THINK Business with Jon Dwoskin
Joe Macleod is the Founder at andEnd, the world's first product ending business dedicated to helping companies create the best offboarding experiences (endings) for their customers. They work with hundreds of companies, including giants like Microsoft, Pepsico, Spotify, Intuit, IKEA, and Volvo, to ensure good endings to their customer relationships. All products face a cycle of endings, from breakage to customer burnout to falling behind consumption trends, but the end of the customer experience is often overlooked by many businesses. They're instead obsessed with their onboarding experience, which they spend a lot of time and money perfecting to attract new customers. What they don't know is that investing in good customer endings can improve new business models, increase consumer engagement, raise customer satisfaction, broaden business influence and brand perception, pre-empt legislation (such as GDPR, which empowered consumers) and maximize sustainability. Joe is also the author of the Ends.: Why we overlook endings for humans, products, services and digital. And why we shouldn't, which iFixIt called the best book about consumer e-waste and Endineering: Designing Consumption Lifecycles That End As Well as They Begin. He has 20+ years experience in product development across digital, physical, and service sectors and previously was the Head of Design at the award-winning studio Ustwo, where he built and led one of the industry's most respected design teams, with studios in London, New York, Sweden, and Sydney.

By the time Russell Lester landed inside Intuit's department of analysis in 2009, the unremarkable career path on which he had first set out nearly 10 years earlier had become brimming with possibilities. Back in the early 2000s, Lester tells us, he was hired by the company Harland Clarke (now Vericast) as an analyst specializing in customer information and insights. “This was not traditional finance, and I was sort of tiptoeing around what we would broadly call ‘analytics' today,” remembers Lester, who notes that his adeptness with data analysis eventually resulted in his assignment to a role responsible for pioneering the company's performance management discipline, which subsequently helped to open the door to Harland's financial planning and analysis function. At the time when a recruiter for Intuit called, Lester was responsible for overseeing Harland's FP&A discipline. It seemed that one of Intuit's divisional presidents was seeking to hire a senior finance executive with a distinguished data insight and analysis resume. “I had the FP&A background, and at the same time it was clear that I had been involved with things that touch the customer as well as the go-to-market team,” recalls Lester, whose career at Intuit is notable in part for his inclusion on the due diligence team involved in the headline-grabbing sale of Intuit's financial services data insight division to private equity firm Thoma Bravo for more than $1 billion. No longer an anomaly, Lester's customer-centric, data insight resume was now capable of opening doors to both senior finance and operational roles. In 2017, Lester accepted a VP of marketing operations position with Keap, a CRM applications vendor that immediately tasked him with establishing a single source of truth for data across the organization. It wasn't long before Lester's world was once again intersecting with the finance function, a development that eventually led to broader planning and analysis responsibilities across both operations and finance. A couple of years later, Keap found itself in search of a new finance leader—a development that Lester was monitoring somewhat passively until a mentor challenged him to throw his hat in the ring. “He told me that he thought that I was already ‘doing the work' and that I should have a conversation with board—so I did,” explains Lester, who would be named CFO of Keap in early 2020. Reflecting on the career path behind him, Lester can't help but draw our attention to the quarries of customer information that he once mined daily. Says Lester: “We all perhaps have heard the advice ‘Connect yourself to numbers, and you will always have a job.' Well, someone once told me: ‘Connect yourself to the customer, and you will never go hungry.'” –Jack Sweeney

My name is Austin Adams, and thank you so much for listening. Today we have several articles that we're gonna discuss. The very first one being that Moscow, the Kremlin in Vladimir Putin believe that the US was behind the drone attack. At an attempted assassination attempt, I'm Vladimir Putin's life. We will discuss that. We will also discuss the US Navy enlisting a drag queen as a digital ambassador to attract more. Recruits. Hmm. I can't believe I just said those words. Uh, the very next thing that we're gonna discuss is going to be a article that came out. There was a situation that happened in New York on a subway train that several people, lots of, lots of people are talking about this right now. Um, there was what seemingly was like, um, a drugged out, uh, homeless man who ended up getting put into a rear naked choke by some bystander. And that turned into him losing his life. So we'll discuss that and look at the details as that as well. Then what I wanna talk about a bit today too is Robert F. Kennedy Jr. I want to get into some of the recent quotes that he's had, some of the things that he's said and some of the claims that he's made about what he would do if and when. He becomes president. So all of that and more today. But first, I need you to hit that subscribe button. If you are new here. Leave a five star review.

I believe that will be an every single. Week episode here on the Adams Archive, where we will be interviewing different people from different timeframes and even realms and fictional characters with some awesome questions. So let me know if you liked it. Leave a five star review, write something in the comments about it, because I want to know. I need some feedback guys. I haven't heard much about it, so give me some feedback. If you like that episode and. The last thing is head over to Anti elite.club and you can get some awesome, awesome apparel, including a Pelosi capital hat, which says Insider trading since 1970, whenever the hell Pelosi got into office. So there's that. There's our Protect the Children hoodie and more. All right, so without further ado, let's jump. Intuit. All right. The very first article that we're gonna discuss is coming from Reuters and it says, Russia believes the US was behind the Kremlin drone attack. In Kiev, what was believed to be an assassination attempt on Vladimir Putin's life. Now I have my own thoughts about this. We'll get into this article in just a minute here, but if you saw the video on this, there was a video of this little flying object flying right over the Kremlin. Uh, and exploding. Right. A right on the flagpole. Right, right, right. On the very position of the building that you would have known that this was the Kremlin. Okay, so. I think it's an interesting idea here that this could have been a false flag. I absolutely think that this situation, I don't see any way anyhow, that a drone gets that close to that building with Vladimir Putin. In it. Okay. I also don't see how, and, and then what you see in this video is it flies towards this flagpole and then it just explodes in this tiny little explosion out of, you know, for nothing that you see in the air for any reason that it explodes, but it just randomly explodes right over the flag. Okay, so what some people are saying is they believe that it was a false flag attack, and I tend to agree with this, with the way that it all went down. I don't think that you're killing Vladimir Putin with a tiny little drone in their, you know, their, their capital building or their White House type building. Okay? Just, just doesn't make sense to me. I don't think that that's how you're going about that if you're Ukraine. Okay. Now, on the other side of that, He is blaming the United States and Ukraine for this, right, and saying that, you know, and, and some people believe that he's doing this. As a false flag in order to gain popular opinion. Um, that's coming up to their celebration day. I forget what the name of it is. Basically when they law or they won the war over Germany. Uh, I believe it's, what is it? Parade day or something like that. Um, but I believe that this, that that's what happened. I believe this was a false flag. Now, if it's not, you know, I don't think it changes the outcome very much. I think we're gonna see. Retaliation by Vladimir Putin in Russia as a result of this. I don't think that we'll see it against the United States, but. Could you imagine if they now start going after Zelensky specifically and targeting him? Right. And we all know Russia could level Ukraine in just a matter of minutes. Right? So it's so weird to me, right? We talk about how this war is going and, and how basically imagine getting in a fist fight with somebody, but only flicking them. That's, that's what this war seems like to me, right? There's allegedly been 20,000 or so Russians who have died. Uh, that's the claim by the United States anyways, but. It seems like we have the kitty gloves on, right? It seems like we, we, we, in this specific war that we're seeing play out with Ukraine, like they're not actually trying to destroy each other, and there's a reason for that, right? Vladimir Putin is trying to absorb Ukraine as his own. So he doesn't wanna just level the, the his, his own property according to him. And he also doesn't want to have, the citizens of Ukraine have so much disdain for him because of the blood loss, that they wouldn't have any allegiance to him if and when he takes over Ukraine. So we're seeing this weird little flicking war. Instead of punches being thrown, they're flicking each other's ear. Uh, and, and the way this war is going down is situations like this, right? So, so I think it's gonna be interesting to see how it plays out. I don't know what the ramifications are. There's gonna be, but, but I do believe that this was a false flag. I don't think the United States would go about assassinating President Putin. So let's go ahead and read this article, what the title of this article by Reuter says is, Moscow Says Us is Behind Kremlin Drone Attack, air Raid Siren sound in. It says, Russia said on Thursday that the United States was behind an alleged drone attack on the Kremlin aiming to kill Vladimir Putin. And as air raid sirens sounded again in Kiev as darkness fell following attacks the previous night. Residents who made their way to air raid shelters, told Reuters, they saw drones in the air. Ukrainian President, Zelensky speaking in a hog in the at in the hog. What the heck of the hell that is. After visiting the International Court of Justice, said, Putin must be brought to justice over the war in that Kiva would work to create a new tribunal for this purpose. Putin spokesperson, like he's just gonna create a tribunal. They're gonna find him guilty and then all of a sudden he's gonna be brought to justice. Like, what a vague thing to think. Uh, Putin spokesperson, Dimitri Peskov, without providing evidence said Ukraine had acted on us orders with the alleged drone attack on the Kremlin Citadel in the early hours of Wednesday. White House National Security spokesperson, John Kirby said Peskov was just lying and at the United States, neither encouraged nor enabled Ukraine to strike outside of its borders. So Vladimir Putin believes that the United States gave the order to Ukraine to have Vladimir Putin assassinated. So if that is true, like if that is true and the United States was providing the intelligence, which in this case if it's not a false flag, is very likely Ukraine itself and their vast intelligence network is probably not figuring out exactly where Vladimir Putin is. And we found out through the very last leak that the US has boots on the ground in Ukraine. We found that out. We know that. Right? So what would stop them from providing intelligence to show. Ukraine where to strike. Now again, I think it would be silly to do it with a drone and maybe it was just Ukraine's stupidity that thought they thought they would actually conduct it that way. But I don't see a place, I, I don't see a situation where this was done on US orders, but if y, if Vladimir Putin even just thinks that, then that's very dangerous for the United States. That could turn into, or at least give justification to, if it's not what he wanted to begin with, but could still just give justification for Putin to strike Ukraine heavier, go after zelensky, or even potentially attack the United States if somebody tried to kill you. Right? What, what, what, what type of, you know, response is warranted, especially if you believe there was a certain individual who did it. Why wouldn't you go after that person? In a political situation, right, so Kiev has also denied the involvement in the incident and says, which followed a string of blasts over the past weekend targeting freight trains and oil depots in Western Russian and Russian controlled kamia. Moscow blamed Ukraine for those as well. It says, attempts to disown this attack both in Kiev and in Washington are of course absolutely ridiculous. We know very well that decisions about such actions about such terrorist attacks are made, not in Kiev, but in Washington. Pescov told reporters, Pescov said, in the urgent investigation is underway, and that any response would be carefully considered imbalanced. Russia's foreign ministry said that the alleged drone attack must not go unanswered and showed Kiev had no desire to end the 15 month old war at the negotiating table. Russia has increasingly accused the United States of being direct participant in the war, intent on inflicting a strategic defeat on Moscow. Yeah, of course. We, we, I don't think there's anybody who would disagree with that at this point. It says, Washington denies this and said that it's arming Kiev to defend itself and retake illegally seized land. So this article goes on and on. But that seems to be the gist of it, right? The White House responded. John Kirby, I believe the Secretary of Defense responded and made a statement surrounding this saying, we, we don't even know if we're gonna investigate this. I don't think we'll ever know who tried to assess and led Amir Putin. He said that they're, they're likely not to do an investigation. He said it definitely wasn't us, which of course, And maybe it wasn't and maybe it was a false flag. So I still stick to that. I still believe that this was potentially a false flag if it was the US and if it was Ukraine that tried this. Then this was a very stupid way to go about trying to kill Vladimir Putin. There's probably much better situations or much, much better types of attacks that you could do instead of some over a flagpole. It just seems so specific to me that this blew up right in the position, like I said, right in the position where you would have known that it was this building. Seems kind of weird. All right. So let's move on. The next article says that the US Navy enlists a drag queen for digital ambassador role to attract more recruits. If there was going to be, to be fair, if there was going to be one branch of the military were a drag queen would likely bring on new recruits. It might be the Navy. Oh. But if we found out anything from the Bud Light campaign, I don't think this is the way, I don't think this is gonna work to bring in more military recruits unless they think that, you know, I, I knew some dudes when I was in the military that would've definitely tried anything that, you know, moved at some of the strip clubs that they went to, uh, uh, by base, but beside the point. I don't know. Let's read this article. I have no context on this, so I just saw this, uh, it says the, the Department of Defense wonders why, uh, it says that the Navy has recruited a squadron administrator and drag queen using the name Heartbeat Daniels to be their new digital ambassador. The Post is designed to inspire more civilians to join the Navy, is that who we really want defending our nation is people who are inspired by men wearing women's clothes, wigs, and doing sexual dances. Is that who we really want? Picking up arms and defending our children? I don't think it is. I don't think so. Not maybe. Maybe I'm, I'm the only one, but I doubt it. Uh, so. This is from Libs of TikTok, hired this non-binary drag queen as a digital ambassador to try to recruit people. Let's see this video. So it's a, a reel. I don't think there's any, uh, let's see if I get any volume here. Nope, no volume on this. So it seems like there should be though. It says the US Navy hired this non-binary drag queen as a digital ambassador. Uh, It's a video of this man who pulls up a jean jacket and turns into a woman. Ugly. Both times by the way, was not much of an improvement. Just a lot of eye makeup says this navy sailor is also a drag queen. And then there's a video of him wearing a large wig, blowing kisses, smiling like anybody cares about him. Says 24 year old Joshua Kelly performs under the alter ego of Harpe Daniels. I wonder why I'm not getting volume on this while serving as his squadron's administrative supervisor. Kelly shows in a big, ridiculous child cheerleader type bow. In the middle of his silly head, it says, Kelly shows are a part of lip sync competitions and that are designed to boost more morale. Kelly hopes to inspire people all over the world to appropriate women's culture too, and show that you can serve your country and still have a mental disorder. Wow. Um, it doesn't say have a mental disorder. It said be yourself but yourself is not that. Okay. So how ridiculous. How ridiculous. And we, we knew it was gonna get to this point. Right. And you have to understand like, what, what better way. What better way to attack a country than, and, and, and belittle it's military capabilities. And you even have to think, like, think of your grandparents, think of your parents, and then, and then think of gen, gen Z, right? Think of those little kids who are doing TikTok dances and, and you know, all of the things that you think of when Gen Z comes up into your mind. Think of those are the people and the only people who get to defend our country. Now think of the, that you, you, you make 30% of the people defending our country are as non-binary as, uh, you know, some sort of LGBTQ plus part of the, it's like, okay, men with inherently feminine characteristics are not the person, not the people that you want defending you. Like if, if I'm outside of a bar and about to get in a fistfight with a bunch of other guys, Which may or may not have happened in my life several times. Um, I'm, I'm not immediately pointing to the drag queen or the, the trans man who thinks he's a woman or the, you know, flamboyantly gay person outside of the gay bar and immediately asking them to jump in and defend me. Like there's, there's probably a. Few other people I'm gonna point in the direction of in that situation. Uh, this says that, uh, the attempted woke ation of the US Armed Service is a growing trend with military brass defending the teachings of critical race theory among officers in nu numerous recruitment ads depicting far left concepts. Uh, here is a training video from the Navy featuring two engineers from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center explaining the use of pronouns, gender neutral language in how to be a good ally to L G B T community. Say, Hey everyone, or Hey, team. Yeah. And now that you say that, another way that we could show that we're allies and that we accept everybody is to maybe include our pronouns in our emails, or like we just did, introduce ourselves using our pronouns. But what would I do if I, uh, misgender someone? I think the first thing to recognize is that it's not the end of the world. You correct yourself and move on, or you accept the correction and move on. The most important thing I can tell you is do not put the burden of making you feel good about your mistake on the person that you just misgendered. Oh, thank you for telling me that. Yeah. In another take. Oh, thank you for telling me, for you to remember their, uh, pronoun. Next time it's in your mind. Kind of go through a progression of. Three good things about the person using their pronouns. So let's say the person chooses to use day day, then you will in your mind go, they have a nice shirt, they have a nice smile. They are really smart. So that kind of sticks in your brain. That is so helpful. Um, oh my gosh. Thank you. I wanna know what would I do if I want to know someone's gender identity or a pronoun? The most important, maybe look at them and see, is that a man or is that a woman? Oh, and let's not forget the Army's social justice advertising from, what was it? I think last year, the year before, there's this video, which was a recruitment ad. It begins in California with a little girl raised by two moms. Although I had a fairly typical childhood, took ballet, played violin, I also marched for equality. I like to think I've been defending freedom from an early age. When I was six years old, one of my moms had an accident. They left her paralyzed. Doctor said she might never walk again, but she tapped into my family's pride to get back on her feet. Eventually standing at the altar to marry my other mom with such powerful role models. I finished high school at the top of my class and then attended uc Davis while I joined a sorority full of other strong women. But as graduation approached, I began feeling like I'd been handed so much in life. A sorority girl stereotype. Sure I'd spent my life around inspiring women, but what had I really achieved on my own? One of my sorority sisters was studying abroad in Italy. Another was climbing Mount Everest. I needed my own adventures, my own challenge, and after meeting with an Army recruiter, I found it a way to prove my inner strength and maybe shatter some stereotypes along the way. I am US Army Corporal Emma Malone Lord, and I answered my calling and my mom's a lesbian, like, who cares? Just go serve in the military. It doesn't need to be this big outreach campaign. Like literally, you know, one question I never asked anybody in bootcamp. Is, were your parents gay? That was probably the last thing on my mind, sitting in San Antonio in a tent during Beast Week. Uh, so let's watch this last one, which is Humans of the cia, and then we'll move on. Articulated so beautifully how I felt as a daughter of immigrants then and now. Nothing about me was or is tragic. I am perfectly made. I can wax eloquent on complex legal issues in English while also belting in Spanish. I can change a diaper with one hand and console a crying toddler with the other. I'm a woman of color. I am a mom. I am a cisgender. Okay. Wow, that just took a turn right as I paused it, so we'll have to go back. But I call bullshit. First of all, there's no way that you're changing a diaper with one hand unless your child is a fricking newborn. I promise you. There's no way you're child changing a diaper of a child with one hand while also holding a toddler. I, I call bullshit. But let's hear about this woman's sexuality first before we figure out how, if she's qualified for the cia. I am a mom. I am a cisgender millennial who's been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box checking exercise. I am a walking declaration. A woman whose inflection does not rise at the end of her sentences suggesting that a question has been asked. I did not sneak into cia. My employment was not and is not the result of a fluke or slipped through the crack. I earned my way in and I earned my way up the ranks of this organization. I am educated, qualified, and competent, and sometimes I struggle. I struggle feeling like I could do more, be more to my two sons, and I struggle leaving the office when I feel there's so much more to do. I used to struggle with imposter syndrome, but at 30, and if you too are a cisgendered Hispanic individual who is intersectional with generalized anxiety disorder, you too can join the C I a Crickets. Hey, I bet you didn't know we had that function over here. All right, so there are some woke advertisements. The Navy claims that the D I A or D E I, diversity, equity inclusion initiatives are not hurting recruitment yet. Interest in military service continues to plummet in the wake of the woke shift. The repellent nature of leftist branding efforts in the military should be obvious. In the past, the majority of these vol, those volunteering for military service have always been conservative or independent. With only 29% of current serving, identifying as Democrats, leftists have long been widely opposed to military participation in general, even though ironically, the Democrats are now becoming the prominent party of war when it comes to Russia and Ukraine. Situation. Says they want America going to war. They just don't wanna be forced to go and fight those war themselves. All right. Another factor in this mindset is the average left leftist. It is a philosophy that lends itself to weakness, entitlement, and often mental illness. This article says, how dare you, uh, making training goals difficult or impossible? Over 42% of Gen Z have been diagnosed with at least one mental health condition. Wow. That's a pretty crazy statistic. And that statistic comes from. Psychology Psychol psychiatrist.com. Hmm. 42% of Gen Zs diagnosed with a mental health condition. Wow. That's a wild statistic. All right. Um, many businesses are now more likely to reject applications from job seekers that use prof preferred pronouns in their resumes. These people are far more trouble than they are worth. Yeah. So that's the Navy trying to recruit people with a drag queen and the history of wokeness in our military and secret, uh, or, or, you know, shadow organizations like the cia. Uh, how's that going for you guys? Because last I heard there was a crazy recruitment situation where they basically dropped all physical requirements, like basically the entirety of the PT situation. I, I forget what it was. I believe I talked about it here, but it was like the BMI went away, that you had to qualify under the, the training, uh, the, the PT distinctions, like the type of PT training you had to do went away. The, um, it, it's wild. So no surprises. I mean, I'm guess I'm a little surprised by this, but I guess I shouldn't be. Uh, so let's move on. Now. I did see this article. I. Which was a little alarming when I first read it, but, um, but I'll, you'll, you'll hear it explained in just a second. Um, Putin sets fire to a compound outside of Kiev full of women and children burning them all alive. Oh wait, just kidding. That was the FBI and the atf and that's what they did to the citizens in Waco, Texas. Right. I think we came up on the, uh, anniversary of that just a few weeks ago and it's, it's such a tragic story. It's so cra it's one of the wildest stories in American history that that's actually what happened in this standoff in Waco. The A TF and the F B I lit fire to a building killing women and children. Yet, if we heard of that about Vladimir Putin, there would be calls for war across the board. Not war like we have it now, but troops on the ground from the United States with American flag patches on their shoulders that would be infiltrating and, and and killing Russians. That's what would be happening if this happened there. But you know, The, the, the, uh, I don't think the American washing of propaganda has turned the Waco Texas situation into a more of a documentary that people find interesting than an actual reality that they would believe is possible in today's world, which that was not that far ago. Uh, so anyways, I just thought that comparison was interesting. Um, and, and if that actually happened, what the actual response would be from American citizens, including myself. If we heard about that, there would be a serious, serious discussion surrounding whether or not somebody capable of doing something so horrific should be allowed to maintain this petty little war that they're having without serious consequences. But that wasn't Vladimir Putin, that was the fbi. That was Americans, as there's an American flag flying above the burning building that I'm looking at on this now. There was some responses to this on Reddit. It says there are no winners in that entire situation. I feel terrible for the innocent lives loss. They didn't deserve any of that. Somebody responded to that and said, I mean, the ATF could have been just apprehended to when he went for one of the routine jogs. Instead, the ATF decided to slaughter women and children. Uh, Let's see, biz Lane School Siege is, so somebody else commented, uh, an event where Russians killed more, went away. Um, more people then were held hostage. What does that mean? Hmm. Interesting. Um, this says that if you wanna learn more, you highly recommend the documentary Waco, the Rules of Engagement from 1997. The most horrifying part is that when they cut back and forth showing that the ATF claimed to be doing with the reality of what were actually happening. Hmm. So like what they were actually telling people on the outside comp compared to what they were actually doing. Uh, so that was the Bilan School Siege, an event where Russians killed more hostages than the terrorists. It says the Be somethings hospital raid, Moscow Theater Hostage Crisis, Bilan School Siege. If the Russian armed forces show up to a hostage crisis, you're in safer hands with the terrorists. I think I do remember hearing about that. Um, but anyway, somebody was recommending the documentary Waco, the Rules of Engagement for 1997. It's available on YouTube as well. Uh, the, it says they cut back and forth showing what the ATF claimed to be doing with the reality of, um, re the reality of what they were actually doing. That said the Putin headline has a really weird reach. Uh, Waco is horrifying enough without reading the attack or without needing to attach some. Odd anti Ukraine propaganda. Well, it just puts it in perspective. Uh, it says That didn't Putin gas and movie theater full of hostages or something. That's what they talked about before. Uh, but it was a traditional theater meant for plays. Uh, it says in all 131 people officially died out of 850 to 900 hostages with the majority of the hostages fatalities occurring. After exposure to the gas ster, the Russians government ped into the theater compromising a mixture of car fentanyl and Rema fentanyl. Fentanyl derivative. However, some estimates place the number of hostages killed far closer to 200 to 300. Wow. That's horrible. All right, moving on. But first, go ahead and hit that subscribe button. Leave a five star review, head over to the Anti elite.club website, check out the gear, promote and help you boy out. Uh, get some some of the stuff, the, uh, stuff that I actually designed myself. So lemme know if you like it. Um, one of the ones that I kinda like about it was the, um, make Love Now Viruses. It's a tie-dye sweater, uh, with the Anti Elite Club logo monogram on the back. Um, but here's the deal and here's what the anti league club is about. Um, to me it's, it's all subtle, subtle designs that, that are made so that, you know what, what, what I see today in like the modern conservative, uh, libertarian, anything left of center is like, people generally suck at designing stuff. Um, for some reason there's very little creativity that's on that side of the spectrum. It's always like, uh, come get my guns bitch on the back of the car, truck with a sticker. Um, what I wanted to do was make something that I would be proud to wear, that I would wear out in public without drawing a ton of attention to myself, but also having a meaningful statement to it. So we have the Protect the Children hoodie, um, with the Anti Elite Club logo right on the top, back under the neck. Um, we have the Make Love Not Viruses sweater in a pretty sweet looking tie-dye. Um, we have the Pelosi capital hat, and then we have the George Soros actor or Crisis Actor Guild mug. So go check it out. Let me know your thoughts, support your boy. Uh, buy some shit. And I would appreciate it. Head over to the ck austin adams.ck.com, subscribe. We will be moving towards using that more in the future. Um, if you're on there right now and you're under, where the hell is the emails? I know, I hear you got a lot of shit going on in life, guys working on it. So, um, thank you for bearing with me. All right. Let's move on. The next situation is a horrific event that happened in the New York subway. Uh, let's read the article so we get some background, and I'll give you my thoughts on this. I, I have a fair amount of opinions on this and, and I, I've worn an opinion. I've trained martial arts for 11 years now. Since 2012. I trained Jiujitsu, uh, starting, and I, and you know, at some point, I'll tell you that story. It was kind of a cool, one of the coolest stories of my life is how I actually got into jujitsu. Um, But. Uh, that's kind of, you know, I don't know if we'll stay on track with that. So, um, basically, uh, what happened on this New York subway is that, uh, subway riders walk at the Broadway li uh, that's the picture. Um, the death of a man who was . Placed in a choke hold. He was put in a rear naked choke by a fellow passenger on a New York City subway train. Earlier this week has been ruled a homicide by the city's medical examiner as calls for the arrest and the incident have intensified. The deceased man identified as 30 year old Jordan Neely died on Monday from a compression of the neck while riding on the F train in Manhattan. The spokesperson for the medical examiner said on Thursday noting that homicide is not r a ruling, an intent, or culpability nearly according to media reports was homeless. It says A video of the incident that has circulated on social media showed an unidentified pass passenger applying a choke hold. It was a rear naked choke to a man identified as Neely on the floor of a subway for more than three minutes. Who, uh, two other men there are seen in the video restraining neely's arms before he went limp. Where I just cannot verify the authenticity of the video. It's real. I, you, I can tell you you don't want to. It's, it's really not that horrific to see, but it's like, it's pretty disgusting to watch this guy hold onto this rear naked choke for as long as he did. Um, Neely was known to impersonate Michael Jackson dressing and dancing like legendary music artists on New York, busy trains and stations. The altercation occurred after he boarded the train and began saying he was hungry and ready to die. The 24 year old former Marine who placed Neely in the choke hold was questioned by police and released on Monday. Local Remedi reported authorities have not released his name. The Manhattan District Attorney's Office said, be investigating the incident by reviewing the medical examiner's report, viewing video and photo of footage of the altercation, and conducting interviews with witnesses. It also said it was examining Neely's medical records. The incident has led the calls for the man who put Neely into the choke hold to be arrested and for the city to do more for the homeless and those who are struggling with mental illness. Some have also claimed that race. Neely is black, and the man who choked him was white, had plays a, uh, plays a card in the city's handling of the case. Democratic US representatives, a o C, whose district includes neighborhoods in the New York City, boroughs of the Bronx, and the queens said Neely was murdered. Jordan was ho houseless and crying for food. In the time when the city is raising rents and stripping services, the murderer gets protected with passive headlines and no charges. New York City Mayor Eric Adams cited mental health issues is having a role in the incident, but he said he would profane com contaminating further while the investigation is underway. We did not know there were serious mental health issues at play here. Or we do know it says, um, noting that the administration has worked to care for homeless individuals and getting them off the streets, the subways. So I don't know what happened prior to this. It, there hasn't been a ton of information that I've seen personally about what happened prior to this. What I see when I watched this video is a guy seemingly who had. Very little training. You could tell by the way that he was doing this rear naked joke. He didn't have his hooks in there. There was, he wasn't restraining the, their guide properly. There. There's no reason that you should have to have two people hold somebody's arms while you choke this them unconscious if you know what you're doing. So, I personally believe this is murder, right? And maybe that's unpopular on this side of things and, and, and to be on the, you know, not, uh, uh, part of team a ooc. But I agree with a o c I agree with her. This may be the only time you ever hear that in my life. I believe this man was murdered. I do not think that there is any situation at all where you hold a rear naked choke for three full minutes. If that's how long it was, the video showed maybe 45 seconds or 30 seconds. I think what happened was atrocious. I think that the, the, if you are actually somebody who should be applying a, a, a rear naked choke, you should be able to constrain and restrain somebody properly, especially some crack head on a, a train without having to hold a, a rear naked choke for three straight minutes. I would never do that to somebody even if my, unless my life was in danger and you have a knife and you are actively trying to murder me, then yeah, maybe I'll hold it a little bit longer than if we were training in the gym. But if you, uh, if you are somebody who has engaged in combat, in, in combat sports, in jujitsu, in in M M A or you're a Marine who had a little bit of training enough to be able to restrain, you should have enough. Training if you're going to use that to restrain somebody without utilizing it that way, you know, when you choke somebody unconscious and when you choke somebody unconscious, you have about 30 seconds or so, maybe a little bit longer, maybe a little bit less, depending on the person. But generally, if you hold it and you keep holding it, that person's gonna die. You are restricting what, what they said there was like wrong. It said something about, um, his, what did it say? Um, there was no charges. I agree. Crazy. Um, what did they say? Something about restricting his air flow. Two men in the video restraining neely's arms before he went limp. Uh, the deceased man identified as 30 a spokesperson, said the medical examiner noting that homicide was not ruined the intent. Um, he was homeless. Where did it go? What did they say? I dunno what happens in a rear naked choke. What happens in any proper choke? There's not too many air chokes that you do to somebody where they stop them from breathing. What it does is there's two main arteries that run through your neck and you're stopping the blood flow from running through those main arteries. You stop these, this blood flow, your brain shuts off. You go to sleep if you continue to stop the blood flow for minutes at a time. That sleep turns into a permanent sleep, right? You kill somebody by holding a, a, a rear naked choke that long. Um, so this guy had no business holding that choke for as long as he didn't, unless the guy had a knife in his hand. If he had a knife in his hand, then I'm wrong. Right. If he had a gun in his, in his waistline, then maybe I'm wrong. If he was actively trying to stab somebody Yeah, sure. Make sure that he doesn't wake up. But unless your life or somebody else's life was an imminent danger, you don't, you do not hold a rear naked choke for three straight minutes in any situation. And when you feel somebody's body go limp, you let go. It's over. It's done. They might wake up in 10 to 15 seconds and then by that point you should have a better way of restraining them. But there's no situation where these two guys should have been holding his arms. I mean, it's, it's a pretty horrific situation, understanding what's going on here. Um, two guys holding somebody else's arms while another guy chokes him to death is like, not, not something that you want to. You wanna watch or be a part of? It's, it's pretty crazy. I think this guy should go to jail. I think this guy should actively be tried for murder. We should find out more about what was happening here. It doesn't seem like there was any evidence here that somebody's life was in imminent danger. All we heard about was this guy's homeless. So, yeah, I think they're going soft on this guy. Um, I don't know if that's due to his race. I don't know if that's due to the vi but with the video, it, it just doesn't make any sense to me why this guy continues to choke him. Um, so I, I think, unless there's something I'm missing here, This is horrific and it's murder. That's it. Um, don't apply that if, if you don't have the ability to, to know when to let go. And also, if you, if you are capable of applying that to a random citizen who's not fighting, who's not actively capable of fighting back properly, you should be able to restrain them without choking them to death. That, that's just my 2 cents. All right. Now last but not least, let's talk about Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. So there's been a few different headlines. Now, I haven't looked into a ton about, um, Robert Kennedy jr's. Uh, like his policy stuff when it comes to be running as a Democrat, he is running as a Democrat on the Democratic ticket. But from what I've seen on several websites that have been pulling this, there's a good portion of people who are, who are, you know, right of center, who are very seriously considering voting for Robert Kennedy Jr. He is the demo, like the, the, the, the. Anybody and everybody who's been questioning this system, who's had the, the institutions crumble around them and their view perspective of them, of their authority, figures that are around us, like anybody and everybody who's had that same feeling that everybody that's probably listening to this has had, like the, the, the idea of institutions having our best interest in mind should definitely, in my opinion, consider looking into the policies of Robert Kennedy Jr. Um, he wrote the book, the Real Anthony Fauci, which I haven't personally read it, but a, according to the people that I know that have read it. It absolutely breaks down brilliantly. The reason that Anthony Fauci should be charged for crimes against humanity, like citations after citations after citations. Um, unfortunately, Robert F. Kennedy has this voice issue, which he got, you know, everything that you read about him says Anti-vaxxer Robert F. Kennedy, anti-vaxxer, Robert F. Kennedy. But the reason he's anti-vax is because he got a vaccine and it destroyed his speaking ability. It should say vaccine victim, not anti-vaxxer. Right, so vaccine victim Robert F. Kennedy. Running for the Democratic Party has made several headlines recently, um, about his, what, what he said that he would do if he is elected. One of them being that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Said that he will pardon Julian Assange and Edward Snowden if he was elected president. Now that's some shit that I can get behind because when Trump left office and he did not pardon either of those men, it raised several questions in my mind. There's several things about Trump now. I voted for Trump both times, so I'm not a Trump hater. I all the way get the, get the fundamentals of why people voted for Trump, right? I get it a hundred percent. But I have questions guys. One of those questions being, why did Donald Trump push operation warp speed? Why did he still gloat to this day about the vaccine? Why were businesses being shut down right around the time that he was leaving office? Right, the lockdowns, he didn't speak out, uh, uh, adhere, uh, uh, uh, completely about those. He still gloats to this day about the vaccine coming out during his presidency and that he was the reason that the vaccine came out. Um, now that's another separate conversation about all the things that we're seeing with the vaccine coming out right now about, uh, you know, and all of the people that are literally dying. All around me like it's crazy how many people that I know who are extremely healthy, that are dealing with serious, serious adverse side effects, heart conditions, cardiology, like serious conditions where they're having to get heart surgeries and. There's no whisper of it. Why in the wo Okay, I I won't run through that tangent cuz Let's talk about Ron. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Um, but we'll jump into that a different day. All right. But he says that he would pardon Assange and Snowden if he's elected president, which I get behind 100%. That is a man who is willing to expose the truth. Now is he a man who's capable of getting elected is a different story, especially after you understand what happened to Bernie Sanders by the dnc, where he was, should have been the front runner, but there was emails leaked, literally showing that they do not allow the person with the most votes to be elected than the primaries. They just pick them out of exactly who they want to run. As we saw in those LE emails, the Clinton emails. Uh, anyways, let's see what, uh, some of that conversation says. Says, sadly, I firmly believe that if Snowden gets a pardon and returns to the US, the three letter agencies will have him assassinated. Probably very true. Uh, news, sadly, we found out that today, yeah, that we found out that Snowden cut his own head off with a box cutter, tragic stuff. Anyways. Next up, math is racist. Uh, says he should avoid convertible rides in Dallas between now and then, and yeah, there's some quotes about that, but yeah, there's probably a very little chance of him getting elected just based on the powers that be e even if you beli if you, if you believe in that kind of thing, you know, free and fair elections. Uh, but yeah, I, I, I see a very little chance where, They allow that to happen. But I, I would seriously consider looking into his policies and personally, I, I would consider looking into voting for him, depending on what, how, how democratic his policies are. Um, the next one that we'll look at by him says, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Oh, we're missing one here guys. Let's see. We got one more for ya. And it is, Uh, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Says that mega billionaires are using climate change to usher in totalitarian controls on our society, right? So what he's talking about there is the carbon footprint. What he's talking about, there is a social credit score based on how much meat you ate that week. What he's talking about there is 15 minute cities. So Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Says mega billionaires are using climate change. To usher in totalitarian controls in our society. So this comes from the Daily caller says, democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Said Friday that mega billionaires like Bill Gates are using climate change to implement totalitarian controls on society. Climate issues and pollution issues are being exploited by, you know, the World Economic Forum and Bill Gates and all these big, you know, mega billionaires The same way that Covid was exploited, to use it as an excuse to clamp down totalitarian controls on society like Kennedy during a talk show. Hosted by Kim Iverson. Kim Iverson being the woman who I talked about last week, um, who about From the Hill, who was removed because she had something to say about vaccines, I believe. Um, but I actually liked Kim Iverson a lot. So, um, here's the clip. Um, where do you stand on climate policies that are being enacted right now? There is a difference between environmentalism and climate change. Where do you stand on all of that and what types of policies. Do you support or climate the climate, climate issues and pollution issues are being exploited by, you know, the, the World Economic Forum and Bill Gates and all of these, uh, big, you know, mega billionaires the same way that Covid was exploited, uh, to use it as an excuse to clamp down, top-down totalitarian controls on society and to, um, and then to give us engineering solutions. And if you look closely, as it turns out, the guys who are promoting those engineering solutions are the people who, who, who own the ipss, the patents for those solutions. Oh, it's a way, you know, it's, they're, it's being used. They've given climate, uh, chaos, a bad name, you know, because people now see that it's just another crisis that's being used. Strip mine the wealth of the poor and to, you know, to enrich billionaires. And, uh, you know, I, I, for 40 years have had the same policy on climate and engineering. You can go check my speeches from the 1980s and I've said the most important solution for environmental issues, not top down controls. It's free market capitalism. So there you go. Maybe just baby. Give it a shot. Look into his policies. That's all I'm saying. Uh, but that is what I have for you guys today. Thank you so much for listening. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. I hope you have a wonderful day. I love you. Goodnight.

Contractor Success Map with Randal DeHart | Contractor Bookkeeping And Accounting Services
This Podcast Is Episode Number 518, And It's About How To Protect Your Construction Company From Bankruptcy Starting a construction business is not for the faint of heart. A certain level of stress comes with ensuring your company's success. If things go wrong, it all falls back on you. That said, the freedom and sense of accomplishment of running your own business make the challenges well worth it. With good planning and strong business practices, you can avoid the pitfalls and drive your trade business to financial success. Learn the top reasons why small businesses end up in bankruptcy and what you can do to prevent that from happening to you. 1. Poor cash flow Not bringing enough money in is the main reason why businesses fail. You must have more money coming in than is going out, or you're on the express train to bankruptcy. This might mean increasing your prices, decreasing costs, or combining the two. There might also be different service models you can offer (such as subscription services) or ways to branch out your income. Work with an accountant or bookkeeper to help you identify issues with your cash flow as soon as you know there's a problem–or to prevent one before it happens. The earlier you catch a cash flow problem, the better. 2. Insufficient initial funding Don't rely solely on credit to fund your business. If you start in a deficit, climbing out of debt and becoming cash positive will be much harder. It can also be challenging to break the habit of throwing capital investments on credit in an attempt to start making money. Explore all of your options for initial funding. Ensure you have enough budget to start your business on the right foot. 3. Difficult market conditions Economic recessions or depressions can negatively affect businesses, especially those relying heavily on consumer spending. Unfortunately, there's not much anyone can do about a poor economic climate but try to budget for the ebbs and flows of the market so you have breathing room if times get tough. An emergency account with money set aside for unexpected situations will at least give you some cash to survive on if things take a downturn. 4. Poor financial management Finances can get complicated, so you must ensure you're on top. Failing to keep accurate financial records, not managing expenses effectively, and not correctly forecasting future revenues and costs are all issues that could hurt you financially. Work with an accountant, bookkeeper, or advisor if you have difficulty managing your finances. They can help you set a plan and show you how to ensure your money is best used. 5. Lack of market research If you can't compete with your rivals, your construction business may struggle to generate enough revenue to stay afloat. This problem typically comes back to a lack of market research. Entrepreneur jumps into a market they're passionate about, only to discover that somebody else is already offering the same thing – and they've already got the market cornered. Or maybe there's no need for that particular product or service. Market research before entering the business and offering a new product or service. The results will tell you whether there's a need for what you're offering. 6. Legal issues Lawsuits, fines, and penalties can be costly for businesses, draining their financial resources. The best way to avoid this is to ensure you're familiar with the rules and regulations you must follow or get help from a professional advisor when necessary. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Construction Company Failure is Always Preceded by Bad Bookkeeping The construction company owner who buys QuickBooks and hires a regular bookkeeper to "put stuff into QuickBooks" and then ignores all of the financial and job costing reports generated from their QuickBooks file drives their construction company into economic doom. Too often, contractors have led down the primrose path into bankruptcy and business failure by relying on inaccurate, false, misleading financial and job costing reports from their QuickBooks file. Part of the blame rests on Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks because their marketing strategy implies that anyone, regardless of their understanding of accounting principles, can use QuickBooks, and if you are a contractor, all you need is QuickBooks for Contractors. It sets up contractors for failure by playing to their self-image of strong people who are rough and tumble and can do anything. In too many cases, these contractors end up feeling inadequate and experience huge disappointments feeling like they are the only people on earth who cannot figure out how to use QuickBooks. Most of these contractors give up trying to make QuickBooks do what they want and lower their expectations to just knowing how much money is in the checkbook, Key Performance Indicator #1, and ignoring the other four Key Performance Indicators. Ultimately, it is like driving a car in the pitch-black darkness, on the freeway, with a tiny flashlight at 60 MPH, and being shocked and dismayed when it crashes, rolls in the ditch, and burns. How to avoid bankruptcy While the reasons construction businesses end up going bankrupt may seem numerous, there are some specific things you can do to make sure it doesn't happen to you, such as: Maintain accurate financial records and regularly review your business's performance. Develop a solid business plan that includes realistic revenue and expense projections. Diversify your business's revenue streams to reduce reliance on a single source of income. Stay current on industry trends and market changes. Reduce unnecessary expenses and manage costs effectively. Seek professional advice from construction accountants, lawyers, and business consultants when necessary. Build up an emergency fund to help your business weather tough times. Avoid taking on too much debt and manage what you already have effectively. By taking these steps, you can reduce the risk of bankruptcy and increase the chances of long-term success. Final thoughts A business might end up in bankruptcy for many reasons, but a bit of planning goes a long way. Do your research, be honest when you need help, and work with a financial professional to help you stay profitable. Contact us to discuss further how you can protect your construction business and learn how we can help. No construction company goes bankrupt that had useful, accurate Financial Statements and Job Costing Reports that they understood and paid attention to because they would have seen bankruptcy coming well enough ahead of time to avoid it.

The Successful Bookkeeper Podcast
“The numbers don't lie, but they don't tell the whole story.” -Adrienne Barrett Planning is something we have all struggled with, most of us find it hard to plan for the worst, afraid of willing those scenarios into existence. Even fewer of us plan for success. Plan for what it might look like should all of our hard work pay off and our business grows beyond our ability to manage it alone. This plan paralysis puts us into a state of reaction, putting out fires after they have started, rather than looking at the data and relationships around us and removing the potentially flammable elements. Effective planning isn't just about how we run our business, it plays a critical role in who we hire to help us run it. It can be hard to look at ourselves through an honest lens without inducing more plan panic, but needing help, the kind that fills in our gaps and frees our time and energy for the things we love, isn't the mark of failure. It's the mark of success. Adrienne Barrett is this spotlight session's featured guest. A senior manager at Intuit, she has spent her career helping businesses get on top of their plans, systems, processes and relationships.

Many of us feel a pit of dread in our stomachs when we think about the “A word.” That's right: tax audits. Did you know that not all audits are the same?
