Guest Jorge Motoshige felt as though college surrounded him with an interesting, diverse group of people that helped him land in a number of different places with some comfort, because he didn't have any concerns about being able to get out there and meeting new people of all kinds of different backgrounds. Get out there, he did, becoming employee number 113 at Yahoo upon graduation. After a number of years in producing there, he timed his departure right before the first dotcom bust and left the company in 2000. Figuring out where to go and who to be next proved more difficult and so he took the opportunity to travel. Frequent visits to New York made him realize that this California boy could spend two or three years there. Before he knew it, he'd been there for at least 15.Though he joked in college that he doubt he'd live past 40, fate proved otherwise, though his bachelor days were numbered. Through mutual friends, he met Elisabeth, an opera singer from Greece, and ended up married in 2019. The couple lives an international lifestyle with Elisabeth basing her career out of Berlin and Jorge doing likewise from New York.In this episode, find out from Jorge how never staying still lets you consistently amass new experiences …on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley.About This Episode's Guest//Jorge Motoshige, international man of mystery, splits his time between New York and Berlin and the many destinations of his professional and personal travels.

Now to this week's episode, we hope you enjoy it! — Hey everyone! My name is Peter Shankman. You are listening to Faster Than Normal. We have taken a hiatus. This is our first episode back in about a month and a half. It was a good holiday season. It was fun COVID times now. And, but we're back it's it's early January. Daughter's homeschooling again. And we are thrilled to be back with all new episodes. We have some incredible episodes that we've already recorded coming down the pike. You're going to be very, very happy with what you hear in the new year. So I hope you guys are safe and well and vaccinated. And I want to introduce Bill. So Bill reached out to me after his daughter was diagnosed with ADHD in 2016 and he was based in Singapore and sure enough, I happened to be in Singapore right around that time for keynote. We weren't able to get together, but we did stay in touch and I found Bill's backstory and bio very, very fascinating. So I want to share it with you guys. Bill was born in Schenectady, New York and raised in New Jersey. He attended high school and Dartmouth. He joined a company in 84 called Drexel Burnham. I don't know if you, for those who are young and don't remember Drexel Burnham, Drexel Burnham was, um, one of the old school financial firms-the, I think the joke around that, around early nineties when things started to go south was that if Merrill Lynch and Drexel Burnham merge, would we call the company Lynch and Burnham. But I remember Drexel from the day and he worked in various and Bill worked in various areas there, including the international order desk, as well as many of the different pits, including all the metals softs and oil pits, and if you watched Wall Street And you see how crazy they get when they're trying to sell a stock or buys or whatever. Imagine that. 400 times the speed. He wound up eventually in the oil desk, he wound up in Singapore. He's got a bunch of stuff. He since reinvented his life, he started a second career along with his wife as real estate investors, um, in Nantucket and it Hanover New Hampshire, but keep in mind, he's ADHD. Because of that, obviously he couldn't just do one thing. He's an Eagle scout. He's a PATO certified diver. He's completed a NOLS course. He has extensive open water sailing experiences. He's competed multiple voyages in the Caribbean and Pacific. He's also chair of planned giving to the class of 84 Dartmouth, the VP of association, giving care to Dartmouth in addition to many other volunteer roles. Bill welcome. And you sound as crazy as I am. So it's great to have you. Thank you, Peter. It's funny. My wife jokes that I over-schedule myself. And I always say, well, I just schedule to my maximum ability, and then you come to me with extra things to do and that's when I get over tasked. Exactly. And I'm sure that goes very well. I'm sure that goes over very well when, when you explained to her that. One of the things that I find fascinating; you work the trading desks, right. And I mean, you started, uh, you know, after you left Drexel, you, you, you joined Westport Petroleum and then the second point trading in London offices, you started a clean product trading desk there, especially as in the international arbitrage of jet fuel gas, oil barrier, spades, gasoline, and alkalines basically, you were doing stuff where if you fell off.. we're talking millions or billions of dollars wiped off the balance sheet in half a second. So what I'd love to know, and I'm just gonna dive right into this. How were you able to, I mean, I know hyper-focus is a thing for people like us, but that would scare the living crap out of me. How were you able to hyper-focus that well? Um, it's funny. I would almost put it in the, oh, I w I would reverse that, that when I first got into commodities, everything suddenly made sense. It was like a, the Rubik's cube pieces fell into place. The what, what to some people looks like total chaos to me was order. And the sitting on a desk with a bunch of phones ringing South Paulo, Brazil would call Hong Kong would call and you have to place orders and all the various pits. It was easy to me. In fact, that was fun. It was like a big game. So I always feel like I never worked a day in my life. All I did was basically play games. The games happened to be commodities and, but it was making order out of chaos. That just seemed. Um, soothing in a way. And so what from the outside looked stressful to me seemed like fun, like a big game, really. And then going down to the floor, the, you know, I was kind of in a commodity training program. So I worked in every pit learned about every, you know, orange juice, cotton. Someone was out, you'd have to go over there, then go to the gold pit. And you know, all that chaos was, it was just a big game. Uh, to me at least, or it seemed like a big game and the game was to make as much money as possible. Um, at that point though, it was just clerking. I wasn't trading and, um, it, you know, but I basically found my home and I, and I think in fact, if you go to a lot of, you know, wall street companies or commodity companies, and you look at the trading desk, you'll see a bunch of guys with ADHD. Uh, a couple of sociopaths, maybe a psychopath and a, and a bunch of engineers kind of keeping it all together, but there's a huge concentration of people with ADHD in commodities. And, um, it's, it's not a given, but you, you could see them. It's just clear as daylight. So it's one of those places where the faster brain really thrives? Oh, absolutely. In fact, it's funny a couple of years ago, um, I have a, uh, former colleague, he went to Duke really, really played lacrosse there. Um, and I was joking. I asked him about ADHD and he looked at me like, I'm an idiot. Like, of course I am, I mean, that, that's how accepted and common it was. Um, yeah. And so there's a lot of people that, that seem to gravitate, um, to that type of chaos and that, and find it, find harmony there. I'm curious as to, how do I phrase this? When, when I get into a zone, when I'm doing something that I truly love, let's say I'm on a plane to Asia and I'm writing, I'm writing a book or something like that. I get into a zone and I just sort of have. I guess the best way to put it is this quiet hum in my head, that is my call it my hyper-focus hum. Right? And it just, no matter what chaos is happening, no matter whether there's turbulence or whether the flight attendants come over with food or whatever, the case may be, two people are fighting behind me; it doesn't matter that hum is keeping me Zen and focused. Did you find that the same thing? Was there something about the pits that gave you that same sort of hum for lack of a better word? Well, I would, I get what you're saying, but it's funny in more realistic terms when I was in Singapore, I'd be on the desk in a conversation, looking at a spreadsheet, you know, maybe calculating what something's worth, but on the phone at the same time, talking to someone I'd look up. And it was, you know, 10:20, and there was no one else in the desk because we had a meeting scheduled at 10. I would not even notice everyone could leave the room, I'd be there. And then I w- but it didn't just happen once, you know, it would happen over and over and over again. And I, I had to really work hard. To, to get out of that. Hyper-focus but I know exactly what you mean. Well, what it's, here's an interesting question. What did you do? What did you, how did you train yourself? Did you involve other people? Did you say, Hey, when you're going into a meeting, you know, reach out to me, what did you do to get people into that? To, to, to, to get yourself, you know, helping with that? Well, I can tell you, it is funny. Like when I was on the phone, if I was sitting at my desk, I'd get bored. Um, so I would stand up and pace around the office in giant circles. Um, just to keep my brain focused. That's just how my head works. If I'm sitting at a desk and not doing something else at the same time, I kind of get bored. So I, um, so I came up with little tools okay. Based around the office and I would have a more meaningful conversation. In order to make the meeting, I would just schedule reminders that, I schedule reminders for everything. I'm a big list kind of guy. Um, I have lists for everything and those lists I create helped me, um, you know, keep order. Yep. Tell me about your personal life. So, so your, uh, ADHD is obviously very, very beneficial for you in this regard. Tell me about how it affects your personal life and what, what sort of changes or, uh, different things you've had to do to get there. Well, the it's hard to go there without telling kind of the backstory of my kind of discovery. And it has a lot to do with our daughter, who, um, at a certain age, in fact, this is what gets me angry about ADHD. And this is one of the reasons why I reached out; because her journey and my journey, um, it's a very typical situation I think. She was in seventh grade. Um, and we got called to school. This is UWC in Singapore. Um, and to give an idea, the level of understanding of ADHD in Singapore is there are about 25 to 40 years behind where we are here. I actually interviewed this doctor, on the podcast, a psychologist, the podcast from Singapore and she said, exactly the same thing. Oh, yeah. It's like stepping back in time, in fact, so, okay. So w we go into, um, we find out that she's struggling in math, she's just above the red line. They wanted to put her in learning support. And I fought back the vehemently because I believe that once she got into learning support, she would never get out. It's like a black hole and. So we had her tested independently and guess what? She's very, her processing speed was off the charts. Um, in fact, at one point we had her tested again for something else. And the, the woman that did the test said, I've been doing this for 20 years. I probably test 15 to 20 kids a year and she's the first one that has ever completed one of the sections. And so, and we started, so my wife and I, we looked back and it at her school in second grade, they said, we think maybe she has an eyesight issue. She needs glasses. So we had her eyesight tested, we're scratching our heads. And, um, anyway, fast forward, she, um, she started on Conserta Yup. That's my drug of choice also. Right. Okay. Then we read, um, uh, uh, uh, Dr. Ned Hallowell's book, um, Delivered from Distraction. Yes. And we started listening to podcasts and everything kind of fell in place. In fact, I forgot one key part of this. Is that, um, we had her tested and at the same time, my wife was reading the diagnosis of someone else that had ADHD and she's reading it and she's like, oh my God, that's our daughter. And that's when everything kind of fell in place. So it was kind of a combination of both the testing and, um, Yeah. And the reading diagnosis of someone else with ADHD. So at that point, I began to look back at my life and realize, huh, I like chaos at my own little Rubik's cube. All the pieces fell into place and I began to realize all the things I've been doing to cope. You know, I get up, I run in the morning in central park, when I lived in New York, I'd have coffee, I'd do all these different things. I needed to work out just to be able to see straight and, um, You know, so I began to see all the commonalities of the, um, Of the things I did to deal with it, and I guess it, um, and then I looked back at my career that, you know, for me, I liked playing games. I like eating good food. I like drinking good booze and commodity trading kind of combines all those things that I enjoy. And so, like I said, I never felt like I worked a day in my life. It was all kind of a big fun game to me. Um, so it was kind of perfect for someone who has ADHD. Let me ask the question. Um, it's it's you're you touched an interesting point. It's one of those industries where, you know, you work hard, but you also play hard. Right? I mean, I know just, just my, uh, my, um, uh, financial adviser, right. Once a year, he takes me out to dinner. He shows me how my portfolio is doing and, and, you know, five drinks in right? He doesn't..you know it's not that we're going out to drink- you treat the client well, right, in any, in any sort of financial industry. So did that affect you at all? Did you, I mean, I know that I have a very precarious relationship with alcohol and a lot of that is connected to ADHD. ADHD and addiction are very close to each other. Did you have a similar situation? Yes, that would be, you know, I probably, um, well.. It depends in New York one, doesn't really go out to lunch really. Um, in Singapore, in, in London, it's kind of a different story. So, and it is very much, um, well, I should say, if you look at say the, the world of oil trading, it's a giant fraternity and it's a giant fraternity, um, of people that know each other and entertainment plays a big role in, in that industry. So you work very hard all day and you go out and celebrate at night. Um, and yeah, it, um, it plays a big role. Yeah. It never, it never affected you the point where you're like, okay, I probably shouldn't do this or I should cut back on anything that that? Um, well, for me, I can tell you, it was very clear when I was in my early fifties, I began to feel, um, diminished resilience. And that was really more a function of the stress, um, that, you know, without going too deep into it, sometimes when you have huge positions, um, you walk in and you ready to have a heart attack. And for the first up until my early fifties, I suppose if I had a superpower, it was the ability to endure enormous amounts of stress without thinking about it and I began to feel that that resilience diminishing, and that was my body speaking to me and saying, Hey, it's time to slow down. So for me, the signal was more about stress and less about other things. Um, I also, as I said, always would get up and need to workout first thing in the morning or at lunch. And I think that. Um, I think that the French have an expression to drink enough water with your wine and need enough salad with your foie gras, you know, working out, um, was always a way to balance out that aspect of you know, of my life. That's very smart. So tell us last steps. What do you wish you'd known back then that you know now about your ADHD and about sort of the way you've lived? That's a good question. Um, what do I wish I'd known before? Well, I think the, maybe I would turn that around a little bit and, and, and say that, um, I've heard that expression; it's like a Maserati engine with a bicycle brakes. And I think the understanding that ADHD can be a superpower was a transformational concept for me and for my daughter, but maybe more for young people. And I recently have had a friend whose son was diagnosed with ADHD and from the questionings, the line of questions he was asking, and from the tone in his voice, I got this sense that he'd been given some negative messaging from the school. And I thought, how tragic that was that, you know, it can be. And I, and I understand there's the, you know, there's a full spectrum for me. And I think in our family, a high processing speed is, is a part of it with less of the maybe other hyperactive issues. Right. And so we're able to harness that superpower and I get that it it's diff you know, everyone's a little bit different and that there are more difficult challenges that some people face but I think the understanding that, um, ADHD really can be a superpower is such a powerful message. And in understanding that figuring out how to channel that energy into the right direction, I think I was simply lucky to find something where I was able to channel it appropriately. Um, I don't think my knowing that I had ADHD would have helped me find.. I kind of stumbled into something that I loved And, but I think that, um, I think the, you know, to understand that people with ADHD have a superpower and it's important to try to find things in life well, ways to, to live with it, but also ways to channel it. Um, I think is the, is a message that, you know, I'd like to share because for me it was, it was a superpower. Yeah, I love that. What a great way to when it end., um, Bill, I really appreciate that. How can people find more about your reach out to you if they have any questions or if they want to share, if you're willing to give us some info on how to get to you? I'm on LinkedIn. That's probably the easiest. Sounds good. And we'll put that, we'll put that link in the, in the show notes. Uh, it's under William Paul Hamlin.

Guest Jennie Tranter decided to try on a new persona in college and be more outgoing and social than she'd been previously. Academically, having desired to be a doctor, she loaded on the science classes. She took a religion course to fill a distributive requirement and was completely taken by the idea that, unlike in science, there may not be just one right answer and she may have to become more comfortable with uncertainty. She became a religion major and, after a study abroad program in Europe, doubled down on her German studies with her eye on getting back to Europe after graduation. Despite a heap of uncertainty, she ultimately found a way to do that, but kept coming back to the U.S. and trying new things.Eventually, she leaned into the international lifestyle and worked at the intersection of finance and international relations—where she thought she'd be happy. While elements of her life were fulfilling, she sought something different and ultimately worked with a coach to bring more clarity to things. She uncovered that the values that she prized were beauty—particularly being out and about in nature—and excellence. When she took some time to figure out what that meant, she took on a volunteer opportunity that made her remember her early desires to help people. Combining the elements she knew were vital to her transformation, she began coaching others in liminal circumstances and pursued a career in psychotherapy.In this episode, find out from Jennie how uncovering the many elements of who you are and grounding decisions in values can lead you to where you need to be…on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestJennie Tranter has an established private practice, supporting individuals' journeys of transition and transformation after having navigated many of her own. She is a registered associate marriage and family therapist, a registered associate professional clinical counselor in the state of California, and an accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy therapist, as well as an internationally certified Integral coach.

Cameron Warner Jones is the kind of person that, once you've heard of him, you just want to get to know him. Imagine a person that gets his start in the dark halls of Dartmouth's Computer Music halls, designs and implements the complex musical system used by everyone at the time, then carries on the work through the years. You know there are stories there, right? Especially when the ‘musical system' at hand is the Synclavier Digital Music System, which was used by everyone from Laurie Anderson through Frank Zappa. This system influenced everything that came later, and much of it was driven by Cameron's efforts. In this discussion, we cover his background, his work at Dartmouth, his work with Sydney Alonso on the development of NED (New England Digital) as a business, and the Synclavier as a product.

Jarvis Houston, the Organizing and Political Director of Sister District. Jarvis Houston has ten years of advocacy and campaign experience at the local, state, and national levels. He is a lifelong organizer and a proud graduate of Howard University. With armchair analysts portending a dark upcoming decade for Democrats, Jarvis speaks to a positive outcome of the past elections: the shift in political representation across a country and how the political climate is changing for people of color. Election night saw historic wins down ballot for candidates of color: Michelle Wu in Boston, Aftab Pureval in Cincinnati, Eric Adams in New York, and more! These victories are key to progress, but as America continues to shift demographically and Democrats stare down the barrel of the midterms it's clear: demographics do not dictate electoral wins. Jarvis discusses how recent victories are a major step forward for inclusive representation, and explain what it's going to take for Democrats to mobilize voters—demographics aside—ahead of midterms.Nancy: Website, Instagram, Twitter Welcome to Progressive Opinions of Color (POC), a podcast that creates space for people of color in conversations about economics, politics, and culture.

On the 73rd episode of the GreatBase Tennis podcast, Steve Smith interviews Raleigh Grossbaum who is the assistant men's tennis coach at Dartmouth. Raleigh earned his opportunity to coach at one of the country's most highly acclaimed colleges by simply paying his dues. We would like to think that we put Raleigh through the School of Hard Knocks and, along with his other diversified experiences, have been part of developing a young coach who can make a difference in a player's game and have a major role in building a first-class college tennis program.
Guest Mary Romano was sure she wanted to be a doctor. But she really loved Latin and Greek and didn't want to give up everything for her medical dreams too soon. So she majored in the classics and stayed on the pre-Med track. When others were getting into medical schools—or letting their med school dreams go, Mary did neither. Without a place to land, she went back home and regrouped.She ultimately went to medical school in the Caribbean, an experience in itself. And returned to the U.S. for her clinicals and hospital placements in the U.S. Having known she wanted to go into pediatrics, she honed in on adolescent medicine as the place she would be most happy, seeing patients but also educating them daily. As her career advanced, the teaching roles became more diverse for a wider set of audiences—from med students to young doctors to policy makers. This is all the more true now that she has built a practice and center for transgender and gender diverse adolescents and children. From educating the patients and their parents to making sure legislators understand the science and lives behind their bills, she is always busy.In this episode, find out from Mary how finding a way around barriers and removing them for others plays on the same skills and personality…on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestMary Romano, MD, MPH, is Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she helped to cofound a center serving transgender and gender diverse children and adolescents. In addition to seeing patients through clinical service, she also provides education and training to gender diverse youth, their parents, and the providers that serve them. She lives in Nashville with her husband and their two children.

Think about what 2022 could look like for you. What does it take for you to make 2022 amazing? Imagine using your capabilities and resources as an adult and pairing those up with the confidence, resilience, curiosity, and energy you had as a kid. During a coaching engagement, a client asked me something that illustrates how we might be keeping ourselves stuck by relying purely on thinking like an adult. In this episode, I'm doing a 2021 wrap-up and sharing with you some of my upcoming guests in 2022. Specifically, I'm giving you a sneak preview of next week's episode which features a Sesame Street puppeteer who offers some words of wisdom about reconnecting with our inner child being the key to harnessing our imagination. There's no better way to approach 2022 than with oodles of imagination for you to dream bigger. My goal for this podcast is to bring you world-class thought leaders across disciplines from around the world who courageously and creatively went after their curiosities until they felt ready. Hopefully, you have drawn some inspiration from this podcast over the past year. I'm passionate about helping you believe in yourself enough – to stand up for yourself, to invest in yourself, and to show up as yourself to the world. My role is to scour the earth for those who could inspire us all to be our authentic selves. If you want to feel better, expansive, and unlimited like your inner child would want you to feel, I would love to see you join my free master class by simply going to www.melissallarena.com/limits. If you could combine your kid-like qualities and your capabilities and resources as an adult, then you will realize how limitless your potential is. It takes rethinking and reimagining what's possible for you and I want you to have everything you need so you can enter 2022 with eyes wide open! Highlights Creativity: Most successful people have a playful spirit. They're creative and curious and they have this sense of hope that we can all stand to learn from. Impact: Do you want to continue following the expectations of what you should be doing as a responsible, practical adult or follow what you really want to do as a human and make a huge impact on this world? Limitations: Before you start thinking about your 2022 resolutions and goals, you need to know what you're up against. What's the traditional thinking around what's possible for you and what's unavailable to you? Dreams: Many individuals have multiple degrees and so many successes, or they may have some big brands on their resumes, but they don't have the energy to apply their effort towards their dreams. Insecurities: People who look like they are totally put together can absolutely also feel like they either don't belong, or they don't have a right to do whatever it is that they want to accomplish. Reconnection: Know what you've been taught about what it's like to be an adult and what people expect of you that you may not agree with. Then tap into reconnecting with your inner child, which you can do almost on-demand, to help you get out of the rut. Courage: A lot of our beliefs are worth getting rid of in 2022. Don't be afraid to swap them, question them, or maybe introduce brand new ways of thinking and rehearsing them so that this way your actions don't feel so hard in 2022. Awareness: Be fully present, pouring your heart, your soul, and everything into any activity in which you are doing in the present moment. Clarity: Imagine going to a party and not feeling bad or awkward about deciding not to eat something the host made because you just want to love yourself by losing some weight. There are a lot of incongruencies between what you want in 2022 and what you think you should go for or be grateful for. Therefore, having clarity is essential. Momentum: Our inner child often gives us a sense of what we really want. And once you're able to break free from your limitations and reconnect with your inner child, you can move so fast. Curiosity: Kids don't have the burden of some past trauma. They have just this free and clear approach to what they want. And so, there are a lot of things that we can learn from them. Ageless: Once you are happier, everyone else around you will be happier. Having the spirit of a child or reconnecting with your inner child is ageless.

Guest Erika Meitner was raised in a household where reformed Judaism revolved around justice and social action. As a first-generation American, her immigrant parents expected her to go into a medical career or something established. Raised with an eye toward social justice and a voice to say something about it, though, she was drawn to both the arts—particularly creative writing—and religious studies in college and spoke up for women's rights and other issues. Upon receiving a fellowship to study in Jerusalem after graduation, she studied Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism, and biblical and literary translation and considered rabbinical school.To pay off her undergraduate loans, however, she worked as a consultant during the run-up to Y2K. When she realized she was spending all of her spare time reading, she knew that wasn't the life for her and went briefly into teaching middle school. The call to both religious studies and creative writing were strong, though, and she applied for master's programs in each. Just as she was readying herself to return to Israel, she got off the wait list at UVa's creative writing MFA program.Knowing the road to established poet and academic would take some time, she kept a strong of Plan Bs going—from writing residencies and another master's degree in Jewish studies to summer teaching stints and management consulting projects. These and other experiences that relied on her ability to solve problems through her interpersonal communication skills only made her writing richer.In this episode, find out from Erika how answering the really big questions of our time requires interpersonal skills developed over a lifetime.…on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestErika Meitner is a poet, a parent, and a teaching artist in the academy, currently at Virginia Tech where she is Professor of English in the creative writing programs.

You're listening to the Westerly Sun's podcast, where we talk about news, the best local events, new job postings, obituaries, and more. First, a bit of Rhode Island trivia. Today's trivia is brought to you by Perennial. Perennial's new plant-based drink “Daily Gut & Brain” is a blend of easily digestible nutrients crafted for gut and brain health. A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that Rhode Island native, Bobby Sewall, pro football wide receiver. He played college football at Brown University and was recognized as one of the best athletes in Ivy League Football history. Sewall scored more points than any Ivy League player during his tenure at Brown. As a sophomore against Dartmouth, he tallied 18 catches, 15 rushes, 4 touchdowns, and threw a 48-yard touchdown pass. It was the best individual performance in the history of the Ancient Eight. The 18 catches in one game bested the entire nation (at all levels) that season. He played professionally for the Tennessee Titans, the Jacksonvilee Sharks, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, we turn our feature story…. If there is one service that has grown ever more important in helping meet the town's food insecurity concerns over the past five years, it's the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center's food pantry. When the shelves are full of recently donated or purchased inventory, the center bustles like a small town grocer on a Friday morning, with staffers packing up food for residents in need and supplying parents with supplemental weekend food for their children as part of the PNC's backpack program. Down the hall, clients are able to take advantage of a household goods “store” that provides health and beauty products, jackets, bathroom essentials and other similar products. The variety of options and filled-to-the-brim shelves tell two different stories. The first is that “feel-good, holiday classic” of community members giving back — the other, a less warm-and-fuzzy tale of the growing need for assistance. PNC Executive Director Susan Sedensky said: “When I started as executive director, in 2017, people who used our services seemed to be ‘hidden.' Our region is geographically so beautiful, and many neighborhoods are wealthy, and as a result, most people seemed unaware that there were people living in their own community who were food insecure”. She continued: “Since COVID, the general public seems to be more aware that local hunger exists. People seem to realize that kids, many who go to school with their own kids, may be food insecure and are in need of food for the weekend when school meals are not available.” For clients of the PNC, efforts over the past five years have led to ever-expanding opportunities. When Sedensky took over, those who received assistance were able to come just once per month. That expanded to twice per month, and the backpack program was introduced prior to the pandemic. Then the public health emergency forced a significant change in the center's operations when community needs skyrocketed and state regulations forced the PNC, as it did so many other organizations, to close their building over safety. To keep the food pantry available to residents, it also meant moving forward without volunteers. The PNC had previously relied heavily on retirees who had the time to help but shifted immediately to hiring paid staff and providing curbside assistance so that services remained available. Those staff members are and will continue to be an important part of operations moving forward, Sedensky said. Once vaccinations were available, she said the center also saw a rise in volunteers from a new group of residents who became aware of the need as a result of the pandemic and their own experiences. More importantly, she said, business owners and residents continued to provide generous donations to meet the growing needs. “It just resonated with people. The pandemic made them feel, and in some cases even see first-hand, that this could be anyone.” Stay up to date on this story and more at westerlysun.com Today we're remembering the life of James Wilgis. He was the husband of Carmela Wilgis who predeceased him in 2020. Born in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, he devoted his life to serving in the US Navy as a submariner, including overseas during the Vietnam War, later retiring as an Electricians Mate Master Chief Petty Officer. Jim then graduated from URI and worked at the Underwater Sound Lab until retiring. He was a life member of the Westerly Yacht Club, and also a member of the U.S. Power Squadron earning a full certificate. Fishing and boating were his passions, but he loved to spend time with his grand and great-grandchildren at family gatherings. He is survived by his two step children, two grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate Jim's life. That's it for today, we'll be back next time with more! Also, remember to check out our sponsor Perennial, Daily Gut & Brain, available at the CVS on Main St. in Wakefield!

On December 21st, just days before Christmas, news alerts began spreading about a large police presence and a lock down at a Halifax children's hospital. When Halifax regional police shared a press release explaining the lockdown the city fell to it's knees. There was a shooting on Windmill Rd in Dartmouth. A young boy was injured in the shooting, transported to the IWK Children's Hospital, but they were unable to save his life. Only four days before christmas. The press release didn't share much more than that, no age or name or details, so of course rumours began to swirl. When additional information was revealed it was via a Halifax regional police press conference, and it ends with an appeal to the public. In this episode of Nighttime, I'm going to share portions of the Halifax Regional police's press conference related to the murder of 8 Year old Lee Marion Cain Links: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/halifax-police-shooting-update-young-boy-1.6295097 Credits: Musical Theme - Noir Tokyo by Monty Datta Provide feedback and comments on the episode: nighttimepodcast.com/contact Nighttime Links: Premium Feed: https://www.patreon.com/nighttimepodcast Website: https://www.nighttimepodcast.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/NightTimePod Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NightTimePod Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nighttimepod Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/nighttimepod Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Nighttimepodcast See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Being a mom to three little boys, I could have inherited this notion of delivering on a perfect Christmas experience – from the hot cocoa and the annual outing to seeing the best neighborhood Christmas decorations. Then I realized that perfection was the worst possible ambition I could ever have in my own life. No matter how hard you try to deliver perfection, there would always be an imperfect Christmas table setting for someone seated at the table, or an imperfect Christmas Eve menu for someone who disliked my brown rice, Latin-dish alternatives. And there's always going to be an imperfect Christmas party outfit for a party guest. There's always been a difference in how we define the perfect Christmas. Yet, we have this notion of striving for perfection when we know there's no one universal definition for perfection. So much time and effort go into ensuring that our kids have the perfect Christmas, maybe it's a Christmas that we never had. This idea of perfection that we show our kids is stressing out a lot of moms that it has become a huge limitation for us. Now, what if you just focused on doing the best you could, instead of striving for a perfect Christmas? My intention for this week's episode is to invite you to let go of any need to deliver a perfect Christmas and just do the best you can. We're also going to talk about how that might even be the key to being present with your family. This alternative way of thinking can help you approach 2022 with a greater sense of joy and excitement. Share this episode with someone who has always been striving for perfection, not only during Christmas but even in everything. 2022 is the time for every one of us to be happy. Imagine how happy a kid is on Christmas when they open up their presents. That's the kind of happiness you deserve! Highlights Best: The thought that you're doing the best can feel or seem trivial, but I've seen some moms and dads try to give more than they could and they ended up broken. They were trying to be perfect, and they can't afford to cut themselves some slack. Adulting: Sometimes, forcing ourselves to think as an adult should think can be a great source of frustration and even pain. Striving for perfection is an adult's way of thinking. Innocence: Kids don't start out seeking to be perfect. Kids just do. Kids just are. And kids just do the best they can. Kids don't care about the perfect gift or if they wear an uncoordinated Christmas outfit. We were once kids, and some of us are still kids at heart. Be Child-Like: What if we could feel good about this Christmas season like a kid, not as an adult? Do the best you can and be present rather than focus on getting the perfect presents. Just do the best you can and laugh more! Love: Let go of any guilt for being yourself and take this opportunity to love yourself with all of your might. Let go of this adult desire to have a perfect Christmas and do the best you could and relish in every single second of this holiday season. Perfection: Perfection is the ultimate distraction from what matters. Perfection is one way we have been conditioned to think as adults in this society. And it's ruining so many areas of our lives. And there's a better way to approach this Christmas season and 2022. Limitations: Striving for perfection is just one of the myriad of limiting beliefs that come with being an adult. You need to know the limitations of thinking like an adult if you want to approach 2022 with a fresh set of eyes. Hindrance: Thinking like an adult can get in the way of you being present, especially during the holidays. Thinking like an adult can get in the way of loving ourselves or seeing ourselves in a more loving way. Listen: The kid you once were is still inside of you and you have to listen. You have the right to have hopes and dreams and you've got a shot as long as you're breathing. Planning: It's important to go into your 2022 life planning with your eyes open. It's important to be aware of the limitations, challenges, and drawbacks of thinking as you've always thought. But thinking like an adult is no longer enough. Join the Free Masterclass! Enter 2022 with a hopeful, optimistic, and fresh perspective. Show up to this free one-hour masterclass where we will uncover the five limitations of adult thinking that are kept secret. After a decade of coaching wildly successful adults and interviewing icons on my podcast, I have realized key differences between those who do and those who dream. Join me in this free masterclass on January 4th at 8 pm EST to uncover the 5 adult thinking patterns that no one else is talking about. The only way to circumvent them is to know what they are so that you can experience a different kind of year – one filled with boundless energy, fun, and fulfillment.

Dr. Aaron Kaplan has several startups and many years of cardiology practice under his belt, and he is uniquely positioned to give a physician's perspective on the medical device startup space and how big ideas actually impact the clinic. As a practicing interventional cardiologist and Director of Clinical Research, Heart & Vascular Center, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Kaplan is intimately aware of the challenges facing cardiology today and the needs facing both patients and their care providers. And as an entrepreneur and inventor, he's learned to maximize his role in the startup arena. “The role of the doc is not to design the device, but to define the problem,” Kaplan told Medtech Talk. Kaplan says he brings ideas to the table “that often violate one if not two of Newton's laws”, but he has learned to hand them over to creative engineers and others with diverse perspectives. While, as a physician, he alone answers for all the care decisions that were made for a patient, as an entrepreneur, he instead builds multidisciplinary teams with competencies that are divorced from medicine. One of the biggest differences between the two roles, Kaplan says, is that entrepreneurs must learn to accept failure. In speaking with Geoff Pardo, Kaplan employs a physician's traditional habit of postmortem assessment of one of his previous startups, candidly breaking down the problems in the market approach, the trial strategy, and the leadership structure—valuable lessons for him—and others—to apply to future projects.Dr. Kaplan is a practicing interventional/structural cardiologist and a medical device entrepreneur. Aaron supervises cardiology fellows and lectures regularly at the Tuck School. In addition, he directs the Clinician-MBA Scholars Program at Dartmouth. Prior to Dartmouth, he was Director of Interventional Cardiology at the Palo Alto VA/Stanford University. Dr. Kaplan has authored >75 peer-reviewed papers and serves on the Editorial Board of Cardiac Catheterization & Intervention and J Soc Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions. Aaron is an active entrepreneur who has been on the founding team of a number of companies including Conformal Medical, Tryton Medical, LocalMed and Perclose (acquired by Abbott). Dr. Kaplan is on the Board of Cairn Surgical and was an Entrepreneur-In-Residence at Three Arch Partners. Aaron has authored 60 U.S. Patents and was inducted into the National Academy of Inventors (Class of 2015). He received a BS in Engineering Sciences (Cum Laude) from Tufts University, MD from Wake Forest University, medical training at Northwestern University and cardiology training at Stanford University.
Guest Ken Lee had not really thought he would be a lawyer; he went to law school as a means for kicking life's decision-making down the road. After a summer job at the Attorney General's office in Boston and a course of study that pointed him to litigation, he had a couple of views of paths he could take. He started in litigation at a number of firms but found, over time, that he didn't find much joy in it. He figured that if a partner position came, he would continue the toil. The partner job did not materialize and, instead, he was let go. He took that as an opportunity to try out the public side and took a job back in the Attorney General's office, where he felt much more connected to the work.As he found his footing again professionally, his family of four got news that they would soon be five. Their surprise addition made Ken rethink how he wanted to be spending his time and what the optimal job-household divide was for their family. He made the decision to quit his job after the baby came so that his wife could spend more time pursuing her medical career.//The challenges of stay-at-home parenting loomed large but an even greater challenge loomed silently. A chance visit to the optometrist led to the discovery of a brain tumor.In this episode, find out from Ken how handling what comes at you is sometimes all there is to do…on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestKen Lee is former Assistant Attorney General in the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office and worked previsouly at both Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott and Goodwin Procter LLP.

Just because you have comfy sofas does not mean that you have to sit down. You could still stand up for your goals and your ambitions and treat this December just as you would next January – with enthusiasm, optimism, and a deep desire to continue to evolve. It's almost the end of 2021 and I want to be sure that you do everything in your power to end this year with a bang! In this episode, I've decided to share with you some key ideas or ways to evaluate what you can do or should be doing during these final weeks of the year. And so, I want to share with you three key ideas that I think are going to help you rethink how to approach the end of this year while keeping in mind what you want to accomplish in 2022. I'm also sharing the approach that has helped me become successful, something that requires consistent movement, either at a turtle pace or as quickly as a hare. You will also hear this concept pertaining to celebrating your wins and pulling forth the person you have become. You will also have a good sense of what a Q&A session sounds like if you decide to join me as a Patreon podcast supporter for only $1-$10 per month. During this week's Q&A, the listeners wanted to understand how to make their own networking magic and how to ultimately bring in more people so they could end their year with a bang. It's meant for podcast listeners who might want to start their own podcasts. Or they may have questions pertaining to how to network with someone they don't know, and even people that they've known and haven't spoken to in a decade. I know that's quite common. This year has not yet ended, you're still in the game! And I have full faith that you can still move in the direction of your biggest ambitions. So hear out these very specific insights that you can implement before the year ends. Highlights The turtle vs. the hare: Both animals approach things differently – one in a consistent slow motion, the other in a rapid pace. Think through what you want to accomplish at the end of the year and how you can set yourself up for success. Persistence: It's not so much about how you get to the end goal, but about how you persist, stay the course, and eventually get to that end goal. Success: Contemplate your biggest wins. Your wins can be small, like cooking a meal for yourself every day or meditating. What are these things that you can bring with you into 2022? Think about who you wish to become by the end of 2022. Potential: When you make that decision to become a different version of yourself, acknowledge that you have more potential to unleash. It's an effort to build your capability; in other words, a Pokemon evolution moment. Commitment: Get clear on how committed you are to this next evolution of yourself. Identify the behaviors required of you and what it takes for them to be non-negotiable. Now: When you think about what you want to accomplish at the end of 2022, the decision to commit begins RIGHT NOW. It begins before those holiday parties. This way, you could truly end this year with a bang! Choice: Use December as your time to make additional leaps towards your goal. This year has not ended. Even if you feel like with the barrage of holiday parties, your diet has ended. You get to choose whether things have ended or not, and how the rest of December will play out. Pace: You get to choose how you're going to run your personal race, whether at a turtle's pace or a hare's pace. Either way, you have to stay the course – and that's the most important piece! Imagination: A lot of us have missed out on and outgrown our sense of imagination, our childlike wonder, and the expectation of magic in our lives. The highly successful people have that childlike sense of imagination, optimism, and they look at the world in a very different way. Trust: A lot of times, we end up outsourcing our trust to other people. Many people with great ideas who don't trust themselves end up never having their ideas get off the ground. They don't take the steps because they don't trust themselves enough to know what to do if something blows up in their face. Faith: Trust in your abilities to identify the moments where you can add value and that moment will be made available to you. Networking: There is a shared human experience that you can always talk about. The important piece here is authenticity. Grace: Contemplate, evaluate and look at what you have done in 2021, and not feel shame, disappointment or anger, or annoyance. Give yourself some credit for what you have done and grace for whatever you have yet to do.

This episode continues our series of "industry spotlights," in which we focus on specific trends and opportunities in middle market M&A transactions. This episode focuses on the automotive reconditioning industry, a $5.4 billion industry that is highly fragmented and ripe for consolidation. Colonnade has extensive transaction experience in the automotive services industry and has been the sell side or buy side M&A advisor on many of the automotive services industry transactions that have taken place over the last decade. Colonnade has insider-level mastery of the drivers of valuation, competitive positioning, business trends, relevant metrics, and the right buyer universe, enabling us to provide superior deal execution to our clients. Colonnade recently published a white paper on the automotive reconditioning industry. The white paper is available here. In this episode, we answer the following questions: What is automotive reconditioning? Why do automotive dealerships outsource reconditioning? What is the industry size, and who are the largest participants in the industry? What are the value drivers for automotive reconditioning companies? What are the M&A trends in the automotive reconditioning industry? What is automotive reconditioning? (02:10) Gina: Automotive reconditioning is the process of making a newly acquired vehicle retail-ready. Dealerships get cars in a couple of ways. On the new side, they get it directly from the OEMs, and on the used side, they may be buying it from auctions or taking vehicles as a trade-in. Used vehicles need to be reconditioned to be car lot ready. Do dealerships have an in-house reconditioning department? (04:17) Gina: The majority of dealerships outsource reconditioning. What is the size of the automotive reconditioning industry, and who are the industry participants? (05:01) Gina: We estimate that the automotive reconditioning industry is a $5.4 billion market. It is comprised of mainly single technician entrepreneurs, a technician who is skilled in a specific trade. When a dealership outsources reconditioning, they are probably outsourcing it to three to five reconditioning technicians that are independent contractors. What types of dealerships typically outsource automotive reconditioning versus having it in-house? (06:25) Gina: The largest dealerships are the most likely to outsource because they realize how inefficient it is to have highly paid employees reconditioning cars. They could use that time doing much more valuable service lane work. Independent dealerships and smaller dealerships tend to have automotive reconditioning done in-house. How many companies are in the automotive reconditioning industry? (07:50) Gina: We don't really see many companies of scale. Based on the number of dealerships out there, we estimated as many as 40,000 independent technicians nationwide doing this type of work. Why do dealerships outsource automotive reconditioning? (09:57) Gina: Skilled technicians are expensive and in high demand at dealerships. Outsourcing automotive reconditioning helps to keep up the profitability of the dealership. Why do dealerships need to make vehicles retail ready as quickly as possible? (10:30) Gina: New and used vehicle supplies are low, and demand is high. Low supply and high demand are driving prices of cars to an all-time high, so dealerships need to get vehicles retail ready as quickly as possible. How do dealerships manage relationships with multiple outsourced automotive reconditioning vendors? (13:02) Gina: It is a lot of process management, and there is some software to manage the process, but still, managing five different vendors is inefficient, especially if the dealers do not control their daily activity because they are independent. Who are the largest participants in the automotive reconditioning industry? (14:05) Gina: The largest in the industry is Dent Wizard. Some companies, such as Streamline Recon, are located in large metropolitan markets, and they may have some scale. But, aside from these companies, there are not many companies of scale. This industry is very fragmented. What systems or processes do automotive reconditioning companies need to scale up? (16:16) Gina: There are a couple of reconditioning workflow management software available, which seem to be critical to any dealership technician relationships that they want to run efficiently. There is room for the adoption of robust workflow management software in the reconditioning process. Does automotive reconditioning include fixing a vehicle's mechanical issues? (18:00) Gina: The mechanical part, making sure the car runs without banging noises and that it starts and stops, is all done before it gets to the reconditioning center. Automotive reconditioning is all about appearance. How does the collision center industry compare with the automotive reconditioning sector? (19:10) Gina: The collision industry is a very different market. The work is largely being paid for by insurance companies in the collision industry and has nothing to do with dealerships. So, you do not see collision centers doing reconditioning work very often. They are very separate businesses. What are the value drivers for automotive reconditioning companies? (20:38) Gina: Value drivers include size, number of employees, scale, and diversification of revenue. Also, process management is an important component. What are the M&A trends in the automotive reconditioning industry? (22:34) Gina: We will see quite a bit of M&A activity in this space over the next decade. It is a profitable industry that is important to dealerships. Dealerships outsource automotive reconditioning to several vendors, which is inefficient in terms of process management. Automotive reconditioning companies that can do it all for dealerships will be the winners. Host Information Gina Cocking Gina Cocking serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Colonnade Advisors.

Based on actual quotes from Yale admissions officers (from this podcast: https://www.stitcher.com/show/inside-the-yale-admissions-office/episode/dealing-with-decisions-82872057) and my own conversations with similar people at Harvard, Dartmouth, and others, I share my personal opinion about how you should respond to admissions decisions.

On our final episode of Season Two, we're talking to Naomi Oreskes, professor, climate activist, and author of the book Merchants of Doubt. Naomi began her academic career in Geology and Earth Sciences, working at Stanford and Dartmouth, but later began teaching the History of Science at NYU and UC San Diego. Now, as a Harvard History of Science professor, Naomi is educating her students—and the world—on human-caused, or anthropogenic, climate change. Her most well-known book, Merchants of Doubt—co-authored by Erik M. Conway and later made into a documentary of the same name—parallels the misinformation campaigns led against climate change with those led against the negative effects of tobacco. We talk about the companies that led those campaigns, the universities that have divested from fossil fuels, and the scientists who have raised public awareness. Her most recent book, Science on a Mission, is available here. Reminder that we plant a tree for every subscriber, so go ahead and hit that button! Executive Produced by Sustainable Partners, Inc.
