Greg Elfrink - How To Create And Sell Your Own Media Empire
"So when you're when you're seeing someone 'biocyte. I'm kind of curious because he's probably pointed to the seller. Sometimes it's a more of an advance or sorry. The buyer felt like an fbi site because they see the opportunity. Someone did all the hard work of creating the website finding the products. Maybe figuring out what's working what's selling what's not like. What are some things that you're seeing sellers do with a website that on empire flippers. Like are there certain things that they're looking for. Is it like that. where they're like. Oh they did all the work for me. I'm gonna pay for that because they can saved me years of work in heartache to figure all this out like can you know prep yourself for that in a way as a seller. Yeah you're asking. What can i do to help. A buyer seed at their web site. Is that shortcut. Yeah that in the motivations of a buyer yes so they can kind of sync up in the right spot and you know get the valuation yet. This is a very good question. Because i i always Both buyers and sellers so if you ask a seller like why are you selling your business like almost one hundred percent. The fans like i want money vic big vol but that's usually not the real answer right there. That's the superficial answer. Then you dig deeper. They're like oh. I want to do other projects and like okay. Let's dig deeper. You peeling back the onion a bit. eventually filed like. Well i want to focus on other projects. Take less than my time. Because i'm moving to this new house and selling this Business allows me to make this down baby in the house for my new family. And now you're getting to the emotional reason right. So whenever a talk to buyers and sellers say dig deep find out who the buyer seller is copywriting. One we all do like everyone listening to this podcast of the market price familiar with copywriting right but for some reason when you go to buy or sell busy like take the copywriting Just like throw it in the trash like. I don't need that anymore. Businesses success but like the buyer seller. Is your customer right like that is your customer. You need to think about their own motivation. So when it comes through selling thinking about a buyer we recommend Or at least i recommend the seller jagger our buyer persona content. So there's about six of them and they all very different motivations for example a newbie norm. If you've you know you're seller dealing with someone who is a newbie norm. Someone's brand new to the space like that doesn't necessarily mean they don't have business document or money they're just new to online business acquisition. They're probably going not have as much confidence. And so you're going to have to hold their hand a little bit more and that's okay For the seller. Payoff like yes. You might have to hold their hand a little bit more but when you give them a quality business you might have. Effectively changed their entire trajectory of their life in a positive way. Because like maybe knows just starting out and that's always going to be the biggest pool buyers talking to because there's always more people coming in right versus say like a investor yvonne who that would be more of your brand aggregate or someone who's raised millions of dollars to acquire businesses. Obviously their motivations going to be a lot different. And if you're a seller like say you're a amazon. Fda entrepreneurs does example works really well with And you have a one product business. So one hundred percent revenue comes from a single ecommerce product on amazon. Most buyers don't like that look at that and they're like darris seems soup. Exactly right like whoa. Because it's a two hundred thousand dollars of single skew like But an investor ivan. Not risky at all to them. They don't care. They'll buy one product businesses all day long because they raise millions of dollars. A your five hundred thousand dollar eight hundred thousand dollar. Even three million dollar one product business one hundred k. to them as long as it meets their other strict criteria cousin to them is not as risky. Because of all acquisitions are doing right. So this is these are important things to know as a seller going into who am i dealing with For things you can do before you ever sell is ask yourself like would i buy this business like just be honest with yourself would i like. Does this seem like a good deal. Why why does it seem like good deal. You start interrogating yourself. And if you're really honest with yourself There will probably be some answers. The actually seems like not a good deal away. Now i know. How do i fix it. Like how do i make this a good deal for myself right so you always like sellers are obsessed with evaluation for obvious reasons. There's a second. Part of selling a business called attractiveness so some sellers they'll be like Like say you're running this huge media site this You know michigan. Thirty thousand dollars a month affiliates. I and you have this bad ass team writers. Va's as all this all these systems and processes set up in the first thing the so as things like andrei increase my valuation by firing. My old team get rid of that expense. That's valuation boost right. But then the buyer cousin sees all the work that has to be done to maintain this business. He sees you working seventy hours a week. He's just going to discount. You're like hey. I'm going to eat iot. I'm going to hire a team. So i need this for a lower price because the net profit is going to be lower right so you almost get like no benefit for doing that. I always tell sellers like yes valuations imporant that think about. How can i make this business attractive as well. Now right now would you. Would you recommend people go and start a site from scratchers now. A good time to go. Try to find like a site that needs a little bit of love by the site. Flip it and make your multiple. Like what sort of path are you kind of recommending people. Go down if they want to get into this world. Yes so if you're just starting out. I probably wouldn't recommend buying I think it's good to get your feet wet with building. That is a long game. So you don't you don't need to build something until it's profitable. You should be building something to where you're comfortable with the system. So that's the important thing i always like. If you wanna go fast always recommend buying something and if you have some skills. I think it's really good to buy something. That doesn't look great on the outside or even on the inside right like you want to buy other people's problems it's very similar to real estate investing right like if you if i buy a house. That only has like cosmetic issues and smells terrible. No one wants to go in it right. I basically get the smell of discount by the south thirty thousand dollars. I painted to cover smell or whatever and now it's worse as sixty eighty thousand dollars. I just built all this equity for very little right so you. When you're buying it online business you want to look at it in the same way especially once you have skills now if your brand new buying online business. I probably wouldn't recommend buying too many problems because he probably don't have solve them if you're brand new to buy dot go like get this amazing deal because there's a site with us google penalty that's been banned from all its affiliate programs. Like you know you don't want to hunt for like the deal. You're almost always going to be better off buying a high quality business for fair value. Like that's always going to be better at least until you get some skills then you can look at doing this like discount. I call it by business. A discount right. You're looking for these problem of businesses problems like But that's what i recommend. So you wanna go fast. Buying is one hundred percent way faster than building because you already have all the data and you can do all this. Low hanging fruit stuff like cro on page optimization new content taking advantage of the high domain rating on the website. Right all of. You can't do your first starting out site ray like if you put The split testing software. Vw show up on your your ten page affiliates. I was one visitor. Burma like you're not going to change. You know you don't have a lot to work with yet. so

A Japanese Robotics Startup Has Invented a Smart Mask That Translates Into Eight Languages
"Everyone has gotten in on the mask game. It's more surprising to find a brand that isn't making their own masks than ones that are some places are going beyond slapping a logo on a piece of cloth however, and are innovating in really cool ways that will help us out as mask wearing becomes a long term thing like the various companies and individuals who have been working on fully or semi transparent masks so that the deaf and hard of hearing can read People's Lips. Another is a Japanese startup who wants to make masks even more functional and useful. They have made a mask that can translate into eight languages. DONUT robotics created the see face smart mask that with the help of its corresponding APP transcribes and translates what the where is saying. It also amplifies their voice, which I think is really cool. I. Don't know if masks actually muffle people's words this much. If I just relied on lip reading and facial expression context more than I thought I did because I have a heck of. A time understanding people in masks, the see face smart mask works by using a microphone embedded into the mask which connects to the wearer's phone via Bluetooth available languages for translation are Japanese and Chinese Korean Vietnamese Indonesian, English Spanish, and French. The mask does have one fatal flaw. However, it doesn't actually offer protection from the corona virus and is meant to be worn over a more suitable mask, and this is because the mask itself is made out of plastic and silicone. So it has to have some breathing holes bell suit suffocate. Which I get, but the does seem to sort of negate part of the point of having it as a mask. The translation software in the mask was originally designed for a robot named Cinnamon, but the team at donut robotics decided to pivot to. Win The pandemic hits and that to me makes it seem like having the translation tool be inside the mask is maybe not necessary, and since it doesn't work as an effective mask anyways what are we doing here but I am not an engineer and also it sounds like the company pivoted because they got hit hard by the pandemic and needed a way to stay afloat. So they leaned into a trend that they knew would work the. Cinnamon robot stood out from competitors because it was user friendly and the translation software even worked well in noisy environments and that software reincorporated into the mask quoting CNN uses machine learning developed with the help of translation experts and specializes in the Japanese language. Don't robotics CEO to Sukey. Ono claims the technology is better than Google API or other popular technologies for Japanese language users because most competitor APPs focused on translating to and from English and quotes. The company has run two successful crowd funding campaigns to get the product off the ground raising the equivalent of about eight hundred, thousand dollars from those campaigns and the plan to start distribution in Japan by the end of the year releasing five to ten thousand masks at forty to fifty dollars a pop. And while there has been interest from both the US and the UK, they don't expect to expand overseas until spring twenty, twenty, one at the earliest. But I am sure that plenty of other startups will be working on other cool masks with similar useful features. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

"Boyle. Grew. Columbia sportswear into a downfield powerhouse is the third Nar five-part series on the origin stories of iconic companies. We originally aired this episode about boils legacy after she died last. November, let's listen back. She was one tough mother and proud of it. Gert Boyle, the ninety five year old Chairman of Columbia Sportswear died earlier this month since then accolades poured in for boil, she was a formidable funny icon of the outdoor apparel world notorious for her resilience and her toughness qualities that empowered her to guide Columbia from near bankruptcy in the early seventies to what the New York.

He changed the name to the Columbia hat company. Columbia evolved from hats to outdoor year including a fishing vest that Gert than a homemaker raising three kids designed. Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it. But when the buyer a man offered, only fourteen hundred dollars she custom out and slammed the door in his face wrote Doug Schnitt span who profiled her for outside magazine. Gert said for fourteen hundred dollars.

She had tim dressed in Columbia's famous three layer system. Walk through a car wash. Her favorite one was one in which she drove a Zamboni on a hockey rink. Right over her long suffering son dressed in Columbia gear. Of course, he was lying the ice breathing through a straw.

Mother ads are credited with transforming a little known business into a household name inside the company. Her wit was also on display. She summed up her guidance for other leaders. This way early to bed early to rise work like hell and advertise. She might have added and work like hell. Until the day you die, she made it to the office on her ninety fifth birthday in March and was still having business discussions shortly before her death on November third according to outsides Schmidt's Pon. Gert Boyle will be remembered for many things among them, her belief which she shared often with younger women that a woman could do anything and also her conviction that older workers are assets in the workplace. Indeed, in her nineties, she wrote perhaps my presence in the office offers a message that managers liked to put older workers out to pasture. Out. To lunch.

Big Tech Funds a Think Tank Pushing for Fewer Rules. For Big Tech.
"Dig. Tech firms are schmoozing regulators into to not doing their jobs. Thirty four anti-trust officials were wined and nine last year by the global anti-trust into the suit, a part of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George. Mason University in Fairfax Virginia basically don't regulate us. Please enjoy this delicious meal. Global Antitrust Institute is funded mostly entirely by big companies affiliated foundations including Amazon Google qualcomm George Mason I covered it when I was at the Washington, Post they were always doing this kind of thing like putting up, you know. Being very friendly to corporate corporate citizens as I recall during this time when they were just getting started. Trying to attract a bigger level of professor there and so talk about this Mr Academics in terms of these things that get funded at universities, you institute Scott. Galloway Institute of Jabal Thank for example. That's right. like it's it's were. Universities are not immune from the lure of capitalism and a big component of. Your ability to get tenure is to get research funded, and it's difficult if you WANNA know. If. You WanNa. Know the outcome and a conclusion of research. Just find who's paid for it. Yeah, and in the case of most academic research. It's a lot of times it's funded. By nonpartisan sources are the university itself, and so if there is a a lease bad version of peer reviewed research, you're GONNA. Find it typically universities, but these think tanks if they're funded by. Certain And we have him on the left care we fund. We found groups to do research to basically support our know our narrative so i. don't think this is anything unusual. The question is abound power in that is. In addition to this think tank Sarah now more fulltime Amazon. Lobbyists making I would bet somewhere between four hundred eight hundred thousand dollars a year. Then there are sitting US senators now one hundred full time lobbyist from Amazon living in DC, taking all of these nice women and men to to golf into dinner and saying hey, we just a big fan of your leadership. We fight to get involved in your campaign by the way when this whole antitrust off comes up. We assume that you're you're for capitalism. Your four consumer lower consumer prices. And this is the danger, but I don't think these think tanks. We have on both sides nervous now whenever I time talking to one today and I was like Oh, where did you get your money? Like I never thought this like in terms of. The university and I was like I'm going to have to check in case, I'm. Saying something that sounded reasonable, but it was sort of like who's paying your bills and you know there was some controversy around some of this Kobe testing of where these these researchers have, it just feels like a lot of steph feels. Bogus like. It feels bogus when they're doing this and they're trying to influence, but I think many some universities are doing real research. Others are much more pay for play and I think that's that's really when I was a does. You've inspired her synapse farmer talking about this when I was? Five years into my Nyu Kerr invited me to a meeting where they were talking about doing some research about around financial markets and the impact on IPO's and They admitted meeting. And there was someone from the Nasdaq, and they were willing to fund it Funds Research and fund even fund center, and as one of the guys in the meeting Professor Bruce Buchanan who I think's one of the clear blue flame thinking economists in the world you know at the end of the meeting, said a not comfortable with the Nasdaq taking money. Money from the Nasdaq for research around the financial markets, because ultimately we're. GonNa end up saying that that the Nasdaq has the right you know. He just wasn't comfortable with private enterprise being injected into academic research, and then the meeting ended and I was like what the hell are you thinking? We have an opportunity to go great research here. Don't so pedantic. And as I've thought about it I'm wrong and he was right. Yeah, you can't help it. You can't help, but if they're paying for like all the smoking ones so much damage in terms of like smoking wants. We're like cigarettes aren't bad. That went on for a long time and Whatever the whatever the research is, it just seems like if it's cooked, it's cooked then. How do you pay for like the university should presumably just pay. Pay For right and live and die on the quality of the research, but that's sort of naive. I suspect you in the majority of about any sort of fifteen year overdue apology to a Professor Buchanan Vice. Chancellor Ingo Walter felt the same way that this was just. This creates too much opportunity for bias research so anyways. Net Net in it's a sample size of one, but Nyu takes that got role being a neutral arbiter very seriously. and. You have these funding you know. I'm thinking of all the different organizations are they seem like the like their criminal justice stuff Very Friedman! It feels like it's really good research right now, and that's the thing it's like who you have. They should at least be very clear about who's paying for it, so you know and and what they might turf. What what the what reports they might put in the drawer like the government is doing right now,
How to do a Daily Marketing Stand up
"Welcome to a another episode of marketing. School I'm Eric. Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GONNA. Talk about how to do a daily marketing standup so I think it's I good to understand what a stand up means in the context of what we're talking about at least. What I used to work tech companies or startups being in the past. We would always have this daily stand that where we would share what we did yesterday. What we're working on today and then anything were blocked on. Maybe how are feeling as well, but we do this every day and sometimes we might have an issue to solve at the end of it, which might? Might take five to ten minutes. If it takes longer than that, what will happen is generally put that into a longer meeting or just meet separately on it right, but the important thing is the communication that you're getting by interacting with other people especially when you're a smaller size, you WanNa make sure people are on the same page to have that alignment moving forward especially. Especially because a lot of us are remote right now, so let's go for example because you do daily. Stand up straight rocketing I. DON'T I'm curious how you, too. So I know with your agency accelerator. You're doing daily stamps right now. Right correct though resolve. Why don't you breakdown agency accelerator is, and it doesn't matter what Eric is doing. Marketing for the same type of. Of standup approach cause a little bit biased because i. know what he's GonNa end up saying either way. The same thing will work for any type of business, but once you first start off with what is your agency accelerator and then once you do that? Let's dive into what you guys are doing on a daily basis for stand up. Yeah, so our agency accelerator is. Is a coaching program for anybody that's trying to start or scale. There are services business, so it could be a coaching consulting agency type business because we've done it, not only me but I also take wisdom from other agency owners such as such as Neil. So that's what the program is, and that generally will run, either that could be a five hundred feet or could be. Be a monthly fee about about four figures a month, so it is a higher ticket. Offer now what we're doing with that Neil. I don't know how deep you want to go, but the reason we have a daily stand up is because we're running ads for, and we're just starting to wrap it now. We're still in the early stages of scaling it as we try. TRY TO FIGURE OUT PRODUCT MARKET FIT, but we need these daily stand ups. Make sure we're on the same page so so if you weren't doing ads, he's still do daily. Stand ups. No actually hate daily. Stand ups because it's an interruption of my day. You know like I'm pretty sure we equally hate phone calls I. Don't mind like off the cuff phone calls, but But I don't like having the set meeting every day at nine nine am for fifteen minutes just like there, so I hate it, but it's necessary. Okay, so for your daily. STANDUP, I agree with you in most teams. You don't really need a daily. Stand up unless you're doing. Ads or things are changing really rapidly because if you do daily, stand up and things aren't. Aren't changing like you're not doing ads. You're not trying to scale. You're just. GonNa wasting time, but if you are doing ads, especially for trying to scale daily standards are very useful, because the last thing you want to do is have been burned way too much money, and then lose arm and a leg. So what do you end up covering in your daily stand ups and And is there any difference in your stamps? Depending on the day of the week that it is because I know you don't have daily stance on a Saturday and a Sunday. Yeah, good call so Mondays. We operate off this book called Traction, which is the entrepreneurs operating system? That's a ninety minute meeting on Mondays. So that's a lot more involved were we'll talk about scorecards? Scorecards we'll talk. About will identify issues. We'll talk about customer play veteran headlines. There's a lot packed into that ninety minutes, but from Tuesday to Friday we have these fifteen minute meetings and everyone will go through the format. I gave you earlier. How are you feeling? What did you get done yesterday? Where you working on today? And what do you blocked on? Those are fine. Fine and if someone is blocked, were generally tried to tackle it together or else will move it off line that we covered earlier. The most important thing I would say to call here from a marketing perspective if you're running ads is we use a program called super metrics, and we have a scorecard that we're looking at daily right so the most important thing for us. US The top of the funnel metro that we look at like a hawk is the creative meaning we look at the click through rate the most we have very specific metrics were tracking daily. HOW MUCH YOU'RE SPENDING! What's our average frequency? Click the rates all the key metrics, and then if any metrics are read, so we have a traffic, light system, red, yellow and green, if If, anything is off the goal. Three days in a row will stop the meeting right there. Let's say okay. What's the issue right here? And let's put out a solution, and then we'll come back to solution, and we put that into us on us, so that's the high level. What's the biggest thing that you've learned from doing your daily stand ups? Yeah I think the. The biggest thing like I mentioned earlier is having that sense of alignment the one thing I can share his new. When you and I were both in Florida before the craziness happen I met with the people over Agora, and they said the biggest secret to their success. What they think is that they are very good at communicating sharing data amongst all their organizations, but. But I think the fact that we're all looking at it and we're all align like Oh, man, there's something wrong to create of. What can I do to help were jumping on it versus waiting a week I. Think the cadence and the sense of urgency. Is there especially when we're? We're not even spending like a lot right now. We're just starting to. We're learning enough. Eight hundred thousand dollars a day. We're looking to wrap it obviously, but that's a decent amount where we should be at least tracking because we're. We're getting ready to wrap

Elizabeth Warren Has Reversed On Super PAC Support: "That’s How It Has To Be"
"Everyone on this stage except Amy in may is either a billionaire or is receiving help from pacs that can do on limited spending so if you really want to live where you say and put your money where your mouth is and say no to the packs there was a bit of warm packs are bad and now the next two weeks later she's accepting money from a super pac it's called persist pack remember you know that comes from from Mitch McConnell being in no way did was with one's big decorum on the Senate floor say he said yeah and yet she persisted and then of course she takes as a rallying cry I NG persisted yeah that's me I persisted and ever since then it's been Elizabeth Warren special now persist pack is here and they place eight hundred thousand dollars in pro Warren ads into that as media markets come up ahead of these caucuses on Saturday so hypocrisy I name is Warren ends so in talking about packs in general so there's a lot of discussion about whether or not taking money from super pacs is good or bad Democrats talk about this a lot I am for super pacs I am for money and politics and money in elections it's important because guess what happens when people can't give their money to a pack and pulled out money for a cause or a candidate they care about you wind up with someone like Mike Bloomberg who can buy an election so I think Mike Bloomberg is a perfect example of why we want super pacs because super pacs allow people to pull money to help causes in Canada they care about or why not just lift contribution limits on candidates and let that I would be fine with that as well and let the candidates just take all the money and have public disclosure of where the money's coming from and this is where if it cracked I am for that as well what what I dislike is when candidates come out such as Elizabeth Warren that think that if they put all these regulations on a campaign money and campaign giving that somehow that's gonna limit corruption of some sort it doesn't it doesn't now I think things should be transparent people should have to say okay here's how much I gave right that information out there but all you're doing is shifting how people can work the system a Mike Bloomberg is working the system pretty well yeah no he definitely is because there's no cap on course on how much you can personally spend on your own election but this this move to take money from super PAC S. directors such a scam because it's so funny I have you I don't know how often you see this but like what would candidates will do to circumvent super PAC roles because you're not supposed to technically coordinate between your campaign and the super pac but it's really easy if you're super back to be like okay what's the message of the campaign you just look to the ads were the messages that the candidate is Sir it's spreading and then you make your own as that fit precisely within the contours of what they're advocating right so you're on the same exact message based on their public statements the other side of it is have you noticed that in the past you have candidates that would post I forget the name of the candidate is done is I've seen this before the record hours of footage hours of footage with the Canada just like answering questions or nodding thoughtfully in front of the building as you know it we call this bee role in advertising for you you take you cut to footage it's not like the person just talking directly to the camera it's like just stop if filler frontage of like Elizabeth Warren contemplative way nodding as she listens to a union worker and then what the campaign will do is the record hours of this fetish and then just posted to YouTube with like a really boring title but not the kind of thing that's designed for anybody else to watch what is designed to do is to be a public pass through said that the super pac can go on the stand all the footage and create an advertisement of its own using campaign resources but not technically coordinating is just a written ticket was arrangement but these are the way people this is the way that various campaigns circumvent the rolls around super pacs and so when she was knocking super pacs I thought that that was a good principal position to have despite the fact that she lacks principles on a bunch of other things but now she's even lying about that now she's taking super pac money well talking about how people circumvent or skirt the system even Bernie Sanders has a big money group called our our revolution it's similar to a pack it's able to raise unlimited sums of money on his behalf but since it's a nonprofit it's not considered a super pac it does have to disclose its donors so what you're finding in worse it's even worse because there's no transparency and who is giving so people all these candidates even though they're going to a claim that money is the problem find their ways to get money even the Bloomberg attack in the debate talking about Bernie Sanders homes how many homes you have three home it is it is I gotta give merry Walter credit for that she says all the time have Pachter see is their superfood because you've got a situation where they'll on on this on stage say that we have six years left that was burning this week six years left before climate catastrophe and then he gets into his private jet Li's Vegas shut up it's nonsense it's this is it the the way that they are conducting themselves is out of control Bernie who's advocating for a complete takeover of by the government of the healthcare system his surrogates are arguing to moderate Democrats don't worry vote for him because he won't actually achieve that there's a real argument a she's been among people is that you know Congress is just too difficult to get the stuff there anyway so I feel comfortable voting form is this thing you're worried about those union workers losing their health care not gonna happen this is what they're trying to placate the culinary union and in in a vat of that way this is Saturday and Elizabeth Warren she lied about her heritage she's lied about being you know being a working pregnant mother getting fired and now she's lying about super pacs and by the way I don't think she's changed her website yes saying that she will not take super PAC they got

"How do you deal with cold email pitches now. These are people you've never heard of people that you haven't built a relationship ship with having met them at a conference in our friend. They're just pitching you. The guy your email somehow through the interwebs on something they want okay. That's the bottom they want something. That's why they're emailing emailing you. The guest posts they want to invest. They want to be a partner. They want to be an affiliate. No problem with cold emails is that there's a lot of reading to do. There's a lot of filtering to decision making to do and at the star I used to read every single email. I used to reply personally. I should go back and forth. It's not the first replies the problem. It's the constant Johnson replying back in that thread even when you politely say I'm sorry not right now. It's not a good fit they'll go back and insist and it's just back and forth when out continue to reply which will fuel that conversation again and it was endless and I was wasting so much of my day dealing with cold emails because I wanted to be a good good person and I wanted to be polite and I thought this was the only way I'm here to tell you. It's not the only way and if you want to solve this once and for all this is what you have to do you have to hire out for it and it's not that hard. You actually need to hire an executive assistant. You've been a part time one. Somebody who's going to spend ten twenty hours a week on this task and maybe some others that you want to get off your plate and depending on where you hire them from in custody as low as four hundred to eight hundred thousand dollars a month so also worth it now even if you hire part time just to take care of this. This will be a game changer for you. You'RE GONNA gain back so much time find out. How much of your time is worth. If you're going to hire somebody part time for four hundred dollars a month and you're spending ten hours a week on cold. Emails is your time worth more than ten dollars an hour. I sure hope so so then make the investment now. What is this executive assistant. What does this virtual assistant going to do. They're going to create a standard operating procedure for each type of email each type of cold outreach if they're trying to be a guest on your show your podcast then they're going to have a procedure for that. They're going to create one for you. They're going to create a form that this person would have to fill in order to even qualify to be on the show that alone is going to lead a whole bunch of people people and if you want an example of that form checkout one zero zero. Mba Dot net slash apply to teach. That's our form forget teachers and you could see what we require. You're now hiring out for this is going to save you a lot of headaches one because you're going to somebody who's got a document procedures for everything. Somebody's reaching out to guest posts. Somebody's reaching enough for your time for a coffee investors whatever it is they're going to create the procedure and they're gonNA do for you. They're going to reach out say hey. I'm so and so I. Mo Mars Assistant If you're interested in guest posting the first step is to fill out this form. This gives us an idea if we can accept her ghostbuster not or if you don't don't accept guest posts they can just say hey almost assistant at this time. We're not accepting guest posts. Thanks for your interest and you don't even touch it now. What does this mean this means. You have to give access to your inbox your assistant. If you don't WanNa give impersonal access your personal inbox. That's totally fine. You can create a different inbox and make sure all increase get sent to their meaning that we're you have your contact link at the bottom of your website that that links up to the email. Oh you're giving the assistant worst case scenario. If things get mixed up you can always forward the email inbox that they have access to whether it's contact at Your Business Dot Com or support at Your Business Dot Com. The point here is you should not be wasting time with this you need to do brings is in the revenue for Your Business. This is Dan Martell calls ten dollars tests which is broken down worth ten dollars. An hour is ten dollars asks. You should be working on one thousand ten thousand dollar tasks the things that bring in the big bucks hiring the right people so they can improve your product and improve your marketing and all that stuff so hiring out is the best solution in two dealing with cold emails. Let them filter it out. If the person that's reaching out has something of value that is in the line with of your values what you need your assistant filter that out for you presented to you. Hey we have three people there. They're offering this. They can give you a nice summary on a call nice and easy and and yet. I'm happy to speak to that person for ten minutes on a video call. That's worth ten minutes of my time that person no just get back to politely say not at this moment so so much simpler so much easier and you could focus on making your business better and not these adleman tasks. I wish I can give you some sort of tool or automation. Russian or some sort of software that can take care of this but this is the best way to deal with this professionally and personally with an assistant is going to cost you nothing in compared to what what you're gonNA save and time and effort and headaches don't do what I did at the star where I answered every single email myself. I thought I had to know you. Don't you're assistant. Anybody on your team is an extension of you. They are getting somebody who is going to handle their inquiry. You're not ignoring them. If they're a good fit you will speak to them

Canada Goose shares plunge on revenue miss and outlook cut
"If yesterday was all about payment technology, and it was today is all about retail. And we've got earnings and I'm putting earnings in air quotes because there's a lot of red out there today. Let's start with Canada goose, which is the maker of outerwear and Benson jackets. I own this on the stock just got cheaper the stock just got cheaper and let me just say a lot Canada. To anyone listening, please ignore any headlines. You see about Canada goose fourth quarter adjusted prophets being higher than expected. Because none of that matters revenue was weak. And the company said it expects a now I'm quoting materially larger losses in the current quarter. Well, this is this actually that that's not really very shocking. I wouldn't call revenue week. It was still pretty good growth. The, the problem here is there. Always surpassing estimates. They missed the estimates by Wapping eight hundred thousand dollars. Stocks down twenty five percent or close to it right now. So that is a bit of an overreaction, but it's understandable revenue was up twenty five percent, and that's in Canadian dollars, and I can't remember how Canadian dollars compared to real dollars these days, but we'll do things in Canadian dollars since that's what I have in front of me. And they said looking out that, well, this was slowest revenue growth in several quarters. But this is not really that crazy. They sell expensive jackets and you can't grow forty percents every quarter forever. You know, you start you get a bigger base in that growth becomes harder to achieve now the material larger losses in justed operating earnings and net. Income are also really nuts. Not a surprise because they have been building out, a small small butts, but larger retail footprint. And so you talk about quarters where you're not selling as much product mostly, they still sell in Ohio end jackets. So when you're selling less product, but you have a bigger footprint in your putting the pedal to the metal on on systems to support that footprint. You end up with more losses in the quarters where you're not gaining the revenue. None of this is to say that this is awesome news. I'm I'm not excited about it as a shareholder. But I'm not really all that worried. This is a company that was trading at a premium. So this is not unexpected. But I don't think this is a signal for the end. So let me get to the math for second because while you were chatting, I just use the Google machine one coalition one, Canadian dollar equals basically seventy five cents in the US, so eight hundred thousand dollar loss. That's just a shade under six hundred thousand. Dollars. So you, you really look at this stock down twenty five twenty six percent and you think to yourself. This seems like a little over reaction. I would have expected something more line of like ten fifteen percent. But what do I know people are worried about a lot of stuff today? We've got the trade war continuing to go on in many other retailers are kind of stinking it up. We've got a couple of you know, we've got an we're gonna talk about Abercrombie aren't we is this a is this transition? Is this what's known in the biz is a transition also down around twenty twenty five percent of we can. But let me just say one last thing with Canada goose, which is I mean this stock with the drop today is basically where it was a year ago. Yeah. So it it has visited lots of interesting places in between now. It's sort of mid thirties today. I was near a double not long ago. Yeah. I didn't sell it because this is a stock that came to me when I was in New York City, everybody was wearing these jackets or knockoff version. But even the dudes carrying noodles. Out of the dumpling shop, that I like. So these aren't folks who make a ton of money their, their delivery dudes on vikes. They were buying the actual candidate goose jacket because they didn't wanna freeze. It was really cold at that point in time, I came back, I started looking into, you know, reading reviews of the jackets, even the dirtbag gear magazines were they frown on sort of boutique expensive stuff. Their attitude was, you know, it kinda hate to admit it because he's really expensive, but they really are a step above. So if you've got the money this is what you should go for. And then I started looking at the financials, I thought this was worth an investment to me. They're doing a good job, but it's always been high price stock. And if you be can't hurdle that earnings estimate for the first time in a while everyone freaks out.

"eight hundred thousand dollars" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio
"Five six eight hundred thousand dollars of traditional accounts over to because heck their stock market was going up twenty five percent of. A year. It was a huge was conservative back. Then there is wrong. And they paid the taxes felt really good about it ninety eight then the ninety nine tax return. They weren't feeling quite as well. Because when does it ninety nine return give out about April of two thousand and what had happened just before? But they were still happy because it hasn't gone down very much by the nine thousand return, which is filed in two thousand one they were not happy. They were paying taxes on money that no longer existed. No undue button at that point. No, there wasn't undo button. This this thing that I converted. It was it was eight hundred thousand dollars is now worth three hundred thousand or who knows what it was perverting paying tax on four hundred of it. And I've got two more installments to pay tax on two hundred thousand more now and two hundred thousand more next year. Right. So anyway, that's how those things got started. But the Roth IRA still was a good idea and still to to do Roth conversions can be a really good helpful financial tool to have they can work in a lot of people say now, it was a lot easier to do the conversions when we had an undue button. The we had that with IRA's for a long time right up until about a year ago. Yeah. Now, we have no undue, but Roth 4._0._1._K's never had the converted from 4._0._1._K to traditional to Roth. We've never had an undue button there. But now, we don't have an undue not any conversion. No, you don't. So you got to know what you want to do as far as a convert? Goes. You got to know that this is what you wanna do. So this is where the planner I think comes into existence once again, and maybe able to offer some advice. So we're going to be talking today about Roth IRA's about raw 4._0._1._K's about traditional IRA's versus Roth IRA's, we're going to give you once again sort of a primer. A just a little overview on exactly what they are how they work and all that stuff and by knowing how they work, and knowing what they are both sides of them may give you a little bit better edge in determining which one you think is better for you..
"eight hundred thousand dollars" Discussed on The Dave Ramsey Show
"Have eight hundred thousand dollars or more. Probably more in growth that you pay no taxes on if it's a Roth. If you leave it alone. You do not have to pay the taxes now on the one seventy five, but you will pay taxes on the whole thing as you pull it out. If you never pull it out, and you die and somebody else they're gonna pay taxes on it. Based on all of that. The Roth is a great deal. So do I wanna pay taxes on eight hundred or a million dollars thousand or a million dollars or not don't wanna trade that for taxes now on one seventy five? Oh, I'm gonna pay Texas on seventy five now. Now, do you have any cash in are you debt free? I am that free except for my house. Okay. What do you own your home? Twenty seven thousand good. I mean cash. I have a fully funded emergency twelve thousand. That's all. I haven't even investments that are investments that are not retirement. I do not. I'm a teacher. And so yeah, a lot of money wrapped up also a pension tail. But here's the thing. I would want your house to be paid off. And I'd want you to have the forty thousand dollars in taxes at this is going to cost you to be able to do this. Right. You need to do those. So let's pay off the house first, and then scrape up the money to pay the taxes that this roll over would create and if you do that in the next few years, and you leave it alone up into your seventies. The Roth conversion will make sense based on what I just told you. Okay. That tax out at about twenty five percent. Yeah. It's gonna be pretty close. And if you don't pay the taxes separately, and you use the money you reduce the size of the account to pay the taxes. You don't gain anything by converting it to a Roth then it's a mathematical wash. So the only way this make sense to pay the taxes out of extra moneys, and I wouldn't even do that until you got your house paid off. So let's get the house paid off only twenty seven thousand Waco, you're killing it when you go teacher. And then then let's save up forty grand. And if you can do that next couple of years, I still would at that point would roll it to a Roth IRA and converted to a Roth. That's how play it. So hey, good questions..

"For eight hundred thousand dollars nine hundred thousand dollars a million dollars only to have them no longer be able to make a living what's the solution i i don't know what the solution is and if you have a solution i would absolutely love to hear it i've been somewhat concerned over the over and lifts issue and because my concern is is that they'll put all of the metered taxis all of the car services out of business in community after community and then they'll jack up their prices because then they'll essentially have a monopoly control the market the sort of the walmart model the home depot model what walmart comes to town home depot comes to town they're open twenty four hours they slash their prices so that nobody else can stay in business and then all of a sudden when the local hardware store closes when all these other local businesses that sell the same things that walmart sells clothes then they jack up their prices well why won't that happen with uber and left what's the solution now the head of the taxi workers alliance i can never pronounce your name correctly by revie design i think is her name she says that there should be no fares lower than the metered fair i don't agree with that i mean maybe it's just maybe i'm being somewhat selfish in that i don't necessarily want to spend more money to get around because i'll tell you if i have the opportunity of choosing uber or taxi i choose uber because you know why eighty percent of the time ninety percent of the time it's cheaper it's less expensive so i don't wanna pay more but is that the only solution is there any so honestly we have a very bright audience here.
