all I can do, I'll just have my own goals. And you know what, that's why, you know, to tie it back to the intentions because, you know, whoever needed to hear the intention talk like four times is coming up. Because here's the thing is I was the gold Master, I would set so many goals, I would crush goals. I have all these certifications that I've done, not just heart math, all these ones. And part of me having those. Yeah, of course, some is just like, Oh, I want to better myself and get more education. But some of that is unworthiness. I was doing it out of a sense of validation unworthiness. And this is what I mean, when you start to ask for help. You might have a friend who's very connected to and knows you. And they start to tell you this, that brother you have, you still feel unworthy? And it's like, Whoa, damn, ouch. And it's true. Brandon Handley 30:57 Yeah, that's not just that, that's super powerful. As a matter of fact, I was talking to another friend of mine, who's putting putting some of her stuff together. And she she was just talking about She goes, Well, is it gonna matter that I've only been a professional for x, y, z period of time? I'm like, No, I just put yourself out there and start walking towards it. I mean, everybody started at a certain level at some point. And I think to your point, you know, that's someone worthiness, right? I'm not I'm not good enough to do X, Y, or Z, even though maybe I'm really good at it. Already. Jesse Harless 31:31 Yeah. I mean, it's people way more talented than me, Brandon, way more talented to me. Like I meet people all the time. They're friggin they were professional singers and actors and, and all this stuff. And they're like, yeah, you know, I don't want to write a book. And I don't want to do this. And I'm like, you have like, 10 times the capabilities I have. And I've already on my third book. So what do you even mean, you are more qualified than I ever was. And so this is, this is where I think we have this. And this is where I tie it back to what is addiction? People think addiction is their uncle who's drinking all the time. No, addiction is your emotional addiction to unworthiness. So this is what I mean. And so once we start to see that clearly, we can start to say, Oh, well, then who? How can I ask for help? How can I get some help, so I can start to maintain consistency, accountability, and really go towards these things that I'm avoiding. And, and then that really, on the other side of those things, is where you start to emerge as let's say, the warrior, but the balanced warrior, you're not just being this person who's this tyrant. So I think, you know, these are the lessons I have learned very much later in my recovery, like recently, where, you know, you know, it all just happens in the timing it happens in but you know, this information, could this have benefited me at 18 or 25? And how Oh, my God, yeah. But and so it's all good. It's all good, because now I can take it and really appreciate it. Brandon Handley 32:54 For sure. You mentioned your divine purpose, Jessie, what would you say that is? Jesse Harless 33:01 Well, you know, I used to just say purpose, I used to just say purpose all the time. Okay, your purpose, and it's huge. People ask me, what's the number one kit, what's the number one reason people stay in addiction recovery, and I'll tell them purpose, they have some type of purpose. And you know what, like, eventually one day I was like, You know what, it's if you're living your purpose that's divine, like that's divine, it means that like you're actually choosing to live from your heart, not just your mind. And that's simply what it is it's really choosing to every day to live from my heart space, use my mind as a tool, but realize it's not my master and being able to live my life from that heart space. So the divine purpose is simply like you know, I'm choosing to use my strengths, I know what my top strengths are. So using my top strengths, to be able to help people to share their stories in the world and me helping to help them to see their strengths and show them that their story is important. So that's kind of my divine purpose is to help others to share their story in a loving and powerful way and give them a platform to do that. So that's that's what I do as a professional facilitator or as a coach is I help people to do that and then they get to try to figure out what their divine purposes but again, here's what's cool about your purpose exchanges. So you might be like okay, this is my purpose and guess what Coronavirus hits you know guess what something else hits in your life a storm and you know what it's all good and your purpose starts to shift and change and that's cool it evolves so it's to me it doesn't have to be a set in stone thing and never is and never has been for me and But yeah, I am I like to think it's divine. Brandon Handley 34:42 I look I'm all about it obviously spiritual dope right? Being been in this face and you know the divine is a To me it's a mindset divinity is a mindset right and grabbing hold of that and then allowing yourself to be filled with that. It's a game changer. All right. Speaking of spiritual dope you know I always think about like, the whole idea of sounds like you're you're you're hitting a spiritual dope is having somebody see that breakthrough moment or something like that. What are some other like hits a spiritual dope for you when you're filled with you know, I think you talked about it being being in your flow states what are what's what's something that gets in the flow state or into feeling connected to source? Jesse Harless 35:30 Well I mean I love nature I'm an earthy person, I love being outdoors. I love doing earthing. I never wear shoes, I never wear socks, you're gonna see me always barefoot every day. 365 even in New Hampshire, you know, like, yeah, I wear shoes when I need to but like I'm barefoot, you know, because I love to be connected to the earth. I live in New Hampshire I have beautiful forest all around me, we got the white far, we got the National Forest not far from me. So I you know, my big thing is connected with nature. So it's connecting with the wildlife, it's just, you know, being outside and, and feeling connected to this, like planet where like these little ants on this planet, we think we run everything, we own everything. And it's like, you know, we got to get humble, because we don't, and, you know, just feeling connected and part of nature feels, you know, puts me in the flow state. So that's kind of the end of in my house, you know, where I'm living. You know, you can see behind me, there's plants everywhere I have plans, I have two big plants right here, I got a huge one back there, that's over 25 years old, all to the left of me is his, his plants. I have a running waterfall, you know. So these are things that just remind me of what's important. And, you know, so another way that I get into the flow state is, is is facilitation. Because what I like about it is I'm not that, like I said, the guru, I'm actually asking questions, I'm asking questions that are inquiring into people's lives or business. And there'll be they can actually take the time to answer the questions themselves, and then talk to each other. So it's really, you know, that that makes me excited, because I don't have all the answers, you know, and I let them crowdsource answers, and then we come up with the best answer together, because the answers that they could come up with a much better than what I could come up, come up with. So it's, you know, collectively, you know, using our strengths together to, you know, come up with solutions. And by the way, I do this in addiction recovery, I do this for states. So the state of Georgia I work with and I help them to come up with so you know, different solutions to crowdsource addiction recovery. So, you know, these are lived experiences that that helped me to be in that flow state. And you know, I would say my book that I just released. Absolutely. I didn't think of myself as a writer until I wrote this last book. And I realized, like, oh, maybe I am a writer. I mean, I don't write every day. But you know, my next book, is the confidence I have to write the next book is because the last book I wrote, when I now I'm doing the audio book, when I'm reading it back to myself, or hearing, I'm like, wow, I actually did a pretty good job with the writing of this book, the actual art of the writing. And so, you know, so guess writing can put you in a flow state to? Brandon Handley 38:03 Yeah, thanks for sharing that. What's the what's the latest book that your Jesse Harless 38:07 latest book I wrote is called, if not using who harness restraints to shift from addiction to abundance. Nice, Brandon Handley 38:15 high level, you know, target audience? Jesse Harless 38:18 Well, the high level is the beginning of the book. The first four chapters is my story. I literally write it like a memoir. So it starts out as a memoir, because if you're in mental health, or addiction recovery, it's all about stories. It's about hearing that story want to connect the stories. So I started off with the story. And then the final five chapters of the book, or the six chapters, but the five chapters the meat of the book is, is this toolkit, it's a toolkit that I've learned from leaving my job and way before leaving the job. But solidifying when I left the job, I started to learn techniques to become an entrepreneur. And so the entrepreneurial techniques that I learned actually tie into addiction recovery, they actually help each other, they feed off each other. Because if you're an addiction recovery, you're trying to live a self directed life. And a self directed life is what entrepreneurship is about. So you're trying to reach your full potential, you're improving your health and wellness. This is the definition of recovery. And it also applies into entrepreneurship. So the book is like 10 years of things I've learned from mentors and coaches. But it's also recently in the last four or five years learning from mentors like how l rod and john berghoff, and all these different people that came into my direct experience that helped me to see like, Whoa, these are tools we need to be using in addiction recovery. This isn't stuff we can put off because we're looking at what's happening in the world and decline of life of human life with the opioid, you know, issue going on and all the things that are happening, what we're doing is not working. Some things are a lot or is not so. So the book is is if you say the target audience would be for someone who has a family member or themselves are looking to live their best life because I chose instead of writing a memoir, I chose to write a self help memoir, which has a five chapter toolkit, which is called fears actually. Brandon Handley 40:06 Okay, what's that? What's the acronym stands for? Jesse Harless 40:10 So fears is focus on your recovery, elevate your recovery, appreciate your recovery, resilience and recovery, self care recovery in the 30 action steps. And within each of those is to me having that, that complete life is to have that abundant life if you're doing those five actions, which is really 30. But if you're, if you're thinking about how do I focus on my recovery every day, your recovery might not be from drugs and alcohol, folks, this is what I'm trying to say here isn't isn't just substances. This is this is could be recovery from caretaking recovery from people pleasing every day. And so how do I stop doing that you do the steps in the book that help you to live your purpose. And that's really where it leads to. And focus, you know, so I won't break each of them down. But but that's what it is, it's a way to, like, what helped me and the men that I've been teaching for over a decade in women, but a lot of men, it's, it's like, how do I do it? And that's what I put in the book. It's like, here's the start. And then from there, you read your next 10 books, but here's a book that's gonna get you started. And, you know, it's just my life experiences. Brandon Handley 41:15 Not something sounds powerful Jesse, and I think to the author to the extent of separating men and women from the, I think they're interesting, obviously, they're intrinsically different, right? And how this journey goes. And to be able to have somebody such as yourself, you know, that's really tuned in to how the the male processes this and goes through it, and to have somebody lead them through that. I think that's really important. Jesse Harless 41:42 Yeah, absolutely. And what's ironic is I coach more women than men, but that's just the way it works out in the private practice, but but in reality, when you're in early recovery, and then you're, you know, I left the job, it's like, you go to a lot of these places, and it's, and it's men and women separate. So like, when I was first starting out running workshops, it would be with men. And so and, and then today, I realized, like, yeah, I can run workshops for both. But I can tell you that if I just niche down and start to really focus on men, I'm gonna help a lot of men because a lot of men don't trust their intuition. A lot of men look at things as weaknesses that are strengths. So this is where, like, kind of my heart is, is to help those men Brandon Handley 42:22 for sure, for sure, and I think that that you probably found right, especially in Western society, is that men are very head driven, right, and you're talking about the heart and head coherence piece, and you're getting them to make that connection and to trust it just a little bit. And I think that that's, I think that's powerful. And I think it's awesome that you're doing this work, Jesse. So let me break this down for you. We've got a little just a little more longer here. And what I like to do here is what I like to call kind of like a spiritual speed dating, just the I'm just gonna pick like one question that this bank of questions and I know there's somebody out there looking for the next spiritual date, you could be it Jesse. All right, let's see, we got um what does it mean to live in the present moment? Jesse Harless 43:11 Yeah, for me, living in the present moments, everything, I spent most of my life with anxiety which is living in the future. So you know, so living in the present moment I do everything I can to live in the present moment, I'm literally standing on a grounding mat that's connected to the wall right now. So I'm always trying to stay in the present moment. I'm trying to live right here I'm trying to look you in the eye right in this moment, and be with you now. And just just not think just be so that I can just allow whatever is coming out of me to come out of me. I didn't know what I was gonna say today and that's how I like to live my life. So that is the present moment as I can clearly hear that subtleness of intuition and be able to trust it that is leading me in the right direction, trust my feelings, I can't feel my feelings and emotions if I'm not living in the present moment I'm going to be stuck in some type of battle between the future and the past. And I already spent enough time living in the past and I spent a lot of time live in the future so I know when I'm living in the present moment and it's real simple it's it's I can hear my breath I can hear my heartbeat I'm can be with you right here now I can hear him what I'm saying. It's that's me being in the present moment. So being in the present moment is everything for you to start to live as connected to your purpose. Brandon Handley 44:25 God thanks, Jesse. Thanks a lot. The the What else we got here? Get one more for me to do to do. What is your one wish for World Jesse? Jesse Harless 44:39 It's a big one. I mean, as a probably a few but I would say one of the big wishes is to understand what addiction really means. And I think if we can start to understand what addiction really means we're going to change the whole world. So I that's my hope is to understand the definition of addiction. And to understand that addiction is not simply your uncle who struggle with alcoholism, your addiction is you So that's going to, we understand that we're gonna have a lot more compassion for people, we're going to understand that people are fighting daily battles every single day, your parents are fighting battles, your cousin, you know, all these people are getting these, these these difficult situations that are stemming from addiction. And so I think for me, it's like, once we start to understand the definition of addiction, that it's not just a generic genetic brain disease, and you're doomed. It's it's as simple as, like, all I keep doing is I keep going back to my unworthiness every day. That's my primary addiction. And so when we start to know that type, that there is social emotional addictions, I think that's going to change the world, because then we're going to band together as a one as a tribe and say, how can we help each other with our addictions? Because we're all numbing out in some way. Brandon Handley 45:46 Yeah, just Yeah, I think that's powerful. I love how you've you've kind of reframed addictions beyond, you know, drinking and drugs, and really just kind of put it into a space of a couple of places you put it into that resonate with me is is the numbing out? Yeah. Right. And then, you know, the, the unworthiness, you know, kind of loop right, getting stuck in these loops, as an addiction, right, and recognizing those as as addictions. And, you know, if we band together, like you're saying, and kind of act as one against the human act as one against it, right, like I come from, you know, what can we do for the positive outcome? Right? What can we do that? I mean, I think that your your, your group runs through some of you guys, what was it? appreciative inquiry, right, I think that's where I learned from, from from some of them, some of those groups. So what is this positive outcome of understanding the true definition of addiction? And what can we do to kind of break those shackles? Right, break those loops? I love it. I love it. Jesse, where can people go to find out more about you? Who should be working with you? Who should be reaching out to you? Some of that stuff? Jesse Harless 47:00 Yeah, I mean, if you can find me at my website, Jesse Harless Comm. You know, that's, that's probably the best place is a contact form there, you can grab a copy of my journal, I created a journal to go along with the book that's free, and grab the journal there. So I think that's probably where you can understand more about me who I work with, and what I'm doing in the world, you know, and I don't have a big social media following. I learned that from some of my mentors, so that's actually the most the most, that's not the most important thing. So it's quite unprofessional myself with that. So I mean, if you want to really reach out to me, you need help you need something, you know, go ahead and reach out to me, I respond to every single person. So go ahead and reach out and I'm happy to help. Brandon Handley 47:38 Jesse, I can't believe you're saying social media presence isn't the most important thing. What did you learn from your mentors? That is, Jesse Harless 47:44 well, I have a mentor who's very successful in that he has one of the most biggest he has one of the biggest Facebook groups in the world. But I also have one that has no, no social media following, he makes just as much money. So it's not about money. It's about impact. And he's making just as much impact without a social media. So it's really shows me that either way. So that's where our ego wants to be like, Oh, it's the reason I don't have money is because I only have 1000 followers, and I can prove you wrong with that one. So that's so that's what I'm, that's what I thought I was like, Oh, I need to get the funnel. I need to get the emails, I need to do this. But here's the thing is, it's you don't have to do that you can do without that. But it's all about specializing, what do you specialize in who you're speaking to? And having your own platform? You know, and that kind of helps you not to have to create a social media platform if you have your own platform? Brandon Handley 48:31 For sure, for sure. No, thanks for that response. I mean, I think it's important to hear that right. And it's not just important to hear from random people, you've you've had experience, you know, these people that have, you know, been successful. And I think that we also tend to forget that maybe, I don't know, less than 20 years ago, there wasn't a social media and there were plenty of successful people. Yeah, that's for sure. Right? Right. So Hey, everybody, thanks for checking Jesse out, make sure you go check out his site, Jesse harless.com. And learn more about him. Jesse, thanks for being on today. I really appreciate what you're doing. Jesse Harless 49:05 Yeah, Brandon, thank you so much for reaching out. This is great.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Rhea: Hi Dr. Cabral - Can you please provide a point of view on Waveblock's radiation deflectors for Bluetooth earbuds? While it deflects radiation from the ear/brain, could that be absorbed elsewhere in the process of deflection? I would love to know if you think this is a safe solution. THANK YOU! MORE INFO ON WAVEBLOCK: Maelys: Hello Doctor. I discovered your podcast few months ago and I listen to you every morning on my way to work. Thank you for sharing all this knowledge. I have hidradenitis suppurativa, it is « genetics » as my sisters, mom and her mom also suffer from it. Do you have any advices? Have you help any client to put it in remission? I have been very ill for the last year and a half. I am literally feeling half alive… I found a great GP that diagnosed candida overgrowth (Candida albicans) currently treating it with nilstat I am wondering if those 2 conditions could be linked? Therefore HS won't' be genetics but a symptom of candida overgrowth that is transmitted by the mother's vagina canal at birth? Thank you Leandro:Hi Dr. Cabral. I enjoy listening to your podcast and have learned a lot from them. I wanted to ask if you ever tried Magic Spoon cereal and would you recommend it? It's supposed to be a healthy alternative to traditional cereal. https://magicspoon.com/ Thanks, Leandro Danielle: Hi Dr. Stephen Cabral, Big fan of yours! I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos Hypothyroidism and have been detoxifying my environment. For the past 2 years I have been working with Polymer Clay as a hobby. I recently looked into what this "non-toxic" clay was made out of and it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. Would you advise staying away from this material as someone with an autoimmune disease? Thank you! Hilary: Hi Dr Cabral, I am a new listener and am a huge fan, currently working through the backlog of podcasts. I have a question regarding daily activity. Like many these days, I work from home and am currently finishing my Bachelors Of Science in Health and Wellness (then plan to move on to the IHP courses!). I am 44 years old, had my last baby at 38 and have never been someone who has had trouble with my weight. I am a kapha body type, very curvy and gain weight evenly everywhere when I put weight on. I never lost the “baby weight” from having my last child and have put on about 15 extra since then. Completely due to a sedentary desk job at home, combined with being tethered to the computer after work to work on my degree. Needless to say, I have a very hard time getting my 10,000 steps as it seems there are simply just not enough hours in the day between work, school and commutes back and forth to pickup/ drop off of kids. Do you have any recommendations for how I can get my 10,000 steps in, if they're broken up in chunks are they still effective? I follow a 14/10 to 16/8 intermittent fasting schedule 7 days per week and since hearing your podcast, do not eat after 6pm on any given day. I am very careful of my caloric intake, keeping my total calories right about 1500. Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am a big fan and super enjoy your podcast. It has really sparked an interest in the field of natural medicine and health and I hope to be enrolled in your ihp program in the next year :) I have a question around napping. I have a newer job where I am up before 5:30 and working by 6:30. After 8-9 hours of working and being stimulated by tons of people and things to do I feel like I absolutely have to lay down. I take great naps between 20-30mins and feel refreshed, mind cleared and like I can continue on with my evening normally. I can get overwhelmed and stressed with work, take adrenal soothe daily (3-4 capsules) and was wondering if this is normal, and why I need extra sleep at 3pm after early and eventful workdays. I go to bed 9:30-10:30 every night, sleep well, and am a pitta-kapha body type and 27 years old if that adds anything. I have listened to your show on napping and wanted to hear any additional thoughts. Thank you!

8 Essentials For the Ultimate Fall Refresh

Today, I'm sharing my ultimate fall refresh essentials--everything you need to start the cozy season off right. Any change in the seasons and calendar is an opportunity to reset, reflect and refresh and get into the coziest, comfiest fall state of mind. Let me know what your autumn refresh routine looks like at @bribookspod on Instagram and Twitter, and by using #bribooks while you listen! 1:37 - #1: A notebook! Every autumn, I go to Paper Source and Barnes and Noble to scour the Leuchtturm1917 notebooks, which come in every hue under the sun. I love the bullet journaling approach (here's an episode of Bri Books about how to start bullet journaling!) I'm starting your fall reset with a notebook because you have to know where you want to go to get to where you want to be. Having a designated place to dump thoughts, plans and problems alleviate mental clutter. (Here's a link to my favorite Leuchturn1917 notebook.) 3:20 - #2: New tote bag! The CALPAK Haven laptop tote has taken the place of my everyday canvas bag. Inside the CALPAK tote is a removable laptop compartment. My favorite function? The slit in the back AKA the ‘luggage pass-through,' so you can slip through your carry-on luggage handle. This is the bag that'll define my fall ‘on-the-go' look. (Here's a link) 5:40 - #3: Bluetooth earbuds! The ones I've been using all summer and will use into winter are the Jaybird Vista 2 wireless sports earbuds. They're designed for athletes--think runners, rock-climbers--who need reliable earbuds with strong sound performance. They hold a charge for about 24 hours, and the case itself is a charging port. Here's a link to where to grab the Jaybird Vista 2 wireless sports earbuds, a definitive fall essential that you'll use year-round. 8:20 - #4: Kitchen essentials! Namely the Balmuda kettle and toaster. When the temperatures cool down, I get excited to make hot beverages around the clock and roast vegetables 24/7. In this respect, the Balmuda kettle and toaster have become a non-negotiable. All of their products are designed with a minimalist aesthetic to be beautiful and functional. From the kettle's painted stainless steel to the ergonomic handle, using the Balmuda kettle is a downright pleasure. You can use the toaster for roasting veggies, warming bread, baking cookies, steaming fish, warming up leftovers, roasting veggies--basically anything. If it's time for you to make an investment in your kitchen appliances as the cozy season creeps up, the Balmuda kettle and toaster deserve a spot on your list and kitchen counter. Here's a link to purchase the Balmuda kettle and toaster.  12:15 - #5: Tea and cider! Now is the perfect time to add tea and cider to your beverage collection. You can make apple cider slushies, cocktails, etc. at home to give a seasonal refresh to your beverage collection. My favorite autumnal teas are Traditional Medicinals and TeaPigs.  15:00 - #6: Handcream! Two hand creams I've been loving: Caudalie Nail and Hand Repair and Avya Nourishing Hand Treatment. I've been using Caudalie Nail Repair for five years now, and I buy a new tube each autumn. Rich in shea butter, avocado butter, polyphenols, the touch is so hydrating. If you prefer a rich hand cream that doesn't leave a greasy film, this is the one. Here's a link to purchase the Caudalie hand cream. Up next: the Avya Nourishing Hand Treatment. Avya nourishing hand treatment is rooted in ayurvedic medicine and has hyaluronic acid that helps hydrate and protects the dry chapped skin of your hands. The best part: the founder of Avya Skincare originally created the product as a face cream. Here's a link to where to pick up the Avya hand treatment. 17:23 - #7: Aromatherapy tools! When you think of autumn, certain scents come to mind: pumpkin, dried leaves, apples, rain, mulled cider. Take that exact same energy, bottle it up, and you have Aromatherapy Associates' atomizer diffuser. The atomizer is a waterless and portable diffuser, meaning you can carry it with you from room to room. Aromatherapy Associates is one of my favorite British brands, well-known in the wellness space for their innovative approach to aromatherapy.  The diffuser disperses a microfine mist directly from the essential oil bottle. And  since there is no water, it is easy to move around without the need to clean between uses. The ‘Deep Relax' essential oil blend and the ‘Breathe' pure essential oil blend are my absolute favorites for everyday use. Don't overlook the power of scent in creating a space that feels warm to you. Here's a link to where to purchase Aromatherapy Associates' atomizer.  20:30: #8: A staycation! This autumn, hop on the highway and get out of dodge. Choose an easy location (no more than 150 miles away) and treat yourself to a long weekend trip. One of my favorites is going to the Catskills in New York state, especially the town of Kingston, New York. I find that the autumnal bliss I crave can be found 100 miles outside of New York City. Stone Ridge Orchard, a fantastic local orchard, grows everything from apples to pears in the autumn, and the pumpkin patches are plentiful. I highly recommend a trip to Kingston Wine Company in downtown Kingston, and a lazy afternoon spent popping into and out of vintage shops blows away the end-of-summer blues. Wherever you are in the country, find the hidden gems of your region or hometown to remind you that magic is all around--and you don't have to pay thousands of dollars to be inspired and reinvigorated.   OTHER EPISODES MENTIONED AND PRODUCTS MENTIONED Bri Books: How to Get Started Bullet-Journaling Leuchtturm1917 notebooks CALPAK Haven laptop tote Jaybird Vista 2 wireless sports earbuds Balmuda kettle and toaster Traditional Medicinals and TeaPigs teas   Caudalie Nail and Hand Repair and Avya Nourishing Hand Treatment  Aromatherapy Associates' atomizer diffuser Staycation to the Catskills in New York state, especially the town of Kingston, New York

About Jesse Jesse Vincent is the cofounder and CTO of Keyboardio, where he designs and manufactures high-quality ergonomic mechanical keyboards. In previous lives, he served as the COO of VaccinateCA, volunteered as the project lead for the Perl programming language, created both the leading open source issue tracking system RT: Request tracker and K-9 Mail for Android.Links: Keyboardio: https://keyboard.io Obra: https://twitter.com/obra 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: You could build you go ahead and build your own coding and mapping notification system, but it takes time, and it sucks! Alternately, consider Courier, who is sponsoring this episode. They make it easy. You can call a single send API for all of your notifications and channels. You can control the complexity around routing, retries, and deliverability and simplify your notification sequences with automation rules. Visit courier.com today and get started for free. If you wind up talking to them, tell them I sent you and watch them wince—because everyone does when you bring up my name. Thats the glorious part of being me. Once again, you could build your own notification system but why on god's flat earth would you do that?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: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud. I'm Corey Quinn. As you folks are well aware by now, this show is at least ostensibly about the business of cloud. And that's intentionally overbroad. You can fly a boat through it, which means it's at least wider than the Suez Canal.And that's all well and good, but what do all of these cloud services have in common? That's right, we interact with them via typing on keyboards. My guest today is Jesse Vincent, who is the founder of Keyboardio and creator of the Model 01 heirloom-grade keyboard, which is sitting on my desk that sometimes I use, sometimes it haunts me. Jesse, thank you for joining me.Jesse: Hey, thanks so much for having me, Corey.Corey: So, mechanical keyboards are one of those divisive things that, back in the before times when we were all sitting in offices, it was an express form of passive aggression, where, “I don't like the people around me, and I'm going to show it to them with things that can't really complain about. So, what is the loudest keyboard I can get?” Style stuff. And some folks love them, some folks can't stand them. And most folks to be perfectly blunt, do not seem to care.Jesse: So, it's not actually about them being loud, or it doesn't have to be. Mechanical keyboards can be dead silent; they can be as quiet as anything else. There's absolutely a subculture that is into things that are as loud as they possibly can be; you know, sounds like there's a cannon going off on somebody's desk. But you can also get absolutely silent mechanical switches that are more dampened than your average keyboard. For many, many people, it's about comfort, it is about the key feel.A keyboard is supposed to have a certain feeling and these flat rectangles that feel like you're typing on glass, they don't have that feeling and they're not good for your fingers. And it's been fascinating over the past five or six years to watch this explosion in interest in good keyboards again.Corey: I learned to first use a computer back on an old IBM 286 in the '80s. And this obviously had a Model M—or damn close to it—style buckling spring keyboard. It was loud and I'm nostalgic about the whole thing. True story I've never told on this podcast before; I was a difficult child when I was five years old, and I was annoyed because my parents went out of the house and my brother was getting more attention than I was. I poured a bucket of water into the keyboard.And to this day, I'm surprised my father didn't murder me after that. And we wound up after having a completely sealing rubber gasket on top of this thing. Because this was the '80s; keyboards were not one of those, “Oh, I'm going to run down to the store and pick up another one for $20.” This was at least a $200 whoops-a-doozy. And let's just say that it didn't endear me to my parents that week.Jesse: That's funny because that keyboard is one that actually probably would have dried out just fine. Not like the Microsoft Naturals that I used to carry in the mid-'90s. Those white slightly curved ones. That was my introduction to ergonomic keyboards and they had a fatal flaw as many mid-'90s Microsoft products did. In this case, they melted in the rain; the circuit traces inside were literally wiped away by water. If a cup of water got in that keyboard, it was gone.Corey: Everyone has a story involving keyboard and liquids at some point, or they are the most careful people that are absolutely not my people whatsoever because everyone I hang out with is inherently careless. And over time I used other keyboards as I went through my life and never had strong opinions on them, and then I got to play with a mechanical keyboard had brought all that time rushing back to me of, “Oh, yeah.” And my immediate thought is, “Oh, this is great. I wonder if I could pour water into it? No, no.”And I started getting back into playing with them and got what I thought was the peak model keyboard from Das Keyboards which, there was the black keyboard with no writing on it at all. And I learned I don't type nearly as well as I thought I did in those days. And okay. That thing sat around gathering dust and I started getting a couple more and a couple more, and it turns out if you keep acquiring mechanical keyboards, you can turn an interest into a problem but you can also power your way through to the other side and become a collector. And I started building my own for a while and I still have at least a dozen of them in various states of assembly here.It was sort of a fun hobby that I got into, and for me at least it was, why do I want to build a keyboard myself? Is it, do I believe intrinsically that I can build a better keyboard than I can buy? Absolutely not. But everything else I do in my entire career as an engineer until that point had been about making the bytes on the screen go light up in different patterns. That was it.This was something that I had built that I could touch with my hands and was still related to the thing that I did, and was somewhat more forgiving than other things that I could have gotten into, like you know, woodworking with table saws that don't realize my arm it just lopped off.Jesse: Oh, you can burn yourself pretty good with a soldering iron.Corey: Oh, absolutely I can.Jesse: But yeah, no, I got into this in a similar-sounding story. I had bad wrists throughout my career. I was a programmer and a programming manager and CEO. And my wrist hurts all the time, and I'd been through pretty much every ergonomic keyboard out there. If you seen the one where you stick your fingers into little wells, and each finger you can press back forth, left, right, and down, the ones that looked like they were basically a pair of flat capacitive surfaces from a company that later got bought by Apple and turned into the iPads touch technology, Microsoft keyboards, everything. And nothing quite felt right.A cloud startup I had been working on cratered one summer. Long story short, the thing went under for kind of sad reasons and I swore I was going to take a year off to screw around and figure out what the next thing was going to be. And at some point, I noticed there were people on the internet building their own keyboards. This was not anything I had ever done before. When I started soldering, I did figure out that I must have soldered before because it smelled familiar, but this was supposed to be a one-month project to build myself a single keyboard.And I saw that people on the internet were doing it, I figured, eh, how hard could it be? Just one of those things that Perl hackers are apt to say. Little did I know. It's now, I want to say something like eight years later, and my one-month project to build one keyboard has failed thousands and thousands and thousands of times over as we've shipped thousands of keyboards to, oh God, it's like 75 or 78 countries.Corey: And it's great. It's well made. The Model 01 that I got was part of an early Kickstarter batch. My wife signed me up for it—because she knew I was into this sort of thing—as a birthday gift. And then roughly a year later, if memory serves, it showed up and that was fine.Again, it's Kickstarter is one of those, this might just be an aspirational gift. We don't know. And—because, Kickstarter—but it was fun. And I use it. It's great.I like a lot of the programmability aspects of it. There are challenges. I'm not used to using ergonomic keyboards, and the columnar layout is offset to a point where I miss things all the time. And if you're used to typing rapidly, in things like chats, or Twitter or whatnot, were rapid responses valuable, it's frustrating trying to learn how a new keyboard layout works.Jesse: Absolutely. So, we got some advice very early on from one of the research scientists who helped Microsoft with their design for their natural keyboards, and one of the things that he told us was, “You will probably only ever get one chance to make a keyboard; almost every company that makes a keyboard fails, and so you should take one of the sort of accepted designs and make a small improvement to help push the industry forward. You don't want to go do something radical and have nobody like it.”Corey: That's very reasonable advice and also boring. Why bother?Jesse: Well, we walked away from that with a very different take, which was, if we're only going to get one chance of this, we're going to do the thing we want to make.Corey: Yeah.Jesse: And so we did a bunch of stuff that we got told might be difficult to do or impossible. We designed our own keycaps from scratch. We milled the enclosure out of hardwood. When we started, we didn't know where we were manufacturing, but we did specify that the wood was going to be Canadian maple because it grows like a weed, and as you know, not in danger of being made extinct. But when you're manufacturing in southern China and you're manufacturing with Canadian maple, that comes on a boat from North America.Corey: There's something to be said for the globalization supply chain as we see things shipped back and forth and back and forth, and it seems ridiculous but the economics are there it's—Jesse: Oh, my God. Now, this year.Corey: Yeah [laugh], there's that.Jesse: Supply chains are… how obscenity-friendly is this podcast? [laugh].Corey: Oh, we can censor anything that's too far out. Knock yourself out.Jesse: Because what I would ordinarily say is the supply chains are [BLEEP].Corey: Yep, they are.Jesse: Yeah. This time around, we gave customers the—for the Model 100, which is our new keyboard that the Kickstarter just finished up for—we gave customers the choice of that nice Canadian maple or walnut. We got our quotes in advance. You know, our supplier confirmed wood was no problem a few months in advance. And then the night before the campaign launched, our wood supplier got in touch and said, “So, there are no walnut planks that are wide enough to be had in all of southern China. There are some supply chain issues due to the global container shortage. We don't know what we're going to be able to do. Maybe you could accept it if we did butcher block style walnut and glued planks together.”They made samples and then a week later, instead of FedExing us the samples, I got a set of photographs with a whole bunch of sad faces and crying face emojis saying, “Well, we tried. We know there's no way that this would be acceptable to your customers.” We asked, “So, where's this walnut supposed to be coming from that you can't get it?” They're like, “It's been sitting on the docks at the origin since March. It's being forested in Kentucky in the United States.”Corey: The thing that surprised me the most about the original model on Kickstarter campaign was how much went wrong across the board. I kept reading your updates. It was interesting, at some point, it was like, okay, this is clearly a Ponzi scheme. That's the name of the keyboard: ‘The Ponzi', where there's going to be increasingly outlandish excuses.Jesse: I don't think a Ponzi scheme would be the right aspersion to be casting.Corey: There's that more pedestrian scam-style thing. We could go with that.Jesse: We have a lot of friends who've been in industry longer than us, and every time we brought one of the problems that our factory seemed to be having to them, they said, “Oh, yeah, that's the thing that absolutely happens.”Corey: Yeah, it was just you kept hitting every single one of these, and I was increasingly angry on your behalf, reading these things about, “Oh, yeah. Just one of your factory reps just blatantly ripped you off, and this was expected to be normal in some cases, and it's like”—and you didn't even once threatened to burn the factory now, which I thought was impressive.Jesse: No, nobody threatened to burn the factory down, but one of the factories did have a fire.Corey: Which we can neither confirm nor deny—I kid, I kid, I kid.Jesse: Yeah, yeah, yeah. But so what our friends who had been in industry longer that said, it was like, “Jesse, but, you know, nobody has all the problems.” And eventually, we figured out what was going on, and it was that our factory's director of overseas sales was a con artist grifter who had been scamming both sides. She'd been lying to us and lying to the factory, and making up stories to make her the only trusted person to each side, and she'd just been embezzling huge sums of money.Corey: You hear these stories, but you never think it's going to be something that happens to you. Was this your first outing with manufacturing a physical product?Jesse: This was our first physical product.Corey: But I'm curious about it; are you effectively following the trope of a software person who thinks, “Ah, I could do hardware? How hard could it be? I could ship code around the world seconds, so hardware will be just a little bit slower.” How close to that trope are you?Jesse: So, when we went into the manufacturing side, we knew that we knew nothing, and we knew that it was fraught with peril. And we gave ourselves an awful lot of padding on timing, which we then blew through for all sorts of reasons. And we ran through a hardware incubator that helped us vet our plans, we were working with companies on the ground that helped startups work with factories. And honestly, if it hadn't been for this one individual, yes we would have had problems, but it wouldn't have been anything of the same scale. As far as we can tell, almost everything bad that happened had a grain of truth in it, it's just that… you know, a competent grifter can spin a tiny thing into a giant thing.And nobody in China suspected her, and nobody in China believed that this could possibly be happening because the penalties if she got caught were ten years in a Chinese prison for an amount of money that effectively would be a down payment on an apartment instead of the price of a full apartment or fully fleeing the country.Corey: It seems like that would be enough of a deterrent, but apparently not.Jesse: Apparently not. So, we ended up retaining counsel and talking to friends who had been working in southern China for 15 years for about who they might recommend for a lawyer. We ended up retaining a Chinese lawyer. Her name's [Una 00:13:36]; she's fantastic.Corey: Referrals available upon request.Jesse: Oh, yeah. No, absolutely. I'm happy to send her all kinds of business. She looked at the contract we had with the factory, she's like, “This is a Western contract. This isn't going to help you in the Chinese courts. What we need to do is we need to walk into the factory and negotiate a new agreement that is in Chinese, written by a Chinese lawyer, and get them to sign it.”And part of that agreement was getting them to take full joint responsibility for everything. And she walked in with me to the factory. She dressed down: t-shirt and jeans. They initially thought she was my translator, and she made a point of saying, “Look, I'm Jesse's counsel. I'm not your lawyer. I do not represent your interests.”And three-party negotiations with the factory: the factory's then former salesperson, and us. And she negotiated a new agreement. And I had a long list of all the things that we needed to have in our contract, like all the things that we really cared about. Get to the end of the day and she hands it to me and she's like, “What do you think?” And I read it through and my first thought is that none of the ten points that we need in this agreement are there.And then I realized that they are there, they're just very subtle. And everybody signs it. The factory takes full joint responsibility for everything that was done by their now former salesperson. We go outside; we get into the cab, and she turns to me—and she's not a native speaker of English, but she is fluent—and she's like, how do you think that went, Jesse? I'm like, I think that went pretty well. And she's like, “Yes. I get my job satisfaction out of adverse negotiation, and the factory effectively didn't believe in lawyers.”Corey: No, no. I've seen them. They exist. I married one of them.Jesse: Oh, yeah. As it turned out, they also didn't really believe in the court system and they didn't believe in not pissing off judges. Nothing could help us recover the time we lost; we did end up recovering all of our tooling, we ended up recovering all of our product that they were holding, all with the assistance of the Chinese courts. It was astonishing because we went into this whole thing knowing that there was no chance that a Chinese court would find for a small Western startup with no business presence in China against a local factory, and I think our goal was that they would get a black mark on their corporate social credit report so that nobody else would do business with this factory that won't give the customer back their tooling. And… it turns out that, no, the courts just helped us.Corey: It's nice when things work the way they're supposed to, on some level.Jesse: It is.Corey: And then you solve your production problems, you shipped it out. I use it, I take it out periodically.Jesse: We'd shipped every customer order well before this.Corey: Oh, okay. This was after you had already done the initial pre-orders. This was as you were ongoing—Jesse: Yeah, there were keycaps we owed people, which were—Corey: Oh, okay.Jesse: Effectively the free gift we promised aways in for being late on shipping.Corey: That's what that was for. It showed up one day and I wondered what the story behind that was. But yeah, it was—Jesse: Yeah.Corey: They're great.Jesse: Yeah. You know, and then there was a story in The Verge of, this Kickstarter alleges that—da, da, da, da, da. We're like, “I understand that AOL's lawyers make you say ‘alleges,' but no, this really happened, and also, we really had shipped everything that we owed to customers long before all this went down.”Corey: Yeah. This is something doesn't happen in the software world, generally speaking. I don't have to operate under the even remote possibility that my CI/CD system is lying to me about what it's doing. I can generally believe things that show up in computers—you would think—but there are—Jesse: You would think. I mean—Corey: There a lot of [unintelligible 00:17:19] exceptions to that, but generally, you can believe it.Jesse: In software, you sometimes we'll work with contractors or contract agencies who will make commitments and then not follow through on those commitments, or not deliver the thing they promised. It does sometimes happen.Corey: Indeed.Jesse: Yeah, no, the thing I miss the most from software is that if there is a defect, the cost of shipping an update is nil and the speed at which you can ship an update is instantly.Corey: You would think it would be nil, but then we look at AWS data transfer pricing and there's a giant screaming caveat on that. It's you think that moving bytes would cost nothing. Yeah.Jesse: [unintelligible 00:17:53] compared to international shipping costs for physical goods, AWS transfer rates are incredibly competitive.Corey: No, no, to get to that stage, you need to add an [unintelligible 00:18:02] NAT gateway with their data processing fee.Jesse: [laugh].Corey: But yeah, it's a different universe. It's a different problem, a different scale of speed, a different type of customer, too, on some levels. So, after you've gotten the Model 01's issues sorted out, you launched a second keyboard. The ‘a-TREE-us', if I'm pronouncing that correctly. Or ‘A-tree-us'.Jesse: So Phil, who designed it, pronounces is ‘A-tree-us', so we pronounce it A-tree-us. And so, this is a super minimalist keyboard designed to take with you everywhere, and it was something where Phil Hagelberg, who is a software developer of some repute for a bunch of things, he had designed this sort of initially for his own use and then had started selling kits. So, laser-cut plywood enclosures, hand-built circuit boards, you just stick a little development board in the middle of it, spend some time soldering, and you're good to go. And he and I were internet buddies; he had apparently gotten his start from some of my early blog posts. And one day, he sent me a note asking if I would review his updated circuit board design because he was doing a revision.I looked at his updated circuit board design and then offered to just make him a new circuit board design because it was going to be pretty straightforward to do something that's going to be a little more reliable and a lot more cost-effective. We did that and we talked a little more, and I said, “Would you be interested in having us just make this thing in a factory and sell it with a warranty and send you a royalty?” And he said, but it's GPL. You don't have to send me a royalty.Corey: I appreciate that I am not compelled to do it. However—yeah.Jesse: Yeah, exactly. It's like, “No. We would like to support people who create things and work with you on it.”Corey: That's important. We periodically have guest authors writing blog posts on Last Week in AWS. Every single one of them is paid for what they do, sometimes there for various reasons that they can't or won't accept it and we donate it to a charity of their choice, but we do not expect people to volunteer for a profit-bearing entity, in some respects.Jesse: Yeah.Corey: Now, open-source is a whole separate universe that I still maintain that is rapidly becoming a, “Would you like to volunteer for a trillion-dollar company in your weekend hours?” Usually not, but there's always an argument.Jesse: Oh, yeah. We have a bunch of open-source contributors to our open-source firmware and we contribute stuff back upstream to other projects, and it is a related but slightly different thing. So, Phil said yes; we said yes. And then we designed and made this thing. We launched an ultra-portable keyboard designed to take with you everywhere.It came with a travel case that had a belt loop, and basically a spring-loaded holster for your keyboard if you want to nerd out like that. All of the Kickstarter video and all the photography sort of showed how nice it looked in a cafe. And we launched it, like, the week the first lockdowns hit, in the spring of 2019.Corey: I have to say I skipped that one entirely. One of the things that I wound up doing—keyboard-wise—when I started this company four years ago and change, now was, I wound up getting a fairly large desk, and it's 72 inches or something like that. And I want a big keyboard with a numpad—yeah, that's right, big spender here—because I don't need a tiny little keyboard. I find that the layer-shifting on anything that's below a full-size keyboard is a little on the irritating side. And this goes beyond. It is—it requires significant—Jesse: Oh, yeah. It's—Corey: Rewiring of your brain, on some level.Jesse: And there are ergonomic reasons why some people find it to be better and more comfortable. There's less reaching and twisting. But it is a very different typing experience and it's absolutely not for everybody. Nothing we've made so far is intended to be a mass-market product. When we launched the Model 01, we were nervous that we would make something that was too popular because we knew that if we had to fulfill 50,000 of them, we'd just be screwed. We knew how little we knew.But the Atreus, when we launched it on Kickstarter, we didn't know if we were going to have to cancel the campaign because no one was going to want their travel keyboard at the beginning of a pandemic, but it did real well. I don't remember the exact timing and numbers, but we hit the campaign goal, I want to say early on the first day, possibly within minutes, possibly within hours—it's been a while now; I don't remember exactly—ultimately, we sold, like, 2600 of them on Kickstarter and have done additional production runs. We have a distributor in Japan, and a distributor in the US, and a distributor in the UK, now. And we also sell them ourselves directly online, from keyboard.io.So, this is one of the other fascinating logistics things, is that we ship globally through Hong Kong. Which, before the pandemic was actually pretty pleasant. Inexpensive shipping globally has gotten kind of nuts because most discount carriers, the way they operated historically is, they would buy cargo space on commercial flights. Commercial international flights don't happen so much.Corey: Yes, suddenly, that becomes a harder thing to find.Jesse: Early on, we had a couple of shipping providers that were in the super-slow, maybe up to two weeks to get your thing somewhere by air taking, I want to say we had things that didn't get there for three months. They would get from Hong Kong to Singapore in three days; they would enter a warehouse, and then we had to start asking questions about, “Hey, it's been eight weeks. What's going on?” And they're like, “Oh, it's still in queue for a flight to Europe. There just aren't any.”Corey: It seems like that becomes a hard problem.Jesse: It becomes a hard problem. It started to get a little better, and now it's starting to get a little worse again. Carriers that used to be ultra-reliable are now sketchy. We have FedEx losing packages, which is just nuts. USPS shipments, we see things that are transiting from Hong Kong, landing at O'Hare, going through a sorting center in Chicago, and just vanishing for weeks at a time, in Chicago.Corey: I don't pretend to understand how this stuff works. It's magic to me; like, it is magic, on some level, that I can order toilet paper on the internet, it gets delivered to my house for less money than it costs me to go to the store and buy it. It feels like there's some serious negative externalities in there. But we don't want to look too closely at those because we might feel bad about things.Jesse: There's all kinds of fascinating stuff for us. So, shipping stuff, especially by air, there are two different ways that the shipping weight can get calculated. It can either get calculated based on the weight on a scale, or it can get calculated using a formula based on the dimensions. And so bulky things are treated as weighing an awful lot. I'm told that Amazon's logistics teams started doing this fascinating thing where ultra-dense, super-heavy shipments they pushed on to FedEx and UPS, whereas the ultra-light stuff that saved on jet fuel, they shoved onto their own planes.Corey: 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 want to follow up because it seems like, okay, pandemic shipping is a challenge; you clearly are doing well. You still have them in stock and are selling them as best I'm aware, correct?Jesse: Yes.Corey: Yeah. I may have to pick one up one of these days just so I can put it on the curiosity keyboard shelf and kick it around and see how it works. And then you recently concluded a third keyboard Kickstarter, in this case. And—Jesse: Yeah.Corey: —this is not your positioning; this is my positioning of what I'm picking up of, “Hey, remember that Model 01 keyboard we sold you that you love and we talked about and it's amazing? Yeah, turns out that's crap. Here's the better version of it.” Correct that misapprehension, please. [laugh].Jesse: Sure. So, it absolutely is not crap, but we've been out of stock in the Model 01 for a couple of years now. And we see them going used for as much or sometimes more than we used to charge for them new. It went out of stock because of the shenanigans with that first factory. And shortly before we launched the Atreus, we'd been planning to bring back an updated version of the Model 01; we've even gotten to the point of, like, designing the circuit boards and starting to update the tooling, the injection molding tooling, and then COVID, Atreus, life, everything.And so it took us a little longer to get there. But there is a larger total addressable market for a keyboard like the Model 01 than the total number that we ever sold. There are certainly people who had Model 01s who want replacements, want extras, want another one on another desk. There are also plenty of people who wanted a Model 01 and never got one.Corey: Here's my question for you, with all three of these keyboards because they're a different layout, let's be clear. Some more so than others, but even the columnar layout is strange here. Once upon a time, I had a week in which I wasn't doing much, and I figured, ah, I'll Dvorak—which is a different keyboard layout—and it's not that it's hard; it's that it's rewiring a whole bunch of muscle memory. The problem I ran into was not that it was impossible to do, by any stretch, but because of what I was doing—in those days help desk and IT support—I was having to do things on other people's computers, so it was a constant context switching back and forth between different layouts.Jesse: Yeah.Corey: Do you see that being a challenge with layouts like this, or is it more natural than that?Jesse: So, what we found is that it is easier to switch between an ergonomic layout and a traditional layout, like a columnar layout, and what's often called a row-stagger layout—which is what your normal keyboard looks like—than it is to switch between Dvorak and Qwerty on a traditional keyboard. Or the absolute bane of my existence is switching between a ThinkPad and a MacBook. They are super close; they are not the same.Corey: Right. You can't get an ergonomic keyboard layout inside of a laptop. I mean, looking at the four years of being gaslit by Apple, it's clear you can barely get a keyboard into a MacBook for a while. It's, “Oh, it's a piece of crap, but you're using it wro”—yeah. I'm not a fan of their entire approach to keyboards and care very than what Apple has to say about anything even slightly keyboard-related, but that's just me being bitter.Jesse: As far as I can tell, large chunks of Apple's engineering organization felt the same way that you did. Their new ones are actually decent again.Corey: Yes, that's what I've heard. And I will get one at some point, but I also have a problem where, “Oh, yeah, you know that $3,000 laptop with a crappy keyboard, you can't use for anything? Great. The solution is to give us 3000 more dollars, and then we'll sell you one that's good.” And it's, I feel like I don't want to reward the behavior.Jesse: I hear you. I ditched Mac OS for a number of years. I live the dream: Linux on the desktop. And it didn't hurt me a lot—printing worked fine, scanning worked fine, projectors were fine—but when I was reaching for things like Photoshop, and Lightroom, and my mechanical CAD software, it was the bad kind of funny.Corey: I have to be careful, now for the first time in my life I'm not updating to new operating systems early on, just because of things like the audio stuff I have plugged into my nonsense and the media nonsense that I do. It used to be that great, my computer only really needs to be a web browser and a terminal and I'm good. And worst case, I can make do with just the web browser because there are embedded a terminal into a web page options out there. Yeah, now it turns out that actually have a production workflow. Who knew?Jesse: Yep. That's the point where I started thinking about having separate machines for different things. [laugh].Corey: Yeah, I'm rapidly hitting that point. Yeah, I do want to get into having fun with keyboards, on some level, but it's the constant changing of what you're using. And then, of course, there's the other side of it where, in normal years, I spent an awful lot of time traveling and as much fun as having a holster-mounted belt keyboard would be, in many cases, it does not align with the meetings that I tend to be in.Jesse: Of course.Corey: It's, “Oh, great. You're the CFO of a Fortune 500. Great, let me pair my mini keyboard that looks like something from the bowels of your engineering department's reject pile.” Like, what is this? It's one of those things that doesn't send the right message in some cases. And let's be honest; I'm good at losing things.Jesse: This is a pretty mini keyboard, but I hear you.Corey: Or I could lose it, along with my keys. It will be great.Jesse: Yeah. There are a bunch of things I've wanted to do around reasonable keyboards for tablets.Corey: Yes, please do.Jesse: Yeah. We actually started looking at one point at a fruit company in Cupertino's requirements around being able to do dock-connector connected keyboards for their tablets, and… it's nuts. You can't actually do ergonomic keyboards that way, it would have to be Bluetooth.Corey: Yeah. When I travel on the road these days, or at least—well, ‘these days' being two years ago—the only computer I'd take is an iPad. And that was great; it works super well for a lot of my use cases. There's still something there, and even going forward, I'm going to be spending a lot more time at home. I have young kids now, and I want to be here to watch them grow up.And my lifestyle and use cases have changed for the last year and a half. I've had an iMac. I've never had one of those before. It's big screen real estate; things are great. And I'm looking to see whether it's time to make a full-on keyboard evolution if I can just force myself over the learning curve, here. But here's the question you might not be prepared to answer yet. What's next? Do you have plans on the backburner for additional keyboards beyond what you've done?Jesse: Oh, yeah. We have, like, three more designs that are effectively in the can. Not quite ready for production, but if this were a video podcast, I'd be pulling out and waving circuit boards at you. One of the things that we've been playing with is what is called in the trade a symmetric staggered keyboard where the right half is absolutely bog-standard normal layout like you'd expect, and the left side is a mirror of that. And so it is a much more gentle introduction to an ergonomic-style keyboard.Corey: Okay, I can almost wrap my head around that.Jesse: Because if you put your hands on your keyboard and you feel the angles that you have to move on your right side, you'll see that your fingers move basically straight back and forth. On the left side, it's very different unless you're holding your hand at a crazy, crazy angle.Corey: Yeah.Jesse: And so it's basically giving you that same comfort on the right side and also making the left side comfy. It's not a weird butterfly-shaped keyboard; it is still a rectangle, but it is just that little bit better. We're not the first people who have done this. Our first prototype of this thing was, like, 2006, something like that. But it was a one-off, like, “I wonder if I would like this.” And we were actually planning to do that one next after the Model 01 when the Atreus popped up, and that was a much faster, simpler, straighter-forward thing to bring to production.Corey: The one thing I want from a keyboard—and I haven't found one yet; maybe it exists, maybe I have to build it myself—but I want to do the standard mechanical keyboard—I don't even particularly care about the layout because it all passes through a microcontroller on the device itself. Great. And those things are programmable as you've demonstrated; you've already done an awful lot of open-source work that winds up being easily used to control keyboards. And I love it, and it's great, but I also want to embed a speaker—a small one—into the keyboard so I can configure it that every time I press a key, it doesn't just make a clack, it also makes a noise. And I want to be able to—ideally—have it be different keys make different noises sometimes. And the reason being is that when we eventually go back to offices, I don't want there to be any question about who is the most obnoxious typist in the office; I will—Jesse: [laugh].Corey: —win that competition. That is what I want from a keyboard. It's called the I-Don't-Want-Anyone-Within-Fifty-Feet-Of-Me keyboard. And I don't quite know how to go about building that yet, but I have some ideas.Jesse: So, there's absolutely stuff out there. There is prior art out there.Corey: Oh, wonderful.Jesse: One of the other options for you is solenoids.Corey: Oh, those are fun.Jesse: So, a solenoid is—there is a steel bar, an electromagnet, and a tube of magnetic material so that you can go kachunk every time you press a key.Corey: It feels functionally like a typewriter to my understanding.Jesse: I mean, it can make it feel like a typewriter. The haptic engine in an iPhone or a Magic Trackpad is not exactly a solenoid but might give you the vaguest idea of what you're talking about.Corey: Yeah, I don't think I'm going to be able to quite afford 104 iPhones to salvage all of their haptic engines so that I can then wind up hooking each one up to a different key but, you know, I am sure someone enterprising come up with it.Jesse: Yeah. So, you only need a couple of solenoids and you trigger them slightly differently depending on which key is getting hit, and you'll get your kachunk-kachunk-kachunk-kachunk-kachunk.Corey: Yeah, like spacebar for example. Great. Or you can always play a game with it, too, like, the mystery key: whenever someone types in the hits the mystery key, the thing shrieks its head off and scares the heck out of them. Especially if you set it to keys that aren't commonly used, but ever so frequently, make everyone in the office jumpy and nervous.Jesse: This will be perfect for Zoom.Corey: Oh, absolutely, it would. In fact, one thing I want to do soon if this pandemic continues much longer, is then to upgrade my audio setup here so I can have a second microphone pointed directly into my keyboard so that people who are listening at a meeting with me can hear me typing as we go. I might be a terrible colleague. One wonders.Jesse: You might be a terrible colleague, but you might be a wonderful colleague. Who knows?Corey: It all depends on the interests we have. I want to thank you for taking the time to walk me through the evolution of Keyboardio. If people want to learn more, or even perhaps buy one of these things, where can they do that?Jesse: They can do that at keyboard.io.Corey: And hence the name. Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me about all this. I really appreciate it.Jesse: Cool. Thanks so much for having me. I had fun.Corey: I did, too.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Wednesday 22nd September. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. Welcome to a new member of the Patreon family, and a new EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JACOB KUEHNE Todays is world car free day - so will you be riding your e-bike or e-scooter today? COLORADO EV INCENTIVES "Excel Energy's new roster of electric vehicle rebates are winning praise from environmental groups, with Colorado's dominant utility expanding incentives to include used vehicles, speeding up the all-important charging network and working with landlords to install apartment chargers." "Xcel will credit $50 a year on your bill if you agree to do most of your charging during off-peak times they have set aside. They say this allows them to plan demands on the power grid, and also allows you to use more renewable energy in the evening, instead of peak power that may be drawing on coal-fired power plants. If you need to charge at home outside your chosen time, you can override the system." “Used was a big win for us,” said Xcel electric vehicle program director Alisa Sobczak, who was showcasing Xcel's new incentives at a vehicle and charging station showcase set up for last weekend's Denver Auto Show.  “For instance, in the Denver Metro area, a family of four with household income under $85,000 qualifies,” for the rebates, Sobczak said. “We tried to make as many people eligible as possible, because we want everybody to have the opportunity to drive electric. So we've got $5,500 off a new EV purchase or lease, and $3,000 off of used." "The Xcel-offered rebates for new or used EV purchases and leases are income-qualified on a sliding scale, to target the greatest amount of help to those with the least resources for a big purchase. The price tag for the car can't go over $50,000, eliminating many models of Tesla or the high-end pickup trucks arriving this year." https://coloradosun.com/2021/09/21/new-xcel-electric-vehicle-charging-rebates CONSUMER REPORTS HATE TESLA'S YOKE "Testers at Consumer Reports recently got their hands on the Tesla Model S steering yoke, and first impressions aren't good. The publication, which purchases all of its test vehicles, recently received a new Model S equipped with the yoke which, in addition to its unusual shape, replaces conventional controls for the turn signals, windshield wipers, and horn with touch-sensitive buttons." writes Green Car Reports: "Over the course of a week, ten Consumer Reports testers reported numerous issues with the yolk. It slipped out of drivers' hands, doesn't allow for hand-over-hand shuffling when maneuvering in tight spaces, and drivers had trouble figuring out which button to press to activate the turn signals." Jake Fisher, senior director of Consumer Reports' Auto Test Center: "Swerving to avoid road debris or a stopped vehicle may be more difficult. I am concerned if I would be able to control the vehicle well in an emergency situation." https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1133605_tesla-model-s-steering-yoke-is-a-pain-and-possible-safety-concern-says-consumer-reports 2022 BMW I3: ELECTRIC 3 SERIES SPIED "The 2022 BMW i3 has been caught by an amateur photographer in China. Images have been posted to website Sohu showing the first fully-electric 3 Series, with the new BMW expected to slot in below the i4 – but believed to instead share a similar powertrain to the iX3 SUV." says Whichcar.com.au: "Rumours suggest the new model will offer an entry-level variant initially – possibly called the i3 eDrive30 – with a single electric motor sending 210kW and 400Nm to the rear wheels. it's more likely the i3 shares the larger 84kWh battery pack with its i4 sibling, meaning the sedan should easily reach 600km of driving range on a single charge" https://www.whichcar.com.au/news/2022-bmw-i3-electric-3-series-spied ELECTRAMECCANICA TO BEGIN CUSTOMER DELIVERIES "ElectraMeccanica Vehicles will begin customer deliveries of its single-occupant, three-wheeled, electric vehicle, the SOLO.  The company will officially begin delivering keys to customers at a special launch event scheduled for 4 October in Los Angeles with a select group of early reservation holders along with the company's first fleet owners." reports Green Car Congress: "The SOLO is a purpose-built, three-wheeled, all-electric solution for the urban environment. Engineered for a single occupant.  The SOLO features front and rear crumple zones, side impact protection, roll bar, torque-limiting control, as well as power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and a Bluetooth entertainment system. It blends a modern look with safety features at an accessible price point of $18,500." https://www.greencarcongress.com/2021/09/electrameccanica-to-begin-customer-deliveries-of-three-wheeled-solo-ev.html DRIIVZ AND HUBJECT FOCUS ON PLUG & CHARGE Driivz, the leading end-to-end EV charging and smart energy management software platform, today announced a cooperation with Hubject, the world's largest eRoaming provider, to deliver a seamless Plug & Charge EV experience based on ISO 15118. The impetus for this collaboration came from Mer, a leading European EV charging company providing innovative and sustainable solutions, who recently chose Driivz to power its global EV charging infrastructure and will be the first to benefit from this collaboration. Hubject will serve as the Certificate Authority, providing private/public key pairs to secure and validate the digital communication underlying the instant authorization, payment and charging transaction. https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2021/09/21/2300235/0/en/Driivz-and-Hubject-Join-Forces-to-Deliver-Seamless-Plug-Charge-EV-Experience.html 5-SEAT TESLA MODEL Y APPROVED FOR AUSTRALIA "Tesla's Model Y is now approved as per the Road Vehicle Type Approvals. This is one step closer to the all-electric SUV hitting the roads in Australia. With SUVs representing the largest vehicle category for new car sales, the Model Y is expected to easily outsell the sedan equivalent (Model 3) that has proven to be Australia's favourite EV." says TechAU: "By way of battery capacity, the data is provided in Ah for each models. To get to the size of the pack we need to multiply this by the voltage." Model Y battery pack has a nominal voltage of around 350v.  Standard Range: 173Ah x 350 = 60.5kWh Long Range & Perf: 230Ah x 350 = 80.5kWh https://techau.com.au/tesla-model-y-approved-for-australia-sr-lr-and-perf-all-confirmed-with-5-seats/ TESLA EXPANDS VIRTUAL POWER PLANT "Tesla announced today that it is expanding its biggest virtual power plant in Australia to Victoria through its new “Tesla Energy Plan.”" says electrek: "Earlier this year, the company expanded the program by launching what it calls the “Tesla Energy Plan on the Tesla Virtual Power Plant,” which is basically a time of use energy plan specifically made for Powerwall owners in South Australia. Today, Tesla announced that it is expanding its Tesla Energy Plan and Tesla Virtual Power Plant to Victoria" Tesla: "Tesla's Virtual Power Plant allows you to maximise your energy savings through flexible Time of Use rates. The unique smarts of Tesla's world leading technology will monitor and manage your Powerwall, assessing usage patterns to help ensure your home is powered by the most efficient source. Reducing your energy bill and benefiting your community at the same time.” https://electrek.co/2021/09/21/tesla-expansion-biggest-virtual-power-plant-australia TESLA TO REVERSE SOLAR PRICE HIKE  "Tesla is trying to placate some solar customers who say they faced sudden price hikes earlier this year, according to new filings with the U.S. district court in San Jose, California. In a Thursday filing, customers' attorneys wrote, “Tesla informed counsel for Plaintiffs that Tesla had recently launched a program for customers who signed Solar Roof contracts before the April 2021 price changes to return those customers to their original pricing (if they were subject to a price increase in April 2021).”" writes CNBC.com: "Filings in three separate lawsuits alleged that Tesla solar customers had already signed contracts with Elon Musk's electric vehicle and renewable energy venture, and even prepared to have solar photovoltaics installed at their homes, when they were surprised by sudden price hikes that required additional payments to move ahead with their installations. The price hikes were not trivial. For example, plaintiff Matthew Amans' solar roof price shot up from around $72,000 per his original contract to around $146,000," https://www.cnbc.com/2021/09/17/tesla-to-reverse-solar-price-hike-for-some-customers-legal-filing.html LARGE TAXI COMPANY GOES ELECTRIC "Today, we're announcing that our passenger car fleet will become fully electric by 2023, two years ahead of any other large PHV operator in London, and an investment of £160 million We begin that journey with a partnership with Volkswagen and the roll out of their ID.4s" say Addison Lee on a blog post: "– This will eventually mean 20 000 zero emissions journeys each day in London. In fact, our journey towards becoming fully electric has already started – following our purchase of leading black taxi platform ComCab earlier this year, we already have over 650 zero-emission taxis on our fleet. As well as helping the capital's environment, we know our new electric fleet and fund will be popular with drivers and business customers. In a recent survey 86% of drivers said they would be keen to shift to an electric vehicle this year and 82% of drivers considered improving the environment as the most significant benefit of shifting to EV.
