So Neil do you WANNA give people recap of what at least United States unemployment has reached as of April third twenty twenty years. Sure so there's a bit less than seven million people that have just become unemployed and for the rest of the April by the time you listen to. This'll be towards the end of April. It looks like the unemployment rates are just going to get much much worse than this summer saying that in the United States alone there'll be more than ten percent unemployment rate which is thirty to forty percent. I heard Goldman Sachs a ten percent. I've heard some people say fifteen twenty percent I see the numbers ranging the problem with how they calculate unemployment is. It's not as simple as oh. You don't have a job like if you've been unemployed for over six months. They considered you not unemployed. They considered you. You Stop Looking. Which isn't accurate. Either right so it depends how they wanNA end counting you as unemployed or employed so actionable things in terms of what you can do during hard times right now. So what now better than ever like?

I'm willing to do some stuff and Neil talk about this. All the time is working for free for a small period of time building up that report quickly and then you know getting into some type of pave engagement.
