Coming up, we're gonna have Rob Mahoney talking after the two Thursday night TNT NBA games. We're gonna react to basically everything we've seen for the last three days. Just things that have jumped out to us. And then Peter Schrager is gonna come on and talk about the NFL. Do we have a best team? What are we noticing through seven weeks? What can we expect in week eight that will lead to million dollar picks? And that is today's podcast. Let's bring in our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, we're taping this. It's almost 10 o 'clock on Thursday night, Pacific time. Rob Mahoney is here from The Ringer NBA and showing TheRinger .com. We stayed up late because these were two good games. We've had three straight days of very entertaining basketball and we gotta start with the biggest story. Kelly Oubre in the Sixers. What a signing that was, he looks great. No, we just watched LeBron versus the Suns. LeBron's 29 minute limit I think is out the window. He played the whole fourth quarter. And then made the two big head down just going to the basket plays at the end. But biggest thing that's jumped out to you in the last three days is what? Lakers wise or just in general? In general. I think a lot of these teams that we expect to be really good clearly have some assembly required. And the Lakers are one of those teams. I think we saw that from the Bucks and the Sixers tonight too. We're seeing it certainly with the first days of the Victor Webinama experience. Everyone is getting up to speed into their rhythms, trying to understand how all these new pieces fit together. Not revelatory for the opening days of the season to feel that way, but I think even some of the stuff that personally I thought was going to be seamless, like the Giannis, Dame pick and roll, there's some kinks in it that they're going to have to figure out over time. Lakers I thought were the one that surprised me on that one because I thought they were one of the teams that were going to have the advantage coming in. You think about last year's team compared to this year's team. It doesn't seem like Reeves is involved enough either game that, I don't want to say he's an afterthought, but it just felt like he was more in the mix in the playoffs last year. And I liked what Schroeder did for them last year and he was good on Toronto last night and really fit in with what they did. So they're going to have to figure out that Vincent D 'Lo thing. Wood was playing crunch time, which I was really surprised. Did you think we'd be getting this much Christian Wood? I thought that was like a flyer for them. Guarding Kevin Durant on some possessions, wild stuff. But if nothing else, we can trust that when Christian Wood is out there, he will be Christian Wood. In these uncertain times, we can always fall back on that. He certainly had his fair share of like black hole kind of possessions in this game, but he also does play into the Lakers advantages in terms of their length, right? Their size against a team like Phoenix, they're just going to be able to out muscle, get to rebounds, get to balls that they can't get to. So that part of it paid off, I thought in terms of just like having another big out there and certainly the Anthony Davis experiment continues as far as like, do you want more size with him? Do you want to play small with him? There's always that internal question because he seems a little reluctant to do it on a full -time basis, but I'm sure Christian Wood's going to get his shots. I mean, clearly Jackson Hayes is going to get some shots in the rotation to be a meaningful part of the Lakers, the mix there for the Lakers. So I don't know. I think Darvin Ham has a lot of questions to figure out, including the one you listed with Austin Reeves, which is like, who has the ball? Who's initiating for us? Who is involved on a possession to possession basis? Because this game, this was a lot of D 'Angelo Russell, and it was a lot of a better version of D 'Angelo Russell than maybe we saw the other night, but it still feels like a lot. 33 minutes for him tonight. Yeah, Reeves, seven shots, one assist. And I thought all of his usage stuff was going to go up, but it seems like it drifted Russell's way. The other thing I was surprised, I thought Rui was going to be a bigger part of this team. I only played 12 minutes, but I haven't changed my thought on them. They're just such a big, problematic team. And if you're the Suns and you're feeling good after that Warriors game, right? And the Warriors, no Draymond, they were able to overpower them a little on the boards. The two centers had 22. And then tonight you see the flip side of the use of Nurkic experience, where it's like, you're getting zero room protection and you're getting somebody who's just going to be confused anytime somebody is coming off a pick. Basically Lebron at the end of the game just said, I'm going to go attack that guy. Yeah, I'm going to go attack that guy right there. Durant was better tonight, at least for the first three quarters that he looked on Tuesday night. It was really cool just seeing those guys on a basketball court after all these years. As I get older, I'm older than you, but just think like, man, this goes way back now. We're talking mid 2000s was the first time these two guys played basketball against each other and it's still going on. So that was in a cool way kind of lingering over this game. I was enjoying that one. How do you think Durant looks in terms of being a 35 year old guy who they gave up three first rounders and two swaps and Mikhail Bridges and Cam Johnson for? It feels like a slightly loaded question. Yeah. He's looked good. And certainly as you said, the first three quarters of this game looked more than good enough. I think the problem was just like this version of the Suns like felt very James Harden is hurt and Kyrie Irving won't get the shot. Nets, you know, just like Kevin Durant and a bunch of like - I blocked that net out of my mind. I think a lot of us have tried to, but you know, him with a lot of like serviceable workaday role players can get you so far. But as you saw on this one, against a really good defensive team like the Lakers in the fourth quarter, they can just shut the water off. And this is where, you know, I'm nervous about the Suns for a variety of reasons. I think if it was just the defense or just the depth or just the injury risk of their core guys, I would feel better. But it's all of the above all the time. And that's going to put Durant in some games like this one. It's going to put Yusef Nurkic in positions like this one where all of a sudden he's triggering your offense because you don't really have a default point guard out there. And sometimes the value of having a point guard in your rotation, I don't think it's really going to matter when Beal and Booker and Durant are playing together. Those guys can all handle and play make and do everything they need to do. But in a game like this, where two of those guys are out, sometimes it helps to just be able to run some offense that doesn't have to involve Kevin Durant pounding the rock through pick and roll. Yeah, 28 shots for him today. 13 including, and then 13 free throws. He played 39 minutes and was also playing the five in stretches. And this is game two. They had to basically try to unlock 2007 Texas Longhorns Durant. That's the last guy I want to be throwing miles on, maybe in the entire league other than LeBron. Cause he's, you know. That's going to be true for Booker and Beal too, right? Like when any of these guys are out, those three, whoever's left is going to have to play huge minutes or else you get into Grayson Allen and Drew Eubanks are playing like a massive role in your rotation. And I like those guys. I like Drew Eubanks. Maybe not like tamper and lose a second round pick like Drew Eubanks, like some teams do, but. I'd lose 50K for him. Maybe not a second round pick. It's a little steep. Yeah. The other game, Milwaukee Philly. So no Harden. I wish there was a way to just mute the entire Harden story of all coverage for it. Anything online, anything on Twitter, all conversations. I just don't want to hear it anymore. And I don't think he has any interest in playing. And I just think, just tell us when he gets traded. Their best chance now, now that the, especially the Clippers last night looked great.
Fresh update on "12 minute" discussed on Real Estate Coaching Radio
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award-winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Julie, do you think we have an interest rate problem or a lack of inventory problem in the United States? We definitely have a lack of inventory problem we have for some time, and there's no reason to believe that the world will start raining magic inventory on us anytime soon, in spite of all of the prayers of many realtors, brokers and buyers. I agree 100 percent. And if you want proof that there's not actually an interest rate problem, well, with that said, thankfully, interest rates are falling. Yes, but if you want proof that it's actually a lack of inventory problems, look at the fact that even with higher interest rates, the average home in the United States still appreciated by, I think, was it four and sometimes six or 10 percent in your market. So here we are coming at 2023 was the worst real estate market in certainly all of our professional lifetimes in the last 40 years. And don't know if you all knew that, but congratulations. If you lived through it, you get the T-shirt. If you're still listening to this podcast, you have made it. I survived the worst real estate market in history, and I only have this stupid T-shirt to show for it. Well, hopefully you have more than that to show for it. But listen, point being is, is we have an inventory problem. But what the statistics approve and should prove to you is there actually are far more homes for sale than what you're easily finding on the normal sort of easy button sources like the MLS. And so what we're going to be doing today is we're going to be training you on the different ways to use your MLS specifically to find homes for sale. And there's a lot of a lot of this stuff sounds very wonky and nerdy and technical and analytical, and it is. But the fact is, is that this is the type of information in a market like this that gives you an advantage. That's right. Now, we have done dedicated podcasts showing you many, many different ways other than your MLS, both online and offline, to find inventory. But we also know that in spite of our best efforts with all of those podcasts and all those different sources, that the MLS still is your number one source. Of course, that's where you go primarily. So here's the thing. Are you relying solely on that buyer drip you set up for your motivated and qualified clients? Has the drip run dry? It's time to get more creative, more aggressive and more profitable with those MLS searches. So we're going to concentrate just using your MLS today. We've had, again, other podcasts using things other than your MLS. And remember, like every day, our notes for today's show with all Julie's details are down below.

So before we drill down on some very specific strategies to better utilize your MLS searches, two quick facts. Fact number one, the longer you take to deliver what your buyers want, the less faith they're going to have in you. If you've ever been ghosted by clients that you've showed homes to, this may have been the reason. Are your buyers being more proactive than you are? Are they outdoor knocking for themselves, sending letters or cards themselves, going to new builds for sale by owners, open houses? Well, you better get in front of that. So fact number two, finding the right house for your buyers in today's market is a bit like a safari. You're looking for something that's scarce, but could be hiding in plain sight. You'll need more tools and more skills to have the successful hunt. So we're going to give you guys a little advanced secret. It's not part of Julie's notes, but it is a simple fact. A real buyer buys, a looker never buys. Right. So if you find yourself showing lots and lots of homes to a buyer, they're probably not ever going to buy. And the fault lies with you, not the buyer, because you didn't pre-qualify them for their financial ability, for their, you know, all the things that we teach you to do when you're in coaching. But it's all part of the pre-qualifying script. So when you go through those questions, the whole point of the script is for you, for the buyer, pre-qualification script is for you to actually discern what their level of motivation and interest and whether, frankly, they're financially capable and emotionally capable of buying a house. And also it's going to help them to understand their level of seriousness, their level of intent. And so they might decide that, hey, guess what, I'm really not a home buyer in this market. Or you might decide, well, you know what, you might think you're a home buyer, but you're not working with me because we're not, you know, I don't think you're that motivated based on how you've answered my questions. The point is, is that the longer you, the more homes you show a buyer, the less likely they are to buy a house from you. And I want you to remember what I just said from you, because here's what happens and anyone that's been in the business for more than a heartbeat knows what I'm saying, is that you are going to discover buyers who are going to meet you at open houses or just wherever. And they're going to say, I've been looking for a house for six months, 12 months. I've seen 100 billion homes for sale. And you're going to follow one of our scripts and you're going to find out, I don't want you poaching another agent's buyer, but you're going to find out exactly what they feel that's going on. They're going to tell you that they are going to fire their agent. They've already fired their agent. Maybe they're somehow no longer attached to them. They haven't talked to them in a couple of weeks. But really where the error happened was that that original agent did not actually help the buyer to focus and drill down on what they were looking for in the area in which they were looking. And there's very there's really there's only a handful of really effective techniques and scripts and systems to really drill down with that buyer so they don't end up wasting a lot of your time. And I don't know how else to express it other than that. Just remember what I told you, listeners, if you've got buyers you've been working with for a real long time and you've got so much invested at this point and you're right, you're going to ride that horse into the horizon right off right off the cliff, you might find yourself wasting so much time with buyers that really weren't motivated in the first place. You're not going to show them enough houses to then have them one day just wave the white flag and say, fine, damn it, I'll just buy that one. They might be house enthusiasts. They're just getting decorating ideas. Who knows? Right. I mean, I tell the story and it's true. I mean, you know, when you and I were we started selling real estate, we sold over 100 homes our first year. But that doesn't really represent the number of people that we actually came in contact with that we attempted to work with professionally. Sure. It was five hundred, six hundred many because we didn't know how to prequalify. Right. But we just we would put exactly we put all of our time and effort towards these buyers. And as you start to pick up, you know, as you sell more houses, then your brain says, oh, what are the commonalities? It's almost like lessons, right? What are the what are the commonalities, almost subconscious learning that's going on? I noticed that all the buyers that actually buy don't want to look at more than maybe maybe four to six houses. I've noticed all the buyers that actually buy, you know, show up for their appointments on time. The buyers that actually buy respond to me when I actually send them an email or text. The buyers actually buy have their loan stuff done. So they're actually preapproved. In other words, real buyers actually have a certain signals that they put out. You just have to know how to tune your frequency to learn what the real buyers and how they actually act like. Most of the buyers out there right now are not real buyers and they will happily waste your time. That's right. I'm glad that you drilled down on that. As you were talking, I had Rory's old broker's voice in my head. He used to say they call them buyers because they buy, you know, and then he'd storm off early coaching, I suppose. All right. So let's yes. Keep on setting up your buyer drips. We know you guys are going to do that anyway, but also make sure that you are actively and creatively mining your MLS using the five strategies, starting with number one, most important thing. Tim, you mentioned it. Re-examine your buyers wants and needs. Use prequalifying scripts. What's a deal killer and what's a deal maker and why? If they're adamant about a specific neighborhood, why is that? Is it because they love the walking trail in the clubhouse? Well, there's probably 10 more neighborhoods in their geographic search that also have that profile. Expand their search to capture more options. This is a big mistake I see agents making. Well, why isn't your buyer in contract? Well, they're only looking on these three streets. Well, why do they love those three streets? Let's find something that meets those criteria. That's maybe on a fourth street. Jules, tell the story. When we were moving to Austin. Yes. OK. So when we were moving to Austin, we had a fairly broad search. We knew Austin from going there a few times and we said we wanted X, Y and Z. Right. Well, we were working with an agent there and he was kind of getting close, but not really. But he was only searching in the areas that he was comfortable and he was only searching. And, you know, when he was putting the areas in the MLS, he was putting these particular areas. His stomping ground. Exactly. And what Julie did. Another big mistake, by the way. Exactly. What Julie did is she got in the MLS. She didn't even have access because we weren't licensed in Texas. And then she I'm sorry, she got into Roeder.com. And then she just expanded the search out, you know. So he was probably using his house and doing a 25 mile radius around his house. We curiously always ended up in Lakeway. Exactly. So what Julie did. Which is a lovely area, don't get me wrong. So what she did is she pushed it out like 50 miles or something like that. And sure enough, right over that, essentially the virtual border of the circumference in which he had set his search parameters. Julie found the house that we wanted to buy. Exactly what we wanted. Exactly. It was right there. We literally bought it before looking at it. We didn't even see it. Right. All we had to do was, you know, is maybe an extra five minutes away from the actual edge in which he was searching, you know, literal five minutes just right outside. Like a 30 minute drive versus a 20 minute drive. Exactly. From where he was centered. So the point of it is, is that even if your buyers show up in your life and they're saying, we only want to live in this area, in this area, in this area. And you know, you're going to find out why you're going to find out. And I'll tell you guys a technique. Get a map, an actual map on paper. You can print it off. It's OK. And then ask them questions. And this is all part of our buyers system and ask them, like, where do you work? And then put a little star where they work. Where do you, you know, where do you go to church, synagogue or mosque? Where do you, you know, all the things, right? We'd love to go to this park. This is a place we love to shop. This is the doctor's office. This is the dentist's office. And what you're going to see is that most people like you and everyone else lives within usually no more than a 10 mile radius. Like all the things in their life is within a 10 mile radius. That's their habitat. Exactly. It's their bubble. Everyone lives in a bubble. Wherever you are in the world, you're living in a bubble. You can be in Paris, but you're living in a bubble. You can be in, you know, Murphy, North Carolina, and you're living in a bubble. Your bubble, if you're rural, it's going to be more than 10 miles. It's going to be more like 30. But you get the point. And so what you then need to realize is that most people are never going to move outside of that bubble. That's the reason that they're saying I want to live in this particular area, this particular area, because everything around them is very convenient. So you want to show them the stars and you want to say, so then again, these are all part of our buyer system. So where are the places you go every day? Work and this and this kid's school. OK, then you're going to put another star by those areas and then you're going to show them that there's actually communities that are neighborhoods that are right outside of where they had sort of self-imposed this circumference of search that maybe is just right outside, but still makes it so their drive is only, you know, 15 minutes versus 12 minutes to school. You guys get geographically adjacent. So that's one of the questions. It's like, how long are you how long does it take for you to drive to work now? 15 minutes. OK. 20 minutes. Or if you're in L.A., an hour. Right. So how long are you hoping are you OK with driving? Maybe, you know, 20 minutes as opposed to 15 or are you wanting to like what's important to you? So I know where to look. And then you've got to ask these questions to help them self discover all the different possibilities that they have by simply expanding their MLS search area. This is all part of our buyer system. That's part of Premier Coaching. So spend more time drilling down, getting to know exactly what they're dreaming of. Why did they choose their current home? Assuming that they love it or used to love it before, maybe they outgrew it. What caused them to choose that house? Probably that hasn't changed. Ask good questions. Get the answers and deliver to Tim's point. Look at the map. What is important to them? Even if they're relocating, they have a job somewhere. We probably want to live close to work. All right. Number two, if your buyers can't or won't compete for scarce inventory, again, it depends on what they're looking for. You've got to change your strategy. Search for homes that have 30 plus days on the market, 60 or 90 days plus as well. You're less likely to have to compete for those homes and the sellers are likely to be more motivated to make a deal. Maybe there's a builder spec home that doesn't have three offers on it, something that's back on the market or for sale by owner that isn't getting showings. Change your strategy if your buyers can't or won't compete. Also, it's OK if it's time for them to wait. Or if you have a buyer that shows up and says that they want to bludgeon the seller so they can somehow get a price that's unrealistic, you need to give yourself permission. There's more scripts, more questions. You need to ask them to find out why they're thinking that way. And sometimes it's because they're super payment sensitive, which means you need to help them understand different ways to get their payment down. We talked about that a lot in premier coaching and obviously on this podcast. But the moral of the story is this. If you have somebody that's just going to want, I'm not going to buy something unless I can get 30 percent off, unless you're in a market that's going to give someone a discount like this, which, by the way, you are not you need to jettison that buyer because that's not a real buyer that is a time waster or adjust their expectations. Maybe something, you know, maybe their grandpa told them you ought to be able to negotiate at least 30 percent down. Maybe it's something that just they haven't thought of why they're saying that. Sometimes it's cultural. Sometimes they just don't have any reason. But more likely than not, they are wanting something that is more expensive than what they actually can afford. Right. And they read something on or watch some YouTube housing crash expert or they have their head full of, you know, I'll give you a perfect example of that. And this is a current headline. Prices are falling in 30 of the most active markets. OK, so doesn't that make you want a lowball? Prices are falling. I read a headline that prices are falling. And in fact, it is true that about 38 percent of active listings will have a price reduction before they sell. But it's not by 30 percent. It's by like five percent. It's practically nothing. And it's because they started too high in the first place. So an uneducated or undereducated buyer client might think that that means it's time to lowball or an unprofessional buyer's agent might think that it's OK to lowball. That doesn't mean that that's reality. So how do you know the difference? You look at what their expectations are and what they're hopefully preapproved for and you look at, OK, you want this, this and that. Well, the past 10 closings have all closed at ninety nine percent of list to sell price ratio. I'm glad you said that. That's where my mind is. Right, exactly. It's all part of our buyer system. But show them the statistics in the MLS of what the list to sell price ratio, the average days in the market. Assume that they're coming to most cases with a bunch of misinformation out there. And then you'll say to them, so this house, the house is like what you're looking for and the condition, location, whatever. They're all going to be selling. It looks like for about 98 percent or 98 percent of the of the list price of the final list price and the average selling price. Show them all the statistics from the MLS, almost like you're doing a CMA, and then ask them if you are a seller and you had that access to that same information. Why, you know, why would you sell the house for less if you knew this, your house was worth that? Well, I'm looking for a deal. I'm looking for a bargain. Well, if they stick to their guns on that, then it may be time to just break up or, you know, you're done. But if they say, oh, I never thought about it that way, I wasn't aware of that. I thought I was supposed to negotiate. Well, then, you know, you're doing your job as a buyer's agent to educate that client who probably will buy. They just need to have more information. And if they're coming from a market, if you're in like a real market and they might be coming from an area where maybe it is, you know, essentially homes are selling at a larger discount than basically nothing. It could be. You don't know. You're going to have to find out. But yeah, it's mostly comes down to misinformation or, you know, it's not their fault. Yeah. Well, there's the bottom line. You can't blame the the buyer for you not having done your job at the beginning of the relationship. That's the main thing you want before you start dating. You at least want to read their LinkedIn profile. Doesn't that make sense? Right. Exactly. All right. So point number three, look for new construction, even if your buyers don't think that they'll like it. Add one well-selected home at the end of a search for resale homes just to take their temperature. They may be surprised how much they like it, considering it's all new. They get to choose some options and they won't have to deal with repairs. They probably won't have to compete. They probably will get a more better mortgage deal and a better payment. You have to at least look into it in terms of new construction for virtually every buyer. There's only a few markets where that's not possible. Well, yeah, the new construction guys, new construction is going to own your market. No doubt 30 percent of sales. Why? OK, because it's even if it's a smaller home and has, you know, a lot of these new construction homes, all the builders are doing is they're making them physically smaller and they're D content D removing content. Right. Right. Options. Yeah. Removing options. And now what they're going to start doing is making the lot smaller and people are going to buy them. Why? Because the interest rates and the payments are going to be lower. People always shop payment. It doesn't matter whether it's an expensive car or expensive trip to Disney, whatever the heck it's called. You know, it doesn't matter. People are shopping payments. That's how they think. So new construction. If it's anywhere near your stomping grounds where you're selling real estate, trust us. And we tell you, you've got to become an expert in new construction. We've done lots of podcasts about that, lots of obviously training and premier coaching. Well, that's right. OK, so point number four, if you can't find something in the right school district, find out if that district allows out of district families to pay tuition. This is becoming more and more prevalent and ranges from a thousand dollars per year on up, depending on what you're looking at. Call the district enrollment advisor and find out often the tuition can be made up by the fact that buying out of the district costs less and has lower property taxes. I knew a couple of kids. I don't know if you knew that. I knew a couple of kids at our high school that were their parents lived like way out there and they were just paying tuition. Well, where my mind went was how many people, especially post covid, are doing home schooling now or how many or how many are doing private schooling or religious based schooling? I mean, there's a lot of options, you know, if the kids are young and they don't have any like attachments to the school or the other kids in their class, then, you know, you might want to explore, help your buyers to open their minds to something other than the way they grew up. I mean, Zoe goes to a private school, but Julie and I both went to public schools, you know, totally different than what our experience is completely different. What isn't the same? I mean, what is the same rather compared to even like 10 or 15 years ago? So your buyers might be stuck in a quagmire of outdated thinking and you're going to have to help them, you know, give them some options to let them think, you know, Julie, I had someone that was exactly the same exact same thing. They wanted to go to the, you know, Worthington school system, Worthington school district. That's just where they were dug in. That's where they maybe had gone to school. That's what, you know, that was it. No, do not show me a single thing outside of work. Well, then what I did is I showed them some statistics. I went to there's various websites that compare school systems, school systems. And, you know, it's all the way to the number of students to teacher ratio, the age of the actual schools, test scores, the whole thing. And they were right. Yeah. You know, Julie, when, you know, 20 years ago, Worthington school systems were way better than the, hey, the adjacent school systems. But I want to show you something then. Now, this really surprised me and then show them what the other school systems are actually doing and then let them make their own decision. Let them also then consider that you guys get the idea. You're going to have to help educate a lot of these guys if you're finding them essentially without available inventory. The inventory is there. The homes are there. You're just going to have to do more work to help them find the homes to be a lot more creative, basically. Exactly. Yes. OK. Speaking of which, number five, look at your own past client and sphere of influence list as if it's your private MLS. Who do you already know who owns a home that meets the criteria of your buyers? Does that homeowner know what the current value of their home is? If they did, what would that do to their plans? Who in your database just got relocated, divorced, needs to upsize or downsize? Who just had a third kid and needs to buy a four bedroom home? Be the matchmaker. I see so many deals from our coaching clients where they literally are the only reason that their clients are in contract. Well, your bonus point six, which you're about to read that goes hand in hand with really point five, because the reality of it is, is if you're looking for a great excuse to call people, right, and you're a little bit queasy about that, if you've got a buyer that's looking in a particular area and the buyer's hot to trot, you know, pre-approved, ready to go because you followed our system, this is an actual home buyer, you will be shocked how, I think, you know, really surprised and happy a lot of the people that don't even have their homes for sale are to hear that there's still strong desire in their neighborhood. And then you can also then start a conversation. Well, have you considered selling sometime in the next 12 months or less? And you'll be really surprised how frequently they say, well, we are thinking about it. Well, we've got a house under construction. We're going to move to Florida. Exactly. Well, maybe we could advance your plans and move that, you know, and then you don't know you're going to put a deal together or at the very least, you've got a great listing lead. And you know what's the best about that? I love this from our coaching clients. When you put deals like that together, your buyer is not competing. It's great. OK, you're in control of the entire transaction. And most of the time you're creating a listing for yourself and the next transaction at the very least a referral fee if they're moving out of state. Exactly. I mean, you're in complete control. It's one of the number one things agents complain about is they feel out of control all the time. I'm going to actually add a bonus point to that. Sure. Go to the new construction home reps. And we coach you guys how to what to say and how to say it. But here's just a quick overview. Ask them of the houses that they're building for their new build clients. How many of those new build clients have homes to sell? That might be obviously an access for an avenue to get listing leads. But also it might be just even if that house is already maybe going to be listed with another agent that that new build rep knows. You now have got advanced information about inventory that's coming for sale. Think out of the box. You can do this with retirement communities. You can do this with all different sources. Again, past podcasts and coaching and premier coaching. Julie's glaring at me because she doesn't want to be. That's funny because you said that sort of bonus point. We always come up with bonus points as you were talking. I'm glad that you mentioned that the other surprisingly good resource. When somebody is really drilled down on a very specific building or a neighborhood, call the president of the HOA because they know everything about everyone. They know who is relocating, who they know, who has a second home. They know who has a rental property. They know who's behind on their property taxes. They know the whole thing. We've done we guys we've done so much training on this on this podcast. But like, you know, Julie's mentioning the HOA. She and I can go back and forth and share ideas with you guys for like hours. But here's another one. If there are a lot of you guys are selling in areas where there's a lot of VRBOs. How many of those VRBOs, if they knew what the price of the owners knew at the price of the value of the home would was would be happily happily sell the property. Sometimes the VRBOs are managed by not by owners, by by management companies. Do some digging. You can actually direct contact the owners of the VRBOs through VRBO or home away, and you can then ask them if they thought about selling the house. You can even tell how often it's rented. Yeah, exactly. Not rented. You can go into history and find out if that, you know, great deal down in Amelie Island in Florida that they bought as a rental during Covid has actually worked out. And you can see that it's only rented for three days. So, you know, of the last year and they've lost all kinds of money. So you can be sure rest 100 percent positive that they will be very interested in a prospective sale. So open your mind. All right. So thank you for that. The bonus point, another bonus point, official point number six. And we did one of our most popular podcast series ever was about door knocking of all. Yes. OK. Which surprised me. It's kind of old school, but it's very effective and it's particularly effective in a low inventory market. So doorknock the neighborhoods where your buyers are focusing. Leave behind a simple wanted flyer describing your buyers and their needs. Wanted your home for excuse me, wanted your home for my preapproved, highly motivated buyer clients who are looking only in the 12 trees subdivision and need at least three bedrooms, flexible closing date. So you're either going to talk to somebody at the door. You're going to leave behind that wanted card. Now, I'll tell you one of the things that I have been I don't know whether I'd say surprised, but I guess I caution you guys for your most motivated. And, you know, in today's market where we have an affordability thing going, prices are high, rates aren't what everybody wants. The buyers who are really motivated and serious, they're so motivated that sometimes they doorknock the neighborhood they want by themselves for sure. Well, how many of the buyers you're working with actually have homes to sell? How many of you are working with buyers, but you haven't actually prequalified them or asked enough questions to know that they're actually sellers that won't be able to buy until they have their home for sale? How many of you are working with buyers that actually might be interested in buying the house that another one of your buyers has to sell? You guys thinking outside of the box here? Be the matchmaker. This market is about being professional, knowing what questions to ask, following a system every single time when you're working and you're following our premier coaching system. When you're working with buyers, you're going to go through the same system. When you're working with sellers, you're going to go through the same system. Nothing is done by chance. Everything and everyone has the exact same experience. That's called running a real business. And then you start getting more consistent results. It allows you to progress mentally, emotionally and financially a billion times faster when you're following a proven system. That's very well put. And I have to confess something that I, you know, agents that don't follow these types of creative inventory, inventory searches. I really honestly, I think that they're kind of contributing to the low inventory problem because most of you are sitting on sellers who would sell if you could just find them something. How many times have you heard that? Even in the past? I mean, it's becoming three to five years of this very stymied inventory. And it's not changing anytime soon. We're very, very inching up just a little bit, not not enough. And in fact, on our predictions podcast, we're going to quote the NAR economist Lawrence Yun, who said he said recently that we could double inventory overnight and we still would not be in a balanced market. It's going to take at least a decade. And what's going to have to happen? The demand is just going to increase. That's true. We're just on the we're just on the very leading edge of the massive amount of demand that there's going to be entering the market. And yes, millennials, I'm talking to you. Right. So here's the thing. Until the baby boomers start letting go of the resell homes, until the new construction really starts to dial up, you're not going to see a turnaround in the inventory. We're going to be in what basically is a seller's market for conceivably at least the next 10 years. That means there's going to be appreciation, inflation on real estate for in a meaningful way for at least the next 10 years. Well, let me give you a quick example of how this can go. Right. You guys are always frustrated. There's not enough in the MLS. We look in our our favorite rental areas and there's like three listings available and two of them are in contract. That's been pretty typical. So where we live in Puerto Rico, there is no MLS. So how do transactions happen? It's almost 100 percent this type of thing where it's relationship oriented. Who do you know? Who knows somebody who is selling? Who do you know who's relocating in? Who what it's going on with a new construction is a big thing. And probably two or three times a month, you don't see this because I throw them out the mailbox. But two or three times a month, I will get a card not from a realtor, from a buyer saying I only want these neighborhoods. I'm sending cards out to everybody on these three streets. You know, if you're even thinking about selling, would you please just call me or email me? Yeah, that's the new reality. And, you know, again, we're just at the very 10 years at least. So don't if you're waiting and thinking that somehow rates are going to drop again. All of a sudden there's going to be prices are going to it's not going to happen. This is what you've experienced. And is a just we're just leaving the starting gates of what the market's going to be like. But that's OK, because what it's going to result in is because you have developed the skill set and the mindset necessary for this market. And frankly, your competition largely has not. You will have an unfair advantage in the marketplace. This is your market because it's hard for everybody. This is your market because it's the worst real estate market in the last 40 years. So if you want to know what the what it feels like to be in the right place at the right time, it's how you feel right now. So take the next action and obviously become a premier coaching client. In the meantime, I thank you for keeping this number one listen to daily podcast for real estate professionals in at least the United States. Yeah, that's right. Yeah.

A highlight from Ep386: 3 Ways To Make Money From Your Show
"I want to make sure that I'm always bringing in at least one client a month, one new client a month. So I'm not going to waste my time only doing four episodes in the month. Instead, I'm going to go much more. I'm going to do 16, 17 episodes in the month. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey, Podcaster. It's your host, Adam Adams, and we are talking about monetizing your podcast. We're talking about the three most common ways that podcasters will monetize. Now, if you look at other episodes that we've done on this podcast, and actually I'll have my team put a few of the monetization episodes in our show notes right now. So now you're listening and you're going to be able to scroll down and see what are the other ways to monetize because in this episode, we're talking about the three most common ways that people monetize their show. So if you want to know the other seven or eight ways, go and check out the links that are in the show notes. We will link to other episodes with other ways of monetizing. We're going to talk about the three most common ways, the three most common ways. The first is CPM. This means cost per meal, and it doesn't mean cost per million. It means cost per thousand. I think meal, M -I -L, must have Latin roots. It must be like Latin, cost per meal. Cost per thousand downloads is the most common way that most people try to monetize. As the three ways that I'm talking about today, this is the worst of the three ways. So I'm going to share what CPM is. I'm going to explain how it works, and then I'm going to share with you a better way. I'm going to explain how that works and how people get a hold of people because you make a lot more than your CPM model. And then I'm going to explain the third way, which is the way that you can make the absolute most amount of money. CPM cost per meal means that an advertiser who, and here's kind of like the caveat to it, and it's an advertiser, they don't necessarily have your same avatar. They're just more of like a general audience advertiser. And so you might have a real estate show. You might have the podcast on podcasting. You might have a show about your health and wellness. You might have something about piloting. You might have something about, you know, aviation, or we can just talk about millions of these things. Education, we can talk about movies, whatever your podcast is about. If you were going to go with a CPM model, that would mean that you would get an advertiser on that had a general ad. They're usually about 30 seconds or a minute long. So that advertiser, they wouldn't even really conversate with you. They would end up just putting up their ads in your place. And so one of the ways that we do this is there's some platforms out there that allow these ads to happen automatically. And when I say automatically, they can be dynamic ads, which means they can do it to episodes that you've already been published, that have already been published, you published a long time ago. And they just basically push a button and then one, two, three, or four different ads, one, podcast. And when it's a dynamic ad insertion, that's going to mean that there's going to be a 30 second ad followed by another 30 second ad followed by maybe a one minute ad followed by a 30 second ad. And that's before you ever give anybody value. Before anyone ever hears anything on the podcast, before you've said anything good, they get bombarded with these CPM model advertisements. One might be about diapers. One might be about home improvement. Another might be about a meal prep service. And the fourth one might be in Spanish or some other language that you don't even understand and neither does your listener. And this is a real story. This is actual true story. And so do you want the CPM model? Maybe. So far, it doesn't sound very enticing, does it? They don't even share my same avatar, you're thinking. If they're not going to help my perfect person, why do I want them? Well, you might not want them at all. You probably don't. And how do I get paid? That's your next question. How do I get paid with CPM? Well, most of these places, they will say, hey, I'm going to give $5 CPM. Or if they really have a lot of money to throw around, they're going to say $20 CPM. And if you found a way to just get the cream of the crop, the best of the best, you might get $30 CPM. What does that mean? That means that per thousand listeners that you have, so think about it, how many listeners do you have? The average podcast has about a hundred listeners. A top 10 % podcast has about 300 listeners. The average one has about a hundred. A top 10 % has 300. A top 1 % podcast has about 3 ,500 downloads per episode. Now you know how you get paid. If I'm getting $5 CPM and I have a thousand people listening, I'm going to make $5. Awesome. Now, if I had three advertisers, I would make 15 bucks per episode. So all the time, the effort, the work, the value that you're trying to give, and then you go ahead and you make 20 bucks, you sell out, you make 20 bucks, and you turn off your listener. You're a very awesome listener that has been coming every single day that you publish an episode. They get excited about it. Well, now they have to sit through three or four ads. And by the way, one of them's in a language they don't even understand because you went with a CPM model. That type of sellout, no offense if you're doing this already, but yes, offense if you're doing this already, that type of sellout isn't going to have a prolonged active podcast. Let's just say you had a thousand people downloading and you had four ads. So you're about to make 20 bucks. Now you're probably going to have like 500 people listening because they don't like the freaking ads. So now your income goes down to 10 bucks. If on the highest end, think about the CPM being on the highest end. Like I'm really crushing it. In the top 1 % of all podcasts in the entire world, I've got about 3 ,500 say I'm even above that. I've got 4 ,000 downloads per episode. And you're looking at a CPM model where you're able to somehow negotiate 20 bucks per each episode, per each CPM, per meal, per thousand downloads. And you got 4 ,000, you just made 80 bucks per episode. I do the math on this. Let's just say you're doing one episode a week. So 52 times 80 bucks. This is the best you could do. At the end of the year, you've only made four grand. It won't even pay for your editor. That's why I don't like the CPM model. That's also why did I bring it up first? I brought it up first because it's the absolute most common way and it sucks. And people get excited because they think they're making all this money, but really they're making like $2 because listen here, I'm going back to the CPM And negotiate you $20 per meal, cost per thousand. You're going to make two bucks, two bucks. You're going to make a 10th of it because you only have a hundred listeners when you need a thousand. So you made two bucks on that episode. What can you get with two bucks today? A candy bar? So if you do this the whole year, you can buy a candy bar every single week. It sucks. Option number two is partnership. This is a sponsor that is partnered with the show. And why is this different than CPM? It's way different because in CPM, they are chasing you. They are putting it at that $5, $10, $20 per meal. And then they're reaching out to people and saying that they'll give you like $20 per thousand. And you think to yourself, Ooh, I get almost a thousand downloads per month. And so I'm going to make like 20 bucks a month. And that's one way. Okay. What is the partnership? This is when you reach out to them. When I give you an example, I coach a ton of people to do number two. And it's because I think the CPM model sucks. And so I tell them, why don't you find a partner of the show or a sponsor of the show? Now, this does not mean an advertiser. The CPM is more of an advertiser who reaches out to you and says, I'm only going to do $5 CPM. And I'm going to do it with anybody who wants to do it. When you're getting a hold of a partner to your show or a sponsor of the show, you reach out to them and then you dictate how much money you're going to be making. So let's just say you've got a hundred downloads per episode. In this case, you'd be able to command much closer to let's just say 1500 bucks a month. If you are an average podcast, you would probably be able to command about 1500 bucks a month. Let's say that your 1500 bucks means that you've got 4 .333 episodes per week, because that's how the math really works. You don't have four episodes a month. I mean, you don't have four episodes a month. You have 4 .333 episodes a month because 52 weeks divided by 12 months is 4 .333 weeks per month. And so in this case, you would be making $348 per episode. Now that's a lot better worth your time, isn't it? Think about how long does it take you to do an episode? If you have a team that edits your podcast for you, then your podcast is only going to take you about 30 to 60 minutes, maybe 90 if you're doing a little bit of research. So for example, you spend 90 minutes to do this. So I'm going to divide $348 by the 90 minutes that it takes you. 348 divided by 90 equals, I don't know why I was even thinking about 90. 90 minutes is an hour and a half. Okay. So I needed divided by 1 .5. So I did that. I was like, what the heck? Why isn't this adding up when I divide it by 90? Okay. You were making about two bucks a minute, but when you look at how much are you making per hour with that podcast, if it takes you 90 minutes to come up with the content or invite your guests, do a little bit of research and then press record, then in the partnership slash sponsorship version number two, you're making $232 per hour. That's if it takes you 90 minutes. Now, if it only takes you five minutes to do an episode, 10 minutes to do an episode, you make a lot more. On the other hand, you are editing your own podcast and it takes you 12 to 15 hours to do all the editing of post -production, create all of your marketing pieces and all of that. Then let's just divide this by 15 instead. So I'm going to do 300 divided by 15 hours. You're making about 20 bucks an hour. And that's not terrible. It's slightly higher than the average minimum wage right now. So it's close to minimum wage. It's not amazing, but it's not terrible. It's not $5 an hour, $10 an hour stuff. So that's okay. You want to spend 15 hours editing and all of this for your podcast, you make about 20 bucks an hour. If you use the partnership slash sponsorship version, that's version number two. There was CPM was number one. Partnership is number two. Number three is going to be selling your own stuff. And that's the cream of the crop. We'll be there in just a moment. So I tell a quick story. I had a podcast client. Well, still have a podcast client. But this is in the past. So Alex came to me, he wanted to make money. He had a top 1 % podcast. So he had about 3000 downloads per each episode. And I told him, Hey, if you do CPM, you're going to be able to make something like $20 CPM. You've got 3000. So that three X of what the cost per meal is. And so you make $60 per podcast. And is that how much you want to make Alex? And he would say, no, it's not worth my time. Why would want to offend my listener to listen to an ad? That's not even going to serve them that comes in in the beginning of my episode before I've even added any value. And I do all of that for 60 bucks just to lose listeners. So that later I'm only making 30 bucks because it goes from 3000 people to 1500 people now. And so of course he's going to say no. So then it goes, Alex, here's a way to partner with somebody. And in the real estate space, I said, one of the main people that you reach out to is a lender. Alex has a real estate podcast. And so he teaches fix and flip and he teaches mindset and he teaches how to scale a business. And when it comes to him getting his sponsor and reaching out to them as a partner of the show, I told him one of the best, easiest places that you can go is a lender. So think about this, Alex, think about a private money lender, a hard money lender, somebody who lands on these fix and flips. Now you can still do coaching for listener and they still need somebody to fund the deals. So you having a fix and flip partner, it definitely both of you serve the same person, but neither of you take away business from the other person. Now, in fact, Alex probably makes more money if he has somebody who can really support his people with money. And the person who lends the money, the hard money lender, probably makes more money when Alex has more clients as well. So it's a win -win. Instead of detracting from the business that Alex can get, it actually supports his business and he's more profitable and effective and his sponsor or his partner of the show is more effective. And Alex says, well, with my 3000 plus downloads a month, because I'm in a top 1%, I could either make 60 bucks if I do CPM or if I do this partnership, how much do you think I can make? So five to 10 grand. And he's like, five to 10 grand? Are you sure? And I'm like dead serious. I am sure you could easily make five to 10 grand if you are the one who reaches out to them. So I taught him how to reach out to them. He and I even role played. So he practiced it. Step one was we decided who are the people that can help him. He writes down the hard money lender. Step two is we decide how do we play to the player? How do we give a pitch to that hard money lender? How do we give them that what's in it for me so that they even give a darn? And step three is to do that first call and to go out of your comfort zone and to call the hard money lender and let them know about the opportunity. So he did this behind my back. Well, we at the end of a coaching call, I said, okay, go and do this. And so he did, but he did it with two people instead of one. So he asked the first person for about five grand. And then he called the second person and asked them for about five grand. And so guess what? Alex could have made 60 bucks an episode, but instead he made 10 ,000 a month. He was doing eight or nine episodes a month. So I need to put in this math, $10 ,000 divided by approximately nine episodes a month because he's doing two a week. So this is an approximation. He's making $1 ,111 every single episode. He's making $1 ,111 per episode. And I know for a fact that Alex has my team doing all of the back office. So it takes him about 45 minutes to make $1 ,111. So I'm going to multiply this by 0 .75 because it's three quarters of an hour that it takes him to do that. Oh, I need to divide it by 0 .75. And he's making $1 ,481 an hour with his podcast. So partnership slash sponsorship, way better than CPM. Do you still want to do that CPM model? No. So the partnership is a much better way to go because Alex was able to make $1 ,400 in per hour instead of 60 bucks or 70 bucks an hour. Much, much better. Now let's go to the third option. The third option is selling your own stuff and this can yield you so much more fruit than the partnership slash sponsorship. So if you want to make more than $1 ,481 .33 every F an hour that you do your podcast, stay tuned. We'll be right back after this episode. Hey my friend, as you know, this episode is sponsored by my company, growyourshow .com. We want you to be able to have the best tools at your disposal without costing you a whole arm and a leg.

If it's on there, it's vetted and approved by yours truly. And if it's not on there, it's probably not worth the money. So go ahead and get yours at growyourshow .com forward slash PDF. Let's get back into the show. We are back. We are talking about the three most common ways that people monetize their show. The first was the CPM model. We decided together that that one effing sucks. The second one was partnership. That one's really pretty cool. Like that one's pretty cool. Remember Alex making $1 ,481 .33 every single hour that he works on his podcast. When you like that too, or would you like something even a step better? A step better would be you selling your own services. You would sell your own coaching, your own consulting, whatever you can do, coaching masterminds for your listener. And let's imagine that you've got a products. One of my products is above $40 ,000. So the client would come to us and they would pay about $3 ,000. They would pay a little upfront fee and then they would pay about three grand a month and we would serve them for the 12 months. Okay. We would serve them for the next 12 months. So that ends up being more than 40 grand. When you add the three grand a month, but times 12 plus the down payment as well, it's over 40 grand. So for that package, if I get one person, just one per month, then we gross just like you would be grossing the CPM. You would be grossing the partnership money or sponsorship money. You are also grossing. You're selling your own services. So in this case, if all I do is just sell one person, that one package, and I have other packages available that are more and less, all I do is just sell one of those packages once a month and I'm doing four or five or six episodes each week. If I just sell one a month, then I make 40 grand every month, more than 40 grand every month. I'm doing the math right now on my phone, on my calculator, my trusty phone calculator. And I'm assuming that I do four episodes per week, four episodes a week. Now, two of those episodes are 10 minutes on average. We'll just say 12 minutes on average. Let's just say 15 minutes on average because that'll be actually easier with math. And the others are 45 minutes on average. And so I've got basically two hours of work, two hours of work each week because I've got a 45, a 15, a 45 and a 15. I hope that's making sense. So two hours a week. And so I've got 17 episodes happening and almost exactly 17 hours of work. Now, if I divide $40 ,000 by 17 hours of work, it's $2 ,352 .94. It's $2 ,352 .94. So let's recap. Option number one, CPM. You can make 60 bucks -ish max, maybe $5 per episode. Let's imagine that you are doing four episodes a week. And so you're making, let's just say 40 bucks a week. That's a hundred. And anyway, I don't want to give you too much numbers. I'm now realizing that I keep throwing out numbers and that's going to get confusing. So I'm not going to waste my time doing all of that since this is an audio and I don't have something to show you. I'm just going to explain it to you. On one way, you are most likely making about 20 bucks an hour. The next one, you're making closer to a thousand bucks an hour. And on the next one, you're making about $2 ,000 per hour. Now for me, I'm doing four episodes a week. If I was only doing one episode a week, of course I could quadruple that, but I want to make sure that I'm always making that. I want to make sure that I'm always bringing in at least one client a month, one new client a month. So I'm not going to waste my time only doing four episodes in the month. Instead, I'm going to go much more. I'm going to do 16, 17 episodes in the month. If I do 17 episodes in a month, I'm still making $2 ,352 and 94 cents per hour. And in additionally, about $2 ,352 per episode. Now, if with that type of motivation, think about it for a second. If you were doing four episodes a week and you were selling one $40 ,000 thing per month, would you have some motivation to get behind the mic? If you knew that you were going to record for about an hour and you're going to make over two grand, it would become your favorite thing to do. You would choose to record an episode before you would go do something else that was fun. Because it's like, I can get behind the mic for just an hour and I can make two grand. So let's recap. CPM, shitty. Partnership, pretty freaking good. Selling your own crap, your own good stuff. Hopefully nobody sells crap. Hopefully you're only selling really quality things that you've got. Well, that's the way to make the most amount of money. So those were the three most common ways that podcasters make money through their podcast. We talked about how they work and we talked about why the last one is the one that I suggest that you get started on right now. And if you need help, my name is Adam Adams. I coach people for a living. I support people. I help you to be able to make your 40 grand a month, even just 10 or 20 grand a month through your podcast because you're doing fewer episodes. That's great too. That's really, really good too. And I coach people to do that. So feel free to go into the show notes and schedule a call with me so that you and I can start working together. That's going to be a discovery call. And in the show notes is a link to our website. It's growyourshow .com. You'll see the link. And at the top right, you see a button. The button says schedule a discovery call. It's green. It's bright. It tells you exactly what I'm telling you right now. So you just go to that button, push it and schedule a call with me and we will help you start making your 10, 20, 30 or $40 ,000 a month through your podcast by selling your own stuff. See you on the next episode. This is serious. Don't go. Now that you've gotten whatever value that you feel that you got the actionable takeaways, you need to implement the stuff that you learn. If you remember me talking about bird church once and they learn how to fly and then they walk home. I don't want you to walk home. I want you to fly home. So take the steps, take the actionable steps for your benefits that you can become a better podcaster. That's the only thing that I ask of you. And I'll see you for more actionable tips on the very next episode.

A highlight from Dennis & Julie: Exciting versus Enduring
"Hey everybody, Dennis Prager with Julie Hartman, Dennis and Julie. One of my favorite hour and 12 minutes of the week. Me too. Isn't that amazing? Yes. And what's also amazing is that we actually do probably three or four Dennis and Julie's a week that are not recorded because we talk on the phone so often. And sometimes, I don't know if you think this, sometimes when we're done speaking, I'm like, wish that were recorded. Really? Yes. That's an interesting point. But you know what's also great? We are very personal on this show. There's really, I can't think of many things that we talk about privately that we wouldn't talk about publicly. I think people understand that. That's why that guy called me and I've talked about this a lot, said, I have a great word for you Dennis, transparent, because I decided early on in my career that as unnatural as it seems, because people obviously hide parts of their lives from others, I thought I'm going to hide as little as possible. That's why people say to me more often than any other things when strangers meet me, you know, I feel like I really know you and I'm sorry and I say, you do. I can attest to that as someone who knows you off the air as well as on the air, listeners really do know you. It's also just easier being transparent because I can imagine that it's difficult to have to think, oh, did I say that? Should I say this? That's right. It's just kind of your default. It's like it's easier to be faithful than have an affair. Aside from all the moral issues and the hurt of my spouse, all of that stuff, putting aside that they're all real. A major reason not to have an affair is because of the amount of hiding you have to do and lying. It is not possible to have an affair and not become a serial liar. Well, one lie begets another lie, which begets another. It has to. I mean, if you say I was at the doctor's and they say, how was it? And then you go, yeah, let's say your wife runs into the doctor. You know, like it just it's this tangled web of of deceit that's I can imagine difficult to keep up. You know, in that regard, it's amazing how our conversations just developed. So I'm going to say something that will strike people at the outset as odd at best and maybe even bad at worst. So when I meet somebody who's having an affair, because people open up to me, in most instances, my first reaction, I may know more and change my reaction, is I feel bad for them. I obviously feel bad for the spouse, that's a given. But my sense is, and by the way, I believed this when I was your age, well before I was ever married. I sensed that most people who have an affair, it is not because they're bad. And oh my God, I can't believe I'm saying this to you. One of my favorite Bible commentaries is by Richard Elliot Friedman. He is a brilliant scholar, University of California, San Diego now. I think he's at the University of Georgia, a major biblical scholar. And if I say that, you can believe me because I know my Bible. And he's written a commentary on the Torah, which I love. I love it. And obviously I'm writing my own. So I refer to his. Under adultery, in other words, the commandment, thou shalt commit adultery. He wrote, I wish I had the entire, I could find it, but we don't have breaks during Dennis and Julie, but I would like to read it exactly. But he wrote, and I just read this to my synagogue this past Sabbath, I read his line about this. That good people commit adultery, and he italicized good. And I thought that this guy's human. And I've been faithful, so I have no self -interest in this. But to assume that everybody who commits adultery is evil is beyond simplistic. You commit murder, okay, if that's not evil, you could say, well, you could say a good person could commit evil, could commit murder. It's a bit of a stretch. It could happen, but generally speaking, that's not true. But anyway, good people who commit adultery, and by good, I mean the non -serial adulterers people who just go from affair to affair, I have no defense of as a human being. You mean like a one -time thing? Yes, or fell in love. If somebody falls in love with somebody else while married, it usually means there's a lot problematic in the marriage. People in love with their spouse don't fall in love with another spouse. Okay, this is such a good topic, and I want to pause and say what we always say. We had no idea that we were going to discuss this. I love that about this show. It just blossoms. Because it's real. It's real, and it's incredibly spontaneous. Okay, a lot of questions. This is where I'm going to evoke the, what do you call your radio show, the Human Laboratory? This is where this is particularly useful. So most people who tell you about their infidelity, I'm assuming most of them are male? Or is it even? Yes, that's correct. What would you say the percentage is? Of those who tell me? Yes. It's high. It's 75%. Male? Yeah. Okay. And usually, do they tell you that they're unhappy in their marriage? Yeah. And what is the most cited reason for the unhappiness? They don't feel loved by their spouse. Loved in what way? You're tough. I'm not trying to be tough. She is tough. All right. Maybe, okay. You don't want to go there. No, no. There's nowhere I don't want to go. Anyway, even if I don't want to go, I go there. That's true. So, okay. For the record, generally speaking, a man who feels sexually fulfilled with his wife is going to stay faithful. This is so foreign to women that they just have to take my word for it. That's not how women think. Women do not have affairs because they're not sexually fulfilled by their husband. Some might, I fully acknowledge, but they don't feel emotionally fulfilled. That's much more a woman's reason, and I have just as much sympathy for her as for him. It's not, all I'm saying is, and I don't even remember how we got on this, but it's amazing that we did. How did we? Yeah. It's funny. I usually remember the genesis of a subject, but all I'm saying is when I meet people, my first reaction is not, wow, that's evil. If I met a murderer, yeah, or not even a murderer. Frankly, doctors who give hormone blockers to 10 -year -olds are doing evil. I have much more contempt for them than for somebody who had an affair. Okay, so let me ask you this. Let's say you got a call from a guy who was five years into his marriage. He has three or two young children, and he calls you and he goes, Dennis, I am not happy in my marriage. It's not awful, but I'm not happy, and I have my eyes on another woman. What do I do? Do I stay in my marriage that's unhappy, or do I leave because I'm unhappy? I'd say do everything possible to make yourself happy in your marriage, which by the way involves obviously working it through with your wife, but it also involves working it through with yourself. So, I'm a guy's guy. I'm male as as they come. So, men really relate to me. Happily, a lot of women do too, but it's not the same thing. Male -male is not the same as female -male. Okay, so I understand men really well, and I explain men to women. So, both sexes have to adopt the Prager notion of not having too many expectations. I think it's fair to say, nobody says this, because sex is ironic. We have a sexually drenched society, and yet people never talk honestly about it. That is very well said. It's mind -boggling. It's mind -boggling. You're so right, and people get upset when you talk about it. That's right, because I'm honest. So here is something I would say to men, guys, just know you are not going to have the sexual life you fantasized in the vast majority of cases. It's just the way it works. You mean when you get married? Yeah, when you get married. I'm sorry, that's right. I wasn't clear. Yes, when you get married. And therefore, you enjoy what you have. Now, obviously, I'm not going to give it a time factor limit. It's different when you're 25 than when you're 55 or 75. All of that is real. But I remember when I was in high school thinking, wow, to be married, you have this woman anytime you want. Oh, gosh. Such a male thought. Exactly. This was worth the entire broadcast. My comment and your reaction? I think I represent all women. Yes, exactly. Watching and listening. And I represent all men. That's the point. So that was my fantasy in high school. Oh, my God, it must be the greatest possible situation being married. She's there whenever you want her. So men… I just looked at the camera. So men have to understand it's not going to be that way. Are there exceptions? I'm talking in general, of course, there are exceptions to every rule in life. So I really ought to, if I had the time, I would write an advice book to men. Oh, you really should. Who is it? George Gilder wrote that man book? That man book? Sexual Suicide and the Naked Nomad. He deeply influenced me. So, men need to understand… By the way, we all need to understand… I don't know what women's fantasies are about marriage. Her fantasies are not likely to be fully realized either. So it's best probably not to have fantasy… I don't care if you have fantasies, it's fine to have a fantasy life, but in the sense of directing you in your emotional reaction is not a good idea. And in your reality, it can't direct your reality too much. That's right. So I have told men, I'll tell you where I feel for men. And that is, if they're married to a woman, I'm just talking the sexual arena now. If they're married to a woman who doesn't take care of herself physically, that's given the power of looks in the human species, it's the female that attracts the male. I know there are gorgeous men who attract women, but most men are not gorgeous. What attracts women to men is not that they're gorgeous. they're Certainly when reached by age of 30, a high school girl is going to go, Oh God, is he gorgeous? Oh God, you know, that's fine, it's part of life. But one of the biggest ways you show you love your husband is by taking care of yourself physically, trying to look good. And the proof is you tried to look good when you dated. Why did you stop trying once you got married? That's not fair to him. You're right, and it's not fair when men have B .O. and also don't take care of themselves, which I know you recognize. No, of course, but that's not the same thing. The B .O. holds for both, but looking gorgeous or as gorgeous as you can, I mean, looking cute. In peacocks, the male attracts the female. In humans, the female attracts the male. It's just the way it works. And if she succeeds in doing it, he gets aroused and they make the next generation. That is how human sexuality works. I really love what you said a few minutes ago about we live in this over sexualized society that also gets so upset when people like you and me talk about sexual matters, not to overhype our importance, but people who are brave enough to talk about sex within with a Judeo -Christian good values worldview are so valuable. I don't understand. Yeah, but a lot of them do, but they're not real. A lot of the religious people who talk about sexual matters are not rooted in the real world. So what is an example? Masturbation. Wow, welcome to Dennis and Julie. But the proof is nobody feels that they can talk about it. Yes, that's true. I mean, I debated a guy, very religious guy, seen by hundreds of thousands of people on the internet. He said, masturbation is evil. And he's speaking from a religious point of view. Evil? I said, I looked at him and I said, evil? I mean, if he says it's a sin, fine. Every religion has a whole list of sins. But evil? And I challenged him. I said, are you serious? It's evil? I mean, child molestation is evil. Genocide is evil. I know. Masturbation is the charge. Of course it does. So religious, you're right about the Judeo -Christian values perspective. Unfortunately, a lot of religious people have made religion look silly and people have therefore rejected it. You know, you're right. I think a lot of people point to something like that and go, that's just, that's too far for me. It's too far, exactly. It's difficult, the job of being religious, because you obviously want to promote good values, but you also want to be real and recognize that there are certain thoughts and proclivities and actions that a lot of human beings partake in. And so it's about mitigating the, I was going to say mitigating the harm of those, but allowing them to happen as long as they don't go too far or as long as they're not harmful. Yeah, that's right. So people should read a book by an Orthodox rabbi, Shmueli Boteach, who's a well -known rabbi, B -O -T -E -A -C -H, in English, Boteach, but it's pronounced Boteach, and it's called Kosher Sex. It's a great book. That's a good title. Great title. And whole his thesis is, you keep sex within a marriage, but within a marriage, do whatever the hell you want, providing the other person agrees, obviously. And, you know, as raunchy as it may sound to the outsider, if you two agree to it, the only restriction is that it's not with another. You know, God, of course, I forgot my train of thought. I just I really marvel at how real this is. And sometimes when you make these comments, I think, God, he is gutsy. He really goes there. You know, I am gutsy. I want to tell you, this is very revealing about me. People will take it for what it's worth. I decided very early in my life, if I want to do good in this world, that's all I've ever wanted to do. I will not shy away from putting myself out there and knowing I'm going to get slapped. And that's the reason I do it. It's not fun to talk about masturbation, but I know how many people are traumatized by the message you're doing evil. And it makes religion and God look bad, and I don't like that. Mm hmm. And here's the thing, also, it's uncomfortable to acknowledge, but it's the truth. People do the like I mean, this is the whole point of the conversation. People do these things. What are we going to pretend like they don't exist? We have to deal with them. And I think it's cowardly to run away. Look, I have told you, Dennis, that I grew up in a house that didn't talk about these matters. And I'm grateful, actually, because I think there are certain boundaries that ought to be respected. And I there's a time and a place to discuss things like this, but we do have that forum to do it. And I don't understand I don't understand when people deny reality. We are seeing the harm in the United States today of denying reality, including in the sexual arena. I mean, that's this whole hookup culture thing by by contorting reality to make women believe that they want sex as much as men is harming women. Plain and simple it is. Is it uncomfortable to acknowledge the reality of males extreme sexual proclivities? Yes, but we have to because we're seeing the consequences when we don't. So I applaud you. And I do think sometimes I'm like, wow, he he's really going there. He's gutsy. But but people need a good role model for these matters. Well, you don't make a good world if you're not gutsy. True. You can't build a good world on cowardice. And it's so hypocritical because people people have sex. People do these things. And I don't I don't I dislike the people that that are on some kind of moral high ground when they talk about this stuff. It's like, please, you do it to your human being. Don't act like you don't partake in these things that you decry. Right. And some of them probably don't. But my question is, are they better human beings in general? You know, I talked I said to you what Richard Elliott Friedman said, that a lot of people who commit adultery are good people. It's because it's it's weakness more than anything or or something else. I'm not talking about serial adulterers.

A highlight from 1255. CBDC's vs Stablecoins U.S. Hearing | FULL BREAKDOWN
"All right, so today we're going to dive into CBDCs, stablecoins, and a hearing. All of this happening around what this might look like, both in the government -issued CBDC or possibly even the private sector. I'm going to break it all down for you. We've got a ton of clips. You guys don't want to miss it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in a Tech Path. All right. We're going to get started here. This is a pretty big hearing. It goes through a lot around the development of CBDCs and whether or not central bank digital currency in case you guys are brand new to our channel and don't understand what that is. You're going to learn a lot here about what's happening with electronic money for you and possibly a controlled state money at some point. This is coming over from the Financial Services Committee. This is a hearing entitled Digital Dollar Dilemma, the Implications of a Central Bank Digital Currency and Private Sector Alternatives. And that's really kind of the crux of the matter. We're going to go into it. There are several people that are in this hearing. We'll break down each one of them, give you guys a shortened version because this is multi -hours that we've boiled down into about 12 minutes of clips. You're going to love it. All right, so let's go to our first clip right here, kind of give an intro. Let's check this one out. We're here to better understand what central bank digital currencies are and the concept of digital money to compare CBDCs to privately issued payment stablecoins. So let me be unequivocally clear here for this audience. There is no support for a CBDC in Congress except from those on the fringes who think somehow a CBDC might be an amazing solution to many unstated global problems. Several members, Mr. Emmer, Mr. Mooney, Mr. Auchincloss, and I have introduced bills stating that the Federal Reserve does not have the authority to issue a U .S. CBDC. I particularly want to say thank you to Mr. Auchincloss, Mr. Torres, and Mr. Nickel for their work on our bill and demonstrating that this isn't a controversial or partisan point of view. All right, so you may want to look at some of the bills that they've introduced. I'll just cut back to this page here on McHenry's website here. So they have the House Bill 3402, which is the power of the Mint Act, the Digital Dollar Prevention Act, and also the CBDC Anti -Surveillance State Act. That's what he is mentioning there. So I want to go to this next clip that goes into a little bit deeper around how this hearing is going to play out. Listen in. There are many myths surrounding CBDCs, and I will use my time to discuss what I consider the three most important. First, issuing a CBDC would not help preserve the status of the United States dollar. It would likely damage it. The dollar's renowned status is owed to the strength of the American economy and its legal protections for private citizens relative to many other countries. Anyone who wants to use the dollar would lose a layer of protection from that type of government abuse. The second myth is that a CBDC would expand financial inclusion by providing a new source of financial services for America's unbanked and underbanked populations. That unbanked and underbanked Americans primarily are in that situation because either they don't have enough money to have an account or they don't want to give their personal information to a bank or the government. While some proponents argue that a CBDC lowers the cost of providing financial services, that's true only if the government subsidizes those costs or chooses to waive the same level of regulatory scrutiny it requires of private firms. It's also the one that causes those unbanked Americans to say they don't trust banks. All right. So as you can kind of see, he's setting up the committee or the hearing, I should say, to really kind of frame it because there is a good guy and a bad guy in this. I think you'll start to picture it out. But Norbert actually coming in from the Cato Institute does do a good job of kind of setting the stage. Let's go to our next clip. This is going to be our clip three. And in this clip, it's going to get into where the abuse could come from. Listen in. There is no discernible reason for the United States to move toward a CBDC right now. So if the liabilities with CBDC increase, so too must the Fed's assets. The Fed could buy more Treasury securities to match CBDC, but that could possibly invite pressure on the Fed to issue more CBDCs to, in turn, absorb more government debt. And overall, that dynamic could further erode the limited fiscal discipline that we have remaining. All right. So a lot's already on the Fed's plate. They already have to deal with inflation they're dealing with. Now they probably have to go into where they're realizing the management of a central bank digital currency. Again, these are the challenges, I think, that would occur and would create that abuse that we see in government agencies so often. I think as you look at not only the scenario, because in this particular hearing, there's quite a few people against the CBDCs, but there still are people that are vying for CBDCs and how that plays out. Let's get into the banking industry, and I want to go to this next clip, our clip four, that talks about the banking industry and how they'd be affected. Listen in. We believe that at this point, there is little evidence that a CBDC would bring measurable benefits to the U .S. economy or consumers. A so -called flight to quality is something that we fear would be almost inevitable. In times particularly of financial stress or instability, a CBDC would be viewed likely as the ultimate safe asset, and depositors would likely be incentivized to pull the deposits out of the banking system and put them into CBDCs as a safe asset, which would reduce the availability of deposits available to lend out and, moreover, increase the cost of credit. Banks have led numerous efforts to improve the speed and security of payments. Zelle is another example of bank -led innovation. A bank -owned peer -to -peer payment service through which transferred funds are available almost immediately. All right. So a couple of things there, you know, she did hit, remember, she's representing the banking industry. So if CBDCs were to come to light, the banking industry would cause, I think it would be somewhat of a collapse overall. And she is correct, is that the reduction of deposits in any kind of pressured economy would fly to, you know, a capital that feels more secure, feels more secure. And this would essentially crater the economy through the lack of business credit, the lack of liquidity in the markets, and essentially a disruption completely of the banking system. Now, that may be the evil plan. We don't know. But I think the banks are going to fight this pretty, pretty hard. She mentioned Zelle, which is absolutely a no -go. I mean, Zelle is absolutely trash. It is not a platform. I think that's where blockchain starts to play into an opportunity for these digital payment systems to be implemented, providing that we can get some clarity on the legislative landscape. Let's go over to our next clip, which is our clip five. This is talking about eCash, which is their idea of a solution. Listen in. I worry about some of the recent false narratives and fear mongering, much of which has been fueled by the crypto industry itself. That fear mongering around a CBDC being weaponized as a tool for government surveillance or control. This is why I've introduced the eCash Act. This bill directs the Treasury to design and pilot a digital version of cash and would complement the Fed -issued CBDC. It would allow individuals to make instant peer -to -peer payments with no consumer data or transaction tracking and without the use of a bank account. Today, I support the call for a digital dollar system, including CBDC, Fed accounts and eCash. When discussing privacy, the digital dollar system and CBDC should be compared to the existing systems that we are already using. We envision hardware devices, so those can be cards similar in size to an existing debit or credit card, or they can be secured SIM cards or something like it on a phone that would enable hardware -based transactions and for people to make payments as they do today with paper cash for everyday things without fear of government or corporate surveillance, which occurs in tandem when we use digital payments today. All right, so this is the official site of the eCash Act, and it gets into some of the detail that they're talking about, but there's a lot of problems with this. One item, replicate the anonymity and privacy -respecting features of physical cash, okay. To the greatest extent reasonably practically possible. So this is telling me maybe they don't have the full case of anonymity and privacy worked out just yet. Secured hardware issued and or authorized by the government, that's another issue that would be a problem.

A highlight from Ep375: Implement These 7 Things If You Don't Want To Podfade - Katy Murray
"Am a huge fan of being able to have solid takeaways when I listen to a podcast. And I know with like yours, you talk about how you help someone who wants to be on your podcast get everything in one spot. And that's awesome. It's here's one, two and three things that you can do today to be successful and to grow your business. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. Hey podcaster, it's your host, Adam A. Adams. And today we've got Katie Murray on the podcast. We are going to be talking about her show. She's done coming up on a hundred episodes, which is awesome. And as well, she serves business owners. So her podcast is called ginger biz, the podcast with Katie, the link is already in the show notes. So go ahead and scroll down. She was a photographer on the side. She has a full -time job right now. She was also doing photography and then she lost the podcast. And now she's got a firm where she supports business owners utilizing the, her team, which is mostly VAs as I understand. Is that right, Katie? Yes, sir. Coo coo. So you help people with random things, like a few different things. One of them is Pinterest growth. So if you're listening and you're like, I want to launch a Pinterest. I want to grow a Pinterest. I don't know how to do it. I'm not sure what I'm doing. Katie does that. Her team does that. They also help with blogs, a little bit of website copy, not like building the website literally from scratch, but doing the copy to make sure that your website is reaching out to the right people. And we're going to jump in and find out her history of the last. Since let's see, it's probably been over a year, which means are you publishing more than once a week on average? Because it seems like you are. Yes. I generally do one solo episode on Tuesdays and then a guest episode on Thursdays. And have you always done it like that? Because you'd probably be over a hundred episodes already. Correct. Did you do like one for a while? Yeah. So the guest ones come and go right now. They're pretty fluent. Like we're doing good with that content, but definitely in there. It was kind of figuring out our steps. Okay. So let me ask you, and I think this would super beneficial for the listener. You started your podcast over a year ago and you've learned a couple of things along the way about podcasting even mentioned that some of the things are becoming more fluent. So where I want to start is like, Katie, if you were launching a brand new podcast with just the knowledge in your head that you've learned along the way, what are some things that you would make sure to do or do differently than the first go round? What would do now if you were launching? Yeah, great question, Adam. So I would say the first thing is kind of figure out what I wanted to do with guests straight out the gate so that I knew. And then I put a workflow in place, which has been amazing. I have an intake form. It asks every single guest the same questions and it slates me for rolling into their intros and getting them set up for the recording and getting the media out to them. And I should have been doing that from the get go before it used to be like, Hey, Adam, you want to be on my show? Cool. What do you want to talk about? And then it was just a lot of back and forth. Now I can hop in a group where I can meet somebody and say, Hey, here's a link to the landing page. It tells you all about my podcast and right on that page, you click apply to be a guest and boom, boom, boom, it's so seamless. And it literally takes me like six minutes to get a guest outline slated and ready to go with links and everything. So when they apply with your new intake form, the application to jump on the podcast, it might take them more than six minutes to put in all the information, but it takes you six minutes or less to know exactly what to do. Yeah, I would say on average, it takes people like 12 minutes to complete it. Now that's given that they know what they want to talk about. They have to have some sort of expertise because it says, what topic do you want to discuss? And what are three to five questions that I can help ask to keep the flow of the podcast going? So I have had a couple of people stumble on that. They're like, well, I don't know what to talk about. And so that's why I created the landing page to say, here's the people that I serve, here's what I do. And then they can kind of vet it themselves to see if they're a good fit. It's a little more of a hands -off approach. Okay. So you got a landing page and it says who you serve, like who is the perfect avatar? Who's the listener. And I think that's really smart. Like somebody who's launching a podcast right now, here's an issue that I see all the time. We don't, most of us don't understand who that avatar is ourselves. Even if we do, we're horrible at translating that to the guest who's coming on the show. And what that seems to do is people come on the show and their first thought is I need to self promote. I need to wiggle in a story about a client and they are thinking of a lot about themselves and they're not always thinking about who is your perfect listener. And I know that when I go on somebody else's show, I always ask like, who's listener, what are they worried about? So I can really understand that and then cater each of the answers to questions toward how to serve that person. So it's not coming across just as self -promotion. And so one thing that you've done is you've gotten that right up front. So they go to the landing page, they read about this and then they apply and it helps them to be more focused on your listener and hopefully less on themselves and what they have to promote. Is that part of it? Yeah, totally Adam. And something with that, that is beneficial, then I'm not rejecting as many people because I'm not like, Hey, Adam, unfortunately like that doesn't fit with what I want to talk about. And I think it enables people who may not be avid listeners or even listened at all to Ginger Biz. They can still step in and be an extension of me and help promote the overall message that I want to share. Let's talk about the title of the podcast and let's talk about your perfect listener. So you identify the perfect listener and I love that you put it on the landing page. Could you take a what they're going through and what you help them with? Yeah, absolutely. So I would say that my average listener is probably 30 to 35 -ish and they are zero to two years at the business or entrepreneurship, whether it's full -time or as a side hustle. And it's someone who has lots of ideas, but only has two hands and can't grow past their own knowledge base. So Ginger Biz, the podcast comes in as a pocket cheerleader and and encourager an advocate for here are tips and tricks that have worked for me. Here's what hasn't worked, but here's the solution. And just kind of putting it all together with very, very tangible things. I'm a huge fan of being able to have solid takeaways when I listen to a podcast. And I know with like yours in one of your previous episodes, you talk about how you help someone who wants to be on your podcast, get everything in one spot. And that's awesome because that's the kind of thing I want to hear. That's what Ginger Biz does. It's not these lovey -dovey stories of how we've been successful. It's here's one, two, and three things that you can do today to be successful and to grow your business. Yeah. I want to ask a question because as I look at the podcast artwork and the title, the title is simply Ginger Biz when it's just written out. And then you can see that the person in charge, the person, the host is Katie Murray. And then when you look over at the podcast artwork, it's going to be the white background. It'll say in the middle with the logo, Ginger Biz, the podcast with Katie. I'm curious if you've considered making at least a tagline because like I'm thinking about that perfect listener who's wanting to offload some stuff, wanting to start the 35, they're zero to two years in. And I'm curious if what they type in is automatically going to find you. Like if we're typing in ginger as like the reason what we're trying to listen to. So how have you thought about that? Is it, is it working? Is it not working? Are you adding anything to it? What do you think there? But it's funny you say that just before I jumped on with you, I've been in the process over the last month trying to figure out the perfect tagline because I want to introduce merchandise. And when listeners listen and rate my show, I want to randomly pick people to give merchandise, but as conceited as I may be, they don't want my face and then ginger biz with Katie on it. So I am trying to work towards picking a tagline. Most of my listeners, I think right now come through TD, targeted daily engagement. So it's not necessarily from a search engine. So that's something that I can definitely grow in. So yes, I've given it a lot of thought, but I'm super indecisive. So trying to figure out the perfect tagline is definitely a little challenging. Okay. So you mentioned something that I hadn't heard this term, these three letters before. I think you said T D E and was it targeted daily engagement? Yes, sir. So how do you do that? Like if we've got a listener who wants to grow their podcast, sounds like this is the way that you get your listeners. Is that part correct? This is how you find them. So how does the listener find listeners? How does the other podcaster find their listeners using TD? So Adam, it might be similar with how you and I ran across each other. We're in a group online and I'm interacting and I'm doing targeted daily engagement. So I'm specifically targeting who I want to either be on my show, which in this case, that was it. It was like, I was either finding a guest or wanting to be a guest. So that was the target for that day. And I do it daily because I want to continually show up in those groups or those feeds or whatever the case. I know Reddit is a very good spot to do it. So if I'm in there and I'm looking at entrepreneurial like things on Reddit and I'm interacting with those people, I make sure that the host of gingerbiz is in my bio. It's on my about me. It's all front and center. And then I just offer good insight for these people. And then they get curious, like, this girl knows what she's talking about. And then they stumble on my podcast. Now it goes back to what you said in the beginning. I'm not trying to get on this show or get in any of my areas and just sell. I'm not, Hey, come listen to gingerbiz, jump on, listen, listen, listen. Instead, I want to give them tangible takeaways. So that sparks the curiosity. So it's organic. I'm not just shoving gingerbiz down anybody's throat. So that's what I consider TD and you can do it on other platforms as well. You can do it in Facebook groups. That's probably my biggest one. And that's where I've gotten the last like 40 guests that I've had, or you can do it on Instagram or Reddit or even LinkedIn has seemed to be a pretty cool spot to start getting to know people and not to be too long -winded, but an additional point of that is. If I know Adam that I'm launching podcasts, one -on -one a course that would be perfect for your listeners. I want to go and interact with you and become a voice on your platform and get to know you. And then people will see us interacting online and that'll kind of grow it. So that's another form of TD. Cool. So you've had like 40 ish guests that came from that you've had close ish to a hundred episodes as we're recording now, and probably more when it launches, when this is being published since you're doing a couple of weeks and I'm looking at the ratings and reviews. And I wanted to find out like, if you're focused on getting that social proof, the rating and review or not. And if you are, I'm curious if you talk to guests or clients or friends or family to maybe give you that social proofing on your show. Absolutely. So after I do a guest episode, I do a couple of different things. Bear in mind that my podcast is secondary to business, although we are pivoting that so that it's more monetized and hopefully more the sole income for me. But that being said, I send a thank you, whether it's a gift or a card to each of my guests personally. And then I do ask them to drop a rating for me. And then in my newsletter, which like my email campaigns, I also request people to leave reviews. So I'm constantly asking people to leave reviews. I've done that with photography. I have over 150 reviews for KMP and I found that that's been hugely beneficial. So I am working towards that. Yes. Hey, do you still do the photography at all or did that go away? No, I still do. Definitely paired it back and maybe this gives some insight, but I'm multi -passionate entrepreneur. So I have triangle. I am a human resource profession by day. I have my podcast and branding photography to support other businesses.

A highlight from Drive My Car (2021}, (Japanese) Movie Review
"What's happening everybody? We're back again and this time Ben and I are covering another 2001 film. This one is a Japanese one called Drive My Car. Ben? Again, this is a movie that was told to us by one of our listeners. It was suggested so we threw it into the mix. We have a lot of stuff that we have to review from you people for sending us your suggestions. So don't think we don't listen. We do go off on our own because we do have our own agenda also, but we do have your stuff ready and about to be done. You're giving us time. Yeah, we're only two people. We can only watch so many movies a week, but let's get into Drive My Car. We had just covered Celine Sakama's Petit Maman which was an hour and 12 minutes and this movie is three hours long. This movie is, I will say, mesmerizing in parts and very atmospheric, but I get a little tedious in parts. A lot of scenes of driving the car, which I understand it's in the name, but... Yes, I agree. Three hours, I felt that it did not need to be three hours long. I really did. The movie's good and there's a lot of things in it that make you think. There's a lot of metaphoric phrases in it that we'll get into, but the three hour part, I was sitting there going, okay, I got up and got coffee, came back, sat back down and I didn't felt I'd miss a beat of the movie. I just like to say that. I'm telling you, it is a good, good, good, good movie, but for me, three hours was just really long to sit through. I find three hour movies to be long as well. Just a sidebar, I did go see Oppenheimer in the theater. That movie is three hours long and I felt the same exact way. I was like, why am I seeing all these shots of people riding horses? I don't know. I think there's a time and a place for a long movie and if you're filling it with things that are meaningful, not saying that this movie had a lot of frivolous moments, but I do think that it could have been whittled down just a little bit. This movie is based on a short story, which also shocked me because it was three hours long, but I have not read the story. Have you been? No. No, I didn't know it was a short story until you just told me, so I'm like, oh really? I'm like, how? How? One thing that I think is very interesting in this movie and one thing that was a very conscious choice by the director was that they don't drop the title card until 40 minutes in and I was like, that's a power move. All this was just exposition. Yeah, it was really confusing for me because my is television broken right now and it tells you everything people are doing, so it actually instead of just coming up on the screen, I actually was like, and the director is, and I'm like, oh, what is going on here? That would drive me legitimately insane. I would be like, no, I can read. No, so the movie is very good. It follows a screenwriter and actor in living Tokyo or yeah, Tokyo, and he goes to Hiroshima sometimes to do panels and to put on a play. He is doing a play of Uncle Vanya written by Anton Chekhov, so I will say starting off, it is a Japanese movie and one of the main points of it is a Russian play, so it is bleak. There it is. It is a bleak film, so if you're looking for any hope in this movie, there's some at the end, but it is barely there. It follows this playwright or this actor and his screenwriter wife and they work together. She's a screenwriter. He's an actor and obviously in the beginning of the movie, she is alive. He's attached to his red car. It looks like they have a good relationship. They do this thing where they will have sex in after or during. She will tell him stories and she won't remember them at the end and she'll ask him about it and be like, oh, what did you think? What did you think? Then he tells them back to her. We'll get more into that later because that plays a bigger part later. One day, he leaves to go to Hiroshima, but his flight gets canceled, so he comes back home. When he comes back home, he sees her obviously having an affair, but he doesn't say anything and he leaves. Then he comes back from his trip and everything is fine. Then he has to go out for a meeting one day, but instead we find out that he just ends up driving around and she's like, hey, when you get back, we should talk. When he gets back, she has suffered a brain hemorrhage and has died. Then the movie picks up two years after that. The person she's having an affair with is the lead actor of her newest play. He plays into this movie a lot. You'll find out later on why. The part when she had the brain hemorrhage and died, I wasn't expecting that. I was not expecting that and I knew that she was going to die because you read it in the description. It's not a secret that she's dead. I thought it was going to happen in a car accident. I kept waiting and then the car accident happened when it was just him. You find out that he has glaucoma and is going to go blind if he doesn't use these eyedrops. This is devastating to him because he loves driving. Then we see some scenes where they're driving together and then of course after she dies, he does drive himself. Then he gets a two -month residency as directing this play in Hiroshima for a festival. What I thought was really cool about this play was that it was a multilingual play. It wasn't just in Japanese. They had it in Japanese, Korean. Some people spoke English. There was a Korean sign language or Filipino. I thought that that aspect of it was actually very cool. I liked how they had all the different languages on the screen behind them and showing how stories are universal even though language is not. We have all these language barriers but we can still tell the same stories and have it be important and matter. I thought that was really cool. I really, really appreciated that. As he's casting this play, the actor that was having an affair with his wife comes in and auditions. You can see he's kind of distraught by this but he also gives him the lead role of Uncle Vanya. The guy's confused. He's like, Uncle Vanya should be old. Why aren't you playing this? He's like, no, no, no, no. We'll age you up with old age makeup. You can do this. You can do this. I thought that was really interesting because you kind of get the idea that he has this sort of, not ill will, but he has some reservations about him. He has some aggression. You can see it during his audition. He kind of cuts the audition short even though he's doing a great job. I thought that that, and then you kind of see that dissipate as they start to understand a little bit about each other. I thought he cut the scene short because he was trying to kiss the girl. I thought it reflected on his wife, his memory of the moment. He was like, that's enough. I think that's what he wanted to say when he went in the house but he didn't. He just decided to leave. When he saw him doing that to that girl, he wanted to step in and be like, no, done. I thought that's why he did that. Yeah, agree. Then they're going through the play and as a stipulation of his, he has some requests. He likes to live an hour away so he can rehearse lines in the car. How he does that is it is through a tape. The tape has every part but Vanya's because he would read Vanya's lines. A stipulation of the festival is that talent cannot drive themselves because they had a car accident a while ago and they're like, we're trying to avoid that. To avoid that, he has a driver and she is a great driver.
A highlight from Petite Maman (French), (Drama/Fantasy) Movie Review
"What's world? happening It's Kira and Ben back again. This week we did a super episode last week and this week we are going to be doing a much shorter film. We are covering the 2001 Petit Maman by Selene Sakama. It is an incredible film. This was my first time watching it for the podcast. It has been on my radar because I was a fan of her first film Portrait of a Lady on Fire and I'm very excited to talk about her, to talk about this movie. Ben, tell me about your history with it. So these all come in from our followers and they give us these great movies to watch. They say, you know, you would really enjoy these movies. So I made the list and you were like, oh I know this one, I want to watch this one. So I went off your say and I was very pleased. Very pleased. I will say this movie is very accessible. It clocks in at an hour and 12 minutes. So it is wildly short. I think if the movie was any longer, I don't know how good it would be. I feel like everything that needed to be done was very encapsulating. It was a good, complete, concise story and I was overall very happy with it. Ben, what are your thoughts? Yeah, it makes you really think about your relationship with your parents and what you truly know about them. Like their history, them being children. What did they like to do? What emotions did they have? What feelings did they have growing up? And it made me sit back and go, hey, I really didn't know crap about my parents. I just knew that they were good workers, they loved me, but I didn't know the in -depth detail of their lives. And I totally agree with that and that's why I love how this story is told. I think when we are children, we don't know anything about our parents and as we grow up, I think they start to unfold themselves to us. But I love it. So I'm going to kind of briefly talk about what the movie is and then we'll get more into it. So the story follows a small girl, Nellie. She is eight years old and her maternal grandmother has just passed away and they were very close. And then so now they're cleaning out the grandmother's house and her mom Marion's childhood home. And obviously, Marion is struggling with the death of her mother and she leaves abruptly in the night without saying goodbye to Nellie. And so then Nellie goes out to play in the And there she comes across a young girl and the young girl has the same name as her mother and as they walk through the woods during a rainstorm back to this mystery young girl's house, it is actually the house that her, it is her grandmother's house and this is her mother when she is eight years old. And in this home, her grandma is still alive in her young age. And I think it's really sweet because I think there's a lot of really tender moments between the two. And of course, when Nellie figures out that it is her mother, there is that panic. She flees, she runs away, but she cannot stay away and she keeps going back. And I think there is a moment at the end when Marion as the eight -year -old drives away and Nellie goes back to her house. And when she's back, Marion, who is now her mother's age and the mother that she knows is there and they share this really sweet moment together. And I think, so I think they both were experiencing it. I don't think it was a one -sided kind of hallucination on Nellie's side. I think this is a little bit more surreal where both people did experience what we saw and it was really touching. So I think there are two conversations that stood out the biggest to me. One is when they're having the sleepover and they're talking about how she was like, oh, I don't know if you wanted me. That scene was devastating because it turns out that Marion had all these dreams of being an actress and wanting to do all this, things that Nellie never knew about. And she could not because she got pregnant at a very young age. But even as a child, Marion is like, no, I'm dreaming about you. I want you. You've never stopped anything in my life. And I think that was so beautiful and so powerful. And then the second one, the second conversation is kind of a continuation of that when they're saying goodbye. And both of those moments really resonated and stuck with me. Ben, what do you think? Oh yeah, a hundred percent. There was a lot of parts of the movie where you could see like the bond between the mother and the daughter is so strong. Even as a child, she's like, you know, I've always wanted you. And, you know, it's like reassuring the daughter because the daughter is kind of messed up when the mother leaves. Oh yeah. So she's kind of confused. She's like, you know, does she leave because she doesn't want to be with me or, you know, and then she's second guessing things. And at the end when she says the mother's name and the mother says her name back, you could tell, like, it wasn't a one sided situation that they both experienced that bond through time. Yes. And I thought, I thought that moment was so sweet. And I, and I thought it was really important because it showed that like, they're going to, and I believe in my heart that they're going to move forward and have this very special relationship now because they understand each other both on a different level. I think too, as parents, I'm not, I'm not a parent. So this is just all speculation on my point, but I think once you become a parent, you still try to preserve your child's innocence and you try to protect them from a lot of things in the world. And I think when you, when like, when I'm speaking like this, like when the mom regresses back down to being a child, they're viewing everything kind of the same and like, they're both being silly together. Like we see at the dinner table scene when the soup is gross, so they keep like spitting it back in. And a moment that really touched me when they're celebrating Marion's birthday is that she asks them to sing the birthday song twice because she doesn't want that moment to end. And I thought that was really beautiful because she knows, like, she has to go get this operation so she doesn't die, so she doesn't have the same illness as her mom does. And it is an unexplained illness, but we do see the mom walking with a stick. And so I don't know what it could be. Ben, what were your thoughts? I had no idea what she had. Some kind of maybe bone. Yes, and like degenerative. Or something, some kind of situation where she, her bones were fragile. I don't know. I'm not a doctor, nor do I pretend to be. But it was kind of moving that, you know, you find out this happened right before her birthday. Yeah. So, and then it was going to be her birthday in the present and that's when she disappeared. So, like, I felt like maybe it was a birthday wish. Yeah, that she could go back to her mom. Yeah. Or, you know, like to experience this time together with her daughter. And like, I don't know. I don't know. They don't really get into that part of the aspect of the movie, but it is a very heart -wrenching movie if you watch it because like it shows the bond of the daughter with the mother from the grandmother to the mother to the mother to the child. And even with the father, because the father's left, you know, to pick, finish pick up the house. And you kind of get this weird feeling, at least I got this weird feeling that there was a fear of like a divorce or something. So you felt like maybe she was leaving the husband. And I was like, oh, what's going on? Because she asked him, she's like, do you remember my foot? And he's like, no, I don't remember your foot. And she kind of like gives him this look like, like I wasn't important enough for you to remember these things. And then the daughter says it later too. She goes, isn't that you don't remember? Is it that you don't listen? Yeah. So, and then you kind of find out that he just doesn't listen. He's not a bad guy. He just, he just doesn't listen. He gets caught up in his own little things. And part with the daughter, she's saying something to him and he doesn't listen to her. And like, you could tell that she understands now that he's not a bad person and the relationship isn't doomed. It's just that he's not focused on everything. Exactly. And I think too, though, we see a moment where he opens up when she goes, like, I really don't know anything about you or mom. Like, what are you afraid of? Like, what were you afraid of growing up? I know what your favorite food was. And if you liked this, but I don't know anything like, what were you afraid of? And he, and you kind of get some insight into him where he talks about being afraid of his father. And you're like, okay, like, obviously you are not afraid of like a, like a father figure unless there is something going on. So I think it shows that like, as children, we expect a lot from our parents, but we have to remember that they were children once too, and that they are their own people, not just people to us. And I think this movie really made that message like very clear. And I really appreciated that. I thought it was, I thought it was a very fresh like insight onto grief. Yeah, I agree. And as a parent, I understand a lot because like, not a lot, I'm still, I don't know a lot of crap, but I understood like giving up things because now you have a different priority, that your priorities change when you have a child. Like at first your priority is about yourself. You're like, oh, I have to, you know, I want to do this. I want to do this. I want to do this. Then you have a child. And then those priorities change because now you're like, well, I have to support my family. I have to, you know, make a life for my daughter or my son, or, you know, you have to do this. So things change in your life. I mean, not for the worst. I mean, it's actually for the better because you become, you realize the responsibilities of having to take over like the growth of some of another being. And it's, it's a beautiful thing. And you see this in the movie that like they bond real good as, as kids and the mother loves the daughter so much that she's supposed like to raise this child. And she tells the daughter that she didn't care about that because that was the most important part of her life was raising her. Exactly. And I loved, I loved that scene because I think too, as children, not, not from anything that your parents do, but sometimes you feel like, oh, like, am I wanted? Like, are they treating me this way because they don't love me or they treat me this way because of that? And I think that was, that is really important. Um, while I was watching this movie there, it was reminding me of another film only in a brief scene though, cause they're two very different movies, but have you ever seen the movie about time? Yeah. Okay. So this is not that I won't talk about about time for that much longer, but I will talk about it for a little bit. Um, it is a great movie if anyone hasn't seen it. It is a romantic comedy, but deeper than that, it is a movie about a father and son relationship. And so Domhnall Gleeson, he is the main character and he has the ability with his father, Bill Nye, and they can travel to and from time without the butterfly effect being a thing. They can, it's like pretty loose science, but there is one moment where Domhnall Gleeson is about to have a child and once like a life event happens, um, anytime that you go back, the events will be different. So that's like the only thing that matters, which makes no sense. But like I said, the science is not there, but him and his dad decide, um, before the birth of his child that they are going to go back in time together and they are going to spend one last day together. And this movie kind of felt like it was like, like a version of that where the mom and the daughter get to spend one last time together in this like sacred place that they're both attached to, to deal with their grief and to say goodbye. So I thought that was really sweet. Um, I was just like, oh, I love time travel because this movie kind of plays with time again in a way that does not affect, that is not affected by the laws of physics because two of the, the house exists on opposite sides of the woods, even though the woods are just one place. But I thought it was really cool because I think, I think if we could go, I think we take a lot of moments for granted when we're younger and we're living in them. And I think the idea of being able to go back and live in them again and really cherish the moments that you need is important. Yes. A hundred percent. I was trying to think of the movie with Ashton Kutcher. The butterfly effect. Oh yeah. It keeps on, it keeps on like, he keeps on going back and reliving the same moments over and over until finally as a baby, he decides to kill himself. That movie was so bad, but at least the science was kind of there. It was terrible. But I kept on thinking of like, like how this movie was so much better than that because this reflects on, and even though they're stuck in a time loop, like it doesn't affect time. Like, and things progress in that little area of time. Like, like the magic garden. Yes. Yes. Where like they're there, but it doesn't affect anything outside of it. And it doesn't affect anything here. And when she's, when she's with her mother as an adult, her mom actually talks about building that fort and how important it was to her. And then when she's out there, she's building the fort with her mother. And then there's a part where she goes and she does all these like nice decorations on the fort for her mother. And when her mother comes and sees it, it's like a really like emotional thing because her mother's like really like, Oh my God, it's so beautiful. You know? And I don't think she was talking about the fort. I think she was talking about her daughter. Yeah. And like what she's done and like the bond that they've created. And I think, and I totally agree with that. And I think too, you can tell that, that the mom, I also don't think wanted to leave the situation when they spend those last moments together and they're out on the boat and they're like sailing around and like, they're just like having all this great time together and they're celebrating each other and like this bond, like, and I think too, it kind of, they kind of touch on the fact that they are both only children and the loneliness that you feel as an only child and then being able to like have someone there with you. Yeah. I mean, I always like to think, I know that we've talked about how this movie is not based in science, but like in the ideas of time, time is a circle or an arch. It is not a flat line. Like we view it as, and I think that maybe this daughter did go back and visit her mother and like the mom, you know what I mean? Yeah. And that's how like, she knows that like this is who she wants. I don't know. I don't know. I think about things like that. I don't know if it's based in anything, but this is a great film. Um, Celine Sakama is obviously a female French director, um, got her fame, um, from Portrait of a Lady on Fire, which is a fantastic movie if no one has seen it. And one thing I just want to compare between the two films is they're both totally incredibly different, but atmospheric wise, she can create a gut -wrenching scene and create love and passion between two people through like, um, set design and through camera angles and through, um, sound. She's very good at creating a mood and very good at creating a lot of this like longing. And I think that's what both the, I think that's what this movie and Portrait of a Lady on Fire has a lot is like searching for what you need and searching and longing for that. No, I totally get it because I was an only child and growing up it was lonely and I saw people with brothers and sisters and that bond they had and I didn't have that. I had older parents that, you know, I basically had to help take care of. So for me it was, it was a lonely childhood and I made a lot of friends outside and that was like my family. I still call my friends my family because I didn't have that like real big family unit. Right. And, um, I do have a daughter now, but we don't have a relationship. And when I was watching this, it was sad in me because I want to have that relationship that this mother and daughter had, you know, and hopefully someday I do get that, but for right now I don't have it. So that kind of touched base with me a little bit and I was kind of like, Oh, you know, I see how sometimes parents, even though you're a parent, you're not a parent. I mean, just cause you have a child doesn't make you a parent. You got to be a parent, you know? So absolutely. And Ben, it's never too late to have a relationship. Oh, I know. I know. I will eventually. I mean, I got to wait for her to come to me. Of course. You know, I don't want to force anything cause you know, that's not being a good parent. No, you can not enact your will onto your children. You got to sit back, relax and you know, and just know that the day will come hopefully. Yes. Some, some moments from the movie that I want to talk about that I thought were really sweet and I think it shows how good of a writer Celine Sakama is when, when the movie opens up, we see them in a nursing home and we see Nellie saying, giving everyone in that nursing home, like a really nice goodbye and, and you're, and when you're first starting a movie, you're like, oh, she's a polite child. She cares about these people that her grandma was spending her last moments with. And then she has a conversation with her mom when they get back to the house and she goes, you know, I'm really sad that I didn't give grandma a good goodbye. And I thought that was really sweet because then we see her trying to give a good goodbye. Like it just made me recall that opening where she was trying to give a good goodbye to everyone because now she doesn't know and she understands the finality of death. And I think having her mom kind of reenact that goodbye with her was cathartic for both of them. I mean, obviously it's the mom gone, but I think in that one moment it was really sweet. And I think that kind of was a catalyst to make the mom either wish to go back or go back. Yeah, I, I, I agree with that. And you know, it is hard to like, like when you don't say goodbye, like I didn't get to say goodbye to my mom, kills me to this day. Didn't get to say goodbye to my dad, kills me to this day. Cause there's things left unsaid. I think that's what touched on this movie is things left unsaid. They, they went back in time and they got to talk about themselves as kids and, and experience life together. And like, it was a closure and it's not a closure forever. It's just a closure on the things that they don't know about each other. So I thought that was kind of good. Cause you know, you, you want to have that last goodbye. You really do. Like it's, it's so important and many people don't get to experience that. They have to feel that last goodbye. And it's sad cause you, you want to close it out on a, on a note that, you know, you both, you both understand the love you have for each other. And if you don't do that, you just hope that the person goes on to another life knowing that you love them. Of course. And I think too, deep down everyone, like even if you don't get to say it, I think like they know that you love them obviously, but it is, it is always better to have that closure. And I think this movie, and I think what was good too was like when Nellie was talking to Marion as they're both children and she's like, how old am I when my mom dies? And she's like, oh, you're 31 and to a child 31 seems old and Marion goes, oh, that's old. And Nellie actually goes, no, it's not. It's actually young. And I thought that that was really, really sweet cause you can see where Marion is still very childlike in that moment. Whereas Nellie experiencing the death and going through it has kind of grown up and seen the effects of it. Yeah. I, I actually on my comedy skits, I do a stint where we're talking about when I was a kid and someone said that they were my age 54. I'd be like, oh, you're going to die. I was like, now I look in the mirror and go, oh, you're going to die.

All Quiet on the Western Front: A Movie You'll Love and Hate
"Good morning, sunny. Thank you, how's it going? Good, I need to ask you about all quiet on the western front. Which I got from Netflix this week. And it's awfully good and I can't finish it. Instead I've been reading about World War I, you know, a 140,000 French man dead in four days in the first battle of the war, three years later, 20,000 Brits die in one day. They're antietam in their entire history. It's just so grim. What did you make of all quiet on the western front? All quiet on the western front is one of those movies that's very frustrating to me because it's very clearly a well made picture. I admire a lot of it. The shots were very, very well constructed. The editing was very well done. The acting is all very good. And yet I still didn't really like it very much. It really, it just insists upon itself in the sense that, you know, it's a movie about it's a movie with a very specific point. War is bad. And it wars pointless and wars meaningless and it really drives that home over and over and over again to the extent that I really think the most effective part of the film is the opening, I don't know, the first ten or 12 minutes or so, which is I agree. Like a little short story in and of itself, right? The naivete of youth concerning war. Right. So in the opening 12 minutes, there's the sequence in which a young man is basically convinced to go off to war and he goes against the wishes of the parents and he's only 17 and he dies pointlessly and tragically and the next batch of recruits gets his jacket. It's a really well done sequence, but that gets to the whole point of the movie and the rest of the movie is just that ten minutes over and over again.

Yosemite National Park is open again after being buried in snow and kcps is Mike de Walter reports following three weeks of closure the reopening is much needed for the local economy. A little more than half of the people who work in mariposa county work in tourism. That's the second highest concentration in the state of California. The impacts of the three week full closure of Yosemite National Park due to snow have been widespread, says Tony mcdaniel with the Yosemite mariposa county tourism bureau. For restaurants for activities for retail shopping, it's all had an impact. The local economy has traversed closures for fires, rock slides, and the pandemic, but mcdaniel says there is a small silver lining that this came during the off season. January and February is not a particularly busy time for Yosemite National Park. That has helped things a little bit. Had this common say June or July, it could have been potentially catastrophic. Mariposa county's primary industry is tourism, mcdaniel explains that means most of the money is coming from out of the area. The park closure means that a lot of that those dollars that people are the tourists are bringing with them aren't making their way up the hill in the mariposa county. And that is a struggle for everyone that is employed within tourism.

"12 minute" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"This is the drive to the clubs. On Bloomberg radio. All right everybody, we've got just about 12 minutes left a little bit under, more like 11 minutes left in today's session. A lot going on, watching the trade here just a quick update for you because stocks pretty much at their lows of the session. What does that mean? The S&P is down 1.2%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, we're looking at a decline of 1% NASDAQ taking the biggest hit on a percentage basis down about one and a half percent quick check. On the treasury tray because we've seen yields certainly popping up on some of that hot economic news. Tenure note with the yellow three 86 and it is just off its highs of the days to your note. Most sensitive to fed policy with the yield of 4.64 off its highs of the days. So let's get to it our market guests can van leeuwen, CEO and founder of the wealth management firm van leeuwen and company joining us via Zoom from Princeton, New Jersey. Ken, good to have you back with us. How are you? Well, thank you. Thanks for having me. Nice to be here. Well, a lot going on this week. Maddie and I try to keep on top of it. A lot of economic news and a lot of fed speak. Give us your macro take on this environment and what it means for investment plays right now. Well, it's really interesting, Carol, because what we're seeing, of course, is that, of course, today's comment about PPI indicates we think that the economy is stronger than what was anticipated. You know, we've gotten some pretty strong economic numbers the last two weeks. Especially Tuesday's number and employment number. So we think the fed and that's what's kind of pushing the market down today, right? Bullard came out and said that basically he thinks in March that we're going to have to raise again by another half a point rather than these quarter point hikes that we just went through. So again, the fed has its mandate to control inflation and it looks like they're going to be doing that. So that's what's pushing rates up, of course, and the market's down today. Ken, I want to ask you a totally wild and random question here. I know that you just wrote a little piece about how meeting with prospective clients can be like a blind date. Can you give me some of your advice? What would you tell clients to ask you if they were on a blind date with you? Well, first of all, I'd want them to ask me about my experience, right? Like, what have you done? How long have you been doing this? Of course, I have some gray hair so they can tell I've been doing it for a while. So I'd ask them about that. I'd ask them about that. I'd ask me, have they ever, you know, I don't want to explain their situation a little bit and say, have you ever worked with individuals like ourselves, myself, and can you give me some solutions to solve that? And then I'd want to say, you know, how are you qualified? I mean, what kind of designations do you have? What makes you so special? Why are you good at what you do? You know, I would also want to ask, how do I get paid? I mean, which is the ultimate question sure. So yeah, but it's a great thing going on these dates actually. It's one of the best parts of my business that I really enjoy. Well, it's important, especially because retail investors obviously we know by now they're here to stay. What is your single biggest piece of advice for retail investors today given the macroeconomic headwinds we're facing? What would you tell a retail investor to watch out for? Well, a couple of things to watch out for is that I worry about chasing a trend, okay? Like I think one of the things is that, of course, earlier in the week, we all about AI, everybody was piling into Microsoft and shown in Google. While I think that Microsoft is a great company, did it deserve the price increases that it got earlier in the week. I'm not sure of that, right? Why is that? Can I stick with you on that for a second? Why is that with Microsoft? Well, what's happening there a little bit, I think, what you're just seeing is that's because that's the next revolution. And I think investors still want the next best thing. They're still chasing that illusion. Well, it's not an illusion, but they're still chasing a big winner. Because you know, we had big winners in 2021 and 2020. Last year, not so much. But people still want that big growth stock that's going to go up 5 ten times. So as Microsoft, I'm sorry, is Microsoft something you would commit some new money to because of the AI play in the chat GPT play? We would actually, we own it currently. So we would continue to hold it, but we wouldn't chase it right now because I think there was a news report actually today that it was creating some kind of unseemly conversations when people would put requests into Bing. So that's kind of it still has to be perfected. I think it's a long way from being there. All right, Intel, let's stay with the tech space for you well. We know we've got aim at reporting in the semi space after the closing Bill. What is it about Intel specifically which feels like it's been struggling for some time to kind of make some headway and kind of get itself on a new trajectory? So one of the things that I think an overall theme of what we like is strong dividend payers Intel with a dividend yield over 5% and clearly they've struggled lately. They've lost actually ground positioning to AMD. Right. But there's a tremendous brand, and you know, long term in our belief is that brands win out. That's why we like that Intel. You know, they've got a lot of work to do. They are building these new factories in Ohio, but that's the dividend is really what is a cost. Let me follow on that, Kim, because our story and the Bloomberg by our Ian king and Ryan vlas delica talks about how Intel is among those that the street seems to be saying is prime for a dividend cut because I think at the current rate, Morgan has put out there and some other analysts at the current rate Intel's dividend projected to cost more than $6 billion this year and that you know the company's got to focus on heavy spending needed to regain its manufacturing leadership and that as a result they'll have to cut shareholder payouts. So does that still make it interesting for you? It still makes it interesting because what we've seen in the past, right? Because I think it's the overall health of the company for Intel. Yes, the dividend right now at this rate could potentially be cut, but I'd still a buyer here and it's at its low valuation. Remember, it's only selling at ten times, which is a historically low valuation for Intel to be sure. And that's kind of your view on selective tech names. I want to go over to the consumer discretionary side because that's the fun side for my perspective. Yes, that's a great side. Talk to me about, let's go to Ulta Beauty because they've got a big competitor with Sephora and obviously a lot of other big players in the beauty space. Why do you like Ulta? Well, first of all, you know, we like Ulta because it's a tremendously well managed store chain. Many great things. Now I think they're introducing where you can even get your hairs done your nails done, things that that nature there and the different stores. Also, I think they're long-term goals of expanding in China
Caller: Will the Charges Stick Against All 5 Memphis Officers?
"Anyway, I was just wondering why you didn't put the rest of the what the prosecutor said when he was talking about the police officers. If you recall, he said that all 5 of them were going to be charged with that crime while all 5 of them didn't meet this guy. But there were the ones that were standing around. So they were complicit in his death. And if you go back in time and look at some of the other deaths that's been going around the country, there's a lot of complexity going around with the cops, and this is one of the reasons why people were talking about defund the police. You know, they're concerned about the cops that are so called good cops that are standing around and not doing their job. Right. Watching the buddies do their things, you know, getting a thing off and beating people, choking them out and whatnot. And the other cops not lifting a finger to do anything about it. Yep, I get that. Now here's the problem. Second degree murder is probably gonna, they're gonna have a hard time getting that to stick to all 5 of them. I agree. You know. I agree. But I agree. But it is, but it is, this goes back to the Derek Chauvin thing when he's got his knee on George Floyd's neck for 9 minutes or 12 minutes or however long it was. Nobody else did anything about it.

"Avery held it for about 12 minutes so we can measure how much DNI we got from the same kind of key held for what we'd imagine is the same amount of time. That's it. He simply imagined that that was the amount of time that Avery held the key. And we're the conditions in prison, the same as in the scrapyard when Avery held the key the last time, of course not. There are a multitude of environmental factors that determine how much DNA's if any, is left on a given surface. And Dr Reich doesn't bother to account for them. Could you improve the item of evidence? By rubbing it on a mouth swab on a bugle swab. There was a toothbrush. The answer is those would be great sources of Vienna, you would get lots of DNA's transferred simply and rapidly by rubbing an item of evidence. Against either one of those This claim is never proven. And besides, it wasn't saliva Edna that was found on the key. It was touched DNI and the idea that there was just too much of it for it to be the result of Avery's touches Simply ludicrous. The range of touch DNAs that experts generally expect to find on an object is between zero and 150 nanograms. Investigators found 5.1 nanograms of Avery's Edna on the key. It not even close to too much DNAs to a 2012 article in Forensic magazine used various studies to provide examples of how much DNAs might be expected to be found on a given object. In one study. Ah mug held for 15 minutes produced 6.8 nanograms of DNI. Using Dr Reichs wild guess that Avery held hall Box key for 12 minutes. It is perfectly reasonable that he left 5.1 nanograms of Edna on that key.

Can we talk about how amazing Fresno County is that? I've done 12 minutes after my appointment time. Yeah, You know, that's that's one of my favorite things to talk about is how inefficient every level of government is, But this is fantastic. I will always give credit where credit is due. And if then this is This is my opening for me, and I think that it's fantastic for many, many people out there. Um s O Skip was just telling us a few moments ago, Her appointment was at 11, and she was rolling up her sleeves at 11 09. And, uh, And that's absolutely fantastic. Esso. You've got 15 minutes to weight of in observation. Then they're going to cut you loose. Now, do you have to come back for a second shot? Yes. So in 20, they're going to contact me. Everybody that gets registered. They have your email on a register you for depending on if you get your Madonna or Fizer vaccine that will depend on you know your time period. I guess so. I'm expected to get an email and then in three weeks on come back. No, you're not fully vaccinated until there's a small There's like a time period after that second vaccination for you to be fully vaccinated. Okay, so I can't let go out tomorrow and pretend like everything's okay. My understanding of the vaccine. Is that the first line you know it. Look, It's not like a needle. It's done. I'm a baby when it comes T needles, but that was set up and I didn't even crack a good The second vaccines and people are experiencing some mild symptoms. But all have been manageable people that I know that have gotten their second vaccine have gone on to be able to go to work. But I think just for strategy sake, I'm probably going to do you mind if I turn on the cider just in case on the feeling a little tired. Now one of the other things in covering all this is that one of the recommendations was to make sure that you get enough sleep the lead the week you know that you're getting your vaccine. Because being chronically tired May impact. You know somebody of efficacy. You want to make sure for your liking. Good fighting form when you get it, so I made up, you need to make sure to get the bed a little earlier this week and whatnot. Excellent, very good, And we appreciate it very much for you, Tonto. Take us along with you is you got your vaccination and take us through that experience. Ah, so I I'm thinking that maybe you could give us a call back in half an hour. So once you you get clear of that of the fairgrounds and in your car, and you passed your observation. Yes, absolutely. And and also a friendly reminder. The fairgrounds is not the only place doing it. I think it's also Sierra Orthopedic, which is kind of on the northeast side of town. Now that one is having some longer lines. So you maybe you want to make sure that you check out to get registered. And I know for some folks are you know the Internet part? Especially. We're talking about the 75 older crowd, maybe a little overwhelming. So tapping into those individuals that could navigate the Internet. You know, Like I said, I just went and got my dad's information and find him up and told him Hey, Dad, go show up so If there if you need help, don't be afraid to ask for it. Well, Awesome. Hey, Skip, I really appreciate you. You know a lot lot of times.

Who Were The Top Celtics Players Against The Raptors?
"Think to some degree it's all about where you're getting paid. Mm and where you're maximizing is minutes on a night like tonight where you get that twenty one from him in a second with that line up with Richard alongside him. Like that's all you need to seal a game, right? And again, you gotta talk about it. I mean you had that you had the second quarter run down thirty eight to fourteen. What happened in that quarter Jason Tatum, of course happened, okay, everything else falls off of that but Taylor matters forty squares 26 in the first half twenty one and that second-quarter loss. That was basically a 13 free throws. Most of those came early as well. So that was ridiculous. He was just heading and heading towards the basket and getting the calls but off of that Grant Williams played the entire second job. For 12 minutes finished a plus 24 and that second-quarter. You saw a lot more Pritchard in there. You didn't see the double Biggs come back out. It was again a lot of those a lot of the players that were playing better and who played the most minutes were all in that action in that second quarter and that's where they put the game away. That was that was I mean that was perjured. That was Jason. That was Jalen that's you know, that was and those are going to be the guys that you're going to find yourself talking
Kevin Durant dominates in long-awaited Brooklyn Nets debut
"Let's start with because this was let's say a nice present for everybody, right? C l smooth this is, um you get Kevin Durant. In his debut with the Nets, and I mean, what did you make of that performance? Eyes to things. I think number one. You look at what Kevin Durant the way he was able to play. Um, it was pretty much again his look like her but healthy. His explosion has returned. But then also it was a little caution because the Golden State Warriors as much as we thought that they were going to be this back to normal type of situation, obviously losing Clay Thompson But they had so many deficiencies. I don't know if it was really Ah, great test. I think that on the on paper, it looks good. And maybe for the first, maybe first quarter attended 12 minutes. You kind of said Hey, but I think Derwent was remarkable. They pretty much got every shot that he wanted. I just would have loved to have seen a situation perhaps, and Draymond green was out there and healthy. He was out there to be able to, you know, again, Place in solid defense. Aundre on Kevin Durant, but make no mistake. If you are Ned stand, and I think if you're a fan of Eastern Conference basketball, you could be very, very excited about the potential of a Durant and carry urban to go on with those other pieces in Brooklyn should be had been able to have a phenomenal
Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me
Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad
"The New York Post breaks a story about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. And essentially, the story is this 100 Biden, who is in fact a crack, and I mean he is is a drug addict. He's an unsavory character. He has several hey, has had many affairs with various different Women. He's he's amassed. 100 100. Biden is just a mess is a mess of a human being. And not Joe's fault, per se. I mean, there were lots of good parents who have a message for Children. But it is Joe's fault that Joe has allowed Hunter Biden to run across the world, picking up sacks of cash by trading on his last name. And that is 100,000 has been doing for years. Right victim. Sacks of cash in China picked up sacks of cash in Ukraine, and for a long time conservatives have been focused in on 100 Biden's activities with regard to charisma. Now the original narrative with regard a breeze must breeze. My Satan is a natural gas and oil company in Ukraine, 100 was sitting on the board of the company and picking up checks for $50,000 a month despite the fact that he didn't know anything. About natural gas or oil, despite the fact that he himself was a personal mess. The only reason he was on that board is because he was related to Joe Biden. Joe Biden was then the vice president of the United States and largely in charge of Ukrainian policy. Well, Joe Biden and bragged on tape about getting one of the chief prosecutor's over in Ukraine fired He threatened with hold $1 billion in foreign aid to Ukraine until they fired this guy. Joe Biden always claimed that it had nothing to do with Hunter. This prosecutor claimed that he was about to investigate bereavement that was the company Hunter was working for. The chain has never quite been made. So there's a lot of controversy over the over whether Victor Shokhin, who was that prosecutor was actually going to prosecute charisma. There was indeed a lot of focus on Victor Shokhin is a possible corrupt figure inside Ukraine. Lot of people in Europe wanted. See Victor Show can go as the chief prosecutor in Ukraine, Biden has always claimed that his firing of victim Victor Shokhin was on the up and up. Soaking has always claimed that it was corrupt. That controversy has been out there for quite a while. What is unchallenged is that Joe Biden's family members ranging from his brother to his son, use his name in order to make money for themselves. And that does have an element of corruption to it. Now, The best that you can say about it is that Joe Biden turned a blind eye to it. Right. And this is sort of like show has argued Joe Biden has said, Well, I didn't know about it. Nobody ever did anything. Nobody ever did anything, man. Nobody. Come on, man. Come on. I never no, no. Come on. Okay, so Here's the bombshell.

An earlier email from May 2014. Also shows are sky reportedly bereavement number three exact asking Hunter for advice on how you could use your influence on the company's behalf. A blockbuster correspondence is The New York Post reports flies in the face of Joe Biden's claim that he has never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. It's containing a massive from of data recovered from a laptop computer.
