What You Get: MODULE 1: The Presuppositional Playbook Psychology The most fundamental difference in face to face, vs virtual selling is the absolute need to have the prospect be pushing for the sale. They must be the one driving for the solution. They have to want it more than you do. They have to be more engaged in the process than they are face to face. When you sell virtually the more you talk, the worse your close rates will be. When you are sitting with a prospect together, it’s easy to have the momentum of the meeting and the relationship you’ve developed together carry the sale to the finish line. This does not happen virtually. There is a distance, a void between you and the prospect that is easy for them to take your information and disappear, taking it to another advisor they know better. Presuppositional Selling does two important things. First, it structures the sales interaction in such a way that the prospect discovers intrisically the problems, pains, gains, and desire for a solution. One of the most powerful ways P2 selling works is helping the prospect see what they have not seen before. It changes context. It changes the frame. The Crucial 1st Appointment The first appointment in the leverage point that determines the success or failure of your entire sales process. Do a poor first appointment by talking too much, or ‘spilling your candy in the lobby’ and you’re doomed. Prospects won’t show up on the next call, and they will be lost and gone forever. There is an art and a science to doing the first appointment effectively and you’ll see exactly how to do it right. It starts with our 13 steps first appointment playbook. In this playbook you’ll get:
  • How to steamroll the first 6 common objections you may receive at the beginning of a first appointment.
  • How to create authority in the first 30 seconds of a first appointment, by doing the EXACT opposite of what your prospect expects…and what every other salesperson does.
  • The Credibility Transfer: How to use “borrowed credibility” to get your prospects to trust you—even if they don’t know who you are.
  • The PLI “Power Switch” Principle that flips the power dynamic, so YOU are perceived to have the power (and not the prospect).
  • The One Eyed Man principle that STOPS the prospect from treating you like a salesperson.
  • RAPID SUCCESS IN JUST 20 MINUTES: Learn how to do a first appointment in just 20 minutes over the phone, no technology needed.
  • The Decision Matrix: This is the most critical part of the entire sale…and it’s made right here. (Most producers hit only 1 out of the 4 keys to the decision matrix and it costs them sales constantly.)
  • STOP THE HATERS: How to ensure competitors, incumbents, and other ‘characters’ don’t blow up your sales with bad advice to your clients. (PLEASE, if you do nothing else, learn this critical component to stop losing deals needlessly!)
  • The “golden thread of motivation”: This is the thread that holds the entire sale together. When a prospect forgets why they called, why they are meeting with you, or why they are buying, you will fail in closing the sale.
  • The “Fried Chicken Rule”that ensures your prospect is engaged and selling themselves, not tuning out.
  • How to set ROCK SOLID second appointments to ensure you never get a ‘no show’ on your next appointment.
  • The SOLUTION step: How to ensure you are sharing just enough to whet their appetite and create burning curiosity for the next appointment to get them coming back for more, (while being 100% compliant!)

2023.06.09 17:32 Usagim00n WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH US?????

I am consistently aware of the fact that I am a woman in this country , everything else that I am comes secondary to the fact that I am a woman . Because I wake up and decide what to wear and that is being a woman , deciding to wear something comfortable and gender neutral is a political move , wearing something girly is pandering to the male gaze OR EVEN WORSE "empowering" i mean What The Fuck is empowering about wearing a skirt?? or a shirt with a little cleavage? also WHY IS MY BODY INHERENTLY SEXUALISED FOR WEARING A SKIRT OR SHOWING A LITTLE OF MY CHEST???? Wearing something Traditional is conservative and sati savitri ,,, I DONT WANT TO BE ANY OF THESE THINGS!! I DON'T WANT TO BE TRADITIONAL, I DON'T WANT TO BE AN EMPOWERED FEMALE AND I DON'T WANT TO BE ALTERNATIVE . Why!??!? is everything a woman does categorized as something? we're cute nerds or hot goths or pure virgin trad wives or ugly unfuckables for being fat or having unconventional beauty ,, and what also is this obsession with beauty?? If I'm fat I'm still supposed to be pretty if I'm skinny I'm still pretty if I'm not dressing cool i can Be Pretty with a little effort WHY SHOULD I EVER BE PRETTY? I DON'T VALUE BEING PRETTY I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT BEING PRETTY.
Men in the internet have the audacity to bitch and moan about how hard it is to be a man because they're expected to be bread winners and can't get custody of children and there's false rape allegations and women keep lying and making up shit to destroy mens lives. Let's fucking talk about why these systemic failures exist in the first place ,, because Women weren't and most places in india still aren't allowed to work , Men are historical terrible caregivers to children and most false rape cases in india are perpetrated by FAMILY MEMBERS not the girls themselves. Higher class families trying to ruin the lives of lower class men because that's still a thing :D !!!! I don't hate men , but I am fucking sick of some of you pretending that women have it better for any reason And I am so routinely dissapointed with women in this country . Especially the well educated , financially secure metro city dwelling lot of you all. Dissapointed for the way that you continue to protect and cover for bad men . Cover for your families for their "traditional" ways when they demand dowry or expect the women to eat after the men or when your brothers beat their wives or make them change their lives after marriage and you fucking say nothing to them but go on the internet and claim you're a feminist. Female infanticide is still a thing in this country, did we forget? And can we talk about how India is rated as the number 1 most dangerous place to be a woman by the reuters foundtion , literally NUMBER ONE !!! 😂🤩 WOW WE BEAT NORTH KOREA AND FUCKING AFGHANISTAN!!!
What do we have to be patriotic or proud about??? this is a country and culture that hates us. that automatically treats us as second class citizens and we just take it and excuse all this shit because in some religions we're considered goddesses and we're "allowed" to work and vote and We had a woman president and prime minister as if that says anything about the state of women in this country. Put on a pedestal and treated like dolls when we're upper caste and fair and virgins degraded and trampled when were anything else . , If we dare to have our own ideas and emotions beyond happy to serve and obey at all times. Why the fuck aren't we rioting every single day?????? We are weak cowards . Who are complacent in the system , the us who are fortunate and at the top and able to read english and use the internet we are the most complacent because we know better but this indifference settles in our bones because we arent as affected on a daily basis . The worst of it is i cant wear the clothes I want outside and my boss treats my opinion like it doesnt matter till a male colleague says the same thing which is my privilege!!! Which is nothing compared to the reality of most women in this country who are susceptible to so!much!worse! Doemstic violence is still fucking rampant !! atleast there's one thing to join us between classes and castes :D hey! we're all getting beaten up by our husbands and families ! we have so much in common !!!
I feel nothing these days when I hear about the latest woman whos body has been desecrated and chopped up by her angry lover. I feel nothing. Dissapointed but not surprised. give it a week theres going to bw another one. This violence against us , why have we started to accept it??? i see so many comments saying " hey this is the reality of women in india we must accept it" WHY WOULD I ACCEPT IT??????? WHEN THAT COULD BE MY MOTHER OR MY BEST FRIEND TOMORROW?????????
I am sick of us , our complaceny , I want so much more for us. Real justice and equality but fuck. I don't know how to get it when no one else cares enough to be angry.

The A.I. Revolution (aka Coaching The Conversion Reloaded)
In Module 1, you’ll be initiated into a revolutionary new way of thinking. You’ll move from a mindset of “closing clients” with blunt force tactics; to confidently leading and coaching their transformation between Point A and Point Buyer.
With this initial understanding; you’ll see how automation, behavioral triggers, and advanced segmentation allow you to identify and capitalize on the key moments of heightened receptivity where your prospects are most “coachable” towards the next conversion.

Empire Engineering
Most online businesses are built to win a single battle at a time; but ill-equipped to dominate an industry, let alone scale an empire.
In Module 2, we’ll walk you step-buy-step on how to engineer the tech side of your business for sustainable, exponential growth.
If you’re self-aware and energetically sensitive, you know that intentionality is everything. Unless you’ve built a powerful system that can sustain and match your vision; you’re not likely to get there.
Whether you’re in Stage 1 of building your empire; or ready to scale the sh*t out of it; we’ll walk you through the exact CRM systems you need to confidently double down on your marketing and enrollment efforts; knowing that every prospect that enters your ecosystem is well accounted for and given the best chance to convert.
Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about implementing an intelligent, growth-minded CRM that your current business coach was too afraid to show you. How to create a pro-level pipeline that gives you “real time” insight as to where every lead is in your enrollment process; allowing you to forecast revenue, identify opportunities; and finally feel like a real business. Why “lead-scoring” isn’t just for enterprise-level companies, but a must for reaching out to potential customers in the moment they’re most ready to receive it. Why configuring your sales and enrollment systems the way we show you; will give you crystal clarity over every lead in your business; allowing you to make smarter, more data-informed decisions rather than feeling lost, overwhelmed, and acting on impulse. MODULE 3
Automated Conversion Ecosystem #1 (ACE 1): The Enchanting First Encounter
Back in 2009, subscribing to an email list meant something.
In 2023. urm. a bit less so.
In many cases, it’s a response to FOMO (of closing a landing page and not getting a lead magnet). The end result; prospects are more oversubscribed and under-committed than ever.
That’s why, In Module 3, you’ll be given two powerful playbooks for creating an enchanting first encounter that instantly sets you above any other coach or course creator they may be following or considering along with you.
2 next generation “top funnel” conversion playbooks for accelerating trust, encouraging engagement, and amplifying resonance. The simple, 45 second protocol to do immediately when a new subscriber signs up that has been proven to boost opens, clicks and conversions by up to 300% How to seamlessly integrate your fb group with your email CRM to create a holistic view of EVERY potential customer in your business Why your traditional “welcome sequence” is dead, and doing little-to-nothing to ascend your lead; and what to do instead to accelerate the transformation from Point A to Point Buyer Why normal “engagement posts” do nothing but satisfy the algorithm; and how to create “ROI-Rich engagement experiences” that help you segment your list while synching valuable voice-of-customer data into your CRM. How to use Social Singularity™ to create a seamless experience between your facebook group and your email list. MODULE 4
Automated Conversion Ecosystem #1 (ACE 2): The Ascension Amplifier
The second Automated Conversion Ecosystem you’ll be working through overlaps with what’s traditionally referred to as “the middle of the funnel”.
A murky, purgatory state that’s often the longest, most confusing, and challenging to do effectively.
Many coaches and course creators have a bulk of their email list who will sit in this “in-between” state for 2, 3 or even 5 years before either becoming a customer or unsubscribing from the list.
With the strategies and playbooks you’ll implement in Module 4, you’ll help “pre-customers” cross that chasm much faster; and come to clearer, more confident, and more empowering decisions about you and your program.
Conversion Playbook #3 – Social Singularity Pt. 2 (Channels: Fb Group, Email, DM) Conversion Playbook #4 – Webinar Registration Rev Up (Channels; Webinar, Email) Conversion Playbook #5 – The Lead-Score Lift Up (Email, DM)

2023.06.09 17:32 420_scarface_420 To abstain or indulge? Thoughts please

I have SEVERE ptsd. I endured almost total amnesia(one 10 second flashback for 6 years before i recalled everything) for many years as i was brutally tortured twice in this lifetime and therefore peace of mind to me is rarer than unicorns so i use a vast array of drugs so that i dont self destruct or possibly just finally say fuck it and obliterate the people that tortured me and get a one way ticket to prison. SA too as if torture wasnt bad enough.
My main addictions are with stims, dissos, opioids, cannabinoids, tryptamines, gabaergics and whatever else helps stop the chronic distress.
Basically im either on a drug or coming down from a drug almost everyday for the last 6 years since i remembered everything in great detail. I never(excl weed) use the same drug for longer than 3 days in a row so as not to develop significant tolerance, side effects, withdrawal etc.
I was off drugs(excl weed) for 3 weeks but yesterday i relapsed on amps, opioids and alcohol and im currently in no mans land stuck between being high and coming down.
I hope this is the end of my foray with abusing stims and alcohol especially as i tend to get arrested, crash cars, ruin relationships, end up hospitalized, etc.
I attended rehab 10 years ago and they preached total abstinence.
My all time favourite drug induced state is on a combo of 2F-DCK and O-DSMT. I buy one gram of each once per month at the very most and snort the fuck outta them for three days straight and have a fucking amazing time just floating through life laughing at everything. Its total bliss for me. When i run out i use kratom at 5g's thrice daily for one week to alleviate the withdrawals from the O-DSMT as for me there significant.
I know im an addict that engages in escapism in an over the top way that a sane person would deem unhealthy.
So people tell me this. Can i continue to use my fave combo once per month or do i have to quit all drugs to get better?
Anybody else here abuse rc's and regular drugs to combat severe mental health issues? Anybody do a combo like that w/o it fucking up your life? One problem is i do feel somewhat close to relapsing on heroin after 12 years of abstinence as i can get pure afgan heroin number 4 thats uncut. Im even considering fent and zenes. I fear that O-DSMT will lead me back to that but i wonder and also just hope that i can maintain the self control to not do that.
Does a person like me just have to quit all drugs to live a healthy life or can i indulge without ruining my life?
What are your observations, experiences, insights or opinions?
I hope this makes sense as i feel all over the place today and pretty much every other day too.
Thoughts please.. Id really appreciate it. Thanks for your time..

2023.06.09 17:31 Idktbhwtf INFJs and Fearful-Avoidant Attachment: A Comprehensive Analysis

This post aims to explore the hypothetical connection between Fearful-Avoidant attachment (FA) and the INFJ personality type. It is important to note that this connection is purely speculative and not supported by established correlations.
Furthermore, the FA attachment style is a terribly complex issue that should not be taken lightly. Initially when FA was identified, it was recommended that people with FA should not be in relationships at all. The harm they could cause to themselves and especially others was simply too much. It is only recently that there has been progress in ways in healing FA. As a consequence, it is now able to be fully healed through therapy.
The purpose of this post is to stimulate discussion and spread awareness of this problem. Oftentimes people who experience FA are aware of some of the effects it has, but not all. It is wise to know the full extent with which FA is affecting you so that you can move forward from a place of acceptance rather than confusion or worse, delusion.
If after reading this post you suspect that you might be someone with FA then it is very wise to seek professional help and other resources.
I will link a really in depth video in the comments below that obviously will be WAY more helpful in understanding every context, nuance and implication of the FA attachment style. I highly recommend watching it, because even though you think you already know what FA is, the style is so complicated that you will highly likely be surprised.



Conflict Avoidant:

Strong Intuition:

Self-sacrificing Nature:



If you have made it to the end of this post then it probably means you felt it resonated with you. If that is the case then you need to know all of these things are not your fault. You are not a broken person who cannot be healed. You have had an unfortunate childhood with traumatic events that have molded you in who you are today. The fact that you have come this far with all those things means that you are strong and you are brave.
Realise that it is not your fault, but also that you can do something about it. The past is the past which you can only accept, but the future is yours to determine. Therapy will be able to help you in ways that you never even dreamed of. You will be able to have a secure attachment and for FA to not have an influence over you ever again. Good luck.

2023.06.09 17:31 Acrobatic_Weight_404 Uvxy

Am I missing something. Uvxy is soo low. With all the uncertainty how hasn't this thing been popping off? At a little over 2 bucks a share. Why would you not own 100 shares? At least as a hedge against holding voo or vti.
With credit card debt at an all time high. Mortgages at an all time high. Student loans coming back into the mix. People are going to spend money to feed their family. So which thing do you think they are gonna take off the list? Because realistically most people can't afford a 2k mortgage/rent, a maxed out credit card, utilities, student loans, and even groceries. Shit my groceries are at 1k a month for a family of 4. If they have to pay for daycare on top of that sheesh. Good luck economy.
I'm curious to see what everyone else has to say. Considering the media says we just switched into a bull market. I'm not buying the only things performing are the top 10 companies everyone else is still and has been struggling. With the select few of course.

2023.06.09 17:31 coopatroopa11 Reddit Black out June 12th.

Hey guys, We would like to ask you how you feel about joining the site/sub wide black out on June 12th. We have the option to opt in and protest what is going on, and id like to hear your opinions and if you would like to take part. Below I have posted information as to what the black out is and why it is happening! Please comment below if you feel this is something the sub should take part in 😊

Recently Reddit has announced changes to their API which, if enacted, will shut down many, if not all, 3rd party apps that a large number of Redditors use to access and enjoy their favorite communities.
Critically, this also completely guts access to Reddit for visually impaired people as screen readers are 3rd party apps.
One of the most critical changes to the API is that it is moving from a free to a paid model, resulting in expenses that developers of 3rd party apps simply cannot afford. To put the price change in to context, Apollo, one of the most popular 3rd party apps for Reddit, is looking at a cost of US$1.7 million per month to continue operating. That's a cost of US$12,000 per 50 million API requests. In contrast, Apollo pays Imgur US$166 for every 50 million API calls.
This means popular apps like Apollo, Reddit Is Fun, Narwhal and many more will have to shut down, permanently.
Even if you're not using a 3rd party app yourself, these changes are likely to impact the communities you enjoy as well, with the vast majority of moderation teams relying on 3rd party or self-made tools, that utilize Reddit's API.
Additionally, if you are a member of a community that uses bots - those will also cease to function.
And on top of all that, it paints a bleak picture of what is to come for those of us who use other tools, like Reddit Enhancement Suite and old.reddit.com.
Here's a little TLDR on why this is important.
So what are we planning?
On June 12th, we and a growing number of other subs - large and small - will go dark. During that time, you will not be able to view or post any content on BravoRealHousewives. BravoRealHousewives will go dark on 00:00 EST June 12th.
This action isn't something we take lightly.
We understand that Reddit is a company that has to make money in order to offer us a place to be the community that we are - but killing 3rd party apps is not the way to do it.
We are not asking Reddit to provide a paid service for free - we are asking for reasonable pricing for apps that people have come to love and depend on to participate in their communities.
We can't tell you that the blackout will solve the problem, because we simply don't know. But we have to try.
What you can do to support this
While subs going dark is one thing, regular users can help as well.
Reach out to Reddit via the channels available to you: Modmail reddit, comment in relevant posts regarding the API changes, submit your comments via the contact forms.
Spread the word about the changes and the consequences where you can. It doesn't have to be on Reddit. The important thing is getting it attention!
Participate in the communities that highlight this issue: Save3rdPartyApps, apolloapp, redditisfun, getnarwhal
And finally stay off Reddit completely from June 12th to 14th. The blackout is one thing, but users staying away from the site entirely will send an equally important message.
But please don't forget: Be civil. As frustrating as this is, being toxic or aggressive is not the way to go. Remember the human on the other side of the screen.
Thanks for understanding! We love our community and we want Reddit to be inclusive for everyone, while also having the best tools to moderate and maintain the atmosphere our members love and expect. 🤗

Ive taken this wonderfully written explanation from one of the mods over at the BravoRealHousewives sub. Here is a link to that post so you can follow along and see how other communities are handling the blackout.

2023.06.09 17:30 KKshilling World War Crypto Decentralization going to 0

World War Crypto Decentralization going to 0

We don’t know what happened to SEC Chair Gary Gensler last weekend, but whatever it was, keep us the hell away from it. That man woke up on Monday and chose absolute violence. And that’s bad bad news for crypto.
First, he woke up and sued the largest crypto exchange Binance for being an unregistered securities exchange, mishandling customer funds, and a whole host of other things. We’re not going to cover this today because, honestly, they are probably screwed.
The SEC’s second act of violence this week is the more interesting case: a lawsuit against Coinbase.

The Lawsuit

Coinbase is America’s largest crypto exchange, and they want to follow the rules like that annoying kid who reminds the teacher you had homework. But that has not spared them from the SEC’s wrath. For months, the SEC has attacked Coinbase for listing securities, their staking products, and everything else under the sun.
That offensive culminated this week in a lawsuit in which Coinbase is being accused with:
  • Operating as an unregistered broker, exchange, and clearing agency.
  • Federal security law violations from Coinbase’s Prime, Wallet, and staking products.
  • Providing trading securities for multiple illegal securities.

Make It Make Sense

It’s a laundry list of serious charges, but in Coinbase’s eyes, the suit is positively ridiculous on multiple levels:
  • Coinbase has tried to register with the SEC countless times, and the SEC turns them back every time.
  • The SEC reviewed Coinbase’s business when they approved their 2021 IPO. So what changed between then and now?
  • The Feds literally use Coinbase to sell their seized crypto. So, according to the SEC, the Feds are using an illegal exchange. Who watches the watchers? Apparently, the SEC.
In any case, Coinbase is excited. Not because they are some psychos who enjoy the hellish pain that is legal paperwork, but because this case will finally provide some clarity to where crypto stands in America. In other words: is it a security or commodity?
We will have the answer by the time this case is over.
Why should I care? If you’re a crypto bro, you better pull out the prayers and the sage for a Coinbase win.

2023.06.09 17:29 PridePotterz PIMI pioneer sister asked me..."Are you an apostate?"

I got a call last night from a sister in the congregation I belonged to a few years back. This is one of those overly zealous, very indoctrinated, outspoken older sister in her 60’s. She called me to confirm about the passing of my niece. This sister used to study with her, and was close to her at one point. After talking about that she went on a rant …complaining about her elders, the brothers, and how the CO is visiting and she told him how bad things were in the congregation. Still…she feels that Jehovah will fix things eventually. (sound familiar?)
Then she asked how I was doing. Then she asked if I was going to the meetings. I said “no”. She got all emotional about it… why not? This is the truth! You know it is…you were an elder at one point…yada, yada. ( I was a pioneer and very "zealous" when we used to be in same congregation)
She asked why I wasn’t attending meetings. I said that I’d rather not talk about it. She insisted...”did you cheat on your wife? Did someone stumble you? “
I said, well sister, if I tell you the reason… I could be labeled as one causing division. The elders (where my publisher card is now) have already threatened with a judicial committee; what I have done is ask questions that cannot be answered…I looked, I asked…nothing. They basically don’t want me to ask. And it is only elders I have shared this with. “
Then she asked…are you an apostate?
I stayed quiet.
I didn’t know how to respond. I AM an apostate, from their perspective. Then she asked…”are you labeled as an apostate by the congregation?” I said no.
I went on to share how the recent Splane video shows how we should not even listen to apostates. She said...”that’s right!”.
Then I said... but the bible says that we should not respond to a matter before we listen to it; how can we shut people down and not hear what they have to say?
"During Covid.... I did some research. what I found out about the organization, its history, its current policies....is enough to make your blood curdle.
I didn’t go any further. She was very nice and told me that I could always talk to her about anything.
Bottom line, I am on the elders radar and they are currently building a case against me for "causing division". I believe I have a strong defense. I was an elder for 20 years and I have their elder book. We all do. I have not been an open activist (aka apostate…causing divisions). In fact, I plan to use this sister as a witness if needed. I did not try to convince her of anything. I only shared my concerns and how my questions have gone unanswered.
I am a pomo, but I don’t want to be df’d due to family.
How would you have answered? Are you an apostate????

2023.06.09 17:27 Aros001 Andrea Beaumont as The Phantasm and Thomas Elliot as Hush: Why one works for me while the other doesn't.

I'd never really thought about this comparison before but I saw a comment recently that pointed out the two, conceptually speaking, actually do have a lot in common.
Both, at the time of their original stories, were brand new villains for Batman to face. The new hotness that's come to Gotham to f**k up his day, with a big part of the plot being the mystery of who The Phantasm/Hush is, with the reveal being...the only other new and significant character introduced for the story. Both Andrea and Tommy are retconned into Bruce's past and made very important to him (one being the woman he loved, the other his childhood best friend), with said past being shown to us in flashbacks throughout the story. And both serve as a dark reflection of Bruce himself.
With these similarities, why is it that I find one works way more for me than the other? Especially when I grew up with both these stories.
I'm definitely a bit in the minority here but I've never really gotten the hype over Hush. That's not to say I don't like the Hush story, just that Hush/Tommy Elliot specifically is just kind of...okay to me at best. Not bad but not one of Batman's villains I feel a strong attachment to or feel a lot of excitement over when he's going to be in something. I never feel the same as others when they say they want Hush as the villain for a movie or that he should have been the main villain of Arkham Knight. I could certainly believe a good writer could get something good out of his concepts, but as he is, as he was in the original Hush story, the story most people know him from and that put him on the map, he's just...okay.
But then there's Andrea, and while I don't think she really needed to appear in other stories after Mask of the Phantasm, since like Tommy it feels like a case of diminishing returns, I do still find myself a lot more attached to that character and feel like she was very well done despite conceptually being so similar to Tommy. With Hush I don't want him to be in anything more after his initial story because I didn't really care that much about the character, whereas with The Phantasm I didn't want her to be in anything after her initial story because I didn't want them to ruin what I felt like was already done near perfectly and wrapped up.
I think the difference comes down to two big things: Framing within the story, and characterization.
Both stories center around the mystery "Who is The Phantasm/Hush?", but the execution of both mysteries, the pay-off to them, and Andrea and Tommy's place within those narratives is handled very differently.
Hush, in my opinion, is interesting almost solely because of the mystery around who he is and how he manipulates events and Batman's villains to strike at him. When we get the reveal that he's Tommy, not much is added that replaces the mystery in order to keep him interesting.
Why did he do all of this? Because he resents Bruce for being able to inherit all of his parent's wealth as a child while his own attempt to gain the same was foiled by Bruce's father saving his mother's life after Tommy deliberately tried to get his parents killed. In regards to making Tommy a dark, twisted reflection of Bruce, this does work. While Bruce loved his parents, was deeply scarred by their deaths, and he'd have given up that entire fortune and more just to have them back, Tommy was willing to kill his just to get his hands on their money and hated his mother for surviving. But as the big conclusion to this big story spanning most of Batman's rogues gallery and all the manipulations and planning and gaslighting the villain had done, this motivation feels too...mundane. It's too petty.
Don't get me wrong, pettiness does not make for a bad villain motivation in the right context. My favorite supervillain of all time is Lex Luthor and half that man's plans are fueled by pure spite for Superman for daring to make him look bad by being a good person. But for all the build-up and everything that was involved this answer just doesn't feel satisfying. Even things like Tommy's mother always comparing him to Bruce or Tommy creating a new face to look like Bruce to steal his identity and fortune wasn't a thing until later stories. In the original Hush story, Tommy is purely just after revenge on Bruce for getting inherited wealth as a child while he had to wait until he was an adult.
This isn't helped by how little we really get to know Thomas Elliot and Bruce's attachment to him before the reveal.
I think one of the things that works best about Batman: Hush, more than the mystery around who Hush is, is that the whole storyline feels like a semi-celebration of Batman and a love letter to the character. It showcases a lot of his big name villains, shows Batman's connections to his allies, from the Bat family to Huntress to Gordon to Superman, marks the start of what, in my opinion, made Catwoman a genuine contender for being Batman's best romantic relationship rather than just another love interest, goes into Batman's history, from Jason Todd to Harold and even his childhood before his parents were killed, and all while throughout we're getting the narration boxes of Bruce's inner thoughts, going in on what he thinks of himself and everyone around him. It's one of those stories where if someone wanted to get into Batman comics for the first time or needed an introduction to the character (weird as it is to think that when the character is everywhere these days), Batman: Hush would be one of the ones I'd point out.
The story has a lot going for it...and Thomas Elliot gets lost in it all. We get to somewhat know what he was like as a kid, so much of which doesn't apply to him as an adult in the present because so much time has passed since then, and what we do get to know of him as an adult gets put into question once we find out he's Hush since he more than likely was putting on an act every time he interacted with Bruce. We don't even get that much interaction between him and Batman after the reveal of his identity is made in order to get to know the real him, nor does he even take off his bandage mask to fully confirm it's Tommy. He gets shot by Harvey Dent, falls from a great height, and then f**ks off until he can be brought back in an eventual sequel.
This is part of why I wasn't really that upset when the animated movie adaptation of the story had The Riddler be Hush instead of Tommy, who basically was the real mastermind behind everything anyway in the original and was the more impactful twist. He's the one who figured out Batman was Bruce Wayne, being the one to present that information to Tommy, and was the one who got all the villains to cooperate with the plan. Most important of all, I have a feel for who the Riddler is. But Tommy? He's...smart. Apparently. And petty....apparently. What is Tommy's actual character beyond "guy who wanted his parent's money"?
Let's compare all of this to The Phantasm and Andrea Beaumont.
Like with Hush, the main mystery Mask of the Phantasm centers around is "Who is the Phantasm?" but the scale is more simple. The Phantasm isn't after Batman but rather is knocking off members of the Valestra crime family and, intentionally or otherwise, is getting Batman framed for the murders.
Like with the flashbacks to Bruce and Tommy's past with each other, we get flashbacks of Bruce and Andrea's own past together. However, not only was it a past relatively more recent, and thus we get a better feel for who Andrea is since she's already an adult in the flashbacks, but the flashbacks are more central to the movie's plot and don't have a million other more memorable or iconic bits happening around them to take the attention away, in part because these flashbacks show us Bruce's own history with the Valestra mob. The flashbacks with Tommy often didn't have a lot of relevance to the mystery around Hush or what he was doing beyond the fact that they involved Tommy It was mostly Bruce reminiscing about his childhood. While the flashbacks with Andrea also served to give insight on the people the Phantasm is targeting and why someone would want them dead, Andrea especially. Even the Joker, who is brought into the movie to help spice up the climax, used to be a hit man for the Valestras, and in fact was the one who was sent to murder Andrea's father. He ties into the main plot of the mystery while all the rogues used in Hush were mostly there to just wear Batman down or throw him off Tommy and Riddler's trail.
We also get Andrea and Bruce interacting in the present, greatly aided by her quickly figuring out that he's Batman and the two being able to speak frankly to each other, and interacting after he figures out she's the Phantasm. And when we get the reveal that she's the Phantasm, her personality doesn't really change that much, meaning that while she was hiding the truth from Bruce she wasn't putting on a complete front. Unlike Tommy, who we honestly aren't sure if we know anything real about, we feel we understand Andrea quite well. While what we saw of Tommy prior to the reveal helped cover up that he was Hush, what we saw of Andrea had it make even more sense that she was the Phantasm after the reveal is made.
Why is Andrea doing all this? She wants revenge on the Valestra mob for forcing her to flee Gotham, keeping her from marrying the man she loved, killing her father, and basically ruining her life. It's a very simple motivation but the build-up to it is more appropriate given the size and scale of the story and thus that simplicity doesn't feel like a big let-down. And even more so, it makes her a good dark and twisted reflection of Bruce. A normal life upended by crime and corruption unchecked, Andrea took on a terrifying alternate identity to bring justice in a way no one else could/no one else would, but along the way became consumed by the same need for vengeance that Bruce has always had to keep himself from falling into, to the point there's nothing else for her. A sympathetic motivation isn't inherently better than a petty one for a villain. It depends on its context and how it's executed. And Andrea's sympathetic motivation works here because of the parallels with Bruce and how much of a tragedy it's written as. Bruce almost never became Batman because he was so unexpected happy being with Andrea, but the crime Batman was intended to fight against tore him and her away from each other, destroying both of their lives yet again, and ended up corrupting the woman he had loved so much, turning her basically into...well...him.
TL;DR: Despite their similarities and how obvious their mysteries are when you think about them even a little, Andrea Beaumont as The Phantasm works better for me than Thomas Elliot did as Hush for the following reasons:

2023.06.09 17:27 Dancedays Best kbeauty pressed powder to replace no7 lift and luminate powder/charlotte tilbury?

I finally found the one and only powder that works with my skin (the No 7 Lift and Luminate Triple Action Finishing Powder in shade Light) and now it's been reformulated... I haven't tried the new one but all the reviews I've seen are bad. People also say it's a different shade, more for neutral, and I have a cool undertone.
Any good powder recommendations? I have very fair normal/dry (more leaning towards dry) skin with a cool undertone. I use the powder to set cc cream and concealer and for days I just want to wear sunscreen and no makeup I put powder on top to make it not shiny.

2023.06.09 17:26 One_Competition_9660 Partition Iraq and Syria?

Alright let's get to The Chase this question is for Iraqis or people who live in Iraq but don't identify as Iraqi and Syrians
From what we can see in history every multi ethnic country created failed Syria and Iraq are perfect example today they are slowly dying and it's undeniable fact that both countries will not exist for the next thousand years so to avoid bad times we as (Arabs/Kurds/Assyrians) have to partition the land between us equally and work together to kick Iran and it's militant goons out of our regions because let's be real Iran owns Iraq/Syria/Lebanon/half of yeman and what's left of Palestine to some extend the inevitable future conflict in the middle east is coming and Iran as an empire will be divided for sure
No disrespect for Iran but y'all are the bad guys rn so change your government
I know assyrians are a minority currently but surely before everything assyrians will work to bring their people back and have a proper political movement they deserve a country the most and as of Nineveh province in Iraq is enough for assyria if you ask assyrians
In 2017 Kurds wanted a country of their own but they didn't do the right things to make it happen because they oppressed people to vote for their referendum that's why every non-kurd hates Kurdistan and when kurds asked the west for help the west told them that they are on their own when everything was going to ascend into further chaos beyond Kurdish loss of Kirkuk and other places so Kurds stopped and accepted defeat
Arabs y'all have more than enough land so Northern Iraq and Syria is not a place for you Southern Iraq and Syria and Arabian peninsula is your place
As for Chaldeans you are catholic Assyrians Arameans you will not get a country in my opinion Yazidis you are Kurds Turkmans y'all came 600 years ago to this region you have no historical claim either you go to Turkey or stay with no political goals

2023.06.09 17:25 paparegiorgio Help me understand the moneyball/algorithm thingn ans the problem with the market

my main concern is about the data used to work with. what's the player data?
where they take it from? i guess third parties. passes, minutes, shots...
there is something better than this?
if you go to detailed stats, you can see things like "shots". and you see how many where on target or out. but it's far from a relayble stat. there are very bad shoot made on target and very good shots that miss the target( 10 cm over the bar ) .
for passes it's more relayble i guess.
this is what billy bean did with Oakland Athletics as GM 2002(money ball start) 2015, see the Playoff as CL spot

after 4 years of new stadium talks wi still have no project

2023.06.09 17:25 ObjectiveWorth7572 HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO READ THIS !

RUNNING AWAY FROM YOUR URGES!!! Yes running away from your urges. That's what you have been taught in all those YouTube videos and articles you read on the internet. So first let's talk about what you have been taught till now to fight the urges , what you were taught? Hey bro whenever you feel the urge to watch porn or masturbate just get off your couch or bed and do 5 push ups 10 pull ups 100 squats , the guy would fap thinking its better than an injury . Hey bro whenever you feel the urge, go outside the house and walk, how long will you walk , maximum you can do is reaching another city or state and when you will reach home you'll be like I'm so fuckin tired let me get some relief , hmmm phone in one hand and dick in another. Wash your face when you feel the urge , why don't those people say that they don't want skin over your faces.......okay that's all now before I talk about the solution I want to tell you something ,listen Even if you still believe in those hacks or tactics just think is it actually going to work ,doing pushups ,roaming outside the house like a ghost at midnight just to resist those fucking urges. What they are actually teaching you is not fighting the urge but teaching you to just run from them. Tell me one thing , in your life have u ever solved any problem by just running from it, did you, no , then how do you solve a problem? You solve it by facing them. I read a quote few years ago which says " the best way to escape your problems is to face to them". Now you understood why you have been relapsing. So what's the solution now hmm ,very simple whenever you are alone and the moment you feel the urge like you are just going through your phone and then you hear a voice in your head which tells you to open the fuckin icongnito mode ,watch and beat your meat. At that moment just sit straight forget about pushups, roaming outside just sit calmly and close your eyes blank up your mind and then breathe slowly for at least 20 seconds and then just after that open your eyes and then either the urge would have faded away or you will feel that the urge is still there but it has no impact on you coz that motherfucker has just realized that you are stronger that it. Guys I highly recommend you all to practice this it is highly effective and it will even make you stronger than before when urges will hit you in future and one day they will fade away. The main reason for writing this, is actually because today in the live group chat when you guys were chatting and when I read all those chats I felt really very bad for those whose metal health, physical health and their whole fuckin life has been completely ruined. Somebody lost his friend but didn't felt anything because his mental health was affected by porn. Somebody who was very energetic and joyful fell into porn's trap and still fighting in his late twenties. I wasn't able to achieve none of my goals ,since 3 years Ive given my parents only disappointment. My friends yesterday when i created that 10 day challenge I had just created for no reason but then everyone started messaging me saying yeah bro we gonna accomplish it together , hey brother I'll walk with you we both got this.... Soon no time my tab was filled with notifications everybody saying hey count me in bro we got this, then I decided to create a whole community , you can even read the description of the group that everyone even creator of this community is like you. I just want all of you to be the best versions coz we are brothers... We are a Family. -Vaibhav (u/objectiveWorth7572)

2023.06.09 17:24 New_Inevitable9727 Why dont players want to play in Boston?

It seems crazy that Dame Lillard doesnt want to play in Boston even though it is his best chance at a ring.
Of course, Boston has signed plaeyrs like Gordon Hayward but when you compare them to the Lakers who are always in the mix for all the top guys they do not get anyone.
Why is this so?
Boston is a historical franchise that are always contenders yet players come out and say that they do not want to go there?

2023.06.09 17:23 my-name-is-jess My first time at the strip club (25m)

I was a little nervous at first before going there. I was expected to arrive around 8:05. That’s 5 minutes after opening. I was scared to be alone so I went to the nearest mall’s parking lot to wait it out a bit. 8:25 came by and decided it was time to go and see some strippers. The entrance fee was 10$, but I left a 5$ tip. I’ve read that they don’t really like non-tippers so I felt obligated to before actually going in. While I was in I didn’t actually get that feeling, but the doorman wasn’t there, it was just a normal girl at a cash register. She did split my 20$ into 5$, probably expecting that we put a 5$ tip, I guess? When I actually got it, it felt weird. Like I didn’t belong. There were no dancers, only a couple dudes around the bar and a barmaid. I sat down at the bar, because that felt like the only place to be. I didn’t get noticed for maybe two or three minutes so I left to go play the money machine. I never really expected to play these types of games in my life since I’m not much of a gambler, but it felt like it was the only thing I could do to wait it out and see what’s going to happen later. I put in a 5$ bill and pressed buttons, and didn't actually understand what I was doing for a while, I was up 3$ by the time I started to understand how points worked. Anyways I played for maybe 20 to 30 minutes. During this time a barmaid came to me and asked if I wanted anything to drink. Knowing they kind of forced people into paying for drinks to stay inside I just picked a Rum & Coke. It cost around 12$ and I paid 15$ for a tiny glass, with ice. It was fine for a drink but very expensive. This would be my last drink of the night.
Anyway, while I was playing with the machine a dancer came to see how I was doing, her name was Layla, a nice blonde with big tits. At that point I had gotten my 5$ up to 28$ and back down to 23$ and some change. She asked if I wanted to cash out and go for a dance so I said yes. She showed me how to cash out as I asked her that I had no idea how this worked. The machine left me a ticket to claim my prize and Layla told me it’s normal for people to give tips when claiming the prize. Sure I just won money, whatever I guess. So I kept 20$ and tipped the change to the barmaid.
Layla then brought me to the cabin section where you have to pay 5$ to get in and then each song you pay 20$. I asked if I was allowed to touch and she said yes and told me the rules and whatever, I made sure whatever I was doing was in accordance with the rules and respectful to her. She started out in her small outfit, a white bra and panties that glowed under the blacklight, and she started dancing. I really liked caressing her body, she was very soft. I don’t actually remember much details about this dance, but I touched some fake breasts for the first time while they looked very nice, they didn’t feel as nice as some other tits I’ll be touching during this night. I got three songs with her, that was enough for her to drop her top and panties. I had a fully naked sexy stranger bouncing on my lap and feeling my very hard cock through my pants, wow.
After my dance with Layla I went back to sit down in front of the empty stage, closer to where the dancers were hanging out. I believe most of them got in while I was with Layla. After a couple minutes a new girl introduced herself, didn’t remember much, but I nicely told her off because I barely just got my lap dance and wanted to look around a bit. Not long after that Yasmine came to introduce herself. I didn’t think I was going to take her to the cabin when I initially saw her, but we talked a bit and I felt comfortable with her and she was fun to talk to so why not? I went to the ATM and got 140$ (7$ fee) and she led me to her cabin. Yasmine was an Italian & *local Canadian province* girl, very nice small and small tits but I’m getting ahead of myself. She starts dancing on me, I feel her out, caressing her body with my hands. This one was wilder than Layla, she was much more dominant. I was surprised by it, she bounced hard on my lap, my cock was rock hard and her bouncing kind of made it hurt, my dick doesn’t really bend that way. That wasn’t the nice part though, I wasn’t expecting this and kind of knew I would like something like that, but never experienced this before. She bit my ear semi-softly, licked my lip, pulled my hair and grabbed my neck. She was probably around my age but yes mommy. She also simulated going down on me by getting down on her knees in front of me, looking me in the eyes and licking her thumb she placed as if it was my penis. Also during the dance she leaned back a bit too much and she couldn’t get back up, I was holding her with a hug and though she was still in control because she was so light I didn’t even feel like she was falling. She told me to pick her up to help her and we continued the dance a bit. When I ended the dance I told her about how when I was a teenager I saw videos on Youtube about pranksters or whatever making videos asking random young men on the street if they can remove a bra with only one hand around her back without looking and was telling her that I never had difficulties with that and that the trick is to use your left hand, always. I asked if I could try on her and she said sure. I got it within 3 seconds and she said that she didn’t expect me to get it that easy. Anyway, I paid for the 4 songs (which I thought were only three, but whatever, I had a great time with her).
I went back to sit down at the same spot, pretty much the same thing some girls sat down next to me to talk and ask me for dances. I didn’t go right away. One girl named Maxime, a very beautiful girl, also Italian and Lebanese, brunette, came to talk to me, also didn’t think I would be getting lap dances from her at first, even less two of them. But she was really nice, we talked for a while and when she asked for a dance I asked her if she could do a little turn around. I wanted to see if she had a bigger ass than Layla and Yasmine, she didn’t really like me asking that. Usually it’s the annoying guys that ask this. I apologized and told her why I asked that and she was very proud to get up and lean on the main stage to show me her ass. Needless to say that I went and got some money out again. Her tits were small, but firm, probably my favorite tits to date. Her ass was perfectly sized, not too small, not too big, nice hips and nice outfit. She was wearing a black strappy bottom with a nice chain around her waist with a black strap and black top. She was so hot, I asked her if I could remove her bra when she was ready to remove it, kind of the same story as before, but more leaning on Yasmine being surprised I got it so fast. She told me to remove her bra soon after, this model of bra was slightly more difficult, it’s not the typical clip, it was a slide in elastic. It wasn’t as easy and I had to look to figure out how it worked. I helped her remove her bra. I touch her bare breast softly caressing her body. She really is cuddly and touchy, I’m really enjoying her at that point. She puts her panties to the side, showing me her pussy. She starts rubbing her bare pussy on my hard cock through my pants, oh my god she’s hot, she then licks her finger and starts rubbing her pussy in front of me, she moans a little. The dance continues and I don’t remember the details in the right order, but anyway she has a part two.
As usual now, I go back to sit down at the same spot, now the place was more crowded and the main stage was actually used for dancers. I was looking for a 4th girl to take on a dance, I wanted to see how a more curvy girl would feel. I had a couple more strippers talk to me, the barmaid asked that I should order a drink because I should have a drink at this point and somewhat tried to force me to buy a drink, but I told her I just wanted to get a last dance before going. So I felt a bit rushed to get a new girl and the girl currently on stage was a nice fat ass and curves so I looked at her when she got off stage and we went to the cabins a bit too fast. I don’t remember why but she told me she had drunk a bit. This part is going to be short. She looked hot, most strippers did anyway, I took her for 3 songs, whatever was left in my wallet. She wasn’t very touchy, she was more of a dancer, her moves were average like most strippers, she didn’t stand out much really. I didn’t remember her name either. When I got out of the dance I didn’t want to leave on a bad note, so I went looking for Yasmine. Honestly my short term memory wasn’t very good while I was there and I had a hard time remembering which girl was the one rubbing her pussy (Maxime) so it was one of these two, but I could only really remember Yasmine. While walking around I quickly remembered the face of girl #3, Maxime. I asked her for her name again and told her I wanted a dance. She knew I wanted to get a dance from another girl so she told me to go find another girl, I told her I wanted her again and we went back to the cabin after I got another 100$ out. She asked if I went with another girl between her two dances and told her that my last dance was not really nice and wanted to leave on a great note. I told her that I was missing the touchy part of the dance with the previous girl and that let her know I liked cuddles more than dances which she was all for. I told her I got 100$ for 5 songs, so she put a 15 minute timer on her phone instead of going song by song, should be more time with each other this way she told me. She asked me to remove her bra since I asked her last time. Which I gladly did, with much more ease this time might I add. This dance was the best. I caressed her, spanked her ass soft-mediumly, we got very close, I could almost kiss her (not that I was allowed to, but damn it would’ve felt so good). She lifted up my shirt, her hand caressed my chest a bit before she got down to slide her soft, but firm breast against my bare skin. She again showed me her pussy, spit on her fingers, rubbed her pussy for a while, sometimes rubbing herself on my crotch. I was so turned on by her. She moaned even more this time. We were both breathing heavily and she told me she was wet after briefly feeling her pussy. I felt so good with her and was so comfortable with her that I almost forgot I was in a strip club. When the dance ended, she pointed out my huge boner that was extremely obvious showing through my pants. I wore it proudly and flirted with her telling her it was her fault my pants had a huge bulge. I asked for a goodbye hug and I might have overdone it a little. It was a pretty sensual hug. This was how my night ended, the best lap dance ever, at least for now. I’m definitely going back to see her someday. I’m thinking of just skipping the bullshit and bringing 220$, 20$ for club entrance with tip plus cabin fee and just have a 30 minutes session with her the rest. On my way home I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing by myself for having lived such a nice experience. I was also extremely horny, horny for more women sensuality so nothing happened after that. I was so happy. I couldn’t go to sleep. I think I went to sleep around 3:30 AM because I simply was too happy to even go to sleep. This never happened to me before. I woke up at 6AM, my alarm was set for 8:20AM. Rough night of sleep. Now I’m writing this on my laptop because I want to be able to relive this experience again. It’s almost 10AM. I finished writing this just in time before my morning work meeting to start my day off. I’m going to be really sleepy today. But it was worth every penny.
I put back the same shirt as last night, I really love that shirt (Henley Shirt, LTTStore.com, not a sponsor), it was still clean since I only put that on last night after taking a shower. It smells like Maxime’s perfume, it's a really nice fruity smell.
Also, the confidence and energy boost this experience gave me is phenomenal. I never went to the gym, I’ve been somewhat considering going for a while now to lose the couple pounds I gained in the last couple years that put me over 200. I now feel like I’m actually ready to get up and put in the effort. Haven’t done anything yet, but I would like to see myself with some visible muscles.

2023.06.09 17:23 anonymous_noodlesoup Not sad about death

The backstory to this: My grandpa died a few years ago. We weren't very close, but I liked him of course. I always made more with my grandma because my grandpa had problems with breating from smoking, so he wouldn't really go outside a lot.
When I got that the news that he passed, it didn't really hit me. I didn't have a reaction. My mom told me stuff like "It's okay to cry" or "You can let your feelings out, it's okay". But there just weren't any really. I didn't feel the need to cry or anything like that.
It makes me feel horrible and like I'm a bad person. And I'm scared of not feeling anything when someone that I care about even more dies.
I wanna know why I didn't really feel anything. Was our relationship not close enough? Did I not realize yet that he is really dead and I won't see him again?
It can't be the fact that I'm not emotional at all, because I do have to cry when a character in a film dies for example.
I just feel extremely guilty, because I SHOULD feel sad. Someone of my family died. How can I not be sad?? I don't understand. It also feels like I'm alone with this problem. Like I'm the only weird human being feeling like that. Because everyone I know isn't like that. At least I wouldn't know if they are
Edit: I've put off writing about it for quite a long time, and I'm glad that I finally got the courage to share this, as it's something I'm terribly afraid of being judged for

2023.06.09 17:22 breakupcoachdaniel Why most relationships today end in less than a year

First things first, it’s not just you.
Because the reasons why many relationships today are very fragile and don’t last long or do last long but turn toxic or very unenjoyable after a few years are as follows:
1. It’s easier to start a rebound relationship than to genuinely work on and improve oneself. Because of this, many people suck at working through their past emotional baggage and aren’t fully aware of how that baggage greatly influences the quality of their relationships and the kind of people they attract. 2. People greatly underestimate how much working through this baggage and letting go of/healing it will lead to transformation and drastically improve their life and relationships. 3. Many people want the honeymoon phase (which fades at the 4-6 month mark) to last forever without having to build it and without having to put in the work to sustain it with their partner. 4. Because they don’t want to put in this work (or never learned how to do so) most, if not all of their relationships are very fragile and end in less than a year. 5. The world isn’t ready for true love as it works in real life. It really isn’t. Because right now we are in a time period in human evolution where people are just now slowly learning the significant differences between love and attachment. Of the negative effects of the bad social conditioning that went on for centuries. That certain old outdated values and ideas about love and relationships are no longer viable and never worked well in the first place. 6. Many people believe that love is something that’s found and just falls into our lap. When in reality, true love is something that arises out of mutual respect and something that’s build and sustained. You don’t randomly stumble upon it like how you would find a 50 dollar bill on the ground.

2023.06.09 17:20 Andre3000RPI Yahoo Morning Briefing

An open letter to GameStop executive chairman Ryan Cohen
Today's Takeaway is by Brian Sozzi, Yahoo Finance's Executive Editor. Follow Sozzi on Twitter @BrianSozzi and on LinkedIn.

Dear Ryan,
In this former analyst’s humble opinion, you are failing mightily at GameStop and it's costing average investors major money.
Do better. Way better. This is painful to watch. You have a handpicked board of directors — mostly comprised of people you worked with at Chewy. At Chewy, you created an online retailer that millions of people love. Yet, the magic you found there hasn't fixed GameStop. Some would say the business has gotten worse!
First quarter 2023 sales: down 10.3% year over year. First quarter 2023 net loss: $50.5 million versus a net loss of $157.9 million a year ago.
In 2022 and 2021 combined, GameStop lost $694.4 million according to your latest annual report. You failed at picking a management team and developing them based on the turnover under your kingdomship.
For all his miscues, how couldn't a former Amazon exec in Matt Furlong find some form of success at GameStop? One good quarter maybe? The CFO you picked was canned in July 2022 after about a year on the job.
While I am at it, why isn’t there any list of C-suite executives on the GameStop investor page? Showing these bios are standard practice for public companies.
All of that's on you as a leader, Ryan.
The company remains structurally challenged because of increasing digital game downloads. You still have more than 4,000 retail stores open globally despite more people buying goods and services online. Your push into NFTs failed. Your move to open more fulfillment centers has arguably failed due to top line pressures that aren't going away.
Sales of collectibles — a key focus area by management — plunged 22% in the first quarter.
There is still no reason for the non-gamer to enter a GameStop store. That's a problem, in my view.
Of course, I have not created a huge business like you did at Chewy. Nor have I sold a large business to another company like you did when selling Chewy to Petsmart in 2017. I also haven't taken a company public, as Chewy went in 2019.
I commend you on putting in the late nights to make these things happen. I am a fan of heart and hustle stories.
I also don't have the vast wealth — which you earned through Chewy! — available to me, and that means I am unable to overthrow a public company's board of directors and treat a company like a personal playground. Which is what has happened at GameStop, in my view.
This bank account means you have more influence in public markets than I do, and could push around your weight. And have. Your past moves in Bed Bath & Beyond and Nordstrom — and bizarre tweets — show you are willing to put your money where your mouth is to make a point.
It's your money, and you may choose to do with it as you see fit. We live in a capitalistic system, after all.
But you are failing GameStop.
And perhaps your biggest failure is the lack of communication to the average investor community.
A series of 8-minute-long earnings calls the past two years led by Furlong, with no Q&A? Are you kidding?
Not a single investor-focused event detailing your grand plan?
I get being cryptic for competitive reasons, but you are a public company executive. Investors deserve to know about the vision for a company controlled by you personally and your handpicked board.
The average investor has placed a ton of faith in you, Ryan. They have spent hours upon hours reviewing GameStop's financials, supporting you on social media, and the comment sections on Yahoo Finance, among other places.
It's time you show them the respect they deserve. The Ryan Cohen we talked with at Yahoo Finance in 2019 seemed to be someone that would at least entertain the thought of caring about the average guy. Be that Ryan Cohen again. Investors deserve it… and have earned it by supporting you blindly for two plus years.
Note: A spokesperson for Ryan Cohen didn't return Yahoo Finance's request to make Ryan Cohen available for an interview for this piece.
