Q&A: How Can I Launch a Set of Unique Enamel Pins?
"Is the most effective way of launching by enamel brain pins wholesale and getting them into the right hands at museum and hospital gift shops nationally. The pens are high. Quality enamel designed by me manufactured. In china they are loved by neuroscientists neurologists psychologists and others. Who work with the brain or people who have brain injuries or illnesses. I thought about emailing links and sending samples in fun and different packaging. Or i'm also wondering if i should go the more traditional route of the big expensive gift show. Thanks so much for all you do to help all of us out here. it's invaluable. thank you so much laura. you're awesome congratulations on going fulltime. I think you said you're doing that this month or soon. At least i'll listeners. I want to encourage you to check out laura's site one because we want to support her but also because it's a really good example here. Laura bundesbahn dot com. Bunsen be indy. Espn dot com and my first comment here before we talk about the new line of products. My first comment is i really respect her pricing. Like laura's work is not cheap. She's doing some really beautiful art. A lot of it has mixed media and it sells for a good amount of money. Like i'm looking at these pieces on the site. And i'm seeing eight hundred dollars nine hundred and fifty dollars thirty six hundred dollars. Three thousand six hundred fifteen hundred dollars etc so some really beautiful art and she's not afraid to sell it for a good price so good for her. She probably wouldn't be able to go full time. She was selling this work for fifty to one hundred dollars each also. This kind of pricing allows for some investing in marketing and some experiments especially when it comes to launching a new product line like launching these new enamel pins and so my that was my first thought about i respect the pricing. My second thought. As i heard the question was have you tried exhibiting and then at the end she mentioned the big expensive gift show you know. I think it's a risk. Nothing is guaranteed but might you regret it if you didn't try and if it were me in this situation i think i would which would tell me. Oh i should definitely try it. I think this is the time in which you invest it in which you are willing to do. Some more extensive experiments reaching out to her target market and sending physical samples. So i think she mentioned something about that. Kind of outreach. I would send physical samples of the pins not just a link or i might email and ask if i could send a physical sample just so a bit. More of a relationship has been established since it's ultimately a physical product. She wants to sell. And i assume it will be a lot lower price than the handcrafted one of a kind art that she also sells probably gonna help to see it in
The Downfall of Enron
"After nine am in early december sherron. Watkins arrived at enron headquarters. She squeezes past local news. Crews as they set up tripods she takes home to gaze. The various cameras trained on reporters. Standing patiently with their microphones in hand. Ready to go live walking. Shakes her head. She never thought she'd lived to see the day. When the downfall of a corporation would attract the same level of coverage as a natural disaster she and hers and ron's main lobby. She expected a grim scene but nothing could have prepared her for this shell shocked former. Employees had towards the doors in a mass exodus their personal effects piled into cardboard boxes. Any of them have put their boxes on the seats of eight hundred dollar office chairs. They're wheeling out like shopping carts. Men and women weep openly the layoffs have begun walk walking systems. Sure where to go what to do or who to talk to. She's waiting for the elevator. When a man approaches she recognizes him. I can't remember from where as they step into the elevator. He reminds her that. He's one of the company's lawyers now that enron is bankrupt. He says with a smirk. It's lawyers are the only ones with job. Security walk ins wonders. Exactly what that means for her as the doors open to her floor. He tells her not to worry her job safe for another month at least walk ins asks. Why man raises his eyebrows. As if he's just been asked the dumbest question in the world and ron still needs her. He says she'll probably be asked to appear in court as lawsuits against enron begin to land in the coming weeks after all. You're the one who tried to warn. Lay the company was in danger right. You're famous

Power from the gilded age to the digital age senator. Thanks for being here. Well thank you. It's just wonderful to be on. You have been doing a few things during the past few years been busy. Why at a book. And i might add. This is not a quickie book. This is not an election book. This is a very heavily reported historical book more than two hundred pages of notes. Why well because. I care that much about this. I started to think about doing this a few years ago and it really for me started with a call. I got way back in two thousand and eight when i got a call from a pharmacist. Actually at minneapolis children's hospital and he said that the cost of this life saving heart drug for heart defects had gone up astronomically from like eight hundred dollars a treatment to sixteen hundred dollars treatment and he didn't know why and so. This is a very typical. You get these constituent calls so our staff followed up ahead of minneapolis children's and lo and behold. It turned out that one company had bought that drug but then they had also cornered the market by buying the competitor drugs. And so what happened. Was that the ftc got involved after. I brought it up. It's like your classic new senator. And i bring it up. I have the little vial at a hearing. And i say why is this happening to the ftc and they start federal trade commission based start looking into it and ended up bringing a major suit and that was really exciting. Then which is typical of a lot of these cases. The courts threw it out. Basically and said oh it's the other similar and then it took years for a generic and another competitor to develop
Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out
A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit
"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.
Huawei unveils flagship foldable smartphone for China market
"Have another foldable phone. This one from wall way. Sarah tells all about it all right away. The made x. two which now holds the screen inside like the samsung galaxy. Fold rather than wrapping around the outside when you close it while we added a second six point. Four or five inch led ninety. Heard screen to the made to for you to use. It is folded. The inside foldable screen is eight inches. Twenty four by twenty display and the company says the mate x has less of an internal gap so it folds flatter than the galaxy full. So they're obviously making comparisons there. The screen folds into a waterdrop shape at the hinge when closed to prevent chrissy and and also breaking the made two launches but the android ten based. Em ui eleven. No google services but while we says it will be. One of the first device is upgraded to harmony os. That's always us in april. The made extra comes to china on february twenty fifth for seventy thousand nine hundred ninety nine one which is about two thousand seven hundred eighty five. Us dollars the announcement was conducted in mandarin nod. In english as is as it was in previous announcements and facts while we may run out of parts in q to even one if us trade restrictions do remain in place. Nick asia reported last week. That always told suppliers smartphone component orders would-be sixty percent lower than last year. Yes on the one hand we we see wah wah moving over to samsung's form factor On the other hand they are touting unimproved hinge that they say well. We've moved there because we've made it better but outside this is obviously targeted only domestically in china and We it's a question of even how many they could make to sell in china. Trevor have you been paying attention to this. Yeah i mean. I think if you're running out of chips the navy a good strategy would be to put out a phone. That's this expensive. You know you're not gonna sell now. Granted they they've probably been working on this for years but like that's going to help like how many people are going to spend twenty eight hundred dollars on a folding fund but it puts wall in a position where they're innovating on this new form factor. And personally. I think that the the full actually works really well. Because you don't have that sort of lopsided gap that you do in other foldables while way is playing out the clock here. They're they're hoping they can find a way out of this and they just wanna keep making models. They sold off on her but they do not want to sell off while way itself which would be the only other way out of this but if the. Us doesn't budge. Which doesn't look like it's going to. I'm not sure how long they can go. Obviously not longer than q two if things stay exactly the way they are now. Well the the foldable itself looks pretty nice guy. I didn't watch the entire announcement again in mandarin but the subtitles. I can follow along pretty well but it does look at least you know when someone standing on stage telling you about specs. It looks to be very nice When it's you know when it's when it's being used in tablet form You got a nice little eight inch screen when you've when it's when it's folded but you can still use it as a phone kind of block easy but i think for anyone who's like yeah but i have multiple devices and one that makes sense. It does seem pretty sturdy. One thing i did like about it was that they said that it was waited on one side and it reminded me a lot of the e-readers in adel put more weight on. What side because it's a more natural way to hold the device when you're holding it open so i think that's something that hopefully other foldables will adopt. Because they're sort even because they're trying to distribute the parts evenly across the
Bitcoin hits new record of $50,000
"Bitcoin crashed through fifty thousand dollars in the middle of the night. That's back down to forty eight or forty nine today but it for record high fifty thousand dollars so thanks government. I saw that. I expect their their contributions to bitcoin to continue helping me. Yes what did they do to bitcoin. Well they printed a bunch of money and made bitcoin a healthy alternative. That's constantly gaining value versus the us d- which is constantly losing value because they just keep printing more and more of it yet the more they crank up the printing presses for For the us dollar and other currencies around the world and they're all printing and they're all giving it a you know giving away to their buddies. That's just the way that that system works Bitcoin is completely independent from cryptocurrency. In general is independent from those money. Printers they don't have any control over it so they have no idea what the price of bitcoin is going to do. In relation to it like how far up it will go and they cannot stop it. That's an interesting way of looking at it. you know is value. Bitcoin actually up right now or is the value of us. T just that much down right now. I suspect it's a combination of the two. I because the other cryptos aren't rising at the same clip as bitcoin so bitcoin is much higher valued. I would say then. Probably the dollar is losing value. But that's a good thing for everybody holding bitcoin. Bitcoin cash got up to almost eight hundred dollars. If i remember correctly got up over seven hundred at the least yeah a lot of the alz. Is they call them. Have been having a pretty nice week

Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide.

Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet. It just hasn't a katelyn voc rehab. Though in fact is probably a better benefit than the post nine eleven. Gi bill pays for literally everything. You need special equipment for your degree. Plan pays for that. You have to pay for parking at your school. Pays for that. You'd pay for books pays for that pays for pretty much everything and just about anything you do that has to do with getting your education and i'm saying this because i want to reiterate it vo korea will pay for that and so it does seem at least initially to be a better benefit than the post nine eleven gi bill. But here's where you can. Combine them nate. Because you can't use them both at once you can use either one or the other because if you use vocal rehab or any it will cut into the total time you can use your gi bill. So here's the hack if you will if you use all thirty days of your post nine eleven gi bill and then apply for your vote rehab benefit. Frankly i'd opt for a bit more. Forty five sixty days. Something like that just to be on the safe side. But thirty days minimum is what i found volk rehab or vr knee or whatever. You want to call. It goes through a different process than the post nine eleven. Gi bill but leveraging these two benefits together is really the best of both worlds. And here's why. I say that because let's say you use just about all of your post nine eleven gi bill to get your bachelor's degree in psychology. But you wanna be a licensed professional counselor. Will you need at least a master's degree for that and you've used almost all of your jive. Ill what are you gonna do. Well then you go to your local. Vr knee or volk rehab counselor and say. Hey here's what i need to do. And then you move into the vote rehab program now again. Your mileage may vary. Because i've heard again a lot of mixed stories mixed reviews of working with folk rehab counselor but that is your process and again i will post a link to these processes or actually there's a few links but all these processes and all these resources in the show with that we have reached the end of season six episode. So what are your questions voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast kurds. Fight again dot com. So what's on your mind. What questions are you asking.

Third stimulus check: Biden backs full $1,400 payment if you make up to $75,000
"While the senate is mostly focused on the impeachment trial this week. Lawmakers over in the house are putting their energy into the next covid nineteen relief bill and yes. It's looking likely. Americans will get a third round of direct payments. The latest proposal from democrats calls for fourteen hundred dollars to go to people who make up to seventy five thousand dollars a year and couples. Who make up to one hundred and fifty thousand a year would get twenty eight hundred dollars now. This could be based on your twenty twenty tax return unless of course you have not filed yet. Then it will go by twenty nine thousand nine taxes. President biden has now endorsed this plan. He democrats say the american people cannot wait any longer for the economic help needed now but some republicans say the democrats are not working to compromise. Many moderate republicans and democrats want fewer people to qualify for direct payments. This time around voicing concerns about the national debt and they've said in the past they've worried the relief package will be too big either way. This latest proposal still has a long way to go. Lawmakers still need to draft a complete bill to include a lot of other pandemic era priorities like a funding boost for schools extra unemployment benefits and more money to help with vaccine efforts. Then the senate and house both need to sign off before it will go to the president to sign into law. The goal is to have everything done by the middle of next month. So we'll see
Which One Would You Choose?
"To where you oh no one money and it can start out by you know paying off your credit card debt. Pay off your personal loans paying off your student loans and last but not least pay off the mortgage. Start enjoying your paycheck. I'm not talking about leaving a couple hundred bucks or thousand dollars leftover at the end of the month. I'm talking about really enjoying your own paycheck on a monthly basis. To where you don't have to worry about money being in the bank and last what about having money in savings and i'm not talking about two hundred and fifty dollars or four hundred bucks. I'm talking about a thousand dollars and then building up that that savings account to be six months worth of living expenses. Now if you had that. And god forbid envision this piece in this. I don't like to go down the dark path but twenty twenty taught us a lot about you know ourselves in what's going on. Let's say you're going along. Happy joy everything is great and unfortunately you lose your job and you're out looking for a job and you just can't find one. You still have to pay your bills. But you don't have very much in savings and what you get an unemployment six hundred dollars a week. Eight hundred dollars a week somewhere around. There doesn't cut it. So what do you do. You keep looking for a job. You keep going through the process but at the end of the day. You still have bills to be paid. You call your creditors in your creditors are willing to give you a forbearance or deferment. But that doesn't help you because there's one thing that's happening interest is still crewing on your accounts so you don't have a payment do but next month your payments can be larger. Because you still have a balance. That's do that balances accruing interest in your probably charging on it or using the account. And then guess what happens. You have a larger payment the next month. So how you gonna for the larger payment if you couldn't afford the smaller one and then unfortunately some of these bills will go into collections in in go further down the road and i don't wanna go there. Here's what i really wanna paint you guys this way you're going along you have your dream job and you're making good money and you don't owe anybody a nickel a- dime you are financially and debt free to where you're putting away twenty percent of your paycheck on a monthly basis. You have that rainy day fund. That's put in place. God forbid something happens and you're not living paycheck to paycheck. And guess what you have. You have another savings account for your fund days to where you can take the family on vacations cruises Wherever you want to go and you don't owe anybody a single thing through this whole process. Now stop in. Imagine how that would feel to where you could not. Oh anybody a single dime or a nickel. How does that make you feel makes me feel. It makes me feel great. I it makes me feel like i'm alive.
Should You Rent Live Streaming Gear?
"On this episode. You will learn why you should consider renting livestreaming gear before you make that final purchase decision. So gem let's talk about renting livestreaming gear. Yeah i think a lot of times. We make the assumption that we have to buy this stuff. But if you're in business especially if you're a business owner you're in the business of live streaming. You actually have some options that the the hobbyist may be necessarily doesn't and that is you can lease equipment. You can rent equipment for a short period of time. I mean i have a friend that runs a video production company. He doesn't own any of his cameras. He goes and rents them whenever he gets a job for a client. Because one thing that happens with gear is this stuff gets upgraded all the time and so sometimes trying to keep up with the latest and the greatest goes into one of your favorite phrases. Yes and it's a gas gear acquisition syndrome and basically. It's the fact that you know when we buy a piece of equipment we then wanna keep buying because we see what other people have or what kind of they're using for their live streaming setup. Now to your point jim. I mean when you buy equipment you know. It's it's an asset appreciable asset. So it's like buying a car. For example you buy it and then it's gonna depreciate over time so for example if you bought that thousand dollar camera over time you know it's going to pretty much worthless it's going to be you've got time working against it and you also have the technology as well because technology changes extremely rapidly. You know it changes so quickly that that you know to the point where you buy something in like maybe in a month it's outdated because every about every year there's always something new coming out so this might be. You know a good reason why you should rent livestreaming gear so jim. Let's talk about just the various parts about renting equipment. I mean as you know. Yes people can go out and they can you know if they have. I think keating is like let's start with budget. I mean we rent. Why should somebody rent gear. I mean they definitely show up budget right. That's part of it absolutely. And i think and so. That's where renting right gives you that ability to you know it's like it's like a car taking a test drive you can try before you buy. I mean We're going to share some links a little bit later. Some of these places. You could rent Stuff for as little as three days. So you know be focused that you're going to actually you know you know 'cause how many times do we buy a new piece of equipment and then it sits there for a little bit before we start using it and so this kind of makes you think. Hey i if i if i'm serious about using this piece a year i'm actually going to you know. Take it out use it. Make sure it's it's doing what i think it can do or wanted to do. And so sometimes you're gonna find out that that's not what it is advertised that it would do isn't always what ends up being the case and it doesn't do what you were hoping for a one great example of this you know their cameras so when you're running a livestream you may want to use. Will you want to have a camera and a lot of people to start with the first option the webcam sorry the the built in webcam. And then when they're ready they're like hey i want another will just having. The webcam is not the only piece of equipment you need when you have for example if you're using a built in webcam you need a webcam you need lighting for example to then make that webcam look good and you know those webcams they can only do. So much so might be choppy because it's basically contingent on your computer so for example. If that's not good enough in your okay. I won't improve that. Well then i'm going to go to a webcam and actual external webcam extra webcams limitations. And then you go up another notch. If you're like hey want to. I want to be able to switch different things for example different cameras or i want to have different angles will a webcam can only do so much. Then you need to move into. Dsl are mirrorless camera and those then for example require more equipment to actually run the equipment. So it's it's a slippery slope once you start using different types of equipment. They're always going to be additional costs for example if you buy diesel our camera. Hey it's oh. I can just go buy one off the shelf. But here's the thing. It's not just about buying off the shelf. You then have to buy the right lens. Some of them include lenses which is great. But hey then we'll hey. How do i put this into my computer and that gets us into unietd capture card so as you can see it can quickly spiral out of control and so this is a really really really good reason why people need to consider renting livestreaming gear There's so much out there. And depending on what. Your setup is what your budget is you can easily go and drop immune if you wanted to buy just a basic camera. Six hundred dollars a camera. Two hundred dollars on a capture card to be able to plug the camera into your computer. So we're eight hundred dollars. Roughly right there Let's see what else you need. They need probably an audio interface or microphone. Sorry audio interface or mixer. So that's what one hundred one hundred fifty dollars till like five or six hundred dollars. That's really more bare minimum. So i think we're what that's probably around fifteen hundred sixteen hundred dollars right there and then. Hey i want improve my audio. I can go by mike for one hundred dollars but you know again then. I have to have a by the mike. Well then i have to have the armed. Attach it while the arm is another hundred. So you know you're at what That's that's over two thousand dollars right there. And that doesn't include the software so easily you've reached twenty five hundred three thousand dollars so some of the benefits obviously like to renting this gears. That will if you don't have the cash then. Maybe you rent a piece of equipment that you need. You know that you need and use it temporarily and you use it to film all of your videos at once and then you return the equipment versus. I dropped three thousand dollars. And then i have to actually spend the time learning it in also making sure that it works how i needed to work. You know. there's a whole process at it right job. Oh absolutely and then the other thing you may start to find an and it was funny. I was A guy guys said this the other day it's like if you have one dollar lighting and thousand dollar camera you've basic aren't going to have a one dollar camera because you didn't take into consideration the other stuff that you need to make that camera work right. You know. I mean sometimes like we have people that wanna have green screens. And they don't have the lighting and so they're backdrop actually looks worse than if they just had a plane wall behind them. And so you know reading this stuff can really give you a feel for like. Is this really. What's going to move the needle for me. I mean you know. We've always talked about getting better one percent of the time so this is a big deal when you kind of as you're when you when you've got gas you really gotta sometimes take a step back and really say. Is this really going to help my business. What's the plan behind it. And so you know and and and you may find that your space that you're live streaming from isn't really a set up in a way to properly use that gear right if you've got you know like i'm bringing in a second camera but now when you look at the lighting it's like oh my backdrop looks horrible. My walls not you know so maybe you want to improve the status of your studio before you go one by year but then even renting the gear will let you say oh. This isn't going to work quite like. I thought you know. Cut your. it really is a way to kind of. Cut your losses temporarily until you're ready to take that next step and there are a couple of different approaches. You can take this as i mentioned earlier. If you're you know if you're a type a person you're a planner and you've got everything ready like you know for example what your videos are going to film are and you've got them scripted out. It would make sense if you don't have all the equipment go and go to a rental place and we'll share some of those here and few minutes but go to a place that you can rent equipment from and tell them. Hey you know what this is. What i'm looking to do for the most part. They're going to know their stuff inside now and they're going to be able to also sort of give you a bit of a consultation they're gonna be able to recommend what might pair well
Qualcomms New Snapdragon 870
"Coming soon to millions of odroid phones qualcomm has unveiled. Its new snapdragon. Eight seventy chip which has a similar design to the eight sixty five and eight sixty five plus but is clocked at three point. Two gigahertz making it about ten percent faster than the eight sixty five. Quoting the verge. Think of it almost like a snapdragon. Eight sixty five plus plus qualcomm says that the reason for the new chip is in response to manufacture market demands. The eight seventy is designed for companies that want to offer a top tier processor. But don't need the absolute best features the flagship snapdragon eight eight offers and the higher price tag that it demands instead. The company says that it expects that snapdragon eight seventy pounds should hit a sub eight hundred dollar price tag. Although confusingly we've already seen snapdragon eight eight eight phones like the seven hundred and ninety nine dollar galaxy s twenty one. Start to bleed into that range presumably. There's also a marketing aspect here. The snapdragon eight seven new branding and modest if still real speed improvements over the snapdragon eight sixty five plus mean that companies using the chip in their phones. Get a new twenty twenty one chip to boast about on spec sheets without concerns of getting looked over by customers for having an outdated or old processor eight sixty five or eight sixty five plus and quote
Samsung Galaxy S21 vs. iPhone 12
"Galaxy. S twenty one. Yes twenty one. Plus any s twenty-one ultra starting at eight hundred dollars for the standard model with the s twenty one plus costing about a thousand dollars and then the s twenty one ultra costing about twelve hundred dollars for years now. Samsung has positioned itself as one of the top. If not the top smartphone available on google's android platform as a result it is often considered the primary rival to apple in its iphone. So here's the question. How does the new line of samsung galaxy devices compared to the iphone. Twelve the latest model of apple's popular smartphone. That's we'll break down today. Let's start with the twenty one versus the iphone twelve the standard models. They're very similar. Screen sizes the same overall size. Weight of the phone is the same. Here's where they kinda stick out a little bit. The twenty one offers more storage at starting line so you get one hundred twenty eight gig versus sixty four gig at the start for an iphone twelve. The other thing is interesting to the twenty. One offers three cameras on the back of the phone basically meaning telephoto lens which is typically included on models of the iphone. Twelve pro are available here The iphone twelve has just two lenses on the back of its phone. So you're looking at four cameras. Total one front three in the back on s twenty one for his three total cameras one front two in the back for the iphone twelve also pricing pretty much. Exactly the same. So essentially within twenty. One you're getting an extra camera and more sword right out of the gate. The s twenty one plus versus the iphone pro with the iphone twelve pro again. You get a third camera on the back but telephoto lens. But what's interesting is the twenty one plus gives you a larger screen so instead of the six point one inch screen that you would have on the iphone twelve pro you end up with a six point seven inch screen on the twenty one plus so that's interesting to And again both. Those phones are pretty much on par price-wise prices the same. The size of the phone is really the difference here in terms of the screen. The starting storage is the same one hundred. Twenty eight gig but really. It's about that screen size. You get a lot more screen for your buck with that samsung phone now. Let's get to the granddaddies here. The ultra for the pro. Max with the ultra. You get six point eight inch screen so really not that big a leap compared to the plus the iphone twelve pro. Max is where you see a bigger leap and screen size from the pro. Six point seven inches When you're looking at the key features the pro. Max camera system has some smaller upgrades to get better. Zoom for example. I'm higher aperture as well. The twenty one. Ultra has an astonishing cameras on the back of the phone. So you get a second telephoto lens. That's interesting to price price-wise also it's about one hundred dollars more for the s twenty ultra versus the iphone. Twelve pro max. Here's another wrinkle to this though you have a fourth iphone. Twelve model the iphone twelve mini which is essentially the iphone twelve. Just in a much smaller size. In fact i just upgraded to an iphone twelve mini coming from an iphone seven and it's actually smaller than the iphone seven but it has a bigger screen and it's a nice phone and i think for folks that maybe are just tired of the bigger smartphone screens. It's a good alternative
Can You Pay Your Mortgage with a Credit Card?
"Yeah so. Let's talk about matt how you could potentially use a credit card in order to pay for your mortgage like jen said. It's pretty hard to come by. We'll do our best to give you just a couple of that. You could potentially consider and interestingly enough you're more likely to find an apartment complex or landlord who's willing to accept credit cards for rent payment. Then you are to find a bank willing to accept a credit card for a mortgage payment for instance if your landlord uses a service like cosy. You can choose to pay via credit card. Although at the same time you're gonna pay a fee in order to do that and even the mortgage servicers that do accept them on the fee that they pay to oftentimes plus extra at the time of the payment so i do have one mortgage company that will accept credit cards. Nice but i. I can't i forget if it's two and a half percent or three percent need to go back and look so it just never make sense. It just negates the bonus from the car exactly right so and then another potential option is you could use the checks. Your credit card company sends you aka the convenience checks if they certainly will want you to start using convenience. Checks is what they call them really what they heart like cash advance checks and they're just not good for you because of the fees that are charged for using those checks they sent out to you and it's typically somewhere between three and five percent so again with those as well. It just doesn't make sense to use them in order to pay your mortgage and that's because the rewards that you're getting from doing so are typically capped at two percent. It just doesn't make sense to pay four percent to get two percent. Yeah sure unless. Amex starts categorizing mortgage payments as groceries right. Exactly six percent two percent spread but jin a roundabout way that we've heard of before is to use your credit card to purchase a money order deposit that money order with your bank and then pay your mortgage with the account that you deposited the money order into however the the problem there is. There's only a couple of money order. Companies who accept credit cards just Western union seven but even then another hurdle or the big fees charged by the credit card company. By the way. I like to get my money. Orders when i get my slurpee at seven and that's perfect combo. I don't think there are seven. Elevens around us are there like i don't see them anywhere near atlantic. Maybe in the burbs. We don't like near where we live. Yeah yeah but the the problem here though is A money order jen. You're gonna touch on this. It's a type of guaranteed payment right and so much credit card. Companies are going to treat that expense as a cash advance. And so because of that you'll be charged for it again in the in the three to five percent range so again this is another instance where the benefits you would receive would be outweighed by the fees that they're going to charge plus in this case. There's a lot of hassles. Well we're gonna keep coming up with option. Here's one more. Plastic is another Website that you could turn to. It's the one option that we know that allows you to pay a bill like a mortgage with your credit card and it's worth looking into matt. You've used this before when they had promotional offense but they don't have a professional offering the rate that they charge us two point eight five percent and so again the only time that it would make sense to use plastic to pay mortgage is potentially in the case that you need to hit a credit card sign up bonus in order to score what like six seven eight hundred dollars from the initial spin that you gotta meet with credit card if you're having trouble meaning it through other things that won't Charge you a fee that it might make sense to pay your mortgage with that credit card through a website like plastic at least just at once in order to make sure that you get that sweet bonus and basically the way plastic forks. Is that when you pay via their website. They then cut a check to the mortgage company. Nashville paper check. So that's how that's how it works. It's certainly an interesting service. And when they do have promo lineups matt. Didn't you at some point. Five grand and free money. Think so and so. This was a couple of years ago. I think when they first launched But basically they were giving away fee free dollars and so you had to spend limit in. Hey up to five thousand dollars. We'll cut those checks for you free of charge. And so i was able to like you said literally. I was able to hit a spend limit for a new credit card. Sign up bonus That i may not have otherwise hit but to be honest. I have not seen any other sort of promotions like that. Since then you are able to get fee free dollars by referring friends and so every time you refer somebody they use their service. You will then receive some feverish dollars but again. This isn't something. That is really sustainable. it can be something that maybe do once saying here to hit a spend limit but otherwise. It's not something that you can kinda regularly go to and so jen for you. It's probably just stick with those automatic. Ach payments and then. Just keep an eye out for you. Know maybe codes that plastic does put out there to kind of maybe less than that fee for at least a month or two of payments ultimately trying to get your mortgage on a credit card. It's just a lot of hassle and even if you were able to get to work out you likely won't be earning enough in cashback to to actually make it. Worthwhile might be more of a key hot pursuit or audit quixotic. Okay all right so yeah. It might be one of those things where you're tilting at windmills. You're pursuing an opportunity to try to earn greater cashback when you're paying your mortgage but ultimately there's just not a cut route that exists in order to help you do that. And score those cashback rewards every month without paying fees that outweigh the potential opportunity.

Is it something you really need. When considering which funded by there is a premium for five devices. So is it really worth. It is rolling out in more areas throughout this year. But i know like some carriers. I believe t mobile. They offer five g coverage under its unlimited plan anyway. So it's understandable if you're eyeing a five g device and that's your next phone in that situation but i'm not a hundred percent convinced a five g iphone is something you absolutely need this year especially when so many people are working from home anyway and especially if you don't have good five three coverage in your area so you should definitely check that before you make a decision and you know coverage maps from carriers. They don't really tell the whole story so you you wanna make sure you do a lot of research and phones. Five g. phones are getting cheaper and cheaper. So i may hold out just a bit longer gutted. It feels like the most part people are committed to the platforms. They've chosen if you're an iphone user. You're likely buying a new iphone. Twelve financial user. You have more choices. But a- likely to stick with another android phone other instances where you would consider switching. Generally that is true It people do tend to kind of stick with the same ecosystems. But i think it's easier to switch platforms easier more now than now more than ever especially compared to years past I think about some certain situations that would motivate motivate someone switch and i think peripheral accessories are especially good reason of the airpods pro. They do work with android phones to an extent but their functionality and their features work so much better with an iphone and you basically kind of even iphone to use an apple watch for its to its full potential so i could see android user. Who is really attracted to those accessories switch for that. I think for an iphone to android people do want the customization. I know iowa's fourteen gives you more and options but it just doesn't compare to what you can play around with on an android phone. It's a lot more fun if you have the time for it. So let's get into it. Let's talk about specific phones. What are some of your top picks for this holiday season again. It really depends on who you are and what your needs are but for an iphone. I do like the iphone mini because of its size. I have small hands. So it's very attracted to me and like the iphone se because it's a because of its low price and for android phones. The galaxy s twenty f e is really affordable. Pick for the galaxy line. And i liked the oneplus eight because it's premium but it's competitively priced so let's dig into some of those phones the the galaxy s twenty f e which. I know we made fun of alive for the name. Initially fan edition actually ended up being pretty decent About what you get with it and why you know. That's that's a pretty decent deal. Among other phones out there. Well one is that it has five g and it has a great performance. And the although you know. The camera isn't as good as the s. twenty. Ultra the note. Twenty ultra It's a good price. I think it starts about seven hundred dollars and it's so much cheaper than some of the premium galaxy phones out there so it's something if you want that galaxy samsung the samsung galaxy experience. But you don't want to spend way too much. I think that is a good alternative. Also you can look into samsung's galaxy a series lineup phones. Like the eighth fifty one i think is one of the more recent ones those also kind of offer that that software experience a galaxy experience without a premium of a high price so beyond some of these head like his. You know you talked about samsung. Which is a well-known Are there any other handsome. Makers that are a bit more under the radar that offer phones. Maybe deserve a second. Look yeah. I don't. I don't have any official releases or deals specifically that i can say i always think. Motorola is such a great company for mid range affordable phones and throughout the holiday season. There moto phones do get a discounted and there are some carrier promotions to it. I would say keep an eye on those things especially if you don't want to spend a thousand dollars on a phone if you're looking for something it starts like two hundred dollars. An up. motorola makes a really solid aggressively priced phones. That if you don't really need all the premium features so if you just kind of use your phone to make calls the moti. Seven power is a good mid range phone with a big battery so you don't have to charge it and that would be a great pick for someone who's a little bit more straightforward with their needs at. Don't need a lot or grammy. It's black friday today. So i'm sure there are plenty of deals to go around beyond the motorola brand new. You mentioned one plus and that's another company. That is a little bit under the radar. It's not a household name tug a little bit about that in some of the options there. Yeah we're plus is definitely. They started out as an android enthusiasts brand. They've branched out in there a little bit more popular. Now you're right. They're not as popular will known as google and samsung. Their current flagship line is the eight. It's oneplus eight pro. Act it's a lot of phones year. They released like four And so that's kind of their higher end line. They just released their oneplus. Nord en ten. Five g That will be available in north america at a later date and that has five g And it's about. I think it's going to be about four hundred dollars. Give or take so that is something that you know. They've consistently released premium phones with great hardware at affordable pricing used to be more affordable from years past. Not so much anymore but it still. You know hundreds of dollars cheaper than samsung galaxy funds beyond one plus and samsung another company that surprisingly flies under the radar is google right. It's it's a big name company but the pixel phones. Have not exactly been blockbuster devices. I believe one of the pixel phone is on your list. You talk about which phone that google makes people should be looking at. Yeah so. I think you're talking about pick so four eight five g. I've consistently recommended that phone since its release i like it. Because it is more affordable than the five the pixel five which is its main flagship. But you get a lot of the same features it still has. It has the same camera as a five. So it has great. Low like Low light photos and it has a soffer support from google. And it's also has five g which is what differentiates it from the pig soul for a that was Also released so that would be all the pixel phones that were released this year. I do like the four eighty five g the most just because it's cheaper than the five but has many of the same features so most of those flagship phones we're talking about the pixel five twelve. They're they're eight hundred dollars closer to one thousand dollars. If you're looking to spend that much like you. Does anyone actually need to spend a thousand dollars on a new phone. I mean you can definitely spend that much if you want you know phones. That cost that much are usually faster. They have longer less batteries and have great cameras. But i feel like this year compared to last compared to yours past. We've seen so many great phones that are priced below thousand dollars. You could find something great for four hundred dollars to six hundred dollars. I do think. Fund companies were reactive to the spending behavior of twenty twenty and how people for being a little bit more cost conscious and they and they Reacted to that. With a appropriately priced phones. That have been way more aggressive but still have premium teachers. And what if you're shopping for kids or parents amid this may be the same line of conversation. But you know for for folks who don't necessarily need all those layers in bells and whistles of. Are there any other phones that you suggest for them. That may be even a step down from some of the ones you talked about earlier definitely as it again. A motorola makes a lot of inexpensive phone so i would look towards their e line of funds the moto e six i believe is you know starts at one hundred dollars and that's something that you can get unlocked By the way if you are giving phone as a gift. I do recommend buying an unlocked. Phone it's probably the quickest and easiest way to go about it since you just have to swap existing some card and you're ready to go so that would kind of with that line of phones. The moti line would definitely be something. I would look out for this. Holiday season is a phone. Even a gift anymore is that is that too personal of a device for you to go out and actually get for someone. I sure why not. I totally don't disagree with receiving a phone as a gift. I think it's perfectly as long as you go about it the right way. Make sure that's what they're it matches the needs that they want and And you look very closely at all the fine print in terms of carrier contracts and stuff like that. I think it would be a great gift.
How to Survive the Holidays Debt-Free
"Episode is a reboot from two years ago. But i think this message is just as important now. I know i have definitely had some money. Fomo and i have to make sure that. I am not making too many emotional purchases especially this time of the year so i do a couple of things i i said a few rules. If i know it's an emotional. Spend i give myself twenty four hours before i hit the buy button so i put the item in the cart away. Twenty four hours. And then decide if something. I really want to buy and i also allow myself. No more than two emotional spends per month with the cap on how much i can spend. You're probably thinking. Okay sean why go through. All of this will. it's simple. I just have a ton of money goals like you. And i don't wanna get trapped into fomo spending. We're all guilty of it. Though so my other rule is that this is a shame free zone. Let's just make sure fomo spending isn't are spending this holiday season. Okay onto the episode. Did you know that the average person takes on between three hundred eight hundred dollars in debt during the holidays. That might not seem like a lot. I could see where some people might take on more dad. Maybe some a little bit less but if it isn't paid off in a short period of time it could turn into even more dead not how the debt starts to snowball. And i think it's really more about the mindset behind all of this as well behind holidays you we get so riled up with the and all the stuff we've got a bye for co workers and friends and family and spouse boyfriend girlfriend mean he just gets crazy out of control but as our guest mosh from status. Money says how we hack. Our minds is really important to how we get ready for the holidays off pun. Intended here we got to get our game face on to win the war against holiday debt. So montage he's been on the podcast before but he's gonna show us how to breach the holidays without debt and also very interesting while using spending data from your peer groups might just be the missing link. You need to keep your budget in check. We're here to talk about the holidays. It feels like they're just rolling You know it's going to be holiday time before we blink are is seemingly and it's always stressful time. I know with a lot of listeners with their budget. I've had a hard time myself. I think we all have at times during the holidays trying to stay in budget. But i really wanna talk about you know. Are there ways that we can restore the holidays without racking up debt. How do we do this. I think we gotta hack our minds a little bit here during the holidays i get this urges. I'm sure most people do to be very generous and we want to be generous. And and how much we give and we want to be thoughtful gift But at the same time we have to be a little bit cautious about not overextending art though and you know this is kind of a place. Typical gift giving where. You're not sure you know how much you should spend your. You're not sure whether somebody's gonna get you an amazing gift and spend hundreds of dollars and and all you got them you know. Was you know keychain. So i i think We have to be very careful about looking at all the information that we have available And being very thrifty in in how we give people thoughtful gift. That is great. Because i know especially if you work in corporate environment and they do the gift giving exchange. There's always unless they set a limit you know. It's that gas guessing game of trying to figure out how much you spend do. I look like a cheapskate. If i don't spend enough for being too extravagant and we could do that. Certainly with friends and family to that's why so many people end up just giving gift cards but what do you think causes the biggest stress around the holidays and budgeting. Is it. just that we feel these obligations or is it that we kind of throw in all of our everything we know about money and we just start spending without even knowing how much we're spending. I do think a lot of people. Don't it's kind of like cheating on a diet. So you think well what the hell. It's the holidays right and And you spur splurge a little bit but then a little bit turns into a little bit more And before you know it it's january and you've got a lot of credit card bill pay

B. ports any USB ports and hidden cameras in the master bedroom like whoa what's up with that so you're born to check so a couple of things that you can do if you in your research I'm sure if you had commanded dot com you know I talk about how you should use a software program called and map each did you look at that I know and map as in Nancy yeah we'll post a link to this particular instructions step by step on how to use that would end up in map is really what the professionals use the in order for these cameras most of these cameras if they're going to be on the network is that they're going to show up if you start analyzing the network right so if you analyze the networking to see a whole bunch of things that look at a whack then you know that there's something going on and we'll tell you exactly what to look for to it's a software tool really primarily used by the techies in the keeps the week out there I mean you can listen for strange sounds you can turn off the lights use a laser pointer to scan the rooms and you know what you're looking for is any type of lens reflection a signal detector one of the ones that I like is it's made by a company called EDS it's Ellen my E. I L. I N. Y. will post a link to it over a commander dot com it's about sixty Bucks it's not a hundred twenty it out but it's not full proof so you want to make sure that you do your basic security precautions meaning like I mentioned look for sounds and checked reflections and you know start nosing around something looks out of place but it's even hard to tell something looks out of place if you look up top at the ceiling and you see a smoke detector that could be of wireless camera too but a lot of these cameras are now connected on wifi because whatever they're recording is now being stored directly up into the cloud but you do have a some cameras that record on SD cards thats why you wanna start nosing around moving things back and forth and if you want to travel with a good good good detector in our and signal detector that's what you want that we may be able to find these hidden cameras will post a link to it over and commander dot com in that show pics here and we always do that by the way just so that this way it's easy for you to find things and speaking of traveling and thank you for your call today Sir coming up we have a new middle seat designed to to airlines you're tired of sitting there and with elbows to elbows well the company out of Colorado of Molon robbery they say there can be corrected by staggering this is smart stuff three economy seats the middle seat just a few inches behind the I.

"I did and sure enough here I am but what a year and a half into this computer eater and I one hundred percents by that decision and even though it just got half the price I've still got a year and a half of use out of that four terabytes and I'm still happy I did yeah. It was a ton of money but you know so it was the rest of the computer and I decided that was worth it. This is not this is the macro world we're talking about. The MAC was exactly the same price twenty eight hundred dollars. That's why when you were saying earlier like no one knew what it was. I knew what it was. You didn't buy that. I might pro- yesterday might feel different if you that's true yeah but anyway away and I will before we leave this topic if you really should do but before I leave this topic I will reiterate a trick. I learned that I've been extremely happy with one of the biggest problems when you have limited storage like almost every laptop is the way photos doesn't really purge the pursuable space when you have it in like only keep small things mode like if you have it. Keep your whole photo library. You're on your own but if you like and that's how that's how I do my Max I just Kevin keep everything as I have the space for it but if you're on a computer that's a secondary when like your laptop or something where you only have apple photos keep like the small versions and offload things to the cloud it marks the space that it uses as Perjurdal but as John said the O._S. doesn't deal with that the way you think it will it doesn't it doesn't provide the controls that you need a lot of times you try to use the space is left and it doesn't purge it and so you can't use the space or whatever so it's a bit of a mess so what I did when I set up my motion laptop last summer. Was I put the photos library which you can you can move where that is. I put it on a sparse disk image. That has a size cap. I think I made it like thirty gigs something like that so assize cap of sparse disk image put in Logan items so the sparse disk image always mounts on logging. That's my apple photos library is and it obeys the disk quota of the sparse him as you put it on so my photos library is capped on my laptop at thirty gigs wchs no matter what I do it will make space what fits in at thirty gigs and then I don't have to deal with with intruding on the rest of my drive so that is by far the biggest like quality of life improvement that I've discovered covered for having a modern apple laptop with limited S._S._d.. Space I highly suggest everyone do that. It's a little bit scary..

Now, it's no secret that women are under-represented attack underrepresented in entrepreneurship and founders like yourself run into many challenges when trying to raise money in a male dominated venture capital community. But what is lesser known is that women who start companies that are not focused on women things like let's say fashion, or ecommerce are beauty? Have it even tough? For how have you overcome the challenges of, of, of raising money in a Silicon Valley community when you're focused on the military, when you're focused on a more sort of gender neutral, pursuit, let's say, yeah, I think that our technologies exceptional again. Eight helps people in the most high situations in life or death situation. And I think that the reason we've been able to succeed in spite of these additive, added bias, sees in Silicon Valley is precisely because the technology is so game changing, and it has also not just applications in the public sector. But if you believe in a future, where billions of things need to be connected to one another at all times, you're going to need a network, topology, that's mobile and low power low cost that's going to actually make that happen.

"Tars at eight hundred dollars and not just they won one. Screw that front. Had a blowout. Highway Korkut a flip. That's serious. Oh, that's awful. My granddaughter. Of course. So here's here's his bottom line. Surveillance camera with night-vision, install one of the local companies. Yes. And the only problem was the only one out forty feet core. I park about one hundred feet the bottom line here is that the alarm signal coming from my router is not strong enough to go beyond forty feet from my house. So I need something to go out at least a hundred feet park my car to I can find out his doing have a couple of options. First thing goes, one hundred do you have any do you need to have it done the recording done in real time live, so you can tap into it. No. I actually talked police. They said the ones that said you need to get this wherever's doing. I'm cam. Okay. All right. We can take over. I can tell who's doing. Okay. Couple of things to keep in mind. First of which is that I'm going to tell you about technology. That's not made for this. But it's actually really good to be used for this is that if you go to Cabela's or any of the big hunting stores or websites is that they sell cams that that you can fix to trees or to a poster and their camouflage. And these cameras are strictly to capture as you might expect wildlife because these are hunters. Okay. Their night vision technology is pretty darn good. But because they're made to capture wildlife the wildlife may be a hundred feet away one hundred fifty feet away. Right. So what you could do is for a couple of hundred bucks is in by Browning strike force. That's the one that I want you to take a look at its this. It's called Browning strikeforce. It's an eighteen megapixel trail camera. Okay. Okay. And it looks like it's all camouflaged. Right. And so that so that nobody will actually even see it. But what it doesn't it will record up to one hundred fifty feet away. But it records to an S D card. And so in the morning, you'll have to take the card out, or and you know, and then you'll be able to see what is your your other option is pretty expensive. Meaning that you could get a camera and the camera is connected to four G L T. And then so you can wirelessly remotely log in and see exactly what that cameras doing the benefit is when it detects any type of activity. You could get a text message or Email. Okay. So you have that has tremendous advantages over the trail camera, but the wireless camera with the service. You know, you're looking at maybe five six hundred bucks for the camera, and then thirty bucks a month for the service. Okay. So why was I the last place that she went to for help? So why was I? Believe right on the bus by all the companies at best buy actually stalled the camera on the side of my house thinking that lots of the car. Why they thought could. But only one out forty. That's my problem. I've been checking around is hard to believe with modern technology today. There isn't something that goes beyond forty from these cameras the cameras, but that's it. You know, you're just looking at the wrong type of camera. And so that's why that's why I preface this whole John with that. You know, this is a camera that you would not think of to be using in this particular situation when an actual -ality is probably the best solution because it's made for low light high resolution, and whenever activities triggered it's going to be saved on the built in card. People aren't even gonna see it check it out. I think you're probably going to find that. This is the perfect solution for you an time..

Oh, wow. And she said here chip, you can have because I know you use it still I don't use them anymore, and she became yeah. No. But it's messed up it shows you the system screwed up. Right. Nineteen of them. Right. I'll be dead by the time. We get to old. I only do like one puff a day. Right. But anyway, I look at that. And I think that so there's there's there's a system here that we have again in healthcare is the most obvious you don't want people worry about going to the doctor for a checkup because they can't afford it, you know, or their the poverty causes them to eat horrible. I tell people again, remember Flint, Michigan the bad water. The part of that story. A lot of people forget an city of one hundred thousand people they got one grocery store. So people are eating at these seven elevens and Popeye's and they're getting you know, high cholesterol or diabetes, and it's a ripple effect throughout their life. They make bad choices. It's one of those ironies to about how poor people tend to have more of obesity problems than people with money because they eat stuff with higher. You know calories and more fat and because the other stuff's not available. I mean what I I stop every night. And I eat at by my dinner at a whole foods, I buy, and it's it's been it's been you know, I mean, I'm fortunate I can do this. But it's been it's been sixteen seventeen eighteen dollars a night for food. Wow. Right. Allow cook. Well, by maybe some well. Yeah. Because it's just me in that little I I don't have a stove some. So like a stove I have like a hot plate thing. You know? Port a fortunate. But I'm all right. But so I have to work harder at it. You know? And I mean, I don't do that every night, but a lot. But I mean, some I'm I'm fortunate again, bring it up. I'm why I you know, and I it is different. It's a different world out there. I mean, if you go out, and you go, and you drive through cities like, I don't know. I mean, the suburbs to like Washington DC where I grew up in Prince George's county, where they gentrified most of the city, and they kick the black people out if DC used to be like a lot of these cities like seventy percent African American. I don't know what percentage they are now. But I want to say it's in the in the low forties, maybe even thirties, and it's it's expensive delivered ourselves. It's kind of like San Francisco where people are are just gradually over a generation. You know that does not if it happened all in one weekend. People will go. Oh, that's wrong. But if you wake up after about thirty years, and you go wait a second this neighborhood used to be, you know, have people of color. And now there's like twenty six year olds getting on Google buses in the morning. What's going on? Right. Anyway. Anyway. So that's Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty today. And do we have a sentencing guideline? I don't believe so, but she could get she could get four months. Yeah. Let me look here. Yeah. Yeah. Twelve her the she in twelve other people, including marketing guru, Jane Buckingham. I've no idea that is now seeing you have between four to ten months. Yeah. Yeah. Male show, mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. I don't know what that is. But yeah, they could go to jail, but they're not going to go to jail. The it's interesting when you look at this story, the thing that this Rick singer, the guy that put all this together. The thing that really bothers me the most in the story is really not even the parents. It's the coaches that took the money. Oh, yeah. You know? And then just because they were part of an on both sides of it. They kept legitimate kids off the team that really wanted to you know, that they worked hard their lives to be on a team, you know, whether it's crew or it's soccer. They're not going to trust. You know, how do you trust the system after that? You know, you work your butt off to get good grades. Do sports. Do all these things that colleges tell you have to do to get in. Oh, but be rich because that'll put to the front of the line. It's ridiculous. Well, you know, I mean there was a kid on a college team high school team that my son wanted to be on Indiana's San Diego when we moved there and one of the guys had a son on the team and he sat on the bench because he bought the team bus. He bought like seventy five thousand dollar bus. I don't know how much it cost. But sounds about right. Then the sound about right for a bus seventy five grand. Maybe more. Maybe. Yeah. The the kid got on the team. So they had like twelve kids there were only supposed to in their fairly I cal- athletics. You know, he he counted as a trainer, but he had a uniform, and he heard about that story and my son went to try to try out. And he said we got my I got my team. That's what he said to Alex, Alex is like, okay, you know. So he went to Torrey Pines just gave away the school. Anyway, I couldn't draw time, and but the other school he rooted for the other local schools against sports he'd sit on their side he school. So so that's you know, that's going to be one of those stories that will fade away, and it'll happen again, it might not even stop and someplace parents will do whatever they want to do to get their kids in. And I remember, you know, you know, Rothman, I made some interesting points about you do as much for your kids could and I've done everything for my kid. And I, but I know John. None of us would do this. Now, you're hurting your kid if you don't get in you learn how to deal with rejection. That's also the problem when you have too much money. There is a problem in this in this country in this society of have too much money. So that you don't know when to stop you, literally don't know when to stop when people, you know, I my wife, I'm married. She never buys anything. Go. Shop comes home. I didn't mind all the time. I'll go on out shopping with her to find something for her. I'll buy something she'll come home nothing. She doesn't buy anything new. She goes to like yard sales. And she she went to the Alameda thing this this weekend for is the first time they've had that in a month because every three months because every day that they're supposed to have the Alameda. Flea market. It's rained frigging rain. And now what's up with that? How come whenever I ask what the weather is. You always don't you? Listen to me, I've been listening to you. And you didn't mention this actually I haven't saying a widely lights widely scattered showers tonight. I've been saying that literally all day. I don't think you have run the take anyway.

"Eight hundred dollars a month from that. And I also receive social security, which I don't need so I- Bank, which is about four hundred dollars a month. Okay. My husband is only fifty four. So he's working. And our our household income is proximity eighty thousand dollars. We have a house paid off. So I don't really need this inheritance. And I'm wondering if I put some of that into my husband's 4._0._1._K, well he'd be allowed to do that. And what is the tax implication? Well, you can't do it directly. You can't just write them a check for it. But you could change the with how much he's taking out of his check every month. And then use this money to live off. So you can put he's fifty four you could put twenty five thousand in. Let's say puts in two thousand a month in. So he increases his his contribution by two thousand a month. If he's not if he's not doing it, which means this check is going to be shorter. Which means you don't have as much may I live off live off of this money because you're checking shorter that's the way to try to use it to get it. You can't just write a check. To put it in. But yeah. So the maximum how much does he already putting into his 4._0._1._K though? Doing the maximum if he's already doing twenty five thousand dollars, and you can't put more in. What are you doing Roth IRA's for either of you? Yeah. So you've maxed out those while you put in your well thirteen thousand last year for the two of you fourteen thousand this year for the two of you. Right. So we're not going to be able to put this money anywhere in tax preference environment. No, no, Roth IRA's, no tax, you know, no 4._0._1._K money because you've already maxed out putting money into those. Now, you can just, you know, invest, however, you want it's just going to be a personal investment. It's not money you need right now. So it's kinda presumably going to be needed. Maybe never in your life. Where for when you're really old maybe for healthcare when you're eighty years old ninety years old one hundred years old, and if not then then maybe just pass it on to the kids. And then that case you could invest it for growth equities and things of that nature, and you would look for. We don't have children. Okay. What do you want this money to do for you? Well, I wanted to be safe because you know, I don't want to invest in something wild. So I was actually thinking of CDs. But my husband thinks that's a bad idea. Doc. We have gold. We have silver. You know? So you've got everything and you don't need any of it. Because you're going to you're doing fine. The way you are as long as he's working. Now what happens when he stops working? Will he have a pension? Will you need to draw any money from your portfolio? He's got a 4._0._1._K that you know, he's contributing the max two so worse that there. Okay. So this money, though, if you were going to I would look at you have IRA's traditional IRAs anywhere. You only have Roth. So you just want to keep this money safe is what you're saying for some future. Use potentially down the line is that right, right? Right. You're not gonna earn very much, but you can put it in safety and learn two percent give or take here there. Now, he doesn't like you said your husband doesn't like CD's. What's he wants to get better better growth out of it? I'm assuming is that right? Yeah. He does. Because he you know, he feels that we could. Maximize it better. Well, if you don't need this money, and you don't expect to spend this money for fifteen twenty years. I side more with him. But it's your money. It's not his money. You inherited it, and you can keep it separate. And you don't have to take his instructions on this. Because it's all yours less you put out truth. And so you can do whatever makes you happy with it. And if what makes you sleep the best at night is a guaranteed account. Then that's a pretty good deal for you. From what you're telling me. You don't need this money to grow like a weed over the next five or six years to enable you to retire. It's going to happen anyway. So this is kind of extra realistically, you can do whatever you want with it. If you're looking at it from that where there are things that you could are you willing to lock it up for a couple of years, or do you want it to be totally liquid at any moment? I was going to do half and a three years CD and the other half and a one year CD. You could use. He never know what's going to happen with your health or your patient. You know? I'm not arguing on that point. At all. You might use a fixed annuity that gives you a little bit better return than the CD. That's about it. Yeah. You can probably get three percent on that. Where you may only get two point eight five on the CD. I mean, it's not a big deal. If that doesn't matter to you, then it's kind of six and one half dozen of the other. All right. Yeah. So much. Hey, you're welcome. I thank you, Arlene. Yeah. You can't really have growth that her husband wants, you can't really have safety that she wanted to save at the same time. You're going to have to kind of pick one or the other and she wants it and tied up no longer than three years that's kind of a constraint for growth as well. Now, she did she asked him in the 4._0._1._K or you had brought her she she wanted to know if she could put this money into his 4._0._1._K because if you put it in his 4._0._1._K, I mean, you're tying it up. The theoretically, if it's his tying it up plus years, so you know, and plus it's subjected to the whims of the market. I would assume unless you do something fun. But, but it's not available to do that, you know. No, he's already maxing out the contribution to the 4._0._1._K. You can't doing if he had not been contributing the 4._0._1._K we see this happened a lot where somebody inherits fifty thousand dollars. And they said, well, I want to put it into the 4._0._1._K. Well, they can't put it indirectly. But. You can use it over the next two years.
