Stay tuned to the end of the interview where I'll give you some actionable insights that I learned from my guest. These insights are also in the show notes. As always, thanks for listening. Now on to my guest for today, Jeff Greenfield, a serial entrepreneur who has worked as a magician, chiropractor, and product placement guru, among other roles. His current venture is Provalytics. Jeff started out wanting to be a magician when he saw one perform at Disney World when he was just five years old. And that's what he did, putting on shows while he was still in grade school. He went to college for biochemistry and while he considered trying to be a magician professionally, instead he became a chiropractor. He had a thriving practice until an injury forced him to find another career. This gave him the opportunity to dive into professionally performing as a magician, getting gigs on college campuses. At the time, the internet was in its infancy, but he realized the importance of having a website in order to market himself. After trying to hire someone to build one who failed to do so, he figured out how to do it himself in a weekend. Before he knew it, he was being hired to build websites for other businesses. The next step was to figure out how to get businesses on the web to rank higher, which led him to develop an understanding of how SEO works. He worked with a developer to create an automated SEO platform. Though he'd found success and was having fun, Jeff wasn't content to stay where was. He worked in product placement and branding, but soon his projects led him to ask how to better measure the efficacy of the marketing he was doing. The result was C3 Metrics, a platform that's worked with companies like JP Morgan, Hertz and Nestle. Jeff next tried joining a company's management team, but while he learned a lot, it didn't suit him. He realized that new challenges in the area of marketing measurement brought about by new regulations was an untapped opportunity. So Jeff founded Provalytics to help companies find new ways to approach marketing analytics without the benefit of cookies and other tracking tools. Now, let's get better together. Actionable Insights While he earned an advanced degree to become a health professional, Jeff clearly has not let anything stop him from learning the information and tools he found he needed. By jumping in and learning new technology, he made himself invaluable to others while being at the forefront of innovation. Jeff sees opportunity where others might see difficulties. Rather than lamenting his injury, he built a business instead. When that wasn't satisfying, he pursued his passion in magic. More recently, seeing what was happening with marketing metrics, he jumped in to help figure out how to respond. Jeff has many accomplishments, but it's clear he values family time. He spoke of wanting to be with his wife and daughter, and making choices so that he could do so. He found ways to build the kind of life he wanted, even when unexpected events forced him to jump tracks.

Smy Goodness Podcast : Food, Art, History & Design
Gimme a break, gimme a break - break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar - it's the food history and food art of the Kit Kat. My next episode will be followed up with a much deeper look at cacao. This episode is a bit of a departure as it's the first time I have featured a brand. It was inspired by my dear friend Michiru and her recent gift of a pack of assorted Japanese Kit Kats and will start with original Kit Kats. From the 18th century savoury pies they share their name with, to their 100 year journey to being the most influential confectionery bar of all time. Their world domination includes Japan and the hundreds of Kit Kat varietals of gentei limited edition culture but it must also include an honest look at Nestle and Corporate Social Responsibility. There's the Kit Kat portraits of old from Sir Godfrey Kneller and the The New Kit-Cat Portraits by Gloria and Mike of In the Long Run Designs Kit Kat origami; a Kit Kat Coffee Table by design house den-Holm; a Chocnology exhibition and more.
In this episode, Dan connects with scholar and organizational and leadership development practitioner, Dr. Tom Tonkin, to discuss authenticity and sincerity in the workplace and beyond. Authenticity is often lauded as a key quality in leadership, fostering trust and building strong relationships within an organization. However, the term itself can be misunderstood and difficult to pin down due to its connection to subjective feelings, emotions, and beliefs. Authenticity is self-referential; overemphasis can lead to issues in the workplace, as individuals may prioritize their own self-expression over the needs of their team or company. Instead, it is important to balance personal authenticity with a broader understanding of the context in which we operate – including the values, goals, and perspectives of others. Tom and Dan dig into this topic as Tom shares his insights into the problem of focusing too much on authenticity in leadership. He highlights the inherent subjectivity of authenticity, as one person's perception of honesty may differ from another's. Tom argues that while being true to oneself is important, it is equally necessary to consider how our actions and decisions impact others. How? By embracing sincerity, an other-centric approach, incorporating empathy and understanding to forge deeper, more meaningful connections with those around us. Here's what you can expect from the show: Consider the implications of embracing authenticity in the workplace, especially when it comes to relationship-building and leadership. Reflect on the four dimensions of authenticity: internal morality, self-awareness, transparency, and balanced processing. Assess the alignment between your internal morality and the ethics of your workplace or industry. Develop a greater sense of self-awareness to better understand how your actions and decisions impact others. Practice transparency by openly sharing your thoughts, feelings, and motives with your colleagues or team members. Implement balanced processing by considering various perspectives and ideas when making decisions. Evaluate your leadership style and consider how incorporating authenticity might affect your ability to lead and engage with others. Be open to questioning and challenging accepted norms or ideas, such as the concept of authenticity in the workplace. Research and learn from academic studies and theories that can provide valuable insights into workplace practices and behaviors. Recognize that authenticity is not a one-size-fits-all concept and that individuals may interpret and apply it differently. About Tom Dr. Tom Tonkin is a renowned expert on authenticity and sincerity in leadership and communication, offering a unique behavioral perspective on these important topics. With a deep understanding of organizational and leadership development, Tom holds a doctorate in organizational leadership and has spent countless hours researching and analyzing the intricate dynamics of business relationships. He is the founder and CEO of Sales Conservatory, a company dedicated to helping individuals and organizations improve their leadership and communication strategies. Tom's wealth of knowledge and experience in this field, as well as his passion for sincerity, make him a sought-after authority on effective leadership and communication. Notable Quotes “The more I did research on authenticity with the express purpose of relationship building, the more disillusioned I became.” – (2:06) “We can say words but it's actually the recipient that brings those words to life.” – (19:58) “Honesty is the #1 trait of leadership.” – (29:15) “We don't have enough honesty in our leadership ranks.” (34:12) “People say things like that's my truth when the fact of the matter is there is only one truth. – (45:50) “Empathy is an association to feelings; sympathy is a disassociation.” – (1:01:13) Resources and Links The Dan Nestle Show The Dan Nestle Show (libsyn.com) Daniel Nestle | LinkedIn The Dan Nestle Show | Facebook Dan Nestle (@dsnestle) / Twitter Dr. Tom Tonkin Dr. Tom Tonkin | Linkedin Dr. Tom Tonkin @DrTomTonkin | Twitter Thomas Tonkin | Facebook Tom Tonkin | 3Sixty Insights Timestamped summary of this episode: 00:00:00 - Introduction, Dan Nestle introduces the topic of authenticity and questions its meaning in the workplace. He introduces the guest, Dr. Tom Tonkin, who has researched authenticity and offers a unique perspective on it. 00:03:09 - The Disillusionment with Authenticity, Dr. Tom Tonkin explains his journey with authenticity and how his research on the topic led him to be disillusioned with it, especially in terms of relationship building in the workplace. 00:05:53 - The Context of Authenticity, Dr. Tom Tonkin explores the context of authenticity, tracing its roots back to transformational leadership, and how authenticity can be self-referential, creating potential problems in relationship building. 00:09:16 - The Operational View of Leadership, Dr. Tom Tonkin explains the operational view of leadership, which focuses on the force exerted on followers to achieve a common goal. He also discusses the concept of internalized morality and how it relates to authenticity. 00:16:07 - The Meaning of Authenticity, Dan Nestle and Dr. Tom Tonkin discuss the meaning of authenticity and its importance in the workplace. They highlight the need to balance being true to oneself while also considering the needs of others and the company. 00:17:53 - Authenticity and Leadership Qualities, Tom Tonkin and Dan Nestle discuss the difference between behaviors and qualities in terms of authenticity and leadership. They explore the concept of self-awareness and the importance of transparency and balance processing. 00:19:25 - The Meaning of Words and Authenticity, Tom explains the importance of the meaning of words and how the recipient brings those words to life. He uses the example of authenticity in Mexican restaurants, where different restaurants have different authentic tacos. He emphasizes that authenticity is self-referential and varies from person to person. 00:25:01 - Honesty as a Key Leadership Trait, Tom discusses how honesty is consistently ranked as the most important leadership trait in the book, The Leadership Challenge. He explores why honesty is so highly valued and suggests that it is because people want to trust their leaders and believe that they are on the right path. 00:29:09 - Honesty in Leadership, Dan and Tom discuss the importance of honesty in leadership and how it relates to trust. They explore the idea that there is an honesty problem in many aspects of society, including politics and industry. 00:34:00 - Lack of Honesty in Society, Tom suggests that the more plausible explanation for why honesty is consistently ranked as the most important leadership trait is that there is a lack of honesty in our society, especially in leadership positions. Dan and Tom agree that there is an honesty problem in many areas of society. 00:35:25 - The Problem with Honesty and Authenticity, The conversation starts with a discussion on honesty and authenticity. The guest, Tom Tonkin, explains that honesty can mean different things to different people, and authenticity has the same problem. He also talks about how internal morality defines one's sense of honesty, and how it can differ from one person to another. 00:37:09 - Differentiating Authenticity and Sincerity, Tonkin shares how he was initially disillusioned with the concept of authenticity and turned to sincerity. He defines sincerity as being other-centric and describes his three tenets of sincerity: empathy, purposeful altruism, and demonstrable affirmation. Tonkin also talks about the problem with the misuse of the words authenticity and sincerity. 00:43:46 - Empathy as the Key to Sincerity, Tonkin explains how empathy is one of the core tenets of sincerity and how it plays a crucial role in decision-making. He also shares an example of how he had to lie to his mother, who had severe dementia, about her father's death, and how empathy played a significant role in his decision. 00:48:20 - The Importance of Standardizing Language, Tonkin talks about the importance of standardizing language and the misuse of adjectives and adverbs that alter perception. He explains how words like bad and good can be problematic, as they are subject to interpretation, and how we need to have a standardization of concepts to understand reality objectively. 00:52: - The Continuum of Lies, Tonkin talks about the continuum of lies, where a lie is acceptable if it causes no harm. He also refers to Sabrina Horn's book, "Make It, Don't Fake It," and how she explains the different kinds of lies and when they are acceptable. Tonkin concludes by emphasizing the importance of empathy and sincerity in decision-making. 00:53:15 - Defining Purposeful Altruism, Tom Tonkin introduces purposeful altruism as a concept that goes beyond traditional altruism, which is often questioned for its true motives. Purposeful altruism aims to have a purpose behind the act of giving, with no expectation of receiving anything in return. 00:57:27 - Empathy and the Power of Noticing, Tonkin emphasizes the importance of noticing in understanding empathy. He shares a story about how Alan Alda improved his empathy by noticing people and creating backstories about them. Tonkin highlights the power of empathy to change perspectives and connect with others. 01:02:07 - Demonstrable Affirmation, Tonkin stresses the need for demonstrable affirmation to show sincerity. He suggests that actions speak louder than words and speaks about the importance of doing something to affirm beliefs and show empathy towards others. 01:03:27 - The Ethics of Sincerity, Tonkin differentiates between ethics and morality and emphasizes that sincerity is an ethical play, aimed at bettering someone else's life within a social context. He notes that sincerity is not rainbows and unicorns but involves doing good and affecting good in a social context. 01:07:23 - Sincerity vs. Authenticity, Tonkin contrasts sincerity with authenticity, noting that authenticity is focused on the self, while sincerity is focused on the other. While both may lead to good outcomes, sincerity takes a more direct path and is not focused on self-referential points. 01:09:12 - Authenticity vs. Sincerity, Tom Tonkin and Dan Nestle discuss the difference between authenticity and sincerity. Tonkin argues that authenticity has been overused and has led to problems because people have different value sets. Sincerity, on the other hand, requires getting to know someone and understanding their values. 01:10:13 - The Paradox of Authenticity, Tonkin and Nestle explore the paradox of authenticity. Tonkin argues that if being authentic takes work, then it's not authentic, and this is a paradox. He believes that we need to move away from the idea of bringing our authentic selves to work and focus on being trustworthy, transparent and demonstrating integrity. 01:17:01 - The Abstract Nature of Organizations, Tonkin and Nestle discuss the abstract nature of organizations and how people often talk about things like "the organization thinks" or "leadership thinks" when really it's just the CEO or leadership team's opinions. Tonkin argues that it's important to personalize things and focus on individuals rather than abstract concepts. 01:19:45 - Empathy vs. Compassion, Tonkin and Nestle discuss the difference between empathy and compassion. Tonkin argues that empathy is not always helpful, particularly in a therapeutic context, where a third-party view is often more beneficial. He believes that companies need to focus on interventions based on immutable facts rather than feelings. 01:25:06 - Building Policies based on Immutable Truths, Tonkin argues that policies should be based on immutable truths rather than subjective feelings. For example, companies with boards that have men and women are more profitable than those with only men or only women. Tonkin believes that companies should focus on immutable facts to create policies that are good for business and their employees. 01:26:02 - Treating People Equally, Tom and Dan discuss the importance of treating people equally regardless of race or gender. They also touch on the issue of diversity and inclusion, highlighting the importance of ensuring that qualified candidates are hired regardless of their background. 01:27:18 - Cognitive Truth vs. Feelings, Tom and Dan dive into the concept of cognitive truth and sincerity versus authenticity. They question the validity of feelings as a basis for authenticity and suggest that sincerity is more important in the workplace. 01:28:13 - Book Publication, Tom talks about his upcoming book and the process of negotiating with agents and publishers. He hopes to contribute to a healthy debate on the topic of authenticity and sincerity in the workplace. 01:29:24 - Immutable Truths, Tom and Dan emphasize the importance of honest debate and discourse in society. They hope that people will continue to question ideas and grow, and that sincerity will become a more readily available concept in the workplace. 01:32:25 - Call to Action, Dan encourages listeners to subscribe, rate, and review the podcast, and to share it with their friends. He thanks Tom for sharing his thoughts and contributing to a healthy debate on the topic of authenticity and sincerity in the workplace.
Denielle Finkelstein and Thyme Sullivan are on a mission to make high quality period products available in restroom stalls across America. In this episode, they sit down with host Sam Saperstein to talk about the company they co-founded, Unicorn. The Triple Co Denielle and Thyme call themselves the Triple Co to reflect their stats as cousins, co-founders, and co-CEOs. They both had successful careers in corporate America—Denielle spent 20-plus years in fashion with Ann Taylor, Coach, and Kate Spade, and Thyme worked with beverage and food giants Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and Nestle for 27 years. But as Denielle explains, “I'd gotten to that amazing C-suite job, that job I'd always dreamed of—and I was completely unfulfilled. I was working in a toxic environment. I had sort of lost that love of learning and the passion and really where that purpose was.” She made the decision to walk away from her corporate career, and before long she reached out to her cousin Thyme who was similarly feeling unsatisfied and ready for a transition. Thyme says her background as a “grocery geek” provided inspiration for the idea of producing high-quality, organic tampons and other period products. “Going up and down the aisles for years on end, I just saw as everything was changing to organic and to sustainable and non-GMO and gluten-free and transparency became so important,” she tells Sam. “Yet when you got to what is called the feminine care aisle, and saw the period products, it looked like you were shopping back in the seventies. There'd been little innovation, and nobody was talking about it.” Once they started researching and learning facts—such as the stat that in the U.S., one in four girls has missed school or work because she didn't have access to period products—they were even more motivated to start a business in the category that “nobody else wanted to talk about.” It didn't hurt, Denielle says, that they're perfect complements for each other: “Thyme came with an amazing, amazing pedigree with sales and operations and supply chain, and that complemented mine and where I came from as this brand-building and this marketing background.” The challengers become disruptors While providing quality, organic period products was the motivator, it wasn't long before Thyme and Denielle zeroed in on a mission to address period poverty. Thyme says that their mission was always to advance women in society, and they didn't initially see themselves as disruptors. “A disruptor by definition is more like an Uber, your Netflix, your Airbnb, it's something that's never been done before,” she says. “When we started this company, we were much more of a challenger brand. We were challenging the category, challenging the transparency and the efficacy and better getting access to better products for women. But we've actually evolved into a disruptor and we're incredibly proud of that.” Specifically, they wanted to disrupt the outdated period product machines in public restrooms. “A lot of places don't [offer period products] because the big metal machines are very expensive, they're difficult to install, they're difficult to service from the staff, they don't hold very much product,” she explains. “They certainly don't hold quality products. Nobody has coins, and often they're broken and empty. And we were thinking long and hard about that's a real problem, and the solution goes even deeper.” They spent a year and a half developing a low-cost, low profile dispenser that goes in the stalls, right next to the toilet paper. Then came the fun of fundraising—or as Denielle says, the non-fun. (“We have a phrase that there's no fun in fundraising, and it is real.”) The two had what they call a summer of un-love during which they spoke to about a hundred VCs without success. Then they found Barbara Clark, who they say changed their trajectory overnight. She not only believed in their mission and offered funding, she provided expert advice in terms of how they should shift their pitches to other VCs. Another huge break came last summer when JPMorgan Chase became [one] the first big organization to adopt their dispensers. It started when they found CEO Jamie Dimon's ear during his annual summer bus tour. “So everybody's asking about Bitcoin and world economics, and we're like, we know you got daughters, we want to talk about period products,” Thyme says. “And he listened. We had a good enough elevator pitch and he understood as a father of daughters and granddaughters.” Full transcript here

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (04/25/2023): 3:05pm- According to a report from Daniel Chaitin of The Daily Wire, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has “subpoenaed an FBI executive in an escalation of an investigation into whistleblower allegations of politicization within the agency…House Republicans on the Judiciary Committee demanded information from law enforcement and intelligence leaders last year, at the time without subpoena power, and they released a report in November summarizing allegations of politicization in the Justice Department and FBI raised by ‘a multitude' of whistleblowers. Within the report were allegations concerning a ‘purge' of FBI employees holding conservative views, which has been linked to Moore and mentions issues related to former President Donald Trump.” You can read Chaitin's story in its entirety here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/jordan-subpoenas-fbi-executive-in-conservative-purge-inquiry 3:20pm- According to a report from Sneja Farberov of The New York Post, “Hunter Biden [the son of President Joe Biden] must attend all court hearings related to his ongoing Arkansas paternity case, a judge has ruled.” You can read more here: https://nypost.com/2023/04/25/hunter-biden-to-appear-in-arkansas-court-for-paternity-case/ 3:35pm- On Tuesday, President Joe Biden officially announced his plans to run for reelection in 2024 via a video posted to social media. In the 3-minute announcement, he condemns Republicans—claiming the rival political party is responsible for overturning Roe v. Wade, banning books, and suppressing voter participation. President Biden concludes the message by exclaiming “let's finish the job.” 3:50pm- In a new interview with The New York Times, former Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Dr. Anthony Fauci avoided taking responsibility for nation-wide locked downs during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, explaining: “show me a school that I shut down and show me a factory that I shut down. Never. I never did. I gave a public-health recommendation that echoed the C.D.C.'s recommendation, and people made a decision based on that.” You can read David Wallace-Wells' full interview with Dr. Fauci here: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2023/04/24/magazine/dr-fauci-pandemic.html 4:05pm- According to Liz Wolf of Reason, Governor Kathy Hochul is considering a ban on all cigarette sales in New York. You can read Wolf's full editorial here: https://reason.com/2023/04/24/new-york-governor-gauging-support-for-full-ban-on-cigarette-sales/ 4:20pm- While speaking at the University of Ottawa with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that he has “never forced anyone to get vaccinated.” However, several soundbites from last year indicate he is lying about his stance on mandatory vaccinations. 4:30pm- Switzerland-based Nestle, the world's largest food and drink manufacturer, has raised prices by nearly 10% over the last three months in response to inflationary pressure. 4:45pm- In a video that has gone viral on social media, a San Francisco-based Target has placed nearly all of its items behind locked glass as part of an effort to dissuade shoplifters. Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that roughly one-third of New York City's shoplifting was attributable to just 327 repeat offenders. Why are major cities no longer prosecuting theft? 4:50pm- In a recent New York Times opinion editorial, Brown University President Christina Paxson compared the church's suppression of Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei's theory of heliocentrism to the passage of bills throughout the United States limiting radical “equity” initiatives. 5:05pm- The Drive at 5: In response to concerns that Pennsylvania House Bill 300 could force doctors in the state to provide children with “gender affirming” care, which includes surgery and puberty blockers, State Representative Emily Kinkead confirmed that it would. 5:10pm- In response to Fox News' shocking decision to part ways with their prime-time host Tucker Carlson, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Instagram declaring “deplatforming works” and blaming Carlson for a majority of the death threats she has received. 5:20pm- On Monday, CNN announced they had fired long-time host Don Lemon. According to some reports, Lemon's explosive confrontation with Republican Presidential nominee Vivek Ramaswamy last week played a role in management's decision to end his contract. 5:35pm- Although Don Lemon is out at CNN, he already has an exciting job offer! Rapper Rick Ross took to social media and offered Lemon a job manning the grill at one of his numerous Wingstop locations.

My Minute of News with Jeff Caplan
It's possible that civilization has run out of ideas for food. Instead of dreaming-up new dishes… big food is resorting to resizing to make the register ring. As eating turns to grazing throughout the day… Nestle is now selling what it calls selling smeals. Smeals. Small meals… or in their case pint-sized snacks. Often mashups... Cocoa Puff popcorn. Or Dr. Pepper Cotton Candy. In business.. they call it brand extension but it's proof we're out of ideas. However. Look what's comin' down the road. A futurist named Tom Cheesewright… yes… a guy who makes his living predicting the future… says within 20 years… we'll be eating radically different … pizza. He says the lack of water for agriculture could lead to pizza dough that uses crushed-up insects for filler. Do I need to say “lots of protein?” Your bug pizza crust will be topped by lab-grown meat… the cheese will be charred by laser zapped. And the craziest part. Not the first place I've heard this. The pizza won't come out of the oven…. but from a 3-D printer… that'll squirt tiny bits of ingredients to build a pizza one tiny glop shot from a printer head at a time…. then it's laser grilled. While it's weird a guy named Tom Cheesewright … is making predictions about pizza. For now, I think I'll stick with swiss miss lucky charms cereal… and Slurpee donutsSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 2: According to Liz Wolf of Reason, Governor Kathy Hochul is considering a ban on all cigarette sales in New York. You can read Wolf's full editorial here: https://reason.com/2023/04/24/new-york-governor-gauging-support-for-full-ban-on-cigarette-sales/ While speaking at the University of Ottawa with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that he has “never forced anyone to get vaccinated.” However, several soundbites from last year indicate he is lying about his stance on mandatory vaccinations. Switzerland-based Nestle, the world's largest food and drink manufacturer, has raised prices by nearly 10% over the last three months in response to inflationary pressure. In a video that has gone viral on social media, a San Francisco-based Target has placed nearly all of its items behind locked glass as part of an effort to dissuade shoplifters. Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that roughly one-third of New York City's shoplifting was attributable to just 327 repeat offenders. Why are major cities no longer prosecuting theft? In a recent New York Times opinion editorial, Brown University President Christina Paxson compared the church's suppression of Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei's theory of heliocentrism to the passage of bills throughout the United States limiting radical “equity” initiatives.

Anyone who has written a book will tell you that getting the text published it's just the beginning. The next exciting, though occasionally somewhat tiring, step is to be out on the road speaking at conferences and engaging audiences in the ideas that you had spent the previous two or more years developing and putting to paper.I had the good fortune to be invited to speak at the Shopper Brain Conference in Amsterdam presented by the Neuromarketing Science and Business Association.Speaking at the Shopper Brain Conference was somewhat of a an acid test, a way to be able to gauge whether me - the non-neuroscientist but but the artist, architect, educator and now author, who happened to spend the last four years or so deep diving into the world of neuroscience and its interrelationship with customer behavior and emerging digital technologies, would survive in front of an audience full of scientists and neuromarketing practitioners. My son who I had offered the opportunity to come along on the trip with me would be busy working on homework in the hotel lobby while he was dad was out in front of a few 100 conference attendees talking about the brain, the things you might just want to know about how it works if you're proposing to make engaging customer experiences and the influence that digital technologies was having on both the three pound organ inside your skull and the behavior of shoppers around the globe.I had studied psychology before ente ring the school of architecture at McGill University in Montreal but digging into the world of neuroscience had totally captivated me. I knew that at a base level there was more than just psychology at play in what people did when on a shopping trip. My original intuition was there had to be something, at a base level, that was driving behavior that was maybe crossed generationally, cross culturally, cross ethnically etc similar for all humans. And so, studying neuroscience, brain structures and how things worked inside our head became an area of deep study.That fascination his not left me but only become deeper. Seemed like the more I studied the more I felt I didn't fully understand. But then again that probably made some sense because the pace at which discoveries were being made in the neuroscience world were unfolding at a rapid pace where imaging technologies we're now allowing us to see into the brain in ways that we've never seen before.And so there I was digging into subjects like the mind body connection, the power of stories and the release of neurochemicals, mirror neurons and understanding the brain as a pattern recognizing machine. Understanding the brain began to suggest that what I might have understood as intuition based on experience and careful observation of how people reacted in places could be augmented with the heft of science that was quite definitive about what people might likely do or feel in spaces based on how the environment around them was designed and the interactions they were having with other people.While at the conference I sat and watched scientists, marketing and advertising executives, thought leaders and design practitioners all talk about the power of understanding the brain.One of the other speakers and I struck up a conversation while there and it seemed as though we both we're coming to this world with deep fascination about how the understanding of neuroscience would shape the interactions between people in the brand experience place. Bert Ohnemuller and I seemed to connect immediately. Bert seemed to have an air of approachable and transparent authenticity. He seems genuine and curious in his willingness to discover new ideas and to hear new insights and different points of views that challenged his preconceptions. He was candid and attentive in our conversations sharing some of the challenges in understanding science behind the brain and other subjects such as creating places for relevant customer engagement and leadership.In the past few years Bert and I both chased different professional paths and until recently Bert and I reconnected. His enthusiasm to learn and compassionate approaches to understanding how we as humans might optimize our lived experience had not left him. In fact to the contrary, it seemed like it had only become more profound. He's a man on a mission.Talking to Bert Ohnemuller is like opening a compendium of thought leadership seminars, that are founded in neuroscience and evolutionary biology. Despite his deep understanding of neuroscience, he is someone that very much has decided to leave his head and lead with his heart. It is perhaps because he is so deeply studied the science that he is able to look inward and understand his own behavior as being a function of where we have come as a species and how the mind body connection of our individual systems is just part of a larger more complex system where individuals resonate and influence the emotional states and behaviors of others.Bert believes that leadership style starts with understanding the self, that leadership is first and foremost about self leadership. In fact he takes this a step further and suggests that leaders should be required to deeply understand and lead themselves before they be put in positions of leading others. He often talks about the EPS - Emotional Positioning System not a Global Positioning System. However his emotional positioning system, that inner sense of who we are and what drives us in making our decisions and creating empathic and relevant relationships to others, is in fact a Global Positioning System of me within the context of the larger human whole.He believes that in understanding ourselves we might then extend that self knowledge outwards towards others deepening our relationships through empathic extension. Bert believes that we are in what he refers to as the Decade of Humanity. And unpacks these ideas in his book “Lead- Speak- Inspire” which has now been translated into five languages. Ohnemuller's principle key performance indicator for the decade of humanity is what he calls “ROK - Return on kindness.”A core component of this premise his based on the idea of personal responsibility. That we have to develop response – ability; our ability to respond appropriately in circumstances that challenge our existing narratives.After working for years in the fast-paced and high-pressured Consumer Packaged Goods industry with companies like Nestle, Bert now is a high performance business coach and the founder of the neuromerchandising group. His mission he says is spreading knowledge and leadership philosophies in the decade of humanity - a world where people do what they do with passion, a world where companies are role models for the society. A truly value based world.Bert Ohnemuller is a sought-after keynote speaker, author of several books positive psychology with more than three decades of entrepreneurial experiences. For Ohnemueller says that “humanity is not a soft or romantic quality but the precondition for long term success and profitability. We need to have a much better understanding about human beings and about oneself in order to unlock the full potential of individual and corporations.” ABOUT DAVID KEPRON:LinkedIn Profile: linkedin.com/in/david-kepron-9a1582bWebsites: https://www.davidkepron.com (personal website)vmsd.com/taxonomy/term/8645 (Blog)Email: david.kepron@NXTLVLexperiencedesign.comTwitter: DavidKepronPersonal Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davidkepron/NXTLVL Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nxtlvl_experience_design/Bio:David Kepron is a multifaceted creative professional with a deep curiosity to understand ‘why', ‘what's now' and ‘what's next'.

The Digital Deep Dive With Aaron Conant
Martin Heubel is the Strategy and Amazon Consultant at Consulterce, a strategy consultancy helping B2C household and CPG brands increase their 1P vendor profits on Amazon. As the founder, he has over five years of experience assisting CPG and household brands to master their bottom line. Before Consulterce, Martin was a Senior Category Manager at Amazon, where he helped brands such as Nestle and Mars turn their digital retail operations into high-performing, eight-figure accounts. In this episode… During Q4 in 2022, Amazon withdrew inventory to prevent overstocking, disrupting availability and trade relationships between brands, Amazon, and suppliers. With this risk aversion impacting supply and demand, how can brands remain savvy to sustain inventory and profits? According to Amazon consultant Martin Heubel, Amazon Vendor Negotiations (AVN) are crucial in developing an operational strategy for the coming year. During these mediations, Amazon determines fair trade agreements, including product pricing and margins, that brands must observe to prevent listing removals, Buy Box suspension, and inventory shortages. Maintaining stock and profitability requires analyzing your portfolio structure to mitigate risk and engaging with Amazon throughout the year. It's imperative to understand and manage your margins, orders, catalogs, and financials to communicate market value and stay relevant. Martin Heubel, Strategy and Amazon Consultant at Consulterce, is Aaron Conant's guest on today's episode of The Digital Deep Dive. They discuss the current and future states of Amazon's business model. Martin also shares how brands can maintain inventory in 2023, advice for winning AVNs, and how the platform's risk aversion affects brands.

Processed food industries are thriving in developing countries, despite government commitment to eradicating non-communicable diseases, prevention programs aim at reducing obesity, type two diabetes, and sugary beverage consumption. What's more, political leaders in some countries are reluctant to regulate the marketing and sale of these products, particularly among vulnerable groups, like children and the poor. Like me, you might be asking yourself: why? Our guest today is the author of a new book, "Junk Food Politics: How Beverage and Fast Food Industries Are Reshaping Emerging Economics." His name is Professor Eduardo Gomez, Director of the Institute of Health Policy and Politics, at Lehigh University. Interview Summary Let's begin with a basic question, what prompted you to write the book? Great question. It really started, I remember almost the day, when I came across this article written by the New York Times in 2016. This article started to talk about the rise in influence of the sugar industry in the US, and how they were shaping evidence about the connection between the consumption of sugar and heart disease. For many years in the past, that connection was never emphasized when it came to national dietary recommendations. This New York Times article really revealed how powerful and influential these industries were in shaping the evidence and policies on the linkages between sugar and heart disease, and our consumption of these products. At the same time, I was doing research on obesity policy in Brazil, comparing Brazil to the US, and why Brazil was doing better in the areas of nutritional information, prevention, and awareness about childhood obesity. I also saw that obesity cases were still increasing in Brazil despite these prevention efforts. At the time, I was also starting to work in Mexico and saw similar policies in Mexico being implemented on prevention and awareness, and national dietary guidelines. But still, we saw a rise in obesity, a rise in adolescent diabetes. So those two things - the evidence about how industries manipulate data and dietary guidelines - and then how luncheon programs are really not achieving their goal of reducing childhood obesity in adolescent diabetes. Those puzzles really motivated me in writing this book to really delve deeper into this question. That really required not a journal article, but a book that would do an in-depth historical case study analysis of several countries, and to document and do interviews on how these industries are working with government. And, how government also works with industries in this area of trying to address childhood obesity, and type two adolescent diabetes. So how did you go about collecting data for the book? I did a qualitative comparative method, which is a bit different, as you know, from most people working in public health and epidemiological studies about childhood obesity and diabetes. That entailed a comparative historical analysis of several similar case studies. I chose cases in the emerging economies that, I think, reflected the biggest problems with obesity and diabetes in their region. But the goal of the comparison, was really to accentuate similarities between cases, and, also, the vast differences and uniqueness of the cases. I then went about doing the research through document analysis of several different sources, books, articles, policy reports, media news, talking about the issue, both in the English language, and also in the countries of Brazil and Mexico, the Spanish and Portuguese language. I did interviews with activists and researchers in several of these countries, although not all of them. I think bringing together all the different qualitative evidence was very effective in trying to thoroughly address this issue. It's a topic that has not been discussed that much. Bringing together the multiple evidence pieces took a long time. It produced a wonderfully rich book with lots of interesting information from different sources around the world. I, for one, really appreciate what you've done. So in the book, you have very detailed case studies, as you mentioned, of a number of countries, in particular countries such as Mexico and Brazil, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa. Let's talk about a few of these countries, and then, perhaps, we can return to something that you alluded to a moment ago. That there are quite striking similarities across the countries. So what did you learn about Mexico? I had lived in Mexico for several years doing research there, and the fast food culture and industry, and the consumption of soda, is extremely high. Compared to the US, Mexico's per capita daily consumption of soda is highest, arguably, in the world. Coca-Cola played a major role in that. Coca-Cola was in Mexico for many, many years, and the NAFTA Free Trade Agreement facilitated the arrival of Coca-Cola, and of many other kinds of ultra-processed foods and industries, into Mexico. Mexico is one of the world leaders in childhood obesity and type two diabetes. The government did, for many years, a good job of raising awareness to this issue. The National Institute of Public Health in Cuernavaca, for example, did fantastic work elevating the issue, convincing the government that something needed to be done about this ongoing health problems, especially among children and the poor. But what I found is while there was legislation being implemented, it was, a lot of times, delayed, and those policies that were created, such as limiting the presence of sodas within schools, were not really effectively enforced. A lot of parents reporting to schools that their children were still consuming soda products. Of course, everyone knows about the soda tax that was implemented in 2014 in Mexico, becoming the first in the world to have a national soda tax. That's been a very effective effort. But there are several years in which this was debated and delayed, and for many years industries resisted improvements to the food label, which was, eventually, recently accomplished. But all of this started to point to the power and influence of major industries and their interest group. One thing that I learned in this case is that industries also engage in several partnerships with government to try and take away the focus from regulations and improving food labels, for example. And one partnership is working with government to introduce the importance of exercise in schools. And it's something that we'll see, also, in the case of China. And so that has taken attention away, in addition to the lobbying efforts, and funding science and research sort of questions, from the efficacy of a soda tax. But one thing that was very important is that presidents also matter, and their relationships with industry. One president that really stood out was President Vincente Fox, who was a former Coca-Cola executive for the region. And that relationship facilitated industry's influence within government, and in connecting with politicians in influencing policy over years. But then later, subsequent presidents, like President Enrique Pena Nieto, worked with Nestle to address hunger eradication programs in Mexico. So these partnerships with industry, while they are admirable in trying to eradicate hunger, they also, at the same time, bring legitimacy to these industries. This facilitates their ability to influence policy. Those was some of the key lessons that I found in Mexico. So moving to a different part of the world, and, of course, to a different political system, what did you learn about China? China has seen a burgeoning growth in consumption of soda, and also fast food chain establishments. We've also seen a huge increase in childhood obesity, and adolescent type two diabetes. But was really striking about this case, is that the government has done a great job, not only of increasing awareness about the challenge, but emphasizing the importance of exercise as a primary way to try and address the issue and why this particular approach. Instead of regulation limiting sales and access to foods for children and the poor, in trying to emphasize this idea of exercise. Now I found that through the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), Coca-Cola, and other industry, had an influence. The ILSI found partners within the Ministry of Health, who created the ISLI of China, and through these partnerships, in these connections between I-S-L-I and major health officials, the idea of emphasizing exercise as a solution started to infiltrate, and really shaped government legislation. I cite the excellent work by Susan Greenhalgh at Harvard, who documented a lot of how this was happening. At the same time, we saw industries partnering with government, and government officials emphasizing sports and exercise as an approach. But surprisingly, there was really no effort to introduce regulations on advertising and marketing. Similar to what we've seen in the US, no effective food regulations or mandates on quality of sugar and products. That really was startling, given the huge problem that China's having with childhood obesity. But again, government partnerships with industry on eradicating poverty and achieving economic growth, certainly doesn't help, and overlooks the need to introduce regulations, and sees industry as a partner in trying to achieve China's broader efforts on poverty reduction and economic development. We're certainly starting to see some themes emerge in the stories that you're telling. So let's go to the third continent. What did you find in South Africa? South Africa is a very interesting case, where, again, like these other countries, you've seen a rise in obesity and type two diabetes. It's been very challenging because culturally, being overweight has been seen as a sign of health for some. Being thin, being associated with diseases, such as HIV, AIDS, or tuberculosis. So, one of the major hurdles that governments, and activists, have also been trying to address, is information about the health implications of being overweight. And then also the increasing public's knowledge about type two diabetes. Similar to the other cases, you saw government efforts, beginning in 2015, to address the national obesity issue. But there are very, very few effective policies introduced, such as regulations on advertising and marketing. These have basically been introduced as plans and ideas, with no concrete efforts yet. The government relied on self-regulation, where industries pledge not to market their products to children, and to be more responsible in that. Also, there have been no regulations on sales of these foods in and around schools, and no improvements in labels. Why has that been the case? Again, industry has been very involved through policy partnerships, working with government to emphasize, again, exercise. Companies, like Nestle, have done a very good job in providing nutritional education and training to schools. While admirable, these partnerships have distracted the government from pursuing needed regulations, and trying to address these issues, seeing that these industries are partners, and seeing no real need to introduce these regulations. But again, at the same time, presidents matter. You've had presidents with very strong connections to industries. The current president, for example, having been in consulting profession, direct ties to fast food industry. And they've seen these industries as a critical partner in addressing economic development, but especially job security, and job growth, and seeing them as a need to be there in prospering. But, at the same time, you've also seen a civil society that is starting to emerge, but has been challenged by industry's relationship with other nutrition researchers and activists, and not being able to work and create a broader mobilization effort to address this issue. %he activist community is just now starting to emerge. They don't have as many allies in society that they can work with. As we saw in China, that civic activist movement has been just very slowly emerging. That's been limiting as well. These comments, so far, are consistent across countries. Focusing on physical activity, for example, diverting attention away from industry influences and regulations that might affect them, weakening regulations, and things like that. What do you see as the main themes that are weaving through this picture? There are several themes. One is policy partnerships - industries partnering with government, and how this helps industry convince policy makers that regulations are not necessary. Those studying commercial determinants of health and nutrition, we all know this, but this has been especially prominent in the emerging economies. Another, is corporate social responsibility activities. There have been so many cases, wonderful efforts, that major soda and food industries are doing to increase education, nutritional awareness and training, even food regulation, and quality of food For example, with street vendors. But again, these CSR activities are taking away, and distracting from the need for regulations, while, at the same time bringing legitimacy, and social legitimacy, community legitimacy, to their product. Another major theme is that these corporate social responsibility activities, for example, sponsoring or providing support to NGOs, that contributes to dividing society. So, when industries partner with certain activists, or NGOs, that question the importance of particular policies, or libertarian principles, of having the right to eat whatever food that you want, whenever industries partners with these researchers and activists, it takes away from the number of activists, real activists, working on the issue can partner with. There are many cases where I interviewed activists are saying that, they don't have as many allies that they can work with, because of these other people. These nutrition researchers working with industry. So that was a major issue that came across. Another was institutions. Institutions matter very much, specifically, their ability to include civil societal interest in ideas. In the case of Brazil, I talk about Consell, a national council that was within the office of the presidency. And under the previous Lula administration, civil society had access to the office of the presidency in providing nutritional information, and recommendations for policy. Under the Bolsonaro administration, the Consell Institution was no longer present. But now it has reemerged again. That was the one case where institutions really mattered in guaranteeing access to activists. In all the other countries, these kinds of institutions were not present. A final theme is that presidential politics and policy matters considerably. We often point the finger to industries, you know, blaming them for everything, but this book really shows that we also need to blame presidents for not being more careful in the kinds of partnerships they engage in with industries. Even though their intentions may be admirable in trying to eradicate hunger, eradicate poverty, achieve economic job growth, by partnering with soda and food industries, they're also providing legitimacy to them, and providing excuses, not really to pursue regulations that may harm their prosperity. Those were the main themes that came out in the book. So a number of things have been tried around the world to counter industries influence. What do you think are some of the most promising? The most promising are effective regulations on advertising and sales of products. And there are very, very, very few great examples, but one, Chile, has seen amazing progress in introducing restrictions on the advertising of foods, by law, eliminating the usage of cartoons on cereal boxes, something that, of course, we haven't achieved yet in the US. That's been very effective in addressing this issue. I think that these sales and advertising regulations are just the most difficult to achieve, but can really get to the root of the problem, which is decreasing children's awareness, and interest, in food products. Another is incorporating civil society within institutions. The more the governments can provide a venue for activists to have presence within the Ministry of Health, and to actually introduce policy ideas, that can be very effective. I think that that's been, with the exception of Brazil for several years, absent in all of the countries that I looked at in my book. I think that's something that needs to really be taken more seriously. And then another, is investing in civil society, providing more funding for nutrition researchers, activists, and NGOs, that are trying to raise this issue about childhood obesity, but also the commercial determinants of health. That is still much needed area. The Bloomberg Foundation has done great work in Mexico, but we need a lot more in other emerging economies, and lot more support for these activists. These are efforts that can really help to address this issue. I'm happy you mentioned the Bloomberg Foundation, because, thanks to them, a number of these things have been evaluated, which really helps other countries be informed about what might be effective, and on what might not be. Are there things that are not being done that you would think might be considered? I do think that it's time that presidents around the world, and other health officials leaders, question their partnerships with industry. Question if it's really effective. I believe that there should be more of an effort to not have industry involved in nutrition policies, non-communicable disease policies, and, especially, policies that focus on childhood obesity. I think the case of China really showed that that can be a major problem. I think that one, political leaders need to take more leadership in reevaluating the effectiveness of these partnerships, and if they're appropriate. Another is that laws on regulations of conflict of interest need to be well established. Really, in none of the cases that I looked at are there federal laws and regulations on if industries can contribute money to nutrition conferences, sponsoring of nutrition conferences. In Brazil, they are now starting to address this, but in other countries, this has not really been addressed yet. This is unacceptable when there are industries that have conflict of interest, and are supporting nutrition scientists and researchers. One of the things that really needs to be done is increasing government, or foundation, support for nutrition scientists in these emerging economies, so they are not interested in working with industry. Finally, there just needs to be a lot more of a government commitment to civic inclusion in these kinds of policies. We all know the civil society matters. Of course, government officials will always say, of course, you know, we're listening to civil society. But the evidence on to what extent activists have access to national institutions and policy, is very, very scarce. I'm just not convinced that governments are doing enough to include activists into their national policy discussions in these emerging economies. With the exception, I think, of Mexico, now, hopefully, with Brazil, the other emerging economies that I talk about in the book really have not achieved, and I think that needs to be addressed. These are the issues that really need to be addressed going forward. Bio Dr. Eduardo J.

In today's grocery stores, you can find more sugary snacks, artificial ingredients, and ultra-processed packaged foods. At the same time, the United States has seen an increase in obesity, which is costing our healthcare system, too. Nutritionist Marion Nestle says the problem today isn't that Americans don't know how to eat healthy, rather the food environment that we live in has made it much harder to do so.In this episode, she discusses what policy changes are needed—from the way food studies are funded, to offering nutrition education in schools, to regulating the food industry better. Nestle is a Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, & Public Health at New York University, Emerita, and the author of many books, including Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health, and Slow Cooked: An Unexpected Life in Food Politics.Link to the advertised Chicago Booth Review podcast: https://www.chicagobooth.edu/review/podcast?source=cbr-sn-cap-camp:podcast23-20230320

The podcast episode is her first and she is from Salt Lake City, Utah, where it was three degrees at the time of recording. Kayl has had a very interesting life up until this point, having worked on giant yachts and other places. She has come a long way to start her own company, Serum. She talks about how her life has been colorful and full of different experiences that have brought her to the place she is in today. She talks about her journey and the importance of taking risks to reach success. She also explains the mission of Serum and how it is helping people to have better lives. Kahl encourages listeners to take risks and trust in their capabilities to reach their goals, and to not be afraid of failure. The speaker is 24-year-old who grew up in Arizona and was instilled with a passion for plastic from a young age by his dad, who works in the plastic industry. When the speaker turned 18, he decided to pursue a career in boats, working as a chef on boats from 60 foot sailboats to 200 foot super yachts. The speaker gives a brief explanation of the metric system and how it works. Her dad is still working in the plastic industry, with the company supplying the additive that allows plastic to biodegrade in landfills. The speaker's passion for packaging was influenced by her dad, and now she is taking the things his dad instilled in her and multiplying them. In the conversation, the speaker talks about their high school senior thesis paper about landfills and the importance of integrating them into the reduce, reuse, recycle mindset. They then talk about their experience as a chef on boats, and how they noticed the plastic waste that was being sent to landfills, sparking their interest in the plastic industry and waste management. The speaker then explains that their company, Serum, takes already recycled plastic and adds a biodegradable additive before turning it into single-use water bottles. This process creates a viable, valuable end of life solution for these plastics, while also helping to reduce plastic waste. The conversation discussed the process of what happens to food waste, plastic bottles, and other kinds of trash in a landfill. It is not the dump people have been told about for years, but a carefully engineered and managed space. As the waste decomposes, a methane gas is released and is now being captured and turned into renewable energy. This process of capturing methane from landfills is called the methane capture process and helps to reduce pollution and create a more circular economy. Additionally, the waste in the landfill breaks down within two to fifty years and helps to create energy instead of lingering in the environment.

Let's kind of pull it back here to Serum. I know you said you're starting with water bottles, but are you seeing this be able to grow where packaging can be contributing at the end of it? Like, you talked about how you're using PCR materials where now packaging is not only contributing to sort of the circularity that comes from recycling, but now also contributing back into the circularity that can come from waste to energy. I completely agree. Yeah. And I think people going and saying when their argument against this technology is saying, well, natural gas has its own issues, it's just like saying, well, landfills, it's like demonizing the word landfill, demonizing the word natural gas, and nothing comes close to the capture rate that landfills have when it comes to consumer behavior. If the fact of the matter is 95% of our waste is going to these landfills.. And right now the fight is everyone's saying, let's change that, let's change that, let's push this waste out of that environment. But if we just embraced that and said, okay, let's roll with that, that's an amazing capture rate. Landfills aren't horrible entities. Let's roll with this and see if we can turn this into a positive thing. We'd make incredible progress in both clean energy and waste management. Yeah. And thinking about that and natural gas probably has its own opponents and all that stuff, right? But it's like, if we can create natural gas from our natural habits instead of our natural habitats through drilling and fracking and all that stuff, I got to imagine and I have zero idea what the proportionality is, right? Somebody might come in and be like, well, our landfills can only create less than 1% of the natural gas. Okay, I don't know these things. That's just not the reality of waste management. In the year 2023, landfills are meticulously engineered, they're highly managed. And most importantly, basically, when the waste is in the landfill, it's putting off a methane gas as it decomposes. And now these landfills are capped. And the methane gas, instead of becoming a pollutant, is now turned into basically clean, renewable energy. It's turned into natural gas. And not only that, but it's a baseload energy source. It's constantly emitting methane, unlike wind and solar, where sometimes there's not wind, sometimes there's not sun, there's always going to be methane coming out of a landfill. Coca Cola is not doing it, Nestle is not doing it and it hasn't been combined with using already recycled plastics. So with serum we take already recycled plastic. That plastics can only be recycled a number of times. We're just kind of trying to find a viable, valuable end of life solution for these plastics. We take the recycled plastic, we add the biodegradable additive, the landfill biodegradable additive and then we turn it into whatever plastic application we'd be focused on.

Welcome to March 24th, 2023 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate saucy tails and movie sidekicks. Considering how long alcohol has been part of human culture, it's surprising that the first cocktail wasn't invented until the 1800s. Antoine Peychaud created the Sazerac in New Orleans using cognac, sugar, absinthe, and a dash of bitters. The name Sazerac comes from the brand of French cognac that was used, but these days the primary ingredient is rye whiskey. And why do we call these drinks cocktails? Supposedly, that first cocktail was served in an egg cup—or, in French, a coquetier—a word that morphed into cocktail. On National Cocktail Day, mix yourself a glass of your favorite drink. Raisinets are number 3 on the list of all time best selling candies. Created by the Blumenthal Brothers in 1927, Raisinets along with Snowcaps and Goobers are still manufactured to this day. That's a pretty good run for a candy that's been around for nearly 100 years, although Nestle has been making them since 1984. The best explanation for their longevity seems to be their association with movie theaters. Popcorn enjoys this same claim to fame and we are not complaining! On National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day, make your home theater pop with your favorite movie sidekick. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

Greg is extremely passionate about creating a world of ethical connections between both humans and technology. He emphasizes how virtual and physical experiences are paired together in order to enhance the human experience. Rather than having either virtual or physical experiences, why not have both? Greg discusses how physical and virtual can work together to create connectivity, engagement, as well as a space to improve mental health. Although he acknowledges that even during the pandemic, technology facilitated conversations and connections that couldn't be made in person, there still is an aspect of distraction that comes with our every day online interactions. He reminds us that the future of technology holds great possibilities for mobile devices, new emerging brands, as well as creating a world that we may not be able to comprehend yet. Some powerful takeaways from today's episode: “It's not either or, it's and”: virtual experiences are now gearing towards enhancing physical experiences In some ways, Covid facilitated a lot of technology growth such as Zoom, however, it also hindered a lot of advancements in technology When a brand becomes a part of a cultural movement , all bets are off and it can disrupt an entire industry Links: Greg Kahn's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/greg-kahn-580848/ THE RE:INVENTION EXCHANGE - for more Inspired Content, Blogs, Podcasts, Virtual Chats, or to buy a copy of my book RE:INVENT YOUR LIFE!

Really knowing the truth is not as simple as it sounds. The grey areas, philosophies and concepts. The VP auditions and cautious wife watch. Actual history as fact and function. @ScottyFilms says goodby. The Dunning Kruger Effect and what you think you know. A little is dangerous. What you don't know is knowledge too. The minimalist approach. Decision tools are also evaluation tools. Physical reactions and body chemistry. You must see everything else before the truth. Roofs on fire means hidden information. The Nestle' way. Warp speed means schedules going pear shaped. Two generals say war is coming. The Denver Airport psyops. Issues are building within our trust. Global black sites to examine. The airbase is called Eagle 44 you say. A Romanian wake up call. Wow, there's zero data latency in Bucharest. Mall deals and JOB. Louis Freeh as overseas defense attorney. The FBI presence is telling. What's under the Vitan Mall? Hunter, ten percent and that guy who's big. Remember, the stronger your own light of truth shines, the deeper the darkness will seem.
