"Everybody so Man I wish I could spend four hours telling you all the craziness has happened since we last hung out. But I can't because right now I have to get back down to finish recording. The book short break now just wanted to shoot a quick episode but basically the last episode she has got was from Arizona at Tony and dean the mastermind dot com launch. And I had my brother ripped the my presentation of the end. Everybody got a lot of good feedback me as about that hopefully enjoyed that. But what's crazy? Is that night after we got done with Tony and Dean in Jenin? We JUMP BACK IN. A plane flew home and just in time to pass out three hours a week and it was noah's birthday which was so awesome. Celebrate a birthday playthrough they got some work done and then the next day or that night sorry it was at night then. I jumped in another plane. Flew OUT TO LA FOR TONY. Robins birthday party which was cool. Who Says Sixtieth Birthday Party and it was? I think there was basically eight different concerts. Like with the Ethridge and the dude that one person talent and pit bull and Andy Grammer. Who has seriously like thinking me him? She became best friends. He seems like the kind of guy would hang out with a bunch of other. Anyway it was amazing and then they raise money for. Oh you are and raise over. Eighteen million dollars for operation underground railroad was crazy Perez Hilton said to us which was like come on now Pearson. That was amazing. So anyway it was. The whole event was was awesome but then we flew back the next day and now I'm back here in the studio. Yes she actually fun. Time to work on the traffic secrets book funnel which was a lot of fun but anyway we're why should the yesterday because so many of you guys go out there and you launch a final and it doesn't work it doesn't work the way you expect it and then you get angry upset or you give up your walk away or whatever and I tell you behind the scenes because a lot of people don't know this is happening But I have a. I'm privy to what's happening in everybody's funnel with all the time but Last last year when we did the mastermind dot com launch. It was the biggest launch in internet marketing history. Which is crazy this year. I think two hundred fifty thousand people registered for the for the Webinar last year. This year we had four hundred and sixty thousand people so obviously our hopes are high. It's like this is going to be amazing. But it's also the fear of like how do you? How do you get lightening strike twice at the same time? You know two years in a row after it works so good the year before and so there's a lot of fear anxiety and there are a lot of moving pieces that made this launch different and difficult but launch happened. And I'm not gonNA BOO HOO because like for less than we already over eight figure. So it's it's crazy still charlie. The second biggest launch of all time but sometimes launch happened and chance kind of watch as Dean and his team and working on things and again. We're mostly would go and say oh like he didn't get it. We're happy dean. There's been stressing out like like what was wrong. Why isn't messaging during the Hooks? Where the angles? What are the feedback in obsessing over everything? I could see him in the comment section of the customers reading every single. Calm the the the ones from the live webinars reading while trying to figure out and tweak the message and change the message and tonight he's actually on live again based on all this data feedback on his Intel and going back and doing a whole new presentation with the tweaks and changes and he adjusted his justin emails adjusting the most tweaking changing tweaking. Changing all enroll times says happening real really fast and I think a lot of times the outside we think oh. These people have been doing it for a long time. They know they're doing and they just put it out there and just works but I think we don't understand is that people have been doing this long time. They understand the funnel audibles understand. Like it's not gonNa work the first time it's it's a constant evolution and change and tweaking and changing tweaking and changing and tweaking getting it until it's until it's perfectly. That's what makes them great. It's not that they know how to do it perfectly. It's that they know how quickly and so for you guys you're listening to this I want you to start learning. That skill start becoming okay with stress. Alabama launches dunes goes. I want her driving. Facebook is not converting. Well or whatever. It's like that's the game like the people who are best. The Game Aren't better at it than you. They are better iterating quickly and changing and tweaking looking at feedback from customers and from comments and from things are saying forget. How do I tweak this message? How do I change? It goes rerecord new webinar drainage do emails ads in your change anymore unless ads. That's the difference between being good and being great and so anyway. I just want to share that behind the scenes with you because most has ever see behind the scenes and so this hopefully give you a glimpse of what it looks like. It's funny I was talking to Dean Bantu weeks ago we were flying out somewhere and we're talking about when he wrote the millionaire millionaire says habits book and it took him almost two years before the book started selling two years. Most people would have given up after like a week or two. It's an two years of trying and testing and trying testing and try and he's like literally two years into it he'd record some add ons phone. They had a different message and sue that one hit. They sold a thousand books. That day is like. Oh my gosh. That's the message. People needed like now make sense and then it was like can only donkey Kong and then over the next three years. They sold five hundred thousand copies of the book because because they knew the message. They figured it out by doing the process so anyway. That's how the that's how the masters do with how they experts do you guys. It's not by being better a front despite iterating quickly and becoming okay with that and enjoying the process so I appreciate you guys. You're back in the booth and record the rest of the expert secrets book. Make sure you get the audio books when they are done. Otherwise this work on vein. Thanks guys appreciate you. In fact I ready.

"A terrible idea only seen movies where like you were casted like like the guy or the girl you cast is based on like when they were going to take their shirt off and the whole movie sucks? Yeah because you you did that. You know quite a few. I've seen other other movies where you know you start the movie. And you're like girls at attractive and then like twenty minutes and you're like yes so cool. I'm so down. This is incredible. I think that we we played way too much emphasis. This is on sex like way way too much. Pass the lead in the movie on the sex scene that needs to be the title of because because you know I know. That's not sexy very sexy idea but the truth is I have. I'm married right now. We got a baby. Another one come in and sex is awesome and it's just like not the biggest part of the thing right the Mo like it's one of the things and it's awesome. I'm not going to downplay. It's great but it's like in our society drive around Los Angeles with the billboard and stuff you'd think it was like ninety five percent of the relationship I was like. How good is it when you guys banging? That is not what good a relationship is right. It was like Oh my God sex's great also there's eighty percent probably ninety of like the rest of life like there's so many more things happening in life outside of whose sex with what's the sex how we doing it like. We just focused way too much on it. I think that's a very refreshing. Take on it and I think our listeners will really appreciate that because we have a lotta girls who feel a lot of pressure about literally just the sex aspect alone when dating or like how do I say. I'm not ready for that. Or that may be waiting for marriage or whatever the case is there so much Jamf Asus on sex and it's like when you get into a relationship that's not everything it's just part of it. It's a piece. Yeah Compete. I love the piece. It is not. It's so it's way smaller than we're we're led into interesting due to have that perspective because you both are people that that waited till later later in life to start doing that. Sure but I mean Beca also she was on the bachelor and she was still the version. That's why you have the perspectives. You lived so much life before you got into do that and get your brain all clogged up with all that nonsense. First of all I am very loosely. Did I take I wrote a song about like the card was so tattered by by the time that I got pulled it out is that what is that. I gave a talk that is maybe but I also so so there was still like lots of physics physical stuff occurring with relationships before and I think it's it makes it way more messy than it needs to be i. I still think I still think that right. Now we're in a time period where we put so much emphasis on sex As as like so what what our whole purpose in life is to be like sexually attractive and is like Oh my God. There's so much more to do here making sure that you look really really good with your shirt off like fine. There's nothing wrong with that but like Oh my God. There's a whole other side of life outside of who do you Wanna a sex with and are you attracting people and the sex scene in your movie like when you watch a movie. There's a hole in movie. There's a whole movie and I mean I as a guy I've done it too and it's horrible. You like you go the movie or it's like late and you're like showtime like. I'm GonNa Watch this whole movie to watch this movie because I'm pretty sure this girl at some point in this movie and what a sad sad way to watch a movie like sincerely you're watching the movie the whole time. You're like that's terrible dialogue. You got me because I'm pretty sure hurt. This is going to happen at some point. Like what a waste of time. Yeah I just think that there's like this because I used to be this way where I would I would have sex with somebody before you Necessarily was ready to because I felt like I needed to like keep him happy. Not I'm not saying I would have sex like out of my own like I. I was willing. It wasn't like chose. It was not a willing participant but I would do it before I was ready to just because I felt like. That's what I needed to do. And then I would end up being so hurt at at the end of it because I not only did not get commitment. which is what I wanted but then I gave all of myself to this person? So it's just like I think that there's when you're dating can get really a tricky because sometimes you're just not like an. I don't know where that came from and I don't know if I like grew that over time and I don't know like exactly what switched in me. It was actually. I think it was meeting Devan Franklin when I realized I was like in this perpetual pattern of pain like I was just like giving my body before my heart before he gave gave me his heart. You know and so I think there's just like I don't know when that shift comes for free like a lot of other women but I do think that's something that women struggle with like especially when they newly we started dating somebody. Yeah the progression of it you know I mean. I don't think you can get really puritanical in these conversations. Like not at all where I want how I want to go about it. I do think in general we just spend way too much time and energy and green so like when your wit when you're checking somebody out. That is a piece of I. Guess you know some people say like Oh man. I can't believe you got married without like testing that I and I was like like you know sure I can. I hear your point but I was pretty dragged to her and it's great today. I don't think that's the hard part to be honest like Do we work. Well together we fit well together. Can we can. We have tough conversations together. Is there honesty here are do. I like to do. Similar things that you like to thank live life the same. Did we like to live life. Are We complimentary. Yeah me and my extremely different. But we're complementary what do y'all different in O- or like the most most different so I love. I get filled up by being around a lot of people and my wife gets filled up by being alone. I we need alone so I like the older I get. I'm realizing myself like I need to be in a different city like pretty consistently the great the to do it. And she's like you're insane. I don't want that at all and so finding the balance I if I didn't have her I would just be like a a helium balloon. Got Caught and just like in the air does like flying around and if if she was left alone she would not be forced to come to Paris and Hang. Hang out with me so we're like a good cheek. She does it and she doesn't want to do it but then when she says she's like this is great so we she makes. She gives me a home and I get uh-huh both really sweet. Okay speaking of touring. I didn't want to talk about this because actually mark sent me your pollstar article. Aw I can't even tell you what this did to me inside when I read you okay. I don't WanNa read the whole thing. Can you give us the brief synopsis of this. Because I wanna read the whole thing so basically i. I've had women on tour before and this year for There's like a shakeup Bam members lab. Some new crew members came in a cool way to just like reset on some culture stuff and I brought in in all the women that were on my tour. There's five of them backup singers And some people in production stuff and I sat him down. I said like okay. Is there anything we can do. Better for women touring touring and they all gave me like cool answers and and then at the end of them giving like practical answers they look me in the eye and they're like no one's ever asked me this question before and I was like no one's ever asked you this question like getting very defensive in on their behalf like Getting up on my high horse and then I realized when I left them That I have been the head of like a touring company for eight years. And I've never asked this question to women right ages like Whoa. What the hell? Yeah I am so I decided like man if I think one of the good guys and I've never done this over eight years spray I need to write an article and try to reach out to the good guys like quote unquote guys. That think they're good yeah. That just won't even ask the opinion I don't know so we're pretty far off off on the baseline so I found two things. I found related because you posted about this article on your instagram. And you're like I don't want to come off like I'm high and mighty and that's like because I know you I know that that's like the complete opposite of what like this. Is You just wanting to like bring awareness to like. What's going on and like the answers that they gave were like we? We just want trash can with the lid on it you know. We have tampons that we throw away. And we don't want to wrap it in five thousand things of toilet paper. Put an inch into these little things that you can. These little adjustments is that you can make to make life on the road. More comfortable for women is so cool that you just even like that even thought of that and it's like I think what what comes down to for me is like you are man and we are women. We live life differently. Do so it's like yeah you push to make. It seem like it's not. Yeah it's different. It's different and I think the thing is it's not like you intentionally are trying to make life harder for women on tour at all like nobody's doing that like when you open this conversation it's like at the end of the day if we all just kind of learned or reached out to people that lived life the different way or maybe had were in a different religion or a different gender different sexual preference that we don't understand if we all just open that dialogue. Yeah the world would be such a better place. There's still just not you know we've made a lot of strides but it's still not an equality of men and women that we would hope there is yet right so what that means is if you're a guy and you're just you're in your day job you're working or wherever you are It's probably more set up towards you. It just is and so if if we all just agree that like it's equal and we just continue doing it the way that we're doing it then you have a little bit of an advantage if you don't ask ask the woman standing next to you like. Is there any do to make this better than what you're doing is you're just agreeing that it's equal main but it's not right so I dare any man to like look to the woman to your left and be like. Is there anything that I could do to make this better or more equal for you and most women won't be like Oh totally. I thought I just had to work double hard because because I didn't want to be annoying and I want to be difficult right right and you're a guy who's like most guys are good. We ask the question So most guys. If you look to your left you ask the woman like is there anything I can do for you and.

"Hey, Andy grammer here. And you're listening to the good parts podcast. Me. Don't leave the good. What a episode thirteen of the good parts. This episode features. Cal Sussman who is an incredible interviewer. He's interviewed everybody from like like presidents Jimmy Carter to Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson to Kobe Bryant, Dr Drey Amin Muhammad Ali who else did he say Will Smith just like the craziest high profile people. He's also just like an extreme liver of life. You know, sometimes you run into people, and you're like men you live harder and cooler and better than most. And so it was really really good to get the bottom of of what makes him tick. I think you're gonna dig it. I love this guy. I initially I originally heard him on Tim fares podcast, and I couldn't get enough of them. So we had the opportunity to we're doing like a swap here. So he he. Was on my podcast. I was on his podcast, and we're going to release them both at the same time. I'm releasing them both. So you can hear me on his, and and you can hear him a mind. And then he did the same on his podcast, which is awesome, which is called big questions with cali-. So please get into it bringing awesome. I for sure I'm going to be a much better interviewer after doing this one. And I missed you all over the break, and I'm excited to get back into this. So here it is good parts episode thirteen Calvin. I am so excited that you're here for many, different reasons. I am a huge huge fan of yours for anyone who does not know CAL's men as you're in for a real big treat, and for me personally as someone who doesn't know what the hell I'm doing interviewing people. I'm so excited. I just thrust myself into this and asking all my friends to come get into some of the deeper questions about life. And I can't think of a better person. You're you're you're this is episode twelve or thirteen. So you're about thirteen episodes late. Privy to start doing that. I feel like I'm right on right on. But I've I've done some research on you. And I wanna start the way that I've learned already just from before I met you which is you start with the heart. So before we can get into anything. I have a sixteen month old. Can you give me the best or an amazing memory of one of your toddler years with your with your kids? An amazing toddler memory. Oh, the earth moment. Oh, shit go. There would he got I so.

Wow. So my wife like this feels uncomfortable with like almost every doctor that she meets in the United States because their business. And so she says, you know, I think I should have midwives deliver the baby. And, you know, her feeling was that, you know, the midwives have the time, and they have the inclination to talk things out there women and their stand where doctors are like clinicians. Yeah.

"Hey, Andy grammer here. And you are listening to the good parts podcast. Tell me. Don't leave the good parts. Episode twelve with Rachel platinum. This girl is my musical sister. I've watched her meteoric rise. I was around before she wrote fight song. And then I remember hearing for the first time and being so excited for her and beyond that just beyond being there for each other success, we share the same manager for really long time. What's so lovely about? Rachel is that me and her will call each other from time to time and just check in on what it's like to be an artist because it's it can be really hard to be an artist, and it's nice to have others who are going through the same things as you are. So what I wanted on this specific podcast was to try and just see if I could create a space where we can have one of those phone calls except just record it. So that's what you're going to get in this next one you're going to get one of my best friends and the two of us talking about being an artist about song writing about self doubt about all the things that go along with with chasing dreams. So I think you will. Really really enjoy it. That's it get into it. She's one of my favorite people in the world. Rachel plan. Here. Friend. It's it's hard to even express how deep of love. I have for you. You are we you're like, my musical sister is what we talked about it. Yeah. We'll probably gonna cry. Your practice. So what I want to start with? There's like so many things I want you to be able to share with anyone listening. I mean, you you probably all know Rachel, but I know her as truly like my sister coming up in the music industry and one of the sweetest things. I thought of was how there's not anybody else that I would get with and play all of my shitty songs with isn't that such like a like a sweeping shared both having been through the Bensinger. Academy. Right. Where you just write so many songs to get to the good stuff. That means that there's a lot of really weird ones and to sit with you in a car and go back and forth playing. Our worst songs is like one of my favorite memories day outside of your house. Yeah. That was our first time doing that. So refreshing. So ready, you need friends that you can just just fully laugh with and let just let all your wards. Shush. Oh, yeah. It's really sweet. So I wanted to give people a sense of our little conversation because you're someone that will either call me or I'll call you for through last like, I don't know what if I six at six six years starting years probably like five times a year. We'll have like an hour or two hour conversation where we just try to support each other or just let the other one. No like, this is what it is. All the crap you're going through is totally totally normal. So true. Yeah. So I wrote down a couple that I don't remember talking about. But like I just want to pick your brain about. I would pick your brain about like, I would call you from call. So I would call you. And I'd be like man, I'm just dealing with fear right now. Like what he got? Oh my God. Just in general. I have so much experience with fear moving past it, especially this year is a really big zero of. I I think that like for pregnancy. It's hard to separate pregnancy and music they've all kind of mashed into one right now. But I had a really crazy experience last year that you know, all about I put out a record that I really loved and Andy kind of got me through it. You've kind of got me through this heartbreaking thing that was I put out striker that I really loved Ben. And I we shared a manager. We loved it. And my team loved it. And it just didn't do what we hoped. It would sure happens. My ego is so attached to doing what I thought it was going to do following, you know, success in an highs we've gone into this a lot to just the roller coaster finished story and instead of being excited about putting it out. Well, this is what I noticed was going wrong. I was terrified. I was like really really scared to release music because I was all this pressure. I didn't even realize I was putting it on myself. So I lost the joy of like creating and releasing music out into the world. And you helped me a lot with that of like, what are you doing? Why are you doing this? I don't know if you remember there was a really there was a tough one one day, I called you, and you just explained to me, it's really not yours anymore like make it. I know you have to just put it out and let it be free. And and it has nothing to do with you anymore. What people think, and we do think we control it. Oh my God. We think we have control over it. But we don't have no control over you. We think that like you write something, and you share it with someone in a couple of people tell you like that's really good and the shittiest art is always the art that you're like you've Taylor crafted because you think someone someone never but resonates, no, usually guys. But it's okay. It's okay. Okay. Take off this. So how did you get? What did you do? So I went through along good, by the way. Thank you. I love the record still. I went through a lot. I mean, I I know I I'm just in such a different place right now because my fear now is more related to like, can I do this can I birth this baby? Can I like go through labor? Can I be a mom? How do I do this all together? But last year I got through it by. Just accepting. You know, like what it was? And I don't know. I think I just I started trusting whatever you call it source God universe. I know everyone listening has a lot of different views in. I just started accepting a little bit more like that. There is goodness. That there is a plan. And that nothing that is happening to me is bad. You know, it's all for good entrusting that did help me except a little bit more. I don't know. I don't know if I'm totally threat because when I released a single recently about my baby, I little flashbacks of the fear. I was going on GM may and I was going to sing it, and I was going to be seven months pregnant, and I did have a little moments of light. Oh my God. What are going to people going to think again? But I quickly. I did. I do think I was done if I called you about if I was really proud because I did work through. It was like I was way faster comeback hit this time. And I checked myself, and I was like I'm going to enjoy this. I'm just going to have fun, and what people do with it and accept what they think of it. That's on them in. This is for my baby. And this is for me and my family, and I put out something I love, and that's good enough is good enough. Also, there's probably the love it. There are people. There are tons of people that love it late. So so we shooter like he can shoot yourself in the foot by only wanting a certain that was a very interesting thought is is the only art that is worth it the one that wins and the mess level. And when I think in my life, some art that I love like nobody knows about it. Yeah. That's a weird. It's so true. It's like I do hold myself to a standard that if a massive amount of people don't like something that I put out that it doesn't feel successful. But that's Bolsheviks. I should because especially the unit right? We right to heal things. We write to go through things I write to process things. So they're all teachers, they're all really important some of them. Okay. Clearly, some days you go into. It's just not not that real. Thank you, try and drugs muddled, and it's like you. We always. Art with the best intentions. I'm sure, but then it can get you just get getting your way. But even the songs that like if they're really honest, and they really like did something to help me get through of something I'm going

So I want to challenge you guys to first of all you believe that and second of all can you give an example of time that you had to get out of yourself and your pride especially where you're in a position where you can be givers all the time and accept help. Even though it challenged you. You think at the time. Yeah. So version, I mean, I think talked about one I mean just with Andy there were two times already. I think on this guys. I've talked about accepting the help. When he when I accepted, his when I when I cashed that five hundred dollar check that he gave me when I had nothing that was that was a big moment. 'cause I was like, you You know, know. because I had had I remember there was a time. When I even in my early twenties when I experienced success that I could have helped everybody, and then I did that's probably why my money went so fast. But accepting that help was huge. And then again the second time when I called him. And I was I'll never forget like when this girl had broken up with me. And which is kind of ridiculous now like it was just, you You know. know, he came over. And I remember he was crying because he just knew how heartbroken I was. And then it was like come sleep on my couch, and she's being in that position. And being so vulnerable knowing you have nowhere to live, and you don't even have the money to put like to have a down payment on an apartment. So like I was legit homeless. Save it for my friend. Andy grammer. Who also wasn't like a pretty crappy apartment. Like that was back when Andy was microwaving tuna fish. Which Asia he doesn't do that anymore. It doesn't move on. Okay. Okay. Okay. So. Yeah. So there's been so many times actually that I've accepted help when I've needed it. And I think that's another journey in masculinity as men being okay with accepting help. But I will say like Bernie Brown's incredible. I just don't know any person that I've never met that is always giving with a pure heart or accepting with pure heart. I don't know if it's physically human like beautiful, quote, and she's amazing. I think it's an amazing thing to aspire to. I just don't know any human being. That's currently like that I've met that is just like that ever one hundred percent pure in anything, and that's one of the beautiful things about being human. I think aspirational, absolutely. We should always attempt to be pure. But I can tell you right now that there's a lot of times when I give or I think I'm being pure, and then I think about it, and I talked myself out of it. And I go on my God that was so selfish. I'm an awful person. Like, I just help that person for me. I should stop doing it altogether. And then that's just dangerous place. The second we start questioning our purity, which I do believe we should do is just it's like a dangerous road. Because then you realize you're never just completely pure giving feels good for a reason God designed it that way for philanthropy feels amazing for a reason. Right. It's a reward that he built in to like a human like a so that we could just remind ourselves like, oh this good. I should do it more. I don't know anybody that's giving like whether it's helping somebody over the holidays or showing up to feed the homeless on skid row or just helping a friend in need that doesn't.

"January twenty six you have too many volunteers ready. No, yes. But that's totally. Okay. Okay. Everybody's welcome. Everybody's welcome sign up. So let's talk about it. I four tell them that. So the carnival of love is a day of human kindness is your birthday. It was started around start around birthday. The true story is that the carnival of love would not exist. If it were not for my friendship with Andy grammer. So the thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people over the last five years would they would have not been helped and seen and heard in love had it not been for you. Because one day you decided on your birthday to make food for the homeless, and you invite all of us over, and then we made and then you pass them out. And I thought that's it. That's what I've been wanting to do forever that was like twelve years ago. So you should McDonald's. Remember that? Yeah. And then we all made all these support. So we these like really cheap to Ralph's and got like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and telling just about it. And just like, oh my God. Totally. So then Justin shows up with bad ass. Mcdonald's. Like a bunch of everybody. We it was like. If dollar dollar menu crazy at McDonald's, that's another. That's the first level of wealth. When you're really poor. Then you get to go to like a Taco Bell or McDonalds, and you go to everybody like, it, whatever you want. So true. But but I remember that moment because I was one for birthdays. I was always felt uncomfortable saying come celebrate me. And it was like it clicked this. It was like you doing that. Is it opened up my eyes, and I went that's it. That's me. That's exactly what I need to do. That's what I wanna do from now on. And so every year I started doing it. And I started inviting friends and turned into a bigger thing and a big thing and thirty people and forty people and people and then when Jane the virgin happen knowing kind of the way that Hollywood works like this perceived idea of coolness based on whether or not you're on a show, or you have followers or a celebrity. I said, well, why don't we try and experiment and see if we can use it to get people to show up to skid row. So we created this carnival. I was like what did we through a carnival carnivals are generally things that come to pretty like middle American towns to like give them a day of like forgetting that life is hard. And you know, you eat really shitty food and like go on go on things that make you then throw up the shitty food. And I was like well what we could do better. So we created this carnival. And the idea was really like this kind of group think effort where okay, let's get as many people as we can to show up. Bring close bring food bring high hygiene products bring books bring anything that. You don't need in your life anymore. Bring it, but that's not gonna change anything. What's going to change? Things are the way you interact with the person you give it to. So we thought let's create a day where it's just, you know, all of us are going to see we're gonna hear we're gonna love on these people that are so often forgotten do behind the by faith. He says tell the rich of the midnight sign of the poor. And it was such a profound thing. Like here. We are in the hotel. Cafe we're all doing, okay. But like just a few blocks away and even outside. There are people that have nothing that at night when we're being on our beds are sighing because they just are struggling with addiction. Whether they're on the street for because of their own choice or whether it's because they don't have anybody else. They were born that way. And it's perpetual. So we thought if we can just love people than that could be like the other part of a solution. You know, politics aside like you gotta fix things through legislating you need enough housing for the homeless number one. But they also need to be seen in they need to be loved. So that first year was an experiment. It was awesome. And then it grew and grew and grew and as my like dealer celebrity grew so did the carnival. And and now it's become this pretty incredible thing where we had like last year we had one hundred and.

"First of all, we just got this nine Huckle is the sign. I'm like really excited about the sign. Hey, man. How are you? Hey, dude. I feel like we're really good friends. But I haven't had a good long chat with you. And we're ships passing in the night. This is really nice sit down with you. There's so many things I want anybody who's this podcast to take from you. And I wanna start with my last days because that when when we were roommates that was like the thing that really think shifted some stuff for you. Yeah. I hold on. I want to take it back one second. Okay. How cool is it that we were roommates and like homeys and struggled like all of the exact same time. Yes. And and there's a moment. Even the fact that there's more than three people here. Like wanted to come. There was a little bit of a line. You texted you text text ten thousand people, but somehow you do anyways. But how crazy is it that like we could even like people even care what it's unbelievable. One of the things that Justin did for me. He was one of the first guys I met when I moved to Hollywood. And he he was on his show. And he was like he looks like a movie star. He always did. So I get down, and I have this friend now, and we were running. He was trying to teach me how to work out, whatever. And we're on treadmills. And he looked me in the I remember this you probably even remember saying this. He looked at me. I had nothing going on like I was street performing we're now. I remember we right here. Twenty five I was stupid for me. I was like slinging CDs on the street. Trying my hardest and I there wasn't a lot of prospect in my future at the moment. And this cool guy from Hollywood look me in the eye. And he goes like if I could buy stock in you. I would. Dude. I feel the I to this. Oh, I was like oh my God. I need that. So bad right now. Thank you. So very few that I've ever believed in as much as I believe in Andy grammer and eve anyway, and I think that's the most important thing about like, really good friends. Is that even when you can't see yourself? They see they see you. They remind you of your purpose. So I saw okay. So you were you had been on everwood, and you had this kind of like rise. And then you had this moment and immediate drugs like. Only when you're close you gotta drought. And I was with you through it. And I remember you like kind of creating this idea of my last as out of it. And it was something that you've been banging on the door the acting door for while. And it wasn't opening the way you wanted it to and you just decided to go the directing route. What what do you remember how that came to you?

"How did some survive the death camps and some didn't? And obviously the point is that the ones who found a purpose where able to bring a meaning to the devastation. We're the ones who are able to endure. And so I think the meaning of life is is the meaning that you have to create and bring to each scenario. So for example, and Frank's father found her diary and made it his mission to get it published and look at changed the world the rest of them died her all her siblings or mother all of them died except him. And I mean, John Walsh. I don't know if you know that. Story. He was the father of Adam Walsh Deng boy, who was brutally murdered. And he started something called America's most wanted. It was the longest running show on FOX. And he put the houses of rapists, child molesters murderers behind bars with that show because he took these tragedies that we think would destroy us. Right. Like just ruinous, and they gave it a meaning to go on. And so that that tragedy in one way or another would endure, and it would bring a wisdom more a death or an entity or a love into the world that wasn't there before. And so I think whether it's your your do Gooding that brings the wisdom, the depth, and the empathy or your tragedies that bring it neither way. It's what's going to give it meaning for you. And then how your meaning will affect the rest of the world. So it's it's got to be your own purpose. That's kind of uniquely yours. I love you. Awesome. Thank you so much. I feel like Oprah. Kreil Andy for president Oprah. There you have it Jillian Michaels. She's on believable, man. I really enjoyed spending time with her and hope you enjoyed it too.

"Parts. Podcast episode, eight, this good one. I'm coming at you directly from the back of a tour bus. The back lounger tour bus right now that actually doesn't have the generator on. I'm waiting for someone to come tournament tour bus back on figures v. time to do the trout. Once again, I was like, say, we're out on tour, so please come stay with the. We're probably coming to a city near you. We're gonna be out on tour probably through the first two weeks in over and it's been a really great one. So I love you. This week is need to breathe God. These guys are good. So there's more members of the band, but only the two brothers came came over to my house. They were playing the Greek theater in Los Angeles. This band is like quietly, the biggest band that you'd never that you either have or haven't heard if you've heard of them and you've been to show you're like, oh, of course they're huge. If you haven't heard of Nita breathe, they sell out like crazy, crazy places, ten thousand twelve thousand tickets, frigging nuts. So they were playing the Greek theater in Los. Angeles, and they were nice enough to come by my house, and I'm pretty sure Louise extra loud in this one. She needed a snack and she made it known and we're record. This is kinda near the kitchen, so she's not allowed to get snacks anymore after episode eight, but a man. So we get into things like these dudes, they're incredible, but they have some intense troubles, just it being in a band. I mean, every band has troubles, but when you're brother's, I'm sure we talk about it. It gets extra crazy. So we talk about like a fist fight they had and how that reorganized the way that they kind of went about their business in their days and being brothers, which was really, really interesting. They're both really soulful kind of eloquent individuals. So the conversation was amazing, an enlightening as always and I love you guys and we will see soon.

"Hey, Andy grammer here and you are listening to the good parts podcast. Xiaomi. Don't leave the good parts. All right. So last time I asked you send in a bunch of different ideas of what I should call you, and we got the Graham's got good particles which I don't understand, but appreciate your doozy Hasim someone said the goodies, Mike goodies. That's got some vibe to it, what my fellow goodies. I think that's my favorite this week. We have oversight of all tour started frigging awesome. Last night was Tampa. Amazing show. You know, it's funny. I do this thing where for VIP people very important people, hilarious, whatever they get there early and I sing a couple of songs that I also get to had. They asked me questions and what it wasn't expecting was that during question time, everybody was asking me the questions that I ask all my guests and it was like it was funny to be on the other end of it, and there was a whole room of people and they're like, so what's your most brutal though? Crap. This whole thing has realize what I'm doing everybody and it's wonderful. So I approach. It it. It's just so fun to be out on tour in meeting people who are loving this podcast. So thank you for that. Okay. Today we have Lewis house is, dude is an incredible guy I went. I talk about in the podcast. I did his podcast a while ago and he was so sincere in frigging present in just a guy that I wanna be like, we talk about a couple of his books. He got one about all about being a man, and we get into that heavy, which is awesome. You're going to really, really did podcast. I love you guys and. Did. Yes. Such a pleasure to be here. Thank you for having iceman for coming on on mine and we're actually doing it in your spot. This is right is every issue. You know, it's so cool is when I came on your podcast, the thing that struck me like we had a really good conversation and the end of it. You look me directly in the eye and you do your thing. I don't know exactly what it was, but it was like, I just want to appreciate you knowledge, acknowledgement. And I remember sitting here having been on so many interviews or shows and stuff like that and being like, whoa, I feel you sincerely right now, and it makes comfortable number one. Yeah, right. I'm not sure why a little uncomfortable and also feels real real good. And and then you just became in that moment like a friend of mine. Yeah, that's a superpower, dude. Yeah. Yeah. Can you have you always had that? I have when I realized that I was very insecure growing up the I didn't have the skills in school, and I didn't really have many friends growing up. Actually, there was a moment when I was about seven where I didn't have any friends in two kids had a little club in like. Parents basement or whatever that they would have people over and do whatever kids do their little clubs and I want to join. But they said you either have to answer a couple of questions to get in the club or there's an entry fee just like five dollars at the time. And I said, okay, what are the questions? And I didn't know the answers and made me feel really stupid that I didn't know these answers. I think one was like, who is who's been on the moon name? Someone who's been on the moon, and I was like, I don't know. I'm seven years old. Right? And there's a couple of the questions I don't remember. And so I went home to my mom's and Astra for money, so I could have friends, and I remember that moment on, I went back and gave them the money, so I could like hang out with him for the day, and it was one of the most embarrassing like moments after that. I never went back after that to the clobber or hung out with them. 'cause I'm like, what am I doing? I'd rather be alone than if the pay people to be my friend and I think my tire childhood, you know, my brother went to prison when I was eight until I was twelve. And so that Scituate. Ration- being in the suburban Ohio, not many like white suburban kids had a family member's going to prison at the time. So I was really the only one who had a family member prison and then the neighborhood kids, parents warn allowed them their kids to spend time with. So it's just like a one after another. I couldn't read in school at a second grade reading level when I was in eighth grade as well. So school was just always a challenge. Me very insecure and I never felt like I was good enough with with the smarts with the schooling with the books with education. And so when I got to high school, I became a student of people. I said, I need to master understanding people to see if people can hang out with me because literally it was like, what do I get to do? So I'm not alone all the time, and I realized quickly that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care and the more we care about someone, the more they want to spend time with us, and no one wants to spend time with the guy who has all the answers. If he's a jerk and you know late to everything and cares only about himself and he has to speak all the time, but we really care about the one who's interested in us the most who is curious about us who wants to know more about our story will always share our story with someone. And if we feel heard than we feel like we feel connected. And so my superpower became becoming a great listener and showing compassion towards all human beings and being able to relate to people from all walks of life. Just like you've traveled the world performing around people and seeing all walks of life, and you've probably gain compassion for people and had different perspective because of the places you've seen the people you've been around. The challenges they've been through and my whole mission has been to come from place of understanding other human beings and at the core, what we want the most like what I wanted the most was a kid was to be seen and heard, and I felt like I didn't have that and. We want ackknowledgement. That's why I am long story to finish up. There know the reason I end with acknowledgement on my podcast because I never saw any place any interviews series on TV or video or podcast where someone was knowledge ING, their guest in that format. And I was like, I'm going to do things differently. You know, my skill may not be that I'm the best speaker or have like the most insights about something, but I can have the most compassionate acknowledged people. And it's always interesting to watch people when I knocked him. Because like you said, it gets very uncomfortable because we're not used to or not. We're not used to feeling acknowledge like that in an intimate vulnerable way of dudes. Exactly. We're not used to it and a lot of people like can't receive it, which is funny. But then what I notices that I've just created so many great friendships and relationships with the individuals of hat on, even if I've only met them for an hour. Most interviews you've done, you probably don't hang out with the people of interviewed you afterwards. You've done tons of press towards not spending time with them if you people, but my goal is at everyone that comes on, I build a relationship with so I can continue to serve them

"Hey, Andy grammer here and you are listening to the good parts podcast. Xiaomi. Don't leave good words. Ladies and gentlemen. Last episode I asked, we need a name for what we are. I got a lot of the good people, and that's just not good. That's bad. I'm not gonna say that why we are striving, but we cannot just come out and say, I can't start this episode being like what a good people. I need better options in that pleased. Good parts as bad to help me out internet. Let's do this. You've been tasked with way harder questions. So hit me with a direct message OMB as Graham with something we should be called, please God help me. We got Tori Kelly, holy shit. She's good. And this album that she just dropped is guys. I talk about the episode. She made me cry. I don't know how many people go on your list of albums will listen to actual tears. Come out of your eyes, but I- reverence the track in this intro that leads into her to the beginning of sewed. I'm gonna put this song that I was riding like five AM to the airport. I was just listening to this record before because about interviewer and I swear to God. I just. Started crying. If you don't do anything reser life. Go, listen to this song. It's called soul anthem. It freaking got me and we'll get into her. Also we have to be on tour freaking come. It's gonna be awesome. Tornadoes are September twenty eight to November fourteenth. Please coming out as being a band, throw aggressively, optimistic show that will leave you smiling and get you moving at. It's just it's my favorite thing in life. This is my still becoming one of things by awesome, but coming and rocking at a live show. That is my favorite favorite thing when we're times September twenty eighth when it starts, ends, November fourteenth, go checkout. Andy grammer dot com. For tickets and info. I love you guys. Let this week sweet song bring you in slowly to my conversation with Tori Kelly. Me how to love him. Show me how to trucks. With my words. No, not any. Down on mine. But with Fay Thad, no. List. Fierce. It is. Pay say, oh, are we starting? Oh wow, those so fluid. Okay. Start by telling you that you now are one of the artists that has made me ball my eyes out. It happened because I've listened to record. It's all mazing eight is stupid. Stunning. Yes. Yes. They're all really, really good. I want to get into all of it. But thou one I was on an airport I had to, you know, fly like six AM driving the don't get scared by these. I'm trying to report and that's on comes on like. Like just, oh my God. Happening, and so so so record. Record is so good. Sometimes I forget. I want intro you like this. Okay. Here just get ready to take a compliment. I don't know how you do that. Good at that. I'm bad at that. Just get ready. So we were, we played a couple of shows together, but I think it was somewhere in like North Carolina, and I was like a radio show and I'm watching from side stage and you're doing your Tori thing. I remember going back in sitting backstage before on and being like, I am genuinely happy. It's rarely see someone that I'm proud that our crew our generation has someone that sings like that. Sincerely I sat had quiet more myself where I was like, I'm so happy that we have some have one like her. Is unreal your voices. And this record is insane. I'm just very, very excited. I've heard the whole thing many times which is unaccompanied its own thing in two thousand eighteen all the way through. Right, right. So get just get into why. Why make a gospel record. Well, yes, it is a gospel record. If people don't know, feel the need to say that us record and it's it's been a huge passion of mine. I grew up listening to gospel. That's like when I think of learning how to sing, like I think of gospel music. So it's just kind of like embedded into me and just just the genre as a whole. Now, on top of that, just I mean, my faith in what what they're singing about in gospel music. That's that's been a big part of my life as well. So for me, it was it started out as like, okay, what if I just did like a gospel song? I mean, I remember listening like Mariah Carey's done it. She threw a gospel song at the end. Yes, she has a song called fly like a bird that I loved, and I was like, what like she can do it like, I'm I'm so down. So that kind of opened up a little door and then like Destiny's Child did it. A gospel medley. So I just little seeds were kind of planted. And then when I was writing the last couple years, I've been writing for other stuff and and I, I've kind of threw it out to my team. I was like, what if we just put a gospel song at the end of the album and and they were actually down like I, I was a little surprised. They're they're excited and scooter manager. He's he's the one who's like, you know, you should. You should hit up Kirk Franklin, like we should. If we're going to gospel like we should go to Kirk Franklin, and I was like, okay, no big deal. Like casual. I've I grew up listening to to Kirk in. I mean, as as I think a lot of people did and he's just like the king of gospel in my mind. So as like, okay, sure. And so he he was down to work with me, which was amazing and I flew out to Dallas. He convinced me to go to Dallas because he was like, if you want a real. Gospel record. You gotta come to the south. Yeah, is like if you want that southern like stink, then you'd better go down here. I was like, okay, fine. And I'm an l. a.'s and like communities come out here, fine. And he convinced meals like, okay, yeah, I want it to the authentic, you know, and and get all all the players that are out there. So I went and basically one song or what I thought was going to do one song. Well, it will was the for. What happened was I, I went down there and he played. He had four songs written already, which I wasn't expecting and he, he just played them for me. And I was like, oh, wow, these are like, these are incredible. I believe everything. I don't. Yeah. Which super rare for me. Like I, I actually get a little uncomfortable if I don't get to right now on a song. So for him to play me these songs I was, I was just like, oh, these sound like me like, it sounds like I was a part of this. It sounds like I, I wanna sing these. They're just they're amazing in. So we kinda started slowly recording some and I'm still thinking like, okay, maybe this'll be just a couple gospel song sprinkled somehow. I didn't know how it's going to come out, but we had so much fun like working together that that same trip I ended up. I asked him. I was like, hey, do you wanna like right together? And I found out he he hasn't ever co written with anybody before as I was, I call right, and we wrote never alone and all to say the basically what was supposed to be one or. Or two songs turned into like a whole project very quickly just because we just had so much fun working together and it everything just felt so good. And you know, I, I wanted all the songs to come out. I didn't want to choose a couple and try to squeeze him into the other album out, like, let's just, let's just put it out. This is do it. Was there any hesitation from you'd put out a like a gospel in internally or no? I try to walk the line as well of like, I'm just always nervous. Yeah, and everybody else that I've done this podcast. I've talked about it too much. I'm just nervous that you think whoever your ears, whoever the ears are that I'm trying to manipulate you to feel something. And sometimes when it comes to like religious stuff, I just don't want to turn you off that way. Yeah, and I- hearing this record from you. It doesn't happen at all. It just feels the best ever. Thank you and so that. So I'm like, I think some too much people. Please. Did you have this feelings or. No? Yeah, it it cross your mind if you times. Yeah, and I get nervous to put out anything. So I mean, so. Yes. So naturally, I mean, I I was like, oh my gosh. Is this going to be taken in a weird way? Like and I I wanted to, I mean, you think of like marketing and everything like you can have the songs, but then it's like, okay, how are we going to roll this out and what's what's it gonna look like in? So yeah, there's there's element to think trusting my team who was really excited about in that help to lock their their super supportive. Think if I was like, you know, having to fight against things and having, you

Bonner Virginia, moose keys is the referral diva still want to be called the referral deviate. If we change everything else about your business set fans up. Okay. We're not changing everything about my business for changing everything. So it's like in my business. Okay. Well, cool. Well, she teaches each six figures solar nor how to build businesses that fueled their passion. I mean, that's cool. Is that to be able to actually build a business that's making six figures and that you love doing? And it's like a a really hard driven heartfelt business. If this is you nice guy community, and if you are not in the six figure space, you need to listen up. If you are in the six figure space, you totally need to listen up because Virginia is the shit you're going to get to know her even more now having massive impact on and in your communities where she wants to be with ever thirty years of teaching training and business building experience. Virginia as definitely demonstrated the how To's of leveraging social impact and social capital fast and right now. So she has been the chief connections officer at master connectors ink, and then executive director of two franchises in the BNI whilst the that would be the not the Baltimore networking international business network international Virginia coaches, fourteen hunting really is fourteen hundred entrepreneurs, holy shit, really Addy find all of them row. I have a team and she's got a big time. She Bill builds business using word of mouth, best pack practices, and she hosts a podcast inter free time when is free time and best off, I'm proud to call her my friend, welcome Virginia. That was the most lame. As long as introduction I've ever heard. But you're here. So let's just get it started. I'm here, so let's do it. I love it. I love it. So tell me why I hate networking so much, and while you're so good at it, why do you hate networking? Well, why do don't allow to say to somebody say to somebody. Going to a networking meeting and or I'm going to networking armed going to even somebody might say, and I'm gonna say this directly to you since you're since you're majorly involved with BNI God, one of those things come on seriously. I really need to go to that and use it, and I'm and I'm saying that with all the love in my heart, but what, what do you say in return to somebody that says something like that. Melik it just it isn't really for everybody. What I do isn't for everybody. I mean, some people prefer SEO some people like using social media and some people like using funnels, and it just depends on who you are as a person and what it is that you want to accomplish. So let me just start here. Why would you want to do something like the an eye or something like the the programs, my coaching programs, like my referrals on demand program or my referral alliance program? Well, here's a thing. So most people run what I call referral algorithms and it looks like this, you say my back hurts. Do you know a good chiropractor? And I say, yes, my chiropractor Dr. Crystal, should I have her call you? And you say why? Yes, Virginia, thank you. And I called Krystal and I say, call Doug. Right? So that's what most people do if they're even remotely good at referring. Actually, what most people do is they play business card poker, they run. Around throwing their business cards around and then hope and pray that maybe somebody calls them everything that they collect, they like put on their autoresponder, start spamming everybody right and left. And that's really a relationship BUSTER in nobody is going to do business. And I think that that's what's given networking such a bad name, but but it's the rarity. It's the rare exception where somebody says my back hurts, and then I say, while great, I have a great chiropractor. Her name is Dr. Deb, let would you like me to get her to call you. I mean, it never goes to that. It always gets goes to all. Here's her name and number check her out, you know. And that's like one step short of its once better than than a cold call, but it's but it's at the same time. It's like now you're letting letting the behavior of the person that you're giving the referral to all the power. And I hate right because they never do anything. Right. Well, there's one step even below that, right? Which is all really care about your damn back. Doug, you wanna buy my life insurance. Oh, I got it. So you aren't there for the chiropractor. You were actually there to sell life insurance, and I'm here to sell life and I'm a life insurance and you're saying my back hurts Dino. Good chiropractor and I'm like, no, but t needs some long term care. What sucks

They do this amazing thing on fourth of July. I think it is where it's like a huge. I don't know the number bosses at town that really supports their orchestra. Yeah, really appreciated them in and support one hundred piece orchestra and they're employed year round. You know, classical musicians employees year round. That's a major image. So we ran into each other there, but we're also on the same record label s curve anyway, we, we pass each other a lot, and I just want to get a little bit. I wanna spend an hour just like getting to know you little bit. I have some really quick questions other Thanksgiving Day parade. Yeah, that was really cool. Was so fun. Most importantly, Sunfire. What's your take? Right? There's this thing out in LA where they bring you low carb meals. They drop it off at your door and it tastes. On a scale of one to ten, I'd give it like a four which is not bad. If what you're trying to do is just lose weight. This one making me feel bad about myself that I'm not doing and gave up and it's really time for me to go back. This one's like I, I rate them, I rate them like a six, you know? But it's but and that's listen. I've been on it for months. I, it's not like them. You know, some five star restaurant food, but it tastes good and it does what it's supposed to do, but it's, you know, with our schedules, it's this general upkeep you got something off. It's really generally. I started. I started, you know, when I was trying to work for something and then leaving, yes, started when I was in Hamilton. I started the meal plan when I was in Hamilton and just to make sure that I was eating at all because I would go a whole day busy now it's just forget to eat yet. And so, yeah, then after leaving the show I gained a bunch of way, what's your yoyo line is a solid, ten or fifteen? Mine was like. Nineteen twenty five thirty pounds. Yeah. How what did you do just like getting ready for the baby to come and you know just what's your thing though? Is that like carves Swiss trouble what we'd be after this? There's a place called Donut friend right down the street. So your son? Fair. Okay. And then we can get married my different. Yeah. I was going to ask you about, you've done a bunch of different modes of art and what what's the most tax i. priority. I feel like or is between touring musician. Cedar and then movie. What? What? What is which, what are the like? Explain those for me. Right. So take what one by one. And which one is the easiest on you on? Just Leslie? Not like the star just like the human. Who good question. I mean, you know, they're the my. My favorite thing about this career that I've sort of been able to, you know, hack away at and sort of carve out a lane for myself as I really like the the diversity of it, I really liked bouncing around so that you don't get bored and so that you don't get, you know, so that each one stays fun because they all are a lot of fun. But then after while the all taxing all impacting in a different way. And because we love this because this is passion, you kind of feel a little guilt right when it when it starts to book when you start to dread it or get comes drag a little bit and it's like, I used to love this thing, you know? So that's when it's really great to take a break because I've even added, you know, like I did. I wrote a book that she thought about that too. That's fascinating. I, you know, I done a couple of, you know, the hardest thing of all of the stuff is. Reading

"Andy grammer here, you may know me as recording artists and touring musician. So why? Why am I doing podcasts? Basically? I just love getting into people's personal stories. What makes them who they are? What's their relationship to the weirdest questions about being alive? Like, why are we here was the purpose of life where we go when we die, is there a God? These are all very important questions that very rarely get asked, especially if you want to ask those types of questions and you want a real answer, you have to create a zone where that can even possibly the truth can come out. So that's what this is. This is the good parts podcast. This is where we take an hour to go in to the hard talk about, but to me most interesting parts of life. So I'm very lucky to get to do what I do, and I come across incredibly inspiring people, and I'm so blown away at how many of them were willing to come get into it with me. So that's what this is.
