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
Vaccine Rollout Is Sluggish in New York City. Can These Pop-Up Inoculation Sites Help?
"Calls calls for for 24 24 7 7 Covert Covert vaccination vaccination science science of being heard at City Hall Mayor de Blasio announcing today they're working on setting up 24 Hour Coronavirus immunization station. Is in all five boroughs. Let's create the flexibility again. Give City. The freedom to vaccinate Give our healthcare heroes the freedom to vaccinate. So someone's 98. Let's get him vaccine. If someone's in one of Mitch Katz is hospitals and they're over 75, they should automatically have the right to be vaccine. We can do more than one thing at once, Governor Cuomo, saying major immunization hubs will be set up at the Javits Center. And on Sunni and CUNY campuses have his daily briefing. The governor also responded to growing criticism of the slow rollout of vaccines that hospitals in the state Roland he mandated by passing county health departments, 194 hospitals, 24 public hospitals, 170 private hospitals. Obviously, the overwhelming effort is done by the private hospitals. We need them to operate, and we need them to operate quickly. We put in place the seven day use it or lose it. You know they're 194 hospitals. If a hospital is not Competent. And can't do. This will use another hospital as the city and state deal with complaints about a slow rollout of covert vaccinations ended that rise in cases new pop up clinics are opening in the city to address the need one by one. San San wins newsman Glenn Schuck. Stop by and one of the new clinics in lower Manhattan this morning. The first couple hours these two new pop up vaccination sites opened. It's actually very quiet. But this man who works in private practice is very grateful to come in and get vaccinated. There's always a question, but my level of confidence is very high. You know, I've great respect for the people who designed this vaccine. It's just It's an awesome thing that they What the priorities. You know up front and they got it done. And you know, I'm ready to get my shot. No. Asked how slow the vaccines have been administered, he says, the federal government should have done more. You know, I'm not a guy to believe the federal government should be, you know, ordering people around and pushing into people's lives, But I think for this, there's a very unique situation where they should have taken more of a role. As a reminder anyone coming to these sites? This is appointment only. So you must set that up and also bring a completed covert 19 vaccine form and approval from your employer. But again, the city Health Department insists the vaccination process Is accelerating.
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?
"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?
"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. So if you have a path for them it makes it a whole lot easier for you to sell the idea of graduating into becoming an employee and hey starting your career at this company get a few years under bill and then move on to greener pastures. I got more on today's guinea wednesday's episode before that let me give to today sponsor support for today show comes from start your first online business might all new ten part audio course on himalayan learning this is of course is going to get you from one. That's gonna get you from thinking about your business to actually launching that business getting it out of your head and into the real world.

Nba and use code nba to get a fourteen day free trial again. That's himalayas dot com slash. Nba promo code nba updates cuny wednesdays question from cow. Should i hire interns for my startup. This was a tough one for me to deliver. But it's the truth if you're in the tech space cal. You need to grow fast quick. You can't afford having to train. And retrain retrain intern so if you need content if any procedures lock them into year with You know A chance to become a fulltime police. They pass evaluation. If that's not an option. Just keep moving forward. Do not worry about hiring interns. See if you can hire one experienced player on your team won. Experienced player can equal five inexperienced people or ten interns. I'm serious. I've had in police on my taint team. I have employees on my team that are gold. They are worth You know five or six hires. And they're expensive okay so You go you pay for but sometimes you actually save money by hiring somebody. That's worth their value again. This is my personal opinion. This is my personal advice. From my own experiences experience of the people i've coached the build their own businesses and and the stories i've seen with the soon as i've seen at one hundred dollars i wish you all the best cow with your startup goal.

You know. there's less pressure for me to perform. This is just human nature okay. Not everybody's going act this way but in general people will okay if you wanna use a rule of thumb but if the stakes are high and they really wanna stay there and they really think this is a good position. They're getting paid in there They don't wanna lose this job. They're going to have incentive to keep it. It's really hard to fight human nature so keep that in. Mind when you're making decisions like this.

"cuny" Discussed on Adulting Like A Mother Father
"I'm just feeling like i'm having a hard time being as energetic for some of these longer meetings and they're happening more often because our businesses are growing and so i just need to get better at it and i feel like check in for like regardless of what. You're doing everything that you're obligated to. You're saying you want to be able to check in and have one hundred percent of your energy and give it everything you have for each and everything. Yeah and i feel like i don't even have one hundred percent of my own energy so it's hard to give every single meeting or work obligation one hundred percent of my energy and i know that i'm capable of it and as soon as something's like wrapped up i'm happy i'm like okay. We got there. We did it. But i think it's just i think i think it just has to do with the pregnancy and to be honest like just being more tired year. I mean. The reality is a pretty full plate so i have a couple of thoughts number one. I think it's cool that you're even thinking about that. Because that's something i think about two and i want to be able to be memorable in that sense that whatever you you obligate yourself to put yourself into that you give it one hundred hundred or one hundred and one percent of your energy right because to me that that's memorable and people recognize that but not being able to do it for each and everything every single time. I think. That just makes you human totally. Yeah but what was nice as that. I went into the session. Everything's via zoom. Keep in mind. So i skipped from one zoom meeting to another and i felt like i was giving back to myself and like focusing on things that are the foundation of who i am and that felt good so it made my session that much more powerful. Because i was able to like decompress and realize that like yes. All of these work obligations. Feel like they're so important and they are but what's really important is your own health and wellbeing. And that's the best way to approach everything outside of yes. Yes and what's even better is. I got out. And i was like you know what we're doing a podcast. We're going to get some qna's going because everyone who listens to the show seems to really love qna's and i think it's really great for us because these are questions that we don't necessarily ask one another probably wouldn't even think helps us mix it up a bit. Yeah and i think it's just it's just another level of making life and quarantine. Okay so should we take a break and come back with some cuny's to me okay..
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?
"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
Melatonin, CBD, Creatine, and Immunity Boosts
"Chris Welcome welcome to another episode of. Ask The guys here. We have a title. So here we are. This is what I would we do. Five or six other episodes like this before it's been a while and well we've done. One and people have been asking so you are again Chris is. Chris Irvine. On that nailed it the Kitale tallest. Trying to new break out a little bit more and changes named you just name. We talk about so. Talk about what you're stuck. We'll talk about it off off off Mike. Be Out. We're GONNA. Talk about stuff. Hopefully, not everything Joseph's. Chris's our resident expert here. BIA curiosity so cuny time. This one is about supplements if we got a lot of questions about. Settlements how to use them when to use themselves. Fire him off to see. We have all right so first question we have is from Heather N. and the question is should I supplement with Melatonin? If I'm having trouble sleeping so I would say no, and we can this. This is in my newsletter couple of weeks ago I. Don't know if you read that, but tour down a little bit. MELATONIN has its place. It is a precursor to a letter to the. Is Naturally secreted by your brain anything that's naturally secreted by your brain. I'm not a huge fan of. Taking Sasha Sisley. This is actually if you look at it, it's the only hormone that you can get without a prescription. Technically. Hormone your body. It's the only way you can get without a prescription interesting, yeah! I mean I. think my thoughts with Milton I think the answers that depends because I think it depends on. 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.
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.

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

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.

"No, I think I think this is a good tip. And we discussed it a little bit last night on that on that CUNY. And how for me, it's hard like I so I, I gave the example of I'm a I'm a, I'm a snacker. I love corn chips. That's my, that's my default, you give me a hard time about that focused in on that a little bit. I just never known people like corn chips. Do you give in salsa and guacamole and you just eat them sometimes sometimes I just think, because it chips, okay? I don't know if you get the flavor kind or displaying salted kiss. Organic blue corn chips. Okay, that's enough flavored. I think it's weird. I mean, I think if you get the ones that have the seasonings already on, and then it's sort of, like that is your that your substitute for the dip flavor. That's coming with chip when sometimes a diplomat homeless or sausa- bark, but well, last time snack on them just like throw on the plate and on him. You bake your own very easily. And they're not gonna be as good as the ones that are fighting oil, but they used by corn tortillas and just put them in toaster. That's a good idea. I mean, they give you the crunchiness and this alternate and flavor, but they don't have the oil, which is what makes them so good. But maybe I should maybe I should a airframe perfect your fire, but I'll come over to your place with some going, not his next time or you back together. No anyway. But I was talking about how, how hard it would be for me to like, go through the grocery store and grab a bag of corn chips. And you and you said you response was well, that's because you don't really want to give him up. And I think that's a legit response. And. I think that's probably accurate if I really wanted to I just wouldn't do it, right. I think if you didn't want to, I don't, I don't think you would have a hard time at the store like walking past that, I'll maybe for a second, you. They ask you to chips and they said, no, I'm not going to, because I said, I wouldn't I would imagine that the last you think about it, right. It's not like the whole time now you're bother for the rest of the fitting, I gotta, gotta go this gorgeous. That's how you feel in the moment when they're in your house, and you want them, but probably not your story. No, I think in the store, it's really not that hard. But, but someone who is listening to the reason the hoagies until you stories because someone was listening to the CUNY. And I mean, I think that those like it is so much easier to make healthy decisions when you're creating a list, or when you're thinking about what you want. Then when you're actually presented with all the foods 'cause like, I don't know. I don't know how many times has happened has happened to me, but.

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.

His, you know, his political now is is just intellect in general. And there was a lot of pushback on that. And people were offended by that in a disability community.

"Respect of pitchers to throw pitches outside the strike zone yeah it's bizarre if you look at cuny right now where he's hit the ball hardest of course it's the pitches right over the middle of the plate you seen a lot of seeing committee pitches over the middle of the plate and i just don't understand it but of course it'll it'll settle itself down over time and probably just hasn't faced very good pitchers all right well i'm kind of proud of the extent to which we have not talked about the anki and the red sox this year not that we're actively avoiding talking about them or anything they're actually an interesting baseball story even aside from just catering to the east coast bias and the large media markets and everything but we have really given them their do i suppose both these teams have had seventeen in two stretches like right after one another the yankees just coming off there's and they've done it against some of the best teams in the league to these are just to really impressive teams and i think we knew coming into the season that this would be the division where we were most likely to get an exciting pennant race and that is shaping up and we're running into a situation here where maybe we'll see a team that is really good winning a wildcard which typically has not happened i think there was a an ace team that didn't win its division even though it had a hundred wins but it's pretty rare in this day and age for a team that wins that many games not to win its division and seems to be happening here in menu might end up with a case where they allowed card game will be a mismatch between one team that's really good and one team that's not so good anyway these teams are i guess we already knew that they were good i don't know that either one has really made me think that their way better than i thought they were in march but the pennant race has lived up to its spilling so far i guess too you have a horse in this race or a favorite even at this point.
