  6. The nonprofit Beyond Benign specializes in developing and disseminating educational resources in green chemistry – like how to create bioplastics, or thinking about a full product life cycle – and two guests from Beyond Benign joined the podcast to talk about it. Janie Butler is the K-12 Program Manager for the organization, and Eric Nash is a high school teacher while working as Lead Teacher for Beyond Benign. Originally scheduled to present at the SXSW Edu 2020 Conference in Austin, Texas, they discussed how chemistry and design can be integrated into the K-12 classroom, why this is important, and more. They also brainstorm ways to teach green chemistry even amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

  12. What a time to focus on GRATITUDE, huh? These weeks during the pandemic prove to be an excellent time to learn when we focus, so this week was really fun to develop new ways of finding gratitude. The podcast is in four segments, and here’s this week’s breakdown: 1: Rock Your Life with Amy: I found myself wondering about potential this week, and looking at how easy it is for me to see it in others and how hard it can be to see in myself. If we truly want to actualize our own power, how can we use gratitude to do this? I do something different in my gratitude practice to experiment with growing my power in the future, and future gratitude. 2: The Interview (12:30): Today we talk to Deanna Wheeler, Texas music artist and singer-songwriter. Deanna is a USAF veteran and a single mom to three kids, who was in an abusive relationship, faced and overcame paralysis with guillaume barre in 2018, and is honest and candid about her life and all she has been through. We talk about being un-grateful and how she hones in on gratitude in her daily life. “Whenever your soul is happy, it’s easier to heal.” Through her life and healing journey, she speaks about the integral need for patience as a part of gratitude, which I hadn’t really considered until now. “You can’t really have one without the other [patience and gratitude]. You have to have patience in understanding your past.” We talk about being patient with yourself in finding the gratitude while looking back, because it’s not always easy- in many ways. We talk too about what we are grateful for in this moment, and Deanna asks me about my own drive and where I find that. 3: Go Aff Yourself (29:40) with Jill Faulkner of stickwithit.co: This week we discuss gratitude practices and the challenges we all face right now, and we come up with this affirmation to help ourselves look for gratitude in every situation and to help us train ourselves to operate from this perspective more and more.  This week’s Aff is: I am able to find gratitude when/where ever I look for it. 4: BYOBBB(45:16) Build Your Own Brand, Biz + Brain with Bijou Finney: Bijou had an accident this week and talks through how that has affected her gratitude, her job, and everything. We discuss the impact of focus each week and the positivity and effect that has on our mental states and practices. We get into how when it is the hardest is the best time to focus on something. We talked about the uncertainty of the future, and how living through this is making her ultra grateful and appreciative of even the hardest times at work— developing a practice of being grateful for things that she didn’t know to be grateful for in the past. The power that knowledge and behavior has on our immune system, and how she had to find ways to be kind to herself and her partner and the effect that it had on her physical and mental well-being and the return on investment. And I talk about the book “Turning Pro” and how I am finally ready to fully understand the concepts in it, and are we using “pro” attitudes in quarantine. Please rate, review, and subscribe!

  13. This week, we talk to USA Sprinter Bryce Robinson about pushing back Olympic dreams in the face of a pandemic. We discuss picking up track late, when he knew this would be a career, coming back from injury, the aura of Usain Bolt, and how to stay focused on Summer 2021.
  14. In this episode of Yes But Why, we talk to San Francisco-based performer, director and educator, Radhika Rao. Radhika Rao is an actor, improviser, storyteller, director, writer, and arts educator/consultant. She has performed theater in the United States and abroad. Radhika has an Ed.D from Harvard Graduate School of Education, and specializes in creating curriculum that integrates theater into diverse learning situations for various populations and organizations. She works as a communications coach with Life Theatre Services, Leela Improv, Peers & Players, University of San Francisco, and Stanford University. In our conversation, we talked about weaving theater into every part of our lives. Radhika talks about her theater experience she had in college in India – learning Shakespeare and classics as well as new playwrights. We discuss the ways in which Radhika has always been drawn to theater. Radhika is a ray of sunshine. She talks about the ups and downs of her path but she still appreciates the overall journey. Radhika shares her experience finding Buddhism and connects that to the strength that keeps her positive and moving forward. Radhika is excited about her upcoming projects. She teaches improv and she directs plays and one woman shows in the Bay Area. And recently, she acted in an episode of the Amazon series, “Hiraeth,” available now.

  26. Happy 4/20, y'all! We're celebrating with a pack of giggle sticks, a chocolate brownie-scented DVD box and a movie musical! That's right, we're discussing the TV film adaptation of the stage musical adaptation of the 1936 propaganda film: Reefer Madness! Just hope we don't turn into cannibalistic murderers like some of the people in this movie.Before we take a hit, we go into our own personal histories with marijuana and discuss the circumstances that led to the original (and absolutely terrible) 1936 film. From there, it's a one-way trip to toke town which inspires an impromptu Alexis Schitt impersonation from Joe and an in-depth discussion of....the movie Burlesque?We quickly course-correct and praise the great Alan Cumming (who portrays no less than three characters in the film), Ana Gasteyer (Trace's choice for film MVP), Amy Spanger (Joe's choice for film MVP), a dominatrix Kristen Bell, a cameo-ing Neve Campbell, a creepy Steven Weber and Christian (brother of Neve) Campbell, aka the Human Dimple.Warning for the faint of heart: this film is patently offensive to everyone, so no PC police here! We've got jokes about race, rape, queerness, women, men and, of course, drugs (would that it have been mere heroin!). Oh, and don't forget about blasphemy: we've also got Alan Cumming as goat Satan, Jesus singing about weed and stripper angels. And watch out for those singing carnivorous clams!And if you really want to have some fun, take a drink (or a hit) every time Trace says he loves something about the movie.Questions? Comments? Snark?

  27. If you are interested in how to get started selling successful products online, you’re going to love today’s episode.  I’m chatting with Emma Lee Bates, online marketing expert, about all things sales: landing pages, selling to your email list, trends in online marketing, and sales funnels.  If you struggle with selling or you just want to learn more about how to do it well, this is the conversation for you! But, before we dive in to my conversation with Emma, I want to ask you a question: have you listened to 5 or more episodes of this podcast but you don’t have your own blog yet? If so, you are not alone! My husband and business partner, David, and I have noticed a trend among some of our listeners; a lot of you want to start an online business or a blog but you have no idea where or how to begin. If the tech required for starting a blog has been holding you back, I have great news for you!  MiloTree is now offering blog start-up services! Just go to MiloTree/BlogStart to see how we can help you. We know how overwhelming it can be to start a business if you’re not tech-savvy.  That’s why we decided it was time to help people get over the hump of getting their blog set up so they could move on to creating content, serving their audience, and developing products.  If you’re ready to make 2020 the year you finally start that business or blog you’ve been dreaming of for a long time, let us help.  Head over to MiloTree/BlogStart to get started.  We can’t wait to see what you build in 2020! Why You Should Be Using Tripwires We’ve begun experimenting with tripwires on our site, Catch My Party, and I’m loving it. For those of you not familiar with tripwires —a tripwire is a product you upsell to your audience when they sign up for your email list.  When someone opts in for your lead magnet, instead of simply sending them to a thank you page, the thank you page becomes a sales page of sorts.  On this page, you can upsell a product that is an obvious next step for the lead magnet they just signed up for.  Over at Catch My Party, we give away free party printables. We literally have thousands of free printables that anyone can download and print out.  So, if someone opts in to receive free printables for a Minecraft party for their kid, the thank you page offers them a Happy Birthday banner that they can personalize for just $5. Tripwires are an easy way to bring in extra money for a couple of reasons: It’s a no-brainer purchase for the customer. Your tripwire is an obvious next step for them. It’s passive income. You set it up once and you’re done. “Hello, money in my bank account while I’m sleeping.”  It requires no actual selling. You’re merely providing the person who already said they wanted your other products, with the opportunity to get one more thing that will make their life easier.  Using Tripwires to Train Your Audience to Buy From You If you give away a ton of stuff for free on your blog, as we do on Catch My Party, your audience might start to depend on you for free stuff. And that can make it harder to sell to them later. Whereas, if when someone signs up for your list, they get sent to a landing page with a tripwire, they can see right away that you also charge for some of your products.  The great thing is that when someone clicks the button to buy your lower-priced tripwire product, you are training them to click to purchase from you.  So, if they buy your $7 tripwire today, they are more likely to purchase your $25 product next month.  How to Write Successful Sales Emails Let’s say you’ve been blogging for a little while now, you have a warm and active email list, and you want to sell a product to your list.  If you’re anything like me, you dread writing the sales emails.  And the reason I dread it? Because all the sales emails that I get in my inbox are super long and detailed, telling me all sorts of stories and information before they even get to the part about the product.  And I don’t want to do that.  My feeling is, if you’ve been on my list for a while, you probably already know, like, and trust me, so I should be able to just write the email, tell you about the product, and ask you to buy it.  If you are truly my avatar, I should know you well enough to know exactly what product you want and need, and I shouldn’t be bashful about introducing you to it or asking you to buy it from me.  The trick in writing sales emails, says Emma, is to write the way you normally do.  If you typically send your list a nice, long, 8-paragraph email once per week, then if you send three 2-paragraph emails asking your people to buy something, that’s going to feel very off to them.  So, write like you typically do.  Be warm and personable like you always are; don’t be awkward about selling. Be yourself and tell your audience about the thing that’s going to change their life... or at least make it a bit easier.  How to Write Successful Sales Pages Have you noticed that the sales pages for online tools (such as email service providers or online course software), are always super short? Sometimes you don’t even have to scroll to see the entire sales copy.  And yet, when I go to a sales page created by an entrepreneur, I typically have to wade through scores of paragraphs, including videos, testimonials, tons of words about the incredible value this person is offering for the price, etc.  *To my listeners: would you email me at jillian@milotree.com and tell me how you feel about those super long sales pages? I seriously want to hear from you.  Emma shared that the reason for the novel-length sales pages is for the cold audience you may be driving to your sales page through Facebook ads. And indeed, if you are driving a cold audience to your products, it is going to take some space to convince them to buy from you.  That cold audience is going to need videos, plenty of testimonials, and your backstory in order to develop that "know, like, and trust factor" with you. They haven’t had the opportunity to get to know you through months of being on your email list.  For a warm audience, you don’t need nearly as much information. You need the basic information, the transformation your customer will experience as a result of their purchase, and a clear call-to-action to purchase. Lastly, you need buttons. Lots of buttons.  Don’t place a buy button only at the very bottom of a page. If I have to scroll 25 times to get to a button, I am much more likely to click away before I get there. I want a button at the top, again after a bit of information, and again after more information.  Don’t assume anyone will read the entire page.  I want to click “PURCHASE” as soon as you’ve convinced me I need it. So, add a buy button every few paragraphs if you’re going to create one of the super long sales pages.  How Much Should You Charge for Your Products? I think that setting prices is one of the most difficult parts of online business and definitely the piece that holds so many of us back.  How do you set prices? Do you set it at a price that more people can afford? Or do you price it higher so that your customers will also purchase other higher-priced products from you?  And is it true that the more people pay for your products, the more likely they are to actually use the products, and therefore, the more likely they are to personally experience the transformation you promised? Emma firmly believes that when selling products, your customer should be at the very forefront of your mind. And if you are selling something that could transform her life but she can’t afford it, you are not serving her.  Always keep in mind where your customer is right at this moment and what she can afford. Are there products worth hundreds or thousands of dollars? Yes, definitely.  And if your avatar is at a point in her life where she can afford to pay that, and it will deliver a transformation that will surpass the money she spent on the product, go for it.  But if the price is out of reach for the majority of your readers, it’s too high.  How to Think About Personal Branding Branding is a hot-button topic in today’s online world. With everybody creating personal brands, how do you brand your blog, and how do you expand the branding to cover your products, etc? Emma suggests keeping your personality in mind when developing your brand.  If you’re going to be growing an online business, you need to be present—front and center in your business. So, above all, be yourself.  Your people will be drawn to who you are. They will find you and they will stick around because they can see who you truly are. Don’t try to put on some fake persona.  Speak your truth. Be yourself. Serve your people well.  *There were so many things we couldn’t include in this post that Emma talked about.

  39. Virgil Vasquez has heard these quotes often, "if you throw, you are going to break", "throwing overhand is unnatural." Alex Trezza and himself are out to change this mindset and belief. Virgil believes that throwing is a natural motion, that anyone can learn to throw healthy. He believes this because he taught himself how to throw correctly after his 12 year career was over. His drive is to reach out to people that desire to learn how they can teach themselves to have their perfect throw. He is currently a professional pitching coach for the Minnesota Twins Organization. Drafted in the 7th round in 2000 out of Santa Barbara High School. Signing in 2003 after being drafted in the 7th round out of UCSB. He compiled a 12 year career as a professional pitcher, playing for 5 different MLB organizations, 2 stints in the Major Leagues with the Tigers and the Pirates, pitching in 6 countries, and compiling a 101-92 record over 1,300 innings pitched. In 2015, after all of that experience, he met with a pitching coach, Caleb Balbuena, out of Sacramento, CA.  After one session and the cue to "throw around a tree", something clicked and he finally learned how to throw healthy, and where power comes from in the throwing motion. He took it home with him and over the next years blended his professional experience with his love for throwing, his passion for movement, years of experience in Tai-chi, Qi-gong, and science based training. Combining it all to come up with "The Perfect Throw" and its teachings with his good friend Alex Trezza. Sammy and Virgil discuss: Why he created the Perfect Throw tool. What the most common challenge you see with younger athletes in achieving good, healthy arm actions. How does thinking in revolutions or circles help pitchers increase their velocity? His new “sprocket drill” How do you define what is a good teammate?
