"Three starting to wind down brett one of the last presentations was from nintendo and folks were hoping to hear about a new switch. That didn't happen.

Shari Aaron Examines the Use of Voice Assistants as Research Tools
"So we realized that we could deploy these voice survey experiences actually through the alexa or google home devices which live in people's personal spaces and in their personal lives so that led us on a journey to better understand the impact of voice. Assistance and voice technology from many different viewpoints. That helped us really transform the way we think about research and the way we conduct research and so what we realized that we need to conduct research in voice in ways that really match the situation so we can conduct research on how people use their voice devices.

S6 E12 - This is how to get (financially) healthy
"Your housing your food your transportation and then medical and absolute necessities so if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare because you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle spending. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of welcome to another episode of the we serve now. What podcast the show. Where i do my best to answer the questions veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life. My name is aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of the resolve book and that is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through a process of rediscovering. Your life's purpose. After you left the military. And i gotta tell you i have so been looking forward to today's episode because my special guest is here to talk about something that matters to every single one of us is topic money. My guest today is quite boss. Marco is a twelve year navy veteran who deployed in support of operation enduring freedom. He got out got his bachelor of science. Degree started a side gig as a financial coach in two thousand sixteen while working in the nonprofit industry in didn't take marco long to realize that he was struggling with a lot of the same financial issues as the people. He was trying to help so in an attempt to fix his own struggles. Marco applied business cash flow principles to his own finances with an eighteen months. He added nearly one hundred thousand dollars to his net worth and his skills are skills that anyone can use. Marco now has his own financial consulting business. Called live like others. can't marco. it is so good to have you on the show today. Welcome to we serve now. What a thanks for having me on. It's pleasure to be here to serve all the rest of the veterans. They're listening absolutely man absolutely. Been looking forward to have you on the show. So what just take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Tell us a little bit of your back story how you got here. Well you covered a lot of it which was great but like it said so. I served twelve years of military. And when i got out i had a mountain of debt. I think it was like sixty thousand dollars in debt. When i left active duty was going to school got my bachelor business management and when moved down to florida a job. They're kinda help me pay down some more of The debt that ended up having once i got back from afghanistan. 'cause so side note. I went to afghan volunteer to to afghanistan to pay off my consumer debt and paid off the debt and then had a ton of money when i got back and did some investments that were really great but the problem was is. I didn't change my spending habits and some other habits. That i had that were really ingrained so i ended up building up that data again and was down in florida before i moved back home to ohio i ended up with like it probably about another twenty grand worth of debt when i moved back home and i was like said twenty twenty sixteen. I started looking at my personal finances. I got married in two thousand fifteen and after a year of trying to manage to all that we finally got everything into really like one pot start applying the business finance principles to my own personal finances and when i first started i was negative. Twenty five thousand dollars in my net worth so because all everything and i still wanna own twenty five thousand dollars so when i started applying some of those principles and turned it around and it was like oh my gosh in eighteen months be able to get to seventy five thousand and net worth. It was not so. I started taking some of those same principles and teaching some people. I knew some friends. And it's like okay. I really got something here but was really interesting. Is that these same principles basic math principles but these are the same things that have teaching the low income. People that for the nonprofit that i was working at so is really crazy that. There's so much parallel. The only difference is that my mistakes were spectacular because there is a larger amount of income to work with so it's it's really interesting the mindset that we don't teach so i that's what it was like. Okay there's a group of people working in the nonprofit world and the rule low income side of things. There's a whole support system around that but there's very few supports for this this middle class. The wealthy know how to do it. The low income have a ton of support. And when you're trying to make that transition to from low income or even the lower middle-class into an upper middle class even making that transition if you don't have some the fundamentals You're never gonna make it or it's gonna take forever by the time you retire like oh okay now i get. It would have been great thirty years ago. Sure so that's why i got into. That's what i got into being a coach. Cool man all right. So so the first question i have for you is it. It's a simple one. But i think it's one of those things that needs to be addressed because a lot of us find ourselves in a situation where we think that our finances are kind of like a bygone conclusion. You know i grew up in poverty. You know song going to stay in poverty. And so i don't even think about i. Just go through the motions. I you know. I get the car loan. I get credit cards. I get in debt. You know i do all these sayings in. I'm not really focused on my financial health right so when it comes to finances why should i even care. How big of a deal is it. Well i would have to say just starting out. It's actually perfect timing because this last year taught all of us. I mean how many people lost their jobs or were furloughed or laid off and maybe two never even get them back. It can come at any time. And if you're not prepared for it is what a lot of people don't realize is that when they signed their name for alone they're trading future time for something right now and it takes a special type of person to be an entrepreneur to be to be able to go out and create wealth but the majority of americans work for their money as opposed to creating their money. If that makes sense and there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong going to work and and working a nine to five job you can be in everyday millionaire working a nine to five job you can. It's entirely possible but it's just. It's really crazy that when when wrenches thrown into it that we lose traction so fast if thing was like bank rate. It's on the ads that you've been running for me so it's six hundred ten. Ten people don't budget seven ten barely budget. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck. It's it's crazy as stupid number. Eighty percent of the people in the us are living paycheck to paycheck. That's nuts. That really is so eight out of ten people living paycheck to paycheck. Just you know if if you miss a paycheck or like you just mentioned you lose your job because of whatever reason pandemic or anything else. It's a huge impact. Not just. I don't know how i'm gonna pay bills for the next couple of weeks but it can like really really set you back. I think it's a perfect setup to talk about. What you just mentioned budgeting a little bit right. A lot of people don't budget so let's say for example. I know what a budget is. You know i've heard the term of. I've seen it on the news talk about but i've never tried it for me and for my family. Can you give us an insight into that. Like where do you even get started. Well sure an you can do a search on the internet for how i do a budget and almost all of them are going to give you the first piece of bad advice that you will ever hear when it comes to budgeting track your expenses for the next month. No you don't have to track your expenses for the next month. You know why because what you do. This month is the exact same thing he did last month. Just pull your bank statements. Look at your bank statements. That will is a great snapshot of your personal financial behavior and what your lifestyle choices are and when you take a look at that then you've got you've got gotta place all of those into a it or as we'll talk a little bit here a of a wall for foundation. There are four things that you have to take care of everything else is fluff and you can create whatever whatever other buckets you wine or i mean flake from an accounting. Were coming perspective. These are lineups okay. So you've got you've got your income and your expenses and then your expenses or all of your line break it down and then it breaks down even further when you file your taxes so every category that you make is a line item but there's four that are super important. Four and a lot of the times people tried to budget everything and they say okay budget down every last dollar and even the even the dollars that you're gonna put into savings if you don't have a good foundation to take care of the basic things that you need to have. It doesn't matter what you put into savings. It doesn't matter what what you spend on clothes. It doesn't excuse me it doesn't matter what what extra expenses and entertainment things that you wanna do. You've got to have these four things. Take care of i and what's interesting about them. Is it lines up. Perfectly with maslow's hierarchy and i'll leave it at that for further on all right so talk to us a little bit more about the four walls right. You mentioned the four walls and you know unite chatted about these a little bit before we go kind of hit the record button here as we were preparing for the show but that i'd never heard that term before the four walls. Can you explain like what those four walls are shirt. A quick back story on on the four walls. Is that if you do any personal financial searching on the internet. You're probably gonna come across the name. Dave ramsey dave ramsey. Oh yes some guy of phenomenal mindset really. Is there some things. Because i'm a business guy. There's some things that i can't entirely subscribe to because for me personally. There is some good debt. Because i'm a business guy. I used other people's money to make more money for my business. So that i can go ahead and potentially hire somebody in sure. Grow the economy that right right so for me. There is some good data. But from dave ramsey's perspective. There's no debt is good so the four walls are the four basic things that you need to survive. And when i say talking about maslow's hierarchy the bottom two levels of maslow's hierarchy pyramid are psychological and safety and that deals with food shelter and essentially money and i clued transportation in that because you need transportation get to and from work sir so the four walls are actually order. I it's it's your housing your food your transportation and then i. I don't like saying catch off for this last one but medical and other absolute necessities. So if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare 'cause you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle. Spending this is still considered lifestyle spending as well but this is your baseline lifestyle. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of and as you're going through the math and figure out okay. I'm not bringing in enough to cover the us basic four things. you're living to lavishly. You have played into the game of catching up with the joneses. You're trying to find too many influencers and live like them and showcase to the world. What all the amount of debt that you're bringing on is essentially what you're showcasing. You're not living the good life you're actually living a really crappy life. So that's kind of the premise of the four walls. And it when. I didn't really know that term when i first started doing my own budgeting but i realize kay. I've got regular monthly expenses that i always have to pay out have to pay my mortgage. I always have to pay the insurance. I always have to put gas in my car. Food on the table and a couple of medications and and some clothes. Those are the things that always spend money on every single month. What's fantastic about that is because it is you have the ability to look back over the last twelve months and really identify what your lifestyle is just by those expenses alone. Yeah that's that's interesting and it's it's definitely a a i won't say it's that different but it's definitely different than like you said what a lot of folks are gonna find when they do that. Google search for when they do that duck go search right on the internet of. Hey how do. I do a budget you know. What are the first things. I i should consider and and using hierarchy of needs and for those who are familiar with it. This basically just a pyramid that that stacks from bottom to top the needs. Every person has basic needs like markos already talked about psychological needs and then tops off. Self-fulfilment needs achieving your full potential including creative activities. And things like that. But with the four walls i know. They're all critical right but is one more important than the other. Is that the all really really for lack of a better term foundational for your financial health. They all are foundational. But dave will argue. And i kinda back this little bit. Is that if you have a choice between spending money on your electric bill and spending money on food you buy food and you can work with the company to to keep your electricity on food. Would probably the be the highest priority. Next would be your housing so everything that's involved with your housing your mortgage your mortgage. Iran's your utilities and then transportation would be third because there are things that you can do if you're spending too much on transportation. There's things that you can do to to lower those expenses but we can get into that little bit and then obviously medical. Now it's it'd be a toss up then if you've got to take medications or you need food a well. Okay then yeah but but at the same time. If the majority americans being healthy and not needing a whole lot of medications food would be the top priority so food station and then the other necessities sure sure so that so that kind of helps me prioritize as far as you know if i do find myself in a situation like I don't know what i'm going to you know. I only have so much money this month. And i can't pay whatever this one bill. Is you know kind of helps me. Prioritize food housing transportation medical. You know and then if it's more detailed it's down to the really really fine details of a few dollars here versus a few dollars here then. I think that's something you really just sit down like. If it's if it's you by yourself you just make the best decision right an absolutely. If it's you with your family you know you sit down with your spouse and or with your partner and you you talk about it like what do we want to do this month to make ends meet well and and i would say to that the amount of people who actually don't realize where their money's going is phenomenal so he say eighty percents living paycheck to paycheck. I would say one hundred percent of that. Eighty percent have no idea whether money's going and they don't realize that they probably have enough coming in to cover these four walls and then some that the problem comes is when they make all of the additional lifestyle choices and then they're like oh. I don't have enough money for food while it's because they just bought a thousand dollar iphone. So i mean like i know that's really rudimentary example. Because most people are buying their phones on the month to month plan that they put on that they tacked onto your bill which side note really crazy. I was trying to buy a new phone for my wife. No cellphone store will let me pay full price outright for the phone. They forced me to put it onto a monthly plan. Really i is crazy not i was like. I've got nine hundred dollars. That i'm gonna pay you right now and they don't want it. They want it on the monthly plan. So what's funny is so my family. We are an android family. Okay we've always been. We've never gotten into the iphones. You know my daughter. She's a teenager now. So she's kind of leading me toward the iphone but we've always been an android family and for the past few years. I have bought all of our phones directly from samsung. I don't know if you can do that with apple or not if it has to be carrier specific and you have to do over a month to month plan but if i go to samsung dot com. I can just buy that phone outright. I couldn't yeah. I basically i swipe my card more or less you know and you type in my numbers. He and then a couple of days i get new phone on my on my doorstep and so have to remember that for my wife because she's a samsung guy. I'm an iphone. Yeah for sure and so we when we started doing that. We've been with our with our carrier for. I don't know five six seven years now and so we're not really planning on leaving and going to another carrier. But i do get the unlocked phones just in case i need to right and so and so it is really nice to just be able to swipe their credit card and be like. Hey here you go. Here's all the money up front. I don't have to worry about that That money coming out every month right so off that sidetrack for second sorry about that it was just. It was really crazy when i was trying to do that. I couldn't believe that is crazy for phone. So why things that. When when i sit down with somebody and i'm going through this. Is that a lot of people. Don't realize all of the essentially the line items within each of these categories so under housing. There's a couple of lines you've got your mortgage or your rent which includes particularly if you have a mortgage. It also

Even last two onto that zander bogart's a basic both run score and the red sox winning six four completing the sweep again. It's the first time. The red sox walk into yankee stadium and leave with a sweep in a decade prior to this series. Boston lost eleven straight away games against the bombers.

"I know a lot of people have said here. We are the playoff stepped in. Get in right to play in game now. Lebrons knocked out first. time since. Twenty ten steph. Lebron will not be in the finals. nba finals. I mean think about that. So this is a changing of the guard. Something new but nobody should be surprised. I know chris was on his high horse and when they won game three dominant in control. Anthony davis had averaged thirty four points. Aaron in those two wins remember. They lost the opener and anthony. Davis had a bad game and then he played really well so chris thought that you know it was in the bag. A lot of people did started making arrangements for the lakers to make it to the finals.

Because too many things had to go right and they're dealing with two players who have been banged up and injured two star players and then air look at the reserves and the role players and the supporting cast.

You need to give the right or the access to be able to sell more shares. That would happen in twenty twenty two. This goes back to an explanation. Explains what we talked about on the program yesterday about that and hold investor connect idea. Which is he needs these folks to give him authorisation. They're out of shares. The shares can be sold to the public as of now so they can't raise additional money that they are asking for five hundred million additional shed digital shares.

Because they were out of shares one of those shares are i thought they were out of shares and i think the market but they were shares.

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 05
"Was drafted another god. I'm fairly high on From clemson at cal. I'll let you discuss him. I think about what rogers. I'm not nearly as high on rogers as they consis I think a lot of people saw him when he went to green bay. I think everybody's been so ready for the green bay packers to have another wide receiver inserted in the draft. You know and we're just intimidating in anticipating but you know. I really don't think amari rogers profiles is the number two wide receiver in the fact. That rogers is a situation is so up in the air to say the the to say the least you know. I am not projecting broader. You're gonna be there long term and if that's the case you know is jordan love gonna be all support a wide receiver you know. Are we even sure that amari rogers is better than allen. Lazard now is dead fund as the guy that they went out and got in free agency it to be the number to receiver going into last year before he opted out. You know he's back on the roster as well and he's only twenty seven years old. I think people are really forgetting about devin. Funchess to be honest with you You know this is a guy that has already been a top twenty wide receiver in his career. So i think there's a lot more competition in green bay than a lot of people are are are getting Giving them credit for and The roger situation really makes me uneasy. Amaury writers has some talent. I i just don't think he's anything special. I just think that he's at best a middle level starter of the nfl. And i don't see much of a window of him being much higher especially as long as davante adams is on that team. 'cause i just don't see that the target share i mean it's a. It's a team that clearly wants to run the ball as much as possible. So i'm not nearly as how marta riders. I i know a lot of people are people are taking them in mid second rounds now and i think that that's a mistake. I think he was the best of water. She would come out clemson for the tape stuff that i watch. Those are good points. There's a reason as to why. I say fairly high. It's because i have a lot of the same reservation that you do. But and i do. I'm generally concerned about aaron rodgers in the future in green bay with the quarterback situation. But i have to look back at amari rogers talent and what he did in his last year and clemson and what he did was ball out in my opinion. Seventy seven receptions. Thousand twenty yards seven touchdowns. Yes he had. Trevor lawrence thong him. The ball but still in a shortened season are very impressive. Numbers and amari. Rogers is a guy that has pretty much been undervalued this entire process and now all of a sudden he's going green bay people hiding him and i'm not high on him because he's going to green by on more high in him because of the talent and the potential that i see and i do think that he has the potential to be the number two receiver in green bay S a good gig. Because even if aaron rodgers is not there in a long term disturbance excellence head coach matt floor and they still have a quarterback enjoy jordan love and we really don't we haven't seen much from during love so we can't make a lot of assumptions. But he was still you still first round pick in an quarterback the has a lot of potential people were comparing him to patrick mahomes and he. He was more of a quarterback they just needed to be developed. So i think that. I think that there's a good chance that jordan love could turn into a successful quarterback if the packers ended up do and not Having rogers under center. So i think the during the love isn't a terrible option there and lathered and function function all could be a lot number two receiver in that office. But i think long term that amari. Rogers is the better prospect for may so that is why i tend to be a little bit higher on the mar bader's

"aaron" Discussed on The Aaron Parsons Project Podcast
"Sometimes christians they get too caught up in the fundamentals. I've been trying to solve my own suffering by hacking away at my problems using the fundamentals that i learned in the church and in my experience nothing has helped me even when i pray to god asking for him to come through to perform a miracle or something twenty nineteen. After selling my house. I realized that when one gets caught up in fundamentals and reacts towards life based on biased binary facts that were learned. There's no room to ask questions or to see the world from another perspective. Philosophy is really about the study of ideas and their power over our lives. Alfred alder once said that a person's behavior springs from his ideas so studying ideas whether religious secular liberal conservative. Whatever it's important but it's not just important to understand the actions of others but to understand ourselves our faith why people live the way they live and it's also important in order to understand god and to understand life itself. Studying philosophy helps humans. Because it's like a hammer that helps us as a species. Build our faith creatively. We have to work on this creation. In order to make our faith their own life itself has guided by many ideas such as truth beauty justice meaning morality and much more studying all of this on top of biblical diet can lead to a greater understanding of some of the most important aspects of living life. Let me move on to talk about. Meaning the question of meaning is one of the most important aspects of anyone's life. Viktor frankl the writer of the book. Man's search for meaning. He recognized that we suffer. Because we don't take proper steps to finding meaning frankl believes that finding meaning is important key to mental health. Philosophy should be part of christianity because it's a critical tool for examining our life into find meaning in life but the church one embrace philosophy in itself because it stuck in its own methods in dogmatic views of examining life and finding meaning it depends solely on one holy man jesus christ rather than operating on interdependence the best of philosophy is actually giving me helpful insights that we need to address. Life's ultimate questions and to help us find meaning and purpose. The truth is that every second. We look at something whether it's on a screen or walk in the park influenced by a world of ideas. We need to study them. We need to look at them closely because studying them in an effort to understand them in their effect on us is a worthy important thing for our mental health. The truth is that philosophy can actually help. A lot of the characters involved in the stories told in the beginning of this episode. The truth is that most of the time. I we go through the motions. Just say whatever and live relies with the set of guidelines that cheaper identity without taking the time to shape it ourselves by asking questions were pondering through things. I think the problem is that we've let many benign parts of our lives dictate. How we live in think rather than rather than just trying to live independently. We let her job support us on autopilot and then we go home and watch netflix. We lead a pastor. Tell us how to see the world. And then sharon debate about it on facebook. Afterwards as teens and young adults we go to school and then we come home. We share someone else's thoughts on tiktok or instagram. Or we hang out with friends and talk about who's getting with who while deciding what sports are video games to play. We work all day after we work. We party we are hobbies. Pray remake love at night. I've known as a musician as a christian and even as a child that there was more to life than any of this. But i never figured things out until i started studying philosophy. You see what philosophy does is. It breaks you out of a dogmatic way of thinking. It breaks you away from viewing and living in the world just going through the motions when all we do is just work playing get sucked into politics news tv and religion without exploring ideas which has pleasure materialism embraced toxic positively. We think we're always right and we never feel. Were wrong we get stuck in certainty for the victim. We'd become angry. we become entitled. We think the world should revolve around us without taking responsibility for what matters. We need to understand life itself rather than get mad about a couple of democrats pedophile trying to swallow her babies. We need to go through suffering of sobbing when millionaires make more money. And yes they think this is wrong. So if you're frustrated with evangelical ism like i don't wanna get caught up in all the craziness of this world or if you're looking for something more than just living life. Once this whole thing is over with with covid. I see tickets studying philosophy in your spare time can do this by journaling after reading a few books or if your mental health is fragile. Maybe go for counseling or therapy with someone versed in philosophy. Now one of the books. I would recommend if you're just getting started with studying. Philosophy is a book that's changed my life now because of the language i'm going to be a little careful with stating the title. It's called the subtle art of not giving a word that rhymes with firetruck mark manson. The author of this book emphasizes the importance of philosophy. Because finding something important and meaningful in your life is the most productive use of your time and energy life itself has problems associated with it and finding meaning in your life will help sustain the effort needed to overcome the particular problems face in a sense mark rates that the key to living a good life is not giving a damn about more things but rather giving a dam only about things that align with your personal values some of the greatest points he makes that suffering is inevitable and that what most people in the middle class consider first world problems their life problems really just side effects of not having anything more important to worry about.

"We're at the point. Now where normal is dead. And simply saying god will make away when there is no way is not going to be a helpful. Statement is not going to be helpful unless each of us does something to keep the world turning looking at proverbs twenty four fourteen. It says no also that wisdom is sweet to your soul. If you find it there is a future hope for you and your hope will not be cut off so i think we really need to sit down and take a look at what needs to be done. We can't just sit in our tribal bubbles anymore. A lot of conservative sino. They want their businesses to going while most of us who are left of center need to feed our families and create a better future for our children. Someone posted that the talk with people who won't wear masks or others who voted in politicians. Who won't pass laws. That helped the little guy. The truth is the hatred that came with this is going to be our next pandemic yes. I'm still very angry. Especially with some of the articles. My friends have been sharing. But i can't let that stop me. Spring is coming. Easter is coming very soon. Don't need things to go back to normal. I'm sure that all of us want to thrive pass normal not long ago a place that volunteered are called scope opened up a shelter for those who were homeless and struggling with mental health.

There should be a link to all the donation details on scopes website. If you want to help those who struggle to get back on. Their feet scopes a great cause and their tax deductible. Now you're probably wondering aaron. Are you a little bit. Scared catching covid. I'm slightly hesitant to do anything even with the high chance of recovering survival. But i'm more afraid that i won't have learned. Anything changed for the better while. I was staying home in working on myself all this time. I've been exercising taking online courses and even started writing a book. That should take me somewhere once. Everything's running smoothly again. If it doesn't then. I have no idea what the future has in store for me or the friends. I can still see after all this.

"Somebody's personality on test when it comes to just a snapshot of the moment that they're taking it absolutely in this in these are all fun things that we can really do. You know we're talking about college. Though now we're talking about a house level decision and some of them. That's GonNa make such an impact on a kid's future that there is nothing else to compare it against gets in that sense right. You know you can't you can't match a career based on just one personality tests and you can't it also doesn't take into consideration today's economy a and what jobs are out there like what the really really like so. I'm I'm a realtor my other job. I do it for fun for friends. I I really feel like ambiance is a lot like zillow when it comes to finding a house. It's a really fun tool. You get to go on there and you get to see like what houses are available. Would you know they last sold for that kind of thing but it's not perfect zillow will feed you. A lot of houses actually aren't available or they sold but you know zillow's not updated and whatnot. I'm not trying to rag on sale because it's really fine and I like to go on it too but you can't just you can you theoretically can go on and find a house and just do all of it you can you can buy it. You know yourself hyphen and go through the contract work and navigate it all yourself but you don't know if you're getting the best deal. You probably are not getting the best deal. You don't now if you're getting the right fit for what you're looking for in the first place you you know zillow's not gonNa you know do home inspection for you or are you know there. There's just a lot of other things that go into it that you know. A website tool can't do you really you really need to do more homework and more personal work. I mean you deal with bought right useful tools. I think that's the marketable difference between this and which you're describing zillow navy and then the rest of like like college planning on working with somebody on it. There's a difference when a tool and then a process and a person very say so all these great tools roles and there are all useful in some degree but at the same time like you said like Zillow isn't GonNa go and actually negotiate a contract with you. I mean how many people out there literally early raise your hands as you're reading this have done a physio and for sale by owner yeah and how many of you thought about it and then thought otherwise about it because it's overly complicated on how to buy a house you have to line up the financing. There's so much to it and for good reason you go to somebody right because you're literally spending two hundred thousand dollars in most cases on something that's going to pretty much change your life being buying a house and then you have to have fifty the witnesses to sign off on it before you even get to that right so just seeing pictures on a website. It's like you're. You're kind of taking a risk right. They're not doing you know your full due diligence. If you jus- go that route but you know I am here to tell you that you know figuring out your college plan is actually way more complicated and way harder than buying a house. So you know I mean more yeah. I said on both sides and and it's a lot more at risk. There's a lot more. There's a lot more that is confusing. takes US two years right. I mean you can buy a house and hopefully a couple of weeks. A COUPLE OF MONTHS TAKES US two years to do this absolutely right and but the the the the inevitable issue and of course in this where I was trying to make these connections so people can see how these things connect to their normal lives and and again why now is a great tool to get you kind of often Ryan to some degree but it's not a replacement for just good in person working communication with a with an adviser things like this again in house analogy. Let's say any given your city. There's three thousand houses on the market which might be actually pretty accurate. Are you going to sift through three thousand houses on Zillow and people are you going to sift through all the options that you need an order by that place and then find like okay are the neighborhoods lineup to what we're looking for Do we have enough bedroom all those things. Are you going to do this. Forty two hundred schools in this country makes it a lot more complicated. There's four thousand two hundred university in this country each one with about two hundred majors in ranging from price tags for about two thousand dollars to it's eight hundred thousand dollars per year. That's what you're dealing with now beyonce and a teenager. That's our solution to currently like really like. That's that's what we're saying like a fifteen year old sixteen year old seven zero. Here's will go figure that out. Yeah play on the website and find your school. Put it that way not dogging the onset aw it's about finding a place for now beyond just explaining what is what is right yeah. I feel like we're doing kids. It's a disservice in general in this country saying like here. You're sixteen years old. Just go figure out what the heck you. WanNa do for the rest of your life but I think there needs to be a lot more conversation. Surrounding it like you said there needs to be a person that they're working with and that they're able to talk through their thoughts and feelings about these things not just say hey. Here's the results of a test yeah. Go on and can figure out what you WANNA do now because it's not going to take your job. Shadowing may help you develop your career path once it's given you said you'd be a really great dentist. It's it's on help you develop that yeah. They're not going to have that confidence that they would. If they tasted at touched it felt it out there in the field experience you get doing job shadowing like you said and doing research on careers and on schools guided research not just like here's a book of one hundred and seventy seven major sort through them but yeah they won't they won't don't feel as confident when their and their direction. I think about the other side and so I I think the the core issue about this concept of what nonviolence Lavigne's is versus. What we're trying to make it be is one in this country that it's just like? We just want the quickest and easiest route right but that's not always the best answer and in fact. It's not even close. I I just want everybody to always think of this college planning thing in the same level of magnitude as again. We're talking about buying house today. It is of that magnitude greater magnitude. Yes it's a greater magnitude even of buying retirement and you don't go to a bad for that either like you actually actually go to people for these large scale investments. That's what colleges. It's a large scale investment academically financially your kids future. We want what's best for kids across the board. One small tool. That's useful part of this is not the solution to it. It's part of the solution and we want to make sure that we can understand Dan. This has a whole that we can see like it takes that it takes two years of good guidance of understanding what it is you. WanNa do on one to one scale almost in order to be able to figure this stuff out is again. Anything of these large asset magnitudes of these large asset buys us. Just say we're we use each other. We use people in order to be able to do these things things same deal here we haven't even mentioned either of the fact that how likely is your kid to actually sit down and use them the accountability their self guide your way through all this by the way out of these forty two hundred plus for you and the financing for four two and we haven't even really gone and that's this is really honestly for a whole other podcast but the fallout of not doing this right not planning for college right like what what's the consequence well and. I'm sure we will go through Alan podcast but the truth is. I'm sure anybody listening can automatically put a story in their head. Yup of how this has been done really badly and how this can ended up really badly. We'll save that topic for Halloween. I mean just like high level like what's the consequences so you you know you go to the Ron College. Pick the wrong major. Stay there too long and up taking on rampant amounts of debt none in that. Let's see what's your all true. Imagine the school has the majors you like but it has no intention of doing the major in the way that you wanted imagine if you're doing use this example a lot if you're doing marketing and you're thinking Oh. I'm really highly creative. I can't wait to get into design and then you get a very statistics laden math heavy marketing program and you're GonNa hate life in that program and you're going to think oh my gosh. I hate marketing know the truth. Is this version version of that and you pick. The school didn't do it in the way that you wanted to so now you're for your job prospects or you can just put your major probably. GonNa Switch your major into something. That has nothing intendant on what you really wanted to do. So now you've screwed up on the financial structure because you've really haven't paid attention that the academics that you're going there for completely changed and your job prospects and what you're going to do afterward is completely changed and now your problem school for five years and maybe scholarship money but ran after four because because that's how long they run so now you're paying for that last year or maybe even two extra years. It can get to be a real snowball of problem okay. I think this is really helpful awful for parents especially parents of seniors that are hearing about now the aunts and just like maybe even for the first time a lot of my kids. I'm like do you use. I think I've heard the word before four eighth grade. We did a tutorial again. NAVIENT is a useful tool. No doubt about it. We use it all the time whenever our kids have had that system set up at the high schools in order to help us finish the college application process. It's the perfect way if I could even say hi how to submit transcripts to letters of REC that way they're they're automatically. All of the guidance counselor have to do is push a button. It makes very seamless with common APP. It's really awesome those pieces aces so I think that there's just understand the difference between the tools versus the trade yup right and seeing what we can make make differences out of those things okay well Aaron. Where can our listeners go..

"Many students are now having to try and wheel and deal with <hes> accepted students to try and put it off a year or a semester so they accepted too many students which they all this. This part is very much like buying plane tickets where they overbook purposefully knowing that people aren't going to show up seats are going to be taken so they over book a flight same deal here now. The truth is into the vast majority of cases. The actual teams that work for these schools usually predicts pretty good virginia tech did not which is very surprising because it's a math and engineering school. Go figure you think they could add <hes> but <hes> yeah they had too many students that said yes and so you run into this other problem where now they don't have any space for these kids and so what do you do so that could be a whole other podcast so the takeaway today are common app is now open. You should do your homework in advance vance. Have the checkless page over mother's maiden name birthdays resumes a._c._t. Scores all of that jazz said do are your essays early. Be thoughtful about your essays. Have them correlate with your career plan. So career planning is important then. You're ready to do the common. I'm an app go to school guidance counselor plug for you and then and only apply to five to seven schools seven so that's how you do it anything else. I'm gonna throw out in there. <hes> if you are on a system like navient or something like that do go talk to guidance counselor even more because letters of rec and in a few other things get submitted through that so usually a guidance counselor have a senior night or a calm or navy night <hes> at the beginning of school year so make sure you you go through through that because those since they are digital sources they actually link to common app on the back end so your letters of rec in transcripts kitson bidded digitally through those we're not experts in them by any measure your guidance counselor should be if they have the system otherwise they shouldn't have bought it but i would go to them in order to do that too absolutely and then the other thing <hes> again make sure that once you've applied you look through the portals figure out what else is necessary i can't i can't tell you the number of students who came in there like i didn't know so. I had to do a supplemental so it's right there. It's not always not every school asks for supplemental. Some ask for several syracuse asked for seven last year for one one of my students <hes> but you need to know that right because you don't want to get to a week before you think you're ready. Everything's reading or applying and realize oh man. I still have a three hundred word supplemental right because he thinks her equally is important. I think of every piece of this process as like a key that opens a gate right your a common application and with all of your scores in your transcript and your activities is what opens the first gate and then they read your essay they may determine whether or not that opens the next gate then maybe there's a satis up lamented that they read and that determines what gets you in but at any point in this process you know you you can forget a stab. You can just kind of do a slips shot job and get things done at the last minute and that will close. There's a gate for you and that seems really silly so i mean honestly if you are a strong candidate if you look great on paper if everything should line up for you then take hate the extra time to get the supplemental stein get a really quality essay written for your common app essay or the coalition they're different by the way to coalition also requires an essay but make sure that you've done that extra work do not do not blow all of the hardware that you've done all through high school. You've done three years at this point of quality work. Don't blow it with last minute essay writing. I know we talked a little bit about this when we talked about that say but don't vote with <hes> with writing or supplemental at the last minute or just thinking your essays fine or that. You're going to recycle something which you can do but we encourage you to so take your time. It's if if you come to if few students or anybody if they ask you well so do this part. If you're thinking that then you might as well just not do any of it honestly because it's one of those this things have diligence. If if if you're being shoddy about it in your feeling on a section or you forget to kiss it goodbye stun and if a school says <hes> this is not mandatory but recommended do it. You're gonna show your demonstrated interest by doing the work. You're like. It's worth it to me right additional three hundred word essay because i really wanna go there. Don't expect any favours from school in terms of scholarship money in terms of emissions or anything if you don't do all the things whether or not not they're required a recommended just do them all and that's basically just do do and do a thorough. Do the best work you can. This is important exactly and by starting early <music>. You're starting. If you really are doing it. In august you have several weeks before school starts. You can get so much of it done so that you are not trying to cram this in the kids who really struggle last here from where my our students came aboard with in the ball rather than earlier because they just had less time they were doing career development and researching schools at the same the time they were applying and writing supplementals and that was just i mean and then actually trying to go to school and also played sports so what you have the time. Go ahead and get it done early. Don't try to mix it all together. <hes> one of this little side story but one we were talking to our students story and one of the workshops and hannah who is one of our awesome. I'm writing center. Advisors was talking about going to a halloween party that she'd been invited to <hes>. I think her her senior year of high school and her stuff was all done right. Everything is due november first. She had everything done and the girl who was throwing. The party went upstairs to her bedroom to great an essay the party off on the kids. Obviously that's why we sit down with you now. They get it done and hannah's is like and she's like party on purpose so that i could go and help her work so i just thought that was really funny but sad to i just i you're busy.

Let's started their gives a little your story. Well, obviously, I'm Madeleine I am I can't state right now, I'm studying visual communication design, which is basically along fancy way of saying graphic design getting to visual communication design was I feel like someplace that. I don't know. I would like to think that I would have gone there eventually, but I honestly don't know if I wouldn't have gotten there without college liftoff, which sounds a little cheesy, but it's true finding graphic design. I think I felt like just seemed like very RTD me. I and I was like, I don't know. I'm like, I'm not really an artist. Like, I don't I like, I don't know like. I mean, I like doing design would be cool. But like, I don't know. I don't think I would like talented enough for it. I don't think I have enough like artistic ability. But once we dug into like, what all the multifaceted aspects of what graphic design could be. It was really exciting because I design it's truly the place where like our meets like thinking. Yeah. I just think I was really lucky even just with like college of off like once we decided, okay? Like graphic design seems like it's like a good place to like start with once we got there. Like, I know there was so many different kind of like things within graphic design that I didn't realize like some schools are more artsy.

"And nobody knows that. They are actually if the infant less do this right there actually hindering that student success when it comes to going forth in life. So, you know at dawn on me like college liftoff is the solution. What they do is actually the solution. So I went home, and I told Erin like you need to you need to make this thing you need to spread the word about this. And he's like well help me. So. Earlier. AM? So so that's why I'm here to spread the word about this to really help students and families understand that there's a better way to do this, and we are sending our students to college. So that they can be successful in life. But you know, we need to know what what that entails, and we need to do it the right way or else it's going to backfire we'll votes port of the bigger picture rate. And this is something we talk about all the time at work. But it's nobody realizes this. The college planning affects every aspect of what we do all of truth be told. I mean, we have a suit loaded problem where it's at one point five trillion dollars for credit. That's going to check every other market along the way, I mean second to mortgage debt like credit card debt is in the ballpark of this. So when we're talking about college planning, we really have to think about this differently. I mean, we're buying an asset that now we have on the books at one point five trillion dollars in total that in proper, budgeting and crew planning. It's the greatest hindrance for college. Graduate success as exist today. But people are starting to see this. I mean, we're starting to see this a little bit more and more. We talk about it. As what time in the morning to this conversation is still say it's like what five forty five in the morning to this conversation. That's an old Reagan slogan. I don't know if anybody ever remember that. But the people are starting to see that in. That's why we went to actually start adding members to our team this past fall we end up getting over two hundred applicants just for one chop hosting actually. So what what do we do instead of hiring one? We actually did hire three. We just went ahead and hire three instead to kind of really get us rolling. But we narrowed it down to the three applicants we really thought. Had a passion for this work and advance understanding what's really happening with college today. And as we talk through this podcast, especially in future episodes, college has gone crazy to say, the least and really have a good grasp on that makes a big difference. And that's how we really wanted to be able to add people to our team that really understood that. So I'm happy to introduce you to our team. Here are to move visors. We have Yoshi Juliane, and Sarah Yoshi, I'm gonna put hotseat I tell us more about what? Are you doing here? Why do you want to be here? What what what would drive your passion about this work that you're doing? All right. Aaron so I think the answer this question I have to really talk about my background little bit. So I went to a high of state and I ended up with a BS anthropolgy and minor in biology. I think the key words here really are ended up because I don't I don't think that was quite something that I consciously decided to do, you know, the one thing I wanted when going into college was really just to do something I was interested in and I mean answering via totally fit the Bill, but as those are liberal arts, I kinda got exposed to a bunch of different disciplines, which for better for worse. I found a lot of things interested in and maybe some things I might have been interested in more. I mean, I'm happy with my path. I'm happy to be here. And I'm also happy. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to teach rod last year in Japan. But now I'm here, and I just wish wish that had some knowledge about the world of work and the world the school because that's really what I think's important..

But I was a real estate agent. I still am. But I was it was a fulltime real estate agent and and doing marketing as well, you know, throughout my career helped clients that had either ended up not being able to buy because they had student too much didn't loan debt or couldn't qualify for a mortgage. They really needed to buy a house that they needed for their family because of student loan debt. And after we were married, I I was helping clients, and it just dont on me like, wow, you know, this families in their mid thirties and really can't afford to buy the house that they need for their family because both parents had amassed so much student loan debt. And I just thought parents really well-meaning smart parents send their kids to college, you know, with every intent of setting them up for success..

"Daniel daybreak you and Severo for Tato after a night out at a club with Hernandez in the car that night. Was Alexander Bradley, his former friend and drug dealer and the man Hernandez allegedly shot in the face in Florida. The motive for this murder was a perceived disrespect over drink being spill that's prosecutor Patrick Hagan few believe Alexander, Bradley, and even the corroborating evidence from some of the other bouncers in the club that Aaron Hernandez had this propensity to be almost snap at the drop of a hat, and that he would be paranoid and think people were in his words trying him. I don't know anyone other than Alexander Bradley who witnessed a spilled drink. That's defense attorney Jose Baez again, none of the surviving. Cape. Verdeans saw. That no one in the club saw that not a single person were they able to find that came forward and said, yeah, I saw somebody spilled drink on Aaron Hernandez says Bradley cut a deal with prosecutors to save himself from murder charges and that the story about a spill drink was made up. Prosecutors say Hernandez and Bradley were together in a silver SUV with Rhode Island plates that night one of them was driving the other one pulled the trigger. But who was who police found that car a year later in Bristol in the garage of Hernandez cousin Tana singleton? So the question for the jury wasn't whether Hernandez was in the car that seemed obvious, but whether he was the one who actually fired the gun, my colleague at the globe. Travis Anderson covered that second trial. He said broadly came with some obvious problems as a key witness Alexander, Bradley, also, of course, had a very lengthy crew. History, a lot of drug charges, and and the like, and the defence exploited that thou text messages between Aaron and Bradley were Bradley was saying Aaron, you know, listen, I've got wolves on deck. You know, you know, suggesting I've got I've got people, you know, who who can take you out that kind of thing talked about the guns the arsenal that sort of thing. The defense, you know, constantly sort of habit at this idea at that second trial that you know, Bradley was the killer. Hernandez lawyers tried to get his family to come to court to support him. But his mother never showed up. She said she couldn't take another trial. His brother went once Shanna Jenkins was a constant presence one day. She brought their daughter and Hernandez blew her a kiss. Early in the preceding the defense, suddenly became worried. Prosecutors were going to come out with a surprise in court that Hernandez had had relationships with men. Everybody was really angry. That's George leeann tire. We were angry not because we thought that it would have a material affect on the facts of the case. But number one angry that they were going to try to turn this case into a circus and number two how wrong it was legally aside from morally in my opinion to try to use this as a way to try to convict someone Hernandez's defense team felt they had to warn his fiancee. This could happen and Hernandez was upset. His concern. Always was. What the impact on somebody who he loved and who truly loved him and had stood by him all these years and. How her she would be? And that was his main concern about the Gatien in the end his sexuality. Never did come up in court. There are job sites that make you wait for the right candidates.

"While Hernandez was on trial. The patriots won Super Bowl. The team road through Boston streets on dunk boats to celebrate pass throngs of cheering fans. The parade ended at city hall less than a mile from the jail where Hernandez used to watch those boats from his cell window. As the trial went on prosecutors described carefully orchestrated execution style, killing they said, Hernandez had arranged to meet Odin Lloyd the night of the murder, then drove him to a remote area and shot him six times. Police found keys to a car. Hernandez had rented in the dead man's pocket. And there were surveillance video from inside Hernandez's house showing him carrying what appeared to be a gun shortly after the murder one thing they couldn't establish a motive. But it didn't seem to matter after deliberating for six days. The jury reached its verdict. Is the defendant not guilty of murdering earthly grading or guilty of murder in the second degree. Letter in the first degree. The jury found the crime was not premeditated. But they did find evidence of extreme atrocity will cruelty. Hernandez dropped into his chair his face blank Jenkins sitting behind him cried. Uncontrollably. Odin Lloyd's mother seated on the other side of the gallery cried to after the trial on the steps of the courthouse. She thanked her heavenly master for Justice being served. Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Life was about to change big time for Aaron Hernandez eight days after he was found guilty of murder. Hernandez was transferred to Sousa Baranovsky Correctional Center. It's a maximum security prison, forty miles west of Boston a sprawling place surrounded by razor wire. And it was nothing like the Suffolk County jail at Sousa inmates spent about twenty hours a day in their cells stiffening the place to be the maximum of the state. Horrible place period. Darryl Jones knows a lot about Sousa Baranovsky. He just got out of prison after thirty two years for a wrongful murder conviction. The last nine years he spent at Sousa he'd see Hernandez in the hall now, and then and sometimes in the visiting room. He lived actually originally own gray side, I live on the green side. So you live on different size. They separate the gains. And so the Latin kings, and bloods and different games. Live on that side and GD's and Crips live on the green side. He was always respectful to me out respect what him in speaking. It wasn't like AM to big Spiegel. We didn't speak he spoke. So he was cool. We don't get to hear from Hernandez directly after this. The department of correction would not release phone tapes from his time at the max, they also refuse to let us visit the prison. But we did learn about his life there from hundreds of pages of records. We were able to obtain and from people close to Hernandez for one thing. He started getting in trouble almost immediately within his first few weeks. He was caught with the fresh tattoo on his neck. He also served as a lookout during a fight. He got sent to the whole segregated from all the other inmates for ten days in two years at Sousa. He was moved to twenty three different cells, Darryl Jones says that's a lot prison. Records say Hernandez was a member of the bloods Jones says it was more likely to Latin kings, Hernandez wrote letters asking to be assigned to certain cellblocks at one point. He asked for cellmate because he was lonely alter no, avail, Jose Baez. His defense lawyer says Hernandez got other inmates attention because of who he was well prisoners are going to test. Did you all the time, and they're going to try and make a name for themselves and Aaron was a target for that Erin constantly had to be on guard for that? And lucky for him. May was no pushover at first tornadoes wanted to hire by his to appeal. The Odin Lloyd conviction. We'll Aaron wrote me when he was in jail, and he asserted his innocence after a conversation with them pretty much leave it out for him. And I said, listen, the olden Lloyd appeal is great, and you have some issues here. But it doesn't mean anything if you lose this Boston case. And if you lose his Boston cases coming next to impossible to get you out. So in February of two thousand seventeen Hernandez hired by his along.
