Alex Budak is an author and faculty member at Berkeley Haas School of Business. He recently wrote a book called "Becoming a Changemaker."   If there is anything I know about fertility patients it's that you all know a lot about being on a journey that often involves embracing change. You become more resilient, and you follow a "growth" mindset. You cling to hope and you let it lead the way forward. It's no surprise that I would have a social entrepreneur and changemaker on the show.    You have a lot in common with what Alex teaches and writes about: "Developing a changemaker mindset often requires holding two seemingly contradictory traits simultaneously: Having a strong personal vision yet being open to collaborating with others. Employing drive and determination to push through barrier after barrier yet knowing when to step back and recharge."    Today we're talking about how to become a Changemaker on your fertility journey. Here are three traits he believes a changemaker has: 1. There's always another way 2. Existing at the edges 3. Learned Hopefulness / Learned Optimism You can learn more about Alex and get his book here: https://www.alexbudak.com/ Do you have questions about IVF?Click here to join Dr. Aimee for The IVF Class.

Employing a Non-Jewish Maid on Shabbat

The Shulhan Aruch (244:5) rules that it is permissible to hire a Non-Jew as a personal tailor or secretary, on a yearly basis. Even though the Non-Jew might make the suit or write the letters on Shabbat, it is still permissible, since the Jew doesn't care when he does it. There is no benefit to the Jew if the employee does the work on Shabbat; he is paying him an annual retainer. This leniency is based on the opinion of the Rambam. The Shulhan Aruch then brings down a "yesh omrim", the Raavad, prohibiting such an arrangement. The Raavad argues that if the Non-Jew performs the task on Shabbat, the Jew benefits the availability of the employee on Sunday to carry out new tasks. Nevertheless, the Shulhan Aruch himself holds that, in principle, it is permitted. However, this leniency only applies to cases in which the Non-Jew is performing work on his own premises. A Non-Jew is never allowed to do work in the Jew's house. Therefore, the Mishna Berura (Rav Yisrael Meir Kagan of Radin, 1839-1933) rules that maids are not allowed to violate the Shabbat in the home of their Jewish employer. Even if they would be paid on a per-task basis, which is not the usual arrangement, it is still prohibited because of M'arit Ayin . There are some poskim that even prohibit work done by the maid for her own personal benefit, e.g. doing her own laundry. However, clearly, a maid is not allowed to do the laundry of her Jewish employer in their home on Shabbat, even if she is only doing it then to clear her schedule. A maid is allowed to do work in a prohibited way that could have been performed by in a permissible fashion by the Jew. For example, she is allowed to wash dishes with hot water, since the Jew could also have washed them with cold water.Those that employ help in the house must be very careful to know the parameters of what work is permissible for them to do and what is forbidden.SUMMARYIt is permitted to hire a Non-Jewish tailor or secretary on an annual basis to perform work on demand in the Non-Jew's premises.It is never permitted for a Non-Jewish maid to do prohibited work in the home of the Jew on Shabbat.A Non-Jewish maid is allowed to wash dishes with hot water on Shabbat in the home of a Jew.

Corey Frank (01:20): And here we are. Welcome to another episode of the Market Dominance Guys with Corey Frank and the sage of sales, the prophet of profits, the hawking of Hawking, does that make sense? And we have, Oren, I'm sorry I don't have any nicknames I've rehearsed in my shower for the last few weeks for you, we have Oren Klaff, best-selling author of Pitch Anything, Flip the Script, and Sales Connoisseur. I don't know, that's all I got. So welcome, Chris, we got to a great special guest in the hotseat today and what brings the three of us together? What could possibly top the last podcast we did? Oh I don't know, a short six, eight months ago or so. We probably have something to announce, do we not, Oren, Chris, that we could talk to a little later in the podcast? Chris Beall (02:07): I think we do. For one thing, let me just point out, I recommend some sales books but I don't force any of them down anybody's throat except for Flip the Script. And the reason I do is Flip the Script says, "Don't force this book down somebody's throat," and I just love the delicious irony of utterly failing to apply every single principle in this book while pushing this book on people. I don't know, the dynamic tension in that just works for me. Corey Frank (02:36): It's like don't push this button [inaudible 00:02:39]. Chris Beall (02:39): Yeah, it's like peeps, look, if you have only two books you can read in this coming year and for some of you that is a stretch, read Flip the Script and learn how to do simple things like get a little status alignment going and learn how to flash roll. I'm still trying to teach our people how to flash roll. They tend to want to drift into teaching at that point. Learn how to flash roll. And then when you're done with all that and you realize that you're not going to do all this, that you're a manager and your people are going to do it, pick up Helen Fanucci's Love Your Team and go and read that, and you put those two together, and I don't know, I'm not going to be responsible for you failing, I'm just not going to be responsible. Oren Klaff (03:18): In the military, those super sauced up guys, so calm guys, they have these banana clips they put in the clip, and then they shoot the 28 bullets or where the 30 bullets are that clip, and then they flip it right around, and then they shove the next clip in because it's already attached. I feel like Flip the Script and then Love Your Team, you shove that in, you shoot all those 30 bullets, you're out, then flip it over, and then Love Your Team flips in. Corey Frank (03:42): I love it. That's right. Well, hey, I thought getting you two fine gentlemen together, here we are coming up on the end of another quarter and the end of another year coming up in Q4, and Oren, we always talk about no neediness, right? I think what you've hit me over the head for the years we've known each other. Chris, certainly that's what you talk about on this podcast many, many times. (04:04): But here we are coming up at the end of the year and so I wanted to grab you two gentlemen and talk, certainly maybe about a pending event that we have coming up, but also what do you do so we don't just drop the price and create all these insulting kind of promotions to finish the year strong but still have a little pipeline left going into Q1. So, from a neediness perspective or what are you going to think to that? Oren Klaff (04:28): I like to think in visuals. There was this movie, The Perfect Storm, towards the end they're like going up this wave and however, they shot this wave is like a thousand times bigger than the boat, and they're going straight up it. The captain's telling the kid at the wheel to hold because he wants to turn it, and he's going, "Hold!" And they're climbing up this wave and it's just terrifying. He wants to turn, "Hold, hold, hold." That's what I think is like [inaudible 00:04:52], is you want to turn the boat, you want to turn around, you want to run to safety, and you need Corey, or me, or Chris get saying, "Hold, don't turn the wheel, just hold." Right? And you get yourself in this impossible situation in which there's no possible way to get out. But you have somebody who's been in that situation saying, "Hold, don't be needy, don't turn the wheel." And then it becomes, "Now! Turn the wheel." (05:23): But you have to be able to hold through that period where most other people would cave, collapse, run away scared, start discounting. So, if you could remember, hold your position. If you built the position but then you're afraid of the position you built and back away from it, you haven't done any good. You cannot be needy. I don't care if this is the last account on earth for you, because the other side of being needy is it definitely will not close. You have to hold strong, hold. Get a tattoo on your forearm. I mean, I'm not advocating that you get a tattoo, but go ahead and get a tattoo that says hold, based on this podcast and Corey will sign it for you. I don't want my name on it because I don't know who you're married to, but you know. Corey Frank (06:15): All right. Chris, from your perspective, you have obviously ConnectAndSell. You have a weapon that brings more prospects to your doorstep, more than they can even handle. So, what do you tell your clients, your fellow CEOs, your fellow CROs, CEOs, VPs of sales, when they come to this time of the year that, "Hey, I can bring you the prospects, I can bring the conversations to you, but be careful you don't do x." Chris Beall (06:42): Well, one of the things is there's a mathematical thing, right? It's like driving on a one-lane road. You have a problem. And that is if anybody's slow in front of you, then you got to decide to either be as slow as they are or go off-road. And sometimes you got to go off-road, and sometimes you got to go up the wave, and sometimes you got to hold and hold and hold. A really good idea, and it's getting a little late, but a good idea is to just, if you widen a little, you widen a lot. That is, if your portfolio is a little bit bigger, it's a lot bigger. And that's just the way it is. With risk management, we all think, "Oh, if I add one more opportunity to my one opportunity, I've reduced the risk by something." You don't know what it is. (07:29): You've cut it in half, my friend. But you add a third one and you actually cut it two less than a third. Now, you've cut it to one over three to the third. Ooh, you've cut it to by 26, 27th. Life gets a lot better because you only need one lane to go down. Now, do you need it or not need it? Well, you might need it but you better not act like you need it because it's like Oren drives the best cars. And when Oren shooting a gap between two cars or he's making a decision to pass in someplace that's a little tiny bit marginal or whatever, once he makes that decision, he's got to actually hold that line. He can't kind of half unmake the decision part way into whatever it is that that maneuver is, right? (08:19): There's just a rule in all, I'll call them ballistic acts. A ballistic act is where the performance outcome, the thing you want, depends on what came before, therefore what came before, therefore what came before. It starts somewhere and once you commit to it you're really screwed unless you go through with it. I used to be, Corey, and Oren keeps trying to forget, I used to be a very serious rock climber mountaineer, and there's a word used in climbing and there's a word that's used as an adjective and it's used as a noun. As an adjective, the word committed. That's a really committed route means once you start you better finish it or you're toast. You start that move, you got to finish the move. That's like the same thing. It's like look, once you're here and you're in a committed situation, you have to ignore all outcomes and you simply have to go; that's just a truth of the world. Oren Klaff (09:16): And so I think what happens is ultimately we tell people run the process. And so if they go, "I forgot the process," or, "What process?" Then there's a problem. But if you have a process and you just go, yeah, outcome independent, don't be needy, run the process, trust the process, and then if you don't like still the nervousness that brings with it, then have Chris bring you lots of other pipelines. So, we run that process in a very high stakes, high tension situation where there's a couple of leads, we got to close two out of four. And it's very challenging. (09:54): That's where we learned this never be needy, but if we know Chris is going to bring us another 18, then we're flipping. We come to meetings in T-shirts, we say things we wouldn't, we take risks we otherwise wouldn't take. We come late, we come early, we do what we want because we're like, "Yeah, that didn't work out. Let's not do that again. But still, Hey Chris, bring that wheel barrel over here. Jumps some more leads off." We just figured out a couple of things that are not going to work, so the great thing is if you have a process you can run it, that allows you to hold and stay the course. But if you can run a process and you've got pipeline, there's a name for that. (10:29): I'm not sure how it's pronounced in German, or Swiss, or whatever you speak, Chris, but in English we call it a business. Where you have prospects, you have a process, you've got a technique in which you can close them, and then you also have new leads coming in case something goes wrong, you don't close the lead that you wanted to. That's called a business. Corey Frank (10:51): Oren, talk a little bit about with neediness, we've had a number of conversations about this, you need some status with that neediness. And I think that if you built up a good status in your previous conversations with this prospect, with this company, with this executive team, you're expecting that status is going to hold, right? But as you've always talked and you've written about, it's temporary, and so you need to establish it throughout. And it seems like a lot of sales reps will abandon all that status they've worked to hold and maintain at the last month of the year, the last few weeks of the year to try to get a deal. Oren Klaff (11:29): Yeah, I think there's one way to address this. Okay, yes, we're having an event... Sorry, what was your question? (11:42): Let me try to run this down. So, Chris, Corey, and I said let's have an event and it was in June and it became July and then it became August. Back then in August, August we could've had any event, like Chris and Corey debate politics and crypto, and that would've been a good event. Then it became September, end of the year, busy. We didn't do the event. So finally we got serious. We said it's now. (12:06): All right, December and we're still having an event. And then Corey pointed out, it better be really good if we're going to have an event in December. So yes, we're having a really good event in December. Actually, it's too good because when you hear about it. The event's too good when I don't want to speak at it, I just want to go to it and benefit from the event. Because like hey, my business can use the event, but I'm actually in the event and part of it, but I'm too busy to do what I'm doing at the event for our own business. So, this thing is amazing and I really want to be there. So status. Oren Klaff (13:32): I think what happens is salespeople very carefully and intuitively curate their status going in. And so they appoint themselves well, they give a good presentation, but now you're sort of a move out of your domain into their domain and people come out of nowhere that know more than you. It's like a video game. You're going up higher levels and bigger bosses come out. My favorite analogy, as you know, is you think you're fighting the boss to win the level and this giant foot comes out of nowhere and crushes the boss you're fighting, right? The big boss cares so little about... He just crushes his own team, and what's going on here? And that's where salespeople lose their status is where somebody who has much stronger frame, much more expertise, much more knowledge, and actually controls the contract comes out of nowhere. And that's where status goes to die. (14:29): And I think it's not a status event, but we're definitely covering how to hold your status not at the beginning, because there's like no teaching about status that you need at the beginning, right? Yeah, I dress good. I talk politely. I have a presentation. Everybody can hold it together at the beginning until the stress comes on. And then the things we're talking about, never be needy, hold your status together, make sure you've got pipeline, widen your lane, stuff that Chris and Corey know how to do really come together once you're later in the deal and there's real stressors. (15:05): And if you think about it, last thing then I'll turn back over to you, you're at the beginning of a deal all the time, right? There's a lot more first downs than there are fourth downs, I think. I'm not sure. We'll have to check that. But anyway, you're at the beginning of deals all the time and so you're good at the beginning. Chris and I had a call with Andreson, one of the big venture firms today, which is great, but how often are you on a call with Andreson Horowitz versus on a call with somebody about something? So, you're good at beginnings, but how good are you at controlling those later stages when status falls apart, you fall apart? Chris Beall (15:41): [inaudible 00:15:41]. That remind me of a story by the way. Corey Frank (15:42): Go ahead, Chris. Chris Beall (15:43): There's a story [foreign language 00:15:44]. Oren Klaff (15:44): A story about our event? Chris Beall (15:46): Yeah, this is a story [inaudible 00:15:49]. This is the kind of thing you learn at this event is to do what's in the story. So, first of all, this event is so important, I might actually show up. I might not because I have a very dear family member who's having surgery the day before and might need my care, and I'll be approximately 1400 miles away, but I could be there. The story is sometimes you have to be somewhere else in New York. You find yourself at the end, you don't even know it's going to be the end. So this particular story, I was called by the general counsel of the General Electric Company who told me, "I need to talk to you and I need to talk to you tomorrow." (16:23): And so it was a Sunday. I went and did my usual thing. I was living in Denver, went down to the airport, asked them at the red carpet club where I was going. They told me. I got on an airplane, I got off, I went into a building up there in Connecticut. And the general counsel of General Electric put me in a room, a big boardroom, the one right under the CEO's office, right under Jack Law's office. And he sat down and he dressed like Mr. Rogers, which I think was one of his best tricks. And he literally pounded the table, which I thought was hilarious. (16:54): I almost laughed out loud, but I held it. "You are destroying the General Electric Company." Now, that's a case where you're kind of at the end because this had to do with a huge renewal opportunity for 11 out of the 12 general electric companies. Now, what are you going to do there? You must have something wired into you that allows you to hold your status. And I have a fondness for humor. I just said, "Well, there must be some amount of money you'd like to pay me to get me to stop destroying the General Electric Company." It's an example. Oren Klaff (17:29): That's where he pressed the button underneath this desk, and security came in, escorted you out the building. Chris Beall (17:34): No, no. He started laughing. And you know what? We ended up doing the deal I wanted to do. Oren Klaff (17:39): Oh, I have a great story about the other call that I have to be on right now [inaudible 00:17:48]. The good news, well, so the bad news is it's not a good story. The good news, it's a very short one. Corey, can you run down the dates of the event and a little bit of information for people and then I will call both of you in a while. Corey Frank (18:00): Yes. We are going to do this on December 7th and December 8th coming up here in a very short period of time. And what we're going to do is we're going to put you and your existing sales process through the ringer. We're going to take and rip up your sales script, turn it into a screenplay, and start from scratch building up a brand new December Q4 sales machine for you with a screenplay that's tailored to your business. And Chris's team, Oren's team, our team, the Branch 49 team, we're going to walk you through step by step through this Pitch Anything formula, through the best practices and how we create a screenplay, and apply it to the industry and business. So the best part, Chris, right, Oren, as you know, is we're going to perfect your pitch and you're going to practice it. (18:45): If this is your first time at Fight Club, you will fight. If it's your first time dialing with ConnectAndSell, you will dial and we're going to jump right on the phones right alongside you. And by the end of the event, you're going to have a brand new pitch process. You're going to have a brand new screenplay that drives qualified leads back to you that are ready to buy. And we are going to guarantee that you're going to close enough meetings to at least equal the cost of the event, or Chris's team, orange team, our team, we're going to work with you until you do. That's a pretty good guarantee, would you say, Chris? Chris Beall (19:20): That's crazy. Corey, has anybody ever in the history of, I don't know, life on Earth, have they ever actually done this particular kind of event? This exact thing. Corey Frank (19:32): I recall when you visited our sales team at my previous company, you swooped in with the jump boots and one or two of your cohorts, and you walked us through a mini version of this. I think this was one of the origins, I know you've had others, of the flight school because as soon as we started utilizing the weapon of ConnectAndSell, and I think it was the first monosyllabic construction we put together, you said, "Stop. What are you saying? Stop. Don't ever say that again." (20:00): And you completely deconstructed and then built up our screenplay to an effective breakthrough screenplay that changed the trajectory of our business. And hence, since many thousands of folks in flight school later, many thousands of folks at our Pitch Anything events later, many thousands of events or phone calls that we've made here at Branch 49, I think we're pretty dialed in on how to do cold outreach. Chris Beall (20:27): And it's fascinating to me because some people don't like that word, cold outreach. They think it implies, well, I don't know, it's December and it's cold or something like that. Or maybe you don't like people, you're so cold when you're reaching out. Of course, it's technical. It's a term of art. It means outreach to people you haven't spoken with before. And if you have half a brain in your head, these are people that you would like to speak with. You have a hypothesis and that is a conversation with anybody on that list of people, anybody in that target set has a reasonable shot of moving forward to something better than where you are than talking to a random person. That's not a big hypothesis. That's an important one. What's so interesting to me, and this is what this event is going to be about, is it doesn't have anything specifically to do with what you're selling. (21:15): It has to do with one universal truth, which is you're speaking to a human being and that is bedrock. That's the thing I always come back to and somebody goes, "Well, does it work in this industry? That industry?" We don't want to come to this thing like that because what we do is we sell something so high value, customized, so bespoke, so thought through, that nothing that you guys could teach us or that we could practice in an event like this could possibly fit us. (21:46): But you know what? It's kind of like a pair of gloves. As long as I know you have fingers, even if you're missing one or say, you have an extra one because well, maybe you do. Maybe somebody killed your father and they should prepare to die, but you still have got something that pretty much looks like a hand, it's going to fit pretty much in a glove and you're about to go pretty much out into 20 below and you're better off with gloves than with no gloves. You're going into a world where it's better to have something on your hands. And that's really where we're taking it, that's what's cold, is that world you're going into. I think it's going to be quite a fascinating experience for folks. I dearly do hope I can physically show up. It's extremely inconvenient. Corey Frank (22:32): Well, it's your weapon. It is your weapon and probably a member or two of your team. So, ConnectAndSell will be represented fully in spirit and in practice. And you're mentioning cold outreach, Chris, I think maybe we could finish with this concept because we've talked about it a lot. I know the esteemed Jerry Hale posted something on LinkedIn several months ago about this concept of survivorship bias and particularly how germane that is probably to Q4. Listen, we've always done a discount at the end of Q4. We've always extended our contracts for another month to allow our folks to make it easier to jump on board. So, maybe just talk a little bit about not just cold outreach in the approach, but how survivorship bias really kind of diminishes your opportunity to grow as a sales organization because of that's how we've always done it this way. Chris Beall (23:25): Survivorship bias is funny because everybody I think, I hope they know the story. It was invented as a concept looking at the damage done to bombers that were flying over Germany in World War II. And the ones that came back that where they had the holes in them, what they were doing is basically saying, "Well, this is where they got hit. We should put armor there." And that's incorrect. This is where they got hit and they made it back. So, those places don't need armor. Put more armor in the places where they got hit and didn't make it back. (24:00): Now, it's a little actually more challenging to figure out what that really means, but anything's better than putting armor in a place that you didn't need it, because we know it always adds weight. So, when we come to the end of a quarter or a year and we're looking at last year and we're going, "Well this worked last year." What worked is like a plane coming back, it "worked." (24:26): Do we really know which part of the plane went down? Or the ones that didn't work and are maybe it was one of those that would've made it? Did we even select correctly which deals to focus on and where to put our armor, so to speak? Survivorship bias is the most insidious, I think, of the intellectual failings that we embrace in groups. So, groupthink is bad, but groupthink is amplified by survivorship bias because we can all see the same thing and seeing as believing. We reason in very simple ways about these situations and the simplest way is let's do what we did last year. Corey Frank (25:06): Yeah, absolutely. Well, we've talked about false positive versus false negatives and how most organizations... I think we talked about this with Jeb when we were on the phone, is that how most organizations look at false positives and they should be, similar to survivorship bias, looking at the false negatives, correct? Chris Beall (25:22): Yeah, false negatives kill businesses. False positive, they cost you a little something, you have to do some work that you throw away. Dying is not as attractive, frankly, as doing some work you throw away. Now, the fact of the matter is management of ignorance is what it's all about. And it's really interesting. If you want to hold, you want to do it what Oren said, which is hold, one of the things you oddly have to do to be so committed is you have to embrace your ignorance. You have to admit you don't actually know based on the information you're getting right now, what your reaction should be. (25:58): And since you don't know, your best course action is probably to be proactive, to run your process. P-R-O, as the beginning of both of those words because your lack of knowledge is actually your savior, in this case. It's like, "I don't know, so I may as well do what we decided to do, whatever that happens to be." And it is that change of course. It's like, "well, what if we offer them a discount right now?" I have a couple of them right now. I've got a couple of deals that are... One of them, one of my very best customers will expire at the end of the day. I'm sitting here talking to you. Corey Frank (26:38): That's right. That's right. Well, I'm sure the rep on the deal is... Chris Beall (26:42): I am the rep. Corey Frank (26:43): Oh, you're the rep, too. Even better. Chris Beall (26:44): Well, we have another principle here, and I think a lot of people practice it, but we're pretty hard over here at ConnectAndSell. We all sell from the front lines and we don't sell the special deals. We just sell deals. And in fact, I sell the most experimental deals. The ones that are the weirdest. People turn their nose up at and go, "Why'd you do that?" Because I can endure the most reputational damage without being damaged. Being the CEO, as long as you hold and people make fun of you like, "Oh, that's a stupid deal. That was idiotic." It's like, yeah, well, it's part of my job is to explore the possible on behalf of all of us. Som I get to go to the top of some mountain that turns out there was nothing over on the other side that was worthwhile, but I'm kind of a sunk cost, right? As the CEO, you kind of a sunk cost. (27:30): So, we sell from the front lines, but one of the reasons we do it is that there's a hidden set of signals that go on in a company that cause reps to waiver. And it's this thing that says, "Hey, do the right thing in the deal. Go do the right thing." We all know what that is. Oh, and by the way, make the number no matter what. It's like those are a little bit at odds with you there and that's fine. I mean, dynamic tension is the essence of good stories, but at some point you have to decide what are we going to do as a company? What's our real goal? Was it to make this number? (28:07): It's very rare, by the way, that making a specific number on a specific date makes all the difference. I'll never forget my eldest, and I think I told this story once in a previous episode, we were in a meeting and everybody's talking about it, making this number on this date and all these numbers, numbers, numbers, numbers. And we came out and my eldest kid, Serenity, at the time said, "So, dad, I have a question." I said, "what's the question?" She said, "Well, do they think by talking about the numbers, they're going to change them?" (28:43): And I said, "Yes, they do." And she thought for a while said, "That's really sad," and walked off and led me over to Starbucks for hot chocolate. Talking about the stuff is actually a bad habit. Talking about what's going to close, talking about when it's going to close, talk, talk, talk, talks a bad habit. Go run the process and take your spare time and fill up with other opportunities because they'll make you stronger. Corey Frank (29:09): One of my good friends, our good friends, Robert Vera always talks about you can't out exercise your fork. So, as much as you want to do a lot of activity, you got to make sure that the biggest constraint in your system is tackled and it takes... You're a mathematician and a physician. It takes 3,500 calories to burn every pound of fat. These are the laws of thermodynamics. The same for celestial mathematics and the laws of physics. And those exist in client acquisition and revenue. And you have to eliminate that biggest constraint in your system, as we've said time and again. And for most folks, it's establishing that trust-based conversation game at scale and no conversations, no product-market fit, no conversations, no core Q4 achievement, no ticket, no laundry, right? And so if you're not doing five to six pitches in your tam, as you said many times, guess what? Somebody else is. Chris Beall (30:05): And those are the good ones. Corey Frank (30:05): [inaudible 00:30:07]. Chris Beall (30:07): Most are the good ones. It's prima facie evidence that they're good. They're actually happening. [inaudible 00:30:16]. And it's so fascinating when folks talk about the quality versus quantity thing, and there's all these sort of notions that people have like, "Oh, if I just think harder about the quality, then there'll be better meetings." Embrace your ignorance. Your ignorance is your friend. Freedom is your friend. Just go in knowing nothing and have a conversation. (30:38): I mean, you know one thing. You have a range of capabilities, you have a range of things that you could bring to bear. You're representing your company, that's why you're called a rep. You're representing what your company's capable of doing. Now, you know what that range of capabilities are, but you really don't know where the problems for the other person or the challenges, the gaps where they are. Okay, your ignorance is your friend. That's what enables you to be curious and ask those curiosity-based questions. And when you're needy, you want to see where neediness shows up first. Neediness kills more deals in discovery, then it kills at the end of a year by a lot. Not a little. Corey Frank (31:23): There you go. Absolutely. Well, I think we also need to mention the event one more time since Oren's not on here, right? Chris Beall (31:31): Yeah, when is it? Corey Frank (31:33): December 7th and December 8th at the Top Gun Studios in Carlsbad, California. Chris Beall (31:37): Wow. Corey Frank (31:38): Yes. Sunny, sunny California, right on the beach. You've had many events over the years there, Chris, you've been there many times. We'll try to maybe take a few of the cars out for a spin, maybe a couple of Ducati's since Oren's not on here, we can guarantee that. We'll have a blast. We're limiting it. If you would like some more information, please reach out to me at corey@branch49.com. Go to orenklaff.com, go to chris.beal@connectandsell.com. christ.beall, correct? Chris Beall (32:06): Yeah, chris.beall. Corey Frank (32:09): [inaudible 00:32:09]. Okay, great. And with that, Chris, I think we're going to put together another episode in the can here, since we do have our own Q4. Of course, you're not sitting around, you're waiting for the prospects to come to you. So, if he buys, he buys. It's only your number one client. We'll wait to hear how that story ends in the next episode. So for Chris Beall, this is Corey Frank with the Market Dominance Guys. Until next time. Chris Beall (32:34): All right, thanks, Corey.

Bloum Cardenas on Niki de Saint Phalle

THIS WEEK on the GWA Podcast, we interview Bloum Cardenas, none other than the granddaughter of the trailblazing, French-American sculptor, painter, performance artist and more, NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE!! Born in 1930 in France and living throughout the 20th century between America and Europe – she passed in 2002 – Saint Phalle is one of the century's greatest creative personalities. She pioneered not only the boundaries between painting, performance and conceptual art in Paris during the 1960s, but explored large scale immersive environments through her joyous, glittering sculptures. These include the Tarot Garden in Tuscany – this incredible paradisal sculpture park filled with these colossal Nana-style sculptures of these bulbous women, glittering in mosaics – or her 1966 work at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Hon - the Cathedral, where visitors would enter through the giant open legs of one of her Nana figures a world complete with a 12-seat cinema, a bar, a playground for kids, a fish pond and sandwich vending machine. In the early 1960s she worked on her Shooting Paintings – violently shooting at canvases with bags of coloured paint that exploded and dripped onto a plaster surface. She used her ‘shooting events' to fight against political corruption and the patriarchy. Employing large-scale canvases and masochistic gestures to emulate (and poke fun at) her male contemporaries, it was also through chance encounters and group efforts that Saint Phalle pioneered early concepts of Performance Art. By the mid-1960s, Saint Phalle had taken a different direction, abandoning her Shooting Paintings for her Nana sculptures: voluptuous and bulbous figures that reclaim the female form and celebrate the ‘everywoman'. Speaking about them in 1972, she said: ‘Why the nanas? Well, first because I am one myself. Because my work is very personal and I try to express what I feel. It is the theme that touches me most closely. Since women are oppressed in today's society I have tried, in my own personal way, to contribute to the Women's Liberation Movement.'

What do citizens do in response to threats to democracy? Citizenship in Hard Times: How Ordinary People Respond to Democratic Threat (Cambridge UP, 2022) examines the mass politics of civic obligation in the US, UK, and Germany. Exploring threats like foreign interference in elections and polarization, Sara Wallace Goodman shows that citizens respond to threats to democracy as partisans, interpreting civic obligation through a partisan lens that is shaped by their country's political institutions. This divided, partisan citizenship makes democratic problems worse by eroding the national unity required for democratic stability. Employing novel survey experiments in a cross-national research design, this book presents the first comprehensive and comparative analysis of citizenship norms in the face of democratic threat. In showing partisan citizens are not a reliable bulwark against democratic backsliding, Goodman identifies a key vulnerability in the mass politics of democratic order. In times of democratic crisis, defenders of democracy must work to fortify the shared foundations of democratic citizenship. Sara Wallace Goodman is Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). Her research examines citizenship and the shaping of political identity through immigrant integration. She is the co-author of Pandemic Politics: The Deadly Toll of Partisanship in the Age of COVID (Princeton University Press, 2022), and author of Immigration and Membership Politics in Western Europe (Cambridge University Press, 2014). Goodman's research has been cited in major news outlets, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and Vox. Her research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Russell Sage Foundation.

Today's show starts off with a brief recap of the nonsense production of the J6 Committee. I believe they have helped in providing a simple litmus test for whether or not people are suffering from even a mild case of mental health derangement. To believe the J6 Committee is looking for truth, means you should likely seek some professional help, if just to get you over this mental fallacy. Employing even a modicum of logic and reason reveals the J6 Committee is all about theater and nothing about substance. Moving on to yesterday's stunning revelation from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that the White House tried to strong-arm them to wait just a month before reducing their oil output. It was obviously done for political reasons. It's obviously a case of quid-pro-quo and it should, based on the precedence set by the Democrats, be a solid basis for impeachment proceedings. Jonanthan Ferro on Bloomberg TV tried to get Brian Deese, economic advisor to the White House, to address the Saudi statement. In typical Biden regime fashion, Deese refused to answer the question, choosing to serve up one ladle of word salad after another. When they refuse to address the subject, you know they have been caught. By the way, over the last few months, I've told you that I believe the employment numbers are being massaged in a way to try to help Joe Biden with his failed domestic policies. I have said I will not be surprised if they release a mountain of terrible economic and employment news should they loose both the House and the Senate. They will try to convince the American voter that their choice to elect Republicans has suddenly led to all of the bad numbers. It's not only a lie, but it's been their plan all along. They are purposely ruining the country with their Green New Deal magic-thinking, and now are going to try to blame a red wave on why the economy is tanking and employment numbers are soon to follow. Don't fall for it! Both President Joe Biden and MSNBC host Chris Hayes have tipped their hand yesterday and are proving me right. Australian news commentator and journalist Rita Panahi has some interested observances of our Commander-in-Chief. I always find it interesting to see how other nations are seeing us from the the outside. It's not good. And, since it's Friday, I wanted to end with something a little lighter. I have a nice compilation of typical sound bites from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. I think it does a good job of illustrating a typical briefing and is a beufitful analogy for how this White House operates.

linktr.ee/CatchingUpOnCinema This October marks the return of Catching Up Cinema's annual, “Kyle's Killer October” month! All month long, Kyle will be taking creative control of the program, with this year's theme being an exploration of the filmography of Rob Zombie! This week, we kick things off with a review of Rob Zombie's feature directorial debut, House of 1000 Corpses (2003)! The first of a trilogy of films concerning the Firefly family of hellbillies, House of 1000 Corpses is strong debut from Zombie, proudly wearing its numerous influences on its sleeves, and showcasing the director's eye for production design and visual flair. Employing a plethora of cinematographic, editing and makeup effects techniques and technologies, House of 1000 Corpses bears the fingerprints of a first time filmmaker, giddy with excitement at the prospect of using every tool in the box, regardless of it's practicality for the task at hand. In spite of being packed to the gills with bizarre interstitial and non-sequitur cut away sequences, House of 1000 Corpses doesn't quite achieve a 90 minute run time, resulting in halting and episodic an experience that strongly favors imagery and energy over narrative and characterization. Rejuvenating the careers of future Rob Zombie regulars, Sid Haig and Bill Moseley, as well as introducing audiences to his wife Sheri Moon, House of 1000 Corpses is a fine debut horror film from a unique filmmaker with a signature style and penchant for examining levels of brutality and meanness seldom featured in mainstream horror cinema.

It's New Orleans: Out to Lunch

There are a few famous families in New Orleans. The Nevilles. The Mannings. The Marsalis family. The Batistes. The Brennans. I could name more, and you can probably think of others too. Like mine, your list of names is likely going to be families of sports figures, musicians or restaurateurs. There are also families of business people here in New Orleans. Families that are every bit as dynastic as these other names. Like, for example, the Neill family. Hair In 1946, Harriet and Abner Neill started up the Magnolia Beauty Supply company. They manufactured and sold hair care products to hundreds of salons. They stayed in business for a couple of generations, over the years becoming bigger and more successful. Then, in 1991 they expanded into retail, and opened their first hair salon, in Hammond. That one salon, which they called Paris Parker, is now 8 salons that are called Paris Parker Salon & Spa. Employing over 200 people, they're a division of the Neill Corporation and are co—owned by Executive Director, Garrison Neill. Getting Ahead Growing up in a family where people are talking about business around the dinner table can be a distinct advantage for anyone going into business. But you can only absorb so much over a meal. And even if you go to business school, when it comes to actually running a business and making decisions that affect hundreds or thousands of other people, that's a whole other set of skills. Those skills – including communication, management, and leadership – are an absolute must to master. And what's interesting about them is, you can't learn them once and know everything. As times change, so do the ways you run a company. Michelle Johnston keeps corporate executives abreast of those changes. Michelle is an executive coach for the leaders of companies as diverse as Ochsner, Pfizer, The City of New Orleans, JP Morgan Chase, and many more. She's also a professor of business at Loyola University in New Orleans, and the author of a book about keeping current in business, called “The Seismic Shift In Leadership: how to thrive in a new era of connection.” There's no doubt that age makes you wiser. As time passes, you learn from your mistakes. If you're really wise, you reach the conclusion that you'll never stop learning. But what comes along with that wisdom is the corresponding realization that you'll also never stop making mistakes. The best you can do is to minimize your inevitable errors of judgement. And one of the ways you can do that in business - the same as in the rest of your life – is by learning to listen. Michelle's impressive list of clients, students, and readers of her writing are all smart enough to listen to her. And Garrison has learned from the generations of family members ahead of him and is continuing to shape the family business in response to the changing needs of both clients and employees. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at NOLA Pizza in the NOLA Brewing Taproom.

Trond Undheim, futurist, speaker, entrepreneur, venture partner, and author of a new book “Augmented Lean”. Trond draws on his technology-focused background across public, academic, and private sectors to discuss the need and solutions for workplace flexibility for frontline manufacturing workers. Acknowledging the paradigm shift to employ a human-centric approach, integrating employees' inputs, Trond highlights sophisticated new software which improve frontline experiences and overall results. These solutions optimize processes and augment workers rather than emphasize machine automation.    KEY TAKEAWAYS   [03:19] Trond's path starts in a random manner when he notices a poster!   [04:55] How Trond canceled Christmas to write his Ph.D. proposal in two weeks.   [06:02] Norway's phone company is exploring the nomadic workplace in 1998.   [07:44] Trond does fieldwork in Silicon Valley that is selling “placelessness”.   [09:18] Trond becomes sought after for technology policy decision-making, government thinktanks, energy policy, and eventually economics at the E.U..   [12:19] Standardization: Trond explains how fascinating and essential it is—eg the Apple charger.   [14:54] How interoperability and openness have been important new developments.   [16:19] Trond equates learning standards and standardization like foreign languages.   [19:22] Trond's work at MIT on no-code language and the impact it can have on the workplace.   [20:42] Advanced efforts to transform the factory floor with productivity tools for frontline workers.   [22:08] The tech user interface is finally simple enough to get out of the way.   [22:49] Was the emphasis on automation was the wrong path to take—being technology deterministic?   [23:00] When it comes to manufacturing, why has the focus historically been on automation and efficiency?   [24:49] The question is NOT “Are the robots going to take over?” That has been a distraction.   [26:10] How can we think about the “how” of work differently to get on the right track? Trond offers a fundamental to ask question first.    [27:20] The role of business schools in producing leaders who think they know best!   [28:20] Changing the paradigm from a quest for lifelong specialization in one domain to multiple specializations over time with general systems knowledge.   [31:40] How a human-centric manufacturing approach gathers and benefits from front-line workers' and middle managers' years of expertise.   [34:17] Why “cobots” are an important reframing of machines as “robots” are defined as “dangerous”.   [36:52] Bridging the digital/physical divide through augmentation to transform frontline workers toward knowledge work—Trond explains why this is a good thing.   [40:45] How greater advances now can be made augmenting how frontline workers work rather than automating machines.   [42:30] The potential for renewed glory in manufacturing by augmenting the entire workforce. Tune in for Part 2 – the practical “how” to make it happen.   RESOURCES   Trond Undheim on LinkedIn Trond on Twitter Futurized & Augmented podcasts Augmented Lean book by Trond Arne Undheim Tulip.co   QUOTES    “It sounds extremely dry, but standardization is super interesting. It's the driver of the economy: it builds markets.”   “Markets are built: they are very purposely constructed architectures of rules, regulations, and standards.”   “Multiple specialities consecutively throughout your career has to be the target.”   “In a true human centric vision of manufacturing, the humans are always at the center---the whole idea is manufacturing has always been about innovation.”   “The overall perspective that ‘management knows best' is detrimental to a true understanding of human work.”   “To make progress, the smart thing is to augment your workforce more than you automate your machines.”

In this episode, Jeannette talks to the entrepreneur and rugby star Paul Thorburn, who played 300 matches for Neath and 37 international matches for Wales, 10 of them as captain. He holds the record for the longest successful kick in an international test match. He gained the record during the 1986 Five Nations Championship at Cardiff Arms Park against Scotland. His penalty kick measured exactly 64.2 metres. He explains the role that having a winning mindset had in his sporting success and how he has applied what he learned while playing rugby to the world of business. Paul shares the details of his journey through life, so far. Including, how despite initially failing his A levels he resat and passed them so that he could attend Swansea university. There he got access to high-level coaching, which enabled him to excel at the sport he loved. Paul also explains how he prepared himself to become a successful entrepreneur and business consultant once his sporting career was over.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Being in the right place at the right time plays a role in a successful career. But you have to recognise and take the opportunities. Team sport benefits people in many ways. You form strong, long-lasting relationships with your teammates. Having a winning mindset only produces results if you are disciplined about your training and preparation. Analysing your performance is an essential component of personal growth. Put any personal differences with team members aside and respect them. Employing experts to take care of different aspects of your business is vital. If you have an aspiration, go for it. Be true to yourself and give people the respect you would like to receive yourself.   BEST MOMENTS ‘You make your own luck. ´ ‘Neath was the first (rugby) club to start having individual performance analysis.' ‘I apply the same (business) principles, regardless of my clients sector. A business is a business.'   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life.

He spent his childhood in various RAF Stations across England and was educated in a boarding school. He went on to study Microbiology at Swansea University. At that stage in his life, his main focus was his rugby career. He played 300 matches for Neath and went on to play for the Welsh national team 37 times. Including captaining the Welsh team on 10 occasions. After graduating he started work with a security business, but within 18 months then moved into a sector to use my qualifications and I started working for Glaxo Pharmaceuticals in a business development role, promoting their range of pharmaceutical products to the GPs and Pharmacists in South Wales. In 1991, he joined the Welsh Development Agency (WDA). A Government funded quango, tasked with attracting investment projects into Wales. His role, as one of the Project Managers, was to assist in securing foreign direct investment into Wales – these organisations included automotive component manufacturers, consumer electronics manufacturers, biotechnology companies, service industries and financial institutions. After a 5-year career with the WDA, John was then appointed Tournament Director for the 1999 Rugby World Cup Tournament, my role here was to deliver the World's largest International Rugby Tournament. This one was the first one to be staged following the decision to make rugby a professional sport. Wales was the official host Nation, but the 42 International matches were spread across Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland, and France, with the Opening Ceremony, the Opening match and the Final taking place at the New Millennium Stadium. As Tournament Director, John´s role was to put the event together, delivering the venues, training grounds, the hotels for participants and all the Officials, the team, and the official logistics programme, including overseas travel for the Teams, Officials; the medical provision; the Ceremonies and Official functions during the 7-week event. This was a 4-year contract, which ended in March 2000, on completion of the Tournament reports and reconciliation of the Tournament finances and distribution of the monies to the hosting Unions.  After 4 years working as an Executive Search and Selection Consultant, recruiting senior Execs into Public and Private sector roles, John returned to the professional world of rugby. He joined the Welsh Rugby Union as a Special Projects Manager, a role which included working on the pre-event preparations for the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and assisting the Official Hosts, France in delivering the event. As well as overusing the Commercial programme for the Welsh Rugby Union, securing sponsorship for International events, as well sponsorship for the domestic rugby programme in Wales, also securing and managing the Licensing programme – merchandise etc. In 2006, John was appointed Strategic Development Manager for the Ospreys, one of the professional rugby clubs in Wales. In essence, he oversaw the commercial programme for the club, securing sponsorship, and all other income generation activities. In 2010, John left the world of rugby, setting up his own Business Development consultancy, where he works alongside a handful of diverse organisations, assisting them in securing contracts with private and/or public sector clients, working in the construction, financial services, telecoms, and recruitment arenas.

Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Career Podcasts! “Instead of working and giving my life and my family the breadcrumbs of time, why don't I turn it over? My family, my time, whatever it is that is important to you. It could be work or whatever you actually love. If you do that, here's what happens: you think you won't have time to do the things that actually have to get done to work and get paid. Not true. You actually [get more] creative in getting those things done in less time.” — Richie Norton Are you looking to find your motivation, prioritize your ideals, and create a flexible work-life lifestyle that allows you to enjoy expansive freedom? Today's Finding Brave guest believes that you can do all of the above, no matter how busy or successful you are, using what he calls Anti-Time Management! Today, you'll learn about the power of Time Tipping from award-winning author and serial entrepreneur, Richie Norton. As an executive coach to CEOs, Richie has been featured in Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek, Inc., Entrepreneur, and the Huffington Post. Pacific Business News recognized Richie as one of the Top Forty Under 40 ‘Best and Brightest Young Businessmen' in Hawaii, and he is considered one of the world's leading thinkers and is included in Marshall Goldsmith's Top 100 coaches community. He is also the CEO and Cofounder of PROUDUCT, an INC. 5000 company and a global entrepreneurship solution that helps businesses go from idea to market with full-service sourcing, product strategy, and end-to-end supply chain, and the author of several books, including Anti-Time Management, The Power of Starting Something Stupid, and Résumés Are Dead and What to Do About It.  Richie and I go back nine years to when I wrote about his second great book, The Power of Starting Something Stupid, for my Forbes blog in 2013. In today's episode, he shares some of the valuable frameworks from his latest book, Anti-Time Management, and how you can implement them to stop managing your time and start prioritizing your attention.

In December 2020, an Israeli football club made worldwide headlines. The news that a UAE royal had bought 50 per cent of Beitar's shares shook Israel and the football world. Beitar, proclaimed by some of its own fans as 'the most racist club in the country', is a club like no other in Israel. While Israeli football as a whole is a space where Israelis of all ethnicities and foreigners can co-exist, Beitar won't even sign a Muslim player for fear of its own far-right supporters' group, La Familia.  On the Border: The Rise and Decline of the Most Political Club in the World (Pitch Publishing, 2022) is the fascinating tale of a club that began as a sports movement of a liberal national Zionism party and became an overt symbol of right-wing views, Mizrahi identity and eventually hardcore racism and nationalism. The book explores the radicalisation of Beitar and the fight for the soul of the club between the racists and open-minded fans. It is also a story of Jerusalem, the most volatile place on Earth, and how the holy city and the influence of religion have shaped Beitar. Founded in 1936, the club took its name from a Zionist organization set up in 1923 by students in the capital of Latvia, Riga, following a visit by Ze'ev Jabotinsky, the Zionist Revisionist and founder of the para­military group Irgun. Beitar's story mirrors that of its city. For thirty years, under the British Mandate, impoverished young Mizrahim (Jews from Arab countries) had kicked a ball around Jerusalem's Musrara neighbourhood with Arab friends. The war of 1948 changed that. Subsequent events sharpened the divide, leading to the unrepentant racism of La Familia, Beitar “ultras” who began by making monkey noises at a player from Cameroon and graduated to chants threatening death to Arabs. Employing violence and intimi­dation, they ensured no Muslim could play for Beitar, thereby betraying a key element of Jabotinsky's scheme – equality for Arabs.

Lewis, called Get Free and Stay Free, is now available.The book focuses on returning citizens who have made a success in their lives after paying their debt to society. With about two-thirds of folks released from prison returning within three years, Rich wanted to focus on the one-third who succeed, to provide role models and hope for inmates.Rich’s full-time job is as a vocational trainer inside a large maximum security prison. He’s been there about 20 years. “Unfortunately, the criminal justice system has become more of a warehousing scenario than a rehabilitation,” he says.Employing empathy, he’s learned to appreciate the men he works with. “I see some of these guys have a work ethic that you wouldn’t believe,” he says. “If they work that good and hard for $0.19 to $0.42 an hour, imagine what they’re going to do for $15 or $20 an hour.”“Regardless of how long their sentence is, the reentry should start the first day of incarceration,” Rich says. An old saying in prison is a good guide, “Don’t let the time do you. You do the time.”“In other words, hang out with the right people. Take advantage of every class or educational experience or vocational experience you can get involved with,” he says.As returning citizens transition from incarceration to freedom, Rich notes that the judicial system is improving but needs to make more progress. “They’ve already paid their dues. They paid their time. We should be trying to help encourage them to to to succeed when they get out.”He adds, “I’ve noticed the last five years or so, we’re finally starting to get it.”He notes that Texas has an unusually low rate of recidivism. “Their premise is, “All right, partner, you're coming into our neighborhood. You're now our neighbor. Now we're going to do what we can to remove every excuse for you not to go back to prison. “We're going to help you get a job. We're going to help you get a place to live. But you're going to show up. You're going to be a man. “We're not your mommy and daddy. We're not going to enable you. We're not going to pity you, but we are going to help you succeed in our neighborhood.”Rich sees empathy as a key to helping returning citizens succeed. “Be empathetic to the scenario where they’re coming out, and they’re human beings, and they have emotions like us; they’re not caged animals.”Rich sees the empathy he learned working with incarcerated people as his superpower.Enjoy Every Episode!How to Develop Empathy As a Superpower“I’ve learned how to treat the men with respect but in a no-nonsense kind of way,” Rich says. “I create an atmosphere where we know how to have fun and respect but get the job done.”He points out that it is hard for those not connected to the justice system to imagine the context that leads people to prison. “A lot of these men were raised in cultures that a lot of folks like yourself and I and your perhaps a lot of your listeners, we just don’t get the type of culture.”To illustrate, he shared a story:I remember one prisoner told me one time about ten, 15 years ago, he said, “Mr. Jacobs, I just want to do right so bad. I had my mind set up, and I went home, and I told my mom, ‘Mom, I'm going to do this. I'm going to go on the right path.’ She said, ‘Boy, you better get out there and sell drugs,’ and cussed at him and said, ‘Stop talking that nonsense.’”Stories like that helped him develop more profound empathy for the inmates. He acknowledges he’s still learning.“Somebody stole the electric pencil sharpener out of my classroom,” he says of a recent experience. “I got so angry. I made humor out of this for two or three days with my students because—and I told them, you know—in my flesh, it really made me mad.”As he looked into this, he realized that electric pencil sharpeners are a frequent target of theft. He learned that the prisoners use the motors for tattoo guns. He says empathy allows him to see the human side of such experiences.You can develop empathy as a superpower by following Rich’s example and insights, allowing you to do more good in the world.
