The last year and a half has, amongst a few other things, upended the way we eat. We've embraced eating at home, whether it be cooking for ourselves or feasting on a bevy of elevated takeout menus. Giant grocery stores still exist, but many of us are ordering our staples online and turning to local specialty stores: specialty grocers, butchers, delis, and cafes that hark back to the early 1900s. That's before the likes of King Kullen, Publics, and WalMart discounted our food system. I like this resurgence: Small businesses raising the bar of food sourcing, and bringing it into the community.Myles and Rachael spent their careers in some of NYCs fine-dining temples; Myles cooking at EMP, Blue Hill Stone Barns, and Aska, and Rachael as Somm at the Beatrice Inn and Aska. Now they are taking their hospitality chops to a whole animal butchery and market called Kinship in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood of Atlanta, GA.Heritage Radio Network is a listener supported nonprofit podcast network.

It's common for someone to see a jar of NuttZo for the first time and wonder, ‘Why is it upside down?' The majority of the brand's nut- and seed-based butters are packaged such that the twist cap is at the base of the jar, allowing for the ingredients' natural oils to rise to the top and make it easier for consumers to stir and blend before use. The unique design is essential for attracting awareness and gaining trial, but as NuttZo founder and CEO Danielle LiVolsi explained in an interview featured in this episode, winning customer loyalty and a policy of no regrets have been the keys to her brand's success. Founded in 2008, NuttZo, which markets all-natural snack bars in addition to its butters, has become a nationally recognized brand available in over 10,000 grocery stores including Walmart and Costco. A former radio sales executive, Danielle bootstrapped the company's launch and development and has emphasized steady growth and a focus on consumer demand for high quality ingredients and customer service. A mother to two adopted sons who are the inspiration for the brand, Danielle also leads NuttZo's sister nonprofit, Project Left Behind, for which a portion of all sales support orphaned and underserved children around the world. As part of our conversation, LiVolsi recounted the creation of NuttZo and the creative ways that she won the brand's first retail buyers, why she adheres to the Nordstrom model of customer service, the reason she has turned down offers to invest in the company and why she fears regret more than she does failure. Also featured in this episode is an interview with Kun Yang, the co-founder and CEO of Pricklee. Co-founded by a team of pharmacists and launched in 2017, Pricklee markets beverages made from prickly pear juice and is described as “cactus water.” Yang recalled Pricklee's backstory, how his team is leveraging consumer awareness about coconut water to build the brand, the impact of localized social marketing and what he described as the keys to learning the ropes of the beverage business and adapting quickly. Show notes: 0:45: Interview: Danielle LiVolsi, Founder & CEO, NuttZo -- LiVolsi and Taste Radio editor Ray Latif kicked off their conversation with a discussion about a helpful Facebook Group called #OMGCPG, how global supply chain issues affected the launch of a new product, why getting massages are great for ideation and how she de-stresses and avoids burnout. She also recalled early challenges in product development, how she landed meetings with a Whole Foods buyer and the founder of natural grocery chain Jimbo's, why she's adamant about not accepting outside investment unless it's a ‘perfect fit' and why she tapped her mother to manage phone-based customer service for the company. Later, she explained why she is still regularly involved in sales meetings and why she believes that despite missteps in building Nuttzo, she wouldn't do anything differently. 44:48: Interview: Kun Yang, Co-Founder and CEO, Pricklee -- Latif sat down with Yang for a conversation with Yang recorded at Natural Products Expo East 2021, where the entrepreneur discussed the inspiration for Pricklee and its diverse team of founders and how the company is using coconut water as a point of reference for new consumers while simultaneously calling for “NOMOCOCO.” He also spoke about how Pricklee is utilizing TikTok and Instagram to target consumers in specific regions of the U.S., the brand's uses of SMS-based marketing and why building a community of advisors has been critical to the company's growth. The interview also includes a brief cameo from none other than The Beverage Whisperer himself, Ken Sadowsky. Brands in this episode: NuttZo, Jif, Pricklee

Alex Stone has details. Every year around now retailers announce they need to fill holiday positions to get through the buying rush and to help relieve staff taking vacation. But this year amid labor shortages and sky high online shopping, Amazon says it badly needs seasonal workers to help ship out products. Last year it brought onboard 100-thousand seasonal workers. This year it needs 150-thousand and it's sweetening the deal. It will pay up to $3000 in a sign on bonus for seasonal workers, $18 per hour pay, and a $3 per hour bump for certain shifts. It's not quite the 200-thousand workers Amazon needed in 2019 but Amazon was already on a hiring spree this year before the holidays. Target says it needs 100-thousand workers. Macy's needs 76-thousand. Walmart and Target are also upping their perks to bring on seasonal workers. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Aisha Ceballos-Crump is a first-generation Hispanic American who is the founder of two beauty brands, Botanika Beauty and Honey Baby Naturals, both multi-million dollar brands that are sold in Walmart, Target, and Sally. She is also a member of The Global Beauty Alliance and Target's Business Partner Council, serving as the only minority woman focusing on diversity and inclusion in Target's stores. Aisha was born and raised in Indiana. Both of her grandparents immigrated to Gary, Indiana during the steel industry boom to create a better life for their families, but when the steel industry crashed, so did the city. The entire city changed nearly overnight, and Aisha grew up determined that she would not stay in that place. At 28, and with a kid, she realized that she wanted to start her own business. She heard a casting call for Richard Branson's TV show Rebel Billionaire. She went for it, and, out of 250,000 applicants, she was selected to be on the show. This became the turning point where she decided she would do anything she wanted to do, and find a way to make it happen. Determined to show everyone what she was capable of, Aisha flew out to London to be on the show… only to be eliminated in the first episode. Devastated, she went back home, feeling like a failure, but the producers called her back for the finale and she had an amazing time. She felt like she belonged. She decided then and there that she was going to put her all into making her business dreams come true. She quit her high-paying job, put her entire life's savings on the line, and, eventually, Honey Baby Naturals was born. Aisha later founded Botanika Beauty to embrace her heritage, and, in her first year, got into 300 Target and 1,200 Walmart locations. In her place on the Small Business Council at Target, she fights for diversity, inclusion, and representation. What Brett asks: [01:01] Can you tell us about the beginning?

Car dealerships are looking a lot like Walmart or grocer store shelves -- a little bare! So you would think dealers would be looking to make deals. But Jason Wheeler, a reporter at our news partner at WFAA, found that a lot of dealers are forcing buyers to finance cars through their own credit agencies. Let's say you have cash or financing through your own institution and have a check in hand. Some dealers are saying sorry -- finance through us, take it or leave it! Is that fair? Is that legal?

Do you ever feel like you're being disloyal to your family for having your own life? Or do you feel like you're second fiddle to your partner's parents? If so, you or your partner might come from an enmeshed family: a system of relating to each other that is based on dependency, guilt, obligation and too much closeness (yes, that can be a thing!). In today's episode, I'm bringing back one of your favorite guests, Dr. Ken Adams, to talk about the important topic of enmeshment – and let me tell you, he is SUCH a wealth of knowledge! When I knew we were bringing Dr. Adams back, I asked The Adult Chair® community what you wanted to know about enmeshment and I was flooded with questions! So, I used this time with Dr. Adams to ask him YOUR questions – everything from the difference between codependency and enmeshment to what to do if your spouse is enmeshed with his or her family to how to let go as an enmeshed parent. I know you guys are so excited to have Dr. Adams back and to get your questions answered, and I am too! Listen to discover: The line between being caring and enmeshment The difference between codependency and enmeshment What to do if you come from an enmeshed family or your spouse's family is enmeshed How to manage guilt when stepping out of an enmeshed system What a healthy family looks like How different cultural norms can foster enmeshment Tips for enmeshed parents who want to change their pattern of relating to their children or who are struggling with letting go The key to recognizing enmeshment is to understand that it's a connection bound by guilt. It goes beyond being caring and even beyond being codependent to the point of obligation, anger and being accused of disloyalty if you don't follow the family system. These feelings of guilt can make it difficult to set boundaries, but if you stay in your Adult, sit with your emotions and hold those boundaries, freedom – and possibly a much healthier family overall – is waiting for you on the other side. “In those enmeshed systems, dependency is built on obligation and loyalty is driven by guilt.” - Dr. Ken Adams “Autonomy and separateness feel like disloyalty.” - Dr. Ken Adams “Sometimes outsiders are viewed suspiciously, which includes your spouse.” - Dr. Ken Adams “Both partners are responsible for keeping out intrusions”. - Dr. Ken Adams “Sometimes the guilt is a representation that you're doing the right thing.” - Dr. Ken Adams “You don't let the guilt stop you from continuing the boundaries in that relationship.” - Michelle Chalfant “It's really building up self-worth around who am I now…who am I really underneath these masks that my parents put on me.” - Michelle Chalfant LINKS & RESOURCES Dr. Ken Adams Website https://www.overcomingenmeshment.com/ Episode #256: Understanding Enmeshment with Dr. Ken Adams https://theadultchair.com/podcasts/256/ Episode #276: Raising Teens from The Adult Chair® with Dr. Pam Staples https://theadultchair.com/podcasts/276/ 30-Day Journaling Challenge - Sign Up Now (starts November 1) https://theadultchair.com/30days/ P&G Hair Food https://hairfood.com/ Or find at Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon, Target or Walmart MORE ADULT CHAIR The Adult Chair® Website https://theadultchair.com The Adult Chair® Membership https://theadultchair.com/membership/ The Adult Chair® Workshop https://theadultchair.com/events/ The Adult Chair® Coaching Certification https://theadultchair.com/certification TAC Circles® https://theadultchair.com/taccircles/ STAY CONNECTED Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michelle.chalfant Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MichelleChalfantFanPage/ The Adult Chair® Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/theadultchair/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/Michellechalfant
Cancel culture is endemic on college campuses. Every day come stories of professors, speakers, and students who run afoul of the radical left and suffer the consequences. With the frequency of these incidents, it can be difficult to keep track.The College Fix, the news site dedicated to providing a conservative perspective on news from campuses across the nation, now offers what it calls the Campus Cancel Culture Database to document many examples."If you want to know the truth, if you want to know how America really used to be ... come to the database and we'll list everything that used to be there," says Jennifer Kabbany, editor-in-chief of The College Fix.Kabbany joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to talk about the database as well as offer solutions for those getting canceled at their universities. We also cover these stories:The number of Americans quitting their jobs has reached record levels, the Labor Department says.To address bottlenecks in the global supply chain, the Biden administration announces that Walmart, FedEx, and UPS will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.The drugstore chain Walgreens announces the closing of five more stores in San Francisco because of organized shoplifting.

Throughout the years, Walmart has brought the idea of the superstore to life. Its name is ubiquitous, most Americans live within eight miles of a Walmart, and within the store, you can find everything from groceries to automotive services to custom paint production. Seriously, there is very little that you won't find within a Walmart. And, on this episode of Up Next in Commerce, Cynthia Kleinbaum Milner told me about how that competitive edge is something that Walmart wanted to lean into as it evolved into the digital era. Cynthia is the VP of marketing for Walmart Plus, Online Grocery and Mobile App, and part of what she does is help Walmart use the power of its retail presence to engage with customers in an omnichannel way, this includes on mobile, which we touched on a lot in the interview. We also dove into Walmart Plus, and how Cynthia positioned Walmart Plus different from the competition, by getting the deepest understanding of what customers want and why. Plus we got into Cynthia's own journey and how she has developed her skills as a marketer to land at one of the biggest global companies ever. This was such a fun episode, I hope you enjoy it!Main Takeaways:Going Backward To Move Forward: The world changes so rapidly that oftentimes the skills you are using now as the main part of your job will be peripheral or inapplicable in just a few years. Rather than continuing on one path doing only what you know, it might be a better long-term strategy to step back and learn in other emerging areas to make yourself more well-rounded. Even if you have to make a lateral or backward move right now, in the long run you will be a much better and a more skilled worker.The Full Experience, Online and Off: Walmart is more than just a grocery store for those who go to physical locations. Naturally, the online experience had to be more than just one kind of shopping experience as well. Creating an app that makes the entire experience of shopping better, has to be the goal. Whether that means bringing in scan and go features to use in-store, or an endless aisle to shop from online, or building in additional services like financial help and delivery, there has to be more to your app so that you are providing customers with the ideal experience.Making Membership Worth It: Too often, brands have membership programs that have one or two benefits that customers use every once in a while at best. But if you're going to have a membership model, you want to make it worthwhile for customers and the business.

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING:“Without a doubt, the highest value-to-cost ratio I've taken advantage of in the last year is the Founders podcast premium feed. Tap into eons of knowledge and experiences, condensed into digestible portions. Highly, highly recommend. “Uniquely outstanding. No fluff and all substance. David does an outstanding job summarizing these biographies and hones in on the elements that make his subjects so unique among entrepreneurs. I particularly enjoy that he focuses on both the founder's positive and negative characteristics as a way of highlighting things to mimic and avoid.”“I just paid for my first premium podcast subscription for Founders podcast. Learning from those who came before us is one of the highest value ways to invest time. David does his homework and exponentially improves my efficiency by focusing on the most valuable lessons.”“I haven't found a better return on my time and money than your podcast for inspiration and time-tested wisdom to help me on my journey.“I've now listened to every episode. From this knowledge I've doubled my business to $500k a year. Love your passion and recommend your podcast to everyone.”“Founders is the only podcast I pay for and it's worth 100x the cost.”“I have listened to many podcasts on entrepreneurship (HIBT, Masters of Scale, etc.) and find Founders to be consistently more helpful than any other entrepreneurship podcast. David is a craftsperson, he carefully reads biographies of founders, distills the most important anecdotes and themes from their life, and draws commonalities across lives. David's focus is rightfully not on teaching you a formula to succeed but on constantly pushing you to think different.”“I highly highly recommend this podcast. Holy cow. I've been binge listening to these and you start to see patterns across all these incredible humans.”Listening to your podcast has changed my life and that is not a statement I make often.“After one episode I quickly joined the Misfit feed. Love the insight and thoughts shared along the way. David loves what he does and it shines through on the podcast. Definitely my go-to podcast now.”“It is worth every penny. I cannot put into words how fantastic this podcast is. Just stop reading this and get the full access.”“Personally it's one of my top 3 favorite podcasts. If you're into business and startups and technology, this is for you. David covers good books and I've come to really appreciate his perspective. Can't say enough good things.”“I quickly subscribed and it's honestly been the best money I've spent all year. It has inspired me to read biographies. Highly recommend.”“This is the most inspirational and best business podcast out there. David has inspired me to focus on biographies rather than general business books. I'm addicted.”“Anyone interested in business must find the time to listen to each any every Founders podcast. A high return on investment will be a virtual certainty. Subscribe and start listening as soon as possible.”“David saves you hundreds of hours by summarizing bios of legendary business founders and providing valuable insight on what makes an individual successful. He has introduced me to many founders I would have never known existed.”“The podcasts offer spectacular lessons on life, human nature and business achievement. David's enthusiasm and personal thoughts bring me joy. My journey has been enhanced by his efforts.”"Founders is the best self investment that I've made in years."GET LIFETIME ACCESS TO FOUNDERSIf you prefer to subscribe monthly you can do that here.

In 2020, they struck a licensing deal with Hatsune Miku, a popular Japanese vocaloid which opened up international sales. Their product is now available in 100 stores in Oklahoma at Oncue and Love's Country Stores and also online on Amazon, Walmart.com, Newegg.com, Ebay, and their own website.

With his laid back attitude, relaxing Southern accent, living in the suburbia of suburbia, wearing the same clothes for days in a row, while eating a grilled cheese (and Applebee's) - it's the reality check we all need. The joy is the time spent with his family and none of the “bells and whistles” that come with fame. Walker talks about life as a father of 6, how unexpected the success and attention for “Fancy Like” has been and the larger than life “stage” of social media. He shares that the most fun has been sharing the success with his family, especially his teenage daughter who made the viral TikTok video with him on a whim one day when she just needed to dance! Walker also openly shares about his sobriety journey, how AA meetings have saved his life countless times and the difficult loss of his daughter, Oakleigh.
