Entertainment industry glamorizes that lifestyle. And like you said it makes sexy. It makes it exciting. It it makes it seem very adventurous and to certain people that's appealing, man. There's a dark side to it, man. It's a hard life. When when I started running with with the Hells Angels of a guy, I was working for the president of the charter. I was in. He said, I can promise you three things. I can promise you that violence and. In prison. That's my sales pitch. Welcome to the game. That's the reality of it. Okay. Well, knowing what you know now, and how everything played out would you do would you do it all over again? I would in hindsight. I would do it better. I would do it cleaner. You know, like like any of us. We don't have a crystal ball. We react to situations. The best we can. But I'll say this through my career to my profession. I loved what I was doing. When the alarm clock went off in the morning, and I put my feet on the ground. I was excited to go to work. I was excited for what the challenges were. Then I tried to convey that to my kids to the kids. I coach to the kids I speak to whatever it is that you choose to do with your life be excited about it. Don't base your decisions on money. Don't chase the dollar Bill. Chase your passion. Chase something that when it is time for you to go to whatever it is that drive you choose that career. You choose you can't wait to go. You can't wait to get there. It's a it's a much more present Hoppy way to go through life with that attitude than it is looking at what the size of your Bank account as well said. Yeah. And I'm trying to do that with this podcast here. All right, j what are you up to now? What's driving you? What are you motivated by? What are you working on? What's next Jay Dobbins? Well, there you know, there's several things on a day-to-day basis. I coach high school football coaches point Catholic high school in Tucson. And that brings me great joy. And I'll be honest with you. I'm not the best football coach out there. And I love the game. But I love being around the kids and my players. More than I love football. I love the interaction with them. I love seeing them grow and cheese. And when they fail. I try to be there to help them recover from that. I press my kids, I'm hard on them. I challenge them. And I tell them this all the all the time. If I don't push you. If I don't challenge you if I'm not hard on you. I'm cheating you as my job. It's not my job to be your friend every day. I want I want you to like me. I wanna have your respect my job is to challenge. Because if I don't I teach you and.
