Today we are breaking down Polaroid. For 30 years, Polaroid monopolized the instant photography industry, producing one Nobel-caliber breakthrough after another. As their products dazzled, sales grew from just under $1.5 million in 1948 to $1.4 billion in 1978. Today, the business is a shadow of its former self but the lessons from its history and especially from the founder endure. Edwin Land is not the most familiar name in business history, but he has had an outsized influence on the world in which we live. In particular, he was Steve Jobs's hero. To break down Polaroid, I'm joined by David Senra, who studies history's greatest entrepreneurs through his Founders podcast. David is uniquely qualified to distill the lessons and secrets behind Edwin Land and his life's work, Polaroid.

How do you 10x your company's growth in under a year? That's a hot topic for debate, especially among software and technology companies. But, you won't have to look far to find the answer. Because whether you explore the business model of leading productivity tool companies such as Slack, Grammarly, Loom, or Calendly – one thing becomes abundantly clear. Product Lead Growth is THE way to rapidly scale your company to not only attract users by the hundred thousands but to position your business to secure funding and next-level sales. But, the larger question becomes, what's the best strategy to implement a product lead growth strategy that truly enables a company to scale and enhances the user experience to create consistent sales. That's the focus of this episode of the Modern Selling Podcast, with a CEO guest who is one of the leading experts in the industry. Jennifer Smith is the cofounder and CEO of Scribe, a modern software solution that helps to capture, document, and streamline processes in minutes. With a background in sales and marketing, having worked with McKinsey, she has helped the largest companies redefine information sharing. With a passion and gift for efficiency and productivity, Jennifer searched for a solution that would make it easier for people to share multi-step processes within teams and organizations. How do you define product lead growth? Even though product lead growth has been a buzzphrase for over a decade, how it often is defined may change depending on who you ask. I was curious to hear Jennifer's take on what product lead growth is and why it's such a powerful strategy to scale. She shares, “With product lead growth, you're focused on the end user, which is oftentimes not the buyer. It's not the person who holds the budget, instead it's the person using the product on a continuous basis who can share it with others which helps to spread the individual user base even faster.” This is such an important distinction that has even powered the rapid growth of our productivity tool, FlyMSG.io. We've gone from a few beta users to over 5,000 active users in a little over a year with no marketing. That's the power that a compelling product can have in driving adoption and quickly positioning a tool as a must-use across a host of different industries. If you have a product and you're not at least tripling the size of your user base every three to six months, then you'll want to download this episode and listen carefully to the growth strategies Jennifer outlines. How does product lead growth really drive sales? It's clear that product lead growth does just that… leverage your product to grow your user base. However, unless a monetization strategy is used, having a large user base won't translate into overall sales growth for the organization. With FlyMSG.io, our text expander and personal writing assistant, we've been able to offer upgrades for paid users as well as enterprise contracts to generate consistent (and sizable) revenue from those who use our tool. But, I wanted to hear the strategies that Jennifer uses to convert Scribe users into long-term and loyal customers. She shares, “It's one thing to see your user base grow exponentially, but then the challenge is, you have to shift your focus from user growth to sales growth. In other words, how do you turn an individual user into a bigger contract or get free users to want to swipe their credit card. For us, we looked at our user data. What companies were users coming from? Where were our Scribes being shared? How could we find large groups of individual users that made it worth us reaching out to their companies to pitch an enterprise solution?” This is a brilliant strategy and one we've used at Vengreso with great success as well. In fact, in one day alone we saw over 20 free users from a single online pharmacy sign up for FlyMSG.io. That told us immediately that there was a potential sales opportunity there to create a corporate account. Listen into the conversation to see what other “signs” you should be looking out for when trying to monetize a product lead growth strategy. What specific strategies turn users into buyers? It's one thing to build a product, but it's another to create a product that users want to use and will pay for. Jennifer is the expert in this field and was clear on how she was able to position Scribe to quickly scale users and sales. She outlines three specific strategies: Build a magical product – your product should be magnetic and have instant value to your users. The faster you can get them using your product, the easier it will be to convert them into a paying customer. Create viral sharing loops – the key in product lead growth is to generate immediate sharing of the tool. For Scribe, a user creates a Scribe that is then easily shared with others via a link or through integration. The more sharing that takes place, the more eyes are placed on the tool and its usefulness – compounding the user growth over time. Give value away as often as possible – a product lead growth strategy only works if people see value in what you're offering and want to use it. The best way to do that is to get people into the tool as quickly as possible, with a low barrier to entry, and no user friction.

"Are the things you're chasing the things YOU want… or are they desires you've inherited from society?"Do your activities in the outside world leave you feeling fulfilled? Or do you feel a sense of emptiness, a lack of fulfillment, and a nagging feeling that surely, there must be more to life than this?If you feel any of the above, know you're not alone. It's not uncommon to feel confused either. After all, you thought you were headed in the right direction!Fortunately, there is a solution. We can empower ourselves to feel fulfilled when we learn to distinguish between the desires of our hearts and the desires inherited from society. Tune into this episode for more details, plus a journaling activity to help you practice and integrate this idea. Tune in now to hear us explore: The forces that cause us to desire more. Why we can feel empty and unfulfilled despite achieving the things we want?Leveraging inner work to unravel and know ourselves. Why our inner callings are the pathway to lasting satisfaction. Becoming aware of the way we're influenced externally. "When you've gone gut-deep, soul deep... when you know yourself that well, it becomes easier to distinguish between an inner calling and an external desire."Discerning the feelings that lie beneath the things we want. Why it can be easier than we think to find the things we're looking for.Exploring alternative ways to feel the way you want. Choosing long-term satisfaction over short-term excitement. Alignment, authenticity, and the power to make great decisions. And more...Deeply knowing what you want can give you so much power in your life. It's the pathway to alignment - where your external circumstances line up with who you are inside. It's the shortcode to informed choices too - where the decisions you make are most likely going to give you the outcomes you want. So give yourself the space to do this deep, contemplative work. It could be a game-changer. This week's journaling prompts. Ask yourself what you want. Feel into what you believe is the ‘thing' that will change or improve your life. Once listed, ask yourself WHY. Why do you want this thing?As you journal, notice the thoughts that bubble up and explore them. Keep the intention that you want to distinguish between heart desires and external influences.

The Autobiography of a Yogi was a phenomenally influential work which is still the most popular route to devotees taking refuge in Kriya Yoga as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda. Guruji also wrote many other books (God Talks with Arjuna, Second Coming of Christ and the lessons), numbering many thousands of pages, Tara Mata, Daya Mata and Mrinalini Mata have their seva stretched to the limit in typing the truth for us future devotees.

This is Matt Reustle and today we are breaking down the historic General Electric. Honestly, approaching this episode was a unique challenge. Today's GE barely resembles what was once the largest company in the world. So rather than purely focus on what's remaining, we decided to use a lens of “then versus now”. To break down General Electric I am joined by Josh Aguilar, a GE Analyst at Morningstar and enthusiast on all things capital allocation. It's a theme we revisit throughout the conversation on GE's time as a conglomerate, and its rise and fall. The story of GE has many chapters, the origin dates back to Thomas Edison in 1896 and while GE has long been classified as an industrial business for a very long time – it's hard to overlook the technological breakthroughs they've introduced; the incandescent light bulb, the ex-ray machine, the electric locomotive, and commercial jet engine. The business has had no shortage of historic products. But when Jack Welch took over in 1981 – he implemented a playbook that brought GE much praise over the coming decades, and Josh and I focus our conversation on the end of Welch's era until the present day. Now, if you'd like to hear more on the early years of General Electric and particularly Thomas Edison – make sure to check out our newest Colossus teammate David Senra and his podcast Founders. David conveniently dropped a new episode on Edison this week, and after my conversation, you'll hear a preview of that episode. So stay tuned for that, after my conversation with Josh. Please enjoy this breakdown of General Electric.

Bill Koch knows Cincinnati sports as well as any journalist after covering his hometown for more than 40 years. He goes deep into his story vault about Hall of Fame coach Bob Huggins, the subject of Bill's new book. Hear about the time they played each other in basketball, what Huggins was like to cover as a daily beat reporter, and why players have such strong allegiance to their former coach. Oh, and Bill tells the classic DMFHF story. He recalls chronicling University of Cincinnati moments such as the 1992 Final Four, Kenyon Martin's broken leg, and the No Handshake Game against Xavier. Bill also recounts being outside the courthouse in Los Angeles when the O.J. Simpson verdict came down, talking hair (or lack of) with Andre Agassi, and interviewing the reclusive Sandy Koufax one-on-one. Hear about a good screaming match between writers on the night that Pete Rose set baseball's record for career hits. Scribe battles are the best. And there's the time Marty Brennaman had a question for Bill the young reporter. Koch is the author of five books, the latest out now: “Huggs: Former Players Talk About What it was Like to Play for Hall of Fame Coach Bob Huggins.” Bill covered five Final Fours, two World Series, five baseball All-Star Games, a Super Bowl and the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. He worked at the Cincinnati Post from 1978 to 2001 and served as sports columnist for nearly his last five years there. Bill worked for the Cincinnati Enquirer from 2002 until Dec. 26, 2014, and then wrote for the University of Cincinnati's sports website for five years until retiring in 2019. His journalism career began in 1976 with stops at the Chillicothe Gazette and at Cincinnati's Community Press before spending three-plus decades – including 23 years as UC beat reporter on football and basketball – at the Queen City's two main newspapers.

When our needs go unduly neglected, frustration and the prospect of dire consequences can set in. That's especially true when we must rely on others to come through for us, particularly when they make promises that are vital to our well-being. A failure to follow through on our behalf can get out of hand quickly, with potentially explosive results.

The Scribe of the Supernatural himself, Arthur Unk, Head Writer of one of our favorite podcasts, The Grey Rooms, (yes we're talking about The Grey Rooms again) joins the guys to chat it up. We talked about the world of The Grey Rooms and what to look forward to in Season 5 (dropping around Halloween), angels, biblical ghost stories, Nikola Tesla, The Seven Sisters Road, and binaural tones. This was a really fun conversation, and I know we say this all the time, but it really felt like we were just hanging out around a campfire. You know your guest is comfortable (or drUNK) when they take their shirt off for the last little bit. So Hillfolk, choose a door in the Church of Unk if you dare. I mean, you don't really have a choice.

"Sometimes we deny, hide or edit what's present because we desire our reality to be different than what it is. When we explore what's present, we bring more honesty into our experiences." This week, I'm revealing a journaling technique that can help open new doors of insight and knowledge. In this week's episode, we explore:Why it's powerful to explore what's present now? in our journal. The power of exploring what's actually there (not what you wish were there). The expansion of sending your awareness into your body fully.Moving beyond the story by noticing what's present. Creating the space to see reality through fresh eyes. "Be aware that we can often see what we want to see and what we've always seen rather than what's actually there." Using curiosity as a gateway to more creativity. Seeing a familiar sight from a new perspective. What happens when we tap into the energy of the now. How to best explore what's present. The technique described. When to try this practice. And more...When you ask yourself what's present, you get to write from a place of presence and experience - not the mind alone.You can uncover something completely unexpected through this practice. It's a powerful way to shake things up and access more ideas, insights, and observations.This week's journaling prompt. What's present NOW?

"I was working at an urgent treatment center, where a busy Saturday in January would be overwhelming. At one point, I hired a scribe. She was a bright young woman interested in medicine and some alacrity with computers. It was a pleasant change of pace for me. She would accompany me into the exam room under instructions to remain unobtrusive and abide by HIPAA. I found that she could record the pertinent negatives and positives on the physical exam and the review of systems. She could record the assessment and plan as well. I was then able to give the patient my full attention during their 15-minute visit. I could even maintain eye contact and have a conversation without the distraction of a computer screen demanding my attention. I could feel like a human being instead of a data entry clerk."

Transcript: Berean Manifesto Live Recording! Season 3 Episode 90: Is This The End??? Or A Beginning??? Pastor Newms: [0:00] And then go hello and welcome to season 3 episode 90. Of the brand Manifesto faith hope and love for the modern. Pastor Bill: [0:13] Modern Christian. Pastor Newms: [0:14] I'm pastor newms and with me tonight is Pastor Bill. [0:21] Again yeah and yes Biggs that is the glare from the light and I'm going to fix it in a weird way because I'm not going to fix it in the correct way because to be honest, that smart light needs to be added to the house and we didn't get it added to the house in time because we went back to Home Depot and if anyone just saw I'm wearing shorts so don't judge me it's, I'm wearing shorts and I'm wearing a non graphic tee on a church night so, what's up y'all it's been a week so let's start by talking about our weeks, as I might or might not have mentioned we were doing some house stuff in preparing for a new friend to come stay with us and, he is here I'm looking at his empty desk chair at the moment because he is still downstairs eating with the girls because we got fast food while I after I dropped off the moving truck I flew out to DFW Friday, afternoon evening ish Pastor Bill and his son Gerg showed up too, our friend, I don't know if he wants us to use his real name or one of his gaming names in the Stream and I forgot to ask him because I haven't named him on purpose. Pastor Bill: [1:47] So within we use the gaming name. Pastor Newms: [1:49] Even I can't remember how to pronounce it because I'm yeah that, yeah so he's now living with us and so we're good. Pastor Bill: [2:04] Yeah he's ok he's eating but he can hear you apparently he replied Sez. Pastor Newms: [2:10] Okay gaming name and says okay perfect so. [2:20] There's no telling whether Biggs was making a joke or if there was a typo so we're just going to go with it so my so flew in on Friday Pastor Bill and Gerg, gracefully showed up to help us pack the truck which we weren't 100% expecting and so because of that we were able to get the truck packed in a couple hours instead of the almost day that I thought it was going to be of me and, me and him you know bringing stuff out we straight like, just pack the truck and so we ate dinner and then got on the road and we ended up here at about 11:00, and I just realized that I forgot to tell, Pastor Bill when we did get into Tennessee safely I just just realized that I did not communicate with him until today but that's okay because. He knows how I am so he's not going to judge me for that but. Pastor Bill: [3:22] I figured if something went wrong wrong like I'd be getting a call from your wife, and I didn't get a call from your wife so I was like I said everything is fine. Pastor Newms: [3:30] So this week is a little different as we've said yeah it's big says hey Pastor Bill he's safe in Tennessee. Pastor Bill: [3:43] Serve now because I was wondering. Pastor Newms: [3:45] Pastor Bill is back yay for those out there who didn't figure that out in the time that I've been talking and hearing him so far but that's okay we. For the next you know for the last couple of weeks we've been going through basically, it's been the there that's better he's now bigger congratulations. Pastor Bill: [4:35] You make me bigger. Pastor Newms: [4:36] I did make you bigger I made you as big as I think I make myself normally because I never fully fleshed-out what you would look like on here, I just put your box in the corner like when I need him he's there. Pastor Bill: [4:52] You put me in the corner. Pastor Newms: [4:53] I put baby in the corner so we drove here, we've been biggest came over today Biggs put up blackout curtains for our, office Biggs put up blackout curtains in his bedroom change the shower head hung some extra pictures this week that was last week he helped us get some light bulbs put in right biggs's hearing about this for the first time but the next time Biggs is over we have a couple of new things to be installed in the house that we stopped and got at Home Depot and I also got clips for the outside of the house too, run the wire that I drilled into the side of my house our Network wire, mom says I'm saying too much information and so you know it happens so yeah Biggs helped us out with a whole bunch of stuff in the house and so it's just been a kind of a runny, you know catching up week and so I did not. [6:14] Fully start the next part so we've been talking about you know the things I believed in and I. [6:25] You know kind of the things that I feel the strongest about that we either Miss as Christians or that we don't do quite right or that could be better in and that's what we've been talking about for the last several weeks, and then starting next week we're going to be talking about discipleship and being a disciple, for several weeks, based heavily on a amazing Bible study by an amazing person and we'll get into that next week, and we. So this week because the week has been a little crazy and crazy at work as well, we're just going to be talking about a filler, not a filler episode but it's not in our the format that I've been doing and it's not our next, Story series so this was kind of a filler one so Pastor Bill how was your week, do you really find it that fun being in the corner cuz you keep looking up at me. Pastor Bill: [7:47] Tell me as I can look up at you and you're like huh. Pastor Newms: [7:51] So you do see why I continue to do that to you and because it always irritates you like why are you doing that and I'll point it chat and you're like why are you pointing at chat now you see how fun it is being in the corner, and doing things like that the whole time you understand that don't you. Pastor Bill: [8:08] I understand now yeah I understand get it. Pastor Newms: [8:10] Yeah yeah so how was your week. Pastor Bill: [8:14] How is my weak man. Pastor Newms: [8:16] Let's rephrase that how was your 9 weeks, you can just talk about your week I'm joking with you they say haven't heard from you in nine weeks. Pastor Bill: [8:28] That's a lot of info to don't bother one time nine weeks worth of. Pastor Newms: [8:32] Yeah that weeks of how you do it that would be that. Pastor Bill: [8:37] On day one week one I got up and I ate breakfast. Pastor Newms: [8:39] Oh no we're not going that route homie. Pastor Bill: [8:47] Now this week was good I guess they don't remember much of the week / get the usual I mean I remember coming and helping load a trailer on Friday evening. Pastor Newms: [8:57] Yeah I just do a fidget, at our middle child walking down the stairs because I can do that because the stairs are right next to my desk so in case you guys wondered why I just went woo I literally just threw my fidget at the child, so she gave she brought me back my fidget so since she brought me back my fidget she earned a hug for bringing back my fidget that I threw at her, because that's just fair, that's fair throwing a fidget at a child's head you deserve a hug after that because that's that's. Pastor Bill: [9:45] I officially registered a child for school without yelling at the people in the office. Pastor Newms: [9:51] Did you make it through without yelling this time wow that is amazing. Pastor Bill: [9:59] Last year last year I. Pastor Newms: [10:01] Last year you yelled a lot. Pastor Bill: [10:03] Man I yell at the people in the for those poor office people that were just trying to do their jobs this year I didn't yell at nobody I'm yeah one time and nobody. Pastor Newms: [10:12] I remember. Pastor Bill: [10:13] Is now gurke and Randa are both going to public school and that starts on Wednesday morning. Pastor Newms: [10:21] Starts Wednesday morning we are officially starting school, at some point next week because we were going to start Monday but I don't think I am I don't think I'm ready to start on Monday and so, Tennessee has this whole thing where you have to be in school doing education and logging your hours for 180 days, I don't know what so it's similar there I'm assuming now. Pastor Bill: [10:56] The public school is held to that standard but homeschool is not. Pastor Newms: [11:00] So here even homeschool you have to log 180 days and so because of that the girls were like well is that going to affect and I was like no because, you don't realize like at school school you have 180 educational days so like all those days that aren't educational those don't count, those are the those are the days that they lot for, snow days that you don't take and so the that's why that's why I was like maybe that's why that's why sometimes when you go to school they're like here's this picture hey let's watch a movie hey let it's because those days were, plan for in the lesson plans and I said so you know that's one of the aspects of homeschooling you can just kinda plow through those days and then use those days for Vacations or use those two as long as you're sticking to those days, so yeah so it's been a fun. Pastor Bill: [11:59] You're also going to find that. When you go to teach something instead of like in public school it would take an hour or two hours three hours because you've got to get everybody on the same page. Pastor Newms: [12:12] Yeah. Pastor Bill: [12:12] You're going to be doing like 10 to 15 minutes of teaching and it's going to be like okay well there's, what would have been 3 hours in public school cuz now you you've already learned it can you got one on one you know so everything goes a lot quicker. Pastor Newms: [12:25] Yeah and and we're going to do a lot of fun stuff to sonoda is going to be teaching math doing the initial lessons and then I was helping with homework and stuff. Pastor Bill: [12:39] I think about getting a CPA to teach maths. Pastor Newms: [12:41] You needed another yeah having a tax accountant, teach math is a whole lot easier and she's going to be teaching Spanish which. Pastor Bill: [12:55] One. Pastor Newms: [12:58] Is great for children to learn a second language and better when it's. Pastor Bill: [13:02] Neither you nor Tina. Pastor Newms: [13:05] Speak a second language. Pastor Bill: [13:06] Spanish. Pastor Newms: [13:07] Now to be fair to Tina to zaidi she speak she understands. Pastor Bill: [13:14] We're satiable understanding. Pastor Newms: [13:16] And she can read and understand what she reads she just cannot speak, so that's cool and then we learned. Pastor Bill: [13:27] The one side of her brain gets it but the other side. Pastor Newms: [13:30] Right. Pastor Bill: [13:31] Hasn't quite gotten it. Pastor Newms: [13:33] We also learned this week that we are going to be teaching them some light Early Educational programming as well as using. Pastor Bill: [13:47] You're going to be programming your kids. Pastor Newms: [13:49] No we're not we're not going to be programming to kids but since we have a programmer who now lives. Pastor Bill: [13:56] Oh program meaning I see I see your needs them how to program. Pastor Newms: [14:01] Lives there but sits right there in his chair now as he rocks, is going to be teaching he just did this when I said as he rocks as opposed to throwing up the rock fist as opposed to the fact that he's rocking in a chair hmm anyway. Pastor Bill: [14:22] Power up your breakfast. Pastor Newms: [14:24] He's going to be teaching some programming and maybe some other stuff that's fun so we're going to have a nice well-rounded group of for this you go to this person for this you go to that person as opposed to what you've had to do and Roxas had to do is it's the two of you and your you're doing everything I'm like hey I packed the house full of adults. Pastor Bill: [14:51] There are lots of online resources to. Homeschooling lots and lots and lots of online resources. Pastor Newms: [14:58] So your week has been good my week has been good the warm-up is taking a little longer this week that's going to. Pastor Bill: [15:08] When did you take the when did you take the board down the the Whiteboard. Pastor Newms: [15:16] The Whiteboard that was right here oh you oh you didn't you didn't listen to the podcast last week. We are in a completely different room, we are in the bonus room of my house which is now the office the office is now the classroom, and so we are in a completely different room which is why and you can't you can't see it because I hit the camera earlier this week and so I'll fix it but, above me right is your wife's bats and cholo Mander now lives up there, and our love thingy is up here I stink at directional pointing and, and so I have to readjust because in moving stuff I completely hid the camera earlier this week so that's actually better now but yes there is not a whiteboard here yet I will put it back up and I will draw the little man and I will write the words above the little man that, chat can't read which is good because mmm. They weren't nice where's anyway so. Pastor Bill: [16:34] All right is it time for getting to know the pastors. Pastor Newms: [16:37] It is time to getting know the pastor's do you actually want to pull a card since I've pulled a card. Pastor Bill: [16:41] You hate my cards though. Pastor Newms: [16:43] I do hate your card so let's reminisce on the fact that I hate your cards I pulled out my deck in case you were like I don't get ready for that I don't remember. Pastor Bill: [16:57] It says. Pastor Newms: [16:58] I'm going to laugh it stinks really bad. Pastor Bill: [17:00] Serious question do you count your steps. Pastor Newms: [17:06] Do I count my steps in the way of having a wish thing that counts my steps or do I count as I walk what do you want to interpret that as. Pastor Bill: [17:16] Who would who would all day long be like 128 thousand three hundred and seventy-four. Pastor Newms: [17:23] I don't count one two three four eight thousand 34 but I do count stairs steps between rooms steps as I walk through stores when I'm unconsciously doing so I'll find myself just counting while I walk or saying words like left right left right left right left right in my brain I do not currently use a step counter because. Pastor Bill: [17:49] Lip let brightly. Pastor Newms: [17:51] No I walk much faster than that it's not that slow we're not marching we're watching we're walking here we're walking. Pastor Bill: [17:58] We're walking here I'm walking here what's your name. Pastor Newms: [18:00] So do you wear a step counter I don't think you do. [18:15] Yeah so for us no pedometer. Pastor Bill: [18:21] An Apple iPod Nano that was you know with a watch band and it would count my steps. [18:43] I just know I know I had that one the thing when I was working at Gateway and I was walking an average of about anywhere from 10 to 13 miles a day. To do all the setups everyday. Pastor Newms: [18:56] That's too much walking that's too much walking okay so we have now gotten another pastors. And we have done the warmup, and it's so nice to have Pastor Bill joining us again because I didn't take 7 minutes like it did one of the weeks okay. Pastor Bill: [19:29] Last week we're talking about. Pastor Newms: [19:31] So this week we're talking about yeah Biggs I don't want to know how many steps you take in a day either because you're on that line, just walking around cars all day long and moving up and down and I don't even want to know like that's, that's craziness so what we're talking about this week for those of you watching on Twitch or something or watching on a podcast thing it's down there at the bottom and it said it when you clicked the episode unless you're just running through episode after episode but tonight's title is is this the end question mark question mark question mark or. Pastor Bill: [20:16] Don't Dom. Pastor Newms: [20:18] A beginning question mark question mark question, just an important thing you know as me and Bill have talked about, over the last couple of weeks there's been a lot of change a lot of differences a lot of a lot of moving around a lot of all kinds, differences in things and, you know we me and Pastor Bill yesterday. No day before yesterday when we were in person we're talking about the fact that you know sometimes. [21:03] It looks like the end when it's merely the beginning of a new chapter but it is nearly impossible when you're going through that end, to see the fact of oh wait we're just going to a new chapter we're beginning a new stage where transfer, where transitioning we're transforming we're becoming different were changing what we are who we are different things like that we have we struggled to see that as, people as humans now. [21:39] This part of the discussion tonight is not religious this this area of the discussion this is just, and so it's so hard so often so so far we haven't gotten to scripture yet Biggs will get there I promise, there's only two today but we'll get there so at this point you know it's, so often we're going through things we're learning things were starting starting a new year school you know that's the end of summer break, and as a kid I remember and I know I know Pastor Bill you member and anyone out there who listens to certain comedians you member but. [22:37] The, when that summer break ends you're like it's the end of the world like I don't want to go I don't want to go back every week, the weekend ends the work week starts for people who love their job all the work weekends and the weekend starts which if that's you, please find a hobby because stop being so excited. Pastor Bill: [23:11] Paying them to do it is their Hobby. Pastor Newms: [23:13] Some people are happy all the time and I don't understand because I'm not, I got it I got a mask at work where it's like how you guys doing you guys have a great day man I hope you're having a great. I have not yet. Pastor Bill: [23:35] Not going to spoil anything. Pastor Newms: [23:36] That's good cuz. Pastor Bill: [23:37] So they're there is a character in like 1312 1292 some like that, and just life is awful you know black plague and all kinds of stuff going on and and this guy's like I'm going to live forever and they're like really you want to live forever, maybe back here in 100 years, and we're going to see and so that's that's that's as much spoilers you're going to get is that the Hundred Years passes they me back up and then like so how's life been and he's been like oh life is awful. [24:20] Want to keep going he's probably keep living and so it's just funny as some people are just here's to Happy. Pastor Newms: [24:28] They're optimistic they're optimistic about life and there's nothing wrong with that, people being optimistic is good we need those type of people in the world to balance out those of us that, art and I love the argument so many times pessimists will make the argument I'm not a pessimist I'm a realist I'm just going with what snow, you're not you're a pessimist like the rest of us stop being prideful you're just you're just a pessimist who Who quote unquote is using. Pastor Bill: [25:00] I've said that I've used that before I've said no I'm a realist, honestly that's a pessimists answer, to the question of are you a pessimist or are you an optimist it's the pessimists answer of don't put me in a box. It's you can't you can't have it your way it's got I'm going to pick a third option because I do I can't see how being in either box is a good thing. Pastor Newms: [25:28] Hm Pastor Bill: [25:29] Oh so you're look you have a pessimistic outlook on even the scenario, and so really when you think about optimism. [25:44] Is when you're flying a plane there's the attitude is are you pointing at the ground are you pointing at the sky this is your attitude in a plane and pessimism your pointed down well you're going to go down, and optimism your pointed up you're going to go up so optimists have this way of. Seeing life in a certain way that they're expecting things to get better so when they get the opportunity to pounce on something getting better, they take advantage of those situations where as pessimists are expecting things to always get worse and so when life does get worse it's a reinforcement of we'll see I told you so, and when things can get better they go no I don't trust that I don't trust that that's just that's false. Pastor Newms: [26:32] It's going to get worse I saw very interesting, me more thing I remember I saw it I don't remember what I could even call it don't matter whether it was a video or meme or something it just the thought Stuck to me and it was it was that whole glass full glass empty, and they were like oh the glass is half-full all the glass is half empty and then another person was like the glass is exactly where it should be and that was supposed to be the realist and and then the fourth person was like the glass is full, glass is full because it's full of water it's half full of water and half full of air so it's full. Pastor Bill: [27:08] Completely full. Pastor Newms: [27:09] And you're like and that's not a pessimist or an optimist that's. Pastor Bill: [27:13] That's a Lay's chips employee. Pastor Newms: [27:15] That's we have a wall that's rude that's rude homie Lays chips are not the only one who do that we are not going to bad-mouth Frito-Lay cuz I like Frito-Lay it is not just Lays chips, it's all chips all chips do that except for Pringles Pringles doesn't I saw. Pastor Bill: [27:36] Girl Scouts of the kid is he becoming a puffed up there. Pastor Newms: [27:39] I saw I saw me bit it says shout out to Pringles they don't sell air and you're like I was like what oh, it's true which Frito-Lay has a version that is and it's they were in it didn't do well so they didn't keep going for very long I don't think I don't know if they're still even around but um, so you know when we look at things like that, there's positive there's - there's middle there's this there's but one of the things we have to look at is hey, let's we have to keep going together whether you think it's the end whether you think it's a beginning whether you think it's a transitional period whatever you think it is either way, please continue to think it is and please continue to move forward that's that's what's so important and, now for the. Christian part of the Brie and Manifesto for the week okay hold on. Pastor Bill: [28:45] Hold on hold on so whenever whenever someone talks about beginnings and. [29:09] Chip getting cheated on, um and I've heard that over and over and over and over and over you know how how you enter situation is how you're going to end up leaving the situation you if you get a new job, and you just walk out on your old job no notice no you no ample do, we respect and that's bad then you're setting yourself up to reap that again. [29:45] President Biden gave a speech I don't know if it was this week or last week or maybe it was an old clip anyway it was kind of funny because he said democracy and Insurrection don't mix, and I'm sitting there laughing like you do realize you're a president of a country that started by an act of insurrection right. Like you literally lead a Democratic Republic that started by hit active Insurrection so you can't say, the two don't mix they literally and that's what created this government was an act of insurrection, and got me a little worried because then I was like oh well if we started that way then. Pastor Newms: [30:32] Wow. Pastor Bill: [30:33] Ending that way. Pastor Newms: [30:34] Well let's think about this for a second if we started that way, at War right we have continued to be at War. Pastor Bill: [30:45] We don't know if we've ever not been at some win some more. Pastor Newms: [30:49] Either a conflict or War I mean we are a nation that is conflict oriented we, internally externally infighting out fighting we are constantly, we don't really have peaceful times that's why we have one of the larger one of not the one of the largest armies in some of the largest military spending is because we are a conflict driven country and that's how we start it now, doesn't mean, that proves the adage that you said but it is an interesting thought process like you said of a good thought experiment of hey does that apply to everything like you know and 10 scary does it apply to everything often also. Pastor Bill: [31:45] That was that was the non-biblical stuff I was going through my head since I read. Pastor Newms: [31:52] Since I sent you what what we're going to try to talk. Pastor Bill: [31:54] Heads up earlier yeah. Pastor Newms: [31:55] That I sent you way late because I was sitting here going I don't know what this week should be and then. Our friend was like we've had a lot of change that's that's valid yeah let's go that route we have that whole lot of change and then of course then your mind starts you know. That is that is not. [32:31] So I was doing research and I grabbed a scripture that said what I was looking for it to say, and which is never good because as bereans this is one of those times we're going to have this conversation as bereans we always talk about you know don't just pull part of a scripture and I didn't know this was part of the scripture I assumed based on what book it was in and what it was around that it was valid, Todd so we're going to read it because the last part of this scripture is, the reason that I pulled it but this is a Nehemiah. [33:21] And it says and he said to them so let's step back a verse because let's be honest we got to do that when it's a he said so the verse starting in verse 9 Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest and Scribe and the Levites who were instructed the people to them this day is Holy to the Lord do not mourn or weep for all the people, we're weeping as they heard the words of the law so this was the reading of the law again in nyam Nehemiah, and then he said to them go and eat what is Rich drink what is sweet and send portions to those who have nothing prepared, since today is Holy to our Lord do not grieve because the joy of the Lord is your strength now that last half is, is we hear that a lot and it's several places in scripture but this is the one that I happened to pull that it's just part of a verse as opposed to the whole meaning, but you know the joy of the Lord is your strength. And I find it to be funny now the next verse says in the Levites quieted all the people saying be still since the day is Holy don't grieve and. [34:43] I find it kind of humorous because I picked this verse and then I said the whole thing about hey we should take this into context and now looking at it as a whole we have a situation that arises. Any Amaya you know there's a lot going on you know there's the report, it's kind of get some back story of Nehemiah. There's there's a lot I don't even know kind of how to you know everything's destroyed. You know Nehemiah helps to rebuild everything the whole city. Pastor Bill: [35:26] They were in Exile. Pastor Newms: [35:27] Yeah they were in Exile he gets the report that hey everything's trashed he weeps the king sees it the king gives him a bunch of stuff to go back they build everything, and then we get to the point where we are Warez. Pastor Bill: [35:42] While they're building it they get accused of. Pastor Newms: [35:46] Oh yeah yeah which the King was like nehemiah's homeboy because Nehemiah was like his one of his top servants and a friend. Pastor Bill: [35:56] The King was like what are you what are you talking about I gave him those supplies I don't. Pastor Newms: [36:02] Yeah I gave him the money I funded him I protected him so I sent him God. Pastor Bill: [36:08] Might as well be my project what do you mean he's trying to overthrow me. Pastor Newms: [36:12] And he's my friend and I told him to build the walls because, I didn't want him to die like and so then we get to this point and Ezra who also has, it's actually the book that comes before Nehemiah in the order that they compiled the 66 books, reads the law again to the people who were in Exile and since they were and didn't have access to everything so it's been a. Pastor Bill: [36:47] Not just yeah not just reads it but literally they have to read it and then have a translator translated into the common tongue of the day because they didn't speak the language It Was Written in any. Pastor Newms: [37:02] They read out loud the book of the law translating and giving the meaning so people could understand what was read and I love I love that it does say that translating and giving the meaning, because they lost touch with that, you know at that time and the people start weeping and are terrified and scared and sad and upset because they haven't been following it, and so then we have you know as we're going hey hey hey hey hey that's not the point of this the point is not. Pastor Bill: [37:35] This isn't this isn't a got your moment. Pastor Newms: [37:38] Yeah this isn't a gotcha this isn't a time where we should be sad upon the changes that are going to happen which I did not know this this is always funny when this happens because I did not know this is where I was pulling from, we need to Rejoice because the Lord is your strength and so that's the aspect that I wanted to pull from this area and then ended up you know if there's a lot more here to unpack. Which is. Pastor Bill: [38:05] It's the first day of a new season. Pastor Newms: [38:07] Yeah this is this is where how we're starting it, don't don't grieve don't get upset and then so the people did in verse 12 the people began to eat and drink and they sent portions to the people that couldn't and they had a great celebration because they understood the words that were explained to them once it was explained, and it and then they have a feast directly after the next day and you know keeps going but it's it's that aspect of, here to beat you down not you know as we transition into New Seasons, we can lean on the Lord because even if we feel because often as humans we try to find the worst in it Human Nature, to most of us not all most of us is pestis it pessimistic it is we have a tendency as humans to find the - to find the, in other people in situations you know across the board and so. [39:18] Ask for transitioning into new sections the Lord isn't there to be like this is a punishment so because of that, I'm cutting you off of this situation in forcing you into a new one it's often hey this is a new situation let me let me help you you know we need to lean, on the Lord but not and not you know. Stress out about okay why is this happening to me I'm not saying we don't because let's be honest we all do but there's bill just flashed us off for some reason what did you. Pastor Bill: [39:58] Sorry. Pastor Newms: [39:59] The light just what light did you touch on your computer that caused all that to happen uh-huh. Oh Pastor Bill: [40:11] Adhesive gave up I guess. Pastor Newms: [40:12] It just it just illuminated the side of your face all of a sudden like hello. Pastor Bill: [40:16] It just it just fell it's just this. Pastor Newms: [40:20] Oh okay. Yeah that's that's funny so that you know that's that's the Aryan Emi of you know, the joy of the Lord is your strength that's the meaning behind that it's not just hey this hey that it's not just you know, the Lord says to always be joyful its hey the Lord is joyful in us the Lord is joyful with us the Lord is so lean on that, and find strength in that not, you know I've heard this verse not this particular but that saying used like the joy of the Lord is your strength so you have to be happy in order to get it because it's joy in the Lord and you're like no well no no no no it's fine, from the Lord. Pastor Bill: [41:16] So I was reminded of a scripture and I had to look it up real quick just to make sure I was coming out right and it's from Lamentations, now if you don't know Lamentations Lamentations is, it's a collection of small versus or poems or however you want to say it and when you're reading through limitations you'll get a new, a new title legs a in cheff teth yodh calf um, and these are no markers to let you know this is where we've cut source and we're pulling from a new source now, so we want to turn the Lamentations chapter 3 if you're turning if you're not whatever Lamentations chapter 3 and we're going to start in verse 22 right so not only does the Lord say Okay I want a new season let's move forward but, when you look in Lamentations it reads because the Lord's faithful love we do not perish, for his mercies never end they are new every morning great is your faithfulness I say the Lord is my portion therefore I will put my hope in him, it's not just that God isn't doesn't want to gotcha for things you've done in the past and suddenly there's some new thing, any you know he wants to turn over some big New Leaf it's literally that every morning. [42:45] God is looking for the opportunity for you to go hey let's move forward from this point on. [42:54] And God is going cool let's do it let's let's put aside everything that came before this point and let's move forward every morning, every morning he's looking for that opportunity. Pastor Newms: [43:08] And and I find I'm actually going to go to the verse before that, you know we started in 22 but if you look at 21 it's like yet I call this to mind and therefore I have hope so it's him remembering this as he's talking. Pastor Bill: [43:25] It's not really because that's anyway. So it's a chopped-up thing and they put things together to create Lamentations so yes the person that collected it decided to put that there, but it's a it's an excerpt from something else that then they said well this would flow well if we put it here. Pastor Newms: [43:46] Yes I forget that about limitations that it's a hodgepodge and not just a hodgepodge from like the normal, way certain areas like Psalms is put together its. Pastor Bill: [44:01] Think of think of like like, macrame to like tell a silly story you like you're cutting out I'm going to take this sentence from this newspaper and this sentence from this magazine and then put them together as if they were the same writing that's that's kind of what limitations is. Pastor Newms: [44:20] And I don't have one that's got it denoted well because the source I'm using does not have it to know did well. Pastor Bill: [44:27] Yeah but between 21 and 22 is one of those cuts. Pastor Newms: [44:29] Okay okay it does flow well though I mean because the area above it and then I was gonna say you know let's go even farther it's straight up like. Pastor Bill: [44:44] Yeah I'm in a dark place I am. Pastor Newms: [44:45] I'm in a dark place I remember them and have become depressed and yet so they did well putting it together because it's like you know next thing. Pastor Bill: [44:58] Well in hindsight it's really easy to go to to poetically pull together these themes and then have a translator then translate it into another language probably two or three times to get to where we are now so that it, it sounds and feels like one writing you know what I mean. Pastor Newms: [45:17] So I'm going to jump now to I'm not going to highlight come on word behave yourself what I want to look at now is Isaiah 41:10, and it's do not fear for I am with you do not be afraid for I am your God I will strengthen you I will help you I will hold onto you with my righteous right hand so, again it's one of those things where hey hey I'm not here to you know, Force this upon you and shove this change down your throat and to you know yes you're going through something and while you're going through it I'm right here and you know it. Pastor Bill: [46:07] Like yeah. Pastor Newms: [46:09] It brings upon that that poem, that you know the footprints in the sand I don't remember who wrote it but it's that whole thing of you know why do I only see one footprint did you abandon me in these times and this like know I was carrying you and, where's that's not necessarily, scriptural in this is the exact way you know that story isn't written in scripture these are examples of that of no no I was right there. Pastor Bill: [46:41] There's there's this sentiment is is is in the Quran as well this idea of, don't fear the lord your God is right there with you and the idea that it Expresses in the court which okay so you know as a as a person myself I believe a lot like Paul does and he says, you know you can look at everything and take everything that's good, and point you to God and keep it and then reject everything that doesn't right so there's there's this idea in the Quran that God is as close as your throat right and the idea is that you're your jugular vein, you know that you see people slitted movies or whatever that God is that clothes he's as close as your jugular vein in your neck, and what could be closer than that vein what could be more involved in your life than if someone who is that close, right there he's going through it with you he's there to protect you and to guide you and he feels all the pain that you feel because he's right there, so I like that idea I have that same idea that this verse you know expresses. Pastor Newms: [47:55] So Biggs just said to help submit the fact that I forgot something, he cemented the fact that I did not forget it and I'm assuming this also came from my wonderful mother, they don't know who wrote Footprints in the Sand so I didn't forget so that makes me happy because overall, no one knows so I didn't forget we just don't know, but that's you know that's kind of what I wanted to talk about tonight and. Pastor Bill do you have anything else on this topic now that we're back to our almost our format. Pastor Bill: [48:55] Overtime 12 different people have claimed credit for writing that poem. Pastor Newms: [49:02] You had already Googled it now now you see also why it's so easy to Google when you're in the corner because you're not the one leading. Pastor Bill: [49:11] No one and no one can actually prove beyond a shadow of a doubt their claim. Pastor Newms: [49:16] Ah what time period did it show up in originally. Pastor Bill: [49:33] 19:36 is the earliest appearance of footprint in the sand. Pastor Newms: [49:36] Really I thought it was older than that interesting okay. Pastor Bill: [49:41] There is a there is a. Pastor Newms: [49:52] But not exactly. [49:57] Interesting so that's kind of what I wanted to talk about tonight and and then you know gay Pastor Bill joined us to talk about it as well. And you know is that whole aspect of change happens change sucks, it is painful we hate it no matter why the change is there now normally you know you're building muscle change sucks you turning your chair and your tweak your back change sucks because she changed position get it. Pastor Bill: [50:29] Sometimes sometimes there's a good change. Pastor Newms: [50:31] Sometimes there are good changes but that doesn't mean it's not painful sometimes sometimes there is good change that isn't. When you're like me and have that little touch of neuro Divergence little touch that's cute when your inner Divergent change pretty much always sucks even if you're just changing. Pastor Bill: [50:53] When your when your workplace is like oh we looked at your resume wrong when we hired you should have started at this rate so now we're going to raise your current rate of pay to this because of it that's good chick. Pastor Newms: [51:06] You going to change my job title you can change my job responsibilities to or just my pay. Pastor Bill: [51:11] Schnapps to pay. Pastor Newms: [51:12] All right that would be a good change that yeah I agree okay so fine way to find flaw in my statements. Pastor Bill: [51:21] Applause I found an optimist point of. Pastor Newms: [51:24] Oh don't start with me with that we just had this argument we're not going backwards all right so that being said I do not know why I just clapped on the mic because that is rude as all get out, thank you guys for joining us we record this live at 6:30, Sunday evenings sometimes it's 631 because my stuff was not together at 6:30 but and we do so with a five minute countdown that was I don't even know how many minutes, cuz I restarted it four times, it's nice been fun and that's why you should join us live not just listening to the recording because we are much more fun, live and you can join us in the chat like Biggs did in Phoenix did and zadie and even Pastor Bill at one point.

This is Dom Cooke and today we are breaking down the freight railroad business, Union Pacific. Union Pacific is interesting for a number of reasons. Its first tracks were laid in a time of horsepower, over 150 years ago. It operates a duopoly in the West of the US with Burlington Northern Santa Fe, a rail owned by Berkshire Hathaway. And despite being capital intensive, it earns higher operating margins than Microsoft. But above all, it is a crucial link in the global supply chain, moving much of what the US economy is built on. To break down this $140 billion railroad operator, I'm joined by Matt Reustle, the CEO of Colossus and a former transport analyst.

"Self-love is a journey for most of us. It's not a destination because - as with anything in life - there are always opportunities and experiences that we can engage with to expand the way we experience self-love." In this week's episode, we focus on a journaling technique that can elevate self-love. Tune in now to explore: What self-love is and what it looks like.The correlation between self-love and how we show up in the world. Why a lack of self-love can spark people-pleasing tendencies. Understanding that self-love isn't selfish. The link between self-love and authentic service. "Self-love is saying positive things to yourself. It's having that ability to check the inner critic, so it doesn't drag you down." Why more is better when practicing list journaling. What to do if the inner critic shows up when compiling your list? Why list journaling works best when you sit with it. Remember how loving words can elevate and inspire. What would happen if the self-love switch was activated all over the world? And more...It takes courage to cultivate self-love -- especially if you've been shut down in the past and told that you are bragging or a big head. Allowing yourself to create a self-love list can open the gateway to more courage, confidence, and appreciation for who you are. What's more, the more self-love you feel, the more loving you can be towards other people (because you have more love to give). This week's journaling prompt. Write a list of things you love about yourself? Expansion activities: Ask yourself WHY you've put your answers on your list. Notice how you feel as you add to your list.

Mark 12:28-34 Concerning the Old Mosaic Covenant, Jewish tradition puts the total number of commandments at 613. 248 positive commandments to DO, and 365 negative commandments NOT to do. Although various Rabbinic scholars have sought to compile a list of these commands, there have been slight disagreements on their precise number due to technicalities. When asked by a Scribe, which is the greatest commandment, our Lord did not begin with "do this and don't do that", but on the contrary, He proceeded to give the Shema. “Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord”. Having established the unity of God, what is to be our reasonable response to the worship of this One, True, Supreme Being? “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:29-31).

According to ScribeAmerica, 'A Medical Scribe is essentially a personal assistant to the physician; performing documentation in the EHR, gathering information for the patient's visit, and partnering with the physician to deliver the pinnacle of efficient patient care.' By The DocPreneur Leadership Podcast & Concierge Medicine Today Great Concierge Doctors learn to focus daily, on only doing what only they can do. And, they've empowered those they work with to do the same. Today we want to talk about your strengths and weaknesses as a Physician-leader. More importantly, why delegating your weakness and empowering your team to do what they are good at allows you to focus on precisely what you are good at. Case in point. The Medical Scribe. What is a Medical Scribe? According to ScribeAmerica, 'A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a physician's job has been focusing solely on direct patient contact and care. However, the advent of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) created an overload of documentation and clerical responsibilities that slows physicians down and pulls them away from actual patient care. To relieve the documentation overload, physicians across the country are turning to Medical Scribe services.'

This is Zack Fuss, an investor at Irenic Capital Management. Today we're breaking down the world's largest luxury business, LVMH. The LVMH story is deeply reflective of the vision of its 73 year-old founder and architect, Bernard Arnault. Today, the business generates €75 billion in sales across its 75 brands and 3 sector focuses. With a market cap of €350 billion, LVMH is not only the largest luxury business in the world but one of the largest businesses in the entire world. To break down LVMH, I'm joined by Christian Billinger, the chairman of Billinger Förvaltnings. We discuss the paradox between scarcity and scale in the luxury industry, analyze some of the company's high profile acquisitions, and delve into the history of this conglomerate's famous founder.

"Spending time alone helps us silence those external influences and get better at distinguishing between all the outside noise and our inner voice. In turn, you can get clearer and clearer on knowing what you really want." What is it like to walk the path of curiously discovering who we are? This episode is inspired by this cool quote from the leadership coach and bestselling author, Robin Sharma."The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, talents, your dreams is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal." Tune in now to discover how you can know yourself through Sharma's three suggested steps: Be comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal. In this week's episode, we explore: Why feeling comfortable with yourself expands your capacity to hold and accept more of who you are. Dialling down the all-consuming external noise to reclaim space in our heads.Building awareness of the factors that shape our decision-making. The bubbling up that happens when we sit in silence.Why this distractible age keeps us stuck in surface-level thinking.. "The more we can hear our true self, the more we can make decisions that are aligned with what's going to make us happy." The link between silence and surfacing our individual wisdom. Journaling as a side-kick for maximising alone time. When you make your thoughts tangible, you reflect YOU back at you. How loving scrutiny is a gateway to deeper insight. Managing our expectations around journaling. And more... Journaling is a powerful tool for knowing who we are. It's an important journey. The more we know who we are, the more we can shape and shift our lives into the direction that can bring us the most joy, fulfillment, and connection with our best selves.

This is Matt Reustle and today we are breaking down DuPont. We admire leaders that are in the trenches with their team members; never above any task and willing to share in risks. But, wow, did the Dupont family set a standard in that category. Whether it was Pierre Samuel Du Pont's 1818 death fighting a fire at their powder mill, Alexis Du Pont's 1857 death in an explosion at a powder yard, or Lammot Du Pont's famous 1884 death in an explosion while experimenting with nitroglycerines. The Du Pont family pushed the limits. In the 1900s the company evolved away from their roots in gunpowder and dynamite and it's hard to find an industry they haven't touched since then. To break down DuPont, we are joined by Seth Goldstein from Morningstar. Seth covers what separates commodity chemicals from specialty chemicals, we get some quick chemistry lessons on what's happening to create these well-known products like Nylon and Tyvek, and why after all of the years as a behemoth in the industry, DuPont has "unbundled" into several independent companies.

Allain Roy joins Scott Burnside and Mike McKenna on the finale of The Suitcase and The Scribe live from the Kelowna airport. Roy is wrapping up his agency camps in the beautiful Okanogan town after starting in New Brunswick earlier in the summer. Roy first spoke about the market this season and its uniqueness. He then discussed the most recent deal with Jonas Siegenthaler in New Jersey. Siegenthaler isn't the only player Roy works with on the Devils. He spoke about his other client Nico Hischier and how his new deal in New Jersey came about. After the interview, Mike and Scott dove into what's been happening around the NHL and what hasn't been happening. The New York Islanders have done nothing so far this summer. Mike gives a prediction on what could still happen on Long Island. On the flip side, they spoke about the sneaky good summer the Pittsburgh Penguins have had. Not only did they bring back Kris Letang and Geno Malkin, but they found a way to move Michael Matheson's contract and Jon Marino to bring in Jeff Petry and Ty Smith. Scott and Mike discussed the situation with Hockey Canada to close the show. Scott has some great work over on DailyFaceoff.com about everything happening.

Whether you have already written a book and don't know how to break into the publishing world, or still have a book inside you and don't want to go to a surgeon to have it surgically removed, this episode is for you. Meet Miles Rote, Author Strategist at Scribe Media. Miles, through Scribe Media, helps entrepreneurs, executives and experts write, publish and market their books. In this episode, host, CEO (and Author!) Priscilla McKinney and Miles discuss the obstacles facing would-be authors on their path to publishing. According to Miles, one of the biggest misconceptions about putting a book into the world is based on outdated modes of creation and distribution. “I think often when we think about the publishing world, we've done it through the lens of how it was always done in the past, through traditional publishing. All of that has changed.” In that past paradigm, the feat of producing the actual material for the book, either by writing or hiring a ghostwriter was an already laborious step, followed by the even-more daunting prospect of pitching to publishers for a slim chance of acceptance. This paradigm, according to Rote, is over. Scribe's writing methodology is based on a process of interviews that removes the writing/ghostwriting tradeoff barrier. Their publication ethos is based on the idea that the work itself can leverage platform growth, allowing authors to retain their humanity and not be supplanted by alternatives of themselves as potential earning figures. They also discuss the catharsis of writing, retention of ownership and royalties, and how the promotion of books is a forever thing. Miles is also an author, and his book “Personal Undevelopment” is scheduled to drop in 2023. It centers on the topic of identity and perception, and encourages people to rewrite themselves using “undevelopment” and “non-self help.” Essentially, when it comes to the topic of uncovering the ingredients that make up the self, Miles Rote the book.

This is Matt Reustle and today we are breaking down the financial institution known as Charles Schwab. Schwab is a financial behemoth. They report over $8 trillion in assets under custody and a market cap scratching $120 billion but I think the most fascinating part about this breakdown is the strategic pivot taken by Schwab. While the online brokerage market has been decimated in recent years from fee compression, Schwab has been pivoting their business model to that of a traditional bank. Now what does that mean? Today, Schwab makes the majority of their money earning interest on customer cash deposits. To break down Schwab, I am joined by Holland Advisors' Founder and Portfolio Manager, Andrew Hollingworth. Andrew has written extensively on Schwab, which we link to in our show notes. We cover what it means to operate as a bank vs online broker, how Charles Schwab himself grew this business out of a newsletter, and what's on the horizon for Schwab in the future. We hope you enjoy this breakdown of Charles Schwab.

In the entertainment world, someone who can sing, dance, and act is referred to as a “triple threat.” Scribes were the triple threats of Bible times. They were artists, writers, historians, and archivists. They were a bit of everything under the sun - polymaths in the truest sense of the word.That's why I love that my guest on the Thriving Christian Artist podcast, Theresa Harvard Johnson, is a triple threat for sure!Theresa doesn't fit neatly into one box or label - she's not a writer OR an artist OR a historian. She's all of the above! All of the roles of a traditional scribe are within Theresa, and they are all a part of her life every day. In this episode of the Thriving Christian Artist, you're going to hear about all the ways Theresa is sharing her scribal gifts with the world - teaching, mentoring, illustrating, writing and performing poetry, spoken word pieces, and more. She just loves using her creativity, being around other creatives, and bringing her guidance to the creative community. If you feel like you're being called to use your gifts in a million different ways at once, listen to Theresa. She'll show you how it's done.

What's poppin' con-gregation? We got Priscilla Davies joining us to discuss Elisabeth Finch, a former TV script writer who allegedly lied about her health status and used other people's trauma to write story lines in Grey's Anatomy. Plus, a retired Atlanta Police Sargent says that a con man used his business, to defraud a DeKalb County church out of tens of thousands of dollars. Stay Schemin'!

If Jennifer Smith is right, the way anyone shares how-to knowledge is about to change forever. A former VC and McKinsey consultant turned accidental CEO, she interviewed more than 1,200 business leaders on a quest to understand everything there is to know about processes, best practices, and productivity. Now with her startup Scribe, she's empowering people to own their processes by building the world's first operating system for know-how. For as long as she can remember, Jennifer has been fixated on finding better, faster ways to get work done. That obsession led her to a career in consulting at McKinsey, where she spent seven years getting paid to uncover the secrets and shortcuts behind companies' highest-performing employees. From there she moved to Silicon Valley VC firm Greylock, picking the brains of over a thousand CIOs, CDOs, and CXOs in an effort to understand their biggest operational pain points.She was shocked to find that despite advances in technology, not much had changed since her early days at McKinsey — to get a true picture of their operational best practices, companies still had to hire a high-priced consultant to look over the shoulder of some overstressed employee. So she teamed up with a former Google engineer and quietly set about building a tool that could automatically capture how employees work, allowing organizations to finally understand, document, and optimize how work gets done.Growing by word-of-mouth only, Scribe has already become a hit at tens of thousands of organizations from tech startup unicorns to Fortune 500 companies. And with over $30M in funding from some of Silicon Valley's most prescient VC's, you can be sure the knowledge sharing revolution they've started is just beginning. Episode Summary -Do you spend your time being busy, yet end up having an unproductive day?Do you ever feel like your to-do lists are getting longer daily, and you have no clue how to sort them out?
