Black Goldfish: 10 Keys to Creating a Differentiated Experience by Stan Phelps About the Book: Your brand today is no longer what you tell people it is. It is the differentiated experience (DX) your employees deliver. It is what you stand for and how your customers feel about you. And most importantly, your brand is what your customers and employees tell others about their experience. Black Goldfish is an amalgam of the first 10 colors in the Goldfish Series. The color black happens when you put all the other colors together. Here's a quick overview of the colors and 10 keys to creating a differentiated experience: PURPLE - little things that add value or make it easier for customers GREEN - little things that drive engagement and reinforce culture for employees GOLDEN - little things for your “vital few” employees and customers BLUE - leveraging technology, data, and analytics to improve customer experience RED - embracing purpose in business to benefit employees, customers, and shareholders PINK - differentiating by defying normal and exploiting imperfection YELLOW - contributing to the happiness of customers, employees, and society DIAMOND - excelling under pressure in sales and client management GRAY - leading across the five generations in the modern workplace SILVER - rising above distractions to communicate both loud and clear About the Author: Stan Phelps is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, and workshop facilitator. Stan is a TEDx speaker, and an IBM futurist and his writing has been syndicated on top sites such as Forbes, Customerthink, and Business2Community. He has spoken at more than 500 events across Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Ecuador, France, Germany, Holland, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Peru, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, the UK, and the US.

10 years ago, at the age of 30, Hebah Hefzy realized she needed to make a change. Hebah graduated from high school at 16 years old and medical school at 22. Her drive and talent were elite . Her academics and career were a priority for Hebah but her physical fitness had taken a backseat. She was alarmed when she felt out of shape climbing a flight of stairs. As a doctor, Hefzy talked to patients about the importance of exercise but she was failing to walk-the-walk. Hefzy couldn't run a mile, but decided running was something she could fit into her schedule. At the time she was married with three children and working as a vascular neurologist in Detroit, Michigan. During her lunch breaks she would change in a Starbucks bathroom, run for 10 minutes, then go bac to work. It wasn't ideal but it was a start. In the following 10 years Hebah attacked her running goals with energy and optimism, even when some of the people closest to her insisted that she stop. Now Hebah is a six time Boston Marathon qualifier, has run 26 marathons, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, and a 100 mile race finisher. When you hear Hebah you will agree that there is nothing that this incredible woman can't do. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Do your people really KNOW how you feel about them? Like do they know how much you love them and why you love them - all of it? One of the biggest lessons learned in the last month is how important it is to LOVE YOUR PEOPLE HARD. It's just so easy to get caught up in routine and the daily to do's and before you know it, the day is done and it's time to sleep then do it all over again. Sometimes that means slowing down and other times it means setting rules so you don't miss the good stuff. Lots and lots of ideas of how you can show your people love on the daily. Lindsay talks about the changes she's made in her life since her husbands health scare. One of the biggest- showing her people how much she loves them on the daily. We only have so much energy in a day. And since we know… where attention goes, energy flows, we have to be super careful about what we spend our physical and mental energy on. Because time spent worrying about things that don't really matter, take away from time spent on the important stuff. It's so easy to be frustrated and distracted - both things that take us further from the goal. -Here is how Lindsay adds habit triggers: Like the podcast tips on habits in general - put things out or stack them! Like put things in the tray in the kitchen or in the bedroom - to remember to do it. OR do it RIGHT AFTER something else. So it happens. This is a great way to actually change - and not stay the same. It's hard to change your ways especially if you have done the same things for a long time. These are the BEST strategies for adding in more LOVE routines to your life. -Here are the ways Lindsay does it: 10 minutes per kid each night before bed doing whatever it is that is best for them. More physical! Hugs, taps, squeezes. And THOUGHTFUL things. Eye contact - being present. Knowing they are important. We need more human touch because we are all online so much! Saying no or cancelling plans when you need it. Show appreciation Be spontaneous Celebrate what makes them unique Compliments Thoughtful gifts Celebrate them! Birthdays or wins Do activities they like Take good care of them when they are sick Movie night Hold hands Do a chore for them - like getting gas or picking up prescription, dry cleaning. Something you wouldn't do normally. -Ways people sent in! Bring coffee Phone call, text, say I love you. 1 on 1 time with each person Date nights Check in on them Ordering something that will make life easier - new to go cup, key tile Reflecting on the day at bedtime ex: I saw you were determined etc Making coffee / tea each day Buying favorite snacks/wine Stop and hug my people, even when im busy Call/text when they're going through a rough time. Offer my time to help. Random text when thinking of a friend Lunch ones for kids and husband Surprise fav drink or snack Good night and good morning routines to start and end the day with love and gratitude Pack healthy snack for office Make them laugh, hide notes or a card Listening to people Being present when we are all together Send texts to my teens wishing a good day and reminding I love you Wellness check texts! Watch their fav shoes instead of yours Conversation cards on long trips - ask questions Scratch hubby's back while he brushes teeth Be present - turn off phone Cooking healthy food for them Cook and bake for them Serve hubby dessert with night meds in his chair I try to do 1 on 1 things that fills their love language even if it is not the way I normally show love. Randomly send friends a Starbucks gift card Folding their laundry Make sure they know how I feel on the regular Always kiss my kids good night at every age Organize husbands supplements My hubby tucks in my sheets at night so I'm extra comfortable CHEERS to loving your people HARD!

The coffee giant prides itself on being an inclusive workplace for the LGBTQ+ community, but Pittsburgh workers say the benefits it offers — like gender-affirming health care — are often inaccessible. City Cast's Francesca Dabecco talks to union organizer and author of “On The Line,” Daisy Pitkin, about how queer folks are at the center of this historic workers rights movement. Plus, local Starbucks partners share their perspective.

Filled with renewed energy from watching some of the amazing panels and speeches at this weekend's Labor Notes conference, it's another episode of Work Stoppage. We start with several follow-ups, first in South Korea, where truckers won their strike and secured an agreement to extend minimum wage protections. Also this week, XPO Logistics truckers at the Port of Los Angeles finally won their NLRB hearing and have been reclassified employees rather than independent contractors and will now have a union election. The Massachusetts Supreme Court struck down a proposed Prop 22 clone this week, in a good move for gig workers in the state. In big news this week, we finally have our first unionized Apple store, as the workers of Towson, Maryland won their election by a 2:1 margin to organize with the Machinists. Retaliation against ALU organizers continued this week with yet another being fired, the same week as the hearing to determine whether the JFK8 election will be upheld got underway in Arizona. 1450 researchers at the University of Washington voted overwhelmingly to unionize with the UAW after the University refused voluntary recognition last December. For our big story this week, a massive national strike has been underway in Ecuador as Indigenous groups are leading huge swaths of the working class in protest of the right wing government. Finally, as usually, we close out with a look at the many Starbucks wins this week, even as the company continues its failing scorched earth campaign of union busting.

Sam hosts Jaz Brisack of Starbucks Workers United to give us some updates from the unionization efforts on the ground. Then, Sam is joined by Michael Bronski, professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Harvard University, to discuss his recent piece in the Boston Review "Grooming and the Christian Politics of Innocence". First, Sam dives into the continuing defamation suit by Dominion against Fox, SCOTUS' decision to publically fund private religious schools, and the blistering updates from the 1/6 hearing, including testimony from Shea Moss, the election official accused by name by Trump, on the life-shattering matter that this was for her, from death threats at her home to racist threats in public, and Trump asks Arizona House officials to give him a break, I mean it's what? 11,000 votes?? Next, Jaz Brisack joins as she and Sam get right into her incredible history in labor organizing having only recently graduated, discussing growing up in Texas and Mississippi and knowing she wanted to work in the field of labor, with her first dip into organizing during the fight with the United Auto Workers to organize a massive Nissan factory and what she learned from those original interactions with dirty anti-union corporate tactics. Although that vote fell short in 2017, Jaz discusses the massive influence it had on her and her hopes for organizing, as she carried her interest in labor organizing and labor history into her years as a Rhodes Scholar, before finally getting into her work organizing fast-food franchises in upstate New York. Here, she dives into her work, both labor and organizing, at Panera and Spot Coffee, and how her work with the International Workers of the World finally brought her to the Starbucks in Buffalo where the inklings of SWU began. After diving deep into the challenges and unique qualities of being the first (of so many) unionized Starbucks in the world and the nature of supposedly “progressive” organizations creating a divide in the workplace when it comes to labor rights and violations, they wrap up the interview by covering the importance of labor fights making it onto the mainstream stage and where SWU is going next. Professor Bronski then drops by to walk through the history of the translation of a Christian politics of innocence into homophobic and transphobic legislation, first looking at the sexual psychopath laws of the 1920s to '30s and the shift in the ‘40s and ‘50s to focusing on the threat to children, before diving deeper into this concept of “innocence” and how it plays into a Christian fundamentalist's political ideology. Next, they discuss the role of figureheads like Anita Bryant in pushing back against any social progress for the LGBTQ+ community and bringing about the '90s version of “don't say gay” legislation, before they wrap up the interview with a larger conversation on the waves of homophobia as reactions to threats on the patriarchy, the role of the Women's lib movement in this, particularly in opening up children to be corrupted, and situate this moment of homophobic political backlash. And in the Fun Half: Sam dives into the 1/6 hearings and why Democrats are obsessed with the few Republicans that determine speaking out against Trump to be their best career path, and listen into Adam Schiff's discussion with AZ Speaker of the House on Trump's official requests to overturn the election, Shea Moss' mother on how Trump's public accusations have had wildly distressing effects on their day-to-day lives, and Ron Johnson's defense of his chief of staff attempting to deliver false elector lists to Mike Pence in the WAKE of the 1/6 violence. Chris from Berkeley and Valerie from AZ dive into the pain and frustration they feel about how Democrats are handling these hearings, Gregory from Oklahoma dives into his race for State House District 26, and Jesse Watters pitches COINTELPRO-ing the reproductive rights advocates protesting outside of the Supreme Court.

In today's episode, stuck in Nantucket, Erik sits down and answers a few questions regarding the Metaverse and Sheryl Sandberg's legacy with Facebook. In futurism and science fiction, the metaverse is a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal and immersive virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual reality and augmented reality headsets. In colloquial use, a metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. In addition, Sheryl Sandberg serves as chief operating officer of Meta Platforms, a position from which she announced, on June 1, 2022, that she is stepping down in the fall of 2022. She is also the founder of LeanIn.Org. 5x #1 Bestselling Author and Motivational Speaker Erik Qualman has performed in over 55 countries and reached over 50 million people this past decade.

How can we get better at receiving negative feedback? Mellody Hobson, Co-CEO and President at Ariel Investments and Chair of the Board of Starbucks, joins your host, Dr. Joe Sweeney, Executive Director of the Alliance for Decision Education, to talk about her journey to becoming one of Time Magazine's “100 Most Influential People,” and a nationally recognized voice on financial literacy. Mellody and Joe discuss how to be courageous and patient in our investments and our careers, how organizations can put people first without compromising on profit, and how great leaders adapt when facing high-stake challenges and great uncertainty. Mellody shares insights from the COVID-19 pandemic when she advised Starbucks on supporting 440,000 employees across 83 countries, and worked with Chicago-based non-profit After School Matters to provide teens with urgently needed food and essentials. Mellody also shares a much-needed update to the idea that our children can “do anything.”

You know what time it is. We are back out it with another episode of the Light After Trauma podcast. You know the deal. I'm your host, Alyssa Scolari and life is pretty good right now. Just wanted to take a moment to kind of check in with all of you. And sometimes I feel like with the interview episodes, sometimes I feel like my personality or my connection to the audience can get lost in translation, just because I think there's a lot of obviously getting to hear and understand and process the stories and the information from the guest speakers. [00:01:27] So while I absolutely love having guest speakers, I also really want to maintain an authentic connection with all the listeners out there. So, today I was supposed to have a guest speaker come on and unfortunately there was just some kind of confusion in scheduling. So we had to reschedule and I have some free time and I was like, you know what: [00:01:53] "I actually have some things I wanted to talk about." So it's kind of nice to be able to do a solo episode. I have not done one in a while and that is not because I haven't wanted to, but life has been a little bit, how would you say this: wild, insane all over the place, aah I shouldn't say insane. One of the things I've really been trying to work on is trying to avoid the use of certain words. [00:02:25] When we talk about the concept of linguistic evolution, right?.We don't use certain words anymore. I think one of the words that I'm really trying hard to stop using is crazy and insane. So my reactions to things, because I'm such an animated person, my gut response is to always be like, "oh my God, that's crazy." [00:02:45] Or, "oh my God, that's insane." But you know, it can be offensive calling somebody crazy. You know, the word crazy itself has a very negative connotation and was, I think a lot of people who struggled with mental illness were called crazy and I've been called crazy actually. And it's, it cuts pretty deep. [00:03:07] So, that's just my own personal preference. Some people may be listening and may be like, "oh my gosh, that's way too much of a stretch," but that's just something I've been trying to work on. So that was a little tidbit, but life has been so wild. We are in the process of house hunting. And if any of you know anything about this market, it is... [00:03:29] I mean again, I'm not going to say crazy, but it is unlike anything I've ever seen before in my life. People are coming in and offering literally a hundred thousand dollars over asking price for homes, because there's such a high demand for homes. And there simply aren't enough sellers. And we know we've been looking for homes for.... [00:03:50] I want to say coming up on a year now. And it has been a really defeating process. The last couple months in particular, we thought that we had found something and we're still actually not entirely sure if it's going to go through, we don't know. So we may be moving. We may not be moving, but our lives have really been house hunting every spare minute that we get. [00:04:13] And I live in New Jersey as many of you know, but we are looking to move to a different state. So, we're looking to move to Pennsylvania. So I would still be able to commute to my office in New Jersey. It's been so tough and every second has been spent traveling to another state to look at homes and making offers on homes and getting your hopes up and getting deflated essentially when you're told that somebody else came in and offered a hundred thousand dollars over asking price. And it's just, I don't know, it's very defeating. I have wanted to get out of the town that I live in for quite some time. It doesn't hold the best memories for me. [00:04:58] And it's, I think very triggering to live in the same town where a lot of your trauma occurred and no, that's not to say I haven't had some good times in this place. I certainly have, but it's really hard living in a place where you've had traumas because I am reminded every day of my life. So. I really have been itching to get out of this town and get out of this area. [00:05:28] And sadly, it's just not working out, which I have a very hard time with being told no. Or with having to wait. I'm not very patient. I kind of want what I want when I want it, which is something I'm working on. So yeah, it's just been...it's been rough and we want to have a bigger yard for our dogs and it's been, it's been a hard time, you know, things could certainly be worse. [00:05:58] Thank God. My health is improving. I'm healing. I'm getting better. My autoimmune disease is, it appears, knock on wood, to be in remission. I hate to even say that out loud because I'm terrified that I'm going to get a flare up again. You can, if you're curious to hear more about the auto-immune issues that I've been having, you can tune into episode 41. [00:06:21] I believe it is where I talk a little bit more about the autoimmune disease I was diagnosed with. So with all of that said, it's just. It's been a little hectic. So I have not, I feel given my own, I haven't really put the personal touch on a lot of what I do because I really just haven't had the space to do that. [00:06:46] So I appreciate all of your understanding and that I am really working on getting back to adding a little bit more of a personal touch. I was really excited about all the feedback I got for the mini-sode series, the Survive and Thrive stories. It's been so fun and such an honor to be able to read everybody's story. [00:07:08] So please, please, please. If you feel called to do so. Please send in your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. I really, I am just so honored. And so, so many are so funny, those emails that you send and I love it cause I'm a big fan of humor therapy. So I love being able to kind of take what you've been through and take things that are really, really dark and very serious and find kinda some light or some humor in them. Again, that doesn't take away from the seriousness of what happened, but some of y'all just have a really good sense of humor. So I appreciate, hearing your your stories. So with that said, I wanted to come on to talk about an experience that I had today, which felt so liberating. And I think now's a really good time to share this experience. I went to the beach today and that might not seem like a big deal for people who don't struggle with body competence. But for me, that was huge. And I went by myself. First of all, because of the pandemic, I really haven't been to the beach in over a year. [00:08:25] So I have not had to like do the whole bathing suit situation in quite some time. And second of all, I was alone, which is always extra hard for me because it's one of those things where, when you're alone, I think you're more in your head and you feel more like people are looking at you. [00:08:48] So today is, it's a Wednesday. I don't see clients on Wednesdays. It's my day off. And I decided, you know, the weather is beautiful. I'm heading to the beach today. And I packed my stuff up. And I went to the beach all by myself and I struggled. I went with shorts and like kind of an oversized t-shirt and I struggled with whether or not I was going to take my bathing suit off...take my bathing suit off!?!? [00:09:17] Yeah, no, I was not going to do that. Hoping to not end up in jail for public indecency. What I was trying to say is I was debating whether or not I was going to take off my shirt and my shorts and just kind of be in my bikini and it was really a battle. Of course, I had to like look around at the people next to me and kind of size them up and be like, well, are they looking at me? [00:09:45] You know, what are they going to think? But then I just did it, right. I tried to get out of my head and into my body and I was like, what would feel good right now? And what would feel good is to be able to lay down on this huge beach blanket that I have that I think my aunt got me when I was in the fourth grade is still have it because it's amazing [00:10:06] All I want us to do is just chill out on my beach blanket and have that like warm sensation of the sun on your skin, glorious. Well, obviously I can't do that when I'm covered from head to toe and, you know, clothing and not a bathing suit. So I was like, all right. Screw it taking off my clothes. So I did it. [00:10:28] I was in a bikini and. Just as an aside, it was a bikini that I enjoyed. Right. It wasn't a bikini that I bought because I was like, oh, well this is going to cover up the most. So let me just buy this one. This one was so fun. It was like a light blue, like a sky blue with like gold throughout. And it was strapless, which like.... [00:10:57] why am I talking about the details? So I'm talking about the details because I love the bikini and I'm allowed to love the bikini. And I don't think it hit me that I was allowed to love a bathing suit that I was in until today. When I was just laying on that blanket with my toes in the sand and the sun on my body. [00:11:17] And I was like, wow, I really liked this bikini. It's really comfortable. It's really cute. And I'm allowed to like it and you know what you're allowed to like your bathing suit too. So it was, I think really a transcendental moment for me, where I shifted from I'm just gonna wear whatever hides the most of my body to I'm going to wear whatever feels fucking fabulous. [00:11:47] And so I did it now. I struggled a little bit when it came time to like sit up. Right. And I know that there are people out there who can relate to this. So when it came time to sit up, I'm like, oh God, who's going to be looking at the rolls on my stomach. Now, I'm like looking around to see who's looking. [00:12:08] And in fact there was a guy who was, I don't know. He honestly, he was probably like 50 feet away from me. And I noticed that he got up and actually moved his chair further away at one point. And do you know what my eating disorder brain did? Right. Get a load of this shit. My eating disorder brain was like, oh, he probably got up and moved because he couldn't stand the sight of your body. [00:12:34] That is what my brain did. And it's horrible. And it's so body dysmorphic and it's so like eating disordered, but I was able to recognize it and I was able to talk back to it. And I told myself two things. I'm like one...well, I told myself a couple of things. One that's your fucking eating disorder, right. [00:12:57] Two, look at the tide, the tide had significantly risen, so there was much less beach and he probably didn't want his ass sitting in the water because his chair was very low to the ground. So he probably picked up his chair and moved it back so the water didn't hit him. It's still the middle of May. The water in New Jersey is still freezing. [00:13:20] That makes the most sense. What really doesn't make sense is the fact that he would take one look at me from 50 yards away and be so repulsed that he had to get up and move his chair. Like what come on, what is my eating disorder doing? Right. So, you know, at that moment I kind of just laughed at myself and I was like, honestly, Ed, I call my eating disorder, Ed. [00:13:42] It's a little tip that I got from a book that I read called Life Without Ed, by Jenny Schaefer, highly recommended by the way. So I call my eating disorder, Ed, and I was just like, you know what Ed, like, fuck you. Fuck you. Because you're not ruining my perfect day at the beach. And I sat up and that is a very hard thing for me to do. [00:14:05] I used to struggle and take like five minutes to sit up because I would have to have the towel wrapped around my stomach so that nobody could see my rolls because I was so embarrassed. Well, guess what? Today I just fucking sat up and it was so liberating. I sat there and I looked into the ocean and I could feel my stomach rolls, right. [00:14:32] Because who doesn't have a stomach roll when they're bending over or sitting like, that's what our bodies do. Right. Our skin rolls, the fat that we have in our stomach, like rolls, stomach rolls, aren't bad. And I just breathe and I was very, very in tune with my body. I was very in tune with my surroundings and I just didn't care if anybody was looking at me, you know, I ended up having a couple that came and sat actually somewhat close to me closer than what I'm comfortable with for sure. [00:15:11] And honestly, closer than what was necessary, because there was so much space on the beach. I don't know why they needed it to be that close to me, but whatever. I was uncomfortable and I was really just, I, at one point I just stopped caring and I became so much more infatuated with my body and sitting down and processing all of the turmoil. [00:15:36] My body has helped me to survive over the last year of the pandemic and then a whole bunch of things that happened in the middle of that pandemic that were pretty traumatizing. And I was filled with such gratitude, such gratitude for my body. Such gratitude for the tree trunk thighs that I've had my whole life that I have hated my whole life. [00:16:06] I found myself sitting in gratitude for these legs, for my stomach, my belly, for all the scars on my body, the stretch marks that are so natural that almost any body has quite frankly. I was just in gratitude and I felt so at peace with this body, I kind of just sat criss cross applesauce on the beach blanket, which I've never done before at a beach. [00:16:39] I truly, I've never done that before. And it hit me that I have lost so many valuable beach years because I spent time hating my body. There was a time where I would claim that I hated the beach because I simply didn't want to go because I didn't want to be seen. So I would be like, oh, I don't like the sand or I don't like the salty ocean water. [00:17:07] It makes me feel gross. That's such a load of crap. I love the sand, what a wonderful exfoliant. And I love the saltwater. It feels so healing to me. And I used to say for years that I hated the beach because I was terrified of being seen. And I just wasn't today. I was alone with myself, with my body, with nothing to distract me, and I felt completely at ease and there are people who come in my office and they ask me, or there are people who I connect with on social media. [00:17:48] And they ask me questions like, well, Alyssa, why am I doing this work? Why bother trying to recover from an eating disorder? Why bother trying to recover from trauma and it's so that you can have days like I had today where everything just feels okay inside of you, because at the end of the day, that's all that really matters, is that you feel good inside. And when you feel good inside, you care less about what other people are thinking. What other people are saying. It was the first time that I didn't spend my entire trip at the beach just looking at the people around me, wondering what they would think. If I dared to get up and walk over to the water and put my toes in the water, I just did it. I just got up and did it because it was what I wanted to do. And it's so beautiful. And, you know, I know that this will resonate with a lot of you. [00:18:58] And I want you to know that you can get to that spot too. It's a beautiful spot to be in. And I'm not saying that I will never struggle again. I think I absolutely will struggle again. I think that's just part of life, but all the hard work that I've done in trauma and in my eating disorder recovery has helped me get to this moment of truly loving the flesh that I was given, the meat on my body, the weird feet that I have, the you know, crooked smile that I have that some people probably have never noticed. And I notice all the time, I love all of it. And I might not tomorrow, I might wake up full of self-loathing, but today. It was a really, really healing moment for me. [00:19:53] And I want you to know that wherever you're at right now with your body and with yourself, you deserve to wear a bathing suit that you fucking love, and you deserve to go to the beach and to sit and to not have to look around and make sure that people aren't looking at your rolls, you deserve to be able to get to the beach and to take your shorts off. [00:20:18] And to not have to hide your thighs, be so thankful for this body that has gotten you through, if nothing else than just the last year alone of immense loss and sickness and fear and all the other horrible things that the pandemic has brought. Your body has kept you alive throughout it all. And if nothing else go to the beach and celebrate that and rock whatever body you have, because it is glorious, you are glorious and you deserve happiness. [00:21:00] And that's all I have to say about that really. I mean, I know that's a long winded speech. It's a long winded spiel, but I hope that it can help inspire at least one of you in knowing that this summer you literally do not have to suffer or hide yourself. You deserve to be seen on the inside and the outside. [00:21:24] So if this resonates with you, whether you are he or she or they, or anywhere in between, this is your sign that every single body is a beach body. And go where whatever bathing suit you want, have a wonderful summer. Everybody I'm still going to be here. I'm not going anywhere. Still going to be rolling out podcast episodes, but I love you all. [00:21:53] From the bottom of my heart. I am so incredibly thankful for your support, for your loyalty, for listening, for being on this journey with me, the highs and the lows of recovery I am with you, you are with me. I feel it every day. And I just feel like I have thousands of new friends and. I'm really grateful. [00:22:17] So thank you all. I love you all.

Reporting rent payments to credit bureaus is growing in popularity to help tenants build credit. But it's not just something that helps tenants. According to the media website, Propmodo, it's also a better way to do business for landlords. And there are a growing number of companies offering this service to both tenants and landlords. (1)Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Having a long history of on-time rent payments speaks well of a renter. That's something every landlord looks for during the screening process. But until more recently, the only option for passing that information along to the “next” landlord is by word of mouth – from one landlord to another who's checking references, typically by phone.For the renter, on-time rent payments will obviously keep the peace with a current landlord, and help with any phone calls from a new landlord, but it does little to improve a renter's credit score. Although renters can build credit from paying their other bills, rent hasn't been one of things reported to the big three credit agencies because landlords are not considered creditors.Technology-Based SolutionsThe arrival of technology-based solutions or “fintech” is changing the way this information is distributed. Just this week, a company called “Bilt Rewards” announced that it will offer a free rent reporting service for tenants who live in Bilt Alliance multi-family buildings.Bilt tenants have been able to earn points for paying their rent on time, and then use those points to pay for other things like travel or to help pay next month's rent. And now those tenants can also choose to have those rent payments reported to Experian, Equifax, and Transunion to help build their credit, which they need to possibly eventually buy a home.As Bilt says on its website: “Rent reporting can help build a credit history, increase the types of credit on your credit report, and may boost your credit score.” (2)Rent Reporting is Valuable to LandlordsThis kind of information is also valuable to landlords to evaluate the likelihood that a future tenant will pay his or her rent. It even seems like a glaring omission that rent reporting has not been part of the credit reporting system, but as I mentioned, that's changing.There are a number of companies now offering the service. FrontLobby and RentRedi are two that come to mind, along with the one I previously mentioned, Bilt Rewards.Propmodo mentions a company called Piñata that also rewards tenants for making on-time payments. It's a New Jersey start-up with an app that provides currency to tenants with timely rent payments. That currency can then be used to buy things from prominent brands like Costco, Amazon, and Starbucks. Piñata also helps tenants build credit, and hopes to close the credit discrimination gap for renters.Propmodo says that the “lack” of rent reporting can be a source of frustration for renters. According to a report from Harvard's Joint Center for Housing Studies, almost 11 million renters spent more than 50% of their income on housing in 2018. That's a big chunk of a typical renter's income that doesn't build equity, and without contributing to their credit score, provides no additional financial benefit.Building Credit, Avoiding DelinquenciesAs reported by Propmodo, FrontLobby says that tenants have seen their credit scores jump more than 40 points “in a matter of months.” And for landlords, it says they can “lower payment delinquencies by 36%.” The Propmodo piece calls it a win-win for both tenants and landlords because “landlords and property management companies can make better screening decisions when they're deciding who to rent to. And, it says that “offering to report a tenant's rent payments to the credit bureaus is its own incentive to attract tenants.” For tenants, it helps them build credit, which they might need if they ever want to become homeowners.Fannie Mae has been using data on rent payments in its underwriting process since last September. And Freddie Mac is reportedly looking into doing it as well.

Never were truer words spoken by President Trump. The Biden White House policy on energy has officially become so unbelievably childish and laughable it's all you can do now. Wait and laugh in their faces. Daniel Turner of Power the Future marvels with Stigall over the totally absurd answers the new White House Press Secretary was offering on the price of gasoline yesterday. Starbucks woeness has come back to bite them in a big way. Biden makes a total ass of himself referring to a sudden death at the White House. Meanwhile you've no doubt heard Democrats deny CRT is a real thing in our schools. It's very real and Ian Prior at America First Legal has the proof and the information you need to find it in your kids' district. Plus Cheryl Chumley - opinion editor at the Washington Times has authored a powerful new book on the progressive lockdown culture: “Lockdown: The Socialist Plan To Take Away Your Freedom.” Plus mail bag!
This week, we spoke to labor reporter Kim Kelly about the wave of union organizing at places like Amazon and Starbucks. In light of that, let's revisit our conversation with Talia Jane, who made headlines back in 2016 for asking her company Yelp to pay workers a living wage. After Talia Jane called out Yelp for failing to pay a living wage, she became the "entitled millennial" poster child. But she was actually right.

Hour 1 - Nick Reed is live at Scramblers Diner for the Friday Road Show. Here's what he covers this hour: President Biden appeared to get defensive during an interview Thursday when asked if his energy policies were to blame for inflation. The workers of a Starbucks location in Springfield announced on Thursday their intention to file for a National Labor Relations Board election, the first Springfield location to join the national unionization effort. The Greene County Commission awarded nearly $23 million of your tax dollars in the first distribution of American Rescue Plan Act funding. Although the fully vaccinated and doubled boosted Dr. Fauci had to testify virtually at a Senate hearing due to contracting COVID-19. During the hearing Sen. Rand Paul asked Fauci if he was familiar with the fact that no studies showed a reduction in deaths or hospitalizations for children who had received boosters. To which, the doctor acknowledged that there's not actually enough data to support the need for children to get boosted. ALSO - Chris Starks joins us this morning: Operation Market Garden.

The beverage category is a crowded place these days, especially with all the launches in the low-ABV and no-alcohol space. (Why are there so many spiked seltzers?) But that didn't deter Dee Charlemagne, co-founder of Avec, the fizzy mixers you can drink straight up or in a cocktail or mocktail. The brand launched early in the pandemic and has found a devoted audience for its modern flavors, ingredients, and low-to-no-sugar stance.

Sam and Emma host Jamie Edwards, organizer with the Trader Joe's Union effort in Hadley, Massachusetts, to discuss the union organizing efforts from the ground. First, however, they touch on the GOP's flipping of a century-long Democratic seat in Texas, discuss a Florida Synagogue's suit against the Florida abortion ban, and discuss how odd it was that Rep Loudermilk was giving tours to people who just happened to show up on 1/6. Steve Bannon reveals that the 1/6 committee completely ignored Mike Lindell's information, the couple that armed themselves as a BLM rally marched past their house gives tips on gun safety, and Sam and Emma walk through a recent California survey showing that living with a gun owner doubles your chances to die by homicide and does nothing to decrease your chances of a home invasion. Next, they dive into the most Hershel Walker of Hershel Walker news, as it's revealed that the man who rants against fatherless households in Black communities, happens to have left a household fatherless. Finally, Emma and Sam are joined by Jamie Edwards as they dive into their experience organizing Trader Joe's Unite's first chapter in Hadley, MA, first looking at the beginnings of the campaign at the start of the pandemic, when, after years of falling benefits, they and their colleagues were directly faced with the corporation's active refusal to take their safety seriously, from fully banning masks and gloves at the outset, to pressure from management to ignore capacity limits. Next, they get into the more typical forms of union-busting that the organizers have faced, from Jamie being sent home for wearing a union pin to threats against workers' future wages and general disciplinary action, before they get into the success of TJU, and the roles the pandemic, a strong NLRB, and the unionizations of Starbucks and Amazon departments nationwide have all played in keeping the energy up. Jamie then wraps up the interview by covering the importance of Trader Joe's United being an independent union, especially with corporations' “third party” talking points, and discusses the future of the fight. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma take a call from Georgian native Q on comedy, Dave Chapelle, and why some people's politics don't develop, Jason from Texas dives into the special election in the Rio Grande Valley and discusses the grassroots development of the radical right in Texas, Jason from Columbus discusses Ohio's housing crisis, Ben from Worcester talks… Worcester, and Charlie Kirk gives young women tips and tricks on finding a husband.

Sam and Emma host Mark Joseph Stern, staff writer at Slate, to preview the incoming SCOTUS opinions of the week. First, Sam and Emma preview primary Tuesday, the ever-mounting success of Starbucks unions, and remind us that much like Liz Cheney, Bill Barr is NOT our friend. Then, they're joined by Mark as they dive into this “storm before the even bigger storm” moment in the Supreme Court, first covering why the Supreme Court's summer decision dumps all come down to the end of June so they can get out on vacation, and speculating on the order of the drops when there are so many massive decisions currently pending. Next, they get into the actual issues at hand, looking to the many layers of Dobbs v Jackson, including the continued obscurity around the leak and leaker's identity, what small “cleanups” we'll see in comparison to Alito's leaked draft, and the futures of Griswald and Sodomy laws. They also dive into Andrus v Texas, looking at how the Supreme Court allowed lower-level courts to overturn the Sixth Amendment guarantee to effective assistance of counsel, practically removing habeas review and other judicial practices while still keeping their institutional image intact, and explore this deferral of the Court as an affirmation to the lower courts' that they will allow the overturning of their own precedent if it aligns with their conservative ideology. Sam then gets right into the administrative state as he, Emma, and Mark Joseph Stern look to West Virginia v EPA, discussing the role of Brett Kavanaugh's baby, the major questions doctrine, in bolstering the Court's ability to undermine the delegatory capacities of Congress and the executive branch by requiring explicit and specific congressional guidelines. After a conversation on the “activist” nature of this conservative court, they wrap up the interview by discussing the future of concealed carry with New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, and the use of coercive religious practices in public schools with Kennedy v. Bremerton. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma cover the updates on yesterday's 1/6 hearing, exploring the accusation of Trump's campaign lawyer as “an agent of the deep state” for rejecting the validity of the Dominion fraud, McClain from Iowa, Bradley's Dad from LA, AND Peter from St. Paul all dive deep into handling conversations with conservative parents and the importance of finding commonalities, as the right becomes more and more the Republican Party of (some of our) fathers. Brock from Wichita talks gun control, and Fox News displays their militant support for trans people by… telling the story of a conservative family's acceptance of their son, which of course makes Matt Walsh angry when there's an excellent documentary talking about women's bodies right there!

Alright, so on to the news: Truckers warn skyrocketing diesel prices are making US supply-chain and trucking industry unsustainable https://www.businessinsider.com/truckers-warn-skyrocketing-diesel-prices-impact-industry-2022-6 A Facebook post from the owner of a Texas trucking company went viral last week after he warned that skyrocketing diesel prices could have longterm consequences for the US supply-chain. Austin Smith, owner of Iron River Express, said it has cost him over $20,000 a week to keep his three trucks running. "If something drastic doesn't change in the next few weeks/months, I promise you, you'll see empty shelves everywhere you look," Smith wrote in a post that was shared nearly 290,000 times. "You'll see chaos as people fight for the basic necessities of everyday life." Insider spoke with five truckers who warned that the industry could be at a breaking point. The drivers say they've had to get creative in recent months as they work to turn a profit while spending thousands at the pump. Richard Resek, a trucker based out of ports in New York and New Jersey, told Insider he's turning off his truck and rolling down his window instead of using air conditioning during long summer nights. He also plots out gas stations with the cheapest fuel prices. Diesel prices have surged over 76% in the past year. Last month, Insider reported that the diesel market is facing its worst crisis since the 1970s. Prices are at a record $5.75, according to data from AAA. For truckers like Resek, that means they're spending as much as $1,700 refueling their trucks each day. Nick, a trucker who owns a small carrier in Maryland, told Insider he's had to take loads at a loss. "I have the option not to run my fleet at all, but I care more about keeping my drivers busy," said Nick, who prefers to go only by his first name due to a pending lawsuit. "Drivers are the most important asset and sometimes that means I have to accept loads that are not in my favor." Nick also detailed an instance in April when he woke to find that thieves had siphoned over $1,000 worth of fuel out of his truck. The trucking industry offsets diesel prices through a fuel surcharge, which is calculated through a base rate that is usually added to a shipper's freight bill. But, Resek said drivers typically never sees a breakdown of the costs from brokers or carriers — meaning there are instances when companies keep the fuel surcharge for themselves. Shauntai Robinson, the owner of Mid-Carolina Transportation, told Insider that the elevated fuel prices will likely push new business owners out of the industry after a record numbers of trucking companies opened in 2021. Earlier this year, CEO of the American Trucking Association Chris Spear said the industry is facing a "chronic" shortage of about 81,000 drivers. Insider has previously reported that experts say notions of a trucker shortage are overblown. Wow… Sounds like things could be getting worse on the economy side of things, and I’m doubtful that inflation is what experts say it is… I think it’s probably higher. Biden points blame for record oil prices: 'Exxon made more money than God this year' https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/biden-record-oil-prices-exxon-money-god During a speech in Los Angeles Friday, President Joe Biden blamed record gas prices on the oil industry and said that U.S. oil companies like Exxon Mobil Corp were raking in massive profits this past year. "Exxon made more money than God this year," the Catholic president told union representatives at the Port of Los Angeles as the national average price of gas is $4.99 per gallon. In 19 states the price of a gallon of gas is over $5, according to the motorist group AAA. Biden also accused the largest U.S. oil company of spending their profits on stock purchases, rather than using it to drill and produce more oil. "Why aren't they drilling? Because they make more money not producing more oil," the president said. "Exxon, start investing and start paying your taxes." Here’s the president on Jimmy Kimmel talking about those evil oil companies: https://youtu.be/ZEtPV-qvLe8 - Play 13:33-14:08 Telling people what the facts are huh? He knows that we can just google this right? Well here are some facts for you fine folks: The average price per gallon was $2.40 on Jan. 20, 2021, based on an average of the leading fuel-monitoring services. The average price on Friday was $4.78 and market analysts expected it to tick up at least 2 cents over the weekend. That was a week ago. By the way, the price of gas was already going up before Russia started a war with Ukraine… Biden loves to point the finger at Putin for everything, but here are some startling statistics for you: Inflation just hit a NEW 40-year high. Overall CPI or inflation report: +8.6% since last year (and it’s probably higher than that.) Gas: +48.7% Fuel Oil: +106.7% Meat, Poultry, & Fish: +13.1% Milk: +15.9% Eggs: +32.2% Coffee: +15.3% Used Cars: +16.1% Airline Fares: +37.8% Real Average Hourly Earnings: -3% Whatever the excuse is, you know Joe Biden misses the good old days when he could just blame every policy disagreement on racism. It’s worth noting, the midterm elections are on November 8, 2022. Dropwave Do you have a podcast, or thinking about starting one? Does your church have a podcast feed for sermons?

Starbucks May End Open-to-All Bathroom Policy Due to Safety Concerns, CEO says https://www.theepochtimes.com/starbucks-may-end-open-to-all-bathroom-policy-due-to-safety-concerns-ceo-says_4528150.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Starbucks is reconsidering its open-to-all bathroom policy because worsening mental health problems among the public are posing a threat to employees and customers. Howard Schultz, the CEO of the coffee shop chain, indicated during a New York Times DealBook forum on Thursday that the company may once again reserve the bathrooms for paying customers. “We serve 100 million people at Starbucks,” Schultz said in a conversation about mental health, which he described as the “No.1 issue” his company is dealing with. “There is an issue of just safety in our stores in terms of people coming in who use our stores as a public bathroom, and we have to provide a safe environment for our people and our customers. “The mental health crisis in this country is severe, acute, and getting worse,” he told the NY Times, adding that Starbucks is providing better training and “hardening our stores” in response to the mental health challenges. When asked exactly what “hardening the stores” means, Schultz replied that this could mean the end of free bathroom access for non-customers. Starbucks opened its bathrooms to the public in 2018 following an incident in which two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia store. The store’s manager insisted that they make a purchase in order to use the bathroom, and eventually called the police on them for trespassing. Following a backlash, Starbucks settled with the men for an undisclosed amount of money. It also told all stores in the United States that “any person who enters our spaces, including patios, cafes and restrooms, regardless of whether they make a purchase, is considered a customer.” Schultz agreed that undoing the 2018 decision would be “a significant culture shift,” as noted by The NY Times’ Andrew Ross Sorkin. According to a study (pdf) published in 2019 by the business schools at the University of Texas at Dallas and Boston College, visits to Starbucks dropped by 6.8 percent following the company’s adoption of the open-to-all bathroom policy. The researchers collaborated with data company SafeGraph and examined cellphone location data from more than 10 million devices between January 2017 and October 2018, which covers a period before and after Starbucks’ bathroom policy shift. When measuring the data against cafe shops located near about 10,800 Starbucks stores across the United States, the researchers found that Starbucks suffered “large and significant” customer traffic decline compared with rivals. The traffic dip was 84 percent higher for Starbucks stores that were close to a homeless shelter, according to the study. In addition, the average income of Starbucks’ customers has dropped compared with that of visitors of other nearby coffee shops. “This would be consistent with them being more sensitive to crowding and the new visitors brought in by the bathroom policy,” the researchers wrote. Starbucks disagreed with those findings, saying at that time the alleged decline in traffic didn’t actually translate to a loss of revenue. Now, before we go, I wanted to take a stroll through my segment of, on this day in history! On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress approved the design of a national flag. https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/june-14/#:~:text=Since%201916%2C%20when%20President%20Woodrow,parades%2C%20and%20other%20patriotic%20observances. Since 1916, when President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing a national Flag Day on June 14, Americans have commemorated the adoption of the Stars and Stripes in many ways–displaying the flag in the front of their homes, parades, and other patriotic observances. Prior to 1916, many localities and a few states had been celebrating the day for years. Congressional legislation designating that date as the national Flag Day was signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1949; the legislation also called upon the president to issue a flag day proclamation every year. According to legend, in 1776, George Washington commissioned Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross to create a flag for the new nation. Scholars, however, credit the flag’s design to Francis Hopkinson, who also designed the Great Seal and first coin of the United States. Even so, Ross most likely met Washington and certainly sewed early American flags in her family’s Philadelphia upholstery shop. To date, there have been twenty-seven official versions of the flag, but the arrangement of the stars varied according to the flag-makers’ preferences until 1912 when President Taft standardized the then-new flag’s forty-eight stars into six rows of eight. The forty-nine-star flag (1959-60), as well as the fifty-star flag, also have standardized star patterns. The current version of the flag dates to July 4, 1960, after Hawaii became the fiftieth state on August 21, 1959.

We go through some survey responses and are pretty thrilled to see how many folks are with us. Miss the questions? Sign up for the next ones by calling 7704646024 after 2 am on any weekday. Donna is having some tech problems and it's double-deodorant weather. At the same time, there are new iced coffees at Starbucks and Sally is still going to the dog park. So, it's been a toss up week. Roundabouts are being built all over the place and new drivers hit the road every day (cough cough). So we do turn to a quick PSA about safe road practices before pivoting into Caddy's latest pullover. (Unrelated.) Then some folks chimed in about Airtags and how to really get away with cheating. Other folks were going to phone in, too, but they haven't been heard from since. (Fish just aren't biting today, huh?) Lastly, the largest jump in Billboard history. Or at least, in Cadillac Jack's memory of the Billboard hot 100. We just have one question to leave you with- what do you got what do you got? Let us know at 7704646024.
Sam and Emma host Jefferson Morley, editor of the JFKFacts blog, to discuss his recent book Scorpions' Dance: The President, the Spymaster, and Watergate. Sam and Emma begin by assessing the fundamentally bipartisan-and-nothing-else gun control bill, and cover the arrest of Idaho White Supremacists planning a riot at a pride event, Sarah Palin's advancement in the Alaskan senate race, and walk through the 10 republicans in the Gun Control gang of 20, and the unsurprising fact that almost half are retiring. Then, Jefferson Morley joins as they dive right into what the Watergate conspiracy was, and how it was covered at the time, including the classic representation of the incident as an example of a crusading free press taking on a lawless president, and how this discourse completely obscures the hidden hand of the CIA and how their role in the conspiracy has crystalized over the last half-century. They then dive into what Nixon's plan for this group of “Plumbers” was, originating from his paranoia around government leaks and the anti-war movement, and coming to fruition via recommendations from Richard Helms, director of the CIA, who helped provide 4 of the 7 members of the team. Next, they jump back to the actual developments of the Watergate investigation, with the slow release of tapes in the weeks following, despite Nixon's constant pressuring of Helms to stop the FBI investigation, and how this led the public to focus not on the CIA's role in Watergate, but their other abuses, from foreign assassinations to spying on Americans, as the Church Committee in charge of the senate investigation of the CIA wanted to keep it Bipartisan and away from the Nixon investigation. Morley then dives deep into Nixon's relationship with his intelligence agencies, working as a lawless president alongside a lawless CIA, as he couldn't convince Hoover to dig into domestic surveillance, making his relationship with Helms' CIA central to his power, working closely in Nixon's assassination attempts on Salvador Allende's cabinet, and providing Nixon with a relationship that he could leverage – not with the knowledge of their foreign interventions but with a threat over hidden information with the Bay of Pigs. After an extensive conversation on what this “hidden information” likely entailed, that being the CIA's role in the assassination of JFK, and the internal spy games being played against each other by the White House, CIA, FBI, and Joint Chiefs of Staff, Morley, Sam, and Emma wrap up the conversation by exploring the lasting lessons we can learn about the dangers of a lawless president that is supported by a lawless CIA. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch Dennis Prager signal out the true evil of our society: evil. Calvin from Montana calls in about Democrats' chance in the upcoming midterm cycle as Biden explains, totally unrelatedly, why republicans are good, actually. Sam and Emma dive into the 1/6 hearings, from the attacks on Capitol Police to Giuliani's drunken proclamation that Trump, with no evidence, should claim victory in the wake of the 2020 election. As Starbucks' unionization trends continue, Schultz goes on a rampage against this “secondary party” (workers) invading the Starbucks family, and Patriot Front is detained in Idaho.
