EPISODE 173 What are your financial values? Can you define them? Can you change them? Are you afraid to change your financial values? A value is defined as “a person's principles or standards of behavior; one's judgment of what is important in life.” Financial values are defined as “what you think or believe about debt, credit, spending, money and investments.” Do you know the root of your financial values? A root is defined as “the origin or source of something.” Let me tell you another true story. I first learned about my initial root for my financial values because of one of the small plastic toys in a box on the window sill of a drug store I wanted to buy when I was 6 years old. Wanting to purchase that toy provided a positive root for my own initial financial values. The purchase also planted a seed of interest in me for financial matters. That seed grew over my lifetime and motivated me to co-author an award-winning and best-selling book, The Plastic Effect: How Urban Legends Influence the Use and Misuse of Credit Cards. My book is a self-help book helping people understand credit, debt and how credit cards and debit cards actual work. The book won an independent publisher award, named the best new book in the finance/budgeting category and became a best-seller in paper and electronic formats on Amazon. What are your financial values right now? What is the root of your own financial values? Determining the root of your financial values and planting seeds to create new financial values will allow you to make a positive impact in your life moving forward.

Hunters throughout the uplands walk many miles each season in pursuit of various quail species. From the bobwhites in the Southeast, Gambel's and scaled quail in the desert Southwest, Mearns and mountain quail in the hills, and California quail throughout the west, several million birds are shot on the wing, loaded in game bags, and eventually cleaned and consumed. Sure, most hunters will note the sex of each bird harvested, but there is one more piece of data that is often skipped by most hunters: aging their birds. For many game birds, distinguishing between juvenile and adult is fairly easy, and quail are no exception. In fact, quail lend themselves to determining the actual hatch date of a juvenile to within just a few days of when the bird pipped its way out of a quarter-sized egg. This information can add a bit of scientific fun for an upland junkie, but can also be useful information to help explain previous reproductive output and possibly even help guide future habitat management.

“The problem is where the value is.” Consultants often struggle with two critical questions: How do you decide whether to work with a particular client? And, once you've decided you want to, how do you figure out what to charge them? The answers to these questions are found in the discovery session. When you ask powerful questions, you unlock a wealth of information. This information not only helps you understand your client's needs but also empowers you to make informed decisions about whether you can help them. And, perhaps most crucially, it provides the foundation for setting the right price for your services. In today's episode, we're diving deep into the world of powerful sales questions. These are the questions that will transform your discovery calls into invaluable tools for pricing your services accurately, all while ensuring your clients get precisely what they need. KEY POINTS: Introduction The red flag that means you can't help a potential client The essential first question to ask The key to identifying a perfect client How to find the motivation behind your clients' problems Determining the value in value-based pricing The critical question a lot of people are afraid to ask, especially women Quantifying costs to educate clients on a problem's financial impact To close more higher-value sales, listen for this When you ask the right questions - powerful questions - you elicit information that you can use to price your services, to price an engagement, and to really understand what is going on with a client.

And she started asking me about what my goals were in the future, and I started thinking, oh, yes, I want to do this and this. But then the way I thought it was the traditional way to get there was not exactly what I truly wanted. And sometimes it is hard to acknowledge that we want something and say it out loud. James [00:01:15]: Okay. Victoria Thayer [00:01:16]: I guess because sometimes we're just scared, like, oh, maybe it's too big. Maybe it's too big for me. Can I really do that? Oh, who do I think I am to be able to do that? So those were the fears I had, and she helped me kind of uncover it and be like, I think you truly want to do this. You just are afraid to say it. James [00:01:35]: All right. Victoria Thayer [00:01:36]: So she really helped me see that. And it was only a couple of months after that coffee that we ...

On today's Bible Answer Man broadcast (11/15/23), Hank answers the following questions:How can I determine which church, pastor, or religion is true? My parents are Seventh-Day Adventists and want me to attend their church. What do you think about them? (0:42)Is the warning in Revelation 22:18-19, only about that book or the entire Bible?

How is AI being used at the edge, and what possibilities does this create for businesses? In this episode, host Bill Pfeifer sits down with the co-authors of the book AI at the Edge, Jenny Plunkett, Senior Developer Relations Engineer and Daniel Situnayake, Head of ML at Edge Impulse. They discuss how to determine which problems can actually be addressed through AI at the edge, how to think about effective AI, and unexpected use cases in generative AI and synthetic data generation. Plus, they cover how AI can support data distillation efforts and how to build teams that can successfully navigate this landscape. ---------Key Quotes:“We're going to be using generative AI to help us build a synthetic data set to train other AI models to deploy to edge devices.” - Jenny“One of the things that's really cool about synthetic data and using generative AI for that, is it potentially reduces the cost of training a model because instead of having to spend huge amounts of money labeling all this data, if you create the data yourself, you can have it implicitly be labeled.” - Dan --------Show Timestamps:(01:49) How did they get started in tech?

One of the exciting growth points we reach with GU clients is when they hit a revenue mark whereby they need to start hiring a team.Whether it's an assistant, another coach, sales person, etc, growing your revenue to the point of being able to add a team member is exciting!But it also has challenges. One big question we get is “how much do I pay them?”Determining salary can be pretty tricky.Where should I pay them in comparison to other companies? How much of the pay should be base salary vs variable (incentive) pay? How often should I re-evaluate my employees' pay structure.I've outlined exactly what we do at Growth Tools in today's podcast episode.
The “most wonderful time of the year” is just around the corner. But is it the most wonderful time?! Haha! Every year, I record a holiday episode where I help you prep for the holiday season in a way that I hope will bring peace, ease, and joy to your December. Usually, I share this episode in early December. This year, I'm sharing it early because I want you to start creating that peace, ease, and joy you're craving now! Every holiday season brings new circumstances. Your kids are a year older than last year. Your parents are a year older than last year. Your work (and therefore vacation/time off) situation may be totally different. Your financial situation might be different. Your relationships might be different. It's worth reflecting each pre-holiday season on “What's most important this year?” You may answer this question very differently than last year. In this episode, I offer you 4 invitations to: Determining your magic-making moments Build better boundaries where needed Create inner calm Take time now to prep for your time off I will share what has worked well for me and for members of our community over the last few years in hopes you might get some sparks on how you can intentionally make this the most wonderful time of the year for yourself and your family - for real!

We're continuing our new podcast series on thought leadership. Today we're going to take a look at what exactly a signature talk is and what it should be doing for you. Any presentation you give *should* be a signature talk. Why? Because any presentation you deliver should be a combination of your expertise + your thought leadership + your personal brand. Your signature talk isn't a bunch of information on your topic. Your signature talk has a specific purpose for you and for your audience; it should be doing something for you. You're not there to pass along information and to train your audience, unless you're doing a workshop, which if you are, that's great and you should be getting paid for that. This is where I see speakers get stuck in what I call the expert trap. They think they have to train and teach in order to provide value; but when you're speaking at a conference or at a local group or as a keynote, you're there to share an experience with the audience, to get them to think about something in a new or different way. In this episode, you'll hear: Determining what you want your signature talk to do for you The elements that make a transformative signature talk How to put your signature talk together using our Signature Talk Canvas® framework Ways you can repurpose your signature talk Whether you can have more than one signature talk The signature talk I'm working on Get our Signature Talk Canvas® framework and a lot more in our 24-page FREE guide and workbook on Developing Your Thought Leadership at https://www.speakingyourbrand.com/guide/.

The American career Fire Service has often used basic testing and an interview of two when seeking new hires. And that may have served the need, “back in the day.” However, now into the third decade of the 21st Century, we should and need to create a new construct. Moreover, if we wish to remember that retention of current members should come before recruitment, we need a new paradigm to succeed for tomorrow!Our returning guest, Dr. Gamaliel Baer, who holds an Ed.D. from the University of Southern California in Organizational Change and Leadership, provides us with a better, more inclusive and “whole person” perspective on improving our efforts to both retain current members and be successful with recruitment as well. Dr. Baer explains that the concepts of DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) should be expanded to include the mind, body and soul. Determining whether or not a recruit is a “good fit” for the department simply based on a basic civil test and a clear police record does not provide that department with all the values that a recruit brings to the table. We should also look at the person's mind, body and soul. Unlike the period from the early 1900's through the late 1980's, when the male children of firefighters often followed in their fathers' line of work. (Except for many terrific children who lost family members in the tragedy of 9|11). Today, that is not as common and thus, we must make stronger efforts to bring in the men and women to join our ranks. And Dr. Baer posits that a better and more complete look at our recruits could very well brings us excellent candidates who “hear the calling” and want to serve their communities. To read Dr. Baer's essay on this topic, please visit: https://drgamalielbaer.substack.com/p/dei-in-the-fire-servicePlease help us to help our Brothers and Sisters in dire need!

My guests this week are Elizabeth Zalman and Jerry Neumann. Jerry has been on this show two times before. He's an early-stage Venture Capitalist, an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship, and an excellent writer. Liz is a two-time founder, most recently co-founding StrongDM, in which Jerry was a seed investor. Together, they have written a somewhat contentious book called "Founder vs Investor" that lays bare the relationship at the core of most new businesses. They take specific moments in a start-up's life up to IPO and share their experiences on the friction that inevitably appears. In our conversation, we discuss the strong reaction to the book, the incentive problem at the root of the relationship, and explore best practices for other founders and VCs to follow. Please enjoy my conversation with Jerry Neumann and Liz Zalman.

In this episode, we examine the ubiquitous presence of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the roles of policy makers, political pundits, and positions of power. The CIA is often seen as the mastermind behind various conspiracy theories within the United States Government, responsible for a rich history of deceit, grand schemes of social engineering, and covert operations that have influenced our course of history. Regardless of one's civilian position or standing within the hierarchies of power, the omnipotence and omnipresence of the CIA are deeply entrenched and hardwired within the deep state agenda. As the saying goes, "You do not even want to poke the bear in the intelligence community." We will address the elephant in the room. The topic at hand is Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), which lie at the center of the CIA's historic and deceptive grand strategy to employ political diversion and informational division in shaping public opinion and policy-making. The recent congressional hearings featuring former military officers and insider witnesses testify against the US government's significant involvement with extraterrestrials and its harboring of UFO technologies for military applications. This evidence is seen in facilities such as Area 51, the White Sands Missile Range, and numerous other government, scientific, and military organizations involved. The Intelligence Agency's involvement with UFOs has long been a subject of intrigue and speculation. Sightings and encounters with these mysterious objects have fueled conspiracy theories and ignited the imaginations of individuals around the world. A whistleblower in Congress has sparked a new revelation in recent years, placing the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at the center of a growing debate: Are they orchestrating a mind game or revealing genuine information about these extraordinary phenomena? In this episode, Alexander and Jason will delve deeper into this fascinating topic, exploring the possible motives behind the CIA's involvement. This episode will also explore Jason's past experiences and his affiliation with the military-industrial complex, his service as a combat veteran of the United States Marine Corps (USMC). Jason shares valuable insights into what it's like to serve in the military, as well as his personal growth as a combat veteran later in life. Psychological Operations is a hard game, it is very difficult to nail down the specifics and maintain the play of endless charades, trying to avoid being caught red-handed. The United States government has perfected the art of statecraft in concealing top-profile information for public transparency. They made it impossible to advance. Using the leverage of authority in power and manipulating the people's interest. Much valuable information that could and should benefit the public interest lost in the halls of deceit and deliberate fabrication of data and absolute corruption of power. It is no secret that the CIA has played a significant role in various secretive operations throughout history. With its reputation for covert intelligence gathering and manipulation, many skeptics argue that the intelligence agency's involvement in the UFO phenomenon could be part of a Psychological Operations (PSYOPs). They suggest that the CIA may be using UFOs and UAPs to divert attention from classified projects or manipulate public perception for ulterior motives, deep state agenda. Moreover, independent research surveys indicates the anathema of this outcome, more and more Americans are now believing in alien existence. On the other side of the spectrum, proponents of the genuine disclosure theory believe that the CIA's involvement signifies a turning point in the official acknowledgment of the existence of UFOs. They argue that the declassification of certain documents and the formation of task forces dedicated to studying these phenomena indicate a sincere effort to disclose credible information to the public. These advocates argue that the CIA's participation in the conversation should be viewed as a positive step toward greater transparency and understanding. Slowly but surely, they aim to bring disclosure through non-coercive means, such as incorporating UFO-related elements into popular culture, movies, and entertainment. Under the PSYOP theory, supporters claim that the CIA deliberately uses sightings of UFOs and UAPs as a means of public distraction and as part of a disinformation campaign against transparency. There exist certain polarities within psychological operations, often deliberate in their objectives. Jason outlines several elements in the definition of PSYOP based on the USMC doctrine: Determining the Mission and Objectives of the operation by testing the public's response to the information and condition the populace for future endeavors; Determining and planning target audiences analysis; Series Development Process; Get official approval and formal endorsement from authorities. By promoting narratives that confuse and obfuscate, they create a sense of mystery and uncertainty, ultimately preventing the public from uncovering hidden truths about potential clandestine activities. This is evident in the CIA's agenda to downplay the UFO conspiracy in popular culture mediums, whether it be prominent Hollywood productions or fringe Sci-Fi literature. The public, as a whole, has become increasingly interested and invested in UAPs now that the cat is out of the box. We face a broader security issue at hand. UAPs and their associated spacecraft vessels can generate pure energies that surpass the capabilities of existing solar panels on satellites. The entire military-industrial complex benefits from the wonders of UFO technology. But, inevitably, all secrets have their day. Keeping a secret is both exhausting and expensive. The CIA slowly drips information, leaving small breadcrumbs for people to follow until, eventually, the secret is no more. To make sense of this chaotic issue, it must be approached with balance and an equitable perception of understanding. To venture further, one must possess sufficient awareness relative to our foundational knowledge and all the available information at hand. This is the structural design of intelligence, just as aliens would travel vast distances to Earth in order to gain genuine knowledge. Likewise, the government can certainly enhance its capabilities and reach new heights that extend beyond the far reaches of the universe if we, as a collective species, aspire to achieve greatness in our evolution. Regardless of the true motivations behind the CIA's involvement, the ongoing controversy serves as an awakening to the truth, a call to higher awareness that extends beyond the grand scheme of the boundless mysteries within our universe. The CIA's efforts encourage, empower, and incentivize us to seek the truth. As always, Higher Density Living reserves no dogma because only the truth prevails in the universe.
