I mean the sec has come out and said you know this is something we're looking into. Do you expect any sort of action is. Are the rules going to be different in. Twenty twenty three than they are in two thousand twenty one. Well let me ask you a question. How big how. Big is the money on the other side of that issue so big so big so big it will and this will sound the. This will sound nihilistic. It will change if the market has caused too many people a lot of pain otherwise otherwise this is. This is a a tempest in a teapot. Nobody feels the pain from this. So therefore nothing will happen. Because so big the so just to be even more crass if a bunch of kids in their teens and twenties who have a couple thousand dollars at stake if they kind of get screwed over in the process if if a bunch of wealthy guys in their fifties gets fed then change is gonna come heavens to murgatroyd. Yes but once again. I don't know. I don't know that you can necessarily blame that. On payment for order flow though as opposed to as opposed to other elm it.

There are a number of stories out there about the economy that i think Really shed light on the fact that we really are going through a level of realignment in this country in variety of ways. I have said for a while. We're in a political realignment stake. Jd vance for example in ohio jd. Vance hillbilly. Lg author is running for the us. Senate he's running. He had been a vocal critic of donald. Trump has become a supporter of donald trip over time. Very focused on The white working class. He's pro union pro free speech. He's pro social safety net. He is not by any. Stretch of the vegetation libertarian He is a big government conservative. If ever there was one and in fact a lot of people are saying his got the same views as people on the left did in the forties. And he's a truman republican. If you will earn fdr republican. And he's not alone. I've had a number of people. Tell me that they more and more view themselves as an old school democrat. They are pro unions. Which i actually think it's a terrible idea It just drives up costs among other things. i not as worker for legions funds the left ultimately But they're they're pro union They want good government. Education run systems. They want access to colleges. They want government healthcare. They want a social safety net benefits for people it very much. Sounds like a nine hundred thousand nine hundred sixty democrat with conservative social policy and in fact the data does show that if there's really a constituency for a new party in this country it is socially conservative and fiscally liberal a lot of people in this country of the academic and political elite believe we need to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative. We need to restrain the size and scope of government finances but we need to be all in an abortion gay rights transgender rights In the culture war from the left in fact Hispanic voters black voters and a lot of white working class perfectly. Happy with a government that provides a social safety net at large social dividend but is deeply conservative when it comes to life and transgender politics and the the alphabet gang war that we're all in with culture there's actually a greater constituency for that. Jd vance is one of several candidates. Other some of whom were funded by the billionaire. Peter the'll who are taking this tax. It's very interesting to watch his rise. I'm not sure..

I won't finish. I want this finished. Whatever is that. What is that science. And they're called change orders that same thing anything that's going to increase the price that was not already included in your work. And because here's the thing is that if you don't get the extra work in writing you're not going to be entitled to charge or it sure entertain. I've seen a lot of people get burned by that. You know and sometimes intentionally sometimes not sometimes people like just do it a change with her later and of course if that's the product manager but then you know he's fired or superintendent and prove it so you guys still did the work but we didn't have a sign change orders our not entitled to be paid.

Do what you know how much you know if it's going to be paid schedules. What does that look like. Because i you don't ask the pain that you definitely not going to get paid and so if you're up front about when you're gonna ask for payment and when it's expected to be received what happens if you don't right i would also building that says if i don't receive payment within ten days i'll have work anymore right because if you don't build that in that you don't necessarily have that right so his being upfront about.

"Said the republicans. We cannot turn a blind eye to members of congress openly defending terrorist attacks by hamas against our close ally israel nor they're dangerous rhetoric which has contributed to antisemitic attacks across the country into this is interesting because obama. Just last week suggested that the rise in anti semitic hate crimes because of you-know-who donald trump. Now this intake gonzales who a democrat texas border state said the migrants the come to our board absorbed by our economy. Tiffy notice all these migrants who come to our border get absorbed by our economy because we clearly have a labor shortage in this country that need get absorbed by our economy because clearly we have a labor shortage in this country. He said i've told you that. The economists who's done probably more work than any other. Economists on the impact of both legal and illegal immigration is a man named george boroughs who teaches at harvard and he says there are winners and losers behind immigration Biggest losers are americans who are unskilled high school or less. We have to compete for jobs. They would otherwise be held by them. And who then have to endure downward pressure on their wages depending upon the area where you live that downward pressure pressure to be several hundred dollars a year to maybe a couple thousand dollars a year. But there's another way that unskilled immigration hurts the very people that the left claims to care about we've talked about the large percentage of young black men with criminal records in some urban areas. If many twenty five percent now recall near the end of the obama administration they wanted to quote ban the box close. You know what that means that means refusing to let employers initially inquire about a prospective employees criminal record because obviously there's a huge bias against hiring people with criminal records so the idea is to ban the box so that at least there's an interview before the prospective employer finds out that the prospective employee has a criminal record. That's how they plan to go around the fact that a lot of employers are understandably reluctant to hire people with criminal records. Well peter personnel member of the us civil rights commission points out that one of the things that admitting grants does is it gives employers skittish about hiring somebody with a criminal record. Another option another labor pool of people who do not have criminal records. So you're also hurting employment because of that.

"Oftentimes i feel like the biggest barrier to entry is figuring out how said ideas are free had a turn it into a real thing and i love you went through all these iterations with your friends and that the final product that people are receiving is the thirtieth integrations. You've done all of this product testing by what drove the decision to then take it to kickstarter because there's a little bit of vulnerability in there as well. Your background is in sales marketing. And so i'm curious. What seeds you planted before this launch. That could make sure that it. Of course it can't make sure or maybe you do make sure. I don't know that it'll end up being successful on day. One we'll tell about the product world if you're looking to launch a products there's two main options which is just launch it on your own website and go for it and then the other alternative is crowdfunding. I do have experience helping companies with crowdfunding already so that was my own experience knowing what would be involved so i wish this wasn't the case but for kickstarter is very marketing heavy. What crowdfunding is supposed to be is. Yes you put a product and you show it to people and you'll garner support for it to make that dream a reality but what crowdfunding really is marketing. You still have to market you. Start to drive people to come and see your product. Discover it like. Where are you going to get. These people certainly requires facebook ads. All of these different things. So you can still launch a successful kickstarter. Small passion project. We're trying to raise a couple thousand dollars. You can still totally us kick start for it but if you want to have a high chance of having a six figure campaign you're going to have to put a lot of money. I allocated about thirty thousand dollars to get this project off the ground and are publicly stated goal on kickstarter was ten thousand dollars but the idea is with with ten thousand dollars. Let's say we were able to raise ten thousand or fifteen thousand dollars that would help me in the pursuit of making the product. Come to life regardless it didn't matter where we ended up on..

I've got major authority in major credibility. Because i wrote that book. Can i interviewed those people. And that's where i get the value. And i've seen it happen that i've gone into a client engagement. Put that book on the table. Given it to the client and i've walked out of there with deal and i know that it's because of the book and because it just cut through the whole sale cycle they didn't have to figure out whether they could trust me or not. They look at the book and they say well nobody else. Who's pitching us has published a book and talk to these people. So i'm going with this guy settle. That's where i've gotten the value from the book and that's where a lot of other people get value from. Their books is that it gives them credibility in authority to do something else to be able to grow their business faster. Yeah you got my mind going there. Just in terms of being able to demonstrate the The the willingness of those authority figures those people in those positions. I mean my book almost follows that in some way because half the time. I'm talking about people that i've interviewed on on my podcast. I hadn't thought of it that way. I had thought of it in terms of teaching people how to build influence. I never thought of it as a as a credibility as an assist assisting piece if you will to demonstrate my credibility but now that you mention it that's a really good way to leverage that and to create that that sense of. Oh well you know. He works with these people in these people in the interviews. People in this we hangs out with. And so. that's you know. I trust those people and that that elevates that person in in my mind. Yeah and i've seen it work in other areas too like i speaking before i wrote my book and i was getting paid a couple thousand dollars to go speak at events and then as soon as i had the book immediately i was able to command higher rates so i could ask for ten thousand or fifteen thousand to go keynote or speak at an event and i could get that. I couldn't ask for that before. I had the book. I didn't have the authority. But once i had the book go. He's published a book. He must know what he's talking about. It was this instant credibility. And so that's another way that financially benefited me but it had nothing to do with book sales. Yeah yeah that's great. I just hope everybody hears that because Certainly when i talk to people in the and they find oh you've got a book in. Yeah here we are. And i show it to him. Wow you must make a lot of money off that no not i make money but not not from selling the book not from you know a dollars for shipping or something like that so right now..

"I i believe that's gonna come in more is as you have more Influencers are out there who are having their brands And doing their videos about tech and they're about beauty products. I think those are going to populate more and Be able to show up on ads so that when you're buying ads you can reach out directly to an audience that already caters to what the interest is so. I think there's going to be more more interaction that way to build a relationship and then build the the next up is is to to buy whatever product you want ex. Yeah absolutely and i think it's that kind of tailoring. It just makes marketing even better. It's like you know we've come a long way for marketing. And i think that trend is continuing where you just used to have to black something out on a television channel. Not really aware who's watching when to two newspapers radio. That was just a big blast. You kind of just the timing. But boy it was i guess. Vague targeting banal. He get real specific. And it's pretty neat to see how is continuing the problem can put this Real talk that needs. These sites are gathering more and more of our information and that not like a safe batter. It's good it's just like people should know and know what you're you're paying his with facebook we actually do pay for that service if you want to think that we repay with our data but we are paying. It's not at that is true. One thing i want to bring up when you mentioned with with data data can help us with better decision making a couple of years ago. I was looking up. Some for billboards The stuff that you see on on the side of the road or on the freeway where you'd have a big sign up and doing some stuff for Do do some research. About how much does it cost to get something on there on the side of the road and it was a couple thousand dollars depending on location of course location location location. If you're in a high traffic area it will cost more. Because you'll get more is on it but you know if it's If you want it at night you gotta pay more or if you don't want the literacy on because that's that's an extra cost and so But you never really get a true number of how many people will see it You'll get estimates based off of what the company says you know you're highly populated area but you ng these e commerce platforms these social media sites and doing ads. You will get real time information and specific information about what you're doing and you can dive down into demographics. Do you want to target age ranges male female You wanna target by do sports If you want to dive deeper. They played basketball versus baseball versus soccer. You can get very granular with the target audience that you wanna reach depending on what you're trying to sell or what your services absolutely and And it's not to say that the billboard style marketing is bad in every single case is just that For a lot of companies. They you know. They think to traditionally with their advertising. And there's better ways to target you know case in point like a billboard is just if you just want a mass awareness tons of.

INTERPOL Warns People About Counterfeit Coronavirus Vaccines
"I took a year when the distribution of vaccines is so important. The international police organization has a serious warning also known as interpol. They're cautioning people about the dangers of counterfeit vaccines stacey vanik smith and cardiff garcia from our daily economics. Podcast the indicator from planet. Money wanted to find out more about this and so they took a trip into the dark web. The cova crisis has created a whole universe of opportunity for criminals fear and scarcity and high demand are very powerful market forces. china anderson has been watching these forces. Play out for months. He's a senior security researcher at domain tools. Were a cyber threat intelligence data company so we scan the entire internet as many times began every single day and give insights to customers based upon what we see and part of the whole internet is the so called dark web. That's the unregulated. Part of the web. Were a lot of illegal activity happens. Like what is the dark web like. There's many things when people talk about the dark way that most of the time what people are referring to is anonymous services illegal forums or illegal marketplace's illegal marketplaces where you can buy drugs or weapons or passports or cova vaccines so now starting to see some coronavirus vaccines you know looking at. Maybe two hundred different ads here. So can you read us some of the ads that you've found. Let me pull one up. I'm looking at here so You know the as ten covid. Nineteen vaccines The prices re thousand two hundred and seventy six euros. That's about four thousand. Us dollars so about four hundred dollars per vaccine. Yeah and for the record. Chad does not think that these vaccines are legit for one thing. The pfizer vaccine requires a very intense cold storage chain. The vaccines have to be kept at negative seventy degrees fahrenheit and also the kobe vaccine ads are mixed in with ads for all kinds of other things and chances that tends to be a red flag. Since we're in the sees you scroll up in there's cocaine You know scroll down. You've got your airline and You know molly matthew name it ashwell as you know. This site has firearms chances. The global cova crisis has been a massive opportunity for cybercriminals he says the online marketplaces are still a tiny part of it right now and most of the criminal activity has involved ransomware chad's because lives are at stake and there's so much chaos and now criminal organizations know that if they hack into the system of hospital they can demand and probably get a lot of money back in october. One hospital in new jersey paid cybercriminals more than six hundred and fifty thousand dollars after the criminals locked up their computer systems and threatened to publish all of their patient records. Chad expects that these kinds of attacks will become more frequent in coming months because after all the payoff for those kinds of attacks are much bigger than a couple thousand dollars for the covid vaccines. Although chad also expects the vaccine market place will continue to grow on the dark web. Stacey smith cardiff garcia. Npr news
Why Athletes Want Trademarks for Everything
"Sir ryan. I'm super curious. How did you land on trademarks as something to write about in the first place. Well i was actually working with as an editor on a story. Earlier this spring about the buffer brothers ryan hawkins smith is an editor and writer for espn dot com and he reported on the rise of athletes seeking trademarks which saw an enormous uptick in two thousand. Twenty michael bruce buffer Most people know the michael for let's get ready to rumble. Yes we work on this story. We discovered some numbers that we thought could not be right and the numbers were that trademark alone. That one sentence that michael says in the ring may have netted the buffer brothers north of one hundred million. Maybe three four hundred million dollars over the years but yeah it was bonkers but it checks out that one phrase it's a business unto itself like one of my favorite details. We were working on this. There's a website for michael buffer and. Let's get ready to rumble where you can go and rat out people you have seen or heard using that phrase get ready to rumble and in return for being a horrible internet informant. They will mail us some buffer merge and then they will pursue legal action so i was just thinking as i read all of this. I got a dive into this world. I need to know more. So i want to be very clear about this. Then what's the motive for filing a trademark ryan. If you're an athlete so a lot of trademarks can be quite lucrative. I bet we ended up talking quite a bit about the ones that make a lot of money. The vast majority though are athletes protecting themselves protecting their trademark. Just in case because the reality is when you think about hail murray as big play as that was and as much as it it resonated in the sports world like how much money. How many t shirts saying hail marie are. They actually going to sell like if they're lucky. What fifty thousand dollars. It costs a couple thousand dollars to to get an attorney and to get a trademark so it's actually a really bad business plan most of the time but it makes sense that you would go and protect your athlete like the last thing i think a manager or a business advisor wants is to have to come to kyla murray after murray says hey why am i seeing coffee mugs outside the stadium that have my raise and picture on them so it's mostly about protection. This is also an industry that you say has been not only connected to sports and athletes for decades and decades. It's also changed in the past decade or so. How did that come to be. There's two answers. The short basic answer is that good athletes have management people around them at bigger teams than ever think about this stuff all of the time but i go down a rabbit hole about the more meta answer which is applications went from two hundred sixty nine thousand in the united states in two thousand eight to twice that in twenty twenty Oh a small number actually athletes. So this is a society thing. And so the wormhole that i go down is just how much humans are more cognizant of the idea of celebrity and individual branding than ever before and you could point to social media for some of that. You can point to the kardashians. Maybe even donald trump as examples of successful personal branding
Whats the Easiest Way to Scale an Offer to Cold Traffic?
"Called Dream House Dream Hose powers the web with fast websites and superior customer service brought to you by team of web experts or super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners all you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School, on I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today we're GonNa talk about what's the easiest way to scale an offer to cold traffic? It's all. START I. Russia goes because you've been doing cold traffic really heavily right now with your agency as agency accelerator. Yeah. It's yeah. We'll just call it that. So cool. Once you break down. That, you found to scare offer to cold traffic I think by the way, this offer is more so of a Info, product or coaching program type of thing. So just keep in mind that's what I'm talking about. When I say offer in the scenario, what I've learned is that look there's a lot of people that share numbers we've had SAM. Evans speaking our mastermind does over thirty six, million dollars a year or so there's a lot of great people out there but the problem. With that is these people have established program. So I think the first thing you need to think about when you are trying to scale cold offer is you start baby steps first, right? There's a camp in affiliate were that's as much. Advertising can get as much learnings. I think you're starting out you don't want to lose your shirt what you're trying to do I is you WanNa make sure that your offer make sense okay. So I'M GONNA give a couple of things here so Your offer makes sense. Don't think about putting together the entire program initially think about what the bare minimum you can do. Maybe what you can do is you can push people from facebook or Youtube or whatever what I recommend is focusing on one channel I o let's just say facebook and and push them to a squeeze page or landing page right? You can use a software like unbalanced and you make page drive them they're collect the email. Address have a good bride there. So for example, I might say, Hey, you know for us, we're teaching you how to build a client acquisition system. Right? There's a couple of secrets we have for you. Okay. Just enter your email once they enter their email address then they'll get a video to get a value video for me an inside the valley video right after it says, you can book a phone call that's all you need to do. Right Now what you're trying to do here, this is a higher offer keep in mind this we're talking a couple thousand dollars plus and we're trying to get them to a phone call, right keep it very simple. Keep the funnel don't make it complex right and so what you WanNa do from that point is you just take a couple of phone calls you ask people hey, what are the problems that you're facing right now? What are you looking? For and that will help you continue to refine your off people in the very beginning they think they need to have everything set where you're looking to do. You're looking to continue to innovate and learn on your offer, and then once you know what people's objections are as you're talking to them on the phone, you can refine your messaging on the advertising side right so everything cut a place to each other. So what you WanNa do then is. Once. You know the objections your copy is going to speak to people. So I like thinking about one guy in our our mastermind his name is Kong and here is a company called jump cut and he does really good with advertising. So he says look if you're doing video ads of any type or if you're ready any, add it all you have to hook them in the very beginning so. Look people reading the time. There's if you're running offer especially for a coaching program, you're competing with really good people right you wanNA, Hook people. I. Look at what other people are doing look at what other types of ads hook you and save a bunch of those ads and you're just keeping trying to drive home here. Right now, announcing a lot of different things is you are trying to learn as much as you can. Then you're trying to iterating because a lot of people they'll just copy like for example, you will look at Sam copy funnel, but they don't know that he spent thousands and thousands of dollars, hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars iterating on his funnel iterating on his. Offer iterating on copy and continually creating new copy new front and offers to his landing page continue rate that way right. So what I'm saying is constantly a work in progress and if you WANNA, make it work, drive them to a simple funnel I, get him on phone calls ask questions to them. This applies for SAS as while you want to. Ask you know be to be asked a lot of questions that will guide higher advertising should look and then guess what it's easy because you're reading people's mind at that point. So know I gave a lot of stuff neil, the clarifying questions on that no I'm going to give you guys a simplest way to skill offer to cold traffic. Don't warm up. The cold traffic verse my methodology is you go educational based content. You send cold traffic to the educational base

"Hello. Welcome to the day punk ass I'm Laura Riley did today's senior correspondent coming to the end of my stint killing neo regular host Brian Mercy. So on today's show, I'm very excited to g she Donald Albright Donald Founder I'm president of. TV, which is an Atlanta based production studio is hidden costs. Vanished. Monster Linden in La. Many money. Combined the has reached more than five hundred, million dollars to date and TV as they would suggest is increasingly inking deals beyond podcasting, TV and even recently striking deal. So don't welcome to the. Past. Thank you for having me. Let Veer. And Eighty joining us from Atlanta today as you've been hung down. Yes I am I've been here for. How long has it been now? Feels like this. Browse data. Yeah. Monday or Saturday I can't tell but yeah. I mean Atlanta from California originally but. Moved here to Atlanta. After after I should go into college and then I love the city. Yes I was going to ask you she's a what brought you to Atlanta. I know your your background was in music permission an are. Yeah. Yes. So I'm from the Bay Area San Jose California my mom actually moved to Atlanta when I was in high school So I went to thousand state after graduating high school for about a year and a half, and then at certain point came to visit my mom and a friend of mine his older brother was going to Clark Atlanta University a historically black college. I went to the campus. Saw Beautiful Campus I saw beautiful women and I said I have to go here one day. So I transferred transferring from Saudi state to Clark Atlanta and the you know had half my family was already here so. Ended up staying and just building. Building out my business here, and it'll be started started in music industry in Atlanta. And in that time, he builds up a pretty enviable client list to have to say like Jay z outcast, can you take back to that time? What what can have brought e to setting? Is It D. Day and statements and some of the this the standout moments from that time. Yeah I mean so many it's been twenty years It all happened very much like podcasting kind of by accident I've always been into our entrepreneur started my first company when I was about eighteen years old shirt COMP design company Printing Company which I learned from Tom, this profit organization that I was working with. So I was always been business-minded my my dad his own construction company or has own construction company. So I've always seen him write his own business as well and. When I got to Atlanta. We just for in this music scene that was very Coming up like yet outcasts yet goodie mob TLC, usher and we kind of just. Went to this party and met a few people start networking a few business cards and decided, hey, we should just. Hang out with these people and start to promote and pass out flyers in. Other the company actually started because we were losing money I was the only one with a car. So it was causing gas money to go from point eight point be so I said, hey guys, we've got a pool our money together to share in these losses in eventually someone said, hey, how much you guys charge to put up those posters and we got to come up with a number that's count started the business but it evolved from there obviously from running a promotions company out of the Dorm Room Clark Atlanta to. You know taking artists like masterpiece in Yeah Jay Z. His. In promoting concerts in the going on the road with artists like outkast and Goodie mob and that evolved into management. An are in the and the names started getting bigger and bigger and not just the names bigger. But my relationship with the artists at first, you're a little bit. Distanced from the creative process, you're only on the promotions and marketing side. That I became more involved in the creation of albums, the management of talent stuff like that. So it was it's been great I mean I've traveled the world three times artists toured you know Africa with Chris Brown in the US with With usher festivals all over the world. So I there's so many standout said it's fun to talk about it because I forget a lot of them but the it's like having two different two different careers in two different lives. Almost you know I'm really interested in how you and your kind of tie founder at tend to fit came to mate. So you okay founder is pain Lindsey, and in a prior life he was in this hybrid even describe them. But like rap rock bands cooled rights here the tree. So interested in night walk forces combined that the you T to mate and and start working together. Is another interesting story so we I I didn't know who pain was, but I knew who the band was right his right side of the tree and he. Yeah the music was so and it's all. It's all about like how you introduced to something. It really has a big impact of what you initially feel about it. So I was managing an artist's name. Lloyd, who was on what he was on Atlantic or universal at the time. But big RB artists that Atlanta and he had producer that pain in his the rest of his band and they ended up collaborating in doing a song. So pain had a song with a very popular Atlanta artist. So new the band from from that perspective and like the music and then. Probably three years later or more actually probably the five years later I got an. Email from a guy named pain Lindsay I'm I've moved on in my career and I'm managing a new artist on on the verge of breaking through and I get an email from pain saying, Hey, I'm money's pain Lindsey A mutated director and I love the shoot a video for your artist and. I didn't know who he didn't recognize the name but a friend of mine who having dinner with me at the time I read the email and he said Oh that's pain from rice out of the tree I said okay. Well, maybe I'll give this guy a shot because before I wasn't sure if you we already have people to do our videos, but because of that connection already knew who he was like. Okay that's that's cool. There's. You know there's tried out. So we shot one video for a couple thousand dollars turn out to be great. He was able to I wasn't quite sure like how good he would be. So I kind of was forcing my creative ideas on him but any and you made them come out great and then we did that times and then I said man, this guy's good I should probably just let him run with the creative ideas and have him bring the video back with his full vision and when he did that the biggest got even better. So I just knew like we have a really good working relationship being able to hear each other right and being able to collaborate creatively and in respecting each other from creative and business standpoint. So. It was like the foundation of US later becoming business partners
Why Do We Get Bags Under Our Eyes?
"When I was growing up, I had a science teacher named Mr Thayer. He had these really deep set eyes with dark circles around them and loose baggy skin underneath at the time. I thought his eyes were really cool like they made him. Look wise and knowledgeable, and now I'm probably the same age Mr Thera was then and I've got bags under my eyes, but they don't seem as cool now. They just make me look tired all the time, but here's the thing sooner or later. All of us are going to have them. We all get bags under our eyes. So what causes them anyways? And how should we treat them? Them, well, there are lots of possible causes for what scientifically known as para, orbital, hyper chromium, but the most obvious one is aging see, we may not like to talk about this in certain circles, but we all have fat above below and behind our is for cushioning. This is in case. Something slams into your I like say a fist. The fat will take most of the blow and save your SCO from some damage, but as we get older, the Septum orbital ligaments in our skin decompose, and all that gooey fat pushes down, and out in the skin, loosens into swollen puffy bags, and this thin weeks skin exposes the tiny blood vessels underneath making our fat. I bags. Look Darker. Also as we lose volume around our is our orbital bones are exposed creating a kind of depressed gutter, revealing our eyes sockets. If you've already got forward, said is in receiving cheekbones. Those gutters are going to look even deeper, and there are reasons other than aging that contribute to these lovely dark fat bags under our eyes genetic help if your mother or father have eye bags, you probably will to also any kind of fluid buildup around the is is going to make the bags worse because fat cells are mainly made of water sinus infections from. For instance, which I often get stretched the skin under your eyes, even more also crying right before bed, which I often do has the same effect when you get bags under your eyes from fluid retention like this there most noticeable in the morning, other causes of water attention under your eyes can include salty food and premenstrual hormonal changes, and let's face it if you're up late. Burning the candle at both. Both ends that doesn't help either neither does a lack of exercise, but if you're really looking for something else to blame, those dark circles are sometimes caused by an excess of Melanin pigmentation deposits in the skin. So I know you're all out there, wondering but Christian. What's your secret? How do you treat your bags? Well? Of course, you can always cover them up with makeup or you can turn to. To your friendly neighborhood doctor for needles and SCALPELS 's for instance, dermatologists often inject wrinkle fillers with awesome names like Juvenile Durham and wrestling under eye muscles to reduce their baggage mix that with some bow talks, and you'll look years younger. It's only a couple thousand dollars every eight months, or you can spend big and go under the knife for surgery. The official name is Blah Ferro plastic and how it. It works is the doctor makes a few incisions in your eyelid melts the fat inside of there, and either removes it or repositions it sometimes they even add more with fat grafts, then they tuck in the remaining loose skin and use lasers to firm it up, sounds cool right, and if pigment is your problem, they can blasted with intense pulse lights to destroy your cells and smooth out your skin. Okay so maybe you're thinking now. Christian I don't want someone to stab me in the eyes or Christian I'm cool with the stabbing in the burning, but that surgery sounds awfully expensive well, here's a couple home remedies I can share with you if the bags under your eyes are from fluid retention rather than aging, you can cool something like a cucumber slice or tea bags and place them on your is. The cold will restrict your blood vessels and reduce the swelling. Some people. Cream made a fish cartilage compounds to. To keep the vessels from expanding in the first place, you can also try sleeping with an extra pillow to elevate your head, so the fluid just drains out of your face while you're sleeping or change the position you're sleeping in like if you have one of those weird one droopy eyelids, that's probably because you sleep on your side and gravity is taking effect. People put all kinds of stuff on their eyelids to reduce swelling everything from vitamins to Henry Cream, and some recommend that you quit cigarettes and put sunscreen. Your eyes because both smoking and sunlight can weaken the Collagen in your face and cause premature fat bag sagging. So here's the deal. We may not like the bags under our eyes, but they're usually harmless, but if you've got swollen, red, itching painful is, you should probably go see a doctor.
How to Maximize Points and Miles on Hawaiian Airlines
"Just had the opportunity to interview Hawaiian Airline's CEO. Peter Ingram Got a really great story and you know makes you feel warm and fuzzy about the airline. Especially since they're celebrating their ninetieth birthday this week but with you I I wanNA talk about tactically. How do you use Hawaiian Airlines miles? How'd you earn them because their product is pretty good these days? But it's not so in order to to redeem especially in business class so let's get into the fundamentals. What are your overall thoughts on the Hawaiian Airlines Loyalty Program? Well generally speaking thing. You know. Hawaiian Airlines since they don't belong to a one of the major alliances they have struck individual partnerships with select carriers. And unfortunately when you compare them to the likes of say in Alaska Airlines there isn't a ton of value to be had there They did just go through an award. Charts adjustments where they shifted not directly to dynamic award pricing. They now have up to eight different tiers of awards so eight different prices that you could find on economy tickets and and some pretty high award rate so there is some value to be had. But it's really important to compare the number of miles you'd need for an award ticket with the actual cash price to make sure it's a a decent redemption in if you want to say you have some Hawaii Miles. How do you top up your account to transfer into what programs transfer into Hawaiian so you can entrance them from American Express membership rewards? That's probably the best option because a actually run transfer bonuses in the past in fact just earlier this year September October they had a twenty five percent. Bonus offer there. If you're sitting on a lot of Mary outbound void points. You can also transfer those. That's traditional three to one ratio. And then you've got five five thousand miles extra for every sixty thousand points that you transfer so those are the two options that you have to kind of top up your Hawaiian account and and I think it is important to note that Marriott transfers can take awhile and what they have. I think one hundred eighty thousand points a day cap which sounds like a lot. But you know when you're only getting twenty thousand for sixty thousand points. That's not a whole lot of point at seventy five thousand Hawaiian miles. If I'm doing the math correctly. Yeah with the bonus yes exactly and you know and when you look at some of their award rates I mean a one way first. Class ticket from the west coast of the United States to Hawaii frequently comes in at eighty thousand and miles. There is a lower tier forty thousand miles but more often than not. It's that eighty thousand miles. So yeah definitely something you want to take a look at the pricing before you commit to the transfer I mean. How much are those tickets? How much is a one way? I cost ticket from. La To Honolulu on their eight three thirty like on average price. Would you say like. Is it worth it to use those eighty thousand for that or are you not really getting much more than one cent per you generally wouldn't be getting a whole lot more than one cent per point you know. Especially if I was looking at the difference between transferring my Amex points I get such value out of Amex point through other transfer partners like British Airways Adios or air candidate Aero Plan. So if you you can find an award at forty thousand miles for first class absolutely positively jumping it. Those are quite rare for eighty thousand. Miles you definitely would wanna look at the pay ticket even if it is a couple thousand dollars to three or four thousand dollars for that ticket That's a lot of miles to use for a what is really early from the West Coast is a relatively short flight. And how is award availibility from their New York to Honolulu competes. JFK Honolulu competes directly with United's Newark McDonald Lulu on a on a seven sixty seven. Although Hawaiians product is way better than the United Seven. Sixty seven in my opinion well on the one hand The the Nice thing is that having these additional tiers of awards is that oftentimes you can find award availability. It's just similar to Delta in that. It's a frequently. Uh Not really affordable. So if you're talking about that low level Forty Thousand Mile Ticket. That's going to be relatively scarce from the east coast if you're talking about JFK. Hey or the the flight from Boston that they launched a recently the next tier amount for a one way first class ticket is one hundred thirty thousand Hawaiian Miles. So that can can really take a lot of your Points away if you're transferring for Marriott or from Amex and if you are going to pay for a ticket does it make sense you know. Say you're GONNA bite like the bullet book. A family of four and first class spending five thousand dollars. Does it make sense to Bank Hawaiian Miles to Hawaiian program. We value their points at what point nine cents disappoint or should you bank those points to partners like Korean or virgin or even jetblue. Yeah I would personally recommend not banking them to Hawaiian the two on the list. That I personally really like would be virgin. Atlantic's flying club or the jetblue trueblue program Virgin Atlantic has some really great partner redemptions Jet Blue is revenue base but flies all over the US. So it's relatively simple program to at least get Kinda mid level value out of I personally would rather there have point sitting in one of those accounts then Hawaiian Miles. That might potentially not get used. Just because they're a war charts aren't truly that

My Paid Mastermind Experiment. Is It Worth It?
"And in today's lesson. You'll learn my paid mastermind experience is it worth it is it worth paying for masterminding being part of a group. I wanted to six PM personally to find out and because our previous episode on masterminding and the different options. Got a lot of buzz. Got a lot of listens on a lot of people are wondering will I get more value? If I pay for my mastermind opposed to creating it myself with people that I know, well, I recently joined a paid coaching program that has a mastermind or a community that you pay for to be part of. Community and there's certain criteria. So you can qualify any part of that community, and it's not exactly cheap. Either a has to be worth at just not worth paying every month. I'll be sharing what I learned. What you get out of it with the difference is when you have a paid mastermind how people in that group act differently than those groups that you don't pay for then, of course, the bottom line. Is it worth it? Should you? Invest in paying to be part of a group. You can get answers behind improve your business. We get into all that in today's lesson. So let's get into it. Let's get data business. A very special special spot here. I now we're with Jordan harbor from the Jordan harbinger show. You may have heard me speak about the journal Harmer's show on a previous episode earlier this month talking about my top podcast recommendations Jordan's great to have you. Thanks for having me on appreciate it. The Jordan harbor show is a huge huge hit one best of items this past year, super proud of that. But one of the things I love about your show. And what I think our listeners a love about your show is the fact that you get the best out of world class leaders and performers. You ask questions that no one asks on any other show? How do you kind of get the best outta them? What do you do? How do you prepare for that? So I spend about maybe eight to twenty hours preparing for each interview. Which is extremely important because I want to make sure that I get things that nobody else does. I wanna get insights stories that they haven't told anywhere else. That's really tough. When you're talking about a celebrity or an entrepreneur that's been on the world stage for a long time. So you recently had Cesar Milan on your show. How did you prepare for his interview? So I I watched which wasn't too hard a bunch of episodes of the dog was for which is great. And I did a ton of research on him on Google. I spoke with people that knew him. I spoke with some people that worked with him at the dog psychology center. And I got a lot of insight because he's got some books as well. Actually that I read in preparation for this. It was not that easy for a guy who's been around as long as him. There's a lot of information that I had to parse a love it. Grab your phone guys. Subscribe to the Jordan harm your show right now. Like, I mentioned at the top of the peseta, Nicole have joined a coaching program that also includes being part of a mastermind group a group on Facebook group where you can shy. We'd do video calls as well. We're you can ask people for advice to get questions beheld accountable. And this is really the first time I've paid to be part of a group like this and full disclosure. This is a two thousand dollars a month group. It's not cheap. But it's a good example to see is it really worth it. How is it different than being part of a mastermind that you don't pay for one that you form on your own with the people that you know, I've done this several times. And in fact, I am part of a mastermind group that is not paid currently still. So it's easy for me to compare. So let's talk about some differentiate is the first thing you notice when you enter a paid group like that is that the group is a whole lot more active. People are asking questions people were commenting people are giving advice people are sharing winds in celebrating. When there's live calls people are there. People don't miss them. There's just a lot more activity, and people are just taking it a lot more. Seriously, why because they invested in the paid money, and they want to get out of it as much as possible. And as we know we get out of something as much as we put in. So this is the number one benefit out same as well. I'm starting with this. Because a lot of times when you start a mastermind group on your own you have a group of four or five people you meet regularly. Let's say once a month, you might have a slack channel or Facebook group that you form so you can check in fourth. But it becomes less of a priority effort couple of months or maybe even half a year. Why these get busy and you start to realize, you know, I don't have time for this. And when one person doesn't participate as much as the other it starts snowball. But whenever group like this. Everybody's paying people are really trying their best at the most out of it. And because they do that they get a lot out of it. So you're gonna get a lot more tivi. Lot more participation a lot more feedback from your questions and the things that you share with the group number two. When you're paying your not afraid to ask for help, your not afraid to get more out of it, you expect more. Hey, I'm paying money. I need to get better. I need my questions answered I need feedback. If I'm, you know launching a new product new idea, I wanna feedback expected because hey, I'm paying money. So you're not gonna go dormant when you're doing that when you're paying money, you're not gonna go dormant you're expecting of expectations, and therefore you're really going to be active. The next thing is that when you're paying for program. It kind of becomes a barrier to entry allows it to kind of filtered self to people that are serious that are willing to invest in themselves that are making enough money where this is a reasonable investment for them right now in the stage of their business. Sometimes we'll Curie a group of people that we know, and there are different levels in their business there, maybe not be as serious movies, just the site hustle for them for you. It's the full-time thing. It's, you know, everything's on the line here, you need to make sure that you succeed in business because that's how you pay your bills. If you're in. A group of people that are not in that same position. It could be the motivating for you. It could be not supportive for you. But if you have some sort of criteria like paying a monthly fee, then everybody kind of is on the same level. There's other criteria for this group as well. Like, you have to be making least ten K or something like that and sales. You get the point the ping is a filter and a way to kind of get people to Bill serious and be at a certain level in their business. Number four. This is a big thing that I really appreciate an paid group is that it's highly organized, whoever is chairing or organizing, this group has the obligations and surcharging to make sure it's organized that they are regular meet up in events, and there's a regular calls and the discussions are moderated. And maybe even curated so you're getting a more efficient and more. I would say enjoyable experience because his organize I would compare this to you know, playing pick a basket. Ball and joining a league where you pay every month, and you get uniforms, and you get refs new or a nice indoor court, and there's a digital scoreboard. And all that stuff. If just is a better experience for you. And you get that experience because you're paying and sometimes a better experiences all you need to really get into a groove. And to really get the most out of a paid mastermind also allows you to network and meet people that you normally wouldn't people that are doing some pretty interesting things some significant things feel that are building businesses when you create a mastermind yourself, or even if you join one it's usually people, you know, and it really doesn't revolve past that group in a paid system in a paid group. There's new members coming all the time there's formal introductions there's way to kind of network there might be ano- meet ups in the real world, you know, in real life. So as a great way for you to build your professional network as well, especially especially if your product or service can serve their needs. A lot of times in those groups their products and services, the other people who serve your needs sue so you can support them as well. So I just highlighted a whole bunch of vantage is paid memberships. What about disadvantages while obviously, you know, you gotta pay. That's one advantage rights, not free. What about anything else? Any other disadvantages? I noticed so far not really actually not have to say. Disclaimer, I've only been part of this group for a month. I might do an update, you know, six months or year from now, but so far in summary. It has been worth it's hard to drop a large chunk of change on a regular basis. But it's a great way for you to get the training, you need the get the guidance you need to be a part of a good group of people that are going to motivate you into inspire you to keep moving forward and get better in your business. You got to invest in yourself, especially as the leader of your company at some point your business. You're just not going to be able to do the same things and expect you know, growth, you have to start doing different things you have to start learning from other companies. The learn from other experts, and that's just not gonna come by itself. You're gonna have to have to seek it out and sometimes pay for and that's totally fine. People pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for medical school to become a doctor thing. Couple thousand dollars a month to learn business and become a better business, and to forge relationships and to really, you know, evolve as an entrepreneur is a pretty good investment.
