Grace To Become And To Do
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. There were behind the veil. Hello, everyone. I'm Ron, your host, and on this podcast, the family talks about God's grace. We'll see that it's not by rules that we grow in God. But by his grace and deep love for us all. You know, we're talking about grace, you know, the real definition behind it and Dale has said this many a time is unmerited favor. We don't earn it. It's something God chooses to bestow on people. He is so willing to be graceful and give grace. Its, by grace that we approach him with boldness, Christ died for us, his blood was shed for us, covers us, and that's what allows us to enter into his throne room with that grace, and with boldness, what I would encourage people is to try it. Approach the father, approach God and say, hey, your son died so. That means I can be saved. That he loves so deeply and so thoroughly that he would rather have somebody approach him with a hunger, rather than just ignore him and turn and walk the other way. That hurts him so bad and, you know, and you love somebody so intensely and then, you know, there are cultures where they'll turn their back on you. If they think you did something wrong, they'll turn their back and you are no longer part of the tribe. And that is it hurts so bad to be excluded like that. But God is not exclusive. He's very inclusive, and if there is a heart, it doesn't matter. So much your actions. Look what David did. Look at Peter did. Look at the people in the scriptures. They all made mistakes. But their heart was set before the lord. You know, I think a lot of Christians know that you're saved by grace. Right. You're saved by grace, but then what happens is you have to start gaining God's love as you grow rather than keeping. In grace, a lot of Christians feel that way. Right. That's true. I think there's more freedom here in the United States than many, many cultures. But the freedom in American Christianity you might say, it's limited, like Christians say there are so many rules in Judaism, but there are so many rules in Christianity, and so many Christians will reject you if you have certain things that are different about you than where they're at. And that's not God's love. That's the grace of God, accepts you no matter who you are. Exactly. And accepts you even after you've accepted him. I really believe that the kingdom will come when we get it in our brains that that he really does love me. Yeah. Because your brain is a thing that tells you that you've done something wrong or you're not qualified for this. Or you've been rejected by this, and if you just realize on conditional love of God, no matter where you're at, I think that's going to be the thing that really gets us into a new level. Sandy, what you said, I really love because you threw in the word love. And I would say this, it is very hard to separate the word love from grace. Right. And you might even say that grace is evidence of love. Amen. Grace is working in your heart. That's how you face everybody. You can't be offended. Yeah. Do not take into account a wrong suffered, that's evidence of grace that grace is the proof of his nature. Living and growing in you grace is the proof that you're believing deeper and deeper. That you're really loved by God. And by others, it's a knowledge. You're really accepting the love of God. When you really realize that no matter what you do, you're not rejected. Right. What's it alive and living in you? The love of God. Yes. Grace is proof that there is nature is in you. And it's living and growing in you because we grow in grace. God in his wisdom will not put us into a place that we can't handle. Right. He will put us into a place that causes us to grow. Now, you could say that God put Joe in a place where he could grow, he came out the other side and look at what he got a double portion of everything. Yeah. What are we going to get as we grow in grace? Or we grow in love? Grace flowing through us to become and to do. As I've been looking at this thing of grace, I am so impressed how love and grace are so interwoven, and actually grace is dependent on love. And love is dependent on grace. Yeah. They are so intertwined. And here comes in another thing, joy. There's joy and grace. If you're extending grace to somebody and it's not making you not giving you joy or at least making you happy, you're not extending grace. Yeah. I will not judge you. I'm not your judge. I'm the agency of grace for you. I'm the agency of love for you. In spite of what you do, I won't take into account wrong stuff. I was reading a book on grace. It's just this afternoon. I was reading part of it. He was talking about the joy, that a new Christian has. Because they've just been accepted into a love that they've never experienced before. But then you look at an older Christian, and for some reason you don't see that joy, just quite as much. You are saying that it's because all of a sudden you have to act like a Christian. Yeah. You have to, and you have to be careful of your swear words. And suddenly there are rules. That's what I was coming from is, yes, I agree, love and grace can not be separated. But it's a thing of love means you're not judging. And grace means you're not judging, too. I keep thinking we're all the scum in the bottom of the tide pool or something. That's who we really are without the lord, is we're just scum, and so it doesn't matter what you would look like. But the idea of grace is you accept that, and you accept the joy in the lord because you're no longer scum because you have him in you, and you actually feel love for the first time. Then you can have all the grace in the world for anybody. Because you know your loved, you know their loved. And it doesn't matter what we look like, the sounds to me like you have to come to the place either at your initial Salvation or somewhere in your walk or maybe both. And maybe many times, to know that you're nothing that, like you said, you're for better word scum. You have no good thing in you. Unless you have a revelation of the depravity of the human nature that everyone has, then you don't have the appreciation of the grace, I think that's where human air against comes in, self reliance comes in, all those things because you're not recognizing God's blessing resting on your life and you're saying that this is me. I did this with my own abilities. I live my life with my own abilities. I succeeded in my own abilities. And you're not recognizing, well, that scripture says he pours out his blessing on the what on the just and the unjust, they can not believe that God can love them. There's a truth in that. Because they look at themselves and they really don't love themselves, but part of it too, Ron real quick if I can interrupt is people put that on people. There's a religious entity group that tells you you can not drink. So if you drink, you're going to feel guilty if you've had any association with that particular group. You see what I'm saying and so you feel guilty. You feel condemnation because you're doing something that, according to rules that sandy talked about earlier, you're breaking him and so you got to be a you might as well just continue because God's not going to love you anymore, right? I just met a man like that a couple of days ago. He was very boisterous. And just right out there, but I could feel when I was with him that God loved the guy. Just the way he was. You have to believe that God's grace and his love is a greater power of transformation than laws and rules. It's back to relationship if you can not feel the love of God, and you know that he loves you no matter what, then all of a sudden you want the relationship and you want you want him to love you back. It's just like when a young man finds a girl that he wants her, he wants her affection. He'll do anything for her. Absolutely. And that's the only way that you can get somebody. To really function as a Christian in real life sense is that there's a relationship there. And they want to do the will of the lord because they found his love. On this podcast, we have seen that it is by God's grace, not rules that we grow. It's his grace that gives us the means to become and to do.

"dale" Discussed on Asian American History 101
"So when you get into a profession that your parents are kind of like, I don't want you to do this. You're like, I'll show you. I'm diving head first into this. And I'm going to be the best I can be. So I think there's part of that that happens when we get into this profession. So speaking of top chef, you competed on the show twice. What was the first time on the show like for you? And in what ways was your second time on top chef different from the first? I mean, if you've seen the show, you know that that was like really angry Dale first season, right? Obviously angry Dale dealing with issues dealing with some trauma that I had talked about or dealt with. You know, there was just like, I was trying to be cool, but still trying to be me. I mean, that was always me. I had a bad nasty temper. It's not like I was different. I mean, if you walked out, so anybody cooks, you know, that was how it was working in those work in the kitchens, I was sous chef or a chef's cuisine at. But then looking at yourself, looking at how your actions are affecting the people around you. That was really kind of an open eye opening experience. It's not often where people see themselves. Their body, right? I mean, nowadays it's more, it's more with TikTok and all this other stuff. You can see yourself. And hear yourself on a screen. That was like non HD top shop. That's a long time ago, 15 more than 15 years ago, right? So I got to see how my actions affected other people by watching the show with my parents and then seeing them be cringey and not really proud of my behavior. And I was like, you know what? There's some I have to I have to do some work on myself. I have to look at why I'm angry..
A highlight from Free To Love
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. I'm Ron your host, and on this podcast, we are asking ourselves how we become free to love with God's love. You know, look at our nation today of young people, you know, they're not being trained up in the way they should go. Right. According to what scripture talking about, now we have young people who are not disciplined, proverbs, huge about disciplining children, so that they learn their way, and without guidelines, you know, what's a scripture without a plan, the people perish. What was the Steve covey, right? Back in the day, he said, imagine, climbing the ladder of success, only to find out when you get to the top, you're on leaning against the wrong building. He just wasted your whole life going the wrong way. God's love is not human love. Not at all. God's love has guidelines. God's love has restrictions because God knows that if you don't have restrictions and guidelines that you're going to go in ways that are destructive and so you're talking about the ladder against the right building of the wrong building that ladder is God's word God's guidelines, God's love. I agree with you. I don't think that the generations that are coming up, and I know that's a kind of a generic general thing because it doesn't fit all people, but it fits a lot of people. That it's against the wrong building. They want to be independent. They want to be self sufficient. They want to leave their own life. It was true. Again, that's the fruit. You look at the fruit, and we looking at the fruit of that type of thinking and that type of lifestyle we're seeing chaos and destruction and a mess. In the world, the fruit is the proof. If people live a godly lifestyle because they are open to the word and open to God's love, their lives will produce that fruit, and those that don't, their lives will produce that other fruit. So even without a word, if you have eyes to see and you're not walled off to the truth, all you have to do is look out there and see the truth. We want to lift the limitations of appearances. Right. Right. I say this because I have a friend and I've mentioned him many times very dear friend. I've known him for years and he is honest. He is caring. He helps people, and I couldn't stand it after a while I asked him, I said, what church do you go to? He was offended. He says, I don't go to a church and it took me back. I didn't mention it again. For a long time, and I told him I said, I want to apologize. You know a while back, I asked you if you went to church you just do so many of the right things. That I thought you went to church. And he still did not want to discuss it. But I got my apology out there. To make myself feel better because I didn't see whether he knew who he was, and how he was acting. The Rain falls on the just and the unjust, but who are we to judge which one's which? Yeah. I don't want to knock Christianity, but they've got a lot to learn from the people who are not sitting in the pews because God's love is flowing out there in all ages. It's amazing how he moves and the eyes to see is not looking around sitting in a pew. You go out into the world and say, lord, show me where you're moving. Right. You'll be surprised he's out there moving and doing and creating and bringing forth so much more than has been locked up. Once we learn how to love, then we're free. We're not bound by anything if you're free to love. Amen . And God has no rule against that. There's no rule in thou shalt not love. And there is no hesitation. There's no holding back. There is no waiting. It's one of the things we can do and just go crazy with. I love what Dale saying about breaking down the restrictions. You wall this person off because they're quote not a Christian or they're not reading their Bible or they're not going to church or they don't look a certain way. Right, they don't walk a certain way. They don't look a certain way. We're coming to an outpouring of God's love on this earth that's going to blow people's minds and it's going to lift a veil of deception that Satan's put upon the earth saying you have to be this way or that way to love somebody, it's not true. And you don't have to be a Christian and you don't have to be. You don't. You don't have to be those things. And that right there, that statement right there. You don't have to be a Christian to love. You can be crucified out there for that. Just the reaction to that statement proves the point. Exactly. If I receive hatred and resentment because I said you don't have to be a Christian to love with the love of God, that proves the point. It does. Proves , we're all human. Right. There are people who have so many concepts and wrong understandings of first off who God is, who Jesus is and what the scriptures say, they've been taught and it goes back to what we were talking about, how you teach children, too. You teach them how to love. These people have been taught how not to love thinking it is love. Yeah, I guess, kinda. Yeah. You are wrong and you're gonna go to hell because you don't believe the way I do. Right. Yeah. God loves all mankind. Does he like what's going on? No, he doesn't like necessarily. He doesn't like our adamic nature and stuff, but he loves who he created. You know, you think about somebody. Dale, you used to build race cars. You build a race car and you put something special into it. That's got you in that car. You love that car and you want to race that car and all these things is wonderful and one of the hardest things you ever want to do is get rid of it. Yeah, I know. Because it's yours. Yeah, we're not young anymore, right, Dale . No. He has his life invested in people and in this earth, he doesn't want to just give it up to Satan and let things just happen Willy nilly. No. He's got a plan. And that's a beautiful plan that he has. He only gave us one commandment. And he said so in the scriptures, you can throw them all out the window. There is only one throw them all out the window. There's only one commandment, and that is you shall love the lord your God. With all your heart with all your soul with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself. Right . Amazing. And Christ, our pattern son, walked that out for us. He walked out every step of that commandment, clear to the cross, and on the cross, he said, father forgive them for they know not what they do. Right. Father and still your love in us, let it be our DNA. Let me lay down my life. I want to follow in the pattern. That you have created that I can be pleasing to you. Well, on this podcast, we've seen that without God's love and discipline in our lives. Our lives become destructive. Opening up to his love and discipline ensures that our lives will produce the fruit that he is looking for, and we will be a blessing to those around us.

Caller: On Jan. 6, Donald Trump Meant for People to Riot
"So we're going to Dale in Columbus is going to be the recipient of my goodwill. I'm doing my breathing exercises, Dale. Tell me why you disagree with me about my assessment that this January 6th Thursday night hearing in prime time is a sham and a witch hunt and a joke. Okay, Mike. Well, I don't understand. Why don't you play the whole sentence of Donald Trump? He didn't only stop at peacefully. Every time when he gets to peacefully, you always cut it off. I don't understand that. Do you remember he said, go down there and he said, if you don't fight for your country or whatever, you want to have a democracy. I quoted him just now. I quoted him. Have you heard me say I quoted him? He didn't say it right in that sentence either. I didn't cut it off. He didn't say go peacefully protest, then go fight. He didn't say that at all. I said it in a different part of his speech. But do you think he meant riot? Basically, yeah, because the only reason why I'm saying that is because, you know, he always was able to get people to do different things. And then when he gets people in his cabinet, he uses them to the best of his ability and then he kicks them to the ground. Well, you just change the subject. What I asked you was, do you honestly believe that when Trump said, I know you're going to go peacefully protest. And in a different place than the speech said, going to fight like hell for the country, you think he was instructing people to riot at the
Caller: Twitter Banned Pres. Trump for Being Pro-American
"Dale, tell me why Donald Trump was officially banned from Twitter. I'm going to just tell you that I think it's because he's pro America. And but that can't be there. That can't be their stated reason. You know, it will never be their stage. But what do you know what their stated reason is? Well, no, they don't have one. I don't think they do either. I'd love to know. He has a view that the left doesn't like. He was influencing people. What's the reason?
Dale Wilcox: What Immigrants Can and Cannot Claim Asylum For
"Let me say from the beginning here, no one has a right to immigrate into the United States. That's a privilege that we grant to people. Okay, no one has a right. So there is no human right to migrate to the United States. So we can shut down our board. They almost stop you right there because we think you brought up a great point. I don't want to miss it, okay? So they come back. This is what you hear from a lot of liberals in Congress though. They classify folks coming in illegally from countries and name the country. And they're changing it from an immigration issue to an asylum issue. In which they have the right to asylum. Explain that difference to our listeners. Yeah, well, our law is very specific regarding asylum and refugee status. There are only 5 grounds that you can claim. For asylum. You have to be persecuted by your government, so to claim a sound. You can not claim a solid because, oh, there's too much crime in my country. I want a better job. There's too much gang violence. Those are not legitimate grounds to claim asylum. You have to claim that your government is persecuting you based on one of 5 grounds. Your religion, your ethnic ethnicity. Your political point of views. So most of the people coming into the country do not qualify for asylum. Once you get here, you have a right to request asylum, but you don't have some kind of human right to asylum in the United States. You can request asylum under our law. If you qualify, you will be granted. But you know what? 89% of people who come here who have come here claiming asylum don't qualify in the court immigration courts do not eventually end up granting them a soil.
Dale Wilcox: Illegal Aliens Are a Health Risk & Security Risk to All
"So health wise, we've seen a rise in measles. We got rid of the measles in 2000. 2000 we eradicated the measles, but it's making a resurgence. It's coming back. So there's a health risk. When you have people coming across the border who aren't screened, and anyone who's been through our legal system with immigration. No, you have to go to a doctor. You have to have tests. You have to have a TV test to prove you don't have TV. Illegal aliens just come across and they're intermingling and their kids are being sent into our schools immediately. So it's a health risk. It's a national security risk. Crime is rising. And I think the one and on drugs, drugs pouring across the border. With a porous border, we've seen rises and deaths is specifically a 100,000 deaths last year because of drug overdoses. And now fentanyl, which comes as principally comes across the southern border, sentinel is the number one cause of death for people ages of 18 to 45. Number one cause of death. So everyone should be interested in this. Taxpayers. If you're just, you know, you feel that you don't live near the border. All this doesn't affect me. Well, first of all, Biden is flying those people into your backyard in midnight flight. So you should be interested. But taxpayers are getting soaked. Having to pay higher taxes to for government services to educate the illegal alien children because of a terrible Supreme Court decision many years ago that said that K through 12 education has to be free for illegal aliens. So this affects everyday Americans all taxpayers.
Dale Wilcox: Getting to Know the Immigration Reform Law Institute
"All right, hey everybody. Great show today. One of the biggest problems we've got going on right now and it's the least reported problem that we have right now is the problem we're having on the border. Our southern border. Well, I guess it depends on if it's a problem depending on your perspective because on Dallas, not a it's not a problem to the Biden administration. In fact, the Biden administration, if you judge by vice president Harris, has no idea where the southern border is, much less wanting to fix it. As ranking member of the House judiciary committee and being on that committee for a long time, our primary focus in our committee was immigration law and I can tell you that what's going on on the border right now is a travesty. What is happening is the national security risk and we are in we've got to fix this. And the mainstream media will not talk about this. We're going to have a chance to talk today about our immigration problem and I'm excited to have Dale Wilcox from here from immigration reform law institute. Got a good friend of both of ours, Tom hollands, who's been on this show many times in Tom and I go back a long ways, let's just say, as you well know, folks here listen to podcast Tom's a little bit passionate about this issue. So he works with this group and Dale and his group have been out show fighting in the front lines this bringing lawsuits against the Biden administration winning these lawsuits. And I just want to put it today this we get are able to use your listening to this podcast. I want you to put a perspective on just how bad our southern border has become and a little less than 14 months. He's getting ready to get
Caller Comments on Mark Davis & Mike Gallagher's Take on Biden's 'S.O.B.' Comment
"Every morning I do a hit with Mark Davis on his morning show on 6 60 a.m. the answer in Dallas, we post every one of them on the Mike Gallagher show podcast, he and I are very like minded and we're dear Friends off the air as well as on, but once in a while we disagree, you can check out that podcast, by the way, as I guess Dale does in Detroit, Mike online dot com subscribe to our podcast. Get the M and M experiences we call it because it's a great, it's a great ten minutes or so of radio. And today was action packed. So whose side are you on on this one this morning, Dale? Well, first of all, I listen to it live and I'm on not on your side today. That's all right. Tell me, tell me why. So you don't think we look silly when we complain about Biden calling douchey an SOB after four years of mister mister Trump? In this particular case, context is key because in Trump's case, when he called Todd an SOB, it was right out in plain sight. He was doing a speech. And it was more like, oh, that's kind of a crazy SOB. SOB. He said, oh, he's a sleepy SOB. Whereas in this case, Biden said it kind of under his breath, aside. And he was actually calling him. It's a totally different thing. Yeah. I understand. But I just think we just you're not wrong. Mark wasn't wrong, it just to me appears kind of silly and sort of gives them a lot of ammunition when they say, you poor snowflake Trump supporters. You defended Trump for four years and now all of a sudden you're getting you're offended at Joe Biden calling Peter douche and SOB. It just seems silly to me. This laugh that we shot laughing off and realizes the other caller said, this is a symptom of Biden, Biden, losing complete control of this presidency.

The book awards could be my way of marketing. Absolutely believe it or not. There's a lot of book awards out. There that will showcase all of their winners on a site. They will share it across social media. Heck there's even some other marketing and promotional opportunities for instance. I've done a couple book awards where they've given me editorial reviews that could then use and other areas so that part was really kinda cool. You got to dig and sift through some of the awards to figure out what's going to be the best fit or you should get book award pro. I'm just going to go ahead. And just over that. Because i don't even have to think about it. I just leave them in charge of but the nice thing is you can sift through those book awards and see what you're you're gonna get for submitting.

Evidence That Early Alzheimer’s Can Be Reversed With Dr. Dale Bredesen
"I want to start with a big picture question that a lot of people who are listening to this podcast watchings view on youtube one. Oh which is is it truly possible to recover from alzheimer's it's a loaded question and some people might even say it's a blasphemous question right. But you're the man to ask. I would agree with you. It's blasphemous but absolutely we've seen it again and again and again As proof for example we just published a our trial proof of concept trial In that trial eighty four percent of the people actually improve their scores so we have unquestionable objective evidence of improvement. And when you say you publish your trial right for those folks that are just new to you right and are not familiar with your protocol program that you've designed. Let's give a little bit of context around this. What was that trial trying to look bad. And what answers came from it. Yeah great point so way back in two thousand eleven we were looking at root causes as as you well know root cause medicine is critical and so we were looking at root causes of cognitive decline in two thousand eleven. We proposed the first comprehensive trial for people with mci or alzheimer's. And let me. just digress. For one moment to say this concept of mci mild cognitive impairment has really hurt people and the field when you say that someone has mild cognitive impairment that is like saying they have mildly metastatic cancer. It is a late stage of the process. Typically they've had the underlying pathophysiology for fifteen or twenty years before they're getting a diagnosis of mci and then about each year. About ten percent of those people will convert to full on alzheimer's which is a which is the end stage of really. What is the alzheimer's pathophysiology and just pause there for a second. If you could rename that right come up with a different term just to show people the severity in the weight that comes with data. Is there any thoughts of what you would wanna call that absolutely so there are four stages you a symptomatic subject of cognitive impairment. Mild cognitive impairment and alzheimer's what they should be called is pre alzheimer's. That's the that's the A symptomatic period. Subjective is early stage. alzheimer's disease what we call. mild mild. Cognitive impairment is advanced stage alzheimer's disease. And what we currently call. Alzheimer's disease is final stage
Intuitive Eating When You Work in an Office
"How do you step into intuitive eating and away from structured meals when you work in an office environment and bring your own meals and snacks. I'm having a hard time figuring out. How to truly intuitively eat in this setting due to my having to prepacked food to bring to work so thanks dale for that great question and before. I answer just my standard disclaimer. That these answers and this podcast in general are for informational and educational purposes only and are not substitute individual medical or mental health advice. So this is a great question. And i think it gets atta misconception about intuitive eating which is that intuitive eating is about always eating exactly what you're craving in any given moment that's really not true while it's certainly important to be able to eat while you're craving when it's available to you when it's economically and logistically feasible. It isn't always going to be and really the ability to always eat exactly what you're craving in the moment without having to pre packer preplanned is something. That's only available to the extremely extremely wealthy who have the ability to just order food every time they want something right. Have seamless or post mates or whatever just deliver food constantly to their house or have a private chef prepare food for every single meal and snack for the rest of their lives. It's just not feasible for the rest of us right for the rest of us. There are always going to be times that we need to prepacked food or preplanned. What and where we're going to eat and that is not antithetical to intuitive eating at all in fact it's a really important part of intuitive eating because intuitive eating is about making sure we have enough food and have our needs for food. Mets in whatever situation where in and for those of us who work in offices and can't afford to buy our meals and snacks out every day or who work in workplaces where there isn't even anywhere nearby to buy food. We have to pack our meals and snacks in order to make sure that we have enough food and have our needs met which is again you know. The central thing about intuitive eating those are the most important principles of intuitive vedic. Now the tricky thing about packing in planning meals is that dia culture in this day and age definitely makes quote unquote meal. Prep a total thing right. And if you look at instagram in the hashtag meal property i don't recommend but just as a thought experiment you would see that diet. Culture really has the lock on this concept of meal. Prep and so when you're preparing and pre packing meals to try to make sure you have enough and have your needs for food met in a way. That's consistent with intuitive eating. It's important to make sure you're not meal prepping and packing in diety way and the key to that is keeping things in mind pleasure and
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.
"dale" Discussed on Self-Publishing with Dale L. Roberts
"The value of the review of a book first of all it aids in third party credibility having somebody else say hey. This book is great is a way that browsing customers or potential readers are going to be a little more susceptible or a little more willing to first of all. Purchase your book or even more so. Read your book also. Getting reviews helps out with marketing. Because you can go out. And say hey. My book is amazing. But somebody else says that. Your book was amazing. Can grab a little quote. Their fair use folks. We go to share that on out there and say hey this is. This book is great. Says i dunno engelbert humperdinck that whoever might be was probably not a great example. And there's also another theory when it comes to reviews it also helps out in search engine optimization because by having even more data on your product page or put with your book online it will generate more traffic and more discover ability now again. That's a theory especially over on the amazon platform. So now we've gotten the reviews part out the way. What about editorials book reviews. What the heck are those. Is you hear this quite often. Some people are like well. There's no. I don't know anybody newspaper. I don't know an editor. How am i supposed to do this. No contra independent book review summarizes at best when they say this i'm going to read it verbatim. An editorial book review is unbiased. Reader focused review of your published or soon to be published book often used by publishers on marketing. Material book covers posters and on the editorial reviews section on their amazon sales page that lasts parts a really nice one in. We're gonna put a pin in that because we would come back to that probably towards the end so what is an editorial review like this varies per platform say that ten times fast varies per platform and it really depends on what they offer most instances and aditorial review with specific service sites. They tend to have more discerning readers and people that are going to give you a more detailed review places like qurqus in union square review have readers who picked every last detail about your book. Apart that includes cover design the ad. Copy ak your book description. Your titled choice content everything. It's very very detailed. The nice thing about a to'real refuses. They make him really good long. They're not gonna be like your normal amazon book reviewers like this was a great book review. I gave it to my grandmother. I loved it that type of review just doesn't really cut the mustard when it comes to third party credibility you really need someone who says precisely what this book is in why they enjoyed it. Or maybe why they didn't enjoy it and then with that at a tory review. You're able to kind of have some information that you can use his marketing collateral in. Put that out there and get it to where people potentially by more now. There are some other forms of editorial reviews that are not as professionals. Let's say as qurqus or a union square review. I'm not gonna point any figures one specific but let's just say that A blogger posts a review about your book on their website. Technically that's an editorial review is. It's an outside source. Maybe some unused that blogger as an expert of some sorts of that definitely qualifies as editorial review. All right so you probably saying yourself. It's all well and good dale. What's the cost is a no. This is going to be getting to glad that you said this. They'll stick around folks. Don't listen to the like the the. Oh i heard the number how much it's gonna cost and just to now because they're going to share with you how you can be able to select what's right and what's wrong. You most times editorial reviews the cost as little as fifty dollars to as much as five hundred seventy five dollars or even more depending on how much you're going gonna be buying as far as the quantity goes to be clear when you get an editorial review that usually does not consist of them doing the review and posting it on amazon. No no no. No no no. Because that's buying reviews. Its getting to get against terms of service over on amazon. So they don't do that. It's okay. i think you understood that though Editorial reviews will be simply something that they're going to share on their website maybe to the email list maybe to their youtube channel so on and so forth. You're just able to take the editorial review and place it where you would like a few of them on top my head here. I'm going to kind of go through. Some is not an exhaustive list. But i want to kind of give you an example. Reader's favourite k. Probably not my favorite site no pun intended when it comes to buying editorial reviews but they do offer a free editorial review that you can get through them really nice score to reader's favourite. Pick up you'll thank me

"Is episode. Eighty three here of the self publishing with dale podcast. And i'm just tickled to death. He took a little bit of time out today to spend a little bit of time me to talk about my favorite thing and self publishing books. Let's get right to the subject to hand to the matter at hand and it comes down to key words. The problem that most people have their belief is if i get the right keywords. It's going to be a surefire victory in though that was true about safe five. Maybe even ten years ago. It's not so much anymore. The reality is you can choose keywords that you want and it might be. It's profitable maybe there's not much competition but it's not an assured victory. Why is that. We're gonna take a deeper dive in today's podcast and discussing that but let me. Just go ahead and just lead with this. One's just food for thought. Why was it working so much better. Ten years ago say versus now. The thing is ten years ago. There was far less competition. There was less consumers being torn in different directions by very products so when someone went to amazon they searched for their thing whether it's weber shape shifter romance books or abd l. They'll baby diaper lover for those. That don't know what that is then. It was super simple. Just go ahead and place for that and then people would buy now. It's become so much more of a competitive game if you will because there's so much more factors involved and a very sophisticated system that is preventing your book from being discovered. Let's strip it down to the very basics. I think i heard a once said once is. This is a football well today. We're going to say this is a key word. What is the keyword..

And you know, I don't say this enough, but I appreciate each and every single one of you that it's taking a little bit of time out your day. So with that being said we're episode 76 of this freaking podcast. I mean we've been going seventy six weeks straight. So that's freaking awesome. But without any further bloviating cuz we got a lot of ground to cover today when it comes to self publish books online. It can be so stinking overwhelming. There's so many options. We're not really sure which ones to go with what's the pertinent information that we need to dive into to get started, you know, is this going to be okay for you or is this going to be okay for me? Well, that's why I'm kind of demystifying this process and this is why we're working on a 15th straight episode has self publishing a book online. The solution when it comes to publishing to various platforms can be found through what's called aggregate publishing how to aggregate publish your works like this you upload your content to a given platform. That's an aggregate publisher. Then they send it out to various Avenues to say places like Amazon Apple Barnes & Noble Kobo Google Play books. So on and so forth rather than having to go to each and every single one of those Dash boards and uploading each one of them individually. You can just do it through one and I guess what your CPA is going to love you to the end of the year because you'll have 50 different w-9s to file with them and it's only just one that you can have to worry about. We're going to be talking about aggregate publisher today known as tab Volvo. I'd heard about Tableau a few years ago. When the MacMillan publishing company known as pronoun went out of business pronoun was an aggregate publisher and it was great. I really loved It actually brought me at a fair chunk of change and was distributing some of my stuff over to places like Google Play books when I couldn't do that. So I was looking for some solutions wage in Tableau was one of them but had a little bit of a hang up and you going to find out why a little bit of a hang up in just a second here. That's not to say that tableaus bat. Don't tune me out because that's actually pretty good news full disclosure. I'm just curating information here. So don't shoot the messenger have never used any of this stuff. So anything I say is an opinion when I say well that's good or that's bad. It's just from the outside looking in that I'm saying this I can say for sure I can say for certain that the alliance of em, an author's very reputable company that it's a non-profit organization run by Indie authors for Indie authors. They fully vet different services and part of those Services is off. Watchdog service and they have actually given Tableau in excellent rating and they're even an ally partner. So that speaks volumes to what they you have and what they bring to the table just to kind of summarize before we jump into things if you listen to my episode about published Drive Tableau functions much in the same way, but there's some deviations there's some differences than what they have with published drive. So before we jump in with all that, let's break down each one of the things they do what they do not do is they do not distribute audiobooks. Just going to get that off the table get that out the way they don't deal with audio books whatsoever. They distribute e-books and print books. Now. I'm going to save some of the stuff for last for instance. We're going to talk about royalties and how it's all paid out a little bit later because wage They're all the same royalties. So for ebook distribution and it appears for ebook and print book that they have 35 online bookstores and they also feed out to scores of other bookstores online. But part of those bookstores include Amazon Apple Books Barnes & Noble booktopia never heard of them before wage Scribd Microsoft. I thought that was pretty interesting. I had never seen anybody should be two Microsoft before overdrive and another one called readings and then they just say home and More in quotations. I tried to track down there and more to find out what these other 35 different platforms were but I couldn't find a job information literally couldn't find it anywhere. You're going to find out why there was some issues that I had

"And sometimes those C, P, C was, so and Amazon wouldn't even spend that full dollar. It was insane. I would have maybe nine cents and get a you know, a conversion on that one and immediately profit easily like four five bucks per sale. So Amazon advertising. And by the way, got full video series based on that with Markelle OT. No, he gave some awesome value tip number three, conferences, and networking events. Get out of your writing cave and get out into the world. And start to talk to people. I know video chattings great. That's one of the ways I like to kind of not have to leave my house, but every now and then you have to step outside, you come presumption and start to get to know other people because it's the connection sometimes that really builds the bridge to a larger audience, I can't tell you how many opportunities I've afforded myself because I've been willing to step outside my comfort zone and go to these conferences, and goldies network meetings. And there are times or I don't want to do it. I I'm just like my wife and I will be complete wallflowers, just like, oh, I don't really feel like going to talk and anybody, and then eventually what ends up happening someone comes over and talks to us. And we strike a conversation, you start to warm up to the occasion, and you can meet other people that are either a related in your industry or be that might have some type of connection to someone else within your industry in if you can learn who they are, and really get to know. No them and start to build that relationship with them. They're going to be clamoring and just excited to learn more about who you are as in India third. What you do in your specific brand bit fiction or nonfiction. I just I can't say enough great things about conferencing, and network events that it just seems like every single time after a conference. I see a huge explosion in sales, and this can even be anywhere from a simple as affiliate products to videos to books to everything. Because if you really take the time to get to know people and build that relationship and stay connected. The nice thing is it starts to grow. And if you do this consistently, and you keep going out to networking, and conferencing, events and you keep in contact with these people at value stacks, and before, you know it, it's just going to blow up big already. So next suggestion number four interviews. Okay. So you can do these ones in the convert to your home, and some of them, you can actually step outside your home. So as an example, interviews committee were for, like, say podcasts YouTube channels websites media appearances so much more. And I'll even toss and things like guest blog posts, even though that's not the traditional way of doing interviews. But nonetheless, you can kind of get the idea reach out to people within your industry within your particular niche. So if you're a fiction author that writes, where bear shape, Shifter romance, and there's the wear bear shape. Shifter romance podcast, you would it be who've you to actually get in touch with whoever is in charge that podcast, consume their content become part of their tribe, and part of their community, and then get in touch with them. And find out ways that you can give back to that community because I promise you, if you don't go right out the rip and go. How can it be on your podcast? I want to be on your podcast. I'm going to be awesome on your podcast. Most people are going to say, no, I'm good. I'm gonna pass on that. That's, that's just not my thing. I think that if you really, really try to be observed people, they're going to give back to you. So podcasts are great YouTube, channels, I can't tell you how many times at least unweakened basis that I get at least one to two different people getting a hold of me, want me to interview them on my YouTube channel or podcast. Now folks before you reach out to me for interviews. I'm not currently accepting any any interviews. I've just kind put that all on hiatus because I just split into many different directions. Obviously doing a podcast streaming into a Facebook group, things like that. But this gives you a great idea. And then, you know websites reach out to websites, some websites will actually do like a virtual interview, and they'll give you a formula, fill it out. And you can kind of put it in a couple of them allude my mind. I know I've done a few back probably about four years ago with my fitness brand. So chances are likely. If you look for the name Dale Roberts fitness in some capacity, you might find interview somewhere last, but not least last, but not least number five in Email list. Oh my gosh. There's so many people that think Email marketing is dead. I say, let them believe that because as they believe that you can be the one who has again an unfair advantage over them Email marketing doesn't have to be hard folks. I can send out an Email broadcast on any given week in as I deliver great value time. And again, and I'm not just going to reach into somebody's wallet. The beauty is you can make some money every single time. Okay. So I'll send out an Email broadcast and sure, I'll get a couple of unsubscribe 's sherve. I'll get a couple of cleaned bounces. You know, I'm hard bounces he's me, but for the most part, as long as I keep them opening and intrigue. And clicking on what I have to offer I can make about fifty to two hundred dollars per Email campaign. But you can't just go in and start beating people up for sales. What I recommend is if you do an Email list of some sort, do it like you would in communicating with the friend. So my best friend Harold, we've been knowing known each other since we were about thirteen years old. And with me being about forty two. I think we can confidently say that we're close buddies. I would never reach out to my buddy herald and go, bro, by my fitness book, like, yeah. I'll I'll get to. That would be his answer, or. No. You know, I'm not gonna you know, he'd be happy. It'd be make for an awkward situations, so rather than just beating up my friend. It's going to be a case of me at least being a value. Hey, man. How's it going? How's your mom and doing is your is your son, faring? Well, did he do good in his new job? What are your plans become an Columbus and things like that? Oh, hey, by the way, man, I just want to let you know, just released a fitness book. Did you get a chance to check it out yet you know if not over here on Amazon would love it. If you knew anybody, that would be into it just send them that link and that would really help me out, bro. Hey, thanks. I'm looking forward to hearing back from you that simple, folks, you see so much about Email marketing, where people are like this ninja tactics gonna sell you many books today stopped the ninja tactics right? Email marketing doesn't need to be Jedi mind tricks folks, it doesn't need to be super sexy. Yeah, we can segment audiences, and we can really break it down to the nitty gritty. But at the end of the day, there's human beings on the other side of that conversation, not just bringing Bank accounts thousand case, people would just willy nilly give you their number to the Bank account. So you can just take out cash be a human being you hear that you need to be a real person because on the other end of that conversation is another real person. And every now and then you might get some people that might check, you know, you're just trying to sell me on things. Okay. Take a step back analyze what you sent out figure out. Okay. We did not go wrong. And then sometimes you just gotta chalk it up to people or just having a bad day every now and then you just might hit them on a bad day. It is the reality, the situation a little bit of an extra tip. Your folks. Never call it an Email list to your Email subscribers. Join my Email list. No, no. Is that the same thing as you poop list? No. I don't think so you just made the list. No, I don't want to be on your list. But, but, you know, one really neat you ever go up to like club and you see the long line run outside of it. And there's a long line, people wanna be on the VIP list hall. Yeah. Who doesn't want to be on the VIP list? So I'd recommend that. If you've got an Email newsletter of some sort, which, by the way, there's another tactic is calling me Mel newsletter because it's a newsletter hopefully. Stay in touch with them. You're sending something out on a weekly basis fell them. Join my VIP newsletter today, and I'm gonna go ahead and shoot you something just free of charge just because and they're going to be like, heck. Yeah. Why not Dale said my favorite word for re and a VIP newsletter? That means I'm very important, and who doesn't wanna feel important alright. So that's about it between five models of video Amazon advertising, conferences and networking events, interviews and Email list those five avenues or just a good starting point. And I recommend that you just try to really go all in on one and stick with it. Don't do it for the next thirty days..

"Or let's just jump right into things. So your books aren't selling what? What the heck Gibbs? Look, I got one finger point of board and three coming back because I actually have to go back from time to time and analyze why some of my books aren't performing because there's not going to be many times that you're gonna be able to put a book on the market, and it's going to continue to pull in evergreen traffic. It's going to continue to drive more revenue and set your business, and so many things we can talk about marketing promotion, but let's just get down to the Bundy lentils. We want to focus on what's going to make the biggest difference. But started out with the obvious choice. The cover this right here can make or break the success of your book, period. Now, there are some exceptions to the rule. There's some covers that are so frigging hit there. So Joe Joe, you kind of wonder what the Hecker people think? And when they go by this don't question. Those those are the unicorn to the business because quite frankly, there are millions of books being flooded onto the market within the course of the month and a bass majority of those ones that look hit do not draw a die. Time get your covered dial in I hate look. I get it. You're probably DIY till you die. So me too. But there are sometimes you gotta know what is inside you. We'll house on what is not inside your wheelhouse. So if you can't design covers might I recommend hire a professional just skip to the chase. Go get a professional you want recommendations, make sure you join the Facebook group that we have called self publishing books. Just search on up their answer three questions jump in there and get some recommendations from some people the next one. This is very very key. It's key to get discovered. Should title title makes all the difference? Now, let's say that you do get discovered. This is a couple of the biggest issues mistakes. I get every time. Someone says I don't understand why my book is not selling and then they send me their their book. And I say okay covers passable and then I look at their title. Capitalize words, folks. It is a title. You're supposed to capitalize the words in less. Your e e Cummings you need tidal get titles dialed in look professional because there's these subconscious factors working as the customers are browsing the marketplace and just one little thing. That's going to be off is enough for them the go while this is not worth looking at and they're just going to scroll on past. Here's the other one. Okay. The days of keyword stuffing. Folks are over stop cramming keywords into your title, in tears subtitle. NT your series name. I see this. And this is something that has been dispensed by quote, unquote. A would be Google grew from back inside the kindle publishing days, the kindle publishing gold rush. They he pretty much was telling people cram a bunch of keywords nonsensical. Just put it in their sheer discovered. More folks. Eight nine is becoming much more sophisticated and starting to discern the difference between a tasteful title and one that is just completely keyword stuff. You know, you're in. Trouble. And once again, I probably to blame on something like this as well. You know, you're in trouble. If you have for bringing lines for your title and your entire title of your book, I think luding title, subtitle and series name, your even in more trouble. If there's an ellipse sees on your stinking, title cat, kind of lip sees to who'd you got conflict. Bring it back a little bit dial in exactly what you're going to be putting into that a right next one ad copy. You could have the best calmer in the world. You can have that title that really grabbed someone's interest. But if you don't have the copy dialed in you are not going to get someone to part ways with their money. Sure. They're the exceptions to the rule to where some people see the covering. They said done or they got a recommendation. They said I'm just going to go ahead and grab it. The most part though, people are going to take a look at your actual book description, aka your ad copy key is folks less is more. Less is more. Now, I'm not telling you to do two sentences, nor am I telling you to do fifty lines of ad copy. Let's get realistic. You need to kind of get it to where you're sinked. And you're telling exactly what the customers can expect when they purchase your book. Here's the one. And actually there's three little areas. I'm gonna kinda hit on here. A good hook is what is going to really get someone compelled to hit that little read more hyperlink, and it'll drop it on down. And they can kind of see exactly okay. They'll read more get the good hook. There's too many people that are putting three sentences right out the rip you are immediately requiring the customers to do all the heavy lifting. Make it easy for them. Get it towards him bite sized chunks, otherwise they're gonna Pash up. There. Don't wanna make a hard on the customer. You wanna make it as easy as
