Keith Idec, senior writer with BoxingScene .com, good friend of the pod. He joins me to run through all the news of the week from the controversy coming out of the Alexander Usyk -Daniel Dubois fight to Terrence Crawford's pursuit of a Canelo fight. Can't wait to get into that. To a potential big fight in the works in the lightweight division. I'll talk to Keith about that as well. Later, Michaela Mayer, former 130 -pound champion. She is moving up to the welterweight division for her next fight. She joins me to talk about that move. And we get into her thoughts on her arch rival, Alicia Baumgartner, testing positive for banned substances. But first, Keith Idec, senior writer, BoxingScene, one of the most plugged -in guys in the business, which is why I love having him on so often. Keith, I want to start by giving a shout -out to Tom Brown, a listener dedicated who I had a chance to catch up with on Tuesday at the undercard presser for Canelo Alvarez, Jermell Charlo. Tom, of course, the promoter of that event. He told me he especially enjoys the episodes that we do together. So shout -out Tom Brown, TGB Promotions. Friends of the pod are everywhere in Boxing, Keith. I think Tom might be listening just for a reason to yell at both of us, maybe. But that's neither here nor there. Tom is a good man, though. All kidding aside, you know? He did say he occasionally picks up the phone and calls you after hearing something you may have said on this podcast. No, but look, I mean, it's all healthy, you know, it's all healthy exchanges and all that kind of stuff. And all kidding aside, Chris, and I like Tom and respect Tom. He's been in this business forever.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/17/23
"Bread aisle, are you ready to rock? Dave's Killer Bread is the country's number one organic bread for a reason. Always delivering killer taste, killer texture, and killer nutrition. This isn't bread. This is bread amplified. You've got the right stuff, baby, you're the reason why I sing this song. We got the right stuff, Mike. All that I needed was you girl, oh girl. We got the right stuff, baby. We got the right stuff, and I don't know why, every time we have a boy band birthday, it just sends me into that genre. New kids, right there, so who might it be, let's spin the big new kids wheel. It's Donnie Wahlberg. Donnie Wahlberg is 54. Have you ever seen an episode of Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck? Nope. I haven't either, because I just don't do network television hardly at all, but everybody just loves this thing. It's filled with values and just a good pro police thing in these. What's that got to do with boy band birthdays? Donnie Wahlberg, like his brother Mark, is these days quite the actor of consequence. Oh. He's Danny Reagan in Blue Bloods. Oh, Blue Bloods, okay. There you go. Well, happy birthday. Some would argue, why do we ever acknowledge boy band birthdays, but that wouldn't be me. I don't know. I don't think it's in either of our wheel houses. I mean, please, it's a 25 -year -old record. I don't know. It's just fun. And boy, did we have some fun yesterday. Congratulations on the two of us giving each other a lot of content yesterday. That's the secret. That's why we do this. Sure, we enjoy each other's company, but we know that it lights a fire under our own actual shows, and I'm totally kidding, even though it completely does do that. I really liked the passionate responses that we were getting for either people who agree with me that Republican candidates should unify and support President Trump. By doing what? By supporting Trump. I don't care how they do it. By doing what? By supporting Trump. What? There's no difference a day makes, 24 little hours. Yesterday you called on everybody else to suspend their campaigns, and to do otherwise is to fail to unify by Trump. That goes with supporting Trump. Of course. Okay, don't leave that out. There's no difference a day makes. Let me tell you, I've been thinking a lot about this. You don't want to see our birch gold survey at MikeOnline .com, which asks, do you agree with Mike that in light of the egregious act of these criminal indictments at the 11th they suspend their campaigns and support Trump, you don't want to see the results of that poll. I'm glad. What, 90 -10? What is it? I don't know. Now, does that say anything to you, Mark? Yes, it says that everybody who's all torqued off like you are, and like I am, by the way, the only difference between us is I want actual voters to weigh in, and we don't need to do another 15 minutes on this. No, we shouldn't. At about 8 .40 yesterday, I stumbled across something, and I think it'll make you feel better because we all have the same goal of having a kind of a universal moment of clarity that Trump is being horribly mistreated and hosed by the system.

Braids were invented by them and they're backed up by marching band. Marching bands are in on it too. The same way the mob and CIA was basically the same when he got Kennedy. Nobody wants to see a marching band. That's why you don't even have to go to them. They stand on the side of the road and march around at you. You know? And people in marching bands are different breed. If I wanted to walk in staff, the people I don't know or don't like, I just join a food court. Okay. I have parades by the line.

Michael Cohen: 'Diaper Donald Will Be Filling up [His] Diaper'
"Here's how serious they are. Check out the serious Michael Cohen, the chief witness for the prosecution of Trump here in New York, running to MSNBC last night and saying this. He could end up in prison. Based on your long years of service with him, how will he process that? Very poorly. As I like to call him sometimes in my tweets, diaper Donald, will be filling up that diaper. Because he, this is not something that Donald is capable of either understanding or contending with. He, as you stated, accurately, he believes he could control every situation. This is not a situation that he has any control over. And that's making him sick to his stomach. And you think he'll feel genuine fear. Yes. I think right now he's beyond petrified. Because of you, right? Michael Cohen, you're the guy, you're the serious guy that's the chief witness for Alvin Bragg. You're the guy that has sparked all of this, the guy who you run on MSNBC and sit down with Ari melber and call him diaper Donnie and say diaper Donnie is filling up his diaper,

"Use and over the last years, words have changed and they've taken on such a emotional baggage and I think it's really challenging now for a lot of people to get through their day because of the words and how they impact people in that they're now very triggerable well, there's a cure for that. It's really, really, really simple. And I truly believe this is a cure because there's obviously something wrong. And the cure is one simple phrase. It's my fault. And I learned this after reading Jocko willocks a book extreme ownership, which I fucking believe everybody in this world should read. But what it did for me is as I was building the business is if something broke, I immediately said, sorry guys, that one's on me. And my team for long is time we're getting mad at me. They're like, no, you didn't fuck that up. We did. And I'm like, no, no, guys, look. That was why. It's my fault because XYZ should have happened. What I found is I'm not saying I have a fault. I am saying I fucked up something that caused whatever just happened to happen. And the moment I say it's my fault, my brain goes into solution mode. How do we fix it? How do we make it better? How do we do it right? The minute I don't take ownership of that thing and don't say it's my fault, I immediately go to fucking victim mode and start blaming people for what went south and as soon as I do that, I turn off solution and creative thinking and I immediately go to see what you did, see what you did, see what you did, right? And I had to train my team. I'm like, guys, what I'm telling you, it's my fault. I do believe with my fault. Somewhere along the line, something I did was the wrong decision that left us to hear. And as long as I understand that, always, there's a fix. There's a solution. There's a way forward. And if more people would use brace that phrase, it's my fault. We would freaking heal a lot of the stupid shit that's happening in our times. Absolutely. You know, I promise some laughter and so I always say, you know, something happens with your team and you're saying, it's my fault. It's my fault. And they're like, well, what is it? I hired you. Yes. That's a real thing. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah, it's my fault. I hired you. That's exactly what happened. Yeah, if it keeps breaking us over and over and over again, you know, that's the final solution as well, but, you know, I shouldn't have hired you, but yeah, that's a real thing. That's a real thing. I know. Man, Donny, thank you so much for being here today. You got to come back because we could talk about we could talk about the language and the words fear for another show, but I definitely wanted to have you back. But thank you so much for being here today. Really appreciate it. Absolutely. And guys, do me one favor. If you got any value out of this, listen to rob and I talk and you've got one tip you can use. Do him a favor and share this out with at least one of the person.

"My 50s. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to, it's not going to happen. My favorite video kind of long this topic is there's a really, really funny little person comedian. I can't remember his fucking name. But he's hilarious. I know exactly what you're talking about. And he goes, and one of his skits is like, you know what pisses me off? Is people who are trying to defend me who aren't another little person. Like, we're good. And that's how I feel about this whole neurodivergent thing. Like, I don't need you to pick up your sword and shield and fucking try and be my champion. I got me, right? Freaking. And we're in a world right now where everybody wants to go shave everybody else's shit versus letting people step up and figure it out themselves. That comedian is Brad Williams. Yeah, dude, he's talking. He's funny. I just saw him the other night. He's got a he's got, it's called fun size. You can check it on YouTube. It's kind of funny. He's just so funny. And you know what I love about that? Is the fact that and this is about you only fail if you quit. Yeah, just imagine being that size and the abuse that he must take and how he decided that he's not going to quit that he's going to embrace what life gave him of his size and his stature and he's going to take his personality and his his wit and his wisdom and he's going to become a stand up comedian. And it's not an easy thing to do and he did it. And I have to say that it's really so inspirational to see him up there. And you know, I'm sure the first time he did it, he got some sympathy last, but he earns his last. And he's really funny. And you can tell the only way you can be that damn funny is as you put in the time. So he's getting on these big ass stages doing these skits and stuff. I mean, you know, he's told that joke 500 times in different freaking smoky little dive bar comedy clubs, perfecting the craft and he's perfected the craft and it's brilliant. It's like the guy Tyrion Lannister has a what the fuck is cherry and drilled the name and fusan tip of my tongue. But he refused to take any role that was going to typecast him as an L for a leprechaun. Oh, you're talking about the guy from Game of Thrones. And then the movie and then the movie elf when he goes, oh, you're angry elf. Yeah. What a great actor here. Oh, phenomenal phenomenal. If you want to see one of the greatest commencement speeches of all times, go watch Peter Dinklage as commencement speech, the last two minutes of that speech are one of the most powerful speeches I've ever heard in my life. And the gist of it is fail, fail fast, fail better, and he's kind of the one for me that coined the whole thought process of failing better than God, that's brilliant. But it's a whole thing is they took what some people may look at them as a flaw, possibly or whatever else be like, fuck you. Hold my beer and watch this, and watch me tackle life. And you keep absolutely. Yeah. I love when we talk about fail. And on this way, is that people think that failure is a negative thing. It's a bad thing. It's a marker to let you know where you pivot and adjust to get to where you want to be. It's kind of like, you make a sandwich you want to make a bacon and lettuce and then you know sandwich. And you take your bread, you put the mayonnaise on the outside, you put the bacon on the inside, you don't cut the tomato, and you don't wash the lettuce. You eat it, you got mayonnaise over your hands, the sandwich tastes terrible, and you're like, well, there's a failure. Okay, great. Now what did I learn different? You know, I don't want the mayonnaise on my hands. Let me put it on the inside. You know, that sandwich was so thick. It was 6 inches thick at a big giant. Tomato on there. Close that, you know, there's a worm in my lettuce. I probably should clean it. So now you put the mayonnaise on the inside, you slice the tomato, you wash the lettuce, throw some bacon on there. And you have success. And then next time you may say, is it a failure? Maybe I should toast it. But it's all those little things in life that, you know, failure is something that can destroy someone when they look at it as failure, but it's not, it's a marker from the universe to let you know where you can shift and pivot. Yeah, I taught a 1 billion % agree. I mean, this is why I'm changing up the whole thought process because people get hung up on the word failure. I love this idea that life is an experiment because if it's an experiment, this is just a trial, right? This is just one way of doing it. And fuck, that way it didn't work. Cool. Like you said, let's figure out what worked, what inside of that, what didn't work, and let's go about it again and do it better. We do these things inside our company called champions codes. And a champions code is just kind of our guidelines for how we do everything in business. So along my driveway, if I go too far to the right, I've got a 40 foot drop off into my creek. And so 4 o'clock in the morning walk in, I jokingly tell everybody I got to keep it between the ditches. One way I walk into a fancy, the other one I walked my death. So our champions codes keep us out of the ditches. And one of our codes is go break shit. And we put that code in place because I needed myself and the people around me constantly trying new things. Knowing shit's gonna break, things are gonna go chaotic and doing them anyways so we can learn how to do it right. And we just know if things get complacent if we're not growing if we're not doing the right things, then it's a 100% because we're not breaking shit. And that's we're trying to completely reframe how everybody looks at this stuff. Yeah, it's interesting because words are so powerful, language is so powerful. The words that come out of your mouth really put things into reality. And the language that you use for one is your subconscious mind is also spiritual and a universal way, it's so important the words you

"Funny, because I do agree with you. I do agree with that. Yeah, and so it's interesting to ask my wife and I said, so I don't know if this is working. I seem like I'm better at thinking, and that's exactly what I told her, and she says, continue. And I said, I don't know, I don't know if it's working. She goes, from the outside looking in, it's working. Yeah, and I'm like, okay. Yeah, Elizabeth will tell me the days that I'm not on Adderall. Absolutely. Vacation from it just to make sure I'm not getting addicted to it. She'll look at me and she'll go. No projects today. I'm like, okay. Because I'm notorious when I'm not on it, I'm going to start this project. This project, this project, this project, and none of it's going to get done. I do this Sunday. I didn't take Adderall and I started 25,000 projects in the house. And I'm like, and now that I now that I'm back on it, and I'm seeing them like, oh, wow, okay, this, this, this, this. Yeah, yeah, it's pretty crazy. It's transformative when you realize that you have a challenge in your life and then you overcome that obstacle because you actually seek out help and there is help for people with ADHD. They can really help you. And a lot of it is just not the medicine, but also the way you look at things. And to realize that we're fucking crazy. Like we really are. The way that we do things doesn't make any logical sense. I look at it this way is kind of like watching TV and someone's changing the channels all the time. Like it amazes me that we're on a podcast and we do podcasts because we're focused for a good amount of time. But our brains with ADHD is that it's like our channel is being changed all the time. It's just all the time. And the fact that we get anything done is incredible and we do think outside the box. Well, and 100%. And I keep going back to it's an explanation for things. I had former bosses. I got frustrated with me because I had this internal switch that somehow I would flip and all of a sudden my blow my numbers up and completely crush and go sell stupid amounts of money. And then like the next week, like I turned completely turn off the spigot. I didn't notice it, but they would be like, what the hell are you doing? And I knew that I had somehow turned out to spit it when they come up and they start talking about you've got so much potential. You should be so I'm like, what the fuck are you talking about? And then I turn on the spigot. And I'd be the top producing salesperson again. And it was the most bizarre thing, but for me, if I lost interest, if it didn't excite me in the moment, I was out. And that's like an instant turn off. And it was funny, my therapist, she goes, we were in one of my sessions and she goes, do you leave the kitchen cabinet to open often? I'm like, yeah, my wife yells at me all the time. And she's like, you need to go get diagnosed with ADHD. I'm like, get the fuck out of here. I don't have anything. She goes, go get diagnosed. She goes, I'll write a letter. I'm like, I said, what's the freaking kitchen door's gonna do for anything? And she said, it's one of the things that I found that is the high indicator of somebody with ADHD is a literally forget to close the door, and they can be staring right at it, because their mind's already moved on from the moment. Right. And so I think for a lot of people to understand how our minds are clicking, and some of your biggest achievers in the world have ADHD. So it is somewhat of a superpower if you can learn to harness. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. But yeah, we just move on, even if we're still right there in the moments, like when people forget a memory when they walk through a door, we're doing it without having to move anywhere. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, we almost have time machines in our brain. It's kind of like, you know, you think about your work out of the house and I go upstairs to get a glass of water, and I'm like, oh, man, I gotta do laundry. And I start the laundry, and then I start half the laundry, and I hear the dog bark or something. And I'm like, oh, who's at the door? Oh, is a package. And then it takes, it took me 15, 20 minutes to get a glass of water, and I've started multiple projects. And, you know, I eventually make my way back to the office and hear alarms going off because I have a very rigorous schedule of what I'm supposed to do now, which really, really helps. And yeah. Yeah. But yeah, I will say for entrepreneurs in general that it's a beautiful thing. As long as you don't allow yourself to get frustrated with how you show up, I mean, I wear my team out. Because I'm constantly all right guys, we're gonna do this. We're gonna do this. We're gonna do this and we're constantly adding them going. And so most times they're trying to keep up. And then they'll tell me that I throw them a kerbal every once in a while because I'll stop for two seconds ago. Okay, what's your game plan? And they kind of looked at me. Like, you kind of always come up with a game plan. I'm like, yeah, I know. Your turn. Let's go. What do you got? And because I'm just constantly moving, you're like, we need to put some time together to figure out, I'm like, no, screw that. What step one? What's the first thing we need to do? And then I will come back at them. And so some of them have learned now that they're going to sit across from me. They always have a game plan in their backup. So because they don't, we're going to go down a path right now and build whatever game plan I want to build. So that's why it's my wife always says being married to an entrepreneur is like freaking riding pet shotgun and a car going 200 miles an hour with no steering wheel and no seat belt is kind of the same way being married to somebody with ADHD. Yeah, and we tend to turn on a dime really quick. Really the dog from. We absolutely are. Absolutely, we are. It's funny because people with ADHD is to have a stigma. And now I love that it's getting more in the mainstream. And it's not a stigma and people are talking about it. I mean, you can look on TikTok and you can see, and there's great information. And people are embracing it. And that it's a challenge, however, I love the fact that I have that brain because what I'm able to create and to shift and pivot and see things that other people can't see out of the box, I think is a beautiful gift to have. I do. One struggle with the mainstream right now is everybody's trying to label this as neuro something around you with the fuck they call it. I don't even know what it was. It bored me so much that I didn't even watch the video. Yeah, I know what you're talking about. And I'm like, I'm gonna look it up. Why the fuck are you trying to label this a thing? Can I just be Donnie? As soon as you put me into a box and they're roping in all these different mental things and I'm like, I don't even understand what the hell you guys are coming from. Yeah. I'm trying to think, I'm trying to think of what it is. Let me see if I can find it. I know it. Neurodivergent. And the fact that I know that in my head, I didn't even have to look it up. I was like, before I even got it. But yeah, neuro divergent, and that's a whole nother. I don't even know what it is. Now they're taking people with bipolar ADHD and they're trying to loop us all in this one big pie. I'm like, wow, stop. Stop. I don't want to be in a big pie of people. Can I just be Donnie? Can I just do my thing? Right. I don't need you to save me. That's interesting about it's interesting about that neurodivergent and I'm probably going to get hate mail, I don't care. But it seems it seems very, it seems that it's for people that get triggered easy because the videos that I've seen, they're like, well, if you know someone who's this, then you should respond to them this way because it affects them this way. And I'm like, I'm an old I'm an old guy, man. We've been around.

"But isn't that the point the centralization Because I know you've talked about how small businesses the more decentralized So isn't the point the centralization I mean it is And you can just look at everything they've done and they always basically portray it as we're going after the big guys We're going to get tough We're going to break up the monopolies We're going to go after the billionaires but all of their policies do exactly the opposite If you look back to the American rescue plan quote unquote seriously that happened in March of 2021 under Biden That's where they decided to give out the stimulus check so that Biden could get his Biden bucks to compete with the Donnie dollars from the year before But then they also snuck in things like hey if you are doing business online if you're or even if you're not doing business but doing payments online we're going to just lower that threshold for reporting to the IRS We're going to lower that from $20,000 and 200 transactions a year down to $600 We're going to then in the next legislation We're going to hire 87,000 more people at the IRS and allocate $80 billion in funds and you only need to have a couple of brain cells to be able to put together That's not going after the 800 billionaires in this country right That's coming after the moms who are selling on Etsy or who have a side gig that's coming after the small businesses of this country And it is being sold as nowhere We have to go make sure that the rich pay their fair share and guess who's got the fancy accountants and the fancy lawyers and all the legal loopholes

"You out there, where do we find you? So if they want to see our world and all of the companies they would do, text the word success, the 8 one 7 three one 8 60 30. And we'll send a whole bunch of free stuff all our social links and everything, how to get to us. I think there's some books and things in there as well. But if you just want to learn about our world and the things we're doing, text the word success to 8 one 7 three one 8 60 30 and we'll send you over a whole bunch of stuff for free. Awesome. And we're getting close to the end of our time last word. I always like to ask this if you're talking to yourself when you were still in the Marine Corps or some other somebody else that's still in or they're on their way out or maybe they just transition out and they don't like where they landed, looking around their own business, looking to get in entrepreneurship. What kind of advice comes to mind? 100% start, don't wait. The only regret that I have is 20 years of not creating 20 years of not building. If I had been started a business 20 years ago, the empire had right now, just out of pure tenacity and grit. I don't care if whatever idea you have, do it, start. And the faster you start screwing things up, the faster you start scrambling the faster you get to that place where you're like, I have no idea what I'm doing. And you start figuring things out. The faster you'll get to where you want to be. But if you are getting out of the military and you think this world, anything, you're going to lose, and you're going to lose quickly. Get out, start something, go all in, work as hard as you did while you were in the military. Well, don't work as hard as I did, because I didn't work hard to military. But put your head down and get after it. You'll be amazed at what happens. Some great advice, Tony. All right, so great interview. Thanks for sharing your entrepreneurial success story. Doing great things out there. We look forward to your future success also. Quick thing guys, if you get any tips or value out of Joe's podcast, you do him a favor and share this out with one person and be in a fellow podcast or I can tell you growing an audience is one of the toughest things here. Tell one other person to live this shirt, listen to this show. It'll mean the world to him. That's awesome. Hey, we didn't even rehearse that. I didn't even know that was coming. That's awesome. That's a good joke. Appreciate Donnie. Take care. These two veterans are asking Mike. Thanks for listening to veteran on the move. Your pathfinder to freedom. If you like the show, leave us a review on iTunes. Reviews are always greatly appreciated. So until next time, this veteran is screw Mike..

"Your business? Was it mostly the podcast? Yeah, so podcast led to everything. And so really, because of everything I had learned, those first 6 months, building videos, that second 6 months of business, I was still basically a success coach. We just came a content production company as well. What we were doing is we were literally selling packages of people where we would interview them for an hour. And then we produced a month's worth of social content for them. So every month, we would just send people a package of just a ton of blogs, graphic designs, all kinds of things to keep them going. The cool thing about all that is that's what taught me systems and processes and outsourcing and how to actually function as a business owner, which ultimately. Allowed me to grow the business and get to a point where we can actually scale it. Yeah, I think that if you've never run a business before never been a part of that and you jump right in, like a lot of military guys do and next thing you know, you think you just need to do everything. It's my business. I got to do everything. And so you have no other choice, especially if you don't have a whole lot of revenue coming in. You don't have much choice, but to try to pull off everything. And then instead of being the expert in a couple of things, like what you're used to, you kind of become a Jack of all trades, not really good at anything. Well, you know, I love that phrase Jack of all trades. And I want to speak a little bit to your whole point in a second. But the whole people always throw Jack of all trades out a little bit wrong. The actual full quote is Jack of all trades Master of None, but more often than not better than the master of one. Is really the full quote. So it's been thrown out of context for a whole lot of years. But to your point of the, you got to do everything. In the Marine Corps military or as an employee, somebody says go do something. You don't question you just do, right? Because if you don't, you get in trouble, you get fired. When you start a business, most people stay in that mindset of, okay, it's got to get done. I'm just going to do it. The problem is, when you're building a business, if you continue down that path, you will create a crappy job for yourself and not a business. Because a CEO thinks in who not how. An employee always thinks about how do I get this done. The CEO goes who can get this done. And then biggest difference people will find is getting very creative on getting people to help you out with things you need done. Prime example. When I first started, I needed help editing the podcast. As you know, it's a hot mess to do all the editing yourself. It's a lot of damn work and I personally freaking hate doing it because what should take me a half hour would take me freaking four hours to get it done. And so I needed a podcast editor. Well, I gave a speech out in Dallas and there was a young guy there that was running a video production company. And he was a solopreneur. And he happened to be at the speech, and he said, hey, do you mind if I record your speech? I'm like, nah, that's fine. Record it. And then after it was done, he sent me back to this really cool video. And I said, man, I'd love to have you help me out on more things, but I can't afford to have some videographer follow me around town and doing all that. He goes, well, what else do you need? And I said, well, I need somebody who can edit a podcast. He said, well, I've never done that. I said, but I can't afford to pay you to edit the podcast. He goes, well, I just want to be around you be close to you because you seem like you're going places, you know about sales. I don't know about sales. How about you teach me sales? And I'll edit your podcast. And I'm like, I can do that. So yeah, a guy named Joe was literally the guy who edited my podcast for the longest time. And I just treated him services and told him how to sell. And now he runs a pretty cool company and everything. But those first, early years, every time you need something done, just barter your ass off and get somebody else to come in and trade, trade, trade. Well, it's awesome. So with what you know now, I mean, you're full time all in entrepreneur at this point. Not employee anymore. What's that feel like? It's wild. The biggest thing that nobody will tell people about running a business is you're going to meet yourself. And what I mean by that is at some point running in your own company, you're going to realize that there's no excuses left. As an employee, you can blame the world for everything. The economy sucks, markets down, the companies marketing is crap. There's too much competition in the marketplace. But when you run your own company, none of those excuses work anymore. Because if you let those excuses be actual things, then you're going to go out of business. So once you realize that success is your fault and failure is your fault. You'll get to a point where you have to look yourself hard in a freaking mirror and decide if you like that person looking back at you. And what I found for me is the day I finally decided that I was a pretty good dude. And that I deserve some good things in life, life got a lot better. Because if you don't like yourself, nobody else is going to. Nobody's going to want to be around you. And if you look at Jocko willick, whether you love and hate him, the idea of extreme ownership is a beautiful thing. Because if you can get to that place, then sales conversations get easier because the outcomes don't matter. Getting your business to grow is a lot easier because you're just living in a higher mental capacity that makes life more fun. And so the biggest thing that I've learned running a business is the answer is 100% how you see yourself, everything else gets a little bit easier from there. I don't want to say simple. I don't want to say it's a 100% easy. But once you know who you are and what you're made of, you can do some pretty killer things. And you're crowd around you will rise. The people you hang out with, you'll start finding other entrepreneurs that are going as big as you are. And we have a company model that go break something is what we say all the time because if things aren't breaking, you're not going big enough. So it's constantly trying things. We're talking about breaking things on purpose with trying new programs, trying new software was trying new sales, tactic, whatever, just so we can learn from it. And it forces the evolved really quick. Yeah. So if somebody is in student in what you're doing, find.

"Where you've been trying to get to and laugh. But after that dinner, I went and set my truck and I'm like, dude, what the hell are you doing? You are literally somebody else's retirement plan. And then I started looking back over everything I've done, and up to that point in my life, everything I did was because somebody else either asked me to do, or it was offered to me. And nowhere in my life, did I look at things and go, dude, this is what I want to be. This is what I want to do. So 15 days later, from that moment, I walked away from all and launched success champions. And let me tell you, brother, craziest ride, because within 24 hours of me saying, I'm launching success champions. I had attorneys on my farm with non compete papers. I literally started a company that I plan to do sales training and stuff, and I could not do the one thing I knew. I couldn't talk about sales, sales training, sales development. Sales management, anything in the sales game, I could not touch. No? I pivoted and started as a success coach. And that's how all this craziness started. All right, hold that thought. We're going to be right back. Every year the holidays come around, I think back to 2007 when I was in Iraq for the holiday season. I'd like to give you a big shout out to those you serve it away from your family this year. Know that we're all thinking of you.

So, Donnie, before the break, we're talking about you couldn't go into sales because you had the non compete with Sandler. So you had to pivot and become a success coach. What is the success coach? Jill, I gotta be honest with you, brother. I have no damn idea. But obviously, it's a business holder. And what I mean by that is dude, I just said yes to anything I could do to rub two nickels together. I mean, early on, man, I was building websites, doing content, freaking, trying to do marketing and trying to do some weird mindset coaching. I think success coach is that label that somebody puts on themselves when they have no clue what the hell they're actually doing. And I did that for about 6 months. And unfortunately, at the 6 month Mark, I stood in the back porch of my farm, looked at my wife and said babe, I'm about to lose. Everything we own. Because I had no idea how to be a business owner. And here's a crazy thing, Joe is growing up working for other people. I never saw the CEO as a company. Especially the bigger the company, the only time I saw him as a really large deal was coming through or merger and acquisition was going to happen. And that was the only time I saw the CEO. So I was like, I was building this business. Now granted, I couldn't do the sales training stuff that I knew. I was spent all my time on the back end learning how to do things. I learned how to create videos. I learned how to edit videos. I learned how to write blogs, books. I did all this stuff, and it was all this learning. And when I told my wife, we were about to lose everything. She looked at me and said, Donny, get off your ass and go sell something. And what I realized is because I always thought the CEOs were behind the scenes. I was doing behind the scenes stuff in my company, not doing the one thing I was good at. So I started selling and I was selling content packages and all kinds of crazy stuff to get things working to get some revenue come in. But I found podcasting in May of 2018 when I launched my first show. 5 months into that, it became number 22 in the world. And now I was sitting next to all the guys. I used to listen to GaryVee Tim Ferriss Tony Robbins. And then my non compete came up in September of 2018. So with now the momentum of the podcast, now I could talk about sales and sales training and I can start doing the things that was really, really good at flash forward to where we are now. And we have 6 companies two of the top podcasts in the world, four bestselling books and a partridge in a pear tree. No kidding. You know, being a sales guy is about as close as you can get to running your own business without actually being self employed when you're good. You know, it used to be at a 100% agree with you. I really thought being a sales guy that I understood would it be what it meant to run a company. I mean, you cut your own hours. You make much money as you want to. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I also would have told you when I was a sales guy that I outworked everybody. First one in last one to leave. Two things I absolutely know. One, being a sales guy, I had no comprehension of what it took to actually run a business. Two, being a sales guy, I was a lazy son of a gun. And here's why, running your own company, there's no more 7 days a week. There's no more 24 hours in the day. It's 100% go 100% of the time. You know, when your employee, you look for work life balance. Being an entrepreneur, there's no such thing as work life balance because this is your livelihood. If you work for somebody else, there's a drawl commissions, things that'll come in. There's always a place to go. Running your own business, there's nothing. So you're literally in a spot that everything is on you. And you learn really quick being an entrepreneur, what you're made of. Truly made of. Because I can promise you that nothing I have done in life is punch me harder in the face than trying to build a business. It is hard. Extremely hard. But if you can push through, it's a very rewarding on the back end. As long as you enjoy waking up every day, knowing you're going to get punched in the face, and you keep on going. Right. Yeah, I tell people, the only reason we find some sort of success running our own business is because we were too dumb to throw in the damn towel. Because logic would have told a lot of people along the way, myself included that dude, why the hell would you put yourself through this? Now looking back, I'm like, thank God I kept pushing, but it's really tough to build a business. Yeah, so early on, what were the primary pillars of.

"Your transition out of the Marine Corps was like. So got out in 99. My best friend and his old man had a heating and air conditioning company. So I came out really, really easy. And for anybody's track and 95 to 99, that was years we didn't do anything. I mean, there was no wars going on. It was after desert storm before Kosovo. So there was nothing. But I came out easy, easy transition, came right back to the family. So I didn't have the hardships that I don't understand, but I've seen a lot of people talk about how hard this transition doesn't have any of that. But I went straight into being a grunt for heating air conditioning companies. So I was a guy that literally crawled under houses up and addicts in Texas during the summer. Addicts would be a 140° fighter snakes, all the craps under the house. I didn't do that job long. So I remember the day that I tried to quit, I walked up and Jerry was the owner. I walked up and said, and as I'm walking to his house, he's on the backboard on the front porch and he's like, oh, I'm gonna quit face. I'm like, oh, you damn right, I'm done with this. He goes, hey, before you quit, try something for me. I said, okay, what am I trying? He goes, I'm gonna hand you a whole bunch of these brochures. Tomorrow I'm gonna drop you off in a neighborhood, and I want you to go knock on houses. He goes, and if somebody allows us to come in and we can do some work on their house, I'll pay you a commission off of whatever we sell. I said, so I don't have to climb an addict under houses. He goes, nope. I said, I'm in. He goes, but wait, you don't get any money unless we actually do some work in there and they pay me. I'm okay with that. I want the freaking climb when they're an addict and under houses. That's how I started my sales career. I got a question. My son, my nephew, both HVAC guys out in Phoenix. I was curious, when you went to all commission and basically selling HVAC service or systems, door to door. Can you go into a little bit of detail? What were your numbers or how long did you end up doing it before we went on this? The first week I didn't sell anything. And at that point, I had no money. I didn't have any income coming in. I couldn't hardly afford to do anything. And luckily, my buddy, his dad owned the company. So he would pick me up in the morning and then Jerry would drop me off at a neighborhood because I was the only sales guy for him. And when Jerry usually dropped me off, we'd plant a cooler of water somewhere in that neighborhood that I would go back during the day and find out water. Well, one day we forgot the cooler water. And so here I am knocking on doors, and it's a hundred plus degrees out, and I got no water. And I just keep striking out. Just keep striking out. Well, I finally get to about 7 to 8000 that day. And the gall opens the door. And when she opens a door, I put my hands up instantly and she goes, 'cause she's trying to slam the door. I miss it. Wait, hold on, hold on, I said, I'm so sorry. You're the first person who's answered the door. I forgot my cooler water today. Can I just get a glass of water? I'm so sorry. She goes, she goes full country mode. I mean, that point. She goes, oh, honey, I'm so sorry. Come on in, right? So she brings me into the house, and she's just been out at the table, gets me a glass of water. She goes, all right, well, you're in here, you might as well tell me what you were knocking on the door about. So I start telling her, just like a regular person, what I was doing, and she goes, oh, we'll call your boss. Have them come by. I don't think anything's wrong with their system, but you're in here cooling off. You might as well come on in, so Jerry came over came in. We did a couple little tiny maintenance things. It didn't need a whole lot of anything. And Jerry threw me a couple dollars commission for it. From then on outdoor, I had to pee a lot. Every house I went to, I'm like, hey, I'm sorry. I forgot my cooler wanted. And literally because I instantly became human, people treated me like a human and not a salesperson. So if your boys are listening to this, guys, go ask for a glass water is dumb as it sounds. It makes you freaking human. And once you become human, people will have real conversations. And don't have so many companies nowadays, teach your flip through your book crap where, you know, take them through the sale. Don't take them through any sort of sales process. Go in and have real conversations. Look at their stuff. And if you can help them help if you can't get out. But we grew that company just to help with the numbers. When I went to work for him, they were doing about a 182 $100,000 a year, by the time I left, we've moved into commercial heating and air conditioning. We're doing a little over. I think 2.22 $.3 million in sales. So I helped them transition that and about two and a half almost three years. So you stuck with them for another two and a half, three years after you quit in stone effect. Yeah. Well, let me say that. I was with them two and a half, three years altogether. So I probably, two years at most sold. Okay. Yeah. So that was the launch of your sales career. I wouldn't say, look, it was just ended up being the only thing I was good at. My brother had moved up to St. Louis, and so, you know, it was time to grow up, so I got an opportunity to go to St. Louis. Work for a Fortune 500 up there. In a really a marketing capacity, but was still in the sales role. And I did that for three years, and then we were bought out by Cardinal Health. And when the corporate buyout happened, my position was pretty much deemed duplicatable. They already had the people. So I was pretty much corporate downsize as they call it because that was a politically correct way of saying you're fired back in the day. And came back home, bartended for a couple of years, met my wife, I was bartending. And probably the coolest moment in that portion of my life was when I met Elizabeth, we were trying to settle down, you know, grow up a little bit. I'm like, okay, I got to go back and get a big boy job again. I'm going to get out of this bartending crap. So my wife and I, when I was in bartending at the big nightclubs, I was waiting tables that have been addressed. And I changed all my night shifts at bennigan's to the day shift and took over the bar area of the restaurant, figuring that I would meet more corporate executives that way and hopefully I could get into a conversation with one and somebody would pick me up. Well, sure as I'll get out, gal by the name of Jane Miranda happened to go to a big conference in Pennsylvania. And one of the keynote speakers said his best sales guy was his way to read his restaurant and she said, as soon as she heard that, she came gunning for me because they knew my story. They knew what everything that I had done up to that point. And so literally I was hired out from behind the bar to go sell commercial printing because this new digital printing had just came to the marketplace and nobody in her company wanted to sell it. So I sold commercial printing for 6 and a half, almost 7 years, and Sandler training came gun in for me and my last career of working for other people was saying the trainer was supposedly I became one of the top sales trainers in the country. And picked up partner in that firm, all the sandlers are franchises. So in my franchise I picked a partner. And one fateful night, I went from working for other people to then running my own empire now. So I'm running my own companies. It's been a pretty wicked pretty wicked ride. And then you thought you were going to do Sandler for a long time, but then something at the very end happened with your boss? Yeah, for sure. So my business partner doing Sandler is a hell of a dude. I still love the death. But we went out to dinner to celebrate everything that we'd built and done. And we were just starting to talk about the buyout. We knew it was going to be a multi-million dollar buyout, probably 5 year process to completely buy him out of the system. And during that dinner, he looked at me and said, Donnie, thank God you're my retirement plan. Now, he said it out of love, man. He truly did, not took it out of love. I mean, as soon as he said it, man, I told him, God, I love working for us. It's been awesome. I love building everything we've built together. And I love the fact that I get an opportunity to help you.

"donnie" Discussed on The Nerd Soup Podcast
"Good very good for the most part I think you think they've gotten better right for you. You like three. The most i do. I think they've been pretty consistent and they are just great movies and it's kind of like what mission impossible. It's like what we're gonna get another one but they just keep getting better and or at least as good so it's like we can't really complain until they actually jumped the shark or they make a bad movie so if they're gonna keep it rolling and may building a cast like this. I think that's something i can. Add a different element into it and make it make it fresh right And that's a franchise out. I think it's hard to jump the shark because it is inherently just ridiculous. It's not fast and furious stealing computer chips to address. The world. possibility is not out of the question right. So it's i think it's consistent knows what it is. In terms of a franchise and to cast greek. I i thought the halle berry was a great casting. And i think she that character fit right into the franchise so if you keep implementing things like that into this franchise then. I think it's something where you give them the benefit and the benefit of the doubt until they prove that they prove you. Wrong so yeah. I'm excited what. I want from the donnie yen casting is that he is firmly on the side of john wick. I don't want any. I thought common was going to be that character where he was going to help john. Whitmore more like halle berry and par-three even though she was kind of a reluctant partner. That was my favorite part of the movie. But if it's john wick. And i hope they just call him donnie yen and donnie yen back to back going against the high table assisted by laurence fishburne words Bird king guy. Whoever he is and to me it's just so funny. How each movie is just the same movie but slightly bigger. It always ends with john wick killing a bunch of people and that the end. He's he's betrayed by someone else and he's just gotta do. Can you just brought right back in So i hope part for the same exact way john wick seems like he's gonna be behind it all in maybe. Yeah yeah i. I hope that they're just friends. Because there's nothing like a bromance especially in this universe. You just wanting to be named danny do like that one. Tv show or movie. The characters name is their name real life. It depends it depends if it just fits the story. Some of story with the character is kinda like a nameless character so they just give it. The actor's name because the character doesn't the names not that important times it does bother me. If the if the actors two well-known gets to a point where like the rock should just played the rock and every movie he doesn't that is calling him his character names like i said gun to your head. Tell me who he played in baywatch or the tower movie. I can't even remember the the name of the fucking movie. Yes i never call it skyscraper. I always call it. The tower movie always hobbs. Or shaw fifty fifty. Chance gun to your head. Show so donnie yen playing donnie yen and john wick. Part for and like you said a franchise. Why do they keep getting better. Gave part three a back..

When we talk about trans people's contribution to the marriage equality fight a lot of times narrative with trans women into things that we have put ourselves not ourselves through but the things that we have gone through in regards to marriage rights and setting precedents in marriage rights and or bringing it. Even the question to courts are stories have been erased when we talk about robina and when we talk about Was the black girl named lucy. Henderson hicks lenders. Loosey goosey loosey hicks henderson.

And this is before you know before you know marriage. Equality happened this is a case where transparency was bucking up against the system and trying to get their marriage validated setting precedent and then go onto arrogance and so on its own. It's so many of these kinds of stories around the country that were happening that when it was time to bring them to the floor when we were actually fighting for marriage equality you know.

Yeah we wanna now and we see the proper waiting now but one of the key major reasons why muff because are invested in passing it for safety as you say and so we don't have to deal with the day to day shade of the world when i go out my door. Am i going get bottles thrown at me. Am i gonna get laughed at him. I going to get pointed at. Am i gonna get Have these issues that come with being Visibly trance. There are issues. That comes with being invisibly. Trans there is an issue with i seen this girl. I came into this store and this girl was in their trans girl and she was minding her business and these ladies was by iraq. We were looking at the. It was marshall's and we were. We were by iraq and these ladies literally just from observing her. They started treating her differently by treating her not wanting to go up and talk to her. not wanting. This is workers in the store not wanting to go up to talk to her asking her questions. All dry you can just because you came up to them and ask them a question and when they clocked they were given very da da. They were given very not anything direct. Like uh. that's a man but you can tell it was. It was a giggle pass between the two. It was not in her face but the cage. Yeah it was very and then as a observer that wasn't clocked in the moment. I see how they were like. Oh lord you know very the whole way you are. I mean from people somebody being in a restaurant and you get clocked in the restaurant. And your waiter doesn't come and serve you to the to the highest potential of great customer service. Because we're not.

If we're passing. Well the reason why. I so like i put so much emphasis on it because you for my brothers and sister. How much disdain. They have a people who wanna be passable. They make you seem as though you're in them. They make you seem as though you wanna be you wanting to be passable. A is disrespecting coal people who choose not to live in the binary in general.

We all need to be buying ever offered to do not to now beachfront them. I mean simone know forget forget what people think in in their narratives. I want you to do but this is i. Don't ask specifically don't want run the world and fight everybody. I kinda wanna do what he'd be. And i'm bringing bringing it back to the conversation about dining mclaughlin.

I am doing what i'm doing and living in this live where i i'm just going to be celebrated in the charge doing my thing because i don't want to deal with the homosexuals are dealing with out in the world. I'm just i'm just gonna. Would you accept it would you not. And it's not that we we don't have or having to put no into but i'm saying like would that be understandable acceptable response. 'cause i'm not seeing the tenderness the tenderness that my heart just felt for you talking about your transition. I can't say that i have that. Same tenderness for donnie clark. If he said it which i think ultimately is what he's saying he's saying i don't wanna deal this san. I don't like it. Not not not. I don't like it. He's saying this is my sin.

There's all the facts basically if you just spend like an hour reading it's like it's like a whole 'nother movie like it just puts all this stuff into context doesn't director's cut so it's like you have to watch the the theatrical haven't of interest in it to want to watch complaining and then have enough interest like actually invest time in finding like guy and then on top of that do outside research research but like you said each time it does become a different movie because it's like we were saying before when you explain it to somebody on the surface of what is it about well. It's about a body who saves a guy and then he kind of folks up a school in a way and then he destroys the world and dies. Basically that's actually why. oh dude. What if the school is like a metaphor for like regular society. In like how you you go through school in your Compartmentalized into like this. One role amina student in like one way to learn and one way to think like he's the only one that's different. Yeah and like his parents recognize it. Just like donnie. If they if they say that you're weird you tell me maybe think of it but yeah no i mean that's a definitely a one way to see because yeah he is different and he's not accepted by anybody pretty much at the school. Besides gretchen. who also is a little different in her situation there but that kind of goes with the what i'm saying earlier about how the lenses you can just look at this movie through so many lenses and one just right off the bat like classic lens to look at a movie through his the feminist lens and jake..
