"Yeah, I know, I know. And I know that would be music for your ears. But let me just say a couple of things. First, really bless a priority for the mayor. Chancellor banks is an old friend to the facilitates the engagement. So we were talking the moment that he got that he got appointed. And there's a couple of things where we are working very closely. One is trying to signal to the students as early as possible. Maybe around tenth graders or so. Some of the things that they might want to do in order to be totally fully college ready to come to cuny, right? As opposed to waiting for somebody, graduating and then finding out that they might need to do some additional work because that didn't have all the math that they need or the English. If we have the tools, right? To have a sense of where their student might be going. As early as tenth grade, why are we not intentional engaging that student and their families? They end them know about some of the options that they might have available to be able to be totally college ready. There's some interventions that cuny has, right? We've been, for example, in our college now courses, which are corners, college courses, as students taking high school. Putting co curriculum material, right? If we think that you might need what we call remediation to go to a community college and we have a class that meets a requirement, why don't we put that in the college town so you have that many and you have that available for you, senior year, and then your college ready to come to cuny. So we're doing all those things to signal, I'll tell you as possible the college right now and then provide a menu of options so that you are ready. We also would love to do that connecting with thinking about careers, going back to one.

"We are sort of one of the main educational partners looking at curriculum based on what they need and bringing that into our classroom to get our students a student ready to be responsive to that. We have a faculty fellows program because faculty are a key part of the equation, so they bring back in each different area, how they can be more responsive to making students be ready for the world of work. I want to go down in history as a patron saint of paid internships for our students. If you think about paying internship, it does, it puts money in the students pockets, right? So it helps to address transportation issues, for insecurity issues, some of the things that you and I know are impediments to completing high school and college. And then it has the ROI of giving you an experience of the world of work. So we have intensified our efforts in that area. We have cuny launch with support from the mayor, as part of this budget, opportunities this summer for 2000 student entrance. We have prioritized students who have been not have an internship before. We have so far 11,000 applicants for those 2000 spots, right? So the students are more spots. The employers are hungry for that. And the last thing I say about this pay internships, which we're replicating all over, actually, we might be doing some work with the MTA on this area you said you had Thanos as one of your guests is that we have data. The students who participated in a pay internship, they graduate faster, right? And when they go to work immediately after graduating, they get a job faster and their first time pay is higher. So those are all areas that we are really, really doubling down in partnership with employers. And I think it's particularly important in this time of the recovery of New York that we double down on those efforts. Any work being done to fill that gap of the 2000 spots with 11,000 applicants. I mean, is there anything you can do? And is the private sector pulling its weight in terms of internships? One of the good things is that once we identify that you're interested, there's other programs we can connect you with, right? One great model, it began after sandy with the cuny service corps, which.

"But I want to ask you, we're speaking here on Thursday, June 23rd, most people won't hear this for a few more days, but the Supreme Court just handed down a ruling in this gun case in New York and there's this discussion right away that with the Supreme Court striking down a New York law that makes it much more difficult for people to carry concealed weapons. There's going to be a lot of assessment coming up in the courts among lawmakers about sort of special places where concealed gun carrying will be prohibited certain restrictions and laws are allowed to be enacted in the wake of this. I just wanted to see if you had a reaction to this. And if, you know, how cuny as a system is going to be thinking about this because universities are one of the first places that people talk about is some of these protected, particularly special places where such rules might need to be applied. So I mean, I can think of three things that come to mind as I was told to their role. One is that at the end of the day, right? The three university will abide by the ongoing loss of the state and the country. So I would imagine that this case will invite the ongoing rethinking about what kinds of logical safety precautionary measures can be taken to address this gun violence wave that we have in a way that is consistent with our constitutional framework, right? And I think that we have found times that even though folks can be disappointed in a court ruling in that direction and just invites our lawmakers to really sort of hone down a bit more and find a way in which, you know, in accordance to the constitution, we can create some spaces where. Guns are not to be found, right? I would think that our college campuses places are sort of bringing large numbers of people that have people also not just students. We have community events and all those things, right? That you want to have the least amount of presence of guns, right? That can lead to an unfortunate incident..

"I think what <Speech_Male> remains to be seen <Speech_Male> is it really <Speech_Male> in crunch time, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> how <Speech_Male> the university advocates, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you know, with <Silence> the state <Speech_Male> and the city. <Speech_Male> And then <Speech_Male> as well, when we <Speech_Male> come up for <Speech_Male> contract negotiations, <Speech_Male> again, in spring of 2023, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I think there <Speech_Male> in two, <Speech_Male> we were hopeful <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> that value <Speech_Male> in terms of <Speech_Male> what we do day <Speech_Male> in and day out, <Speech_Male> serving the specific <Speech_Male> student population <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> we serve the <Speech_Male> mission that <Speech_Male> the university <Speech_Male> was founded <Speech_Male> on and that all of <Speech_Male> us are so dedicated <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> whether that <Speech_Male> has a corresponding <Speech_Male> value <Speech_Male> in <SpeakerChange> contract negotiations <Speech_Male> as well. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Is there any <Speech_Male> chance really <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> the cuny Chancellor, <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> board of trustees, <Speech_Male> any <Silence> significant <Speech_Male> number, <Speech_Male> getting behind <Speech_Male> the new deal <Speech_Male> for cuny and <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> differentiating <Speech_Male> cuny <Speech_Male> leadership <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> publicly, <Speech_Male> there's <Speech_Male> requests out there as <Speech_Male> you noted ahead <Speech_Male> of budget season. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> taking on a <Speech_Male> more active role, as <Speech_Male> you said, sort of getting <Speech_Male> out from under what <Speech_Male> had been <Speech_Male> seemingly sort of <Speech_Male> total adherence <Speech_Male> to the Cuomo administration <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and having a little bit <Speech_Male> of a different identity. <Speech_Male> Is there any real hope for that <Speech_Male> or because it's such <Speech_Male> a creature of <Speech_Male> the state and <Speech_Male> under <Speech_Male> gubernatorial leadership <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> in <Speech_Male> such a way <Speech_Male> that that's <Speech_Male> not possible? <Speech_Male> No, I do think it's <Speech_Male> possible. I mean, whether <Speech_Male> the university administration <Speech_Male> will fly <Speech_Male> the banner or <Speech_Male> a brand, a <Speech_Male> campaign the way we <Speech_Male> would, you know, <Speech_Male> with our coalition <Speech_Male> partners, we have <Speech_Male> coalition <Speech_Male> partners in labor and <Silence> student groups and <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> community is going to frame <Speech_Male> things the way they do. But in <Speech_Male> terms of the actual priorities <Speech_Male> that are <Speech_Male> in the new deal <Speech_Male> for cuny in terms of the <Speech_Male> priorities that are inside <Speech_Male> that legislation, there's <Speech_Music_Male> no reason <Speech_Male> why <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> their interests are not <Speech_Male> aligned with <Speech_Male> ours. We're <Speech_Male> all we <Speech_Male> are <Speech_Male> looking really to <Speech_Male> drive resources <Speech_Male> into this <Speech_Male> university <Speech_Male> and to target those <Speech_Male> resources in specific <Speech_Male> directions <Speech_Male> and specific <Speech_Male> areas. And <Speech_Male> we may have disagreements <Speech_Male> about particulars, <Speech_Male> where our resources <Speech_Male> should go. <Speech_Male> But I think at the end of <Speech_Male> the day, <Speech_Male> they <Speech_Male> share those commitments. <Speech_Male> And I think it's worth <Silence> remembering <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> we have <Speech_Male> in our <Speech_Male> state and our <Silence> city legislature <Speech_Male> both. An <Speech_Male> enormous number <Speech_Male> of alumni <Speech_Male> of these institutions, <Speech_Male> right? So <Speech_Male> we have right now <Speech_Male> an attorney general, <Speech_Male> for example, she <Speech_Male> doesn't vote on the <Speech_Male> budget, but we have <Speech_Male> an attorney general who's a Lehman <Speech_Male> college <Speech_Male> graduate, right? We have <Speech_Male> at least one candidate <Speech_Male> and counting <Speech_Male> maybe for governor <Speech_Male> who's <Speech_Male> a cuny <Speech_Male> graduate. We <Speech_Male> have <Speech_Male> leaders in both <Speech_Male> chambers who have <Speech_Male> cuny degrees <Speech_Male> and we have an incoming mayor <Speech_Male> who has two cuny <Speech_Male> degrees. So, <Speech_Male> you know, I think it's <Speech_Male> a bit of a false <Speech_Male> kind of opposition <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> because their management, <Speech_Male> they kind of can't get on <Speech_Male> board with <Speech_Male> what the union <Speech_Male> is advocating. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Again, they may brand <Speech_Male> it differently, but <Speech_Male> I think they should climb <Speech_Male> on board and call <Speech_Male> it whatever they'd <SpeakerChange> like <Silence> and push for the <Silence> same things. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> All right, <Speech_Male> we're going to leave it there, James <Speech_Male> Davis.

"Continue to raise new revenue, but when we see the numbers that are coming out of the comptroller's office, about the state surplus, we see that the surplus in the city, as well, what we see what's likely or possible to happen in terms of federal investment in the state and the city through build back better, which I know is not a done deal. It doesn't seem crazy to say that several, if not all of these big ticket items could actually be done. And done really well. So I guess, I mean, I hear you on the point that we need to prioritize, but I also think that when you actually look at what the lift is to accomplish these things, it may be possible to not have to divide up the same piece of different pieces in the same old pie, but to be able to say, okay, actually, we're working with a different pie now, and it can be quite bigger. And again, you know, we have to take a step back and just think about the fact that even if cuny were funded at the same per student rate that we were in 1990 today, there would already be $920 million more in cuny's budget. So there's been such a steady and sharp erosion. You know, that we just have a long way to climb back. So, I mean, I hear the force of the question. It's a real question. It's a political question that will certainly be challenging for us and for the legislature and for all the advocates in the months to come. But I think we do have to think about it in the context of not just trying to be additive here, but trying to reclaim really what was rightfully in this university up until a decade or two decades ago. We are in our last couple minutes here with James Davis, the president of the professional staff Congress of cuny talking about the city university system and where it stands and challenges and goals, especially, of course, from the perspective of the SE cuny. All right, last couple of questions, James and appreciate the time here. The Chancellor.

"To kind of make the university whole from that, but also to step really in a bold way forward into the 21st century and say, okay, how could QD become, again, a real crown jewel in terms of public higher education systems in the United States? So what would that mean concretely? Well, one thing I think it's a very good signal is that the university of administration has actually put forward a budget that really begins to request what they need, what the university really needs to begin to build back from those years of austerity funding. And so I guess one in answer to that question, what would I love to see in the state of the state address or in the governor's executive budget would be first things first to fulfill the request that the cuny border trustees administration approved and brought forward from the state level, that would mean an additional 313 $1 million above last year's enacted state budget on the city side, which we could talk about next, but that's there's an additional 103 million requested over and above last year's enacted city budget. So these are not actually sounds like a lot of money, but they're not actually in Albany terms. These are not big asks, but they would go a long distance stored towards trying to make whole some of the really problematic developments that we started to talk about earlier. And then I would go one farther than that, part B is we, along with our partners in the cuny rising alliance developed over the past couple of years a piece of legislation, you're probably familiar with the new deal for cuny. And the new deal for cuny has several components to it. But some of the budget requests that university put forward actually tracks very closely with the platform in the new deal for cuny. So for example, part of the budget request for that additional 313 million from the state has to do with China's beginning to replenish our ranks of full-time faculty and beginning to professionalize the working conditions for our adjunct faculty, just for one thing. You know, there's also a strong request in cuny's own budget for the coming year for increase in mental health counselors, mental health counseling is something that's always been important at cuny. It's never been more important than it is now, you know, after 1819 months of a horrible pandemic. So there's many ways in which cuny is on budget requests is starting to reflect the shape and the contours and the substance of what we brought forward last year and began to make some headway on new deal for cuny legislation. Look, there's other pieces in the new dealer cuny, but the flashiest piece. And I think the direction that to come back to your question about governor hoku, you know, governor hokke could begin to move cuny again back to being tuition free for in state undergraduate students. And that may sound like a pipe dream, but listeners.

"Responsibility at the time governor Cuomo needs to really step up and take more ownership at the MTA. And that happened to a large degree and yet that that hasn't happened with cuny. Do you agree with that assessment and now that we have governor hoel in office, what are you hoping for in terms of state leadership taking more quote unquote ownership of yeah it's so important not to get you to comment at all on the MTA, although you can't if you want to. I love the MTA analogy because I'm a subway rider all the time. I love MTA. But I think it's a good analogy because look, much in the same way that the MTA can at times become like a political football between the mayor and the governor and if they're feuding, it doesn't bode well for the MTA and other agencies like that. In a similar way, you know, all too often cuny has become a political football in some kind of a competition between our former governor and the mayor. And I think what we're hopeful about here at the PSC right now is that that kind of long running feud between the governor and the mayor know in which really cuny students were the greatest sort of casualty. That will see a change, of course, on that. And then we'll see better collaboration, better communication. And overall, in the end, better support for cuny. I mean, let's remember that it was only not that long ago, just a few years back, the governor during during the budget cycle threatened to cut almost half a $1 billion, $485 million from cuny's budget in a kind of attempt to try to get the de Blasio administration to on the wrong foot and to pick up the bill on that. And that's just that's just so cruel to an institution into the students who ultimately would be hurt if that cut were to go through..

"The enrollment drops that had been happening and said, okay, we're going to bring people back to campus. Students want to learn in person and then Delta hit. And it was very hard for the university administration to see that they needed to pivot. And at that point, they did not have a vaccine mandate for students. They were waiting on the vaccine mandate from the FDA to approve it for non emergency use. And so we had a very messy entry transition into the fall semester where they had really overshot on really the viability of holding certain percentage of in person classes without having a vaccinated in person student body. We didn't have a mask mandate. You know, in August, the union really had to push for a strong mask mandate. And even now, I mean, you know, I could talk more about it if you'd like. But even now, you know, we're still trying to press university to give us the kind of ventilation data in our room by room, office by office basis so that we know when people are entering those classrooms, whether it's our members or our students, that there is sufficient airflow, you know, a lot of these buildings are non HVAC buildings. So we're talking about literally the ability to open a window or hopefully more than one. So where things stand now as I was talking here on December 15th, there is a vaccination requirement for students who are attending in person classes. There is not a vaccination requirement for faculty and staff. And as far as I know, there haven't been any real outbreaks or issues related to cuny classrooms or campuses as far as we know at this point. Is that all correct? Yeah, that's all accurate. And so is there anything around vaccinations, testing that you want to see change before the next semester begins? Should at this point, there'd be a faculty staff vaccine mandate for cuny? Yeah. I mean, I keep expecting that the university will will seek to implement that. And I think the union's position, unlike some other labor unions in the city, has not been to try to oppose or to press a lawsuit. If that were to come, we're eager to try to negotiate implementation if the university were to seek to impose a vaccine mandate on faculty and staff. As of yet, you know, they have not done that, but we're certainly prepared to sit down with them and look at what that would mean for the faculty and staff. And look, I mean, at the end of the day, I think that what everyone at the university really wants is that there'll be multiple layers of protection in place. And I think right now what we have is, we've had to press at every step along the way. You know, for the university to introduce additional and more rigorous layers of protection, nobody is ever going to be perfectly safe. We've learned that.

"Cuny's funding partners in order to really lift that at the table and make the kind of structural change in the wages that we really need to see. And I think we made we made a huge dent in that in the last round, but we'll be continuing that fight when we go back to the table in spring of 2023. And we jump right into sort of your membership and some of those details about full-time faculty and adjunct. But let's now talk about where things stand at cuny cuny campuses. It's very hard sometimes to talk about just, you know, what's happening at cuny. There's obviously many, many campuses, many differences, but generally speaking from your perspective, your union's perspective, how are things right now related to conditions on campuses in classrooms in terms of safety, amid the pandemic in terms of vaccine requirements, testing requirements, ventilation, all of those things that, of course, your members are extremely interested in and worried about where do things stand and what are you looking to change your as we look ahead to the next semester coming in the spring? Yeah. Another important question. It is foremost on the minds of our members. And on the minds of students as well, I think at the end of the day, I think everyone, whether a student, staff member or faculty member, you know, some people love teaching online, some people learning online, love learning online, and there's a place for that, but I think a lot of folks want to be. They want to be back. They want to be working with students. They want to be face to face. The issue is that it's twofold. One is that none of us has a crystal ball and can really determine much as we were looking at the delta variant emerging late in the summer through a wrench into the best laid plans for the fall semester. Here we have a new variant that appears to be even more contagious than delta. It's not totally clear what the impact is going to be in terms of the severity on people who have been vaccinated. But you know I'm just hearing about the outbreak at Cornell and them having to close that campus down. You know, with something like now I think today I'm hearing 900 students documented as having been infected. And so obviously nobody wants to be. In a position where you're making students faculty and staff members vulnerable any more than they need to be to do a vicious and very contagious variant of this pandemic. So where does that leave us? So the other piece of it in addition to the course of the virus itself is just the variability that I think you know correctly referred to in the conditions across our many campuses. So, you know, 25 different colleges, including the professional schools, we have some we have some 300 buildings around the university. Some of them were built literally 60, 70, 80 more years ago. And some are brand new. And so there's a lot of variability from campus to campus. Because of the disinvestment in cuny that I was referring to earlier, there are buildings in many campuses that have suffered for a long time pre-pandemic from deferred maintenance. And so a lot of the work that cuny and I give them a lot of credit for this, a lot of the work that cuny was doing during the pandemic when there weren't a lot of students on the campus, faculty and staff mostly off the campus, was to try to make the kinds of repairs..

"It's a good question to start off the conversation because those numbers kind of jump right out at you. Yeah, I mean it's for context, it's worth considering that back in the mid 1970s, we can go back that far for a minute. Cuny had 24,000 fewer students in the university, but we had 4000 more approximately 4000 more full-time faculty members. So you can see the way that over time things have looked and the vast majority now, the instructional staff are on contingent appointments without access to real job security. So this is an area that the union has been struggling, biting at both at the negotiating table and also through legislation and budget to try to try to improve. And when I say improve, I mean that not in the sense that that individual adjunct faculty members are worse teachers than full-time faculty members or anything like that. I was an adjunct myself for four years. I don't consider adjunct instruction itself to be a problem. We have extraordinary adjuncts who regularly go above and beyond for our students. But the structure of the university is such that the budgets of the colleges are now effectively balanced on the backs of this large army of just in time professors who are paid much less and have much less access to job security and academic freedom than their full-time colleagues have and that that's not unique to cuny by any means. It's a story that one sees another institutions, but it's particularly acute ad institutions that have undergone the kind of systematic overtime disinvestment that cuny has suffered. And what has been the barrier to negotiating changes to that, that's obviously the job of your union among others. And support from elected officials and other players involved. But what's been the biggest barriers to not having this ratio continue to grow? Yeah. We actually made pretty significant breakthrough in the last round of negotiations. Where we managed to increase the minimum per course, wage for adjunct faculty at cuny by about 45%. It actually deserves to be significantly higher still. But we made a major campaign in the last round of negotiations. This wound up in 2019. And so we lifted the floor significantly, but of course the real answer to your question is just a budgetary one there isn't there isn't the political will there hasn't been to drive enough resources into our system that would actually lift that adjunct wage floor to where it really needs to be and where it really actually values the work that our faculty are doing day in and day out in the classroom in those titles. So, you know, I say that it's a budget issue. But I think that when we put it that way, it sounds like there is just some natural balance, but really we all know that budgets, you know, our political political documents, and there hasn't really been sufficient will Albany is our major funder, the city also funds, but there hasn't been significant investment in..

Tips That Will Massively Improve Your Sales Webinars

"Laura things a lot of people talk about is hell painful. It is to run a webinar and not make as many sales as you actually anticipate or hope to. I've learned the hard way time and time again. And tweak my saleswoman a presentation over and over to find out what really works and today i'm just gonna give it to you. I'm gonna give you the three things that if you do today in your next sales webinar. It's going to change your results. It's going to help you get more sales. This is what i found in my own experience. So let's jump right into it. The first tip is many of us when we run a sales webinar. We have the format of doing some sort of workshop training or coaching followed up with a demo or presentation or sales pitch of our product and then we have cuny. The problem is is that too many of us will say the women are sixteen minutes. We will maybe teach for forty five minutes get into our demo and pitch and because we don't have much time left to answer a few questions and we may even go over time and the webinar about an hour and fifteen minutes in this defeats. The purpose of a saleswoman are. The whole point of this was webinars to make sales. Okay so it needs to be your top priority. And i been guilty of this many times. And i actually didn't learn what i was doing wrong until i actually started asking feedback from people that attended my weber my My co hosts. If i did a partner webinar and they were just awesome. He told me that. Neil going to longer babies to content heavy and that was my fault because i come from teaching background. I just wanna give give give and teach teach teach. But i'm actually doing my customers a disservice because i'm not giving them enough time to learn about the product of the solution. That's gonna really help them and give them chances to ask questions about it. So what i found. Is that if you're going to run a sixty minute webinar. I find that the best breakdown is twenty five. Twenty fifteen now. This may feel a little bit uncomfortable but trust me twenty five minutes of content of workshop. This includes your introduction your backstory all that kind of stuff and given them great information

Do I Need To Lower My Prices?

"So gary in cuny wednesday if his prices are too high does needs a lower his prices for his e commerce store for his Designer cap business whenever we have questions like this in our business one of the things that really shines a light and gives. You clarity is data information. You need to gather hard numbers so that you can make a real informed decision on whether you should lower. Prices are not the first thing i want to point out. Is that Gary says that he had some sales and then things slowed down so he's not sure if they've slowed down because people just don't wanna pay for his caps at the price. He sells a four so the first hard number. We're going to look at is look at your website traffic. You should be tracking. The number of visitors are coming through website on a daily basis You could do this for free with google analytics. You subscribe to this podcast. You can search for several episodes that i Go through in detail how to use google analytics just search google analytics on one hundred on show both google analytics. You can take a look at how much traffic are getting to your website when sales were good a traffic light. And what about now if you have a less now. It's not a price problem. It's a marketing problem. You don't have enough people going to your store. You don't have enough people walking by and looking at your product and it's very common to see less sales when you have less traffic. This is why people trying to get more and more people to the website. They do facebook marketing. They do content marketing. They try to get people to know about their brands. They visit their website because they know more visitors equals more sales. So this is the first number you have to look at because this will tell you. Hey wait a minute. Maybe my prices are fine. But i need to increase my traffic. I need to get my customers at my sore. So what experiment. You could do is run some marketing campaigns whether it's content marketing with some blog posts whether it's through social media marketing whether it's paid marketing through facebook instagram ads. Whatever it is. Get the traffic that you used to get when sales were higher and see if the sales match see if you get more sales with that traffic now of course all traffic is not created equal. You want to try to target the right people that would love your product so this is really important when you're thinking about how to market market to the people that would most likely by so if you run that experiment you can run that for a few weeks you could see okay. Sales are picking up it because more people are coming so it's a marketing issue. It's not a price issue number two and these are any particular order but you really need to look at your numbers. Your profit margins. Some of us. We think that needs a lower prices but especially when you're in retail. That may not be an option okay. You need to make sure that you're making a healthy profit margins. You can't lower your prices if you're not gonna make a profit or reasonable profit to make your business worth it. I know this. Because i used to run my own. E commerce store over a decade ago. I used to run a clothing line. And i knew my margins. I knew i could lower certain items past the point because then it's going to be breaking even though not making any money so for example if you sell a cap for thirty dollars but a cost you fifteen to create in ship and deliver to your customer total cost. You really can't discount much. Maybe you can go down to twenty five but then you're really getting because there are other costs right. You have your only time. You have your website costs inventory and stocking cost all these running costs that run your business. This is why the numbers are so important. You need to know how much your business is costing you. This is why a lot of e commerce businesses get in trouble with their finances or with the financing of the business or the numbers of the business. Because it's not like they're selling one product of the same price they can just say here is the total cost less. Divide that number by the number of products. I have and this is the price of should be so i can be profitable. Every product has a different price. Every product has a different profit margin. So this is why your margins have to be pretty fat to cover any Discrepancies and make sure that when you sell your product you're giving back to your company to pay for expenses and then some. I'm very cautious about discounts. I do not recommend people to make major discounts or major sales where it cuts into their margins especially in retail. But if you do want discount you have to encourage people to spend more. Those are the best ways to run sales or promotions. Where you say you know you get fifteen percent off when you spend one hundred dollars or more. This encouraged at least the customer to buy more product and i know in retail. This is so important. You wanna get things off your shelf because it actually costs you money to have an inventory. Another way to do this is to have some sort of reward program where they can get a voucher for every x amount of dollars they spend at your source of they spend two hundred fifty dollars to get you know a twenty dollars gift certificate again getting them to come back to the sort and use certificate on a purchase so you gotta make sure that it makes sense for you to even changer

"cuny" Discussed on NewsRadio WIOD

"Particularly Republican leadership goes along with this impeachment, they'll destroy the party. While legal experts debate whether Congress could even impeach a former presidents, senators may have another tool to keep Trump from running again. In 2024. Article three of the 14th amendment says no person shall hold any office who shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion, while Congress could exercise their enforcement authority under the 14th amendment. To express its concerned opinion, it would be the hope the courts would accept that opinion. That's Mike Power reporting Well. Florida now exceeds 1.6 million cases of coronavirus since a pandemic began last year, nearly 12,000 new cases confirmed yesterday and that's along with 142 more deaths. Now is ahead. 55 points at 2 31,044. NASDAQ Up 85 the S and P right now is up by nine points. More news at 11 30 More Brian Mud Next. I'm Natalie Rodriguez News. Radio. 6 10 Wi OD Life himself. Florida Brian Mud Show starts right now Use radio 6 10 W. Y o D. We'll always be grateful for the opportunity that they gave us to serve. The way they allowed us to make a difference. The life of this nation. We inaugurated a new president and a new vice president and allow me to offer my congratulations, President Joe Biden Vice president Kamila Harris. Course. Former vice President Mike Pence was on hand for the inaugural. And course president was not as he broke with tradition and indeed ended up going back home. In fact, President Trump potentially watched the inauguration. The actual swearing in Amount and Mar a Lago as he is now citizen trump and we see What will be from here. But in the meantime, about President Trump's legacy time for today's CUNY of the day, every day I feature a listener questions submitted by one of these methods. You may email me. Right minded. I heard media dot com You may parlay or tweet me at primary radio, um, the parlor situation still not up and running as a social network. They have a home page again. And they're indicating that by the end of the month, they will be back up. I will certainly be there once again. One cent re emerges. Today's entry is this Ryan something I didn't hear you discuss yesterday in addressing President Trump's legacy or judges. Then, he said records for the number of federal judges confirmed. There's the whole thing yesterday. I mean, it was a bit of a bore. We had President Trump send off. We have the inauguration ceremony for President Biden. And you know, I started going through some of these themes in some of the accomplishments of President Trump yesterday, comparing to past presidents and like, and we ended up, you know, specifically by this time into the long form coverage of the United Girl itself, So that's what kind of want to reset things and walk you through. Getting away from the politics, getting away from personalities just Accomplishments, right so One of the things I was discussing. Specifically yesterday is the reason why I didn't even get into any judicial considerations with any presidents had talked about. The two most important aspect of the presidency, defined under the Constitution, first and foremost being commander in chief, So the defense and the protection of the country and the American people US. That is the paramount concern of any president of the United States. It supersedes any other conversation by a margin. Okay. From there, you take a look at what a president's tasked with doing it is aiding and You know? Helping improve the overall quality of life through opportunity in this country. Okay, so That's how to diminish the importance of a president's role in reshaping the judiciary. It is just to say that at least at the founding of this country Idea that judges wouldn't necessarily be another partisan branch of the government really was a view that way. So we actually had this idea that, for the most part, judges would be fair and impartial to the law. And well, we know that's not always the case, especially with a lot of high profile cases at the federal level. But anyway, eh, so I will address the full legacy of President Trump here, including the judiciary. But first I want to revisit some of the themes regarding President Trump independent of the judiciary just to take a look at its accomplishments. So first and foremost one thing that he absolutely did. He delivered a major agenda items. If you think about it, it's pretty remarkable. President Trump's administration featured a net de escalation of military conflict around the world. While having great military success. That is One heck of an ingot placement. We have fewer troops deployed around the world today. And we did the day that he was inaugurated. And one of his first acts as president. He had promised that he'd get after Isis and sure enough, and the earliest months of the Trump presidency absolutely crushed. Isis caliphate. It was a huge accomplishment. This led to the air of that the end of that terror network and their influence across the region for the most part, and it certainly ended the Isis inspired attacks in the United States. He also reached historic peace deals in the Middle East with the Abraham accords. So you have Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan and the United Arab Emirates that now recognize Israel for the first time in history. This is huge, and this came after he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U. S embassy there as well. These are massive, massive achievements. And you know not only the sense of foreign relations but also national defense and American security. Closer home President Trump successfully built over 400 miles of border Wall. Prioritizing the highest impact areas, which contributed to a greater than 50% decline in illegal immigration at our southern border last year. Of course, he also created a new branch of the Defense Department, which is the space force. You think about all this? I mean, Pretty incredible, right? All that accomplished inside the four years all things that he promised what happened? Course, one of the executive items that was signed by President Biden yesterday when the first things ending the construction of the border law. As for the economy.

Should I create multiple revenue streams?

"On. Today's cuny wednesday. Sheva asks should she sur building multiple streams of income as she starts working and making money online. And just for clarification. You know many people advise this like have multiple streams of income like make money on affiliate marketing but also make money with a product Also make money with the service and also make money through sponsorships and just basically trying to make money in so many different ways as much as possible. Now in theory having multiple streams of income is not a bad idea. It's bad advice. But if somebody told you start a business with this mindset with a strategy i would actually classify that as bad advice when you're getting started your whole goal should be to get a win to get some success to have one successful stream of income often. We don't recognize that our energy is limited. Our attention is limited our times ltd. And if we are spreading our focus against different initiatives at the star it'll be very hard for us to get traction and quickly get a win for our business you're goal should be to be profitable as a business to see something works. You can double and triple down. And then maybe that process in a different stream of income a different way a different product and a different service but a lot of people are trying to get five or six win simultaneously and. I don't think that's healthy. That's not a good use of your time. Your energy your effort. I want you to imagine you have five shopping carts filled with groceries. Okay and these shopping. Carts are all lined up at the start of an aisle in the supermarket. Have five cards five miles. Okay and your goal is to get all these shopping carts to the end of each aisle. Okay you only have a limited amount of energy and time so imagine you go to the first car and you push a little. Maybe a few feet. Then you go to the next car. Then you push the next one a few feet down the aisle then the next car then the next car. And you know maybe some time goes by and none of. The carts actually reached the destination. Never succeed never gets to the finish line damage to the exercise but you know. Instead of focusing on five cards you focus on one car. You spend all your time pushing that card down the aisle you get further down the aisle because you're not switching one car to the next you know wasting your energy on carts you're gonna get further along the i feel because your focus so what. I'm trying to explain here. Is you're going to more of a win if you focus on one thing now. This isn't mean you don't try different things or experiment or you can Do small projects or mvp's to figure out what you wanna do but once you are trying to make money you're putting product out in the market. Once you're past the mvp phase you really have to focus and double and triple down so you can get some momentum when you're starting as an entrepreneur. In my opinion it's incredibly important to get momentum to get a win to really feel a sense of success because that begets success. The helps you get success successful in one area. It's going to allow you to be successful in other areas so crossed the finish line. Some wins earn some income. Be profitable have a successful business. I with a product with a service with something that you really really excel in build the system around build the team around and then you can move onto another stream of income another business another product and do the same thing again. What happens to a lot of people's take this advice. When they're starting they try to build all these streams of income. None of them really move the needle. They make a few dollars here. Few dollars there and they ended up giving up on entrepreneurship together because in total they don't have a significant win because they're switching their attention back and forth from one thing to another they don't have enough resources to hire out and frankly they just get tired is a whole easier for you to gain success and to really have some traction in your business if you focus on one thing once you have a viable product that you know your customers want take the time to improve it to perfect it to have a good sales funnel to get the business to a point where you can start again building system in hiring people around you so they can run it for you so they can run and do the heavy lifting and you can just manage and you can just be the strategic planner of his business and then you can move on again to the next product the next service or something that actually helps her supplements that business if you look at any entrepreneur the has multiple streams of income Very very often. It will mean that they built one before the other for example. If you look. At noah kagan he first started app. Sumo absuing became successful. He took that success and then built another company called sumo dot com which is a software company then took that success and built king sumo and then from king sumo he built other products like san fox and fam but very seldomly. You will see a entrepreneur again doing all of this at once. Even ilan moscow's quote unquote the poster child for multiple streams of income. Who has tesla and spacex and solar city a lot of people forget that hughes one of the co founders of paypal and he was able to fund spacex and tesla with the money earned from people's acquisition. So he focused on alwin. He got a win. I and got some funding. So that's my advice yeshiva. Everybody who's listening. This is going to be a huge huge relief on your stress levels. Now that you can just focus on one thing and just see that thing through the finish line say finish line. I mean a profitable business at. You're happy with the sustainable that allows you to again higher outta team and then move on to the next stream of income.

How often should I increase my rates?

How often should I increase my rates?

"So doug asks on cuny wednesday. How often should i increase my rates. Last time doug increases rates it was all over eighteen months ago. So it's in my opinion time to do so. I actually think the maximum time. You should wait before you increase. Prices is eighteen months actually. I think you're just at the point where you really really really should be increasing prices. Especially if you're doing regular work this whole time the value you're giving your customers day in and day out now project after project is getting better and better every day and therefore you should be charging more for the increased value. I want to address A little bit of doug's of raising his prices he does own a ternary his existing customers. Ona discourage them from working with him again. I want to tell you from a customer's point of view. Who hires a lot of freelancers. That hires a lot of employees. If i work with somebody who delivers who. I come back and work with again and again. My biggest concern is not really them. Increasing the prices. My biggest concern is that they're not gonna be able to do. The work might have to find somebody else. That's really my worry paying a little bit more in order to get the same town. Does he get the consistency to get what i expect. Is a very very small price to pay. Many people. Don't realize that from a company's point of you from our point of view consistency is so important knowing what you're gonna get Having expectations and having them fulfilled this is incredibly valuable them so they don't wanna let that go and if you say hey My prices have gone up by raise. Gone up it's not out of this world. You know this is normal. Anybody who believes the service or create any kind of content. You know musician makes more money today than they did. Three years ago because they've gotten better as a musician or an athlete or any kind of professional. Like i mentioned a doctor lawyer. A service provider plumber and again from my perspective as somebody who's hiring somebody to do a service. I'm okay with paying more. If i'm getting good work done. I actually found that higher rates are not discouraging to actually things. I look out for actually want somebody who charges a bit more for example. Your website developers. Somebody comes to me and says hey you know. I charge eighty dollars an hour. You know that might seem expensive. But that person charges eighty dollars. An hour is experienced. The know what they're doing and they're probably going to be able to complete the project faster more efficiently And more accurately than somebody who's charging maybe half that forty dollars an hour depres is going to take a lot longer is going to have a lot more roadblocks and may not be able to do the project as well as somebody who is charging much more so sometimes you actually save money in the long run and serious buyers who aren't so price sensitive are the kind of customers you want to attract so in the long run increasing. Your prices are really going to help you. Increasing your rates so minimum increase their prices every eighteen months. You can even do it every year. But that's kind of my recommendation chain a year eighteen months now how to do this well. It's very simple the next time you engage with customer you can just mentioned it. Hey by the way last time this was my rate since then i've increased my rate. It's currently this over this project. It's going to cost x. Amount of money and stop talking or stop writing a lot of people that go on and on. Is that okay with you. I hope that's okay once you is that okay with you. Ask a question. Is that okay. That is opening up a negotiation. Because they can say well actually you know if you just say it as a fact. This is my right now. This is how much it cost now. And there's no question at the end of it people gonna be like okay. That's what i gotta do now. Many service providers have done a to type pricing strategy to. I think is really good Actually increase the prices for new customers at one rate and recurring customers or a returning customers than others. So for example they'll take their rate in the increase by twenty percent. That's the new price for new customers so people that don't know any better. You know know your first price. Best the price they know and four returning customers. It's fifteen percent and you can mention this to your returning customer. Because a hey buy. New prices are twenty percent higher. My new rate is such and such but I can give you a return customer discount so it will be so so and so it'll be only fifteen percent more the shows that you respect loyalty and appreciate their business and then hey you're giving them a little something special. How much should you increase. Will it depends on how often you increase your rates. Let's say for example you're increasing. Every year i would say no less than five percent and no more than twenty percent any more than twenty percent. Twenty five thirty It becomes a dramatic jump. This is why it's more Advisable to increase their prices every year rather than waiting every two or three years because then the jumps are going to be quite high but even fifteen or twenty percent increase may not seem too high but will make a big difference for you for all your clients so say for example. You're alary fifty dollars. A twenty percent increase is only going up to sixty dollars but across all your hours across all your customers. It makes a significant difference now. One of the things i recommend is when you're delivering the change of rate to are turning customer. You can offer them to lock in a longer term package for example to have you on retainer so say for example you say hey. My hourly rate is now a hundred dollars. is usually increased my rates every twelve to eighteen months. But if you'd like you can lock in this rate for the next two years if you want to. But you'll need to commit to a certain amount of hours on retainer month so you might say i need to have ten hours on retainer every month. That means a thousand dollars every month. That means a twenty four thousand dollars for thirty two years and this can just be a retainer Four any kind of work that they need to do Maintenance work update work and then anything outside the retaining hours you can charge them early at the current rate and people that like to work with you would like to lock in a great rate that they can have and have predictable pricing for the next couple years. This could be done in a very low pressure just by the way. Here's something that i offer and you'll be surprised. How many of your customers. We'll take you up on it. Because people like to save money. People liked to lock in a discount more on today's cuny wednesday but before that. Let me love to sponsor support for today.

Should I get interns to work for my startup?

Should I get interns to work for my startup?

"Interns are often college grads or even college students looking to get experience so they can put in their resumes and put it in there and be able to get a job eventually sometimes interns do so well at the company they are interning at and they actually got a job there so on the surface a lot of people think. Oh this is a great idea. Because i don't have to pay them or maybe have to pay them very little. And i get people that are hungry. I give people energetic that. Come here and helped my business grow. But many people forget many different aspects of bringing on interns to your company first of all the reason why is because they have no experience in and sometimes they don't have many skills so you're not getting the best talent to work on your company okay. So you're actually getting somebody who's learning on the job now. Some interns will come with skills. They learned Before they went to university or maybe it's their interests maybe they like web development and this is something that they do on the side and they can in turn as a web developer for your company but even somebody like that is not gonna be skill wise and experience wise as good as somebody who you would hire an pay them a salary because they will get what they deserve and they'll give you deserve that salary right so just keep that in mind. Okay so my personal opinion when it comes to hiring interns that the nature of an intern is. They're looking for a brief stint somewhere to learn. some skills gained some experiences in my experience and from the experience of the different Entrepreneurs i've coached and helped along the way a small fraction of actually stay in becoming police in the company. They're looking usually for six months to year of experience and in my experience it takes about three months to ramp anybody. Noon your business to Get them used to your culture to train them so they know exactly what to do and how to do and how to fulfil their job role and it takes even longer for interns because hey they're not coming with any experience or they're not coming With any job experience in your realm. So they're gonna take a little bit more time to ramp up so if they're around for six months experience You really only gonna get three solid months outta them before they move on and you invested a lot of time effort. Somebody's got train them. Somebody's got to show them how to do the job. The show them had a perform well and then they leave. One of the biggest costs and business is turnover employee turnover. You want to keep your as long as possible because it's costly to find new talent to hire new talent and train them. You want to keep people for at least two to three years to get the most value out of him. Anything over that is gravy and it'd be awesome. You can keep them for longer but anything under two years really. You're losing a lot of money and time and effort in training hiring and all that stuff. So that's even more true with an intern now. I know that you're not paying them paying them very little. But again the expectation that you have in terms of put from an intern is much lower from the new employee. That has you know. Keep your eyes and it's going to be held accountable and all that kind of stuff now. Cows in the tech space. You need to grow you need to sprint unique to really Get moving fast in your business and get your product out there so you can't be wasting time on turnover on entrance leaving on people coming and going in and does affect the culture when you have new. Employees renew teammates every so often you wanna have a core group of people that are in the team and of course people were leaving. Come and go. But not the ray of an intern now. There is an exception. If you're going to be doing something that's more of an investment in your business They you can keep after they leave. Let's say they are Documenting standing operating procedures or. Sap's how do you do everything in your business. The documenting your systems in your play books so that when you do make a higher that can just pick up the playbook and know exactly how to fulfil every task. Another example is content there writing content like blog posts. If they're good writers than those posts will stand the test of time. And we'll serve your business while after they leave but in my experience if they are a good writer if they are good writer and the running amazing blog posts they can get paid for it. They freelance and they will in turn says a bit of a difficult situation. Of course you find great talented people and train them and then leads me to my next point if you wanna take on interns and you found great talent. That is willing to intern for a company then stipulate that they have to be an intern for a period of time. I would say at least twelve months now. In my opinion you should compensate them in some way. Even if it's minimum wage but compensation matters. Okay giving them money for their time now that you invested a year. Also stipulate that you'll they'll have an evaluation at the end of the year and they'll be offered a position if they pass the evaluation this gives them some sort of upward. Mobility gives them something to shoot for. Okay i like working here. I like the work. I'm doing here. I'm learning a lot. I wonder how much i can learn if i was a full time employee.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 or Note 20 Ultra?

"Nick. Thank you for being on this week's episode. You've been on plenty of them this past twenty twenty. So thank you for being on the pilot episode of Cuny. A thanks for having me it's always a pleasure. Yeah. All right. So great question for you Someone as let me scroll all the way back. If I can get all the way back there because I g TV can be a little bit hard when it comes to this stuff, somebody asked about the galaxy full to own Brandon Brandon asked, are you going to get accustomed galaxy full to and? The here's where I landed on the fold to once I tested it, and did my reviews for for jv in particular My main question going into using a foldable device on the daily was. His this phone going to provide more for me than just a more fun and bigger smartphone experience. If the question if the answer to that question was no, then I did not feel right mending two grand on it that ultimately became the case I. Love The fold too. I think it's a great device. I enjoyed my time with ED call of duty mobile and Rochman X. Dive on that big screen is. Literally experience you can have anywhere else unless you are willing to play on a tablet by. Yeah. I just. It's a fun device and that's all it ended up being and that's why ultimately said no, it's not for me. So you got your hands on it. You've been doing cameras enough do do you have any thoughts? So. I'm kind of with you on you know seeing if affordable device is the right device for me, my my previous experience with foldable devices got the test out the fold last year just for a couple of days not a full review. But then I got the Z. Flip and I actually really liked that device. But with the fold to my review approach is not me just reviewing the advice it's more of is doing already a blog style review seeing if. A week with this device can convince me that foldable displays are the future and this is where we should be going with smartphone technology. So I'm on day three of that As you said, I've tested out the cameras so far I've been using the phone as my main device. There are some benefits to having that larger screen. I. Honestly think that you know having that cross device between a phone and tablet. Can Be useful for some people But then you mentioned things like gaming and I I saw a lot of people doing this playing call of duty duty mobile on the fold, and you have a much bigger experience but actually I had to put it down after fifteen twenty minutes because of a different couple factors. The the weight of this thing is incredible. It is heavier than a tablet like this thing this thing is just as heavy as what an eight. INCH or nine inch tablet is just because of the metal building the glass on the back it's extremely heavy. So it's not really comfortable for playing for a long period of time but then also the aspect ratio while it does lend itself for what seems to be a more immersive experience. It's actually a cropped in experience. So you don't get any of your peripheral vision that you would get on a sixteen by nine display. It's it's literally cut off so if you have. Especially for first person shooters, you're literally cut off from about twenty to thirty percent of the screen that you would get on a regular smartphone but. That's left to right though right because it's taught top and bottom. You get more on the same about them you get the scene. More on the top and bottom no, you get you get the same view. It's so it's like yours. It's like you're on a smartphone. If you're you're here and then they're just cutting off this and you get that wider or taller aspect ratio by it's it's the same. So I had to quit after I don't know fifteen minutes and the other reason I quit was because it's you're feeling the plastic on the screen and so scrolling your fingers with onscreen controls isn't that smooth as A. Little bit more friction there and especially when it's a larger display unless I hadn't calibrated my controls on spring controls yet to make them a little bit smaller so that there and more responsive. So the ONSCREEN. Controls for call of duty mobile were driving me crazy after after fifteen minutes and I was like, no, I'm going back to my won't plus a pro. Just because it's a much, much better experience for me at least but as far as like it felt bigger and it's because like because the screen is bigger, it does feel more immersive. You're in the game more but I don't think it gives you a competitive advantage with with that feeling because of the other detractors that it, you know it's it's heavier the screens not as smooth. So your your finger scrolling on the screen aren't as quick and responsive, and then for me at least I felt like I was L-. I lost my peripheral vision. In it so But, I I. I think for for call of duty the whole peripheral vision thing. Maybe that is great but I can tell you sir on a platform like Rochman X. Dive it definitely rendered more of the top and bottom because there was more of that. They're so on a regular phone if there was a platform underneath me that I would not see until I fell off the current one I could see it on the full to scum that was literally there. Yeah. So it was literally showed up there. In the same vein of the fold to question someone did ask, would you pick a no twenty all tre or the full to and I think that's an interesting question because these are two very. Niche devices, Nisha lines that Samsung have created for themselves. So it's has pen or fold as penfold. How for me? I. Would Go with the note twenty ultra For for a couple different reasons, one of them being the cameras, the cameras on the no twenty tra- better cameras. that being said, I have been enjoying taking selfies with the fold since you can use the main cameras on the back. So if you're in the SELFIES, the full would be the better option there you can use the altar wide or the standard especially in low light conditions you to see a huge improvement But as far as overall usability of the device I would say the note twenty trump from me personally would be a better fit for my my use cases.

They Call Us The Paper Tigers

"Hello, and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I bill you and I'm Jeff Yang and we are here. With the director and writer of I gotTA. Say just one of my favorite films to have come out this year not just because it hits square and kind of like the intersection of. Sweet spots for me. But also because it really revives John that is kind of synonymous with. They cost Bruce in some ways, and that film is the paper tigers and the filmmaker in question is bow tran. Bow. Thank you for joining us on the PODCAST. Welcome. Hello. Hello. Thanks for having. Me Guess. Big Fan. At. Likewise. No seriously about so this film is basically about a set of martial arts enthusiasts young young guys who have grown up learning under a master. who have kept on growing up as a were. Gotten Kinda midlife and found themselves in a situation where they have to kind of recover the skills that they've lost and like I said for me, it really is just at the intersection of a lot of stuff that I care about and or am. So. Thank you for making it. And Yeah, thank you for talking to us about. My pleasure. Thanks for watching. Really glad to hear you guys enjoy. I let me say like, let me express a little bit of. Sorrow and regret. and sadness on your behalf because. The world being what it is the circumstances being what it is. Many people are going to experience. This movie are not going to experience movie the way I really think they should. Experience it which is with an audience because this is such a fun crowd-pleasing movie We should say like I saw it advertised as a as a martial arts comedy which it is. But it's a bummer that we're not people aren't going to really get to see it in that ideal situation. Yeah I. Mean it's kind of a it's kind of a surreal thing to go through this year with all festivals. Now pivoting to virtual and we had a world premiere couple of weeks ago at Fantasia, which is usually out of Montreal and We did have a zoom QNA afterwards. And is actually fun because it was the first time. The actors saw the movie for the first time and all that and then Cuny was over and I got kicked out of the Zoom Room. There I was sitting in the dark? The World Premiere. Back. But. You know you know we we may do I, mean. That's kind of the way things are, and we just have to Kinda forge on. But Yeah we all had always hoped in envisioned to be able to play this in front of crowd because I think that's kind of like the best experience at least for me growing up as well. Just watching movies that I love. And then be able to kind of bring that. Old old-timey feeling back again. But hopefully, maybe oh Soon soon, enough will be a on our recovery in fields. Kind of have a place when we can share it altogether. I. I kinda figured out what the the genre of this sort of ends up being in white works for me. So well, it's basically old school meets old just. But. I mean these AVIV, the the issue of where we are. Now how this all landing I I will say that. There's something really special about seeing the movie mean it's taken a while to get here and I know this of course, I was fortunate enough smart enough to be early on the bandwagon on this thing asked for it in the kick starter as was Hudson Yang. And Shout shout out. Yeah and it feels a little bit like it's bringing with it. A breath of what it was like before all this happened I. Mean you know we're for me the the things that make the movie just. Feel, special to me is. It's it's the kind of film that you can't really make in quarantine at all. It's film that it's not like a giant. You Know Effects Laden blockbuster, but it has the the effects that you can only do with people are trained and skillful right which is. People finding hand hand. Real. Martial, artists in. Most cases. Who are are going head to head with choreography that you can't hide right there. This does really feel to me and we seen other attempts before. Like A legit revival of that The film right and? I mean I wanted to kind of dig a little into your inspirations and influences in deciding to. Revive this Jonah to begin with. And here a little more about the way this journey started. Yeah I mean I could have imagined. No. You guys have been tracking project for a long time. We've been you know I, I was with Mike Alaska's my producer and we pitched this at the C. Three Project Market V. C. You know twenty eleven in front of like Daniel Day Kim and Desirous Yamashita in. A Teddy Zee. Like nine years ago when I had a one page treatment and it was just like. A hair we are. So I wish I could say we planned it, but we really just got in by Cheney chin-chin in terms of just shooting this film at the at the end of summer last year two, thousand nineteen, and then we were imposed all the way up until you know when the lockdown started happening and all that stuff. So yeah I mean literally is that Snapshot Wife Before. the pandemic and a lot of ways. So it's just it's just kind of worked out that way and if we waited any any additional months or waited, you know in any way to to shoot the film I, don't think we re we would be here having this conversation. Yeah. So it's Kinda trippy looking back on just the timing of it all.

How long should my YouTube videos be?

"I've studied a lot when it comes to video marketing. Especially when it comes to search engine optimization and optimizing your exposure on Youtube, the lot experts out there. But my personal favorite expert on this topic is Brian Deane from back Linko dot com you can check out his blog back link dot com. There's a ton of resources when it comes to maximizing your exposure on Youtube he's only an expert when it comes to Seo marketing on Google but also on Youtube so I want to share with you some things I learned from him as well as others that have confirmed his strategies and what I like about Brian's approach to youtube marketing is he actually tests Out His theories and see if they work in the real world and his own youtube channel, which is huge for this niche of Seo. It's a very dry kind of topic. It's not a you know anything that's entertaining or funny or makeup tutorials or car reviews which kind of caters to a big market very niche and yet he's got a huge following three hundred and seventy three thousand subscribers on his youtube channel. Pretty impressive. Let's address the direct question of how long should videos on Youtube. In order to give you the right advice. Let me back up a little bit and talk about. What does Youtube. Well Youtube really wants people to stay on the platform as long as possible. Their big metric is view time total view time how long people watch videos on their channel? Don't confuse this with retention time. Let me tell you the difference if a former video on average people watch of to the three minute mark. My retention time is seventy five percent pretty impressive right? Let's say I have a ten minute video and people watch only half five minute mark. You would think that the first video would be more optimized would be more preferred by you would get more exposure because the retention time or percentage is higher at seventy, five percent versus fifty but the total watch time I video is three minutes versus the second video, which is five minutes and really. Cares about is that you actually keeping people on the platform for longer they're watching videos for longer more minutes is most important to them, and this is why the ten minute mark is seen as the holy grail in Youtube because ten minutes allows you to get lots of viewing time even if they just watch half the video and it's also not too long where it's like a two hour video and no one even attempts to click on it because they have to hours. So Brian Deane your video should be at least ten minutes long. You should try to aim for that. You know nine minutes eight and a half. Okay. But ten is really what you should aim for to maximize your viewing time and also obviously have a concise and valuable video. So your channel will get more juice will get more preference from Youtube. Viewers to watch more time of your videos, they will suggest your videos as recommended videos at the end of videos. Or they'll suggests it in the right hand column. And if you get enough mental, you might even be trending on their homepage. Now I don't want you to take my word for it. Take a look at some of the best youtubers out. They're the ones that are trending the ones that maybe you follow somebody maybe that you look up to even if they're not as active as they used to before like Casey Nice to take a look at the length of their videos, you're going to see their around the ten minute, Mark Ten twelve, fifteen minutes very few of these big time youtubers are doing you know three minute form videos, even people that review. Gadgets software cars they make sure that it's you know eight, nine, ten minutes at least now I want to give a couple more piece of advice that I learned from Brian. But my real genuine advice is to subscribe to back link. Oh, you know he's not paying me for this. I'm genuinely saying he's a great source of knowledge because I've learned so much from him if he ever offers the I know he has a course on youtube if you ever offers it. Opens it up for enrollment. Then he closes it really quick by that course it's a very, very good if you're serious about growing your youtube channel because you're GONNA learn a ton to maximize a results is really going to get you faster results in shorter time. But here are a few things I learned along the way from him number one. Understand the key words you're trying to target when you are shooting a video. So when you have video four, your youtube channel, you have a video idea, a title what are the key words are trying to target what kind of things that you're going to be searching for that they're going to you know stumble upon her find your video with understand your Seki words and they could be eight to ten keywords you're looking for, and you need to make sure you use these words throughout the video now, only in the description as. Much as possible in the title, even in your, you know close captioning or subtitles, but also say these keywords in the video actually speak them into the camera why? Because you actually can pick up what is being said, and it's actually picking up your audio and using it in their search engine algorithm to find people those videos that match the keywords typing in. So obviously, you just want to say these words randomly you want to put them in context in the video, but be mindful that you need to mention these key a few times. Brine recommends at least three times. So they're picked up by the algorithm maximizing your opportunity to rank for those keywords. Thing teaches of course you need to make sure your video engaging if your values are not good, they're not gonNA do well period you want to make sure that they're engaging you have really crisp cuts you have different angles even if you just change the framing even if you just have one video camera a Webcam or your phone in the post production in the edit you know zoom into your face then back up to a wide shot and switch these kind of shots every time you're changing The point or moving onto different part of video us bureau US things on your screen or images or video from stock images.

What's the best mic for podcasting?

What's the best mic for podcasting?

"To, kick off his answer to the Cuny Wednesday question. What is the best Mike for podcasting? WanNa start by saying that I've done a ton of research on this topic. I've done a incredible amount of experimentation We've recorded over sixteen hundred episodes of this podcast and every single time record an episode. We try so many different things to improve the quality of the audio of the sound of the edit to continually be professional and compete with professional podcasts. So I'm not going to geek out on giving you all these different types of microphones you can buy on. Ana, give you the summation of what I've learned over the years. Will you really need to know what I would tell somebody if they're getting started with a podcast? Actually going to start somewhere completely different somewhere. The whole thing to do with microphones because you can have a state of the art microphone that costs five hundred dollars plus but it will do you. No. Good. If you're space is awful if we're you record is not a good space as conducive to recording, it doesn't matter what you're going to use to record for example, very court my podcast with a great quality Mike but There's construction going on there's noises dog barking I'm in a room with high. Ceilings and no installation that record is going to sound straight trash. Okay. It doesn't matter that you have a great Mike because your environment is horrible. Good news is that you can easily manager environment and make sure that wherever you record, it's actually conducive to agree recording. So one of the things I highly recommend is your cord either in a walk in closet or closet, the has shelving the bare minimum have your mic on a shelf in a closet and you record into that shelving into the closet. Because your voice is being projected towards the mayank into the closet, and because the shelving is kind of. Confined like into a box, your voice is not going to be bouncing around a lot across the room. It's going to be confined to the closet. This is sort of creating a makeshift soundproofing or sound booth. This is going sound a whole lot better than you just having your Mike at your desk in a big room. The next level up is to actually record in a sound proofing box. This is an actual Foam box has soundproofing that you place your mic inside. And you place that box into a closet or a shelf, and this really makes everything sound like studio quality. It's incredible and your listeners just using a portable soundproof box that you can buy Amazon it's about two hundred dollars, but it's actually worth more than the actual Mike it's actually going to improve the quality of your audio more than the actual. Mike. Itself I actually. Just. Looked it up on Amazon and the one I was thinking of a travel on, which is two hundred dollars. There's actually an alternative one that is in portable, but it's only thirty six bucks. It's called the choice studio sound recording, vocal booth thirty, six dollars. It's basically a box me out of foam where you can place your mic inside and talk right into it. That is going to make a tremendous difference. Now, let's talk about Mike's There are whole much of mine because I can go through but I'm GonNa give you two mikes. One that I would say is absolutely amazing for the price and you can actually use for all your podcasting with that soundproofing for as long as you like, and the second one is going to be if you insist on buying something expensive, this is the one I recommend. So the first one is the Audio Technica eighteen or twenty, one, hundred, it retails for about one hundred bucks on Amazon it's a be an xl are Mike, which is great. That means if it's used. To your computer and record using your recording software right on your computer or they're using quicktime or Daswani, or garage band or whatever using record your audio. Now I mentioned ex- LAR-. It also does acceler excellent actual cable that needs to go into a sound or quarter like a Zumra quarter if you don't own talking about then this is kind of technical and you may want to Google that but if you're interested in recording on your Laptop than you have to get a Mike, this be compatible which is this one, the audio tape, a tr twenty, one, hundred. This is why I think is one of the best Mike's you can buy period for podcasting for a webinars for calls. It's fantastic. It's really really an amazing quality Mike. It's on intellectual mish means that when you speak into the mic picks up your voice and it does its best of not picking up. Anything that's around in the room. So even if somebody's shouting across the hallway, if you're in a different room, it won't pick up

The NCAA decides Nov. 25 will be the start date for college basketball's season

"Twenty fifth is the intended start date for college basketball season and the oversight committees. As I previously reported had suggested that this go to November twenty first and that was the formal recommendation sent to the D. One council last Friday five days ago however. I was told and I want to be clear in how I share this information I talked to Dan Gavitt on the record earlier today and I have a story Cuny that you can read with a lot of stuff about why we're here and what's next and etcetera etcetera. But what about to share with you? I never discussed with Dan Gavin any kind of regard this is just my info gathering and what I think happened here today. So as I understand it, Dan Gavitt was one of a few important people that was really adamant about having the season start on November twenty fifth, and then the oversight committee acids power to do look at everything considered all the MTV's the multi team events and said, you know what with so many of. These starting on November twenty third in a couple actually starting scheduled starting November twenty. First we think we best to bump up the season by about four days. Get it done on November twenty first and just use that runway toward the rest of the rest Thanksgiving week including Maui invitational etc. wouldn't you know GP The D. One council met today in the D. One council for those familiar one representative from all thirty two leagues that have Division One men's and women's basketball. And I don't know why it got to this point specifically but we are at November twenty fifth I mean I know one reason Gavin told me on the record November twenty fifth they estimate seventy, six percent of campuses. We'll have all of their entire student bodies off campus on November twenty five as opposed to twenty and twenty one is forty three percent and making these decisions for health and safety reasons is the first and foremost reason. For doing this also significant to meet November twenty one st never made sense at all because that's a Saturday we will have college football and we will be leading to an NFL Sunday you have Wednesday. Now November twenty five, we can start then you have day to yourself, there will be no NFL, there will be no college football there will be no MBA there will be no nhl there will be no pro baseball, the only major American. Sport, that will be played on Wednesday. November twenty fifth season will be college basketball and that in of itself I think is a positive up shoot. So

If you are living a lifestyle that allows you to produce it naturally so I think if you're a night shift worker, or you're somebody who is able to. You know if you're not, it's not the first step you should take if you're having trouble sleeping so I if you if you're not checking the boxes. With you're trying to improve your sleep quality then you shouldn't be turning Melatonin, but if you are work your work, circumstances are living circumstances. Have you in a position where you aren't going to be able to produce a lot of Melatonin? Naturally then I think you prior getting good sleep is going to be important, and if Melatonin can help that I think it can be a good song. Yeah, so the question is what is melting do and how is it? Producing one is produced by the body naturally. Melatonin essentially just tell you about it activates cascade of different Newark. Chemicals screwed that basically tell you buy. It's time to go to sleep. At screened by Pinal Gland I believe. And it is. Associate with a lot of things, light is major one. So what happens is most people don't. Fall Asleep with the sunset right and so the sun normally go down in all human history, and for every other analysts happens. By starts up regulating melatonin. melatonin sort of master switched. Those tells the rest of your body's going down and shutting down for arrest. When this doesn't happen. Can Be hard to go to sleep, and only that cannot stop you from getting into different stages of sleep as fast as you normally would, so you may be unconscious, but that doesn't mean you're getting the restorative sleep that you normally would so. Why is this problem? While people are after the sun goes down, they're exposed to blue light on their screens fluorescent lights in their house. The suppresses Melatonin production. So if that's the case, you have no other option. Maybe it's a good idea to take it I would take it regularly, but it at the same exact time. You shouldn't be producing it all over the place, so it shouldn't be off the map like. If you're taking Melatonin and you taking it one eight PM. One at ten PM. One and seven PM. In place you basically telling your brand that you're traveling in time zones back and forth and back and forth so I would focus far more on this is a last resort, and for special circumstances moving which we can get into, but the number one thing that I do when I go somewhere as If I have blue light, blocking glasses I blue blocks. and. There's a bunch out there. That's the ones I prefer. If I can't control the lights on my house. I've liked that dim when the sun sets and turn red and orange, after the sun has set, so those are wavelengths that do not. Suppress, Melatonin and this why the lends them blue light blocking glasses, the sandy fill blue light. You think about it like if you're outside at a campfire. The Ladies Very. Orangish, Yellowish Reddish Hue, there's very little to no blue light in there, so that's all from the sun so. Removing that from your day to day, life in is consistently as possible so that way you're not getting these weird signals of your body that you're switching time zones against another completely natural thing for humans to go through. That would be a huge thing, but I think there's a Lotta other things why people aren't getting good sleep, and so assuming that it's because of your lack of Melatonin production is i. think a little silly I think that you could look at. Obviously light is a huge one temperature of your room and then. The ability for light the in your house from. Blue. Blue. I'm trying to your. Shades. blockers no time. Look. light-blocking shades trying to say here. Oh blackout curtains blackout. So those are a good thing, and then we have lights actually if you're in a city where there's a lot of additional light, yeah, we have then lights that turn on the sunlight. One Sunrise should be happening. So this is another. Thing that happens. Has People Get Blackout Curtains? And then they don't wake up to the sun, which is again? In the wrong direction, so we actually have lights that turn on. As the sun rises locally, so you can just do all this stuff is super easy, Philips. Hue Lights, but we have. Great and Eating Super Close about times and I WANNA. Thank people you way too close to bed. I put at least three hours before you try to shut down and mental stimulation is also too much, so people are worried about this at that looking at the news. They're watching TV. They're just in. There had even hanging out with friends like I've done last couple of nights. You know people talk. Nine nine thirty s usually go to bed then I get home and it looks super stimulated. I can't sold out for a couple of hours. There's a lot of reasons why people wouldn't be able to sleep or feeling Russ restless. Having lack of militant brushes by news worry about? Your thoughts here. Will agree with that I. Think the the two things I would add to. That I agree that like I think it's a last ditch. Thing that you need to try. There's a of other things you can get in check with your environment and with your health habits before you need to turn to that supplementation. Do things I would add for helping is. Sleeping with your phone either out of room, or at least face down or not sleeping with the television on. There's some really interesting research out there that even when your eyelids are closed in your sleeping, flashing lights can cause face shifts in your circadian rhythms that can suppress Melatonin production or ramp up cortisol in the middle of the night. Things like that so. That's can be as simple as having your phone facing up and it lighting up while you're sleeping. That can completely threw off your sleep. So I thought that was really interesting thing when I was reading that studies. That would be a big thing. To consider and then. There's there is some interesting research on Melatonin for neuro degenerative diseases where you know, it seems like as we age, our natural production of Melatonin starts to decrease in. They've done studies where supplementing with it in elderly populations really increases cognitive function. That actually just came out this year I. Think showing that so like you said I think it's either. It's either a last ditch effort, supplement or something used for very specific circumstances.

We can't rule out the possibility that these vaccines will be very high prices. Developers are being asked to Develop this very quickly so they may demand a very high return on it. Jansen and AstraZeneca, who've together received $1.7 billion in government support, both said their potential corona virus vaccines would be offered in a not for profit basis. During the pandemic period. Government awarded another vaccine maker Novavax $1.6 billion in exchange for ownership of the 1st 100 million doses of any corona virus vaccine.

How do I shut off my brain so I can recharge?

"So Marivan emails me this great question for taste Cuny Wednesday. He says lately I have been working a lot. Most of which requires a lot of thinking I'm a web developer I love my job and what I do so much that I can't stop thinking about it when I'm eating when I'm working when I'm playing games, even when I'm hanging out with my friends, and family and I just don't want to do that I want my brain. To shut off, so I can recover Sarkin recuperate. Love the show. Love the podcast so much marathon. Thank you so much for that. Great Question Marathon and you are spot on. Many entrepreneurs. Many professionals deal with this issue and I'm GONNA. Give you my strategies. comes to dealing with this number one. It's good that you recognize you have the self awareness to understand that you're doing something that is maybe not the best for you where your mind is racing constantly. Some people think hey, that's great. You should be thinking about your should be carrying about all these things. You should be thinking about what you're doing. Y Shut it off while there's a big reason. There's actually a real biological reason why you should do it. Scientifically proven that your brain works at its best at its subconscious meaning. have. You ever noticed that you might have a problem in life or in business and you slept on it? You get the chance to sleep to rest, or you stepped away from it for a little bit. You went for a walk and it gets solved why you come up with great ideas well, how does it happen? It's because your subconscious brain allows itself to work on it. You have to allow your brain to shut off a little bit you need to. Stop thinking about it in. Your conscious mind. This is why it's actually good for your business to stop thinking about Your Business or whatever you do. Your subconscious mind is going to allow yourself. To solve problems to think of better ideas. There's only so much your conscious mind can do. So there are a few things I want to mention. These are the things that have worked for me number one. It's very hard when you're awake when you're actually in the daytime when you're spending your days when it's the weekend. To kind of just shut off your brain. You're not sleeping, right? You're not unconscious. Right so you want to do something else. What should you do to stop thinking about what you are constantly thinking about? This is where immersion comes in a big believer that in order for you to stop thinking about something or to take a break from something. You have to immerse yourself in something else. That's totally immersive. That takes your full attention that requires you to focus completely on it, and this could be several things for some people. It's like snowboarding or skiing because if you're down, the mountain on skis are on a snowboard unit focused totally on what you're doing. You're avoiding trees avoiding people. You're controlling your balance. All that kind of you're just totally immersed in that. You can't think about anything else. And the feeling that people have had a full day of skiing or snowboarding is a sense of zen sense of relaxation. How could that be they physical activity for six seven hours well, it's because their brain got a break. You gotta break from what normally thinks about. It pushed all your common thoughts to your subconscious, and your conscious mon was consumed with something totally different. This is just one example I know a lot of people. They have the same experience when they're in a very intense card game in a poker game. Even in an game we're requires their total focus and concentration. Another example is sport like if you play in a league, the safest companies they soccer basketball like I played basketball for recreation, and you can't think about anything else when you're in a basketball game you're there's so much going on. You need to focus on what you're doing and you're dribbling shooting. You're passing your thing of strategy. You think of the score. It really allows you to wipe your mind for a couple hours, and it's actually you come back feeling a sense of relief. For some people, it's a gripping novel that puts them in that place. Unique to find your think, marijuana and everybody listening you have to think what can I do? That can immerse myself. Rum totally focused on that task. These

"So, let me get into the details of Matthew's question in today's cuny Wednesday I just found your podcast and I'm currently working on my business plan. However I'm having a hard time writing my market report the business I'm trying to build as a large scale agriculture business. This would be at a national scale, but when ever looking for information online I'm having a hard time, which is understandable because I'm not selling directly to. To the consumer, actually selling to people that selfish restaurants grocers wholesalers can I assume that I should just focus on the overall growth of industry of the seafood market as well as import export. This is like Black Magic to me. I'm not really sure where to start looking forward to hearing from you matthew. Matthew we got your back. First of all. You are right. You're not in an industry where you're selling direct to. To customer or direct to consumer, you're actually selling to suppliers like you mentioned. Restaurants grocery store supermarket chains, so in formation is not so simple or not so easy to find online. What you need to do though is you need to learn a little bit more about the industry itself. Then you're right learning a little bit more about the seafood industry in general in your country. We'll help and it will give you. You an understanding of some margins, the cost of things Prophet. If the market's going up, it's going down. What are some of determining factors? This is going to give you some generalities, and it's going to be helpful, but in order to get the whole picture. You really need an insider. You need somebody that is in the industry already, and you need to speak to them and get some information it doesn't have to be. Somebody that you work with or consult with for a long period of time. This literally could be a couple of meetings over a cup of coffee, and you might say to yourself well. I can't really speak to anybody because they're going to be my competitor sp to another seafood supplier because they're not going to help me well, that's okay. You don't need to speak to another seafood supplier unique to speak to a sister company somebody that's going to be dealing with the same people that you will deal with the same companies, the same consumer like restaurants or grocery stores, so you can find somebody that supplies a meat for example, chicken or truffles. It doesn't really matter as. As long as the same people, you're going to be dealing with the same they deal with. then. Your best bet is to speak to somebody that is in your local community. There ought to be nationwide. Okay, they're not to be as large skills you are, but they could be like a local butcher, the supplies the stakes to the local pub or the local restaurant. They love their stakes, because they're super organic, and all that kind of stuff you can go small scale to beginning to understand the nature of the industry. Okay to understand what you're getting into, understand the cost of doing business with these types of businesses, and you probably already know somebody in this industry. Industry, or maybe it is your local butcher or your local farmer, and you would be surprised. How many of them are willing to help you out? They know how it feels to be you and you're not a competitor. It just takes a little bit courage for you to just rock up to your local former to your local butcher, to whoever supplies the meats or the chicken or the vegetables, or whatever to the seem places. You're going to be selling to restaurants grocery stores things like that then approach as hey. Can I speak to the owner? Can I speak to the manager here and they might be around if not find out when they are around and just have. Have a quick conversation. The Hey, my name is so and so I'm going to be getting into the fish industry i. know that this is different from what you do but I love to you know. Pick your brain because you're a few steps ahead. Emmy in the meat, industry or the chicken industry I'd love to grab a cup of coffee by lunch. Buy You dinner I know this seems a little before i. You know how hard this industry is. You know hard to get information. Have a whole bunch of questions I'd love for you to help me out more chances than not. They're going to say yes, and if they say no just move onto the next person. Will say yes, and this is where you ask them the questions you need to know about that market about the profit margins. About how longer these deals how long are these These supply contracts are.

Do I need to have a dedicated server for my website?

Do I need to have a dedicated server for my website?

"I begin I want to emphasize the fact that your website is one of the biggest assets in your business. It's where business is done is where people find out about you. It's where they learn if they WANNA do business with you. It's where they buy things from you where they consume your content in the online world. It's like your shop so investing in your website is probably one of the best investments. You can make now. I'M GONNA explain if you actually need a dedicated server for your business. I'm going to talk about the different stages of business. Maybe you're not there yet. Maybe you will upgrade to a dedicated server later on. But how do you know win? I'M GONNA get into all of them. I A dedicated server is always going to be better than a shared server. There are so many advantages to it. Security advantages bandwith advantages support advantages. I'll go through them all but just to lay it out. Let's start with the one disadvantage of dedicated server. It's more expensive. That's really it. That's the only downside of having a dedicated server just to give you an idea. We have a dedicated server. We use a WBZ engine. It's the best hosting forward press sites. Their support is out of this world. It's the best in my opinion. I've tried a lot so much. So we partnered with them to give all our listeners and amazing discount You could check that out over at one zero zero. Nba Dot net slash resources. There's a link right there and a code. You can use to get twenty percents off your first payment whether it's an annual payment or a monthly payment. I would recommend it if we didn't use it now are dedicated server which allows up to a million visitors without a hiccup. Every single month costs six hundred dollars a month. Yep It's expensive but because I have my own server. I can all my websites on their can host my personal website. I can host My Ninja website can host my one hundred dollars a website. And it's not GonNa even bat an eye at that traffic because it's so powerful. Now we used to be on a shared server on wbz engine but it actually became more cost effective for us to move to a dedicated server. Because WE'RE PAYING. Nine hundred dollars in overages every single month because of the traffic we were getting On the hundred dollars because of this podcast good problem to have but we totally Didn't notice we're about two months in our overages or crazy. As a show is growing. Our traffic was growing so he realized We need to do something so we actually a message the BP engines support they said Hey. Your traffic is quite high. And you're sharing the server with other people so we have to kind of Slow Down Your bandwith to be fair with other people explain what that means in a moment might be more cost effective for you to have a dedicated server which costs six hundred dollars but that was cheaper saving three hundred dollars a month by going with a dedicated server. So let's get into the advantages and the number. One advantage is bandwidth. Now when you're sharing a server with other people which is a shared hosts this is very common in most website hosting you're sharing the ban with the speed in the space on that server with other companies so they're going to basically Monitor your speed and slow down your site if they have to to accommodate You know your bandwidth meaning that they're gonNA strict your bandwidth making your site. A little slow and sluggish share a bowl popcorn with your friends and one of your friends is grabbing handfuls of popcorn. Everybody's taking it one by one so the shared server host is GonNa say I'm sorry that's not fair for everybody else we're gonNA limit your number of popcorns so the there's enough for everybody else. The other show the shared service at some times. This is rare but it happens Somebody on the shared server has an issue has a bug has a virus. Something goes on and it takes down the whole server so your service totally down. You didn't do anything and neither to everybody else on that shirt server but one of the people had problems there for y'all suffer this is not common but it can't happen as happened to me in the past ten years but it's just something to keep in mind. The third advantage really is when you go to a dedicated server Whoever's supplying your servers like wd engine they're going to give you a higher level support usually comes to the higher tier of support. You're going to get technical experts. That can do the work for you like sometimes I'm having an issue. My website have a conflict with a plugin on wordpress. I'll go into him have been a bit of an issue. They go into my account and they actually just fix it for me. I don't have to do anything they don't say. Oh it seems like there's a problem with this plug in. Maybe you want to try this. No they don't do that. They just go ahead and they get it done for me. They say okay. It's all good now because I'm paying premium rate and the value as a customer. So the serve you at a higher level of priority and a higher level of service now when things go down when things are not well when your site is down. It's like Code Red Right and you need fast response of support so this is really really helpful when there's a crisis on your website and need to make sure it's all the soon as possible even if it's just a few minutes there on your issue asap and usually you're back in running with no issues whatsoever in a few minutes. It's not that simple to solve some problems If you're not a dedicated server sometimes we need to do rebut the server Respond the instance. And because you're the only one on the server that's totally fine. You're down anyway so rebooting. It is just a quick solution. You can't reboot a shared services. Everybody's GonNa go down We're talking about hundreds of websites so they got to find other ways to solve it. Migrate you to a different server. It's a little bit of a mess. Now Russ six hundred dollars a lot of money and if you are not getting a lot of traffic you may not see the Roi My advice. If you're just getting started shared servers fine. It'll get you started. We'll get the ball rolling. You don't need to spend a lot of money at the start but once I start getting a hundred a hundred and fifty thousand visitors a month and you can learn this from Google analytics. You can go to similar web It's a great website for you to check out how many visits our website gets. And it's just a ballpark number. But the point here is that once he goes over a hundred grand. I'd say a hundred grand hundred thousand visitors a month. It's time for you to consider choosing a dedicated server have traffic. Your Business should be rolling. You know unless you have a conversion problem on your website. You're converting all these visitors and it's a good foundation to have a dedicated server. Once you get to that point as you start growing beyond you know all these big websites all these big blogs the millions of visitors a month they all have dedicated servers because they know the value of up time of speed bandwidth and they don't want to risk it and disappoint people that come to the website. I got more in today's topic. Today's cuny Wednesday before that. Let me go love to today's sponsor support for today's show comes from Ernest. Do you have student loans?

There are many external factors meaning not in your realm of influence that will influence will determine your success and the number one. External factor is the market. You're in I you serving a market. That actually spends money that is willing to pay for your solution that has longevity that is perennial meaning is something people will always need for example. If you're in the health and wellness industry they'll always be a need to get healthier to feel better. That's not changing anytime soon. That's part of human nature. That's a market. That is going to help you succeed. Because that's not going to change because of technology or is that going to change because of trends anytime soon. So there is a factor of what Mark Urine. There's also the factor of timing. When are you getting into the market? One is your product actually being presented to customers. Sometimes people are too early with the concept of their business and people. Just don't get it. A lot of people don't know that it took uber a very long time to get some traction and they were very very exclusive to some cities and there were very expensive. They're only had the you know. Uber Black because people still had adopted the idea of just getting into a car of a private citizen. That is not a taxi driver. Right does have one of those taxi driver licenses. They weren't way early but they did have to suffer a little bit at the start. Sometimes you're too late. There's too much competition or the market is already saturated so timing is a factor so as you could see there could be many external factors that are a little bit beyond the scope of your influence. Now that doesn't mean you can't test the waters. You really have to validate your business ideas before you start them. This allows you to know if the markets in your favor if you're too early or too late or just right or if people actually want what you're selling idea. Valdez is something that we always talk about one hundred. Rbi and it could be done very quickly very easily. And it's going to take you so much time or you're not gonNA spend a whole lot of money. I remember when I had a valid some ideas for my first businesses. I literally go to local businesses business owners who would be my typical clients. I'm talking about like a Yoga Studio. I would go into a leather bag shop This is New York City. At the time I'd go to a pizzeria and I would actually ask them if they'd be interested in a service that was providing which is web services creating their websites out finding their willingness to pay how much they're willing to pay and their immediate reactions to what. I'm trying to offer them. Are they repulsed by it or are they excited about you?

Clients are happy to give you money. Actually give you money in exchange for the service you don't have to launch and Go gangbusters from day one. A lot of people think when they start a business I think of like big box corporations like Walmart or big corporations like Apple. No you could start very small very local with a few clients few customers as long as you validate you have a profitable model that you're actually making more than you're spending and quick tip. Never assume things will get better in the future a lot of people they say well not profitable now but at scale. I will know be profitable from day one. Make sure that the business you're building today tomorrow the next as always profitable otherwise. It's a quick way to go out of business now. Once you've done that you're going to have a good idea of the profitability of this business How willing are people going to say? Yes to this product or service. And how likely are you gonNA have enough customers to hit your successful so if your success goals two thousand dollars a month and your product is thousand dollars a month then you just need to clients a month and you can get to clients. You've already become successful now. If your product is ten dollars one time fee is trying to two thousand dollars a month. You're going to need two hundred customers every single month. Two hundred new customers every single month so you could see how your business model your pricing all that will factor in to if you're gonna hit that success milestone if you're going to be successful so you might have to change your business model or what you charge or how you charge and in the early days your business you're validating when you're making some Early transactions with some early clients and customers.

"Is bound Reagan. We met vow when she told a story in the CUNY young women's voices festival, which brings students together from all over the City University school system in New York since telling the story vow has got onto host shows with the moth, she's charming and she's quick on her feet as you'll hear so live at the moth. Valerie, don. Okay. So a few months ago, I learned that someone I knew very very long ago. I was maybe six or seven and he was five he died all of a sudden. And to be honest. I haven't thought about him or spoken to him since I was six or seven. So it's very strange for me. It was like a puzzle piece plucked out of my pass and just thrown away. And it's it was very just like I was on uneven ground. Suddenly, you know, I could die next. My house could burn down. My parents could die. I could get into a car crash. I could fall down the stairs and break both my legs. Anything can happen. I was like oh my God. This is this is too much. I gotta I gotta watch cartoon. So I go, and I I turn on this CGI movie, and it's called leap, and it's a very ugly movie. It's like sort of CGI three D, And they have these really realistic human faces on these tiny cartoon bodies. And it's a little disturbing to see. But aside from that, it's a movie about ballet, and when the young girl, who's the, you know, the protagonist of the story. She's dancing. It becomes very beautiful. It really spoke to me because for almost my whole life ballet has been something in the back of my head that I think oh, man. I wish I did valley when I was three or I wish I started ballet, and I could be a ballerina now. But as I was watching the movie, I was thinking why not do it? Now. You know, I have the money I have a job, and I could just go to a ballet class and thinking, you know, okay. I'm twenty five and I wanna be a ballerina. So k y not I'll do that. So I go to groupon dot com. And I start. I start researching like, okay, I found a class. And I I do a little research. They have absolute beginner and basic beginner an advanced beginner and then intermediate, and then you can become I guess mid level ballerina after all those classes. So I think okay, I'm going to do a basic ballet basic beginner, which is a step up from absolute beginner because you know, I'm a I'm a spray a little pony. I think I could keep up. You know, it's not it's not going to be, you know, it'll be fine Sony's I Russians a class, and I go in and it's this little studio with mirrors on one wall in bars down the center and Russian and immediately. I notice everyone is, you know, very beautiful and there in the middle of the exercises, and I don't know much, but I do know the difference between a basic ballerina and a professional ballerina and everyone in that class was like a professional prima ballerina. And I don't understand this like these were the people who had done ballet in their youth when they're like sixteen and they had to stop. And now they're back ten years later to, you know, put on their their points us again and dance. And I'm like, oh my God. What am I done? But anyways, I just jump in. And I start doing the dances doing the exercises. And it's so hard, and it's so fast. And I don't know what I'm doing. The teacher is saying all these words passe elevates on do plea. And I'm like, oh my God. And everyone everyone around me is beautiful. They're like falling snow, and so graceful and. And I'm like sticks and rocks. And I can't move. Okay. And the teacher. She's looking at you like, okay, calm down. She doesn't. So she knows. She's like, okay slow down. But I don't hear her because of all the blood rush into my head. Because I had attempted to touch my toes, which I haven't done. So I'm like. So. So by the end of class. I'm like, oh my God. I'm up to call an Uber. Not gonna make it home. They're gonna find my body on west third street buried under like three inches of snow. I'm done. It's over my legs are gone. But I make it home. And I go to the class, you know, the day after because the groupon was for five classes. And and you know. I can't be.

"And I am teaching you how to build an asset protection plan for yourself the elements. What it is what the problem is that we're trying to solve and how how it works, and it's free, and we have fun. And you know, it's about ninety minutes total about thirty minutes of that is CUNY. And you know, my thing is what is your question. And let's get it all out on the table. And we can I will answer all the questions. Now when you register for the workshop, you will be sent a Email completely optional about it would be helpful. If you the student clicked on little Lincoln takes you to a form and the form is he says like what is your first name? What is your Email address? Just so I can if if you having a follow up question or whatever. And then tell me like what area should I be talking about a concentrating on for future topics for webinars. And in addition man, you've got me for ninety days. No, no interruptions. What is the one thing? You've always wanted to ask me. But maybe we're too timid about calling the radio show. I mean, I I would be I called a radio show once and I was so nervous. I hung up before they. So I get it. I understand how that's kind of intimidating, but you could send me a little, and that's it the the form says, okay, thanks, and then I catalog all of the questions, I get and I put them into categories. And then we talk about the questions one of the questions that always asked. It'll take a third of all questions. What is a revoke -able living trust? Now, I've given it thought. And therefore, I believe that the word revoke -able it should be stricken from the English language revoke -able. And the reason is if I have maybe let's say five minutes with you. And you can't one question. And the question is Darryl. What is a revoke -able living trust? My answer is essentially this a trust is a legal document that a legal entity illegal concept in which assets are held for the benefit of beneficiary managed by a trustee. And the person that created the trust is called the trust store or sometimes called the grand tour or sometimes called the trust maker now depending upon the way the trust is drafted the elements in the language and the words inside the trust document now determines really what it's purposes, for example, one type of trust is to avoid probate I transfer assets into a trust. I the trust maker that trustee and beneficiary I have full control over that asset. Therefore, I still own the asset. Let's inside the trust. Just because I exercise so much control over it makes sense, right? Another type of trust is an asset protection. Trust completely different. Granted. It's still has a trust maker still has a trustee and beneficiary however, the assets in the trust are protected, but I have no control over the assets. Once it's transferred to the trust. Don't worry. There's a lot of reasons we use those, and you just have to kind of way the advantages and disadvantages now one of the characteristics that determines whether it is appropriate avoidance trust or an asset protection. Trust is whether or not the trust is a revoke -able revoke about now. That's not the only turmoil provisions that must be in there. But it's like one it's like maybe number one on the list like when they when they drafted the statute, they said it in your state and ass. Asset protection trusts, revoke -able. And then there's like five or six other things. Well, it's the first one on the top on the top of the list. So everybody says revoke -able. Well, the thing is the word revoke -able. It doesn't tell you what kind of trust it is. It just tells you it's revoke -able. Who cares? It's misleading. I don't want to waste the precious time that we have together to try to explain this concept of probate avoidance or asset protection. Either. It you still either own the asset or you don't because of a weird misleading and bigamous word Wayne word a tofu word like revolt -able, we should call it. What it does? Like how 'bout you don't own it anymore trust that protect your assets trust? Why don't we just call an asset protection trust? I mean that invokes image irrevokable who cares? Yeah. And that's the kind of thing we're talking about just like, let's break it down and make it easy to understand with spark a mental image that has.

"So whatever that ends up being called. Has. Really shouldn't do. Nobody should buy that domain to ninety nine is too much. Whatever Jordan plane ends up being called it has the potential to be a competitor. Because we were actually really hoping to position ourselves as a neutral party in all of this, which is a big part of why we have already been investigating ways to decrease our reliance on payment processors that had seen it have seen their place in the world as the, you know. The decider of who gets to speak online who does. And we have everything laid out for this. It's just we have so many other things like it's can't share it publicly especially in light of knowing that there's there's now a competitor do same China. Do exactly the same thing. Anyway. So they have the potential to be a competitor. But they also have the potential to be a very positive thing for our business because this whole this whole sort of this whole movement where we need. Yeah. Normalizing non patriots sources of creator funding, and normalizing non YouTube video sources and same time normalizing the idea of alternative platforms for for creators is a good is a good thing for us. So we'll be keeping a very close eye on this one, regardless of personal politics of the people involved. Speaking of again, we don't hair this is so. In the CUNY thing that it last week this something I kept on home because we had a lot of questions about this type of stuff is we don't care if you must know I think I've decided to do a chapter I've been meaning to do a book for a long time like partly because just like it seems like everyone's doing it. But also just because there's kind of a lot that I had to say that I don't necessarily feel comfortable doing video the thing about reading, and I plan to actually talk about this in it as well. But thing about reading is that you sort of inherent inherently limiting your audience to people who are willing to read. Okay. So I kind of feel like the same time we can have more private conversation. Someone's going to scan it some online to grab a single line. Someone has to read it yet. I'm just preparing. Yep. So anyway, I plan to have a chapter discussing my personal politics, which is oh boy something that I have never done before. And the reason that I've never done. It is that it's not that simple. And again, I feel like the only. Everyone sell stock elti. All right. So the only way for me to tackle it though. I feel is in written form where I can I can lay out all my points. I can reconstruct them to make sure that they're getting across correctly. And I can do it in a way that's far more verbose than most people are willing to sit through in a video type of setting because the problem with video is. The problem with video. Yeah. Is that even though you can sail? Those things you could read that entire script. I mean, that's the point of audio books and podcasts right is that you long form long form audio audiovisual content. The problem with it is that I have access to the retention graphs. The majority of people in a long format. Video will never hear the closing argument. That's a big problem. So anyway, again, I think you're gonna have a similar problem because you have people sniping parts of the book and posting online you can. But at least in that case. You've already you've already laid it out. And I mean, yeah. Okay. You know, what you're right. No matter what I say people are gonna find a way to misconstrue it. I'm ready for that. I also just I don't think that as a as not as polarizing figure. I don't think it has. I don't think it's gonna blow up. People will be mad. Yes. Someone because someone will be mad. If you're like, I'm a squirrel and I vote for nuts. But like, yeah, I'd be kinda mad about that. Because throwing away your vote is actually out with that said..
