"We know that's bullshit right. This whole thing is a a sieve cash distribution vehicle trying to get the money to the players right. That's that's all.

I think i love it. It's a problem at all. yeah. I'm like it's yeah it's like there should be. My my argument would be if you wanna make the regular season more than truly make it feel like the playoffs. Then give the guys make these three weeks one. Big and there's there's a cut so so next year is what memphis memphis and then bmw in wilmington and then tour championship. And so you do you do it with a cut but you do it with you. Seat it based on the regular season and and and you make the regular season means something going back to roms comments. Now he's like. hey. I don't think it's right that somebody can parachute in play really well two out of three weeks in the playoffs and win this thing which you can argue other way of that but you can kind of get a kind of do the best of both worlds. If you said all right your number one coming in the fedex cup playoffs.

"The tournament. This weekend at gives valley the bmw championship. But before we get to tyler and then we must give you eli all right so my i guess loan bat but it's there's a couple of them with it the player. I'm betting on this weekend this week. We're a maccarone jimmy. Mcilroy over about rivers plus twenty five hundred back oi top ten. Well that's each way to rivers and rory top ten at plus two hundred look at the way he's played over the last twelve rounds he's third degreen third in ball striking fourth in off the sea. The approach could be a little better just outside the top twenty obviously around the green putting especially putting below the top forty where he ranks right now. So that's concerning but again putting out really metric you will carry over week to week. You've finished a little bit over the weekend. At the northern trust shooting seventy and a sixty six. So i i hope that he bounces back a little bit just with the putter and again. If if he's bombs away at this golf course joe worked out at least two catan. Keep things within the top ten so mcelroy for me outright and top ten okay so rory mcilroy eli on the roaring train. James mazzola was on the show yesterday. He also likes rory spoiler alert. I probably royal little villa. Give you my golf. That's momentarily but we gotta find out here. What let's let's hold cannon tyler here rick vicks ready to come on big trucks.

But this is going to be a bombers course. He's i in driving distance. Person strokes games off the tee he. He's just too good to pass up at these odds so grab. I grabbed him at twenty. Two to one. I still recommend grabbing him. A twenty two one there and then brooks tepco twenty five to one right now. He has six top six finishes over his last twelve starts. He's always there when the big dogs play and his metrics fit perfectly for this course as well so those are the guys on the upper side. And then i got four longshots where you guys scotty shuffler. Plus three thousand russell henley plus sixty five hundred walking neiman plus six thousand and jason coke racket plus eight thousand out of that group. I love neiman. This week i.

"I mean he finished thirty first in the in northern trust. Do you think there's any other longshots can really compete going into the bmw tournament you know. Is they winners. Typically come from like that fifty or lower range and you know even female being inflated you know he has all the talent in the world. I guess talent of any of those guys in the top of the market so i you know as long as i'm gonna go. I'm not gonna jump in anywhere but we're looking for you. Know maybe some guys maxine our range of if you know hall keys you can win. A golf tournament does not the for. That's the only thing he's never went on tour but he's the same kinda guy see now and some both sukkur. He's as long as his earned super. Well if you're giving me some slow From so green. It's going to help with his putting if anything is possible. Pocket he winning a non far is possible. I can see behind my race. I always you know. Don't check the box because he's never ability to win. Okay he's the guy that i'll have a little bit slow even just a top center and you wanna go down a little further down the word cameron. Golly you're gonna get him at a top pricing plus three hundred plus you hundred not probably to win. But a long shot to be able to compete. He was right there You know i'd be in on the monday finish. Plays absolutely terrible. so he's got completely forgotten. We didn't get any shot. But he's got about twenty bet and who could sneak in there must about quite well enough to win But the guy wants from exposure to a couple more questions here at the great james mazzola on twitter at j. j. d. of the four profit. Podcast acosta's cody decker. You better you bet that q. L. on a tuesday jayme as what about some head to head matchups. You're eyeing for this weekend at the bmw. Yeah you know. I think we're last week. I was a little bit of a wait and see on gross. And i i just don't think he's into it. What monday round. He completely gave up and he looked like he didn't wanna be there. He's fifteen fifteen to seventeen going into the going into this week. Which is pretty far back without a win at the it's really compete for the final phase cup championship. So i'm just a full on. Bros it just so happens. He's not two thousand. I mentioned prior embracing glory. So you're probably not anywhere from my name is look at teams muslim thirty guys. I really do like those through this week and bros just seem to have that. I don't give heck and going on anymore. So he's been it's not a major right so we're gonna do the full on brucie and the other guy i just. I really don't understand what what is. His name is like right now. Is dustin johnson missing. The cut last week lost jobs approach. off the tee which is insane. Future t- and then around the greens. He did his drivers so that account or a little bit off the team but he was three when he hits the through this as far most the field so has missed. Tubas last three cuts including a three open. This guy just seems like he's just ready for this season to get over with how that season and start fresh next year. So i'm going to be fading him with a couple of guys and i loved and zander and work our very consistent golfers. So yeah that's what we like to see In those term to head guys who have that high floor against egypt who you know. Clearly we saw. We saw the floor last week missing to cut.

"Jecklin hide. A lot of these golfers were this year like destiny. Make sense like max homeless thirtieth like what was the last he played good at the genesis. Do you think he got the full five hundred points when the team with cancer just two fifty split split it. I think you should split it actually. I think that's fair. Yeah do do they do that or they. I think they got. I mean he's got a thousand points the full five hundred. That's that's kind of a little shaky. But i mean look at this do nazon. Eighteenth like a good man. He's playing fine females. And i now look at it fucking patrick kelly with steak win at twenty three hundred boo. I want him to flame out this weekend. Well next week. I'll come beautiful. Mind how i read you. The fax cup playoffs Manifesto next week. It's it's evolved actually by like a different angle shot. That i didn't like i can't fix that this year. We'll talk about next thing. We'll save when i start randomly. How terrible this format is to champion about big joke. it is. That's how they weren't but until then let's up about the bmw case valley golf club so so the northern trust that was alternating between boston. New york city. Now's gonna go over to memphis permanently. This one though is still going to rotate around the country. The bmw typically have been kind of mid western focus like its allies chicago clubs gotha colorado couple times. I think a couple of michigan maybe. And then they've gone around the maryland area too and this one's in maryland outside baltimore and owings mills at kay's valley golf clubs so it opened in nineteen ninety-one. It's a tom fazio. And it's it's strange like for years. Like the only fazio golf courses on the pga tour were the corrales went to canada and quail hollow and tozzi like he's made like courses. Yeah brazilian courses but only to a now this year. This'll be the sixth time. We've gone on five zero design. Like i know if you like like he must've just weasel his way in after all these one offs of events that got canceled. The canadian cancel all. Why don't you come down to the palmetto. All the cj cup of can't go to can't go to korea shadow creek by the way both of those courses fucking awesome. They're awesome because the kasumigaseki very of this and then actually this year. Cj cubs go to another fazio in las vegas so he just cleaning up so this will be the sixth time this year. They were played at a fazio. So listen like like foss a lot of designs. it's got its ups and downs ups. I i mean case. Valley is just an immaculate condition. I mean it. Seems like all the private tom fazio courses that they plan the pga tour. They're great like shadow creek. I mean just luxurious like great pristine conditions quayle house the same way kasumigaseki that was in grave condition and caves valleys. No exception and it's got six hundred members. They all got deep pockets. It's bent grass. Greens bent grass fairways. Lush ri- gra ryegrass rough. The greens grow pretty fast. They're pretty undulated to like. This is going to be an all world like playing surface for these guys so so question about that. I think the one difference though is some of the land like one of the crista fasel is. He tends to take a piece property where there shouldn't be a golf course and i guys it turns it into it so like like shower chris example. That's a desert wasteland. A turn into this like you know..

Sarah Turney of 'Voices for Justice' on Ethics in True Crime Podcasting
"It was groups gathering to watch people burned at the stake during the salem witch trials or millions of people watching making a murderer on net flicks. We're drawn to these stories and everyone has their own reasons. Why maybe it's pure curiosity. Maybe you want to learn something from these experiences. You can avoid them yourself. Maybe one help or maybe you just how big this genre is and want to cash in. I'm not saying. I think it's right or ethical but this is and has been our reality for centuries we may think we've evolved past it but we really haven't now believe it or not. I really don't care about your intentions in this space because after trying to bet trying my best to convert people away from the dark side if you will. I learned the intentions are not something i can change if you can hear my story if you can see other families of victims on the internet begging for help and you don't care that something inside of you that i will not be able to change today but the thing with intentions is you may feel like they're this deep dark secret inside of you but they will come to the surface so no matter your intentions with true crime content. You you make just remember that a good deal of your audience will most likely see right through your work to those intentions in. My advice is to respect your audience by being honest with them. Are you doing tour for a show. Just you can buy a new car awesome. Let your audience know that. I bet most of them will be thrilled for you. What they will be thrilled about is if you say that you're in this to help the victims and the families but then you only help yourself and before you know it. You're on instagram with your new. Bmw they're gonna see right through that now. A great way to avoid all this headache is to actually just have good intentions with your work. That doesn't mean you have to work yourself to the bone and donate every dollar to charity. That's not what i'm saying. What i'm saying is that if you don't have good intentions in this space be ready for a lot of people to call you out on

"bmw" Discussed on Social Minds - Social Media Marketing Answered
"That topic our podcast very high level. So i think they're day wanna go into in a similar direct. Yeah definitely it's for us. It's a maya zone and and we wanna keep getting better and go one step further even some eighty ep vague sites. It avai excites able comes next too much. I think it's something that almost any brand oversee your competitors are going. Be so keenum. What you're dying but if anyone listening. I think it's something any brand can. can take landings from the fact that you guys have created something fictional from scratch and redefined branded content in the price. I think we've seen the value of brandi content increase in our industry especially the last couple of years and that going from like no long form series. Two people are to be a little bit more creative with that. Making this takes it to the next level. So i'd love to see more runs exploring that definitely up to completely agree aviv. There and then talk more. Generally as suppose about the future of stories have input brands and inside to this of i think for evil agree in social media. We've seen a lot of debate around storytelling. And how you tell stories because of the limitations of having to get the attention really fast and i to get the point across i guess in the podcast space. It's completely different. Because you can build a world more and take that more traditional reu i mean what do you think is going to be. The future storytelling for brands. And now it's quite big. Question believed the huge potential in audio storytelling. And then i think the next era will to include the the audience interactivity. And of course we've been watching snatch yeah sounds just saying and we've been talking about shaping your own kind of story young not quite there yet. Think voice definitely issues thing for for the proconsul future for bmw as a brand. Actually we have a quite long history of storytelling so He made movies. And the i don't know everything and We clearly continuing this past and exploring new innovative formats such as an audio voice games. I think if you you just have to exploit the possibilities of each channel what is possible and really understand The target will on channel. And what really brings added value and storytelling is.
"bmw" Discussed on Social Minds - Social Media Marketing Answered
"Branded. Podcast should be. i personally. Think that Brands should focus on the target group. And what really brings added value to them in the right time the right situation protests like a perfect medium for that so of course aligned with the values of the brand for us actually remain. Kp i of the podcast is numb. Time spent with the brand. We maybe do not reach as many people as via instagram or facebook but we reach people with high interest and they spend very long time with the brand which just a small quick like But they stay with us twenty minutes for one episode 'em so it's more about quality than quantity for us and i think that's quite important and also coming bed. What what. Theo said before our podcast gave him like trust. That bmw is knowing what to do in the future or yeah has covered. Let's say an and that's what we wanted so to give positive emotions in positive values to achieve that there were two prepositions the the first one whilst we want two hundred percent entertain the audience and get rid of everything that's not entertaining and the second aspect on this in my opinion something that a lot of friends do wrong right now. Only high quantity productions can make it in the future. That's my opinion because what's happening right now with podcasts. What we saw with the rest of social media for brands like ten years ago. Everybody's feuds like that can easily do podcast just because the nephew of the marketing manager hosted a couple session and at the same time we've got huge. Chaos like spotify that flooding the market with top tier formats and then. We got brands left. W with dedicated offers tragedies and put it out of assets into producing quality content. So i think brands better sound amazing. Little just justice silent. And don't do podcast vanessa. Vivid interesting point and not something that she full of. Ben buffing rightly are getting to a point where the is growing gap maybe in quality between like you said major brands creating all the strategies and those not necessarily doing that but i want to talk about marketing as well and especially marketing hit nautilus. Because it's i suppose the challenges. You have such an innovative podcast. How do you market that in an innovative way. So it's just wondering if you could tell us a little bit about what. The marketing strategy was forgetting hitting novels. Heard and how that differed from promoting changing lanes for changing lanes. I'm eh said in the beginning. It's easier because we target bmw fans and mobility friends and Yeah our home base. Let's say and we can reach them via owned channels that for with a little bit different because we the goal was to also engage in reach new target goals. And that makes it difficult besides are of course we pushed it on our own channels but we used Paid media and and pr to promoted to reach beyond the bmw. Bubble am however at big never. Such say was word of mouth so people just loft what we created and they told their friends about it and and that was exactly our go that we create create something that goods that could good of a quality and special events. People recommend that to their friends again in quantity is the best marketing. Somebody at at epa podcasts hearted liked it and put it into the recommendations and that's when we started topping the charts in over twenty countries because the audience found out about it and many many people around the world really enjoyed it and spend time there so qualities also a good thing to have definitely and then of course you guys go picked up for the at rakes. Podcast of the year. Awards twenty twenty one. Best branded podcast. Which is how we came to find out about you and have you enhanced so. Yeah it's it's it's a cycle. I mean juices tonight. Perhaps i'll let you kick off with this band but how you think this hyper massive storytelling that you guys have sought to carve out and we'll hopefully become a little bit more popular in the coming years how that will impact marketing and will it cole. Full in more at a massive marketing. I think so. I'm quite sure about it because to me as a creative. It's super interesting when you just have a look at what being. Ww got to farmers that are completely different. Both make hundred percent cents in this just typically is back and i think every brand has stories to tell them we just need to to find them to write them to develop them and to bring them to life and if they can afford it they should consider audio as part of the marketing mix of for sure no police as other spoken about that fixed tribe and the fact that generally i think like this would make a great feature film. I'd love to see as well and but maybe it doesn't need to because like you said the audio side of it is so special this give you guys an opportunity to really big because it is a fantastic casting just to say that this is a real milestone summit is changed the game when it comes to experimental branded content like we said it's award winning and i don't think either us evil myself can think of anything quite like this. I'm very keen to know. What your competitors always probably fake. Now that they see the thinking right okay yeah. At least that was our goal to create something Take a game changer. And i also heard voice instead their competitors of ours. Who are really liked discussing.
Tesla Rumors: Model Y, China, Suppliers Plus Plaid Updates
"Everybody rob our here. Welcome back to tesla daily. Hope everybody had a great weekend. We are now back to the normal format and today. We're going to be discussing some news. On tesla out of china we've also got an update on a model y both pricing and demand news on bitcoin from ulan. Musk couple updates on the plan model. S a price target lowering from canaccord genuity and a couple of other pieces of news as well decent. Start of the week. Four tesla stock finishing up one point three percent today to six hundred seventeen dollars. Sixty nine cents. That compared to the nasdaq up. Three quarters of a percent so pretty good mackerel tail wind today for stocks like tesla art will start off in china today. We've got a few pieces of news. Some rumors some clarifications to make i is an update from a chinese tech supplier name to opo they supply in addition to tesla. Major automakers like volkswagen gm via chrysler. Bmw et cetera. And i believe this. Update that i i saw shared out on twitter by rafer tesla was an update from an investor. Call and it looks to me like in a question and answer portion of the call. Tessa was brought up. Or at least. I think that is the inference from context clues and unfortunately this is translated. I don't have a really good insight into the context provided but they are referred to here as company anyway. The translated question reads quote. There are many negative news about company. A in the market recently. How about the company's order situation and quote with translated answer reading quote the company strictly abides by the customer's confidentiality requirements. It is inconvenient to disclose. Please understand what i want to say is in the process of cooperating with customers. We deeply realized that all things done by company or correct including product positioning. Rnd manufacturing supplier management quality marketing etc are all very correct other cars. There is a gap of at least five years between companies at noon. We saw two hundred and forty percent increase in sales of company in europe and may rapid growth. The emergence and growth of new species will have problems of this kind which are also short lived. We can't just look at the appearance. We are very optimistic. And the current orders are normal and
How Software Is Eating the Car
"I saw an article on the i tripoli spectrum which is their magazine by robert charette how software is eating the car the trend toward self driving an electric vehicles ed hundreds of millions of lines of code two cars can the auto industry cope. Just put it in perspective. Hundreds of millions of lines of code. That's how many lines of code there are in windows. it's that it's on. that level of sophistication. I'm sure i've been talking about this all along. But it's kind of stunning and it's relevant right now because it according to analysts. The chip shortage global chip shortage is being felt everywhere but it's especially being felt in kars four point one million autos won't be made this year because they can't get the chips that's a lot. Ten years ago only only fancy cars had microprocessor control units. Today fancy fancy. Cars like the bmw. Seven series may contain one hundred fifty electronic control units pickup trucks like the ford f. One fifty one hundred fifty million lines of code as of twenty seventeen. Some forty percent of the cost of a new car can be attributed to semi conductors. The cost is doubled in ten years and they think by By the end of this decade. It'll be fifty percent. Each new car today has about six hundred dollars semi conductors. Three thousand chips in it. So it's no surprise. I mean your steering is controlled by a chip. The the doors windows the mirrors the seats the climate control of course the anti-theft system the kilos entry system even the steering column as a computer on.
The Irresistible Charm of The "Family Factor"
"The first thing. I want to talk about is. It's actually a a piece. That was put out by credit. Suisse maybe four years ago. Yeah four years ago. Twenty seventeen and it's called the irresistible. Charm of the family factor. The family factor is just the fact that as they point out in the report family owned companies tend to outperform. The non family owned companies in their peer group and this it holds true. It's like all regions all sectors all different sizes big cap small mid cap cap. Everything in between and they say this was written in two thousand seventeen. They said over the last decade. The annual return generated by family owned companies was on average five percent higher than average annual return. That's a lot man. that's a lot. The difference between like twelve percent a year and seventeen percent year. Just say is a lot and so they're they have what credit suisse caused the family. One thousand apparently they have an index or a list of these of thousand of these companies and they started out the report. They say whether you're buying coffee at the small cafe around the corner driving a bmw or sitting in an armchair eating some fruit from the local grocery store. You're enjoying the products and services brought to you by family owned company so bmw i- kia and whoever else they're talking about
China state TV raps Kohler, BMW for using facial recognition
"Chinese State TV criticizing bathroom brand, Kohler and automatic factor of BMW are using facial recognition to identify customers and a possible violation of privacy rules. China's government uses facial recognition technology to monitor to the public and a nationwide network of video cameras. Some developers market the technology abroad, prompting complaints they might be helping oppressive governments. CCTV says cooler stores, BMW dealerships and Max Marah fashion boutiques are among retailers that use facial recognition to identify and track customers, often without telling them. Holder says it will stop using the technology.

European Union Pushes for 'Digital Sovereignty'
"Like many other governments. The european union passed a massive coronavirus recovery package setting aside trillions of dollars to get the economy back up and running on the other side of the pandemic but also included in what is extensively a covert relief. Plan is a more than one hundred and fifty billion dollar pledge to bolster the technological independence one of the plans. Big goals is for europe to make up about twenty percent of global chip sales by twenty thirty. Which would be double their current market. Share it's all part of the blocks broader ambition of catching up to countries like the us and china when it comes to technology for more on this we turn to our reporters do. Hey stu thanks for being here. Thanks for having me okay. So why is the eu making this pledge. Now what's been going on in the tech sector that europe feels. It needs to address one of the things that the pandemic really showed was how dependent european technology is and other parts of the world especially for things like computer chips. So there's a global chip shortage right now and one of the reasons that there's been an unexpected surge for things that require computer chips so we're talking about laptops and tablets is part phones for for people who are doing remote work and schooling. But another thing that you might not think about requiring a lot chips cars cars now required dozens of chips for things like controlling the engine transmission. Backup cameras infotainment systems stuff like that and europe has a huge car industry. Yet you're thinking we're thinking companies like mercedes and bmw. Volkswagen and some of these companies has had to have to cut production and even furlough workers idol factories because the bill the cars. Because there aren't enough chipped going round in this world so the idea behind this is to have the european semiconductor companies have greater presence in the world so that these car companies don't have to go to places like the united states and asia by chips rate and i think when we think of the major global players in tack we think of the us we think of trying to and others we don't necessarily think of the e us tech scene. So what does the industry look like. They're now and how likely is push to work. As far as semiconductors are concerned the us and asia really dominate the sector. So you think of big companies like intel and does samsung. Tsmc there either in the us or asia. So you're trying to play catch up right now so you're does have a couple of big semiconductor companies like annex p. and am allen. The netherlands infineon in germany. But they are sort of in niches of the semiconductor industry. They focus on things like making the machines that make chips for instance or for specialized chips cars or industrial uses. They don't have the big chips that go into data centers or laptops or smartphones. Like the us or asia dies. So that's what they're trying to do. They're trying to really spur. This hub homegrown industry. But there's not a lot to start with and the learning curve for developing these really tough technology that requires really expensive manufacturing facilities. It's really steep and it's a nine years. That's a short amount of time to try to become a bigger player in the global chip industry right nine years till bat. Twenty thirty goal. They set for themselves. So why do they see this. As such a big priority. One of the stakes for the eu. One of the things That they realize was that volkswagen for instance they had to furlough workers idol factories because they couldn't get enough chips and they had to get those chips from other parts of the world. So this is a really really big deal for their economy. If some of their biggest industries can't operate because they're reliant in other regions. That's a huge problem for them. And that's that's been a story of their tech sector. In general for the past several years steel is the eu the only government taking steps like this or are we seeing similar action from others. The eu is not alone. And that's going to make its attempt to catch up and the chip industry even tougher one country. That's poured a lot of resources into advancing. Its domestic chip industry china. They set up. These huge government finds sometimes worth tens of billions of dollars in an attempt to catch up with places like the us and taiwan. Now the us in response they recently. The congress recently passed its own legislation to sponsor projects to spur the us chip industry. And each of these projects might be worth billions of dollars. They might get billions of dollars in tax taxpayer aid or financial incentives to build facilities in america to try to stay ahead of places like china. So that's going to be a really tough thing for europe to do is first of all the competing against two very well funded region and china and the us plus they're starting from from a smaller base and that's a couple of countries working to build up sort of technological independence. What does it mean that. So many governments are focused on that. What kind of impact could that have right now. We're talking about the potential decoupling of the tech sector. So there's been tariffs and expert controls between the us and china basically for something like chip industry is really important for a couple of reasons. One is military. The most advanced fighter jets and tanks and drones require really sophisticated chips. Artificial intelligence requires skated chip. So the wars of the future going to be determined could be determined by semiconductors on top of that there is a economic independence. If you're an apple samsung you need the most advanced chips to build your best laptops and smartphones. So we're talking hundreds of billions of dollars at stake here. If countries can't trade technology with with each other we're gonna see slower development of things like electronics. So we're talking billions of dollars at stake and possibly slower development if people have countries aren't willing to share technology with each other.

How Real Estate Sells Cars with Gina McCartney
"Gina, welcome to . the It show is great to have you speaking to us today. Maybe just to kick things off can you maybe just tell us a bit about Gina McCartney - who you are and some background. . to thank Yes, I'm yourself sure, you so Gi for na McCartney having me here today. Super excited to see both. So my background if i go back to perhaps my brief - youth and into professional career. I really my whole life was distant creative: sculpting, painting, designing and off the back of that passion went to uni studied creative advertising and was destined. ..my path was to become a art director . My very early career was in advertising agencies and spent ten years ing servic some like pretty big clients ilo, . kohl's meyer group. Cbi off foundation and then some order client bmw and many were because of mine and it was during that time that i realized how much i loved as and surprised no surprise. I joined renault. Stralia and joining renault at the time was at a really pivotal point for the business. And that was all about preaching and finding every possible opportunity we could in the market and myra was to introduce the sierra digital program. Really lift the capability of the dealer network from a lead management perspective. Sur getting out outta rot on building confidence back in the network that we were providing leads to them in generating value from office and then from neymar roll moved into a brand and events role and so the full marketing swayed had an awesome time with the business and great team. And then my time was up. When i was tapped on the shoulder for all at anchor pinellas area group been realized real estate dot com to you joined the business not really knowing much about the role. I was joining. He'd go to market manager role and of bain there now close to seven years and moved my way through various segments. So we're two now. Residential business at develop a business emotional property meteorologisy and clients and also to stint in malaysia. And i leave the win. We acquired a southeast asia and helped with the integration of that business side at an awesome korea here. Rei and now run. I tame called the customer. Excellence team and so my team move. Twenty incredibly talented people help support our two hundred thirty sales teams across australia. And that includes the learning development perching old training ogata market siles support collateral and operations analytic. Kpi's commissions incentive sprints and really big a big team mission and vision is to pave the new way of selling and selling clock when you work for rei. Let's bit about my story. Love love gardening love dancing and eighteen. And that's how i spend most of my time let's it's an impressive story. How you you've migrated from during the karate stuff through to or i will now into real estate now. We can't get a bit of understanding as to real estate dot com o. Rei group and what's the back story of real estate. Dot com abc business was born in the garage. Dome koster and for those familiar with john. It's in the eastern suburbs of melbourne and in nineteen ninety five and they came up with a crazy idea of water. We put the photos of property onto online so people can see them on the internet and so literally scanning photo by photo by photo built this web sought. That looks very different today than what did obviously up. Twenty plus years ago and over the years to really brilliant simple idea to gos- and today with the leading australian property portal and we have hundred million plus is it as a month coming to thought trillions of photos from a perspective and yeah we service most property clients around australia and that includes real estate agents property manages developers homebuilders land developers media clients of less amount of probably. But almost all and anyone that wants to reach property. Sega's we do business. You know you've got a really interesting background. Having spent tom and credit in automotive value in real estate can you. Maybe just discuss some of the similarities. Between automotive and real estate i remember when i joined. Ra and it was probably a month thing. I thought wow. I didn't realize there was so many similarities between the two industries. And if i stop from a business structure perspective the similarities of utah franchise groups independence at relationship between head office and you know the small small businesses that are running in local and regional areas. I think that that pressure that applies with a small business to find the raw talent retain talent when there is no professional requirement This note there's no huddle to get into other industry. And i think that is a challenge that are still share today and another real estate industry in particular institute really trying to introduce their professional courses create more opportunities for the right people to enter the industry. So they've got really quality staff sieving consumers invincibles. And i think our remember. That was a challenge in the automotive industry finding the right talent and apprenticeship styles perspective perhaps a bit of bid process. But that was probably one thing that i saw straightaway is a big lesson. In automotive that i think real estate can learn with the handshake. Between sales and after-sales and if you think of the real estate version of that is the sales and rental market now rent rolls the most profitable part of a real estate agency and if you think about the handover in the importance of one to the other the ongoing retention of the customer. I think that's a really important similarity between the two some. I think some best practice sharing could happen more. And then the probably the other big similarity i would say is the is much smarter and much savia and this is probably not exclusive to automotive in real estate but their expectations have increased tenfold. And no longer. Can you get back to a later inquiry within a couple of days. We're now seeing consumer expectations at a couple of minutes. And i think that's something that dealerships deal with daily and you know the the now now now economy that exists within cosima world.
Ford's New Rocket League Sponsorship is Perfect
"Besides the racing games which are a natural fit for car brands. There's one sport that made such a natural Fit For A brand sponsorship. I can't believe it took so long. It took it League yesterday Ford announced they're putting the Ford F-150 into the game. It's the first time a consumer-facing vehicle has been added to the game. So consumer-facing a key part of that. What does that mean rocket league has brought in a ton of different cars from media Universe has many of which are tied to actual Brands. You know, the Batmobile doesn't have a brand behind in the Dodge Charger is in game. So is Nissan's are thirty-four and so it's a Jeep, but the first two of those cars were tied to Fast and Furious DLC pack and they're based on old school cars for the charger it wage. 1968 and 1970 and the Nissan was based on the car from 1999 used by Brian O'Connor. The jeep was from Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can just buy these cars at a lot down. There was one other car that wasn't tied to a media franchise in rocket League's history. And that car is the McLaren starting at two hundred grand though. The McLaren is not a consumer car because it's a Subaru targeted at high-end customers. I'd wager to say maybe five people who play rocket League can afford a McLaren. Maybe that's generous Ford's F-150 is clearly different. The Ford F-series is the best selling Truck Series in North America nearly a million truck sold in 2019 when it comes to marketing you Market a Ford F series truck a lot differently than a new market a McLaren which is why it's fair to say. This is the first consumer-facing car that's existed in rocket League. What I think is really cool about the sponsorship. It says made up of a bunch of different parts first off the car inches the game great start it'll be available for purchase from February 22nd to the 28th. Then forward will also be a sponge for the upcoming rlcs winter major at the end of February that we taking over the in-game Billboards, which I still believe are a massive white space for sponsors Ford is also releasing a new ad around this partnership with the coolest part of that ad is that will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, you know the star of Breaking Bad also the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Shout out to help crested also did for Superbowl at this year just to give you an idea about how much Ford is investing in the sponsorship and there's a final piece of a too which is also really cool Ford is hosting a freestyle competition people unfamiliar with rocket League freestyling is when you send your car turning like crazy to overcomplicate a goal in search of a sick clip, it's really popular on YouTube. It's doing tricks like flip resets double Taps Turtles and any other way to make a gold look really cool for it'll be inviting 8 freestyle rap. Our competition and the winner will receive an actual Ford F-150. Those are the kinds of small details that really make a brand sponsorship in Esports stand out to me. It shows an underscore the audience and the content that works with this audience as well. I really think this is the car sponsorship the rocket league has been raped for four years with the increased Esports investment from Brands like Toyota Honda BMW Mercedes and plenty more. I really can't believe it took this long, but good on Ford for finally making it
The Freedom To Be You
"Now. The topic i wanted to discuss in this podcast. Episode is the topic regarding the freedom to be you and this actually comes from the last four to five weeks in the podcast community. We've been talking about this weekly. And it all started with a discussion around the concept of branding so when i graduated from college i my first job. I interned at a company doing marketing. And then what am i first. Jobs was at an advertising agency. And i learned a lot while working at the advertising agency regarding marketing regarding branding and this specific agency that i worked for was known for coming up with the brand of what happens. Here stays here for the city of las vegas. That was one of our a. Customers at the advertising agency was the city of las vegas or the the It's actually the city. But they're they're ministry of tourism. Or whatever the acronyms for the entity responsible for getting people to visit las vegas so they had the agency had come up with this branding campaign. That what happens here stays here and I'm sure many of you have heard about this. It's it's a very popular Brand for the for las vegas. So branding is a very important aspect of marketing. But it's not necessarily the same thing as marketing. Marketing is what you want your customers to do for example in advertisement that convinces them to call your phone number to hire you for Air conditioning repair or whatever. It is but branding is something a little bit. Different brandon is everything that you do to evoke a certain feeling from your customer. So that when they think about your company they have a certain feeling and many large brands focus heavily on being consistent with their branding. Apple has a certain. Feel a bmw. Audi ford radio. Any major brand has a brandt. has what's called branding. And all of their marketing revolves around the brandon and it starts with something as simple as their mission statement so think of brandon as what a company wants you to feel about them and marketing is more what a company wants you to do and because i spent so much time at an advertising agency and learning the ins and outs of marketing. And the ins and outs of branding I started to think more recently about how we as individuals actually do the same thing. We have the story that we have about ourselves and then everything that we do when we interact with others revolves around maintaining the brand that we want them to associate with us and as silly as that sounds. I think it's very real right. You may have a story about you. Which is i am an intellectual person and look at me. How i read so when i post a picture on social media of hey check out this book that i'm reading and that's all part of my subconscious branding effort to make sure that you know that i am a person who reads therefore i'm a person who intellectual or things or things like that The clothing that we wear the way that we do our hair the Type of vehicles that we drive the sports and hobbies that we participate in. All of these things are involved with our personal brand. And i think it's important to understand this not because we're necessarily trying to eliminate our stories or to eliminate are brandon but our effort is to understand ourselves. Why does this you know when someone does or says something. Why does it affect me this way. Oh because it's inconsistent with the branding. That i have about myself that i want them to perceive about me. Now i've encountered this firsthand in my own practice with When i was going through my transition faith and i had this story about myself. Which is that. I am a good person. I do good things. I i'm not the type of person who's Going to intentionally do wrong Or i guess in its broadest sense. I'm not a bad guy. I'm not a bad person and i. I liked to be known as someone who's nice and friendly and who does the right thing. That was part of my personal brand. Or i guess is part of my personal brand
GM Has a New Logo
"Me set this up for everybody. General motors has a new logo. And it's similar to the old logo. It's still a square box. It has the letters g and m on it. it has 'em on it For those on youtube. Mr bruce's just throwing it up here on our screen we can see. It's it's it's it's it's a rebrand right so the debate going on in the motor one dot com universe is whether this is a good thing a bad thing ridiculous thing a terrible move a smart move. Let me give you a little bit. More background I don't really mind this. Rebrand that much but i also come from a marketing background. I had a marketing career. Long before i went time into journalism. So i i think maybe i get a slightly different viewpoint of the rebranding process and why companies tend to do it But john why don't you lead off because that's the reason you're here john is. John is the one that opposes my viewpoint and wait one second here. I get to play referee here. I get the. I'm calling the balls and strikes if someone starts taking too long. I get veto power. Because my thing is i have a completely different opinion. That both of you. That i will express at the end but comes up in. This discussion of re brands is that we've been seeing a lot of them a lot of the just in the past year i am going to share an image with you guys Is right now of three of them. What we say so. Volkswagen simplifies their emblem. Bmw's simplifies their Nissan simplifies their envelope. All of this has happened in the past year and there are other examples that i can pull up. There's maserati there is a mazda. Oh so this has kind of been bubbling up and then this. Gm one came up and chris in john in our motor one chat kind of started going at things and so i wanna give them the opportunity both to air their feelings about this badge and then when they're done i will come in at the end and give my opinion which is barely different from both pairs. So i'm gonna pop up an image of the gm badge. Actually i the they are going to tell you how they feel about the emmett. Mr neff i yield the floor to the distinguished gentleman. Here the image you popped up the gm the new gm logo Bruce was black and white. It's forgiving that is i would say the best version of the logo. Oh their degree. There's the gradient one which i think adds a level of ridiculousness to the logo so For those not viewing on youtube it is this new. Gm logo with a gradient. That goes from aquamarine blue into like the traditional jam. Blew into another blue All right so my views on this level. When i see it my first impression is that it is juvenile. That's the word. I used that chris and i were arguing over in our chat. I say juvenile. Because i think it looks like Like gm created an iphone app and this was the icon for it Or you know this is something a this looks like the The icon for new adobe software next to your photo shop and your illustrator It's trying to look Hi tack and and Not bleeding edge but more like you know. I'm part of the software revolution Which is true. That's happening in cars. Software and computing power is growing exponentially more important Let me take a note of that really quick. You said it's true. Sure sure that is granted and of course another reason that that the juvenile comes to mind as they went from two capital letters Which is proper grammar for It's an acronym general motors. You know and they went to to lower case letters so that has a juvenile edge to it to me This gradient is ridiculous and a first year. Art student would probably create that in photoshop And some people say like it's supposed to evoke a plug. And i guess i guess that's supposed to be negative space of the m and the underline of the m. Maybe i don't know. I i don't really see i don't get that as a strong message. from the logo. Now when i say it's bad. Like when i say it's bad like i don't think it's the worst thing in the world My perspective is that. If if i were if i were running the company. Or if i were an executive in the boardroom that day i would raise my hand and said we need to rethink this. This is not what we wanna do. that said i don't think logo bruins gm. I don't think. I don't th- i actually don't think logos and names of companies have that much power especially if your product is good. Your product is good. It can overcome a logo or or a bad name. And i say that having worked at a couple of websites that had ridiculous bad names and we're still successful because they were just good websites and people look past the name and just you know they thought of the brand of the site as as what the product is and the name took came on Took on a new meaning. And i think this logo could be the same way you know if gm succeeds in its easy. Revolution will probably look at the logo. with you know in a completely different way than we do today when gm's future plans are all promises and vaporware right now

"Of the BMW status. I am. Dave Ramsey, your host. Thank you for joining us, America. We're so glad you're here. Open phones at triple eight eight to five five two two five triple eight eight to five five two two five francs starts off this hour, Chicago. Hey, Frank, welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Dave, how are you? Thanks for taking my call. Sure. What's up? So my wife, and I are forty five years old. We got nine year old twins. We're currently working on baby steps to believe. We'll we'll be set free within a year. Well, currently banking our home and just wondering based on our age and stuff we should plan on buying a home again in the future. If that's something that we should start planning for or we should just continue to rent wants debt free based on our situation. Why wouldn't you buy a home? I just. Five and we're back here where we want to retire. If we're gonna live in Chicago the restaurant lives, you know, we're fifteen twenty years out from retirements if we do by we would want to buy probably in a fifteen year mortgage with a sizable down payment, of course. Kind of planning and preparing for that. Well, I mean, if you look at real estate prices ten years ago, and we'll start precious today that would tell you you would wish you had owned a home during that time. By and large and certainly fifteen years ago, and very certainly twenty years ago. And so were you to stay in Chicago for that period of time? For for the next five to twenty years, then you're going to make some money on the house. And it's going to be worth having home the house. Usually buying real stay on the short term can get you in trouble. If you're going to be there three years or something. But that's not the case. But then in retirement owning your real estate what that does is it locks in the most expensive cost you have which is housing it locks in the cost of it to own the house, even if it's on payments prefer, obviously to be paid for when you get to retirement. No kidding. But even if you just have a house payment and see if you live to sixty five years old statistically, you're probably gonna live in the ninety s average the average death age of a male is seventy four, but that includes mortality teenage death and so on statistically, if you're in good health at sixty five you probably gonna the twenty five years to outpatient flation, and guess what rent's gonna do during that twenty five years. It's gonna go up every year. And so your most expensive cost as housing, and it goes up every year. When you're a renter during retirement or any other time so for now being a renter while you finish up getting out of debt as you said and get.
