You conduct your workshops in the modality of delivering workshops as a pivot but as a pivot to what they need to do to be effective with their teams. Yeah or that's multi-layered question there. Yeah let me see what i can do so the last year and a half since before the pandemic it actually has been one giant pivot for mia professionally and personally so i was in a school system.

"Upper house of russia's parliament the federation council is not known for its stout defence of constitutional democracy from the ambitions of an overreaching executive even by those standards however the latest measure.

Possibly not coincidentally moves are already afoot to designate as extremist the anti corruption foundation or fb k. Of imprisoned descended alexey. Navalny von joined with more on this by stephen deal. Russia analyst and regular monocle twenty four contributor. Stephen alert listeners. May already have guessed the answer to this question.

"dumas" Discussed on Your Personal Brand

"One. I thought i'd do a little how to grow your business one. Oh one and to do that. I want to talk about john. Lee dumas houses. Most recent book called the common path to uncommon success. I have to admit that. I haven't read any of jail books as he's called and i'll probably refer to him quite often that way. Just to to shorten the john lee dumas. I haven't read any of his books. But one of my mentors vincent puglisi. He has been immensity of jail for quite a while. So it was interesting to me to listen to this audio book a couple times and to hear a lot of the same types of things and sometimes the very same things that i hear from vincent on a consistent basis so to me this book really aligns with a lot of what i'm already trying to do and i've found to be very valuable over the last few years as i have built my personal brand photography business so i wanted to share that with you just to give you some ideas. This is essentially seventeen steps. Seventeen chapters long. But it's very valuable. And i think it can give anyone a very clear roadmap of where they're trying to get to. And so if you're pursuing financial freedom and fulfillment in what you do. I think john lee dumas is. Common path is a really good outline in framework of how you should be building your business. So i just want him to walk through the common path. Give you some of my thoughts. On what i took out of it as well because i think this can benefit you. Just start with the very first episode. Identify your big idea and jail de mentions that this should really be a mix of genuine passions and expertise just pursuing. Your passion can be risky because you have to have some expertise but the main thing to keep in mind as you have to enjoy it to stick with it. Sometimes it does take a little while to truly achieve true success. After you have your idea then you have to figure out your niche and ideally. This should be an under served niche that you can then come in and serve them the best you can now. My niche starts with personal brand photography and quite often. That's enough people are like. Oh i've never even heard of a personal brand photographer and this is even among photographers at times. But one of the key things that i heard in here and he's obviously been saying this for years. Because i've heard something very similar from vincent is that maybe you can combine three things right because the idea here is that when you discover your niche you want to become the best. And you're not gonna be the next oprah the next richard branson most likely but if you can be the best at this one very specific niche that you serve you. You're going to do well. So the idea of combining three things maybe if you can be the top twenty five percent in each of those then that makes you the best person does the one thing jail d uses the idea of podcasting now. He got into podcasting years after got started but he started focusing on being the only daily interview show for entrepreneurs and so as he started combining podcasting entrepreneurs daily then.

"These soldiers. Sir i just recommitted to myself that. If i didn't make it home that i was never going to live a life. That was less than i was capable of living and no matter what courage it took to to take a left turn or a writer to to get out of whatever muck yourself into. I was going to do that. And you know. I see a lot of people who have experienced that kind of life trauma and haven't made that kind of life pledge to four fallen soldiers they just get stuck what i call the sunk cost fallacy. You know they do a semester of law school. They have to be a lawyer for life now even though they hated it from day one you know. They went to nursing school now. They have to be a nurse for the rest of their lives even though they realize they're just now schlepping bedpans everywhere and they're super unhappy. Working twelve hour shifts from nine pm to nine. Am you know and for the foreseeable future and they just had the sunk cost fallacy. Like that's how it always has to bay and guess what there are unbelievably happy lawyers. They're unbelievably happy nurses and fill in the blank for every other career path. You can have but there's also a truckload of miserable people out there that are just doing what they're doing every single day because they don't have the courage to say you know what today's a new day. Today's afresh day. They don't have the realization that the sunk cost fallacy of whatever they've invested time energy money. It doesn't matter what matters is what are you gonna do the rest of your life starting today. And so i had a couple of those moments where you know. I was in law school. I was in corporate finance. I was in commercial real estate partnership. Track that i had to dig deep and go to that moment and go to that courage in myself out of a path that never should have been on because we all make mistakes for human beings and like i made plenty of mistakes after my military career and i was able to continue to course correct because of that. Pledge that i made. Until i finally found the right course which took six years but i was able to do it. Where did that wisdom come from. Because that's not even something many people in the military even have that wisdom to recognize that you came home so that you like in with your friend and come home so you could come home and be the best dad you can be. But that's not a common knowledge so worded that wisdom coming to you because it was like an inspiration that moment or is there commander razor a life event to kind of lead up to that moment of. They're not coming home. So it's i'm me to create something worthy of the sacrifice of what they don't get the live. It was an inspiration in the moment. But i did come from just being voracious reader and i was always a big time reader of biographies other of you know military men and women but just business men and women as well and so i read a lot of bucks you know. I myself throughout my teens. You know in my later years still today. i was just reading a fantastic book today about alexander. The great so like. I'm always learning. And you know. There's a lot of lot of wisdom in these books in these biographies. Marcus aurelius you know as stoic and talks a lot about this stuff as well and so it was just from the kind of cumulative knowledge of educating myself by reading books specifically biographies. You were doing things he didn't know how is all gonna fit together and then that one moment it was like three things and i love you mentioned like alexander great and the stoic because when you read those types of literature. There's two things that i've learned one. If you want. A new idea always go read something old. We're not working with new ideas. We're just working with old ideas and people forget them and the second is when you read some of those stoic. You forget that's three thousand years ago and a lot of their language is just like twenty twenty one and there are thinking some of the same things that we are. And that's almost part of the human condition that we forget that we we think everything is unique. But it's really not. We all have the same problem in many veterans. Get in that same like bucket where we're the only ones feeling this way and we tell ourselves that lie and we are afraid to admit that we're on the wrong path like you had to like. Maybe i'm not the only one like this. And then that's when you of started asking better questions it start getting better solutions and in your book. The common pat uncommon success. Is you mentioned that people often mentioned your discipline. The military is what led your success. I think it was this moment. Is what created this whole. Like the pressure to go out there and ask bigger questions because to me that legacy of what your rating and what you've created is that life that didn't get to come home. I mean the soldiers. That didn't come home. I mean that is exactly what you've gone out there done and you've created a life the life that they didn't get finish and to me. That is the message that i repeated my podcast more often than not. Because it's just what fathers need to know and as you know you're getting married soon here and you're getting ready to be a family like to me. The legacy of this podcast is legacy of our family. And the biggest thing that i've learned is that we often focus on the legacy of our service never switched the legacy of our family. Do you have any inspiration as you go forward and getting ready to get married and start a family of how this is going to continue from that promise. I think one thing that a lot of people do that is something that i can see myself doing from time to time. Is they time travel. You know they're always begrudging or you know bemoaning. The past finally stopped doing like i had the desk. Four years of college ever like it was just nothing but sign was the the really the best years of my life and a lot of ways. Sometimes i just find myself like kind of getting sad like they really missing those days and being like man like those were such amazing days. What am i doing like on time. Shopping pants and a lot of people do it for the future as well as like so stressed about the future. Like how am. I gonna make the next mortgage payment. How am i going to you know. Get the job. they're really want. How can overcome this health that you know it was just like we have these like time. Travel lomas were either always stressed and worried about the future. Or we're always like shabby moaning grudging the past but like not very often. Are we living in the present moment. That's something that. I continuously try for myself to do is live in that present moment. And that's why you know. Part of my daily routine you know keeps me in the present moment with meditating with journaling you know. I'm sitting in a sauna for thirty minutes a day. I'm in my coal plunge with three minutes. Which makes you pretty present for those three mets. I do about thirty seven breaths in those three minute. Every one of them feels like a minute long. So you're of present. You realize that man three minutes can actually be a really really long time so time travel next time you catch yourself stressed about the future. Just begrudging the past to say well let me look around for a second and let me be present in the moment and i'm not saying like never worry about the future because there's things you do have to worry about and you have to focus on but at the same time focus on the president like bear in the moment quote from tony robbins that i've been really trying to re wire in my life. Where when we if you've seen this is yours. And they get caught up in entrepreneurship. Trying figure it out that we've worked on being human doings and not human beings and that being part that veterans get hung up on because military is often more focused on doing than being. They don't really care what you be. They just worried about whether we accomplish mission. And it's that transition into the president of your kid's need your being your business even needs you to be. That is not about all the things you can do. It's like bringing more of the surface. And those i love what you talked about the morning routine. And there's a reason why you have somebody journals because those are ways to access some of those different perations is one of the very first things that i connected with you back in two thousand fifteen when you were doing your kickstarter campaign and those little things can have really big differences like what you're talking about with the cold water plunge because i've heard tony robbins. Say like he does the same thing as well. Just tell his head fu. I'm going to do this whether you're fear it or not every day and it just kind of gives it a reminder that i'm in control not my thoughts and all those little things is how we can make big changes as our life goes forward. Yeah because i do not want to do that copeland every day like the way that i was able to get to it was that i just ended up dropping five thousand dollars to get that puppy shipped out here and like now. It's in my pool room right ex- my gym every morning like i know it's there and i know it's only three minutes and i'm like am i really going to just waste by thousand dollars not utilized this thing. That's right there inside and do it and stock by. Yeah i feel like. I've only had it for about a week now but I went to brand new habit. Even fully seeing the john lee dumas sets relish from the benefits of cold water out and it also reminds me of coaching as well. We're almost when you invest highly and yourself. You're almost making a bet on yourself that you can't waste the investment that you did and it's about time to content or the people it's that bat and you made a five thousand dollar bet that this cold water plans day is going to help improve your life and there's no way you're gonna waste five thousand dollars on something ship to puerto rico and i see that until you around like you know what i'm not like i'm gonna show myself was boss on the box and like i don't wanna get into that cold coal town right now but like i'm getting into it and the irony that you have e oh fires your podcast and you spend three minutes every morning cooling off is probably a good like kick in the pants to the ego of like you are on fire. Sometimes when you're in your podcast and your groove but the here's a reality check you can still get cold and you can still go back into just got a breath for three minutes in cold. Water breeds that's on the heels of thirty minutes imprint sonner which i've been doing every day for years now so that's been like a constant part of marriage. Because i i find that the sonnet pretty easy to do her thirty minutes But i did build up to that. I will step out. Really look back to when i started like i could not do it now. I got some things. Where like i play sellers of catan like snap game on your own like while i'm in the sauna kind of like distract myself and i've got some great youtube videos playing the background of some health and wellness. Trying to like learn while. I'm you know getting getting my sweat on. I love it john. I know your time is valuable today. So i really appreciate you stopping. By the military veteran dad podcasts and dropping some wisdom and that story because legacy is so important in. I like to me. The hero in your journey is that moment. Where you put your hand on those coffins. And said i will create a life worthy of the gift that you gave me and every time i see what you're going out to just think about that moment and i think about i can still remember i was on. I forty three here in wisconsin. When i first heard that story in that keynote and that moment sparked a whole new thought of things going my head. So i knew that was a question i wanted to bring here today. So thank you for joining us. Benjamin that was awesome brother. Thank you thank you for listening. Today's episode. I hope that that episode and that story from john inspired a deeper sense of meeting of. What your servicemen to you. What everything that has happened in your life how it can be redefined an our mindset towards it can change everything that one story that one promise kept john bigger and better questions of was he living up to that commitment did he create a life that was worthy of the life that those didn't get to have and that commitment kept asking him to go higher and higher and higher to where he is day and he's impacting millions of people around the globe with his mission and to me that is the big takeaway that when we think about what we do in our life when we measured against the ones income home in iraq or afghanistan but i often think about all the dads. That didn't come home and to me the best way that i can honor the sacrifice that they gave by not coming home knowing. There's a kid out there that never gets the field father's love again. The best way that i can do that is to create something that this particular case of this podcast. It helps other dads come home to create that impact to make sure that we don't let those sacrifices go in vain and to me the best way to honor the ones that didn't come home is to be a good dad to come home. Love my family. Create the change. I wanted to see in the world and got my kids. Be that change and owning. That responsibility is how this story has impacted my life and all the different things. Launching my next podcast. The business of fatherhood. These things have been impacted by the measurement. Am i creating an impact that is equal to their sacrifice and with that. I'm signing off. Have an amazing week. I hope that this week brings you the energy the courage to go out there do bigger things and wherever you at in your life whatever you have going on no. You're not alone. I want you to remember that at the core if you ever need anything. Please reach out ben. Military veteran dad dot com always. Happy to talk always happy to have a conversation and help you get through. Whatever you're going through because this sharing the load as we talk about so often can be all what we really need.

"Are talking about. Why hair tons great. So who'd you talk to. I called dr jenna lester. She's a dermatologist. And professor in the department of dermatology at the university of california san francisco. Wait duma matala street hair as well you know. I didn't know that either review but yes it turns out that many dermatologists actually treat anything related to skin nails and hair and jen has been on the show before in an episode about how dermatology is evolving to better serve patients of color. I remember that it was a fantastic episode. Louis oh good. Okay so re too much like i did with you. I opened my conversation with jenna. And let's say a very professional manner This is a hard hitting and intrusive question but geno. You have gray hair. I do not have any grey hairs. Occasionally i'll find one and the most recent one that i found out not too long ago and interestingly too did not grow back in its place. Lucky her braid and what. My mom used to tell me when i was little and this is around. The time car heads started to ten grief. I she said if you have gray hair and it falls off or you pluck it out.

She told me that hair doesn't actually turn gray hough. Yes like if you have brown hair or blond hair on your head tomorrow. It's not going to be gray. It's the new hair that's coming in. That will either have pigment or not have pigment. i did not know that so. Once a hair starts grow it stays the same color.

"Wanna introduce you guys to selene gosling. Welcome hello and thank you for having me today. I've so appreciate you taking those. You guys don't know slim. A story architect author speaker for high-profile entrepreneurs one of the coolest things we're talking about here is really how the debris the soul into your business. Which is one of the fun things for me Especially as he really kind of dive into her expertise in working with entrepreneurs to help them get unstuck She helps her. Class breakthrough plateaus reprogram their minds for success. Most really share their most powerful story with world. They can become confident. Leaders with influence brands. International media coverage in thousands of raving fans. I think the part that. I'm most excited about though is slim loves adventure. She's traveling all over the world. And i think it's really again if she left the corporate america seen She lives her life on her own terms. I was just in puerto rico she. We're talking about visiting friends. John lee dumas. Who's on our podcast just recently. But i think the cool part for me. Selena is having the opportunity of stay time with you to really help. People really understand the difference between the public story and the private story. Yes dive into that anything else. You wanna say so they can get to know your local better not married to today everything that they need to know. It will come through in. Today's that's fantastic. Let's dive right into this. Yeah so if you don't mind. I think the most fascinated by is. I know that i've always kind of hidden my private story. The hardest thing for me is publishing on a regular basis. And i'm trying to do more and more that I think i've gotten better ads becoming much more vulnerable. But i think the problem. I see in a lot of the entrepreneurs that deal with is. It's that private story. It's that space between your ears. That really is preventing the for having success. They really want and most importantly really living the passion that dream they they talk a big story but they don't believe in themselves asset something you've experienced one hundred percent even as the end of the the funny but i would say the most interesting part is that it doesn't matter how successful you are so i worked with six seven eight nine figure enterpreneurs and matter because they keep telling in creating this magnificent story on the outside hiring brand experts like cr- the best copywriters in crafting something so that they can share in their work in their funnels in their websites. And then there's always this lack of coherence between what's being put on the outside and then what you just said which is a story that they're telling

Interview With Ibrahim Moustafa, Author Of 'Count'

"Today i am joined by ibrahim mustafa the writer and artist of graphic novel. Count which is coming out from humanoids as you're listening to this. I'm gonna try to release it. The episode right about the time that the graphic novel is officially available in stores Ever thanks so much for joining today. I really appreciate you taking the time or we're going to count as well as some of your other works before we You know in here. I wanted to talk to you about Like how how did the inspiration for this particular graphic novel. It's an interesting. I found an interesting adaptation. Because it's it's very much your own work. It's very much yours. Despite having you know it's not it's not a literal county monte cristo adaptation right like it's you doing your take your riff on that on the themes of that in the ideas in that story What was the inspiration for that. And did you want to reference that source material. Yeah well i i you know. It's i appreciate you making that distinction. Because i think it does kind of get lost in the translation of the the pr materials thus far like an adaptation so people might think well. This doesn't have anything to do with the so i. This guy's name is totally different right. Inspired by may have been like the better tagline. In retrospect but yeah. I just i'm a big fan of revenge stories. And kinda christo is kind of the granddaddy of them. All and i was just kind of in a head space. I guess thinking about different stories. I enjoy think john waco just come out. And i've loved watching that and and and then i just thought well you know. Wouldn't it be cool if this story. Which is you know in the public domain and everyone is aware of it on some level. I think culturally. What if this took place in a different setting and had action and the original novel is very soap operatic. There's not a lot of. I mean there's really i think there's a sword drawn in the whole book and it's a twelve hundred page book right so i'll just wild. Yeah you definitely expect to be more. Yeah and the two thousand two film adaptation of it with jim caviezel and guy pearce definitely added a couple of sword fights a little bit more accurate to it and action is a big thing that i enjoy in media and so i thought i would try to play to my what i feel are my strengthen and really inject some of that into the story so from there i just sat out to to start crafting a pitch document i did in between worked for higher stuff's i would kinda take some time in the evening or a weekend on the rare occasions that actually got those and Would start chipping away character designs and just kind of building it in my head and then once i was able to pitch it to humanoids and they said okay. We like this. We wanna see more before we give it a yes or no That gave me an opportunity to really. Just start kinda down. On the details of it. In really kind of hone it into what it became. Cool cool no. that makes a lot of sense You you've mentioned in. I've listened to some other years including the one you did on the humorless podcast with marc weighed in the team. There you mentioned Wishbone like the terror as a as a touch base. So those was because that's definitely was my introduction to a lot of classic literature as well. I think kind of my christos funny in that regard in that. I like you said i think everyone has familiarity with it. But the percentage of people that maybe have actually read the alexandre dumas is probably pretty low. I know in my case definitely was like it was one that i actually impact for this interview. I was like like check out the audiobook. Like listen to it on a few runs. I've never even though. I feel like another story. I've never actually experienced it. Which would geographic than i didn't have. I didn't have the burden or those expectations of you know somebody who's like. Oh it. does this do the original justice. which is freeing i think. Potentially you know it's it's interesting because there are a lot of adaptations that we don't even realize adaptations of it right Old boy is kinda count of monte cristo. Style at guys put in a prison. Eventually escapes takes event right right. It's it's been done in various mediums. I think in ways that really transform it And i and i was actually thinking about it. It would be interesting to see what would have happened if we didn't say anything about the kind of monte cristo You know and just kind of put it out there to see people. But i felt like because i was paying a mosh to a lot of it and i was really taking the broad strokes of the original. It would have been like this kind of microsoft like so. It was necessary to kind of put that out there. That's what it was

"You didn't use to believe that leads to jim jones or the ant hill gang right when it was some room right says they they know it all. That's what that leads to you got be. You can do that right right for real. And then the more people want answers. Though people want assurance they want stability and so if they don't have that and they're not okay with the idea that they could be wrong. They're gonna find these people who are convinced that they're correct and they're gonna follow him and that causes a polarization. You know the people who that's creates an us and them a scenario where you know if you are aligned with this thing that we're calling the truth than great in everybody else's the enemy instead of instead of saying you know. I really don't know i'm seeking the truth but i could be wrong about this or that or the other thing instead. You say oh. I finally found it in here. It is and nobody else can be right. And now you've created a an us and them in an enemy and somebody who's who's right sure and It's it's very problematic but it's definitely happening right now. All over the damn country it's happening. It is very dangerous. it isn't it stops. The complete discourse that two people could have that have two opposing ideas where they sit down and actually talk about it and they're open to like you're saying well maybe there's a better idea here. I'm wrong this and it's if you're wrong. Well i mean that's okay i mean it's not life or death if you're right you are wrong and proven otherwise it doesn't you know we're probably that way on this podcast half the time. We're okay with that right but if someone wants to talk about it it doesn't hurt our and we'll just talk about it and we'll move on. We're happy to do that. And that's the problem that i have so much with all of this censorship and the idea that That social media has to be the arbiter of truth on everything they have to come out and say well. This is obviously been debunked in. So we're going to shut it down because in order. To debunk something. You have to be able to see the other side you can't you. Can't debunk something without looking at the other side. But when they're censoring everything. You can't do that and so you got somebody coming out there saying well. This is truth. And they're not even giving option to look at the other side. You see that in the in the vaccine debates you see that in the covid the debates where they're they're basically saying well all of these people who believe these other things will. They're just they're just wrong they're crazy they're they're making stuff up they're dangerous and And and that's it's problematic. It is going down a path that is going to be hard to come back from right. I agree yeah unfortunate. That's why you have to tune in to this podcast starting to turn into some kind of commercial thing because we have the truth. Who like that question everything but not a question everyone else. Change the logo question everything. But that's our new logo folks. I'm going to switch that. I mean super good discussions. If you guys have comments on this please innocent email. I mean there's there's all kinds of ways to get hold of this and we would love to have your information and what you think about what you think about all this because it's pertinent. It's happening right now and it's mental warfare but we get get thousands people listening to us. We know you're out there so don't hide go out there and tell us what it is that you wanna that you wanna tell us get on and In let us know your questions. Let us know your thoughts. We want to hear what you're saying. It like i say if you want to remain anonymous. that's fine we will honor that request. We don't mind at all but communications the key here so we want to hear from you. I guess that's it anything else. I don't i don't i would just say thank you for listening this week. We are now heard in over twenty eight countries. We really can't say how thankful we are for our listeners. We do love our listeners..

"True. I mean i mean don't they haven't they for all of history done this. This is not a new thing that people are doing and so to say something as a conspiracy theory doesn't to me. I mean that it's wrong. It could be right but good. Journalism is is looking at both sides of a story and When they're not doing that when they're only looking at one story to me that's just not it's even good journalism and so it just creates questions in it creates opportunities for these conspiracy theories to pop up and i think that You know that that repetition safe enough times to become true that's That's a big thing going on right now. At least in in our media But you know along with. That is disinformation in. And i think that's how did they continue to push the narrative that conspiracy theorists are crazy is because there's so much garbage out there you know people are grabbing onto anything. Maybe sounds like it could be true and some of these stories really are pretty far out but they could be true. That could be possibly and so people start kind of thinking. Oh yeah this is probably true. I can't trust the median. So they start going down this rabbit hole of shit information and pretty soon. They're believing things that are way way out there. And it's like all of a sudden. Somebody's like gotcha sucker right. You're stupid. I can't believe you believed in any of this. And so then the people who were doubting as they should have doubted the official narrative feel foolish. And they're like I'm not gonna do that again right. So what does that do. It just creates an opportunity for people to manipulate the narrative again. Because the more times they catch you and make you feel stupid for believing a false narrative. The more that they're able to go and set whatever narrative that they want. And nobody's gonna question it because nobody want us to be the idiot that where's the tin foil hat right. Nobody wants to be that guy and so they don't want to question those narratives so even though nobody trusts anything. I can't question it. You can't because i think gas. I'm glad you brought gas lighting up because i think almost all boils down to that because it's purely basically like psychological warfare and part of gas. Lighting is the people who are gas letting their goal is to make you question. Everything and i think human human nature is to look at people that are are in in power or you know like our senators or our boss. You know anyone that has a position of that is due to that person that that will help us feel more for more stable. We looked to those people to give direction but gas lighters completely up route this and make us question everything which confuses people which weakens people and if a person's week the they're going to believe anything they yes they want to glommed onto some sense of stability some sense of truth who right and they have they all started of things. That are not even. You're you're not even guilty of like. I don't wanna go to political here right but let's say that's okay trump for example right hi. Let's just take the quote unquote insurrection. Part yes where trump said. Let's go march Peacefully patriotically down to that. Whatever right. that's what he said. Everyone's accusing him of starting insurrection. getting these people to storm the castle stormed the capital. That's what they did now. Part of what. The gas ladders do is they accuse is doesn't work for trump but anyone else that might have they. Would they accuse him of starting insurrection. You did this you did this. You did this over and over and over where that person starts defending themselves. And that's all they do is defend themselves and was distracted from the gas lighters behavior. They they use constantly accusing you of something. That really isn't true. So you defend yourself. That's all you're focused on defending yourself and not really what the gaslight is trying to do so almost like a distraction. Exactly yeah cowboy say. It's it's a mental warfare. There's gas lighting is is a really super deep subject. That people need to understand that. No one really understands. Yeah it is very. It's very deep. It's like You know if you're a witness to an accident and you saw what you saw and then all of a sudden somebody comes and says that's not at all what happened. Here's what happened then all of a sudden. You're kinda of like wait a minute. This guy is very confident about what he's saying and he's saying what i saw isn't what i saw and so it puts that question in your mind. How confident am i in what i saw. Well dammit. I know what i saw what he's saying he's saying it's not true. And he's saying it authoritarian so authoritatively and and So it makes you question. Did i really see what. I thought that i saw right but i think along with what you said. With like the trump thing. I think it's very important to To talk about false flags. False flag operations are Goes back to the day when military's used to put flags You know maybe go into battle with flag or put a flag on their their airplanes. Whatever they still do that so somebody might Attack maybe their own country with the flag of an enemy. So you know. Maybe if they're trying to start a war between russia and the united states they might put an american flag on on a an mr on on a on a different countries plane and flight into russia and trump a bomb and that's a bad example because technology would probably tell them you know who it was but you know. Let's just say that technology parts not not an issue here. So the russian see the american flag on the on the plane and they're like oh well that's an act of war. Well it is an act of war but you know who started it. Maybe it was somebody in russia who was invested in weapons makers and wanted the business that the war would create between russia and the united states and and so they start a a war. That's probably again a bad example. Because maybe maybe like russia georgia or some smaller country. You know that.

"Somebody who has seen something unusual out there would be interested to hear your story on it absolutely. Yeah get in touch with us for sure you can do all that on our website at different take dot com met. We definitely think that there's In all of these Touristy conspiracy theories there's always the element of if you have a good conspiracy theory that will bring people to your tourist destination. That's a good thing and so you know other a like if there was no haunting story about duma speech you would probably be less of a tourist destination than if there was a haunting story. You know so. Maybe you know an all of these things. Maybe there's an element of let's create a story so that we can get people out there You know on the other hand. Maybe maybe not. Maybe it legitimately is something That happened to if you people and and that's a legitimate story being told again we're we're we're definitely curious if you have Seen something if you've heard something you know what's been your experience with it. Yes no in contact with us. We'd love to talk to you about it. Well are an earlier episode. We talked about conspiracies. Several episodes back and most of our topic seem to have had at least some element of a conspiracy to it. So we're going to try to wrap up the conversation a little bit and talk a bit about how those things seem to be happening in real time as we speak right yet definitely definitely i think one of the one of the greatest One of the greatest fodders The the greatest fuel for conspiracy theories is some stuff. That's going on right now where nobody can trust the damn thing that the media is saying right like when i hear the media's telling story now my immediate reaction is I wonder if that's true. Because you're you're full. You hear so many lies now in the media that you don't ever know what to believe as truth anymore so when you don't know what to believe is truth everything is just kinda like Will this story sounds interesting. Maybe there's something to it and even if there's nothing to it is just kinda like Maybe there is though and so you start to talk to talk to other people about it. And if other people tend to believe like using now all of a sudden you gotta conspiracy theory going right and and so i think that that That's a huge thing. That's going on right now as people all across the world have started to kinda wake up to the idea that maybe we're not being told all of the truth and And i think you know for a lot of people in america in that conspiracy. Theories were like all. Yeah you're nutcase if you believe that until this last year in twenty twenty where i had so many friends come to me say look. You've been talking about conspiracy theories all these years. I you were crazy. But now i kinda am right there with you. I might even be more of a conspiracy theorist than you really welcome aboard but go ahead. It's becoming like we said before it's can becoming more mainstream now to what one party just plano conspiracy theories yes. We're every once you said. And really i think honestly if you're gonna do good journalism you have to look at both sides of story and it seems like that's the one thing that's definitely missing today. Is you know the press comes up with a story him vats the truth. Maybe somebody in washington dc or somebody in power somewhere says this is the story. Line that you're gonna tell everybody anything else is a conspiracy theory in the you're going to treat it as such and so it really doesn't make any difference whether the story telling is true or not. They've basically squelched any opposition to it and that in and of itself creates doubts and conspiracy theories when you tell somebody you cannot argue with this narrative that we're telling than all of a sudden people bunch Why why can't i argue with it. Is there something wrong with it and so it just creates that in Said to me it's creates a lack of trust when you tell people you can't question or when they try to question you know all of a sudden now they start gas. Lighting you gas laying one of those things that you know. It's big deal and conspiracy theories circles but not necessarily everybody knows what that is but Gas lighting is. You didn't really see what you thought you saw or you don't really know what you think you know in the so people tell you over and over again That you you're wrong about something and here's the proof that you're wrong in. The proof may not be proof at all but it sounds authoritative enough and they say it often enough that you begin to question whether or not you actually know what you think you will. So gas leading seems to be one of the things that they're definitely doing in real time right now. In repetition is another thing. There were legitimate issues with this last election as far as You know in the us as to whether there was fraud in there now whether or not you believe that there's fraud is irrelevant. They were telling us over and over again that the things that were seen as fraud. We're not it. Just move onto the next year. Conspiracy theorist if you believe this. There's nothing to see here. There's there's there's nothing to go on here and don't even look at it. They said it over and over and over again to the point where people who were legitimately questioning it were immediately. Shut down by. oh well. that's just a conspiracy theory. Okay well maybe it is. Does that mean as false right the conspiracy theories been into a pejorative. Where if if it's conspiracy theory well it's crazy. We'll wait a minute. Don't people actually conspire to lie about things.

"The people like. I've lived here for thirty years and i've never seen anything or hurting these rumors other than reading it online. I i did not see any type of pictures that shows any type of apparition or any type of you know if i was going to say if this is true or debunked. I'm leaning more along the lines of its debunked in it's not haunted based upon the local saying they go there all the time and there's no issues so when when you told me you were talking about duma speech i pulled up on youtube a few things on duma speech and unfortunately i don't speak hindi so a lot of things because it's an india On youtube were in hindi. So you know. I couldn't really little you could. You could watch the stuff but if you don't speak indie then you can't really understand what they're saying you but there were a couple of them that were in english and Was some thing that some of the folklore stories on there and it seemed kind of kind of far out Somebody else put a picture of what appeared to be a shadowy ghost. Figure which okay. Yeah you can see those pretty much anywhere. The necessarily mean that it's haunted per se but one of them. I thought was really funny. It was some guy in his car who had a dash cam. And he's like. Oh my god look. There is a woman. There's a ghost and it was literally a woman walking on the road and he was so convinced. This was a ghost that. I don't think he was even cognizant of the fact that it literally could just be a chick walking right right. I mean so you know if you're in the mindset of hey this this is This is a haunted place will. Then you're probably going to believe that it's a haunted place. And if not and i tend to believe that there's probably ghosts just about everywhere so maybe everywhere is haunted or or nowhere. It's i don't know it depends. It's all based upon. I think a lot of it is your pre preconceived notions before you even get into it. Because i've seen a couple of videos as well because there are so many ghost hunters out there. Now they're all over the place and there's good ones and there's bad ones and a couple that i've watched. What really bad is they go into a house. You guarantee there's nothing there but they're they're screaming and yelling at everything around every corner and there's really nothing there just for views you know there and there's there's nothing there which can't me upset because i mean that's not what you're there for and if you're out there you know what i'm talking about. Yeah everybody's out there trying to trying to make a name for themselves and you know. I think there's legit there's legitimate things that you wanna focus on if you're in that but you're not always gonna see those things when you're out there you know doing your ghost hunting and so you don't wanna take the time that you've invested in and basically going back to that geraldo rivera thing. We talked about a few episodes bag where you know her. All those like we've found the al capone's millions and so they spent three hours on network. Tv drilling through a bunch of stuff and found absolutely nothing the whole time right. And so if you're one of those gauche hunters the you're you know you've you've invested some money and some time into finding some ghosts and you don't find him and so now you're like well hell what are we gonna do. How are we gonna get our money back from this and so all of a sudden now. You're like screaming things that aren't there and and trying to trying to make it look like you found a bunch of stuff that you didn't find so that's disingenuous and it's unfortunate that not every time that you're looking for something that you're gonna find it but that doesn't discredit the many people who legitimately do see things when they are out a lot of times. They're not necessarily looking for them when they find him. Yeah yeah there's some really good deal centers out there that you know they got some really good video and audio on things that really make you wonder right right. We appreciate their hard work. Yeah no i. I definitely I'm a believer that. There's something i don't have any idea what ghosts are. You know religious background. That i grew up in they were they were. I was told they were demons or something like that. I don't think that is the case any longer. I don't think they're demons maybe they are. I don't know. But i don't think so but i don't know what they are. They definitely seem to have characteristics of people. Not all the characteristics of people right. He say you can't necessarily conjure up or you can't really tell where they're going to be or why or or what or how. I don't know it's weird. It isn't a lot of time. Say a lot of time but they sometimes they seem ambivalent they're just hanging out and then they just disappear in not really there to hurt anyone or anything like that just hanging out right right and that was the thing to me that made me think that all that religion that i'd grown up with said they were demons Probably tells me that's not the case because some some i know many people who have reportedly seen ghosts in some of them say yeah. It's legitimately frightening experience but many of them were like no didn't scare me at all. I don't you know they've just kinda grown accustomed to seeing these apparitions and there's nothing frightening about maybe they'll turn the lights on and off or you know maybe he'll parade around the house or something like that but is not particularly frightening so To me i think it would. If it was demonic thing there would be an element of fear involved in it and there is not always. Let's hold different subject. We can even delve deeper in another podcast shop. So yeah yeah definitely me. Get our Marketing department story to download. All right. got they're gonna take care of it for us. Yeah marketing department. They're in the room with me here are they now. Okay yeah so duma speech where were where were so. I'm sure there's probably some people that saw some things on there so we'll not will not discredit you. But hey if you happen to be in india if you've been wrought and you have been the duma speech Would be definitely curious to hear whether or not You have seen anything unusual or if.

I've actually thought that in my mind other than Kind of weird and then he just go on. But i've learned to pay attention to what my what. I'm what i'm telling myself if that makes no. Yeah yeah so. Where do you remember where you had. Those feelings was smaller town out. East colorado by lamar. I can't remember the name of it. But i was within a with a company where we deliver roofing shingles stuff like that. It was more of a older ran down. You know little town but you pull in there and you're right it's just like a like a heavy feeling about the city then even a city like a little town something just in feel right but you don't know what it is and you don't see anything that's out of sorts of other then it's really ran down and you're like how are people living here but yes you ever find out any any reason why you would felt that as you get into history the town but i probably should have but at point you know. We finished our job. And i drove often. I've never thought about it again. Knowing what i know now and it would be a whole different ballgame. So you've had experience. Yeah yeah. I'm many many times. But i i gotta say one of the places that that happens to me a lot. When i go back to the city that i was born in in colorado pueblo has a very heavy notice to it. When i go back there. It's almost like it's like a like an oppression when you go into that area I can't explain it any other way than using that word oppression Just feels very very heavy And another place. I felt that was when i went down to It was almost like You know the the voodoo stuff that they have down there Was it was a very kind of a dark. I mean it was dark literally outside. It was dark. But the feeling that i got driving through. That area was very dark. Was like there was a there was a heavy spirit over it. And i couldn't i couldn't explain it other than i did not want to stop until i left that area Did not want to get out of my vehicle and get gas or anything and it was just just kind of like the like the spirit of hanalei. We got somebody down louisiana who would argue with me and say now years making stuff up but That is. That is how i felt when i was down in southern louisiana. No it wasn't like that up in northern louisiana. You know when. I was up in the street board area. I didn't feel that at all up there. When i got down towards norrland's Yeah it was it was it was like that So yeah interesting stuff. Like i've started to pay attention to that and try to figure out why it is that i'm feeling what i'm feeling but don't always know right was louisiana worse than pueblo different It was not the same kind of spirit like like. I felt implode almost like a like a like something was pushing people down. How do i how do you explain. Head like Like there was a like. There was a thumb on people who are trying to stand up like that thumb was pushing them back down. It was like a hopelessness poverty. Spirit how do i. I don't even know really how else to say the net but down in In southern louisiana more like a spiritual like a like a new thing you know kinda like there was a heaviness spirit in the air they was like kind of dark trying to maybe come maybe harm people idle and wouldn't wasn't everywhere. He was just final places down there. Yes we're that is where. But i think it's important like you said to learn what you're feeling and not ignore it. I just thought here's what it is you later. I'm out but we do have listeners. Actually in pueblo. I'm sure so. If you guys feel the same thing please let us know. Like i would definitely be interested in hearing if i'm alone in that because i always did feel kinda like that even when i lived there but when i have left in when i come back it's it's even more noticeable to me now than it ever was when i when i lived there before. So yeah curious If you happen to be in pueblo pan in you hear this Curious to see if If you have felt similar things and you know. Feel free to call me out on. Tell me i'm wrong. I'm i'm willing to hear that true if if you agree. I'm interested in hearing that too. Yeah absolutely back on. Do miss beach. Sorry about that. No no you're good. A segues are are the best actually so several tumorous and locals. They've gone missing. The man was found dead on the beach in his tongue was like popping out of his mouth and no one could find a reason for it. Gross right people claim to have heared word sound coming from the beach like laughing. Maybe couple of people crying. Even when they don't think anyone on the beach people have witnessed white apparitions and orbs. It can't be explained after some further investigation. And i didn't actually talk to. You wanna live there. But i found a lot of people on line that live there that talk about this speech and pretty much. Every person said they have never heard any of this stuff about the beach right. pretty much. say it's not haunted. One guy did say that if you people like to go there and drink so if they go in there and they get drunk and like i said the ocean seems to be a long ways away sometime. If you keep walking the sand gets extremely muddy where you can sync up to your knees actually in the mud and get stuck now out there too. There's there's bird slang around. There's there's not trees or anything like that but there's branches and stuff that are making noises. Hey if you're if you're stuck in the sand and you're out there drunk and you're starting to worry because you start looking around all these noises and everything pregnant make you seeing that. It's probably hunted. It's not you just back up. Get out of the mud and you go home..

"dumas" Discussed on Our Different Take

"You Know it's It's quite the city up near amarillo. In the panhandle us let this is not This is not that so do. Do tell what what happened in do miss india quite far from that in fact so this place. It's called doom beach in india and this place is famous for being in the top. Thirty five hunt haunted spots in india. So where it's located thirteen miles south west of the city of surat and it's a pretty popular tourist destination. Actually it's pretty close to the coastal town of gujarat which is said to be haunted to actually have gujarat isn't that where Gandhi was from. I have no idea. Honestly how i could be wrong about that. I think i think that was. Gandhi was born though to be so. Let's not far from there so it's during the days just like a regular beach so a lot of people walk there. They play there. They take vacation there. Hang out all the time there. I've seen different pictures of it where the beach at some point is gets tremendously muddy and the water depending on the tide is way way out there otherwise if the tides in it looks like a normal beach that you would find in florida or wherever wherever and people are just playing in and having a good time as soon as it gets dark you people are gone. They are gone even at times. There's policemen that patrol area to make sure everyone leaves because they say it's so haunted serious The police encouraged people to leave. Because it's haunted. Yes wow yeah they they ride around on little four wheelers and they're like you know what we gotta get you out of here and i that on a couple of different videos. I've seen where. I've people are trying to stay there overnight to try to witness something and they tell him to leave when it gets dark when the sun goes down so they some people have tried to stay there overnight and the rumors are some people never come back or they've had worse experiences to share the net worse than ever coming back. We think if you disappear then you're probably not then you're probably okay but if you come back and both your legs or chopped off that's probably the worst experience than never coming back. Now wait a minute. People have come back with their loved like shopped off. Well no i. I was just an example. That was a prime example. Is gonna say man that would suck at lock. You can't come back if your legs are chopped off. What are you gonna do. I sounds like something monty python movie. There what are you gonna do bleed on me. So that's the only thing i think of would be worse than not coming back would be half your body missing. Yeah yeah that would suck. Yeah maybe rip out your intestines. Only that'd be worse to been. We could probably go down this path. Of what would be worse than death and we could probably come up with quite a few things you know having good having your intestines you know disemboweled slowly and yeah i. There's lots of things. I guess that would be. I i take it back. There are things worse than death. Okay i was. I was incorrect. Olive oil comes with. Yeah okay. that's disgusting okay. So why the heck with this beach behind it anyway. I mean seriously. Why would it behind it well. The answer to that is at one time as beach apparently was used as a burial ground. The some of the sand on beaches. It's not like straight black. But there's like black specks mixed in and some people think that the black sand is because of the ash created by burning the dead which got mixed in with the white sand and kinda turned it dark. So that's why they think it's hunted and it's still possessed by several spirits. That never left the beach. They're still hanging out at the beach. They want wanna go anywhere so it's probably not because of volcanic sand or anything like that. It's it's definitely because dead people. Well some people also say it's because the the iron content in the beaches so high that's why there is a black in the beach is because the iron content and not necessarily because of the amount of people that were burned. they're creating large of ash. I guess you could probably go in there with a magnet and if the black sand sticks to a magnet then you could probably determined that it's not a dead person maybe it's just the content of iron in the sand right but if we did that them what would happen. All the haunted stories. So let's go a little bit. And i'll tell you a couple of different things high so people that when i read reviews of the beach and different ways where i was trying to research people say that surroundings are really beautiful. But at the same time when you're pulling up to the beach it's depressing and there's an eerie negative feeling about the place and these comments come from tourists not the people that live there so they have you ever been somewhere where you dislike us. Pull into the town. Maybe you've never been there before. Maybe have been there and he'd been he'd been gone. We come away and you just pull in and without even really knowing why you're like dude.

"I'd like to hear from you. Why did you decide to get into podcasting. You know it started podcasting in two thousand thirteen where we started a podcast called gun. Nurdin me and a guy named jeremy and basically we started it so we could talk about things. We'd like to talk about you. Know and put it out there and see if someone gets entertained by the goofiness that we portrayed at the time and did they. Yeah actually at one point there was. We were in a news article saying one of the best ten new nerd podcasts. That were out there. Wow yeah really the magazine. Maybe it was a ten year old typing up in his basement. I says that's the beauty of the internet isn't it. I mean anybody. Can anybody can publish something on. Anybody can can have a forum for something so right. Yeah you don't know who's right me up right and i think that's what that led to like for me and you is. We have a forum or we could have fun hopefully entertained. Some people talk about things. We'd like to talk about and there's not really like a whole lot of regulation where the boss we talk about what we want to. Yes and we enjoy it You know. I like. I've always been a fan of audio and audio equipment and editing and voiceovers and it is just kind of smooth transition into the podcast And it's and it works really well with with you and i and the subjects we pick our. That's i think that's why we did. The title are different. Take it doesn't have as just talk about only the paranormal right but we can talk about the paranormal. We can talk about conspiracies. We can talk. We can talk about the gamut of things because it's our take about what's going on. Where whatever we decide to talk about. So i enjoy that to be open and not pegged into just one subject only right right for me. It was just a kind of a progression from used to. I used to blog quite a bit and Had had a number of people from from different countries Who were who were in to reading my blog and participating in it was really pretty amazed at with the internet. You've got a voice and you've got to reach way outside of your geographic area. Also you get to meet people whom you never would have met otherwise The internet to me and my blog was away to open my mind to people of different cultures. People of different religions races All kinds of things and it was just fascinating to me to learn more about different people hand of where they lived. What made them special. What made them who they were and Just to it's kind of a discovery process. And when i stopped blogging kinda kinda morphed into facebook and you know the the blogs turned from these fairly lengthy blogs into you know what would facebook blogs or short little a couple of paragraphs kind of things But then facebook kind of started doing their stuff. Were they start kinda sensor in you and telling you they don't like this content or that content and and then with the polarization at least of america. i'm sure it's probably everywhere but at least in america You gotta a left right paradigm that that typically if you tend to post more on one side or the other than the other side just leaves you anyway so you really end up just kind of echo chamber. You know you're saying whatever you're saying than everybody everybody is either agreeing with you. Nodding their head or ignoring you or completely vitriolic Just attacking you and that's just not not all that interesting to me So when i approached me and said hey you wanna be a part of this podcast in. We can talk about things that are interesting to you to me was just an extension of blogging in a whole different audience. And like you said the regulation at least today is not. it's not real severe. There's some things. Obviously we have to kind of watch. What we say You you can't. You can't joke about certain things that you would love to joke about but For the most part you have a free rein. Free speech is is still here and you can kinda talk about things that you know her on your mind in I think that's that's a fascinating thing. I think it's fun and it's it's nice to able to have a conversation and have people people are interesting and when you get to actually hear people talk from their heart I think it's interesting. And that's what this podcast is to me is a couple of guys just Talking about what's on their mind and heart in And hopefully it's interesting to people out there and and what's cool too. Is you make acquaintances and friends with people all over the world that you normally wouldn't definitely and i think that's huge. I i love that. Yeah yeah me too me too just just like the blog you get to meet people like we got a whole lot of listeners In india and i think that's just awesome I i love I love that. We have listeners. In india i i used to Actually had a tim's ler Hindi language learning cds. You know i i. I was trying to learn that. I didn't get too far into it but Might one of my bucket list goals was to be able to go to india and just come suck up the culture and And see what it's like over there. It's a it's a fascinating place and you know sued. You just get to you. Get to see these things you get to talk to these people and now To me it's fascinating love it. I agree i agree. I love it too. Hope that comes across to our listeners as well because we love you guys too. Yeah for real all right. Let's get into it here so we've got. First thing we're gonna talk about is dumas beach. Do you ever heard of Beach before i had not of course living in texas there's a city in texas called dumas's or as we here in texas affectionately refer to it as a dumb ass but there before.

I'm all about origami. Anybody wants to make me like a little pelican or something. I'm down with it. It'll be in february. Have a paper anniversary. That's horrible if you make it your first year of being married you should get more than paper. Maybe that's like Like a marriage certificate paper billy. You're so poor. Usually the first year he married. You know you're like i don't have any money for anything. I'm sorry here. here's paper. Oh you love me. So much is a card stock now. That's the second year. Oh yes our business cards. Or whatever after that. Well digress here a little bit. Well we put out a question to our listeners on our facebook group od nation. If you're not on there you need to be and also our instagram channel on our different taken. If you're not on there you really need to be on there because we have a lot of cool stuff going on there. It's a happen in place over on the grammar and it is a happening place we have. We need ten more people to follow us before we get the five hundred followers which is pretty awesome followers. I guess real the question i asked was. Do you have a question to ask us. Personal business related. Whatever and we will. I said most likely answer. It probably answer it unless there was some kind of crazy question that we would not want to answer on the air but we we had to questions submitted. So we'll answer those real quick before we get started all right looking forward to what are they are. The first question was from our facebook group. Od t nation and the person that asked this will anonymous. But they asked and this is for you. My friends got okay. Yes why is scott so incredibly handsome that an angel smile on him when he was born. Oh wow the floor is yours. My friend man. I wish i had a a great answer for that. Because that that is a question that burns in my head sometimes It's amazing that it's not just me that it burns in though it is apparently burning and other people as well. Why am i so incredibly handsome and did an angel smile on me when i was born must have been maybe a whole chorus of them. Heard of angels hurt. Is that what you call a bunch of angels. A herd of angels heard or a gaggle a gaggle google flock of angels. Yeah that sounds better. Because they ran they ran so far away. I don't know anyway. So i i don't know.

Where will Your Next Dive Be?

"It's time for another installment of your next dive here on scuba shack radio so far i have done eleven installments of this segment. Typically i do in new your next dive segment every third show or about every six weeks. I take a dive location or operator and talk a little bit more about the diving. The operator the boats the facilities and the food. I also like to discuss how best to get there. Well today. i thought i do a little bit. Something different maybe. That's because i'm not sure i have anymore. Cool places to talk about that. I've been to so. I'm going to imagine that we're in a post pandemic world and i could just pick some place to go diving jump on a plane and giant stride. In where would i go. where would you go well. I'm going to keep this in the context of the places. I've talked about here on your next dive in boy. Did i have a hard time trying to figure it out. But in the end if i could fly out today and go diving i would definitely had grand cayman and then head over to sunset house. There are so many other options to choose. I chose sunset house for a number of reasons. First getting down there from where i live in. Connecticut is pretty easy. And while i have to make a connection. It's no big deal and if you're lucky with the scheduled flights you might even be able to sneak in and afternoon shore dive. The the sure diving is definitely a big reason. I like sunset house. You can dive on the house reef anytime and it is outstanding house. We've you can explore for hours and find some really cool stuff boat diving takes you. Some fantastic spots and win diving is over. I love spending time at my bar for lunch or dinner. I can visualize myself right there right now. Having an iron show bach after a great day of diving boy. I gotta get there now. If i had a lot of time like say i was retired or like say later this year i would ski. Give serious consideration towards heading out to the philippines and then heading south to do magaji. Where'd stay with atlantis. Everything about the resort in a diving hits mark from me. The biodiversity is incredible. You get the reese with four hundred and fifty different species of coral and the mock where you can watch stuff closely. As as the sand comes alive it's outstanding. The rooms are very nice and spacious and the food is really good really good. The resort is right on the beach and a very relaxing environment. I would have to say that. It is one if not the best value in diving if i couldn't get into sunset house on grand cayman or have the time to make the long trek out to the philippines to other options. Come to mind. And they're a little bit different. I would consider either going to turks and caicos to dive dive provo or had two little came in and spend a week at little cayman beach. Resort going to turks and caicos on providential. He's just like flying to the bahamas pretty straightforward. But it's not as much diving as you would get on a little cayman. Typically you'll get five days of two tank boat diving but you'll have time to go to a number of really cool restaurants and there's that nice supermarket that's right across the street from where we stay. Then you get time to relax by the pool or the beach going to little cayman involves that short flight in a twin otter from grand cayman which sometimes presents a challenge but once at the resort get ready to dive in eat. You'll probably do six days of two tank morning dives with five days of one tank afternoon dies. That's totaling seventeen is a week or seventy percent more diving. Then you would get in turks and caicos and while you won't experience the different restaurants. You won't be disappointed in the food plan on adding a few pounds during the week. So this is quite a dilemma. That will face when we're able to and we're able to travel again and we feel comfortable with it. There are so many options out there. I know we're still trying to set up a memorial day trip to nassau with stuart cove and keeping our fingers crossed. We all have our favorite places to go diving our goto spots and we all have the places on our list of places we want to get to. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to diving some really cool places and love to go back to all them. That sounds like a goal. But if i had to choose my top four spots right now they would be sunset house on grand cayman atlanta's dive resorts and duma gatty dive provo on turks and caicos and little cayman beach resort out the passport.

"Hurdle friend on those of leadership. Welcome to the show. I'm so excited to be here. You know we know each other almost eight years. Did you knew that. I was looking at the calendar. Almost eight years. I was thinking about that. Yeah because it was like right after. I left gaylord hotels. It's crazy and i was like in watching. Your journey has just been amazing. It's been so fun to watch and just remember back in the day back in two thousand thirteen right when we that kind of we met through a Kind of. I guess it was a facebook. Entrepreneurial group that john lee dumas mastermind e type thing in there. Was me you anthony tran. There's about eight of us that kind of clicked together right and we kind of started sharon and in the paul. Good for me anna. And we're still good. We're still connected all those people they all come to nashville. They see me. Yeah austin netflix. Austin yeah yeah. He's still going and Oh gosh i could go on go on yellen selwyn. Yeah killing it and arizona. Yeah i remember. I met with him. Gathering owen and somebody else in phoenix. Oh the guy He did aaron. Pierre use aaron pierce curson in owen and owen had just moved to phoenix. He'd moved from new york and he moved to phoenix and was in phoenix. Mo- behind in new york s right and then we all had lunch and met paul. I was had lunch with paul somewhere. I tried to hook up with you a national lane and it didn't work. You were going something. I was nashville. And you and your husband were going somewhere. Gosh dang that's just so fun to see that here we are. And i've never had on the show i've been wanting to. I've been a big fan. Because you're i think of all the people that were there. You were the closest to what i was doing in terms of thought beliefs on leadership and entrepreneurship. And i love your story so we're reminiscent of all these people were talking and it was like. What are these people talking about. What did they see it. Like for the four pull out for the audience. Like i can't even of all the times. I've called you or you like i remember standing in the middle of academy sports like in the adidas section. Because i'm told you re run dmc that way like you calling me and like running an idea by me and and so you should. The audience were sitting here talking about this person. This person and we're having our little memory lane trip but the best part of that is that we have a crew of people that are similar in our values who've been on a similar journey for a similar amount of time. yes we'd all be at different levels and where we've gotten in that amount of time but we can lean on each other in that strong people environment almost like a. You know your own board if you will as entrepreneurship can only especially how we do it. And that's really important. Like it's really important that i can call you. I know you have a mortgage and children and like grown-up responsibilities. At i can call you and you can share perspective with me as a business owner with the same responsibilities and help me in context make wise decisions. That is a great point to do what you say. Maybe a lot of people that listen to show or no listen to show never really talked about that but the importance i've talked about with guests on the show the importance of finding an inner circle or your tribe or your mentors if you will in the people that we've talking about here and the people listen haven't really seen it but i have leaned on all of you guys over the last eight years for exactly what you said right like ham doing this. I'm struggling with this. What do you think and never really thought about that too. You said that. Like how many times i have reached out to all eight of you during the during these eight eight years i think it's it's invaluable right in its requirement for leadership in for entrepreneurship. Insurers like you've got you can't do it by yourself now you've got to have. We don't have another office to pop into a departmental meeting like you would in a corporate office where you bounce ideas like. We don't have a white board room. Like i haven't and you know said you have to figure out how to recreate that team or that perspective The way that you'd hand how

I'm sure his the yeltsin when he stepped down on the thirty first seven nine hundred ninety nine the one thing he'd been looking for in that second term since he's been president since the middle of ninety was someone who would guarantee him immunity from not only him in fact his his blood family and also his wider political family immunity from prosecution for the rest of their lives and the very first decree of then acting president vladimir putin on the last day of ninety thousand nine when he took over as acting president was to grant yeltsin and his coterie fact that immunity and on one thing. We're surprised that this hasn't been done before. But if you think back much closer to to where we are now this year of course we were talking about putin being being able to be president for the rest of his life because of course they changed the constitution earlier this year in russia and it means that the is white cane he can stand again for president in two thousand and twenty four and then if he wants to he can stand again in twenty thirty. They've overturned the previous idea. That president couldn't have more than two consecutive terms. But what this does. I think this is even more significant than and giving him that. Johnston president for life. It means that truly fall ill or something then. This means that he can. He can step down and not be prosecuted at the moment. The russian president compu- prosecuted while he's in office but until this is passed he can be prosecuted if he if he were down. Well it's really interesting statement. I guess it's sort of fun to speculate in a way. What appeals to vladimir putin most is it to just stay in office To sort of become superannuated president be there for decades as it will turn out or is he more concerned about protecting as you said his nearest and dearest and in the immediate coterie from from what we understand and we know about him. What do you think is most appealing to him. In the here and now is the consolidation. Is that endurance that longevity or do you think he'll be drawn to just melting away into the shadows. The shadows putin is someone who doesn't really have friends. He doesn't really trust anyone. That's his whole background as a street ladd in petersburg when he was growing up and even more so when he was kgb officer and so what he feels is that he he can never be sure he always reminded of sort of you know to broussais. And julius caesar and and that that to me is where putin stands that. He's always afraid that someone were to step down. Someone might change things and then drawing prosecute him and there's a number of things that they might want to prosecute for most not be now if we thinking well it's got to be after he's president. What does the state of the russian economy at rome. It's pretty awful. There are some very few at the top who are just unbelievably wealthy. Russia has nine thousand nine billionaires in the country at a time when thirty eight percents of the country at least according to official fingers are living below the poverty line. Russia is still very much dependent on oil and gas. And it's very interesting today. We have the news. That britain is saying no more petrol cars with diesel cars from twenty thirty. You know the world is going away from those fossil fuels and russia's not really doing anything about it and rushing. Business is is is not in a good position and so you know you could say one of his worst legs could be the state of the economy if you want to choose to step down but if this is passed in the duma has has given it its nods so far it has to go to the federation council. The house and then ironically putin himself would have to sign it off which. I have no doubt he would do. I mean i just wonder what do Russian pro democracy activists Putin's opponents have to say about the sorts of moves. Stephen because presumably there would be appetite in certain limited quarters to say look. We can't have a situation where people are protected in perpetuity from their alleged misdeeds. Particularly if it's a question of. I don't know following the money this sort of thing. Do you think that there will be a a counter. Lobby is ernie president to being able to sell it. We can review these These rulings down down the track or is that just a nonstarter. Right now is a non-starter. The doom is heavily stacked with putin supporters. Then indeed the federation council houses to. There's being talk over the is of of election. Rigging putin generally has a lot of popular support out in the country not so much in moscow some of the other big cities but those who are in power now would definitely know passes laura have no doubt it will become more and because what putin were he say to foil in five years time and so having been reelected in twenty four finally can't carry on steps down if this law is not in place then what frightens him is the idea. Is that in fact with. He's the hub of the wheel and he's taken out. Then we'll spokes collapse will then a real opposition which does exist. but it's very small and sat on very hard when it raises his voice. That actually stopped means something in which case could be a threat of prosecution. So he's he's trying to cover every base. I think it's very interesting that this is come on top of the idea that he could serve the rest of his life. This gives him the get out. I'm not well or on board. I want to step down. But i can still be secure. Won't be prosecuted prompts. The question stephen wh what does any eventual succession. Like i appreciate this. Very very speculative and it could be twenty four. It could be twenty thirty indeed but do we have any better sense of what putin's own Mission is you know he. He wouldn't want to melt into the shadows of you as you suggested but is there any hints of sort of you know a dynastic succession or do you think he's more interested in in the here and now i wonder if we can speculate even about what happens after he takes his hand from the tiller right now to be honest tom. I wouldn't want to name a name. Because i have no doubt that he will stand again. Twenty twenty four. So we're looking ten years since two twenty thirty two elections after that and because he can't stand again if he's still in good health and he's generally a fit man he's you know he's still does his judo and he's sixty eight years old now. But as we've seen in america being in your late seventies doesn't preclude you from standing for president so if he carries on fit. Well no reason why in twenty thirty he wouldn't stand again so you know. There's a whole generation of politicians would come up behind him. Then they may be the ones that maybe twenty thirty six fact we may be looking at three. Fold as a israel change. I'm if there is a change. Before that i can't really see it happening if health matters. Don't intervene before two thousand thirty so really as standing where we are now looking ahead. Ten years that famous phrase in brisbane week is a long time in politics. Ten years off it on.

7 Laws of Podcasting

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm the orbital and today we are going to be talking about the seven laws of podcasting. So Neil that I've been podcasting for about been four years now a little over four years for marketing longer if you think about your growth everywhere yeah. Longer will leveling off for for seven years on that one. So it's been a long time. So seven years. For seven laws. Right. But I guess I'll kick it off I. so before I could get off meal and I did it no this podcast was going to go and we've realized that we caught onto a trend that is still taking off right now and podcasting is just going to get bigger and bigger last year the number was about seven hundred, thousand podcast in the world has probably got a lot bigger since. Then, and there's a lot of advertising dollars going into podcasting Joe, Rogan's podcast. They did a deal as spotify for over one hundred, million dollars. So it's just going to continue to be good times. It's a nice medium for people and you know the first law will say about podcasting is you know you've got to be consistent and share story around that my leveling up podcast for the first year only nine dollars. A day off of their first year after second year only thirty downloads a day, and then from there, it started compound, and then that led to that podcast is still there and now we have the mark podcast but we've been very consistent with it on the same lesson that goes over to if you're doing youtube if you're doing blogging if you're doing any type of content at all, it just it just consistency. Number two, you need half quantity the more quantity you have the more episodes you have the more listens yoga time it really does stacking compound. So don't just think that you're GONNA do well, even if you're consistent and you're pretty senior episodes every quarter or even weekly, you're not gonNA do as well as if you just did a daily with people like us John Lee Dumas, there's quite a few players who just Do daily a is more work, but you get the listens in the Dallas away quicker if you just quit way more quantity number three. So if you look at the Joe Rogan's of the world when he does video podcast, it actually gets chopped up into a lot of different pieces. So we've often talked about Omni channel and hasn't changed air if you do a video podcast like we're doing right now and you. Can make a bunch of different pieces. One sixty minute long form interview can become six mini pieces and you can put it onto youtube. You can put onto podcast whilst now you have thirteen pieces right there and then you can make little micro content for social. There's just a lot that you can do chopping things up and you can use a service like repurpose house dot io, the adding Babbit two, hundred, fifty. Dollars a month find on a five, hundred, dollar a month plan. Eventually, you can have your own team, do it for you, but that's a good way to get started with repurposing number four. You GotTa do Keyword Research. It doesn't matter what you end up talking about. If you don't have the right keywords with the title of your podcast and your descriptions, you won't get as many listens in Dallas. So Do Keyword Research. Number five seems like a dust and but still a lot of people fail in this. I, remember back in the day I was using Blue Yeti microphone and the problem with that one was I plugged it into my USB port. What you should be doing is you should be using a mixer so both nearly have a mixer read one called focus right and you can use focus right and then we both have higher pr forty microphones and so these are high quality microphones route four, hundred dollars from the Mike and the mixer. I believes anywhere from one hundred, one, hundred, fifty dollars or so you don't need a start with anything crazy but. If, you're going to be using a blue Yeti, which one hundred dollars still make sure you have a mixer because you sound a lot better and a very important thing is the quality of your sound 'cause when Neil I used to record next each other when we first started this ambiguous when we had to turn off the air conditioner, it would get really hot but also more importantly, it was really echoey and done a terrible because we're right next to each other and people said, oh you guys sound like you're recording from the bathroom Blah Blah Blah and we started getting bad rating from it it just it's not a good user experience. Number six aspirations. If you don't ask for ratings, you won't climb the charts and you won't get as many new listeners and downloads. So at the end of each podcast, there's nothing wrong with asking for ratings. Yeah and on top of that, if you're GONNA ask for the ratings, we haven't done the best job of this incentivizing people to put a rating. You'll probably get a lot more exotic just neil haven't done a good job about it number. Seven, you gotTa know your numbers. You can use look at the apple podcasts analytics look at spotify analytics as we look at where retention is and you can see retention will tell you what episode you should be doing more of. So for example, what we do episodes Seo retention might be ninety, five percent but if we start talking about how we like to plant tomatoes than our retention might be forty percent or so so it might not do as. Well, the other thing too is when we use chargeable chart able, that's how you spell it. They will show you your thirty day performance or your seven day performance for new content that you have coming out. So now I've been looking at them like, oh, well, people really latch on what we talk about certain things and they just they totally get disinterested when we talk about other things such as I don't know whether I'm just making things up. So, use chargeable has a lot of different features. It's probably the most complete podcast analytics tool out there were not affiliated and we just use the free version, but she's been really good for us.

Navalny’s team sees Kremlin behind attack

"Activists in. Russia. Say They will not be silenced despise the apparent poisoning, their most prominence leader Alexey navalny he collapsed after drinking a cup of tea an airport cafe while campaigning in Siberia. If he was poisoned, it's the latest in a series of attacks on Kremlin critics. Journalists both inside and outside the country and European leaders are threatening a robust response. Our Moscow correspondent Lucy Taylor reports at the budget logger staying. Agents ability. To Christ his four million Youtube followers Alexei navalny has the loudest voice speaking out against the Kremlin Russia. Deborah wound. He exposes corruption and embezzlement and rallies crowds of young protesters in Russia's cities another newsletter rob discussed they didn't really. In this video a few weeks ago he tells them to believe in themselves and the power to change the country. But for now, at least that voice is silent. Nevada. Collapsed screaming on a plane and Siberia. His team immediately blamed a cup of tea. He drank in an airport cafe. The only thing he had to eat drink that day you. Russian doctors in the city of oems said, there was no trace of toxins move in. I can say for sure oxo Bates and barbiturates of not being found the research is going on, but those agents not in Nevada his body. This was the chief doctor, the hospital Alexander Murkowski. Already, working diagnoses. The main one we leaned towards most his carbohydrate balanced disorder meaning metabolic disorder. It might have been caused by a rapid drop of blood sugar in a plane which caused him to pass out. Novon. These family insisted he was airlifted to Germany to doctors. They trusted to be independent, and by contrast the team Berlin Scherzer's hospital say that's s syndicate that he was poisoned. They say they found evidence if Colin stays inhibitors which affect the nervous system and could cause long-term deal. The German government has kept Navalny unto tight. Watch. This is the Foreign Minister Heiko Mas. Differ. Suspicion is not that Mr Navalny poisoned himself, but there's someone poisoned misdemeanor felony and there are unfortunately one or two examples of such poisonings in recent. Russian. History it was clear that after his arrival security measures had to be put into place, we are dealing with the patient to likely the targets of a poison attack. So the pressure is building on Russia to investigate what happened. The Kremlin says, it's offended by claims of a cover up and says, there's no need for an investigation until it's conclusively proven poison was involved but analysts abroad say the case follows a pattern of attacks on critics including the Salisbury poisoning of the former spy, Sergei scruple in twenty. I share ran gap from the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs Gail University. The fact that this may be poisoning. This is a part of a pattern that the Russian government has engaged and you all know this just from the nerve Asian. That was used in this cripple poisoning, other Russian spies, both in Britain and elsewhere been poisoned. It's a really that's not something that one that is a common way of attacking someone so I think there's sort of a signature here that suggests that this is a Russian government, probably a GRU intelligence operation. The Russian government denies any involvement in Alexei navalny illness saying the accusations can't be taken seriously and it denies that there is any trend of attacks on anti-government figures. Russia's State Duma is looking into whether they're foreign links to the attack on. Novelli. But his friends say is the third time that he's been poisoned in Russia. This is his friends surgery of it is very important to remember. It's not the first attack on Nevada using chemical agents. He was attacked in two thousand seventeen. The video cameras actually identify the man who executed the attack. This man was not investigated interrogated or prosecuted. The second time was attacked last summer. When he was detained in. Moscow. Prison and was actually administered within the prison within the prison cell. So it was also very easy to investigate. It was not investigated as well. which kind of tells you how the Kremlin treats people who Tacna Botany Moose Women Somewhere Bolshoi. Kremlin says it doesn't want Nevada illness to damage ties with Western countries. Assist supporters prepare to fight regional elections without navalny. The case could have wider geopolitical consequences. The United States said it would endorse the European Union led investigation and German Chancellor Angela Merkel said those responsible should be held to account. See. Taylor d-w Moscow.

"Where our interview originally got interrupted, and so you're going to hear that. Just ignore that and just focus on the content because you're absolutely going to love it so without further ado. Here's John Lee Dumas. John Lee Dumas Man. Thank you for jumping on the Scott. Ross show I am fired up to have you, sir, I'm a big Fan of your show been listened to it for a long time. Just really really honored to have you. Thanks for coming on well, brother. I am fired up to be here. I love the purple theme behind. You wish you had told me I would. Would have warn my purple earrings all right. Nice well. Let's dive right in John Lee because You know one thing that I've always wanted to ask you. You have talked more entrepreneurs than any human I know, and clearly there's gotta be some takeaways from that I mean what is it that makes a great entrepreneur, or what have you derived from all those interviews three rethinks? Successful entrepreneurs are productive. They are disciplined and they're focused by productive. I don't just mean that. They produce any kind of contents. Busy they're productive, but the productive doing the wrong thing, so they're going a million miles an hour in the wrong direction, which means they're going to be a million miles in the wrong direction where successful entrepreneurs produce the right contents, which is solutions to their audiences, biggest struggles, and then they're disciplined every single morning they wake up and they have a plan of action that they are a disciple to, and then focused my favorite word focus follow one course until success. They're not doing ten different things. They're the best one laser focused area. They're not going one mile wide in one inch deep. They're going one inch wide in a mile deep, becoming best in show. Love now something that you know you talk about a lot is mentor. And you just talk about what you've found in terms of the importance of mentorship. And how do you find the mentors for your life? Key thing when it comes to finding mentors is the following phrase. Your perfect mentor. Who is currently where you want to be, and now that sounds simple and obvious, but sadly so few people actually follow that phrase follow that structure, and they're like well. If I only have like Richard, Branson be my mentor or mark. Cuban but like if you WANNA like run an airline or open a record store. Maybe those guys who'd be good mentors for you, but who is somebody who is right now where? Where you want to be in life in for me back in twenty twelve and I was looking for my mentor. I was looking for a successful business podcast host, so I found a successful business podcast hosts. I hired her. She was about one year ahead of me in guess what she was able to guide me through the process because she had currently been down the path that I was about to embark upon. I mean I see that a lot I mean people want to. They're like well. You know like you said if mark, Cuban, my mentor, well I'm hosed. You know if John Lee Dumas can't be my personal mentor and I'm just curious. Because I'm sure you could ask this a lot. I get asked all the time and I'm I always love to hear people's answer. People asked me Scott will you. Be My mentor. What do you tell people when? When people reach out to you that are just like you said. They're so far back down the path. There's a hundred other people that be better mentors for them well. I am very honest, and I say I no longer mentor anybody one on one however I do have a list of individuals who I've personally mentor in the past who are great coaches in love to make an introduction for you and you can have free fifteen minutes no. Questions asked no strings attached conversation. These individuals in you know be off to the races. If that makes sense for you so i. do feel like no matter what stage you are in your life and business. Making the ask is always a great thing to do. Because even if that person ends up not being the right fit for reasons that you know could be plentiful. There's a very strong potentialities they could guide you or make a warm introduction in the right area, so forcing favors bullets make the ask dry forward now. Something that I know you talk about a lot is finding. You're calling and obviously being passionate about what you do. You kind of stumbled upon podcasting I. Guess I mean you were on. Your on long commute all the time, so you're listening to podcasting, and you know kind of discovered that it was a thing and that changed your life I mean. What do you recommend for people who they know? They're frustrated where they are. They're in a nine to five. They feel stuck, but they don't really feel. There's this obvious blinking. Light of that's my calling. Listen, I, stumbled upon podcasting. Absolutely, I was just desperately looking for content that was looking for inspiration I was looking for motivation. I was looking for structure. I was looking for a lot of things and my advice. Specifically to your question, those individuals is listen. Life is a buffet. It is a buffet of a splendor of difference, dishes and appetizers and main courses. Desserts in you need to be trying everything because into you go all in and actually take something actually put it in your mouth in actually experience what that is. You're not gonNA know if you like it, love it hate. It's are disgusted by so you need to be looking at life as opportunities test and try things. gophersports Take Action Fortune favors the bold dive in..

"Michelle while I don't know like people get the Tim Ferriss show because they've been obsessed with Tim Ferriss for now eleven years ever since he launched into the four hour workweek like bass why that show works. But like launching the John Lee Dumas Show in two thousand twelve hundred words but watching entrepreneurs on fire promising daily interviews with successful entrepreneurs that are on fire that work. Because that's ask people were looking for and they were looking for other entrepreneurs their stories their interviews. And that's why shows have very clear Solutions to people's problems in the title in the name name get discover ability. Also just like you're scanning like you mentioned like people could apple podcasts or spotify and the looking top rankings and show title will catch the ride by that show titled Promises the Solution Looking for. They're much more likely going to go at now. I will give an additional practical piece of advice. On top of all of this is so many people say John. I've watched shelf podcasts. How do I grow my listenership and I look at them and I say how many how many times have you been a guest on other relevant categories Pacific podcast over the past three months? It'll be like don't have time like I've been on like one or two but I mean like I'm focusing so much on my own show Joe and it's like listen podcast listeners. Listen to podcasts. And the average podcast listener listens to seven podcasts. So so you need to spend your time. And that's going to seven per week nesper weeks to spend your time going to a place like apple podcasts. Let's say you have a a fitness podcasts. Good Apple podcasts. Click on the health category. Look at the top. Two hundred podcasts. That are there. And then you need to be contacting the host of those shows with a very specific call to action saying something along the lines of a Sean as you have a great podcast called the model hell show the last ten episodes. You rocked it. They were about X Y and Z. I have a fitness podcast. I specialize in this topic. You've covered a while. I would love to come on your show and share share this specific topics covered in a long time with your audience. Here's a proposed title. His a couple proposed bullet points. I'd love to be on your show. Oh by the way Sean. I'm the podcast hosts as well so number one might make sense. You come on my show to share your genius with my audience and number two. I'm a podcast host so it makes it so I understand the importance of that when my show goes live on your on your on your podcast. I'M GONNA promote the crap out of it to my entire audience. Because I want is many people's listed as possible like you make fifty of those pitches that will be the best pitches any of those hosts have ever received. And you're going to be able to now line up against spot on all of these podcasts that have listeners a built in audience. That already have a podcast APP that already listen to podcasts. Already part of their life you're converting the converted already which is amazing and then your call to action at the end of that show is by the way I hope you keep listening to the model show because Shawn's awesome. I want to become one of your seven though. So if you want to check out the healthy health fit show that I just launched you know this. This is where you should check it out. I great podcast episodes there. Come listen and now you're you're there delivering value having the spotlight on you for the episode called Action for people to listen to your show. Yeah Yeah Great Idea I was. I'm just GonNa add to that that it's really cool. How it seems like podcasters and youtubers understand? Maybe maybe it's because more podcasters than youtubers they understand Trying to teach people about this new medium that was was new and so for lack of a better word. It's kind of incestuous they understand the collaboration. They really want to help each other out. Unlike some Industries where it's like. I'm not going to go on that. Other one they're going to steal my markinor steal my market share. It seems like podcasters really into enjoy are very supportive of other podcasts. CALL IT CO mingling. Your audiences and I think that's the way to look at it as I listened like there are going to be people all that are gonNA listen to an average of seven part gas every single week so you know. Let's just be one of those seven. Let's help each other out. We have similar audiences. Let's make sure your audience knows about me and my knows about you. And let's combing the these audiences in all ships will rise in that high type at some point here though. So do you think podcasting peaks. I mean won't too many of us have shows and and and and honestly Not everyone should have a podcast. All of that is true. All things come to an end. Zombie huge believer in the phrase. This too shall pass like when things are going great. You look in the mirror and say this too shall pass. That's when things are going horrible. Look in the mirror the exact same thing because it's true like podcast things obviously going to at some point. You know become out of vogue just like everything ever. Are you know period and a story. When I don't know I mean don't you think it's just gonNA transition into the next thing that we didn't see before podcasting came about out? Yes you know maybe I mean with technology and innovation and everything that's going on. I don't think it's I think you can parlay your audience into that new thing. Hopefully a lot of people have successfully like with snapchat snapchat for a couple years and then incident instagram's degrom stories came out and kind of copied. Everything snapchat was doing a lot of people just having more success on instagram stories. So they're just like hey if you're watching snapchat like this. My last snap like get over fall manuscripts ceramic us from putting on my time energy and evidence and the meaningful audience. All of that. And you know those that didn't they weren't worth anything anyways. How much of some of these other projects you've done like your journal and doing the affiliate marketing and sponsorships? How much of that was just you? You thinking this is where you should go meets percentage of listening to your audience in what they were asking for. None of it was me thinking. This is where I should go like. The biggest mistake people make is a leg. John you come up with all of these multimillion dollar ideas because they have all these multimillion products and services at and come up with any of them. I I always always ask my audience these four questions first off. Where'd you hear about me because I want to know all the time where people her about me with listen to me? I Hoping some people when I'm asking them in the next month to be like I heard about you on you know on a reinvention radio like bubble. This is why I'm doing these things and like and having fun and hanging out. That was Steve. You know who I've been friends with for years and years in fact I have a really old school story. You know I could tell. I can tell a little bit about that if we have time for. But that's just the example. If like I always always know where people are hearing about me and my podcast amplify those areas number two. I asked him you know. What do you like most about my shows by can really implement those things the next level? And what do you like least about my show. And when one person says one thing I ignore it but if I hear tenth you will say the same thing. Maybe I take a little stock in that and change some things up the the number four what is your biggest struggle obstacle right now and they share it and buy them sharing those obstacles and struggles. They're getting me the ideas that I turn into multi-million-dollar ideas like podcasters paradise and the Freedom Journal the Mastery Journal the podcast Journal one Hundred Eighty Gold Journal books that I've written courses. I've created communities that I made all all these things has all come from me creating a solution to the problem that my actual listeners are telling me they currently have you now wait. I think you've been jumping out of your chair back there. What's up? I just wanted to build on that but a quick flashback. You're talking about the old days back in two thousand six seven. We're doing ebay radio. Radio and people are downloading that on their fifty six K Modem and burning it to a CD so they could play that in their car. As you're driving into work so you know talk about. They were in the store. Yeah the ways people do that but the follow up question is if fundamentally what we're doing is building relationships with communities these I believe is a new business model. How're you using additional social media platforms to build your community and support report podcast? So that's a great question and one really tactical answer. I'll give here is right now. There are facebook groups on everything Galore and their free in their public Noor thriving and people who are in their engaging every single day. So what I tell. People is a great gray strategies. Find into one or two FACEBOOK groups or if you're more corporate may be linked in group will be more for you and you find a couple of these groups that are free that are are thriving. That are chock full of your perfect listener so like a real random example would be like if you're a realtor in southern California find a couple thriving public free free facebook groups or Lincoln groups that are talking about real estate in southern California. Like get real specific lead me. There's plenty of them and there's things like this there's groups like this for everything. Just use the facebook search bar and you'll find them join those groups and then do this. This is where you win at a high level so you spend thirty days doing nothing but this five minutes a day for those thirty days you log into that group set a timer for five minutes. Because you'RE GONNA value on time and you do these four things you ask a question group. You answer somebody else's question in the group you give one one piece of advice you give one piece of guidance. And that's it you give one piece of support in you have one piece of guidance so just like supporting somebody for congratulations on the house. She just bought or a piece of guidance. On you know make sure you get your homeowner's insurance whatever that might be so like you're doing that for five minutes every day in those two or three groups so most of your in three groups esteem. That's total so now you're in these three groups fifty minutes a day for you know thirty straight days..

"dumas" Discussed on Reinvention Radio

"I was able to leader of sixty men and four tanks so twenty three year old second lieutenants Austin the US army. We deployed again with sixteen men. Foremen per tank four tanks in on the tank commander. So I'm on one of the tanks and I'm in charge of all four of them and I remember so clearly when we were at Fort Riley Kansas about deploy our deployment ceremony. I know I'm hi. I'm literally like hugging and shaking hands of husbands wives. Mothers Fathers Kids you know and looking at the I'm being like you know I'm bringing your loved one a home like that was my job as the officer as the two leader of the tune and of course I meant it and of course I was naive about a lot of things never having been in war before but over the course of that thirteen months we lost four of the sixty soldiers they gave that ultimate sacrifice and you know I had to write those those letters like I had the person informing them that their loved ones never return and you know one of the most heartbreaking ones. That's you know. Obviously I think about on a daily the basis is on my platoon. Sergeant had a daughter while he was deployed. He had a picture of her but he never got to hold her. You never got to see her and she he was so tragic and so sad and it was just so overwhelming at the time you just have to kind of push through but kind of a point. I'll make from that. That is you know for me. Now it's just so simple to get in perspective in life when like a recording gets warped or a sponsored ronsard drops off or this happens that's crappy or power goes out you know while I'm interviewing Tony Robbins or whatever might happen like I can put things in perspective and be like you're not getting shot at like you're not endanger like you're not you know like literally in war right now like things could be so much worse so although this is an ideal I'm not going to be attended. I'm happy about it. I'm at least going to put things in perspective. So it's not GONNA ruin my overall perspective of this that's Yeah thanks for sure on the rest of that and how how do you define success. There's there's lots of different definitions is out there. One of my favorites is success. Means having the courage the determination the will to become the person you were meant to be. You've had a lot of success and maybe how you defined minded five ten years ago. He's very different from how you would define it now. How how would you define success when you first started down this entrepreneurial path verses this is how you define it now? If I'm going back to think about how I would define success. Ask like seven years ago when I launched entrepreneurs on fire you know it probably would have ben that I could pay my bills doing something I enjoy doing. which was entrepreneurs on fire which was interviewing people and growing a brand in the business of art cows? Not really knowing what my path to paying. Those bills was gonNA look like 'cause you still about a year out from generating any revenue with podcasting with the overall business. But that would have been what I would have probably define success as but you know looking back now having generated over sixteen million dollars in the past seven years and having operas doc fire Netting over a million dollars a year in revenue getting to keep almost all of that living in Puerto Rico paying a flat or percent tax rate. Ah Yada Yada like I now. Define success is really one work which is freedom because now my success has really given me freedom and the freedom that has given me is location freedom. I chose live in Puerto Rico and I want to live here and I live here. It gives me lifestyle freedom. You know I work really it really hard some days and I work almost not at all other days. Like I'm able to really structure my schedule in create the my boundaries that I want to create Kanai went on a ninety day world track back in August on November where we went to see. Gee I spent a four days with Tony Robbins at his resort resort in the molly which is nine other people than we did. The other like basically eighty eighty five days in Europe spending a week in AIRBNB and all these different countries in cities and it was unbelievable and gorgeous. Weeden it not work during that time. We're putting in about an hour to an hour and a half a day. You know doing emails social media all of these things. Thanks but it's around a business that we built in business. The we enjoyed so it's still our choice to continue to want to do that. And that really is what I would define success at. This point is is the freedom to do all those things. The location freedom the lifestyle freedom the financial freedom Yemen so let. Let's let's talk for a second in about want versus need and I mean it really does seem like you know you. You have everything that you want and you probably have have everything that you need first of all. Do you have everything that you want and everything that you need and if so how how do you stay fired up when when you don't want more and you don't need more well I think if you were to be technical on like maslow's hierarchy of needs. I probably have all that they need. You know I mean we have our dream home down here in Puerto Rico or able to do what we WANNA do and like all these different things. We have shelter. We have food. We have comfort we of all that but as far as like you know what I want like I still have this desire to have a big impact in this world and I really would love to be able to see that. There's earthquakes happening here in Puerto Rico are and just be able to go and swoop in like write a ten million dollars shack and just say let's just take care of the situation now or like identify another issue in Africa or in Thailand or in the United States in like go Lohan like just completely make a huge impact there and like am either financially now like no and like we'll ever there. Maybe not but you know. That's something that I I would love to achieve into. A chain of some point is just to be able to have that kind of financial Influence where I really could a make a massive impact two eight t to a cause that I really believe in and and would want to make a difference Riches Juve anything eh again. I don't WanNa hog the Mike here. No I was just going to kind of go back to the initial start with with podcasting and you were or a fan you. It was obvious that you didn't really want to Model after what someone else is doing. I noticed by the way you structured. Richard Your questions that that unlike some people your answers are the answers that came back to you would always be different right where some people get always have universal answers like yes. I believe in working out every day. so what do you think for people who WanNa on a podcast now. Do you think that there's a a format that people should be following or do you think it's still wide open as far as you could just create any new type of a format so going back to the first part what you were sharing. Is I really believe that entrepreneurs on fire was successful because I focused on this story and a lot of people would say well. Doesn't your podcast give boring because you just ask the same questions every time. But I'm like you're completely missing everything. Which is the question is tell me your biggest entrepreneurial failure and how are you ever going to get the same master to that? Anybody I mean. Everybody has an unbelievable story of their failure. This unbe hundred percent unique to that individual. And so. That's where story really comes in. I'm a big believer in story like there's a reason why history is his story like it's all about the stories that we just grew up as how we used to pass a long history as you know before you the right things down before you could store things on computers like it was by the spoken word. And that's why you hear the phrase like once upon a time like you kind of lead in because you want to hear that history like what happened back then like people really resonate with that and so kind of moving forward into the second part of your question is I think still is wide open. But you've got to do it in a way that is really creating massive solutions to real people's problems so if you're gonNA the podcast in two thousand twenty said amazing time for there's more listeners now for podcast than there ever has been like people like John was like so easy if you back two thousand twelve roommate but nobody listened to podcast back in two thousand twelve. Like I was a Weirdo listening to podcasts. It was hard. It was a techy like you couldn't you couldn't be like Alexa play. PODCAST ask like in the car dash wasn't in. This wasn't an outlet. You literally had to be a little bit of a techie person to figure out how to make it happen and there wasn't that many listeners and now the listenership ship has exploded in his everywhere companies like Pandora and spotify an iheartradio and other companies have all gone. All in on this on this medium are doing amazing using things to the worst. Now you have this much bigger potential audience but with that. I think you've got to be very specific. And very structured of. Hey I I am going to solve one person's problem at a very high level. So what was the problem that I saw back in two thousand twelve. That was pretty broad the way that was back in two thousand twelve to you could be a little more broad back and still win because the competition so much lower so much less saturated but I was solving the problem of that person like myself that was driving to work every day. It was working out multiple days per week. That loved podcast go wasn't getting enough. Didn't WanNa wait a whole week for the next episode. Come come out when they just listened to a twenty five minute episode so that every single day was right there for people. It was the right solution to your problem. So what is your podcast. Odd cast going to provide as a real solution to a real problem and just interviewing successful entrepreneurs. You're not solving a problem. That's not being solved by hundreds if not thousands of other people so you may have some level of success but they could just go to any others. What's keeping them listening to yours and all these different thanks? So that's what the folks to be in two thousand twenty and beyond it comes to podcasting. Hasn't are you going to be able to be best in show in for me. It's it's like I want to solve a real problem for real listeners. And if I can't be the best at this level that I've got to go one niche down and if I can be the best at this level that I'm going to stay here until I've got momentum to them potentially move back up to the next level for some people might be going three levels down and that's fine because you sometimes just a niche till it hurts but you've gotta find that place where you're solving a real problem at the best level all of your competitors. It's a really really good point and it. It plays a little bit into the the question around discover ability as well and me reality. He is because you've been at this now for some time you you you will smartly so you receive the benefits of Of getting into podcasting asking early and and and really been able to benefit from what I would call the ascending spiral which is as new listeners. Come into to the PODCAST. Mix they see the shows that are in the rankings. See The shows that are on the charts as A. That's an interesting show. Let me check that out. So they they start listening. They started subscribing start downloading the star rating. They start reviewing and then of course that helps those shows that are already popular stay popular. Oh and ascend in that spiral which makes it really really hard for most mere mortal starting a show to break into that unless you'd really Driving listeners listeners from other existing platforms so so to that end. How do you think new shows get discovered and we know L.? Three hundred thousand shows were launched just in twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Those numbers continue to grow. How do those shows get discovered and ultimately survive? Well you do what I just shared which I won't go into detail again but you do really be focused on not just being this broad vague show but really being a niche niche specific show. They're willing to serve a really diverse audience. And I kind of like the idea of like combining two niches like say like. You just became a Vegan. Angie Angie like well what is like something that Veasley struggle with well. What's the right way to to exercise now that you're not having any kind of meat in your life? Well well what if like yoga was a great way to exercise. If you're a Vegan well what if you create now podcasts. Combine the two niches of the Vegan Yogi like now everybody who's the Vegan or everybody likes yoga. And there's like this crossover here so now you can be like this solution to two niches serious areas problems. Which is I'm you know? I Love Yoga. But I'm Vegan or Levin going to do for exercise in you're able to solve that problem at a very compact level so now in between the lines is up. Are you saying if people are going. And then they're searching for like almost like SEO is websites right. I mean they're going through. Throwing these search terms into the box is that is that how do podcasters potentially should be thinking about it and even out new listeners are trying to find shows yeah. Keyword searching is really big for the reasons of actually searching for podcasts and then finding the shows you want and actually having a show title that is promising the solution to the problem that people have which is the looking for that content is going to digital press. Play a lot more than just having like the John Lee Dumas. Shell like okay. What does it John Lee Dumas?.
