[00:00:00] Hello, everyone. Welcome to another episode of behind the scenes with the IFIOC. We’ve got Casey Jackson on the line and John Gilbert. And I’m Tammy Calais. So today’s fun question is what is one dream that you have for yourself? So what’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do, or you always aspire to do, or what’s just something you dream about doing Casey, why don’t you lead us off?
Because you’re going to helping John and I to not be boring. Yeah. I don’t know if you guys are boring, just your answers. Believe. Boring. So practical, practical. Yeah. So so actually this is a little cheesy, I think, because I’ve been this last weekend specifically, I’ve been working on my mom’s Memorial.
And so that seems like such a weird segue into all this. [00:01:00] But I just see the way that she changed the world, you know? And I, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I remember, well, this is so funny ever since I was a little kid little and I mean, Four years old, five years old, six years. My first memories are remember there was a mall at T old school back in the day way before mall super malls, a university city.
And they had a wishing well, in the middle of it, a fountain that if you, if you’re lucky and your parents give you a penny, they can throw an opinion of the wishing. Well, Make-A-Wish, I always wish to either be magic or to be able to read people’s minds and from there, because I wanted to change the world, I just wanted people to be happy.
And we didn’t know what their problems were and help them get there. And it’s interesting with just working through putting this whole Memorial together for my mother and how she impacted the world. That really is my, like, truly, when you say dream it’s to know that the world is better off because I was there than where I started with it, you know?
And it, it feels like an uphill battle with everything going on with [00:02:00] our, our environment and politics and everything else, like, it just feels like. Insurmountable tasks and times what my dream truly is that I affect people in a way, or I’m a conduit for people to be the best version of themselves to truly get out all the drama, get out of their head, get away from the fear and that if there’s anything that I could offer up that they like their job better, or they like parenting better or they’re happy in their relationship.
That I can contribute to that or, or be a conduit for some of that. That’s honestly my grain that looking back to the plexiglass after I passed away on my life, if I can see that people were, you know, moved or touched by that, or, or impacted, and they found their way to themselves through that, that truly that’s my miss America pageant statement about what.
If I could do anything, that’s pretty neat though. Casey, because you talk about, you want to be able to read people’s minds and help people kind of get to [00:03:00] where they want to go and that’s part of EMI. So in some ways you’re already, you’re already in it and you’re already leaving that legacy, which is pretty cool.
Yeah, it is. I think that’s probably why I gravitate so much towards motivationally, especially that the, not just the empathy side, but once you’re inside their. Empower in and find agency within an individual and help them find agency within themselves is just absolutely intrigues me. I am never, ever tired or bored of that.
It just, that invigorates me doing clinical work. When I have conversations with people that I love friends, family and people who want to go deep and have those conversation. I’ll tell you what? That just, not only does it fill my battery. So those like six extra battery packs behind me when I, when I get to do things like that.
Yeah, that is awesome. That is awesome. That’s my dream. I love it. I love it. Well, I’m just going to [00:04:00] jump in to say, I know your case. I know that’s very authentic and that is you. And there’s a sort of a virtue going on a virtue, signaling them like, oh crap. Now I feel like if I say anything about myself, that’s not this leg legacy and his contribution to the world.
That’s going to have this. This amazing act of altruism followed by complete greed and selfishness. So I was blown off with my sibling as soon as I won the lottery. So that’s, this is nothing. This is the balance that we all have John sports go for the dream. Well, first I’ll say I, I think I’d like to believe that I shared things around that, which is why I enjoyed doing this kind of work kid, why I wanted to be in helping professions.
But I will say the difference for me is more, a bit on the selfish side to a certain degree that I feel like there’s a certain level of I’m involved in that. So it’s like, [00:05:00] I don’t get the feedback that Casey gets around that, but my ambivalence goes into things that I feel. Extra fulfilled by an extra joy that I can bring to others in a different way.
Such as various music, things that I do or hosting events and things with friends. There’s something about that. And it’s not even being in the spotlight. I can be behind the scenes, whatever. It’s the kind of thing that Casey was talking about. Going deep with people, connecting with people is more kind of.
Well, it’s become a thing that, that I would like to do is hosting events and throwing events and and enjoying, traveling for events and particularly like music and music production in that process. While then of course, you know, we could go the indulgent route that we did not want another answer.
But that would be doing it in a way that is adding to some sort of positive experience. That’s memorable. That’s transformative or inspiring in some sort of a way that can [00:06:00] be emotional rather than always. So cognitive and I think some something around that maybe the art or expressive side.
Yeah. That sounds like a lot of fun job, but I have to say, so it’s interesting doing this little round Robin of this because Casey, you responded and then my answer was starting to change a little bit and then John, you responded and then my answer was changing a little bit more. So it’s so funny how we pick up from other people.
Kind of, I don’t know if it’s what we want or we’d mirror that, or I don’t know what it is, but like you both brought out different things that I hadn’t thought of that I was like, oh yeah, that is something that’s important to me too. So, cause my original answer, my original answer was I just, I’d love to go back to school at some point and get my master’s in something, but specifically, probably more on the.
[00:07:00] I’m intrigued by the psychology of people and how people work, but we’ll see the dark side from business we’re pulling to the psychology side. I know. I just, I just think it would be so interesting to, so anyways, I’d be intrigued by that. But I also, haven’t done much research into that, but. Then you were talking Casey and that legacy piece, it makes me think about the impact you want to have in your local community.
And so then I think about like starting a nonprofit or things like that, to have a little bit of the legacy, and then Johnny, you were talking about events and everything, and it makes me think about how I’ve always wanted to have not the party. Like, but I’ve always wanted to have the house that has games and that has like fun things for people to do.
And all things like that. So, so my dream consists of multiple layers is what I’m trying to say.
Yeah. Well, thank you guys so [00:08:00] much for answering. Thank you guys for watching. And this has been another episode of behind the scenes with the IFIOC team. Thank you.
