"For you. The aisle Asad airbase in western Iraq was the site of another rocket attack this one in retaliation to the bite Administration bombing a headquarters for a militia, Um, the Iraqi militia in Syria. On that was in retaliation for that militia firing rockets at that airbase and and others on this attack out Wednesday. One U. S contractor was killed. According to Jen, pus, AKI She said that the U. S contractor quotes suffered a cardiac episode while sheltering from the attacks and died shortly afterwards. In other words, he had a heart attack. He was probably more running and never done in 20 years, and this happened Uh, it's it's a contractor Death that someone is retired from the military, and they can barely fit in with her. Their vest. And in all, that s so it's not a casualty of the actual rocket techno. It does go down is that, um So what? What happens now is that the bite administration said we will pick and choose our time of response that the data to the White House warned that the U. S. May consider a military response to the rocket attack that hit in air base in western Iraq were American and coalition troops are housed. No one claimed responsibility for the attack, the first since the U. S struck Iran Aligned militia targets along the Iraq Syria border last week. By the way they were British. There are British at Al Assad and two Danes. So that the Danish foreign minister had to release a statement as well, then foreign minister Yet that co food said quote despicable attacks against I n Al Asad air base in Iraq are completely unacceptable. Close call. The Danish armed forces said two Danes who were at the base of the time of the attack are unharmed. Um And so was it disdain or was it disdain? Don't look at them with this thing. So the The deal is here's yourself. This works. We have to go back a little bit. The invasion of Isis into Iraq because We? We gave Isis a safe space to get away from our bombing in Syria. That was a mistake along. Nevertheless, we did it. Isis goes into Iraq because why not? No one's getting bombed there. And it was a narrow margin that Iraq was overrun by the Islamic state, but who did come to the rescue? Unfortunately, Before we did was Iran. Iran pours in with a bunch of money and they said, Hey, guys were putting the old band back together. Remember when you all banded together and we paid you and supplied you and trained you tol kill Americans? Well, now we get to kill some Sunni fundamentalists called the Islamic state so They got the old Shia band back together and basically set up a parallel army in Iraq. Um, it was a two year fight. It was a hard fight, but the Iraqi government, the elected Iraqi government. Um, uh, did turn to us and say, can you please because when, when Obama pulled all the Americans out of Iraq, the Iraqi said, Well, you know, we were just negotiating. When we said that you guys have to be responsible in our criminal courts and In all that they didn't really mean pack up and leave, but we did. So, the Iraqi said, Can we get the trainers back? Can we get actual combat units back and we need your helicopters and airplanes and old thing. And so with American air support and coordination, the Iraqi army reinvented himself from the ground up. Became far more professional, incompetent and was responsible for pushing Isis out of module is really good documentary that came out about a year ago about that really striking amazing access. Meanwhile, there's this parallel power structure. It's an alternate army and Iran is on the ground in Iraq with this Iranian backed militias of these Iranian backed militias. On Indicates to their government. Hey, there's one army for this country, were it And we really don't appreciate Iranians running around with this kind of influence, dictating how the government should should act going forward with Isis and all that. So the Iranians effectively colonized Iraq at least the Shia parts of Iraq s O We fast forward. Tonto 2021, the Iranian backed militias find it really difficult to actually operate in Iraq because the Iraqi army doesn't like them. Um and the Kurds really don't like him so they don't operate up north. And they can. They cannot operate in western Iraq, where it's heavily Shia. Andre Iraqi army is out there and present and the whole thing so they do. The next best thing going to Iran would be a bit too obvious, even though loads and loads of them go there for training. And ARN are and the whole thing. But they would be way too obvious for them to be executing combat operations from Iran, because then there'd be no deniability. What they do is they have set up headquarters just inside Syria. And so what these guys did was they as the Crow flies the border crossing position the shortest way by highway from al Assad to the Syrian border. It's about 90 Miles, and the rockets that they fired have about a 20 kilometer range. 2030 kilometer range. So what they did do was they found a way to drive into Iraq in in darkness In the dead of night, this these rockets hit like a one in number 1:30 A.m.. And they come in, and they The leave behind a truck, a rocket launching truck and they will set it up and they'll cite it out and they have their compass. They know that al Assad Is a 089 degrees magnetic from where we are on day that it's a 370 ft below us from our firing position. And so we need to the azimuth on. The Rockets needs to be this and the weather is it? They set it all up. I don't like to do that. They set it all up, and then they fired them remotely. And then they leave. And how do we know that? Because that's their M O. We saw it and I saw it in 2004 to the five and the Iraqis found it. There's footage of a burning truck out the desert. They just basically sacrificed a truck. There's famous footage from 2004. They mounted rockets on a donkey cart. Then they launch the rockets and theirs, and the pictures are of this donkey with its hair singed. So if you're smoking because it just had rockets launched off its trailer after this donkey cart. So anyway, they Get back in there other trucks and they haul ass back to Syria. Um, what they can't figure out is that they were being observed all along. I don't know why we didn't blast him the desert. No clue, but we know where they went back to know the Biden administration. Is way different than trump and that Trump would have said Why you asking me if you should retaliate? You know? Why do you wake me up at 3 A.m. Biden. He saw Obama do this for eight years. He wants a detailed memo of every single bullet fired and he wants to approve the target.

The inside story of the Iranian attack on Al Asad Airbase

"General Frank Mackenzie, commander of US forces in the Middle East, monitored the attack from his headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Walking into this small room off his main operation Center, where he could talk directly to the only two people above him in the chain of command. They bring in secretary defense and a little bit later they brought in the president to this conversation. We're listening to the reports of the missiles flying. You ever been on one like this? I've never been on one like this, where real missiles being fired at our forces and where I thought the risks were so high Iranian attack on al Assad was in retaliation for a stunning US operation. President Trump ordered six nights earlier, a drone strike, which killed Iran's most powerful general Qassim Suleimani. The blood of many Americans is on the hands of the same salamoni. He was this close to an indispensable man as you could find inside Iran, where he went violin. And death followed during the American occupation of Iraq. Sulamani had orchestrated attacks which killed more than 600. U. S troops and, according to Mackenzie, He was planning to do it again. We saw intelligence reports where the same cell Amani was moving various attacks, dreams forward against our forces in Iraq against our embassy and against other bases there. With the imminent perhaps an hour's, perhaps in days, probably not weeks. Until then, the USAID shied away from going after Sulamani for fear, killing such a high ranking government official. Would only provoke Mauritanian attacks. I never take killing anyone is a zone easy decision, but I think the risk of not acting in this case Outweigh the risks of acting So yes, I was good with the decision on January 3rd of last year on airport security camera recorded. Sulamani is arrival in Baghdad on a commercial flight from Damascus. Kensi was watching from a different angle. You have the drones overhead. Do you see him Healthy? Yes, yes. As soon Money's entourage pulled away from the plane. McKenzie gave the kill order to the commander controlling the drones. And then I said, Take your shot when you got it. Missile slammed into both vehicles simultaneously. There's no backslapping. There's no cheering because now I have to prepare to deal with the consequences. The action, General Mackenzie was sure Iran would retaliate, but he didn't know how and neither for awhile. Did the Iranians. I believe they went into a period of this organization because they had lost the officer. Who really spoke up and shaped everything up and told them what they were gonna do. So he's kind of ominous silence. It was a very ominous silence. And what was the first sign that Iran might really be thinking of her? Ballistic missile attack, they began to move their ballistic missiles. The attack was just hours away. When major Alan Johnson got the word. Iran's most powerful weapons were aiming for al Assad. My intelligence officer pulled me aside and Basically said, Sir, I've got some bad news for you. What's up? We have information that Iran is fueling 27 medium range ballistic missiles in their intention is the level this base And we may not survive. This was a completely different threat. Lieutenant Colonel Jim Garland commanded an army battalion at Al Asad. Sprawling air base about 120 miles west of Baghdad, where the U. S operated scores of helicopters, drones and other aircraft. Did the base have any defense against ballistic missiles now, sir? It was such a unprecedented threat. I don't think it was ever calculated. S o the capability to, uh, prevent a ballistic missile attack. It wasn't there. Did you have a plan for what to do? Way came up with the plan. The only real defense against ballistic missile attack is to get out of harm's way.

Members are expected to cut oil supply at a meeting in Vienna minister of state of energy affairs. Asad I'll copy said caught har- would steal attend the groups meeting on Thursday and Friday, adding that a decision to exit OPEC was not political. I think Qatar has been on the great pressure from some of its neighbors in the Gulf for some time now. So it is slightly surprising. That is pulling out then claiming told a political issue. I it strikes me can only be that peck members Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates and the fellow Arab states, but rain and Egypt have imposed a political and economic boy cut on cut har- since June twenty seventeen the accused cut har- of supporting terrorism a charge denied by Doha. Now, we have Saad Joe what professor of the Lyndon school of. Economics and political science. I senior fellow with the Middle East center. So professor Joa. What do you think Qatar want to quit OPEC at at this moment because we heard cutters? Energy ministers. Say the move is not a political. They are just trying to focus more on natural gas. What you could say what you wants to say. But this this move is boxing, long political move goes. Chillers that. Cuts rooms to give an example, the other Gulf country that they are not going to stay and does this actions on on the Bill how about for a long time this move, by the way could be them. If they think again, he moved to of leaving open, then they could take another day remove of movie and even the cons of community constant. So I think it's the bullet could move and very dangerous indication to the unity of the country. Estimator oil exporter, which leaves the alliance. Isolating caught Har what might Saudi Arabia think about is. Are there any major geopolitical consequences where going to see? Well, I think Saudi Arabia is worried about this move because oh go up not that big member of the OPEC. I mean big export volume in this in this is Asian but denies ation. So, but it could leave to other countries using this is this of basin like Ron, and this could weak and even more of especially when they feel that the oh the decision is in decisions in OB of them Nate by those Abia by. Imbalance by the unite. Now, it's being argue the move by Katara doesn't have much effect on OPEC's influence, but still this country has been a member of OPEC for fifty seven years. So what could be the implication of this move on OPEC and also the general world oil market. As I said, it's not a general in his because the share cut that husband in this action plan is not that big. But as I said, it could lead to other countries to leave the Belgian this happened in two thousand eight degrees here. Left of denies Asian although came by to to all day should again. But it's good to something like that. And this good. I've been this could endanger the unity of the addition also that ten members producing countries have not I've done member of OPEC who are cooperating with up when they see such who maybe they decide not to anymore with any reduction of Oriel ex.

"And yeah, I'm I'm really, really excited to actually see the final product and get them in everyone's hands because that's what's been on my mind lately. It's kind of stressful. Yeah, I have a lot to oversee and his backers who are like, you know, waiting. So like that weighs on me like, but, hey, I'm, I'm excited. I'm confident I've done this before. I know what a much much more prepared this time around than there was last around. The infrastructure is much stronger this time around. So yeah, it's I have a great feeling about it. You know, it's just going through all those baby steps and getting everything ready to go. And how did you. Forgot if I read it or not, but how did you design the first mint in the in the second? Yes, I actually did designed it myself. It was a collaboration. I found. I met the designer and I saw this deck. He has signed, and I love Zion so much that I acquired from said, hey, I want to produce a deck like I'd never produced a deck before, like I wanted to produce a deck for many, many years, but I had never come across designed light so much that I wanted to produce myself. It's a lot of work to produce a deck. But when they saw Zein I was like this one and he he had this design which is great, but he didn't have the audience. He didn't have the customer base so he wasn't really in a position to produce himself. So he just like produce a couple of for himself or some people or a. Yeah, he had like a prototype. Okay. Yeah. And he had some mockups like digital mockups, but I said, hey, let me acquire this design from you. I'll do a big. I'll make this deck a worldwide phenomenon and like, yeah, actually ended up happening. It's great now. Okay. Is it coming back? How can I ever get that? Can't well the original ones you can, but minced to like is going to be available. I say this very ever planning and come bring him back. They'll mint one ever. Again, I may go. Those decks won't come back now. Maybe I'll use the similar color schemes in the future in the future additions, but it'll be a completely different deck. So that's another aspect of this is that the decks theft produce. They've become very collectible. So like the original decks, they really sold for ten dollars. But if you go on EBay now, yeah, they're just the regular ones or selling for fifty. And then there was a limited edition deck sold during that first Kickstarter project golden black was, yeah, it was golden. Black is called a limited edition minced deck. It was selling for fifteen dollars saying the Kickstarter. If you go on EBay now sells for two hundred dollars, three hundred dollars sometimes per deck, which is insane. See, I'm those decks definitely won't come back like they're highly collectible items. They're limited editions that won't be reprinted. But you know this minced designed patterns kind of conic now and that's gonna live on a little bit. You know, it's not going to be the same as the original mantra addition Deccan and then meant to is there the cherry look right? Isn't that? Yeah, we'll do so minced to introduce a few new flavors and a few design updates to the mid sign. So the Dow this, the blueberry, oh cucumber. I'll show you some pictures of missed. I thought I'd just only saw the cherry thing. Yeah. Oh, that's another deck that I'm selling didn't produce that one o. Oh, I do sell the cherry casino playing cards which are also very popular. Fifty cards is one of the main authorized retailers for that deck, but meant is the first designed I'm actually producing and I see that's why. I remember like you were going to have more flavors and I was I was looking forward to me somehow, maybe missed it. Yeah, yeah, no, it's it's very recent, like it just happened. Wow. So the Kickstarter is over now. So they're not technically available at the moment. But once they're produced, then I'll have some extra inventory to sell. But every time I do a Kickstarter project, I always release some kick starter exclusive items that are only available to the backers for the project. So I did that once again for this project, the frost meant decks is with, I'm calling him and those won't be available again. Wow, that's exciting. Second second Kickstarter. Huge better than before. Yeah, congratulations. Thank you. Appreciate them ham. Okay..

"So I was like obsessed with this game in college, Diablo twos, the second one, and in the game, there was like a built in the Konami pissed off of like digital gold items that you could get. So I actually like my initial business training, so to speak occurred through this video game. And I used my my duty. Title currency in this video game to pay designer white met through the game to build a logo for me. So I paid like a thousand gold. Which on those probably like to two dollars on an end. Wasn't you've after playing longtime used as you've collected? I made a lot of that was a very wealthy in that game. Of like if they're really into the game, they, they will literally do work for digital currency. Yes. Great, yeah. So there was there was like a whole market built inside this game where you could trade gold for item to trade gold for services. I was a part of a forum that was attached to take game, and you know, that's where a lot of these transactions will take place. So, yeah, I, I get college guys. These games with digital currency, you'll you'll know. Exactly. So that's how I got my logo. I paid using digital golden video game and ended up being amazing logo and I'm still using eight years later. That's great. Yeah, I would have never guessed. Yeah. I should probably reach out to the guy and be like, yo, like you're doing great work. Thank you. That's cool. Well. Okay. And what about maybe this is too similar to the other mistakes, but what do you think is the biggest waste of time running a business. Biggest waste of time. Shouldn't do if you're running a business that you've come across? Honestly, I think the answer really depends so much on a type of business that we're talking about here. I guess for me like what's been the biggest waste of time. And I mean, probably like trying to fulfill orders myself. I mentioned before that was pretty big time in Sumer, but. I'm hesitant to label anything really aware of time because if you're spending time in a way that isn't the most productive will you're learning at least. So like I, I can't really pinpoint any areas where I felt like I've wasted time. I think over the years I've learned what tasks or what you know, things that I could do to spend time most effectively. And I think that is planning like these big Kickstarter projects. Those tend to get the biggest return on investment terms of my time in my resources content as great retron investment, creating a great piece of content can generate. A lot of us in traffic years after the video has been published building systems that help manage and take care of some of these smaller daunting tasks like billing that systems a very valuable use of time. But yeah, I think before you realize things you do have to quote unquote waste time doing those lesser meaningful tasks. But then you figure out. And speaking of kick starter, what are I've never, I've I've edited video for some kick starves before made them some good money actually. Yeah, but I never did the campaign and did all that other work. Yeah, and I see my future starting one perhaps for a couple endeavors. Yeah. So what advice would thoughts or a couple must I should be wherever yes, kick Kickstarter is an amazing, amazing platform for it can be, you know, ic- some projects that are terrible. And then you have some projects who never even follow through on what their project was. But you know, it's amazing platform for those who use it effectively. So I guess for those who may be aren't hundred percent familiar with Kickstarter. Essentially, it's a crowd funding platform, and with that is is basically it's a community where if your project creator, if there's some project out there that you really want to do that you really want to execute, but you need support..

"What about some of the biggest mistakes during this process of growing the business? Maybe some some valuable. On. Think them realizing now is probably should've tried to recruit other people to help to help out with the business earlier because for a long long time. And even now it's largely a one man show, but I've started to now delegate in bring in people who can help with different aspects of bins. I found that it can be incredibly helpful and it can help me focus on the big picture stuff. The stuff that really matters like I wanna work on the business instead of inside of the business. That makes sense. Yeah. So biggest mistake would be like, I sometimes I wish like maybe maybe two years ago or maybe a while ago, I should have started finding the right people to connect with and into line with, and you know, and bring them on board and and they did. I did dabble in that by probably didn't pursue as strongly as I should have, but that's what I'm doing now in finding it to be a beneficial. Great. Yeah, I. Agree, it's partnership. You can do so much more than just even the great individual and you have all the passionate s- it can be, like you said, daunting, draining down and then you can't put your efforts elsewhere. The larger. Yeah, yeah. And what about advice for someone wanting to start in entrepreneurship of their own or become an entrepreneur? If they're just starting out what some things they should consider questions they should ask themselves? Yeah. I think there's definitely a lot of appeal in entrepeneurship nowadays. I think a lot of people are kind of chasing the potential lifestyle could come with it, and it makes sense like it's a pretty cool lifestyle if you're able to attain it. But you know, it's, it's, it's not an easy game like it takes a lot of focus about persistence of patients. So I guess my advice would be, you know, if you're gonna start a venture of some sort in entrepreneurship be up to make sure it's something that you genuinely like really like, and you can see yourself doing for years something that you can spend time every day on. And ideally it's not gonna feel like work for you. I delete something that you know it's a you wanna do and then eventually if you end up getting paid for it. Awesome, right. That's the best case scenario. But yeah, just expect to have, you know, by the patients because it takes time to build something to build something meaningful takes a lot of time. But yeah, just keep researching. Keep studying, keep executing, like I know a lot of people were into entrepreneurship. They have all these amazing ideas and it seems like they have the right vibe of energy, but they, they don't execute. They don't actually make move. They don't pull any triggers and you know it's hard to do those things. It's hard to start, but you have to and even if you don't feel completely one hundred percent ready in like maybe you don't have the exact equipment that you wanna have. Maybe you're DEA isn't completely fleshed out. It's better to start anyways, and you'll figure that out as you go along and you'll slowly improve your whole process. But yeah, just just getting started. Getting started is the hardest part is the most important part. I agree. Yeah. Just jump jump out of the train China to rule. Yeah. Yeah. Who will had wanted to ask you the logo you have? I've loved by the way. Okay. Red, I. How did that? Did you. Help design it. Did you hire someone? It's actually pretty funny that logo is been the same since the very beginning. It's like eight years old. I've thought about getting update bound the kasha. It's just become like an iconic thing in the way that came about is kind of kind of random. I didn't really have money to spend on logo at the time like because early early days with two cars before it was making any money or anything. So I used to play this video game. I was kind of obsessed with it called Diablo two. Have you heard of the? It's a game that blizzard made would still be like it's still out there, but blizzard as damn company that makes warcraft and over watching..

"Yeah. I mean, I think if I had more time to think about that and I might be able to give you a better answer. But at the top of my head right now, I would say I think about timing Allott and. You know, just trying not to get burnt out. So like understanding myself and how I operate to avoid just any stages of, you know. Not being productive and whatnot. Yeah, I, I think about consistency a lot. I, I think one thing that I did, I don't know. I don't know if consider this a small thing, but it definitely had a big impact. I built my business in my brand in the very lean way. What I mean by that is I made sure that I built it in a way that didn't require too much day to day operational maintenance and by doing so, I was able to focus on the big picture. I was able to stay consistent with the content and you run the shop. You know, I implemented some pretty powerful software on the back end of things in the shop that helps it runs smoothly. These are like small things that. You know that they go a long way, so sting lean. That's cool overhead. Yeah, low overhead. I think mistake that lot of people make when trying to get into entrepreneurship or just trying to make money online or whatever they, they grow too fast. Almost they can't sustain it. They don't have infrastructure in place to maintain the operations. So it's it's better to stay super, super lean to minimize the moving parts and and just stay focused on doing a few things really. Well, can you name some can do a little tech, talk of the stuff behind the website that makes it smooth recommendations or what have you found out? Yeah. I mean, I've, I've dabbled with a few different platforms to run the business right now like the the businesses running on a few different platforms, those who are interested in the Texan of things. So I've got, I'm using WordPress, which is a popular content. System to handle all of the content that's hosted on the site. I've using shop affi- to power the shop in there. I dabbled.

"I'm glad I'm glad to getting good Qatar. Qatar. Oh, yeah. I mean, that's that's kind of where we're now. It's been, I guess, almost how long has it been eight years now? Almost seven, eight years, but it's it's exciting to think about all the different ways that it's grown e. When did you or was there moment when you really you transferred in into how can I put this? You transferred from maybe other, so regular sources of income? I wanna say this, yes. And you like you actually the well, I can make enough revenue from my company now. I don't have to take side work with do so. Yeah. Yeah. So I quit my job and engineering in, gosh, what year was I think it was two thousand fourteen I wanna say. So that was like a couple years after I'd been doing YouTube, I realized like, okay, like I don't if I play my cards, right? If I make the right moves, I don't need my day job anymore. So I got to the point where I was able to pay. My living expenses went not just. Through the online revenue was making through fifty cars, and it just occurred to me that, hey, will if I spend all this time than spending at my day job instead invest integer cards, like I can grow this into even bigger bins, I won't. I won't need, you know the salary anymore. And so it's way did in working out was a decision that was you were nervous about doing or. Yeah, you know, I was like, I had a feeling he was going to happen eventually, like I wanted to tap in for a while, but I was nervous about finding the right time and I was nervous about, you know, like what? If it doesn't work out or like what? If you know I ended up, you know, bringing a lot of financial stress on myself, but I waited, I waited a long time. I waited to a point where I felt safe where I felt like it wasn't too too risky. I waited till I had a large loyal audience. I waited till I was able to like pay my living expenses just through. Do you know the passive revenues making? So I felt safe, but it was still a stressful time. It was still a big deal. Yeah, still definitely something Zayed. They're nervous. And now how did you manage time if you were working where you working fulltime? Like most of the time when you were developing fifty two cards, you're working fulltime engineering or. Yeah. How did you handle and manage manage that? Yeah. I mean, it was this, you know, with with some difficulty for sure. I was spending all day. It was a fulltime job, you know, in the lab and then sharing side of things. And then, yeah, I would come home and I would try to squeeze in at least a few more hours before going to sleep just working on the side project because I wanted us, I'd product to be the main thing, but it just had to be in a certain place before I could make a happen. So yeah, I would try to, you know, try to bounce thou and just the, you know, put some time aside for when I got home to to work on this. The second job essentially. Did you didn't turn down a lot of social life to like really hit? No. Yeah. No, I definitely. I think nationally am kind of an introverted guy. So maybe that even plates, my was It kind was of. kind of an advantage for me that like I had extra time by myself where I could invest it into something, you know, productive and useful. But yeah, I mean, I definitely did sacrifice certain social social life style, you know, in order to pull that time to the business. Glad I did. You know, definitely worked out for the best. During, let's see during the whole fifty two cards production and the business. What are some of the small things that you've done or if you realize them that have really given you the best results. Small things that have produced the biggest results and it could be for just the business running smooth smoother than before it could be. I don't know creating the next mint deck of cards..

"Where would you do when you? How did you celebrate. I don't know if I actually celebrate. I remember coming home from work that day and seeing my inbox flooded because I used to get like Email vacations every time. So when you subscribe to my channel and in my inboxes flooded, like one hundred hundred emails, which was like a big deal back then, like right after I won. And that was really exciting for me. I remember that it's like, wow, something's happening. This is cool. And now from that fifty two cards developed, can you give us a rundown of what that is and. Yeah. So it's kind of transcended in expanded, I should say into a number of different areas. So it started out as the YouTube channel where I would teach live hand and magic in cartridge and things like that. But then as I mentioned early built a website off of it in eventually started, I y created like an online course, you know. So YouTube has a lot of, you know, the fifty two panel bunch of free resources available by creating a course for those of the more dedicated students who wanted to invest a bit more and get more comprehensive resource that was neatly organized structured. So I did that. And that was like my first venture into the business side of things. There was a Kickstarter project really. Well. I raised money for thirty days to fundraise the the money needed to produce a project such as that it did super well blew past the funding goal. And then once the happened, I realized like, oh, snap, this is. Like there's a career in this. This is like if I do it right, I can build a long term, sustainable and successful business off of this. The student base of the have off of this audience of the half. So from there, I, I built an online shop selling a variety of things specializing.

"Marketing, product development branding, just lifestyle design is something that I think a lot about, you know, just I like to listen to talks much about psychology. Like I mentioned in all these different areas that are related to what they do, but are certainly outside of the realm of magic. Nice. That's cool. I do will so many things that the knee. Need to be researched. Yeah, on c. researching like when my favorite things really. Yeah, that's that's probably what I spend the most time on. Would you what are your favorite sources for that other so many like on read it? There's a subway that for pretty much any topic you could possibly imagine. So if I find in Utah them curious about, sometimes I'll go there because I like hearing voices from regular or quote, unquote, ordinary people rather than established the editorials and whatnot, be honestly, it depends on what I'm researching. I'd like to read. I like to audio books. YouTube is probably not probably is the greatest resource in the world for learning just about anything so watching YouTube videos. But yeah, mo- most of my resources would be online. I don't do much. I do read some physical books but most of its own line. Great. And as far as creativity, what does that mean to you? Creativity. I guess if I had to define creativity, I would say it's a. Gosh, that's that's actually pretty difficult. No, I would say it's a, you know, coming up with new ideas and you know, manifesting them in training them into a reality. You know, it's, you know, expressing yourself in in ways that maybe you haven't before it's finding new ways of communicating certain things that you find to be important. Yeah, I'll stick with that one. And what have you ever self examined what you do to get in such a good creative groove? Is there any setting or anything you do any rituals that you partake in. Honestly, I, when I get into the zone, when do they do? It's actually pretty rare that I think of it as creativity. Although it is I, you know, I focus on achieving a level of like productivity, and I've been thinking about the concept of flow states a lot lately. Are you familiar like being in flow? Yes. What they say is what they call it. So I guess you could frame that has also being a state of creativity at somewhat similar. But yeah, I mean, I am absolutely trying to maximize amount of time I spend inflow in to do that. Yeah, I think the key is that whatever task you have in front of you wherever you're working on, it can't be so challenging that it's turns you it makes you wanna stop in the camp so easy to just bores you. It's finding things to do in life that strike that balance. And once you hit that balance in its both intriguing get somewhat challenging but interesting thin. You reach the state of flow where you could spend hours and hours doing whatever that thing is in doesn't. Feel like you're working. It doesn't feel like you're doing tedious. You're just living very naturally. You're being productive and you're making good things happen. So yeah, it's just getting into that state of flow in, you know, I, I'm still trying to figure out the complete answer, but you know, I, I've noticed a few things about myself is like my environment definitely matters a lot. So like there's certain things I'll do like before work or before I set out to do some kind of task. I take a look around in my vitamin. I try and make sure it's clean, not cluttered because if environments cluttered by mind ends up getting cluttered or sometimes I'll just bounce. I'll go to like a coffee shop, which is the good ambience scored five in the, I'll try to get into flow state there. The, I have noticed a pretty profound impact the environment hands on my mental state in my ability to get into a flow state. Yeah. And how did you start becoming aware of flow state in win was long time. It was actually pretty reasonable. I think, intuitively, I. I was familiar and I understood the concept of flow. I never really find the language for insult. Honestly, just a couple months ago. I was watching the Joe Rogan podcast and this there's this guy on there who speaking very eloquently about the concept of a flow state..

"His recent Kickstarter campaign meant to has become one of the most successful projects in playing card history. In this episode, we talk strategies as he transitioned and left his career as an engineer to a fulltime entrepreneur, his states of flow and how video games led to his current iconic company logo. We do geek out about magic a lot. In this episode, I felt a little excited as I always do when speaking or practicing the art of magic. However, we discuss a lot more and uncover some techniques and mindsets that Assad has used to allow him to run a successful company that he cares about as well as. Insistent productive lifestyle. And now please take a listen and enjoy this long-awaited conversation with Assad Chowdhry. Thank you for being on the show thing happy to be here. Okay. In a few words, who are you? How are you and what's the meaning of life? Meaning of life's happy. I didn't realize it was going to start off with such a question. Who am I? My name's Asad Chowdhury. Was, how are you? How am I? I'm doing good. It is a, it's Thursday, right? Yeah. It's been a pretty good Thursday of us, far productive and our children's. That's pretty cool. And what is the meaning of life? You know, I'm still trying to figure that out for myself. I'm afraid that if I tried to give you an answer right now, I probably wouldn't be pretty good one. That's me again, like five years and maybe maybe I'll be able to hook you up. Hopefully it'd be the same same response because we always want to not know. I think that's the thing. I think that's part of the appeal of all this. We're all just trying to figure that out. And guess if he not much that ruins the the essence of it. Well, we're gonna talk about some magic, of course before that I wanted to ask you, is there anything new or interesting that you've come across this last year outside of magic. Yeah, absolutely. I studied in research a lot of things outside of magic. Honestly, like where I'm currently at in life, I probably spend more time researching things that aren't magically than our. Because I, I've kind of pivoted in sort of way. Whereas before I was almost solely focused on the learning and teaching magic. But now like I run, I run a business online business and the skill set to to operate in grow businesses very different completely different from the skills get involved in being a magician. So yeah, I in the last year I've learned a lot in studied a lot about just entrepreneurship in general.
