"That is unusual. I can hit it on an emotional funny Every level possible I can. I can connect with his audience and have them come up afterwards and then tell me their story and seeing how it relates to mind. They weren't strippers but different. Things happen to them up in the same emotion as me. Yes you see. That's the thing. The emotion we both brought out of two different circumstances was the same absolutely absolutely absolutely and as human beings again whether we can relate to each person's individual circumstances or not is fundamentally irrelevant because as human beings whatever our individual circumstances are we all know what it needs to be on the spectrum of feeling everything under the Sun Right. So you know you're right. Everything is about feeling feeling is is then you know brought on by energy and and and what we feel about ourselves and therefore based upon how we feel about ourselves how then do we do the rest of the world because there is a huge correlation to that and for people to say that. There's not it's ridiculous you absolutely marcus. Being cognizant of time I want to give you the opportunity to plug the listening audience into the podcast subscribers. Where can people seek you out for an initial consultation? Where can people Book you for a speaking Gig. Where can people buy your book Is there any book signings coming up like whatever you can tell us? That's forecast is on the calendar where people can connect with you or watch or see you or listen to you. I'd love to hear that okay. Well depending on where they are. I'm I'm all over the place. So it's kind of like you just basically have to take a look in on my website. Which IS MARCUS RATE TALKS DOT COM And you can get all your information there. The new website is just going up in the next couple of days. I'm very excited about that. He had a phone and the book is available on Amazon Dot com or Amazon DOT CA. Now I want to give a warning with this book. I like to give a warning. I have told the truth which means this book is not for. Everybody I didn't hold any punches. I I I took certain circumstances that happened to me over those seven years and I put them in that book and even originally when I did it And the people that were going to make the do the book publishing they came back and said wow it seems like you almost say something and then you don't say it and while. I'm trying to be careful with my wording day assigned a professional writer to me and he made me put everything in their beautiful. Yeah beautiful for everybody else. Exempt me because there's some crazy stuff in that book and that's why I say it's not for everybody and it's funny because at I almost prefer people meet me before. They read the book because when they read the book they get an impression of that person And that's not me that used to be me But as I explained to my family I wrote the book the book would be that guy over there sprite. That's not me anymore. That's that guy in that book so it's quite what I will say to that. Though is you know if people wanna be regarded as intelligent and they WANNA be given credit for being critical thinkers. Then they've got to take stock of that they're going to take onus of that themselves right. You can't spoon feed. Everybody and people will understand that. The book was premised on different times in your life who doesn't grow from different aspects of what transpired. Inner lives even yesterday or a week ago or six months ago or a year ago so if people are going to disillusion themselves by reading the book before they perhaps have the chance to meet you and think that that's the end all be all that you haven't evolved. That's on them. Mark guests while you can't you can't have a book like that not grow or die you're just grow or dying right. Yeah Anyway. It's available on Amazon. As far as bookings I'm going to be in Vegas for today's I think that's on the February. Twenty second and twenty third. I'll be going over to Miami after that. I don't have my dates yet. I am going to be in Vancouver. Bc At the Justice Institute of all places In their theater and that is on the thirteenth of February brilliant. Brilliant while. Listen Marcus again. Being cognizant of time we unfortunately have to wrap up. But that's not to say for somebody like yourself who's Ca- continuously committed to rapid growth and momentum and always having updates. You're always welcome to come back to living with Lisa McDonald. Truly you are It's been an honor. It's been a privileged. I think you're dynamic. I think your truly stepping into your power and I think you're providing a wonderful service to the collective by sewing everybody for having demonstrated so yourself that it's embrace yourself south love you know. Don't hide behind it. Tear down the mask. Tear down the walls. There's no need for facade.

"anthony ray" Discussed on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald

"The Universe was based off the number two. And there's Day but we make noon right black there's white but we make great right so I I just looked at life that way I think. Why do we keep making the third thing when when when everything is just very basic And we've just made everything so complicated that we can't live and what we've created Very true now for people who are listening in Marcus they would think OK. Well if anybody take stage and bear all there's probably nothing left that could make this guy feels somewhat fearful but let's talk about the real news because although my brand and everything I stand for is based and premised on living fearlessly. It's not that fear doesn't exist. It's how you over comment. And how quickly you step into overcoming it so for people who might be of the belief that there's nothing that maybe trips you up to today or makes you feel a little bit conscientious or makes you feel a little bit. Nerve wracked what would you say to that? What is something that causes you trepidation or something that you do have to combativity overcome? I can tell you very easily that I pushed myself extremely hard as you. Well know since we first met. You can see how hard on push myself. I am absolutely scared shitless of of failure. Okay let's talk about failure. Hell Outta me okay. Let's talk about failure because some people who are in the personal growth personal development industry. They don't like to look upon things or make reference to things as failure per se. They they would rather is oprah being example. She talks about no. It's just a MISSTEP. You know it. It's a lesson and once you learn the lesson then you know how to pivot differently so some people talk about you. Know FAILS FAIL FAST. Fail QUICKLY BILL FORD. Other people save failure on its own does not exist. It's really just an it's it's a lesson that needs to be embraced in moving forward. So how do you define failure? I define failure when I lose the will to succeed. Okay all right I get that. And based on that description in that definition I would be inclined to believe a or agree with you saw. That's the one thing I fear is losing. That will challenge the way I'd push okay and so is that being is that being For that being your definition or example of where you would steal a sense of fear. Does that motivate and inspire you to the point where you don't even allow yourself to feel that emotion because if you do then that's indicative of the fact that you're starting to give up or you're not executing the way you should if you do have true willpower and fortitude and resiliency tenacity. So how do you keep your south abreast of that? I keep moving. I get up at four thirty in the morning and I move Right I can't even let myself go to that place where I might enter self-doubt Fantastico I don't I don't let it happen so On honestly I fear the day it may happen but but I won't let it happen so he can understand that it's that it's that fear of not accomplishing what. I need to do on this planet before I leave. That makes me go and do it fearful so I will not stop doing it because the as I as as I said the the fear of losing the desire and the will to push Is is migrates fear. I don't want to lose that. Well all my life not lose that well and I think because you've honed that muscle on because you have made that a non negotiable choice for yourself. I don't think you my friend have any issues in that department. I don't think that's something that you ever have to worry about defaulting to. I don't think that's going to be an issue for you whatsoever but I do want to say that. It's very important that although you're cognizant of that and that being always at the forefront which keeps you on the straight narrow on the path of where you want to go a need to continuously go. It's very important because what you put your attention on dozen fact grow stronger and that can work for D. intuitive and it can work for the counter intuitive it can work for the positive and it can alternatively work for the negative so it's very important that although we keep things in our mind as benchmarks of where not to digress. And we're only to proceed. Go forward to make advancements that we don't create a self fulfilling prophecy for ourselves by putting too much attention on the things that are not going to serve. Us. I mean how many people really want to achieve something. I need a lot of these people at my seminars. How many people really want to achieve something? And then they'll they'll get hyped in front of you they'll get hijacked your show everything else and the next morning they'll get up they'll turn the TV on and they won't move now that's a shame because they felt like to want the desire and then the desires gone by the next day And they fear being somebody like I don't want to ever be that. And what do you attribute that to that type of our son? I attribute that to real life getting in the way I attribute that to. They look at their lives because I talked to a lot of these people now. They look at their lives and they've got emotional impressions pushed upon them. If we can get into this really quickly. Please do okay the way that I see it is. We all have the history. You have history of history in my history. I had emotional markers these are impressions at certain scenes in my life that stock And they didn't they didn't move Now I tell my audience. Imagine your life a movie reel now. The movie is moving but now one of the frames got stuck But the rest of the movie keeps playing so now. It's playing over top of one of the frames. So everything's a little blurry. Nfl Iran you get another one then you get another one then you get mad marriage. That's another one and all sorts of things keep happening in your life. Now you've got six or seven frames start but the rest of your life movies playing over talk. All Blurry is your future. Exactly those are the people that cannot get up and get going because they can't see what's ahead because they keep looking at where they've been and it's right in front of him so the way that I it unless you clear those emotional blocks. It's very hard for you to get the same kind of attitude that let's say you and I have Put forwarded life and keep pushing because we can clearly see where we're going. Okay well let let sorry. I'm GonNa Pause you right there. Because for the benefit again after listening audience in a podcast subscribers you hit upon something. That is so key here that is going to transform the listeners to perhaps getting off the fence in their own lives. So you know using yourself because you did using your southbound myself as the example of how to choose to do things differently That is a choice where once upon a time maybe in our childhoods or at different stages within our own evolution of growth or or chronological age is whatever the case may be you know. There may have been a point where we have been. We may have felt that we were rendered powerless. Or we were too young to have informed choice or two three will now when you become particularly in today's Day and age because it's all information based almost over saturated but the messages are always out there in terms of what people's options are how people can step into their greatness. How people can fear and so when we talk about deconstructing the indoctrinate a blueprint that once upon a time we were all subjected to call it. The generation of her parents call it. You know boss beliefs and false concepts that no longer service particularly living in twenty twenty today. if an adult of today's Day and age decides to sit still succumb to victimology as opposed to empowering themselves to be their own warrior or to be their own hero to be their own Shiro. Then you know what I. It's not like Marcus and myself listening. Audience it's not like we were born with a silver spoon in her mouth. It's not right. It's not like we were born with an extra gene separated us from the rest of humanity and the population of people. It's something that we elected to. You know get comfortable with being uncomfortable and really like examining our own shit and really taking a look at okay. To what degree do I believe in? Once upon a time in whoever it was that profess that to be the end all be all for truth. You know you've got to turn things around. You'VE GOT TO BE INVESTIGATED. You've gotta be explorative. You've gotta be curious you've got to be willing to do the work and call yourself on your own shit before therefore feeling it's you're right to point the finger at somebody else called him on. There's we're freely using the word Shit. Let's ask let's get into okay so the way I see it as many people get into Trying to fix themselves up they go and they buy programs. They go to seminars They purchase whatever the speakers got. And they're trying to take something new something fresh something exciting and they're trying to put it into all the existing shit they already got. Yes and you can't put new into old shit. It doesn't work You know and I approve this time and time again. You've got a clear yourself out of an open space to accept the new absolutely the speakers programs that are a lot of speakers. Got Fantastic programs. But the attrition rate is like seventy five percent because the people aren't ready to take in their jumping one step ahead of themselves absolutely they need to do is. Let's call it a cleansing. They they need to go back and as I said. Look at those frames that are stuck. Okay let's say that way back in the day you were beaten up as a child If you have fear attached to that frame in that frame is stuck in you if you look back and you look at that scene very carefully. You'll realize that now you're sitting. There is an adult. You survive that bright. It's a really good look at that. And how about being proud that you were such a tough kid That you're sitting here now able to talk about it Brian. So switch that emotion from fear to pride because you got through it and you're you're loving normal individual and here you are now ready to take on the world in whatever form you want. You can clear that one out of your way simply by being proud that you were that strong absolutely absolutely so two things. I'm going to say two. Simultaneous thoughts came to me so in my way of saying it which is basically reiterating and underscoring what you just said so succinctly and so beautifully. Marcus which I'm very grateful to you for having done so. Is You know it's no differently a different metaphor all US whether you call it spring cleaning or whatever you know to make way and to make room for the new. You've got to relinquish the old right. You can't create as you said new space for the new things that do belong that do serve you. That aren't going to be a benefit to you. Unless you perjure yourself. The all things that are no longer is just dead weight. So that's my thought. The second thought is Okay where am I going with this? This second yeah. I'm just so fired up here. So the second thought is it pretty much speaks to it. I've lost that thought is gonNA come back to me but okay well while waiting to come back yes. Yeah what I'm trying to say. Is You into the emotion that has to get checked and rice. Yes well the the scene will never leave. You can never leave your past behind you. That doesn't happen right. I can tell you right. Now that the man you're speaking to is a nine year old rockstar. I'm a male stripper. I'M A MALE MODEL. I'm RCMP. Officer I'm a nightclub owner. I'm all those things that you're talking to right now Everything has been absolutely accepted in me. I look like a library. It's it's taking everything in and holding onto it now. How you use it in your future is the magic and what you do with the emotions attached to it. There's many moments in my stripping career. I was a completely. I felt. Shame disgust pain. What turned out around and said I'm proud to be able to speak about it now Because it's helping other people okay. And that's my point. That was my second point so to to reiterate and underscore what you just said which was my second thought that. I'd lost track of their. It's yes thank you so when we go back to your example of the you know using You know you're an abused child and then looking at yourself from the perspective of the vantage point of now I should be proud of myself. This is what I overcame. This is what I overcame. So that's important. Is People like you who I interview people who are in the shifts. Once upon a time within their own story their own current circumstances our own situation once you identified okay. What is the solution for my own problem? And once you you hone that you implement that you take the actionable steps and then you come out on the other side of it. This is where people like you Marcus. You become servant leaders because it really is about knowing well you know. I can't be the only person statistically who wanted. Just break it down to numerology. I can't be the only person who went through this. And yes. Individual circumstances are unique. But this is what then takes you to the next level of not just having solved the problem for yourself now you can solve a similar problem if not the same problem for a whole bunch of people at the collective level and this is where your message standing in your truth and your vulnerability this is where as a servant leader you have the the gift and the privilege and the honour of paying afford and being of service to the collective. I believe that my past happened to me for a reason I if that it was all put in line I I did so many crazy unbelievable things not that had unbelievable things that to stand in front of an audience and and connect with them.

"anthony ray" Discussed on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald

"Wow and you must have been earning more money than anyone is a doorman good friend. You asked Mr Newt. Bc in the first three months. And then I got Mr Nude lower mainland right after that and then I got Mr Nude something else. I don't know they started calling me Mr new to everything which was quite flattering but when I got the new North America that was the Big One. And so based upon all the notoriety and all the attention and the media. I'm sure at that point. Your stepfather came to know the truth. Is that true? Well here's a funny story. Now here's what happened is I came in as a young man in a body builder. And when stripping started they really didn't have bodybuilders just had regular guys doing it and then all of a sudden some some young men like myself came in and we were we were really built and So the older guys were getting pushed out. They were getting less work because we were being requested. So one guy decided to sue. The international artists are over age. Discrimination loud so the Vancouver Sun. They posted a front page ad about this story because it was so unusual that there was a male stripper Trying to sue and agency over h discrimination and they used a picture of the latest greatest male-stripper on the planet. And that was my picture. Of course my fricken. Dad reads the newspaper every morning. I got up for breakfast. One morning and Dad's sitting at the table with his Paper and he just says me says House last night and he goes any trouble. I go no. No everything was fine and he goes. Why mentioned it was okay and you turn the paper around and he said you know I imagine it's not a bad thing having all the women coming chasing after you thought. Oh my God and he had a name for me ever since then he called me a Weenie Wagner. Oh my God and never stop till the day he died. Wow wow well in terms of what you felt you needed to do to step up for the benefit of your family. I JUST WANNA say Kudos to you. You know because you know many of us through life were catapulted into all kinds of situations. That are unforeseen unexpected. You know some we could never have imagined in a million years and you just have to make the best of it and you just gotTa be solution focused and you've got to try and find a lesson within within you know all the things that are adversarial and going against two at the time so again you pivoted very quickly and you did it in a way that benefited. Everybody's so and that was really the Sean of of you. Stepping into what the rest of your career was going to look like. So let's talk about the various hats because when I plugged bio at the beginning of the intro here at the top of the hour. You know you've done so many things in your life you've done more than the average person who lives a full life. Even if they lived to the age of seventy or a hundred so for all the hats that you have worn. What what is your. Where do you drive your most passionate purpose? If you could only limit yourself to one path going forward what would it be counting what I'm doing right now? It's definitely it's definitely as racial speaking I. I'm helping people and and they're helping me in the process. I I've learnt so much from doing it. And and and and talking about the passing everything I've done I look back at it and if I hadn't have done all those things I wouldn't be I wouldn't have the impact. I have now speaker Bingo Bango absolutely and that's why I wanted those people like you. Marcus it's not about regrette Rien. I just know it's all part and parcel of what it needs to be in. It's not until we get into where we currently are futuristically that we can connect the dots and look back on things because oftentimes when we're sitting in the abyss or wherever just floundering our way through things. We have no idea how this is all going to manifest in what the outcome's going to be but then when we have the opportunity to be introspective and we can look back. In retrospect then it starts to make sense a little bit. Does it not well? Yeah you know you can't live in the past the past living in you. Yes and I love that I was going to get to that but you just open that door so so. Let's talk a little bit about some of the feedback that you've received as a result of not only your book but some of your keynote presentations that you're doing on the stage. What have people approached you in saying as a result of having listened to speak and you being very vulnerable and very candidate how is that transformed them or shifted them well for most of them that come up to me. Speak to me you know. I've I've really touched on apart in their own. Lives like I said even though my life has been strange. Even the male stripping thing has been very annoyed thing for some reason. Connect with people The vulnerability of being up there naked in front of everybody that you don't know Just just showing a transparency When I'm on stage I speak about it. I go right into depth and when I do my QNA. I let the audience know. There is no question. I won't answer Be careful what you ask. 'cause you might just get it so. I will answer the question if you ask me and the same here today with Julie said You. Ask me a question. I'm going to answer it. So the the way that the way that they've approached me is How how did you get past this? How did you get past that Onstage I speak about the loneliness of actually being a top male dancer and and three o'clock in the morning you're you're sitting in your room alone Everyone's fighting to get at you. But you don't want anybody because they don't want you they just want what you portray. Yes so and you get enough of that and once you've had your fill of that there's a huge emptiness in you and it led a lot of the guys to suicide ODA I mean it just lead to disaster and ED. What were the repercussions in terms of the `isolation factor showed up for you while the repercussions of that was to to really quite honestly is once. I didn't feel that anybody loved me for me then. I didn't believe anybody ever would really so I destroyed three marriages. Pray off the Bat. Wow I never believed in them So it kind of It tainted me. You know it damaged me a bit that I always want to know what people want will not anymore but I always wanted to know what people wanted from me. Why why are you talking to me? what do you want from me? Because that's what that's the life he lived and imagine going to be an rcmp officer after that. Yeah no kidding from the from the passage of the fire okay. Well let's I don't WanNa lose it because you can. You said something. That was very key in pivotal. So if if we're talking about who you are today in current times for what you are now embarking upon what your endeavoring to do. What's consuming a lot of your time going back to the isolation and going back to you know the questioning you had within yourself you know to what degree two people really love me for who. I am or or alternatively as the persona of what Marcus presents to people. Now you're still in the limelight. So are you still struggling from time to time with the question of do people still love me or no me for who I am or is it the persona as the speaker as the author as the person who's being regularly sought out for media opportunities you know to? What degree does that? Still impact your haunt you. I actually I. I'm going to say that it's pretty much gone because with what I with what I say on stage. What I'm trying to teach people about my past is is to get rid of that kind of feeling and I feel that people now want to talk to me because of me because of my soul and you know. I've done a lot of work a lot of work to get to where I am and in realizing that I need to be me no matter what. I can't transform I can't hit the stage and become someone else. I have hit the stage with other speakers and I've listened to them backstage and then I've gone out and seeing them go out. I realize to different people and and I really didn't like that. I thought that audience deserves honesty truth. Transparency they need to know who you are because they're going to listen to you so I was very adamant about. This is how I am. Offstage says how I am onstage Zoe. I am at home This is how I am driving. My car don't change so I would say that anybody that's in touch with me now is is with me because of me Well and because you you err on the side of authenticity and because you are sharing your story when you take the stage in a good component of your story is no different than what you've shared here so far in this interview Marcus. Is You know questioning. You know to what degree to people really like me for me or or conversely the persona of who I am I would think because you're you're really just calling it out for what it was and that aspect of what you grappled with internally from an isolation standpoint. I would think that the more you are speaking about that specifically on the stage that's Cathartic for your own healing crack. That's what I was saying when I get in front of these audience. I'm I'm getting just as much out of this. Her being a fall in the end you know and I and I'm learning from my audiences so I'm amazed with With the way that people Approach me sometimes. Because they're so willing to tell me everything about them And I find that fascinating I find it very I allow love it And I find it fascinating that they say they're telling me things they haven't told anybody and they don't really know me yet for that guy on stage so that tells me something tells me that. I'm coming across the way that I want to. Which is I'm authentic. Here I am. I'm not I'm not here to pull over your eyes or I'm not even here to sell you anything I'm just here to have a conversation with you. That I think is going to open up your life well. I'm going to say that I'm not at all surprised to hear that to be honest with you in terms of You know people quite candidly and vulnerably sharing things with U. N. prefacing it as. I've never told anybody else. These things other than to you and I think why that would be is because you know taking into account what you did as a male stripper. I mean literally and figuratively. That's bearing all right. That's that's that's bearing all and so when you put yourself in that position of bearing all literally and figuratively your then giving permission directly indirectly to other people whether it be the listening audience who are watching you take the stage or who are reading your book to know that you are approachable because if there was anybody who could identify with what it felt like perhaps to be stigmatized or to feel ostracized or to feel unfairly judged would it would be you and so you've given people permission to step forward and talk about whatever it is apo. They can't share with the majority of other people in their circles. Yeah no you're right. Yeah that would be a gap so I mean. That's a true testament to you really. It is well. I think when you've been through as much as I have in there there's there's tons We won't even be able to get to all of that today but You do realize that you know there's only two things in the world that really exist we only want to things love and beloved that's And if we base everything off of that life is pretty yes yes well. And as you've said in a very roundabout way But you know I always go to the abstract and I always hear the unspoken as opposed to just you know verbiage. And what's out there? But because you've been committed to your own growth and because you've been committed to your own healing in your own personal development. You came to quickly realized that everything is a derivative of self love right. And there's no coincidence to the word self preceding everything else when we're talking about self worth self concept self values self everything self esteem and so once you committed yourself to doing that work and getting crystallized as to who you are regardless of how other people choose to perhaps misconstrue you misinterpret you dismiss you. Whatever the case may be when you love yourself nothing else matters right. You can really well. That's the only time that you can be loved. Yes well yes. Bingo Bullseye Bullseye. Because when an and that to me is the attractor factor too because you can clearly see. Who's done the work on themselves? Emits an exudes that type of energy? Where the people that you are is the boomerang effect effect. So when you are emitting positive energy and when people can see to what degree you love yourself you accept yourself. You embrace yourself It's an open pathway for people to resonate with you and you attract Yummy -ness of the good quality people in your life that you want in your life. Well you know the vibration. The you've got going is very attractive. So everybody was to connect with. Everybody wants to talk to you because they want to know how to feel like that You know it's a simple basic human thing it absolutely is and and in fact most things in life I would say are simple but we as human beings we're complex and tend to make things more complicated than what needs to be. Well Yeah because we got to put a reason behind everything we've been. We have to put a reason behind it There has to be something that we have to do to get it You know we we constantly take I. I look at the Universe is the way I look at. The university might.

You're honing in on currently. I'm having an amazing time. I mean I can't even believe I have to pinch myself every day. The amount of people I'm being connected with an traveling all over the US and soon to go to Europe. So I'm very excited about my speaking career and it's it's really catching on. You know I take a lot of my experiences out of life and I've put them all into my presentations and it's amazing how my life is unusual but it still relates to everyone absolutely absolutely it does and you know what. I want to say too about what I plugged there in the bio is that you know. It's you really do have to have that inherent belief in yourself. You really do have to step into and once you become. We don't we don't have a crystal ball. We can always forecast what the end result is going to be of our decision making at the current time. But you know we. I believe in intuition. I believe when you steal a calling to do something knowing that it's at the very least it's going into enhanced your character. It's going to enhance your confidence. It's going to do all kinds of things that are going to set you on the stage for the trajectory of things that you could not have even imagined for yourself and so what a yummy life you have created for yourself and it turned into a very spiritual thing I've got to say. Let's talk about that. I you know I really realized after In the book there's a really bad car accident there where I actually turned my own car into the cement wall. I was twenty seven years old. I'd had enough and The male stripping world. It can look pretty glamorous from the outside but if you get into it you realize the loneliness that's in there because nobody wanted you for you. They wanted you for who you were so That car accident completely changed me and started me on a whole new direction. Which is why I joined the police force and everything else. I wanted to try and give back and I was finding ways to do that. I never thought that I would end up being a speaker inspirational speaker but it has in line itself with the road that I was on. And now it's absolutely amazing to get in front of audiences and and when I start to tell my story and and how it can help them not to you. Know don't Zeke left when you should write. Don't do what I did. It's amazing to look in their faces and just see the change. That's happening within the ninety minutes. I'm talking Brian Fascinating. Well let's talk about the male stripping component of your journey and thought what we would absolutely and and what I oftentimes lake to do and there's no judgment associated with this anytime. I play devil's advocate with my gas. It's really just to go deeper and it's to give more More contemplate from the listeners perspective. So you know when we play. Devil's advocate with the whole world and the realm of male stripping always going to be a controversial nece attached to that there's going to be two schools of thought some people would say you know. Wow that's very empowering and and and putting yourself out there vulnerably whereas other people might be of the mindset where they'd be inclined to think that it's disempowering like you know. Do not think you have anything. Other than the exterior of your body in which to showcase and to highlight as what you have to offer the rest of the world. So let's talk about your mindset around male stripping okay my mindset around male stripping Nell We're talking about the eighties. Let's not forget. Yeah I was twenty in the eighties. Which is crazy age? Crazy time It was all about the money. I actually got into stripping not because I wanted to be a stripper. It was because the housing market crashed in the early eighties. And My mother and father were GONNA lose their house so the house was going into foreclosure and I went to a nightclub to try to bouncer just to get an extra job because my construction job was gone and instead of being a bouncer there was an amateur. Hula dancing contest. At a ladies night I'd never been to one strapped on a grass skirt. Got Up there and I won this dancing contest and they gave me fifty dollars and said that you're in the semi-finals now and I thought. Oh God man I don't want to go in the semifinals. I WANNA be a doorman and they said come on will pay an extra fifty to go in it because we need the guys. Will I go to the nets ladies night and I dancing my grass skirt and I win again now? I'm in the finals. And what is worth five hundred dollars and that is a lot of money back then not working so I show up for the finals and I get up there. And there's six or seven other guys and these guys are really given it. I mean they're giving it everything they've got. They want that money and I thought while the it's a ladies night I'm GonNa do that last resort thing so I pulled my pants down on one the whole thing. It was more about getting that money that it was anything else and I've always been a fearless kind of person. You know been on stage since I was nine so anyway I I one and there was an agent there from international artists and she came up to me and handed me a card as I said I was worth a thousand bucks a week and I thought thousand dollars a week like this is nineteen eighteen eighties so I was thrown into Male stripping now when I auditioned. I'm a different kind of character. Have been all my life where. I don't like to do things the way everyone else is doing it. I I always try to look for the other way and so my audition was quite unique in something that they never seen before. So what I did is I built a crate. I had a werewolf outfit. Made an inside rate get ready to this and two guys friends of mine carried the crate out on stage and put it in the middle of the stage now. The women are screaming like crazy and all they see is a crate. But it's chains on it and it's got a lock on it and there was no bottom to the crate. Because I was very strong I can hold myself against the sides as carried it so when they plunked it on the floor I can put my feet down and then I would put my head up and lift the crate just ever so slightly off the floor and start to spin while so all these people saw was a crate spinning in the middle of the floor now the dry Isis pouring out and it looks like a whirlwind of dry. Ice In this crate spinning. The women were screaming so loud. It was hurting my ears and then the music eerie music is going on and I stopped the crate dead and then my hand with leather fingers and nails for comes out of the crate and holds the lock and shakes it a little bit and the women just go nuts and then it goes back in and all. I could hear to the side of me. They must have been sitting in the front row. Is the agents. There were three female agents and all I could hear was. What the Hell is he doing? Oh my God is even is in the crate. Why is he in a crate? And then I took a deep breath and I burst the crate because I can pull pins on the inside. The crate burst stood up as a Werewolf. And the rest is history. While three weeks later I was Mr Newt. Vancouver walked away with the first competition. Wow Okay so a couple of things are going to say although I've never in my life and I'm now forty eight. I've never stepped foot inside of a strip club. I want to say that you gave me a really good visual But more so from the creative. Because that's very innovative. And going into it knowing that you wanted to stand out Above the rest and do something that was going to you know to set you. Apart from everyone else I mean that speaks to your entrepreneurial spirit but you said something else. It's very pivotal and I really want impressed. This upon the listening audience. Marcus no you know you embarked upon this. Not because at that time it was your identified purpose. It was based on desperation. Your parents they're homeless going into foreclosure. You're worried that they were going to lose it. You wanted to step up. You wanted to contribute as a family member and you wanted to prevent your parents having go through that unnecessary rate and so oftentimes when we talk about leadership we talk about business. We talk about mindset my personal opinion and. I think that you can attest to this. Based on this being the example of how your life played out. Is You know often times when we are sitting in the abyss when we have to figure out very quickly how we're going to be solution focused how we're going to get ourselves out of a desperate situation that's when we step into it and then boom bang things start to align and it may not be the end all be all for that particular decision that is made but then opens up new arena of opportunities that you never could perceive for yourself and in the process of doing that. I'm and correct me if I'm wrong. Did you save your parents? House took me six months to catch the house up and in the second six months I paid it off. Wow Okay so what? So what do you? What do you think about in terms of purposes Burke Data Desperation Not Passion? While you know we're just human I mean you know it's it's one thing to for me to suffer through something but to watch my parents for through. Something was too much no My father he was actually my stepfather But but my real dad to sense I I never saw him depressed. I never saw him That way before he was a hardworking man and then to just be able to sit at the kitchen table every morning with the newspaper. You know and and not be able to do anything. That was killing him now. I lied to him. I told him I was a doorman. I didn't rubber and And things used to happen to male. Strippers like pants. Got Stolen and things like that so I I came home. One time with some scratches on my neck and he thought I got in a fight as a Doorman Grant. Who said or are you fighting? A bunch of girls and I said as a matter of fact dad. Yeah.

"I am your host Anthony ray hanging out with my dad Rudy V. we've covered quite a lot so far talking about motivation through dogs finding our inner dog belly rubs and wearing socks with sandals with a lot of information very vital information for pet owners and yeah just and fathers and sons alike I'm talking all you sons out there whose dad shove their socked foot into it Sandel here for you I'm here for you at least anyway yes yeah well and and also talking about you know the father son who just you know good spends you know hundred Bucks to hang out in the parking lot and have some beer he was forty forty but close enough to a hundred it was very expensive weekend just in general I guess it's good stuff I'm proud of you son I'm sorry but I'm very very proud of you you taught me well I can't even blame it on you you're not going to drink and not not really anyway I was a partner but you're drinking wasn't my my my drug of choice I guess yeah well I guess I don't have a drug of choice anymore so thank god for that I want to ask everybody out there question while we're on this topic all this motivation to your pets and we I mean you have talked about this thousands of times already the love in the energy when you have a pet dog cat you'll notice that we tend when we're talking about the love and affection of your pet you'll notice that we tend to fail to talk about those of you who think it's adorable to have wizard's running around your house now I love all animals and believe me to each his own I've met snakes before that my friends have had it as pets that are adorable but then he told me he slept with it and now nope it's serve now now yeah hi my chats terrifying yeah a little bit terrifying it's a reptile and you know I don't know I want you guys to write in one talk about this the card is hardly yeah that's the thing I mean I I I met people who have like multiple lizards or dragons or whatever they're called and and I and I love I love all animals sure but I love them but yeah not my bed please write an email us leave comments on a video anyway you can because if I'm wrong I'll admit it but I think you guys are out of your minds for lizards just just run amok you know just tell you a lot about you just get out yes he has the talons I don't yes Tom look at the way he scales the wall yeah right right some peeps I met somebody wants to add a chameleon all look at the way he up where to go like I don't know like look at the way he turns into the color of that and now I can't see him and I killed them by mistake I stepped on like I don't know it just seems very odd you know I don't know there's a lot of other animals because I noticed that recently me and you don't really mention a lot of other pets other than laying ogsi tats and your that's out there apparently when I was younger when I was about thirteen years old I had a turtle and I got a box turtle and we had him in the tank and I wanted to see him crawl around and so I took him out of the tank is a true story and everyone was I I I think my dad called me or something and I just I left and when I came back he would just wasn't there anymore and I just I swear this is a true story I looked for him F. never found them I have no idea where that turned away I swear I I I I don't want to live with the poor turtle but he just wasn't there anymore yeah he was just gone the empty tank as I know I look for him for years where did the turtle go I have no idea see that's what I'm talking about yeah elusive I mean yes again any pet can get away Jordan but I would imagine the trials and tribulations of owning a lizard or leading a turtle run amok are a little different from having a cat or a dog I don't know you know what that's why I think dogs and cats are just so special we as humans I think we need not only do we like our bellies rubbed we need a belly to rob that you know what I mean yeah maybe I'm not not listen not to say other pets aren't special to people we're not saying that but man I don't know where we listened where dog and cat people over here as everybody knows by know me I and again I just want to reiterate I by no means do I hate any animals I won't even kill spiders I love all animals I just it's just but it just as far as having one is that you know I think the snakes are a little bit better outside you know live in I I was speaking of other animals me too I agree with you speaking of other animals I I was in the park and you know we're having some really nice spring days here in north Jersey and I was in the park and you should hear the birds all my god they they they I mean it's just listen needless to say the procreation season is in under their Dayton there will you should hear the birds I mean they they want to get things going you know they're whistling in Hamann and often their wings out I I love it the sex season is in there was a bird outside my window at four o'clock in the morning Jack where we were we were human beings really are very different from animals are we work all mixed in with the witching hour three eight or a bird that the male birds are just doing everything in their power I love it I love it is now matters of the desperate all the time we got there all morning I'd like they play Hey listen I've it's you know all right we were all it's and those are the kinds of birds were they go out and buy a lizard I don't know no no no those are the kind of birds that come down and eat a lizard sure okay true birds are fascinating to me yeah they are hello I love birds birds beautiful me too me too but getting back to our inner dog here though we were again we don't want to I get off too off topic but is that even possible yeah and do we can't we have that ability we can jump in and out that's true what but let's get back to this because here's some of the things that I wanted to kind of bring to focus here no matter what kind of dog you have out there right whether it's a service dog a seeing eye dog or or a cadaver dog whatever whatever agility dog the one thing that all these dogs have in common people is as much as you see them on TV and performing when they go home at night they are still dogs they're still laying on the couch and definitely get in their bellies rubbed and the backs of their ears scratched and they're watching TV with us again that's just what makes them so special these dogs obviously love performing they love doing their task they love working for us and still being our best friends you know they still love hanging with us and loving us so again just dogs are just so special in our lives and we really really need to realize that and another thing that they all they all need and require and this is coming from our our dog grooming perspective here they all need to get grown to know so get some another very very important aspect of the whole scenario if you're going to own a dog whether it's just your pad or whether you own a working dog a guard dog whatever guys grooming I mean you know come on we have to just say that not just because we're growing but it's just so vital and so important especially so your dog is working let's say the dogs out there in the field and doing search rescue that dogs get and it it's going through so much it's could be running through mud rock crawling into caves at the end of the day that dog needs a good grooming good clean an arrest so let's give these dogs what they deserve that's why I'm very happy with the way this industry has begun to grow because I think more more people are realizing that how important grooming is really in general yeah it every kind of dog out their needs it and you know there's ways of supporting all of these task in directly to like we always mention you know if if there is say a you know a local place that you can donate to donate to your your police academy that might be have a canine unit you can also be involved just by simple donation you can donate to say like you know at a seeing eye dog foundation rescue it's endless and you know if you guys are want to get involved in any of this I urge anybody to look up anything that's going on locally that might have to do with what we're talking about and and just get involved and try it seeing eye dogs absolutely amaze me I'll never forget the first time I ever saw a seeing eye dog I was a little kid and this man was trying to cross the street and he was blind and the seeing eye dog was so smart that he noticed that it wasn't time to cross yet and he blocked the man from continuing to walk forward into the street each you know her and the guy I've never been through any kind of course of with seeing eye dogs or anything like that so but I'm sure they explained to the person will be using the dog what this means what that means but the dogs are so smart that the dog literally knew what weight do there's cars coming on and so you know and and it it yeah the dog sort of parked itself in front of the guy's legs sure at not not that when I start walking forward that's when you start walking over it it's it's it's amazing to me it's amazing it is an engine guys if you are out and about in your in public and you see a dog a seeing eye dog or therapy dog in the and they have the jacket that say they specifically say please don't touch me I'm working guys please don't go up to the dog I I still see people do it and it's really really dangerous to do something like that you know that dog especially what you're saying at the seeing eye dog asked to remain focused and alert if you go up to it you take it out of its mental state or a zone that it's in you know it can be potentially dangerous to darken Reineke adults so yeah just a reminder if you do see a dog that's working stay away from it don't pet it listen everybody has the urge because the dogs are so damn cute we all want to go up to it it's just our natural reaction because we love dogs but guys dogs like that definitely just you know stay away from because they are working so just you know be diligent without you know without a doubt to the point you know yeah so what else we got anything you are funny comments section.

"Anthony ray hinton was mowing his lawn to alabama policemen rolled up on him put him in handcuffs what was i being arrested for he asked they wouldn't tell him finally theanswer came murder kidnapping excetera anthony ray hitting provided in alibi by these alibi with correctly arresting officers did not care he was still charged with murder the case went to trial he was convicted he was put on death row for thirty years eventually after all those decades the ballistics evidence that would have exonerated him originally was allowed to be introduced it was hurt by the supreme court anthony ray hidden was released from jail on good friday may of two thousand fifteen is now out with the paperback version of his new york times bestseller the sun does shine how i found life freedom and justice anthony ray hinton thanks for coming on thank you for having me wow to condense what you went through in those few sentences i mean it's more than just time it's unbelievable journey where actually you don't move much except in your mind so my first question is when did it begin to dawn on you that not only were you going to be unfairly treated by the criminal justice system but that it really looked like there is going to be no way out it really began owned the way to the police station a did detected in no uncertain and it made it clear that they really didn't care whether that did it or not they just need someone to a be convicted for so they can clean up the books an adult really in the truth that once i got to the police station we will sit sit down and they would tell me what was all about it and talk inoculate spraying the name of outlaws if i could remember in they were jake into it and say okay we made a mistake mistake you're free to go but it didn't happen that way a moment they pull the ball in my yard they came out with hancock and guns and they came and got demanded they just decided they were going to convicting put him on death row regardless of what i said what i did there while tried to talk to a dating here so at that point i knew that i wasn't a deep trouble yeah and you grow up in alabama your whole life you're twenty nine you must have known that not only what they're plenty of racism but that plenty of innocent people went the gel why do you believe for so long that it wouldn't happen to you well to be honest with you my mother always told me to tell the truth and and i hadn't had a problem with a police department of justice system in alabama fans did i did do you're talking about didn't try a duck and dodge pled guilty to writing bad checks are still in the car but nesting disappear in i truly believe that they police a main job was to find a real perpetrator perpetrator regardless of what the crime was not even thinking differently when i found out that they won't at someone from murder i'm saying you got the wrong guy but they didn't care and so that's you swing out really begin to understand that it wasn't about so much finding the right person they just won't declare the books and they could clear with me so when you go to prison you don't talk for three years you're first three years in previous right absolutely without a conscious choice or did it just overcome here i think it was a little both i'll be honest with you all of my life my mom had brought me up to believe and in law and order my mother had believe in taught me that the police will ship for you in when i got convicted i met with god more than anybody when i got to death row in they put me in this by by seven sale i sit on his bump that was already too small for me but i did say one thing guard only open my heart animal in for the next three years i didn't say a word trading one every time one of the guard would ask me anything i would just get a pen approach and just right out my reply plus i talked to my mom i didn't talk to my my friend left a when they would come see my i would just shake my head at my mom we would ask me all the time you're not feeling well and i just close my eyes what made you finally speak a process about one in the morning i woke up to the sound of a grown man crime amanda lightly about three years in action mentioning waves from but my mom truly had taught me compassion she would tell me predate looked like no matter what rondos in life they steal deserves of compassion they still need to notice on medicare bottom level in that compassion came out when i heard this man that i never spoke to cry and i hollow out through the balls they missed something wrong you need to get a the guards and to dismantle a few minutes to replied he finally said no he said i just got word my mother passed and i told him i was sorry heated and i sit back down got off the balls sit back down in i realized at that moment that my mother was still alive i was alive and i have something to be thankful for and from that moment on i decided that that moment that i was going to take my life back i was going to leave the best life to actively open to i guess they execute now that you are an advocate for the falsely accused do you look back on any of the people you are on death row west and try why to question oh do they really just did they really commit the crime oh maybe they didn't commit the crime is that a mental process that you're engaged with now given what you do absolutely in fact a i could owners say without a doubt i believe that there was five people that was on his innocent at the time good outlive of those five what happened to them i would say that at least four have already been executing i wanna ask you is one of those people on death row who is executed who you believe was innocent was donnas must grove one of them absolute absolute now the reason that i asked about him specifically is that v prosecutor in your case bob mcgregor judge in your case with the same as donnas must grove had in his case and i went and the prosecutor in your case mcgregor who has since died wrote a book called whiskey bent and held bound no holiday for justice an in it i'll just let my listeners listen as he describes vibes you i don't know if this will make you uncomfortable just a given idea of a how this prosecutor conducted himself the chapter on you it's called evil personified anthony ray hinton and he talks about you you as being anthony ray hitting eight k the cooler killer c o l e r because of the actual victims of that murder you didn't commit were in a freezer they they walked into a freezer and he said speaking of rat bastard one of the coldest executioners that i ever confronted in all my years is a prosecutor was anthony ray hinton now must grows family also says that he was unfairly and incorrectly convicted but now he's dead end he's gone so you know what happens at what could what could we do after the fact is there any way to ever go back and see if that was adjusts conviction oh no what she would both mcgrew don't kill in his book bama greg it was known to have this sterry people when he was on the witness stand in bought mcgregor met his match when he met me i looked at bob mcgregor and i may bama greg drop his head because we were staring at each other in bought mcgregor took a profound dislike taught me but bob mcgregor what he don't gio however she bought mcgregor rules to me one of the most racist prosecutor and i don't know how he was able to get to where he got but even when i was convicted he said but i was told by mcgregor is said we didn't get the right naked today but at least we got a new golf district so less mcgregor need to be expo who he was and what he walls and people ask me every day wage depression a prosecutor june i say there were no disrespect i say bama great date and i truly believe he inhale yeah and there are portions i almost after i read your book conferred interviews with you there are portions in his book i mean at one point he describes something that went on in your trial when you lamed correctly that only people with access to that gun that hadn't been fired in twentyfive years where you and your mom and then he asked you so you're saying you're mom committed the murders and then he said you said she may have well you know bottom greg will say prosecutor that would save whatever he won't say bought mcgregor had his way in a courtroom and everybody got back in i to be honest with you i would question every a crowded bar gregory did and what kind of prosecutor would say regardless of what the court system say if he ever his release i'm gonna buy me a brand new thirty and among white known in normal gun him now that's the profound hatred that he had for me because i stared him down and i felt let's be honest which i feel sorry for him as a man that perhaps was never loved in his life in as they would say he's a chance to show the world for not being the boreal demand that got the girls out was not good in sports so he went to school and became a lawyer and he became a dna and he used his office for sappers in hateful reason i'm not going to give bought mcgregor the satisfaction of saying anything nice about it because there was nothing my body since your release on good friday four years ago has it all been sunshine in walking in the rain has there been any difficulties in reacclimated ing world that must have been in many ways very new to you all have been also shot and i won't lie only win there is execution of my mind goes back to the thirty years to accomplish their i know exactly what they condemn is going through i know exactly what the prison is the one week away execution coming up every car is treating that human being like he's a human being they willingly go out and do whatever they can for you these are the same people that treats you like dirt until you get on execution but the moment you get and execution all of a sudden if you need anything just let us know the warden allow visitors to come at you couldn't see before you got and execution of that particular night they get rid of execution they will send you all festive say with the best meal whenever whenever you won't eat just let us know and we'll get it for you treat you like a human being because they.

You know, me be loved growing up in New Orleans. You know, amazing meeting experience, you know, one of the few unique places really really you have you guys back then. Going off my mom with great. Sisters, and she put in a lot of energy and effort related kind of you know, the make up you never want for anything. I learned a lot from the drought. The year after. Living in New Orleans for awhile and went to school up in Boston. That was great very very challenging. And after a while when I realized I wasn't going to fall string theory. You know? Job, and you know, over into consulting. I worked for a couple of big consulting firm McCain the Catterson. Two things that I spent a couple of year that and you know, there I worked a lot in factories. And you know, that really led me to you know, wanting to cook my dog Winston Vinci, let me be while launching pets play. But you know, it for me. Really been under any just exploring and trying. Always learn new day. I can. Yeah. That's just a little bit about me. That's awesome. Rinaldi? I I love that. You you give props to your mom. I grew up with a single dad, I kinda can relate. So that you give your props to your mom, so important. Hard to raise. Imagine where down. I'm sure you are. But let's talk a little bit about that too late. What you're obviously an entrepreneur right now what you know, what advice can you give to you know, a up and coming entrepreneur like yourself. Yeah. You know, I think a lot of it really just ask to come to finding something that you believe in and in really going after it very much, but I would have played found the base that I thought they could do a lot of good when I saw the pet be banker though, hoping and I really thought that there was a real food solution. I can make a difference in the lives of a lot of parents. And that was something that I was able to rally behind. So I always all entrepreneurs that are thinking about launching something make sure you find something you're excited about because it's gonna be hard, right? You're gonna fail. You know, hundreds thousands of times Indian failure daily and always good to be able to make sure that you can fall back on a mission and vision, you're excited about and then I would also say, you know, really make sure that you have your mentors. I, you know, I again, when my learning do always learned the hard way, you know, there's so much that you don't know. And I also like to say like most. People know that there's an lobby don't know. But then they don't know all the stuff that they don't know that they should know. Problem. And that's where I or it's can really come into play in ink and help to set you up. Right. I find so many times preneurs kind of pride. You know, I've been Huckabee put any petro, but you don't always have to reinvent the wheel where people can help you. And where people are willing to help you make sure you take that kind of you know, just to to negative. But you know, we could talk about this for hours probably know. Yeah. The things I wish I knew. But it's beautiful because you have such great insight because you're going through it as well. And I I don't think that entrepreneurs ever stopped going through it. It's kind of just a constant journey. So it's one thing that we love about you again. We're just so happy to have you on the show. So I gotta be honest with you Rinaldo, I'm looking at the brochures, and I've seen the food on YouTube and everything and ambiance, man. It looks so good. I feel like breaking out with with a fork and spoon, and and myself, honestly, like crackers with this because look so tempting so let's talk a little bit about the food. The one thing I love about it is grain free, right? I yeah. I think we have a variety of different options in just for the people that I haven't heard of before where queuing grade had delivery service. Imagine a prequel blue apron that gets delivered to your door dog. And hopefully, very soon we'll have to have any question it being rain-free. We have four different options right now for dog that definitely need a grain free diet currently up two options. Available a beef and Turkish, and then, you know, we have also a chicken dish. It doesn't have any grain as well. And then our land is has team wine it, and you know, we're always going to be locking meal kind of changing we offer. So we just wanna make sure that we have something for everybody. There. The weather. Your dog has your allergies or as a picky eater as stomach? We're really trying to make sure that we have a formulation out there that will work for you. That's amazing. Yeah. It's definitely intriguing and we love it. Do you find that with the ongoing obesity problem that we're having with our pets? Are you finding with your product is a healthy option. Yeah. And you know, anything huge issue right with I believe sixty percent in Boggs in America being overweight or obese namely probably about the thing for cat. It's using them. When you start looking at other illnesses associated with that as like diabetes, right? It just it can really be updating problem. You think about that Bill that are associated with those? But you know, we really liked their approach it from a couple different ways. One using high-quality ingredients the ingredients that we you. We don't use any speller, and that make sure that you're getting all of all the food, and it's really using all the nutrients that we're providing and I think that's really important. You know, just like you are what you put in. And if you're you know, putting in junk, you're not gonna get great stuff out. But I think the bigger portion of it is that we portion all of our meal. And that's based on the way by a dog going. You hop on on our website. You know, you talk a little bit about your pup. And then from now, we can understand how many calories per day that they need. And I think that's a big hole that happened with other product weather, its Kibble or wet food you go out and you buy this dime bag, and it's really unclear how much you're supposed to feed your dog. Right. And you know, your dog's loving the food you want to be happy. You're adding a little bit more than you're adding tree. And then without knowing it you just giving your way more calories than the absolutely need perpetuate, very different experience..

We love talking about food. Right. And we love eating food to obviously a little too much. I think. Yeah. Well, in particular, we're going to be talking about pet food. But man, what a great topic. I mean, it's been a really really fun summer for me. I've eaten so much pizza and sausage parm. And all that good stuff. And how about you, man? What's your steady diet these days lasagna? Just kind of in general. Sonya with a lot of sauce on it. Yeah. That's it. Not even really drinking water a whole lot. Just just just lasagna to stay on Sunday dinner lasagna and call for breakfast. I'll have a cold peace lasagna. Yeah. I don't really like hot food that much for lunch. I'll probably have another cold hunk of lasagna. Title in with you know, with a third lasagna or two for dinner. I had an order of mozzarella sticks at the diner the day. But it did have like a healthy overtone 'cause they laid it on that of lettuce, y'all. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. The. But I didn't eat the lettuce, of course. But if fell if felt like I was doing something healthy though because I saw the house. Look at this. You know, anytime there's something green on the plea. It makes you feel better. Right. Even if it's not good. Just some on the plate or even if you don't eat it like a lot of times like I'll have a big bowl of mashed potatoes. You know, and you know, they'll be some they'll be some string beans, and there some broccoli corn in it. A little corn. And you know, and then you just kind of work around the colors and just go for the mashed potatoes. And you know, whatever as long as the healthy stuff. Is there for me? It's a it's a placebo going. I feel like I did I'm doing something. Good. I love that. We definitely we treat our dogs better than we treat ourselves. And I think that's going to be the the point of this show today because we have a really great guest coming on Rinaldo web from pet flea and men this guy has designed some super super designer healthy food for our dogs. I think I want to indulge in it. I might might take a few scoops. Do they I wonder if they have lasagna? Maybe maybe come out with lasagna flavored who knows? You know, it just to make it easier on him if they just just cheese. Anything cheese? Really? Is it works for me? But yeah, that's definitely the the theme today. Today's show for sure none of that. Unhealthy stuff coming into our dogs lives. Okay. And that is the purpose of this show. We are going to be talking about this amazing food.

"Welcome back to groomer humor on radio. I am Anthony Ray hanging out with my dad as always Rudy. And it's been a very interesting episode. So far, we've been going over some older comments that were let's just say removed reasons. Yes deleted. From some of our guests lesser fans. Although, although I'm pretty sure one or two of those people who left those comments, actually subscribe. So the world's a strange place world of YouTube, especially as a very strange place. But so, yeah, it's been pretty fun episode. We want to reiterate, we love all you guys. Just been we love we love comments, and we love reading, especially the good ones. But even the bad ones are funny sometimes so we kind of wanted to like take this episode. And just kind of, you know, go over a couple of them that we that. We thought you guys would think are funny, and yeah, and we're just kind of like Chattan it's been a very fun last couple of months. We had some cool guests on Erica salve. Amini was on from just for pause. Just for us. Set up. Yes. Messing up erica's. Yes. Yes. She was always we're actually going to be visiting her soon, hopefully won't take some some clips with them. And and you know, have Iran, much politics erica's fascinating. She's very fun to talk to we also had Rinaldo web on from shark tank with plate Rinaldo was Leeman super super cool, dude. Yeah. Just really really just lately it has been just fun. Lot of a lot of fun lately, we have been having so much fun which between this show, and and our YouTube channel and just talking you guys we have met so many of you already. I don't know. I just been having so much fun doing it. And you know, it's hard. It's definitely hard to pump out videos, and we try to bring you as many as we can be like like, my dad said earlier, we're going through the course of our day, and we got the phone ring in and we got a now I'm breaking out with whiting and Mike's and we're trying to film this dog on the table just to show you guys. So it becomes a challenge. But man, we were having a lot of fun lately. It's just it's growing and it's getting better and bigger, right? I mean, yeah. Absolutely. We love doing it. That's why like I never I didn't think for one second that we would be in a position where it's like. Wow. This is really us. Now, you know what? I mean, like we again special thanks to at life radio, our producer Mark winter for giving us the opportunity because he said, right? When I started talking to Mark again, he had mentioned to me and said that you know, yet, you'll have your own radio show. And I was like never had my own radio show. But now, I do and just so happy about that. And so thanks again more. It's it's we're having a lot of fun. We're making a lot of friends like you said like, you know, Rinaldo web with Pat fleet. Erica Salvini we making so many friends via know internet, and it's amazing when you start connecting with people. And again, I'm one of those guys Mike that anti tech guy. Like, you said you always say about me, I'm fascinated that my cell phone has a flashlight. You know what? I mean. That's me. Right. So, but I'm fascinated that you can connect with so. Many people and learn so much about them. Mike somebody like Rinaldo who puts together this amazing dog food, which we highly recommend you guys haven't already checkout Rinaldo web had played dot com and get your dogs on this food. It's just amazing. You probably couldn't cook for your dog better than this. It's just that good. But yeah, I just love the people were meeting. I love what we're doing. We're having so much fun. Like, you said in even these comments, it just goes to show, you that at least people are watching and they're listening. You know what I'm saying? Even if it is a negative comment or a funny comment, people are listening. It's really weird. Like, you know, we we have like almost I don't know five hundred thousand views on our YouTube channel, and we we only started like a year ago. So we're really excited people out there who are interested in they like us, and you know, you're right. What you said before you're definitely not the tech guy. You just said via internet so right there. That's the proof. To that. Correct way. What's what how do you say you just internet? Honestly, even the word internet at this point is just you just say it's been fun connecting with people don't ever say that don't say via internet. I don't I don't know the tech lingo Anthony like you do. I thought Twitter was a sound. Okay. When I first heard that throws a sound that that I wasn't aware of. Hey, did you hear Twitter, and I was looking around the room going? I think so I heard from the nineties. I dunno Twitter. They sound. I know that ban. They used to open up for twisted sister, right? I know those guys. Mr Ben sister, the Twitter sister. Yeah. I apologize. But I am learning. Hey, when we connect now with with Mark and everything I actually learned how to answer the phone. Yeah. On the via internet. Yes. When we connect with Mark via internet. It's always a lot of fun to Mark Mark to fun guy. And yeah. See that's the thing is the funny thing is is that, you know, Mark is actually, you know, he's got a couple of years on me and he's tech wizard. So there's no excuse I just really I just really suck technology. You know, what it is? I know what you just waited too long to get a new cell phone. That's all that happened. I promise you because if you just would have gotten it. You know, when they started coming out, and being able to do all these awesome things, you just your phone will teach you a little bit about, you know? All right. It's the put it this way. The least fascinating thing phones. Do now is that damn flashlight that you're still trying to wrap your head around? I learned how to share a picture. That's good. That's good. That is good. Instrument via internet you shared a picture. Yes. I swear. I did. Wow. You pulled down the little screen, and you press share. And then it brings you to your messages. And then you you click on the messages. Hey, listen to anybody else that doesn't know this out there. Yeah. Right. Hey, listen, you guys don't own this out. There wasn't ever have any questions for my death. You just reach out to him via internet, and and he'll get back to you. As soon as he can. The which may take a while. May take a while. This really is just like so so I loved it. If anything is fun. I guess about this. It's just getting the hang out with you. And then Mark, and it's just so much fun. You know, 'cause it's not me, and you get to hang out non via internet sometimes every day. Every day. Okay. And because of this. We're getting some opportunities that are going to be cool. Like, we're gonna finally hopefully, see Mark in the next few months in person because we're going to be trying to make it down to Florida for the expo down there. And that's going to be cool and just just fun stuff that wouldn't be happening without the support that we've had from, you know, from Pat life without just, you know, well without deleting a couple of comments and keeping them keeping on with channel ourselves, which is a huge challenge. But. And our fans we have three thousand fans. That's really that's really really cool. We're very grateful. Yeah..

Todd, Shelly, Alex Robertson Giovanni and everyone else working there barklay for making this whole thing possible, and we're going to get back to them. But we want to talk a little bit about the show. I and we're going to start off. I think with all of the amazing dog loving people who attended there were so many dimension here, but just off the bat. I remember just a couple. I remember Maria and her mom Colleen with her dog sparkles. There was a hitter. I remember that. You know, her service dog sparkles? We did a quick interview with her. There was Felicia Felicien her family downstairs with the her dog Vigo Inova, they were so entertaining. And so much fun to talk to there was Megan in her rescue that jasmine and on and on. I mean, we just talked to so many people I guess said we apologise advancers too many dimension. But what do you think about that? Anthony, the just getting there the vibe the attendance.

You know, it was just that vibe that happy vibe that was going around the entire time. Even the dogs were getting along. Oh, of course. Yeah. I barely saw any dogs not wanting to sniff each other and hang out, and I never saw so many, but sniffs in my life. It was amazing. Yeah. There were more dogs than people. There was. Was carts. There was dogs in wheelchairs. There was three legged dogs. There was just there were supermodel dogs or anything you could possibly imagine small dogs. Giant breeds amazing. Toy breeds and everybody came dressed to impress too. I mean, the dogs were decorated they were colored. I mean, they were wearing tutus and suits Boone's. You name it. It was there. I mean, if you weren't there make sure you get there in two thousand nineteen because really it's something to see we were so happy to be there. And I think the funniest thing that we were seeing was in the main entrance in the front stairs. There was a lot of stairs to get up and into the event, and there were steep. So a lot of times depending on what angle you're looking at the stairs. It was looking like dogs were arriving completely on their own without owner's because we would see the dogs. I I, you know, so you have these dogs painted up in Tutu's arriving without anybody. I mean and not actually opposite. Their owners. Behind them. But the dogs were so eager to get in. They were getting to the top of the stairs before the people. And it just looked like dogs were showing up on their own. You know, you're gonna go to the expert L. Let's go see my cousins going, you know, like just just that's what it looked like it was hysterical. And the people lagging behind him struggling to get up to the stairs of dogs are just flying up. Guys. Yeah. So listen, let you know what let's let's talk a little bit about like this really stood out for me. Just all of the the rescue and adoption people there. I mean, we're going to mention a few here. Guys. We apologize in advance for not mentioning you. There were just too many of you to mention but right off the bat. I mean, these people like we always say are the real heroes in this. The people that are out there. Rescuing dogs bringing dogs back to life that are just starving or hurt. And then finding them homes. What's mentioned a couple? I mean there was cause for pause from North Carolina. There was Korean canine out of New York. One dog at a time in PA deaf dogs rock in Virginia Kino's right here in Brooklyn, New York. One of our favorites was forever yours rescue right in PA with Dorothy, and Scott, we had the liberty of talking to them. They were so nice. Right. Sammy's. Hope right here in New Jersey. Also, there was NYC second chance in New York. Let's not forget Amanda fuller in rose Adler over at tellers 'cause my God, what a tear Jerker these girls. Really? I can't stop thinking of you. And what you guys are doing with the dogs. We're gonna talk more about them. We we did in pre end up interview with them, but real quick colors causes just they deal with def dogs and blind dogs that Merle dogs double Merle dogs. And not only do they give them. Great homes, but mainly teach these dogs tricks. Dogs are jumping through hoops. They can't see they can't hear so shout out to Amanda in rose. Thank you guys. You guys are so so nice. They were just that was the most heart warming. I had ever seen in my life. It's hard to talk about because those dogs are just so sweet. And so they are. I mean, just when we put out the videos and the interviews you'll hear I don't even want to say too much of their story because it's something that I think should be heard from them. They can tell it obviously better than we can. But yeah, but you guys just look forward to that our interview with it was great. Yeah. Another thing that stands out for me. And I'm sure you felt this to Anthony is that like with all of the booths and the rescues that were there. I mean, there must have been. I'm just guessing off the top of my head, probably at least thirty forty fifty of them with all of the rescue organizations that were there I noticed that. Although. Oh, each and every one of them wants you to maybe donate to them because they needed individually these rescue organizations are so selfless that they literally ask you to donate to other rescue mortgage sations that might need more help than they do at the moment. And again, I mean, it's just so emotional. Yeah. I mean, it's on another level of generosity generosity, isn't even the word to use. When I was hanging out with Dorothy from forever, yours, she really opened my eyes about how it takes over your life. When you do these kinds of rescue organizations. I mean, it turns their lives upside down in positive way. But man, just the effort that it takes. I mean, they're bringing them to their own homes their own facilities. They're taking care of them. They're finding the right homes. Not just you know, anybody taking these animals that they're rescuing. And it's just I mean, it's. A way of life for them. And they're not even you said, and then, you know, they're talking about other organizations, not even themselves. So they're not even it's not even an ego thing. I mean, it is literally the most selfless generous just kind hearted thing to do it becomes their life where they don't even adored. I mean when I was talking to. I mean, you saw I was hanging out with Dorsey all weekend. Yeah. You she was just so fun to talk to you again, hashing it and our s- analogy her and Scott, Scott, nice Butte. I loved the Dorothy even said herself that she loved me. And it's like, no you when what you're doing. Just I can't even believe the effort. She really opened my eyes about what a beautiful thing. It is that that day doing all these these rescue organizations. Do I mean, they are just a class act all around. Yeah. And just to reiterate what you just said to. I mean, people were dropping the love us like crazy because that was the the energy that was flowing just a really a love energy. And really how many times can you just meet somebody for a few hours and say, I love you simply because that's how you feel about certain people. So yeah. And also with Dorothy and Scott over there. Forever yours they were also nominated in the rescue dog transformation of the year with their dog miracle. Who they literally just brought back to life. I mean, we saw the before. And after images of miracle was just like my God do that on death's door. It would have died in a few hours and here it is. And you and you look at the at the after picture, and it's like, wow, it's not even the same dog and the amount of time and work that goes into just one dog like miracle and they're doing multiple dog. You know what I'm saying? So we really just wanted to thank all of you rescue people out there. We can't stress that enough heart warming keep doing what you're doing. God bless all of you out there. And I hope that you know, you guys rescue as many dogs as you can. I think you're rescuing more than just the dogs. I think we're rescuing ourselves. If that makes any sense, I don't know. Well, the dogs sometimes they're rescuing us. Yeah. Here's the thing. If you're listening to this right now with all these rescue organizations, look them up show them some support volunteer help these organizations they are incredibly incredibly important and just the absolute kindest people to boot. So do whatever you can help these people out because they're doing such a beautiful thing. And it was an absolute honor to be able to hang out with them and meet them. You know, it was it was beautiful. It was. I agree. Make a donation. Look look any rescues up in your area. Listen, if you could if you could give two bucks, give two bucks, if you give two hundred two hundred I mean, there's ways of rescuing without actually being out there on the front line, and that's the donation process. So keep that in mind guys. So another thing we wanted to talk about was just all the vendors shoots again too many dimension. But some of the standouts for us right off the bat once again Keller's 'cause I can't I can't stop talking about. We love you guys. Goodness. Yeah. And your dogs. I mean, just such a special. There was a Stacey..

"Pet. Life radio dot com. Welcome back to rumor humor on pet life radio. Once again, we are your hosts I'm Rudy along with Anthony Ray, and first and foremost guys, we want to thank Barclay productions. Todd, Shelly Alex Robertson Giovanni everyone else working there barklay for making this whole thing possible. And we're going to get back to them. But we want to talk a little bit about the show. I and we're going to start off. I think with all of the amazing dog loving people who attended there were so many dimension here, but just off the bat. I remember just a couple. I remember Maria and her mom Colleen with her dog sparkles. There was a here. I remember that guy's her service dog sparkles. We did a quick interview with her. There was Felicien her family downstairs with her dog Vigo Nova. They were so entertaining. And and so much fun to talk to there was Megan and her rescue. Jasmine and on and on. I mean, we just talked to so many people said we apologize in advance. There's too many dimension. But what do you think about that? Anthony, just getting there in the vibe, the attendance. It was crazy. Yeah. I mean, it's hard to even really start where do you even begin talking about the turnout with that? Like, you said I mean, there was just between the vendors the people who made it possible. And then just the people who attended were just like you said like Felicia and her family, we met them downstairs her nephew, Sean is you know, he's he's perspective dog trainer. And he's so good at it already in such a nice little kid. He was like twelve years old. This kid is doing teaching his dogs tricks. Like like, he's been doing it all his life. I guess he has been our ears. Exactly. And like you said to Maria and sparkle sparkles has an Instagram account that I followed right away. And Maria was the first like the first person we saw when we walked in and right away, me, and you. We're just like, dude. Let's we have to interview her. This is this is just the most adorable thing. And she was so sweet. I mean, everybody was like that. I mean, I like everybody was so nice. Yeah. Yeah. Everybody was there. I just think it was just like this whole common cause it just felt like like one big family energy there. I think everyone there had one thing in common their everybody. We all just love dogs. How else can you sum it up other than just five thousand doglovers condensed into this? You know this arena for two straight days. I mean just couldn't help but feel happy. And you know, it was just that vibe that happy vibe that was going around the entire time. Even the dogs were getting along. Oh, of course. Yeah. I barely saw any dogs not wanting to sniff each other and hang out, and I never saw so many, but sniffs in my life. It was amazing. Yeah. There were more dogs than people. There was. It was the was. Carts. There was dogs in wheelchairs. There was three legged dogs. There was just there were supermodel dogs or anything you could possibly imagine small dogs. Giant breeds amazing. Toy breeds and everybody came dressed to impress too. I mean, the dogs were decorated they were colored they were, you know. I mean, they were wearing tutus and suits Boone's. You name it. It was there. I mean, if you weren't there make sure you get there in two thousand nineteen because really it's something to see we were so happy to be there. And I think the funniest thing that we were seeing was in the main entrance in the front. The stairs. There was a lot of stairs to get up and into the event, and there were steep. So a lot of times depending on what angle you're looking at the stairs. It was looking like dogs were arriving completely on their own without owner's because see the dogs. I I, you know, so you have these dogs painted up in Tutu's arriving without anybody. I mean and not actually opposite their owners were behind them. But the dogs were so eager to get in. They were getting. The top of the stairs before the people. And it just looked like dogs were showing up on their own. See, you know, you're gonna go to the X Bel. Mel, let's go see her my cousins go, and you know, just just that's what it looked like it was hysterical and the people lagging behind him. Struggling to get up. The stairs of dogs are just flying up. You know? All right, guys. Yeah. So listen, let you know what let's let's talk a little bit about like this really stood out for me. Just all of the the rescue and adoption people there. I mean, we're going to mention a few here. Guys. We apologize in advance for not mentioning you. There were just too many of you to mention but right off the bat. I mean, these people like we always say are the real heroes in this people that are out there. Rescuing dogs bringing dogs back to life that are just starving or hurt. And then finding them homes, but let's mention a couple. I mean there was cause for pause from North Carolina. There was Korean canine out of New York. One dog at a time in PA deaf dogs rock in Virginia Kino's right here in Brooklyn, New York. One of our favorites was forever yours rescue right in PA with Dorothy, and Scott, we had the liberty of talking to them. They were so nice. Right. Sammy's. Hope right here in New Jersey. Also, there was NYC second chance in New York. Let's not forget Amanda fuller and rose Adler over at Keller's. 'cause my God, what a tear Jerker these girls. Really? I can't stop thinking of you. And what you guys are doing with the dogs. We're gonna talk more about them. We we did in pre in interview with them, but real quick Keller's causes just they deal with def dogs and blind dogs that Merle dogs double Merle dogs. And not only do they give them great homes, but mainly teach these dogs tricks dogs are jumping through hoops. They can't see they can't hear so shout out to Amanda in rose. Thank you guys. You guys are so so nice. They were just that was the most heart warming. I had ever seen in my life. It's already been talk about because those dogs are just so sweet. And so they are. I mean, just when we. Put out the videos and the interviews you'll hear this story. I don't even want to say too much of their story because it's something that I think should be heard from them. They can tell it obviously better than we can. But yeah, but you guys just look forward to that our interview with it was great. Yeah. Another thing that stands out for me. And I'm sure you felt this to Anthony is that like with all of the booths and the rescues that were there. I mean, there must have been. I'm just guessing off the top of my head, probably at least thirty forty fifty of them with all of the rescue organizations that were there I noticed that. Although each and every one of them wants you to maybe donate to them because they need it individually, these rescue organizations are so selfless that they literally ask you to donate to other rescue organizations that might need more help than they do at the moment. And again, I mean, it's just. So emotional. I mean, it's on another level of generosity generosity, isn't even the word. See us when I was hanging out with Dorothy from forever, yours, she really opened my eyes about how it takes over your life. When you do these kinds of rescue organizations.

I mean, it is literally the most selfless generous just kind hearted thing to do it becomes their life where they don't even door. I mean when I was talking to. I mean, you saw I was hanging out with Dorsey all weekend. Yeah. You she was just so fun to talk to you. So what hashing it and scenario? Analogy her and Scott, Scott, nice Butte. Like, I loved Dorothy even set herself that she loved me. And it's like, no you when what you're doing. Just I can't even believe the effort. She really opened my eyes about what a beautiful thing. It is that that day doing all these these rescue organizations. Do I mean, they are just a class act all around. Yeah. And just to reiterate what you just said to.

"anthony ray" Discussed on Pet Life Radio

"Welcome back to groomer humor on pet life radio. I'm Anthony Ray hanging out with my dad has always Rudy v. And we are dozen hard this week because we had just completed the world dog expo was just this past weekend and up to this point. We have just been raving about it talking to you guys about some of the people that we met some of the vendors the rescue agencies just everything just what an absolute love fest that we just participated in. And when we left off we were going to talk about some of the entertainment, and we wanted to talk to you guys a little bit more about barklay productions as a whole so. Yeah, I mean, we had the honor of meeting. Sarah Carson Carson and my goodness. She would you guys might have seen her on. America's got talent. She was a finalist. Rightfully so my gosh. What what what I mean? Where do you again? We've said this under times already during the show. But where do you even start with how impressive Sarah Carson is again, listen aside from her show and what she? Does with hero. And I'm pretty sure it was low key that she was using correct me if I'm wrong there. Sara sorry. But I know that hero what she's doing in the arena is just nothing more than just like a miracle for real because she has to be one of the best trainers out there. But what Sarah does is? I mean, she just incorporates all of this choreography and all of this beautiful interaction with her dogs and work so hard at it. But what I really notices that Sarah works twice as hard outside of the arena. I mean, we were watching her, and I swear I swear she has a body double she had a body. This girl is walking around that arena in lightning speed at one point. She was looking at like, scarves, and necklaces across the way. And I swear I walked to the arena and she's in the arena with hero. How can happen? Physically impossible. Seriously, what I noticed about her was that how hard she works in between sets maintaining the dogs constantly walking them constantly watering them giving them breaks and love and the job's not over once. She comes out of the arena. Now, she's doing a meet and greet. This girl is just she doesn't have to work out. I'll tell you that much. No gosh. No. She doesn't stop moving does not stop moving. And and I mean for the duration of the entire expo two days in a row. Sarah, just did not stop moving. The only time she might have stopped moving is when we interviewed her at the end of the second day. I think her break time is walking the dogs. Yeah. That's her break time. I literally did not see Sar Carson stop moving at all. Oh, I can't wait to shoot. Because I took some I took a couple of clips of her performance with hero. And I cannot wait to show you if anybody who hasn't seen it. I mean, people were crying people look at how amazing the performance wasn't. And this wasn't like a sad performance or this is no upbeat happy. Go lucky great performance of dancing, and music and stuff like that. And I looked to my right. And there was people crying at how how amazing her dogs are and how how choreographed it was. I mean, I've never seen anything like that. Before me neither I saw to. It's just that again, he weren't crying because it was just sad. They were crying because of the beauty of and the relationship that is going on between Sarah and the dogs, and you just can't help get emotional, so guys, honestly, she is in your area checkout, Sarah. I mean this girl so well deserving of everything all of her success. Sarah. Thank you so much for letting us interview, you briefly we were trying to like not bother you the whole time. But we appreciate you making some time for us. That was really nice of you. I was shaken during. What am I supposed to say that this amazing individual? Check her out guys.
