Donald Trump Is Pro-Vaccine But Anti-Mandate

"And recently Joe Biden gave president Trump credit for that operation warp speed, at least to an extent and president Trump sat down with Candace Owens and Candice asked him a couple of questions about the vaccine and vaccine mandates and here is how that conversation went cut ten. Where do you stand on these vaccine mayonnaise? And obviously, I know that you are pro vaccine, obviously, did everything you could to get this vaccine now. I know it was one of the greatest achievements in 9 months to be able to do that. But now it's taken a twist, right? Now we went from this is a good thing and people should have this option to military men, you're going to have to resign because you're not getting this vaccine. Where do you stand on that? Well, I stand on forget about the mandates that people have to have their freedom. But at the same time, the vaccine is one of the greatest achievements of mankind. We would have had a 1917. Remember the Spanish flu killed perhaps a 100 million people. Actually, it ended the First World War because the soldiers were so a lot of people don't know that. The soldiers got so sick. It was a terrible thing. There was no vaccine. There were no anything. I came up with a vaccine with three vaccines, all are very, very good, came up with three of them in less than 9 months. It was supposed to take 5 to 12 years. And we said people have died under COVID this year, by the way, under Joe Biden. Then under you and more people took the vaccine this year. So people are questioning how one of the vaccine work, but some people aren't saying the ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don't take their vaccine. But it's still their choice. And if you take the vaccine, you're protected. Look, the results of the vaccine are very good. And if you do get it, it's a very minor form. There's president Trump and Candice Owens. I had a little bit of discussion back and forth on the vaccine and the vaccine mandates and make no mistake president Trump is anti mandate. He has made that crystal clear throughout, but he's also made it crystal clear that he is pro vaccine and encourages people to get the vaccine and get the boosters, and he has not been bashful about that

Ingratitude Leads to Tragedy

"Dare I say Thanksgiving is a threat to the left? The ethos of it is, of course it is. Now I'm not saying that every leftist is going to boycott Thanksgiving tomorrow. I'm sure they're going to enjoy pie in Turkey. But do you think that the discussion amongst a true leftist tomorrow? It's going to be one of wonder and adoration and respect and appreciation or one about complaining, one about forming coalitions to change things. Now, trust me, I'm not saying that we don't have to fix anything in this nation. What I am saying, though, is that the awe and wonder of the citizen led checked and balanced, independent judiciary consent to the governed system that we live in. Granted from God, not by government is one that every person should be in awe and wonder of tomorrow. And of course, thankful for family, thankful for getting through the last couple of years. Every bad idea. That is currently being discussed on the international stage. Every bad idea that killed over a 100 million people was rooted in ingratitude. Do you think Joseph Stalin was a thankful man? Do you think Mao Zedong was a thankful man? Do you think Benito Mussolini was a thankful man? In gratitude, leads to tragedy.

Where Is the Reasonable Balance Between Safety and Liberty?

"We were about to get onto an elevator of a building in Boise Idaho. And the elevator doors open and the woman's wearing a mask, which is fine. I've never attacked anyone for wearing a mask. And she says, excuse me, do not get on this elevator. Go take the next one. And I knew what she was saying. She wanted the elevator to herself. And one of our other team members was like, why? And she said, because none of you are masked. You see that? You see the way this works now? It's not enough that she wants to wear a mask. She wants to force other people so that she can also feel safe. And for her, the most important thing in her life is being safe. Being safe is important. It is an element of human life. There are risks that I am not willing to take. There are some things I tell my team, I'm not gonna skydive. I'm not going to bungee jump. I don't think that's that dangerous though. Bungee jumping? It could be, I guess. Depends where you do it. No skydiving, no bungee jumping, no more skiing, the last time I went skiing, everyone said I had a great time. Woke up in a hospital. True story. Not doing that again. There's just some things I'm just not going to do. The risk reward ratio, I don't want to end up kind of paralyzed in the waist down and be like, you know, my entire life has been disrupted, but at least I got a good thrill bungee jumping. Like, it's just the reward, and I'm not sure we have a lot of skydivers listening. And that's fine. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it's worth it. For me, I've decided not to do it. So I'm not someone that is a risk seeker for the sake of doing it. However, I want to live a full life and walking around with a mask while natural immunity is set into well over a 100 million people. I would imagine this woman who got very angry at us was vaccinated, it just kind of begs the question of where is the reasonable balance between safety and

Jon Gruden Resigns as Raiders Coach Over Decade-Old Offensive Emails

"John Gruden has always been kind of a wild child in the NFL always been a little bit of a loose cannon, if you will. And I believe he was also he was also the coach of the Oakland Raiders in like the 90s. And then he went to the Buccaneers and led them to the Super Bowl very complicated. But then he rejoined the Raiders in 2018 after he was an analyst on Monday Night Football. Do you remember those things he used to sit down with the quarterbacks? And it was like Gruden's corner. I've never been a big fan of Jon Gruden. I'll be very honest. One in 2002, that's right, my memory's not too bad. I'm not going to be an apologist for Jon Gruden. Okay? I'm sure he lives a complicated life like most people in the NFL. But this recent saga involving in his resignation slash termination is disgusting. And the national Football Association is in many different ways. In enterprise that is built on a House of Cards. The entire structure of how many of the teams are filed as nonprofits on how almost every stadium is built thanks to taxpayer dollars. There's a lot of corruption that exists in the national football, the National Football League. And so it came out a couple days ago that John Gruden is going to be fired, or it has to speak out for his racist and homophobic emails over ten years ago. And I shrugged my shoulders and I actually didn't know where this one was going to go. Because John Gruden signed a ten year 100 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. And now so he technically resigned whatever he says, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be distraction. Thank you to all the players coaches and staff and fan fans of raider nation. I'm sorry I never meant to hurt anyone, John Gruden. And so it was revealed in some of these emails. And based from what I've said, seen should have said something's probably not no, was he joking around in private in a context that none of us can understand? Yes. He incited Joe Biden, insulted Joe Biden I can't even say what he called Joe Biden on air. It's kind of hilarious. Called Roger Goodell, a certain name. I'm no fan of Roger Goodell. So if this whole thing is like a Roger Goodell, apology tour, but here's what really matters. Here's the question. In the National Football League, do they ever allow people to do bad things and continue to participate? Like murder. How about rate Ray Lewis and his legacy of the unsolved double murder? Or how about you remember this one? You remember ray rice, who literally punched his fiance in an elevator? It was an elevator, right? Which gained total notoriety following the indictment he was released by the ravens and suspended, and now rice would be reinstated after he successfully appealed the league's decision. And this whole thing with John Gruden is this question of should you be judged by things you have said in private ten years ago to destroy your current

Forcing Small Kids To Wear Masks Isn't Science, It's Child Abuse

"As a nation how far we've fallen. Where tens of millions of people if not 100 million, plus think that torturing our kids and abusing them by putting masks on their face. They can provide no actual evidence whatsoever. Have stopped this spread. None provide some anecdotal stories, little pockets of evidence that it may have stopped an infection from someone actively spewing droplets. You can provide no evidence disease or systemically effective at all. And yet, in the interest of taking it to conservatives and insulting Donald Trump supporters, you abuse your own kids. But it's it's stunning. It's really tough to see how far I watched it, and I'm sitting there and it's like day in the gym, which is even worse. And I'm watching this. I'm like this can't possibly be happening. We have people abusing their own kids. In childcare facilities. This is child abuse. Child abuse. We have people abusing kids. In order to make a political point. And you may say, Oh, they're not abusing kids in there doing it for their safety. Really? Because the people mandating this are doing it for their safety.

"We should not be turning away work just because we deal with someone else in that industry we're professionals. We can separate the concerns between this client that client and when we turn away work or when a client expects us to turn away work because of implied exclusivity. It's a problem for everybody but mostly for us. Now here's another one to be aware of and this is just business in the but recently exclusivity your peers other people. That do what you do. So if you're in some sort of a group. I don't know let me. Just throw out a hypothetical like mastermind and there's implied exclusivity like. Oh you'll never work with someone else's kleiner even talk. You'll never even talk client of another mastermind member. That's a problem especially when it's implicit. You may not even know that there's an implicit exclusivity clause you may not even know it. And you are very likely to not know that particular prospect or someone you're talking to to do business with or maybe you're just talking to them is the client. Is someone else in that group. How would you know it's not like you have a list of their clients and it's not like you tell your sales people every prospect that comes through our doors check against these twenty different lists of the twenty different mastermind members. It's absurd and so you need to really be kind the scent of these situations where you get into an exclusivity situation we that either explicitly or implicitly. At least if it's explicit you can think through it and you can write it down and you could define it as you see fit. The more dangerous situation is words implicit in between you and your client or you and someone else you know in the industry that can really bite you in the butt and you can't have exclusivity with everybody it's absurd it's ridiculous thing that you could be in business but somehow know that all of these people you know the clients of your friends. That happened to do the same kind of work that you do. Or you don't know these things so be very very aware of any situation where there's implied exclusivity you do not want to put yourself in that situation if you like this podcast and you know alert.

Kelly faces multiple charges of sexual abuse against young women and girls as well as trafficking and racketeering.

Jim, I want to start with you because part of what led to the trial, which is getting underway right in this Brooklyn courtroom, um, started when The Chicago Sun Times first published allegations that R. Kelly had engaged in sex with minors. Can you talk a little bit about his status at that time? In terms of when the allegations began to surface Well, R Kelly was the dominant voice in R and B for generation 100 million albums sold. He was tried once in 2000 and eight after being indicted in 2002 Very narrow charges. One girl 1 14, Year old on one video tape. She didn't testify. Her parents didn't testify and he was acquitted. How significant is this moment of him being back in federal court? How is this different from then? Now? All of these years later, after 30 years of victimizing Young, almost entirely black women. You know, he is being charged with his entire 30 year career being a criminal enterprise that enabled him to pursue this sexual victimization of so many young women and to threaten, coerce and bribe those who bravely spoke out against him.

You might go back to visit one day but loves being here. It's a really great, wonderful place. But I thought, you know, it's the responsible thing to do would be to question everything.

Olsen for many many years since I started my own agency before array digital. I started taking our staff out to lunch. Once every two weeks I did this because at the time I was experimenting with the staff augmentation model where my employees would go out to client locations and they would work in a a full-time day in and day out and take direction from the client directly what that meant was that I didn't have a real strong sense of Team between me and my employees because they were interacting with a whole another staff day in and day out and I was really only around to like help them with administrative things. So I wanted to make sure that we had an opportunity to get together on a very regular basis which is why I invented company lunch since then we've been going to company lunch once every two weeks. It's almost always on a Thursday and it's just a job. And for us to get together and really just kind of hang out and have lunch on the company. It's been very successful people really enjoy it. But when covid-19 in March, we weren't supposed to be hanging out with other people and so we couldn't get together and have company lunch. But what we decided to do is said during that period of time is we had a virtual company long. So the same time every two weeks we would just grab our food and we would eat over video conference which sounds like a really weird thing to do just watch your co-workers eat, but it was actually pretty cool and we would kind of play games and they were like some themes to each one of the company lunches. Obviously it was bring your own food the company to buy unfortunately, but you know, it was pretty neat and it it actually worked out very well, especially for the employees who don't normally get to participate in company lunch because they work by themselves in some remote location like Miami or in Texas or something like that. And we do have at this point even more employees. You don't work locally than those who do but what we decided or what I realized actually after doing this for many many months was that we actually could get together in person and do a safely if we ate company lunch outdoors and we tried it and everybody felt really good about it waited on a patio and that was about two months ago. And since then we've been holding company launched the way that it was meant to be in person, but outside and everyone feels good about it, and it's been honestly really nice wage. To reconnect with people face-to-face, you know, unfortunately, we don't have that virtual company lunch anymore. So again, the remote folks are probably feeling a little more remote e than before but at least for the local team been really nice to get back together and I really actually missed company lunch. It's just a great time to kind of like let your guard down and recharge, you know, shoot the shit with your co-workers. It just kind of have a good from a company standpoint. It's well worth the small expense. We're talking about a hundred and twenty bucks maybe at the most for a company lunch. It's a minor expense and it's just a great way to build the team up if you do something like that if you normally got together with your team in person and you haven't been able to for the last six seven or eight months because of covid-19. Outdoor locations. It is starting to get a little bit cooler now that it's Autumn, but it's still a great time to be outside. And whenever you can connect with your team how much more successful would you be? If you could harness the experience of a group of successful business owners. Well, that is the exact group of people that we have in our business growth Mastermind. Check out more information at a r a mental.com..

"Hey there, it's Eric J. Olsen. The phrase Van Into URL means that you get a domain name that is very easy to remember so long as an example. We have a law firm marketing web page is actually a landing page that describes our service for law firms. And it's on our website. It says this is a red.com slash law - firm marketing or something like that. Frankly. I can't even remember what it is because it's just kind of long and you know, it makes sense for the URL to be formatted the way that it is for things like SEO purposes and whatnot. But it's just very difficult to remember first of all, and it's also very difficult to communicate and Kevin and I we actually wanted to crack an ad recently and we wanted the URL in there so that when Warriors saw this ad instead of going to this is Ray. Com, which is our general home page that describes everything that we do. And even for more services than just lawyers, we wanted to send them right to the law page. So what we wanted was a vanity URL one that was not Thursday is a r a. Com slash something but it was just the domain name and then it could be redirected right to that page. So we decided to get a re law.com and it's super convenient with array law.com. It's very easy to remember and it's very easy actually to repoint it to wherever it needs to go. So we actually have a handful of these vanity URLs in the company that we use all the time A R A law is the most recent one. We also have journey to 100 million.com and we have that because at the end of this episode faith in our show notes and one night and when we publicize the fact that we have this podcast, we don't want to say go to this is Ray. Com slash journey to 100 million. What we want to say is just a domain name. It's something descriptive. Hopefully somewhat short all the journey to 100 million, Is that the shortest URL ever? It's actually a lot easier to remember than this is Ray., Dodge Journey to 100 million. And actually I don't even know if that's the right your else. I don't have it in front of me. But I know for sure that journey to 100 million. Com is the right URL you go to that it will redirect you to wherever you need to go because we can set the forwarding on that. There's another one that I did for an organization that I'm a part of the entrepreneurs organization. There's a landing page for people who are interested in becoming members and it's got a very long URL you'll never remember it. I don't even know like what like where it goes to honest and it goes somewhere and you'll network. But I can never tell you the URL tell my head, but I can tell you the vanity URL and that is join us very easy to remember very long. Or very easy to just tell someone just go to join. It makes a lot of sense. U s. Top level domain is probably a little bit questionable but so is actually off a global organization. And so the. US makes a lot of sense cuz that's the landing page for perspective members only in the US now if it was for anyone in the world would probably wash with something like. Org or something else but. U s made a lot of sense in that case. So vanity URLs have a lot of value there really cheap we get ours from Google domains wage costs $12 a year and that includes privacy. If you go to some place like GoDaddy, it's about $20 a year after you buy the Privacy depends on whatever deal they're running at a time. Sometimes get these domain names for cheap as $1 per year privacy is extra, but still it could be really really cheap and from a marketing standpoint. It can be extremely effective to provide job. With the vanity URL instead of a long URL with a bunch of slashes and dashes and everything else. So if you want to publish a URL to a particular page on your website a highly recommend you think about vanity URLs, they're cheap, they're effective and they're easy to.

"Pay attention to your ABCs Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. What's up, it's Eric Olson ABC 123 ABC in this case does not stand for the letters of the alphabet. It stands for all these be cross-promoting. What do I mean by that? So what I mean by always be cross-promoting is whenever it is that you have someone's attention you have an opportunity to to cross-promote something else that you're doing as an example on this podcast. We have an outro every single episode where we cross promote something sometimes we're off cross promoting one of the services that we provide at a Red digital other towns where cross-promoting something like our Master mind or maybe the non-profit website giveaway that we do every year. There's always something across promoting the lunchtime lives that happened on Friday, right? So once you grab someone's attention with whatever it is that you're given them and it's typically something of value like hopefully this episode Then you have an opportunity to cross-promote something else that you're doing. And I think it's a very powerful tactic to always be cross-promoting in one way or another and this really kind of money goes into repurposing and by repurposing. I mean that you're across promoting across platforms. So as yet another example this right here this podcast I am shooting this as a video. This video can go on YouTube as a stand-alone video right just like any other normal video on YouTube, but then we can also chop it up into micro content that can be smaller bits of video that could be maybe like 15 to 60 second sound bites. Those can go on places or in places like in a ram is stories as post linked in Facebook Tik Tok Twitter. You name it? We can push it out to social medium. We can also extract off Audio and that audio can be used in the podcast. So this is yet another way of cross-promoting. But in this case, it's cross-promoting content. All right, so there's a couple of different forms of cross-promoting if you will one is cross-promoting you're offering whether it's a product or service you're talking about one talk about the other and then there's also cross-promoting of content with such as this video to the audio to social media et cetera. So I want you to always be thinking about cross-promoting because like if you have a lot of things that you can promote and a lot of different places you can promote to it's frankly very difficult to get all those messages out as stand-alone messages, but the moment that you get someone's attention for whatever reason use that opportunity just let them know about some of your other offerings always be cross-promoting how much more successful would you be if you could harness the experience of a group of successful business owners. Well, that is the exact A group of people that we have in our business growth Mastermind check out more information at a r a mentor. Com..

"Hey there, I'm Kevin Daisy and I'm Eric Olson. Join us on our journey that building to 100 million dollar companies. Hey, what's up? This is Kevin make the most of LinkedIn by setting daily tasks. So I set daily test for myself for LinkedIn and I have a few different way to test that I said I'm going to share those with you right now and hope that will help you but LinkedIn as challenging and a lot of people talk to me about how to make it work and how they can improve it and you'll be on your profile and setting that up in your your post content. This is something beyond that so this is setting task for yourself to help grow your engagement your connections followers and potential for sales. So the first thing I do is anyone that connects with me and accepts that connection or accept their connection. I take note of that and I'm a cat asked for that person's name and my task is to send them a message. So it's not immediate message. That's not you know, as soon as they click accept that I send them a note or a message. It's maybe a day later. So what I'll do is I'll send you a message. That's very general. It says hey, my name is Kevin I run a marketing agency in Virginia. Nice to meet you if I can do anything for you. Let me know and that's it. It's not sales e i don't send the links. It's not long. It's very short to the point that actually drives up quite a bit of conversation or at least a thank you. Nice to meet you. I'll let you know. I'll keep you in mind things like that. So it I don't get bad responses from image. Once they respond back or at least a few days after I send that message. I send them a second message. So a second task is set for that person. So it's message to them that message is listen to podcast. If so, I have a podcast that's called journey to a hundred million. Yes about entrepreneurship in our Journeys a growing our agency to a hundred million dollar Powerhouse. So it's something like that. I'm just guessing right now, but and it it does not include the link or anything to the podcast says if you're interested, I'll send you the link. I don't think it's good to ever send anyone a file or a link and Linkedin at all. if they reply back absolutely or yes or whatever then I go ahead and send the link and thank them and again I get almost I would say 80% of the time people say thank you. Yes, please. Share it. Please do about 20% of the time. I'll get people that say no thanks not interested, but it's still quite a bit of people that respond positively. So these are just two things now, they know who I am now, they're connected to me. Now. They they know more about who we are and my agency and so it's just land some, you know, some things they're in their mind about who we are. The other thing is is to connect with people that you want to connect with. So instead of another task for yourself every day to connect with faith in people, which is very easy takes 5 minutes to do connect with 10 people that you want to connect with you can actually go to LinkedIn and search the industry and the type of person maybe the job role does it say it's a medical office manager. You can actually do that presearch copy the link URL and drop that into your test notes. You can click that every day and make sure there are second degree or third-degree and then you can go ahead and connect with 10 a day. It takes 5 Seconds do not put a note in there just connect with them and next thing, you know after a month you could have an extra couple hundred followers and connections with that are the right people that you want to talk to that way when you're posting the right people so your content so just a couple of tips try task for LinkedIn off whatever task manager you have or if it's on a piece of notepaper. It's very easy to do and it's going to really increase your engagement and connections on LinkedIn..

"Drink Without Limits Hey there, I'm Kevin Daisy and I'm Eric Olson. Join us on our journey that building to 100 million dollar companies. What's up, this is heaven. So what I want you to do is think Without Limits. So what does that mean? Well, let me give you a couple examples off one example would be that you are going after a prospect and you're running your business and you have someone that wants to do business with you potentially. But they're also looking at other competitors of yours. So they're looking for pricing their shopping around and they're trying to figure out if they want to get with you or with someone else. And if you think with limits or put limits on yourself and you're thinking you might think I I need this Prospect I have to do whatever it takes to close this deal mean I'll change my processes. I'll bend over backwards. I will change things and I don't feel or in my best interest. It could be payment terms payment types cheap timelines, whatever you go outside of a process. You have to get that Prospect and you're you're limited in your thinking basically that this is the only prospect right now dead and there's not an abundance of them out there. So I got to do what I can to get this deal. meanwhile other people you're maybe not your other competitor, but there's somewhere else in the mix. There's another person that's probably thinking Hey, I'm going to put I'm going to be a straight shooter. I'm going to show what I have and here's our process. Here's how you work with us. And they're on to the next Prospect and they have dozens of other deals going off the closing way more deals than you because they're not worried about just closing that one Prospect. They're on to the next and then they they have a system and process in place to say. Hey, if you're not a fit galleries, you're not fit. Well refer you to someone else and that's the right kind of thinking you need is the think that there is hundreds and thousands of other prospects out there. So I don't need to spend all my time and change my company around just for this one opportunity. So think of that limits think with abundance that there's tons of opportunity tons of other projects out there and stop wasting so much time on one deal or trying to do everything right for this one particular deal. There's tons of them out there and once you start saying the right things and and making a list of the things that you know are qualifiers to work with you. Then you're going to start attracting the right prospects that say, hey, we want to work with you and they're they're very serious about it and you're not competing with other people they say hey, we've already thought about it. We want you and that's it off and that's when you start to win. So think Without Limits don't waste all your time.

"Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. Hey there, it's Eric J Olsen. I was recently having a conversation with someone that I met on Twitter. His name is Joe White and he is a business coach and we were talking about different ways that you can move your employees for just doing great work day in and day out. There are a lot of different philosophies on how to manage people and how to maximize their productivity some law school managers may think that motivation is in the form of fear others, praise still others something else. There's lots of different ways. But Joe had really kind of dilated in and I think it's a really worth your time and effort to listen to Joe has to say now. This is in response to a question asked on a Facebook and Linkedin live from our good friend Zach Miller and what he was asking about was the stat that Joe threw out there that about seventy percent of employees are not wage. Gauged at work. And what exact was asking is how does a business owner change the mindset of someone other than themselves? Yeah. That's a great question. I think the biggest way you do that is you make you people feel valued the way I do it is there are some examples out there. So one of the examples I would give you is to make you feel your people feel valued you Empower them. You ask them questions you listen to them. I think that's one of the big ones is listening. It's not so much, you know paying them more money and not those different things. I think those are things that are important have a meeting and have them run the meeting once a while ask them for their opinion on what's going on at work make them feel valued and make them feel important. I think that's so so huge nowadays where I think a lot of people walk into the business and they just feel like they're just a number I call it in education. They used to call it data education loan. Where we went into everything is it people were data and not people and I think in business were getting to that point to where people are our data in there not looked at as for what they can and do every single person that works for you is special you hired them because you thought they were special. They thought you thought they were going to help your business grow. If your people aren't growing your business are growing. So as a business leader as a business owner, it's a gigantic fun absolutely positive opportunity every day to help your people grow and get better. And if you're like I said, if your people are growing and getting better think what your business is going to do your mindset I think is gotta change to six people first in your organization, and how can I help them grow every single day And empowering them is is probably the best way to do it join us every Friday at noon or our lunch time alive go to this is array to sign up for notifications off how much more successful would you be? If you could harness the experience of a group of successful business owners. Well that is the exact group of people that we have in our business office.

"How do you think through who and what role you need to hire for next? Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin Daisy. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. Hey there, it's Eric J Olsen. As I said before on this podcast. I am a big Twitter geek on there all the time and I like to interact with a lot of the people that I follow on who follow me and I will post questions. They're often about business and growing your business and digital marketing and I recently asked for some questions on that topic and one of my buddies tats Thursday. I want to go ahead and attempt to say his full name. And if I mess it up Pat's I apologize. I've only called you tats because I'm afraid to to actually say your name down to do it. Now. Let's see what happens Katsuya nakagawa. I'm probably totally wrong. I hope not test if I am I apologize but hey Tess asked me this question. How do you think the girl who and what role to hire next and I actually answered him on Twitter and then I realized oh, yeah. He was actually asking this question for the podcast. I wanted to answer here on this podcast and what I Answered on Twitter was you know for us there's there's a progression of questions that we asked before we figure out that we want to hire someone and then who we want to hire and what role in particular with this person is going to fulfill there was a time where we would really just hire anyone who kind of came along with us or came along to us and had some sort of skill set that we could leverage in one way or another but we didn't really even have a plan to hire that person until they just magically showed up on our doorstep which it seems to be pretty common. You hired the people that come to you and then you figure out how to use them as invest. But since then as we've matured a little bit we've actually become proactive about it and we will Define the roles that we need and then we try to find that people that can fulfill those requirements down to that. Right but we do have like at least in my opinion and may not even be formalized in the company, but we have an order of priority in how we figure out who and what role would need to fill and the Very thought First thing that I look for when we decided we're going to hire someone is that we need to fill the skills Gap in our company and what I mean by that is if we are lacking as an example with a specialist, so we provide for services websites online advertising SEO and social media and let's just say and this has happened in the past where we didn't have a person dedicated to one of those for specializations. Well, guess what we had a gap. We had two or three people that were doing when we just make this up as an example SEO and there were all short part time and they were kind of, you know doing the best they could but we didn't have a specialist who was dedicated to that that was an opportunity for us to hire someone when the time was right when our revolution could mean that we could afford it we needed to fill in that skills Gap. So that's thing number. One thing number two was once we had all of our song Bills covered we needed to make sure that no one was getting overloaded. So again going back to the SEO example right now. We have one specialist who focuses in on Thursday. We saw other people that look at it, but one guy who's responsible for SEO across all of our clients and it's getting to the point where he could use some help where maybe there's more clients that need to be serviced and he can actually do now we're not there yet, but we know that that point is coming and it's probably coming very soon. That is an ideal time to find someone else to help him to spread that load a little bit more even knowing also in doing that we accomplished the third priority for me, which is redundancy. The hit by the bus mentality or maybe set as a nicer way. If you're Specialist or you're person wins the lottery and they both they're gone. They don't get hit by a bus could just win the lottery in there. Like I'm not working anymore. What do you do? Right. So you need redundancy in your organization. So you need to avoid that hit by the bus scenario that they've won the lottery scenario by having multiple people and reducing the single points of failure in your organization right now when it comes to web development, we definitely have this covered we have three thousand web designers for all of our websites. And that seems to be a pretty good number right now. We have lots of redundancy. We have less redundancy in some other areas and we know that we need to be then took a higher even if we don't have the demand to necessitate two or three people in that particular area. We know that we need to redundancies that if someone does win the lottery and they both dead. We've got a backup actually not even better than a backup. We actually have someone that's doing it. Right. So we already have a backup which is that other people can jump in and do it and we'll take care of it, but we wouldn't have any one dedicated already in that position. So to reiterate kind of my priorities for who we decide to hire next one is filling in the skills Gap to palm reading the loads that no one gets overloaded and then three building and redundancy to avoid the hit by the bus.

"If you want people to find you on the internet, you have to put yourself out there. Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin days. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. What's happening is Eric J Olsen? I recently interviewed a lawyer named Kate godrej. We talked about a lot of different things that I cover another episode things like a i computational biology and World Wide patents. But at this episode what I wanted to cover is a snippet of the interview that I recorded live on Facebook and Linkedin live where we talk about what she is doing to get our attention of her ideal prospects and how she is putting good valuable information out in the world people are finding it and then they are coming to her that is in a textbook definition of inbound marketing and content marketing great strategy. You put your information out there people find you and then they come to you to either hire you they you have you speak on that topic. Have you speak in front of an audience? It's working for us here to read digital and it's working for Kate in her Law Firm. Take a listen. There's a lot of different marketing job. To do for me personally since I come from an academic background since I was in law school, I like to write and I've used to write up to like ten twelve papers a year and now I can a great so I mean it's a different terms of the account, but I think that for me not only is that good because it gets my name out there on the web and people can search for it but it also gets my name out there so that people know to contact me to speak and so over the last I would say five six years. I've been contacted a lot this week many different types of venues. And so those are always I'm usually off talking about data. So I'm kind of some original studies and coming upon some data that other people don't have access to and that's what I'm writing and presenting about which I enjoy and seems to be wage slaves. I would imagine that the kind of literature that you're putting out is perfect for Google cuz they like to see experts with their names on articles and then OK Google folks. They came from an academic background as well. So all the back blinking and you know that that's all part of SEO strategy 101. So I think you're doing a great job with your content marketing.

"Becoming a thought leader in your industry. Hey there, I'm Eric Olsen. And I'm Kevin Daisy. Join us on our journey to building a 100 million dollar company. A couple of weeks ago I had two guests on our Friday at noon lunch time live. His name is Marcus Sheraton and he wrote a book several years ago named they asked you and mature and it was a huge success. One of the things that we talked about on the Facebook live was how to stand out from your competitors and become a thought leader in your industry. And one of the common themes in our discussion was that you have to do things totally different than your competitors are doing and in particular if you're not pissing off your competitors because you're giving away so much free content. Then you will never become a thought leader. Check this out. It's so safe in the other problem too is for the most part. It doesn't force them to do something that hasn't been done in their in their space. I was talking about this yesterday on LinkedIn and that is this and you want an agency and you get this but you're the anomaly because here's the thing most agencies marketing agencies and most PR companies do not get astounding results when it comes to content for their clients. Why because they don't want to push the envelope because they're afraid that if I produce anything that gets any blowback any pushback a competitor complains a you know, just says, I don't agree with your opinion then all of a sudden they're like, oh geez, and I don't want to piss anybody off. I don't want to know anybody. I'm telling you what if you want to be a thought leader in business today, and you haven't page. Your competitors yet. You are not a thought leader. I can promise you you are not a thought leader. Now, some people say I don't like that phrase thought leader. Well, I don't care if you like it because it Place uses it and there's no other better phrase that I found than thought leader river pools is the trusted leader of the thought leader the fiberglass pools. It's so Wikipedia of Fiber space and ground pools. And if you want to become that you can't be willing to talk about five fun games to play in your swimming pool cuz nobody cares about that that is based on I love that. So yeah, you you you have to almost want to create people that are pissed off at you because of what you're talking about. Like people want you to like your competitors wanting to stop talking about these things cuz they don't want to talk about it and they don't want you to talk about it. Yo Eric when I started manufacturing pools, right which we became currently right this second, right? We're the fastest-growing fiberglass pool. Manufacturer in the US. All right, we'll build over a thousand fiberglass pool shells to ship around two dealers in the country this year. And this is our third full year in business that's stupid growth of its long-term growth. When I started that I was producing videos. That was our team must have shown the entire manufacturing process. Like literally if you wanted to took a manufacturing a fiberglass pool Manufacturing Company, you can watch these videos. It was a series of eight videos. The average was ten minutes 80 total minutes Eric. And do you know what happened competitors were calling me saying why in the world are you showing people how to make a pool? I'm like ding dong people today want to see the sandwich made in front of them. That's how it works. So the fact she again the way we make our pools not special the fact that we show how are pools are made makes us special. Join.

"Recently. I've been given a lot more talks and presentations to groups so I've been doing public speaking. And I've done this for a long time. But the frequencies kind of ramped up recently, and it's kind of a new phase that I feel like I'm entering into. And we've got the podcast I'm doing, you know, putting blogs and just kind of getting my thoughts out into the community for a long time. And it seems like the next natural. Evolution is to do more speaking engagements, which I've started down that path, and frankly, I really enjoy it. It's a thrill to get in front of people and talk to them about things that excite me. And then it's also a thrill to look directly in their eyes and see that they're getting what I'm trying to teach them. And it's specially great when people come to be afterwards. And they wanna talk more about it. And they think me for the concepts that presented to them. Some of the things that I take for granted some of the things that I think are easy things like social media or marketing their foreign to the people that I talked to sometimes so it is actually in a lightning way more beyond. What I think it is. Or the the value of the information. I feel like I'm combining to them. They get a lot more out of it than I think I'm giving them which is great. I enjoyed I wanted to more of it. So actually, if you need a public speaker for you want them to speak to your group reach out, Eric at this is the Ray dot com. But the reason I'm even recording. This episode is because I recently got some advice from someone who's been in the digital marketing field for a very long time who is very successful. And when I asked him, what would you do if you were me to grow this business to a one hundred million dollar company? He had one answer. The answer was get onstage. More get in front of people. Tell them what you're passionate about demonstrate that your thought leader and an expert. And this is exactly the advice that I'm going to take. So I'm gonna be putting a lot more effort into speaking. I've got five or six talks that I've given in recent history that I'm going to actually combine into what's called a slick or it's just a PDF says Americal sin. Here's the talks that I can give if you to give one of these talks at your organization hit me up, and it's on a kind of put that out in the world and see if I can generate some more talks. So if you see me on Lincoln or on Twitter or Instagram if you see more and more talks of videos of me, giving talks that's why it's a strategy that I'm going forward with trying to build a personal brand. And the reason I'm doing that is because that can bays directly to array digital my goal. Here is not to build myself up for that being the only purpose. My goal is to try to get some more attention personally. So that I can build up a Ray digital. To be a one hundred million dollar company. That's my only goal here. If that wasn't my goal if my goal wasn't to build a company you'd probably never hear from me. Like, I'm not naturally one. This is going to be shouting from the hilltops. I'd rather just mind my own business and go about my own business. But this goal that have the ambition of growing the business is much bigger than what I want. So I'm going to go forward with whatever I need to do to grow the business. And right now, the advice and the experience that I'm getting is all waiting to getting up on stage, more and public speaking.

"I got a sale that have been working on that is on on the fringes. And let me tell you a little bit about how it happened which I'm excited about how it happened and unhappy at the same time. So I went to this. This company that's a fairly good sized company. And they basically asked the for a website and that was their their ask. And it was a referral from someone on no. And they said we want you to bid on building a website for us. So what did I do? Well, I went and did a a full deep dive on everything they have gone on the website is one piece. Right. But we do digital marketing so SEO the website social media advertising. So I looked at everything in. So when I went in there to actually do the review it was me in about ten other people in a boardroom, and I had I was standing up front to present to them. And so I love the situations really to be honest with you. I do best in those situations where I'm up front in. I have all these people, and they say, oh, the the president's here and all this stuff to me. That's that's where I do my best. But anyway, so I went to this review which was like sixty slides that I put together. And it took an hour hour and a half to have this meeting, and I just tore them apart. I mean, they were doing nothing and their competitors are probably spending thirty to sixty thousand dollars a month online advertising and. Facebook advertising, you name it. So for them to really play with the big boys in their industry. They have to be looking at a big change here. So I tore everything apart. I taught about the website for a few minutes. But most of it was about all the advertising content SEO all the things that they had not really been focused on. And it what it did was it made me stand out, and it kind of blew them away. And they said, wow, this is really great. And we are predate the candor, and you being honest, and and whatever. So this is great. They're really excited, and they just there's no way that anyone else came in here and did anything close to what I just did. Now, backfired eventually though because what they did is they firstly throughout the other proposals. And they're like, you're the clear, you're you're the winter here, but. They didn't stop there. They decided that they needed to go find three to five others that could try to compete all my level and give them comparible 's. So then there racy pricing me out. So by me changing their thinking. In covering real issues and saying you need more than a website. They went in basically said, hey, can someone else do the same thing. And so it kind of put me back a little bit. And I wasn't very happy about it to be honest with you. But I still want to you know, work with this client. And so I said, you know, they can bring it on. And we'll still win this. Now, it's gotten to the point where they're coming up with the room strategies. They want me to price this price that price this price that and actually I just call them and said, you know, I'm not that interested to to continue. You know, we know we're doing I uncovered all the issues I laid everything out for you guys on how we're gonna fix these issues in grow your business, and you guys are pricing. Everything I do out and trying to get a better price and trying to come up with your own strategies, which I don't believe we're gonna work. So anyway, I'm just never had that happen before I kind of excited at first but put off at the same time. So. Don't feel be afraid to disrupt kinda thinking of your prospect. But also be prepared if it backfires on you. So sometimes maybe step back a little bit and say, well, they asked me for this one thing, and I just gave them twenty things it might be better to. Say well, let me get in the door with them and fix this. One thing they need solve their problem. And then I can start to uncover these other things for them. And and maybe I can get more business from them. Obviously it's easier to to sell someone that you've already sold to.

"One of the things that we started doing probably about six or twelve months ago is Kettering a lot of video this really kind of started off as ad-hoc. We would do it in the office. We would just grab a cell phone, and we would take a really short video and then around the springtime and summertime of two thousand eighteen s sorta do what we call it in the office roadshow's. So the roadshow is where I had a mount on my windshield. And as would commute to work, I would talk about something of interest to me and out of catch it on video. And typically these topics were things like SEO or social media something to do with digital marketing. We put those out there on Lincoln and overtime. We got a little more sophisticated. We started had things like what we call bumpers, which are like a little intro and a little Altro before. And after the episode, and what we found is that. Got a lot of interest. And a lot of people were talking about us. It really was very good marketing tactic for us. And so we started to ramp up our video game quite a bit. We bought a camcorder here. We've since upgraded to a better video recorder. We've even interviewed videography there's now we still don't have a full time videographer on staff, we have someone here who is taking care of the video. As a matter of fact, we have two people that can capture video we have Jake, and we have Jamal. So every single time we are out and about we are capturing video and his video is just a great tool for us from a marketing standpoint from a business standpoint is fantastic because people recognize us before we even meet them. So I will literally walk up to someone that maybe I want to meet or that I'm familiar with. And actually this just happened a couple nights ago where he. Oh, hey, Eric. I follow you online. I know you're content. I'll watch videos into your podcast. So it breaks the ice just immediately. So that I don't have to go through the song and dance of explaining who. I am we can kind of get right down to it. And we start talking about them. Which is what I really wanna talk about. I want to talk about them more that I wanna talk about me. So videos really helped us quite a bit. We can strip to audio out audio can become part of a podcast or something else. We can take still images from the video one day. We are going to hire a full time videographer if we could find the right person today, we hire him or her. But we're not there yet. We definitely wanna do. It is something I recommend you look into. It will set you apart from your competition.

"Everybody. This is Kevin today. Had a save yourself a lot of time in a void a lot of extra meetings. So let you let me tell you what we did here. So we've seen a lot of time over the years meeting with people businesses startups, you name it we've met with them sit down the table go to their office. They come to our office takes a lot of time out of our day. And it takes a lot of time out of their day. Just usually find out that. They're not a fit for us. They don't have the budget, or we're just not a match for some reason and that meeting which took an hour, maybe two hours with travel just was a lot of waste of time for us and them. And so now part of our process is what we call the fifteen minute call. So we have a lead come in or a referral come in. We I reach out to them immediately. And we we asked him for a fifteen minute call or we just call them right on the spot. And once they answer we said, you have a few minutes. I'd like to talk about how we can help and find out a little bit more about your business. So we sat down, and we put together a little bit more of a process around this fifteen minute call because even though we were doing it. It's still wasn't a process. We just kind of did it at hawk and random every time. But we figured out. Was there's a couple of questions that we have to answer in order to validate the customer, and so I'll go through those questions right now. The first one is are they be to see? So that's our ideal customer is a beat Assi business. Now, we still do work for B two B. But if I had to say ideal is deceased, so that's businesses that sell to consumers, either servicer products. The second one is the revenue we're looking for a company that's got between two million and fifty million dollars in revenue. So doesn't up front question? What is your company revenue if they're not willing to share that then that could be a red flag or the in growth mode? So are they looking to grow their business, if they're not we're not interested if they're a lifestyle business or old mom and pop that's just looking to maintain were not interested because if they don't grow. We don't grow. And the second is what service that they feel that we can help with or what's their pain point. So obviously, we wanna have all these solutions and help clients with all these things, but what we forget sometimes as what they actually care about. And we wanna make sure that we can solve that issue as well as deliver them results on other things that we recommend. So so the call is really now got a process to it. We ask them to tell us a little bit about the business, and we try to get questions answered out of the questions that we ask them. And if we don't get checked off once we have a couple, you know questions and conversation with them, then we ask those directly, and we make sure that we check all the boxes and then set up the next meeting on that call. So now, we're not wait his wasting time. We set the next meeting up if we feel fit, and we moved forward to make sure they say, yes, I wanna take the next step is saved us a ton of time. And is the best thing we could have done. So anyway, the fifteen minute call you could do it with any business. You could apply to your business right away.

"What's up everybody? This is Kevin daisy today. I wanna talk to you about a big change that we made about one year ago that took our business from seventeen K a month and reoccurring revenue to a hundred and thirteen k in recurring revenue, and we did this in just one year. So what do we do? Well, we got focused and by focused. I mean, we focused down our services. So obviously, we're just marketing agency, and we provide all the digital marketing services that you would expect social media SEO websites and highly targeted on advertising, but about a year ago, we also built custom software and customer applications. The problem with those were. They were project based in. They didn't have reaffirmed revenue. So what we had to do is. We had to chase the next job. The next job the next client and that was a one off job. We didn't have anything reoccurring after that. And we dealt with that for for many years building websites that way. Building software, and you always have to fight that next year to replace all this clients with new clients, and then you end up doing the same revenues. You did the year before Minnesota start all over again. And so air, can I we're getting a little concerned with some of the projects we had that weren't coming through and discuss them software in nature is very hard to sell hard to justify that the the client needs this piece of software when there's so many options of off the shelf software out there. So it was really difficult. It was easy to get into a bind we have high paid people and it wasn't reoccurring. It was no cash flow. So his wasn't good for us. But really we were just pushed we were pushed to the edge to make this change. We had a situation where we didn't have a lot of projects coming in. We had a really huge payroll that we had to support. And so we had to do what was necessary to make this company survive. And so what we did is out. You know, we did analysis of our reoccurring revenue and all the services that we offered. So the winner was digital marketing that yielded reoccurring revenue for us. It wasn't much at the time. But to us that made the most sense to put all our ships on table and go after that, so. About a year ago? We made the full flip we had to make a lot of hard decisions way to let people go hit a change. Our message we until our clients but fast forward to just one year later, and we're over one point three one point four million dollars in yearly revenue reoccurring revenue every month. That we can support the team we can support the company and now we're scaling this. Right. So it was a huge thing for us. It was a big decision to make. But the lesson here. I think is you have to make decisions you have to pit it when you need to and you have to make the changes in order to let your business survive.

"I'm eric. I'm Kevin join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollar company. Back in the day when we were doing websites and custom software was all project based or by the hour. And I remember one time one of our CPA's longtime ago private, well, I say a long time ago probably about a year and a half ago. Maybe two years ago asked us. Hey house next quarter shaping up and our answer was we have no fricken idea. We have no idea how much we're going to do in revenue next quarter or next year or even next month. Frankly, because we don't know where these products are coming from. We don't know where the income coming from. We just get projects we do the work. We finished the project dies get another project. We were doing is. We were replacing one project with another, and we got really lucky for a long time where when one project ended just magically another project would appear, and we were maintaining for the most part, but we had no clue as to how to project out what was going to happen because we just didn't know where the money was going to come from. Well, fast forward, and we have switched from project in early work to one hundred percent recurring revenue we actually don't have the mechanism to Bill or even track by the hour anymore. It has to be recurring revenue everything that we do is a retainer based of work. Which is just fantastic. Now going back to the question. How are you going to do next month next quarter next year since recurring revenue and our expenses for the most part are recurring? We can actually start to project out how the finances will look in the next month. Or even the next quarter. So what we did is QuickBooks has a way of doing this. But we didn't like the way that it reported it, and we felt disconnected from the numbers as so what we did is we broke open a Google sheet, and we literally created every single expense that we expected to come up in the next month based on the bills that we know are recurring bills or the bills that were sitting on my desk, or my inbox. And then we also projected out the income that we were going to receive based on when payments typically come in to the office, and we sorted in. Chronological order all the journal entries is what they really are. Right. The positives and the negatives. And then we could chart out. How cash flow is going to change over the next month? So now at this point, we can literally project out the next month and every single month towards the end of the month. Cotonou I get together. And it used to take an hour and a half to do this doubt. Only takes about fifteen twenty minutes. But we literally right out all of those entries, and then we graph emperor checked out the low points and the high points when it comes to balances. And our counts it has been fundamentally a game changer for us to be able to project out where we're going to be the cool thing is is that we can see where the low points are. Right. So when we get low in our Bank account, we know that there's a potential risks there. Now, it's not cool that were low on a balance, but is cool that I know now three weeks from now, we're gonna have a cash crunch. And I started thinking about what I need to do to avoid that or to mitigated or to soften it three weeks in advance. I know that there's going to be a cash crunch. So we set up lines of credit we've done all these different things. We've got these tools at our disposal. Now, budgeting projecting lines of credits. To avoid running out of money. Right. And it's not that we're not profitable. We are profitable is a casual issue, but because of recurring revenue we can project it, and we can mitigate it. And we can resolve it amazing. If you're not on recurring revenue right now, I'm telling you it is the game changer that I've been searching for for all these years. And I'm so glad that we found found it. Thank
