"911, what's your emergency?" The emergency here is Lauren and Rachel have only seen three episode of 9-1-1 (and not even the same episodes - Lauren's a screw up, don't worry about it). You know what that sounds like - it's another shitsorting episode! We're joined this week by Hailee of former Outlander shitsorting fame and Illy, our graphic designer and the BIRTHDAY GIRL. Wish her a happy birthday. And then go watch 9-1-1, it'll make her happy. Our sorting victims this week, after much deliberation, were Eddie and Buck, of Buddie shipping fame. We hear they're the hottest thing on TV since Dean and Cas, so we were excited to check them out, and...it's another one of THOSE pairings. Tune in for an episode where Lauren and Rachel have no idea what they're talking about, Hailee and Illy do, and Hailee gets convinced of something else anyway (we love you Hailee).

Ahead of a new era beginning at Cas, Turner talks openly to the RLR all about getting into the sport, his achievements in the game to date, scoring tries for fun this season but also about the setbacks in his career including the disappointment felt by all in the Tigers camp when missing out on the play-offs this campaign. A Grand Final winner with St Helens in 2013, Turner also previews this weekend's end-of-season finale at Old Trafford. Having come up against both Catalans Dragons and the Saints this season, the 32-year-old makes his call on who he thinks will triumph. Will it be the treble for 'the Red V' or will the Dragons make another huge statement in the bid for expansion of the game? All this and more in the Rugby League Review.

Training new team members are challenging. You are not only training them on things they need to learn and do… but you also need to help them integrated into your culture and engaged them in your vision.   The biggest mistake that most people make when we train our team members are only teaching HOW to do things. Teaching the HOW is essential, but it is only half of what they need to know.   You have to understand that even if they did exactly what they have been told… They will never do it as you do. They will never do it with the same enthusiasm. They will never do it and get the same result.   WHY?   Well, the reason is simple… they don't have CONTEXT. When you train your associates or CAs or anyone, the most critical element is to explain WHY they are doing this action or saying “x”.   The WHY helps them understand the INTENTION of the action. The intention gives them the power to modify and adapt the action to do it better.   If the goal is simply to get them to do it like you… then just teach them the HOW.   But you want them to make your practice BETTER… then teach them the WHY before the HOW. #LaurenceTham #DriveYourPractice #YourChiroCoach

Welcome back to The Simplicity Sessions, I'm delighted that you've joined us today. My name is Jenn Pike, your host, registered holistic nutritionist, medical exercise specialist, the best-selling author of the Simplicity Project and the creator of the women's revolutionary health program, The Hormone Project. This is a special episode today because it is my birthday. I have a unique birth story as I was adopted at birth; I was raised by my wonderful adoptive parents and met my birth parents when my daughter was 10 months old. I wanted to tell you this story because it made me into the woman, mother, and wife that I am today. My birth parents had me when they were 15 (mother) and 16 (father) years old. My mother didn't even know she was pregnant until she was 5 months along because she was having irregular periods due to her young age. My adoptive parents already had a daughter but decided to adopt another child after tragically losing my older brother Christopher at 19 months old after recovering from surgery to repair five holes in his heart. Soon after I was born and my adoptive parents took me into their care, they found out they were pregnant with my younger brother, Matthew (younger by 8 months). Life as a child within my adoptive parents' family was wonderful. I always felt loved and supported by my parents who told me I was adopted at a young age. I took pride in my adoptive status. I gave an award-winning speech in grade three on my adoptive story. My parents gave me the forms to find my birth parents at the age of 17. I was excited; however, I didn't fill out the forms right away because I had the opportunity to finish high school early to move to Japan and work as a model. I went away to school when I got back from Japan. It wasn't until I was married and pregnant with my first child, Emerson, that I decided I wanted to find out more about my birth parents to find out the family health history. After filling out a series of forms and a lot of patience, I finally got the chance to meet and speak to my birth mother. I discovered that my birth parents stayed together, got married, and had three more children: Matt, Spencer, and Emma. A fourth child, my parents' second pregnancy, was lost (another boy), which was similar to my adoptive parents' experience. I was very nervous when I first met my birth parents, but I was fortunate that my adoptive parents prepared a number of pictures when I was a baby to show my birth parents. I discovered that my birth siblings did not know about me. My birth parents never told them about me because my birth was a secret due to the nature of the times and how people would react to a young teenage pregnancy. It took me a long time to figure out how I felt about gaining an entire family that I did not know well. I would spend a lot of time with my birth parents and my birth siblings, but it was difficult to accept that my daughter would call them grandparents. Over time, I was able to get over the emotionally draining times and grew a bond with my birth family. I am forever grateful that I have this big extended family from which my husband, kids, and I interact with on a regular basis. Meeting my birth family and being raised by my adoptive family with such love and support throughout my life has shaped me into the person I am today, and for that I am eternally grateful.

He survived the surgery, but then didn't make it through the recovery. And so my mom and dad lost him at 19 months old. And my sister lost him.” “I have a baby coming in September and I have a baby coming in October. Would you like one of these babies? This is the conversation that happened back in 1979. “I, in fact, was the final private adoption done in Ontario before CAS came in and took over.” “...here's what I want you to know throughout this whole journey of me sharing this. There has never been a moment in my life where I have not felt loved from inception.” “I am so grateful to my mom and dad for being the home that my soul and my spirit needed in order to become the young girl, the mother, and the woman that I am today, because they're responsible” “...now I think I'm ready to fill out the forms because I want to know more about my health history. I want to know more about things that I need to understand in my own body and if I'm susceptible to anything. Now that we're starting to have children, I want to know it for them.” “...she says, hi, can I speak with Jennifer? And I said, yep and start crying. She says ‘hi, my name is Leslie. I am your birth mom'” “But at the same time, it was so emotionally draining and exhausting. Now we are at these points in our life where we have a really great relationship.” “I believe that I have had such a healthy relationship with my whole adoption story and with all of these new things happening and meeting my whole birth family, because my mom and dad were honest with me from day one.” “And that we may not arrive here in the family that we are going to be raised by, but we can most definitely end up in a family that we are meant to be loved and raised by. And that is my story”   Additional Information About Jenn - Jenn studied and graduated with honors in Human Anatomy and Physiology with such a passion that it propelled her to continue her education over many years.

As product of urban education, Le`Tanya is committed beyond the call of duty to lift the voices of BIPOC student and family voices. She began her journey in equity leadership twenty years ago as a student in the Today's Students Tomorrow's Teachers program (TSTT). In the TSTT program she fostered a love for mentoring, and nurturing students' critical consciousness. Le`Tanya graduated Manhattan College with a B.S and M.S. Ed in childhood and special education, Sacred Heart University with a CAS in Education Leadership and the University of Bridgeport with a Doctorate in International Education and Educational leadership. After graduating Manhattan College she joined the courageous educators in New York City, DOE. During her induction with NYCDOE she was as a self-contained teacher, inclusion co-teacher and a curriculum designer. Le`Tanya transitioned from her home in New York City to Connecticut after she got married and started a small family. Le`Tanya is a mom to three beautiful Black unicorns: 11, 8 and 1 years of age. Her eldest son thrives with epilepsy and autism. Le`Tanya prides herself that being a mother and wife made her a better teacher and advocate. Le`Tanya is a passionate advocate for Intersectionality issues of race, gender and ability as well as she serves on the Board of Directors for the Epilepsy foundation of Connecticut. For the past couple of years Le`Tanya has supported school partners across the Tri-state area on various topics including racial equity, special education transition, student discipline, co-teaching, culturally responsive family engagement, student attendance, special education leadership, culturally intelligence as well as she served on the advisory for the Black and Latino Studies curriculum as a contributor to the Black curriculum designer.

"Learning to Loath GMOs": A Critical Response to the New York Times   Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, July 27, 2021   In its July 19th issue, the New York Times Magazine published a brilliant piece of twisted pseudo-scientific propaganda. The essay, entitled “Learning to Love GMOs,” is truly stunning. Its author, journalist Jennifer Kahn, takes readers who would have little to no understanding of genetic engineering and genetically modified organisms (GMO) through a fictional labyrinth of out-dated and conflated GMO similitudes to an end point where readers might believe GMOs are really cool and there is nothing to be frantically worried about.    Kahn spins the story of Cathie Martin's research to develop a genetically engineered purple tomato high in the anti-oxidant anthocyacin as the work of a solo humanitarian to improve consumers' health by providing nutrient-rich GMO produce. What is missing from Kahn's equation is that the research was conducted at one of the world's oldest and most prestigious independent centers for plant science, the Johns Innes Centre (JIC) in the UK. The Centre, which is registered as a charity, lists over 500 employees and is funded by some of the largest proponents of genetic-modified plants, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council. JIC's website includes purple tomatoes as one of its projects that combines “transcription factors, biosynthetic genes and iRNA [interference RNA] with the availability of natural tomato mutants.”  iRNA, or Post-Transcriptional Gene Slicing, is a method to silence certain genes the researchers desire to curtail their expression.     The Times article makes an effort to advance the flawed agro-chemical mantra of “substantial equivalence” without citing the term. The early acceptance of GMOs was largely based upon the unproven hypothesis of “substantial equivalence.” The USDA's adoption of this concept during Bill Clinton's first term in the White House gave GM seed companies a free pass to avoid submitting trial evidence to prove the environmental and health safety of genetically modified crops. Since the ruling claims that GMOs are fundamentally identical genetically to their natural counterparts, no compliance of safety regulations should necessarily apply. Therefore Big Ag firms did not have to worry over strict regulatory hurdles, which otherwise apply to other products such as pharmaceutical drugs, processed foods, pesticides, cosmetics and chemical additives.    However, during the past decade a flurry of research has shown that the “substantial equivalence” hypothesis is patently false. Alexandria University in Egypt, the Permaculture Research Institute and the Norwegian Center for Biosafety each found genetically modified crops to be fundamentally different. In addition, studies have confirmed that nutrient levels in traditional, organically raised grown crops are substantially higher than GM varieties. New technological methods to create concise profiles of a food's molecular composition, notably “omics,” were not available in the early 1990s when Clinton wore the mantle as America's first biotech president. Omic technology destroyed the Big Ag's industry's arguments to support the lie about substantial equivalence. For example, Kings College London published a study in Scientific Reports of Nature revealing unquestionable genetic consequences between GMO Roundup and non-GMO corn. The differences include changes in 117 proteins and 91 metabolites.[1]   Despite “substantial equivalence” having been debunked, the erroneous hypothesis continues to linger in pro-GMO propaganda. However, in Kahn's recent essay, she attempts to shift attention away from the early generation of GMOs, which were engineered solely to sell more toxic pesticides, and emphasize GMO's potential for increasing nutritional health and to advance medicine. In order to add a bit of balance, Kahn quotes James Madison University professor Alan Levinovitz who accurately described one fundamental criticism, among many others, against GMOs. “With genetic engineering there's a feeling that we're mucking about with the essential building blocks of reality,” Levinovitz stated. “We may feel OK about rearranging genes, the way nature does, but we're not comfortable mixing them up between creatures.”     But most disturbing is Kahn's failure to make any mention o the trail of environmental disasters and disease risks due to consuming genetically modified foods. She completely whitewashes the matter; she prefers we may forget that Monsanto's soy and corn, which now represent the majority of these crops grown in the US, was developed solely to allow farmers to spray highly toxic pesticides without injuring the crops. These crops contain notable concentrations of the pesticides that then find their way into numerous consumer food products including baby foods. Nor should we forget that Round-Up grown foods may be destroying people's microbiome.  Last year, researchers at the University of Turku in Finland reported a “conservative estimate that approximately 54% of organisms in our microbiome are “potentially sensitive” to glyphosate. Despite her pro-GMO advocacy, if Kahn's conscience had led her to take a moral high road, she could have at least apologized on Monsanto's behalf for the trail of death and disease the company's glyphosate has left in its wake. The company has yet to atone despite losing three trials with $2.4 billion fines, repeated appeal losses, and being ordered to pay $10.5 billion in settlements. To date Monsanto's glyphosate poisoning has been identified with the suppression of essential gut enzymes and amino acid synthesis, gluten intolerance, disruption of manganese pathways, neurological disease, cancer, amyloidosis and autoimmune disease. Her New York Times article would have better served the improvement of public health as a warning rather than an applause to appease companies such as Bayer/Monsanto and Syngenta. And shame on the New York Times' editors for permitting such biased misinformation to find its way into print.    Kahn is eager to cite findings showing GMO benefits without indicating her sources. She tells us that environmental groups have “quietly walked back their opposition as evidence has mounted that GMOs are both safe to eat and not inherently bad for the environment.” Kahn doesn't mention who these groups might be. She reframes the Philippine story of the destruction of genetically engineered Golden Rice; yet around that time even the pro-industry magazine Forbes published an article questioning Golden Rice's viability and noting that its benefits are only based upon unfounded hypotheses. As for its risks to health, GM Watch in the UK points out the work conducted by David Schubert at the Salk Institute that the rice might potentially generate Vitamin A derivatives that could “damage human fetuses and cause birth defects.”   Kahn, who should be acknowledged as a highly respected science journalist and teaches journalism at the University of California's Berkeley campus, happens to be a contributing author for the Genetic Literacy Project (GLP) at the University of California at Davis, a public relations operation sponsored by the agro-chemical industry.  Monsanto/Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont are among GLP's industry partners.  It is one of the most frequently quoted sources of cherry-picked information by pro-GMO advocates and journalists. In our opinion, it is perhaps one of the most financially compromised and scientifically illiterate organizations, founded and funded to disseminate pro-GMO propaganda in order to prop up public support for GMOs and genetic engineering in general. In effect, some universities now act as private industry's lobbyists. This becomes a greater scandal when the university is a public institution receiving public funding.  GLP and its east coast partner, Cornell University's Alliance for Science, largely funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, serve as the GMO industry's clearing houses for public relations to spin science into advertising, propaganda and character assassination of GM opponents.   The Genetic Literacy Project is a key collaborator with another food industry front organization, the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH). ACSH has nothing to do with actual health science. It has been described by the independent corporate financial watchdog organization Sourcewatch as a thinly veiled corporate front that holds “a generally apologetic stance regarding virtually every other health and environmental hazard produced by modern industry, accepting corporate funding from Coca-Cola, Syngenta, Proctor Gamble, Kellogg, General Mills, Pepsico, and the American Beverage Association, among others.” ACSH also favors toxic pesticides, the use of biphenol A in products, cigarettes and hydrofracking.  It is closely aligned with pseudo-medical front organizations that criticize alternative and natural health modalities, such as Quackwatch and the Science Based Medicine network.    GLP sources a couple thousand corporate-friendly studies favoring GMO safety.  One review of over 1,700 studies, known as the Nicolia Review, for a time was the most cited source making the broadest claims for GMO safety.  However subsequent independent and unbiased reviews of Nicolia's analysis concluded that many of these studies were tangential at best and barely took notice of anything related to crop genetic engineering or GMOs. Many studies are completely irrelevant from a value-added perspective because they have nothing to do with GMO safety. Furthermore, other studies in Nicolia's collection conclude the exact opposite of their intention and give further credibility to GMOs environmental and animal and human health risks. When Nicolia published his review, he intentionally omitted and ignored scientifically sound research that directly investigated GMO safety and found convincing evidence to issue warnings.  For example, one peer-reviewed publication by over 300 independent scientists declared that there is no scientific consensus that GM crops and food are safe.  Not surprisingly, there is no mention of this study in the Nicolia Review.   It is no secret that Monsanto and Big Ag have significant influence over UC-Davis's agricultural department and divisions.  The bogus economic studies trumped up by the Big Ag cartel to defeat California's GMO labeling bill Prop 37 were performed at UC-Davis and then publicized through the GLP. Gary Ruskin, who has been filing Freedom of Information Act requests, has publicly expressed deep concerns that UC Davis is acting as a financial conduit for private corporations and interests to develop and launch PR attacks against academics, professors, activists and other institutions who oppose those same corporate interests.     For GMO opponents, the name Mark Lynas, may send shivers down the spine. As soon as any journalist or researcher mentions Lynas' name approvingly, one can be certain which camp the author represents.  You can be assured you will be reading words on dirty laundry washed in even dirtier water. Therefore when Kahn quotes Lynas as if he were an unbiased authority about GMOs, we know we have boarded the wrong train and will reach a destination of distorted scientific facts and self-righteous corporate praise.    The public watchdog group US Right to Know describes Lynas as “a former journalist turned promotional advocate for genetically engineered foods and pesticides who makes inaccurate claims about those products from his perch at the Gates Foundation-funded Cornell Alliance for Science (CAS).” Lynas has accused those who would inform the public about Round-Up's carcinogenic properties as conducting a “witch hunt” by “anti-Monsanto activists” who “abused science.”  Lynas has denied his role as a shill for Big Ag. However, a decade ago, The Guardian acquired a private memo from the pro-biotechnology organization EuropaBio about its initiative to recruit “ambassadors” to preach the GMO gospel. Mark Lynas was specifically named in the document alongside then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan as a prime candidate to pressure European agencies who were skeptical about GMO claims, promises and health and environmental risks. In short, Lynas has been one of Big Ag's most invaluable foot soldiers for over a dozen years.    Similar to the Genetic Literacy Project, the Cornell Alliance for Science does not conduct any agricultural research; yet its tentacles to attack GMO opponents are far reaching in the media. CAS was launched in 2014 after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation granted the alliance $5.6 million in start-up monies. The public relations Alliance makes the unfounded claim to represent “balanced” research about genetic engineered products.  One of its missions is to influence the next generation of agricultural scientists to embrace GMO science. For CAS, as for Bill Gates, GMOs are the only food solution for Africa's future. Five years ago, organic New York farmers mobilized to pressure the Trustees of Cornell University to evict CAS from the campus and halt its influence over the school's prestigious College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.   One argument Kahn wants us to buy into is that there were mistakes made during the early roll out of GMOs in the 1990s. But, somehow, mysteriously and without any solid evidence, we are supposed to believe that these same companies now engineering new generations of crops have learned their lessons. All that has really changed has been the genetic technology for altering plant genomes. The same mind-set that only technology and the quest for food dominance remain. After hundreds of thousands of dollars were flushed away during a genetically modified wheat project, a retired professor of plant agriculture at the University of Guelph in Canada remarked:   "We – scientists and the public – are so malleable and gullible (or is it because researchers and research administrators are just desperate for money?), that we swallow and become promoters of the mantra that GM is somehow going to feed the world: by resolving the monumental threat of burnt toast? Or browning in cut apples? Or flower color in carnations? Really? For shame. Let's be honest. The one and only reason these people, corporations, and governments are funding this sorry use of [lab] bench space is because it may yield a proprietary product."   Following Lynas' lead, Kahn wants us to believe that genes exchanged between different plants is common in nature and therefore manipulating genes between species with genetic engineering tools, such as CRISPR, should not worry us. Yes, plants have acquired genes from other organisms in the past – the far distant past – according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. However, it is so exceedingly rare that these should be regarded as anomalies without any correlation whatsoever to the millions of different genes available to bio-engineer new plant organisms. This has been one of Lynas' pet arguments on his bully pulpit since turning traitor on his former Greenpeace activists and joining Monsanto's legions.    It may also be noted that Jennifer Kahn is an active participant in CRISPRcon, a forum dedicated to “the future of CRISPR and gene editing technology applications in agriculture, health, conservation and more.” Among the organization's supporters are Bayer, the Innovative Genomics Institute, Cornell Alliance for Science, Corteva Agriscience and the United Soybean Board.  A mission noted on its website is expressed in one of its mottos, “The public doesn't trust GMOs. Will it trust CRISPR?” This is a public relations pitch that permeates her Times article.    It is important for independent investigators and researchers to identify and publicize the background of cloaked public relations shills posing as unbiased journalists in mainstream news sources. Kahn's New York Times piece is an example of a propaganda effort without credibility; it is an attempt to disingenuously manipulate the narrative so more Americans will love GMOs. In the wake of the agrichemical industry's efforts to bolster favorable images of GMOs and more recently CRISPR editing technologies, the mainstream media willingly rolls out a red carpet. No equal publishing space is awarded to the scientific critics of genetic engineering who uncover the flaws in the industry's public research. Consequently, journalists such as Mark Lynas and Jennifer Kahn are the norm rather than exception. Today the lesson is clear that money, power and influence sustain the lies and deceit of private industry.  Take on any cause critical of GMOs and agro-chemical agriculture, and Big Ag will come after you. Kahn is seemingly just one of many other journalists the GLP and Cornell Alliance can turn towards to advance genetic engineering's mythologies.    Seven years ago, 70 percent of Americans, according to a Consumer Reports National Research Center survey, did not want genetically modified organisms in their food. In 2018, the Pew Research Center reported that only five percent of Americans said GM foods were better for one's health – which about makes up the number of people who are in one way or another invested in the agrichemical industry. Still over half believe they endanger health. Yet too much has been invested into agro-biotechnology to expect GMOS to disappear at any time. As the public increasingly turns away from genetically modified organisms in their produce, we will expect new volleys of industry propaganda like that penned by Jennifer Kahn to dangle new carrots. For Kahn, one of these rotten carrots is to improve nutritional content. Yet, similar to the Golden Rice, this will need to be proven beyond being an infomercial. We can also expect to hear ever wilder and more irrational claims about how GMO-based agriculture might reduce CO2 greenhouse pollution and save humanity. And we expect much of this PR campaign to be backed by the World Economic Forum's full-throttle Great Reset invasion. In other words, out of desperation to reach global food dominance, the agro-chemical industry backed by western governments will be declaring a full food war against the peoples of the world.  It is time for us to unlearn any illusory attachment we might have to Big Agriculture and learn to loath GMOs.

Here's a snapshot of a few things I talked about… Why People Leave eXp Realty? How Casanova Joined eXp Realty?  Be Open Minded and Take the Meeting  Focusing on Collaboration Over Competition You will Get Out, What you Put In Choose The Right Sponsor or Mentor Plug In to the Training and the Systems Burn the Boats In This Episode You'll Learn: In this episode, Casanova talks about the most common reasons that anyone leaves eXp Realty. Cas says that if you're somebody who you've just joined eXp, and you want to make sure that you're looking out for these things, or if you've been hearing about eXp and you're thinking you might want to join, but you want to know what the cons are, because you're hearing all of the pros, you will find this really helpful. Cas recalls how he was introduced to eXp Realty, while he was working at a large brokerage company. He was not looking to join any other company at that time, but when he was approached by a networking company a year prior, even though he was a real estate guy, he still took the meeting.  He adds that you'll never succeed to where you want to go in life, if you're not open-minded. He always takes the meeting. You have to make sure that you at least get the information because you don't know what you don't know. Things didn't work out in that meeting with them, but a year later, he was approached again, and this time, he decided to join eXp Realty. He adds that the things he has learned over the last three years, have been nothing short of phenomenal. Cas adds that what sets eXp apart and also why most people leave eXp Realty is they are not focused on collaboration over competition. Every single day, we have to be focused on how do we get a little bit better. When Cas came to eXp, it was because he wanted leverage in his life and didn't want to have to continue to be a solopreneur. He didn't know, and wanted to learn how to leverage the resources, the people, the systems. He knew that it was going to take him putting in what he wanted to get out. He was going to have to give up so he could go up to the next level in his business. Cas adds that the second reason of why a lot of people leave eXp is because they don't choose the right sponsor or mentor. He says that you get out of it will be what you put into it. You have to find somebody who aligns with whatever your goals are. Your sponsor should be somebody that you can learn from, and that you can most importantly leverage. Ask yourself, what are your strengths and weaknesses, and then double down on your strengths, and you want to make sure you partner up with somebody who has your weaknesses. The third reason that people leave eXp Realty is because they're not willing to plug in to the training and the systems.  He adds that if you join eXp, if you're already a part of eXp, how can you be all in? You have to burn the boats. Give it all you got, because the last thing of what you want to do is you want to leave, or you want to come over and you had these regrets. Cas adds that the reason why he is not going back to his previous company is because he knows that he has an opportunity that will change, and that's already changing the industry forever. If you were thinking about being a part of one of the fastest growing brokerage models, Cas would love to have a conversation with you, click on the link below to reach out. Key Quotes: “I feel like I have a very good understanding of the good, the bad and the things that we wish could be a little bit better [at eXp]”  “Always take the meeting, right? Something that I learned is the people who get left behind are the people who are closed minded…” “There's nothing worse to being broke than being broken and being stupid, but there's nothing even worse than being broke, being stupid and being ignorant…” “You don't know what you don't know, and you have to stay cutting edge…” “I've not been disappointed by my sponsor, my seventh level, my six level, I've been very fortunate in this company…” “You have to burn the boats.

On The Cloud Pod this week, Matthew Kohn joins the team as a substitute for Jonathan and Peter, who have gone AWOL. Also, Google demonstrates again why its network is superior to the other cloud providers.         A big thanks to this week's sponsors: Foghorn Consulting, which provides full-stack cloud solutions with a focus on strategy, planning and execution for enterprises seeking to take advantage of the transformative capabilities of AWS, Google Cloud and Azure. JumpCloud, which offers a complete platform for identity, access, and device management — no matter where your users and devices are located.  This week's highlights AWS now allows crash-consistent AMIs without requiring a reboot. No more manual processes needed.  Google is building a subsea cable named Firmina.

AWS clearly realized it was behind the other cloud providers on building new regions.  Amazon launches AWS Proton in general availability. There are some super cool improvements that have been done to this. Amazon EC2 now allows you to create crash-consistent Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). This is one of our EC2 wish list items — it's great to tick it off the list. AWS announces per second billing for EC2 Windows Server and SQL Server Instances. It's nice to only be billed for what you actually use.   AWS removes NAT Gateway's dependence on Internet Gateway for private communications. This has been a big annoyance for a while so nice to see it sorted! Google Cloud Platform: Just Figure It Out Google is announcing the general availability of Ubuntu Pro images on Google Cloud. Doesn't make a lot of sense to embrace open source by purchasing an enterprise product. PLAID guest posts on the GCP blog talking about using Anthos Clusters on AWS. This is a really interesting blog post.   Google is announcing a new model for multi-project cloud monitoring.

[00:47:56] His Advice for People Looking to Take Action [00:52:06]   In This Episode, You'll Learn: In this episode, Casanova and Taylor talk about his journey and how Taylor was able to build six, seven, and eight figure businesses.  Growing up, Taylor wanted to be in and work in church. When he achieved it, he didn't like it. For him, building these companies, he didn't grow up as an entrepreneur. He didn't grow up wanting to sell stuff.  Now, with businesses set to make close to nine figures, his journey has been a wild ride. He believes in learning to appreciate yourself and appreciate the game in a way that's not outcome specific or outcome based.  He adds that with time you want to graduate to a space where you were playing the game for the love of the game and the rings are fun. Behind the scenes, you just probably find him showing up to work every day because he's addicted to it, because it's fun. Cas adds that we all had big dreams and big ambitions, and we didn't necessarily know that we were going to have to create the path, but we learned it along our journey. Talking about the first business that Taylor created, he shares that it stemmed off of him helping his wife with some marketing for her hair stylist business. He started with the vision of replacing what he was making a month, while working at a real estate business.  What got me in the game was writing copy freelance. He developed a skillset for salesmanship and paid quite a bit of money at the beginning through mentorship. From 2014 into 2015, his business grew exponentially. Then he met his business partner, and they started the agency that became known as Traffic and Funnels in September of 2015. By January 2016, they had hit six figures. From there, they built the team out, then built sales mentor, then built a real estate company. If he had get started over again, Taylor said that knowing what he knows now, he would still learn copy, but he would probably skip past the whole, doing the copywriting for other people. Taylor became good at copywriting after he purchased the Copy Hour course, where he had to write a direct response sales letter by hand, every day. He adds that there's no other skillset like that, if you have the ability to put together phrasing and persuasion, and do it in a way that's written. One thing that he would change was to write copy for his own business, instead of other people. He further adds that the agency model is going to last, and if you start an agency, you're going to probably have good income for a really long time, if you use your marketing skills for your own business. Taylor was introduced to funnels after he bought the Infusionsoft software. He then branded himself as the Infusionsoft copywriter, and this made him job a whole lot easier. Funnels gave him a higher percentage of success. In hindsight, Taylor says that he was in the flow with where the market was headed, accidentally. It wasn't strategic.  When he stared emailing sales letters, that got his percentage up.  Nowadays, they don't rely heavily on emails, and use everything. They use email now as more of a facilitation tool, not as direct response anymore. For somebody who's just getting started, it depends on the risk profile of that person and their financial standing, when it comes to the first hire. Their process of launching new businesses starts with the research.  He adds that the amount of marketing finesse we have to demonstrate in Traffic and Funnels is really high. The first thing to do is that you want to not only find the pain point, but you also want to find a pain point that's not already drenched in other solutions. To figure out if something is worth your time, you can do a competitor research and do a competitor analysis. Sometimes there are solutions, but the solutions aren't good. Like for instance, people aren't selling two-steps on Twitter, the way they are on Facebook.  Two-steps is one of the easiest ways to pick up momentum because people are going to read that post and they would want it. So, you validate that attention, get a little bit of momentum, and then take it to a messenger combo, take it to a sales call. Taylor adds that they gave up on webinars because they liked the idea of building a customer list, more than we liked the idea of building a lead list.  Talking about low ticket vs. high ticket market, Taylor recommends sticking to the high ticket. He says that it a whole lot easier and it's a lot faster. He adds that theoretically and practically, it is a little bit easier to get started on the high-ticket side, but some people don't want it. They'd rather have a lower touch and a little bit of distance between them and the customer, and that's fine too. As of now, they sell information via products. They don't have any like typical e-commerce slash retail type of brands, but this partner Chris wants to get into that. They've had a great partnership, and maintained healthy communication through the years. Taylor adds that Chris brings things that he doesn't have in terms of strategy and launching things fast. And he has things that Chris doesn't have, and so it's just been a good partnership and they're just kind of open-handed with it. Although he started mentorship heavy, Taylor doesn't work with mentors anymore, other than a mindset coach. It's important for him, especially over the next few years to find people that he could just completely and totally empower to call him out. Talking about their real estate endeavors, they not in hedge fund territory yet, but they're quickly approaching the REIT territory and putting together syndication deals. Taylor says that he wants to be learning new things. he wants to be making sure he is in new zones because that's what keeps him excited, that's what keeps him fresh. Lately, his challenge has been to learn one thing to mastery than backfill himself. Taylor doesn't consider himself a generalist and the skillset for him would be people and mobilization. The world is also changing the way that specialization works. There's riches in specializing in certain problems and solutions. Taylor likes to read a lot and when he has a book or is reading about a new skillset or about a person, consuming some form of information, it is in perfect alignment with who he wants to be and his identity. When he is ready a book, he likes to highlight the important stuff, and later, compile them on Evernote. He further adds that it's not necessarily deciding which things to implement versus which things to not. It's more so deciding when to implement, because you want to implement all of it.  Talking about the ten books that he reads, he said that the material inside of these books and these book notes is something that he knows that he's going to be working out of his system. And he got to get them back in. Taylor further adds that constraints thinking, as mentioned in The Road Less Stupid, had he learned about it few years earlier, they could be even further ahead. On the subject of the voice of self-doubt in the head, Taylor said that it is a part of the process of being human.  There's nothing wrong with you for having that voice. The response you have to that voice will determine whether you stay where you are or whether you ultimately transcend it to the next level.

I don't think there's any skill set that's quite like it…”–Taylor Welch. “If you can put words down on paper that makes people give you money. I mean, dude you're set for life…”–Taylor Welch. “I recognized very early, I have to nail a sales letter, like 95% of the way for it to work. But if I can get them onto an email list, I don't have to nail every email; I just have to nail one out of 20…”–Taylor Welch. “[Email is] just one milestone on the customer's journey to get them onto a phone call or to get them into a Facebook group, or, you know what I mean, like it's facilitating the next step…”–Taylor Welch. “It's all research for the first part. And it's identifying the problem in the market that people are either underserved or not served at all, or there's not a dominant player in the market…”–Taylor Welch. “The two step, it's just acting as the facilitator for the next step…”–Taylor Welch. “For a lead it's somebody who just gives their email potentially but for a customer, it's somebody who gets on the phone with you…” –Casanova Brooks. “The higher you go, the easier it gets because they're typically a higher caliber type of clientele…”–Taylor Welch. “I have a lot of great relationships who are, you know, I would be considered poor to them. And those are always really nice because I'm like, oh man, there's a long way for us to go. We're not there yet…”–Taylor Welch. “Those are the trendsetters. Those are the truth tellers. Those are the market definers. And that's who I think all of us should one day, aspire to be….”–Taylor Welch. “If you're going to compete with a specialist and you're a generalist. You're probably gonna lose to this specialist…”–Taylor Welch. “You can specialize in that one skill set, but just make sure that it's something that's broad enough that we crossover to multiple industries…”–Casanova Brooks. “Some people just use Facebook instead of Evernote, and that's where they get all messed up is Facebook's not designed to help you. It's designed to addict you…”–Taylor Welch. “Constraints is like, you know, you basically take the problems you're trying to solve in your life.

Here's a snapshot of a few things we talked about… My Wife Has the Hardest Job. A Wealthy Family Must Come from Me.  The Color of Socks Can Tell a Lot About a Person. Your Brand Will Live Forever. You Don't Get a Second Chance to Make a First Impression. Be the Lord of Your Land. Not the ‘Why', but the ‘What' and the “How'. In This Episode, You'll Learn: In this episode, Casanova and Steve from www.sharppodcast.com talk about Cas' childhood, his family, how that inspired his journey, and how he got started in the Real Estate business. Cas believes that his wife has the hardest job, taking care of their two kids and managing a daycare center. Steve adds that being a dad is quite empowering. When you become a dad, you just start learning again. Cas recalls growing up without a father and how that shaped his mindset towards his children and family. He added that he started believing that if he didn't come from a loving father, a loving father must come from him.  Steve thinks that the color of socks that one has on can tell you a lot about a person. If one has uniform colors, it suggests that attention to detail is high on their agenda. Cas adds that he is pretty uninformed, it is black or white, but as for the company colors, they are blue and orange.  Cas understood early on that his brand was the thing that's going to live on, no matter what. So, at the end of the day, it was all about how does he look, how to articulate himself? He always wanted to make sure that he could stand out from the crowd. One of the things that Cas learned early on was that you do not get a second chance to make a first impression. 95% of the time you can judge a man by two things. Number one is their timepiece, and number two is the shoes that they have on their feet. It doesn't mean you have to put on extravagant or expensive suits, shoes or watches, it could just be a nice, fitting shirt. It tells a lot about that person's character and what they feel about themselves. Growing up with the lack of financial resources, it always gave him the inspiration that one day he wanted it. When he was exposed to network marketing, it laid the foundations of becoming a millionaire or becoming a person that had the confidence in his abilities to make whatever dream that he had, become a reality. After reading books like Millionaire Fastlane and Rich Dad, Poor Dad, he realized that he was trading his time for money. So, he started to figure out what are the ways that he did not have to trade time for money.  Cas' journey into the world of real estate started after he came across a YouTube video and a guy had said, ‘you got to find a way to be the Lord of your land', because he or she who owns the land, makes the rules. Although he didn't have any resources to get started as a realtor, he knew the basics of building relationships and serving other people. He knew that real estate was going to build his foundation, but real estate was never his ‘why', it was just his ‘what' and his ‘how'. To figure out what his ‘why' was, he started Dream Nation, because at the end of the day, everything starts with a dream. He wanted to help other dreamers escape the 40-40-40 cycle and live their dreams.  Key Quotes: “There's something quite empowering about being a dad and finding your way with that…” –Steve O'Neil. “If I didn't come from a wealthy family, that wealthy family must come from me…”– Casanova Brooks. “Joy wouldn't feel so good, if it wasn't for a little bit of adversity…”– Casanova Brooks. “If someone is successful, it's because they're confident and they get their confidence because of the way that they show up every single day and the way that they show up every single day has a little bit to do with their parents…”– Casanova Brooks. “I don't believe that any dream is smaller or bigger than anyone else's dream, and so I tried to create something that was bigger than me, which is Dream Nation, and the goal is to inspire everyone to live a life by their design, no matter what their dream is…”– Casanova Brooks.
