If you do not feel that your team is performing at the absolute optimum, or you are struggling to build an effective team, this episode is very much for you. Having the right people in place and equipping them to perform at their absolute best is key to running a highly successful business. Jeannette explains what characteristics high-performing teams have. As well as the small signs that could signify that your team needs tweaking. Then, provides you with a 12-step process you can use to make this happen. KEY TAKEAWAYS It is not uncommon for business owners to think they have a high-performing team only to discover when they look at things in-depth, that it is actually failing in some ways. Be self-aware as a leader and honest about where you are. Having a clear vision that everyone buys into is essential. Automation and effective processes equip your team for success. You only need one person not to be a team player to hold everyone back. The principles for running a small team are the same as they are for running a large one. Use the nine-box matrix to identify rising stars and those that need help. Review your culture and get feedback. You can´t have high performance if you don´t try new things. Quarterly reviews enable you to see where you are, tweak and improve. BEST MOMENTS ‘Our people are the most important aspect of our business. They are its lifeblood. ´ ‘The relationship between your team members has to be absolutely watertight, open, honest and respectful.' ‘Is your team working in an environment that stimulates creativity, energy, passion, and drive?' ‘Have a mission up on the wall. It should be on the back of the loo door.' This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

THE THESIS: This school will do more to help young people than anyone in the White House will ever think of doing. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES:  Proverbs 22:9 9 The generous will themselves be blessed,     for they share their food with the poor. Ephesians 4:28 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” Luke 12:47-49 47 “The servant who knows the master's will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

Along with Greg Koukle, Alistair Begg and Frank , I know you have Jesus as #1 in your life and I love listening to you!  I just listened to your Father's Day podcast and got tears in my eyes when you were talking about spending the night in the hospital with your daughter! My wife, who passed away about seven years ago, when she was in the hospital and when I would not spend the night with her but with our little boy at home, her dad would spend the night in my place and at the time I thought that was a little weird. But after hearing what you said and having 4 young kids myself, I completely understand! It doesn't matter how old your children are, or what they have done, they will always have a place in our heart! God bless you again Todd and keep fighting the good fight! You and others with you are in my prayers Tim ---   ---   --- Good Morning Todd, I wanted to say thank you and keep on keeping on. I appreciate your faithfulness to God's word. And regarding the rock ballad experiment, I enjoyed that as well. Near as I can tell we both share many similar experiences and God touches the lives of those who actively seek him in very profound ways. And sometimes in music and drugs, and crime, and all sorts of not so fuzzy bunny ways. At any rate, I wondered if you like the band Styx, I always related deeply to their song Man In The Wilderness, and then one I discovered Show Me The Way. I dropped the YouTube link for you to check it out if you've not heard it before. Enjoy brother. Keep the faith first and foremost. Never waver. Question everything, especially yourself.

Welcome to Skip the Queue. Thanks for coming on.Dominic Jones: Thanks for having me. I'm looking forward to it, I think.Kelly Molson: You are looking forward to it. You don't need to think about it. Can we just point out, I know, listeners, you can't see this, but if you're watching this on YouTube, can we just see, you've got a lovely little, "I love Skip the Queue" graphic in the background there. Look at that.Dominic Jones: Yeah, I think it's important to get across that I do love Skip the Queue and it's important to get that across before the icebreaker questions, I think, just in case you had a couple and you were thinking, "Oh, I'm going to be a bit tough." And then, so I did that and I tweeted this morning how excited I am about your forthcoming website attraction questionnaire, so that's a double. That's a double positive, right?Kelly Molson: Thank you. Thank you. Don't worry, listeners. I've got a special little recording so you understand what we're talking about that will be coming out in the next week or so, so you'll find out more about that soon.Dominic Jones: And I bought you a rubber for your rubber collection. Can you see that? Mary Rose rubber?Kelly Molson: Wow. Look at that.Dominic Jones: You may or may not get that depending on how the icebreakers go, so that's my third attempt.Kelly Molson: Gosh, I've never been bribed for a good icebreaker question.Dominic Jones: It's not bribery. It's a nice gift. It's a nice gift.Kelly Molson: Right, well, let's get cracking on the icebreaker questions, shall we? I think I've been quite kind to you. Tell us something that you are really great at cooking.Dominic Jones: I really like cooking. I actually find cooking really relaxing, so on a Friday or Saturday, I often cook at home, so it depends, really. I quite like making my own recipes, so just using what we've got in the house. So for example, scallops with chorizo, or if you're doing a steak, might do it with some sort of watercress and various cheese, or just sort of experimenting. I really like sort of seeing what we've got, putting it together and making it work. I think it's important, when you're cooking, to drink some wine as well.Kelly Molson: Oh, I agree.Dominic Jones: So cooking with wine is something I enjoy doing.Kelly Molson: We can be friends, Dominic.Dominic Jones: There we go.Kelly Molson: Absolutely, we can be friends. Also, really great choices of food there. I would definitely eat both of those. You'd be really good on Ready Steady Cook, then. That would've been your show.Dominic Jones: Yeah. Do you know what? I used to... So I once applied for a game show, which I didn't get on, I was very disappointed, but Ready Steady Cook was one I think I could have done. Because it's not hard, is it? Most things go with things, and it's also about having the confidence to carry it off and knowing... The only time it went wrong was I wanted to cook for my girlfriend, who's now my wife, a lemon pasta dish and it tasted awful and it had lemon rind in it and stuff, so... But apart from that, it's always worked out.Kelly Molson: Well, I mean, you must have done all right. She married you.Dominic Jones: Yeah.Kelly Molson: She married you in the end.Dominic Jones: True.Kelly Molson: All right. Well, our next one, I've gone topical for this. If you were the captain of a pirate ship...Dominic Jones: Yeah?Kelly Molson: What would be the name of your ship?Dominic Jones: That's a good one. Oh. I do like pirates. I think, because I'm Welsh and because I'd want to be a pirate who... A bit like sort of the Warrior in the Dockyard, which isn't a pirate ship, by the way, but when it came in, people normally surrendered, I want to be a scary pirate that people would think, "Oh, don't..." Maybe, like, Smoking Dragon or something like that. And then we'd light smoke as we came in so people are like, "Oh, here's the Smoking Dragon."Kelly Molson: Yeah, I like that. And there'd be a big dragon's head on the front with flame and smoke coming out of it.Dominic Jones: And people... Because a lot of pirates were Welsh. I don't know whether you know this, but a lot of pirates were Welsh.Kelly Molson: I didn't know that.Dominic Jones: Yeah, it's massive.Kelly Molson: Wow.Dominic Jones: Massive.Kelly Molson: Okay. All right. This is great. That's an excellent answer.Dominic Jones: I have to say, these are slightly biased questions because I was listening to a few of your podcasts recently and, like, you had someone from the zoo, "Oh, what's your favourite animal?" Or you had someone from IAAPA, "What's your favourite ride?" And I'm getting a "name a pirate ship"? Know what I mean?Kelly Molson: All right, what's your favourite boat?Dominic Jones: No, only joking. I'm not going to answer that. I'm not going to answer that.Kelly Molson: All right, but what is your favourite smell? That's my last question.Dominic Jones: Genuinely, we're looking at smell now for the museum, because smell is so important, it's something that can make a difference. When I was at Madame Tussauds Amsterdam, we used smell, as well, as part of the experience, because it just creates that emotive moment. I do like cookie dough and cookies and the smell of that sort of baking which you get pumped in in Disney parks. I quite like the smell of red wine.Kelly Molson: Yeah. Yep.Dominic Jones: Yeah, so I think it's food or drink smells I like, but yeah. Good question.Kelly Molson: Good answer. We are at Unpopular Opinion Point. What have you got to share with us?Dominic Jones: This is a hard one because I've decided to go work on this and I did have some really cool ones about lager and N-Dubz and stuff, but I decided to go with work because one of the things that through my whole career, anyone who knows me will know is I get really frustrated when people blame the weather, so I think you shouldn't blame the weather for anything because what happens is when someone blames the weather, when the weather's... So I've worked in theme parks and in museums and aquariums, indoor and outdoor attractions, and you probably know that when it's bad weather, it's great for indoor attractions, when it's good weather, it's good for the theme parks, right?Dominic Jones: So you get people that, when it's good weather in theme parks or bad weather in museums, they say, "Oh, our marketing and our everything we're doing is brilliant because the visitors are coming." And as soon as it's the bad weather or the good weather, depending on what you are, then it's all about the weather. So, "Our visitors are down because the weather was good." If you're in an indoor attraction and it really, really irritates me, and it's one of those things, they're mutually exclusive, you can only blame the weather if you give the weather credit when it's good, and it's one of those things, if things are good, I always think you should look outside the window and think, "Right, what's the reason for that?" And then if things are bad, you should look inside your organisation. It's one of my pet hates, but probably doesn't work for the podcast, so I should probably go with the lager or N-Dubz one, but anyway, there we go. But it is important, right? I think it's a good one.Kelly Molson: It is important. No, I think, yeah, that is important. It's really interesting. I've never really thought about that before. We need to give the weather more credit.Dominic Jones: Well, you need to give the weather credit if you're going to use it to blame. For me, it's a constant. It's something... And these days, weather forecasts are 10, 14 days out, so you should be able to plan.Kelly Molson: Yeah. Okay. Good. All right.Dominic Jones: I'll get off my high horse now. Yeah.Kelly Molson: Listeners, let us know how you feel, so let us know if you want to know about that N-Dubz one as well. I'm intrigued. Right, Dominic, I want you to tell us about your background because we met up recently, didn't we, at the M+H exhibition? And you were very humble about coming on the podcast and you said, "Oh, I'm not going to have anything... You've had really interesting people on and I'm not that interesting." You are really interesting and you've had such an incredible background. Tell us a little bit about it and how you got to where you are now.Dominic Jones: Well, I'm not sure about that. I do like listening to your podcast and you have some amazing guests and 9 times out of 10, I normally think, after listening to them, "Right, I'm going to either do something that they've suggested." Or I follow them on LinkedIn or Twitter and think, "Right, let's learn from them." Because I think you should always learn from other people, but so my career is a lot of luck, a lot of opportunity and a lot of chats.Dominic Jones: When I was growing up, I wanted to be a leisure centre manager. You know? Like you probably won't remember The Brittas Empire, but that was my dream. That was my dream, much to my mum's disappointment. And so that was all I ever wanted, so I went to college and did a leisure studies course, a HND, and there was a placement in PGL Adventure, which is like an adventure park, and I was a Multi Activity Instructor. Absolutely loved it.Dominic Jones: But then I sort of realised, actually, there's a whole world out there and decided I wanted to work in theme parks, so I applied to work at Disney and didn't get it the first time. I was very cocky, I was the wrong sort of person for Disney, but I went back three times and eventually got it and I did a placement in Disney and it was the best thing I ever did and it changed my life. It's one of the few jobs that I've left and thought, "My life will never be the same again." So good. So I did that and I got my master's degree. I didn't get the doctorate because I went on spring break, but hey, I was young...Kelly Molson: Well, spring break, though.Dominic Jones: Exactly. I was young. And then sort of went to Thorpe Park and was a Ride Operator. I remember my friends and some of their family were saying, "That's a real waste of..." Because I went to, in between Disney, went to university in Swansea, and they said, "It's a real waste of university, operating a teacup for £3.50 an hour." Or whatever it was at the time. But I loved it and for me, it was... I thought, "If you want to become a manager or you want to become, eventually, a General Manager or a Director of a theme park, it's really important to know how these things work."Dominic Jones: So I loved it, and just in case you ever get to operate the teacups, it's not too complicated, there's a red and green button, the red is to stop and the green is to start. I mean, it was five hours of training, but I finally mastered it and you can't actually make it go faster, so when you're there on the microphone and say, "Do you want to go faster?" You can't, it goes faster anyway, but I loved it and then very quickly rose through the ranks, so I became a Ride Supervisor, Team Leader, Area Team Leader, Coordinator, went to Chessington, worked there just at the time when Tussauds had bought Thorpe Park, so it was a real great time for career opportunities.Dominic Jones: Then I went to Madame Tussauds, was the Customer Service Manager there and helped create the first contact centre, if you like, call centre, where we sold tickets for things like Rock Circus, which is no longer in existence, but Rock Circus, the London Eye, Madam Tussauds, the Planetarium and that became the Merlin Contact Centre in the future, and then I started applying for loads of jobs, more General Manager jobs, and didn't get them and realised that I needed to get some marketing and sales experience.Dominic Jones: So I left and went to work for Virgin and then I was there for nearly 10 years and absolutely loved it and instead of getting the sales and marketing, well, I got the sales experience, I ended up becoming Vice President of Europe, the Middle East and Africa for the logistics side of the business, and then also, so we opened up Kenya, had some amazing life experiences, we saw the whole world and then was Regional Vice President Sales in Hong Kong for Asia Pacific, so great time.Dominic Jones: And then my wife became pregnant, obviously, I was involved in that, and it made me realise that I probably couldn't do a job where I was traveling 24/7. I mean, for a while, I did literally consider, which makes me sound like a bad person, "I could call in from Skype and things like that." And my wife was like, "Come on." So we went back to Wales and it was really hard to find a job that would allow me to be at home and be around so I actually thought, "Well, originally, when I went to Virgin, I wanted to have marketing experience."Dominic Jones: So I actually went to Thorpe Park and the marketing team and looked after the partnerships and promotions, did some really cool things, the Ministry of Sound nightclub deal was there, did some stuff with Lionsgate. A really good time doing the "buy one, get one free" things, the partnerships and events, got some good bands together on the stage that hadn't been on stage with the Wideboys and the [inaudible 00:11:55] boys if you know your dance music, it was massive.Dominic Jones: Anyway, so I did that for a bit and then got an opportunity to go back to Wales, which is where my wife's family is from. I'm from North Wales, she's from South Wales, so I got a chance to run Oakwood Theme Park, which I absolutely loved and probably would've been there forever if an opportunity hadn't come up with Merlin and Merlin, it was to look after the rest of Europe and the rest of Europe was basically anything in their midway, so Madam Tussauds, Dungeons, Lego Discovery Centre, Sea Life, that wasn't in the UK or Germany, so it was like Istanbul, Helsinki, Paris Blankenberge in Belgium, Spain. I mean, it was brilliant and I did that for a few years.Dominic Jones: Then I went and ran Thorpe Park for a few years, which absolutely loved because that was where I started as a teacup operator and I remember, there was a guy there, good friend of mine, he said, "I remember, when you were on the teacups, you said, 'One day, I'm going to come back and run the place.'" And I did, so amazing. And then, in that time, I had three kids and really was commuting from Christchurch, so decided to change careers again and come into the heritage world and came as the COO of the Mary Rose, which I did for two years, and then, during the pandemic, became the CEO, so quick sort of... Yeah. But lots of luck and right place, right time, all those sort of things, but that's good, right? That's most people's career.Kelly Molson: Whoa. That is amazing. I mean, you've been to so many different places. I love that you went full-circle at Thorpe Park as well. What an incredible story, to have gone in there as an operator and then end up running the place. That is amazing.Dominic Jones: Yeah, I loved that. And actually, all the jobs I've had have really become part of our story. I was talking to someone yesterday about the Mary Rose and they were talking about what they were going to do next but how the Mary Rose had been a massive part of their story and I said, "That's the beautiful thing about work and careers and life. Whatever you do, it becomes part of your story and you're part of their story." So whether it's Thorpe Park, whether it's when I opened up, for Virgin Atlantic, the Nairobi route for logistics and the Hamlin, it was amazing and I've been to Kenya probably more times than I've been to Birmingham, you know? So that's part of my story, and when I leave the Mary Rose, I hope isn't any time soon, this will always be... It'll be my favourite Tudor warship. I mean, it's probably the only Tudor warship, but also my favourite one, so yeah.Kelly Molson: That was the answer to my question, as well. "What's your favourite ship?"Dominic Jones: Yeah.Kelly Molson: Wow. I'm blown away by your career. I just think you've had such a phenomenal journey to get to where you are now. There's something that I want to talk to you about today and that's about your joint venture that you have with the Mary Rose and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. I just want to read out a tweet that I saw because this is what sparked this conversation, so this is a tweet that went out on the Mary Rose Twitter account.Kelly Molson: It says, "We are very pleased to share that Portsmouth Historic Dockyard saw a 150% rise in visitor numbers in 2021, reported by ALVA today. The significant rise in visitors demonstrates the effectiveness of the joint venture between Mary Rose and the National Museum of the Royal Navy in our first year."Kelly Molson: I am very intrigued by this because this has been kind of a constant throughout most of the podcast conversations that we have is about how collaborative the sector is, but this is really specific about two attractions collaborating together to bring more visitors in. I would love you to tell us about this.Dominic Jones: Well, yeah, the end result's fantastic. 150% increase in visitors. It really feels joined up. My son's school is coming in today so I was in the visitor centre and I was waiting to see what time he was coming in because he obviously wouldn't tell me the time he's actually in, so I was looking around the visitor centre and I couldn't be prouder, when you see the mixture of Victory and Warrior and Mary Rose, and how far we've come since we started, but if you go back in history, the Mary Rose used to be part of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and there was one ticket and there was a separate company called Portsmouth Historic Dockyard that ran it, and lots of trusts, at that time, there were lots of trusts that fed into it, and then, for whatever reason, some of these trusts went independent.Dominic Jones: And so when I joined the Mary Rose, we were separate. We had a separate ticket, visitor centre, if you like, so imagine, I guess, like a... You know when you're on holiday and there's people trying to get you to go on boat rides or they're trying to get you to come into their restaurant? And literally, we were competing, so when a visitor was outside, there'd be the Mary Rose saying, "Hey, come and see Henry VIII's warship, the biggest Tudor collection in the world." I mean, it's amazing. And then the people next door, "Hey, come and see the Victory and the Warrior." And it just was really difficult for the customers, and for whatever reason, we weren't together and we had these two separate companies, so for quite a while, when I started, along with Helen, who was the CEO and Dominic and a gentleman called John in NMRN, we had meetings to see if we could get closer and to get a deal, and then I think Matthew joined, as well, from NMRN, and eventually we kind of got to an agreement.Dominic Jones: It was about, "What can we do together? What, collaboratively, can we do?" We came up with three things. We can sell tickets together, we could run a visitor centre together, so that's #1, the visitor side. We could market the destination together, and we could do strategic operations like events. So we then looked away and came across a deal, and for us, it was important that the two parties, so Mary Rose and the National Museum of the Royal Navy had a 50/50 parity of decision so it wasn't a one-sided joint venture and it was really... There's lots of talent in both organisations, so I've always admired what the National Museum of the Royal Navy have done over the years and how they've told history and how they bring it to life, and obviously, I love the Mary Rose.Dominic Jones: And so when we put us together, it was just a real opportunity, that synergy. You know when people say "one and one and you get three", but it was exactly like that and it worked really well, so we share marketing, so marketing costs, we share, we share marketing resource, so Mary Rose marketing people work along with NMRN marketing people. We do some things independently so our trusts are independent, our conservation, our research and all that sort of stuff, that's just Mary Rose and NMRN is just that, although we are working on some projects together, but in terms of the visitor, we have one visitor centre, we have one ticket you can buy, lots of options, we could talk about that, some amazing pricing we did which allowed us to do that.Dominic Jones: Because when you're competing against each other, you almost are encouraged to discount more, so we had, at times, the National Museum of the Royal Navy who were saying Portsmouth Historic Dockyard then might have a deal on Groupon, we might have a deal on Wowcher and you'd just be discounting, discounting, discounting, and you wouldn't be really getting across the real value for the customer, so yeah, it was really hard, and I remember, we would really fight for every single visitor because, for us, 84% of our money comes from tickets, so I remember, we'd get Henry VIII down the front, out the front, we'd have him talking to the visitors, saying, "Oh", you know, and with people talking in French and he'd go up in French and say, "Well, I was the king of France. Why are you going to Victory? Come to Mary Rose." But he wouldn't be taking them away from Victory, because that would be bad, but he would be saying, "Go to both." And we'd always be positive about NMRN, but we'd also want people to come to Mary Rose because that was how we were going to survive.Kelly Molson: Just going back to those times, then, was it more like a rivalry than anything?Dominic Jones: Yeah, it was really hard.Kelly Molson: So it was really difficult?Dominic Jones: It was really hard. I mean, we all respected each other, but it was really hard. It was like one of those ferry terminals or restaurants on holiday. I mean, I remember, we would flyer, like circus marketing, bumping into the brand, resort domination, we called it. We would be literally, when it was sunny because you can't blame the weather, when it was sunny, we'd be on the beach with Mary Rose leaflets saying, "Hey, get out the cool, we're air-conditioned, come to the Mary Rose." We were literally in all the restaurants, we had colour-in sheets, "Come to...", it was all about getting everyone to come and actually, we quickly realized that the NMRN was spending so much money on getting people to Portsmouth that we needed to make sure when they're in Portsmouth, they came to the Mary Rose and we did.Dominic Jones: I mean, I look back on it now, we had adverts that had, because we'd been very lucky with Tripadvisor, five stars, I mean I would've dreamed of that at Thorpe Park, but five stars constantly so we'd have posters that say, "You've just missed the best thing to do in Portsmouth." And then another one. "Turn around." You know, like when you go to Camden Town and there's a McDonald's, a Burger King and then outside the Burger King, there's a sign. "Why are you going to Burger King? Go to McDonald's." It was like that, so it wasn't great.Kelly Molson: It's quite intense, as well, isn't it, for the visitor?Dominic Jones: Yeah.Kelly Molson: That's a lot of pressure.Dominic Jones: Well, it is and I would do it and I would literally go down and leave, because you've got to leave from the front, and I would put my Mary Rose coat, which I've still got here, and I'd be down the scenic and we'd be... And I remember coaches would turn up and one of the ladies who was fantastic with us, Sandra, she's now one of our Visitor Experience Managers, but she'd jump on the couch and say, "Have you booked your tickets? Where are you going? Can I tell you about the Mary Rose?" And she'd bring whole coaches in. It was hard and it was really... I went to sleep every night easy, because it was so tiring and it wasn't sustainable and we did need to get a deal, and actually, the National Museum of the Royal Navy and the Mary Rose always treated each other with respect, but it was like the Battle of Victory Gate and that's not the way to behave and that's not the long-term way to run a business.Dominic Jones: So what was really great was we've got a deal, we got the ability to sell tickets together and we got the ability to work together and there's some really super talented people in the National Museum of the Royal Navy and in Mary Rose and we did some great things, so when we reopened after COVID, we did this really cool video where we had Henry VIII and we had some of their characters from Warrior and some of their actors all visiting each other's attractions in the lift, wearing face masks, getting hand sanitiser, and it just feels joined up.Dominic Jones: I mean, I've done lots of partnerships in my career. At Merlin, we had a Sea Life in Helsinki, which was a joint venture with a theme park called Linnanmaki. If you ever get to interview this lady who ran Linnanmaki, or she might the CEO there, she was amazing, but we had this joint venture. See, it's really hard in a joint venture because, especially if it's a 50/50 parity decision one, you've got to get agreement and that means that you work really hard on doing the right thing, so what's quite nice is if we were on our own, we probably would've done marketing campaigns and other things which were okay, but because we end up working together and we've got to make sure we get that joint agreement, the results is always way better. It's brilliant. And the customers benefit, because it's one entrance, it's one ticket, there's a lot more value in it, so yeah, it's been really successful.Kelly Molson: I hadn't realised quite how intertwined the organisations were in terms of decision-making and marketing, like you say, and sharing all of those resources. You talked a little bit about the visitor centre. Did you have to change the infrastructure and stuff? Did you have to build new buildings and all of that and agree on that?Dominic Jones: Well, no, they had a big visitor centre because, I mean, they've got a lot more footprint, more attractions, they've got the Warrior, they've got M.33, they've got a Submarine Museum over in Victory and we've got the Mary Rose, which is amazing. And so we had a building called Porter's Lodge, which was here and then there's the gate, and then they had their visitor center and their visitor center was perfect, so we moved in there, but we agreed to make it look and feel like it was Mary Rose and National Museum of the Royal Navy, so we spent a bit of money on the look and feel of it, so that was good and same with the brand and the marketing and making it feel like it was something new, but yeah, so there was a bit of that.Dominic Jones: I mean, in terms of infrastructure, we went with their ticketing system because it made more sense because it would be a bigger cost for them to change. We went with some of the Mary Rose's media buying because, at the time, we were buying media cheaper and better. And actually, now, we're in the process of going to tenders together, so the digital agency, we've done together, the PR agency, we've done together and it's great because it's a bigger portfolio and you get different views, and I always think the best way to run any business, so, for example, the Mary Rose or Thorpe Park or wherever it is, to talk to your customers, to talk to your staff and then, obviously, to talk to the manage experts. And we get that in spades, because we've also got our staff and our customers and our volunteers, but we've got NMRN staff and customers and volunteers and together, we are getting some really cool ideas and things we can do, so it's working well. As you can see, 150% increase in the first year.Kelly Molson: I mean, I've read it with my own eyes.Dominic Jones: And I hope you saw, NMRN, they did a little nice fist bump reply, and it just is in the spirit of it. We are working together and I think that's so important.Kelly Molson: It is massively important. You mentioned something about pricing earlier, and we've spoken about this before, but you said that you did something interesting that you'd implemented that allowed you to grow the yield and the revenue as well. Was this something that you did jointly too?Dominic Jones: Yeah, it was. So we had to come up with a new pricing structure because we were doing something new, so they had, what was it called? Full Navy Ticket, which was for all of their attractions and we had an annual ticket, so when we merged, we had to come up with a new pricing structure and it's a good opportunity to change, and 84% of our business, our revenue comes from tickets, theirs is about, I think, 80% or so, I can't remember, so it's still important to them as well. So we had to get the pricing right and it allowed us to really think about what's the best value for the customer and what's the best thing to do that stops us having to discount heavily?Dominic Jones: So we created a... It's like a decoy pricing model, like supermarkets have been doing it for years, so if you buy one attraction, it's a really bad ticket. I mean, still, a few people buy them, it's a really bad ticket, so it was... I mean, it used to be £18. We put the price up to £24. It used to be, if you bought one ticket, you could visit that attraction all year. You can only visit it once. So we made it a really unattractive ticket, so that's your lower decoy, so the idea of that is you only buy that if all you really want to do is go to the Mary Rose or all you want to go is go to the Victory and if you've just come to see one of those things, that's the sort of money you would pay, it's very competitively priced with other things on the South Coast, so that's what we did.Dominic Jones: And then we created a Three-Attraction Ticket or Three-Ship Ticket, which was slightly more money, so that went up to £39, which was the biggest sort of sting, about a £15 increase, big, big jump. And that was an annual ticket. That was, you could pick your three attractions and visit them all year. And then we did, "But for £5 more, you could have an Ultimate Explorer and have everything including the..." And that sort of, so you've got the lower decoy, which is the single attraction, then you've got the medium decoy, which is three ships, but then you go, "Well, for £5 more, you could do everything."Dominic Jones: And 80% of people do the Ultimate Explorer and they do everything, and it's so good value. I mean, it's less than the price of a football game and football game, 50% of the time, you're disappointed, and you don't get long, do you? It is incredible value and you get to go to all the attractions, you get out on the water, it's brilliant. So we've got that. And then we were going to put in an upper decoy, now, an upper decoy is a premium, really expensive ticket, so for example, we might, "We have, at Mary Rose, you can go into the ship for £300 and have a private experience." And we were going to put that in, but actually, because the decoy system worked so well, we didn't need that so we've just kept it as Single Attraction Ticket, Three-Attraction Ticket and Ultimate Explorer and it's working really, really well.Dominic Jones: So yeah, that's our pricing. And because of that, we don't have to discount because we put all the value and loaded the value in, actually, we don't have to discount. And then, when we do discount, we want to reach the right people, so, for example, we do, between the months of November and February, we do a Loyal and Local campaign where we go out to Portsmouth and Southampton regions and we say, "Bring a bill in and you can get a considerable discount." All year round, we do a discount for people who've got a Portsmouth leisure card, so anyone who's on Universal Credit, so they get 50% off.Dominic Jones: And we do some other really cool community engagement stuff between us with schools and stuff like that, and then if we do do a discount, so discounts are still important, so there's some amazing partners out there, GetYourGuide, Picnic, lots of the providers that really support businesses, Virgin, Ticketdays, all that sort of stuff. But we do it at the right level, so we've got like a playground, so whereas before, we might have been competing against each other, thinking, "Oh, we need to discount by 40% or 50% and then give them extra commission so they push it." We now do it at a really fair level, so there is a bit of a discount, but it's not much.Dominic Jones: And then for the consumer, we want the cheapest, best-value ticket to always be on our website. And we used a couple companies, so we used a company called, they were called Brand Incrementum, they're now called Magic Little Giants, we use them, we use some insight into what previous businesses have done before, but we copied the American Six Flags website model. If you ever want a quick lesson in pricing, just go to Six Flags. Their website is that... I mean, you're into websites, right?Kelly Molson: I am.Dominic Jones: It's the best website for pricing. I love it and I check it nearly every month. It makes me laugh, how focused they are on decoy pricing and how in-your-face they are, but how you don't know it as a consumer unless you know. It's amazing. It drives my family mad. I love it. Anyway. Yeah.Kelly Molson: This decoy pricing, I've never heard that phrase, I've never heard that used in pricing before. This is all new to me.Dominic Jones: It's like supermarkets when you get... And I remember, we've got a local supermarket near us and the guy did, "buy one bottle of wine, get one wine free". And then he had, "or buy one wine for £7 or buy two for £7". We were always going to buy two for £7 or two for £8. It's all that sort of trying to encourage behaviour, but he didn't quite get it because recently, I went in, it was like, "buy one, pay for one" and I was like, "Isn't that... That's the same as normal, yeah?" "Yeah." But he's a nice guy so I bought one. Well, that's my problem.Dominic Jones: But no, it's the same way supermarkets have been doing, where they try with the club card to get you to purchase things, or they're trying to do that, and all we're trying to do is encourage everyone to go for that Ultimate Explorer, which is the best value. It's almost like you can imagine it on the website, it's got a sign saying, "Pick me." So even to the extent we still don't, this day, discount our Single Attraction Ticket on our website. We don't give any discount for it and then we give a £5 discount on the three attractions and £5 on Ultimate Explorer. But yeah, loving the pricing.Kelly Molson: Love this. This is such great insight. Thank you for sharing. This partnership is really intriguing to me because I think it seems like the perfect setup, right? Because you're literally neighbors in the same area, you could make this work really well. What advice would you give to other attractions that are thinking about partnering with other attractions? Like what would be your top tips for people to make this work well?Dominic Jones: I mean, it's really hard. You've got to think about, because often people see it as competitors, but you've got to think in terms of getting the customers or the guests or the consumers, whatever you call them, giving them the best value, and during lockdown, when we were being interviewed and stuff, we'd always say, "Come visit the Mary Rose or come visit..." Once we did the joint venture, "Come visit the Historic Dockyard. But also, if you can't come visit, go visit your local museum, go visit anyone." It's important to share that, and I think there are always benefits of working together, you're always stronger together.Dominic Jones: When I was at Oakwood Theme Park in Wales, amazing theme park, you're in West Wales and we were thinking, "Well, how do we reach further and advertise more?" And actually, we ended up working with a farm, which was a stunning farm that had rides and animals called Folly Farm down the road and we worked, then, with Manor House Wildlife Park and Heatherton, and you actually work together and you can work together and I'd always say, "Try it on something." So try it whether it's an event or try it whether it's a destination marketing campaign. I mean, we're working with the people of Portsmouth, so with... "The people of Portsmouth", that sounds a bit grand. We're working with attractions in Portsmouth on trying to get people into Portsmouth, so we do something with Portsmouth Council where the Spinnaker Tower and D-Day Museum and Mary Rose and National Museum of the Royal Navy and now Portsmouth Historical Dockyard, together, we advertise in London because actually, advertising in London individually is really expensive, but if you do it collaboratively.Dominic Jones: There's lots of ways to do stuff collaboratively and find another angle. So we've got other people on our site that we're not partners with at the moment, so the Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust, amazing people who run some of the small boats that we did the Gunboat Race with the D-Day veterans on the weekend. Fantastic. So yesterday, we had a really great Volunteers' Tea Party to celebrate the end of volunteer and we had the volunteers from the Property Trust, we had the volunteers from the NMRN, the volunteers from the Mary Rose, there's always some synergy and I would say, in any way, find it.Dominic Jones: Everywhere I've worked, I've tried to get partnerships with local businesses, with other theme parks, with other attractions, because, actually, it's your stronger together, and if you're going, especially, after a local market, because you've always got to love your locals, that's the most important thing. If they see that you actually are the sort of people that work with each other, it makes them almost more proud of you. You remember the Game Makers in the London Olympics in 2012 and how amazing they were and how they did that sort of course where everyone was recommending all this stuff to you, that's kind of what you want, but I would find some common ground, whatever it is.Dominic Jones: Whether it's lobbying, we found common ground at Thorpe Park with other attractions to lobby the government for things, for VAT to level... Or whether it's in Oakwood, trying to get some advertising to get people from Bristol to cross the bridge to come into Wales or whether it's, I'm trying to think, in Amsterdam, we worked, so Madame Tussauds Amsterdam and Dungeons, which I was responsible for, we worked with Heineken because they had this amazing experience and with Tours & Tickets, so we'd make sure that if anyone came to Amsterdam, they came to our attractions. It's those sort of partnerships, finding the common ground and making it work.Dominic Jones: And don't be scared of it, because you are always bigger and better together and customers have so much choice, so working together delivers amazing results. I would never want to go back to not being part of a partnership with the National Museum of the Royal Navy and I would love it if we could do more. We are keen to do more with other attractions in the South to get people to come to the South Coast, to come to Hampshire. But yeah, I would definitely do...Dominic Jones: And also, you get bigger buying power, so say, for example, Merlin are really strong, so they don't necessarily need those with other partners because they can do a campaign in the press, Sun, Days Go Out and you've got all the Merlin attractions, but if you're individual attractions, you can't, so if you do a partnership with your competitors, you can then suddenly say, "Right, well, we want to do a Days Out campaign in the press between all these independent attractions."Dominic Jones: I mean, it's brilliant. I love it and I love, also, this industry, how collaborative especially the heritage side is. You can say, "Oh, I was thinking about doing this. What do you think?" Or, "What do you think about that?" And everyone will share and everyone is almost willing you to be successful. It's crazy, right? It's one of the best industries in the world. If you were in, I don't know, the restaurant business, you wouldn't be doing that, would you? Or another... It's so good. Anyway, hopefully, that answers your question.Kelly Molson: Oh, absolutely.Dominic Jones: I get very passionate about it. I'm so sorry. I love it.Kelly Molson: I'm so glad that you do because it answered my question perfectly and I think you've given so much value to listeners today in terms of all of the things that you've done, I couldn't have asked for a better response. Thank you. It's a big year for the Mary Rose, isn't it? And I think it would be very right that we talk about that. So it's your 40th year celebration this year, isn't it?Dominic Jones: Yeah, 40 years since the raising, so 1982, October. I am obviously older than you so I remember watching it on Blue Peter as a child and it was the world's first underwater live broadcast. It was watched by over 60 million people worldwide. I mean, it was amazing of its time and so yeah, 40 years, and because of that, we've now got the world's biggest Tudor collection of everyday life, there's nowhere else in the world you can get closer to Tudor and we've got the biggest maritime salvation, so we've got a lot of plans to celebrate. Unfortunately, the pandemic got in the way. During the pandemic, I'm not going to lie, it was horrific. There were times when we were drawing a list of who we were going to give the keys to, got really, really bad and it got dark for everyone and every museum, every attraction, every business, I'm not trying to say, "Oh, poor us." Everyone had that tough time.Dominic Jones: But it meant that actually investing, we were going to do another building, we were going to do a whole museum dedicated to the raising and actually, probably one of the best things that came out of it is we didn't because we got the joint venture, which is brilliant, our trading improved, we had a fantastic summer and then we were like, "Right, we should really do something for the 40th anniversary, but we can't afford taking another lease of another building or building another building, so what can we do?" And we managed to come up with a few plans, so the first thing we're doing is we're doing a TV documentary, which is going to be brilliant, coming out in October. Honestly, I've seen, they started some of the filming and the pre [inaudible 00:37:39], it's going to be brilliant.Kelly Molson: Oh, that's so exciting.Dominic Jones: I can't give too much away because we've had to sign something, but it's going to be great. And actually, we even had, because we're responsible for the wreck site, so we had Chris and Alex who helped raise the Mary Rose, our Head of Interpretation, Head of Research, amazing people, they were out diving the other day because we're still responsible for the wreck site and it just gives you goosebumps. I saw the footage and oh, it's amazing. So we got that. We're also building a 4D experience.Dominic Jones: So when we reopened last summer, we opened with this thing called 1545, which was an immersive experience and we wanted to get across the Mary Rose didn't sink on its maiden voyage, it was Henry VIII's ship that he, when he came to the throne, he commissioned two ships, the Mary Rose was one of them, it fought in lots of battles, it had a long life and then sank defending Britain in a battle, by the way, the French who were invading was twice the size of the Spanish Armada, but because history's written by the winners, we don't hear that.Dominic Jones: But amazing, so we did this amazing, immersive experience. We got Dame Judi Dench to do the voice and you feel like you're going to get sunk. Well, the ship does sink and you go under and then you go into the museum and it's so good and we were like, "We want to do something for the end. We want to have a finale that says..." Because the thing about our museum, it's authentic. There's 19,700 artifacts. You can't get that anywhere else. I mean, it's just brilliant. Anyway, so we thought, "How are we going to end this?" And the thing we don't do justice to is the finding, the raising, the excavation, all the divers, there was 500 volunteer divers. From the 1960s, people were looking for it.Dominic Jones: I mean, Alexander McKee, who found it, was on the news and people would say... It was like an Indiana Jones movie, they were saying, "Oh, he's never going to find it." And other people were looking, the Navy were looking and there was a bit in Indiana Jones where they got the map the wrong way around and all of that. Brilliant. So they found the Mary Rose and then they got Margaret Rule who was this amazing lady who had, when she went to university, I think she didn't get a place at university at first because she was a woman and this is amazing, today's day story, and she didn't dive, she was an archeologist. And then she said, "I'm going to dive." Taught herself to dive and without her, this museum, the Mary Rose wouldn't be here, so Alexander McKee, Margaret Rule, two amazing people, both of them...Kelly Molson: What a woman.Dominic Jones: Yeah, what a woman, but both of them, both of them, without them, we wouldn't be here. So we want to tell their story, but also, we want to put the guests and the visitors to what it's like to dive, so with a mixture of real-life filming, footage from these 500 volunteer divers, outtakes from the Chronicle programs that are on the BBC, including, if we can get it to look right, even His Royal Highness, Prince Charles diving. It is stunning.Dominic Jones: So we're going to take the guests on a bit of a pre-show with the history, then they're going to get into the 4D theater and it'd be like you were boarding a red, going out to the wreck site, there'll be a dive briefing, you'll have the wind in your hair, the seats will be buzzing, but I'm hoping it's this good. I better ring the people after this [inaudible 00:40:38].Kelly Molson: You're really building it up, Dominic.Dominic Jones: Yeah. Well, it better deliver. No, they're brilliant. Figment are amazing. They're so good. So you get in there and then you dive and then you go down and you see what it's like to be under the water. The Royal Engineers were involved, the divers were involved and then you'll be there when the Mary Rose is raised, we're even going to recreate the moment where it... Oh, it'll be brilliant.Dominic Jones: So in answer to your question, we're doing a documentary and a 4D experience, and we've got anniversary lectures so if you're around in October, come and get involved. We've got a lot of people, from historians to divers to... Just talking about the relevance of the Mary Rose and the history of it, and also the diving, and we've got a new coffee table book coming out, so we've got lots and lots and lots going on.Kelly Molson: Oh, my goodness. It's all going on.Dominic Jones: And if we'd have done it the old way, if we'd have done it with a new museum and a new building, I don't think it would've been as good. I mean, I joined the Divers' Legacy group, so about 150 of the divers, on a Zoom call a few weeks ago and it's just, it takes you... These people, who, some of them are retired now or bear in mind this was 40, 50 years ago and hearing their stories and it's living history and it's so important that we tell these stories and capture them now, because in 50 years, they won't be here, and part of our responsibility, our charity objectives, if you like, is to tell the story and forever, and I think that bit of the story's missing, so if that's one thing that we do while I'm at the Mary Rose, I'll be really proud.Kelly Molson: Ah, that is wonderful. And it is [inaudible 00:42:12].Dominic Jones: You have to come, right? You're going to have to come.Kelly Molson: Well, this is the question. When do I need to come to experience everything that you've just sold to me? Because I am sold.Dominic Jones: Yeah. You probably want to come after our anniversary, because we're hoping to launch all this around that time, which is in October, which is, now, this is an interesting one because this was a good conversation with our trustees and our board. "Do you want to launch something in the off-peak period? Don't you want to launch it at Easter or the summer or..." And my view is we should launch it because it's the right thing to do and we're launching this in October because it's a legacy, we want the divers there, we want as many of them there as possible and it's going to be at the Mary Rose forever. This is the ending to the Mary Rose Museum. So it's not like we're launching something for Easter or summer, so we are going to launch it in October, so I'll let you know the details, come and get involved.Kelly Molson: All right, absolutely. I am there. If it's as good as what you've just described, then it's going to be one amazing day out.Dominic Jones: It'd be better. And then, and final thing, sorry, which we're not doing, but I wanted to do is we've still got some of the Mary Rose down in the ocean, so one day, I'd like to bring that back up. I don't think I'll be here to do that because it's probably be in 15 years' time or something because we need to raise a lot of money and do that, but we want to bring the rest of her back up or whatever's left down there back up, and that's quite exciting because our story continues. We still do research.Dominic Jones: We did this fantastic piece of research on skeletons, on human remains. It's a really cool diversity story. Out of the eight skeletons, one was Spanish, one was Venetian, two were North African, second generation, not slaves, a real diversity story in Tudor England. Amazing. Maybe the Victorians whitewashed history. Who knows? But what a great story. And we keep learning and we've got this amazing team of curatorial staff and all of our staff, from the maintenance to the visitor staff to the volunteers and every day, we learn something new, so [inaudible 00:44:03] we want to do. And then, at some point... Have you seen The Dig on Netflix?Kelly Molson: Yes. Yes.Dominic Jones: Great film.Kelly Molson: So good.Dominic Jones: Great film, but I want to write to Netflix to do The Dive. Can you imagine? This story about human endeavor with the Mary Rose? It'd be amazing, so we'd like to do that as well at some point, but we just don't have enough hours in the day, right?Kelly Molson: No. Just add it onto that long list of stuff.Dominic Jones: Yeah.Kelly Molson: Wow. Thank you.Dominic Jones: So if you know anyone in Netflix, let us know, or if anyone from Netflix is listening, get in touch, we want to do that. It'd be cool.Kelly Molson: I would love it.Dominic Jones: I've already casted.Kelly Molson: If someone from Netflix was listening, that would be incredible. Who have you casted?Dominic Jones: Well, so local, because you've got to get local, so for Margaret Rule, I reckon Kate Winslet, she'd do a good job. Great actress. I mean, we've already got Dame Judi Dench, so the same sort of caliber in our 1545 experience, and then also another local who could bring the Alexander McKee, Kenneth Branagh, but to be honest with you, Netflix can do all of that, because let's be honest, I'm not going to make movies, am I? I'm running a museum. But I just think it'd be really cool. It'd be really cool.Kelly Molson: I don't think there's anything that you couldn't do, Dominic, to be honest, after this podcast, so who knows?Dominic Jones: It'd be really cool. Yeah, who knows?Kelly Molson: All right, last question for you, a book that you love that you'd recommend to our listeners?Dominic Jones: I love this question and I really struggled, so I went back and thought about a work example, because I think that's probably more useful, so in all of my career, I've come across lots of people who talk about strategy and I have my own view on what strategy is, but there are lots of books you can read about strategy and there's only one book, in my opinion, that is worth reading and it's this, Good Strategy/Bad Strategy. Hopefully, it's still in print. It is the only book to read on strategy. It's the best book I've... And without this book, I don't think I would've been able to do half the stuff that I've done, because it's all about how you formulate your decisions, how you make your decisions, what the outcome is, it's about execution, it's about everything that, for me, you need to be successful, so I recommend this book. Really good book.Kelly Molson: Good Strategy/Bad Strategy. I have not read that book, but I feel like that's going to go...Dominic Jones: You should read it.Kelly Molson: Yeah, that's going to go top of my pile. All right, listeners, if you want to win a copy of this book, as ever, if you just go over to our Twitter account and you retweet this podcast announcement with the words, "I want Dominic's book." And then you will be in with a chance of winning it. Oh, my goodness. I have had such a good time listening to you today. Thank you so much for coming on and sharing. It's been so valuable. Yeah, that's blown me away today. I'm very excited about coming to visit and thank you for sharing the insight into your partnerships.Dominic Jones: Yeah. Absolute pleasure. And thanks for being kind with the icebreakers, you're going to get the rubber, that's going to your collection.Kelly Molson: Oh, yay. A rubber rubber.Dominic Jones: Because I was really upset that you've got a rubber collection without the Mary Rose. That actually hurt my feelings. It hurt my feelings.Kelly Molson: Well, I'm sorry, I've never actually visited the Mary Rose.Dominic Jones: Well, we're going to put that right.Kelly Molson: We are going to change this, aren't we? So yeah, I'm sorry. I will come and get my rubber in-person, then. Don't post it to me. I'll come and get it in-person when I come and visit.Dominic Jones: Yeah, let's do that. Thank you.

In this episode, Jeannette talks about understanding what your purpose in life is. What it is that drives you to succeed, your why.  Understanding your why enables you to be crystal clear on what you want out of life. Jeannette shares two simple models anyone can use to uncover their purpose.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Most people rarely pause from their busy lives to think about their why. If you do not know what you want you don´t know where you are heading, so never actually get there. The vision cascade model is a top-down approach.  Identifying your values is a critical part of understanding your why. Only have 3 to 5 focus areas. If you don´t know how to start, use Jeannette´s 2nd reason why model. Don´t worry if you can´t identify your reason why immediately. You will be able to do it, over time.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We are so focused on managing the day to day that we don´t always think about our reason why. ´ ‘What do you want to be written on your gravestone?' ‘You can get really clear on your vision, your reason why using the top-down and the bottom-up approach.'   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life.

I'm here with a mutual back as you can all Stuart Webb  02:33no problem. Listen, we're, we're, we're, we're having fun. That's the I'm really grateful to you, Ted and Lee, for taking some time today. We're just going to do five questions about your business. And let's try and let's try and have a sensible discussion as to to business owners. So what's the ideal client? And how are you? What What problem do they have when you first meet them.Teriann (Ted) Matheson  03:02So generally, when parent buses come to us, they are tired, they are rushed, they're stressed, they're not living a life that feels good to them at all. They're not spending any time like proper quality time with their kids or their partner or their friends. Their health, or their mental health, like physical or mental health might be suffering. Or they might find that they're not getting results in their business like they want just because they're trying to keep up with every single part of life.Stuart Webb  03:33Yeah, and I know as a parent, but at least now a much older person. But that difficult balancing act is almost impossible to make happen, isn't it? So what what problems do you see them having and making before you try and sort of help them to to do what you do?Leigh Matheson  03:53Well, I think they sort of I guess they're out of whack, you know, that they're feeling like they're not achieving what they want to in their business. They've they're not being present as parents, as Terry mentioned, you know, the stress, the health, suffering, you know, their work, performance is not great, their sales might be suffering, there might be turning over staff because they're not paying enough attention in that aspect as well. All these things are sort of contributing and piling on to them. And it's just building up building up and building up to they have to do something. And I think some people you know, then go well, businesses with me and they go back to a job or, you know, or something else has to give yeah,Teriann (Ted) Matheson  04:33sometimes a relationship will suffer. Yeah. You know.Stuart Webb  04:36And so what's, what's the what's the intervention you bring? What's the thing you do to try and resolve some of those issues?Leigh Matheson  04:46Well, I guess we try and change their mindset a little bit. So we get them out of the mindset of having to do everything themselves. They shouldn't have to be, you know, attending to every single job doing everything day to day, at home and at work. It's breaking that mindset of, you know, it has to be me only I can care as much as anyone else sort of thing. So it's breaking that mindset. And again, to understand that there's help out there for them to do, you know, you know, survive better and get along better and thrive better. Yeah.Stuart Webb  05:19Sorry, Terry, you were gonnaTeriann (Ted) Matheson  05:21say quite often when we've been brought up, I don't know about you. But you know, we were brought up with if you if you want to get somewhere, you've got to work hard. If you want something done, well, you've got to do it yourself, nobody's going to care about your business or your money the same way that you do. So then when you take that into a business, you've got all those things playing in the background. And so you, you try to do everything, because that's how you think you'd be successful. And same at home, you know, a good parent, make sure you get nutritious meals, the house is clean you there for all the events. So you try and do that, because that's what you've been shown a good parent is. So when we sort of talk to them and say, you know, that was when we're all balled up in, you know, 70s 80s, whenever you were brought up, that was sort of the mindset, we're 20 years into the next century now, where, with COVID, and even before that, there is so many different support things that you can get the same benefit without you being the person doing it. So we just sort of take them out of that might have worked back then when there was one parent at home more, maybe one more person who goes out to earn more, whereas now most people tend to have both people working in the household. So it's just changing that mindset. So that they understand that they can still get where they want to go. But maybe it doesn't have to be it does not have to be them doing every single thing themselves.Stuart Webb  06:41It's a great mindset to try and change as well, isn't it because, you know, I, I speak a lot to people in businesses. And it worries me that so many business owners often try to do everything themselves, as you say, because they never ever believe that anybody else can care as much as they do. But also, they have to recognise that very often, they are not the very best person to do their accounts. This person to write the copy for their website, because actually, there are people who are highly skilled and better at it, and they would be much better off giving those jobs to the people who are good at it. And as I often say to them that, you know, they they do what I call, they use the path of least assistance, because they do their very best to sort of say, well, I'm the only one that can possibly care enough. But actually, they're not very good at it. So they're pressed about things which they don't actually need to get stressed about. Yeah, exactly. You'reTeriann (Ted) Matheson  07:38exactly right. That's, that's not their areas of strength, right. So it's not the best use of time, a job that can be done by someone where they might pay themselves less frees them up then to earn more. Brilliant. Yeah.Stuart Webb  07:51So what's the valuable free resource and free action you bring to the audience today that will enable them to grasp some of these concepts a bit better?Leigh Matheson  07:59Okay, so if people go to our website, parent, Boss, life.com, and there is a free book there, that is the five quick ways to get back eight plus hours in a week. Yeah. And that just goes through, you know, that's more of the home base, sort of, you know, outsourcing resources that people can use. And we go through a lot more, you know, in other areas for your business as well. But with this freebie, it's just gives you quick and easy ways to get those eight hours back per week. And we've done Yep, perfecting.Stuart Webb  08:33rolling across the bottom of the screen at the moment is that website, which is parent boss live.com. And that's a free resource that gives you back eight hours a week. Yep. Which I think is a whole day if I remember.Leigh Matheson  08:46pretty much exactly. But it's all the stuff you end up doing out of your your regular workout. So it's you know, you have your workout plus all this extra stuff that you have to do. SoStuart Webb  08:56if you were if you were having to work Saturdays in order to keep your your, your your business going. But now you can spend Saturdays with the kids, this is the way to do it. This is the way to get your Saturday back so that you have Saturday watching the kids play footy or whatever it is they go into gymnastics or swimming, you get the opportunity by doing this to actually spend that quality time even with your spouse if you have to. You can even do that. Work is so great. So that's that's that's a great free resource. Has it been a particular book or concept that has really sort of helped drive your drive your thinking or the way in which you manage your your your business?Teriann (Ted) Matheson  09:41I think for us it was more about not a book per se but it's just we through experience for so many years of being business owners and being parents we just could not make this concept of the equal 5050 work life balance work. You know in reading that everywhere you're supposed to be able to have equal time In each side, and you might just get the balance, right, and then one of the kids will be sick or you lose an employee, you know, and it gets thrown out of whack again. So we could never make it could never make that work. And we realised that it was us running backwards and forwards between work and life and work and life and work and life, it was more like a pendulum. You know, we wanted to be able to spend time, like proper time, focus time on one side and not worry about what's happening on the other side, because it was taken care of. So I guess the concept that we sort of took was the work life balance 5050. And we just sort of turn it on side a little bit, if you get what I mean,Stuart Webb  10:37I do, I do, I have to, I have to be honest with you, I do get a little bit upset with the words work life balance, because they should never be in balance. For me, I've always, I've always thought you know, if you hold a small, sweet, that's yellow, up arm's length, it can look like the sun, but I can absolutely promise you one is very much more powerful than the other. And, you know, to be honest, if you think of your business, it's that small, sweet candy and, and the sun has been this big yellow ball, which is actually your family, one of them is one, the thing that you should be spending more of your time worrying about. So it is not about is it it is supposed to be making sure that you keep the important things important.Leigh Matheson  11:19Exactly. And they just lead to so much stress. You know, everyone's cuz it's a buzzword and whatever I should be doing. And all that sort of thing is what you know, the pressure is on you, you know, both sides of a partnership. And that's where the stress comes from. So if you sort of, don't give yourself a break, it's about managing your time and as Tarun said, making sure the other side is taken care of. So you don't have the worry on that side.Stuart Webb  11:40Terrific. Well, we've had a great discussion, but I bet there is one question that you're currently thinking, I wish he were asked me this really important question which he hasn't yet asked. So I'm going to give you the opportunity now, which is where I relaxed, I think I've done all the questioning. So I'm going to give you the say the question now. So what is it that you wish I had asked you? And please, once you've asked the question, and then also answer it, otherwise, we won't get the value.Teriann (Ted) Matheson  12:09I think for us, one of the key things is who are the most important people to us to help us live a good parent Boss Life. And for us, you know, in the business, we personally wouldn't go into business. Now, if we didn't have a bookkeeper, if we didn't have a person who did our social media, if we didn't have staff, who were trained in law, all the different jobs. So if someone came out, someone else can easily slot back in. And it's not us having to feel the house. So, you know, they're the most important people on the business side. What about on the last time?Leigh Matheson  12:44I think in the home side, it's you know, it says, honey do list sort of things as well, you know, whether it's out doing the lawns for an hour or two and the garden everything on the weekend or, you know, is it someone to clean the house so that someone's not slaving over the toilets every every week for, you know, all this countless hours. It's those sort of things that we just sort of do almost non negotiables. Now that, you know, that's our time, we want to protect it. We don't spend that time doing that sort of stuff. Yeah.Stuart Webb  13:11Brilliant. I love I love both of those concepts. This has been a fascinating discussion.

It has been a traumatic wait for news for the family and friends of the missing journalist Dom Phillips and the indigenous expert Bruno Perira. The search for them in the Amazon has ended after Brazilian police said a suspect had confessed to shooting them and led them to a site where human remains were found. Dom Phillips was from the UK but had been living in Brazil for more than a decade and was a long-time contributor to the Guardian newspaper. He was working on a book about the Amazon. Mr Pereira, a Brazilian who was on leave from his post with the government's indigenous affairs agency, was an expert on isolated tribes. Today's Mishal Husain spoke to the BBC's correspondent in South America Katy Watson and Jonathan Watts - the Guardian's global environment editor who knew Dom Phillips. (Image Credit: Reuters)

Welcome to Episode 57 with Leena Parmar of Citrus Connect Recruitment. Ours is such a deep and rich conversation, covering everything from building a team of soulmates, to the importance of tracking data for historical learning and future planning, to sustainable fashion. Her journey is very interesting, from high-level management in the fashion world to creating a very specific niche after losing her fashion job.  You won't want to miss when she tells the story about how they flipped the negative narrative about self-employed sales recruitment on it's head in the midst of the Covid pandemic. I love how she and her team were able to do a complete 180 and reframe the unsafe message to show just how safe and prosperous it could be in the world of self-employed sales. Leena and her team leaned on the data about people's reasons for working and threaded the data and facts into their marketing message. Brilliant! One of my personal biggest take-aways was Leena's advice to make four lists:  List things you're not good at,  List things you don't like to do,  List things you're really good at, and  List things you love doing.  This is how you start to write job descriptions when it's time to hire team members. You can delegate the things that you're not good at and that drain your energy, so you can take all of your good energy to keep doing what you do best. And the bonus is that you're creating fulfilling work for someone else who is good and loves doing the things that don't light you up. Leena's Bio: Leena founded Citrus Connect Recruitment over 12 years ago, helping companies grow by matching them with the perfect sales candidates. Business Women of the Year nominee, and winner of the Best Sales Recruitment company in Yorkshire in 2021, Leena works incredibly closely with her clients to create a recruitment plan for short and long term business planning. In her personal life, Leena has a huge desire to live a healthy, conscious and simple lifestyle with a huge heart for sustainable fashion.

While visiting friends in New Hampshire, Hartnett became fascinated with nineteenth-century robber baron Austin Corbin's historical estate, and a real life Doctor Doolittle that worked there! This surreal property, Corbin''s Park, became a secret, exclusive hunting park that still exists today. The true story is fascinating and it's no surprise it inspired Unlikely Animals—already receiving rave reviews! “Hartnett masterfully balances a story of deep loss with the perfect amount of hilarity and tenderness.”—Booklist (starred review) “Hartnett's whimsical storytelling casts a spell.”—Publishers Weekly “This is a big novel doing big things. It bears some similarity to Hartnett's much- loved first novel, Rabbit Cake. . . . But Unlikely Animals is a broader, brassier, and even more fiercely tender story. In this, her second novel, Hartnett lands an astonishing leap as a storyteller.”—The Rumpus “Wistfully charming . . . This unapologetically genre-bending tribute to life and death, and the beautiful weirdness found in both, has potential to spark exceptional book club discussions.”—Shelf Awareness Author Annie Hartnett released her first novel, Rabbit Cake, in 2017 to critical acclaim. Numerous media outlets included it on their “Best of ” lists, and it was named a finalist for the New England Book Award, long-listed for The Center for Fiction's First Novel Prize, and shortlisted for The Crook's Corner Book Prize for Best Debut set in the South. Reviewers called it “[a] treasure” (People Magazine) and “truly terrific and original” (Booklist). Now, I'm excited to share that Hartnett has knocked it out of the park once more with her second novel, UNLIKELY ANIMALS (Ballantine Hardcover; On Sale 4/12/2022). When I first started reading this tender, funny, quirky story, I realized quickly that I had never encountered anything like it before.

In this episode, Jeannette talks to Gerald Ratner who is now a highly sought-after speaker, an author and entrepreneur. In the eighties, he transformed the UK jewellery industry and took the US by storm. In 1991, the Ratner´s Group netted profits of £125 million, which would equate to almost a £billion, today.   They talk about that journey, including how he lost it all when he made a joke when speaking to the Institute of Directors at the Royal Albert Hall, in 1991. Gerald also explains how he went about building multiple brands under one umbrella, including top-end shops and why he prefers to use the acquisition model to grow a business. As well as speaking about the mental health issues he suffered from and what he did to solve them.   KEY TAKEAWAYS   For two years, Ratner Group shares were the fastest-growing on the FTSE100. What you say in a speech needs to be carefully tailored to fit your audience, the type of event and the venue. When things go wrong there is always a silver lining. Pre-selling membership is a great acid test for a business idea. Acquiring businesses rather than starting from scratch brings many benefits. It is much easier to face the problems rather than hide from them. Exercise every day it helps you to balance your life out. Look after your staff, it's the right thing to do, it is good business and creates great loyalty. You are not going to achieve anything by being a wallflower. The key to success is making smart decisions.   BEST MOMENTS ‘In 7 years, we went from losing £34,000 to being the world´s largest jewellery business. ´ ‘One the advantages of being sacked is that I´ve now become a much better husband and father.' ‘Happiness actually is about giving things to people not just taking things.'   EPISODE RESOURCES Gerald Ratner: The Rise and Fall and Rise Again - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gerald-Ratner-Rise-Fall-Again/dp/B07732GQTG Reinvent Yourself - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reinvent-Yourself-Reinventing-Your-Successful-Opportunity/dp/1909846570/ Gerald Ratner´s full 1991 speech - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj9BZz71yQE   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life.

He observed that “the people who shouted the loudest and appeared to give the best offers sold the most”.   Ratner joined the family business in 1966 and built up an extremely successful chain of jewellers during the '80s, of which he was chief executive. The shops shocked the formerly staid jewellery industry by displaying fluorescent orange posters advertising cut-price bargains, and by offering low price ranges. The Ratners Group consisted of Ratners, H. Samuel, Ernest Jones, Leslie Davis, Watches of Switzerland and over 1,000 shops in the US including Kays.  Ratners was one of the few British retailers to succeed in the US.   Gerald Ratner was, until 1991, one of the UK's most successful and well-known businessmen. Unfortunately, he went down in history when, at a corporate speaking engagement for the Institute of Directors, he jokingly described one of his non-jewellery products as “total crap” and compared another to an M&S prawn sandwich; suggesting the sandwich would last longer.   Gerald Ratner was, until 1991, one of the UK's most successful and well-known businessmen. Unfortunately, he went down in history when, at a corporate speaking engagement for the Institute of Directors, he jokingly described one of his products as “total crap” and compared another to an M&S prawn sandwich; suggesting the sandwich would last longer.   This, now infamous speech, spelt disaster for both Gerald and his company, Ratner Group, the world's largest jewellery retail company which included H Samuel and Ernest Jones, of which he was the Chairman and Chief Executive,   However, Gerald's story of how he dealt with the aftermath and returned over a decade later to become, once again, a major player in the online retail sector is a remarkable journey of perseverance, passion, resilience, entrepreneurial skill and a remarkable lesson in overcoming crisis and adversity.   ABOUT THE HOST Jeannette Linfoot is a highly regarded senior executive, property investor, board advisor, and business mentor with over 25 years of global professional business experience across the travel, leisure, hospitality, and property sectors.

Casting Down the Dragon (6) (Audio) David Eells - 6/12/22 The Man-child & Bride Help the “Little Sister” Escape the Dragon   Claire Pienaar - 5/28/22  (David's notes in red)    I dreamed Riaan and I were in a large, walled city that was modern but completely run down. (Our names mean, “Little king” and “Brilliant, representing the Man-child and Bride. I asked the Lord who Riaan and I represent. My finger landed on Psalm 16:6 by faith at random: The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; Yea, I have a goodly heritage.)   There was no electricity, food, open shops or cars running. (This city represents worldwide Babylon who has a body of people who are already ruled by the beast. (In the natural their economy is crashing because it was crooked.) Spiritually, they have no power of the Holy  Spirit, no food of the Word, and they don't get anywhere in their spiritual walk.) All the city's inhabitants were sitting in an arena or  stadium in the middle of the city. It reminded me of the Roman Colosseum. In the “emperor's box”, there was a terrible emperor and his group of leaders. (The emperor represents the elite of the DS.) One of these leaders was a tall, stocky old woman with dark hair. (The dark haired woman in the emperor's box represents the Harlot, who rides the Beast.)  They all had the mark of a red dragon on the backs and front left pockets of their blazers, and their ties. (Representing being dressed up with the works of satan.) There were big banners of this red dragon all over the stadium. (The people are mere spectators [and pawns] to what the rulers of this institution say.).    Riaan and I (Representing the Man-child and Bride) were tasked with helping a young girl care for a newborn baby boy. (This young girl represents those who are coming out of the Babylonish, apostate Churches. She is the “little sister” of the Bride learning to care for her fruit of Christ in her represented by the newborn baby boy. Song 8:8-10  We have a little sister, And she hath no breasts: What shall we do for our sister  In the day when she shall be spoken for?) She had no confidence, authority, or knowledge on how to care for her baby. (The elect of God, who are stuck in apostasy, have not been taught by the false shepherds how to feed their new born spirit man. Psa. 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.)  She was placed in the center of the stadium and we had to help her, but not touch her. (Isa. 52:11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; cleanse yourselves, ye that bear the vessels of Jehovah. And Jer. 15:19 Therefore thus saith Jehovah, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, that thou mayest stand before me; and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: they shall return unto thee, but thou shalt not return unto them.) She was thin and pretty and dressed in a white wedding dress. (She appears to be innocent but ignorant and passing through the apostate church system. The apostate Church considers themselves to be the Bride of Christ but they are not. Jesus is coming again for a spotless and blemishless Bride. God sees His elect as beautiful and in white because He sees the end from the beginning.).  She had a little veil over her face. (Because she is still veiled to the truth of who Jesus is. 2 Co. 3:12-18 Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech, 13 and are not as Moses, who put a veil upon his face, that the children of Israel should not look stedfastly on the end of that which was passing away: 14 but their minds were hardened: for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remaineth, it not being revealed to them that it is done away in Christ.  (Being under the law of man separates from Christ, just like being under the law of God.) 15 But unto this day, whensoever Moses is read, a veil lieth upon their heart. 16 But whensoever it shall turn to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.) The crowd boo'd every time she did something right, so she was very confused at the mixed signals. She struggled to hear us and was really struggling to take care of her newborn boy, but she was making slow progress. (These mixed feelings represents the fight between the flesh and the spirit for the saving of the soul. It also represents the spiritual fight we have to go through to come against everything we've been taught in the Harlot system.).  It became apparent to me that this young girl's mother was the “Harlot" who was in the emperor's box. This mother had treated the young girl so poorly as a child and the young girl kept wanting to blame, shame or deflect all her bad habits and incompetencie's onto the dark haired mother “Harlot" in the emperor's box. (Many of God's elect don't want to take personal responsibility for their actions; instead they want to blame others. A lot of Christians point back to the Catholic Church as a mother of Harlots, not recognizing that they themselves are members of a daughter of the Harlot. As they mature, they can then see their own error.) Riaan and I were in an exclusive suite next to the stadium. Normally, these private suites are up at the top of the bleachers, but our suite was right next to the field on the ground level. (This represents that the Man-Child and Bride company have humility, and empathy with those who are God's elect; chosen to run the race and perform the work of growing their spirit-man). (Our little sister is our little sister, but some would make her their enemy. The hypocrisy is, that they came the same route through the Harlot.)  Riaan kept on telling this young girl to look up, and I kept on telling her to pray. (The real good news of the Gospel teaches us to look up at the sun/Son and get our eyes off of ourselves. Psa. 121:1-3 ...I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: From whence shall my help come? 2 My help cometh from Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.) Eventually she saw her own self as the main problem and she started crying. Then she picked up the baby and loved it. (She recognized and appreciated her spiritual man.) Praise God! Riaan and I were so happy! (True repentance, and realizing the wickedness of the flesh that must be cut down to yield a greater love for the mystery of Christ in you, the hope of glory.)   At this point in the dream, Michael came in to our suite at the bottom of the stadium or arena. (I believe Michael in this dream represents Father, because his name means “who is like God?”).  He asked us what we did with the young girl and we gave him a full account of her as he took notes. We didn't know if it was a “good report” ...but both of us had clear consciences that we'd done what was required of us. Michael was nodding and smiling. (God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.) (Father has put the first fruits in places where we can help those whom He has chosen to come out from among them, and to realize the great mystery, “Christ in you, the hope of glory”).   The emperor decided then to kill us. A siren blast sounded, and everyone in the stadium heard an announcement that was read, which stated that Riaan and I were to be found and killed. I did not hear the siren or the message, but I did see the people taken over immediately by blood lust while they pursued us, and we had to run for our lives. (The dragon in Church and state desire to devour the Man-child and Bride. The more Christ-like a people becomes, the more “anti” or against them the antichrist is. The faction, represented by the terrible emperor, is a part of the Dragon who is trying to devour the Man-child and prevent him from helping the “little sister”. In our own situation, the leader of the faction tried to destroy our website and took down out videos, which were raising up and teaching the “little sister.”)  (They will persecute all those in the Man-Child and Bride companies for helping the “little sister" come out of their systems. They will, with one accord, be united against us.). (Rev. 12:13-17  And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the man child. 14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.) Everywhere we ran, we came up short. We ran into dead-end streets, closed doors, etc. Even though we wanted to escape, I knew in my mind, in the dream, that every other city would be similar to this, but it seems this one we were in was the worst. (Mat 10:23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.)  We ran to the west gate in this warehouse, and as we got there, a small army of men dressed in blue, boy-scout uniforms broke open the metal doors of this part of the city. For a second, I thought “Our liberators are here!” On their turquoise neckerchiefs they had the fish symbol and it said “Baptist State University City”. (Representing the immature, militant arm of apostate Churches.)  They were as well organized, if not better, than the leadership of the dragon city we were in. It dawned on me then that they were worse, because they used the name or symbols of the Lord to control people. They were no better than the leaders of the current dragon city, who were using the symbol of the dragon beast to control the people. (I asked the Lord who the blue and red uniformed people represent, and my finger landed on “You brood of vipers!” from Mat 3:7, (in context 7-10) 7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said unto them, Ye offspring of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of repentance: 9 and think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And even now the axe lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.) I knew they were of the same beast because instead of hugging us, and getting us to safety, they immediately took out clipboards, and iPads, and were very official in their speech. It was like they were making sure they had all the right information from us before they would help us. (A person who is not filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word of God have as much in common with the world as they do with the Church because they are following their carnal reasoning.) These represent the organized apostate Church systems who's doctrine is salvation by good works.) It seemed they still had electricity and food because they looked well, and their uniforms were crisp, freshly pressed and clean. (All those  religious people who follow the mind of the flesh and the works of the flesh have the spiritual mark of the beast in the forehead and in the hand.) The men had white plaster painted on their faces like clowns. (Clowns are not real and they are foolish.) The plaster was so thick it looked like a mask, and I could not see their expressions. (As with all religious organizations, the pupils end up “masking” or mimicking their leaders.)  They were eery and kept looking at their iPad screens to determine if they could harbor us or not. (Looking at their computers for direction is like following the Beast.) Riaan and I were trying to be patient but it was really difficult. It did not appear that we'd be leaving with these men any time soon and, interestingly, the people from the stadium were not pursuing us with fervor any longer. (If the devil can't keep you from Christ, he will try to sidetrack you with religion.)    The scene changed and Riaan and I were now in our home, which I think was still in the dragon city. (We returned to the rest, because we realized that the red-dragons and the blue-boy-scouts could not help us escape.). (2Co 12:9  And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.) … Now we really needed to get to the airport because we were still fleeing the big dragon city. (Come out from among them and be ye separate.) (We must trust in abiding in Christ in the heavenlies and not in the works of men to save us from the beast or dragon kingdom).   The woman of a couple we knew offered to drive us to the airport in her white car. We travelled on the R25 highway, which becomes the P91 highway. (The P91 represents Psalm 91, which is abiding in the secret place of the most high). ... As we were driving with her, the sky became lighter and lighter even though it was during the night. At 11:11 pm according to the car's clock, the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining like it was midday. (111 is the number of the Man-Child birth. Even as we descend into greater darkness here in the natural, it means the Man-Child anointing is closer and almost here!). (When the sun is directly overhead there is no shadow cast. Pro. 4:18 But the path of the righteous is as the dawning light, That shineth more and more unto the perfect day.) None of us were tired. We were energized by seeing the sun/Son shine in the middle of the night. We said, “We'll just stay awake like it's daytime and catch up on sleep when the night comes.”. Then the dream ended.  (John 9:4  We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.) I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random, and I received Psalm 62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my high tower; I shall not be greatly moved.   Here is the whole story of the Dragon and the Woman: (David's notes in red)   Revelation 12:1-17 And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman (The Church whose position, but not manifestation, in Christ is) arrayed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; (The doctrine of the 12 disciples) 2 and she was with child; and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in pain to be delivered. (This is Jesus manifested by Word and Spirit in a corporate Man-child body, just as all the other entities in this text are.) 3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems. (This is the first stage of the beast who is made up of the seed of all 7 world ruling kingdoms and all 10 continental divisions.) 4 And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth (The stars are the seed of Abraham by faith as God said. The tail is "the prophet that speaketh lies”.): and the dragon standeth before the woman that is about to be delivered, that when she is delivered he may devour her child. (This is happening now.) 5 And she was delivered of a son, a man-child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness (The Tribulation), where she hath a place prepared of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (The first 3 1/2 years if the Tribulation.) 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels; 8 And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. (He is being cast down now, He is losing his grip over the nations ruled by the DS Satanists who are being cast down by the Saints through the Alliance and spiritual warfare.)  10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him (The Saints who are exercising authority over satan that Jesus gave them.)  because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman (Church) that brought forth the man-child. 14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle (To overcome the world.), that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (The first 3 1/2 years if the Tribulation they are nourished by the Man-child just as Jesus did.) 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river (This is a river of lies just as we have a river of the water of truth.), that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth.  (The worldly believe the lies)  17 And the dragon waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and hold the testimony of Jesus:   The Dragon Surrounding Mt. Zion Claire Pienaar - 11/26/21 (David's notes in red) I received this vision as I drove home one day as I was approaching "our" mountain, behind which is the town we live in. (Spiritually, the Bride lives in the cleft of the rock, in the secret place of the Most High.) (The town where the Bride lives is Jerusalem or Zion.) In the natural, this mountain that is before the town has a big cross that is naturally engraved into it. We and other believers have noticed it and it provides much comfort to us when we drive back into town from the north or east. (This mountain represents the kingdom of the Church.) In the vision, I saw a dragon made of the clouds. It had two horns, a collar, and its tail was super thick and long. It was draped around the mountain, but I could still see the cross. (I believe the Lord is using us, our town, and the cloud-dragon as a parable.) (The Babylonish dragon has held the kingdom of the Church as a whole in captivity and is now trying to take dominion over Zion the Bride.This is the way it was in the Assyrian assault when they took over Israel but failed to conquer Zion.)  I asked the Lord what it represented and He said, “This is a very oppressive spirit over the town. It is trying to overtake all who live there. Use your sword.” (The Bride must do spiritual warfare to cast down the dominion of the Dragon.) I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random and received Eze. 30:25 with my finger on "Pharoah shall fall down”.  And I will hold up the arms of the king of Babylon; and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am Jehovah, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of Egypt. (Pharoah was called a dragon in scripture too. Eze.  29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great monster (The word monster can be translated as dragon as in the KJV.) that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.) ... I am praying. We are at war, and we are victorious. Incidentally, we had praise songs playing all the way home, so we had already "sent the praisers out", as the children and I belted out the songs joyfully! (Praising the Lord for the victory already won by Jesus Christ will cast down the Dragon through our faith. 2 Ch 20:20-25 ... Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: believe in Jehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.  21 And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed them that should sing unto Jehovah, and give praise in holy array, as they went out before the army, and say, Give thanks unto Jehovah; for his lovingkindness endureth for ever. 22 And when they began to sing and to praise, Jehovah set liers-in-wait against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, that were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.  (God will faction the faction)   24 And when Judah came to the watch-tower of the wilderness, they looked upon the multitude; and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and there were none that escaped. 25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches and dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in taking the spoil, it was so much.)    Slaying Our Little Dragon Beasts Fio Galchenko - 6/5/2022 (David's notes in red)   My dream started with a 'crocodile like' body that my dad (Representing the Father) was teaching me how to control. (This represents our portion of the dragon that has been given us to conquer and that it is our flesh. The flesh is the enemy of God.) He showed me how to grab the mouth so it does not bite me and how to avoid its teeth. (We have to control the mouth or it will come back to bite us.) This crocodile like body then became a dragon that was human like. It was not an adult yet as the wings were not fully developed and the body was still covered with brown fuzz. (The dragon of Rev 12 is the body of all lost mankind.  The flesh is also lost.) We knew that this dragon was going to get dangerous if we let it live longer and grow bigger.  We needed to destroy him while he was still young. (Yes the flesh fights against us and wants to devour us.  We must put it to death daily so he doesn't grow to overcome us.) I would hold him by the back of the neck and his horns would poke and scratch at my hand as he twisted and tried to get free. (The flesh wants freedom but if it gets it, it grows out of control.) I told a nearby person to bring me my shotgun and he brought it but never loaded it.  I sent him back to get ammo while I wrestled with this dragon/human. (The shot is the words of God. It can't be killed without the promises represented by the ammo.) The dragon was upset that my two sons, Fio and Max, did not like him and that they were afraid or uneasy around him. (Our fruit of Christ; represented by the sons is our spiritual man and is at enmity with the flesh and just wants it gone. Gal. 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would.) At this point the dream changed and the dragon was gone but some people brought to me a container filled with the dragon's blood. Then I woke up. (The death of our portion of the dragon frees the spiritual man. The blood of the flesh is full of the Adamic nature of sin that Jesus replaced with His blood.)   The Dragon's Witchcraft is Defeated Chuc Osegueda - 6/3/2022 (David's notes in red) (Chuc, means "to throw something out or away" representing the righteous who war with the swamp and drain it.). I dreamt that I was driving down an empty and deserted highway in a dune buggy. (The Highway of Holiness has been deserted by the majority of Christianity. Only the First fruits are currently traveling it. A dune buggy is mobile in sand, which is God's identification for the seed of Abraham, the Christians.) I then saw an old woman with long grey hair. (As we will see, this is a factious witch that was recently exposed and left UBM.)   She was throwing some strange and unique looking ninja stars. (Ninja stars are one of the ninja's primary defensive weapons used as delaying tactic, although this woman was using them to kill and cause harm). (The factious people are throwing their witchcraft curses at the righteous and their slander is to bring anyone who fails the test of love and truth to spiritual death with them.) This old woman was throwing these stars for practice in an area that I would describe as a mini golf course, but for ninja star throwing practice. There was a little girl who was fetching the stars for the woman after she would throw them. (This represents those immature in obedience and faith who have been among us who ended up being accomplices before they left. Thank God this process of cleansing out the tares is coming to an end.)  As I crept past them, I realized this woman was a factious witch who left UBM.  (Her name represents "accusing others of wrong doing".  The Devil is the accuser of the brethren and he has lots of helpers. She is just a symbol of the witchcraft that is in all of the faction.)  I crept in between them, and what looked like a tennis ball shooter but was actually a ninja star shooter.   I drove past her and kept going down the empty highways, and I noticed a stray ninja star on the ground. The star had sharp blade edges like a normal ninja star, but was shaped like a military vehicle with blades surrounding it. (They are very militant like the Faciast Nazi's in church and state who try to force their will, hatred, slander, and corruption on others. This is a test to see who will chose faithfulness to the Word, Jesus.)   I grabbed the ninja star and continued to drive, and then noticed that the factious witch was behind me facing me. I turned around in the vehicle to face her, as the dune buggy was still rolling down the highway.  The witch was aware that I picked up her stray weapon (the ninja star)  and she then whipped a ninja star at me with precise aim. (We had dreams where the factions own weapons or curses were being thrown back at them by the angels who are our ministering spirits. The Lord said, “I will curse them that curse thee”. We cannot send our own curses but every trap they lay they must fall into it as scriptures say.  i.e. they must reap what THEY sow.)  I tried to dodge this star, but it did hit me on my right shoulder, however I was unaffected. (As we mature in warfare "we are not ignorant of satan's devices” and become immune to them through exercising repentance and faith in the Word. Jesus gave us "all authority" over their curses to “Bind” them. As the Lord showed us, our guardian angels will throw their weapons and traps back on them.)  I seemingly absorbed the star and it did not harm me. I whipped (her own) ninja star back at her and it hit her (this is all happening as the dune buggy is still rolling down the highway and I am turned around to face her). (Atta boy Chuc. :o) She then whipped another star at me with precision, but I don't remember if it hit me. By this point, it didn't matter because I was not hurt by her attacks, although she appeared very skillful at what she was doing. I whipped another star at her and hit her in the center of her chest (heart) or the center of her forehead, but I cannot really recall exactly which. I believe she was hit in the chest area (heart). (Both the heart of evil and mind of flesh are symbolized here.) The witch and I were now in a more confrontational position which is on a sidewalk curved to the right and I was out of the vehicle.  (Witchcraft cannot prosper against us when we are in the “right". Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.)   Then l saw a large video screen display on the outer edge of the bend (like what you see in Times Square NYC).  I punched the witch in the face in retaliation against her assaults on me (which seemed strange for me to do because I wouldn't punch a woman, let alone an old one in real life.) (To deface someone is to change peoples view of them.  Declass of their sins is doing just this by revealing their sins to the world.  This is happening in the world with the factious DS just as it is happening in the Church with our own faction.)  The little girl was still with her, but she had aged a bit in that time and she was now older, but still a young girl. (Perhaps some of the accomplices will mature a bit as they see the loss of the faction. We have dreams where this happened.) I waved my right hand in front of the witch, and she became just a video image on the screen, as if she was sent there and was now stuck and could no longer cause anyone harm. ("That passeth away" came to me.  Isa 29:5  But the multitude of thy foes shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be in an instant suddenly. And Jer 13:24  Therefore will I scatter them, as the stubble that passeth away, by the wind of the wilderness.  And  Hos 13:3  Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the dew that passeth early away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the threshing-floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney. Words just received by faith at random: Psa 94:1-11  O Jehovah, thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.  2  Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: Render to the proud their desert.  3  Jehovah, how long shall the wicked, How long shall the wicked triumph?  4  They prate, they speak arrogantly: All the workers of iniquity boast themselves.  5  They break in pieces thy people, O Jehovah, And afflict thy heritage.  6  They slay the widow and the sojourner, And murder the fatherless.  7  And they say, Jehovah will not see, Neither will the God of Jacob consider.  8  Consider, ye brutish among the people; And ye fools, when will ye be wise?  9  He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see?  10  He that chastiseth the nations, shall not he correct, Even he that teacheth man knowledge?  11  Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man, That they are vanity. Psa 118:12-17  They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off.  13  Thou didst thrust sore at me that I might fall; But Jehovah helped me.  14  Jehovah is my strength and song; And he is become my salvation.  15  The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.  16  The right hand of Jehovah is exalted: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.  17  I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of Jehovah. I asked the Lord for a Word about the faction and put my finger down in the middle of Psa 109, which is a curse not from us but from God on the factious. Psa 109:1-31  A Psalm of David. Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;  2  For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me: They have spoken unto me with a lying tongue.  3  They have compassed me about also with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause.  4  For my love they are my adversaries: But I give myself unto prayer.  5  And they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love.  6  Set thou a wicked man over him; And let an adversary stand at his right hand.   7  When he is judged, let him come forth guilty; And let his prayer be turned into sin.  8  Let his days be few; And let another take his office. (They are Judas')   9  Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow.  10  Let his children be vagabonds, and beg; And let them seek their bread out of their desolate places.  11  Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; And let strangers make spoil of his labor. (They use their position while they are with you to steal from you with deception for they have no faith God will help them.)  12  Let there be none to extend kindness unto him; Neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children.  13  Let his posterity be cut off; In the generation following let their name be blotted out.  14  Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah; And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.  15  Let them be before Jehovah continually, That he may cut off the memory of them from the earth;   16  Because he remembered not to show kindness, But persecuted the poor and needy man, And the broken in heart, to slay them.  17  Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him; And he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him.  18  He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment, And it came into his inward parts like water, And like oil into his bones.  19  Let it be unto him as the raiment wherewith he covereth himself, And for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually.   20  This is the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah, And of them that speak evil against my soul.  21  But deal thou with me, O Jehovah the Lord, for thy name's sake: Because thy lovingkindness is good, deliver thou me;  22  For I am poor and needy, And my heart is wounded within me.  23  I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.  24  My knees are weak through fasting; And my flesh faileth of fatness.   25  I am become also a reproach unto them: When they see me, they shake their head.  26  Help me, O Jehovah my God; Oh save me according to thy lovingkindness:  27  That they may know that this is thy hand; That thou, Jehovah, hast done it. (Their leaders tell them that their curse is our fault but “the curse that is causeless alighteth not”.) 28  Let them curse, but bless thou: When they arise, they shall be put to shame, But thy servant shall rejoice.   29  Let mine adversaries be clothed with dishonor, And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.  30  I will give great thanks unto Jehovah with my mouth; Yea, I will praise him among the multitude.  31  For he will stand at the right hand of the needy, To save him from them that judge his soul. (Luk 6:37 And judge not, and ye shall not be judged: and condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: release, and ye shall be released.)   Worldwide Shakings/Satan Cast to Earth/144 Thousand Revealed Outpouring Gates YouTube - 6/4/22 (David's notes in red)   The Lord gave me two single words. He said, “World - Shaking.” I don't have a time-frame on this; I don't know when, but what I can  say is: This IS coming… I saw these two words and then I was taken in a vision and I'm going to try to describe the best way I can. It was like an epic movie, but a thousand times more intense.  I saw the whole of planet earth from space and it was shaking. At first It wasn't a violent shaking, but… it was just rumbling really hard. …and there were cracks happening throughout the world, dispersed in diagonal patterns, horizontal patterns, and vertical patterns. And as I was watching, I was like, “How does anybody survive this?” It became so violent. ... This was a worldwide earthquake. (Even though He's interpreting many of the events in the vision literally, I believe this worldwide shaking will be a time of spiritual shakings for the elect of God. We know from scriptures that there will be many violent earthquakes when Jesus returns in His Man-child reformers.) The cracks were going through the oceans and land. (the Bible says that oceans or seas represent, peoples, tribes, nations and tongues.) It did not matter. It was just obliterating everything. The whole earth was in an earthquake. ... (It will literally be by the grace of God that people survive this thing because the earth shook so hard that the cracks were like miles wide, it seemed like.) (The DS has seismic weapons and according to dreams they will use them. Insiders in the war against DS have warned to expect the largest earthquakes we have ever seen. We have shown that their fracking has a pattern, sometimes in a straight line across the country for the purpose of steering their earthquakes. Also, there will be a spiritual shaking for the elect people of God leading to a great revival.) From my vantage point from outer space, I thought, “That kind of crack would cave in parts of oceans. Oceans would just start to dive into these cracks." ... So then, as I'm looking directly at planet earth, out of my right periphery, I'm watching Planet X come, and it was so big. This planet was massive, and it was pitch-black ... but it had these red ...cracks in it and it seemed like it wasn't solid, but it was. (It is dark because the face towards us would be blocking the Sun rather than reflecting it.  Planet X was called by the Egyptians the destroyer and sometimes it was called the dragon because of its appearance with a tail. It appears to have brought the Passover and Red Sea judgments. The X means, “10” which is the number of the Law and judgment. We know from History that this is a literal planet and that God will use it for judgments described in scripture.) The atmosphere of this planet was so thick with black darkness as it came past the earth... so very quickly; in a moment. …There was this big transfer of black mist from the planet to the Earth. But it was really just demons… transferring to the earth really quickly. (Demons don't need a planet to live on for they are spirits but they could use this occasion of darkness to spread their alien deception and they could be cast down to the earth here too. Representing satan cast to the earth.) Then... the scene changed and these demons were in cities and they were flying. They appeared as bat... demons. They had weapons and spears. ... As these demons were ... attacking people, I saw these saints ...flying in the air behind them and they were hovering high above where these demons were attacking the people. (This represents the Saints, meaning sanctified ones, are warring in heavenly places against demon forces. The First fruits will be anointed with power from on High to war against satan and his demons.  Rev. 12:7-12 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels; 8 And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. … 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. 12 Therefore  rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.) The saints were like super heroes without the cape. … (This reminds me of a dream Garrett Crawford had where once the anointing was poured out on the saints, they looked like superheroes…)   The Anointing of the First-Fruits Garrett Crawford - 07/24/2008 (David's notes in red) I would like to share a dream I was given within days/weeks of finding UBM in the fall of 2006. I was standing in a plain (wilderness) all by myself. I looked off into the distance and I could see someone or something coming toward me. As it got closer I could make it out as a cloud. Within seconds it was right beside me and on this cloud sat a messenger from God. He had an invitation for me; it was in the form of a large golden telegram that was reminiscent of the golden tickets in the Willy Wonka movie. (A ticket to visit a wondrous land.) He said this was an invitation to attend a revival that was taking place in the mountains of the Yukon. (Meaning great river, i.e. of the waters of life.)   As soon as I took the golden invitation I found myself high above the Earth, flying over North America to the far left corner of the continent. This only took a matter of seconds as I flew thousands of miles across the nation and found myself at the foot of a snowy white mountain. I began to walk up this mountain and as I walked I looked down and saw that I had no shoes on! (We are to climb the kingdom of God, which in Dan.2:44 is a mountain. God demands we take off our shoes when we are on holy ground so that we are not separated from His holiness.)  I could not believe it! I had no shoes, walking in the snow but my feet were not cold at all so I kept walking up the mountain. After a long trek up, I made it to a stream and began to walk through the stream that flowed from the top of the mountain. (Walking in the rivers of the waters of life, the Word of God, that cleanses our walk.) There were large square stones that were placed in the middle of the stream for me to walk on. These stones were crafted and had a decorative border on them. (The foundations laid by the Apostles and Prophets.) They were massive in size -- must have weighed tons for just one of them. I continued to walk on these stones until I made it to the beginning of the stream in a small clearing at the top of the mountain. (The source of the "river of the water of life" is "the throne of God and the Lamb", as Rev.22:1 says.) On top of the mountain I saw a group of people who were standing on the bank of the stream. They were all lined up in a straight line and something very, very supernatural was happening to them. (These are the first-fruits to be anointed with the latter rain at the beginning of the tribulation. (Rev.14:1) And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty and four thousand (The Man-child Body), having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. {4} These are they that were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These [are] they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, [to be] the firstfruits unto God and unto the Lamb.)  Something was being poured on them from the heavens. (The coming of the Lord in His people through the Latter Rain. Hos.6:3 ... He will come unto us as the rain, as the latter rain that watereth the earth.) It was like water that glittered and shown brightly. It was so glorious. It seemed that the water was actually liquid glory. (2 Cor.3:18) But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.)  As I watched, each one of these people receiving this water was transformed into a more powerful being receiving his own special gift. I even saw one grow what seemed like angel-type wings. (Ability to move supernaturally by translation. They will be able to pass these gifts on to disciples, as Jesus did. Phillip translated.) I know this sounds crazy but they resembled superheroes. (More like "Christ in you the hope of glory".) Then I fell on my face and starting praising God. Next I heard one call out to the rest, "The world hates us now! They hate us! “ (Jn.15:18) If the world hateth you, ye know that it hath hated me before [it hated] you.   He seemed very troubled by this. I got this feeling that this hatred came on so quick that he could not understand why it was happening. That is when I was given the understanding that these people were to be sent back out into the world with their power and gifts to overcome the world. (Just as their Master, who was a type of them, did.) That is when I became bold and full of faith and said back to him in complete confidence, "Why do you question this? Did not the Master tell us this was supposed to happen? The world is supposed to hate us". (This is the beginning of the great revival at the beginning of the tribulation.) End of dream. Back to the Outpouring Gates vision: And then... I saw an insane overtaking. … The demons did not see the saints coming. They ... were flying ...in groups. It was like a wave ...overtaking all these demonic powers. They were clearing them out. And as I was watching this, I heard the Lord say, “Clearing out the mess.” And then the Lord began to speak to me, after coming out of the vision... and He said, “Salvation to the people will take place.” He said, “I will be their Savior again. I will reveal My 144, 000 to the world. (The 144,000 in Rev 14 are the Man-child body in Rev 12.)  They will be ready, purposed, and trained.” He said, “ 'Justice League' is their true purpose. My justice will flow through them. Healings will happen. Powers never seen before will be taking place.”  Then God took me into another vision after He said this (This is a spiritual parable) …and I saw this little Caucasian girl, in regular clothing, with blonde hair who was a part of the 144,000, and with her itty bitty little finger, she was swirling this massive thunderstorm; rotating it. …It looked like a thunderstorm, but it was also a tornado... at the same time. And as she was doing this, ... the clouds that started swirling at her finger, went up to the sky. (We must rightly divide the Word. This is spiritual not physical. The little blonde girl represents a small body of people. A body of people are often symbolized as feminine in scripture like the body of the Church and Bride and the Harlot, even though many of these people are male in the natural. So a body of physical men can be represented spiritually as female to demonstrate good principles. Female here represents they are able to receive the seed of the husband in fertile ground as in the parable of the sower who bore fruit 30, 60, 100 fold. Females bear fruit. Hair is a sign of submission in 1 Co 11.  Blond hair represents submitted to the sun/Son, which is blonde. He also is our husband because we only receive His seed, which the parable of the sower says is His Word. The harlot received the seed which was not that of our husband but the world, even though many of them are physically men. This Caucasian, representing white or pure, girl represents spiritually a corporate body of the First fruits Man-child body of 144,000 even though literally some of these are physically black men. The thunderstorm represents the power and authority that will come with the former and latter rain anointing on the Man-child. They are physically a MAN-child because only men are permitted to "teach or take authority over the man" in New Testament scripture. Jesus only chose men to take a position like this in the 12 and the 70 and as Bishops or overseers in the rest of the NT scriptures. Man-childs have been identified all through the scriptures as men, Moses, David, Joseph, Daniel, Ezekiel, Jesus, etc, etc. We must never add to or take from the precedent of scripture or we are brought under the last curse in the Bible.) And …there was a demon way over to the right who did not notice what was going on. She then sent the thunderstorm with her finger, and the demon looked at it and was in shock and was overtaken by this thunderstorm and was sent flying like hundreds of miles away... When I saw this, I was like, “Whoa! This is a little girl! She's a part of the 144,000, that's cool.”… (In this parable she represents all of the Man-child. The Bride, who were submitted to the Man-child Jesus, were spiritually identified by John the Baptist as Jesus' first disciples who were all men physically. He said, “He that hath the Bride is the bridegroom.") Then the Lord took me out of that vision and that was the end of it and the Lord said this, “Seek Me for more of this revealed. (Which we have done)  I will do great, awesome acts of My glory to showcase I Am the I Am.” He said, “Have faith and know I Am Who I Am and have not given Satan the control. Leave the world, stick with Me. I have plans not one has thought of.” And that was the end of that word...      Select LanguageAfrikaansAlbanianAmharicArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBengaliBosnianBulgarianCatalanCebuanoChichewaChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CorsicanCroatianCzechDanishDutchEsperantoEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchFrisianGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekGujaratiHaitian CreoleHausaHawaiianHebrewHindiHmongHungarianIcelandicIgboIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseJavaneseKannadaKazakhKhmerKinyarwandaKoreanKurdish (Kurmanji)KyrgyzLaoLatinLatvianLithuanianLuxembourgishMacedonianMalagasyMalayMalayalamMalteseMaoriMarathiMongolianMyanmar (Burmese)NepaliNorwegianOdia (Oriya)PashtoPersianPolishPortuguesePunjabiRomanianRussianSamoanScots GaelicSerbianSesothoShonaSindhiSinhalaSlovakSlovenianSomaliSpanishSundaneseSwahiliSwedishTajikTamilTatarTeluguThaiTurkishTurkmenUkrainianUrduUyghurUzbekVietnameseWelshXhosaYiddishYorubaZulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

After the success of Ep257, we're back with another instalment in the new practice series.  This time, with a friend of the show, Tony Ebel. I asked Tony how he would build a practice from scratch in a community where no one knew him and he only had $20K to invest. Tony shared the exact strategy he would use to attract new patients, what he would spend his money on and when he would hire his first staff member. After knocking it out of the park, I threw another “curly” question at him.  This time, imagine that you had to start a practice on the other side of the country, you were never allowed to visit in person and you couldn't deliver any of the services.  What would you do and how would you make this a success? This is where Tony excelled and his answers were dripping with wisdom. Tony explained how we would hire staff, what he would look for in associate chiropractors (this surprised me) and how he would accelerate the growth of his team members.  Brilliant! If you're considering buying a second practice or wanting to start one from scratch, then stop what you're doing and listen to this episode NOW! Enjoy the show. Thanks for all you do.

At its first primetime hearing, the January 6 committee nails Trump in the most unmistakable way possible. Brian interviews former White House Communications Director under president Obama, Dan Pfieffer, about whether the DOJ is moving too slowly, whether he thinks a Trump prosecution is likely, and how Democrats can compete with the MAGA disinformation machine. And gun reform activist Fred Guttenberg joins to discuss the tragic loss of his daughter, what he'd like to see Congress pass in the way of gun legislation, and his response to people like Ted Cruz for desperately trying to redirect calls for common sense gun legislation instead to doors.
