Introduction 0:00
Welcome to the #PirateBroadcast™, where we interview #interestingpeople doing #interestingthings. Where you can expand your connections, your community, #kindnessiscool and #smilesarefree. Let’s get this party started.

Russ Johns 0:18
I cut you off so rudely, we were in the middle of a conversation.

Michelle Harwood Lange 0:21
You're good. You're good. Game time.

Russ Johns 0:25
So today's a beautiful day for a #PirateBroadcast™ where #kindnessiscool, #smilesarefree. And we're gonna have a few to share today. I'm sure with Michelle, how are you doing, my friend?

Michelle Harwood Lange 0:37
I'm doing great, how are you?

Russ Johns 0:39
I'm better than average, you know.

Michelle Harwood Lange 0:42
That's good.

Russ Johns 0:43
I get up to be better than average, because it's so boring to be normal.

Michelle Harwood Lange 0:49
Yeah, I know who wants to live inside that screen. Speaking of not living inside squares. I'm not either because I came dressed for the occasion. We're here to party people.

Russ Johns 1:01
We are here to party.

Michelle Harwood Lange 1:03
We are and you know, me, I'm going to aim for that whatever way I need to just to create an increase in one's vibrations and find the good in life.

Russ Johns 1:10
Oh, fantastic. I love that. You know, it's been really an interesting year for a lot of people. And you're already a pirate. So you know, the process, you know the adventure that we're going down. So it's really about how do you add value to the community? And how do we add a little bit of interest and a little bit of exciting news for people to think about and get inspired by? And so what's been inspiring you today? What's been inspiring you, Michelle?

Michelle Harwood Lange 1:46
Actually, um, my #inspiration today, when I really think about it top of mind was, you know, being on the show, and I actually, what inspires me was what you've been doing here at the #PirateBroadcast™. I've watched you throughout the year and I'm like, you know, you show up, you consistently show up, you're here celebrating people, and what they do, and it's an action packed, 30 minute show where it's value adding and I love that you do it. And I remember when we chatted, you said, you know you're going to come back, I says well, I've already been on you like us as well, if you want me to come back on. And the only premise for me was, well, I just want to celebrate you. And I sincerely mean it. Because you I think in a digital age, you know, what we put out there has to be something that connects to individuals that gives them a sense of wellness and well being and, and fun and kindness. And you know, it's like you say #kindnessiscool, #smilesarefree . Yeah, that alone in that phrase there when you really really think about is very such an exciting way to increase your vibrations. And how do we create that moment where everybody is following that culture of being kind and smiling. And those two simple acts, you know, and in the fact that you stand for that. And my take is kindness grows kindness. So I'm like, Yay, and to celebrate you, mate. It's It's an honor to be here and talk about what you've done. And how you give back and, and like I said, in a digital age, it's very important. You don't know what somebody's going through. And you don't know what the content is that you create, how in every moment even though it might not be live, right when you are on that at some point, what you've created is out there. Yeah. And the atmosphere, and somebody will need the message that you are presenting, either because of something that you see it or the guests that you brought on board. So for me, it's I want to celebrate you a year. You know, what is something that you in, in all the guests that you've had this year? What has inspired you? What has given you the impetus to like, say to yourself, I want to keep doing this? I love what I do.

Russ Johns 4:12
Yeah, thank you for saying that. I really truly appreciate that. And I have to share, I got to give a shout out to Gabriel because Gabriel is someone that continues to inspire me and grow. And he and I had a conversation. And I'm sure it's been over a year now. And he wasn't sure what he was going to do. He was like, okay, feeling it out, trying to figure out okay, what's this online thing about? And you know, he's actually a writer, he likes to write and he goes, I could probably get into this online thing. And it was really about our conversation. We sat there and talked a couple hours. And just watching Gabriel and his show and it grow his he had, he had Judy Fox on last night. And it was a great show great conversation and a lot of interaction. And he's just grown it to a point where he's, developed his own community, and a lot of interaction. And it's amazing. And it's just inspiring to see individuals like that continue to expand and grow. And the #PirateBroadcast™ is an experiment, you know, it's like, okay, how easy is it for the guests to get on? How can we follow up? How can... Tracie is the producer of the show, she produces the show and takes care of everything for me. Melanie helps me on on the office work, and she supports the organization. And now I'm producing more shows for other people from the #PirateSyndicate™. So that is growing. In 2021, that's going to be expanding, I got multiple shows planned and programmed. And it's just a matter of being able to balance my time now with other interests and making sure that everything is in place. But Gabriel says love the message of kindness and compassion every day. And it's absolutely important for us to realize that we all have a gift. We all have a message. And we just need to continue to share that message and inspire others, you know, teach by example.

Michelle Harwood Lange 6:42
Yep, I'm believing that teaching by example, living and walking into what you speak, it's really important. I think that you're one of the most genuine, authentic people in what you bring to this platform here on LinkedIn and in YouTube. And, guys, if you're out there listening, if you're not following the broadcast, you need to connect with it, subscribe, do what you need to do. This is a shout out for us, not for me. I'm not here to talk about what it is that I do, what I'm great at. I'm here to celebrate him, that I'm good at doing. If you haven't connected with Russ, please come meet with him. If you've got an idea of something that you need to do that he can help produce, connect with him guys. He is a soul heart person. Truly he is. And in my interactions with you. I have never, at any point, not had a great sense of who you are as a person. And you really do...you really are the person who personifies, you know, #kindnessiscool. For you. It's like, this is the way I picture you. I'm gonna go on a blurb here for a second, you'll have a great bottle of whiskey or gin that when it goes down, it's really smooth. And that kindness for you, that smoothness, that fuel, that's you. In a nutshell, it's a very smooth, it's very real, it's genuine, it's authentic. It's, you know, it's great to throw out all these words. But for me, I'm not throwing them out because it is really who you are. And any interaction I've had with you, it's never been nothing but that, so people, if you want to connect with us, you need to because he is the man who personifies what he speaks about in his journey, you can catch on YouTube for the #PirateBroadcast™. The question I have is...I have many questions, I always do is, is there a guest that that any given moment this year, that besides Gabriel Leal, who does really a great job of being consistent and showing up and following his dream and his purpose and his patient, that you felt connected to that at some point this year, inspired you to just go you know, I'm just gonna land this. I'm going to keep landing this. Out of all of your guests, was it was the one that stood out particularly for you this year?

Russ Johns 9:09
It's almost like playing Legos. Michelle, it's each one has its own unique value and purpose and #inspiration to me. And the fact that people show up every day and very few times in over 320 episodes now. I think 322 episodes. You're 323. And in each and every day, people show up and inspire something about the day. And that's why I, you know, I'm a night person by just natural ability. You know, it's like, I like being up late at night and I like hanging out and being years of music and playing music late at night. It's just the way it might be. Body seemed to work. And getting up every day and being inspired by people showing up sharing their message, having these conversations is just to me, it's a gift, it's just, it just makes my day, it just infuses a little #gratitude and says, you know, we are here, we are doing something, this is a message that we can share with people. So it's just an ongoing, it's just like a flywheel. You know, once it starts, it's just going to keep going, and we're just going to add to it. And we're going to add a few more people to the community. And now I'm thinking in 2021, it's like, how can I take the people that are really interested in having this conversation and being part of this community? And how can I reward people for, you know, endorsing and supporting and sharing and, and caring about each other. And so that's one of my major goals in 2021, is to figure that out and get something in place that we can actually grow the community a little bit more.

Michelle Harwood Lange 11:12
I think it's really important. I think that's a good point.

Russ Johns 11:16
Well, and after 2020, and, you know, the isolation that a lot of people are feeling and, you know, mental health is an issue, you know, there's a lot of isolation going on. Reaching out is key. And it's really critical for our stability as humanity, to be able to make sure that we have a support system in place, and people we can talk to, and it's, I think it's key to our online, humility. You know, just keep ourselves humble that, hey, we don't have control over everything. You know, we don't have it all figured out. We don't help however, we can continue to show up every day, and do something important for others.

Michelle Harwood Lange 12:06
Yeah, I think that's important and coming together. I mean, we've seen that theme throughout the year, about coming together in sort of, like joining hands across borders to support each other and be able to show up and connect with our humanity. You know, have compassion, understanding and kindness and forgiveness and know that we're all in this together, we're all experiencing at different levels. And how do we let go of our selves in a selfless way, so that others know that they're not left behind? You know, it's like the Lilo and Stitch ohana. No one gets left behind or forgotten. And I think there's a lot of people out there there might feel like they're forgotten. In all of this, and I love what you do, to show up here on the platform to remind people, they're not forgotten, then there's somebody out there that's taking a stand for them. And building communities. You know, utilizing media in a positive way is a great way to do it. You know, building communities that where there's the same minded people who come together and help each other and support each other and give that embrace that love and kindness and a smile because sometimes all it takes is just a smile, to just make a difference.

Russ Johns 13:34
It makes a huge difference in a lot of people's lives. And and just being able to, to have some place to say, oh, I know I can get an injection of positivity here.

Michelle Harwood Lange 13:47
Yes.

Russ Johns 13:48
I could just turn on the #PirateBroadcast™. I know I'm gonna be inspired by something.

Michelle Harwood Lange 13:53
I like that. The injection of positivity. Come spike your vibrations with the Pirate show?

Russ Johns 14:02
Yes, absolutely. And I want to shout out a couple of people here. Sure. Kenyatta is here. Thank you so much for the she's saying the pirate tonight on the pirate broadcast. Thank you so much. Glenda is here. Thank you so much. Good morning. And then Kenyatta says, Yeah, Russ, I agree with you about Gabriel Edward Leal. Much love to both of you. Thank you so much. It's fantastic. Pete Johns says, Hey, folks, hope you're doing well. Gabriel says yes Kenyatta. It's wonderful community that has helped me grow. He's just doing so much. Angie is here. Love you being here and everything that's going on in the world. Tracie, there's Tracie. She's amazing. She's helps me every day with the show and everything going on around that. Gabriel says he's a great bottle of scotch.

Michelle Harwood Lange 15:00
isn't he? He's aged well. He's smooth. And he's just the right kind of head that you need. I agree.

Russ Johns 15:10
Talking to Sarah Elkins here a while ago. And I was telling her, you know, there's not a piece of my body that hasn't been broken at some point in time. Oh, and I said, I it makes me feel like I have lived life. And it's I'm going to be, I'm living a full life. So there it is.

Michelle Harwood Lange 15:33
You are going to live a full life.

Russ Johns 15:35
Yes, Episode 323. That's fantastic. Yes, Kenyatta says number 323. Art Simpson's here from over on YouTube or YouTube. Yeah. Pete Johns Happy New Year from the future Australia. The Johnses will triumph in 2021. Thanks for being here. Pete. Love you, man. Angie, that is the worst part of masks. I can't see smiles. Worse part of masks. Oh, that's the worst part of mask. I can't see smiles.

Michelle Harwood Lange 16:14
Yeah.

Russ Johns 16:16
300 plus episodes truly offers an endless supply of #inspiration.

Michelle Harwood Lange 16:21
It does.

Russ Johns 16:22
Thanks, Howard. You inspire me as well. So these are the kinds of comments and these are the kinds of interactions that happen all the time with the #PirateBroadcast™. And it's really, you know, I sometimes feel guilty, Michelle, because I can't spend more time interacting and having conversations and everything else. And the upside of doing the #PirateBroadcast™ has brought even more abundance in my life, and more ability and opportunity to help other people with their broadcast. So it's a balance, you know, it's like, okay.

Michelle Harwood Lange 17:00
Itis, it is a balance. Yep. But see, you got your wish, you got to integrate a little bit more because we're celebrating you so we get to talk about you. So people drop your comments about Russ. Down at the bottom. Let's celebrate him, share what you know and love about Russ today. And what inspires you about him. There's a question of the day we want to celebrate him. I'm not here to talk about me. I'm here to give it to him and celebrate his life and his year of 323 episodes. I'm sure you've had lots of in that 323 episodes, lots of learning curves and other areas, outtakes you have about that. 323 episodes like were anything fun or odd? Or, you know, we want to hear the juicy details about that journey of 323 episodes. Is there anything?

Russ Johns 17:59
Absolutely.

Michelle Harwood Lange 18:00
Okay.

Russ Johns 18:02
Yeah, okay. So so a lot of people know about the fact that I broke my hip this year. So I broke my hip on a Friday night. I had surgery on a Saturday, I actually. And I lost my dad, my dad passed away. So when we buried him, it was on a Friday, it was his birthday. And I was in Utah. And so after his service, I was out driving around with my son, we were out playing and taking pictures and doing photo shoots. And I actually did a show that morning, got up did a show on a Friday, you know, not missing a beat, you know, just being consistent. And then so on Friday after breaking my hip, I had surgery on Saturday, and then my son drove me back to Arizona. So we're driving back we're kind of in the mountains out of the mountains. And then seven o'clock shows up in Arizona. And I I get on the phone, I fire up my my streamyard and I start broadcasting and my guest didn't show up. So I was just rambling on you know, I'm here, I'm on high on drugs. I'm driving through Arizona and just rambling, however, the broadcast did take place and it was there. It's probably not my most coherent broadcast I've ever had. However, it was there.

Michelle Harwood Lange 19:40
Oh my gosh, you showed up.

Russ Johns 19:42
I showed up.

Michelle Harwood Lange 19:44
You showed up, see bravo. Bravo, people you need to give this man a standing ovation regardless of what's going on. He showed up, he was present to show he might not sound as cute as he does now. A drug induced drive. But he showed, up oh my gosh, that's, it's kind of funny, but not, it's like, well, it's kind of amazing.

Russ Johns 20:10
That was so 2020. And I've had some fun. I've laughed so much, Michelle, on this show, and, you know, having so many adventures, and these conversations in what it is, is, you know, there's some times where it's been really serious, and you know, people are going through some things that are not necessarily as comfortable as they need to be. And yeah, I was on the show the other day, and I was saying, Hey, you know, I have had some, I've had some nefarious adventures in my life, you know, I've wrecked cars, I've been in jail, I've been homeless, I've, you know, taken trips, I've taken time off, I've traveled the country, I've lived in a bus with six guys, making music and traveling and playing music for a couple years. And, you know, all of these adventures that we have, and all of these experiences that we take, and we become the fabric of our experience. And what we can do is share that experience with other people and our understanding of humanity and how this fits in other people's lives. And if you can use one spark of #inspiration to say, I think I could do that, that would be awesome to be able to take a little bit of time and say, wow, if Russ can do that, I can do that. And that's Yes, it is like, I'm, I'm no special person, I just decided I wanted to learn something, and I did. So that's that's what we need to do.

Michelle Harwood Lange 21:56
I think you're extraordinary. In your specialness, because when I sit here and listen to you, I'm nodding, but my heart and my soul are going I really love those. My message today. And it reminded me of something I wrote on one of my blogs, you know, the fabric of our life, you know, each thread is a person. You know, sometimes our fabric is a little torn because you know, we've gone some of those adventures, and there nefarious and we have to go mend that fabric. Because, you know, we, we made a choice, we have to take ownership and accountability of it. But how do we mend that, you know, we interweave other people's experiences as #inspiration. And we made that fabric and it becomes stronger and more resilient, and more brilliant and shines. And I'm like going, I love this conversation, because it's all about that the fabric of our lives, our experiences, and how do we share that fabric with each other so that we're strengthening the threads of our life, weaving things together so that we can create. I love that word. That's my word for here. Here's a great question. Um, that's my word for 2021 is create. It's what I'm going to be doing. That's my Top of Mind word is create. When I'm doing something, it's going to be about creating creation. What's your word for 2021? Russ?

Russ Johns 23:27
Expand.

Michelle Harwood Lange 23:29
Yeah. I like that word. Expand your mind, expand your heart, expand your reach, expand the possibilities.

Russ Johns 23:39
Yeah. Expand. That's it. And think, and here's a truth. And I'm not saying it's good or bad. I'm just saying it is what it is. You know, I've been in corporate America, I've climbed the ladder, I've been at the top and, you know, done some good things. And, you know, some had some great experiences. And I was ejected from corporate america several occasions, you know, you work so hard to be something and you know, have something and, you know, it's almost like that analogy of you are not your job, you're a person, you're an individual. So separating those two sometimes becomes difficult when you're investing a lot in an organization. And so in 2010, when I had just moved to Houston, I had relocated my family to Houston. My two boys and I were in Houston, living and all of a sudden I'm without a job in 2010, just after the recession, you know, so the only thing I could do is create. And so I continued to create and I thought, you know, I don't want to grow big. I don't want to be everything, I don't want to, I just want to do my thing, I'll do some websites, I'll help some marketing, I'll grow community. And so I'll build a community out, I, I helped build out a community of 1000 individuals, you know, doing meetings and networking and all these kind of stuff, I did radio, and television and some activities and live streaming got into podcasting. And I thought, you know, I really don't want to, I really don't want to expand. And then this year, it's, it's, I see so many people that want to do their show, or they want to have a show, or they want to live stream or have a podcast, I'm thinking, you know, it keeps banging on my door. And so I just need to accept it and understand it, that there's a lot of people that want to learn it. A lot of people don't want to do it. And a lot of people don't want it done for them. And so I have the skills and the ability and the opportunity to bring that together and expand in 2021. And so my goal, my mission in in 2021, is to help you know 100 organizations, businesses, people, do their live streaming, so there you go. And that's my expand in 2021.

Michelle Harwood Lange 26:20
Catching the vision of what the universe has been trying to share with you all this time. You've got 323 episodes under your belt, that are consistent, and no matter what people, he shows up. So this is something about you, you're gonna show up for those who are interested in in participating and what you have to offer. I think that's amazing. So you guys, you heard it here first, if you want to connect with Russ, for 2021, and you need help. He's got what it takes to help you out and he will show up.

Russ Johns 26:54
You know I'm going to show up.

Michelle Harwood Lange 26:56
Yeah, we know he's going to show up. And regardless of what's going on, he will show up, he will be there. He will give you superb service. And in a way where #kindnessiscool and #smilesarefree.

Russ Johns 27:12
Kenyatta knows this. Russ,Johns behavioral superpower is community builder. And he's true to that through and through. Behavior matters.

Michelle Harwood Lange 27:23
Agree.

Russ Johns 27:25
We've done that. Yeah. Hopefully there will be at least 1000 episodes more. You know, it's funny that you say that JD because my son goes, Hey, Dad, talk to me when you get 1000 episodes. You never get any credit. You never give me credit. Silver Fox talks is here. Yes, Adam. Steve Sims thinks you're awesome. So I'm on board. That's awesome. Thank you so much. Steve is a pirate he's through and through a pirate. So I just really think that it's amazing community here that we're here. And Silver Fox. So funny, Russ. I have some funny, we'd have laughed before. Yeah. Darleen has been on the pirate show. She's Silver Fox talks. She's been on the show. #Inspiration. Michael Baker. Love you, brother. So Michelle, I love the analogy. See, you got fans here.

Michelle Harwood Lange 28:31
Thank you.

Russ Johns 28:32
Michael says execution takes action. Absolutely. Nothing happens until you get off the couch. And you take action.

Michelle Harwood Lange 28:42
Yep, you do, you have to action what you're thinking. I mean, the universe may give you dozens of messages, but if you do nothing about it, it's not going to happen. You have to actually move past that fear and anxiety. And just do it. You know, my, and it takes courage, but you have to believe in what you're doing. And truly believe in it.

Russ Johns 29:05
Absolutely. And the other thing about that, Michelle is that Angie actually introduced me to a book called Big Magic. And I don't recall the author's name. She could probably type it in the message. But the idea of Big Magic is is that these ideas come and go. And if you take hold of your idea, and you take action on that idea, it will stay and it'll grow. If you don't, that idea will go off and go to someplace else and do something else. And I was talking to somebody else last night about the same idea. And it's really funny because you think, okay, well, I thought about that years ago. It's like, Well, you didn't do anything about it. So you didn't have the opportunity to develop that gift because you didn't take action. So if something arrives, and it lands in your lap or in your idea or your heart, you know, you have to take action, or it will just go away.

Michelle Harwood Lange 30:09
And well, I believe in it very much, very much. It's very true. You do have to take action when the idea, when the #inspiration, whatever you want to call it arrives in your lap, it's take action, take a deep breath, move past the fear. And know that your soul in your heart feel that's the time and the place to take action. And so just go out and ask if you don't know how to get it done. One of my learning lessons this year was go ask, go find help, it's okay to go ask and get the support that you need to make that happen. But whatever you do, just follow their intention, follow their intuition and go with it. And you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain, you see is a risk factor and there but, you know, what would you want more is to create that dream to a truth and real, or just go oh, you know, and lose it. And then one day like our darn just like you said, I had that idea.

Russ Johns 31:12
Yeah. And it's, it's amazing. I think I was talking to Daniel Hall and we were talking about that same subject is this idea that people enjoy helping, you know, if you ask him in a kind and open way, and not not necessarily a selfish and a savage way, you know, people are willing to help each other, I'm willing to, you know, if you ask me a question, or you ask for help, you know, I'm more than happy to contribute the time I'm able to contribute. I'm not always able to do everything all the time. However, I do attempt to give back to the community on a regular basis. And, people that know me know that. And so it's really important for us to understand that. You don't just push fear out of the way. Ask the question, do the research and find out what adventure you can go on this year. And just expand your boundaries and your your ability to grow as an individual and learn something new every day and just continue to be the better person than you were yesterday. That's all it takes.

Michelle Harwood Lange 32:23
it doesn't. It's about having that I'm not impossible, but I'm possible, and expanding your horizons and your vision to not being limited, but it's limitless. Where I'm possible, not impossible.

Russ Johns 32:40
Yes. And Russ Hedge says, thank you so much for being here. Another wonderful, Russ. Thank you, Russ, for all you do. And thank you for all you do, Russ and Michael Baker's saying collaboration and cooperation. It's a big magic here. Yes, Angie, put it out there. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Michelle Harwood Lange 33:04
I'm gonna go find me that book.

Russ Johns 33:06
It's a great book. And it's an easy read. And it's an #inspiration.

Michelle Harwood Lange 33:13
Well, everyone, you heard it here first, go find Big Magic so you can find your magic, words of wisdom. The man who's read the book and is stepping into that knows a sense of what that's all about.

Russ Johns 33:26
Yeah. Michelle, it's been wonderful having you here.

Michelle Harwood Lange 33:30
Well, you're welcome. It's my pleasure.

Russ Johns 33:33
Yeah.

Michelle Harwood Lange 33:35
I love being here doing what I said I was gonna do, celebrate you.

Russ Johns 33:41
Yeah, before the show starts. Michelle says, I'm not gonna, it's not about me today. It's about you, like, that's not a comfortable place for me to be.

Michelle Harwood Lange 33:49
I know. I got it.

Russ Johns 33:53
I don't like the light shining on me. I want to help somebody else shine the light.

I know. I know that we do that. It's easy to do that. But you know, sometimes we kind of have to step back and just go let somebody celebrate who you are, and what you do. You know, because I wouldn't have had the experiences. And I have to say thank you and with much #gratitude of my hand so I wouldn't have had the experiences I had if I hadn't been on your show. I never would have thought this year that I would have got to be on as many podcasts as I have. You know, and once that ball started rolling, you were part of that, that adventure for me and I found a place in a space that I'm okay with. And I grew into and it's like, okay, I can do this. So to celebrate somebody who took an opportunity to give back and it's not just because of you it was okay shout out to you, Gabriel. Thanks for all you did to make that experience happen. What you do is is amazing in and and to celebrate you I think is very important. I know you don't like Being in the limelight. But sometimes we have to celebrate the goodness of those that give. And say thank you with #gratitude and have them have a moment to share their thoughts and feelings about life. And as it looks, and this is a great opportunity, because this is December 31.

I know. It's crazy. It's crazy. I cannot believe it.

Michelle Harwood Lange 35:25
So the universe made it happen. I chose the date. I'm like, well, I'm on this, this is what I want to do. And this is what we going to do.

Russ Johns 35:34
Yeah, it's here. And it's and all the #gratitude in the world for you being here. And thank you so much for showing up and being you,

Michelle Harwood Lange 35:42

And everyone in the community, I love the fact that you're here. I love the fact that you show up consistently and support the pirate community. And, as always, everyone, you know, as we wrap up today, and we go on about doing our thing. And, you know, moving forward, I want to make sure that everybody understands that it just takes a little bit, it just takes a little bit of compassion, empathy, and a little understanding that we're all going through something. So, you know, just, you know, #kindnessiscool, #smilesarefree. And so, you know, just think about that. And as Michelle said, I'm expanding this year, I am growing and helping more people along their journey. And I would love the opportunity to have you support the YouTube channel, and go, like and subscribe and share it out and share the podcast out with with more people that need a little bit of encouragement every single day. And even if you just show up once in a while, or watch the replay or, you know, catch it now. And then it's it's all good. So when you need a little bit, a little bit of kindness in your life, just show up and get an injection.

Michelle Harwood Lange 37:07
Yep, I like that, get injected with kindness people. It's the greatest calculation you can possibly have because it shifts your vibrations, it gives you wellness and a great sense of living in, in health and in mentally, emotionally and spiritually. So #kindnessiscool and inject yourself so that you can can share it with somebody else. It's the one thing that's contagious. That's the best contagion that you can possibly have is kindness, and share it often.

Russ Johns 37:42
Well, thank you so much for being here, Michelle. I really appreciate it. Have a wonderful New Years. And look forward to 2021. And please stay in touch and we'll connect and have future conversations as well.

Michelle Harwood Lange 37:58
Oh, we'll have many of those, I'm sure. Thank you,

Russ Johns 38:01
