We discuss Carolyn Said's story in the San Francisco Chronicle about Margarita Bekker, who was charged $10k for a cab ride, disputes with Bank of America only to be told it was a legit charge. I explain what happened on the bank side, and how the bank only helped her because she got through to the media. I then discuss Wells Fargo getting rid of "overdraft-related fees" but not Overdraft fees... Make sense? It barely does to me. I discuss how the things offered impact like 2% of their client base, and not the ones who need help the most! I then briefly talk about MLB and Bank of America ending their partnership, MLB hooking up with Capital One, and how this will impact BofA Bankers, as it was a lot easier to sell customers items that had their favorite team branded on the cards.

This weekly show features conversations with people doing interesting work in the world of cloud, thoughtful commentary on the state of the technical world, and ridiculous titles for which Corey refuses to apologize. This is Screaming in the Cloud.Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by our friends at Redis, the company behind the incredibly popular open source database that is not the bind DNS server. If you're tired of managing open source Redis on your own, or you're using one of the vanilla cloud caching services, these folks have you covered with the go to manage Redis service for global caching and primary database capabilities; Redis Enterprise. To learn more and deploy not only a cache but a single operational data platform for one Redis experience, visit redis.com/hero. Thats r-e-d-i-s.com/hero. And my thanks to my friends at Redis for sponsoring my ridiculous non-sense.  Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by our friends at Rising Cloud, which I hadn't heard of before, but they're doing something vaguely interesting here. They are using AI, which is usually where my eyes glaze over and I lose attention, but they're using it to help developers be more efficient by reducing repetitive tasks. So, the idea being that you can run stateless things without having to worry about scaling, placement, et cetera, and the rest. They claim significant cost savings, and they're able to wind up taking what you're running as it is in AWS with no changes, and run it inside of their data centers that span multiple regions. I'm somewhat skeptical, but their customers seem to really like them, so that's one of those areas where I really have a hard time being too snarky about it because when you solve a customer's problem and they get out there in public and say, “We're solving a problem,” it's very hard to snark about that. Multus Medical, Construx.ai and Stax have seen significant results by using them. And it's worth exploring. So, if you're looking for a smarter, faster, cheaper alternative to EC2, Lambda, or batch, consider checking them out. Visit risingcloud.com/benefits. That's risingcloud.com/benefits, and be sure to tell them that I said you because watching people wince when you mention my name is one of the guilty pleasures of listening to this podcast.Corey: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud, I'm Corey Quinn. One of the joyful parts of working with cloud computing is that you get to put a whole lot of things you don't want to deal with onto the shoulders of the cloud provider you're doing business with—or cloud providers as the case may be, if you fallen down the multi-cloud well. One of those things is often significant aspects of security. And that's great, right, until it isn't. Today, I'm joined by not one guest, but rather three coming to us from Wiz, which I originally started off believing was, oh, it's a small cybersecurity research group. But they're far more than that. Thank you for joining me, and could you please introduce yourself?Shir: Yes, thank you, Corey. My name is Shir, Shir Tamari. I lead the security research team at Wiz. I working in the company for the past year. I'm working with these two nice teammates.Nir: Hi, my name is Nir Ohfield,. I'm a security researcher at the Wiz research team. I've also been working for the Wiz research team for the last year. And yeah.Sagi: I'm Sagi, Sagi Tzadik. I also work for the Wiz research team for the last six months.Corey: I want to thank you for joining me. You folks really burst onto the scene earlier this year, when I suddenly started seeing your name come up an awful lot. And it brought me back to my childhood where there was an electronics store called Nobody Beats the Wiz. It was more or less a version of Fry's on a different coast, and they went out of business and oh, good. We're going back in time. And suddenly it felt like I was going back in time in a different light because you had a number of high profile vulnerabilities that you had discovered, specifically in the realm of Microsoft Azure. The two that leap to mind the most readily for me are ChaosDB and the OMIGOD exploits. There was a third as well, but why don't you tell me, in your own words, what it is that you discovered and how that played out?Shir: We, sort of, found the vulnerabilities in Microsoft Azure. We did report multiple vulnerabilities also in GCP, and AWS. We had multiple vulnerabilities in AWS [unintelligible 00:02:42] cross-account. It was a cross-account access to other tenants; it just was much less severe than the ChaosDB vulnerability that we will speak on more later. And a both we've present in Blackhat in Vegas in [unintelligible 00:02:56]. So, we do a lot of research. You mentioned that we have a third one. Which one did you refer to?Corey: That's a good question because you had the I want to say it was called as Azurescape, and you're doing a fantastic job with branding a number of your different vulnerabilities, but there's also, once you started reporting this, a lot of other research started coming out as well from other folks. And I confess, a lot of it sort of flowed together and been very hard to disambiguate, is this a systemic problem; is this, effectively, a whole bunch of people piling on now that their attention is being drawn somewhere; or something else? Because you've come out with an awful lot of research in a short period of time.Shir: Yeah, we had a lot of good research in the past year. It's a [unintelligible 00:03:36] mention Azurecape was actually found by a very good researcher in Palo Also. And… do you remember his name?Sagi: No, I can't recall his name is.Corey: Yeah, they came out of unit 42 as I recall, their cybersecurity division. Every tech company out there seems to have some sort of security research division these days. What I think is, sort of, interesting is that to my understanding, you were founded, first and foremost, as a security company. You're not doing this as an ancillary to selling something else like a firewall, or, effectively, you're an ad comp—an ad tech company like Google, we you're launching Project Zero. You are first and foremost aimed at this type of problem.Shir: Yes. Wiz is not just a small research company. It's actually pretty big company with over 200 employees. And the purpose of this product is a cloud security suite that provides [unintelligible 00:04:26] scanning capabilities in order to find risks in cloud environments. And the research team is a very small group. We are [unintelligible 00:04:35] researchers.We have multiple responsibilities. Our first responsibility is to find risks in cloud environments: It could be misconfigurations, it could be vulnerabilities in libraries, in software, and we add those findings and the patterns we discover to the product in order to protect our customers, and to allow them for new risks. Our second responsibility is also to do a community research where we research everyone vulnerabilities in public products and cloud providers, and we share our findings with the cloud providers, then also with the community to make the cloud more secure.Corey: I can't shake the feeling that if there weren't folks doing this sort of research and shining a light on what it is that the cloud providers are doing, if they were to discover these things at all, they would very quietly, effectively, fix it in the background and never breathe a word of it in public. I like the approach that you're taking as far as dragging it, kicking and screaming, into the daylight, but I also have to imagine that probably doesn't win you a whole lot of friends at the company that you're focusing on at any given point in time. Because whenever you talk to a company about a security issue, it seems like the first thing they're concerned about is, “Okay, how do we wind up spinning this or making sure that we minimize the reputational damage?” And then there's a secondary reaction of, “Oh, and how do we protect our customers? But mostly, how do we avoid looking bad as a result?” And I feel like that's an artifact of corporate culture these days. But it feels like the relationship has got to be somewhat interesting to navigate from your perspective.Shir: So, once we found a vulnerability and we discuss it with the vendor, okay, first, I will mention that most cloud providers have a bug bounty program where they encourage researchers to find vulnerabilities and to discover new security threats. And all of them, as a public disclosure, [unintelligible 00:06:29] program will researchers are welcome and get safe harbor, you know, where the disclosure vulnerabilities. And I think it's, like, common interest, both for customers, but for researchers, and the cloud providers to know about those vulnerabilities, to mitigate it down. And we do believe that sometimes cloud providors does resolve and mitigate vulnerabilities behind the scenes, and we know—we don't know for sure, but—I don't know about everything, but just by the vulnerabilities that we find, we assume that there is much more of them that we never heard about. And this is something that we believe needs to be changed in the industry.Cloud providers should be more transparent, they should show more information about the result vulnerabilities. Definitely when a customer data was accessible, or where it was at risk, or at possible risk. And this is actually—it's something that we actually trying to change in the industry. We have a community and, like, innovative community. It's like an initiative that we try to collect, we opened a Slack channel called the Cloud CVE, and we try to invite as much people as we can that concern about cloud's vulnerabilities, in order to make a change in the industry, and to assist cloud providers, or to convince cloud providers to be more transparent, to enumerate cloud vulnerabilities so they have an identifier just, like cloud CVE, like a CVE, and to make the cloud more protected and more transparent customers.Corey: The thing that really took me aback by so much of what you found is that we've become relatively accustomed to a few patterns over the past 15 to 20 years. For example, we're used to, “Oh, this piece of software you run on your desktop has a horrible flaw. Great.” Or this thing you run in your data center, same story; patch, patch, patch, patch patch. That's great.But there was always the sense that these were the sorts of things that were sort of normal, but the cloud providers were on top of things, where they were effectively living up to their side of the shared responsibility bargain. And that whenever you wound up getting breached, for whatever reason—like in the AWS world, where oh, you wound up losing a bunch of customer data because you had an open S3 bucket? Well, yeah, that's not really something you can hang super effectively around the neck of the cloud provider, given that you're the one that misconfigured that. But what was so striking about what you found with both of the vulnerabilities that we're talking about today, the customer could have done everything absolutely correctly from the beginning and still had their data exposed. And that feels like it's something relatively new in the world of cloud service providers.Is this something that's been going on for a while and we're just now shining a light on it? Have I just missed a bunch of interesting news stories where the clouds have—“Oh, yeah, by the way, people, we periodically have to go in and drag people out of our cloud control plane because oops-a-doozy, someone got in there again with the squirrels,” or is this something that is new?Shir: So, we do see an history other cases where probability [unintelligible 00:09:31] has disclosed vulnerabilities in the cloud infrastructure itself. There was only few, and usually, it was—the research was conducted by independent researchers. And I don't think it had such an impact, like ChaosDB, which allowed [cross-system 00:09:51] access to databases of other customers, which was a huge case. And so if it wasn't a big story, so most people will not hear about it. And also, independent researchers usually don't have the back that we have here in Wiz.We have a funding, we have the marketing division that help us to get coverage with reporters, who make sure to make—if it's a big story, we make sure that other people will hear about it. And I believe that in most bug bounty programs where independent researchers find vulnerabilities, usually they more care about the bounty than the aftereffect of stopping the vulnerability, sharing it with the community. Usually also, independent [unintelligible 00:10:32] usually share the findings with the research community. And the research community is relatively small to the IT community. So, it is new, but it's not that new.There was some events back in history, [unintelligible 00:10:46] similar vulnerabilities. So, I think that one of the points here is that everyone makes a mistake. You can find bugs which affected mostly, as you mentioned previously, this software that you installed on your desktop has bugs and you need to patch it, but in the case of cloud providers, when they make mistakes, when they introduce bugs to the service, it affects all of their customers. And this is something that we should think about. So, mistakes that are being made by cloud providers have a lot of impact regarding their customers.Corey: Yeah. It's not a story of you misconfigured, your company's SAN, so you're the one that was responsible for a data breach. It's suddenly, you're misconfiguring everyone's SAN simultaneously. It's the sheer scale and scope of what it is that they've done. And—Shir: Yeah, exactly.Corey: —I'm definitely on board with that. But the stuff I've seen in the past, from cloud providers—AWS, primarily, since that is admittedly where I tend to focus most of my time and energy—has been privilege escalation style stuff, where, okay, if you assign some users at your company—or wherever—access to this managed IAM policy, well, they'll have suddenly have access to things that go beyond the scope of that. And that's not good, let's be very clear on that, but it is a bit different between that and oh, by the way, suddenly, someone in another company that has no relationship established with you at all can suddenly rummage through your data that you're storing in Cosmos DB, their managed database offering. That's the thing to me that I think was the big head-turning aspect of this, not just for me, but for a number of folks I've spoken to, in financial services, in government, in a bunch of environments where data privacy is not optional in the same way that it is when, you know, you're running a social media for pets app.Nir: [laugh]. Yeah, but the thing is, that until the publication of ChaosDB, no one ever heard about the [unintelligible 00:12:40] data tampering in any cloud providers. Meaning maybe in six months, you can see a similar vulnerabilities in other cloud providers that maybe other security research groups find. So yeah, so Azure was maybe the first, but we don't think they will be the last.Shir: Yes. And also, when we do the community research, it is very important to us to take big targets. We enjoy the research. One day, the research will be challenging and we want to do something that it was new and great, so we always put a very big targets. To actually find vulnerability in the infrastructure of the cloud provider, it was very challenging for us.When didn't came ChaosDB by that; we actually found it by mistake. But now we think actively that this is our next goal is to find vulnerabilities in the infrastructure and not just vulnerabilities that affect only the—vulnerabilities within the account itself, like [unintelligible 00:13:32] or bad scoped policies that affects only one account.Corey: That seems to be the transformative angle that you don't see nearly as much in existing studies around vulnerabilities in this space. It's always the, “Oh, no. We could have gotten breached by those people across the hallway from us in our company,” as opposed to folks on the other side of the planet. And that is, I guess, sort of the scary thing. What has also been interesting to me, and you obviously have more experience with this than I do, but I have a hard time envisioning that, for example, AWS, having a vulnerability like this and not immediately swinging into disaster firefighting mode, sending their security execs on a six month speaking tour to explain what happened, how it got there, all of the steps that they're taking to remediate this, but Azure published a blog post explaining this in relatively minor detail: Here are the mitigations you need to take, and as far as I can tell, then they sort of washed their hands of the whole thing and have enthusiastically begun saying absolutely nothing since.And that I have learned is sort of fairly typical for Microsoft, and has been for a while, where they just don't talk about these things when it arises. Does that match your experience? Is this something that you find that is common when a large company winds up being, effectively, embarrassed about their security architecture, or is this something that is unique to Microsoft tends to approach these things?Shir: I would say in general, we really like the Microsoft MSRC team. The group in Microsoft that's responsible for handling vulnerabilities, and I think it's like the security division inside Microsoft, MSRC. So, we have a really good relationship and we had really good time working with them. They're real professionals, they take our findings very seriously. I can tell that in the ChaosDB incident, they didn't plan to publish a blog post, and they did that after the story got a lot of attention.So, I'm looking at a PR team, and I have no idea out there decide stuff and what is their strategy, but as I mentioned earlier, we believe that there is much more cloud vulnerabilities that we never heard of, and it should change; they should publish more.Nir: It's also worth mentioning that Microsoft acted really quick on this vulnerability and took it very seriously. They issued the fix in less than 48 hours. They were very transparent in the entire procedure, and we had multiple teams meeting with them. The entire experience was pretty positive with each of the vulnerability we've ever reported to Microsoft.Sagi: So, it's really nice working with the guys that are responsible for security, but regarding PR, I agree that they should have posted more information regarding this incident.Corey: The thing that I found interesting about this, and I've seen aspects of it before, but never this strongly is, I was watching for, I guess, what I would call just general shittiness, for lack of a better term, from the other providers doing a happy dance of, “Aha, we're better than you are,” and I saw none of that. Because when I started talking to people in some depth at this at other companies, the immediate response—not just AWS, to be clear—has been no, no, you have to understand, this is not good for anyone because this effectively winds up giving fuel to the slow-burning fire of folks who are pulling the, “See, I told you the cloud wasn't secure.” And now the enterprise groundhog sees that shadow and we get six more years of building data centers instead of going to the cloud. So, there's no one in the cloud space who's happy with this kind of revelation and this type of vulnerability. My question for you is given that you are security researchers, which means you are generally cynical and pessimistic about almost everything technological, if you're like most of the folks in that space that I've spent time with, is going with cloud the wrong answer? Should people be building their own data centers out? Should they continue to be going on this full cloud direction? I mean, what can they do if everything's on fire and terrible all the time?Shir: So, I think that there is a trade-off when you embrace the cloud. On one hand, you get the fastest deployment times, and a good scalability regarding your infrastructure, but on the other end, when there is a security vulnerability in the cloud provider, you are immediately affected. But it is worth mentioning that the security teams or the cloud providers are doing extremely good job. Most likely, they are going to patch the vulnerability faster than it would have been patched in on-premise environment. And it's good that you have them working for you.And once the vulnerability is mitigated—depends on the vulnerability but in the case of ChaosDB—when the vulnerability was mitigated on Microsoft's end, and it was mitigated completely. No one else could have exploited after the mitigated it once. Yes, it's also good to mention that the cloud provides organization and companies a lot of security features, [unintelligible 00:18:34] I want to say security features, I would say, it provides a lot of tooling that helps security. The option to have one interface, like one API to control all of my devices, to get visibility to all of my servers, to enforce policies very easily, it's much more secure than on-premise environments, where there is usually a big mess, a lot of vendors.Because the power was in the on-prem, the power was on the user, so the user had a lot of options. Usually used many types of software, many types of hardware, it's really hard to mitigate the software vulnerability in on-prem environments. It's really helped to get the visibility. And the cloud provides a lot of security, like, a good aspects, and in my opinion, moving to the cloud for most organization would be a more secure choice than remain on-premise, unless you have a very, very small on-prem environment.Corey: This episode is sponsored by our friends at Oracle HeatWave is a new high-performance accelerator for the Oracle MySQL Database Service. Although I insist on calling it “my squirrel.” While MySQL has long been the worlds most popular open source database, shifting from transacting to analytics required way too much overhead and, ya know, work. With HeatWave you can run your OLTP and OLAP, don't ask me to ever say those acronyms again, workloads directly from your MySQL database and eliminate the time consuming data movement and integration work, while also performing 1100X faster than Amazon Aurora, and 2.5X faster than Amazon Redshift, at a third of the cost. My thanks again to Oracle Cloud for sponsoring this ridiculous nonsense.Corey: The challenge I keep running into is that—and this is sort of probably the worst of all possible reasons to go with cloud, but let's face it, when us-east-1 recently took an outage and basically broke a decent swath of the internet, a lot of companies were impacted, but they didn't see their names in the headlines; it was all about Amazon's outage. There's a certain value when a cloud provider takes an outage or a security breach, that the headlines screaming about it are about the provider, not about you and your company as a customer of that provider. Is that something that you're seeing manifest across the industry? Is that an unhealthy way to think about it? Because it feels almost like it's cheating in a way. It's, “Yeah, we had a security problem, but so did the entire internet, so it's okay.”Nir: So, I think that if there would be evidence that these kind of vulnerabilities were exploited while disclosure, then you wouldn't see headlines of companies, shouting in the headlines. But in the case of the us reporting the vulnerabilities prior to anyone exploiting them, results in nowhere a company showing up in the headlines. I think it's a slightly different situation than an outage.Shir: Yeah, but also, when one big provider have an outage or a breach, so usually, the customers will think it's out of my responsibility. I mean, it's bad; my data has been leaked, but what can I do? I think it's very easy for most people to forgive companies [unintelligible 00:21:11]. I mean, you know what, it's just not my area. So, maybe I'm not answer that into that. [laugh].Corey: No, no, it's very fair. The challenge I have, as a customer of all of these providers, to be honest, is that a lot of the ways that the breach investigations are worded of, “We have seen no evidence that this has been exploited.” Okay, that simultaneously covers the two very different use cases of, “We have pored through our exhaustive audit logs and validated that no one has done this particular thing in this particular way,” but it also covers the use case, “Of, hey, we learned we should probably be logging things, but we have no evidence that anything was exploited.” Having worked with these providers at scale, my gut impression is that they do in fact, have fairly detailed logs of who's doing what and where. Would you agree with that assessment, or do you find that you tend to encounter logging and analysis gaps as you find these exploits?Shir: We don't really know. Usually when—I mean, ChaosDB scenario, we got access to a Jupyter Notebook. And from the Jupyter Notebook, we continued to another internal services. And we—nobody stopped us. Nobody—we expected an email, like—Corey: “Whatcha doing over there, buddy?”Shir: Yeah. “Please stop doing that, and we're investigating you.” And we didn't get any. And also, we don't really know if they monitor it or not. I can tell from my technical background that logging so many environments, it's hard.And when you do decide to log all these events, you need to decide what to log. For example, if I have a database, a managed database, do I log all the queries that customers run? It's too much. If I have an HTTP application—a managed HTTP application—do I save all the access logs, like all the requests? And if so, what will be the retention time? For how long?We believe that it's very challenging on the cloud provider side, but it just an assumption. And doing the discussion with Microsoft, the didn't disclose any, like, scenarios they had with logging. They do mention that they're [unintelligible 00:23:26] viewing the logs and searching to see if someone exploited this vulnerability before we disclosed it. Maybe someone discovered before we did. But they told us they didn't find anything.Corey: One last area I'd love to discuss with you before we call it an episode is that it's easy to view Wiz through the lens of, “Oh, we just go out and find vulnerabilities here and there, and we make companies feel embarrassed—rightfully so—for the things that they do.” But a little digging shows that you've been around for a little over a year as a publicly known entity, and during that time, you've raised $600 million in funding, which is basically like what in the world is your pitch deck where you show up to investors and your slides are just, like, copies of their emails, and you read them to them?[laugh]I mean, on some level, it seems like that is a… as-, astounding amount of money to raise in a short period of time. But I've also done a little bit of digging, and to be clear, I do not believe that you have an extortion-based business model, which is a good thing. You're building something very interesting that does in-depth analysis of cloud workloads, and I think it's got an awful lot of promise. How does the vulnerability research that you do tie into that larger platform, other than, let's be honest, some spectacularly effective marketing.Sagi: Specifically in the ChaosDB vulnerability, we were actually not looking for a vulnerability in the cloud service providers. We were originally looking for common misconfigurations that our customers can make when they set up their Cosmos DB accounts, so that our product will be able to alert our customers regarding such misconfigurations. And then we went to the Azure portal and started to enable all of the features that Cosmos DB has to offer, and when we enabled enough features, we noticed some feature that could be vulnerable, and we started digging into it. And we ended up finding ChaosDB.But our original work was to try and find misconfigurations that our customers can make in order to protect them and not to find a vulnerability in the [CSP 00:25:31]. This was just, like, a byproduct of this research.Shir: Yes. There is, as I mentioned earlier, our main responsibility is to add a little security rist content to the product, to help customers to find new security risks in their environment. As you mentioned, like, the escalation possibilities within cloud accounts, and bad scoped policies, and many other security risks that are in the cloud area. And also, we are a very small team inside a big company, so most of the company, they are doing heavy [unintelligible 00:26:06] and talk with customers, they understand the risks, they understand the market, what the needs for tomorrow, and maybe we are well known for our vulnerabilities, but it just a very small part of the company.Corey: On some level, it says wonderful things about your product, and also terrifying things from different perspectives of, “Oh, yeah, we found one of the worst cloud breaches in years by accident,” as opposed to actively going in trying to find the thing that has basically put you on the global map of awareness around these things. Because there a lot of security companies out there doing different things. In fact, go to RSA, and you'll see basically 12 companies that just repeated over and over and over with different names and different brandings, and they're all selling some kind of firewall. This is something actively different because everyone can tell beautiful pictures with slides and whatnot, and the corporate buzzwords. You're one of those companies that actually did something meaningful, and it felt almost like a proof of concept. On some level, the fact that you weren't actively looking for it is kind of an amazing testament for the product itself.Shir: Yeah. We actually used the product in the beginning, in order to overview our own environment, and what is the most common services we use. In order—and we usually we mix this information with our product managers, know to understand what customers use and what products and services we need to research in order to bring value to the product.Sagi: Yeah, so the reason we chose to research Cosmos DB was that, we found that a lot of our Azure customers are using Cosmos DB on their production environments, and we wanted to add mitigations for common misconfigurations to our product in order to protect our customers.Nir: Yeah, the same goes with our other research, like OMIGOD, where we've seen that there is a excessive amount of [unintelligible 00:27:56] installations in an Azure environment, and it raised our [laugh] it raised our attention, and then found this vulnerability. It's mostly, like, popularity-guided research. [laugh].Shir: Yeah. And also [unintelligible 00:28:11] mention that maybe we find vulnerabilities by accident, but the service, we are doing vulnerability itself for the past ten years, and even more. So, we are very professional and this is what we do, and this is what we like to do. And we came skilled to the [crosstalk 00:28:25].Corey: It really is neat to see, just because every other security tool that I've looked at in recent memory tells you the same stuff. It's the same problem you see in the AWS billing space that I live in. Everyone says, “Oh, we can find these inactive instances that could be right-sized.” Great, because everyone's dealing with the same data. It's the security stuff is no different. “Hey, this S3 bucket is open.” Yes, it's a public web server. Please stop waking me up at two in the morning about it. It's there by design.But it goes back and forth with the same stuff just presented differently. This is one of the first truly novel things I've seen in ages. If nothing else, you convince me to kick the tires on it, and see what kind of horrifying things I can learn about my own environments with it.Shir: Yeah, you should. [laugh]. Let's poke [unintelligible 00:29:13].[laugh].Corey: I want to thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me today. If people want to learn more about the research you're up to and the things that you find interesting, where can they find you all?Shir: Most of our publication—I mean, all of our publications are under the Wiz, which is wiz.io/blog, and people can read all of our research. Just today we are announcing a new one, so feel free to go and read there. And they also feel free to approach us on Twitter, the service, we have a Twitter account. We are open for, like, messages.

It's so easy to over-complicate life. To completely miss simple solutions because they are, well, just too easy! Now, hear me out: I'm not saying you should be lazy or lax. What I am saying is that there's no point in wasting a lot of time and energy on making life more complicated or difficult than it needs to be. The more we pare down to what matters most, the more time we have to intentionally invest in what's important. Two questions I ask regularly as I come up against a problem or just go throughout normal life are: 1. How can I make this easier? 2. What can I do to simplify this? I firmly believe that simplicity is a superpower. And while I have always focused on keeping things simple, the last three years of two pregnancies and fostering two other babies has caused me to simplify even more! In this episode, I share 8 ways I simplify my life. Jesse and I also talk about a favorite TV show, a documentary we're watching, what we're reading, and what's saving our lives. In This Episode [00:34] - Welcome to another episode of The Crystal Paine Show. [01:45] - It has been an eventful week, with a pretty significant amount of snow.

[13:15] - Let's talk about simplifying our lives instead of over-complicating them. Here are 8 ways I do this... [13:24] - I wear the same outfit over and over again. [14:09] - My make-up and hair routine. [16:00] - We keep meals really simple. [16:42] - We don't have many toys. [17:55] - We have the older kids be in charge of many aspects of their lives.

What is a trigger? Negative emotions. Angry outbursts. Non-centered behaviors. A person who pisses you off. A hurtful comment. Disrespectful treatment. And the list goes on… What causes a trigger? 1.    Trapped beliefs (limiting beliefs) that keep recreating a reality that you don't want. Eliminate the limiting belief and your reality will shift. Keep calibrating because there might be several of those limiting beliefs. i.e. “I don't matter.” “I am unlovable”… there are many more. 2.    A. Inner conflicts. We have lots of these. This is where you feel your situation is compromised. A. There is a part of your that wants to do something, but you cannot do it because there is a situation which disallows it to happen. B. There is something that is important to you, but you cannot do it because______ (your answers go here). These are many inner conflicts in the mind, and there are techniques to integrate them. 3.    You have unintegrated shadows which act up and act out through you. They are requesting awareness and resolution. Any time, we feel a trigger, we are not in alignment with higher Universal laws. That is why the pain. What is the mirror effect? Somebody or a something outside triggers us, you can notice a negative emotion in us, we feel angered, there is fear in us, it creates judgment in us, creates frustration in us…etc. This is one of the biggest missing pieces for people and without knowing how to decode these, there is no healing or evolution possible! This is what I have been teaching and saying for many years. I listed a few key points above and talked about them in this presentation. Whatever bothers us in others, it is in us in the unconscious. We need to learn to use the mirror effect not to blame and be a victim, but to find the real message in it and heal ourselves. Once you find the correct root cause to heal, your triggers vanish like they never existed. If we do not address them, we get sick, we create karma, we create adverse life circumstances, we shrink, we become timid and lose our self-esteem, we become self-sacrificial and angry, we develop health, money and relationship issues….and the list goes on. We have many, many of these unhealed and unresolved conflicts. Most of them are not evident and visible in the beginning. These are called layers. Reach out if you need help with these things. I also have online courses where I teach how to find the real issues, the root causes of the problem and what techniques to use so that the trigger goes away and you.My website: https://amindinstitute.com/ If you have a topic and wish to request an answer, write to us and we will create an episode for you.

Today's Real Estate Training and Coaching is part 4 of Real Estate Agents Ultimate Business (and Life) Plan. Prepare for Success! 7 P's of Real Estate: Proper Previous Planning Prevents Pitifully Poor Performance! 1 - You must complete your Pre Listing Package and it must be unique to you. Using your standard-issue, broker-created Pre Listing Package will not make you competitive enough! Having a digital one isn't good enough either. Digital is for special circumstances only. Use our proven Pre Listing Package, hard copy assembled and delivered exactly as we coach you. If you're not winning every time, your listing package isn't good enough. After you're done with your Pre Listing Package and have listened to the coaching calls about how to use it, get your Listing Presentation and Buyer Presentation done! 2 - Follow your ideal daily schedule. Your schedule should reflect your goals.   - 80% of your time should be spent on proactive lead generation.  - 20% of your time should be spent on transaction maintenance, closings, etc. - The only things that make you money in real estate are lead generation, furiously fast lead follow up, prequalifying, presenting, negotiating, and closing. If it's not on that list, you shouldn't be doing it. - Spend more time working IN your business (the above list) and less time working ON your business (everything not on the list). - You must have a consistent start and end time to your day. - Mornings are for setting new appointments; afternoons are for going on them! - Take control of your time! If you're not controlling it, someone or something else always will. Think about how you're closing for appointments for example. Are you asking "can we get together at 3 pm tomorrow?" or are you stating that you have "either 3 pm tomorrow or 5 pm Saturday, which is best for you?" Have pre-set times that you want to keep appointments and stick to them as much as possible. - Eliminate your use of the snooze button!

Ep104 [2/2]: Warren Mosler answers patron questions (also: government interface)

Activist #MMT - podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 2, 2022 90:57


Welcome to episode 104 of Activist #MMT. Today's part two of my two-part conversation with Warren Mosler, where he answers several patron questions. You'll find all them, with written responses from Warren (including data from FRED) in the show notes. In part one Warren talked about how his ideas for MMT came partially from a love of tinkering and, more broadly, a desire to understand complex systems. Those systems can be physical, such as controlling electricity with wires, batteries, light bulbs, and soup cans as a child, or race cars and large passenger ferry boats as an adult. These systems can also be conceptual, such as by playing chess and bridge as a teenager. Before we begin part two, a few notes: First, a country trading raw resources such as coal, for highly processed products such as televisions, is, as Warren says, not inherently a bad thing. What's bad, as illuminated by the work of Fadhel Kaboub and others, is when a country is coerced into making a trade they don't want to make. Second, Warren gives many examples of how government's interface with its citizens is poor, from anxious cops during routine traffic stops, to regulators making blatant mistakes that can only be undone through inordinate – and very expensive – red tape. I believe strongly, and as best as I understand, that these incidents are symptoms of the larger problem that the rich bribe our so-called elected representatives, and lock the poor out of their government in myriad ways. The poor have no avenues to stand up to these small injustices, so the rich have no incentive to stop this terrible behavior. And finally, Warren describes one of these incidents, when his company was extorted by the IRS for a million dollars, to resolve a blatant error by the IRS. Like student loans, of which ninety percent are owned by the US Department of Education, this is another example of a currency issuer demanding money that it clearly does not need in any practical sense. And now, back to my conversation with Warren Mosler. Enjoy. Patron questions, with written answers by Warren Mosler Nathan Becker While it is true that the federal government is a net interest payer and higher interest rates would lead to the government paying more in interest income; isn't it also true that the majority of Americans do not hold government debt as an asset that would earn them higher income but hold mortgages and other debt instead which have a negative impact with higher interest rates? So wouldn't higher interest rates be less inflationary given these circumstances in the US? What would be your recommendation for controlling inflation while also stimulating economic growth in such a situation? Warren's response: Households are net savers https://imgur.com/XMdOUKk.jpg (For much more on Nathan's question, including more detailed responses by Warren, please see the bottom of next week's interview, episode 105, which is a written interview with Nathan [the link will be made available here on Sunday, January ninth]). Susan Eldridge, question one of two If we have to tax to give value to the USD, what is the best way to to ensure everyone shares this tax obligation fairly? Warren: Free healthcare, Free education, Job Guarantee, 0 rate policy, property tax, high quality low cost public transportation, etc. Susan: What about taxing corporations? Regressive- it's paid by the consumer Susan: Can we reduce wealth inequality by a wealth tax? Warren: Maybe some, but easier/more effective to eliminate the source as per my proposals Susan: Since we already have progressive taxation isn't the problem due to tax loopholes? Would enforcing tax laws already on the books reduce wealth inequality? Warren: Probably not. And more important, the real compliance costs are something like 15% of gdp and those real resources could otherwise be for the benefit of all. Ganesh Balamitran When the Govt spends (say to create infrastructure), doesn't it create new assets in exchange for the spending? Warren: Spending adds $ to bank reserve accounts and those $ are new net financial assets. Ganesh: Could we say the budget is balanced with these new assets that are created against the liabilities of the Treasuries issued. Warren: You can say the accounts balance but 'the budget' has its own definition. Ganesh: Does it need to be balanced with revenues (taxes or pay-fors)? Warren: Not per se. Ganesh: Where (in its books) does the government value and list all the new assets created? (If we spend billions to educate our youth, those human resources are also new assets worth billions to the economy, if not more). Warren: That would be on the balance sheet which it generally doesn't prepare or present. Ganesh: Just trying to see if there is another way to work around the 'Balancing the Budget' argument. A friend of mine (who I introduced to MMT) asked me this question, so I thought I would pose it here. He felt like if we could keep some of the sound economics framework by speaking of all the new assets that come from the spending, it would be more palatable to people and politicians. Warren: Doesn't work that way, sorry. Advait What does Warren think of the idea to eliminate all sub-national taxes? Instead of states, cities, counties, localities, etc collecting local taxes, all of them just submit budgets to the national govt and the govt gives them whatever money they demonstrate that they need. Warren: I've proposed those taxes be eliminated and the states get per capita annual grants sufficient to cover desired state and local budgets. Advait: Get rid of all the many layers of sub-national tax collecting apparatus and staffing. The national govt would have sufficient budget analysts and auditors to make sure all the budgets are reasonable and sufficient for the well-being of local citizens. Warren: The per capita formula simplifies that as well. Advait: There could be a national "standards of public service" which dictates and mandates all the public services to be provided to all citizens for their well-being and flourishing. No more instances of localities going bankrupt or defaulting. No more blatantly unfair local tax codes. Eliminate all sales tax except as needed to encourage socially healthy behavior (like taxes on cigarettes, alcohol, yachts, luxury items, unhealthy foods, etc.) Also eliminate all local taxation to fund public schools; all schools get the same money per child from the national govt (perhaps adjusted for local cost-of-living variations). Imagine the elimination of all the time and effort that goes into calculating, paying and processing the myriad of local taxes. Warren; your thoughts? Warren: Yes, as above. Advait: And many thanks to you, Warren, for your tireless efforts to spread the word on MMT! Great work! Warren: Thanks!!! Greg Olsen Since the MMT lens reveals that foreign exports are a real cost for the exporting countries, why do sovereign governments place foreign trade so highly? Warren: Their exporters are in control of the narrative maybe? Greg: In Australia, where I live, the performance of our economy is always predicated on a favourable export market. This is never challenged by politicians nor economics media journalists. Why is this so? Warren: How powerful politically are your exporters? Greg: I would imagine that exports are OK when a sovereign country's needs have been fully met through their own production of goods and services. Does that align with the MMT view of the value of exports? Warren: Yes. Exports are the cost of imports. Kevin Shea Ask Warren to comment on the velocity of money vis-a-vis the money supply and inflation, and the effects fiscal spending has on the money supply, the velocity of money and inflation. Warren: No need to do that. Just count bodies in the JG pool and decide if it's too many or too few, then adjust fiscal accordingly. Kevin: Ask Warren to please provide data on his interpretation of the effects of rate increases through the interest income channel, i.e., specifics on the amounts of interest income pumped into the economy with a rate increase versus the slow down effects of the same rate increase on lending and the economy. Warren: Those are the propensity to spend from interest income. My Fed contact said they are pretty close to equal, but that he believed they may be a bit higher for borrowers. Susan Eldridge, question two of two A little euro centered but my other question has to do with the oft repeated refrain that other countries pay much more in taxes (eg Denmark, Sweden, Norway) but they get more social services. So we should do the same here. But while they issue their own currencies even though they belong to EU (I think) they are pegged to the euro so is that why they pay much higher taxes? Warren: No, it's because of the higher public spending on goods and services, including healthcare. Tax liabilities create sellers so gov can buy. More buying requires more tax liabilities, all else equal.

unReceptive: A Better Way to Sell, Lead, and Influence by Tom Stanfill About the Book: A large and growing number of people are distracted, overwhelmed, and isolated today and this has resulted in a steep decline in receptivity to another sales pitch, call, or email. And the harder you try to sell, the greater the resistance. Unreceptive reveals the surprisingly simple and refreshing solution to this problem that is a sharp contrast to traditional approaches to selling, revealing why the receptivity of an audience is far more important than the power of the message. In this groundbreaking new guide, Tom Stanfill shares his proven methodology, road-tested over decades by hundreds of thousands of sales professionals, workshop participants, and industry experts, on how to convert even the most disinterested prospects and customers. This book will show you how to: Eliminate resistance and make selling easy and enjoyable, while experiencing a deeper sense of purpose. Overcome the five receptivity barriers – the customer's perception of you, opening a “closed” door, uncovering the unfiltered truth, changing beliefs, and motivating the customer to take action. Adopt the tested and true operating system used by the most persuasive and influential people. When you shift the focus from crafting the perfect message to creating receptivity, you flip the entire art of selling on its head and form lasting relationships that set you and your customers up for lasting success. About the Author: Tom Stanfill is CEO and co-founder of ASLAN Training, a global sales enablement company appearing nine consecutive years in the SellingPower Top 20. Since 1996, ASLAN has worked with many Fortune 500 companies, training more than 100,000 sellers and leaders in over 35 countries.

Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom. Today, we're diving into time management. This can be a big topic that spans many areas of your business, but that means it's just that important. Let's break it down.   When we think about time management, it's important to avoid ‘analysis paralysis.' This is a loop where you get caught preparing to the point where you can't execute. Being so terrified of failure and making a mistake that you're unable to get off the ground will hinder your progress. You can't continue waiting for a sign–it's time to get it done.    A great way to start moving through procrastination is to shorten the amount of time you have. By removing ourselves from the annual mindset–12 months=a year–to a 12-week mindset, you create an urgency for yourself to get whatever you have to do off the ground.    Key Takeaways   Analysis Paralysis, or planning until you can't execute, will halt your progress. Don't be afraid of failure! Eliminate procrastination by allowing yourself less time to do so.  Shorten your annual mindset from 12 months to 12 weeks.

Triggers and the Mirror Effect

What is a trigger? Negative emotions. Angry outbursts. Non-centered behaviors. A person who pisses you off. A hurtful comment. Disrespectful treatment. And the list goes on… What causes a trigger?1.    Trapped beliefs (limiting beliefs) that keep recreating a reality that you don't want. Eliminate the limiting belief and your reality will shift. Keep calibrating because there might be several of those limiting beliefs. i.e. “I don't matter.” “I am unlovable”… there are many more.  2.    A. Inner conflicts. We have lots of these. This is where you feel your situation is compromised. A. There is a part of your that wants to do something, but you cannot do it because there is a situation which disallows it to happen.  B. There is something that is important to you, but you cannot do it because______ (your answers go here).  These are many inner conflicts in the mind, and there are techniques to integrate them.  3.    You have unintegrated shadows which act up and act out through you. They are requesting awareness and resolution. Any time, we feel a trigger, we are not in alignment with higher Universal laws. That is why the pain. What is a mirror effect? Somebody or a something outside triggers us, you can notice a negative emotion in us, we feel angered, there is fear in us, it creates judgment in us, creates frustration in us…etc.This is one of the biggest missing pieces for people and without knowing how to decode these, there is no healing or evolution possible!This is what I have been teaching and saying for many years. I listed a few key points above and talked about them in this presentation. Whatever bothers us in others, it is in us in the unconscious. We need to learn to use the mirror effect not to blame and be a victim, but to find the real message in it and heal ourselves.  Once you find the correct root cause to heal, your triggers vanish like they never existed.If we do not address them, we get sick, we create karma, we create adverse life circumstances, we shrink, we become timid and lose our self-esteem, we become self-sacrificial and angry, we develop health, money and relationship issues….and the list goes on.We have many, many of these unhealed and unresolved conflicts. Most of them are not evident and visible in the beginning. These are called layers. Reach out if you need help with these things. I also have online courses where I teach how to find the real issues, the root causes of the problem and what techniques to use so that the trigger goes away and you.

Discussing Success Women Think Differently by Valorie Burton Major Points from this Episode: Each person defines what success looks like to them, and we should never compare one success to another. Your thought process gives you the advantage to achieving your goals, believe you can do it. Being keenly aware of your thoughts will push you in a successful direction. Failing at something in life and/or business doesn't make YOU a failure.  Your identity isn't defined by your success or failure. Watch how you speak to yourself, you are either being a pessimist or an optimist, and you are driving yourself away from your goals or toward your goals. Excuses are lies.  Making excuses for the things that happen to you gives control of your life to someone else and you begin to play a victim role in your life. Actionable Strategies:   Ask yourself every day, “What did I fail at today?”  This will help you numb yourself to the word failure.  Write down each area you failed and how you will try again tomorrow. Eliminate excuses for the things that happen to you, continue to practice 100% ownership.

Nonviolent Communication is one of the most powerful ways of speaking with people that I have ever come across. It eliminates useless strategies like judgment and proving yourself right and instead gives you absolutely tactical techniques to get the things you need for happiness for yourself and your interlocutor.   Listen on: iTunes Spotify Stitcher NVC is not a new, gimmicky set of dictum. It boils down the philosophies of Stoicism, the psychological approaches of CBT and cognitive psychology. Marshall Rosenberg was a psychologist trained in the classical analytic, but found it unsatisfying and for the most part, unhelpful. Marshall Rosenberg Masterclass on NVC.  Speaking Giraffe vs. Speaking Jackal NVC is not really a theory or a guide to behavior--it is a language!!! Giraffes only hear feelings & needs, never thoughts Jackal language is about judging, criticizing, analyzing, moralizing and accusing.

The System There are essentially two major parts--The four component speech creation and emergency empathy   The Four Components Observation without Evaluation Avoid generalization, only specifics (generally good to avoid the past as well) Separate the observation from the evaluation or better yet, eliminate the evaluation You are the most inconsiderate person--you are always late   Feeling Internal emotional states vs. thoughts/judgment If you can replace I feel with I think--then it is not a feeling If I feel is followed by: that, like, or as if then it is not a feeling If I feel is followed by a name or pronoun (whether he, you, or I), then it is not a feeling Eliminate the feel--and see if it still works I feel sad to I'm sad works.
