Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer Suspended for Three Games for Mishandling Abuse Allegations

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio State on Wednesday night suspended head football coach Urban Meyer three games for mishandling domestic violence accusations, punishing one of the sport’s most prominent leaders for keeping an assistant on staff for several years after the coach’s wife accused him of abuse.

The move followed a two-week investigation into how Meyer reacted to accusations that former Buckeyes assistant Zach Smith abused his ex-wife, Courtney Smith. Zach Smith was fired last month after she asked a judge for a protective order.

Courtney Smith alleged her husband shoved her against a wall and put his hands around her neck in 2015. The university put Meyer on paid leave and began an investigation after Courtney Smith spoke out publicly, sharing text messages and photos she traded in 2015 with Meyer’s wife, Shelley Meyer. Shelley Meyer is a registered nurse and instructor at Ohio State.

Trustees discussed the decision to punish Meyer in a marathon meeting Wednesday while Meyer awaited the decision.

The investigation prompted a tweet from Meyer in which he insisted he followed proper protocols after learning of the 2015 accusations. But he also acknowledged lying to reporters a week earlier when he said he hadn’t heard of the incident until shortly before he fired Zach Smith.

The probe directly centered on the question of what Meyer knew and when. Meyer said in his tweet that he always elevated issues through the proper channels, and did so with the Smith situation in 2015. That contradicted what he told reporters at Big Ten media day a week earlier: “I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light. I’ve never had a conversation about it. I know nothing about it.”

Speaking after the investigation was announced, Zach Smith said he spoke with Meyer at the time and athletic director Gene Smith also knew about the allegations.

Zach Smith said Meyer told him he would be fired if the head coach found out Smith had hit his wife.

Zach Smith — the grandson of late Ohio State coach and Meyer mentor Earle Bruce — has never been criminally charged or convicted of abuse. He has a charge of criminal trespass pending, and the Smiths are due in court next month for a hearing on a restraining order Courtney Smith was granted July 20.

Meyer was heading into his seventh season at Ohio State, where he is 73-8 with a national title in 2014 and two Big Ten Conference championships. Ohio State’s Title IX sexual misconduct policy includes reporting allegations of domestic violence made against university employees.

Violating that policy allows Meyer to be fired with cause, according to provisions placed in his contract when it was extended in April by two years. The deal through 2022, increasing Meyer’s salary to $ 7.6 million in 2018, with annual 6 percent raises. Meyer had about $ 38 million left on his contract.

Ohio State’s season starts Sept. 1 with a game against Oregon State in Columbus.

In 2009, Zach Smith was accused of aggravated battery on his pregnant wife while he was working a graduate assistant for Meyer at Florida. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

The Smiths separated in June 2015 and divorced in 2016.

Meyer is one of the most accomplished coaches in college football history, with three national championships and a 177-31 record in 16 seasons at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State, the team he grew up rooting for in Northeast Ohio.

Meyer won national championships with Florida in 2006 and ’08, but his teams also had more than two dozen players get into trouble with the law. He resigned twice at Florida, citing health reasons, first in the 2009 season after the Gators lost the Southeastern Conference championship game while trying to repeat as national champs. He changed his mind soon after and coached another season. The Gators went 8-5 in 2010, and afterward, Meyer stepped down for good.

Meyer was out of coaching for a season but was hired by Ohio State in November 2011. The Buckeyes had fired Jim Tressel, another national championship-winning coach, before that season for lying to the NCAA and university about rules violation committed by some of his players.

Since returning to coaching, Meyer’s program has been one of the most dominant in college football, and his players have mostly stayed out of major trouble.

Meyer faced some criticism in 2013 for allowing running back Carlos Hyde to return to the team after he was charged with striking a woman in a bar. The case was dropped by police when the woman chose not to pursue charges, but Hyde was suspended three games.

The Meyer investigation cost $ 500,000 and was conducted by the national law firm Debevoise & Plimpton.

Ohio State began investigating Meyer while also facing three federal lawsuits about its response to allegations of groping, leering and other misconduct by a deceased athletic department doctor who treated wrestlers and other students for two decades. The lawsuits alleging sexual abuse by Dr. Richard Strauss say Ohio State facilitated the abuse by ignoring complaints.

Since Ohio State announced an independent investigation in April, more than 100 former students have come forward with accounts of sexual misconduct by Strauss. The allegations range from 1979 to 1997 and involve male athletes from 14 sports, as well as his work at the student health center and his off-campus medical office.

Former Michigan State Gymnastics Coach Charged in Nassar Sexual Abuse Investigation

(LANSING, Mich.) — A former Michigan State gymnastics coach was charged Thursday with lying to police during the investigation into the school’s handling of sexual abuse complaints against former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

Kathie Klages, who resigned in 2017 after she was suspended for defending the now-imprisoned Nassar, is now the third person other than Nassar to face criminal charges in the case. If convicted of the felony and misdemeanor counts, she could face up to four years in prison.

Charging documents don’t specify what Klages is accused of lying about, though she has denied allegations that former gymnast Larissa Boyce told her that Nassar abused her in 1997, when Boyce was 16.

Boyce had been training with the Spartan youth gymnastics team at the time. Boyce has said Klages dissuaded her from taking the issue further, even after another young gymnast relayed similar allegations.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Klages has a criminal defense lawyer. A message seeking comment Thursday was left with attorneys defending her in civil lawsuits. The charges were announced by special independent counsel Bill Forsyth, who was appointed by the state attorney general to investigate the university.

Hundreds of girls and women have said Nassar sexually abused them under the guise of medical treatment when he was a physician, including while he worked at Michigan State and Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains U.S. Olympians. Nassar, 55, was convicted of molesting athletes and possessing child pornography during separate trials that began last year, and his sentences equate to life in prison.

Others charged amid the investigations into Nassar include the former dean of the university’s osteopathic medicine school, William Strampel, who had oversight of Nassar. He is accused of neglecting his duty to enforce examining-room restrictions imposed on Nassar after a patient accused him in 2014 of sexual contact.

Strampel was charged and later retired . He also has been accused of sexual harassment by three women, including two medical students, who alleged bawdy talk about sex and nude photos, and a groping incident.

In Texas, a grand jury indicted former sports medicine trainer Debra Van Horn on one count of second-degree sexual assault of a child, making her the first person other than Nassar to be charged in direct connection with the assaults. The local prosecutor has said she was charged as “acting as a party” with Nassar, but he didn’t elaborate. Van Horn had worked at USA Gymnastics for 30 years.

Investigators have said Nassar’s crimes were mostly committed in Michigan at a campus clinic, area gyms and his Lansing-area home. Accusers also said he molested them at a gymnastics-training ranch in Texas, where Nassar also faces charges, and at national and international competitions.

Michigan State softball, volleyball, and track and field athletes have also said they told a coach and trainers about Nassar’s inappropriate behavior.

Did Urban Meyer Know? Ohio State Football Coach on Leave Pending Investigation

Urban Meyer’s job appears to be in jeopardy.

Ohio State placed Meyer, one of the most successful coaches in college football history, on paid administrative leave Wednesday while it investigates claims that his wife knew about allegations of domestic violence against an assistant coach years before the staff member was fired last week.

Courtney Smith gave an interview to Stadium and provided text messages to former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy between her and Shelley Meyer in 2015 and with the wives of other Buckeyes coaches. Courtney Smith also provided threatening texts she said came from her ex-husband, former Ohio State assistant Zach Smith.

“Shelley said she was going to have to tell Urban,” Courtney Smith told Stadium. “I said: ‘That’s fine, you should tell Urban.’”

Zach Smith was fired last week after an Ohio court granted a domestic violence protective order to Courtney Smith.

Meyer is heading into his seventh season at Ohio State, where he is 73-8 with a national title in 2014 and two Big Ten Conference championships. Shelley Meyer is a registered nurse and is employed as an instructor at Ohio State. Both Meyer and his wife could be in violation of Ohio State’s Title IX sexual misconduct policy on reporting allegations of domestic violence against university employees.

Violation of university’s policy could result in Meyer being fired with cause by the university, according to provisions placed in his contract when it was extended by two years in April. The new deal runs through 2022 and increases Meyer’s salary to $ 7.6 million in 2018, with annual six percent raises for the bulk of his compensation.

Hours after Courtney Smith’s interview was posted online Wednesday, Ohio State announced in a short news release it was conducting an investigation into the allegations and Meyer was being placed on leave.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will serve as acting head coach for the Buckeyes, expected to be one of the top teams in the nation again this season. Ohio State’s first preseason practice is scheduled for Friday. The season starts Sept. 1 with a game against Oregon State in Columbus, Ohio.

Meyer said in a statement he and athletic director Gene Smith agreed that his being on leave was best for the investigation.

“This allows the team to conduct training camp with minimal distraction. I eagerly look forward to the resolution of this matter.” Meyer said.

Zach Smith was charged in May with misdemeanor criminal trespass. At the time of the charge, Zach Smith’s attorney said Courtney Smith had accused him of driving to her apartment after she told him they would meet elsewhere so he could drop off their son. Zach Smith pleaded not guilty last month. A hearing has been scheduled for Friday.

Zach Smith was also accused of aggravated battery on his then-pregnant wife in 2009 while he was a graduate assistant on Meyer’s staff at Florida. The charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence. Urban Meyer brought Smith, the grandson of late Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, to Ohio State in 2012. Meyer worked for Bruce and considers him a mentor.

Two police reports filed in 2015 in Ohio’s Powell County, after the Smiths separated in June of that year, accused Zach Smith of abuse. Charges were never filed.

At Big Ten media days, Meyer said he knew of the incident in 2009 and that he and Shelley Meyer addressed it with the Smiths. He was also asked about the 2015 incident alleged by Courtney Smith.

“I can’t say it didn’t happen because I wasn’t there,” he replied. “I was never told about anything and nothing ever came to light. I’ve never had a conversation about it. I know nothing about it. First I heard about that was last night. No, and I asked some people back at the office to call and say what happened and they came back and said they know nothing about it.”

The Smiths divorced in 2016.

Meyer is on the short list of most accomplished coaches in college football history, with three national championships and an .851 winning percentage in 16 seasons at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and now Ohio State, the team he grew up rooting for in Northeast Ohio.

Meyer won national championships with Florida in 2006 and ’08, but his teams also had more than two dozen players get into trouble with the law. He resigned twice at Florida, citing health reasons. First in 2009 season after the Gators lost the Southeastern Conference championship game while trying to repeat as national champs. He changed his mind soon after and coached another season. The Gators went 8-5 and this time he stepped down for good.

Meyer was out of coaching for a season, but was hired by Ohio State in November 2011 to replace Jim Tressel, who was fired before that season for lying to the NCAA and university of about rules violation committed by some of his players.

Since returning to coaching, Meyer’s program has been one of the most dominant in college football and his players and coaches have mostly stayed out of major trouble.

Meyer did face some criticism in 2013 for allowing running back Carlos Hyde to return to the team after he was charged with striking a woman in a bar. The case was dropped by police when the woman chose not to pursue charges, but Hyde was suspended three games by Ohio State.

McKayla Maroney Says She Reported Larry Nassar Sex Abuse to Coach in 2011 – and Nothing Happened

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney revealed that she told a USA Gymnastics coach and several fellow gymnasts in 2011 that she had been sexually abused by team doctor Larry Nassar. Nothing happened, she said, and the abuse carried on for another five years.

Maroney, who won gold and silver at the 2012 Olympic Games in London as part of the “Fierce Five,” said in an interview with NBC’s Dateline that she was in a car with coach John Geddert and other gymnasts when she told them, “Last night, it was like Larry was fingering me.”

Maroney, now 22, said Geddert did not react, while the other gymnasts appeared surprised. One of the gymnasts criticized Maroney for making the statement at the time and later told NBC that the incident did not happen. Dateline reported that three other witnesses corroborated Maroney’s story.

Geddert was suspended by USA Gymnastics in January after numerous gymnasts accused him of verbal and physical abuse. Geddert has not commented on the allegations.

Maroney said Nassar abused her the first time she met him, at the Karolyi ranch in Houston, Texas, which was the U.S. national training center. She said the abuse happened every time she saw him after that — “hundreds” of times. At the world championships in Tokyo in 2011, she said Nassar “went overboard.” She told NBC that she was naked with Nassar on top of her, and “I thought I was going to die.”

Four of Maroney’s “Fierce Five” teammates have reported that they were abused by Nassar. Maroney was the first to publicly reveal the abuse, in a tweet in October 2017. She said Nassar started to abuse her when she was 13 and continued, even during the 2012 Olympic Games until she left gymnastics in 2016.

Her teammates Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, and Jordyn Wieber have also accused Nassar of sexual abuse. Raisman and Wieber are suing USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee, and Michigan State University, where Nassar was on the faculty, for failing to protect them from Nassar’s behavior.

Nassar abused the gymnasts under the pretext of medical care. An osteopath, he told the girls that the procedures would ease whatever pain they were sent to him to relieve, and would help them to continue training.

“He told me he was going to do a checkup on me and that was the first day I was abused,” Maroney said during the interview. “He said that nobody would understand this and the sacrifice that it takes to get to the Olympics, so you can’t tell people this.”

Maroney said that Nassar won the favor of the gymnasts by being friendly, bringing them food when they were afraid to eat while under the watchful eye of coaches and national team coordinator Martha Karolyi. “Your coaches are just always watching you. And wanting to keep you skinny,” she said. “I would’ve starved at the Olympics if I didn’t have him bring me food.”

Martha and Bela Karolyi respond to allegations

Martha and Bela Karolyi, the famed Romanian coaches credited with bringing U.S. women’s gymnastics to world championship and Olympic glory, spoke publicly for the first time since the accusations against Nassar were revealed last fall. They said they were not aware of Nassar’s abuse, and were saddened to learn of his behavior.

Several gymnasts have said the abuse occurred on the Karolyi ranch, which doubled as the national training center, where elite gymnasts came once a month to live and train. USA Gymnastics cut ties with the Karolyi ranch in January amid the Nassar scandal.

“Any child who is violated by Nassar, it’s a crime and it’s so sad,” Martha said. “It is very much hurtful,” Martha said of the abuse allegations. But she said she was not aware of Nassar’s sexual abuse of the gymnasts. “I heard during the testimonies that some of the parents were in the therapy room with their own child and Larry Nassar was performing this,” said Martha. “And the parent couldn’t see. How I could see?”

The Karolyis have been named in several lawsuits related to Nassar’s abuse. Nassar is currently serving 175 years in prison on state charges of criminal sexual activity and federal charges of child pornography.

Could Mark Jackson Coach The New York Knicks Next Season?

Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Seven

Source: Stephen Dunn / Getty

Not much has change with regards to the the Knicks this season.

Carmelo Anthony left New York, as many expected, to join forces with Paul George and Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City and Kristaps Porzingis became the face of the franchise. But on February 6, the 7 footer suffered a torn ACL and is ruled out the rest of the season and isn’t expected to return to the court for at least 10 to 12 months. But, him being out has given others like Trey Burke Frank Ntilikina a chance to get more possessions alongside the $ 70 million man, Tim Hardaway Jr, and big man Enes Kanter.

Despite that, the New York Knicks are still the New York Knicks. They may have just won there second straight thanks to Ntilikina scoring a season-high 19 points, but they’re currently 11th in the east with a 26-45 record. The staff and players that Phil Jackson hired still loom in the front office and the most obvious that doesn’t seem to be working out is head coach Jeff Hornacek. And according to Marc Stein of the New York Times, Mark Jackson is looking like a suitable replacement. Jackson was most recently the head coach for the Golden State Warriors from 2011-2014, helping the go from 23-43 in 2011-12, 47-35 in 2012-13 and 51-31 in 2013-14. If Jackson could put the Warriors on the road to success, he could very well do the same in the Big Apple.

In other Knick news, Porzingis underwent ACL surgery over a month ago and was already spotted putting up shots at the gym at his Manhattan apartment building. Coach Hornacek doesn’t seem too worried because he’s not in any physical contact. But an even bigger problem looms at Madison Square Garden, its name is Joakim Noah and it costs $ 72 million. Noah hasn’t reported to the team since a verbal altercation with Hornacek in January.

Ways to survive 14 hours in coach

ADVERTISEMENT


Flying can be heaps of fun, especially if you’re traveling to some exotic location you’ve never visited before. However, it can also be a bit of a nightmare having to negotiate a long haul flight, especially when you’re stuck in coach. Even frequent fliers can find long-haul flights a struggle, so what hope do the rest of us have? And, some flights can be a lot more grueling than others – that’s just a fact.

Sure, it’s okay if you’re traveling business or first class, because you have all the comforts – and space – you need to get you through the flight. You can get some sleep in nice, comfy surroundings, and keep yourself entertained whenever you need to. So, if you could do with some tips to help you survive 14 hours in coach, read on!

Pick the right seat

You’ll be surprised by just how much of a difference this can make, and, if you get the opportunity to choose your seats, make sure you pick wisely. In order to maximize the amount of space you have, we would suggest trying to go for an aisle seat. This allows you to stretch your legs better, and you won’t feel boxed in by other passengers. It also means you can get up and stretch your legs while moving around for a while.

Eat something

Sure, plane food might be up there with hospital food in terms of being mostly terrible, but this doesn’t mean you should skip eating. In fact, you’ll need to do as much as you can to keep energy levels up, and eating is a great way of achieving that. That’s why we would recommend accepting the in-flight meal, even if you only eat a few mouthfuls. Alternatively, a snack which is high in protein is a great substitute – but make sure you do eat on the flight!

Remember the accessories

All long-haul flights will come with an array of accessories designed to make the flight more comfortable and enjoyable. Things like a blanket, eye mask, earplugs, etc., are essential for helping you be as comfortable as possible. By making use of these as often as you can, you can make yourself more comfortable and peaceful. Sometimes these flights can get rather chilly so you will find that blanket a godsend.

Choose your entertainment wisely

This means reading at the start of the flight when your brain is still awake, and your eyes haven’t been dried out by the air conditioning. When you no longer feel able to read, it’s time to whack on a movie. Again, choose wisely here – if there’s an epic you’ve been wanting to see for a while, get that bad boy on, as it will eat up much of the flight! Maybe follow it with something much more light-hearted afterward.

Use these tips as well as you possibly can in order to make sure you get through your 14-hour flight unscathed. You will find things much less difficult, and significantly more comfortable, by using some of the tips we’ve given. You will most likely have your own flight rituals to follow as well, and we hope you have enough in terms of tips and information to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible.

Yes, You Need a Career Coach: Ask For What You Want

2018 is the year of the woman! And, that means it is time to ask for what you want. As women are coming together to speak out about issues like #MeToo, #TimesUp, and the gender wage gap, it is equally as important for women to feel empowered to ask for what they want in the workplace. And, a good way women can practice is by partnering with a career coach.

For part three of the Yes, You Need a Career Coach series for the Women of Power Summit, Marsha Haygood, author and founder of StepWise Associates shares three ways to learn how to grow more comfortable with asking for what you want with a coach to enhance your career as you climb.

 

Practice by speaking up

For many women, asserting themselves can be tough, especially if they do not feel like they have the authority or a safe space to speak up. With the help of a coach, women can implement strategies to speak and eventually begin to ask for that they want.

One thing that Haygood stresses to women is to be advocates for themselves. Whether you are in the boardroom or having a meeting with your manager, your opinion matters and that’s why you need to speak up. “If someone needs help asserting themselves, as a coach I would give them an assignment to do so that they feel more comfortable speaking up in meetings. And, I’ll follow up with them to make sure that they’re doing so,” says Haygood. The assignments could include acting out different scenarios. Remember, no one can bring what you do to the table and a part of keeping your seat requires you to speak up and know your value.

 

Know your value

In The Little Black Book of Success workbook, Haygood and her co-authors share that it is important for women to know their worth. They write why it is key to not get your self-worth and your net worth confused. As a professional, career coaches can help you build your confidence. All that requires is an openness to exploring who you are personally so that you can yield different result in the workplace and throughout your career. In the book they also share that, “Another way to acknowledge your self-value is to actively try to increase it.” You were hired because you add value to where you are. Work with a coach to find ways to understand your worth so that you can feel confident in the workplace.

 

Ask

Everything is negotiable even when it doesn’t seem like it is. While it may feel daunting to ask for what you want, it’s essential to muster up enough confidence to do so even when you are unsure of how asking for something will be received. Haygood says, “Just ask.”

“Ask for what you want so that you can get what you need. Don’t assume that someone knows something if they’re not saying it.”

There are multiple layers to being a black woman in the workplace. There are gender, race, and wage complexities.

Coach To Change It’s Company Name To Tapestry And People Are Upset

Handbag company Coach is making a couple of changes, including the name of their products. On Wednesday, the company announced their new name will be Tapestry, Inc. The 76-year old company also serves as home to Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman.

This news didn’t hold well with many of the company’s supporters; some claimed the name doesn’t identify with leather handbags at all.  In addition to the 2 percent decrease in company shares after the announcement, folks took to Twitter to express their disdain with the news.

While the Manhattan-based company is changing it’s name, the “Coach” label on the handbags will remain. The official name change will go into effect October 31st.

Will this new change stop you from buying Coach bags? Take our poll below and check out their recent designs here.

Life Coach Offers Holistic Approach to Brand Loyalty

Most brands begin to lose loyalty because they’ve reached a level of success but stopped valuing. They start taking for granted the business relationships that got them there. Making matters worse, they stop listening, learning, innovating, and leaning into their customer or client base. Even well-known companies have been severely compromised (Sears, Wells Fargo, K-mart, etc.) because of their inability to reinvent.

People can make up their mind about you without ever engaging you, your product, or your service. Consumers can simply talk into their smart device, research your business within milliseconds, and either engage you or rule you out completely. That’s why today’s relationships with clients, customers, and employees are more critical than ever before in the volatile nature of business.

D. Ivan Young is a holistic life and relationship coach who offers brands advice on how to retain customer loyalty.

“Inasmuch as this applies to startups, it is especially true for well-established and long-standing brands that tend to take their place in their market for granted. A business relationship miscarriage, be it internal or external, cannot only significantly hinder growth but potentially implode the most successful of brands,” says Young.

(Image: D Ivan Young)

 

“Just because your business, or company, was on the top-performing list last year or even last month, doesn’t mean that people are going to stay loyal to you. Loyalty is primarily gauged by purses [and] wallets; personal desires and objectives; and emotional connection. This is true of clients, customers, or employees,” he adds.

Young shares several strategies for improving business and professional relationships and leverage brand loyalty:

Be Open to Change

 

Close-minded CEOs and owners are just bad for business. Those who buy your product or service, your front line people, are far more in touch with vulnerable areas in your operation than most owners and executives will ever be. Listening to their ideas, feedback, suggestions and/or complaints could potentially save or make you thousands of dollars.

Invest in Good People

 

There are too many options out there for both customers and employees. The cost of losing good people far exceeds the profit you make when keeping them. Not only do you lose time and money by bringing in new people and getting them up to speed for productivity, your customers may have had amazing relationships with the good people you lost. Having an “everybody is disposable” mindset is not only foolish but downright senseless. When it’s all said and done, most people do business or are in business with people—not the business entity itself.

Recognize and Reward

 

The best ways to cultivate career relationships are by creating an enriching and thriving workplace and rewarding positive performance. This can be done by doing simple things such as allowing an employee to come in late, leave early, or take a day off; it’s a small price to pay and goes a long way when it comes to loyalty. Easy systems to implement are employee recognition systems such as “Employee of the Month” or a certificate/award or commensurate productivity bonus.

Create Culture of Service

 

Some companies do this extremely well by doing one simple thing, they enculturate everyone on the team regardless of rank, title, or position. A prime example is the restaurant manager who takes pride in cleaning the bathroom, or the sales manager who goes above and beyond to help a salesperson close a deal and celebrates him in front of the client. When the entire team reflects the brand by building a culture of service, this subsequently signifies “people” values and builds loyalty.

Keep People First, Always

 

One of the greatest wins in business is to acquire and KEEP a customer or client for life. One sure way to achieve this is to resolve a dispute or conflict in their favor. Failing to do so could be costly, especially if it’s in your power to do so not barring some unreasonable anomaly. Your brand’s best commercial is someone who has had a great experience with you. Even if it costs you a few dollars to make it “worthwhile” for them, the long-term rewards of repeat business, company performance, and marketplace reputation will far exceed the small sacrifice.

How This Texas Etiquette Coach Is Growing Her Business With Facebook Live

Facebook Live

For Misty Harris, the director and owner of Texas Etiquette, her passion is all about transformation.

“I love what I do! I can just see how it changes people’s lives,” Harris said. Though her business originally started out targeting local areas, Harris is beginning to grow its reach by offering online classes and Facebook Live sessions.

 

How did you start your business?

 

My background is really off from what I do now! I went to school for architecture. Then, I ended up going to school to become a midwife. Then, I trained to be a Montessori teacher. I knew that whatever I did, I had to be able to take it with us because we’re a military family. I have five children. I needed to be able to work on the schedule of the children and make an extra income, so I realized I needed to work for myself.

I love working with children. I like to see that light flash in their eyes when they learn how to do something. With that, etiquette just did it. Manners and civility apply to everyone. My first investment in etiquette was that I took an online class and became certified. I’ve read Emily Post books from here to there. Then, we moved to England. In England I was saturated in etiquette. I took a Canadian certification that applies worldwide. Then, I went back to England and went to finishing school in the shadow of the Queen’s home. It just keeps going. The more I share, the more I learn!

 

How do you manage finances in your business?

 

Texas EtiquetteAt the beginning, I used personal savings for the business and quickly paid that back. Then, I used a credit card and quickly paid that back. In the last few years, I opened a shop and closed it. I used credit cards and a loan for that. I’m almost done paying all of that back. It was a personal loan because my personal credit score is in the 800s, so they let me take whatever I wanted. In the long run, it wasn’t that great because I ended up spending more than I should have.

I try to spend as little as possible. I try to pay myself first, then any bills I have, and then I bank the rest for the company. The business is actually very seasonable – I have so many requests for classes in the summer, then it calms down when the school year begins. I do a big push around the holidays and then also in the spring. I do try to forecast for that, but sometimes I need to kind of help it along.

 

What’s the most challenging thing for you about running the business?

 

Marketing is my Achilles’ heel. People are afraid to ask, but when they talk to me, they’re like, “Oh, we needed this! Where have you been all my life!” Lately, I’ve been doing Facebook Live and people say, “Hey, you’re great! You can take my children – Please!!”

 

What’s the most rewarding thing for you about running the business?

 

I teach everyone about thank you notes. Getting a thank you note or a call or a picture from one of my students who have used what I taught them is very rewarding. Seeing that they’ve succeeded and their confidence has grown and more and more good things are happening to them is wonderful.

 

What mistakes did you make when you were first starting out?

 

I learned the lesson that just because you have access to money doesn’t mean you should spend it. I did spend a little more than I should have with my business loan. My husband is a tightwad who always told me I shouldn’t spend more than I make. He always told me that if I had the money for it, I should pay for it outright and be done with it. Having him in the background helps a lot with me not going over my budget or my credit limit.

 

What is something smart you did at the beginning that has set the business up for success?

 

When I was first starting out, I was really tight and only bought what I needed. If I needed something printed, I would go have it printed somewhere else instead of buying a printer. I did a lot of bartering, too. I always ask for referrals. I think keeping it small and personal has really helped me a lot because people remember me from 10 or 15 years ago and they still call their friends and tell them to send their children to me.

 

What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?

 

Take it slow. Plan for anything, because anything can happen. With my business, I am a one-woman show, but I just pulled someone else on because if I got sick and couldn’t teach, then there would be no income coming in. Always have a backup and a backup to that backup.

 

What’s next for Texas Etiquette?

 

We have an online class coming up for elementary schoolers. When we first moved to Texas, I put 70,000 miles on my car teaching. The demand is there. People want these classes and need these classes and see the benefit. But, I can’t do it all and be everywhere. So, I’m going to go online. Kids will have a recorded lesson and a live lesson every week. They’re going to get a packet in the mail and cards encouraging them to remember their manners. It’s called Elementary Etiquette and it’s starting at the end of September.

In the spring, I’m going to launch Tuesday Tea Club. I’ve always done tea parties, but now I’m going to do them online. They’re going to get all of their little tea supplies in the mail. Then, we’re going to get online and have a good discussion over tea.

What American Idol Rumors? Kelly Clarkson Joins The Voice As a Coach

American Idol rumors, be gone! Kelly Clarkson is joining The Voice.

In an announcement on Thursday, NBC revealed that the Grammy winner is set to be one of the coaches for season 14 of the reality singing competition series.

“I’m so excited to join The Voice at NBC,” Clarkson, 35, said in a statement. “We’ve gone back and forth about a role as a coach for years, but the timing hasn’t been right until now.”

Continued the star, who’s joining veteran judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levine: “I have always loved appearing on the show as an adviser or performer and established an amazing relationship with the network during my Christmas special. I can’t wait to turn my chair and see the faces of up-and-coming artists and provide them with the help and support they’ve needed to break into the industry. Watch out Shelton, I’m comin’ to win!!”

Shelton, 40, also took to Facebook Live on Thursday to announce the exciting news with his close pal.

“Hey! I’m finally not knocked up and I can join your show!” teased Clarkson after Shelton FaceTimed her. “I know, my gosh, can you stop getting pregnant every five minutes please?” joked Shelton.

“I know I’m done having children, so now I can join The Voice,” Clarkson shot back. “I’m excited. I’ve been excited. Blake was telling y’all I’ve been excited about this for a few years now … the timing hasn’t been right.”

As Voice fans know, Shelton has been the long-reigning champ of country singers on the show, but it looks like Clarkson is about to give Shelton a run for his money.

FROM COINAGE: 7 Most Expensive Music Videos

“I just want Blake to know that I know he’s been on the show before and like showed maybe an award or two to show what he could do, so I just thought y’all I’d show you a few of my accolades. My peers love me. The people love me,” said Clarkson, while showing off all of her awards, including her 2011 CMA award for Musical Event of the Year.

“I’m just saying you’re not the only one bringing country people. What!” added Clarkson with a laugh. “I’m to win! I am excited. You know, I love The Voice. I can’t wait to turn a chair.”

Joked Shelton: “If you can just make it through a year without getting pregnant that would be great for all of us. Okay? Just try that.”

Clarkson, who is also in the studio working on her upcoming album, joins a star-studded list of coaches. On Wednesday, it was announced that Jennifer Hudson will be one of the season 13 judges, along with Shelton, Levine and Miley Cyrus. (According to the network, a fourth coach for season 14 will be named at a later date.)

“Kelly has been a part of ‘The Voice’ family for many years as an adviser and performer. We are thrilled she has chosen to join us as a coach to mentor the next generation through our unique vocal boot camp,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “Every time Kelly Clarkson sings you are reminded what an incredible voice really is. We are looking forward to the sound of Kelly Clarkson on ‘The Voice.’”

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Virginia Tech Coach Buzz Williams Is A Good Sport About Reading Mean Tweets

Buzz Williams may have lost 22 games in his first season as the basketball coach at Virginia Tech, but he certainly didn’t lose his sense of humor.

In a video he posted Monday, Williams takes a page from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and reads “mean tweets” about himself.

Some are mean, all right: “He’s got the fattest neck I’ve ever seen.”

“All my stress goes to my neck,” he jokingly replies.

Anyway, props to Williams for being a good sport.
