Studios Cover Price: $19.99 Release Date: October 27, 2021 In 1861, America is at a crossroads. Abraham Lincoln, the man tasked with healing the nation, and his family are the targets of a conspiracy to assassinate them. Their safety – and the future of the American experiment – hinges on the success of a new kind of lawman, known by a word still novel in the culture: detective. But there was only one who would prove to be up to the task—an individual whose extraordinary cleverness and resourcefulness would alter the course of history from deep within the shadows of domestic spycraft. Her name was Kate Warne. This is the story of America's first female detective, a trailblazing working woman trying to make a living and do some good in a tumultuous, sexist age, and whose mysterious life and tall tale exploits are truly the stuff of legend.

Tune in now and don't forget to sign up for www.solciety.co! Speaker 1 (00:03):Welcome to the Solarpreneur podcast, where we teach you to take your solar business to the next level. My name is Taylor Armstrong and I went from $50 in my bank account and struggling for groceries to closing 150 deals in a year and cracking the code on why sales reps fail. I teach you to avoid the mistakes I made and bringing the top solar dogs, the industry to let you in on the secrets of generating more leads, falling up like a pro and closing more deals. What is a Solarpreneur you might ask a Solarpreneur is a new breed of solar pro that is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve mastery and you are about to become one.Speaker 2 (00:42):What's up Solarpreneurs Taylor Armstrong. Back with another episode here in the studio, hope you're doing well. And as always, we're doing these podcasts to help you close more deals, generate more leads and referrals, and hopefully have a much better time in the solar industry. Hopefully we can achieve that for you. So today we're going to get into an episode. I just got back from an event it's called, uh, driven. Um, if you're following me on social media, maybe saw me post about it by great Amanda. So I'm going to recap a few things from that event. Thought there was a lot of speakers that can apply directly to you. Uh, you know, the solar industry and some good takeaways. I got to someone to give you a little recap on a few takeaways. I got that I, I think will benefit everyone listening to this podcast today.Speaker 2 (01:35):Um, before we get into that, we are, uh, approaching how we in here. It is October at the time of this recording. And just remember with October, you are out there and trick or treating for free money. If you're knocking doors and whatever you're doing, really, if you are sending out online ads, if you're getting leads, remember it's just trick or treating, you know, you're just trick or treating out there. So that's the little tip of this month. Make sure you come across with that trick treating mindset, any door you knock thing. All right, I'm going to get my candy today. I'm going to get my dough today. And that's the mindset you got to have. We've had some incredible guests on just got done actually with a podcast. Um, you're going to hear about as soon don't want to spill the beans on it quite yet, but uh, this dude I think set the industry record for most deals closed in a month.Speaker 2 (02:29):He's he coming up on bat here in a couple of weeks as podcasts will drop. So stay tuned for that, but um, just great takeaways I've gotten and it's to have the extreme confidence that you're going to close. Any deal that you walk up to you with, you're going to book any appointment that you S um, you know, any door you knock, you're going to book an appointment with them. Really that's the big key here is people have that extreme confidence. Hey, Andy, I always think of this job like a sport, cause really it's not that much different. The great people in sports have extreme confidence that they're the best that they're achieving. The greatest things that they're the goats. And guess what the great people in the solar industry, they have that exact same mindset. They think they're the best and that's why they're having an extreme success.Speaker 2 (03:18):So to remember that just fresh on my mind as I get out of this podcast interview. So let's jump into this event, takeaway that I had and the main takeaways I'm going to given you are from Andy Frisella okay. If you haven't listened to my podcast on 75 hard, that was few months ago. Go check that out. And I would invite all of our listeners to go try 75 hard. If you haven't, it's going to get your brain on a different level, as far as thinking and breaking past limitations. So Andy Frisella, if you don't know him, just give a little background. He started a supplement company called first forum. That's formed with P H O R M and now he speaks on just kind of like politics. He's not like a politician like speak or whatever, but he just, um, believe deeply that our country's heading in the wrong directions.Speaker 2 (04:08):So that's what his podcast is focused on. Now it's called real AEF. So another highly recommended podcast, but he just has that hustle mindset. And he's, you know, tons of people listens. I think he has like the top business podcast. It's been the top business podcasts for years and he has just a mindset that I think can apply to our industry, um, and sells directly. He's been at for a long time. So he's one of the speakers I liked. This event is called driven. It's put on by Albert [inaudible] and for the event, review is a great event. The speakers world was probably one of the best speakers lineup I have ever seen at an event. Um, Albert, I will say, I'm not a huge fan of, uh, Albert Sophie's listening to this, then I apologize, but, um, didn't love his speaking, but he did bring a lot of Latino audience to the event.Speaker 2 (05:02):He's a Mexican and, and that was a big focus of his talk is that he had success being a Mexican and I'm like, dude, anyone can have success. It doesn't matter what race you are. I know there's limitations. But, um, anyways, that overall was a great event. And as always, always be looking for ways you can level up events, I think are one of the best ways is networking with other people and then learning from amazing speakers like this. So I want to jump into a few of these takeaways. You're going to be a quicker episode, but Andy Frisella, he just talked on basically that mindset. You need to have to push past your limitations and he gave five tips. I'm going to be given examples that we can use in the solar industry on this podcast today. And then just think about how can you apply these things in your life, in all areas, because what he talked about, it applies to everything.Speaker 2 (05:55):And that's why when we highlighting Frisella in specific, um, just because I thought it's most applicable and most takeaways I got that I can go do these things in change my results today, especially when it comes to solar sales. And then number two, cause he is actually, um, I guess I shouldn't say this, um, prematurely, but if he is hopefully coming on the podcast soon, so stay tuned for that. And um, that's line work, working out the details. So don't quote me on it yet, but I got a verbal confirmation. Hey Andy, for sale, it's going to be sick. Okay. So the first takeaway and first point he made is make sure you call your mind to your purpose, make sure you know where you want to go. And this mistake I realize I've been making right now, I've got a lot going on. I've got the podcasts, we're launching our society training platform.Speaker 2 (06:49):We're making some huge changes to that coming up very soon. So a lot of work with that. And then I realized that I lose. I've lost focus on really how many deals do I want to be closing a month? What's my purpose. Hey, what, what do I want to be doing with the money I'm making in solar? And one of my goals, favorite month, I've lost purpose. And I've lost really sight on the clarity that I used to have in solar. So I want to remind, especially the people that have been in solar for a while, make sure that you call your mind your purpose. Make sure you remember what, what's my crystal clear goal. What do I want to do with the money I'm making? And um, just remind yourself why you're doing it. Vision boards are a great way to do that. We talked about it before, but put your goal on your mirror, put it somewhere you can see and then remind yourself of that.Speaker 2 (07:41):Okay? Cause I go month after month, I've been in this industry, well almost six years now. And at this point, sometimes it gets easy for me. Am I okay? I'm just going to close. I'm just going to go for a couple of deals this week, where the guys that are having extreme success, they know, okay, this month I'm going to close 15 deals and here's what I'm going to do with that money I'm making, here's the investment I'm going to make. Make sure you have that type of clarity. And then number two, Andy talked about make up your mind that rules are set in stone. So he's in me. What does he mean by this? Basically just doing the hard things, even when you don't want to do them so we can apply this, especially when it comes to solar. Um, if we're out there on the doors knocking doors for trying to get in a specific amount of duels for trying to hit a specific amount of hours, what's the minimum.Speaker 2 (08:33):What's the minimum thing that you're going to let that you're going to do this today. Right? How many hours are you going to work minimum? So make sure you have, as a rule, that's set in stone for me, we recently did. We're going to knock, um, eat no matter how many deals we have that day, we recently started talking about at our company, okay, we're going to 15 doors minimum. Even if we have, I don't know, five, six deals that day five, six appointments. We're still going to go out and we're going to hit our 15 doors. Okay. So something like that. What's your non-negotiable what thing are you going to do? No matter what's maybe it's, you're going to follow up with five people no matter what every day. So set something in stone and make sure you do it in Andy. What I thought was really cool.Speaker 2 (09:21):He talked about when we start to compromise, it leads to complacency and then that complacency, it will lead to lack of confidence, which will eventually lead to quitting. And as he said that, I'm like, well, that is why a lot of people have quit in solar because they start compromise. They start compromising the little things that they were supposed to do that day. And then what does that do? Leads the complacency. Ah, I didn't hit, I didn't hit my 15 doors today. Um, yeah, I, I don't have to do that every day. I'll just do it when I'm feeling like it. Then that leads to the lack of confidence. And most people quit after that. Okay. If they don't quit, they're going to start making way less money and selling themselves short. So that was the second point. And then number three, he talked about, get your mind clear on the specific critical tasks that are essential for you.Speaker 2 (10:10):And if anyone follows Andy Frisella, he has something, he calls a powerless. I know he has like a planner. You can go buy a new this, but it was funny. He was talking about his planner. He's like, guys, I don't even have this planner to myself. To be honest, he doesn't even have his own product. He's like, you can do this on a piece of paper in a notebook. And his thing is, write down five critical tasks that must be done to consider your day a win. So I thought that's a great idea for people that maybe you've gotten some bad habits. Maybe you're not clear on what you need to do, do this. And your daily planning, try it, pick out the five things you need to do to consider that data win and all he does at the end of the day, he puts a w next to it.Speaker 2 (10:53):If he got it done, he puts an L next to it. If he lost, if you didn't get it done. And then once you execute a specific task for 21 days, you take it off your list. And at that point, hopefully it's a habit, right? If you miss three days of that thing of that thing, that's helping you win the day. Then that task must go back on the list. So for our Solarpreneurs, think about what five things do you need to do today? What are your five critical tasks? Maybe two, you need to knock the 15 doors. Like I was saying to maybe it's you need to make, um, knocks X amount of doors or talk to X amount of homeowners or get an X amount of appointments. If some of these things, obviously you can control more than others, but think about five things that you can control, the hours you work, the, uh, contacts you make the follow-ups you do.Speaker 2 (11:45):These are all things you can control. So what are things like that? And also, you know, just things that are helping you in your, in your, what are five things you can put on the list and then start to do that. And then you're going to see very clearly if you're winning or losing. So I thought that was a great thing. Something I'm going to start implementing right away. Then number four, he said, intentionally, focus your mind on what you will gain, not what you're giving up. This is a great tip. Just in general, anything you're trying to achieve. If you focus on the things you're giving up, it's gonna make it way harder to have success. He gave the example of like a diet, right? If you focus on, oh, I'm giving up my Twinkies, I'm giving up my Krispy Kreme donuts. I'm giving up my, uh, pizza hut.Speaker 2 (12:30):Like all these things. If you focus on that piece of it, it's gonna make it way harder to have success because your mind is so focused on your mind is gonna want whatever you're thinking about. Right? So if you're thinking about all that junk food, it's going to make it way harder to have success in whatever diet you're trying to be a part of. So that's a good example, but also it applies to sales, right? Um, if I'm out there knocking doors and I have fallen, I know cause I've fallen in this chap. Um, a lot myself is I'm focusing on, oh, I gotta go out and work. If I'm focusing on, oh, I need to knock five hours today. Um, this is going to, it's going to be hot out there. It's going to suck. My legs are going to be tired. All these things, the more attention you give them, the more it gets in your brain.Speaker 2 (13:15):That's no different whether you apply it to a diet, whether you play it to sales, whether you apply it, apply it to closing deals, whatever your mind thinks about that's what's going to happen, right. Law of attraction right there. So, um, consider that as you're outworking today, focus on the good things, right? Oh, I'm going to talk to 20 homeowners out here. That's all I need to do for me. That's a lot easier than I'm going to go out and knock four hours can be hot skin. My legs are going to be tired. Repeat at yourself. This is what affirmations are for. Hey I'm I follow a river Skinner guests we had on the podcast, but he puts out a great pod podcast and great content. He gives, he talks about affirmations or something that helps them all the time. As y'all, as he's out closing deals, he's on the doors.Speaker 2 (14:02):I love myself. I love myself. I love myself. I'm the greatest salesman in the world. All these things. You're going to repeat it verbally. And it's training your mind to think about those things rather than the negatives, right? So that's how you do it. And that's a great key to success as you're out there closing soul retails. And the last point before we wrap up is mentally transform negative emotions into triggers. Hey, and a great book. I would recommend, I think I've mentioned it before, but as the power of habit by Charles Duhigg, he talks about these triggers. Okay. So think about how you can transform the negative into a trigger for the positive. A N Andy said, emotions can't force you to do anything, understand, understand that your emotions are commentators, not commanders. Okay? So even if you feel depressed, overwhelmed, use those as triggers to go out and work harder.Speaker 2 (14:56):And Andy talked about that's how he's had success in all his businesses. Any time he calls him test days, anytime where he felt terrible, he didn't want to go work. He didn't want to push that day. Old days. He pushed even harder because he knew if he could train his brain to push, even when he felt terrible and didn't want to do anything that day, then it's going to make it that much easier when he did feel decent. So go and do it have a test day. We're all going to feel like not knocking doors, where I'm going to feel like not going to that next deal. We're going to feel like we suck, but if we can push past it and do it anyways, that's going to train our brain brain to have success and execute in spite of the negative day. And then go read that book power habits.Speaker 2 (15:41):It's a, if you want to get more in depth on it, Charles, do he, he talks about all the triggers and in our habits and really ways we can set ourselves up for things to be a trigger instead of a hindrance. So that those are some key takeaways. I hope you enjoy those. So I was, um, maybe a little bit over the, all over the place with my notes here, but I thought he had some super powerful things. We can start applying today in the solar industry, my Solarpreneurs. Let me know if you have anything else that helps you on those tough days. Look forward to connecting with you more.

TRG has been making content geared around the focus of discussing video games, and things in the video game world, from a Christian perspective. It's been an incredible journey up to this point.

Logan gets into Henry Cloud's "Boundaries" as he goes through a season of healing. Topic (39:04) Nearly 7 years of podcast episodes that are chock full of memories. The guys discuss how they came across TRG, how it's changed, and the future ahead.

Let's do this. The Cult of Hockey podcast by the Faithful and for the Faithful. With Kurt Leavins and David Staples tonight. It wasn't a great game, in case you missed it due to website troubles of the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers failed to host the game due to technical difficulties. I was fortunate that I got it on an NBC affiliate on my Telus package. The one standout was Edmonton's goalie Stuart Skinner, who looked as sharp in net as I've seen him as a pro. It was a shame he missed out on a shut-out. Edmonton lost in OT after a lame penalty call against Kailer Yamamoto led to a Seattle power play.

We got a treat for ya. Episode one OG guest; filmmaker, actor, musician and producer Skinner Myers is back and he's anything but asleep. Oh and by the way, he can now add "professor" to his list of achievements as he's now teaching cinema studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Skinner is currently touring the film festival circuit with his new film "The Sleeping Negro." We're not going to bother describing the plot nor the process of making "The Sleeping Negro" because it won't come close to hearing Skinner tell it... Look there's no other way to say this so we'll just cut to the chase... Skinner is a genius. His talents are prodigious. His work is muscular and merciless. Skinner doesn't look to please. He looks to cajole, challenge and activate his audiences. His ambition is simply to redefine the language of black filmmaking. To quote Skinner: "I want to use my cinema as a weapon." ...Indeed. Please listen and be activated. #TheDopeShit Follow us on Instagram and Twitter @RadioZamunda #iTunes #Googleplay #Stitcher #Spotify Website for Sleeping Negro film: www.thesleepingnegro.com Skinners Website: www.skinnermyers.com Music by: “Steve Biko (Stir it up)” - A Tribe Called Quest “St. Louise is Listening” - Soul Coughing “Loyalty (Feat.

Dr. Jim Moore returns to Behavioral Observations in this session. And I'm so thankful he had the time to chat, because this episode is jam-packed with great information for practitioners at all experience levels. We spent a few minutes catching the audience up on some of the changes in Jim's life since his last appearance on the show. In particular, we discuss his new job as Chief Clinical Officer of Apollo Behavior and his move to the Atlanta area. Afterwards, we managed to touch on several important issues in clinical practice, including the following: Our differing (initially) views on what it means to engage in scientific behavior... i.e., who is and is not a scientist. How identifying research questions differs in academia and practice. Solving behavior problems by examining overly strict rule adherence (and what to do about it). What to pay attention to when interviewing caregivers about problem behavior. How to trouble shoot stalled learner progress. Using Socratic questioning during clinical supervision (if you listen to any part of this episode, listen to this one!). A preview of what sounds like an incredibly interesting talk at the upcoming Stone Soup Conference (and if you're interested in attending this incredibly affordable and informative event, use the code PODCAST to save even more at checkout). Jim's point of view on the varying functional analysis practices that are being discussed in the literature. We also recorded about 20 or so minutes of bonus content, which is available to Patreon subscribers (check out this link to learn more). In this segment of the show, Jim went into some detail regarding his ups and downs with his health and fitness, and how he's trying to get back on track, what it's like to be a Saints fan in the Atlanta Metro area, the parallels between good coaching and good leadership, and lots more. Lastly, Jim was too gracious to shamelessly plug his practice group, but if the type of practice he describes interests you, hit him up on LinkedIn, or elsewhere on social media, as he's pretty easy to find. Here are links to some resources we discussed: Jim's Research Gate page (lots of cool stuff!). Hayes, et al., 1986. Instructions, Multiple Schedules, and Extinction: Distinguishing rule-governed from scheduled-controlled behavior. Hayes, et al., 1986a. Rule-governed behavior and sensitivity to changing consequences of responding. Skinner's Six Attitudes of Science Quizlet (credit: Hillary Robbins). The Seven Steps to Instructional Control. Quote #1: The differences between applied and basic research are not differences between that which “discovers” and that which merely “applies.” Both endeavors ask what controls the behavior under study Baer, Wolf, & Risley (1968) Quote #2: An applied behavior analysis will make obvious the importance of the behavior changed, its quantitative characteristics, the experimental manipulations which analyze with clarity what was responsible for the change, the technologically exact description of all procedures contributing to that change, the effectiveness of those procedures in making sufficient change for value, and generality of that change Baer, Wolf, & Risley (1968) Quote #3: Applied research is designed to solve practical problems of the modern world, rather than to acquire knowledge for knowledge's sake. One might say that the goal of the applied scientist is to improve the human condition.

Whether you are struggling with hormone imbalances (PMS, PCOS, menstrual cramps, fertility issues, low thyroid function), infections (EBV, HPV, recurrent UTIs, vaginitis, etc), autoimmunity, anxiety, migraines, or joint pain…and even if you don't have any digestive symptoms…it's important to start by healing your gut. Why? Because your digestion is where you digest your food and absorb nutrients from your food. Those nutrients then go on to help make hormones, neurotransmitters, and to support immune function. Your digestion is also where your gut bacteria – which outnumber the human cells in your body – do important things like make nutrients and neurotransmitters, detoxify hormones, and support healthy immune function. In this episode, I talk with Dr. Destia Skinner [IG @drskinnersonline], Naturopathic Doctor and my classmate at Bastyr University in the 90's, about: -How to know if your gut needs attention -Where to begin with supporting digestion -Simple things you can do right now to help your gut -What causes leaky gut -How leaky gut can cause symptoms anywhere in the body (or brain) -What is the microbiome -How does it get thrown off track -How to feed, and not over-feed, your gut bacteria We even had a chance to talk about fecal transplants and helminthic therapy as researched methods for re-establishing a health gut biome and digestion. It can be confusing and overwhelming to attempt to heal your gut on your own. There is so much contradictory information on the internet and varying approaches from different practitioner, that it can seem like you are spinning your wheels. Dr. Destia and I are here to help you solve your digestive distress, whether you knew it was an issue or not, including with the new online course she created with her husband (and also my classmate in ND school), Dr. Bryan Skinner. Find it as www.RevolutionaryGut.com.

I teach you to avoid the mistakes I made and bringing the top solar dogs, the industry to let you in on the secrets of generating more leads, falling up like a pro and closing more deals. What is a Solarpreneur you might ask a Solarpreneur is a new breed of solar pro that is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve mastery and you are about to become one.Speaker 2 (00:41):What's going on Solarpreneurs. I am stoked today. We got an exciting episode because we got someone that everyone should know if you've been endorsed it or sells, or just like funny memes, then you definitely know this guy. We've got the master Miemer on the interwebs himself. Mr. Rick Martinez, Rick. Thanks for finally hopping on the show with us. My man. Thank you,Speaker 3 (01:04):Taylor. Appreciate appreciate it, man. It took us a while, but we, uh, we're we're we're finally doing it.Speaker 2 (01:10):Yeah, I know. I was just telling Rick before the show, him and Tony Robbins have been the two hardest guys to get on the podcasts. Haven't quite got Tony Robbins on yet, but, but, But, uh, Rick took a while to cause he's a busy guy and he's all over the place. And we'll talk about that. But, uh, no, we're just in key west Florida hanging out at the knock event and we're planning on to do a show there, but, um, Rick, he was kind of helping out things got busy and kind of make it happen.

So Rick, do you want to, I don't know, maybe introduce how you got into door to door and how you first started making your memes. I guess a little background on him real quick. He runs the main page, no listing bra, which is like, you know, the biggest, I don't know, door to door entertainment page. I would say hands down, it's been entertaining door to door sales reps for years and years now, everyone loves them and he's been successful in pest control, uh, solar. And that's actually how we first met is because we brought both sold for a company called new power here in Southern California back in the day. So, uh, just a little introduction for you, Rick, but yeah. Do you want to, I don't know, go a little more in depth, how you got in the front door to door first and um, started up your meme page, all that good stuff. Yeah.Speaker 3 (02:51):Yeah, of course. So I started in door to door back in 2014. Um, six months after I got home from my LDS mission. Um, my buddy who's like, dude, you do so well at this. You do so well at this, but I just, I was hesitant. So I spent six months working as a painter's assistant at an auto body shop working 40, 50, even 60 hours some weeks. And I finally gave in, went out on the Saturdays, set a deal. And then that later that week it closed. And I was told that I was going to make like $1,400 off of that one deal. And I was like, you're kidding me. And they're like, yeah, I'm like, what the, so the next Saturday I go out and I booked three more. They all closed. And I think like two weeks later I'm like, yeah, I'm, I'm quitting my day job.Speaker 3 (03:42):And I'm doing solar full-time. So from 2014, up until like 2017ish, I was with a company called new power. Built, help them build that thing out quite a bit. That's where Armstrong and I had met. And then I took a little bit of a break. Um, tried out pest control with active. And then I was selling with Aaptiv in 2018. When I started the no soliciting bromine page, I was just going through a lot of anxiety, some depression at the time. Um, and my way to cope with me, it was so nice. I found a page called summer sales fails and I thought to myself, I can make way better memes and way better content. So that's what I started doing. And since then, yeah, it's taken three years for the page to take off. But now, um, I don't think I can go into any sales team without somebody knowing me. I can't fly into Utah or walk around Provo without someone knowing who I am, which is actually kind of insane.Speaker 2 (04:44):Yeah, no, everyone knows. And if you go to like door to door con or something with this guy, you feel like he's the Wolf of wall street in there. You just got, you know, ladies surrounding them, just crowds of people, just like no, this listing bruh. So it's a pretty surreal experience. And uh, I always joke just because me and Rick we've found a lot of events together over the years. And it used to be where we were like hanging out on equal footing at these events. But, but now he gets lost in the crowd pretty quick, because I feel like people are kind of walking around, you know, ask him for autographs and all that stuff. So I felt glad to know Rick before he was, you know, super famous and everyone knew him, but no you've had a ton of success now. And isn't it funny that back in the day we were so stoked or we're making like a thousand bucks on a solar deal and now it's like making that.Speaker 3 (05:39):Yeah. I remember being pumped about making 400 bucks a kilowatt Gosh, 400 bucks as a kilowatt, as a closer selling a 21 cent PPA, man.Speaker 2 (05:57):I knowSpeaker 3 (05:57):That's crazy because when you're comparing that to pest control, it's like, you know, crazy money, like no way you make over a thousand, because that was my background. I came from pest control and you're making, you know, maybe, I don't know, a couple hundred bucks. I know you guys make an R or make a more impasse now, too. But, but yeah, that's pretty crazy how far things have come. So tell me though, why did you decide to, uh, kind of, I know you've been in pest now. You've been doing now you're back doing a little bit of solar, but yeah. Why did you decide to try out pests coming from a solar and you know, and so the F the first time I did it, honestly, I was sold on the location. My recruiter told me that we were going to long island, New York, and he sold me on the fact that like, dude, we're in long island, we can go to Manhattan.Speaker 3 (06:45):And I was like, okay, cool. Yeah. He offered me some ridiculous, like really good deal that at the time I was like, you know what I mean? This is fine. But my whole thing was, I just wanted to go to New York. Yeah. So I went and I did, well, I sold like a little over 150 with like a six 90 contract value. And I was like, and they're like, dude, that's so good. I'm like, really? So the whole time, like, yeah, like the sales were there, but I was there just to go to New York, bro. Like for me, going to New York was a dream. So yeah, I did that the next year I took off last year, I went back in, um, it's so pest control is such a fun sale, right? Imagine like setting, if you can get a really good area where you can set a crap tenant deals, that's like the equivalent of selling the pest control account. You can go in and just, I mean, what setting you clearly don't get paid for the sets. Um, but with pest control, it's like that simple, you go in, Hey, you got bugs. This is what we're doing. Oh, you're with someone else. This is why people have been switching over to us and you just close them, get them set up, get them serviced and you get paid. Okay.Speaker 2 (07:55):Yeah. Love it. No, it is a quick sell. Yeah. How have you seen some similarities since you switched, you know, back and forth now kind of from pests or solar, do you feel like there's been a lot of things that have helped you, that you've learned in pest that you've been able to like apply to solar now as youSpeaker 3 (08:10):Yeah. Big time. Yeah. The option close. So does the morning or afternoon work better for my, for my, uh, specialist to Papa. Okay. Nice. The option close. Uh, try and try and get them outside of the house. Take, take taking them to the meter. Um, this is one of the things that I learned from, uh, McCarthy that we did a long time ago was, uh, downloading the Sunseeker app and taking them around the house and showing them on the app on your iPad, where, where the sun hours are at and say, so this is more than likely where the panels would go and then just getting them to move around the house.Speaker 2 (08:49):Yeah. That's money. Yeah. That is a huge difference. And yeah, it's funny you say that because I'm actually working right now on here on Jason newbie, steam. A lot of our top guys came from pests and that's all they talk about dues. They're just pulling people out, out, off that door. They're pulling people, the meter to the backyard. And I feel like it's just location, but getting people on like a different, you know, kind of mental state, because as you know, behind the doors, people are a lot of times super reserved, super guarded. Like what are you doing here? When we can get them outside of their castle, there are they like, it's crazy how much they open up and you know, you try it, the exact same clothes. You maybe just try it at the door, it'll work just cause you're, you know, outside, uh, you know, on their porch or in a different location with them or inside the home. Yeah.Speaker 3 (09:39):And one of the things that I took from solar that I started applying my first summer and past was, um, trying to get inside the home. Now when I wasn't, when I was in long island, um, it would, it would rain a lot. I think that was the one thing that I didn't like about how much it rains. So I made it really simple. I'm like, cool. I just got to fill this out with you real quick. Is there a, is there a small corner of the kitchen table, like a borrower to fill this out and they would give me some resistance. I'd be like, do you want me to take my shoes off? If they said yes or no, I would either take my shoes off or not and walk in. Yeah. Maybe I'd be inside people's homes. I'd be at the kitchen table, sign, signing them up for best control and then just open up the conversation. And then they would more than likely give me referrals.Speaker 2 (10:23):Nice. Love that. Yeah. That's shaped from new power and they're drone on that. So many times it's like, they can't say no to letting you in. You're like, yeah. I asked you, do you want me to take my shoes off? I didn't ask you. I can't come in. Like just transitioned straight to that question. But now that's a fire question for our Solarpreneurs that are listening. Yeah. You need to be using questions like that. Super assumptive getting inside homes, which side of the house is your meter on? Um, cause at that point you're just being assumptive. You're not asking them yes or no. Like, do you want to do, it's not. I think that's been a one been a, one of the biggest keys for my success if I had had. And probably you do right. Rick and solar. Yeah. Yeah, definitely. So yeah. Love that. And no, I think there's a ton of things that apply in, I would say just like in the work ethic too. Cause I was out in an adjustment for you coming from solar where at new power, we are only doing like, I don't know, four or five hours maybe on the doors and pest control. They're like, all right, Rick, you got to come out. We're going from a 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM or whatever it was. Was that like an adjustment for you?Speaker 3 (11:35):Big time adjustment. I was like, dude, these guys are crazy. I can not do 12 hours on the doors, but I got used to it, bro. And then during, during competition do this, this, this is what these pest control companies do well is they, they get these kids so hyped up on competition that I remember my, the, the latest sale I ever made was in the, was in an Indian neighborhood because we knew the Indians were going to be up super late. And my last sale of the day I started, I knocked this guy's house at 1140 and I, and I left his house just a little after midnight. Wow.Speaker 2 (12:15):Crazy.Speaker 3 (12:17):And I had, I had never talked to this guy before I, I saw that the garage was open. People were in the garage talking, I go up and I'm like, Hey look like we're in the middle of a competition. And we are getting down to the wire, right? Like if we win, this is what we, when we do pass control, I'm going to take care of you. And then the haggling started. And I, and then I, I stopped them as low as I could so we can get enough points for the sale. I'm like, look, tell you what, this is, what I'll do. This is the best, the best I can do. And he took it.Speaker 2 (12:52):That's fricking awesome. Did it help? Did he pass for Indian? Did he see your darker skin? Oh, you're my brother. Yeah. A littleSpeaker 3 (13:00):Bit.Speaker 2 (13:03):Yeah. No, that's good. Yeah. If you can get those Indians, hopefully he gave you a referral chain. Do they give you like four referrals?Speaker 3 (13:09):I wish no. He told me. Yeah. I'll I'll I I'll refer you to everyone, everyone, anywhere for me and anybody, but that's fine because the only thing we needed, the only thing I needed was the sales so we can win. Yeah.Speaker 2 (13:21):That's good. I love that competition. Clothes helps a lot when people and see that you're bought into a competition and people just naturally want to help out. So I use that a lot in solar too.Speaker 3 (13:31):Do they happen so much? Like even this last year, like when I was going up in the masters, like the one-on-one I would tell people like, look, um, I don't know about you, but I, I hate losing. So tell you what I'm in the competition right now, me and one of the best guys in the company was my line. Um, and, and I would show them like I would pull up on my app and I'd show them the actual competition. Like, look, I do pass control. Right. I take care of the bugs. It's nothing crazy. If I can get you done while I'm out of here, this is what I'm willing to do. Yeah. I would show them like, I would show them like the regular price, regular price, what I would do. But then I would bring in McCarthy's model home clothes and be like, look, honestly, if I can just get you done as like a marketing home for me, this, this is what I'm willing to do. I'm willing to drop it instead of this, to this. The only thing I ask is that if you use social media, just give me a shout out on your Facebook or on next door. If you can give me a shout on the next door app, I will even do the first one for free. Nice. And then that way it gets me publicity out there. It gets people to know who I am and then some referrals would trickle in that way.Speaker 2 (14:41):Yeah. That's sweet. And then would you ever pull up to the next door? It'd be like, Hey, I'm the guy that they're posting about on the next door. Did they tell you is passing by?Speaker 3 (14:51):I would have her do it right then and there. Um, depending on the situation, sometimes I would have a technician in like literally in the area now with texts attack, I'd be like, Hey mark, I'm getting one down. I'm getting one right now. And I dropped my pen and then by the time I was signing docs, he was rolling up.Speaker 2 (15:08):Yeah. Wow. That's mySpeaker 3 (15:10):Dad, dude. It's money. It's money. And then from there I would have her posts on the next door app right then and there.Speaker 2 (15:17):Nice.Speaker 3 (15:19):But my squid you have, do you have, do you have your phone on you? Cool. Can you pull up the next door app? Okay. Um, do you mind if I just take over and I just type in the thing, put my number in and then I'd be like, cool. So you can post it. I'd just have her click post and there we go.Speaker 2 (15:35):Nice. No, that's yeah. That's insane. How good that stuff works. I had a guy on our team last week. He got like six deals in this, I think in one street or something just from doing that exact same thing. Just having people post on the neighborhood, Facebook group next door. And then just saying, Hey, I'm the solar guy out here that they've been posting about in the groups. Did you already see it? And then I think half the time they're like, oh yeah, we saw that. Yeah. Yeah. I guess they said, you're going to come by and it's like instant credibility, instant trust. It's basically wherever all at that point. And they were closing. Yep. So exactly. Yeah. That's something I've yeah. I haven't tried really trading the next door stuff, but yeah, I think, uh, for those that are listening, make sure you're utilizing the power of social media is, and you know, all the nextdoor stuff.Speaker 2 (16:22):Cause that's how people go from skeptical on the doors. Do you know, knowing you're going to be there and knowing you're going to come by. So that's good stuff, Rick. Exactly. Um, so yeah, something I did want to transition into though a little bit, I know you talked just how, um, you've gone through phases, you know, ups and downs. Like I'm sure a lot of us have, you've gone through like some depression. I know some, you know, mental side of things and that's, uh, the reason I want to touch on that super common in door to door. I know a lot of people struggle with, uh, the depression, the mental stuff that's going on in people's heads. Um, so what do you have some, uh, I don't know, advice for people that are struggling with those things or just like the mental aspect, things that have helped you to continue in this industry for what are you going on? Like seven, eight years now you've been doing all thisSpeaker 3 (17:12):Stuff. Yeah. I'm I'm I'm going on my seventh year. Wow.Speaker 2 (17:16):That's crazy.Speaker 3 (17:18):Um, I would say first and foremost, um, depression is real. Anxiety is real. So if it's really bad, then go get help. Okay. First and foremost, um, secondly, a lot of the time it's, it's situational anxiety and situational depression, meaning that it's, it's things that we've done to put us into this situation. You know, ultimately the, the most common thing is, is at, in the beginning, we start doing all the little things that brings us, brings us success. Once we have the success, we stopped doing the little things I got us to where we were at and we just expect to coast off of that confidence off of the skill set off of whatever it is that, that, that got us to that success. Um, I would say focus more on the action rather than focusing on the results. So many of us are fixated on, I need to make a sale today.Speaker 3 (18:10):I need to do this. I need to do that. And then they just, what do they do? They roll out of bed 20 minutes before the meeting, before the meeting or 20 minutes before they have to leave the correlation, the correlation, they're not getting any training. They're not reading, they're not studying. They just show up and expect things to happen. Right. Um, it's, it's, it just comes down to the actions, like focus on the little things like, you know, river Skinner. And I, we post every day about winning our mornings, um, rivers doing power hour. I do what I need to do. Um, ultimately if you can stack as many wins as you can, the success will come. So if you find yourself in a slump, one of the things that I've recently talked with, a lot of people is I've approached it in more of like a therapeutical manner, meaning that, okay, what happened for you to get into this slump?Speaker 3 (19:03):Know what, what may have caused it is a mental slump. Is it like in an emotional slump? Is it, what is it? You know what, first let's classify, what kind of slump it is for most people it's sales. Okay. That's understand. We're in the, we're in the last little bit of the summer. That's okay. People tend to, you know, work really hard in the beginning, but they can't maintain that. So what, what, what did you start dropping off last month? You stopped reading. You stopped ringing the training manual. Cool. We'll go back and start doing that. If you can, if you can figure out what caused the slump, then you know how to one prevent any future slumps, um, in the future. But you can go and fix the slump that you're currently in. Yeah. So go back and figure out what it is that may have caused it. Start working on that. Start working on a few other things, just, just, just comes down to work. I agree. Sometimes salespeople, we're, we're very egotistical, meaning that we have a lot of pride. Sometimes we just, you just got to swallow your pride and accept that, Hey, you've put yourself in this situation and now it's your turn to now it's on you to pull yourself out. Yeah,Speaker 2 (20:15):I like that. It's like what Taylor McCarthy always says first comes back, uh, was the first comes, the action then comes the motivation. Exactly. And uh, yeah, a lot of guys, they're just not doing enough of the action bottom line and expect and motivation to come first. So I think it's super helpful going and analyzing those things. Like most people have tasted some sort of success in door to door at this point. So this is actually like an exercise that I am having. One of my, uh, coaching students go through right now is just go write down all the things that you successful, all the things you did during the day, when you had a ton of success or during the week you had a ton of success. And most of the time it's completely different than the things they're doing right now. Like, like you said, they're not waking up at the same time.Speaker 2 (20:59):They're not going through a routine. They're just rolling out of bed, go into the correlation. So I think those are all super important things to go and just do an analysis of really, what are you doing now with your day? What are you doing with your routines? And chances are, you're probably doing different things. If you're not experiencing the success or experiencing the right mental state that you need to be. So, yeah. Um, I liked that though. Now I think, um, I wanted to ask you, cause like you're always traveling. You're always on the road and for me it's tough to like stay in the right mental state when I'm always a, you know, like traveling all over the place and like you're in a hotel room right here right now. So, um, do you feel like you've had to adjust like being on the road so much? I feel like this point you're like, you're like Mr. Circus, you're in so many different places. Like you're always adjusting to new environments, to new people and new places. So is that hard for you? Like traveling around so much or you just kind like,Speaker 3 (21:58):It's hard, it's hard. I mean, it's, it's hard on anybody. They just come down to just, I mean the best salespeople are those who are adaptable online. Um, it's almost like the sales rep that that's, oh, do you, do you, you sell more in like rich areas or poor or poor areas? My response is it doesn't matter where you put me on because I'm just going to go talk to people and I'm going to figure out how I need to adjust my presentation. So these people will buy. And that's what it is. It's just a Jessie and just like anything in life, I think even in sales, right, you have to have like a skeleton, like an outline of what you're going to do for me. It comes down to my mornings. It comes down to how I wind down at the end of the day. And a big factor is the people who are around me. So if I can get around like really, really good high-performing individuals, it makes it simpler on me to be able to adjust to this, to the market, to adjust to where I'm at, if I'm the high producer and I'm the guy that people are supposed to look up to, then it's a little bit harder. And I got to put in more work behind the scenes.Speaker 2 (23:10):Yeah, no doubt. And that's why it's, I mean, some people aren't as good as that. I know for me, sometimes it's tough to be that way too. Like the high producer and, um, be the best guy in everything. So for people that struggle, I mean, consider getting on a team where there are like high producers and, um, B Williams, because that starts to wear at you. I know there's times at new power G where maybe we didn't have as many guys and stuff. And then I knew going out in the car group that I was going to have to be the one to actually like, you know, jump out of that car and go sell that day. And, uh, that's fine. I did that for a long time, but then it starts to like wear on you if you're constantly having to be the one that has to get out and be the one to go hit that first door. So, um, just something to consider for guys who are struggling, get some people that you don't have to drag everywhere and consider getting around like higher level people, which I know your own high level people all the time.Speaker 3 (24:09):So, I mean, in that case, it makes it simpler. It makes it simpler for me to adjust. But dude, it's still hard. Like I've, I've been in every time zone this month.Speaker 2 (24:19):Wow.Speaker 3 (24:21):Like I didn't realize that last night or actually this morning at breakfast, I was talking to this girl and um, I remembered that I was doing a podcast with you and I'm like, shoot, I can't remember what time is that? And then she's like, how do you not remember me? Because he's in California and I'm here. And then we just started talking and then I told him again, I think I've been in every time zone this month. And just like her face was like, what? Like, how were you so functioning?Speaker 2 (24:50):I know, I don't know how you do it. I mean, I mean, Rick will go to events and you're up like helping people all night talking, getting back at three in the morning and then he's up at 6:00 AM for a workout. I'm like, dude, he's fricking nuts though. You're a different breed man, for sure. But, um, speaking of like events and stuff, Ricky, um, we've like, we're talking about, we've been to a lot of events. We go to these things. Uh, I think we both have that mindset of learning, which is awesome and trying to make connections with people. So how have you, I dunno, what's your reasoning for going to all these events and how do you feel like they've helped you in contributing to like upleveling and your success and everythingSpeaker 3 (25:34):It goes back to when you and I were both at new power. We, so I guess for example, let's take a step back. Um, John C. Maxwell in the, in the 21 laws of leadership talks about the law of the lid, right? Like your, your success will only be as high as your highest performer or as high as your, your leadership, your management will allow you to get we side. I mean, granted, we were trained by really good salespeople, but that's all we knew. Yeah. So when I left and when we both left and we started going to these events, we re, uh, for me, I think I realized that there's so much more I can learn out there. Yeah. And I'd be doing a disservice to myself if I just stuck with one form or one way of selling. Yeah.Speaker 2 (26:27):And now it's cool to see you're so like abundant, because I mean, on your page, you're always promoting different, people's like training programs and trying to help guys out and, um, you know, making connections with guys. That's another thing I wanted to ask you. Like, how have you been able to just, I don't know, bill all these connections because it's not just like, you've gone to the events and the courses, like everyone knows you, you can go up and talk to Taylor McCarthy. Obviously you guys are super tight and you're helping them promote. And, um, COVID Ivers all these guys. So how have you been able to like build these relationships with them? And, um, just kinda like, I don't know, put yourself out there on like the, not just, not just, uh, like the professional relationship, but you're like legit buddies with all of these dudes and like hanging out with them and stuff,Speaker 3 (27:13):I guess. So, so the, so the key to build relationships for me is the, it's the value that I bring right aside from like my page, the value that Rick brings to the marketplace. Right? Yeah. It's just about adding value. Um, luckily for me, the, the platform that I have allows me to bring exit existential amount of value. Yeah. Um, so yeah, with like Coda Ivers, Passy McCarthy, um, and even like recently, like Jake has, you know, like some of these people I've been connecting with, it's like, it's what, what can I do? Because ultimately you're right. And you, you mentioned this a little bit earlier that this abundance, um, mentality is, there is no one perfect training course. There is no one perfect way of selling. You need to take a little bit of everything from every one and apply it to mega you're out. Yeah. So whether it is, you know, society knock DocStar ODK, Spiller academy, I would say them all, like be, especially like, if you're in solar, here's your, here's my mindset behind them. It, this solar, solar is only going to be good for so long. Right. And recently I read a quote that says that if you're lazy and you know, working hard, it's because you're not grateful for the opportunity. Yeah. So how about us in five or 10 years down the road are going to look back and think, dude, I should have done more, man. I missed out I do it all the time. Cause we, we had, um, we had an option back in the day called green day. You you remember that?Speaker 2 (29:01):Uh, no, I don't actually, was that a new power?Speaker 3 (29:05):Was that new power? So I think so what it was was a super simple PPA. It was through CPN for like clean, clean power finance. It was like before Sunrun and Sunnova became super huge in the marketplace. Yeah. You can legit go in and sign them up. Same day within 20 minutes. OhSpeaker 2 (29:25):Man, that was before I was there.Speaker 3 (29:28):It was like 2015, I think 2015, 2016, somewhere around there. Anyways. Um, dude, like I kick myself in the foot so much because I saw a little pocket in Temecula where I did like three same days. Wow. And I called the good for like a week,Speaker 2 (29:50):But dude,Speaker 3 (29:51):Like, like looking back on it, like yeah. Why, why that's why I worked so hard bro. It's because I saw the oppor, I see the opportunity that I had. That was a lazy bastard. I settled for three same days and I'm like, nah, dude, I'm good at that. I made enough money to go Dick around for a little bit. You know?Speaker 2 (30:09):I know it's so easy to do that though. And like, I dunno, that's another thing to your point before. I think that's another reason why it's important to go to events and surround yourself by high level people. Because like where we used to think maybe three same days, it was like, unreal, good. Now we go to knock star event and Taylor McCarthy did five deals in a day, probably made, I don't know, 30, 40 grand or whatever in a day. So it's like getting around these higher level people you think you're doing good? Then it's like, go join some of these competitions, go join, knock star. Um, go get in some of these groups then you're really going to see guys who are doing insane amounts of deals. Yeah. This stuff blows my mind. Like going to the events. Where's your mind not blowing at some of these events, seeing the numbers, some of these guys ofSpeaker 3 (30:55):No doubt, no doubt, dude, dude, sometimes. And here's the crazy thing is you bring a McCarthy dude. Sometimes of McCarthy will text me when he's not being active on social media. He's like, bro, I just threw down four same days. I'm like, are you kidding me bro?Speaker 2 (31:10):It's no big deal.Speaker 3 (31:11):Yeah. Yeah. He just texted me and you know, he's like, bro, like I like went out and I did this. I tried out this new thing. I got four same days bro. I'm like, what, what?Speaker 2 (31:24):It's crazy.Speaker 3 (31:25):But it comes down to, this are going, going back to the training. I distinctly remember the same day or like the week that I got those three same days in Temecula. Um, we had just learned a new way of like trying to get inside the home and I did it. So the reason why I say buy up all of these training programs is because the reason sales reps become, I think stagnate is because they have nothing else to apply and they think that they know it all. Yeah. So if you take one thing from this course and you go into, you apply it today, as you do it and you see your work, it creates this level of excitement. Yeah, for sure. And you want to do it over and over and over again. Right. But that one thing is going to get boring. After a while the same way, like a kid gets bored with its toys, they go and they find a new toy.Speaker 3 (32:17):Right. So start, start learning different things to apply. But if you only have one, like your company training, how fast are you going to go through that? That, that training platform pretty fast. Right? And if that person is on can like, if that person's best month is like 20 deals in a month, then you're now limited to 20 deals in a month. Yeah. It makes it so much harder to get 20, 21 deals a month. But if you start learning from all these different people, all these different courses, you start investing in yourself. Now you're going to raise that lead.Speaker 2 (32:51):Yeah. A super powerful stuff. And yeah, that's why I respect people like you like river. Like I just saw a river post a few weeks ago. I think he went and, or maybe was last month or something, but he goes on by his door, door, door. You um, like he's, I mean, he's produced at a high level. He's closing tons of deals and guys like you and him, you're still looking for ways to level up and improve. And Ricky's at every single, you know, knock star event and everything. And like you probably have half the stuff McCarthy's as memorized at this point because I know you talked to them so much and them on your podcast and everything, but no, it's huge. Just invest in yourself. And that's what we're trying to do at Solciety do is just bring in guys that are produced.Speaker 2 (33:36):And it's not just my training course, but we're bringing in guys who are producing than eye level. Uh, the J Cass's the McCarthy's, they're all on there and they're, we're trying to get them in one place and keep adding content monthly. So keeps it fresh. Cause I think that's what guys need. And that's how, like you said, that's how they can keep themselves from getting stagnant and just falling back into old habits. They're investing in themselves and train them improve. Um, but yeah, speaking all that, Rick, I know you travel around as we talked about all the time and you're seeing teams that, uh, maybe you're seeing good and bad, but I know you're traveling to a lot of high level teams. So in your travels there with the Martinez circus, have you seen anything? I don't know what teams are doing, uh, to be successful or anything you notice, um, and in your, all your travels going to these different teams,Speaker 3 (34:32):Um, leadership first and foremost, um, dude, it comes down to the leadership really management. How, how well management does for me, for me, the key to a good manager or leader, someone who continuously works on themselves. Um, actually here's one thing that really sticks out to me Moe Falah recently, um, I think is on my podcast or your podcast, but he talks about when you become a leader, you become an owner. You no longer, these people will no longer work for you. You work for them.Speaker 2 (35:11):That's good.Speaker 3 (35:12):I think a leader that, that can instill that, that they work for other people and they work for their people. Right. Um, I've been in situations and I've, I've been in closes where like I've seen closers drop the price down to beat out a bed. Um, and I've been in situations where like the closure will do whatever it takes for the setter to get paid.Speaker 2 (35:40):Yeah. That's awesome.Speaker 3 (35:41):You know, and after we talk about it and the, you, yeah, the closest going to make like two, 300 bucks, right. Because they, they, they had to, they had to leverage the price so the seller can make their pay. Okay.Speaker 2 (35:54):Yeah. That's important that would taken care of your, you know, team, your centers. They're the ones that are, you know, feeding the golden goose. They're the ones that are helping you get paid. So that is important.Speaker 3 (36:06):It is. And I, and I mean, on the flip side, like even seeing some of the satyrs it's like dude, some of the centers have it really well. So I guess just this congruent or this fluid dynamic between setters and closers is really good, really important to have. No one is more important than, than the other, because I mean, I've been there and dude, I mean really singly. What happens if I know, I know you, Taylor will go out and knock if you need a knock, but you're going to back to and what the heck, there is so many closers in this industry who are so freaking spoiled that they won't even go knock, you know? So, so they just expect deals to come their way.Speaker 2 (36:51):Yeah. I know it's a problem for sure. Easy to get complacent, especially if they're running set or clothes or models and they're getting fed deals. It's like, oh, I got two hours. This is what I was doing when probably the last time we were working together, Rick is because Rick was actually a setter at the time and he was getting beaten the odds of deals. So if I have like a two hour break, I bet I'm just going to wait for Rick to go get another same day or even an appointment, go grab lunch, go up, look at some means.Speaker 2 (37:26):So yeah, it's super easy to get complacent and I'm sure you'd agree. The best people in the industry though. They're not. Yeah. They're, I'm sure they're getting deals too. But like Mike O'Donnell talks about this, how between deals he's going and getting a no on the doors. He's not waiting for the next deal. He's getting fed lots of deals. I know. But between his appointments, if he doesn't have anything, he's going to go, he's going to get at least a couple nos before he goes on to his next thing. And at the end of the day, that's what the top guys are doing. They're not waiting around for the next deal. They're going after, you know, their own appointments too and, and keeping up with it. So good. Uh, good stuff right there. Well, Ricky, I know you're a busy guy out in Texas. Um, so I want to be respectful your time. I know you've got means to create and uh, you know, places to be and all that. Um, but before we have maybe one or two other questions, do you want to tell people, um, if they don't already know and they might be living under a rock, you don't know where to connect with Rick at this point, but do you want to, um, I dunno, job, or be to connect with you and anything else you're working on?Speaker 3 (38:35):Yeah. So I'm mostly active on Instagram. Uh, I'm mostly known for the no soliciting bromine page. It's just at no soliciting bra I'm on Instagram. My personal Instagram is Rick dot Martinez with twosies and they are T I N E Z Z. Um, but yeah, I'm, I'm more active on Instagram. I have a Facebook or Twitter and a LinkedIn, but I don't ever check those.Speaker 2 (39:00):Okay. Who checks all that stuff. It's the boring social medias, so. Okay. Well cool. Well, Rick, we love having you on. And um, my last kind of question that I was thinking of anything you've seen delight, not do to like, I don't know, a successful person endorse it, or, um, what do you think they're staying away from? Or what do you think they're like cutting out of their lives, um, to be successful? Anything you have to say about that?Speaker 3 (39:29):I would say the most successful people that I know, oh, that's a good woman. What are they cutting out? Or what are they adding, right.Speaker 2 (39:40):Yeah. What are they cutting out and what are they not doing?Speaker 3 (39:44):Ooh.Speaker 2 (39:48):Or if you can think of stuff, they already, you can do that too. Whatever it is,Speaker 3 (39:52):There's so many, um, I would say things that take your time away from your craft. Okay. Time, time management is huge for a lot of the most successful people that I've seen. And I think I've been around just about all of them in a PR in like in, in a personal level to where they have a S they have a schedule. They have, if they don't have like a legit broken down schedule, they have an idea and they know where they are, where they need to be. At what time? Yeah. The more successful people that I've met, Carrie almost an hour by hour by hour schedule. And they plan the night before what they're going to do. And then the next day they confirm their plans by welcomes. Um, what, by what comes up the next day? I think the most successful people that I know don't leave anything up to chance. Yeah,Speaker 2 (40:51):Yeah. It's money. Yeah. And another thing is like, I don't know if you've done this before Rick, but just doing like a time analysis. That's something that I've seen top guys do. Cause I mean, the big problem is a lot of people don't even know where they're spending their time wasting their time. They think they were, uh, I don't know, maybe knocking for six hours when really it was like, they knocked, they spent 15 minutes on Instagram and they knocked a few more doors. They went and found a gas station. They might or might not even know that in their heads. So if you're struggling and that's, I think another huge key is figuring out what you're doing do at times study, write down for 15 minutes, every, you know, every 15, 20 minutes of the day. Exactly you did. And then that's going to tell you the truth. You know, it's like tracking your progress in the gym, do or tracking your sets. You can't really know what to improve if you don't even know what you did and you know, and kept track of it. So exactly important stuff for it. Uh, I know you got to go hit some doors and stuff, but any, uh, last, last words of advice you want to share with someone with a rep specifically in solar, I know you're in the solar mindset. Any, any final words you want to share?Speaker 3 (42:03):Don't miss out on this opportunity. Like I, so recently I had, I was in a team meeting and, um, it's, it's the same that Rob, Rob taught us a few years ago, Robert, um, he talked about two things, right? Life is going to be hard, no matter what, um, it's just which hard you want it to be. There. It comes down to two pains, the pains of discipline or the pain of regret, especially if, especially if you're working in these markets with high utility rates, you cannot afford to not be disciplined. You cannot afford to take time off because this time will come and it will come faster than you think. And then you're going to be looking back and you're going to be looking at your bank account and you're going to be like, I could have worked so much harder. I missed out on such a huge opportunity or you're going to be sitting on investments on whatever may be in your bank account is going to be exactly where you want it to be. If not more. And you're gonna think like, like that discipline and that pain of making that sacrifice is what's worth it. So I know for me, I've, I've, I've lived through regrets and I, and I'm not going to do it again.Speaker 2 (43:20):Yeah. Boom, that's fire. Perfect way to end. So for our Solarpreneurs, think about that next time you're struggling to get out on the doors. You're struggling to, I don't know, show up to your next appointment. Would you rather have that pain and go through it right now? Or would you rather look back and have the pain of knowing you didn't push as hard as you could have? So, Rick, thanks for coming on today. Everyone go give Rick a shout out, let him know you appreciated his content and more importantly, go follow them on his meme page if you're not already, but let's be honest. You should. Um, so Rick, thanks again for coming on and we will talk to you soon. My man.Speaker 3 (43:58):Thanks Taylor. Appreciate it, brother.Speaker 2 (44:00):Okay.

A convidada é bióloga de formação e actualmente investigadora no i3S – Instituto de Inovação e Investigação em Saúde, da Universidade do Porto, dedicando-se ao bem-estar e comportamento canino. -> Apoie este projecto e faça parte da comunidade de mecenas do 45 Graus em: 45graus.parafuso.net/apoiar No seu projecto de pós-doutoramento, que discutimos no episódio, a convidada investigou os efeitos dos vários métodos de treino no bem-estar de cães de companhia e na sua relação com o dono. Esta investigação despertou grande interesse na comunidade científica e teve destaque nos media internacionais. Para além de investigadora, a Catarina é também treinadora de cães, com formação na área. Esta dupla condição de investigadora e treinadora dá-lhe uma perspectiva invulgarmente sólida -- e retira-lhe, se calhar, alguns vieses que cada um dos campos inevitavelmente tem. Começámos a nossa conversa a tentar perceber como aconteceu a domesticação do cão a partir do lobo. É que o cão foi, por larga margem, o primeiro animal a ser domesticado pelos humanos. Não se tem ainda a certeza sobre exatamente quando. A estimativa mais conservadora aponta para 14 mil anos, portanto, antes da invenção da agricultura, depois da qual foram adoptados todos os outros animais que nos são familiares. Os cães têm, por isso, desde sempre, uma ligação muito próxima aos humanos, e ao longo do tempo, o homem foi selecionando na espécie canina várias características para se adaptarem a nós (embora, como iremos ver, não todas as que os distinguem dos lobos). Falámos também sobre os diferentes métodos de treino, mais baseados em castigo ou em recompensas, e sobre o que a investigação mostra sobre, por um lado, qual dos métodos é mais eficaz e, por outro, quais os efeitos no bem estar dos animais. Isto levou-nos a discutir também a mente dos cães. O facto de serem, como nós, um animal social, e de viverem há milhares de anos numa relação muito próxima com os humanos faz com que tenham muitas parecenças connosco. Mas também têm mais diferenças do que às vezes queremos reconhecer. E, no entanto, a verdade é que não param de surpreender. Já no final da conversa, falámos ainda de um tipo de treino inovador recente, que tem dado muito que falar, o chamado treino de imitação, em que, aparentemente, é possível ensinar um cão a imitar aquilo que fazemos, mesmo que nunca tenha visto aquele movimento antes. A confirmar-se, este tipo de treino permite não só ensinar muito mais rápido um determinado comportamento, face aos métodos tradicionais, como permite alargar o leque de acções que podemos ensinar aos cães. __________________________ Índice da conversa (carregar no indicador de tempo para saltar para esse mm:ss) (04:10) Como aconteceu a domesticação do cão a partir do lobo.

Contrary to the claims of many of today's advocates of computerized instruction and online learning, efforts to use technology to improve the education process are hardly new. In Teaching Machines: The History of Personalized Learning (MIT Press, 2021), Audrey Watters recounts the attempts over the past century to use technology to improve educational procedures. These began over a century ago with psychologist Sidney Pressy's effort to invent an “automatic teacher” that would eliminate drudgery by automating test scoring. While such efforts gained momentum in the 1930s, the attempts by manufacturers to profit from such technology often complicated their introduction and adoption. In the 1950s B. F. Skinner gave new life to these endeavors by developing devices and processes that applied his theories of behavioral psychology to the learning process. Though the idea of “push-button education” seized the public's imagination and stimulated efforts to introduce his teaching machines to the classroom, by the end of the 1960s the growing backlash against Skinner's ideas and regimentation in education ensured the demise of his vision of the automated classroom.

The Storm Skiing Podcast is sponsored by Mountain Gazette - Listen to the podcast for discount codes on subscriptions and merch.WhoCharles Skinner, Co-President and co-owner of Lutsen Mountains, Minnesota; and President and owner of Granite Peak, WisconsinRecorded onAugust 30, 2021Why I interviewed him Because my God, these mountains:They are improbable enough in the Midwest that few have had the audacity to even imagine ski areas of this size and variety. Enormous and interesting places, cut with endless glades and high-speed lift systems sparkling like some Sim City fantasy of what a built-from-scratch ski area could be. But Lutsen and Granite Peak are not what could be. They are what is: two of the best ski resorts in the Midwest. And there was nothing inevitable about that. This is what Granite Peak looked like in 1996, four years before Skinner took over:The ski area was “tired and old,” Skinner told me in the podcast. “It was like starting a whole new ski area.” Indeed, driven by his willingness to invest and his commitment to crafting mountains that are actually interesting to ski, Granite Peak is now one of the most up-to-date ski areas in the country.Skinner has vision. Many people do. But what makes him special is the tenacity, creativity, and organization to actually construct something tangible. Big, wild ski areas where they have no business being. I wanted to understand how he did it and what was happening next.What we talked aboutThe legacy of Skinner’s late father, Charles Skinner III, the founder of Sugar Hills, Minnesota and onetime GM of Sugarloaf and owner of Lutsen; skiing Minnesota as a child in the ‘60s; Lutsen in 1980; why the ski area installed the Midwest’s only gondola and why it makes sense even though it only rises 300 vertical feet; where that original gondola came from; what happened to Sugar Hills; how Skinner acquired the ski area from his father in the early ‘90s; how glades finally landed in the Midwest and the importance of a balanced mountain; bringing Mystery Mountain back from the dead; why Lutsen expanded onto the North Face; why Lutsen advertises a 1,088-foot vertical drop but only an 825-foot lift-served vertical drop; the gondola and Moose Mountain six-pack upgrades; which Lutsen lifts may be next in line for upgrades and what kind of lifts we may see; Lutsen’s mammoth expansion plan; what to expect out of the mass of new trails, glades, and lifts on Moose Mountain; creating an expansive beginner pod off of Eagle Mountain; the virtues of green-circle glades; how new baselodges would fix the mountain’s remote-parking problem; the advantages of drawing your snowmaking water from the largest body of fresh water on planet Earth; a potential timeline for the expansion and which parts of the project they would build first; why Skinner passed on Granite Peak the first time it came up for sale and what finally sold him on it; the “tired” and run-down Granite Peak of 2000 and how the ski area evolved into one of the Midwest’s largest and best ski complexes; Granite Peak’s huge expansion ambitions, including visions for new trails, chairs, and lodges; what may replace the Blitzen lift; why the mountain may build a mountain bike-only pod; why this expansion proposal is different from the one that fizzled half a decade ago; a potential expansion timeline and what may come first; the joint Lutsen-Granite Peak pass; why the two mountains joined the Indy Pass and why they added so many blackouts this season; the M.A.X. Pass and why Granite Peak and Lutsen didn’t join the Ikon Pass; why no one understands the Midwest; why Skinner considers his true competition to be Western destination resorts; whether he would ever buy another ski area; and whether the mountains will continue to be family-owned.Why I thought that now was a good time for this interview Because as big and built-out as they are, neither ski area is even close to finished. Both Granite Peak and Lutsen are working on expansion plans that would essentially double their trail footprints. Granite Peak would add four new pods of much-needed beginner and intermediate terrain to the east and west sides of existing trails. Most of the new lifts, Skinner told me, would be detachables:Lutsen would cut trails and glades along the rest of Moose Mountain and drop a large beginner pod off the back of Eagle Mountain. Lutsen’s lift network isn’t the Jetsonian marvel that Granite Peak’s is, but it would see substantial upgrades:These are two of the most transformative expansion projects underway in American skiing – and they are happening at what are already some of the most well-cared-for and thoughtfully developed and updated mountains in the Midwest. I wanted to see where Skinner was in these projects, when we could see the trails start to materialize out of the wilderness, and what it would take to nudge these plans into existence.What I got wrongIn the intro, I identified Skinner as the chairman of the board of the Minnesota Ski Areas Association, a position he’s since resigned from. When we discussed Lutsen’s expansion, I was looking at an old version of the expansion plan – the current one, and the one Skinner refers to in the podcast, is embedded above. In prepping for this interview, I’d studied old trailmaps and concluded that Skinner had added Mystery Mountain shortly after taking ownership, but what he actually did was revive it from its grave – the pod had been taken off the trailmap for several years for the simple reason that the lift serving it was broken. A close inspection of archived maps reveals that Lutsen simple de-emphasized Mystery Mountain the 1993 trailmap (left), and, once they installed a new lift in 1994 (right), the peak reappeared:Why you should ski thereBecause these may be the best ski areas between Whiteface and Winter Park. Set the singular Mount Bohemia aside here – most people couldn’t ski that wild and remote slice of gladed freefall if they tried. Granite Peak and Lutsen are true everyone mountains. Families like them. Radbrahs like them. People who wish they were skiing out West like them. In a Midwest where half the ski areas are clear-cut hillsides with 18 lifts climbing 250 vertical feet on a 10-acre footprint, these feel like something transplanted from another region, sprawling and tree-lined, with lifts that (mostly) don’t feel like they were stapled together A-Team style from a World War II scrapyard. The Upper Midwest is one of the world’s great ski centers, cold and snowy and filled with the hearty and the adventurous. It deserves ski areas like Granite Peak and Lutsen, and if you’re anywhere near them, they need to be on your list.Additional resourcesLutsenLift Blog’s Lutsen lift inventory - the gondola pics are especially goodAn archive of Lutsen trailmapsThe Star Tribune obituary for Skinner’s father, Charles Skinner III, who once owned Lutsen and passed away earlier this year.Granite PeakLift Blog’s Granite Peak lift inventoryAn archive of Granite Peak trailmapsGranite Peak GM and Marketing Director Greg Fisher on The Storm Skiing PodcastThis Ski article from 2002 captures the rapid-fire pace of Granite Peak’s transformation Get on the email list at www.stormskiing.com

We're Amy and Nancy Harrington and today we're talking with Quest Skinner, an artist who is always striving to find new ways to make her artwork break away the emotional blockade between artists and buyers. As a mixed-media artist, teacher and community activist. Quest is influenced by the energy of cityscapes, music and the personalities she encounters every day. Then, in her studio, she brings them into her world; a world that takes raw feelings, vibrations and various moments in our lives then captures them with flowing pigments. Quest's artwork tells a story that changes with every person who sees her work. Working with different traditional and non-traditional mediums, her fluid and always interchanging style of work keeps patrons coming back to explore the world through Quest's eyes. So please welcome to the show, Quest Skinner. Quest: Thank you guys for having me. Passionistas: What's the one thing you're most passionate about? Quest: I think as I get older, staying honest and true to self. Over the years, you know, we compromise just a little and sometimes it really will take one moment and make it eternal. I just want to make sure that I stay true to self and vibe and keep my, my spirit in life and love. It's so easy to get knocked off of your posts when things aren't always, or don't appear to be what you want or aren't in focus in that moment. So staying focused. Passionistas: Let's take a step back. Tell us a little bit about where you grew up and your childhood. And, um, in particular, where did your name come from? Quest: Childhood is one of those sensitive issues with me. I think like anybody who really creates and put your heart in your blood and your mind into it, it's got to come out of something. And I look at my childhood coming out of Pittsburgh, a little like a coal miner's daughter. I was, I learned how to sew. I learned how to hunt. I learned how to fish. I learned how to live organic and be a part of everything around me. And then I also learned we're fine. And I learned how to dress and walk the part and go to Bible school. And you know, this, I went to Colfax Elementary School, so a little Jewish elementary school, and I learned the world from being in a microcosm that was so filled with culture. The one thing I can say is those mountain cities, like the one that I moved to now, Seattle, they're filled with so much art, so much culture vibing communities that in the worst of times, really make the most intricate and extreme and brilliant thought process manifest out of nothing. So, yeah, Pittsburgh, that was part of it. And then about 16. And after my 16th birthday, my mother kind of packed me up and said, we're moving Arizona. And I went from mountains to Val. And it was very amazing. I got really interconnected with, um, one of my cousins and she's just a spirit of fire and life and by vivacious. And here we both are at 43 and we are alive. I think it all comes from being, being in, in extreme different environments and not really knowing what I was getting into, but being a part of that environment made emoted and really created this like international, global little phenomenon spirit. It was everybody to go a little bit deeper into it. How did I even get my name? I was in high school and I had to write a paper. It was like one of those graduating papers, you know, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I remember choosing to write it about two sisters, one Simplicity, and the other one was Quest. And Simplicity was everything that a parent would want, calm, chill, responsible, this, that, and a third. And Quest was everything that everybody should want to be — free, expressive, full of love, sexy, but not sexual, sensual, but not offensive like me. And I realized in that moment that that is who I would always be. And it wasn't so much, like, I think when we think of artists choosing names, we don't look at the history of the country and look at the tribes always. We didn't really name. We didn't look at it as naming. People, pick their names, their souls were picked upon these growth and developments. So to just adjust to my original into who I am now, the name just gave it gravity. Passionistas: What is your cultural heritage? What's your ancestry. And how does that kind of impact the path year one? Quest: So how about this love life. Had a little had that I'm about to turn 40 nervous breakdown and made everybody kind of like dig in and do the genealogy by records. And our family is actually a Cherokee, Iroquois, uh, Choctaw, Chickasaw, uh, Shinnecock, uh, and Piscataway natives. You know, you think about it over time in 500 years. It's so beautiful that maybe not all the tribes got together, but they created together this gorgeous entity and being so, you know, that's why, where my head dress and that's how even Burning Man found me. And it was funny to me, when presented with all these great minds from around the world. And I'm like, yeah, I'm a black native. You know, I'm a native American. We came in on hues. And they're looking at me and they're like, why aren't you mad? I'm like, man, this is so big. It's so deep. It's bigger than even me. Right. But this is the story that has to be told so that we can heal. There's a reason why it was called the melting pot. We had every color, we had every spectrum and we always have. And when we go back to loving all of our unique ancestry and our, and our spirit, and we can begin to know who we really are, then we set ourselves free. Passionistas: So let's talk about you getting into art. Were you always an artist? Quest: I think I was, I think from the little tie dye shorts when I was a kid and the first time I kind of got a hold of a bottle of bleach and understood that I could take my genes and create and alter something else out. Uh, I made bandanas a little hint. Here's scrunchies for kids in elementary school. Like so poetry, you know, in high school and toured what's up with people. I think I always was this, but it's when we find our art forms. It's when we find our medium or maybe I should say when they find us, when we have exposed ourself enough that we can be a channel and a conduit and really pick up as a vessel, all the possibilities. I think I always was an artist, but I remember my first art show. So funny. I remember I'm in DC. I'm having this, like, you know, gotta come through big. I've got an art shit right now. Just have one. I get to, so my first opening night, I got two shows. I'm bouncing from here, running down the street to the next one. And I remember my parents coming and my stepfather looked at me and he. That's what you are. You're an art. Okay. We can take it from there because we didn't know what you were going to be because you can be anything. So that's what you are. You're an artist. And I looked at him and I said, for sure, and always, and now I get it like two decades later, massive amount of pieces done, you know, and, and created. And somehow to be able to create. 13,000 pieces, but it's so hard for some people to pull them all together and see them as one beam, because there's so many different styles and, and I just, I would get tired. I would get bored of something. I don't want to think the same little lady all day long. I refuse. And it got to the point where I would tell clients when I'm done with the color it stuck. When red is over, red is dead. When it's time for green. That's right. When it's blue will be true, but when it's over, you will not ask me again for this painting. I think that that one move is what saved my psyche. Cause I had payment this Africa lady, so cute. God, I still leverage it as day, but I had a dozen women try to get me to paint this painting over and over again. And insanity is doing the same thing over and over again. Passionistas: How did you take that moment? And what, where did your art go from there? If you can do anything, how do you, how do you channel, um, what your inspiration is into the right piece of art? Quest: I wish I had that formula. I wish I could literally sit back and go, oh, this is what makes it. Honestly, I think it's like my neighbor who knocked on a door earlier. It's just having those spirits randomly come through who I'm working on something and they just go, you know what I was thinking? And it amplified being open really, I think creates better pieces. As I get older, I wanted to worry about creating a perfect circle. Right. That's the ultimate like something so simple. But to be able to do a complete circle is a sign of a very ingenious individual. So how much time do you spend trying to do a perfect circle before you realized you could have just removed everything else around it and made it perfect. And it would have been a circle tip. Right? So I got to a point where I don't tell my work what to do it doesn't tell me what. I, I literally go in there and have fun smoke a Chile, listen to some Isley brothers or some really good music, maybe Shaka Khan. If I'm having a low day, I want to hear that. Tell me something good. I'm going to have some fun, like, but this was meant to be fun. It wasn't meant to break me down and worry about anything. It wasn't something that I chose so that I lost sight of like a beautiful sunny day and getting out there and enjoying it. It was something that I picked because it was cathartic, it was loving. And it allowed me to heal people that I love. They literally, even in like the worst times going through the pandemic, I would occasionally get like little emails and texts that said, like, just being here with my piece of art. I've made it like my little cuddle corner. It's where I'm finding my safe space. And that was the goal that when we have to go into our homes or go into our deeper selves, you have these totems around you to live your spirit and to carry you on to make you move forward, to think of yourself in that higher light. So when you flow like that, do you get to tell God what's. No. Okay. Do you get to tell angels how to like bless you? No. Okay. So art doesn't get to, I don't get to tell arc what to do. I'm lucky to be in a presence and to be a vessel up. And I seem like that defeats a lot of artists trying to found something that is endless and boundless without you in beautiful. And you're just here to transcribe for the audience. Nobody worries about the little lady in the, in the courtroom who actually puts all the words down forever. But in hindsight, she's the most important person because most people will be lost with her emotions instead of following a stenographer and understanding her words are creating the whole play out of everything that has happened in front of us. When we lose sight of that. So in sense, maybe I'm just that little humble stenographer for, in a corner, just typing away on the keys and nobody paying attention. Other jobs. I've had people go, that's your job. You're a flight attendant. I walk in the room as an artist and people are looking at those, you did that. Yeah. Yeah. I built that thing and it's like two stories high, in my apartment. Passionistas: You create in many different mediums, in many different styles. You say you don't want to create the same piece twice. But is there a, is there a common thread if you had to describe your style to somebody, what would you say? Quest: Regrounding, elegance, alchemy magic, fun, free, cocoa, sexy diva. And that's just what I get to live in and bring out of me and drop on a world. But I realized like my cocoa divas are my cream divas and my golden girls, and they are everybody in between. And there is no spectrum on it. It's a, it's a spirit on it. So I think I create for us as divine, feminine, as placed in a little zones where we can go. Like you see the pieces. We can go and smoke a cigarette over by miracle mile in Chicago, if we need to, or go ahead and like, you know, become warriors and battle dragons. But whatever it is when I was growing up, little girls had Barbies. And that was like the rate of our consciousness. Right? Little miss Barbie. And I love her. She got more adventurous and stuff, but she didn't always equate all of them. And the brush gives me what it, what it wants and the space and the canvas or the boards, they give me what they can bear. So some of the time, my little divas off might be pencil thin and other times they might be thick as rockstars and look like they go kick down a door and I love that. Like it is every woman and as somebody who's been 240 pounds to 150 pounds. You know what I'm saying? It's like, I'm all of them. We go through so many stages in our life. We deserve to have little, little dolls that really do fit all of us. We deserve to have gorgeous little warriors that still in our heart note, if they're going to, like, after the war is over, go sit under those, some underneath the bullet bath and read books with kids. We still have to be the mother, the warrior, the festival, the nurturer that everything. But we, we need more variety in our attitude about how we accept that. You know, we're not every little girl wants to wear the little tube, pink release, gargle nights. Some of them want to put on her little Carhartts and go out and get sustainable and ground themselves. And they don't want to be considered less because of how they, they find their, their, their speeds.

How did you get involved with burning man and what does that experience mean to you? Cause it seems like it's a very significant experience to people who are part of that movement. Quest: It's like when you say burning man, the first thing you got almost in your heart as welcome home. So that would have went. That's really what it was for the outgoing autodidact. Little little diva who pretty much speaks multiple languages has traveled the world, but always can be seen in one dimension, depending on the United States where I'm at. Right. I get there. Everybody's like, it's going to be different. You have an nymity, people will just let you be quests. And it's like, I walk on Playa, no anonymity rockstar. And from the moment I get there and it was. I at least found kids like myself who were still trapped in her older they're adults, but needed to run around in our moon boots and our little tidy whities and be free. One last time before the lights go out, I needed to be around other artists who love their work, but were afraid of the spotlight at the same time, too, because if you don't feel that anxiety and those butterflies, how do you, I know you're real. Like it burn. Okay. Going back. So, um, man, it's so crazy how my labs have always crisscrossed. Right? So my neighbor across the hallway, his name is Jr. Rest nexus. Um, we go to burning man together. He had been a burn a couple of times before we'll come in, show me the videos, the whole nine you're born with me next year. And I'm like, yeah. Okay. Well next year and he called me and I'm sitting in new Orleans. Getting ready to get on a flight. And he goes, what are you doing at the end of August? Beginning of September asset? I don't know. He says you want to go to Burning Man? And I put so many H-E and hockey sticks behind it and Y-E-SSSSSSS that I figured my heart was in it. So I ended up, um, getting ready to go to burning man announcing it at Eastern Market, finding out that I couldn't like, I, I. It was almost like blacklisted, right? It's like, you're going to, you're going to burning man. And you're leaving the fine art world of Eastern Market that you have been over here building, and you want to go party in the desert with people. And I'm like, no, I want to go to build art. I want to learn how to like be with the baddest engineers and see some of the most epic art pieces in a world. And that was my goal. When I started this. Just to see a life of art, where else in the world, can you go and see that much art and make a life out of it? So the whole thing with these star market, I remember calling one of my mentors for burn and he said, so, okay, most people lose their job coming back from burn. You lost your risk before you left. And I was like, he goes, so do you still want to go? And I said, If that's all they can do is try and stale me. Yeah, my dream I'm gone. I will always be able to make the artwork, sell the pieces, find a new fucking venue. And only when I come back, went back, talked to them, basically told them you guys have gone way too fucking far. We're looking at lost wages, restitutions and gag orders for the whole group. I think we should figure this out. Got my job back everything. Right? Like life was normal again. And I'm still on my way to Burning Man. I got to give them my ticket through BurningMan.org. They were looking to bring more people of color would project radical inclusion. And it was really, it was a, it was a blessing, not in disguise, announced in loud to be able to venture out. And when I got there realized. They were just as intrigued. And I think had spent just as much time learning about me, my art, my spirit, to make sure that I was a fit it's different when you're invited somewhere and people don't take the courtesy to understand who and what they're dealing with. I got pulled in with such, um, a nurturing spirit and I went from one camp my first year and I'm at the camp and everybody's like, Quest, it seems like you have a job. And I was like, yeah, I kind of do I'm working with foam camp and stuff and doing a front of house. And it was awesome. And they were like, you're the only person we know who came on vacation and picked up a job. I say, because even in my playland, I still got to have something to do with them. I'm not just going to be here on debaucherous is I'm damn near 40 and y'all some of y'all are my kids' age and I want to make sure you're safe. You know what I'm saying? It's not, it's not for me to go backwards. It's for me to go forward and be futuristic while forgiving those things that were backward in life. So end out on Playa. Next thing I know the next year, that camp, um, That I was working in front of the house with, I get called until you took one of the hardest jobs. And most people get yelled at screamed at the whole night and you just worked at, and we would love to have you mentioned your come out with us. So that relationship blossomed, I ended up doing costume, makeup, artistic design for them, direction shows with Alison and Alex Gray at Burning Man. It just was going home. Where, no more improving of yourself and what you can do, but in the right spirit in spaces where people were able to obtain, see, and you can grow and make these connections. So the following year, which would have been my third year, I got asked to have my artwork, artery in everywhere. And that is the heart of the Playa. That's where they put out all the artwork. And of course it's mind blowing. When some of the best artists in the world really do come up and, and go not, oh, I know you you're like for real, like, dude, you're, you're pretty decent. Like it's mind blowing and the pieces that they create with heart and salt, you know, I wish more people understood how artists truly do sacrifice and put everything in it to be able to have. Such a small glimmer on a window of opportunity to showcase and show like, you've got to love this thing. You got to love, like staying up, you know, like us, when I told you guys I'm up till five in the morning, this morning working on a mermaid, like, I'm sorry, I'm going to be 15 minutes late. You got to put it all in here. And sometimes you got to know like one thing may cost or, you know, go slightly undone because of, but it's worth it. Burn showed me. In a, in a whole nother capacity. Like I now know how to do plumbing. I know how to run solar panels. I know how to build an infrastructure in a middle of a desolate environment. I know how to help people who may not know how to help themselves. It almost is like being cute. Sparkly. By the time you pack up all your gear, your bags, your headlamps, all this, that. And the third, I feel every year, like I am almost like an itty bitty Marine worn out there in my tutus. And ready to go. Passionistas: Tell us about the commission, the mural you were commissioned to paint at The National Museum of Women in the Arts last year. Quest: During a pandemic after months. Um, you know, isolation, yeah, one of my best friends hit me up. Her daughter is my goddaughter, love her little like amazing lightning and a little yoga at nine years old, like best. And her mom calls me and she goes, babe, you know, we got to board up the museum and you know, I want to put one of your pieces up there. Would you be willing to do. And I was like, dude, okay. Yeah, actually I'll do it for you. What can I do? What should we do? And she said, it's all up to you. And I said, then I want to do Octavia Butler quotes. And we went drum and we picked some Octavia Butler quotes, and I just did the words and some little stencils and stuff on the side of the two doors. And while out there she walks up to me and goes, I need you to do one. Come around. It shows me the front of the women's museum. And I said, I know what to put there. I got it. I'm going to do it real quick and just need like two hours. So I put the woman with the headdress on and it said, um, in order for a Phoenix to rise, we must first burn. And that's the truth. Like we literally left one old world last year, one. Thousand year link and it was great, but it's over. And some things now must be put to Ash and sense to be able to rise to true potential. And a lot of that is people's fears and our hurt and our pain. And that was just one of my favorite pieces last year. And I started crying because when I think of the people that I love, they're the ones who will actually get me out to go. You know, to make these things into create these pieces don't fall. And Malani her name is Malani Douglas. I think that's who I would like you guys to work as your neck as my next Passionistas it's out there. Um, she's just an amazing spirit and her energy. We have been friends since we were in our twenties. When a great woman called her shoe, you get on a phone and you go to, and that's what, one of the greatest women that I know, and to be able to put that up at the Women's Museum, all of the women walking by, and then to see those who are indigenous people, black, indigenous Aboriginal Americans, who don't even know that. And go, we got a little Cherokee in us, or we got a little Choctaw in our family too, and it's like, we are, and I love you all for that. And to give you a total man for you to start seeing that it's a natural progression where we are, who we are, it just makes it all simpler. It makes it better. It was a fun piece. I really did enjoy doing that one, but more than anything, I just love doing it because Melanie. That's pretty hard. He's just like, when it comes to me doing pizza, she's like, dude, whatever you do, whatever you need, whatever you want to do, rock out so supportive. Passionistas: While you were doing that, the people walking by were part of the Black Lives Matter protests. Right? Quest: It was everything, you know, I'm down here and I'm realizing like you've got black lives matter. People walking by, you have people who are out of uniform, walking by who are down there, holding them back. It was so just pose because you have people who it was their job, and they did not want to be there. And you have people who were fighting for their lives. And that was now their new job in a pandemic. When your people have to come out and plead for civil civil rights, like plead for food for better education. Because now they understand that their children have been defeated for the last five and 10 and 15 years. When they, when they realize that they believed in something and they were looked down by their beliefs, it said to think that out of all the so-called, um, first world country, We had, uh, we had a 10th world approach. We left our children out there. We left our elderly out there. We left Black Lives Matter for sure. You know what I'm saying? But we left everybody last year. Scared, exhausted, fighting for love, fighting for rights. When in all honesty, it's almost appalling when you think of the other countries that literally. In your bank account tomorrow, you will wake up and there will be $10,000 or $20,000 because that's honestly, and we know because we have accountants, we have eco economists. We know this to survive for six months. As we're asking you to please stay home so we can keep you safe. You are workforce, you are our doctors. We need to lessen the burden on everybody. Last year. It was a perfect piece to put in front of everyone. Given a chance though. I would probably now put a mirror there and let people know that year was supposed to be for you to focus on reflect on and change yourself. What excuse can you have while watching someone's child shot dead in the middle of the street? What validity can you give me? What communication can you tell me is important over here? And if you can find that there is something perversed and sick with you, and we need to call it out. Like we are so geared to call out everyone's atrocities and offenses, but we won't call out the simple fact that this has been atrocious and offensive for just the global community outside the United States. I have to bear witness and watch every day. It's interesting. How many people, I think, lost focus of how much of an opportunity this was, you know, too, we did it smart. There would have been free classes. I'd have yarn, a Yale, Harvard, Duke, and. For everyone so that you can get skills trades, do physical therapy, be able to, you know, talk to counselors. We literally left a whole world almost abandoned and abated here without any guidance in any care. Passionistas: So what's your dream for the future for your little granddaughter and for your little goddaughter? When I was young, I used to say every morning when I woke up, God make me strong. Cause yesterday I was. I probably wasn't the best one in the world. And I know there are hundreds of little girls and then one day I realized after like worshiping and post covers, that were thousands of little girls looking up to me as great as she is the little girl who surpass it's me, that she stays elegant, refined, beautiful unapologetic about her spirit, her body, her mind operated. We opened the flood gates for every little girl where they can walk. And be safe and protected instead of disrespect, rejected and raped by people who were supposed to be there for them. I pray that she knows none of the pains in which I, as a woman have had to endure because we should be the last ones. I pray that she gets to walk on golden like bricks and, mm. Ever knows anything but joy for her. And I've told her that before and my goddaughter, my other goddaughter is coming to visit me this week. And you know, these were little girls who got dropped off by my stands by their parents. And some of them, their dads would just go, this is what a real black woman looks like in an entrepreneur. And they started their business. It's my other little goddaughter now she's in her twenties, 24, right? He came in and all my clients are in there and they're like, oh, we want to buy in advance the guys. She looked at me and she said, no, I'm buying a van. She said, that's where you pulled us to the side and made us women and made us go. People will not argue in public. You will not disrespect yourself or anybody else out here. We're going to figure this out. I will show you how to battle and be mad because people don't understand that you have a right and you shouldn't be picked with, I will show you how to protect yourself, but we will not disrespect us. I want them, I want them to constantly know that every woman was ever had to stand on her own for self up by the bootstraps, you know, put everything in a perspective. I did it not just for me. I did it for you because at 60, I do not want to be sitting in a room and somebody disrespect him again, lady. And at 60, I got to get up and go say something. These days should be in the buckets. If men do not know how to conduct themselves around women, you probably shouldn't work around. Period. If you do not know that you came from a woman, then you probably shouldn't have one period. If you can't get over the fact that not everybody was perfect. And half of the people didn't know what they were doing, you probably. I hope that we can give them everything, everything, every starring role, every center at a stage, I hope that she is Misty Copeland. I hope she has the presence of Lena Horne. I hope they're endowed with the greatest gifts of knowledge. I hope that thought and emo tap and everybody touched their grace from, from here on out. I want them to be able to live a full life and not die from exhaustion, racism, fear. I want her to know what it's like to be a human being and not marginalized by color or financials or this, that and the third. And if I get my way, I want to make sure they get a big coin before I go. Then when you got a nice little trust fund, one day. Passionistas: Thanks for listening to our interview with Quest Skinner.
