Watch on average, and the money percentage means that's to some extent the wrong question. The goal is not to get in the money. The goal is to take first second or third a lot. People who are concerned with getting in the money usually lose. A lot of the best players in the world get into the money, 12 or 13% of the time, a little bit less than what the field does on average.

Rep. Andy Kim talks about the impact of anti-Asian hate
"Congressman. Andy kim of new jersey likes to say that he tries to practice the politics of humility. We saw that inaction in the aftermath of the january sixth insurrection when a photo of him cleaning debris alone from the rotunda went viral. Kim's humility is painfully present. In the conversation we had about anti-asian hate in the wake of the atlanta spa shootings and that has flared. Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic we talked about the impact of all of this on his five year old son in on himself. I didn't know what to tell my kid. And i didn't know what to say. I felt sadness. Because i knew that that was not the last time you would hear these things. Listen to the rest of this powerful conversation right now. congressman came. Thank you very much for coming to the podcast. Thanks so much for having me here today before we get into the big topic of of why we're here and and talking. Let's talk about your district. Because we you and i have spoken. Know offline before about your district which is a endless fascination for me new jersey's third congressional district right that's right. And the demographic makeup is about eighty percent wide and just under four percent asian american. That's about right. That's right and you were elected in twenty eighteen to your first term beating out of the incumbent republican and to add on top of it you are the first democrat of korean descent in the congress. The second overall how did a korean american in an overwhelmingly white district with a republican incumbent. Win election in two thousand eighteen. I'm still still trying to learn all the lessons. I'll be honest. I was why when i started running for congress twenty eighteen I remember my wife asked me. What's the chances that you can win. Said now know maybe fifteen percent. I think i was a little generous with myself at that time to my opponent. One by previous opponent he. You're right he's incumbent. Who won by twenty points in two thousand sixteen and what we ended up pulling off with twenty one point flip in two years To win the seat in now at even with that The the last democrat was re elected to see two one two in a row was before the civil war So so for us to pull is off was was a lot but look for me. This is my whole. And i i go into kindergarten. Here my oldest son's going to kindergarten here now this is this is where i love. This is where i had my first job. My first run you know. Got my first experience so many ways. And that's what. I try to convey the people here that i am a public school kid from this district that that got great opportunities because of this district went on to become rhode scholar. United states diplomat run for congress. I think that's why people appreciated what. I'm trying to bring here that honestly i'm not a knife fighting partisan politician in career public servant. I often say whether you voted for me or not. You're my boss and i talked about. I worked under both republicans and democrats. I think that that's what people are looking for. Someone who's actually not a politician end someone who's tried. Come at this from a set of public service. And i hope to be able to continue to convey to them that. That's what i'm trying to do. What mean here's what's interesting. You talk about that. Twenty one point flip In your district. When you ran the first time when you won election in two thousand eighteen you won by just two percentage points then you run for election in two thousand and twenty. Oh and i should point out that. Donald trump won the district by six points. Twenty sixteen and you talk about the big. You know how much you're the incumbent one but then in twenty twenty when you ran for re election. Donald trump won the district by but only by point two percent. But you won reelection by almost eight percent. What does that tell you about your district in how they were if anything and how they reacted to the trump presidency. Well it says a lot. And i'm still trying to dissect and analyze. It was say is it shows that that people paying attention to what i'm working on that they're not just voting straight down the line You're right either. President biden and senator both lost. My district is best election. And i was able to outperform them by about eight points but but i also think it shows that that that people are not just a straight party voters that the tens of thousands of people in this district voted for president trump in voted for me And now it's a question of why. And i've actually spoken to a number of people who voted for trump invoked for me. Part of it is about some of the issues. That are focused in on your the issues. That i give attention to life. Issues with veterans and issues specific to seniors Issues about the opioid crisis. That has hit so hard in my district so that is part of it but again a lot of people tell me that what it comes down to is just it is just the demeanor in some ways that they see me Somebody that while they may not agree with me on every issue they. They know that. I'm in this for the right reasons And i think that that's that means a lot to me. I want to see that. I am genuine ernest in my love of service and my love of this country and that kind of just wanted to make sure that. That's my northstar. Do these town halls every month over thirty three town halls. You know other things like that people like the engagement they lied. They see me working hard and hustling on their behalf of than in their family. So you know that. That's those are some of the takeaways that i that i get from neo friendly luncheon and so And that is a a a nice Dare say rosy picture of your district. However i was watching you on with My msnbc colleague Nicole wallace and and you were on talking about the tragedy in atlanta The mass shooting where eight people have died. Six of whom are asian asian american And sort of what that says about the tenor and tone of the conversation in this country and wondering from your perspective. How much of a role did donald trump play in. Fostering an atmosphere of menace daresay violence against asian-americans by using racist language to talk about the coronavirus pandemic. I the way. I sort of liking. This is that the former president certainly played a big role in in the situation. That rig i liken it to pour gasoline on a fire taking the situation in igniting even further fanning those flames. But i say that. By also recognizing that those flames existed before donald trump existed before the crowd of ours. It's going to exist after donald trump and after the krona virus I've experienced over the course of my whole life. Ever since i can remember events in my life. I remember some form of discrimination. Some former recognizing that other people see me as an other and that the that i'd never felt in my life fully comfortable that people see me as who i am. I just even go to what you just talked about before about about running for congress. I remember when i was running for congress. I talked to two political experts In the democratic party my party and they said look you seem like a nice guy in all but there's no chance you can win the seat because it's eighty over eighty percent white and less than three or four percent asian american and they told me. Why don't you think about going up to north jersey where there's a lot people that look like you and that's how the party tack to me. When i was thinking about running for congress it hurt and also someone that was a diplomat. The state department before that you know worked in afghanistan and iraq and then we found a letter on my desk when the state department telling me banned from working on anything related to korea. I never even applied to work on anything in korea and the united states state department proactively deemed me as unfit to work on an issue. Even though i had top secret security clearance born in the united states but they told me that letter basically how is that. They don't trust my loyalty

Both running the ads than also teaching how to do it in our in our other product. Twenty two people. Is that what you said. Yeah i've got twenty two employees and then a couple contractors that is impressive. I have about twenty as well and you're a lot younger than me. So i've been in business longer and it took me a long time to build up a team like that. I feel like you have grown so quickly so fast and like the best way possible. Would you agree. Yes and growing team is like and as you know twenty people it really pushes you to grow as an individual i share so yes does it. Humbly oh my goodness like if you wanna know all your fault as a leader in all the areas need to really strengthen go ahead and build the big team that will do it or you know yeah exactly going the teams the hardest thing i've ever done. That could be an imam. Okay hey manchester event. I hear ya okay. So we've got a lot to cover today and you have five of the most common mistakes that you see entrepreneurs make when they're growing their business with facebook ads now facebook. Ads is a hot topic with my audience. Whether it be my newbie students are going at it with their first launch and they might want to dabble with this book ads or those that are in their second third and beyond launch. That wanna go really really deep with ads and do a great job usually on their own to start out with and then they looked to an agency so i would love to dive into all of these mistakes. So why. don't you kick us off with mistake. Number one yeah so the first mistake is before you even get to the ads. Peace that so many people miss over whether you're of beginner and you've never run ads. But i've also talked to seven figure business owners who skip over this and continued to not do it because it's so easy to miss and that's not defining what success means for their marketing. So what that really looks like is. What's your budget and how much you're going to make from that budget and a lot of times people kinda pull out like i think spend thousand dollars in see what happens and what. I encourage in really want people to do it. Encourage you to do to get the most out of what you spend is say over the next. Let's say thirty days. I wanna make this many sales which equals this many dollars and then working backwards and deciding from that what your investment is because if you go into ads in your kind of just like picking a number and then seeing what happens what will happen is you'll start running ads in. You'll say things. Like i have no idea if this is working or not. I have no idea where to put my time in energy to get to work and then end up just turning your ads off in waiting. A few months in china have seen that play out so many times so before you even start ads weather. Like i said you're a beginner. You're intermediate your advanced. You need to go into it knowing this is exactly my budget is exactly my sales goals. So that when you start running ads you're able to kind of pick it apart in. See what isn't isn't working and you defined what that success is for yourself just like you've never tried to do something without maybe setting a goal of what that is like you say i wanna get healthy. What does that mean to you. Same with ads. If you wanna run ads what is a successful ad campaign. Look like for you and then it should be based on numbers. Okay so this is such a great place to start. Because i know what my students and my listeners are thinking right now especially if they've never ran ads they'll say okay me. I know how much money i wanna make with. Let's say my first digital course launch or even my second digital launch but they don't understand or know yet how much they should budget for ads. They're like well. How much is it going to cost me to get lead for my webinar. Like let's focus on that. That's the biggest reason why my students would be running ads. I know you can't get into every single number in detail. But what would you say to somebody. That's struggling with that. Yeah so let's walk through how we would how we would break this down. So i you decide that sales goal. So let's say you wanna make make it easy ten thousand dollars. You've got a thousand dollar course. You need to sell ten. So you have that number of those sales goals. Okay now you have to decide your after come up. With how many leads you need into your web. In our in order to get those ten sales so for simplicity sake the average conversion is like one to five percent of all of your leads in. It's going to depend on your audience and the price of your offer. Let's just say three percent of people that sign up for your webinar. The total registrants are going to buy that course so you need ten sales and three percent are going to buy than what would be that total number of leads and i can't do math really fast but i mean what are you whatever that equals i think it would be like one percent is three hundred leads so we will need hundred leads. I think that's right so there once you have your leads. Then what's your cost per lead and an average cost lead for a webinar is anywhere from like four to ten dollars and again it depends on your industry when you're targeting consumers you usually have a cheaper cost per lead where if you're targeting business owners usually pay a little bit more because it's just a more saturated ad space so let's say five dollars you multi that let's say we need a hundred leads. Okay your ad spends five hundred dollars and that's how you break it down and get there. Okay i'm glad that you walk through this in the way that you did. I think my listeners really wanted some concrete data and like a formula to us. So i think that was really helpful so i appreciate you taking the time to really drill. That went down. Yeah perfect all right so move us on to mistake number two okay. The second mistake that many people make is they. Don't do enough testing especially of your ad creative so your copy your images maybe test video and in my opinion when i see someone saying that their ads aren't working eighty five ninety percent of the time. It's the messaging because it takes a lot of work to really understand who your ideal customer is and how to speak to them and how to stand out in the feed especially this year. It's just gotten even more important to go deeper to take it to the next level with talking to your ideal customers fears and their dreams and where they're struggling right now and so a lot people mostly because ads can be a lot of work. But i encourage you to take the extra week if you need you know as you get ready for adds to have at least three versions of your ad that you're testing. Maybe it's a long form of copy in a short form of copy and then you have a video an image. Because i'll get this question all the time. People's will what works better video or image or what works better long or short and it i there is no concrete answer because it's truly different for every audience. A lotta times. I do see video work better than in some cases i see a static image with no tax work better for somebody so the more testing you can do and the more deep you can go with your messaging to stand out the better. Your results will be and like i said truly eighty five ninety percent of time when your ads are hitting that cost per lead goal or they're too expensive or they're not converting it's because of your messaging because as you know amy like so many years it takes so much time to really truly know your customer but the person who knows them the most and can talk to them. The best in the feed will always

What a success story Help yourself to success and losing weight with the support you get from Calitri in at top, Lost our com back to Dr Ken Crone house was here from Lake Cardiology, which is his clinic down in Medora, Florida. Lots of people are taking advantage. I talked to Ken the other night at 9 30. He was still in his office talking to patients. That's what his dedication is all about. He's there and you can take advantage of you. Like two of his expertise. Medical experts he's not only is he a world famous cardiologists, but he really is very practical. And by the way, I want to spend Ah, moment. Don't let me forget to talk about the the the acknowledgement that's come from a lot of the research that you've done. On coronary arteries that many stuff that you and I were talking about the other day when people hear that story, but meanwhile, back at covert 19 There are a lot of news media folks who are trying to scare everybody is usual can into being worried about what's gonna happen. I'm gonna have an allergic reaction. There aren't many of you. I mean, Let's get real with the numbers here. Can you explain? Well, there have been some allergic reactions. But what we're learning is the incidents is about one in 100,000 people vaccinated have a serious allergic reaction, an awful axis and most the majority of these people have had a history in the past. Of having an awful axis and one and 100,000 people vaccinated is more than the flu vaccine rate. But it's not Maura than most vaccines, so that is an acceptable rate. It's not a surprising rate and a rate that small is what one is expected for. So if you do get vaccinated, and I hope you everybody does. Unless you have had a history in the past of an awful axis. Everybody wait at least 15 minutes afterwards. Here you're watched. And if you have any history of significant allergy reaction in the past, he watched for a half hour after you vaccinated. All right, And that was your experience. When you had your shot, you stayed in the chair of 15 20 minutes. I was watched. So my first vaccine for 15 minutes and in two days I'll be getting my second vaccine. There you go. That's how it works. Pretty simple, Straightforward stuff is the US blind to contagious new viruses. We'll find out what the science is behind that. Ask Dr Ken's more questions about covert.
Is It Harder To Stay On Top Of Your Finances If You Are LGBTQ+?
"The question was is it harder to stay on top of your finances. If you're lgbtq. Plus the results of the poll was fifty two percent of you said it is not hard to stay on top of your finances if you're lgbt. Plus forty eight percent of you think that it is. It is harder to stay on top of your finances if you attribute to keep us. Let's open up the discussion with your stories. Hi chris during the discussion about monogamy. The term hetero normative came up a few times. Yes it did because we are very high brow without being up to give it a name until recently i also say had to learn how incredibly to normative or issues around money can be when trying to set up savings for the future and even worse during the process a buying a flat of the services and the people encountered almost exclusively focused on henry married couples a few examples when setting up a pension fund. I kept getting asked about joint funds with my husband or adding any future children to the plan. The idea that a woman in her back then thirties would not have a husband. No children and had no plans of having either in the future didn't even enter their minds. That's fascinating because i think what it reminds me of is the conversations we've had about. Lgbtq plus people going to the doctor. You don't feel like the person sitting opposite you understand your situation so you avoid talking to these people and these things like financial services pensions all. These things are real things that we all need to deal with and if we avoid them which everybody avoids pension. I still have one. I did have one for about two weeks. When i was twenty three and then i canceled. It is you. Don't you know there's another hurdle in the way to dealing with stuff because you didn't feel like you're going to be understood and you feel confident. Exhibition explanation carries on when hunting for flat. To by several of the real estate agents will literally looking searching behind me for a husband or male partner to show up because the idea of a women doing such a thing on her rain seen to bogle their minds. This is around two thousand and five not nineteen fifty five one a woman no less even said well you can tell your husband about later and see if he agrees never even bothering to ask if there is a husband fascinating now. Listen i move a lot. And i noticed that when i look at places by myself and i took what my husband. Everyone's always very nice always just kind of like little moment. You have to look note for there. We go and then they never asked about kids off to that point which i think is funny because lgbtq. Plus people can of kids that she continues. When i had finally found a place i took a friend who is a lawyer along with me to sit in the contract negotiation to make sure it was all in order. Good diligence to we made it clear right from the start what his role was but nevertheless conversation was addressed to him from that moment on. I'm not even gonna stall on the difficulty of getting the required loan mortgage in my hudson experienced. Financial services of any kind are among the least informed and inclusive industries when it comes to dealing with customers from the community this needs to change because it is negatively impacting not just the current light of many people but also making it harder for them to secure their futures. All the best hitter couldn't agree more. And i think it's because if you think about all the institutions that we deal with when it comes to things like money these huge international banks they are built for being massive to cater to the mass market. And therefore they don't really advocate it to the corners or the the people who are different in some little specific way and they absolutely should interesting now. Carlos has been in touch with the voice note. Let's have a listen. The one is it hard to stay on top of financial As ubt cupolas. I would say yes. It's really hard times. I'd say most of eligibility people leave their parents home early. And you have to start working. Pay abuse and sharon houses. 'cause you won't be able to afford the entire house i would say that it's even harder if you're a black and white cupolas because you don't have the same as a return as a white elizabeth plus but You'll get there. I hope lovely message. Thank you carlos and two very interesting point one. Is you know it's true if you want lucky enough to be born somewhere that on your doorstep other. Lgbtq plus people or community way can go and find your people. You are more likely to leave. And that means you're taking on the responsibilities of being an adult like rent and paying bills and all of that like a lot earlier. The lot people stay at home because they can. And it's so expensive to move out and that can really sway how you lead your life and then you know the the first the complication of being a black. Lgbtq plus person the colossus talking about is so true because we need the conversation that is so raging on at the moment and well over two. Is you know y. Lgbtq plus people have such a headstart and it's all about making sure we acknowledged and everybody help each other out. So thank you for that. Wonderful stuff
How to Be Patient in an Impatient World by Mark Manson
"How to be patient in an impatient world part one by mark manson of mark manson don net every introductory psychology class talks about this thing called the skinner box. Sounds like something out of assam uvi. But it's actually a famous psychological methods from the golden days of research back when pregnant women still drank and torturing rats were signs was cool. A skinner box works like this. A rat or some other unsuspecting small animal is placed in this box which has a lever and a little feeding bowl. The rats sniffs around the box and not knowing what was going on on so many levels. It will eventually pushed the lever by chance. A sugary little treat is then delivered into the bowl. If you learn anything from pixar movies is that rats really love to feet. The skinner boxes no different the rats quickly figure out that pushing the lever equals getting delicious snack so they keep doing it over and over and over but then at some point of giving the rat to treat and this is off the rat. You'll hit the lever over and over and over frantically trying to get the treat it feels it desperately deserves until finally after exhausting itself it will give up and resigned itself to fate that life is the treats are everything is ally the right will then smoke cigarettes and right-back french philosophy about his terrible disappointment with its own existence. The skinner box demonstrated something fundamental and animal. Behavior is something feels good. We'll do it again and again and again and eventually grow a sense of entitlement to that pleasurable thing. We deserve to feel that pleasure. We deserve to be rewarded and when the reward is taken from us we throw a total hissy fit today. Life is full of skinner boxes. Your phone is a skinner box. Your television is a skinner box. Your wife's is a okay. I better stop there. The point is every day in the modern world. We to get little packets of pleasure delivered to us with a push of abundant and the more packets of pleasure. The more impatient we get when we don't get our desired reward. Next thing you know. Were complaining about. Dr irs taking a wrong turn and too many unwanted emails on monday morning. And what the. The pizza guy was supposed to be here. A minutes ago triggered. I think the last time was managed to shut up and be patient. I was young enough. That i pulled my pants all the way down and lifted my shirt to p parents are always wagging their finger at their children to practice patients to wait a little longer to delay gratification and focus on long-term consequences instead of short term rewards yet as adults. We celebrate impatience so busy. I don't have time for this. Everyone's doing things at the same time doing all things poorly why because he can't wait nothing can wait. We need results now. Patience is a virtue anniversary of the world is sorely lacking at the moment. Be more patient. In our daily lives can do wonders for our mental health. Our economic prosperity and can perhaps make the world seem like slightly less of a hemorrhoids riddled full versus waiting patiently. A lot people mystic patience for the ability to wait for something but this isn't quite true. Patience isn't simply being able to wait for a reward is our attitude towards waiting. For example i might be able to wait for the pizza or an hour and a half ago but i can do so in one of two ways number one patiently calmly working on this draft reading a book and just enjoying my time alone before my large jalapeno pepperoni pie with extra garlic sauce. Arise or number two impatiently piecing around my apartment calling the restaurants again and chewing on my t shirt to soothe my hunger pangs. Obviously one of these options is better than the other better for me. Better for the delivery guy better for my t shirt but the evidence suggests that were becoming worse at this. Were becoming more impatient you see. Modern society has become. Its own slightly more complicated skinner box. Instead of levers we push buttons some real many virtual others imagined and instead of those buttons delivering sugary pellets. With which to stuff are gullit's deliver endless streaming entertainment options digital proxies for social interaction. Same day shipping on yet. Another new bedroom sets oh and sugary over stimulating tasty food for repair just gullit's and has all literally at our fingertips twenty four seven in the name of convenience. The market continues to promise a world where we no longer have to. We patiently that whatever we want we should have it as quickly as possible. These services and devices than act on us as our own little virtual skinner box making us less patient and more irritable. When things don't quite go our way hashtag first world problems.
Pirates of the Carolinas
"Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina. Terrence Zip key is brought to life thirteen notorious pirates in her book pirates of the Carolinas. She relates stories of ships weighted down with gold crews too drunk on rum to fight treacherous colonial officials, mutineers, privateers, and the sad end of the line for the pirates who got caught. White Barents thanks for joining us. Hi, thanks for having me. Give us some background on this. What was the golden age of piracy in the United States? Well, we really don't know how long piracy's been around It's been around at least twenty, five, hundred years they are, and there was an era during its hey day that was known as the golden age piracy, and that was the light seventeenth century to early eighteenth centuries and The United States it'd be colonial America. It was colonial. America. When they came over here and Interesting Carolina had a lot of the officials had partnerships with the pirates. We were sort of commerce poor place back then. So we actually welcomed pirates like blackbeard until they had the big crack down on piracy and that was the end of that. So is it kind of the fine line between a privateer and pirate? What's the difference? It was such a fine line rick and basically a little piece of paper because a lot of the pirates started out they were privateers. And they were involved in Queen Anne's war wars all over Europe and everything, and they were commissioned to attack enemy ships in order to get money to get booty to help fund the war and they split the money with the crown. So yes. So the the king or the governor would say you are licensed to attack ships as long as they're not our ships and you p half the booty, but you gotta give the rest to us. So we can fight war whatever right and so then imagine when the war is over and your navy is no longer needed. All these men I've ever known. There's no employment. You know it was a fine line anyway between privateer and pirate. So a lot of them just became officially pirates and they got to keep everything. Nice business model. So, now, what was the basic action? It was mostly ships going from Europe to the Americas or where did they get their best opportunities at that time? That was all these merchant ships that were doing these trade routes and so you could just sort of sit out there. It was just like fishing and just block them off. They weren't very well armed or anything they were slow because they were big heavy. Ships with a lot of merchandise onboard now also, and it really didn't matter. This is one of those falsehoods that people realize people thought pirates just want gold and pieces of eight. But the truth is that they wanted what they could sell when they got these merchant ships and they had all these realms of fine linens and silks and tobacco and rum, and all this was this was pay dirt so they would. Get this stuff, and then they would go to the next port and just like you see when you travel a lot people stealing stuff off of ships and setting up a little stand and selling a cheap absolutely, and that's what they did like a lot more in partnership with the authorities here and so when they came into port and all that they would look the other way and then they would get A. Cut for looking the other way and the merchants would get discounted goods. The pilots would get money I mean everybody was happy sounds like a win win win lose situation I'm rick this is travel with Rick Steves speaking with Zip in her books called pirates of the Carolinas. We always think pirates of the Caribbean and your book is pirates of the Carolinas. Why was there so much pirate action and the Carolina? coast. Well at that time, these were pretty poor state. So we needed to get commerce wherever we could. So pirates were good for business. So we saw there were a safe haven for pirate in fact, blackbeard who was one of the probably the biggest chapter discussed in this book, he actually set up shop actually made a home and actually came part of the community and all up and north.

Pirates Of The Carolinas
"When I asked a couple of my friends from Ireland to join us on the show to talk about their country's legends of fairies and benches and things that go bump in the night. They were a little reluctant at first I thought it was because they didn't want to appear superstitious or maybe out of date. And that's what they wanted me to believe. But I wonder if they weren't just a little afraid. Coming up today on travel with Rick Steves we hear how the Irish comedy tells they grew up with very folk lurking in their surroundings in their testing their luck right now by making an exception to talk openly about it with us. We'll also explore San Francisco's legends of Ghost sightings from Al Capone on Alcatraz to a grieving mother who still wonders Golden Gate Park? Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina.

Who Do You Want To Serve When You Grow Up?
"All right. So this is my thoughts hoping remind me Sharon from you but. We talked about. Inside of our community to talk about the fact that I believe. Each and every one of us is called to serve a group of people right? It's like I for me. I was called to serve entrepreneurs, right? So I figured I, who am I? To serve their entrepreneurs and then it's like. Well, there's a lot of entrepreneurs who remind my entrepreneurs, right my entrepreneurs funnel hackers, and they give them a name and a title. Belief in an all kind of stuff right? It was interesting because as I knew like, Oh, here's who heard. These are my people this is this is what I'm supposed to serve. Then everything else can really easy like then it was like, well, what are these people need? They need this this and the idea is the products, the Services Events, the coaching calls the podcast, all the things bike game easy when I first identified they who am I called the serve, and then giving those people in needs specific people saying I sort of entrepreneurs it's tough because. There's lot people from nurse. Now make fighting competing everybody else was not answer all entrepreneurs I, serve my entrepreneurship funnel hackers, right? and. So it's interesting though because I was talking today Some people and? There's a phrase that we hear all the time like when we're when we're kids, it's like, what do you want to be when you grow up people are going to be a dentist want to be a doctor I? WanNa be a football player I want to be we talk about who we want to be right but you think about like how we actually make money how actually start businesses it's not about who we wanna be is who we want to serve. Right. It's like this little thing it's sort of like with our kids ask them you want to be you want to be when you grow up or asking of the kids who graduate high school what do you WanNa be someday when you have to call it. What do you want to be i? Think the asked the question what would wanna be census on the wrong path I wanna be dentist dentist. Well, you gotta go to. School here, and then you go to school here and then all then you become a dentist and then you get your dental degree now able to clean people's teeth, right? Now you clean teeth. The questions like well, who do you serve and you're a Dentist they just like everybody probably right and it just put you on this long long long long long path that before you ever get to the real question, which is who you call the serve. Increase switching around like who do you want to survey? Who Your? Who's your tribe whose your whatever you WANNA call it right. So looking at that standpoint it changes everything right? It changes how you start looking at this business and starts changing all the different things. Question for you is you're starting this journey wherever you are is not. So it's like, would you wanna be when you grow up in and I've asked myself that a lot but it's like who do you WanNa serve grub right? Who is a group of people that you're the most passionate about who is the? Morning and be like, okay this is the group I get to serve it would it would change everything for you right and then if you have that, you have that person you figure out like what's your name for that group who your people then I all the ideas start flowing easier right I think when I first got started in this business. And I talked about this a little bit in the dotcom secrets book those who have read it. If you haven't read the new updated version by the way, please we'll get a promise getting updated one. But I talked about how? I started my business like what I was focusing on. I was like, what do I want to create rise they all WANNA create this product and this product again. The questions a lot people chase down, but it puts you in really weird path. I want to create a product that does this because I had to say I want to create a product that is this. So. From products I thought that was the path I start creating selling them and you luckily I was able to figure out the process started making money but it was they by default what I created. It attracted a certain audience right and because they didn't athlete who don't want to serve, I wouldn't want to create a crazy thing and then by default created attracted a certain type of people to me. Right it's like Bait it's like I'm on a Fisher but. One time I remember there's like different Bait right if I want to catch. The fish so embarrassing on a catch, a big fish oughta gets a trout or. Salmon or whatever there's different Bait right and the throughout throughout track's from fish to you K I've noticed that is actually true maybe estimated up but I think is if not, you guys get the same thing, the Bait you put out into the world attracts from people because I led with like what's the Bait? I WANNA create right with the idea have what's the Bait I started doing this or thrown This debate out not knowing what is going to track, and also it's like, oh my gosh, attracted trout and Mike Oh I actually hate trout right or hate salmon or whatever your your version of that in dotcom secrets book I talk about that how I woke up one day and I was laying in bed and I was like, I, wish I had a Boston he could fire because this is miserable and Not Enjoying this experience at all it was it was such a bad thing, right? And so.

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality
"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will
Mortgage Market Booms, Even as Virus Hits Economy
"The mortgage market recorded its best quarter in years this spring. A reflection of how the housing market is booming in 2020, even as much of the economy stumbles. You know what? That they give one example of a homeowner that dropped their payment from $2000 a month of $1500 a month. How do you know what that that means? Long term? Put aside the market doing so great market might be in a correction right now. I don't know It doesn't really matter because it's gone up so high. It can correct for a while and then go back up again on. I'd rather correct now instead of in front of the election. But the These people were going to save 203 104 105 100 more dollars a month. That just powers the economy in Q three. I also happen to believe that hiring there's going to be one more unemployment report just one And people are out there trying to hire right now because they realized if they don't hire right now, they're not going to get the best workers, so I expect a great employment number in October. So all of a sudden, the stock market, which has been ignored by the press, will be the number one story from the press. If it goes down a little bit in the tech sector that will become the big selloff. They'll try and get a panic going. I really do believe the press is involved in trying to take out Trump so they'll emphasized the negative and And obscure the positive, but this refinancing boom You just call and you're in. Todd. If you can't get anyone to take your phone call 200% increases a lot. People are
The Story Behind Every Song on Taylor Swift’s folklore
"Right. Another Hollywood news. You know, Taylor Swift surprised us all when she released her album, folklore, and we didn't make it or break it for you. Not so long ago with her brand new single cardigan. And a lot of fans talking about. There's couple rumors around folklore, the album from Taylor Swift fans saying they think that Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, Joe Done Zo reel of the lyrics, and they think that even though Joe Alwyn believe that I say it always was credited with writing under Ah, a pen name, they think that he wrote some of the lyrics, but I guess some of the lyrics are also saying that they have broken up and fans are really upset about it. Same old, same overtime now. Also something else. And this is where you really have to be a major Taylor Swift fan to even know this. But Taylor Swift might have given away the name of Ryan Reynolds and Blake, Lively's third daughter. They welcome their three okay, but the name of their third daughter has not been publicized. In one of Taylor Swift songs. She goes on to talk about it. There are three names Betty I Nez and James. Well, Inez and James are the confirmed names of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds daughters. And so now fans are speculating that Betty is the name of the third. Wow, Interesting, Taylor Swift and they are all friends, and they all hang out. And then as She just cement the room or even further. Blake Lively, offered a lot of praise, talking about like you. Folklore is full of heart and soul, humor, passion, intelligence, what she goes on and on and on with every positive and you could say about the album. And so fans quickly noted that the lyrics to the song featured the three names Betty, Inez and James the ladder to being the names of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's Daughters. It's interesting. My wife, Kelly is a huge Taylor Swift fan. When I first met her like, she said, When she goes to bed, she would have a Taylor Swift playlist and she'd go to sleep and were first married. You know, to go to sleep. She'd just hit it and They're so if we go to sleep, listening, Taylor Swift every night she got the new album. She was mad at me. First of all that, you know, we didn't make it or break it for one of the cardigan issue, And I was she was like, Did you notice we have new album like Yeah. Came out two days ago. And she was. Why don't you tell me? I forgot This was so upset. I think she would know that some sort of fan club mailing. Yeah, but she's been working like nonstop. I'm pregnant. All stuff. Everything's been going like seven. She's seriously like under Iraq. She knows nothing going on, even says that And she start listen to us. Listen to the whole thing. It's right. Don't like it. It's a very sound one of the lifeguards over the weekend, said a What's up with your girl? Taylor Swift. You guys think of friends, Sailors just like you know, I just know that you played Taylor's with but she said, Yeah, it's just sad girl music. ISS felt like that. I like sad girl like Adele like where she's you know. Tom Amaro, Where's powerhouses like Wow, It's kind of like Oppressing, which is the type of music with the artist that she worked with her. She collaborated with on this album. People like bony there, I think there's a couple other and that's Their style. That's so you could hear it when you see who she's worked with, you kind of think. Oh, this's what I'm getting. Okay. It's different from any album she's ever done, though, and I didn't listen to all that. We played the card. We played Carnegie Hall Cardigan didn't like it. I mean, this is too slow for me, but I'm biased. I typically don't like most super slow, low energy songs. I know lots people that do, But so I am elicit the rest of it. But Me and Kelly Taylor. Swift could scream and be in agony and in killing that's great. Well, she won't because she's the top singer. You could make the most horrific sound my wife like. That's great now did not like it at all. Listen to the rest of it, and I did not like cardigan. We'll see though We'll
How to Live Single: Sexpectations
"I can't remember the exact place where I learned about the sexuality, but I was fourteen around that age and I remember reading the right definition, which is that in actual person is a person who doesn't experience sexual attraction and I was like Oh. That's interesting. There's people out there who don't experience sexual attraction next. ASEXUALITY didn't ring any bells for tween. Angela until the early twentieth sheep just assume she was straight. And it wouldn't be until ten years later that I was really thinking about what those words mean like. What is sexual attraction? What does it mean to lack sexual attraction? Because even though the words were right, the meanings were so nuanced that it wasn't something that I think it was equipped to understand at that point, so for instance while heterosexuality means you're sexually attracted to people of the opposite gender and sexuality means you're sexually attracted to folks of all gender identities as Angela describes an ace. ASEXUALITY means you are sexually attracted to no one as. As a teenager Angela was curious about sex because of how fantastic she assumed it must feel, but she didn't get any erotic charge from touching or being touched, it was emotional intimacy and romantic desire that Angela longed for so at twenty four years old after breaking up with her first serious boyfriend, who had a far more casual outlook on sex Angela began worrying that something might be wrong with her so one day over lunch at a Burmese restaurant. She decided to get out of her own head and ask her close friend Jane about it. And, so you know we sit down. We're eating our food and then I say to Japan. You know I have a question for you and my question is. What does sexual attraction feel like and I? Think that Jane was confused at that point, it wasn't like I had a history of sexual anxiety or anything like that. In fact I thought I was lucky to as far as I. Know Not have that much cultural baggage attached to sex, which is something that I think many women do have Jane on the other hand. She was still a virgin, never had a boyfriend, but she was very interested in it, and it was interesting to me because in all those conversations we had about. Libido and lust. She clearly had more experience with that even if you'd never actually had facts whereas I had. So. What do you mean when you say that? Jane had more experience with Libido and lust like Jane would often talk about being attracted to someone, or we talk about masturbation, or she would talk about basically being Oranje like she would talk about those experiences very openly with me, and those were just not experiences that I'd had, but it was clear that for. For her like there was a drive, there was some kind of physical component for her. It wasn't just like Oh. I have a crush on the sky and like. Wouldn't it be nice like sex was like kind of part of her environment part of the way that she saw the world in a widow clearly wasn't true for me, and how did it feel? To, you, remember to even hear yourself asking that question out loud. I think felt naive. Jane is lovely and would never judge me and you know I felt very safe saying that, but I think I felt like infantilized and I think I felt I just I just. Kinda felt stupid. It's almost like if someone's like. What is it like to taste food like what? Why don't you know you're a grown woman? At the time Angela was in her second serious relationship, both had started as non-physical friendships that gradually evolved into dating and eventually having sex, but even so inch didn't experience the physical impulse to have sex with either partner. You know she wasn't horny like Jane was. To me. I only wanted to have sex with someone when I was already ready to change my life for them, it was really over whelming released suffocating feeling and I think for many other people. That's not the case you know. Other people feel sexual attraction a lot people and they deal with it, and it's not this big deal. It's not this intense suffocating love, but I didn't know that so. Tell us more about what attraction feels like for you. So I think attraction for me. I definitely experience aesthetic attraction I. Been That's part of the reason why I didn't realize I was sexual for a long time is because I clearly had physical type and I could say oh. That person is cute. Oh, that person's not cute it. Mike I'm definitely more romantically attracted to people that I find aesthetically attractive. I don't experience sexual attraction, but that doesn't mean that I'm necessarily repulsed by SAX that I hate sex. It's more like it's I really only want to have sex or For emotional reasons or to feel close. There's almost never any kind of physical. Physical drive for me in my normal life. I never think about sex I talk to my friends, and they say oh. I haven't truth thoughts about sex all the time, or when I'm around attractive people, you know I get jittery or I noticed them more, and that just is not part of my experience whatsoever.
Financial independence, retire early (FIRE)whats up with that?
"I Chris. This is barry from Milwaukee and I recently found your show and have been enjoying the content. Can you talk briefly about fire? Financially independent retire early. How does side-hustle school fit into that concept? I've been reading a lot about the fire. Movement and I love the idea of being able to retire in my late thirties or early forties, and I've started saving at least thirty percent of my income with the goal of making that happen. What do you think about the fire concept? And how does side-hustle school fit into it or does it? Thanks Chris and I look forward to hearing from you. Hey Barry, thanks so much for listening from Milwaukee I hope I can get to Milwaukee at some point. I was supposed to go there on my forty city tour, so look forward to regrouping on that anyway. Thank you so much for listening and yes Let's talk about fire. It's interesting because I was reading about this model this concept at least fifteen years. Years ago I I discovered it from the source that a lot of people do which is a book called your money or your life? By Vicki Robin thing it went out of print for a while, or at least some of the content was outdated, but it has had a resurgence. There's a new updated edition to reflect some changes, investment, strategy, and so on. So anyway I knew I think it's great I have a couple of concerns and when I say these concerns, they're not meant to be criticisms. It's more just like some observations, a little tweak or adjustment that I might suggest to some people who are really into this so this movement. Is Very Analytical. In the sense of there's a lot of spreadsheets or these calculators. Great focus on finding your number whatever your number is the point of the point where you feel like you can safely quit your job. ETC, so there's a lot of focused on the minutiae of savings and comparatively little on. What's the point like? Why are you doing this? What will you do if you're retired? Actually and I think it's designed for people who really don't like their work in. That's a lot people to be fair, but I tend to connect more people who do like their work and don't want to retire necessarily. So leaving aside that whole point. Tip Number one is just to be intentional about like. If you're going to go down this road, why do you want to do it? If you have a goal in mind and this whole path lines up with that then excellent okay, and the second thing is second concern, which leads to my suggested adjustment or tweak is that there tends to be at least in my observation. More focus on saving then running and I really believe that like the best thing you can do is to make more money. If, you have an average income, you can scrimp and save. You can live extremely for. which is the way that some people in this movement do and technically achieve your goal, but it will be far far easier if you can actually increase your income, which is what I try to help people with, and then maybe not stress out as much about buying whatever kind of coffee you want to drink. I think it's actually a lot easier to find a way to pay for that five dollar coffee. Than it is to just not by the five dollar coffee. So that's what I try to teach here on this program. At least with all the effort that some people put toward the saving side like I said. Some people are fanatical about it. I wonder how effective they might be if they focus more on earning, so it's just my suggestion. No offense to any fire fans everybody in that community. I'm with you on the concept I just think it's more important to earn than to continually cut costs, so tip number. One is earned more than you save and remember always do what's best for you.
Coming Out Stories: Tim Sigsworth MBE
"I came out to myself when I was probably fourteen years old. So that's a for a few years ago. It's a fifty one now. Was there a particular person or incident that made you question sexuality? Well I have every thing to thank my last girlfriend for owns worth and Co was a friend on on my stay on. We were dating and she knew I was gay and I didn't anyway. I I try to take my own life when I was a teenager because I was so petrified about what would happen if I came out as gay in the era of the crisis I thought I would die and that that my parents were desert me and know that panic. We could find me realize what was going on and she. She told me I was gay. Before I even thought about what was going on to me. I go to thank you for. Wow and so. She realized because you weren't acting her other boyfriends active presumably. I don't know I mean she just picked up all the signs the signs but really and I was trying to ignore it for so long. You know the turmoil will always starts before you actually go on to accept yourself and expect to you all so let some sort of place this time and a place so we are in northern England's in the early nine hundred ninety s away yes. I grew up on what was called to keep a council estate in Berry. Which was you know? I felt completely isolated in and I just locked myself in my room reading as a kid and didn't really have that many friends. My parents are quite elderly when they had me. So I'm in this world y. For a lot of isolation any shred of exploring who I was was just you know hidden away deep in the depths and that's why walls and nobody taught to and Manchester eight or nine miles away might as well as being a thousand miles away so you really felt that they didn't know any other gay people of the term absolutely a now. It's always ironic when you suddenly you go back to your hometown. And you see people scurrying around and think I went to school with you and your gay and I no idea and it's just is it just tinged with a little bit of sadness you think I could have had a group of mates at school who lgbt. I know idea but because they were going for the same thing that you're going through presumably just internalizing it and vocalizing it absolutely in. What's interesting for me? Actually one of the leads. That bullied me at school turned out to be gay. I mean I got a rendering bullied at school. Not necessarily because people thought I might be gay but I just got bullied. Generally and he was horrible to me and I just wondered if he knew because he certainly was hiding zone sexuality at the Time God. So what sort of things we getting billed for. It wasn't anything to do with sexuality then basically being swapped most of it but also because of where I grew up compared with the people I went school wage I went to bury grammar and for a lot of the Council of State that I grew upon the just unknown unheard of so there was a lot of lot. People thought. I shouldn't be at that school. People who were peed off by our well I was doing at school. And you know just mini picked on me for that. Plus all the usual stuff they picked up on little things in. How behaving you know my flamboyance and stuff like that. And they turned it into reasons to hate me since things. A lot of people have spoken to have gone through that homophobic bullying. But it sounds like it was bit more broad fear but still does massive Damage for for quite a long time. Did you find the yes? I mean I search low self worth and self esteem and without going on to what was happening at home the moment at it it was just. I didn't feel I at any words. Go for support and Kerr. And that's why when I finally made intimate Sta and to the Youth Group. It was a completely different. So I suppose kind of exploded my sexuality in a my Mid-teens okay so talk us through the journey from being fourteen to then finally going to this bt youth group at the first thing you did or did you. Did you tell anyone you will befall them? I'm Gina why didn't the the the irony is that the the age from fourteen to seventeen and a half? I think before I went to the Group. I just hit away. I'd sneak to a bookshop and get a copy of gay news or whatever it was called. Then you know things are looking the listings and gay times and do things like that and fantasize about who could be obviously channel. Four was taking off with some of the LGBT CONTENTS. Why was hidden in my bedroom watching the lgbt stuff that they were putting out so. I had literally completely private world until I got about seventeen and a half so obviously boyfriends it was just you accessing the world from your bedroom but not actually ever vocalizing it. No absolutely not obviously sizing my boyfriend what that might be like and thinking about but also. This was all happening while the iceberg was on tv all the whole world of remember the adverts for around HIV and AIDS. And he messages. Like this. And I was just. I just become petrified about right so basically been gaming Lucia family and your risk of HIV infection. That's that's the image I heard and this is legitimate risk of those of the. Yeah I mean I attempted to take my own life. Because I couldn't see a future I can see a way forward annoyed go. What do I do well? How old were you there? I think I might be fifteen a new annoy and take my all levels at that point so it was before took my all levels and the fact that my parents. I mean my parents are dead now but I don't think my parents ever knew about thought. So someone rescued. Yep I mean yeah. Well accent was wonderful and helped me see you. I walls and that was wonderful so I I suppose I come out to somebody other than lgbt people and it was over. And I always wonder who is now but certainly from South Africa. We just map. You know she lived to no. That'd be really interesting because she was phenomenal and she got me through all all

Is Disney Plus one of the biggest launches of all time?
"Launched in November. We've seen a lot of hands of the service was popular last night. Though Disney laid out just how popular in less than three months Disney plus was hit. Twenty eight point six million members. Now I know nothing about streaming so just Joan had just. How big is that really. That's really big like bigger than Netflix. Not Not bigger than Netflix but Netflix has been streaming for a decade. Netflix says at one hundred sixty seven million subscribers so twenty eight point six you got a long way to go still but Disney plus just launch like less than ninety days ago. Okay so in three at that as well. How many how. Many months away already from Disney killing Netflix. That's a really good question. Everyone wants to know that and we don't really know exactly except that we know that Disney is already like so they said it will take them five years to get to like sixty to ninety the only and they're already almost halfway to the lower end of that threshold so they're growing much faster than they thought. They were better than any expectations. The other thing. That's interesting is even though Disney. He plus launched in November got like these millions of subscribers mostly in the US net flicks is still growing in the in the US. The managed in in the midst of all this competition. They didn't grow a lot. People were not real happy with how much they did grow. But you're still adding members even as Disney's vacuuming up all these other people for streaming services. So what's really really hurting is cable. Oh no poor cable giants. I really got to feel it. You know I feel really bad for them. Missile where where's Apple. TV Fin on all this so they launched around the same apple. TV launched on November first and Disney plus launched less than two weeks later. And we don't know like it's apple they don't say how big they are the things that we can kind of cobbled together. We can't even coupled governor any sort of numbers. We can generally generally estimate that they have a lot of subscribers in the sense that they basically gave away apple. TV plus to anybody. That's device since September. Anyone who has a new iphone. Anyone that got you know something under the Christmas tree or for a holiday or a president. Whatever during that holiday shopping season They also were able to just like flip. A switch basically internal probably means they have a lot but that's no not paying them so so what's next like when are we gonNA see Disney. Plus you know maybe have a eleven joining the avengers or something. I don't know if that's going to happen. That would be really interesting crossover but I mean we do know that Disney. Plus it's going to be launching into Europe watching the Europe Europe and India. They're gonNA lodging. Your Evan Indian March. They're going to be expanding. Hulu to international markets markets. Right now who is only in the US. They're going to expand that next year they as in Disney Disney Disney owns who also Ho boy. And then in terms of originals. We know that there's going to be the first marvel original original series that ties into the marvel cinematic universe. That's first one's coming in August. The next season the mandatory ends in October. And then they're gonNA have their second marvel original in December so there's a lot coming up this year all right well next up spotify. It's still in the lead of streaming music services This morning spotify. It has hit one hundred twenty four million subscribers and that twenty twenty two hundred seventy one million people that are listening to spotify total Joan. How's that stack up with competitors like title and Pandora It's funny title isn't really talked about much because no one. It's not really music so Amazon. Music says they have fifty five million people listening that's not necessarily subscribers. Because he Amazon music included they said there are fifty million listeners apple in June so that Apple Apple Music has sixty million and so obviously you know spotify double that number of subscribers not to mention the fact that like it has more than two hundred million people listening every month. It's just it's a lot. It's the biggest subscription music service and the reason that they think that they can become even bigger focusing on podcast today. They said they were going to buy bill. Simmons Ringer like network which is a website for news. But mostly our podcast network at this point. Because you know every single title title's it's actually an interesting example but Pandora Apple Music Amazon music. They all basically have the same catalog staff. Titles the one that has like these exclusives from it's owners but obviously that's not really really working really well for them so spotify thinks that in order to distinguish themselves they need to go after not necessarily music but podcast. Because that's not the Gimblett recently. They've given it last year. They bought anchor last year. They budgeted up to five hundred million dollars to spend on podcast. Acquisitions why does spotify care. So much about podcasts. Listen how much would they like to buy the daily charge they do. You have like five hundred million dollars budget you start the bidding there. They lay podcast because they think that. That's a way to distinguish themselves from everybody else. And you know. It's also going right after apple. PODCASTS are called podcasts because of the I pod like dominated rock for a long time. So it'll be interesting to see as everyone moves over to streaming instead of downloads if spike can eat apples lunch. Well Yeah I've seen that for Apple Apple Music. The the bigger draw for their PODCASTS. Live radio station stuff right because that's what I've been hearing about it because there's news that happens on those Nicki Menaj goes on some rant. Like Travis Scott's baby like on her life podcast hey like Dr. DRE will say something new right there. I mean is that Kinda what spotify is trying to go after radio one. You're talking about radio. One which beats radio and I think I whatever. I can't even remember what it's called but That's it's not part of their subscription. That's like that's something that anyone can listen to inc for free and so it is a way to like drop interest but the main reason apple music it's people to subscribe is because they're in a responses offenses because they're on iphones and it's the default saying
Pay Your Dues Now: Living for Another Life
"I have been talking about this. We've been talking about it a lot don today right over the past several months and we've been kind of working through it and processing what it means when we say it how we receive it it from other so we want to have this discussion today because we think that the advice that we're going to share with you and talk about some that a lot of us have received as Moms uh-huh who have children who are still young and we think that a lot of us probably need to pause Lauren. I included and really process through what's being said and how our hearts to responding. Yes so the phrase or maybe it said in in various different ways but the phrase that we wanna cut dissect talk about today goes something like this typically from an older woman or the influence or popular teacher or even emily and I or your friend who remain lots people say this they say something along the lines of. Hey if you're faithful and the small things right now God's going to give you big things to be faithful in later or maybe it's the best thing you can do is be faithful where you're at right now. Do that unseen work or later. There will be time for you to do those other things. Yeah I think basically. It's this idea that what you're doing now. The unseen the faithful will eventually give way to this type type of visible fruit. And I think a lot of times when we hear this advice given this word of encouragement it's really delivered to like. We said a MA. Maybe she's got young children and she's just feeling a little discouraged. I mean I think about this season of life. Maybe she feels like she's getting kind of tired of making some of the sacrifices that she's making she's feeling like I'm having to say no to a lot of opportunities for advancement so that I can care for my children. Maybe feeling feeling like she's reached her limits and so again the older woman or the influencers friend. We've done this kind of comes in and shears her own story and can maybe you look back and say you know like when I was a mom of young children. I wasn't able to do all that I wanted to do. But then later when my kids grew up I I did end up getting opportunities -tunities to do some of those things I just needed to be patient and then as I was faithful in those little years I was willing to do unseen things. Those were great practice for what I have and where I'm at today. Yeah and we think there's definitely a kernel of truth to all of them. Yes and that women who say this are coming from a really good place again we we WANNA be the first to say. Hey we we probably version of this ourselves we have had dear friends say this to us and we see it online. It's very it's just very popular. I'm very prevalent. Yeah and I was GONNA say like even as somebody who now has okay. I have a first grade him so far along. But I can even look back and can imagine myself self sitting next to a mom that has a toddler and a baby and going here in a few years like they're probably going to be it's going to change and there's probably GonNa maybe less demands and you may have more time to other things like I can imagine saying we've probably on record our show so don't hold us do it with the point I mean is that it is it is true there is a lot of truth to that and it comes from a good hardware. I think that we're trying to remind one another to be focused on the right things right right. Older women are not younger women to work hard to let their husbands and children to live for Christ and so they're trying to encourage us to be faithful. Live according to your design. Yeah we're doing a lot of unseen work as as Moms of young children just as moms period and so that's an encouragement to stay focused on those those right things right I think another another heart behind it. It's kind of this reminder like following Christ requires leaned on your life it require sacrifice so we see that keep going. Your Life is not your own on keep following Christ or share that share that monastic. And we're saying that we're yearning belting. I thought that was okay. So wow I don't even know where you get an example. Yeah okay so in monasteries. I Dunno go to your own fact checking but in monasteries I think they have bells that ring throughout the day. Like some some monasteries would maybe have seven bells. That ring throughout the day in the point is every time the bell rings the monks stop and pray and the bell is this constant reminder that no matter what they're doing when the bell rings their time is not their own time belongs to God and so it's almost like this forced interruption into what they're doing so that they can continually turn their hearts toward the Lord so I heard the saying that children are like the monastic bell for moms and so every time they come and interrupt us it's this reminder in the little years at our time China's non our own it's meant to sacrifice and I think that that's some of what women as they're saying this to maybe MOMS have young kids like hey. This is the season where the children are. Are that bell that reminds you follow. Christ yes oh. I love that. I thought that was so good. Another thing it encourages us that we actually don't know what God's going to do with our lives you know. There are seasons in life that do bring different opportunities and limitations just like we were talking about what to Cheer Aside They WanNa remind us that. Hey you know in all of of this God is working for our good and his glory and there is greatness. That comes with that. I think another thing that is often wanting to be expressed is this desire desire with maybe decades of life experience of following Christ is saying look. There's a true connection between what you're spending your time on. And what comes of that later in life like God is is working in you things that he's going to use later and I think it's encouraging us to say there's eternal things happening. Just hang on because God is preparing you for something later. And that's a true thing. Remain instead what we invest our timing. Yeah so all of this. This encouragement we think people what they really really mean. If you were to kind of pin them down and ask when by that they're just trying to keep following Christ raced keep giving him everything. Trust Him with your life. No that won't always look the same way it does today. And we know that probably some people might mean this is in a prosperity Gospel e type ways. Caveat for that where like you do x. then you'll get Y but we're not talking about those people we were talking about women who or sharing this in an effort to encourage you and do all the things we kind of just said right and so what we want to transition to as Lord I were processing through this. We're realizing that. Sometimes when we hear this it falls on our hearts and it falls on her ears and such a way that kind kind of like angst and US or maybe it tempts us to respond. In a way that's like inconsistent with what they mean. I oh I think for me personally like when I would hear this especially years ago when I was in the thick of really young children I would think I'm just putting my time in now like I'm I'm GonNa the Sacrifice I'm going to do the hardest thing. I have no recognition. That's okay because someday that's coming. These kids are going to grow. And I'm going to do the bigger better thing. I've just got to be safe. I've gotTA prove proved that can be faithful in these small things right now and when you're tired and you're maybe appealing disappointed about the stuff you're sacrificing or discontent or you're starting to think think. Hey life will be better when kids get older like I was. I think that often it can. This message can fall on us in a way that we cling to him the Prosperity Gospel take it that way yes exactly and I think that this can tempt us to kind of undervalue. Our Work Today Day and so we start to rank. What we're doing now is like well? This is kind of smaller. This feels like a little bit boring or like you're saying like this is my pain my idea because the later data work the work. I'm going to get to June five years or ten years or when my kids go off to school when I'm an empty Nester. Whatever it is then it? Life is going to be more fun in and more satisfying and I'm going to get some of the things that I'm giving up now. And then I think we also start to potentially think of our work for the Lord as a bargaining tool like okay. God like I'm GonNa give you this now but I'm expecting you to pay me back
