"So talk about how that's the most important question isn't it. Larry that we gotta get fifty plus one to say yes. We want gavin newsom out. That's why by far is the most important question you pointed out fifty percent plus one vote yes to recall gavin newsom in the second part is who do you want to replace him and obviously i want people to vote for me but you asked me what i would do if i became governor. Tell you what i won't do. I won't impose statewide mandates the way. This guy has on bass face masks. In on vaccines he has mandated that every government worker who's not been vaccinated be tested once a week and we'll be required to wear face masks. Get work i don't get it. I've been vaccinated. I'm not antibac- because the by age because of other underlying calmer abilities but for crying out loud a lot of people and made it very different decision And for him to do Tell people who assume the risk you need to wear a mask at work to protect yourself against other people whom the risk if anti signed and and he's supposed to be the one pro science i'm also going to declare a state wide emergency on housing. We have environmental law that prevents developers from developing low cost housing. Which is why the price of a home in california as eight hundred thousand dollars which is anywhere from a hundred and fifty percent of the two hundred percent above the national average. I'm also going to declare a state wide work on water. We have all sorts of projects for more reservoirs to raise dams and the storm water underground. We do have our west seasons and we're not doing that waters rainy right out into the pacific ocean because of these projects are being held up for fear of lawsuits. I'm gonna declare statewide emergency on water. So they're going to be some big changes when i get there even though Dealing with a hostile legislature.

"Larry elder is with us in. Larry i love so much a the aspect of your personal story and i think californians relate to sharing stories about your your father about your brother about your life. Your love of california people appreciate a common sense approach to what has been a distorted twisted version of the american dream by gavin. Newsom and larry. I must say i'm really encourage. The governor newsome is attacking you the way it is because for a while though he is because for a while he ignored you on. Evidently he must think that You do have the momentum that many of us are praying that you have Mike you're being charitable. This man is scared to death. He just gave up to interviews one with the editorial board of the la times and one with the editor boards of a bunch of other newspapers slamming. The table cursing angry. He went on with went to full captain clear on the scene from the cain revoke i was on the witness stand and kind of broke down had a mental breakdown yet. He mentioning my name for the first time. Because i'm the one he's afraid of. And i'm the one who can talk to black and brown people. Because i'm from the hood you pointed out. My dad came in nineteen forty sevens. You bought a house at now is worth six hundred thousand dollars. Because of the outrageous cost of living in california. The average price of a home is now eight hundred thousand dollars. A one hundred percent more than the eric price at home in america largely because of these environmental extremists that have taken over sacramento and run the state in the last twenty or thirty years gavin. Newsom as afraid. I'm going to be able to explain this way. So then joe jones six back can connect the dots between the outrageous cost of a home in california and left wing policies and sacramento and the rising crime and letting policies in sacramento this attack on the police this false assertions the police are engaging in systemic races.

I can break the stranglehold over the democratic party. They have on minorities.

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.

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.

Columbia Sportswear's Gert Boyle Faced Down Sexism and Ageism

"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. Times. Now calls the largest outerwear brand in the United States, a three billion dollar business. Gert Boyle was born gertrude lamb from in Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, four, when she was thirteen, the family fled Nazi Germany moving to Portland Oregon there her father lamb from bought the Rosenfeld hat company worried about antisemitism. 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. I would just as soon run this business into the ground myself that encounter galvanized Gruden Tim with a combination of unconventional strategies including being the first to use the waterproof fabric. GORTEX. They saved Colombia and set it on its growth path while all of their outdoor industry rivals including the north face in Patagonia. Marketed their wares to elite climbers and adventurers girding in Tim, we're happy to sell their products. Products at department stores at lower prices that strategy shocked the young industry and it worked so too did the Marketing Campaign Gert? Boyle is best known for the one that featured her as just what she was. One tough mother that campaign which ran from nineteen, eighty, four to two, thousand, five depicted gert down to earth mob oil. Now, take no nonsense mother who didn't suffer fools gladly, and who would allow nothing less than perfection A. A string of TV ads showed Gert using her son Tim as a product Tester to prove that they're outerwear was both warm and waterproof. In the first. 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. Straw apprentice out of the same era for the boundary peak parker quoted the Middle Aged Gert, saying I've got hot flashes to keep me warm. You'll need something that zips mob boils tough. 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?

"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.

"And now reporters are finding hard to track down where these thousands of books actually ended up for Baltimore. The revelations about mayor Pugh represent the latest breach of trust in the institutions that are supposed to keep a big city up and running joining us now or Alec McGillis reporter for propublica. And Liz Billy reporter with the Baltimore Sun. Alec. Liz nest have you on thank you. Hi, liz. I want to start with you this scandal centers on a series of children's books, but also fairly serious accusations of corruption concerning its author the mayor. A Baltimore where exactly is all about. I think what's interesting, and what has gotten the attention of so many people about this story is that it's actually very simple, the mayor sold eight hundred thousand dollars worth of books to various groups in the city. The major buyer was the university of Maryland medical system, but she's also sold books to Kaiser Permanente to other individuals, for instance, that prominent businessmen who yesterday we found out had written a check for a hundred thousand dollars for one buck the the questions that have been raised as what did those individuals who bought books get in return because not all of the books have been printed. Apparently, although we haven't been able to track all of them down. And the other question is was there a conflict of interest? In other words, in some cases, the institutions that bought the books. Also had either legislation. They wanted to past or had contracts with the city that were under review at the time. They they purchased the box the books themselves are not in our public, libraries. They are not part of any curriculum and we've gone to publishing houses and book agents who say they would never have been published by reputable publishing house to be clear. These are twenty page paperbacks with awkward illustrations in what's the nature of wrongdoing alleged wondering, well there are now six investigations into what's happened. And I'm sure there will be more. The most serious is being conducted by the state prosecutor at the the quest of governor Larry HOGAN, and they will be looking at that group of state prosecutor only looks at basically political corruption, but they're also. Also investigations by the city council by the university of Maryland medical system, and by the board of ethics. I should say the mayor has been very sick. She was hospitalized with pneumonia last week. And when she got out of the hospital, she held a press conference on Thursday in which she showed documentation that sixty thousand books had been printed and delivered to the school system, which actually didn't ask for the books. But in any event, she has said almost nothing since then L A, please help us understand the backdrop against which this is playing out. You wrote a recent piece in the New York Times magazine that places what we're now seeing with mayor Pugh is just the latest flip up in a much bigger citywide breakdown. When did these troubles start? What we're seeing here in Baltimore. The last few years is a really kind of extrordinary general institutional breakdown kind of unraveling that has been happening the city starting most clearly right after the death of, Freddie. Great from injuries. He got in police custody in two thousand fifteen and the protests and unrest that followed his death after that event, which got a lot of worldwide. Attention we've had this unbelievable surging violence in the city, Baltimore's open violence city, of course, but we've actually seen our homicide rate dropping quite considerably in the years prior to that we got under two hundred one year in two thousand eleven we've now spiked for four straight years, we've been over three hundred homicides, we had more more homicides in the city couple years ago than all of New York City, which is fourteen times larger than Poltimore extrordinary where basically the only city in the country that has returned to early nineteen nineties levels of violence back in the crack era. And on top of that. We've had an unbelievable police corruption scandal than folded the last couple years to mind boggling levels of corruption in this one plainclothes unit and the police department had an endless cycle of police. Commissioners about one per year cycling out the last few years, and then just this general sense of void of leadership in in city hall was really struggling to sort of get us hands on his file and exert any real sense of thirty. And then on top of that. Now, you have this just wild scandal coming out with these these children's books. So it really is kind of a breakdown in ordering governance wanting to to understand about Baltimore's that for all of Baltimore's a longstanding troubles that we we all know about incredible blight and supreme flight and disinvestment and all that the city actually is doing okay economically. This is not a story about total economic collapse. Like you saw Detroit. Around the time of the recession where city goes into total, bankruptcy and just kind of falls apart ecconomic. That's not what's going on here. This is collapse of ordering governance was mayor doing before this story broke out. I wouldn't say that she was a wildly popular mayor. She had all of these sort of issues with the police department that had come out mayor Pugh is reelection next year. They'll be a primary next spring that'll be the decisive election. And there had been talk about her being having fairly strong prospects for reelection race raise quite a bit of money. There hadn't been any real announce Strong's challengers yet to her and so looking like, she might she might be able to kind of ease into a second term despite not being all that popular. Really when important thing about her to keep in mind that she she won election last time with very narrow win over a fryer. Mayor someone who served to mayors previous to her who had herself been. Forced out of office over ethics and corruption charges, which charges that now held up against what's happening now actually look relatively smaller scale just in terms of the sheer amount of money involved. So that's sort of tragicomic element to this. Where Baltimore's now once again, dealing with these issues after having elected someone basically because she was not that prior mayor who is also dealing with ethics issues. I think one of the fascinating issues here is that the scandal extend so far beyond mere pew and into the community of business leaders and charities. And so we think that there is a lot of tentacles here that extend well beyond the mare you wrote in your recent piece that it's hard to describe Baltimore's quote unraveling and that the national political discourse lack of vocabulary for the city's ills what do you mean by this what? Why that is that there's been a lot of attention nationally, these last few years to the whole issue of police reform, and and dealing with cessive policing police brutality. Police harassment of of citizens, especially African American ones. And that's been very necessary conversation because of all the events we saw happening around the country in Ferguson, and Cleveland and Staten Island and elsewhere in the two thousand fourteen fifteen range, but Baltimore's actually dealing with these last years on the policing front is actually sort of the inverse of excessive policing, there's pretty widespread consensus here in the city that one big reason for this incredible surge violence that we've had has been essentially a pullback by the police that has left a lot of neighborhoods, especially the city's very heavily segregated black neighborhoods exposed to to crime and violence and create a kind of negligence by by the police body thirties these neighborhoods, so we're we're the the problem of of equal protection is not just refraining from harassment and brutality in certain neighborhoods. But it also is a problem of simply not providing good policing and protection in certain neighborhoods in that has been sort of lost. This nationwide debate around police reform, it's been conversation about how do we rain in the police when in fact, what Baltimore's dealing with these last couple years is is the opposite form of official negligence. Are we still witnessing the aftermath of that situation? Now, it's volved initially after Freddie, Gray's, death and the chargers by the district attorney. There was great upset among the police over those charges the feeling that that it was inappropriate to bring those charges because in fact, very little was known about exactly what had happened to cause for the grace death in the back of that policeman in. And so there was great sense of agreement over six of their colleagues haven't been charged. And there was what was really now is hard to hard to deny a pullback by the police in those initial months. Those wants this incredible spike in violence, we up over forty homicides of month in those first few months in the spring of two thousand fifteen and the reasons given for. Pullback evolve. Then over the next couple of years into all the uncertainty around what is known as the consent decree. The is now facing a federal consent decree where it's basically agreed with the department US department Justice to reform police department of federal judges enforcing consent decree, and there's they're basically new guidelines around how the police need to conduct themselves, and there's been great uncertainty among the police around just what that means. They are still allowed to do not do in in carrying out their jobs of policing. There's in. That's a that's a real uncertainty because they've gotten very little guidance in these last couple years over what this consent decree means. They've had this endless cycle of commissioners. There's been no real training in. So the police have been left on sure of what they can still do Risley dealing with that uncertainty by a lot of cases, not getting out of their cars, and they're just endless stories about police sitting there cruisers scrolling through their phones, and and not actually getting out and in policing whether its confronting a whole bunch of young men on the corner who may or may not be selling drugs that sort of thing. And so there there has just been this this continuing sense that we have a police force that is not fully engaged in policing seen is real abdication of duty. Wasn't it? Exactly. That's what's been kind of lost in a lot of this ongoing debate around police reform that we have to do have to worry about the responsibility and official abuse of power that comes. With excessive policing. We also have to worry about please simply not doing their job at the pain to do and recognize that there's also issued equal protection on that score through so many residents. I spoke to heard from in reporting article in the New York Times magazine who just talk about their incredible sense of fear in these neighborhoods and their desire to have police doing good policing in their communities. Yeah. I mean, I would also add that one of the deep problems with the police department right now is that there aren't enough officers. They had a difficult time attracting them and training them. And so part of the problem people believe is that there just aren't enough officers on the street and not enough backup for police officers who are trying to do their best alad Mikulas is reporter for propublica.

"Eight hundred thousand dollars for student loan. So the house. Also, just basic moral what to do. And and even if you don't care. They are still children here in the world. Gatien to that. And you say dear. I've been working on this for X amount of years. It's like. We need. That's plenty folks. That's that's plenty of Alexandria Cossio Cortes, sharing the innermost thoughts in her mind as she prepares some sort of vegan dish. For dinner. Alexandria, Kasi Cortes, my favorite. I, you know, she she mentioned millennials debt. According to Bloomberg millennials have passed one trillion dollars in debt. Ladies and gentlemen, a trillion dollars my poor millennial friends. This is why I believe they have embraced. Socialism. And I wrote about it. I am a senior columnist at townhall dot com. And I wrote about in my Monday column entitled that's a hard pass on socialism millennial suckers, let me let me share a brief reading from my column while the unkillable ideological cockroach that is socialism seems to be enjoying a resurgence primarily among stupid and or apple millennials. There are three key groups who will oppose any such transition here in America. There are ex military folks, like me who served in the ruins of socialist country and saw the way they poison a culture. Oh, and literally the landscape to socialism is always an environmental atrocity. They're also folks like my wife who escaped from murderer socialist how holes where you're scummy Vara t shirt around her, and she will cut you. And then they're arrested the normal Americans who are both aware of socialism's one hundred million corpse tally and who don't particularly. You want a bunch of aspiring campus Castro's taking power and bossing them around for eternity. Here's the thing. And I said it before and I'm not worried about socialism because I'll never live in a socialist America, it either will not happen or will happen after I and millions of others are dead fighting for the constitution. That's right, folks. I would rather die on a pile of hot brass then live in a socialist America. So this is not really my problem. But a problem for the millennials who would have to live with it. Sadly, a lot of millennials are, and how do I put this delicately really stupid and eager to create a system that empowers aspiring little commissars to bully normal? America's. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez is the voice of her generation. Well, she's a voice of some generation. And she's not the voice of the entire generation. I had the I had the honor of being able to lead. American millennials when I was a an army Colonel retired about four years ago. And I gotta tell you, they're great. They're outstanding. They are smart, and they are resourceful, and they are tough. They're great, folks. And I'm sorry that those millennials get lumped in the pinko commie weirdos. Who think Alexandria, Cossio Cortez is an important voice. And I say to you, Alexandra Cossio Cortez and all similarly situated socialist millennials who are concerned about the moral.

"Okay. Susan. Let's. Take a look at this last situation. So this one, and let's contrast it really what the one that. We just described two segments ago. This one was a couple comes in. They have no kids. They have a house worth about eight hundred thousand dollars. They have a rental property worth about one fifty. And they got about four fifty in an IRA in hunt and ten thousand in the Bank, you know. So you start adding all that stuff. You heard about a million five give or take. And they said, you know, we were listening in. And we know we we we we have basic wills in place. But it sounds to me like from your shows that we really don't have enough things covered because we just have simple wills that basically leaves everything to each other. And isn't that a problem? I said, well, it really depends on on some some answers to questions that I have for you. Right. So I started asking him I said well. You have an estate tax situation here. I said first of all do you want to avoid probate? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Avoiding probate fine. I go, but it's not urgent for them because they don't have any kids and not concerned. Yeah. They probably own everything jointly right now. Like most people who have simple wills that say, I leave everything to each other. And and all of you listening with simple wills again, turn up the volume. This is the time to listen because here's what you can do and what runs into so. Yeah, they leave everything to each other. It's joint. There's no probate on the first death anyway and on the second death. If it goes to probate, they don't really care because there's really no immediate family. So that was the first question. So probate wasn't that important. The second question was I just say, well, what about your wishes when you pass away? Do you really have anybody? It's one thing not to have children. That's fine. But do you have nieces or nephews are you know, that you're really close to because sometimes if you have siblings that have children, they're like your children, if you don't have children, and you can be really close to them know what we don't have any siblings. No nieces. No nephews we have. Really, you know, we're really there's really no one that were really interested in in really saving assets for and and in fact, we're probably more charitable inclined than anything else. And I said, okay. Well, that's a very important factor to consider now all of you listening. This might not be you. You might be sitting there having simple wills, but have children and grandchildren that you really wanna leave a too. So keep that in mind when you're listening to these facts because I might not be giving you the same answer. I give to them. And I think you're going to be shocked when you hear what I recommend it. Okay. So I I said all right. So we're not really worried about probate and easy enough to avoid any way on the first death by just owning everything jointly not really worried about estate taxes. First of all, they don't have any federally. And we're not really worried about estate taxes when we die anyway. Because neither of you will ever pay it. Right. You just leave everything to the spouse. No tax. And when the surviving spouse dies, well, even if there's tax do, you know, ain't paying it. And you don't care. Well, it's not even so much that I said, they is they still don't want the money to go to the state if they don't have to they said, they were charitably. Inclined. Well, leave the assets to each other on the surviving. Spouses, death, it goes to charity. You get a charitable deduction for state tax purposes, when you leave things to charity, and you're washing your hands to the estate tax problem all together. And you know, what folks how you leave your assets that's all detailed in Todd's guide that he has written for the month of February. It's revoke -able versus irrevocable trust shows, the differences shows the similarities, and you know, what the dispositive provision. Hi, you're leaving things behind there. The same in both types of trust. So find out the right type.

"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..
