I am always fascinated to meet and talk with people on Unstoppable Mindset who thought they knew what they wanted to do in life only to discover that their path went in an alternative direction. Meet Eric Dates who is just such a person. Eric grew up in the Los Angeles area. He was active in sports and also he was a musician. He went to Ohio State where he played volleyball on the 2011 championship team. After college Eric thought he wanted to go into the hospitality industry as he loved, as he put it “the diversity of people and the diversity of possibilities”. As he tells us, his idea of work lasted four months. After that, he realized his knowledge of marketing was better suited elsewhere. Our conversation is far-ranging, but we do talk a lot about marketing and sales. Marketing discussions go far outside dealing with products, however. I think you will be intrigued by what Eric has to say especially about life and how we should progress going forward. About the Guest: Eric Dates, a proud resident in Spring Hill, TN, is a multifaceted professional with a storied history of achievement and leadership. A former Division I volleyball player at Ohio State, Eric was part of the national championship team in 2011, marking a significant milestone early in his life. His competitive spirit and teamwork were not confined to the volleyball court, though, and they have since become defining attributes in his professional career. Eric's journey took a melodious turn as he embarked on a successful yet short career as a touring musician. This unique experience endowed him with a new perspective, a creative mindset, and an appreciation for the harmonious blend of rhythm and discipline. As his career evolved, Eric discovered his true calling: fostering growth in early to mid-stage startups. With his inherent problem-solving skills and penchant for teamwork, he has contributed to the flourishing of several startups, paving their paths toward achieving their full growth potential. Currently, Eric serves as the Sr. Director of Revenue Marketing at Justt, a forward-thinking fintech company dedicated to helping merchants recapture revenue lost to chargebacks. His love for problem-solving thrives in this challenging environment, and he relishes living in the trenches with his team, building, improving, and innovating. Startups resonate with Eric's professional ethos as they offer him a space to think holistically and make a tangible impact. It's here that his passion, intellect, and entrepreneurial spirit come to the fore. Outside of his professional endeavors, Eric cherishes his role as a husband and father. Alongside his wife, Laura, he is raising two wonderful children, Bella (8) and Harlan (1), and navigates the beautiful labyrinth that is life.

Michael Hingson ** 01:20 Well, hi, and here we are once again with unstoppable mindset. Glad you're here. And hope you enjoy our presentation and discussions today. We get to speak with Eric Dates. And Eric has an interesting life. I think so he was a division one volleyball player on a championship team for Ohio State. I bet Michigan didn't like that. But you know, that's another that's another story. But he's been involved in leadership marketing and, and has a lot to talk about least, it seems so from the things I've read. So Eric, welcome to unstoppable mindset. And we're really glad you're here. Eric Dates ** 01:57 Michael, thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. It's always an honor to chat with you. So looking forward to it. Michael Hingson ** 02:03 Well, why don't we start, as I love to do and tell us a little bit about kind of the early Eric growing up and all that stuff? Eric Dates ** 02:11 Sure. So I stem from the left coast, the west coast in the Heart of LA, born and raised there. Yeah, had awesome, awesome family life. I was super blessed. I got to get to participate in a lot of sports and a lot of other fun things. I did music as well, out there growing up and we're in LA. Right on the west side of LA, I guess the biggest subsidy of that massive place would be Culver City area for me. And yeah, it was great. You know, it's, it was, I'm really glad I grew up where I grew up in in the way that I grew up. Because it gave me a great perspective of diversity, I think in a lot of ways that people want to experience it. Every school I went to was, you know, had people from all walks of life across the board. And to me, that was just the status quo. So I think it shaped me to become the person I am today, which is, you know, someone who expects that out of society in general. And it's been really, I've been really fortunate to continue to experience tons of diversity, whether it's people diversity or activity, diversity, you know, all the different types of diversity, you can experience. I've been lucky enough to be a part of a bunch of it. So it's been it's been a great road so far from that, you know, kind of looking back now. The way I grew up, I, I couldn't imagine it happening any other way at this point. And I wouldn't wish it to be so because I just feel like it. It taught me a lot of lessons both hard and easy to learn in a great way that I don't think I would have got anywhere else. Michael Hingson ** 03:51 So you went through high school out in LA Eric Dates ** 03:54 that I did. I went to Alexander Hamilton High School, the birthplace of many random things, and actually stay in high school is a couple celebrity folks that you probably recognize. And it was great, super fun experience. It was a half of a Music Academy, half humanities Academy and it was a phenomenal school. Public school too in the Heart of LA. Wow. Michael Hingson ** 04:17 What did you play for an instrument? Eric Dates ** 04:20 So my main instrument was guitar growing up, like guitar, and I did everything from in high school. I was a mariachi, which was really fun. Great experience getting to around Los Angeles and playing for just the most incredible people I've ever met and eating the most incredible food I've ever eaten. And I toured as a musician here in Nashville as well with guitar for a little bit so it carried me on throughout my earlier life quite a bit. Michael Hingson ** 04:48 Well, so you went through high school and then I gather you went to Ohio State that I did. What what prompted that because that's a long way from Southern California. Eric Dates ** 05:01 It definitely was. And I'd be lying to you if I said it was easy to do. But at the beginning, it was very much, you know, especially when you're fortunate enough to be playing a sport like that, that does have a collegiate level. I got to fly and experience Ohio State, I experienced a couple other schools in Southern California. And I was just blown away by the the pride and culture that the entire campus had, I just wanted to go be a part of it. But that thought it was a two in my eyes, it was a huge risk, you know, coming from the epicenter of volleyball going into the Midwest, which turns out has a phenomenal volleyball program across the board. And yeah, it was the the good Ohio State Buckeyes that got me out of California. Michael Hingson ** 05:46 Well, so, you're right, it's sort of the epicenter out here in a lot of ways, but volleyball has turned out to be a lot more universal than maybe we thought and the Olympics is certainly brought volleyball to the visibility of of a lot of people, which is, which is kind of cool. What did you major in in college, Eric Dates ** 06:09 I was that person who didn't figure out what I wanted to major. And until the last second, I had to pick and I picked English, which turned into marketing, which then turned into Hospitality Management, then Consumer Science is where I landed. Michael Hingson ** 06:26 Wow. That's a kind of, again, a diverse range of topics to to deal with. And you did all that and move from one of those fields to the other in college. Eric Dates ** 06:40 Yeah, so I eventually found my place at the time in Hospitality Management, because of the phenomenal focus on customer experience. And I'm so thankful for that time I spent there as it applies in so much these days. So I was really fortunate to learn early on after graduating, that I did not want to work in hotels. Michael Hingson ** 07:04 But you value the customer service and customer experience concept. Eric Dates ** 07:09 More than anything, it's why is that? You know, it's, it's been interesting, because the hospitality world, they've understood from the beginning, that you're buying the experience, right, you're you're purchasing the brand, in a sense, when you go stay at a property, it's the only tangible thing is, you know, the bed and the room itself, but that exists anywhere. So why pick them. And it all came down to the core differentiator, which was the way that they treated their guests. And now, you know, flash forward 12 ish years in the future. That's how all these marketing departments and all these companies across the board are approaching their customers, you know, so it's been, it's been really beneficial for me to have that foundation, because I could start to apply what I already learned versus having to learn something like a new concept is customer first. Michael Hingson ** 07:56 So how do you think customer experience and so on has changed or developed during the pandemic? Because certainly, it has a lot. And in hotels, for example, a lot of things have changed rooms aren't necessarily cleaned every day. Sometimes there are other kinds of services that are more limited. Airlines are certainly not providing as much of what they used to provide. If I'm reading it, right, what do you think about all of that? And how does all that really blend into the whole customer experience concept? Eric Dates ** 08:28 It's definitely shifted significantly, you know, I think the start of it all was the iPhone coming out and these touchscreens and now half the experience was heavily digital in their hand. And with the pandemic kind of changing that in almost mandating that that's the new experience for the most part, as well as customer behavior kind of changing. I think it's, it's opened up a lot of challenges, you know, in the hospitality space. And in general, in a service based industry, you have this whole concept of a service recovery plan, right? If something goes wrong with this, what are we supposed to do? And now it all transitioned from the humanistic element over into the digital elements. So all these properties, especially hotels, airlines, all these folks who weren't necessarily digital first thinkers, they had to rapidly pivot and start accommodating, but also had to learn the hard way kind of building the ship as you're sailing. Michael Hingson ** 09:22 Yeah. Well, and I read a lot of complaints taking airlines, like, we want to push as many people into an airplane as possible. So now, the space in seats is six inches less than it used to be. And now we're starting to hear people say, Has it gotten too confined and too crowded? And is all of the air rage that we hear about and read about, in part because of that and customer service? Is is it really as good as it used to be? Eric Dates ** 09:56 I think that is a very phenomenal question because I don't think there's a clear answer, I think some have done better. And some have dropped the ball. And it's gonna be an interesting time looking into the future, especially as this technology in general starts to compound at the rate that it is, who's going to remain versus what new players are, we're going to see and who's gonna fall off. So it's gonna be an interesting, you know, couple of years, in my opinion, as we look forward to see kind of who's still going to be here versus Are there going to be new names? I've never heard of the forefront. Michael Hingson ** 10:29 Yeah. And that's going to be the exciting thing. Are we going to see new players who come in with new ideas that for whatever reason people haven't thought of? And probably the naysayers will say, Well, that'll never work. Well, that certainly was true with Southwest Airlines, because they rejected the whole idea of a hub model for slang. And they're still around. Eric Dates ** 10:53 That's very true. That's very true, they did get the good to get a little bit of a saving grace once the economy tanked a bit. But yeah, I agree, they did a good job at at pivoting accordingly. And kind of changing their brand, in a way that their expectation was very clear of when you engage with Southwest, here's what your experience is going to be like, that's what's really saved them. Michael Hingson ** 11:15 And while it's true that you just get on an airplane, there are no assigned seats and, and other things like that. Mostly, I don't hear nearly the level of complaints about them as I do some of the other airlines because you've also got the flight attendants, who have been encouraged to make the flying experience more pleasurable, and they're not necessarily as stiff as and as formal, at least in my experience. Eric Dates ** 11:46 I want to agree, you know, you hit on a really interesting point, that it used to be looking for elements of digital to drop into the human experience. And now it's the opposite way of, if we drop human experience into a digital, you know, journey, it's almost like it becomes significantly more noticed. And I love how Southwest has empowered those folks to have fun and enjoy what they're doing. And, you know, the consumers always tell you, you know, whether they're sharing stuff out social or hits the news, whatever, but they will let you know what they liked what they do. And it seems like people have really caught on to that one element of the brand. Michael Hingson ** 12:23 Yeah. And it's, it's going to be interesting just to see how it all goes. As we go forward, and whether consumers will demand enough that they don't like, perhaps the way some things are going well, we'll see. And the other part of it is that I know different countries have different levels of airlines, passenger rights or other kinds of industry rights. Legislation. So it'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out. It's going to be an exciting time. No, no question about it. Eric Dates ** 12:59 Absolutely, we'll probably see things happen the fastest they've ever happened before. And it will continue to be as such. Michael Hingson ** 13:06 Yeah. And, and that's okay. That's what makes it kind of fun. Well, so what did you do right out of college? So you were in hospitality? Where did you go to work? What did you do that got you off of hotels. Eric Dates ** 13:21 I was working at two properties in Columbus, actually, Columbus, Ohio. And it was fun. And I just wanted in full transparency. I probably was way too ambitious for my own good. I was looking to learn to things in hotel so I could start my own and, you know, build the version of Atlantis that we all want to build in our minds and make it real. And I quickly realized that I probably needed to get some more experience and knowledge around what I thought I knew. So let me do the business world. Michael Hingson ** 13:54 What did you So how long did you do hotel stuff? Eric Dates ** 13:58 I had been working in hotels since probably five years like during college and then after college than after you know that that last portion kind of before I moved to Nashville? Yeah, I was in those two. So prob about five years of hotel work here and there. I would wouldn't say his full time just because of the sports commitments and other things. But as much as I could. I was I was working on property and getting that experience in. Michael Hingson ** 14:26 Was it full time after college? Eric Dates ** 14:29 It was it was full time. Michael Hingson ** 14:31 And how long do that? How long was that after college? Eric Dates ** 14:36 Prep? Probably right when I went full time full time and I hated it to be fully transparent. It was a shock for me to go full time on on your feet all day. So is the short three or four months of full time before this really hit me of like this is not it's not Eric, Michael Hingson ** 14:52 you made a decision pretty quickly. So what did you what what did you then go and do Eric Dates ** 15:00 So that's kind of when I picked everything up and said, You know, I'm going to try to move to Nashville. I had some friends here had some had some connections here and wanted had always been doing music, like I said, so I was gonna go see if I could dive into some songwriting get into the performing aspect, while chasing a business career. And that's when I found my first, I guess, real marketing job was with a co working space here in Nashville. And that was what jump started my career in marketing. Michael Hingson ** 15:30 But you also worked as a musician for a while, right? Eric Dates ** 15:33 I did. I was touring around and touring with the back that I was with is basically fancy weekends is the way that pitch it, you know, some Thursday nights, but mostly Fridays, and Saturdays, you're out. I'd love to say a bus. But most of the times it was in a van. And we were, you know, putting in the grind and going out. So every other Thursday, just about, you know, we were an opening act. So we'd go chase down where the big open or the big maniac was, to our 45 minute set. And right back to Nashville. Michael Hingson ** 16:07 Anybody who was a maniac that we would know. Eric Dates ** 16:11 I absolutely, I think, you know, one of the one of the main acts that we were opening up for most when I was with this artists and artists was playing for a name was Tara Thompson, or still is, her name is Tara Thompson. And the main act that we opened for most was Drake. White was his name. So he had some really popular songs out. I think like 2017. And some other various artists, I had the fortunate opportunity of opening for, you know, everything from The Chainsmokers to mark chestnut, you know, the the country gentleman who had some pretty big songs, and quite a few other artists that were it was just really cool to go experience that. But there was also a reason why I did not stay. Michael Hingson ** 16:51 That wasn't what you really wanted to do full time. Eric Dates ** 16:56 Correct. It was a it was that classic inflection point, the fork in the road of if I keep going this way. I have to go 100%. Yeah. Michael Hingson ** 17:06 And you weren't really ready to do that. Concerning music. And it doesn't sound like you wanted to do that. But you still had a lot of fun with music. So it helped. Absolutely. But you But you went into marketing, and you started working for a company, what did you do? Eric Dates ** 17:24 So it was right at the boom of we work kind of getting on the map. So I was a part of a younger company startup out of Nashville that had two locations, the company name is E spaces, they're still here, they're doing a great job. They've gotten I think, like nine or 10 locations now, some in Florida as well. So with that job, when I first got there, it was very much we need marketing help. We don't have big budget because we're young, but we're leaning me and we're ready to go. So we need someone to help build the front desk, the front desk experience because they loved my hospitality background. So I was able to apply those learnings pretty quickly and help encourage these folks who were renting the front desk, or what we coined as the concierge to heighten the experience. And then with that kind of put together some digital marketing the b2b side to try and attract customers. So it's very much localized marketing. And it was great for me to learn because it was pretty hands off for my boss. He all he knew is what he wanted at the end. And oftentimes, for folks like myself, that's really appealing because I get to go test my theories learn the hard way. And get us there by any means necessary. Michael Hingson ** 18:42 Well, you, you got into marketing and tell me a little bit more about what you mean, when you say you you were in marketing and what marketing is. Eric Dates ** 18:52 That's a phenomenal question. I view marketing exclusively as conversation and mindshare, right? How can I rent space in the mind of the right person at the right time. And often that's accomplished these days through digital conversation, but yet to meet to me marketing is all around fostering the right message to the right person at the right time. Michael Hingson ** 19:20 How does that differ differ from sales? And I know you make a little bit of a distinction between the two. So what's the difference? Eric Dates ** 19:30 So the main difference to me and this is a topic that you don't really see as much as you think. But with with sales, to me, it's the goal is to get them to purchase. And in my opinion marketing is to encourage the right decision when the decision is to purchase. That's one, whether the decision is to follow along and consume content. That's a secondary, you know, there's a bunch of different goals that I think marketing helps accomplish, but it's more so sales. is really figuring out what do you individual? What do you need here? And how can what I offer meet that for you. So it's kind of a little bit different than I'm anticipating that conversation and trying to stimulate it to when the person in the market shows up to that conversation and hits that conclusion of, hey, I want this. The conversation is easier from the sales side. So it's kind of marketing, in my opinion, if done right, it handles all the objections that you would have in a normal sales process. Michael Hingson ** 20:33 So I, I know from my experience, I've been in sales most of my adult life. And I, my view of sales is somewhat similar to yours. I think that good salespeople are teachers. And the reality is that the best salespeople also are capable of recognizing when what we're offering won't necessarily do what the customer needs, or it would be more of a disservice to try to push them into something than to say to them, This is what really works. My best employee that I ever hired, was a guy who, when he came for his interview, and we sat down, and I said, Tell me what you're going to be selling for us. He said, Actually, all I can really sell is my word, and my trust, and people need to decide to trust me, and I need you to back me up. Because the products and so on is all stuff. And a number of people have products and really the only thing I can really sell this myself and my word. And that was the answer I always look for and rarely ever got. Because the reality is that good salespeople, first of all, do understand marketing. Oh, yeah, but they but they also understand that their job is to do their best to help a customer make the right decision. And the reality is if the decision is my product won't do what they need, then the other aspect of it is what will work for them. And if I help a customer decide that and it isn't the product that I have, what does that get me? Well, the reality is I've seen on more than one occasion, when it gets me is so much trust that the customer understands what we have, and when an opportunity comes along to purchase a product. And in fact, we have I've seen on more than one occasion where the the customer says, I'm not putting it out for bid, you just tell us what the cost is. And we're gonna buy it from you because we trust you. That's great. And you just don't see much of that. Eric Dates ** 22:49 That's true. Yeah, go ahead. Okay. I just think you hit on a really great point that a lot of folks almost lose these days. And I'm thinking kind of from a biased perspective of b2b exclusively software, as a service. And right now, the volume game, in my opinion, has become a tunnel or blinders for people because they're so focused on activity, right, everything now becomes a I have to hit this amount of activity today, I have to, you know, send as many emails as candidates, people call as many people, etc, etc. And they lose almost that forward thinking. So I think, when I hear you say that, it's that that's experienced, that's knowledge being shared, versus when you see sales folks out these days, and I'm just speaking the masses, I think there's a core group of very experienced sales folks who know exactly what they're doing. But from what I experienced in my inbox, and especially when my phone rings, it's, it's, it's almost a victim of process because they're like, I have to call you, I have to push this on you. Because I need to sell you this so I can have a job that fit. There's so much pressure put on these folks these days from a process side versus that longer term thinking of trust building and credibility boosting like you're mentioning. Michael Hingson ** 24:06 Yeah. And the reality is that the people who really understand what selling is all about can take a step back and try to stave off more of that pressure because they know what they're doing and they know what they can do. I remember after September 11, people would call me and say you got to start selling again. We need to make goal this quarter. And this is now late in September of 2001. And it didn't matter to them that our customers were attending five, six and seven funerals a day and we're not buying the people who were calling we're so far removed, that they just could not understand why people weren't right back in and buying and they interpreted is that really we weren't off and selling, which was totally Not true at all. In reality, we ended up making gold that quarter. But still, the bottom line is that people have just such interesting ideas sometimes about how to sell rather than really allowing people to build the level of trust that we need to have. Eric Dates ** 25:20 That's a great, great definition. It's, you know, it's it's rather than learning selling, it's understanding buying. I think those are really interesting perspective to look at it from. Michael Hingson ** 25:31 It is, well, so clearly, we're talking philosophy here, we're talking about selling the philosophy of marketing, how do you feel that that marketing and you know, your overall philosophy intertwined with each other, or sales for that matter? Eric Dates ** 25:47 Right, and it's, I, I am, of the mindset of simplification, it, simplify everything in its in its most simple form, get down to the essence, right, so I can really understand what it is. So as I approach a lot of my marketing, and teams that you know, who've worked with me, even my current team, they know this happens all the time is that, you know, I asked him well, what's like, like, in one sentence, like what just tell me like, if I'm your 10 year old cousin, tell me exactly what you're trying to accomplish? Like, we're at a family dinner. And I'm asking you, hey, what do you do at work, like, tell me what you're trying to accomplish? And then they say it, and it's okay. That's how you need to write to the market, because you just told me the clearest and simplest way for me to understand something. So often, what I end up doing in my moments of thinking are just simplifying and breaking things down as much as I can to get a better understanding of how I can leverage these, you know, tactics and tools that we all have, and probably take for granted on a daily basis. Michael Hingson ** 26:49 Yeah, we often do really take it for granted way too much. And we don't think about it. And, like with so many things, we tend to react more than thinking about it, and then reacting and becoming better at thinking about it and drawing good sound conclusions before we do something or say something. Eric Dates ** 27:09 Completely agree the the scheduling an hour for yourself, I think, is something often understated, in terms of importance, because it can do so much for people who have a very busy plate, just getting that hour of unplug everything, put the phone away and just think, you know, shut the computer down and just just think about something, you know, challenge yourself a little bit, it's still a muscle, Michael Hingson ** 27:35 it is still a muscle Do you tend to do much of that? Do you do sort of introspective thinking at the end of the day, or at some point every day to step back from everything that's going on? Eric Dates ** 27:48 Absolutely, I try to do it twice a day, you know, kind of a lunchtime work right after I finished lunch. Rather than diving right back in, it's kind of the you know, don't swim for 20 minutes after you eat. I tried to not work for 20 minutes after I just think and use that time. The other time is, of course, at the end of the day where I reflect on everything that went on. And oftentimes I'll chew on a specific aspect of the day for for quite a bit and just see what I can do with it. Zero goals other than just think Michael Hingson ** 28:17 you beat yourself up when you're thinking that you screwed up in something or something didn't go the way you wanted? Or how do you handle those kinds of adverse situations? Eric Dates ** 28:28 Absolutely. And yeah, the younger Eric, the fresh out of college, Eric would have. Absolutely and definitely did beat himself up and, and learning from what happens when you do that. So it's been very helpful for me, like I said, I do like to learn the hard way, unfortunately. But it helps me out with where I'm at now. Because I'm very purposeful about not reacting to my own emotions. And those you know, scenarios where you're frustrated because something was missed. I need to focus on getting back to the right mentality. So I can make a sound decision versus reacting from a state of anger or frustration. So it's been that's probably the strongest thing I've learned in my life has been that right there of when to react based on emotion versus not to any scenario, and I'm definitely not perfect, but I'm more cognizant of it. Michael Hingson ** 29:20 Yeah, the issue is that we are, as I love to say, our own best teachers. I don't like any more to use the term. I'm my own worst critic. I used to do that. When I would listen to speeches that I've given and listen to the recordings of them. I would tell people I'm doing it because I'm my own worst critic. And if I can learn from it, that's great. And I realized that that was the wrong thing to say that in reality, I'm my own best teacher because no matter what is going on, the only person who can really teach me is me. Teachers and others can provide information and they can give me things to think about, but I'm still the one that has to deal with them. So I've learned that I'm actually my own best teacher. And I'm with you, I try not to react in adverse or negative ways, and beat myself up even when something just really doesn't go. Well. The real issue at that point isn't, what a scroungy lousy guy you are, but what do I learn from that? How can I improve it? Or can I improve it, it may very well be that there was absolutely nothing that can be done to improve the situation, because it was something that was totally out of my control Eric Dates ** 30:34 completely. But that's, it's, it's funny how, in practice, it becomes so simple. But, you know, looking at it from the outside, in, it's very much one of the most difficult things you can do. Michael Hingson ** 30:49 Again, it gets back down to a philosophy of life, and we're still the only people who can excite ourselves, or adopt philosophy that we think about. And we if we do it, right, we do it because we, in some ways, feel sympathetic or attracted to a particular attitude or philosophy. And that's kind of the way it really ought to be. But it is about developing a life philosophy 100%. So, clearly, you do philosophical thinking, who's your favorite philosopher? Eric Dates ** 31:31 I've got a few. I'd say probably Peter Drucker is at the forefront of what I love to read. I just love the way his mind works. Phenomenal stuff. And another gentleman who actually is the person who introduced me to Peter Drucker, his name is Flint McLaughlin. He, in my opinion, is just one of the most intelligent and intellectual marketing philosophers ever exist, and should go down in history as such, because he has, he brings such an interesting perspective on every concept of what we do and, you know, associated with the cognitive aspect of how the human beings make decisions. And just I just love the way that guy talks. So I can't listen to him enough. So those are probably my two. Michael Hingson ** 32:16 Yeah, I I've not met either. Course Now, Peter Drucker, not anyway. But what was it like meeting Peter Drucker? What kind of a person was he? Eric Dates ** 32:27 Well, I didn't get to meet him. Unfortunately. I wish i You Michael Hingson ** 32:29 were you were just introduced to him? Yeah. I was wondering, yeah, introduced sorry, to his to his works to his words. One of my favorite people is a guy named Patrick Lencioni. Are you familiar with him? Absolutely. And I like him, because I like the way he approaches teams. And one of the things that I say on a regular basis to people is that having now used eight guide dogs, I've learned so much more about team building and teamwork, from working with a guide dogs, and I've ever learned from Patrick Lencioni, Ken Blanchard, and all of the major experts on management, consulting and so on, because first of all, it is it is real, you you have to go right down into the weeds, if you will, you really have to put everything into practice. And when you're working with a dog, what you see is what you get, and that's the the thing that we lose with humans, because we're always just wondering, well, what's this person's real agenda, and can I trust them. And so we have taught ourselves to not be open to trust nearly as much as we can be. And dogs while they love unconditionally, as I've learned, I think over the years, just in observing them and thought about it, a lot, dogs do not trust unconditionally. But the difference between dogs and people is that dogs unless there is some real traumatic experience they've had to undergo, dogs, at least are open to trust. And that ought to be a great lesson, we all could learn Eric Dates ** 34:06 100% It's almost like with the amount of just from a macro level, the amount of untruthfulness that exists out there, and the amount of you know, false information tossed our way all the time from any which way we we're so cynical anymore, and I feel like consumers and just people in general have become so cynical and closed off as a as a reaction to that. So I to your point, I think having the humility there you because when you when you were saying that around the dogs, I just hear, you know, humility and humbleness to do so. And yeah, it's to get to that level would be it changed the world. Michael Hingson ** 34:48 The other thing about dogs is that they all do have just like people, different personalities. I had one guide dog that only worked 18 months and as I described her to people, she had sort of a type A personality and could not leave work at the office. So at home, she followed me around, she wouldn't play with the other dogs, she would actually curl her lip at the other dogs in our house if they wanted to play. And it got to the point where she was so much on all the time, that she became fearful and became actually afraid to guide, she just couldn't take the stress that she really imposed on herself. And there's a great lesson there for so many of us who are people that we ought to learn that we can control stress and fear a lot more than we do. Eric Dates ** 35:35 Absolutely. It's very interesting that, to see that I imagined in person, especially with with with an animal like that, you know, that's, that's going to be incredible. And with human beings. I think the the ability to clearly decipher between perception, and reality is what is at the root of that, because so many folks create this perception that they start to live it. And it compounds quickly, as you know, you know, talking about things like stress or whatnot, it's, it's almost addicted to itself. So yeah, having that ability to be humble, and inwardly reflect, but also know, I shouldn't react this way. Or I should actually be open to trusting this person, or whatever it may be. The simple decisions. Help starts with acknowledging the reality of the matter. Michael Hingson ** 36:28 Yeah, being a marketing guy, why do you think we're sort of progressing that way, as opposed to learning more humility and being a little bit more humble about what we do? Eric Dates ** 36:39 I think it's this subliminal mentality that stems from the screens, and in our hands every day that people are, everyone has a voice, and everyone is almost forced to listen to it. At this point, I feel like just based on habits, so as everyone welcomes all this information it wants into their mind. So unnatural, you know, in general, so it's, it creates a stressful environment on the human mind. And I think that aside, in the market, as a consumer, it's even more crazy, you know, people are giving you 85 different versions of a product to solve your problem. And they're all fantastic. What are you supposed to choose? Who are you supposed to believe? cetera, et cetera. And you know, that that stressful atmosphere that that atmosphere of cynicism and disbelief, of so many people are saying this, therefore, it must be wrong. It is now the status quo. And it's created just a very, very, very interesting shift in human behavior and consumer behavior across the board. And it's a little look a little nervous, to be honest, I think there's, there's that example of just because you can doesn't mean you should with certain aspects, tech and things like that to really engulf the human and almost make the reality irrelevant, and everything becomes digital. So I'm a little nervous about that. But we'd love to know your thoughts on where you think we're headed. Well, Michael Hingson ** 38:09 I think you're, you're right. And I think that, unfortunately, people who ought to know better and who can help, perhaps deal with some of it won't. One of my favorite examples lately has been observing, news reporting, and I'm going to deal with specifically whether prognostication hearing California. Yeah. Okay, I can tell you, it's probably see where I'm going. We, we hear all the time now, because we've had marine layers and a lot of clouds, the May gray in the June gloom. And one of these days, we'll get sun again. But it's horrible because we don't get the sunshine. And then when we do get the sun for any period of time, then they talk about how hot it is, and the fire potential goes up and so on. There's no pleasing them. And because there's no pleasing them, we aren't pleased and the reality is, the so called may gray and the June Gloom are, in part what has thus far although it's early in the season, of course, but thus far, kept us from having more wildfires. They've kept it cooler, there's been some rice stir, and there's there's no perspective we've lost our ability to, to have any kind of perspective. And now we've got, you know, with our politicians and talking about all the things that are going on in the political arena, everything has become so political, that there's no room to step back or we don't get the opportunity or we won't take I should say the opportunity to step back and go wait a minute. What are these people really saying what of this really makes a lot of sense, as opposed to what what is actually coming out? On the news, you know, we've been hearing about politicians being indicted and so on. But all that's political. And it doesn't matter what the evidence shows. And of course, we don't know all the evidence in some of the cases. And like, in everything that we do, we have just created such incredible shifts. One of the things I think about is Bill Cosby. So now he's got nine women who have accused him of rape and other things like that. And maybe it's all true. But you know, what the other side of Bill Cosby is, he was a very funny guy for many years. And now a lot of people would say, well, we just can't have anything of his around anymore, because look at the guy he's become, or Woodrow Wilson was a racist. And I participated in a program for a few years called the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Program, which was something that was created by an organization dealing with independent colleges. And they decided they had to drop the name Woodrow Wilson fellowship, because people started saying, Well, he was a racist. And maybe he was, but what about the rest of what he did? Or I collect old radio shows as a hobby. And I've seen a number of instances now where people are saying, well, Amos, and Andy should be completely thrown out because they're black. And they and the people who portrayed them were white and are totally misrepresenting black people. Really. We, we want to rewrite history, and not recognize the value that history brings. The The fact is with Amos and Andy, for example, in the 30s, and into the 40s. People would go on Saturday afternoons to the movie theaters for matinees. And when Amos and Andy came on, the show stopped, and everyone listened to Amos and Andy, the show was well loved. And the fact is that, was it really intentionally racist? Or was it entertainment that everyone laughed at and loved? It changed, of course, when Amos and he went to TV, and I didn't know that for a while, I didn't even know they were black. I didn't even think about it, you know, when the characters were, but it went to TV. And of course, then it was to people who who were black. And so that that caused a route. But the reality is that we don't put anything in perspective anymore, and look at all sides of things that we don't get to learn to do that. Because a lot of marketing, whether it's from the politicians or elsewhere, is all based on fear. And all they want to do is create fear reactions within us. Eric Dates ** 42:38 Yep. No, I completely agree. And, you know, it's funny, that you're mentioning that you feel like, if anyone tries hard enough, you can find frustration in anything, you can find the bad in anything. I mean, I'm wearing a baseball hat right now. So you look at a hat of all the history of a hat and the original purpose of hats, you know, you could probably associate some sort of negative historical context with a hat. Therefore, if you wear a hat these days, you're misrepresenting someone who used to exist. So I think it almost goes back to this accepted level of ignorance, in my opinion, in this in society, because it's, it's, I only know what I know. But what I think you should think, whether we know the same amount of information or whatever, I've learned the full spectrum, or whatever it is, they've convinced themselves that what they think is fact. And we all know what, you know, people say about opinions. I think that's where people should let things lay, you know, is is the opinion is just that and you are 100% allowed to have it. But the second you start finding, I'm not sure if I've mentioned this in the past, but I'm a huge student of it a psychologist out there right now who has concepts around herd mentality in the herd. So these days with digital communities, and you basically have entire access to the world in your hands. You can go find a herd just about anywhere for just about anything. Which is that a false perspective of what I think is correct. It has to be because here's this finite group of people, whether it's 100, or even 100,000, you know, in global terms, that's a miniscule number, but it's enough for them to validate their own idea to themselves. So then they start standing on this hill that they apparently want to die on saying, You must hear me from my position I have X amount of people behind me that also believe this therefore, everyone else must think the way that we think and when you when you apply this to marketing, you know, I love the Bill Cosby reference because you know, how many people did he make laugh? Right? How many times did he make people laugh? And then how quickly are people to once they learn about behind the curtain? Completely, just count everything that they've ever enjoyed. But I see so much of a hypocritical nature there. Because if you were someone who laughed, and then later or someone who's upset, I don't, to me, the logic doesn't add up. So in marketing, to me, this is a masterclass on branding is the second that the expectation that this person set is not actually met, your brand starts to take. So with the Bill Cosby thing, he was making people laugh, he was doing things he had his own persona, his own brand. But the second he deviated from that, and they found something negative, that differ from the expectation in their brain. They hate the guy can't stand him and everything he's ever touched is terrible. Michael Hingson ** 45:42 Rather than recognizing that what we really have are two things, what he was, and now what he is, which are two different things. Eric Dates ** 45:52 Correct. And people need to realize that they are two completely separate things. Michael Hingson ** 45:58 But you know, we've had people and over the last six years with with politics and so on during the Trump era, when reporters would say, but this is a fact. And then we hear, but there are alternative facts. They're there. They're challenging the definition of a fact. And that doesn't work that way. But unfortunately, once again, as you said, with the herd mentality, they've got enough of a herd that buys into it, that suddenly Well, there really are facts and alternative facts, rather than something that is factual. And what is an opinion. Eric Dates ** 46:37 It all goes back. And I completely agree, it goes back to the search for confirmation, versus the search for truth. And I feel like people constantly become a victim, especially in a world of the internet, where you can honestly go find the answer to anything you want to hear in the way that you want to hear it. Right. So it's like people are constantly in search of confirmation of please tell me that what I'm thinking is correct versus what is correct. And that is the that's the mentality shift that I'm a little cynical on is this where the broader group of consumers are headed, just based on behavior, which as you look at digital marketing, and SEO, and all these other things, it's a dangerous road, because you could start to preach something that's not necessarily true. But you could convince people that it is and boom, you're left with a fire festival in the marketing realm where everyone's super excited to come see these artists that no one's actually playing. Yeah, thanks for your money. Michael Hingson ** 47:34 Isn't it amazing? Well, and you know, last year, with all the stuff with Ticketmaster, and Taylor Swift and all that, a great performer. And still, it's a performance, it's entertainment. Yet people took it so personally, and of course, Ticketmaster, may very well have done some things that they shouldn't have done. But my gosh, the Dubrow over it was was incredible. There's, again, no, no medium, no midway, or no way to just try to put it in perspective and say, Okay, let's hold Ticketmaster responsible, but don't take it personally. Yes. Eric Dates ** 48:15 I feel like that's the, the the unfortunate reality that we all live in now, because of all types of media, whether it's social, whether it's on television, whether its political, whether it's not, it's PayPal, and finally understood, it's so much easier to get people riled up about something than it is to get them to come together and fix something right. They'd love to point fingers, they'd love to throw stones. But when it comes to kind of building what they need to build, in order to never have to throw a stone again. That's, that's someone else's job. It's not someone Michael Hingson ** 48:49 else's job. Whatever happened to Gandhi and be the change you want to see in the world? Eric Dates ** 48:54 That's true. I feel like some folks have been taking that a little differently these days. Michael Hingson ** 48:58 Yeah. Yeah, it's, it's amazing. Well, how are we going to change that? Do you have any thoughts or notions? Eric Dates ** 49:07 I really think it's, it's by doing what you just mentioned, you know, you know, studying God is truth there is once you become what you need. You don't need it anymore. Right? You've you've become it and you now are the solution. So if you want to be the change that you want to see, leading by example, is the only way to do that. And I think it's often scary because back to the herd mentality, if you deviate from the herd enough, you know, fight or flight instinct kicks in and all sudden you're out in the open. Everyone's looking at you and you're terrified to make decisions. And that's where courage and I think that's something that's really lacking in a lot of individuals these days, whether it's from fear, whether it's from uncertainty, whatever it might stem from, it's who has the courage to step up and just start doing the right thing, not not tweeting about it, not putting it under Social mean idea, you're actually doing it right not playing the game, throw the game away and change the game and say this is my domain. Now here's how I'm going to approach this, people will eventually follow suit, I just think we need it on a larger scale with the right people to do so in a way that it's not captured by me to say that this is cheesy, or this is something you poke fun at, because now you have a lot of a lot of enemies who have a lot of real estate in the mind, that you're going to have to kind of overcome. But I think those who stay true, you know, through your courage to the sticking place, if you will, you won't, you won't fail, and we won't fail, and everything will get to a much better spot, I just think we need to unlock and empower those leaders who are all out there that are trying to do this, I think we'll just be stronger as a group, versus kind of the single twig that can snap, you know, you bunch them all together, and boom, it's it's a log. Michael Hingson ** 50:58 Yeah. What kind of mindset do marketers need to establish within themselves to truly become successful and, and help bring that change about? And how do we make that happen? Eric Dates ** 51:13 That's it that is a tough one it but it's a fantastic question. Because it's something that a lot of people should ask themselves quite often. And it's always a fine line between you're hired to do a job, right? You're You're tasked with a business goal, if you have to grow us from X to Y, or from Y to Z, whatever may be in you know, ABC amount of time. Knowing that that's a task. I think it's just having the humility and courage to not cross into the gray area, where it becomes manipulation of, hey, I can, I can almost persuade you to go do something because you understand these powerful tools that you can unlock in the in the brain. So I think it's, it's really just be a amplifier of truth. Constantly, whether it whether the product is good or not. tell the true story. And set the right expectation of something that you can deliver on don't sell the vision. Right, that that's not your job. As a marketer, your job is to sell reality to that person, so they can make the right decision going back to your point in sales. And I think more people need to stay true to the craft of over deliver information, provide context, establish an expectation for what you can do, and what you will do. And let the people choose accordingly. Because that That, to me is the beauty of a free market. It's the beauty of when people can make decisions based on supply and demand because they put the demand in there, you know, in a world full of supply. Michael Hingson ** 52:54 Yeah, interesting concept of over deliver information. But it is relevant and true. And of course, it's also delivering the right information, which goes back to truth. And I don't personally think that there are really different kinds of truth. I think that it goes back to facts and alternative facts, there is truth. And what it really comes down to is we need to ask the right questions. And consumers need to learn to ask the right questions and maybe marketing and other people who are involved in setting the trends need to teach us how to ask and what to ask for the right questions. Eric Dates ** 53:38 Absolutely, it goes back to, to ethics and leading with that for if you truly want the customer to be first, I think to simplify it. do just that. Michael Hingson ** 53:55 Do you distinguish between? and I'm I'm thinking about this? Because I thought about the whole discussion that we had about sales and selling products and being truthful about that. How do you define or what do you think about the differences between personal success and professional success? Because that's an interesting thing. You're professionally successful if you're for your sales guy, for example, if you're selling lots of stuff and people are buying from you, but that doesn't necessarily lead to personal success and what's the difference? And what are they Eric Dates ** 54:27 another phenomenal question I think with with today's social atmosphere, and how we're constantly you know, being influenced if you will, which I think is a really really funny term. But these influencers out there who are you know, these people trust for a variety of reasons are created by created by the consumer themselves because again, it goes back to that search for confirmation of like, I think I want this but I need someone to tell me that this is the right thing to get So that's a really good, good question. Michael Hingson ** 55:05 Yeah, because in reality, rather than saying, I need somebody to tell me, it's the right thing, it would seem to me that what we should do is to say, I need to get the information from sources to decide whether it's the right thing or not. And if I'm not confident, then maybe there's something else I need to learn. And there's something there's nothing wrong with experts. There's nothing wrong with people who really no one has ever said. But by the same token, it still comes down to you should check all sides of it, whatever it happens to be, and then decide what the right thing is. Because the fact is that the right thing for you may not be the right thing for me. And that doesn't make the decision for either of us wrong. Eric Dates ** 55:52 Absolutely. And I think as we look at defining the personal side of success, I think becoming more aware of these things that exist in marketing, and in business alone, I mean, just just being a smarter consumer, in my opinion, today will help people gain that success, whatever that looks like. Because if you can't fall victim to marketing, manipulation, or you know, persuasion out in the market to go make decisions that you didn't necessarily want to make or wasn't the right one, because you were tricked, whatever it may be. I think that that realization of being cognizant of what's going on what those triggers are, so you don't fall victim to it, start to open up the right way to more clearly define what success looks like for that individual. Because now your mind is free. And to me, that's the precursor to personal success is how do you unlock your own mind, from a place of being controlled professionally, I think it's it to me, it's no different than sports in the way I believe this, it's, it's professionally is whatever your goals are for yourself in this role, whether you want to achieve the CEO or whatever you want to achieve. And you go get it like celebrate that win, because it's something you want it to go do for you to understand why totally different discussion. But if you if you, you know wholeheartedly believe that that's what you want to go do as a professional, you want to, you know, win a championship, win a Super Bowl, you want to have an exit with a, an acquisition, or m&a activity, whatever it may be. That's okay. That's a great goal professionally, but I think separating the two is where people start to win. Because they know that there are two difference. Because you know, professions only exist because of money. Right? If you really look at it, it's you're getting paid to do something, therefore you are professional. That's it. But as your personal stuff should be a little bit separate, in my opinion. But that's that's just my my thought on that matter. Michael Hingson ** 57:50 Well, I would agree and goals, by the way can evolve. So you may start out wanting to be a champion or acquire a company or become a CEO. And it may very well be that as you work towards something, you'll decide that well maybe that's really not what was best for me and you should be open to looking doesn't mean you have doubt, but you should be open to evaluating what you do regularly. You did. And you you migrated. And that seemed to work pretty well. You know, we call this unstoppable mindset what? What would you suggest to people in terms of how they can develop an unstoppable mindset, mindset. Eric Dates ** 58:31 Love that, to me is the word that stares me in the face is mind, right? Just the root of all of that comes to understanding your own mind. Not everyone else is just focused on your own right understand what makes you tick, understand what makes you frustrated, you know, put in the time of thinking every day and just challenge yourself understand things seek truth in yourself. Don't think validation or seek validation and other people's thoughts and opinions? Or or god forbid the internet. You know, really just be cognizant of who you actually are. And I think once you understand that there's your starting point, to start figuring out, how do I stay this person? Is it first of all, is this the person you want to stay? As? That's a great question to ask. But once you figure out that this is me, and this is who I want to be. That to me is is the unstoppable mindset part because now you're concrete in your conclusion that this is me, and I accepted and proud of who I am. And now everything else out there is just how do I go? Get it done? Because you already done the hard part of figuring out yourself Michael Hingson ** 59:47 and it is all about you understanding you and I totally agree with you. And that's a great way to bring this conversation to a close because I think it will give all of us a lot to think about out. And I do want to thank you for being here with us.

Welcome to the Hormone Prescription Podcast. Speaker 1 (01:08): Hi everybody. Welcome back to another episode of the Hormone Prescription. Thank you so much for joining me today as we dive into the deeper meaning of weight loss and creating health for women at midlife with Dr. Jessie Hehmeyer. The two quotes that I shared initially with you are two quotes she shared with me before we started the interview that I absolutely love that we're gonna dive into in the interview from JP Morgan and Mahatma Gandhi. Two very different people, but with somewhat similar philosophies on life. If you are going to lose weight or heal from a disease or get rid of the symptom first you have to decide that you're not gonna stay where you are. And that might mean that you're going to decide, decide comes from the Latin de cre to cut away from, which means to make a decision to cut away from all other possibilities. Speaker 1 (02:05): So you're going to decide that, that you're not gonna stay where you are. And there is this force in the universe that if you allow it will flow through you and produce miraculous results. So I'm so glad you're here because both she and I have experienced this and work with these concepts with our clients. Whether it's losing weight or healing from chronic fatigue of fibromyalgia or the myriad problems that women at midlife can face with their health, with hormonal poverty. We both embody and embrace these philosophies. She has another beautiful quote from Martha Graham that I can't wait to share with you. We talk about it in depth here and we talk about some physiological changes that you're gonna need to make if you're gonna lose weight and get optimally healthy at midlife as midlife as well. So I'll tell you a little bit about Dr. Speaker 1 (02:55): Jessie and then we'll get started. She has a very varied background. She has a master of science in human nutrition and functional medicine. She's a doctor of chiropractic medicine. She's an I F M Certified Practitioner Alliance, a licensed dietician, a certified nutrition specialist. So she has all kinds of experience and basically she has a great foundation and so depth and breadth of knowledge in how to help women lose weight and create optimal health, particularly at midwife. She shares her story with us in the interview and she's a true doctor, which comes from the Latin or dore meaning to teach, show, or point out, and understands that healing occurs when individuals understand the what, why, and how behind their health and treatment. Please help me welcome Dr. Jessie Hehmeyer to the show. Thank Speaker 3 (03:53): You so much, Kyrin. It is a pleasure to be here with you and your audience. Speaker 1 (03:58): So much to talk about. So let's dive right into it. And I always like to start to give everyone a frame of reference to help them understand why they are so passionate about helping people with weight, about helping people become empowered when it comes to their health and their lives. And how did your path lead from, 'cause you've got chiropractic and fitness and nutrition and all kinds of stops on your journey of expertise. So how did it lead you to what you do now? Well, Speaker 3 (04:30): It led me there very personally as, as I'm sure it does for most people. And what I mean by that, Kyrin is for me, I really struggled with my weight for over a decade and not my weight in a sense that it was a health concern, right? I wavered, I was probably 15, 20 pounds that I would gain and lose over the course of over and over again over the course of multiple years. And for me, over that time period, I really got what a cost the struggle was for me, right? I got that it was interfering with me being fully present in life. It was interfering with me, fully contributing to life. And that just wasn't okay with me. So when I got clear that I was done struggling in this area of my life, it became about something else. It became not about the scale triumphing in this area of my life, it became around about being present and fully contributing. Speaker 3 (05:30): And so with that as my north star and really getting, just having this area of my life handled, I began to approach it from a place of questions rather than drill sergeant discipline, which never seemed to turn out well, right? And never seemed to turn out well when I took out the, the stick and started beating myself up and, and telling myself I I had to give up X, Y, Z and did so for a period of time and then in, in, in invariably at a certain point just broke my resolution broke and would end up right back where I was. And so I really saw that approach wasn't broke, was broken. And so I got curious about what a new approach might approach might look like that would lead me to a future where simply put this area of my life was handled right. It just wasn't a struggle. I felt great in my body. I felt good about how I looked and really fundamentally all those things about being a, an access to being fully present and contributing. Speaker 1 (06:30): Yeah, I love that. It's, boy did I beat myself up also about the wave. So when that internal inner critic would be like, you're bad if you eat this and you're bad if you don't, I'd say, oh, I'm not going to eat X, Y, or Z and then by four o'clock I'm eating it. And then, oh, you're bad. And all this shame. And it wasn't until I said, okay, I'm just gonna try and get healthy. Forget losing weight and then use the the same functional principles that you use as well as really the a spiritual approach. What is the weight about that I finally lost it to? And so here you are and you are helping people become empowered with their health and empowered in their life. And you shared some amazing quotes that I absolutely love before we started the episode that I think really get to the, a concept that I think everybody must embrace if they're going to experience the healing, health and vitality that is available to them, that is their birthright, that is possible so that they can live fully and give their gifts. And so I'm wondering if you can share that quote from Martha Graham and then we can talk about what that means. Speaker 3 (07:50): Absolutely. It would be my pleasure. So the quote by Martha Graham, there is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world would not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others. Speaker 1 (09:00): I had Joe bumps the whole time you were reading that. So can you talk a little bit about what this means when it comes to weight loss, when it comes to health, when it comes to living your life? Speaker 3 (09:12): To me it really, that quote really captures what a precious gift this life is. This life, our bodies, this opportunity to be here. It, it's nothing short of magic. And when we're really present to the gift that it is to be alive, we start to be in a different relationship. What it means to do our best to preserve that gift, right? When we're present to the wonder, the awe and the magic of this life, we're more likely to operate in our actions in a way that honors this life. And that's a journey. It's not an overnight A to Z event. It is a looking at, okay, how might I honor this gift called life based on where I am right now? And and I'm sure you'd say the same thing, ki right, the actions that I took when I started my own personal journey, born of self-love, are different than the actions that I take now simply born out of evolution. Right? That's totally natural. That's totally okay. And and I really see moving forward is the encouraged next step rather than approaching this as if it's either perfection or bus. Speaker 1 (10:32): Yeah, I, I think it's such a beautiful statement about who we are and what we are on this planet to do. I do believe we each have a unique calling and soul blueprint and gifts that we're meant to deliver. And if we don't deliver them, they'll never be delivered by someone else because only we can deliver them. And I, I tell the women who I work with in my programs that I'm sneaky. I, I wanna get you healthy 'cause I know you're suffering and I wanna stop, help you to stop suffering. And I know that you're sitting on gifts. You're sitting on assets, right? You're sitting on your at assets that the world needs. And I think it's the Dalai Lama who's quoted as saying the Western woman will save the world. And I believe it's the western middle aged and menopausal woman because we've got experience and we have a balanced viewpoint and we have fairness and justice and equanimity and we have experience in our chosen professions that we've been working in for decades. And then we have solutions to a lot of the problems that we're struggling with right now that come from a divine feminine perspective, not a pick tree iCal perspective that probably could help us. And I really enjoy helping women, I only work with women, I know you work with men too, really see that you getting yourself healthy is about more than just for you for your selfish needs. It's about you getting yourself healthy for humanity. Mm-Hmm. . And so you can deliver your gifts. Speaker 3 (12:11): Yeah. This is, yeah. So well said. Right? This is the opportunity right now. This is the opportunity to deliver your gifts. And Speaker 1 (12:21): I love the part where she talks about it's not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. Because so many women, when they do get healthy, then they're looking around, oh, what do I wanna do as my creative project? What do I want my legacy to be? And then they look, well, that's been done. That book's been written, that business has been made that no, it hasn't been done by you. Mm-Hmm , Speaker 3 (12:47): There is only one unique you and there's, the way you do it is going to be different the way than the way anyone else does it. Absolutely. And there's an abundance of people hungry for contribution. Speaker 1 (13:00): It's true. And the people who are gonna resonate with your frequency, 'cause you have a unique energetic frequency, are going to be drawn to you and they're only gonna hear certain things from you. They're not gonna hear it from Sally or Tom or Peter. Right. They're only gonna hear it from you. So I'm wondering if you can talk about this in the context of finding what you call your middle ground and ditching the all or nothing approach when it comes to health and healing and weight loss. What does that mean? Speaker 3 (13:33): Yeah. So the broken all or nothing approach, this is the inherited approach around our health and food in our bodies that's most prevalent when it comes to weight. And you know how this is lived is whole 30 followed by deep dish pizza and a bottle of wine on day 31, right? Like that would be a, a pretty clear example of the all or nothing approach in really, if we think about those two extreme actions, we're looking at deprivation or overindulgence. And for most people, those are the two options they're familiar with in this area of life. It's all in or all out. And a few problems with that is fundamentally speaking, they don't work. And by work I mean they don't allow people the opportunity to produce and sustain the health outcomes that matter most to 'em. So if you can't sustain the outcomes, to me, it's not a solution. Speaker 3 (14:32): Right? Secondly, they're born of self aggression, right? And self aggression really is not a solution for just about anything as far as I've ever found out for myself. So the broke and all or nothing approach is born of self aggression. And when I work with people, it's really stepping into a journey, a guided journey of authoring your middle ground. And your middle ground is finding that way of caring for your body and your life that allows you to integrate all of who you are and fully experience the joy of life, experience, the joy of being with others and celebrating with others while also moving towards the future you intend for your health and your life. And that journey is born of self-love. So it's just a real different way of operating. And it's not one that comes naturally for most people, right? Especially the people who I work with who've struggled in this area of their life for years or decades. It really takes some work not just to understand, okay, these are the actions, right? But stepping into a no way new way of relating with oneself and the actions that are working and the actions that aren't working from a place of kindness. Speaker 1 (15:49): So what does that look like? Can you give an example maybe from a client you've worked with or clients, because I think we talk about this concept of self love and stop beating yourself up and you're so hard on yourself. I'm a former hard on yourself member, right? And I didn't really understand what people were saying. You're so hard on yourself. What do you, what does that mean? Oh, you just have to love yourself. Well what does that look like? How do you do that ? So can you talk a little bit more in detail about the nuts and bolts of that journey? Speaker 3 (16:22): Yeah, no, that's funny that you were a member of the so hard on yourself plan, because I think I saw you at one of the so hard on yourself meetings, Speaker 1 (16:28): , you look familiar, Speaker 3 (16:31): But yeah. Yeah. So to me, where it all, where the journey, the new journey begins is getting very clear on your intention for your health and your life. And in a practical experiential sense, when I work with people and I invite your listeners to engage in this exercise, maybe write it down and, and do it later. But the first step is doing a little time traveling to a five-year future and actually writing the story of your health, your life, you as you intend and desire it occur, right? So telling the story in first person present tense, right? So I'm 46, I'd say I'm 51. And whatever's there for me about this five year future, I intend my body's healthy, strong, resilient in also tapping into what it is to live in your body at that moment, right? I walk across a, I walk through life confident and connected to others and the divine, however, you as an individual would say your experience would be in this five year future. Speaker 3 (17:45): So really painting this picture of your intended five-year future. So that's the first step is getting clear on your intended future. Now, there is another side of this coin and that's getting clear on what the likely, or perhaps we might say possible downward spiral five-year future would look like with no action, no change. What does it look like to be you in five years and how your body is, some people might have an idea about their health risks, like actually numbers around diabetes or heart disease or whatever the case might be, as well as your experience, right? The experience of defeat or betrayal or shame or whatever's there for people. And it's useful because they're both possible futures, right? And, and for most of us, we make change out of the carrot dangling as well as the stick on the back and not the stick on the back. Like we wanna beat ourselves up or, or scare ourselves. But it's really useful to look at what could the five-year future be like if I don't do anything and Yeah. Right. Speaker 1 (18:56): And then sobering, very sobering. Speaker 3 (18:58): Yes. Yes. And for some people quite literally, right? And from that I engage in an exercise with people that I call creating your vision of vitality that is really fundamentally based off of your intended future. It's really a condensed version, capturing your intention for your health and your life. And with that intention present, we start to navigate what it is to live with that as your north star. And that includes along the way capturing numbers, so actual lab work so that we can understand where you are relative to the desired future, what's the gap here? And also start to inform you what effective actions, what are the new actions that you'll need to bring into your life and begin practicing over and over again over time to live into that five-year future we want for you. And along that journey, when I'm working with people, I give them homework assignments. I call them fulfillment exercises. 'cause Some people get, get afraid when, you know, get scared when they hear the word homework. But they might be something more spiritual in nature. They might be something more informational in nature. Like what does insulin do? Scientific based exercise. But whatever it is, I choose for the person in front of me because I believe it's going to be an important puzzle piece in their journey ahead. Yeah. Speaker 1 (20:31): And then when you have that vision and that intention of who you're becoming on that heroine's journey, then every choice that you make in the present day is informed by that. And then you say, the woman who I'm becoming, she doesn't freak out 'cause it's four o'clock and she's hungry and she's not planning to eat dinner till seven. She drinks a glass of water or a glass of tea and keeps Yes. Keeps moving. Yeah. Speaker 3 (21:00): Absolutely. No, that's a great example, Karen. Absolutely. Yeah. Or the woman I'm becoming, if she suddenly in a moment of not being present comes to it and has, oh my gosh, I've just had two or three pieces of two or three cookies, she doesn't finish off the row. Right? Right. Speaker 1 (21:19): , she actually Speaker 3 (21:20): Puts it away and then grabs a, a glass of water and has a conversation with herself. Whatever's the useful conversation of that moment, both acknowledging, okay, maybe what led to that, oh, I, I didn't eat lunch, I was starving, right? And, or I was go at work, whatever it was, so that she can self-correct in the future, right? She can set herself up to live more aligned in the future. Mm-Hmm. Speaker 1 (21:47): So I want everybody listening to notice that we've been talking for about 20 minutes, we haven't talked about what diet you need to follow to lose weight. We haven't talked about what tests you need to get out of hormonal poverty. We haven't talked about anything other than the philosophy, the spirituality, the emotionality, the thought patterns, the belief patterns, the intentions, the energy around creating health. And so I hope that you've noticed that now some of you're Jones and for the diet tip of the day. 'cause You're like, I'm gonna go on, I'm gonna hear what's the one thing, what's the one thing everybody's looking on, Dr. Google, what's the one pill I need to take? The one supplement, the one diet? It doesn't exist, it just doesn't exist. Health is a state of wholeness. It's mental wholeness, emotional wholeness, spiritual wholeness, physical wholeness. So the only way to create that is by unpacking each of these areas and examining everything under the hood and then rearranging it and supplementing it and repacking it so that it can get you to that vision and intention. So I just wanted to point that out. Speaker 3 (23:02): Well said. Very well said. Yes. And, and the thing is, is for the people jonesing for the quick fix diet, right? Just notice what the diet industry is. I mean it's nothing if it's not quick fix, do this solutions. And yet it's, it's a multi-billion dollar industry that doesn't seem to be able to produce the outcomes and promises, Speaker 1 (23:27): Right? I think most diet programs have a 6% success rate at two years. And so this multi-billion dollar diet industry just works on profit off of churn. You lose the weight, you gain the weight, you lose the weight, you gain the weight, and you never truly become healthy and have vitality. And so the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. That didn't stop me when I weighed 243 pounds. I tried all the programs , right? You know, the Fen and the Jenny Craigs and the Nutrisystems and working out like crazy and fasting and all that stuff. I know you gotta do the things you gotta do until you finally come to this place of powerlessness and you go, I don't know the answer. And I think this place of surrender is when you can finally be handed a solution that works, that isn't a self aggressive solution and beat you into submission, but it's a self-loving solution. Speaker 1 (24:24): And you can really start to look at, well what has the weight meant in my life? Like I know for me that was a huge thing and it was protection. And I find that's true for a lot of women. I know in the ACE study that they did a Kaiser Permanente, I think there was an offshoot of it, another doctor looked at all the data and found that like 80% of the women who had overweight or obesity had been sexually abused as children. And that ended up was a part of my story, but I didn't know that. So then I could start loving myself and saying, oh, well if the, my need for protection is getting served by this layer of fat that I have around me, how can I serve that need for protection in another way so I can thank the fat doing its job and then let it go. So I love how you talk about journaling and writing your future at its best, your future at its worst. And I love to have people journal and dialogue with their fat or their body part. Like I, I've worked with a lot of women that have frozen shoulder and I like to have them dialogue with the frozen shoulder. What's going on? What did you come here to tell me? Said, Speaker 3 (25:31): And one of the things I love about what you just shared, Karen, is that you really got that, the holding on of the weight, it really came from such a good place, right? Yeah. It really came from such a good place and you were able to self dialogue and see that good place, acknowledge that good place it was coming from, and also get that there was a way to fulfill that very natural human need to feel safe and one that was born quite young, right? And do it in a way that still allows you physically, emotionally to thrive. Speaker 1 (26:12): Yeah. So I think I, I love that we're having this conversation because I love that everybody listening is hearing that health is about so much more than what supplements to take, what tests to do, what diet to follow. It is about you and who you are and your story and where it's been and where you're going and how you feel or how you don't feel. So I love that. And I love this other quote that you shared. I'm wondering if we could talk about that. I love a good quote, but from Mahatma Gandhi, there is a force in the universe which if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results. Talk a little bit about that . Well, Speaker 3 (26:53): For me, Kieran, when I, at about 26 years old or so throughout my hands and surrender and really devoted myself to figuring out this area of my life, I did so inside of a request. I asked what I would call the divine to collaborate to help me. And I made a promise that if the divine would help me, I would use my learnings to, to guide and help others. So to me, that lived experience is beautifully expressed in Gandhi's quote. And I, I'm sure, I'm sure you've had similar experiences that's throwing up your hands and surrender the surrendering to the divine doesn't mean you don't do anything. It actually opens up the energy for the right people to come into your life to teach you something, the right book to come into your life to teach you something, the right overheard conversation walking down the street to just all the things that you could never plan no matter how hard you try to show up inside of your commitment. Yes. Speaker 1 (27:56): Yeah. I had that moment after I, it was actually one of my patients who I had done the prescription, what I call the prescription tango with her, gave her sleeping pill, antidepressant, birth control pill, all the things, at midlife because she felt terrible. And she came back and she's like, yeah, it's not really helping me, but you know, as a board certified OB, G Y n I didn't really have much else to offer her except pills and surgery. And then she came back a year later and she was like a brand new woman and she said she had gone to this other doctor who had done all these tests. I never offered her to these treatments. And I'm thinking, how is there something I don't know about? I've been told by the certifying board of American Specialties that I know more about women's health than anybody else. Speaker 1 (28:40): Anyway, she had brought me one of Suzanne Summer's books and I wasn't gonna read it. I took it home and I was like, I'm not gonna read this book by Chrissy on three's company. But it sat there in my nightstand for a long time. And then one Saturday my kids were, came in and said, we're going to the movies. Like they didn't even bother asking me if I wanted to go anymore because they knew mom when she wasn't working, she was gonna be parked in her pajamas in bed 'cause she was sleeping and tired all the time. 'cause I had chronic fatigue and, and I read that book at first I was very reticent and prejudiced and then I started reading it like it was the Da Vinci Code, like the best mystery novel I ever read. And I finished it that day. I think the sun had just gone down. Speaker 1 (29:24): And I had one of those moments, I said, God, whatever you believe in the divine God, Buddha, Jesus, whatever. And I said, I'm going to use this and if it works, I'm gonna spend the rest of my life teaching other women about this. And then that prayer, that's a simple prayer, right? It calls in resources and possibilities that were previously closed to you now start opening up chance meetings, coincidences, so-called coincidences. And sometimes you have to come to that point of surrender and that force in the universe if you allow it and you don't keep going back to do the same you've been doing. Speaker 3 (30:06): Right. And it takes courage and it does. It takes a li it takes courage. It takes, sometimes it takes just getting sick of ourselves and even getting sick of ourselves. It still takes courage to, to surrender. Speaker 1 (30:19): It does. And I love it fits great with this other quote you have from , getting somewhere to decide you're not going to stay where you are. And so I'm not doing this anymore. And to whatever higher power you believe in, just say, I'm not doing this anymore. You need to show me the way. And I, I literally will say that out loud to whatever angels who work with me in the light, whoever's listening, I'm not doing it this anymore. So you show me. Yeah. And then stuff starts happening. Speaker 3 (30:49): It's true. It's things we cannot explain. It's very true. Speaker 1 (30:53): So let's give, I think we've talked a lot about the kind of nebulous, esoteric stuff that everyone avoids and doesn't want to talk about with health. So I think we need to be talking about it. But is there anything you'd like to share just from a root cause resolution, science-based approach that people might consider when it comes to losing weight, creating health? Speaker 3 (31:16): Yeah, absolutely. On the physiological front, I, I'm sure everything I'm about to say, Kieran, you are gonna completely nod your head with, right? But when I think about three recurring physiological barriers to weight loss, when, well, I should preface this by saying, sorry ladies, it's probably not your thyroid and like everybody, I feel like, I don't know if you experience this, like everybody wants it to be their thyroid because they're like, then I'll just start taking medication. They'll be easy, right? And like the thing is, is even if it's your thyroid, it's not just your thyroid, it's Speaker 1 (31:54): Not just your thyroid. In Speaker 3 (31:55): Other words, absolutely true. If your thyroid, if your your thyroid's underactive, if you need thyroid support, you should definitely get thyroid support. Absolutely. Absolutely. But it's probably not the keys to the kingdom you think and hope it will be. And so with that as the preface, the the three things, assuming your thyroid is well supported, well-functioning that I see with some recurring frequency is the first one is compromised insulin sensitivity, which is very different than lab normal, right? Lab normal's usually up around 19 for fasting insulin, I like to see fasting insulin seven or less. And so if that insulin is high single digits or in the double digits, we know we have an opportunity on the table to help your body be better at burning fuel rather than storing fuel. That's one of the foundational things I look at. Another thing that I see with some frequency is elevated inflammation, right? Speaker 3 (32:56): Sometimes people will come in and say, oh, I'm so inflamed. And I'll ask them about how it feels and maybe they'll say, my joints hurt or I'm bloated or my skin's red. They'll say something, we'll still go test the numbers also. But really the point is that mostly people don't experience any real symptoms when they're inflamed. The only way we know is by doing their labs and H S C R P is the number one go-to I look at with regards to inflammation, but also homocysteine. And when those elevate, when the H SS C R P that that inflammatory markers elevate in particular, it will absolutely slow down the metabolism. When I see this in time and again with women who, they come in and we like to see H S C R P 1.5 or less ideally under one, but that's the sweet spot range we're looking for. Speaker 3 (33:49): And I, I'm starting to work with someone who's H S C R P, we learn after her labs or seven or eight. I let them know, listen, it might be a few mo months before you start to see the scale move because the first order of business is breaking this vicious cycle of inflammation and then your body's just gonna take care of itself. But that's what we have to go get after first. And we do that in a lot of different ways. But fundamentally speaking, when that inflammation is elevated, first of all, people often, more often than not, don't have any symptoms and it's gotta be addressed in order to have the scale move. And then the number three is, I like to call it detoxification pathways gunked up, right? And that just, that shows up in a lot of different ways, right? That can show up as hormonal irregularities that can show up as just playing into that inflammatory process where there are more toxins in the body than ideal, which are driving inflammation. Speaker 3 (34:48): And that's never just like, there's not just one test I look at for to assess detox pathways, but a lot of different things. I look at what does your, detoxification is such a chic word, but we know that detoxification though, there are multiple physiological processes that allow this to happen in the body. And so I wanna understand, does the body have the essential nutrients to run the engine of detoxification, whether that's amino acids or B 12 or all the different things we need to in order to, to run the, run those gears nice and smoothly. And then also are those toxins getting out of the body. Another simple check for that is with someone having daily bowel movements, right? We know that our bowel movements are one of the primary ways we get out of, get toxins out of the body and in by toxins. It's not just pollutants and things we encounter in our environment, our hormones that we produce ourselves, or if people are taking some kind of using some kind of H R T or oral contraceptive, those, all those hormones go through our detox pathways also. So to have those running nice and smoothly is really foundational to supporting weight loss and also what comes after weight loss. Speaker 1 (36:06): Yes. When you said that about thyroid, I was envisioning people throwing tomatoes at this stage going boo, yes. I did this podcast episode, I guess it was about a year ago, called Why You Will Never Fix Your Thyroid By Trying to fix Your Thyroid . Speaker 3 (36:24): Oh, I love that. That is great. Speaker 1 (36:28): And it's the thyroid is just the innocent bystander, so I love that. But so there you have it, right? You just laid out the nutshell of all the things I like to say that you've got to do physiologically. But what I find is that people can rarely do the things that they need to do physi for their physiology and biology when they don't have the energy, right? Because everything at its essence is energy. And so that energy is your thoughts, your feelings, your beliefs, your history of your story that you're carrying around in your body and energetic packets. 'cause You've never unpacked it, most of us. And so you really need to address that. And then when you address that, the physiology you can very easily take care of. It's becomes simple. Speaker 3 (37:15): Absolutely. Yes. Well said. Speaker 1 (37:18): So tell everyone all the places they can find you online and interact with you. Speaker 3 (37:22): Yes.

Do not Mess up Your Testimony “I could not tell him that then,” Gandhi replied, “because three days ago I was also eating sugar!” Read Ecclesiastes 10:1-20 Believers must be vigilant because sin can mess up their testimony V. 1 With God there is forgiveness and restoration when we confess our sins and turn back to Him – but some foolish actions we engage in have ongoing consequences and limit the rest of our earthly impact. Embrace godly choices and avoid foolish behavior V. 2-7 But Solomon is speaking here of making right choices that honor God instead of wrong choices that are sinful and dishonor God. “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” -Prov. 15:1 Prepare for what you will be facing so you will be ready V. 8-11 If you need to chop down some trees, sharpen your ax first, and you'll have a better go of it than those who just swing away zealously with a dull blade. If you don't learn how to deal with snakes, they will bite you before you learn how to deal with them! Think before you speak and don't talk too much! V. 12-15 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. -Eph. 4:29 When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise. -Prov. 10:19 Don't celebrate until the work is finished! V. 16-20 The proper time to celebrate is after the work that needs to get done is gotten done. The proper way is to celebrate in such a way that relationships are strengthened and nobody gets drunk. Drunkenness is forbidden in the Bible, but not all use of alcohol. However, strong words of caution are given, along with many examples of alcohol use leading to sin (Noah, Lot, etc…). I believe based on the Scriptures and scientific findings that almost everyone will be best served by reducing or eliminating the use of alcohol in their life. There are plenty of non-alcoholic ways to celebrate!

Gandhi said that the "best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." Jess Rambo is a creative force behind the Painted Buffalo. She's a Marine Corps veteran who has taken her artistic skill and passion and applied it to the veterans community. Her love of art and love for veterans meets in the middle to create opportunities for vets to tell their stories. It doesn't matter if the story is ever heard by anyone else, it simply matters that they are able to express themselves. Jess hit the road at the beginning of COVID in a school bus, she renovated for her family to live in. Along the way they hit 38 states, 30 national parks and over 300 meetups for veterans all the while meeting over 1200 individual veterans . Her Paint Can Project provides veterans with socks, water bottle shirts, and art supplies meant to encourage them to open up, begin a journey and tell their story. Today Jess and her children call North Georgia home. She has an even larger and more grandiose vision of what her service can become. She is creating a homestead for her family, her animals, and the veterans to commune, create and connect. Jess has lost herself in the service of others. And we all benefit from the self she's finding a new.
In this new podcast, Rev Karla explores the profound concept of leading with love in every aspect of life. She recently was a guest on Jalon Johnson's podcast, Not Your Ordinary Parts. During their time together, Jalon made this impactful comment, "I just want to lead with love," which is the inspiration for this podcast. Rev Karla discusses quotes from spiritual leaders who lead with love: Jesus, Buddha, Rumi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Gandhi, Lao Tzu, and she explores 10 principles she's developed for leading and living a life centered around love. These principles include forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, kindness, empathy, and self-care. She emphasizes the importance of empathy and understanding and embracing others' experiences and choosing love as a guiding force in all decisions and actions. Rev Karla encourages listeners to reflect on their own paths to living a life guided by love. You can read more from Rev Karla on this topic in this week's blog post and watch the uncut version of this episode on her YouTube channel.
The past sixty years have been an unusual blessing, thanks to penicillin, Salk's Polio Vaccine, and other Wonder Drugs. Death by disease is a normal part of the human condition. To pretend otherwise is delusional. No government's power can prevent us from being crippled and killed by nature. Tyranny cannot save us from the realities of human life. Never again must we permit ourselves to be corralled and branded like cattle. If our leaders ever again try to exploit a crisis like COVID for political gain, we must engage in a campaign of total and absolute Civil Disobedience, as did Gandhi and MLK when faced with injustice.Would you like to share your thoughts with Ralph?

In this episode of, we delve into the profound concept of adaptive coaching and explore the idea that being a coach means being who your clients need you to be. Our guest, Ankush Jain, founder of AJC Coaching School and Powerful Men's Immersion, is one of the world's most renowned coaches who has also been called the modern Gandhi.Join us as we navigate the dynamic landscape of coaching and discover how the power of adaptability can truly make a difference in the lives of both coaches and their clients. The episode begins with Ankush talking about his journey before he became a coach, he talks about having a corporate job and being the representative of a company to connect with other people and make deals. He talks about what coaching means to him, how coaching means helping someone have a different future than the default path you're on. He speaks about ending up with a better outcome than you would've gotten had you not hired a coach. Ankush discusses the difference between a coach and a mentor, about how a mentor guides you and suggests things that you can do. He talks about how he finds that some of the best coaches don't do pure coaching, it's about being whatever the client needs you to be at the moment. He shares how helping clients to him is more important than doing things the right way He speaks about how he became a coach who has people waiting for him all around the world, and how he took what Steve Hardison said to not look for high-value clients but instead be a high-value coach.
